•   Poultry Raising.
Tho following is a Hynop.is of an a<l-
1 dress   by Mrn, Ma TiUoti, of West Sal-
;em, Wi..', wlio  lias  lieon conduct'tig u
i series of   poultry  iiistiuile meetings  in
\rova St;i tia:
We may butt.l a dry, sunny, warm hen
house,  feed  wt-ll-lialane. d   raiioiin, and
be  kind,   faithful   im._t.r-, yet   defeat
ourselves in pouliry culture l>\ allowing
na9ty pir-i-ite. on and around in.in.
There are abiu'* nine kind-of lice and
four kinds   of initea infe.tinx  poultry.
Some of the li e, notably the large, grey
head louse, are  blood-suckers, but mo-o
of them  are  tilth   feeders.    The   peat.
differ in size, color and -hap., but rein
edi_l nieaeures do not differ so much.
A few general directions aie:
Remove nianuie   daily   if possible,
and scrape the perches.   Provide a mellow dust box free from lumps, in which
the fowl may clean themselves.   Keep it
it in a sunny p'ace aud stir ana *-v~~
it  often.    Sifted coal allies under  the
beak,   wings  and vent will  help to rid
the birds ot lice.
It is necessry, for thorough cleaning
to have   moveable nests and perches.
Wide perches prevent crooked breast
bones and are a necessity for large fowl.

What they Say
Tlie visit of Messrs Teeple aud
Getlimn.ii to Lillooet has renewed
confidence in the report that this
year will see a stir in mining operations in this section. Mr. Tee-
pie has, of course, most to say
about the preparation.- tlmt tire
being made for building the monster dredge on tlie Lowa-Lillooet
Company's property. He remarks
tha.t lie has spent months in examining tlie Fraser gravels and
is fully convinced tlmt no better
opportunity exists than till at offered by the Lillooet gravels for
extensive and profitable dredge
Familiarity with the conditions
tlmt prevail only tends to intensify thecoiiviction that things on
the Company's property are exceptionally favorable. For some
miles above the claim the river
hows th roll h a narrow, rock-walled gorge, and heavy material is
swept on to points below the Lillooet bridge, where the channel
widens out and the current is
comparatively slow. Here, the
long stretch of wide channel, the
eoinparnlive absence of rocks,
and the extensive acreage of low
bars, present a picture that "tills
the eye" of the gold-seeker.

Hruneti, of the St. James division

and disqualified for seven years.
A fine of $50 each lias been imposed on personabors hired by
liquor men to falsify the recent
referendum vote in Ontario, anil
now charges are made that per-
sonators <>ii.ve I'aterson the majority iu North Victoria. This
has not been proved, bub we hope
that, if the cliarg'e is proved,
something more than a mere fine
will be meted out bo bhe offenders. To insinuate, as some of
our exchange-) do, that both parties use these methods, does nob
lessen blieguilb nor the necessity
for drasbic measures against offenders. To play wicks with the
ballot-box is bhe highest treason
oiminst our free institutions antl

Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers-       ^g
As far back as tlie year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time,
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $:>50,0(X), to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
ANDERSON lake and Kii-Dui. RIVER mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected.
3.Jts^]shing ajidJHuntmg Grounds--^3^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here.    Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound.    Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to,
be a luxury.
4. ItsSalubno^
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers.    Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest ttailway towns are ashcroft and lvtton, on the Canadian pacific railway.

To Recognize Purity.
Adulteration has grown to such a
fine art, that it is almost impossible for a woman now-a-days to detect the false from the true; but a
chemical analysis will always detect
adulteration. Prof. W. Hodgson
Ellis, Official Analyst to the Dominion Government, after a number of
analyses, reports that "Sunlight
Soap is a pure and well-made soap."
Try Sunlight Soap—Octagon Bar-
next wash day, and you will see that
Prof. Ellis is right. No one should
know better than he.       210
