this necessary measure of retrenchment falls where it can easiest be
borne on the big cities. For exam-!
pie, Vancouver loses otei"812,000 by
the bill's passage. It, is, in short, as
pointed out iu an able speech Thursday, by Parker Williams, Socialist, of
Newcastle, simply a measure of taxation directed to making those who
have hitherto taken all and given little
or nothing in return, bear their fair
share of the province's burdens.
The measure will, of course, pass,
although there is no doubt there will
be somo alterations in committee,with
a view of absolutely securing the
equitable distribution of all provisions
An unpleasant incident in connection with the debate on this bill occurred Thursday. "Sixpence from
Saanicb" was speaking against the
measure and, after roundly abusing
the government, suddenly pointed a
denunciatory finger at them, and exclaimed in dramatic tones, •'Father,

Humor mb Philosophy
At tbe meeting of the State Dairymen's association at Durham, N. H.,
Professor W. D. Qibbs of the college
■experiment station said that hs had
been studying the question of economically feeding the milk cow. He had
as rations to choose from corn stover at
*S per ton, red clover at #12, ensilage at
$3, timothy hay at $18, bran at $22,
Unseed meal at $30, cornmeal and gluten meal and oats each at $31. From
these he could compound several desirable rations, but most of them cost
more than tlie product of an ordinary
good cow would pay for. He estimated
that her product should be twenty
pounds of milk a day, worth IVi cents a
fiound, or 30 cents a day. But with
•eighteen pounds of corn stover, forty
-pounds of ensilage, one pound of bran,
two of cornmeal and three of cottonseed meal he bad a mixture that would
keep a cow in good condition at a cost
of 20 cents a day. In this ration be bas j
not taken into consideration the mak- ,
ing of any gain in flesh or the value of
monure, both of which would be increased by giving a part of red clover
instead of so much corn stover, without
greatly increasing the cost of ration.
How Often Shall We Feedf
Cows appear to give better results
when fed twice a day tban when fed
more frequently. When fed so frequently as three or five times a day
they are up on their feet straining and
worrying for their feed some time before it gets to them. Investigations
have recently taught that an animal is
using energy when standing that If lying might go to some other use. Ruminants have lnrge stomachs, and the
more quickly tbe stomach is filled and
the animal lies down, contented and
satisfied, the better ths returns will be
for the owner. It Is well understood it
will cost less and bo more convenient
to feed the ration in two feeds than
Feeding Freak Com.
In answer to a correspondent's question regarding tbe amount to feed fresh
cows Hoard's Dairyman says: Thirty
pounds of silage, 15 pounds of clover
hay and 4 pounds each of bran and
gluten feed would contain nearly 28
pounds of dry matter, but little less
tban 3 pounds of digestible protein,
over 13 pounds of digestible carbohydrates and seven tenths of a pound of
digestible fat. Tbls is very heavy feeding, more, we sliould suppose, than
any, even extra large, cows could be
induced to eat and much more than the
average cow can eut with profit. We
nre of the opinion that 30 pounds of
silage, 10 pounds of clover bay and not
to exceed 6 pounds of grain would be
ample as an nveruge allowance for
these cows. At all events we do not
hesitate to advise trying the result of
/reducing tho allowance with a portion
*of the herd. If with reduced feed tbere
.'is a reduced milk supply, tbe evidence
would seem to warrant going back to
the original allowance.
Caused Abortion.
Several years ago we had a great
quantity  of  muskmclons  and  water-1
melons, citrons and cucumbers, which
we cut ba small pieces and fed to three
milk cows and were very much pleased |
with the result, says a correspondent

Foriulntf Habits.
If a cow does not show a strong inclination to go dry within two months
of tbe time she is expected to drop a |
calf, her feed should be ns light as will
keep her In fair flesh. She should have .
no grain feed, and sho sliould uot be
milked dry, but less and less and less ,
Often.   On the other hand, if a young
cow shows an inclination to go dry too |
soon, make every effort to prolong her
milking period by more succulent food
and reasonable increase in the grain rn-1
tiim.   Keiuember tbat tbe hublts per-,
mitted with first calf have a tendency
to repetition thereafter.

At a recent dairymen's meeting attended by the writer one of the speak- |
ers, a  very   practical  and  successful
mnn, advised feeding cows only twice
a dny, since he had seen the plan employed  with results Just as good as
when tbe cattle bad three meals and
with  a considerable saving In  labor.
Yet the speaker confessed that be still
fed his cows three times a day, merely
becnuse he fenred that a change would
cause temporary shrinkage In tlie milk
yield.    Hut there is no need lo fear
such effects, snys American Cultivator.
Tb'i  writer   mude   tho   change   from
three to only two feedings without, so

noon meal lighter each day ond Increae* j

was made before the cows knew what i

Dreams, pipe dreams, what should we da

The Rural Mail Carrier Helps a Friend
Out   on   Poetry.
AN accident to my mail cart detained   mo   at  Farmer   John
Day's bouse Ave hours the other day, but what was my loss
turned out to be his gain.    When he
found out that I would be with him
for the afternoon he said:
"Abe, I've been wantin' to talk with
you for some time, but you are always
in a hurry. I want to sort of pour out
my soul to somebody—somebody who
can appreciate the situation. You

"I thought so; I thought so," he continued, "and now I'll unbosom myself.
You know my wife died three years
"Aud mebbe you've heard thnt I was
shinin' up to tbe Wldder Skinner?"
"I believe I have."
"Y'es, I'm shinin' up, Abe, and I'm
expectln' to marry her next fall after
tho crops are all in. What I'm troubled about Is that I haven't put nny
headstone up for my wife yet I've
meant to all along, but kinder put It
oft. I feel that I ought to do it before
I marry again, and I want you to help
mt* out of it."
"But what can I do?" I asked.
"You can help me with the poetry.
I want at least two verses on tbe stone.
I want to show the world that she was
a good woman and I sorrowed for her,
but at the same time I don't want to
say anything to hurt the Widder Skinner's feelln's. She'll seo tbe stone and
rend the poetry, nnd I don't wnnt to
make her mad. Sly dnughter Snrah
won't write a line, nnd the hired man
don't know enough to find a rhyme for
'butter.'   Will ye help me, Abe?"
I said I would, and we sat down on
a hayrack in tbe baruyard and began
the struggle. The sorrowing widower
told nie what he wanted as near as he
could, and our first joint production
read us follows:
Poor Hannah Day she had to go
And leave her John a-wccplng,
And 'ncath this stone her body lies,
Whilo heaven her soul ls keeping.
No more she will bo seen on earth,
And John sits ln his sorrow;
He  weeps  and  grieves  and  does  not
What happens on the morrow.
Her equal wlll be hard to find-
So loving, kind and tender—
And he whom sho has left behind
Will now and e'er defend her.
"Say. Abe, that's a peach!" exclaimed
TJncIe John when I had read it to him,
"and if It wasn't for the Wldder Skinner it would go like a bouse a (Ire. Y'ou
see, we've got to look out for her. We
must do poor Hannah Justice and yet
not step on the wiililer's corns. I
wouldn't exactly sny that I sit in niy
sorrow. I did sit ln it for the lirst
three months, of course, but then it
begun to go nway. I don't want the
wldder to think I'd sit around and
weep. And about irty not carin' wh.it
happens on the morrow, I guess i'j
change that too. When a man Is sliia-
in' up to a widder he always can's
what happens touiorrer. Try again,
We moved over under the shed to
get In the shade, and I took a little
longer to lit things together. At the

Depend upen Rich, Red Blood—Poor
Blood Means Weak Lungs and Fatal
Every drop of blood in the body must
go through the lungs. That is why
the lungs aro helped and healed, and
strengthened with the great blood-
builaer, Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills. They
till the veins with pure, rich red blood
Unit gives health and -/ifeor to weak
lungs. That is the way Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills brace the lungs to throw off
bronchitis and heavy colds. That ls
the way Dr. Williams' Pink Pills build
up the lungs after an attack of la
grippe or pneumonia That is the
way Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
saved hundreds in Canada from consumptives' graves. No other medicine
does this work so speedily and so well.
Mrs. Jane A. Kennedy, Douglastown,
Que., says:—"My sister, a young and
delicate girl, took a severe cold when
about seventeen years old. Nothing
we did for her seemed to do any good,
and we feared she was going into consumption. Often after a had night I
would get up early to see if she had
spit blood during tlie night. A friend
strongly urged me to give her Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and within a
month from tho time sho had begun
their use, she had almost recovered
her health. Under the continued use of
the Pills she is now well and strong.'
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only
make weak lungs strong, but they cure
all troubles arising from a poor or de-
tieient blood supply, such as anaemia,
indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia,
general weakness, St. Vitus dance,
headaches and backaches, kidney
troubles, palpitation of the heart, and

That gives the widder to understand

We were to perform a famous feat
in crawling on all fours for many
meters. Our ambition was not exnetly
to attract, attention of the Russians
and receive their applause from their
quick-firers. All sorts of fireworks
seemed to help the work of their
searchlights. We made slow progress,
always on fours. We reached the second netting of barbed wire, and this
we hacked away without very much
trouble. In front of us was the final
fence. We had had a happy run of
luck so far. We did not wish to spoil
it by a touch of carelessness or too
much daring. Cautiously, therefore,
we went on our stomachs to make the
distance between the second and the
tirst barbed-wire entanglements. All
this distance was a surprise to us; it
was covered with many things evincive
of the skill and thoughtfulness of the
Russian engineers. It was about one
hundred meters in length. Tho ground
was sloping. It was filled with pitfalls
and mines innumerable. For a second
these mines made us forget tho first
line of wire fence toward which we
were making our way. First of all,
wc had to dispose of the mines. We
had reason to suspect that they were
electric mines, and, in fact, the Rus-
si. n engineers, with all their thought-
fulness, did nol alwayF tnke the
trouble to bury the conductors. We
db-eovercJ. and cut as many ns four
conductors, which were just about the
size of my thumb. They were wiapped
in a rubber coating, and within the
rubber coating we found over twenty-
lour small wires. I carried no scissor')
about me. These electric wires were
a neat surprise to us. The severe
usage to which it had been put hnd
dulled the edge of my axe almost as
blunt as the edge of my palm. It cound
not cut the rubber-wrapped wires on
soft earth. Time was pressing. We
were ln danger of being discovered before we could get at the first line of
barbed-wire fence, which was the lasi
goal of our efforts; moreover, we were
somewhat impatient. So all of us fell
upon those electric wires.and with our
teeth we bit them off. I fear we may
have been BOmewhat excited. We did
some damage to our teeth by I his worK.
When a man tells you that he did not
know when his teeth were being
broken, you would not believe him.
That man might be telling the truth,
under some circumstances, however."
He laughed a laugh innocent and
childlike, and ln the laughter you
could see more than two broken teeth
in hia mouth. Nothing else could
drive hosie the conviction quite so
powerfully as rrmse broken teeth of
his.—"Adachi Kinnosuke ln Success

Many newspapers throughout the
world, since the fall of Port Arthur,
have criticised the Japanese for ha •
ing used up so much energy lu capitiling that stronghold contending that
it would have been mon' advantageous,
from a mili'ary slandpoini, to have
taken Mukden, ihe capital of Man
churia, and the centre of the theatre
of the war. Then* is no doubt that the
capture of Mukden would have been
greater as a victory than the taking
of Port Arthur, but the Japanese reason for nol doing so is somewhat peculiar, if Wt startling. Milkdt a Is a
sacred city, in the eyes of the Chinese,
and if in the whlrlwln 1 of the war, It
should be despoiled lhe curse and possibly the vengeance of the Chines"
would be upon the nation responsible
for it. Mukden is Identified with all

the Manchu fathers. K Is well known
that theii dynasty is the oldest in the

It Is common belief that the genus
of disease nourish only in the human
organism, and that, if we could once
eradicate an infectious malady, it
would stay eradicated. It now seems
very probable that this is untrue. According to a view held wholly or partially by many pathologists, and Btrong*
ly upheld by a recent French writer,
Professor Bodin, disease germs are
oni;* accidentally virulent, their normal existence being what is called
"saprophytic;" that is, independent of
any olher organism. When one of
tnese harmless varieties changes i's
nature so as to become parasitic, we
have a new disease. Observation has
sho vn that many kinds of bacteria are
very unstable, and are constantly form
ing new varieties. It is possible, therefore, thai potential germs of typhoid,
lockjaw, or consumption may be growing harmlessly about us, to assume,
suddenly, a virulent parasitic life at
some future time. According to 'lis
view, bacteria are primal ily benevolent agents for promoting chemical
change, and the variation that turni
some of them into injurious paras!', s
is accidental and abnormal.

tho views of the fair-minded, moderate-thinking men. To municipal topics
it pays much attention, and its opinions there anent deservedly carry

The Secret of Happineta.
The man who can drill his thoughts,
so as to shut out everything that is
depressing and discouraging and see
only the bright sido even of his misfortunes and failures, has mastered the
secret of haplness and success. He
has made himself a magnet to draw
friemis, cheer, brightness, and good
fort imo to him. Every one is pleased
to see him. His presence is like a
sunbeam on a dul day. There is no
accomplishment, no touch of culture,
no gift which will add so much to the
alchemic power of life as the optimistic habit—the determination to be
cheerful and happy no matter what
comes to us. lt will smooth rough
paths, light up gloomy places, and melt
away obstacles as the sunshine melts

Sleeplessness.—When the nerves

subject could sleep, there would be
oblivion for a while and temporary relief. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills will
not only induce sleep, but will act so
beneficially that the subject will wake

All classes of people sing Miss Crosby's secular and sacred songs. The
children in the public schools use
"There's Music in the Air"; their parents know and love "Hazel Dell,"
"Rosalie, the Prairie Flower," and
others, which were immensely popular twenty-five years ago. But Fanny
Crosby is best known by her hymns,
such us '[Rescue the Perishing," "I am
'I bine, O Lord," "Nearer the Cross,"
"Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior,"
"BleBsed Assurance" and "Some Day'
the Silver Cord will Break." The first
of her hymns was written in 1SC4, and
.since that date she has composed overl
eight thousand, under various noms-
The gifted singer has been blind
since she was six years old, but
ihrough marvellous difficulties has
overcome great obstacles. For twenty-
three years she was a pupil and teacher in tho New York Institution for the
Blind. There she met and knew Henry
Clay, General Scott, James EC. Polk,
Governor Seward, and ex-President
Cleveland, who has been her firm
friend for fifiy years. Miss Crosby
has known many of the greatest musical and literary men and wonien, including all the famous composers of
Sacred music. Recently she has written up the entire story of her life iuto
an autobiography) which promised to
be widely read when it is published.
Miss Crosby has a wonderful nieni-l
ory. Sue composes an entire hymn
bi lore having any of it written down
on paper. Once she wrote forty songs
before having any of theni recorded;
and nt the end she could recall every
one of them.
On March 2fi the churches of America propose to build Miss Crosby a
monument of gratitude, which will be
more enduring than any marble shaft.
They propose to honor hor life-work
while she still lives; and is ablG to
appreciate the kind thought of those
who sing and love her songs. Hundreds of churches nre preparing special programs of song to use for that
purpose; and a unique feature of the
plan is a large gift of honor as a testimonial to Miss Crosby's public service.
They thus hope to recognize in a fitting manner her eighty-fifth birthday.

How brief Is lifo   how short!

no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may

in a local paper. To

advertise. All live
