During tho paBt year a great deal of

various diseases of which the buyer
was entirely Ignorant. Crown gall

Crown gall is found on peach, al

seedlings as well as grafted trees, and
tho disease can bo communicated by

MUST BE LEARNED
Long Established Custom Among
Poultrymen to Feed Hens
Wet Mash Every Day.
(BY OSCAR ERF.)
Thero Is a knack.. In feeding hens
that must be learned by experience.
Tho hens must bo well fed and yet
should always bo a little hungry.
During tho day thoy aro not to bo at
vany time satisfied, but in tho evening
Ihey may bo fed all they will clean up
In half an hour. It Is a long-established
custom with poultrymen to feed
hens a wet mash once a day. This
may bo fed In the morning or In tho
evening, according to convenience.
Evening feeding Is preferred by most
people. Whero meat and green food
aro well provided, the mash can bo
droppxd.ut of tho bill of fare entirely
and Its place supplied by a greater
variety of grain food.
The method of feeding grain usually
auggested for winter practice is to
feed in straw or other litter, A place
to scratch not only provides the much
ncetlcd exerclso, but keeps tho her.s
contented, warm and healthy. Tho
finer the grain, tho moro often tho

in spite of tho Injury caused by the In
ject. Most of tho Insects conflno
their attention to the roots, whero
they will commonly be found at all
seasons on roots to a depth of a foot
or more, but some of them Infest tho
bark of tho trunk, or branches nnd
shoots coming from the roots. They
are often seen about tho margins of
wounds, or at tho forks of branches,
whero while finding food they are
-moro or less protected. Thero is a
downy cotton-lllke secretion from tho
body of tho Insect, which gives a
mass of them tho appearanco of blu
Ifah white mold. The luscct multiplies
throughout tho milder parts of tho
year by the birth of living young,
which aro produced agamlcally from
wingless females. So tho soil be
comes fairly lousy with them In time.
Tho insect spreads rapidly toward tho
approach of winter by the appearance
of a generation of winged females
which fly about, assisted in their trav
els by the winds. Tho result is a
wide distribution of the insect. These
in turn bring forth n generation of
males and fomales. A winter egg Is
soon deposited on the bark of the
treo In ,Bomo,crovlco. It hatches in
the following spring, and n new col
ony is soon started.
Particular care should bo used to
plant only clean Bt'ock.. Nursery
trees showing much injury by woolly
aphis should not bo planted. Trees
from among infested stock should be
trented by dipping tho roots In kero
sene emulsion, containing about ten
per cent, of korosent, after dilution.
Dipping the roots for a fow seconds

of 135 degrees Fahrenheit Is an ef

Ident of tho Union Bank of Canada,
whoso branches nro to bo found in all
parts of tho Canadian West, said:
"A good deal has been said about
speculation In land. Tho increnso In
land values has added enormously to
the assets of Western business, and
has to somo oxtcnt formod a basis for
oxtondod credit, but this Is not folt to
bo a drawback when tho valuo Is real
and convertible. Wo consider that a
business standing which is strength
ened and enhanced by property hold
lugs Is entitled to a rcnsonablo en
largement of credit for legltlmato busi
It will thus bo seen that tho banks
rccognlzo tho certain rlso In tho value
of farm lands In Western Canada.
When tho fncta aro known of tho won
derful producing qualities of farm
lands in tho Provinces of Manitoba,
Saskntchowan and Alberta, jt- is sim
ple to understand tho liberal stand
taken by the banks.
Living not far from Lanhburn, Sask.,
is a farmer named Clarke who In 1012
secured a crop of Marquis Wheat,
yielding 7G bushels per acre. This
Is spoken of as a rocord yield, and this
Is doubtless truo, but Bovernl caseB
have been brought to notlco whero
yields almost as largo havo boon pro
duced, nnd In dlfforont parts of tho
country. During tho past year thero
havo been reported many ylelda of
from 35 to 45 bushola of whoat to the
acre. Oats, too, woro a success
ful crop, and so waa tho barley
crop. Wheat that would yield 40
buflhels por acre, would bring on tho
market 70c (a fair flguro) per bushel,
a gross return of $28.00 per aero. Al
low ?12,00 per aero (an outside figure)
thero would bo a balance of $1G.00 per
acre net profit. This flguro should
satisfy nnyono having land that cost
less than $100.00 per aero. Very much
less return than this proves satisfac
tory to thoso holding lands In Iowa
and Illinois worth from $250 to $300
Tho latest Government returns glvo,
an approximate qstlmato of four hun
dred thousand of an Immigration to
Canada during 1912. Of this number
200,000 will bo from tho United States.
Most of these aro of tho farming class
and It Is not difficult to understand
why farming lauds In Canada will ad

within tho next twelve months. There
fore Investment In Western Canadian
lands Is not looked upon ns being In
tho speculative class. Thoso fortunato

Canada will acqulro In tho lntrlnslo
