The Budget proved certainly a  most cheering valentine for Miss  British Columbia. The Minister of  Finance announced that the liquid as-  _?5���������������������������_.������������������L k'ie_ Province would be sufficient within thc year to wipe out the i  entire funded debt, which ut the close  of the last fiscal year stood at $8,-  606,800, having decreased $238,867  from the last previous twelvemonth  period. At the same time, as provision is made by sinking fund  for thc redemption of the debt in due  course, the Minister does not consider it good financial policy to buy  back outstanding debentures, as an  attempt to do so on the open market  would send these securities above par  and the Province would be loser by  the transaction.

At the same time we cannot  but conclude that the fact of our entering into closer commercial relations with the United States will not  help this imperial program, which  animates and inspires some of the  greatest men of the Homeland and  the Imperial overseas possessions.  This bargain certainly will not  strengthen them, but we have always  the   satisfaction   of    knowing ' that,  current year cannot be estimated, but  the Minister expects it will be quite  as large as last year's, the Government having at the present time upon  deposit in the various chartered  banks and bearing interest, no less  than $7,500,000.  Hon. Mr. Ellison places the value  of the productions of the representative industries of the Province during  the past year at $100,742,000 divided  roughly as follows: Manufactures,  $35,000,000; mining,    $26,183,505; tim-  development of their holdings (although this was the practice in New  Zealand, and was there working out  well) but to adopt some such policy  as that .prevailing in Germany,  France and other progressive countries. In New Zealand there was  but a minimum of default' on the  state loans to farmers; and it was  notable that no other industry was  in the same position as agriculture  in this province, in that all other  industries enjoyed the advantage -of  operating under the credit system.  6.   The conditions affecting the labor market and   an inquiry into the  problems presented. In this connection the necessity of additional labor  for thc harvesting of the fruit crop  was especially emphasized. It was  estimated that the fruit trees now  planted in British Columbia would  demand at least 12,000 men as pickers  and packers when the trees come to  full bearing, and one or two of the  largest sawmills in the country  would be required to supply the  boxes for the product of the country.  If ample money were available for the  farmers on the long-term payment  plan, it would in a large degree solve  this farm labor question, and in this  connection the fact, should never be  lost sight of that the small farmer  was the hope of thc country.  7. The effect of reciprocity on the  fruit and other agricultural products  of the province.  8. Immigration, and 'how best to  promote it with a view to settling up  the lands, and the' countries from  which    the..   supply    of    immigrants  should be drawn.  9. An inquiry into thc desirability  of employing compauies to undertake  the settlement of lands under conditions imposed by the Government,and  the nature of such conditions.  10. Agricultural education in  schools, and the location of experimental stations, and rural education  generally.  11. An inquiry into the quantity  of land close to transportation facilities that could be made available for  cultivation by clearing of trees and  stumps and by irrigation.  Mr. Lucas believed that if such a  commission were appointed, and a  systematic investigation of these  questions brought about, information  would be obtained which would be of  the greatest use to the Department in  regard to the direction of settlement;  and if such a commission could solve  only one or two or three of these  problems, it would be of the greatest  advantage to the future, of B. C. .'ENDERBY. PRESS AND WALKER'S ' WEEKLY;  T  OOCTORS CONDEMN  OILY-LINIMENTS  The Public are Warned to be Careful  of These Strong-Smelling, Oily Liniments Containing Harmful Acids,  Ammonia, ^tc.  Many people have clung to the old-  fashioned idea that a thick, greasy liniment is the best kind. Doctors say not  ���������������������������and they know.  Recently si "number of those white,  oily liniments were'analyzed,-ami they  were found to contain an enormously  high ��������������������������� percentage of harmful .'acids, and  such irritating chemicals' as ammonia,  etc. For tlie moment they may cause'  a warm sensation when first applied,  but their continued use never euros  rheumatism, and only deteriorates tlio  ekiu, sets up inflammation and causes  endless trouble.  When a doctor warns you to quit  using a white, oily liniment���������������������������do so, lie  knows that a thick liniment can t penetrate, can't sink through the pores and  reach the seat of the pain.  When asked his opinion a few days  ago, Dr. Eoberts stated that he considered a "strong, ponetrating, pain-subduing liniment', such as "Nerviline," to  be superior to any of the white ammonia  liniments. In his twenty-five years of  practice he had witnessed cases of rheumatism, sciatica and lumbago that simply would not respond to ordinary treatment���������������������������but Nerviline cured them. Thc  6ame physician also spoke of the great  advantages of keeping a preparation  like Nerviline in the house always, because of cramps, diarrhoea, stomach disorders, earache, toothache, headache and  Buch minor ailments. Nerviline is a  first-class cure. There is scarcely an  ache or a pain, internal or external, that  Nerviline won't cure. In thousands of  homes no other pain-relieving medicine  is used. Fifty years' continued suecess  and. the endorsement of the profession  are proof that Nerviline is the liniment  for the home.  DEPENDING   Counsel   (to   witness  , in   bandages):    "Are   you   married?"  Witness���������������������������"No, I was knocked down  by a cab last week."  THOMAS HOOD was visited shortly  before his death by a clergyman.  ; "My  dear  sir,"Hood  said  to  him, looking at his gloomy countenance,  "l   am   afraid  your religion  does not  agree with you."  FIRELESS   CANDY-MAKING  THE requisites for this work are the  best quality of pulverized sugar,  white blotting-paper, a short dull  knife with a good deal of spring to it,  ono or more shallow saucers, a small  tumbler of water, flavoring extracts,  colorings (such as confectioners use),  and nuts, tangerines, oranges, pineapples, or almost any fruit in season.  In the way of flavorings, peppermint,  wintergrecn, vanilla, essence of Jamaica ginger, cinnamon "and coriander and  earaway seeds are popular favorites.  Where the fresh juices of the fruits are  used, the water will not be found'necessary. ...  Into a saucer "put a small quantity  of', sugar and moisten carefully with  water or fruit-juice, stirring in drop by  drop, until the mixture is of such consistency as to drop easily from the point  of the knife into such shapes as one  may desire on the white blotting-paper,  which absorbs undue moisture.  Nut-meats, candied or preserved cherries, are pressed in or laid on top of  the mixture, while still moist. Chopped nuts or grated cocoanut may be  mixed with the sugar and used as a filling for pitted dates or figs.  RAVELING    INSPECTOR    (cross-  questioning   the   terrified   class):  "And now, boys, who wrote Hamlet?"  Timid Boy: "P-p-please, sir, it wasn't  me."  Squire (after loud ' and prolonged  laughter): "Ha! ha I That's good; and  [ suppose the little beggar had done it  all tho time."  * *    #_*  IIIIE motto of the amateur actor, according to- Seymour Hicks, is that  "it is belter to have had a frost  than never to have played at all."  On this subject he quotes a happy  retort of Sir \V. S. Gilbert's.  "What do you think of our amateur  club?" said an enthusiast.  "I think they are not so much a  club as a bundle of sticks," 8aid the  master c.l repartee.  # *    ������������������  A LITTLE boy was entertaining the  minister the other day until his  mother could complete her toilet.  The minister, to make congenial conversation, enquired:  "Have you a dog!"  "Yes, sir; a dachshund," responded  the lad.  ' "Where is he?" questioned the dominie, knowing the way to a boy's heart.  "Father sends him away for the winter. He says it takes him so long to  go in aud -out the door he cools the  whole house off."  'pHERE was no love lost between Eu-  J������������������ fus and his teacher. Rufus thought  the teacher was a severe and occasionally unjust person, who had never  known what it was to be young and  full of fun, while the teacher considered the little darky both stupid and  mischievous.  "You are not attending to what I  say, Rufus," said the teacher one day  in the midst of an address to her class.  " Yes, teacher, truly 1 is," said Rufus, with the reversion to the speech  he had learned at home which often accompanied great earnestness  "You should never say 'I1U]  mauded the teacher. .

On  the road one day he tried to measure  the intelligence of a waiter at a  '' beef-and-ery.''    v  "Let me'have a plate of intoxicated  bull," he said.  It took the waiter just throe-quarters  of a minute to tumble, then he yelled  into the kitchen:  "Plate of beef stew!"

If one were to- canvas the thousands who attend the meetings of the  Ontario Jockey Club at Woodbine Park  it is doubtful if one in fifty could be  found who would say that the thoroughbred is of any account in harness, but  he is, nevertheless, aud largo numbers  are used daily throughout the province  doing heavy work'. For instance, at  Mrs. Livingstone's -Pontine stock farm,  located a few miles east of Cobourg.  thoroughbred mares are used to do the  harvesting and light plowing with excellent results, and these mar.es have already produced winners on the turf, aud  are expected to produce King's Plate  winners.  ._P������������������^n_J5j'ho__Tqwnship__o'f East Whitby, on the farm of=T,1rank~~Thompsoii.  which is located aboiit six miles north-  cast of the town of Oshawa, are several  thoroughbred geldings, two of which at  least have helped in no small way to  make turf history. They are the well-  known steeplechasers Ben Crockett and  Spencer Rcif'f, that were stake winners  in their time, having each won thousands of dollars in stakes and purses.  With this pair, Mr. Thompson did all  the i'alLplowing this ycar,_tijling oyer  .sisry acres, and he says that he could  not wish for a hotter pair of workers.  Iu his opinion, the noted pair can out-  i-'pced and outstay the heavier 'irueds,  which means that they do more work  on the farm. In addilion to being useful on the plow, seeder, binder, etc.,  Spencer I'eilV, or "Jim," as he is called, is kind in harness and can draw a  democrat with half a ton load to town  in short order, and he also performs thc  sanctimonious duty of hauling the family to church each Sunday. What Spencer Beiff and Ben Crockett do for Mr.  Thompson is also done by manv others  of their breed in different sections.  Not only is tho thoroughbred useful  as a work horse, but as a progenitor  of half-breds he is most beneficial to  the country.  During the past two years the National Bureau of Breeding has distributed a large number of thoroughbred  stallions throughout the Dominion for  the purpose of getting half-bred horses  suitable for cavalry and military purposes.

According to a well-known horseman,  one who has probably had more experience with thoroughbreds and standard-  breds than any other man in Canada,  the only real game horse is the thoroughbred. Whether he is correct in his  views is a "matter of opinion. For myself, I have seen some trotters and some  pacers, as well, that impressed ine as  being game enough for all necessary  purposes.'

He is the- first and only Canadian owned horse that ever won such an important stake on the American turf, and his  victory went a long way toward bringing Canada prominently beforo the  horse world.  Martimas was foaled in 3896, and is  therefore fourteen years old. ne is a  beautiful chestnut in color, and is a  model in conformation. He is not a big  horse in neight, as he stands but L5.2  hands, but nevertheless he is one of the  made-to-order kind, and he invariably  imparts his excellent qualities to his offspring. In blood lines, he comes from  a winning family on eaeh side of the  house, as his sire, imp.

Besides the Futurity, Martimas won  several other important events as a two-  year-old,-and finished the season with  $41,140 to his credit.  As a three-year-old he won the Canadian Derby' and Nautilus Stake, and  the next year he won the Toronto Cup  and Spencer Handicap.

This lonely old man, who  might have lived in aflluenco but who  chose a peasant's fare, who was fanatically devoted to liberty but lived  ander the despotism of a corrupt bureau-  wucy, who loved his fellow-raen and  yet was contemned by his own class  tend not accepted by the other, who  wished for solitude and was pestered  by sightseers and camera tormentors,  who lived in a world of impracticable  ideals of his own creation and simultaneously in a world, of intolerable .realities imposed upon him by others,  who longed to be a reformer and knew  not how to take the first practical step  toward a real reform, finds the contradictions of his life too great any longer  to be borne, and, like a wounded stag,  .goes away to die in solitude.

But he has not" been*a leader.  In his theory of society,' as "in his theory  of religion, he went ,back to elemental, conditions.. He  endeavored, to  .. promote progress by going back to the  past; to vre-ereate"-society by returning  ���������������������������io nature; to convert'the world to the  method of Jean Jacques Rousseau.. His  -' "������������������3tories  are .not  mere  pieces, of  brain-  work; he is more than a literary artist  -writes with his instincts, his senses,'his  intellect, Ms 'emotions.

And yet, despite his tremendous vital- J  ity, he remains individualistic and idio-J '���������������������������_  ijyneratic; interesting as a, great dram-'  atie author, inconclusive, impracticable,  ineffective as a moral.reformer.  Nevertheless, Count Tolstoi is more  ���������������������������than an interesting personality. He has  ���������������������������also been a real moral foTce.  He has  done  more- than  any  other  writer to make the rest pi thc world  ���������������������������acquainted with Russia.

At the same time, even more,'effectively than Tourguoneff, he haa introduced the different sections of Russian  society to each other. Nowhere in Eur-  >pe, probably nowhere in the world, is  the chasm between noble and peasant  40 broad and deep as in Russia. Nowhere is it so true that half the world  loes not know how the other half lives.  Tolstoi has enabled reading Russia to  enow how illiterate Russia lives. He  uas not only made such knowledge possible, he has made ignorance difficult.  We doubt whether any one man has  lone so much as Tolstoi to create,the  uumauely revolutionary spirit in the  Russian universities or more, to make  possible that political revolution, the  nost manifest though not the most important effect of which is the Duma.  And in thus interpreting Russia to  -,he world and Russia to itself he has  carried a message to Russia the value of  vhieh only the future can reveal. He  has portrayed vice with shocking plainness; but he has not revelled in it. He  has been always a moral reformer even  in those writings which, judged by Anglo-Saxon standards, are immoral. He  has'sometimes familiarized" his readers  with an- experience better left unpor-'  trayed, but he has not attracted them  to it.

Whether the  reader  will regard him as always moral or not  will depend on tho reader's answer to  the  question   whether  the  passions  of  mankind should be bo frankly exploited.  In describing Russia to the world,  Count Tolstoi has also described Russia  to tho Russians. He has put an aston-  iahingly truthful mirror before the Russian reader. In "Anna Karenina" he  has made it possible for Russian noble  aoeiety to see how/ignoble it sometimes  is; in "War and Peace" he has enabled  Russian militarism to see with what  ���������������������������sordid and fatuous cruelty war is generally carried on.. Whether his fatalistic  ���������������������������"Theory of the battlefield is true or not,  his pictures are photographic in their  realism.

We  aro not sure that it may not prove all  the more effective because it is the  message of a doctrinaire. If hiB theories, of life had beoif as practical as his  descriptions - of -life ���������������������������- are -realistic,-the  bureaucracy would probably have silenced him. Nor is it, at all impossible that  his somewhat theatrical assumption of  tho garb and habit of a peasant, which  in Aruorica could not have been taken  seriously, may have added to the effectiveness of his message.  A prophet must speak to his people  iu their own 'dialect and according to  their own fashion. Count Tolstoi is a  Russian speaking to Russians. To forgot that is to forget the elemental fact  in his picturesque career.

HOW RADIUM WAS ISOLATED  THE fact that metallic radium ha������������������  now been extracted from its salt������������������  was briefly announced in the Lit  erary Digest some time ago. We aro no*  able to supply details from an article ii.  Tho Scientific American (New York  October 15). As'is well known, until *  few months. ago what was popularh  called radium was merely some one of  the salts of this substauco, generally tht  Shslohs Cure  quickly stops coughs, euros colds, heals  (be throat and lunds ���������������������������       25 cents.  cury vapor at the temperature of th������������������  iron vessel as determined by the ak  of a thermo-electric couple.  "In view of the very minute quanta  ties of material at the disposal of thi  two experimenters, care had to be take;  to warrant- an absolute purity of tht  hydrogen. As.hydrogen purified accoro  ing" to "the"ordinary process isstill -acted upon by the amalgam and metal, tb-  gas, before entering the apparatus, wa������������������  made to pass through a platinum tub.  heated in tho electric furnace."  The writer describes at seine lengti  the process of distillation, which wa������������������  both delicate nnd tedious, and whicl  was carried forward until the metn  began to give out vapors which woulc  attack the quartz tube. To quote again  "The iron vessels were then foum  to contain a brilliantly white metal  which at about 700 deg. C. would begii  to molt suddenly and which, in th>  oxperimenters' opinion, is practicall;  pure radium, The inetal would adher.  strongly to the iron, being separetar  therefrom with some difficulty.  "Motallic radium is altered ver;  rapidly at the contact with air, bein*  blackened instantaneously, in consf  quencc, it seems, of a nitrogen com  pound being formed. Some metal pai  ticles having been scratched off witl  a small metal tool, one of them, oi  being dropped on white paper was foun<  to produce a dark spot as by combuf  tion. On coming into cantact witi  wator, these metal particles instantanr  busly decomposed, the latter most cnei  getically, dissolving thc greater par  of it, which would seem to show th>  solubility of tho oxid. A blackish rei-  iduo, which doubtless is the nitrogei  compound produced by the reaction o:  the m^tal aud air, would be dissolve*  nearly completely after adding a ver;  small quantity of hydrochloric acir*.  Having boon dissolved practically eon  pletely in the diluted acid, the m.eta  haps the real foundation of the breed  ought to be set down as having been  made in the last quarter of the eigh  teenth century at Kettou and Bramp  ton, in the county of Durham, by the  Messrs. "Charles   and   Robert   Colling.  These   enterprising   brothers,   although  quite young, had tho sagacity to adopt  the original methods of breeding which  Robert  Bakewell,   the   celebrated   im  prover of-Longhorn cattle and Leicestei  sheep had, for some time previous, been  so  successful   in   making  use  of;   aud  their skill in applying his methods, sooe  raised the Shorthorns to a pitch of ex  cellence among British breeds of cattle,  which'the breed has ever since retained.    There are several  famous  strains  of Shorthorns, each known by the name  of its founder, namely,  the  "Booth,"  the "Bates," and the "Cruikshank.'-  The  Booths  derive  their    name    from  Thomas  Booth, who lived  at Killerby  and   Warlaby,   in   Durham,   about   the'  end of the eighteenth century, and from  his two sons, John Booth, of Killerby,  and Richard Booth, of Studley, in York  shire.     The   '.'Bates"    family    derive  their name from Thomas Bates', of Kirk  levihgton, in Yorkshire, whose (improve,  ments were begun about the beginning  of the 'nineteenth century.   Thc "Cruik"  shanks'.' derive their name from Amos  and Anthony Cruikshanks, of Sittyton.  Aberdeenshire,  who  began  their,work  about' 183$.    Shorthorns make good use  of the food given them, "fattening as  they grow," as the phrase is, and are  not- excelled  for .their  early  maturing  qualities.. Probably, of-all cattle,: the}  attain to the heaviest weights.    More  over, when bred for tne purpose," theti  prove very good milkers.',' They are also,  remarkable\for,' the,t ease .with., which'  they  adapt;,themselves  to "changes/oi  climate or food. ., The standard color of  the Shorthorn is red,'white, and roan.  -  The West Highland cattle of Kyloes  are found .in all the Highlands of Scot  land, but in greatest ��������������������������� perfection in the  larger Western Islands. Bred from time  immemorial in the cold, humid climate  and on the coarse pastures of the-bleak  hills and glens of their native ..country,  they have developed great hardiness of  constitution  and the ability' to thrive  and   fatten   on   meagre   fare,   such   as  some of the.other.breeds' would starve  upon.    In symmetry of form, nobleness  of bearing, aud-picturesque beauty, they  are unequalled by any other breed, and  they are so highly prized ,for their ap  pearance that they are often kept in  stead of deer in the parks of noble'mon. j  In color they are generally black, but  sometimes they are of a tawny yellow  color, or. light dun, and*these are the  colors preferred.   Their hair is thin and  shaggy, and their horns are wide and set  well apart.    Their meat is of excellent  quality.    Owing to their capability, of  enduring all sorts of weather with little,  or no artificial protoction, and also to  their staying power as travellers, and  their ability to turn coarse and meagre  fodder-=-into=tho^best=qualitywo������������������=jnoat.  they are becoming favorites with the  ranchmen of our Northwest and West  ern Provinces.

FEBRUARY 23.  1911  A BOLD, PROGRESSIVE POLICY  The future will he what we prepare  to make it. This is as true of the individual as of the Government. It  would appear from the provincial estimates handed clown last week in the  House, by the Hon. Price Ellison,  Minister of Finance, that the indomitable premier of. British Columbia,  the Hon. Richard McBride, believes  fully in this principle, and that he  is determined to make this the banner Province in the Dominion in more  ways than one. The Government, for  the next twelvemonth, will spend  more than one million dollars per  month. It will spend nearly half as  much again as' it takes in. It will  spend all of its revenue, and, in addition, take from its present surplus  a few millions.  The Hon. Richard McBride is the  right man in the rig'ht place. He is  conservative, yet bold; and he is big  enough to see British Columbia as  the future will make it, and he is  bold enough to prepare in advance  for that which' is to come. - In less  capable hands, we should hear fear  expressed at the' Government going  so far beyond its revenue in expenditures, but the press of the Province  seem to be of one mind in the matter, and only words of commendation-  are spoken. The bold, progressive  policy of the Premier and bis ministers inspires confidence, and makes  for the upbuilding of the Province as  a whole, and every individual business enterprise in the Province.  It" speaks   volumes * for British C6-  v  lumbia   that    conditions are such as  to make such a policy,possible.of fulfillment, and for the men who have  brought such conditions about. -  MUST COMPLY WITH LAW  pt^    CD-  ENDERBY   BRICK  THE BEST BRICK IN THE PROVINCE.

Enderby  Printing that Counts  You can have it done reasonably and well at Walker Press  One feature of the Provincial liquor  law which, has    been somewhat of a  dead letter insofar as its enforcement  in the   coast   cities   in concerned, is  that  prohibiting the sale  or gift of  intoxicants of any sort to minors���������������������������a  minor being distinctly and specifically  defined as any   person under the age  of 21. -No one' in   touch with conditions as they are in the cities, can be  unaware that this provincial prohibition is'   seldom   given a thought by  barmen, unless the extreme youth of  the prospective   customer is obvious;  or that many girls under the age of  21 are daily served with liquors in the  -restaurants=and^=^nev.er=a=,question_  raised as to    the age ��������������������������� of the fair applicant for   a    cocktail or a glass of  beer or wine.     It is understood that  steps have quietly been taken of late  to emphasize that the law as enacted  is meant to be obeyed, and carelessness in his dealings in this particular  feature of the law may mean the payment of heavy money penalties by the  thoughtless   licensee, or else the loss  of his   license.       Thc   trade    cannot  deny that    fair   and   ample warning  has been   given,   and   it will be well  for licensees throughout the province  to remember that any sale or gift of  liquor to a minor in British Columbia  is distinctly an infraction of the law  ���������������������������that a minor   is   any person under  the age of 21���������������������������and that the burden of  proof under this act, is always upon  the person accused thereunder.  ing tribe had to get granite stones.  It so happened that one day on soft  ica Stonewall took a running shot,  which "wabbled," and, hitting thc  shot on the edge, a piece was chipped  out of his stone. Of course, no one  was to blame but Stonewall 'himself.  So, as nobody was buying him a new  pair, he had the stone with the piece  out of the side cut down to about  ,half size���������������������������the stones at that time  were flat, regular pancakes, and wide.  After that, whenever Stonewall had  a narrow port to run he would use  his small stone, which was a great  advantage, as it would go through a  hole half the size the regular stone  would require, and saved fnany a  game for him, 'tis said.

RECIPROCITY CONTROVERSY  Montreal, Feb. 20.���������������������������Special" correspondence.���������������������������The reciprocity controversy is now in full swing through  the land. Prom the Atlantic to the  Pacific is it the chief topic of discussion, not only to the north but to  the south of the international border,  arid the question has even invaded  the legislative halls of Great Britain.  No doubt the storm will continue to  rage around this bone of contention  for some weeks yet, and not until the  matter is decided by the Canadian  Parliament and the American Congress one way or the other will it  let up. Deputations are heading for  Ottawa to oppose the agreement  while those who agree are very little  heard from.  One of the weightiest pronouncements against the agreement was  made by the Montreal Board of Trade  ���������������������������an organization which -generally  gives the cue to similar bodies, at  least in Eastern Canada. Yet this  pronouncement iwas by no means  unanimous. While - Montreal is the  king pin - of the protected interests  and shouts loudest when vested, interests are in- danger, there are yet  many able men who do not see. eye to  eye with their business brethren and  do not hesitate to say so.

HOW TO MAKE A PORT  Anyone interested in curling will he  pleased to hear how one Stonewall  Jackson, a braw Scot, of Orillia  town away back in '73, used to make  a narrow port. In connection with  the importation of the first curling  (granite) stones into the town of  Orillia, back in 1873, a writer in the  Canadian Courier tells a rather good  story. Stonewall Jackson was the  proud possessor of the first pair of  granite stones. Up to this time the  old-fashioned wooden stones were in  use. Stonewall' Jackson used his  granite stones against the wooden  blocks, and the blocks were knocked  all over the ice.

Mr. McQuarrie reports a very interesting meeting, and the best of  feeling prevailing throughout the  province in relation to the dairy  business generally.  Considerable discussion took place  upon the suggestion of dividing up  the dairy farm competition,, and it  was decided that the division be made  as follows: Small dairies, those having five to fifteen cows milking; large  ^dairies, all over fifteen milking. This  division to stand for the Association  year 1911, and that a smaller cup be  given with medals to the small  dairies.  It was decided that the time of entrance for both of the competitions  be extended to May 1st, 1911.  Discussion then followed as to the  number of times the dairies should  be judged. The great expense of doing this work in this province was  considered. In view of this it was  decided that there be but two inspections each year, one in summer,  and one in winter;, summer to'1 mean  from May 15th to .July 1st, and winter to mean from November 15th ��������������������������� to  December 31st.  Mr. P. Bishop, Mr. A. H. Menzies,  Mr. W. E. Buckingnam and the secretary of the Association, were named  as judges to make the inspections,  and the matter of when these inspections shall take place was left at the  option of the judges.  General discussion then followed as  to methods' of increasing the membership. It was pointed out by' the  Deputy Minister.that the Association  .was not as strong .'as it^sbiould.be  considering' the, industry"it repress  seated. Several methods were .discussed, and it was .finally "decided to  supply-each- director ;with membership  tickets, and they be instructed to  canvass-their respective districts and  make returns .to the' secretary at the  1st of each month.'" '-"���������������������������'���������������������������  ' It was decided to give, three prizes  for the best all-round milkers at some  of the autumn shows , "the prizes to  be, 1st, $10,- 2nd, ?5; 3rd, $2.50; the  prizes to" be --given at' Victoria, and  New, Westminster "fairs.//, .,������������������������������������������������������:/,. > - *-',  The,"matter of tubercular "cattle  coming to the fairs, and- methods  whereby sound herds could' be kept  from infection, was discussed at some  length, and it was finally decided  that the - Association recommend to  the various agricultural fair associations that they restrict their cattle prizes to animals that have a  certificate of tuberculin - test of less  than twelve months standing from a  government veterinary official! ' In  the_eyent_ofjtheir_npt, deeming,it ad-  cent of the freight charges upon applying and producing receipts to the  secretary, on - all registered dairy  stock imported to the province, and  fifty per cent under the same regulations and on the same class of stock  if sold within the province by one  member to another.  It was decided that the Association  would confine itself to recognized  breeds and to meet the stock breeders  half on the dual purpose breeds.  A committe consisting of Messrs.  Wells, Buckingham and Page, was appointed with powers to act with the  Railway Commission, if necessary;  the said committee, to take up the  irregularities of handling cans, cases,  etc., as well as charges. Messrs.  McQuarrie and ���������������������������Holliday were appointed to ' assist the committee in  dealing with Upper Country conditions.

D.C.L., M.A.,  M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P., and senior physician to the Lady Margaret Hospital  of Bromley, Eng., writes thc Order of  the Golden Age, a valuable paper on  the cause and cure of appendicitis.  Primarily he places the blame on the  fact that man is eating too much  meat, and too little fruit. '   r    \  "Appendicitis is caused by foul and  dirty intestines," he says. "Wash  them clean, and i the risk of the disease,is practically gone.  "I have shown how by eating a  mixed diet of flesh foods and foods  from the vegetable kingdom, the  great channel v of nutrition , of the  body becomes a cesspool of stagnating dangers. .

The subject of giving special prizes  for dairy stock at the fall shows, was  brought up by the reading of a letter  from "Armstrong" requesting" that- the  amount given last year at Vernon, be  transferred to Armstrong. Mr.. Hol-  liday from Salmon Arm also put in  a plea for his district.  It was decided to appropriate $600  to be given as special prizes at the  fairs, the regulating and deciding' of  places being left to the executive.  The subject of keeping yearly production of feed records was taken up.  The advantages of this line of work  were dealt with by almost every  member present, and each favored  tho Association assisting in this important work. Dr. S. -F. Tolmie  spoke of the work the Dominion Government was doing and stated that  he did not see anything to prevent  his Department from co-operating for  the mutual good of the dairymen of  British Columbia. It was decided  that the Association would give a  silver cup. to the cow of each breed,  i.e., Jersey, Holstein-Priesian, Guernsey and Ayrshire, giving the best  performance under the rules of the  yearly record of merit of the Dominion Government.

ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  The Innocent Murderers  A MYSTERY STORY  (By WILLIAM JOHNSTON and PAUL WEST)  (Copyright, 1910, by Duffleid���������������������������'& Company)  CHAPTER. VI.���������������������������Continued.  Aa the detective arrived iu front  of  cne college building he hoard footsteps  approaching from the opposite direction. They w.ore accompanied by a uiuf ���������������������������  fled, rumbling sound for which he was  at a Icas to account. Hastily extinguishing his cigar, he.slipped behind a tree  *o aAroid being; dU^ovexed-and to await  developments.. Tho footsteps came nearer. Peering out from, behind the tree  t������������������e could see in the gloom the hazy outlines of four figures. One of thorn was  trundling what the detective concluded  to be a wheelbarrow.  "Laborers, 1 guess," said Sullivan to  himself, "doing some work around tho  college, B-ut why don't they have a  light?" He strained his eyes and ears,  but could eeo or hear nothing further.  The figures approached nearer, and in  another moment would have passed the  tree behind which he stood. He drew  back to permit thorn to pass without  .liscovering him, resolving to follow  them at a safe distance. , But to his  aurprise they did not paBs him, and the  rumbling of the wheelbarrow suddenly  ieased. Sullivan cautiously leaned out  from his hiding-place. The men were  hidden in the shadow of the building,  but he could hear them in whispered  fonfereuce, though they were too far off  for him to .distinguish their words.  ���������������������������'���������������������������'Students up to some devilment, I  bet," thought he, and was about to retreat down the hill lest thoy should find  him lurking there aud give the alarm.  But he altered his mind .when one of  the group lighted a match aud proceeded to iguite a cigar, for a moment throwing a red glare on the faces of all four  meu. Instead af atudents, they wero  full-grown, dignified-looking persons, at-  least' one af them with grizzled hair  and beard.  "Idiot!" oue of them exclaimed, and  the match was immediately extinguish-  3d; but the detective had already observed, not only that the men were not  college students, but that they were in  their shirt-sleeves,.and, judging by..the  fact that two of them wore mopping  their brows, had beou engaged in somo  sort of manual labor. The wheelbarrow  aIso indicated this.  One of tiiem nest wheeled tho barrow  around to the side cf the building and  rhen rejoined his ' companions. After  this the foar of them walked hastily in  - - the direction, of-the village."  As they passed the tree that concealed Detective Sullivan, he heard- one of  them say: !  "We will separate -when we get to  the foot of' the. hill,    lt would not do  ��������������������������� foT us to walk through the village together."      - t.  Quick to makes up his mind, Sullivan  decided that ha would gain nothing by  following oue af the group, all af whom  he eould recognizo if he could see them  igain. Better' to inspect tho wheelbarrow, whose location he thought he knew,  and see if the men had been up to any  mischief around the college. So ho  -raited until they had passed down the  bill and out o.f hearing. Then, reasonably sure that the coast was clear, ho  made his way to tho corner of the building, where ho expected to find the wheelbarrow.  'It was there, and i-i it lay a spade.  Hie felt the surface ol' tho barrow and  found it dry and clean, but tho apade  gave evidence to tho touch oi: having  been recently used.  "It's dirt!" said Sullivan, under his  breath. ''Tkc-y-'ve been burying something." He. flashed his little pocket  _���������������������������ileutj.ic Jjght on tho_spado, and was astonished to "fi^"thal"^lia'rlre"~hira_taken-  ^or dirt was sawdust. ''That's funny! "  he said, and scraped off what sawdust  ulhered to tne spade, perhaps hali a  handful, .md put it in hie pocket. Now  be almost regretted not having followed the four mou who had used tho wheelbarrow, ft was too late, .however; tho  next best thing was to get into tho college building.  "Anyway," he said   to  himself,  by  - Fa-, -<������������������f- rfolaca,-.r-J..'-in. not .supposed to  be'riuuiin' doiru anything but Hop-  'ciiia."  ]|i������������������ fully expected to find the front  ���������������������������ioor of the college building locked, and  was [>r..j,������������������ rod to climb in a window; but  -,h<> i!'j<>r frwuug obligingly open at his  Irst touch. Uo stepped carefully in-  i'u\o, and wailed, the conditiou of the  loor making him afraid that there might  be ���������������������������<��������������������������� night watchman on hand.V Hearing nothing, ho located the stairs and,  iii tlif durkneKR, felt liisway to tho door  )f th'' laboratory. Flashing his_ light  jiico ri'ore, bis eye caught a notice of  jome :'<.������������������rt pinned to the laboratory door.  At th" rink of his light attracting attention, he examined the note carefully.  It said:  " Professor Hopkins has been called  )ut of town unexpectedly."  IT-ibit, chance or good luck led him  ;o investigate more fully. He passed  3ts finirer lightly ovor the writing. Tho  Ink w.ih still damp, shewing that the no-  ���������������������������i<!i������������������ could not have been written more  than -i few minutes before.  ���������������������������'That'll quoor, mighty queert" said  iulliv:.r. to himpclf. "Whoever put that  thcie .ii'irtl have written it and stuck  it up while those four men were_ right  acre' somewhere. If Hopkins himself  ���������������������������rrrotfi it.���������������������������tied very likely ho did���������������������������he  must have been in the building���������������������������he may  bo in the building now! Or'elHo he has  oeen, inside of a mighty few iruuutoi.  [Ml see."  lie put out his light again and atoop-  id to look through the keyhole of the  laboratory door, to discover if there was  k light in the door, ft was dark. He  itpeiied the door cautiously.    Ho would-  mrvey of the room, after he had pull-  xl down the inside curtains, thus sinit-  .ing in all light from his little "flash,"  :ouviuced him that he was alone.  The cupboard came  within rauge of  lie diminutive searchlight.    The doors  vere open, and  on the upper shelf he  ���������������������������aw what he instantly recognized as the  /lack bag of which Mrs. Hopkins had  >pokeu.    He emptied  its  contents'  lin-  oreiuouiously on the lloor.    (Quickly he  an  through the crumpled papers, and  hrust them in his pocket for future re-  ereuce.     Noue  of  them   looked  at  all  suspicious except tho note from Erueeta,  the couteuts of which Mrs. Hopkins had  retailed to him.    This he added to his  collection, and put tho bag back in its  place.  "She said he always carried this with  him wherever ho wcut,'' said Sullivan,  as ho put the bag on the shelf in tho  cupboard. "Well, this ia one time he  didn't.    Hello!     What's this?"  It was a large notebook lying beside  the bag. As he turned its pages, he saw  that it was a sort of diary kept by Professor Hopkins, and to his surprise thc  writing in it was not at all like that  of the note on the laboratory door.  "Aha!" said Sullivan, "If Hopkins  didn 't write that note, he must have  told somebody he was going away, and  got them to do it for him. Now, who?"  He was about to close the notebook  when his eye suddenly caught the last  entry made in it:  "Monday, May 18���������������������������At lautl''  "Why, that's today!" exclaimed the  detective aloud. Then, eagerly, ho ran  back over the preceding pages for some  clue to this last remark. He found it  entered on the Friday previous:  "Ernesta is ready to go," was the  sentence. Sullivan coutinued his search,  and on a page still further-back he  found:  "Everything is working out satisfactorily, lmagino that my fears regarding Gordon wore groundless. Ho knowe  uothing, f. am sure."  Sullivan was jubilant. "I guess Mrs,  Hopkins was right," ho said to himself.  "He was certainly planning to run away  with the girl, aud was afraid Professor  Gordon smolled a rat. Cagey old scoun  dre-1, all right! But he'll have to bo  cagier than that to keep me from landing him." ������������������  Cause and Cure  of Rheumatism  Due to Imparities in the Blood���������������������������Cured  Toy Dr. Williams' Pink   .  PilLa  Tho most noticeable and immediate  result of rheumatism is a marked thiu-  uing of the blood, and in no disease does  it develop moro rapidly.,  Not ouly does  the blood become weak but it ia soon  filled with impurities, which the different organs of the body havo been unable  to throw off.    One of the most harmful  of thoso impurities is uric acid, which is  formod from tho waste products of the  body. ��������������������������� In health it is readily passod off  by tho kidneys with the help of oxygen  from   tlio  red-corpuscles of the  blood.  Without   oxygen   the   kidneys  aro  unable to rid the system of this acid aud  it   is  retained  by  the?1 blood  and  distributed to all parts of tho body.   The  weak  back,  paius  across- the   kidiioys  aud thin scanty, highly colored Becre-  tious   which    follow,    show    that    the  acid if) already in the blood and often  leads the sufferor to think he has kidney Jjrouble^     If  the  disease   ia  not  "driven  ouT'lJf"the^biob"dr1"*'heumatisnr  can  never  be   cured,  and  the eufferor  will always be subject to attacks, whenever exposed to damp or cold.    With  each returning attacK tho pain becomes  more   severe   and   complications   often  arise making necessary the uso of habit  forming drugs  to  relievo pain.  It is readily seen that tho ouly way  to cure rheumatism is through thc  blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills afford  such..a,.troatraci.it, as they contain all  tho olomouLa necessary to" build"up  and purify the blood. They increase its  oxygen carrying capacity onabling tlio  kidneys to pass tho uric acid from tho  body and the other orgaim to do their  work. Thus rheumatism is reached at  its root aud permanently cured. Or.  Williams' Pink Pills aro absolutely free  from all habit-forming drugs, and are  not an '.experiment, as tho following  case will show:���������������������������Mr. W. Studley Lewis,  Pilot Mouud, Man., says:���������������������������"I am a firm  believer iu Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and  always keep some by me iu case of need.  A few years ago while teaching school I  suffered ho much with rheumatism iu  my anus and shoulders, that I had the  greatest difficulty in writing on the  blackboard, and after trying a number  of remedies without bonefit, I was almost in. despair, and felt inclined to  abandon teaching. But one day I happened to pick up one of'Dr. .Williams'  almanacs, aud read of the cure of. a  number of severe cases of rheumatism  through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.   This decided mo to give the Pills  the professor had gone; but he found  absolutely nothing, and decided, finally,  that* he might as well go back to the  hotel and get a night's rest, after tabulating his work for the evening.  As he let himself out of the college  door he was reminded of the wheelbarrow incident. Grown boldor now, he did  not hesitate to examine the ground with  his pocket-light, aud was able to see the  tracks made by the barrow and the four  men, clearly. He gathered that the men  had taken the wheelbarrow from its  place at the side of the building, and  brought it to the foot of the steps,  where, very Likely, they had put something heavy in it; for while the tracks  from the ban-ow's resting-place to the  steps were hardly discernible, where  they turned to the left they cut deep  into tho soft ground.  What had these men, at this hour  of the night, been doing?  "Anything's a detective's business,"  said Sullivan to himself. "I might as  well follow the tracks and see what thev  lead to."  With his pocket-lamp picking out the  direction the wheelbarrow had takou, he  investigated. Prom close observation of  the footflteps he decided that one man  had walked ahead, one wheeled the barrow and the other two walkod on either  side to steady it.  "Must havo been- something pretty  heavy," he commented. "If old Hopkins had been murdered, now, instead  of skipping out, I eould easily bolieve  that these wero the four murderers  carrying the bady away to bury it. I'm  almost sorry this ain't a murder; this  would be such a good start for0it."  He followed tho tracks along the road  that led away from tho village. Presently they turned into a wood-covered  path, whore all trace of them was lost.  Sullivan stumbled on along this path  until it brought him into a dense thicket.  His little light, to make things worse,  went out, the battery having become exhausted. He tripped on a projecting  root and nearly foil. Now ho decided  that it was useless to try to follow the  trail further, and started to retrace his  ate pa. -  Suddenly he stopped, and a smothered exclamation escaped him. The dense  darkness ahead was piercod by a tiny  ueedlo of light. Ho thought that it came  from behind him, and turned,- with his  arm raised to ward off any sudden blow  that might be struck him over his shoulder. ' Thore. waa nobody there. " He  smiled.  "My pocket-flash must have coma to  life again," he said; but it was not that.  Tho light eame from the big diamond  ho wore in his tie. Like a miniature  beaec-n this jewel���������������������������a present from a  grateful client���������������������������cast a glaring shaft of  light far into, the darkness. It was a  light far more brilliant than any the  detective had seen before. It seemed  to go through things, iustead of illuminating objocts with which it came in  contact. It -was, in short, a ghostly  light.  Au uncanny feeiing came over Sullivan. He placed his hand over the diamond, but tho light came through his  fingers, only now, instead of pointing  out in a Bixglc ray, it was diffused. He  could almost feel it burn his fingers, and  withdrew thom hurriedly. Bushing for  tho open road, he lost the path and  stumbled blindly through tho thicket,  finally emerging a hundred yards from  where he had entered.  Ah ho came into tho opeu, the light  of the diamond scorned gradually to  fade. By the time ho had reached the  hotel it had entirely disappeared.  any of you a suggestion? "What's going  to be done?"  "I don't know," faltered the luckless  Snyder, whose Unfortunate spying had  caused the whole affair. "Didn't Dr.  Fischer suggest some sort of story we  were to tell to account for Professor  Hopkins'untimely death?"  "No story would go about a body like  dot von,' said Fischer. "Ve could not  explain it." ,v  "Dr. Fischer is quite right," said  Rice. "How could we account for the  luminosity of the body? We could not,  and an investigation would naturally  follow. Our presence in the building at  this hour���������������������������and we have yet to explain  it at our homes���������������������������-is known to the scrub  woman. Perhaps our trip over the roof  and down tho skylight would come out.  Do you see the position in which we  would find ourselves? No, gentlemen,  the body must not be found in tho college building?"  This startling suggestion acused a  commotion.  "I don't quite understand," said  Gordon.  "It's plain enougii," said Eice. "Tho  scrub woman has seen the light that  emanates, I don't profess to know why,  from Professor Hopkins' body. If it  comes out that the body was in the  cupboard, at the time, and that we tried  to deceive the Bcrub woman, won't they  want to know what our reasons weref  And if they do, who's going to give  them a satisfactory explanation?"  "Dor only course," said Fischer, "is  vat Rice suggests. Get der body out of  der building nrst, und hide it until der  peculiar light has left it���������������������������if it should  leave it at all. After dat���������������������������veil, ve cannot see vat vill happen, but it vill be  better for us, anyway."  "Where shall we hide it?" asked  Snyder.  "There is the woods back of the college," said Rice.  They wero ready to accept any suggestion now. They rose, when Rice rose,  and left Snyder's room. Rice led the  procession toward the laboratory once  more. With trembling hands he unlocked the door and let them in, forgetting to fasten the lock after them. The  whole room was now completely filled  with the whitish glare. The body had  evidently grown even more luminous, for  the cupboard doors glowed as if there  was a. raging fire behind them and they  were of translucent glass iustead of  thick oak.  When exposed to thoir view Hopkin's  whole body looked like a human jack-o'  lantern. They recoiled from it in horror.  will be exhausted much' ������������������ sooner than  that, unless some profitable substitute  is found for anthracite.  As to bituminous coal in the United  States, the supply is very great ana)  wide-spread. It is estimated that it  will last something Iobb than four hundred and fifty years.  Not so long ago Great Britain had  " in sight,'' so to speak, although it  was all below the ground, an available  coal deposite of nearly one hundred  and forty-five billions of tons. At the  rate of production and consumption  then prevailing, this supply would hut  for about nine hundred years. The  coal measures of Lancashire are eight  thousand feet in thickness!  Moreover, there are many countries  which possess coal deposits that have  never been touched. Besides the great  coal-fields of 'Europe':-and America m  now workod, there are undoubtedly  coal deposits in China, in the Philli-  pinoe, in Australia, in South America,  in Alaska, in the Indian archipelaga,  and elsewhere.  Of one circumstance the Amerieao  poople, looking at the matter from the  consumer's standpoint, may well be  glad. Europo does not want the anthracite coal���������������������������the best fuel, on the  whole, that the earth has produced.  Europe does uot understand the use of  anthracite, and apparently is uot willing to learn it. It calls on us for bituminous coal, which we can spare more  readily.  The assumption that thc coal-fielda af  Great Britain and America will be exhausted, even at the end of several  centuries, is founded on the further  assumption that heat will continue to be  made and power generated, iu the future, much as now. But our inventor*  and chemists hold out the assuranev  that great changes may be looked for  iu thc methods of producing heat and  mechanical energy.

He gave the laboratory a thorough  overhauling in search of anything else  that might indicate where Ernesta aud  CHAPTER VEL  Tho Problem of the Four   The four men -whose strange -actions  had led the detective to follow tho trail  of tho wheelbarrow with such surprising  results, were Professors Snyder, Rice,  Gordon and Fischer.  Thoir course of procoduro after the  scrub-woman'a shrieks had drawn them  iu terror to tho laboratory to find Hopkins' body iu its tcrriblo, luminous condition, had been erratic, to say the least,  and not at all the lino of action ordiu  arily followed by a quartette of deliberate college profeesors.  But it must.'bo remembered that thoir  nerves were on ragged edge, so, when  thoy reassembled in Snyder's room,  there was not one among them capable  of careful reasoning.  For several minutes thoy were silent:  Snyder with a hopeless stare; Rice with  knitted brows, striving to collect his  shattered wiks sufficiently to form the  first equation necessary to the solution  of the problem; Gordon shaken by many  disquieting suspicions, and Fischer  white with rage at himself and the others who had drawn him into this situation. On one point their minds were  working in concert. It would never do  to lot Mrs. Hopkins and hor husband's  body in its present condition.  Rico, as usual, took the lead. Turning  suddenly to his silent confreres, he de-  mandod:  "Well, are you going to sit here all  night like a trio of sphinxoR? Haven't  worse. It may set fire to tho college,  ft may���������������������������who knows what' it may do?  We, niUBt lose no time. But how shall  we get it away?"  "There is- a' wheelbarrow outside,."  said Gordon. "The gardener left it there  to-day." ' '.,".,  "Get it," eaid Rice, with grim desperation, "we will carry it dowu to the  front 'door."  "Like���������������������������like that?" stammered Gordon.  "No," said Fischer, "ve must wrap it  up in something."  Rice came to the rescue. In a closet  in the inner laboratory he found several  large sheets of blue-print paper. With  these thoy made an ungainly bundle of  Professor Hopkins, and tied him with  strings.'- Sheet after sheet they wrapped  about the body, trying to shut in all  traces of the radiance, but itlnsisted ou  stealing out between cracks and folds iu  the paper.  "That's tho best we can do," said  Rice, at last. "Now come."  They lifted it carefully and carried  it down to tho waiting vehicle. The curious light still streamed from the bundle,  making a nimbus easily perceptible several yards away. In despair Rice gazed  on thc thing as it lay in the wheelbarrow and they started, Rice ahead aud  Gordon and Fischer walking on either  side to steady the wheelbarrow.  With a feeling of great relief thoy  ended thoghoTt journey in the open  and found~thcmselves a'rth^^"ii"tra"n*ce=bf-  the woods. Not till they had reached  this point did Snyder dare rest his limp  muscles. He set the barrow down and  stopped to take breath.  "Where Bhall we bury it?" whispered  he.  "Bury it! Preposterous!" said Rice.  "A suicide does not attend to his own  interment! Wo must hide it."  "I know der place," said Fischer.  "Dor.old ice-house.by Brindler's.pond."  They were all familiar with the spot.  The ice-house now in a dilapidated state  after many years of disuse, reposed on  the edge of a pemd at the other end of  the littlo patch of woods. The path  could be found only by ono familiar with  it. Fischer etumblod once or twice after  thoy had resumed their march, and Gordon took the lead. He sighed. Memories connected with this path, locally  known ae "Lovers' Walk," crowded his  thoughts and gave him exquisite agony  of mind.  The ice-house reached, thoy lifted  their burden from the wheelbarrow and  carried it iusnde. Rice lit a match to  help them see the iutorior of the place,  and before it had died ont they had deposited the bundle in a corner of the  building, on the floor just over the edge  of the pond. They heaped some boards  which they found in the floor over it,  and with a spade threw some loose sawdust on the heap.  (To be contlrmed)  DOUBLE  PURPOSE   CATTLH  THE advantages of cross breediag  cattle in order to combine in the  offspring some special quality  which one of the breeds possesses  in a marked degree-, and the other  does not, and vice versa, is usually the  basis cf these experiments. "Thus we  observe the present-day advocacy of  the cross breeding of the Scotch tligh-  land cattle onto tho Shorthorn sad  other popular beef breeds, with a view  of securing a type ot class of cattle"  that will be better fitted to stand exposure aud starvation conditions on the  the  E*W  western range, and also improve  beef quality of the present cattle  in use.  ���������������������������This system of acquiring the streng,  special   characteristics   of   two   breeds  in one has been pretty thoroughly tried  out  in  the   crossing  of. the   beef  aad  dairy breeds .to get a good, all-purpos*  animal.   These experiments-of creating  a dual purpose animal .from the cross-,  ing of distinct breeds'of beef, and dairy  cattle,  has  failed 'and'has-proven  unsatisfactory.    Tho breeding of milk ot  beef quality into the beef breeds, the  intensifying of eithor of these qualities  in the  animals  at the  sacrifice, of the  other, has not been a failure.  , .It has been established  by breeders  of beef breeds of cattle that the" milk-,  ing quality, or tendency  in  a  herd  of  Shorthorns, ' Herefords,  or  other  breed  may be greatly increased by selection;  or, on the other hand, the beef quality,  of the animal may be -increased and the"  milking quality decreased by selectioa.,  In  other  words,  the  carrying  forward  of these two properties in tho same a������������������i-  mal does uot prevail.  The idea of cross-bred cattle for dairy  purposes is not a new one, and has to  some extent boon practised for yearn  by those who are engaged in the production of milk aud butler. The facte  are, there is iuotc of this crossing oi  breeds being done than appears on the  surface, or moro th.an is published in the  papers..

THE  WORLD' S   COAL  SUPPLY  THE subject of an exhaustion of the  coal-supply in the Uuited States  is not one that can affect the present  generation or the next. Yet the American supply is likely to be exhausted before that of Europe, and particularly  before that of Great Britain. America  should, beyond doubt be saving of her  coal.  It. has been estimated that Pennsylvania has about enough anthracite coal  to last, at tho rate of production that  nrevails now, a little less than two  hundred   years.    Probably  the  supply  A VERY common trouble in the or  dinary dairy is to find an animal,  with the point, of the teat closed,  either duo to a bruise of the teat itself, or to infection of the milk duet-  which causes a little scab to form over  the point of the teat, and unless this ip  properly handled with care and cleanliness, the infection is apt to cause a loss  of tho i.-ntire quarter.  The proper manner in which to handle  and treat such cases is to thoroughly  wash tho teat in an antiseptic solution.,  then dip a- teat plug into a healing  ointment and insert if; into the point of  tho teat, allowing same to remain from  one milking to another. In this manner  closure of the point of the teats can be  ovorcome in a very simple and satifl  factory manner.  ;' Never use a milking tube if it oft������������������  possibly be avoided, as there is much  danger of infecting the entire quarter  by the use of the tube,  71  Q  ralcbly  alopa coodb*.   car������������������������������������ colds,   tv  th* thtMi and lamia.      ���������������������������   ���������������������������  aa ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  &  ONTAINS  ALU  ������������������s ������������������  gWH���������������������������nrr.l  Magic  ���������������������������stum  MAGIC  BAKING POWDER  IS THE FAVORITE  AND COBS NO RWE THAN IHE WmiABYKMDS  E.W. GILLETT CO. LTD.   TO RONTON  FASHIONS   AND  FANCIES  EVERY one was getting a bit tired of embroidery bestowed helter-skelter, and when designer's' came in with  the frothy models gay with bead work at the first of the  Mason they, received rapturous greeting. To be sure, the  aest popular blouse of the day is really two waists, one under  ihe other, and material and work are increased if not doubled.  But quantities of fabric and lavish work do not seem to be  regarded seriously in these days of riotous extravagance, and  tf tbe dressmaker insists on three gowns for one, her client  Blue Gown with Bauds of Sealskin  ���������������������������urrenders. So a little matter of two waists is a matter of  little moment. The most used suit waist is chiffon with more  ���������������������������r less elaborate bead work. It is put over either plain or  Persian silk. It is surprising how the vogue for Persian  effects holds on. Chiffon over-waists with Persian foundations  were here last year at this time, and they seem to be little  hurt by the extensive use to which they have been put dur-  ii.g the intervening months. The Persian gauzes and silks  kave improved much in colors and the ways they are applied  ������������������ince they first came in. One of the innovations is the use  of pastel and even dead tones with the designs and color  .combinations which characterize so-called Persian patterns.  And the result in the best instances is really all that could  ���������������������������e desired. But the bead work is, of all the trimmings,  the most generally popular. The wood beads, wonderfully  light in weight whatever their size, and dull of finish, are  the newest and most effective in many cases. In an over-  f/aist seen only this week���������������������������it was made of black chiffon���������������������������  there was a plain round necklace of these wooden beads in  dull blue alternating with old red. The low-cut neck of the  fraist was embroidered with little beads in American Indian  aCect. One of the smart possibilities and a practical one  is hand embroidered crepe de chine and a Japanese silk  Cttern waist that come in beautiful designs and that may  eolored at small expense to match any suit.    Such a  vaist is always in order for the walking tailor-made, and the  ulk wears well, as a rule.  ��������������������������� ���������������������������    ���������������������������  All sorts of odd freaks are cropping out in the. milli-  lery salon. One of the smart shapes seen only yesterday���������������������������  i big mushroom���������������������������had the wide brim covered with finely  diiTred black tulle over gold tissue. The tulle was shirred  iver tiny cords at the edge and around th������������������ .middle of the  ���������������������������mm. Around the crown there were swirled five or six  -,awny cream feathers that .completely hid it. Another hat���������������������������  i toque���������������������������had a brown silk crown draped very high and full  md a wide moleskin brim. Lace frills, black ehantilly over  vhite, fell below the fur. Another hat���������������������������a big shape���������������������������had for  ts boIp and only trimming a double bow knot of the yellow  and black fitch' furl Some of the Prenchiest little fur  sets are being turned out by fashionable tailors to go with  suits made by them. And there is a suggestion in these  blends of cloth and fur for the girl with limited means and  old fur that she can convert into up-to date trimmings. Not  an inch of fur ought to be allowed to go to waste this season  while furs are bo much used for garnishing everything but  actual underclothes. The newest and most bizarre hat,  neckpiece,and muff sets are being made of brocade and fur.  These, of course, are all more or less whimsical and te be  sightly must be original'and savor of the picturesque.  # #    ���������������������������  There are perfumes and perfumes, and many of them are  highly successful from a business point of view���������������������������which to  the particular woman is just the trouble���������������������������everybody soon  uses them, and their day of exclusiveness is over. But a new  one has just been imported from Russia that in my opinion  justifies all that can be said of it, and so^far it is certainly  quite uncommon. I think it is bound to be a success, for it is  just exclusive enough in its fragrance to "attract, and positive  enough to hold one's attention; besides it isn't at all eheap,  which is a blessing in disguise, for while a bottle lasts one  a long time���������������������������due to its "strength���������������������������the price will keep it irom  becoming common, I hope." All of the toilet accessories���������������������������eau  de toilette, soaps, powders;, a wonderfully lasting sachet, bath  salts, etc., are also supplied in Jthe same .odor, and I feel sure  that it's refined delicacy will make a place for it.  If it were not for the trimmings of dinner and evening  gowns they would be unsightly in the extreme. The silks,  slltins, nets, lace's, passementeries of gold and silver, are  beautiful���������������������������provided the motives of the latter are not too  heavy. "But it is,the"cut as well as the way such garments  are "made that-cause them to look" like the venerable Mother  Sealskin Coat  Hubbard wrapper. There is not the least shape to them.  And then over the whole yards and yards of mousseline or  net are made to depend. Those, in turn, are caught somewhere on the hem, and at each step the drapery bobs in. A  whimsical little suit of satin cloth, the kind with a wool  back, had an odd, long straight tunic of the satin over a  velvet skirt. The coat had a bolero-shaped upper part whieh  was of satin, with a perfectly straight undercoat that came  just below the waistline of velvet. The latter hung perfectly  straight and plain with square corners. Fur edged the bolero  and its "V front, and the bottoms of the three-quarter sleeves.  A stunning velvet gown trimmed with bands of aBtrakhan had  the bands falling against wider bands of black chiffon, embroidered closely with little apaque white beads. These little  white beads are used not only on gowns, but on waists. A  handsome black coat and skirt suit has a waist of black  chiffon, and the entire front of the waist is embroidered with  the white beads.* The beads are used on cloth, and even on  velvet. Beaded trimmings of the kind come by the yard with  chiffon net or silk background in black or colors. The square  collars of sailor style are being used on all sorts of eoatu, and  they are often bordered with fur. The addition of such 8  collar with the fur edge often brings up to date a passe garment left over from a former season.  MAKING   SOFT   CHEESE   ON   IHE  FABM  SOME years ago, it was the privilege  of the writer to visit a small dairy  on Vancouver Island, where tbe  owner was exploiting a small enterprise of his own, in the manufacture of  a soft, mild, whole-milk cheese. This  cheese has proven so popular that he  has built up a profitable business in the  western market, especially with the  club, hotel, and other fancy trade. The  price realized was a very handsome one,  the maker getting twenty-five cents pei  pound for bis goods, along with a de-  maud that easily handled all he could  supply.  Another instance of a somewhat similar kind is to be found on the farm of  one of the largest Holstein breeders in  Ontario, who manufactures a somewhat  soft and mild cheese, whieh has proven  so popular that he has a market almost  exclusively his own and at a priee considerably above the regular quotations  lor ordinary faetory product.  There is no doubt but that Canadian  taste in cheese runs pretty strongly in  this direction, and there is a good substantial market awaiting every sueeces-  ful effort to supply it. In view of this  fact, Bulletin 25, issued by the Dairy  Cold Storage Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture, at Ottawa,  should be of interest to many. The  bulletin' deals with the business- of  manufacturing soft cheese, and *isr compiled by Janet McNaughton, N.D.D., instructor of Home Dairying at Maedon-  ald College, P.Q.  Tbe making of soft eheese is profitable, and there is good return for both  milk and labor, as is shown by the following estimate: ��������������������������� >  1 gal. milk, retail average priee 25e  1 gal. milk, wholesale av. price. 20c  1 gal. milk, yielding 1 lb. Cheddar cheese (retail priee).... 18*  1 gal. milk, yielding % lb. of  butter (a generous estimate) 12c'  1 gal. milk, 2 lb. soft cheese -  (15e each) 30e   '  Tbe cheese is ready for the market in  one week, and this means little storage  room, and speedy returns. The proeess  of making it is not difficult.  Any clean room with good ventilation  will do, a dry, clean eellar being a very  suitable plaee. It must be free from  dust or smells,' and "the best temperature,,say 60 to 65 deg., ie-more often  found in a eellar than elsewhere on the  farm, in the summer-time. If the temperature is higher the eheese is apt to  drain too quickly,, while on the. other  hand,-if it is too eold, the eheese"may  uot drain quickly enough and may have  a bitter flavor.     _  ,   .   c  Sweet, clean,- whole milk-should be  used, as' sour 'milk makes a harsh, dry  cheese, and skim milk makes a cheese  that is hard and dry"and unpalatable.  Rennet may be used either in the liquid  ct tablet form. The latter is generally  more convenient, and, as a soft-curd is  wanted, a little less rennet may be used  than -is required for junket., Only'.pure,  dry' fine*salt should be used.  Wooden tubs are best for setting the  milk in, as they maintain a. more even  temperature than metal vessels do, and  this is important not only on account  of- the faet that a falling temperature  means a rising of eream to the top, but  it also means a eurd tuat will not drain  well; .---���������������������������--*'-        " "     - -   -    -  A table with a sloping surface is best  as it -facilitates -drainage, when the  cheese;is placed upon it.. Moulds for  making the-eheese should be made of  tin, in two pieces to facilitate'turning  the cheese. They should be 5% in. in  diameter, and 5, in. in height. They  cost about thirty-five cents each.  When made, the cheese is laid on  boards, or straw mats,'and no_pressure  given it. The mats are placed on the  boards, and the moulds-into which the  curd" is laid are placed on them, and  each board with its mat on ..top holds  two moulds. If straw mats are not  available or it is too much trouble to  make them, a double fold of coarse open  inen will do. The following is the  method of making tno cheese:  _ Rc_qujxe_me_nts__f or_. two_chee_se_:_l_gal.,  new milk.' Fifteen drops rennet extract.    ] oz. pure dairy salt.  1.
