THE BIG STORE
ROCK CREEK
This store is making Rock Creek famous,
and its name is a household word in the Boundary. Its customers appreciate a live store where
~ the cobwebs never nestle. We feed the hungry,
clothe the naked, and shoe the barefooted, provided they can produce the collateral. Our butter will melt in your mouth, and clothed in one
of our new spring suits, a Piute Indian looks
like, an Apollo.

Missed Holes
There are -different methods of
treating missed holes. Some claim
that the hole should be picked out;
others have a rule that another
hole sbaif be" drilled close to the
missed hole and blasted, so as to
put off the missed one. One company causes all work in thafe particular place to be suspended until
the foreman comes raround; he
usually being an old miner is
allowed to use his own judgement
in the matter. Possibly the best
way to treat a missed hole is not feo
pick ife oat, or drill another one by
the side of it, but to set up another
primer and blast ife on top of the
missed hole. If any of the collar
of the missed hole remains, the
primer is placed on the tamping of
the missed hole, and the explosion
is almost sure to explode the missed
hole. In fact, it is so seldom fehat
this method fails to explode, fehe
eharge thafe it is safer than other
methods of treating a missed hole.
With respect feo blasting holes,
some old-feime miners would never
set up fuses from a coil of fuse unless they cat off a length equal to
what they uspd in the hole, life" it
and timed how loDg it took to burn
through. Whether it was regular
in its bnraing or not, this was
done with every coil thafe was
opened. By fehis method about 5
per cent, of the coil wae burnt for
inspection purposes; bufe the - idea
was ' 'safety first.''

587S2,
When th6 editor "of the Toronto
Globe undertakes io write an editorial on the "A-lberta Oil Field"
he should have a reliable Canadian
oil man at his side to do the promoting. Favorable expressions on
oil finds by a leading journal are
dangerous and should not be treated lightly if a reputation for truth
is desired to be maintained.
We have several men in Ontario
who know all that is necessary
about the drilling developments in
Alberta and we suggest that some
of them be interviewed by the
Globe.
It looks to us as if a clever oil
promoter made a scoop on the
Globe editor. We were approached
a few weeks ago on Alberta oil, no
doubt by the same man, but turned
him down. We know the oil business and the Globe man does not.
The Globe owes the innocent investor a true statement regarding
Alberta oil seepages, and no time
should be wasted in making an in
vestigation and a public presents
tion of facts as found. Summer is
in the near future and the drilling
rigs must be kept going or the oil
game is up for Alberta. The west
has been sucked dry of money for
this purpose, and a scoop of the
innocents in Ontario is in preparation, and the Globe has undertaken
to pave the way for the chief promoters through its editorial columns.
There is not a single known oil
field in Canada today of commercial value oulside of the oil fields
in Western Ontario, and we challenge the Globe or any individual
to disprove this statement. It is
time for truth and not lies.
We have little doubt but that
valuable oil finds will be made
in time in the future in Western
Canada, but not in what is known
as the Calgary district. Petrolia
men knew years ago of these much
talked of oil seepages in the foothills, and placed no value on them,
on account of the covering necessary to permanency being absent.
We would like to speak favorably
of any effort that is being made to
find oil in Canada, but in the face
of our knowledge * of the business
we cannot endorse repeated efforts
in a district where nothing but disappointments is in store for the
poor man who furnishes the money.

Patriotisms
Pin your Faith
The one outstanding feature of the world's farming is that there will soon be a great shortage
of meat supplies. Save your breeding stock. They are today Canada's most valuable asset. If you
sacrifice your breeding stock now, you will regret it in the near future.
Plan to increase your live stock. Europe and theUnited States, as well as Canada, will pay higher
prices for beef, mutton, and bacon in the very near future. Remember that live stock is the only true
basis of economic and profitable fanning. The more grain you grow, the more stock you can carry.
The more stock you keep, the more fertilizer for your fields.   Mixed farming is real farming, not speculating.
BEEF. In ten years the population
of Canada increased 34 per cent,
while the number of cattle increased
only 17. Moreover, the city and town
population, which may be looked
upon as essentially the consuming
element, increased by 62.2 per cent,
while the rural population, or the
producing element, increased by only
17 per cent.
Study carefully the adjoining table
which was prepared before the war.
What does it mean?
Only one of these countries increased its cattle more
than its people in the past ten years. And, in it (Australia)
in 1914 there was a tremendous loss of live stock through
an unprecedented drought���a fact which the table does
not show.    Do you need any stronger argument than

this, table that there is bound to be
an increasing demand for beef?' Add
to this condition, the destruction of
live stock of all kinds.-breeding stock
and young stock included, in the
several war zones.
Beef is the most important item
in the British soldier's rations. He is
allowed V& lbs. of this every day.
The daily demand for meat by the
British, French and German soldiers
is enormous.
The war has merely hastened
the meat shortage of the world. When it is over, the
farmer with live stock will continue to profit in the world's
markets, and, in addition to having helped feed our soldiers
at the front, will be in a position to reap a further reward
for having stayed with the live stock industry. .
Sheep, Swine, Horses, Dairy Produce
SHEEP. Canadian farmers have
been losing great opportunities in
sheep raising and sheep feeding.
The demand for wool is increasing.
Hundreds of thousands of sheep
have been slaughtered to provide
winter clothing for the soldiers of
the different armies. Australia's
losses, through drought, in 1914, were
very heavy. Canada has been importing frozen mutton from New
Zealand. In view of these conditions,
wool and mutton should prove very
profitable for Canadian sheep raisers
during the next few years.
SWINE. Through the indiscriminate sale of swine in the Canadian
West in the past three months, the
supply in 1915 promises to be little
more than half of 1914. Add to this
the fact, that the British soldier is
allowed % lb. of bacon per day, and
that sausage is the principal meat food
of the German soldier, and you will
understand the outlook for the future.
Those who stay steadily with swine,
year in and year out, make money.
Those who   rush in and rush out
Canadian

Agriculture,
Ottawa, Canada
generally lose money. "Buy when
others are selling, sell when others
are buying,", applies to live stock as
well as to Wall Street stocks.
HORSES. The wastage of horses
during the war has been enormous.
The estimated life, at the front, of the
cavalry horse is seven days, of the
artillery horse thirty days. It is true
the loss has been among light horses
for which there has been a declining
demand in recent years. But with
thousands of such animals sent from
this country, the tendency will be to
liven up the whole horse industry.
The demand of the future will be for
high-grade animals and farmers
should be more careful than ever in
breeding. Use only stallions enrolled
and inspected under your Provincial
Enrolment Act.
DAIRY. Milch cows increased in
Canada from 2,408,677 in 1901 to
2,594;179 in 1911. This increase did
not amount to 8% and was less than
one-quarter of the population increase of Canada. At the same time,
the; per capita consumption of milk
by Canadians increased 30%. Is
there any wonder we had to import
7,000,000 lbs. of butter from!: New
Zealand?
The exports of Canadian cheese
have been steadily declining for-ten
years. Look at the market prices
today. Do they not suggest the
advantage of increased production?
Through cow-testing, selection, and
better feeding, the average annual
production per cow in Canada did
increase from 2,850 lbs. per cow in
1901 to 3,805 lbs. in1911, but this is
only a beginning. Last year one cow
in Canada produced 26,000 lbs.
The dairymen of Denmark who
supply Great Britain with butter and
bacon are not satisfied unless their
herds average 10,000 lbs. per cow.
Let Canadian dairymen work to increase the productiveness of the
milch cow. Breed for milk, v Test
your cows. Save your calves. Select
your milkers. Feed for yield. Read
the Agricultural articles in the daily
and weekly press-and in-the-Agricultural papers, and the Government
bulletins on dairying.
