Trial-The Jury Deliberated About One

the Prisoner's Acquittal.
TBtit, ot jambs liiranna.
The flnt sitting of the Supreme
Court waa opened In the Columbia
Hall, Oolden, on Tuesday morning be*
fore Hll HSnor Mr. Justice Drake.
The following Avert the Grand Jury:
Meson. W. G. Mitaliell-Innes (lore,

S. High, H. B. MoDennot, T. Itobson,

His Hone* tbeu.ehargsd the Grand
Jury, laying that thia was the first
session oT the Supreme Court that had
been held/ in Golden, ud be hoped
that before .fiither session it wonld
not be necessary to trouble Mr. MoNeish for ths os* of his hall and that
the courthouse would bs finished for
occupation. Hii fenor pointed out,
with reference tB the indictment that
would be laid before them by the
Crown, tbat it waa their duty to ascer
tain from tha witntsses whether there
waa auch a case aa would necessitate
tnrtber inquiry before a Petit Jury
Hia Honor then dirretad the Jury as
to the manner io which they ahould
proefced. He gave th. legal definition
of the charge el murder. He reviewed
the facta brought out at ths prelimin
ery hearing, and presumed that on the
faots they would have no diSoulty In
finding a true bill. If there were any
matters of -rwbllo Importance to whioh
tbs Grand Jury wished to draw atten
tion it wai tbsir privilege io do -r.,
when the representations made would
doubtless receive due consideration.
The Grand Jury then retired to con
alder the indictment and returned with
a true bill.
The Grand Jury matte the following
presentment: ���
.'-The Grand .Jury express thoir
satisfaction thut His Honor Judge
Drake ha. been called npon to preside
tot the first time at thie Court oi

that Hia Honor should, not lie enabled

House, whicli ia now in course of erection, but hope at the. future sittings of

Jatnss Hughes was then arraignel
cn the charge of the murder ol Alexander Macaulay at Swift Current io
June last and pleaded riot guilty by
his counsel Thos. O'Brien. Deputy
Attorney.General McLean coudwoted
Ihe prosecution.

containing the map recently published
ot tbe Tito Jaune distriot and by
means of it had the wltneu explain to
the Jury -tltt route bo travelled from
Edmonton to Tete Jsunt Cache. Ths
evident! ot this witness wat ��� repeti
tion of that given at the preliminary
trial   Witness was crose-exainintd.
J. W. Evans also gavt similar evl*
dinct Iff (hat already puHlthed.
J. frtot wns tbt next witness tnd
���won lhat aoous&l had admitted to
him that he was responsiWi fer Mac-
������Ity', condition.   Counsel to* dtftiue
objeoted to the evidence on the ground
that witness was a police officer, and
before it WAafbceived thoCrown should
pro��e It waa given voluntarily. Mr.
McLean said he was not, but was
merely In the same position aa anv
oi her witness ol the Crown. His Honor
disallowed the objection. Mr. O'Brien
asked that a case be reserved on tbis
point. His Honor said he could only
do eo where he hnd any doubt. In this
case hs hnd nono, and se could not
reserve Ihe case, but he would note the
point. Witness then reeumed hia
evidence tnd was severely cross-
examined by Mr O'Brien-.
Mrs. Macaulay waa called, Venerable
Archdeacon McKay acting interpreter.
In addition to the evidence formerly
given Mrs. Macaulay referred to a
quarrel between her husband and the
prisoner over the straying of tbs
horses. They did not epeak to one
another for several days, but afterwards became friendly and weut trap-
Ding together. Alter catching two
more lote of beaver her husband told
her lo get the skins ready as soon as
possible, so tbat tbey could return to
Henry House the prisoner to bt left at
Swift Current. Tho day before they
were to leave they had a quarrel over
a pack saddle. Ma'ctuita***- understood
the prisoner had mads bim a present
of the saddle aud priaoner denied that
Macaulay had previously said he intended giving prisoner two beaver
skins for it. Prisoner said to hsr
husband, '-Aleo, I'll kill you."* Mao
aulay replied, *' Well, Jim, kill tqe at
once." Before they were packing up
prisoner asked witness for his beaver
���kins. Witness snid sho knew nothing
about them. When they were pack
ing up prisoner went to her husband
tad -asked liira Ior the two beaver
skins, Macaulay replied. '��� What beaver skins? Did you kill thiin?" Tbe
account of tbe shooting was similar to
tnet already given. Witness recognized the hat produced as that her
buslinml wore, and the hole in the but
was where tlle bullet passed through
it. Witness was aKdwn the bloodstained shire which hor husband ,w.ore
at the timo of the shooting.and broke
down foi- a time on seeing it*. '. Witness
wss cross.examined at som-i lcni;lh by
Mr, O'Brien and stated her husband
Imd ouo louver trap und two small
traps. Did not see any striking when
the quairel took placo. The prisoner
helped lier after lho first two days and
got ihe wood and water for her,. The
day they quarrelled ber husband returned the pack saddle to tlle prisoner.
Th's closed tho case for the Crown.
Mr. O'Brien, in oponing tho case for
the Defence, explaiuod bis evidence
and hoped to show a cuse of
self-defence and justifiable houiioltle.
Prisoner wns then called anil Soldi ���
i wen: to Athabnson laat winter, and
previous to that was at Arkrnaas City.
I have a w'fe and five children, the
youngest being three year. old. Met
Alex. Miicauliiy ut Buffalo Prairie, a
day'a drive nortn of Henry House,
early last winter. Just beforo going
to the Cache I met him at Mr. Swift's
and arranged with bim to go in partners trapping. I wus to furnish ons
and be two parts of supplies for hia
wife nml children, and wo would
divide. I did not aim to try Macaul-
uy's temper, because I wss afraid of
him on account of hia a.tions towards
his wife, wboin.be used to whip. Wa
-aught 14 beaver and Itrusted to him
to lake tbem from tbe traps. I was
entitled to soreu of tbe skins, Had
trouble with Macaulay at Swift Current the dny before the shooting. It
.routs about a pack saddle. He wanted
to take tbe straps from my saddle and
put thein on his. 1 objected to him
spoiling my saddle and he said be
i bought I gave it to him. He cursed
me and I wont out when ke chased me
with a knife. Mrs. Macaulay held
him bauk. Ho said he would kill me
before he left. I loaded my Run and
laid it in my tent nml staid awake a1!
night watching him. Next morning
I wss fixing aeopper can when I heard
a shot and juinpod for my gun. Mao
aulay wa. coming towards me and 1
shouted at him to halt. He had his
knife, and I thought lis had his gun.
He didn't hull, nnd he fell ou his
knees in willow hushes snd I pulled
trigger. I oould not tell he waa
wouuded till I got out of lhe bushes.
I rushed lo get his gun and fouud it
wheue the to|*uo had been. Saw him
beckoning and went over, wben he
shook bands with me and wanted me
to help bim. Helped hi.n lo the tepos
and fixed the Mankets- Got water to
wash the wounds and helped take care
of hiin. Mrs. Msoaulay's stnttinant
about deceased saddling a horse when
I fired the shot is uot true. Did not
tell Prioe Macaulay wus going to steal
my provisions. If I bad uot killed.
Macaulay he would have killed me
Macaulay had a bad disposition. 1
could not hufe escaped from him.
Stayed with Maoauisy ro attend to
him every night exoept one, when be
struck bit wife, till Noyes cams.
Cross-examined hy Mr. McLean���
Macaulay wat running. Saw something in hit head wben I fired.
Could not Ml whether it Was
a knife or a gun, It was daylight tnd he wat from 25 to Iff feet
away. He had uot tht gun in his
hand.   Don't know  who- discharged
the sbot I heard. The gtSS tVith *hfcli
I fired was no account. I was going
there to the gold mine. This is the
first time I told this story, though I
have been twice before the Court.
Its-examined hy Mr. O'Brien-M.v
gun.is a magasine gun but will hold
only one cartridge. Macaulay examined my gun last winter and said it
was no good.
Allan Hamilton was called to give
evidence as to the character of Macaulay. but Mr. McLean severely taxed
the witness as to bis own reputation.
F. Holliday was the last witness
and said he had heald by hearsay that
thai Macaulay had a bad reputation.
In answer to Mr. McLean, witness
said he personally knsw nothing of
Dr. Taylor, on beiug called upsn
by Mr. O.Brien, said he did net
think Macaulay could speak in view of
the injory done to the tongue and
lower jaw, but in reply to Mr. McLean
admitted that Ke might use gutteral
The Court then adjourned till 10 a.
in. Wednesday, the Jury being locked
up meantime,
Mr. O'Brien, Counssl for the prisoner, commenced his. address to ths
Jury at 10 o'clock WsdhCSday morning and closed about noon. Space does
not permit of it being given at length
but from start to finish hs held the
attention of Judge nnd J*iry and made
one of the moat telling speeches that
has ever been delivered in North East
Kootenay. He dwelt at length upon
the evidence adduced on behalf of the
Crown and the prisoner, and aeked
that tha verdict be given not in accordance.with the swern evide co, but only
such AS wa, believed by the Jury, and
that iu regard to the value of testimony tbe probabilities aa welt as what
is what is .worn to should he considered. From ths evidence adduced
he argued no motive whatsoever had
been shown by tbe Crown Tor the
committal of one of the most serious
crimes that could bl charged to any
man. Dwelling upon the dumission by
thi "Prosecution that Macaulay beckoned the prisoner to approach Immediately after the shooting took place and
thtn shook him by tbe hand, he contended, wonld not have been the act of
a missionary; nor yet would it be an
act that a cold-blooded 'nurdorer would
likely pursue after shooting hie victim.
���This act in Itsell was surely vM-jr
strong evidence for the defence in support of their plea of justification. Ha
then ut great length explained clearly
aud eloquently tho position of the two
men���the deceased and the prisoner ���
on the day of the shooting. The
prisoner, tho owner nf a complete outfit, en route to tlm Yukon Gold fields,
whilst the deceased hsd practically
nothing, and contended that of the
two men the deceased was the only one
who Would have benefited by tbe committal of a crima of so serious a character.
He then marshulled the evidence for
and against and in untnistnkablt-t language coutended that the only person
who claim-it! to be an eye witmiss (Mrs
Macaulay) must surely be mistaken, as
he course which the bullet wiis pi-ovsii
to have taken from the doctor's testimony bere out the prisoner's story
absolutely. If Mrs. Macaulay was
mistaken on thi. important point lie
considered the duty of the Jury was
lo reject her testimony alto^etiie**-.
Referring to theeviddnce of Noyes
end Price, lie asked the Jury to roject
it in its entirely, so fur ns it mi-tlit be
evidence against the prisoner, claiming
that men who would swear ss they
hnd that Macaulay could* speak after
this shootiu-*- took place w.i-e, to say
tht least, not credible witnesses He
claimed no man  could ever utter a
ord whose tongue and lower jaw
were so badly injured, as was shown
by the doctor's evidence.
Mr. O'Brien then closed his address
in a most forciblo and touching manner, and had the Jury then retired it
is safe io predict a verdict of not guilty
would have been delivered without
much deliberation.
Mr. R. A. McLean, Deputy Attorney
General rbr tbfl province, followed aud
complimented Counsel for the Defence
on hie eloquont and able appeal ou
behalf of the prisoner. He felt satis-
lied no Counsel could have dono moro.
He contonded tho Prosecution had
proven the charge and continued his
iddrsas for upwards of on hour.
His Lordship charged the Jurv In a
strong and forcible manner, and from
his tenor desired the Jury to return a
verdiot of guilty.
The Jury retired and after aboir. an
hour's deliberation returned a verdict
of uot guilty. The prisoner was then
discharged, and Mr.- O'Brien was
cheered by the erowd on the successful manner in which he had couductcd
tbe case for tho Defence,

London, Oot. 37.��� Tbe official announcement of  the joining  ot Gen.
White ami Gen, Yale 1ms corneas a
great relief, and all the more in view
of tbe fact that hit r dispatches have
shown that only tbe incapacity of the
intelligence department of the Boers
saved Geu. Vole's column from what
might have been a great disaster.
lt seems that on Friday Dundee was
foil of alarms. Heavy firing was heard
at 1 o'clock uud again at 4. A severe
tbonder storm food after stopped the
Boer caiiuouadc. Saturday parsed iu
the same i.iixious manner, iu momentary expectation of uu attack. Tbe
British dually evacuated, taking nil
that they could but leaving plenty behind for the Boers in loot. The appointments of the Boor hospital at
Dundee are described as very inadequate aud primitive. Thn Biers them
Belves, iu the absence of a unrsiug j*tuif,
got only scant attention.
Geu. Vale's column hud a very ix-
hanntiug inarch, chiefly, it is believed,
by night. Tho reason for a i igbtmarcli
is not given, but it was probably a fear
of Boer surprises. The very heavy
rains and mist hampered the maroh,
bnt were perhaps tbo means of saving
Gen. Yule from molestation. It took
the column twenty-four  hoars to oover

Yule's force arrived today and adding
tbat he understood they were all alive,
but prisoners.
A belated dispatch sent from Glenooe
camp on Ibe uight of the battle iu that
vii inlty admits that few Boers, dead or
wounded, were found on the field, and
explains this by saying tbat the Beers,
in accordance witb tbeir custom, buried
tbeir dead and carried off their wonnded
immediately after they fell, those left
representing only tho casualties dnring
the last moments of firing.
The ouly news this morning consists
of more detailed accounts of the battles
already reported. A correspondent who
visited the hospital at Ladysmlth,
where the Boers' wouuded at Elands-
loagte are being tended, reports that
Geu. Jun Kook, wbo was badly wonuded in the thigh and shoulder, said thai
the advance of the patriots under Fnar,
withont guns, was simply with the object of cutting the railway, and that
this body was subsequently reinforced
withont Gen. Joubert's orders.
Gol. Sobiel, of the German corps.uml
Commandant Pretortus were both
severely wounded. Many prominent
Boers are uot yet accounted for. Philip
Kook says the Boers suffered most from
the "soldiers in little clothes, half men
and half women." meaning the Gordon
Highlanders, and in the charge of the
Fifth Lancers.

The report of heavy losses sent from
Kletfontein came as an unpleasant surprise, as Gen. White's telegram to the
war oflice yesterday gave the impression that then was merely a brush.
The Dailly Mail has tbe following
from Pietermaritsbnrg, Natal, dated
Oot. 23 - "Ihe prooamation of martial
law throughout Natal lias given great
satisfaction. Among the Boer prison-
en at Ladysmlth are De Witt Hamer,
member of tbe road, for Barberton, and
Dr, Van Leggel, publio prosecutor at
Heidelberg, Among the killed waa
Mr. De Jong, secretary of Transvaal
educational department. It is now expected that General Jan Kook, the
Boor commander, will recover. General White gave him the option of being taken to Pretoria or remaining at
Ladysmitn and he chose the latter.
The heavy losses of the Kings Rifles at
Dundee seem to have been dne to the
blaok belts worn over the khaki, whioh
afforded an excellent target."
With unconscious humor, a Oape
Town correspondent telegraphed yesterday: "The censorship, whioh is always
a delicate matter, is working smoothly,
and withont a hitch" This exactly hits
the state of affaire today. An ominous
veil is still drawn over the movements
of General Sir George White aud General Yule Beyond tbe belated Lady-
smith dispatch concerning the Elands
laagte fight, still filtering in, the British publio is left in oomplete darkness,
and to conjecture over "cooked" war
office dispatches. Tbe ufllclals of the
war office last evening said that very
few dispatches have arrived, and tbat
nothing further was to be expected
until morning. Since it is practically
certain that Gen. Yule has now
effected a conjunction with Gen. White
���although tbis was not brought about
Tuesday night, as announced by the
Daily Mail���but aome time on Wednesday, and aa both are now in a position
of safety conjecture concerns itself

by the thanadar and were Invited by
him to join tbe circle of tbe greal
round his are on the evening of their

dismal alienee was only accented by the
distant bowl of a lonely jackal. Tbe
sheet lightning flickered Utfully over
the foothills, mocking tbe gasping Te*
ral with Its faint promise of a coming cbauge.
Tlio conversation round the Are flagged, and the hookah passed languidly
from hand to hand. Those present
would bavo retired to sleep had sleep
been possible, but as tbat was a consummation not easily attained at this
leosou of tlio year they preferred their
present miseries to those tbnt co.se In
Ibe wakeful uight watches when tbe
Toral Is othlrst. Ham De-en's arrival
was a nightly boon to those wbo wore
wont to assemble round the tbnna-
dor's Ore. There was alwaya the possibility ot bis having news, and, besides,* men seemed to acquire fresh
vitality Horn contact witb bis rigorous
personality. The strangers were especially grateful for his arrival, and
when he bad taken bis usual place beside the Ore tbe hookah waa at once
passed to blni.

Hint of danger that might be encountered In the jungle having, thus
been given, one of the strangers was
moved to ask concerning tbe lame
litter of Iliildwiinl, part of whose
biography they had beard from Ram
Deen at Lai Koonli on the previous
"Conch wan jl, wast thou not afraid
to carry the mall after the slaying of
thy hostler, Nandba?"
"Those wbo carry the queen's mall
may not stop for fear. Nevertheless
fear rode with me a day and a night
after the death of Nnndha."
"It is a great telling," said tbe little
carrier, nodding nt tbe wayfarers,
while Ram Deen "drank tobacco."
When Ram Deen bad passed the
hookah to his neighbor, be went on:!
"Brothers, on the day that Nnndha
was carried off by the tiger I sent
word to the postmaster of Nalul Tai
concerning tbe killing, gnd the outgoing mall brought me word that the
sircar (government) would send me
help. Ye kuow that a tiger kills not
two days In succession. So I had no
fear when I traversed the road to and
from Lai Kooah till the second day
after the slaying of Nandha. Ere I
started on that morning tbo munshl
tola mo to drive to the dak bungalow
for a sahib who bad been sent to slay
the sliiyer of men. Brothers, when I
went to tho dak bungalow tbere came
forth to me a man chlld-n Farlngi-
wliose chin was aa smooth at the palm

"I would have laughed, but that I
thought of the tiger that I knew would
be waiting for ut, and, taking pity on
bim, I mid: The jungle hereabouts Is
full of wild fowl, aahlb, and 'twere
pity, wben shikar la ao plentiful, yon
ahould waste this morning looking for
a budniasb tiger who will not come
forth for two days aa yet.' He answer
ed me nover a word, bnt went into the
dak bungalow for something be had
forgotten, and while be was gone his
butler spake to me, snylug: 'Coach
won. moke no mistake; tby life depends upon thy doing the sahib's bidding. He Is a very Rustum, aud he
kuoweth not fear, for all he Is so
young.' 'He It a man after my own

temperament. It can be nothing more;
lt Is nothing less, and tbe sooner she
broadens her mind and deepens her heart
the sooner she will live happily. Bnt If
she goes around smiling like a Cheshire
cat and putting in her valuable time trying to be a benediction while her husband and children are worrying through
life on dried meats and baker's bread

live happily any place, In a home or out
of it, requires a constant drain upon one's
common sense, and If a young woman
taking up her trade as a horae builder expects to become a success by reading the
"helpful bints to young wives" she is
making a mistake. She would spend ber
time better reading the advertisements
in the back of tbe magazine, finding important but not soul stirring facts about
soaps, baking powder, linen, silver, stove
and floor polishes and canned goods, for
these things are indeed of the earth

Although mauy jewelers advertise
"something new in rings," the fact remains that they are but slight variations
of tbe styles In vogue at the time Moves
piloted the children of Israel out ot the
bondage of Egypt. Rings arc alluded to
In the Bible In the books of Genesis and
Exodus. They have been found among
the relics of prehistoric races, tbe stone
age, the bronze age and the age of the
mound buitders. Herodotus mentions
that the Babylonians wore them, and
from Asia they probably were Introduced
Into Greece.
The rings worn In early times were not
purely ornamental, but had their significance as signet rings. A king's messenger delivering a message and exhibiting
the king's signet as authority was obeyed
implicitly. The Romans had a marriage
ring of Iron witb a jewel of adamant, signifying eternity and constancy. History
mentions a magic ring possessed by King
Solomon, of which the Jews and Mohammedans havt abundant traditions. It
was by means of tbis ring as n talisman
of wisdom and power that Solomon wns
enabled to perform those wonderful acts
and accomplish those vast enterprises
that have made his name so celebrated
as the wisest monarch of the earth. The
later Romans wore a profusion of rings,
and the more effeminate had rings for
summer and winter

Teachers' Employment Onreaa,
"In several of our large cities there art
established teachers' agencies, which are
really professional 'intelligence offices/ In
them are kept the nnmes of all thoBe who
havt' made applications for positions,
with Information and references concern-
lug them, these items being at the service of nny one desirous of obtaining a
teacher," says The Ladies' Hume Journal. "The rundldnte pays to the agency
about $2 for the privilege of having ber
name registered and about 5 per cent of
her salary for one or two years after securing a position. The agency is In correspondence with schools and teachers all
over the country, and in tbis way a large
number of positions ore obtained."
OrlolB of tho Pan.
The use of the fan originated in China
and sprang from the following Incident!
A royal princess, very beautiful, was assisting at the feast of lanterns, her face
covered with a mask, as usual. The excessive heat compelled her to remove It,
and In order to guard ber features from
the common gait she moved It quickly
to and fro In front of her face, thus
simultaneously biding her charms and
cooling her brow. The idea was at once
adopted throughout tho kingdom. Catherine de' Medici carried the first fan from
Italy ever seen in France, and In the
time of Louis XIV tho fan covered with
jewels was worth a small fortune.
Bath For tho Hair.
Light hair should be washed often ami
dried in the suu. A tnblcspoouful of
household nminonln added to each basin
of water used In washing assists materially In keeping It light, Dark hair
ahould be dried In the shade, or it will
fade In streaks. But If tho dark haired
girl wishes to lighten her tresses without
��� blench she can accomplish something
In tbat direction by adding borax to the
water and, after drying the hair lu tho
shade, giving It a "sun bntb" as often
as practicable. During the sun bath Ihe
hoir should be spread and shaken out
constantly, that the rnys may reach all
tht roots alike.

A hundred years ago titers was a

demanded that tbe tea should be tnsted

Interview With lt. A. LUter, Who Has
Just lleturn-rri From a Tour of Inspection���He Compares the Dairy Industry
of Denmark and Manitoba���Scarcity of
Hog* In Manitoba,
K. A. Lister, president of R. A,
Lilster & Co., limited, manufacturers of
cream separators nnd other dairy machinery whose Winnipeg branoh bas
since its inception tbree years apo been
under tbe able management of Wm
Scott bas jnst oompletttl hie annnal
tour of inspection and returns to England this week. Being requested to
give bis opinion on tbe dairy industry
iu Manitoba ho said: "Until tbe farmers go in more for milk nnd stook raising the country will never be on a snre
and certain road to prosperity. This
continuous wheat raising is like an
unthrifty man wbo lives on bis capital
instead of bis interest, and if be lives
loug enough the poor houen alone
awaits hint. Take tbe farmers through
out the world and you will Aud tbe
man wbo milks rows in addition to
otber brunches of his buslnt-ss is the
best off; ho linn tbe best home, the
cheapest and best table, und ibo most
ready money. In fact, he has not all
his eggs in ono ba kot. Ibis is specially important in Manitoba, whero the
wheat crop fans beeu uud will be sub-
jeot to certain climatic risks and where
tbe borne demand for tbe product or a
dairy farm is increasing both io tbis
province uud British Columbia. Milk,
cream, butter, clte-dse, pork, calves, are
all In uctivo demand.
"When I compare this province aud
Denmark, both v ith long and severe
winters, I am struck with the scant
provision for keepin stock in the winter. In Denmark the cow stables are
long, cheaply constructed, yet warm
buildings with straw thatch roofs adjoining tbe farm honse at one t nd. The
door from the house does not open ou
the cows, bnt into an intermediate
room used for sorting all things
required. The cows are in two rows
baoa to back, with sufficient room for
oleaning ont and sufficient room in
front of the mangers ior feadlug from
a barrow or trolley oar. The ventil.i-
tion la Irom the apex of tbe roof and
ihe temperature kept at abont 65 degrees Fareulioit. Tbe milkers have
not to go oat in tbe oold on a winter
morning. It is a general practice to
put all milk oows iu tbe stable from
October 30 to May 20. The Danish
dairy farmer is. as a rule, fairly well
off, and lives well; they mostly own
their own farms. Hand skimming or
deep setting is now unknown, the
cream separator is universal; (heir batter is tbe fluest lu Ibe world, aud commands tbo best price lu England. Tbey
also feed a very largo nnmber of bogs
on (heir separator milk, barley and
oorn���tbe latter they Import.
"I think tbe scarcity of bogs in this
provinoe Is a matter that cannot be too
forcibly urged on tbe farmers, although
flue pork und bacon oan only be obtained where skim milk ia available to
mix with barley, oorn or damaged
wheat. Many of these things, I am
aware, bave been told before���bnt old
truths will do with repeating.
"My Arm started a creamery at
Brandon this year aud made 69,000
pounds of butter; the farmers bave been
paid In cash for their cream every
month. For November we shall pay
tbem 10 cents per pound. We purchased the old court honse at Morris,
equipped it as a creamery, and pnt a
gasoline launch ou tho river to oolleot
oream from the river side farms, This
we have done with one object only, via.,
to establish tho business on a sound
basis for tho cream gathering system,
and provide the farmers with a ready
cash market for thoir cream. I am glad
to hear irom the patrons I bave met that
our efforts even this first year hue been
suooessful and mnch appreciated
"At tbe pri s nt moment Manitoba
Is not taking full advantage of her
great opportunities for supplying tbe
western market with choioe dairy products The ready demand for fine fresh
butter, and the satisfactory prioes suoh
an article commands ahould be an in-
osntivo to farmers to inorase their
herds, to develop the production of
milk tho year round, nnd to provide all
the facilities for making butter of first
quality, and in quantity oommansnrate
with the requirement! of tht marital"

At the East end ol the Parridice

foot At a point 61 feet in from the

waa taken which gave 14.80 in gold,
II.S o<��. eilver, and 8.8 per cent lead.
Further on the tunnel entered blaok
