Victoria, April 18.—Another via-
orous blow has been dealt tbe bootlegger in Britiah Columbia by At-
torney General A. M. M'naon.
After persistent efforts he has succeeded in having Ottawa pass regulations preventing whi»ky runners
clearing for deep sea witb liquor
cargoes aboard. Most of tbe rum
running of tbe pant few years has
arisen out of tbe practice of illicit
trafliickers taking oo tbeir cargoes
in Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Vic-
toiia and New Westminster and
olearing for Mexico, while they had
do intention of going farther than
some American city. Now only
fishing vessels will be permitted to
carry liquor aud ouly sufficient fur
medicinal purposes will be allowed.
American prohibition authorities
bave written expressing their appreciation of the step.
While definite official figures are
not yet available, Hon. W. II.
Sutherland, minister of publio
works, states that tbis year's road
program in British Columbia will
menu the expenditure of between
#1.200,000 and 11,500,000. Plans
are being pjepared for the highways
to be c instructed and repaired and
work will commence as soon as
weather conditions permit.

kitchen in search of bis now hand*
"Sandy," he exolaimed, "you

It was reported from the
South country this week,
says the Penticton Herald,
that the contract for excavating the balance of the big irrigation ditch through the settlement lands had been awarded to Donald Keith.
This contract, which includes excavating from Mud
lake six miles south to the
international boundary, will
mean about four months'
for about fifty man.
At the northern end of the
contract, being the southern
of the present ditch, the waterway will be about seven feet
wide, runuiug down to half
that width at the boundary
line. Mud lake, where the
contract starts, is about ten
miles south of Oliver. As is
known, the main ditch starts
four or five miles north of
Oliver, where it has a width
of possibly fifteen or sixteen
The government will itself
do the concreting of tqe ditch

of which Dr. Frank T. Shutt, Dominion chemist, and B. Leslie Eiuslie,
soil fertility specialist, are the authors, and which can be had without
charge on application to the publications branch, department of agriculture, Ottawa. The plan and scope of
the bulletin have been suggested by en
quirles received and inolnde, first, the
results from recent experiments; second, a discussion of the source, na ■
ture, function and value of the various manures, fertililers, and soil
amendments; third, an explanation of
the formulae and factors iniolved in
the valuation of fertilizers and preparations of home mixtures and, fourth,
suggestions for the fdrtilizer treatment of field crops, etc.
Regarding commercial fertilizers,
the Dominion Fertilizers' Act provides for the registration of every fertilizer offered for sale as Buch in Canada. A regittration number is given
and this number serves as a means of
identification, for the act provides
that the guarantee of analyses, together with the registration number
of the fertilizer, shall be stencilled on
each bar or other container or printed
legibly on a tag attached durably
thereto In connection with this provision of the act the bulletin points
out that on She market there are
numerous—far too numerous—brands
of ready mixed fertilizers that contain various percentages and proportions of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and
potash. Many of those are described
by the manufacturers as being spec
ially adapted for the needs of certain
crops. The farmer, however, should
study the composition, not the namo
of the fertilizer. Some fertilizer mixtures aro called by attractive and
often very pretentious names. But a
name, especially if a misnomer, is a
poor basis whereon to bnild the reputation of a fertilizer. To safeguard
farmers against misrepresentation in
naming, the present regulations in
connection with the fertilizer act do
not permit the name of any crop or
group of crops as part of the brand
name; neither do they permit the uso
of any name as part of the brand
which in the pinion of tho minister
of agriculture is considered mislead-
Housewives^ of Province
Not Likely to Preserve
Any Large Amount If
PricesGontinue to Raise
Vancouver, April 18.—
Housewives of British Columbia, according to representative women, are determined that tliey will not preserve any more fruit than is
absolutely necessary this season unless sugar prices drop.
They will, therefore, buy less
fruit, and the growers, who
expect to have an enormous
crop this year, are likhly to
find the local market badly
In homas of Vancouver
working people the prospect
of high sugar prices is a discouraging one, say social
workers who understand the
difficulties with which mothers
have to contend in satisfying
the healthy craving of their
youngsters for preserved fruit
When prices of sugar are
manipulated to a height at
which the great majority of
people must forego tlie simple
luxury of homemade preserves the ' burden is made
heavier for thousands of Van
couver families, they declare.

idgly. She wanted beai for supper,
and she got it. Uow she succeeded
Arthur Heming tells in the World's
Work. His story is notable among
those that tell of the clever ways in
whieh man has outwitted bruin.
The Indian woman and her eight-
yoar old daughter, ho writos, were
gathering moss on the shore of Qreat
Slavo Lake,Canada, when thn mother,
observing o clump of gnarled spruces
not far off, sent hor littlo girl thero
to soo whether sho conld Anil terries.
The child found instead a round hole
that lot! into n cavorn beneath tho
roots of the troes, which stood upon a
little knoll. She oallod to her mother
to come and see it.
On knooling and peering within the
mother discovered a boar. Turning
swiftly round, she sat down in such a
way that her hody completely blocked
the hole and shut out all light. Then
she sent her child on Ihe run for
camp to fetch her father with a gun.
To anyone not versed in woodcraft
tho squaw would seem to bo extraordinarily brave; but bravery did nol enter into the act. Tho woman knew
bears; that is all. She knew that so
long as all light was blocked from the
hole the creature would lie still.
When the father arrived he shot the
bear—and a big fellow he was!

Notes, Notions and Notables
■"'   Sir Clifford .Sifton is an advocate of replacing forests.   That the millions of logs  taken
from  the Canadian forests this spring represent a destruction of "capital" and *that the
government should speud large amounts ou
restoration without computing costs on an interest basis, is his coii-ention.    "In my judgment,"  he says in a letter to the Canadian
Fares try   association,   "the  money  spent in
planning trees should not under any circumstances  be  regarded as an investment upon
which interest, either simple or compound,
should  be calculated.    I  regard the cutting
down of merchantable trees as a destruction
of capital and I would think it was the  plain
duty of the government   which permits the
cutting down   of  such   trees and derives a
revenue therefrom, to insist on the replanting
of at least two trees for every one cut down,
and that such cost should be taken out of the
forest revenue and regarded as a permanent
charge upon that revenue."
it. On the average, at least in late years,banking corporations have not made their stockholders wealthy, and the double liability pertaining to bank stocks has made an investor
timid about holding them. Clearly tbe banks
are uot blameworthy for not unduly risking
the funds entrusted to them, or for requiring
more or less liquid assets as security for loans,
as they are at all times subject t«j heavy demands for the return of the money entrusted
to them. They can not be required to lend
against securities they mistrust, or too largely
against any one kind of security without some
guarantee from the nation that the losses
thereby sustained would be made good to
them. There would be great danger in that.
And, as already said, there would be great
danger both to the national credit and to good
government if a national banking system was
placed in the hands of politicians, who might
use such power in a partisan pr corrupt way,
and in any case without adequate knowledge
and training, That is why, the Actual lending
of the money should be on the security of the
assets, several and combined, and at the dis
cretion of a local mutual club who would put
up a certain percentage, say 25 p.c.,,of each
loan. Lloyd's acts largely on that plan. The
chartered banks, under proper supervision of
parliament might undertake to finance com
munities this way than could a.government
bank.—Montreal Witness.
Good causes are like bicycles; they keep
going only so long as some one keeps pushing.
There is to be an observatory 11,324 feet
up in the Swiss Alps. It will stand on the
Jungfraujoch, close to the famous Jungfrau
railway, and it is expected that it will help
very much in the study of weather conditio ns
at great heignts. The observatory, which will
be the highest in Europe, is to be completed
this year, and a man is going to spend the
•vinter in it among the eternal snows. He
will not be completely isolated, as the obser v-
ittory is to be connected with the Swiss tele -
graphs, but probably never before ia-3 man

Reasonable Objection
Someone suggested that Moose Jaw change
its name to Tutankhamen, and Medicine Hat
to Ur. Naturally Moose Jaw objects because
it hasn't been dead nearly 3300 years And
Medicine Hatters point out that Abraham got
out of Ur at the first opportunity and went to
Canaan in search of excitement.—Ottawa
The Cambridgeshire Forestry Association
■School of Forestry is "inclined to stake its
reputation that this can be done," and "this"
meaning the growing of square trees. The idea
seems to have been originated by Alfred J.
Winslip, who has studied the method practiced by gardeners in slitting the bark of fruit
trees to make wood. Whon the bark is bruis ed
without being removed or even slit, a growth
of a somewhat different kind takes place. But
whatever the method used may be, the wood
is of greatly superior quality to that of the
parent tree. According to the Camluidgo-
shire association,there will be "no more slabs,
no more wavy planks, no moro -.horrid sums
to convert frustra of cones into cubic foot,"
wheu trees are grown square. "If we can control this excessive wood production," thi' report of the Cambridgeshire association con-
oludes, "there is no reason why we can not
make trees grow square to produce wood of
better quality and in greater quantity."
How did the world get started, son?
Why, someone said, "It can't be done!"
That settled it.    The troglodyte
Came out of darkness into light.
"It can't be done!" somebody said,
And lo! the green fields gave us bread.
With that taunt ringing in his ears
Has man gone upward through the years.
You should have seen the mill wheels run
When some one said,- "It can't be done!"
"It can't be doue!" they said before
A sail set out to sea from shore.
Since world's remote and dismal dawn
Those magic words have spurred us on.
It drove Columbus where the sun
Went redly down. "It can't be done!"
"It can't be done!" the weakling said,
And lo! the Wrights Hew overhead.
"It can't be done!" was what they cried
When Fulton offered them a ride.
They said <t, and Marconi sent
His message through the firmament.
That is the way it happened, son,
Praise God for this, "It can't be done!"

Tourists Help Develop Ontario
1. A Tjrpieal Bungalow Camp at Emerald Lake.   2. This from Uu Nipigon.   3. A Viata of the French Biter.
MOST of tbe newer parts of
Canada have received their first
Impetus toward development through
the tourists. In many cases It- has
been the tourists that nave first gone
In to spy out the land. They nave
found it good, and. by the trade
which they brought In, nave encouraged settlers to set up their homes
with the result tbat the district has
been well started on Ita way to
becoming an organized and productive community.
With the idea of inducing traffic,
and by so doing, helping to popularize
and settle those vast, beautiful and
productive lands along the right-of-
way in Central and Western Ontario,
the Canadian Pacific Railway has
decided Ho establish a number of
Bungalow Camps, modeled on those
which have proved so successful ln
the Canadian Pacific Rockies during
the past three yean, and it is expected that In a very short time this
part of the country will be as famed
for its scenic and sporting possibilities
as any other part of the Dominion.
The French River, Nipigon Bay and
Lake of the Woods districts are, and
have been for many years, well and
most favourably known to anglers
and hunters, particularly those from
the United States and the Western
provinces; but owing to lack of
adequate housing facilities the traffic
has been confined chiefly to the more
adventurous spirits who are satisfied
to live in tents. It is in these districts
that the first three of the Bungalow
Camps will be located, and It Ts expected that they will be ready for
occupation by July first.
The Camps will consist of a central

recreation hall, surrounded by small
rustic bungalows suitable for two or

appeals to those who like outdoor life,
and the moderate cost of construction

charge much lower rates than an
elaborate hotel where operating expenses are necessarily high.

During the year 1922 the Canadian Pacific Railway handled a
total of 8,435,825 pieces of baggage
as compared with 8,782,674 for tht
previous year. Of this amount
6,175,203 pieces were passengers'
baggage which compared with 6,-
486,455 for the previous twelve
months. 9,697 bicycles were handled,
19,336 dogs travelled as baggage
and 23,988 baby carriages wera
moved. There was also a considerable
increase in the movement of milk.
In 1922, the Company moved 1,623,-
707 cans as against 1,814,791 la
1921; and it is remarkable that most
of this increase was in the threa
provinces, Manitoba, Saskatchewan
and Alberta, which Is an apparent
indication of the further development of mixed farming in those

How and When
to Destroy Weeds
The best time to destroy weeds is
within two or three days after the
firs* pair of leaveshasformed on the
seedling plant, says the Dominion
seed commissioner in his bulletin
on "Weeds and Weed Seeds." In
friable soils the "weeder" is a useful
implement for that purpjse. The
"tilling" harrow is also satisfactory
for comparatively loose soils and is
preferred as a weed destroyer on
firm or clayey land. Weeds are ir«
regnlar in time of germination; conn
seqnently it is necessary to apply
the weeder or harrow frequently
throughout the growing season. Po*
tatoes. or fields of corn or cereal
grains when sown wit,- 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 tbe
plants are tbree to sis inches high.
Even relatively heavy harrows ordinarily in use will do little damage
to tbe potatoes, com or grain plants
if the land is not wet, while the
loosening of the surface soil benefits
the crop in addition to tbe destrucx
tion of the weeds.
For perennial weeds or seedlings
that have become well rooted, a
cultivator having diamond-shaped
or other relatively broad shares is
needed for hoed crops. The disc is
a favored implement for destroying
weeds in a summer fallow or in pre*
paring seed bed. When, however, it
is desired to unearth and remove
the rootstocks of pereunial weefis,
su-h as couch grass, a narrow-
toothed cultivator that will loosen
the soil and bring the underground
vegetation to the surface, is preferred to an implement that will cut
the rootstocks, tbe small cuttings of
whioh may be exceedingly persistent of growth.
A Story for Golfers
Lord Riddell, one of tbe British
delegates to the Washington conference who made many American
friends wbile in theStates, speaking
at a recent luncheon at the Criccietb
Golf club, told this story:
The greatest hero in golf history
was a Scotsman who in the year
1710 used to start playing at dawn
and end by putting at the last green
by candlelight. Matters reached
sucb a stage that his wife, who was
an innkeeper, applied for a separation order on the ground that her
busband so negleoted his business
tbat he did not properly support
The circumstance enablec the
man to make one of the most pa
thetic declarations in history. "Let
her have the business'" he said,
"provided she gives me sufficient to
clothe and feed myself and provide
myself with golf balls."

The Objects of this Institution, for whicli Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Suientilic Care, Training aud Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of tbe many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presaut time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New York City; they have 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 the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to be located 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.
