Another Creamery Mooting.
On Monday evening Inst n mooting was held In the school houso
hero to discuss n proposition for
Surrey farmers to supply cream to
tho Delta Creamery. The meeting
horn wns arranged on short notice
and many people did not know of
it, though therp wns nevertheless
an attendance of some eighteen or
twenty prominent ranohers. The
Delta Creamery wns represented by
President Benson, Directors JIoKoo
and llutcliersoii nnd Manager King,
the hitter having been connected
for some years with one of the enst-
orn  dairy  farms under  I'i'ofessor
Robertson, by whom he wns recommended to tlie Delta Creamery
Brief addresses  wero   made by
tlie'gentlemen from Delta bearing
Upon the subject jn band, and Mr.
King went at length into tlie practical features of butter making and
selling and was listened to with
earnest attention, The excellence,
too, bf the creamery plant at Dolta
was referred to, Mr, King describing it as ci|tinl in every respect to
tlio best of thoso in the eastern provinces, a matter thai will no doubt
be approved by Surrey fanners
whether or not they join at tlie present time in the proposition submitted to them.
In brief the offer made to Surrey
farmers by tho Delta Creamery
Company was that the cream should
be separated at suitable stations,
transferred regularly to the Delta
establishment and there manufactured into buttor and disposed of
along with the Company's own
product. An exact record will be
kept of all the cream from outside
points and the buttor paid for at
the price actually realized, less an
equitable share of tlie cost of management.
The mutter was fully discussed,
and the general sense seemed to be
that this was the most' likely
creamery proposition ypt submitted
to the farmers of Surrey. The following were appointed a committee
to take what steps may be deemed
desirable: Messrs. Armstrong, Lyte,
Shannon, .Milton, and C. MncKcn-
zie. There will be a meeting of
the committee at Hip house
of. Messrs. Lyte & Whittaker tomorrow (Saturday) evening.

The Feasor Bridge.
At the last Westminster Council
meeting, the bridge question was
brought up for discussion, consequent upon a report from the joint
committee recommending that no
action be taken until arrangements
can be made with at lpnst one railway to use the bridge. The report
wns not sntisfactory to a majority
of thp Council. Alderman Johnston probably fairly voiced the
sentiments of his fellow aldermen
in the following terse paragraphs!
1. Delay is nut in the public
2. A bridge across the Fraser
River at New Westminster is urgently necessary.
8, The present is an opportune
time for building tlie same.
4. New Westminster has already
spent large sums in connection
with the scheme, all of which, together with the promised Provincial subsidy, may bp lost by delay.
5. We have already three excellent plans selected and approved
to choose from.
9. We are confident that further
antl material assistance could be
secured (by honest and patriotic
effort ) from certain quarters morally bound to grant such assistance.
1. We appeal to the people,
' A public meeting is called for tomorrow In take the sense of the
I people upon bridge matters, and it
i is possible Something definite may
come of it in tho way of n start, but
parties out of the city believe they
have frequently noticed that when
any bridge scheme was likely to
reach a head, a combination in
Westminster would put on pressure
to baulk it. The old "Rand
j scheme" wns very convenient to
I swing in for purposes of delay, and
! even now that it has been ostensibly abandoned ns hopeless, the
I same old "scheme" is brought in to
; do service on the same old lines,
namely, to interfere with and delay
\ the real work of building the bridge
the moment there is any prospect
;of it being gone on with. Although
I Mr. Rand's scheme of bridge and
i railway would probably suit the
people to lie served on tliis side tbe
river better than any other proposition yot submitted, Btlll no one
here believes tlie "scheme" is now
being used for any oilier purpose
than a stand-off, and they laugh, at
the following item which appeared
in Wednesday's Columbian:
"Mr. ('. D. Hand, president of the
lliirrnrd inlel & Fraser Valley
Railway, was in tlio city to-day,
on very important business, it is
mnro than rumored, in connection j

The Latest from Ottawa.
Ottawa, July 11—When the
House met again to-day, the gnl-
lcries were crowded, Sir Adolphe
Caron was the first striking Minister to appear in his seat. Soon
after Ouimet appeared. The memorial of the Province of Manitoba
in the school case wns presented by
message of His Excellency to the
Mr. Foster, in reply to Mr. Laurier, said that the French Canadians were alarmed that the nc-
gotintions that would be opened up
with Manitoba WO'lld defer remedial legislation. So anxious were
the French members that they
should obtain remedial legislation
this session, that they stood aloof
from nny other proprosition, Mr.
Angers could not see nny other
course to follow in the matter and
hnd not only resigned, but bis re-
signntion wns accepted, nnd he wns
no longer a member of the Cabinet.
Messrs. Ouimet and Caron, while
anxious to see a settlement of the
matter this session, agreed to a
postponement  to another session,
on obtaining satisfactory assurances that the remedial legislation
would be undertaken and pressed
through nt another session. These
insurances had been given. The
whole trouble between the two
French Ministers nnd their colleagues was a misunderstanding, Remedial legislation had been assured
the two  Ministers, and tbey were
remaining in the Government.
Sir Adolphe Caron snid thnt,
having got this satisfactory assurance, he thought it would be jeopardizing the case of the minority
tl he did not remain and assist the'

It Is not generally known tbut the hottest, most arid desert In the world Is in
the United States, but such iH thu fact,
Thu Oocapah desert' is small, hut It is the
most dangerous of any In the kuown
world. Standing upon the mountain
range to the east, looking across thu 00
miles nf plain to another mountain range
on the west, with glimpses of two small
lakes midway between, it does not appear
tbat lt requires any extraordinary fiat of
danger or endurance to cross the plain.
Ami this has caused tbe loss nf many lives.
The sand of that desert is so hot that In a
few miles tho shoes will lie literally burned
oft the traveler's foot, beasts will bu overcome before half the distance is eitcom*
panned, am) the adventurous traveler dies
la agony, literally consumed with heat
from without and thirst within. Many
have been known to attempt' the Journey,
sad hut. few have been known to return.
These have gone no farther than Ihe first
lake, and finding it salt water have heaien
u retreat. The nearest bike bus been
reached often enough to know t hut it ebbs
und flows with the gulf nf California, und
Ihe water is the same, hence It must be a
part of that body, although separated
from it by (in or tn miles of solid earih
and a high range or mountains. This
range was probably al one (hue an Island
and theCoaupub desert the bottom of the
hsii. I once started across thu barren
waste to Investigate, hut l had hot gone
in miles beforo becoming completely ex
huustcd.    The solus of my feet were I
tered with  heat, my  brain grew i
could get' uodlr.and the breath
stnp in my throat.    I turned buck just In

used by the I'Vderal troopsdurilig the war

butcher's knife, is r.' inches; long, with

lighter than the sword bayonet, The hitter Is being dispensed with by most of the

Asa Beeson served in the capacity of

of law was extremely limited, nnd ho
wouldn't have known a mundniniisfroni
nn alibi, hut he possessed a lino sense
of justice, and bis decisions, though
sometimes original, were usually iu favor of tbe right and for the promotion
of peace and harmony.
On one occasion he bad on trial before bim a ease entitled Hunter versus
Itiggius, iu which the cause of dispute
wus a line fence separating the farms
of tbe contestants. Tbe plutntilT was a

sure he had discovered something beneath Ihe surface of their hearts which
tbey were ciilefully COIlCOflHUg liom the
public uud each other. When Ihe case
was called, there was an army nt witnesses and n world of evidence, and all
so conflicting Unit It would have required a Solomon to have rendered u
just decision. Squire Heesoti listened,
scratched bis bead and looked complete

"This is a case,'* he said, when the

The squire paused a moment, then
resumed: "Now. as 1 understand this

alio considers rescue from premature
death.    Her unrrative is as follows:
"Eur ten years prior to IH1M, I wasn

About this time a friend of mine,
Mrs. Syinnntha Smith, of Qlidden,
Iowa, told me about the case uf Mrs.
Thurston, of Oxford Junction, Iowa.
This lady said she hud been afflicted
mueh tin; same as I had. Sho had

Peoplo Wha Vanish,
Among tbo periodic waves whioh
strike our groat centers there is nono ro
strange as thnt of mysterious disappearances. Such a wave selects ita victims
from all classes, ages. Men, women and
children am impartially its prey. Sometimes thu absentees return iu a dazed
condition unable to tell of thoir whereabouts. Others present a mystery darker still, for tbey nover return and are
no moro hoard of. Foul play, a orazed
fever for wandering, premeditated
flight, aro called to account as causes,
bnt somo of these mysteries have neither
apparent cause nor end. It is a queer
aud weird feature of our modern life
that these mysterious disappearances can
so easily tako place and thoir subjects
be neither traced nor recovered iu spite
of our crowded civilization. But perhaps it is because of it.—Baltimore

Thoy aro pursued by tho good young

Fragments of tbu little animal are found
scattered all along tbo road by tbo good
young man, who by tbu assorted bits of

A remarkable haul of eels was made
tho other day by Cosmos Fckenrode, who
WAS fishing along the Tulpehocken.
There is a variety of oels known as the
tandem eel, which is very seldom found
in this stall.', though common in tbe west.
A peculiarity of this variety is that they
travel, when migrating, single file, about
six inches apart, and maintain that distance exactly during tho time of their
progress. If one of the lot shoots ahead
loo rapidly, tbe ouo following immediately grasps bim by Iho tail in order to
drag him back to bis proper place iu the
line, They appear lo have a remarkable
instinct for distance, and the variation
of an inch will cause tbo rear eel to exercise bis authority to put the brakes on
the oue ahead.
While Mr. Eckcurodo was fishing be
hooked one of the travelers, a very remarkable circumstance, as tbey seldom
lute while migrating, As soon as he had
hooked it he of course gave a haul ou tho
line, which caused this particular eel to
shoot ahead. Me was immediately
grasped by Ihe one following, and as
that one likewise shot ahead the next one
did the same, so thai, when Mr. F.ckeu-
rode began to haul out he found a solid
rope of eels. Dropping bis rod and line,
he grasped the living rope and began to
haul iu band over baud. Ho kept hauling in and'piling up tbo eels until ho
was utterly exhausted, when hu was
obliged to stop and out tbo connection,
lie quickly ran for assistance, aud a
number of tho neighbors came to help
bim take care of Ids rare calcb. When
Ihey wero all gathered up and loaded on
wagons, it was found that he had H75
pounds. About fid worth wero sent to
tho Heading market, and the rest were
distributed among his neighbors.
Tbe news of bis remarkable catch has
spread all over the upper part of the
county, and a great many fishermen have
been endeavoring to repeat It, but without success, since, according to naturalists, an occurrence of this sort is one of
the rarest in flailing,—Heading Herald.
A Time When Feminine Stylet Were Pre-
fernd by Meu.
In point of fact, the early mediaeval .
muu and woman looked as much alike us
tbu flu du sieclo wheelman and his hi-
cycle girl, Take the king and queen in
a pack of cards. They aro early medico- I
vol. Notice the surprising similarity
iu their costumes—tbo samo wide robes
and angular folds, tbo same stained
glass stiffness. Novices at cards may ho
excused for being at a loss sometimes,
at least until they have learned to look
for tbe king's beard.
With tho wane of the age of chivalry
thero came n singular exaggeration in
tbo toilet of men. Tbey deliberately !
imitated tbo women. Thoy allowed
their hair to grow long, cultivated curls
by tho hot irons and ointments nnd actually woro chapters, liko diadems, to
curb their flowing looks. In the texture
and color of their garments tbey showed
tho same effeminacy, for they began to
affect brilliant reds and blues aud to
wear costly trimmings and jewelry.
This, too, was the age of the sighing,
walling lover, fainting at his mistress'
frown. Every knight who could write
OT sing posed as a minstrel and re-
hearsed his love affairs. At every gath- ;
cring of tbu nobility there was a childish prattlo of love, cloying and monotonous for very sweetness. Tho sexes
seemed to have changed places. It was
tho lover who was a shy wallflower,
who blushed and went about woeful
aud woe worn from his secret passion.
As wo look over the poems of the minnesingers, thoso bards of love, the lady
seems always unapproachable, listening
with contemptuous mien to tho gentleman's gentle advances. Whilo he succumbs to nervous exhaustion she goes

Among the well known diseases whom*

; during the past 15 years are anions  the
strangest of the "true fairy tales" of modern science, For example, the micrococcus
1 of croupous pneumonia, as discovered by
. Dr. Sternberg, lurks in the mouth aud Is

opportunity when a condition of lowered

! appears that the bacillus of tetanus, or

soil and may rest on the surface of the
, human body or be taken lute the stomach
: without producing injury. Even on the

disease tetanus.   Thus Is explained tbe
I fact, always before a mystery, that, even
j slight ami seemingly insignificant puue-
1 tare wounds are more likely lo produce
i this disease than  are open  lesions that,
\ otherwise are far mure serious.
It is nu Interest lug and highly suggestive fact, as showing the power of resistance of the human  body under normal
conditions! that a bacterium capable of
i producing such a disease as this -may be
i so abundant all about us and yet so infra-
I quoutly find opportunity for malignant ao

I the conditions there favorable to their de-

i few persons who have not nt one time or

! sons develop tbe disease.   The others are

whose tissues at one time resist the microbe may at another time succumb to It.
The exact nature of tbe "inherent vitality" which we nre accustomed to speak of
as giving the tissues power to resist tbe

Crisis at Ottawa on iho School Question
The school quoslloii is milking
Iroublo nl Ottawa. Thu Govern-
nit'tit luis determined to delay re-
mt'iliiil legislation, and tho Frtfuch
BUpporton vigorously objeot, Wo
glvo bolow Iho latest developments
available, and oiler no common!
ibis week jxcppt to say that we believe tbo action of I lie Government
will be approved by iho great majority of the Canadian people :
When tlm House assembled on
Monday afternoon, the Hun. G, K.
Foster niiiclo (ho following nn-
houncement; " 4 desire to state
that the Government bus bud under consideration the reply of the
Manitoba Legislature to the remedial order of March 21, 1895. and
after careful deliberation |iave arrived nt the following conclusion :
Though there may he differences of
Opinion us to tne exaot meaning of
the reply in question, iho Government believes it mny be interpreted
as holding out some hope of an
amicable settlement of tlie Manitoba school question on the basis of
possible action by the Manitoba
Government nnd Legislature, and
tbe Dominion Government is most
unwilling to take any action which
can he interpreted as forestalling
pr precluding a desirable consummation, Tlio Government has
also considered the difficulties to
lie met with in preparing and per-
teoting legislation on so Important
and intricate a question during the
last hours of the session. The Government has, therefore, decided not
to ask Parliament to deal with
Remedial legislation during the present session. A communication
«ill be sent immediately to the
Manitoba Government on tbe subject, with n view of ascertaining
whether that Government is disposed lo make a settlement of tlie
question whioh will be reasonably
Satisfactory to th? minority in that
Province without making it necessary to call into requisition the
powers of the Dominion Parliament, A session of the present
Parliament will be called to meet
not later than the first Thursday
jn January next. If by that time
the Manitoba Government fail to
make a satisfactory arrangement
to remedy the grievances of the
minority, the Dominion Government will be prepared at tbe next
session of Parliament to be called
as above stated, to introduce and
press to a conclusion such legislation as will afford an adequate
measure of relief to said minority,
based upon the lines of the judgment of the Privy Council and remedial order of March 21,1805."
Mr. LnRiviere immediately rose
and said : "I regret to state that
ihe altitude of the Government is
not acceptable to the minority."
Tlie Speaker promptly called him
to order. s
Tlie Cabinet bad been in session
tintil three o'clock when, by a majority vote, the statement read to
the House was carried. The three
Quebec members, Ouimet, Caron
nnd Angers, wrote out their resignations in one document and handed it to Premier Bowell,
Later lulvices state that the
French Ministers hnd certainly
tendered llteir resignations, but
considered il probable that inducements would l«c held out lo them
that would cause them to return,
otherwise I here wus a prospect of
the Government being defeated iu
the House.
Tlie Ontario mcmbers.it is saitl,
tiro also dissatisfied claiming that
the Government wns going too fur
in making a declaration to the
House thai tliey are determined to
go on with remedial legislation
should Mniiilohn not do so. The
Governor-General, who is in Quebec, has been telegraphed for.
Montreal, July 8.— Tbe news
that legislation in the Manitoba
school matter will not be presented
Just now has, so fur as the Inhabitants of Ibis Province arc concerned, fallen upon very Indifferent
ears. The feeling regarding the
agitation has, if the truth is told,
never found an echo in the hearts
of French Canadian people as did
tbe Kiel rebellion or other questions
where the interests of race were se-
ficusly involved.    The reason is
tluil Ihey do not understand the
Toronto, July 8.—The feeling in
Ontario on tbo announcement that
no remedial legislation will lie in-
troduccd this session Is a very mixed one. It goes without saying
that tho Catholics who desired Ihe
I'l'-eshilili.liinent of soparate schools
for their Mauitoba'co-rollgionlsts,
are by no moans pleased. The
pronounced Government supporter
is comparatively content,  us  he
sees in the policy nf delay a hope
that something may turn up in
tho meantime that will offer a ivnv
mil of ilia difficulty,
Ottawa, July 0, The excitement
over the political crisis here to-day
was groully abated over Ihe vole in
tho House on Iho motion of lion.
\V, Laurier when il niel al So'olook
lo il iTeci thai il adjourn until
the repnrlod vabanolos in Iho
Cabinet woro filled.. To Ibis lion.
(I. IS, Fostor replied thai Mr. Laurier wus only speaking from vugtio
newspaper rumors and hnd nothing
authentic to huso his statements on,
lion. Mr. Mills supported Mr. Poster, with the result (hut the motion
wns defeated by !!7 majority, All
the Conservatives except Mr. Le-
pine voted wilh the Government.
To-night Hon. Mr. Ouimet bus
niiitlo an ultimatum tp Premier
Howell to thp effect tliat if the
statement injide in tlie Ilmiso by
himself nnd Mr. Foster is changed
sous to strike out nil reference to
tlie Manitoba Government and if
Parliament lie summoned to deal
with tho school question iii November or October Instead of January,
then tlie Ministers will return to
their duties. It remains to be seen
if the Government will accept this.
If (bey don't then the strike will
go on and the position of the Government will be awkward. Lord
Aberdeen is trying to fix up tlie
matter io-day with Premier Howell.
Toronto, July 9.—The "Mall nnd
Empire" says i "The logic of tbe
situation polntB to tbe withholding
of Federal interference. If through
refusing to leap into a contest with
Manitoba the admistration should
lose strength in some quarters or
suffer defeat in Parliament; if indeed the Liberals should seize the
occasion to demonstrate against tbe
Western Province in co-operation
with the more eager Quebec Conservatives, there is one may be
sure a public opinion in Canada,
whicli wedded us it is to justice
ami fair piny, will muke itself both
beard und felt. Everybody will
agree that the Government, confident as it is, with the serious responsibility on the premises, is
right in standing between the Province nnd Parliamentary action
und in giving Manitoba a chance."
Ottawa, July 10.—The prospects
of any settlement between the
French members and tho Government, are, to-day, us fur off as ever.
Ouimet sent his final offer to Howell lust night asking u further
pledge for remedial legislation before an election, or that the bill be
introduced this session. This
morning there was a caucus of the
French Conservatives, and messengers were sent to Ouimet to tell
him they would not wait any
longer than tbe tini/3 of tlie meeting of )he House. A reply was received from Ouimet that the Government   will  not  yield or muke
nny change, although Howell would
have done so. There is much excitement over this, nnd it now looks
ns if a deadlock would set in. That
will not lie known until tbe House

The Lumber Trade,
News Advertiser; As tbe result
of the conference of H. C. mill-
owners, held in tliis City on Wednesday last, the price of lumber
was advanced yesterday by every
mill in tlie Province. During tbe
past three years lumber hns been
[soiling nt it very small amount
above cost. The advance ranges
I from %i to a):! per thousand feet,
| the former figure being the advance
"ii rough lumber. The Sound
lumbermen have also advanced
I prices. The lumber trade is now
I looking brighter than it bus done
: for years.
:    Seattle Post-Intelligeucr: The
I mill  men und  lumber dealers on
i Puget Sound, after mature deliberation, concluded to follow in tbe
wake of their brothorn in the oust,
und advance tho prices lo living
rates. Tliis could only he dono
successfully by concerted action on
the purl of ilmso Interested, und it
could only he done when the conditions were favorable. The logging camps that were compelled to
suspend operations during the dull
years succeeding the panic resulted
in making logs scarce, und the in-
I'leuscil foreign demand for lumber
bus been the menus of exhausting
ihe old stock, leaving the market
comparatively bare. With the old
logs out of tlie way, an increasing
demand and a livelier market
ahead, tbe prospects for this leading Industry of the Pacific Northwest nre exceedingly encouraging.
Now logging camps will be started
up, while the old ones will be re-
. lived ; idle mills will resume oper
ations under more favorable conditions ; the capacity of the old
mills will be increased and iloublo
time and double forces resorted to.
Idle men will be given employment ; idle vessels will obtainehur-
ter; the mosquito Hoot of tho Sound
will bu actively engaged, and business generally will fool the reviving effect, with a limitless market
und good prices for lumber, coupled
willi other induBlrJos, Iho cry of
dull 'times should bo speotjlly
banished from Ihls favored portion
of Ihe world.
Mr. Fostor, tho Dominion Minis-
ler of Financo, bus introduced n
resolution iu I'lirliiunonl authorising the Govornmonl lo appropriate
n sum nol oxcoodlng 130,000 nniui-
ully for n period of live years ns u
bonus on load ores smoltcd in
Canada. The bonus is not to exceed 60 cenis u ton, Although it
is applicable to the whole of Canada, the bonus is really granted wilh
u   view   to   the   encourgeinent [if
s Iting   iu   British    Columbia,
With tlio except inn of Ihe orOS
treated al the small smelter ut
Pilot liny, ull the ores mined in
British   Columblu   nre now sent tp
American smellers for treatment,
and all the advantages to be derived from the industry uro consequently Inst to thin Province Willi
n sinn'll bonus it Is believed thai
there will be Inducements enough
to lend to the establishment ol
smelters nml refineries, so thai Ihe
money expended in the production
of pig lend may all bo kept at
homo. A representative of the
lianas City Smelling und Refinery
Company bus been for some time
in Canada, and it i ■ understood
(hat if tho appropriation for the
bonus is approved by Parliament,
that Company will erect nnd operate u smeller at some point in West
Kootenay. It is also said that
Itovclstoke is likely to bo the.
place selected for the establishment
of the smelter.
The Columbian, says that eon?
trary to expeotations,there are going
to be more fishermen working on
Ihe Fraser River this yenr tlpm
lust, when the number largely exceeded any previous year. To date,
about 600 cannery licenses huve
been issued and in tlie neighborhood of $1,126 fishermen's licenses,
mnking a total of over 1,700, and
the sockeye season has not fairly
commenced. During the last three
or four days, the applications for
licenses have been pouring into
tlie inspector's office more rapidly
than they could be made out, un()
it was found necessary in mnny
enses to give their number nnd
send tlie license afterwards, otherwise there would huve been u spr-
lous delay to mnny of the fishermen. In northern waters, also,
more fishermen are nt work than
ever before. The total number of
licenses for Frnser und northern
const fisheries will probably exceed
2,500. This being an off year on
tlie Fraser, it was not expected
that Uie number of men enguged in
the fishing would be ns large
us last year, but the prospect of obtaining 2o cents per fish has induced scores of men to try their
luck.     _ _
A startling story conies from
Chilliwack, the truth of which there
appears to lie no reasonable doubt
of. The story goes that A. W.
Prestly, a merchant of that village,
employed two young men who
boarded with him, to bum his premises down, in order tn got the insurance money, which wus considerable. After mnking the nr-
rangements, Presley, it is snid, be-
cunie suspicious of one of the young
men and asked to drug him nnd
bum him with tlie building. This
alarmed the young man, nnd he
gave tlie whole thing uwny at the
lusl moment. A warrant wus Issued the next morning (Friday
Inst) for Presley's arrest, but he
wns not to be found, nnd n wire
wus sent to Mission to stop him
there. He did not get off at Mission however, but came right
through to Westminster, nnd since
reaching there, has not been seen.
The police, it is understood, are on
his truck. Tlie affuir bus crented
u great sensation ut Chilliwack.
Lee King, u Chinaman who wus
arrested at Steveston, on Wednesday of Inst week, charged with selling Intoxicants without a license,
was brought before Mr. T. C. Atkinson, S. M.,at Steveston, on Saturday afternoon, and pleaded guilty. He wus fined*)150 nnd costs, or
six months' imprisonment. The
sale of intoxicants without a license
is on tlie Increase at Steveston, but
a few tines of this dimension, will
muke tbe business rather too risky
to meddle with.

Drought in Ontario.
Toronto, July 8, -Alarming reports, of the severity of Iho drought
nnd loss occasioned thereby ciinie
in from all purls of Ontario.
('recks, wells und water holes have
dried up, and in many cases
Uie farmers have to go miles for
water. Thoro is no feed for the

on, A Chesley farmer wont In-
sunc through his losses und ruin
stares thousands in tho faco. Merchants in various towns refuse to
buy goods from commercial travel-
lot's until ruin conies. To add lo
tho furiuers misery, grasshoppers
huve appeared and threaten the
remains of those crops which the
drought hns spared.
Kingston, July 8.- Owing to the
continued drought und Its serious of-
feot on the crops, prayers were recited iu St. Mary's Cathodral for ruin.
