It is especially requested that
every member will make a point
of being present. Matters of
supreme importance will be up

The Board of Trade has an
opportunity' of doing much fer
the future of Cumberland and it
is up to the business men to support their organization to the
utmost of their ability.
Business men should remember
that the development ol' Cumber-
lard means dollars to themselves.

Mr R. H. Travers, contractor
for thc cement pavement, has
commenced tearing up the wooden sidewalks on Dunsmuir avenue and is grading and preparing
to replace it with concrete.
It has been suggested by several who are interested in the welfare of the city and district that
all those citizens who own corner
property on Dunsmuir avenue
should have the cement walk continued around the coroner of their
property to the alleyway of the
street ent ■ring, the avenue,
which would certainly increase
the appearance of the property.
We understand tiiat Wesley
Willard, who owns ihe Comer
at third street and Dunsmir avenue where the Royal Hani, is sii -
uated, has c'eclared his intentio i
to carry the walk around his
property, M r Kierstoad and Aid.
Maxwell will then carry it
on to the next avenue above,
which will give the property a-
round the Post Office a good appearance.

most influential men of the city

Mayor McLeod, occupied tlte
chair. He pointed out to the
meeting that the executive agent
Mr. McMicking, was present, and
now was the time to make their
complaints concerning the telephone service.
Most of those at the meeting
spoke strongly, deprecating
the present unsatisfactory service, and urged in a most insistent manner three sepa-ats reforms, viz.. An improved all-
round service; The presence of a
resident manager; and An all-
night service.
These three points were urged
over and over again and the
executive agent could not fail to
be impressed with the necessity
for reform along these lines.
Mr. McMicking. whilst not in
position to guanantee any redress,
assured the meeting that he
would submit the various reports
to his board of directors, and
stated that he had every hope
that his company would meet the
wishes of the board of trade in

Tire You Blue and Worried ?
Nervous P Snme of the time really ill ? Ctitoh oold easily and frequently suffer
irom biliousness or headache? The reason is that your system does not rid itself
of the poisons in the hlood; just as impossible as it is for the grate of a stove to rid
itself of clinkers. The waste does to us exactly what the clinkeri do to the stove;
make the fires burn low until enough, clinkers have accumulated and then prevent
its burning at all. Your liver is sluggish—you are dull and heavy—sleep does not
rest, nor it food appetizing. In this condition illness develops. Doctor Pierce's
li olden Medleal Discovery eradicates the poisons from the body—a glyceric alter*

queen's root, without the use nf alcohol. No matter how strong tbe constitution

for the car shops to turn out rolling

the west wll) bc over five hundred million bushels. And when tbat time

whicli is Impossible, the twenty-live

market established and the cars detained nt Winnipeg as they would be
for from twenty-four to forty-eight
hours on every trip, and how much
■wheat would bo left in bis granary
that would otherwise bo shipped, sold
nnd paid for. Remember that it
•wMild moan, under ordinary conditions, that one bushel out of every
four is leff on his bauds at the close

And why. In the name nf ordinary
common sense should the fanner ho
put to this loss and inconvenience?
Thero ls no renson whatever for he
stands to lose at overy turn. Tho
only parsons who could possibly be
benefited are tho men who would
handle tho wheat on the sample market, and would mix lt. nnd fix It so as
■to bring the most profit to themselves.
It i? to the interests of overy farmer to carefully study this sample
mnrket question in all its bearings.
At present, the farmer is safeguarded
on every hand by statutory laws
•which are fairly well observed, anil
the farmer now has full control of
his own wheat on the market. If
he don't, like to sell to the local dealer
for any reason, either on account of
grade or price, he can ship himself.
The railway companies are compelled
ty law to furnish him a car in his
turn tnd place it at a loading platform for him. At Winnipeg an honest grale ls assured htm by a government inspector and the wheat is sold
.at a fair market price. In short, he
Is mas'er of the situation.
Under thf) system of a sample market the opposite is the case. The
farmer Is master of nothing. His
wheat goes to Winnipeg, a sample is
placet" on the table lu the grain exchange and It Is sold for whatever the
buyer chooses to give him. All.the
guaran eos of fair play wliich he now
enjoys ..ro sacrificed, and his grain is
placed at the disposal of a crowd of
spectators, wbo agree amongst themselves not to bid ono against another,
bnt to .play into each others hands
for their mutual, benefit.
An attempt is being made to rain-
1 ad the fanners on this matter, and
false ideas and spurious arguments
are bring used to trap the unwary. It
Is the old game of the spider and the
fly. They mako the statement that
wheat whloh Is between grades will
bring a hotter priee on a sample
market for purposes of mixing with
lower qualities. This is a f-llaciqus
argument. The farmer knows by
past experience that the only poople
to profit by the mixing of grain are
lho dealers. In this regard a recent
Interview with Mr. J, 11. Haslam who
is'well known throughout the west Is
worthy of careful consideration. Mr.
FT Asl am wiu has just returned from
Kurope states thnt the western Can-
ndian whea4 is losing its pro eminence

the farmers of the wost that. ,thoy
must eo to It Uiat they send their
best wheat pure tn the Old Country if
Ihey wish to retain their hold on the
markel and secure the best prices.
In tho liidit of tills, what becomes nf
the mixing argument? Twn qualities of wheat cannot be mixed without lowering nne of them, and In doing so you reduce ihe  stnndard of all.

Miljoct. he was af.o to verify for Himself many fuct3 whicli had until tliu.i
escnped notice.
For Instance, he pointed out that
birds on migration often flew very
high—probably as much as 12.001)
feet (over two miles) above the
ground. That tliey do fly at a great
height han been corroborated by astronomers, who have seen birds flying
across the face of the moon, at a
height of not less than one mile.
Ga'tke's ideas on speed were.probably exaggerated, but only by a theory
of a tremendously swift flight at n
high altitude could be account for
the fact that certain birds were never
or rarely seen In the countries between tbelr Winter and Summer
quarters. For Instance, he pointed
out that the .blue throat, which winters in Afrl'ca and breeds in Scandinavia, is but rarely met with ln any
of the countries on the lino of route-
Italy, Greece and Southern Germany.

the rate of 180 miles an hour would
be able to reach Heligoland In the one
Between 1880 and 1887 the British
Association granted some money to a
Bpecinl committee for the study of
migration, and by means of schedules
much information wus collected about
the birds that are killed annually at
coast lights. Although many facts
were thus obtained tbe observations in
this respect are almost entirely dependent, on weather conditions. In
fact lt may be said that tho only
migration that can bo actually seen ls
lhat which bas partially failed, for lt
is only when delayed or held back by
stormi. or fog that birds obviously
on passage are oncountorcd along the
coast or in oilier places where they
are not usually found.
In Denmark and Germany ornithologists have been experimenting by
ringing birds mul having those that,

given on the aluminum band pluced
on the bird's leg. In this way the
habits of migration, speed, and direction of llight. and oilier fuels arc discovered. Storks have given the most

Blind Men Now See
Sometimes blindness is entirely due
to nerves. A young farmer, hailing
from Ohio, had been siouo-bllnd for
live years. The farmer had heen under 11-, nl ment by many eminent spe-
ciiillsis, and had also entered a Ilrst-
clasB eye-hospital, but no cure could
be effected. Tho doctors woro of
opinion lie wns suffering from paraly-
Bis of thu optic nerve, a disease considered hopeless. . Uui'lng last month
tho blind man began to suiter very
much with his teeth, and at last he
visited a dontlsL, who advised him to
have three teeth extracted. Worn
.out with a long spell of loothacho the
farmer agreed; but. no sooner did the
deutlsi start to draw tho second
tooth than he Jumped up and ex*
claimed:—I can see! I can aee the
light, the crack In the window! And
turning to the dentist with glee, he added, joyfully:—1 can see you. The
whole affair seems to have been a
miracle, as up ^to now no scientist
has been able to connect the blindness with teeth. To a eonininn-8eli,;e
person the blindness appears to have
been a case of 'nerves.' Possibly
the man feared his sight wns failing

Shearing Sheep With a Machine
Shearing sheep with a machine is
practical for most farmers. Bays tho
Siut.he .i Agriculturist. As with any
other machine, a man should have
some knack willi machinery to do the
best. work. The greatest advantage
iu using tlii3 method of shearing is
t .at yob get practically all the wool.
During tiie World's Fair at St. Louis
they had a contest between the old-
fashloi cd method of shearing by hand
a-id t! o newer one of clipping the
sheep with, the machine. After the
expert hand shearer had finished a
sheep thc machine would clip about
thirteen ounces of wool. So thc saving of wool wouFfl Boon pay for the
shearing machine.
A man with from 25 to 100 head ot
sheep should use the hand machine,
but. witli larger flocks the power machine Is moru practical. lf one's
neighbor raise sheep, they can
Install a power plant with a line shaft
to run as many machines as thoy
wish with a small gas engine. When
shearing time comes they can set a
duy, collect their flocks and help
each other. I have such a plant In
my barn with three machines run
from a line shaft with a loose pulley,
bo each machine can be operated or
stopped Independently, as the shearer wishes, by shifting the belt from
the tight to the loose pully.*We shear
with this plant, running three mas-
chines, about 200 sheep In a day
with the average farm bands. A
quick, strong young man with practice
should shear 100 or more, while the
export will turn off 200 with one machine. But the average farm hand,
to do a nice job, will average about
75 a i ay.
One of the greatest advantages ln
having a shearing plant with several
machines is that you shear your
whole flock ln n day,, thus getting
them hack to grass with their lambs.
If you are two or three days shearing
there is considerable loss to the Iamb
crop from keeping them up. Machine
sheared sheep also look much better.

laid hare their complaints before him, and to say the least these
were of a extraordinary nature, In a very polite and agreeable manner the representative of the Telephone Company assured the members of the Board of Trade who addressed him

Mr Winston Churchill, first lord of the admiralty, has
accepted an invitation to visit Canada, and it is understood
that he will cross the Atlantic on a battleship. If this proves
to he the case, the inference would seem to be that His Majesty's government is not as apprehensive of war as some other
people are. We think it may be fairly assumed that His Majesty's ministers are not wholly out of touch with the situation.
Mr. Churchill's visit will be a very useful one, aud whether
lie will be able to spare time from his official duties to take a
run across the continent, we do not know; but we sincerely
hope that he will come out to the Pacific coast and receive an
ocular demonstration of the requirements of the local situation
from a naval point of view. We are not suggesting that the
United Kingdom should be called upon to bear any part of the
burden of the defence of this coast, but it might prove of great
value to the Dominion government, in formulating its plans of
naval defence, to have the benefit of his opinion formed from
observation on the ground.—Colonist.

The Undervalued Banana
The dietum that fruit should be eaten iu their Beason, finds Us innituLioas
as regards variety in the teaiperate
zones at eertain periods of the year,
'lliere is, however, one fruit which is
readily avallablo fresh in American
markets at practically all seasons, although it grows best from November
to April iu its tropical or semi-tropical home. It is unfortunate that an
article of diet which meets certain nutritive requirements so well aud is so
easily obtained at reasonable cost as
the banana should be the subject of
much misunderstanding among both
physicians and laymen. Kor despite
the tact that over 40,000,000 bunches
are reported to have been brought to
tho United Slates last year, it is popularly stated ia mapy quarters that
the banana is difficult of digestion and
may give rise tn alimentary distress.
A cioser consideration ot tbe composition of Ihe banaim may serve to
elucidate the situation. The Iruit is
broughl to our Northern markets
;r. i -l. and is ripened by artificial heat.
This process eau lie hastened or delayed withiu certain limits, according
to the momentary demands of tho retail trado. The color of the peel
gives evidence of the degree of ripeness. The green banana contains in
the part exclusive of tho skin aliout
1-5 per cent, of protein and _d to 25
per cent, of carbohydrate, almost on-
tlrely starch, in the ripe banana,
With yellow-brown peel, the edible
part contains' somewhat less (Hi to
r.i per cent) of carbohydrate; but
that which remains is now almost entirely ia the form of soluble sugar;
Ihe green, one-fifth starch. Most of
the remainder of the edihlo pulp Is
water. Intermediate degrees of ripeness present starch and sugar in reciprocal proportions, varying between
the limits set. above.
Inasmuch as bananas are commonly
eaten uncooked," it is obvious that
more or less raw starch will he ingested if the fruit is not ripe. I.e., If
the skin bas not begun to shrivel and
darken. Raw starch may be singularly Irritating lo the alimentary tract
of mar. and is at best poorly utilized
whether ft he ingested in tho form of
uncooked potatoes, chest-nuts, bananas or other native starchy foods. No
one would advise the use of uncooked
potatoes; yet many people eschew a
thoroughly ripe banana in Ihe belief
that tho wholesome fruit is "rotten"
when tbe skin becomes darkened,
whereas they eagerly eat the yellow-
green F'arch-hearlng fruit at a stage
of Incomplete ripeness.
Whooping Cough
Whooping cough, which some
mothers think can be cured by tak-
children near gasworks or

more quaint superstitions than almost, any other disease. In Northamptonshire it is believed that if a
small quantity of hair is cut from the
nape of the sick child, rolled in a
piece ef meat, and given >o a dog, the-
whooping cough will he transferred to
Ihe animal. In Cornwall the child is
ted with bread and butter which has
heen passed three times under the
belly of a piebald horse. In Lancashire they still tell you that whooping cough wlll never attack a child
that has ridden on a bear!
According to a new Swedish system of making use of peat, the material is powdered finely and blown
into the furnace by a fan blast, and
the dust is consumed while in suspension- The advantages of this
method is that the degree of heat may
bo easily and quickly adjusted by
regulating the amount of peat powder
leltverod into the interior of the furnace. This system is said to represent a greater efficiency than heretofore experienced in the utilization
of peat for fuel, three parts of peat
representing ihe same amount of energy as two of coal. In this shape it
is also economical, as there is no
fuel hurned except where the power
Is needed.
As Old as the World
Cherries, which are beginning to
appear in the market, were lirst cultivated tn Kngland about a century
before Christ, but the best modern
species of fruit were introduced into
Kent from Flanders about the beginning of the 16th century. One of
the very firs' cherry orchards was
that at Teynham, near Paversham,
from which much of Kent was afterwards supplied, and the "Garden of
Kngland" still maintains Its supremacy, the chief orchards being along
the Kentish borders of tho Thames,
tbe Darent and the MedWtty, Uusino.
Venetian Ambassador at the Court oi
James 1.. relates thnt It was a favorite amusement In lhe Kentish garden to try who could eat the most
cherries, ard gives details of one
match wherein a young woman won
with 2d pound-; at a sitting.

Christianity   and Cricket
Cricket is peculiarly a Christian
game. No pagan nation has played
lt. So a Molbourne paper Ib rebuking a couple of church clubs for eom-
Ing lo blows ut the coneh.i3ion of a
match. The Baptists started the
trouble by offensive "barraklng,"
which tbe Presbyterians indignantly
resented. Words led to blows, much
to the surprise of the spectators, who
came to see cricket, not fighting. This
Ib very sad. We thought rootball
had a monopoly of that sort of thing.

Watery Blood
Anaemia is tho medical term for
poor or watery blood. It may arise
from a variety of causes, such as
lack of exercise, hard study, improperly ventilated rooms or workshops,
imperfect assimilation ot food, etc.
The chief symptoms are extreme pallor of the free, lips and gums; rapid
breathing and palpitation of the heart
after slight exertion; headaches, dizziness, sometimes fainting spells and a
tendency to hysterics, swelling of the
feet and .limbs, a feeling of constant
tiredness and a distaste for food. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pilks are a certain
cure for anaemia, because they' make
new, rich blood, which stimulates and
strengthens every organ and every
part of the body. The following is
one among thousands ot cases of this
serious trouble cured by the use of
Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Miss Georg-
ina Hayfond, St. Jerome, Que., says:
"About a year ago my health began
to give out. 1 suffered from headaches, heart palpitation, dizziness and
appeared to be threatened with a
general breakdown. I was at this
time employed In the family of a doctor, who seeing my condition, gave me
medicine. I took this faithfully for
some time, but with no benefit, and I
grew much discouraged. Then a
friend advised mo to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, saying that she had found
a cure through them In similar conditions. I took her advice, got a supply of the pills and took them regularly for some time. Gradually I
became strong and in lhe course of
a month or so I was again enjoying
the hest of health, and have not sinee
had the least return of the old symptoms. I can heartily recommeu. Dr.

-Advice to Buyers
of Cows.
Demonitralor and Lecturer In Dairying
al the Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph, Canada
ICopyrlfht. Mil, by A. C. McCliirg ft Col
WHEN buying a cow It Is not
nlwnys possible to lind out
the ni'tunl. yield'and quality
of her milk.   In sueh u euse
Kve must look for outward Indications
thnt ure likely to bespeak good milking
' Some people Iny little stress on fnrm
end place all the emphasis on the per
form. While we ugree with them, yet
at the same lime we believe the form
et the typical dairy cow to be a result
ot the performance at tbe milk pull
through mnny past generations. One
hns followed the other ns surely as
tbe fruit follows the blossom.
Development of the Cow.
By selection, breeding und monnge-
silent the cow with naturally a small
paunch, diminutive udder aud ability
. -ami  wii hout lioht Attn Ain is a
to give milk for only a Bhort time to
nourish ber youug bus beeu developed
Into an animal with big girth, enormous udder und ability lo give a good
Dow of milk almost continuously. Such
Is the aehleveuieni of mun In the uui-
mul kingdom. Whut then must we
look for lu a prolltable dairy cow-
points common lo ull breeds?
Uegtnnlug ut the nose, we like tbe
nostrils to be large to admit plenty of
air to the lungs, so ss to keep Ibe
blood pure aud tbe cow healthy. The
mouth should be large and the lips
firm, but elastic. A large mouth Is said
to Indicate a large appetite. Whether
this Is limited to eowklnd and does
not exteud to mankind 1 know not.
but 1 do know we seek cows with good,
keen appetites, for If they do tbelr
duty tbe more food tbe more milk.
From tbe muzzle up to tbe eyes
should be clean cut and nnt too heavy,
The eyes should be large and bright.
They Indicate tbe nervous constitution
of the nuimnl, and a cow to be a good
milker should have strong nerves.
"She Knew Her Business."
Thc forehead—the space between the
eyos—should be wide and disbud, The
dished effect results frum the full eye,
■ nd we wnnt tbo breadth, for there Is
where the brains nre situuted. Cows
show Intelligence in their fitces much
the same us human beings do. I bavo
fancied us 1 looked nt a line eow Hint
she knew what her business wus und
did not neglect It. Murk yon. when a
cow Is keeping her Juws going she Is
working-yes. just ns mueh and just
ss effectively us a set of stones In a
prist mill or a weaver nt u loom. She,
toe. is tutting rnw material uud manufacturing it into it iiuisiii-d product,
But. to return lo her head. The bonis
should be symmetrical and not too
large. J'he ears uut very large, and
when they aro turned bnek there
should be seeu a yellow oily secretion
on the inside. This should ulso be
found ou tbe udder and on the tip of
the tail. 1 buve heurd tbat It Indicates
richness of milk, but more likely It denotes constitutional vigor and thrift.
For the same reason we like tbe balr
to be soft and oily or silky, and when
we pull tbe skin up from the ribs It
■bould be clastic and spring back aud
nut be thick aud leathery.
The neck should be slender and neat- I
ly joined to tbesboulders.  There should
be no excessive smount of loose, flub
by skin on tbe under part of the throat
■nd neck.
The Dsukle Wedge.
We (snd 1 might here explain thnl
"we" means myself and all who agree
wltb met like to see tbe double wedge
In tne dairy form. From tbe need she ,
should gradually Increase ln width toward tbe hind quarters. Then from
the shoulders dowo we Uke to see ber
brosden out
Tbere should be good wldtb between
lhe forelegs, eel the space behind tbe
etoow should he well Ailed ent Just
lu this part are situated Ihe vital os
gnus—lhe heart and lungs. A cow nan
row hei ween tbe tori-legs Is exactly the
sume Us ii narrow chested person-botb
are upt to be subjects fui tuberculosis.
The backbone should he large, loosely pointed und a little prominent, another Indication ot nerve power, for In
the backbone runs the splnul cord, tbe
cblef nerve ut the body.
The burrel or body of tbe row should
bnve good length und depth. Tbls ts
her storehouse and should be capable
of linidliur large quantities of food.
The cow shuuld be wide nnd strong
across the loins lo support thin huge
piliincb, fur weakness In tbls pulnl often causes a sag In the back. Tbe
thighs should be thin nnd holluwed.oul
to give plenty ot space between the
legs, und the Hunks should be high, allowing ronni ror a large udder.
Horsemen sny, "No loot, no horse."
Dairymen say, "Nn udder, no cow"
The udder should extend well tip nl ttie
back and well forward, being strongly
nttiielied to Ihe hotly. The sole ot the
lylder In u eow. especially a young eow.
should bo level nnd tbo tents evenly
plnced nud conveniently long to tie"
milked. The udder should be covefed
with Hue soft hulr, should be'springy,
uud lhe veins should be prominent.
Milk Veins and Milk Willi.
The milk velus coming from the udder nnd running forward under the
body should be Inrge, tortuous and extending well toward the front before
entering the body through whnt are
culled Ihe milk wells, Sometimes tbese
openings In the abdominal wull are
small and press the veins, swelling
them und milking tlieiu appear larger
tlmn they renlly nre. In buying a cow
not milking ll Is well to reel the size
or the milk wells, und they will be
sume Indication ot tbe size und leugih
of the milk velus.
After the cow Is milked out the udder should bang like a bug ot skiu,
soft mid pliable. Occasionally we see
a cow tf'lth n beautiful udder. Afler
being milked she still bus her beautiful
udder, but has added little to tbe milk
pull. This Is known us a fleshy udder
and often deceives a buyer.
The escutcheon, or milk mirror, Is
considered by some dairymen ns un
important Indication of n cow's value
ns n milker. The escutcheon Is that
portion uf tbe hind quarters ut the buck
and top of the udder where tbe hair
points upward Instead of downward.
It Is taken us n good sign when the
opuee covered with such buir Is Inrge
and when tbene are severul "cores" ur
"whirlpools" where the balr gathers
towurd a center.
Some Judges like the terminal tall
hone to reach the bock. The lull Is bill
a cotilltiiintlon of tbe liuekbnue— the
furger uud more loosely Jointed the
vertebrae the longer the tall. It should
taper toward the point und eud lu u
nice, full switch.
First Look For Constitution.
Summing up the qualities uf u good
cow. we should sny tlrst look for constitution. It is anything but pleasant
to think of using milk wblcb bus come
from a sickly, diseased animal. Don't
you think with me there Is a stroag
relationship between the vitality of tbe
cow and the vitality of tbe milk she
gives? First, then, let us emphasize
tbe necessity of baring a iieulthy cow
us Indicated by a readiness for ber
food, u full, brlgbt eye. soft, pliable
balr and skin; steiidy, even breathing
uud good heart and lung capacity.
Then we wunt good milking qualities.

A cow should Increase In her milk

rlods. and frequently tbere Is a slight
Iuerense in the percentage of fat as
