Editor Review.
Dear sir,���I have read with very great
interest of the good work of the Town
Improvement Soticty. and I have also
attended the meetings, therefore as
thev nre doing gooiH think they should
next pay their attention to the unsanitary stale of a ccrlain alleyway. I
di n't have to say what one, because If
tbey bunt they will detict it by the
odor, I call it a shame that people
are dirty and I think that thev should
be prosecuted and the Improvement
Society should run them out if they
don't be clean like men not beasts,
which is true.    Yours truly,
New Denver, Nov. 23, 1007.

Local talent along entertainment lines
is in any community always a draw, but
we can say, without fear of contradiction, that even though Slocan audiences are somewhat bard to please���and
we suppose amateur talent is "suffered"
on account of its local extremes everywhere���that there is at the present
time a really good aggregation of performers in our bless'd city. Now, the
K, of P.'s have gathered in the cream
of this local talent, and we venture to
say that the concert under their auspices next Thursday will justify our
prediction that it will be a success from
a " talented " view alone. The rest
wo leave to our readers.    Let's all go.
More Families for Nakusp.

McKiltrick are to be congratulated on
providing an enjoyable evening for the
people of Nakusp.
We see by the Nelson News tbat
they had a fall of snow on Nov. 19th,
while we in Nakusp are enjoying beautiful balmy weather.
Still they come. Two more families
arrived last week.
The following notice has caused considerable amusement*.

known that is tantamount to a " Btate

on, MeBride bearing the first pseudonym. The lord high executioner, the
cliief muck-a muck, the head push, tbe

circle is " Foxy Grandpa."
A Utile bird has whispered who that

be too too specific, we do not mind
mentioning  (sub rosa, of course) that
such title has been earned by but

Editor Slocan Mining Review,
New Denver, B.C.
Lloyd minster, Sask.,
Nov. 15, 1007.
Dear Sir,���rieasefind enclosed cheque
for year's subscription to your paper.
I am very pleased indeed to see tbe
evidences of the return of the old-time
prosperity of New Denver, contained in
the issue of your paper forwarded to me
by my father. Since leaving the
Slocan Borne years ago in quest of that
which was there becoming daily harder
and harder to acquire, I have seen many
places ou both sides of the ocean, experienced several climates, and still I
can honestly say what I have always
said, i.e., that for scenic beauty and a
delightful climate the country bordering the shores of Slocan Lake has no
equal anywhere Its people* were
always sociable and kind. That to
these charms is now to bo added that o!
nn era of tho most generous prosperity
tho goddess of Fortune can bestow is
my sincere wish,
Very sincerely yours,
R. B. TuoMi'sox.
Our Fruit Growers' Column.
There will be a great number of
young fruit trees set out in the Slocan
country within the next few months,
and the question of varieties and of the
age at which to plant is most important, for we want to start aright and
with an eye to future developments.
But a few years ano everybody planted as big and old trses as they could
get, and hoped thereby to get fruit
earlier and the tree larger, but it was
found that this practice did not work
well. The older trees cost more to begin with, and a fur larger proportion of
such trees set out died during the first
year than if yearling trees were planted.
Then, again, it cost more to plant the
larger trees, for larger hobs wero necessary, and it was not easy to make such
a good job and spread out the roots so
well; more of the roots had to be cut to
get the trees up, and there was more
damage and shock to tbe larger trees.
Tho yearling trees mado themselves at
homo more rapidly in tlieir new position, and generally in four or five years
had overtaken and often surpassed the
two and three year old trees.
But most important point of all. The
ownor of the yearling tree bad bad the
pruning of tbe tree in bis own bunds
from tbe very start and could bead the
tree according to his own fancy and
taste, whereas with tlie older trees the
head was already formed at the nursery
and subsequent pruning could only
modify it.
Let us plant yearlings of the best
sorts in carefully prepared ground, well
drained and well fenced, for a fruit tree
objects to cold wet feet as much as we
do, and none of our neighbor's cattle
are sufficiently educated to prune our
trees properly.
It is of the utmost importance that
the ground be thoroughly cultivated before the trees are planted, for it can
never he as well worked afterwards, and
I would sooner wait a year than plant
trees in laud that was not ready for
them. Two or three ploughing., will
not be too much, and let tbe frost and
sunshine do their part to make the soi
mellow. Turning in a crop of green
clover or a good dressing of barnyard
manure will have a splendid effect both
in enriching the soil and in improving
its texture. Indeed, the growing of
clover for manure is so important a
matter, especially for u. in this district,
that I hope to devote an entire article
to it in the near future.
Many a beginner in his zeal and
anxiety to do the beat pissiblo for bis
trees has piled manure in tho holes with
the roots, only to have the mortifica-
cation of seeing his trees tlie of root rot.
Spread the manure evenly on the
ground, and never let it lie in a heap
closo to the treo, ns it is likely to ferment and cause disease of the bark ; in
fact, no manure should ever touch the
trunk of tbe tree. Nourishment is
lakon up by the tips of the root fibres,
therefore manure at soma little distance
from the tree, in the best position to
be utilized.
The wonderfully mild weather that we
haveenjo.el this autumn deserves to
be chronicl.d. I dug up dahlias in my
garden to-day, Nov. 18tb. The tops
were still quite green and a few ol ths
flowers were in goon condition. It is
very doubtful if in any par* of England
dahlias could bo found iu this condition
at this time of the year.

The good people of Devonshire were
rather given to quarreling*���sometimes
about the minister's wife, meek, gentle Mrs. Tiverton, whose manner of
housekeeping, or style of dress, did
not exactly suit them; sometimes
about the minister himself, good, patient Mr. Tivertan, who vainly imagined that if he preached three sermons a week, attended tbe Wednesday evening prayer-meeting, the
Thursday evening sewing society, officiated at every funeral, visited all
the sick, and gave to every beggar
who called at his door, besides superintending the Sunday school, he was
earning his salary of six hundred per
Sometimes, and that not rarely, the
quarrel crept into tlie choir, and
ithen, for one whole Sunday, it was
nil in vain that Mr. Tiverton read
the psalm and hymn, casting troubled-
'glances toward the vacant seats ol
'his refractory singers. There was no
one to respond, unless it were good old
iMr. Hodges, who pitched so high that
!few could follow him; while Mrs. Captain Simpson���whose daughter, the
'organist, had been snubbed at the
{last choir meeting by Mr. Hodges'
daughter, the alto singer���rolled up
her eyes at her next neighbor, or
fanned herself furiously in token of
her disgust.
Latterly, however, there had  come
np  a  new   cause   of  quarrel,   before
;which  every   otner  cause  sank  into
insignificance.    Now, though the village  of  Devonshire  could   boast  but
one public schoolhouse, said house beting  divided   into    two   departments,
the upper and lower divisions, there
jwere   in   the   town   several     district
schools; and for the last few years a
committee of three had been annually
appointed to examine and decide upon  the  merits of the various  candidates for teaching, giving to each, if
the decision  were  favorable,  a  little
slip of paper certifying their qualifications   to  teach   a  common   school.
Btrange that over such nn office so fierce
a feud should have arisen; but when
Mr. Tiverton, Squire Lamb, and Lawyer  Whittemore,   in  tbe  full   conviction  that they   were doing  right,  refused  a  certificate  of  scholarship  to
Laura  Tisdale,  niece  of  Mrs.  Judge
Tisdale, and awarded it to one whose
.earnings  in   a  factory   bad   procured
for her a thorough English education,
the villagers, to use a vulgar phrase,
were  at   once   set   by   the  ears,   the
aristocracy   abusing,   and   the   democracy   upholding   the   dismayed   trio,
who, as the breeze bleu harder, quietly   resigned   their  office,  and   Devonshire was without a school committee.
In this emergency something must
be done, and, as the two belligerent
parties could only unite on a stranger, it seemed a matter of special providence that only two months before,
young Dr. Holbrook, a native of the
modern Athens, hnd rented the pleasant little office on the village common,
'formerly occupied  by old  Dr.  Carey,
now  lying  in   tbe  graveyard   by  the
;side of some whose days he had prolonged, and others whose dnys he had
surely shortened.  Besides being handsome, and skillful, nnd quite as familiar with  the  poor as the  rich,  the
young doctor was descended from the
aristocratic line of Boston Holbrooks,
facts  which  tended   tc  make  him   a
favorite with both classes; and, greatly to his surprise, he found  himself
unanimously  elected  to the  responsible office of sole  Inspector of Common  Schools in  Devonshire.    It was
in vain that be remonstrated, saying
he   knew   nothing     whatever   of   the
qualifications requisite for a teacher;
that he could not talk to girls, young
ones especially; that he should make
a miserable failure, and so forth. The

We've bad enough of your ignoramuses," said Colonel Lewis, the democratic potentate to whom Dr. Holbrook wns expressing bis fears that
he should not give satisfaction. Then,
as a bright idea suggested itself to
tbe old gentleman, he added: "T tell

first; that'll give you a name for being particular, which is just the

as to what was expected of him, except that he was to find out "whether a girl knew ber P's and Q's,"
and as also to "cut one or two of

accepted the office, and then awaited rather nervously his initiation Hi

soon as possible from her presence
to the covert of his friendly office,
where, with his boots upon the table
and his head thrown back in a most
comfortable position, he sat one April
innio nn oddly shaped" "S," so that
it read simply:
"Dr Holbrook���Sir: Will you be at
leisure to examine me on Monday

bevy of girls who must, of course,
ere long invade his sanctum.   .
"Something for you, sir. The lndy
will wait for an answer," said his
"chore boy," passing to bis master a
little three-cornered note, and nodding
toward the street.
Following the direction indicated,
the doctor saw, drawn up near his
door, an old-fashioned one-horse wag-
>n, such ns is still occasionally seen
in New England. A square-boxed,
dark green waeon. drawn bv a sorrel
horse, sometimes called by tbe genuine Yankee "yellow." and driven
by a white-haired man, whose silvery
locks, falling around his wrinkled
face, gave to him a pleasing, patriarchal appearance, which interested
the doctor far more than did the flutter of the blue ribbon beside him,
even though the bonnet that ribbon
tied shaded the fnce of a young pirl.
The note was from ber, and, tearing
it open, the doctor rend, in the prettiest of all pretty, girlish handwriting:
"Dr. Holbrook-"
Here it was plainly visible thnt a
"D" had been written as if sbe would
have said "Dear." Then, evidently
changing her mind, she hnd with her
f}ns__r   hlflUivl   'lilt   tha   "Ti "   nnd   n��,,l,.
"Madeline A. Clyde
"P.S.���For particular reasons 1
hope you can attend to me as early
as Monday. M.A.C."
Dr. Holbrook knew very little ol
girls, but he thought tbis note, with
its P.S., decidedly girlish. Still ha
made no comment, either verbal or
mental, so flurried was be with knowing that the evil he so much dreaded
had come upon him at last. Had it
been left to bis choice, he would far
lather have extracted every one of
that maiden's teeth, than to bave set
himself up before ber like some horrid ogre, asking what sbe knew. But
the choice was not his, nnd, turning
to the boy, bo snid, laconically, "Tell
her to come."
Most men would have sought for
a glimpse of tbe face under the bonnet tied with IiIhc, but Dr. Holbrook
did not care n picayune whether it
were ugly or fair, though it did strike
him that the voice was singularly
sweet, which, after the boy ha8 delivered bis message, said to the old
man, "Now, grandpa, we'll go home.
I know you must be tired."
Slowly Sorrel trotted down the
street, the blue ribbons fluttering in
the wind, while one little ungloved
hand was seen carefully adjusting
about the old man's shoulders the
ancient camlet cloak which had done
duty for many 11 year, and was needed on this chill April day. The doctor saw all tbis, and the impression
left upon his mind was that Candidate No. 1 was probably a niceisb
kind of a girl, and very good to her
grandfather. But what should he ask
her, and bow demean himself toward
her? Monday afternoon was frightfully near, he thought, as this was
only Saturday; and then, feeling that
he must be ready, he brought out
from the trunk, where, since his arrival in Devonshire, tbey bad been
quietly lying, books enough to have
frightened an older person than poor
little Madeline Clyde, riding slowly
home witb grandpa, and wishing so
much that she'd had a glimpse of Dr.
Holbrook, so as to know what be was
like, and hoping he would give her
a chance to repeat some of the many-
pages of geography and "Parley's
History," which sbe knew by heart.
How sbe would bave trembled could
she have seen tbe formidable volumes
heaped upon his table and waiting for
her. There were French and Latin
grammars, "Hamilton's Metaphysics,"
"Olmstead's Philosophy," "Day's Algebra," "Butler's Analogy," and many
others, into which poor Madeline bad
never so much as looked. Arranging them in a row, and half wishing
himself back again to the days when
he had studied them, the doctor went
out to visit his patients, of which
there were so many that Madeline
Clyde entirely escaped his mind, nor
did she trouble him again until tbe
dreaded Monday came, and the hands
of his watch pointed to two.
"One hour more," he snid to himself, just as tbe roll of wheels and a
cloud of dust announced the approach
of something
Could it be Sorrel nnd the square-
boxed vvngon? Oh, no; far different
from Grandfather Clyde's turnout
were the stylish carriage and the spirited bays dashing down the street,
the colored driver reining them suddenly, not beiore the office door, but
just in front of the white cottage in
the same yard, the house where Dr.
Holbrook boarded, and where, if he
ever married in Devonshire, he would
most   likely   brir*.   his   wife.
"Guy Remington, the very chap of
all others whom I'd rather see, and,
as 1 live, there's Agnes, with Jessie.
Who knew she was in these parts?"
was tbe doctor's mental exclamation,
as, running his fingers through his
hair and making a feint of pulling
up tbe corners of his ratbei limp collar, be hurried out to the carriage,
from which a dashing-looking lady of
thirty, or thereabouts, was alighting.
"Why, Agnes, I beg your pardon,
Mrs. Remington, when did you
come?" he asked, offering his hand to
the lady, wbo, coquettishly shaking
back from ber pretty, dollish face a
profusion of light brown curls, gave
him the tips of her lavender kids,
while sbe told him she bnd come to
Aikenside tbe Saturday before; and
hearing from Guy that the lndy with
whom he boarded was an old friend
of hers, she had driven over to call,
and brought Jessie with her. "Here,
Jessie, speak to the docto'r. He was
poor dear papa's friend," and a very
proper Bigh escaped Agnes Remington's
lips as she pushed a little curly-
haired girl toward Dr. Holbrook.
The lady of the house had 'spied
them by this time, nnd cnme running
down the walk to meet her rather distinguished visitor, wondering, it mny
be, to what she was indebted for Uris
call from one who. since ber marriage with the supposedly wealthy Dr.
Remington, had rather cut her former acquaintances. Agnes was delight*
ed to see her, nnd, as Guy declined
entering the cottage just then, the
two friends disappeared within the
door, while the doctor and Guy repaired to tbe office, the latter sitting
down in the very chair intended for
Madeline Clyde. This reminded the
doctor of his perplexity, and also
brought the comforting thought that
Guy, who hod never failed him yet,
could surely offer some suggestions.
But be would not speak of her just
now; he had other matters to talk
about, arid so, jamming his penknife
into a pine table covered with similar
lams, he said: "Agnes, is seems, has
come to Aikenside, notwithstanding
-ihe declared she never would, when
she found that the whole of the Remington property belonged to your mother,   and   not   your  father."
"Oh, yes, Slie got over her pique
ns soon ns I settled a handsome little
income on Jessie, and, in fii��', on
her too. until she is foolish enough
to marry again, when it will cenre.
nf course, as I do not feci it my duty
to support any man's wife, unless it
be my own, or my father's," wns Guy
Remington's reply, whereupon the
penknife went again into the table,
and this time with so much force
that the point was broken off; but

"She'll hardly marry again, though
Bhe    may.      She's    young���not   ovei

"Twenty-eight, if the family Bible
does not lie; but she'd never forgive
me if she knew 1 told you that. So
let it pass that she's twenty-Bix. She
certainly is not more than three years
your senior, a mere nothing, if you
wish to make her Mrs. Holbrook,"
and Guy's dark eyes scanned curiously
the doctor's face, as if seeking there
for the secret of his proud young
stepmother's anxiety to visit plain
Mrs. Conner that afternoon. But the
doctor only laughed merrily at the
idea of his being father to Guy, his
college chum and long-tried friend.
' Agnes Remington ��� reclining languidly in Mrs. Conner's easy-chair,
and overwhelming her former friend
with descriptions of the gay parties
she hnd attended in Boston, and the
fine sights she saw in Europe, whither her gray-haired husband had taken her for a wedding tour���would not
have felt particularly flattered could
she have seen that smile, or heard
how easily, from talking of her, Dr.
Holbrook turned to another theme, to
Madeline Clyde, expected now almost
every moment. There was a merry
laugh on Guy's part, ns he listened
to the doctor's story, and. when it
was finished, he said: "Why, I see
nothing so very distasteful in examining a pretty girl, and puzzling her,
to see ber blush. I half wish I were
in your place. I should enjoy the
novelty of the thing."
"Oh, take it, then; lake my place,
Guy," the doctor exclaimed, eagerly.
"She does not. know me from Adam.
Here nre books, all you will need. You
went to a district school once a week
when you were staying in the country. You surely have some idea,
while I hnve not the slightest. Will
you, Guy?" be persisted more earnestly, as be beard wheels in the street,
and was sure old Sorrel had come
Guy Remington liked anything savoring of a frolic, but in his mind there
were certain conscientious scruples
touching the justice of the thing, and
so at first he demurred, while the doctor still insisted, until at last he
laughingly consented to commence the
examination, provided the doctor
would sit by and occasionally come
to his aid.
"You must write the certificate, of
course," he said, 'testifying that she
is qualified to teach."
"Yes, certainly, Guy, if she is;
but maybe sho won't be, and my orders are to bo strict."
"How did sbe look?" Guy asked,
and the doctor rcnlied: "Saw nothing
but her bonnet. Came in a queer old
go-giggle of a wagon, such as your
country farmers drive. Guess she
won't be likely ti stir up the bile of
either of us, particularly as I am bullet-proof, and you have been engaged
for years. By the way, when do you
cross the sea again for the fair Lucy?
Rumor says this summer."
"Rumor is wrong, as usual, then,"
was Guy's reply, a soft light stealing
into bis handsome eyes. Then, after
a moment, he added: "Miss Ather-
stone's health is far too delicate for
her to incur the risks of a climate
like ours. If she were well acclimated, I sbould be glad, for it is terribly
lonely  up at Aikenside."
"And do you really think a wife
would make it pleasanter?" Dr. Holbrook asked, the tone of his voice indicating a little doubt as to a man's
being happier for having a helpmate
to share his joys and sorrows.
But no such doubts dwelt in the
mind of Guy Remington. Eminently
fitted for domestic happiness, he looked forward anxiously to the'timewhen
sweet Lucy Atherstone, the fair English girl to whom he had become engaged when, four years before, he visited Europe, should be strong enough
t-i bear transplanting to American
soil. Twice since his engagement he
had visited her, finding her always
lovely, gentle, and yielding. Too
yielding, it sometimes seemed to him,
while occasionally the thought had
flashed upon him that she did not
possess a very remarkable depth of
intellect. But he said to himself, he
did not care; he hated strong-minded
women, and would far rather his wife
should be a little weak than mascu
line, like his Aunt Margaret, who
sometimes wore bloomers, and advocated women's rights. Yes, he greatly preferred Lucy Atherstone, as she
was, to a wife like the stately Mar
garet, or like Agnes, bis pretty step
mother, who only thought how slu
could best attract'attention; and as
it had never occurred to him that
there might be a happy medium, that
a woman need not be brainless to be
feminine and gentle, he was satisfied
with his choice, as well he might be.
for a fairer, sweeter flower nevei
bloomed than Lucy Atherstone, his affianced bride. Guy loved to think ot
Lucy, and as tlie doctor's remarks
brought her to his mind, he went off
into a reverie concerning her, becoming so lost in thought that until the doc,

Will Find New Strength Through the
Use  of  Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills
A great many young men and women are suddenly seized with weakness. Their appetite fails them,
tbey tire on the least exertion, and
become pale and thin. Tbey do not
feel any specific pain���just weakness.
But that weakness is dangerous, it
is a sign that the blood is thin and
watery; that it needs building up.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will restore
lost strength because they actually
make new, rich blood���tbey will help
you. Concerning them Mr. Alfred
Lepage, of St. Jerome, Que., says:
"For several years I have been employed in a grocery, and up to the
age of seventeen 1 had always enjoyed the best of health. But suddenly
my strength began to leave me; I
grew pale, thin and extremely weak.
Our family doctor ordered a complete
rest and advised me to remain out
of doors as much as possible, so 1
went to spend several weeks with
an uncle who lived in the Lauren-
tides. I was in the hope tbat the
bracing mountain air would help me,
but it didn't, and I returned home
in a deplorable state. I was subject
to dizziness, indigestion and general
weakness. One day I read of a case
very similar to my own cured
through the Ube of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and I decided to give
them a trial. After taking four boxes
of the pills I felt greatly improved,
so continued their use for some time
longer and they fully cured me. I
am now able to go about my work
as well as ever I did and have nothing but the greatest praise for Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills."
The blojd���good blood���is the secret of health. If the blood is not
pure the body becomes diseased or
the nerves shattered. Keep the blood
pure and disease cannot exist. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills make rich, red

almost nny modern language, one
letter being taken from one set, o**e
from another, and so on. The persin
who would open the lock must fi'st

Nine-Mile Journ.y  In the Thames by
Fifty-Year-Old   Professor.
Prof. Jules Gautier, the well-known
London swimmer, recently performed
i remarkable feat in the Thames, covering the nine-mile course from Richmond to Putney with his arms and
legs manacled. Despite his fifty years,
he swam the distance in 2h. 54min.
At 5 p. in, his wrists were bound together with manacles of leather and
steel, separated hy two inches of steel
rivets, while bis ankk-s were united
in a similar manner. He then dived
off a boat moored under Richmond
bridge, while tin- crowd on the bridge
cheered the daring swimmer.
Gautijr at one adopted the stroke
which he used all through his great
performance. H** kept on his right
side, his manacled bands being
brought out of tbe water us in the
overhand stroke, and when they de-
scjndcd into the wator he brought
them down side by side so that they
formed a large scoop. He could not
kick in the ordinary way with his
legs, so he adopted a motion like that
of the screw of a steamer, which helped him along at a wondarful pace.
In fact, all through Gautier progressed ut a rati* which few unfettered
swimmers could hop" to equal. He
did the first half-mile to Richmond,
lock in 11 minutes and 2 seconds,
keeping up an average of twenty-eight
strokes a minute.
The first three miles occupied 43
minutes, 35 seconds, and at the end
of the first hour exactly four miles
had been covered. Barnes railway
bridge, five miles from Richmond, was
reached in 1 hour 18 minutes and 22
seconds, and shortly afterwards the
swimmer experienced bis "bad time."
He reached a stretch of nearly dead
water, anil his tusk proved nearly
heart-breaking. But be never rested,
and when he pissed Hammersmith
bridge the worst was over. The seven
and a quarter miles had been covered
in 2 hours and If) minutes. The tide
was then of much more assistance.
Exactly at fo'ir minutes to eight,
two hours and fifty four minutes from
the time be had started, Gautier swam
through the central arch of Putney
"I do not feel at nil tired." he told
the pressmen who followed in a boat,

Increase   In   tbe   Number  of   British
In two years tha number of people
engaged in the navigation of ships
registered in the United Kingdom had
increased by mnre than 11,000, and
last year reaeh_d a total -of over
170,000. The tonnage in actual em
ployment rose in the same time from
10,278,000 to 11,035.000, and it is satisfactory to know that in the manning
of these eytra ships the British seaman has more than held his own.
Indeed, the number of foreigners on
British ships has declined since 1904
by nearly 2 000 while the Lascars
have increased by less than that figure. Aocording to the annual statement of the navigation and shipping
of the United Kingdom, issued from
the Board of Trade, the nationalities
of the crews serving on British ships
last year and in the two previous
years were:

British tonnage den-fine from ths

tonnage, the figures being 38.276,000

A Polite  Beast.
The cheetah is considered by some
as among the most gentlemanly of
beasts. A Btory from Otoacamund illustrates what fine manners the animal has���at times, at any rate. Three
Calcutta visitors to the hill Btation
were out on a tramp, when they were
overtaken by a thunderstorm, accompanied by sheets of rain.
Tbey spied a cave, in the side of the
hill, and into it they rushed. When
the rain stopped, tliey came out, and
to their surprise found a cheetah sitting licking the heavy wet off his
waistcoat  and his paws.
It was his cave, but rather than deprive his visitors of their shelter the
polite creature hnd sat outside in the
driving tempest. With a friendly mew,
and gracefully wagging his tail, the
cheetah bade adieu to his gupsts and
walked with dignity it**1'* 'mh house.

themselves along almost all having
their feet frozen nud bound up In rags
and pieces of sheepskin and dying of
hunger. We then saw what was left

water Fells, and without food for four
days and four nights, Thomas Martin-
dale, a nine-year-old Penrith boy, has
just been safely restored to his parents. He "was only saved by meeting with some cows. "1 got into u
mist on the White Boy," he said,
"and I could not find my way. I
walked about for a long time. At
night I came to a farm, and the farmer showed me the way back, but he
did not give mo any food. I lost my
way again, and 1 sheltered in a cave.
The next morning the mist was as
thick as ever. 1 walked all day, and
drank water from pools. At night" I
rested in another cave. A little lamb
came into the cave and kept me warm.
The next day," he continued, "I kept
0.1 walking, but I could not see a
house anywhere. I slept that night
in a cattle shelter, and I spent the
next night in the same place. The
following morning I saw some cows,
and I knew someone would come to
milk them. I waited there until a
man came and took me away." The
boy was brought to the house of Mr.
Leek, at Troutbjck Parte, Windermere, where he was well cared lor.
He was taken to his home later.
How Color Affects Dew.
Color occasionally affects the formation of dew materially, as may be
proven by a simple experiment. Place
three pieces of board���one white, another green, and another black���in
such a position that they may have
the sun on them all day, and then
leave them exposed to the air all
night. A clear, cool night should be
chosen for the experiment, ior dew
rarely forms when it is cloudy. If all
the conditions are normal, it will be
found in the morning that there is a
good deal ol dew on the white board
much less on the green board, and
still less on thc black board; indeed,
there may hi none at all on the latter
The difference is due to the fact that
the three boards absorb the sun's ray_
unequally, and are therefore of different temperatures at the close of the
day. The black board absorbs thc
most heat, and the white board the
least. They all begin to lose their
heat as soon 11s the buii's rays leave
them, the white board cooling first,
the green board next, and the black
board last. As soon as they become
cool enough to condense the watery
vapor of the air in contact with them,
dew will begin to form on them. It
may be that the black board will absorb more heat during the day than
it can throw off at night; if so, no
dew will form on it

Experiment* Show That It la a Valuable Ration For Fowl*.
A writer in the American Poultry
Advocate has the following to say of
the value of skim milk as a partial
ration for fowls:
The West Virginia experiment Btation has recently made some systematic tests to prove the value of
skim milk for laying hens. The first
test covered 122 days. The twenty-
two hens fed skim milk laid 1,244 eggs
as compared with 090 eggs laid by tho
twenty-two hens fed mash wet with
water. In another test sixty hens fed
the skim milk ration laid 802 eggs ln
thirty-seven days as compared with
632 eggs laid by a similar lot fed no
skim milk. Other tests gave about
the same comparative results. The
conductois of these experiments estimate that under the prevailing conditions nnd with eggs selling for 20 or
25 cents per dozen the skim milk used
for moistening the mash had a feeding value of from 1% to 2 cents per
quart. That milk is one of the best
general foods for almost all stock and
human beings, too, Is recognized by
everybody and needs no special proof.
That It should bave better results ln
nutrition than just plain water ls really self evident. When I feed skim
milk to lay fowls, I do expect to get
some benefit from It. But It ls a
satisfaction to know that It Is worth,
for feeilin.; purposes, the comparatively hlRh figure of 1'/_ or 2 sents a quart.
At the Ontario experimental farm
some tests of the value of skim milk,
whey, etc., as a a addition to grains
for fattening poultry have recently
been conducted. From a summary of
data on the relative value of whey,
skim milk and numerous feeds for fattening chickens It appears that ,*.ulu
was most cheaply made on a mixture
of equal parts of cornmeal, oatmeal
and shorts mixed with whey, the cost
being 4 cents per pound, and was
most expensive (6 cents per pound) on
11 mixture of equal parts of cornmeal,
shorts and oatmeal, with 30 per cent of
pork scrap, water being used to wet
up the ration. It wns found that sour
skim milk (milk that Is thickened) ls
without doubt the best liquid to mix
with grain rations where a uniform
product is wanted and more so where
white fleshed chickens are In demand;
also that sweet skim milk has not so
high a feeding vniue for grown chickens ns sour milk and that whey Is a
better food than Is generally considered.   It seems to aid digestion.

Preparing Broilers For Market.
A fat broiler is quite a rarity. Thc
best thnt can be done ln general Is to
have them plump, for tlie natural tendency of the chick ls to use all nutriment for growth and development.
When the birds are nearly large
enough for the market, they should be
given all the fattening feed they will
eat, and for this purpose corn In various forms should be fed freely. They
will digest more feed If fed ground
than If whole or cracked. A moistened
mash consisting of about two-thirds
cornmeal and one-third bran by bulk
ls good. Cooked potatoes are good,
and milk, with a little sugar added,
will hasten fattening.
Newspapers In China.
Native Chinese papers state that the
Chinese press will in future be controlled by the ministry of posts and
communications. The following new
laws are proposed: The pi ess shall
r. it be permitted to attack either the
Government or the Administration.
Nothing ol the nature of a personal
attack shall be published, nor shall
any secret document of the Government be inserted. These laws will be
put in operation after the advice of
tha ministers has been secured.
Accidents to Seamen.
Deaths  from  accidents  among seamen number fifty-three per 10,000, five
times higher than In "dangerous occupations."
Barleycorns. .
The table of measures says that
three barleycorns make one inch, and
so they do. Wheu the standards of
measures were first established, three
barleycorns, well dried, were taken
and laid end to end, three being understood to make au inch In length.
Liver Trouble In Fowl*.
When a few hens ln a flock show
symptoms of advanced stages of liver
trouble, It Is reasonable to conclude
that others In the flock ure ln the
earlier stages. Give the flock a grass
run If possible. If uot, give green
food liberally, avoid the excessive uso
ot corn, aud try to secure a considerable amount of exercise for the fowls.
This Is best accomplished for fowls in
confinement by feeding the grain in
litter and feediug rather sparingly at
first. This reduction of diet should not
be continued too long. If It ls, the
birds become weakened nnd reduced in

The Feather of the Hen.
The shaft of the feather is the stem
of the feather, that part which Is filled
with pith and which bears the barbs.
The barbs are the side branches of the
feather. Shafting means that the shaft
of the plumed portion of the feather ls
either lighter or darker thau the web
of the feather, The web of tne feather
is the flfit or plumed portion of the
feather made up of a series of barbs on
either side of tlie shaft.
Fattening Crates.
Fattening orates am made with slat

the ratiou being too one sided. A little

this trouble, or use cut clover'and .ut
