Addresses by Members of the Hor
tieultur**.! Society-Valuable Information Imparted and Advice
Given-PredlorJoa Ventured that
Comox Will Yet be One of tbe
Leading Districts of British
Notwithstanding the different notices
of time and place for the meeting an excellent audience k reeled the members of
the Horticultural Society at the Agrital-
tural Hall, Courtenay, on the eveniat* of
Thursday last. Mr. A. Urouhart was
elected chairman and Mr. J. A. Halliday
Mr. J. R. Anderson, statistician of the
Department of Agriculture und member
At large of the society, tirst addressed the
meeting ai follows:
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen���
Ai you vtill have seen by the notices calling you together, thn is a meeting of the
people of the district and of such of the
members ef the Board of Horticulture as
csuld attend, and the Inspector of Fruit
Pests. These meetings are heing called
by the Board with thi object of imparling
information and instruction by lectures,
informal talks and papers, and when possible by practical illustration, on the culture and care of fruit trees and the chock
ing of all those causes which lead to such
great loss to the growers, of answering all
questions to the best of their ability on all
matters appertaining lo horticulture, and
of meeting the people and getting a more
intimate acquaintanceship with them; and
by explaining thc objects for which the
Board has been formed and the ends it
has in view, it is hoped to win ihe confidence uf tli* public and make it what is
the aspiration of every member of it, not
only a means of protecting the growing
fruit industry from the invasion of infection from abroad, but one to which our
people may always feel that they can
appeai for advice and assistance when
they need it; and I trust that every one
of you will always avail yourselves ofthe
services which I take this opportunity of
most cordially offering. Now whilst the
Board on its part is anxious and willing
to do all in its power to promote your interests in the manner indicated, much
lies with you in seconding its efforts, not
the least amongst �� hich is when meetings
are announced, to show by your attend.
ance that you .'appreciate the efforts made
in your behalf and are ready to avail your
selves of them. I am led to make these
remarks from the fact that il is very often
the case when an invitation is given lo
the farming population to meet fnr the
discussion ol subjects of must material
interest, the attendance is so small that
it is mosl disheartening tothe promoters,
In the matter also of statistical information which is for reports on thc state of
the agricultural and horticultural interests
of the country and on which to base legis
lative measures in the interest of the farmer or rancher, I regret to say a most
unsatisfactory state of indifference pre
vails. Now this should not be. There
i*. a well known saying that "God helps
those who help themselves;" ard I tell
you gentlemen that you cannot afford to
be indifferent. In these days the tilling
of the soil and the production of fruits
and crops are every day getting to be
c inducted on more scientific principles*;
and those who neglect the opportunities
of acquiring knowledge and induction
on matters of this description arc neglect
ing their most vital inteicsts. The day
lias gone by when education was not con
sidereel necessary for the farmer. Modern sconce proved by practical lessons,
shows us that in order to be a successful
tiller ol the soil one should be possessed
of knowledge ofthe principles of drainage,
of fertilizers, of the constituent parts of
the soil, of intelligent and rational ways
of planting and care of crops and fruit
trees, on a knowledge of tlie diseases and
insect foes which assail his efforts ou
every side, and of those insects which are
the friends of man and without which we
should be so overrun with noxious insects
that all our efforts would be rendered
Now Mr. Chairman and gentlemen 1
will not detain you much longer as you
will be addressed by Mr. Ohlson another
member ofthe Hoard, and by Mr. Palmer, the Inspector of fruit pests; and I
trust wlitrn these gentlemen have spoken
that anv of you who have questions to
ask will come forward and I hope there
will he many such, as by this means
many a point is touched upon which otherwise would remain unnoticed.
There are here some copies of the Report ol the Department ol Agriculture, of
the Fruit Growers association, ar.d of lhe
Acts, Rules and Regulations of the Board
of Horticulture, tor those desiring copies,
1 may mention tha'. some amendments to
Hie Rules and Regulations passed at a
meeting ofthe Hoard just held hav* not
yel been published, but copies will be
sent to j on in a fewda\s. Among them
is one creating quarantine stations where
fruit and fruit trees entering the province
must he msptaed before distribution
One of ihese station*, is Union and one of
our objects is to secure the services of
some competent person whose duty
it will be to see that no infection reaches
your orchards from the   sources   named.
1 am pleased to he once more in this
beautiful di-uiet of yours, a district which
1 have always remembered with pleasure
and one which in all my travels through
the province I have seen none to surpass;
and I trust ere long th;-i all our hopes
will be realized in seeing a railroad connecting it with lhe rest ofthe world, when
I venture to predict Comox will be one of
the leading districts of British Columbia.
I thank you Mr. Chairman ��nd gentlemen for your kind attention.
Mr. Ohlson gave an excellent address
on the preparing nf the land for fiuit
trees, dwelling very strongly on deep,
thorough draining. He explained the
manner of planting, trimming, grafting
and care of trees. He stated that the
difference in temperature of drained and
undrained land was 40 degrees, 12 inches
below the surface in June, and showed
many common errors in planting trees.
Many questions were asked and answered most satisfactorily. In every way his
address was most instructive, and much
good must result from it.
Mr. Palmer dealt with fiuil tree pests,
and how to destroy them. He urged
spraying and gave the necessary mixtures
for that purpnte. What he had seen nf
Comox led him to think that fungi wire
doing more harm here than insects. He
advised co-operation in obtaining better
spraying pumps, gave much good advice
about the farmers uniting as to the lines
of frutt they would cultivate, in marketing
and obtaining better results ttc.

A tew minutes before when Myra had
performed ihe aame action   she   had atood
gating before Iter at tlio figure  sealed at

abject misery and despair it conveyed to
her mind, swept away all compunction.
Kvery thought of her visit being iiiiumiden-

With one hound Stratton leapt from his

"Myra I" he cried, and the next moment
he had clasped her in his arms.
For the moment it was a different man

This force, the Metropolitan Police, waa
founded in 1820 by Sir Robert Peel, whose
memory is perpetuated in the vernacular of
the streets in the words - 'bo bby"and' ���peeler." The Metropolitan district of that day
was the ecene of bo much crime of all aorta,
on land and water, that reform in tho administration of justice and the governance
of the criminal classes became imperative,
There was no uniformity io the systems of
the several parishes. Kach magietrato had
jurisdiction only in hia own pariah orcounty
and thti result was a trading ot judicial
favors under whioh the whole systom of
justice became rotten and corrupt, to the
maleficent advantage of the criminally
inclined. First the bench was reformed,
and tbe Metropolitan police magistrates are
now all trained lawyers, paid by the State.
Then came Peel's bill establishing a new
police force.
Like all English police forces the Metro-
Eolitan Police ia a civil and non-military
ody, but it ia commanded by a military
head, wbo is always a man of rank and
Ho is the Commissioner, and is appointed by the Queen by warrant and acts under
the immediate authority of the Home
Secretary, He directs and controls the
whole system of police within the Metro*
polttan Police district. He ia a Justice of
tbe Peace for London and the adjacent
counties ; but hia (unctions aa a Justice of
the Peace are specially restricted to tlie
preservation of the peace, the prevention
of crimes, the detection and committal of
offenders, and the carrying into execution
of the purposes of the Metropolitan Police
acts. He confines himself in practice to
the administrative control of the police
force, and the provention and detection of
crime, by bavins persons arrested or
summoned to be dealt with hy the magistrates.
The Commissioner makes orders, with
the approbation of the Home Secretary,
for the regulation and good government of
the polioe force, Tliese are comprised in
the Commissioner's regulations, general
orders, and polhe orders, the latter usually appearing daily. The Commissioner
makes an annual report to the Home Sec
retary whioh ia laid before Parliament.
All members of the force are instructed
that the primary object of the police ia the
Srevention of -jrime, and the next is the
eteotion and punishment of offenders
when crime haa beea committed. Tht
protection of life and property, the proa*
ervation of public tranquility, and the
abaence of onme are regarded aa the proper evidence of the measure of success
The constables are recruited from all
trades and employments, with the exooption
of the members of the Thames Division,
who are recruited from sailors alone, and
patrol the river in boat a and steam launches.
It is among the couditions of their aervico
that constables should give their whole
time, aud not oarry on any trade; that
they ahould serve and reside wherever
appointed, and wear the police uniform
when on duty. When they lirst join tlio
force constables aro employed on atation
duty and in attending tho police conn during the hearing uf charges and aummouaea.
Tbey are instructed daily by a Superintendent in the regulations of the force and
examined from time to time. At the end
of the first fortnight the Superintendent
reports Lo the Commissioner, with regard
to each constable, whether he is likely lo
become an efficient member of the force.
During the first six months after joining
the men ate assembled and questioned by
the Inspectors as to their knowledge of the
polioe instruction book.
There are about 250 mounted police who
are dotailed for ordinary duty to ths outlying divisions, but ire brought in on
occasions of processions, public meetings,
and simitar gatherings. There are also a
few mounted polioe attached to the A or
Whitehall Division for service in connection
with the Commissioner's force, The reserves consist of about ten per cent of the
authorized strength of each division.

Every member of the force is entitled
aftor twenty-five yeara of approved service
to retire and receive au ordinary penaion
for lite. After fifteen years' service ho is
entitled to uu ordinary pension if he ia incapacitated, but the penaion may be reduced by an amount not exceeding one-half if
tho incapacity is brought about or contributed to by his own fault or vicious habits.
If incapacitated before completing fifteen
years' service, ho may receive a gratuity
not exceeding ouo month's pay for every
year of service. At any time if a member
of the force is incapacitated by injuries received in the discharge of his duty without
any fault of his own, he is entitled to a
Bpecial pension, the amount of whioh is
regulated by law.
Pensions and gratuities aro calculated on
the annual pay at the date of retirement
but if in the three years before retirement
a man has been in more than one rank, the
average pay for the three years Is taken.
The eoale of ordinary pensions begins at
tifteen-liftiotha of the annnal pay, whioh is
the penaion payable after fifteen years'
service ; and rises gradually to a maximum
of two-thirds, which is attained after
tweuty-Bix years' service, Pensions may
bo forfeited or reduce! for misconduct, and
may be temporarily suspended in certain
cases for other causes. PenatonB, allowances, and gratuities are payable to the widows

The Household Linen.
Every careful houso wi fa ukes much
pride in her linen. Pure white, sweet
���smelling towels, bed and tablo linen add
an air of freshness and daiutineas, and
make the room attractive. Kveryone likes
pretty, dainty things about the houae.
They give one a feeling of comfort and satisfaction, and the more there are about the
more charming the home. The linen of the
house has ita proper plaoe to fill among
the dainty things, and it in also an necessity. Plain as is the material of which these
things are made, much can be accomplished
in the way of making them pretty if the
housewife is willing to give the time and
pains required. There is one thing which
"hould be put upon every piece���the initial
of the surname embroidered in one corner.
That upou towels should either be in white
or the color of the ends of the material.
Crosa stitching it suitable for fine huckaback, forimiialsandmonograme. Upon fine
toweling and upon linen of all olher kinds,
���uch as table napkins, and oloth, only
white is admissible. The ornamentation
may be heavy and floriated.
Firstly, the tablecloth and napkins.
There ia nothing to do with theao except
to hem them unless they are fringed.
Of course, the doilies, tray-ulotha, and center-pieces allow an unlimited amount and
variety of fancy work. This will be regulated by the time whioh can be dovotedto
Tbe shoots should be made of regular
aheoting���uo seam down the center. They
may be hemstitched across each end.
The pillow cases  may be hemstitched,
, With drawn work above the hem; or   with
tucks above the hem, and a ruflle of cambric
or lace below.
Hi The pillow-shams may be as elaborate
or simple aa the taste of ihe maker dictates.
It will be more economical and better
wear will be obtained If ttwellng be par*
chased by the yard. The kitehen towels
may be hemmed by machine, but the finer
ones are better hemstitched.
The face cloth is a muoh neglected but
very necessary article. These may be
purchased ready-made in the Turkish goods
and also hand knit. To make them your*
self, a single new Turkish towel will mako
aeveral. Ur, a towel much worn iu the
centor may bo used. If a daughter is
learning to knit, nothing would be better
to practice on than a face cloth. Knit on
two needles, back and forth. A pretty
edge of colored yarn (cotton) may be crocheted on aftor it is done. They are some
timea orochcted, but are not so soft as the
knit onea. Muoh Inconvenience ia avoided
if a general supply of these Js kept on hand,
Cooking Sausages.
Tho ordinary way of fryiui* sausages is
not the best way of cooking them. A far
better one is to put them in the oven on au
ordinary baking tin, turning them from
one side to another until ihey are brown on
both aides. In a hot oven they will cook
in this way in ten or fifteen minutes. If
they arc in cases they should be pricked
thoroughly, to prevent them from bursting
under the heat. When sausage meat ia
used cut it into squares or form it into
round cn>kea,about three-quarters of an inch
thick, and lot it cook in tbe same way.
The French uso tho richest Spanish and
Madeira sauces with sausages. A little
chopped onion,in the proportion of a table-
epoonful to a pound of sausage meat, may
be browned and sprinkled over the sausages
just before they nro put iu tho oven. It
the sausages am then served with a rich,
brown aancn uml a sprinkling of minced
parsley for a garnish they will I o a very
delicate dish  for breakfast.
Another good way of serving saiisagoa is
with " fingera" of brown toast and mushroom anuco. Cook the sausage iu the oven
or on top of the stove, as you prefer. Only
be careful that they are not cooked until
they aro hard aud flavor less. They should
he well browned ou both Hid- a, and thoroughly done in ten minutes' cooking. Nothing ia more objectionable than underdone
pork. Arrang (-twelve sausages cooked in
this way on a platter. Separate them by
fingeri of toast. Heat a good brown
gravy���-a Spanish sauce js most desirable if
it ia convenient. Mix six mushrooms and
add them to the sauce and let thum simmer
In it for six inmates. Then pour the sauce
around the sausages and toast.
Still another nice way of serving sausage
is with apple sauce or on a bed of beans.
The red '-beau ia used for this purpose by
French cooks, but a white bca'i will serve.
The beaua should hu Boakod over night,
and the water in which they are soaked
���hould be poured oil' thum in the morning.
Thoy ahould then bo put in a pot. To a
pint of beaua,measured before soaking, add
a tablespoonful of butler and a amall onion,
with a clove stuck in it. Cover them with
oold water and let them cook slowly until
they are thoroughly lender, adding water
aa the water boils uway. When the beans
are soft enough to bo easily crushed in the
fingers rem>vo them froi.1 tho lire. Season
them with salt and popper, take out the
onion and servo them. They are a very
good accompaniment of roast | oik or broiled
chops, as well as of sauaages.
Useful  Recipes.
Indian Pudding.���Take one quart of
���calded milk with a little salt, three tab .
���pooufuls yellow corn meal, one tablespoon*
ful of ginger; let this mixture atand
twenty minutes ; add one oup of molasses,
two eggs, a piece of butter size of a walnut.
Bake alowly two hours and cerve with a
hard sauce.
Breakfast Porridge,���As a change from
oatmeal, rolled wheat hat been extensively
used. To three parts freahlyjbulling water,
or milk if preferred, stir in slowly one part
rolled wheat, first salting the wator to
taste. Boil thirty minutes or more, and
���erva hot with sugar and oream or ayrup.
If a double boiler is used, do not stir the
rolled wheat while cooking. Tlie hot porridge can be poured into a mold and served
oold as blancmange with sugar aud cream,
or fruit tauce.
Taffy.���Molasses taffy maybe made by
boiling one pound of sugar, one pound ol
glucose, one third quart New Orleans
molasses; stir all the time and cook to soft
orack * tot off the fire and stir in one-third
teatpoonful taleratus ; pour into a buttered
pan, and when nearly cold pull 011 tbe hook

and stir and cook until, when dropped In
water, it will form rather a hard ball if
gathered up between the fingers ; this is
called hard ball; then add one-quarter

A new interest hat been created in the
Armenian massacres by fresh stories sent
by a correspondent. Tho atrocities, it
is alleged, were done by both sides. For
instance, it is reported that as a means of
inciting the Turk to commit outrages that
will bring down upon them the wrath of the
vilized world, the Armenians have thrnst
gun cartridges into the living Turks, men
and women, and have exploded them, and
that in the case of the men a hole wat
made just below the bones of the chest for
the insertion of a quantity of powder,
which was then ignited aa sort of bomb.
The Turk who would not retaliate in kind
is yot to be born. The Saaioun massacre,
it is stated, was the consequence of the
Porte being notified that a revolt was going
on there, whereas the diaturbance was
caused by Armenians fighting oattle robbert,
When the Turkish troopa oame the robbers
helped them, and then ensued the horrible
carnage of bloodshed and murder, in which
some assert at high at tea thousand people
were killed. The report of the -.nail to
pleased the Sultan tbat he ordered the
rewarding of his troopa for thoir part io the
Again, it it stated the Sultan's promise
to reform will not be binding upon the
Armenian revolutionary agenta, no matter
what may oome, and until the revolution*
ary agitation it provided for in one way or
another by the Christian powers there will
be no end to the dittuibancet la Armenia.
This is the revolutionary party's opportunity, and It will make the mott of it. If
Christianity does not put an end to it onoe
for all, the murders, mattaorei and the
nameless atrocities will con tt nuo till it
does, it is, of course, impossible to tay
to what extent Radical ideas prevail among
the revolutionary propagandists, but tbe
plant of some of the leaders are shocking
in the extreme. In brief their plans are
to commit atrooities upon the Turks in
order that the infuriated Turks shall shook
the Christian world by the fiendish outrages of their retaliation. When remonstrated witb in regard to these un-Uhris*
tian plana the men who are responsible for
them merely say : " It may teem to yon
cruel and barbarous, but we know what
we are doing and why we are doing it."
After revealing a terrible loose state of
morale, on the part of the Kurds aud Turks
against the Armenians, the correspondent
concludes: Aa the situation now standi
one it forced to believe that both Turk and
Armenian are in the wrong. So far at the
Turk declares that he is trying to suppress
a revolutionary move he is unquestionably
in the right. There it no doubtabout that.
There is a revolutionary movement in
Armenia of a moat alarming quality, and
the Turk will be fortunate, indeed, if he
succeeds in surpassing iu The methods
of some of the leaders of this move ara no
leas shocking thau the barbarities of tbe Turk
in suppressing it, so that if we condemn
the Turk for his ferocity in the Saasoun villages, wo must not forget tht the is already
half mad with fear of an Armenian uprising and the probable diamembership of tbe

After haviug spent fifty-four houra in a
living tomb, Charles Ditzel waa rescued
from the jaws of death iu Richardson col-
liery, near Glen Carbon, a suburb of Potts
viile, Penn. His helper, August Brenuert
was taken out of the mine dead several
hours later. Roth men were found side by
sido, the one covered by a dense mass of
���oa], and the ot^er sitting in a space that
left uo room for him to movo anything but
hia head. Ditzel was so weak he had to
be handled like a helpless babe. Hit body
is painfully bruised,but the doctors attending him say he will live. He begged his
rescuers to give him a drink as soon as they
reaohed his side. DiUel was too weak to
expreaa his joy, but hia wasted features,
telling a tale of suffering, answered the
tender solicitude of his wife aod relatives
with a feeble smile. Ditzel was found at
the face of the east manway, about ninety
yards from ihe gangway, in breaat No, 30.
The breast was filled witb ooal, and how ha

to view. Then a third leg was uncovered.
The men could root tell which waa Diunl's
leg or which was Brenner's, Itwasatangle

Ditzel was liberated. The heavy ooal that
pinned him to the side of ihe manway was
removed, and his deliverers had the happy
satisfaction ot taking him ont of the narrow
aperture alive, Ditzel had only been able
to uso the lower part of one leg during hit
confinement of fifty-four hours, and wat
thus enabled to feel the stiffened limbs of
poor Brenner. Brenner died of suffocation,
and his body down to his knees was covered with coal and dirt. The rush of coal
liberated a great body of water, and Ditzel
was eoaked clean through when taken out
of the mine. His body was terribly shriveled and bloached from the effects of the
mine water, and his body was numb from
the cold. The drippings that came from
the crevices overhead fell over him, and a
drop occasionally struck his tongue, whioh
eagerly licked up the life-saviag moisture
Ditzel a clothes were removed when he
reached the surface and be wu wrapped in

The key to the Eastern position is not
now Armenia, hut Macedonia. It is understood that in Macedonia mines have been
laid for an insurrection which is intended
shall involve Bulgaria, Servia, and Greece
in active dispute for a division of the ter-
ritoiy uf Turkey in Europe, finally leading
the great powora to Intervene,
Aocording to an article iu the London
Speaker, which is supposed to disseminate
the ideas of the liberal Ministry, the
Macedonian question will probably soon
become a burning one and its solution will
finally diapoae uf the rule of Islam iu
Europe, According to the programme the
signal for an explosion ia to be given iu
Macedonia by au uprising of the Christians
there. The inhabitants of this faith are
in a majority in that country, and besides
they have friends close at hand who are
ready to take their side iu any contingency. It is assumed by the writer iu the
Speaker that the power- will not use force
to prevent Bulgaria, Greece, and Servia
from taking part in a revolution in Macedonia, and these propositions put into the
form of threats may be partly aimed at
the Sultan in order to coerce him into
usent to an Anglo-Russian policy in
Lessons orthe Brooklyn Strlk
Another serious labour disturbance has
now reaohed ita expected conclusion in
Unole Sam's dominions, and ihe strikers
by adopting theti.icidat method of resort*
ing to violence, have brought nothing but
trouble upon themselves and those who
aided them. The hiatory of the Brooklyn
strike is similar to that of many other
great strikea in the United States aod elsewhere. The men suddenly threw up their
plaoea, leaving the companies without any
means of running the cars, as they had
been given no opportunity of hiring new
men. When the companfea began to re*
cruit a new force, tha old employes and
their sympathizers resorted to violence of
every sort. As the days passed, and it
became olear that a full force oould speed*
ily be secured if the men who were glad of
a chance to take the places were allowed
to work, the strikers grew more desperate
and the disorder became so serious that the
militia had to be called out to restore
order. Meanwhile public sentiment, which
had at first been decidedly favorable to
the strikers, slowly but aurely shifted until it wu overwhelmingly against tbe anarchy that the strike had come to represent.
In the end, u waa inveitablc from the
start, the forces of order have triumphed.
Tbe conclusion once more is that strikes of
that aort never pay.

A Clerical Bank Robber.
A despatch from Portland, Ore,, says:���
Thursday afternoon a man entered the First
National Bank of East Portland, and pre*
���enting a revolver, called on Cashier E. T.
Holgate, who was alone in the bank, to
(brow up his hands. Tha fleshier complied,
and the intruder then bound and gagged
him, after which ha started to empty the
soin trays into a sack whioh he carried.
At thit juncture the catbier of the Citizsns'
Bank, across the street, who aaw the affair,
rushed in with a shotgun and arrested the
robber, who was then turned over to the
polioe. Tho thief wu indentified aa the
Rev. J. F. Reid, a Hantitt minister. Reid
came into notoriety a few months ago by
disappearing, after leaving hia clothes on
the river bank to give the impression that
he had been drowned. He afterwards tamed up in Illinois, where he claimed to be
suffering from mental troubles. When
Reid entered the bank he wore a long false
beard, but in tbe souffle it waa torn off,

The Siberian Railway.
At a recent siting "of the committee for
the construction of tha Siberian Railway,
the Emperor Nicholaa declared that the
commencement of tha work waa one of the
greatest acts of hla father's glorious ralgo.
He hoped to complete cheaply, and above
all rapidly and satisfactorily, the construction ot the railway. It wu deoided to
increase the oredit of 336,000 roubles by
15,000 for tbe purpose of settling in the
Amoor district Cotaok ooloniata selected
from among the troopa of European Ruaala,
A further enm of 86 roubles was alao assign*
ed for the transfer of ono hundred and fifty
Cossack families from the Trans-Baikal
district to that of the Ussureseotion of the
railway. The minlater of war observed
that the Uaiuri section wu insufficiently
protected from Chinese marauders. The
total length of all the sections of the railway conttruoted up to the present it over
1,000 miles, or a tittle less than a quarter
of the whole line u projected.

Slaughter of Young Swans.
An English journal warns the London ladies that their powder puffs, those airy
necessities of the toilet, are heavy with tha
blood of slaughtered innocents.
It is stated that u many u 30,000 young
swans,���cygnets, as they are called���are
billed every year to supply this dainty
fluff, to aay nothing of innumerable young
birds, of the eider duok and wild goose
variety, Tho bulk of these are imported -
the awan and geese from the ialanda of the
Baltic and from Norway aad Sweden, and
the elders from the northern and more icebound uas.
One cygnet will make nearly a dozen
average-sized " puff," which ahow how
many women must be, to a greater or lest
extent, addioted to the use of powder.
The pufftrade is highly profitable, as may
be judged from the fact that the down of a

"When practicable, milking should be
done by the same person, and with regularity u to time. He only that hath cleau
hands should be allowed to milk a cow,
says Geo. Abbott. "I say he, because I
think the men of the farm Bhould do the
milking, at least during the winter montha.
1 li.. ve exercised the right of changing my
miud on thia subject sinco I left the farm.
Jt is no more difficult lo milk with dry
hands than with them wet. It is cortaiuly
more cleanly, and leaves the mil** in a
much moro desirable condition for table
use or manufacture. Pure stable atmosphere is indispensable to prevent contamin*
ation from that source. Immediate straining will remove impurities wbioh otherwise might be dissolved to the permanent.
injury of the whole product.
'After the straining is attended to, the
milk should be aerated. Too often it in
poured into one large can and left there
just as the cows havo given it. Thai
neglect implies three things that are very
injurious tu its quality for cheese malting,
ll). The peculiar odor which the oow im*
parts to the milk will bo left in it until it
becomes fixed in the flavor. (2). Tho germs
of fermentation that come in the milk and
from the air have the best condition for
growth and aotion when the milk is left
undisturbed, (It). Then the milk will become almost unfit for thorou-*h coagula-
tion by rennet. Hence itisneedful aud advantageous to aerate it for three reasons.
Firat, because by pouring, atirring.dipping
or by trickl'uff it over nu exposed surface
there is eliminated from the milk by
evaporation any objectionable volatile clement that may be in it. Secondly,hecauae,
u has already been stated, the milk contains germs of fermentation. Ono of theae
are called vibrionu, A strange peculiarity
about these microbes is that they become
active only iti the absence of free oxygen.
Win n Warm new milk ia left undisturbed
carbonic gas is generatod.and that furnishes
the best condition for the commencement
of action by these almost invisible creatures. After they get started they can
keep up their work of decomposition even
in the presence of oxygen, it ia impossible
to so coagulate such milk u to yield a fine
quality of keeping cheese. Coagulation by
rennet of milk that ia ripe can never be
perfect unless it has been thoroughly
aerated immediately after it is taken from
the cow. Neglect of aeration will increase
the quantity of milk required to mako a
pound of cheese. Thirdly, because tho airing seema to give vigor to the germs of
fermentation that bring about an acid condition of the milk without producing the
acid. So muoh ia this so that it has been
found impracticable to make strictly lirat-
clous cheddar cheese from milk that has not
been aerated."
Give Them Good Care.
With a dairy herd that has not been well
sheltered and fed during the winter, the
spring is a very trying season. The cows
are thin in flesh and weak correspondingly.
Often they are forced to live on straw und
other fodder whioh should be thrown to
them between meals, to be picked over at
leisure only through the cold days of midwinter, and ai soon as the snow begins to
disappear and the ground becomes frozen
they are permitted to roam over the lots ot
will, picking the dry, dead grass from the
corners ot the fenoes and enjoying thorn-
selves as beat they can, with occasional
days of sunshine in the raw blasts lhat
sweep across the fields, chilling them tothe
vory marrow. This allowing cuttle to roam
about at large in the fields, during the
early spring, is a mistaken and very bad
practice, too commonly indulged in by
many. It is much bettor to keep them
sheltered, turning them cut to broathe tho
fresh air only in warm, sunny days. If
they are thin in flesh, they are in no condi
tion to resist tho chilly winds, and tho
stubble grass and dead tufts in tho corners
of the lencea, which they pick up, doe
them more harm than good,only diatendin
their craving stomachs without affording
them any nourishment. It is a burden to
get rid of, and makes them feverish an
costive. Thoy ought to bo generously fed
and prepared for their coming work, if
they are cows. Tho burden of calf-bearing
and the milk-producing that ia to follow,
call for plenty of good hay and a liberal
supply of grain, to give them strength and
furnish a supply of nourishment tor tho
calf as woll u aa abundance of material out
of whioh to elaborate milk.
Nor should this full feeding of hay and
rain be discontinued as soon aa tho grass
logins to start. Gorging with that relaxes
the system, loosens the bowels, and makva
the cow feel weak, lazy and faint. This
sudden ohange from dry to green feed gives
too great a shook to the system to maintain
perfeot health. Every one knows how
green grass operates upon horses. It makes
them weak and flabby, loose and lacy, and
so they are supplied with hay and grain until the working eeuon is over and they are
turned out for a run on the grass. A cow
Is no less severely worked in giving birth
to her calf and elaborating a generous flow
of milk. Besides her labor,she hu no aeuon
of rest, when she oan roam at leisure, doing
nothing. She must oontinuo her work
through the summer and fall season, whatever may be the weather or condition of tlie
feed, and then enter upon another six
months' siege of dry feed and cold, winter.
Her life experience it not one of the great-
est possible enjoyment. At all times it
ahould be the aim to give her strength and
build up her system, bo that it can perform
and endure the burdens that ahe ia expected to bear. The better she Is cared snd
provided for the better she will do, anil
the better sho does tho more sho is entitl -
ed to kind ind generous treatment.

How One Creamery Hakes Its Butter.
The Clover Hill creamery of Derby, Vt.,
makea ita butter from a herd of high grade
JerBeya. The cows have a run of a largo
puture hill that ia well supplied
with shade and pure water, iu the summer season, and in the winter thoy are
housed in a high, well ventilated, clean
table. They are watered twice a day in
winter, from a large tank of running water
in tho yard���tho water being wanned.
Their feed consists of well cured timothy

Feeding Rations
A rather conservative dairyman iu discussing the ration problem saya, "the
moat skillful chemist iu the world cannot
in hia laboratory, lay down rules or compound rations that shall give the very best
returns poaaihle from each rue of 2o good
dairy cows." This is very true, but it is
equally true that the agricultural chemist
can lay down certain general rules wliioh
will enable any intelligent dairyman, tu
vastly improve en the unscieutib* methods
which so generally prevail.

Some Simple Remedies.

aeriuus enough to demand a physicians
attention: ���
The terrible pange of felon are cut short

Have the water u hot as can be borne,plaoe
the linger in and keep renewing the hot
water for several hours.
A large proportion of all cramps and paint
can be relieved by waler of proper temperature and intelligently applied.
In cose of burns from acida or alkaliu.us*
cold water fieely, aa every application will
tend to dilute them and render them leu
liable to injure tbe akin.
In case of a wound where there is considerable bleeding use cold water applications freely. For bruiaes, the immediate
application of old water, nr some evaporating lotion���auch aa camphor or weak
tincture of aru ice���is the beat treatment for
alleviating sulfering aud hutening tha
abioipiion of blood.
U lieu a sprain occurs, loae no time in
attending to it, however trivial it may
appear. Ascertain whether there has been
a fracture or dislocation. If so, send tor a
physician u soon aa poaaible and keep
perfectly quiet until he arrives. If there it
no fracture or displacement of bouea, but
only exceaaive awolling about the joint,
bathe the injured member in aa hot water u
poaaible. Bathe for fifteen to thirty min*
utea, renewing the water occasionally and
applying with a sponge. Then wrap the
injured member in ttript of lltunel saturated wiih hot water and cover wilh dry clothe.
Do not uae tha aprained member until recovered. Complete rest ia the only cure for
a sprain.
Lor bleeding from tho noae,holdaaponge
saturated wiih cold water to nostrils and
nape of the neck. In cue this does nol
succeed the bleeding can be stopped by
vigorous action of the Jaws, If a child, a
wad of paper may be placed In the mouth,
and tin child instructed to chew hard. It
is the motion of tho jaws that stops the
flow of blood.
To ease rheumatic pains, boil a few po-
latuee and use the hot water in which they
were boiled. Dip some cloths in, wring
out, and apply as hot aa possible. A amall
vegetable press, auoh m are retailed for
twenty-five cents, is excellent to wring out
hot cloths, It aavea time and scalded
In case of a cut or jagged wound, amoke
the wound with burned flannel on which
has been placed a email quantity of tugar.
Sprinkle a little sulphur over the wound
and tie up with bandages and it will heal
immediately. A very dangerous wound,
made by a sewing machine needle, where
the needle fragments were found to have
been bent almoat double against the bone,
was oured in this manner. Ttie danger of

removed by holding the injured finger antl

The I Ion. Theodore Davie having

M a safe, prudent ui.ii, trained in business principles and as familiar with tho
needs of the province as his predecessor, Mc is also a nun who creates
lew aninrtsitiei and has the respect of
his political opponents. Thc Times
patriotically and generously says, "We
believe that Mt. Turner 15 actuated by
one feeling, the welfare of the province,
and that he will strive lo the best of
his ability to govern wisely   and   well.''
The new act relating to the provincial police gives the nt*ec-**;ary power to
lhe Superintendent of Police, and hereafter he will manage the affairs of his
department pretty much as he pleases,
and of courie will be held responsible
lor its efficiency* He will naturally be
.imbilious to make a gootl record, and
Ite has been given additional power and
authority in the firm belief that the ier
������ice will be vastly improved thereby.
His past record warrants this belief.

Tis joy to tie the flowers of the spring
With fragrance filling all thc balmy air,

That wave their soft resplendent banners there;

With all Aurora's ruby tinted skies
That tinge the dew-drops on the tender

And didst thou think it  spring,  though
sore leaves fell,
And naked branches moaned above thy
Or didst thou ope1 tiiy buds, and tbink it
To blush amoTig companions cold and
And shed atone the sympathizing tear
O'er vanished glories of the dj ing year?
How like to man who makes life's autumn
Unfolding glories ofa gladsome youth,
And shows the smiJc that long kept virtues bring
From inmost treasures of his worth and
