E. O. Smith Does Not Enow What
Oour86 to Pursue.
E. C. Smith, local member, left Fort
Steele last week for Victoria, to be
present at the opening session of tbe
bouse. As stated in last week's Miner,
Mr, Smith has a golden opportunity to.
make himself solid with the people of
this district If he follows tbe right
coarse daring the life of tbe preseat
government, and his actions will be followed by no small degree of interest by
bis constltnents. From the following
interview tn the Nelson News this week
it would appear tbat Mr. Smith does
not, aa yet, know his own mind In regard
to his conrae daring the approaching
"Am I going to support the Prior
gorernment," said Mr. Smith In response to a query, "well I hardly like to
aay. It depends on so many things, and
I will bare to see bow matters really
■re at Victoria before I Anally decide.
Yon aee I am not a politician and I was
elected by the people of my district to
snpport certain measures. Now Colo-
ner Prior has agreed to come to time
on the two per cent tax question, he
bas ailed all tbe vacant seats in tbe
house and I understand ne ls opposed to
any more land grants being given and
ls also prepared to deal justly by tbe
mining Industry, so that If he really
me.ns to have a business administration I might support bim, but Its a little
too early for me to say for certain what
I will do. I do hope we are not going
to have another session like the last
one. I think the politicians and faction
men should take a rest and let tbe
affairs of the province have a chance
t really do, and I am almost prepared to
support any administration that will
help ns all ont and put an end to tbe
foolish fighting and waste of time that
we have bad during the last few years.
1 am a great believer in British Columbia, but I have no use for politicians
I want to see the country go ahead tbe
way It should, and 1 think If all the
members dropped their personal am-
bltlons and private grudges and get
right down to business that we conld
help out affairs here a great deal. I've
been elected to support certain principles, and I'll support them and whoever
stands for them, and my constituents
are behind me In this matter to a man.
I'll know oetter what steps to take after

▲ Little Off.
A correspondent to tbe Rosslaid
World, writing over tbe name of "A
Morrissey Miner," in summing up the
strike situation and commenting on the
rumored settlement early last week
had the following: "By a peculiar Incident that might have connected with
this whole affslr is tbat Saturday evening, just after pay day, but before the
publication of tbe Dally News of tbe
S5ni, which told of the settlement of
the strike, tbe Morrissey saloon keepers got np the ■■anlmoua report that
tbe strike waa ended, urging the men
therefore, to remaiu, In order -hat tbey
might get the last earnings of tbe men."
The rumor of the settlement of the
strike originated In Ferule and was con-
a med uy the commission appointed to
adjust tbe u.faculties, after the executive of ibe district union had agreed to
tbe terms of tbe settlement. Tbe saloon keepers of Morrissey had nothing
whatever to do with the reported settlement, aa the first Intimation tbat a
settlement was near was given ont In
Morrissey by miners from the Morrissey
mine The above correspondent should
confine bimse f to facts, and not give
vent to bis spleen in such absurd fablea.
Jape On Strike.
A buncb of 60 Japs, who have been
removing a big sand bank on the Oreat
Nortnern railway near Emo, went oat
on strike tbe first of the week.   These
Ji ps are  brought Into the States by a
large employment company In Seattle
aud   re firmed ont to tbe Great North*
em railway at $1.10 a day, the 10 cents
of which goes to the employment company.   Tbe company also furnishes lood
to tbe different gangs of Japs at a lower
rate than tbey  can   purcnaae It elsewhere, and so long aa their labors are
Ck.nflued to the Sute* the Oilentala are
satisfied.    But It is  different   on this
side of the llae, as the Japs are compelled to go down Into their pockets for
the duty coargaa on tbelr  rood auppiy,
and tbey are now protesting to be taken
back to the land of trusts and mergers-
It la to be hoped the little fellows win
tbelr point, aa British Columbia already
kaa more than her share of Mongolian
labor. _______

Reconsideration Vote Is Taken
and Struggle Ceases.
Morrissey Mines are Shipping
Steadily and Men are
The big coal strike Is off.
tiast Saturday a reconsideration vote
was taken by the miners of Morrissey,
Coal Creek and Michel on the terms of
settlement accepted by tbelr executive
committee nearly two weeks ago,
which resulted in Morrissey and Michel
upholding the executive In a most emphatic manner, while tbe Coal creek
men were almost unanimous In their
vote for a continuation of the strike.
The arbitrary action of tbe Coal Creek
miners Is accounted for by the large
number of Slave who were held lo opposition by one or two leaders, but why
these leaders should have desired a con-
tlnnatlon of the straggle It ls hard to
conceive, unless they in turn were Influenced by a powerful pressure brought
to bear by certain outsiders whose Interests would be materially furthered
by prolonging the strike.
The vote taken laat Saturday resulted
as follows:
For   Against
Michel        139 15
Morrissey         62 28
Coal Creek         34 130
Total    ..
Majority for work, so.
As a majority vote was all that was
accessary to decide the struggle one way
or the other, the men accepted the decision, the agreement waa signed Monday night, and Tuesday, with the big
strike a thing of the past, preparatory
work was inaugurated for opening the
three big collieries that bad remained
Idle for the past 49 days, which Idleness
resnlted la a loss of thousands of dollars
to tbe company, the men, and business
interests In this district, and an almost
complete paralysis of the mining and
smelting industry of tbe province.
Tnesday morning witnessed a scene
of great activity around the mines at
Morrissey in the way of preparing for
the opening of tbe mine on the morrow.
Pipes were connected, machinery gotten
In running order, tracks and cars placed
In condition, tbe fans started on their
work of clearing the underground workings of gas, and Wednesday morning a
large force of men, satisfied that their
struggle had not been In vain, with toola
and lamps made tbelr entrance into the
tunnels that had boen silent for so long,
and the work oi getting out coal was on.
Owing to tbe extended length of tbe
strike many of the men were forced to
seek other fields of employment, and at
present only about half the force that
was employed before tbe trouble ls
now at work. This condition Is being
rapidly obviated, however, as every
train Into the town Is bringing back the
old men, and they will be further reinforced by a large number of men from
Danamulr's mines at tbe coast, wbo are
expected to arrive any day. It will be
out a qnestlon of a few short weeks
when the full iorce of men will again be
at work, and before the end of the coming summer Morrissey will take the
lead as the banner camp of tbe Crows
Nest Paae Coal company In point of output and extent of payroll.
On Thursday the first shipment of
coal waa made from the mines at this
place, consisting of 10 cars, and as the
mine train rolled over the bridge and
Into tbe Great Northern yards a feeling of thanksgiving took possession of
all who witnessed tbe sight. It meant
that once more the fuel supply center
of British Columbia was In
active operation, and this In turn presages prosperity for the men, prosperity for the company, prosperity for
every man engaged in business In South
Bast Kootenay and prosperity for the
iravince. The smelters will again be
operated to their full capacity, which
• Ul mean a resumption of work at the
mines tn West Kootenay and the Boundary country which were forced to a
partial closedown owing to the inability
of the smeltets to handle the ore. This
revival In business will mean employment for hundreds of wage earners in
the province, and the coming summer
will go down on record as the most
prosperous in the history of British
Great credit ls due the conciliatory
committee appointed by the British Columbia Mining association for tbelr untiring efforts toward tbe consummation
of the trouble, aud In this single in.
stance the association haademonatiated
what a power lor good it may become
in this province If conducted in future
on tbe same principles It is now being
And In this connection It may not be
amiss to commend the miners of Morrissey for their conduct daring tbe
struggle just ended. Without detracting In the least from the true principles
of unionism, they carried themselves as
men fully cognlzont of the responsibilities placed upon them, and at no time
was there a murmur of Impatience or
the slightest trace of lawlessness among
them. The example set by them might
well be emulated by the big majority of
the laboring masses, for it Is such conduct tbat retains the confidence of tbe
public and wins out iu tbe'end.
The big coal strike is off.
Chris Foley's Opinion.
Chris Foley, one ofthe members of the
conciliation committee and himself a
practical miner and member of'the W.
F. M.. expressed the opinion to the
Nelson News that the settlement arrived at would prove effective for the
full period of three years. On the
whole he considered that the men had
gained material advantages by the
agreement. Of course they had not secured everything they had asked for,
but the greater part of their demands
were conceded. The Michel and Morrissey men made gains in tbe matter of
pay, whilst a alight reduction was enforced at the Coal creek mines. In
this case, however, highly paid men
suffer a little reduction, whilst the men
at Morrissey and Michel, who were not
making such eooa wages, get an Increase. Further, other advantages
were secured In the matter of conditions
of labor, which, in Mr. Foley's opinion,
will more than make up to the Coal
creek miners what they lost *y the dl
rect cut in wages. If both sides to the
agreement live up to their undertakings
Mr. Foley thinks there need be no fear
of labor troubles In that section for
many years to come. At tbe time he
left Fernie the Coal creek miners had
not officially given In their adherence to
the agreement, but he anticipated they
would do so, as It would be fatal to tbelr
Interests to stand out.
The settlement of tbe strike is a victory for good government and common
sense. The prolongation of (he trouble
was bad for tbe men, bad for the company and bad for the public at large.
There were hnndreds of men ready and
willing to go to work after the differences had been adjusted, yet a number
were held back by a falae idea of the
true status of affalrsyand a proper conception of their duty aa men and members of a union. Ii is needless for either
the company or the men to talk about
their rights unless they are willing to
discuss the differences and make concessions. Arbitration does not mean
an arbitrary settlement. Men In making
demands are often unwise and unjust,
the same aa a company may be by cer.
tain declarations as to policy, etc. In
tbis strike, as The Miner understands
It, aa soon as a defined statement of
grlevancea had been submitted to Mr.
Tonkin, the manager, he gave every
evidence of his willingness to meet tbe
men on a common plane and discuss the
differences. When this was done, It
was not such a difficult matter to come
to an understanding as the company at
no time assumed an arbitrary stand but
seemed disposed to give tbe men fair
and honest treatment. As a result,
barring the delay caused by nnreason
able restrictions on the part ol a small
minority, an equitable adjustment was
made of the difficulties by mutual con-
cessions belne granted.
When men and managers understand
tbat an absence of trouble Is mutually
beneficial, the need of strikes would be
little Indeed. How much better it
would have been in this case if the difficulties could have been aettled without a cessation of work. Let the men
figure their losses and then they can
fully realize the aerlous results of a
strike. Of course there are times when
corporations are In the hands of mana -
gera who refuse to listen to reason, and
deny that the laborer bas any rights
that the corporation ls bound to respect. But each was not tbe caae In
this coal atrlke. Tbe wage table ls
ample evidence of the fact  tbat  the
pany was willing to pay good wages.
i  tbe  Investigation  of tbe concilia-
committee substantiates this state-
it,   Tberefore, If the men had found
e way to have brongbt about a free
liberal dlscussloi)   of   tbe trouble
lthout   a   strike,   and   a   settlement
ted In ibis way,  how   mucb   better
ould   have  been  for them, for the
mpany, and for many other laboring
throughout British Columbia.
The Miner believes in unions and good
wages But It believes, and Its editor
knows from years of experience as a
nnlon man. tbat thousands of union
men have suffered In the past by tbe
lack of wisdom and judgment on the
part of the leaders. There ls uot one
man ih fifty who ls properly constituted
to be at tbe bead of a union. It takes
Intelligence, tact, honesty, knowledge
of conditions and a mind broad enough
to see both sides of a question. The
man who would advocate unreasonable
demands oh the part of the laborers ls
an enemy of labor, and the leader who
wtnld favor turmoil to ieep himself in
the limelight of publicity and activity
Is a curse to mankind and a handicap to
unionism and a burden to union men.
Members of a union canifot be too careful in their selection of leaders. Be
wary of Ihe plausible talker, who would
seek the place for tbe power It gives.
Look for the level headed man of common sense among yon. He ls in t sense
your business manager. Upon his judgment and action much of your prosperity may depend In crucial periods. You
need a man in every sense at such periods, for he may cause or avoid a disastrous strike. And mark yon, the man
of the right kind will do more for yon
with a company than the smooth
tongued Individual without judgment.
The settlement of the strike means
a resumption of vrork at the mines and
a revival of business In the towns depending upon these Industrial institutions. Here in Morrissey the difference will be noticeable at once. Deprive a place like this of a $30,(wo payroll at one fell swoop, and the result ls
bound to be paralyzing. But that is
now a thing of the past. The payroll is
now on and prosperity must follow.
Gathered In Prom Many Different
The weather the past week has been
typical of South East Kootenay—a con
glomeratlon   nf   warn,    balmy   days and
snow storms.
By virtue of a recent state election in
Vermont, the prohibitory law bas been
annuled, and for the first time In 50
years booze will be legally sold over tbe
bar. It's been a long time between
drinks in that state.
Cranbrook local talent is now rehears"
ing the "Pirates of Penzance," and will
put the show on the latter part of this
month. Here's hoping the members of
tbe company will not meet the same
fate of the average story book pirate.
K. B GUlts left Wednesday evening
for his former home in Carberry, Man.,
where he will take charge of his father's
farm the coming year. Mr. Gillis had
been a resident of Morrissey only a few
months, but during that time had made
many warm friends, and his absence Is
felt by all who claimed acquaintanceship with him.
Foss & McDonell have been moving
their outfit and men to Michel tbis week
preparatory to starting work on tbe
contract for levelling the site for 350
new coke ovens. Tbe work will necessitate the removal of 14,000 yards of
rock, and under favorable conditions
will be completed within four months.
One advantage the contractors will
have Is that the rock quarry ls already
opened, which will mean a big saving
In time and rr-oney.
The Miner stated In Its Issue of two
weeks ago that Eugene Walter's hotel
narrowly escaped going up tn smoke,
the fire being caused by a defective
chimney. We were misinform nd as to
the origin of the blaze, which was
caused by a thimble dropping from the
chimney In one of the rooms, and In
justice to the bricklayer wbo built tbe
chimney we gladly make this correction.
Another pleasant dancing party was
given at the Australian hotel Tuesday
night. Music was furnished by local
talent and refreshments were served
during the evening. One of the pleasing features of the gathering was a solo
by Mr, Allen Farrell, entitled, "She
Was Happy Till Her Pipe Went Out,"
which proved that Mr. Farrell ts a vocalist of more than ordinary ability.
A song and dance turn by H. L. Stephens also contributed very materially toward the evening's pleasure.
There ls talk of organizing a Knockers club at the mine, as there are quite
a number of members there who will
find it Inconvenient to attend the meetings here now that the strike is over
and work has been resumed. There
ls good timber there for a club, and
ta the event of one being organized the
office of Worthy Knocker will quite
likely be filled bv Harry Simmons or
Arthur Berrldge, either one of whom
would fill the high position with credit
and dignity.
Items of Qeneral Interest Prom
the Coal Center.
Jim Bryan, one of the carpenters wbo
erected tbe first buildings at Morrissey
mines, came down from Fernie tbis
week. He is working on tbe new cburcb
at present.
Filtz C;cbor and bride arrived from
Wisconsin last Sunday andareaow comfortably domiciled in one of tbe cottages. Tbey bave tbe best wishes of
tbe entire community for a prosperous
and happy life.
The first shipment of cosl for nearly
two months was made Tbnrsday from
these mines.
T. B. Morton was In Fernie on business Thursday,
Poor Fritz! The small fry wouid hoi
let up on blm until he bought tbem off.
After two nights of charvarl be wanted
peace, so he had to disgorge.
Mrs. W. F. Tranter and daughter left
here for a visit to her parents in Alberta on Wednesday. Sbe will be gonf
some few weeks.
A pleasant card party was given by
the gentlemen at Trilby cottage od
Monday evening. About 30 of our
young blood gathered together and a
good time was put in by all.
Tbe new Methodist church Is now under construction and will be completed
by the middle of the month. This will
be a great boon to all God fearing people wbo live here.
Paying a visit to Morrissey town last
Sunday we noticed the passionate shirt
had disappeared and a lovely manve
colored one had taken Its plaoe.
Quite a number of our young men
took in tbe dance at the Australian
hotel on Tuesday evening.
The funeral of Mrs. W. Robinson, wife
of W, Robinson, fire boss at the mine,
took place at tbe Morrissey cemetery
on Saturday, March 28. The Rev. Connor conducted the services at the bona*
and at the graveside.
Tbe new firm of Trites-Wood Company took possession of the store at the
mines on Saturday last.
H. F. Martin, superintendent of the
mines here, has been very busy the past
few days putting on men in and around
the mines. Quite a lot of changes have
taken place, and many new men taken
on. During the strike the camp had
become nearly depopulated, but everY
train Is now bringing in men glad to get
back to work. At this rate Morrissey
will soon be the first class camp of the
valley again.
Charles Armstrong, who went to
Blalrmore springs some time ago suffering with rheumatism, ls now folly
recovered and back at the mine town;
Phil Christopher, a prominent member of the Miners' union, will leave
next week for West Kootenay where he
will take up his permanent residence.
Mr. Cbrlstopher was a member of the
miners' executive committee during the
late strike, and took a prominent part
In all the proceedings of the different
meetings held by the commissioners,
and to him probably more credit ls due
than to any ene man for a final settle,
ment of the trouble. He Is a level
headed man, well versed in the principles of unionism, and although be lab'
ored untiringly In behalf of his fellow
workmen, did not let prejudice blind
him to the fact that the company also
had rights to be respected. In Mr.
Chrlstopher.s departure this section
loses a good citizen, the Miners' nnlon a
faithful and impartial officer, and wherever be locates the best wishes of a
host of friends will follow him.
Clean Your Yards.
Constable Tranter has been appointed
sanitary Inspector for Morrissey and
tbe mine with Instructions to supervision the cleaning of yards and cesspools,
and be should be given every encourage-
ment In tbis work by tbe citizens of
Morrissey. Owing to the unusually long
winter the accumulation or slops and
rubbish ls something frightful, and It
ls Imperative that all refuse matter be
done away with before tbe warm aun
of the spring and summer converts the
filth In some of the yards Into a hotbed
of fever breeding germs. All pigs now
running at large over the town must
also be penned np, and anyone refusing
or r.eglectine to comply with the sanitary laws as laid down by Constable
Tranter will be summarily dealt with.
May Build In Hayden.
Eugene Walter of tbe Windsor hotel,
left Thursday morning for a brief visit
to the new town of Hayden, and should
he find conditions favorable may erect
an hotel In that place. If Mr. Walter
does conclude to embark in business on
the other side, his friends here will
wish him success, bnt It Is to be hoped
that be will continue to make Morrissey his home. He ls a good citizen and
the town could 111 afford to loae him.
Mud Slide.
Mud slides on the west end of the
Crow bave seriously retarded the ran-
nln; of passengers the past week. The
east bound passenger has conseqnentlv
been running many hours late, and
the train tbat should have arrived Monday evening did not get In till Ute Tnesday morning.

ttmiiAL 1902. bl to S. S. McQn Itoun
Deacon Hardy liad no more thought
of keeping a pet parrot than of Installing a pig in tlie parlor, but he wasn't
proof against cii'cuuislance. His sister
out in Ohio "went and got ou hen, dying bed," ns he explained it, and lie
was sent for to liiU her a last farewell.
There waa only one thing ou her mind,
and she proceeded to btate it. She had
owned a parrftt for many years, and
She wanted to he assured of its future
bpfore she closed her eyes. The cat,
which would also be left behind, could
get along some tray, nor did she care
what liecume of her quilt frames and
tialirons. but that parrot must find a
home with a Christian family.
The brother cheerfully offered bis
refuge and promised to bring l'olly tip
in the way she should go. When the
funeral was over, he started for his
home in the east with the big tin cage
Ut tow. The parrot had been silent for a
week,and the deacon's heart had wanned toward her. He figured It out that
she realized the situation and was doing
B proper amount of mourning. The
deacon's wife welcomed l'olly as a relic
t*f the dear departed ami was solicitous
tbat she should feel perfectly nt home,
wheu something happened. The bird
suddenly found her tongue and cried
"What iu blank alls tills blank crowd
The deacon wns hoeing potatoes In
bis back yard, and when Aunt Mary
Btaggered out to him nnd told lllm the
awful   news   he   couldn't   believe   his
"You are n little denf In your right
ear, you know," he finally replied, "ami
must have got things mixed up. I
know that my dear sister Ellen never
taught thnt bird anything hut words
out of the good book. Let us go in and i
They entered tlie kitchen, where Polly wns roosting on the back of n chair.
As they stood before her she cocked
her bead nnd snluted them with:
"Now I lay me down to Bleep."
"Didn't I tell you so?" said tlie deacon ns his troubled look wns replaced
by a smile of relief.
"I thought it was swenring, but 1
must bave been mistaken," reluctantly
admitted Aunt Mary. "Well, I'm glad
on't. It would be jest uwful to have
n swearing parrot around."
Three days later, as Polly sat on n
perch  near the  gate,   Mrs.  Simpklns
came along on her way to the store
and stopped to look at her.   She had
scarcely come to a halt when she was
saluted with:
"Who In blank nre you?"
It was a stunning blow, and  Mrs.
Simpklns   felt   her   head   swimming
round and round.  Before she could recover the bird yelled out:
"Let's have another beer!"
Then  Mrs.  Simpklns screamed, nnd
Deacon Hardy und his wife rushed out
to the gate to see what was the mat-
ler.   When  she  repeated   Polly's  lau-
fcuage, or as much or it us »hc dared,
tbe deacon smiled and replied:
"It's another mistake, i'ou never
heard a parrot talk before, and you
got bis words twisted up. My dear
deceased sister told me over aud over
again that lie was a religious bird and
that he never said anything but"—
"Honor thy father aud thy mother,"
Interrupted Tolly.
"Didn't I say so!" exclaimed the
dencon as he rubbed his hands together.
"Amen! Amen! Amen!" screamed
the bird.
Mrs. Simpklns had to give It up,
though ns she continued on her way
she couldn't help but wonder whether
she wus growing deaf pr absent mi ailed.
Polly hnd no more surprises that
dny, but on tbe uext, as the 6tnld nnd
dignified Tillage Justice of the pence
was passing along ou tlie opposite side
of the street, a voice cried out to him:
"Hello, you old villain! What In
blank alls you?"
Tbe justice paused nnd looked
around. He was alone on the street.
Tbe words eould have been addressed
to no one else. He crossed over tbe
road and saw Polly on her perch.
Just then Deacon Hardy came around
the corner of the bouse with a boe in
bis band.
"There's such a thing as contempt
of court!" solemnly observed the justice.
"What's the matter?" asked the dea-
"Your parrot has called me names
and used profane language."
"But she couldn't have. She knows
nothing but good words. My dear deceased sister spent nearly all her time
for live years In teaching this poor
bird to"—
"Brethren and sisters, let us all join
In tbo singing," solemnly announced
"Any profane language about that?"
asked the deacon over tbe fence.
"If It wasn't her, It wns some boy
hidden around here," replied the justice. "I guess It was a boy, and I'm
sorry I laid It to tlie parrot I never
thought much of parrots, but I ain't
saying tbat a religious parrot ain't all

It  Is  a  Science  That  la  Nut   Understood by All Who liadertake it.
The cheeseuiaker. should lie more acquainted with the scientific reasons of
curing than ninuy profess today, and
there is room for improvement in this
line which is pretty well recoguized by
the dairy schools and experiment stations. The growth aud development of
the bacteria which cure tbe cheese
are something tbat can be understood
bo well tbat it is possible to control the
whole process. The man who makes
cheese for the *uiark,-i should know
how loug to hold the cheese to give it a
certaiu flavor and when the curing
sbould cease. It is Impossible for any
farmer or factory to produce uniform
grades of cheese otherwise. On some
farms the cheese produced varies so
much tbat it would be impossible to
Bay that the different grades were
made by the sume man. This 1b not
due so much to tbe difference iu the
cows nud. milk us lu tbe process of
mnklng and curing. Some cheese
should be cured much faster than others, and again the reverse Is the case.
Unless one understands the reasons for
this it Ib Impossible to produce like results. Every ckecsemaker "has found
thut In spite of bis best efforts the
cheese of one day's work Is stiff and
dry und tbut of the next day too moist.
Iu such a case different treatment is
demanded. The moist cheese will cure
much fuster than tbe stiff aud dry
cheese, and If tbe two arc bundled
alike uniform quulity cannot be expected. .   j
In tbe curing there are four factors
or conditions that must be considered
nud brought under control. These are
temperature, air, moisture and light.
Unless we know how to control these
we cannot expect to produce the highest results with the cheese. Temperature probably is tbe most Important
and intractable of these factors, and it
Is something that requires persistent
study. A proper temperature in the
curing room will often produce good
cheese even wben other conditions nre
against the work. Tbe temperature
sbould at tlrst be kept between 03 and
TO degrees and lowered then gradually
to 00 degrees. In tb« spring of the year
the temperature should be kept higher,
as tbe cheese should be cured faster.
In winter sometimes the temperature
toward tbe end can even descend as
low as 50 degrees, but the checseinaker
must be very careful at such times.
Good ventliutlon ls essential and also
a certain amount of light. The regulation of the light bears an important
part in the making of cheese,, and we
do not yet know all that It will do for
us. The moisture of course must be
controlled, but tbat ls a matter for
each one to solve for himself.—James
Hldgeway In American Cultivator.
I huve two old cows past their usefulness, above the average for milk,
oue about 800, the other 1,000 pounds,
writes a correspondent of Rural New
Yorker. How much meal will It do to
feed them running to pasture, and If i
continue milking them will the milk
and butter pay tbe extra feed needed
to fatten them?
Answering the above, II. E. Cook
says: Henry Wnrd Beecbcr when
asked his experience In feeding hogs
snid: "I pnid ?2 for n pig, fed blm ?10
worth of cornmeul aud sold u'.in for
$S.. I made $d on tbe pig, but lost on
the meal." This ls my experience feeding such ktud of stock. These cows
have been milking machines, as evidenced by their weight tind age. They
can be fattened, but much time and
grain will be in demand. Wc sometimes have a similar case, and we lose
money feeding rather than have a cow
leave the farm In poor condition. In
fact, one cow fifteen years old now
runs nt lnrge. We dried her up last
summer, nnd sbe will on grass alone
get fut enough for Italian beef. Corn-
meal nt $27 per ton can hardly be expected to return much profit made into
beef on dairy cows. If J. J. P. feels
tbat he needs a bit of experience, he
can begin feeding four quarts a day of
corn and bran mixed, half and balf,
and gradually Increase to eight qunrts.

that they are prepared from plants

remove small ills and cause much

"When should the system be purified ? " This must in 'eft to personal judgment, and wo can only reply:
When nature deniands it. Tho spring
is generally considered the proper
time for purifying the system. We

With Coughs and Colds, and Parents Everywhere are
Prevln j the Wonderful Curative Powers of
Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed and Turpentine
When -grown people neglect their
ailments and allow them to develop
into serious diseases, they have no
ono to blame but themselves.
With children It is different, because tbey do not reuli/o the seriousness of a neglected cold nor the
means of obtain'rig a cure, and
many a child, as he grows older and
finds himself a \ictim of pneumonia,
n ousumpiion. bronchitis, asthma or
'throat trouble, cannot but sec that
his parents were responsible for tajjg-
lecting treatment when his ailment
began- in the form of a cold.
Todpy Ihe schools hove many a
vacant seat on Recount of coughs
and colds, and many children who
aie there should be nt home. What
treat"ment. are these children getting ■? Do their parents ■ realise the
seriousness   of . neglecting to cure a
cold ? Have they proved the merits
of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and
Turpentine as a cure for coughs and
colds, bronchitis, croup, whooping
cough, and all kindred ills ?
Very many have, for there is no
preparation for throat und lung discuses that has anything like the sale

that the portrait and signature of
Dr. Chase is on the wrapper. If you

A  Pope   Helsted   lo a   Saltan.
We learn from a Swiss writer of the
; seventeenth century that Pope AJeifln-
| der VIL,  whoso pontificate extended
' from !<;."» to lt;i;7. was related to the
j sultan Mohammed iv.  The connection
i between these two contemporary sov-
! erelgns is traced to one of ...ose occurrences Which in the times of Moslem
invasion and predatory aggression often led to strange blood relationships
between representatives of Christian
nnd Mohammedan houses.
The story is told by W'alliehlus, a
contemporary of Alexander VIL and
Mohammed IV. .Some Turkish corsairs
attacked and pillaged tbe castle of the
Marsilis in 3625 und carried off Mar-
gheritu, the daughter of Xanl Marsili.
and this fair lady was reserved as a
present for the Sultan Solynian. who
made her one of Ids wives. By tills
union she became tho mother of Sebin
IL, ancestor of .Mohammed I \\
From the same noble family Alexander VII. was lineally descended on the
maternal side. Llonardo Marsili, brother of the captive Margberlta. had a
son. Cesare. whose daughter, Laura,
married into the Chigl family and be-
| cjime the mother of Pablo cbigi. known

Oil in leather makes cold mitts or gloves, because oil is a
"good conductor" of co!J. That's why Indian tanned buckskin is warmer than common oil tanned leathers.
But buckskin is porous, and lets in the wind and absorbs
wet. Now "Pinto Shell" Cordovan is tanned without oil or
minerals, and it is absolutely wind, water, boil, scorch and
