T. G. Barlow  of the Methodist church performing  the ceremony. Mr. McPharlane has  been a- resident of the district for  over twenty years, and a number of  his friends in this city went up the  river to congratulate him.  _-' Short course lectures for farmers  will be., held in the Miners' Union  hall under the * auspices of the  Grand Forks Valley Farmers' institute on.Seturday, March 21, at 2:30  and 8 p.m. ; The s eaker will be  Wm. Schulmerich; who will give, a  cow demonstration; H. E Upton,  whose subject is -"Poultry"; B. Hoy,  ."Control of; "Fire Blight". Mr.  Schulmerich will also give "an address on "Hogs and .Dairy  Cattle."  Owing to> the'efforts of the British  " Columbia Poultry  association   the  * authorities at Ottawa are at last be-  . ginning to realize that ��������� the   poultiy  -breeders of   this province-'have   a  - genuine grievance.  Several resolutions have been-forwarded to'various'/officials at Ottawa, asking that Jhe contagious diseases of animals act be - amended so  'that- the- Dominion veterinary inspectors could inspect all" live.'and  dead poultry.entering-the province.,  Conriderable live ponJli-j -aie- 'being  imported, ostensibly for the purpose  ��������� of killing for the markets, but   are,'  however, being sold to settlers at reduced- prices.   In   some   consignments the majority of the fowls have  been found to be suffering from one  or the other of the  contagious   diseases   attacking     poultry.     These  fowls   have , been   sold     broadcast  throughout the province, the   result  being that in some "districts   which  have heretofore been  healthy, poul  try,  fc.-eeders   nave" had  these diseases attack their flocks.  Word has just / een received by  the secretary of th| Provincial Poul  try association, stating that J. H.  Hare, of the poultry division, department of agriculture, Ottawa, is  to visit the province and make an  investigation into the majter. In the  meantime the provincial association  is leaving no stone unturned to secure redress, and in March all of the  affiliated associations, numbering  28,*are forwarding a resolution to  the veterinary director general dealing with the mBtter.  - The Grand Forks board* of trade  has moved into its permanent rooms  in _ the ' Averill building, next the  city hall, on First street. The new  quarters are quite commodious, and  the boar has decidedly taken a  step forward.

The  poles have been shipped to'all parts  of.Canad =land the .United .States,  some going as far east as Montreal,  and "south into Texas.  Mr. Brown states that he is 'starting ,a camp on his own laud, and  wilLgetout an additional "thousand  poles.' "        .' "    "   ���������  (By Spencer Percival.)  Tne writer has often   been   asked  the question which breed be prefers  and why, and this short article   at  tempts to answer these questions.  I prefer White Wyandottes to any  other breeds,  -First���������Bacause;! have found them  more. profitable ' than .-.any *''.other.  ^Teeus* tried, by me, "and I .have tried  all the breeds usually kept for commercial purposes;.-. --��������� ���������'���������"  " Second���������Because they are gentle  and tame and more pleasant to  handle.  ^Third���������-Because of all the varieties kept for utility purposes they  iook as well in a large flock as any,  and perhaps better than any, particularly against a backgaound of  green grass.  The first reason given above will  probBbly apweal to the majority of  people, and so I propose to deal now  with the question of profit. Egg  production is the principal source of  revenue on a ponltry ranch, but it  is not the only source. The breeders of Leghorns and other Mediterranean varieties in their zpalous  championship of "egg machines"  only, overlook the fact that people  want fowls on their dining tables  and will pay good prices for the  same.  When Biddy has completed two  or three laying seasons she has about  done her best for humanity, but if  she is a fair size and has a good  breast, like Wyandottes generally  'have, she is still worth something  on the market* If one cares to dress  her for market she will  bring  from  grice; the cockerels will weigh 2 lbs.  at eight or ntne'weeks,   and sell  at  35c to 40c per pound,  or 75c each.  Contrast the foregoing .with  the   lot  of the Leghorn man. If, be  hatches  early enough to get a good price for  broilers, his pullets will\lay a .few  egg9 in July or August, then go into"  a   moult - and  are   non-productive  when f-ggs are  dear.    If he   delays  hatching   to   get his pullets at the  right time, his broilers are too late  on the market for  the   best   prices.  Inslead   of   being   35c   per lb. the  price is down   to 23c, and   at   nine  weeks -iris   1% lb.   birds-, are   only  worth,35c.    Turning to egg production   and   profits   therefrom.    The  Wyandottes   and  Leghorns   break  about even in^ production, but   the  former give probably a greater profit  as taking the average of all   poultry  flocks throughout the country   undoubtedly   more eggs are  produced  by the former in the early   part   of  the   winter   when   eggs  are at the  highest mark.    October, November  and the first half of   December   are  the mouths that*' count.    The average Leghorn man finds if difficult to  time his hatching period to get eggs  in these winter months.  If the reader wants confirmation  of this statement let him turn to  figures reported from the egg laying  contest how on at Victoria, Figures  for'the first two month, November  and Decern ber, have' been published. -The 17 pens of Leghorns  laid 1858 eggs, or an average of  109.29,per pen for two months..--.  The six7 pens of White Wyandottes laid 869 eggs. o������:..an  ayer-*"*-*'  'of 144.83   per' pen   in   the   same  period, a difference in favor of. the  W.yandottes' of "practically     three  dozen eggs per pen of six birds. The  average price per dozen as given   in  the   reports  was   62|- cents for the  two  months,' so-  that  th,e pens of  White Wyandottes averaged   $1.87  each  more than   the  Leghorns   in  those two months.  .

Frank Daniel's Expensive Sunset  - In the early part of-Frank Daniel's  career he was one of a company touring the small towns, but business had  been very'poor and meals correspondingly light.

Again he looked, with the same result. Then with her" pretty, fingers  she went into her bag, consulted a  slip of paper and said:  Oh, I beg'pardon.
