Here is what-the United States
Department of Agriculture has to
say about certain so-called sex indicators in a report recently published in the form of an official
bulletin:
Spring Irrigation Work
'-One of the most recent -marvels-
brought ' to the attention of the
public was the sex detector which,
bo tbe manufacturer claimed, would
indicate unfailingly the sex of the
bird that would be hatched from
an egg or whether the egg or not
was fertile. By its use poultry
raisers were promised approximately 100 per cent hatches and as
high a percentage of females as
they desired,
"One of these instruments was
an elongated, tubular, plummet-
shaped device made of nickel-
plated iron and filled with a greenish mixture of calcium carbonate
and an aluminum salt and suspended by a fine thread. . When held
an inch above an egg containing a
male germ the stuffed tube was
said to swing back and forth like
the pendulum of a clock, but if the
egg were of the opposite sex the
bob would describle little. circles,
and in the case of an infertile egg
there would be no motion at all.
Another device consisted of a small
gilded, wooden ball having a cav-
itv filled with red lead and covered
by a small iron disk, the whole
suspended by a cord. The telltale
motions were claimed to be the reverse of those that indicated male
and female with the other instrument.
"At the suggestion of the Post
Office Department, the Bureau of
Chemistry of the United States
Department of Agriculture made
tests of several of these sex detectors, with the result that'all the
I manufacturers have now gone out
of" business; Tests of eggs and
other things by a number of persons
showed that all the instruments
were useless. No two persons got
the same results with the same
eggs, and eggs known to be infertile gave positive indications that
they would hatch both pullets and
cockerels."
The baseball grounds have
been put in first class shape.
The boys are out practising nearly every night and there, is the
makings of a much better, team
than that of last year, provided
thait they practice and practice
constantly.
King's Exporting Agency, of
Lethbridge, Alta., have rented
j the Hunter-Kendrlck brick block
on Main St. They will occupy
the building- as a warehouse : and
establish ;, a -wholesale liquet
agency. ..'Prosperous times asd

G. Summers and P. Nelson, a
mining engineer of Vancouver,
are looking over some mining
properties around Greenwood.
Peter Barker, a former em*
ployee in the silver refinery at
the Trail smelter, appeared before Magistrate Binns in Trail
last week, charged with the theft
of silver'slims- from" "the smelter.
Barker was found guilty and was
sentenced to a year at hard labor.
A splendid suggestion has been
made that ~s. day should be set
aside, at as early a date as possible, to be regarded as Arbor
Day, on which occasion every
citizen or ' every family should
plant a tree. Such a scheme
would do riiore towards beautifying a town than anything else
and would be well worth while.

Talmadge's ideal man in "Dangerous Business," until an Italia,n

It is declared to be the most delightful -picture; in .which Miss
Talmadge has appeared this
season.
Tbe amount of spring irrigation
work depends to a large extent on
the work done the   previous   fall.
Ditches  and   laterals  should   be
cleaned of sediment; and flumeB,
weirs, gateways,  and culverts  re-
' paired, so as to be ready when the
water is   turned  on.     Irrigation
will not take the place of cultivation, and as cultivation comes first
in the spring itinerary,   it should
be thorough.     If   there  are any
humps or depressions, these should
be smoothed out with the scraper
or float, or with both.   Time spent
in levelling land is   amply repaid
in the labor and time saved in irrigating, and the more even distribution of water, which results  in increased crops.   The more thorough
the cultivation tbe better the seed
bed, the   better  the germination,
the better the soil to  receive   the
irrigation water and tbe better the
crops.
When should water be applied?
This is a question to which a definite answer cannot he given, except
irrigation should commence before
the plant Bhows distress. Do not
irrigate if possible before the crop
|Jbas germinated, as in the early
spring the irrigation water is very
cold and will lower the soil temperature considerably, and^ retard and
in some cases materially affect
germination. Thrifty growth
Bhould characterize a crop
from start to finish. Even a small
degree of drought will induce some
plants to enter upon the~~maturing
process/and further irrigation may
start- an undesirable new growth
rather than promote the old. This
is seen many times in the distorted
tubers in a potato crop.
Many irrigators make an examination of the   soil   to determine
when to irrigate.     Some  soil  is
taken from a few inches belcw the
surface and pressed in the hand.
If when released the soil hold together and shows the finger marks,
it is not necessary, to irrigate-but
if it does not hold together it needs
irrigation.   The quantity of water
to apply at each irrigation is entirely a local problem depending upon
the crop, tie soil and the weather,
and will come to the irrigator with
experience.    Cultivated crops require less water than 7uncultivated
crops, as the loss from evaporation
oan be reduced by surface cultivation.   Alfalia, clover and pastures
require about twice as much water
as the cereals, and should be kept
moist    throughout    the    season.
Grains require the largest amount
of water at flowering time.
Cultivate if possible before and
after irrigating; beforehand to
make tbe soil more receptive, and
afterwsrds to form a mulch and
check evaporation. Do not put off
irrigating expecting it to rain, as
the light rainfall in Eastern British Columbia has but little effect on
the amount of irrigation . water required.

Hard Winter on Cattle
The battle of "Clean-up-Days"
was well carried out. The rain
on Wednesday . morning delayed
the advance for awhile, but finally all the objectives were taken
in oue grand assault. Now that
the smoke and hustle of the battle is over, Lt. CoL Lawn Rake,
who issued the battalion orders,
is well pleased with the result.
The work of consolidation is ��0-
ing on apace and after a few
skirmishes here and there by the
mopers-up and bombing squads
the enemy will be entirely cleaned
out of town.      .V

Evidence of the heavy toll,
which the severe winter just ending, has taken on cattle in .the
valley is evident to even the casual
traveller passing through on the
train. Numerous carcasses are to
be seen in the. shallows of the
river. The cause appears to be.
due partly to.disease arid partly to
shortage of fodder. "Cheaper to
let them die-; than to buy feed," is
the way some- ranchers; view, ifc',
owing to the slump in beef prices.

While the building of a 22.000
acre irrigation .project has given
the first impetus to the rapid
growth of Oliver, B.C., and while
the cultivation of the lands within
that project give assurance of continued and inereasingprpsperity.
for "the Oliver district, another resource may bring even greater immediate returns and add materially
to the activity of that town and
community. This other resource
is mining in the old Fairview
camp.
It has been known for some time
that the Guggenbeims have been
prospecting the ore bodies in the
Fairview district with diamond
drills. It is now reported, on
what is considered- reliable" authority, that the results ofthe drilling
last year proved highly satisfactory
and that tbe great Guggenheim interest have taken up their option
to purchase the properties that they
have been exploring.
This same authority is responsible for the further report that
fully 300 men will be working in
the mines of Fairview by fall.

week's  ago,   lion.   (.'.   A.   Dunning  delivered   several   addresses   before   public;
l.odies, and the Keynote of each address was the need for confidence and the
'uibsiantinl grounds which existed to justify such con fide nee.
i Ion. 'I. ','. Norris. Premier of Manitoba, in an address to lhe Credit Men's
Trust Associaiion early last mouth, laid emphasis on the same need, and on
the lieeesMty for iinretnii ting labor on the part of all citizens.
if any men in the West today are in a position to size up the weaknesses
oi Ihe present, situation: if tliere are any men who are confronted with heavier responsibilities and grealer ditlicullios and'problems than other men; if
there tire men who might whh reason feel a lack' of confidence in the future.
Il is those men who as heads of Governments have had to deal daily with
(lie scores of complaint!* and grievances arising out of tlie hard times of the
past j ear. If these men can look to the future with confidence, and are
willing io devote their best energies and all Iheir lime in bringing about that
heitcrment which is lo be had if it is gone afier iu the right, spirit, and in an
Intelligent, determined manner, then there'is no reason why others should be
lainf-hoarted or lukewarm in effort.
In his address to which reference has been made. Premier Norris made
an inipoit.ant point which is deserving of (the serious consideration of all

"About three years ago, she had a
bad attack of dyspepsia. I-Ier food
would lie like a lump of lead ia licr

was/, very weak and thin and got
worse as thc months went by. Finally her health broke down completely.
"But when she started on Tanlac,
the way shc picked up was astonishing. Now she has completely regained her strength, and is the. very picture o'f health. We both have the
greatest faith in Tanlac, and recommend it iVliencver wo,get a chance."

NEURALGIA AND SCIATICA
Caused   by   Starved   Nerves   Due   to
-..  Weak, Watery Blood
People think of neuralgia as a pain
in the head or lace, but neuralgia may
effect any nerve of the body. Different names are given to it when it affects certain nerves. Thus neuralgia
of the sciatic nerve is called sciatica,
but the character of the pain and the
nature- of the disease is the same,
and the remedy, to be effective.��� must
be the same. The pain otoneuralgia,
whether it takes the form of sciatica,
or whether it affects the face and
head, is '��� caused by starved nerves.
The blood, which normally carries
'nourishment to the nerves,- for some
reason no longer does so and the excruciating pain you feel is the cry of
the nerves for food. The reason
why the-blood Tails to properly n'our-'
ish the' nerves is usually because the
blood itself is weak and thin.
When you build up thc thin blood
witlv-Dr. Williams' Pink' Pills, you are
attacking neuralgia, sciatica, and kindred diseases at the root The value
of these pills in cases'of this kind is
shown by the experience of Miss Beu-
lali M. Pah-weather', Cumberland Bay,
N.S., who says: "A few years ago,
following an attack of measles, I was
left in a badly run down condition. I
was weak and very nervous,'and had
no appetite. A doctor was called in
and gave me medicine, but it. did not.
help me. My blood was thin and my
hands and my feet were always.cold.
Then to add to my misery I wiis attacked with neuralgia,-from which 1
suffered greatly. I was reduced to a
mere skeleton, and did not ,care
whether I lived or not. 1 was in this
deplorable conditions when I began
faking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. It
was some time before I could' notice
any benefit from the pills, but before
a halt a dozen boxes were used there
was no doubt- that they were helping
me. Then 1 got six more boxes, and
before they were' done, -" I. was once
more enjoying good "'health and am
now strong and healthy. . I shall always feel grateful for'what the pills
have done for ine, and urge all weak
people to give them a trial.".'        .    '��� -

ISAIAH'S REMEDY FOR A WORLD
AT STRIFE
Isaiah does not set forth merely an
ideal for a world at strife, but foretells what shall actually take place in
the latter days, which sliall put an
end to all earth's strife. In these
Scripture texts lie reveals the fact
that Jesus Christ shall come and establish His Kingdom and remove from
men's hearts the cause for strife.
I.. The Kingdom Established yisa. 2:
2-4).
By "mountain" in the Scriptures is
meant "kingdom" (Dan. 2:35; Rev.
13:1; 17:19-11).
1. Its position, (v. 2). It shall be in
a place of supremacy. it stands at
the head of all kingdoms. In fact
the kingdoms of this world shall then
become the kingdom of Christ (Itev.
11:15).
2. The restored nation the teacher
of the Gentiles (v. 3). Cod culled
Israel that He might make Ills name
known among other nations, Now
after many centuries bf apostasy and
rebellion the chosen nation comes
into its own. Cod's favor will be so
outstanding as to gain the attention
of the whole world and cause the people to come up to Jerusalem to hear
the law of God.
' 3. The divine judge (v. 4). The
problems of the nations of the world
shall be adjudicated by One who is
all-wise, and He-shall rebuke- many
people. . Because of this rebuke they
shall convert their implements o'f war
into implements of husbandry and
they shall learn war no more.
II. The King (Isa. 11:1-5).
1. Ills lineage (v. 1). He is of royal
stock, of the house of David. From
t.h'e fact that thc "branch" grows out
of David's roots, it is shown that Messiah shall come when lhe fortunes of
the nation are very low.
2. His qualifications (vv. 2-3a). Thc
Holy Spirit shall rest upon Him in
His completeness, qualil'iyng Him for
His work. "Wisdom and understanding refer mainly to the clearness of
intellectual and moral insight; counsel and might to the qualities which
give sound, practical direction and vigor to follow and carry through the decisions oT.practical wisdom; while the
knowledge and the fear of the Lord
define relation by its two parts of acquaintance with Clod founded on love
and reverential awe which prompts
to obedience.'' He shall have quick
understanding in ihe fear of the Lord
and His delight shall be to do God's
will. This has fulfillment in Jesus
Christ in whom are hid all lhe treasures; of wisdom and'knowledge (Col.
2:3)7    ' ---    " .    -     -,
3. Thc character of His reign (vv.
3b-5).'. (1) "Not judge after the sight
of his eyes." I-I is knowledge is perfect; his judgment- pierces through
the problems," even seeing the motive
which lies back of thc..act. ' (2) .'No'l..
reprove after.ihe hearing;of-the ear,"
The- word "reprove" means "decide."
Hi's-decisions, therefore,; wil! be on
the basis.of fact, not on hearsay. - He
cannot, be-deceived nor imposed upon.
He knows all things,- even from thc
beginning'.-, (u). "Willi righteousness
shall judge "the poor." - He wiil'mete

times now the poor suffer-because the
wealthy are able lo" bribe the ..iudge,
bitt wlicn Christ shall reign-as King
the poor.shall get justice. ..The poor.j
shall not .suffer in-justice, because he|
is poor nor escape, just ice "because "he
is "poor. -- (4) "Shall" reprove with

Handling Deadly Serpents
Th��  Strange  Power of Snake-Charmers in India
What is the mysterious power that
snake-charmers of India hold over
deadly serpents? Is it a power peculiar to certain natures, or a power
whicli could, under training, be perfected by anyone? if so, what training? And what or who is there in
Lhassa who teaches the., use of ibis
power?
These are some of the questions
asked by "A.K.," a contributor to
Cornhill Magazine, after describing
remarkable performances which lie, a
senior official in the Indian civil service, along with a senior commissioned
officer in the Imperial service and a
department head of one of the civil
departments of Government, witnessed.
Tlie writer had seen several exhibitions of Nawab Sahib's skill when the
latter had gone out into his garden
and gathered up corbras and deposited them iu a pot without the use of
any musical instrument. He simply
concentrated his gaze on the snake
and then picked it up and placed it
in the pot. Afterwards he drew the
poison fangs from the serpents and.
gave them to fakirs and beggars who
made a business of so-called snake-
charming. Nawab Sahib did not give
demonstrations for money and lie
practiced no flummery in capturing
wild snakes. "A. K." describes-the
modus operandi:���
"Thc Nawab stood, with right.elbow
and arm pressed against his side, his
right hand raised to his head, and one
of his Angers closing his right ear.
All���he required was an earthern
gharra, or pot, to carry the captured
snakes, and a cloth to tie over the
mouth of the pot when any snakes
were inside. He also carried a few
grains of rice iu his left hand. He
moved slowly along, his head bent
slightly forward, and now and then he
would hesitate, as if listening. My
Tricnd, myself, and a few privileged
servants followed a few paces behind,
talking, if at all, only in a whisper.
Suddenly, after a moment's hesitation,
he made a dart to one side and seized
the tail o'f a cobra lhat was wriggling
awtiy in the grass. This was duly
consigned lo the pot. Number one!
We had the compound to search, and
did not stop to extract fangs or to
lease the cobra and make it sit up
and expand its hood. Within fifteen
minutes we had five cobras in the pot.
Apart from the actual capture, it
takes some" skill to persuade an angry,
venomous snake, held aloft by the
tail, lo go into a dark pot! . Once the
head-is w'c-11 iuside-tlie pot., the rest
of the.snake seems to follow easily."
When ��� the parly, returned to the
bungalow the Nawab explained that
lie had some power of so disturbing
any.snake"withiu the -orbit of its'in-
Huence that it would come forlli and
be captured. The power, he claimed,
was projected through his .eyes. . As
a proof of- thei. latter statement the
Nawab. bent over the pot. containing
the writhiiyg-snake, and, looking fixedly at them.'putrrhis hand in,- mauling
the snakes about at his will. . First
he ..would lift thc head of,.one io- tlio
iop of the other.'- Someone spoke to
him and he looked up. At once his
anil secured to jerk and he cried out
iti pain. : "Ah, I am bitten."'.-' The

)
Fletcher's Castoria is strictly a remedy for Infants and Children.
Foods are specially prepared for babies. A baby's medicine
is even more essential for Baby. Remedies primarily prepared
for grown-ups are not interchangeable. It was the need of
a remedy for the common ailments of Infants and Children
that brought Castoria before the public after years of research,
and no claim has been made for it that its use for over 30
years has not proven.'
What is CASTORIA?
Castoria is a' harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric^
Drops and Soothing Syrups. It is pleasant. It contains
neither Opium, Morphine nor other narcotic substance. Its
age is its guarantee. For more than thirty years it has
been in constant use for the relief of Constipation, Flatulency,
Wind Colic and Diarrhoea; allaying Feverishncss arising
therefrom, and by regulating the Stomach and Bowels, aids
the assimilation of Food; giving healthy and natural sleep.

Return of the Horse
Great Revival in Popularity of the
Horse for Farm Work
In spite of the vast growth of mechanical traction, the last twelve
months have seen-a great revival in
the popularity of the. horse. Many
small farmers, and some by no means
small, are reverting to the horse in
preference to tractors, though on
large farms the tractor should always
win, if' handled carefully. Again,
many tradesmen having tried motor
vans, are going back to horse-drawn
vehicles, because they are less costly
and do not involve big bills for repairs.���London Sunday Pictorial.
Turning Trash Into Power
In Tokio, Japan, authorities are
planning to use trash and waste of

day, as fuel in large electric generating plants. ��� It is. believed that 6,000
kilowatts could be .obtained by tlie
use of this; fuel.   .

Club, so read what we have to say. 0 ���
We have two wells in and have our third well started.    Our stock today is worth $3.00 per
share, brokers are listing it at $1.50 to $2.35. . *
We are offering for new stockholders to join us and then investigate. Ten shares NOW for
$10.00,  not more than twenty shares to any one person or more than one hundred  sharesTto
any one family at this $1.00 per share price.
Join'as in this small way, then investigate our standing, or plans, etc., then, if you are satisfied, you can buy more stock at the prevailing price at that time." IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED, we will return your ten dollars on  demand, if you make demand within  thirty days from
the time you send us the $10.00,
IS THAT NOT FAIR ENOUGH?   COULD YOU ASK FOR MORE?
Our plans are to drill Ten Wells just as quick as money, labor and material can be assembled,
and we honestly expect our stock to sell from $100.00 to $1000.00 a share as soon as these plans
are carried out. "��
We are not a one well syndicate, but a thoroughly organized and going company, and expect
to not only drill hundreds of wells as has been done by the Standard Oil Company, Sinclair Oil
