collection  of  mineral samples exhibited was that from  Greenwood,
which contained samples from over
240* different  mines.    This collection attracted much attention, both
on account of the variety of samples and for the  variety and high
grade of the ores."    "Some of the
specimens - attracting    more  than
average attention  were:   A. large
sample from the Providence mine
at Greenwood,   that was plastered
with native silver; samples of high
grade silver- ore showing " native
silver, from the Waterloo mine, at
Lightning  Peak,  exhibited  by G.
A.   Rendell   and   his associates."

showed a shortage of water for
placer mining and the closing of
many stamp mills.

Mr. Washburn took his quid of
blackjack from his mouth and shied
it at the drooping ears of old Moll.
It stuck midway between, where it
stuck like a tenacious horsefly. With
a dexterous flourish of thc whip he
dislodged it, aud with a chuckle and
shake of his carroty mop, resumed:���
'* 'Course tliat was what 1 was wor-
kin' for. I'm a wonderful eater myself, an' I do lovc Ma's creamed
chicken: so when she lit in on mc
that there way, 1 was so tickled with
the manner I'd managed things that
1 had to gel busy bucklin' old Bess's
hamestraps together so's-ma wouldn't
see  me  griunin'.
"'1 doubt like sin if they'll appreciate it, ma, says J as 1 climbed into
the   democrat.
,; '.I can't help it if they don't,' shc
conies back at me; 'I'm goin' to do
my part, an' you bc goin' to do yours
which is to get them folks here on thc
tick of seven,' says  she."
Here M'r. Washburn consulted a
big, loud-ticking watch, and with a
muttered something sat up straight.
Simultaneously thc old team woke
up and broke into a shambling trot
that carried liic complaining vehicle
around another curve at a merry
clip, and therc swam into view the
settlement of Lookup.
Far back along die road the driver
had pointed it out to his visitors
from the pinnacle of a high hill, and
they had seen it nestling like a bed
of  white   daisies   in   the   heart   of   a
j with one bound he sprang free of the
rig, and before the girl could think,
shc found herself lifted iu a pair of
strong arms and deposited gently
upon the spongy sward before thc
cabin  door.
Shc laughed ancl shook herself like
! a spaniel who had been unexpectedly
treated to a ducking iri the water he
was born to lovc, and turned a flush-
i ed face towards her uncle, just in
time to sec that dignified gentleman
being treated in a like manner. As
he was placed gently beside her, hc
turned with a half-amazed, half-injured   expression   towards  her.
"God bless my soul," he muttered,
"Edna, dcav, it's like living in the
prehistoric days. I haven't been
lifted in this fashion since I used to
play with by brother Bill in the haymow on the .old home-farm. Gad!
I wish you would drop a hint to our
strong-armed friend there that I
can't stand thosc dip-the-dip stunts.
My old rag of a heart is fluttering
lust here therc emerged from thc
cabin a woman of matronly aspect
whose plump, bare arms were
smeared witli Hour and whose big,
good-natured face fairly beamed
with   welcome.
"Well, you little dear, you," shc
cried, planting a motherly kiss on
thc pink cheeks of thc girl, "I know
you're 'bout dead tired out, and like
as not hungry as a new-weaned calf.
Come along iu and get some supper;
"Ma," introduced Pa Washburn,
"this here is Mr. Dayton, who is the
young lady's uncle, and Mr. Dayton,
sir, this here is niy Missus, best
woman in Lookup, best cook in Ontario."
"How do, sir," beamed Mrs. Washburn, "Come along in, you and the

Boys and Girls to Secure
Rural Training
A man may never be too old to
learn, but youth is conceded to be
more teachable than thc person of
mature age. By providing suitable
instruction and training for thc young
men and women of thc farm,'more
lasting benefit will be conferred than
by seeking to make good thc deficiencies of the older generation. The
1918-19 report of the' agricultural
instruction act commissioner reviews thc work carried on during the
year by thc funds placed at the disposal of thc provinces for agricultural instruction by thc federal government. This bulletin is obtainable
from thc Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa. Thc
report indicates that about onc half
of thc total annual grant of $1,100,000
is applied to thc instruction of adolescents.
For the advancement in the direction of agricultural training in the
rural schools, thc grant is largely
accountable. Along with it havc been
developed nature study, school and
home gardening, boys' and girls' clnbs
in poultry, pig and calf rearing, canning, bread making and similar activities, culminating in thc annual school
fair. Practical projects of this kind
may easily bc madc the medium for.
training the intelligence, because they
arc seized upon with eagerness by
most boys  and girls.
In certain high schools agricultural and household science courses arc
bcing developed, and in more than
one province, special vocational
schools of agriculture have been
established and receive assistance
from the grant. In ^developments
such as these lies the hope for the
improvement of modern agriculture,
through thc rank and( file of the
rural population, to whom the centralized college of agriculture is not
available. The present day need is
that is should bc made easy for
country boys and girls to secure an
educational training of such a character as will fit them for country
life and rural pursuits. Colleges of
agriculture and veterinary colleges
havc not, however, been overlooked;
thcy also arc given liberal assistance.
Following the close of thc war, the
attendance at these institutions
shows a marked aud gratifying increase,'and thcir influence-in promoting the advancement o�� Canada's
leading" basic industry, "agriculture,
will continue to .make itself felt.

Varieties cf Grasses That Serve Useful Purposes in the West
Feeding thistles to horses was one
of the expedients adopted last winter by a number of farmers in the
vicinity of Moose Jaw, Mr. G. C.
Stewart, of that place, rather surprised thc dry farming delegates at the
Swift Current convention, by stating
lhat riot only did the Russian thistle
serve in the scarcity of other fodder
but that it had a rcal food value. He
himself iiad a bunclv of horses that
came through the winter in great
shape fed only on thc thistle, and
hc believed it had great possibilities
as a pasture crop. -Cattle, sheep and
iiogs liked thc thistle, and it undoubtedly had a nutritive value.
Mr. Stewart called attention to the
important part that pasture plays in
Saskatchewan farming operations and
expressed the opinion that it would
bc a still greater factor in the future.
Speaking of the grasses which could
bc best cultivated in.the southwest,
Mr. Stewart gave it as his opinion
that the perennial grasses, legumes
and cereal crops wcrc most suitable.
He thought that brome grass was
perhaps the most valuable of thc perennials, although a danger existed
in that in time the grass became root
bound. This was not such a danger
as it appeared at first sight because-
it was necessary in this district to
have a grass that could be worked into a rotation to give the fibre to prevent soil  drifting.
Among.the legumes, alfalfa, and
.sweet clover were .the most suitable,
ancl both could bc grown to good advantage in ' thc southwest.,. Cattle as
a- rule have to "a'cquirc a'.taste' vfof
sweet clover," but soon-get to'.like it.
The chief, advantage to-be. derived
from" growing this class of'fodder,
is that il not. only-provides a feed,
biit also ' enriches- thc  soil.
Speaking of the. cereals Mr. Stewart suggested- that fail rye offered
thc best "possibilities in the,southwest. All stock, will cat it-"as-a. pasture crop and sown early, in the
spring'it niakes'one of the best-crops.'
T One-of ihc professors-from the col:
lege ;it' Saskatoon recommended -the
crops that were suitable for food and
at the. same jimc-'.of'service in hold-j
ing the soil. Oats,- .western.'- rye, |
brome-. "grass" and .alfalfa and" sweet
.clover had.not proved hardy enough
for the-climate. The legumes, made
the best hay'for'growing-cattle and
dairy .cows especially for thp Matter-
tlicy.\vcrc.great'milk producers.. Oats
was justly entitled to -first, place: as' a
hay. crop in Saskatchewan. -'It. .was
a short crop, fell iri :casily., with' rota-:

knew how to. grow'.it.' He also^s'lrong-

Although   West   Offers   Unequalled
Advantage Few Sheep Are -
At the opening of Edmonton's summer exhibition, Dr. S. Fl Tolmic, minister of Agriculture, replied to an
address of welcome from the directors of the exhibition association and
officially 'declared the fair opened.
"The West can surely bc congratulated on having four such remarkable
exhibitions'as those of Edmonton,
Calgary, Regina and Brandon," declared Dr. Tolmic. Such exhibitions
were of particular interest to the Federal Department of Agriculture which
was keenly alive to the value of these
affairs. "Wc arc trying to popularize
the consumption of more mutton, as
well as encouraging sheep raising,"
declared Dr. Tolmic. "It is" rather appalling that we only raise 3,000,000
sheep here, whe'n in Australia tliey
raise 80,000,000, in thc United States
40,000,000 and in Great Britain 27,-
000,000. This- country offers almost
unequalled advantages for sheep raising, and there is scarcely a farm flock
anywhere but what could keep a
small flock. They arc not only useful for cleaning up fields, but use a
great deal of feed that is ordinarily
wasted." �����

Cultivation and Rainfall
Open Question as 'ro Whether Climate Changes as Settlement
. Proceeds
Not much comfort was given to
lhe settlers in thc dry dklricls^of
twe- west by Mr. F. Stapart, hcud of
the meteorological conference at
Swift Current a few days ago. With
a. full knowledge of the records of
rainfall for l!io pasl thirty years or
more, he couid not ngrco with the
statements frequently -..i.vJc'. that the
climate undergoes a change as settlement proceeds. In F'lroye and
Asia Avhere observations have been
made for centuries, there is no indication of any marked incr.'.ase or decrease in the supply of mc.istmv. The
United Statcs Weather Bureau'gives
similar testimony in regard to the
rainfall in Kansas, Nebraska and
other western stales. These conclusions arc in straight contradiction
with the views held by farmers, arid
generally accepted by well ;'h ������'���d
people. Any' number of elderly men
-with;'experience- of pioneer Iii-:- in
western or northern '. _ Oil tan O- will
testify ' that to their knowledge the
summer droughts are more' frequent
since -the forests were,removed,, and
that- late spring' frosts arc not so destructive-as in the- early . dyX Al-j
most, any sctl-kr whose =nieinory-. goes
back, to the sixties of last century
can fell, not only of potatoes, but of
fields of .grain being-.destroyed. No-
such ^severe frosts - have - .occurred
since tlie spring "of 1895.. In Manitoba "the climate has apparently moderated since thc early seventies, when
the Red River colonists struggled to
produce enough food to last over.the
winter. Between the professional
weather "men who have the figures to
prove, their-case; ��� and -the. fanners
whose memories cannot be much ai
fault, thcir is a conflict of evidence.

Every Part of Canada Will Benefit
From the Influx
Evcry part of Canada is.to benefit
by the influx of Imperial ex-soldiers
who are coming to the Dominion to
settle on farms under ^the ^special
scheme decided upon by the Imperial
and Dominion governments last "year.
Those aleady selected by the Dominion representatives, W. E. Scott, former deputy minister of agriculture,
British-Columbia, and Russell Wilson
of Saskatoon, will bring about a million dollars in cash, said Mr. Scott,
at Halifax from the Cunard liner
Caronia en route with Mr. Wilson to
Ottawa where they will make an official report.
Of the thousands of applicants
about 700 have been found suitable,
during the stay in England of Messrs.
Scott and/Wilson. They are not thc
professional army officers type of men
Mr.Scott said, but mostly .were civilians before thc war. Thcy are sound
and adaptable and come from York,
Nothumbcrland, Wales and Scotland,
the best agricultural sections of thc
Old Land, and Mr. Scott declares
thcy will adapt themselves to conditions here and makc ideal farm settlers and citizens.
That Canada should get as many
of this mass of settlers as possible is
Mr. Scott's opinion, as Australia and
New Zealand arc going to send agents
there this fall for the same kind of
men and will offer big inducements.
Thc two agents did not get a good
slice of bread since thd'y left Canada,
they declared, Britain and many other
parts of the world being short of
wheat. Therefore they say there will
be big prices for all the food produce
Canada can export for years to come.
Newspaper Costs Still Mounting
The cost of. the white paper on
which newspapcrs.arc printed mounts
steadily upward. The ^increased
price which went info force on July
1st represents an added expense for
Candiau publishers of not less than
the huge sum of eight million dollars. In December, 1916, the price of
newsprint was $36 a ton.- Early this
year it was $80. The new pricc is
$110 a ton���an increase of $74 over
the price prevailing up to 1916 ���
more than 205 percent. For the last
quarter of this year the pricc will
be $130 a ton, 261 percent ovcr the
cost price of .four years  ago,

Cox Is A Friend
Of Great Britain
Nominee for U.S. Presidency Declares Against Inflaming Anti-
British Feeling
While delivering an address at a
patriotic rally held in Massey Hall,
Toronto, under Empire Club auspices, on November 22, 1918.'Hon. J. M.
Cox, Governor of the state of. Ohio,
carried the audience' with liim when
he declared that the kaiser was a
criminal and should undergo trial as
a common murderer and assassin for
violation of international laws.' Mr.
Cox impressed his hearers by his eloquent "declaration of friendship towards Canada and Britain. He spoke-
eloquently in defence of good relations between America and Canada.
."We are proud of the fact," he said,
"that between us is the longest boundary line in the world unmarked by
the bayonet, untrammclcd by cannon,
���eloquent of thc fact that the brotherhood of man is born of emotions that
carry us. and. our moral outlook as
high as the heavens themselves. I
hope that any man in-the United
States of America who, in a spirit of
mischief, or in a demagogic spirit at-
temps to inflame our people and poison the minds of our children against
Britain, gets what .he deserves."

One Ton Per Acre, Benefits Com- or
Wheat Land
According-to experiments made at
the West Central Station at Morris,
Minnesota, farmers who.burn their
straw or allow the stacks to stand
for years in thc fields, are robbing
themselves. Applying straw directly
to the land has given good results in
Morris, as thc following ' statement
from Superintendent P. E. Miller
"In our 1919 station report, wc publish results of experiments conducted
the last four years. For a four-year
average, one ton of wheat straw plowed undeccach year gave an increase
of 6.2 bushels of corn to thc acre the
following year, while onc ton of corn
stover plowed under gave an average
increase of 1.5 bushels of-wheat each
year during the same period.        ���
"Heavier applications gave smaller
increases. Two tons of wheat straw
gave ari average of only 0.3 bushels of
corn, while two tons of corn stover
gave an average gain of only 0,4 bushels of wheat compared with the untreated land.
"This experiment was begun in
1916, and during the first two ycars
there wcrc no increases with wheat,
but, during the next two years, wheat
gave'an increase, each year with both
one-ton and two-ton stover applications, "Iri 1916 therc was no increase
with corn, .but in 1917 there was a
very'decided increase and in .both
1918 and 1919 there was a very decided increase from the one-ton applications. It seems apparent that the
cumulative effect, "especially with- an
application of. onc ton, is having beneficial influence-upon yields.
- "We arc coming to, the conclusion
that straw in amounts of one ton. per
acre can be applied with benefit upon
land which is-to bc used-for corn or
"wheat" The- rcsults~at_ this" station
seem to."indicate that it'will, take at
least two. applications before noticeable- increases in yield arc obtainable
Inasmuch as'only a small, part of-tlic
straw can be .'handled as a-litter, it.
would appear that spreading it direct

Dominion Bureau of Statistics Shows
Need of Co-Operation
Foreign farmers, i.e., those farming land outside Canada, found a
profitable market here in/ the last
twelve. months for over 143 1-3 million dollars' worth of their products.
Farmers and livestock breeders will
find the story told plainly and irrefutably in the following abstract from
the returns of the Dominion bureau
of statistics. It gives the imports of
live animals and of animal products
into Canada for the last three years
ending May 30th (000's omitted) for
1918, 1919, and  1920 respectively:
Animals living, $2,517, $1,871, $2,494.
Hides and skins, $7,885, $5,903, $25,-
Lard, $63,639, $2,682.
Leather, $9,640, $10,593, $18,059.
Meats, $17,807, $7,338, $20,220.
Wool, $33,715, $40,940, $74,259.
c Totals, $72,200, $67,504, $143,356.
Many of. these imports are offset by
our exports of the samc class. That
is, Canadian manufacturers import
much of their raw material from
abroad, and the Canadian farmers
have to export thc results of thcir
work to be raw material in other
countries'." The needless "criss-crossing" of products and the expense of
their transportation might be largely
eliminated .were, Canadian manufacturers and Canadian-..farmers to be
more closely linked together. Manufacturers might utilize more what the
Canadian farms, under the climatic
conditions, can best produce; farmers
might more definitely aim to produce
that for which manufacturers can the
best find la market.
A considerable part of the products
given above could have been produced in the Dominion and profitably
manufactured for Canadian consumers if industry and farming had been
more closely related during, the last
twenty ycars. ��� Thc���[ Industrial and

not bc boiled; they should bc cooked
below the boiling point for twenty te
thirty minutes, and will bc more digestible (the albumen is not hardened) and will peel more easily. However, the egg should be dipped in cold
water for a few minutes before removing the shell and this does away

Fatal Accident at

Men relate that Mrs. Newly wed
went to the grocery store to do her
morning marketing. And she was
determined that the grocer should
not take advantage of hor youth
and inexperience.
"These eggs are dreadfully
small," she criticized. .
"I know it," he answered,
"But that's the kind the farmer
brings me. They are just fresh
from the country this morning."
"Yes," said the bride, "and
that's the trouble with those farmers. They are so anxious to get
their eggs sold that they take them
off the nest too soon."

evening from injuries received,
when his Ford car was in collison
with the eastbound passenger train
at the C. P. R. crossing near the
G. 3ST. station.. Mrs. Barron and
sister were also riding in the aato
and they are suffering from shock
and minor injuries.
In, the impact tbe Ford and its
occupants were carried by the
locomotive a distance of about 75
feet to the bridge and' then hurling them over an embankment
into the Kettle river/ Deceased
fell out as. the car turned over,
alighting on a stone butment, and
was, injured eo seriously that he
died three hours after being rushed
to the hospital. The women undoubtedly owe their lives to having
been thrown " into the water
rather than on the embankment.
The late" Mr." Barron, was a well;
known rancher of the Grand Forks
valley and was about 66 years of,
age. Mrs. Geo., Fee of Stillwater,"
Miss Grace Barron of Allenby,
Mrs, Stanley Hull of Grand Forks,

daughters and eon of, the deceased.
"The Bible says there will be no
marriages in Heaven." said "Willie.
���'I wonder if this is true" "Of
course it is," replied his little sister
Hazel. "How can the women
marry when their are no men in
the place?"   '
