Plant Food
X
Western Float
In 1914 the wheat production of
Canada amounted to ,15S,223,000
bushek���4he average yield per
acre being about about 15.37 bushels. Allowing two pounds of
straw as removed for every pound
of grain, and taking the average
analysis of wheat and straw, the
following amounts of plant-food
were removed from the soil during
that year by tbe wheat crop alone.
Nitrogen . 300,000,000 pounds
Phosphoric acid 95,000,000 ��'
Potash     .    .    137,000,000     "
While the virgin soil of Western
Canada and especially the very
deep rich soils of Manitoba, continue for years���and in some cases
for many, years���to produce heavy
yields eveu.under continuous cropping, they are by this process1
gradually depleted, aud as the
supply of plant food become reduced, the signs of exhaustion will
be manifested in decreasing returns. As a matter of fact this
depletion is already manifesting
itsrlf.
To remain fertility, the valuable constituents taken from tin-
soil must be returned to it. Of
these, as has beeu mentioned, the
mosfc important is phosphoric acid.
In 1913 thare were 16,720,400
acres of land under cultivation in
tbe three Prairie Proviaces and the
depletion per acre annually may be
taken as equivalent to the phosphoric acid contained in the 60
pounds of high grade phosphate
rock. At this rate 501.S00 tons of
high-grade phosphate rock would
be required each year simply to
offset the depletion of the land already under cultivation in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. ���

A report just issued by the Forestry Branch of the Department of

area of 9,500 squares miles of timber tributary to the district of
Edmonton containing according to
Government survey 3,727,000,000
feet of saw timber and over 10,-
000,000 cords of cord-wood. This
must be be interesting to people
who think of Alberta as "being entirely a prairie province.
Some idea of the value of the
big game resources of British Columbia is given by the fact that
at a single outfitting point this
season, big game hunters expended
over $18,000 for supplies and
wages. The hunters generally
appear to have been well satisfied
with their trips and the results of
their expenditure, and British Columbia as a game-hunting country
is steadily  growing in popularity.
Approximately 250 new retail
businesses were established on the
lines of the Canadian Pacific Rail
way in Western Canada during
1015. The settlement of agricultural districts and the increased
prosperity that has come to them
on account of greater settlement,
big crops and the general adoption of mixed methods has called
for many local dealers and tradesmen iu the towns and villages serving these rural districts.
The fisheries of Northern Alberta employed last year 947 men,
and tho production amounted to
over 886,000.00. The output for
1S10 season promises considerable
development. Alberta fish have a
high reputation on the markets of
the continent, the pure water and
very favorable conditions in the
Norther lakes producing an article
of exceptional merit. Many buyers from United States markets
now visiting Alberta to secure
their lisl. supply.
TiuK-vhave changed since a very
few  years  ago   when ' Alberta did
not  produce   enough  potatoes   to
meet its  own   requirements,   and
they were imported on some occasions from as far as Prince Edward
Island on the Atlantic coast.   That
was   nofe   due   to   any  failure of
potatoes in the province or any inability ��� to raise them, but rather to
the fact that farmers were devoting
their energies almost exclusively to
grain growing.    They  have  since
recognized that   there   are  many
possibilities  and  many  sources of
revenue on the farm  aside from
the growirg of wheat, oats, barley,
and flax, and the potatoe crop of
Aiuerta in 1915 was  probably  the
j largest-in its history.    A  market
was   sought   in the  eastern   pro-
j vincce, and shipments  which were
i made appear to have given entire
' Satisfaction.
Coyotes Hungry
The great increase in the number of coyotes in this district and
their distinct menace feo game generally is causing concern among
local sportsmen. Lasfe week three
deer were killed near Gilpin by
coyotes and it is believed thafe the
average of deer falling prey runs
high throughout the winter. Last
Friday, W. S. Thillipa scattered
five coyotes which were chasing a
deer and too the disabled animal
home, it was already so badly
eaten, however, that it died. Con-
stable Stanfield and Game Warden
Mader went down on Tuesday and
have set out poison in the hope of
doing away with some of the destructive coyotes. Ife was only a
couple of days before that a pack
of coyotes were seen hounding a
deer across the river and finally
killing ife on the bank opposite
Gilpin. The coyotes are also no
doubt responsible for the destruction of maDy quail, which is the
great farmers' friend among the
bird species, being particularly
destructive of insects and vermin.
The quail have been fed by the
game warden during the winter
and as they roost on the ground
they faU an easy prey to the
coyotes. A measure that would
accelerate the destruction of coyotes would be hailed by all sportsmen of the district, some 500 of
whom took ont licenses last fall.���
Grand Forks Gazette.
Ainsworth-Siocan Mines
M. J. Halpin, who wasiormerly
interested in the Whitewater lease
before that property was taken
over by John L. Retallack & Co.,
and who was in the grocery business in Vancouver after leaving
here, has decided to again cast his
lot in wifeh the silver-lead zinc section and has gone to wo��k on the
Crescent afe Coffee creek, and will
stay there pending fehe return of
spring, when he will take a Took
around in an endeavor to find a
"suitable leasing proposition.
Wifeh every passing day and
week tbe outlook for an extremely
busy summer in and around Kaslo
and throughout the Ainsworth and
Slocan mining districts grows increasingly brighter. Many deals
are on the hook; leases are being
eagerly sought after and it appears
easier to interest outside capital in
legitimate mining propositions.
A number of empties are spotted
at Retallack this week to receive
ore from the Bell mine, and as $
soon as the road is re-opened, cars
will be sent out regularly. The
ore will go to Oklahama. The
Bell has tho indication of becoming a noted . high grade zinc producer, and some claim that it will
become a second Inten.tate-Ca.-
lahan.
It is reported thafe the McCune
interests are contemplating continuing the United long tunnel at
Ainsworth by means of hand drilling, pending the resumption of an
air supply from the Cffee creek
compressor.
The general increase of interest
in the local mining possibilities is
indicated by the enquiries received
at the local government office,
there being a considerable quantity
of mail received each week with
payments of back taxes on mineral
claims and inquiries r*'g��i��lirg

Oatman, Arizona
From a one-mine, slow-going
camp of a few hundred souls, to a
district having three proven mines,
a half dozen on the verge of becoming proven property, and some
100 companies doing active development work on their various
groups of claims, is the record
made by Oatman, Mohaveconnty,
mining district the past year.
Where 12 months ago there was
a sleepy village supported almost
entirely by the Tom Reed Mining
Co., which gave employment to
some 200 miners, and a few hardy
prospectors scattered through the
surrounding hills, there is today a
boom town of 3,500 which is growing by leaps and bounds, and an
estimated population of 5,000
within the district.
As yet, this is a camp of no regrets. The time has been too
short, and the development too
much in its infancy, for it to have
produced any losers. Seemingly,
everyone is ahead of the game to
date. Stocks that are selling up to
��4 were purchased, in the main, at
round 10 and 25 cts.
Real estate values have naturally doubled and trebled since the
boom started a year ago, and several small fortunes have already
been reaped by the early purchasers of both shares and soil.
Where two stores found it difficult to make it pay last February,
there are 20 today, all doing a
thriving business. Hotels and lodging houses have had a mushroom
growth, and still accomodation are
unequal to the demand. There
are 3G auto stage lines running
into the camp daily, each bringing
its quota of newcomers. New
structures are going up on every
hand and the landscape is dotted
with tents and "shacks." Being
situated in a gulch, between two
sharp hills, with the main shafts
of the two big mines but 700 feet
apart, blocking the principal street
at either end, the town could not
expand to absorb the inrush, and
as a result five separate townsites
have been laid out in the immediate vicinity, all of which are rapidly upbuilding and are now included in the general environs of
Oatman.
And all this has been brought
about because a practical miner
Was dissatisfied with the deductions
and Inferences of the mining engineers and persisted in Uncovering a
bonanza, where only barren ground
was said to exi__t.
Discovery of gold in thafe portion of the country tributary to
Oatman dates back to 1863, when
Mohave county was a part of
Donna Ana county, New Mexico.
In that year John Moss, one of the
pioneer prospectors of Arizona,
while prospecting the Silver Creek
hills, uncovered a stringer of high-
grade, in a 10 ft hole in which he
took 2 tons of ore that netted him
��114,000. after paying shipping
charges to to the Selby Smelter at
San FraDcisco. Then, the "glory
hole" having been exhausted, the
property was practically abandoned. Sporadic efforts were made in
later years at working  this and
other properties in the district,
but with little success, the attempts being registered as failures
after several hundred feet of shaft-
sinking had revealed nothing.
It was not until the Tom Reed
mine was located in 1900 that the
first real mine of the district was
brought into being, and ife passed
through a stormy period before
becoming a dividend payer, being
sold at sherriff sale for $30,000
after the original company bad
foundered on the banks of bankruptcy. The new owners had fehe
courage of their convictions, however, and at deeper levels uncovered a body of ore that has enabled them to return e total of
S2,5S3,221 iu dividends within the
past few years. 1914 it paid 04
per cent on its 909,555 shares on'-
standing, par SI, and lasfe year
paid $327,43S, dividends being
suspended iu October to permit of
additional exploratory and development work.���Mining World.
Some Crop Averages
The board of trade at Lefch-
bridge, Albrta, conducted an investigation into grain yields on 23
farms selected at Random in the
Lethbridge district, and found the
following averages: Spring wheat
on summer fallow, 50 bushels;
spring wheat on spring plowing,
38 bushels; spring wheat, general
average, 44 bushels; oats, general
average, 77-i- bushels; barley, general average, 56 bushels.

e Does Not Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad !"
If there be, go mark him well,
For him 110 bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who never asks for trade,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
Arid patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose.
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise."

Dear Mr. Editor.
If permissable, I would like,
through the medium of your paper,
to remark, that at the time
the Patriotic subscription list
was being circulated, the privilege
granted to residents, professional
and others, should have been
granted to the men working in this
camp. In one instance, they were
permitted to name the amount of
their contribution, according to
their means, but in the other, it
waB a day's wage or nothing, and
this, notwithstanding, that some of
the residents were on salary during the depression, while the workers were idle for the best part of a
year, and are now, and will be doing for some time to come, paying
for the necessaries of life which
were consumed by their families
during the hard times.
Last December Greenwood was
asked to contribute $3,000, and it
was remarked that they would furnish $9,000.
According to lists published up to
date, who is going to provide this
sum, if not the dinner pail brigade,
and if so, why were they not permitted to give according to their
means. Perhaps the residents
who are tapering off, intend to
make a spurt and get up in line,
bnt it seems they need a little push
from behind, as I notice their is
quite a little difference as time
goes on, and some are conspicuous
by their absence.
Although the workers are doing
the big thing, they were not even
asked if they would like representation on the committee handling affairs.
Some of our citizeus are doing
fine, but others need to get^their
second wind or they will be still
running when the race is over.
This is not meant to be any reflection on the officials of the Company we are working for, as they
are trying to do whatsis right, or
what the influence of public opinion tells them is right.
The fact of the matter is this, a
man who is thoroughly patriotic
and willing to give, and can't very
well afford, will deny his family
some other luxury in order to do
so, but the one who is able to,
but not willing, is able to get away
without doing so, as long as we
are carrying on a business like this
in a voluntary manner.
If this was under a compulsory
taxation plan, there are lots of
men of my own calibre, who would
be ready and willing even if it was
four days pay instead of one, but
at present, it is unfair to the man
who will, and easy for the man
who won't.
In conclusion I will say, that
this is not merely an idle kick,
but "it is by honest difference of
opinions, that we arrive at sound
conclusions and correct judgment,"
and my opinion is, that it should
be under compulsion, bo that every
person who obtains his livelihood
from the resources of the country,
directly or indirectly, would be
compelled to contribute his little
mite to the protection of that
country.
Yours etc.,
Wm LAKELAND.
