 .#  t^>_  J-  Enderby, B. C,  March 9,  Vol: 4;*No. 2; Whole No. 158  Instructive Demonstration on  Tobacco Culture Starts Tests Here  One of   the  meetings held  best,    if not the best,,is the first"requirement.     This must  in Enderby under the;be 24 inches   by 3 'feet, with a frame  ^.^  _    ���������������������������.e    Farmers'  Institute, ' 14 inches   high    at   the back and 60  was that of Tuesday evening in K. of! inches high in front; the bed always  P. Hall, to hear Mr. L. Holman, the!to face the sun. The soil in the seed  pioneer tobacco-grower of Kelowna, | bed should' be prepared as for any  discuss the possibilities of tobacco- other seed; the seed is then placed in  growing in and    about Enderby.     A  very -interested audience attended the  lecture, numbering more than 50, and  in the audience were noticed many of  our progressive agriculturists.  Mr. C. S. Handcock occupied the  chair, and briefly introduced Mr. Holman and the subject of the discussion. It was apparent1 throughout  the "demonstration that there were a  a woolen .sack '(about a thimbleful)  and should soak over night. The  seed will sprout in about seven days;  Have bed ready; mix the seed with  sand and sow it. After' sowing,  cover seed, and use a roller to pack  down the soil, then give.the bed a  good watering. In about 7 days, the  plants should be showing. Keep beds  covered at least   two weeks after the  number of * agriculturists, and owners - plants are    up.    ' When plants are 3  of small parcels of land in and about-! inches high; get the ground ready for  Enderby," who   were deeply interested  in the suject of the discourse.  Mr. Holman has a very blunt, practical, clear delivery. He has grown  tobacco in the Okanagan for upwards  of 17 years, and speaks as one having  a" deep, practical knowledge, learned  in the school of "hard knocks, and one  having'unlimited -faith'in the .industry, and "one having 'showed bis faith  b$ his-works." " - ' ... "*���������������������������',"  . Mr.'-Holman*"had. a: quantity: of the  curedi plant with him,' together ��������������������������� with  many" photos- showing--the tobacco  fields in the' .various stages of development", the drying sheds, seed beds,  and curing' rooms. " These added to  the lecture inestimably.  Mr. Holman said he was certain a  splendid industry was- opening to the  agriculturists of the Enderby District  and he, hoped to see many of them  put in a test crop this season. The  demand for Okanagan tobacco" seems  to be almost as strong as the demand  for "' Okanagan ^ apples, or Okanagan  peaches. " A standing offer has been  made by an English-tobacco firm for  350 or 400 thousand tons annually  soon as the Okanagan is able to produce this amount. A similar offer is  made by a Japanese tobacco house.  Indeed, the tobacco houses of Canada  =alone=would=take=alUof=,the=Okanagan-  output, and will contract for it two  or three seasons' ahead. ���������������������������   -  The price paid for the cured weed,  taking 6c per pound for the rough  leaves, and from 15c to 32c per pound  for the better qualities, will average  for the entire crop about 22c per  pound. An acre of land will produce,  from 1000 to 2000 pounds of the marketable grades, thus yielding the  growers from $200 to $400 per acre.  From this amount must be deducted  the cost of growing, seeding, planting, care and marketing, amounting  to $40 or $45 an acre.  Mr. Holman could not see any reason why" tobacco growing could not  be made as profitable to the men of  the Enderby district as it is proving  to the growers of Kelowna and vicinity. In fact, he believed the weather conditions- here were even more  favorable than those of the dry belt.  The tobacco holdings of Mr. Holman at Kelowna, were recently sold  to a company of Vancouver capitalists, and this company has stocked  the incorporated company for $2,500,-  000. It may be judged from this  what the new company proposes to  do. Every effort is being made by  the company to get more tobacco  farms established. A ready market  is assured    at  planting out;' plow 5 inches deep;  plant at once. As a rule it takes 4  or 5 days - before the plants start;  start cultivation as soon as plants  start; keep cultivating all you can  for-the first1. 2 or 3 weeks. The  plants by this time will "have, grown  and has 'never been bothered by a  pest of any kind since adopting the  plan of broadcasting the bran, sugar  and paris green mixture.  Cut the plant when the leaves "are  free from dew and rain, and be very  careful that the direct rays of the  sun do not hit the leaves ,-after being  cut. Pile plants in small piles and  cover from the sun until you can get  plants under cover of the'drying shed.  The Comstock and Havana are the  varieties which do best here. Both  have to be grown as both are needed  in work together in tlie manufacture  of cigars. The Comstock t is much  the easiest to care for, and grows  a very much laVger leaf, and he believes it is - advisable for all beginners to plant Comstock the first year  "or two. . ,   ,  If the price of .tobacco is low any  one year, the crop can be'stored in  drying sheds and kept' 5 or 6 years,  or even longer," and improves with  age.

It is moving out of the hands of the "old  timers" into the hands of the new���������������������������a  period and a condition common to  all communities, and one through  which each must pass in the line of  development. In the past, the "old  timers" have had the interest of the  town at heart; they contributed of  their talent and substance to build it  in accordance with their belief as to  this omnivorous spirit of Grab.  Legitimate businesses', have been  lost to the town, and the erection of  blocks and institutions which would  have been a credirto^th-e^town^have-  been blocked and progress checked by  this bubble-in-a-bottle.  Men have been cajoled,- bluffed and  wheedled and when they have capitulated, this   Spirit   of    Grab has set  second and third-story rooms. * The  same, or a similar, order was issued  to the license holders of the K. of P.

As a result of   that   meeting,  the Board of  School Trustees have been ordered to  constructed from  ection from the ball. It is also required that all doors be made to, open  outward.  These are regulations which we have  ignored in the past, though the matter of better precautions at the pub:  lie school has long been pushed forward by parents who were sufficiently  interested on their children's welfare."  And thc public hall requirements have  been discussed until the question is  threadbare.  The prompt action of the Board in  dealing with these matters will meet  with the hearty approval of all citizens who realize the importance . of  the requirements, and it is to be  hoped that the Board will "stand  pat" on the order issued. The loss  of life in case of fire or panic in  either of the buildings referred to  would surely be awful under present  arrangements, and the enforcement of  the regulations is imperative if the  safety of the public and school children is to be looked after.  Mr. Ji E. Crane has accepted app- "  sition with the Pitrie Manufacturing  Co.,  of Hamilton,    Ont.,  for the introduction   of   their   Magnet    Cream  Separator.   Mr. Crane's experience as  a buttcrmaker is well known in this,  district and practical demonstrations ,  will be   given   free   on the farms to  users . of    the .

It means  more butter   and   better butter, and  good prices to tbe farmers.     A complete supply of   all the most modern   ,  and    up-to-date   dairy    utensils,    including   separators,    churns,    butter:  workers and everything that goes to  furnish a modern and up-to-date dairy  will be kept in Enderby.

Duffield & Company)  CHAPTER   IX���������������������������(continued)''  The Bank Episode  FIVE thousand dollars!"  Mrs. .Jlopkins soiled the words,  as she  realized  it all.    .Nut'' satis-  lied with abandoning lior and her clul-  dreu,   Hie   scoundrel   had   taken   their  savings or' .wars, their all, leaving her  poverty.    She turned upon  the  to  lace  ���������������������������iiiMiii'r,  "Oli  nnd you let  right to do  my money !  ing and (ion  I'xcuse  the mono  tianie,   :unl  .'*.  Oh! " she cried.

"me,"'   said   the   old   man;  y   was   in   your   husband's  under   the  laws   he  had   a  ���������������������������right to draw it- whenever ho pleased  ���������������������������'lint you must have known "  Mrs. Hopkins could go no further.-She  realized that she would be showing her  hand. This she resolved not to do under  any circumstance*. She must have the  money with which to pay Sullivan. .She  turned to the cashier again, endeavoring to be calm.  "I did not know," she said, "that  Professor Hopkins contemplated drawing quite so much money, lie���������������������������he was  unexpectedly called away. I���������������������������-I must  have a hundred dollars today���������������������������at once.  Is there not a wav it eould be arranged?"  "I wonder what she needs the money  for?" thought Mr. Fox; but, seeing ber  troubled face, he decided not to ask her.  "If you really must have it," he  said, "I guess we ean arrange it, 'lue  professor's salary is always paid on the  twentieth, if you will promise to deposit that promptly 1 guess we can let  yon have this hundred dollars."  Airs. Hopkins promised blindly. She  must, pay the detective now. The necessity was more urgent than ever. So  she took thc bills Mr. Fox handed to  ber,;-' thrust them into her purse, and  hurried home.  She had scarcely closed the door of  her house behind her when she heard  i ring at the bell. It must be the defective. Hue ran to open the door, but  through the side lights in tho hall she  nivS that it was uot Sullivan, but a  student. What eould he want". Her  ���������������������������juriosity almost impelled her to let. him  in, but she hesitated, lie might, of  course, have some word from her husband; but it could be nothing of importance. Her vanished, spouse surely  -would not send her any clue to his  whereabouts. Besides, she feared that  ��������������������������� she. could not maintain composure bo-  fore a stranger, arid she did not wish  to betray-her feelings again, as she had  it thc bank. No; he could ring. So,  in response to the student's repeated  pulls at the bell, she kept silence, and  finally had the satisfaction of seeing  him go away.  Detective Sullivan, in the meantime,  vas busy.    He  rose early, and, acting  'yn the clue furnished by Gordon's late  risit to the railroad station, set about  liscovering  what  other means  of getting  out  of  Graydon   there  might  be,  ather than the railroad.    This had been  .bis   intention   from   the   beginning,   ns  be realized that so prominent a person  is Professor  Hopkins would  not, if he  wished to cover bis tracks, try to leave  town from so public a place as the railroad  station,  if  there were  any 'other  way of disappearing.  New England is a network of trolley  lines. Sullivan found that while no  street car line ran directly through  Graydon, a main line was only two  niles distant. By walking that far  inyone could take the trolley to one  -vf half a dozen towns where railroad  jonnection could be made for Boston  ind other cities.   Tf, therefore, Ernesta  wilding and up the stairs to the labora-  ory. Before the door stood a short,  ddish man, critically examining the  iote which was still pinned to the door,  'ullivan stepped up behind him and  ���������������������������aid;  "I beg.your pardon, sir; but are you  'rofe.ssor Hopkins/"  Sullivan knew that thc man was not  lopkins, and accosted him in this way  uerely to make au excuse for his produce near the laboratory.   Then ensued  lis conversation with the Dean, and the  'itiei-'s   gracious   effort   to   din'ct   him  'o  Professor Snyder's room.    This was  'he moment  for action.    Sullivan slyly  took  the note,  from  the door, thanked  the Dean for his kindness, and hurried  >ut of the building.  lie   made  his  way   directly  to  Mrs.  Hopkins'   house   and   was   soon   seated  '���������������������������lesidc her iu the parlor.  "Have  you  caught them?"  she  de-  'iianued of him.  i >  .    -'-")  track,  strong  "Mot quite," said he; "but .1 am on  their  ha ve  Tney  clues.  cannot,   escape.    .1  Mow.  before I go  the girl's sudden dis-  as  long  -fi1 rriKK���������������������������'i n,1 _j"[qnl-.i in-^uro _* ii -Cra vrl nn _iJn  !ate the preceding day as to make Gor-  "on suspect that they had uot gone by  k,he last train, it was most likely that  ���������������������������.hoy had walked to the trolley line,  inder cover of darkness, and thus had  thrown   suspicion  off  their  movements.  As to the freshly written note which  '.he detective had discovered ou the  'aboratory door the night before, if it  vorc not written by Hopkins, fiomobody  mist have known that he was going.  To find out who wrote the note -was,  ',hcn, the first work for him to do.  When he reached the college building  io noted, with a feeling of satisfac-  jou. that the wheelbarrow and spado  -rem just where be had seen tho four]  lion Icavo them. lie would have anil her look at the wheelbarrow, and he  vent toward it. He stood bending care-  ���������������������������'essly over it, when a shadow fell  u-roM his shoulder. Looking up sud-  lonly, he saw' the fnco of Dr. Fischer,  .'or a vcond. peering out of a clas.-'-  ���������������������������oom window just overhead. Tbe face  vas frightened, thought Sullivan', and  ic remembered it as one i.f those that  if had yen. the night previous, at the  iny  further, "have you '"  "I have," said Mrs. Hopkins, thrusting tlie money which she had drawn  ���������������������������'rom the bank'into his hand, "aud what  lo yon think?"  Whereupon she poured into the defective's astonished ears the story of  Professor Hopkins' withdrawal of the  family  funds from the Graydon IBank,  '���������������������������'The scoundrel" he exclaimed. "I"  beg your pardon, ma'am, for speaking  of your husband that way; but he is!  Any man that would do that would���������������������������  au<ii you say that this hundred dollars  is vour last cent?"'  "Worse than that," sobbed Airs.  Hoplvius. "Tt is drawn against, his  montlily salary, not yet received, and  that is only $.150."  "Here, ma'am," said Sullivan, putting the money on the parlor table.  "Take this. You pay mc when the  case is done, an'" I've caught him and  made him give you back the money  he's stolen.   Ves. stolen!"  lie would not listen to the woman's  protestations that she must pay, to keep  her word. Closing the incident, he continued, suddenly confronting her with  the note which he had plucked from  tlio laboratory door:  "Look" at this now, and tell me, do  you know whose writing it is?"  . Mrs. Hopkins brushed the tears away  from her eyes and looked at the note.  As she read it she, was almost overcome. She did not for the .moment notice that the handwriting was-not that  of her husband, and took it" to. be a  word from him. - "Not a word lo her,  but a word���������������������������it was a solace, no matter  what she might think of him. Tho detective continued:  "Don't get excited, ma'am. 'Jt isn't  from'-your husband, is it?"  "No," said Mrs. Hopkins, "it is not  his writing.   Tt is "  "Whose?"'

CHAPTER  X.  Professor Snyder's Falsehood  Tuesday   proved   a   day   of   unspeakable  torture  for Messrs.  Rice,  Snyder.  Fischer   and   Gordon.     They   crept   to  thf   pfiHegn   guiltily.     Snyder   was   the  fir^t to" arrive," and  as* he "en'owl "the  building   he   noticed   a   general   excitement.     Instinct  told   him  it  had  to do  with  tho event   of   the  previous  :l11<t furiosity���������������������������the curiosity that  ithe nuirdoror back  to the scene  ! crime���������������������������fowd him  to mount the  | to the second story.    He saw the  j around   the   laboratory   ami   his  sank.     Learning,   however,   that  nighl.  draws  of his  stairs  crowd  heart  ihov  Hopkins' note he blushed, stammered,  and became inextricably confused. Ho  realized what a botch of it he had made  by suggesting that the Dean should ask  Bice or'.Fischer'about it.- But it was  too late to  retract.  The students' gossip concerning both  Hopkins and I'nicsia drove him nearly  distracted during the day. He could  hardly resist the temptation, when ho  hoard iheir names coupled, to cry out:  ".It's a lie! A miserable lie! They  have not eloped! "  Hut he realized that he must say uo-  thing.  For the Dean, also, the day was proving interesting. He questioned the messenger who brought him the startling  news of Ernesta Frost s disappearance  over and over again, but could learn  nothing more. Cautioning him to keen  thc knowledge of  appearance from the students  as possible, the Dean sent him away and  began to think. He was not such a  blind old fool as they thought. He had  noticed the students' comments at the  laboratory door. He had long been  aware of rhe evenings that Hopkins was  spending in his laboratory with Frnosta  as his assistant, and had mentally questioned the. expediency, of allowing such  a thing to continue. Not that he had  any suspicions���������������������������merely that the collece  could not afford the slightest possibility  of a scandal.  Was this simultaneous disappearance  of Hopkins aud the senior the climax  of these evenings? Certainly it, looked  mysterious.  "Moreover," soliloquized the Dean,  "if there s no mystery about it, why  did Snyder wrifc that note and tell me.  nothing about it-? Why did Rico and  Fischer deny that they knew anything  about Hopkins, and why did Gordon  hay that he thought they did? And,  what became of ihe note, anyway?"  As if in answer* to this question,  there was a knock at his door, and tlio  Dean  called  "Come in!"  There entered Detective Sullivan, or,  as the Dean knew him, the book agent.  "Dean Quimby, l believe?" was his  greeting. \  "Yes,'' said the. Dean brusquely,, for  he was uot pleasantly inclined towards  this smooth, quiet stranger, who, he  believed, ha/1 stolen the bit of evidence  from the door of the laboratory. "My  name is I'uiinby.   Who arc you?"  "My name is Sullivan," said the detective, "and I. have come, to see you  about Professor Hopkins."  "Oh, you have!" said the Dean.  "Well, Mr. Sullivan, "1 .'do uot know  what Professor Hopkins is to you, and  before I havo any conversation .concerning him, I would like to ask you  what you did with the note���������������������������Oh!"  Por with a smile, Detective Sullivan  was holding the bit of paper out to the  Dean,  who took it.  "Professor   Hopkins'  note!"  he  exclaimed.  Sullivan corrected him, saying:"  "Professor Snyder's note, I guess you  mean,' sir."  "How did you know that?" asked  the Dean, scowling.  "lt;s my business to find out," said  Sullivan. "1 am a detective, and now,  if you can assure tne that we are absolutely alone, I would like to ask you  a few questions and tell you. a few  things."  " Vou may go ahead," said the Dean.  "'But, first' of all. may I ask if you  have any���������������������������suspicions regarding tho  mysterious' disappearance of Professor  Hopkins?"  "I'm glad, sir," saicPSullivan, "that  vnu-arft���������������������������wilIing-to.admit_th.'it._thejic_ is.  THE POPULARITY OF THE PIPE  ���������������������������HE pipe is not a ������������������������������������������������������modem creation.  Some years ago Liout.-Col. Dahm  of tae Prussian army, while excavating within the walls of the old Roman rort of Ailso, near Haltorn, found  fragments of earthen pipes* that had  ueen used by smokers. Some had been  artistically made and decorated, and all  showed the marks of expert coloring,  says a writer.in Harper's Weekly. The  pipes could not have been used for tobacco smoking, for the tobacco plant  was not known in Europe whoa they  were fashioned. Possibly the barbarians of that epoch smoked hemp leaves  and the heau.s of poppies.  The origin of the pipe is thus very  ancient, but the tobacco pipe is of modern use. Tobacco did not make its way  into general favor until well into t ho  eighteenth century. People of elegant  taste, people of the higher social classes,  took snuff from handsome snuff boxes,  but no one smoked. At the beginning of  ihe nineteenth century no ono dared to  confess to pipo-smoking, although the  habit was secretly indulged in by many.  At. that period, as at present, the cafes  frequented by the aristocracy proscribed the pipe.  Towni'u the end of the Empire, Wal-  eci; Rnsseau was expelled from the Cafe  Riohe for smoking a pipe in direct do-  lianco of the rules of the place. Ros-  senu carried the ease to court, but tho  result was not made public. -The pipe  was ostracized in Berlin as well as in  France. Tho people of Berlin have enjoyed the right to smoke pipes publicly  only within the last eighty years. 0'n  of Prussia signed a decree permitting  the inhaitants of Berlin to smoke pipes  in the streets and in the Thiergarlen.  Until then their use in public watt forbidden "out of regard for public propriety,-'.' and the delinquent who was  caught pipe in inouth, in any place outside, his own homo or the house of a  friend, was punished by a fine of- two  thalors; if repealed, the offence was expiated by a term in prison.  The old Kaiser Wilhclin, whose cigars  were especially made for him in Havana, smoked nothing but, a pipe when  on his hunting trips. Thc Emperor's  pipe was guarded by an important functionary, if was a fine piece ,of workmanship, dun to the skill of a turner  who worked from a pattern sketched by  the Kaiser's own hands. In tho centre  of the meerschaum head of the pipe  stood a ulaek grouse oi: chiseled silver,  perched, wings spread, ou a bough. On  the stem of the pipe was a W formed  from brilliant pebbles -found in the stomachs of grouse. The Kaiser stuffed his  pipe with tobacco mixed with tho sweet  leaves of certain frees noted for, their  odors. The-pipe gave out great, clouds  of fragrant smoke.  One pipe that will not figure in any  collection is tho pipe that- used to be  smoked by the Shah of Persia, who lost  his throne recently. Tt descended to its  present owner from his father, who received if from his-brother. This ornamental object is set with diamonds aud  rubies valued at approximately $000,000.  When the Shah was not using it the.  pipe was guarded by one of the court  officials -night and-day, since a Grand  Vizier was caught when ho was, as he  supposed, alone, making attempts to  pick out some of thc-jewels-with thc  tine point of his poniard.  as to  anything  t'o "  ���������������������������  nothing further than   thoy could  in  tho note  which  he  had  pinned  tiom  ���������������������������nt the  "lie re's  match  was  something  liglirod.  mighty  tunny  *.:u.i th'- deti-ftivc  ~ure onough  (built t Vis busii'f  ;o himself.

Should ho confide in  this stranger? Sullivan seemed to road  his doubt, and paid:  - "You don't need-to tell-me anything  unless you want to, But 1 may tell  you that I'm on this case in the service of Mrs. Hopkins, and intend pushing it lo tho end. So, any help you can  give tno will lie bettor for all concerned, I believe."  " Ton say that, Mrs. Hopkins has engaged you to traeo hor husband?" asked the Doan, greatly surprised.

Sxtremely severe in design and only possible for a woman  vith a good figure, this is one of the smartest street costumes  if the season.  *    *    #  For afternoon, velvet, corduroy and velveteen street cos-  Mimes are extremely fashionable, but there are also some of  ���������������������������loth   of  elaborate  design, with   braiding,  embroidery  and  party's views.  Hi's chief instruments are the Naval  Lords of the Admiralty led by the "First  Sea Lord, who is his adviser, touching all matters relating to the efficiency  of the navy as a fighting machine, lie  nas the right to appoint officers to positions of second in command, and in effect largely influences all other appointments. Should the readiness of-the fleet  for war on its mobilization ever fail in  emergency, his would be the supreme  responsibility. His understudy is the  Second Sea Lord, who must be ready  to step into his shoes if required. IEis  special responsibility'is for the manning of the ships and the training of  the sailors, and. he may make appointments up to the rank of navigating officer. We then come to the'-Third Sea  Lord, wnoso duty is the control of shipbuilding, tho designs of'the ships, their  progress and completion as well as the  provision of guns and machinery. Below these a junior lord is in charge of  transport and 'coaling, a civil lord of  contracts and building, while a permanent secretary deals with.the staff of the  department, and a parliamentary secretary with finance.

Thus,  ono admiral commands the Nore at the  month of the Thames, the east coast and  the  coast  of  Scotland;   another   keeps  watch and ward in the Channel, and so  on, encircling the entire British Islands.  Pot all his ability as admiial, such an  officer's   success   depends greatly upon  the  "captains  courageous''  who  command his ships.   A captain's authority,  nower "and~ responsibility,   especially"  when in charge of a hie ship, altogether  transcend   those   of   a   colonel  in  tho  army.   In a vessel carrying say 800 men,  all confined within a small space, adamantine discipline is indispensiblo.    The  captain afloat therefore maintains the  state of an  almost sacred autocrat���������������������������a  soil of Dalai Llama of the sea���������������������������living  and  mossing alone apart from  all  his  subordinates.    Acting through his first  lieutenant or commander, he is responsible   that   the   King's   regulations   or  admiralty   instructions    are    observed  throughout his ship.    His further promotion to admiral is determined by seniority, and he may remain a captain for  fifteen or sixteen years.  The commander's life is no bed of  roses. He must bo in touch with everything that happens on the ship. Not a  detail of the huge and complicated man-  of-war must escape his notice. Uis work  demands sleepless vigilance, for upo/,  his ability to discharge his duties de  ponds his promotion to the rank of cap  lain after six or eight years.

Enderby  One of the' most important movements to which the provincial government is giving particular attention,  is that looking to the improvement  oi our dairies, and that means purer  milk. In the tests made last year by  the provincial dairy judges, the G-len-  garrack Dairy, from which nearly all  the milk used- in Enderby is served,  came out second-best in competition  with all the dairies in the province.  This year Mr. - McQuarrie is exerting  even greater care, and is hoping to  have the top-notch dairy in the province when the next examinations are  made by the Department judges..  The great importance of the purity  of our milk is being understood better to-day   than   ever   before.     This  problem,    which   more ���������������������������   particularly  concerns the people of the towns and  cities,  was well   handled by Mrs. T.  G. Gibson, organizer of the Women's  Ins.titntesJn^ this .province,,. in_an_ ad:  dress delivered some time ago.     "If  we can get the homes of this country  to take up    three   purities���������������������������pure air,  pure water    and   pure milk���������������������������I guarantee that    we   would cut the death  rate, not in two, but to a very small  fraction of    what   it is at present,"  said she.      "There are a great many,  people who are living entirely in the  past.     They "are living' on" thcir~fore-  fathers, or largely on what they have  accomplished.       Then   there    arc   a  great many   people   living jn the future.     Why are they not doing it today ?     They are going to do it tomorrow, or next week, or next year.  They are always    going to do something.     The    future   never comes to  those people.   The only thing we have  to do with at present is 'the present,  and if we do that the future will take  care of   itself.        Whatever good we  can do in this matter of purities, let  it be done now."  the government. It is politically axio-  mic that there is danger usually in  large majorities. The opportunities  latent in the possession of such undisputed control of the powers of  government are apt to invite carelessness in administration if the con-  troling power be not animated by  the true spirit of statesmanship and  recognition of responsibility. That,  happily for British Columbia, Premier  McBride is sincerely and conscientiously devoted to thc one principle���������������������������  of ruling wisely and carefully in the  interests of the country and its people who have placed their faith in  him was demonstrated more clearly  than ever before by bis consistently  maintained course throughout the  parliamentary session just closed.  The cleanliness and economy, as  well as sagacity and thoroughness,  displayed in all the legislation put  through this session, fully sustains  the high estimate put upon Premier  McBride's capacity as a leader, and  gives sound reason for the faith held  by the people in him and his ministers. Not so much as a breath of  scandal or suspicion has been heard  against him.  Calmly and sanely, the Premier and  his associates in government placed  upon the statute book, during the  session just ended such legislation as  tbe rights and interests of the individual citizen have long-been calling  for,'and which only a strongly-entrenched administration would dare  initiate or could hope to carry  through���������������������������laws for placing within the  reach of the poorest facilities for securing the best technical as well as  elementary education���������������������������laws for tbe  protection of the lives, the limbs, the  health and the property of the workers in factories, in the mine, in the  logging or construction camp, and of  the servants or users of the railways  or tramlines���������������������������laws for safeguarding  the users of highways against reckless  motorists���������������������������laws for the diminution of  the evils admittedly arising through  the misuse of alcoholic liquor and for  strict regulation of the sale and use  of intoxicants and prescribing a  higher-standard of Provincial hotel  accommodation���������������������������laws for the termination of railroad chafter-mongering���������������������������  laws for the prevention of the maladministration of trust'funds and insurance moneys���������������������������laws for the conservation, for the people's benefit, of the  people's heritage���������������������������such laws, in fact,  as, in their total, constitute the essential policy of the highest truly  democratic statesmanship < and epitomize the ultimate objective of all  true reformers.  Such laws as these could only be  enacted with a government in power  sincerely devoted to the people's interests and with so substantial a majority behind it as to be proof  against all possible machinations,;  intrigues/.or influence of cliques or  corporations.

C., March 6���������������������������With the  lusty chorusing of the well-beloved  National Anthem by the assembled  legislators, the second session of the  twelfth parliament of British Columbia ended Wednesday afternoon last,  with more than customary suggest-  iveness of thc developing democracy  of the times in ' the exceedingly informal character of the prorogation  ceremonies. The galleries held hut a  few scattering groups of casually interested onlookers; the members were  at their appointed desks in strictly  work-a-day garb and with the business-like air naturally attaching itself to seven weeks of uninterrupted  activity in the consideration of laws  and policies for the public good. The  list of bills assented, no fewer than  78 in number, in itself further emphasizes the strenuous nature of the  expired session, and His Honor's entry and his closing address to parliament were unostentatious, terse and  practical���������������������������the scene in its entirety  offering striking contrast to the" brilliantly spectacular formalities incident to the 'assembling of the legislature on January 12th.  By. curious chance, the closing was  participated in exclusively by members supporting the government and  its policy, this being the first, occasion in British Columbia's political  history upon which the representative of the Sovereign has taken leave  of any parliament displaying no Op-,  position complexion; most probably,  too, an occurrence without parallel in  any Canadian province.' As for the  Socialists, Messrs. Hawthornthwait  and Williams/"it" has long been their,  practice. thus to assert the revolutionary "principles" for- which ; they  ostensibly _stand," by discourteously  withdrawing from the'Chamber on all'  occasions of -His Honor's, official  visits;.

According to this  estimate, dating from fhe time when the  .waters of tho great deep condensed to  form oceans, tlio minimum age of the  earth is one hundred million years.  Sir Archibald Ocikie calculates the  age oT the earth by the time occupied  in the forming of the stratified or sedi  nieutary layers of the terrestrial crust.  Judging the formations-of thc remote  past by relatively recent formations, he  declares that a period of between thirty  centuries 'and two hundred centuries  must have passed during the formation  of every depth of a metre; the 'time  having; varied according,to the composition of the strata. Admitting that estimate, if the total thickness of all the  strata is 30,000 metres, as it is supposed  to bo, betweeu ninety million aud six  hundred million years were consumed in  the course of the earth's stratification.  But science gives another way tc estimate the age of the earth." On the  earth's surface there is a very sensible  compensation between the heat that thc  sun sends us and the heat that the terrestrial crust loses by radiation from  its surface .toward cold and infinite  space. While the crust is losing by  radiation, the centre of the earth is  slowly but incessantly cooling, and, as  it cools, gradually contracting. The  contraction causes the centre to recede  or slip away from the surface of the  crust, and the crust, no longer supported by the centre, sinks here and there,  forming folds similar 16 the wrinkles on  a withered apple. Those folds or  wrinkles aro the mountain chains. The  total superficies of the mountain chains  constitutes about 1 \t< per cent, of the  total surface of the globe. This fact  leads to the inference that the radius  of the earth has shrunk a little less than  one hundredth of its primitive length.  Thc contraction of the-earth's centre  corresponds to a cooling of about three  hundred degrees.  According to this calculation, at least  one hundred millions of years, and at  most, two thousand millions of years,  must havo passed since the water condensed on the surface of the solid crust.

I  was so bau I could not do much work.  A neighbor came along who had been  troubled the same way, and advised  me to try Dodd's Kidney Fills. I did  it. I. bought two boxes, and, using  them according to directions, was soon  able to go to work."  .Notice one thing: It was a neighbor  who had been trouolcd in the same way  who advised the postmaster to use  Dodd's Kidney Pills. He also had been  cured by them. That's why he recommended  them.  If you're troubled with Kidney Disease  in  any  form  tisin,  betes.

I  DP to within a few years ago there  existed a vast difference between  the class of trainers - and horses  that raced down the Urand Circuit, and  over the mile trucks generally, and  tlitise whose racing was limited to the.  half-mile . I racks and county fair ��������������������������� circuits.  With small pur.ses and eaily closing  events, long ships between meetings  and poor tracks to race over, the trainer who was forced to make the annual  strenuous campaign over the two-lap  tracks, was not held iu very high regard by his more capable and oftentimes'only more fortunate fellow trainer. The latter, with horses of more  quality and class, was racing for big  purses over good mile tracks, where  the general conditions were more conducive toward making his profession  not only a more remunerative, but also  a more pleasant one.  The mile track owners and trainers,  and .horsemen generally, were pretty  apt to refer to the half-miler as a  "bush driver." and in scanning over  fhe Gentry lists of thc Grand Circuit  meetings, one rarely reads of a half-  mile track trainer'or horse.  But all this has boon changed. The  progress which has. marked the breed''  ing and development and training methods of'the trotter and pacer during the  past ten years, has wrought many radical changes iu the formerly despised  .haJf-miler.  Enterprising horsemen have organized  half-mile track circuits whose itineraries include large cities with direct  and easy ships each successive week.  Good tracks, first-class stabling, facilities and efficient secretaries are now in  e\ideuce, while liberal purses and $500  to .'j>'2,"'00 early closing events are features at scores of half-mile track "and  county fair meetings.  The up-to-date fair managers have  learned that while machinery hall, the  agricultural exhibits, thc horse and cattle departments, and fhe noisy midway,  arc necessary features for a successful  fair, thc real magnet' that draws the  money at the gate and makes thc "rest  of the fair grounds a scene of desolation in the afternoon, is the racetrack with its spirited trotting and  pacing contests. The speed program  was long neglected, but as fair date-  clashed and competition for entries br  came keener, better tracks and stable:-  with more attractive purses and stakor  became ihe rule.  All this led up io a better class oJ  trainers and horses being drawn to th������������������  half-mile tracks, and a glance over'th'  list of prominent and successful reins  men and leading money winning horse-  on the Grand Circuit the- past fev  years, shows a remarkable large, pc-7  eentage as hailing" from the half-mil-  tracks.      ���������������������������   - "  Among the leading Grand Circii"1  trainers of io-day who formerly confir-  ed their racing operations almost ei  tirely to thc two-lap ring, ean be mei  ticned Tommy ILurphv, Walter Coj  Mike McDevifV, Joe Gahagan, Dick Mr  Mahon, Charlie Dean.

WINNIPEG, MAN,  70 ENDERBY PRESS  AND  WALKER'S WEEKLY  tf  i  Patagonian Holiday  By Sam Davis  II  "    r]j*HE  idea  of  the  expedition   origin-  J      ated wilh Bobby Richards, anil lie  took no small pride in tho fact.  The word had been pasted down the  line of fashionable society that a society circus was to be pulled off in the  winter in New York which would  -iclipMi all previous efforts in that direction.  Bobby Richards ami his coterie of  friends, having made rather a poor  showing at tho last society circus, de-  terniiiiod to introduce some startling  aovolty that would cause their successful rivals of ihe previous year to sit up  mil become interested,'to say fho least.  The novelty they fixed upon was nothing Jess than half a dozen live giants,  to be captured in Patagonia and brought  bodily to- New York, where they were  to be exhibited in cages for the edification of admiring- New. York society.  It was also decided to bring nothiug  back from the lower end of the continent which measured less than ,,oight  feet from bead to heel. Any giant who  jould not qualify to eight feet in his  bare soles would not be considered eligible.  The, cencml idea of thc" giants of  Palajronia had been gathered from falcs  of-actual travellers. Some of the par-  sies arranging to make the expedition  had frequently conferred with sea-captains on the subject, and Mr. Richards  '" was quite positive that he would be  -ible to bring back a native Patagonian  fho would measure nine feet or better.  Dick Weed, George Ungar,' Charlie  Calhoun, and Madison Squires had been  ipproached ou thc subject, and all had  ���������������������������igreed that such a trip should be made  without delay, and with a steam-yacht.  Of course, the trip and its objects  was fo be kept a profound secret, and  thc clearance from New York must be  made in the most mysterious manner  possible.  This was easily accomplished. They  ^ave out that they were going to Neva-  . da to investigate a gold mine, aud tho  next day they slipped away in thc chartered yacht, and the-Great "White Way  .mew them "no more for sometime.  It was indeed a merry voyage to the  . southward,  past'thc  historic shores  of  Florida, and dowu the eastern eoastxof  South  America, "with -a line of  empty  chainpagne   bottles   in   fhe   wake   that  would  easily have enabled  a.pursuing  .:raft to-keep their trail, had any craft  been; so disposed.       " ��������������������������� .   '   -  -."   Of, course lucre was a_ great, deal of  iiscussion- on the way clown as to the  'proper   method   of   securing   giants , in  Patagonia.    .' -      '',**���������������������������-    ���������������������������  '---. -Jlr,- Richards   regarded,- the .plan , of  .capturing them in traps, such as used  "to be employed-when-catching bears in  - California','' as about thc best way; but  Mr. Weed,, who hud been out West-him;  'self," insisted  that  catching   them    ou  - horseback with hi lariat was'easier,-and  'by'this method you eould size up'your  ijiaufc, and "not trust to luck, as you  might have to do in trapping.  - -..Sir. Squires, however, took a different  view.  ' "Do you follows ever think far a  minute that a lot of undersized aud inexperienced   young  men. like   ourselves  - would make much of a fist naming about  iu that country gathering in giants by  .. force1?"  lie glanced about the group as he  said this, and the group looked itself  over. Then it suddenly dawned on those  men that there was no one in tlie lot  . much over five feet,high,"and they never  looked so distressingly diminutive- as  just at that particular time. ���������������������������  ��������������������������� In the "general hilarity that physical  fact had uot impressed particularly upon' the adventurers who wero ploughing  the seas in search of material for that  society circus.to come off in New York.  "We certainly are pretty   close    to  ^thc=dwarf^class,^TOnaiik(i(U^  'but, that being the case, our achievement in capturing a collection of giants  will be so much more spectacular, you  know.''  "Of course, we could do it all right,  by reason of bur superior intelligence,''  said Ungar; "but 1 want to put myself  on record right here that I will not  ���������������������������stand for any violence."  "That's my idea exactly. I am willing to pav those fellows a fair salary  "to appear," but Twill never allows giant  to be torn from thc bosom of his family  in tho dead of night or any other old  time. Would such a course be square���������������������������  would it be honest?'' said Jlr. Calhoun  in a most decisive way.  "My'sentiments exactly/' remarked  ���������������������������"ovcral in a breath.  "Whatever we do, we must not ro-  rloct on thc society in which wc move  when at home," said Mr. Richards, and  ill hands echoed the sentiment.  Having agreed on this point, they  :racked a few bottles of champagne to  jmphasize tuo harmony which prevailed.  One morning the skipper informed  them that Patagonia was iu sight, and  they cracked somo more bottles on thc  strength of this, sang some more songs,  md got ready to land.  If was late at night when they got  ihoir belongings off the vessel. They  ���������������������������vere quite "astonished to find that thc  iiotel not far from the dock was really  i very comfortable hostelry.  At'dinner that evening'they settled  in   the   plan  of  gathering  iu  about  a  lozon   "'iants   and    oll'ering     them     a  straight salary  for their appearance in  ^ew York.  There   was  some   question   of   inter-  lational  difficulties  which, might  aiihe  n ciihc they landed in New York with  i  lot of pauport,, and   the   contract-la-  ior law and a fuw other things might  ;ome   into   the   game,   but   these   were  irnshed  aside as  irrelevant,  and  oceu-  ik'd  little space in the discussion.  Later they had a talk with the land-  ord,   who   could   speak   English,   and  vere delighted to learn  that the country about there was literally alive with  ,'iants that could be had at reasonable  ���������������������������ntes for cash; but it took real money to  landlc such a proposition.  Next morning thoy found themselves  noving about tho streets amid a popu-  ation mostly seven feet high, with here  ind   there men  who  could  claim  eight  'oet a iu. "el away with it.  ".lust the, cheese!" thought the ama-  '.eur hunters" of giants.  There happened to be a county fair  >r something of that kind in  progress,  and there was a large, crowd of suburbanites in town, all bent on seeing'the  sights and enjoying themselves.  Tt  now   appeared* an   easy   thing  to  get all the giants they wanted, for if  seemed as if the streets of- thc city in  which they found themselves were choked with them.  One man in particular attracted their  attention.     He   was   easily   eight  feet  high, and splendidly proportioned.    He  could not speak English, and they approached him,through an interpreter.  This functionary made it plain to him  that he was wanted in New York to live  in a cage for a week and pose as a curiosity from his .native country and astonish the' people of Manhattan Island.  Per this he was to receive a salary, and  all-he had to do was to name it.-  Tho giant seemed a little puzzled -at  first,  but  finally  appeared" to  be quite  impressed, and, after a lot of talk exchanged, agreed to consider thc matter  that-evening if they would, call with the  interpreter-at  his  homo , to 'discuss  it  more at length.  Everything was getting on swimmingly, and the New Yorkers were impatient  to go and close the bargain. -  At eight o'clock in the evening, with  the- interpreter,  they  entered  a  large,  qucerly  built* house,  where, they   were  soon lalking business with tho giant.  lie listened to the proposition of the  New Yorkers,-'the price] and the things  giauts had to,do in .New York.    They  talked the matter over- about ten'min-  utes.' when  there  was a" sudden  interruption. /     -' ----- -   '   -r  /.The giant they swere abouL to. engage  gave a long, peculiar whistle," and ."in  came-a lot more giants, who," with little  or no ceremony) grabbed the travelling  representatives of the Gotham Society-  Circus,''and in a few minutes'had them  all bound and trussed.and were'lugging  them out'into the "darkness.  " Jt was.meless to make any"fuss, but  the captives naturally had to make a  little uoise, and their protests were answered by" some heavy thumps ou the  head. When thoy recovered their senses  all hands found themselves huddled together in large wicker cages with bamboo bars in front.     - . j  Before them swarmed a crowd o_f people, who took the most "remarkable.interest in their appearance.  " There was a placard in front of the  cage, and Bobby "Richards reached out  and dragged it .in.   " -    _    *"  The rest of the boys had recovered  their-senses by-this time, and he held  it up and read it. "  Tt was printed in two languages,- English and Patagonian.    The English part  of it read:  COME -AND SEE THR MANHATTAN  ,,           DWARFS!  The only ones ever captured alive, now  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������. ~��������������������������� oiu.evxhibJ tion.-   At night they were taken out and allowed tu sleep in a sort, of shed under  the eyes ol uvu keepers, after having  been fed some abominable, food, which  they had to accept or go without.  The next day was a repetition of the  first, and they had to sit on then  haunches and grind their teeth while  the heartless crowd came and went and  poked them with slicks and threw them  nuts ana fruit, as it' they were mon  keys.  The paper published by the management of the street carnival treated theni  very nicely with the pre&s notices. One  read as follows:  '' A *\' O V I" L A TT R A OT ION!"  "During ihe past week one of the  greatest novelties on the Midway Iium  been the collection of Manhattan Dwarfs  secured by the live management of the  Street Carnival. These little fellows  aro certainly ihe genuine aiticle, and  afford no end of ainusemenl bv their  cunning little tricks and diminutive  size. They arc the smallest specimens  of humanity over brought to these  shores. They come from a small island in the United States, near a place  called Hell Gate, in New York, in the  Province of Tammany. This concession  has taken in a deal of money, and draw  a great many people in from the country who were loath to believe that such  diminutive being really existed, except  in the wild imagination of travellers.  Next wek they will be taken into the  interior."  "So we're booked for a tour in the  country, are we?" remarked Ungar.  No one else made any comment. Thc  prospect seemed beyond discussion, and  so it turned out.o  Thc miserable prisoners were removed from the street carnival at the close  of thc exhibifiou and taken, cage and  all, some twenty miles into the country,  where they were exhibited at another  country fair. They were lugged about  to fairs and racing meets and all sorts  of public gatherings, and then taken  down the coast again.  Everywhere they created fhe greatest  interest and proved a bonanza for their  managers. Their hair aud beards grew*,  and they got tremendously dirty and  ill-tempered. Although they .planned  various methods of eseape, they were  too'well guarded to carry them into execution.  /'What' would Fifth' Avenue, say if  the boys happened to stray in here and  see us?'-' remarked Calhoun ono day.  As^he spoke Bobby .Richards gave a  start.  "Look there, quid"! If there ain't  Joe Farquhar in tho crowd,"  They all looked in the' direction of  Bobbie's pointed fiugor and beheld Far-  quliar, on whoso arin'leaned uo'-less a  person than Miss Geraldiue Fisk.  . They'iwere all glad to "see Joe, but to  think of Miss Fisk strolling up to that  cage! The pair sauntered up; nevertheless, and .stood-looking at the Manhattan Dwarfs as the, spieler continued vJ;o  extol" their attractions. ,They came up  close, "and., while .- they -;were" standing  there,,--open mouthed .-and., astonished,  Bobby 'Richards"_put his hand', through  the. bars and san g 'onI:  Did Not Know Them  ���������������������������* *.vv"wnr*  A cough is often the forerunner of  serious pulmonary afllicfions, yet there  is a simple euro within the reach of all,  Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup, an  old-time and widely recognized remedy,  which if resorted to at the inception of  n cold, will invariably give relief, and  by overcoming the trouble, guard the  system from any serious consequences.

Here they were on exhibition themselves, and regarded as a veritable curiosity. The natives crowded up, and the  spicier bawled out to the spectators tho  information that they were tho greatest snaps in thc midway! llvcryonc was  invited to come forward and see the  human" curios���������������������������only~a"dinic"for the~lot.  There was a little gateway not 'far  from thc front of the cages, and a native was there taking the admission  fee.  Thore was a regular crush at tho  gate when it was known that the dwarfs  were awake nnd moving around. The  crowd pressed up against tho cage, poked them up with sticks, threw peanuts  and fruit inside the cage, and cracked  jokes.  Presently it occurred to the captives  that thoy had on very littlo clothes.  Their fashionable Gotham attire had  been taken olf, and they were practically nude, barring some breech-clouts.  " "Say,    boys,"   remarked     Richards,  "but this is about thc limit."  "Ten cents to see the four of us, and  kids   half-price,"  growled   Dick  Weed.  The others were too disgusted to talk  at all, and wdien the crowd saw how  I hey sulked they got long sticks and  stirred them up good and plenty. This  sent them into a rage. They fought  and sputtered, and their antics sent the  spectators into convulsions of merriment,. The boys especially enjoyed the  affair, and threw stale vegetables and  nuts and a few stones into the cage.  lt was a hot afternoon. Thc sun  beat down on the cage and the inmates  soon wero begging pitcously for water,  It was given them by the keeper in a  sort of trough, but they were glad  enough to drink it, and finally became  so hungry that they ate the fruit that  was'thrown'in, and some of the vegetables came iu handy also.  ' "Hallo, joe Farquhar, is that you?"  "Suffering,Moses) Bob, _how did you  get here, and who are these fellows with  you?", replied thc shocked .tourist."  At .this all hands- put their paws  through the bar's and greeted both Farquhar and Miss Fisk. Tho.latter nearly  fainted, b.ut. presently recovered sufficiently to extend a.hand of welcome.  . "This is our bridal tour,"'remarked  Farquhar, .and there were fresh congratulations. - Then all had'a.long chat,  and it ended by Farquhar agreeing to  get the captives out that night.  He came back iu an hour with a fine  saw-and passed it into the cage. Also  a lot of enloroform;   *        ;  -<  "Dose your keepers to-uight and I  will wait on the outside," he instructed. .    ��������������������������� ,     . ,  It must have becu about three.o'clock  in the morning wheu the last bar of the  grated window of thc sleeping shed was  sawed. The two guards had been properly chloroformed, aud .the rest was  easy.  Bursting away from the shed, the  ���������������������������ipiartet���������������������������niadc-a=diish=f or���������������������������liber'ry-j===-l:,-ar���������������������������  quhar was waiting, and led thc way to  the beach, where his launch was ready.  On the way down some shots rang  out, but no one was hit. As the New  Yorkers scrambled into the launch a lot.  of natives were close upou their heels,  and they fired some more shots Avith  no "effect, and the little craft dashed  away for the steam-yacht.  "Where in thunder is our yacht?"  asked Richards.  ""I" gifess" they~ha"vo "confiscated"it;"  remarked - Farquhar. "You see, these  Patagoniuns have somo law that con-,  iiscates vessels bringing freaks into the  country without paying a heavy duty,"  Once on board, with steam up, the  propeller was soon churning thc water,  and day was coming ou as thoy made  for the open sea. Behind was a boat  bearing pursuers. They came within  range and fired some muskets. Farquhar stepped up to a little howitzer in  the stern and trained it on the boat.  "Lot  'em have it!" cried everyone.  "Bang:"  The'shot lifted the Patagonian boat  and its crew out of the water, and tbe  sharks got busy at once. This was the  last of tho giant country and its wild  ways.  Farquhar got out, his wardrobe, and  the Manhattan Dwarfs got into his  clothes. They had to turn up fhe bottoms of- their pants about a foot, and  also the sleeves of the coats, but the  misfits were a great improvement on  the costume of the cages at the Midway.  They had a pleasant voyage, but they  did not reach iVcav York in time to see  the society circus. They also swore Farquhar and his wife to secrecy, but the  story got. out some way.

Editor The Enderby Press:  Sir: What about a ' Berry Show  this year 1 -The last two years the  ladies have held one in an amateur  and tentative way, in the hope that  the idea might be taken up and a  small horticultural society formed to  work the thing on a proper business-  particularly Ilike footing"       There have 1)een com"  plaints that it was arranged to suit  the few, and was intended ta be confined to members of the English  church, etc., etc., both of which  statements, I need hardly say, were  without foundation, as the circulars  sent out at the time asking for exhibits from anyone within the postal  district of Enderby, will prove.  It is, of course, difficult to fix a  date for. a berry and vegetable show,  except at very short notice, as sometimes, especially with the former, the  season promises to be late and then a  sudden change of weather will bring  things on with amazing rapidity.  Therefore the only way to arrange  it is to give particulars of a show to  be given and then to fix the date  dftfinitcly as soon as it' is possible to  do so.  Enderby is, I believe, the only town  of its size in the Valley that has no  Fall'Show. If a Horticultural" Society-were formed it could arrange for  this, which in other places proves an  attraction, an advertisement and a  source of revenue to the town.  We have now a most flourishing  poultry association;    why  should  we  inot  have'a  society.  . <������������������><'>3>$xS><������������������><SxS><$*S^  Fred. H.

Dairymen's Association, the directors  decided to divide the Farm Dairy  competition which has already been  in progress for one year, into two  classes, in order that a number of  -our--smaller--dair-ymen=in=thc^Erov.ince,  may have a chance to compete for  the cup, medals and honors, and not  be compelled to compete against the  larger dairies of thc Province, thus  giving the small man an equal chance  with the large one. In this matter  tho directors are making arrangements for a cup, the name of which  will be published later, but one  which will be of equal importance to  that of the larger trophy given by  the Provincial Government. They  arc also giving three medals corresponding with those of thc larger  dairies.
