Coal and Oil.
Rossland Miner: J. Fred Ritchie, PL.
S , uud Ross Thompson have returned
to tbe city from an exceedingly interesting trip through a section of East Kootenay. As has been stated in the Miner,
their quest was coal and oil. In this
this they were exceedingly successful,
both minerals being discovered and located.
Ten years ago Mr. Ritchie learned of
the existence of coal in the district Irom
which he bas just returned, which may
be said lo be in the same zone ou wbich
the Crows Nest Coal company's measures are situated. At that period tbere
was no transportation for hundreds of
miles in any direction and Mr. Ritchie
did not turn to account tbe iuformatiou
in his possession. For some time, bow-
ever, he has contemplated going into
the country, aud finally put this into
effect a mouth or six weeks since.
heaving the Crows Nest road at Elko,
Messrs. Ritchie and Thompson took a
pack train into tbe particular section for
which tbey were head'-d and set out iu
quest of the reported discoveries,
Tbe trip was long aud arduous. Tbe
country had every earmark of virginity,
not a blaze of an axe or other indication
being found to evidence tbat tbe foot of
man bad ever trod tb» district before.
The country was rough and tbe party
bad many trying experiences, one of
tbese occurring wheu Ritchie and
Thompson became sepjrated from tbe
balance of the pack train and were 24
hours without food, part of tbe time in a
pouring rain.
Ultimately their quest was crowned
with success. The coal lands were found
and „the mineral found to exist. Tbe
coal Ib pronounced by Mr. Ritchie to be
as good quality as any iu British Columbia—in fact, to be exactly similar to tbe
Fernie product of the best grade. Tbe
lands adjoin tbe reserves of the Canadian Pacific railroad.
Oil was also found In such quantities
and under sucb conditionals gave promise of large deposits wben tbe ground
was properly opened up by deep borings.
The oil is light iu color and weight, resembling rather a fine quality of lubricating ail iu consistency and odor. It
burns freely, differing in tbis particular
from the oil found a few hundred miles
further east in Alberta. Samples of tbe
fluid brought out by Messrs. Ritchie and
Thompson have been examined with
keeu interest.
The Fernie Strike.
Fernie Free Press: Much was expected from tbe purposed meeting of the executive of the Associated Boards of Trade
at Fernie this week, but the members of
that august body failed to put in au appearance. Whether their absence was
due lo lack of interest in tbe Fernie
labor troubles or from interested motives
it Is difficult to say, but oue thing is almost certain tbat tbey missed an opportunity of manifesting their usefulness to
the people of British Columbia. Fernie
bas always taken an interest in the silver-
lead question aud assisted in every way
to help West Kootenay in matters in
which they were vitally interested, even
when the Issue at stake made no material
difference to tbe prosperity of our town,
but now that Fernie is passing through
deep waters they manifest an indifference
that is hard to understand.
The town has been very quiet and tbe
strikers are behaving like gentlemen.
Some excitement was shown Wednesday
and Thursday ou receipt of a telegram
from the east stating tbat about one
hundred and fifty meu were on their way
from Penusylvauia to take tbe places of
tbe men on strike. Fully five hundred
people were at the station yesterday to
meet tbe train, but they were plesautly
disappointed as only two of the supposed
"scabs" put iu au appearance. Upon
being questioned one said in regard to
their coming to Fernie lhat Elias Rogers
had wired them them that the strike was
over and that all their expenses to B. C.
would be paid. 140 men accepted the
oiler and started for Fernie, but at
Medicine Hat tbey learned that the
stiike was stilt ou aud oue hundred got
off at Frank, the rest coming to Michel-
He said that the men would not think of
starting work at Fernie till the strike
was over.
Work at Michel aud Morrissey is proceeding with the uiun.si rapidity iu order
to supply the B C. market with coke,
and this they mm m In be able to do as
nearly nil the smelters in West Koolenay
have resumed operations.
Constable Barnes Has Been Relegated
to the Rear.
Constable  Forbes  Has   Been   Appointed Chief of the New
ICranbrook Herald. I
Though the mill* of (lotl |.iin<1 sl..u ly.
Vet they ki liitl ext-eedlujf small.
A patient public has at lust been vindicated, and • change has taken place ln
tbe police arrangement of tbis district
that will meet with tbe hearty approval
of all who have the welfare of this sec*
tion at heart. W. H. Bullock-Webster,
chief constable for tbe Kootenays, was
called to Victoria relative to the dissatisfaction that has been growing throughout this district over tbe police department. As a result a change baa been
made and Lestock Forbes, formerly constable at Fernie, aud senior officer in
point of service in this district next to
Constable Barnes, has been appointed
chief of police of the district of Soutb
Bast Kootenay, wbicb bas been cut off
as a police district by itself. Hereafter
he will have supreuie authority in police
matters In this district, aud will make
bis report direct to Victoria.
This chauge places Coustable Barnes
in a subordinate position under Mr.
Forbes, as an ordinary coustable. Heretofore, by a few specials and a newspaper, Mr. Barnes bas been characterized
as Chief BarneB without reason, for at
no time did he occupy the position ns
chief, that beiug beld by Mr. Bullock-
Another tbiug, this change will do
away with the loud uniforms adopted by
a few constables without authority, aud
also tbe big revolver and loaded cane
display. Tbere was a brief era of tbis
kind of yellow back novel display of
"bad men among desperadoes," but in
tbe future this will be dispensed witb
and the dignity of the law aud tbe character of the officer will be considered
sufficient to secure the enforcement of
police regulations.
In Cranbrook, as well as in all other
partB of the distiict, there will be a feeling ol relief and satisfaction. Tbe people bave confidence iu Mr. Forbes, aud
tbey will rise aa one man and suy of
Chief Bullock Webster, "Well done, thou
good aud faithful servant."
Mr. Forbes' Record.
I,estock R, Forbes was appointed provincial constable at Silveitun in 1M..7
He waa transferred tb Kuskonook during
construction of tbe Crows Nest railway,
and upon completion of the railway be
returned to Silverton. He was transferred from Silverton to New Denver,
and from New Denver to Three Forks,
and back to New Denver, on appointment at chief license inspector for tbe
Slocan district, ln January, 1900, be
volunteered for service iu South Africa
and served there for oue year witb tbe
Canadian Mounted Rifles. He returned
to Canada in January, 1901, when the
regiment was disbanded at Halifax. He
received a medal and four clasps in recognition for his services in the Geld.
Returning to British Columbia he took
up tbe duties on the police force and
was stationed at Lnrdo. He was transferred from Lardo to Kimberley, where
be served for some time until sent to
Ferule during the strike for duty under
Chief Constable Bullock-Webster. He
was appointed chief coustable of tbe new
district of South Knst Kootenay ou the
14th lust.

Spokesman lievlew: "When our

Lord Salisbury's Resignation.
Manitoba Free Press: For more than
a year rumor bas bad It that Lord Salisbury would retire from the Premiership
either when the war was ended or the
King was crowned; and so when the
news came that he had laid down the
great responsibility which he has borne
so long and worthily, does not come as
a surprise. Ills retirement from tbe
Premiership may be well regarded as
tbe closing of a notable chapter In tbe
British history. His figure will loom
large In the annals of the laat half of
the nineteenth century; and generations
yet unborn will quote ar^d discuss Queen
Victoria's last Prime Mlnlste-; as they
quote and discuss bis great ancestor,wbo
served Qaeen Bllzabath foruo less than
forty years as her chief counsellor. "We
have" wrote Lord Salisbury's great opponent, Mr, Cladstone, years ago, "a
Prime Minister whose ancestors where
similarly employed, to the great benefit
of England, ten geneartlons ago" It la
a far stretch of years from Ldward VI.,
(ir,47), toKdward V11 , and from y leeu
Ell/.abeth (15*!8) to Queen Victoria; yet
the Cecils were the chief advisers of all
these monarebs, and of Queen Mary,
whose reign came between that of Edward VI. and Queen Elizabeth.
William Cecil first Earl of Burleigh,
lived contemporaneously with Shakespeare and Sir Walter Kalelgh and ilr
Philip Sidney and Francis Bacon. His
decendant the present Marquis, has
shared the stage of public life with
Palmerston, Derby, Russell, Disraeli
and Gladstone. Wellington, Peel, Cob-
den, Bright, Dickens, Thackeray Tennyson—tbese were living forces ln his
time. His career has been a remarkable
one. For many years he has been the
head of an overwhelming majority ln
the constituencies of the United Kingdom, the undlsputdd Chelf of a great
party, tbe leading figure ln British national life, keenly aware of the currents
and cross-currents, the ebbs and flows
of the policies of all tbe world-powers,
and controlling the domestic govern
ment and the foreign policy of Great
Britain with a master hand; yet all tne
time he has been a recluse, avoiding
publicity and ever eager to seek the
seclusion of his laboratory and his books.
His public utterances have always been
characteristic of tbe man; lofty ln tone
original, seldom lacking a touch of sardonic humor, and often rising lo heights
of far seeing statesmanship. In tbe
opinion of some he has exerted too con
servatlve an lnfluene upon British progress during the present era of swift-
moving transition; but when the future
historian comes to sum up bis career,
It may be that that career will be placed
by the side of that Cecil wbo served
Queen Elizabeth with such patient prudent statesmanship and so rendered
such distinguished service in tbe build-
lug of the Empire- Lord Salisbury's
latest utterance In regard to tbe Empire
and Its future, his weighty warning
against any attempt to hasten the operation of the forces which are working
out the destiny of the great Britisb
confederation of self-governing nations
to which we belong, deserves to be
treasured as a counsel of the highest
wisdom by all who bear part In the
Kmplrc's public life.
Mr. Balfour's sucesslon to the Premiership has little more claim lo be regarded
as a surprise than has bin uncle's retirement. He bas been a pretty successful
leader of the House of Commons; and
although not a man of commanding
peronal ascendancy, he Is tbe most
available conservative leader. It Is nol
unlikely that he will enter the House of
Lords leaving the leadership of the
Cjmmons to Mr. Chamberlain. Whatever tbe aspirations Mr. Chamberlain
has cherished in regard to tbe Premiership Mr. B iltout's succession gives them
their quietus; lor tbe new Prime Minister is by many years lhe junior of the
Colonial Secretary.
Remarkable Railway Building.
Four hundred and fifty uieu, working
nine hours iu a driving rain, moved both
rails of the Burlington and Western
road ou 125 miles of track lu a single
day, thus converting a narrow guage into a broad guage track, says tlie Etail
way World. Twenty-eight crews of 16
men each, working an average of four
miles each, accomplished lite lent without the abandonment of any regular
Sunday train and without uny serious
delay. The work Involved tbe drawing
aud driving of 200,000 spikes. Bach rail
was moved lo\ inches to a row of
spikes previously driven in the ties.
All save four spikes In the inside
had been previously drawn, ;all those
on the outside being undisturbed, and
over these the rails were lifted to their

Death of L Uarrant.
Cranbrook Herald.
[.asl Saturday afternoon I. Garrant,
who has beeu hoveling on the hriuk of
the grove for weeks, stinted for his home
at Carleton Place, Out, accompanied by
his wife and son, find niece Mian Grace.
There wus tittle chance of him living
through the trip, but he had reached

und oue desire, aud lhat wad to go lo

watched over hiniday midnight through
all his loug illness, anticipating every
want uiiil administering to his needs
with loving kindness, felt that although
the attempt might prove fatal, yet thia
one absorbing wish should be gratified.
Rvery arrangement was made for the
poor man's comfort, ond Saturday the
sad journey was undertaken. All went
well until the next day, wheu there was
a sudden chauge for the worse, and at
Swift Current a priest and a doctor were
summoned. He failed rapidly, aud on
Monday, at Ignore, i.)o miles west ol

Cranbrook Herald.
l*.ast Saturday there were two games
of lacrosse played on the home grounds
between the junior and -seniors of Fernie
aud Cranbrook. The Herald prefers to
give the Fernie account of the game and
with that idea in view takes the one
given by the Tree Press of that city,
which is as follows:
A good day's sport awaited those who
boarded the train for Craubrook yester-
lay, The juniors played a hard battle
against tbe "real thing," and did well to
hold it down to a tie, while the easy victory of the seniors, without the assis-
ftnee of our three stars, Black, Miller
and Beaubier, was ns surpttslng as it was
The juuiors lined up at 3:30 as follows:

The game was very even throughout
and it would be difficult to judge which
played the better lacrosse. During the
first quarter Gordon Johnson succeeded
in landing the rubber, and from then
till almost the close of the game no
goals were scored, Many fine rushes
were made by both teams, aud had tbe
shooting abilities of the home boys beeu
better, the score might have been different. They were successful tu one Instance, toward the end, in putting the
ball between the flags, ami tbe game
ended one goal each.
McPeak, Hendeison and Nevin ployed
the star game for Craubrook. The Fernie boys played very even, and It would
be difficult to pick special players.
Lawrence, Cody and Todhunier probably might be mentioned.
The senior  game   was called  for 6:30
and  it  was   a   beautiful   evening  for   a
game of lacrosse.

The first quarter's play was the best of
the game, as duiing tbat time no goala
were scored. The piny was about even.
It was a hot, fast st niggle, and both
teams played good lacrosse.
The tide turned iu the 2nd and things
began to come our way. MacGuIre
scored by a clean shot, and afterwards
Reynolds threw the ball within the
flags, the goal keeper stopping il with
his foot while behind the sticks. The
Craubrook boys protested against the
declsio of Umpire Johnson that it was a
goal, but the referee upheld tbe decision.
The 3rd quarter was a continuation of
the good work. The splendid combination of Reynolds. Flett and MacGuIre
was a puzzle to the Cianbrook defense
aud every time tbey got the ball the
crowd held their breath. Two more
goals were scored this quarter, Mac-
Guire and Flett doing the needful.
During the 4th Reynolds again scored
and the gome ended 5-0 iu favoi of the
Coal Town.
The game wos a rough one throughout
and a little too much temper was shown
by both sides. The referee was very exacting and did much to check the slugging tendency.

Crows Nest Coal company has handled
affairs in their coal reserves, but if the
following from tbe Nelson News is true,

The news went out that tho
Count Conrad Damonolf must die.
A few days before the best surgeon
in Moscow said be would recover,
but now tbat same surgeon said be
must full. A strange change had
come over him. lt wns not a fever,
but, rather, a consuming of vitality.
He was failing fast, nnd no art of
medicine could revive him. Some
I bought he must bo bleeding inwardly, but others knew better thnn tbis,
because in that ease there would be
some outward symptom. The wound
itself was healing, but the disease
wns not. Tho physician and the
priest wero now in daily, and tho
former almost in hourly, attendance. The surgeon was Kopani,
and the priest was tbe humpbacked
Thus lay the count upon his bed,
weak and faint, but at present almost free from pain, nnd an old woman was his only attendant, the
priest having just left. It was just
after noon. Tlie dying man had
just taken a powerful stimulating
draft, though it was against the injunctions of Iho priest, as bo said
that by such means the invalid
might die bereft of sense nnd thus
lose his hold upon salvation. He
bad just taken this draft when there
was a low rap upon the door. The
woman arose lo answer tlie summons. She conversed a few moments with the girl who had knocked, and when she returned to the
bed she announced thut lturic Nevel wished to enter.
"Let him come in," whispered
the count.
"Never mind," he interrupted as
tho woman commenced thus to expostulate. "Let bim come in. By
heavens, if be is my enemy let mo
see bim I It may servo to arouse
So the woman went to the door
again, nnd soon afterward Rurio
Nevel entered the apartment. Ho
slopped lightly, noiselessly, to the

ere he could distinguish objects by
the subdued light of tbo place. By
and by, however, be overcame the
difficulty, and ho started bnck in
horror ns he beheld the features of
his adversary. How pale and sunken! How deathlike and ghastly!
The count noticed tho movement,
and ho noticed the look.
"Count Damonoff," spoko the
gunmaker in a low, solemn tone, "a
few days since I heard that you wero
recovering, nnd I thanked God.
But today they told mo you wore dying, and I have come to ask tbat I
may take your band ere you pass

Maker and my Judge, I would rather lie down here and die for you
than have you pass away with a
curse of me upon your soul or on
your lips. Forgive mo for what I
iinvo done and never again will I engage in such a wicked work. For
my own life, it is my country's nnd
my mother's and I havo no right to
throw it away, and my antagonist's
life is tho sacred property of God,
which I have no right to touch but
in self defense.   Forgive mc.j

"Enough," returned the count
warmly. "This was my holiest wish,
though pride has kept back its utterance. Oh, 1 feared you would
glottt over my death — tbat you
mould be glad when I was gone."
"No, nol I should have been a
monster then!"
"There are mnny such. And yet
I wronged you by tbe thought. But
I could not help it."
A moment more pnssed in silence,
and then tho invalid resumed:
"Tbere is one reason why I should
like to live—I should be prepared
for a better life. Since Death has

"She's gone," said tbe count nfter
ho hnd recovered somewhat from
tho deep emotions which had been
stirred within his own soul. "Sit
down here beside mo."
Ruric obeyed lhe request, and after he had seated himself bo gazed
sadly iuto tho sick man's face.
"Say, Ruric," the count asked,
while nn eager look overspread his
lace, "wast true whnt Kopani told
mc—lhat you overcame Demetrius

"I did," the youth replied in a
"But you did  not disarm him?
Vou did not fairly take his sword

"I did, Conrad."
"My soul, is  it  possible?    And
where have you been ull your life?"
"In Moscow und in Spain."
"And yet obscure.''
"Never  mind  thai   now," interposed Ruric.   "I have something of
more interest.    Do you—  But you
will pardon me for what 1 may sny,
for 1 assure you 1 mean it all for

"Speak on," said Conrad, at Iho

enviously over the guninuker's nobly developed breast and shoulders.
"Then, first, 1 have just como

"(io on. I may hnvo felt a pang

Tho count started, and a strange
gleam shot from his eyes.
"Go on," he uttered.
"Then  listen.    Before you  ever
came to my shop tbe duko had solemnly promised  Rosalind that she
sliould receive no more trouble from

"His estate is running out, and be

"Ah, 1 see it now!"
"Tiie duke had proposed himself

But, see! Why starts Ruric so

"What is il':" nsked the count,
startled by the strange event.
"Hold!" whispered Rurie in a
frantic lone. "You were recovering

"From lliis wound?"
"Yes. I was gelting well fast,

"I-'or God's sake. Ruric, what is it?"
"As   I   came lliis way  1  saw a
humpbacked  priest  puss out  from

"Yes, yes," returned the count,
speaking shortly and quickly. "It

"And was ho here Thursday
"Thursday? Ah, yes; be watched

"And bus ho been in attendance

"Yes—every day. But why do
you ask? Say, what is that meaning upon your face?   What is it?"
"At this moment the door of tho
apnrlment wns quietly, noiselessly,
opened, and Kopani, tho surgeon,
entered the place.
"Ha!" cried Ruric, starting toward bim and grasping him by tlie
arm. "Your patient is poisoned! A
deadly poison has been given him,
and it is even now eating bis life
"Impossible!" gasped the surgeon,
straining his eyes to see plainly who
it was that spoke to him. "Ah!" he
uttered as he became somewhat used
to the gloom of the apartment. "Is
it you, sir?"
"Aye, but mind not thnt now.
Cannot you do something for the
count?   lie bus been poisoned."
"It cannot be!"
"By the hopes of my salvation,"
cried Conrad Damonoff, starling up
to a sitting posture, "ho speaks the
truth! That accursed priest! Oh,
Olga, Olga, I never dreamed that

"But wbat is it nil?" the surgeon
asked, guzing first upon Rurie nnd

"Listen," said Ihe'guninaker. "I
have my suspicions. But, mind you,
ihey are founded on facts, and tho

Last Thursday evening he was with
(he duko in private council, and ho
came from thence directly to this

The surgeon started slightly, and
then he bowed his head. A few moments he remained thus, and then
he leaped up and clasped his bunds.
"By lhe living God of nil things,"

As lhe surgeon spoke be hastily

took a powerful emetic. The woman was sent for, and wben she
came she obtained warm water. Tbo

at a time, at intervals of about five

In a recent article I called attention to the desirability of cutting
huy at u comparatively early stage
of maturity.   In this connection    it
may be of interest to have some
notes from lhat well known fanner
nnd Institute speaker, Mr. Henry
(ilcndcming of Manilla, Ont., in regard to his experience with a new
plan of curing clover hay. Mr Glen-
donning snys that he prefers to cut
clover hay when it is in full bloom,
or when the blossom contains tho
greatest amount of honey. Out in
tho morning after the dew i.s off,
that which is cut in the forenoon
may bu raked up immediately after
the noon hour, and put in cocks.
The mower should not be run later
than four o'clock p.m., and all put
inlo cocks before the dew falls, lliis
hay should be put into the barn the
next day, and well tramped into the
mows. This plan can bo continued
from day to day until all is stored
in the barns. Three things must be
borne in mind in curing hay by this
First—Do not cut the grass until
dry in the morning.
-Second—Do not allow the fresh cut
hay to lie on the ground over night,
exposed to dew or rain.
Third—If any huy should get wot
with rain, let it stand iu tlie cocks
until thoroughly dry before taking
to the barn.
Last season Mr. CJlcndenning put
up some 75 to 80 tons of hay in this
way, nnd reports that it came out
of the mows, in the finest condition
ho ever saw. It was as green as when
put into the barn, and the leaves and
blossoms were all attached to the
stalks. It appeared to have dried
out without much heating, as all of
the ulsike blossoms were pink, aud
tlie red clover blossoms wcro from a
pink to a light amber color. If any
great, heat had developed in the mow
the blossoms would undoubtedly haVQ
be-in ot u dark brown color. No
signs of mould were visible and the
hay was very free from dust. No
salt, lime or other preservative was
Two of the mows in which the hay
was stored are 22x25 ft., with an
average depth of HO ft. of hay. These
mows are tight floored with double
inch boards over basement stables.
Another mow is 24x;j(j ft., with a
depth of about 24 ft., and the floor
on the ground.
The outsldes of all tho mows are
of inch boards without battens, with
cracks between the boards averaging
about three-eighths of an inch, just
such as are usually found in the ordinary bam. Tho sides of the mows
next tho drive floor were open. The
hay which consisted of red clover,
alsike and a little timothy, was
equally good in all parts of the
mows. Mr. Glcndonnlng ways that he
knows of three other farmers who
have followed this system for several
years with equal success, and it
would seem well worthy of trial by
our farmers generally.
Among the advantages of this
method of curing clover nro : (1)
The saving of time between cutting
und storing in the barn : (2) The
fact lhat nil tho leaves and blossoms, which are the most valuable
portion of tho plant, arc left on the
hay, instead of being lost in the
field as is often the caso when the
ordinary manner of curing is followed : (8) The hay is much cleaner
and brighter than when cured iu the
old way.—F. VI. llodson. Live Stock

Unquestionably there i.s nothing
connected with the business of farming which gives us as much annoyance, or which is as difficult to get
on a satisfactory basis as farm labor. There are various causes which
tend to bring about this slate of
things, nnd perhaps none moro so
than the unreasonableness of employers, Socialists tell us that the
world could produce enough for its
needs if every man worked but half
the number of hours that is now considered a working day; but unfortunately on our CantMian farms it
seems necessary for the farmer and
bis men to put in each day a solid
day's work all the year around, and
even then lt is difficult to hold one's
own among the l-een competition, ln
these days when the competition between capitul and labor have become
so tense that a little extra strain at
any time may bring about the most
serious results, it is a matter of no
small importance for farmers to consider whether something more cannot bo done to put the labor question, as it allects the farm, on a better   basis.
In au ideal condition of affairs, the
employer would never ask or expect
his men to do more work than was
right or reasonable, and wheu hiring
would in all cases be ready and willing to give a fair aud just remuneration for services to be performed,
and would endeavor to cany out a
system of farming that would give
employment to his men In the slack
part of tho year. The employed also
would not take undue advantage of
the employer becauso of a temporary
scarcity of labor; would never shirk
hia work, but would bo faithful in
doing his duty, whether his employer were with bim or not, and would
in all cases be ready to put forth an
extra effort  at  a busy  timo.
It is scarcely to be expected, however, that such an Utopian state of
affairs will ever exist, while frail
human nature remains as it is, but
Iiy tho exercise of a little thought-
fulness and mutual forbearance, the
relations between employer and employed may be much improved. In
considering thu pies l ion of farm
labor as it eiiects iho operations and
profits of the farm, and the home
life of tho dwellers there, morally
and socially, it will generally be
found ou large and moderately large
farms, that the employment of married men boarding themselves, is altogether preferable to boarding men
in the house. Outside the question
of profits, there is the all-important
consideration of home life,—the home
life cannot by any possibility be
what home life ought to be, when
the farm house is nothing better than
a boarding house. It Is not too
much to say that the future life of
many a bright boy or girl in this
country has been a failure through
too little attention having been paid
to their yearning for homo comforts.
One of tin? first things to be aimed
at iu operating u farm in this way
is to employ none but good men,
and then to do everything in reason
to make their lives comfortable.
Fanners have no right, eWn if they
have the power, to mule their men
work from early morning until after
dark at night, and looked at from
no standpoint than thni of personal
gain, il is a Very decided mistake.
Incidentally it may not be amiss to'
sa.v   lhat     lhe   fanner  outfit not.  to
aslv his sons to do what no reasonable man would expect his hired men
to do.
Tben again it is a matter of the
first importance that the men serving shall be well treated. Their
houses if not largo should at least
be made comfortable. The gardens
attached should be large enough to
enable them to grow vegetables for
their own use, but not so largo as to
take up too much of their time, and
if a f(-w apples and .small fruits can
bo grown on the ground, they would
be moro appreciated than by those
who can afford to buy them. A cow
is almost a necessity to a family on
the farm, and an arrangement should
be made to have it pastured, but on
no account wintered by the fanner.
It is too severe a trial of human nature to allow a hired man to feed
his cow from his employer's meal
box, and is almost suro to causa
Tho faculty of getting on well with
hired men on the farm is well worth
cull i vat ing. My own e.-vj.trienco
leads mo to know tbat if you engago
good men, there is little trouble in
keeping them, if we, as employers,
do our part. It is our duly to try
to make them comfortable as circumstances will permit. If we do so wo
Ujay expect faithful service and from
good meu we will get it. Let the
rides be strictly laid down nnd adhered to, and on no consideration
keep a man after his time is out. if
he has at any time given a word of
However, owing to the conditions
in which most farmers nre placed,
tho larger number of farm hamls are
Unman led men who are boarded in
the house, and this is most likely the
state of affairs that will continue for
some time to come. It is a difficult
question to deal with, and as far
as both employer and employed are
concerned, it is a most unsatisfactory slate, largely arising from the
fact that in many sections thero is
comparatively little employment for
one half the year; and just so long
as tho fanner hus to look out for
new men every spring, and good men
find themselves discharged at tbe first
sign of winter or before, it will remain so, and no amount of philosophizing will put it, right. The rupid
extension of winter dairying during
the past few years has done a good
deal to ensure steady employment the
year round, but conditions are still
unsatisfactory In many districts.
In conclusion It mny be said that
as a general thing the best men are
the cheapest. Try to get good men

Live Stock Commissioner,
A ITrlnkl* ut Much Importanoa and 1'roflt
t* Itrvkrcpert,
Many swarms abscond after being
hived a few hours. This is because
their new homo is not comfortable,
and it is probably too hot. A swarm
of bees needs plenty of air. After a
few days when there are eggs and
brood in the new hive they will rarely desert it. When hiving r nwarm
we raise the front ond of the hivo
with corner blocks, d, made of inch
stuff 2$ inches wide and fi inches
long, sawed diagonally from on* corner to another. Theso blocks nro
also used for constructing the entrance wheu needed. We then slip
tho small end of the extension board,
b, under tho bottom board of tho
hive, and tho two little pieces of
iron hold it firmly in place. This
makes a platform on which to dump
tiie cluster of bees, when they will
quickly run into the hivo Instead of
running all over tho ground. Next
put tlie shade board, c, on top of tho
hive, and the bees are about as comfortable  as  they  can  be made,    and
are almost always sure to stay and
make it their new homo. If the
evening proves to be a littlo cool,
remove tho corner blocks after sundown, but leave the shade board on
for a few days at least.
Almost any colony will cast a
swarm in a good season, unless managed on the non-swarming system.
Wo should have all things ready for
the happy time. Old hives must be
cleaned out and more new ones mado
if necessary. Tho old swarm catcher
should bo overhauled and kept in a
-convenient place,  and honev    boxes
should be in readiness for tho first
flow. The honey harvest is short, so
don't let tho bees bang around idly
while the nectar is evaporating in
tho atmosphere.
Before the bees swarm out of the
hive, they fill themselves with honey
and have enough to last them at
least three days. Swarms usually
weigh from six to ten pounds. It is
estimated thnt there are about 5,-
000 bees to a pound. The queen
lays as many afl 2,000 eggs a day,
or nbout twice her own weight.
Adjacent to my apiary are several
large maple trees about CO feet high.
Swarms frequent ly go to the very
top and cluster, entirely out of
reach. They remain two hours or
more, and then depart. With tho
queen traps, however, it is a delight
to  hive swarms.
When the swarm issues, the queen
cages herself and cannot leave with
the bees, the swarm will cluster on
some tree, when the apiarist cau replace the hive with an empty one
and place the trap with the queen on
the new hive on the old stand. Tho
bees will remain from ten to twenty
minutes, when they will return and
enter the new hivo. The nail can
then be withdrawn, releasing tho
queen, and sho will run in with tho
swarm nnd the hiving is done. No
swarm catcher needed, no sawing oft
limbs, and no trees to climb, no need
of losing any swarms, ami no queens
to clip, and get lost by entering tho
wrong hive. 1 would recommend
thnt every beekeeper use them.—American Agriculturist.

Major Frederick Stanley Maude,
to whom has fallen the distinction
of receiving Prince Henry of Prussia
at Niagara on behalf of the Governor-General of Canada, went to Ottawa about a year ago to take up
the important post of Military Secretary—a position which Lord Minto
himself filled some years ago, When
Lord Lansdowne was Governor-Gen-
rcral. Major Maudo has done all his
' soldiering with the Coldstreams, and
was Brigade Major of the Brigade of
Guards for some time before going
to Canada. Tie belongs to the well-
known Irish family of which Earl
De Monlol' is the titular head, nnd
one of his near relatives is Mr. Cyril
Maude of the llayniarket Theatre.
Major Maude has proved a great success in the Dominion, and no doubt

From the Echo, Dominion City, Man.
Recently while chatting with a reporter of the Echo, Mr. Orlin I'ost,
a well-known farmer of Grumidge,
Man., gave the following story of
live years of great suffering from that
most painful of diseases—rheumatism.
Mr. I'ost said:—"Thero are few people, unless they have been similarly
afflicted, can understand how much 1
Buffered during thoso live years from
the pains of rheumatism. They wore
times when 1 was wholly unable to
any work, and to merely attempt
to move my limbs caused the greatest agony. 1 tried several doctors
but thoy seemed quite unable to cure
me. Then I tried several advertised
medicines, that were highly recommended for this troublo, but thoy also failed to bring the longed for release from pain. As those medicines
failed mo one after the other, I began to look upon the trouble as incurable, and was almost in despair.
At this time some friends asked mo
why 1 did not try Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills, and I decided to make at
least one mure effort to obtain a cure.
I knew my case was not only a severe
ono, but from the failure of other
medicines a stubborn ono, and 1 determined that the pills should have a
fair trial, so 1 bought a dozen boxes.
1 look them according to directions,
and beforo thoy were gone there wus
a groat improvement iu my condition
bul 1 was not fully cured. I then got
another half dozen boxes, ami by tho
time the third of them wero emptied
I had not nn ache or a pain left and
was able to do a good hard day's
work without feeling any of the torture that had for live years made my
life miserable. You may say for me
that I do not think there is any
medicine in the world can equal Dr.
Williams' rink Fills as a cure for
rheumatism. It is several years since
my curo was effected, and as I have
never since had the least sign of the
trouble, I think I can speak with authority.
When such severe cases as this aro
entirely cured it is not surprising
that Dr. Williams' I'ink Fills have
mado such a great reputation
throughout the world for the cure of
other diseases duo to poor or watery
blood. Paralysis, St. Vitus' dance,
anaemia, consumption, dyspepsia,
palpitation of the heart, nervous
headache, female ailments and neuralgia are among the other troubles
they havo cured in thousands \d
cases. Only the genuine pill will
curo—substitutes never cured anything—and to avoid substitutes you
must see that the full name "Dr.
Williams' I'ink Pills for Palo People."

St. Hippolyte, Que., June 23.—
(Special)—Mr. I,. A. Faquin of this
village has written for publication
the following letter. In it ho speaks
for both himself and his wife. Tho
letter reads :
"After much sufficing I had become
unable to wort. 1 had Kidney
Trouble which gave me great pain.
"My wife had usod a box of Dodd's
Kidney Pills for a similar trouble
some time before, and us they had
completely restored her to good
health I mado up my mind to take a
treatment myself.
"I was nol. disappointed, and I can
now say that I have tried and proved
Dodd's Kidney Pills to be the greatest medicine iu tin? world.
"We are now both quite well and
able to do our work as well us ever.
"We have found Dodd's Kidney
Fills to be a remedy, whieh saves us
the pains and troublo which wo often
see in others, who are languishing
and incapable of attending to their
"Wo keep Dodd's Kidney Pills constantly on hand, and use them occasionally if we feel the slightest indisposition. We have used altogether
between us six boxes.
"Perhaps I should explain why I
write this letter. It is because T feel
thero may be many others who huve
not heard of Dodd's Kidney Pills, or
who having hoard, have not given
them a trial, and to such 1 would
say 'Give Dodd's Kidney Pills a fair
trial and you will agree with my wife
and myself that thoro is not any
other such medicine to bo had." '
What Dodd's Kidney Pills have
done for Mr. Faquin and his good
wife they will do for any man or woman who suffers from Kidney Disease

Aside from the senlhnentul aspects

destruction is to be deplored un economic grounds. It is fair to assume that they, like other birds,
have their places in the economy of
nature. Some of them which live on
offal and scraps thrown overboard
Irom vessels act. the part, of scavengers, and help to keep the waters
wholesome, while others, which feed
en fish, are useful guides to fishermen. AU these birds are tireless flyers and aerial acrobats. I have often
been interested in the antics of gulls
who hud evidently had all the lish
they cured for. After dinner tbey
amuse themselves in sporting with
their scaly victims. J have often seen
a gull plunge into tho water and
emerge triumphant with a herring
in his claws. Flying to a considerable height ho would drop the fish,
whicli would be deftly caught in midair by one of his swooping fellows.
Time aad again havo 1 -seen this
manoeuvre repeated until one fish
would perhaps pass through half a
dozen pairs of claws before it finally
reached tho water. The sea birds
nest on rocky cliffs along tho rIioios
of the Groat Lakes and on rocky
islets. In some places they are so
numerous that the human inhabitants gather anil eat gulls' eggs as
nonchalantly as we do those of the
domestic fowl. But gulls' eggs will
soon be a rarity, for the sea birds
are rapidly decreasing in numbers,
more's the pity. — Kuvenspur, in Toronto -star. __

Fred Beaver, better known as "Prof"
while under the Influence of liquor on
Saturday evening was walking down
the mainline of the C. P. R. just as the

whistled for him to get off, but "Prof."'
failed to relallze bis danger and walked
straight into the engine with tbe result
that he Is now minus a leg. It was
thought for some moments that he was
killed but this proved to be Incorrect
upon examinaiion as was found that
aside from one leg being badly mangled
there was no otber serious injury.

Kaslo Kootenain; Mr. J. Halpio returned from Marysville, East Kootenay,
this week, where he has been since June
1st at work on the Emerald group which
is owned by him. The group consists of
two full claims, the Emerald and the
Phcenix, which he located in 1807 and
has held ever since. They are located
aboutlS miles from Marysville and about
5 miles from the survey of the new
railway which will build along the
mountain upon which his property Is
situated* There are three ledges on
the claims all of which are about r> feet
and upon one of these a forty foot tunnel has been run which give foot for
foot depth on tbe lead and has shown
up some very fine copper ore.
Two other tunnels, 20 and 15 feet,
bave been run besides an open cut in all
of which ore has been struck. Assays
from the ore taken out of the long
tunnel give 88 per centcopper and from
the other two, from twelve to twenty
percent. Mr. Halpln has great faith
in his property iand says that as soon
as transportation can be had he will
have n shipping mine. The Malachite
group adjoln'ng the Erie raid on the
north west has a verv tine showing of
the same grade of ore. Thls-jgroup has
been lately crown granted by the owners, Messrs. Griddle, Thompson and
others of Neieon*
The Mackay group is the name of another very promising group which Is
located on the same bill. All these
properties are copper propositions and
are only held back by lack of transportation.

It would be ensy to explain naff*
thorite's peculiar temperament after
the modern fashion by reference to
heredity and environment, says Paul
Elmer More ln Tho Atlantic. No doubt
there was a strain of eccentricity ln
the family. Ho himself tells of a cousla
who made a spittoon out of the skull of
his enemy, and it Is natural that a descendant of tho old Puritan witch
Judge should portray the weird and
grotesque aspects of life. Probably,
too, his native tendency was Increased
by the circumstances that surrounded
his youth—the seclusion of his mother's life, his boyhood on Lake Sebago,
where, ns he says, he first got bit
"cursed habit of solitude," and tbe
long years during which bo lived as a
hermit In Salem."
But after all thoso external matter*
and even tho effect of heredity so far
as we cau fathom It explain little or
nothing. A thousand other men might
have written his books if their sourco
lay In such antecedents. Behind It all
was the demonic force of tho man
himself, the everlasting mystery of
genius inhabiting In bis brain and
choosing hint to be an exemplar and
Interpreter'of the Inviolable Individuality In which lie tbe pain and glory ot
our human estate.

Agricultural Land Near Marysville.
lt ia perhaps uot generally known that
nbout a mile and a half north of Marysville there is a fine stretch of farming
land of about 21100 acres. This laud consists of n valley through which a stream
runs during lhe spring nnd until about
the middle of July, causing the grass to
grow five to six feet high. It is believed
thnt this land could be farmed without
irrigation, except what It naturally gets
in the spring and early summer. This
ground is covered in part by limber
leases, but to actual settlers pre-emption
privileges would oe expended, but the
laud could not be purchased.

The greatest pie display of which
history tells us took place In 1509, at a
dinner given after the funeral of Al-
brecbt IV., king of Bavaria, at the royal palace In Munich. There were seven
grent pies upon tlie table, representing
the seven nges of the world. The first
pie wns made at apples. It represented
Adam and Eye, the tree of knowledge,
the snake and the apple. The pictures
wore made upon tho crust with confections of sugar and almonds.
Another pie was made of doves nud
bore a wonderful representation of
Noah's ark In Its center, while round
the edge wero placed figures of every
created thing. A key went with this
pie lu order that It might be determined what theso figures were Intended to
Upon the crust of these wonderful
pastries appeared tbe tableaux of Abraham sacrificing Isaac, David slaying
Goliath, tbe ravens feeding Elijah,Samson tearing open the Juws of the lion,
and tlie lust aud most wonderful ot all
the pies when opened was found to
contain four living birds, which all began to slug.
