Leached ashes contain  very little potash, for this element  is readily soluble in water.  Tbe soils most benefited by wood  ashes are light sandy and gravelly  loams, and mucks and peatty soils.  They are also especially valuable  for sour soils deficient in lime. The  application may be from 600 to  2000 pounds per acre,, preferably  broadcasted in tbe spring on the  prepared land before seeding and  harrowed in.  TERMS OF VICTORY  Victoria, Oct. 24.���������-An; early  commencement o������ the investigation  into the com plaints made by mine  operators in the Slocan against the  schedule of smelting charges by the  Consolidated Mining & Smelting  company, brought into, effect early  this year, will be made by the federal government. Hon. Mortin J3ur-  rell, federal minister of mines, has  informed Hon. William Sloan. The  first sitting of the commission���������'��������� will  be held at Nelson on October 31.  Mr. Burrellalso annou-nced that  the advisability of installing a testing mill and laboratory for industrial research along metallurgical  lines is now being considered by the  federal department;  ROBERT STEAD'S  NEW NOVEL  A Story Verified  When Bill Jewell was down in old  Kentucky, a couple of weeks ago,  he casually mentioned the fact that  in Grand Forks we raised Irish Potatoes that weighed two pounds  apiece. His auditors sarcastically  inquired if he was talking about  pumpkins, and* Bill allowed the  subject to drop. This week Mr.  Jewell boxed a 2^ pound spud and  sent it down to his friends.  Save Your Wood Ashes  The experience of many genera  tions of farmers and gardeners has  proven the high value of unleached  wood ashes as a fertilizer, especially  for .clover, corn, farm roots and  vegetables and fruit crops generally.  Wood ashes contain no nitrogen and  supply no humus, but as far as mineral plant food is concerned there is  probably no compounded mineral  fertilizer on the market that is more  effective and more lasting. They furnish potash, lime, phosphoric acid  ���������the very elements taken from the  soil by the forest trees,^ and, returned to tht soil, they will supply,  in the very best form and combinations, the mineral plant food ie  quired by our crops.  According to analyses by the di  vision of chemistry, experimental  farms, unleached hardwood ashes,  fiee from sand, etc., will contain  between 5 and 6 per cent potash,  about 2 per cent of phosphoric acid  and from 20 to 30 per cent of lime.  Before the war Germany supplied  all the potash used for fertilizing  purposes; since that supply has  been cut off, potash has tremendously increased in price, so that  now it is worth almost ten times  what it was in the early part of 1914,  and as a consequence itjhas practically disappeared from commercial  fertilizers. The potash in 100  pounds of'good quality wood ashes  is now worth from $1 to $1.50.  Owing to the scarcity and high  price of coal, farmers will be burning more wood this winter than has  been customary for many winters.  We counsel them to   save carefully  Robert J. Jtead, in his new novel,  "The Cow Puncher," (Toionto, the  Musson Book Co., Ltd., cloth $1.50),  has written a notable book with a  western Canada . setting. David  Elden, the cow puncher of the story,  grows to young manhood on a ranch  in ihe foothills, outside the influence  of church or school. At eighteen he  is accidentally thrown into the com  pany of a young eastern girl, who enkindles in him the ambition to be  somebody in the world.  With this purpose in view,young Elden leaves the ranch and goes to make  his fortune in a young western city.  The first night he is swindled out of  all his ready cash by a gang of card-  sharpers, and he takes a job next  morning as a coal heaver. For a time  it looks as though. Dave's .course  would be downward instead of up, but  he fortunately comes under influences  which revive his ambition for self-  betterment     '-  About this time the big . western  real estate boom breaks out, and  Dave's-course is meteoric. His wealth  conies quickly and goes as quickly.  Following the collapse of the boom a  tragedy in his love affairs sends him  as au ^enlisted man to France. In  the closing chapters is found one of  the highest patriotic notes struck by  any author during the war.  "The Cow Puncher" is decidedly  worth while. It is interesting and re  freshing, and at times inspiring, writ-  ten with all Mr. Stead's intimate  knowledge of the west and skill of de  lineation. Through the book runs a  happy vein of humor and philosophy  which is not the least of its charms.  It is illustrrted by Arthur. Heming,  ex lumberman and Northwest Mounted policeman, and is announced by  the publishers as an all-Canadian  booje.���������written by a Canadian, illustrated by a Canadian, and printed  and bound iu Canada. It should receive a warm welcome from the Canadian reading public. The United  States edition is issued by Harpers.  Many people are inquiring  about  the terms upon which the payments  for  Victory   loan bonds 1918 are to  be made. These vary somewhat from  those of the Victory "loan   bonds  of  last year.    In that loan the purchas.  ers got from the government  a   full  half year's interest, just  as   though  he had paid in full;,that is, the government allowed him interest   upon  his instalments yet   unpaid.    Thus  the   interest   paid  for the first half  year exceeded   5������  per  cent for the  period,    upon   the  money actually  paid. This year the tea ins" are   such  that the rate of interest is exactly 5������  per cent. Thus, to give a specific example:  If a person   buys   a   $100  bond   in   the present Victory loan,  he can, on or before the 1st   of November pay the $100, and will  be  entitled to a full half year's interest  on May 1, 1919.    If   he  wishes  to  pay in instalments, he will pay $10  on application. $20 on December 6,  January 6, February 6, and $31.16  on March 6.    These figures, it  will  seen, are 10 per cent on application,  20 per cent on December 6, January  6,  February   6, and 30 per cent on  March 6.   The $1.16 represents  the  interest on the r iustaln������ents  for  the  deferred period.  "Let me tell you what you ought  to see!" the stranger said eagerly.  Thereupon he sat down and filled  six or seven sheets'with a written  description of "things not in the  guidebooks," as he put it.  Four years later Mr. Rogers came  upon the manuscript, laid away in  his desk and forgotten. He was  startled when he saw the signature.  He said to Mr. Maclntyre:  "Do you know who that young  felloe from India was that was here  four years ago? It was Rudyard Kip-  liflg-   .

THE CAFETERIA  SYSTEM FOR HOGS  POTATOES SCARCE IN  EASTERN PROVINCES  Manitoba may have to supply Toronto and Montreal with . potatoes  this winter, Col. F, Jt Clarke, of the  Winnipeg food board office, announced  this week-  Col. Clarke has received a dispatch  from the food board at Ottawa asking for quotations on potato shipments  to the two provincial capitals.  Potataes are scarce in Ontario and  Quebec. Col. Clarke finds few shipments probable from Alberta and  Saskatchewan, but tubers are plentiful in Manitoba, where prices range  from 60c loose in car per bushel to  75c and SOc in sacks.  Much  of the  drudgery is taken  out of hog feeding by the use of the  self-feeder.    According to investiga  tions carried on at the experimental  farm   at   Ottawa,   hogs, after  they  have reached a certain age, do better  when fed   in   this way provided the  proper mixtures are  used.    Strange  to say, when properly handled, dan.  gerous and wasteful   overfeeding   is  uot so likely to occur with the self-  feeder as when meals  are  given   at  stated hours. It has heen shown that  the hogs are tbe best judges of when  they should take food.    The  feeder  is fully described in  Special   Circular No. 15, obtainable at  the   office  of the ' publications   branch of   tbe  department of agriculture at Ottawa.  This   bin-like   receptacle   is  easily  made at  a cost of   about ������10 even  when new lumber is used in its construction.  The Use of the Apple  "Those who make a liberal use  of apples will serve the dual purpose  of saving for shipment overseas such  articles of food as are fit for that  purpose and at the same time furnish a useful and valuable food for  the household."  'The apple without question is  the king of fruits. Whether fresh,  dried, evaporated or canned, it is a  wholesome food, easily prepared,  attractive and palatable at all  times."  ''Always cook apple9 in earthen  or granite utensils and use silver,  granite or wooden spoons for stir  ring. The use of the apple as the  basis for all manufactured jam is  well known. This is due to the large  amount of pectose which it contains.  There is no waste to u good apple;  even the paring and core may be  utilized for jelly. Fruits are classified  as flavor fruits and nutritive fruits���������  the apple comes under both of these  heads."  Extracts from a little booklet  issued by tbe fruit branch of the  Dominion department of agriculture, giving 160 recipes for the use  of the apple. The book can be had  free on application to the publications branch, Department of Agri  culture, Ottawa.  I Paris, Oct. 24.���������The versatility  of the tanks is being emphasized in  every story that comes from the  battlefields.  A British tank ordered to charge  a house which was a nest of Ger-  man machine guns, plunged against  the building amid a hail of bullets  on its steel sides. The fiast lunge  shook the house,the second brought  it down about the tank.which drove  through the wreckage, crushing the  Germans in the house and permitting no one to escape. Five other  houses were similarly reduced.  Another tank sighted a German  colonel in a wheatfield and started  after him. The German ran in circles, doubled and turned, but the  tank relentlessly followed. He  dashed into a trench and the tank  ran over it; he came out and the  tank followed. He bolted breathlessly across a field and the tank overtook him and forced him to surrender and took him aboard.  The Unknown Visitor  On a certain spring day in 1890 a  young many about twenty years of  age walked into the office of tbe  Philadelphia Inquirer on Chestnut  street. According to a writer in tbe  Philadelphia Public Ledger, he introduced himself to Joseph liogere  who was then at his desk, and remarked that he was on his way  from India by way of Japan to London.  "May I look round the building?"  was the next request of tbe  visitor.  He began by exploring the Inquirer plant from top to bottom,  asking innumerable questions about  tbe presses and the printing. No  mechanical detail was too small to  escape his interrogation. But he said  nothing about himself.  "I'm th nking of a trip to Japan  presently," remarked Mr. Rogers.  A Facetious Reporter  On my first visit to Cripple Creek  by train, writes Mr. Raphael Pum-  pelly in his Reminiscences, I had  quickly risen from an altitude of  six thousand feet to one of almost  ten thousand, adding greatly to the  apparent weight of my legs and to  the effort of walking to the hotel.  An enterprising reporter who had  watched    my   registering   accosted  me:  ���������   "Mr. Pumpelly, would you  mind  telling   me   how   you   like Cripple  Creek?"  "I have only just come from   the  station," I answered.  "Well, how do you like what you  did see?"  "My eyes were glued to the board  walk, and that seemed too narrow  for safety in a town full of  saloons."  "Were you ever in a mining camp  before?"  "Yes."  "Well, how does Cripple Creek  compare with those you have seen?"  1 laughed. "Oh, it overtops them  by���������several thousand feet," and 1  went away. The next morning some  one gave me a Denver paper containing an account of the interview  by its reporter.  "A Scientist in Camp.���������Rachel  Rumpelly has arrived in Cripple  Creek.

Dean, of the division of  horticulture, Olympia, Wash,, state  department of agriculture, is calling  the attention of fruitmen, and especially apple growers, to the fact that  fruit should be put into storage as  soon as possible after it has been  picked.  The extreme warm weather of the  autumu months has had a tendency  to hasten the ripening of apples,  and this makes immediate storage  all the more important to the grower who would realize  top prices  on  his crop.

It is the  new national day which for its benefits ought  to be as well known as Thanksgiving. The intention is to make known the tremendous  wealth of our Canadian seas and lakes, "now  largely going to waste because people's tastes  have run toward meat. At present the annual  value of Canadian fisheries is $52,000,000, or  only about one-eighth of a dollar a week for  each person. Forty-three years ago it was  $35,000,000. The fish industry and fish consumption have not kept pace with the general  progress of the country. A revival is long  overdue. The average price of fish is about  one-half that of -meat, so that the housewife  who insists upon getting fish from her local  dealer combats the high cost of living. National Fish day was established to give a right  direction to the thought of the people respecting fish in the ordinary home diet. Eat fish  October 31.  German methods of dealing with the small  nations that it noisily asserts that it has  "freed" are worth a moment's notice. Lithuania has elected a king, but the kaiser tells  him that he must not accept and adds that the  choice of Lithuania is between accept a Hohen-  zollerh prince and submitting to absolute annexation to Germany. In Finland, where a  majority of the people want a republican form  of government, the Germans have compelled  the temporary nr nistry to dissolve troublesome  parliament, which refused to vote for a monarchy, and have, caused it to be announced  that, if the Finns do not at once establish a  throne and put a German prince upon it, they  will have to accept a German military government. That is what Wilhelm II and his ministers mean when they talk of the "free determination of peoples.''"  They are going to call the wheat harvest of  1919 "the Liberty wheat harvest," and before  the 1918 crop was out of the fields plans were  afoot to increase the acreage of winter wheat  alone in the United States to at least 45,000,-  000 acres. That would be an increase of seven  per cent. The total harvest this year will  reach almost 900,000,000 bushels; but that  does not not mean what it would mean in normal times, for the "carry ov^r" of old wheat  is almost exhausted, and a reasonable amount  must be laid aside to furnish a wheat reserve  in case of crop failure next summer.  The great bell of the Colegne ealhedral,  which was cast from cannon taken by the  Germans in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870,  has been broken up for gun m^tal. Is that  not a symbol of profound significance? So  much of what Germany won in that war has  already gone into the melting pot���������so much  of its material gains, so much more of its  moral prestige among the nations. There is  more to follow; more will follow if the war  ends, not in an ineffecutal compromise, but in  the achievement of justice.  In a little while the geese will be going  south, and we shall probably hear again the  old story of the wonderful meteorological instinct that enables wild fowl to foresee a storm  and to start ahead of it.   Of course they have  A movement, started in Montreal and continuing in Chatham, Ont., might well be carried throughout Canada. This is the contracting idea as applied to farm lands. City men  with a little capital are forming syndicates to  buy tractors and break idle land under the  direction of practical contractors. This principle could be applied to regular farm lands  and would help solve the labor problem for  the Canadian farmer.  For the year ending July 1, 1919, the allies  look to the American continent for 17,550,000  tons of, meats, fats, sugar, feed grain and  breadstuffs. This means 5,730,000 tons more  than was shipped in the year ending July 1,  1918, and the surplus is 197,000 tons greater  than the entire shipments based upon the average for the three years before the war.  Conservation and production are absolutely  essential in Canada.  It is estimated that nearly five million people have died of starvation or malnutrition  during during the war. This total is more than  half the population of Canada.  It is no longer the hostess at the tea urn  who asks, "One lump or two?" but the coal  dealer. ������'''���������.

Particularly is this true of Canada, which has enjoyed  unexempted prosperity as a result of the war.  Many thousands of her sons have not hesitated to make the supreme sacrifice, but many  thousands more are doing better in a financial  way than they ever did before.
