A. FRASER,  Editor and Proprietor.  SATURDAY,   APRIL  4.   I902-  REDISTRIBUTION.  Details have been arranged for  the redistribution of British Columbia seats in the House of Commons.  Victoria will have one member.  The city of Vancouver, with the  addition of South Vancouver. North  Vancouver and Moodyville. will  have one member. The remainder  of tbe preatnt district of Burrard,  with the addition of Comox and  Alberni, will be formed into the  Comox-Atlin district, to which a  member taken from Victoria will  b_ given. The district of Nanaimo  will have one member and will  comprise that part of Vancouver  Island not included in Victoria,  Comox and Alberni. New Westminster including the village of  Yale, will have one member. East  and West Kootenay will have one  member who will sit for Kootenay,  and another will represent Yale-  Cariboo. ,  With two unimportant exceptions the boundaries of the new districts have been made to conform  to the boundaries oi the new provincial electoral districts.  Devons, Herefords, and Angus, all  of which are used as dairy animals,  and of which excellent beef was  made. What was desired in the  dual purpose cow was not only that  she jive plenty of good, rich milk,  aid fatten easily, but that would  produce a calf that will make u  good ground-work for flesh.  The records of some c f these dual  herds were extraordir.aiy, in many  cases surpassing that of strictly  dairy breeds. He gave a number  of figures not only of the amount  produced by the English herds,  but the result of tests they lad  made at Ottawa. All that was  said went to show that it was possible to have a cow largely of the  beef type and still that would give  an immense quantity of milk. In  t'-ie course of his remarks Mr. Gris-  dale said that it took more to keep  t ie dual purpose cow, and that less  butter in proportion was made from  the milk, but, on the other hand,  the calf of a strictly dairy cow was  only worth 50 cents when dropped,  whereas the calf of a strictly dairy  cow was nearly large cities, where  exclusive dairying could be carried  0:1 profitably, and the place of the  dual purpose cow was for farmers  who wanted to keep a good sized  herd that was easy to raise and did  not require the strict attention that  was necessary to dairy cattle.  RBAD IT THROUGH.  Would it not be a good idea to  amend tbe statutes so they will  satisfy everyone in the Delta municipality. Probably it would be a  better plan to discard them and  make precedents suitable for the  occasions when they come up.  The provincial legislature met on  Thursday for the transaction of  business. It is said that it will be  a short session.  'Twould Spoil This Story to Tell it in the Headlines.  To use an eighteenth century phrase, this is  an "o'er true tale." Having happened in a small  Virginia town in the winter of 1902, it is a story  very much ofthe present. Up to a short time  ago Mrs. John K. Harmon, of Melfa Station, Va  had no personal knowledge ofthe rare curative  of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. "Last Jan  uary," she says, "baby too- a dreadful cold and  at one time I feared she wovld have pneumonia  but one of my neighbors told me how this rem-  eny had cured her little boy and I began giving  it to my baby at once and it soon cured her. I  heartily thank the manufacturers of Chamber*  Iain's Cough Remedy for placing so great a cure  within my reach. I cannot recommend it too  highly or say too much in its favor. I hope all  who read this will try it and be convinced as I  was."   For sale by F. J. MacKenrie.  -OR A D-BORDED STOMACH.

Grisdale, agriculturist at  the Dominion Experimental Farm,  Ottawa, delivered an address on  the " Dual Purpose Cow " at the  recent Manitoba Pure-Bred Cattle  Breeders' Association, in which he  said he was not tbe champion ot  tbis class of cow. He distinguished betwten the " general purpose "  and dual purpose cow By the latter term he understood one that  would give a large flow of good  milk, and which, while she was  very thin in tha shoulders during  the lacteal period, as soon as she  ceased to give milk would begin to  put on not fat, but flesh, and would  readily become fit for tke butcher.  Tbe points of similarity between  the beef and dairy cow were enumerated.  He spoke at length of the dual  purpose herds ia Great Britain  where practically all the herds, ex-  ceptionmg in lb© North, were of  that type.
