A type of tube operating
from thehouse circuit has been
experimented with for several
years. Research laboratory
workers have seen what possibilities an elactron tube
possessed which had its filament heated byllO volts and
what innumerable advantages
it had over the tube that depended on a storage or dry
battery for its filament heating. Alternating current was
chosen to operate the tube,
because its use is almost universal today. Only in certain
sections oi large cities is direct current found, so that
more than the majority of
radio fans will be able to use
this tube.
The internal construction of
the tube differs from the usual
type of tubes in that the filament is enclosed in a porcelain tube which, in turn, is in
a metal sleeve. This filament
construcrion is supported
from the top of the tube
instead of the bootom, as
has heretofore been the prac
tice. On the outside ofthe top
of the glass is an insulating
plug having two terminals for
the filament connections. The
metal sleeve which is around
the porcelain tube acts as the
cathode of the tube and is
connected to one of the usual
filament prongs of the  tube.
The operation of the tube
is far from complicated.
Indications are that 1926 will be
one of the best tourist seasons ever
experienced by Montreal. It is estimated that 750,000 people -from all
over the continent visited Montreal
last year, while this year the number

It ia understood that a oontract

to Suva, Fiji Islands, by the Pacific

which is being established between
British possessions the world over.
In order to facilitate the work of

A favorite trick of the letter-box thief is to
fish through tbe slot with a piece of string, on
the end of which is a weight smeared with ad
hasive that sticks to the letters. To foil his
efforts there recently has been devised a screen

above the slot. The prongs make it practically
impossible to pull a letter through the slot, al
though it is easy enough for the postman to
insert the letter.

the owners of the Ethyl that it can be recov

piping immense quantities of sea water into a
bromine plant on shore, and much more
cheaply than it is at present got from the
waters of mineral springs. If the experiment
is a success, we may find the sea as well as the
land obliged to pay tribute to our highly organized industrial system aud dotted with
fleets of sea going chemical piants.
A good and tactful man was Mr. Haslam,
a pastor of Norwich, England. Once, says the
Kev. W. S. Kainsford in his Story of a Varied
Life, a neghboring cleric asked the parson to
take a mission in his church for ten days. Mr.
Haslam filled the old church. When he was
going back his host said, "How it you get the
people? I work hard. I visit regularly. I
write my sermons carefully. And the people
go to sleep and stay asleep!' "I'll tell you,"
replied Mr. Haslam. -'Your pulpit stands at
the head if the aisle facing the entrance door.
You take yonr sermon; you go into the pulpit.
You read it out carefully, and it is like yourself, so straight and so orderly that it.goes
straight down the aisle and out the big door.
My poor sermons, well—they aren't like sermons at all. A sermon of mine is just like a
firecracker. It goes first in one direction and
in another. It fizzes and cracks in this pew
and jumps into that. No man tell when it
may hit him.   So they all stay awake!"

It is important tbat no new fruit

knows wben and wbere a new seeds-

A trial ground ia needed where

rather than later, all chicks inten Jed
for tbe table, and as for breeds such
bb the Leghorn, o.f can not affort to
keep tbem until fall and tben sell
ior the price of roasters.
£|lf a market is not already ar
rauged, it would be well to see
about it at once. Usually the broiler
market should not be too fur away.
The best places to look for customers are as follows (named in order
of highest prices): Private families,
clubs, higb class hotels, summer
hotels, higb clast boarding houses,
dealers, eto.
The best time to sell the broilers
is when they weigh from on: to two
pounds eacb. The earlier in tbe season, tbe smaller tbe weight tbat will
b? taken, and the larger tbe price.
Tbe most satisfactory way to
market  ia to kill aad dress before
shipment (all but dealers require
them dressed), but for longer distances, and in warm weather espen
eially, if sold lo dealers, tbey may
go altve.
Beiore selling Ihe broilers it will
pay to give them special feeding for
t;*n to fiiteen days In experiments
conducted at tbe Dominion experimental farm, Ottawa, it was shown
that a good feed was made up of
equal parts of corn meal, feed flour
and m ddlings. To this was added
15 per cent of tankage (or beef
scrap), and the whole mixed with
buttermilk. One part of the dry
masb to two parts of the milk by
weight is the right proportion. Thi-
mixture proved better than pre
pared commercial mixtures and fed
three times a day to broilers weigh
ing at tbe start lesB than two pounds
eacb, gave in fourteen days an average gain of a little over Uiree-
fourtbs pound at a cost for f ed of
less than 5 cents. At tbe price sold
(50 cents per pound) tbere was a
profit of 29} cents on tbe feeding
The feeding in ordinary fattening
crates gave slightly better returne

heavy breeds gave better returns

from public places a   friend  asked
him bow he managed  to  keep possession   uf   his—u   very handsome
umbrella   with a chased silver handle.
Tbe judge evaded tbe question,
but a week later tbey met again in
tbe cloak room of a court. Tbe
judge called his friend's attention to
umbrella ruck,"which contained
half a dozen umbrellas of all sorts

them was least likely to taken "by

'That's mine," said the judge

from his pocket and screwing it on

Canadians who left Canada hoping to better them-s lives are return*

without exception tbey are reporting

During tbe next six weeks all
growers will be asked to supply
their locals with estimates of their
various crops, and following tbe
histoiy of past years, some of these
will be very accurate some fairly bo
and.many entirely unreliable. Most
of ihem will be banded in before the
specified date, but there will be
enougb laggards tn prevent summing up the tot I prospective crop
nt tbe proper time.
Tlie Associated feels sure that, if
all growers understood bow important it is to tbe sales department to
bave is accurate a knowledge as pos-
sible of tbe volume of each commodity tbey will bave to Bell, much
more careful att-nti'-n wouid be
given to this very   necessary  work.
In preparing for a marketing campaign car ful study must be made of
every condition that will affecr tbe
market demand and tend to raise or
lower tbe maximum price at wbicb
our fruit oan be sold, and no one
thing will have so great a bearing
on this question as the quanity we
have lo sell. Without accurate information the naming of prices and
planning for distrihuti ,n are merely
ghfc-.swork, trusting to luck for good
Overestimating aud underestimating are equally bad—both are liable
to cms- loss and failure to get best
results. An uuexpicled surplus
appearing after thc estimated crop
is sold inevitably brings u slump at
the end of tbe season with ruinous
tff.Uou pool prices. On the other
lju:d,au overestimate cirrus witb
ii ihe Jioger of overselling and
tends to namit-g tco low a price in
order to move a surplus that does
not exist.
Absolute Lccuracy is, of course,
inip.v-ilile, but it is Furpiising how
closely tbe crop can be predictud
when care and systematic i-ffort has
bsen made. Each local has its own
eystem for collecting tbis Informs-
•i<m, s.-nne depending entirely on
Ihe erower, others checking up a
separate survey or by employing a
fl^lrl   man for this purpose.
Monster Tuna Taken in Canadian
A■ a writer of stirring taleB of tho
Border and the mid-westurn
states in tho curly days, Zune Grey
has m-ido un onviabio record for himself, but now along he comes with
another—n fish Btory—and bettor
still, presents the proof in photograph,
so that liis yarn docs not luko on
thn Bomblunco of a druam or a good
bit of story-tolling.
Tuna, wei'diing nearly half a ton,
are the roward of ambitious anglers
who lish in Novu Sootian waters.
particularly in Bt. Ann's Buy, ofl
Cape Broton. Tlirue mammoth tuna
have boon taken from tliiM luinliiy,
each holding tho world's reoord in
turn. Captain Laurio D. Mitchell's
710 pound tuna held a record for n
number of years, till along came
J. K. L. Ross of Montroiil, well known
ai an owner of racing horses, director
of the Canadian Pacific Railway and
his skill as a fisherman. He landed a
tuna after a .'A hours' fight, that
measured 9 ft. and 2 in. in length, nnd
6 ft. in girth, and tipped the scales at
7,12 lbs. thus winning tho honour of
record tuna fishing from Captain
Mitchcl by 2 lbs.
His record Beemed secure, when
along in August, 1924, cumo Zuno
Grey and his brother, II. C. Grey,
eager to catch big tuna. Thoy used a
Nova Soolian-liuilt schooner, n
Haunch little craft admirably adapted
to their plans and needs.   They got
three tuna, weighing respectively*.
C:i8, 684, and then as a climax, the
biggest tuna over landed, weighing
7I>8 pounds. Had they gone in for
anything larger, it would have required a C. P. R. freight car to haul
it to tho cannery at St. Andrews. The
time taken to land the first was 0
hours and 10 minutes, for the second!
38 min. which was caught by R. Ct
Groy, and 3 hours and 10 min. wert
spent to conquer the record breaker
wilh whioh Zano Grey is said to have
wrested tlio palm from .the C.P.R.
director and won tho title of champion
tuna llshorman.
Other big fish of various species
taken in various Canadian waters,
include a record pike caught in Big
Lac Nominlngue in the Laurentians
of Quebec, weighing 68 lbs.: a 38H
lb. muskollunge caught in 1924 in
French River, Ontario, by Samuel
W. Franklin of Now York City; the
world's record speckled trout, weighing WA lbs., taken from Nipigon
River by Dr. J. W. Cook of Fort
William; and a great Northern pike,
4 ft. long with a weight of 21 lbs.
which gave Harold Sweester of New
York a 45 minute fight on the
Canada's infinitude of rivers and
lakes aro filled with a vast wealth of
lish, many of thorn of record measurements and weight. The foregoing are
sportsmen's records.
