A careful census of industry of
British Columbia, made by the de

such industrial activity. A labor
shortage is imminent, reports the
ministor of lahor, Attorney Geueral
A M. Manson, untl little encouragement is beiug given men to go to tbe
prairies to assist in spring seeding.
"Every available worker will be
needed in this province by May 1,"
is Mr. Manson's statement, and
bearing this outcomes the announce

owing to higher prices being paid
lumber workers.
The government labor bureau is
already unable to supply tbe demand for men in some industries

Sapiro Marketing Methods for Fruit Industry
of Proviuce Meeting
With Success
Vancouver, April 4 —Success of
the application of Aaron Sapiro's cooperative marketing methods in Hritish Columbia's fruit industry is now
believed to bo practically assured.
The cooperatives are guaranteed by
the Bank of Montreal of financial
backing control of 8,5 per ceut of the
tonnage of tho province is assured
and only the appointment of a per™
manent manager remains to be dono.
On Saturday. March 31, the organization committee for tho grow, rs had
succeeded in signing up orchardists
representing 83 per cent of the production tonnage, according to in»
formation received by Capt. F. C.
Brown of the board of trade. Fully
9u per cent of the growers have
signed fivenyoar agreements, contracting to market their fruit through the
cooperative organization The organization aims to get not less than 85
per cent of the tonage signed up.

seed commissioner iii his bulli-tin
on "Weeds and Weed Seeds." In
friable soils the "weeder" is a useful
implement for that purpose. The
"tilling" harrow is bIeo satisfactory
for comparatively no-e soils and is
preferred as a weed destroyer on
firm or clayey land. Weeds are ir-
regnlar in time of germination; con»
seqnently it is necessary to apply
tbe weeder or barrow frequently
throughout the growing season Potatoes, or fields of corn or cereal
grains when sown wit.i a drill, may
advantageously be cultivated with
such implements once or twice before the crop distinctly shows above
the ground, and again, with corn
and ordinary grain crops, when the
plants are three to six inches high.
Even relatively heavy harrows ordinarily in use will do little damage
to the potatoes, corn or grain plants
if the land is not wet, while the
loosening of the surface soil beni lits
the crop in addition to the destiuo
tion of the weeds.
For perennial weeds or seedlings
that have become well rooted, a
cultivator having diamoni'-shiipcd
or otlier relatively broad shares is
needed for hoed crops. The disc is
a favored implement for destroying
weeds in a summer fallow or in pres
paring seed bed. When, however, it
is ^desirpd to unearth and remove
thu rootstocks of perennial wet-fig,
su h as couch grass, a narrow-
toothed cultivator that will loosen
the soil and bring the underground
vegetation to thi. suifnce, is preferred to an implement that will cut
the rootstocks, the small cuttings of
which may be exceedingly persist-
ent of growth.

Notes, Notions and Notables
The English cling to old ways. A bank in
London that has just celebrated its 250th an -
niversary still maintains the old practice of
having one member of the firm sleep every
night in a bedroom that overlooks the peaceful garden in the rear of the building. Every
morning at 9 o'clock he opens the front door
with a huge key.
Austria is no longer in the most hopeless
situation of all the European states. The
people are making sincere efforts to restore
an economic equilibrium and are beginning to
see the fruits of their labor. A government
loan, sanctioned by the League of nations and
financed by the Bank of England, has been
issued. Austria and Jugo-Slavia have signed
a protocol of friendship and are at work on a
new treaty of commerce. The crown has remained at stable exchange for four or five
months, the deficit ln the budget has been
largely reduced, foreign trade steadily im -
proves. The existence of the Austrian state
must depend ou good relations with the Dan-
ubiau states and Italy, but the Vienese know
what the situation requires and are trying to
accomplish it. Thanks to the support and encouragement of the League of Nations, Aus -
tria is, to say the least, convalescent.

that the walls were erected three thousand

But there never yet was a hive with just
one bee to each comb.
Nature commands pool effort.
Hundreds of bees to each comb makes a
comparatively quick and easy operation of
what would be an impossible task for one bee
working alone.
So what we do not see in the comb of honey
is the greatest lessou in one of the greatest
of success makers—Cooperation.
On every side Nature flaunts this lesson in
man's face.
The eeed itself is nothing.
Sun, soil and moisture must cooperate with
the latent germ in order to produce plant life.
The most solid rock is only cooperating
The strongest man is weak alone. Only by
working with others or winning others to
work with him can he achieve worthwhile results.
The biggest business is bound for failure if
its workers do not cooperate.
It is a machine whose parts do not work together. It may run for a while on its own
momentum, but it is headed for the dump-
To cooperate is to join forces and  some
thing more.    It is to join hearts as well as
hands, and slip a little soul in the bargain.
Not to cooperate is to court loneliness, life -

What you don't see in this comb of honey
is a little army of bees workiug harder than
Trojans ever worked, sucking the ambrosia
from thousands of clover blossoms.
Your pound of honey contains 7000 guins
of sugar Each clover blossom provides about
ono eighth of a grain, so this pound represents
the sweet fruitage of 56,000 clover heads.
But the clover head is composed of about
sixty florets or flower tubes. To extract the
hidden sweet the bee must probe each of
these. This means some sixty separate operations on each flower.
If one bee contracted to gather a pound of
honey, that bee would have to explore 3,360, -
000 of these tiny tubes to secure the material.
Allowing five seconds for each exploration
and twelve hours to a day, it would take this
bee some four hundred days to produce a

While in mid Pacific, the wireless
operator of the Canadian Paciflo
Steamship "Empress of Russia" waa
in touch with the Leafield wireleas
station in England, and received a
aumber of news items. "The ether

Still another case of children
travelling alone. Elmer Laan, five
years eld, and Roland Callwell, seven
years old, both living on St. Denis
street, Montreal, were miaaed, by
their parents who did not hear ef
them after their disappearance until
notified by Canadian Pacific Rail-
W.1.Y officials that the children were
in Quebec city, te which place they
had begged a ride.
The initial shipment of cattle sinea
thc Embargo removal was recently
inspected by the Hon. W. P. Motherwell, Minister ef Agriculture, in tha
C. P. R. stock yards, Montreal. They
were stall-fed Ontario cattle from
along the Canadian Pacific weat of
Toronto, with the exception ef ena
car load of Western cattle, the latter being in the best condition da-
spite the fact tkat they had had a
2K hours run from North Bay. The
minister expressed the opinion that
the cattle being shipped were of tha
first quality.
It has remained fer the Caaadiaa
Pacific experimental farm at Strata-
more to demonstrate beyond the possible shadow of doubt that the ia-
expensive trench silo system of pro-
Tiding winter fodder for cattle is,
nnder favorable conditions, quite
equal ti the costly structures which
have in the past been utilized and
that the silage is in every sense excellent. This was proved te tha

The Objcuts of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tained, are: "To provide a Homo and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; tu
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every yoar; and to return these little ones to tlieir parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various provinces reveals the fact tbat there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
bas yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they bave now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is tha only one iu the British Empire. Let us havo the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boa.id Whilo the
Home is to bi l.rjited in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected, Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
