OF SOME IfflPORTANve.
It has been very amusing to watch the
Canadian press gradually awakening to
the fact that those British newspaper
men wbo are now travelling through tbe
country are really of some importance
after all. Especially wben one remembers tbe extraordinary exertions made
to meet and entertain several parties of
journalists from remote quarters of this
continent, who were supposed to be
influential representatives of tbe fourth
estate, and whose ''write-ups" were to
transform this portion cf Canada from
wilderness Into populous country.
It does not seem to have dawned upon
the average Canadian Journalistic intel-,
leet until quite lately tbat thia party of
British newspapermen is far and away
tbe most important and most influential
body that ever came from anywhere to
have a took at this country. But that is
the fact. Those are trained men from
the headquarters of tbe world's journal'
Ism, which, be it known unto aome of
onr North Americans, is not situated in
New York or Ladyemith, but In London,
Kngland, and in the great provincial
eities of the United Kingdom. K-- eminently capable of proof Is Mils asaertloo
that no oue wbo has the slightest acquaintance with both sides of the question would doubt it for a moment,
The Vancouver Province last year
distinguished itself by pn-.lii hing as an
editorial an article on the >--.nparalive
merit! of tbe British ami the American
newspaperman, very much to the dis*
advantage of the "old country" man.
The writer uf tbat article had never been
nearer the "old country" I Im 11 three
thousand miles, hence, perhaps his infallibility in discoursing on the subject.
It was amazing to see the Cmadian
Printer of Toronto copy that uiupid and
Ill-informed article and with apparent
approval, It contained the well-worn
asyth about the British newsp-t-pera being slow and prosy. There uever was
an A oner loan-trained newspaperman
that ever joined the stuff of a British
newspaper either to earn bis living ur as
an experiment who did not have that
foolish notion banged ont of blm in less
than six weeks. These are facts submitted after careful personal inspection.
Hence, it is amusing to see Canada
gradually realising the fact that those
Britishers are men wbo can probably dn
Canada more luting good than all the
Slang Is the refuge of the dull-witted,
the ignorant and the careless. No intelligent, educated or self*respecting person will stoop to use the vile and generally stupid inventions which supplant In
ao much of tbe current talk the elegant,
strong and graphic words of pure English.
Most slang haa Its origin Ih the gutter
and in the mouths of drunkards and
loafere. A common mistake is to confound dialect with slang; some dialects
are classic and more ancient than what
is now termed the classic English; as for
example the Doric speech of Scotland,
and tbe quaint patois of Weesex as
found in Thomas Hardy's books,
Tbe dialects of Lancashire, Yorkshire,
Durham and North urn bria are too evidently but inflections of the Scottish
Dorie, the only true remnant of the
Anglo-Saxon tongue to be found in the
British Islands; as the Lowland Scots
are the only true English, being purer-
blooded Anglo-Saxons than the Inhabitants of England. Many Scots words
are pure Anglo-Saxon, as anyone can
tell wbo has read Skeat and tbe other
Authorities on Anglo-Saxon.
Whv there should he sny necessity for
anyone to befoul the mouth .with the
barbarous inventions nf persons beneath
contempt, when one has such an armoury as the King's English Is a rave-
tery, and a miracle of perversity. There
may be something In tbe remark of the
Englishman who said that "In America
allclaesee spoke much the same dialect,
the outcast of the purlieus and tbe
millionaire In his office; tbe drayman
and the college man, all use the same
kind of language with the same kind of
accent."
In England it is very different. The
man who affects slang Is cot to be f >und
occupying positiousof dignity or re»po**<
nihility; not that his use of slang wuuld j
prevent him from winning such  p si-
there manage to slough off the foul
habit when they reach the higher plane,
and talk like rational beings and not in
the argot of the Blums or tbe barrack
room.
Let ns use plain English, the moat
forcible, sensible, direct am) simple
language ever Invented, aud leave slang
to the vulgar, tbe intoxicated, t ho worl It-
lees and the persons without taste, who
require expletives more closely allied to
the inarticulate sounds emitted hy animals than to (he speech of civilized
human beings.

Mr Ralph Smith, M.P., did not leave
the old country until he had satisfied
himself by peisoiml inapt dion that
King Eddie's crown carried the union
label.
Nanaimo's newap-ipera have not hi
overwork their reporters and ediioia at
present. The dear public is on ita ear
(slang, we admit) just now, and is using
up columns of valuable space lo express
Its valuable opinions. Ladysmith's public "writes to the "papers" once in a blue
moon.
Just possible thoee proposed transit ri
of licenses from Extension nml AN-xmi
dria will not be granted. Anyhow the
commissioners ought not to tranaaui
Ladysmith business in Nanaimo, hut
bring the whole affair down here, ao ns
to give Ladysmith people a chance to
bear the arguments.
What success Mr. Smith Curtia had
with Messrs, Hawthorn'liwaile and
Ralph Smith at Nanaimo lait Wednesday, time will tell. Mr, Cui'tis'e mission
was pacificatory and conjunctive, bin
whether tbe bland oil, which we ahs.ll
call Smith, will mix with the stormy
water, which we shall call Hawthorn*

of thu directions for ship) log turkeys
seem of general application. Among
the principnl points are the following:
Plucked turkeya tiro regarded ns
more salable thnn tihpliickod. Fast,
the birds for twont.v-fi.iir hours to
empty the crop nml Intoattnos. Tho
fermentation ot food tn tho crops
nnd intestines will wholly spoil ihu
birds. Qivo a small qmuitily of water Juat before killing. Kill hy wringing tho neck and not by kufilng or
sticking.
One dealer soys the easiest nnd best
mode of killing Is hy the dislocation
ol tho neck. This umntiur of killing ls
generally adopted hy the English
and continental poulterers.
The method of killing turkeys In
Norfolk la recommended, lt is oa
follows: The bird is hung up by tho
logs, tho wIiirs being crossed to pro-
vent struggling. Next It Is given a
shnrp blow on (ho hack of thu head
with a stout piece of worn), which
ron-ders It Insensible. Tho knife Is
then Inserted Into lhe roof of tho
mouth so as to pierce tho hri.ln, cutting It along the entire lengthi Tho
bird Is left hanging by tlio legs lor

drain out. Pluck ut once, while still

bird (Fig. 2). A string, which, how-
jover, should not encircle the body,
: may ho used to keep them in place.
I As soon ns the feathers are off hang
tho bird up by the feet to cool. Do
not lay it down or hung it by the
hend. Tho blood should drain down
toward the head nnd become
coagulated thoro. One dealer says
to lay the birds
on tholr breasts
on a setting
hoard, pressing
the rumps
square, letting
the heads bang
down until the
ni ly Is set,
when the birds
will always retain tholr plump

says Dallas I'tirni und Ranch. At th.
(mine time there are millions of acre. '
In tb. Mat. Hint are uow hoing grazed
Unit CD be successfully planted and j
cultivated, at least In forage crops. By
Increasing the acreage cultivated ot
these tillable lands their cattle producing capacity will be correspondingly
Increased. In other words, a given territory witb a large percentage cultivated In forage crops will produce, fatten and feed more cattle than will th.
same   amount   of   similar   territory
where tbe native grasses are relied on i
solely for feed.   It usually requires
ten acre, to the animal to supply feed I
the year around when tbo natural j
graase. are relied on, while ten acre,
properly cultivated tn  forage crop, j
will produce feed enough to carry a j
half doien cattle throngh tbe winter, !
and five acre, of the same land will
carry one animal through tbe spring,
summer and fall. By raising feed and
feeding through the winter the ranch- j
mnn  and   farmer   not ouly  guard,
against th. possibility ot loss, but aim ■
more than doubles the capacity of bla
property.
Tht. year'a experience of feeder,
with shredded corn fodder wlll go a
long way toward determining tbe status of this too n« 'li neglected forage,
says American Agriculturist   If attention Is given to thorough drying before-shredding, there can be but little
doubt a. to the outcome.   80 far a.
th. careful farmer Is concerned, shred-1
ded fodder has passed tbe experlmen-1
t.l stage.   He knows It Is llrst class
rough feed and tbat If given tbe prop-
er attention keeps perfectly.   Howev- j
er, the average farmer and stockmnn,
with bis somewhat careless methods,
mny not get the best results.   But he
know, that the fault Is his own, and
be can remedy It If he will.  The con-1
dltlons are much tho same as those .
confronting a community asking for
free rurnl delivery.   The government I
snys, "Provide good roads, nnd you '
wlll get free delivery."    Adopt Im-
proved methods, ond you wlll get good
feed.   Thc results of thlB season's experience wlll be awaited with Interest

JOB PRINTING PRICES.
THE LEADER *£**
I body wlio wants to save money
on Printing that this shop's prices
are lower than those of any other
office in the country. Having
satisfied ourselves on this point we
snail be pleased to compare notes
with any who doubt.
The quality of Tun Lbadbr's
job work is equal to anything produced iu tlie Province.
This Li'adkr employs only skilled union workmen, receiving the
full union scale of wages; its prices
and quality are always up to the
accepted standard.
Ladysmith merchants and others
who send lo Victoria, Vancouver
and other places for their job printing can save money, time, .misunderstanding and annoyance by
investigating Tmi Lkaih'r's statements as published here. When
we cannot print certain classes of
work we tell you so, we do not
take your order, have it done else
where and charge yon middleman's
commission.
Our Motto Is:—"Squaredealing;
one price for all; our best work iu
every job." Notrouble toestimate.
Call and see us about that job
printing work you are wanting and
we will save you money.
