Mining Notes
The ring of the miner's pick
will be heard more this year in the
bills and dales of British Columbia
than it has been since the famous
rush to the. Cariboo in the late
fifties, and the sixties oNast century. Then it was heard only in
the neighborhood of the Fraser
river; this year oit will be heard
from the international boundary
to the Yukon, from Alberta to tbe
Coast Islands. Then the search
was only for gold, now it is for
gold, silver and platinum, for base
metals, for coal and for oil. Then
the prospector had ^not been preceded by the geologist, who,
"Half reading in the hard primeval sod.
The infinite biography of God."
now tells the prospector where to
go, where he is likely to abtain the
greatest reward for his labor, and,
what perhaps ia equally important,
where not to go, thereby often
saving years "%i futile endeavor.���

Tlie Last Link in 6,500-Mile Highway
With the official opening of the
Banff-Windermere Highway in tlie
Canadian Kockies scheduled for tlie
near future, the last link in a 6,500-
mile chain of scenic roadway will have
been welded into place, making cm unbroken circuit from California to Canada and return. It passes through
t'lrand Canon Park, Yellowstone Nalional Park, Glacier l'ark, and the
Shuswap Indian Reserve in Western
Canada, and traverses part of a most
picturesque country. Front Maeleod,
In Southeastern Alberta, a "rectangular" route can he covered, including
ihe beautiful 93-mile link from Hanff
fo Windermere, just completed. One
side of the rectangle runs north from
Maeleod, crossing many streams,
llirough Parkland and Midnapore to
Calgary. Here the ro: d makes a
great winding turn in a generally
westerly direction toward the wonderful country surrounding Banff.
.���M'ter leaving this latter town tlie road
soon begins to run south, ascending
steadily past Sinclair Pass, which
divides the Brisco and Stanford
ranges. Vermilion Pass, the highest
point on the trip, is just ahead with
an altitude of 5,37G feet. The fourth,
or southerly side 'of the rectangle begins after Fort Steele is passed, near
Eiko. Here the highway swings
sharply to the north, as if it had lost
Its sense of direction, but, recovering
at Michel, it turns east, making a
sharp "corner" again at Pinche-v, and
re-entering Maeleod, the starting
point, from the southwest. Every
part of this 5(!7-mile circuit passes
through regions of great ' natural
beauty, and the motorist cannot but
i'eel well rewarded after making the
round trip.���By E. M. Webber, In the

Utilizing Skim Milk
Proves   Valuable   Food   for   Livestock
and Poultry
'\'\ie growth in dairying in the
prairie provinces has resulted in a
considerable increase in dairy by-products. During the past three years
experiments have been conducted at
the Dominion Experimental Station
at Scott, to determine the value ot
these by-products, when fed fo livestock, states M. J. Tinline, Superintendent at Scott.
The first experiment was commenced iu the autumn of 1920, when a Per-
cheron filly foal, in poor condition,
was fed milk, in addition to its regular ration of grain and hay. The
milk- was feu from shortly before the
colt was weaned until spring. During a period of 151 days, the colt
made an average of 2.9 pounds per
day. This is the best gain made by
any of the foals reared on the station.
The following winter skim milk was
fed to a pen of pullets, in addition to
their regular feed, with the exception
that no beef scrap was given. Another lot received beef scrap, instead
of skim milk. The average production from tbe latter pen was 25 eggs
per bird, while the skim milk-fed pen
produced an average of 36 eggs per
bird. A similar experiment conducted during the past winter has been
completed, and while both milk and
beef scrap-fed pens gave almost
double the production of the check lot
receiving no animal protein, the milk-
fed lotcagain gave the best returns.
Cheese experiments bear out the
findings at the Dominion Experimental Station, at Cap Rouge, Quebec.
The results from experiments there
have been published in Circular No.
31. Some experiments conducted in
the United States go to show skim
milk to be worth $1.40 per hundred,
while eggs are selling at 45 cents per
Buttermilk is another by-product
that should be utilized wherever it
can be secured at reasonable cost. In
an experiment conducted during the
past season, twelve pure-bred Yorkshire gilts were divided into two
pens of six each. One lot received,
in addition to their regular feed, seven pounds of buttermilk daily, per pig.
The grain ration for the check lot was'
identical with that given "the other lot,
but' lib"" buttermilk- was supplied.'Xy- It
was' fount],,that/after-V period or..43.

The Strawberry Patch
Experimental   Farm   Notes   by   W.   R.
Leslie,     Superintendent      Experi-
i mental Station, Morden. Man.
Prairie experimental stations are
receiving many enquiries concerning
the cut lure of strawberries. Tin's
much-appreciated berry is a <iuick
(action fruit, crop. June-bearing ^varieties set. out this spring are expected to bear heavily in 1924. The "ever-
j bearing" varieties, which are plants
developing secondary crowns, will
seem anxious to produce a crop of
fruit this summer. Jf is probably always best to keep blooms cut from
all ^strawberry plants during the season ol" setting out.
There are a* number of vital factors
which enter into successful strawberry culture. The factor most gen-
eraly responsible for failure with this
berry crop in prairie Canada is water
supply. Strawberry plants tend to
produce a most generous weight of
fruit, considering the size of the plant
and the comparative shortness of the
root system. The great effort is during May and June, and if moisture
supply is ample during that period
healthy plants generally bear bountiful crops. People notice the wild
berries to be small and scanty in seasons of a dry early summer. The
home garden patch to give satisfaction "will require a supply of soft water
during the month of June. Commercial plantations are best placed by a
stream from which water may be
jmmped, or on an area provided with
a Skinner or other irrigation system.
Too much watering is to be carefully avoided, as excess of water results in - soft berries which do not
keep well. Strawberry plants in wild
stale are found mostly in moist situations and where the soil reaction is
more or less acid. Alkaline water is
likely to have harmful effect if applied, to the strawberry plantation.
Shelter is distinctly an advantage
to the plants. A. south slope is favorable for early maturing. To attain
satisfactory results the,;area must be
kept free from grass and weeds.
Good cultivation early in the season
is beneficial. Later,0 straw may be
spread between .the rows, and this
will help-t'o Icee'p the berries .clean
and free of soil; also it will act as a
The strawberry patch deserves
much attention and will well repay
time and work spent therein. The
matted row is generally used. If
runners are trained so that a plant
develops every six inches from another, plant, good use will be made of
the soil space. Small berries result
when plants are too close together.
.It is good policy to nip off a runner
as qoon as a plant develops upon it.- =

School of Agriculture, International     Correspondent     Schools,
Scranton, Pa.)
No animal of benefit io mankind
seems to be free from pests of some
sort or other that constantly tend to
reduce its usefulness.
Domestic poultry seem to have their
full share of such pests and a considerable number of these are insect
pests, most of,which are lice and mites
The lice attacking chickens and
staying on the body continually aro
very small and may be killed by dusting. Red mites oh the other hand
are usually found on the chickens at
night only when they are on the
roost, and hide in the cracks and crevices of the house during the daytime.
They_ prick the skin and suck the
blood from the body of the fowl and
also leave an irritation on the surface
of the skin.
There are three general classes of
insecticides that are reliable to kill
poultry parasites. They are powders,
liquid and fumes/ The powder has
to be dusted on the bodies of the
parasites so that the fine particles will
be drawn into the breathing tubes ol
the insects which will become clogged; the insects then will die of suffocation. , The liquids will "kill because they are corrosive or because
they get into the breathing tubes.and
suffocate the insects and the fumes
kill because they suffocate.
Avoid Poisonous Powders
Insect powders, as a class, are not
poisonous but are merely fine powders
that are used to suffocate the insects.
Insecticides containing arsenic, such
as Paris green or other highly poisonous matter, should not be used about
poultry buildings as. they, are dangerous to the fowls and'sometimes to'the'
attendant,.',..-    ��� "7. :  - . "���

of any insect powder lies ..in.-the rp-

Four Guard Flag at Top of World
Members of Stefansson's Expedition
Still On Wrangel Island
Four lonely Canadians, marooned
on Wrangel Island, at the top of the
map, have been wailing since 1021 to
have that bleak Arctic region proclaimed Canadian soil. The four are
the members of a landing party left
by Vilhjalinitr Stefansson, the explorer, on his visit to the island several
years ago. While the former members of his expedition possess their
souls in patience and hunt muskox
and seal, for a living, Stefansson is
negotiating witli the Canadian Government to reimburse him for the expense of his polar voyage, and accept sovereignty over Wrangel Island
in payment. -
When members of the Stefansson
party raised the Canadian jlag on
Wrangel Island, in 1921, there' was
some discussion as to the propriety
of the action. The flag has remained,
with three men and a boy to guard it,
but no step has been taken yet to
assert formal sovereignity over
the .-northern area. Stefansson,
who fitted out his own expedition, at
a cost of $25,000, when he failed to interest the Canadian Government in his
plans, now argues that his addition to
the Canadian domain should be worth
tit least that much money.
The main value of the island at
present, according to Stefansson, is
strategic. lie says that it is lirectly
in the path of an ideal trans-polar air
route across the world.

of the unity of mankind���economically, materially, morally and spiritually.

States as in-other parts of the world

described as "gentlemanly fellows,"
Thursday morning visited the little
village of Mather, Man., held up the
Bank of Toronto at gun point, bound
the teller, blew open the safe, and departed noiselessly with their loot.
'This, .the first raid of Ihe season in
Manitoba, netted ?3,000 iu cash and
$200 in negotiable securities.
-.'.Die robbery was carried but at 2.15
a.m., and except for the noise of Ihe
safe-blowing, was executed iii absolute silence. No one but the (teller,
who was bound with bis own neckties.
ssiw the raiders appear; no one saw
them leave. The teller, C. A. Morden, heard uo sound to indicate that
they had come either by car or by airplane.- "'They folded their tents like'
the Arabs'' an/1 silently stole everything in sight.
During the raid, which occupied
only 20 minutes, other villages slept
undisturbed until roused by the teTler.
Morden had been left tied hand and
foot and covered up in his bed, but
was able to free himself without resistance when the robbers had gone.
It is presumed that the raiders used
an automobile and the police are certain that they came from across the

Winter Conditions

Navigation Will Hardly Open Befo.e
Middle of June
Si. Johns, Nlld.���The worst conditions ever known in J_,abrador leave
that coast still in the grip of King
Winter with a sixty-mile wide ice barrier culling off the snow-buried land
from the sea. Aviators of the Aerial
Survey Company of Newfoundland,
who recently returned from Labrador
reported they found lhe new gold
claims in.jhat. country covered with
snow .many "feet deep and there seems,
to be little likelihood of prospectors
reaching Labrador by" sea before
lhe middle of June.
At Cariwrighfc. Labrador, Uie
houses are completely covered by a
field of snow with only l.lie chimneys
showing. The schoolmaster there
who w<is imprisoned in his house for
two days, was finally rescued when
snowshoers were attracted by the
noise of tapping on ilie iron chimney
of-Iiis house.       7   .
French troops is -noi
iitces-saiy lo the security of France,
Premier Poincare informed lhe members of llie Finance and Foreign Affairs Commission!, in ihe French
Chamber. The occupation of the
Ruhr, he added, is essentially an operation designed to coerce Germany info
paying reparations. He reiterated
that the Ruhr would be gradually
c\acuated iu proportion to the paj-
ment ol German leparations. The
occupation of the lelt bank ot ih��
Rhine was considered by the Government as suflieienf military security.
Incidentally, M. Poincare in reviewing the four months''occupation
and asking the commissions to approve credits for continuation of the
operation, stated, that the receipts
from the Ruhr since January 11 lia'l
covered the strictly military expenses
which the occupation entailed.
The Premier pointed out that effective coal and coke transportation 0111
of the Ruhr began only on March ]."i
last. France is prepared to ^.prolong
the occupation as long as needful in
obtain results. "While the operation
had not yet proyed remunerative, it
has at least covered the military expenses, and would make coercion
easier and more efficacious. The
Premier declared that, the' French
Government was resolved to insist,
upon the final reparations, figures as
fixed by the London accord, and tlu.1
before it Vould agree to a reduction
of the German debt, an equal amount
must be eliminated from the interallied debt, as compensation.

The mineral wealth of British
Columbia will be well displayed at

in London next year. Hon.
William Sloan, minister of mines,
has about completed the collection
of an elaborate outlay of samples
of all ores recovered in the province

way, he claims, the attention of
capital will be directed to the investment possibilities of B. C. in a

7 Gradually during the7past week
a 8lang;phraae and ;a- story of the
���days of our .childhood have been
revived by the incidents pfispring.
In those days when a man talked
airily, with a strut or a1 pompous
bearing, the call was, 'cpuH.' down
your ..vest.".; This was' a. slang
phrase, whose.'origin .could easily
be traced. - The""'story - is .about, a
Chinaman ; who Svas travelling
across Canada in the winter at a.
time when it was quite the -thing
for Chinamen, to wear smock shirts.
The herb of.this:tale, was walking
. up and down the :"aisle7 of; the"cap,���"
rubbing, his hands together.- aiid
saying, -''bellee cole, bellee cole"
when ah old. Scotch lady in one of
the .seats'said to ,him in a stage
whisper , "put your shirt in.nion
and your body.v will'be warm
enough." This story was told by
a Presbyterian .minister at a Sun-,
day School' picnic, and therefore
.must .be wholesome ..and reliable.
Tt is 7 the short V vests the young
men,wear with an.inchV. or two of
shirt exposed that^ calls back, these
little, frivolities of th^e past.. In
spite, of. the. frivolities the young
men are nice.
