As a compliment to the dairy industry, the raising of swine proves very  profitable and they may be kept in  nearly every district of the Province.  At the same time the supply 1b not  nearly equal to'the demand. With  our comparatively mild winters, where  there is very little snowfall and  where abundance ot green food may  be produced, hogs may be raised*  cheaply.  In many parts of the Province clover  and alfalfa do very well, and In the  Fraser Valley, along the Lower Main-,',  land���������the chief centre of the dairy Industry���������hogs are being kept in great  numbers. The chief breeds are York*'  shire, Tamworth and Berkshire. f with  crosses of YorkBhire-Berkshire and  Tarn worth-Berkshire. There is strong  sentiment in favor of the bacon type  of hog, yet it is not advisable to breed  the-extreme'bacon type as produced in  Ontario for the British market. It is  doubtful if British Columbia will ever -  export pork, consequently there will  be more profit in. producing a thicker  bacon hog than in breeding of those  to produce the Wiltshire side.  Prices for live hogs averaged from 8 cents to 10  cents in 1911.   B.C. Government Bulletin Mo. 10.

The Liberal policy of Sir Wilfred has been to build Canada up by gradually  ! severing the ties which bind us to the Empire. Mr. Borden aad his party, ou the  1! contrary, seek.to strengthen the imperial union by securing for Canada a position  '.

Dear Sir:���������  I notice an article ln your Issue of  the 3rd of May under heading, "Notes  of the West," where some poor fellow  was complaining of having to pay the  large sum of 124.00 for getting a car  hauled 13 miles. I do not blame him  in the least for kicking about the  charges, but. they are nothing with  what we have to put up with in thia  part of the country.  We are unfortunate enough to be  small country merchants at Hazel-  mere, B. C, and get a great portion  of our flour and feed at Calgary Alta.,  for which the C. P. R. charges us  $111.00 for a 30-ton car to New Westminster, but that is easy compared to  the Oreat Northern. They charge ub  $60.00 for the same car from Westminster to Hazelmere, a distance of only  21 miles, and their excuse for these  exorbitant charges is that Haxelmere  is not on the same line as Guichon  and Ladners (which are both much  better favored in regards rates than  we are), but at the same time the  same train and crew serves both Hazelmere and Guichon and on the same  days, and are paid by the Great North*  era Railway.  We have the matter before the Railway commissioners but being alone in  the matter it seems Impossible tb get  any redress.  When a poor man steals from two  or three dollars he gets from one to  ten, years in the pen., but the railroads  are allowed to put their hands in a  man's pocket and steal about $50.00  every time they move a car a few  miles. This we think would be a good  subject for some of the Board of  Trades to take up and the writer will  be glad to furnlBh them with any data  we have ln our possession in order to  try and get a atop put to some of this  highway robbery by the railway companies.

Sir Thomas Lipton tells a humorous  story of a Scotchman who went to a  race meeting for the first time in his  life. The old man's friends persuaded  him to risk sixpence on a horse���������a  forty to one chance.  With much trepidation, the Scotchman handed out the sixpence, and,  strange to relate, the horse won.  when the bookmaker handed out a  sovereign and sixpence to Sandy, the  latter could not believe his own eyes.  "Do you mean to tell me I get all  this for my sixpence?" he asked.  "You do," replied the the bookmaker.  "Ma conscience!" exclaimed Sandy.  "Tell me, mon, how long has this  thing been going on?"  Though Sandy had "greenhorn's  luck" and "picked tbe winner" "on his  first venture, he might not do so  again in 99 times out of 100, as those  who "follow the ponies" could tell  him. The man who wants to place  his "sixpences" on a "sure thing"  should investigate the Canadian Government's Annuity System, information in regard to which may be obtained at any postoffice or on application to the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa.

Porter, superintendent of  the Anglican East Indian Mission, Triumph street, reports tbat good progress has been made in tbe work since  its inauguration last May. Although  the work is, of necessity, comparatively slow, owing partly to the counter  attractions of the season, and partly to  the very suspicious natures peculiar  to the Hindoos, the report of the work  to date shows a steady increase and is  very encouraging to those who are interested. In May there were 2 2at*  tendances, in June 64 atendances, and  in July over 10 Oattendances.  Mr. Porter says that the appreciation of the Hindoos who take full advantage ot the facilities which are  provided at the mission for their education and advancement is most gratifying. This gratitude is expressed by  the more practical method of bringing-  bundles of firewood, buuehes of flowers, etc., than by words, and those who  assist in this work cannot fail to receive a riclf blesslng'in the doing ot it.  Richard, aged five, waa being Interviewed in regard to his school work.  "And where do you go to Sunday  school?" was next asked.  "To the Episcopal," he replied.  "What have you learned there?"

Coleman has almost completed at the corner of Carolina street  and Seventh avenue is truly an asset  to the whole district. The situation is  admirable, overlooking, as it does, tbe  Creek snd the surrouuding slopes, and  this view is further enhanced by tbe  construction of a roof garden at the*  height of four storeys.  The house is of brick and covers an  area of 80x120 feet. It comprises 40  suites, which are arranged on the moBt  liberal scale, each being fitted with  the most modern plumbing and heating.. The heating apparatus is also  thoroughly up-to-date, a refuse burner  serving the double purpose of destroying tbe waste matter and at the same  time heating water. The water supply has a capacity of 40,000 gallons  and refuse chutes are among the conveniences provided. The house will be  ready by the middle of next week and,  surrounded as it is by some of the  best residence in Mount Pleasant, it  will likely soon be filled. The building, which was started in February,  cost in the neighborhood of $65,000,  and is certainly a fie feature of Mount  Pleasant.  Charles Feht, proprietor of the Sanitary Market, 2513 Main street, near  Broadway, has in a comparatively  brief space of time built up a splendid  trade in our midst. His own explanation of hJB signal success is that ln  this age of enlightenment on the danger of disease from everything unsanitary, the people appreciate a clean,  sweet-smelling meat market. It requires much care and effort to keep  such a place sanitary, but it pays ln  increased patronage. A second reason  he gives fos his prosperity Is that he  offers the best quality tor the most  reasonable price. He also advertises  in the Western Call, which goes weekly into a multitude of his patrons'  homes.  Mr. Feht, while still' short of the  meridian of life, bas, however, devoted  twenty years to tb.e^meat business. lie  is no amateur: He was born in Germany and has brought over to the  New World the same powers of con  centration and thoroughness that haye  made his race one of the mot noted In  arts and c<m������merce. He is enthusiastic over thei. present success and  future prospects of Vancouver.

A large number of friends and teachers and about 200 children gathered  for luncheon and supper under the  trees. The children enjoyed them'  selves in games and races and many  prizes were won.  The previous day was their Sunday  School anniversary and special services were held. The morning service was conducted by Rev. Mr. Pye.  In the afternoon by Rev. Mr. Manuel  and the evening service by Mrs. Lashley Hall. The day was a success, both  from- a numerical and financial viewpoint.  This section of the city will hail  with pleasure the establishing of a  first-class commercial school in our  midst. The Success Business College,  with F. G. Garbutt as President and  E. Scott Eaton, B.A., as Principal,  have secured temporary quarters at  153 Tenth Avenue East, and will open  classes Thursday, August 1st.  They will later occupy the whole of  the top story of the splendid new  Harris block, now in course of construction at the corner of Tenth avenue and Main street. This will be a.  fine acquisition to our increasing pub*'  lie institutions. Knowing something  of the splendid work being accomplished through the schools already  established by President Garbutt in  Calgary, Revelstoke, Edmonton, etc.,  we unhesitatingly commend this new  college to the earnest consideration  of the young people and their parents,  in that section of the city.

MIX FAIRS  Vticoayer frbibitiot AhiwM WtMo 17t*  In an article on "The Improvement  of Plants" in the  Popular    Science  Monthly, Dr. H. J. Webber gives this  illustration of the vast results that  come from improvement in a single  product:    "Hay is one of the largest  agricultural    crops    of    the    United  States, outranking all other crops, except corn, in total value of production.  In 1910, according to the statements  issued by the United States department of agriculture, there were grown  in the United States 45,691,000 acres  of hay, which yielded a crop haying a  farm  valuation of $747,769,000!    No  statistics are available from which we  can determine what proportion of this  hay Was timothy, but the writer believes that we may safely conclude  that at least one-third of the entire  hay crpp of the TOiontry is timothy.  H this/to triie, tiieUmothy crop of the  United States In 1910 had a valuation  of over $249,000,000.  In the two years  during which, tests have been wade,  the seventeen new sorts of timothy  gave an average Increased yield of  slightly oyer 36 8*5 per cent*'above  ordinary timothy.  A 86 3-6 per cent  increase in the valuation of the timothy jsrop as above estimated would  give *uS oyer $90,0o8,6oo as the estimated annual gain in the value of the  crop which would be obtained if new  sorts as good as these could be used  throughout the country."

And glancing over the)  little park and the adjacent streets j  without seeing any sign of inquisitive-  followers, the boys struck out on their'  devious journey. They reached Twen-'  ty-third street and Sixth avenue in a  few minutes, seated themselves on  the bench beside the uptown tracks,  and allowed two trains to pass without making a move to board either1  one. ��������� A third train rolled up; the  youngsters waited till the gate was  Commercial St.  Complete Change of Programme Three Times per wk.

"I forget which of the great New  York gangs is in charge of this particular section," said tbe Cuban���������'  "whether the Five Points or the East-,  mans."  "According to the magazines,"'  Brockett responded, "tbls must be the*  very heart of the territory where the;  Apaches of New York hold forth. In  case of a hold-up, dont stop to argue���������  shoot, and keep right on running'."  The Eastmans and tbe Five Points,-  however, did not seem to have even!  outlying sentinels ln Canal street, and'  no one even paid any special attention to the adventurers as they  crossed over Into the Bowery. That  famous old street, fountain-head of;  song and story, and in no actual man-:  ner any different from any other ���������  street which is the main avenue of the;  poor and lowly, was traversed at a:  steady gait.

His comrades, who were  some distance away from him In the  water, which Is very deep at this  place, heard his cries for help, and  went to his assistance.

The matte/  was urged upon them by a deputation  from York road, who pointed out that.  It would be of great convenience to  people living in that neighborhood.  The request waa held over for further  consideration by the board.  Mr. W. J. Holdom wrote in reference to obtaining a school site in block  6, J), U 127, North Burnaby. where be  urged the necessity of establishing a  scbool. The, trustees resolved to look  into the matter-  Architect Bowman reported to the  board tbat the addition to the West  Burnaby scbool was now completed  and ready to be taken over by the  board. Chairman Mayne stated that  he bad inspected the new portion and  found everything in order and it will  now be taken over by the board.  The architect was also heard with  reference to tbe plumbing at the  schools at Inman avenue and Armstrong avenue, and be was instructed  to advertise for tenders for the necessary work, these to be in by August 5.  It was resolved to purchase seats to  the value, of $800 for new schools.  The special committee having read  the report on fire extinguishers, it was  resolved to purchase twenty Childs  fire extinguishers at $12 each.  MiBs Sipprell was appointed to Du-  thie school at a salary of $65 per  month.  yy- ' BEL*, THEATRE  The free entertainment.given at the  Bell Theatre last Wednesday, demonstrating the advance in the moving  pictures, was a great success, and the  crowd was past expectations of the  manager, who certainly provided a  splendid programme. The story of  "The Letter with the Red Seals" was  very Interesting, being taken from a  part of the French Revolution. The  Humors of animal life was exceeding*  ly good, showing the habits, feeding  of young birds, ferrets at play, the life  led by a raven, and an Owl. This was  followed by a real laughable comedy,  "Toto as Doorkeeper," which brought  tbe house into fits of laughter, as also  did the "Invisible Thief," another rattling comic. The scenic picture was  most htagniflcent, showing a lovely  piece of scenery in Franco. Right here  I would like to mention that one doesn't ha**e to travel, when the moving  picture' manufacturers produce these  origlnst Dtetures of Snrope and differ  ent parts of the world.'  The show concluded with a good  drama; "An Italian Gratitude," with a  good moral.  The manager In a few words ex<  plained the advance ln tbe moving  picture world of the present day, and  be alsft mentioned that while he is at  preset*Vgiving as good a show as any  suburban house, he is hot satisfied  with that but would like to give the  best show of any house. To accomplish this .he only requires the support of the Collingwood district At  the matinee next Saturday he is giving a prise to the girl and boy baving  tbe lucky dumber. Next week a 3-  reel feature, 'The Death Ship," will be  shown.,  Summer Time-Just a Word With You  This is the best time to re-paint your house or building*-,  fences, etc. We carry a full stock of Paints, Oils, Varniahea  Painter's Supplies, etc., and the prices ARE RIGHT.  .".J. ; ,'T,*SX:       v'.^W'^l  *&o:yrXir������.xz{y*tiM  'kyy~���������m*&iim  rit'-:'X '���������  al  Cor.

FARM NOTES.  At a recent conservation meeting in  Lansing, George B. Rowe, of Grand  Rapids, emphasizing Michigan's advantages for fruit growing. Michigan,  he said, contains over 30,000,000 acres  of tillable land. "Of these 20,000,000  acres are under the plow and one-  third of one million acres is planted  to fruit of different kinds. From the  acres devoted to fruit we take approximately $10,000,000 worth of fruit,  but we should take $40,000,000 worth.  There are more than 2,000,000 acres  of good number one fruit land in the  state. The natural climatic conditions of Michigan furnish more safeguards to the fruit grower than can  be found in any other section of the  United States. The record of thirty  years shows that our injuries from  cold winters or frosty springs have  been less than in any other fruit growing section in the country. Our transportation facilities are far superior to  those found in any other fruit growing section. There is no state in the  Union that can place its fruit in the  great consuming centers more quickly  or cheaper than it can be done from  Michigan."  BELL THEATRE  O. W.

POPULATION OF  THE UNITED  "Within a period of fifty years the  population of the United States Increased 33 per cent, while the number of insane and feeble-minded Increased 950 per cent., according to  the recent census, practically all of  which lo-due to the chronic and excessive use of alcohol in one form'or  another, and narcotics. Degeneracy Is  shown in the lessened fertility of the  nation. In five years the birth rate in  the United States fell of 33 1-2 per  cent."  Dr. MacNicholl then compared statistics collected by himself, in which  he showed that of abstainers, ninety  per cent, of the children were normal  as against seven per cent, of those  with alcoholic parents. He declared  that the degeneracy taint is hereditary\l  and noted the fact that the tendency  passed through three generations of  children in ten families of drinking  parents. For every child that died of  abstaining parents, five died of parents  addicted to one form or another of  narcotics. Taking these figures, he  asserted that since the beginning of  the century, 1,000,000 babies under two  years of ago had died as the result of  the drink habit of their parents. The  remedy, he believed, would be to treat  alcoholism the same as we treat other  forms of epidemic diseases.. <- ;  It has always been a bone of contention whether alcoholism should be  treated as a disease or.as a crime, but  it is both. A diseased condition.'of  mind ancl body lead up to it, and a  diseased condition of more aggravated  sort result from it.  The alcohol victim also commits a  crime against himself and against posterity. He also helps to plungs his  owngeneration downward toward the  pit of demoralization. He ought to be  arrested for his moral offenses and  cured of his demoralizing habits. He  Is not fit to be at liberty. No drunkard is. He is insane when drunk, and  probably semi-insane when sober, else  he wouldn't allow himself to get  drunk. y~y  HINT8.  vWhen tired of sweet jellies: and  )ams, try lemon honey for sandwiches  and tarts.
