G.  P.  Harpur, of Myncaster  spent
Monday in town.    .
(Penticton Herald) " -
The struggle between kelowna and
Penticton for the road to Carmi and
Beaverdell grows keen.    .       N - <
It is reported here that Kelowna has
obtained the support of Dr. Kingston
member for Grand Foiks-Greenwood,
the local assumption being that he
would naturally prefer a north' and
soutli road east of Okanagan lake as
this* would* probably mean ^the wide-
.v ning" and improving of the existing
road rfrom Rock Creek to Beaverdell,
thus holding trade from that mining
camp for the Grand Froks-Greenwood
.centres.* Vernon has also -supported
the Kelowna view. .    '-    ,"- ���'_
The  Kelowna  road  to  Carmi  and
Beaverdell wquld be about twenty miles
.    longer than one from.-Penticton into
.     that country and while, by using--the
present   Kelowna-McOulloch   road" it
.would no.t be any more expensive it
would not give a permanent satisfactory grade on account" of the  steel)
climb-to McCulloch.'. This* could not-be'
overcome without Heavy-expense. -
-    On the other hand, it is claimed here'
' a rqad from Penticton-could be built
on a permanent grade at the same expense as the" more or less temporary
highway to Kelowna, having the addi-
.    tional advantage of being much shorter
>It was reported at a supper meeting
-of the Board of Trade on Wednesday
night that the residents ol Carmi*and
* Beaverdell "had signed" a petition 100
per cent strong rih favor of a road to
, Penticton,  considering--this point  the
natural outlet for that''counlry owing
' to its proximity.
The board members discussed at
their meeting-the possibility "of interviewing the members from Yale. Nelson
and Trail with a view ol ascertaining if
a transprovincial highway route could
be developed up the Kettle" river and
over the hill to Penticton, but, it was
concluded that in view of the amount
. of mqney which the provincial gov-
, ernment has.already expended on the
Anarchist mountain road the better
policy would bc merely io ask for a
suitable "country", road * ctnnecting tho
- mining camps with Penticton. This
could be constructed at a minimum of
expense and would not involve any
questions of policy such as would cer-
. tainly be ""-produced 'ii. any variation
.from the present transprovincial highway routes was suggested.
Hon. W. A. McKenzie, who, as
minister of mines, is -naturally interested m giving Beaverdell and Carmi
camps an outlet in  addition  to  the
acting as minister ol public^ works in
the absence of Hon. Nels Lougheed on
a six weeks'-trip to the Old Country.
He has-written to the'local board to
state that it is not necessary to have a
delegation go down to Victoria on this
��� subject at .the present time. He
expects to visit/the district in the very
near future, and will go into the matter
fully then.    ."

The Hercules Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power Corporation Limited has started Spring "(mining operations in the Greenwood Camp. A crew
of miners-went up" to the Anaconda
group, situated north of the old Mother
Lode Mine in Deadwood Camp this
morning*. This is a copper property,
and was owned aiid worked by the
Fletcher interests iri the early days.
Development at that time showed up a
considerable body, of copper ore. It is
the intention of the Hercules Corporation to do intensive development on
this group. , ���
The Crescent Group
Work will commence immediately on
the Crescent group,' a" short distance
East of Greenwood on' the Phoenix
Hill, owned by the Crescent Mines'
Limited. This concern is controlled by
the Hercules-Corporation. There are
12 claims in the group.. Development
will start on the Crescent, which has
yielded good value's in silver-lead.
Considerable , work was done on-this
property last fall,- which 'was very encouraging to'_ the. owners."
R. Crowe-Swords Visits
* "     Deadwood Camp
. R. Crowe-Swords, the energetic representative of the Hercules Corpora-:
tion arrived in town on, Monday and
made arrangements-for the commencement of work'in the'Greenwood section.
On Tuesday morning' he" examined the
Anaconda' group and sampled same.
He also inspected other copper property in the Deadwood "basin. Wednesday evening he was motored to
Grand,Forks by G. S. Walters, where
he starts development" work on the
Hercules Corporation, property in that
section. Mr. Crowe-Swords will then
return to" VancouverT"ChaT? Brennan
who was in charge of the Greenwood
office early in the year will return from
Vancouver in about ten days time.
Enough miners can be had in this-
district to carry ^on the development
work, and there-is no need of men to
come in from other sections.
The success of the Hercules Corpora-
ration's venture will mean much to thc
old town of Greenwood.

The car load of ore shipped to Trail
last week from the Wellington at Beaverdell, was up to the average grade of
previous shipments from the upper
workings. This rich strike at depth on
Wallace Mountain has up set the theories of many prominent mining engineers and operators, thus confirming
the judgement of the men in charge of
the Wellington"; whose-theories backed
by the district mining engineer and
the prominent engineer of the Hecla
Mining Co. -

William'Yolan Williams, 75, pioneer
mining engineer and widely known in
the Pacific northwest, died in Spokane,
Wash., on Sunday, March 24th. He
lived in that region for 47 years.
Williams came to the Coeur d'Alene in
the-early 90's and was superintendent
of the, famous Sierra Nevada mine. He
was at one time chief engineer of the
Granby mine at Phoenix.
R. L. Clothier, superintendent of Uie
Beaver Silver mine, situated, near Beaverdell, B.C.', stated on Tuesday to the
Vancouver Sun that high grade ore is
being taken out of the mine now during development and excellent headway is being made on the crosscut
which is being driven to the northeast
for. the purpose of picking iip - the
"Niger" vein-m* Beaver -territory;--.*. - *
This vein is narrower than the famous'
Bell vein, which carries the big values in
the property, but is very high-grade,
furnishing a substantial tonnage where
it was opened near the Bell vein. The
vein has been stripped on the'surface
over the Bell boundary line into Beaver ground, and should be encountered
"at depth in the crosscut within two
weeks at present rate of progress.
Mr. Clothier stated that -the outlook
at the Beaver Silver is more favorable
than ever and that officials expect to
place the Beaver in the list of high-
grade shippers this spring.
To Division ir, Greenwood Superior

(Experimental Farms Note)
Experimental work during the past
few years has drawn particular'attention to the importance of sunlight in
the successful brooding and rearing of
It has been definitely shown that unless special supplementary feeds are
fed chicks cannot be raised satisfacto-'
rily in the absence of sunlight. Since
many early hatched chicks, particularly where cold winters are the rule,
have not the opportunity of geting-out
into the sunlight it is essential to supply some form of substitute for the
sun's rays to avoid trouble from leg
weakness or rickets.
Experimental work carried on at the
Poultry Division of the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, has definitely
shown that in spite of the {complete
absence of sunlight, chicks may be kept
healthy and make rapid gains if given
certain supplementary feeds.
Of these, crude cod liver oil is the
most eflicient and when fed at a rate
'Of 2 per cent of the mash consumed or
about one tablespoonful daily to each
fifty chicks, will give complete protection against rickets. Since cod liver
oil is easily obtainable it is advisable
to feed this material rather than the
product known as cod liver meal, since
the latter has given rather indifferent
results in experiments conducted here.
It is just possible that the same uniformity in quality is not available in
the case of cod liver meal, and that it
therefore is not at the present time at
least, ~as dependable, as cod liver oil.
Certain physical agencies in the form
of ultra-violet ray machines and special glass substitutes will also give the
desired eflect. The former method of
supplying the sun's rays is at present
quite expensive, and in the experimental stage, its practical value not having
been definitely determined. Most'glass
substitutes are not so durable as common glass and "allow only certain proportion of the sun's rays into the house,
and once the chicks can get out into
the sunlight, or windows can be opened
wide, their usefulness is ended. Cod
liver oil is much cheaper and will carry
the chicks over until such time as they
can reap full benefit of the sun's rays.

much to recommend them as seed
potato disinfectants. They are being
improved each year and it is expected
that their use will render seed treatment less troublesome.
The corrosive sublimate method consists in soaking the seed potatoes IVj
hours in a solution composed of 4 ounces of corrosive sublimate in 25 gallons
of water! One-half an ounce of the
chemical is added after each treatment
of 1VX hours. Investigations extending
over a period of four years at the Dominion Laboratory of, Plant Pathology,
Charlqttetown, have demonstrated that
the solution is ineffective after the
third soak. .The extra half ounce added
after this7period is wasted and would
be profitably used in preparing a new
solution. Furthermore, it has been
learned that the strengh of the solution
weakens 7 rapidly in the presence of
broken tubers and potato juice. Therefore, this, source of trouble is to be
avoided if success is expected. General
precautions include.. the following (1)
Dissolve, the corrosive sublimate in not
less than one gallon of very hot water.
(2) Treat only tubers free from dirt.
Throwing water on the pile will help to
avoid this difficulty. , (3) Use two clean
casks after each treatment. (4) Prepare new solutions after three treatments. (5) Do not treat in bags." (6X
Use soft water if possible. Hard water
weakens the solution. (7) Put treated
seed in a clean place to dry quickly.
Do not leave them iri the basement.
(8) If the weather does not permit
rapid drying throw several pails of
water ori the treated tubers.

Early spring weather can play some
mean tricks upon the vegetable gardener. Several warm sunny days may
tempt him to set out tender varieties.
Then a sharp frost may destroy them.
To take advantage of these warm days
of early growth various types of protectors- have been manufactured by
means of which the grower may carry
his plants through a cold snap. When
the grower is producing* commercial
quantities for market the cost of such
protection must be given very careful
consideration. Wh"en the increased returns from early produce obtained by
the use of parotectors does not exceed
the cost of such protection'their use is
not economical. If, however, the grower is producing vegetables for his own
table and is anxious to secure certain
varieties as early as possible, cost is not
a limiting factor, and plant protectors
may give good satisfaction.
At the Dominion Experimental Station, Summerland, B.C. plant protectors have beeen tested for three years,
in growing cantaloupes. Glassine,
Hotkaps, Wee Hothouses and Thermo-
gen have been tried. Glassine is a
transparent paper made by the sulphuric acid process. It is supplied in
sheets 16 by 18 inches. The seeds or
plants are set. A piece of wire 24 inches long is arched oyer-the hill like
a croquet arch. A sheet of Glassine is
placed on the wire and-the edges covered with soil to hold in place, Hot-
kapu is the copyright trade name for
an opaque paper cap with a flaring
edge. -These are packed in rolls of 1000.
A metal setter is suplied. These may
be set very rapidly. A cap is placed in
the setter which is then placed over the
hill. Soil is drawn around its' edge.
The setter is withdrawn leaving the
Kap firmly set. Wee Hothouses are
paraphin paper caps with a small ope-
"ning'in the top and a basal diameter
of 5 to 6 inches. Having no flaring
edge these blow' away easily in high
winds. Thermogen is a heavy perforated paper with anasphalt base. -It
comes in rolls of 18 inches or 36 inches
wide, containing 200 or 400 square feet,
A strip is unrolled, the edges covered
With soil and seeds or plants set
through slits in the Thermogen. It is
similiar to the protection used by pine
apple growers in Hawaii to keep down
weeds. At prevailing prices the cost
Was found to be prohibitive for commercial growers of cantaloupes. Considerable difficulty in irrigation practice was experienced with Thermogen
When the furrow system was used. Ir
ligation by menas of sprinklers might
overcome this difficulty. Plant protectors have been known to carry cucumbers safely through a frost of 10 degrees in this district but some losses
occurred with a frost" of 12 degrees.
Plant protectors have been- successfully
used commercially in this district.
In preparing for the spring activi
ties in connection with treatment of
seed potatoes, it is well to review some
of the questions which were unanswered in the rush of affairs last year,
leaving doubt and coufusion as to the
method used and its effectiveness. Authorities agree-that seed treatment is
beneficial and while this operation is
occasionally overlooked, the satisfactory experience of a few in' so doing
must not be eccepted as a guide to the
majority. It Is Advisable, Therefore,
To Treat Your Seed Potatoes.,
In treating seed potatoes we have
any'of the three chemicals from which
to select-for this purpose, namely, hot
formain," organic mercury, compounds,
and corrosive sublimate. "The first
riamed l gives excellent satisfaction,
when used at the rate of 1 pint of commercial formalin to 12 % gallons of
water. The tubers are dipped iri this
solution for two minutes when the temperature is held- at 118-124* degrees F.
This is a convenient method where
large quantities of potatoes are to be
treated. An accurate dairy thermometer is essential. It is often convenient
to haul the potatoes Ho a nearby
creamery where steam is available to
keep the temperature even. -

���THURSDAY, MARCH 28; 1929.
. Refined copper prices reached a new
postwar peak, in New York on March
22nd when thc metal sold for 24 cents
a pound, domestic, an advance of 1
cent a pound, after consumers had
bought practically all of the metal
offered at 23 cents. ,The previous.postwar record for domestic" copper was
23 xh cents, attained in 1919.
Copper for export was quoted at
23 Ya cents a pound, but it was expected
to climb in line with the domestic quotations. Heavy foreign buying has
been-one of the chief-, factors m the
recent upward price movements

Anti-shock iron and clubs that add
from forty to fifty yards to the average
player's distance are the latest achievement claimed by golf manufacturers
iri Chicago.    "
The anti-shock clubs are faintly re-
"  miniscentn of the "rubber.suspension"
- of- automobile  motors.   In   the   joint
.   between the shaft and hosel ot the
irons, a sheet of rubber is inserted.
Manufacturers  claim  this  eliminates
the shock impact,, insures more accurate approaches, soothes ragged���nerves,
. and saves the hands from callouses.  _

Although Canadians have been
styled strong "silent" men tliere
seems little to support the refutation in Iho recent announcement tbat they ;i>re the world's
greatest telephone conversationalists. There aro 1,259,987 tele-,
phones in Canada, recently published statistics disclose, a-Uowing!
for a 'phone for every eight persons. If all the conversations that
took place during the past year
. wore placed end to end they
would be hea-rd in. Mars/ for every
citizen held on an average of 221
conversations', during 1928'. Presumably this * does* not include
wrong numbers. "

- Called out in thc middle
of the "night to repair longdistance telephone lines
broken*by a fallen -.tree, a
trio* of New .^Westminster
telephone men had all the
. lines working in time for the
commencement of the regu-"
Iar business day. -
The trouble developed
late on the night of February 24. A tree, about 18
inches in diameter, fell across
the telephone wires at a point
where it passes through the
Green Timber on the'Pacific
Highway." It broke all lines
on that route, and also caused
a pole to break. The telephone men made temporary
repairs by stringing wires
around the scene of thc mishap.
