In Canada the soybean is used
chiefly as a forage crop, for seed, or
for pastring to hogs and sheep. Sometimes the crop is used also for soiling purposes and as a greeu manure,
but IU high value intakes its use for
the latter purpose impracticable. Soybean hay compares favorably with
alfalfa hay ln feeding valua It ls
high ln digestible protein and therefore can be used to replace costly
feeds to some extent. Being an annual legume the soybean is an excellent crop to substitute in the event of
clover or alfalfa failure. The hay
may be fed to all classes of live
stock, '
The use of soybeans alone for si
lage is not recommended. Tthe common practice is to use a combination
of soybeans and corn, one part ol
soybeans to three parts of corn. The
two crops may be grown together or
grown separately and mixed when
the silo being filled.
Growing soybeans for seed is being carried on to some extent in
Canada, chefly ln southwestern Ontario. The seed is much hig-her in
oil and protein than other legume
crops such as peas and beans, anl
has therfore a higher feeding value.
Too high a percentage of the beans
in the hog-fattening ration will produce a soft fat which is discriminated against on the market. In the
United States the' oil is extracted
from the soybean seed on a commercial scale and the resulting cake is
used as a concentrated feed, similar
to oilcake for live stock.
Soybeans make excellent pasture
for all classes of live stock, especially sheep and hogs. The pasture is
valuable wben used alone, but - it is
best when used as a supplement to
Penticton, December 15...!.After the
new year is ushered Into the world,
there will be much stirring in the
ranks of the fruit -srowers' organizations, of all shades of opinion. Some
of the most important developments
in the whole history of the industry
are foreshadowed for the next few
n tenths and It would appear that the
growers as a 'body are now fully alive
to tbe needs of the situation.
With this realization also has come
the impression that this is a splendid time to consider fully the de
niand s of cooperation and to look
over the markets served by the Okan
agn valley- and deliberate upon methods of improving them, not only to
the advantage of the markets but to
Improve tbe position of the growers
A survey of -the situation, presented with full conviction, of the
outstanding needs of the valley, and
made fairly and 'impartially, leads Inevitably to the conclusion that steps
must be taken to save the industry
Irom, the disastrous experiences oi
the past, and these steps must be
taken by the ui-owers themselves.
There does not seem, viewing the
matter' entirely from the point of
view of the best interests of the Okanagan valley, to be any substitute for
harmony and concerted action within the valley. No outside influence
do for tbe growers what they can
do ifor themselves; no friends, however well wishing, can guide them as
well as they can guide themselves.
The valley growers have undoubtedly come to a position where they
must act and act with a full sense of
the responsibility they bear for the
welfare of an industry that is one of
ihe largest in tbe country and upon
which are dependent not only the
fortunes of the grower abut those of
every business 'man and business institution interested in the thousands
who own lauds ln tbat district.
In- this series of articles an honest
attem-ipe has been mfade to carefully
look into the position of the growers
and the various organizations wnich
serve them and to point out where
improvements are needed and where
the interests of the growers Beem
best to have been served.
lt is a task upon wuicii many
months might be spent and whicb requires the most thorough study of
growing and marketing to hand
down a decision in accordance with
the facts. - The final result of the sur
vey at this stage is to assure growers that their salvation will come
irom internal harmoney and agreement, the growling of the best grades
of fruits for the markets served, the
establishment of irrigation on a scale
commensurate with their efforts, and
the most intelligent service procurable for shipping and Bales efforts.
On each of those piints, of course,
columns might be written; their ramifications extend to all parts of Canada and indeed to the -narketing centers of most of the wsrld.
Growers are primarily, interested
in the welfare of the valley and the
fruit Industry as a whole. A grower
has his hands full, raising the right
sort of fruit in tbe rlgtot manner with
out having any worries about market
ing. With a sales and shipping service that will honestly and carefully
serve his interests he is well advised
to direct his own efforts to the bringing forward of his orchard ln the
best possible manner.
There are sullieient orchard problems to fully' engage hts attention
without battling with tlie entangle
ments ot widespread marketing.
.Many facts have stood out ln this review of the situation, undertaken by
the writer ln a spirit of helpfulness
and with an outlook entirely friendly
to the valley and to the industry.
Unquestionably, there is no place
in Canada where a finer spirit of
hospitality and good fellowship for
the outsider exists than in the
Okanagan—there are no more charming circles of friendship into which
the visitor could be precipitated. But
to leave the valley With the impression that everything is working
smoothly and that not difficulties exist would mean the possession either
of a mjlnd incapable of grasping the
situation or a conscience that will
permit of a deliberate false report
An honest effort to analyze the
situation discloses many grounds for
uneasiness, particularly with the Associated Growers' contracts coming
to an end with the season ot 1927.
One year to run, aand then the new
situation ralust be faced and dealt
with. Ipto this enter many eompll
cations. The growers, taught by the
experience of 1922, gave a large
measure of support to the plans of
experts who undertook their organization under the name of the   Asso-
GroWers who saw their neighbors
gaining temporary advantage from
trading with small Independents (in
many cases regardless of contracts
With the Associated) became dissatisfied and bave voiced their intention of swim-mtjig with this tide.
The practice of "bootlegging" fruit
—which practice is undeniable—
opened up a new avenue of revenue;
different factions with divergent
views regarding the methods off selling fruit arose throughout the valley
and the result is today that the Associated management is taking tbe
view that the work of past may crum
ble before the encroachments of
these  new  ideas.
It is a curious fact that the trial
given those separate marketing
plans, and resulting in marketing
chaos in the past, does not seem to
bave taught m|any of the growers
wihal may.be expected from such experiments.
In different parts of the United
States fruit growers have been
taught sharp lessons from disorganized shipping and sending "on consignment" their products to markets
kets which are already broken down
by exactly similar acts on the part
of their neighbors. California orchardists, for exam-pie, had exactly tbls
experience during this year. They
found tbat they fought themselves to
a finish and furnished the means for
their own undoing by supplying Gra-
venstein apples on consignment so
that the market was beaten down and
their industry ruined for a season
They are now working out plans to
prevent a recurrence of the disastrous results whicb they found this
season. And others have had this
period of trial—the Okanagan lu
1922 being a sterling instance.
All of these facts point to the absolute necessity lor serious thought
on the part of the Okanagan grower
before he takes action on his contract for next year.

The probability of a spring by-
election in North Okanagan to fill
the Beat left vacant by the death of
the late. Arthur Cochrane, is a question which will be settled bp the provincial government before the coming session of the legislature iB over.
An amendment to the elections act
provides that where a seat vacant a
by-election shall be held within six
months; so that not more than one
session shall pass with the constituency   unrepreesnted.
Dr. K. C. MacDonald, former Liberal member for North Okanagan,
taken into the Oliver cabinet as provincial secretary after the 1924 general election, was defeated by Mr.
Cochrane in the ensuing by-election.
Dr. Ma, Donald Is expected to be the
Liberal candidate when the contest
is staged.
A. T. Howe, (iofeated Conservative
candidate in 1924, it* expected to enter the field again, although the
name of Wi F. Kennedy ls also mentioned as a Tory choice.
The heath of Mr. Cochrane leaves
tbe membership of the legislature
at 47 and reduces the strength of the
Conservative opposition froml 17 to
16. There are 24 Liberals, including
Paul 'Harrison, Independent-Liberal,
of Comlox; three Provincial party
members and four Independent-Labor. With the government party
providing the speaker, Its strength
therefore will be 23 against 23 of all
others. In the event of all non-Liberal members voting against the Oliver administatlon the count would
be 23 to 23, and Mr. Speaker Buck-
ham's vote would Bave the situation.

One of the largest farm sales in
several months to a single immi-

in the purchase of a 720-acrc tract

According io Dr. A. T. Connell, the
farm is well equipped with stock and
"The development that Is now proceeding In British Columbia is one of
tbe leading topics of conversation
among eastern manufacturers and
"British Columbia has gone ahead
of all other parts o the Dominion in
its advance this year."
The. two quotations above are extracts from a statement made the
other day by W. R. Campbell, vice-
president and general manager of
ihe Ford Motor Company of Canada
Limited,who was a visitor in British
Columbia recently.
When the east pays such a compliment to the west It can be regarded far from an empty one. It indicates at least tbat a close watch has
been kept on British Columbia's affairs and that the result of the' continental scrutiny is reflected in Mr.
Campbell's  observations.
It will be recalled that the last
budget speech of Hon. J. D. Mc-i,ean
was made the subject of batterin
comment in the eastern press and in
financial world generally. Among
much other illuminating evidence, of
progress the minister of finance was
able to prove the soundness of the
judgment of the government ln earli
er sales c its securities. One particular case in point was an issue of
|1,000,000 6 per cent three-year bonds
of 1920.
At the time this bond was floated,
and during the provincial elections
in 1920 the government was roundly
criticized by opposition speakers aud
writers for having sold short-term
bonds with the option of New York
payment instead of selling long-term
bonds with Canadian payment only.
It was told that the exchange situation could not possibly change in
three years and that there was a certainty that the loan would ultimately
cost the province anywhere from 9 Mi
per cent to i9Vi per oent.
Nothing of the sort happened. Tho
The New York, market was closely
watched when' the bonds matured
last fall. Funds for their redemption
were purchased at varying rates of
exchange averaging over all one and
nine-sixteenths per cent. In other
words , the actual coat of this C per
cent loan was 5.473 per cent, not only
less than the rate of interest it carried, but very far short o what the
government's critics said it was going to cost.
Having paid off this three-year
loan, moreover, it was possible to refund it at 5.30 per cent. Continuing
it for twenty years on that basis, the
result will be a saving of $475,000 on
this one transaction, a saving which
would not have been effected if the
government had followed the advice
of its pessimistic critics.
These and other similar instances
of sound business methods explain
why "the development that is now
proceeding in British Solumbia is
one of the leading topics of conversation among eastern manufacturers
and distributors." Sound financing,
after all, iB the beet form o provincial advertisement.
The cost of production and profits
from the yield of farm; crops naturally differ In sections of the country,
but facts derived from investigation
and tests carried on at the central
experimental farm, Ottawa, and recorded in the report of 1925 of the
Dominion Field Husbandman, E. S.
Hopkins are of more than ordinary
interest and of special value. Last
year the yield of oats on farm was a
record one, being 86.8 bushels per
acre and of straw 2.23 tons. Placing
the value of tbe oats at only 43 cents
per bushel and the straw at $4 per
ton and the total cost of production
at $35.48, as detailed in the report,
which can be had free by applying
to the publications branch, Ottawa,
we have a profit of $10.76 per acre.
An extra yield of hay was also ey-
perienced at the farm, the cost of
producing which is placed at $28.76
pre acre and the profit at $26.10, the
yield having been $4.33 per acre and
the cost to produce $6.6 4per ton. The
seeding consisted of a mixture of red
clover, alsike and timothy, to which
six pounds of alfalfa seed were added
and which were mainly responsible
ior the large yield.
Corn silage is given ns producing
a profit of $4.61 per acre, but potatoes proved the most profitable of
all. They gave a yield of 332.3
bushels per acre, which 'cost $117.50
per acre to produce and valued at a
dollar per bushel, resulted in a profit
per acre of $214.71.
Wheat produced a prom of $19.97
and barley $15.80 per acre. The
yield of mangels was below the average and a loss is recorded. Corn
silge gave rather better results than
the mixture ot oats, peas and vetches
for silage.

Since bees can not migrate to a
warmer climate to escape the rigor
of th Canadian winters as do many
of ouur birds, and can not hibernate
during the winter aB do the solitary
insects and even some of the social
insects, they must follow the other
course possible, which is to lay in a
supply of heat-producing food with
which to generate heat when the
temperature falls below that in which
they can live.
During the summer, the bees, responding to the hoarding instinct, lay
ln their supply ot winter fuel, boney,
which usually amounts to several
times that actually required. This
fact is worthy of the attention of all
beekeepers, for the tendency ia to extract too cloBe; leave the bees too
little to winter on. In the fall, when
the last brood has emerged, the bees
form themselves Into a compact ball-
shaped nis"ss,the cluster, and within
the cluster occupy nearly all the cells
recently filled by tho brood and the
spaces between combs.
At first the cluster is usually located near the entrance of the hive,
and from) tliere it gradually moves
upwards and backwards as the winter advances, keeping all the while
In touch with the storeB of honey.
When the temperature is moderate
the cluster Is loose and the bees generate no heat, but when lt gets to 57
degrees F., the cluster becomes compact; then, as the mercury drops, the
bees consume stores aud generate
Though heat is generated, this
alone would be insufficient to keep
the vital functions ot the bees In operation had not they tho ability to
coimcrvo warmth by tho compacting
or tlghoniiig of the cluster.
The heat Is produced by the muscular activity of the bees at the center of tlio cluster, which generate it
hy moving the legs, abdomens, and
wings inl'auiiing. As the temperature falls the number of these aetivo
bees producing the heat increases.
Furthcrmiore, tho bees forming the
outside of the cluster are constantly
being replaced others from within
and this continuous movement also
produces heat, which increases as
the temperature drops owing to the
changing of location within the cluster increasing In rapidity.
In generating the necessary heat
to warm the cluster, the bees consume honey, the undigested portion
of which remains in their intestines
until an opportunity for flight presents itself, for beeB normally eject
waste matter only while on the wing.
During the cold winters in Canada,
as the bees are frequently confined
to the hive for several months, It is
very necessary that the winter stores
he of good quality. Should there bc
any doubt regarding this, they should
be exchanged by the beekeeper for
better stores or at least suprploment-
ed by sugar syrup. The hive out of
doors should be carefully packed and
well sheltered by a windbreak that
the bees mlay pass the winter In comfort and come out strong in tho

The 'mail   early" urgirigs promulgated last
year by ihe post oHice department nipt with a
gratifying respo: se    Though   reasonable success was attained, the goal is set  still   higher
for this year.   "Mail   earlier"  might  be  this
year's slogan.    Thc purpose is to relieve  postal   employees   ot   the   overwhelming    last-
minute rush of former  years  by distributing
the handling of parcels over a  longer  period,
entirely eliminating the peak of the load from
Christmas  itself.   The 'zero  hour" has been
advanced, it is announced.   Rural carriers will
make no deliveries on Christmas and city carriers will make one delivery on Christmas.   It
js   recommended   that   parcels be mailed between December 10 and December 20.   It is
urged  also  th'~t Christmas cards  be mailed
earlier, iest they be not delivered until after
th.i event.    The  matter of delayed shopping
antKrlelayed mailing is mainly a  habit.   Some
folks are constitutionally slow. To be before-
handed in any action is the   exception  rather
than the rule.    While   it  may   be practically
impossible to imduce some to act early.if those
who are amenable to suggestion do, the end is
gained by having at least a part of the business
out of the way before the procrastinating ones
come along.     Thus   the   congestion   which
might otherwise result is  i    some  measure
avoided.    It would be easier to shop early and
mail   early than to delay until the crowds are
greater, but habit causes some of us to put off
a lask as long as possible.    It is  the correc
tion of a bad habit which the post  office de
partment is seeking

A good typical Ayrthire tire
Many a man wfco Is undecided as
to the breed of dairy cattle that he
will select has been Influenced ln
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 lairs, or in offering good animals at public sales.
It gives people a chance to see and
know the kind of stock that a man i.s
breeding and paves the way for future business.
It ls essential that special care and
attention be given dairy animals far
ln 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 In 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 ln
good flesh. A good covering of flesh
adds to size, increases smoothness
and Indicates that thc animal ls
thrifty and ln good health. Dairy
unlmals being fitted need extra feed.
Stabling and blanketing are great
aids In putting the hair and hide in
condition. ,-•"*/ stabling In summer,'
the animal is protected from the hot
sun which makes the hide harsh and
stiff to tbe touch. A roomy box stall
ihat is kept clean and well bedded
Putting tm the finishing touches
provides desirable quarters. Continuous blanketing helps keep the animal clean, sweats the hide, thus Improving its handling finalities and
maker] the hair lay to the body. The
lilanlyjt need not be expensive but
it must be tied on securely.
Every dairy animal that is to be
exhibited should have tho hair
clipped from tiie entire body about •*
three weeks previous to tho date of
tbe 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 -ellln**-* value of the
A point often overlooked in 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 lf it combats the Ci'orts of tho attendant to
exhibit lt 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, the
man ln charge of an animal should
have one main thought In mind,
namely that of showing the animai
to advantage. By this is meant that
when it stands, Its feet are properly
placed, back straight and head alert.
Any movement on thc part of the attendant or animal should be as
graceful as possible. Until the ribbons are placed or the auctioneer's
hammer falls, tako no chances

Poems From Eastern Lands
Contentment of a Poor Recluse
My only door Bume pieces of crossed wood,
Within it 1 can reat enjoy.
I drink the water wimpling from tbe spring;
Nor hunger can my peace destroy.
Purged from ambition's aims I say, "Poor fish,
We need not bream caught io tbe Ho;
Nor, to possess the sweet of love, require
To Ts'e, to find a Keang, to go.
"Tbe man contented with his lot, a meal
Of Hsh without Ho carp can make;
Nor needs, to rest his domestic joy,
A Teze of Sung as wife to take."

But one bull moose may be bagged each season by a hunter. The
inajority of moose arc killed each

prohibited on the Island. Bear and
wildcat, for which thero is no closed
season, roam the woods of Nova Scotia. *Ruffed grouse, woodcock, snipe,
wild geese and many other varieties
of small game are plentiful and "afford the hunter every otppprtunity
of an excellent hunting holiday. The
province too is a mecca for the angler. The many streams and lakes
abound with salmon and trout. Off
the coast tuna, cod, haddock, pollock
and flounder fishing ls extensively
indulged In.

>.  Over MM potential cut-throats. Measuring

Unfortunately Mother Nature made
no provision for the growing army
of Isaak Waltons in her scheme of
things. Man supplements nature in
re-stocking the trout streams of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies, through
the agency of the Department of
Marine and Fisheries, which conducts
artificial Cut-throat_ spawning and
hatching operation in tbe Rockies
each spring.
Authorities have estimated that
only about three percent of all
Cut-throat trout, eggs naturally
spawned,, hatch. The reason given is
the,desire of fish spawning at other
times to feed on the newly laid eggs
with the result that the male Cutthroat, after driving off the enemies
fertilizes the eggs too late, when they
have absorbed so much water that
they cannot absorb the fertilizing
From 87 to 90 percent of eggs
artificially spawned at Banff and
Spray Lakes, hatch under artificial
methods. This is how it is done:
Towards th* end of Much Jnst
before spawning time the trout are
caught in nets, stripped, and returned to thc streams, while the
eggs from the female and fertilizing
fluid from the male Cut-throat are
mixed. In ten weeks the young fry
is ready for its new homo in the trout
stream where it reaches the length of
over eight inches in about fojr years.
The annual spring harvest of
Cut-throat eggs at Spray Lakes—
each female giving from 800 to 1,800
eggs—is about three-quarters of a
million. At present 524,824 Lock
Leven trout eggs, 172,918 Lake
Superior Salmon Trout, 615.90C Rainbow, and £,COl),000 Pickerel eggs are
batching in the Banff Hatchery. The
hatch for 1926 will also include one
million Cut-throat eggs imported
from Wisconsin and 250,000 from
Spray Lakes, making a total ol over
eight and a naif million eggs hatcheo
in the Canadian Pacific Rockies to
provide sport for anglers.
The outstanding example of the
good results accruing from tnis work
begun in 1914, is the growing annual
catch of Lake Superior Salmon
Trout at Lake Minnev.anka, about
nine miles from the C.P.R. Banff
Springs Hotel, wiille Spray Lakes, an
