Will the Beer Parlors Be
Victoria, August 25.—Although
it voted "net" lust wetk by it narit
row m jirity, the riding of Grind
Forks-Greenwood will get an extremely attenuated dose nf beer-by--
the-glass, officials of tbe liquor control board indicated.
The only two Urge centers of
population in tbe riding, Grand
Forks and Greenwood, voted "dry"
and will not be allowed beer privileges. This leaves few places wbere
licenses for beer parlors can be
granted. Liquor officials are gome
wbat puzzled, in fact, to know just
where tbese establishments can be
It is tbe policy of the liquor board
to grant no licenses in these points
in wet ridings, which voted dry, and
tbis polioy will apply to tbe Boundary riding. Tbe oity of Cranbrook,
wbile in « wet territory not far
away, ba* not been granted b"er
licenses for thiB reason. Another
policy of tbe liquor board which
will operate against beer drinkers
in Grand Forks-Greenwood ie that
wbich bars the establishment of beer
parlors along the international
boundary. This rule has kept beer
by the glass out of all towns within
a few miles of the boundary, regurd-
lesB of the legal liquor condition cf
the riding suirouodiog them It
may prevent tbe establishment of
beer facilities in tbe old town of
Midway on the boundary line, although it voted "for beer. The
liquor board's attitude on thiB aspect
of tbe iiquor traffic is that boundary
towns should not be made into
drinking resorts for United gStatee
residents a short distance aw«y.
Grand Foiks-Greenwood will be
declared legally wet shortly, bnt
that it will be wet in actual praotice
ie doubtful. Only a few places in
it need hope for beer licenses. Tbe
election writs will be returned here
on September 7, wben the government will issue the necessary proclaw
niation declaring the area a place
where licenses may be granted.

Vernon, August 25.—Municipal
iffaira in Britieh Columbia are in
excellent condition, Robert Baird,
inspector of municipalities, told dele
gates to the "twenty-third annual
convention of the Union of British
Columbia Municipalities. His address was received with enthusiasm.
Aid. Woodside of Vancouver, in
proposing a vote of thanks, dedal ed
tbat it was tbe first optimistic address he ever heard Mr. Baird give
before a union meeting.
Tbere had been times iu tbe past,
said Mr. Baird, wben he had doubts,
ed. whether some municipalities
wou d be r ble to meet tbeir financial obligations. Somehow, however,
tbese municipalities had found a
way out of their difficulties, and
were today io much better condition.
It was just ten years ago when
the convention had met at Vernon
that he had much criticism to offer
about tbe administration of mu-
nicial affairs. Today, said Mr.
Barid, be bad no such criticism. He
paid tribute to the work of the Municipal.Officers' association, whicb
he said was doing good work, particularly in improving municipal
statements,so that today tbese statements were intelligible to tbe gen
eral publio.
In addition to an improvement
in municipal sffairs, said Mr. Baird,

Charles W. Eliot, LL D., famous
president of Harvard, and Valentino
the dancer died on the same tbia
week. Dr. Dliot was 92 years of
age, and his fame encircled to globe;
Valentino was 31, bad been divorced twice and was making prepr-
arattons for bis tbird marriage,
Valentino's death waa heralded to
the world in wood type headlines on
the front page of the city papers;
tbe announcement of Dr. Eliot's
passing was crowded to tbe ioeide
pages among lhe advertisements. A
Vancouver daily deplores thie ua
equal distribution of fame. In tbe
caBe of Valentino, it ia possible tbat
tbe Vancouver paper mistakes pub
lioity and notoriety for fame. It is
not an unusual thihg for a murderer
oo a criminal to get more publicity
tban Ihe ruler of a great country.
But publicity isn't fame. Valentino
did nothing to improve tbe world;
in fact, if one bad tbe time to argue
this point to its final analysis, it
might be proved that the world
would be better ofi lf he had not
beeu born. Dr. Eliot's fame will
last as long as English ianguage ie
written or spoken; Valentino's publicity will never carry his bust into
the h 11 of fame.

local manufacturers apply for a tariff

In t: e last election Premier King promised
the people reduced taxation. The Robb budget, which is conceded to be the hest budg t
since confederation, fulfilled that promise.
In this election Mr. King is promising the
Canadian people still further reductions in
taxation if he is returned to power. There is
every reason to believe that this promise will
also be kept. Mr. Maighen has nothing bettor
to offer the country than a chimerical program
of tariff tinkeriug in such a manner as to increase the living costs of the entire population
of the Dominion.
.-. The latest dispatches from Victoria are reassuring to the "drys" of the Grand Forks-
Greenwood i riding. Some apprehension was
at first felt that the beer parlors would be
forced upon the big centers of population by
the "wet" rural vote. The liquor control
board, however, seems to take a difforent view
of the situation, and its policy, as outlined in
a dispatch from the capital of the 25th, is per
fectly. fair and would be in accord with the
wishes of the people of the entire district.
a . It seems hard for Mr. Meighen to keep bis
-bonds off the Canadian National railways in
this campaign. At the end Mr. Meighen's
last administration the Canadian National
railways were the laughing stock of
the entire continedt. When Mr. King assumed power he took the roads out of politios,
placed them under competent management,
aod they are now earning their own way and
wiil soon earn a revenue for tee country if let
alone. Every Canadian citizen now takes
pride in being part owner of these railways.

Speaking at Orillia the other day, Mr.
Meighen said:.
"Tariff revision on farm products will be
in the very first tariff revisin we make. We
will make only one revision, and in that re
vision we will place the tariff on farm  products entering (Janada to just as high a
level as the American tariff."
But there is a joker in the pack. On agood
many farm products the United States tariff
is lower than that of Canada.   Mr.  Meighen
apparently likes the "brick for brick  argument" when talkiug in Ontario—that is, he
promises a tariff wall of tha same dimensions
as the United Stajes "brick for brick."
If such a policy were followed the duties ou
some United States products entering Gana d
would be lowered. In this connection the following statistics are illuminating:

It may be added tbat oo publisher

a merchant to give up a big sum of money
simply because he demands it. In the first
place, all the money possible should be banked
late in the afternoon. If the'bank closes at
three o'clock everything should be cleaned up
and banked by that time. If the bank keeps
open to a later hour, so much the better, for
merchants should see that their cash registers
or money drawers do not get too full. Along
about the time the crowd begins thinning out,
and before straggers start coming in, the bulk
of the money, tbe big bills, most of the fives
and all those of larger denominations, are
taken, from the piace where the money is kept
and c ange is made. This money should be
hidden away without even the clerks knowing
where it is pnt. One suggestion made by a

A Little Man With a Very Long Beard
How can thy ehin that burden bear?
Is it all gravity to shock I

And be thyself a laughing stock?
When I behold thy little feet
After thy beard ob'equious run,
I always fancy that I meet
Some father followed by his son,
A man like thee scarce e'er appear'd —
A beard like thine—where shall we find it?
Surely tliou oherishest thy beard
In hope to hide thyself behind it.

Selection of Dairy Cattle Breeds
Influenced by Shows
A good typical Ayrthire tire
Many a man who Is undecided as
to the breed of dairy cattle that ho
will select haa been Influenced In
making his decision by the animals
of a particular breed that ho has
seen in public.
The Individual breeder secures a
great deal of advertising as the result of exhibiting at fairs, or in. offering good animals at public sales.
It gives people a chance to see and
know the kind of stock that a man is
breeding and paves the way'for future business.
' It is essential that special care and
attention be given dairy animals far
In advance of the time that they are
to be exhibited or sold. Exhibiting
or selling animals publicly in their
every day clothes ls poor advertising
and puts them at a disadvantage
when the competition ls keen. It
takes' several weeks to put a dairy
animal ln good, show condition and
what applies to fitting for show applies as well to fitting for sale.
It Is Important that the dairy animal to be exhibited or sold be in
good flesh. A good covering of flesh
adds to size, increases smoothness
and Indicates that the animal is
thrifty and tn good health. Dairy
animals being fitted need extra feed.
Stabling and blanketing are great
aids in putting the hair and hide Iri
condition. (Hy stabling In summer,
the animal is protected from the hot
sun which makes the hide harsh and
stiff to the touch. A roomy box stall
that ls kept clean and well bedded
Petting on Hs finishing louche,
provides desirable quarters. Continuous blanketing helps keep the animal clean, sweats tho hide, thus Improving its handling qualities and
makes the hair lay to the body. The
blanket need not be expensive but
lt must be tied on securely.
-Every dairy animal that is to be
exhibited should have the hair
clipped from the entire body about
three weeks previous to the date of
the show or sale. This will get rid
of the old hair and allow a new,
even growth to develop which will
greatly Improve the appearance and
increase the selling value of the
A point often overlooked ln the
preparation of a dairy animal for
show or sale is that of training to
lead and stand properly. An untrained animal cannot display its
good points to advantage if lt combats the eit'orts of the attendant to
exhibit it properly. A little time
spent each day in training to handle
properly will save effort and embarrassment at the show or sale and
Increase the financial return.
While in the show or sale ring, tha
man ln charge of an animal should
have one main thought ln mind,
namely that of showing the animal
to advantage. By this ls meant that
when it stands, its feet are properly
placed, back straight and head alert.
Any movement on the part of the attendant or animal should be as
graceful as possible. Until the ribbons are placed or the auctioneer*!
hammer falls, take no chances.
Putting Farm Work Horses in Condition
©Un-sjnswdiDBitewiwl ..,„,.     .
. Harvesting small grain in Ihe great Norlhwell.
Progress ln farm Held work in the
ooming months depends largely on the
condition of the work horses. Soft
from the winter's rest, farm work
horsos require conditioning just aa an
athlete requires training for his test
Every farmer knows that two or
three weeks spent in a gradual toughening and conditioning of a horse for
the heavy work ls moro than made up
b»fore the season of heavy field work
ls over. Not only does this conditioning Include breaking them in to the
long hours of hard pyll that they
must undergo, but applies as well to
breaking them ln to a working ration.
It Is poor practice to allow a horse
to pasture on much new lushy gross
if he is to go on a strenuous work
schedule. A little grass Is good for
him, helps to condition him, but he
must have oats, bran or old corn, or
■till better, a combination of the three
and good sound hoy. Theso are tlio
best possible rations ln tho spring and
early summer. The horso that Is fed
a major ration of grass soon gets soft,
sweats profusely, lags and quickly
plays out. Oats, bran, corn and hay
Will give him stamina and leave him
in the best condition at the end of
the day.
By treating old Dobbin fairly, getting him ready for spring work with
daily exercise, keeping him thoroughly
groomed, especially while shedding,
and a work ration Instead of his
winter feed will pay big dividends ln
a short time.
If the horse takes a long time to
shed his coat, this can bo facilitated
by thorough, frequent grooming and
if this does not do the work, a clipping
all over will get him through the shedding period quickly. After the horse
has started to work In the Held, It Is
advisable to bathe tho shoulders and
nock two or three times daily with
cold, soft, salty water or with white
oak bark tea which toughens and
cleanses tho chafed parts.
A prominent veterinarian states
tliat »-ccessivo sweating ls remedied
by clipping the horse. Excessive
swcatlna* weakens tho animal and it is
doubtless quito advisable to clip him
to relieve this condition, It is also
true that this practice enables the
horso to bo thoroughly groomed In
much loss time than when It retain*
its long winter coat of shaggy hair.
Spilt Milk Costs Uncle Sam
$77,399,685.00 Annually
I It take, a herd of Of*?,-
097 cows each giving
6000 lit. of milk yearly
to mpply the milk
muled annually tn the
U. 8.
According to a schedule showing
the division of dairy products, pub
lished by the United States Department of Agriculture, the annual Cost
of wasted milk in our nation would
make a happy pay day for the army
and navy and still leave an appropriation sufficient to build enough
combat planes to saUsfy even the
militant Mitchell.
The amount ot milk split, soured,
rejected and otherwise wasted annually, ls 3,389,986,000 pounds. ThiB at
$2.25 per hundred would approximate annually the stupendous
amount of $77,899,685.
However, a cheerful note rings
through this tale of economic loss to
a nation. The same report shows
a 1924 increase of 108 pounds of
milk per cow over 1923 production.
Deducting this from the figure previously given, leaves a loss through
waste of only $13,607,325, a mere
bagatelle, compared with our national debt of more than twenty billions of dollars,
The increased yield per cow is due
to heightened efficiency on the farm;
and future years promise even
greater increases.
Dairymen have discovered the futility of feeding non-paying members
of their milk herds. They have
learned that losses lurk in insanitary
milk production. They havo discovered the advantages that lie in
swatting the bacteria that hide in
unclean stables, undipped, un-
brushed flanks and udders of milk
cows and unsterillzed utensils. As
time goes on, the unavoidable waste
of milk will be more than offset by
intelligent feeding, complete sanitation and more efficient herd management. *
Why Home-brewed
Beer Can Be Bad
For Your Health
BREWING beer at home, a habit that has
become widespread in the United
States since prohibition deprived the people
of the right to purchase pure and healthful
beer legally and openly, presents difficulties and dangers of which those who
engage in it are rarely aware.
HOME-BREWED beer can be actually dangerous to those who drink it, for the home
brewer works by rule of thumb, perforce, and
usually has no acquaintance with or control over
the complex physical and chemical reactions that
take place in the brewing of beer. Pure beer can
only be made in a modern brewery by scientifically trained brewmasters who have at their disposal the most modern equipment and who are
bound by the most exacting standards.
THE same materials which, in a modern brewery, are
made into pure, healthful beer, can become, in the
hands of a home brewer, a raw, incompletely fermented, indigestible and harmful mixture unfit for consumption.   But where an established brewery uses only
the highest grade of material—malt and hops—tested for
fiurity, the home brewer i.s forced to purchase in stores
mported syrup concoctions of inferior malt and low-grade
hop extracts frequently blended with synthetic essences.
Tlie product of such mixtures is always harmful to the
stomach and digestive system and dangerous to drink for
any length of time.
THE home brewer is hampered not only by lack of
knowledge of the science of brewing, but home
equipment docs not include the elaborate plant necessary for prolonged sterilization and filtering to assure
a pure, healthful Deer free from bacterial infection. In
beer that is the product of a perfectly equipped brewery
all fermentation is complete; in home-brewed beer fermentation continues, and continues after it is consumed.
Ii Is really an explosive mixture, whether in your stomach
or in the bottle, as shown by the way in whieh bottles
explode and tops are blown off.

Trail Riders Finish Romantic Journey
1.  Trull Rider* lUltift down to the Ptarml 'an
Vull.y.   1.   -Kull Killers" with tho party.
Acnvulcarle of 260 horsemen, the
Trail Riders of the Canadian
Rockies, wlitme Ion-- rides and exploits over thc twisted trails of "The
Top of the World" have become
classic, returned recently to Lake
Louise from their annual ride, thus
adding another romantic pace to the
history of this organization in the
Their return was strangely silent
and different in fact than one might,
without thinking, expect. No undue
ceremonies or song terminated the
mountain journey of these men and
women from all parts of America and
Europe, for being true nature lovers
they had, in their communion with
the silences of the mountains found
the solace therein. The spirit of their
order, was, they knew, "a reverence
for the majesty and beauty of nature".
Their homage had been paid and
their journey ended. They would
revel in the memory of it silently, ior
they had learned, as someone has
put it, that "great joys like great
griefs are silent."
But the spirits uf the Riders on
the trail at all times ran high. While
camped on the flat heights of Pt.
Margin Pass a rodeo was held with
no end of local western color.
Harry Knight, Canadian bucking
horse champion, (iuy Weadick of
Calgary Stampede fame, Bill Bugby,
Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance, and
many other well known figures in the
weat accomplished the Trail Riders.
This  rodeo   was  carried  on  at   an
dtitude of 8,000 feet and brought
about an important discovery
-amongst the scientists of the party.
It was found that a horse that bucked
four feet into the air at the Calgary
Stampede was only capable of a two-
foot leap at this high altitude. Guy
Weadick was in charge of this novel
stampede above the clouds.      «.
The great Pow-Wow which took
place in the Ptarmigan Valley on
August 14th, combined the Riders of
two parties which had set out from
Banff and Lake Louise with plans
to meet at this point. The two
parties met on the second day near
Baker La],,;. A picturesque scene
tbey made with their bright scarves
fluttering as the long line of horses
cantered down the trails. Perhaps
most picturesque of all the group
of Philadelphia school girls in their
breeches and cowboy hats, all expert
riders and splendidly mounted. Each
was eager to earn the gold button of
the Trail Riders given to those who
have ridden 500 miles in the saddle.
Artists, writers, scientists, explorers
and others of international reputation
made up the parties. In the ranks of
these loyal devotees of the trail were
men with such distinguished titles
as Duke de Leuchtenberg, Count of
Beauharnois, and the Marquise D'Al-
bizzi. Other prominent members who
recently completed the ride at Lake
Louise were, Morley Roberts, John
Murray Gibbon, Lawrence J. Burpee
and Madge MacBeth all well known-
writers, and Carl Rungius, Leonard
Richmond, R.B.A., A. C. Leighton
and other prominent artists.
The directors have decided that
next year's ride should be a six day
one through the Assiniboine country
covering over 100 miles. On the third
day this party will be joined by a
three-day contingent through ftp
Earth Creek and Mt. Ball.
