Please  There is 'little mining work being  done in Hedley camp, Similkameen,  other than that on the Heelley Gold  Mining Co.'s property. One exception  is the New York No. 2 Syndicate,  which is operating two diamond drills,  capable of drilling to a depth of 2,500  ft. Both water and compressed air  are conveyed from the Hedley Gold  Mining Co.'s mine, the pipe lines being each about 5,000 ft. long. The  claims in which the drilling is being  done are held by the syndicate under  option of purchase. The object of the  work is to prove whether or not the  Nickel Plate ore bodies extend into  the ground being drilled.  At the Hedley Gold Mining Co.'s  Nickel Plate mine, the greater part of  the work is being done from No. 4 adit  level , and to facilitate operations  buildings are being erected near the  portal of this tunnel. A new blacksmith and machine shop���������a wood  frame building roofed with corrugated  galvanized iron, dimensions 95 by 35  it.���������has been erected, and this is being equipped with all necessary power-  tools and other mechanical appliances  and plant. Another building includes  store anil warehouse, the former 50  by 35 ft., and two storeys high, and the  latter a single-s'torey compartment,  90 by 35 ft. Ground is being graded  for a building to comprise cook house,  dining room, wash rooms for men,  recreation room, etc., to be of similar  construction to above-mentioned  buildings and to provide accommodation for about 150 men.  Last year's development and diamond drill work having warranted  the estimate that the minimum quality  of reserve ore available in the company's Nickel Plate and Iron Duke  claires. was _13,000-tons ,of an. average,  value of at least $11.35 per ton,  another incline shaft known as the  Dickson incline, is.being sunk to mine  the new ore bodies then developed and  others also below the level of No. 4  adit of the Nickel Plate mine. This  incline is being sunk to the northwest  on the pitch of the lowest known ore  body in the'mine. The intention is to  sink it to a depth of 3,000 ft. It is so  situated as to be under all the ore  bodies and will.have pay ore above it  continuously for 1,100 ft.  No. 5 incline has been sunk, in the  same direction as the Dickson, to a  depth of 420 ft. and four levels have  been opened from it. There are in  this part of the mine three known ore  bodies lying directly one above the  other, and this incline has been sunk  in the middle one. Drifting and sinking have proved the ore to be about  16 ft. between walls, and its'average  value is $14 a ton. At the collar of  the incline the length of the ore shoot  is 130 ft.; at the 100-ft. level it has  been drifted on ISO ft., and on the  .hil-cl level 120 ft. These drifts are  in good ore all the way, and their  faces, as well as the bottom of the incline, are in ore. This incline is in  favorable condition for ore shipping,  with ore pockets on each level and  plenty of good ground for stoping.  No work is being done in the company's Sunnyside mine, owing to lack  of power, nearly all available being  used in connection with operations  in the Nickel Plate mine. Some time  since the company made application  for water rights on Similkameen river,  but it has not yet been able to secure  the water rights on Similkameen  river, but purposes, owing to other  applicants, stated to be only speculators and not bona fide operators,  having forestalled it and so prevented  it this year carrying out its plans for  important extensions of its mining  and milling operations.  The quality of ore crushed during  five months of 1913, to June 1, was  29,1S0 tons and the value of the recovered gold $377,4S3.14. This gives  <in average recovery of $12,936 a ton,  as compared with $10.IS a ton for 27,-  936 tons crushed during the corresponding period of 19.12, and with  $10.62 a ton for 70,455 tons crushed  during the whole of 1912. Assuming  that the total costs were not higher  than for 1912, when they averaged  $5.14 a ton, it would appear as if the  net profit for the five expired months  of 1913 has been at an average rate  of approximately $7.S0 a ton.  Even A'aiii-ouver Admits tlmt Little- is  Known  There .of Jlniing l>i>-  rcIo'Miienl    ������f    the  Province.  British    Columbia's    large    mining-  companies   are   getting   more   active,  and if they extend their holdings and  enlarge    their    operations    this    will  serve to attract ,moi:e money for mining propositions.   - Greater  activity  is  apparent in the boundary, in the Similkameen, and.up the coast where the  Granby Company s. expending two or  three  million  dollars   at  Observatory  Inlet.    The  British Columbia  Copper  Company,  which  has  a  big plant at  Greenwood, will take up its bond on  the  V'oight properties in the Similkameen,   which  is   an .indicaton   of  the  mineral resources of that district.    It  is remarkable how little one hears of  the  interior  of  the   province.     Were  it not for the mining men who  come  out every once in a while information  as   to   what   is 'going   on   would   be  scarce.   The 'British Columbia Copper  Company spent much money diamond  drilling in the Similkameen, and the  report is that is proposes to erect a  concentrator   near   Princeton,   B.   C.  The   owners   of  the   Nickel  Plate  at  Hedley are also extending their holdings and have in prospect the further-  acquisition of claims  adjoining their  property.  Freight rates are heavy in British  Columbia and these have had the ef-  feet to retard the development of the  smaller claims. Under existing conditions, a concentrator is necessary  at a mine, since shipments of raw ore  cannot be made owing to the excessive  charges. That is one of the reasons  why only the larger companies are  really active. ���������.  ���������  Mr. AV. S. Edwards, of Toronto, a  large shareholder in. the Dome mine  and Dome Extension, in the Porcupine  has" taken over tL^ Sv.rf Inlet gold,  mine on Princess Royal Island, owned  by Vancouver people. Nine claims and  a waterpower are included in the  property.���������Monetary Times.

HAS NEW SECRETARY  The Bank of British America announce the appointment of Mr. Jackson Dodds to be secretary of .the bank,  with' headquarters at London, England, in succession to Mr. A. G. Wallis  who retires on pension, after a service  of 46 years, during 32 of which, he  filled the post of secretary.  Mr. Dodds,. who is the third son of  Jackson Dodds, sr., for many years  collector for Inland Revenue for the  city of London, was born in 1SS1 and  educated at the city of London school.  After 4 years service at the London,  England branch of Comptoir Nation-  ale d'Escompte de Paris, he entered  thet service of the Bank of British  North America in February 1901, at  Halifax. He was subsequently stationed at the Montreal, Ottawa, Brandon, and Darlingford branches. In  1907 he was appointed manager at  Reston, Man., and in 1909 assistant  manager at Vancouver. In February  1911 he was appointed assistant secretary at London.  Mr. Dodds, who is well known on  this side of the water, was recently  in Canada and paid a visit to the most  impo'rtant branches of the bank.  GENERAL NEWS  A serious colliery explosion in Penn-  sylvania which caused the* death of 19  anel forest fin-si in Quebec were the  disasters of the week.  Harvesting is now fairly under way  in Manitoba anel Saskatchewan anil  the crop is above the average. Manitoba is short of harvest hands.  Salmon fishermen on the coast are  out on strike and the canning industry is temporarily tied up.  Development in the Aufeas mine  near Hope- has opened up a large body  of pay ore that is claimed to resemble  identically the Nickle Plate of Camp  Heelley. It is an arsenical ore anel  carries gooel pay values in gold. The  owners believe they have- another  Nickel Plate anel claim that it is in the  same range; which .is not at all unlikely.  VICTORIA, B. C, July 27.���������The report of the provincial department of  'mines for the year ending December  31, 3 912, shows that the mineral production of the province for last year  far surpassed that of all previous  years, having reached the great sum  of $32,440,000 in value, an increase of  nearly' $9,000,000 over the preceeding  year and more than $6,000,000 over  1910, which had previously been the  banner year.  Details for the past three years'are.  Placer gold, 1910. $540,000; 1911, $426,-  000; 1912. $555,500. The placer gold is  produced almost exclusively in Atlin  and Cariboo, the former having yielded $290,000 and the latter $239,000 last  year.  Lode gold, 1910, $5,533,380; 1911,  $4,725,513; 1912, $5,322,442. Of the  product of 1912 Rossland is credited  with $2,729,949, the Boundary with  $2,167,229 and Nelson ��������� with $361,994.  About 75 per cent of this gold is obtained from the smelting and copper  ores; of the remainder $775,000 was  produced by the Nickle Plate mine at  Hedley from free milling quartz,  which yielded oh an average about $11  per ton.  Silver: 1910, $1,245,380; 1911, $95S,-  293; 1912, $1,S10,045. Most of this  silver is produced from the lead bearing ores, the Slocan district having  produced 61 per cent and the Fort  Steele mining division 12 per cent of  the yield of 1912, the remainder being  the silver-lead lead mines of Nelson  and Lardean mining division and from  the copper ores of Rossland, Boundary  and coast districts.  Lead: 1910, $1,245,016; 1911, $1,069,-  521; 1912, $1,805,657. Fort Steele led  off in 1912 in" thei production of this  metal with 40.64 per cent, Slocan following with 37.75, Ains worth with  10.S3 per cent, the remainder being  furnished by other localities, including Nelson and Lardeau mining divisions and the new mines being opened  up in the north.  Copper: 1910, $4.$71,512; 1911, $4,-  571,644; 1912, $S,405.<327. The value of  copper is got at by taking the average price for the year. The Boundary  district produced 64.70 per cent of the  yield of 1912, the Coast and Cassiar  district 30.16 and Rossland 5.03 per  cent.  Zinc:- 1910, $192,437; 1911 $129,092;  1912, $316,139. The mineralogist says:  "The various processes designed to  j separate the values of lead-zinc ores  of the Slocan which have within the  past few years, been experimented  with have not as yet reached a stage  of commercial application."  Coal: 1910, $9,S00,161; 1911, $7,675,-  717; 1912,. $9,200,814.' The tonage of  marketable coal mined in 1912 was  $2.62S,S04 tons, in addition to which  396,905 tons were made into coke  yielding 264,333 tons valued at $1,5S5,-  99S. This brings the total value of  tiie output of the collieries of the province for the year $10,7S6,S12. Tin  output of coal by districts in 1912 was  as follows: Vancouver Island, 1.55S,-  .240 tons; Nicola and Princeton 206.257  tons;  East Kootenay 1,261,212.  Dr. Orin AV. Joslin. formerly of Milwaukee, and now at Linden, Wis., assures us that we may have in the not  far distant future a process for separating all metals from the ores by  the simple elements* of common salt  and water in the presence of electricity; that no matter how many metals  are contained in thp ore, they will all  be separated at the same time and collected separately, and that when collected they will be chemically pure,  even including iron; that such a plant  can be built on an individual property  at a cost not to exceed $15,000, with a  capacity of 100 tons per day; and that  the cost of separating all of these  metals together will ��������� range from 40  cents to $1.75 per ton. The Dogeville,  AA'is., Chronicle says it awaits with  nervous anxiety some tests now being-  made "in Colorado in a locality where  at least six different metals exist within a radius of four miles;. Our nerves  are calnv. We have an advance  seventh son report on the result.���������  New York Engineering and Mining  Journal.  LOCAL NEWS  TENDERS  FOR LAST LINK  Kettle Valley   About   to   Let  Contracts  from Coquihalla Summit to Hope  A'ancouve-r. .13. C. Aug 1.���������Tenders  for the construction of the unfhiisheil  link of the Kettle 'Valley line across  Hope mountain have been invited by  President AVarrcn, according to information obtained here today. A  number of large raihvay contractors  are said to have been notified of the  eonipany's* plans anel will tender for  the work. Contracts will probably be  let at an early elate as a number eif  firms have* already inspected the route.  The section which will complete the  link between the coast anil Boundary  district, furnishing direct railway connection, is to be used jointly by the  Kettle Valley railway and the Great  Nortnerii, is about (50 miles in length  anil extends from the Coquahalla, summit to Hope.  Miss AViloox, niece of T. AVilley.  came over from Greenwootl to leinain  with them for a while. She has recently been through a seige of typhoid  fever which has been prevalent in  that town elm-inn the past-two months  and will recuperate iu the*. .Similka- ,  ineen.  Rev.   A.   H.   Cameron   on   Sunday  evening  last gave the third one of his  series  of narratives   in   reference   to  mission   work   in   which   he has   been  engaged   in   the  Canadian   we.st since  he left a prosperous well-to-tlo charge  in the province of Ontario.to   answer,  tho  Gall for-: -non for- tho -west   invtLo  "seventies".     The narrative*  given on  Sunday evening  dealt with   a tour of  inspection of all   the mission   fields of,  the  church   from   Brandon westward  to  the    Souris  coalfields   anil 'Moose','  Mountain   on the   west  and from   the  international  boundary  to the   i--ina-  dian  Pacific   railway   on    the   north.  The tour  was made in a huckboard in  the summer- of 1S&-*.    He has still another instalment  to   give    which will  deal  with mission   work  during   the  building  of the  C. P. R. in the region  north of Lake Superior anel from there  westward   to   the  Red   River   of   the  North.     The narrative is intensely interesting and shows the great, progress  that has  been made in the  years that  have intervened.    Later he will tell of  the Congress anel its work.  East  Princeton   has   applied   for. a  post office anel they feel that they cannot get it a clay too soon,as business is  very  much   retarded   by  the  present  arrangement  which compels  them  to  go to Princeton for their mail and not  get it from the  Princeton   e>ffiec until  tlie middle of tlie afternoon.    By this  time  the  train  has left Princeton an  hour on its  return   down   the  valley.  In these days when   farmers are clamoring everywhere for rural delivery of  the  mail to  their homes,   and a   community as  favorably situated  as I.ast  Piincoton   could   be  given   their  mail  with  so little  cost anel   inconvenience  to   the  department,   there   seems   no  reason why there should be any, delay.  But if we  are to judge, hy  the wanton  and unwarranted manner in which the  direct   mail  cuiniiiunication    between  Heelley and Kerenieos Centre   was cut  oil* some   time  ago.   without a   single  cent being  save to the  department or  anybody   benefitted   one   iota   by   the  change,   it  would   look   as if pressure  will have   to be  applied   higher up by  East Princeton te> get  tin's simple convenience   which    rightly    belongs   to  them.  KOUKASSA'S IDEALS.  Brother Bourassa's ideals are thus  clear. He wants Canada to be first  of all a sponge. She is to sponge for  protection on Britain, and if that won't  do she is to sponge for protection on  the Monroe Doctrine and the United  States. Lofty thoughts. AVonder how  this country would get along if all of  its   people   were   Bourassas?���������Ottawa.  I Journal. VHK HEDLEY GAZETTE, AUG 7,  1913.  ar\d  Simrlkameei- Advertiser.

In its rhapsodies on the mineral out-  ,put of British Columbia of 1912 as  shown in the annual report of the  Provincial Mines ilepartment, a telegraphic summary of which appeared  in the elaily papers,' the Nelson News  shows a disposition to be a trifle sectional. Its editorial thereon gives the  whole credit to Ivootenay anel Boundary for the impi-eived showing maele  by the province in its increaseel mineral output. Now the Gazette has no  elesire to minimize the part played by  Ivootenay and Boundary, but we do  object to the output of the Similkaineen being included in that of the  Boundary district, and the Boundary  getting the credit for the output eif the  Nickel Plate mine, with no mention  whatever made of Hedley or the Similkameen valley in that portion of  the Minister of Mines report. ,  It  i������  well  known   that the  Nelson  News and the people  of Nelson have a  very     great-   grievance    at    present  against   the   Provincial    Mineralogist  whom   they,   accuse   of   the   heinous  criine of knocking the Nelson elistrict,  because   ha   refuses   to  recognize  the  claim  made by a man   named A. Gor-  elon  French   who saiel that Platinum  anil other metals of the platinum group  were to be found in conini_r<;ial quantities in certain elike rocks eai the Gran-  ite-Poorman   claim in   the Nelson district.     The Provincial mineralogist, in  that case,   as it was his  duty  to do,  took steps to  investigate the accuracy  of  the claim   made  by this  man, and  the evidence which he submits to show  that it was without proper t'oimelation  in fact, appears to   be very conclusive.  In other words the Nelson News and  the people of Nelson in that case want  the Provincial Mineralogist to say that  a certain thing is  so when he has submitted very gooel evidence to the effect  that it is  not so; but  the News is pre-  pareel to  back him   up in his fraud on  the Similkaineen  Valley  as a whole  and  on   Camp  Heelley  in  particular,  when he makes that portion of his report say that Camp Hedley is in the  Boundary elistrict, for he  practically  says that when he gives the Bounelary  district   credit   each    year    for   the  ���������amount of gold produced by the Nickel  Plate  mine.    This  he has  been doing  year by  year for the  past eight years  through sheer innate enssedness.

Further particulars will doubtless materialize in the society columns of the  Vancouver elailies.  The results of the high school exams,  have been published and they show  that the Hedley candidates fared  rather badly. They have not their  marks as ' yet but doubtless most of  them have an idea of where the weak  spots in their armor lay.  Word was receiveel in town that Dr.  Whillans is making satisfactory recovery in Glasgow from the recent illness which he hael there,- He was op-  erateel on for appenelicitis and when  they operateel on him it was discovered that an internal tumor hael also to  be removeel. .,  A couple of mining superiritenelents,  Alacdonald anel Biesel well, known in  British Columbia were siezed by  Alexican troops and thrown into  prison.

The Okanagan Printers' Guild is  meeting at Penticton to-morrow.  This is the first time the meeting has  been held so far south as Penticton  anel as the Guilel includes offices in the  Siniilkameen as well, the Similkameen  scribes are in hopes that they may be'  able to crawl out of their burrows long  enough at a spell to go over and get  the cobwebs brushed away. The benefit tei be derived from the interchange  sf ieleas on occasions of this kind  imply repays for the time taken.  Cecil G. Fennell, Al. E., in behalf of  it. Louis capitalists, reached Heelley  >n Saturday last and at once left for  rtiordan Mountain where he examined  he Billy Goat and other claims in  hat vicinity which were under option  uring the early part of the summer  nd is now under short extension of  he same. Should tlie sampling be  tvorable it is understood that a work-  lg bond will be given, as that is the  nly way mining capitalists nowadays  re elisposed to treat with owners for  re purchase of mining property.  According to information received  from Louis Gooelehap, in reference to  further developments in the matter of  the conduct of giune warelens iu  searching bis house and also in reference to his fire warelenship, it would  appear that the government are not  being helped very much by the action  of their officials. An over-bearing  official who gets it into his head that  instead of being a public servant he is  a public boss,, is in a .fair way for  creating odium both for himself and  his employers.  Some vagrant tlmnile'r storms  which appeared to be roving aimlessly  DO  about the valley on Saturday anel Sunday gave Hedley plenty of noise anel  illumination but very little moisture.  Up anel down the valley a few miles  it was different. . Down between  Bradshaw's anel Charlie Allison's on  Sunday evening the rain came down  in torrents, resembling almost a  cloud-burst, while at Brushy Bottom  a mile or so farther elown there were  only a few drops anel at Hedley there  was not enough tt> even change the  color of the dust.   .  A. L. McClatchie, superinelent of  western agencies of Protective Association of Camilla w*as in Heelley this  week calling on members eif the  Masonic order and introducing the  Association to them. The thing  which it purposes protecting them  against is sickness anel accielent alone  anel does not pretend to give life insurance of any kind. Its business is  also confined wholly,, to members of  the craft and thus it is maele to fit in  with the charitable schemes of the  order, making unnecessary the usual  assistance extended hy ^subordinate  and Grand Lodges to those who may  be. in need of assistance. This explanation is olt'ered to prevent n~niisunder-  staneling which might arise out of  the name, owing to its similarity  with  other organization.  The management of the Labor Day  sports is being taken over by the  Miners' Union who are busy preparing  a programme of attractions in which  we understand rock drilling and baseball will have a, prominent position.  For the convenience of the people of  other places, up and elown the valley,  who may want to-take it in, especially  in view of the limited accommodation  for those who -would be obligee! to  stay over night, it was hopeel that the  arrangement would he for one day instead of the two days which we have  always had, but we understanel it is to  be a two day celebration again. It is  hopeel, however, that the Great Northern will be a little more accommodating in the matter of holding the train  in the evening to allow those elown  the line who may want to go back the  same evening to do so.  The  Gazette  had   the pleasure   of a  spin  out on Friday evening last with  F. H.  French and his  family party in  the auto to Harry Rose's roael camp  near Bromley's.    The camp is situated  on a breezy upland bench   behind Indian Steve's place with Bromley creek  flowing close at hanel  past the cook  tent.     The tents are scattered over an  area that  would suffice  for a military  camp of three battalions and is airy,  convenient and sanitary.   Much of the  work which  they hael west of the present camp was  on low ground where  the mosquitees could be counted on to  make  life strenuous  day and  night,  and  to camp down   there was out of  the question.    Their  present work is  in cleise proximity to the camp anel is  likely to take them  six weeks or more  before there will be. any further necessity for moving.    There are at present  about 24 men at work in the camp anel  the work will be pushed so as to cover-  as much ground as  possible before the  enel  of the season, and to that enel as  big a force of men   will be kept as possible.  Fruit and Farm for August (formerly the Fruit Magazine) is eminently a,  practical number, anel eleals with the  every day problems that beset the  fanner. That is the kind of publication that meets the wants of those  who make their living from the soil.  One tiling which should commend it  to fruit-growers and farmers in the  interior is the sensible and patriotic  stand which it takes in asking the  housewives of Vancouver anel other-  British Columbia centres to defer their  preserving and canning operations  until the Interior fruit has come in.  Last year a gooel eleal of the loss that  was oceassioneel happeneel because of  the fact that the Yakima and Wenat-  chee peaches which came in from two  to three weeks alieael of the British  Columbia interior had glutteel the  markets and housewives had purchased their season's supply before the  latter anel better varieties from our  own interior were ripe enough for  shipping.

C  It is doubtful  whether there is anything the public is up against where  there is more sham  and humbug than  with   the so-calleel   itinerant   oculist,  ophthahnist or  whatever  the adventurer may want to  call  himself; anel  look out for squalls   if he   bears an  Israelitish cognomen.    These  men go  about preteneling  to test eyes when it  is   oftenest  the   merest   pretence   on  their part anel they charge outrageous  prices that competent men  who have  a fixed  place of aboele   and a reputa-**  tion   to maintain  woulel not  think of  charging.     Some of them  are as foxy  as the fake showman who tries to keep  out of the  newspapers anel  takes care  to refrain from displaying  his printed  matter until a few  hours   before  the  performance  so  that the   newspapers  have less chance  to get a line on him  and put the public next.

Mrs. James Innis and her daughter  Hattie, left on 'Monthly via Penticton  for Saskatoon, Winnipeg anel points  in the east. She hopes to spenel a few  weeks with her son, Ed, at Saskatoon  and later with her daughter, Susie, at  Winnipeg. We trust they both will  have a most enjoyable trip.  As the guests of Miss .Eva Gibson  at the home of her parents, about the  largest number of young people evc.r  seen together here most thoroughly  enjoyetl an evening of one, continual  lounil of .pleasure. \ All kinds of games  were indulged in: lanterns hungacross  tin* lawn 'made a very pleasant effect.  Light refreshments were- tastily served by the hostess and after a few  more games the party broke up  thoroughly enjoyed with the evening  ���������spent.  Well the Sheep's head is gone and it  did not happen on a dark anel stormy  night either. John dramatically stat-  eel that that head would not be moved  during the absence of bis boss, but  the worst was yet to come. Some  bloke wanted a drink, it being about a  hundreel iii the shade at the. time,  while the defender of his rights was  n'obly elishing out a wet- refreshment,  the intrueler with eyes fixed on the  head maele a flying dash moimteel a  chair anel in less time than it takes to  swallow half a pint of iced ale had the  head and out and into a waiting automobile anel away. Some speed to a  stunt like that.  J.A.BROWN  Notary Public  CONVISYA'NCINO, CUSTOJTS BKOKKRACrE,  ���������Kllil-   INSURANCE' <  OFFICE  KEREMEOS.

Mr. Pyne of England, father of Gordon, of auto fame, whom we all know  so well, having made a trip through  ti> Vancouver decided on his return to  conic elown the valley and visit his  son.

Fruit is being shipped almost daily  to the Boundary and Ivootenay points  where there is a good market for outproduce if all the growers take it  real seriously that it is right up to  thctn to put their stuff on the market  in the best shape. No greater harm  can be elone to our fruit industry than  carelessness in regard to marketing.  One well packed box tastily put up  with pride anel care is worth six boxes  thrown on the market. Everyone interested should take special pains with  this the greatest enel of the business.  One of our prominent growers remarked: " "growing is the easiest part of it;  it's the marketing in good shape that  counts anel builds up the business and  the district."  There are such excellent concrete  examples now and again outcropping  of men who prove that it pays to take  ui) cow testing, ths>t their records of  success make stimulating reading for  dairy farmers all ewer the Dominion.  Here is a good sample of what one  man at Cedar Hall, Que., in the Gaspe  peninsula accomplished by carefully  watching his fairly good cows and  feeding them better. The first year  his eight cows gave liiin 33.511 pounds  .c-.f_.milk, an average of 4.1SS pounds at  a feed cost of $32.50, netting a total  profit of ?76.S2 an average of ?9.60  profit per cow. Two of the best cows  in the herd the first year were lost accidentally, two heifers made up the  herd to eight again: a pure bred sire  is kept.  The next year his eight cows gave  him 4i,40S pounds or milk, an average  of 5,176 pounds, or 1,000 pounds of an  increase per cow. The feed cost $4.12  more per cow. but the total profit  was $177.29, or an average of $ 22.16  per cow. This is an increase of.ONE  HUNDRED AND THIRTY PER CENT  in the profit. It pays to give additional feed if the cows kept are of the type,  to make use of it profitably.  The forcible realities are these:  The gross income from milk increased  b-3* $133.43 from the same number of  cows, the profit FAR MORE THAN  DOUBLED, and the owner has received every encouragement . to try for  still better results. That is where a  trial cqw testing trip generally lands  the herd owner.  R. H. EOGEKS,  M.A., B.C.L.  BARRISTER, SOLICITOR,  NOTARY PUBLIC, ETC  Vernon, B. C  Hotel Keremeos  Opposite G. N. R.

The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving tlie loctil freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of work.
