Richard Mc-  Jride, returned tc. Victoria on Wednesday Evening ffom a tow of the  Mainland, taken {or the. purpose of  inspecting political conditions, He  pet wiih a most cordial re«*f>ti<.n,  Wherever he travelled he found  Conservatives all ftver the country  f ctively preparing (or the approaching elections, and returns fa\\y convinced him that victory will perch  on the banners «f Ihe Conservatives  when the last ballot has bean count*  «d on polling day,.  To * Colonist reporter who inter*  viewed hint, the premier said .  "General prospects could not.be  blighter tot lhe party. *fheff  Stems to be a regular slump to*  wards Conservatism all ovar- tbe  country. I fouud that a great  many Liberals propose to support  tH'e g^vernme«t, and they are tpafc-.  ing no attempt towards concealing  their intentions. Conditions are  improving daily in the various mining sections ofthe province, and  everything gives promise of a most  prosperous fait. On all sides I was  qiost cordially welcomed. Conservatives throughout the country are  most enthusiastic it. the work iu the]  interests of the party, aud this ac-.  tivity has been much stimulated by  the news of the gwat Conservative  victory in Manitoba. The Robliu  victory is to be paralled ia British  Columbia with out doubt.  "I did not have a chance to visit  Delta, but from letters received from  there, I know that the Conserva  tive party throughout the riding is  vtry strong. A great many ot  Joha Oliver's friends and suppoft-  ers are disgusted with his fusion  with J. C. Brown aad other Mar-  Unites in the face of' his strong denunciation of Martin last session,  The electors will be only too pleased  to support a candidate in opposition  to him. Very strong comment is  made ou Oliver's present position,  and particular notice is being yaid  to the course he pursued dicing the  session of 1902. It is expected that  a strong candidate will be selected  who will get the straight party vote.  This will mean a good majority fist  the government.  TRUSTEE   WRITES.  To the Editor of Delta News: Sir  —Allot* me space in the columns of  your paper for a few remarks in regard to School affairs, As to notice  not being posted on School house it  was an oversight on the part of the  secretary I must admit. But when  you say that very few people were  aware, that a trustee was to be el'  ected, you state what is not the fact,  as there is not a man or woman or  even a child of school age that does  not know that a trustee must be  elected the first Saturday following  the close of the school term. And  as to protesting my election you or  anybody else are quite at liberty to  do so. I am quite willing to drop  out for I never sought the office.  In regard to the secretary voting  you say it is not parlimentary. Now  if Johnny come lately would only  stick to facts and not try to mislead the public be would look up  the Manual of School laws which  state* distinctly that any two trustees can carry on business. How  if in school affairs in the future  you will try and give the truth to  the public the school board will  have very little to fear.  Thanking   you   for   space I am  respectfully yours  Wm.

Mrs. J. D. Locy and Miss West-  cott, of Fairhaven, have spent several days visiting with Mrs. W.  McCrea. Mrs. Locy returned on  Wednesday.  The fishing season has commenced jn earnest. A few fish were  brought iuto the Brunswick and  Wadham canneries on Saturday and  on Tuesday the number was largely increased. Three students are  spending their vacation at the local  mill making fish boxes, combining  recreation with business.  the Dawson school, Vancouver.  School Inspector Stewart, of Vancouver, will arrive in Ladner on  Monday, August 3rd, and will opei  an investigation in the school houst  the same evening, to inquire into  the election of school trustee which  was held on June 27th. An affidavit that the election was illegal  was made to the department.  entomologist and botanist, who js  out from Ottawa for tbe purpose pf  visiting the various farmers' institutes in this province.  Considering Dr. Fletcher's well  known abilities the meeting should  be of unusual interest and ought to  be attended by everyone in the  Delta who has any interest in agriculture.  Wm. Allison,  brother-in-law to  W. L. McBride of Port Guichon,  bas recently been appointed man-  „„-.-.-., I ager of the Bank of Commerce at  W. H, Ladner completed his hay. Greemvood  making on Wednesday, being the  first to finish. In this connection  the Reeve relates the story of the  oM Scotch minister, who used to  p*ay for a little rain to freshen the  *.fter grass. When a new minister  came into the parish a member of  the kirk expressed the hope he  would not be like his predecessor.  "Why?" enquired the new shepherd. "Oh," said the elder, "he  always managed to be finished first  and his pious wish was, to say the  least, & bit too previous."  ' . iv..i  Campers at Boundary Bay have  established a system of signalling  with their friends in New Westminster, colored lights being used. This  has so far proved expensive when  operating ordinary telegraphic  codes, so a special code was prepared and worked last Saturday night  by Roy Pearsou. The campers  learnt the result of the lacrosse  match by this mode of communication.  The bees are busy swarming.  Some queens are fanciful in choice  of a home. The other day a swarm  selected to camp under a lounge on  the verandah at Dr. A. De R.  Taylor's. Another swarm has occupied an old chimney in town for  some seasons and there is much  speculation among apiriaus as to  the value ofthe honey in the miniature castle.  FARMERS' SIDINGS.  Manager Van Sant, in company  with the reeve aud councillors in-,  spected the farmers' sidings on the  Port Guichon-Cloverdale section 011  Thursday.  The general manager stated that  the company will put in the sidings,  where settlers wish them, providing  they make the roadway to the siding. The compauy is prepared to  haul the gravel if the applicants  will load aud unload the same.  CHINAMAN INJURED.  A 'Chinaman employed by Charlie Fong,  the Chinese merchant,  was brought to Dr. King ou Suit*  day afternoon with a badly injured  eye, the left one.   He is at any rate  temporarily blind in that optic. "He  reported to the Reeve that he was  knocked into the ditch by a bicyclist who was proceeding ottt of  town.   -Ou picking himself up, he  says, he was: either struck or kick*  ed by the mau, a stranger to 'him.  The Chinese have offered a reward  of jj.ro for bis arrest and the matter  has been placed ia the hands of  constable Jordan.  The Ontario Lord's Day Alliance  act has been declared ultra vires.  On Saturday afternoon the width  of the Trunk road was not appreciated by a Chinaman who was  knocked over by a passing rig, and  is now suffering from a very sore  back.  The Orangemen intend to erect a  county Orange hall on a site, which  has been secured at the corner of  Hastings street and Gore avenue,  Vancouver. To aid this object they  propose having a monster moonlight excursion on August 6th. The  largest available boat is to be secured as well as a band and orchestra for dancing. The trip will  probably extend to Bowen Island  or the mouth of the Fraser to view  the fishing fleet by moonlight.  T Thirkle has sold his bouse and  ground 011 the Trunk road to Chas  Walton, engineer of the Port Guichon - Cloverdale railway. Mr  Thirkle and family move on. Monday to their farm in the suburbs.  Mrs W R Campbell of Sacramento, Cal, who has been visiting  her sister Mrs. Robinson, aud neice  Mrs W H Smith, leaves for the east  in a few days. Miss Irene Kobia*  son will accompany her.  Last Saturday the Ocean Dock  was the scene of a fishermen's  sweepstakes sailing race. Th*  course was from the fishermen's  cannery around the buoy at Grant  & Kerr's mill to Currie & McWiK  Hams' back to the starting point,  The first prize was $10 and the  second £7. There were three com*  petitors who came in as follows; 1.  Antoine Vidulich; s, Marco Vidn-  lich; 3, William Donnelly.  Mrs. F. W. Howay, who has  been on a lengthy visit to Ladysmith has returned to the Royal  City accompanied by her husband,,  who went over to inspect some mining properties in which he i>  interested.

Farmers will be. pleased tb learn  .that Dr. Fletcher, the Dominion entomologist and botanist, accompanied by the deputy minister ot agriculture, will meet them at the Town  Hall on Friday, the 31st inst. The  hour selected, 9 p. m., has been  well chosen in. view of the haymaking. The department has recently issued some valuable hints  Jo dairymen, farmers and fruitgrowers, but frequently the same  advice condensed, but given viva  voce by an expert, eye to eye with  his audience, has more lasting effect. A fewtv.eeks ago wp reported  Jhe advent of an army of cater-  jillers across the border but now  inquiries from large importers  from Great Britain, Cape Colony  and New York. Victoria is starting a poultry association. In all  these matters l)elt\ farmers have  great interest and they should take  advantage of Dr. Fletcher and the  deputy minister's presence to roll  up and listen to their advice.

Editor The Delta News, Sir: Be-  iore leaving Ottawa, the British  Columbia Silver Lead Miners' Delegation desire to publicly express  their appreciation, not only of the  action of the government in acceding to their request for a bounty on  lead,  but   also of  the unvarying  ant question.  Too great credit cannot be given  slightest difference which way the  .the deputy minister of agriculture j jury decides? If the coroner's in-  j^as been officially informed of th«ir j quest is absolutely useless, as it  arrival at Trail, where they art- j seems to be, it is time that the  pubating. They are technically  called ','engonia California,!? and  pre possibly allied with, if not  jden^cal to, the '.'hopper locust" of  Soutjht  Africa,  which is more de-  sttuctive to the farmer than Boer  1  and Briton combined. We are  afraid the provincial constable at  Trail sadly under estimates the  damage which may be inflicted by  an army of this description.  The warning issued to milkmen  js important.   It is   .veil   known  1 •'     j '. 'I  Jhat milk is very susceptible to  taint from improperly cleaned jugs,  pails, etc., but it may npt be such  common knowledge that the absorption of odors is another characteristic. We have all heard of the  cow with the iron tail, but the cow  TPtft1   an   ordinary apgepdage re 7  quires pure water to  drink   and  should not depend on awamps or  sluggish   streams  for   its supply.  The    pamphlet    further    advises  against the use of turnips or rape  for milking cows, and green clover  ahould no be the sole staff of life  for a dairy fed cow.    The paper  concludes with the advice that the  kino should have free access to sa!t  at all times.  Many farmers in £he Delta have  recently lost cattle by bloating, but  are in doubt as tp the particular  weed which causes the complaint.  [On this point alone Tte.

The ground shou'd be  kept stirred up so that moisture  ! be encountered much bad water,  which, together with the severe  heat, gave him a. very severe diarrhoea which it seemed almost impossible to check, and along in June  the case became so bad he expected  to die. One day one of his neighbors brought him one small bottle  of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy as a last hope.  A big dose was given him while he  was rolling about on the ground in  great agony, aud iu a few minutes  the dose was repeated. The good  effect of the medicine was soon noticed and within au hour the patient  was taking his first sound sleep for  n fortnight. That one little bottle  worked a complete cure and he  cannot help but feel grateful. The  season for bowel disorders being at  hand suggests this item. For sale  oy F. J. MacKenzie.

Since the hay crop is likely to be  light this year, says the Colonist, it  is doubly important that it be handled to the best possible advantage  and cut and cured in stub a way as  to secure the largest amount of nutrients in the most digestible and  palatable form. To this end it is  well at this season to bear the following facts in mind : Early cut  hay is relatively richer ita flesh-  forining elements; it is mote palatable and digestible ; it has a sweeter aroma ; but it has the disadvantage of being much mere difficult  to cure. Grass, as it approaches  maturity, gains considerably in  weight; part of this increase consist* of starch aftd sugar, which is  vaiaable to the feeder, and part  consists of crude fibre, tf&ich decreases digestibility, and renders  the hay less palatable. Early cut  hay is more valuable per ton than  late cut; but a krger amount of digestible nutrients per acre is obtained by later cutting. Late cut  hay has also the advantage of being  Wore easily and rapidly cured, thus  diminishing not only the labor but  also the risk of loss in harvesting.  Early cut hay is especially .valuable for sheep, calves, colts and  dairy cattle, while for fattening  cattle, late cut hay will give as  good results. In experiments con-  dfcrted by Pi of. Sanborn, of New  Hampshire, and Prof. Henry, of  Wisconsin, to determine the relative  vahie »f early and late cut hay for  fattening steers, the advantage was  a little in favor of the late cut hay:  Whether hay should be cut early  or late will depend, therefore, on  the following conditions: 1. The  stod__ to be kept; at least enough  hay should be cut early to stQiply  the dairy cows and young stock.  *. The season; if the weather be  '"csrtchy" it is generally wiser to  defer the cutting until somewhat  later. 3. The acreage to be handled ; if the crop be large, it will tbe  necessary to begin cutting earlier.  % earlier cutting is meant ctlt-  ■ting at or before the time of full  bloom. By late cutting is meant  cutting between the time of full  'bloom and ripening. In any case,  'however, hay should be cut before  it is ripe enough for the seed to  •shell readily. A crop of mixed  clover and timothy hay is atWte  -best, if both quality and quantity  are to be considered, when from  •ne-third tp one-half of the clover  blossoms have turned brown.  Hay should be cured and stored  !«. rapidly as possible after cutting.  'With this in view, it is better to  defer cutting in the morning until  most of the dew i3 off. If 30 tons  or more of hay is to be hanted in a  season, a tedder will be found a  good instrument. Care must be  exercised to avoid storing hay  while at all damp from rain, dew or  absorption from the ground. Moisture of this kind wjll -spoil hay  much quicker than the 'prater contained in itS'pWn sap,  ... jjpast year.fttenticm Was called to  the method of curing clover hay  practised successfully by Mr. Henry  Ql_jpdenping, . and a nuniber of  other prominent and reliable farmers. Mr, Glendenning thus out-.  I lines his method : Cut when in full  bloom, or when the blossoms contain the most honey. Cut in the  morning after the dew has dried oil".  That cut in the [morning may be  ■cocked up in the afternoon. The  mower should not be run later than  4 p.m., and all cut that day should  be put into the barn JneXt day and  well tramped into the mows. He  especially emphasizes the following  conditions':  1. Do not cut in the morning untill the grass is dry.  x. Do not allow fresh cut hay to  lie on |the ground over night, exposed to dew or rain.  3.. If any hay should get wet  with rain', let it stand in the cocks  until thoroughly dry before taking  to the barn. ^  Mr. Glendenning states that his  hay came out as green as when it  was put in, with 'the blossoms a  beautiful pink color, which would  indicate that it had not heated so  much as one would naturally expect.  The advantages of this method  are: i. The saving of time between cutting andjstoring, lessening  the risk of damage from rain. 2.  All leaves and blossoms, the most  valuable parts of the plant are  saved. 3. The hay is cleaner and  blighter than that cured in the old  way.  Of course, hay cannot be cured  by rule; conditions vary. A good  method of curing on a gravelly upland farm would be quite unsuitable  to the flatter clay and humus soil.  The length of time forwhbh hay  slrould be exposed in the [swath  will be determined by its ripeness,  by the humidity of the atmosphere,  the temperature and moistness ot  tie soil, the presence or absence of  Wind, etc. So that every man  must be, in large measure, |a law  unto himself ttnd his practice tn«st  be governed by personal experience.  It appears to be a fact, however,  that when the -conditions are favorable, and the necessay skill and  judgment exercised clover may be  stored much greener than was  formerly thought'possible, and that  the very best quality of hay may  be secured in this way.  FRUIT  CULTURE.  In a recent lecture on "Fruit  Culture" delivered before a meeting  of residents of Ladysmith, R. M.  Palmer had many things to say of  interest to farmers throughout the  province. Here are a few [of his  main points:  For an orchard, slopes are more  preferable to low lands, being less  subject to frosts,  Peaches are accepted as the  standard whereby to gauge the  hardiness and tenderness of fruits.  If peaches thrived in any spot,  many other fruits could be grown  there tojadvantage.  Of all aspects the southwestern  is the best|; the worst are the eastern points of the compass.  Wherever fir trees have grown  the soil is sour, and the only thing  that will really grow well 'and  thrive there is the blackberry. Such  soil should be generously top-  dressed with stable manure, well  rotted, and lime. This should| be  spread lightly on the surface'and  (gently worked in with the* rakejor  'harrow.  Every new district invariably  falls into the hands of the travelling  'tree pedlar. British Columbia has  *uflered much from this causej; in  fact, it has suffered more from the  importation of worthless plants  than it has from all the fruit pests  put together. Get plants from B.  C. nurseries, and then if there is  anything wrong with the goods  you;can get.at t14fes:'! ,*v- -C:!onist.  WONDERS OF THE NEEDLE.  Beautiful   Work  of  the Artisans mt  Former C anturien.  The .vondecs, .of, $9, nop/He -.were .Jp  .ancient times in Egypt, India, Baby-  rioniu aud Pliaanlcia mainly lavished  by tvomen on veils and hangings for  temples. Connoisseurs consider the veil  decorating the tomb of Mohammed at  Medina, priced at 10,000,000 rupees,  the most marvelous piece of embroidery ever made. Its pattern, a cunning  interlacing of scrolls and arabesques,  exclusively delineated with rare pearls  and precious stones, produces, wlieu  exposed to the rays of the sun, a stupendous effect Of coloring, soft and harmonious and equal to the bold gracefulness of the design. I.iuen, silks, leather and the richest stuffs were in turn  beautified with the little insiguiticaut  tool, the needle.  Diaphanous Indian muslin charmingly embroidered with green beetle wings  Is still renowned, as well as examples  of painted spangles and artificial pearls  strewn amid devices wrought in gold.  But where is now to be found the Incomparable Decca muslin, thirty yards  of which were once inclosed for « turban iu an ordinary cocoauut incrusted  witli gems and presented by a Persian  ambassador to his master, tbe Shall.  Other varieties kiiow-n as invisible  have also disappeared. The term Originated from the fact that when dipped  iu water or spread out on the grass the  material was lost to the eye through  Its extreme fineness.  The trained fingers have disappeared,  amd through modoru competition customers are no longer willing to pay the  real value of genuine hawl work. This  superiority of eastern craftsmen over  their western fellows was recognize*  centuries ago, first by Portuguese, who  were in the habit of sending satin to  India to be embroidered by the natives  after European designs, a fashion  which at times renders somewhat puzzling the classification of the .Marvels  of handiwork.  The French followed suit, since the  mujorlty of the Louis XVI. court sets,  including coat, waistcoat and breeches  lu satin, velvet plush or corded silk,  so exquisitely adorned with delicate  sprays and admirable borders wrought'  In satin and tambour stitches, are due  to the skill and industry of the Chinese, who have reproduced the French  devices with floss silk in such lovely  and fast colors, which still appear in  all their beauty, with a mellowness lm-,  parted by time which further add* to  their charm.

To Intelligent Business  ! Men and Farmers:  BOOKS AND READING.  Reading la to the mind what exercise  Is to the body.—Addison.  A home without books is like a roots  without windows.—Beecher.  To read without reflecting its like eating without digesting.—Burke.  Books are the best things well used;  abused, among the worst.—Emerson.  Next to acquiring good friends tbe  best acquaintance is that of good  books.—Cotton.  Some books aro to be tasted, others  to be swallowed and some few to bo  chewed and digested.—Bacon.  Half the gossip of society would perish if the books that are truly worth  reading were but read.—Dawson.  What is a great love of'books? It is  something like a personal Introduction  to the great and good men of all past  times.—John Bright.  The three practical rules I have to  offer are: (1) Never read any book that  Is not a year old; (2) never read any  but famed books; (3) never read any  but what you like.—Emerson.  ■What Molten Ttlngs Grow.  According to Maurice Springer, a  French writer on the subject, tho en-  orgy of growth is closely related to  electric energy and may be identical  with it. At any rate, growth energy Is  closely connected with the phenomenon  called osmosis—that ts, molecular pressure due to differences of density in  adjacent liquid masses. Such 'molecular pressure in the cells of the body he  believes to be the phenomenon .that underlies the multiplication of these cells  la growth, and osmosis bas been shown  by experiment to be closely connected  with electricity. The writer referred  to believes that we shall soon be able  to measure growth energy as we now  do beat or electricity and perhaps con-  .trol tt so aa to produce tall or short  families 'or races at our (pleasure.—  Success.
