Hot  (Thirty=Sfcr^ndidates Nominated for Sixteen for School Board  Keen Fight for the Reeves^ Vancouver  Mayoralty Campaign  k.    Vancouver has her hands full at present.  V    Four -candidate? for the Mayoralty and thirty-  [Aeight nominees for the sixteen Aldermanic seats  ;> to be votccL on has turned our city into a very%  beehive of. political activity.  The position of. School Trusteeship is also  ������jeing strongly sought after, for "with two to  '*loct, there are seven candidates.  Most of the candidates are opening up eom-  |ipittee rooms and everywhere signs    of    great ,  ictivity are in evidence.   Indeed, if all signs do  lot fail this election will yet turn out to be one  )f the most exciting ever held in Vancouver.  For the Mayoralty, four candidates are.going  jfctrong, and he would be a bold man indeed who  \yould undertake to name the winner   at    this  tage of the canvass.  The choice of the right man is of considerable  mportance to Vancouver, as 1915 may be a  trying year in many ways. \  Bach  one  of  the   candidates  is   developing  long the lines of his own personality.  Mayor Baxter takes his stand upon his: record  of the past years and Ms eminently the candidate  of things as they are. He shows up in a convincing way the necessity of having a man at  he helm, during the stormy War-weather of 1915,  hose hand has not lost its cunning in municipal  liiatters, who knows the ropes financially, and  Mm is "safe." Xffis motto is:v''^hyVswap  orses crossing the stream?" XV   ���������  Ex-Mayor Taylor is   mores    mercurial    and  azzles his hearers with the possibility of escap-  g from the clutches of the bankers, and his  learers listen to the propounding of. new cur-  iency and banking schemes with ra " would-to- :.  &od-it-were-true" expression on their faces.;  Whether Brother Taylor is right or wrong in '  is ideas and whether he wins this fight or loses,  here can be no doubt of the urgency of some  elief in the direction he indicates, and this in  .tself makes the Taylor candidature strong. Without any unkindness meant, we  would suggest  hat Mr. Taylor's speeches remind us of. the old  cotch proverb:    ''par away birds hae bonnie  (feathers."  Ex-Mayor Douglas represents the heavy  lement in.this Mayoralty fight. Solid, sound  nd safe, and if,, accused of being a little slow,  e replies: "Better sure than sorry," and backs "  is candidature up with a long period of suc-  essful and honorable business record in our  ity. The old-timers' candidate is G. S. Douglas.  Last there is Joseph Martin, barrister, pro-  osed by B. T. Rogers,^^ se^conded ^_>^_H. Gal-^  ttgherrvtjiiitielf backinig in itselfX  Mr. Martin is the avowed enemy, of things-as  jjthey have "been and as they are.   Without pro-  ounding  any  new-fangled  schemes   of  reconstruction, he proposes to smash 'em and let those  ho may reconstruct. -   '���������"  Especially is "Fighting Joe" on the trail of  he railroads who have obtained fabulous municipal largesse in the False Creek flats and who  |have completely fallen- down on rendering a  |"quid pro quo" to the city. .  Mr. Douglas promises to strongly urge the  'railroads to a better way. Joe Martin pledges  'himself, if elected, to invoke the strong arm of  ;>the law and compel the railroads to do our city  justice.  ������'    Joseph has inscribed upon his shield: G. N. R.  Jjind C. N. R. in cross upon a mud-flat, and a.  |: big-stick"  rampant:   underneath   the   motto:  tVIn hoc signo vinces,"   And there are many old  IManitobans who declare that he will win.  The election of the right man for Mayor next  |Vveek will mean much for the City of Vancouver,  md the electors should carefully mark their  Kmllots for the man whom they conscientiously ^  relieve to be the best fitted to bring our* city  through perhaps the hardest year of its ex-  fistenee. Personal likes and dislikes should be  laid aside.   This'is no time for experiments with  mtried methods. The man who can best help  Ithe city to hold its own this year is the man  ' re need. ^  -X-  BULLET THAT WILL WRECK ZEPPELINS  Dr. Charles Dawson, who discovered the  famous Piltdown skull,    has    offered,   to    the  Jritish War Office a new bullet for protection  igainst Zeppelins.    The head of the bullet has  Ja cavity whieh contains phosphorous,. some  of  rhich is allowed to project beyond the apex of-  the bullet. When the rifle is fired, the phosphorous is ignited by the discharge. VAs soon as  the bullet hits the envelope or gas bag   of    a  Zeppelin, the gas is ignited and the container  explodes.',..

Election, Saturday, January 16.  r+*+*+*������*������********>*4  The War  General von Hindenburg and the Grand Duke  Nicholas still hold the spotlight in the world  struggle now going on. ,Amidst claims and  counter claims of victory and defeat coming  from Berlin and Petrograd it is still hard to dig  out the truth. This much, however, seems certain, after an unparallelled six weeks' struggle  the Germans are still held at bay on their third  attack on Warsaw, and that the Russians are  still unhampered in their siege of Pzremysl, are  still threatening Cracow, have routed, the Austrian forces in Eastern and Southern Galicia,  have completely overrun Bukovina and are now -  about to enter Transylvania from the east. Moreover, the Russians are in possession af -the main  passes, over the Carpathian Mountains and, with  all arms, are now pressing f.orwar4 on the Hungarian plains. This, united with the marvellous  victories of the Servians, who have driven the  Austrians from their country and are now assuming the offensive on Austria-Hungary's southern  boundary, has caused something like, a panic in  Buda-Pest and Vienna.  Yon Hindenburg's strategy has won him the  Field Marshall's Baton, but after.all it, has failed  in its main objective���������Warsaw still remains out  of range of his big guns.  It is estimated that the Austro-German forces  on the Polish frontier total 3,000,000, magnificently equipped and armed to a German finish.  Opposed to this the Grand Duke Nicholas can  hardly muster" as yet 2,000,000 men, in,, some  respects at least under equipped. But the Russian forces grow stronger daily and are being  handled in such a steady, careful way as to give  evidence of great military genius. ,  News comes from the Caucasus of, a great  Russian victory over the German-led Turkish  armies that had invaded Russian territory between Kars and Tiflis. This is undoubtedly the  main Turkish attack that has been long and  carefully prepared for by the German Headquarters staff, and its defeat must. be another  terrible disappointment to the Kaiser and his  generals.  The Franco-British forces are hammering  away at the Dardanelles in such an aggressive  way as to cause great uneasiness at Constantinople.      ��������� -      ~   The'British-Indian forces are nearing Bagdad  in the Euphrates valley.  Egypt is still. ,unthreatened even, and all  Mohammedanism, outside of Turkey itself, has  declared for Great Britain���������so far as it has  spoken.  Italy and Greece are restive and may fall on  Turkey any day.  Roumania watches her opportunity, with  growing desire to occupy Transylvania ere it  becomes a Russian province, as have Eastern  Galicia and Bukovina.  On the western battle front the aggressive  has passed to the Allies and constant progress,  slow but persistent, is reported from both French  ' and British sources.  Another battleship disaster has added to the  toll we have to pay for sea supremacy. The  sinking of the II. M. S. "Formidable," torpedoed  by a German submarine, gives another evidence  ���������were any more needed���������of the daring and efficiency of the enemy at sea as well -as on land.  In the House of Lords, the Minister of War,  Lord Kitchener, whilst declining to give any  figures that would help the enemy, made it  abundantly evident that he was satisfied with  the progress of the war. and especially with pro-'  gress of the .armies now in training in Britain  and her oversea Dominions.  -X-  PROHIBITS PHOSPHOROUS MATCHES FROM  CANADA.  New Act Comes Into   Force   Prohibiting   the  Manufacture Here on January 1.  No phosphorous matches will be manufactured in Canada hereafter. On the first of  January the White Phosphorous Act, designed  to prohibit the manufacture and importation of  matches made with white phosphorous became  operative, with exception of the clause dealing  with the sale. The clause prohibiting the sale is  not effective till January 1, 1916.

In tho previous four years the City  was saddled with $15,000,000 of  bonded indebtedness, making our an  nual charge next year for it and local  improvement $2,226,000.00, being over  two fifths of our total income.  I would just like to call the atten  tion of the electors to the fact that  two years ago I stated that, in my  opinion, Vancouver should look to the  development of her harbour,. that we  required a grain elevator, together  with a drydock to accommodate the  shipping.  During my term of office and at  Mr. Stevens' request, in order to help  him, I have, made one trip to Ottawa  and one trip to Winnipeg, and or  these trips succeeded in helping hirr  so efficiently that today the contract  for a large grain elevator has beer  let for the City of Vancouver, and all  the preparations made, including plan;  and specifications for an up-to-date  drydock.  I was also instrumental in savin/  $300,000 to the City in my handlinf  of the Bast End Viaduct Bylaw  Mayor Taylor was strongly urging, yoi  to vote $400,000. I opposed this anc"  afterwards got an order ��������� from th'  Railway Commission which made th<  City's share less than $150,000.    .  In these things alone, more has beer  done for the permanent advancement  of the' City of Vancouver than -wai  ever done in two years previous.  In reference to expenditure and  taxes. My policy is to keep the ex  penditure down as ,low as reasonably  can be. At the same time,. I do, not  believe that a cheese pairing policy if  the proper one to take just now. It  seems to me that in order to help our  citizens, both working men and business men, the City, should adopt the  policy of the British Government, and  give as much work as possible during  a time of stress and scarcity of employment.   :'-. ���������  If you favor me with your vote on  election day, T promise you th* same,  and even better, service in the future  than you have had in the past.

Mr. Charles Sangster, who is a  candidate for School Trustee,  came to British Columbia fifteen  years ago as an erecting engineer  for an Eastern Canadian mining  machinery firm, with whom he  had been trained in that business.  After a few years travelling in  the, mining country as engineer  and salesman, he was sent to  Vancouver ten years ago to open  a branch sales office here. Four  years later he took a position  with the Vancouver branch of  the Canadian Fairbanks-Morse  Company, in charge of their  machine tool department, and  was soon promoted to the position of assistant manager of that  business. He has since entered  into business for himself under  the name of "The Chas. Sangster  Machinery Company/' specializing on compressed air and mining  machinery.  Mr. Sangster has for some  years been a close student of municipal affairs and collected a  great deal of data on municipal  government throughout the United  States and Canada. The knowledge thus gathered led him into  a campaign of civic reform in  1909 and 1910.  At that time he wrote several  interesting and instructive letters  to the "Daily Province," setting  forth the difference between the  systems of Board of Control and  Commission Government, which  were widely read and discussed  at various meetings throughout  the city. The campaign had a  definite educational value.  Mr. Sangster is a family man,  the eldest of his three children  being of school age. He is running for the office of School  Trustee believing it1 to be the  duty of men in his class to take  an active interest in school matters. He also feels that his practical knowledge of heating, ventilating and technical shop work  should be useful on the School  Board.  REGINA.  THE TRIBUTE.  (By Harold Begbie.)  Not by the valor of Belgium, nor  the lightning sabre of France,  No,t by the thunder of Britain's  Fleet,   and   the   Bear's   unchecked advance;  Not by these fears, Lord Kaiser,  tho'  they shatter a  tyrant's  lust,  Is your heart most darkly troubled  and your soul brought down  to the dust.  But  by the  great  affirming of  ^   the lands we have knit as one;  By the love, by the passionate  loyal love,   of each  separate  _freeborn son.  Canada cries "We are coming!"  and Australasia, "We come!"  And you scowl that no Boer is  rising at    the    beat of your  German drum.  '"���������'���������        X  And the sons of Ind bear witness  ���������-XWe have grumbled, but now  no more;  We  have  shared your plentiful  ,righteous Peace, we will share  your righteous War.

The Capital City Flour Mills have  agreed to supply flour at the  actual cost of production and  any person residing in Saskatchewan can donate any number of bags of flour, and it will  be forwarded to Belgium at the  earliest possible date. It is estimated that the cost of production- is $1.50 per bag and this is  the charge that is being bade by  ithe Capital City Flour Mills.  Within a week of. the' time this  announcement was first made  247 bags of flour had been  donated and numerous additional  donations are being made daily.  Altogether 800 aliens have  registered at the Regina registration office and additional registrations are being made daily.  Those who have registered to  date are mostly Galicians and  ^Roumanians speaking the Hungarian language. Sixty Germans  and three Turks are included in  the number. It is-interesting to  note that the average "cash in  hand" of these aliens amounts  to $70.  LORD  ROBERTS'S RELIGION.  The following; was part of the  tribute paid to the memory of Lord  Roberts in the House of Lords by  Lord Curzon of Kodlestone at the  time  of  his  death:  "No Englishman of our time at any  rate had set such rich and rare an example of simplicity and purity of life,  and none had been more religious-  minded or devout in the beliefs as  well aa in the external observances of  religion. A little more than a fortnight ago he received from Lord  Roberts the last letter he ever wrote  to him, a. letter in which amidst the  trials of the way, he made a strong  plea in defence of family prayers. His  words were:  "'We have had family prayers for  55 years. , Our chief reason is that  they bring the household together in a  way that nothing else can. It ensures  servants and others who. may be in  the house joining in prayers which for  one reason or another they may have  omitted saying by themselves. Since  the war began we usually read a  prayer like the enclosed, and when  anything important 'has occurred I  tell those present about it. In this  way I have found that the servants  are taking a great interest in what is  going on in France. We have never  given any orders about prayers. At  tendance is quite optional, but as a  rule all the servants, men and women,  come regularly on hearing the bell  ������ng.'  "The man who penned those words,"  Lord Curzori said, "even to a friend,  was not only a great soldier, a patriot,  and a statesman; he was also a  humble-minded and devout Christian  man, whose name deserves to live, and  will live, for ever in the memory of  the nation whom he served vrith such  surpassing fidelity to the last hour of  a long and glorious life.''  To the Electors of Ward 8, City  of Vancouver:  Ladies and Gentlemen: I am a  candidate for .Aldermanic honors  in the forthcoming elections, and  I wish to obtain your votes, and  support for Ward 8.     ;  I wish to 'devote my time officially for the benefit of. the ward,  and also for the City of Vancouver, and feel sure that I shall  if elected have your approval.  You all have known me as a  worker in your interest in the  pasft *T$eing iXheavy property  owner in the ward, your interests  are also mine. *You will remember that it was mainly through  ray efforts that Ward 8 was given  its first water service and its first  electrical light service, felso much  of the grading in the ward, and  the settlement of the lanes disputes. The annexation of Ward  8 then P. h. 301, to the City, was  mainly through my efforts. When  South Vancouver was trying to  annex us to that municipality, you  know how I upheld our rights,  and have always been to the front  in fighting the battles of our  ward. I am against graft of all  kinds, and in favor of proper  economy. I have always upheld  the interests of-laborr aad Xfche  rights of the citizen, and will, if  elected, devote my entire attention to your interests. Should I  receive your support, yoii will  find that I am no dead number,  but a live wire, always working  and planning for the best interests of Ward 8 and the City of  Vancouver.

Alone of the British soldiei's' service uniform,  the Highland kilt and bonnet refuse to be  khakif ied.  A costume practically obsolete in Scotland  for a hundred and seventy years, so far as  civilian life is concerned, the philabeg, for reasons of sentiment and romance alone, is more  than ever today the fighting gear of Scotland,  and at the moment there are far more men in  tartan than at any period of Celtic history.  It is vastly pleasing to the "kilty" in France  to have himself marked out to the natives as  "Ecossais," with a manifest impression in the  native mind that the "jupe" is the peculiar  badge of the British corps d'elite. For his English and Irish comrades he is simply "Jock."  All men who Avear Glengarry cap or tartan how  are '' Jocks''���������-the term connotes, in a sense, a  different breed from "Tommys."  Had we the courage to go back on the  casualty list of Black Watch,Xjordbns, Cam-  erons, Argylls, Seaforths and H. L. I.'s and the  other corps who wear the bonnet, we should  learn how great the cost of martial tradition.  ' Wearing the mountain garb, no small pro-  poi'tion of theru come from the Scottish Lowlands: " Paisley, to" Potsdam, Twopence all the  Way," said the legend on an omnibus of kilties  passing through Amiens.  ��������� There was an English journalist's story, some  time ago, that the kilt had proved an inconV  ���������venient garb for trenches; it does hot bear *a  moment's investigation. The kilt, as its Vearers  swear, is an ideal dress for warfare. Its pleats  protect the loins, for which the trousered soldier  -needs an abdominal belt; in muddy trenches  knees quite bare are hardened^ like the face, to  \veather,are far more pleasant, to the owner  than knees with clammy breeches on them.  The Glengarry bonnet, in all but blazing sunshine, is perhaps the best headgear in the British  army- ���������  " ' ��������� x V .. ���������  PURCHASE J>F REMOUNT HORSES  FOR THE CANADJAlT GOVlPMNf  Lieutenant-Colonel A. D. ?McRae. Chief Remount Commissioner, has arranged the" details  for purchasing remotint horses in British Columbia.

V Tlie requirements for tiding horses are: 5 to  9 years old; height. 15 hands to 15.3; weighing  from 1,000 to 1,050 lbs. each.  Those required for artillery purposes are the  .������������������same    as    above,    with  the exception that the  weight is from 1,100 to 1,300 lbs.  Captain F. H. Cunningham, of the 104th Ne\v  Westminster Fusiliers, is purchasing agent, and  Dr. C. M. Henderson, of Vancouver, veterinary  inspector, for the Mainland west of North Bend,  as well as Vancouver Island.

Candidate for Reeveship in South  Vancouver for 19151  Eeeve Kerr's record demonstrates  him an officer' of unusual merit.  Ability, originality and progressive-  ness, united with moral courage, and  backed by honesty, make. him the man  for the position during the financial  emergency that is upon Greater Vancouver in common with the whole  country ��������� and  the  world generally.      ���������  Below are a few of the many things  that, have been accomplished during  his terms of office as .Eeeve of South  Vancouver:  1. Streets: Many miles of streets  have been cleared, graded and macadamized. The inauguration of permanent paving of streets are to be  credited to him as head of the Council.  2. Water: In lif]3, through Eeeve  Kerr's leadership, the water supply  was greatly' increased with a reduced^  rate ' to the consumer, he having secured from the Government 45440  inches increased^ record on Seymour  Creek. At the close of 1914 an-agreement was made with tlie City of Vancouver by which water is to be furnished to the consumer in South Vancouver at a reduction of from 10 to  4V_ cents per 100 cubic feet.  3. Tire Protection: During Eeeve  Kerr's terms of office the Fire Department has been reorganized, with  the' installment of new and modern  fird-fighting equipment. Other additions are under consideration.  4. Garbage: A good garbage de-  'partment has been inaugurated as a  step in the direction of perfect sanitation  and convenience.  5. Transportation: Through tlie efforts of our Eeeve an extension and  improvement in car service was secured from the B. C. E. E.  6. Lighting: The last few years  have. witnessed desirable changes in  lighting of the municipality, by increase of light and decrease of expense, of lighting, the price having  been reduced from 15 cents to 11 cents  per ltilowat hour.  To the above might be added scores  of improvements and advances traceable to the present efficient incumbent, who is urged by many of the  ratepayers to seek re-election for 1915.  In brief, Eeeve Kerr stands for progress along lines of needed improvement so as to give the greatest possible'good to the greatest possible  number.  His policy is one of wise economy  in the. distribution of emergency relief  at once protecting the ratepayers  -against loss and saving the pride of  the beneficiaries from being wounded.  As a means to this end and to future  permanent prosperity the Eeeve has  secured a definite promsie from the  Government to finance, if necessary,  the big sewerage project to furnish  work focrour citizens. t  The $10,000 recently borrowed is  upon the credjt of the $195,000 which  is positively coming to us from the  east. This money, together with the  Government backing above noted, will  place South Vancouver above danger  of the rocks and will' cause activity  and success to smile; upon South Vancouver.  ' .  Vote for Kerr, Saturday, Jan. 16.  ALFRED WILLIAMS.  Mr. Alfred Williams, who is'a  candidate for Alderman in Ward  5, was born hi: Worcester, Eng.,  fifty years ago, and received his  professional education at the Birmingham School of Arts and the  London City Guilds, graduating  from the latter in 1887 with the  degree of.

Other great buildings  in and around Vancouver have  been completed under his supervision, and his advice and decisions in ��������� engineering matters  have given general satisfaction  whenever appealed to.

Why  Leckie's, of Course  Poultry keepers have a habit of  disposing of all the hens and/pullets they can possibly spare whenever feed gets very much beyond  the normal price, but conditions  are such this year that we. believe  it will pay to keep all. females  that, have a semblance of good  laying qualities, irrespective of  the cost of feed. I do not mean  by this that extremely old hens  or worthless pullets should be retained. '  It is. a well known fact that  England depends largely upon  continental Europe and some of  her colonies for her egg supply,  and as the poultry business is  ruined in Belgium and large portions of France, Germany, Austria  and Russia, and the price of eggs  in Holland, Denmark, Norway  and Sweden is beyond the reach  Of ordinary people, her egg sup-  ply.will be cut very short, in fact  all continental Europe will suffer  in this respect, unless it is Bussia.  This is to be greatly deplored; as  large quantities of eggs will be  needed for hospitals and convalescent soldiers.  The following (extracts from  "Poultry," an important English  poultry journal, show the general  trend of thought in that country,  and also that the English are  making every effort to increase  the supply of eggs and poultry:  Resolution Passed by Poultry  Club Council held at Oxford  Court, E. C, August 14,1914:  "That this Council appeals to  all patriotic poultry keepers,  whether concerned in the production of table fowls or fancy birds,  to support their country by continuing their normal course of  business;, and; especially by retaining all useful stock birds with  a view to increasing the nation's  supply of fowls and eggs for food.  "That the fullest publicity be  given to this resolution.*'V  Resolution Passed by Sussex  Poultry Club, held at Lewis, Sussex County, England, August 14>  1914:V;.XX.' ���������.'.��������� ;.x'X  "That this club suggest to  poultry breeders that all piuHets  should be saved for egg; production and that selection be .made  later from such birds for the  breeding of all table chickens, the  'Sussex' being especially useful  for this purpose, it being a good  winter egg producer; and as it  appears that many of the shows  will be cancelled the stdck should  be used for increasing the number  of chickens next spring. With  regard to feeding stuffs, it is anticipated that the prices will not  materially increase, and whatever  it might be, the price of poultry  and eggs would more than compensate the breeder for the out-  J; And I am going to see that my wife buys them J  |: _for THE BOYS too.

It is  to be hoped that every poultry  breeder in the country will do his  best to keep up the supply and increase it if possible."  "Business as usual" is the  country's motto today, and it  makes one proud of that fact that  he is a Britisher to note the calm  and workmanlike spirit which  characterizes our people during  this period of stress. , In the  world of poultrydom particularly  we can go about our daily duties  with quiet confidence.  ' 'The threatened 'famine' prices  of foodstuffs have not materialised. Poultry foods are quoted at  an average increase of about $10  per ton. which means that when  fed on the best foods only, each  bird will cost lV_������c per month  more than ordinarily. I put it to  the thinking poultry that the increased price of poultry and eggs,  consequent upon the increased  demand for these commodities,  will easily bring his additional  returns on a level with his additional expenditure, if not indeed  considerably above it. I contend  that the suggestion to put fowls  on short rations, or to utilize inferior feeding material, are  idiotic in the extreme. The sane  man will continue to feed his  birds generously and well, with  the object of getting the highest  possible results from them, He  will incleed, if he be wise, > pay  special attention to his poultry  at this time, for we are now presented with the greatest opportunity that has ever been offered  to us. The decrease in foreign  poultry imports will bring the  home product prominently before  the purchasing public."  We have it from good authority that the poultrymen of Canada  are being urged in the same way  to do their utmost to meet the demands  that  will be  made upon  them by the mother country for  this   important: product.     Why  should not the poultry raisers of  the United States take advantage  of this crisis, and not only help  to make up the deficit in European   markets   and decrease the  high cbst of living at home, as  #ell; but add'materially to -their  own profits?   This can be done  by carefully observing the following:  1. Keep over this year for  layers all hens and pullets. that  will help to fill the egg basket  2. Market as soon as in condition, all worthless females and  undesirable males.  3. Plan to raise a good supply  of. chicks next spring from the  very best stock you have.  4. Because feed is high, do not  think for a moment that good re-  sults can be obtained from underfeeding.  5..\Feed your poultry well on  good wholesome food, but see that  there is no waste.  6. Our common grains are the  best feeds for poultry.  . 7. If mangels, beets, turnips,  etc., can be purchased at a reasonable price, they will not only  decrease the grain bill, but will  add materially to the health of  the fowls.���������Prof. J. C. Graham,  Macdonald Agricultural College.  \ IMPORTANT  *****************������**********************************������*************************** I *4*4**********������*������********4  CONSERVE -THE BREEDING  STOCK.  WREN KILLING POULTRY.  The United States Government  recommends the following rules  for killing fowls: Grasp the  chicken, when killing, by the  bony part of the skull. Do not  let the fingers touch the neck.  Make a small cut with a small,  sharp-pointed knife on the, right  side of the roof of the chicken's  mouth, just where the bones of  the skull end. Brain for dry  picking by thrusting the knife  through the groove which runs  along the,middle line of the roof  of the mouth until it touches the  skull midway between the eyes.  Use a knife /which is not more  than two inches long, one^-quarter  inch wide, with a thin, flat  handle, a sharp point, and a  straight cutting edge.  At least 30 per cent, of all the  poultry coming into the, New.  York market is incompletely bled.  Much of it is so badly bled that  it results in a loss of two to five  cents a pound, as compared with  the corresponding poultry which  is well bled and in good order.  Aside from the bad appearance,  incompletely bled chickens have  'very inferior keeping properties.  The flesh loses its firmness  sooner, its flavor is not so good,  the odor of stale flesh and finally  putrefaction comes sooner, and in  every way the product is more  perishable.  A very large proportion of the  unsightly poultry in our markets,  aside from the rubbing and tearing of the skins, is caused by an  incomplete removal of the blood  This is evidenced1 by : red dots  Which frequently occur where the  feathers have been removed, especially over thighs and wings,  or by the small veins which mar  the appearance of the neck. Generally it is the neck which shows  most plainly the presence of  blood in the f.owl, or that a wrong  method has been used in cutting  the blood vessels in an attempt  to empty them. The neck is the  first part to discolor, becoming  first red, then bluish red or  purple and finally green.  WOTXCH.

To  this situation the war has,' of course,  largely contributed; but other causes,  including the general financial depfes  sion throughout the country, have  been operative for some months past.  The agricultural industry has, natur  ally, been very widely affected by.  these changing conditions and by the  varying situation with respect to demand and supply. The rise in the  price of grain, together with the corresponding fillip to grain production; ,  represents, without doubt, the "most  outstanding feature of the direction  which has ,been given to agricultural  activity.  We  need, perhaps above all things '  else, Bane, level judgment in the eon- '  duct of our agricultural affairs during  the coming year.   It is to be. expected -  that grain production will be largely  increased.    The raw  products  of  the  soil are, and will be, in demand at re  munerative  prices.    What  then  is to  be said, what course is to be followed, >  with respect to the breeding of live  stock!  The high price of feed, on the one  band,' and relatively low. prices for  market stock, 'on the / other,' have resulted in very heavy marketing  throughout Canada, particularly in the  Western Provinces, of the stock suitable for breeding purposes. Perhaps  this was inevitable, but will these  conditions continue f Feed grain will,  without doubt, be high in price, but it  must never be overlooked that the  country can maintain very large numbers of live stock on the enormous  quantity of rough fodder which it can '  produce. To waste this, for the sake  of the grain which can be grown,  would, under the present circumstances,  be criminal neglect. It is clear, then,  that the country should conserve its  breeding stock. If grain is to be  grown for sale it is recommended that  plans should be carefully thought out -  as to the manner in which the greatest  quantity of rough fodder may become >  available for feeding purposes and aa -  to the means by which this otherwise  waste product, together with the  screenings and : unsalable grain, may  be utilized to the best possible ad  vantage. In other words, eliminate  waste.   Do it by feeding live stock.  The   present   low   prices   for   stock  cannot  last  long.    A  careful  review  of; the world situation makes it clear  that there will be  a shortage    next  year.     Europe   is   becoming   depleted  in  both breeding  and feeding  stock..  The United-!\ States, for ten months of  the current year, at its leading markets Xs   short   746,045   cattle,   208,000  sheep and 1,894,939 hogs.   Canada has,  as   before   stated,   heavily   liquidated  her   breeding   animals   and,  while   it  ,may possibly maintain its quota next  year of cattle and sheep, it is doubtful  if more than  75 per cent,  of the  number of hogs will find.their way to  market   in   1915,   as   compared   with'  the current year.    It is, therefore, a  time for live stock men to stay with  their trade.    The present tendency is,  of course, all the other way.   A safe  harvest is likely to be reaped by those  who   have   stock   for   sale   next   year.  Even bankers and business men are of.  this opinion. X  One word of advice is to be given.  Avoid marketing so far as 'it is at all  possible to do so during the period of  October 15th to December 15th. This  is a time of tbe year when everybody  else has stock for sale. It is a period  when packers know that they can fill  their cellars with cheap meat. These  are the months when the surplus of  the whqle^country finds its way to the  paekihg'centres. "It is invariably the  period of low prices, uncertain markets and disappointing returns to the  producers. "Breed, therefore, to have  your stock available for sale at some  other time of the year. Take care to  provide sufficient winter feed that  you may riot be forced to sell when  the cold weather comes. Above all,  conserve your breeding stock.  *fr*%>4%^*>*%*^4>^%*������]^^  l x  ������,___ G.

Charles S, Douglas, Mayor of Vancouver in 1909,  fe the man we want. ;  VANCOUVER is not a village; it is> 3I������ OITY.  'A       Can we afford to have as ow Chief Magistrate-a man who is not a worthy  representative of the community?  We want a man of whom we can he proud, a man who 4oes honor to the  position. ;  ������j  We -want a-man -who wiUrepresenlxthe people of Va^  represents only a class of the people or a railway corporation.  Charles S. Douglas is the man we want.  He is the man of the hour.  Charles 8. Douglas makes no pledges, except that he will look after the interests of ALL the people. He makes no .promises to the laboring man and he  makes none to the capitalist.  He is a FREE man.  There are no strings tied to him.  Charles S. Douglas will reduce taxation.  He will cut civic expenditures from the day he takes his seat as Mayor.  The first cut will be in his own salary and in the salary of the Aldermen, not  the salaries of underpaid civic employes.  We want Charles S. Douglas for Mayor. He is the man for the office, because  he is a sane, clear-thinking business man.  There are three other candidates for the mayoralty. After examining their  records in public life, do YOU, Mr. Taxpayer, believe that they are entirely disinterested in running for Mayor?  A vote for Charles S. Douglas is a vote for a clean, business administration.  He is the RIGHT MAN in the RIGHT PLACE. v  Don't be fooled by idle promises. Vancouver must get down to business, and  C. S. Douglas is the man to point the way.  1    X    \  1  v ��������� x  *  ':ax  v
