HOTEL  The Gazette paid a' visit a  couple of  evenings  ago to   the site  of the  hew  darn   where  foreman   W. A.   McLean  had about forty husky men employed,  and the amount, of work  they have  accomplished in the past week proved  considerable of a surprise.   The dam  which is being constructed  about 200  feet below the mouth of Twenty Mile  and cutting diagonally across a strong  rapid in   the stream,-is going  to be a  most substantial structure.   Its length  will be 400 feet and the base  will be 14  feet or more in width.    Like the human tooth it will consist of a root, a body  and   a crown;   and as both   the root  and the body are to be firmly lodged  down among the boulders beneath the  river hoc to in to  a depth  of about 12  feet or more, of which  about five feet  will   be of solid re-inforced  concrete  the full width of the dam and  from  this body two huge prongs front and  rear extend downward like the roots  of an obstanite  molar,   and all of the  strongest kind of re-inforced concrete.  In clearing off the ground  for the  dam a lot of  timber and  brush  was  piled up, and in burnig this   off they  were taking advantage of Ihf flre to  biun.the grease off the old inch  wire  cable which has been cut up for- use in  the cement.  Some difficulty was experienced in  finding suitable sand and gravel in  quantity in the immediate vicinity,  but this was finally found just across  the river ou the opposite bank and a  strong temporary bridge has been  thrown across the stream to permit it  being teamed over.  Fortunately in the present low  stage of water the stream is confined  to a narrow deep channel against the  opposite bank and that has left fully  three fourths of the river bed dry.  This portion has been all excavated  and is ready for the cement, and as  soon as this portion of the foundation  has been completed the river will be  turned over it to permit foundation  to the completed irr the present channel in which the stream is now running.  'A carload of cement is expected today  hand and although the cement-mixer  which has been on order for some time  is not yet to hand they will go on  hand mixing until the machine comes.  The weather for the past week has  been of the finest and is still good, and  every minute is being utilized to its fullest extent. The engineer in Victoria  has been a bit slow in furnishing all  of the working plans and they have  been using the wires pretty freely to  keep him prodded up.  ���������WEDNESDAY NOON.  . The men have again been laid off on  the dam. The only reason that has  been given is a telegram from G. P.  .Tones to "discontinue work for the  present." The message came from Los  Angeles,  and all here are at a loss to  MAKING THE JOB LAST  A Laurier Commission Appointed in 1910  Not Yet Reported  The Ottawa "Evening Journal" says:  "Hon. T; W. Crothers has stopped  the salaries of Dr. J: W. Robertson,  chairman of the Technical Education  Commission, and Mr. J. G. Bcngough,  the secretary:  "The Min iste'r of Labor, under whose  control is this commission, holds the  view that the report of work done  should have been'completed and placed  in his hands long ago.  "He has made repeated efforts to  get ,this and so far has failed. The  commission was appointed in January,  1910, under the late Liberal administration, nerirly four years ago. They  were to gather information regarding  technical education in Canada, United  States and Europe.  "The work of gathering the information was completed in 1911, nearly  three years ago. All that remained to  be done was to frame the report for  the Minister of Labor-. Nearly three  years have gone by and the report is  not yet completed. Finding that his  efforts to get it are unavailing, Mr.  Crothers has adopted the drastic policy of cutting off the salaries, which  have been running on all this time."

WINKLER,     Proprietor. ������  One of the most interesting letters  recently received by the Dairy Oom-  missoner, Ottawa, is from a school  teacher in Alberta who asks for milk  record forms and literature on the  subject of Cow Testing, because���������now  listen: Some of the boys irr the school  are starting a contest in recording the  production of individual cows to last  one year.  This opens up a most promising  field for every school teacher and for  thousands of boys in our country  schools. Irr this we would be following somewhat slowly irr the wake of  schools in the United States and New  Zealand where the use of the Babcock  milk tester has been taught for some  time. In a dairy country like this,  we should be out blazing trails for  other teachers and boys to follow.  No better work could be taken up  by such lads, for any record work of  that kind must infallibly lead to better, vastly better-, conditions on dairy  farms. Probably these Alberta lads  will soons be excellent dairymen obtaining $75 or $100 per cow.  Needless to say the Dairy Division  will only be too ready to supply blank  forms and instructions in all such  cases.  Mr. J. J. Armstrong of Keremeos,  resident manager of the Keremeos  Land Co., was in towrr 611 Friday last  between trains. Mr. Armstrong likes  to get about the district as often as  possible to see the merchants who are  handling Keremeos fruit and garden  produce, and to know from them how  everything is turning out.  He believes, and lightly too, that  tbe Similkameen should use Similka-  produce exclusively-and whyshouldn't  they when there is no better to be had  anywhere? This claim for Similkameen fruit is amply borne out by the  success which has always attended it  when exhibited alongside the best at  outside exhibitions. Since the recent  exhibit of Similkameen fruit at Winnipeg- which was shipped a few weeks  ago from orchards at Keremeos and in  the lower valley, they hrive been in  receipt of congratulatory letters from  influential men in Winnipeg who  were pleasantly surprised at the character of the fruit;'sent'there from this  valley; and with the congratulations  was the pleasing assurance that henceforth these men knew where to obtain  their fruit samples.  > Mr. Armstrong strikes the correct'  note too, when he says that'the whole  valley should, get info the habit of  talking Shuilkameen and quit talking  Keremeos, Hedley and Princeton. The  Okanagan would not be so well known  on the outside today as it is if the  people living in it had kept on talking  the names of the various places in it,  and this fact in itself should,teach us  all the necessity of concentrating our  efforts irr advertising to reach some  common goal. To familiarize the outside public with the name Similkameen we should make them hear of  Similkameen cattle, Siinilkameen fruit,  Similkameen gold and Similkameen  coal and cement. We must all admit  that there has been far too much sectional boosting in the past, and the  papers must be honest enough to take  their fair share of the blame for it.  The past has been a very successful  season with the fruit-growers at Keremeos arid down through the lower  valley. The output has been better  marketed but there is still much to be  desired along that line, and the real  relief will not come until direct connection with the coast has been established by the putting through of the  V. V. & E. and Kettle Valley roads.  For Mr. Armstrong's company it has  indeed been a long weary wait for  through connection with the coast.  Not only have they had their own disappointment in that matter but they  have the added disappointment of  seeing others suffer loss of time anil  cash through the failure of the railway company to keep its promises.  Fenian Raid veterans seem to be  multiplyingas the years roll on. Fortv-  five years have passed since the invaders were repelled, and it has been  estimated that no, more than ten  thousand men took up arms in defence  of. Canada. Now over four thousand  veterans have been paid the sum of  one hundred dollars bv the Govern-  merit under the Bounty Act of a  couple of sessions ago. " There are 10,-  000 applications for the bounty still to  be passed ^ipon. The buik of these  will likely be rejected.  The greatest number of applications  in proportion to population comes  from Nova Scotia, where special commissioners have been appointed to  ookinto the numerous claims.  An effective way to stop that sort of  thievery would be for the Militia department to publish the names of ap  plicants in the local newspapers in all  regimental and company headquarters.  Those who are entitled to the bounty  would have no reason to consider such  a course a reflection upon them, but  the contrary. And those who are  brazenly trying to lie the thing  through will be exposed to the contempt they justly merit, for then the  public wi 11 be in a position to judge  every man's claim on its merits and  there will be survivors enough to know  whether unworthy claimants served  with them or not.  It is to the asinine vandalism of  General Herbert who in his tenure of  office destroyed the Fenian Raid records of the Militia Department that  the country owes its present inability  to settle the ..validity of each claim independent of any outside testimony.  MR. ASQUITH IS WAITING  Rumors of Split in   British  Cabinet  Home Rule Issue  on  "JARNDYCE VS. JARNDYCE"  Chief Justice Hunter Describes Litigation  in Hazic Prairie Case Scaudal  "This litigation \ over the Hatzic  Prarrie Company is getting to be a  scandal in the administration of justice in this province. J. have seen  statements in the press about it, and  one of my brother judges has already  commented on it. = Something has got  to be done to put a stop to it and find  out what is at the bottom of it all."  Thus commented Chief Justice Hunter, when an application came before  him in a suit brought by Harold Ken-  worthy against the Hatzic Prairie  Company, (in liquidation) to remove  the present liquidators and appoint  new liquidators.  Mr. Hamilton Read for the plaintiff  and Mr. E. V. Bodwell, K.C., for the  defendant company, both assured his  lordship that it was the other side  that was to blame and that each was  desirous of seeing an end to the litigation that has been in and out of the  courts of the province for the past  three years. His lordship ordered that  Messrs. Butter & Cliiene, liquidators,  furnish necessary affidavits and submit to cross-examination, as asked by  the plaintiff, but declined to make an  order as to costs.  "I propose, as a judge, to do all 1  can to put an end to any needless  litigation in this case. It is a scandal,  and counsel have got to keep their  clients down to the real issues in dispute. Let counsel take care, too, to  see that the bitterness of the litigants  does not creep into their dealings with  each other," admonished the judge at  the close of the case.  London, Nov. 25th. ��������� Premier As-'  quith's compromise offer to the opposition leaders on the Home Rule  Bill is being delayed, according to the  Daily Mail, by serious dissension within the cabinet regarding what solution  of the question shall be offered.  Mr. Winston Churchill, first lord of  the admiralty; Mr. David Lloyd-  George, chancellor of the exchequer ;  Sir Edward Grey, secretary for foreign affairs and Viscount Haldane,  lord high chancellor, the Daily Mail  says, favor- the exclusion of Ulster  from the bill, while Mr. Augustus Bir-  i-ell. chief secretary for- Ireland; Mr.  Reginald AicKenna, home secretary,  and Mr. Walter Runciinan, president  of the board of agriculture, belong,to  what may be called the fighting party,  which will resist the exclusion of Ulster, is willing to offer small conces- '  sions and is ready to impose Home  Rule on Ulster by force of arms.  "It need only be said," adds the  Daily Mail, "that the Ulster vohmteer  force now numbers 90,000 men, zealous to fanaticism, who are armed with  30,000 rifles, and are obtaining more  daily. Meanwhile Premier Asquith is  waiting for developments."  NEW PUBLICATIONS  The Port Moody and Yale, and Donald sheets of the series of four maps  covering the Dominion Railway Belt  in the province of Britisli^Columbia  are now available for distribution from  the Railway Lands Branch of the Department of the Interior at Ottawa.  This set of maps, the Kamloops and  Lytton and Sicamous sheets of which  were issued a short time ago, shows irr  a graphic way the land situation to a  very recent date and-the standing of  each quarter-section according to the  records of the Department at that  date.  ON LARGE SCALE  The sheets have been published on a  large scale, namely three miles to the  inch, and this, combined with the  comparatively simple system of coloring which has been adhered to in the  preparation of the map, 'makes it a  very interesting publication. .  SHOWSOTHER VALUAULEINl'ORMATlbN'  Irr addition to the information with  respect to disposition of land, etc., the  location and boundaries of all Dominion Forest Reserves, Timber Berths,.  Indian Reserves and Grazing Leases  are clearly shown, together with Post.  tOffice and Railway information.  COPIES FKEE OK CHARGE  Copies of the Port Moody and Yale  or the Donald sheet may now be obtained free of charge upon application  to F. C. C.

BACK   ABOUT DECEMBER 1st  MINING NOTES  Morris-Thompson & Co. of Phoenix  have booked orders for 37 cars to be  delived between now and the fisrt of  April next. They handle the Overland which is a very popular car in  the Boundary.  Granby has declared another dividend for the past quarter when $225,-  000 will be distributed.  The Hidden Creek properties are expected to be producing in January  next.  The B. C. Copper Company has resinned operations in Wellington Camp,  in the Boundary.  The B. C. Copper- Co. have installed  a concentrator at Boundary Falls to  reduce the ore of the Lone Star property before smelting. The Lone Star  is just across the international boundary south of Greenwood and the  Boundary Falls concentrator is just  three milesdistantfrorn the couipany's  srnelter at Greenwood.  Word received from Mr. G.P. Jones,  who went to attend  the  meeting of  tho Hedley Gold Mining Company's  directors,   was  to  the  effect  that  ho  was coming back by way of Los Angeles,  presumably accompanying Mr.  I.   L.  Merrill,   the   president,   whose  home   is   in   Los   Angeles   and   who  would  doubtless   be returning   there  after the meeting.     Mr-. Jones expected to come back  by way of Victoria  and the. date upon which he expected  to be  there would make it impossible  for him   to be  back  here  before  the  first of December,  and it will  in   all  probability   be a few days later than  that.     Not to delay the  work here he  wired instructions to close   contract  for material,  and everything is going  forward as rapidly as circumstances  will permit.  Tire Ledge says that everything  points to a great mining revival in  Greenwood.  The new owners of the Sally mine  on the West Fork of Kettle River at  Beaverdell are shipping a ton of low  grade ore to Denver, Colorado, to determine the best method of concentrating treatment which should be followed. It is believed that a saving of  $11 a ton may be made by concentrating before shipping.

We'must not  forget that even long before the. Norman conquest, Saxon England bad its  .Witeiv.igeni'it.'- But old as is the principle in Britain of-calling in tlie people  to share in the responsibilities of government, it seems to lhe self-governing possessions of the British crown in  which Earl Grey has done. Nevei t he-  less he is restive when he sees the calamity impending and he cannot keep  quiet; but instead of denouncing the  -Home .Rule Bill- of the Liberals as  wrong, be is writing to the London  papers and giving the people over  there the benefit of his ripe experience  in elaborating for them a scheme for  federal government which will give  li eland two local parliaments, each  distinct from the other and administering tbe affairs of a territory of its  own: Scotland two; Wales one, and  England as many as she may require.  The customs, the post oHice, the army  and navy, the judiciary and other  matter--- of imperial import he would  vest in the federal parliament as  we do in Canada: and education, local  taxation, local improvements and  other like matters that are of themselves subordinated to the imperial  idea would be handled by thu local  parliaments, for the different provinces, instead of having the Imperial  parliament as at present wasting its  time and substance upon trivial affairs  that are not even piovincial but  parochial.  That would appear to be really the  solution of the Homo Rule, difficulty  at present threatening the very integrity of the Empire itself; and it is  strange indeed that ministers of the  British Imperial parliament with the  precedent before thcin of Canada's  constitution whicn has been tried out  foi- a period of almost half a century  imdi:r ciK-unistances theiniistdivc-r.se  and.found adequate lo meet, the needs  of an expansion almost unparalleled in  the world's history, should have failed  so miserably to grasp the plain meaning of the object lesson. 11 is disappointing to say the least.  The first parliament after the ''Mise  of Lewca" which was the outcome of  Simon de .Montfort'!? ..agitation for  popular'government,' has been known  in history as "The Mad Parliament",  although one historian, after viewing  its acts, has been forced to admit that  "ft would have been well for England  if all parliaments had been equally  sane." And certainly it would be well  for Britain   to-day if the  present gov-  MIN1NG  NOTES  The ��������� Gr-inby began prospecting hist  week by diamond drill in Copper  ('amp. They control or own 13 claims  in that camp and the Ledge says ".hat  if the piospecling meets expectations  the Granby will build a smelter at  Greenwood.  Names of mineral claims often turn  out misnomers. The Lucky Jim zinc  mine over in-the. Sloean may be lucky  but is apparently not happy. Of its  affairs the Sloean Record says: "We  are in receipt of news from Victoria  that at the. extraordinary general  meeting of the Lucky Jim Zinc Mine*-,  held on the'17th inst., the proposition  to assess the. shares was not passed,  owing to the necessary two-thirds of  the shares not being represented .at  the meeting. One of two courses must  follow the apathy of the shareholders :  Either the creditors will take over the  property or Mr. G. Weaver Loper will  be given a free band in'his iiond issue  scheme to raise $150,000 In either  case there is not a very promising outlook for the Lucky Jim and the holder  of shares in it. In case the bond issue  should be successful, fully a million  dollars worth of ore would Have to be  mined to keep up development and  pay off the bonded indebtedness, possibly two or three million dollars  worth. The Lucky Jim shareholders  appear to be "between the devil and  the- deep sea", and they would probably be money in pocket were they to  abandon the property and give some  mining man a. chance."

Dalton, Manager  A week' agf), to-day Sir Wilfrid  Laurier celebrated his seventy-second  birthday.  Premier Borden has been greatly  benefitted by his stay at the hot  springs in Virginia.  other  climes   that the   nuither hersel  ,        , .1, i   i.     i mm-   i eminent  had paid a little more atten  has   been the  slowest to   learn.    J Ins '  conclusion   is forced   upon all   who at  tempt to follow the public questions  that agitate the electors in the British  Isles, and particularly so when effort  is made'to'get a. reasonably clear understanding of the measures put forward by the Lloyd-Georges and the  Asquitbs to remedy the ills that are  declared to exist. Even those in this  country who are of the same political  leanings as the governing party in  Britain -.ire in despair at the obtuse-*  ness of the men who allowed Redmond  to get them into the jack-pot which  he!appears to have done in connection  with the measure for Home Rule in  Ireland. That measure they caused  to he. railroaded through the British  House of Commons by'means of the  closure without giving the opposition  a reasonable, opportunity to discuss  the worst features of the Bill or bring  forward amendments that would have  mitigated to some degree the evils  which must inevitably follow the folty  of so heinous an outrage against the  principle of federalism as that of giving to Ireland the control of her own  customs.  Where can   we find two  more dyed-  in-the-wool Liberals than Earl Grey or  W. S.   Fielding,   although the former  was remarkably  successful in  disguising  it during   the entire  course of his  vice-regal tenure of office in this country when he showed that he could rise  above party ? Nevertheless both these  men, schooled  in both the theory and  practice  of sane responsible .self-government along federal lines, are aghast  at some of  the provisions of the  As-  quith-Redniond measure.    The former  comes right out now and shows where  the bill is wrong,   but the latter is enveloped in too hard a shell of old-fashioned  Canadian Grittisrn  and   cannot  bring himself to the point of declaring  himself   in   the   unequivocal   manner  tion to the acts of the "Mad Parliament" and ulso those of other parliaments in more distant parts of the  empire before they framed the Irish  Home Rule. Bill which is forcing Ulster  into armed resistance and thereby  making rebels of the most loyal people  in the whole empire. A madder act  than that of handing over to the  Fenian nationalists the control of the  customs could not well be imagined  from "The Mad Parliament" or any  other. Mr. Fielding will do well to  keep up his propaganda but he has  rather hopeless .material to work on,  with men like Asquith, McKenna  Birrell and Redmond to convert.  John Oliver who announced a. few  years ago that he was out of politics  after his crushing defeat at the polls,  has been showing some signs of coining, to life again. Know-it-all John  has just written an open letter to Hon-  Price I-'llison telling him how he should  manage the matter of dealing with  tuberculosis in cattle. John had been  reading up the Dominion regulations  in that matter, but unfortunately hers a superficial reader and this time "a  little learning was a dangerous thing"  for him. The editor- of the News-Advertiser has taken him to task and  showen him that in his open letter- he  didn't know what he was talking  about. Auto-intoxication was an old  malady, with John and again he had  become intoxicated with the exuberance of his fAvn verbosity.  E. E. Burr  General   Blacksmith  Hedley, B. C.

Mrs. Waddle and children of Princeton are visiting her father and mother,  Mr. aud Mrs. Lyall.  Cattle have been going down the  river- eluring the past week to the  winter feeeling grounds in the lower-  valley.  W. A. McLean is making improvements in his residence to secure better-  light and more convenience. Mr.  Brass is doing the work.  ' B. W. Knowles went over to Pen  ticton with the Hedley Gold Mining  Company's car on company business  em Monday and returned on Tuesday  morning.  '"Mrs. G. P. Jones received a telegram' from her husband to meet him  in' Victoria on the 27th" and slie" left on  Tuesday accompanied by her son  Gorner.  The premises of the Bank of British  North "America have been getting a  , touch up during'the" past week when  the paper-hangers have been busy re  nov'ting and making the interior several shades brighter.  E. H. Williams, assayerfor the Hedley Gold Mining Co., expects to leave  for England about the beginning of  the week. He has been having trouble  with his eyes and will seek the aid of  a specialist before he returns.  Dr. McEwen has placed an order for  a Ford auto which he wants to have  delivered right away. it would come  ���������very handy for him' in connection  with the quarantine work he has on  hand from the Dominion government.  There is a very fair prospect that all  of the hi in bur for the flume may not  have to be shipped in from the outside,  but that we may see the manufacture  of lumber again carried on close by.  More regarding Lhis will be known a  little later.  Scarcity of lumber has delayed the  finishing of .tha-rinlc Mean.whil&.-the-  attention is centred on what the weather is going to do about providing a  sheet of ice, So far it has been too  mild to freeze the ground hard enough  to hold water.  Men have beerr coming in steadily  during the past week to work on the  ���������dam and there have been considerable  more than can be accommodated with  work at this stage of the operations.  Later on they may have a night shift  working as well and then a bigger  force can be employed.  The arc lamp at the bank corner-  was out of commission on' Sunday  night last and those who were wise  and elicl not feel disposed to take tiny  chances chose the road for it rather  than take the risk of going headlong  oil' the sidewalk. A cracked glass  which demolished the carbons iii short  order was the cause.  The mail clerks on the Spokane-  Oroville run are still at their work of  bungling tho despatch of Canadian  coast mail over the Great Northern.  If said mail clerks are new appointees  of the Democratic administration, and  are to be considered a fair sample of  Woodrow Wilson brand of civil servant the country has not benefited  much by the change. On Saturday  some of the Vancouver dailies (ailed  to show up and on Monday the Nelson  News turned up missing.  During the past I'ornight there have  been a fair percentage, of the days  that could qualify for Indian summer  of the genuine article. This is most  convenient for operations in putting  in the new dam on the Similkameen.  Tuesday, however, appeared to get a  bit too mild and the river rose about  two feet that day. Some snow up on  the head waters of the Similkameen  and Tulameen and the exceedingly  mild weather was doubtless the cause.  The Similkameen is a dangerous stream  in that respect about this trrrre of the  year- or earlier. ' Few who were here  seven years' ago will forget the sudden  rise- in the stream which wrought  havoc with the effects of the Hedley  Lumber Co.  Horses were sent over from Hedley  to Penticton on Monday to meet J. R.  Edmond  who was  expected  to reach  there with a drove of cattle which lie  had purchased in Alberta.     He has  there at this  time about" 175 heiicl and  has been experiencing some difficulty  in getting them'through".    Owing to a  few  berels  in' Alberta  being affected  with a skin elisease,   the   Department  of  Agriculture  irr   British   Columbia  with  an old cattle , man like the Hon.  iPrico Ellison at its head, requires that  all cattle entering  the province from  Alberta  be  dipped   within   ten   days  previous to their entry.    The Edmond  cattle  although clear- of  the   disease  were dipped,  and as tho ten elays had  elapsed before they were got over into  British Columbia  they had  to be dipped a'second time which permits every  hoof of them to qualify as a hard shell  .baptist.     Shipping of beef cattle into  tha Similkameen   valley to   feed the  miners in Hedley is indeed a new or-  iler of things.  r.  rnlWiJldBilifliiHilfl  Now is the time to procure your Christmas Fruits  while the selection is complete and the goods fresh.

There is every prospect, however, that the spring will  see important additions to some of the  existing hotels.

This looks to us' like  taking a chance, for the hist case that  was reported was one at Loomis on  the 12th of this month. So even this  case looks a^. if things are not altogether under control on the the other side  of tin; Boundary line. The quarantine  was taken oil' the home of Mr. Peter  Bromley.  The Keremeos cattle which have  been ranging on the Princeton ranges  the past summer, are now wending  their way down to tlie warmer climes.  About five hundred head have laneleel  at their respective homes, three hundred of which came back one day, or  i-athsr Iandeel back. The weather  around these parts has been so mild  that about five hunelred head are still  on the local ranges and dont seem as  if they want to hike for winter quarters for awhile.  The Sale of Work held in the Town  Hall last Friday the 21st by the Women's Institute, was a tine success in  every respect, everything being sold  by 0:80 p.m. During the sale tea, was  served by the ladies on the platform,  and the congeniality of the pee>ple  paesent made the evening -merry and  bright. Immediately after the different stalls had been solel out the gentlemen busieel themselves clearing the  floor. This was done in a twinkling,  anel before one realized it, all the  dancers were tripping the light fantastic. This coiitinueel until twelve-,  when tlie ladies showed utmost kinel-  ness by cutting up the cake, and  serving the coffee. After the refresh-  in tints the dance continued, with everyone enjoying themselves until the  small hours of the morning.  GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE  TO TIMOTHY GROWERS  A striking example eif the necessity  of improvment in the methods of  cleaning Timothy can be seen in the  following figures which aie published  by the Dominion Seed. Laboratory,  Calgary, where a number of samples  were tested, for meichants.  The samples in almost every case  were of exceptionally fine '-quality,  and had they been properly cleaned  would lank, among the first on the  market.  The suitability of many parts of Alberta anil British Columbia for growing Timothy for seed, is uneiuei.stion-  urhle. anel it is the: intention of the  Government, through the Seeel  Branch,...to. assist farmers in .their  methods of handling and marketing  their seeel.  Last ye-ar the Dominion Seed Laboratory at Calgary examines! :-J17 samples .of Timothy of which"155 were  receiveel from farmers, 185 of these  came from Alberta, 17 from British  Columbia, 9  from    Manitoba,   and   1  f. :  from the -United States.

Many of these weeel seeds coulel  be easily removeil from Timothy by  an 'ordinary fanning mill, fitted with  proper sieves.  Farmers having Timothy seeel are invited to senel samples to the Seeel Lab-  eiratory.
