COMMUNICATION
A Pretty Conceit
Life is not so short but there is always time enough for c6urtesy.
A certain well-known business man
who is noted for his quietness, was in
a pullman smoker when the general
pest, well known for his" mquisitive-
ness, approached him and attempted
to start a conversation with this question: "How many people work in your
office?"
"Oh," replied the quiet gentleman,
getting up' and throwing his cigar
away, "I should say, at a rough guess,
about two-thirds of them."
It was a pretty conceit of a romantic
father whose name was Rose, and who
named his daughter "Wild," so that she
grew up under the appellation of
"Wild Rose."'
Buii* the romance of the thing was
sadly spoiled when she married a man
by tlie name of "Bull."
On All Fours
Two toppers met after they'd had a
hectic night.
"How did you get home?" queried
one.
"Oh. I'd a rough passage.. How did
you manage?" ���
"I got on splendidly till someone trod
on my. hands,"
Midway, B.C., March 5, 1929,
Editor of The Ledge,
Greenwood, B.C.
Dear Sir,
At the last meeting of the Midway
Women's Institute, I was requested to
write you for a space in your valuable
paper, to make known publicly how our
organization is being mis-represented.
At our February meeting a schoolteacher was elected President, to the
dissatisfaction of some members not
present at that meeting; the complaint
being that a school-teacher was not.a
"farm-woman."
Now, "Sir, this organization is .not ex- -
clusiv'ely for farm-women, but for every
woman who cares to join it, creed, color
or occupation makes no difference.
The Midway Women's Institute is
incorporated with the rest of the
Women's Institutes of B.C., under the
Societies Act and is known collectively
as "British Columbia Women's Institutes." It doesn't mention the words
Farm-Women I hope I have made
this clear to all and sundry and thus
avoid any further comment.
"Our motto is "For Home and Country"
and by God's good grace we are going
to try and live up to it, and rise above
the petty unjust criticisms to which our
Institute has been subjected recently.
Thanking you for you kindness,
I beg to remain,
Yours faithfully,
LOTTIE J. PANNELL,
Secretary Midway W. I,

marked expansion in the production of
automobiles, artificial silk and electrical
equipment.
Considerable progress in electrification has already been made and may be
expected to continue. German industry, for example, is electrified for motive power to the extent of about 70
per cent.
It is not unlikely that the world consumption of copper is today 50 per cent,
higher than it was five years ago.
World consumption today of copper
from all sources, including that recovered from scrap, is over 2,000,000
tons per annum, as compared with
1,000,000 tons less than 20 years ago
and 500,000 tons in the closing years qf
the last century. Much of the increased use has undoubtedly been due
to the development of the electrical industry, which in all its branches uses
more than 40 per cent, of available copper, while the automobile industry uses
about. 12 per cent, and the building
industry 5 per cent.
The world production of electricity
has more than doubled since 1913 and
the limit of expansion has' not by any
means been reached.
As far as can be judged, not more
than 15 per cent of the world's potential water power has been utilized.--

(Experimental Farms Note)
The cleaning of seed, grain should be
one of the mpst; important; operations
on the farm, and the fariner who* retains clean land and produces clean
grain year after year must follow the
practice of thoroughly'.cleaning all
grain before seeding.
The machinery necessary for cleaning and the way of .doing this work
must be governed by the seeds and
other impurities to be removed. Impurities such as broken straw, chaff,
and weed seeds which differ markedly
in size and shape from the grain being
cleaned can be readily cleaned out by
most fanning mills properly operated.
The weed seeds which are of much the
same size as the grain being cleaned
are the main difficulty and where such
separations are to be made special
machines are necessary and in special
cases, as separating wild oats from oats,
the only thorough method of cleaning
is by hand picking.
The cleaning out of inert matter and
weed seed of widely different size from
the grain need not be discussed extensively in this article as nearly any make
of general purpose cleaner properly
operated will do good work in such
cases. Care must be taken to operate
at the right speed and to feed within
its capacity as when the sieves are
overloaded no machine can* do good
work.
The cleaning of grain where the impurities are similar in shape presents
greater difficulty and in many cases
speciar cleaners are required to do a
good job. In any district where a central cleaning plant is available the
farmer is advised to have grain cleaned
at such a plant unless he raises suffi
cient seed to warrant installing a plant
of his own. A fairly satisfactorily small
cleaning plant can be fixed up by a
farmer -by combining a fanning mill
and an indent or disk machine in line.
Tttf fanning! mill will blow off or separate the inert matter and widely different sized; seeds and the special
machine for 'the purpose will make the
finer separations. Some farmes use a
combination bf three machines, the last
two being suited for special purposes.
To determine whether the machine is
doing the work you wish, spread out a
quantity of the cleaned seed on a table
where weed seeds "can be readily seen.
A sample may also be sent.to a seed
laboratory where an analysis of the
impurities will be made.-
AU seed should be cleaned before
see'ding and cleaning should be done
early enough in the spring-so that the
work does not have to be hurried.

THE COPPER SITUATION
Careful study of-the factors underlying* the copper situation shows that a
strong demand and good prices for this
metal may be expected for some time
to come, although thc present strained
condition of the market may not continue beyond July, according to S. H.
Logan, general* manager of the Canadian Bank of Commerce.
No alarm need be felt for at least
many years with regard to the quantity of copper available, for, while
under normal conditions consumption
is increasing at the rate of between
-4--and-5-per-=centrper=annumfthere=are
known to be at least 2,500,000,000, tons
of accessible ore, sufficient.to last for
20 j/ears or more without the. need of investigating new. sources, although, of
course, further exploration is warranted in these countries, such as Canada,
where geological and mining conditions
are favorable. Just at present demands
exceeds blister and refined supply, owing to a noticeable improvement in
world industry, especially in Canada;
the United States and Europe, and-to
the lower output from Chile as a result
of a recent earthquake.
But apart from the room for expansion in mineral output, the operations
of the smelting industry, although at a
high level,. are understood to be not
more than 95 per cent. ; of capacity.
Two other factors must be taken into
account as offsetting in the long.run
any temporary shortage of new supplies���the. large production of secondary copper removed from remeltingold
copper and brass scrap, an increasingly improtant item in commerce, and,
secondly the fact that high prices tend
to stimulate production from all
sources, and cause consumers to turn
to ^substitutes such as lead, aluminum
and rustless iron.
Accordingly, a shortage of refined
copper cannot last long unless the,leading producers combine to restrict their
output, which they are not likely to do
in view of the good profits they can
make with copper selling at the present
price, or at 15 to 16 cents per pound.   7
The" mechanical perfection of copper
mining -has been; broughtAto such a
pitch that low -: grade ore no longer
deters exploitation if found insufficient
quantity, and the profitable nature of
these .processes may be judged from
the fact that in a recent year one company in the7United States is known to
have mined,and:treated over 12,000,000
tons of ore averaging .1.02 per: cent,
copper and to have dividends amounting to nearly- $7,000,000 for the 12-
month period.
The year 1923 marked the beginning
of a rehabilitation in the copper industry as far as the United States was
concerned, but it was not until nearly
four years later that European consumption made any headway toward
regaining its "pre-war-level. It is dif-
cult to obtain up-to-date figures with
regard to European industries, biit
there has undoubtedly been partial recovery in the older industries and a-,
(The Monetary Times)
In the decision to leave the approval
of bank amalgamations in the hands
of the government without submitting
each case to, parliament, the Dominion
House of Commons is on solid ground.
As the Minister of Finance, the Honorable James A. Robb, ably explained, the
very nature of a bank, and the peculiar
attitude of the public towards it, makes
ifc essential that there should be no
premature disclosures, which might
force the very condition which it was
desired to avoid.
In speaking on the motion in -the
House of Commons by Thomas L.
Church to amend the Bank Act to make
the consent of parliament necessary
before an agreement for amalgamation
is reached, Mr. R. B. Bennett, leader of
the Opposition, stressed certain very
important points which are frequently
forgotten���by^-many���peopler���While
emphasizing the point made by the
Minister of Finance that the government in previous cases had been concerned most regarding the interests of
the depositors, Mr. Bennett stated a
fact which is frequently overlooked,
and that-is that the money which.a
bank has out on loan is not its own but
is the money of the depositors. This is
a matter which seems to be forgotten
by many of those who criticize and
carp at the banks for showing conservatism in the granting of loans, and
demanding adequate security. The
banks which exist in Canada to-day.
and hold such enviable reputations, do"
so because they remembered their trust
and did not risk their depositors'
money. Had some of those institutions
which are now defunct followed the
same program,. they might still be in
existence, although in this connection
-it is to' be noted that the Standard
Bank at the time -of its amalgamation
was fully solvent, the main trouble
there being in regard to the fact that
deposits were not increasing, owing
possibly to events of previous years.
It is evident, therefore, that the question, of deposits is a most important
one as far as the banks are concerned.
In the first place, if they are to do
business, they, must attract deposits.
In the second place, they must make
the public feel assured that their deposits will be well taken "care of. The
duty of the bank to its depositors,
.therefore, is all important, and Mr.
Bennett did well to bring it up so that
it might ,be impressed on those _ who
cannot oi* will not understand the attitude of the banks if they sometimes
appear too strict in their method of
operating.
Amalgamations are not popular with
a large section of the public, but there
is no doubt that the whole country
would rather have a merger than any
catastrophe which might result in
serious loss to those who have given
their money over to the bank for safe
keeping, even though that condition
might be in the far distance. It is
evident that at least most of the recent
mergers which have taken place have
been permitted for the sake of the depositors rather than the shareholders,
as is so often maintained.

of the' Empress of Australia" on
ner seventh cruise around the world,
starting December 2nd.
LT.he . interest of the Prince of
wales in Canadian affairs was demonstrated recently when, following
his speech at Mansion House, in
London, he visited the British
, Industries Fair, and spent some time
in examining the exhibits of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. He took
great interest in the moving train
models and commented upon the
artistic nature of the  round the
- world cruise working model.   Her
Majesty   the  Queen,   and   Prince "
,'Oeorge passed along the same gangway and showed great interest in'
the displays.

interesting  events  of  the .winter
* season in the west is scheduled to
take place in Regina on March 20-23
next when the Great West Canadian   !

'The principle of rapid freezing ���
has such qualifications that there
seems to be little room for doubt
that it'is going to revolutionize the
fishing industry," stated Wr A.
Found, deputy minister of fisheries.
We intend to make thee xperiment-
al-station at Halifax of th'e utmost
value to the whole industry."
W.-J. C. Madden of Calgary, is
making * arrangements with the
Canadian Pacific Express Company
for the transportation of whitefish
caught in Great Slave Lake from
Edmonton to Chicago. It is intended that the distance-from the
fishing, ground to rail head will be"
covered in winter by five-ton trucks
operating upon the thick ice "of the
Slave and Athabaska Rivers, traversing country that would otherwise be difficult to cross.
A new and strange Jorm of wildfowl is being imported into Alberta
by the Calgary Fish and Game Association, .which has arranged to secure,2,000 Mongolian and Chinese
ring-necked-pheasants. The birds
are to be liberated this summer
throughout the southern part of the
province, where 1800 were placed
last season as part of the Game
Association's plan for re-stocking
Alberta's game bird supply. With

of a "solarium", car, containing

where he had been almost eight months.
Ho had two operations on an infected
leg trying lb save it, and "finally had to"
have it amputated, a few days before
Christmas. Thc wound has now
healed and he will get an artificial leg.
The trouble all started from a loose
cartilage in 1916 and three years later
it was operated on and the cartilage
removed but gradually it got -worse
every year. Mr. Murphy is well known
to the' old timers of the district having
worked in the early days at the Mother
