Cour-  In the foregoing ( published last  week )  I have outlined the nature of foods and their  oonstitue���������te in relation   to   the   manner in  which they are utilized by  the animal.    I  will now take up the merits of different  foods, those in whioh we are more closely  connected in growing and feeding; for being a farmer myself I know that we  muufc  form a ration out of the foods that we cau  grow here in British Columbia.    We cumot,  afford to buy imported foods,  such  as cotton seed meal, oil meal,  etc.    Of the feeds  we grow here there can be a good many excellent rations formed.  I will tirst mention roots, perhaps, before  going any farther. Ivill emphasize the  importance of having in the ration a succulent food such as roots or ensilage. Iu the  winter the cow is deprived of thoso nutritious grasses and require some easily dige.tied food to keep the system working properly. .".:  When we feed roote it is not necessary to  feed ensilage; they both serve the same par-  pose. The question is, Which can we raise  the most profitably ?  First for feeding milch cows come sugar  beeta and mangels; these are far superior to  any other root for this purpose.  Next in importance come carrots; in fact  these are the only two kinds of roots that I  would advise to feed for milk, although the  carrots are much inferior to beets. We hear  ifc said sometimes that carrots will dry a cow  up. Well that ta not so; but it is a fact  that we have to feed a much larger quantity of them, because they are much inferior  in nutriment. Turnips have a larger percentage of nutriment than carrots, but on account of a certain flavor that they giye to  the milk are objectionable.  We will now consider ensilage.    I am not  going to lay dowu the best methods for silo  ing feed as it would lake up too much time  in this paper; but I will say that it it more  economical and satisfactory to put through  a oatttng box. ' < '  !  Corn ia generally coiuidered the, cheapest  crop to grow f<wl- ensilage; and probably  where it will grow successfully is they best,-  tbe only objeetional feature about, com ia  that it is a fat forming food and we have to  ehooM other feeds to feed with it that- are.  Ugh in -���������ah formers.  ' Clover is a crop that is gaining ground' la  British Columbia for siloing. This is ��������� an  Ideal food being rich, in protien, therefore  good for milk, but is more difficult to cure,  in the silo" than corn; if it is put in st the  proper time I believe there is no difficulty.  ..Peas and oats mixed make a good crop for  siloing, but are most expeusive'ef any. The  yield will be about ten tjons per , acre of  green fca-er,,t_e_.i_tnre is very 'well balanced as regards digestible nutrient^.  Now,take some of our most important  drains: oats are raised very extensively and  are very well balanced. They are about 9  per cent digestible protien, 47 per cent car-  byhyrates and 4 per cent fat,' the most ob-  * jeotionable feature pX>hem is the thick hull/  They should always be finely ground for  feeding. Barley is very high. in. Carbyhy*  dr_tes,~couta_iiu(4 65.5 per cent that is digestible; therefore are very heating _ho  censtapatiog, I do not advise feeding tbu  'grain Co milk cows unless accompanied by  other grain that balances it.  Peas are very high ia digestible nutrient*  especially so in protien, containing 16 per  cent. This is a very valuable food for  milk cows aud should be more grown than  it usually is. Peas are generally considered  very fattening, but they only contain 7 per  eeut of fat.  Wheat is a very concentrated food in its  whole state it ia not adapted for feeding  milk cows, but wheat bran on the contrary  is well adapted for milk production.  In dry fodders, clover takes first ptaee.  It is very high in protien, therefore should  be grown as much as possible . Another  thing about growing of clover is that it  takes very little nitrogen from the soil.  Thus, if a soil has sufficient of phosphates  and potash, two constituents that are nearly  always in abundance, clover would flourish  on a very poor soil.  Timothy is not a good hay for milk cows,  but it is extremely palatable and a cow will  leave almost any hay for it.  Mixed oat and pea hay is well balanced  and is much improved by cutting.  Alfalfa or Lucern is   the same   value   as  clover and is also mnoh improved by outting  Red Top is of more value than   timothy,  but as a rule does not grow   a   very   heavy  crop. '.'���������'������������������  ..... There are other foods of much importance  but not generally grown in B. C.  1 have given quite a list of feeds now and  the next step will be to feed them to the  best advantage, good cows, in com ortable  quarters, plonty of Bait, a quiet attendant  are Borne of the requirements' to success in  winter feeding, and I will say at the last,  keep well read up, take a good dairy paper  there are a nnmber of them in reach of all  and a person need never fear of getting behind the times.

Courage has no geographical, limitations In Cuban waters and New York  tenement, by brave marine and braver little maiden, the spirit of heroism is shown  alike. Alice Oliver came upon the body  of her mother, dead ��������� by her own hand, in  their home. Her little brother and sister,  playing in an adjoining room, saw on  Alice's faco no shadow of the aWfuf sight.  By means of moro alluring playthings sho  coaxed them into a room farther removed  from the shut in, haunting horror.   Shall we go for a car ride.'.' she said  In cheerful tone.    She dressed each of the  little ones carefully, and the three set forth  in the  storm.    More  than 30  blocks distant was the home of a friend.',-  Arrived  there, little Alice drew the - woman  into  the next room, whispering, that the younger ones  might riot hear: "Wlllyou take  care of  the children  while I am gone.  Mother has killed herself."  ���������   ��������� Out into the storm again went the child,  . grown, under' stress of sorrow a woman.  Her  head did  not reach  the desk  upon  '"which - the sergeant was writing. ������������������' He' did  riot hear her tired little voice.   She had to  ���������repeat;her story.  "Excuse me, sir, but I came to tell ybu  that my mother has killed herself."'   '���������''  She gave them the number of her home,  ' gave them  her, father's name,, dully told  the details of the tragedy and how she had  tried  to  hide it from tho children, and  SUNDAY COCKFIGHTS POPULAR.  'A Description of an Event of -This Sort  Which Was Attended by the Spaniards  of Manilla���������Tricky and Dish on as t Even  In Their Games.  Even in his sports the Spaniard is cruel  and debased. Wo all know his fondness for  bullrighting. He also appreciates cockfights. A few Americans, who chose to  call themselves sports, sometimes get up  cockfights, but the practice is not only forbidden by law, but is so discountenanced  by public opinion that cockfights here are  comparatively rare.  In Spain, however, 'and. among thc  Spanish residents of the Philippine islands cockilghting is a very popular  amusement. ,Tho contests are generally  held on Sundays, too, and are liberal ly advertised. Cutcliffo Hyne, tho celebrated  English story writer and traveler, has  written a description of a cocklight which  ho saw in Manilla. Hertells the story as'  follows:  It was, held on a Sunday in the Calle  Santa Barbara, and all the respectable  English folk of Manilla, both visitors und  residents, ostentatiously went to church  to show their disapproval.

The children had been spared, the sight  that would always haunt her. Her terrible story was' told. Her duty was done.  She had fainted.  Mrs. Oliver was the victim of hereditary  insanity and took her life in a fit of morbid brooding. The story of the tragedy as  told by little Alice is as follows:  "Mamma had been to the store, and I  saw when she came back that she was  worse. I watched her. She went down  stairs and came back right away talking  to herself. There wasn't anybody there.  Then she went into "her bedroom, and I  heard her open a drawer and soiriething  click. . I know now it was the razor. She  cysue . into the , sitting room, looking  strange.���������' She said we children,"should go  into our bedroom and stay until we were  called.' A little while afterward I heard  something fall, and I went .out to see what  it was. ���������, I. went into the kitchen'and saw  my mamma lying there and saw the knife  and heard the strange sound in her throat,  and then I knew what sho had done.

They - never have anything but  sensible flat heels for walking, but when it  comes to a dancing slipper no French heel  is too high for them. But they keep a  great variety of footgear and are prepared  for any occasion. Thus Lady Ermyptrude  Russell, when she riaarried Sir Edward  Malet, included no'less than 1,000 pairs of  boots, shoes and slippers in her, trousseau.  This was an unusual supply, however.'

There v^as.a crowd in the street, but no  sign,or' placard to show what was going  on. Ono took tickets through a grating  at 1' peseta a hoad with an extra fee of 5  centimes for tho inevitable government  stamp. One then went inside through the  entrance door farther on. .  Inside, what was once a patio, or court,  was roofed over by a metal awning, which  left plenty of light and air space between  the roof and tho top of tho .walls. The,  cockpit itself was in the center of the  building, a slightly raised platform; mud  floored and ringed in by a trim green paling 12 foot in diameter.-  Round tho edge of the pit were two  semicircles of green benches, on which the  elite of tho noble sportsmen present could  sit and drink np tho entertainment with  their honored noses on a level with tho  fighting floor. Beyond these again were  rings of rough benches, each row higher  than the ono in front of it, like tho seats  in an operating theater. These went right  up to the walls, and above them was a  gallery with more tiers of seats, so that  the place could be systematically packed  to its utmost capacity.  j Tho fighting cocks were kept in small  coops in a closed dark . cupboard at one  side of tho gallery, whero each amused  himself at intervals by crowing out his  own particular chapter of defiance.  Tho audience dribbled in slowly. The  lower orders came first. ,We recognized  some of them with surprise. For instance,  there was' a professional- beggar, who on  weekdays exhibited a ghastly eye, like an  overgrown oyster at .a lucrative pitch, beside the cathedral and clamored for alms  on the plea of total blihdriess. But there  he was in a seat ol. so beneath-us with his  professional eye closed _nd another very"  sharp optic quite open looking a very different person.

Another (the.umpire) sponged its-  head and neck carefully over, first with  alcohol and then with water, and then he'  dried it most delicately with a fair white  towel.    . '���������.  And meanwhile the din in the place increased. There was room for 300 people,  but 600 had made up their minds to get  in and were doing it. The army was  largely represented among the audience,  and so was cigarette smoke, and so were  children.    Then the two little semicircles  of green seats close up to the pit were oc-  ; cupied by five senors, who-oric^ could see  feltthemselves very justly to be the envy  of allbeholders, 'and the door to the street  was shut and; the business of the morning  bfegan.  Two light speckled birds came on first;  Each in turn was slung in a handkerchief,  so that it could riot escape, weighed at the  scale and the weight publicly announced.  , Then the umpire with a lemon tested the  spurs of each for poison, stabbing the fruit  well home, and afterward wiped the spurs  clean of acid with the embroidered towel,  and next the  birds wore put on the floor  of the pit behind the gates and the bipeds  without feathers got out.  The gamecocks stepped briskly round  the gates into the open, and the attendants closed the gates from without, and in  that complete ring of green paling the battle was to be fought out to a fin ish'.  One looked eagerlyenoughfor some distinguished luark by which the birds could  bo told one from another, but they were  curiously alike. The feathers of both were  colored with the same small, light gray  speckles. The head of each had. been trimmed clear of all trace of combs and wattle  till tho poor fowls looked as if they were  wearing tigh������ scarlet cowls. All round the  root of the tail, both abovo and beneath,'  the smaller ' feathers' had been plucked  away and the bare skin rubbed till it was  purple'red and callous with the daily application of. salt. From whero we sat the  birds matched one another like two beans.  But there was no time for a prolonged  survey of them. They did not waste ten  seconds in preliminary sparring. They  advanced up to one another like feathered  heroes, pecked, stabbed, beat with their  wings and jumped over one another all at  one time and almost while one drew a  breath. Two or three feathers fluttered  out, and these, by tho way, wero almost  tho only ones shed during the ��������� main, and  then they turned and wore at it again  beak and spur, for all they were worth.  The-voices of tho watching crowd had died  away in silence, and the birds fought in silence also. It was only when they stood  together in a close rally that the excitement got too keen to be held in check and  broke out in shouts ahd noisy bets.  Artificial steel' spurs are not used in  these Philippino cockfights. The cock's  <natural weapon is sharpened up to the  "keenest of. points, and if by any mishap  he loses or breaks it arid if he is worthy of  the attention another is cut off a dead bird  and strapped to his heel.  ' The spur work in this fight was so quick  that one could hardly seo it.    The' birds  pecked atone another and hit with their  wings, and then one .would jump over^tho  other arid spur as' he passed like a flash of  lightning.    A little blood showed on' the  feathers, but not much; but as  tho main  went on, and it lasted for 20 minutes, the  ' birds got so  staggery that first one and  then the other kept on sparring for wind.  It was a very queer sight to see the exhausted bird ram "its head  under- Its opponent's wing  and stay thero  and  suffer  itself to be spurred and  pecked and dragged about the flopr on ��������� the pit  till it had  recovered sufficiently to take the other in  ohancery in its turn. /  * So the fight went on. But flesh and beak  and feathers have limit to their endurance,  and for the  last few minutes tho plucky  birds  reeled" back on  their tails as  they  faced ono another, and every blow was a  knockdown.    At last ono cock  staggered  off to the side of the Inclosure and put its  cropped red poll between the green palings.  The audience froze  into silence.    The  five cognescenti on the green seats -beside  the pit pointed  to tho bird with wise fingers,  discussed the situation  with   cold  learning and gave an order.    Tho two attendants went into the pit and each took  up a bird and put  it behind  one of the  gates as before.  . Tho  attendants  stepped  down and ' the  speckled  gamecocks  staggered out into the middle of the pit.  But the bird which had thrown up tho  sponge before lurched off to the green pal-.,  bags again and thrust' its pathetic head  through' in full acknowledgment of dofcat.  Tho other fowl took a brace on himself  and hitched up his draggled tail ,and  thrust out his meager chest, raised'his  scarlet head aloft and crowod in victory.  hand, too, to take in the sights The train  , had hardly, stopped long enough for us to  see anything,,but-that didn't deter a long  haired individual, from, the;plains from  swinging off and-, whirling .his lariat, in  the air quicker than you could bat an eye,  had that .poor, lonesome < pig < fast.

All her efforts to soot .ie it had been  vain, and finally Mr. Blynkins laid down  the book whose reading he had interrupted two or three times a page to cast blameful glances and said:  , "You are not adopting the method likeliest to quiet the child. You have been  humming to it, but what the child needs  is music. Give him to me and I'll show  you what I mean."  He took the child and proceeded to chant  lullaby. The little one stopped crying and  stared at him:  "There!" said Mr. Blynkins as he  reached the end of a verse. "What he  wanted was music, real music. Of course  the fact that I used to sing in a glee club  and bad'my voice cultivated may make a  difference too."'  ..

A volcano lights up the country by night  ���������a pillar of fire���������while as -alsa-  where the sun illumes by day.  We presume the hot lava will be  piped into the miners' cabins for  heating and cooking purposes. Al  together that part of the world must  be a " wonderfnl country." We  shouldn't be surprised if the mineri  found, after the lava had baked  their potatoes, boiled their coffee  and fried their bacon, it would run  off into the ash pan a few ounces of  liquid gold as a residue. <.,  And Mr.'���������Robertson, member  elect for Cowichan on the Turner  ticket, has resigned 1 And all because he had violated the statute  which forbids a member doing work  or business for the government for  pay!. Certainly a very proper law  which'Robertson should have known  and the question is whether he will  plead ignorance. The fact is both  he and Neill should have known,  without reference to any statute,  that it was not the proper thing to  do. We suppose the people will be  put to the expense, of, another by-  election in this case also. So far as  parties are concerned "honors are  easy," And now what with the by-  elections and the courts, no one  can be certain of the exact complexion of the opposing forces when, the  legislature meets, The probabilities, nevertheless, are that a general  election will take place, and soon.  Christmas is coming ! Yes merry  Christmas J The stores so inviting  with Xmas goods would not let us  forget it if we would, and who is  there who would wish to ?  The advertisements in The News  show that our merchants, shop  keepers, and druggist, are prepared  to furnish suitable goods for Xma.  gifts. Wanamaker in The Ladies'  Home Journal gives this sound advice :  "Buy your Xmas goods early. If  you pome in person you will find  less irritation from crowds, fuller  stocks of goods, quicker service,  and so you will have greater peace."  Christmas means so much to the  little ones that the the churches  are already making preparations  for Xmas Trees. These affairs are  generally arranged so as not to con  flict, The one at the Methodist  will be on Monday the 26th,  Doubtless the Presbyterians will  have theirs on the [evening of the  24th, as usual, though no official  announcement has yet been made  by them or the English Church.  But these will come, and the children made happy with joyful anti-  cip .tioui., will not be disappointed,  In many a home, too, are nimble fingers working oo some choice article foi a  Christmas present. These gifts, the cre-  atons of friends, are the most precious of  all.

"Keep it eat of the paper" is the ory  which tbe local newspaper publisher daily  beers. To oblige often costs considerable,  thongh the party who makes the request  thinks the granting scarcely worth saying  "thank yon" for. A newspaper is a peculiar article in the public's eye. The news-  gather is rtormed at because he gets hold of  one item, and is abused because he does not  get another. Young men and often young  women, ae well as older, perform acts which  become legitimate items for publication and  then rash to the newspaper offices to beg  tbe editors not to notice their escapades.  The next day they condemn the same paper  for net baying published another party doing the same thing they were guilty of,  forgetting apparently, their late visit to the  printing office. The subscribers expect to  read the news, and there is always wonder  when, for charity - sake, au item on the  street end in everybody's mouth, is not  fessd is tho next issue of the paper.
