Excellent Food  for Dairy
Cows, Hogs, Sheep and
Thousand headed kale has been
grown extensively for many years in
Great Britain, in common with many
varieties of rape and cabbage. Introduced about, thirty five years ago into
Oregon, where it yields, under favorable conditions, over 35 tons of green
food per acre, its popularity in that
state as a forage crop is great. It appears well up in the list of such plants
experimented with at the Ontario
agricultural eollege, attaining a height
of 35 inches, and furnishing 26.6 tons
per acre aa an average for six years
Thousand.headed kale is hardier
than moat varieties of the cabbage
family, and less subject to injury from
disease and insects than thn Scotch
and curled varieties. It is found that
until a temperature below 10 degrees
,Kahr. is reached, no ham is experienced by this plant in the field.
At a fodder it is exceedingly nutritious, suitable for fall and early winter
feeding. It prolonga the aaason of
green foods, is a good soiling crop, and
where corn can not be profitably
grown, replaces silage. It ia an excellent food for dairy cows, helping
admirably in the economic production
of milk, and is well suited to hogs,
sheep, and poultry also.
Chemical analysis shows an average
of about 2 5 per cent protein in mature plants, and of 20 percent in the
dry substance. The percentage of digestible protein is reckoned as over
11 per cent of the dry matter which
indicates, in view of the yield obtained, the high value of kale as a
forage crop.
Considerable variation exists, however, in the type of individual plants.
Some are more susceptible to frost
than others, and bir differences in
yield per acre and the protein content
are also found. The experience of
growers in the Willamette valley is
that plants with narrow leaves, grow
ing low down on the stalk, yield more
and are lens liable to injury from
freezing than those with stalks bare
for a greater space above the ground,
and advise (he selection of the former
type for seed production. Kale, like
rape, is biennial in character, producing seeil only when it has attained ils
second year's growth. It is wise, in
the spring before seeding! to remove
the plants selected to some isolated
place to prevent cross feroilisation by
closely related kale plants either wild
or cultivated, and consequent deteri-
oratiun in yield and feeding value.
•Soil.— Kale will grow in any soil
of normal fertility, but it does best on
deep, warm, well drained soils such
as sandy loams. Thorough tillage is
essential, and a generous application
of manure to unjst soils profitably ih
creases the yield. This plant is a rank
feeder, and removes considerable
potash and phosphoric acid from the
land, making it imperative that a sufficiency of these be present in available form. The effects of nitrogenous
fertilizers are jery beneficial
places where a fair summer rainfall
occurs, should be shallow and performed early. In general, thorough
and repeated cultivation and harrowing at this season will be sullieient to
bring the land into suitable physical
condition, conserve the moisture, and
detroy weeds.
Sowing the Seed and Transplanting.
—The month of April with the fore
part of Mav appears a suitable time
far sowing kale in British Columhia
The seed should be sown in drills or
in flat beds on well prepared, well
drained soil. One pound of seed will
furnish more than enough plants for
one acre. Keep the patch clean, and
stir the soil around to prevent evaporation and to promote growth.
The eailier the plants are ready for
transplanting the better, for if this
operation occurs much later than June
the crop may be held back by drought
during the succeeding months. Remove the plants from the original
drills carefully, leaving those not re
quired at this time sufficient room for
growth. Make provision for replacing
plants that do not survive transplanting. A plan followed with good success when transplanting cabbage is to
prepare pails half full of a sloppy
mixture of manure and muck,in which
the roots of the young plants are
placed when taken from the seed bed,
remaining there until set out in the
field. The plants at this time should
be about 8 or 10 inches high.
Where only a small acreage is to be
considered, the transplanting can be
done by marking the rows and using a
spade. Thrust the spade deeply into
the ground, push to one side, insert
the kale root, and allow the mellow
surface soil lo close in while withdrawing the spade. Firm around the
plant with the foot. If the land is dry
the addition of water is beneficial.
Transplanting of larger quantities of
plants mav bo done by ploughing,!hen
placing the young plants three feet
apart in furrow** the same distance
away fiom each other. Hulling, after
trahsplanting in this manner, is recommended to make the soil firm and
After transplanting, cultivate frequently, while the size of the plants
permits.        ,
Feeding.—Feeding may commence
in October, though kale will continue
to grow till the winter comes on. If
the growth has been forced, it may be
fed earlier than October, and the practice is adopted by some of stripping
the lower leaves in the early part of
the feeding season. This prevents lost
by feeding the whole plant before it
has attained full growih. It stands
in the field until required, when the
stalk is cut oil' nt the ground. Enough
may be hauled in at a time to last
four or five days, but it should not be
thrown into heaps and allowed to heat.
Oo not feed wet or frozen kale.
Thirty or 33 pounds of kale may be
fed a cow milking. This, in combination with hay of good quality, clover,
alfalfa, or vetch and oats will assist
materially in keeping down the
amount of grain necessary to the ration.
The famous Jersey cow "Adelaide
of Beeohlands" gave during two separate months, while un tost, the following amounts:
1,228.401b. milk, 70.37 lb. fat;

Where Now Slara Come From.
An astronomer tells us how new
stars come about. Suns fall towards
each other and gel up speed for hundreds of years, and then there Is a
nasty Jar. Heat Is generated by Ihe
collision, and a new star Is born.
Professor Dlckerton believes tliat the
nppenranco of Nova Persel, which is

The celebrated Dr. Abernclhy ol .London wu firmly or the opinion lhat disorders of lbe stomach were the moat prolific source of human ailments ia general. A
recent medical writer says: "ovary feeling, emotion aad election reporta st the
stomaoh (through Ihe system of nerves) aad Ihe stomaoh Is elected aooordingly.!
It is the vital center of the body ****." He continues, " 10 we may be
said lo live (tkrittgli) the stomach." He Iocs on to show lhat the stomach is'
the vital center of the body. For Weak stomachs nd Iha oonsequent indigestion
or dyspepsia, aod the multitude oi various diseases whioh result therefrom, ao'
medicine ou be better suited as a curative agent than

" Several months ago I suffered from a seven pain right
under the breast-bone?' writes Mas. O. M. Muaura, of,
Corona, Calif. "Had suffered from It, off and on, for several years. I also suffered from heart-bum, did not know]
what wu the matter with me. I tried several medicine*
but the; did me no good. Finally, I wu told it wu my,
liver. I did not dure to eat u lt made me worse.. When*
ever I swallowed anything It seemed that I would faint—lu
hurt so. I grew very thin and weak from not eating.. Wu
told to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. I took;
five bottles of It, and could feel myself getting better from,
the flrst dose. I could eat a little without pain and grew

Cuticura Soap?
•'There is nothing the matter
with my skin, and I thought
Cuticura Soap toa only for skin
troubles." True, it is tor skin
troubles, but its great mission is
to prevent skin troubles. For
more than ft generation its delicate emollient "and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advantages of the best of toilet soaps.
It is also invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, tbe hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
While its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
toawafer, often outlasting several
cakes of other soap, and making
its use, in practice, most economical. Cuticura Soap is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but the truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. 7M,
Boston, U. S. A., for a liberal sample cake, together with a thirty-two
page book on the skin and hair.

Amirault's Hill, Yarmouth Co.. N.S.
—(Special.) "Four boxes of Dodd's
Kidney Pills made a new woman of
me." Those are the words ot Mrs.
Elle Amlrault of this place. They are
words that have been used again and
again by women Iu all parts of Canada who have suffered, and who have
found relict and euro in Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I suffered for over a year from
kidney disease," "Mrs. Amlrault continues. "Nothing I tried helped me.
At last some one told me to try Dodd's
Kidney Pills. Before I had finished
the first box I felt better. Four boxes
made a new woman of me."
No remedy ever given to the public
has brought health and happiness Into the lives of so many women as
Dodd's Kidney I'ills. This Is because
nine-tenths of the ills to which women are subject come from dlsna-wl
kidneys. No woman who uses Dldd's
Kidney Pills can have diseased kidneys.   They always cure the kidneys.

Victims Can Cure Themselves With
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
With the coming of March people
who are afflicted with rheumatism
begin to bave unpleasant reminders
of their trouble. The weather is
changeable—balmy and springlike one
day, raw, cold and piercing the next.
It Is such sudden changes of weather
tliat Bets the pangs and tortures of
rheumatism, lumbago and sciatica
going. But It must be borne in mind
that although weather conditions
start the pains, the trouble is deeply rooted in tho blood and can only
be cured through the blood. All the
lotions and liniments in the world
can't cure rheumatism. Rubbing may
seem to ease the pain while you are
rubbing, but there its value ends.
Only through the blood can you cure
rheumatism. That'B why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have so many thousands of cures of this trouble to their
credit. The new,, rich blood which
they actually make drives out the
poisonous acid, and rheumatism is
vanquished. Here is an example. Mr.
W. C. Douglas, Wcbbwood, Ont., says:
"I was attacked with inflammatory
rheumatism, which spread through
my entire system. For two monthB
I was not able to go about, and seemed to be hovering between life and
death. My Joints were swollen and
my legs and arms twisted, until I expected that they would never return
to their normal shape. The doctor
seemed to help me, but not to cure
me, and I would be better one day
and worse the next. At this time a
friend strongly urged me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and I got a dozen
boxes. Soon after beginning the
pills there was a change for the better, and I continued using the pills
until I was quite well again. The
swelling-disappeared from the Joints.
My limbs returned tn the natural
shape and,I feel as if Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have saved me from being
a rheumatic cripple. I hope my experience may prove a blessing to
some other sufferer."
It you suffer from rheumatism, or
any other disease ot the blood, begin
to cure yourself to-day with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Sold hy all medicine dealers or by mail at 50 cents a
box or nix boxes for $2.50 from The
Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

The uproarious enthusiasm at the
baseball game at the fair ground.) a
couple of Sundays ago started n
mild controversial war this week
regarding the authority of the pro
vinciul police to prevent a recurrence
of exhibitions of this nature. The
provincial policeman in tbit* city
has stated tbat he intends lo stop
Sunday baseball games in future,
und that he believes public opinion
will uphold him in this course. The
member for Orand Forks riding,
however, is reported to have expressed the opinion tbat before the
police can take tbis step, the consent
of Attorney-General BowBer to enforce the law will first bave to be
obtained. The citizens would prob
ably like to know to what extent
Mr. liowsei's rule is absolute in tbis
An improvement iB contemplated
in ibis city which will probably depend on public opinion whether ii
is carried out or not. Mr. Traun
Wtlser, of Yale, proposes to move
the Itiden block to the foundation
Ity the side of the Y'ule hotel, raise
the latter building to street grade,
remodel both structures into u lirst-
clnss commercial hotel of fifty
rooms, and lay cement sidewulks on
both Bridge and First streets. To
carry out tbis work would entail an
expenditure of between 88,000 and
$10,000. Before the work can be
started, however, it will lirst be
necessary to ^rnend the fire-limits
bylaw, and it iB on this point that
the sentiment of the ratepayers is
required. The members of tbe
council are said to be in favor of the
scheme, but prefer to hear a free expression of public opinion before
taking action. The building would
be well isolated, and wben remodeled would not be as great a menace
from fire to tbe blocks in its yicini
ty as the present Y'ale hotel iB.

In each of these countries it has won

There is a spirit that pervadas the

and of great love. There is a virility,
a humor and a whimsicality that
makes for this drama a very fountain
of laughter and a well of tears, and
above all, there is a strong thread of
high purpose that knits the whole together in an indescribably attractive

Field Crop Competitions
The new basis of co-operation adopted by the minister of agriculture for
Canada, 'to support the provinces in
the work of conducting field crop
competitions, has made available to
the department of agriculture for
British Columbia subventions to the
extent of two-thirds of the moneys
actually awarded in cash prizes in accordance with approved regulations, in
competitions of fields of grain, potatoes, and other crops, to bo judged
from the standpoint of utility for seed
or fodder purposes. The British Columbia Dairymen's association has
provided a further sum of $500 to be
applied aa special prizes for such fodder crops   as thousand-headed   kale,
' corn, field roots, red clover, and alfalfa. The funds thus made available
ara to be administered under the di
rection of the British Columbia department of agriculture, whicli, in accordance with the basis of co operation
agreed to, is retailed to provide approximately one half of the total expenditure for prize and expert judges
and their necessary expenses
The object af these competitions is
. to stimulate interest in the production and use of good seed, the
growing of fodder crops suitable to
each farming section, tbe eradication
of weeds, and the application of good
cultural methods in farming. The
product of the farmer's skill in the
form of a 5 acre Held of grain or other
crop can nol beexhibiten in the show
ring, as can that of the stock bleeder.
To obtain similar benefits in field
agriculture it is therefore necessary,
and experience has shown that it it
desirable, to adopt a system whereby
competent judges may award prizes in
competitions in which the exibitt are
distributed over n   tlistriet.    For that

Ts the most delicate fabric in the
■world. You may cause it permanent
harm by using poisonous mineral ointments for the little rashes and eruptions that every baby suffers from
occasionally. Don't take any chances.
Use Zam-Buk, the baby's best balm.
Zam-Buk is made from fine herbal
extracts, and Is free from any harmful poisonous coloring matter. Like
the glasses and the flowers, nature
has colored It green. It is nature's
own healer!
Most ointments and salves have, as
their foundation, various animal oils
and fats. Zam-Buk does not contain
one atom of animal substance. Most
ointments and salves are too coarse
to bc absorbed by the tender delicate
skin of a baby, and remain on the
skin an Irritating mass. Just put a
little Zam-Buk on baby's skin, and see
how Boon It is absorbed, showing conclusively that the pores of the skin
nre greedy for it.
Use nothing but Zam-Buk for baby's
skin troubles and wash with Zam-
Buk Soap.
Zam-Buk should also be used for
cuts, burns, scalds, eczema, piles, ul
cers, etc. All druggists and stores
sell at 60c. bos, or post free from

Walker Theatre Winnipeg, April 8,
9,10. As every musician knows, such
a musical event is one which brings
about the greatest possible results In
an artistic way in any community,
and its effects are far-reaching, particularly In this Instance, as hundreds
of music lovers throughout the great
Canadian Northwest have taken advantage of this yearly feast of music
which has been offered them now for
several seasons through the energy
and enterprise of Manager C. P.
Walker, of the Walker Theatre, and
the Winnipeg Oratorio Society ot that
The Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra will be the principal feature
ot this year's festival as in other
years, and Justly so because lt stands
first and foremost ln tbe entire West
of this continent Even now lt is
about to invade New York, where
it will play at Carnegie Hall on March
18th, being the first symphony orchestra of the West to visit that great
musical center of thc new world.
Along with, tbe Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, and all under the
direction of that brilliant musician
and magnetic man, Emil Oberhoffer,
conductor ot the orchestra, will come
to Winnipeg the following eminent
vocal and instrumental soloists to
participate In the festival:
Lucille Tewksbury Stevenson, soprano; Genevieve Wheat, contralto;
Joseph Schencke, tenor; Horatio Couneil, baritone; Richard Czerwouky,
violinist; Willy Lamping, 'cellist; Sal-
vatorl Nlrella, clarinettist; Henry J.
Williams, harpist.
On Easter Monday afternoon 150
Winnipeg school children will be
heard, with full orchestral accompaniment, In nat'.nal and other patriotic
songs, for which they are now being
trained by Miss Pullar, Supervisor of
Music In the Public Schools.
The Winnipeg Oratorio Society will
sing several times during the Festival, but the greatest effort will be
Verdi's "Requiem," in which the visiting vocal soloists will assist.
There will be six concerts In all
during the three days, dally matinees,
commencing at three p.m., will be
Special arrangements have been
made whereby the delegates to the
big Teachers' Convention, which will
be held in Winnipeg during the days
of the Festival, may attend even the
afternoon concerts. This will be of
very great value to them In their
school work as they will hear great
artists interpret the works of the
masters, under the direction ot Emil
Oberhoffer. one of the foremost Symphony Orchestra leaders of the world.
Lovers of music who can be ln Winnipeg Easter week have Indeed a rare
treat ahead of them—a treat that will

How It Wat Delivered and
the Reply That Was
Brought Back
It was the winter that the American
patriots were dying like sheep at Vul
ley Forge. Washington's headquarters
were at Morristown, N. J.
One day-Captain Alexander Humll
ton went hurriedly Into bis office with
out stopping to knock. Washington
looked up at him, surprised at bis warn
of military deference. But hu soon
changed his expression.
' "The French nre coming to help us,
general!" said Hamilton.
The general sat thinking. A great
many matters hinged on this Informa
"Captain," he said at last, "our ene
tnles will strain every nerve to. win
their cause before our allies can reach
us. Of tbe different moves they will
make the one -I fear most Is attempts
to seduce our people by offering liberal
- terms for a surrender of our Independ
once. They will try to win over some
ef' our mast prominent patriots nol
only by aucb promises, but by offers of
money and position If they will use
their Influence to Induce our people to
submit to the king. Tbe place from
.which these offers will emlnate Is Phil
adelpblu. now occupied by General
Howe, surrounded by many sympa
tbetlc Tories. I shall send a message
to those ot our prominent men tbere
urging them to stand steadfast, and
.with this help of tbe French our ln
dependence will be achieved."
Wben toward evening the message
wai ready, Washington handed lt ta
his aid, saying:
"lt li too Important to trust to an
ordinary post rider. It muat be carried through the British lines Into Philadelphia."

That nlgbt Walter Janeway, a young
'officer of the Continental army, mounted on tbe beet borse that could be
found, started to make the distance of
eighty miles between Morristown and
Philadelphia In ai short a time ae pos-
slble. Be had nothing to fear for some
distance, for tbe region . roundabout

was dressed for the whole Journey, or,
rather, for hie entrance Into Philadelphia, and, since tbe city waa the borne
of tbe Quaker*, bad chosen tbelr costume,
Be rode all nlgbt and breakfasted at Trenton, which place waa more
than balf way to his destination and
'was aa far as bla borse could go on a
stretch. After resting and feeding tbe
animal he proceeded more leisurely,
fur be waa now on British and Tory
territory and bad a part to play.
At Trenton young Janeway crossed
tbe Delaware In the flatboat ferry of
tbe period and pursued bis way down
tbe rlgbt bank of the river tbrough
Pennsylvania. Midway between Trenton and Philadelphia, reaching a amall
Tillage, be itopped for dinner at a

"Whence come you, neighbor?" be
aaked of Janewny.
"From the College pf New Jersey

"And wbltber go you?"
"Homo lo my father's plantation In

many troops wltb blm?"
"I bave not been away from college,

Thee can Ond out by going there thyself."
"I tm not on tbat business. My object la to look ont for emissaries passing from the rebela to out camp with
communication! to prominent sympathisers In Philadelphia. To wblcb aide

"Bow can 1,-wbo believe that those
who uae the sword are sinners, belong

"Well, I shall return thli afternoon
and, io far aa onr paths lie together,

Jnnewsy accepted tbe offer, since he

suspicion. Od tbe way tbe trooper wbo
was garrulous bad much to tay about
tho number of communications be bad
Intercepted between tbe rebels of New
Tork and New Jersey and their fellow
rebels In Philadelphia. When tbey
reached tbe outskirts Of Philadelphia
Janeway told blm at a fork of the road
that he must bid blm gaodby, since tbe
way to bis home In Maryland lay to
tha southwest. The trooper asked why
be did not go Into Philadelphia, sleep
and go on from^bero In tho morning.
Janeway replied tbat he bad so many
relatives In Philadelphia that If one of
tbem beard be bad been there aod bad
not been to see blm It would give offense. The trooper nrged tbat, entering In the evening und going out early
In tbe morning, none of tbem would
know of his presence.
Then a hold plan entered Janeway's
bead. The trooper could gain blm an
easy access to the city, and, instead ot,
circling round to enter from the south
In order to get rid of the man, be decided to go In witb him. So he consented with apparent reluctance, Baying that ho bad Intended to accept tbe
hospitality for tbe night of aome farmer friend, whereas tn the city he must
be put to the expense of an inn.
When they reached the Biitlsb
guards they hailed the trooper: "Hello,
Connors!   Back again?"
"Yes; I've ended n long scout nad
have learned some things of tlie rebels.
I bave a youug collegian wltb ine, a fellow traveler."
"He'll have to see the officer of the
guard to gain admittance."
■'All rlgbt.  Call him."
The officer was called. Connors took
blm aside, and after a brief conversation Janeway wns suffered to ride In
wltb him.
"But how am I to get out lu the
morning?" be nsked.
"Oh, you'll have to see me about
that," replied the scout "General Howe
Is mighty particular about persons
leaving the city. They're liable to carry Information to the rebels."
So Janeway Inquired wbere bo could '
find bis friend, not tbat he desired hla I
assistance, but to keep his confidence.
Once bavlng got bis dispatch in the

having removed the dispatch from Its :

New Jersey wished to see btm.  Wben j
the two men were alone together Jane-1
way producd Washington's appeal for
the prominent patriots of Philadelphia
to atand fast for Independence.
At 8 o'clock In the morning a British
picket on the outskirts of the city
guarding tbe road to Trenton, bearing
a horse coming toward hit/, from the
rear, supposed that an Inspecting officer making Ibe rounds was about to
visit him. Be stood at attention, ready
to bring bis musket to a position ot

without stopping.

Tbe aentry bad no sooner tillered the

Janeway,  wbo knew he would be

flashed Into bis brain. Riding over
the bridge, his horse's hoofs resounded
on the boards.   But as soon as he bad
passed over it be turned the animal's

bo watted, clinching his horse's nostrils so aa to prevent a whinny, and
In a few mtnntes beard tbe din of

One of Edison's Triumphs'
A New York dispatch, dated May
4, says that Thomas A. Edison lias
accomplished the greatest triumph of
his career. He has perfected a
method of separating paying elements
of ores that will mean hundreds of
thousands of dollars a year in the productive wealth of the country.
The inventor is not at this time
prepared to give out the details of his
new method, but it is learned that a
plant that required #200,000 a year
to operate can be carried on by the
new Edison method for #50,000.
The object of this method is to do
away with the term "low grade" ore.
With the new system valuable metal
can be extracted from all ores. The
machinery is said to he so simple that
a child can operate it.
Those closely associated with the
inventor declare he believes nis new
invention is the most valuable he has
given to mankind.
Bank Swindle
The Port Alberni News is after the
scalp of the Dominion Stock and
Bond Corporation, of Vanoouver, of
which tfon. Price Ellison is the president, if the corporation's stationery is
genuine. The News flatly accuses
the coinpany of wilful misrepresentation in the sale of lands in the neigh-
horhood-of Port Alberni. Following
are some extracts from the current
issue of the paper:
"Altogether the Dominion Stock
and Bond Corporation's 'Alberni'
proposition is as rank a swindle as
was ever perpetrated iu this district.
"The corporation's folder says it is
'an investment tbut will have no
repetition.' lt is to be hoped that it
will not. But it would seem that the
bost way to stop repetitions of suclt
opportunities would be to put some of
tlie people who offer -them where they
ought to be—in jail,
"L. L. Matthews, of Greenwood,
who represents the alleged swindlers
in that city, arrived in Alberni ou
Friday last, and spent u few days
looking over the property he hnd been
'*'1 had my doubts abuut it and
came to see,'said Mr. Matthews to
the Port Alberni News. 'I now mean
tn take action to compel the Dominion
Stuck and lionil Corporation to refund all money they have obtained
through my agency. The sale is a
swindle, and hat been conducted oil
outrageous misrepresentations, I have
nothing more to do with it, and em
phutioally denounce it' "
Leslie's Weekly complains because
it took only three hours to put appro
