Out Liberalism is overwhelmingly  strong in Nova Scotia.  Is ft ?  How strong wotfld Liberalism ho in  Nova Scotia if W. S. Fielding were  leading a Liberal opposition and R.  L. Borden was utilizing the nuiteiiiil  resources at the disposal of a powerful government?  And Liberalism is strong in Quebec ?  It is not Liberalism, but Laurier  who is strong in Quebec, and the  votes rolled up against the Conservatives in Quebec yes'terday were polled  not'hecause the \-ame-*'pf the government was Liberal, but ^because the  oiigin of the leader was French.  The west went Liberal with a  sweep ?  No, the west went government with  a sweep. But Clifford Sifton in the  position of R. L. Richardson, with" no  other strength, than tliat afforded by  principle, and Mr. Sifton could scarce  save hisdpposjt'in Brando;).  Then sentiment which carried the  Northwest for the government was  0-cj>r(.gsed in tho rough and ready  language of a man- from Manitoba:  "We want that railway, and we want  it quick, and we don't" give a d n  how we'get it,  so'-long as it comes  quick." r, ~ ,'  Western Canada voted for "a Liberal  government and the Grand Trunk Pacific.

Clifford Sifton would not suffice to  save his own seat or carry three seats  west of Lake Superior if he were, in  opposition, fighting against enemies in  office.'-'' j '  How much regard for Liberalism  can be found in Nuv.t Scotia'-." undying attachment to the piovioion waggons of the party in power, aud Quebec's unyielding fidelity to the gloi ies  of its French-C inadian idol, and in  the sweeping vetdict of the^ We*>t for  the Giand Trunk Pacific railway? The  verdict would Have-" been just as  sweeping it the government had pioposed to n.iil a $1,000 hill on every"  tie as nn extra inducement to the pat-  tiotic Senator Cox, or'the illusliious  C. "M. Hays. -    J."  L'bcialism may'noEalways .be able  to charm Quebec with the gloiies of  the French-Canadian leadership. Libeialism cannot ofi'er a new railway to  Western Canada every time it goes  to the counti y.    "  The office-holding Liberalism which  charitis" Nova Scotia, thc Liutier worshipping paitisanshin which delights  Quebec, the lnatorializoi machine Liberalism which sweeps "Western Canada, what does "all this Libei.ili.sru  amount to in Ontario.  The defeat of the Liheials in On-  tatio cannot be charged to Tarte. The  defeat of the Liberals in Ontario in  1900 vvas not due to"Tarte. The Crow's  Nest Pass de j 1 first*, took the soul of  enthusiasm out of Ontario Liberalism.  This piocess of decay in the spirit ot  the paity has been continued by  the Mackenzie-Mann and Grund Trim lc  deals, and by the sins of the Ontaiio  government. It .was not too much  Tarte, but too much Ctow's Fest Past,  and J. R. SUattqn leadership that has  been the undoing, of tho Liberals in  Ontario'. The work of ruin and demoralization in-.,, the character ot  Ontaiio must bp^iegardcd as completed by the defeat of thc-party-in  Ontaiio. Onkitio-rie"Cer "-before1 Voted'  against the Liberals "in -.'a federal or  pi ovincial contest when the Liberals  ai ranged the constituencies which  returned the vetdict. ,   '  Ontario has gone Conservative in  constituencies which were arranged  by Conservatives to give the party  the advantage. - Ontaiio* went Conservative in constituencies which  were arranged by Liberals to give,  their party the advantage. The  Liberal idol, .the government idol,  may rejoice in its forehead of western  brass, it may glory in the health of its  Nova Scotia appetite for the spoils;  it may boast itself in the strong arms  of Quebec racial enthusiasm, but" the  idol has feet of clay���������Ontaiio clay.  Ontaiio voted for government ownership, and the strength of that principle in this province is a foundation  upon which tho courage and honesty  of a wise opposition could rebuild the  shattered fortunes of tho Conservative  party. Onfarioivoted, and hundreds  of Liberals must havo gono "witli the  Conservative fellow-countrymen to  produce the revolution. Ontario  -voted againsUthe-Liboials for_the fitsfc  time in its history, when the Liberals  had the chance to gioup the peoplo in  constituencies to suit themselves. The  weakness of the goveinuient in thi.s  province is the symptom of a disease  that will prove fatal lo Liberal ascendancy, unless the Liberals who aro  Liberals for the sake of Liberalism are  able to resit ain the private greed  which has wrecked thoir party in  Ontario.'

The Amateur Dramatic Club scored  a decided   success   last   night in their  production   of   the   four-act    drama  '��������� The Ticket of Leave Man."    It  was  by long odds far superior to anything  heietofore    iiiven   by   amateurs    in  Revelstoke and would conipaie favorably with the majority of professional  companies which have visited the city.  The audience was large   and   appreciative and agreeably surprised at the  work of the different members of the  caste-,  applauding  irecruently,   especially in tho last act when  the villian  Jim Dalton, and his pal, Meltor Moss,  weie captured.    The scenery, specially  painted lor the production by Lhe Well  known   artist,   Mr. T. H.   Dunne,   as  usual played a pionimcrrl pai t m   the  success ot the eiiteitaminont,   paiticu-  buiv the scene in  the  first act representing the   Bellevue   Tea   Gardens,  which was cei taiuly a   work   of-art,  and St. Nicholas church  vaid m  the  closing  scene,   bolh   of   which   were  highly commended hy the audience.  J. ,\Y. Chilton, although lahoiing  under a seveie indisposition having  been confined to his 100111 lor the past  week, made an excellent BobBrieily"'  and again convinced the public ol  Revelstoke that he is an actor of no  mean -ability.- His rmpeisoiiation of  "The Ticket of Leave Man" left little  to 'be desired.

Ilawkshaw tlio  detective was cleveily portrayed by  XV. A. Sturdy, and T. Hudson as  Green Jones, li. M. Rae'as Mr. Gibson,  C. D. Palmer as Sam Willoughby and  Al. Crosby as Maltby were all good in  their respective patts.  Miss Mae Corley, as May Edwards,  the heroine, had a^diflicull lole, wliich  ������he played-with a naturalness that  evoked the admiration of the audience,  especially in tbo pathetic scenes irr the  first and last acts. Mis. T. II. Donne  was, iit" her best in the tole of J'm.ly  St. JUvromond, which si.e played wilh  a vi,.-.iily veiy picking to ihe audience. As Mit. Wihmtghy, JMi-= C. T.

The daily walk in the open air is  as essential as tlie daily bath; it  should be taken in the early morning, witli the mind open to -ill the  bcautifu.l influences witli which the  air is laden. Tlio sunlight drives  away morbid thoughts; it steals over  the senses with soothing elTect und  the buoyancv that in lelt inwardly is  expressed outwardly.  But perhaps you argue, there nro  many mornings when the sun is not  ���������shining and the weather is inclement,  and ask what you sliall do then.  Take the walk just the same. It it  is gloomy out of doors, it is still  enore gloomy in the house. The  agencies of health' are raver niiorc active in the open air. Go out and  gather them in.  Everybody sliottld bo supplied with  rainy-day ar*parol s-o that a long  Walk may be taken in tho rain without any but good effects from it. One  should become used to all kinds.of  weather in season, and particularly  to the rain. There aro many fastidious French women who walk miles  in the rain, perfectly clad for liie  weather, and Ami that it brings the  color to tie cheeks as no other exercise can. It is like the dew to the  flowers, reviving and unfolding them.  The.������������������degree of benefit obtained from  tho walk regardless of the weather  must greatly depend upon the genera 1 attitude. If it is faltering and  reluctant the good effects will Hardly be noticeable. It must be taken  with confidence, aird not only willingness but eagerness and firm resolve to enjoy it.  Many people will cay that a walk  docs them good when there is an object in it, but otherwise it is irksome, and, therefore, they cannot  avoid taking it listlessly and invariably find it fatiguing. A walk for  health' surely has a great object in  view, but must be taken according  to its rules.  tValik as though you were going  somewhere. You have a definite purpose to serve; let it appear so. Improvement to the circulation cannot  come with a lagging stop. If you  are not well, assume that you are  well. ..     :  Some people- go along the street  with sallow complexions and .a  sliamtoling gait, that seem to cs"k  for pity that they ure* so altogether  ���������weak and miserable. If they would  brace up, hold tlieir heads erect,  throw their shoulders back, take  deep inhalations of thc pure air  and walk briskly they would command not pity, but respect.  Exorcise taken in this way never  fails to do good, rcinforceing tho  vital energies; liands and feet thatl  had been cold and clammy for years  grow warm with' tho free circulation  of the blood, giving not only tlio  appearance of new life but actually  generating it.  SOME STEAMS PURSUITS  SPIDER  FARMERS   AND  DOCTORS.  DOLL  HYGBXIC EXERCISE.  "Muscular action is indispensable to  robust health; but the amount of it  that is required varies with age, sex,  habits and constitution. Most persons who are free from organic dis-  ea.se are benefited by properly directed gymnastic training. Even those  employed at manual labor arc often  impro\c.'l by it, for only certain  groups oi muscles arc exercised in  iho loutinc of daily work, and otheis remain comparatively idle. Liglil  exercise for a few minutes in the evening often acts as a restorative  both to the wearied, muscles and to  tlio exhausted nervous system of one  fatigued in his employment during  the day, particularly if it bo followed by a cold sponge-bath; but as a  nile the morning is a better time for  boih exercise and cold bathing. Invalids may-profit by exercise under  the sujjcrvision of a physician, and  remarkable cures aro sometimes attributable hi great measure to it.  Xo other method is quite so effectual as systematic training under an  intelligent instructor, when this is  ���������aVa i 1 alifo'T'tni l~*v^grca t=dca l-cirn==-b's-  uccoiiiplishcd by home gymnastics if  j-uiFiMenlly practised. In these days  of il.-lick*iit 1-rcat-hing and excessive  liui*.' disease csj-ijcinl attention should  bo directed lo lhe strengthening of  the in'is'.-les of the che-st and abdomen. The exercise should l>c taken  dully and in tlie open nir when the  weather will permit; it should n.;vcr  bo undertaken in a closed room.  Whether dumb-bells and widl-piilloys  or some other method be employed,  the movements should he carried to  the point of inducing deep rcupiration. .Moderate running und bfcy-  rling increase the breulhing power,  ond rowing is regarded as the best  of all  exercises.  A few precautions should bc observed. X'othing more cumbersome  than the regulation costume of the  gymnasium should be worn unless reduction of weight, is desired. Tho  timo limit at the beginning should  be ten or fifteen minutes; it may be  increased gradually to an hour, the  rapidity of the increase corresponding to the physical condition of tho  individual. The weight of each'  dumb-bell for a sound young man  should rarely exceed two pounds, and  that of ouch wall-pulley should be  limited to tliroe pounds'. Kothing  is gained by attempting too much,  ond the improvement of month's may  be checked by the overwork of nn  1'our. The slight soreness of the  muscles during th'o lirst few days  ���������must not, howevor, bo looked upon  us  an  indication  of  overwork.  Lady Dog  Barbers  Are  Common���������  Match-makers Flourish in  London.  In this ago of shams, oven spiders'  webs may bo fraudulently attached to  wine bottles, for there is an elderly  Frenchman, named Pierre Grautairo,  who makes a comfortable competence  by supplying unscrupulous wino dealers with specially-bred spiders, at a  fixed rate of $2.50 a hundred, which  may bo relied upon, if turned looso  amongst wino bottles, to nt onco  proceed to spin abundant webs upon  thcm. The reason of this i.s that  Pierre Grantuire keeps a largo establishment at Philadelphia, .which  he devotes to. breeding spiders. They  arc kept in dark, cool rooms, wliich  arc rendered fly-proof by means ol  double folding doors, between which  a mospquilo curtain is stretched,  and the spiders uro allowed to roam  at their will about shelves, on whicli  are pluced numerous empty port bottles.  If a spider spins on the wall or In  a corner of a shelf, its web is proinp-  ly destroyed by thc owner; but if one  of these creatures spins on a bottle  it is promptly rewarded with a fly-  Spiders that refuse to spin on bottled arc kept without food, and from  time to time, tr. encourage them to  make their* w-ms on bottles, Gran-  talre sticks live flies on the glass  with spirit gum. and in the course of  time the spidera become trained to  only spin on bottles.  SPIDERS G ET. FROZEN.  When their education is thus completed, they are placed in separate  compartments in light Wooden boxes  and dispatched by parcels post to  the fraudulent wine merchants, who  make use of thim to give their bottles tho appearpneo ot twenty, years'  storage in cellars cool.  Should the destination of "these  industrious spinners be Europe, thoy  are previously frozen and are placed  in the refrigerating chamber during  the voyage.

Mrs. Bliss observantly noted,  as ho camo up thc sunlit path, t'hat  his walk wa.s slow and his faco  moody, as though despondency oppressed him.  "Anything for me, Joe?" she asked, brightly,  when  lic entered.  "Not oven a post-card," he answered, gruffly, removing his cap,  bag and cont with obvious relief.  "I'll havo to got you to write me  a little note some time," pursued th'o  widow, coquettishly, "just for tho  pleasure of receiving  one."  "You might send a line to yourself, come to that," returned Joo,  rather irritated by her blandishments.  "Two rnsliors?"  sho  inquired,  with  .   midden  chilliness.  "None, thank ye, this morning. A  bite o' bread'll do me. My appotito's  clean gone."  "You shouldn't confess that, Joe,"  cautioned Mrs. Bliss, again venturing  on coquetry. "It makes one thiuk  thlngs."  "Then keep on thinking 'cm,  ma'am, if it does you any good,"  was the ungracious response. "It's  not likely to do mc any "arm."  This second rebuff crushed th'e amiable widow entirely; add, wondering  what had so rifflled her lodger's temper, slie withdrew in dudgeon to the  scullery and busied* herself with  -household affairs.  Heaving a prodigious sigh", Joe  flung himself into his chair and,  without any attempt to cat, leisurely sipped his tea from the saucer  and gave himsolf up to his reflections. Has solemn face nnd puckered brow seemed to indicate that  these-werc somewhat unpleasant; perplexing, too, if one might judge from  his restlessly tlirumming fingers and  mouth pursed as for whistling. He  sat for nearly half an hour with little chango of posture, an'd after tliat,  rising - abruptly, donned a broad-  ' -brimmed straw hat and went off- to  ���������J   tlie Kay-field.

Nat'rally, tho minuto 'e was  out o' sight I was over tliat 'odgo  and on to tho bank, lookin' to seo  if th'o letter was still tliere.

"I'vo heard some such nonsense,  but I don't believe it."  That's 'cos you want 'im yourself."

"Of course," said George, winking. "But there's no chance of 'im  asking you while 'e 'as 'opes o' Sally. And so long as this 'ore letter  don't roach 'er 'o 'as every chance  o' getting Sally straight away."  "How do you know that?" asked  tho widow,  eagerjy.  "Because," replied George, impressively, "sho promised Joe faithfully  that if no letter come to 'or afore tho  end o' this week 'o could put up  their banns whenever 'e liked.

"Phis announcement sobered George  In a single second, and h'e looked  across at her with a vengeful glare.  " 'Ere, none o' that!" he bawled.  "A bargain's a bargain.

"Nevor you mind 'ow," replied  George, his fnco falling, nevertheless,  as he realized his impotence. But in  the next breath his discomfiture vanished under the light of a new inspiration, and folding th'o letter, ho  slipped it in" its envelope, anil restored both to his pocket. "P'r'aps," ho continued, with a grin of  malicious triumph, "someone else  may find it worth" buying, now we  know what's insido���������and, , p'r'aps  they'll give more'n five bob, too."

"I'm not afraid o' that, 'cos she'd  find out then you'd opened 'or let-  tor. It's no go, M'ria. You've been  a hit too smart for onco in your life.  Bye-bye!"  With maddening winks and gniiles  Georgo rose and backed towards the  door.  "Here, George, conic back!" cried  Mrs.  Bliss,  distractedly.  But ho passed out, shutting the  door behind him, and a minute later  had entirely disappeared from. view.  Mrs. Bliss at first started u,p to  pursue him, then, changing, her mind  irresolutely took a few turns up and  down the kitchen. At length, after  a careful weighing of pros and cons,  she put on her liat and hurried out,  reassured by the thought t'hat sho  could at any rate reduce Joe Pum-  mock to temporary obedience by intimidation. Arriving at the field  whore ho 'had gone to work, she was  just in time to see"" down a vista of  haycocks, the figures of George and  the. postman climbing thc stile at the  other "end. Convinced t'hat thoy  were bound for Vindcn's general  grocery  in     the  village  street  continued, pointing suddenly to Joe.  "There's gttflt printed on liis face."  Under tho combined scrutiny of all  eyes the unhappy Joo quailed visibly,  and performed a slow and uneasy  dance as though the flooring had  grown red-hot,  " 'E can't bear to bo ubjustly suspected,"   explained   George.  "Can't he?" shrieked Mrs. Bliss.  "He'll have to bear more than that  before lie's 'done. Before night ho'll  find himself in Croxetcr Gaol."  Sally Vlniien was tlio only one of  the trio who remained unmoved by  this somhro threat.  "What for?" she asked, serenly.  "Playing pltch'-and-toss with' his  letters, that's what for," roturncd  Mrs. Bliss, vindictively. "You know  as well as I do that George's story  is all lies, and that this other tliicf  dropped your letter into tho brook  so as h'e needn't deliver it. IA nice  sort of postman ho is!."  *"Ifa" my letter, anyhow," eald  Sally, contemptuously flicking her  finger at the missivo, "and I don't  caro what -ho did with it."  "You'll find thc postmaster won't  let him olT for that!"  "Won't he?" asked Sally. "I  think it'd bo bettor, Mrs. Bliss, if  you'd mind your own business.  Postmasters or no postmasters, I  moan to do what I like with my  own property. You see, I happened  to know this letter would come sooner or later, and I told Joe whenever it "did h'e was simply to destroy  it for me, 'cos I didn't want it. He  did qu.ito right to throw it in, the  brook, though" he ought to have  torn it  up  first."  Joe's eyes nearly started from his  head, and he- cast at Sally a look  pregnant with gratitude.  "Would you swear that in a  court?" said Mrs. Bliss, leaning forward and  regarding her fixedly.  "Yes," replied Sally, very white  and determined; "in any court you  like to namo. So now, if you're anxious to show yourself up, you may  trot off and soo your precious postmaster as soon as yott please."  Mrs. Bliss stood and ga/cd at her  a moment longer, and then went ���������  but not to the postmaster.

"Ypu don't look.'like it; but     you  ought to be good for that.".  "Well, I'm not going to haggle  wifh you," she said, firmly. . "I'll  give you five.- Take it or ..leave it."'  George scratched His head and considered tho offer. Finally, convinced  that she,"was 'in earnest, ho said,  gruffly,  "alright.    Monoy fust."  "Oh, no," objected the widow;  "none of that. I know you."  _ Again_Goorge-'dcemed_it-expedicnt  to yield. Fumbling in his pocket ho  drew out tho letter���������which bore tho  red and black stamp of tho Transvaal���������and tossed it on the table.  Save for a rather blistered appearance and a coating of grimo acquired by contact whilo damp with  George's pocket, it seemed little th'e  worse for Its immersion. Mrs. Bliss  hastily sprang up and seized* it, and  lifting the lid from tho kettle held,it  over tlie" ascending column of steam.  " 'Ere wait a bit," criod George,  anxiously. "Whore's my five bob?"  "Don't be alarmed," sho answered,  with an ironical smilo. "I'll pay as  soon as I know you haven't cheated  me. But I'vo more .sense than to  buy a pig in a poke from you."  Witli the aid of a table-knife she  was soon able to raise the flap of  tho envelope, and she drew out and  perused with undisguised eagerness  the brief letter it contained.,  George's, easy grin changed to' gap"-  irig astonishment when she flung the  sheet petulantly on the table and  dropped back into her chair with a  little squeal of'dismay.  "What's the matter?" ho asked.  "It's no uso at all," she cried, in  a fury. "You might as well have  left   it  in  the brook."  "WJiat d'yo mean?" ho demanded;  then, snatching up th'e letter to learn  for  himself,  ho  read ns  follows:���������  "Hear Sarah,���������I'm sorry I'vo been  so long in writing to you, but I've  been vory busy.

Reason warned Mrs. Bliss now to  abandon the struggle, but jealousy  and curiosity spurred hor on. After.  a sharp mental conflict she threw  caution to the winds, and advancing  to the dhop-door opened it and  plunged boldly in. Comely Sally  Vinden- sat behind the counter, on  which reposed tho fatal letter; while  George and Joe, the latter pale and  shame-fa'ced, stood on the outer side.  All looked round sharply at: the newcomer, but George,- betraying no  surprise, greeted her with a ready  laugh.  . "'Alloa, M'ria!" he said. " 'Ero'3  all th'e 'appy family now."  "I'm.-obliged to you" foi- -opening  my letter, Mrs. Bliss," observed Sally,  icily.  ".Who said I opened your letter?'-'  dom-anded thc widow.  ".You'd--, better ask your brother  that."

For headache and drowsiness take  a cup of tea with the juice of half  a lemon in it instead of milk. The  offect  is  wonderful.  Drink a breakfast cupful of hot-  milk beforo , retiring, nnd a peaceful  night's rest will bo obtained. This  is a hint to those who suffer from  insomnia.  If you suffer from indigestion take  one or two teaspoonfuls of puro glycerine in about half a wino glass of  cold wator, cither before, with, or  after food.  Tho water that has no taste is purest; the air that hns no odor is  freshest; and, of all tlie modifications  of manner, the most generally pleasing is simplicity..  Keep a separate saucepan for cooking all green vegetables, etc., in;  do not allow it to bo used for stows,  etc for no food material absorbs  flavor moro quickly than vegetables.  It is the custom ia well-regulated  houses not to merely renew the air,  but to cause tho air to blow through"  tho house for a considerable time  ovei-y day, when the weather permits it.  When washing flannel no soda  should be used. The water must be  lukewarm and well lathered wilh  soap. Again, it i.s most important  that good flannel should be neither  mangled nor ironed.  Those with tender feet may be  pleased to know that a hole punched on either side of patent leather  boots or shoes just at tlie instep,  about one inch from tlio sole, will,  in walking, pump in tho air, an'd  tend to keep the foet cool.  To clean looking-glasses you must  first wash tho glass all over witli  lukewarm soa>"-suds and a sponge.  Whon dry rub it with a buckskin and  a littlo prepared chalk, finlcly powdered. A splendid gloss may be also  given to glasses by rubbing quickly  with newspapers.  Caramel sauce is a great addition  to a plain milk pudding, "or steamed  custard. Put    a handfal  of     loaf  sugar into a saucepan, add a little  water, and set the pan on the fire  till . the caramel becomes a dark  brown color. Add more boiling water to produce a coffee-colored liquor,  flavor with canllla. and the same is  ready. Stir thc sugar a little as it  boils.  Rhubarb .water is not so much  drunk as it should bo.

'At this srn.son of the year, when  every farmer's wife and some not  living on farms, find the time between daylight and darkness scarcely  sufficient, for tho pickling, canning  and drying that must be done now  if at all, some timely suggestions  might come handy and thc following  recipes relieve tho monotony of the  every day hill of fare.  Sour Cucumber Pickles���������This recipe is very simple to make and the  pickles can he kept in any ordinary  open jar for two years if dos-ired.  Wash the cucumbers nnd place in a  brine that will bear up an egg, leaving them 24 hours, then remove nnd  cover thorn with boiling water, letting it stand until cold. In preparing your vinegar tnko 1 gal. ci'dcr  vinegar, 1 teacup salt and 1 tablespoon of alum. Put in your cucumbers and your pickles are made.  Sweet Cucumber Pickle���������Choose  laigo green cucumbers, wash and  place in a brine thut will bear up an  egg, leaving them threo days, then  remove to a clear water, letting  stand three days. For the vinegar,  for 7 lbs. fruit, use 3 lbs sugar, 3  qts cider \incgar, 1 ounce each cinnamon, allspice and celeiy seed with a  small piece of alum. Heat the vinegar and turn on cucumbers for three  mornings, when they ure ready for  use.  Mustard Pickle���������Ono qiiait large  cucumbers cut In medium sized  chunk. 1 qt. small cucumbers, 1 qt.  sliced tomatoes, 1 qt. 'cauliflower cut  in chunks. Put in a weak brino for  24 hours, then scald in 'tho samo  brine and drain several   hours.    For  HINTS ON BUTTER MAKING.  In tho first place it is necessary for  the milk to be strained immediately  and cooled as quickly as possible to  get the most and best cream. This  sliould be put in stone or granite  vessels and kept sweet until a- short  timo beforo churning, though pome  prefer butter made from sweet cream.  But the majority of people ripen  tlieir cream, thus giving the butter  its charajctcristic taste, and, too,  moro butter is obtained from ripened  crca-m than" cream"cliurned wliile it is  sweet.  For n dairy of but fow cows sour  skim milk is the best and most practical starter. For larger dairies artificial starters nro vcry common and  work much qi.icker. It should bo  woll mixed through th'o cream, which  is kept at a    temperature of GO���������Go  degrees, nnd_ ripened    ir.  12  to 24  hours.     Well  ripened  croam  v. ill  stir  like thick paint and should bc at   a  temperature of .*jG-60 degrees, though  this varjes with different cows nnd  their feed. A few drops of butter  color is quite necessary, especially  during th'e winter months. Thirty  minutes', churning is required for the  average creani.  Wlien the butter forms in kernels  nbout as large us^a kernel of wheat  wash' immediately and wn:,h but once.  About one nnd one-eighlh ounces of  snlt to a pound of butter is the rule,  but if the butter contains a great  amount of water moro salt i.s required. Work slightly and let stand  until the next day, then give the final working, which is just enough to  take out tho streaks and most of the  water,   1   LICENSING HECOMD.

Strange as tt may seem, there waa  onco a little boy who was at tho  samo time a little pig. His fathen  and his mother were ashamed of hiru  and never liked to take him with  them when they went visiting. The  boy didn't look like a pig.���������oh, not  in tha least!���������because his mother*  kept Him ever so clean, and his hale  was soft and curly.  Wlien he was asleep, ono would  never have dreamed that ho was a  uig; and sometimes, when his mother,  tucked him in bed nt night, ilie tears  enmc as she thought how badly hcr*.  only  child  acted   when  awake.  That boy wanted tho best of everything,���������the biggest, orange, tho largest piece of pio, the most candy; ia  fact, he acted exactly like a pig, although, ae hs grew older, he reminded one of a polite pig, if there ever,  was such an animal. When, he was a,  little fellow, ho used to squeal and  fight if lie couldn't havo what ha  wanted, but his father cured him of  that beforo ho was threo years old.  The little boy. was seven when hia  Aunt Augusta Arlington gavo a  house party, and invited all the re-  lathes. Aunt Augusta Arlington  lived in the country, and the boy  vas delighted when the invitation'  came, until his mother shook her  head nnd told him she guessed that  her family better stay at home. Ho  know why she didn't want to go. an<l  he promised his mother that ho would  try to be unselfish, if she -aould only,  trust him. So they went to tho  house party.  The vcry first night at Aunt Augusta Arlington's the little boy waa  tempted. On the supper table was a  plato of cake exactly in front of liim.  Tho boy liked cake. He liked it so  well he could scarcely cat his bread  and butter, thinking how much ho  wanted the largest piece. Finally,  after he had thought and thought  about it, the boy. noticed that tho  largest piece of cake on the plato  was tlie one nearest to him. Tlien ha  rejoiced. because his mother had  taught him that, when anything was  passed, he must tako the nearest  piece.  Only one thing troubled the boy.  Possibly the cake might not bo passed to him first. As it happened, Aunt.  Augusta "Arlington saw the boy looking wistfully at the- cake, and told  him to help himself, and pass tho  plate. "Although the boy's mother-  was looking at him, from, across tho  table, he determined to take the biggest piece, and tell her afterward  that he had to. because it was tho  nearest to him.  It was a queer-sliaped piece of cako  ���������curiously large at one end, and  small at tho other. Tt was really  two pieces close together, hut tho  boy didn't notice that until it was  too late. Such a happy smiled lighted thc mother's face when she saw,  her boy lake" the tiniest piece of cako  bn the* plate. Of course, she didn't  know it was a mistake, and, in a  moment, when the boy recovered from  his surprise, he smiled back at his  mother.  Some way that tiny, piece of cako  lasted unusually good." The boy ato  it slowly. It was so pleasant to  have pleased his mother, oven though."  h'e did it by mistake! The littlo  boy decided, that it was nicer than  having tho biggest piece of anything.  Before the party was over, Auat  Augusta "Arlington called hcr nieces  and nephews a flock of little lambs.*  She said there wusn't a single pig ,  among  lhem.  SENSE OF DIRECTION".

An instance of similar sense of direction was the ruse of a lady of  whom I knew. who. being very much  annojed by n. certni:'. toad which  would burrow in lier plant pots,  sought to rid herself of him by repeated removals, the last ono being  half a mile away.

He fir**t placed  hi*n_ncros������ the road in thc ditch, but  in a few hours found him again ia  the barn. Trying this" n train with no  better succss. he took the toad by a  hind leg and threw him out across a  pasture lot. The selfrtimc toad reappeared in the barn after a few  hours. The man then carried him  under cover into a neighboring orchard, still more remote, but tho  very next morning found him at his  old  post  in the barn.  This melted the gentleman's heart,  and he said, "Mr. Toad, ii yov, liko  me as well as this, I shall never turn,  you off again."   -f       .

The elections are over and tlie Liberal party has been returned to power  by an increased majority. The possibility of the government being returned by a small majority was conceded  from the first, but that it would be  returned by so large, a majority .was  entirely 'unlooked,'for, even by onr  staunch- Liberal friends themselves'.  One- of the most regrettable features  ot tbe campaign is the defeat of Mr.  Borden, tbo leader of the Conservative party. Tbe loss tn the Commons  and to the country will be very great.  That the .Government lias loo large a  majority for the good of the country  there is no one who wiil deny. It has  been the history of th'o past that a  government so strong that it can  absolutely override by its immense  majority the fullest discussion of public measures is a danger .to the welfare  of the country, and in this connection  the ���������Hekatld' will reproduce from the  Vancouver Province (Liberal) extracts  from an editorial appearing under the  ciption "Danger in Large "Mjaoritios."  in its issue of Satuiday last, Nov. 5th :  "It i.s now conceded that the .uajoi-  iiy which the Government has already  -c-ceived is about seventy.    *    *���������   *  "We   imagine   however,   that    the  Literals themselves'will conclude that  the country has con.-mlerabiy overshot  the   mark,  and   in     its  eagerness to  '���������spre.*s its  confidence  in the Government and endorse its policy has placed  ���������a-powerHn���������t!ie---!!a:!d������-of-t!i!iJLiberaLi  party wliich  it  is  not right it should  ]>*i-.-eji.-.     Iliat that power, extensive  ii- il i.-. will  be exercised  with entire  h'-nesty   by   the   Premier, cannot  be  i|iit.-tioiU'd.    The record of bis whole  political   life   is a guarantee   of   tbis.  And   that   the   majority   of   his  col-  li-asuc-s  in   tiie   Cabinet, if   not all of  thcm. are actuated   by the .same spirit  of   political integrity   and zeal for the  genera!   public   -welfare   it   would be  very  improper   to   dispute: but while  accepting   all   this   witb the frankest  disposition,   we   think   that   tho best  clement  in   the Liberal party will regret, a.s sincerely as the Conservatives  could, that   the   majority   is  so overwhelming.  '���������A strong Government was indeed  desirable, one wliich would be able to  override captious criticism and brush  aside unreasonable and perverse opposition, but with a majority of from  twenty tb twenty-five in a House of  two bundled and fourteen members  the Ministry would have been able to  accomplish this satisfactorily, and it  still would -have been amenable to  just criticism and sensitive to public  opinion.    ���������    *    ���������>  The history of party Government  everywhere demonstrates the danger  to the best interests of the people  ���������which exists in granting to an administration   Ihe   jiower of crushing, by  means of an immense majority, the  amplest discussion of public measures.  Tliere is thereby introduced into Parliament itself that spirit of prejudice  and oppression whicli nover fails to  have its ueliex action on the country.  But it is not so much from party tyranny in Parliament that danger is to  be feared, although this is by no  means to be ignored. If it stopped at  the autocratic imposition of measures,  no.matter how objectionable, the evil  could easily be remedied at a future  election by a more prudent exercise of  the franchise by the.people. The real  danger strikes much deeper. ��������� ft is in  the oppoi'tunily which is given for the  introduction of the spoils system, regarded in the widest interpretation of  the word, that the great peril lies. .  . . . AVe are all quite well aware  that a Ministry, no ."matter what ils  personality or what course it may  pursue, will be blindly followed by the  majority of its supporters, in parliament'' and the danger always exisls  that, to take the mildest view of the  c.ise, a Government will saciillcc high  principle to political expediency. ������  ".Like Individuals, Governments,  when once they possess power, desire  tj retain it. and that they will take  means, and often improper means, to  entrench themselves in .office, we realize only too fully by the courso which  his been pursued by past administrations in our own Dominion, as well as  in our provinces. This policy of entrenchment is intimately associated  with the sacrifice of the rights and  property of tbe people to individuals  and corporations as well as with the  appointment to oflice of men, for  political considerations, and not by  iv-ason of merit, in all branches of the  cjuntry's services. To resist the  pressure of influential members of the  party is often'difficult for Governments; it is more difficult and less  necessary, from the standpoint  of ex-  Notwitlistanding reports to the contrary, candidate Mackintosh will stay  in the race until the end. In tbis  campaign lie represents an issue���������  government ownership of railways  and telegraphs���������and by staying in the  race, be gives the people a chance to  vote, not for a man or a party, but for  or against an issue tbat the people of  Canada must meet, sooner or later.���������  Nelson Tribune.  pediency, when they ave excessively  powerful, for It is then they are in a  position to make friends who will subsequently be of essential service to  them.  "We all remember the dispairing cry  of the Hon. Alexander Mackenzie, undeniably one of the most honest a.s be  was one of the ablest of Canada's  Premiers, that he was forced to stand  over tbe Treasury box with a shotgun  in band to ward off the political wolves  of his own party, Political wolves exist to-day as they did between 1873  and 1S7S; and they will always exist  in the Liberal, as in the Conservative  party, and'will never cease their ravening cry when spoils are in sight.  "AVe have, too, an example, in the  present Government of Ontario, of the  peril to the country's liberties through  the opportunity, afforded by large majorities, of ministerial entrenchment.  For years under Sir Oliver Mowat that  policy wa.s pursued not flagrantly, perhaps, but steadily and unchangeably,  and it has enabled the Ross administration through eight years to defy the  unquestionable desire of^the people of  that province for a change of Government. Premier Ross is to-day holding  ollice not by tbe will of the electors,  but as a gift from liis astute predecessor.  "These   are  only  some of the evils  Of  Mining . Properties  in Fish  River   District ��������� Camp   vvill  Bear Comparison with any on  American Continent. .  "In the Camborne camp you have  one of the richest: and best mining  sections I ever saw. 'You have natural  tunnel sites'.which make mining easy  and inexpensive, all the timber required in a mine can be secured right  at your tunnel's inouth, and the best  of all'you have within easy distance  of any property in the camp, all the  water power you want for operating  your mines."  These words emanated from Mr.  Newton AV. ISmmens, M.E., a mining  export from Pittsburg, Penn. Mr.  Einniens came in here to examine the  Silver Dollar group for the '"hvr.od  Tinworkers Mining' Co. of Elwood,  Indiana. Mr. Einniens holds a great  opinion of the Silver Dollar, lle  spent several days on the ground and  went into the minutest detail, and as  a result is convinced that with  proper management the property will  make a valuable producing thine.  On Mohawk creek he found surface  showings as rich as be ever saw anywhere, ,".nd he likened tbem to the  properties found on the Mother Lode  lead in California. Mr. Emmons during his ten-day stay visited all the  important properties of the camp.  On Menhenick creek he examined the  Independence and Nelson group and  was greatly taken up with the appearance of these two properties. He  visited the Eva.and Oyster-Criterion  mines on Lexington mountain and  gave it as hi.s opinion that these properties with good management are sine  to become dividend payers. He was  surprised at- the amount of developmentwork that has boen done on  the  Who Got the Lead Bounty  During the last provincial campaign  it was hurrah for Retallack he is the  man who secured the bounty for the  lead producers, now AV. A. Galliher is  running for political honors, the same  party goes back on friend Ketallack  and shouts hurrah for Galliher, he is  the man who saved the country by  getting lho lead bounty. Dr. Sinclair,  thc Rossland Liberal, laid claims to a  soiiatorship because he was tho man  who secured tho lead homily. John  Keen, the president of the B. C.  Mining Association, will bc the next  man who will claim that enviable  position. As a matter of fact no  individual can claim tho credit, it was  .     G  secured by the people of the  Kootenays who are demanding relief and if any individual credit is  given there are dozens of men who  done just as much as the ones mentioned. AVhon the proposal to protect  our lead industry lirst came up.in the  house, AV. A. Galliher asked for a  protective tarilf on the manufactures  of lead and when asked by the minister of finance if a duty of 2J cents per  pound would be sufficient was satisfied  but when a resolution was brought in  by Mr. Borden to that effect Mr.  Galliher voted against it after he had  practically acknowledged that a protective tariff wat the right thing.  Consistency thou art a jewel.���������Trout  Lake Topic.  o  Bad Coin.  Coins of the Straits Settlements and  Hong Kong are circulating to some  extent in Rossland and in this district  generally being accepted by merchants  iit their face value. It is stated, that  they are being sent into the interior  by some sharpers at the coast, who  buy them at 53 cents dn the dollar of  their face value and palm them off  nn unsuspecting people at full value.  They will not pass ' current in coast  cities, and banks will not accept them  anywhere, Tliose who do accept them  at their face -value may therefore  count on being loaded up with them.  The chance of loss is increased hy  taking the Straits Settlements- or  Hong Kong 20 cent piece for a quarter,  as that coin is intrinsically worth only  a little over 10 cents. Several years  ago two unscrupulous travellers bought  up some .���������"55,000 of the.coins in the east  and unloaded them on the unwary people in Victoria and Vancouver. They  paid for the silver at that time less  than 50 cents on the- dollar in gold  and therefore made a handsome profit  by passing them off at par. The coins  were a nuisance to coast merchants  for a considerable time. If they are  allowed to circulate at par in the interior plenty of them will be suro. to  float this way.  t#b������     psa ������, U������>      *Af/-V>j   B e.r_-J  SOCIETIES.

'Two months ago he did not know  there was such a place as the Camborne camp in existence and expressed  surprise. Ihat such a, rich section  should be so little known.

Sho received him in a conservatory,  a pleasant contrast to thc snowy  out-door world, with' its palms, orange-trees, oleanders, and semi-tropical flowers which reminded him of  his last meeting with" Ada Maynard.  '���������Never let ine regret," ho seemed to  hear Ada say. in h'er moving voice.  "It 4s easy enough to die. Living  is th'e hard part."  "Oh!" thought Clara, rising from  the silk and gold oriental stuffs covering a low divan-like seat beneath  a palm near a fountain, and seeing  the strong, lance-straight figure, the  bronzed face and straightforward  gaze, "she might have been content.  She might have left my darling to  me."  Then sho told Philip, that, having  introduced Jessie to that house, sho  felt in some degree responsible  h'er, and wished to explain to- hor  guardian, ns far as she knew, all  that had occurred before the sudden  disappearance. She described the intimacy which had so suddenly siming  up, in her own fashion, and dwelt  upon Jessie's charm and intellect in  a way that surprised Philip. "1 hud  heard reports," she said, "tliat T  did not believe. Jessie seemed so  artless, spoke so openly of her engagement showed me your portrait.  Who could believe wrong of her?"  "Who indeed?" echoed Philip,  gloomily.  "Jt was not until July," she    continued,   "that   my    suspicions     were  aroused."  "So long ago?"  ������������������Aroused and confirmed at once,"  she went on. "Arriving uncxpoctly  at Marwell one evening, T surprised  an 'interview in thc gallery."  "Oh!" cried Philip, "why was I  not  told  in time?"  "Xo one but Miss Medway was in  the house at the time. The scene  was painful in the extreme. Still, I  hoped it might bc nothing moro than  girlish vanity. I afterward spoke  seriously to hcr. pointing out tht���������  tho danger of such an intimacy. It  was then, Captain Randal, that I  discovered how greatly I had boon  mistaken in a girl 1 had thought so  sweet and guileless.

No more time was wasted at  Cleeve ��������� Leaving Roger Plummer  and even Mr. Ingleby in happy ignorance of the latest intelligence of Jessie, Philip, appeared at Claude Mod-  way's house in town thc second  morning  after hi.s  visit  to  Marwell.  He was shown into a room near  tho door, opening into thc small  hall, while a servant took his card  in. The door being left ajar, ho  could hear all that passed there.  "No use," a servant-wa.s saying to  a pallid, disreputable, elderly man  whom ho had observed on entering,  "Orders strict. As much as my  placo i.s worth. The captain won't  | see you, out or in. You'd bettor bo  olT."'  "He must see me," lie said, "I  havo to meet a bill, and haven't a  blessed shilling in the  world."  "Walker," returned thc servant impatiently. "Come, hook it, will  you? He's said he'll see you Wednesday."  "On-ly  a   minute,"   the  shabby  suppliant. whined     with  maudlin     tears; j  "may  you   never  know,  young    man, j  what it is to want-���������"  "Come, slow it and be off, and  take und'"write what you want to  thc governor," cried the servant.,  losing patience and bundling him unceremoniously out cf doors after a  slight scuffle. "If there's much, more  of this,  Charles, I give warning," Ko  years seemed to have cast their  shadow over Claude M-edway's haggard face, his sunken eyes had a harassed gaze, his manner hnd not the  old assurance, ho looked like one  who has passed tlirough' despat'atc  mental anguish. And yot things had  "gone well with him. Marwell Court  was no longer in danger ns an old  aunt had d'ied suddenly, leaving behind all her fortune. Philip had hoard  of his disappearance from club life  ns well as from the service, he had  been living in seclusion, nobody  knew where, over sinco before tho  golden shower descended upon him.  Philip did nppoar to see tho hand  offered hiin. "Yes," he replied, "my  coming home wus sudden and unpremeditated. I came at a moment's'  warninL' iu consequence of what I  heard concerning my ward and ndopt-  sistor, Miss Jcssio Meudc. Where is  she?"  Th'o momentary radiance diod from  Claude Medway's face. "Is it possiblo that you do not know?" lie returned.      "She did  not  tell you?"  "Certainly not. 1 am here to ask  whero sho is. 1 ain ono of h'er gttur-  .dians and she is under uge. This is  a very serious ulTair, Captain Medway. This young lady has been missing for nearly three mouths and hcr  friends have been unable to Iind any  trace  ot  hcr."  "It is both sad and serious,"  Claudu replied: "to mo it is, and  has been a subject for deep regret.  But why, may 1 osl*, do you come  to mo for information?"  "For the. simple reason tliat X'ou  am the only person iu a position to  givo  it."  "And what leads you to thai supposition?" ho asked quiolly.  "I know perhaps moro than you  think. I havo seen Sally. Samson  and  lieard  all."  "Who is Sally Samson?"  "This man is a good actor,"  thought I'hilip, almost aghast at his  tranquil way of putting the question.  "Do you expect me to believe, that  you know nothing of tlio ark on thu  river's  bank?"  hc said,  sternly.  "I. know the ark well," Claude re-  pliod; an old woman lives there and  ferries people across. Is that your  Sally Samson? What of hcr?"  - "Only thai she tol'd mo tlio true  story  of  the handkerchief."  "Tho handkerchief���������Ah!" his face  quivered slightly. "And what oi it?"  "It is unnecessary to tell what you  know loo well," Philip said, impatiently. "Let us have no beating  about tho bush. Tell me at once  whero Jessie is. You cannot expect  to blind mo as you havo blinded others. I. have evidence, solid ovi'dence,-.  to justify legal proceedings.

I am nearly sure that with or  without, consent, carrying olT'a minor  is abduction."  Claude looked at Philip wilh dumb  surprise, .then ho turned from liim  and  took a few  turns in. the room.  "Pray take a seat," hc said at  last,   but   I'hilip  preferred   to  stand.  "It is not very easy." said Claude,  "to abduct a young lady fully  grown, and in possession of all h'er  faculties iu a thickly populated country lined with railways. You cannot surely moan to insult your sister  by supposing hcr capable of running  nway with me. You, who have  known her all  hor life."  'You do yourself injustice," Philip  returned: "to a young girl quite* ignorant of the world, a secret marriage witli a man like you. though  not strictly right, would not appear  so'very great a degradation,"  | "You think, then; that I have  (married her?" he asked with a peculiar emphasis.  |    "Heaven     only     knows   wliat  you  ���������have' done.

"That is a lie," Philip cried at  last; "you cannot hide hcr long in a  country liko this. Unless, indeed,  you have taken her abroad."  "You aro ma*d," Claude returned  with cold contempt. ,  "Not mad enough to believe all  thia," I'hilip flashed out. "X know  that you met h'er ami liad a secret  understanding with her from the  lirst. That, you took advantage of  your sister's infirmity to make love  to h,er. 'Hint'you wore once surprised  when your sister  was asleep      ���������"  "Uy my cousin; could she expect  Miss Meade to leave oil reading  aloud nnd wake my sister, and me  to stump heavily awny in search of  another  chaperon     than  the  sleeping  child "  "   I  know  that you  gavo     her  jewels and money���������I have evidence.���������"  "Then you know more than I do,"  ropliod    Claudo,     quietly.       "Hesidcs  you insult her by tho assumption."  "Tliat you were alone with her tho  day bef-oro hcr disappearance, that  yoii distressed her exceedingly, tolling her that it wns too late to draw  back, tliat you then arranged thc 'details of her flight, her leaving tho  carrier within a mile of tho town at  Wcllow Cross and turning down toward the river, whero the handkerchief farce was gone through���������"  "If, ns you say," interrupted  Claude, with a singular expression in  Iii.t dilating oyes, "X met the lady  alone in the storm, who but herself  could havo told you of tho supposed  conversation'?"  "Tlint remains to bo seen," returned Thilip. "Sally Samson herself  told mo that sho rowed Jessie with  her luggage���������by the way, even ladies  don't usually tnko luggage whon  committing suicido���������to Lynmouth,  and saw hcr on board thcrboat which  catches tho three o'clock express to  Waterloo."  "Ditl Miss Meade carry hor luggage  from the currier's cart to tho ark?"  ho interrupted, with what Philip  thought,  well-feigned interest.  "That part was well managed. Sally's nephew fetched it from the inn  where it was loft to bo called for.  You, cannot deny that on tho same  day you pretended to be called unexpectedly to London, that you  drovo to' Cleeve station in a dogcart with only a groom, whom you  left behind nt tho station. That  you caught the boat at Lynmouth���������  even tho boat's name is known, Tho  Lord of tho Isles���������and that you travelled by the three o'clock express to  Waterloo."  "X drove to Cleeve and took tho  train; I went in tho Lord of tho Isles  and caught, the tliree express to  Waterloo, all that is true; but I  travelled alone. Ingleby went by  the same express, the train was long,  I did not sco him, hc did not sec me,  and unless he is an unusually powerful liar, hc did not sco Miss .Meade."  "You would, of course, have pro-  vented   that."  "What was th'o price of Sally Samson's valuable information?

MAKING   CIDER  AND   VINEGAR.  Commence with the earlier apples as soon ns they mature,  "sorting them, putting the fresh  juice, as soon as made, preferably in open tanks covered with a  thin cloth to keep -out insects, adding fresh juice from time to timo as  made. If tanks aro not available  put the juice in barrels, leaving the  bungs out and kooping them filled up  during the first fermentation so that  tho impurities may work out through  the buughole.  For convenience have the ban-els  or tank raised from the ground  about il feet, so that thc contonts  may bo racked off directly into other  barrels with a hose usod as a siiphon  or with a faucet. Racking with a  siphon i.s a very convenient way, as  it is quickly done and saves m,uch  timo nnd trouble. Hose used for  this purposo should be about $ inch  in diameter, stiff enough not to kink  or collapse, and 6J to 7 feet long.  In ust! raise the end of the hose  about an inch' Trom the bottom of  the barrel which is being drawn  from, so as not to disturb the sediment which may have accumulated.  When tho first fermentation is fully completed, and the juice is settled  and clear, it should bo racked off into clean barrels and th'e empty ones  thoroughly cleaned, ready to be usod  again. These barrels should bc filled  only about three-fourths full, and  sliould bo racked up in a warm placo  for the winter. A furnace heated  cellar is a good place, but a cool  collar will not facilitate vinegar  making.  If a warm room is .not to be had,  use a ahed inclosed on all sides, so  thnt it may be darkened in warm  weather-to keep out'flies, and from  the beetles which bore into the heads  arrd staves of tho barrels, causing  much trouble and  WASTE FROM LEAKAGE.  Tt is not advisable to rank up tho  barrels outside in the sun, as they  will be apt to be infested with borers and the sun will warp an-d shrink  them and much of thc-stock wasted.  - The vinegar stock can be loft in  this shed during tho winter and allowed to freeze. Ihtt as soon as it  is thawed out in the spring tlio barrels should be rolled over to thoroughly mix the contents, as in tho  process of freezing the watery portion of the juice is soparated from  the heavier,   and  it  will  rise  to   the  wanted,  and that low grade,   cloudy  goods nro not  in 'demnnd.  CIDER FOR TABLE  USE.  In making cider for use as a bov-  erago or to keop 'during tho winter  month's, n treatment almost directly  opposite to that intended for vinegar is necessary. Good, keeping cid-  or cannot bo made in warm weather.  For winter use it should be made as  late as possible, preferably in freo-v  ing weather, out of good apples, of  course, and racked off after being allowed to settle two or three days,  after which, if it can bo exposed to  cool weather and allowed to thoroughly chill, then stored in a cool  place, it will keep a long time without fermentation. When stored, cider is-bettor ranked up as diro-cted for  vinegar, and after it has lain . any  considerable length of time should bo  racked off when moved. Tho barrels  should bo kept full and bunged light  unless tliere is danger of "fermentation,  when vent  must  be given.  To be kept absolitoly sweet for a  long time, cider must go through a  pastottri'zing process or else somo  preservative must be used, Fnsteur-  irfng cider requires considerable apparatus, and the limits of this article will not allow of a description of  tho process.

This is notably impo'rtiant, during a season  when the corn crop is late and"thero  is danger of injury from frost. This  present season is no exception to tho  rule. In fuct, many farmers find  that thc corn is greener thnn it  should bo at this time of the year,  and that if early frosts come, seed  will bo in danger.  \VIiilo tho man who raises com  largely for seed cannot do much, but  depends upon tlie weather, the average farmer can secure enough for his  own uso without great difiiculty. 'As  soon as tho husks begin to dry up  he should go through the field and  seloct the best formed ears, planning  of courso, to get .thoso of good size.  While it may not bo the' best policy  to select the big ears the aim should  bo to got those which are above medium. Do not gather this corn, before it is out . of tho milk stage.  While seed mny grow if gathered thus  green it is-much better to* wait until  it is fully ripened. There is littlo  danger of frosts severe enough to  injure the germ insido of the husks  until quite late in tho season. Tho  moro seed that can be selected in  this way th'e botlor.

It i.s  woll, howevor, fo keep close watch  on the seed corn and should there bo  any "prospect of it becoming damp"  or injured during the winter, place  an oil stove or a small heater of  somo Kind in the room. A vory  small flame will do much to drive  out nil moisture nnd make il iin-ios-  siblo for freezing weather to do any  damage.  The next best method of drying  corn in a small way is to place a  box or a barrel in one end of tho wagon at husking lime, especially at  the very beginning of the husking operation, then if the huskcr will throw  into the barrel th'e best ears as 'ho  comos to theni, a fine lot of s<*ed will  bo available at the ond of the first  two or three weeks.  Thi.s, of r.ourse, should bo resorted  to at unloading time and only thc  best ears retained. These cars!  sliould bo ihen placed on racks or  on floors and should be dried as noted above. Tlio selecting of seed corn  by this method will be quite satisfactory, but of course, there is little  more danger of it being injured by  fro-Hl than if tho farmer . goes  through tho field the corn is ripo  enough for h-uskin^  AUTUMN TfTK TIM'S.

The desire of his eyes had been  snatched from him, and the joy of  his youth and0'th'e hope of his ago  quenched. The heavens were black  above him, an'd the earth below bleak  md barren tho wealth that would havo  made his wedded happiness possible  was useless now; nil his possessions  wore but dust; that is brushed^ nwny  by. n passing wind. ��������� His life lay  blasted behind him and all his future  stretched in blank desolation before  him. So Claudo, Medway mourned in  . tho . bitterness of a bcreaval still  fresh and acute.  It was. his own doing;'he could not  complain of the sternness of heavenly  decrees or accuse any blind Fate of  cruolty; with his own band"! he had  withered and destroyed a life dearer  than his own, and murdered his  young happiness. lt was as if,- a  consecrated chalico bearing celestial  wine having been offered him, he had  , - taken it for an ordinary tap-room  tankard, and, before he could do-  grade il to common uses, it had been  .snatched from his 'sacrilegious hand,  leaving him to burn with unquenchable  thirst.  On hearing of Jessie's disappearance he had caused inquiries to ne  made through his father, to whom  the handkerchief story had been coin-  'mumicate*] in confidence by Mr: Plummer, and had at last accepted the  theoi-y of death in the river, whether  by accident or design���������by design, he  too surely feared. If Jessie's passion and flight into thc storm had  touched ., his , conscience: nnd -heart,  the sharp stroke of bereaval had done  more. A sorrow at once so irretrievable and so entwined with all  thc finest fibres of human nature,  touches, tlie spiritual part of man  into Keenly thrilling nnd active life;  it refines, softens, purifies like nothing else.  What he had  seen  in  Jessie's   face  outlined    upon thc    lurid   sky,     had  _  swept 'away the intricate   mazes     of  sophistry  with  which  he  had  sought  to deceive her and  himself.      All  lay  then  in  its na">cd hidcousness  beforo  him;     he  saw   himself     the unmanly  persecutor, ofjan>-innocent, high-minded girl,  whose youth and dofcnceless-  ness specially appealed to his chivalry,      lie saw  the true nature of   the  , -   unequal  duel,   in  which  he  hnd   used  weapons    so   deadly ���������and   so. unfair  'against  one   whose  only  armor    was  innocence, an armor so easily pierced  '  unless-braced    by strength of ch'arac-  .tc'r and    principle;  and  know himself  utterly defeated. _,.    ���������  "Woo    to   tho    weak".   Let   women  take  caro  of    themselves," "was    his  axiom  in  April,   but    not now.      He  knew that Jessie had shown heroism  beyond that  of  the deadly,  deathless  " rido  at     Balaclava,, "which  had   "so  l.'i s.v*leeply impressed her imagination and  L C*o strongly    kindled her enthusiasm.  Ho remembered    his own proud   consciousness,  while he rode down   that  awful valley in the tempest of death,  thnt tho noblest chord in his   nature  was vibrating at last;  his  not ignoble sclf-reverance���������springing from the]  thought     that    hc and' his comrades  could  die  for  a word's  sake.  Sometimes he had  thought that  it  ���������     would bo possiblo to live up to   the  _,   Balaclava level;  when Jcssio left him  that  day ho  was  sure  of  it.      What  had pierced his conscience most deeply was'the brutality of his assertion  that    her   reputation     was    already  gone.      Love and    grief now   showed  him  after  Jessie's  flight  wiiat  terrible  meaning   thc  inexperienced    girl,  so  ignorant of the  world's evil,     so  scnoitive to feelings  of honor,  might  attach to these cruel  words. "In   ono  so' ���������sensitive  they    might  work  des-  .Pair, .-and  despair .in    one so     young  "and   friendless,     of,.'  mental." poise so  nice,   turns  to     madness���������and   then���������  He saw it "all; the rush of agony during the., lonely field  walk; thqsudden  1 loss_of_montul _bnlnncc_in-'thel_ fever  of. suffering, the temptation of the  swift flowing river, where thc tide  was coining up and thc channel was  deep. A plunge in thc g-recn water,  a loss of sunshine reflected froni the  golden  hair above,  a    total loss     of  sunshine to the blue eyes darkened  below; then silence; tho broken ripple  circling quietly buck to its even flow,  and the robin piping his autumn  song in the oak-grove on tho bank.  Or it might havo boon an accident,  a slip of tho light foot on the timber's green and slipii-ery edge, as sho  stood to watch the tide running up.  But it was most improbnblo that  she would have walked to the edge  df the timber bank; there was no  motive for doing so, To know that  it was on accident seemed the only  thing that could ever bring him  peace1 o-f mind now.  Philip had left him for .more'-'- than  an hour, thc . interrupted breakfast  lay untouched on the table, when ho  roused himself from that unending  circle of agonizing thought which  sometimes oversets the stronges-t  minds,, rose, took a turn in:,the. room  and looko-1 out on the sunny park,  whence the white rime was now  melted. Then his eyes fell on some  daily papers, h'e unfolded one, and  was about to try and divert the current of gloomy thought when his attention was caught -by a once familiar but long-forgotten name���������Fanny  Wordnutt,  aged twenty-six.  What is tho good ot reading those  brief, pitiful paragraphs that daily  appear under thc heading of inquests  on our cosey breakfast tables ? Sensible people who value their cheerfulness, pass on to the record of gayer  or larger 'doings, of Parliamentary  squabbles at home and political intrigues across thc Channel, of theatres nnd concerts, of Lord and L*->:ly  Roseleaf's exit from town nnd thc  arrival of the Duke of Bumkum nt  Flummery Castle, of thc progress of  Lord Chicory's gout and th'e successful courtship of Miss Angela Billing  by tho Hon. Squander Cashless. But  the name of this poor Fanny, whoso  bnef life had contained no such  pleasant doings as befall thc rich  and great, together with th'e name  of a certain cavalry depot, rivetted  his attention and caused thc hair to  rise upon his flesh as he read the  every .day  tale of misery.  Poor Fanny, only twenty-six and  too truly described- as, unfortunate,  had sought the piteous refuge of the  river from a World in which she was  not allowed the , chance of walking  uprightly, having oivcc,gono wrong.  But first sho had written a letter,  explaining why.  "Dear Mother," the letter ran, "I  could not bear it no-more, :thinking  it better for all I should go. Please  forgive me that havo been .a, trouble  and whit will trouble no one no  more, lt was trouble did it. After  that -young oflicer went I had no  heart for nothing; I couldn't look up  to myself. Theie was no hope. ,1  first took a glass,to forget. I was  forced to bad company, others gave  mo th'o go by. It was only-in drink  I could forget, and you was forced to  turn mo aw-ay. Dear Mother, there  was no honest' work, and me afraid  to dio. But hell-can't be much worse  than this. When you get this you  won't have a child lo bring you disgrace. Please give my lovo to all  that was ever kind to your poor  wicked Fanny.      God forgive him."  Wicked indeed was this frail, despairing Fanny, nil sound moralists  will justly say. Had sho been made  of sterner stuff, with a heart less  trustful and' loving, with a keener  eyo for hcr own interests, 'this poor  little tragedy had never been enacted.  Or with firmer faith and a feeling of  Heaven's innite pity, she might, have  faced man's scorn and not died of it.  .With all the-springs of earthly joy  dried for her, . she might havo sat  contrite in the dust7 doing good  works all the days'of hcr life, a life  which at eighteen seems, an ..eternity  of misery to tho hcarl-stncken. But  all -girls of eighteen are not saints  or uscetics; young blood _ is . warm,,"  tho youth hungry for happiness.  Perhaps Claudo"Medway was -not"a  sound moralist, for it seemed to: him  thnt the young officer who "went"  was the.most to blame in the matter  as ho perused this poor sinner's apology for her    life,  with  a  throbbing  brain and heart. It was nearly nine  years ago since the hussar oflicors  used to call Fanny "tho pretty Puritan," and lounge away many idle  hours in the confectioner's shop  where she served ices to those long-  limbed loungers, pennyworths of  sweets to little boys and girls, whoso  heads scarcely reached the counter,  buns to pinched spinsters, and great  plum cakes to severe matrons, all  with the samo engaging smile and  cheerful alacrity. She used to sing  in the church choir of Sundays and  leach in the Sandny-school. And  though she was inclined to be smart  in dress, tho greater part of h'or waga  went to tho family exchequer, and she  was a comfort to her purents.  Then on summer evenings, when the  bells were ringing, she use'd to stroll  through pleasant field-paths outsido  tho town, and one .of those hussars,  a light-hearted cornet, thinking no  harm and nt his wit's end for some  fresh diversion, joined in those  healthful walks nnd the end was sorrow for one of them.  Nothing could niter what had happened and cause Fanny's miserable  lifo to be unlived. That young cornet might repent, might have repent-  O'd long since; he might be admitted  to tho companionship of saints in  everlasting bliss, but even there surely ' he could not be happy remembering to what a fate he had sent Fanny. Claude Medway had not attained , to that wide hope of everlasting  morcy according to which the penitent's Heaven may consist in being  allowed to undo the ill wrought on  earth. He could only feel the black,  blank misery of having driven a fellow-creature to"a despair which led  to. worse than death, to one depth ot  degradation after another until "Hell  cannot be much worse than this."  To all lighted-hearted triflers, ono  day in some world, as to Claude  Medway in this, a voice of thunder  will surely sny, "Thy brother's or  thy sister's blood "crieth from the  ground."  He could sco the pretty Puritan  with rose-red mouth and clear guileless eyes, serving thc sweets and  singing in tlie choir, hear her joyous  laugh and innocent prattle as she  walked in the iieelds, a sweet picture. ' And ho could see a haggard  wild-eyed woman, stupefied by degradation, a source of wide-spreading  moral poison, mad with drink and  misery, flying from self and memory j  to tho spectre-haunted silence of  death���������a  ghastly  spectacle.  servant,     and    really   to   help    him  watch Claudo Modway's movements.  About a week after their encounter,  Claude Medway went to Cleeve, dogged  by Philip's  spy.  On thc following afternoon, about  thc gray dusk of a gray day, Philip  was walking in Hyde Park, when the  sound of his own name, issuing from  thc gloom beneath some trees near,  reached his car.  "Then I tell Philip Randal," a  man's voico said in harsh, threatening tones.  "Nonsence," Claudo Medwny's  voico replied. "Luckily he is out of  your reacli."  "He is in England. He was at  Marwell a fortnight ago. I can easily lay my hands on him if I try."  "lt will'be the worse for you if  you do, because in that case you will  never get ono farthing more from me  or my father, and ho has but his pay  for you  to  prey upon -" ���������  "Givo mo fifty down and I'll ho  quiet for the sake of tho family, for  tho fine old Medway. name," said tho  other, sneoringly. And Philip lost  the reply, for tlioy were moving on,  and their footsteps now fell upon  gravel and now : they, were in the  open road so that ho could not bo  near    them     without    himself being.

Such as Jessie!���������  "His     daughter     with   his  mother's  eyes."  Until Jessie had taught Him a'new  reverence for woman, he had not  felt th'e depth of this degradation.  What might actually be Jessie's  fate now, .if, as'Philip supposed, sho  was alone and homeless in London?  He "would have given his life' many  times over to know that she was indeed safe in thc river Lynn, even if  driven thero" by. despair of his causing.  Such thoughts dry up tho very  fountains of youth and scorch the  brain into soreness; he dared not  hnrbor: them; '   "They make a goblin of tho sun;"  but left the house, peeking by violent  exercise to get rid of thcm, for a  time.  Thcs ho "decided on seeing Sally  Samson and "testing the story- she  had told Philip. But he must not do  this openly now. *.  In the meantime ho and Philip were  liko duellists, each watching- -ai|d  waiting for the other to approach.  Claudo thought that the, threatened  legal, proceedings must fail for want  of money. Philip consulted lawyers  with the reult of getting his brain  completely bewildered by legal subtleties and hair-splittings. If he had  to -pay costs (which he considered  improbable) ho decided to sell his  commission and realize his little fortune. :    It was a combat n outrance.  When he left Claude Medway he-was  more firmly convinced than ever that  he had th'o "key to this distressing  mystery. Claude's cxtrcmo forbearance seemed to bear witness against  him; his letting him call him a liar  and otherwise insult hiin, seemed to  bear witness against him. The  "mean hound" hc culled in his indignation.  Walking moodily along that day  after an interview with a lawyer to  whom he had been recommended, hc  met a melancholy procession of sandwich men trailing aimlessly along  with" pinched faces and haggard looks  and in dnojof these ragged creatures  lie recognized a discharged soldier  nnd old comrade with whom he had  served in the Crimea. Hailing this  unlucky fellow, he gave him a shilling and his address, and bade him  |-a-������me-*ind-talk-over old times. Then,  finding him open to a better'-'' employment, and knowing thnt his wits  were keen and that hc could keep  sober for' some time for a purpose,  engaged- him,,   nominally as his  seen.  Somo further altercation followed,  arid then Claude put something into  the hand of the man���������who proved to  be the shabby fellow Philip had seen  waiting in the hall, and shook himself free of him.  Philip followed the shabby man into an omnibus, in .which he contrived to sit opposite him with his own  faco in shadow, so that hc could  watch him in the 'dim light of the  quaking oil lamp as they clattered,  over the pavement. Th'e man dozed'a  little, with ::his chin on liis breast  nnd his hands resting clasped tightly  on the stick h"e hold between his  kneos. Presently he roused himself  with a low sound, half moan, half  grunt, looked uneasily round like  somo startled wild animal,:and;Philip  saw that his eyes glittered feverishly  from deep-sunken sockets, and that  his worn and wasted face was of a  peculiar yellowish hue.r Having  glanced round at the passengers, tho  haunted look left him, and he took  from his pocket some kind of sweetmeat or' drug from which hc cut  pieces and ate and dozed again. This  was repeated several times, and each  time his hand became less tremulous,  his dozing less heavy, and his eyes  less keen. He got out in Oxford  Street; followed at a distance - by  I'hilip, and ate some more of, the  sweetmeat. Then he sauntered slowly along, often "stopping to look vacantly for some minutes at the moving "stream of vehicles and passengers  passing and repassing, jostling and  hurrying, in the gas-light. Tlie-haunted look recurred no more now, the  eyes wero quiet and hazy, thc man's  air was that of a half-conscious  'dreamer, there was a pleasant languor  in  h'is movements.  He turned "the first corner he reached in the' same aimless," sauntering  way, with many a pause, as if in reverie; though surely, Philip thought,  Oxford and the adjoining streets .woro  strange places' to dream in., But the  opium-eater saw instead of London  streets by gaslight, a scries of magnificent pageants streaming by in  ever-changing brilliance, in 'weird yet  tranquil     splendor. He     saw  the  Greok charioteer with wind-blown  hair and tense muscles, standing with  a backward poise in his light car,  and deftly guiding his flying coursers,  anon giving a swift glance behind to  seo how far his rivals had gained on  him in oue louder thunder of their  course. Now it was a Roman  triumph glittering with golden spoil,  now advancing surge of victorious  battle, now a succession of dancing  nymphs and satyrs, a whirl of flying  Naiads, now a fairy pageant, a radiant masque, a tournament, a battle  of Titans," a rout of Centaurs nnd  Lnpithae, a procession of lovely  laughing, lute players, heaven knows  what of fantastic spectacles, glowing  colors, and beautiful forms 'dcvclo**-  ed on the foundation of a moving  London/crowd.  'Street after street1 was"passed in  this manner; I'hilip began to wonder  if "the battered, shabby, object of his  clmse-wcrc a man or demon, if,perchance*, ho had lighted on tho Wandering Jew, or some spirit compelled to  rc\isit his old haunts. The thin,  bearded figure stopped at last after a  couple of hours' wandering before a  house -in���������a -modern tely-^quict��������� st root,  rang the bell and went in without  parley when thc door opened.  Philip soon followed, observed tho  number on tlie fan-light, and rang  the  bell- himself.  "Ts Mr. Johnson at home?" ho  asked thc maid who answered tho  door.  ".Some mistake. No Mr. Johnson  here,"' she replied.  "No? But surely that wns "Mr  Johnson who went in a.minute ago?  An elderly man, thin and sickly-  looking?"  "Why, you mean one of the lodgers,  Mr. Ashwin. 1 ju**t lot him in.''  " "I nm afraid I have mado" a mistake, I could have sworn it was Mr.  Johnson." he returned, carefully describing him again and slipping a  piece of silver in her hnnd. "Tho  number I .thought was 55, and tho  landlady, a Mrs.���������well, I forgot hcr  name."        . ���������    ,  "This is Mrs. -Sinithson's, sir,- and  she's only three sets, Mr. Ashwinj  tho first-floor back, and Mr. Cromer,  second-floor, back. No Mr. Johnson  'Twas the first-floor front just slopped  in."  "A 'commercial  traveller?"  "No; he lives independent. Sleeps  all day, and is out all night sometimes.    Drinky.    Hus   horrors."  That was all Philip could learn of  Ibis gentleman, und hc turned away  content with his information for tho  present.  (To bo Continued.)  SELECTING PIGS.  ���������In selecting breeding st'oaV, care  must bo taken that the animals  chosen conform ns nearly as possiblo  to the types of .;" their respective  breeds.' ;Lcaving, however, the fine  points of breed type to the fancies  of different breeders, several' other  things of prime importance should  be;    noticed.       One  of  . these, is  sex  The dairy industry is an extremely flouri.'-hing condition in Holland. In 1899 -this country possessed '1,6.70,000 horned cattle, 960,-  000 of which were milch cows valued   at   ?!50,250,000.  Dutch cows produce an "Unusually  large.amount of milk. The returns  ���������were formerly given ns 3,(398 quarts  of milk per cow, with nn average  content of .'5 per cent, of fatty mattci-, or 321 pounds of butter per  year; but tlicsc figures are too low,  conservative ostimjates now put the  yield  at 4,227  quarts.  In 1S99, 123,459.000 pounds of  butter were produced in Holland, of  which 09,440,000 pounds were made  by the peasants and 5't,013.000 in  factories.     The  exports  of  this  pro  type.    Tho boar should be 'masculine  in appearance,  with head inclined to !d���������"c"t'amo���������-.{������������������" to 44,097,000 pounds.  coarseness,,   neck full,  antl  forequar  JonCKt-C'Tiiis talk about Friday  being unlucky is all nonsense. My  wife accepted me on Friday." Smith  ���������"But Kow about your wife?" ' ,  tors a'trifle heavier than hind quarters. The sow, on the other hand,  should;';, be entirely feminine in appearance, (having none of the coarseness around tho head and neck that  is shown in the boar. Tier hindquarters, especially, fihould be broad and  full, and her back long and roomy,  to give plenty of room for the development of a large litter. However, one must not think from this  that lie should*' select" coarso, raw-  boned boars nor weak, delicate sows.  In this, common sense .ind experience must be largely relied upon.  In general form, both the boar and  the sow should bo deep, broad, long  nnd well filled out in the hams. Thc  legs are best when of medium length,  having bone of good quality, indicated by thc lino texture of thc stkin  and hair, and a trim general appearance. With such legs there is no  danger of the animal bi'oaking down  in the pasterns.  Having selected our breeding stock,  tho difficult "task has just begun. The  brood sows demand vcry careful attention. Beforo brooding them, t-hey  should be in a vigorous, healthy condition, not overfat, yet by no means  poor. 'After breeding, they should be  lcept in the same hearty condition by  means of feeds that are nutritious  but, not concentrated. Heavy feeding studs may be mixed* with bran,  fed with roots,' or with chaffed clover of alfalfa hay, softened .with water, which latter feed -serves admirably-for this purpose. ' Food rich in  caibohydrates, as corn, should be  given sparingly and a largo part of  the ration may bc profitably, made  up of feed rich in protein. This serves  to keep thc sows in good firm flesh'  and supplies plenty of nourishment  for  THK  DT-.VI'3LOPING  PIGS.  Another vcry important factor is  exercise This is necessary, ns the  most careful feeding will not bring  tho sows up to farrowing time in  good condition without it. Enough  exeicise is usually obtained in moderate weather if the sows are allowed thc rim of a good-si/.od field. In  cold weather, otiier methods must bo  resorted to. A good one is to scatter some feed, f*uch as oafs, thinly  over- the feeding floor, thus forcing  thu animals to move around considerably to get it. If no other method  is practised, the sows should be  driven about lor a short timo each  day. ...  Having given theSn proper caro, thc  sows will come up to farrowing time  in good . condition -and will raiso  large, healthy litters.- ��������� For a few  days just preceding farrowing, food  having . a loosening elTect on the  l.owels is good. Roots, sloppy .bran-  feeds,  oil  meul,  etc.,  all  answer this  purpose Evurytliing_having_n_co.**^.  tivo elTect should be carefully avoided. If these piecnutions are taken  there will be little or no difliculty  at farrowing time. -Pigs that, com.'  weak or dead arc usually :a' reflection  upon tho management of tho  brooder.  Aftor the pigs arc ; born, the sow  should bo piit on nh'ort rations fora  few days and then the feed gradually increased until she i.s given all  that she will eat. It is a well-known  fact-111111' pigs gain faster ��������� and more  economically when young tliun at  nny other ago. ho tliey should be  kept growing steadily at the rate of  at least one pound a day. At. thi.s  period theA sow may be fed almost  anything at hand, avoiding ��������� too  much com and utilizing oil skim-  milk, du'ry by-products, etc.  When tho pigs aro about two weeks  old thoy will learn to drirtk a little  milk from .the trough, with their mothers. Thoy should then be given  same milk in a separate trough,  placed in a pen accessible to tho pigs  only. When one pig Has learned to  drink, the others soon lenm from  him. Tliey may nlso be given some  grain, soaked in milk and scattered  ovor tlieir leeding floor, care being  taken that no more bo fed than they  will clean up at one time. This  Im'ethod, if followed, will cause, tho  pigs io gain \ory rapidly nnd will  so gradually accustom thcm to all  kinds of feed that, when the time  for weaning comes, no perceptible  sluclc will tako place in their rato.of  gain, ami the hog-raising business  will prove both profitable and pleasant.  Binks--Fnct is, old" chap, T find  that drink 'interferes with my worfk,  so I have decided to knock off work.  HOLLAND'S DAIRY INDUSTRY.  Th'e following article ' concerning  the dairy industry in' Holland is  from the Bulletin des Holies [(Paris):  But in spite of the. largo amount of  butter, produced the uso of margarine is vory general, and the exports  bf this product arc even larger than  that of butter. Many jieople think  the margarine industry.a far greater, importance than better making.  There arc 31 margarine factories in  Holland, many of which arc most admirably equipped.  "Thero is no great difference between thc dairies of Holland and  t'hose of Germany and-Dciun-ai-J-. Centrifugal machines nre very generally  usod. Thc largest ostabHisSiments  are found in the province of Fries-  land, manv of them handling daily  from 21,000 to 32,000 quarts of  millc.  '''Themanufacture of cheese is more  important in Holland than butter  making. In 1899, 105,822,000  pounds of rich cheese wore made and  46,502,000 pounds of single cheese,  or cheese marie from skim snilk, giving a total 'of 15-1,324,000 pounds of  cheese. The larger part of this product is mode by tho peasants, and  the rich cheese made by them is of  a "better quality and'brings higher  prices than that made in the factories, ilxifit the opposite is true in regard to the cheeso made from tho  skim milk.  "The principal cheeses made in  Holland ami thc only ones exported are the l*"<iara and Cou-da cheeses,  but for local con-sumption tliose made  with cloves and caraway seed aro  very popular."  POULTRY HINTS.  Exercise  is  the  best  tonic.  Never feed sour or tainted food.  Clean! incs's i.s next to godliness.  High perches cause bumble  feet.  'Keep   t'ne  di inking  fountain   clean.

"I wish I were yon star," he said  drenm'ly.  "So do I,'*' she returned promptly,  heroically swallowing a yawn.  "And why, dear one," he ns-J'-ed  impulsively. "Why do you wish I  were yon brilliant orb?"  "necajise." she replied, in cold,  matter-of-fact tones, "because yon  brilliant orb is just���������'11,760,971 miles  nway."  And he faded silently out like a  mist  before  a  summer sun.  "Arid do you think." he affecd.  "that men progress after death?"

Tne Japanese are Britain's allies.-  They arc also one of the best fights  ing breeds in the whole universe, but  from what I saw of them I think  that they aro going to startle tho  world as it has not been startled  sinco Mahomet preached his gospel  of the sword, and built a world-de-.  tying power out of a number of reck-*  loss nomadic bands, writes A.

Then thc Mikado came,  and in place of a priest ho gavo  them a rifle; in place of a temple he  gave th'cm a tent.

AWAKENING OF THE EAST.  Once let that spirit awako in thai  East���������and I believe from what I saw,  that it is awakening���������and wc shall  see an army officered by Japanese  that will shake other powers beside,  Russia yto their very foundations.*  To-day British ships carry nearly  ninety per cent, of tie trade of tlie  cast. ; In ten years time, a great military nnd naval check comes, ninety  per cent, of that trade will be carried in Japanese ships, and, what is  more: ninety per cent, of the manufactures will be turne. out from Japanese and Chinese factories.- -Fur,-  behind the Religion of thc Rifle,  which is the only religion in Japan  to-day worth noticing, stands ' the  god of commerce, whom this nation  of materialists  worship.  Seven days a week and every week,  they work and" drill. They have no  Sabbath day, no day of rest. Their,  idea of a living God is a great Mikado, whose power shall shake tha  nations. They are out of touch with  us as a people in almost every con*-  ceivable way. It was our wealth,  and our wealth alone, that mado  them eager for an alliance with us.  They want British money to aid  them when th'e pinch comes, and they  do not want anything else. They despise our religious professions because they say that we and all other  professedly Christian peoples care  for nothing but power. They point  to our navy and nsk, if we believe  in Christianity. Why "do we sweep  thc seas with ships of war? They-  point to the legions of Germany and  France, and enquire why those nations stand eternally in arms if they)  are real  Christians.  RIFLES. NOT BIBLES.  To the Japanese Christianity is a  shadow, not a substance; dead ashes,  not a living lire. They have not '  taken and they will not take tho  Bible of the civilisned world; but they,  have taken the rifle, and when such  a people preach the gospel of tlie  gun they arc going to make a deep,  mark in, the world's history.  Th.'.r verj' bravery, their physical strength, their indomitable energy, ' their tireless industry, their,  htrict temperance in alcoholic liquors  their unswerving thrift���������all thesa -  things help to make them doubly,  dangerous, because . they have no -  moral check, A nation so full o*  strenuous vitality, if utterly.
