THE JUDGE'S   RESIDENCE. %  ��������� Nanaimo's Board, of Trade resolution,  re the  residence of   Hon.  Judge Harrison, says,   " Whereas, t  Nanaimo  is  the only city'in.'the;'���������'  said Cqunty.'\ That body is but ill      :  informed'. '   Cumberland is a city.  and is situated1 in  " that county,'/  'v  "and   moreover,   is in the centre of   *  the most important coal  fields of -  that county.   Really, if Judge Harrison was   to Change   his residence  (for which we see no need), this is   '  the place he should move to.    But  ���������  why squabble   over   the   matter ?  Judge Harrison's duties call him to  various places, and for all practical  purposes, Victoria does as well as  any place for a residence.  I  -1  .  wKantsvaMimx^rtitrtMtwmatKm^i  Mr H.

"Oh, yes, Hollis is mighty grateful, I  - -reckon," replied   the'foreman  when  I  expressed my astonishment.    "Hollis'll  '    come .down with'  the money all right,  ���������don't yon fear;."'   There was something  ���������peculiar   in .the   foreman's   tone,   that  /made me suspicious.  . "Does Hollis know that he's expected  Vv-fio coot'rib-ntej." 1 asked. -  - "No, 6pt,.yet. He will, though. I'm  j,a-f'onter se*e him now.'.' The foreman  .hitched his holster conveniently forward and departed. I shouted an order  -vafter   him to the  effect that, whatever  * Hollis might or might not be willing to  ..p-ive. there should be no coercion in the  Matter.    I never knew whether or not  this order was obeyed    f rather think it  was not.  I did not witness the announcement  of Spider's promotion.   Long before sunrise I had started out with the foreman  to arrange with  Lorena for  the  use of  his pastures.  The herd was to follow us.  As the foreman had said. 1 found Lorena to be a most villainous old   Mexican and surrounded  by a , most villainous crew of followers.   Ho knew that we  were at his mercy, and therefore overcharged us frightfully   ' The pasturage  on his range was good, and that at least  was a'comfort, but 1 didn't  at all like  the prospects in other ways    Two 'days  later,  [when    the   cattle   arrived,   we  camped, as before, on the banks of, tbe  river.    Our ostensible reason for camping there was. of course, that we would  be on hand at the earliest possible moment when the river should fall enough  to  allow us   torcro?s.     But   really,we  chose this place, the foreman and I, in  order to be, as   far, away as we  could  from  the wicked   little town   of  Agua  Caliente, the   headquarters  of   Lorena  aud his friends.    At best the town was  far nearer us than  we   liked.    The distance was only 20 miles or so.  <���������  For a week or  two after we arrived  ,we did   not seem   to me  to have much  cause for alarm.   In fact, 1 would  have  been rather relieved , had   not the foreman kept up a continual croaking   The  cattle were in  no way interfered with.,  It is true that many of our men would  avail   themselves of  every possible opportunity to get -to Agua Caliente, and  would . frequently' stay    there   much.  ,longer than   they ought;   but   this/in  view of the time that had lapsed since  they bad   seen   a town of  any kind  at  all, was no more than one must expect.  There was little for the men to do.  In fact, for this firrt fortnight, the  life settled back to its old monotony as'  far as I was concerned. To Spider .the  new responsibilities that he. had .assumed seemed , a never failing delight."  He worked indefatigably. and'.at night  was quite ready, to go to sleep without  the preamble of setting the camp -by  the ears,-according to his former habit.  Apart,from other reasons. 1 think, that  bpkit-r would at this* tune  nave cohtid-  'eren such an outbreak beneath his dignity, unless committed for weighty and  well considered reasons. Besides, his  outfit arrived, which-placed him, when  the first stunning shock of surprise had  subsided, on tbe pinnacle of all earthly  bliss ..     '        -      ' "\,  ' Spider might well be pleased. Tbe  "fcoys" had,done their best, and Spider  was equipped from' head (to heel with,  cowbov paraphernalia���������saddle,* bridle:;  spurs and all His-chaps-were resplend:".  ent The new leather made his legs, so  the men'said, look like those of a newly  hatched-chicken, they were'rso yellow/  So taken with them was Spider that he  was nearly thrown several times the  first day he wore them because, instead  of looking to see wliere his horse was  gcing, he was admiring his legs But a  glory greater even than the chaps lay  in his "gup," the heavy pistol, that  with its holster and well filled cartridge belt .Spider proudly buckled  around his waist He' seemed to have  grown two inches taller as he strutted  about the camp. The outfit would have  been woefully incomplete without this  weapon If a herder becomes unhorsed,  the half wild cattle will attack him  oftener than not and without this means  of defense he would be helpless.  Spider threw himself into his work  with an energy greater, if possible, than  before. Lack of energy was at no time  one of Spider's faults, and this was  most fortunate, for we needed him and  every one on whom we could depend  more and more as the days passed by  Matters in the camp were,going from  bad to worse.  Those men who went most frequently to Agua Caliente began going oftener than ever. Sometimes they would  leave their work in ordsr to go there,  and when they returned they would be  filled with the malignant whisky prevalent in that region or with ^the still  more malignant mescal Could we have  replaced them these men would have  been discharged at once, but we could  uot replace thein For a time 1 was  comforted by the reflection that as ?oon  as their money gave ont this conduct  unist,cease It, did not cease, but instead it became worse than ever. Some  of the cowboys left. Some became so  useless that, great as our need was, we  had to discharge them. Of all the men  who. went often to Agua Caliente, Hollis  alone would return sober.  "Au he's jus' the las' one I care  about," said the foreman as for the  hundredth time we were holding a  council. "He's ban* in glove With Lorena an the hull gang.

From my residence  -    I could see her many times a day while  she ,\vas at her'stable work or coming  back and forth with her milk cans.'  "What was her name? . Her,name was  Margaret' Hauggery; she had been married aud at that time was a widow. Her  husband and little child died just after  she came to New Orleans; so we learned  after she became famous. Sho was alone  ' and poor in a strange country and went,  to work in the stables for a living. Somehow everybody liked Margaret; her smile  was sweet and her words shrewd. - The  children, called her Margaret, and she  knew their names and. answered their  salutations along the street as she drove  by in the milk cart.  "After some years Margaret had saved  enough to buy a bit' of ground that had  . on it a small bakery.   The place was sold  '   for a  trifle,   but  now Margaret/was  in  royal trim���������a landowner and a manufacturer; for she opened the shop and began  bread and pie making for the neighbors.  Presently there Was a largo bakery built;  soon bread carts wero running over the  city bearing the words 'Margaret's Bak-.  ery.'    It became the fashion to  buy  at  Margaret's place.   During war, pestilence  arid disaster Margaret's fires were never  out, and the delicious rolls kept up their  weight and quality, no matter what else  in life failed.    Then  she  began  running  her free,bread carts during tho fever panic.    No one went hungry who was within  sound   of  her cart  wheels.     From  that  time on no one need go hungry in New  Orleans���������those too poor to buy wore given  a loaf fresh find-white as the best, and it  was given  heartily,  with  a   'God  bring  1 thee better times!'   There was no distinction in Margaret's favors.    She gave to  white and black, of any church or none.  'Are you hungry?' that is all that was  necessary.    'Here is.bread; take it with  God's blessing.'    There have been in this  city dread days,- which seemed as if God  and  everybody  had  failed-us  but- Margaret; days'when she almost literally fed  the city.    During the yellow fever panic,  ���������Margaret began her noble work of taking  the children/from the homes of death and  .putting them into  a   house under good  care,   supporting  them  herself in  every  particular.     Soon the , one asylum grew  into many; the dozens of her little charges  were numbered by hundreds���������and at the  time of her death thousands.   At the gate  'of every orphan asylum in the city Margaret's bread cart, with its smokiiig.'rolls,  was seen daily; at every charitable institution whatsoever >iip took the privilege  I of giving her bread freely, and Margaret's  i name headed the list for every charity.  V   "Our grand Charity hospital, one of the  '������������������;) most famous m the world,  was largely  j the  gift  of Margaret.     You  must  visit  that hospital.   It will make you better all  your   life   for   having   seen   it.

Immediately he thought to himself:  "They, will find me in a faint on the  floor and bleed me. for a fit, and I need all  my blood to digest this pork pie."  Thereupon (he hurriedly drew out his  pencil, wrote on a piece of paper aud  stuck it in the band.of his hat. Then he  resigned himself to the deep sleep that  came upon him/ He did not wake until  the train had pulled into tho London station, and, still dazed by his slumber, he  jumped into a carriage and was .driven  home.  The grins of the servants and the exclamation of. his wife were followed by  the inquiry from one of the children, "Oh,  papa, what have you got in your hat?"  Then 'he'femembered his experience on  the train. Taking off.his hat, he removed  the large white paper on winch he had  scribbled this petition to the general public:  "Don't bleed me.

This prejudice, however, the' accomplished Dr.  von Richthofen is rapidly overcoming.     , ,       '  '  In Germany, as elsewhere, the  worst obstacle's to righting the  wrongs, of women are the indifference  and more or Jess sullen resignation  of- the women themselves.

Elizabeth von Richthofen was born  at Mctz twenty-seveh years ago.  When she was eighteen, ' she passed  .her examinations and became a  teacher, first in Metz, later in Heidelberg. It was in the classic old  university town in 1897 that^she resolved .to study for a university degree. She was educated partly in  Berlin, partly in Heidelberg. In .the  summer of 1901 she passed her final  examinations magnificently before  the faculty of philosophy at Heidelberg, winning the most illustrious  honors in political economy.  Such is the; woman who in Germany  does not esteem it beneath her to  accept a place under the Government  as inspector of factories where women are employed. The precedent  might well be followed by Canadian  women university graduates as well  as by those who havo tbe appointing  of factory inspectors. Oddly enough,  however, this very fact of her, brilliant Qualifications for her office at  first created a prejudice against Dr.  von Richthofen in the dumb and stu-  ! horse.

I chose Heidelberg, which  in those days was the best known, and  took a three years'"course. I joined  ,one of the corps and in time became  involved in several student duels.  When. I left Heidelberg, where I had  taken more interest in the small sword  than my studies, I stopped in Paris before returning to America, with a, view  to seeing some  French fencing..-   One  evening a party of us visited the cele-  ..  .   brated school of M. Brisson.   While we  were watching the pupils fence a man  entered and after looking on'for awhile  "',u' proposed  to  take  the  foils   with  the  -"'' principal.    Brisson^ consented and was  astonished, as we all were, at the stranger's skill.   After disarming his adversary he took up a piece of chalk, rubbed it on the foil, and, calling to Bris-  ���������v    son to place himself on guard,, made  one brilliant stx-oke after anothcr���������and  '   at last left a chalk mark of a figure 8  on the fencing master's waistcoat directly over, the heart.  ���������    "Victor   Morrel!"  exclaimed   several  who   were   present   with   ,the   same'  breath.   .'   " .  "Who is Victor Morrel?" I asked.  "The   most' noted   swordsman    In'  France."  .     ���������     "A duelist?" ' ,  , "No; singularly enough, he has not  the courage to fight a duel."     , "  ��������� ' ' "What is his occupation?"

' '" ������������������ '. *<   ,'  Three years later, in .company with  f: my .friend Walter Douglas,' I again visited Europe, sailing from New York to  Cherbourg  and   going   from   there  to  Mentone, a winter resort lnt the' south *  - of ^France.   One evening Douglas went  .   to walk with a. little French girl who  had captivated;him "by her smart appearance. He,failed to return to the  hotel, and toward morning, becoming  . anxious for his safety, I went to search  for him. I found him lying in his blood  in the gardens stabbed through the  heart His coat had been cut by the  point of a knife .or sword so as to make  what looked like the letter S. The  blade had entered the heart at the  point where the tracing ceased.  In agony at the murder of my friend,  I,called a gendarme, and the body was  removed. I made every effort to find  the murderer; but without success. The  mysterious  letter   S  cut  in   his   coat  - would not be dropped from my mind.  It seemed to partly awaken some memory. At last I remembered Morrel and  the figure 8 he bad chalked on the  waistcoat of M. Brisson. Then it occurred to me that the letter S was an  incomplete figure S.  Going at once to the police office, I  ��������� requested them to "arrest the little  French girl whom Douglas had been  with on the night of Jiis murder, and  when she arrived at the police office I  questioned her ' myself. She came* in  charge of a gendarme, frightened and  weeping, but, I fancied, on her guard.  "Have you a lover?" I'asked.  "No, m'sieu," - * -  "Do you know any one expert with  the sword?"  "No. m'sieu."  She preserved her equanimity, but I  law that the question startled ^her.  "Did you ever see a man cut or mark  the. figure 8 upon an adversary's  breast?"  She turned palo and did not reply.  "Where is Victor-Morrel ?V ��������� '  This broke her down. "I had nothing  to do with it," she cried, "He was jealous of���������the American. Do not bring  me to the guillotine, I beseech you."  I turned to the prefect of police.  "The case is in your hands," 1 said.  "Find Victor Morrel."  "Where is M. Morrel?" he asked of  the girl.  "Oh, I do not know!   Spare me!"*  'fTake her away," said the officer to  the gendarme.  "She will finish her ca-  "It looked like the letter S, but had  you completed it you would have made  an 8 of it."  The prosecutor held up the murdered  man's coat, on which had been cut,the  letter S. The prisoner fell back������ clutching his hair and moaning:  "I must have been drunk.'r  .  It appeared later that he had heen  drinking heavily and was unconscious  of cutting the mark he was. accustomed to leave on those, he worsted in  fencing. He was convicted, and before  I left France he was taken'out of,jail  one morning before daylight and guillotined. ALAN JAY PONDIB. /  , A Jolie.

The  fence A&A A is put on either side of the  post to suit tho length of the cow, or  for a short cow can be moved toward  the cow's head several inches by nailing on a four by four stud on the post  next to the cow, then putting on the  bars A.

"  'A .Dairy Jiusiness Conducted Under Government Auspices���������The Government  Ci-tamery sic Calgary��������� How tho Project  V.'us Financed ���������How the IS Creameries  Cover si Large Kxp;w:se of Territory���������  IV hat tlie Government Undertake*.  , More than 1,000,000 pounds of  golden yellow butter is being turned  ���������out 'of the. Dominion Government  creameries, located in'the'territories  of Assinaboia, Saskatchewan and  Alberta,' each year.  Back of this statement tnere is  an interesting- history of the development of an industry of great  importance to the fanners. of the  territories.- Success did not'* come  until the'experiment,, had very nearly  failed because of a .lack of experience, 'not iji butter making,  but    in finunceoring the project.' ,  It was in .1897 that the agricultural department of the 'Federal  Government first took.hold of tho  3dairy interests of the western territories. ' Previous to that time  several private creameries .had 'been  constructed, and an attempt , made  to operate ,them, but, in nearly "every  case they had proven failures. Settlement had not at. that "time' advanced far enough to alTord, a sufficient 'production of cream' 5tof keep  a creamery running if it' had to depend upon any one locality. If, on  the other hand, it, could not turn out"  a considerable amount of butter each  year; and so be able to do a large  business, 'the margin of profit    on a  state of market warrants, its sale.  To make -these 18 creameries meet  the demands of such a great expanse-  of territory 'as is included 'within  the boundaries of Assinaboia, Saskatchewan and Alberta a system, of  cream .transportation has been arranged.  / /,  At stated times a refrigerator car  from each creamery makes . the  rounds of the��������� railroad stations in  the territory served by the creamery  in which ,the farmer's cream is conveyed to the point of manufacture.  The Government arranged for "and  pays the expense of this service-, and  (lesiimes all liability for the cream  ���������when it has been delivered - at ,tne  station platform.    ''-   ,  From- each lot of cream received a  sample is taken and "churned ' in a-'  test churn. From this the value in  butter "is judged of the entire lot  when it is manufactured into butter  in the great churns. For this transportation of,cream, the manufacture  and marketing of butter the' farmer  is chained four cents' per pound. If  this fails to meet the expense of operation the Government makes up the  m of Garaia  1  fioven?ii?ei?L Dairy Jg'ta'uop.  reer on the guillotine."  This was too much for her fidelity to  her lover. "I do not know where he  Is," she said- "Yesterday he was in  Marseilles."  That evening Morrel was" arrested In  Marseilles and brought to Mentone for  trial. He put on a bold front, feeling  sure that there were no witnesses of  the murder.  "M. Morrel," asked the prosecuting  attorney, "why were you so foolhardy  as to leave the figure 8 on the heart of  the man you killed?"  "I did not," the prisoner exclaimed,  paling.   . :.   _.  Weigrlits For Barn. cUse.  Frequently rhe farmer wishes to  feed a given weight of this, that or the  other stuff and has no scales at hand  to weigh it. If he has a quart measure handy, he can use it to measure  out the required weight. The .quart  weight of various feeds is as follows:  Cottonseed meal, 1.5 pounds; linseed  meal, old process, 1.1 pounds; gluten  meal, 1.7 pounds; gluten feed, 1.2  pounds; wheat bran, coarse, ,5 pound;  wheat middlings, coarse, .8 pound, and  fine, 1.1 pounds; mixed wheat feed, .6  pound; cornmeal, 1.5 pounds; oats, 1.2  pounds; rye bran, .G pound; H. O'. dairy  feed, .7 pound, and Victor corn feed, .7  pound per quart. These weights are  worked out by the Connecticut experiment station. With these equivalents  at hand the fecdinan may know where  he is at when he desires to feed by  weight.  Feeding  Value of Applet).  The experience of careful farmers indicates that apples are worth more for  feeding than the usual cider mill price,  says Farm and Home. A Massachusetts dairyman who had a lot of low-  grade apples began on a large, old  cow, which was.nearly dry, feeding her  In connection^with her summer pasture  exclusively two quarts of hard Green-  lugs and Baldwins at night and the  same quantity in���������. the morning, gradually increasing until at the end of a  week she was eating about one bushel  per day. Her milk increased from  four to six quarts per day. Whero  there are short pastures and the necessity of living cows some extra food inferior grade apples may be turned to-  profitable account.  "Wasliins and "Working? Bniter.  After drawing off the buttermilk  wash twice or until the wash water  runs off clear. Then work in salt to suit  the taste of your trade and set .away  for three or four hours, then rework  and pack or stamp. The interval between salting and stamping allows  the salt thoroughly to permeate the  whole mass, and the second working  also insures a uniform mixing of the  salt as well as working out any excess  of water. Never work butter when it is  warm enough to be salvy. There are  two watchwords for the butter maker.  They are cleanliness and uniformity  and are worth remembering if'you are  looking for trade and reputation. 1  *    GOVEKXMEXT CREAMEHY AT CALGAiiY.  small business was not sufficient     to  live.       ' x - 1J .  Out of these private creameries the  farmers /were, -getting but little.  Many of them, in fact, were getting  .nothing; as the . creameries were too  far away from them .to''reach them  without "paying excessive- freight  charges on their cream, in ^addition  to the risk they had to take of .its  souring before reaching tho point of  manufacture, and the Government  undertook to supply the demand.  A special dairy  commissioner's  department was created  as  a     feature  of the agricultural 'department  of the  Government,   and   to   this  was  given  an  ample capital  for the  leasing    of  creameries   already   built,   and        for  the, buildings of  others  as   the business warranted.      To repay the Government for  building  new  creameries  it was proposed to  establish a sinking fund to which would be  paid one  cent per pound for  all  butter manufactured.      Applications   were      very'  many,   and  soon  it  was  seen  that it  was  no more possible for the       department to have built and equipped  all the creameries that were demanded than it would have been possible  for them to have operated them successfully  and  profitably   if   they  had  been built,  and the attempt to meet  the demand  came.near proving    disastrous to the whole enterprise.  But  a solution for the  dilemma in which  the  department found itself was finally found, a solution so simple, and  so,practicable, that it turned a seeming   failure  into   immediate  success.  The Government ceased to build  creameries, but instead attempted  the operation of such, as were built  either hy stock companies, individuals or municipalities, thus throwing- the burden of construction upon  those who insisted that (heir  erection was necessary,, and that  their operation would prove piofit-  able. At the same time the charges  for manufacture and'"marketing were  somewhat changed.   ;  To-day\, there arc in operation  throughout these territories- 18  ���������creameries located at Churchbridge,  Saltcratcs, Yorkton,     Moosomin,'  Whiteford, Grenfel, Qu'Appclle, He-  gina, Moose Jaw, Maple Creek, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Calgary,Olds,  Innisfail, Red Deer, Tindastoll, We-  taskiwiri, 'Strathcona and Fort Saskatchewan.'

Up to the  present time the price 'realized by  the farmer for all-'butter manufactured by .the Government has ranged  between 17 and ,18 cents per pound,  and the difference is paid twice annually, the first of November, and the  first of May."A small-portion ,of triis  comes from the sale of by-products  with which the farmer is credited,  and which is sold usually to individuals in the neighborhood of each  creamery.    . -  A market .for the butter manufactured in these Government creameries  is found in British .Columbia, in the  Kootenay mining district, in, the  Klondike, in the^ far eastern countries and to the- Northwest Mounted  Police, and is shipped in sealed tins  of one, two and five pounds ..and ' in  Australian butter boxes bf -l^, ,,28  and 56 pounds.

An advance  price of ten cents per dozen is paid  the farmers monthly, but an average  price of about 3 7 cents per dozen-is  being secured. The eggs are shipped  to Calgary and held there in cold  storage warehouses until the current  price warrants their sale.  diateiy began, to recite aloud the  sixth verse instead.

An English'clergyman had married  a young woman with a reputed dow-  ty of about ������10,000, while he himself had "great expectations." Needless to say, every soul in the village knew about it. It was the  first Sunday after- their return from  the honeymoon, and when the sermon was finished the parson proceeded as usual to give out the  hymn, verse for yerse, to his rustic  congregation. All went well until  the fifth verse was reached, and the  parson began: "Forever let my  grateful heart," when suddenly and  with some confusion he exclaimed :  "Omit    the  fifth  verse!"   and  imme-  Mr.  Peclc  Aftain,  "Dear me," said Mrs. Peck, who was  reading the paper while Henry waited .  patiently for a look at it. "Here is a  case of a woman who packed up all  the furniture and left'home while her  husband was away at work, and now  he can find no traces of her."  And Henry's face lost its expression  of patient resignation, taking on the  light of a great and buoyant hope,,for  he had read that women were sometimes influenced by what they saw in  the papers. .  Women at Golf,  The fact that the golf tournament system promotes healthy, normal exercise,  which keeps the women in the open air ...  ull summer and transforms the frail ones  into robust, happy creatures, seems to argue in its favor, provided the stimulation  of encounter is needful. Assertions,  however, have been made that tournaments provoke jealousies, enmities, and  cheating, that they harden a woman un- ���������  duly and that they are breaking up tho  household.gods in'our homes. If, woman  is a brainless creature, without responsibility or accountability, without the power of self guidance, all this may be true.  History does not so picture her.  Having Fun With His Same.

Consumption    is    a  wasting" disease of the lungs and,at  the earliest symptom of lung trouble  stepsr should  be taken  to  arrest the.  waste  and,   thus    stop  the    disease.

Dr.  Williams' -Piiik Pills are the  best    tonic    and   .strength'-   builder'  known   to   medical  science.    The* record of this medicine speaks for itseif  and   proves  conclusively that    taken  when the  symptoms *of consumption  'develop    they   build -\ip,     strengthen  and     invigorate   the   patient    to     a  point   where   disease   disappears.    In  proof of this take the case of Ildege  St.  George,  of St. Jerome,   Que.,who  says :���������  "About a year ago I became greatly run down. I lost color, suffered  constantly from headaches, and^pains  in the sides ; my appetite left me,  and I became very weak. Then I  was attacked by a cough, and was  told that I was in consumption. The  doctor ordered me to the Laurentian  jMountains, in * the hope that the  change of air would benefit me. ,.I  remained there for some time, but  did not improve, and returned home  feeling that I had not much longer  to live. I then decided to use Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. After using  several boxes my appetite began to  return, and this seemed to mark the  change which brought about my recovery, for with the improved appetite came gradual but surely increasing strength. I continued the use of  the pills, and daily felt the weakness  disappear, until finally 3 was again  enjoying good health, and now, as  those who know mo can see, I show  no trace of tho illness I passed  through. I believe ��������� Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills ��������� saved my life, and I hope  my statement'! will induce -similar  sufferers to try them."    .   y  These pills are also'a certain   cure  for the after effects of la grippe and  pneumonia,,   which  frequently  develops into  consumption.  Through their  blood-renewing,   strengtnening  qualities they also    cure   anaemia,    heart  troubles,     neuralgia,        rheumatism,  stomach   troubles,    kidney and liver  ailments  and    the  functional    weaknesses    that make- the -lives    of    so  ���������many   women a source  of    constant  misery.
