later oo many conditions led to lbe

not such ts to necessitate any extensive rsliel manures. **

triete ol tbit provinoe are described
ae having proved very satistsotory.
Witb reference to tbe handling ot
fruit crops tbe superintendent states
tbat the problem is a tenons one.
The low prioes obtained by growers
hae compelled a low rate for Iruit
pickers. Wbere the work iB close o
the homes of the piokors and they

This is strange doctrine, in view of the enor
mous aud most profitable export trade of this
kind from the United States and from  Great
Britain. Think, for example, of the  immense
quantities of raw cotton sent every year from
American cotton plantations to Europe.    Has
it been found that this produces an exodus of
Americans  to tbe centers abroad where this
material is manufactured? Or should a crusade
be started to keep British coal at home, "con
serving" it for tho development of British industries? No one see in-j to have  proposed, as
Mr. Barnjum proposes about pulpwood,  that
such export business should be stopped.
There is an analogy closer still. Every year
we export great quantities of Canadian lumber. A very large part of it is just as truly
"raw" material for manufacturing purposes as
is pulpwood. Whatever force belohgs to the
contention that we sliould keep our pulpwood

at present, they would undoubtedly get such
material as they did use at a much cheaper
rate. Therein we find the key to this tireless
agitation, If the advocates of embargo had
their way, there is indeed one set of "sons of
Canada" that might well be driven across the
line, viz., thrise owners of wood-lots who
should have found their legitimate source of
income taken from them by new laws of their
native land. .     * Economist.

There are a number of factora
to be considered to insure good
Ignition: breaker points must be
kept clean and make perfect contact; make sure that the points
separate the proper, distance; <joil
connections must ba tight; test for
a broken down conrlensor; there li
considerable wear on the distributor segments, same can be cleaned
With 00 sandpaper.
Do not run spark plug wires
through fiber or motal tubing; cut
grooves ln two blocks of fiber and
run wires through grooves and bolt
the blocks together. This will overcome considerable ignition trouble.
A short ln the light wiring will
cause battery to discharge, and
tnay also cause a fire. The presence of a short is indicated by a
haavy dlsoharge tbrough the ammeter; a short la caused by a wire
pinching between the* frame of the
car, breaking the insulation; for
emergency repairs use friction tape
to Insulate the wire from frame.
A good many arrests are being
tnade for not having a tail light
burning. The tall light should be
connected ln series with the dash
light and then ln the event that the
tall light goes out the dash light
will go out also. When a six-volt
battery ls used, dash and tall light
(lobes must be three to four volts
each, six to eight volts on head
lights) with a twelve-volt battery,
stash and tall lights must be six to
eight volts, head lights twelve to
sixteen volts.
The horn must respond the minute the button ls pressed. With a
little attention it will respond; lubricate the bearings by removing
the horn cover, clean commutator
with 00 sandpaper. To adjust iir.rn
loosen adjusting screw, turn with
screwdriver and adjust to get the
Best possible sound. It the motor
commutator ls badly worn, horn
Should be taken off and armature
must be put in a lathe to true up
the commutator, new brushes and
Brush springs should be Installed.
There are times when the ignition switch ls misplaced or lost and
it ls absolutely Impossible for the
average driver to start car without
the aid of a skilled electrician.
Here are a few instructions on
