As a Commercial Asset the
Crop is Steadily Increasing in Value
HY   I*.   (_.   1'Kl.NUll, 11 H.A.,   ASSISTANT
The potato crop aa a commercial as-
net is steadily increasing in value in
llritish Columbia. Up to a few years
, ago the production did not equal the
home demand, imports coining from
Ontario and the United Status. The
general quality and character of our
product have long been recognised,
and the recent victory whioh the
British Columbia carload attained in
the New York National Irrigation ax
position over 00 other competitors
from all parts of the United States
and Canada hai furnished striking
continuation of its superiority.
The Delta and bottom lands of the
lower mainlaud produce very large
yields of main crop potatoes, which
are consumed principally in tho local
coast market. The Ar.ha.r_.ft potato
has long been justly famed for iti pe
culiarly high quality, and other
Thompson Kiver Valley points, with
Asheroft, are steadily increasing their
output. Around Armstrong tha pro
dnction of early potatoes on tha uplands has been made an especial study,
while the river lands produce very
lai ge late crops. The early varieties
produce two to four tons per acre,
marketed at from $28 to $40 per ton;
late ones running eight to eleven tons
per acre, at $15 to 622 pir ton
Around Vernon, and esp.ciu.lly in the
Coldstream valley, the potato crop
will average about eight tons under
irrigation, of high quality. In tlie
Kelowna district both early and late
potatoes are grown, the latter produc
ing ahout eight tons, at selling prices
quoted above, ln the Graud Forks
district a large carload business is also
developing, potatoes yielding from
seven to nine tons under irrigation;
and four to live tolls under dry farm
ing met hade.
The potato market is one subject to
peculiar and unforeseen fluctuations.
Predictions as to crops and prices are
more difficult to make iu potatoes than
with any of tho main or staple food
crops. Generally speaking, tlie price
received per acre leaves a good margin
over the cost of production, but, this
is true more as an average of years
than us a certainty each year.
Certain factors are peculiarly essential to success with potatoes as a main
crop. The grower must stay with tha
game, year in and year out, so as to
mnke good on the itveiage. Itisessen
tal to secure varieties suitable to the
district, ami to the mnrket, and to
have a gofd strain of seed of that Variety, The grower must keep duwn
the cost of production by tha use of
machinery, and by intelligent management. The district must get into
the carload-shipping class, and be a
factor in the market every year.
As a side issue, the potato is on. of
the must profitable- inter-crops ill the
crclinid, nnd for traduction iu small
areas by tneu engaged ill fruit growing, poultry raising, and in general
farming. Under these conditions,
linancial success is dependent on well
selected sued of the most desirable variety, combined with careful and thorough preparation of tlie soil.
Soil.—Potatoes call be grown in a
great variety of soils if given proper
treatment, but good drainage is essential lo a good crop. The ideal soil for
paaia toe* appearns to bo u rich, deep,
liinli'o, warm sandy loam, well sup.
plied with decayed or decaying vegetable matter. The kind of soil to
some extent all'ects the quality of the
tubers. Those grown on sandy soil are
generally of better tablo quality than
those grown on a-lay soils. New soil ii
most desirable, and in it the tubers
are generally healthy. Potatoes require a large amount of moisture, thus
a soil which has the power of holding
a large amount of moisture will give
the hest results. Such a soil usually sulphite of potash The muriate of
contains plenty of humus. For early ', potash tends to form a waxy potato.

have been grown fair several seasons
farther north. This northern grown
seed seems to give better results for
early potatoes. 11 is a good plan to select your seed potatoes from plants
with good tubers and a large quantity
of them. Medium sized whole potatoes
often give best results for early pro
ductioil. For general planting, tlie
most economical sets are those cut
from medium sized potatoes, and each
set should have a large amount of
llesh and two or three eyes. The sets
should not be cut long before plant-
ihg, and it is generally advisable to
have a change of seed every three or
four yeara. To obtain the best results, it is very important to select
good aeed and to know where the seed
has bean raised.
For extra early production, sprout
ing potatoes is sometimes practised
For this purpose medium-sized potatoes are taken, greened, and placed in
Hats in a cellar with temperature of
40° to 45° F. Tubers not quite matured ara best. In the spring set the
potatoes, eye end up, in flats. Placo
them iu a light,warm place, anil allow
only one sprout to form on each tu
ber. This can be allowed to grow as
long as two inches. Cut oil the lower
end of the potato wheu planting, ami
be careful not to break tha sprout.
Preparation of the Soil.—Fall plowing is advisable for early potatoes because you can gat on the ground
earlier in the spring. For main erop
potatoes, spring plowing is probably
just us good us fall plowing, except in
case of heavy soils, Potato ground
should be well prepared before plant'
ing. The plowing uuder of barnyard
manure or clover will loosen the soil,
furnish plant food, and increase the
water holding capacity of the soil, lf
manure is put on in the spring, it
should he well rotted and thoroughly
mixed with the soil. Manure should
nut he put in the drills w.th the sets,
because manure in contact wilh tlie
the tubers induces scab. The soil
should be plowed deep and thoroughly
harrowed until well pulverized and
loosened. Unlike some crops which
succeed best when the soil is moderately firm when ready for seeding, the
potato succeeds best in soil which Is
Planting.—The time of planting, of
course, varies with different districts.
For very early production the potatoes should bo planted as soon as the
ground can be thoroughly worked in
the spring. If there is danger of
frost when the sprouts ar. just above
the ground, they can he protected by
plowing a little earth on top of them.
Main crop potatoes are usua'ly
planted during the mouth of May.
In ordinary practice, it is customary to plant potatoes so as to admit
of cultivation in one direction only,
the rows being spaced from .10 to 3t5
inches. The sets are dropped about 12
inches apart iu the rows.    Oidinarily,
Variety lo Grow.—Tho market requires a smooth, shallow-eyed potato
of fair size. Bor the main oVop,a white
potato usually sells better than a red.
Before ehoiifling a variety to grow, go
around ami visit your neighbors, and
find out which variety is doing the
hest in your particular locality. Very
few growers iu Hritish Columbia have
gone in for extra early production,
and in the interim of the panvince no
gaiod test, has been made with early
or late varieties to determine which
ara doing the best. Thus it ia impos
sihlefor us to recommend varieties for
different districts.
Some of tlie principal varieties
grown at present are:
In the InterW—Viok'a Extra
Early, Early Fortnne, Early Hose,
Early Ohio, Gold Coin, Money Maker.
Mortgage Lifter, Million hollar, hur-
hank, Einpirs .Stale, Carmen No 1,
White Wonder.
On the Coast—Sutton's Itelia-ice,
Empire Slate, American Wonder, tiu
ral New Yorker, for main crop Kx
tra Early Moonlight, Ear.y Puritan,
I'.arly King, for early.
On Vancouver island Kaleigh is
principally grown.
Irrigation.—Where irrigation is
practised, the waler should only he
applied when the condition of the
plants indicates that they are in ueed
of water, as by the darkening of v the
foliage. Care should be taken not to
wait until the ground is too dry, be
cause oue can seldom cover the whole
field in one day.
Potatoes planted the first of May
.fl.eldoin need water supplied before the
end of June or beginning of July. i)n
nut water after the middle of August,
so as to give plenty of time for ripening in dry earth. Cultivate us soon as
possible after each irrigation. Great
care In supplying irrigation water is
necessary for the bosl results both for
market potatoes and for seed stuck.
Cultivation and Weeding.—The
success of the potato crop depends
largely upon the kind of cultivation
given. No matter how well thu land
has been prepared and how carefully
the sots havo been planted, the crop
will be niucliTeduccd if the soil i* ullowed te become hard, the weeds to
grow, und the moisture lost which
could be saved. Cultivation should be
gin soon after planting, Tha common
drag harrow, or a weedar, can be run
over the ground three or four times,
or until the potato plant* are three or
four iuuhes high. From then on most
uf the cultivation is done with the
single horse cultivator, The firat time
th. cultivator is used the ground
should be cultivated fairly deep ami
as near the plants as possible without
injuring them, to loosen the soil for
the tubers. Later cultivations should
be shallow to prevent injury to the
roots and tubeis. The soil should be
cultivated every wuek or ten days,
depending on the weather.   If the soil

tubers will easily show signs of rot before ihey havo to he taken up on ac
count of frost Potatoes iu wet land
should he dug beforo tln.se in dry or
well drained soil, because there is a
greater tendency to rot.
Marketing.—Potatoes which have
been dug in an immature state should
be immediately placed upon the
market iu such quantities only as will
admit of immediate consumption. The
mature potatoes may be shipped in
the fall or held over until spring.
Growers should he very particular
about grading their potatoes before
marketing them All the fimall pota
toes should be picked out ami ted lo
the slock.
Storing—Potatoes are best stored
in a cool, well-ventilated cellar an- root
amuse which is perfectly dark, Too
aiiueh stiess caii not be put ou good
ventilation, lf thero ia not a good
system of ventilation in the cellar,
slats can be nailed a little apart about
five or six inches from the wa 1, A
temporary floor with cracks between
the boards can be put about six inches
before the permanent floor. This al
lows the air to circulate around und
through the pile. If the pile ia very
large, slatted ventilators can be placed
bere and there from top to bottom.
Potatoes should be kept at as low a
temperature as possible without free/,
ing, and at tho same time ke p the
surrounding air as dry as go.sib'e
I'iiey should he mature when harvest
ed, as skin-slip potatoes do not keep
well. *"
In some sections of Hritish Coluiu
bia potatoes are often pitted. This is
more often done in the drier parts ol
lhe province. Tha pit should he made
from six lo eight feet wide, about eight
nehes deep, and as long as lueicd.
The potatoes ure then plaesd iu the
pit about four feet deep and covered
wi^h enough straw to keep the earth
from coming through, and then about
one foot of earth ia placed on top of
this. Do not cover the top immediately. Leave a strip along the top for
a week or two for ventilation. If
there is danger of rain, this can be
uovered with sucking. When this
strip is covered leave a small hole for
ventilation evory eight or ten feet. In
the winter time, if there is danger of
very Cold weather, the pit can he covered with some strawy manure.
The value of potatoes for seed or for
eating is greatly lessened if they are
allowed to sprout.
Diseases.—The principal diseases of
the potato are the early and late
blight, rot, and potato scab. The two
former may he controlled hy spraying
with Bordeaux mixture throughout

At present the great powers arc In
favor of naval construct Ion and preparation. As Winston Churchill, First
Lord of the Admiralty, said In a
speech at Glasgow:
"Altogether there Is no doubt whatever that the nations of Europe are
nt the present time pressing forward nnd pressing each other for
ward into an avenue of almost indefinite naval expansion and expense"
Mr. Churchill need not have limited his observation to Europe, for
.lapan is reported to havo arranged
a comprehensive programme for Increasing her fleet and other nations,
Including some ot the South American
Republics, are planning for heavy increases in their armaments afloat.
As far as Europe is concerned all
this vast expenditure of money and
energy is based on fear that a great
conflict Is at hand. England's fear
lies in the direction of Germany. German apprehension is horn of the Morocco trouble of last yenr and applies
to both England and France.
Japan finds cause for dissatisfaction nnd worry In the knowledge that
her alliance with England is not to
apply whenever a nation with which
England hns an arbitration treaty incurs Japanese enmity. Further
ground for Japanese fears is found
in the virtual co-partnership existing
between Englnnd and Russia nnd the
disposition of Englnnd to give Russia
a pretty -free hand in Central Asia
and the Fnr East.
Russia wants Italy to lake means
lo end the war with Turkey on account of the agitation It hns cuused
In the Balkans. The control of the
Mediterranean is threatened, according to one widely accepted view, and
Austria and Italy are worried.
Twenty-live or thirty years ago the
only real navy in thc world wns England's. When naval construction became a passion with other greut
powers England kept ahead of them
under her consistent policy of hnvlng
her construction enunl lo that of her
two closest competitors in the increase of fleets.
Sonic of these other powers, notably
Germany, have made rapid strides toward perfection of sea strength, and
Englnnd has been concerned. Lately,
with tlie cost of government augmented to an alarming degree, England
lias found the burden of armaments a
bit too heavy for comfort, and there
has been u disposition to believe in
many quarters that if the thing could
lie done in a proper way it was time
to call a halt.
Recent events hnve indicated that
Englnnd will welcome some arrangement among tho powers for a limitation of naval armaments, But tbnt
she will go lo any extreme of expenditure to outbuild Germany or nny other
nation unless the present fever ot
construction Is reduced to normal was
made plain In Ml*. Churchill's Glasgow
Germany's original programme for
iho Immediate future contemplated
the constructed of eighteen Dreadnoughts and n Inrge number of smaller
this year's construction, hns not been
announced, nnd its scope will depend
on whnt other nations, und particularly Germany, Intend to do. To the
thirty British Dreadnoughts built or
building must be added two that are
nominally colonial.
The United States has six Dreadnoughts, with two more launched,
four under way and two additions to'
be laid down if the usual ratio of Increase is continued by Congress this
year, making a total of ten.
Russia hns no Dreadnoughts In
commission, but four have been
launched, three are under way and It
Is reported that four more are to be
authorized in 1912. Japan has two
ready, with two more launched and
five under way.

The water-power of Norway suitable for practical use all the year
round amounts to 4,000,000 horse power. In addition, 1,500,000 .horse power
can be counted on during three-quarters of the year. The country thus

Average price received for eggs during the month, 33 cents per dozen.
Pell temperature: Highest 63 degrees, lowest 81, average mean 47.08.
Ilain fell on sis days; frost was present on live inornllies] seven davs were
wil aoutsunshine. The weather during the month was the best experienced since the contest started. Brilliant sunshine was reported on every
dav, except the days already enumerated.
Blasting is still carried on, and is
sulli'jiently heavy to interfere very
seriously witli hatching operations of
nearby residents. Several nave reported total losses of several sittings
so far owing to the explosions. . i
The mouth just past, together with
next month, are the periods generally
recognised as those in which the
heaviest egg production occurs. This
fact, together with the favorable climatic conditions which prevailed, ae.
counts for the very creditable records
made during tlie mouth, in class 1,
pen I',) claims the distinction of being
tlie first pen in the contest to touch
or pass the century mark, On one occasion six eugs were laid in oie dav,
and on six days live eggs were laid
daily, and on six days four eggs were
produced dining each 24 hours,
Other pens deserving especial men
tion are | ens 4 (9(1), 22 (95), 12
(95), 14 (91), 6 (92',9 (9u), 6 (89),
11 (89-), 18(86), 17 (83), 16(82), 23
Tlie following pens produced six
eggs in one day: IU (twice), 17, 1, 7,
9, 4 (once each).
In this month's standing pen 19
goes up three places, pen 5 displaces
peu 10 for lifth position, pen 12 moves
up two notches, pen 18 ousts ).eu 6,
'ind pen 1 drops tivo [daces.
Pen 8 deserves special mention for
producing 75 eggs with only five pullets throughout the month.
The first case of broodiness among
class 1 occurred during the month, pen
iO furnishing a pulle'.
In class 2, the pens pn duciug the
largest nuniher of eggs were: l'en 32
(102), 29 (9(1), 38 (87), 39 (87),
and 28 (77). Pen 40 managed to
hold sixth place, but by the appear
ance of the pullets, their performances during the first tlnei or four
months seems to have coiupletelv exhausted their laying powers. The list
less manner in which they move alim t
indicates lack of constitution and stay
ing power.
Tlie following pens laid six eggs in
one day: 29, 32, 39 and 38. Broodiness was rcponsihlefor the following
birds' removal from the pen during
the month: Pens 25 (3 birds), 29 |
(4), 30(1). 31 (2), 35 (I), 36 (1),
All the runs were swept and  litter
cleaned nut during the month,    Bach
run   wus also partly, dug up.    (arten
food in the shape of clover, chick weed,
and dandelion is supplied   regularly,;
anal   much  relished   liy all the birds.
The fowls in   class 1   consume more:
green   fond   than   the   fowls in the j
heavy class.

Her Health Mutt Be Carefully Guarded At She Comes to
Every mother who calls to mind her
own girlhood knows how urgently her
daughter is likely to need help and
strength during the years between her
school days and womanhood. Then
lt In that growing girls droop, become fragile, bloodless and nervous.
Nature is calling for more nourishment than the blood can supply, and
signs of distress are plainly evident
in dull eyes, pallid cheeks, weak
and aching backs, a languid step, fits
of depression, nervousness and a dislike for proper food. These signs
mean anaemia—that is bloodlessness.
The watchful mother takes prompt
Bteps to give her girl thc new, rich
blood her weak system fci thirsting
for by giving her Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, because so many thousands of
feeble, anaemic, unhappy girls have
been transformed into robust women
through the rich, red blood these
pills actually make. No other medicine has ever succeeded like tliem,
nnd thousands of mothers have proven their worth. Tlie caso of Miss
Marguerite Boisclair, St. "Jerome,
Que., proves the truth of these statements. Miss Boisclair Is sixteen years
of age, and says that since thc age at
thirteen or fourteen sho had bee.*,
affllicted with extreme weakness, and
seemed to be going into a decline.
The least effort left her weak, and

,ON'T think that concrete can be used
only for building bridges, silos, walls
and walks; because if you do, you will
probably overlook all the places where you
can use it now.
T, L. Irving, of North Georgetown, Quebec,
used concrete for 81 different purposes on his
farm in 1911.
There are probably at least a dozen profitable uses for concrete on your farm at the present moment.
Perhaps you haven't thought of Concrete, except for a new barn, or ■
silo, or some other big improvement for which you aren't quite ready yet
That's why you should read
"What The Fanner Can Do With Concrete"
It will open your eyes to thc hundreds of uses that other formers Have
found for this material. In plain language, and with tho
aid of many photographs, It explains just what theae uses
arc, and how they can be applied to yonr farm.
Concrete can not only ibe used for all the purpotet to
which wood has been applied, hut also many othera for
' which wood would never be suitable.
It is not only a building material; It's; a "handy" material, something thut you'll grow to depend upon mora
and more, aB you learn Ita possibilities.

After some experience wltb all these

to make big, juicy stalks. All kinds of

are fine feed for cattle and bogs. A

however, that It pays to grow sorghum'
for fattening bogs to gntber In the

get the stalks broken down.
Of course sorghum Is a very one
sided feed and tbould not be made tbe
whole forage ration for any sort ol
young stock. It la very rich ln carbo
hydrates and low In protein and should
be fed wltb care to burses and prop

however. It must bave Just sucb a soli

table matter. On such a soil a yield of
fifteen or twenty tons to tbe acre Is
easily possible.

Profitable    Business    Derived
Then In Jamaica.
Certain sea fowls are regarded as
stupid, since they show no fear of
man, and for this reason seamen have
given them the name booby. These
birds are several of the smaller species of gannets. In the spring and
summer millions of these birds flock
to Morant Keys, three islets about 35
miles southeast, and to Pedro Keys,
four islets 40 to 60 miles. south of
Jamaica. Both ol these groups aro
leased for a term of seven years to
private individuals hy the colonial
Government of Jamaica.
Although eocostiuts hnve been planted and a few huts built, nn Pedro
Keys, the lessees derive t.ieir prnlits
almost wholly from the sale of the
immense number of ones laid by the
boobies on tlie islets of the two groups.
During 1911 three schooners-brought
38,t'00 dozen eggs from Morant Keys
and three other schooners 20,000 dozen
from Pedro Keys. The eggs are put
in boxes of 600 nnd 1,000, which nre
sold at ?3 lo $3.25 for a box of 500.
When a boat arrives in Jamaica with
booby eg.'S it is the occasion of no
little excitement among the negro women who buy them by lhe box and
then sell them retail chitfly in Kingston, though they are also sold in
Spanisli Town, Port Antonieo, Monte-
?;o Bay aud in other towns on the
Booby eggs are peddled, hard-boiled,
on the streets of Kingston, salt and

These eggs arc about two-thirds the
size of an ordinary hen's egg and nre
quite palatable.
Comedy In War.
Into the tragedy of war ate inserted
now und then bits of comedy nnd kindliness.
During lhe Zulu War in South Africa an overwhelming force of natives
was opposed to a little band of Eng-
lish sailors. From lhe Zulu host stepped forth a warrior laden with an
ancient firearm, which he calmly
mounted on u tripod in the open,
while the sailors looked un, admiring
his pluck, hut wondering much what
he proposed lo do. At last one jovial
tar suggested that their phttographs
were about to he taken, am! by common consent no shots were filed.
Having loaded his piooo with great
deliberation, the Zulu primed it, sighted it, and, leaning hard upon its
breach, ho fired. Tlie recoil knocked
him head over heels backward, while
a great roar went up Irom the de-
lighted sailors. He sat pp, looking
dazed, and then, the amusement over,
he, witli his countrymen, charged,
and were annihilated by a volley
from the steadily aimed pieces of tho
little band of bluejackets.
During one of the many battles waged hy the New Zealand Maoris against
the British settlers the latter ran out
of ammunition. At the moment when
death seemed Imminent a flag of Iruce
appeared from Ihe enemy's trenches,
and messengers came forward with a
supply of cartridges to enable the
white men to continue fighting.

It is quite a mistake to suppose that
kings and queens have neither lho
time nor the inclination to make pets
of birds and animals.
Queen Mary, to take but one instance, loves to sit witli a tabby cnt
purring on her lap. King George nf
Greece is seldom seen in public without a mongrel cur at his heels. The
Kaiser shows great partiality for a
pug, and the Queen of Belgium is
passionately fond ot horses.
The late Queen Victoria was devoted
to dogs, and almost wherever she went
a collie, named Roy, Spot, a fox-terrier, and a Pomeranian, called Marco,
accompanied her. For fifteen years
another member of our own royal
household had for her chief pet a
white cockatoo with a salmon-colored
crest, which objected to wearing feathers during summer, sud plucked out

"A.   II.   Barnett and   Miss   l.uth
Lilian Drury, both oi Midway, were
married in Greenwood last Monday."
When the item was written all the
facts iu lhe romance, comedy, or
tragedy had not heen made public.
Insteadlng of their home being in
Midway,   as   they   had   stated   in
Qreen wood, the couple came from
Conconniilly, Wash., and .lie marriage was tho result of an elopement.
The groom drivis the Conconnully-
Oroville singe, and lbe bride, who is
a   mere ehild  of fifteen years, and
consequently under marringeble age,
"dared" him  to  marry   her,    Mr.
Barnett   proved   game,   and   went
through with the game.   The   girl
boarded her future husband's stage.
They drove all  that  night, arriving
.in Oroville in  the morning jnst in
time  In cntch, the Great Northern
train for Midway.    At Midway they
secured a rig, drove over  to  Greenwood and were married.   While   all
these   events   were   transpiring the
parents of the bride despatched  the
officers of the law after lhe runaway
couple, and when they  returned  to
Ferry from Greenwood  the sheriff
of Ferry county took charge of the
groom.    Tbe penalty  for marrying
a girl under age in   Washington is
'  said to be six years in the  penitentiary, if the parents of the girl feel
inclined to prosecuted  the offender.
