WILLS AT L6THBRIDGE, RAYMOND MAGBATH THE RIGHT HON. WALTER LONG A Man Who pught to Have Been Chosen Leader of the Unionist Party When Mr. Balfour Resigned TlWe is no man in England who is typical country 3ii every respect save the Ht. Hon. "Walter Long, chief secretary for Ireland In the late British Union- ist government, who is at present touring Canada, says a writer in the Daily Star. He is a man of hiany acres, with one of the most Charming, though not one of thc larg- bst, "country seats in England. He is !i staunch churchman of the moderate Church school- He is a sound 1 has won the House of Commons Steeplechase, is a lirst-rate rider to hounds, and was, in former days, a keen cricketer. What he does ;not know about those -mysteries of guano, and-grain 'hud sub-sqil, -and the -no wortli knowing. He is the Wot of th 'British farmers. In short, ho is Bright-down good fellow, open-handei hnd typical Englisl eijuire of the h-ast kind. Thc one respect in which Mr. Lonf 5s unlike the ordinary ElnglfsJi squirt is that a man of grea't not a brilliant ;nianf 'but a jnan who has filled many high office in the state, and lias filled them al with the average Eing lish squire's good hi has plenty of as a rule comprise any astounding mentality But that well-shaped head of Waltei Long's, 'with Its high forehead, con tains plenty of brains, and out of his well-formed mouth have proceedei come of Hie-best fighting politica speeches of tlt-a present day. Walter Long ought to have been chosen leader of the Tory party when. "Arthur Balfpur resigned. And he would have so chosen had no the jealous 'pushfnlness of the Bir .mingbam section c.f Unionism "queer e'd" his chances. He is mo-re of a persona grata with the church-and state men, who still form the most numerous, though not thc loudest voiced, portion of the Tory party, than is Mr. Bonar Law, who is nar rower in'his outlook than Mr. Long HP. has always been a protectionist and so did not need to become a ''tar- riff reformer" in the space of five iiiinntes, as did inoet of his colleagues The charge of being a political ad- venturer can never be brought iigniiiiii as ii. t> fevallect against the more brilliant P. B. Smith, for his stake in -the country is undoubted as is his disinterested- ness. As has been said, Mr. Long proved himself a good administrator, when In cilice. Ho is a good debater, and a platform speaker, with a taking style, though, perhaps, it cannot, be said of WEST HAS A BIG FOR EGGS Breakfast 'Table Industry Capable of Extensive Interesting .Facts A decade ago Canada was import- ing eggs to a value of about one and three-quartet million dollars. Last year exports were practically nil, while a value of about half a million dol- lars. Houghly speaking, the agricultural West in 1911 gobbled up Ml the East's spare "hen-fruit" and sonic millions from outside. How import- ant an industry it is that Canada is so overlooking may be guaged from the fact that the an- nual value of'poultry products in the United 'States is greater than that of either wheat-growing or dairying, am' more than equal to the combined value of sheep'and swine production. Where Prices Run Highest Interesting in this connection is a paragraph from evidence recently giv- en hefore the parliamentary standing committee on agriculture by Mr. A Gilbert, poultry manager at the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa: I "I had a v'isit Iron' a British Co- become: more- more general in thc West.

In, the course' of Mr. Gilbert's deuce before the committee, it -ras brought of it f-hat when eggs were sell- ing in Ottawa at 50 and 60 cents the dozen, they could be obtained at about It-all' that price within three hours' run of that city I Knowing tliis, i the farmer has usually grumbled "Why for poultry', when the gels most of the profit has lei it go at that, over- looking the fact that his own slow- ness' 'in marketing has been a chief factor against his getting tho top price which the public is willing to give for its favorite breakfast tahle delicacy when 'it- is absolutely fresh. Co-operation in Marketing Of course, not every farmer 'is so situated as to take advantage of Hie top-price market, however much lie strive. And, too, it is only by .work- ing in co-operation with his fctlows that he can secure for him self a fair share of what has ordinarily gone to thc middleman. Mr. Gilbert divides farmers into three classes. One, those near thc cities two, Ihoso near express offices or railway sta- tions three, those who are away back. The latter must be content io deal with thc -middleman, the coun- try store or drive a long distance. However, there are many districts Canada v.'here co-opera- tion would he of great advantage, and co-nperation is being carried on in ny- parts of thc country with great success.

This .surely demonstrates the advisability of turning the coarne products of 'the farm into fin ishcd products of 'high value easily placed on ttljc -market, and se- curing a large portion of the highly increased market value which the double freight charges now cause." .Well over dollars' worth of eggs -and poultry were brought into Alberta alone during For the-entire Middle not to mention British1-'Columbia thc total must already'be around worth-in a-single Canadian Finance.
