themselves of this opportunity of becoming, champion curlers and ..'such
phrases as "keep yer eye oh 'the"6rdbm','
get the right turn now, don't' be narrow" ate all quite familiar and of
course the ladies always have an eye
on the broom, always get' the right
turn and are never narrow. Not these
ladies anyway!
(Experimental Farms Note)-
Calves must be well started
It is a well known fact that the very
best possible start must be given to the
youngsters. To secure information on
the cost, of rearing calves a feeding experiment was conducted with 38 calves
at the Cap Rouge Experimental Station.
The project consisted in feeding
three lots of calves on different feeds
until they were 24 weeks old; one lot
received whole milk; the second, skim-
milk and a home-mixed meal consisting of six parts corn, three parts oats,
one and a half part flax seed, ��� by
weight, all ground together; the third
lot received, Royal Purple calf meal, a
well known commercial article. Besides
these feeds, the youngsters had all the
clover hay,' swede turnips, and corn
silage which they would clean up. The
feed, both liquid and solid, was-tfeighed
to the last pound, and the calves were
put on the scales at birth, at four,
eight, twelve, sixteen, twenty, and
twenty-four weeks.
Calculating feeds at current' prices
of the summer of 1925 (whole milk'
$2, skim-milk 20. cents, Royal Purple
meal $5, home-mixed meal $2.17, other
concentrates $1.72 per 100 pounds,
clover hay $9, corn silage $3, swede
turnips $1.80 per ton) it cost for feed,
until the calves were 24 weeks old, an
average of $49,03 for. each one raised
on whole milk, while the figures were
.respectively $15.99 for each fed-on the
Royal Purple meal, and $12,53 for each
fed on the home-mixed meal. The cost
per pound of gain was respectively 20.7
cents for whole milk, 7.4 cents for
Royal Purple meal, and 6.26 for home-
mixed meal.
Whole milk, after the first two'or
three weeks is completely out of the
question, from th point of the- economy, as a feed for calves, and a good
home-mixed meal is just as satisfactory
and cheaper than Royal Purple meal.  .-
The Annual Meeting of the Rock
Creek Farmers Institute was held at
Riverside Hall, Rock Creek, on Saturday, January 7th. The following officers were elected for 1928:
President.���Major R. Gray.
Vice-President.���Major F. E. Glossop.
Secretary-Treasurer.���R. E. Norris,
Kettle Valley. -    ���
Owing to the good condition of the
roads for sleighing a large number of
farmers turned out for this meeting.
The Greenwood Hockey team goes to
Grand Forks on Friday to play the
first game of the Intermediate Series.
A very sad accidental shooting
fatality occurred near Myncaster on
Thursday last, when Philip Harfmann
(not Harsnan as mentioned in the last
issue), aged 16 years, was found dead.
It, appears the young man went for- the
mail on horseback and carried a 22-
rifle in which to shoot at coyotes. He
left in the morning returning at- about
11 o'clock as his mother found the mail
on the table but did not see him put it
there. He took the horse to the stable
unsaddled it and it is thought when he
was reaching to put the saddle on the
peg, holding the gun at the same time,
the firing pin caught on another nail
peg causing the gun. to 'discharge.
The youth was found' by his father  -
at about 5 o'clock when he went to feed
the horses.   He immediately notified
the authorities and on Friday morning.
Constable W R. Powers and Coroner'
Dr. A. Francis left for the scene.   After .
holding an inquiry the coroner decided
that an inquest was unnecessary.
Mr. and Mrs. Harfmann parents of
the   deceased   are   practically   newcomers to the district. They purchased
the Smyrl ranch near Myncaster last'
fall but will not take possession until-
spring.   In the meantime they were'
living on the Wisted ranch.   The sudden death is a severe blow to them as
their son had-reached the age when he
was a great help on the farm.
Besides his parents he leaves to
mourn his loss two brothers and one
sister". >
The funeral was held in Rock Creek '
on Monday, services being, conducted
by Rev. Andrew Walker in Riverside
Hall and at the graveside.
(Experimental Farms Note)
The production of pork for marketing in March'and early April should be
a profitable side line in any general
farming programme in the interior
districts of B.C. There the climate
conditions are ideal for wintering fall
farrowed litters in good thrifty condition. Pigs farrowed before October
first are the more desirable as they are
then-- well developed before ' severe
weather sets in. Weaning from the
sow should be accomplished with as
little check in growth as possible By
providing the suckling pigs with a
creep after they are a few weeks of age
they thereby become accustomed to the
new diet which may consisit chiefly of
skim-milk and preferably middlings or
shorts with the addition of a small
amount of finely ground oats, when
f��v��n or eight.weeks of age,,they are--
then-almost -independent;-of the sow-
if they are so handled weaning'them
from the mother's milk does not check
their growth to any- extent. The important point to keep in mind in handling young pigs is that they must not
be expected to handle course ground
foods or foods containing a large nro-
portion of hull or fibre.
After weaning has been' successfully
accomplished, provide dry sleeping
quarters with a board floor, free from
direct draughts. Pigs will withstand
considerable cold if they are given dry
sleeping quarters. Adequate ventilation is esential in the sleeping quarters
as. otherwise sweating and over-heat-
by 8 feet and larger have proven very
satisfactory winter quarters for feeder
pigs at the Dominion Experimental
station at Summerland. As the pigs
grow, care must be exercised in providing sufficient room for the pigs to sleep
comfortable. Plenty of yard room for
exercise keeps them growthy and
The feeding is very important. Until
the feeders are four months of age
avoid much fatening feeds such as
corn or barley. It is wiser to depend
on ground oats and. shorts in proportion of about three to two. About one
portion of finely ground barley or corn
meal may be added if available. Succulence in the form of cull apples or
roots and alfalfa hay fed in racks as
a dry roughage would be helpful.
Feed only what the youngsters will
clear up quickly.
Alfalfa hay fed liberally in open
ieedmg racks has been attended ��� with
wonderful results at the Summerland
Station. Feeders receiving all the hay
they desired, but no roots or apples,
thrived as well and finished as quickly
as those feeders getting either roots or
apples alone, or in addition to the
alfalfa. There is very little waste from
hay fed judiciously in racks.
If desired grains rations may be
handled with excellent results, in self
��efeus-,.?ufc keeP the P^ growthy
and healthy at all times and crippling
during winter months will be avoided.
Forcing pigs' during severe weather in
sniall, close, wet quarters or on cement
floors is usually hazardous, but if
handled,in a sane .manner pork production should be, and is, a profitable

cisiqn of the Soviet authorities' to
wage an intensified campaign against
Samogon, or homebrewed liquor especially used by the peasants, the all-
Russian Soviet executive committee
has decided to forbid th manufacture
of samogon, even for personal use, as
well as the manufacture," sale or repair
of implements designed for making
samogon. Violations are punishable by
a" month's hard labor or a fine of 100
rubles.- .

The prediction has been made from many sources, ancl witli but few
reservations, if_any, lhat (he year 1928 gives promise of being one of tlie
greatest years of devclopmcntPin Canada's History, marked by unprecedented
activity in mining, manufacturing; building, water-power development, transportation, ancl a rising-tide of immigration. Authorities in banking and
finance are a unit in declaring that Canada is now in a position to take a
giant step forward, and that apart from the financial ability and resources
���of Canada itself, both British and United States money will bc available tor
sound development enterprises.
What of agriculture, tlie,basic industry of Western Canada, and upo:
the prosperity of which much of the* growth and prosperity of all Canadian
industry depends ?
It is generally recognized that agriculture occupies a stronger position
today Uian it did a lew years- ago ancl that' conditions have been -steadily
improving year by year. There is a feeling of hopefulness abroad that this
situation will continue. But if 1928 is,to prove a successful year for our
Western farmers they must themselves take time by the forelock and lay tlie
.foundations of that success. It is now when the snow is .on'the'ground .and
��� the temperature hovers around the zero point that the first step towards
��� assuring good crops in the fall of the year must be taken.
Later in the year everybody, ancl especially the farmers, will look anxiously for adequate rainfalls at tlie right season, for bright sunshiny days,
.for an absence of frosts, hail, rust and other blighting agencies, and for good
���weather for harvest and threshing. But a combination of all these favorable
conditions will not in~themselves assure the West a bumper crop. Something
-hiorc is required, and now is the time to provide it     The conditions noted
above are not within the power of man to determine, but, fortunately, it is in j
��� hia power absolutely to. provide the first essential requirement, namely, good, j
��� clean seed possessing a maximum of germinating qualities.
Unless the best of cleaii seed is sown, the best)and cleanest crops cannot
be obtained. If weed seeds are sown, weeds and not wheat, oats, or other
saleable grain will result. This fact is so obvious that it would seem quite
1 unnecessary to lay any stress upon it;   But. what is the'situation?
All Western farmers can profit from the lessons learned from a seed drill
.���survey conducted by the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture last year.
In 2G townships samples of grain'were taken from the seed drills of '.the
farmers and tested as to grade. Out of each ten samples submitted in wheat,
-three graded No. 1 or No. 2, four graded No. 3, and three graded rejected.  _'.'
Thc oats being sown did not make as good a showing,���rlC-per ��� cent.
.graded No. 1 or No. 2, 16 per cent, graded No."3, and 68 per cent.-rejected.'
As in the case of wheat, the oats rejected was caused chiefly by the presence
-of. noxious weeds. In other words, only three out of every ten farmers .were
sowing good, clean seed wheat, and only 16 out of every 100 farmers were
sowing* good, clean seed. oats. Under such conditions, how can Western
farmers expect to obtain" large yields and a highly profitable return, from
���thcir labor?
i ��� ���' < * * .        _
Ninety-seven per cent, of the farmers in these townships were using
���cleaning-machinery of some kind, while 92 per cent, were fusing one or
another of the recognized methods of treating grain for smut. It was established that thc success, or non-successr in the operation of seed cleaning
machines did not lie so much in the make of the machine used as it did in
���the man operating it. Another factor, of course, was the extent of the
pollution pf the seed stock. The moral is, that farmers should at this time
��� overhaul their seed cleaning machines and make a close study of the." best
���methods of operation. Of major importance is the ���obtaining of the cleanest
possible seed to put through these machines.
There is a lot of truth in the claim of .the-Canadian Seed Trade Association that an invest ment ��� too often overlooked in these days of mining and
-oil speculation, is thc one of better seed. The assertion is made that one
���dollar invested in belter seed during the spring should return at,least six or
���seven dollars in the fall, and with right conditions and care it may return

Cood, clean seed will not in itself assure a heavy ancl profitable crop.-.-
there are many other-factors involved,���but.unless good, clean seed is sown
it is certain that such a crop can never be harvested.-It is necessary to begin
at the beginning, and the seed sown is tho beginning; whether it be of a crop
of hard wheat or nexious^weeds.
A Trying Time For People With
Weak Watery Blood
Canadian winter weather is a trying time for debilitated, run-down
peoplo. The close air of shut-up
houses, lack of out-of-door exercise,
the restricted diet of- the season, all
have their effect on weakened systems. There is always in such cases
the danger of severe colds, attacks of
influenza, or the still more dreaded
pneumonia. There is no other time
of year, when a bountiful supply of
rich, red blood is so necessary; ancl
the due way to keep the blood rich
and pure and ������"thus avoid winter trouble is througli the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. If, unfortunately,
you liave fallen a victim to influenza,
or other winter troubles, this same
medicine will restore your health and
strengtli. . Among those who .have
proved the value of Dr. Williams'.
Pink Pills is Miss Margaret Pearson.
R.R. No. 3, Chatham. Miss Pearson
had passed through a severe'-. attack
of influenza and says: "It-left me so
weak and run-down, that I could
scarcely walk. Anaemia set in and it
almost seemed as if I would not pull
through the winter, as I grew so weak
that.the least exertion would bring on
fainting spells. I was under medical
treatment, but it did not help me.
Theii one day in our local paper
I read an advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and decided to try
���.them. By the time I had used three
boxes I felt much better, and continuing the use of the pills it was not long
before I;.*'felt:'better than I had been
before the influenza attacked me. ; My
rapid recovery. surprised my friends,
and when asked "What ;did you do ?"
I would proudly say, "Not ray "doing,
but Dr.'Williams' Pink Pills.",To me,
at least, the pills have been-worth
their weight in gold."
As a precaution against winter ills
take Dr. AVilliams' Pink Pills now.

during the war. Our merchant
marine was ahvays in the front of the
fight on all the world's oceans, ancl its
losses were correspondingly severe. It
almost looked for a time as though
the casualties it met with would force
us to relinquish for whole generations
our prc-eininence as thc chief carriers
of. the world's trade. Yet less than
ten years after the elbse of the war
we won half the existing, tonnage, and
we arc building over three-fifths of
the new vessels.

"In Uie field crops of Saskatchewan

said the Hon. C. M. Hamilton, minister of agriculture in the provincial
government, speaking on the topic of
agricultural development in thc province to the Saskatoon Kiwanis club.
Hc told of having read in the newspaper that the valuation of thc ore in
the Flin-Flon Mining area had been
placed at $200,000,000. While he was
not attempting !o minimize the value

Biplane Built For
Experimental Purposes
New    British    Machine    To    Take
"Soundings" Of Upper Air
A new biplane, specially designed
for attaining high altitudes, is now at
Uie Royal Aircraft Establishment,
Farnborough, England, ln this machine it is hoped to ascend to a great
height and obtain "soundings" of the
upper air. One theory to bc tested is
that, at 10 or 12 miles above the earth
tliere are constantly moving currents
of air travelling at 200 miles an hour
and more. Such upper air tides as
these might have a revolutionary influence'on long-distance flying. Tho
British machine which is'to carry, out
this test is a Bristol biplane with an
air-cooled Jupiter engine specially
equipped for maintaining its power in
rarified air.
It will probably be piloted by
Flight-Lieut enant J. A. Gray, one of
the most expert of the Government
test pilots. For these high-altitude
flights pilots are being provided
with special air suits and helmets
like those of diving suits, the airmen peering out through small circular windows. In one new 'plane the
airmen will be enclosed in a glassy
windowed cabin, which will be automatically supplied with oxygen.

Another dream of the novelist lias
come true. Aeroplanes have becn used
in England to carry food to starving
people in villages isolated by storms
from ordinary communication witli
thc outside world. The aviatois were
unable to find any landing-place, so
the food was placed in bags ancl
dropped by way of parachutes. Tlie
manifold uses to whicli the aeroplane
can be put in time, of peace arc increasing hi number everyday. It ought
to be a. tremendous satisfaction to
those who have "striven' for years to
perfect control of the air that tlieir
efforts are being utilized,in theNcause

Young Chemist - Conceived' Idea
Of Match 100 Years Ago
Apropos the disposal, by Hon. JR. B.
Bennett, cf thc Eddy natch industry
to a British concern, it is interesting
to note that this merger takes place
when what was once regarded as the
lowly match industry i3 celebrating
its one hundredth anniversary. According to the anniversary newspaper
articles it was in .the peaceful little
town of Stcckton-on-Tee3 in tho yeai
1827 that a young chemise by the
name of-John Walker began lo dabble in tho strange mixture which
eventually was to result in the discovery of much better means fer obtaining a light than tho old-fuMhicned
tinder box. This young man was thc
industrial research specialist of his
clay, ancl devoted his attention to r.
preparation of chlorate of potash and
sulphide pf antimony, which he named J
"percussion powder," an:! r/iicii lie
was satisfied with it ho put it en sale
in hi shop. It ignited readily enough;
but it was not quite the thing he had
in mind. Soon afterwards, however, he
conceived the idea cf% attaching the
mixture to the end of a finy stick.
Here was the birth oT the match "and
thc early beginning's of a gigantic industry with factories U:e world over
and millions of dollars invested.

In glancing over the death notices

frequency with which thc words "suddenly" cccurs. In a column of twenty-five items headed "Deaths" the
word "suddenly" is printed nine times.
Whether or not others of Uie deaths
reported were sudden we cannot say,
but not improbably some of them not
so described were. Only in some of
ihe cases were the ages given of the
persons wlio had died suddenly. In
two of these the deceased were children, in one a young person 'of 3.1

' Story Of Famous Statue

Statue Of Venus Cost ��50 and Nearly
',    Brought On War
Venus de Milo, Uie world's most
beautiful and absolutely priceless
piece of sculpture, cost the French
nation only $50 a century ago", but
her preservation for thc art world
nearly caused a war,
This new story of the incomparable, armless goddess has just arrived in New York from Paris and
is retold by the Women's Home Companion.. The statue originally was dug
up on the Greek island of Milo more
than a century ago, so the story goes,
and when the news filtered to the
western world, English, Dutch and
other foreign expeditions were rushed
to thc island to obtain the prized
work of art. The French emissary
arrived first, however, with orders to
obtain the statue at any price.
. Thc islanders did not want lo sell
Venus as they planned to send her as
a gift to a Greek nobleman. The
Frenchman coolly gave an ultimatum,
however, that if the statue wero not
sold at once his country would send
ships and troops to occupy the island.
The Greeks capitulated smd Venus
was purchased for a sum equivalent
to less than ?50. The'statue wa.s transported at once to Paris, where it has
since been viewed in the Louvre by
art lovers lrom the entire world.

Ninety-five^ per cent, of tiie answers

Impressions, of India

Mussoorie,  India,
Oct. 15th, 1927.
"I   sliall  attempt  to   describe  this
'' place, tho' I know you can not imagine
what it is like.   First, there is not a
foot of level ground anywhere that has
not been graded to. make it so. Every
house foundation, every road and footpath has been graded or built up ot
rock. And there is plenty of rock.
There is practically no soil.*-White
rocks' stare' at you from everywhere
and yet there is a great deal of vegetation. -Everything is green and .very
pretty, especially now since the rams
are not long past, tho' I believe it is
nearly always green up here. There
are some evergreens here and much
other foliage. Dahlias grow wild���
not immense ones like the tame ones���
between two and three inches across
and of pratically all the hues that we
have at- home. They are not so full-
mostly single and- semi-double. They
are very pretty. Morning glories grow
wild. That is. the-pretty blue ones
that look like our tame ones at home.
There are many other pretty flowers
tOO.;  "-":
The train comes to Dehradun which
is 18 miles from here. We1 look almost
straight down on it from here. At
night the lights are very pretty. Then
there is 4,an auto road that comes 7
miles nearer to Rajpur. From there
everything" is brought up on the backs
of coolies. (Some people ride horses
up and:I have seen a few Jack mules).
I came up in a dandy, which is a chair
carried by four men, with an extra to
change. I had two extra���one to carry
my "Victrola and keep it dry under an
way. he did pretty well. One man
carried my big trunk on his back,- another the little one. It took .them
about five hours to come up. It cost
aboufc 15 rupees, which is about $5.00 to
.get myself and-my luggage here from
I have had several rickshaw rides.
It takes five fellows to run one of these
things. It is rather interesting to ride
in them!
', If you go to town you get a coolie to
carry your stuff- home���for you _ can't
get much iri a rickshaw and they all
want buckshish. Usually more than
you give-them. . i.A ''
Even tho' it is hard to get here
Mussoorie is not a small place.���> Houses
are just stuck into every nook that can
be made for them. There are three
little towns in a row. There are fine
stores too: Real English shops, Most
of them go down to the plains during
the winter, because this is a summer
resort for wealthy English. Of course
there are a few shops that stay open���
and the native shops stay.
I bought some lemons the other day
bigger than most of our big oranges at
home for an,anna, or about two cents
each. They grow up here. But there
are not as many kinds of fruit up here
as down on the plains.
.. The Anglo-Indian question is a
problem here���in all India I mean.
The are a people which %ave come
from the illegitimate union of the
British Tommy and the planters who
have come out here alone to make a
fortune with the lower class of Indians
or the; servant classes. They are
despised by the Indians and looked
down upon by the English. They
seem to have inherited all the moral
weaknesses that would come and are
generally unreliable. Very few of them
own up to' having any Indian blood-
even tho' their speech always (to me)
betrays them- and their color nearly
always. Yet you have to work for them
over and over even when you can not
depend on what they say. I can see
where it makes a great deal of difference in the way a school must be managed. They are not to be blamed but
pitied. It is a similar situation to our
Negro question in the East and South
only much worse.
The coolies go barefooted nearly all
of the time; ,and I don't'see how they
do it, for the rocks areso sharp, and
the roads are all rock. That is why
boys get their knees cut so often. You
can't fall down without getting hurt.
A little girl fell off a swing apparatus
they had up here and they brought her
down to me with the side of her head
covered with blood.   It wasn't much of
a cut, but just bled a lot.   Everything
Comparatively few people realize the
great importance of the fur industry-
yet from the establishment of the first
trading post in the wilds of Quebec,
fur trappers ancl traders have blazed
the trail for civilization. The Hudson's
Bay Co. was among the first to take
advantage of the great fur-producing
areas in Canada, but, as the country
became - settled, the natural crop
dimished. The problem became that
of ways and means to offset the shortage in the natural fur yield. It was
solved in P. E. I. by Robert Oulton and
Charles Dalton (now Sir Charles
Dalton), who established the first fur
farm known to history. They gave to
Canada one. of its greatest and most
profitable enterprises.
The breeding of fur-bearing animals
in captivity has long since emerged
from the experimental stage. Today
ifc is recognized as a commercial necessity. Otherwise the price of fur garments would be so great that only the
extremely wealthy would be able to
buy them. The United States .importations of raw pelts for one year
alone was $103,772,045, and Canada's
total production was $16,761,567. Prince
Edward Island, with a population of
80,000, derives over $3,000,000 annually
from its. fur industry.
British Columbia will, experts say,
exceed that figure. We have not only
an ideal climate for raising fur, but
the industry, being on a commercial
scale, development is quicker. Black
silver foxes are worth $1000 a pair in
the" open market. One pair should increase ..to 10 pairs in three seasons,
after which if all the increase is pelted
and pelts bring only $200, the annual
revenue would be $4,000. There are
fox ranches Jn British Columbia paying their owners 100 per cent, annually.
Success depends upqn starting with
the very best stock. The introduction
of the club plan of fox purchase has
entirely changed' the old-time exclusively rich man's monoply.' The
small investor purchases a unit in a
club, which in turn purchases a pair of
foxes that are proven breeders. The
club comprises ten units for clubs on
thc three-year plan and five units for
the two-year plan. Thus, on the three-
year plan, 10 rnembers own the first
pair of foxes, which,in the first breeds
ing season will have; say, three pups.-
The second breeding season should
bring the total to 11 foxes, and this,
on the. supposition that two females
only breed and one has four and the
other two pups. '���
The third breeding season should
bring the total such as will allot one
pair to each member or unit of the
Club, and allow one pair extra for upkeep, even if the breeding foxes only
double their numbers. ���Farm and
