The seventh annual exhibition
of the District of Surrey Agricultural Association, held iu tho Oddfellow's Hall on Wednesday, was
the most successful of recent years.
The woather proved favorable, and
there was a satisfactory attendance
of visitors us shown 'by Iho gate
receipts. All seemed lo enjoy the
holiday vory thoroughly and many
spoke in complimentary terins of
the exhibits.
In slock the entries, though not
large, were more numerous than
for the past three or four years.
Mr, A. Milton showed some line
llolsteins, and in grade cattle there
were some excellent animals. Tho
exhibit of horses was fair, hut per
hups not as good as it ought to he
in this well settled district, though
as usual there were some line
beasts. II. E. Underwood was the
prinlcipal exhibitor in long-wooled
sheep, and I1'. AlcRae made a good
showing in short-wooled. As
usual, Thos. Shannon carried off
tho honors in Berkshire swine.
The show of poultry was much better than formerly, and some fine
hirds were entered in competition,
the largest exhibitor being S. Hi
Shannon,
About 1.30 tlie judges inside had
got through witli their labors, and
the hall was formally opened to
the public by Mr. C. D. Moggridge,
President of the Association. The
fine display appeared to be quite a
surprise to many, who freely expressed their admiration of many
of the exhibits. The large hall
wub tested to its full capacity, and
in some lines the accommodation
was scarcely as ample as it should
have been. The display of plants
and flowers, especially, was undulv
crowded, the exhibit being much
larger than on former occasions,
and this notwithstanding that
dahlias; zinnias, and other border
flowers usually shown, were this
year completely destroyed by the
severe frost of last week. The
ladies were well represented in ttn
extensive exhibit of articles of
utility and of art, the whole presenting a handsome appearance and
attracting a full measure of admiring interest. In fruit there was
a much larger display than formerly, the exhibit occupying all one
side of the large hall, and containing many exquisite specimens of
apples, pears, plums, etc., not to
forget a dish of delicious peaches
shown hy Reeve Armstrong. No
doubt the exhibit of fruit will go
on increasing and improving from
year to year, according as new orchards come into bearing, but already the progress made is certainly highly creditable to the farmers
jof Surrey. The largest showing
was made by Geo. Boothroyd, with
H. T. Thrift close behind. Dairy
products ranked high for quality,
quantity and tasty appearance. In
the words of Mr. King, manager of
the Delta creamery) who acted as
judge, it was "a beautiful display
of splendid butter," a compliment
no doubt echoed by many visitors;
if one might judge from the interest
manifested in the butter department. There were also admirable
exhibits in bread, cakes and pastry,
the latter being exquisite.
Grain was about average as to
quantity, but the quality was a
matter of general remark. The exhibit embraced wheat, oats, barley,
peas; and beans. Roots wero good.
It is probably true that the late
long spell of dry weather was unfavorable for the root crop in this
district, but one would hardly
reach that conclusion by inspecting
the magnificent specimens of roots
and vegetables on exhibition on
Wednesday. The exhibits were
numerous and all were of superior
quality.
The above sketch is no doubt
very incomplete, but really the writer) in the joint capacities of secretary of the Agricultural Society
nnd reporter, editor and printer of
SURREY Times, had a rather heavy
contract this week.  Following is

A Living picture of Life's moving panorama wus presented at Broadway tuid
Twenty-third Btreetone day lost week.
It wan a procession. It was a procession
formed by chance, but the utmost deliberation oonld uot havo mode it toll n
plainer Btory of lifo.
First came a wagon piled high with
baby carriages—-frail littln vehicles to
carry frail "Inches of humanity" as
they began the uncertain journey over
the tortuous ways of this world.
Theu followed a pony cart carrying
two laughing boys advanced only far
enough in tho great highway of lifo to
realize that thorn woro roses in tho
path) but not to know of tlio thorns.
Behind the boys, in a dogcart drawn
by a high stoppiugaob, woro two youths
ou tho threshold of manhood. One
woro on tbo lapel of his coat h collogo
pin on it bit of blue ribbon, tho othor a
pin of difforent design ou a yellow knot
of silk. They woro engaged in earnest
conversation, apparently suggested by
ii highly colored theater poster representing 11 young woman who WOS advertised
to appear ou somo stago
A clanging K<mK was closo behind,
and a cable ear crowded with impatient
business men wus hurrying its load to
their posts to mako tho daily start in
tho wild race for money.
Next ii hundsomo pair of horses, u
stylish curriago, coachman and footman
on iho box, and iu the carriage tt rotund,
red faced man, past middle ago, and bo*
sido bim u richly arrayed woman trying
to appear to bo on tho sunny sido of that
middle lino. Pros-iority was written on
overy part of tho equipage.
Thou cumo an ash cart, and its dust,
borne on the wind, reached and annoyed

"1 don't seo why lie can't," responded
tho farmer in a noncommittal way.
"Then I'll take a ride," said the
stronger, vaulting into tho wagon nnd
making himself comfortable.
After tlireo or four miles hud been

"It's quite a distance to Vineland."
"Yes, it is a distance," admitted the
farmer.
Another mile was passed, and then
the stranger Inquired i
"About how far is it to Vineland?"
"Well," replied tho fanuor meditatively, "keepin straight ahead tho
way we're gotu now, it's about 25,000

HE  MAY BE A LORD.
W. W, Ant*..- Said to Do Tii Training ftor
thi' ItritIi-li Peerage.
England continues to spoak of William Waldorf Astor as an American,
aud America laughs at bim as uu imitation Englishman, but the truth is he
is so much au [^ukHhIidiuii that ho is actually slated for tho peerage, This may
seem incredible in America, ami yot it
is a fad.
You am probably aware that Mr.
Waldorf Astor has already become a
.British subject, anil since ho natural-
i/.eil himself hero ho has enjoyed preferential eleeliou to that select c'-eloof
England's territorial magnates, tnat political holiest of tho holies, tho Carlton
club. A further stop iu his upward
(light was his nominal ion for tho bench
nf the OOlUlty of Middlesex, anil ho will
bo forthwith gazetted justice of tho
pence. That is an honor conferred by the
lord high ohaucollor, noting for tho
crown, on llm nomination of tho lord
lieutenant of tho enmity. It entitles tho
holder to rank as justice of the quorum
and is au inevitable preparatory stop to
higher rank. So far so gootl, but tho
half has not yet been told. He has been
offered a baronetcy, but, not quite content wilh that, stipulates fur tho rank
nf a baron at least anil will undoubtedly
succeed.
Let mo explain tho difference in rank
between u baronet aud a haron. Tho
former Is tho lowest order of hereditary
rank aud entitles the holder to bond-
ilressoil as sir and his spouse as lady, lt
is in point of procedure rank 00 aud permits thu holder to sit in tho houso of
commons, whereas that of baron entitles
tho bolder to the rank, title and dignity
of my lord ami a seat iu the houso of
lords. Tho stylo of address to tho spouse
of the holder of the title is still my
lady. Tho rank of boron is tho lowest
of the fivo orders of peers and entitles
the family of tho holders to bo known
uml addressed as honorable,
Lord lloaeonsflohl onco said that thero
was "a certain moral force in a name
and a dignity in a double barreled
name. " Air. Astor is of the same opinion. Ho writes and styles himself Waldorf Astor. So iu bonks of reference look
under W ond not under A. Mr. Waldorf Astor, however, is doing well aud
is appreciated here. He has always been
in good hands, having from tho first
boon chaperoned by that lino old English
gentleman, that sturdy old courtier,
Christopher Sykes.
Success in social lifo in England do-
ponds entirely on whose hands ono gets
in, and it is not always that tho most
Written nhont aro the most desirable.
In tho coho of Mr. Waldorf Astor, his
chaperon is not much known outside,
but Christopher is a man of raro judgment nud unsullied character, and, what
is moro, ono of H, li. H. 's set, high in
the favor of Queen Victoria und socially
a power behind tho throne. From tbe
standpoint of practical politics tho giving of social rank to Mr. Waldorf Astor
is brilliant. It will tend to attract other
multimillionaires, aud when wo got tho

Ever since Ihe sponge fisheries of tho
lliihuiuns alld tlio gulf coast of Florida
plmweil signs of becoming exhausted efforts have been made to cultivate sponges
on farms or artificial beds, and moro re
rent ly science has tried to imitate tho
genuine article hy converting tho soft
tlber of tlio QOOOOUUt leaves anil shells
Into sponges of commercial value.
Sponge farming is now ft successful industry, and hundreds nf acres in tho gulf
of Mexico along Iho Florida coast aro
planted wilh "sponge cuttings" and
seeds. Tho work is uot dissimilar in
many rospecls to oysler culture. Tho
young sponges aro planted in water
along tho const varying from one to live
fathoms in depth.
A few years ago the llsh commissioners had their attention called lo the
sponge fisheries Off tllO Florida coast,
and after (hiding that the beds woro being rapidly depleted of (he best Stock,
an exam innl ion of the Usher ies was made
to ascertain some way of preserving
them. Tho specimens of sponge taken to
Washington in Ihe nutumn of Iho year
wero found to bo reproductive if the
proper conditions wero supplied, The
sponges in tho autumn were found to develop masses of protoplasm or spores,
which in tho spring of tho year were liberated. Those spores contained thesmiill
reproductive particles from which the
sponges davolopod. Somo of tho sponges
experimented with did not reproduce
their kind at all, and it was found that
iu order to cultivate (ho sponges it was
necessary to plant sponges that produced certain cells that contained the
ova or egg anil others that represented
spermatozoa.
A small sponge farm was established
at Washington, and then others along
the Florida coast as experiments. Theso
proved successful, so that private individuals went into the business, Thoro
aro many acres of Bpongo farms near
Koy West, and others ut Ancloto, Flu.,
aud noar Tampa These farms wero first-
supplied wilh thoir seeds from tho fish
commissioners, but now they aro obtained direct from tho sponge fisheries.
In tho autumn of tho year tho various
kinds of sponges aro purchased by tho
sponge culturist, who generally takes on
assortment that is sure to supply him
with both tho malo and female cells.
Tho beds, or farms, aro usually located at somo woll protected placo along
tho coast and fenced in with natural formations and artificial dams. Tho sponge
seeds aro kept in small "pounds"
through the winter, whero tho masses of
protoplasm develop and grow. Early in
tho spring theso spores nro 1 Unrated in
tho larger body of water, whero they
soon swim around. Tho eggs continue to
grow rupidly, and in a short timo attach
themselves to tho rocks or coral formation at tho bottom of tho water.
It is very difficult to get tho right
location for uu ideal sponge bed An
arm of the sen whero tho salt water
flows in freoly thnt has a natural hard
bottom is tho best Rocks, stones and
other substances can be dropped at the
bottom for the sponges to fasten themselves ta The lagoon is then dammed
up, so that when tho seed is put in fresh
it cannot float out to sea again. Somo
simply throw their sponges in such a
lagoon in tho fall of tho year and let the
protoplasm develop there. Under proper
cultivation tho sponges thus raised aro
superior to those found in the sex Only
tho liest variotics are propagated. The
"sheopswool" is the choicest, with a texture fine, soft aud strong. Theso sponges
sell for from $1.00 to $.! n pound. The
"yellow" Bpongo is next iu quality, aud
its price is much less than tho "sheeps-
wooL" The "grass" spongo raised is
very limited, for its value is too small
to pay ono for tho trouble.
After the Bpongo farm is once started
thero is littlo more to do with it except
at harvesting time. Tho sponges grow
slowly and usually throo years elapse beforo any are pulled up Theu only the
choicest, full grown oucs are gathered.
The others aro left to produce uow seeds
und to reach a burger size. Tlie picking
of sponges in a farm of this nature is
much simpler than to raise them from
the deep waters of the gulf. Armed with
a loug leaded polo a boatman can easily
haul up tho sponges that ho needs, and
iu tho courso of a dny ho could gather
threo times tho qnautity pulled up by
the regular spougo fishermen off the
coast. The water is comparatively shallow over tlio artificial boils, and uot disturbed by tides, floating debris or winds.
It is also very clear and pellucid, so that
ouo can see tho bottom for a long dis-
toneo down. Occasionally une finds a
spong- farm whore deep sea sponges are
cultivated, and it is necessary, then, to
havo a diver to gather them Hero again
the work is mado easier. Tho diver runs
no risk from sharks, tides or other inconveniences that daily beset thoso off
tho coast
The value of tho spongo farm increases
every year despite tho annual harvest
that is taken therefrom. Tho now
sponges are spreading until every square
inch of tho bottom and sides of tho poud
are covered with young and old spougos.
If no diseases or enemies got into the
bed, the spouges will thon yield euor-
inous crops year after year. Tho annual
income from n good sized bed rouges
from $1,000 to $10,000, according to its
size, location and ago.—Philadelphia

AROnBIUIOP kain. In oarly life
Archbishop Kuin was a missionary priest
iu West Virginia, and traversed on foot
or horseback tho mountain fastnesses
anil valleys of that sparsely settled
country, su Her ing many aud severe privations and hardships lu his efforts to
spread the gospel of his church. Ho
never hesitated in thoso pioneer days to
swim his horso across swollen torrents
iu his round of duty. Indeed his oarly
experiences wero such us to admirably
fit him for fhe larger duties which iu
later years Im has been culled upon to
perform,
A well known Virginian says of him:
"I grow up in tho mountains of tho
mother of presidents without having
heard that there was such a church as
the Cathollo until Iho beginning of (ho
war, and my first intelligence ou that
point wasnf Archbishop KcunnunilArchbishop Kain, huth of whom penetrated
tho fastnesses of the hill country and
brought tho news of the exigence nf the

whilo church buildings, wilh a cross on
top, began tn appear among the mountains, and thu.*: when I left the old state
of Virginia tho names of Kain uml Keauo
woro equally well known aud revered. "
Archbishop Kuin is perhaps not so
scholarly a man as was Archbishop Ken-
rick in his prime, but his experiences
have given him wider knowledge of human nature, its trials, sufferings and
•druggies. Hit is regarded as a man of
unusual diplomacy and courage, firmness and strength, and withal of mild

He is but 13 yonrs of age, and his name
is Roy Earl York. He is tho bou of Mr.
nnd Mrs. Z. A. York of Warreusburg,
Mo.
Roy was born at Abileuo, Kan.,
March 15, 1882. From curly childhood
his mind developed a strong religious
trend. His favorite childish pastime was
to "play meeting" with his little companions, and he would not only tulk and
pray himself, but encourage playmates
to do likewise.
In 1898 tho York family moved to
Warreusburg, Mo., and in November of
that year the lad, who showed himself
to be a boy of much rioro than ordinary
intelligence, aside from his religious
precocity, was baptized and became a
member of the Baptist church under the
ministry of Rev. H. A. Ktaughler, who
seems to have been tho first minister to
discover Roy'a Strong inclination toward
evangelistic work uud gave him overy
opportunity for labor along religious
lines.
Roy preached his first sermon on Fob.
ft, 18114, during a revival meeting which
was being conducted hy tho Rev. Mr.
Slaughter at Knob Nostor, Mo., his text
being taken from the fifty-third chapter
of Isaiah. Considering tho extreme
youth of the preacher, it is said to havo
been a good sermon and a groat surprise to all who heard it. He continued
preaching nt Knob Nostor for several
days, attracting largo congregations. A
short timo ago the Baptist church of
Warreusburg gavo him a license to
preach, though ho has not yot been regularly ordained as a minister, preferring
to wait for that rite until he has com*
ploted his education. He expects to attend the Southern Baptist seminary at
Louisville. Since he began preaching
he has spoken at various places in Missouri and Kansas.
Roy has just passed his thirteenth
birthday and still wears kneo breeches
and the broad boy's collar, which give
him a vory youthful appearance. His '
voico still retains its childish treble, but
is strong and clear.
In a series of evangelistic sermons
soon to bo inaugurated at Pertle Springs,
Ma, Roy York will be assisted by Rev.

European royalty is cursed with execrable tooth, tho result of consanguineous
marriages throughout countless generations, and oven tho princes of tho reigning houso of Sweden, who arc of plebeian
origin, tho grandfather of tho present
king having been born us a peasant at
Pan, on tho French slope of the Pyrenees,
Buffer from barred teeth, necessitating
much science uud skill in treat ment. It
Is only natural therefore that they should
havo frequent recourse to dentists, and
Inasmuch us denial surgery has attained
a greater degree of science nnd proficiency in the United Slates than iu Europo, it is American doclors, as a rule,
who havo been inlrnstcd with tho welfare of royalty's jaws.
Perhaps tho best known and most famous of all theso American court dentists iu Europe has been Dr. Thomas
Evans in Paris, who has luid the honor
of introducing his forceps Into almost
overy royal mouth in Christendom.
Hut perhaps the crowned heads wilh
whom ho was most intimate during his
professional career wero Napoleon 111
and Empress Eugenie. Many a lime ho
was consulted by both on mailers of importance which certainly had nothing to
do with teeth, while Iho emperor would
frequently avail himself of llm doctor's
professional trips lo foreign courts to intrust him with some communication
whioh could not well bo conveyed
through diplomat lo channels. And, as
everybody knows, when tho empire was
overthrown, after Iho battle of Sedan, it
was l>r. Thomas Evans, who, first of
all, concealed Ihefugilivnenipressin his
Parisian mansion, and afterward conveyed her ut personal risk from tho 1110
tropolis to tho seaside, whence she es-
oapod to England on tllO yacht of Sir
John llurgoyne.
There was nn American dentist who
was implicated In tho somewhat sensational incidents that led lo tho sudden
removal of tho seiuiilemonted queen of
Kouiuania from Venice a few yoars ago.
After tho Roumanian government had
exacted fnun the king, under threat of
depriving him of his throne, a promise to
put nn end to tho engagement, which
tlio queen had arranged between her
nephew, Crown Princo Ferdinand, and
her ambitious favorite aud maid of honor, Holen Vacarescu, her majesty had
withdrawn, a prey to tho most violent
excitement, to Venice, where her conduct became socxtravugunt as to attract
much attention nnd to necessitate the
journey post haste of King Charles all
the way from Bucharest to tho city of
tho lagoon.
His first step on arriving wus to dismiss her cut ire entourage, tho two most
prominent members of which, next to
the maid of honor, were hor Alsatian
secretary, M. Seheffer, and her American dentist, both of whom wero credited with exercising influence of a hypnotic nature upou tho half crazy queen.
She was subsequently removed to Germany and kept for threo years under
closo restraint in ouo uf the Rhino cos-
ties of her brother, the Princo of Wied.
It wns another American dentist, too,
who almost led to tho deposition of the
late king of Wurttemberg, over whom he
had acquired so great a power of persuasion that the king cut himself adrift
from almost all the associations of his
younger days, holding aloof from relatives aud nobles. The king was finally
compelled to choose between dismissing
his American favorite or abdicating.
Naturally he accepted tho former, but
he gilded up the pill for his frieud by
overwhelming bim with honors and
gift*.
Finally there was tho American dentist of tho late Khedive Tewfik nt Cairo,
who, perhaps inadvertently, bccuino the
means of communicating mnny a useful
piece of information to tho English government The klicdivo hnd tho habit of
leaving all confidential documents in his
pockets, where thoy would be found by
his European servant at nighttime. This
man was afflicted not only with bad
teeth, but also with a loose tongue, and
ou his visits to the dentist wonld communicate to him bits of informal ion acquired through perusal of theso papers.
Although Lord Cromer, tho English
envoy, hod magnificent teeth, yet they
seemed to lie in almost duily need of
treatment, and as he is a miui of remarkable astuteness he hnd little difficulty in
worming out of the dentist the secrets
imparted by the khedivo's valet.—Chicago Record.

LOPSIDED  HENS.
How a Cape  Kllsnlielli   Man  Produced a
llri'i'il of -NitiiM r;ttrliiTri.
Speaking of hens reminds me of a
worthy townsman of ours, .1. Fairfield
Tuttle, who had a small patch of strawberries so situated that only a fence,
aud a poor ouo at that, divided them
from a neighbor's benyard, and theso
same hens bothered our friend very
much by getting through the fence and
scratching up tlio strawberry plants.
Our friend tried many ways to rid
himself of them, but failed until ono
day ho saw his neighbor in tho act of
setting another hen.
Now. it's necessary for yon to know
that Iho hens above mentioned wero of
what is known nn the Shanghai breed
and had very long legs. It occurred to
onr friend Tuttle that ho saw a way out
of tho difficulty. So procuring half a
dozen bantam (short legs) eggs ho stolo
over during thi- night, took out six of
the eggs that were under the hen and
replaced them with tho six bantam.
What was the result? When tho chicks
were hatched, each one had 0110 short
and ouo long leg, und whon they would
stand on tho short leg and try to scratch
with tho long one they would ouly succeed in throwing themselves over.
When they would stand on tho long leg,
the short one would not reach the
ground by several inches, aud so in tho
matter of scratching thoy wore not in it,
so to speak.—Cape Elizabeth Sentinel

me that I could barely gasp for water.
"I went to the hospital in July and
they dingnoscd my cane as above stated.
It was when the olouds were the darkest that the first glint of sunshine came.
Mr. Shelmerdiue, a friend who lives
around at 18*14 Clementine street, said
to me oue day, 'Mrs. Bowen, did you
ever try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale Peoplo?' I had never heard of
the niodioiue. but iii my condition
eould not turn a deaf ear to anything
that offered relief. It was after considerable thought and investigation
that I conoluded to discontinue all the
medicine I wus taking, including cod
liver oil, ami depend entirely upou
Pink Pills. I began to take the pills,
at first witli but little encouragement
The first sign of improvement was a
warmth and a tingling sensation in my
limbs. Finally the oough disappeared,
my chest lost its soreness and I began
to gain flesh until I was fifteen pounds
heavier. All this I owe to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I cannot praise
them too highly."
Mrs. Bowen is a kindly faced lady
of middle age, a church member well
known nud highly esteemed. She
looks today well nnd strong, and it
seems almost impossible that sho was
ever given up by eminent physicians as
an incuruble consumptive. Yet suoh
is the onso beyond all dispute.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all
tho elements necessary to give new life
nud richness to the blood and restore
shattered nerves. They are for sale by
nil druggists, or mny be had by mail
from Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Sohouectndy, N. Y., for 50o per
box, or six boxes for $2.50.
Wonder*, at Minute Animal Lire.
Tlie following, which might very appropriately bear Iho heading of "A Wonder of Woudors," is from tho pen of Sir
Robert S. Ball, F. R. S., astronomer
royal of Ireland: "Tho microscopo
teaches us that there lire animals so wonderfully minute that if a thousand of
them wero ranked abreast thoy could
easily swim, without being thrown out
of order, through the eye of tho finest
eamhrie noodlo ever made. Yet each of
tho minute creatures is n highly organize.! number of part ieles, OftpoblO of moving about, of limling und devouring food
and of behaving in all PHpeoM as becomes an animal as distinguished frum
a fragment of unorganized matter. " The

The Secret ot Preach Cooking.
Tho gentle bent Is said mho the secret
of tho superior delicacy and richness of
French cooking. With a gentle heat and
tight covers wo may hnvo just tho
amount of juice wo liko iu our vegetables. A glaueo will decide this, or per*
haps the ear, if tho hand nt tho same
timo rests on tlio cover. Many kinds of
meat may bo cooked in this way to the
best advantage. A rump steak, threo or
four inches thick, kept closoly covered
and cooked iu its own juices alone, will
bu far moro tender than when put into
thu oven, and this without boating and
without fat, tho latter having been trimmed off closely.—New York World.

that, it wim said, could be heard above

TO RIDE ASTRIDE.
A DKldod  Skirt WhlOh  Finds l'opulnritv
Among Cliluauu Horsewomen.
Emancipation from skirts is one of
tho privileges which thu advanced woman has long been
contending for,
and tho prevailing popularity of
bicycling and
other outdoor 0X-
oroiNOH for worn*
(eu gives a sudden
and consilium bio
impetus to that
long delayed ro-
fonn. Bloomors
nml dividod
skirts no longer
oxeito wonder
when seen on tho
highways, and
tho dav when the
miss woods' DrviDBPhorsowoinon
RKiiiT. mny ride astride
man fashion without four of criticism is
at hand. ThoshloNiiddlo has always boon
a serious handicap, ami Miss Worn Is, an
enterprising Chicago woman, has invented a costume which enables her to
discard it without derogation of hor
womanly modesty nnd dignity.
The lower garment, of this costumo
may bo culled a divided skirt, but practically it resembles a pair of vory wido
trousers, The two skirts, each a third
of a yard in width, aro fastened in a
belt ut tho waiflt, uud gathered in with
a row of plaits at fhe middle of tho
front and hack. Theso plaits givo tho
divided garment tho appearance of a
single skirl, and Iho fullness of each
skirt ut tho bottom completes the illusion, A panel almost uh wido ns tho apparent width of tho skirt falls on euch
side, from tho bolt almost to tho foot,
whioh adds to the effectiveness and conventional appearance of the costume
when the wearer is astride a horse, Tho
improvement claimed- for this costume
ovor the ordinary divided skirt is that
there Is uo clumsy fullness ut tho bottom.
Tho skirt luiugs straight, nnd is no wider than uu ordinary riding habit. It dis
plays less of tho contour of tho figure
than tho regular costumo used with the
sidesaddle.
Miss Woods introduced tho innovation
as n result of her experience in Palestine. Aftor much discomfort and several mishaps iu riding in a dilapidated
sidesaddle sho ono day boldly threw her
leg across the horse's bnck and rode thut
wny all dny before any ono discovered
her. Thon sho refused to ride any other
way. All tho Arabian women ride
astride, and she followed tho custom of
tho country during tho rest of hor stay
thero. With the remembrance of the
comfort experienced on thut trip sho
decided to adopt man's fashion iu Chicago, and did so, with tho result that
her example is being followed by a
largo and increasing number of women
in tlio Windy City.
CHIEF PENCIL PUSHER.
Louh N. Mej-mrgea In President of the Is-
it-rant li nml League of I'reaa Clubs,
The members of tho International
League uf Press Chilis, who huvo recently been enjoying tho profuse hospitality
of Philadelphia, did a graceful act in
electing to tho highest offico in their
gift Mr. Louis N. Megurgee, who as
president of the Pen and Pencil clnb is
largely responsible for their entertainment in the Quaker City. Mr. Megar-
gee, who succeeds Clark Howell of Atlanta as president of tho league, is one
of tho most widely known und popular
newspnper men in the conutry. He is
08 years old and has been engnged in
newspnper work ever si nee he was graduated from the Philadelphia high school
about 20 years ugo.
After an apprenticeship as a reporter on
Tho Times he went to the Philadelphia
Press in 1881 as eity editor, aud in that
position was distinguished for enterprise
aud thoroughness. In 1884 ho wont to
Tlie News, then midcr tho management
of Major Moses P. Handy, as managing
Ctwdhml IX llumle.
Speculation on hlfl aneecflsor by the
pope iiniiM'ir is humorous nud interesting. Leo XIII smilingly told somo cardinals recently that Cardinal Dl Reude,
urchhishop of BoUOVOIltO, would ho tho
next wearer of llm linrn. Oil boing askod why ho thought so, .Joachim Peool
looked round slyly at tho cardinals and
said: "Because lie is the youngest. The
mortality among aged members of the
sacred collego is so great. " Cardinal Di
Rondo is OUO of the pope's favorites. Ho
speaks English perl'ectly and was for
some timo attached to (V church in the
MoryloboUQ road, London, and a professor at tlio Westminster diocesan seminary of st, Edmund's, Wuro. Ho wus
afterward nuncio in Paris. Ho belong!
to tho Odesoolehi family. The moution
of his mime by Loo XIII makes him topical.—Now York Advertiser.

,i letter from n Woslmlnsli r correspondent in reference to tho Fraser
bridge ub criticised in mi article
jn our last Issue, In undertaking
In dlsouss bridge matters, I h is
jiiurnul hns u siii(do purpose ill
view, namely. In further iho construction of llio bridge, nnd it is l>e-
pauso »f this single purpose, no
dntihi, Uml our correspondent appreciates the lone of our comments.
The people of Surrey, it is eufc to
say, will accept ivith thankfulness
any bridge that the oily of Westminister may decide to be the most
advantageous to build, und so long
ns they could believe that tho city
management wus acting in good
faith, no onp on this side the river
hud any inclination to orlticise
methods, even though the matter
wns one of almost vital interest to
the district. Unfortunately, within the last few months, bridge affairs have taken sitcli shape that
it is no longer possible to credit
the good faith of certain leading
citizens of Westminster or of the
city council. The business appears
to lie in the hands of factions, who
care less for a bridge than for the
obtaining of it upon their own
lines, and while these interested
individuals are able to keep their
views before the public, the great
majority of the people seeking only
the public welfare in tho construction of a bridge on the most
approved plans, pan scarcely obtain
n hearing. In this position of affairs, SjJltBEV Timks would have
been recreant to iis constituency
of Surrey had it failed to be beard
from at this stage of the business,
and the more especially as it is
favored with the confidence of
earnest advocates of bridge construction in Westminster, who
seem to feci Hint their views ure
not otherwise voiced.
At the very start three mutters
suggest themselves us evidence of
the bad faith of those parties who
are attempting to manipulate the
the bridge enterprise. First is the
senseless dallying with the Rand
Scheme, when the projectors of it
have utterly failed in all their
undertakings. Second, is the wilful withholding of important information in regard to the Hamilton Bridge Company'softer, Third
is thai while engineers were employed bi make outlines of the different plans for the information of
the public, only loo of such plans

reason
Langley Township.
OotTOSI'OU'lQnOQ SVRItBY TIMKS.
The following is a more detailed
statement of the valuable observations made by Messrs. Buddiclt
and Murker in the course of lectures delivered by them in the
Town Mull here, on the 11th and
12th instant, under Ihe auspioies of
Profossor Robertson of Ottawa,
wbilsl in charge of the travelling
dairy now going through this Province, The pratlcal part of butter
making wus shown by Mr. Murker
and concise addresses on I lie science
nnd art of I lie manufacture and
the managpmonl of tha milk woro
given by Sir. Ituddjpk embracing
i-reini raising by tho oontrlfugal
and gravitation systems, respectively, ripening of cream, churning,
sailing uml working butter, ami
tho "essentials lo BU200SS."
His roinarks were illustrated by
various chuils showing tho results
of experiments curried on nt tho
Central Dniry si.-uion, Ottawa,
Due of thom showing the relative
qierits of tliq creamery systems, indicated that Ibe skim milk from
the centrifugal (.renin separator
contained 0.08 per cent or butter
fat, that from the deep setting cans
(Bammed after -j:> hours setting
in Ice-water, 0.62 per cent, and
ihnl from shallow pans sotting also
22 hours, contained 0,48 per cent.
These Bgures were the average of
a whole year's results, lie said
thai where no cream separator wns
used Ihe deep setting would give
Ihe best returns, all things considered. In order tp obtain the
best results it is necessary that the
milk should be set Immediately
ufter it is milked in ns cold water
us   possible, und   skimmed   while
still sweet. Headvisedthe farmers
to huve some cows come in in the
fall SO ns to keep up the supply of
butter during the winter, when
prices nre the highest, und besides,
by mixing Ihe milk from fresh
cows with that from cows nt nn advanced period of milk-giving, would
insure greater effiolenoy in the
creaming. In illustration, Mr.
Buddick exhibited a chart showing
thnt the skim milk from eight
cows more than (ij months milking, contained 1.48 per cent of butter fat, or moro than one-third of
the fat in tlie new milk, whilst by
adding to it the in ilk of one cow-
newly calved, before setting into
ice-water, the percentage of fat in
the skim milk was reduced to 0..r,"i.
In other words, ,1.'!;fl pounds of milk
from the Scows was required to
make ono pound of butter, whilst
by the addition of one fresh cow's
milk only 2~ pounds were required,
and the butter wns considerably
improved in quality. With regard to the ripening of cream the
lecturer suid thut this wus the
purt of butter making where most
skill wns reijtiired. A grout deul
of the dairy butter grows old before
it is churned. Hint is, in the ripening processor the cream, Ripening
of cream is merely a fermentation
which takes place, nnd it is the
task of the butter-maker to see
that the fermentation is the right
one, nnd to keep it within proper
hounds. Well ripened cream hns
a pleasant acid taste, and is of nn
even thick consistency. Sixteen
to twenty hours is sufficient for tho
process, Churning should be done us
soon ns practicable. It is impossible
to lay down nny set rules as to
temperature, as this varies a good
deal according to local conditions.
Tlie temperature, however, which
will cause the butter to come in 80
to -Id minutes may successfully be
adopted. When the butter comes
into granules as large us shot, the
churning should be discontinued,
und the butler-niillt drawn off. A
quantity of odd pure water, equal
in bulk to that of tbe butter-milk,

supplied by Mrs. Harding of Lang*

■At the closo of the lecture a cordial vote of thanks to Messrs. Roddick and Marker wns moved by
Mr. Walter McKwen, seconded by
Mr. .1. At. Johnstone, and curried
by warm ncolaination, expressive
of the ability with which the

The Department of Agrloulturo
deserves cniiiinendulion for sending round Ibis Travelling Dniry to
advance Iho Interests of the
farmer?, It bus boon a praotioal
slop in the right direction, nnd
will no doubt be grealely appreciated throughout the Province, diffusing as it does milch valuable and
advanced information to those interested In the butter industry, n
product of world wide consumption,
nnd one which greatly adds to
the profits of the agriculturist,
'Langley, Sept. 21st, 1808,
Tut: Orange ptc-nioat l.unglcy
on Saturday was well attended,
nnd although the weather was
rather cobl, those present enjoyed
the outing very thoroughly. The
contingent from Surrey wus small,
und Mr. Arch. Murphy, of Clover
Vulley, hnd the honor of representing this immediate vicinity. The
feature of tlio day qf chief interest
wus the address of lion. Clark
Wallace, Comptroller of Customs,
who hns been for years a leading
member of the Orange order in

wns listened to with great interest,

To [he BUttOr oi BtlllB.Y TlMl>.
Sin,—Your article on the Fraser
bridge situation bus the right ring
to it. Vou certainly cull a spade
n spade. But what is the matter
with tbe city press. Why is it we
have to rely on a oountry newspaper for a plain statement of the
case ? Our city fathers have so
arranged matters that it is a case
of the Hand scheme or the B-ullen
scheme. The Rand scheme being
apparently dead nnd the Bullen
scheme very distasteful tn the peoplo
in general it is about ns you stnto,
a case of no bridge.
We must have a bridge within
reasonable cost, One which will
give most employment to home
labor, nnd built by a reliuble corn-
puny who can and will pay their
workmen regulury. The plans
should provide ample room for
navigation so as to avoid nny delay or interruption to the work by
the navigation authorities. There
must be no possibility of nny extras creeping in; once open the
door for extras you cannot tell
what Hie ultimate cost of the work
will be. Let our city council take
this matter up nnd decide which of
the three plans most nearly complies wilh Hie conditions, and I
think the interests and wishes of
the people will be served by award*
the contract on the plan so chosen.
Yours truly,

Washington, D. C, Sept, 20.—
The project, originating in London,
of raising one billion dollars to be
placed at. the disposal of the Pope
us a fund with which he could
negotiate with Italy for the rcrtor-
ution of the temporal power is regarded by leading Cathollo
authorities hero as visionary and
absurd. The reported circular,
issued in London, bus not been
feen in this city, nor lias the subject como to the authorities in uny
form,   lt is regarded as emanation
from either some well  intcntioned,
misguided individual, or else some
ono desirous of raising a prejudice
against the church. It is said
Hint the restoration of temporal
]iower involves sentimental considerations which neither Italy nor
the Pope would reduce to a (piestion of barter.
