<��f taking in tbe Orange celebration
at Vancouver. The Orange boys
are to be congratulated upon the
successful way in wliich the}' con-
ducted their part of the celebration.
Our Band, too, took their part,
well and received great praise from
those who know what band music
ought to be. Second best, was the
verdict, and that only on account of
numbers. Their music was so
much admired that it was hard to
convince some that it was a country-

On Monday last one of Jos. Jordan's teams ran away and collided
with another of his teams. It appears that W. Dickson was at the
mill for lumber, and while changing the teach something started the
horses off with the fore carriage.
They ran all the way from the mill
to the Slough road, turned the corner by Clark's blacksmith shop,
down the Slough road to the barn
where they oould not agree as to
whether to go. in or not, finally it
was decided to go on to tlie wharf.
At the wharf stood Shorty with tbe
s.age, and he grasped tlie situation
in the twinkling of an eye, and
switched his rig so as meet the
oiir��*hjng    {pan*.    bxMijdsijde W,
whieh ended the runaway in a general mixup of horses and wheels.
But for the presence of mind on
the part of Shorty, the damage
might eaily have run up in the
hundreds of dollars, while $75 will j to $1.75 per acre
cover it all.
"Following is.the address of Prof.
Sliutt to the Farmers' Institute
here, '.'.'he Professor came here to
learn something about the different
soils rd to see .the ground. It
wa;-: necessary that he should see
different formations ,to 'enable him
to give practical adviee when written to. We cannot always tell by
the appearance of the soil as to its
productiveness, iheie.are- other important tactors to be considered.
Climate for one. We must consider the effect o light and air on
the soil. Roots of plants want air,
it i| necessary for the Hie of the
plant, nature supplied food through
leaves. He was sorry to see so
maiiy trees denuded of their leaves,
plants cannot live without leaves
and a little Paris green would kill
.the worms. Roots want air as well
as leaves. The soil is a reservoir
for air, drain-age removes the sur
plus-water and air takes-its place.
Roots breathe  the same as leaves,

stioeessfully the soil ,must be in a

was to retain moisture. Clay bakes

but mix it with sand and - humus
and plants will thrive. Peat is a
vegetable matter, some of which
holds 300 times its own weight of
water. Farm manure is one of the
best forms of manure for improving
the mechanical condition of the
soil. Dairying is .always advocated
because of the quantity of manute
made, and the Delta is particularly
adapted for dairying. Selling butter -does nqt .remove r>_a.i t food;

A very influential meeting of the
subscribers and others interested in
the Oatmeal Mill was held at the
School House, East Delta, on Monday last. R. E. Kittson was appointed' chairman and N. A. McDiarmid; secretary.
The chairman, in opening the
meeting, impressed upon the farmers the great advantages they
would derive by co-operation, showing by this means the farmers
would secure the full value for their
D. Rabbitt was present and explained to the meeting the working
of a co-operative business and its*
effects ou a community of farmers
where it had been successfully carried out.- Messrs. C. Brown, J.
Burr, D. Johnson, R. E. Kittson
and J. Guichon were appointed a
provisional board of directors to
assist Mr. Rabbitt in getting the
business into shape and interviewing the farmers in the district generally so as to give everyone a
chance to take up the shares. It
was proposed to have a working
capital of about $50,000, of which
about $20,000 worth is already
taken up.
The subject of the location of the
mill was also brought up and the
board of" directors were empowered
to secure options on sites in Vancouver, New Westminster, and in
the Delta municipality, so that at
the next meeting, to be held shortly, a choice of sites can be laid before the shareholders for their consideration. We think that the mill
should be erected at or near Ladner, for several reasons, one being
that in case of a bad season the
oats could be taken better care of
here than if. they had' to be shipped
off to be dried, also that if it is-the
intention of the company to grind
grain for tbe farmers they could not
afford to pay freight both ways
either to New Westminster or Vancouver, also that the freight on
graitt to either of the pieces would
be more* expensive than shipping
the finished' article from here, and
that it would necessitate building
an extra warehouse at Ladner, the
farmers should always bear in mind
their experience-last year with-their
crops and arrange to have everything handy in case such another
bad season should occur.
No man or woman will hesitate
to speak well of Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets after once trying them. They always produce a> pleasant movement
of the bowels, improve the appetite
and strengthen the digestion. For

"Then instead of firmly closing the lips,
������ so many woman bave a habit of doing,
wbich gives heaviness to tbe Jaw and
hardness to the mouth, they should learn
to bring tbo lips together very lightly, allowing that always agrteuble dimpled
effect iu tbe corners. It is tbat position
wbich makes the month of a healthy ohild

Interested expression.
"liut where tb* mouth ls inclined to
stand open, with loose, undefined lines,
tho vigor of th* mnst-age should be redoubled, using the treatment us atonic to tout
up flaccid nerves aud muscles. With such
a mouth the object must be to letim ta
hold the lips with firmnnse tempered by
graca, going through thv practice us faoial
gymnastics for stated periods and until
tha training becomes a natural habit.
Strange as it may appear, this styls of
mouth is most common among men, and
not weak men either. Whenever I se* a
person with that mouth I feel assured that
he has, If possible, too much firmness ol

acquired in childhood and should be overcome.
"Closely compressed lips, I think, ar*
most common among womon, and as a
rule not overheolthy women.   To me this
habit is indicative of nervousness, and 1
always supplement my treatment with l>
good nerve food or tonic. This is. especially necessary where tbe lips ure inclined tc

'' Besides a thorough massage once a day

"The lips should be rarely lunntenn*

"For that rich rod color so much na-
mired in the lips, w' ioh oan never be ini-

circulation. Tho manipulations of a gobu
masseuse are very benelicial and should

perimental farms lead to that conclusion. Short rotations are best
and should always include clover
one year to keep up the fertility of
the soil. There is another reason
why we should keep up the fertility
of our soils, that is to keep up 'he
life of the soil. We must not think
of our soil as so much dead matter,
it is teeming with germ life; in a
cubic inch there are hundreds of
thousands of these germs and they
must have water, air and warmth,
just the same as the higher forms
of life, the fertility oi the soil is determined by the number of these !
germs in a cubic foot of soil. Large j
quantities of plant food exist in
most soils, but it is not always
available. The fertility of the soil
depends on the quantity available.
Cultivation of a deep soil may be
the means of increasing the amount
of available plant food.
No crop can be produced without
the loss of vegetable matter, this
must be replaced by manure or by
plowing down clover. Clover is
better than any other crop for this
purpose, because it contains more
nitrogen, if proper methods of cultivation and cropping were followed
the soil would improve.
Continuous cropping has exhausted the fertility of most soils in the
Eastern States. Prince Edward
Island and Nova Scotia. It would
pay better to tarm less land and
farm it better, growing clover
along with the grain crop does not
injure the grain. Peaty soils are
sour and lime should be used to
neutralize the acidity. To improve
the fertility of peaty land he recommended basic slag, commonly called "Thomas' Phosphate Powder,"!
300 to 400 pounds and 100 pounds
ot' muriate of potash per aire. Fish
guano was also a good fertilizer for
;uch land. Fish could be composted with sea weed and peat and
made what might be called a balance ration.
VV. H. Ladr.er recited his experiment with  fish  guano,   lime,  etc.,
ut claimed he could see no  differ-
nce in the   rop.   'He could see the
ifference however when he applied
the barn-yard manure.
Prof. Shutt then briefly explain-
e the pr nciples of sub-soiling.
T e sui-fa< e soil should not be
p.pwed down, but the subsoil
should be simplv loosened, not
brought to the surface.
H. D. Benson  said  this section
was adapted for the growth of
clover, it grew wild everywhere
where there was clay or sand. The
Delta soils had an average depth of
four feet and vegetable matter wai1
often found at a depth of 7 feet   -���A-     r
Mr. Cres'-wel! '.v.tn*-ed to know if
potash leached aw.iy, and was tolc].]
that it did not, that it was not  advisable to bury it or put  it on  too
Mr. J. R. Anderson said Mr. ?
Ladner admitted having received
good results from use of manure,
yet they had -seen large heaps of it
to-day that should have spread ou ^
the fields. Prof. Shutt agreed with
this and saiu it was doubtless the
potash in the manure which produced the extra crop.
In answer to a questtiou Mr. An-     *
derson said butter cup and velvet
grass could be eradicated by cultivation.    The chairman wanted to   fi
know if sorrel was natural to peat     .
Mr. Anderson cited the experience of the Rithet ranch which was
covered with sorrel when first
broken up, and by drainage and
cultivation the sourness was eliminated from the soil and the sorrel
disappeared. Peaty soils were improved by the application of barnyard manures on account of the
plant food contained therein being
immediately available.
Mr. Allison said he got good results from application of wood ashes
to stawberry plants.
Mr. Anderson gave an illustration of how to select good seed
from bad, and said that farmers
should be careful to examine seeds
before purchasing.
. Alex. Davie asked how to destroy
the Canadian thistle. He was tdld
to keep them cut as they cauuot
live without leaves.
After a hearty vote of thanks to
the speakers the meeting adjourned.

In the first opening of Oklahoma
to settlers in 1889, the editor of this
paper was among the many seekers
after fortune who made the big
face one fine day in April. During
his travelling about and afterwards
his camping upon his claim, he encountered much bad water, which,
together with the severe heat, gave
him a very severe diarrhcea 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 Diarrhcea Remedy as a last hope. A big dose was
given him while he was rolling
about on the ground in great agony,
and in a few minutes the dose was
repesited. The good effect of the
medicine was soon noticed and
within au hour the patient was
taking his first sound sleep for a
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

The Department of Agriculture,
Ottawa, has for some time been recommending the establishment
among Canadian dairy farmers of
co-operative testing associations,
somewhat similar to those which
have had such a marked effect
in increasing the milking capacity
and reducing the cost of production
in Danish dairy herds. Under the
direction ofthe Minister of Agricul
ture, an object lesson along that
line is now being given in the district about Cowvansville, Quebec,
with tbe Government cool curing
room as the centre where the testing is done and the records kept.
Arratigements bave been made
whereby 82 farmers in the vicinity
undertake to keep accurate records
of the daily milk yield of each cow
in their herds. Samples of both
morning and nights' milk are taken
three times a month and tested for
butter fat at the cool curing room.
The milk record sheets are collected monthly, and these are compared with the books of the cheese
factories to which the farmers send
milk, so that a fairly efficient check
on accuracy is provided. Some
1450 cows are concerned in this
Cowansvile cow census, which
shows that the large dairymen of
that district are alive to the importance of weeding out the unprofitable producers. |This testing .issoc-
cijttion is, as yet, merely in the
experimental stage, but if it works
out satifactorily, it will doubtless
lead to a considerable extension of
the movement.
