tbat he Ib a great man. He haa thought
and he haa done something, the beet

did not get a chance to stick his right
hand iuto bia manly bosom, crook hia

elevate his Roman noBe (we auppoBe it

"Gentlemen, I have been offered a

thousand a year, but I won't take it,

gentlemen, not if it was fifty thousand

Life Guards,
The time to advertise ia all tbe time.
From legislating for a people to pick
ud shovel work le a tolerably far cry tn
those days of comlort-loving and high
feeding; of cheap swagger and jaeka
napery where every man seems to be
trying to impress hia neighbor with bis
own Importance, and when tbere is a
distaste amounting to horror for earning
a living by handwork and the sweat of
one's own brow.
Mr J. H. Hawthornthwaite, the only
consistent labor member ever chosen by
the Nanalmo people to represent tbem
in the provincial assembly, Ib tbe man
who, having done his darg, and no
unimportantone, In the legislature, baa
taken np tbe tools of horny-handed toil,
the pick and shovel, because uther employment was not at the time to the
fore, and la eiercising his right to earn
bla daily bread by honest toil.
It reminds one of tbe old Roman,
Oinetnnatua, wbo waa persuaded by hie
fallow-countrymen to forsake his turnip
nnd onion beds and come to Rome and
extricate the Btate from a pickle. He
disliked the notion of deserting his little
farm and going np to the roaring city
eren for the leered sake of Rome; but
like a man, he went, did what he could
—sufficient for all relief then wanted—
and then went back to his neaps and
Mr Hawthornthwaite, who has given
a degenerate age au example of this
stern Etruscan or Hpartan resolution,
accomplished more during the last sen*
■Ion of tbe provincial legislature, mure
to the rmlld advantage of the worklngmen
ol thli province, than Ralph Smith has
accomplished in all hii years ae a public
man* and with all hia selfish Intriguing
tor hii own ends. Mr. Hawthornthwaite
may take the Workmen's Compensation
Bill in bis band and cni,lld< utly await
the eober and sensible judgment of his
feliow-workingmen. Legal men will tell
the enquirer tbat that' hill represents

ject hitherto onlj venti'ated in tin' Ladyemith Leader:
Editor Herald—
Sir,—A great confab ia lining on at
present respecting the MelCechuie* Bogle
deal and it is about time we, na Ihe meu
who have to pay the piper, ehould have
something to say reepeuiiug the tune.
It is a fact as published that McKechnie ib still drawing our pay while in the
east Improving himself Iur hie own good
tben we ought to know about it.
Ou the other hand, if he only sold the
zood will of hia bueii-.r-sa to IIoj;lo hr a
certain Bum, 1 don't kmw il wu can do
anything about ae it is something that
happens every day and every doctor considers hia practice has a commercial
Ou the uther baud, if Hogle bit off
mure than he could chew, and now that
we are face to face with dull timte he
wants tu squeal, we are the people who
ought to kick. I fur one want tn see our
money spent in such way as to pr01*11, e li r
us a first class doctor who will not entrust any department uf his w irk to an
unqualified man. Surely the money we
pay ought tu ensure us that. I have no
kick aeainBt McKechnie ixcept that he
was a monopolist. I have no kick ag*un
st Hogle except for  the eame reason.
But il McKechnie, in the role of mon*
opoli.t made a deal with Ho«h\ Hogle
is as much to blame aa MrlCeuhuiu,
because it wae Hogle who took the rink
uf making these paynnnts and niviiig ns
d first class service.
Men of Nanaimo can we nil' -nl to hit
bought and to'd in this way? I sny uo.
L*t us throw the whole business up and
divide the work among the other quel*
ified meu iu the town and then we can
siotutir piearijitiouc diept-need where we

The time to advertieeia all the time.
Tbe latest uiteiaute fiom Mr. Koike
feller's Uuiversuy ol Chicago ie found
in a lecture on art and literature >>y
William Not man Guthrie.   He declared:
'Shakespeare aud Homer are not im
mortals, and I ahould be bitterly disappointed if tbey were, 1 hope that in
the near future the human race will so
improve in its taatte and accomplish-
meute that Shakespeare will be held unfit to read."
Professor Guthrie might take a postgraduate course in English grammar to
begin with, and then grieve about the
unworthiuuBB of Shakespeare. We have
seen boye flagged fur milder breaches ol
grammar than the emasculated Gutbrit-
perpetratea Iu the fort going deliverance,
Wheu the human race finds Snakespeare
"unfit to (be) read" it will be because it
has mure Outlines than men of senile.
The time to advertise is all the time.

tu an awe-struck public that Miss Agues
Ddami Cameron of tbat town has succeeded in worrying au autograph letter

There was a very goud attendance and a

ln passing an unuiually severe ten-
tence upon a rnftiau wbo had been convicted of gross cruelty to a bone which
he was driving, an English judge remarked that ninety-nine timeaout of a
hundred the meu wbo abused horses
which tbey were driving, did so to bide

How They Do It In Vermont—ir-roin
Sup Out bur lit K tn Simarlim Off.
Maple Biignr nml sirup nro favorite
sweets the country over"; nnd this fact
gives n general interest to sonio in forma Lion about tlio maple sugar industry
which bus practical value also for the
scot Inns where this particular kind of
sugar making prevails, An American
Cultivator correspondent supplies the
following details:
Some sugar places in this Immediate
vicinity number over 7,000-trees.
The evaporator is lhe first nnd most
iinpurlnut.consideration. Tlm point to
be-considered in un evaporator is tlie
A BUQAIt IKirsi:
one thnt can make the best sugar tn
the least possible time with the least
amount of fuel. Evaporator**, are mnde
of galvanized Iron or steel, copper or
tin. Tbey are usually supported on iron
arches lined with brick, but sometimes
the arches nro made entirely of brlelt.
Storage tanks, draw tanks, sirup tanks,
buckets and palls two of gatvnnlssed
Bteel, tin or wood. Wo consider galvanized steel the superior article becnusO
It will not rust. Bucket covers can he
of wood or tin; spouts, steel or tin.
Tako n sugar place of 3,000 trees or,
rather, one that uses il.ouO bnekets.
When the "boss" thinks It Is time to
"sugar," tbo meu are set to tapping the
trees. A three-eighths or one-half Inch
bit ls used, nnd In large trees the hole
Is bored about two Inches deep, in
BiiiiiHer trees only about one and a half
inches. Spouts are driven or screwed
In, buckets hung to each spout and
covers. If they have thorn,
Some trees are tapped in two or three
nml oftentimes four places, hanging n
bucket to each spout of course. Then,
tbe weather being right, the sup runs,
and the tennis are started ns soon as
possible, for the quicker tbo sup is
made Into Bpgar tbe better the sugar is.
Men with palls holding slxtceu
quarts go to each tree, collect the sup
and empty it Into tho draw tank,
which Is being hit tiled about on a
"sugar sled" by a pair of horses. These
tanks hold anywhere from twenty-live
to fifty pitlll'uls, Wben a toad fs so-
cured, the team is driven to the sugar
house, and the sap, hy means of four
Inch pipes, ls drawn from the draw
tank to the storage tank.
Tho storage tanks nre placed on n
staging on tho outside of the sugnr
house aud connected with tho evaporators by rubber hose or iron pipe,
the flow of sap from storage tntik to
evaporators being regulated by auto*
Ultttlf valves. Thus tbe sup enters one
end uf tbo evaporator, working buck
ni:,t forth through partitions and cor*
ni.-.liloiis till It reaches the other end
oi' the evaporator, when It is drawn off
as "sirup."
The sup Is not "bandied" any from
tho time tbe men pour it into the draw
tanks until It comes out a finished
article—1. o., maple sirup at eleven
pounds to the gallon.
This may bo put away in sirup tanks
and allowed to cool and Bottle, nud
then, If the augar fa wanted, this sirup
Is put Into tbo "sugaring off" putt on
a separate arch and boiled down until
tho right pitch is reached, when It Is
taken from* tho tiro, stirred gently and
allowed to cool and then put Into tin
cans or wooden tubs, and It is thou
ready for market In thc form of maple
Ho* Peed nnd Firm Pork.
Pood is thought to greatly determine
tho firmness of pork. At the Canadian
experimental farm n ration of equal
parts of outs, peim nud barley gave the
firmest pork. Tho longer com was
fed the greater was the tendency to
Mftnarlnj! For Whent.
Manuring for wheat Is not advised
In most parts of lown, as a rank
growth Is liable* to result nnd lodging
follow. It Is beat, according to an
exchange, to apply tbe manure to oom
or grass crops.
The Kind of Feed Given Ilin-tn't Aiit-
thlittf to Uo With It.
A correspondent|.vritea lo Dairy and
Creamery to ask how bo can so feed
his cows that their milk will be richer
In butler fat, The old belief Unit cows
will produce milk rich, or poor In butter fat according to the food tbey are
given has a strong hold in this country.
This belief led to tho saying. "Nothing
comes from a cow's teals lhat bus not
gone Into hor mouth." While this Is
true In every sensu of the word, long
continued anil careful experiments
have proved that except within very
narrow bounds It is Impossible to improve the quality of the milk of a cow
by feeding her.
The quality of the milk Is a characteristic of the individual cow. She
gives milk that is rich or poor in butter
fat from some natural tendency which
Is not well understood. This tendency
Is ti'iinsmlllnhle to her descendants,
and by careful selection It is possible
to improve the average quality of the
milk from n herd of cows to a wonderful degree.
Olven u cow that naturally glvei
good milk—that rich in butter fnt—nnd
breed her to u bull that Is from a cow
that gives good milk, nnd the progeny
ls likely to be better than the dam, although this is not Invariably tbo case.
Buller fat docs not differ from tallow
In nny essential way. it is animal fat
nntl Is elaborated from the feed given
the vow that produced the milk from
which ll is separated. One cow will
turn the fnt In her feed to butter fat,
and another will store It up in her
body. Tho one cow will be a good butter maker and the other a poor one.
It Is now pretty generally conceded
thul milk is elaborated largely during
the process of milking. That It is sep-
nrtited from the blood In some way Is
certain. Feed u cow more of the elements thnt go into the composition of
milk, mid she will become fat. The cow
thnt gives poor milk will fallen much
easier than the one thnt gives rich
According to recent exhaustive experiments made hy Professor Ilaecker,
It does not make much difference wlpit
is fed to a cow If sho is given a plentiful supply of sound feed. Give a cow
nil she needs of sound forage and
grain, and she will produce to the utmost possible limit butter fator tallow.
If she turns her feed into milk nnd butter fnt. she Is u good cow. If she turns
it Into tallow, she Is a poor cow from
tbe dairyman's slundpoint,
If our correspondent will follow this
plan, he will got more butter fnt from
his cows, but not richer milk. His cows
will give more milk than they would if
poorly, fed and every 100 pounds of
thai nifll; will contain just as much
butter flit as Is natural for a given eow
lo give. If sho gives 3 per cent milk
and only 100 pounds n week, tbo milk
will contain three pounds of absolute
buller fat, or about three and a half
pounds of butter. Peed her so she will ;
give double the quantity of milk, and
that milk will give double the quantity
of butter fat. but will not he richer
than the smaller quantity, Tbe way to
get more buller fill is to feed the cows
better. Just what it ls best to feed
them is u matter on which learned doc-
tots disagree nt this moment However, It Is safe to feed them enough, even
if lhe ration Is not quite balanced.
The Queitlon of Food ond lu I'l-ena-
ration Fur Dulry Cnttle,
Since dairying has becume one of the
prlnclpar agricultural pursuits, especially in the east, tho supply of fodder
or the raising of forage claims almost
the first consideration of the farmer,
says T. II. Mitchell of Cayuga county,
N. Y., in American Agriculturist. We
have tried on Oakland farm the various forage crops recommended and
hnve come to the conclusion that tbey
nre all too expensive on account of the
necessary labor. We except rape for
pigs and sheep and ensilage, which we
have for some years past used practically thc year around. Ensilage is just
ns valuable in the heat and drought of
summer as ln the winter's cold. If
when you cut your new crop In the fall
any Is left tn tbe silo, cut right on to
the old. We are now feeding out of the
smaller of our two silos shown In the
illustration corn put In in 1000, and ft
Is just us good as that put In lust fall.
When building the first silo, place it
convenient for n second one. You mny
need It. Tho photo shows that ours are
bo placed, and It Is uot necessary to
move from one to the other while tilling, This Is not only u saving of time,
but allows one to get much more forage Into a given space, as it has tlmo
to settle. I believe that every one Is
agreed thnt ensilage corn must have
cultivation nnd light and not be planted too thick. But I believe that It Is
not settled thnt grain in the silo is of
as much value as the same grain dried
and fed as grain. My experience leads
un; to believe that by chemical action
or hy somo unknown cause to me, nt
least, the corn put into the silo with
the stalks Is not of ns much value as
the same would be If dried, ground and
fed aB grain. This subject our experiment stations should Investigate more
We nre so well convinced of this that
this spring we shall plant and raise as
good a crop of Held corn as we can,
striving especially to raise n large
quantity of grain, remove tbe ears and
cut the stalks Into thc silos. If it
proves a failure, we wlll lot tbe renders of tbls paper know why. But we
don't Intend that It shall prove wrong.
On the contrary, wo believe It a decided step In advance, the serious question being how to get the stalks Into
good ensilage If put iu as dry as they
must be if left long enough to mature
the grain. Our Idea Is to have plenty
of ensilage for winter feed, enough for
summer and some left over. Wc will
do nwny entirely with green forage
crops, us they cost too much labor and
do not produce enough per acre.
The hot wave Inst summer struck the
dnlry portion of Iowa more severely
than any oilier part, snys Tho Creamery Journal. A study of the weather
maps Issued from lies Moines during
the summer showed that n strip running south by southwest from near the
iior.theast corner of tho stnte received
uo rain at the critical time when the
corn needed It most, and consequently
this strip Buffered extremely. This winter l'armers living iu this strip are feeding shredded corn fodder almost exclusively, tho high price of grain and
of bran and even of hay being practically prohibitive. What Is tbe result?
Not bankruptcy, There Is not enough
protein la the fodder ration to make
lunch more than half n mess of milk,
but (he feci! cost of this half mens Is
practically nothing compared with former methods of wasting the fodder.
And, furthermore, n big fraction of the
fanners when they did feed grain fed
It so '.'unbalanced'' that the milk yield
was little greater than It Is this winter
with no grain.
To Feed a Cow For Milk.
We keep a few cows, so I am most
Interested In tbem and want to make
It it specialty, snys "Subscriber" ln National Stockman. Our cows look welt
aud do well. We feed onts nnd corn
ground together; also sugar beets, some
of which weighed seven nnd three-
quarter pounds. They ent them very
greedily, u peck npleec. I would uot le
without tbem. Also fed timothy nnd
clover mixed. We hnve no fodder, but
It Is equal to grass If It can be saved
green. I have a bo*-: for Bnlt on the Bide
of the born, where the cows can help
themselves. I think the best time to
feed a cow for milk Is when It Ib n calf.
Peed It well, keep it growing, vigorous
and healthy until It gets to be a cow,
nnd you can be assured of a good cow
If tbe stock Is right. I think as milch
of keeping a calf In good order na I.do
a cow. Everything Ib stabled nnd ln
stanchions. In this way we keep two
more than formerly in the snme apace.
It ef line From the Cow Manger,
Cows which nro producing milk under heavy feeding should not be compelled to cat up forage too close. Let
them eat what they wlll readily, then
glvo what ts left to young stock. They
will do well on' It, nnd the cows wlll
not be compelled to eat material which
la not palatable.
The Stemlj   Milker.
From testing the best milking cowl
are found out, and It ls wonderful .how
animals are discovered to be good milkers wheu a whole twelvemonth is taken,
whlcb yet havo never yielded n very
large quantity at one time, while, ou
the other hand, animals which have
yielded an enormous quantity over a
short time nnd have hud great notice
taken of them are really poor milkers
when their total yield for twelve
months la summed up. Tbe cow that
yields a moderate quantity over nine,
ten or eleven months is the sort to havo
aud breed from, nud it is only by a record that this is found out. in addition
to this, the quality of the milk must bo
taken Into account, and It Is desirable
to test thla from time to time nlso.
To cure n hard milker couttne the
cow so that you will be safe tu Insert
the tent bistoury Into the teat, then cut
the small opening lu four opposite directions, Thli will make a free opening nud nllow the milk to run on Its
own nccord for n short time, hut It will
soon close, leaving an opening sutll-
clent to nllow tho milk to come easy.
In fact, milking In Itself will keep ft
from closing too tightly. Above nil
things have your instruments clean,
also the tent. [
vi lint Ktlli Clover.
Wo are asked to give, some of tho
reasons why clover kills out. Under
ordinary conditions clover Is a biennial. Mown in the spring, it lives
over the next winter, produces its
lead tbe Bocond year and th>n iIIub,
its mission being ended. .Somo
plants, failing to produce wed, will
live over another season. This fuel
oxphilns the loss of tho clover to the
muny who do not know tlie history
of tiie plant.   Many ileitis are killed
out tho first, sum ■ by the too groat
affection of the uul'so crop. Then, if
pastured heavily the Ilrsl, fall, muny
fields will winter kill for Want of
cover, while oa clay soils alternate
winter thawing and fitwalng will
heave tho soil uud brcuk the mots. ■
Meant nurse crops and plenty nf cover the first winter will usually insure
tbe crop*
