New Features Will Be Added to the School Garden-
'  ing This Year ���
This year the board of trustees
and the staff of- tbe public school
intend to enlarge -the usefulness of
the rural science studies, and in addition to the regular school gardening as carried on last year, they
are offering assistance and guidance
to the pupils in carrying out a few
of the supplementary home projects as suggested by the department of education.
While the work is in no way compulsory for the pupils, many intermediate and senior students have
already expressed a desire to undertake such projects. ' Boys will un
dertake the care, feeding and management of chickens, laying hens^
young farm -animals,, and dairy
cows; the care of home lawns or
flower plots, and the collection of in
sects, plants and seed3. The. girls
also will undeatake some of these,
though many desire to follow the
canning, cooking and sevvingconrses.
Lessons in plain sewing' .will* be
given by" two of the staff once a week
to those pupils wishing to avail
themselves of the privilege.
Pupils will be required- to keep
records of their work, so that it may.
be carried on intelligently, and in
all of the projects the two aims���the
educational aud: the economical���
will be kept clearly.in mind.
In the autumn, when, the work js
completed, tbe best products in both
classrooms and rural science will

A. shipment of ten tone of.ore from
the Voigt property, near Princeton,
was made last week to tbe Green
wood smelter. The ten tons were
made up of picked samples, and the
ore was shipped by express. It is
said that the $3,000,000 with New
York capitalists now pending hinges
largely upon the result of this smelter test '..    [
W. R. Henderson and Dr. Rutber
ord head the syulicate.' Emil Voigt
owns the property.
The Voigt property on Copper
mountain is among the-best known
non producing mineral claims in the
province. It is nearly fifteen years
since E.mil Voigt located his first .
claims ou that mountain, and since
that time he has gradually^ been
adding to his holdings until now
there are about fifty claims. Upwards of 850,000 has been spent iu
exploration work consisting of dia
mond drillidg, shafts, tunnels, open
cuts, pits, etc, so thai some large
bodies of low grade ore have been
feirly well proven. No shipments on
a large scale bavej been made, but
test shipments have been sent out
from time to time.

Well  Known - Speakers  on
Farm Topics Here Next.
Thursday and Friday
The spring meetings of the Grand
Forks Farmers' Institute will be
held in this city on Thursday and
Friday, March S and 9. On the program as speakers for the first day,
at 8 p.m%are W. E McTaggart and
M. S. Middleton. The former will
speak on "Advertising and Marketing Fruit," and the latter will take
for his subject, "Control of Apple
Scab." On Friday, at 1:30 p.m.,
Dr.aA. Knight will speak on "Live
Stock Diseases" "and H. E. Upton
on "Poultry Raising."
Everywhere one   hears, and   par-   .
ticularly the man on the, land,   that
greater production is necessary if we -
are to lower the cost of living.    The
Rt. Hon. David Lloyd George, in an
address a short time ago, asked   the
farmers  of the  empire to put forth
every   effort   to  produce increased
crops this year.    The Hon.  Martin .
Burrell  only  a   few days ago made
the same appeeal to the  farmers of
Canada.
���  That the farmers of   British .Col-
umbio will do their share   there,  is
uo doubt, but perhaps some are not
a-   familiar   with   some   phases  of
farming and fruit growing   as, they
should like to be.   To   help farmers
and fruit growers to overcome their
difficulties, the department of agriculture, in working with the College
of Agriculture of   the University  of
British Columbia, has  arranged an
itinerary    of   meetings   throughout .
British Columbia where members of
the two staffs   will   talk on  agricultural matters.    The speakers are all
experts in their own particular lines
and are speakers of no mean degree.
W.'E. McTaggart, prairie markets commissioner, whose office is
in Calgary,- will tell of the prairie
markets for fruit. He will also talk-
on advertising and what was done in
1916 to advertise British Columbia
fruit throughout western Canada.
H..E. Upton, poultry instructor,
will talk* on poultry matters. Mr.
Upton has bad many years' experience and is an authority on this
phase of agriculture.
M, 8. Middleton, district horticulturist for the Kootenay, will .deal

Speaking Easily and  Directly Into the  Telephone  Even telephone men of long experience are  surprised at the greater voice distinctness when  speaking directly into the telephone. When  you speak directly into the telephone, a lower  tone of voice can be used, and your friend can  hear easily.     " - :  Moreover, when you speak lower the actual  tone qualities of your voice are transmitted.  When you speak loudly, you unconsciously  ��������� adopt an unnatural���������.tone of voice, with the result that much of that intimacy that should be  associated with face-to-face conversation is  lost. ' ...:/���������'���������  A close  position to  the  telephone means ;'  easy talking and easy hearing.  BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, LTD.
