The anniversary services In connection with the Methodist Church were
held hist Sunday morning und evening. The pastor the Rev. T. H.
Wright, conducted the services.
Large congregations were present,
especially in tiie evening, when the
building was nearly filled. Tne
morning address was devoted to an
account of the work of the Methodist
Chuirch In British Columbia in general, and the Delta in particular, and
closed with a statement of what the
pastor thought would be necessary for
the local church to do in oraer to
achieve greater things inthe fu.ure.
The evening serlvce partook ot a
patriotic flavor the address being based on the words "He hath not dealt so
with any nation." Mr. Wright pointed out (lsc) That Canada stood in
an unique position among the nations
of the earth in that no great wars had

The Best Convention Vet.
J. I). Taylor, Dominion member, in
answering many calls for a speech
presented himself as a shining
example of what could be done with
a defeated candidate. In his case it
was a glorious resurrection such as
would prove to be tin- case with Mr.
M.irk-nzio. He had attended all the
representative meetings held in che
riding for several years back and this
was the best one that he- had seen. He
referred to the somewhat doubtful
honor that the Delta had had In hear-
in g the acknowledged leader of the
Opposition as Its niember.e It was an
honor too expensive to be continued.
For the government to spend money |
in any way on lhe riding only meant
ceaseless criticism from Mr. Oliver,
while no appropriation meant no
criticism so it was natural that the
lines of least resistance should be
followed. The constituents would be
quite justified in allowing some other
constituency this honor. Mr. Oliver's
role was that of a fault finder, a
brake on the wheel of progress, a pari
that would be appreciated if the
province was going down hill Instead
of expanding and developing as it now
was, Referring to the McBride railway policy, he said It was unforcunat .���

The Liberals of Delta riding will

Some months b.ici; this question
was agitating the minds of many wcho
favored the abolshing of repres nta-
tlon in the council by wauls having
the councillors elected by all tire
voters in the same way as the reeve is
elected, The late Janus Storey took
an active interest In the matter and
had petitions circulated In favor of
the new form ol eh itlon of councillors, These petitions are still on
the Delta, with the death of Mr.
Storey being forgotten for the time
being. They uili be located, however, and actively circulated and, if
successful, brought to che notice of
| the council before that body ends Its
i term   in  office.

the scheme won't work." he said.
"This change in the arrangement of

October instead of thc end of the
flrst week would mean either the
elimination of the world's series or
the lengthening of the year until the
weather would be too bad for these
events. Anyway the positions are
pretty nearly determined hy the first
of October and therefore the longer
season would mean little to any one
except a lengthening of the suspense.

changed and I for one am against
any  plan   looking to  that action."

This interesting information on con-
rrete bl"clc silos is given by u writer
In ihe lb-i'eil.-i's Gazette, Chicago:
5 have worked out a plan to build
two 300 ion hollow concrete block silos.
In Hie business of cunning fruits and
regetables with whicb I have been
Hemmed for a number of years a
large quantity of goi d feeding material
was apparently wasted each season,
tins being especially the rase with pea
nines that went through the cannery
if l er the peas were taken fro ill tbe
jmI. it was arranged to build two
>i(cis. each twenty-four feel in diam-
wer and thirty feet lu height.
After figuring exactly on the form
vi tnnkiug the hollow blocks wu or-
itred these forms of one of our fouti-
drvnien. and lie made Ihein so Unit the
Idocks could be laid lu segments.
When ihe blocks were laid to the extent of the diameter proposed the
tonus were so accurately adjusted
ilitit the blocks came together within
nn eighth of an Inch, malting n clean
rirc-le, the slight opening at the end being closed up with n  Utile additional
The foundation was made of the
-Uameter proposed, of the proper mix-
.'���nre of six parts course gravel to one
part cement, thoroughly mixed. This
foundation was built up to the level
��{ lhe ground. The blocks were made
rfcoarse sharp sand and cement tnlx-
���m(. three parts of sand to one part cement, this mixture being subject to
the character of both cement and sand.
The blocks were made wilh n hollow
"���enter and laid one lifter another
around the foundation and up until
the [iroper height was reached, A
���rone shaped roof was added, thus completing the structure!   The inside after
Results of Tests Made by the Wisconsin  Experiment Station.
A bulletin Issued by the Wisconsin
experiment station says of machine
"Tests on machine milking covering
twenty months with twenty-nine cows,
embracing forty separate trials made
by the station and just completed,
show that machine milking Is both
practical and economical In herds of
twenty cows or more, provided the
mac-bine is cured for by an efficient
operator. These tests, In charge of I To- i
fessors F. W. Weill and G. 0. Humphrey, were planned to determine the
efficiency, economy and effect of the
machine upon the cow. A leading
type of the vacuum machine was used.
Cows were milked continually by machine for periods of four to sixty-two
weeks, or an average of twenty-six
weeks.  -
"The effect and efficiency of machine! milking on the cows were In general beneficial, must of the cowb standing well and  showing III lie shrinkage
the blocks were all laid was smooth-
���wi and painted over wilh pui-j ce
uenl pill lit.
lu building n hollow concrete block
silo great care should be exercised lu
gelling the proper mixture nf eeuiput,
gravel antl sand It) order to make u
solid, serviceable black. When the
silos were completed a sufficient time
was allowed for the blocks thorough
ly to dry out, and they were then tilled
to the top with pea vines, a --uuutlty of
water being allowed to go into the silo
with the vtltfS, thus packing the silage
down solidly.
In order to avoid an excess of water
a c-euient cistern was built underneath
the ground aud outside of the wall of
the silo, into which the excess water
passed, nnd from this cistern the liquid
was pumped out and distributed ou
the farm.
To build a concrete hollow block silo
���ticie must be willing to calculate ou a
greater cost than the amount that it
would be necessary to invest in nny
kind of slave silo, but in the northern climate especially the hollow block
silo is desirable because there is then
no danger of spoilage on account of
the freezing of the contents around tbe
inside wall.
Ileceiitly I had occasion lo examine
the silage which was taken from the
leuter of tbe silo after ii hnd been
illed for six months, and the fodder
-acne out In perfect condition, so much
t��i ihat my Berefords eal up clean
every day their rat ion of forty pouuds

Faults In Grefc'in**.
Breeders should not close their eyes
to the faults of their horses. On the
contrary, they should study carefully
to learn In what respects Ibey are
faulty or In what qualities deficient
and try to make such selections ln
uniting as Will strengthen thur-* qualities or rcetlfy the faults In ,-��*.' off-

from change from hand to mat-bine
milking, with practically the same average decrease in production as when
hand milked. Comparison with preceding periods of hand milking for the
same cows showed practically the
same average production. Stripping
by hand after machine milking was
found necessary in most cases.
"The economy of machine milking Is
duo to a saving In time nnd in help
necessary to milk a large herd. About
five minutes for each cow nre saved
where four cows are milked nt ouee
nnd more time when one man operates
three machines milking six cows nt
one time. Tho cost of operating two
machines by electric power was about
4 cents an hour.
"The bacteriological examinations
showed that the germ content wns
slightly decreased nnd the keeping
quality of the milk wns somewhat Improved by machine milking. Veterinary examinations showed no appreciable effect on the udders or the general health of the cows ns a result oi
machine milking.
"The experience of forty-one dairy
farmers covering periods from one
month to over two years Indicated
that a majority of them nre favorable
to the (machine, Some twenty-seven
reported favorably, eight were undecided, and six were unfavorable."
Selecting the Brood Sow.
A man of wide experience In swine
husbandry writes: "In selecting the
brood sow, choose one with a straight
or slightly arched back, straight lower
line, deep girth, wide up nnd down,
fairly sprung rib. straight legs, plenty
of bone, neat head and not less than
twelve well developed teats, for a
large number of tents ls one of the best
indications of n valuable brood sow.
She should possess a quiet disposition
nnd should be accustomed to being
handled, which is of great value in
caring for the dam nnd litter nt farrowing."
Do not feed corn to breeding ewes,
it is too 'heating Give two-thirds
oats, one-third' wheal bran, with n
little   oilmeal   mixed   in.     The   grain
i should be selected Willi care,
Salt as an Appetizer.
Salt makes animals livelier, stronger
; nnd more capable of resisting disease.
i Their flesh Is hardier, and the functions of the organs are more regular.
Their digestion is better, and they.can
subsist on fodder Ihtll otherwise might
be Injurious to health,   .Moreover, with
! the assistance of salt they can extract
I more nourishment from a given quantity of fodder, since the How of digestive liquids is more copious; hence
1 cult Is of special Importance.
Food   For  Strengthening   Bones.
The Nebraska experiment station re-
j purls   the   effects   of   different   feeds
upon the strength of the bones of the
hog.    Hogs  fed  com  alone  had  the
I weakest bones.   Corn and shorts gave
I bone  somewhat  stronger.    Corn  and
sklmmllk, corn and tankage and corn
and   ground   bone   produce   Increased
strength.   The bones produced by corn
and ground bone were more than twice
as strong ns those produced by corn
alone.    The stronger bones were not
larger than the others, but the walls
were thicker.
Potatoes For Colts.
An occasional feed of sliced raw potatoes substituted for the grain ration
of colts will prove beneficial. Those
that nre not inclined to eat them con
soon be taught to do so by cutting
them very fine und mixing them with
the grain ration. Potatoes are cooling
and tend to prevent constipation. The
latter must be guarded against when
dry hay ls fed. A brain mash once or
twice a week Into whieh a great spoonful of linseed meal has been stirred la
an excellent laxative.
Points to Be Considered In Purchasing
a Well Bred Animal.
The high prices which have prevail
ed for some time iu the mule market
have prompted many farmers to look
Into the subject with a view to turning their attention to the production
of this valuable draft animal. Considering the perplexities connected with
the purchase of Jacks, the following
suggestions from a Missouri breeder
cannot be otherwise than interesting
and valuable:
"I wish to call the attention of all
those In the market for a jack to some
pertinent facts regarding the purchase
of such an animal for breeding purposes. My experience covers an extended period In the business, and I
therefore feel qualified to speak. A
jack under fourteen hands high cannot be registered. It ls also Important
to see that the color Is black and that
the points are white, as, If the animal
answers to any other description, he
is   ineligible   to   registry.     The   buyer
who would be discriminating in the1
selection of a jack  should carefully
look  over  Ills conformation  nnd  give
special attention to his underpinning,
He should have a good hoof nnd a
wide heel, and It Is always well to look
for  big  bone,   heavy   head  nnd  ears.
Wife of Famous Explorer Has Also
Made Many Arctic Trips.
Mrs. Robert E. Peary, wife of the
famous explorer who reached the
north pole, was Josephine Dieblitsch
before her marriage to Mr. Peary in
1SSS nnd is something of an explorer
herself. Iu fact, she hns several times
accompanied her husband ou his arctic expeditions, sharing thp dangers
aud hardships, Her daughter, Mary
Annlghito Peary, wns born in ihe far
north in IS93 and saw little daylight
until she was six months old.
Mrs. Peary Is well known lo arctic
explorers and scientists and has been
of great assistance to her husband In
A WELL blllil) JACK.
Besides this, the buyer should assure
himself that the aulmnl is a proved
breeder. When you have secured these
points in ah animal you can be pretty
sure of getting your money's worth.
"As in all lines, there are tricks
which every mnn who starts out to
buy a jack should know in order to
protect himself from being made the
object of untrustworthy dealers. Ordinarily it is a very easy matter to
swindle the average jack buyer, ns
nine out of ten who nre out to purchase know nothing about the requirements of a good animal, nnd Invariably they are taken advantage of.
There nre n good many breeders in the
business who nre practicing the policy
of selling direct to the buyer Instead

most worth of his money should use
some discrimination in the choice of
those whom he patronizes."

Woven Wire Best For Fence.
Fences for sheep should not be less
lhnn three feet high, with post every
sixteen.feet, and preferably of woven
wire1 with a single barbed wire nt the

full He-cue are frequently crowded
through, especially if the wires are not
stretched tightly.
Facts About Sheep.
'���'roni records kept at the Wisconsin
experiment station of 240 ewes covering a period of live years lhe following
conclusions were drawn:
Shropshire ewes appear to be more
prolific limn any other breed Ewes
six years old produce the largest percentage of Increase, while young ewes
have the greater percentage of single
lambs. The percentage of ram lambs
Increases and tbe percentage of ewe
lambs decreases ns lhe age of the ewe
advances. A nun Is at his best nt two
or three years of age. The age of the
ram does not have any effect on the
sex of the offspring, nam lambs average about ene-hnlf pound heavier at

Feeding Sheep.
It Is always advisable In feeding
sheep not to feed loo much corn. Clover, bay nnd corn In pqunl parts hy
weight should be given during the fattening period. Except for fattening
purposes It Is better not to feed sheep
on com nt all. Corn is said to contain
about 80 per cent of starch and 0 pei
cent of oil, both being very digestible.
Oil makes fat, nnd the starch produces
hent and also fat. On account of Its
heat producing power It ls inadvisable
to feed corn. Becnuse of there not being nny great quantity of protein In
corn It is necessary to feed something
else with it, either clot er or alfalfa.
