and Vancouver.
Announcement is marie by tbe
Experimental Farms' branch of the
department of agriculture, Ottawa,
of tbe introduction this sprin" of a
valuable new variety of field peas
called MacKay This variety ie a
selection from a cross made at Ot*
taw*, many years ago between a
variety known as Mummy ano an
otber known as Black Eye Marrow
MacKay is a very vigorous grow
ing white flowered variety producing a rather dark cream colored pea
with a block bilum (eye).
On .the average for tbe past five
years at tbe Central farm at Ottawa
tbe above variety bas yielded ten
bushels more per acre than tbe well
variety called Arthur. In leDgibof
straw it bas excelled tbe latter variety by thirteen indbes, averaging
only one inob less than tbe famous
forage variet, called Prussian Blue,
wbicb variety has excelled in yield
of grain by over six bushels per
acre. The new iotaoductiou has
been a consistent high yielder at
most of tbe branch farms and stations throughout Canada and iB
recommended for trial wherever peas
are grown throughout the Dominion
except, possibly, where i very early
maturing sort is required.
For growing with such vorieties of
oats   as O.A.C. 72, Banner or Vic
tory   for   the   production of   bay,
MacKay is the variety m w  recom
mended. Tbe rate nf seeding, when
grown for the above purpose, is one
bushel   of   peas  to two bushels of
oats, the crop being cut   when   the
oats bave reached the  early   dough
stage. Tbis mixture, und r  reason
ably favorable  conditions,   may  be
expected to produ3e   a   very   heavy
tonnage,   even   rivalling corn  as a
producer of feed  units per  acre in
some district.
When allowed to mature.MacKay'
wbicb Is a relatively late maturing
variety, will ripen well witb any one
of tbe above varieties of oats, whicb
fact gives tbe variety a peculiar ad
vantuge over varietfes wbicb ma'nre
too early. Thus sbould any circnm
stance arise, sucb as wet weather at
baying time, the mixture may be
allowed to mature altbougb tbe
original intention may have been to
make bay of it. It ie also possible
to allow a sufficient acreage to mn-
tu e in any case, to provide seed for
tbe followiug year.
Wbere grown alone for the pro-
duciioD of grain, three bushels per
acre is tbo rate of seeding recom-
mended in most districts,  owing to
the large size of the pes.
Tbe  secretary of  the   Canadian
8eed Growers'  association, Ottawa,
has made arrangements for supply
ing, in  small quantities, a limited
amount of seed of this new variety,

The Value of Crop
Rotation in Maintaining Soil Fertility
The maintenance of soil  fertility
fs assured for the irrigated districts
of   southern   Alberta   in  so fat as
nitrogen and humus are concerned,
provided that alfalfa bas a prominent
place   in   the rotation,  states  Dr.
Frank T. Shutt, Dominion chemist
in a new bulletin of tbe department
of agriculture.    The bulletin, which
deals with the influenc of continuous
gri in growing on soil fertility, gives
the details of a series of experiments
witb   ten-year crop   rotations con
ducted on irrigated  land  at   Letb
bridge.    Ten   plots were used and
each rotation comprised six succee
sive crops of alfalfa, one   hoed crop
and three grain crops.   Large yields
of alfalfa hay and cereals were bar
vested during   tbe eleven  years of
'be   experiment, yet   tbere   was
very    marked    increase    in     tbe
nitrogen content of tbe soil of every
plot. In one plot even though   2628
pounds of nitrogen  were removed
by tbe crops, tbe residual  gain at
tbe close nf the period   to a depth
of twelve inches was 2235 pounds.
In spite of amounts removed b   the
crops, tbe gain in nitrogen per acre
every year ranged roughly from 70
to 200 pounds on  nine of   the ten

Truth lies at the bottom of tbe

his promise to James
Mayor of New York,
Captain Frank Doudera, "well known
Brooklyn big game hunter and
sportsman, arrived at tlie Canadian
Pacific Windsor Station ln Montreal
recently from Northern Ontario with
.two live wolves which he captured
on Lake Temlskamlng, at the junction where the River KippaW flows
into the lake. The two animals,
named Patsy and Rovon, are Intended
for the Brooklyn Zoo.
When taken out of their cages ln
the baggage  rooni3 at the Windsor
Station, both Patsy and Rover displayed decidedly nervous tendencies.
Patsy is an ash blonde, endowod by
nature with a pearly grey coat of fur,
tinged with red, which glistens a little ln the sun.     Rover seemed to be
i bit worn ln spots, but his fur, what-
* there ls of It, is a bluish black,
■y resembling a blue fox.   F.over
dined to rove.     When token
express- yards he buiir.ii his
■the anow.    After a enow-
eating performance he Insisted on
climbing over the fence via mounds
of snow, but a strong hand at the
leash detained him.
Patsy turned out to be a mild,
good-natured child who accepted the
overtures of her audience with becoming meekness. A pat on the head
from a total stranger solicited a kind
look from the young lady's large grey
eyes 'which peep forth like pretty buttons on old-fashioned shoes.
Rover was not so meek. At the
same pat on the head from the eame
total stranger he snarled bitterly
and would have avenged the indignity
with blood but for the muzzle.
The wolves are only about ten
months old. Rover weighs one hundred pounds and measures about fire
feet from the tip of his snow-washed
nose to the end of his scraggy tall.
Patsy weighs about elghty-flve
pounds and is several inches Bhorter
than Rover. In addition to the two
live wolves-, the captain has seven
Doudera claims a record in shooting the last -wolf after a chase which
lasted only three hours and forty
minutes. Usually it takes several
days to corner a wolf. The animal
takes long, powerful strides and covers-ground at an amazing pace. But
ln the present case there had been a
heavy tall of enow and the wolf had
floundered along until Doudera came
within fifteen feet. The animal then
turned, bared hie fangs, let loose a
series of howls and leaped at his
pursuer. The captain pulled the
trigger of his gun and a bullet pierced the wolf's heart and shoulder.
During the expedition the hunter
was aided by Fred Arnott, who operates the Tern-Kip chain of camps.
Captain Doudera brings with him six
thousand Teet of films showing authentic pictures of wolves In tlieir
native haunts. The sportsman reported that game was very plentiful
in tlie Lake Temiscaming district.
Deer are to be found within a few
hundred yards from camp.

The resurrection of Christ receives an
Alaskan setting in a picture by Jan Van Em-
pel, on the reredos of Saint Peter's Protestant
Episcopal church at Seward, Alaska. The
painting was done at the request of Bishop
Peter T. Bowe, of the Alaska diocese, who
met Van Enapel when the lattpr was touring
the northland in search of inspiration. The
upper portion of the work shows the figure
ofthe risen Lhrisr surrounded by ministering
angels. Views of the mountains and of the
waters of Resurrection bay, on which Seward
is situated, form the horizon. In the lower
foreground on either side of the opened tomb
are gronped representative characters of
Alaska's population. "Alaska is full of inspiration for the painter," declared Van Em pel.
"The country is rough and hard; the characters
ragged. It is nature in a frowning mood."

Americun scientists excavating iu low-r
Palestine have found what they believe to be
the ruins of the great Philistine sanctuary of
Ashtaroth, goddes of love. All we know about
this temple is that on one oeeasi n, after the
tragic battle of Gilboa, where the first Hebrew
king committed suicide and his son was slain,
the armor and swords ol Saul antl Jonathan
were hung here da trophies. We also knuw
that David later captured the fortress thai
guarded the sanctnary, ami this was its end as
a national center ot the Philistine's. Extensive
ruins have now been uncovered, and innuniei
able clay tablets have eeii found. So far the
inscriptions on these tablets bave not been
deciphered, for thay ara in an unknown language. Strange as it may seem, this is not
considered an insuperable difficulty by archaeologists and | hilologists. What will they reveal when finally decoded? S?me light no
doubt will be thrown on that extraordinary

Train 300 Miles Long to Carry Crop
Stationed at the Transcona yards, -Winnipeg,
the Prairie Provinces, thc Canadian Pacific Railway bas 86,000 boxcars standing
ready for the transportation of the 1926-crop.  Of these over 8,000 cars ars at the
Winnipeg yards.   To move this immense aggregation 660 freight and 160 switch engines
will be required.
Were they all to be joined up into one train and If we further suppose that this
train were moving at twenty miles an hour over a level crossing, a motorist who arrived
there just as the first engine reached the crossing, would have to wait fifteen hours until
the caboose passed across. This would indeed be a case where "taking a chance" would
almost be justified.
Each boxcar is from 86 to 40 feet in length or an average of 88 feet. Allowtnga
spara between each of four feet and taking Into consideration also the 660 engines esch
ninety feet long, the total length of this great train would be about 290 miles whi-sh
at twenty miles an hour would take close on fifteen hours to pass a given point.
The carrying capacity of a boxcar is about 1,600 bushels of wheat ana thli would
take care on the first movement of the above imaginary train of 62,600,000 bushels.
Since tbe train in its individual movements will travel several times, an idea of what
roportion of the 1926 crop, estimated at 876,000,000 bushels the Canadian Padfle
ailway will carry, is indicated.
Among the engines used In the hauling of the wheat trains are some of the

There was more than a corresponding Increase in butterfat.
The cow testing association consists of about twenty-six farmers
who co-operate and employ a trained
tester to test their cows for economical production of milk and butterfat.
The tester spends one day a month
on each farm and obtains a complete
record of each cow's milk and butterfat production, feed consumed,
feed cost, growth, and Income, and
Income over feed.
The first cow testing association in
the United States was that organised
at Newaygo County, Michigan, In
