Wester^ Irrigation Congress
.Recommends Alfalfe for
Irrigation and alfalfa formed tbe
prioctpa. theme of tba afternoon
eeeeion of tbe irrigation convention
in Lethbridge on   Wednesday.   W.
H. Fairfield, director of tbe experimental farm, epoke of tbe  success
whioh attended the growth  ol the
plant in that part of the  province,
•nd gave as  big belief  tbat within
•  short  time 40 lo 50 per cent oi
the land noder irrigation in tbe district would be growing alfalfa,   lhe
great advantage to land oo   which
alfalfa is grown w tbat it adds au essential asset in tbe rotation of crops,
tbe yield being 60 to 100 per  cent
In support of tbis statement  it  il
said tbat io the  experimental  station last year potatoes planted  on
alfalfa soild yielded "5 bushels  per
•ore.   Spring wheat .tbat followed
yielded 69 bushels per acre.
Joseph T, Hinkle, secretary of
tbe Oregon Irrigation association)
himself an alfalfa grower, gave hie
experience as to tbe value of alfalfa
cultivation. He considered that tbe
railways ihould belp tbe alfalfa
termer* of Southern Alberta in creating and finding wider markets for
mutual benefit. Speaking of colonisation, tlr. Hinkle urged tbe re
sponsibilities of conducting colonisation schemes. He pictured whet
wbat northwestern Canada might
become—an empire within an empire—to be made possible by the
thickly settled communities whioh
irrigation would bring in its train.
He laid tbe onus on railways and
land colonizers to stay witb ths
colonist until he made a success of
his venture, and not to be content
witb merely selling land.
in southern Britian Columbia is true
it would undoubtedly be  tetter tor
them  botb  socially and morally if
they bad ra few clergymen  among
them. As to tbe boarding of money
tq  wbich  Mr. Veregin   confesses,
wbile everyone admits tbat thrift ls
• virtue, it can he carried too  far,
just se prodigality can, and we are
of opinion tbat we ebould not  encourage large numbers of people wbo
keep  to themselves in this way to
settle among us    Apart altogether
from the manifest evils of having a
separate end alien community growing op io the provincr.their peculiar
views on money must have  R   seriously disturbing financial effect on
the districts which are so unfortunate ss to be situated   near  tbem.
Granting  tbe  Doukhobors to lead
simple lives, to be healthy and  to
agree among themselves, Mr. Vere-
gin's article all the more  strongly
bears  out  the contention of tbose
wbo have studied their social condi
tions, tbat unless steps  nre taken to
compel them to conform to the laws
and customs of tbe country in wbicb
they   live, they will yet   become   a
grave  menace to   tb.e state.—Vancouver Sun.

Money Value of a Woodpecker
Prof. W. T. Hornaday, director
of the New York zoological park,
says that if birds were u numerous
today as tbey were sixty years ago, it
would mean a saving ot many million dollars to American farmers.
The slaughter of migratory birds is
surely followed hy the increase of
destructive insects. Among tbe best
of the farmer's bird friends are the
woodpeckers, especially the red
headed members of the species.
In proof, one careful observer
says: "A pair of tbem nested in a
dead   cottonwood   Iree   near    my
from tbeir own lands. Tbey hsve,
says Mr, Veregin, no alcoholic
drinks, no drug stores, -oo doctors,
no lawyers and no clergymen.
Some of these things are advantages, no doubt, but the benefit derived from others of tbem is very
questionable. The Doukhobor communities may congratulate themselves that they bave no alcoholic
drinks; they should rejoice if they
are able to do without lawyers, doctors ind drug stores, but if * "the

Experimental Farms
For more than a quarter of a century tbe Dominion experimental
farms bave been carrying on experiments to find out tbe best kind
of crops and animals and tbe-best
way of handling tbem for profit.
Tbis bu been going on not only at
tbe Central farm at Ottawa, but also
in the maritime provinces, tbe prairie provinces and in British Columbia. Tbe benefits tbat bave resulted
to the Canadian farmer from this
work are undoubtedly -jyry great,
but still thousands qt aarneit men
are not receiving the* Tut! "advantage
of what is being done for tbem.
Perhaps many do not receive the
reports and bulletins containing tbe
information, wbile others receive
tbese publications regularly, but do

lessons from them. In order to help
especially this class of busy men
and women there has been issued by

In addition, msny of tbe recent developments of the farms system are

Perforated Coins
Perforated coins were never in favor In the United States, though various efforts were made to popularise
them. The first United States coin
with a perforated centre was a gold
dollar Issued In 1849, which had a
square hole In tie midJle of the plan-
chet. It was the forerunner of the
gold dollar Issued by the United
States Mint in 1849. The coin wt.s
engraved, not struck from dies. The
ner.t United States coin with a perforated centre was issued from the
Philadelphia Mint In 1850 and was of
Ihe denomination of one cei,;. It
vas about the size ot the bronze cent
row in use. At that time the large
ild-fashloned. copper cent was in gen-
erl circulation and the perforated coin
received the asm. of 'ring cent.' The
designer reasoned that by means of
the perforation the cent could be
distinguished by touch from\tho dime.
Another perforated cent issued the
same year showed two rings in the
field, with the words: Cent, One-tenth
Silver. The reverse showed an olive
wreath around the perforation, and
the words, United States of America.
The Mint authorities undertook ito
design a coin that would answer all
requirements aud the pieces were
struck with both pierced and perfect
centres in silver, copper, nickel, and
composition metal, six varieties in all,
without counting the various meals,
but none of the designs was favored
by the government authorities., and
consequently they were never put In
general circulation.
The only gold half-dollar ever produced at the United States Mint was
struck In 1852. It had a perforation
in the centre, and the obverse showed a wavy circle around the perforation, with the inscription: United
States of America, around the border. The reverse was blank. The
'.oln was exactly half the weight of
the dollar. Regardless of the generally accepted Idea, the gold fifty-
cent pieces with which the public is
familiar were not an Issue ot the
United States, but were manufactured
by California Jewellers. There has
not been any ..ttempt to introduce the
perforated coin ln the .United States
sines 1884. ln that year two pieces
of the denominations of one and five
cents were issued at tl^ Philadelphia
Waste of Coal
Twenty times as much coal is now
taken from the mines of the United
States as was taken in 1850. It ls
estimated that i.t the present rate of
consumption all the coal will be goi.e
In 2050.
Most of the coal is wasted. For
every ton of anthracite, a ton and. a
half nre wasted In mining; for every
ton of bituminous coal, half a ton ls
wasted. Thousands of tons of slaok
and culm are burned to free the mines
from obstruction. This could be
made Into briquettes with coal tar and
Eight per cent of the coal us-ed In
manufacturing districts goes up in
smoke. The smoke Injures health,
damages clothing clothing, buildings
and vegetation, and the annual loss
trom this source is estimated at (500,-
000,000. '
But there ls more waste than this.
It is estimated that with the best firing in use, only 16 per cent of. the
heat units of .coal are developed Into
power. There ls still greater loss
in producing light. Not one per cent
of the energy of coal Is used In producing electric light.
These facts ate given In an article
In the New York Independence, by
Mr. Chapln, instructor In economics
and sclology in Smith college. They
are, no doubt, continually present to
the scientific mind, and It is likely
that some day a more economic process of turning the heat of coal Into
power will be Invented.

The late John H. Twachtnian, the

ground, of the height at which the

was pnly one particular ln which he
would suggest any change.
And what ls that? inquired the host

Dirt Eaters
The practice of eating earth is not
confined to any race or region of the
world. In .America, several tribes of
Indians of the northern as well as
of the southern continent, are given
to using earth as food. Different
varieties ot clay seem to be preferred.
The Pawnee Indians ijsed a yellowish clay, which they shaped Into little
balls that were allowed to dry in the
air and were then slowly roasted at
the open fire. When the clay attained a red color the balls were removed, moistened with water and eaten.
These clay balls were especially Uked
when served In connection with fish,
and seem to have promoted digestion.
The Ttnimeh Indians, ot the Mackenzie river used to resort to earth as
food in times of famine. They dug
out the clay found In hollows along
the banks of the river. In prosperous years they chewed the clay as a
delicacy. The Apaches mixed powdered clay in their meal before making
this Into their rude loaves of bread.
The Indians In the uplands of Bolivia ate a light clay that ls nearly
white In color; this they used either
raw or ln the form of cakes of various shapes, which were sold In the
market places. They also prepared
a sauce with the clay; this they ate
with boiled potatoes.
Among the negroes of the Guinea
cpast, as well as among those in West
Africa, tbe eating ot dirt Is very common. The natives of the Soudan dig
their favorite clay from between layers of sandstone in the banks of the
rivers. The natives of Java prepare
their cakes of clay containing ochre.
These are sold In the public markets.

Man and Wife Fatten on Grape-Nut*
Thc notion that meat ls necessary
for real strength and the foundation
ot solid flesh is now no longer as prevalent a* formerly.
Excessive meat eaters are usually
sluggish a part of the time because
they are not able to tally digest their
food, and the undigested portion ls
changed into wbat Is practically a
kind of poison that acts upon the
blood and nerves, thus getting all
through the system.
1 was a heavy i.ieat cater," writes
a Western uan, "and up to two years
ago, was ln very poor health. I suffered with Indigestion so that I only
weighed 95 poundu.
"Then I heard about Grape-Nuts
food and decided to try It. My wife
kughed at me at first, but when I
gained to 126 pounds and felt ao fine,
Bhe thought she would eat Grape-Nuts
too. "Now she la fat and well and
haa gained 40 pounds. We never
have Indigestion any more and aeldom
teel the desire for meat.
A neighbor of ours, 68 yeara old,
was troubled with Indigestion for
sears, and was a heavy meat eater.
Now since he ha* been eating Grape-
Nut* regularly, he aay* he la well and
never haa Indigestion.
1 could name a lot of persons who
have rid themselves of Indigestion by
changing Irom a heavy meat diet to
Grape-Nut*." "There's a Reason."

When the Stomach is Wrong the
Whole Body Suffers-How to
Keep It Healthy
Indigestion la one of the moat distressing maladies afflicting mankind.
The stomach is unable to perform the
work nature calls upon lt to do, and
the result is extreme pain after eating,
nausea, heartburn, painful fluttering
of the heart, sick headache, and often
a loathing of food, even though the
sufferer Is halt starved. People with
poor digestion are prone to try all
sorts of experiments to aid the pro-
oess ot digestion, and there is only
one way ln which the trouble can be
actually cured, and that ls through
the blood. That Is why the tonic
treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills cures even the most obstinate
cases of Indigestion. Tbey make the
rich, red blood that strengthens the
stomach and Its nerves, thus enabling
It to do Its work. The process is
simple, but the result means a good
appetite, and Increased health and
pleasure In life. Mr. R. Lussler, of
Sorel, Que., offers ample proof of
this. He says: "For several years
I was a sufferer from Indigestion, and
the torture I suffered after meals
was often almost unendurable. Often
I would go without a. meal rather
than undergo the suffering that foi
lowed. Accompanying the trouble
I had headaches, dizziness, and often
a feeling of nausea. All the time I
was taking one medicine after another in the hope of getting relief,
but without avail. Finally I read of
the case of a similar sufferer cured
through the use ot Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and I decided to try them.
I took the Pills steadily for about six
weeks with result that I was fully
cured, and could eat anything I cared
for. I may add that I have not since
had any return ot ths trouble."
It you are suffering from indigestion
do not waste time experimenting, but
begin to cure yourself today with Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which go .right
to the root of the trouble through the
blood. Bold by all medicine dealers

The Story of the Two Unfortunate Princes ,
Tbe rouinuce-trngcdy of English history Is tbe career ot tbe Duke ot Gloucester, afterward King Richard HI.
Within tt are many stories, snd Rlsb-
srd Is botb tbe hero and tbe villain
»f every one of tbem.
Wben King Edward IV., Richard's
brother, died, Edward's oldest son, wbo
became king, was a little boy. Richard, whose courage was equaled only
by bis ambition aud who possibly si
the time designed to make himself
king, ut once dashed ot tbe bead of a
troop of his ndhereuts to where young
Edward was aud captured him.
. The uext Important scene In tbe tragedy ta tbe little king riding 90 horseback from tbe city or London to West-
minster abbey, bis Uncle Richard riding beside blm, regarding bis nephew-
sovereign wltb every pretense ot reverence and affection. It Is probable
tbat Rlrburd was even tben platting to
supplant tbe cbild: tbat tbls apparent
devotion was to win Ibe confidence ot
tbe people wltb a view to furthering
his opportunity, bnt whether tbs arch
Send then contemplated murdering his
brother's son has uot been proved.
Tbe little king's mother as soon ss
sbe saw reason to fear ber brother-in-
law took refuge wltb her otber children ln the sanctuary ot Westminster,
for In those daya no person, king or
commoner, mlgbt drag one from the
sanctuary without incurring the anathemas of the cburcb. But ths boy remained wltb bis uncle, wbo slso secured possession of bis younger brother, the Duke of Clarence.
Tbe Tower of London, wblcb for
more than two centuries haa been only
t fortress und Is now mostly an object of curiosity for tourists, wss tben
also a palace and a prison. Richard
fixed tbe residence of bla nephews
tbere, assuming to reign In tbe minor
king's name. England at tbe Urns
needed s strong governing band. Richard succeeded ln convincing certain
-persons of InBtieuce tbat be bad better
be king. Others he threatened; others
he put out of bis wsy by bebeadtog
Ihem. Many of tbs commoners were
with blm.
When all wss ripe be seized tbe scepter. From tbe flrst tbs little princes
were virtually prisoners In tbe Tower,
tbough tbey were treated with all ths
reverence due a king and a prince ot
tbe blood But tbey never enme out
from the gloomy walls. Tbs people
never saw them. Young as they were,
tbey wero old enough to realise that
they were In tha bsnds of one ln wbose
wsy tbey stood snd tbelr lives were
In danger.
Richard hnd a soo of his own whom
he Idolized snd wbom bs desired
sbould succeed btm on tbs throns ot
England. Probably tbls fcaturs of the
esse turned bis mind to ths murder of
the two princes, his nephews, for so
long ss tbey lived tbelr title to th*
crown wonld stand before tbst ot Rich-
srd's son. At any rate, tber* cam* a
time when Richard determined to murder Ms nepbsws snd looked shout for
soms one to do tbe deed.
He sent an order to tbs lieutenant ot
tbe Tower to bare tbs princes put to
destb. Tbs officer refused to obey It
Io this bs braved tbs king, than sn aU
powerful sovereign, but to fores a maa
to commit tbs murdsr would hsvs st
ones mads th* murdsr known, nndUhls
did not suit Richard's purpose. When
be received word that tb* lieutenant
would not do bis bidding bs lsmented
 , , p.
ed* by "tbelr unci*. IB addition to men
horror at tbe crime and their bereave,
ment, tbey dreaded lest the. king mur
derer, defying tbe sacrcdness of thai!
refuge, would drag tbem from tht
sanctuary and Ull tbem also. Aa tlma
passed and nothing waa heard -by thi
people of tbe princes, wbo were supposed to be living In the royal apart-
ments of tb* Tower, they began to wonder. Tben tbe dreadful news spread
from mouth to moutb, aod a great horror fell upon all England.
At last ths murderer received his Aral
punishment Bis beloved son, for whom
ke had committed the crime, sickened
snd died. Richard haa no orner son,
•nd at bla death, after all, ths crown
would rest on another head tbsn ons
sf his own family,
MtMMsTblls tbs queen mot'aer of tb*
murdered king remained tn the sanctuary. Her oldest daughter, Elizabeth,
wi* now heir apparent to the throne.
The Duke of Buckingham, a powerful
aoble, conceived the idea ot marrying
this princess to a prlncs of tbs blood,
tbe Earl ot Richmond. Ths princess
being ot tbe bouse of York snd tbs
sari ot tbs houae of Lancaster-two
families that bud kept England In a
orotracted warfare bv their disputes
tor the crown—the marriage would
unite the two families und end the
wars. Richmond was In France, but
he crossed the channel and landed In
England at the bead of a French fore*.
Ib.o attempt, however, was a failure
Rlcbnrd with his accustomed energy
attacked blm before ths French and
English columns were prepared ta
light snd defeated and routed them.
The Duke of Buckingham wns captured
by Richard and immediately beheaded. 1
A second landing was made by Richmond, and Rlchurd again sprung forth
to hla work. 1
On the king's way to tbe battle wbich
was to decide bis fate he slept In an
Inn culled the Blue Boar. Richard
took wltb him bis own bed and had lt
sst up ror him to sleep In the night before the battle. He bad on bis con-
■clence tbe crime of murder, bis nobles
were beginning to desert him, and
tbere was no ons to whom be mlgbt
turn for comfort 1
In a bouse not tar away lived a boy,
under tbe care of a mau who, though
be gave blm every comfort and educated blm, told him thnt be wus not
bla father. Tbe boy'a name waa Richard Pluntagonet, and this Is sll he
knew ot bis pnreutuge. 1
Tb* nlgbt beforo tbe battle of Bos-
worth a trooper rode up to the house
wbere the boy, Plantngenct, lived nnd
told bim to come with him. They
went to tbe Inn wbere tbe king was
lodged, and tbe boy stood In tbe royal
presence. Richard embraced blm and
told blm that be was bis father, tbough
tbe led hnd not been born In wedlock.
"Tomorrow," suid the king, "I Dgbt
for my crown. If I win I will acknowledge you, and yon sball hereafter Ilr*
wltb me as my son." 1 \

Standard fruit Boxes
During July the inspectors of tbs
department of agriculture, headed
by Chief Inspector L. G. Clarke,
were strictly enforcing the law with
respect to tbe nse of standard size
fruit boxes.
Tbe standard Canadian box is a
4-5 quart. 56.5 cubic inohes, or 2-5
quart. 27.75 cubic inohes. During
the early part of the season wben
only California fruit was offering,
the inspectors were disposed to take
a lenient view of Ibe matter, but as
our own fruit came on tbe market.the
"sbort" boxes from south of the
line were promptly dealt with.
Puyallup dealers  are   perturbed
iver the adoption of a similar law in
Chicago. The Washington state
legislature at its last session passed
similar legislation, hut although it
was intended to come into effect at
once, it was found that to prevent
hardship it would-have tn be suspended uniil the first of the year.
The dealers bad already Blocked up
with smaller boxes.
