detachments of the covering troops
were sent forward to Belgian advance
posts as ffcelers.   The Belgians, when
possible,   concealed   themselves    In
thickets or fields and captured a considerable number of Invaders.
Belgian Lancer Capture* Muny
One Belgian lancer, named So-
gaerts, deserves especial mention.
His habit is to sally forth, lance is
poise, and go forward against a Uhlan, whom he generally kills or
wounds, whereupon the remainder of
the Uhlans, following ln single file.
give themselves up. In this way he
has taken fourteen prisoners, wounded several and killed three without
suffering the slightest Injury.
Already airships of different combatants float gracefully into visual
range of the Brussels population, but
at such heights that one can only
guess at the nationality of each. The
authorities arc warning tlie public
neither to fear nor attack the Uhlans.
Anxiety respecting Holland's neutrality ls not yet .wholly dispelled.
Nobody doubts the firm resolve of the
Dutch government to maintain its
right to hold aloof from the war, but
certain misgivings are entertained as
to the adequacy of the troops stationed ln the district where the violation of territory by Germany ls most
probable. A Belgian journalist narrates t he death of tlie reigning
prince, William of Lloppe, and his
son, as follows:

Main Armies Grow Nearer
Brussels, Aug. 12.—5.55 p.m. via

to determine Its objective. Tiiere Is a
stretch of cavalry in extraordinary
force along the whole front of the
allied army.
A new army corps Is Investing
Llege. The French cavalry is actively
engaged lu sharp lighting. Both the
Gorman and allied armies are feeling
their way.
British und French Concentrate
On thu report that operations on
au extensive scale were imminent, a
correspondent, by permission of the
war department, made a circuit along
twenty miles  of tile  Belgian   front,
Cranbrook's response to the effort
of the Daughters of the Kmplre on
behalf of the ladles of Cranbrook for
raising funds for providing and
equipping a hospital ship to be given
to the admiralty, was a generous oue
and the work of Mrs. H. 11. Leaman
anil Mrs, John Shaw in this regard is
deserving of the highest praise.
On   Monday   Acting   Mayor   J     K,
Campbell received the following telegram:

The allied forces have been so disposed as to be su] ported by a for-

thought that Brussels is heing used
as a bait to attract the Germans on.

Europe is now in the seething cnlil-
i run of war. Everywhere armaments
1 nre being perfected* troops mobilized
und tlu* harvest of deatli uud destruction ts following iu the wake of tho
hostile and moving armies. A long ■
und bittor Btruggle Is likely to ensue
with tho map of Europe tho sceno of
the theatro or war. For all of tlm toll
of death, tin* loss < [ money and destruction of property one man Is practically to blamo and ho la the Emperor ur Qermany. Upon hia head
should rest tin* blame, if he hud raised his voice tn counsel to the King of
Austria peace would have resulted
Austria started tlio holocaust and now
tiie Ocrman Emperor is carrying on
the burden. He Is nit i»r n mad man
ur the lust for power, the innate con-
celt in liis own prowess, 1ms turned
his head and at the present at least
"iiat nations are busily engaged in on-
denvorlng to crush him and the Ger-
man Empire. An ounce of respect'
for his bravado is overcome by the i
foolhardlness of his object the small!
conceit by whicli he lias precipitated
war on Europe und sure destruction !
' to ills own army und navy. Germany
will be defeated und tho result of the'
Emperor's profldy will bo visited upon
tho Innocent people or that empire.
Today lie is tlie predominating figure In
Europe, but liis hour <>r defiunr * lo
I -ivilization will be shortlived, und nt
| lie Is ambitious to live in tho .ilioe-j of|
. Xnpoleon we would suggest that \-. h
I'rivlleged to wear tin* crown that Nu
poleon wore at St. Helena or win*
other equally remote spot.
The European war has produced i;
i financial emergency in Canada whicli
| was on the verge of creating a panic
I for the lirst few days, but which has
! iteadlcd down some at the present
i time. Canudu is in a position witli her
i .ast wheat fields and varied resourci
; uf product.; of forest, mine and held
i to bn of great assistance to tlie em-
; tire in the present gigantic struggle
1 'n u few weeks when the war scan
nas subsided nnd economic conditions are more normal tho financial
'.Interests in this country aro to be
; put to the test. If Canada can find
: the moans to stand on her own feet
I ,md keep the legitimate enterprises
I Alive and give them tiie financial as-
j dstance necessary for Increasing
■ their production to meet the needs of
i the situation then Canada should pros-
j per and prove her vulue as un Jn-
| 'ogral ])art of the empire. On tlie
other hand, if the fields, forests and
factories are unable to finance, shut
downs will result, laboring men will
he thrown out of employment and tin
country will feel the pinch of want
and misery. Tlie news tliat the Atlantic is open to commerce should be
received with acclaim In Canada as
i It means that the crops will find
I ready markets nnd that every available necessity of life will bo required
at high prices.

The Kuropean war is the main current topic of tlie American press. The
Brooklyn tingle emphasizes the truth
tliat "It Is easy to find a stick when
you wish to bent a dog. On Austria
alone must rest responsibility, Servia stands freed of all responsibility.
Austria has noved been distinguished
for Justice to weak nations, Sue is
living down to her reputation. The
mere delivery or tho German ultimatum to itnssiu wus sufllcleni Indication
(tf warlike purpose. Her ultimatums
to Itusfliii mid France are peremptory
and  provocative,"

inorco  points out  tlmt "tho Servian j
government went as far as h could to!
cive satlsi'iiction and was violently rebuffed.   Austria used tlu* ussasslnn
tion of Ferdinand as a protoxt,   Kaiser  Wilhelm   11.  held  the  key to  tltO
situation.   Austria bud no adequate
reason for its assault on Servia. The I
prompt effort of Sir   Kdward tirey,
Iiriiish minister of foreign affairs, to I
have   the   severul   governments   exert I
Influence    for    tlie    preservation    of
pence  was rebuffed  by  Kaiser Wilhelm."
The New  York  Sun  foresees that
"history will lay heavy blame on Austria for the war.   There was nothing
i in the friction  between Austria aud
Servia   which   might   nut   liave  been
1 smothered   out   by   diplomacy.    But
Austria preferred tlie mailed list. Her
| ultimatum  wus a provocation to re-
! ststance  and  framed  to  incite  war,
( Servia's reply was u marvel of self-
control  and  earnest  desire  to avoid
j trouble.    The  Servian  note  left no
; icrap for grievance on which to base u
quarrel.   All honest sentiment must
bach Servia in her refusal to abrogate
ndependence and sovereignity."
Tin* spriugficld Republican explains
: tint "tiiere is a school of militarists,
■■ 'specially  strong   lu   Germany,  who
1 preach  the  Infamous  doctrine, condemned even by Bismarck, of a pre-
I tentative  war.    Austria's  attack on
•Servia   was   outrageous.     The   Aus-
. Irian   war  party   would  never  have
I dared take such u step witiiout an
! understanding   with   Qermany.   Aus-
! tlta  and  Germany   were  ready  for
war.   Action hud been resolved upon,
regardless   of   consequences.     Germany wanted a great war and wanted
>t now.    Germany and Austria had
chosen their time and were resolved to
itrlke.   They perceived that it is now
>r never and that the only chance for
their   ambitions    lay    in    attacking
France and  Russia  off their guard.
Phis is the hellish doctrine of preventive war, which even Bismarck, man
'tf  blood  und   iron,  denounced.    The
temptation  to  resort  to  preventative
war lias grown  with the growth of
trmaments,    To tuts appalling end
lias come the doctrine that mighty
armaments are Insurance again war
Qermany refused to lend countenance
•o mediation or to efforts at restricting the area of the war.   The first
blow was struck witli Machlevellian
cunning,   Germany dropped the musk
with her   declaration   of   war   upon
Russia.    Kngland goes into the war
I wltli  conscience elear.    Tills will  be
; 'civilized* war, but there is no civlllz-
1 ing hell."
i    The New York Tribune is empliatl-
) cully convinced tliat "Austria has tbe
1 responsibility for bringing on a gen-
-rul war.   That against Servia was In-
' spired by lust of empire.   The pretext
i was so flimsy that Austria did not
venture It to diplomatic nccommoda-
; tion.    The war will rank fn its In-
i 'option and Ignoble motives among
i the   most   wanton   and   discreditable
: tho world ever suffered from.   Austria stnkes political existence on the
I outcome.    Germany risks the splen-
'■ .lid commerce and mercantile marine
! -the has built.   Their military castes
feel tliat war Is better for them than
tin; losing struggle they were making
against the democratic revolution. Tlie
war spirit has been fomented.   With
| many ft lias become almost an obses-
| sion.     Tin*   Zaborn   Incident   shows
! how quickly Qermany reacts against
j even the must modest rebuke to mlll-
' tary insolence.    The recklessness of
\ Qermany und Austria fn precipitating
! war can  be explained only on the
ground tlmt a powerful and extensive
class welcomes war."
The  New  York Globe believes thut
sir [Edward Grey's address will g<>
into history as one of tlm great
Speeches of modern times. Britain's
wholehearted efforts to preserve tho
; peace were recounted. Sir Kdward
dispassionately pointed nut the duty
| of his country. Tiiere was no appeal
J to racial hatred, no jingoism, no clnp-
I trap. Kngland sounded ber call to
i battle only aftor she had done everything in her power to preserve honor-
I able peace. British statesmanship
; emerges untarnished. All charges
1 against Kaiser Wilhelm seem well
sustained. For the emperor's reck-
■ lessness in exposing Germany's commercial connections to destruction It
is impossible to assign any plausible
explanation, The extraordinary appeal to tlie English to remain neutral
suggests that some fnntastic Idea
j found lodgment ln the emperor's
i brain."
I Tho Hartford Times declares that
"this Austrian revenge on the innocent
Is an obsolete method as uncivilized
as the recklessness which brings on
a general war. The idea that a nation
can bo just Is something that an imperial government cannot understand.
Its members consider themselves superior to humanity. Iu that assumption they show tbcmselvoa inferior.
Tliey exemplify oue of the worst
traits iu human nature—pride without
worth. Christian civilization bas not
reached them."
The Kvening Wisconsin states that
"the exertions of sir Kdward Grey,
British minister for foreign affairs, fur
peace were made itt good faith and
with all possible energy."
The New York World thunders "The
(ieruiun people," as It discriminates
between them uud their government,
"bud no quarrel with anybody. Their
progress is stopped by autocracy.
Their emperor plunges Kurope Into
tlie must devastating confilct knowu
to history, because the reactionary
party wus determined to invito com
diet In order to stay tbe udvance of
political reforms. Every impulse to-
ward freedom lias beeu beaten back
by the mulled list. Austria's quarrel
with Servia was no affair of the German people, nor Russia's challenge to
Austria. Yet the fate of the German
empire is thrown into thc balance to
halt tiie march of freedom. It was not
Russian despotism ttiat was to be
crushed by Germany, but French republicanism. The hypocrisy is revealed In that, before the clash of
arms is fairly begun, Austrian Invasion of Servia is virtually abandoned.
Having begun the war, German autocracy finds itself isolated. Britain ls
compelled to make the cause of
France the cause of Kngland. Germany and Austria have no sympathizers even among neutruls. The whole
world's enlightened opinion has
turned against Emperor Francis Joseph and Emperor William. This is
the twilight of dynastic gods!"

at the slaughter houses. Everywhere
they^vere subjected to a continuous

breeding were openly threatened with
violence and all before the declaration
of war.
Twice Arrested
"Among the victims was M. Kasso,
former minister of education. Twice
lie was placed under arrest, lu spite
of the knowledge of his identity, and
packed Into a fourth-class carriage.
Councillor of State Schrefber and Ills
wife were assaulted by officers to
whom they ventured to complain
wives were separated horn husbands
und parents Trom tbeir children; no
consideration was shown either for

The Standard's Berlin correspondent says all persons at homo or abroad
who previously had been rejected by
the army as unlit for service have
been summoned to the colors.

Of all tiie great countries In the
world, only one, the United States,
bus kept Itself free from entangling
alliances, Witness the fully of last
week's scries of events. Austria
makes a demand on Servia which
was intended to humiliate that country. Servia tries to compromise, but
the Austrian guns refused time for
parley. Because Austria moved on
Servia, Russia moves ou Austria. Because Russia moves on Austria, Germany moves on Russia, France moves
on Qermany. Because France moves
on Germany, Italy must move on
France. Because Italy has moved on
France, France on Germany, Germany
on Russia, Russia on Austria, Austria un Servia, then the whole British
empire must move on somebody. If
flie I'nited States bad any alliances
whatever lt would be compelled to
follow ufter Great Britain, as Japan
will probably find it necessary to do.

The nursery rhyme was Intended to

Lo be equally foolish and equally
simple, If tlie lives of millions of human beings are to bu subject to the
llsustrous influences of these entangling alliances, some newer
method of grouping wlll be necessary. Iu tlie meantime Cnnudlaus wlll

"The scene witnessed at Sassnitz, a

In the Baltic sea, baffled all description. Some five thousand Russian refugees turned out on the quay, were
left to struggle for access to a

"The vessel was obliged to sail,
leaving .1000 of them tn despair, believing the last chance to return to
their country gone.

My Lord and My UodV-John 20t28
Never blame a man (or having legitimate doubts. Who knows what may
have given them birth. Perhaps tiie
environment in which lie wuh horn,
perhaps we ourselves may have been
the cause. More doubts are caused
by the ill-behavior ot certain Christians than by ail vaportngs of infidels, than by ratio,nistlc literature.
So, then, deal gently with tlie doubter,
but deal firmly.
This Is tiie position of Thomas, the
mult who utered the words which
form the text. When Jesus appeared
to his disciples, after the resurrection, Thomas was absent. To the absentee tlte Other dlaclplca said later:
'•We have seen the Lord." Hut
Thomas is not satisfied. "Except," he
says, "I shall see tn Ills hands the
print of the nulls, mid put my finger
into the print or the nails, and thrust
my hand into Ills side, I will not
Hut do not judge Thomas hastily.
Consider this fuct. When Jesus appeared to the other disciples, lie was not
accepted until "Me shewed unto them
Ills hands uud His feet." Thomas-
ts often blamed for his doubt; but
perhaps, he was no mort; a sinner in
that respect than the others. "Except
I shall see," he exclaimed. Tlie others
BaW, Permit Thomas the same privilege, although If he had believed without seeing It had been more to lib
One or two things I observe in
1. Honest doubt. He could not believe that Christ had risen, bucaiw*
he could not see that what to Mil
was supernatural was to Christ but
natural. In other words, he could no'
believe because he could not under
stand. If Christ had really risen, to
him lt must he demonstrated.
I have often said from my pulpit
and reiterate here, that the powers o'
reason are not stultified in Christianity. "In every man\" says St
Cyril, "Ood implants the root of un
derstandtng, and thus makes him a ra
tlonal creature." "Obedience to rea
son," remarks Thomas Aquinas, "Is n
preparation for obedience to God.'
Thomas, the disciple, reasoned; bu'
could not explain the resurrection
and, hence, his doubt. Imperfect
knowledge of Christ leads doubt
more Intimate knowledge of Him rr
moves it.
i, I'nbegrudging appreciation o'
the fart af the resurrection. 1
Thomas Is ready to doubt, when proo*
ts offered, he Is just as quick to believe, Jesus again appeared, and requested Thomas to put his finger in
the print of the nails, and his ham
into His side—but he refuse^
Enough that Christ stands beton
him, and with a heart of love, and
devoid of doubt, he cries, "My Lord
und My God!"
X I'm* of the personal pronoun
"■y.** This in Thomas is a (light oi
faith. No confession in the New Testament transcends this, not even Peter's
1 love the personal pronoun "my." ll
is so human, so expressive of per
sonul appropriation nf Christ, so Indicative of doubt scattered. Hear
Mobbs, "He is my God;" hear David,
"I will extol Thee, my God;" hear
Paul, "My God shall supply all your
need;" hear Jesus, "My Father"; hear
Thomas, "My Lord, und my Ood."
Friends, general terms are not sufll
rient. We must have such an understanding with Christ that with confidence we Mnuy exclaim, "My Lord
and my Ood." Another truly says;
'Happy the heart that has learned to
say 'My God.' All religion is contained In that short expression, nnd ull
blessedness that man or ingol is cap
able of."
"Hy their fruits ye shall know
them." Matt. 7.80. This passage Is
found lu tin* sermon on the Mount
Jchus ts telling Ills disciples I low
good trees and good men are known
It is same in the case of each- -by
fruit! This spring I planted holly
hock seed tn my gnrden as nn experl
ment. The growth was slow, and I
kepi pulling up whut appeared little
weeds. I thought that the hollyhock
seed was had, und that my eXpOCtB'
tlons were doomed to dbutppohitm"it
Hut I thought I would let some of the
nppnrent weeds grow, Judge my surprise when buds began to shout faith
nml today beautiful flowers «lve u t
their little fruits. A man's life ts his
pleasure, Hoys and girls, you see ih<-
point of the story—I knew them hy
their fruits. A man's life ts his
"fruit;" a boy's life is his "frnlt." Hy
our lives do men tell whether or not

Is plain!
Increase nf  Destruction by  Insects
Hue te Decrease of Insectivorous
Birds In Canada
In any discussion of thc protection
of bird life in Canada, considerable
opposition has always been manifested by the agricultural interests, lt Is
claimed that birds are responsible for
great damage to maturing fruits, berries, tomatoes, etc, and, earlier in
the season,-to the seed planted In the
ground. This Is true to a certain extent. But, as In the study of nny subject, there are two sides to the bird
protection question. The damage to
the fruits Is visible to the eye of the
! grower, and lie consequently waxen
i The other side of the subject is
: one with whicli the agriculturist is
j lesB familiar, Could the birdti place
[ tlieir dully food before those hostile to
j them, it would readily be seen to,
j what extent they serve the Interests of
those who are dependent upon the
I products of the soil.
An analysis of the contents of the
.stomach  of  thousands  of   birds   has
■ shown that 00 per cent of the food con-
| sisted of insects and 10 per cent of
vegetable matter.    UpwardB of 5,000
, Insects have been found In the stom-
| ach of one bird,    it has been estimated that the destruction by insects in
Canada amounts to approximately fifty million dollars annually.   Last year
the tent caterpillar wns very prevalent;  this year the army worm  has
i made its appearance mid Is cunning
great loss in the farmers In certain ,
sections,   it is known that, witli the
decrease In tlie number of birds whicli
annually reach Canada hi the spring,
tiiere lias been u constant increase in
the dOBtrUOtlotl by Insects.   It has also
heen stated that, It' all hlni lire were
destroyed, seven yearn would see the
"in!  of  vegetation   in   Canada,    This
llOB been the reason fur ail net ive campaign for tin* protection or birds. The
United Suites Congress lias passed an
net  for tlie protection  of migratory
birds,    nnd    Interested    parties    are
bringing the matter before the attention of the Canadian government.
Apart altogether from the practical view of bird life, tiiere Is the sen-,
tlmental side. What would Canada
he like witiiout our feathered friends?1
If we could no longer look forward to I
the arrive) of the lirst spring robin.
or of the wren or the wild canary,:
something would bc missing from our I
lives which wc could not replace.
This is a subject which should en-;
■zage the attention of school boards j
ind teachers. Thc pupils should be
taught to protect our feathered friends ;
and their nests. The Hoy Scout move-
ment lias taken up the protection of i
bird life and in their hands good work
is being done.
Canada is not satisfied only with
furnishing her brawn and muscle, per-
-•onlfled in her volunteers, to aid the
motherland in her hoir of trial. She
lias added to this by tier offer of one
million bags of flour. It is an offer
whicli hns been welt thought out. and
;ts significance 1s expressed by the re-
>ly which lias been received from tho
government of tlte United Kingdom.
Tlie answer to Canada's "splendid
ind welcome offer accepts it "with
deep gratitude" as "of (he greatest
value to the steadying of prices, und
relief of distress, in this country. We
■an never forget the generosity and
promptitude of tills gift, and the patriotism from whicli it springs."
When parliament meets an appropriation of nt least four millions will
be submitted to cover tlie cost of the
purchase and transportation .of the
flour. It is estimated that it will take
nearly 200 trains of SO cars to :i
train to carry the enormous quantity
to thc port of shipment, while a small
fleet nf vessels will be required to
carry the gift across the Atlantic,
in ihis ready offer of aid Canada
lias done no small thing. It is presumed lhat the announcement will
probably mean another early increase
in tlie price of tlonr constituting a
direct war tax upon the people. Hut
this anticipation will not disturb the
sons aud daughters of the nomfuion
Whatever the result tt will be borne
with equanimity with the sume spirit

THK MllKliM,
Ottuwa, Aug. fi.—It Is probable tlmt
General Lessnrd, district oltlcer commanding at Toronto, will be selected
to command Canadian army division
now being mobilized at Quebec. Col
U*ssard's knowledge oi' French, which
would be necessary In u Kuropean
campaign, aud his actlvo service experience and proven ability, make him
the choice of most of tlie military authorities.
The minister of militia has peen
asked by tho government to forego
his own desire to personally take
command and will remain at his post
here, lt Is very doubtful if the Canadian forces wlll go out of Canada at
all. The Imperial government has
not asked as yet for any expeditionary force and at the present juncture
believes tlmt Canada's first duty is
tn take all possible precautions for
local defence.
A report that prisoners of war taken by Oreat Britain will be brought
to Canada Is not authoritative, but tt
is a quite probable development of the
war. The sending of the prisoners to
Canada would remove them a long distance from the scene of strife and be-
Hldei they could be more easily und
cheaply fed In Canada during the
period of war.
The privileges extended to general
shipping will md extend to merchant
hips, should they show by their
build that they are Intended for conversion Into warships for tbe enemy.
Merchant ships allowed to depart will

eternal courtesan, lllrts with all. In
hor lialr-ornuiuent of diamonds and

represents the name of war that the

guns and musketry.
The second torch bears the flame of

After 1925 I see a change in religious sentiments. The second torch of

lias almost vanished. Humanity is
without the moral feeling. But a great
reformer arises. He wlll clear the
world of the relics of monotheism

mmortallty will be molten into a new
furnace, and I see the peaceful beginning of an ethical era. The man determined to this mission is a Mon-

An extensive urogram of the drilling
ol' eighty ull wells hus been announced by the Canada Oil und Venture
Corporation, Ltd., on their properties
in the Flathead Valley, This means
the greutest stimulus ever given at
one single stroke to the Canadian oil
world. The property owned by this
company ure the holdings of Sir
I Chas, Tupper, part of It beiug ud-
i joining tin* Flathead Petroleum company und part on Klsli-E-nah-nd
: creek.
The great program lias been decided
upon after n most exhuustive examination which shows conclusively tliat
the Flathead Valley offers the best
possible Indications for securing oil in
paying tiiinntitles..
The men behind this company liave
not urnii*  Into the proposition  blindfolded but liave looked at the matter
1 from every angle and, backed by the
i reports  nf the  lending  geologists of
Hie day, have decided thnt now Is the
! lime to strike.   Consequently, within
the next few months machinery galore
j will be going over tlie country Into the
district and wells will be sunk on tin:
1 property of the company with expedition.
; The facts arc that the Canada Oil
! .mil Venture Corporation, Ltd., yester-
. dny entered into a contract with a
1 llriii of California contracting drillers
to drill eighty wells on the company's
; property in the Flathead. Drilling
operations will be commenced In tin.*
near future and will be prosecuted
I with nil due dllfgence, There will b«
, continuous drilling every hour of [lie
! lay and night until tlie lirst w-Ml is
Irllled to a completion of 3.000 teet
unless oil In commercial qufintity Is
an coun torod before that ueptll is
: reached.
Tills territory has heen proven beyond any doubt und this tlrst welt will
produce on nn uverage of frum 20 te
10 barrels u day of oil or a gravity
of from 40 to 4" at a depth of from
i 700 to 1000 Teet.
j The contruetors have made tlie i osl
j thorough examination of the proper*
j ties of this company nnd also adja-
■ cent properties und are ja favorably
I impressed   witli  tlie  general   ind'ea-
tions that they are convinced I but oil
in paying quantities will be developed
nni tliey have therefore agreed to nc-
cept payment in oil for tlie drilling
>f tlie seventy-nine remaining wells.
One of the contractors stated yesterday that tliey would porhaos Int'tal
, live or six drilling outfits on tV Canada Oil und Venture Corporation's
property immediately the completion
of tho drilling of the lirst well wan
■ He further stated that they would
prolmbly allow thirty days for the
treating of the production und then
start an   extraordinary campaign of
; drilling on the property. If drilling
, oporattons bear out the present san-
' gulno belief of the contractors as to
; tli" depth at which oil will be struck,
I which is In accordance with the facts
concerning wells nearby and whicl:
j arc producing, they will be able to
: complete a well with each drilling rig
! within sixty days. This means that
i five or six wells will be brought in
I at about thc same time.
! The contractors expect to complete
; and put on a producing basis from
I fifteen to twenty-live wells by the
; coming fall. They will continue
I thereafter until the entire eighty wells
{ are drilled to production depth.
It Is thc plan of the compnny and
! also tlio contractors after u number
; of the wells urc completed aud on n
: production basis tu drill one or mure
| wells to a depth of 3,000 feet or be-
I youd so us to thoroughly explore tlie
{ deeper stratus. It Is the belief of tlu
! contractors tliat au immense production will be obtained ns u result uf
drilling down to the lower depth. If
I tills contention Is borne out by the
j facts It will he an eusy matter to
deepen all of the wells then bearlnp
I ull   lu   the  heavier   producing strata
without losing the production of the
upper oil sand as the easing there can
be perforated and the production ma-
; tcrlally Increased.
!    The contractors Intend to use every
! precaution against accidents and de-
' lays.   A selected crew of old time and
experience drillers who huve drilled
| in many fields on tlie American continent will drill thc tlrst well.     All
■ the water will he properly cased off
' and u complete set uf fishing tools and
mider-reamers will  be added to the
! equipment.   Every precaution will be
taken  to  keep  the  easing   free  und
thereby avoid it becoming frozen in
tlie hole, which is a common occurence
with many Inexperienced operators for
It causes much delay nnd great expense and frequently the Iobh of the
The officers of the company stated
that the contract had been entered
into only after the most careful Investigation us to the ability nnd reputation of tho contractors. They
liave learned from the most reliable
sources that these contractors havo
never lost a hole In drilling operations
In which they have been Interested
iu the development of muny fields on
the American continent. Their work
has Included the drilling of scores of
wells In California, Mexico and elsewhere. They have to their credit of
laving brought in muny of the famous
gushers of the Maricopa and Midway
Flats, ln the Maricopa Flats of California they were the pioneers. In all
instances they tlrst examined the territory to be drilled personally and then
proceeded with operations nnd In

I have pleasure in presenting my
report tor the last month's diary inspection.
With the warm weather It has been
rather a hard task to handle the
milk; also this dry weather has caused the feod supply for the cattle to
greatly diminish, and the milk has
fallen oft' in quantity, also in quality.
Mr. Bardgett has been gradually
improving every test, but he has not
quite reached the government requirements In a milk test yet: first
month It was 2.VA; second month It
was Wh, and this month lt was 3.2','<,
The government says It must be S.2V6
The different testB are as follows:

W. B. Bardgett      8,8ft
Joe Taylor        3. </->
The general condition of the dairies
are In very good condition, and the
milk Is being handled ln a very sanitary way.
I have made In all ten visits to the
different dairies and made six tests
of milk.
J. W. Rutledge,
Dairy Inspector.
His report was received and 'Hod
and the following motion was passed.
That the attention of Mr. W. B. Bardgett be called to the fact that his milk
has never been up to the standard
government test and that he bc notified that unless his milk Is brought up
to the standard that he will not be
permitted to sell milk In tlie city
limits. '
