then delivered a splendid address on
Canada's needs, the principal one of
which ssemed to lis men who had brains
enough to appreciate the fact tbat tbey

Many who had opposed Mr. Martin
bitterly spoke quietly about him and
hia policy, and this was especially
noticed amongst tbe Kootenay delegatel,
There seemed to be an impression that
Mr. Martin ia tbe only man fit to lead

broadly hinted that surprises were in

Vancouver Island, it ippeirs to ui, Is
at a critical atag. in iti div.lopm.nt
(tiling the word in ita accepted Yankee
Man). Very much depend, nponth.

going to tiki iti plus ii oneol the
greatest centre, ol activity in North
America or Me the next twenty yein
nan in tbe dawdling fnbion that hai
characterized the put twenty.
The one man who ean do more than
any other individual lor the opening up
ol Vancouver Island and making it
great and protperoua Ii the Hon, Jamet
Duntmuir. To hii care hia been com
mltted interests which involve not only
enormoui responsibilities, but alio
enormous possibilities. So far at we
have been able to find out Mr, Duntmuir
bat done all that could have been expected of any man, aa au Individual;
but we are sorry to find thit many ot
hit effort! at developing thli island have
been balked and thwarted by person! and
companies who seem to believe that
Mr, Duuimuir has sinister design! upon
the island—perhaps, who know!?, tbe
proclamation nf an absolute monarchy,
with bimsell aa first occupant of tha
throne I
To hear thoie people talk one might
imagine that Mr. Dunsmuir had betrayed felonioui detigni ol some sort,
The facts, however, are that Mr, Duns
muir and the companiei in which be li
concerned have fully done their sban in
opening up the resources of the island,
and tbey would have done immensely
more had it not been lor the factious
opposition of penons whose conduct has
been a scandal and a disgrace in tbii
respect. But lor thoie dog-in-the-
manger obttructionitti Mr. Duusmulr'i
grand plans for making the island a
hive ot industry wonld have been in
lull operation now.
Nanalmo wonld have been a city ol
fifty thouiand inhabitants, and without
a peer aa a ihipping port on the Britiih
Columbia coiat. But tbe piide and
ieaiouiy ol one man aald " No! It ihall
not be, because, where wonld I be,
then?" Yet, oi what use mourning
over what might have been? Mr. Duni.
muir li today atill men itrongly imbued
with the deiire to ue Vancouver Island
llooriib, and il the people want to lee
that happy consummation they ihould
learn that it ii not to be accompliihed
through meaningless obstruction.
He ii able to do much himself, but if
be were backed up by the people ai a
whole, Vancouver Island would leap to
the front as a mineral, lumbering, agricultural and flihery centre. Flnt the
people will have to get rid ol tbeir tenia-
leu prejudice, which is just ignorance-
prejudice li only anothar name for
ignorance—learn that Mr. Duntmuir
stands ready to join hands with tbem
heartily in any reasonable ichemeol
development and that, assured of tbe
people'! lyinpitby and lupport be will
do bii lhare manfully in making Van.
couver Island what it ought to be.
Whether it waa the potency el the
three-star ginger beer, or tbe tongue-
tangling tea that the ladles provided at
the least ol reason and flow ol soul when
Mr. Ralph Smith was tarewelled, last
Saturday night, tbat caused the great
statesman to say exactly the opposite
from what be meant to say, we cannot
determine, but at any rata Mr. Smith on
that occaiion certainly delivered himself
of a very intereiting itatement,
It il all the inoio intereiting from tie
fact that Mr. Smith hai the superhuman
impudence to discourse about logic in
his occasional addreasei. Himself
bounteonely endowed witb it, according
to him, and bii opponent! born without
a tcrap of the valuable quality. In bii
ipeech on Saturday night Mr. Smith
waa talking about critics, and taking
cold comfort from a natural doggednen
and capacity lor aludyiog punishment
which i. often a characteristic when
nature has denied the itandard quantity
ol brains.

from Dr. Johnson, too. We ihould ai
■oon have expected to hear the ghost ol
Dr. Johnson pointing a moral aud adorning a tale with a quotation from the
logical speeches ol Mr, Smith; but (here
are no bounds to the "uerve" ol-this
coming cabinet mlniiter. Mr. Smith
laid; *
"Ae Dr. Johnson had laid, the time
to get angry wai when hard things that
were true were said about one."
Mr, Smith, it will be remembered, got
very wroth at Tbe Leader at a certain
meeting hold in Nanaimo opera house,
what time one J. H. Hawthornthwaite
gave Mr. Smith the worst grldironing
he had received since Mr. Molnnea held
him over the burning pit, bat did not
drop him in, abont a year ago. Then,
The Leader, according to Mr, Smith's
own statement, fortified by that of the
late Dr, Johnson (wonder II Ralph
knows he'i dead) wai ipeaking tbe hard
thing called tne troth. Had it been
what Mr. Smith politely called it, in tbe
preience ol a large audience ol ladiei,
who doubtless appreciated tbe delicate
taite ol Mr. Smith and hii gentleman,
like language, Mr, Smith would not
have shown any sign of choler. But
the fact ii be got flaming hot under the
choler, and (or some minutes raved and
ranted like a Bedlamite. The Leader'
statements all along have beon too true
for Mr. Smith, snd he knowi It, snd hai

When the cow Is abont seven months
gone with calf, cut her feed down to
small amounts of clover buy, brim und
silage, says Evnu B. Slinrpless in National Stockman. Try to have her dry
about one month prior to calving. Two
weeks before Iter time la up, should she
be In a plethoric condition, give her
a pound of epsou salts, nnd each week
she is given a tenspoonful of saltpeter.
She Is not allowed tho run of tbo yard
or pasture for fear some accident may
befall her. Very often a dnni loses her
calt or has troublo calving because ot
nn accident which could have becu
avoided had she been fastened up.
When frcsb, a pound of epsoin salts is
given from a long necked drench bottle. The salts'nre dissolved ln three
pints of boiling water and then allowed to cool to 100 to 105 degrees F.
There is no better time to rid our
herd and stables ot every germ of abortion and contamination than at calving
time. Every birth should bo treated
ns on abortion, and dairy barns would
eoon become free from the drended
trouble. As soon ns the calf Is born it
is removed from tbe sight of the mother and wrapped with an old blanket In
a comfortable bed of straw and allowed to remain until dried off. While It
fa drying off return to the cow nud
glvo her one quart of bran to two or
three quarts of cold, clean water. This
should be repeated five or alx times
dally. Give littlo aud often, ns too
much cold water at one time might
bring on n chill, and cold water Is preferable to warm, as the cow's system Is
feverish enough. Don't give too much
hay or It wlll have a tendency to pack
the fourth etomach and bring on that
meat dreaded of all discuses, milk fever.

In a paper read by Dr. Leonard
Flersou boforo the Now Jersey Agricultural society on the subject "Cow
Health" ho said in pint:
Tho subject of cow health includes
everything that Influences ln nny way
tho functions of an animal, tbo workings ot any orgnn or nny set of organs. Under that head, you Bee, we
wlll have to include breeding nnd rearing mid feeding nud general stable
management nnd cure, and, In fact, tho
subject of cow health Includes the
whole subject cf animal husbandry.
It Is manifestly useless to attempt to
cover more than a small corner of this
great Held, so I shall confine my remarks to stables and stable conditions
and tbo influence of those conditions
upon tho health of tho cow, aud I believe that of all tbo things bearing upon tho health ot the stabled cow light
Is the most Important. But It Is very
difficult to select. Tbero nre so many
things tbat are of high importance,

The Hew Wyandotte*.
The new variety of Wyandottes,
called Silver Penciled Wyandottes, is
a beautiful fowl, but beyond all thli
they are wonderful egg producers, A
lot nre known to have been hatched
early in July, 1900, which began to lay
about Christmas. Two of them have
continued to lay right along for seven
months. During May these two hens
laid, one, twenty-ono eggs; the other,
twenty-three eggs. For 210 daya, ending July 20, these two bena have laid
207 eggs between them. If the ratio
could be maintained, these two hen.
might produce In the full S6S day.
250 eggs each. But It la to be presumed that they cannot continue at
this rate much longer. This new variety Is a combination of the original
Silver Laced Wyandotte nnd the Dark
Brahma. In them has been united the
blood ot two of the best general purpose fowls wo have. None of onr
American breeds Is better.for eggs
and market poultry than the flnt
Wyandotto tbat Waa originated tn upper New York state. Fully their equal
is the Dark Brahma. The union ot tbe
two has produced a fowl that has tho
Wyandotte shape with the Dark Brahma color. The credit ot originating the
new variety belongs to Cayuga county,

A Kentucky dairyman gives In Sural
New Yorker his experience In mixing
com and cowpeas In bla alio. He aaya:
I tried filling my alio for several
yean with corn alone, I then tried tUI-
Ing with corn and cowpeas and waa so
well pleased that I kept It up for several yean till I sold out my dairy. Judging by tbo way 'the cowa ate them, if
anything the peaa made the better silage. When run through the cutter, tbe
green peas would cut very flue and
pack very close and make a better
keeping silage than tbe corn alone, and
for me it bad one other decided advantage In growing the crop.
It la very convenient to have whatever you put In the silo near ut hand,
and by growing corn and cowpeas I
could uso tho same field each year,
growing one-half In each and alternating. The fourth crop with thla rotation
waa tbe hoavlcat. Aa soon aa the silo
was filled the ground was harrowed
and town to rye. One hundred pounds
of rnwbone to tbe acre waa the only
manuring it had. Tbo calvea ran oo
the rye all open weather during tbe
Winter, and when it atarted to grow ln
the spring my herd ot forty cows waa
hardly able to keep it down till the
bine gran got a start, wben it waa
plowed again and left alone for several
weeks, then thorougbly prepared and
planted to corn and peas.
