Interesting News Letter
From Provincial Capitol
—Many More Drugs
Placed on Poison List
The eight Grand Forka Doukhobors brought to tbe Nelson jail last
Thursday to Berve thirty days for
refusing to give census information
and, in one case, obstructing a
mountie, on Saturday refused to
scrub out their cells in accordance
with prison routine, and are now on
balf rations, says a press dispatch
from Nelson.
One of the eight, who gives his
name as Sin Bosbi, or Son of God,
is on a hunger strike, not having
tasted food or drink since Saturday,
and Warden W. R. Jams bas isolated him from the others. The
hunger striker was one of sixteen
who did time here in 1918, and he
was also one of tbree here a year
later. He has also been in jail in
Regina, All but two of the prisoners
are 50 years of age and upward, aod
several of tbem were in tbe notorious parades in Saskatchewan many
years ago.
Full rations for a Doukhobor prisoner consist of three ounces of peanuts, one pound of rolled oats, two
ounces of onions, eight ounces of
potatoes, four ounces of prunes, one
pound of carrots, beets, or cabbage,
grated together, witb tbe exception
of the prunes, and eaten raw.

Victoria, June 30.— By using

Books broaden the vision of the farmer, in
crease his success,and give many pleasant hours
to his life. The farmer has to deal with more
phases of learning tlfan are found in any other
occupation.   A profound study of soils,  live
stock raising, rotation of crops, and marketing
deals with practically every science.   In fact,
the subject of agriculture is so vast that the
successful farmer is compelled to specialize in
grain, somo branch of live stock, or one of the
many phases of intensive farming. Being somewhat isolated the farmer is compelled to use
his own judgment. As he deals with nature in
all her aspects he should know something of;
the constructive effects of sunshine, rain, heat
and cold, and how to take advantage of them;
he should know of the destructive effects of
floods, bad seasons, insects, and how best to
overcome them. With maiiy years of practice
it is possible to learn these things, but they
are more readily learned from books in con
nection with the farm practices.

for less pipe, the master plumbers and working | HOW YOU CAN TELL
plumbers dislike them because they require
less labor charge. The anti-syphon traps are
said to cut the plumbing and ventilating cost
in any building almost in half. It appears ~*n
evidence that the association of manufacturers,
thc contractors and the labor unions are in an
agreement not to .permit their use in New
York. Any employing plumber who installs
one is liable to a tine of $5000, and for a second offense to expulsion from the plumbers'
association. Any union man who works ou
such a trap is fined $25 or $50 and, if he repeats the offense, is oxpelled from his union.
Campers, prospectors, surveyors, river
drivers and others who use the woods, cause
thousands of conflagrations in valuable timber
by dropping matches or pipe ashes or cigar
ettes in the dry duff, or leaving their camp
fires half extinguished. In dry weather the
floor of a forest is like the fuse of a powder
barrel. A moment's thoughtlessness may cost
a fortune. Let all Canadians who go into the
forest show that they are both good woodsmen
and good citizens by being careful with tire.
There is only one Aspirin, that marked
with the "llaycr Cross"—all other tablets arc only acid imitations.
Genuine "Bayer Tablets of Aspirin"
have been prescribed by physicians for
nineteen years and proved safe by mil-
,lion« for Pain, Headache, Neuralgia,
Colds, Rheumatism, Lumbago, Neuritis.
Handy lin boxes of 12 tablets—also
larger "Bayer" packages, can be had
at nny drug store.   Made in Canada,
Aspirin is the trade mark (registered
in Canada), of Bayer Manufacture of
Monoaceticacidester of Salicylicaoid.
j While it is well known that Aspirin
means Buyer manufacture, to assist the
public ugainst imitations, the Tablets of
Buyer Company, Ad., will be stamped
with their general trade mark, the
"Bayer Cross."

A recent report from the International Labor oflice gives some interesting details about
the compulsory labor law in Bulgaria. All
citizens are called upon to do assigned labor
for the state, the men for a year and the,
women for six months. Six hundred thousand
persons aue actually at work under the provisions of the law. They are employed in road
making, sanitary service, canal digging, street
paying, and the construction of schools, libraries and other public buildings. Apparently
thc term is not always worked out all at once,
but in longer or shorter periods according to
the needs of the government and the convenience of the worker. No classes of society
aro exempt from tlie obligation,
Agriculture being the basic industry of the
country, every advance in the development
of agricultural education is of national value.
Recently several provincial universities have
presented extension courses for the benefit of
farmers and others.   To this end  the educational authorities have cooperated with farm'
ers' organizations with highly encouraging re-
suits, ln the case of Manitoba a course of lcc
tures was given on rural economics &nd sociol
ogy, supplemented by special lectures on a va
riety of subjects appealing to other sections of
the cammunty. In Ontario also the University
of  Toronto   was induced to give   a similar
course.   A notewortny featuro of the course
was thc taking of students to thc stockyards,
i he abattoirs, and other places of a practical
illustrative value.   It is felt that the alliance
hus established between thc agricultural  industry and tliose engaged in educational work
"/ill tend to a better understanding of ot-onpniie
problems which affect the welfare of townand
country ulike.
Business conditions are due to a man's attitude toward life. Business conditions can be
changed for the better only as man's attitude
toward life changes. Business runs in cycles—
first a period of prosperity and then a period
of depression. When studying these business
changes, it was necessary to resort to certain
statistics. In endeavoring to ascertain wha(
causes the statistics it was found: That a period
of depression is the result of unrighteousness,
dishonesty, extravagance and inefficiency
which develop in the latter half of a period of
prosperity, and that a period of prosperity is
the reaction from the righteousness, industry,
integrity and thrift which develop in the latter
half of a period of depression. The meaning of
this is plain. It is not railroads, steamships or
actories which cuuse our prosperity; it is not
bank clearings, foreign trade or commodity
prioes which give us good business. All these
things are like the thermometer that register
the temperature of the room. Prosperity i§
based on those fundamental qualities of faith,
temperance, service and thrift.

Organizations like tho recently formed
'guilders' guild of England may be tho solution
if our housing problem. Thc guild originated
in a group of building laborers who were disgusted "with conditions that classify minutely
what ono workman must and must not do,
and what pay he must receive, The workmen
organized for service, made contracts and
went to putting up houses in workmanlike
fashion, carpenters, plasterers, plumbers,bricklayers and painters all helping one another
and getting thc job done at an immense saving
in cost, though they received good wages. The
old craft spirit dies hard.

Those traps greatly reduce the number of vent

have been going to school wearing
socks that leave their legs bare above

some of the parents, who intimated
that it was their business and not
that of the principal how their
daughters were clad when they attended sohool.
