Tot many things tn fcooltery, St. Charles Cream
is an essential.    It Is as good as the hest milk
or cream for any purpose.   For many purposes
it is much better.   It gives to coffes,
for iastance, a flavor which even the
best of ordinary cream cannot approach, and it aids in bringing out
the delicate aroma of chocolate and
cocoa.   For confection and ice cream
it is unexcelled.    For invalids and
infants it is indispensable. It never
curdles.   It strengthens the strong.
If only pure water is added it will agree with

Special efforts lmve been mnde this

fending hospitality  to friends, neish-
tiprs and strangers on  May 3, Westminster not only has the pleasure of

herself that is spread abroad and tlie
Idndly feeling with which ;he comes

ns guests on  her    ceremonial    occasions. Tho guests themselves will, we
hope, enjoy themselves too, especially |
the children, for after all this is the
���children's day and everything is directed to give them pleasure.   From Van-

is believed, come a goodly number of

'Won by Margin of Four Goals���Keenly Contested Game���Bad
The much heralded soccer game between tho Rovers and the Senior
Amateurs is a thing of the past, and
the former have now the undisputed
claim to the championship of the city.
Old Jupe was not in very good mood
on Saturday atternoon and the attendance and also the playing qualities of
the opposing teams were below par.
After being unsuccessful ln landing
lhe services of a Vancouver referee
the captains of both teams finally
called on that old veteran ln the sport-
In., world, Tim .Mahoney, to handle
���he whistle. Although the supporters
ol the rival teams occasionally gave
yen' to tbeir feelings at what they
I bought were glaring fouls and errors,
���Tlm kept the game well ln hand and
favored neither Bide. The Rovers won
the tOBS and elected to kick down hill.
For the first fifteen minutes the Amateurs worked in some pretty combination plays but the forward line failed
to take the opportunities of scoring.
Craig skimmed the bar with a lightning shot which would have beaten
Sampher, Towards the end of the
first half the Rovers were continually
���on thc offensive, their half-back line
feeding the forward division to good
effect. McAllister and PatterBon, the
opposing backs showed up prominently, making clearances, when it seemed
certain that tlie Rovers would score.
Half-time found the teams on equal
footing, the Roverr perhaps having
had the better of the play.
Dining the interval it was expected
that the championship sprint, race between Messrs. Ryall and Beaton
would be pulled off but for some unknown reason, neither of these old
wariir.rses showed a desire to toe the
line, the failure of this hair-raiser being a sore disappointment to the fans
Play opened fast in the second half,
both teams showing a .keenness to
bulge the net. Seventeen minutes
after resumption of play, Waddy Robertson wormed his way close ln, and
beat liirchiield with a slow shot
which the net tender ought to have
saved. The Rovers supporters, who
up to then had been the weaker, as
far sa cheering wus concerned, let
loose their pent up enthusiasm, Scotty
Giant, the manager of the ;<rofession-
also being prominent in this regard.
This disaster seemed to dishearten the
amateurs and they failed to stem tlje
tide. McAllister, In ft hot attack, w*3
rorcei to concede a coiner from which
Wa'.ker scored. Shawcross and Cairnduff rolled up the total to four before
the final whistle was sounded.
On points of play, the better team
won. Their defence line was good to
watch, Lyon and McMillan leaving
Sampher with little to do. Bruce on
the half-back line was a tower of
strength for the Rovers, being continually in tho thick of the fight. For
the Amateurs, McAllister was the
shining stur, but for his work the op-
position would have penetrated the
sticks more than they did. The lineup of the teams is as follows:
Rovers���Sampher, goal; Lyons, McMillan, hacks; Bruce, Lewis, Melkle-
john, half backs; Hayes, Cairnduff,
Shu wet oss, Robertson, Walker, forwards.
Senior Amateurs���Blrchfleld, goal:

Was  She?���Early  Queens  Fond
^^^^B of Game.
Who was the first lady golfer?  No
murbie  marks   her    sepulchre;     her
name   is   not   handed   down   in   her
Bong.    Whether sho was honoured by
the world as a pioneer, or burned for
a  witch  because   she  holed  out her
' tee-shot at Kden, history has  forgotten to record.   It Is only in keeping,
however,  with  the  traditions  of  the
?aine    which    is  proverbially    both
Royal and ancient Ihat the first lady
players of whom there la any chronicle   should   be   Queens    of   England
and Scotland.   The unfortunate Catharine of Aragon, the    first Queen of
Henry    VIII.,    writing    to    Cardinal
Wolsey at a time when her husband
and  most of the  Kngiish  champions
i of  the day   were  taking  part  in  an
I unfriendly match In the neighborhood
j of La Boulie, says that she "thanks
God   to   be   busy   with  the  golf,"  in
which doubtless she found some dls-
I traction   from   the   weariness   of  the
deserted Court. It is right to mention
1 at   the  same   time  that   there   is  at
j least a doubt   whether the golf that
��� was played by Queen  Catharine had
any   very   close   resemblance   to  the
game  as  known  in    this generation,
for the English writers of the Tudor
i times   do  not  always   draw   a   clear
distinction between golf and the kindred  game of pall-nlall.    No  similar
j doubt, however, exists in the case ol
the  other  Royal     pioneer  of   ladles'
golf, the    beautiful    and unfortunate
; Mary Queen of Scots.    Her fon.Iness
��� for  the game has  supplied  the golf-
j ing   world   with  at  least   one  of its
technical terms, for there is no doubt
| that  be word "coddle" is only a cor-
: ruption  of  the   French   "cadet,"   and
traces  its derivation to those  sprigf
, of French nobility who    followed. th��-
Queen's  Court  from  Paris  after  tht-
! death of her young husband, and wiio

j Queen's clubs or even���the more dai
; ing  spirits of them���to  submit  to a
defat at her   hand with    a   gallantry
t truly Gallic.   Queen  Mary's golf was
one of the things which were seized
upon as evidence against her by her
j enemies,   for   it   was   remarked   tha;
not long after her husband's death iu
15i!"  she amused    herself by playing
j golf  in  the flelds around  Seton  Palace, a recreation which the strict folk
consiieied   was   too   frivolous   fer  a
princess whose consort had Just lately  been    blown    u;> by    gunpowder.

Baseball, /although possibly tbe
most popular game in existence today played as It ls by many nations,
only came into being some 6i ;.ears
ago. ln 1846 the flrst club to play
the game was founded, the Kicker-
l.ocker Club of New York. They did
not play tbe game us lt Is played
now. 'there were three referees nnd
a runner was out lf hit by a thrown
hull. 'Ilt'3 first annual meeting of
baseball clubs formed into an ubso-
ciutlon was held In New York in I860,
and this may be called the start
of baseball as it is today. In 18t>2 the
flrst admission fee was charged to a
baseball game and soon aiterwaidB
the game changed from amateur to
professional! the fate of every sport
in which the gate receipts loom large.
In 18 il the Amateur Association
passed 'out of existence an.1 the National  Associnlion came into being.
Alter this the dark years of baseball arrived. The game was attacked
un every hand, even from the pulpit
as being dishonest and tending to
etuouiate gambling. A few ot the
leading spirits ln baseball got together and formed the National Association cleaning out the gambling
practises and putting the game upon
a clean basis once again. Club owners
made large fortunes and the players
were under-paid at flrst, but ln 1887,
���lohn It. Ward, now president or the
Hoston club, organized the Brotherhood, and in 1889 when the slogan
"not more than $2,000 for any player"
was heard, the players formed the
Playets' League.
The league failed, but it taught a
needed itoson to the club owners and
not since that time has a salary limit
heen proposed in major league ball.
In 1900 Ran Johnson 'started the
American League, nnd a baseball war
���Blurted. It ranged with varying for-
t'ines for a couple of years, and then
the owners, finding that they were
losing    monfiy,  came    together  and

Halcyon Days,
The seven da^s preceding and Ihe

Unless Precautions Are Taken Gum*
mosie Will Limit. Life and Usefulness.
"Certain varieties of the cultlvt'.sd
sweet cherry found In lhe Pacific
northwest are very subject to a diseased condition which Is 'commonly
known as 'cherry gutnmosis,'" says
i-'red L. tirlllln. a graduate student of
the Oregon Agricultural college, discussing some Investigations which ha
carried on iu the plant pathology department there.
"The disease Is characterized by a
more or less copious exudation of gum
from the tree," Mr. (jrltlln continues,
"the gum coming from the branches,
spurs and bads as well ns from the
trunk, nnd a pustulated appearance of
tbe bark is noted near the diseased
areas. Often but little gum ls exuded,
but lu such cases an examination of
the affected trees generally discloses
discolored tissues whicb are Infiltrated
with gum. Such areas nre spongy to
the touch und are usually discernible
by the variation lu color of the bark
as compared with that of tbe uortnnl
"Cherry gummoRis appears in both
n localized and generalized form.    In
Photo By Oregon   Aeilcultural college.
the former the disease Is apparently
Confined to a rather limited urea on
the trunk or branches, such area being
most often associated with a blighted
spur or bud lu the generalized form
large areas of the trunk or branch may :
become Involved, nnd tt often results
ln complete Blrdllng. This latter tyne
of Kiuuinottlx often appears to origt- \
uate In the crotch ot the tree."
Mr. r.rill!n has suggested thnt tbe
use of top worked, resistant stocks wlll
prevent body pirdling. Mazzard seedlings top grafted to Lambert cherries
liave proved quite successful In this
connection, as have tbe same seedlings
top budded to Royal Annes. The
Prunus Mahaleb is a species distinct
from the sweet variety and as a wild
seedling is native to Europe. It Is.
like the Mazzard. a resistant stock,
though the Mazzard bas proved the
better for the cultivated sweet cherries. By bavlng the body of tbe tree
of a^stork Immune, or nearly so, like
tbe Mazzard. ihe worst that cun happen is the loss of a branch nr so.
whereas If this precaution Is not observed the main body of tbe tree is
liable to be affected and tbe* life ond
usefulness of tbe tree limited.
Tbe evils of one crop agriculture are not to be measured in
tbe immediate present, but ln
our declining years or wben we
turn over a wornout farm to our
children. Tbe vast cotton fields
of tbe south and tbe wheat fields
of tbe nortli and west bear mute
but emphatic witness of tbe suicidal policy of adhering to but
one crop.���Kansas Parmer.
Useful Hint* on Keeping Busy During
Otherwise Idl. Staton.
Th<�� fruit grower Is often confronted
by the problem of providing profitable
labor for Ills employees during tha
wIisvt. Without cuttle nr other live
stock on the place It Is often bard to
provide such work. Since gooti help
Is becoming more scarce each year on
tbe fruit farms. It means a good deal
to be able to bold laborers over from
ono season to another.
On the farm which Is so fortunate
as to be provided with a small workshop many days may be profitably
spent In repairing nnd oiling the harnesses, inaklug orchard whi filet rees,
painting and repairing all the tools,
wagons and farm machinery. All
spraying machinery should be completely overhauled for tho coming
season. The packing of all the pump*
should be renewed. The engine should
be thoroughly examined, all the badly
worn parts should be replaced, and it
should lie oiled well to prevent rusting. Much time Is lost by farmers
during tho rush of spring work
through failure to overhaul their machinery during the winter. All tho
small tools should also be carefully
examined. Axes, scythes, mowers,
hoes, shovels, etc.. ahould lie repaired
and sharpened, for good sharp tools
Increase the elllclency and rapidity of
labor and therefore decrease the cost.
Plllnt Is a great preservative Of tool3
and especially of wagons. To gtvo
them once a year n coat of paint well
rubbed ln Is as good an Investment ns
a farmer can make. Ills equipment
wlll then not only look more respectable, but will lar.t much longer.
Many fruit growers during the past
season have experienced difficulty In
obtaining packages fnr their fruit during the harvesting period. Strawberry
crates and boxes nre always scarce
during the picking (tetiflop, Apple
barrels iind grape baskets are just ns
difficult to obtain In the fall, and the
demand for packages at these times
causes the price to be higher.
Why not eliminate vexation and expense by buying (he packages "knocked down" or " In the Hat" during the
winter when the prices ate more reasonable nnd Ihe laborers may be profitably employed In making lhem up?
Oue not only can save much by thta
procedure, but the packages will then
he at hand ready for the harvesting.
Kerry crates and boxes may be made
up and packed away for the spring.
Crape baskets may Ue bought, and the
handles may be nailed on at this tlmo
Insteud of In the fall. Apple boxes, if
used for packing this fruit, may also
be made up during these nionlhs and
set away for the fall.
In  some  states   the  barrel   is  still
the most popular package for artples.
Within the last few years some of llm
growers with large orchards have solved
the problem of winter work by Installing a cooper's omttt nnd innklns up lhAv
own   barrels  AtirVnjt  the, wtutter.     "Vtta
1 material may be bougtot ready to **���
1 semble at a reasonable price, and the
I tools uecessary for making the barrels
may   be   procured   at  a   slight   cost
Wben proper storage facilities are at
band many fruit growers can save a
good deal in this way, besides utilizing
tbeir employees during the winter.   At
times oue might also contract to supply  a   neighbor  with  barrels,   which
would permit one to buy tbe material
In larger quantities and make a little
money on the contract, besides prolonging tbe winter's work.���Country Gentleman.

When asked by a New* representative lf he would have any colored picture songs, he   said   no,    firmly anl
finally.    Asked why, he sali that he
did not think  the show-going people
liked the picture song, but he intended to get a llrst cluss soloist to sing !
during the evenings.    Mr.  Tidy  said j
that he toould not spare expense, as ;
ho knew that lie would have a hard i
time getting the people'to climb the
hill, for just an ordinary picture show |
and thai was the reason for him try- j
lng to make hla an extraordinary one. j
