ASSIST FARMERS' INSTITUTE
EniTOR  DBLTA T.MBS:
Sir ��� Delta Municipality has a
Farmers' Institute which a few
take an interest in but is not generally appreciated by the majority
of the farmer's. Could this not be
remedied in some measure by the
establishment of a mutual improvement society in connection with and
form a part of the Farmers' Institute? The older residents still remember, with pleasure the Delta
Mutual Improvement Society which
existed here some years ago when
all joined hands to get up entertainments, debates, etc., and, for variety, an occasional social dance
would be held at the close of the
entertainment. The Institute would
be helped out financially as well as
thi membership would be increased
and the fee of 50c. for membership
is duplicated by the government.
Thanking *>ou, Mr.  Editor,  lor
space,
E. L. KIRKLAND.

-the ist day of June the Creamery
be run on ihe cream gathering
principal.
The following .amendment was
���then moved by J. Gilchrist, *econd-
ed by N. Mitahell, that the present
���system be continued until the present separators, are worn out
Speaking in favor of the motion,
H. D. Benson said, after nine years
experience he -twas of the opinion
xhat the cream gathering system
wauld prove more beneficial to all
.interested.
J. B. Burr,, seeking information,
.���asked whether the new method
���would pay. Would it pay to make
the change-now.
A deR. Taylor, speaking from
.experience, said it certainly would.
Individual separators were money
savers in that the skim milk was1
much more suitable for stock when
fed fresh, than a few days old. Another advantage was that the farmer did not have to wait around for
:the delivery wagon before he fed
'his stock, but could go right ahead
with his wink. Don't get a small
���separator, for the difference in cost
is more than made up by convenience.
John Ellis said individual separators were a great improvement.
By separating the milk, night and
morning, on the farm, the farmer
.could make more* money of their
calves and pigs with less trouble. It
would not take up much time separating night and morning. He
would not go back to the old system.
R. C. Abbott, asked which method
he preferred, said he could make
good butter either way if proper
'care were taken with tbe milk.
Seme spoil the milk by mixing
warm and cold milk together. Milk
two and three days old gave much
trouble to the butter maker, and
no satisfaction.
In answer to a question, Mr. Abbott said every other day would do
to collect the cream except in very
hot weather.
��������� A. D. Paterson wished to know
the difference of cost of making
butter from milk and from cream.
R. C.  Abbott said the cost in
. fuel would be less as well as nearly
every other expense.    In Ontario
it cost  3c per lb.    He thought sc
1 or 6c per lb. and the Creamery Co.
gather the cream.
A. deR. Taylor thooght cream
gathering would be a great improvement. He said that his milk, sep-
, arated at home gave from 1 to 2
, per cent, higher test than when
separated at the Creamery. He did
not mean to say that he did not get
a tair test at the creamery, but that
milk separated immediately after
milking would give that much
higher test than if allowed to stand,
���say, 12 hours, and mixing the
morning and evening millc together.
Alex. Davie said he was using a
separator, and that if that oue were
to break he would get another right
away.
R. C. Abbott thought the change
rould improve the quality of the
(butter and increase the output about
one-half.
W. R. Ellis thought the directors had not treated him just right
by refusing to take his cream when
he first put in a separator, and did
not feel like leaving the Westminster Creamery now unless he could
see that be bad something to gain
by so doing.
T. E. Ladner said that if the
Delta Creamery was to be made a
success, everyone must pull together, let by-gones be by-gones
and be patriotic enough to throw
all their influence toward making a
success of our home industry.
After hearing so much testimony
in favor of cream gathering, and a
canvass having been taken to see
whal    support   the   n$w   system
might expect the amendment was
withdraws.
W. iH. Ladner said the butter-
maker could not make good butter
unless tht cream was taken proper
care oC It did not do to leave the
mil'. sear the cow's byre aU night
The .original motion was then
put ��md carried.
Moved by J. Giltnhrist, seconded,
by A. deR. Taylor, .that the collection <pf the cream be left in tbe!
hands of the board of directors to
make such arrangements as they;
see fit.    Carried.
The election of directors was
then entered upon, when H. J.
Kirkland nominated a list, all except two of whom were elected.
The following being elected' H. D.
Benson, A. deR, Taylor; J. B
Bukir, W. Pybus, T. E. Ladner
The president and secretary are appointed by the directorate.
N. Mitchell moved, seconded by
T. & Ladner, that F. W. Harris be
appointed auditor for the ensuing
year.
J, B. Burr movedL, seconded by
N. Mitchell, $75 was voted to H.
N. Rich in remuneration for his
energetic services.
A rote of thanks was then passed to the board of directors aad the
meeting adjourned.
TENDENCY OF THE TIMES.
At a meeting of the directors,
held after the above meeting, J. B.
Burr was appointed president and

The tendency of medical science is
toward preventive measures.. The
best thooght of the world is being
given to the subject. It is easier and
better to prevent than to ci��re. It
has been fully demonstrated that
pneumonia, one of the most dangerous diseases that medical men %ave to
contend wiith, can be prevented by the
use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Pneumonia always results from'a cold
or from a�� attack of influenza (grip),
and it has 1>en observed that this remedy counteracts any tendency of these
diseases -toward pneumonia. This has
"been futlly proven in many the��_ands
of cases in which the remedy has been
used during the great prevalence of
colds and ��rip in recent years, and
can be relied upon with implicit confidence. Pneumonia often results
from a slight cold when no danger is
apprehended until it is suddenly discovered that there is fever and difficulty in breathing and pains in the
chest, (then it is announced that the
patient "hat pneumonia. Be on the
safe wde and take Chamberlain's
Cough R.medy as soon as the cold is
contracted. It always cures. For
