Local Poultry Breeder Tells
How to Fatten Birds
for Market
At the regular monthly meeling
of the Orand Forks Poultry association, beld in the office of the secretary, W. E. Hadden, considerable
business of importance was transacted. It was also decided that the
association Bhould donate a large
silver shield, to be contested for an
nuallv at the British Columbie Provincial Poultry show; A splendid
—paper was read by C. C: Heaven on
"Fattening Birds for the Market,"
He said, in part:
There   is   no doubt that a great
deal more profit could be made from
our surplus cockerels and cull pullets if we took more pains to  fatten
tbem properly; so I bave chosen the
subject of crate fattening the   birds,
in whicb line I bave had very con-
iiderable experience in the past, and
found a very good margin of  profit
-  resulting from tbe  same    Tbe best
weight to have the birds at the commencement  of  the  fattening is 3J
pounds, and  if  fed properly they
should gain one pound in the first
two weeks and about as mucb iu tbe
following ten days, three and a half
weeks being as long aa tbe birde can
profitably be kept in tbe crates.   If
it is  desired to still further fatten
the birds a cramming machine  will
have to be resorted to; but person
ally I bave not found the use of this
machine to pay, as it is a  considerable job to cram a lot  of birds, and
one is very liable to ohoke an occasional bird.   Twelve   birds  of  3J
pounds  will  consume   IJ pounds
eaob meal, but only 1 pound for tbe
first  four days, or their appetites
will   become  cloyed; and  be sure
never  to  leave  any   food in   tbe
trough.   The following are the rations  that  I   have found the most
No. 1—5 parts cornmeal, 4 parts
shorts, 1 part Pearl oat-dust, aod 1
part animal meal. For hot weather.
No. 2—2 parts cornmeal, 2 parts
buckwheat, 1 part oat-dust. Good
any time
No. 3—4 parts cornmeal. 2 parts
buckwheat, 2 parts oaldust.
Uood for cold weather.
Cooked potatoes is tbe only vegetable that is any good to mix   with
there   is  a   net profit of 15.70 on
twelve birds.
The fattening crates should be
made of slats, 20 inches square, to
hold four birds; but tbe best plan is
to make them 5 feet long and 20
inches wide and 20 inches high,
divided into three compartments,
wbich will bold a dozen birds.
Place a movable trough in froftt,
wbioh can be removed as soon as
tbey bave finished their meal.
Have the back slat in tbe bottom 2
inches from the back, whicb will allow the droppings to drop on the
Pearl oat-dust can be' secured
from the several oatmeal mills
When tbe birds are ready for
marbet, be eure not to feed tbem for
at least twenty-four hours, so that
the crops and intestines will be
quite empty. It tbe birds are to
be shipped, kill tbem by breaking
the neck, as they keep in good
shape longer if the skin is not
Pick them dry—do not scald tbem
—and you will have a nice, white
carcass of tender, juicy meat, with
very little refuse, for it has been
proved by numerous tests that during the fattening process almost tbe
entire gain in weight is in tbe flesh,
tbe weight in bone being practically
tbe same at the end of the fattening
period as at tbe beginning.

Plans for Provincial Show
The British Columbia Poultry
show. will this year be held from
December 9 to 13 at Grand Forks.
Tbis will be the first occasion on
whicb the provincial show bas been
held in tbe interior of the province,
aud it promises to equal if not surpass in success, from the point of
view of tbe number and class of tbe
exhibits shown, the shows previous
ly beld at Vancouver and Victoria.
Interior poultry breeders are earn
estly bent on making tbe show the
most successful ever held in the
province, and a great number of
special cups and prizes are being put
tor competition, among whicb are a
cup by the Trail Poultry association, a shield by the Grand Forks
Poultry association, and a shield by
the West Kootenay Poultry association, wbich has its headquarters at
A meeting of the executive of ihe
provincial poultry association will
be beld in Nelson shortly to arrange
tbe final details of the prize list.
Executive members will be bere
from Sydney, Victoria, Vancouver
and Grand Forks.   Geo. Horsiead,
The merchants vs. the botel men
and barbere played a great baseball
game at tbe fair grounds on Wed
nesday afternoon. That it develop! d
into a slugging match, was not the
fault of the pitchers. The expert
wielding of the stick by tbe batters
was tbe true cause uf tbe double
figures in the score. Had the stick
work been of tbe ordinary variety,
both clubs would probably have
been shut out without a tally. As
it was the score waB only 27 to 23
in favor Mclnnes' team' al the end
of the game.
The game was essentially a bat
ting and base-running contest, although at frequent intervals the
pitchers did effective wurk. Both Mclnnes and Pare showed wonderful
speed, and all the latest curves were
sent across the plate. But, as has
been previously stated, the batsmen
were all heavyweights Dan McKinnon and L. Alexander appeared
to be able to hit tbe ball whenever
tbey desired to do so.
In the first few innings the merchants gained a long lead—16 to 6
in tbeir favor is the way tbe score
read at tbe end of the fifth. At this
juncture Pitcher Pare was noticed to
turn an anxious countenance in tbe
direction of tbe overhanging clouds
and offer up a fervant prayer for a
deluge. But the comptroller of tbe
weather bureau paid no heed to him.
In tbe first balf of the sixth four
hotelmen and barbers crossed the
home plate. In second balf three
merchants held down tbe bases
when A. E. Savage stepped up to
tbe plate. Pitcher Pare threw one
of hia must puzzling curves, but tbe
batsman saw it coming, and with a
savage swing of the bat he sent tbe
sphere through the invisible. By
and by the ball came back, but not
until four runs had been tallied.
Many other notable hits were made.
Mr. Gardner made a three-bagger.
This meant tbat tbe ball crossed tbe
international boundary line. E. E.
Gibson struck the sphere wilb such
superhuman force that he dislocated
his right shoulder. Numerous otber
instances of a like exhibition of
strength might be cited, but   what's
a Solid Concrete Packing House
Frache Bros., nf the 'Columbia
greenhouses, hive completed their
solid concrete packing house. The
building is 34x50 feet, one storey
high with a basement, and is as near
fire-proof as it is possible to make
it. The ground floor is divided into
office, packing room and dark rooms
for storing flowers. The floor is
constructed of 2x4 planks, set on
edge. The building cost about
$3000, and it is said to be tbe best
packing house in tbe province.
D. Graham has struck some rich
ore in tbe Togi claim near Greenwood. It'assays over $400 to the
ton in silver and gold. The rich
ore was found at the bottom of a
shaft, -.'<) feet frum tbe surface. Tbe

once celebrated Providence mine.

tbe Tranquille prospect aa he glanced
at tbe Sand Point in   the North
Bend of tbe   English  River.    But
his   pangs   returned,   so   be said:
"Here will 1 have an illicit wet (III-

that Shepards who Rideout to guard

slapping mud into walls for a dam.
Further on, in a Sidewood of Cypress he remarked an Indian Head,
but he feared not, for all who go

Raise Horses In Yukon
Horses are raised successfully far
up in the Yukon territory, where abundance of fine land is available for pasturing. Late in the fall ot 1911 a
number of Oregon horses used the previous summer hy the international
boundary survey corps were taken to
the head of the White river, near the
International boundary line aud turned out for winter. The mares and all
lhe colts lived and are doing well,
making more hardy animals than their
predecessors. Several Instances are
known in which colts foaled ln the
far north have grown into the hardiest of horses, having become fully
Inured to the severity of the winters.
When horses have lived for some
length of time in this region they become naturally protected from the extreme cold by lhe frow.il of a lonrer
coul of hair.

students in the graduating class at
a California theological school this
year are Japanese. Why should the
t'alifornlans permit this?
Oh, that's all right. Theological
students are never expected to hold
any property.

Claims 'Staked' In Forty Fathomt of
Captain Heater, of the Victoria, (B.
C.) fishing schooner Jessie, and his
crew are the hopeful owners of a gold
mine over which forty fathon.3 ct the
Pacific octan roll. The claims are
staked with buoys In the absence of
pegs of the requisite length, and in
order to convince the world of the
genuineness of their discovery a barrel ot quartz was Irought to port on
board the ve.sel.
Describing the events that led to
the staking of the submarine gold-
field, Captain Heater said that the
fishermen were out in their dories one
day, and *whe.i they returned to the
schooner they reported having made
a great catch. He was told that ln
the nets wSre foun-', large quantities
of star fish, which in the West Coast
waters grow to an enormous size. The
star fish were place on deck, and the
fishermen also started to pry off pebbles and small stones. One ot the
fishermen noticed tho stones glistening in the sun when the star fish were
hauled abroad, and a hasty examination was performed to discover the
reason. When they felt satisfied
that the claim waB a good one, Captain
Heater and his me- decided to stake
lt. The mine Ib located oft Fox
Mountain, British Columbia, between
Kyuquota and Cape Cook.

who was In the country, for money.
He pointed to the counter suppll d

for a quarter ot t.n hoar, and then
handed ln the following:

She tore It up, walked over to the

. • Deadly Work
Sir Robert Edgectimbe gives an an-
dent Jibe this local edge and setting:
A Dorset doctor of somewhat boastful temperament *was dining one day
at a big dinner party, when the conversation after dinner turned upon the
army aa a profession. The doctor
remarked that his parents had made
a great mistake ln not sending him In
to the army, tor which he declared
himself eminently fit.
Oh, you make a great mistake, said
a Dorset squire across the table; you
would not hnve killed half as many
if you had gone Into the army as you
have In your own profession.
Confound It, said the uptown druggist, that woman took aV. '>.ke_ change
I had ln the drawer.

No, no, she's oi e of your regular

To cure Lumbago — surely It's a
good thing to know how. ils information meant to Jno. E. Neave the
difference between invalidism and robust health. Writing from his home
near Cornwall, he says:—"A severe
and prolonged attack of Lumbago in
my youth rendered me at all times
liable to aches In the back and loins.
So established became the predisposition, and so frequent the at'.-.cks, I
confess 1 accepted the condition as my particular weakness to
be borne with as much composure as
any evil circumstances might permit.
One day an unusually bad attack developed, and unfortunately there was
no medicine cE any kind in.the house.
I sent to a neighbor for help and received with a strong recommendation
a bottle of Nerviline. My friend was
surprised we didn't use Nerviline, Baying that they found use for lt ln their
family almost every day. So quickly
did Nerviline check the attack, and
so grateful was the relief, that I was
in a day ou the high road to recovery.
I have cured my tendencies to Lumbago with Nerviline, and consider lt
the most powerful pain-subduing liniment ever made.
For curing colds, hoarseness, tight
cheat and winter Ills Nerviline la a
marvel; aB for Lumbago, Sciatica and
Rheumatism, Nerviline is considered
to be without a peer. In the home
it ls especially valuable, because lt
cures cramps ln half a minute, stops
nausea, controls vomiting and upset

use, wherover there Is pain, apply
Nerviline. Get the 60c. family size

Can Only Be Had Through Rich
Red Blood.
When the blood ls poor and thin
and the stomac'.. ln consequence is
Imperfectly supplied with oxidized
blood and -nerve force, the digestive
process be.omes s'ow and fermentations of the food goes on, with the
formation of gas and certain acids.
The pressure ot the gas causoB pain
ln the stomach; sometimes H. affects
the heart. When the gas ls belched
out through the mouth tbe patient is
temporarily relieved, the sour risings
ln the throat, and the burning sensations in tbe throat and stomach are
caused by the acid fermentations.
There are plenty ot things to neutralize these acids, or to "sweeten the
etomack" r. lt Is called, but they do
not cure the trouble. Pure, rich
blood which will tone up the stomach
and enable lt to do the work nature
Intended lt to do Ib tl . only road to
a cure. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
make new, rich, red blood—that is
why they curo even the most obstinate
cases of indigestion a The following
ls a bit ot proof. Miss Minnie
Greene, ot Hall's Bridge, Ont., says:
"About a y*ar ago I was greatly
troubled with my stomach. Everything 1 ate caused me pain and distress. I would feel aB though I was
starved, but when meal time came the
Bight of food caused a feelluj ct loathing. There were <".ays when I could
not even hold milk ou my stomach,
and my head would ache bo that I
could hardly keep from screaming.
Only those who have suffered from
stomach trouble know the torture I
suffered. I tried almost every remedy recommended, but found not the
least benefit until I began taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. These 1 used
for a couple of months and they worked a perfect cure and 1 am again enjoying good health and able to ent
freely all kinds of food."

Blank came ii:.

A Famous Comedian
Arthur Roberts, the well-known
comedian, ln his early days was a
humble clerk by day, and at nlgbt
kept London In.merriment. His fellow-clerks never Imagined tor one moment that the comedian everyone was
talking about was the quiet youth who
sat amongst them. Roberts enjoyed
the situation, and perplexed the oflice
by Bending tickets with Mr. Arthur
Roberts' compliments.
At last his musical work became so
heavy tbat he had to resign. One of
tbe clerks ventured to ask If he bad
got another situation. Oh, yes, I
have an evening job. That won't
bring you ln much money, laughingly
calculated the clerk; you had better
stay on here with your good wages.
But Roberts did not think so, and
casually mentioned that the evening's
work brought him about $200. Then

Cool Courage
A tiger belonging to the King of
Oude escaped one night, not long ago,
from the menagerie fronting tbe
Hoogly, swam the river, and entered
the Botanical Gardens at Hourah.
Early the next morning two gentlemen, one ot whom I know, strolled
Into the gardens. When turning a
clump ot palms the tiger sprang upon
one ot them, pinned him to the ground
and began to lick him. His companion rushed up to the animal, caught
him by both ears and kicked him!
Recovering his set.ses, and realising
tLe futility of his action, he slowly
backed from the scene, and when
some bushes intervened, ran to the
curator's hcise, seized a gun and on
returning to the spot found the tiger
Bttll licking his unconscious victim.
He then realised th '. the weapon waB
a duck gun, cbarg t wltb largo shot
only, to Are which at even a short
distance meant possible death to his
friend without killing the tiger. He
walked straight up to the animal, put
the gun to Its brain, and shot lt dead.
The friend was but little Injured,
his face only being disfigured where
the tiger had taken the. skit off when

After taking ten boxes I was again examined by the doctor, and he told me

This ls the statement of Mr. David
Heon, well-known and highly respected here, and he ls only one ot many
ln thiB neighborhood who have found

It Is cures such as this that have

the Atlantic to the Pacific as the remedy that never falls to cure kidney
disease, no matter where or in what
form lt ls found.
Dodd's Kld.tey Pills are no cure-
all. They simply cure diseased kidneys. The reason they cure backache, dropsy, rheumatism, neuralgia,
diabetes, urinary troubles'and Bright's
disease Is that atl of these are either
diseases of the kidneys or are caused
by disordered kidneys falling to do
their work.

The Solar Plexus a
Great Nerve Centre
With the single exception of the
brain itself, the solar plexus ts the
most Important nerve centre ln the
human body.
Situated Just back of the stomach
and close to the spinal cord, the solar plexus supplies the motor nerves
to the vital organs. Injury to or
weakness ot the solar plexus consequently means Incapacity of the vital
organs o( the body. This explains
why a blow which reaches the solar
plexus means helplessness to the person receiving lt.
These nerr. centres all demand an
enormous quantity of good, rich blood
and, falling to get this, the r.-.rve cells
are starved and deplt'ed, and (all to
supply vital energy to tbe digestive
and eliminating organs.

that this was a good world and tbat

everybody was all rlgbt and the goose
bmig high. Then there came a ring
at (be bell. Mr. Bowser answered lt
In person, as be was expecting a neigh-'

man waiting to say to him:
"JI/ dear slr,_ 1 want a moment's
conversation with you on a strictly
business affair."
He was admitted In a grudging way,

"After fifteen years of bard work I

Mr. Bowser bad bcen gum gamed two

bnck to the slttlug room.
"Don't buy it nt any price," ssld
Mrs. Bowser as sbe looked at It. "It's

"Do you mean tbat the man takes

to Mrs, Bowser to say:
"How yon  can  steel  your  heart

"Mr. Bowser, will yon step here a

He had no intention ot buying the
watcb. He meant to get rid o( the
man at once. But Mrs. Bowser's interference nettled blm and changed bis
plans. Turning to the man, be said:
"Tbe watcb Is well worth $50, and I
should be glad to give you that sum to

Mrs. Bowser called- again, but Mr.
Bowser passed over tbe money, patted
tbe man of Integrity ou the shoulder
snd closed tbe door after blm. Then
he returned to tbe sitting room, placed
the watcb end ring on tbe mantel and
sst down without a word. After a
quarter of an bour of silence Mrs.
Bowser went upstairs to keep clear of
any further row, and tbe expected
neighbor came In. Of course he was
told o( tbe honest business man and
shown tbe watcb and ring. He began
to grin as soon as tbey were placed in

growing paler.
"I'm laughing at tbe cheek -of tbe

"A heap more than you do, I tbould

Well, well, I wouldn't have believed Itl"
He Gets Even.
As tbe situation was somewhat embarrassing tbe neighbor didn't stay

made his way to the door and opened
