tbt mutter ni tbe use of oil as fuel on
stwamera, said: "I found tbat it waa
very successfully used on the Oakland
ferry boats and ou the General Friable,
besides being the fuel on several of tbe
trans-raclflg liner**. I was informed
tha' It effected a saving ol (id per cent.
I made a trip myself with tlie chief
engineer of tbe Frietjje, and I bBlit-i-a It
to he ii-i- coming fuel,"
When asked whether Its use was detrimental to the bliters, Mr.Kamm stated
that it was not. "Tliere was one in-
Btunce tbatl heHrd of, and that was in
the cat-re of a rlearner where the jet wae
placed t'-o clOHfe to lhe 'crown-eheet. It
biiuamii overheated and gave way. On
iuveetigatioa it waB found that tbe
rivets bad been burn ml ay\ay by ibe
intense heat. Tlie remedy was simply
the placing of tbsi.'jet In such a way as
to distribute tiie hear, more evenly
through the Ore b;x. Of Oiinr-ie, in regard io the Saving oi fid per com, it must

J     Subscribers not receiving The
In common with many others who
' make ft practice of studying character,
we were giving Mr J. H. Hawthornthwaite, M.P.L., credit (or tbe possesion
of en uncommon amount of common
■•nee end discretion.
Thie Impression we are bound to confess has been completely shattered, nay,
obliterated! by hie extraordinary teh-
gram to the Hon. the Minister of Minis,
regarding tbe Royal Commission of enquiry Into the causae of eiplosions in
coal mines.
That telegram reveals traits of char
aeter which we never suspected had
lodgement In the mind of Nanaimo's
labor member, and which immediately
place him In a category far different
from tbat which we believed he deserved. -.
Mr Hawthornthwait*-*' says the com'
mission will be a royal farce, and that
tbe members of the commission are not
flt nnd proper persons to conduct such
an enqfllry. Witb only one of the com*
mttsioneri are we personally acquaint'
ed, Mr Tolly Boyce of Nanaimo, and we
Ihould just like to hear tbe name of
man who Is better quali6«d than that
gentleman to BU auch a responsible position as that to which he hae been appointed. We believe the other two
commie-doners are equally well fitted
lor tbeir duties In this reape-1', and we
are confident that the enmmi-'alon will
do most important service to tbe pro*
vlnce tn thie enquiry.
Tbe Hon. Col. Prior's crushing re*
joinder to Mr Hawthornthwait-"'a tele*
gram was folly warranted by tin con*
tents of that brief despatch; and if the
biting sarcasm indulued in by the Hon.
Minister of Mines bae made Mr Haw
thorntbwaite the IangMug-stock of
British Columbia, tbe labor weuibf.r has
certainly no one to blame but himself.

J. H, Hawthon-thwatte, Erq.. H. P. P.,
Sir,—I did not net your telegram of
the 23rd inet., until this morning, on
my return from the Kootenaya. It certainly Ib a great disaster to the minimi
community of British Columbia that
you were not appointed one nl die coin*
miaeloners, but I trust Ihe industry will
Burvive the shock. Xonr great practical
knowledge (?) nf under ground wonld
have eminently fitted yon for the position, no doubt. I t\o not think the
miners nl British Columbia will endorse
vnur Instilling U*l-*grain to me, but
whether tbey do or not will make no
difference In any action I may take. Ar
minieter 61 mines T am responsible for
tho personnel of tbe commleslnn, and 1
am glad to say that t think no belter
KMitlemeu could be found <n British Columbia for snch a cemmi'sion than the
three appointed.
Ynu do not give any reason why ?<n
object to them, sn I can only presume
they cannot, hn very aerinns ones. I am
quite willing to sbooider tbe responsibility of th* appointments feeling snre
they are'satisfactory lo all reason-'.hlf
and unbiased men,

Eugonle Dlilrlch
The old Indy snt very still. The
hands that usually made tbo knitting
needles (ly had uot moved foi full ten
minutes. Her eyes were Uxod abstractedly ou a somewhat worn spot In tbe
bt'Ight red aud vivid green ingrain carpet. If by chance she had been asked
what was lu her in Ind, sbo probably
would bave replied testily that it wan
about tlmo those carpet strips were
woven nnd put down. Whnt with the
tracking in and out and sitting round,
winter wns harder than summer on
But wheu the howling wind gave a
fresh blast and tbo coal in the base
burner sputtered np with an answering
glow she turned toward tlio muslin bung
windows, nnd one might* bave thought
that she wns having a little strugglo
to Bit still on her chair. The old man,
smoking by the stove, looked at her
furtively every once lu uwblle. Now,
wheu u stronger blast shook tbo house,
he pulled closer the black silk miifller
under his coat collar and turned to bis
"It's a cold night for New Year's,
mother. I mind It was nliuost as bad
whon Johnny was married"—
She did not answer or even look at
blm, but a tightening of the lips show*
ed that she bud hoard.
The old man had learned tbo danger
signals nud was silent for the time.
There was something unusual In mother's mood, but bo did not know for certain which way tbe signs pointed.
"Now Year's night do be lonosomer
thnn any other night," bo oontiuued
tentatively, "with no children nnd
young folks to see the old year out. I
saw Johnny's boy the other day"—
Then the old lady swung round In her
chair so bard and quick that sho Joggled the lamp at her elbow, and the little fringes on her silk embroidered
shoulder shawl trembled.
"Johnny's boy, Indeed! Arid you saw
him, of course. And whose fault Is it
but yours thnt Johnny's buy isn't here,
I'd llko to know? You were always giving the boys tbeir way nbout everything. That's how they came to marry
those Qulnlnn girls, far downs like
tbem, tbo Lord save us!"
"Well, mother, they always scoin»d
good girls to me and are good housekeepers now. Of course there's theoi
that may be bettor to our way of thinking." The old man never snld "yum"
wben making an nsscrLluti which motn

er might Question. "There's tbem that
bad more money, ond everybody can't
come from Limerick. Hut, then, it's the
lads who have to live with the girls,
and they ought to hnve something to
It was a long speech for the old man,
end tho old lady was gasplug when be
"Yes, and you dou't mind me having
to think of my own children's children
being brought up In tho ways of the
Quintans. It wasn't enough when
Johnny married Nellie, hut you hnd to
be that nice about It that Ulchnrd weut
and married Kate."
He tried to turn tbe stream of Indignation Into less Immediate channels.
"It did seem aggravating," ho said,
"though Johnny's boy seems a nice little fellow for seven. Hut of course,
mother, you dou't kuow him."
Didn't she know him? Wasn't sbo
going to church every Sunday Just to
see the children march lu for Sunday
school, and Johnny's boy with them?
She not know Johuny's boyi But she
said nothing.
The old man walked to the window, ;
a gcutlo, deprecating figure In a shiny
black suit tils white hair wns combed
forward over thc thinnest spots In
front and parted carefully toward the !
ears In the hack. The mild blue eyes \
•nd rosy skin gave blm a look of nl
parry, and all the children are still
there, I can see their little heuds bobbing up and down where tho curtain's
up. I shouldn't wonder If Johnny's
boy was there too."
The old lady did not answer. She
knew vory well that Johnny's two
boys and Itlchle's one were there, and
she had been listening ail evening,
with her heart In her mouth,, to the
sounds of wild weather.
"I don't know, mother," the old man
went on after ho was comfortably seated onco more, "but we ought to make
a wlll"-
"A wllll What Is putting things Into
your head tonight of all nights?"
"You see, it's New Year's," he answered, "and there's them who are
younger than us who won't bo here to
see the next new year In. Seeing the
way you feel about things, we might
leave most, ur considerable at least, to
tbo orphan asylum, tt would be doing
a lot of good"—
Sim jumped round in her seat again,
but whatever wiih Iu ber mind to an*
ewer was not said, for there was ft
knock at tho door.
"Mercy allvel" site said, snd "Gee,
but it's blowing!" came from without.
It wns Tommy Mulleny with a note
from his eldest sister. The children
who lived across the river could uot be
taken home In this blizzard. Word bad
been sent to the pa rents hy telephone.
Tbe Mullenys could take care of three
little girls, but there wero some of the
hoys whom they would like to send
over to the Moyuibana If It would not
be too much trouble. Somehow the old
nutu did uot look so astoulshed as one
might havo thought lie would.
"To bo sure, mother," he said. "I'll
Just go over and help Tommy bring tbe
children. 'Twill be like old times"—
' A vague expectation that mado her
heart beat and her bands tremble bad
seized upon the old lady. She set the
lamp in tbe window ns a guide and
strained her eyes to seo Into the howling swirl without that shut off even
thc sight of trees lu their own garden.
After a long fifteen minutes tbe stamping of feet told thnt they had come
back. The old man mumbled something about going around thc house to
look after things Tommy Mulleny held
tbo hull door open for three little boys,
nml then he said something nbout not
wanting to track snow all over the
house and vanished.
As for the old lady, she beard not.
She was looking nt the three little boys
who blinked-ut her. blinded by the
darkness without and the sudden glare
Of light within. Then tbe biggest oue
pulled off hia cap.
"Happy Now Year, grandma!" be
sang nut, and even as be did so be was
turning to peel off his little brother's
cap. "Jimmy's too little to take off bis
own cap. nud Cousin Richie, too, and
we all brought some cookies uud candy
from tbe party for you. My, I could
hardly walk, and grandpa bad to carry
ItIchlo, and Tommy Mulleny helped
Jimmy. But I'm glad It snowed. Mamma always said I couldn't come to set
you until I wns as big and as good aa
papa, but now I guess we Just bad to
come before we were big."
The old woman's trembling bands
were turning down bis coat collar.
"Look nt the curls of him," she aiur-
uiii-ed, bending over him hungrily—
"just like Johnny's! It's this long time
I've wanted to feel them, bless b!ml"|
And she kissed Johnny's boy again and
again. I
When the old man came In, puffing
and snow whitened, she bad tbe two
littlo fellows ou her lap, and Johnny's
boy leaned against ber, feeding ber
biles of his cooky.
The old man chuckled softly, "I
thought It would bring her round 1"
then aloud, "Well, mother, 1 guess we
won't have to leave everything to tbe
"What'H that?" sbo asked sharply.
"I was Just thinking we ought to
have a fire In tho boys' room for the
little laddies."
Tbe Kind of Peed Given Iln "n't Any
thin* lo Do Wilb it.
A corresjpoiideiit|.vrltes to Dairy and j
Creamery to ask how he cun so feed .
bis cowb tbat their milk will be richer J
In butter fat. The old belief that cows [
will produce milk rich or poor In but* j
tor fat according to the feed they nro j
given has a strong bold lu this country. ■
This belief led to the saying, "Nothing I
comes from a cow's tents thai has not ■
goue into her mouth." While this Is |
true In every sense of the word, long
continued and careful experiments ;
have proved that except within very j
narrow bounds it Is Impossible to im- ;
prove the quality of the milk of a cow 1
by feeding ber.
Thc quality of the milk Is a elm rae- !
teristlc of tbe Individual cow.   Sho j
gives milk that ls rich or poor In butter
fat from some natural tendency which
Is not well understood. This tendency t
Is tintisniUtal.lt> to ber descendants, I
and by careful selection It Is possible
to Improve tho average quality of the <
milk from a herd of cows to a wonder* .'
fill degree.
Given a cow that naturally gives '.
good milk—that rich In butter fnt—and j
breed her to a bull that Is from a cow j
thnt gives good milk, and the progeny
Is likely to be better than the dam, al* j
though this Is not invariably the case,   j
Butter fnt does not differ from (allow
In any essential way. It is animal fat
and Is elaborated from tbe feed given
the cow that produced tbe milk from
which It is separated. One cow will
turn tbe fat In ber feed to butter fat,
and another will store tt up lu ber
body. Tbe one cow will be a good butter maker and tbe other a pour one.
It is now pretty generally conceded
lhat milk is elaborated largely during
the process of milking. That It Is separated from the blood In some way ls
certain, Feed a cow more of the elements that go Into the composition of
milk, and sho will become fat. The cow
thnt gives poor milk will fatten much
easier than the one that gives rich
According to recent exhaustive experiments made by Professor Hgecker,
it does not make milch difference what
is fed to a cow if she Is given a plentiful supply of sound feed. Give a cow
all she needs of sound forage and
grain, and she will produce io the utmost possible limit butler fnt or tallow.
If she turns bor feed Into milk nnd butter fat, she Is a good cow. If she turns
It into tallow, she Is a poor cow from
tbo dairyman's standpoint.
If our correspondent will follow this
plan, he will get more butter fct from
bis cows, hut not richer milk. His cows
will give more milk than they would If
poorly fed ond every 100 pounds of
that milk will contain just as much
butter fat as Is natural for a given cow
to give. If she gives 3 per cent milk
and only 100 pounds u week, tbe mill:
will contain three pounds of absolute
butter fat, or about three and a half
pounds of butter. Feed her so sho will
give double the quantity of milk, nud
that milk will give double the quantity
of butter fat, but will not be richer
than the smaller quantity. The way to
get more butter fat fs to feed the cows
better, .fust what It Is best to feed
tbem ia a matter on which learned doctors disagree at Ibis moment. However, ltis safe to feed tbem enough, even
If tbe ration ls not quite balanced.

The hot wave last summer struck tbs
dairy portion of Iowa more severely
than any other part, says Tho Creamery Journal. A study of the weather
maps Issued from Des Molues during
the summer showed that a strip running south by southwest from near tho
northeast corner of the state received
no rain at the critical time when (he
corn needed lt most, and consequently
this strip suffered extremely. This winter farmers living in tbls strip are feeding shredded com fodder almost exclusively, (be high price of grain nnd
of bran ond even of bay being practically prohibitive. What Is tbe result?
JJJot bankruptcy. There Is not enough
protein In the fodder ration to make
-uucli more than half a mess of milk,
but the feed cost of this half mess Is
practically nothing compared wilb former methods of wasting tbo fodder. |
And. furthermore, n big fracilon of tho
farmers when tbey did feed grain fed
Jt so "unbalanced" that Ihu milk yield
was little greater than lt is this winter
With no grain.
* To Feed n Cow For Milk,
We keep a few cows, so I am most
interested in them and want to make
lt a specially, says "Subscriber" In National Stockman.  Our cows took well
and do well.  We feed oats and corn j
ground together, also sugar heels, some !
of which weighed seven and three* |
quarter pounds.  They eat them very,:
greedily, n peek apiece. I would not be '
without them.   Also fed timothy and
clover mixed.  We bave uo fodder, but j
Jt Is equal to grass If it can be saved j
green. I hnve a box for salt on the side J
of the barn, where the cows can help j
themselves.  I think the best I line to I
feed n cow for milk Ib when It is a calf, i
Feed It well, keep It growing, vigorous
nnd healthy until It gets to be a cow,
and you can be assured of a good cow ]
If the stock Is right.  I think as much i
of keeping a calf In good order as I do |
a cow.   13 very till tig Is stabled and In
stanchions.  In lids way we keep two
more than formerly In the snrae 6pacc.
HifiiKt* Prom thi) Cow Mrtnfter,
Cows which nre producing milk under heavy feeding should nnt be compelled to cat up forage too close. Let
them ent what tbey wlll readily, then
give what Is left to young stock. They
will do well on It. nnd tbe cows will
not be coml-olled to cat material which
is not palatable.

investigating The Leader's statements as published here. When
we cannot print certain classes of
