Stand   Taken   hy  Individual  Miners���Endorsed by Dr.  ;H. E.Young,' M.L. A.  Two weeks ago a piolest was  entered by forty-nii.e individual  miners against the granting of  leases on new creeks. Volcanic  Creek offered the first instance since  the election last fall in which a test  could be made of the pledges-given  by^the Conservative government le  the blanketing of laige areas of un-  pros'pected ground. Other cases  are *under considerationu by the  government, and Dr. Young received a letter about two weeks ago  from tho Premier -in which -the  pledges given by him' on his; visit  to the camp last fall, in regard to  the protection of the interests ofthe  individual miner, were reiterated.  The matter is in no way a p'ersonal  one, but the government recognizes  that this abuse of the act which has  been so detrimental to the interests  of the camp should cease.    It is uot  * j. ��-  thcintenttoii of the government to  hinder'legitimate development in  an}' way, nor is there any'objectiou  ou Ihc'part of the individual miners  to -operators - who are complyitig  with the law. The output, during  the past year, shows that there are  large areas in this country that can  be profitably worked by the individual. That these areas should be  held .without working or complying  with the law in any way is a condition that unfortunately has existed  too long aud it is the iutention of  the government..to assist in the development of the camp by insisting  on a strict compliance to the placer  act and, furthermore^to reserve the  right of granting leases on unwork-  ed ground. Mr. Fraser, our gold  commisaioner, expressed - himself  very lieely to the miners as to his  sentiments on the question. It is  pleasing to note that we have an  official, in the gold commissioner,  who so thoroughly understands the  conditions and who has and is now  showing that his first motive is in  the interest of the true development  of our great mineral country.  Our Editor paid a visit to Dr.  Mitchell's camp at Scotia Bay, this  week, and vvas surprised and  pleased to see the progress made in  so short a time. A well-timbered  shaft is well under way, being already 20 feet deep. ''The surface  gravel, of yellow color, ceased at  5 feet depth, when a hard, bluish  cement, or rather conglomerate of  cement and gravel was encountered.  This conglomerate is still holding  out at the 20 foot level and will  piobably prove to be the stiata  overlying the heavier gravel deposit  on bediock. Just how deep it is to  bed lock is not known. It is to  such men as Dr. Mitchell and his  associates that every great mining  camp owes its existence.

His Brother's i
"Jim, old chap, I want you to do
1110 a favor. I know you'd do any-
, tiling for your 'ne'er-do-weel' young
brother, but what I am asking you
now is something altogether out ol
(.he ordinary. Since Vale—ah, cruel
Fate!—ordains that my next three
years must he spent out of the old
country, 1 want you to help mo
over tlio most dilliciilt part of leaving that' aforesaid country. Will
you, .Tim?" And the speaker laid a
caressing hand on his companion'.s
Such a contrast between two brothers was surely never seen. One—
•the speaker—was tall and broad-
shouldered, with a laughing, handsome face surmounted by a refractory
crop of sunny curls; tho other equally
tall, though the apparent breadth of
his shoulders was marred by their
slight stoop; and tho dark, strong
face bore the outward and visible
( signs of hard thinking and deep reserve, which tho man's character in
no  way belied. .
Reserved oven to the verge of - the
seclusion which marks a hermit's life,-
Jim Hartford, Professor of Classics,
seemed to shrink with a natural aversion from tho society of his fellow
men and women—with one exception,
that -is, and only one, the young -lad
now before him. But for him he
would gladly have walked right up
to the mouths of a battery of hostile
guns, would have laid down his lifo.
with a smile, and deemed himself
lucky to have had the opportunity.
' ■ From the time when his dying, mother, had committed her youngest-born
- to his elder brother's charge he h'ad
exercised a constant, care over him.
And now. with ,a smile which lit up
his face and made it almost'beautiful, the professor answered as his
brother know he would:—
"A favor. Jack! Aye,'a hundred,
and that before they're asked. What
is it this time—more scrapes? Only
don't say you've*been getting into
debt again. "Remember that last
time,  and     don't,   ,-don't    go to the
- usurers!" -    -
"Once bitten—you know ."the rest!
You don't catch me jumping willingly into the shark's mouth after once
feeling his teeth, big brother mine!
No, this is something far more serious; it is, in fact, a matter of the
-heart!" And here Jack paused to
have a mighty sigh.
"In what way can I be of assistance to you?"
"Well, it's this way, old man. When
I start to-morrow there's a girl coming to see mc off at the station, and
I'm afraid she'll be awfully cut up.
3? Oh, of course I shall lie too; but
then it's the man's part to bear up—
the woman's to grieve. Here's the
task I've set you, Jim. I want you
to do all that you can—all that lies
in your power—to lesson the pain of
tho parting for her. Tell her that
three years will pass like a lightning
flash; that hearts can beat as true
across six thousand miles of sna as
ever they did in England'; tell her—
oh, you know what to tell her! Cheer
her up, and don't make it any harder
for me than you can help." '
"But how can I help you, Jack",
when.Tin goin;j to Southampton with
you? I promised to see you aboard
the steamer and watch' you off on
your voyage; so how can I comfort
the girl? Imagine mo comforting any
girl!" And Hartford senior's voice
took on a note of despair.
"That's just whore your goodness
will come in. -I want you to seo me
off at tho station and then devote
yourself to the girl. I'll manage all
right at Southampton—never fear
for nic—but you'll do mc this last,
favor, won't you?"
"Did I over refuse you anything
you asked me? But one thing I
must know now—who is tlie girl?"
"Oh, yes; you'd bettor know that,
J suppose. Tt's little Molly Charter-
is; you know hor, recluse though you
arc—the littlo one with lips like—er—
ripo toiiinloes, and eyes trio color of
—of the di'cp blue sea!" ho concluded,
"Why?" as-T'ed the brother. "T.lttlo
Mian Ohnrt'irls, the vicar's d.aughter?
Do you  mean to tell  mo that   you've
fallen  in love with hor?    Why, T "
and     hero  he     stopped  suddenly  and
gazed   into     tho   fire   with   thoughtful
"'Do you love her, Jack—really?"
he (|ui'i-icd, after a few moments had
-passed in silence—and deep thought
on  tho part of one at least.
"Love her? Why, man, T love that
girl more than nny I've over loved
yet, and I've hud a good deal of ex-
perifnee in that lino! Love hor? Yos,
I should rather think so! .Jim, if
that girl were to a-sk mc to oat stones
for hor special edification I'd 'do it,
and smile as I eat them until she
was out'of sight, at any rate. I'm
sure it's final this time, I fool queer
all over when I think of lier!"
Then for a while silence came over
the pair, for the professor's mind was
conjuring up a vision of the newly-
donc summer.
A quaint old garden  thronged with
' mc.tfy,   laughing   guests:   white     gossamer gowns  flitting  hither   and   ihi-
a golden-haired child with eyes as blue
as Heaven itself—a child, and yet a
Molly Chartc-is! -rJhe only woman
who had ever brought a flutter t(\ his
steady, dispassionate pulse. She had
listened to him with'interest—so he
thought; her answers, her emeries, all
showed that sho entered into tho .spirit of his 'discourse, and for once • ho
had thawed—let himself go, as «his
brother expressed it—until he had
recollected that she was a merry girl
and- ho a prosy old "fogey." Then
his mantle of reserve descended again
and he had led her back to the crowded lawns, and nothing remained but
the remembrance of the expression of
pain in her eyes at being thus summarily dismissed.
And Jack won her love. - Ah, well,
it was only just; their temperaments
were alike, both sunny and cheerful,
and he—he was no mate  for "Molly.
With a start ho aroused himself and
looked fondly at Jack.
"Be good to her,' lad, for she's a
pearl of price. AndvJ'll-do all I can
to lessen her pain when you aro gone.
Poor little' woman, it will be hard
ior her.     Po you think she cares?"
"I wish I know for certain. Pcr-
h"a.ps tlie actual fact of parting will
bring hor to know her own mind-
but—you'll help hor, Jim, for my
"Yes, you can rely on mo; and now,
good-night. No, I'm not going ,- to
bed yet awhile; I have rather a knotty point to settle.    Good-night."
A7'ttlo nervous, .constrained conversation; a .bustling, officious porter;
a hiss of escaping steam; and tho
time for parting had ,comc. Just - a
long, firm clasp of the hand; and then'
the professor discretely turned his
back and became 'intent on-a lurid
The guard waved his flag,   the   engine shrieked  and  panted,   a "carriage
door slammed, and Jack was off! Thu
last view of his brother that the professor got  was  a gesticulating   figure
leaning  ., dangerously    out  of a  -window and"  waving •*. hat, bft-rcpe,ated
—good-byes"    growing    fainter      and
fainter,   and   then   the   train   vanished
round  a  curve,   and' tho  two  spectators were left alone. '
Few words were spoken  as the pair
climbed     the  hill  towards  the  town.
Once the girl  shivered  and   drew  her"
furs more closely around her, but the
professor  was unable  to "toll whether
it  was-the    cold  of  her-deep feeling
that prompted tho movement.    From
the  occasional glances which he cast
at (her    half-averted  face  he gathered
that she  was bearing, up   remarkably
well under the  shock  of  parting,  but
he  had     heard  that  these  restrained
natures often needed but tlie slightest
reference  to  the  present   trouble  ' to
form the prelude to a bitter burst 'of
- Above all things he dreaded a
scene, and the mental picture that
ho drew of Molly in tears led him to
avoid all mention of the parting.
^They reached the gates of the vicar-
,ige, and Molly turned to say "good-
by<\" As he held her little hand for
a blissful moment tho professor, recollecting how badly he was fulfilling his
trust, ventured on a few words of
"Cheer up, Miss Charteris. Afler,
all, three years is but a brief span
as compared with tho many years of
a lifetime. And Jack, in spite of
his gaiety, has a warm, true heart. I
know—who better?—the fund of lovo
which he hid'es under a careless exterior."
'Ah, yes, I know, Mr. Hartford—I
feel sure that ho will be loyal." Molly
was speaking now with a 'bravo effort to maintain her calm, the elder
brother thought.
"And you—you will not grieve? I
know ho loves you with all the
strength of his heart, for he has often
told me that ho had only one hero,
and that one.his brother."
She was able, even in the mid'st of
her own grief, to find words to comfort him. "What a sweet, true spirit tho child possesses," thought he;
"she sinks herself and turns to condole with me! Oh, Molly,' Molly, if
only he had not loved you!"
But .aloud he said: "You will permit mo to call and toll you of Jack's
doings, Miss Charteris? "We can sit
and shed our tears together and call
back to remembrance the days when
ho was with us," ho continued, with
a feeble attempt'at mirth.
"Oh, 1 wish you would. Come as
often as you wish, for there will always bo a warm welcome awaiting
"A welcome for Jack's brother, but
not for .1 tunes Hartford!"  ruminated
should utter words that might turn
the girl's friendly aflection into loathing.
Sometimes, when ho saw her cast a
wistful glance in his direction, Hartford would think that she was, longing to talk of the younger one, but
at last all uncertainty' and doubt
wore brought' to a head by the' arrival of, tho expected letter.
With' - fingers that trembled with
very eagerness Jim opened tho letter and devoured its contents. After
a racy description oty the voyage Jack
went on:— ' - '
"By the way, about Molly Charter-
is. I suppose she will have forgotten me by now, and I rather hope
she has. Now, don't accuse mc of
fickleness, old chap, but the fact of
the matter is,.-J'm madly in lo\-c
with the sweetest little girl you over
saw. I mot, her on tho steamer,
helped her , through her so.a-sickness,
prop'psed,'and was accepted—all within three weeks, which, you must admit, was quick work! Her father
favors my suit, has offered me a
partnership in his 'cstuncia,' and'wo
aro to bo married in six months.,I'm
afraid I shall Have to leave the task
of breaking the news to Miss Molly
to you, for, in spite of all my check,
I haven't tho pluck lo do that. Will
you, like tlie dear, good fellow that
you are, tell hor that I was . never
worthy of her, that my one wish is
for her future happiness, that a
man's 'affections cannot be placed' to
order, and generally smooth matters
over? She is so young that she will
easily, got over tho shock, if t any
shock there be, and you will act diplomatically, I know"; and so on.
The first feeling that invaded the
professor's breast was one ol 'consternation; the second, disgust, and
the third—yos, although ho-tried To
laugh it aside with a shamefaced air
—was undoubtedly relief. Now the
field was open; * and when once tho
girl had recovered from hor pain he
could plead his own cause. And yet,
what a cad' the youngster had/proved! In spite of his earnest protestations he had fallen in love with the
ilrst pretty face he met, and shifting
alUrcsponsibility, on to the shoulders
of -his long-suffering brother, had left
him to make his excuses.
It .was too bad; and the professor's
bosom glowed with righteous indignation. On the spur of the moment ho
sat' down'to indite a scathing letter
of .rebuke to the erring youth, but'
his brotherly.lovo was too strong and
he found himself wandering oil into
mild remonstrance.
I will go and "break the,news to
Molly," he thought, "and' then, fired
by the sight* of her anguish, I shall
be able to forget everything, save that
he is a dishonorable scoundrel Then
I will write a letter .that .will .make
him writhe";"and, acting on this new-
impulse, he' took his hat and coat
and started for the vicarage.
"ITis heart was very near his boot
as, arrived at the house, ho asked the
dapper maid if Miss Charteris were
at home.    -
"In tho drawing-room,'sir," and he
was in tho slighted one's presence.
, She looked so winning, so free from
care, as she rose to greet him, that
he found himself inwardly reviling his
brother for having given him the task
of quenching the light of those glorious eyes. ,
After the first few commonplaces
had been spoken there ensued an awful' pause. Neither one seemed disposed to speak first, but Hartford,
finding the silcrico intolerable, summoned all his courage and drew tho
fateful letter from his pocket.
"I regret to be the bearer of bad
news, Miss Charteris, but that is iny
unpleasant task ' to-day. Jack—my
brother—is—is——" but tho girl,
glancing at the envelope ho held,
broke in:— '
"Not dead!—oh, sav ho is not
It would have been better had ho
died; but no, he is not dead—only dishonored. Forgive mo if I seem
harsh, but I cannot attempt to shield
him in any way. Jack is to be married in six, no five months," and
there w.ns a tone of tragic intensity in
his voice.
The girl's head was bowed, her face
half hidden by her hand, and the man
tried in vain to road her inscrutable
No sound, no motion came rrom
hor, and tho professor thought that
the depth of hor grief has stricken hor
"Forgive ino. if I have been too
abrupt," ho said, "but tlie consciousness of his infamy compelled' mo to
blurt out the truth. If I can in any
way atone for the wrong my brother
''You need not hesitate to confide in
me, Miss Molly. I know the shock
must be great, for even to me, his
brother, not his sweetheart, the news
came as a thunderclap. I would
gladly help you if you will but allow
me to, but perhaps, at a later time,
you will feel' more able to make use
of, me.    Now I will go."
"Stay just a moment, Mr. Hartford," said Molly; "you scorn to bo
laboring under a misapprehension.
Either , Jack has been deluding you
or himself, for I never cared for him
in the "way you mean. ' I always
loved him as a brother, but as a—a—
oii, no, I could never have loved
him!" " *   '
And sho raised hor eyes ana gave
James Hartford a look which sot his
heart beating madly. ' ^
'Down dropped his hat, his stick
clattered to tho floor, as ho took a
forward stride.
"Miss Charter—Molly, do you mean
to say that you never, loved Jack?
It must bo so, for the light in your
oyes is the light of a present love.
Can it be that it is lovo for auc?
Molly, Molly, darling, havo I read
you .aright? Tell me if'there is hope
—hope foi" mc, for T havo loved you
with all the strength, of my heart ever since first I mot you." His arms
were around tho slender form by now,
and he strove to raise tlio, bonded
head. Suddenly she lifted it of hor
own free will, .and J.ames Hartford,
whilom recluse, read his answer in
her deep blue eyes.
And as lie bent his- h'cnrl to tnko

lips since" the day his mother died,

,   ' WHY MEN DIE.
It has been said! that  few men die
of' old ago,  and that almost aii persons die of disappointment, personal,
mental,     or  bodily-" toil,   or  accident.
The passions kill- men sometimes even suddenly.    The common expression,
".choked  with  rage,"  has  little .exaggeration  in   it,  for  even  though   not
suddenly fatal, strong passions shorten life.    -Strong-bodied men often dio
young, weak men live longer than the
strong,     for     the   strong    use, their

ward. [Jut tlio temporary feeling of
bitterness was swallowed up in joy
at the good fortiino which had befallen .luck; and, besides, how could he
fool bitter against Molly, of all tho',
people in the world?"
One month passed, then two, and
still no word came from tho absentee. Occasionally the professor paid
a brief visit to the vicarage in fulfilment of liis promise, but whether it
was that Molly was losing her affection for Jack, or that she did not
wish to flaunt her sorrow in public,
for some reason his name was scarcely over mentioned between them. And
Hartford, try as he would to, light
against his , nature, found himself
growing more d'ocply in lovo than
ever. In vain he remonstrated with
himself, in vain lie vowed, by all the
ties oi his brotherly aflection, that
he   would     kill   his  love.       It  would

me. 1 will gladly serve you by all
moans in my power, but, oh, Miss
Molly, do not grieve too much."
The bowed head was lifted and Molly looked across with a somewhat
puzzled air.
"Has tho shock driven her mad?"
tho man asked himself, with a sudden, tightening fear at his heart. Her
first words reassured him, however,
for sho 'askod.' "But why should 1
grieve. Mr. Hartford? Jack has but!
followed tlio impulse of his nature*
and I, tor ono, wish him joy. As for
the dishonor you speak of, I fail to
sco where that comes: in. He was
not engaged to any other girl, was
he—any girl hero'iii-England?"
For a moment the professor sat
thoro nstoundecl. Word's failed him;
he was lost in" admiration of a spirit that could boar a blow so calmly.
Of course I hoy wore not engaged—he
know that; but lliis heroic calm was
beyond ,hiiu, and hi; rose as though"
to take his l"«vu.
It is not an uncommon thing in
this ago of advancement in industrial
and engineering matters for the present day engineer to assume that he
knows much more than his ancient
brother, and while this is true in
many things it frequently happens
that an invention or appliance commonly believed to belong to modern
times is found to have boon known
and used centuries ago.
Ropes made of various kinds of
fibro and leather arc of very- ancient
date. Hopes of palm have been
found in Egypt in the tombs of Beni-
ITassan (about 3000 B. C), and on
the walls of these tombs is also
shown the process of preparing hemp.
Tn a tomb at Thebes of the time of
Thothmcs HI. (about 1600 B. C.) is
a group representing the process of
twisting thongs of leather and tho
method of cutting leather into
thongs. Thcx Bible tolls us that
the spies sent by Joshua into Jericho wero lot-down in a basket, presumably  by means  of a rope.
At Nimrud, Assyria, a carved slab
showing tho sioge, of a castle was
found, on which a soldier was represented in tho act of cutting a rope
to which n bucket for drawing water from a well outside the "castle
walls  was  attached.
The wire rope is generally considered a modern invention, a product of
modern skill, and it will surprise
many to learn that its manufacture
is really a rediscovered lost art.
Although the Assyrians practised
tlie art of wire boating, no evidence
has boon found to indicate thut they
u.seh wire for making rope.
Tlio excavations at I'oinpoii have,
however, brought to light a piece of
bronze wire ro'pc nearly fifteen feet
long and about one inch in circumference. This rope is now in tho
Miisoo Borbonico at Naples, il, consists of three strands laid spirally
together, each strand being made up
of fifteen wires twis-led together, and
its construction docs not, therefore
differ greatly from that of wire ropes
inado to-day. Pompeii was buried
A. B." 7'J, l,82.*i years ago, but how
long wire ropes had then been known
it is impossible to tell, though, judging by the knowledge shown in tho
construction, it may be safely concluded that they had been known for
a'considerable time. The usbs to
which thoso ropes .were put arc not

Under 'many conditions hot water
is one of the most potent remedial
agents ', that can bo employed, and
often, when intelligently used, it accomplishes more than drugs. ,.
, But like many othor things powerful, for good, its abuse may prove injurious. t and produce results quitey
opposite to what was intended. , "
. The effect of ' warm or moderately
hot water applied to the surface of
the bo"dy is to cause the blood-vessels
and tissues of tho skin and undeilying
regions to -b'eco'mo relaxed, and to
lose for the time being their natural
tone. The blood supply' of tho region
is much increased, and the pores aro
opened: -If the'entire body has been
immersed this action produces marked
changes in tho distribution of tho
blood, and a considerable portion of
this fluid is taken -from the interior
of. the body and brought close to tho
surface. If cold air now strikes tho
body a sudden chill is very likely to
be the result.
This explains tho great ease with'
which ono takes cold after a, warn*1
bath, particularly if this has been
prolonged, .and it also "suggests the
natural remedy. This is quickly to
sponge the entire surface with cold
water before using the towel, which
should be applied briskly. In this
way the relaxation is followed by
prompt contraction, the circulation is
made active instead of sluggish, and
a delicious sense of vigor and stimulation  is,produced.
Hot water, is necessary properly to
cleanse the face and neck, and to
stimulate the pores to cast off the
fatty material which might otlicrwiso
stagnate and cause pimples or blackheads. Unless followed by a dash
of cold water, however, the relaxed
tissuos arc not stimulated to rccon-
trapt, and premature wrinkles and
fiabbincss of tho skin inevitably follow. Steaming tho face and throat, *.
although apparently beneficial at tho
time, is sure to be followed by results
disastrous to the complexion unless
counteracted in this way.
To sponge the face and throat with-
hot water immediately before going
out into the cold air is almost to
invite taking a cold, but by systematically following tho hot water
and brisk friction (not too vigorous
on the face), the tissues become l,'*iii
and tlio skin grows healthy, and ablo
to  throw     off nil impurities. Tho
tiny muscles of the blood-vessels bo-
conic d'oveloped through active uso,

My observations liave led mo to believe that one of the most common

Sufferers   from    asthma    and   bron-
just why yeast causes their bread to
rise, and when their dough' fails to
rise, how many can tell just - -'why?
The cause of success or failure is due
to the action of yeast. 'Yeast is a
plant, a cell so amall that only under the microscope 'is it visible. ' It
is estimated that the individual yeast
plant is not more than 1-2800 of an
inch in diameter. The yeast exists
in three states;'the resting state, as
when the good housewife gets it in
her yeast cake; the growing state and
tho  spore-bearing  state.
Tt is with the growing state that
the housewife has to do in making
her bread. When a little yeast is
placed in a solution which .contains
proper material for food;, it begins to
grow by- a method called budding;
that is, each individual plant puts
out .a whole lot of little plants from
itself. Thus, when it is put into the
dough, the plants-find "food in the
sugar, to which some of the starch
has been changed. The yeast feeding
on tho ' materials in tho dough ferments Ihc sugar, producing carbon
dioxid and alcohol. Tlio.carbon di-
oxid accumulated as a gas in small
bubbles, and the 'dough being sticky
and heavy, it is not possible for
these bubbles to rise up to the surface as in ordinary fermented liquids.
The gas, therefore, simply collects as
small bubbles in the midst of the
dough, causing the whole mass to
swell. The h'eat of baking drives off
the small amount of alcohol and thus
expands the bubbles of tho gas, causing the dough to rise still more. This
makes the bread light and porous. It
also makes  it  more  digestible.
Yeast plants grow readily in warm
temperatures,' and best if kept between 75 and 90 degrees. If above
90 degrees, bacteria arc apt to grow,
giving the broad undesirable flavors.
Thus dough which lias been kept too
long is apt to sour. Sour bread is
due to tlie development during fermentation of certain acids in the
dough, which come not from .the action, oT yeast, but from the growth'
of bacteria, present either in the
yeast or in the flour.
Bearing these facts in mind, tho
housewife who desires good bread
should see that' fresh yeast only is
employed, a good quality of flour
used, and that tho dough is mixed in'
clean utensils. ' After mixing, the
dough should be placed in a clean
dish at a temperature of 75 degrees/
in winter, so ,that the bread will
rise in about eight hours. Following
these simple rules, little difficulty will
be encountered.

Suet Pudding.—To one teacupful of
suet, minced down very fine, add four

apricots or nectarines, and prunes,
stowed slowly after long soaking,
pineapple and oranges, all these mako
delicious shortcakes.. And-'the trou-
blo of making is no greater than tho
making of the everlasting pic.
To make the crust for a good shortcake, take a quart of flour, three tea-
spoonfuls of baking powder, Vino of
salt, and two tablespoonfuls of sugar. Sift twice, ' then rub in four
tablespoonfuls of shortening—butter
is best—and wet with a cup and a
half of sweet -milk. Butler three pie
plates, divide tho dough in six parts,
roll to fit tho tins, put two on each
plate, after spreading tho lower with
soft butter. Bake.,in a rather . hot
oven—one that will hake the cnist in
about ten or twelve minutes. Separate tlie cakes, put the fruit between
and on top, and send to the table
hot. You want about a pint of fruit
for each "double cake. Serve with
cream. Fresh fruit should be sugared an hour before using.
Try a canned-peach shortcake some
day     when     you   require    something'
quiclc and good for an emci-gency dessert.
Breakfast Stew.—Chop fine whatever cold meats remain on hand; add a
pint or more of good soup stock;
season with salt, .pepper,,and a small
pinch of ground cloves. Thicken with
browned flour, .and pour boiling hot
over little squares of nicely toasted

It is a strange omission that an
adequate biography of Daniel O'con-
noll was not written long ago, says
a reviewer of Macdonagh's "Life of
Daniel O'Conncll," in the London
Spectator. Whatever wo may think
of the "Member for Ireland" we
cannot deny that his career deserves
a record.' In a higher degree than
any politician of his time, he displayed vthc" histrionic gift; he knew
precisely how to capture the public
attention and keep it; and he appeals
to our sense of dr.tima, apart from
the views which he held so pertinaciously and- advocated with such rancorous eloquence.
Daniel  O'Conncll was  born in  Kerry in  3 775,  the son, lo  uso his own
words,   of    a   "grazier,   or gentleman
farmer."     But  ho  has  a  characteristic pride in his birth.    "When he was
described by  a journalist  as  of  hum-
hie  origin,  "The vagabond, he   lies,"
exclaimed O'Conncll,   "when he    says
I'm  of     humble origin.     My father's
family   was    very  ancient,   and     my
mother was a lady of the first rank."
The boast reminds us of Barry Lyndon.    But however distinguished was
O'Connell's    ancestry his grandfather
and     father    were  cattle  dealers     in
comfortable circumstances,  and  Daniel himself was  adopted and ed'ueated
by his  uncle Maurice.     The boy was
educated  abroad,  as  was  the  custom
of Roman Catholics, and learnt what
Latin and Greek he could acguirc at
the  College of St.  Omer,  whence   He
was transferred to Douai; and he left
France  on the  day that  Louis   XVI.
was  executed,   full  of  hatred  for tho
Revolution and all its works. Indeed,
it is said that as the English packed
sailed  out  of   Calais  harbor he    tore
the tricolor, which' prudence had forced him  to    wear,  from his hat  and
flung it into the sea. Nor, three
years later, did ho display any sympathy with the French invasion of
The  arrival  of a    hostile  fleet     in
Bantry  Bay did  not  elate  him.     "I
love,"  lie  wrote,   "from my heart,  I
love,     liberty.     Liberty   is     in     my
bosom less  a principle than a     passion, but I    know that the victories
of the French would be attended with
bad   consequences.       The   Irish      are
not. yet sufficiently enlightened to bear
the "sun  of freedom.     Freedom would
soon dwindle into licentiousness. They
would rob, they would murder."   We
may  regret  that  O'Conncll 'did     not
always preserve this attitude of moderation; but he was a politician who
grew in violence as he grew in years,
and the conflict of his career did not
intensify tho bitterness of his thought
and speech.    He 'chose the bar for his
profession,  was called in 1798,     and
seems     to  have     succeeded  from the
very first.     He was not a' great lawyer, but  there can be no doubt that
he was a most persuasive advocate.
It would not bo difficult to    find' a
hundred     greater        Irishmen       than
O'Conncll,  but  it is  enough to  mention two—Burke and Grattan—superior  to" him' in  intelligence,  patriotism
and true  eloquence.,    Wo  would  even
assert that Parnell was,  in many respects, a greater and a more' unselfish
agitator than O'Conncll.- vO'CoimcH'n
acceptance  of  the famous  money  tribute has' never been  wholly justified.
Mr.   JMacdonugh   "is     content  to   say
that  it     was   an     "income   worthily
earned  and  generously paid."        But
evon   on     agitator • niny. live  on   less
than  £13,000   a  year,, and   it< is   difficult to respect a man who flattered
his  own     extravagance  often  at  the
expense of a famine stricken country.
Disraeli's reply to him in  3 835     was
too  bitter,   but  it had  in   it  an  element of justice.
"With regard to your taunts as to
my want of success in my election
contests," Disraeli wrote, "permit me
to - remind you that I' had nothing
to ,appeal to but the good sense of
the people. No threatening skeletons
canvassed for me. "A death's head
and crossbones was not blazoned on
my banners. My Pecuniary resources, too, were limited. - I am not one-
of those public beggars that we see
swarming- with' their obtrusive boxes in the chapels of your creed; , nor
am I in possession of a princely revenue arising from a'starving .race
of fanatical slaves." Tho words arc
hard, as we have said, but compare
them 'with O'Connell's attack and
you will have no doubt which was
the better hand at invective, which
had the better. case. The truth is,
that the vituperation upon which
O'Connell'prided himself, is his most
wearisome quality. His language was
habitually so violent that- the worst
insult which fell from his lips soon
ceased to have* either sting or meaning; and clearly the habit of abuse
was far more reprehensible in ono
sworn by - remorse never again to
fight a duel."
> But in his words Wellington is "a
stunted corporal," Alvanley "a bloated buffoon," Lyndhurst "a lying miscreant and a contumelious cur," Sir
Henry/ H'ardinge "a one-armed ruffian."' But perhaps his most elegant
effort was a description of the House
of Lords. "They are Hie soaped pigs
of society," said he, ' the real swinish multitude, as obstinate and . as
ignorant and as brutish as their prototypes." Though the words were
then greeted with "gr<:at laughter
and cheering," they appear monstrous
to-day. An orator who Uoes a mere
mass of scurrilous words is like a
tired man gasping for breath. Nevertheless,- O'Conncll had the urcful faculty of compelling others to look at
him and listen to lpm; ho also had a
rare talent for attaching his people
to his person. But after reading his
biography wo are in still greater difficulty to find an answer to the question asked by Mr. Lccky, "Whether
h'is life was a blessing or a curse
to  Ireland?"

which ho is regarded by the present

is something more than that. He is
more than a mere man of science.
He is a man of original and- independent mind. He stands out among
medical men of all nations, themselves tho flower of the world's intellect, by. reason of his fine independent personality. Ho has had
differences with his fellow scientists."
But no one has ever disputed for an

But lie has a higher courage still. '
Ho is not afraid of the bugbear of

tors. "   -
As nn example of this niny be mentioned   one   very  interesting    respect

a discovery  when  sold  as a proprietary    medicine,     has     accomplished,
they   look    coldly upon  it and     will
rarely  .admit  that     they  have   used
it with  success.     It would  bo    "unprofessional"     to'   do so !   Dr. , Lapponi is troubled by no such scruples.
For  instance,   the  numerous  remarkable  cures  which have  been     proved
by  newspaper  reports,   independently
investigated, - to   have  .been   accomplished by the medicine sold in  Canada under tho name of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People, must   be
well, known to all Canadian   doctors.
They "have been published     far.   and

arc    freely   published.      Their  statements -   have     been    investigated by
some of    tho   most important newspapers   in   this  country    and   abroad.
No'one  has ever  attempted  to  'dispute  the facts.      But   Canadian doc- '
tors have never cared to admit publicly that  they  have    availed    themselves  of    this   discovery.    ..Dr.   Lapponi, however, has availed himself of

The   "simple  anaemia   of     development" referred  to by Dr.  Lapponi is   '
of course    that  tired, languid  condition   of  young  girl's    whoso  development  to     womanhood  is  tardy,    and
whose health, at tho period of    that
development,   is   so   often   imperilled. -
His opinion of the value of Dr.  Wil-'
liams' Pink J'ills at that time is   of -
the highest scientific authority,    and
it  confirms the many published cases
in  which anaemia and  other diseases
of  llio blood as well as the   nervous
diseases     referred     to     by  Dr.   Lapponi,  have been  cured by  those pills,,
which,  .it need hardly bo mentioned,
owe  their efficacy  to  their  power   of
making new  blood,  and   thus   acting .
directly on the digestive and nervous
system.        .In ull   cases    of anaemia,
threatened  consumption,   decline,    indigestion,  kidney diseases and all affections of the nerves,  as St.   Vitus'
dance, paralysis and locomotor ataxia,  they arc commended to the confidence    of the   public,   and  now  that
they have received the emphatic   endorsement  of so  high  a professional
authority as Dr. Lapponi,  the trusted    physician   of  the     Vatican,   they
will  be accepted by tho medical and
scientific world at their true value.

"But Jessie is too  a lady to be spoilt by Miss  ^lale."  ?w saints    pity me," murmured  Ingleby aside, "for this man   is  ing walk."  Jessie was not sorry-to find herself  in a low chair in the 'pretty little  drawing-room,, which looked upon  tho lawn and the blue distance beyond, - and Miss Ingleby derived' a  half spiteful, amusement, from seeing  her brother follow; them to that feminine retreat and supply Jessie's lack  of adornment by a cluster of rosebuds, " which ��� repeated the J delicate  tinting of hor face, and were plucked  from his favorite Devoniensis tree.  "I-.a. young woman can look more  charming, than as God made her,  Jessie, it is'when wearing rosebuds."  he said on presenting them.  "Thank you, Mr. Ingleby," she replied, with a child's simple pleasure,  as she rose to arrange the flowers be-  foro a  glass.  "And this before my very eyes !"  reflected Miss Ingleby. "No wonder  ho is afraid of cavalry officers if middle-aged pgrsons go on like this."  "I really must break myself of call  ing you Jessie," he added; sitting  before hor with his arms on tho-back  of his chair, and contemplating the  effect of his roses with profound admiration, "I never can remember-  that you are grown up and engaged."  "I hope you never will," she re-  with     the     faint "blush,  any  'With his cruel dart did Cupid nail  her,  The   shaft   was     winged  by a Bond  Street tailor !'  and  your  My first  impromptu,   Sue  epitaph;  not bad,  is it?"  "And  then people talk  of women's  jealousy I"     observed   Miss  Ingleby,  dropping into  a rustic seat,  and fanning herself with her hat.      "There's  something I like  in  that  j-oung  fellow, William.     It is beautiful  to 'see  him with Ethel,      When I called the  other day,  Jessie  was reading  aloud  to  her,   and   Claude  was  sitting     by  her couch,   handing eau do  Cologne,  arranging pillows,  drawing blinds up  and  down     according to  her  whims.  It was one of Ethel's fractious days.  Tlio nurse had  been twice reduced to  tears.      Sir Arthur    confided to   me  that ho would  gladly give a year of  his lifo to give. Ethel one hour's ease  but   that  sho had   ordered  him     out  of hor room in initation, and he had  sent  Jessie as a last resource.      And  then   to   see     that  handsome,   distinguished   looking     man,   who   is     expected  to do nothing tout enjoy hiin-  tclf,     pent   up  in     a close  daVkened  room,      humoring    aii     that peevish  child s   whims     and     ill-temper,   and  waiting   on    her    like    the tendorcst  nurse."  "Most affecting," added Mr. Ingleby, "a healthy young man sacrificing  an hour's idleness to a sick sister!  And Jessie was reading aloud, was  she ? Boar mc!"  Mr. Ingleby repeated this exclamation with a preoccupied air, and  applied himself with great energy to  tho broom for a few seconds.  "I wonder what brings Medway  hero at this time of year, Sue," he  added, relapsing into idleness 'again.  "The train probably, and his own  sweet will. I can't imagine, William, what you have against that  poor young man.i  "Why nothing, he's a very good  sort  of  fellow,   but  it isn't well for  the  was -a respon-  as a school boy, having, as Captain  Medway knew, a profound conviction  that cricket was the basis of all  manly virtue, if not of every Christian grace,* and conceiving it to be  hopeless to try to improve the morals and' manners of the village  youths until he had imbued them  with a love and knowledge of that  national game.  They, walked 'up and down beneath  the trees for a good ten minutes, discussing and    arranging,  Mr.  Ingleby  happily  oblivious   of everything    but  the  grand   pastime     which   was    to  soften    the   hearts    and purify    tho  souls  of the Marwell youth  until  he  was  brought face to  face  with    unwelcome facts by his guest's  sudden  question   if    Miss   Ingleby  were    at  home.      He would have replied   that  she was engaged, had not the drawing-room    window   furnished   a full-  length portrait of his sister reclining  in a low    chair    talking   to  Jessie,  who      was:     invisible. from  without  Some mad   notion of carrying Jcf-fie  off into safe hiding crossed his   mind  and was    dismissed    before ho reluctantly  admitted  the    wolf into    the  very presence of the pet lamb,    who  appeared no  whit dismayed  or    sui-  prised at the invasion.  Miss Ingleby had been watching her"  young guest with an interest on  which  her  brother's  recent   observa-  forcibly than it had done before^ perhaps because her attention was turned to it, and the idea that -'beauty  of such? distinction  amounted  to     a  allusion to her engagement now al  ways called forth; "it is so pleasant  lo hear you say Jessie; it makes  mo feel young again, and reminds mo  of home."  Her voice quivered  a little at  last     word,  and there  sivc  tremor    in Mr.  Ingloby's    kind |misfortune in a girl so strangely sit-  face.      He laid his  hand  gently     on   uated entered her mind,  her  shoulder    as   he   passed her  on       Jessie was a little pale, which was  leaving  the   room. "Poor child,"   natural after her hot walk,  but   the  ho said, "you aro still now to trou- graceful languor of her attitude in  blc, nnd you don't even know how tho low chair she had taken betoken-  -���oung you are.

Fowls may have been carved    mo're  scientifically than those placed before  Captain   Medwuy,     hosts may    havo  been    more genial than Mr. Ingleby,  conversation    may ,have   been    mo'ro  brilliant, though not often more caustic, than'that of Miss Ingleby,*  and  young beau-tics may have been   more  bewitching than .Jessie,  who\sat fa'c-  mg     Captain    Medway with a  quiet  glow in her face like the glow in tho  heart  of, a  blush-rose,   for  the most  part   silent,   yet   occasionally   contributing    an   appropriate observation,  and smiling with gentle self-containment at the mirthful sallies between  the brother and  sister;  but no     one  present  thought  it  possible  to     im-  provo these things.     Nor in the disposition   of tho    four at table     and  afterward,  did  it appear strange   to  tho  Inglebys  that   Captain     Medway  and Miss Meade never  once  addressed each  other,   never,   that  is,   with  one exception, when Mr. Tngleby having boon  called  out  of  the  room  on  some    parish  business,   Miss Ingleby  had.  at  Captain    Mcdway's  request,  played straight through  the "Walden  stein" sonata,  declining his offer    to  turn her leaves.      Then,  Jessie being  in her old place commanding a view  of the lawn.   Captain  Medway stood  near      her,    an'd     during  the'allegro  movement spoke  to     her in     a    low  tion had put a keen edge.      Jessie's   voice  which  she    heard  through    all  remarkable    beauty   struck her more I the storm of music."     Jessie   looked  can.  "He evidently thinks littlo of my  petting powers, Jessie, commented  his sister when lie was gone. "Truly  I never met such a man as my brother. There is not a child in this  parish that he does not spoil. I am  obliged to bo a very dragon to  make up  for his deficiencies."  "Don't be a dragon to me, dear  Miss Ingleby," said Jessie, drawing  her chair to her side and taking her  hand in the caressing way that no  one, not even Miss Ingleby, could  resist,   "I like to  be spoilt."     .  "I,dare say you do, miss," was her  inward'reflection, "an artful young  puss ! Take care that you are not  really spoilt, my dear," she added,  aloud, "such a pretty faco as yours  often proves a dangerous gift; it  leads people, especially men, stupid  creatures, to value you far beyond  your merits."  "But I can't help being pretty,"  she replied, with total absence of  vanity,, "and I really don't think I  am���very���at least not prettier than  most  girls."  Miss Ingleby looked at her with a  searching directness that would have  put most people out of countenance.  "If you arc not very deep, my lady,"  she thought, "you are certainly the  most refreshing young person I ever  met." "Well,"  she replied,   seeing  that Jessie did not blench, "perhaps  you are not so very good looking  after all. But, as you say, most  young girls are pretty enough to attract     nonsensical     admiration,     cs-  server, a subdued passion in it nnd  in the half-strained set of her features, but, sharp as Miss Ingleby  was, she could not see far below  that wonderful combination of mask  and mirror, a human face.  She was a littlo    startled  by    the  up  and replied also  in  a  low tone.  No one could have heard what  they were saying, or divined from  their faces what the tenor of theii-  words might be; Jessie's eyes were  very soft and her blush-rose face  was expressive of a happy calm;  there was a subdued fire in Captain  Mcdway's eyes and a suppressed excitement in the set or his features,  even a faint quiver of the lip half  concealed by the heavy moustache,  which might mean a. quick response  to tho passionate flow of the sonata  Miss Ingleby was playing so well, or  something else.  Tho fiery music poured on, Jessie  gazed out silently into the green  heart   of   tho   linden   with   an   intense  udden   radiance   which   transfigured   consciousness of a living human soul  the young girl's faco in the midst of  their    quiet chat,     an   electric flash,  which   gave   depth    and    fire  to  her  eyes and made her form and features  instinct with spiritual life.   A deathly    pallor   succeeded    this    lightning  brilliance,   Jessie   moved,   as  if     uneasy  from   bodily     pain,   her     heart  beat in  thick pulsations so  that  she  pressed  her  hand  a moment  to    her  side,  her movement  apparently  gave  her relief, her color returned in   rich  purity,     she    spoke    with animation  nnd held herself almost proudly,   all  her beauty seemed aglow with 'some  spiritual  fire as she glanced through  the open window, past Miss   Ingleby,  whoso face was turned to her.  Surely, Miss Ingleby thought, the  number of broods Cousin Jane's hens  had hatched that spring was not a  question calculated to make a girl's  heart beat too fast and her color  como and go in that remarkable  way; and what was there in the announcement that twenty-four cows  wero now in milk at Redwoods, and  yielding so many pounds of butter  a week to make her glow liko a  young Pythoness ? Yet those were  the unexciting topics under discussion, and thero was nothing but tho  sunny   green  linden-tree  before    Jes  near her,  a   sou]     whoso  wild pulsations wero in some way mingled with  hers; she was keenly aware of a magnetic ga/o    upon her   averted     face,  keenly      sensitivo      to      the      throbbing      of      that      strong     music  so  liko    the    wild    beating of    a human  heart;  sho     turned     the     opal    ring  round  and  round   her slender    finger  as if working some occult charm   by  tho movement,  till she could  bear it  no longer,  and  with a sudden slight  turn of the head met the clouded'fire  of Medvvny's  gaze,   which  fell    before  hers.      Then  ho  spoke  again,   Jessie  replied     tranquilly,     and    he  turned  away with a slight frown; the   quick  movement    ended and    Miss Ingleby  paused a    moment    before beginning  the beautiful   long-drawn  chords     ol  tho adagio,  when  sho found  Captain  Medway by her side murmuring some  words of appreciation that she   was  too absorbed 1n her music to heed.

The storing of large quantities of  dynamite on the-first island facing  Atlin lo'wHsite.'does not appear to  lie an}' too safe ; in fact, we consider it a menace to lifeand property.  Tlie island is not much over 400  yards from tbe water front; and the  habit of shooting is very prevalent.  What then would happen if a bullet  from a long-range rifle1 should strike  tlie powder house ?. We understand  that the island has been reserved by  the government for picnic and pleasure grounds. Why then allow,  ���them to bemused foi the storage of  powder? There are plenty of places  where such dangerous explosives  might be kept with perfect, safety,  and it is up to the proper authorities to see that public property and  life are protected against the danger  we refer to.

CORRESPONDENCE.  To the Kditorof "The Atlin Claim."  Sir :���For the benefit of myself in  particular and Atlin'cyclists in gen-  eral, I would like to be informed  through the medium of your valuable paper, what rights, if any, has  a cyclist on the loads of the,Atlin  district. I have asked the opinion  of several on the subject and their  opinions differ. Some claim a cyclist  has the same rights as any other  vehicle, while one of. the most  prominent livery men,in the district  has flatly told, me they have no,  rights and that he wouldn't pull  one inch to the side of the road for a  bicycle provided it wasn't ridden by  a lady. With all due recognition  of his gallantry, I would like to  know if I, a law-abiding, tax-paying  citizen,have only,the light, in coin  men wilh thebeastsof prey, of sheering off into the woods, picking my  forlorn way among "stumps and  rocks, to the danger of life and limb,  while the driver of-stage or other  vehicle holds on his even way unconcernedly. " [ would also like to  know which is the proper side of the  road to pull to ; I think it is the left,  but others hold the contrary.

Mr. Brewer says that since 1901  he can see  a  big  improvement in  this district as   far as the possihil-  1 ities of the camp being a permanent  one,   through  the  introduction  of  dredge and hydraulic plants.    The  dredge impressed him very  favorably,    He regretted that  his  time  prevented him   remaining   longer.  Speaking of quarlz, hs  expressed  great surpiisc that  more  attention  was not paid  to it.    He remarked  that between here and Bennet Lake  strong veins can be traced for miles,  which yidd higher values than any  found iu this country, and that this  mineral zone is well worth prospecting.    Had  if been  in  the United  States, thousands of men would be  at work  examining  it.     He  predicts a very bright future ahead for  the country between here and Ben-  net Lake, provided that people get  in and prospect it.  Atlin Lodge, No. 15,  The Canadian, Bank of Commerce.

This  was don'o in tho six summer, months  by a rotation of soiling crops giving  each cow 60 pounds per day of a variety of green fodders with a small  feed ration- and in tho winter months  30 to d0 pounds .corn silage with  some hay and a mor^ concentrated  loed ration. At tho prices of feeds  and hay .m March, 1904, in tho absence of "silage, purchasing all of the  roughage, 'it cost '20, cents per day  per head^to keep tho same herd, or_  an increase in the cost of production  of ,milk of almost 50 per cent. -By  feeding alfalfa -hay with corn silage,  giving a value to each the exact cost  of raising^and harvesting according  to our" own* record, that is silage at  S2.40 and. alfalfa hay (average for  three years), at ��0.36 per ton, 'the  cost per cow per day would be' but  8.97 cents. , These figures arej significant' and well" worth consideration.

'A  ['ration of 36 pounds corn silage   and  117  pounds cowpea hay,  fed-in    com-  [parison with 36  pounds  silage,     five  1 jounds     corn     stalks,      four   pounds  Iwhcat bran,   three    pounds    brewer's  [grains  and    two   .pounds  cottonseed  [meal gave a slight advantage   to the  Icowpoa   ration.       These    fXDea'iments  Ishow the necessity of more intelligent  rfooding in order to maintain the flow  \oi milk and    more   economical selcc-  [tion  of food  nutrients  to cheapen  the  jost of production. The farmer who  [is fortunate to have in the latter  Spart of winter a good supply of sil-  I'n&c with clover hay will note a de-  Icided gain in his returns from the  I dairy.  What shall wc feed fn place of corn  [silage until early soiling crops can  [bo harvested? "Wet brewer's grains  [would furnish a s'icculent ration to .a  [large degree, yet hardly advisable, as  'it is almos*t nm-os.sible to get ' tho  I material in a lresh condition to bo  [depended upon, and which, if sour,  [would produce an objectionable qual-  [ity of milk, but the dried grains have  fcbeen freely used at this station, producing -\ery satisfactory results. In  rilhe absence of silage good results  'have boon obtained by wetting a  fnuantity of the dry grains a few  'hours before feeding, using just enough  I'water te make them soft without belong sloppy.  The    brewer's grains    will     furnish  [about the same bulk" and weight    as  lithe  silage,   but  much  richer  in   pro-  I'tein,     recjuiring a    strongly carbohydrate  feed.       Such a ration can    be  tialanccd as  follows:     Twelve  pounds  .hay,   six pounds  com  and  cob  meal,  live     pounds     brewer's     grains,   two  pounds bran  and   one  pound   cottonseed     meal.       Wet     enough  brewer's  jrains for 24   hours;  mix f>00  pounds  J.torn  meal,   200  pounds   wheat     bran  and 100 pounds cottonseed meal or a  smaller  amount  in  tlie  same  proportion  and  feed  about nine pounds   of  -Ihc    mixture     with    Ihc   wot   grains,  raryina the amount to  the weight of  '|ho cow and  tho  flow  of milk.  A new carbohydrate feed containing  k-oin 7 to  9 per  cent,   protein  called  Jricd molasses boot pulp, has recently  ��� >cen    put     upon  thc_ market,   which,  vhile bc'ng expensive" for tho amount  >f protein   it    contains may possibly  *c   economical  for    the pot-son    who  liust' purchase carbohydrates.        The  ji'riter is conducting experiments ��� with  !his  and the  dried,  unsweetened pro-  luct to ascertain    its    feeding value.  Tho. material  is: saturated  with   wa-  lor some hours before feeding and the  ���.mount fed  is equivalent in nutritive  ^���aluii to about 30 pounds silage. Tho  results thus far look encouraging.  T wish to  emphasize again  the im-  'ortunco  of  considering  tho  cost     of  bods  and tlie growing of  leguminous  irops to save  tho purchase of expen-  |ive concentrates.    Tho farmer should  lini  to  produce on  tlie  farm all the  ���oughage and  carbohydrates  and   to  *. large extent tho protein foods.

"  In general, commence spraying when  the plants are 6 to 8 inches high,"  and roppatjtho treatment at intervals  of ten to "14 "days in order "to keep  the plants ,.well covered with, ..bordeaux throughout tTic season. ' During epidemics of blight it may bo  necessary to spray as often as once  a week. Usually six applications  will bo required. The bordeaux  should contain six pounds of copper  sulphate to each 50 gallons water.  Whenever bugs or flea beetles are  plentiful add one pound paris green  or two quarts white arsenic stock solution to tho quantity of bordeaux  required to*-spray an acre.  Thoroughness of application is to  be desired at all times, but is specially important when flea beetles aro  ntimeious* or the weather favorable  to blight. Using tho same quantity  of bordeaux, frequent light applications arc likely to be more effective  than heavier applications made, at  long,, intervals. When a horse sprayer Having but a single nozzle por row  is used, it is bettor to go over th'o  plants once a week than to mako a  double spraying once in two weeks.  Those who wish to get along with  three sprayings should postpone tho  first one until there is danger of injury from    bugs or  flea beetles,  and  WHAT THE KING EATS.  What's Fit for  Him.  A Ma&s; lady who has been through  the mill with the trials of tho usual  housekeeper and mother relates an interesting incident that occurred not  long ago.     She says:  "I can with all truthfulness say  that Grape-Nuts is the most beneficial of all cereal foods in my family,  young as well as old. It is food and  medicine both to us. A few mornings ago at breakfast my littlo boy  said:  " 'Mama, docs the King cat Crape-  Nuts every morning?'  "I smiled and told him I did not  know but that I thought Grape-Nuts  certainly made a delicious dish, fit for  a King." (It's a fact that the King  of England and tho German Empcror  both cat Grape-Nuts).  "I find that by the constant use of  Grape-Nuts not only as -a morning  cereal,, but also in puddings, salads,  etc. made after the delicious recipes  found iii the little book in each package it is proving to be a great nerve  food for me besides having complete-,  ly cured a long standing case of indigestion." Name given by Fostuiii  Co..  Battle  Creek,  Mich.  There is no doubt Grape-Nuts- is  tlie most scientific food in the world.  Ten days' trial of this proper food  in place of improper food will show  in steady, stronger nerves, sharper  brain and the power to "go" longer  and further and. accomplish more.  There's a reason.  Look in each package for  the fam-  GRATN FED  CATTLE.  During tho height of tho grass season, it is probably not very profitable  to-food'grain to steers on "first-class  pasture���particularly if that pasture  bo blue grass.
