by the teacher, J. E. Jay, assisted
by Rev. A. N. Miller: The trns-

other visitors, The pfcpils acquitted
themselves very creditably, showing that faithful work has been
done by Ihe teacher. They are at
quite a disadvantage from the fact
that about two-thirds of 'them do
not speak the English tongue ii
their hemes. It is less than twd
years since some of them cante
from Sweden, and these have -B-_.de

expressed themselves as well satisfied with the progress -fiie sbhodl
had made.

ELECTRIC LIGHT.
With poorly lighted, aye, un
lighted, streets, one's attention is
directed to the fact that things
BhouUL be better. With the municipal elections at hand, an opportune time has arrived for the taxpayers to look into the matter of
progress, anti one way of progressing is to pro-ride light* for the
Streets.
On Sunday, if on no other day
at the week, a large number of
people would, like to see a few-
Jig hts distributed through the town.
We are under the impression
that if the new Council can be pre-
vailed upon to take the matter up
the ratepayers of each Ward must
begin now, canvass their present
Representative and see if he U will'
ing te advocate electric .igh'.ing. If
so, pledge him support, if not,
bring out a man who wiil.
We believe that if the Delta Saw-
pill Company is approached in the
Right way the Council can be the
.means of introducing electricity for
lighting purposes to the general
benefit and satisfaction of all concerned and at little expense to the
taxpayers.
A persoual canvass, we feel satisfied, would reveal the fact that all,
or nearly all, of the townspeople
would ti-ike the electric light in
preference to the present modes of
lighting���coal oil, gasoline, etc
According to our list a good many
subscriptions have already fallen
due, others do so at the close of the
year. We therefore take this opportunity of soliciting a renewal.
If you can manage to do so we
would, like to have you call, in
order that we might be the better
acquainted.
MILK FEVER.
A short time ago, J. C. Snell, of
Ontario, mentioned to one of our
prominent famers tbat an experiment was about to be made with
oxygen on milk fever. Our neighbor suggested common air, which
Mr. Snell thought might be all
right.
N. McDonald, who has charge of
W. H. Ladner's stock, had a cow
sick with milk fever, and, the animal was nearly dead, when he bethought himself of a scheme. The
cow must surely die "unless relief
came and came quick. Therefore
the experiment was tried and tbe
cow was on her feet in an hour or
so.
Remedy���Take a bicycle pump
and fit up the hose so that it can be
inserted into the teat, aud then
pump in a quantity of air, Mr.
McDonald will gladly supply further information.
Don't mistake the cow for a
balloon!

It Might Be Taken Up
Here With Great Profit
to the Farmer.
Over $100,000 has been disbursed
in the vicinity of Waverly, this fall,
for sugar beets, tbe purchser being
D. C, Corbin's big sugar  factory.
The campaign for the saccharine
roots is now nearly over, having
lasted almost ten weeics. The season's yield, as bought by the refinery, will amount to'about 24,000 tons,
for which $5.25 per ton was paid.
Those farmers who have gone into
tbe business in a scientific way
have made a big profit at that price,
the yield per acre averging from
eight to ten tons on soil properly
prepared for beet culture.
With a capacity tor 40,000
tons of beets, the Waverly factory
can use 50 per cent, more beets
than were supplied it this year.
The beet acreage has been increasing year by year, but there is
still a demand for more than are
raised iu the immediate vicinity of
the refinery. The beets from 5,000
productive acres would supply the
factory, but so far they have not
been found. As farmers uear the
factory learn from year to year
what profits can be made from this
culture, they arrange to put a part
01 nearly the whol? of their land
iuto beets.
Waverly is 38 miles from Spokane, and tbe sugar factory is one
of the big institutions of this section. Like all beet sugar factories,
it runs only three months in the
year. During tbat time from 125
to 130 men are employed in the
factory itself. In addition, about
300 harvest hands are employed in
the fields during the beet season,
Of the 24,000 tons bought this season, it is estimated that 9,000 tons,

POTATO
STARCH
A potato starch factory mttry be
erected'at soaie point in thfeVak-
ima Vftlley. An 'expert has been
making investigations of the quality of irrigated potatoes and tbe
probable number oi acres that could
be planted to furnish tubers for the
factory. Tbe facts have been collected for a firm of starch manufacturers in Wisconsin. It is understood that the report will be favorable and possibly this new industry
will be located.
Tbe making of starch from potatoes is one of the profitable industries in several States. Tbe annual
���utput approximates 20,000 tons.
Of this product probably one-third
comes from Maine, a large portion
from Wisconsin and some from
Hew Hampshire, New York and
the Western States. The starch is
considered the best of all for print
factories and sells for 4c. a pound,
while tbe corn starch brings but
half that price. It is also used extensively throughout Europe in thc
manufacture of mucilage for stamps
and envelopes.
A factory for handling 1,200
bushels of potatoes per day is estimated to cost about $14,000. There
are forty-five such 'factories Jin one
bounty in Maine, Each one has a
capacity of turning out twenty barrels daily. A barrel contains 600
pounds'of commercial potato starch.
The bestjflpotatoes7yield about 16
per cent, of their weight Jin starch.
Poorjspecimeni and cullsJgive 6 to
8 pdirfcdVto tbe bushel of potatoes.
Sudh *tt.bers are seldom purchased
unless the price of marketable potatoes is so high as to prevent the
use of good ones for making starch.
{Process of Manufacture.
Tbe process of manufacturing
starch consists in separating the potato constituents and clarifying the
m&oilage portion for commetce.
The potatoes are Washed and cleansed -fyy .machinery. A rasping machine redndes the tubers to pulp.
Sofrffc of these haVe a capacity of
2^0 bushels kn hour. The machines are ot German manufacture.
Some small factories use graters of
limited capacity. These act on the
sacde principle of the rasps and
chew the tubers into a pulp from
which the starch -can easily be
���separated.
Pulp is taken from tbe starch by
'running water through the grated
tor mashed substance. This pulp is
frequently sold to dairymen and
""stock feeders. It also makes good
'feed fdr sheep. Some growers haul
'the pulp from the factories and mix
"with other chop feed for general
/farm stock. In many cases it is
���conveyed to'-tinderground tanks and
dumped to decay, ft cannot be
turned into the streams, as it .pot
'lutes the water ��td kills tbe fish.
The liquid containing starch is
���Renown as milk in tbe factories.
This passes through two or three
"���settling processes and finally is
driadiin kilas. The 'granulating is
obtained through several rakings
over screens while going through
the evaporators. There is bnt one
methed of preparing for tbe tnar-
'k;t. That tk the putting in large
barrels. The markets are iu the
'wool aud cotton factories of New
���England aud Europe. It is used
for sizing the warp before weaving,
for finishing the goods after they
���come from the looms and for mak
ing dextrin, or roasted starch, as a
thickendr -for applying the colors.���

FUNERALS IN LISBON.
THE POOR RENT COFFINS FOR THB
-JOURNEY TO THE GRAVE.
BLUE BELLS.
After the Bddr I* Taken Oat
Conrslfcned ta the Earth the Empty
Box Is Returned ta Its Owner te-fo
I'atfd O-rer add OTer Again.
"Tbe burial customs of the Spanlrii ee
ween In Cuba are in some respects much
liko those of Portugal," sald'h-former resident of Portugal. "The pobr there, like
tbe poor in Spain, economize on funeral
expenses by making one coffin serve for a
number of funerals In succession. In Lisbon at least tbe coffin 'is 'usually a voi*��
substantial piece of work,-covered wlfh
red leather end freely studded with brifcs
nails. Its lid ls attaches, with hinges, so
that the coffin opens and shuts likea large
trunk. Of course the selling price of an
article like this would be beyond 'the
means of any poor family, but the Ant
for one day is comparatively small.
"When a funeral procession reaches'the
grave ln tbe great Prnzeres cemetery, just
outside of Lisbon, the Undertaker's men,
Instead of lowering she coffin, open its lid,
take out the corpse and lower it into lta
last resting place. The empty coffin is left
there until a Qallego takes lt back to Its
owner after tbe mourners have retired.
"These Gallegos, by the way, natives of
Oalicla in Spain, do all the work of porters in Lisbon. If you ask a native Portuguese servant to carry a parcel or a valise
through the streets, he will answer you in
��� tone of offended dignity. 'Vou chnmar
tun Gallego' (I will go and call 'a Gal-
lego), for no native Portuguese would be
teen carrying a load of any kind fiVpubllo.
"These Gallegos have uo objection to
carrying a load, even when the load is a
recently vacated,- coffin. That ls the kind
of work they oome to Lisbon for, so that
(a their old age thoy muy go across the
frontier to Gallcia and live on their savings. And. ono Uttle inoidont that happened while I was tn Lisbon showed how
little Impression superstitions regarding
death make on the tiullego mind The
city of Lisbon colluded toll on goixis
brought within Its limits, and there wura
guards at thu different gates of the oity ta
see that nothing was smuggled iu
"Ono very rainy afternoon the guard .-�����
the Prazeros gate glanced along tho 1-. I
that leads to the cemetery and saw a si; -
'ploious looking package lying on ti ���
-ground closo under tlio wall on one ski
There was not a living being in sight.
The guard thought lit had detected a plot.
He thought thnt tK_t package, whatvvei
It might be, bad been left there under the
wall by smugglers, who were no doubt
sheltered somewhere In Its neighborhood
'and watching their opportunity to rush ll
through tho goto as soon as the rain held
'up a little. So the active and Intelligent
���officer got his little sword ready to draw at
h moment's notice, and, regardless of ths
downpour, advanced along the road to surprise and apprehend tbe smugglers, or, at
least, their goods.
"When ho got to within 20 yards of the
suspicious object, he made out through the
*aln that the oase on the ground was of a
fed oolor and studded nil over with brasa
nails. That discovery startled him a little, but the next moment !he was 'utterly
demoralized at tieelng the'litt of 'the cofflr
Ily open and & disheveled head thrust Itself out, It. eyes staring wildly. "Without
waiting to draw-his sword of challenge ths
'apparition, the *g*\itird faced abotitand retreated at a rttn. When he reached'the
���gate, he culled his comrades 'tb'conlivsnd
'see the obuudoned corpse that hnd burst
(open its coffin on tho wayside. The force
'seized their carbines and paraded under
'shelter of tbe archway, but what tbey saw
'was only a very bedraggled Gallego tramping toward thorn, carrying an empty coffin
'tn his back.
"On examination tha Gallego deposed
���that, being overtaken by the 'rain on his
*way from the oemotery, he'had shut him*
Iselt up In the coffin tt>*1:eop dry and wait
'for fairer weather, but, When ho heard footsteps stealthily aptifouching, he begun to
'bo afraid that sdi'ie 0116 was coming to
'play a trick mid lock him up That was
why he hud so suddenly thrust his head
-out aud stared. Uo wus 110 corpse, but an
'faonuiit. hnrdworl-.ii-K Gallego. As for
'Uie coffin, the souop-j guards might look
'tor themselves and kuo tbat It wus empty.
"There seems'to lie a eertaln morbid
fondness for whnt 'may be balled playln'g
with the dead ih Portugal. They seem tb
���take a peculiar di'llght in dressing up
'their dead and 'ex|.using tthetii to public
view. 1 huppuHeti to be 'present at the
'solemn requiem rif a cardlnul patriarch of
Lisbon, when the corpse, dressed In full
canonicals, was placed in A 'half sitting
posture to face the crowd In 'the nave of
the outhodral, and'I thought at the time
���thut the interment ought to 'have taken
(tleoe sooner.
"One fine Sunduy aftefabob'th spring I
waa strolling along one of 'the main thoroughfares of Lisbon wheb the shouts aria*
merry chatter of a lot of little boys ana*
girls attracted my attention to a slUe
street. The children,'all nicely dressed,
were coming down the 'side Btreet at ���
brisk walk, evidontly'lrltoresicd in something that was lielng'curried along by
three or four of them. Whon thoy reached
the corner, 1 saw that the' center ot interest was a very small brass studded coffin.
