The experience of three seasons at
the Swift Current, Sask., Dominion
experimental station indicates that
the combined reaper thresher can
harvest wheat at a much lower cost
per acre than can tbe binder and
grain separator. In bis annual reports for 1922, 1923 and 1924 the
superintendent, J. G. Taggart, re.
cords results of experiments, and iu
bis report for 1925 be deals with the
matter comprehensively. Kol only
does be tell of the experiencs at tbe
station, but states that nine ques-
sionaires returned from operators of
reaper threshers show an estimated
average saving over binding, stook-
ing nd threshing of 15 6 oents per
bushel. In two cases the machine
cut and threshed for tbe cost of
cutting and stocking. In only ooe
case was tbere enougb sawfiy damage to make any difficulty and that
was partly overcome by use of lift
ing guards.
Summarizing tbe results the report for 1925 says: (1) The combine
can be used to harvest wheat in dis-
tricts wbere crops ripen early and
fields are reasonably level, tbat it
has been used successfully aod
economically to narvest flax and
that one operator reports its use on
oat; (2) be wheat orop must be al
I lowed to ripen to sucb a degree tbat
the average moisture content is be
low 15 per ceot before cutting with
tbe co i bine is started; (3) no seri
ous loss from shelling has occurred
during the 10 to 15 day ripening
period; (4) tbe only importanf loss
in any year resulted from the failure
of the combine to pick up wheat
tbat had beeo cut by sawfiy bnd
blown down while tbe crop was
ripening and thia was partly obvis
ated by cutting with the binder;
(5) crops that have been injured by
sawfiy, or that contain bulky weed
sucb as Russian thistle or pigweeds
are not handled satisfactorily witb
the combine; (6) clean crops, either
short or tall, aud heavy tangled
crops have been handlied more
satisfactorily with the combine than
witb tbe binder; (7) dependent upon
yield per acre and other factors tbat
may affect the speed of operation
the saving effected by tbe combine
over the binder and separator is 10
to 15 cents per bushel.

they   live and breed readily in aquaria, and
hence supply good material for scientific study
of fish facts, party because they are interesting

mostly because of their insatiable appetite for

"Baron Byng, in refusing the dissolution of
parliament advised "by Rt. Hon. Mackenzie
King, has challenged eflectively the doctrine
of equality in status of t e dominions with the
Udited Kingdom and has relegated Canada
decisively to the colonial status, which we be
lieved she had outgrown."
This statement is made  by  Professor  Ar
thur  Berriedale  Keith,  noted   scholar  am
author of many   books on  relations  of the
countries within thc empire,  in  an article in
the Manchester Guardian today,
"L'ird Byng's action affects not, only Cana
da," Prof. Keith continne-01 "for Canada is by
constitutional law solemnly asserted in 'tin
Irish treaty to be tbe model for the Irish Fn1'
State. Therefore, the governor general >•
not now legally empowered and constitutionally capable of disregarding the advice o
ministers. Tlie mrtter then is one transcend
iug Canadian policies."
Prof. Keith proceeds to say that if Canadi
has only the sumo right as the  Australian, oi
her own provinces, Lord  Byng's action wn
entirely constitutional, "whether wise or   not,
we need not consider." t
' '-That Occasions may 1 e imagined when the
sovereign would have to disregard the advice
of his ministers may be admitted, but that
sucb occasion would ever arise in this country
(speaking of Great Britain) is most improbable," says Dr. Keith.

This antique looking wheelbarrow and spade do not appear capable of very
hefty service now, but nearly half a century ago they carried the weight
of a very important event — the ceremony marking the commencement oi
the construction of the Canada Central Railway through Pembroke, Ontario.
Following the ceremony, the spade with which the first sod was turned and
the wheel-barrow into which it was shovelled in the presence of a very
enthusiastic crowd, were presented to Miss M. P. Moffat, daughter of the
Reeve of the village, the lady who performed the ceremony ofthe naming
of the roa*8 and christening it with a bottle of champagne. They recently
passed into the hands of the Canadian Pacific Railway, which company
took over the Canada Central lines in 1881, and will be added to a museum
of relics connected with the early days of the railroad which is being forme-'
in Montreal.
So much for the actual ceremony. The Pembroke "Observer" for
September 3rd 1875 says: "The assembly then adjourned to a spacious booth
that had been specially erected for the occasion, where champagne and beei
had been provided for the purpose of drinking several toasts which had been
previously agreed upon, by the committee; but a number of'individuals,
apparently more intent on drinking champagne than doing honor to anj
toasts, took possession of the tables, and the regular order of the programme
had to be abandoned. The Pembroke Brass Band was present ana perf o
iome-popular sirs." 	
Beer Analyzed
By Experts
ALL the Beers purchased by the Liqnor
Control Board of B. C. from the Vancouver Breweries Limited, Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Limited, Westminster
Brewing Co. Limited, Victoria Phoenix
Brewing Co. Limited and the Silver Spring
Brewery Limited, who arc all members of
the Amalgamated Breweries of B. C, for
sale at Government Liquor Stores and the
Licensed Beer Parlors, have been and will
be analyzed from time to time by different expert firms of the continent for the
protection of the public.
• I "-HE substance of these various anal-
•*■ yses instigated by order of the
Liquor Control Board shows that tho
Beers are perfect, the taste agreeable and
malty. The foam is creamy and stands
up well. The alcohol by weight is about
4.25 per cent, and the extract 5.49 per
cent, with an original gravity of about
13.20. These analyses indicate further
that the Beers are of good quality, wholesome and free from any foreign substance.

The Wool Industry in South Africa
/ eller from E. S. Barllcll, Bocmfonle
The Union of South Africa is
rightly classed among the great wool
producing countries of the world.
Climatic conditions there are admirably adapted to breeding and raising of the Merino type of sheep
with a strong, staple wool.
A large part of this country is
suitable only for the raising of sheep,
r.nd the government is making progressive and intelligent efforts to
improve both the sheep and the manner of preparing the wool for market.
Jackals being a strong menace in
South Africa, long-time government
loans arc extended to sheep owners
for the erection of jackal-proof fencing. Government sheep experts are
maintained permanently in allotted
districts so that their services and
advice may be assured at a nominal
Thc mutton sheep of South Africa
is the fat-tailed, black-headed Cape
—n non-wooled sheep. As no crossbreeding for mutton lambs is done,
the wools arc purely Merino in character.
Progress in this South African in-
•lustr** is particularly noticeable in
t he* harvesting. Despite the fact that
ICafflr labor can be secured at the
equivalent of $3.50 per month, there
Is a trend towards the modern shearing machine as against thc age-old
hand blades, which, even on this
continent, have not been discarded
by many otherwise entirely progres-
rlve wool raisers.
A study of this fact, however,
readily reveals the reason for it.
V'hile there is a first cost for the
machine, the unskilled black adapts
himself to its use much more readily
i***.n to the hand blades, and soon
dues a remarkably smooth job of
-h-nring with the machine.
Once si!- :)ted to the use of the

fewer maimed sheen, and not least
important, the additional 5% to 12%
more wool obtained with the machine over and above the amount of
wool secured with the hand blades.
As a consequence, the machine resolves itself into a small investment
with certain, and bin- returns.
Steadily, the science of wool-marketing in South Afi'ica is fast ap-
proaching the scientific efficiency of
the- Australian marketing plan,
which is, without iloubt, the most
practical and efficient in existence
to-day. •
Considering that the four provinces, Natal, Transvaal, Orange Free
State and Cape Province, which
comprise the Union of South Africa,
have over a million square miles
less of territory than the populated
Provinces of Canada, it is surprising
to note that they contain over ten
times as many sheep as the whole
of Canada. The Union of South
Africa ranks about fourth among
thc countries of the world in sheep
population. These points alone put
that country in line as a strong contender for future leadership in the
wool industry.
It is interesting to note, however,
that the great bulk of their pro-
gressiveness is due to quickness in
observing the advantages of modern implements and machinery and
up-to-date methods and discarding
the old ideas that are not nearly io
In view of thc wonderful progress
the wool industry has made in South
Africa in a comparatively short
time, that industry is surely destined
to take a large and important place
in the economic progress of the fat
distant Union of -South Africa.
Sixty men from the training camps
in Brandon and Claydon, England,
have been accepted by the Canadian
Government and sailed on the "Empress of France" at the end of Juno.
They proceeded to Winnipeg after
landing at Quebec and will be pl-u.e-1
on specially selected farms.
Saskatchewan exported last year
77.4 per cent, of its total production
of creamery butter, according to a
statement made by the Provincial
Dairy Commissioner. The increase
ln production in 1925 over that of
1920 had amounted to 126.8 per
cent., the output last year totalling
15,946,233 pounds.
Close on one hundred pilgrims
from St. Paul and Minneapolis
passed through Montreal recently on
their way to the famous shrine of
Ste. Anne de Beaupre, near Quebec
They were the advance guard of the
great army of pilgrims that visit the
shrine every year. While stopping
off in Montreal they visited the St.
Joseph Oratory in that city, also
well-known as a shrine.
Hundreds of students and co-eds
from Canadian and American universities have been passing through
Montreal recently to board ships for
Europe in connection with the Overseas Collegiate Tours that have
grown increasingly popular of late
years. Many of these collegians
travel by Canadian Pacific boats, the
"Empress of France" on a recent
trip carrying over 260 of them.

The electrification of the main
line of the Imperial Japanese Government Railway system from Tokio
to Shimonoseki, 750 miles, has been
long projected, and recently the 45-
mile section between Tokio ahd
Odawara has had experimental
trains drawn by electric locomotives
run twice a day between these points.
Owing to the great expense involved
it is feared it will be many years before the entire main line can be electrified.
Founded 92 years ago in gardens
on the site of which the Canadian
Pacific Railway Windsor Street Station in Montreal now stands, the St.
Jean Baptiste Society of that city
celebrated that event on June 24th
last by havinff a memorial tablet
affixed to the walls of the station.
The tablet was the gift of Victor
Morin, former president-general of
the society, who was present and unveiled it.
Negotiations have been completed
for the erection, and work will
shortly commence, upon a terminal
warehouse and cold storage plant, to
cost about five million dollars and
to be built in Montreal. It is stated
that it will be constructed within ten
months from the end of June, will
be ten storeys in height and will
have a total space of 600,000 square
feet, of which one-third will be for
cold storage. The plant will be built
by the Montreal Rail and Harbor
Terminals, Limited, and cost will lie
financed by Municipal Bankers' Cor*
