It consists of an immense collection
of utensils and articles now on sale
in Germany for thc purpose of fomenting hero-worship of Hindenburg.
An article in the Berliner lllustrite
Zeitung, which pictures some of the
horrors, states that the demand for
them is so great that an entire industry for their manufacture has
come into existence and is flourishing. Some of the articles on exhibition are:
Petticoats embroidered with designs of Hindenburg.
Money boxes, in which coins arc

Pincushions, in which pins niay be

Estimate German Losses in War to
Date at 5,000,000
German writers estimate the grand
total of Germans killed and prisoners, adding those dying of illness and
wounds and casualties in colonial and
naval fighting at J,000,000.
Karl Bleisteru, the German military
writer, declares in Neu Europa that
German losses on the west front between August, 1914, and August, 1917,
totalled 2,604,296. On the east front
he said the total of killed and prisoners was 1,484,550.
German writers -stimatc the German losses between August, 1917, and
January, 1918, as 367,450 killed and
taken prisoners "on both fronts."

Striking Facts
On Wool Supply
The Total Wool Supply of the World
Is Only 2,700,000,000 Pounds
Since 1900 thc United States has
lost between 13,000,000 and 15,000,000
sheep, and if their value was turned
into wool and mutton it would
amount to just $15,000,000.
The armies now at war arc using
at the rate of 2,200,000,000 pounds of
wool annually.
The total wool supply of the world
is only 2,700,000,000 pounds. .
More than 3,000,000 sheep in Europe havc been killed for meat during
the war.
There are no sheep left in Germany
worth talking about, very few in
Turkey, and iu all the Balkan States
the sheep havc been greatly reduced.
England's wool clip was decreased
one-third; France has lost one-third
of its sheep stock, and thc same with
Austria, which leaves Russia as the
only European country that has not
suffered severely, having more sheep
than any other country in thc world,
and transportation between Russia
and this side of the water is rattier
difficult just now.
South American sheep stocks are
decreasing rapidly, also South African, while Ncw Zealand is only holding her own as far as sheep stocks
arc concerned.
There will not be more than thirty
million shearing sheep in thc United
States next spring, giving them 200,-
000,000 pounds���their needs being
750,000,000 pounds or a shortage of

"The Last
Quarter of an Hour'
A Tenacity That Rises Above Every
Depression and Returns Blow
for Blow
The one phrase of thc war, thc
words that best sum up our battle
and our task, the words to save us
from both elation and despair, fell
recently from the lips of Premier
Clemenceau. "Wc shall win the war
in the last quarter of an hour," he
There is 1.0 easy victory in this
picture. It looks to a desperate
struggle of giant losses, of swaying
battle lines, of advances and retreats, of bright mornings and dark-
nights, of days and weeks of yielding strategic ground, of mishaps and
local disaster. It looks as well to an
unfaltering will, a tenacity that
knows no defeat, that rises above
every depression and returns blow
for blow until, there in the last
round, battered, gasping, we still hit
���and win.
The phrase is go ���ad medicine for
easy optimists and easy pessimists
alike. Wait for the last quarter of
an hour. In the meantime, fight,
fight, fight!���New  York Tribune.
Baby's teething time is a time of

The little ones become cross; peevish; their little stomach becomes deranged and constipation and colic

This can be done by the usc of

Millions of Disease Germs Found in

One noon last summer while eating my lunca preparatory to sallying
forth to top it off with a cool and
bracing pineapple frappe my eye
rested^ on thc page of the newspaper
in which my repast had been wrapped. So does fate work. I brushed
aside the bit of butter that had blotted out what seemed to be an interesting part of thc article, and I read:
"An examination under the microscope of one carelessly washed soda
water glass revealed in thc thick
coating which covered it both inside
and outside lore than twenty thousand human cells and minute particles of skin. Clinging to a single
one of these cells there were counted
150 germs. The total germ population of the glass was estimated at 3

I stopped. And I stood there as

Shells of Long Range Gun
Weights 200 Pounds    and   Contains
Less Than Twenty Pounds
.   . ; of Explosives
The calibre of the shells that are
fired into Paris by thc German long-
range guns is 8,08 inches and .the
length;.'of-'the'shell is tweuty inches.
L'Hotnmc Libre, Premier Clcmcii-
ceau's newspaper, stales. The. shell
weighs 200 pounds, and contains less
than twenty pounds  of explosives.
The shell is provided with a fuse
protected by a threaded stopper and
has a diaphragm inside which di
vides the shell into two compartments of unequal size. Two holes in
the diaphragm afford communication
between the two pockets.
These    facts are accepted    as    aii
explanation of     the    two explosions
.which on occasions have followed in
quick succession,  and which  lead to
the belief that,two...guns .were firing.
The Spirit of France
Away From the Menace of the Hun
War Machine
Even in Paris, thc centre of. that
glorious spirit of.a France unconquerable, it seems that there is an occasional nervous otic who shakes
with the far-olt rumble of the guns
and wonders if hc had not belter be :
moving, farther away from the men- j
ace of tlie Hun war machine. Such
a one recently said tremblingly to
the Minister of Marine, Georges Ley-
gues, in thc chamber of deputies:
"So the situation is really grave?"
"Doubtless," was the reply.
"It is said that the government is
thinking of leaving Paris?" queried
the spineless one.
"That is correct," said the minister
of marine.
"Would it go to Bordeaux?" asked
the trembling one.
"Certainly not.. If wc leave Paris
wc will not go to Bordeaux, but to
Amiens," was the reply of the minister of marine which left his questioner gasping. ��� Belleville Intelligencer.

Spend or Die!
The Price Which We are Paying to
Save Our Country
In the house of commons, Mr.
Bonar. Law moved a vote of credit
for ��600,000,000.. That, to quote Mr.
Hopkinson, is "a bit of money." It
is so. much, that the ordinary man,
used to counting the change of. a
pound, cannot realize what it means.
This gigantic vote is required to meet
a daily war expenditure of nearly
seven millions. This is the . price
���which wc arc paying to save biir
country and-.our. families from the
Germans. 'Pjjje price is heavy, but, as
the. Rev. W. B. Hanks said yesterday: "If they got_ here you would
have as much use for your money as
Dives had for his in hell." It is no
good, therefore, guessing at the ultimate economic effect of our tremendous spending. We have to spend or
die. Freedom, social progress, decent labor conditions, all will go unless we smash the power of Prussian
militarism.���London Daily Express.

How a Boy or Girl Can Make a Start
in Poultry Line
Induce some farmer to loan you a
broody hen or two. Go to some
breeder of pure bred fowls and get
some hatching eggs. Several breeders will give you the.eggs gratis, reserving the right to pick out one or
two of the b .t of your flock in the
fall paying you 25 cents pcr pound
for them.
Get busy at once as the early
chicks arc. the most valuable. If you
do not care to wait, to hatch your
own chicks, you can buy day-old
chicks from some breeder. To care
for these you will have to construct
a brooder. If you arc living in town
and have electric light it is an easy
matter. If you will hang an electric
bulb 16 candle power carbon in a
small box about 10 inches deep so
that it will bc about, three inches
above the heads of the chicks, and
cover the box partly with a board, it
makes a fine brooder. By this method the chicks can be fed at night,
which is a great help when they are
very young.
Allow about ten square inches of
floor space per chick, and get a box
to suit the size of the flock. After
two weeks, they will require more
space. The temperature in the box
at the level of the chicks' heads
should he about 95 degrees for the
first week and 5 degrees lower each
week thereafter till 75. degrees is
reached. Get the little fellows put
on thc ground when about two weeks
old, if possible.
Do not feed chicks a thing till they
arc 48 hours old.    Many chicks    are
killed each season by feeding before
thc yolk is absorbed.   The first  feed
can be hard boiled egg, shell and all,
mixed thoroughly with  finely  crush-
, ed crackers.7 Bread soaked in    milk
and squeezed partly dry again is also
good.   Give  them   some  coarse  sand
or chickrgrit, also some finely. gran-
i ulatcd charcoal. Grated raw potatoes,
j lawn clippings, or lettuce is good for
| grccti .food. ;��� Begin using some good
���commercial .hick food when they are
j about ten days old..   Feed very little
j at a   time,  but   several  times    daily
j and late in the evening. .Keep them
i just a little hungry    all    the    time.

ThesFarmer's Garden
Greater, Returns Than the Same Area
of Ground Devoted to Ordi-
xi .-X nary Farm Crops
XX"It is impossible," says a farming
authority, "to estimate the value of
the vegetables that may "be grown in
a garden on the farm." It is safe
to say that a home garden, properly
tended, will produce far greater re-
'tunis thin thc same area of ground
devoted- to ordinary farm crops.
While it is true that fresh vegetables form a comparatively small
portion of the diet in many farm
houses, it is equally true that there
is great satisfaction to all concerned
to have a good supply of vegetables
available for table use, in their season. Ask your food controller.' Vegetables and fruits contain most of the
essential salts required by the human
system so they combine medicine
with food. Home-grown vegetables
are preferable to those bought on
the market for good hygienic reasons, .veil known to those who have
to buy, or think they must.

Too Little Exercise
'HE necessity of using medicine to regulate the action
of the liver, kidneys and
bowels is largely due to the
changed conditions of life during recent years.
Our fathers lived a life of activity in the open air. If they ate
heartily they had sufficient exercise to keep the liver and bowels
active and to thereby remove the
poisonous waste from the body.
To-day we get too little exercise
and too little fresh air. The food we
eat. is more concentrated and artificial. The result is much discomfort
and the development of serious disease from constipation of the bowels,
and torpid condition of the liver.
Kidney disease, rheumatism, lumbago, backache���all have their begin
ning in the inactivity of the liver
and bowels.
The great secret of keeping in
health is to look to the regularity of
these filtering and eliminating:
organs, and Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills is the most satisfactory medi-'
cine obtainable for this purpose,
If you read the reports appearing
in this paper, from time to time, from
persons who have used this treatment with good results, you will find
that Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
are effective where ordinary medicines fail. This success is due to
their combined action on the liver,
kidneys and bowels. One pill a dose
at bedtime as often as is necessary to
keep the bowels in healthful action,
will also ensure the regularity of the
liver and kidneys and thereby keep
the blood pure and the system free
from the accumulating poisons which
cause disease and suffering.

About Lotteries
Once,  It Is Said, They Drew   Lots
For a Crown
Lotteries havc been turned to account in many ways, and not only did
a lottery enable Zeppelin to carry on
his experiments toward that system
of frightfulness associated with his
name but the British Afuscum was
built out of a  lottery also.
Very few people in this country
are aware that the royal house of
Britain was established and continued by drawing lots���tt distinct form
of lottery. At Ccllc, in 1592, William
the Pious of Hanover had seven sons,
like thc man in thc faify tale, and
they agreed, in accordance with the
wishes of their father, and for the
interests of the house, that only one
of thcin should marry to continue
the succession. Six silver balls and
a gold one were placed in thc reputed
helmet of their ancestor, William the
Lion, and drawn for. The prize f��H

thc seven sons, who became the
grandfather of George I of England,
and the great-great-great-grcat-grcat-

Going to March to Berlin if It Takes
5,000,000 Men to Do It
It may lake all America to win the

crisis comes. This country doesn't
entertain for one moment any doubt
as to what the result will be. It realizes its power and will make it
count when Germany seems to gam
a point. Why, we haven't begun to
fight yet. We are still getting ready
and are yet far short of our determination to get ready. We arc going to
march to Berlin if it takes 5,000,000
men to do it, and wc will provide
them all they need to cat while on
the way. "'his republic is getting
more in earnest every day, and il
will keep on until Jhc kaiser and his
cruel frightfulness are driven back
to the shades of Prussia to stay and
rot. That is thc sort of determination which rules this republic, and it
is growing stronger every day. We
may suffer some reverses, but they
will cut no figure in the final solution.���Ohio State Journal.

Not Until They Got Acquainted That
the Process of Liking Began
Of the hundreds of American officers who havc passed, through the

line, or are on their way through, I
have not heard of one who has not
come out of his experience with a
better liking for the Britisher. Not
all of them cheer for their hosts, but
as a broad proposition, they have
found thc JBriton a bully sort. Thc
Briton declares thc American a most
likable chap. Neither thought in advance they could ever learn to like
thc other. It was not until they got
acquainted that the process of liking
began. It is still individual liking���

places with nothing particular to do,
i please take notice. Loafing is now
illegal. Thc recent order in council
declares "all persons domiciled in
Canada shall, in absence of reasonable grounds to the contrary,, engage
in useful occupations."
At this stage of the world's history, when every man available is
necessary to the safety of the country, it seems a remarkable thing that
there are any of the class above referred to left in Canada, but apparently there are. Poolrooms, cabarets,
picture shows report a thriving business. The hobo is still a frequent
visitor on his aimless way back and
forth. There arc still "sports" at
large with nothing to do but smoke
cigarettes and go to ball games and
places of light amusement. Quite
rightly, the government has made it
illegal for these persons to waste
their time and their strength on cigarettes and gentle amusements, tango
teas and pinochle in the barn. They
are now ordered to get to work, ana
if _they do not work as free men, they
will have to work as prisoners, and
work at "hard labor."
In this connection it is interesting
to compare thc useful work performed by shoe shiners, soda fountain dispensers, theatre ushers, ribbon salesmen and_ such useful citizens as compared with the tramps and thc
"sport" who lives on his wits. It is
doubtful if there is much to really
choose between these two classes, so
far as economical results to society
are concerned. The man that Cleans
your boots might very well be employed at hoeing potatoes, leaving
his customer to spare five minutes of
his valuable time to clean his own
boots. The man who has so little
manhood in him as to bc content to
spend his days selling baby ribbon in
a departmental store, would achieve
an improved manhood driving a
team on a farm, if he could bc trusted   to   do   so,   or   helping  with    the
Bothnia. There is no doubt, however, that if German., could succeed
in making the Baltic a mere clau-
sum, a shrewd blow might be dealt
at the most ancient of our English
trades. Thc allies, however, _ havc a
very strong economic position as
against Germany, and should be able
effectually to counter check and such
designs as these. Certainly Sweden may bc expected to say a word,
perhaps a strong word, about this
conversion of thc Baltic into a German lake.���Westminister Gazette.

Depends Upon   Keeping   the   Blood
Rich, Red and Pure
To be able to cat what you want
and to digest it properly is a priceless
blessing.    Good digestion is not   appreciated until you lose it. Then you
cannot afford    to    experiment,     for
strong medicines are hard on    weak
stomachs.      If you  have  indigestion
do  not be persuaded into    believing
you can cure yourself by thc usc of
pre-digested foods or so-called stomach tonics.   There is no tonic for the
stomach that is not a tonic for every
part of the body.    It is through the
blood that thc stomach gets its power to assimilate and digest food, and
as the blood  goes  to  every  part of
the body and improvement in its condition not only results in    strengthening the stomach but every organ in
the  body.    Rich  red  blood  is  absolutely  necessary  to  good    digestion.
If your stomach.is weak and you arc
troubled with  sour    risings    in    the
throat, a feeling of pressure     about
the heart, or nausea after eating, try
the tonic treatment with    Dr.    Williams' Pink Pills.    So many dyspeptics  have  been  cured by  this  medicine that every sufferer from stomach
trouble should try it.    You will soon
know the joy of good digestion and
enjoy better health in other \va3rs if
you give this medicine a fair    trial.
Mr.   Fred. J.  Kendall, Darlin    Ave.,
Toronto,    says:���"For   upwards    of
five years I waj a great sufferer from
indigestion, which   gradually    undermined my general health, leaving me
in a weak and anaemic condition.    I
spent considerable money  with    one
doctor and anothc.-. but failed to receive  any  lasting benefit,  and     had
become quite discouraged.    One day
my wife urged me  to try Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills  but  I   thought    it
would bc thc same old story.     But
she had so much faith in them that
she got me a box, and to please her
I  began  taking  them.    By  the  time
the box was Inished,  T noticed     a
slight improvement, and I continued
taking them and soon found   myself
gaining.   I could sleep better and my
appetite improved,  without  the _ distressing symptoms that had previously followed eating.    I think I    took
in all about a dozen boxes, and  today I am a stronger man than I ever
was in my life.    When  I  began the
use of thc pills I weighed 143 pounds
while now I weigh 167.    You    may
use this letter as yoii choose, hoping
it may reach some poor discouraged
sufferer as I was."
You can get Dr. Williams' . Pink-
Pills through any dealer in medicine
or by mail at 50 cents a box or six
boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockviile, Ont.

Sea Control Means Victory
Command of the  Sea Upon   Which
the Existence of the British
Empire Depends
_ Germany has raised about her _a
ring of implacable enemies upon thc
sea, whose strci.gth continues to increase, and who arc pledged utterly
to destroy German sea-power. Give
them time enough and they will certainly do it. Now the position of
Germany is that is shc won thc war
on land she would still bc beaten at
sea. And, deprived of the usc of the
sea, of what use would bc her territorial gains? They would be valuable, but they would not serve to restore the oversea commerce upon
which depends her ability to trade.
The rulers of Germany suffer under
no illusions on thc subject. .Their
dread lest the German people should
learn the true state of affairs is so
extreme t,hat they are compelled to
exaggerate the losses inflicted by
submarine warfare, the exaggeration
on one occasion reaching 70 per cent,
error. So far as this country is concerned, it is our part, first and last,
to regain and to maintain that command of the sea upon which thc existence of thc British empire depends, which is only now disputed by
the pirate submarine, and for which
no sacrifice can bc refused.���London

The policeman drew himself up,

Canada's butter exports have been
ou the downward grade for a number of years -and while in 1906 her
net exports amounted to 33,888,074
pounds in 1916 they had dropped to
6,993,100 pounds.
On the other hand, Britain's normal imports of butter amount to
to 452,795,264 pounds and her shortage due to thc war is 209,148,784
As much butter as possible should
be made on the farms of Canada.
Every pound that thc farmer's wife
can make will find a ready market
and if the output were increased a
hundredfold it would still bc sold. _
Butter-making now should be one
of the most profitable sources of income on the farm and it is one in
which the farmer's wife is particularly interested. A considerable portion of the butter niade in Canada
is churned right on the farms. The
trouble is that in many cases there
is a lack of proper equipment with
the result that the butter does not
come up to the standard of creamery butter and therefore docs not
fetch as good a price. The creamery butter-maker is supplied with a
full outfit of utensils and apparatus
which enable him to recover thc
maximum quantity of butter from
the cream. On the other hand, the
farmer's wife is . frequently handicapped for lack of equipment.
VVilh the great demand for butter
that now prevails it would be a profitable investment on the part of the
farmer and his wife to get the most
up-to-date and scientific equipment
for their butter-making. As time
goes on the market will widen for
thc milch cows of Europe arc becoming scarcer all the time and
much dependence Will be placed on
the North American continent for a
supply of butter.: In any event,
whether the butter-making equipment on the farm is up-to-date or
old-fashioned, thc output should not
bc allowed to flag. The scarcity of
fats is among the most serious of
food problems in  Europe.

Fair Profit on Wheat
Fanners from 23 states meeting in
Washington to attend_ the agriculture department's advisory committee conference, protested against the
congressional proposal for $2.50
wheat, and declared that there is a
fair profit iu wheat at $2.20. It is
not only a fine exhibition of patriotism on thc part of these American
farmers, but it's a keynote for thc
nation in fixing of war-time orofits.
Anything more than a fair profit on
war necessaries is war profiteering.���
Winnipeg Tribune.
Corn in Plenty
Ship Over All the  Wheat There Is
and Rely Upon Corn
Canadians probably do not realize
the extent to which wheat is being
saved in the United States. It is not
a case over there of an occasional
wheatless meal; but every effort is
being made to induce the nearest
possible approach to total abstinence. In a recent statement by thc
federal food board, the American
public was urged to depend wholly
upon corn, which is now available in
large quantities. "It is believed that
during the last eighteen months the
milling capacity for corn flour has
increased 500 pcr cent." thc board declares. "If the American pcopls
would give up wheat flour entirely
there would be an abundance of corn-
meal, with what corn flour is available, to care for all our needs until
after the next harvest." Corn cannot be successfully shipped to Europe for consumption by thc pcopl��
and the armies; therefore, the proposal of the U. S. food board is, in effect, to ship over all the wheat there
is and rely upon corn. While there
is corn in plenty there will be no
famine in thc land.

Convinced That He Was Chasing  a
During a pitch black night a Canadian officer, feeling his way back to
his lines, slipped into a mine crater.
He didn't go right down, or he wopld
havc been drowned in slush and
slime. As he was trying to. get back
hc was aware that hc was not alone.
On the edge of the crater���probably
forty feet ih diameter-���he could just
make out a man's figure in front of
him. As he crept forward thc other
man did thc same. Soon thc officer
was convinced that lie wes chasing a
German and opened fire with a revolver. Round and round the circular,
slimy slope they rushed, until at kist
the .Canadian officer slipped dangerously and .uttered the usual swear
words. Immediately a good Canadian accent rang out from the other
side, "Who thc ������ arc.you?"    "Oh,
I'm So-and-So, of thc ��� regiment!"
These two men from the same regiment, quite good friends, had been
chasing each ohtcr around that

American Meat Eater
Gradually the   Idea   of    the    Light
Breakfast Being Inculcated Into the Popular Mind
Thc American is intemperate in
thc use of meat. At the breakfast
table of the country hotel where the
American plan still obtained, the
steak found, until Mr. Hoover intervened, a place among thc many
dishes that confronted the guest. The
hotel oft proclaims the private
household, and thc presence of a
steak at a country hotel breakfast
was doubtless in response to the demand of those accustomed to such
fare in their own homes. And it was
not so long ago that a similar breakfast was served in city hotels conducted on the American plan. But
gradually the idea of the light breakfast has been inculcated into the
popular mind and fruit and eggs, perhaps with bacon, have supplanted the
breakfast board groaning with calorics.
Unless a person is engaged ia
heavy manual labor, meat should not
be eaten more than once a day, and
never should be eaten more than
Uyicc a day. As Dr. Landis says, a
piece of meat thc size of thc palm of
one's hand is sufficient fcr # those
whose mode of life does not includo
heavy labor. Any excess makes demands on your organs leading to
premature debilitation. Mr .Hoover
has taught us to avoid over-indulgence in meat on the other days. He

opportunity occurred on a street car,

eye. The ladies ignored the gaze, but
steadfastly regarded:.;, the officers'

George Long, Nat Tucker, and
Martin Maurer are putting holes
aud shots into the Lilly B mine,

Labor is so scarce iu Silverton,
that many of the local millionaires
have to drive their own teams, and
feed their own chickens.
Tom McNeish has ��20,000 worth
of goods in his store at Slocan City,
and is also mining recorder. Not
too dusty for one of the ghost cities of the Slocan.
Herman Clever is still looking
young aud doing a big business.
He is the meat king of the Slocan,
and his shops are unsurpassed anywhere in the west.
A recent Qssay of the Slocan
shows a trace of booze, several
stringers of poker and blackjack,
and a superabundance of rooming
houses and lauudrios.
At $3.50 a day it is impossible
to get men to work ou the wagon
roads, with the exception of a few
old men. This retards the moving
of ore by   teams  through the hills.
Mrs. J. H. Werely will be 94
years old on July 4. She ran the
first sewing machine in New York
City, and saw the body of Lincoln
lying in stete, just after he was
assassinated in TS65. .
There are two stores and three
hotels in Slocan City. The town
has plenty of sugar, but there is no
boom; Everybody is full of optimism. That and water is about
all you can get to fill up on.
After working for three years at
the Standard mine John Batt is
takiDg a rest in New Denver.
Years ago Batt had a dog that
knew moro about the Slocan roads
aud trails than the B.; C. government.
In the rear of his literary emporium at Sandon, Judge Billy
Parham has a small ranch that is
a thing of beauty aud a joy
supreme. The Judge makes a
specialty, of carrots and sunflowers,
ahd his Edeuic garden is thronged
with visitors, especially on the
12th of July-
It is reported that Billy Koch
has sold his old boarding house
building on Ten Mile, to the Delia
Mining Co. for $1,000. It probably co&fe bitn years ago about
$7,000. It is also reported, that
the Doukhobors made 856,000 for
Mr. Koch last year, by running his
sawmill on a royalty:basis.
Since George Murbard closed
his store and hotel at Three Forks,
that famous old camp looks like a
real ghost city of the west, Tn
1894 it was tbe-."most'.'prosperous
town in Kootenay. Jim Ryan and
a few more old trail-blazers are
still guarding the camp against the
bats and spooks of solitude.:
Charley McDonald,'k'abivn to bis
friends as -Windy is now a guest of
the Old Man's Home atKamloop?.
Charley left Nova -Scotia iii; 1864
for California. On .the boat that
brought him to ^Frisco; "Dad Allen
���was baggage roaster, : but Charley
didnob know this for .''more.; than-30
j-ytarsjlater. ; He scraped bed-reck
[around7 Whiskey y Hill, Poker Flat
arid other camps near Placeryiile in
search of placer gold;: for 18 years,
before he departed for   Utah, land
ing in Kootenay about 25 years
ago. At one time he owned mining properties near Slocan City.
It is years ago since Bob Cunning planted the first spuds in
Sandon. He now has a fine ranch
and orchard close to his hotel. He
has recently purchased two raiJch
goats. Sandon is an ideal place
for raising goats. There is plenty
of brush on the hillsides, and within the city limits there ia an abundance of feed for these hardy animals, in the way of tin cans, bottles, preserved playing cards, lead
concentrates, granite boulders and
tenderfeet. Mr. Cunning is to be
commended for introducing this
latest Sandon industry, and his
wide circle of friends wish him a
lasting and remunerative success.
The writer is of the opinion that
long after he and Bob Cunning,
have been shot into the ozone, to
push clouds with the angels that
the main revenue of the Slocan
will be produced from goats and
tourists. By Goad! What do you
think of that?
It is more than 26 years since
John Morgan Harris came into the
Slocan, and began to build up his
fortune from mining, real estate,
and other investments. Born in
Virginia, that grand old historical
state, he combines the quiet and
confident air of a southerner with
the dash and energy of a western
plunger. He is one of the noted
and pictureque pioneers of the silvery Slocan, and the man who
never heard of him is indeed a
tenderfoot. Although very determined, energetic and aggressive in
business affairs he is a Beau Brum-
mel in dress, and a lover of music,
flowers, and all that is beautiful in
art and nature. His garden next
to the Hotel Reco is like an oasis
iu the middle of a rock-strewn
deseit. In it can be seen sweet
and beautiful beds of flowers,
flanked by many varieties of vegetables. Just across the flumed
street he has an orchard of plum,
cherry and apple trees.

Kill or Dispose of Roosters
Thousands of dozens of eggs are
wasted each year in this Province,
partly through carelessness and
neglect. To remedy this state of
affairs, poultry breeders should remove all male birds from the
breeding pens, thus allowing the
stock to produce infertile eggs onlj\
Once again it appears necessary
to point out that there will be no
diminution in the egg supply if the
roosters are taken away. In fact,
the hens should lay better. ' Male
birds sold now are also likely to
fetch more than later on, when old
and young stock are being marketed in large quantities.
Fertile eggs will germinate in a
temperature as low as 70 degrees,
and where there happens to be
broody hens, these eggs are rendered unfit for eating purposes in a
few hours, if sat upon before being
In disposing of roosters at this
time a certain amount of valuable
graiu feed will have been saved,
and in urban areas a better neighbourly feeling will exist. Incessant crowing during the early
hours does not encourage this.
Broody hens should be immediately removed from the nests,
placed in cool quarters and fed
generously on egg forming foods.
This will tend to get them into laying condition.
