NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE.
FLOCK TO CANADA
Immigrants of High Order Set-
tlmg on Western Plains.
Removal of Restrictions Necessary Dun
Ino the War Has Shown World'
Faith In Dominion's Future..
For n period during tho Into wnr,
nd for n while after Its close, there
was put Into operation by tho Cnuadhui
government legislation restricting cer.
tain classes and people of the countries
which were not lined up with the allied
nations from being admitted to Canada.
Thla was quite necessary, and the mi
aous for it will be so apparent that
they need not be give. However, the
time came, in the early summer of this
yeur, when It was deemed possiblo to
remove some of these restrictions. It
was found that there were many who
came under their ruling that were pf
a class that Canada needed and who
ueeded Canada. The restrictions,
doubtless, were drastic, but were need
ful. The news of their removal, sent
broadcast has met with such n re
sponse as to give ample evidence that
they had not killed interest In Canada,
and that faith in tho Dominion as a
country where u new existence, happy
and fruitful, was as complete as ever.
As has been stated by one writer deal
ing with this subject, "tho opening of
the doors a little wider lias but dis
closed the dammed-up state of tho
Btream, which, given freer release, Is
pouring in fuller force over the Do
minion." As to the moral effect of the legisla
tion that enabled these restrictions to
bo carried out, it showed that while
Canada was seeking settlers, Its lands
and its homes were not Intended as a
shelter for those unable to meet the
standard set as Canada's laws of civ
ilization, the concessions which have
removed these restrictions still hnvo
In view the maintenance of this stand
ard, and those who are still allowed
In are subject to the same require
ments that have prevailed for years.
As pointed out by the writer previously
quoted, "Canada has successfully im
pressed on those countries from which
she draws her people that her prime
and crying need Is for those who ayill
go on land, and of those entering the
country the bulk is composed of agri
culturists. Every country which has
formerly 'contributed to Canada's pop
ulation has resumed its mission to Its
"The lowering of the barriers has
had a farther-reaching effect than the
entry Into the country of many for
merly debarred by reasons of financial
stringency. It has had u moral effect.
The restriction was rightly regarded
as an Indication of Canada's Internal
economic condition, vand many persons
and families of comfortable means con
templating Canadian settlement were
discouraged from doing so. In the re
moval Is seen the first blush of the
dawn of better days, and consequently
mnny of those arriving -are In a condi
tion to establish rapidly and securely.'
"Though Canadian Immigration falls
broadly Into tho two classes, British
and American, many European peoples
have contributed In a large mensure to
the agricultural development of. the
Western provinces, and it is grntifylng
to note the same healthy Interest In
Canada evinced by the most desirable
"Amongst those from the European
countries are Serbians, Poles, Swiss,
Roumnnlans, Dutch, Jugo-Slavs,
French, Danish, Norwegians, Swedes,
Finns and Lithuanians. All have con
stituted fine, desirable cltlzen-bulldlng
material, as the few detentions and
lesser deportntlons benr testimony.
Furthermore, the disturbed Industrial
conditions of the New England states
have resulted hi the commencement of
nn exodus of French-Canadian families
back to their old homes, which may
reach an appreciable size.
"On all sides this awakening of In
terest Is evident. It Is a new faith
borne on the crest of the wave of
brighter prospects, the dawn of a fuller
realization, In the continued Inability
of many other countries to emerge
from the economic slough Into which
the wnr plunged them, of the desirabil
ity of Canada as a country more rapid

BUGS BY SPRAYS
Countless Millions of Insects May
Be Destroyed by Use of
BULLETIN OUTLINES SCHEME
Thrfte Periods When Pests May Be De
stroyed Most Effectively Co-op.
eratlon Among Neighboring
Farmors Most Essential.
(Prepared by the United States Department
Barriers of various kinds arc one of
the most effective ways of controlling
chinch bugs at wheat harvest time
when they migrate from the smaller
grain fields to the row-crop llelds.
Countless millions .of the bugs may
often be destroyed also by- using nico
tine sulphate spray in the wheat stub
ble, Immediately following the binder.
How to light this pest by these meth
ods is described in Farmers' Bulletin
1223, The Chinch Bug and Its Con
trol, by J. It. Horton and A. F. Sat
terthwalt, scientific assistants in
cereal and forage insect investiga
tions, bureau of entomology, United
States Department of Agriculture.
There are three periods, the bul
letin states, when chinch bugs may
be destroyed most effectively: In No
vember and December, by burning or
plowing down their hibernating places;
in May and June, by spraying in wheat
fields with otl-emulslon nicotine sul
phate, and trapping In barriers,, follow
ing by spraying in marginal rows of
corn, if necessary; and in September,
by plowing corn stubble deeply before
the bugs have gone to winter cover.
Chinch bugs spend the winter large
ly In bluestem and other bunch grasses
in pastures, neglected fields, roadsides,
sunny hill slopes, and similar unculti
vated places. These should be burned
over in November and December, and
unused areas kept ns clean ns possi
ble. The bugs leave their winter quar
ters In early spring, migrating to fields
of wheat, oats, and other small grain
until it is nearly ripe and then at
tacking the corn and other row crops.
Trap strips of millet, oats or rye
should be placed between the winter
quarters of the chinch bugs and the
nearest fields of small grain.
Fully $40,000,000 worth of wheat,
corn, oats, grain sorghum and broom
corn Is destroyed annually by chinch
bugs. They occur over the entire
United States east of the Rocky moun
tains, so that there are few climatic
conditions which they are not able to
wltlistand. Fungous diseases and para
sitic enemies of the chinch bug arc of
little help in reducing its numbers.
Aggressive work against these In
flects is more profitable than defensive
work, the bureau of entomology be
lieves. Co-operation among neighbor
ing farmers In ridding their fields of
chinch bugs by spraying is absolutely
essential. If the bugs are destroyed In
one field but unmolested on a neigh
boring farm they will quickly relnvade
the territory from which they were

LEADING BREEDS OF
GEESE FOR MARKET
Toulouse and Emden Are Most
Popular in This Country.
All Utility Breeds Are Kept for Pro
duction of Flesh and Feathers
African Is Rapid Grower and
Six breeds of geese have been ad
mitted to tho American standard of
perfection, namely, Toulouse, Emden,
Chinese, African, Wild or Canadian
and Egyptian. In addition to tho
standard breeds there is tho so-called
mongrel goose, which is a hybrid mado
by crossing one of these varieties, or
tho common goose, with wild geese.

most popular breeds of geese In this
country, the first two greatly leading
tho other breeds. All utility breeds
of geese are kept primarily for tl'o
production of flesh um feathers; and
although their eggs are occasionally
used for culinary purposes on tho
farm, there Is no demnnd for them
for food purposes In tho markets.
The Toulouse, the largest of tho
standard breeds of geese, Is a good
layer, producing from 20 to 35 eggs a
year, is docile, grows rapidly, and
makes a good market bird. However,
its dark pinfeathers make It a slightly
less attractive market goose than tho
The Emden, a large white goose,
slightly smaller and with somewhat
longer legs than the Toulouse, is only
n fair layer and Is usually less pro
lific than the Toulouse. Tills breed
has white pinfeathers, Is a rapid grow
er, and matures early.
The African, a gray goose with a
distinct brown shade, about tho size
of the Emden, Is a good layer and
makes a good market goose, although
It has the objectionable dark pinfeath
ers. It Is a rapid grower und matures
Thero are two standard varieties of
Chinese geese, the Brown and tho
White. Both varieties mature early
and nre said to be prolific layers and
rapid growers, but shy and rather dif
ficult to handle.
WISE TO BURN DEAD ANIMALS
Big Bottle Flies Breed In Decaying
Animal Matter and Depreda
tions Cause Loss.
The big bottle files are obundant In
warm weather. There aro several
kinds of files that Infest wounds on
nnimals, and all of them breed In de
caying anhnal matter. The bureau of
entomology tells us that If all dead
animals could be disposed of properly,
no cases of infestation of living ani
mals would occur.
A wound on n fine bird often causes
death because of tho depredations of
these flies. It Is not unusual for a
bird to' bo In bad shape before tho
owner knows It Is hurt. The only safe
way is to burn dead nnimals, and dis
infect n wound promptly. Limber

Orchard grass Is a standard grass
which endures hot weather better
than timothy and also seems to thrive

are Its bunchy habit of growth and
tho tendency of the huy it makes to

PRACTICE OF PASTEURIZING
Dealers Know That Milk So Treated
Keeps Better and Prevents
Spread of Disease.
(Prepared by the United Htatea Department
Tho practlco of pasteurizing milk is
growing rapidly in tho cities of this
country, ns shown by figures collected
by tho United States Department of
Agriculture. Through pressuro of
health departments and through volun
tnry action by milk dealers, plant after
plant has been switched over rrom raw
milk. It is now generally recognized
by those who havo studied tho prob
lems of milk supply, that proper pas
teurization docs not Injure tho clmml
col or nutrltlvo properties of milk, and
that it does destroy all bactcrln that
may produco disease Milk dealers
know that milk so treated keeps bet
ter and satisfies customers, and that
It prevents outbreaks of dlseaso which
might cast discredit on their product
and injuro their business.
With these facts in mind it is onsy
to sco why tho pructico has grown. In
1015 only 77.8 per cent of tho cities
with, population of moro than 500,000
reported moro thnn half of their milk
pasteurized, whllo In 1021 every city
in this class had a milk supply moro
than 00 per cent of which was pas
teurized. In 1015 moro than 10 per
cent of the cities of 75,000 to 100,000
peoplo hnd no pasteurized milk, but
during tho past year all of them hud
some port of tho supply pasteurized.
Tho increnso In pasteurization In
small cities is particularly striking.
Take, for example, thoso from 10,000
to 25,000 population. In 1015 about
40 per cent hud pasteurized milk, but
In 1021 nearly 01 per cent had it. Even
In cities below 10,000 population pas
teurization is becoming moro common.
KEEP CREAM DURING SUMMER
If Cooled to 50 Degrees Promptly
After Separating It Will Keep
Tlw dairyman must figure a way to
keep tho cream in good condition dur
ing tho hot weather mouths. Thero Is
always someone saying "cream can't
be kept sweet very long during tho
summer months," but it hns been
proven that cream cooled to 50 de
grees shortly after separating can bo
kept sweet for several days.
To accomplish this, it Is necessary
to have a cooling tank. Such tanks
may bo bought from tho dairy supply
houses, but if only a small quantity
of cream Is produced n homemade
tank will do tho trick. This tank Is
made as follows:
Take a water barrel and nround It
moke a box about 3 feet squaro by
about tho height of the barrel, Insert
a plpo leading from the pump Into the
Cooling Tank for Cream.
barrel extending to tho bottom. An
overflow plpo is then plnced on the
opposite side of tho barrel leading to
the outside of the box. This overflow
pipe should bo placed as high as tho
neck of a largo cream can. The intake
pipe from the pump should extend to
tho bottom of the barrel as the warm
water then rises and overflows.
Tho space between the box and tho
barrel Is filled with sawdust or other
insulator and the box Anally covered
to tho edge of tho barrel. A closo fit
ting lid is then placed over the top of
tho barrel and completes tho tank.
When a partly filled can Is set down
a stick across tho barrel above tho can
will help to hold It down. A Mlllor,

Benny Levy, who hns broken up
