Lewi.-.* m, Idaho, .March 30 ���Scenes
of diBordi : marked the day's close of
the telephone operators' strike last
evening when Superintendent Reynolds arrived from Spokane on the
train with six girls, who will take the
places of snaking operators.
Nine strikers, supported by a large
crowd of sympathizers, met the incoming train and endeavored to persuade the new girls from going to
work. After attempting to reason
with the Spokane girls, the strikers
vented their spleen on Reynolds an
his girls. The superintendent was
roughly handled by irate girls, who
wire backed by a crowd of men and
women, who jeered him as the girls
jostled him and tore his hat from his
head. Reynolds hurried his girls to
the hotel, where lib han engaged rooms
In advance.
A sympathetic stride of linemen is
proposed, the uren enly await a strike
order from headquarters. Many tele-
phone subscribers are promising sup--
port, claiming that the girls are underpaid and compelled to work longer
hour, than any other employees of the
company.
The whole force of hello girls are
parading thc streets in a body, soliciting sympathy for their cause. These
girls irave been working nine hours a
day and receiving ?2n per month. They
ask a reduction in their working time
to eight hours. This request the company has lefused and has sent to
Spokane for a new bunch of girls. _n
the meantime the telephone service is
iiadly crippled.

Funeral of Clarence Kennedy.
Borne to the graveside by six of his
old companions, members of the
Sapperton lacrosse team, the remains
of the late Clarence George Kennedy
were laid to rest yesterday afternoon.
The cortege was largely attended by
the memi-crs of the Knights of Pythias
fraternity, of whom the deceased was
a member, his mother lodge being
Coldstream N'o. 19. at Vernon. By request of the father of the deceased,
I. B< Kennedy, .M. P., services we.v
conducted In the Castle hall, by the
officers of Granite lodge No. 16, Rev.
Dr. Taylor, prelate of the lodge, officiating. The casket was almost
buried in floral tributes as it passed
from the ivsldcnce of the family to
the cemetery, where '.he graveside
service was performed by Rev. Mr.
Mackenzie, of Knox Presbyterian
church. The pall bearers were G. Re:i-
nle, T. Rennie, D. Dlgby, H. Mackenzie, C. Cameron and R. Jamleson.
.Newton,    Kan.,     March  30.���O. "A.
Baity,  an express  messenger  of the
Wells Fargo company,  was killed  by
an unknown person on Santa Fe train I
No. 115 between Florence and Newtdn
early tliis morning.    The murder was
very brutal, with roboery as the ob- j
.vet.    J-!oth the local and the through |
safes   ui re   ransacked   'and   at   least
$1000   in   money   and   seme     jewelry
taken.    The amount  the  rubbers  secured Is not known.
Tbi dead body of .Messenger Bailqy
was found at I o'clock this morning on
the flpor of the car, the head beaten
to a pulp and lying in a pool of blood.
The back of the skull was crushed and
the end of the car where.it was lying
was spattered with blood. The blood
spatters reached to the ceiling. There
wus no evidence of any struggle, the
Indications pointing to the commission
of t l.v murder while the messenger
was asleep before lie could offer re-
sistanee. Bailey was seen alive at
Strong City. At Pe,abody someone
opened the oar door fctst enough ii
throw out a package of way bills au-1
then closed it quickly.
The custom of the messenger has
been to go to sleep soon after leaving
Florence and it is possible that he di J
this last night. After he was struck
while sleeping and rendered unconscious, his body rolled to the floor, and
the robber, after beating him on th-.
head, covered it with the dead man's
coat. One blow was struck at the.
man's face with some sharp instrument, apparently a hatchet, whic.i
broke the jaw Lone. From ths dea I
man's pockets the keys were removed
and the safes ransacked-
Two theories are held by the off'-
cers. vine is that the robbers entered
the car unobserved at Emporia, Strong
City or some other point .along the line
and concealed themselves until '<
favorable opportunity to commit the
robbery occurred, and the other is that
Bailey aVnltted somebody he knew
and considered a friend.

KOREA AND JAPAN TO
AID THE 8TEVENS FAMILY
Tokyo, March 30��� The Korean
cabinet has decided to donate 50,000
yen to the family qf Durham White
Stevens, who was assassinated at Snn
I'Tvincisco by a Korean zealto. ��� The
amount that the Japanese government
will appropriate has not been announced, but it Is generally believed
that It will amount to 150,000 yen. .
Prairie Lumber Reduced.
Edmonton, March 30.���The price cf
both native and imported lumber has
been lowered since the beginning of
the new year by the lumber dealers of
Edmonton. Roughly speaking this reduction amounts to $2 per thousand
for spruce nnd about fl per thousand
on one or two lines of imported lumber. This is a reduction on the price
prevailing since June 1 of last year.
Victoria, March 30.���That the North
| Pole  is  shifting  and  the  climate  is
, changing, making the northern territories of this continent  warmer and
I northern Asia colder, is the theory to
support  which Mose  B. Cotworth,  of
York,   England,   has  been    gathering
i vidence in Alaska, from where he h..s
-returned on his way to England.  'A
. curious effect of this change is sail
may be a number of boundary difflcul-
' ties between Canada and the Unit ed
Suites, especially fn the eastern po.--
'. i'on.   The boundary is fixed by latitude, and If the North Pole, f_r really
moving, the   latitudes    change    also,
i rendering It advisable that the boun-
! dary be speedily marked everywhere
by permanent monuments,   where   It
has not yet been so marked already-
This movement, Cotsworth says, ,s
caused by the immense accumulations
j of ice along the Canadian shore of the
! Arctic ocean, and especially In Baffins
I land and Greenland.   The incalculable
weight of this inconceivable mass tp,
by lhe force of gravity, slowly pushing
"the   crust of the earth, and   consequently the North Pole and the Arctic
i circle generally, over towards Siberia,
where they are no immense accumulations of. glacial Ice to counteract the
movement.
The  result  is  that  North  America
; and Europe are getting warmer   .and
Siberia and Asia generally colder.
REPORT OF CONDITIONS
This evening a banquet will be
given to the business men and the
piess of the city at the Russell hotel
by Aid- E. J. Fader, at which, as owner of that line hostelry, he will introduce the new lessees, Messrs. Harry
F. Brine and C. G. McLean. Covers
for the occasion will be laid for a
hundred guests. Although the fact
that negotiations were under way for
the changing of the management of
the hotel was known over a week ago,
yet the actual transaction was not
closed until Friday evening, when tho
final arrangements were made and the
papers signed, by which Mr. Fader
leaves the. hotel for a period of ten
years.
The Hotel Russell is one of the most
lavishly   furnished  hotels   in   western |
Canada, modern in every detail of its |
construction and management and was j
built   at  a cost of  $90,000,  including j
the property on which it stands at the
corner    of    Carnarvon    and     Begble
streets.    The rotunda is one of   thej
largest and  most  comfortably  etpiip- :
ped Of any hotel in the province, and
has  the  advantage,   lacked   by  many
of the first class  buildings, of being
eptlrel;   cut  off   from   the   bar    and
billiard room, thus making it a comfortable and plea-ant place for    the
ladies  io  sit  as well as the men,    a
fact that the members of the fair sex
staying at the Russell have bee;i not
slow to appreciate,    The dining room
is unexcelled anywhere and the cuisine
is   of   the   very   best.   Ninety   large
rooms, fifty  of them    en suite    with
bath room attached, and all fitted with
every improvement that has been devised for the comfort of the travelling
public, comprise the upper portion of
the establishment.
The Russell has already become
favorably known among the commer-
cials who visit the coast and many of
these fastidious gentlemen have shown
their preference for the comfort to be
obtained in Westminster's new" house,
and have made this city their headquarters.
Harry Brine and his partner, Mr.
McLean, are both natives of Charlotte-
town, Prince Edward Island, the former having been eight years in the
hotel business, first being connected
with the Hotel Victoria in his native
city, later, manager of the Alberta
hotel, Medicine Hat, and of the new
Vale hotel, Calgary. His success in
managing these large establishments
induced him to start in business for
himself and he believes.that he has
the finest hotel on the continent. Mr.
McLean recently arrived from the last
and wlll assume control of the financial end of the business.
Need of Better Protection
Against Fire is Emphasized
by Robert Howe.
Nelson, ^.C, March 30.���Fifty nv n
were out searching all over the hillsides from Falrvlew eastward yeste--
day morning and half as many aga-n
in the afternoon to find a missing
child. The child was located last night
Iby Patrolman Eljis at Proctor, ani

EDMONTON ESCAPES
STRIKES THIS YEArl
Edmonton. March 30���According t
present Indications the summer of
1908 will be,entirely free from all
strikes and difficulties between the
builders and contractors and the worn-
ingmen in Edmonton. The majority
of the agreements existing betwean
the builders' exchange and the trades
ani labor unions of the city will be renewed, some on April 1, and the r;-
mainder on May 1. Negotiations have
been in progress between represent i-
tives of the builders and workmen fo-
some time, and it Is expected that tho
agreements with the various unions
will be renewed without any change
being made.
A comprehensive reiiort has beeii
made to the board of Mainland Fire
Underwriters' Association of Britisli
Columbia by Robert Howe, inspector
Canadian Fire Underwriters' association, who recently"conducted a numuer
of tests in this city and also thoroughly inspected the fire fighting appliances, water pressure, mains, etc.
His report covers eight ' pages ot
closely printed matter, two pages being devoted to suggestions and remarks for the improvement of the sys-
tf m in this city, a few of which are
as follows:
The fire limit by-law should be> extended to cover one block beyond its
piesent area.
The congested Chinese section and
the sawmills and lumber immediately
contiguous to the latter, is considered
*
a serious menace.
The water supply from ihe mains
should be increased. An experienced
man should be in charge of fire gates
in the mains, as it is of great importance that the right gate should be
opened immediately in case of neces- ,
nary.
An automatic water pressure recording gauge should be installed in -No.
1 tire hall or iu the city hall, for the
purpose of preserving records.
Water mains in the business section
of Columbia street should be increasei
from six inches to twelve inches in diameter. Hydrants are considerably too
far 'apart, and although 35 additional
have been ordered by the council, this
number should be Increased so that
there shall be a hydrant every 250,
feet in the business district and one
every 300 feet in other parts of the
city.
Some of the rubber lined hose appears to be worn and should be replaced by new; the second class hose
at Sapperton should be disposed ol
and replaced by first class material.
The hook and ladder truck is of unsuitable old style; the ladders being
very unsatisfactory. An up-to-da'.e
truck should be provided, the same to
respond immediately to all alarms
sent in from business or congested
parts of the city.
The chemical engine, which at present is only taken out when required,
should be sent out at every call.
There is no salvage corps in the
city. A suitable enquipment for this
nranch should be provided. /
New fire halls are needed near
Queen's park and at Sapperton. These
additional headquarters would neces.-
sitate more men, horses and equipment.
Each fire hall should be ��� provided
with a standard hose tower- A few
additional fire alarm boxes are required on the streets.
Three men are on night patrol duty
-without clocks or other systems ��.f
checks." Apparently Mr. Howe considers this an Important matter, for
he refers to it several times in the
course of his report, and although no
comment is made in any case, each
time the fact that there is no cheek1
system In vogue Is emphasized by thv.
aid of black face type. A
POLICE GATHER IN THE
GAMBLERS AT FERNIE
Fernle, B. C, March 30.���The police
on Saturday spent a few strenuou.
hours In rounding up a host nf
gamblers^ who have lately made
Fernle their headquarters, and when
the net was drawn in the earl? hours
of the morning, sixteen of these undesirable gentry were landed.N They
were given twelve hours to leave town
and seek pastures, new and were
warned that if vthey returned they
would be the guests of the gaol an-
thoritles for a lengthy period.
The prosperity of the immediate
neighborhood and the large monthly
pay rolls have been the cause of quite
an influx of this class, who have been
able��to make a comfortnble living by
preying on the unwary possessors of
coin of the realm.
Great Parade at Rote Festival.
Portland, Ore,. March 30.���"Tlfo
Spirit of the Golden West" is the
euphonious name of the great parade
which takes place here on Tuesday
evening, June 2, of Rose Festival
week, and this parade will be made up*
largely of special floats from tbe cities
of Washington and Oregon. From
present indications it will be tbe most
magnificent illuminated procession
that ever passed through the streets
of a Pacific coast city.
Open Work Hosiery Not Lace..
New York, March 30.���Open wor-s
hosiery is not lace wearing appare..'
The board of United States general
appraisers has so decided. The matter came up on the petition of a
western importer, who objected to
paying duty on open work stockings
as wearing apparel, claiming tine
they should -be classed as "hosle.y
fashioned and shaped," n which tie
duty Is.a great deal less. The importer's contention was upheld by the
board.

For the greater [>urt of the time ttm

1848, ;hat the Ffl* sisters are allege!
to have Brsl communicated with the
spirits at their home in Hydesvill-,
near this city. Al the time of the
memorable occurrence there were
three of the Fox sisters, the eldest not

child. From the date of the discove.-y
of '-spiritualism" the cult spread
rapidly.
Tbe lirst public appearance of the
Fox sisters was In Rochester, where

.Note, men, among them William Culler. Bryant and other literary cele-
br ties, attended seances and were
puzzled. Physicians sought to ex-
piain the phenomena by scientific
theories, but even they, according to
quotations from New York papers,
failed.
Rochester again became the scene
of action, and here the sisters had
some wonderful experiences with
physicians and editors. But it re-
maini d for Buffalo to give them the
roughest reception. The newspapers
of that city sought in every possible
way to discredit  them.    Members  of
cession of energy nnd flares up for a
little while with several hundredfold
brilliancy only to sink back Into s
drill red point that nearly escape, tha
ken of the telescope. One Interesting
explanation that has been suggested
Is that the tirfaee of Mira periodically bursts into a vast flame of burning
hydrogen, so great and powerful thnt
lt Is visible across millions of million*
of miles of space. It is a star for ths
Imagination of a Dante, yet there is
reason to believe that the time Is
coming when every star in the sky
not excepting the sun, will have to
confront a similar struggle for existence, just as every mortal being must
some time see death.���Garrett P. Ser-

The First Woman Whip.
Who was tin' first "femrae cochere?"
To the Princess de Metternlch, a lady
of quality in the fullest meaning of tlio
word, who flourished under the second
empire, this honor must be accorded,
says the London Chronicle. For in
tlie days when thc woman whip was n
very rare spectacle indeed ibis dauntless dame wns frequently to be seen
driving her phaeton through Paris.
One day two facetious youths took It
Into their heads to signal to her, "Pst,
cochere!" The prlntess entered into the
spirit of the joke. She drew up. "By
the hour," said the two. seating themselves. "Where/" "Bois de Boulogne."
She whipped up without another word
and drove off to the Bois. After a silent tour of something over an hour the
merry twain began to tire and asked
to be put down.   "Very'good, citizens,"
said the "cochere," depositing them and
the faculty of the University of Buffalo holding out her hand. "My fane is 300
and leading physicians of the city ��� francs per hour for my poor." In the

a movement of the knee joint. Numerous other cities were viaited and finally came Boston, where the Harvard

yawns like a cavern, and the stomncii
distends to hold a body even larger
than the swallower. The appetite in
fishes seems never wanting, and complete digestion With some pt them is
only a matter of half an hour." Per
this reason slaughter goes on unendingly. Usually it Is produced only by
hunger, but some monsters, like the
bluefish, even when gorged, kill for
pure love of killing.
Of the eternal warfare that goes on
beneath the surface of the waves the

dozen or more may be hatched imtf

"Tbe herrings move on the sea in

succession for months at a time. Just
so with the menhaden. A catch In a

Such numbers are sufficient -to withstand all the ravages of the natural

nu- thai the graduates of Oxford, cf
Cambridge, and of the great public
educational institutions are constantly
appointee) In large numbers to the public service.
"U'.iat have we in Canada ?   From
one end of Canada to the   other    we
have  universities.    In  my    judgment
they are most creditable to the people
of Canada.    Iu the face of great difficulties these institutions of    learning
have been established;  they are turn-'
:ng >.ut young men  by  the hundreds
every year;  and every person who is:
familiar  with  college  life   In  Canada!
knows that perhaps there are not more)
than half of the men who are trained'
by the universities���which are carried
on at givat expense to the   country,!
either directly or indirectly���who waft-
to go into business or professional life
oa their own account.    They prefer,
for one reason or another,    to   hav..
some clerical occupation;  and we all
know perfeptly well thai thousands

</����j the occupation they could not get

illations elsewhere, should go into
_��    .-.Mie service of Canada.   It would
be a good thing for the public service."
And while we thus agree with what
he said, wo think be might have gone
further and   made I,  an  offence  warranting dismissal from the service for
any  official   to   take    any    part    In
politics,  Federal or Provincial, or  lo
have any part    in municipal   affairs.
This would do away with the inter- ]
fcrence of those who consider them- :

Who   remain  in  the  competition    of

checked in this Province, of both Federal and Provincial   officials    raising
questions which only create turmoil
without effecting any material change,

'A MILITARY DESPOT.
The   E-Perten-C   of   Our    I'rlvale   la
tlie  ��'.<��� rnimi   Arinj-.
The foIlewMng Is the experience of a '.
German army private:
During the second maneuvers 1 was
Sent ou ahead to select quarters fur my !
company. Tbe police supply the names
of householders who are expected to
Shelter the soldiery, and 1 bad to de-
Cide on the number of men who should i
be assigned to each place..
It seems that our major dispatched a
courier with a message for our captain.
For some reason or other the message j
was uot delivered, Tbe next day the I
captain called me out and iu the presence of the whole company rebuked ine
for not delivering the message.
"I did not  receive any  message," I j
ventured.
"Shut yp your mouth, you liar!" he
thundered,    And   again   be   bellowed, j
"Why didn't you deliver that message,
you"���,
I told him a second time that I had
not received  any  message.   The cap
tain's temper broke all bounds.   With '
an oath he rode his horse at me full .
tilt,   hurling  filthy  names  nt  me  the
while.
When he had ridden right up to me-
I fully expected he would run me over,
but 1 dared not move���he suddenly
reined In his horse and, drawing a long
dagger from his belt, shouted, livid
with passion. "I have half a mind to
stick this through your vile body, you
schwelnhund!"
Once more he asked me about the j
message,  and  once  more  1  answered
him,
"Then   five  days'   confinement  and
bread and water be your punishment, '
you liar!" he retorted.
Ho repeated the question several
times and increased my term of iiupris-
onment each time I answered in the j
negative until my term of Imprison-
ment equaled fourteen days. I was j
placed under arrest. Next day I wns
released.
I afterward  found that tho captain
bad   discovered   bis   mistake,   but   he !
���ever referred to it���World Today.

BIRTH  OF A "GASSER."
Nnl.M-   of
lllowtiie   Well    Drowned
All   Other   Sound*.
In the Broadway Magazine is a story
by Rupert Hughes concerning the oil
wells of Texas. He tells of the birth of
a "gasser."
"II screamed like the death cry of a j
thousand  panthers."    He  says:   "Thc
long steel cable has beeu seut flying
like a twine string.   A great length of
pipe  bus  been  hurled against a tree
and wrapped around it.   The derrick
was almost hidden in a while haze.' A I
geyser of tine sand was streaming up-
ward and eating away the lofty crown |
Mock.
"Seth knew what it was. He found I
Tom, and they gesticulated at each J
other. They made faces, but no audible sound. Their voices were vaiu as |
candles in the full sunlight. Each was,!
trying to yell the same thing.
" 'She's u gasser, blowing her hea'd |
off.'
"Men gathered from everywhere and j
acted like crazy folk, working their |
jaws and delivering no message.
"They were soaked, drowned, ob- |
(Iterated in a sea of intolerable noise.
"A mile away at tbe railroad station
the passengers were equally made
dumb by the uproar. If a man wanted a ticket be had to write out the
name of the station. An engine rolled
In wltb a bell that rocked without
���ound and a whistle emitting puffs of
white steam that no one heard.
"The animals of the region were
greatly disturbed. There was much
breaking of harness on the part of
horses, and one or two galloped about
under empty saddles. Their riders
were doubtless stuck In tbe mud somewhere, head first.
"A few pigs wanderlug here and
there had sniffed at tlie noise and returned to tbeir luxurious wallows Id
tbe oily muck."

PROSPECTUS.
This company is formed for the purpose of supplying the City of Vancouver with absoluti D :lI,j
pure milk ofthe highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germs.   The need of such a m
so well known that there is no need  to dilate on this question,  the plans of the  Company
earnest support of the .Medical Society, t.ie Provincial and City Health Officers,  and every doi
City.
An option has been secured at a very favorable price on the well known Cruickshank Farm al Matsqui
close to the C. P. R., and on the route of the Chilliwack tram line.   This  property  comprises  640 a ,,    ,���
which 400 acres are in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture.   It is propo ed t
thoroughly modern barns with cement floors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a modi
bottling plant, shipping by special refrigerator car to Vancouver every day.
Tbe price to be given for the farm is $75,000, or aboul $117 per acre, a  very  low  figure cot  .,    :,.-
tlie quality of the land, the improvements and the situation.    It would  be hard  to find    a  farm       ���-,
adapted for the  purpose of a large modem dairy.   The terms of purchase are $25,000 cash, and ;.;
ance in fully-paid shares of the Company.
From tbe sum of $100,000 to be realized from the sale of 10,000 shares now offered, then   ������
$75,000  after  paying the cash  portion of the price of the farm  property.   It i.s believed that tli:.- am tint
will  be sufficient for the erection of the necessary buildings and equipment and the purchase of     ���   t 500
cows, i-specially -selected after careful examination.
THE  NEED OF A PURE  MILK  SUPPLY.
The City has no authority al the presenl  time to inspect any dairies outside the City.   The Coi
proposes to give It this authority, bo far as its own i.arns and premises are concerned, and will  ..    i   -
such Inspection at all times.   It also proposes to ask the Medical Association to appoint a committei ���   inspection.
Tlie City records of 1907 show 148 deuths of babies under twelve months' old,  and medical  mei   . ivi
stated their opinion that at least BO per cent., or say 133, of these deaths are directly    traceable   to   milk,
either drugged or contaminated at time of consumption,   lt is needless  to say that  MS does not   by   any
means cover the total number of deaths of childuen, as it is Hie num her of those under twelve montl
age only.
Out of thirty sa'mpies of milk collected in Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominion Government authorities, only two samples much 3% per cent., which Is the average Canadian percentage oi
butter fat), and fourteen of them were officially described as eit.u r watered or skimmed, and were < ��
3 per cent., which is the Vancouver City standard.
THE PRESENT DIFFICULTIES.
The average farmer and milk vendor is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous cleanliness
In every detail in the handling and delivery of milk, and lacks the necessary capital for the erection of
cement floored barns, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling machinery, and the employment of men technically trained In what is now reoognl&ed as a- business requiring
scientific care and management.
Without a supply of natural Ice, or the means of artificial refrigeration, milk cannot be kept during the
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the aid cf
powerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. Tliis drug prevents milk turning sour, even if exposed
to the sun, but this and other preservatives are very dangerous.
WHAT THE  HYGIENIC  MILK COMPANY WILL DO.
This Company will supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and purity,   it does not
propose to pasteurize milk, which at .'..est is a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that pasteurized milk is not pure milk; it Is only impure milk whici
has been renovated, and the Impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
Hie very fact that milk needs pasteurizing is in itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company nover
intends having milk on any of its premises in need of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, will be pure and absolutely clean,
and will be kept in that condition until delivered to the consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk will be aerated and cooled to a temperature of 38 degrees, pui in staled bottles and delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same temperature; this will prevent the need of drugs In summer to keep it sweet, and will also prevent the propagation of injurious bacteria in the milk, to which is attributable the enormous Infantile mortality in the
City and district.
MANAGEMENT.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as general manager.   This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries In Canada, and hais made ��
special study of all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimates of profits are some times delusive, so tho directors content themselves with pointing out
the well known fact that all the dairy farmers in the district have been for many years doing very well indeed, and the milk distributors have been doing even better, one firm being credited with making a l>refit
of $100 per day all last summer.
It is well known that in no part of Canada can cow feed be produced cheaper than In the Lowsr
Eraser Valley, and as similar companies ln the United States, which sell their milk at lower prices than
are current here, pay good dividends, there Is no reason why this Company should not do the same as
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should offset
the higher wages of this Coast. -
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The Company aim to keep 500 cows, but it will be obviously Impossible to get this number In B .vear.
and while every effort will be.made to deliver milk by June, before tne hot weather begins, it In doubtful II
more than 100 cows can ibe obtained hy then and the necessary barns and buildings completed. In sclllnp
the milk, preference will naturally have to be given to the shareholders of the Company, and It is DP
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of operation, and
as there will be probably many people of small means in urgent need of this milk, the shares have been
put at a price, and on terms, within the reach of all.

Every One Should  Have This In Mind
Because of  Future Benefits.
It is not worth while to pause to
consider whether men in olden
times placed a mercantile value on
friendship.. The significance of tlie
modern application needs no justi-
tication. Friendship pays. Acquaintance pays. That is a wise
young man who looks to it that his
acquaintances are formed with a
view to future benefit to himself.
What does it profit any man to
know a lot of men who are only ordinary mortals with no capacity for
doing anything special or anything
especially well���merely men who
do a day's work at whatever they
have to do and who spend their
leisure time at the races, baseball
games or at the theater?
The men to know are those who
have a serious purpose in life and
who go on cheerfully toward the
goal, developing tiieir powers meanwhile. At college a young man haa
an excellent opportunity for selecting among his classmates companions for a future career, but if a boy
is denied thc advantage of a college
course, with its discipline and associations, and is cast into the huge
swirl of the commercial world without training he must make his
friends and get his start there. To
begin with, it requires no mercenary
foresight. No pleasant fellow need
be slighted because he probably cannot "be of use," but the importance
of spending little time with goo<_
fellows is apparent when one hat
his way to make by his own efforts,
in the world. Courtesy ia always
commendable, and courtesy costs
nothing.   It helps everywhere.
The value of a long list of f rienda
and acquaintances to a commercial
man is most obvious, for by his acquaintance, his popularity, he obtains much valuable information
that helps when it comes to doing
business. And the point is not to
overlook the opportunity to cultivate the friendship of those whose
knowledge and worth have already
advanced them to high position, for
their example inspires to emulation;
thus association develops our best
powers, and their counsel and
friendship are worth something' ethically and financially.���Los Angeles
Times.     	
Tit For T��t.
A victim of omnibus pickpockets
determined to get even with them,
so he pat into his pocket a pocket-
book containing only a slip of pa-'
per on which were written the
words:
"This time, you rascal, you've
lost the reward of your labor!"
H4 got into the same omnibus ������
and waited, resolved to have tho.
first pickpocket that meddled with
him arrested. Twenty minutes pm.--
ed and nothing happened, and, tired
of waiting, he got out,; having -.assured himself that his pocketbook
was safe. He opened it, and in
place of his white piece of paper
was a blue one, which he unfolded
and ��ead as follows:

Lemieux spoke strongly in favor of
the continuance of friendly relations
and ,the treaty between Canada and

the breaking of her ties with he.

the two greatest powers of the day,
Great Britain and Japan, with tho
United States as silent partner, guaranteed peace and just dealings with.
China and Korea as far as Russia was
concerned, and that In matters concerning the Pacific ocean there would
be an open door to Great Britain, Canada and United States for trade, commerce and free gospel. Japan held the
key to the Far Bast and should be tha
natural ally of every true Britisher.

It's not for me���the heavy taslt

An Old box car Is all I ask,
Where 1 can rest my feet.
The thought of labor makes me slokl
My stunt is Just to shirk. -
I know a larger, smoother trick.
I am not built for work.
The honest farmer glares at me
As through  the country  lane
Or dusty  road 1 travel fret)
From sordid loss or gain.
No care have I for spoiling crop;
For me no terrors lurk
In pouring rains that rvever -top.
1 am not built for work.
The sound of work on every hand
Falls on my careless ear.
I wander through the smiling land
With neither hope nor fear.
I have a strange philosophy
That's free from quip and quirkj
It whispers soft aud low to me,
I am not built for work.
