Sixteenth Inasmuch as tho remedy at law would be Inadequate, and inasmuch as It is now, and ever will be impracticable and oxtroinoly difflcult to doter-mlne the actual danmge resultinK to the corporation, should the grower fall so to deliver all of hi.s wheat, the grower hereby agrees to pay to the corporation for all wheat delivered, sold, consigned,,or marketed by or for him other than,'in accordance with the terms hereof, the sum of........ cents per bushel as liquidated damages for the. breach of ttils contract, all parties agreeing that this contract is one of a series dependent for its tnie value upon tho adherence ot each and all ot the contracting i>art-les to each and all of tho said contracts.

Private investigations by pro-rAinont Ontario poultrymen, notably Lewis, Clark of Port Hope and Chas. W. sully ot Cobourg, have proven that the scheme is a profitable one whero carefully handled. The Experimental Farms of the Federal Department of Agiiculturo have furnished some In-for^tlon in the following note, and tluiugh a trifle late for any practical vflue this season, particularly where the owner must furnish his own light, It may still prove of some Interest. After repeated experiments by the experimental stations and others, one can safely say that artificial light In the poultry house is an advantage. In that it transfers the period of high production from the spring months to winter months. Though lights ./hiay not be the means of Increasing yearly egg yields, it produces eggs when eggs are high In price. ' Why Light Helps Light gives the birds tho amount ot daylight they are used to having during tlje time ot high production or In the spring months. In Canada, especially, the winter days are extremely short, and tho hen's day even more so, for she goes to roost as soon as It begins to grow dusk, and the trouble is that the night is so long that she Is not able to take enough toed to do her until morning. Tha value of the light is simply to increase her daylight so that she can have more time to eat and less time necessary for sleep. It lengthens the hen's day and makes It more in keep-' Ing with summer conditions. When to Use It There is rfeally no best lime when the light Ehould be turned on. As long as the day is lengthened to from 12 to 14 hours it is Immaterial just what is adopted' so long as the same method is followed throughout the whole season. Care, however, must be taken so that after the lights are turned on in the evening the bird.i will get to roost before the lights are turned out. To insure.this some use dimmers. Others flash the lights, while some claim that it is not neces sary, that the birds will soon get into the habit of knowing just when to take the roost. Kind of Birds Since the use of electric light Is valuable only in hurrying up egg production, it is not recommended as highly tor well-matured early pullets that have started to lay, say. In October or Noveml)er. Under natural conditions these will give a good egg yield, and it is a question as to whether light in their case Is an advantage, but for late and immature pullets and for older hens, light is an advantage. It will hasten tho doveloi>-nient of the later puUots, bring them into egg production much earlier, and . will sometimes be the means of making late birds give a profit when otherwise there would be none. The same is true of hens that have been laying fairly well during iho summer and, undor natural conditions, will rest for most of tho early winter months. As a rule, a CiO-watt Tungsten will give sufficient light for an ordinary The Farmer's Opportunity There is today a ready market for everything you can produce.
