WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 19°*-
NUMBEH ONE.
It needs no prophet to point out to
the people of Ladysmith thnt they mnet
be keenly alert in tbeir own interests if
tbey would get their juet rights. As we
have pointed ont deliberate attempts
are being made In certain quarters to
"aide-track" this town. It depends
entirely on the ritiseni themselves
whether It shall be "side-tracked" or
not. Tbe life of a community is wonderfully like tbat of an individual—it Is
a fight, a strenuous hand to-hand battle,
from oradle to grave, and the individual
nor tbe community cannot get away
from the fight.
Our thriving little city, now rising
rapidly Into the full current of prosperity, has already encountered nne or
two knocks, and hae come out all the
better lor tbem; but "there are others"
blows below the belt, foul blows, that
must be gnarded against. We thorough*
ly believe tbat Ladyemith at this moment ia the victim of a "put up j>b."
We mean this ugly licencing business
It not, why this hugger-muggering in
Nanaimo? What wae there to prevent
tbat court being held here, as the laet
was?
Tbe case would not look nearly so bad
If no licensing court bad ever been held
here, and eo (ar as we can learn everyone wbo bad any business at that court
was perfectly satisfied tbat it was held
here and with tbe manner in which the
business waa done. Now cumes up before S uth Nanaimo licensing commit-
■loner* tbe most important. business
tbey ever had to deal with, and it is
carried off to Nauaimo! What Ib the
meaning of this?
The apathy of tbe citizens of Ladyimith under this outrage—tor it is an
ontragi— is amazing and discouraging.
We juk wonder what kind of iusultor
Injustice would fire lhe bl .nl of tbe
Ladyimllh people to the pnlnt of holding an indignation meeting m protest
against inch a piece of injustice as this
ll, If Ladyimith put* up with tbls
knock it will get many more.
Editor Leader;—It seems to me our
postmaster might arrange delivery hours
at the wicket a little better io accommodate   working ineu.   At [intent the
wicket Ib closed from one o'clock till
two,   besides the three-quarters of an
hour that it takcB to sun the Victoria
mall, leaving just about (ilteeu minutes
to let the public, who can't ttffuul b >xt tt
get their mail.   The  postmaster, if hu
waniB to please an important section of
the public, bhould keep the wicket open
till 1:30 aud close till 2:80;    Thia would
suit us workingmeu all right.   Then in
the evening we tmi'i getoui mail hecaur-e
the wicket is closed jm-t as we aie com
ing home,  lhe  t/ch.ik.   It  mijilil. bi
kept open till Bix to let wur king men ga, of It
mall.    Then, agnin, Mr. Editor, I think :
the poBtma&u-r  wasn't, light iu i-ioBh.g
the wicket all day Saturday,   Heahouiu
bave opened even Ior oue hour tu let us
fellows, tbat can't tsianu ihe lusuiy ot a

Native labor's wages In the Transvaal

almost to vanishing point, Io 1800 tbe

Editor Let der:—Tbeie are nimen us
applications to the licensing b <aid for
transfers of liquor licenses to be run In
this place. Are we or are not lo have
this place swarming with whtt-ky* dent?
For the population there are as mau)
now as can make a itapectablu living,
to Bay nothing ot priority of eett'emwn
aud tbe expense incurred in being . i.ie.
What haa Wen the result of the tin
businesslike and unit* .t-onuble li. uhl-
plying ol liquor license-* iu Victoria? in
alnrminu: inctease iu number of hom-te
of assignation, besides a tesort to the
loweBt and moBt nefaiiouB practices tu
make eudetne-H; although the Macter
Smoothlyb in that city may turn up a
sanctimonious nose at this assertion the
fact remains. How ean we expect an)
other outcome ta a practice of givinu
lour or five licenses where one would be
ample for a neighborhood? Then tht
chirping idiot comes iu with the assertion: "you want to make a monopoly."
Yes, I want to bave what I pay tor,
Why Bhould a man after going to the
I expense tbat tbe law exacts and paying
$200 per year for the privilege not have
some protection from seltUh greed tbat
would Btart next door to him and divide
what was only enough for one? There
Is all too much ol ihat ou this coast;
tbe fault is there are no proper laws laid
down for the governance of our licensing
boards; too much hack scratching; too
much latitude with no definite rule to
compel. Aie tbeie uo loverB of decency
and morality in Ladyetnith that we view
with equH.nimity tbe increase of such
places that must, when too uiimeruu-,
dugtnerate Into ulai.es of the most contaminating kind for youths and young
men? I luaru lhat there are person*
who have Bold out their original license
and are applying nr are about to apply
fur a new license, trusting to luck, brick-
scratching, or the laxity of the law tu
f-tvor their ends. I Bhould advocate tbe
giving of three mouths for their audacity
in applying. Much as our licensing
laws have been tinkered with from Hon.
John Robson's regime until the present
day, the) stand tbe most unreasonable
and unbusinesslike ever batched In the
addled brain of a faddist; yet some of
the men tbat conceived these Jaws are
he men In public tbat look with holy
horror at a bott'e of good Scotch. Woe
unto him that glveth hia brother strong
drink; yet hy their very rules they bave
caused more men to drink than any
saloon-keeper In the province. This
result comes from men tinkering with a
business they know little about.

The following from the Fort Collins
Express shows something of the conditions affecting tlio lamb feeding industry In Coloriido: "It is beginning to be
quite a serious problem for the lamb
feeders how to provide grain for the

practically censed. Outs nud hurley pro

Professor C. C. Georgoson, the special agent of the agricultural department who for the past three years bus
been lu charge of the agricultural experiments in the northern territory, believes thnt the time Is not far distant
when Alaska will be made to support
a vast agricultural population. lie

but what It can be repented on scores
of the Islands in that region. There Is

and practically the entire country Is

Detail!   of   How   Mella  Ann**   Kins
Wm Bred lo Order.
George E. Peer says in regard to the
young bull pictured; "lt might be '
stated tbat Mella Ann's King 50581
was bred to order. Having purchased
his sire, I bred bim to Lottie Mella Ann
100775, who Is a sister of Pride's Olga
fourth, with a test of 77 pounds •-_
ounce from 420 pounds 0 ounces milk,
both being sired by the same bull, with
hopes of securing a bull tit to head my
herd. In this my expectations were
fully realized, nnd Melia Ann's King
was the result. Next to his famous
sire be Is the highest standard bred

American Poultry Jourunl nnd referred
to Mrs. B. R Iilslop that Indy writes:
We have never raised geese hy confining the thick to ti 'certain amount of
ground and cun hardly say bow many
birds could be accommodated on two
nml ti half to four acres the entire season through, but If the hind is kept
producing all the grass or other green
forage It will there could be quite a
flock kept in this space, but there is
one thing sure—to get the best,returns
from geese they should nt all times
have an abundance of green food during iha warm season or while the stock
Is breeding nud the young stock growing. Old geese cau rough It aud can
stiind very short rations iu the winter
nnd we really believe lhat they ure bet
tor breeders on account of il, ultliougl
we give our birds quite good care since
we became interested lu llie fancy.
Were we to start, as your correspondent, proposes, we should start with
nbout two pens, not more than three.
I say "pent," because one has better
success all around by mating one male
witii from two to four females before
the mating season commences.
After all the eggs are set the first
two clutches are all a big breeder can
afford to set, as late ones require too
much cure. The old birds can then be
run in one (lock, saving room nnd trouble. The number of goslings raised
from one goose Is affected bo much by
condition's thnt we cun hardly give any
certain number us n rule. If there is
nil average of twelve, we should consider It excellent. The most we hnve
ever raised wns seventeen. We had f a im of -* pounds 2 ounces from 305

by Lucy's Stoke Pogls 11544 and out
of tho great old cow Mella Ann 51*14,
who tins a butter record of IS pounds

alone. The dam of Mella Ann's King
50581 Is Lottie Mella Ann 100775, with
male mated to the male. This was not
because we think single muting Ib the
best, but because there ls always better success with a small flock. This ls
true of all domestic fowls. Wo would
sow clover, ns It Is hardy nnd produces
nbunduntly, hut mixed with otber
grasses wo find thnt blue grass as a
body makes tho best pasture. Water
grass und wild rice wlll no doubt be
hue for lhe pool.
The goslings, unless the wcnthci Is
win-in, should be permitted to swim Id
the pool. They may be kept wlthlr
bounds by a fence of wire netting om
nml u half to two feet high, or a twelvt
inch hoard will pen them till the)
nre big. We do not approve of keep
ing them In close quarters after thej
nre ten days or two weeks old. Exer
else Is good for them as well as other
fowls, although they cau be reared
with very little. In such cases, however, the vigor is not all tbat It should
be. The goslings may be driven or coaxed anywhere and are so easily handled

NIIItlBEU ONE.
It needa no prophet to point ont to
the people of Ladyemith thnt they must
be keenly alert In their own interests if
they would get their just rights. Aa we
have pointed ont deliberate attempts
are being made in certain quarters to
"aide-track" tbie town. It depends
entirely on the eltizena themselves
whether It shall he "side-tracked" or
not. The life of a community is wonderfully like that of an individual—it ie
a fight, a strenuous hand-to-hand battle,
from oradle to grave, and the individual
nor tbe community cannot get away
from the right.
Onr thriving little city, now rising
rapidly into the lull current of pros
parity, hai already encountered one or
two knocks, and hae come ont all the
better for them; but "there are others"
blows below the belt, foul blows, that
muit be guarded against. We thorough-
ly believe that Ladyimith at this moment ia the victim of a "put up jib."
We mean tbla ugly licensing business.
II not, why thie hugger-muggering in
Nanaimo? What waa there to prevent
that court being held here, as the last
waiT
Tbe case would not look nearly so bad
If no liceuBlng court bad ever been held
here, and bo far ai we can learn everyone who had any tw-ineis at that court
was perfectly satisfied that il was held
hare and with tbe manner in which the
business waa done. Now comes np be*
fore 8 nth Nanaimo licensing commie-
sloners the most important business
tbey ever had to deal with, ami it is
carried off to Nanaimo 1 What ia ihe
meaning of this?
Tbe apathy of the citizens ol Lady
smith under this outrage—for it Ib an
outragf—is amazing and discouraging.
We just wonder what kind of insult or
Injustice would fire lhe h! ,,<t ol tbe
Ladysmith people to the point of bold
log an Indignation meeting to protest
againit mob a plane of Ip justice as tbii
Is. If Ladysmith putt up with thia
knock it will get many more.
Native labor's wages In the Transvaal
gold and diamond mines are to be lowered
almost to vanishing point. In 1800 tbe
average weekly wage* of the blacks In
the mines was $13; now it Is $6, and it
tl to be reduced to three. Wben the
black man haa time to study this thing
ont there will be trouble.
London's police are to carry revolvers,
as a protection from the murderous
hooligan, who amuses himself by kicking inoffensive strangers and occasional
policemen to death. Now, let no maw-
klih "humanitarians" arias and demand
that the polios renounce the revolver.
Why spoil i° t*00'* *chB,u*t0 f-*'t tid of
a few of our human wild beasts?
Some Nanaimo people think tbeir
town would be secured against heavy

For tbe population there are as many

to say nothing ul priority t.f settlement
aud the expense incurred in being I t.ie,
What ban been the result of tbe tin
bualnesshke and unre. .eonuble n.ulii-
plyiug ui liquor licensed iu Victoria? in
alariuiuiMiiCteaeti iu number of iwufie
ol assignation, besides a resort to >im
lowest aud most nefatioUB practices to
make eudsuie-'t; although the Maeter
Smoothlya in that city may turn tip a
sanctimonious nose at this assertion the
fact remains. How can we expect any
other outcome to a practice of giving
four or five licenses where one would be
ample for a neighborhood? Then tbe
chirping idiot cornea in with tbe assertion : "you want to make a monopoly."
Yes, I want to have what I pay for.
Why ahould a man after going to tbe
expense tbat the law exacts aud paying
$200 per year tor the privilege not ban
some protection from selfish greed that
would start next door to bim and divide
what waa only enough for one? There
la all too much uf that on tbla coast;
tbe fault Ib there are no proper Ihwb laid
down for tbe governance of our licensing
boards; too much back scratching; too
much latitude «ith no definite rule to
compel. Ate there no lovers of decency
and morality in Ladysmith that we view
with squnnimlty tbe increase of such
places that must, when tou unmerou-*,
degenerate into tdat.es of the must contaminating kind for youths aod young
men? I lenrn that there are persons
who have sold out their original license
and are applying or are about to apply
for a new license, trusting to luck, brick-
scratching, or the laxity of the law tu
f-tvor their euds. 1 should advocate tbe
giving of three mouths for tbeir audacity
in applying. Much as our licensing
laws have been tinkered with from Hou.
John Robaon's regime until tbe present
day, tbey staud tbe moat unreasonable
and unbuBineBBlike ever batched in the
addled brain of a faddist j yet some ol
the men that conceived these laws are
'he men in public that look with holy
horror at a bott'e ol good Scotch, Woe
unto blm that glvetb his brother strong
drink; yet by their very rules they have
caused more men to drink than any
saloon-keeper In the province. This
result comes from men tinkering with a
business they know little abont.

The following from the Fort Collins
Express shows something of the conditions affecting the lamb feeding industry In Colorndo: "It Is beginning to be
quite u serious problem for the lamb
feeders how to provide grain for tlm
feeding. Corn Is selling ul $1.32 per
hundredweight, nnd its Importation bns
practically censed. Ouls nnd hurley nre
quoted ut $1.25 and wheat nt $1.10. The
feeders ure quietly scouring lhe country picking up wheat, nnd the competition between them nnd the Hour mills
Is likely to be quite active. Some remember a winter ilvo or six yours ago
when somo Nebtnskuus came in here
with Inmbs and quietly bought nil tbe
whear In sight, compelling the millers
to Import grain to keep their mills going. The wheat is cracked1 for use und
Is snid to be an excellent substitute
for tho corn, but If oven It cannot be
obtained the buying of lambs must perforce cense. It would seem na if lltose
who raised spellz nre In luck. The experience of those -who have tried It indicates Hint It is nbout, if not quite, ns
good ns corn, nnd yields of sixty bushels per acre nre not uncommon."
Very Sot'limii.
An exchange tells us thnt the An-
gorn gouts ut the Pun-Aiiierieun had
wool not unlike a small Leicester sheep,
but for some uiuiccotiiiluble ronson It
Is cnlled hulr. Speaking of the Merinos, it snys:
"Comment is libernlly bestowed by
visitors when viewing this odd looking
breed of sheep. The conservative breed

bad the wool pulled, or rather grown,
over their eyes until they enn hardly

Sheep In Alimkn.
Professor C. C. Georgeson, the Bpe*
ciul agent of the agricultural department who for the past three years bus
been In charge of the agricultural experiments In tbe northern territory, believes that tbe time Is not fur dlstnnt
when Alaska will be made to support:
n vast agricultural population. lie
stutes that llie Alaska Cominerclul
company bus for years raised cuttle
uml sheep near Kiidink and near Una*
Inskii without fecdlug them n thing iu
the winter. The sheep have Increased
at the rate of about 00 per cent anuu-
nlly, nnd the flock shears nbout live
pounds of wool annually per head.
This has been done for the past sixteen yeiirs, There can be uo question
but what It can be repeated on scores
of the Islands in that region. There is
but little timber or undergrowth there,
nnd practical.** the entire country Is
covered with a heavy growth of nutritious grasses.

BREEDING GEESE,
Some Points on Feeding and Sitting
nnd the Care of (JoHHn**-;*-,,
In answer to queries received by the
American Poultry Journal and referred
to Sirs. B. P. Hlslop that lady writes:
We have never raised geese by confining the flock to a certain amount of
ground nml can hardly suy how many
birds could be accommodated on two
and a half to four acres the entire season through, but If the land is kept
producing all tho grass or other green
forage It will there could he quite a
flock kept in this space, but there Is
one thing sure—to get the best.returns
from goose tbey should nt all times
have an abundance of greeu food during Iha warm sensou or while tbe stock
is breeding uud the young stock growing. Old geese cnu rough it and can
Btaud very short rations in Hie winter
nnd we really believe Uml they ure bet
tor breeders ou account of it, altbougt
we give our birds quite good care since
we becume interested in the fancy.
Were we to start, as your correspondent proposes, we should start with
about two pens, not more than three.
I say "pens" because one has better
success all around by mating one male
with from two to four females before
the mtitiiig season commences.
After nil the eggs nre set the first
two clutches are nil a big breeder can
afford lo set, as late ones require too
much cure. Tbe old birds can then be
rim in one (lock, saving room and trouble. The number of goslings raised
from one goose Is nfl'octed so much by
conditions that wo can hardly give any
certain number as n rule. If there ls
an average of twelve, we should con-
sldet It excellent. The most wo have
ever raised was seventeen. We had
live others that we let die by not
knowing how to care for tbe late
hatched ones, but we only had one fe-
mnlo united to tbo mate. This was uot
because we think single mating Is the
best, hut because there Is always better success with a small flock. This Is
true of all domestic fowls. We would
sow clover, as it is hiirdy nnd produces
abundantly, but mixed with other
grasses wo find that blue grass as a
body makes the best pasture. Wuter
grass nud wild rice wlll no doubt be
tine for the pool.
Tbe goslings, unless the wenthei Is
warm, should he permitted to BWlm to
the pool. They mny be kept withlr
bounds by a fence of wire netting ont
and u half to two feet high, or a twolvi
inch hoard will pen them till they
are big. We do not approve of keep
big tbem In close qtinrters nfter the)
nre ten days or two weeks old. Hxer
else Is good for them as well as other
fowls, although they can he reared
with very little. In such cases, how*
ever, the vigor Is not nil that tt should
be. The goslings may be driven or coaxed anywhere and are so easily handled
that lu case of a rainstorm they can
be driven to shelter and wlll most;
likely seek It themselves If taught to
do so. I nfeuthered goslings cannot
sinnd much rain. Do uot feed grain
till the young nre three days old, but
see Hint they are well supplied with'
green food, drinking water and grit!
During this period we feed them corn
bread or mnsh. |
We have never set goose eggs In an
Incubator, but would give a chicken1
hen six or seven goose eggs that would
ordinarily cover fifteen hen eggs. In
starting, a breeder is supposed to start
with good, vigorous birds. Females
should be two years old if he wishes
ta raise quite a number of goslings from
each goose. The birds should be given
care, range, water, grit and a little
grain during the breeding season. The
females should not be permitted to Bit
on the first clutch of eggs. The goose
Is a good sitter and a good mother, but
we prefer to rear the young with the
domestic hen. We presume that a
) brooder would he just as satisfactory,
If properly managed and cleaned, but
denning It would be quite a chore.
Besides, tbey only require a mother for
.t a short period. Onerous feeding after
! the young once get thoroughly atarted
Is the mnkiug of a goose, ■

George E. Peer says ln regard lo the
young bull pictured: "lt might be
stated that Mella Ann's King 50581

both being sired by the same bull, with
hopes of securing a bull tit to head my

fully realized, and Melia Ann's King

Prominent sheepmen of ItnwUns,
Wy., aay that a movement Is on foot
to form n sheep trust to control every
sheep ranging In caribou county—over
1,000,000 head. The consolidation Ih
desired by n number of sheepmen ou
account of the range difficulties which
are constantly arising. There are
enough sheep in the country to occupy
every ncre of good range, and the small
owners are coiitsiintly flushing with
their flocks. If the trust Is formed, nil
flocks wlll be controlled by an executive board, and luterests will be pouted,
each man 'receiving nn average prollt
for each head of sheep tbat he owns.
The Idea is meetlug with favor.—Den*

Miss Stillle Blnke, who lived In Calvert county, Md., like many country
people, wns In tbe habit of gathering
chicken grapes lu the fall for the purpose of making a palatable nnd stimuli! dug decoction by pouring over the
grapes (he proper quantity of whisky
ami allowing the mixture to staud for
the necessary time. It happened ou
one occasion, after thc contents of a
demijohn containing the decoction bad
been exhausted, that Miss Blake emptied the whisky soaked grapes on the
ground, where her tine brood of turkeys
gobbled them np.
The turkeys became drunk—so drunk,
In fact, that tbey were soon lying ou
tlie ground, sleeping off tbeir Jag. Miss
Blake, not realizing the cause of their
stupor, thought they were dead. In order to realize us much ns possible out
of the supposed dead turkeya she hnd
them picked so ns to get the feathers,
and the enrensses were thrown outdoors. The ucxt morning Miss Blake
was surprised to see her turkeys walking about. They were alive, It li true,
but such u spectacle ns they presented,
with only their tall nnd wing feathers,
she had neVer seen before. In order
io protect them from the cold she
bought enough red flannel to make
each of (hem a comfortable coat to replace the feathers. Tin orkeys were

There Is a great deal of rough, bro
ken land in western and southwestern
Texan thnt will grow fairly good grass
that cunnot be successfully cultivated,
says Dallas Farm and Bunch. At tho
same time there are millions of acres
In the state thut ure now being grazed
that can be successfully planted and
cultivated, at least in forage crops. By
increasing the ucrenge cultivated of
these tillable lauds their cnttle producing capacity wlll be correspondingly
Increased. In other words, a given territory with a large percentage-cultivated lu forage crops will produce, fatten and feed more cattle than wilt the
same amount of similar territory
where the native grasses are relied ou
solely for feed, It usually requires
ten acres to the nnlmnl to supply feed
the year around when the natural
grasses are relied on, while ten acres
properly cultivated ln forage crops
will produce feed enough to carry a
half dozen cattle through the winter,
aud five acres of the same land will
carry one animal through the spring,
summer and fall. Uy raising feed and
feeding through the wtuter thc ranch*
mnn and farmer not only guards
against the possibility of loss, but also
more tban doubles the capacity of hia
property.
Tbls year's experience of feeders
witb shredded corn fodder will go a
long way toward determining the status of tbls too iis^-li neglected fo--ge,
says American Agriculturist. If at*
tentlon Is given to thorough drying before shredding, there cau be but little
doubt ns to the outcome. So far aa
the careful farmer Is concerned, shredded fodder has passed the experimental stage. He knows It Is first class
rough feed uud that if given the proper nttentlon keeps perfectly. However, the average farmer nnd stockman,
with bis somewhat careless methods,
may not get the best results. But he
knowB thnt the fault Ib his own, and
he can remedy tt If he will. The conditions nre much the same ns those
confronting a community asking for
free rural delivery. The government
says, "Provide good roads, nnd you
will get free delivery." Adopt Improved,methods, nnd you will get good
feed, The results of this season's experience will be nwulted with interest.
Re Snra Alio at tho Dant.
Bee that n good dust bath Is provided for the fowls. Take two pieces
of boards 0 Inches wide and 3 feet

To Make Corn Crop Pr-iU'ittil--.
In the eastern states, where dairying ls a large industry, more land may
he devoted to corn, not for sale or exportation, but to feed on the farm from
the silo or ns grain to the cattle and
hogfl nud thus save purchasing, says
nn Ohio fanner In American Agriculturist. For the protein needed to balance the ration clover or alfalfa tuny
be grown for reiiglmge. and soy beans
Will give the protein concentrate required.
These crops should make the dairy
farmer almost Independent, as llltlo
bran would he required, Then let blm
weed out his dairy, keeping no cow
tbat doea not give over 0,000'pounds of
milk or make 800 pounds of butter In
a year. Corn, in my opinion, cannot be
grown In the middle ami eastern sinier*.
In competition with the -grant west for
Shipment. The grain and slover must
be utilized on ihe rami ami marketed
In live stock or dairy products to make
tha corn crop profitable to tbe farmer
