(SIGNKD)  NAPIER & PARTRIDGE THE NEWS, CUMBERLAMD, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  G  (Continued from last week.)  i  CHAPTER XI.  ERALD BROWER, who was a  baby wben I eaine.to live at  Faraway and was now eleven, had caught a cold in seed  time, and he bad never quite recovered.  His coughing had begun to keep him  awake, and one night it brought alarm  to the whole household. Elizabeth  Brower was up early in the morning  and called Uncle Eb, who went away  for tlie doctor as soon as light came.  We ate-'our breakfast in silence. Father and mother and Grandma Bis-  nette spoko only in low tones, and  somehow the anxiety in their faces  went to my hear*}. Uncle Eb returned  about 8 o'clock and said the doctor was  coming.  Old Dr. Bigsby was a very* great  man in that country. Other physicians called him far and wide for consultation. I had always regarded him  with a kind of awe intensified by the  aroma of his drugs and the gleam of  his lancet. Once I had been his patient, and then I had trembled at his  approach. When be took my little  wrist in his big hand I remember with  what reluctance I stuck out my quivering tongue, black, as I feared, with evidences of prevarication,     j  He was a picture for a painter man  as he came that morning erect in his  gig. Who could forget the hoary majesty of his head���������his "stovepipe" tilted back, his white locks flying about  his ears? He had a long nose, a  smooth shaved face and a left eye that  was a trifle turned. His thoughts were  g������ueraIJy_one day behind the calendar.  Today he seemed to~be~li]gest"inf~th������"  affairs of yesterday. He was, therefore, absentmirided to a degree that  made no end of gossip. If he came out  one day with shoe strings flying, in his  remorse the next he would forget his  collar; if one told bim a good joke today he might not seem to hear it, but  tomorrow he would take it up in its  turn and shake with laughter.  I remember how that morning after  noting the symptoms of his patient he  sat a little in silent reflection. He  knew that color ln the cheek, that look  in the e.vo���������he hnd seen so much of it  His legs were crossed and one elbow  thrown carelessly over the back of  his chair. We oil sat looking at him  anxiously. In a moment he began  chewing hard on his quid of tobacco.  Uncle Eb pushed tlie cuspidor a bit  nearer. The doctor expectorated freely and resumed his attitude of reflection. Tho clock ticked loudly; the pa-  tieut sighed; our anxiety Increased.  Undo Eb spoke to father in a low  tone, whereupon the doctor turned suddenly, with a little grunt of Inquiry,  and, seeing ho was not addressed, sank  again into thoughtful repose, 1 had  begun to fear Uio worst whon suddenly  tho baud of tho doctor swept tho bald  peak of benevolence at tlio top of his  bead. Then a smile begun to spread  over his face. It was ns if somo feather of thought had begun to tickle hhu,  In a moment his head was nodding  with In tighter that brought a great  Bftiise of relief to all of un, In a slow,  deliberate) tono ho begun to Hpeak.  "I. was over V Hat Tapper's t'other  day," said he, "Hut was sitting with  mo In tho dooryard. Puriy soon a  young chap camo lu Willi a seytho und  asked If ho might uko tho grisulslun.  Ho was a new hired mini from somewhere near, lie did n't know Hut, iin'  Itat didn't know lilm. Ho Hut o' courso  had t' crack one o' h!n Jokes.  '"May I uso yer gritid8tun'<" aald tho  young feller.  ���������"Dunno,' said Hat. 'I'm only tho  hired man hero, (io an' ask Mis' Tupper.'  "Tho ol' Ituly hnd overheard lilm, an'  ro sho Buys t' the young follor: 'Yes, yo  can uko tho grlmlstun. The hired man  out there'll turn it for ye,'  "Hat seo ho wus trapped, an' so ho  went not under the niu in tree, whoro  tho stun was, an' begun t' turn, Tho  ncytlio wuh dull an' Uio yuuiij.; iciuir  boro on harder *n wu/. rooly decent  for a long time. Uut begun f g'.t very  sober lookln',  "M'n't vo 'Imiif done.' H.'tld lie.  H,Purty nigh,' said the young (oiler,  bearln' dbwix a leetle harder ail the  tlmo,  ������������������Rat made tho stun go faster. Purty | ,*Hi*on* hvSmv l  ���������oon lio asked ng'ln, 'Ain't yo done yltr  ���������������������������Purty iilu'li!' says tlio other, feellu'  o' the edge.  ��������������� Tin done,' snid Hat, an' he let go o'  tho bundle, 'I dunn.-i M*mit the gi-ytlto,  but I'm a good deal sharper *it I wu*.'  "���������You're the hired man here, ain't  y*Y Raid the young feller.  ���������"No, I ain't.' auld Hut, "D ruther  own vp V belli' a liar than tura that  lluo auuthtr Uiluult'"  As soon as he was fairly started with  this droll narrative the strain of the  situation was relieved. We were all  laughing as much at his deliberate way  of narration as at the story itself.  Suddenly he turned to Elizabeth  Brower and said very sooerly, "Will  you bring me some water in a glass?"  Then he opened his chest of medicine,  made some powders and told us how  to give them.  "In a few days I would take him into  the big woods for awhile," he said,  "See how it agrees witb him."  Thx-m he gathered up his things, and  mother went with him to the gig.  Humor was one of the specifics of  Dr. Bigsby. He was always a poor  man. He had a way of lumping his  bills, at about so much, in settlement  and probably never kept books. A side  of pork paid for many a long journey.  He came to bis death riding over the  hills one bitter day not long after the  time of which I write to reach a patient.  The haying over, we made ready for  our trip into the woods. Uncle Eb and  Tip Taylor, who knew the forest, and  myself were to go with Gerald to Blueberry lake. We loaded our wagon witb  j provisions one evening and made ready  \ to be off at the break of day.  I remember how hopefully we started  that morning, with Elizabeth Brower  and Hope waving their" handkerchiefs  on the porch and David hear them  ��������� whittling. They had told us what to  do and what not to do over and over  again. I sat with Gerald on blankets  that were spread over a thick mat of  hay. The morning air was sweet with  l-he_Qdoji^LneBLhayi_and the music of  the bobolink. Uncle Eb and Tip Tsxy^  lor sang merrily as we rode over tbe  hills.  When we entered the shade of the  big forest Uncle Eb got out his rifle  and loaded it. He sat a long time  whispering and looking eagerly for  game to right and left. He was still a  boy. One could see evidences of age  only in his white hair and beard and  wrinkled brow. He retained the little  tufts in front of his ears, and lately had  grown a silver crescent of thin and  silky hair that circled his throat under  a bare chin. Young as I was, I had no  keener relish for a holiday than he.  At noon we halted beside a brook and  unhitched our horses. Then we caught  some fish, built a tire and cooked them  and browed our tea. At sunset wo  halted at Tuley pond, looking along its  reedy margin, under purple tamaracks,  for doer. There was a great silence  here in the deep of the woods, and Tip  Taylor's ax, while ho peeled the bark  for our camp, seemed to till tho wilderness with echoes. It was after dark  whon tho shanty was covered and we  lay on Its fragrant mow of balsam and  hemlock. Tho great logs that we had  rolled In front of our shanty wore set  afire and shortly supper was cooking.  Gerald had stood thc journey well,  Unclo Eb and ho stayed In, whllo Tip  and I got our jack ready anil went off  In quest of a dugout Ho said Hill Ellsworth had one hid In u thicket on tho  south sido of Tuloy. Wo found it after  an hour's fmnip nonr by, It nooilwl n  little repairing, but wo soon mado It  wator worthy and then took our scats,  ho In tho stern, with tlio puddle, and 1  In tho tinw with the gun, Slowly nnd  silently we clove a way through the  star sown shadows. II; was llko the  hushed and mystic movement of a  dream. Wo m-onied tn be above ,tho  deep of heaven, tho starts below us. Th-P  shadow of the forest ln the still water  hoked llko the wall of somo mighty  castlo with lowers and. battlements and  myriads of windows lighted for a fete.  Once the groan of a night hawk fell  out of tho upper nlr with u Bound liko  that of a Htonn striking lu water. 1  thought llttlo of ihe doer Tip was after,  His only aim In life wuh the one ho got  with a gun barrel. | bad forgot ton till  but the beauty of llie hccuc Suddenly  Tin rnn������od tne bv liivlmr Ills hand to tho  gunwale ami m-ntiy shaking tlio dugout, ln Uiu tin i'u iii.sii'-.ico abend ot u.-> i  could hoar the ('aim tinkio of dripping  water.

After the mar of iho -,'un had got away  in tho distant ibulior Tip mentioned ������  pluco iil-iuiii'i-d i>i  nil iiu'ii, turned und  puddled for tlie landing.  'Totild 'it' killi'ii   tin wuh a i-Uili," xilEd  bo, Hiilrijciiiig, "linens lie must 'a' looked pwrly lull, didn't he7"  "Why7" I uttlit'd.  ���������'Cos yo alined into the sky," snid be.

"IdJ haii'V't'uiiji'i't n.-aUU-u" ������������wd X\  "'Minds me of Btll Barber," lie said,  in a half whisper as he worked his paddle, chuckling with amusement  "How's that?" I asked.  "Nothin' safe but the thing he shoots  at," "said he. "Terrible bad shot. Kills  a cow every time he goes huntin'."  Uncle Eb was stirring the fire when  we came whispering into camp, and  Gerald lay asleep under the blankets.  "Willie couldn't hit the broadside of  a barn," said Tip. "He don't take to it  nat'ral."  "Killin' an' book learnin* don't often  go together," said Uncle Eb.  I turned in by the side of Gerald, and  Uncle Eb went off with Tip for another  trip in the dugout. The night was  chilly, but the lire flooded our shanty  with its warm glow. What with the  light and the boughs under us and the  strangeness of the black forest, we got  little sleep. I heard the gun roar late  in the night, and when I woke again  Uncle Eb and Tip Taylor were standing over the fire in the chilly gray of  the morning. A dead deer hung on the  limb of a tree near by. They began  dressing it, while Gerald and I went to  the spring for water, peeled potatoes  and got the pots boiling. After a  hearty breakfast we packed up and  were soon on the road again, reaching  Blueberry lake before noon. There we  hired a boat of the lonely keeper of the  reservoir, found au abandoned camp  with an excellent bark shanty and  made ourselves at home.  That evening in camp was one to be  remembered. Ab Thomas, the guide  who tended the reservoirs, came over  and sat beside our fire until bedtime.  He had spent years in the wilderness,  going out for nothing less important  than an annual spree at circus time.  He eyed us over each in turn, as if he  thought us all very rare aud interesting.  "Many bears here?" Uncle Eb inquired.  "More plenty 'n human bein's," he  answered, puffing lazily at his pipe  with a dead calm in bis voice and manner that I have never seen equaled  except in a tropic sea.  "See 'em often?" I asked.  He emptied his pipe, striking it on  his palm until the bowl rang, without  answering. Then he blew into the,  stem with great violence.  . "Three or four 'n a summer mebbe,"  -he^saidV.at-LejigllL______,  "Ever git sassy?" Uncle Eb asked.  He whipped a coal out of the ashes  then and lifted it in his fingers to the  bowl of his pipe.  "Never real sassy," he said between  vigorous, puffs. "One stole a ham off  my pyazz las' summer. Al Fifield  brought 't in fer me one day���������smelt  good too!

The census of 1906 is limited to the  two subjects of population and agriculture. In the schedule of population a record will be made by families  of every living person by name, on  the day in June to be fixed by the  goveruor-general-in-council for tho  taking of the census, and no one arriving in the provinces, and no child  born in them after that day is to be  entered or counted in the, schedule.  In addition to the name of each person, the record will embrace his or  her relation to the head of the family,  sex, conjugal condition, age, country  or place of birth, year of immigration  to Canada if not born in the country,  postoffice address, and location by section and township if in rural parts, or  'l53TTTTmlJeT~������Ild"sti'OT^  town.  There will also be taken on this  schedule a record of live stock in the  provinces, under the heads of horses  of all ages, .-.milch cows, other horned  or neat cattle of all ages, sheep and  lambs of all ages, and hogs and pigs of  all ages. This schedule will suffice  generally for the enumeration of  cities, towns and organized villages,  and will bo employed also for tho'country districts. But if there are agricultural areas of five acres and over  within corporation "limits they will bo  enumerated in tlio second schedule.  Tlio second schedule relates to' field  crops and farm and ranch lands, Tho  namo of each owner or occupier of a  farm will bo entered on. it, and, if an  immigrant., an entry will bo mado to  show his occupation before arrival in  Canada. The field crops of 15105 will  be reported to show for each farm the  acres in all kinds of crops, and for  the principal crops their acrongo and  product. Fall or winter wheat will bo  classed to show the acres and busliels  on summer fallowed land and other  land, and outs, bnrloy, flax, potatoes,  and other roots will bo reported to  show tho acres and bushels of each  kind of crop. Sugiir beets, forago  crops, and sown or cultivated hay, will  bo reported to show acres and tons,  and nntivo or prairie hay to show tons  only. Tho field crops of 11)00 will ho  reported in liko iniinm-r, but for acres  of ench kind only, tlio products of  which will bo n.seertiiinod later in tho  year, computed from yields obtained  from farmers by correspondence.

Editor and Proprietor of the Herald,  Oxbow, Saskatchewan,  This sei'ies of personal sketches of  well-known Western editors establishes  that in tho prairie portion of Canada,  as everywhere else throughout the  American continent, the proprietor  of the typical country paper is almost  invariably a printer. His graduation  into journalism was by way0 of "the  case." Should he ever attain to the  dignity of armorial bearings, the  "stick" rau.er than pencil or pad,  would be his eraldic insignia. The  metropolitan newspaper man almost  always got into ��������� ineV profession by  means of the notebook and pencil. He  started out as "cub reporter/' after  contributing occasionally as a "space  man," eand did regular assignments  at the firo halls, the police Station,  -and-making_the~daily_roiinds-o������Jiotels,  to keep in touch with the travelling  public by means-oi .ne hotel registers.  His business," primarily, was that of a  news gatherer and news writer. Any  knowledgo of the mechanical depart-'  meats of newspaper production was  incidental and secondary. But with  tho representative country editor and  publisher "mechanical knowledgo pre-  coded, generally by many years,, any  practice in nowspapo'' writing.

A great many have splendid ability in certain lines, good education, fine training, and yet have  somo deficiency in their mako-up  which cripples the wholo lifo and  dwarfs tho results of their utmost industry. Many of us have some little,  contemptible weakness which offsets  our strong qualities and ruins their  effectiveness,  What a p'ity to see a giant in possibility tied down by some little, contemptible weakness whicli cripples  what might have been a magnificent  career! If parent or teacher would;  only point out to a child a weakness  which, perhaps, will be fatal, if not  remedied, and teach it lioiv' to guard  against it, how to strengthen tho defective quality by mental exercise,  what a tremendous helj) it would give  to the child, perhaps preserving it  from failure.  > It is pitiable to see a young man  bowing to what he calls fate, which  he thinks has been fixed by the contour of his brain or in his hereditary  tendencies. Why should we drag our  weaknesses through, life, when a little  common sense, a little right thinking  in fixing new habits of thought would  soon remedy them?  ��������� If you are conscious of a mental  weakness, a deficient faculty, using a  little concentration, thinking in the  opposite direction, and dwelling upon  the perfect faculties or qualities yoij  desire, would "soon put you1 in a normal condition'.

These and other  documents, whose existence and depositories he has ascertained, will be  of great value in the study of certain  phases of the history of Canada before the conquest.

On an  appointed day the chiefs of Bonny  and Opobo, who have some sort of  control over the Andoni tribe were  called together and informed by the  British Resident that these nefarious  practices must be put a stop to.  After much hesitation the principal  chief led the way to the centre of the  village, where a ghastly sight presented itself. The juju house was literally covered with human skulls,  even the gable ends and verandah  "lieWiirg~these-horr-ible-tropliiea.__.Som6  were quite fresh clearly showing tliat  'human sacrifices were still practised.  In all, upwards of two thousand were  counted.

Often it is not nearly so  good, but that is the fault of  the bread-maker.  Without good flour, good  bread is impossible, no matter  how skilfully it is handled.  Now, good bread must  be good to eat, as well as  good   to   see   or   to   taste.  Good-to-eat bread  is.  bread  that nourishes.  In the matter of nutriment,  Royal Household Flour  is supreme. It represents the  best that is in the wheat,  ground to a snowy whiteness  and purified by electricity.  It produces bread that is  light, easy to digest and best  or all���������-nutritious.

I    Wedding    :  By   RITA   KELLEY  Copyright, 1805, by E. C, Parcella  I  t  e  e  e  eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee  Samantha Sanders had always wanted a cuckoo clock.  The sandwich man half a block  ahead announced them for sale for  f 1.98-"flne cuckoo clocks, best made."  She was racing after him as fast as  her prim New England dignity would  allow. She upset a child with an all  day sucker in its mouth and left it  acreamjlng on the walk. It hurt her  conscience terribly, but If for one moment she lost sight of the sign he  might turn into a side street, and she  wouldn't know where to get the clock.  Samantha Sanders was the thrifty,  unromantlc Janitress of a bachelor  apartment building. Her father and  mother had died when she was fifteen  and left her without a penny and with  an overweening desire to possess a  clock with a little bird that popped  out of a little door every hour, along  with more domestic ambition.  Samantha Sanders never had cared  for any one person so much as she had  for making a home. Hiram Shell had  asked her to*marry him, but her thrifty  soul told her she would be happier  f  f  "hhumT shu obibd. "hibam shell!"  making a comfortable living for herself than eking out a bare existence  with such a man. Hiram was all right,  only he nover stuck to any one thing  long enough and his inventions never  seemed to be the things people wanted,  Now she was nlmost up to tbe big  red and white sign. Never before had  she felt free to Indulge her pet extravagance, but now with a steady, tidy income and good clothes in plenty it did  ���������com that Providence had put that  sandwich man right thero ahead of hor.  Breathless and excited, she rushed  past the man to get a front view of the  clock, Ob, joy! There was the long  hoped for littlo face and the cuckoo  half emerging from his arch as though  tho clock had stopped just as bo started to announce the hour.  Samantha clapped hor hands In an  ���������cstasy of rapture.  ������������������Ohl" sho cried. "Can I got one  down on Thlrtoouth stroot now?"  For tho first tlmo sho turned hor oyes  from the sign to tho man whoso way  ���������bo bad blocked. All the light of joy  faded from hor faco und left It ushon.  "Hiram I" sho cried.   "Hiram SlioIM"  "Yes, Samanthy," bo said, meek as  ever, looking nt tlio trim little woman  boforo him and pulling surreptitiously  at his worn and soilod vost.  The pallor of her faco chnngod to a  flush of anger nnd rosoutmont as sho  looked at the disheveled old man.  "Hlrnra Shell," sho said forcibly,  "what you doin' trampln' tho streets  like this? Shiftless and good for nothin', same ns you always wns!"  "I don't know, Snraantby. I never  ���������flltl a. -,;;; io 'mount to ������tm"M>b>i������" Tho  cuckoo dock f-wnyotl pornmisly nonr a  barber pole, byt Snmnntha did uot notice. Sho wall looking at tbe man's  lantern jawed haggard visage and  thinking hard.  "ii;k*u, SLc!!," she e *rir"d, "yon  navon't had enough to eat You can't  koop yonr knees stilt."  He smiled weakly. "Well, It do be  bard off an' on to got a plenty, 'specially when it takes quito a bit for  wire. My new patent clothes wringer,  Samanthy"--  "Hiram Shell, you go right straight  down to Thirteenth stroot nnd tell those  clock people you haven't got sense  enough to pound snnd In a rat hole!"  Bat even as she spoke her eyes were  moist "And, niram, yon bring a clock  BO to mr bouse.   I'm going home now  to get supper ready." She counted out  $2.03 (5 cents for car fare), gave him  her address and told him vigorously  to hurry up before be forgot what he  was to do. She left him standing stupefied in the middle of the walk gazing  after her with meek if hungry eyes.  "She be just the same as ever," he  whispered to himself. "She'd 'a' made  me a good wife, Samanthy would."  Samantha Sanders was bustling feverishly about her rooms at the New  Rochclle apartments. True to her provident New England instincts, she had  a plentiful, supply .of cake, pie, applo  Gutter and hakpd beans on hand. She  had ordered recklessly at the greengrocer's on her way home, and the table was beginning to look like a feast  of plenty.  Poor old Hiram! She could not get  the image of his pitiable figure out of  her mind. Even the prospect of the  new clock could not dispel the feeling  of utter heartsickness. Hiram Shell,  whose father had been justice of the  peace, tramping the streets as a sandwich man!  There was a dull aching at her heart  that was incomprehensible to her until  just as she shoved the brown bread  into tho oven to warm. She stiffened  up witn something like a groan and  clapped her hands to her head,  "I'd ought to 'a' married Hiram  Shell," she cried, with the bitterness of  delayed realization. "I'd ought to 'a'  married him! No one -ever believed in  him. Just because he didn't get out  and work like the others they said he  was crazy! Geniuses ain't like anybody else, and if anybody had ever encouraged him and helped him along he  might have struck somethin" that people wanted. And here I've been comfortable, and him trampin' the streets!"  Hiram was late in arriving. She  wondered indulgently whether he had  gone off to buy wire with that money  instead of getting the clock. Strangely enough, she did not care much. The  thought was tormenting her that she  who always had put duty foremost had  after all failed in the greatest crisis of  her life. Women were intended to  make men stronger, to* bring out the  best in the men they loved, and she-  He came, more haggard and all but  tottering, with two packages under his  arm. She took them from him, tumbled them helter skelter on the sofa  and drew up an armchair for him close  "to"tBe~fablrlat^  "Now, Hiram," she said, "eat!"  He looked at her wildly for a moment, trying to get his breath. "The  package," he said. "Is it all right?"  "The clock? Of course. Go on an'  eat now." She passed him the bowl  of savory pork and beans.  He pushed back from the table, peering about. >  "Hiram Shell, if you don't stop act-  In' the fool and set to eatiu' I'll throw  out the cuckoo clock and be done with  it!"  "No, Samanthy, 'tain't the clock; it's  that new patent clothes wringer I been  making. Thought you might like it to  'wash your clothes."  Samantha collapsed into a chair,  "Hiram Shell, I haven't done my  wash for five years. It goes to the  laundry,"  "Well, now, ain't that nice!" Ho  pushed back the apple' butter she handed bim. Ho had not touched a bite,  though his plate was piled high with  good things. Samantha saw his face  bndgono white.  "I guess I'd better bo moving on.  The doctor at the dispensary he said  I'm ailln' some." Ho clutched at his  heart. "It's queer, right in bore."  Samantha pushed him back into the  chair and ran for the brandy.  "Dld���������you call tho ambulance?" he  asked whon ho opened his oyes again.  "No, I didn't, Illnun Shell. You don't  need no ambulance, All you need Is a  good squaro meal and tho parson.  Wo're going to get man-led, Illrnm."  Ho lookod ut hor, with tears streaming down bis ohooUs.  "Woll, now," ho said, "Samanthy,  ain't that nice!"  <lueor.

A barn in a low yard where the mud  is always deep is a mighty poor plac  to keep cows, but unfortunately this is  the case.with too many of our dairy  barns, says P. D. South worth in Northwestern Agriculturist. The germs of  disease are very fond of low, wet, uu-  draiued phves, and they thrive in such.  If your barn is located in a place of  this description your cattle are therefore exposed to disease, and if they  are in any way weakened by'poor care  or other bad conditions they become  very susceptible to tuberculosis. Keep  the barn and yard drained and you will  lessen the death rate from that disease.  As regards ventilation and temperature, there are two very common extremes. Jones, on one side of the road,  keeps his barn shut up tight like a. box,  so that there is not a bit of fresh air  circulating through the stalls and the  barn is stuffy and unhealthy from the  lack of oxygen. Smith, on the other  side of the road, has a wicker basket,  as it were,-for. a cow bam. All night  long the doors slam to and fro, and iu  the breath of the rushing, freezing  wind the cows shiver and use up the  feed in trying to keep warm that should  be turned into milk, Then Smith wonders why his cows don't pay. Try to  keep the temperature somewhere between 40 and 50 degrees. Don't let  the cows stand in a draft. Have  hinges on the lower edge of one or two  of the small windows, so that they will  open inward. Open them three or ������our  inches. This will give the incoming air  a direction toward the ceiling and thus  prevent a direct draft on the jows. It  will not take long to fix a window or  two that way, and it will not cost  much.  Perhaps >nes keeps his cows in all  day and gives them no exercise. He  wonders why they get off feed so easily  and why the calves are so weak. Smith  lets his cows run out all afternoon and  after they have all the exercise that is  necessary lets them stand till feeding  time out in the cold.  The food that should be used for furnishing energy for making milk is used  up in keeping the shivering cows from  freezing to deaths It does not pay to  "treat'th'e'old^eo^that-wayr-Turn-bei*-  out during the best part of the day  long enough to walk around a bit and  get a chew from tbe straw pile and a  drink of water with tlie chill off it. It  takes more money out of your creamery dividends in a year to let her beat  up her water after she drinks it than  it would to buy directly a good common sense tank heater. Don't let her  out in damp, snowy weather either or  expose her to that sharp, biting wind  that comes iu our cold spells.  \  convincing proof tliat tne rarm *enu tn  this butter business has a great deal U *  do with the final quality and the final  price received for the butter.  Watering Cow������.  Cows should have all the water the)  will drink. How often to offer then  water will depend somewhat upon theiH^  habits. Many cows will not drink b������  once a day, but we think it better tt  train them to divide the amount, J  good practice is to give them oppor  tunity to drink just before the usua  time for letting them out for the dailj  airing and again shortly before thi  evening feeling.        "No Fliea.on Him."  "No flies ou him," given as an Americanism, is found in "DOn Quixote,"  where it occurs as one of the sayings  of Sancho Panza.

English is said to be one of the most  difficult languages in the world for a  foreigner to learn. The verbs and prepositions are particularly puzzling.

"I begin to understand your language better," said my  friend M. de L. to me, "but your verbs  trouble me still. You mix them up so  with prepositions. I saw your friend  Mrs. S. just now.

Tbo advice ls good. On many farms  tho cost and caro of the young stock are  scarcely noted, and tho cows so raised  may be better than can be bought at  auy price within reach of tho owner.

No it -lould certainly not be tight lo "throw -.ho town  wide open", it \v9uld bo decidely  wrong, By th bye, when wuh the  door cloned ?  in   your   issue   of   last  week I noii-e a letter   from   Rate-  payer complaining about  the City  employ ing a c nsab'.e' at   $900.00  per \ear. and the   School   Trustees  raising the Higli behooi fees to   $2  per moii'h,    Xon Mr   Editor   this  Oily needs a p. lioeman and I think  we are getting off pretty che.ip con-  eidering the amount  of   work   Mr  Batiks doc* on ilm streets t-idewalke  etc, and I dont iliiuk Mr Ra*e payer's remark about ihe City  puds!!-*  ing the children   for   ihe 'sake* ->f  keeping up idle man   *���������. alking   . hu  Btrueti reflects very   much   iu   his  cre'dit lecaur-e Mr Banks is iika Ctie  rest of us if you taki-. away bis,work  ���������his family" will r.ot have a   chance  to attend High 8choy/ as   he   may  not get a job which he could afford  to pay the exorbitant fee of $2   Mr  Rati payer talks   about   now   Mr  Ediior if the School Trustees would  raise the High bchool fees to $4 00  dont you think tjic children   would ,  be getting a good  cheap   education  and then the City   Council   wuuid,  not have to retort   lo   taxing   men  who make their living by the sweat  of their brow,    I   t-.hi.nk   the   City  Council should employ "Citizen" to  advise1    (hem   how   to   raise   the  amount of mon��������� y required to   meet  this expense or else do as he advised  the Council todo tako a trip to   the  "tall limbers like the,China man did  and hn may come   pack   like   him  clearer minded.   Of course I   dont  think the City   needs   a   salaried  rmigis!rate,.aiid I think that if   the  ��������� present.Council   would   do   as   ex  M lyor.tinort did, pay trie ma gist rate  for whui he does, so much for every;  case, it would be better   instead   of  pi'ying $25.00 per-moir.ii.
