Dowered willl one ol the grout
natural havens of the present time,
North Vancouver divides with
Vancouver the world-harbor, oi
Hurrard Inlet Nature and the
interests of the Canadian state
have here largely predetermined
the lines of development, and have
.evidently imposed on the port ol
Nortli Vancouver the destiny of a
triple city. The main railroad
base as approved by the Dominion authorities is ioo feet wide
along the wharfage level of the
present town. To connect with
the ocean highway, here bordered
by miles ui harborage, the land
highways of the continent musl
converge upon the railway,
port, commercial emporium
distributing district, thetnselvei

Will, with some industries which
require wharfage, grow along the
shoreline, embankments and piers,
with sidings to the railway base,
projecting to deep water as do the
existing   wharves.    Closely hug-
even sought by several  transportation companies at  the present
time.    As   its   extent   would  accommodate a dozen railroads, with
adequate shipping liases, without
cramping olher enterprises, it has
renl   and   great   importance   to
Canada at large.   If a single railway company were to receive ,i
virtual monopoly or concession of
ihis entire  shoreline,   lhe  Pacific
commerce ol Canada on the whole
north   shore  ol   ils   best  harbor
would be limited to and by the
interests ol such single lianspoit.i-
tion company.  On the other hand,
were shipping facilities judiciously
accorded by the government to all
railway companies seeking a base
ul operations iu North Vancouver,
commerce would pour through the
port, the business ol the Dominion
would increase, and revenue rise-
in  a   way  lhat  could   never   be
realized     were     Burrard    Inlet
virtually made over to two railway
companies, one on the north, and
one on  the   south   shore,    lt   is

company sliould be opposed : on

Alex. Philip, clerk ul the municipal council, wrote stating that
the council had decided to give the

Mr. P. Larson suggested that an
appointment be made with the
council to get all the men and
teams to assist. He thought the
council would agree to this. " I
will give the use ol a team, scrapei
and driver," said Mr. Larson, who
ment should be extended to every j «as' '"'.""y applauded.
mmm mmm ■    President  McKenzie said   that
the municipal engineer should give
genuine transportation concern,
ainl special consideration shouli
be shown to the fust railroad emer
ging the landward margin of the ing a district. Hut even a
shipping quarter, the second, or
manufacturing town and mart, will
parallel the wharfage line, and
swallowing the adjacent villages ol
Moodyville and Mission to the east
and west, must extend its lumber,
iron and fishing industries in twu
wings over the tidal Hats and traffic
levels which dank the main basin
ol the harbor towards the First anc
Second narrows. Convincing evidence of this exists in the present
location of the  Moodyville mi
and the position selected for the
Vancouver, Westminster & Yukon
railway yards, The third or residential city will doubtless occupy,
as at present, the higher level's,
and should continue to spread
rapidly over the neighboring
As ipgards lhe luture importance
.of   North Vancouver as a   port,
continental railway should be pre*
veuled corralling, as has already
been done in one instance, an extent of shoreline which would tend
to exclude other railroads, and
thus prevent the natural growth
of national commerce. In other
words, it iii against the interests ol
Canada that one railroad should
get exclusive control ol the shore-
| line of a port, because such control
would give such one railroad exclusive access to the ocean and
consequent monopoly of the ocean
trade with the port in question.
Dn such grounds, it is held that a
great luture for North Vancouver
as a port depends on the wisdom
and fidelity with which the national
authorities deal with the asset
which the country at large has in
the shoreline of its best harbor on
the Pacific.
The Regatta.
In accordance with a resolution
________________    passed ai thi: annual general meet-
cording to its advocates,  it is J ing tlie  Ninth Vancouver Boating
.difficult to see how Vancouver can
ultimately hold its own as against
the northern side of Burrard Inlet,
lt is even held probable that the
.Century will see North Vancouver
lar out-distance Vancouver, both
.as port and transportation base.
The reasons (or this view are
slated as follows :
First: Vancouvei and North
Vancouver have about equal
lengths of frontage on the chief
•.basin ol Hurrard Inlet. Here,
however, tlie equality of natural
conditions ceases, and the preponderance of advantage is vastly
.on the side of North Vancouver.
Tributary to .Vancouver, and
west of the central harbor, there
are six miles of shoreline extending
to Point Grey, but this stretch is
.largely, if not altogether, unsuitable lor shipping by reason of its
shallows and comparative exposure. Ol the ten miles of shore
line between the east boundary ol
Vancouver and Port Moody,
several miles front on narrows
where the current is prohibitive of
wharfage slips, and almost the entire length is controlled by tin
.Canadian Pacific Railway Company; which practically closes the
,niore valuable parts to other railroads.
The Municipality of North Van
couver on the other hand, in addition lo the central harbor basin,
has between twenty and thirty
.miles of shoreline, alter deducting from which the shoals
and the frontage on the narrows, there remain possibly ten
miles ol valuable deep water
frontage, besides a number of
sheltered bays. This part of the
Pacific litdral is rm objective point
of value from a railroa.1 point ol
view, and is said to be coveted and

New Methods In an Art That I. Old,
A Pittsburg Romanoa.
One of llie musical Instruments
Whose popularity never seems to dlmlii
tab Is Ibe violin, nlliiH the llildlo. There
Is il story In Ibe effect thnt one of Uin
pioneer settlers of western Pennsylvania gave 1,500 acres of land lu exchange for n beautiful Instrument
made by Btelner, the nuceensor of the
renowned Btrndlvnrlus, nud Uie bind
thus given Is the site of Pittsburg.
Then there Is the story of the violin
maker In New York who bought up old
rafters to turn Into Instruments, some
of bis choicest prud'ictlous being carved out of the wood taken from St.
Matthew's, n downtown church razed
ubout half n century ago.
In Ihe counlry districts Uie Addict

ever, nnd In the schools of music the
Student Of the violin Is lu u fnlr wny

American orchestra, which today Is
largely mnde up of Europeans, In Huston George \V, Chndwlck, the well
known composer, bus Introduced thc
practice of using members of Un* big
Symphony Orchcetrn to sit alongside
the pupils composing the Conservatory
orchestra ami "speed up" the performances, All advanced pupils nre required
to attend the rehearsals regularly, and
the performances nre under the direction of Mr. Chndwlck himself. There
Is a guild denl of public spirit behind
this undertaking, for as the Symphony
Orchestra bas the support of a banker.

If Properly  Handled  It Will  Prove a;
Splendid Investment.
Every progressive dairyman should \
have a band separator. Vou cun then
give the calves fresh sweet skim milk, a
lt Is cipeusive to feed calves on whole |
milk, especially wheu you can sell the
butter for 213 cents per pound and sup-
lily lhc fat taken from the milk by oil-1
meal or oll cuke at a few cents per ]
From thc other side, the separator Is
certainly a splendid Investment its u
labor silver. It is also valuable ns a
means of getting all tbe butter fat from
llie milk. Get a good standard machine, but don't fiH n very small size
unless you have only a very few cows.
For ten to twelve cows we would certainly recommend a 450 to 050 pound
per hour separator.
Cleaning the Machine.
Wash the machine every time It Is
used. Don't bellevo the ageiil who
telle you Unit you can wnsh bis mii-
iliine by simply dipping the purls In
warm water. Any one who lias handled vessels In which milk has been
kept knows that that Is uot so, I'se n
brush, not n dish rag, to wash each
piece of the separator; then pour boiling hot water over the parts and allow
lo dry.
1 se plenty of oil on the bearings, and
thus greatly Increase the life of tho
machine, Fasten the separator securely to the floor, take three minutes
to speed it up. heat up the bowl wilh u
little lukewarm water before separating, tl -n flush out wlUl a little ih'tiii
water after the milk has run through
to get all tbe cream.—Professor Vi. ,).
Aroostook Dairying.
I always wash my cows' udders with
clean water and wipe them dry, milking with dry hands. We strain tho
milk through cheesecloth, fiililcd twiee,
.-imi use a separator. Wo like that lie-
cause It saves a lot of milk cans or
pans to care for, and, best of all, wo
inn feed tlio warm, sweet milk In the
calf, For ventilation In the stable I
depend upon n two inch bole in tho
wall with a shingle to close over It In
stormy weather. 1 feed through traps
iii front of the cows, and these nro
never very light, so tliey always have
fresh air in front of Uiem, I clean tho
stable twice a day regularly In winter,
:inil iii tho summer the stock ure in tho
pasture night and day.—V, T. Lundval,

The handling of milk tbe tlrst few
hours ofter it bus come from the COW
lias n great Influence on lis quality and
the commercial value of the products
made from It. The cure of milk seems
0 Simple mailer, hut better methods in
our dairies are of the greatest importance to the success and reputation of
American dairying.
Testing of Dairy Cowa.
Officially aiiilientieated testing a„* dairy cows is becoming more and more
the leading feature of Uio work of
breeders. These tests are regarded by
the public as the true Index of the
value and of tlio capacity of all breeds.
Practical dairymen are placing absolute rellanco upon them as an Invaluable nhl In tho selection of sires wltll
which certainly to improve the capacity and profitable production of their
Dairy Products In Demand.
The greatest profit is in selling milk
and cruam to customers, the next lu
bavin, annual customers who will take
eiUier cheese or butter as It Is made.
Then follows the selling of cream to
the creamery und, lasUy, butter to the
store trade as one can catch the market. There seems to be a constantly
nicreaslug demand for the products
of the dairy which keeps paeo with lhe
Increase of cows. There Is u bright
prospect ahead for ull who wish lo engage In tliis great branch of agriculture.—S. I-'. Emerson.
Where the Expense Comes In.
Profossor \V. ,1. Eraser of tho Illinois
College of Agriculture says, "ll Is what
the farmer does uot know about his
cows lhat hurts." If he knew how expensive It is to keep a poor cow, he
would not do It Twenty-five good
cows will earn more net lhan a hundred modern Icly good cows and more
Uian 1,000 poor cows. Tlie poor cows
Will nol pay Uielr way. In one case Uie
cows will keep the funnel": lu tbe oilier
the farmer will keep UlO cows.
The Milking Machine.
The Farmers Advocate aayai "We
did noi believe m the efficiency of the
milking machine until wo saw nne ut
work. Now Ihal wo have been shown
we cannot say too much in Its favor
Tl e .if" milking machines and mill.
Ing nui' bines, B0 be caret ul what you
buy when yuu nre approached by a
smooth tongued milking macblno salesman. Si far as wo know, there Is only
one ur two approved makes of milking
machines,   [letter go slow in the pur-
i II l a machine and be sure you
_"t a good 000."
Culling tha Herd.
It Is lhe constant ulm of progressive
dairymen to improve their herds, uud
Buch Improvement must depend largely
upon culling the linrd nnd getting rid
• if the iinproliuible animals,
Keep Out the Bacteria.
The most careful handling of milk
after it is once infected with bacteria
u ill not sullii'e lo make a good product
from It. The bncteriu musl not be allowed to gnin Ingress if clean, wholo*
some products are desired. Thorough
it ishlng wlUi boiling water, or, better,
live sienna, followed by rapid cooling
uud subsequent exposure to the direct
rays of Hi" sun, Is the only sanitary
way of handling the dairy's utensils.

Borne Valuable Points on Building Up 1
Dairy Herd.
The dual purpose cow does not exist

makes the dividing line all the morn

breeds. The farmer has not yet been
found who can produce 11 herd of cnt-
Ue that shall lead ln both dairy nnd

best dairy herds and make as much
money us we can.

suits him best, taking Into consideration, among other things, climate, food

Get a Good Sire.
Next purchase a pair or trio, and
with them lay the foundation of 11 pure
bred herd, If expense makes this Impracticable, purchase a registered sire
and get 11 call from a cow with good
record of production. Get the best
possible sire of the breed chosen, ns be
Is half the herd.
Tbe next slop In grading up a herd
Is to be sure not to Inbrccd. When
you have heifers old enough to breed,
purchase for ihem unother slro.
When Uu- third, fourth or fifth grade
has been reached, you will have 11 profitable herd, which, while It cannot be
registered, will show splendid results,
AnoUier step-do not breed nny heifer until she is nearly or quite two
years old. Breeding heifers too young
