Group of Railway Officials Traverse Route Between Respective Points.
The Str. Aberdeen made a
special trip between Okanagan
Landing and Penticton on Wednesday, having on board a company of high officials in the C. P.
R., comprising G. J. Bury, General Manager of the Western
Division; T. T. Busteed, General
Superintendent at Vancouver;
G.S.Wilson, Supt. of Telegraphs;
J. C. Gore, Supt. of B. C. Lake
and River Steamers; and T. Kil-
patrick, Supt. at Revelstoke.
\ Supt. Gore was accompanied by
his daughter.
Several circumstances go to
show that there is something of
more than ordinary significance
in the visit. Special arrangements had been made for livery
conveyance by which the party
were to be driven through to
Midway in a single day. The
Aberdeen reached Penticton
about nine o'clock in the evening
and the company remained on
board over night, leaving at nine
o'clock on the following morning
for the south, with the exception
of T. Kilpatrick, who returned
with the Str. Okanagan. The
party avoided publicity as much
as possible, and when seen by a
representative of The Press,
Mr. Bury stated that the purpose
of the trip through the Okanagan
was to gain an idea as to the
future business of the district.
The officials were merely driving
through to Midway, he said, to
save the long trip around by rail.
It is rather remarkable, however, that such a party would
prefer driving ninety miles over
a hot, dusty road at a cost of one
hundred dollars, to travelling in
their private car over their own
railway system. If such a statement were literally true a greater admission could not be made
as to the necessity for the construction of a railway over the
route. Railway officials do not
take such trips for pleasure, and
there is but one inference. That
is that the railway company is
at present seriously contemplating the continuation of their line
from Midway to Penticton and
thence on to Nicola, thus connecting with the main line at
Spence's Biiige. When questioned as to the construction of
j the ra'lwav, General Manager
Bjry merely looked wise and
shelved the question. It was
evident that he did not want to
talk about t'le subject, and gave
one the impression that he knew
a grjat deal more than he was
willing to admit.
The waron road between Penticton and Midway passes
through one of the finest fruit
growinr secti )ns of the province
as yet altogether in an undeveloped state, owing to lack of
transportation.
��� 	
of the highest praise of their
appearance and the condition in
which they have been keot,
stating that he had not seen
better during his fifteen years'
experience in this province.
W. T. Shatford, who was appointed ta the chair, after a few
introductory remarks, called upon Mr. Burrill to begin his lecture. For the hour following
the speaker kept the attention
of his audience, speaking in a
very fluent and interesting manner of the great fruit market in
Britain, the boundless resources
of this province for fruit growing, and giving many hints of
practical value to fruit growers,
such as to varieties to be planted,
the thinning of the fruit etc.
He stated that the fruit at
the great British exhibitions was
not shown in competition, but was
shown to advertise the country,
and was awarded prizes upon its
merits only. Canada shipped
chiefly to Great Britain, the
United States, France and Australia. He gave illustrations to
show the great possibilities for
market in Australia, but said
that our own Canadian Northwest would be the most important of all markets. In the British Isles two classes of fruit
were demanded. There was a
tremenduous market for cheap
fruit and also a very large
market for the very best quality
that could be grown, among the
class who did not care a rap for
price so long as they got what
they wanted. It was to this latter class that our growers should
cater, as the high quality and
coloring of British Columbia
fruit gave it first place. Newtown Pippins were bringing 16
shillings or nearly $4.00 a
box, and 25 shillings or $6.00
a box had besn paid for
Coxe's Orange Pippins. These
two vai i t es wo 11 always
bring the very highest prices.
Great Britain imported $50,000,-
000 worth of fruit a year. Ontario or Nova Scotia could lay
down a barrel of apples as cheaply as this province could a box.
consequently it would be the
high priced fruit from this
province that would be sent
there at the greatest profit.
To Light the Town.
i
C. II. James, of James Bros.,
��� Kelowna, was in town on Thursday and  Friday.     James Bros,
are electricians and are  tender-
|ing for the installation of the
!stem   power    electric    lighting
plant which is to be put in by the
city.   Mr. .lames' mission to Penticton  was for the purpose  of
looking over the ground  with a
view to putting a lighting plant
in here.    He states that if given
an opportunity he will put in a
plant and furnish light as cheaply as is being done  to towns in
| the Northwest.     The plant he
: would put in would be new;  and
the municipality, would be given
i the privilege of purchasing out-
! right   later  if   so   desired.     A
; written statement of what the
firm offers to do will be forwarded later, and will be discussed by
the Board of Trade.
Motors from Oroviile.
A   report   from the  south  is
current that the Great Northern
Railway has rented a large livery
; barn at Oroviile and will put on
j a  motor   car   system   between
iWenatchee   and    Oroviile,   and
another   between   Oroviile   and
Penticton.     Only   a   passenger
| service will be operated.
Layton���Campsell.
G. A. Layton, of Pentictcn,
and Miss Emma Campsell, of
Godfrey, Ont, were married on
Thursday, the 11th inst., at Medicine Hat, Alta., the ceremony
being performed by Rev. A.
Darrow, of the latter place. The
happy couple arrived in Penticton Saturday evening. The
Press joins with the numerous
friends of the groom in extending congratulations.
Athletic Association.
There was a full meeting of
the Athletic Association Tuesday
night, at which considerable
business relative to the First of
July sports was talked over. It
was decided to take advantage
of the excursion rates offered by
the G. P. R. The company will
run a boat from Kelowna on that
day, leaving, probably, at 7 a.m.
and calling at Peachland, Summerland, and Naramata en route.
The boat will probably leave here
on its return trip about 1:00 a.m.
the following morning, or at
such other hour as may be desired. The rate will be a fare
and a third for the round trip.
A resolution was also passed offering the Kelowna band $75.00
to furnish music for the day.
Messrs. Huycke, Mitchell and
Wade were appointed trustees
for the citizens in the purchase
of the recreation grounds, and
Jos. Lister was appointed to collect further funds for prizes.
The recreation grounds have
been acquired from the S. O.
Land Co., the required sum having been paid over and a receipt
obtained for same. The ai tides
of agreement will be made to
the trustees.
on as a wet application, more
water can be added until it is cf
about the same consistency as
porridge, but if it is to be used
dry, dry bran must be stirred n
until the mixture runs throus h
the fingers easily. The poise n
may then be applied to the lard,
either around or between tl e
plants to be protected, or a rcw
of it may be run close to the
drills of crops planted in that
manner.
This mixture is extremely attractive to cutworms, being preferred to plants in all the instan-
C3S which have come under notice. It takes about ten pounds
of this mixture to an acre of potatoes as ordinarily planted.
I Paris green, being a deadly pois-
| on, care should be taken to keep
j it out of the reach of children
and domestic animals.
Traps made of disused tins,
short sections of drain pipes and
similar things sunk in the ground
and covered over with boards,
allowing sufficient room all round
for the caterpillars to creep under, will capture numbers of the
pasts.
Even ditches with steep,
smooth sides prevent a great
many from getting from one
part of the field to another, and
when the ditch has water in it,
it is quite effectual.
Bulletins on cutworms may be
had on application to the Depart-
of Agriculture.

B.C.
Considering the busy season,
thera was a very good attendance
at the lecture given in Steward's
Hall on Thursday evening by
Martin Burrill, of Grand Forks.
Mr. Burrill was, during last fall
and a portion of the winter, the
immigration agent for British
Columbia in Great Britain, having taken a prominent part in
the exhibitions of British Columbia frjit which attracted such
attenti in in the Old Country.
Mr. Burrill arrived by steamer
in the evening and before the
meeting began was shown over
a ni mber of the young orchards
1 mareft town. He spoke in terms
Hold-Up Near Vernon.
A bold, though cowardly, holdup took place Tuesday, night on
the Vernon-Kelowna wagon road,
three or four miles outside of
Vernon. Jas. McQuarrie, a
farmer on the Commonage, had
been in Vernon during the day,
and had drawn fifty dollars from
the bank. Driving horn 3 in the
evening he overtook a man who
asked him for a lift. After
riding for a distance the stranger
attacked Mr. McQuarrie, who is
over seventy years of age, stunning and then robbing him.
The police are now everywhere
on the outlook for the robber,
and a man named Joe Churchill,
who is suspected, is being sought
for. Churchill is about five feet
eight inches in height, weighs
about 155 lbs., is clean shaven,
light complexioned, an Irishman
by birth, and has a very rough
voice. He has a scar under one
eye. and wore a black hat and
blue overalls when last seen.
To Destroy Cu "worms.
In view of the prevalence oi
cutworms  in different parts of
I the province the following infor-
j mation for their extermination
j is published by the Department
of Agriculture;
The use of the poisoned bran
i rem jdy is strongly  recommended, it having proved  to be most
e licacijus.
The   poisoned    bran    remedy
i gives really remarkable results,
and is actually  more attractive
than   green    vegetation.     The
mixture consists of  bran moist-
��� enedwith sweetened wat^rand
paris green,  mixed  in the proportion of one pound to 5') pounds
of bran.    In making  this mixture, the most convenient meth-
: od is to dampen a small quantity
i with the sweetened water (a few
ounces of sugar in a pail of wtt-
I er), and then add more dry bran,
; until   the   whole   is almost diy
again.    If the paris green is at -
ded to the bran without damping,
it sinks with remarkable rapidity
to the bottom,  even inthisdiy
j mixture, when it is stirred.
[    If it is desired to use the pus-
Local and Personal
E. Clayton has left town.
Many are sorry.
Mrs. Bruce left last week for
Victoria as a delegate to the W.
C. T. U. convention which is
being held in that city.
Miss A. MacKinlay has resigned her position as teacher in
the primary department of the
public school. She will return
to her home in Nova Scotia.
A ladies' dressing room is to
be put up on the lakeshore. All
wishing to assist may leave their
contributions at Norman Hill's
store. All carpenters, who can
do so, are requested to meet on
Monday evening to put up the
building. The ladies are also
expected to be present to superintend the work.
The new range of the Penticton Civilian Rifle Association was
opened Thursday by Mr. W. T.
Shatford firing the first shot and
scoring a bull's-eye. We understand Mr. Shatford will offer a
silver cup to be competed for this
fall. Considering the new rifles
and the new range the shooting
done was very creditable, several
centres being made. About
twenty members of the Club took
part, and it is expected that interest will grow as the existence
of the Club becomes better
known.
For the accommodation of
those wishing to enjoy a pleasant
drive in the vicinity of Penticton,
the Penticton Livery intend next
week to employ their four-horse
coach on Tuesday and Thursday
evenings. The coach which is a
five seater will accommodate fifteen people quite conveniently.
The coach will start from the
Bank of Commerce on the stated
evenings at 7 o'clock, and the
evening's drive will cost the
small sum of twenty-five cents
per passenger. This opportunity
will doubtless be taken advar-
tagc of by a great many residents, old and young, of the town
as well as those who come in on
the steamer. There are a gotd
many people in Penticton who
very seldom get outside of the
town, and this will afford the m
an excelbnt opportunity of doing
so. THE PENTICTON PRESS, PENTICTON, B.C. JUNE 20, 1908.

in the Kelowna hospital, and also
assisted in the furnishing of the

sphndid and was as follows: ���
SUMMERLAND.
T. J. Smith was in town last
week looking after business interests here.
Rev. Baker, of Penticton, occupied the Baptist pulpit here on
Sunday evening, 7th inst., and
preached a very helpful sermon
to a large congregation.
Adam Stark has just installed

ness hours in skimming through

The Ladies' Mission Circle met
on Saturday at the home of Mrs.
O. E Tomlin at 3 p. m.
A long felt want is being complied with in the building of a
spacious freight shed on the big
wharf for the accommodation of
perishable goods.
On the evening of Saturday,
the Gth, the musical students of
The Okanagan College held their
last recital of the college year.
The event was largely attended
by the friends of the institution.
The excellent manner in which
each number of the program was
rendered gave evidence of the
nature of the work done in that
branch of the college during the
year which has just closed.
An event to which the people
of Summerland have long been
looking forward took place on
Monday and Tuesday evenings
of last week. The oratorio ' 'The
Holy City" by the combined
choral classes of Peachland and
Summerland under the direction
of Miss C. K. Davison, of The
Okanagan College, delighted the
ears of large audiences on both
evenings. The success of the
oratorio is the result of a season's
preparation, and certainly gave
credit both to the members of
the classes and to their instructress.
For some weeks past anxious
parents and friends have been
patiently watching the sick bed
of a sufferer, but on Friday'
morning, the 5th inst., the cloud
of sorrow fell and death removed I
the dear one from their midst. I
i Reference is made to the demise
of Reginald Smith, only son of
Dr. and Mrs. Chas. M. Smith, of
Summerland. Mr. and Mrs.
Smith are well known in this'
portion of the valley, they having
moved here from Peachland a
year or so ago to obtain for their
sin the benefits of the college.
Master Reginald was among
those who enrolled as students
here in September, 190(5, and w; s
dearly beloved by all his classmates. In the early part of th's
year he became the victim of the
dread malady ' which finally resulted fatally to the patient suf-:
ferer. The deceased was but
seventeen years of age. The
funeral services were conducted
by Rev. R. J. Mclntyre at the
home on Sunday, the 7th inst.
The procession was one of the
longest ever seen in Summer-
land. The student body of Okanagan College and the Summer-
land band, of which the deceased
was a member,marched in double
file, in recognition of the high
esteem in which their comrade
was held.
Albert Aguar has a young fawn
which was captured on the range

"What enn 1 do? 1 am a pauper

"If you were In my place, what

"I would t-'o tn Itussia."
"What would you do when you nr-

"If I had wealth I would use it in
such ii campaign of bribery nnd corruption In that country of tyrants that
I should release two Innocent men. I'd
first find where they were; then I'd
use all the influence I possessed with
the American ambassador to get them
set free."
"The American ambassador, Kate,
cannot move to release either an Englishman or a Russian."
"I'd do It somehow. I wouldn't sit
here like n stick or a stone, writing
letters to my architect."
"Would you go to Russia alone?"
"No; I should take my father with
me."
"That Is nn excellent idea, Kate. I
advise you to go north by tonight's
train, if you like, and see or telegraph
to him to come and see us."
Kate sat down, and Dorothy drew
the curtains across the window pane
and snapped on the central cluster of
electric lamps.
"Will yon come with ir.e if I go
north?" asked Kate In a milder tone
than she had hitherto used.
"I cannot. I am making an appointment witli n man In this room tomorrow."
"The archllect, I suppose," cried
Kate, with scorn.
"No. with n mnn who may or may
not give me Information of Lamont or

Katherine stared nt her open eyed.

"I have been trying, but it Is difficult

struggling to keep back the tears thai
Would flow in spile of her. Dorothy
patted her on the shoulder.
"Vou have been a little unjust," she
said, "and I am going to prove that to
you. so that lu trying to make amends
you may perhaps stop brooding over
this crisis that faces two poor lone women. You wrong the Englishman, as
you call him. Jack was arrested at
least two days before he was. Nihilist
spies say that both of them were arrested, the prince first, and the Englishman several days later. I had a
letter from Mr. Drummond a short
time after you received yours from Mr.
Lamont. I never showed it to you. but
now things are so bad that they cannot
lie worse and you are at liberty to rend
the letter if you wish to do so. It. tells
of Jack's disappearance nnd of Drum-
inoud's agony of mind nnd helplessness
In St. Petersburg, since he hns never
written again. I am sure he wns arrested later. I don't know which of the
two was most nt fault for whnt. you
cnll stubbornness, but I believe the explosion had more to (lo with the arrests than any action of theirs."
"And I was the cause of thnt," walled Kutherlne.
"No, no, my dear girl. N" "no Is to

there's nothing more to lie said. He

in the prison of St. Peter nnd St. Paul,
they dare not release him unless tbey
nre willing to face war. The Russian
government enn do nothing in his case

"Oh, Dorothy. Dorothy. Dorothy!"

"No. no. dnn'f jump at nn.v false conclusion. We are both nervous wrecks

me. I don't enre��� I don't cure, except
thnt I hate tyranny nnd am sorry for

CHAPTER XII.
,-rjTtlir nihilist was shown In'o the
j il j dnlnty drawing room of the
j i I l!ni nnd found Dorothy Am-
L_Z_J hurst alone, IIS he had stipulated, wailing lor him. lie wns dressed
in n son of nnvnl uniform and hold a
peaked cap in his tin ml. slnnding nwk
wnrdl.v there as one unused lo luxurious surroundings. His face wns bronzed willi exposure In sun nnd storm,
and. although .*<��� appeared to be little
mnn. limn thirty years of age, his
closely cropped llItIr wns white. His
eyes were light blue, nnd if ever Ihe
expression of a man's countenance lie-
tokened stalwart honesty ii was the
face of this sailor. lie wns not 111 the
least Dorothy's idea of a dangerous
plotter.
"Sit down." she said, nnd he did so
like n ninu ill tit ease.
"I suppose Johnson is not your renl
nnuie." she began.
"It is the inline I bear lu America,
madam."
"Do yon mind my asking you some
questions?"
"No. madam, but If yon ask me in>
thing I nm lint allowed to answer i
shnll not reply,"
"How long have you been iu the
United states?"
"Only a few months, madam."
"How come you to sponk English so
well?"
"In my young dnys I shipped aboard
a bark plying between Ilclsingfors and
New York."
i    "You nre n Russian?"
1    "i :iui n |."liilander, madam."
"Have you lieen a sailor all your
life?"
"Yes, madam, Por a time I wns nn
unimportant olDcer on board a battleship in Ihe Russian navy until I wns
discovered to ben nihilist, when I wns
cast Into prison.    1 escaped Inst May
and c line to New York."
"V. ll.ct hnve you been doing since you
arr'vpd here?"
' I was so fortunate as to become
n.ate on Hie turbine yacht the Walrus,
.wiic.l iiy Mr. Stockwell."
������"li. Hint's the multimillionaire whose
lnir.lt I'll 'd n mouth ago."
"Yes. madam."
!
"But does he still keen n yacht?"
"No, madam. 1 think he hns never
been aboard ibis oue, although it is
probably the most expensive boat in
those waters. I am told It cost anywhere from half n million to a million.
She was Imllt by Thoi'Iiycroft like n
cruiser, with Parson's turbine engines
in her. After the failure enptnlu and
.-row were discharged, and t am on
board as a son of watchman until she
is sold, but there is nut n large market
for a boat like the Walrus, and I am
told they will take the littings out of

"I believe I nm considered honest.
iiiadaui."
"Then why do yon come to me asking $lu,(it!ii for ii leltel  which vou sav
was written to me and wide h naturally
belongs lo me?"
I he man's lace deepened into a mahogany brown, and lie shifted liis cap
uneasily iu bis bauds.
"Madam. I am not acting for myself.
I am secretary of the Russian Liberation society. Tbey, through their
branch at St. Petersburg, have conducted some investigations on your behalf."
"Yes, for which 1 paid them very
well."
Johnson bowed.
"Our object madam, is the repression of tyranny. Por thnt we nre in
continual need of money. It is the
poor and not the millionaires who sub-
sen bo to our fund. It has been discovered that you are a rich woman,
who will never miss the money asked,
and so the demand was made. Believe
rue, madam, I am acting by the command of my comrades. I tried to persuade them to leave compensation to
your own generosity, but tbey refused.
If you consider their demand unreasonable, you have but to say so. and I
will return and tell them your decision."
"Have you brought the letter with
yon ?"
"Yes, madam."
"Have you rend It?"
"Yes. madam."
"Do you think it worth $10,000?"
The sailor looked up at the decorated
ceiling for several moments before he
replied.
"That is a question I cannot answer," he snld at Inst. "It nil depends
on what you think of the writer."
"Answer one more question. By
whom Is the letter signed?"
"There is no signature, madam. It
was found in the house where the two
young men lived. Our people searched
the house from top to bottom surreptitiously, and they think the writer was
arrested liefore he had finished the letter. There is no address and nothing
to show for whom it is Intended except the phrase beginning 'My dearest
Dorothy.' "
The girl leaned back Iu her chair
and drew a long breath. "It Is not for
me," she said hastily. Then, bending
forward, she cried suddenly:
"I agree to your terms. Give it to
me."
The man hesitated, fumbling In his
inside pocket.
"I was to get your promise In writing." he demurred.
"Give it to me. give It to me," she
demanded.   "1 do not brenk my word."
lie handed her the letter.
"My dearest Dorothy." she read In
writing well known to her, "you may
judge my exalted state of mind when
yon see that I dare venture on such a
beginning. I have been worrying myself and other people all to no purpose.
I have reelved a letter from Jack this
morning, aud so suspicious had I
grown tbat for a few moments 1 suspected the writing was but nn imitation
of his. He is a very impulsive fellow
nnd can think of only one thing at n
lime, which 'accounts for his success
In the line of invention. He wns telegraphed to that bis sister was ill and
Billing down nerore It.
''Shall I make the check payable to
you or to the society?"
"To the society. If you p!ease, madam."
"I shnll write It for double the
ninount asked. I nlso am a believer
in liberty."
"Oh. madam, that is n generosity I
, feel we do not deserve. I should like
to have given you the letter after nil
! yon hnve done for us. with no conditions attached."
"I am (piite sure of that." said Doro-
' thy. bending over her writing. She
j handed him tlie check, nnd he rose to
go.
"Sit down again. If you please.    I
; wish lo talk further with you.    Your
people   in    St.    Petersburg   think    my
friends have not lieen sent to Siberia.
Are they sure of tbat?"
"Well, madam, they have means of
; knowing those who are transported,
j nnd they nre certain the two young
men were not'among the recent gangs
sent. They suppose them to lie in the
; fortress of St. Peter and St. Paul; at
, least, that's what they say."
"You speak as If you doubted It."
"I do doubt It."
"They have been sent to Siberia, nft
er all?"
"Ah, mndam. there nre worst plnces
than Siberia, In Slberln there is r
chance. In the dreadful Trogzmon-
doff there Is none."
"What is the Trogzmnndoff?"
"A bleak rock in the Baltic, madam,
the prison in which death is the only
goal that releases the victim."
Dorothy rose trembling, staring nt
him, her lips white.
"A rock In the Baltic! Is thnt a
prison nnd not n fortress, then?"
"It is both prison nnd fortress, mnd-
om. If Itussin ever takes tbe risk of
arresting a foreigner, it is to theTrogz-
tnondoff he is sent. They drown the
victims there���drown them in their
cells. There is a spring in the rock, and
through the line of cells it runs like a
beautiful rivulet, but the pulling of n
lever outside stops the exit of the water and drowns every prisoner within.
The bodies are placed one by one on a
smooth inclined chute of polished sand-
' stone, down which this rivulet runs,
so they glide out into space and drop
200 feet into the Bnltlc sen. No matter in what condition such n body is
found or how recent may hnve been

In the Bnltlc. There are no marks of
bullet or strangulation, nnd the currents bear them swiftly away from
the rock."
"How come you to know all this
which seems to have lieen concealed
from the rest of the world?"
"1 know It. madam, for the best of
reasons. 1 was sentenced this very
year to TrogzniondotT. lu my yontii
trading between Helsingfors and New
York I took out naturalization papers
iu New York, because I was oue of
the crew on an American ship. When
liiey illegally impressed me at Helsingfors and forced me to join the Russian
navy, I made the best of a bad bargain and. being an expert sonmnn. wns
reasonably well, treated and promoted,
but at last they discovered I was in
correspondence with n nihilist circle
in London, and when I was arrested

'eft at once to see her. I had allowed
my mind to become so twisted by my
fears for bis safety thnt, us I tell you.
I suspected the letter to be counterfeit
���it first.
"1 telegraphed to his estate and re-
-cive.1 ii prompt reply saying that his
sister was much better and that lie
wns  already  ou   his   way   back  and
would reach me at 11 tonight. So
that's what happens when a grown
man gets a lit of nerves. 1 drew the
most gloomy conclusions from the fact
that I had been refused admission to
the foreign olllce and the admiralty.
Yesterday that was all explained away.
The business Is at last concluded, und
1 was shown copies of the letters
which have been forwarded to my
own chiefs at home. Nothing could be
more satisfactory. Tomorrow Jack
nnd I will be off to England together.
"My dearest Dorothy (second time of

Harbor you nre not a rich woman, so
we stand on an equality lu thnt, even

number of the students who
passed matriculation this year.

day were given ever entirely to
that institution. Rev. F. W.

Special music was furnished by
the choir. At 3:30 in the afternoon Rev. Mr. Patterson addressed the students in the college chapel.

and a goodly portion of the remaining trophies. Kelowna also
did some good shooting and Enderby shooters have nothing to
be ashamed of.

COMMUNICATIONS
(Wedc not hold ourselves responsible for the
i'1'iiii'ins (.f correspondents.)
To 11,��- Editor of Tim Penticton Press:
Dear Sir, Just a few lines in
your paper to give some of your
readers who have no ctellars a
hint on how to keep milk 'sweet,
which can't be done in a cupboard behind the stove or in a
small stuffy pantry opening out
of the kitchen with a temperature of from 70 to 100 degrees,
or even hung out in a pail in the
shade of the house where the
thermometer registers from 80
In !��.r) degrees in the shade. Milk
kept at a temperature of 60 degrees and under will keep sweet
for several days. This temperature can be obtained by sinking
an ordinary coal oil can into the
ground on the north side of the
house, and into this can place
the vessel containing the milk.
Cover the top with a board to
keep out the dust. An empty
box turned over the board will
keap out the sun in the early
morning and evening. This well
i s equally good for keeping butter
and lots of other things, and will
be found very useful.
Yours truly,
II, M. McNeill,
Dairyman.
