SMITH, AUCTIONEER DO IT NOW Ono city man asked his neit'lihor if ho was doing any gardening this year, and tho reply was, "Oh, yos; 1 am training my nol^hbor's bean-vines to grow on my side of the fence." Here Is where tho city man has it over tho farmer, tor neighbors are not bo con-I venlcnt in the country. Therefore it behooves every farmer to plant hia own bean vinos, and while bo Is at it ho might just as well do a i;ood Job nnd put in a real garden. Do somo-, thing handsome; raise a garden you I can brag about; then your wife won't I have to worry about bills for canned 1 stuff bought at the store. Good, fresh vegetables save many a doctor's bill, too. Sure, there Is some work connected with it, but It Is worth whtio, and tho birds will help you tako care of tho hiigfl and worms that boconio interested In your garden.

Foster lliat no more elevators would bo built in Alberta for some time, the Board of Trade keeps pegging away at the problem. At the council meeting of the board today lot tor wore read from Premier nordcn and Sir Geo. E. Foster relative to the needs hero. The premier says: "I shall bo glad to discuss the matter with the minister of trade and commerce at an early date." Sir George Fonter says: "It is impossible for the Dominion goveniment to undertake to provide storage accommodation to the difi'ori.'iit !)ni-ls of the country wh.ire its conntruction would bo beneficiui. Tliis must lie left to private and coriiorate agoncios. Tho lino of elevators already constructetl by the governincnt marks the limit which at present can bo carried out."

Tiie large yieidi-i of lOl.'i were duo to tonic extent lo tlie cncourageiiipnt given for 111': cultivation of lar-c area;; of land, but an; due more particularly to a very favonib.'e .season. The greatest in-crea.KCs in yle.ds belong to the soutli-erii part of tho jirovlnce, whore the importance of moisture lias a great deal to do willi the success of the croii. Kticords of preciiiitaliou show that this year the moisture falling during t!io growing season was about two and a half times as great as in the protiou.s year. A hieb record has been set in the average yield in wheat this year in S'> hu.shcls as af;ulnst an average of 20 bushels for the last ten years; in oats it is 45 bushels as against ;!5 tor the last ten years and In barley 35 bushels as against 25. Tiie Deputy Ministed reports that livestock interests are progressing satisfactorily. The market for lior.scs has not been high, thougli at the close of the year there was a strong demand for good working stock in Saskatchewan. Cattle prices, especially for pure-bred stock, were high and likewise sliec)) and swine. The announcement is made that tlie Department has issued for distribution among the farmers, at the cost of production, a book setting out a system of farm accounts wliich will enable the farmer to keep tab on his work and transactions similar to what a good busincs.s man in any other line of work would keep. There i.s also a similar book tor household accounts. Reference to the dairy Industry shows a phenomenal increase in dairy work this year. The output of dairy butter has passed tho 7,000,000 lbs. mark. Formerly butter was imported from Australia into the province now .\lberta lutter is going to Australia. The market extends as tar cast as .Montreal. Tlie standard of the Alberta product is largely due to the work of the Dairy Commissioner, C. P. .Marker, of Calgai-y, who has done much In organizing iiroduction on a quality and grade basis and who has marketed the butter likewise by grades that have now become standard. The next report is that of S. G. Carlyie, superintendent of demonstration farms. He reports that tlie farms have shared in the good crops that have been common to the province. Figure.? of total production arc given with respect to grains and dairy produce. Dairy work is made the basal interest on all these farms. The most interesting part of the report however is tlie portion that shows the progress in the production of succulent and forage crops and the successful use of the silo on a half do"en of the demonstration farms. This year, heavy crops of corn were grown at Medicine Hat nnd satisfactory crops at several of the other farms. The figures of total production in grains and other crops arc as foiloys: Oats 115,847; barley 2,2S4; wheat, 1,030; peaa MB; roots lf),G74 bushels; hay HiO tons; alfalfa 00 tons; green teed 823 tons. Agricultural Schools Separate reports of the Provincial Agricultural schools show a iihcnom-' enal Increase in attendance. Tlie nuin-� bers at the various schools are: Olds ilOj; 1,'laresiioim 117; Vernillion 58. While pupils in attendance at tho schools come from every part of tho province, the school services being available within reasonable distance, has a good deal to do with Uic patron, ace. At the present rate of increase, the i)resent schools will become badly congested. Dairy Work The report of the Dairy t;omniis-sioncr C. P. Marker, is of a highly satisfactory clinraeter. In addition to very largely Increased production of creamory butter and a decrease of dairy butter, it sliov.'s a progress of grailiug not only in tho llnislied product but Ukowiso in the cream, when It reaches the factory. It also deals with the extension of markets, with the feature of centrnliz.ation in manufacture in tho cities and with many other matters tliat will repay a reading oC tlio report. C, S. llotclikiss. publicity commis-Fioncr, reports a large falling off in immigration, especially from the Olil Country, but reports a continuance of interest in Alberta by the people of the western States. Dr. P. R. Talbot, iirovinclal veterinarian, sets out the conditions with respect to diseases among animals In the province. Typhoid fevor and swamp I'over appear to be on the de-croasQ, but foot-rot in horses and trouble from poisonous weeds nro on tlie increase. Live Stock W. F. Stevens, Live Stock Commissioner, gives a general review of live stock conditions in tho province. At tho close of the year, niarkollu!!; conditions are highly satisfactory wltii respect to all classes of stock except perhaps horeos. 'I'llo lutorout in sheop appears to have been very strong during the year, The prlco of wool has boon from 50 to 70 jior cunt higher than in previous years; tho marketing of wool on a co-operative basis, by local broedors' associations, assisted by a Dominion govsrument prador, has helpeil to socuro better prices for the farmer. New bropds have been tiv trodnoed � into, tho ; jirovlnco, among them tho, Kurakulii .alieop wlilcU la has dislributed a large amount of literature during tiic year. Poultry suiierintcndent, A, W. I'oley sets out tile progress of as.soclatlona in the marketing of eggs and In the carrying on of egg-laying competitions. Mr. H. i.awton, chief game guardian reports that large game is very plentiful, while game birds appear lo be on the decrease, (Jtlior reports dealing with specific branches of work are those of the pro-vincial health ofllcer, Dr. T. J. Norman and the director of the provincial laboratory, boll) of whom report the carrying out of a large and important work.

Jump into an aeroplane, chase a German seaplane raider thirty miles out to sea, kill the observer and bring the machine down and then within an hour and a halt rejoin liis friends was the remarkable feat performed by Flight Commander Reginald Bone, of the British Royal Nava! Air Service during the raid on tlie Kent coast last month. Tho Kentish Express for March 25, a copy of which has been received in the city contains an account of tho raid in which several people wore killed and a greater number injured, i In regard to Commander Bone's ex-jploit the paper says: f-'light Commander Btme, R.N.A.S., who was paying a week-end visit to Westgate-on-Sea, went up in a single sealer aeroplane and pursued one of the German seaplanes thirty miles out to sea, where, after an action lasting a quarter of an hour, he forced it to descend. The German machine was bit many times and the observer killed. Commander Bone hud flown from Maidstone to see some friends, and was actually al lunch with them when the raid occurred. It was a fast scouting machine he had travelled by, and it was its i)retty turn for speed that enabled him to mark down his quarry. The chase was begun and the commander back among his friends within an hour and a half, and one remarkable thing about it was tliat, thougli his aeroplane was armed with a light gun, it was not that, but his revolver that put the occupants of the hostile machine hors do combat. After the raid Commander Reginald Bone returned to Maidstone and on Monday evenine; sat unconcornodly omugb in one of the boxns at the trainee tlieatre with several brothe* otlicers. Ho was suddenly recognizer', by the audience, who rose en masse and accorded him a most enthusiastic ovation, the orchestra meanwhile striking up "For he's a jolly good fellow." Calls went up for a speech but tho gallant airman, with characteristic reserve, declined to be drawn, and the performance proceeded without further manifestations. Ho had n great reception on leaving the theatre. J I ^^^^ MR. WHITMAN 1R74 Esplanade Avenue, Montreal. "In 1912, I was taken suddenly ill with Acute Stomach Trouble and dropped in the street. I was treated by several physicians for nearly two years. I was in constant misery from my stomach and'my weight dropped down from 225 pounds to IGO pounds.

Athens, April 19-The now Anstro-Bulgarlan frontier, according to Sofia newfiiiapers, begins between Ossipan-it/a and Passarowitz and continues between Lapovo and Suitainatz. Thence it proceeds between Yangkouvine and .Asionivia, extending thence to Krush-evalz and St. Aonlz. Tho towns of Ossipaultza, Passarowitz and Krushe-vatz remain in the hands of tho Auj;-trians. rhousands of persons who have never known a day's sickness in any other form are subject to frcqueot attacks of Headache that almost dfiaB thera mad. Whatever the nature may be aaei'tbiir cause, the immediate condition that produces the pain is a congestion or filling up of the blood vessels of the bi'ain with blood, thus causing a pressure on the brain cells and nerve iilaments. In treating all forms of Headache the first thing to do is to relieve the conjjcation of the blood vessels of the brattt. Abbey's Effervescent Salt in laxative doses does this promptly. Sold everywhere at 2Sc. and 60c. Full blooded people who are subject to fretjnent attacks of Headache can be entirely relieved by taking laxative doses of the Salt every morning. Headaches froe; Indigestion _ and Biliousness are also entirely banished by continuing the use of the Salt until the normal action of the liver and stomach is restored. � i. D.
