The marriage ceremony, as set

lducted on Thursday by Rev. A.
Miller, when Miss M. E. Mc-

According to The Commercial,
of Winnipeg, the visible supply of
oats in the United States and   Can- \ should

is    2,681,000    bushels,    compared
with 5,849*000 bushels a year ago.
A   leading  Nova Scotia  farmer'
points out that the average man buys |
the different kinds  of   mill   feeds'
without knowing the   grade   be is ���
buying, the value of each,  or the j
kind of stock to which it should  be
fed.    In this connection it  may  be
said   that   numerous   experiments
have been made in Europe and America   in   order   to   ascertain   the
money value of various ieeds according to the nutrients they contain, but the results have been so
conflicting that Prof. Henry concluded,     in   his   standard   work
"Feeds and Feeding," that at present it   is impossible to state the
value of one feeding stuff in terms
oi another from calculations based
upon   tbe   nutrients   contained  in
each.    The value to the farmer of
these purchased feeding stuffs depends  largely   upon   the  sort  of
roughage   and  grain   with   which
they are to be fed. Mill feeds are so
subject to adulteration that several
American experiment  stations de
vote  a  great deal  of attention  to
making and publishing analyses of
the   various   brands.    Some brief
notes on:' the more common feeds
are all that a newspaper article will
Wheat is n suitable feed for all
kinds cf live stock, if fed with
judgment. Shrunken and damaged
wheat can be fed to advantage, as it
muy be nearly or quite equ.il to tbe
best grain for this purpose. For
fattening stock wheat is considered
worth about 10 p. c. less than corn.
The by-products ot wheat iii coni-
r.jon use are bran, shorts, middlings
and low grade flour. Bran is recognized as one of very best leeds
for dairy cows and sheep, and for
horses not at hard work.
On account of its coarse fibrous
nature, it is admirably adapted for
mixing with corn, peas, and other
highlj concentrated feeds, but for,
the same reason it is not suited for
feeding large quantities to hard-
worked hdrses or young pigs. The
distinction between shorts and middlings is not always clearly marked,
although the former is supposed to
be re-ground bran, and the latter
the finer particles of bran, with
some flour included. The poorer
grades of shorts often contain the
sweepings and dirt of the mill and
are not satisfactory for feeding.
Middlings are especially useful for
feeding pigs, along with skint milk
or corn. The lowest grade of flour,
frequently known as "red dog,"
usually contains the germs of the
wheat, and on account of its high
protein and fat content is a valuable
feed for cows, hard-worked horses
and growing pigs. The better sorts
of low grade flour are similar iii
composition to the best grades and
cannot be fed at a profit.
Corn is the best of all the cereals
for fattening stock.    It is used very
largely    in   the   manufacture    of
starch, glucose, beer,   spirits,  etc,,
and consequently has a long list of
by-products.    In  the  processes ol |
tnauufacture the starch is removed, j
and the remainder of the  grain is
sold   tinder   the   name   of  gluten!
feed, which is well suited for dairy
cows and fattening  stock.    Gluten'
meal   is   gluten  feed  without the |
hnil* and eerras of the corn and is I
very lien in protein and fat.    It is!
a bapilu 1 leed for dairy cow s, but on j
I account of its concentrated nature,!

You may, in the "evening by the

It was amusing to see two young
ladies from Ladner who had beeu
wading on the sand bars, and as
the tide was coming in they found
it difficult to reach shore without
getting their skirts wet. It would
have brought tears to your eyes, it
was so painful to see the despair
pictured upon their faces and the
furtive glances which they gave as
tbey slowly tiptoed their way to
shore, and the sigh of relief they
gave could have been heard for a
mile, more or less.

When' the bridge is OPENED it
Jfould be a good idea to run a mar
ket train ijrom  Port  Guichon to
3Wew Westminster, and so do away
���frith the present inefficient service.
It is a very difficult matter to believe the press despatches from the
Par East, at present, at any rate.
(One day we read that Port Arthur
has fallen, the next dry it is contradicted. There is only one thing
certain, and that is that many
thousands of Russians and Japs
have fallen. We shall be surprised
when the actual casualties are laid
liefore us. Without doubt they
fiave been great.
It must be very gratifying to a
faster to have such an enthusiastic
pall to continue in his charge, as
was that accorded to Rev. Thomas
Oswald on Wednesday evening.
"The largest congregational meeting ever held in the church" is
something to be proud of, as it is
something not always accorded
(0 those who so richly deserve it.

Congregation closer together.

Why is it that it seems so hard
for farmers to pull together for their
fnutual benefit?

fnished haying some time ago. He
fcas discovered a small field, since,

Jg-Jlfd,,   {ft f>as paying thi,s week,
St. Andrews'.
A large and influential meeting
of the members and adherents of
this church was held on Wednesday evening, the ioth inst., for the
purpose of expressing their desire
as to the retention of their esteemed pastor, Rev. Thomas Oswald,
who had previously intimated his
intention of retiring from his
charge here. The meeting was of
a most unanimous nature and appointed a committee to interview
their minister for the purpose of
having him reconsider the matter.
The Rev. Mr. Oswald has had
charge of this field in the interest
of Presbyterianism tor the past five
years, during which time he has
not only built up the church but
has endeared himself to every member of the congregation, both in and
out ot the pulpit.
A striking illustration of the
value of plant and seed selection,
as advocated by Prof. Robertson, is
reported in the Maritime Farmer of
July 19th, by a New Brunswick
correspondent. He says: "A few
days ago while visiting a neighbor,
the conversation turned to berries,
and then he showed me his patch.
It was small, but they were, plants
to be proud of. His plan is as follows: He tells his children, when
they are picking, to carry along
some little sticks, pieces of lath,
etc., and when they find an extra
strong plant with a good fruit stem
and plenty of berries, to put a stick
down alongside it. After the berries are picked lie takes up these
plants and sets them out in a bed,
letting them throw out runners in
all directions. In the spring lie
has some fine plants to set, aud his
berries are improving every year."

-Wind of Mrttaerland, aad th* V���
rocloaa "Pmrg." ot Siberia.
In mountainous countries, such aa
Scotland, a tog usually forms at the
top .of a kill and works downward.
(Che cold mountain top, cooling a warm
���current of tret air, renders lta moisture
visible, and this cold.fog, being of lower temperature than the air below and
therefore heavier, drops gradually to
.the valley. Colorado, however, can
show an exception to.this general rule.
There in winter the .frost on the low
.ground is so intense that a fog often
forms ln the valleys and works slowly
up the mountain side. This is known
���by the Indian name of "pogonip."
Peru has hundreds of square miles
���along its coast of rainless country. Iu
this tract rain ls /never known to fall
from ont century's end to another. Yet
the region is uot entirely barren of vegetation. Some parts of.lt, Indeed, are
.comparatively fertile. This is due to
the extraordinary fogs known as "ga-
.ruas." They prevail every night from
Hay to October after a summer that is
-sultry and extend up to a level of 1,200
���feet above the sea. Above 1,200 feet
rain falls.
Tbe "callna" of Spain is a fog we
may be grateful that we do not have.
It ls a dry, yellow mist which sometimes bides the sun for days at a time
'Over vast tracts of country and makes
the sky look as though covered with
Jeaden gauze.
Another peculiar freak of weather
IWe must be thankful to escape Is the
"wllliwau." This form of storm is
���confined to that furoff island Tierra del
Fuego. The coast is indented with
deep fiords crowned with high mountains. Down from their gorges drops
the "wHIKj'au." A low, hoarse muttering la heard in the distance. Suddenly, without the least preliminary _fuff,
a fearful blast of wind drops upon the
cea. The water. is not raised into
���wares, but driven into fine dust. Fortunately the shock lasts but ten or
twelve seconds, and calm follows at
.once, for no vessel could stand such a
���Wind for even half a minute. During
the coming and going of a "williwau"
the barometer .may >be watched to drop
a tenth of an inch or more and rise
again at once.
Similar in name If not ln nature ls
the "willy willy" with which Kalgoor-
Jie gold diggers are acquainted, to their
���cost. "Dust devils," some people call
them. -Half a dozen may be seeu dancing harmlessly along over the desert
���when suddenly one will dive Into tbe
���City and fill all the shop windows ln
Bannan street with dust nnd sand,
���blinding every passerby. The "willy

Most people have heard of the "fohn"
Wind of Switzerland, that warm, dry
,-gale wbicb comes over the mountains
.and ln spring will melt two feet ot
enow ln a'day. Its cause is most peculiar.    The "fohn" comes from the J
Bourn, un Rtnea uie Alps it ia wet,
like moat galea -which bave crossed the
sea, but tbe south face of the mountains receives its rain, and as it crosses
the summits it is dry. Tbe moving air
current is also compressed and therefore, dynamically heated. Aa it falls
into the northern valleys ln a cataract
of air it gains heat at the rate of half
a degree for every 100 feet of descent
It usually blows for two or three days,
causing great suffering by its dry heat
and-oppression. While it lasts the temperature is about thirty degrees above
the average. The "chinook" of British Columbia and the western side of
the United States is very similar to the

Word "blizzard" for a gale with snow,
liut the blizzard, however, must yield
lo the ferocious "burun" of the central
steppes of Asia and the "purga" of

such as these means death in a very

desert wbich blows out of tbe Sahara
upon Egypt. The word means fifty,

and .dry and sometimes brings pestilence with it.
Red snow we have all beard of. It
is caused by a microscopic infusorial
growth and only occurs In snow that
has lain unmelted for a long time. In
Spitsbergen recently green snow baa
been noted tinted by similar organisms.
"Gold dust" snow has often been
seen, but only in spring. At one time

Borne of Them Show the Old Tim*
Buttmate of Sermons.
Some curious:glimpses into the- life
of old London are afforded by the re-
porta made in the charity commission
on tbe endowed charities in the county
of London. .For instance, in the reports dealing with the city parishes
we have an estimate of tbe value set
on sermons by city men ln olden times.
Tbat estimate varied from 5 shillings
to ��1 10s. One Thomas Bright bad
left a bequest for a sermon to be preached on tbe 5th of November every time
lt foil on a Sunday, the minister to get
13s. 4d., the clerk 3s. 4d. and the sexton
ls. 4d. But David Glttin bad a more
modest idea of the value of a sermon
in tho same parish. He required two
tortuous for 10 shillings, oue to be
preached on tbe secoud Sunday in Advent and the other on the second Sunday in Lent The reader got 2 shillings, the churchwarden 2s. 8d. and
the poor sexton fourpence for each occasion. John Ireland thought 13s. 4d
enough for two sermons.
In 1600 John Winn left a curious bequest to the parish of St Bennet, Paul's
Wharf. A pound was set apart for an
annual sermon, the text to be taken
from the fifth chapter of St. John and
the twenty-seventh verse. He also left
enough to buy twelve penny loaves for
twelve poor people of tbe parish wbo
attended a sermon evefy Friday in the
parish church. But he expected more
for his pound than tbe annual sermon,
for before or after the sermon the minister had to spend an hour examining
or instructing the poor people in tbe
Christian doctrine.
The most generous donor of the
preacher was James Wood, who thought
a sermon in St. Nieholas-Cole-Abbey
was worth ��110s. every alternate year.
In 1625 he bequeathed to the Company
of Bowyers a sum to enable them,
among other things, to repair to the
parish church named, after they had
sworn in their wardens and master every second year, there to bear a sermon and pay tbe parson ��1 10s. and
the clerk and sextou ls. 5d. each. Iu
the parish of St. Michael Bassishow
one Edward Hcyliu ln tlie eighteenth
century left money tha interest on
which was to be applied to purchasing
two sixpenny loaves each Sunday for
two poor men or women who should attend divine service.���London News.

Discovering ��� Gold Mlae.
Gold was discovered in California ln
1S48 and in Colorado in 1858. The discovery was accidental in both cases,
and the fact created the Impression
that mines were "lying around loose."
Adventurers drifted about in hope of
"stumbling upon a mine." Mr. Thayer
in his "Marvels of the New West"
mentions several instances of lucky
"stumbling." Three men while looking for gold lu California discovered
the dead body of a man wbo evidently
bad been prospecting. "Poor fellow!"
said one of the trio. "He has passed in
his checks." "Let's give him a decent
burial," said another. "Some wife or
mother will be glad if ever sbe kuowa
lt." They began to dig a grave. Three
feet below the surface tbey discovered
signs of gold. The stranger was burled
in another place,, and where they had
located, a grave they opened a gold

meal or corn oil cake, also a valuable feed. Corn bran is relatively low
in feeding value. There are numerous
other "corn feeds" on the market
but they vary greatly in- composition and value aud shottldbe bought
only under a guaranteed analysis.
The feeding value of oats is well
known. Oat bulls, oat dust, and
oat feed or shorts are tbe chief byproducts of this grain. Oat hulls
are of little value lor feed, but are
often mixed with corn meal, etc.,
and the mixture sold as ground
oats. Oat dust consists chiefly of
the minute hairs removed from the
kernel in the preparation of oatmeal.
It has a fair feeding value, especially if broken kernels are present, and there is not too much mill
sweepings. Oat shorts or ost feed
varies greatlv in composition, although the better grades show a
feeding value similar-to that of oatmeal.
Barley'is afirst class feed for pigs
and dairy cows ��� The by-products,
brewers' grains and malt sprouts,
are largely fed iu some sections.
Brewers' grains are siniply barley
from which the dextrin and sugar
have been extracted. The' wet
grains are not desirable for general
use, but the dried grains are easily
kept and are rich in protein and fat,
ranking with bran and'oil meal as
a feed for dairy cows. Malt sprouts
are a- cheap and excellent feed for
cows, but'they are not greatly relished and only two or three pounds
a day can be fed.
Peas are very rich in protein, and
are among the best feeds for growing animals, dairy cows and pigs.
Pea meal is too concentrates! to be
ltd alone. There are no by-products in general use.

Oil cake or oil inealis a by-product of the manufacture of linseed
oil. It is very rich and healthful
feed, particularly for- fattening cattle and sheep. Its high protein
content makes it valuable for ieed-
ing in moderate quantities to dairy
cows, along with corn silage.
