We are informed that the Cariboo
Mining Company, Camp McKinney,
are considering the idea of putting
twenty additional slumps onto the
Oarilxio in the spring, and working
their mill by water power by bringing
water iu pipes fjgm Hire croak from a
distance of ,-| mill, and a half. In this
case some of the stamps.-.-ten or fifteen, could be utilized for custom work.
There is no doubt that a custom mill
at either McKinney or Fairview would
be kept busy the year round, and pay
a handsome dividend,
A notice has been posted up in the
hotel at Penticton by Mr. W. Bullock-
Webster, collector at Osoyoos, calling
the attention of sportsmen, other
than those domiciled in the province,
to the clause in the game law to the
effect that it is neccsary to obtain a $50
licence before proceeding to hunt big
game. It would be well if notices to
the same effect were placed in other
prominent positions, so that strangers
might become acquainted with tlio fact
that such a law exists, as it would seem
by recent experience, it is possible for
hunting parties to come into British
Columbia and proceed to the hunting
grounds in ignorance of tlie fact that
such a licence is necessary, thereby
occasioning a great deal of unnecessary
trouble to the collectors and some
amount of annoyance to the bunts-
men. Granted that the tax is a just
one,, the stranger should be given the
option of paying the same or not by
u.#an.s being taken to bring the fact to
hjs notice before he has broken the
lojf, thereby becoming responsible.
Mr. J. Grozler of the Mission valley
certainly struck the right nail on the
Head when lie stated at a recent, meeting of the A. and T, Association at
Kejutrna (as reported hy the Vert|ou
News) that the ejs|i«rjiuenh>l 'farm at
Agassiz was of no practical value to
the people east of the Cascades. As
the climate of the coast and Interior
sections of the province are so utterly
dissimilar this is self obvious, and, as
a mutter of fact, the experimental station at Agassiz is of as much value to
the Okanagan farmer or orchardisl as
those at Indian Head, Ottawa or Brandon. Unless we are greatly mistaken,
a separate experimental farm for the
interior of the province w;[a advocated
in the second or third issue of t he Vernon News—a long time ago—and it
seems sli.ing.i that the matter should
have been let drop so quietly. This is
a question which might well be taken
HP by the Provincial Horticultural
Board. Experimental farms are useful institutions (this cannot be denied)
to those who live iu districts, the climate and soil of which are similar to
those of the place in. whicli the farm
is established, bnt to no others. Every
kind of pressure should be brought to
bear (political if necessary, as nothing
of the kind can lie accomplished, iu
Canada without some kind of political
influence being brought into play) to
IpfVP an experimental farm for the iu:
terior of the proviuce estaJiljiilied before next sprh|g,

that day and urrangeinents were accordingly made to give them a lilting
reception. After much cogitation it
was finally decided to erect an arch
just above the two bunks, and to further decorate Hint, portion nf the town.
The railway platform was also brightened up by a small arch bearing the
motto "(Ind save the Queen," und a
fine portrait of llpr Majesty. The
large arch had " welcome to Veppon"
on it in large lettering.
At about 1] a, in. on thu 2fith all Die
beauty and fashion of Vernon turned
out to meet the Incoming train, and
Mayor Martin went on board as soon
as it (iinpe iu and was introduced to
the party iu their cur, after which he
escorted them onto the platform.
After a fciy more introductions had
been miiilu and the hand having played
the national anthem, t)tp city clerk,
Mr. 11. .1. levies, came forward und
read uu address of welcome, which was
very nicely worded and gotton up.
His Excellency tljen look the address
and made a lengthy and very appropriate reply. Little Missus Martin,
Ireland and Ellison then presented
bouquets to Her Excellency and Lady
Marjorle, The civic body were then
introduced and the parties were then
led to the carriages waiting for them,
who were first driven to Mr. O'Keefe's
new road for a view of the town and
then back round by, the schoolhouse to
the Kalemulku hotel.
At one o'clock an excellent luncheon
was served to their excelleppjeg and
suite and about twenty invited guests,
whien passed off very pleasantly. The
vice-regal party then drove out to
their Qkaiiagan home, the .Coldstream
ranch, escorted by the '"mayor, aldermen and prominent citizens. Altogether, the reception given to the Governor-General and Lady Aberdeen was,
as it should have been, a very cordial
oue.

George Bohun Martin, 11, N., C. li.,
who was superintendent of the naval
dockyard at the time of his death in
1851. He was commander of the brig
" Mosquito " at the battle of Navarino,
and there won his rank of post-captain. Mr. Martin's grandfather- was
Mr. Henry Martin, Jf. P."fQP Jtfottillg-

the daughter of Sir Thomas Drlggs,

Mr. Martin intended to take a career

served in the Baltic in 1855 and the
next year in India, In 1801 hi! was
obliged to return in ill licall];, and in

Ihavaliw-n an extensive breeder of
sheep In Ontario, and I send you a few
practical hints en sheen raising. After
trying the effipjp.of dhtojeut kinds of
feed on my snoop, I same to the con.-
.elusion that thirl. W« nothing better
than good pea straw (half threshed),
with a little ground urnin in Bpring,
My-sheep did well im i{; lhey were in
good condition in Ul, spring, They
gave me less trnulile in lanibjljg, and
fhe lambs were largo aj)d healthy,
When I lirst starttnj Ui raisu jliei-p I
noticed that s$veroj ewes liifd fwin
lambs every ethic vear. I came to the
conclusion tho} by care ii. mating!
injglii. have a pair of largo, healthy
lambs each year from each qf my ewes.
This was my plan; I selected file lnrg
est ini'l healthiest twin ewe laaili; for
breeding pnrpQjWj then I secured n-
large % twin ram (« I (iould get; 1 uiatiai
them, nnil the result was Hint 1 had two
large, healthy JaUiliS from each ewe
eyrv year.
1 found, by selecting tlm largest
lambs each year, mv sheep Increased in
size instead of becd'afng smaller, Ire
ceivci! iho highest market price for mv
sheep and lambs, 1 might say that 'l
started with Cotswold ewes and crossoil
with a Lincoln ram; by nqing so I got i
fair i unit of wool of good Baiaple, u,ii<3
a largi'liinii'il, fleshy sheep,
I iiitutn) securing a few good sheep,
and my plan s'la!) bo the same in Muni-
tuba us In Ontario, 1 shall go further
nml select ewes that give the liirgost
amount of milk. I also believe that,
with care in selecting, I can have ewes
that will give mo three anil four lambs
each year, and Jurgo, healthy ones at

Fattening storrii.
A well-bnlanceil feeding ration, containing in the approximately proper proportions all the essential elements for
tho production of flesh and bone, necessitates the purchase of nitrogenous
foods not available ou tho farm, such as
cotton or linseed meal, or bran, To
ascertain whether farmers were justified
in paying high prices fur those extra
foods, says t'.ie American Agriculturist,
when lhey have annbijudaiico of maize,
has been the object in feeling experi
niehtsby R, II. Miller of tho Maryland
station (B. 22), One lot of grade Short
horn atari's were N on ti rr.t'.o1! ■>' ftf
teen parts, by weight, of corn and cob
meal, cotton seed meal flour, bran two,
cut turnips fifteen, corn fodder twontv,
and one part of molasses. A second lot
of tho same grade of steers received a
poorly balanced ration of tlie above
foods, omitting the cotton-seed meal ami
brim, their places hping taken by
an increased quantity of corn ain'i
cub meal. Tlin steers fed the well lml
anceil ration made an average daily
gain of 2,78 pounds; those given the
poorly balanced ration made an average
gain of 1,71) pounds, There was an increased profit of $7,0(1 per steer in favor
of the welMmlasccd ration, It was
s!:o; it thai with a well-balanced fewlini
ninety days is ample time in which tl
fatten a steer for market. Where tin
more nitrogenous fnijds are used, it i.-
believed that nearly as gnfli] daily gains
Uiui bo maile by mixing Ihp grain with
cut corn fodder as though bay were
used. Cut corn folder was, mure profit
able for feuding ti esc cuttle than hay!
making tlio result a gniu iiii-icini of „
loss. Fifty per cent, moro m/mnre win;
made from the nni'inaju '{-oceiriug the
well-balanced rntipn j.]ipn those receiving the poorly U'lluucul one, aud the
manure wits also much richer in plant
feud. Hence for fnffcning steers, a
wclMiuliiuceil ration is very much inoro
profitable than a poqrly balanced one.
lVlntof Cure of Stuck,
First look after tV young stock, says
the Orange Jiulil Farmer, Those deprived uf the mother's milk do not nuikc
it proper use of new food unless Iheir
ration is specially prepared. '',iti> the

straw tiiid corn feddor which is given

i-oiiio, ami ,ii the most attractive form,
A tv .,, once a day of routs or oilier veg.
dallies chopped tine, or ensilage, is needed; but if this cannot he provided, be
sure to have ou hand plenty of bran and
sonic oatmeal, Oats ure also excellent
as they furnish material for tlio build
ing up the frames of growing niiiiuitls,
but the dry hulls uiako it necessary to
give some of the laxative fond noted \
above. By properly mixing the inateri
als ra'sod o an ordinary farm one can
get a good ration. (llder slock need shelter from wiiula, particularly at niglit.iind
from severe gules nud storms al nil limes.
During zei'o weather, make use of all
available sources of warmth. Employ
un extra man if necessary io aid in slab'-

John M. Jatnioaiti writes entertainingly in lbe Ohiu Fiirmer on "What
Shall He Dune With Calves'!"   He says:
Tim farmer, ns a rule, has a strong
feeling tigninst Belling a thrifty steer
calf to the butcher, but delights iu sell-
ing n full grown steer, or would, if he
could fei 1 ibid he \v;i3 selling at a goo 1
price. W Idle ho will not sell a steer ciTlf
if lie can help it, he has no feeling
against selling the heifers unless they
are needed to replenish the herd.

A sillily of tha'directions in whiah a

conclusions, Fanners complain of the

Vei in some way they fail tn catch on to
the one line cf fatted stock that is open
io them without fear of successful competition,
A well fatted veal calf is always in
demand, whiio a poor one is usually
sold for what it will bring. It is our

.... been our custom ioholdtheaiiriii0
eii'. ns until fall and sell to fanners that
are always on the lookout lor such
stock. Last spring we changed thji
plan, thinking there was more profit to
us in selling at two mouths old than at
live, lit the same price. Wu had no
difficulty ill selling the calves as veal lit
live cents per pound, whereas, had we
i kept them till fall wu  could  not have
I sold [lii.'iu ;it more than 11 cents, prob
ably lit 3! cunts,' We gave them all the
nml:, or what they would take. One
weighed 1100 pounds ut about two
months old, anil was never for ll whole
day able I" lake all his ibuu's milk. The
other weighed 2,'id pounds when sold,
bnl after three weeks old did not have
all tlie mils' It WOllld have used.
Some tanners ask "what will we do
for sleets if wi) veal all the cnlves'l''
The point in tin- mailer is this—nil will
not do il, und the. money in calf growing is to those flirt do.
The bulk of the calf crop Ib dropped
in the spring, and if tlin calf is stiuiU' I
it is usually that the i'lii'inci's wife may

for family Biipplles. Now, would il not
be boiler (a give the calf the best posil-
ble eliaace. and sell it ut top prices as
j veal, and save the losing labor of buttoi'S
making, when it. iimst be sold so cheap'!

I'Yi'lllllir Cimvk  Dill-lug Milking.
There can lie no doubt on this subject,
as imiiile experieilce of our hest dairy
men and farmers havo proved it to he
the case. A cow giving twenty live
pounds of milk a day wnilu being fed
It milking, fell off to a quarter of that
weight in three weeks by having tlie
time of fie ling changed, and lieing'
milked by other hands. Both exerted
their special iiilluence. But what was
unusual was Iho regiiiuing the former
quantity of milk by again receiving the
former ration at milking time, and being again niilkod by the accustomed
milker, Another COW t|int had yielded
a large daily quantity of milk, h'l'i g
greatly fallen off in her mill!, was f d nt
milking time, and though milked i-y
the saute mini as formerly, regained her
usual How and quantity of milk. The
ration at milking time must have
brought the change. The family cow,
generally, is thin fed, and t',10 average
family cow is Iho largest milker. Tiie
Contentment of a feeding cow onuses
her to give down her milk in free and
full measure, Kind treatment, at the
same time, is paid for iu milk,—American Agriculturist,
