ALLEGANY COUNTY NEWS, WHITESVILLE, N. Y. WONDERFUL PROGRESS IN CANADA It Is Over the Hill—Splendid Bank Clearings, and the Crop RetuLis Reveal Vast Possi­ bilities for the Future. “There are opportunities for invest­ m ent in Canada now th a t may prove attractive to American capital. Land prices in the west are low and wages less than on this side of the line, and whatever the outcome of the war, the future of the Dominion is assured as one of prosperity in the development of its v a st resources.” (Chicago Tribune. A Hiiort, aeo Trv^ frov- ernm ent asked for private subscrip­ tions to a loan of fifty million dollars. Less than a month was given for com- pletion of the subscription. On No­ vember 30th, the day upon which sub­ scriptions were to cease, it was found that 110 million of dollars had been subscribed or 60 million dollars more I ^ than the amount asked. If there were I? any so pessimistic as to imagine that Canada was passing through a period of hard times the wonderful showing of this subscription should put aside all doubts of Canada’s rapidly increas­ ing prosperity. The bank clearings of Winnipeg for 1915 were a billion and a half of dol­ lars. Think of it. Then, in addition there were the bank clearings of the other cities throughout W estern Can­ ada. Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw also show big increase in clear­ ings. The Winnipeg statistics show . that the city has done the biggest financial, commercial and industrial business in its history in 1915. A billion and a half are big clearings, representing business on a per cap­ ita basis of over $7,000 per head for every man, woman and child in the city, and has gone ahead of big man­ ufacturing cities like Buffalo, and runs a close second to Detroit. It has shown bigger bank clearings than the middle west cities of Minneapolis and Duluth, and has exceeded Los Angeles, Seattle and other noted ship­ ping cen ters. It is n o w sid e by side with the ten biggest cities in North America in amount of bank clearings. B u t b e c a u s e th e w a r h e lped Canada reco v e r qu ick ly from a natural eco­ nomic depression it does not follow that, at the end of the war, the coun­ try m u s t suffer a relap s e , and stra ig h t ­ way return to a state of inactivity and hard times. A W’innipeg paper, with a well- known reputation for conservatism in economic m a tters says: Canada’s undeveloped fielrls should prove a mighty factor after the war in adjusting the country’s business from one period to another. The staggering figures of this year’s crop, showing in­ creases in production of 50 per cent over last year, give a slight idea of the future wealth stored in vast stretches of prairie plain yet untouched by the plow. The Northwest Grain-Dealers’ As­ sociation on September 1 estimated that the wheat crop of the three Prairie Provinces would amount to 250,800,000 bushels. On November 10 that esti­ m ate was increased to 307,230,000 bushels. The Dominion government on September 13 estimated the W est­ ern wheat crop at 275,772,200 bushels, but on October 15 those figures were changed to 804,200,000 bushels. Monetary Returns for the Western Crop. And the amount of m o n e / which the west is receiving for its grain has not yet been wholly appreciated. Up to the 10th of December the Canadian west had received some 170 million dollars for 182 million bushels of its grain crop, of which 149 million bush­ els was wheat. The average price of No. 1 Northern wheat for September was 93% cents; for October 98% cents, and for the first three weeks oi November $1.03%. On the 10th of December there was fully 120 million bushels of wheat to be marketed. This would leave about 30 million bushels for local consumption in the Prairie Provinces. B r a d s t r e e t s a y s : “Confidence seems to have returned in Canada; grain crops are exception­ ally large, prices pay the farmer, and the war-order lines provide work and aid in circulating much money. Credit is more freely granted, and interior merchants are disposed to buy rather liberally.”—Advertisement.

W HITE, Mississippi AgTicul- tural College.) At this season of the year an ex­ traordinarily large number of young or­ chards are being planted throughout the southern states. All these young orchards should he headed hack right now. Truly a stitch in time saves nine in this heading back operation, for it will save many cuts later on in the life of the tree. Peach and plum trees should be headed b a c k to a single stem 15 to 18 in c h e s ab o v e th e ground. Apple and pear trees should be headed back to 18 to 24 inches from the ground. C a r e should bo ta k e n to m a k e sur© th a t six to eight healthy buds are left below the heading back cut, for the b e s t o f th e s e w ill b e the futu r e m ajor limbs of the tree. There are five reasons for having the trees close to the ground instead of “trimming them up” skyward, where only \an agile climber armed with an extension ladder can relieve them of their fruits. These reasons are; 1. Low headed trees are more eas­ ily pruned. 2. Low headed trees are more eas­ ily sprayed. 3. L o w headed tre e s are m o r e ea s ­ ily picked, 4. Low headed trees have fewer wind-fallen fruits from high winds. 5. Low headed trees shade the trunk of the tree against sun scald. If two-year-old trees are planted they should not be headed back to a single stem, but their limbs should be cut back one-half. Besides the five energy-conserving reasons for heading fruit trees low, there is still another very important reason. It conserves one’s religion. If you can stand on the ground while pruning, spraying, and picking you will find that your religion is far saf­ er than if you had to do these opera­ tions high among the whipping branches of the trees. This useless and barbarous prac­ tice of heading trees so high th a t a giraffe cannot even pluck the lowest branches m ust have come down to us from past ages when that animal was more plentiful and when his depreda­ tions upon orchards were serious. To­ day the danger from this source is minimized, with the result that ail farm ers Tvho are not troubled with this animal should n ot h esitate to head their fruit trees down near the ground. SAVING BEST FARill AND GARDEN SEEDS Doubtful Stock Should Be Dis­ carded When Best Can Be Procured Without Trouble. Corn for next spring’s planting should he stored on the cob where it will keep dry and free from vermin. It keeps best on the cob, and spread out on the floor of granary. Sugar com may he braided and the ears hung up in the granary. Oats and barley for seed should be run through the mill to blow out ail the light grains and foul weed seeds. Only the heaviest grain should be sowed; light, chaffy grain is not worth sowing, as the grain lacks vitality. Early seed potatoes keep best stored in narrow pits dug upon high, dry ground. Practical gi’owers make the pits 20 inches deep and one foot in width. This trench is filled with pota­ toes level full and covered w ith six­ teen to tw enty inches of earth, well packed down. A six-inch furrow is plowed a few feet out from the pits to carry off the surface water. Potatoes pitted by this method will keep sound and firm of flesh and will have well- developed eyes. Burn up all the old vegetable seeds and buy a new stock from a reliable seedsman. Our present postage laws bring a seed store to every man’s door, and he has n o oxcuse for planting seed that are most too good to throw away, but not quite good enough for plant­ ing. Doubtful seeds will n ot pay when good ones can he had at moderate prices. AGRICULTURAL IMPORTANCE OF SUNFLOWER Sunflowers Raised on White Farm, Owned by George Smith, Near Scotts* vllle, Va. Frequent inquiries are received at tb© Washington experiment station concerning the growing of sunflowers. Doctor Cardiff, director of the experi­ m e n t station, gives the following in­ formation on this plant as an agri­ cultural crop: The sunflower is an im p ortant agri­ cultural crop, though it has not been used to any great extent in this coun­ try. It is cultivated quite extensively in Russia and used for a variety of purposes. It makes excellent silage, especially when mixed with corn and shmo legume ip about equal parts of each. The seed has an unusually high oil and protein content. On account of the latter its\ growth rapidly ex­ hausts the nitrogen fro£b the soil and, therefore*, if grown successively on land, the soil will require considerable fertilizer. The oil portion dees not exhaust the soil since the elements from which oil is made come from the air and water. The seed is used in the production of oil, which is extracted by compres­ sion, and is of value for table use, cooking purposes, and in general the same use as is made of ohve oil. In Russia the seeds of the larger seeded varieties are sold as peanuts are in th is country, and ea ten raw py the people. WHAT IS URIC ACID? T H E CAUSE OF BACKACHE, RHEUM ATISM , LUMBAGO Ever since the discovery of uric acid in the blood by Scheele, in 1775, and the bad effect it had upon the body, scientists and physicians have striven to rid the tissues and the blood of this poison. Because of its over­ abundance in the system it causes backache, pains here and there, rheu­ matism, gout, gravel, neuralgia and sciatica. It was Dr, Pierce who dis­ covered a new agent, called “Anuric,” which will throw out and completely eradicate this uric acid from the sys­ tem. “Anuric” is 37 times more po­ tent than litfiia, and consequently you need no longer fear muscular or ar­ ticular rheumatism or gout, or many The closer you get to some people the more distant they are. other diseases which a re dependent on an accumulation of uric acid within the body. Send to Dr. Pierce of the Invalids’ Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., for a pamphlet on “Anuric,” or send 10 cents for a trial package of “Anuric” Tablets. If you feel that tired, worn-out feel­ ing, backache, neuralgia, or if your sleep is disturbed by too frequent urination, go to your best store and ask for Dr. Pierce’s “Anuric.” Dr. Pierce’s reputation is hack of this medicine and you know that his “Pleasant Pellets” for the liver and his “Favorite Prescription” for the ills of women have had a splendid reputation for the past fifty years. Profitable Mystery. “How did you leave all the folks out home?” “First-rate,” replied Senator Sor­ ghum. ‘T told them I was going to see if I couldn’t straighten out a few problems for the government between now and spring. That cheered them up a great deal.” “To what problems did you have ref­ erence?” “Oh, nothing in particular. I never go into details with my constituents. If you go to explaining things, you are liable to make them sound so easy that the voters get to thinking they don’t need you.”—W ashington Star.
