Home Secretary Samuels met fifty leading representatives of boys' and girls' brigade organizations to dis- cuss what ho described as a very urg- ent and very difficult problem. Tho King aud Queen had 'expressed their grave concern at the Increase of Ju- venile offenses. Mr Samuels thought Hie war had enrouroeed the of adventure among the boys, darkened streets gave facilities for wrong doing, and in tho absence of so many millions ot fath- ers on war aorvlco there had been a weakening ot home Influence. It had been found that the Influence of some moving pictures encouraged the spirit of lawlessness and he purposed to es- tablish a central official censorship of all motion picture plays. At the same time he thought much of the trouble arose from misdirected energy and proposed to consider var- ious suggestions which wore put for- ward by the representatives of the or- ganizations and by Sir Baden-Powell, organizer of the Boy Scout movement. bueli or tho straw stacks would, urtder average conditions, be ample for this purpose. Cheap, convenient rooks and troughs or a combination rack and trough will cost little per carload of lambs fed and, If made portable, may bo used for both summer and winter feeding. No other class of stock re- quires so little In cost of equipment, in buildings, utensils, preparation of feeds, or In any other way us do shcop. In these days when labor Is extremely scarce, this phaso of animal hus- bandry should appeal strongly to the farmer who has not sufficient labor to go into dairy husbandry, swine, or even beet cattle.

The law allows her to aban- don her husband's house for just cause and will protect her in so do- ns. She cannot be compelled to aoor for the support of her husband. SATURDAY.

Linseed oil cake might often be profitably added to the grain ration to put a final finish on the lambs. Gluten meal is even superior to the linseed oil cake. Cottonseed when not ex- ceeding 10 per cent of the ration may often be a profitable addition to the grain ration. Middlings, shorts, and fine ground grains are of a pasty na- ture when'moist and should not he fed. To briefly summarize the feeds, one might say that the character and quantities of feeds depend largely upon market conditions and feeds available. A ration inciud'ng some good succulent roughage and proper- ly balanced as to nutritive contents Kill almost invariably give greater profits.

It Is always profitable to finish iambs before put- ting them on-the market, Feeds for Winter Lamb Finishing A large number of feeds have been tried to this work and these may be briefly treated under the four head- ings; dry roughages, succulent rough- ages, grains, and, inill feeds. Of the dry roughages, alfalfa hay is an easy leader, closely followed, however, by fine clover hays and fine mixed hays. At the Experimental Station, Lethbridge, Alta., it has been found that alfalfa hay, when properly fed with succulent roughages and grain, is worth 521 ton for the finishing of lambs. It has also been that alfalfa hay aione or with meal is less profitable than when suc- culent roughages, such as roots {tur- nips and mangels) or green oat sheaves are also fed. What applies to the rich alfalfa hay also holds true with clover hays. Good quality clover hay is worth from 10 to 50 per cent, more in lamb feeding than timothy or sim- ilar grass hays. Proving the value of succulent roughages, it was. found also that good quality timothy hay plus mangels gave from 15 to 20 per cent more profitable gains than plover bay alone. A hay made from peas and oats, well cured, will pro- duce satisfactory gains but at least 10 per cent, less profitable than- al- falfa or clover or. a mixture of these with oat sheaves. Fine corn stover will also make profitable gains, but there is a large percentage of waste. a small amount may be fed satisfac- torily as a supplement to good quality leguminous or grass hay. Coarse hays commonly found In marsh lands are approximately 50 per cent less valuable in lamb finishing than good quality timothy hay and approximately 60 to 75 per cent, less efficient than clover or alfalfa hay. A limited amount of straw may be fed satisfac- torily in finishing lambs, but this should only be as a supplement to clover bay and roots. Generally- speaking, tie richer the hay and the better It is cured, the more profits will be made.In feeding it to lambs. Coarse dry roughages of any sort are less palatable, more wasteful and less profitable than arc the finer feeds of the same varieties. guccuSeot play .a very ishing of lambs is very light.

Thanks to great, rubber plantations' established, in the face of criticism and ridicule, many years before in her tropical Dominions, Great Britain at the outbreak of the war held a firm and'tightening grip on the world's supply of raw grip Reinforced by her dominating navy. From 60% m. 1914 the production of these plantations has grown this year to 75% of the whole world's output leav- ing only about half the requirements of the United States alone to come from all other sources. The result has been that the needs of the Allies, enormous though they are, have been -plentifully supplied, while Germany has been reduced to regis- tered mails.and the "DeutscWand" in desperate attempts to mitigate her rubber famine. Neutrals have been allowed all the rubber they want, at prices actually lower than before the war, so long as they prevent any of it from reaching the enemy, while Canada and other parts of the Empire have an abun- dant supply at equally favorable Government-regu- lated In thin gweroslty of the British lira the reason why rubb.r alone, of all the great not gone up In price-why rubber. increased cost of fabric, chemlcalu lid M aa while contlng dolta" a- Wearing ruhbw. or through thl. winter to. protect these cipeniiv.
