WIIA T MR SMITH MEANT  The full bounty ol the ridiculous  position, in which the vote ol Wednesday's meet ing 1ms left t his plnce was  not iippni ent until anolhei di-ius-icni  took place Thttisd.-iv 111 the houtd ot  trade. It seems tliiit. alter Weilnes-  tlny'a ineet.ing in the pleniluile ol its  foresight hue. solemnly cleleriiiinod to  ieciue-L the Lieuleniinl.

It, was dele-imined  th.it it must be the boaid of trade.  Accoidingly .1 resolution di.iwn up by.  Sir. .1. A. Smith was nisei c.iriied with  great solemnity insti ucting the boaid  ot ti.ide to discover wheie* this responsibility properly lay and also, w hen  discove'ied, to L'lii'oice it. When this  tame befoie the board last, night, it  was pointed out Iiy -c^ei.il piesent  that this was rather a laige older, seeing that the only conceivable method  ol discovering beyond cavil lhe govei nnient or corporation legally 1 e-pon-  sible'for this work was one. it nol  sevei.il. suits befoie the courl.'ol  exchequer. This the board most emphatically declined to undei take. A  discussion then arose as lo what Mr.  Smith meant by this e\tr,ivngantly  wortled resolution, in which it was  easily apparent lhat whether Mr.  Smith knew himself or nol. some of  those who had been pi e-unt at lhe  meeting and voted lor it certainly did  nol. The friends of r the lcsolulion  said that all Mr. Smilh meant, was  thnt politics was to be avoided in this  matter. This piece ol advii e \\ bethel  cpiite* fea-ihlo or not certainly has the  merit of clisinteresledtU'Sseoniiiig from  n~ge.nlleni.in. who is nt pi-i-sent.eai ning  his living out ot politics. All lhen that  Air. Smith meant by these b'l.ive wcuds  about " fixing'.' and " entoicing" 1 es-  pons Inl ty w is that lhe b.i.ird, as a  H1111politK.il body, was asked to approach a-pi ring candidates for political  honors on eitliei side.

How many such  pi onuses the boaid'is loget belore the  lespinisibility is " fixed " and "entor-,  ced " was not explained. However on  the distinct understaneli'ig-thaL thi-  is nil the resolution meant. Hie bo u-.l  consented by one vote to lake il. into  tlieii eoiisideiation.  Now lei us see where this leives us,  sinee it iiui-t be remembered that 'lithe lirst lesolulioii lhe d,itc> of the fust  municipal elei tion is to lie po-l poucd  until this * pecnli ir kind ol" fixing "_  nnil " cnioic ing"' is completed to  everybody's sal'sl'ae tion.

All thnt  the hoard can get. all that .my minis-  term-politician would give, ought, to  give, hits any power to give, is 11 verbal promise that il leturneel to'power  he will do his b.*-l endeavois to get  tin* woik lO'.upleled. All talk alunit  written promises that the work should  be absolutely done is nonsense. Any  sin h wiiting would not be woith the  paper il is ivi iitcn on iind could only  lie given lo llnow dust mi the eyes o'l  the electors, since whoever it was  gave* it, would be pledging  himself to more than he h.ul (he power  to enrry out.

All  he can say, as an honest ninti, is that  he w ill in'iiki* il his business lo try und  get. the legislatuie to adopt it.  Revelstoke* is then nt piesent posing  before the piovince in the ridiculous  position of first n-king for >i special act  to ace-elei-iitc* it.- incorporation, and  then rei)nesting the lieutenant govcr-  ci nor not to thrust the responsibility  upon her, until her nimcl hns been set  at ease by hall a do/.en mores ante-election promises of assistance, in protecting tlie* river bank. This seems to the  Hl-KALI) to be one of the most extra-  oidinai-y proposals ever- m.-iele to the  executive. His honoi is out, of polities, now. but. h'* must certainly wish  when the proposition is brought to his  notice*, that 111 his e.-iily clays, when  he was still on his political promotion,  he had Miue-k such a dead e.-isy graft us  Revelstoke presents lietself iu it. The  touc-hing reliance placed on political  promises.shewii by it.iscpiite Arinelinii  in its innocence and simplicity. We  ate afraid to get mcorpor-ited now because the cost of piotcLting the river  bank might bethieiwn mi its, hut let  nnr boiirel ol tiade, which is a 11011-  politic-al body, only get Mr. Turner and  Mr. Semlin,! Col.

This is the* attitude in whicli we, who claim to he  an intelligent, progie-sivi*. business  community, stand at this veiy time  according'to lhe inletpiet.ition of the  resolutions of last Wednesday's meeting   Ijy tLe very men   who  helped   to  cnri v theni. This is where this evei-  l.isling tiilkee-lalkee ;ind itch fnr passing lescilulious  ������������������I'ull of sound mid Tury,  Signifying nothing"  has landed the rising   town of   Revel-  sloke.  GRANDMOTHERS, MEET  The lesull, of l.islniglil's inecLing hns  fniily succeeded in making this place  the 1-iughing stock of the whole province. We have proved ourselves not  to know onr own minds for two  months loget her. After the town  petitioning the government, lor .1  special .-let to ac relet ale the incoipor-  iitiun of Revelstoke, this meeting  presumes to take upon itself, ior  it in no way represented the  residents of the town, lo put. the in-  corpoiution olf sine die, The meeting  itself apparently repiesenied the op-  posision to the Turner government in  Revelstoke*, which is trying to twist  the que'stion of incni po'r.il'nn with its  usual narrow ingenuity into 'i political  matter. The IIBltALP entirely refuses  to believe that t he people of Revelstoke  as a body wish to appeal- befoie the  pi ovince as a loi of nervous old women  ini.-ip.ible of knowing their own minds  and afraid of the 1 esponsibililies of  self government,.. 11' this is the: kind of  policy that, is going to govern our  iiifrius, what we' leallv icquiie is a  Refuge foi Deciepid Female1". It is  folly to talk about progiess and ptos-  pects in such a place.

However as the IIskald would  not be justified'hi leporLing the leitlly  amusing and interesting part of the  proceedings, it refrains from giving n  liaie rcpoil. which might give a wiong  impiession. The interest of the evening cenleied'round the* adoption ot the  ii'soliition 'of che public iiieeling on  Wedne'sclnv evening to the elfeet that  " the boaid ot ti.ide find out wheie the  i_spoi-_.t-iili.yiif protei ting the river  bank tests .indeiilotce its recognition."

Political Pointers.  Tinil elected no delegates to attend  t he opposition nominating convention  which meets in Ros-land on the 2~th.  A party up from Trail says theie was  not an attempt to elect delegates, and  that, there are verv few oppositionists  tliere.���������Rossland Record.  The inception nc-coreled to t lie opposition delegates from Rossland who  visited Trail Inst Saturday indicates  verv clearly the political sentiments of  the people of that town. The delegates  were wise to liie.ik up the meeting  when they did, or they would have  siill'ered the discomfiture of seeing the  meeting railed for (heir especial benefit, pass resolutions declaring against  the policy of the opposition. A very  large majorilyof the people of Trail  aie opposed to the opposition.���������Rossland Aliner.  Signs aie not wanting that Ihu opposition convention which meets in  this city tomorrow, will he a hopeless  conflict between aspirants to the legislative assembly. Many of the delegates  ate candidates for the nomination to  iiLt -is slanclai d bearer of the oppositionists nt the appioiiching election.  The promised tioublc lies iu the f.Kt  that the Rossland managers of the  party hnvo eleeidecl that the contest  tciinciirow shall be between three* men,  but, they cannoL decide which of the  three shall be chosen. As the situa-  iition stands it looks as though 1 lie l.u e  would be between James .M.u tin. I). 13.  Bogle and A. B. C.ilbon, all Rossland  men. Trail hns been completely ignored, unci the Bounda! y Creek country, which is really the'cliief npposi  tion stionghold in the* tiding, is practically denied the right to name a candidate. It would nlso seem that the  labor vote hns been iimleirated and  tiented with contempt. Messrs. "Wilks  and Dutton are well up in local politics  and ni ens capable of forming opinions  on the questions of the day ns any  other member of the opposition party,  but they arc being patted on the back  and urged by the bosses tn nobly sacrifice themselves lor the political advancement, of those who do not. belong  to .my of tlu.- trade unioosr.���������Ro*=slaiicl  Miner.  'I  MURDER OF MISSIONARIES  Cold Blooded Butchery of Men and  Women on the West Coast of  Africa,  London, May 2Ti.���������A letter received  this city from Sicrin Lenne, west coast  of Alrim, says that a Meneli native  who Wits with the American missionaries at Rotufimk when they were  uiiissiicred by the irisuigents, engaged  in the uprising against the imposition  ot the hut tax, but who made his  escape by resuming his native garb,  furnishes the following account of ihu  tragedy: We smiled to wnlk to  Sieii-n Leone, but hnd only gone half a  mile when we met war. boys who  blocked the wny. The Rev. Mr. C'aine  tried to tiighlen them by firing a  tevolver over their heads but seeing  they were determined to do mischief  he cast his revolver awny and snid he  would not have nny blood on his  hands. The war boys then seized the  party and Misses Hatfield, Archer and  -Cent, stripped theni of tlieir clothing,  and dragged'them back to tho mission  house, in tiont of .which the war boys-  cut down the Rev. Mr. Cain nud hacked him to cle.uh, .md treated Miss  Aieher and Miss Kent in the same  way. Miss Hnlfield. who wns very ill,  wus thrown on a li.iihed wire netting  and finally her thru.it was cut. Mis.  Cain escaped to the bush with a native  girl but the w.tr boys found them and  they were killed.  A Child Drowned.

The  cl.11111 is iin hydi.uilic king pioposition.  which ,iu the opinion nt competent  obberve*is will pay well, if pi opei ly  handled. Messrs.

Two other likulv selections, in addition  to Hint of Mr. Martin on the part of  the local liberals, are Mr. R. Mcl'hei-  siin, M. P. P.. and Mr. Cotton. SI. P.P.,  is'uudcistood to claim lh.it that he Ills  in addition to the suppciit of most conservative oppositionists nf Vancouver,  the backing of official liberalism so fains that is inclined to opposition. Those  who should be in n position to know,  have every ii'iwin to believe that n  well pl-iiuied liberal elfoit will be made  to exclude .Mr. Cotton's name from the  oiipo-ition ticket. The withdrawal of  ilr.

Information from London is cou-

Chamberlain's Birmingliaiu speech
hus caused a feeling of uneasiness
on the SLock Exchange. Iiusiness
was poor and the markets closed
lt is prophesied that hostilities
between England and France cannot long bu warded off.
Mr. Chamberliu'- speech litis be en
accepted as nn intimation that
serious international complications
may be looked for in the near
future. The majority of the English newspaper*, approve, of tho
Colonial Sscretary's st.tiLeiiuuir.s,
Hiidarif generally fiivoiirubli'io the
idea of an Anglo Saxon alliance if
it can bo arranged on n .satisfactory basis. The London correspondent of the I'Siin" cables the
following:���"16 is premature, perhaps, to discii ~s today the detail
nml nature of tho alliance which
Great Britain desires to make with
the United States. Tht* chief point
which it is desired to determine ��C
this juncture is whether the public
sentiment of America will sanction
any alliance. If ic will, I do not
go too far in saying that tne terms
can be arranged either now or at
some more suitable moment in the
near future."

Britain's strength is on the sea,
and she is  ready for   any emergency.    French   bluster  will not
succeed in putting her oft" guard,
and  the intention of   both Lord
Salisbury and Mr.  Chamberlain's
speeches may be taken as intimation to both   Russia and France,
that the limit of forbearance has
been  reached,   and   the   ominous
growls of the lion had best not be
disregarded.   The number of men
that France and Russia could put
in the rield at short notice, owing
to their system   of  conscription,
might well terrify any European
power, but England can afford to
smile and wait "her time.    Neither
jointly or separately need England
fear the issue ot hostilities with
France   or   Russia.      Britain   is
ready for war on the sea, and if
tbe dispute   respectiii,.   territory
in Africa precipitates matters, it
will be found that France is in Deposition   even   with  the  help of
Russia   to  display che necessary-
naval superiority to secure success
i'i   any   test   of   strength    with
England.   The French navy is in
a'most incomplete condition, and
it is' only latterly that Russia lias
turned her attention seriously to
naval    matters.      It   would    be
necessary to first overcome British
power  on   the sea  before troops
could bo landed iu Africa which
would be the scene of conllict.
It is uot considered probable
that the present high price of
wheat will long continue, unless
tho war develops into large proportions and embroils more ot the
European powers. The worlds
supply of wheat last week was
estimated at (15,000,000 bushels as
against 51,000,000 last year, aud as
tho acreage in wheat this year is
larger thau ever before, it seems
hardly likely that extrecmiy high
prices will prevail this fall. The
granaries of Italy aud France are
rapidly lilliug up, still most likely
very jjood prices will contimi'-
until after the coining crop is
gathered, and farmers may cou-
lidently look forward to prices
verv much iu advauce of thoso ol
late years.   .
The war now raging between
the United States and Spain has
demonstrated the desirability of a
Pacific cable entirely uuder
British control, Australia and
Canada must have ,-joiut communication and already there are
"signs that those most interested in
the project are not unmiudful of
-the neces-iity-of eommunicatioi_,_so.
that in case of hostility, concentrated and concerted action could
be arranged.
Readers of the war news are perhaps not aware' of the enormous
expense involved iu collecting such
news. The items of news that
reach us from the blockading ships
are forwarded in despatch boats
owned or engaged by press assoea-
tions or newspaoers. It takes a
matter of 12 hours to run to and
return from Key West, which is
the nearest cable office. The cable
too for press despatches from Ivey
west is 5 cents a word," as many as
0,000 words have been sent in one
day to a single newspaper aud
perhaps only a small proportion of
the despatch has been published,
"dead" matter beiog ii-Ecjuenily
placed on the wires to hold them
from rival journals.

matter for wonder, mu.t of them
have been assiduous in their

to set thinking people ruminating

for a s-ilciit toto-a-toto with a lono fomalo
in n, strange houso. For a timo ho sa��
htillly quiet. Then, as lho silence grew op-
prcs-ivo, ho arose and busied himself fn-
spee-ting tho pictures nnd bric-a-brac. Ai
ho moved along one sido of tho apartmont,
keeping nc n sale distance from the stranger in tlie big hat, ho happened to approach
the ole-trio button lhat controlled the light
in tho room. He had liis eyes glued to a
water color hanging on tho wall closo by,
when, to his aiiiazeinciit, tho lights suddenly went out, leaving tho apartment in
total darkness.
OE course it wns owing to an accident

MacBeth, M. A., has  reached us. It is a, very neatly gob  up book, well printed and full ot good  illustrations, and should iind a hearty  welcome in many homes. Thestory'of  the growth of the North West trom  earliest times to tho present elay, is  told in pleasing style and by one who  has beeu in intimate touch with most  ol the principal actors. The account  ot tlie; growth, spread and collapse ol  the first, rebellion, is most'graphic,  and the causes winch led up to it are  veiy fully explained; the making  from yiry rough materials ot anew  province; the second rebellion and its  termination. The religious and educational development ol the, North  West is fully enteied into and history  brought down to our own times. The  closing sentence of Lhe work is worth  repeating, that: '-If Camilla knows  bor opportunity, and the day of her  visitation; if she holds this vast domain for God and home,and truth and  purity, there are limitless possibilities  of noble      endeavor       and *  high  achievceiieuL before us."

On the inside box nail cleats, on which  to place racks made of lath.' The ice  is placed at the bottom, and 'whatever  you wish to keep cool, such as butter,  fresh* meats, etc., . place upon the  racks, and is' also excellent to keep  food in wheu there is noiee in it. The  box can be improved by putting in a  zinc lining, old zinc will do; nail legs'  to the outside corners so as to keep it  from the floor a few inches.  .llurii    lJ.inj._ rou-  Vill <:.i'>u*i.  .'.mill    Worrier.

After Seventeen Very Cold Itcfnsaln He  Captured the Hello ot .Sll.crton ns a  Partner, but oil tlio Kvc of u Triumph  n Trascdy Occurred.  At Silverton, Or., during thn summer  oE 1S1I0, I was out with a thrashing crow,  and our inachiiio'hnd just Mulshed thrashing for n iii.m about three miles from town.  As wo did not lhra-.li again until Monday,  nil hands camo into town to get a shave  nnd a clean shirt.  When wo struck tho hrart of the city of  Silverton, consisting of about, .no inhabitants, including tliu town cows, ic was in  a wild stago of excitement. A danco was  to be held thnt, nigh: nt I-'rank Kuan's hoji-  house, somo flvo miles away. My lirst  thought was ro go tuul engage a partner  nt onco. On second thought, howovor, I  concluded I might mako a moro respectable appearance if I had a shave and somo  of tho chalt combed out of my hair. After  waiting in lino for three hours I got tho  desired shave.  Now, I hnd no regular girl, but I of  -Oiii'-Ki had n favorite, so I went on a run  to her houso. On meeting her at the door  I saw that her hair was done up in lead,  mid I wns sure sho oxpected mo. Whon I  asked hor, she expressed regret and said  that I wns so uncurtain about asking her  to go to dances that sho bad accepted the  company of Harvey Allon.  I threw tho blow off lightly and proceeded clown tho street, asking ovory girl I  knew who was of danceablo ago. And,  strange as it may seem, I received IT flat  throw down... I consoled myself, however,'  by the thought that I would have beon accepted had I not been too late. Tho sad  part of it was that somehow the news got  ahead of nie that I was coming, and aU  along tho latter part of my painful journey  'the girls mot mo nt tho yard gate with tho  fatal words "Too late." I abandoned tho  job as hopeless, nnd, making a boo lino for  homo, proceeded . to do the chores till overy linckloucl had gono for the dance.  In  every town there  is one girl  moro  everything wm ull right. Wo prococdod,  but tho love 6tory had been badly broken  into and our conversation was to tlio effect  that wo hoped tho moon would soon go  down and tbo horso would quit his fooling.  Wo had travolcd about half tliuilistanoo,  whon we ran over a rook in the road, and  immediately came this dull, fluttering  sound. Tlio horso again rose in tlio air,  nearly overturning the buggy. I know by  this timo that thoro was something serious  tho matter. I got out again, determined  to mako a thorough cxamiiiabi-.ui. Whilo I  was out I heard somothing breathing bard  under tho buggy, and un looking found  that five of my star chickens, wliich had  boon in tho habit of roosting on lho bind  axle, had gono to roost thoru in tbo evening. Whenever wo hit n rock, it would  jolt a hon off her porch, nnd she would  catch by her bill as sho foil and lliutcr to  her foot again, thus frightening tho horso.  I really hated to reveal tlio truth, us tho  truth ofttimes hurts,, ns It did in this case.  The poor girl was shivering In her seat,  frightened half out. of hor wits. Hut when  I told bor it was chickens roohting sho was  disgusted boyonel measure. Shu knuw as  jjvoll as other persons who havo over lived  in Silverton that chickens havo blighted  my life from thu beginning to the present  clay. Sho suggested that wo set them on  tho fonco along tho road until ivo came  homo in tho morning, lint Unit wouldn't  do, becauso tlio dawn broke at 3:a0, and,  vnother thing, coons would eat them during the night. Wo became more and moro  divided in our opinions. As iny chickens  were as raro as villaga belles, unci I loved  them both, the caso was painful.  We filially compromised by going back  homo. Wc mot no onu on the way���������no ono  passed us. Thero I was, redly out tilono  with tho charm and prido of Sil .c-rton.  No ono over know it save sho and I and  the horse'and five chickens.  I staid up tho balance of tho night and  told lhe boys when thoy camo homo in the  morning, but thoy wouldn't belico it. I  told somo of the girls who hnd given mo  tho mitten the ovuniiig before, .-md thcy  went to Jliss Xottio, but oven she denied  the story.  And so I horo record tho solemn truth  that I would havo paralyzed tlio wholo  dance at Eg.'in's hophouso but for thoso  live measly chickens.���������llomor Davenport  in Xew York Journal.  - I THOUGHT I HEARD A _,I_UTT~~R~~~&-S0U__3. -7--'  A large colony of Mennonites with  SO cars of stock and effects are .moving  from Manitoba to Assiniboia.

'���������'**<.__,  beautiful than tho rest, sometimes so much  moro beautiful than tho others that sho is  in a olass by herself.' That was tho caso  with Xettio, tho Silverton bollo. Yet none  of us town boys ever u-dced her to go to  any of tho dnnces-Or various cntci'tuin-  nients for tho simple reason that since  somo ot tho ordinary girls frequently gave  us~tho mitten wo bad concluded thut she,  who was beautiful and frequently -went  with Portland fellows with plug hats,  would surely ignore us.  Now, aftor receiving theso 17 refusals I  naturally was about ready to quit for the  evening, but after.,tho Inst hack had gone  I ventured out and went to tho postoilico  for my father's mail. Who should I meet  at tho postoflice but Miss Nettie, tho bollo  of the town, and sho really looked a dream.  -Sho_nnd-I_both-.bliished,.tlion_sbo asked-  why I hadn't gone to tho danco.  "What dance?" said I.  "Oh. haven't you heard about it?"  '���������No," said I. .  "It's out at Egan's hophouso."  Meantime I had emptied tho mall box  of its contents, which was .^solitary paper,  tho Silverton Appeal, which is printed every Saturday eivoning and put in tho mail  while tbo ink i.s still wot. - Miss Nettle  lived up my way, so we both blushed again  and walked up the sidewalk together.  Presently sho said, "I don't know why any  of tlio boys novel- ask mo to go to dances,  and I am simply dying to go."  Well, I could feel my pulso jump from  normal to 1.0 in a, minute, and simultanc-  j ously we asked each other to go to tho  dance. Al.-o simultaneously wc both accepted. It was quite dark by this time,  and sho proposed wo go to our barn and  hitch up my father's old buggy that stood  in tho wagon shed, and hurry as fast ns  possible to tho danco.  ' The horso ran in tho calf pasturo back  of tho barn, and after a few falso moves I  grabbed him by tho foretop and hurried  quietly to the barn where tho bello of the  village was waiting on tho old buggy sent.  I backed the horso Into tho wagon shod  und hitched cp the buggy just as it stood.  If Byron or Shakespeare wero still writing, they never could do justice to the feeling that oxisted in my heart.

It was late, but my only thought was to  get to tho dance beforo nny ono had gone  home, so tbat tbo "ad." I would receive  from my being in company with tlio belle  of tho village would bo as largo as possible.  We wero driving at a trot and talking a  mild sort of a love story, when suddenly  tho horse, with a snort, gave a terrific  jump and started to run. I held him, and  ofter jerking on tho lines for somo moments quieted him. ft was something unusual for him to do. and any of tho small  children in town could drive him anywhere  without a line.  ' After wo had driven a quarter of n mile  farther ho repented this performance. I  thought I heard n fluttering sound like the  capo of n young woman in the wheel, but  examination revealed nothing.

I believe there is more loss to tho  creameries of tbo conn try'at this ono  point of passing from tho receiving vat  to tbo separator than at any other poiut  along tlio lino. To secure uu even tom-  pci'iituro it is one of tho most essential  things to do good .skimming, and to get  this you must certainly watch yout  thermometer. Homo milk may como in  seven or eight miles on a cold day, tbo  can lids arc frozen on and thero is a  Bcuiu of ico slicking ou tbo can. Bo-  tweou thawing tbo cans uud weighing  np you can't more than keep tbo separators going. Tbo next batch, maybe, is  from near at hand. Tbo milk litis but  recently boon taken from tbo houso or  somo other warm place and covered with  a blanket until it reaches tbo creamery.  Now there is a great difTercnco iu the  temperature, of theso two batches of milk  that will require closo attontion ou tbo  part of tbo one who is doiug tbo skimming.  We find tho two classes tbat' are  maiuly used aro either tbo tempering  vat with the live steam running direct  iuto tbo milk or one of tbo sevevul patented beaters that aro mado &t~3 sold by  creamery supply bouses and otber...  Iu tbo cu&o ol the beaters I thiuk tbo  worst dtiugcr is to secure an even temperature)'to tbo milk, and, as I said bo-  fore, this, I think, is very essential to do  good skimming. Some of these heaters  admit tlio steam direct into tbe milk as  it is passing through a pipo into the  separators. Otheis do not allow the  6tcam to enter tbo milk at all, bnt the  Gtcam is admitted into a brass cylinder  that is placed insido a five or six inch  pipe, and tbo milk- pusses botween tbo  pipe aud cylinder iu a sheet from one to  ouo and one-quarter inches in thickness  uud is heated by coming in contact with  the hot cylinder.  This kind of heater has the advantage, if there is any advantage, of keeping the steam out of tho milk, aud tbi3  is a poiut tbat I hope will briug out a  good discussion on this question of  whether it is cm injury to milk to use  fcteaiii direct iu it or not. For my part  I don't think it is when the proper care  is taken in tbo suoply of water used for  boiliug feed, biit if iny supply of water  was. not of the cleauest nud best or if I  had used a boiler compound in my  boiler I think then I would use somo  kind of a boater whero the Etoam was  not allowed to enter the milk. I had a  little .experience with this matter of  compounds onco tbat cost mo quite a  sum ot money. A gentleman called on  mo in the.interest of an oil firm and induced mo to try a samplo keg of boiler  compound. I told.the gentleman I was  using steam direct in tbo milk and was  afraid it would iujr.ro my butter. Ho  assured ino that it would not, and I concluded to try it and did, but I haven't  tried any compound siuco. My day's  run of butter had the' samo flavor as tho  compound, and wheu we shipped it to  tho eastern .market it sold 0 cents under.' Sp_if you uso steam diroct bo careful what you use in your., boiler, for if  you have any bad odors iu your boiler  you are bouud to have them in your  butter. I uso in my factory a tempering  vat which holds about 200 pounds of  milk. This vat is bung over tho receiving vat, and tho milk is elevated to it  by a pump. In this vat I have two partitions open at alternate euds. The milk  cuters tho vat at oue .corner and passes  out at (bo corucr diagonally across. I  havo the steam cuter tbe milk as near  tho point whero tho milk outers the vat  as convenient. Thus the milk rims the  leugth of tho vat three times after tho  6team lias entered it, and thus becomes  of an oven temperaturo by the timo it  leaves the tempering vat.  -~5���������If-the-irst-batolrof milk-is,very coldr  I turn ono or moro of tbe conductors  back iuto tho receiving vat and let it  ruu till I get it to tho tornperature I  want it. After this I havo no further  ,trouble, but can heat tho milk us fust as  I cau separate it. Somo may claim that  you havo a loss of heat by evaporation  from so large' a surface, but this, I  think, aud according to Professor McKay's theory of evaporation, is a benefit  aud not an injury, as tho evaporation  helps to curry off tbo bad odors that may  bu in tbo milk, and tho loss of beat is a  vory small per cent.  At what degree* shall wo separate?  This is a questiou that every butter  maker must answer for himself, according to tho conditions that surround bim,  tbe kind of a separator bo is using, tho  timo of year���������or, rather, tho feed on  which tho cows arc���������and the length of  time which tho cows havo been milking. These and other conditions nil cuter tho problem, and every practical butter maker must solve for himself, aud  tho solution is through tho Babcock test.  Aud now ono word about taking your  tost anel I am dono: Don't wait until  you know everything is all right beforo  you tako your test. If yon think your  speed is a littlo down or your temperature a littlo low, don't wait until you  1 tako your spoed or look at your thermometer aud then perhaps build up a firo or  turn on ycur steam, but walk up to your  separator and tako your test and then  tako your speed and temperature aud  seo what you aro doing.  Tako your test at all times and under  all conditions. Tlio thing to know it  what you aro doing in your ordinary  rim of work, and not what yon arc doing when you know everything to be  perfect. Iu this way you will soon learn  what tho perfect conditions iiro, anel  you havo only to follow them. Of courso  wo all aim to separate ct as low a temperaturo as we can and do good work.  ���������Address of J. C. Daly.  YOU    INVEST  9  If So Come to Revelstoke the Mining  Centre of North Kootenay   -   -   -   -  It has been prodicLcd by leadim; men of Canada LhaL Revelstoke will  be one* of the loading cities ot West Koolenay. That its unique position  where tin; G, P. R. cros-eis tbe beautiful Columbia valley, with water Linns-  porl.nl ion .-o the north and south and in close proximity to the richest mines  in JvcioU'iiay. making ils location unusually favorable. If you want to invest  your money in m.-iiiufuctoi ies, real estate, or mining property, visit  Itcvolsti'Ur*,"the "Gateway to tin* Koolenay."  Wu are moving to lhe fi out anel uo obstacle will or can impede our  wonderful progress. Do not forget that you will never buy real estate as  cheap us you can buy it today. Figure the increase of the past and speculate  in Revel.toko, the "Gateway to the Kootenay." j.  The bunks of the Columbia, on which river the town is situated, have  been the stage upon which strange scenes have been displayed and wild and  dariiur exploits pei formed hy the thousands who entered tliis district during  Lhe '07 gold boom in the* J.ig liend.  Revelstoke is probably one of the oldest towns in the interior.    And it  was not until this  title  question  was settled that Revulstoke rcallv liPean to  forge* ahead, commercially and otherwise.    Growth was  slow  until  1S97, but.  the old timers and newcomers had great confidence in the town aud smarted m  to make it a mining centre worthy of note.  The* C. P. R. is concentrating all its principal woikshops on the '  western division at Revelstoke. Revelstoke is. not only a mining town, but is  now ,-ind will be incre-isingly so in the future a raihvav point of considerable  importance in the C. P. 1 _. system and a distributing centre for the business of  the rich mining districts included in tbe section popularly known as North  Kootenny. Its impotlancc in these connections is due to "its unique geographical piiMLion. Seated in a beautiful open valley at the point of intersection  of tbe Columbia river and the C. P. 11. main line, it commands the passes  running north and south, to the famous gold fields of the Big Bend and the  rich mineral leads ot the I_._rde.-iu, while on the east up the Illecillewaet  another district of greaL prospect is being opened up. Tlie town is the point  of junction of thn' main line and th . Arrowhead branch of the C. P. R., bv  which access is gained to the South Kootenay by rail and steamer. Another  line of steamers will make Revelstoke theirstarting point for the Big Bend,  for which country il.-is at present the sole outfitting point anel base of supplies.  Thus by the mere* force of geograpbicat position alone Revelstoke has forged  to the front until the little mining camp of a few years ago lias become a town  of considerable importance to the business of the province.  The mining industiy is still in its infancy, but with the careful expen-,  ilittir- of capital in development work will grow tu laige dimensions.  Large uie.-is of land  in close  pioximity to  tbe town are covered with    '  timber suitable for lumhtr, but probably just as valuable its fire wood, there  being no coal deposits discovered near at, bund as yet.    This land when cleared  s  proving  to  be  exceptionally line farming  and  gardening'land.'-  and   the,   '  demand for produce is always  many times larger than the supply, train, loads J  being iinpoited from other points everv season.   This should'be taken into'--  consideratioii by intending settlers.  Across the river fiom Revelstoke an excellent clay exists for Uie making of brick in vast quantities, wliich commands a high price at anv time. '    " '   .  The  town  enioys   many advantages:    A   fine,   healthy -climate���������the  death rate being exceedingly- low���������good w-at-*r,!supplied by a system of water,," '  works, fiom  the mountain side just north of the town, underlying which is a ~  Httatum of gravel tliHtjOnsures a natural drainage.    A shortdistance up the C.r  P, K. track,  east, to Lhe Illecillewaet river,  is a canyon and falls,   which must ,  he seen to be fully appreciated.   The power from those falls is now being utilized by alio Revelstoke Water, Light _c Power Co.  for running their fine electric lighting plant.* They have an  unlimited -power which later on will   be  useful for manufacturing purposes and running the prop..-i.l *-:rcet carlini.   -"   .
