Says an exchange: The mode of

been, nud is still, a profound secret.
AU -nduoetnents hitherto held out

All that wo do know about India

To tho estimable parrots who hold
that passionate lovo is extinct in this
conntry, we commend the daily papers and washing out their eyes occasionally. On a cursory glance, one
jilted lover this month took strychnine, ouo Paris green, ono hanged
himself, two killed their successful
rivals and ono killed the nowly-
wvdded breaker of his heart and injured hor husband, and thon shot
himself, All this is not nico, but
women can addle men's brains just
us effectively as in tho age of chivalry.

A German savant has attempted
to explain the comparative immunity of.tlie beech trco from lightning
by the hairiness of its leaves. He
supports hia suggestion by tho results
of experiment*-- with oak leaves and
beech leaves respectively, when
placed on tho condnctor of un electrical machine. These hairs, he
argues, prevent tho occurrence of
strong electrical concentration in
the trco during a storm, in that,
forming as they do a vast number of
points, they discharge in a largo
moosuro tho electricity which col*
lects. 	
Mrs. Forsyth, the widowed daughter of a United States Consul and a
beauty of Samoa, is au American,
who at tho age of thirty-six owns
and manages tracts of 150,000 acres
of fertile land. Sho employs hundreds of natives, builds and runs
steamers, raises vast quantities of
cotton, and with a partner controls
ono of the most extensive businesses
in the South Sea Islands. She was of
great assistance to tho U.S. consul in
tho negotiations for securing the use
of tho harbor of Pago-Pago as a
coaling station, and recently tillered
to our government twenty acres of
her own property on the island of
Malulu for another station. Tho
American Consul at Sydney says tliat
she is better informed on the trado
and commerco of tho South Sea
Islands than any other American
south of tjio equator.—Jitx.
An exchange has the following
roal good thing of its kind ; A certain pretentious shopper, after teasing tho shopman of a millinery establishment beyond tho forbearance
limit, pompously ordered a reel ef
cotton to bo sent to her houso. It
was agreed that sho should be made
an example of, and a warning to her
kind. She was surprised, and her
neighbors interested. Soon aftor
she arrived homo, a common dray,
drawn by four horses, proceeded
slowly to tho door. On tho dray,
with bare arms, were a number of
stalwart laborers. Thoy were holding on vigorously to somo object
which she could not see. It was a
most puzzling affair. The neighbors stared. Aftor a deal of whip
cracking and other impressive ceremonies the cart was backed against
the kerb. There reposing calmly, end
up, in the centro of tho cart lloor,
wns tho identical reel of thread she
had ordered. Aftor a mortal strug
gle it was up-ended on the purchaser's
doorstep. The fact that tho purchaser oamo out a little later and
kicked hor property into the gutter
detracted nothing from it.

beeu struck in largo quantities at
Brockville.
The rails have beon shipped from
hero for the projected Regina & Long
Lake Railway.
The proposal to abolish the French
language aud separate schools in Manitoba is creating excitement in the provlnoe of Quebeo. It ia now forming
the subject of communications between
Lieut.-Governor Schultz and the Dominion government.
Mr. Holmes, a prominent gentleman
from Alabama, who is here, says that
he is au old friend of Mrs. Maybrick,
who is now under sentence of death nt
Liverpool for poisoning her husband.
Ho thinks that she is the victim of
hereditary monomania, im her mother,
tho Countess, narrowly escaped arrest
owing to suspicious circumstances connected with the death of her first hus*
band in Alabama many years ago.
Poisoning was suspected at tho timo.
Great opposition is displayed to the
movoment to increase the import duty
on American flour.
Mr. Eberti for Llllooct.
It is well understood now that Mr,
D, M. Eberts, barrister, of this city,
will be a candidate for the vacant seat
in tho district of Lillooet. Although
generally a government supporter, yet
Mr. Eberts is possessed of the qualities that might recommend him aa a
proper person for the position of attorney-general, and if elected for that
district the government will, nodoubt,
in tho ovent of Mr, Davie's defeat,
which many of his supporters admit is
a foregoing conclusion, call upou Mr,
Eberts to fill the position of attorney-
general, It may be said that Mr.
Eberts lacks   legislative experience,

Maybrick.
THE STRIKE ENLARGING.
London, Aug. 21.—The strike of
the employees of the London dock
yards is spreading rapidly. The men
employed at tho commercial dock,
1,000 iu number, joined tho strikcra
this morning. Thirty thousand strikers
marched in procession to-day. Socialists aro endeavoring to load tho movement, and a number of red Uigs wore
displayed in tho parade. The paradore

STRIKING   LABOREltS.
London, Aug. 20.—Ten thousand
striking dock laborers paraded the
Btreet3 of London to-day, marching
from their homes in tho East end
under the leadership of Socialist agitators Burns and CliumpioH. They
curried no banners but bare poles decorated with strings of red herrings
and crusts of stale bread, which woro
far more eloquent of tho t distress and
suffering they wished the well-to-do of
London to note. Tho demonstration
passed off without the slight* sfc disturbance, although early 111 the day a
rumor thut the police would interfere
with the procession, caused many
angry utterances of defiance and threats
of violence. The police, however, did
not interfere, the strikers at the conclusion of their parade peacefully disbanding nnd going home.
THE GERMAN STRIKES.
Berlin, Aug, 19.—The iiowb from
Rhenish Westphalia indicate' that tho
labor troubles in tbat region will bo
soon revived and that the mine owners
and their employees are drifting into
another strugglo for tlio maetery,
which promises to be a battta to the
death. Both sides are now thoroughly
organized and tbu coming srvike iB
certain to bo general and prolonged.
The minors held an euormoua meeting at Dortfeld yesterday m and completed the work of organisation by ■
forming tho Rhenish Westphaliau
miners union to counteract the union
of the mine owners of the province
The list of grievances 1ms already been
formulated arid a peremptory demand
has beeu nude for their redress. What
very materially embittors the situation
is tho very general impression on the
partof tho inem that their employers
have shamefully repudiated the agreements thoy made with the men when
they wont back to work after the last
strike.

for October 17th to take formal action
on tho matter. Chairman Harris, of

contractu!' John S. Natcher, wns shot
twice by a painter namod Wm. E. Lee.

and at this hour (2:45) is not arrested. Natchos's most serious wound is
in the bnck, tho bullet passing through his right lung.
The other bull passed through Ins loft

Tho lower pnrt of tho victims bofly ib

A GREAT  FAILURE.
Provioence, U. L, Aug. 21.—The
Wnuregan cotton goods mills, E, P.
Tuft, treasurer, tiday decidod to suspend payment, and allow notes to go
protest. Tho failure is connected with
the disaster that overcame the Lewis
Brothers, though it is claimed not to
be directly resulting from that failure,

Tho .steamer Barbara Boscowitz,

various canneries the figures are not
exactly known, and until something
definite is given an average of 9,000
cases is considered nenr the mark. The
largest pack is by the British American Co., tho manager, Mr. Gus.
Holmes, having put up 12,000 cases,
About 100 passengers, mostly Chinese

Thomas Jefferson, the drafter of
the declaration of independence nnd
third president of tho United States,
is credited with declaring, ono hundred years ago or thereabouts, that
ho would rather livo in a country
with newspapers and without a government than  in a country with a
government,  but without newspapers,   Napoleon, whose sagacity and
keen-sighted ness is generally admitted to hnvo been of a superior order,
said   that   four hostile newspapers
were moro to bo dreaded tlian 100,- i
000 bayonets.   The brilliant Hlicri-
clan is   quoted   as breaking out in
tliis vein :   "Givo ino but tho liberty
of tho press, I will give to the minister a venal house of peers, I will
givo him a corrupt and servile house
of commons, I will givo hint tho full
sway of tho patronage of  oflice, I
will givo him tho whole host of ministerial influence, I will give him all
tho power that place can eonfei upon
him to purchase submission and overawe resistance; and yet, armed with
the   liberty of  tho press, I will go
forth to meet him undismayed; I
will attack tho mighty fabric he hns
roared with that mightier engine; I
will shake down from its height corruption and bury it amid tho ruins it
waa meant to shelter." These tributes
to tho power of the press, as a co-
temporary well remarks, were uttered a hundred years ago, beforo
the press had attained anything like
its present position or dimensions,
Tho   development   of   the  modern
newspaper, with special correspondents in all parts nf the world, with
news reporters ih evory settlement,
nncl   couriers   on every road,  waS
scarcely dreamed of by Jefferson or
Napoleon or Sheridan.   They oould
not anticipate the achievements of
modern science wliich have rendered
this development possible.   "Without
doubt, the power of the press, especially of the independent press, is a
factor that has to be reckoned -\itli

the naturo of a tonic, which it wus
thought  would  be beneficial, especially to old people, but denounced
what he culled the foolish story that
it wos sboiothing that was going to
prolong life indefinitely or restore
old people to youth.   Neither he nor j
Dr. lirowu-Scqtiard had ever called
it the elixir of life.    The observations   of   l>r.  John A. Benson, of
Chicago, whnfc to show that tho port-on treated noticed  tho good ellect
only when ho or sho know what had
been dono.    His opinion wna however, that in most cases the fluid had
the (.-fleet of a stimulant, and that
for lho timo being it might strengthen,  but  doubted   that   the   effect
would   be   lasting.    "Ono or two
things havo struck me as being very
extraordinary," continued  tho doctor, "supposing that the ulixi;
the properties claimed for it.   Ono
of my cases was that of an old gentleman who was very infirm.   Instead of  filling the syringe with the
put mill: and wator into it
nml injected that into tho old man's
system.    Now, believe ino when i
any that tho old gentleman told mc
an hour later that he felt much bettor and for n day or two ho insisted
that ho had never felt so well iu bis
life.    I   did not tell tho old gentleman what   I   had  dono, and sinco
that Uni.o lio has thought himself a
great deal stronger tlian holms beon
for  years.    I   have not tho least
doubt that ho fcols bettor, but it was
imagination that accomplished it all
and not the milk and water injected
into his system,"    As is not at all
remarkable, considering the nature of
the compound, one fatality is reported from ita uso, by blood poisoning.
Dr. Henry, of a place called Bank
Lick, in Kentucky, prepared some
of the fluid and injected tlie liquid
into u decrepit old negro. Tho manifestations   from   tho patient wliich
followed   showed   that   there   was
something wrong with the elixir, ns
tho negro died in terrible agony.   It
was  supposed, very naturally, that
blood  poisoning  was  tho cause of
death.    Tho negroes in tho village
became   so   incensed nt tho doctor
that he was compelled  to leavo the
country immediately after tbe disastrous experiment,    Eventually he
could not bo found, and it wos supposed  that friends of tlio deceased
hud  reduced  him to "elixir" pulp.
Great   care,   we   should   imagine,
would  ho necessary in tho preparation and administering of the elixir
mixture to prevent blood poisoning,
and if it ever comes into genoral use
it will   not be safe to uccopt treatment at tlio hands of any Tom, Dick j
and Hurry practitioner, without first
toying a dose on the domestic oni

Tho Haytian troubles, remarks an
exchange, appear to havo reached
that stage when interference by the
powera is warranted.   Aooording to
latest   despatches   tlio light in the
colored  republic is no longer a war;
it is a aeries of massacres.    No respect is paid to tlio practices of modern warfare, but barbarism pure and
simple is resorted to on both sides.
Under the Berlin arrangement prisoners  uro   required to bo treated
humanely.    They nro not to bo fed
on tho best of the land, certainly,
hut they must not bo drugged beforo
the multitude and executed in the
terrible fashion adopted by Legitime
and Hippolyte.    Their life, indeed,
after   thoy  hnvo   laid down  their
arms i3 ssouiu   Tho Haytian massacres nre suggestive of but two incidents in tlie history of North America, in wliich civilized nations wero
concerned, says   the   same  writer.
Both occurred in Florida at tho time
that Franco and Spain wero lighting
for t he ascendancy.   The Huguenots
established themselves on the coast
and the Spaniards under Manendez
undertook to dispossess them.   The
fighting was severe.    After it was
ovor antl   Manendez  had  won, he
'learned of   the   prosence  of  shipwrecked Frenchmen to tho south of
him.   He immediately proceeded to
the spot and promised the Frenchmen a safe conduct, and for a specified price, a ship to take them homo,
lint after he  hud disarmed thom ho
inarched them to a spot from which
tliore was no eseapo and ordered a
massacre "for  the love of God" of
nil who wero not Catholics.   His instructions were neatly and promptly
executed.   A second party in the
name   of    religion   was   similarly
treated.     Retribution  followed   a
few yenrs afterwards when DeOour-
ges, a Huguenot gentleman of considerable courage, organized privately an expedition to Florida, and, with
tho aid of tho Indians, defeated the
, Spaniards and hanged every Spaniard
•who had not fallen in battle.

THE WOODEN INDIAN.
How Ho la Carved Out of Fino In
Defiance of Nature.
Maker of Cigar Signs Tells tho Secrets
or His Trado—Splendor, lEiitlicr Than
Fidelity to Nature, His Object-A
Nojjleclert Art.
"There, Pop, I've got all dono hut tho
top. What color Bhall I paint that?" Tho
spectacled wood-carvor looked up Irom tho
bit of cardboard that hotvas loitering find
said, in answer to his son's interruption;
••paint tho head red, Jimmy." Jimmy, a
lad of thirteen, with symptoms ot Incipient
painter's colic, was devotine; hia boat energies aud tho last fifteen mhiutos beforo dinner to tho decoration of a wooden squaw in
colors whoso brilliancy and variety would
liavo shamed tho splendors of the flrst rain-
how. The littlo shop was a sort of tawdry
•"latunryhall,resplcndont with tho gorgeous
■ireaonca of half a dozon olgar-stbro Indians
lu various atatos of incompleteness. A tall
';<jiiav*, having n scornful faco as yot unadorned with oyos, occupied a conspicuous
plnco in tho room; hor drapovy, couuisthig
of a yollow blanket and a red buffalo robo,
Kitillfiilly arranged ao us lo display a swell-
Ing bosom and a pair of monstrous calves.
"A special ordor," said tho wood-carvor W
a New York Star roporter, "tho man would
liavo that buffalo robo rod becauso 1
thought it would attract attention."
"Our business might bo called artistic,
het'ontliiuod, -'but thoro hain't much monoy
in to it. Yoars ago, when 1 was a young apprentice I had tho honor of making two fino
ship llgurohoads. Thoy represented parties
stiuidiu' full length' with corolla In their
hands. I don't know who tho parties waB
audi don't know tho names of tho ships,
but I was proud of tho job. That BOrt ot
business, though, dropped off fifteen years
ago. Tho American peoplo is economical to
tho detriment of art, and ouv business Isn't
appreciated as it ought to bo. I do littlo or
nailing now but mako and repair Indians
.and lottor oards with sentiments such
them."
Tho carver spoko with the air of a man
whoso art had boon prostituted to tbo sordid demands of trado. Ho sot no storo by
lln Indians turned in wholo tribes, and
fashioned with small regard for tho truth
or naturo. "Thoy-don't look liko Indians,
yon know,"hoaaid, with amiable frankness,
"Mo Indian ovor had features liko that big
fellow thoro, and I reckon thoro never was
a squaw who dressed liko that ouo with tho
rod bulTalo roue. If wo mndo 'em liko real
Indians they'd bo too ugly to sell. Wo havo
no models, but just koop on making thorn as
they'vo boen mado for tho last fifty years.
The idea is to mako thorn look pretty and to
work in as many colors ub possiblo. Sometimes wo get seven or oight different tints,
bcsidcB gilding. What aro they mndo of J
Whito pino. It works easy. Wo hack'em
out with saw and hatchot, rough 'om up
with big tools nnd polish'cm off with finer
implements, Jimmy, show tho gentleman
tho logs In tho collar."
Jimmy promptly lod the way te tho underground lumber room, where lay half a
dozen great pino logs from sixteen to
twenty-four foet in length. Against tlio
wall loaned a rudely-hacked pieco of tlmbor
Hint looked liko a damaged gate-post. Jimmy averred that in timo this would boa
splendid squaw, with a painted skirt and n
headdress of plumes. Ho pointed out whero
each leg would bo, which way tho faco
wonld turn and bow tho arms would appear.
The figure, limbs, pedestal and all woro
curved from tho Binglolog'ln ono pieco. It
diti noi, soem to contain tbo promise and potency of the cleverly carved figures In tho
shop abovo, hut Jimmy hnd faith that ho and
hia father would yot ovolve fi;om the unsightly log a comely squaw of conventional
pattern.
"1\ takos from six to sixteen days to mako
one of those figures," said tho master of tho
shop, taking up tho thread of his dis*
courso, "Tho simpler onos can bo whittled
nut In throe days and painted in three more.
Tho big, complicated figures, with tomahawks and wampum necklaces and beaded
bows, tako a woek or more, and the painting requires nearly as long. That squaw,
you see, Isn't the right color for
a squaw. That's only tho groundwork. We'vo got to paint hor oopper
color to-morrow. Thon we've got to put In
her eyes. They may bo bluo, gray or
brown. After that comes tho fino work on
tho feather headdress. Nobody cares much
what thoy look like, so they're showy, and
mint's tho thing that makes 'cm sell.
What do they cost) Prom $15 to ?00. A
good Indian, well takon caro of, will lust
thirty years. Onco a year ho ought to bo
Bont back for repairs, Taste in Indians
does not ohango much, and my customers
trust to mo to do tho thing right. Yes, wo
deal In second-hand Indians," ho continued,
■-lancing up at tha faded splendors of a
squaw, over whoso arm tho wood-carver's
street coat was hung for want of a bettor
clothes-rack.
"When a man moves to a new place ho
sometimes gots a frosh Indian. Wo tako
tho old ouo off his hands uud sell it to somo
small dealer. We used to mako negroes
from '48 to about'00, but later thoy got unpopular. Thou tho girl of thoporlodand
tho Grecian bond had a go; but mostly tho
trade runs steady on Indians. Going)
Woll, you may say that business Is dull,
though it might bo worse; but on tho
wholo, tho publio doesn't appreciate our art
na it once did." "■■-.*••■'■ I

RAISING   THE.   WIND-
Uow a Shrew*! I'miltce Oot u I'oikI fli no's
NoltCiwIicd.
For soveral years past tho public has
heard of and known a rather eccentric law
yor by tho namo of Ezra Andrews, who lm**
been oscillating between the professions of
lawyer and pedagogue, says the Pitlsfiold
(Mass.) Advertiser, At tho timo of this incident Ezra was au inhabitaiitof tho town ot
Burnliam, a practising lawyer. Finding
himself out of business, and being a littlo
short of lucre, hb perambulated among tho
business men to gctr a bill to collect. It, {.iji-
inore, ono o£ tho principal more-haul!" ol tlio
town, held a note against an old man whoso
homo wns in tho town of Canaan, which waa
outlawed.
Ho offered Lawyor Audrews a half-interest in tho debt if he would mnko a trip over
to Canaan nnd by hook or crook get the noto
renewed, which was accepted; nnd, n:i
teams cost money, our horo concluded to go
afoot, so ho wended his way ono pleasant
June morning to his delinquent debtor's
homo, a distance of flvo mites. . Imagine tho
chagrin depleted on tlio barrister's c-ounto-
umico when ho learned tho fact that the old
gentleman had been dead two years, and
bad died a pauper on lho town fnrm. Uo
sought the friendly offices of a stono wall,
and llie coming influence of a shady trco,
whero ho seated hlmoolf to think nnd got
lho bearings here, urged on hy " necessity,
tho mother of invention." Here lie studied
tho situation.*
Shortly, starting up from his rovorio, ho
borrowed a pen und ink and went to tho
cemetery, whieh was nob far distant. Horo
ho traced out lho last rooting-place of the
victim who bnd escaped his insolence bv
passing in his earthly chocks and woo
quietly sleeping liig last Bleep, This arm nf
tho law seated himself boforo"the marble
slab and copied the namo in full on to two
notes previously prepared und mado into
twe documents, ono in favor of Qillmoro,
tbo other running to Ezra Andrews or
bearer, not forgetting to add legal coats,
mileage, etc., half-dollar being ncldcd, lawyer-like, for tho etc. Under the name ho
printed a oross, and in small letters, almost
un intelligible, ho wrote, "by Ezra Andrews." Then casting a furtive glance
back at tho weird spot, ho took lho homo
stretch for Burnhnm.
As ho passed tho offlco of a well-known
speculator,' ho entered nnd accosted him
with tho common ussurunco of the legal
profession that ho was short and had a
note to sell that he would stand h shavo on.
The latter part of tho sentence wan dls*
tin ctly uudoretoed byLibby, who ashed to
see tho document, which wan shown him.
Ho remarked that ho did not know Uio
party signing tho noto; but, aftci Ey.m explained that, tho old gentleman owned and
had n sure title to his roal estato and owned
tho personal property ho had around him,
and did not owo one dollar in tho world, lho
nolo was discounted nt fifty cents on iho
dollar. Later on, when Libby hoard tho
facto, Andrews was called up, and said lite
statement was correct. The little spot, two
by six was tho dead man's real estate; his
winding sheet and coffin his personal property; death had discharged aU his debts,
THE  HUMAN   EYE.
Oli'ciinistmicos Undor Whleh It Cau Ron*
dei- Llt'o it Burden.
Evory body ha3 hoard of tho magnetic
power oftho human eye, nays tho Chicago
'Journal: It is said to have done, aud lo Btill
do, wonders to tamo wild beasts on four
und on two legs, to dominate, by sheer willpower, every thing that crawls, walks or
llios. There must bo a great deal iu it, for
thoro Ib one placo at lenst whero I'vo often
mado tho observation personally that thoro
is a certain fascination In tho steady staro
of tho human oyo, varying m degrees In
different porsons. That place is the street*
car. Every reader must havo noticed lhe
samo thing. Often ono man, possessed Of
an unusually fascinating eye, will store
everybody male aud femalo, out of countenance, antl that, too, without mooning it.
Tho other dny, in a North-sido cable cur,
the hour boing fivo iu tho afternoon nnd tho
ear being pretty well crowded, there was
such a man standing hi tho center of
the car aisle hanging ou to u strap.
His glanco would roll negligently
rather than intently ovor lho persons surrouuding liim, seated and standing.
Ho was no '•masher," either. Ho was
plainly dressed, and tho cast of his features and tho intellectual and serious expression on them bospoko a man not given
lo dallying with tho littlo sportive archer.
His look, as it swayed up and down, flitting
horo and there, was that of a mnn who
likes to study faces—that was all. But
every body was inconvenienced by it. Ono
lady, n stout'-porson of fifty summers at
lon3t, became oven so abashed by his steadfast gazo that sho took refuge in her handkerchief, and squeezed that tightly agalnot
hor face. A young girl grow so nervous
that sho dropped hor sachol and picked it
up again in great confusion, and ono nmu,
who scorned to bo a reporter, to judgo from
tho inrgo numbor of ovening papers in his
overcoat pockets and from tlio urrny or
sharpened pencils in his breast, iii;ul!y
buried hia noso in ono of thoso papers.
Thoro wns something weirdly powerful In
this man's gazo. Ho might make a fortune
as a mesmerist.  Perhaps ho is ono.

A great many people iu Nebraska, u

is an old story of a farmer's family whoa
members each determined that tho supper

and ouo duy each salted it hi turn
without saying any thing to tho othors.
Seven big hundfuls of salt wont Into thu'

Ono day, whilo tho farmer was digging a

His old motlior stood with arms akimbi

The Old Story.
About 11 ;30 o'clock this morning a
sti-ay horse and cow, who had apparently struck up a sort of tramp friendship, meandered down Columbia Btreet
and btopped opposite tho Bank of
British Columbia, The attractive interior of the building, bo plainly visible
through the polished plate "lass windows, induced the animals to tako a
closer look, and for this purposo they
stepped onto tho sidewalk. Tho heaps
of green bank notes had a powerful
effect on the cow, and it stuck its nose
against the window mid tried to breathe
in their fragrance through tho glass.
The horse, howover, could find no
satisfaction in such an empty foast,
and moved down to Woods, Turner &
Gamble's window, where, to all appearances, it gavo tho quint/* hpecimens
and insurance notices a critical inspection. After satisfying their curiosity
to Iho fullest extent, tho animals directed their courso up town, presumably to inspect the street improvements
and report to their follows the destrue-
ion of so much vnluablo pasturage now
boing wrought by theso samo improvements. And tho burning question of
tho day Btill is •'when, oh when, will

A mooting of tho farmers of Maplo
Ridgo was held in lho town hall on
Saturday ovening, 17th inst., and although tho weather was very unfavorable, tho district was fairly represented. By tho unanimous voto of tho
meeting Mr. Harris waa elected chairman, ln tho course of his remarks
Mr. Harris said that ho regretted exceedingly that, owing to tho inclemency
of tbo woathor, many of tho loading
dairymen woro unablo to bo present.
Tho object of tho meeting was to luy
boforo tho farmers a proposition to
form a joint stock company for tho
purpose of manufacturing choose and
butter, aho for tho purpose of manufacturing preserved fruit. Mr. Harris
emphasized tho fact that numerous advantages would nccruo from the farmers receiving ready money for thoir
produce, referring briefly to tho beneficial ellects that followed the inception
of cheeso factories in Ontario. Conaiderablo discussion followed the remarks of Mr. Harris. Mr, Ferguson
pointed out that a large quantity of
canned fruit waB annually shipped into
this district from foreign markets, a
state ot affairs that should no longer
cxiat, aa Maplo Ridge is preeminently
adapted for fruit culture and a groat
deal of fruit is wasted evory season fur
want of proper facilities for canning.
The opinion of nearly all present inis
that a croamcry would bo preferable
to a cheoso factory. It was thon moved
by Mr. J. W, Sinclair, seconded by
Mr. Laity, and carried that a joint
stock company be organized, tho capital stock to bo $5,000, divided into
shares of §10 oach. A committeo wus
thon appointed to wait upon the farmers in the neighborhood, discuss tho
mattor with them, and solicit their cooperation in tho proposed movement.
On motion of Mr. Hampton, seconded
by Mr. Laity, it was resolved to adjourn tho meeting until tho 31st inst.,
