EX-GOVERNOR  MACKINTOSH  The Conservative Candidate for  Kooteday,    Gives    Emphatic  Denial to Reports  Circulated  Concerning: Him.  Ex-Governor Mackintosh has re-  turncd from a trip through the Trout  Lake district and will go there again  shortly. For the past two days he  has been visiting the electors of Revelstoke and met with a most encouraging reception.  To a Hiirald representative he expressed regret that a statement had  been circulated with a view ;.to  influencing certain interests against  him, to the effect that he had  prompted the great strike at Rossland  sonic three years ago. Nothing could  be more false, nothing more unjust.  He had espoused the cause of the men  because no one else seemed willing to  fairly represent their case in England.,  lie was not'in Rossland when the  strike took .place, but went tliere  immediately after, having received a  cable from London requesting him to  report upon the whole question. He  did so and subsequently urged Mr.  Frechville, who came out as was  represented, to settle the difficulty,  but, in reality, made things worse, for  he even declined to discuss the issue,  although making an appointment to  receive a deputation, and subsequently  treating rall concerned with scant  courtesy.  ' '"Under similar circumstances" Mr.  Mackintosh said: "I would do precisely  what I did then. Certainly my action  I was not - influenced by political  motives. I believe in the maxim ' live  and let live.' and any individual or  individuals in a community having a  grievance to redress will, I. hope,  always iind a friend and advocate ia  me. As to politics���������I am a Conservative as you know���������but I sbali be for  British Columbia before party, nor  will I support any government that  refuses to: protect and foster- the  lumber industries of British Columbia;  that ignores the iron and steel industries for which there is a great opening in East Kootenay, or is indifferent  to British Columbia's pica for better  terms. That is iny platform, whether  Sir WilfridLaurier or Mr. Borden is  in power. I am a supporter of Mr.  Borden in his policy of the people  running their own railway."  BLAIR WITH  THE TORIES  Resigns Chairmanship of Railway commission���������Will Tour  the couutry in Opposition to  Government Railway Policy.  AN IMPORTANT  ANNOUNCEMENT  By Mr. Borden, Liberal-Conservative Leader Regarding;  Railway Construction���������Better  Terms for British Columbia.  1   ***** *****  ***** ***** ***** mmFm  ***** *****  *'  X     Jr^Tr^Ii   1 J,���������J,* *X,* *3i* *  Ottawa, Oct. -18.���������Mr. A. G. Blair  telegrapher Sir Wilfrid Laurier tonight that! he hud resigned from his  position-as Chairman of the Railway  Commission. Hoi at tho same time  forwarded his resignation to the Gov-  ernor-Genei"������l-in-Coimcil. This was  done inimediately/'after'tho meeting of  the Board .'today, when Mr. Blair announced his intention of resigning his  fiosition. He said that:it would bc the  ast- session of the Commission at  which he would occupy the position of  Chairman ..'or be", a member bf the  Board. ,He expressed regret at purt-  ing with'his colleagues.  It will be remembered that Mr.  Blair resigned the portfolio of Minister  of Railways' in the'Laurier Government, and was ��������������������������� afterwards given the  position of Chairman of thc Railway  Commission;  Mr. Blair says he is going to take a  more profitable position, but refuses  to say what it ii; at any rate he does  not so back to political life.  It is said, however,-that Mr. Blair's  intention is to address a series of  meetings ih opposition to the Government's policy, which he considers  un absolute peril and menace" to the  prosperity of the country. After this  he will, with his son, enter upon the  practice of the law in Monti'eal.  LOOKING FOR  CASH IN U. S.  Wrestling Match,  There was a large gathering at the  Opera House last night to .^s'ee. the  wrestling match between Chris Person  of Tacoma, Wash., champion of California and J. D.McLennan, of.;' Revelstoke, amateur champion of British  Columbia. According to the terms of  the match, Person undertook to throw  McLennan three times in one hour or  forfeit $50, Police Gazette rules to  govern.  The curtain rose sharp at 9 o'clock,  when Mr. R. Gordon in a few timely  remarks.-. introduced the combatants  and announced the conditions, of the  match. Mr. Joe McCrum, of Kamloops, made an efficient and impartial  referee. Harry McCoy acted as second  for Person, and T. J. Wadman , performed a similar office for McLennan.  Dr. Sutherland was chosen time  keeper s_-=^ -===^==^  When the men entered the ring,  each was given a splendid reception-  Mr. McLennan of course being a local  mnn was more popular with the large  audience, but the gentlemanly bearing of his opponent also drew forth  the admiration of the spectators,  During the early part of the match  McLennan acted entirely on the defensive nnd time and time again broke  away from his opponent when it  looked as though he would be forced  to go to the mat, After struggling  for 30 minutes Person secured an inside  ciotcli and half nelson hold and  succeeded in obtaining the flrst fall.  After a few mlnntea rest the combatants went' at it again and as pretty  an exhibition of the grand old art of  wsestling as could be wished for  followed. This time McLennan., acted  a little on the aggressive and on several occasions it looked as though he  would succeed in obtaining a fall out  of hts opponent, but Person cleverly  eluded him. On tho other hand try  as he might Person could not get a  cinch on McLennan and time was  called amid great cheering for the  local champion.. Person, although a  stranger here, received a good share  of applause, and while he certainly  showed himself to be a first-class  wrestler, McLennan also demonstrated  his ability at the game, The match  throughout was conducted }n ft. very  manly spirit, and at the conclusion  each man bad a greater respect for  his opponent.- The large audience,  among whom we were pleased to  notico a number of ladies, were well  satisfied with the exhibition and  shewed their appreciation by frequent  applause. Person leaves to-night for  the coast where he, has a match  arranged for the 23th. It is quite  possible he may return here later,  when another match may be arranged  between he and Mr. McLennan.  Should he do so we can guarantee him  a good reception as by his gentlemanly manner throughout the contest he  made quite a few friends in the city.  Liberals Seek Campaign Funds  From Democratic Candidate  to Promote Government Interests^  -      '  New York, Oct 16.���������An envoy of  the 'Liberal Government 'Of the 'Do-  minion of! Canada in search^of cam-  Saign-fundsriu:th������-Utfited.States,. ;lefl-.  few York .this moFning^<iccompany-������  irig William F. Sheehan, chairmivn'-of-  the"Democratic State committee; Their  .destination was Esoupus, New York.  They arrived there and' entered into  consultation with Judge Pankeiv the  democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States.  It is understood that the reciprocity  campaign, now being engineered by  capitalists in New England, was discussed ' in its various phases. The  representatives of the Ottawa administration pointed out that in the event  of the return of the Conservatives to  power all idea of reciprocity, with the  United States must be. abandoned, as  the Conservatives were bound to the  policy of Chamberlain, in favor of the  British Empire, which they claim  would afford the best market for  Canada, wheat, cheese, eggs and farm  produce.  On the other hand, if the Liberal  administration was sustained a renewed impulse would be given reciprocity with the United States.  Having discussed these propositions  fully, the proposal -was held before  Judge Parker and Mr. Sheehan, that  tliey enlist financial aid for Ciinada.  The point raised by the Anioricans  was, that in the event of a Democratic  defeat, which was considered not improbable, the money would be wasted  jasjagainst this the further argument  was advaffcedVby'the-Canadians- that-  a victory for the Conservative party in,  Canada would put an end to all hopes  on the part of tho New England capitalists of obtaining the much desired  reciprocity.  After tho matter had been threshed  out in all its details, it is understood  that the Canadian envoy was informed  that no financial assistance would he  forthcoming from the other side of th*  line. I  The Oanadian who accompanied Mr.  Sheehan to Esopus is commissioned  to raise the campaign-fund for the  Laurier administration. It is stated  by several peoplo who met him- while  there that through liis instrumentality  $500,000 were procured in connection  with the Canadian Atlantic deal by  which that road became the property  of the Grand Trunk Railway.  In the event of a denial of the statements made herein by the Liberal  press in Canada, it is possible to publish this man's name and give the  details, the elforts he has made in Montreal and in other Canadian cities to  raise ��������� funds for the LiberalJ administration.

Hume & Co,  ' The most important announcement  that has been forthcoming during the.  present election campaign, and, so far  as the interests of the Province of  British Columbia are concerned,  the  most important for years,  has been  made by Mr..Borden, the leader of the  Liberal-Conservative party in Canada.  It is the nature of a despatch received  from  the   leader  to   Colonel  Prior,  through Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper.  In view of the statements assiduously  circulated locally among the electors,  Colonel   Prior   telegraphed    to    Sir  Charles to obtain an explicit statement  in regard  to   two matters���������the   construction of a trims-continental railway and. Better Terms   for British  Columbia���������and upon both points the  reply is definite and satisfactory.     In  a letter from Sir  Charles" to Colonel  Prior, he says that "it should be an  effective answer to all  who had any  doubts as to his policy with respect to  the  immediate  construction of    the  transcontinental   railway,   nnd    fail-  treatment of this Province with   respect to our financial relations  with  the Dominion.   It is quite clear that  the eastern, middle and western sections will, arid  should,   be   simultaneously dealt with."    The despatch is  as follows:���������  V Toronto, Ont., Oct., 10, 1004.  " Hon. Sir Chas. Hibbert Tupper.K.C.  '* President Conservative Association, ^Vancouver, B. C.  "In reply to your' enquiry permit  me to outline the salient features of  our transportation policy. We will  immediately undertake the. construction of a transcontinental railway "to  the Pacific as a government work. To  this end we -shall vitalize all the  powers of government and the .financial strength of the Dominion. For  obvious reasons the utmost expedition  will bo employed; iu the first place, to  satisfy without delay the need of our  Great West, in the second place to  curtail cost in the important, matter  of interest upon.outlay during construction. --To-tfJisiire early completion  "every section of the railway will'be  undertaken as rapidly as, with all ,the  resources of government, surveys can  be made'and contracts entered into.  Wherever it may be to -the public  interest we shall not hesitate to  exercise for the acquisition of existing  railways the same powers of compulsory purchase which are possessed  and exercised by railway corporations  for acquiring the property of individuals. We shall supplement our  railway policy by such improvement  of our canals and waterways, and our  harbors 'as will bring all up to the  highest standard of the day and to the  full needs of the country.  " We fully realise that the people,  confident of the future of this Dominion, do not fear any reasonable  expenditure of money, wisely made,  wliich may tend to the development  of our country and to tho greater  prosperity of its inhabitants. We  also propose to put an end to the  scandalous waste ancl extravagance  which arc incident to the present  administration of Government Railways, beliuvinjr, as we do, tbat their  honest management under a Commission would make' these railways at  least self-sustaining, and would afford  better accommodation to commerce,  and more equitable conditions in  every respect than now exist. Let me  also__say_ that I_Jiave_ given much  thought to the conditions iii British  Columbia, which, in your opinion, call  for special attentiou in considering  the Financial rolations betweon the  Dominion und that Province. You  claim not only that theso conditions  am exceptional and peculiar to the  situation and physical character of  your Province, but also that they are  permanent in their nature. In my  opinion they are such as to demand  immediate enquiry and investigation,  to the end that any injustice clearly  established may be immediately  relieved,  R. L. BORDEN.

Mukden, Oct. 18.���������The battle of  Shakhe River hus obviously resulted  in a Japanese viotory, and to-day's  despatches confirm the news of Saturday and Sunday that Kuropatkin's  defeat was crushing. His offensive  movement failed utterly. But it is  apparent that even in his retreat he is  battling stubbornly and (inflicting  severe losses on the Japanese, while  he himself is sustaining casualties  that are described as "appalling."  Latkr���������The Russian forces at 11  o'clock this morning penetrated the  Japanese centre and it is reported  captured 11 or 12 guns and ISO prisoners  east of the railway. At another point  during the day the Siberian regiments  took 24 Kims,  Tho Japanese after a terrifically  stubborn resistanco were compelled to  retire along thoir whole line, losing  .heavily. In one trench there were 600  corpses of the Japanese. In spite of  this the Japanese were undaunted.  They have brought.up siege guns and  have left no stone unturned to retain  the mastery of the situation. Every  step the Russians have pushed forward  to-day h^a boon in the face of a stubborn resistanoe that has cost them  very dear. i  FoLMMdmiS Men  HATS AND CAPS  Our Hats and Caps are like like the Japs���������    ty  ty  if  i'f  ty  On .Top���������we can supply you with all kinds.

Why Is the Heir Presumptive Called the  Prince   of  Wales ?  Wales was nominally a principality  of tlio kingdom when ISdwurd I., also  culled Edward tho Crusader, returned from tho Holy Land, and it had  its own lino of Princes and was  practically. Independent. Tho "Nor-  liuiii rulers of England hud several  times Invaded tho country, hut the  sturdy Welshmen had not boon subdued. Edward's chief ambition after  his experience- in foreign- wars was  thu subjugation of Wales und Scotland. Jn pursuing tliat ambition ho  begun  with Wulcs.  Llcycllyn, tho contemporary Princo,  had boon captive in his youth in tho  hands of Edward's fa thar, Henry III.  Later ho was a supporter, ot Simon  do Montfort, who was tho real ruler  of England for several years during  tho latter part of llonry's reign, and  was overthrown and slain by Edward  at thc battlo of Evesham. After tho  battle, Llewellyn promised fealty to  Henry, beforo Edward sot out on liis  crusade. Edward summoned him as  a vussul to his coronation in August, 1274, but ho refused to attend  because- not guaranteed safo' conduct.  Several other summonses wero treated in like manner, but,Edward, who  was crafty, instead of at' onco making war,  resorted to..strategy.-. ���������  Llewellyn was betrothed to Eloan-  orn, the young daughter of do Montfort, a first cousin of the King.  Elcaiiora's mother died on the Continent in 11275, and in the following  year sho sailed for Wales With her  brother Almoric. Edward intercepted  the vessel off tho Scilly Islands and  carried his two cousins to London.  Llewellyn was served witli another  summons, but ho again refused to  obey, though ho boldly demanded thc  rclcaso of  HIS PROMISED UlliDE.'. ''."  Edward then declared his lands forfeited and within a 3'oar' led an army  into Wales. Ho overran tlie country,  secured the support of Llewellyn's  brother Pavid, who had a grievance  about his patrimony, and stripped  Llewellyn of everything but his titlo  ancl the limited sovereignty of Snowr  den und thc lslo of Anglesey. Under  penalty of a greater tribute than hc  could hope to pay, Elcanora was  surrendered to him, and they woro  married before Edward and his  Court at Worcester in 1278.  Fivo years later, however, Llewellyn was again in revolt. 'Edward led  a large army into Wales, but was  not conspicuously successful until  Llewellyn was killed in a skirmish.  Hi.s heud was sent to Edward, who  placed it on tho walls of tho tower  of London, crowned with an ivy  wreath, in mockery of a prediction  of Merlin that when tho English  money should become circular, the  Princo of Wales.should bo crowned in  London.  Edward soon reduced the country  after Llewellyn's death, and he established his residence for a time ut  Caernarvon Castle to personally conduct the pacification of th'o country.  He hail his Qucon with him, tho heroic wpman who liad Saved his lifo  in Palestine, by sucking a-wound inflicted by thc poisoned dagger of an  assassin. At Caernarvon on April  25, 3 2S4, was horn his son and  heir, Edward of Caernarvon, eventually thc weak and contemptible Edward II. With a, view to knocking  tlio last prop from under liie founda-  tho King commanded that tho infant  Edward should have tho - titlo of  Princo of Wales. And so. after all,  was fulfilled tho prophecy of- Merlin,  thc seer.  OAN YOU KISS YOUR TOE?  LESS THAN ONE IN FOUR MEN  CAN DO THIS.

If .you Iio flat on your back nnd  bend your leg bade upon your body,  you will find you cannot possibly  straighten your knee. Tho reason of  this is that lho lower part of tho  leg is worked by tho samo muscles���������  namely, tho haiii-strings���������which control lho upper.

It is thc certainty, however, iliat if violence is  done one of t'hese men retribution is  swift that gives tliem the amazing  command of turbulent forces altogether out of proportion to their  ability to enforce the laws.

KOCH   ON TRANSMISSION  OP  CONSUMPTION.  Tho    Finding of    tho  Royal Commission Is Not Ultimate  Report.  The     Yorkshire,      England.     Post .  says :���������  Far from being convinced bj- tha  recent report of the Royal Commission on tuberculosis. Dr. Koch, in a  privatu letter to Dr. G. A. Heron,  ro-alfirms his belief with regard to  human and bovine tuberculosis. Dr.  Heron has obtained Dr. Koch's permission to send to tho Lancet tho  following authorized translation of a,  portion of lhe letter :  lt will interest you to hear that  tho experiments which wero mads at  my suggestion in tho Imperial Institute of Public Health concerning human and bovjno tuberculosis aru  practically complete, Mid quite bear  out my views. These experiments  wero carried out on such a numlier  of animals and with so mucli caro  that th'oy aio, I firmly believe, incontrovertible. Besides this, thceo  experiments wero made during my  absence, in Africa, and therefore wero  not influenced by mo. They provo  that bovine and human tuberculosis  ara dillcrcnt from one anoher. Cattlo  cannot be infected with bovine tuberculosis. This work will be published in detail in a few months.  RESULT OF EXPERIMENTS.  Dr. Heron points out that beforo  Dr. Koch first broached his theory���������  Congress on Tuberculosis ia 1901���������ha  submitted tlio experiments and evi-  denca on which it was based to a,  committee of acknowledged experts,  of whom tho lato Prof. Virchow waa  one. On tho other hand, says Dr.  Heron, there has as yet been no publication nor, so far as the public  know, any expert examination of tho  experimental evidence ou which the  Royal Commission bnse their dissent from Dr. Koch and their support of tha view almost universally  held bcroro the London Congress.'  Until such publication or examination takes place. Dr. Heron observes,  "thoso ablo to estimate tho worth oi  cvidonco got by experiment con form,  no opinion as to the valuo of tho  experiments on which our commissioners hnvs founded their views"���������  and "it is probable wc sliall, when  that time arrives, have additional  important evidence for our guidance  in coming to ,a definite conclusion"'  by tho detailed' publication of Dr.  KocK'a expcriineals as indicated ia  his letter.  NOT ULTIMATE REPORT.  It must bo remembered, that tho  Royal Commission is still sitting,,  and that the report already published is but an interim report. Its  publication was justified by the need  to give tho public at tiio earliest  possiblo moment somo guidance as  'to a question affecting largo public  interests, and when they wero onco  conceived of tho general trend" of tho  evidence this could bo given, even  though tho detailed report was then  far from ready. Whilst, therefore,  thero is little difficulty in showing  that an interim.'report is not a. final  report, and that specialists will require to await the latter before being convinced one way or another, it  should bo remembered that there is -  a considerable difference between tho  conduct of experiments by a singlo  person, and that by a Royal Commission.  VALUE OF JUDGMENT.  In the latter case the experiments  are capable of being automatically  checked by exports as they arc made,  so that the more interim report of  th'o Commission may be said, in a  sense, to take equal rank with Dr.  Koch's statement of his views, supported as he is by the endorsement  of his experiments by thc experts to  whom ho has submitted them. Tho  general public, at any rate, will lw  content, wo think, so far to accept  the Commissioners' recent report" as  to hold not only tliat the burden of  proof rests, as before, with Dr.  Koch, but ��������� that even if the promised publication of his experiments,  seems strongly to bear out his view,  it will bc necessary to await, and  to givo at least  equal care and con������  -sidcrniion-to���������tho -final-repor.t_of_th������   Boyal Commission of eminent physi.  cians over whom Sir Michael Foa<  tor presides.

Th'.-i was all that was  asked of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and it  was denied lo us. Mr. Ilorclen has  bad the case of the Province carefully  under consideration, and be is satisfied  that tliere is at least prima facie evidence to warrant a. thorough investigation. This is all that is required.  Wo know Ihat the case is a sound one  ancl will, upon a careful hearing, result  in a verdict foi- our rights.  matter what  promises are made.

Even though the Government  succeeded in securing a majority, tin  active, intelligent and sincere representative, working in Opposition,  vould   force   the   hands of those who  will give thc Province of British Columbia the benches incidental to construction within its own limits. The  road will be built at a minimum of  cost, there will be no construction  companies   lo   make a profit, and the  sixteen million   dollars in  the value of  Canadian   exports   ns  compared with  those   of   the   fiscal year ending 1903.  For the month of   July, 1001. tho first  month of   tbe fiscal  year ending June  .'Will,   1905,   there   was   a   decline   of  $2,193,111) in   the  value of   exports  as  compared with the same month of the  previous year.     The  figures  for August anel September have, not yet  boen  published  by the Government and are  not   likely   to   be until after the elections.     If   the  decrease shown in thu  month of   July   continues throughout  the   twelve   months   the   decrease in  exports   will   be   about thirty million  dollars,   making   a   decline   of about  forty-six   million dollars in two years.  Now if the Laurier Government are to  be  given credit   for   tbe  increase   of  exports   during   the   early   years   of  Liberal administration thoy must take  the blame for- tbe great decline during  the closing years of Liberal rule.

Suddenly Lho sound of  clattering hoofs and the startled  cries of some native attendants roused him from his reverie, and turning  he saw u runaway horse, ridden by a  lady, thundering along the road "toward him. The horse's mane ancl  tho iady's hair streamed on the wind  their furious speed, tho ridor sat  well and was pulling with all her  might. He liad but. time to recognize in the pale face.

Ada made  no objection to this arrangement,  allowed him to lift, her into thc saddle and adjust her habit, which he  did without looking up, and when  thi.s was done, and he was on tho  runaway, they started homeward at  a walk, in the last rays of the sinking sun.

He opened the letter,  foreboding no ovil and read :  "Hear Knndal : You will wonder  why in the world I am writing to  you, and when you hnvo discovered  tho reason pwhnps will wonder why  I did not writo before, unless, indeed, you rate mc a meddler in other  men's concerns."

How young,  how utterly alone and defenceless  ���������Jessie wus ! And he had not understood the hnll'-articulatc cry iu her  letters. He would read that last  letter offering release again.

There was no sleep for liim that  night, a great part of which he spent  in writing letters aiid -, arranging  papers'and. things-'of value.  Nor did Ada Maynard sleep much;  she was too happy, and the necessity  or living over tho day's events was  too imperious. Philip's faco bending  over her, tho gray oyos wide with  terror and alight with lovo. painted  itself perpetually on tlie dark curtain  of the'night..- She had seemed, to  pas's, with the shock of her fall, out  of the limi Ls of life into the .'illimitable' shadow of nothingness; whence  she v.ns called back by the stormy  expression of a strong, deep love, to  (ind herself cradled like an infant in  loving  arms,   enfolded   and   supported  away with tho others.  Antl yet when I'hilip had dismounted, given hi.s horse to a servant, and  walked to the encampment, speaking  to the wise and sometimes drowsy  lingerers in the shade as he passed  them, Miss Maynard chanced, singularly enough, to be just issuing from  tho tent with that calm nml unembarrassed air which is expected of  ladies on social occasions, and he of  course stopped  to speak  to  her.  "I was staying with mamma, but  sho is gone to sleep." she said, the  low liquid, tonus which so charmed  him; "the rest are exploring the  temple."  "Como with mo," he replied, "1  camo on the chance of seeing you  alone. Let US' find some placo where  we shall  not  be  interrupted."  The princess air became apparent,  in tlie glance Miss Maynard directed  upon Philip's haggard face and  down-bent, preoccupied eyes), when it  softened iuto a gentle smile and sho  reflected that a soldier���������a really  groat soldier���������as Captain Handnl wns  ono day to be, might be brusque  even ou such an occasion ns this.  "Havo you seen the waterfall?" sho  returned. "It would be pleasant  thero to-dny. I don'l. want to climb  over all the ruinn after yesterday's  bruising and jolting.

"The, "full wns unpleasant," sho  said, .with a demure air, reflecting  upon the agreeable manner in which  slie had been picked up, and thoy  walked silently on, skirting tho rocky  eminences on which the ancient temple was built, and passing beneath  some trees which grew down to tho  water's edge,, whore tlieir yacht lay  at anchor, passed and repassed by  native boats plying up and down the  broad river in the bright sunshine.

Tho cow for the dairyman, says F.  II. Scribnor, is tho ono that, cun  make tho most profit in milk, butter  or choose Tor tho feed consumed. Just  what, breed does not matter so much.  Jt depends entirely upon tho disposition, tasto and education of the  dairyman. There nre some people  who aro naturally fitted to take hold  of special purposo dairy cattlo and  mnku ii success with them, whilo  others require n fitting before they  will bo successful nnd perhaps never  wiil reach t'ho stato of perfection  (hat somo do.  Tho mnn who is progressive enough-  to got started along some dairy line  of breeding, has born or created in  him something of the next essential  element fo good dairying, and thnt  is good feeding. To bo a good breeder, then, is to bo a good feeder, and  on the other hand, to bo a feeder is  to bc a, good brooder. Tho two are  inseparable. Ono cannot exist to the  highest point of perfection without  the othor. The well bred animnl in  tho hands of a poor feeder is a far  worse proposition than tho poorly  brecl one In tho luurds of a good feeder. ,  It has been my ill fortune to do  some- judging of tho dairy breeds at  fairs, and i" have'judged them all  from the standpoint of tho dairyman.  Tho cow wins, that, in my;judgnioht  could bring in tho most money '."with"  the least cost.  It is often said that tho dairyman  does not need to look so closely aftor some of the fancy points of  breeding. This i.s true in a measure,  but I think to-day tho two classes,  tho brooder and I'lic dairyman, are  moro alike than they have evor boon  before.; the breeder giving in to some  of the more nori-ossential points and  tho dairyman who is looking out for  his best interests and for tho best  products from his cows has his eyo  out to a large number of the so-  culled fancy points, which, after all,  contribute something to tho makeup  of  A FIUST-CJ.ASS HAIRY COW.  In looking over many of thc reports  from men who have been through tho  country, r find that the dairyman  who has tried to improve tha stock  by introducing inlo his herd a thoroughbred sire of somo of the distinct  dairy breeds is the one who hns realized tho most profit every time. T  want dairymen to havo tho best cows  .and if T speak of the special purpose  dairy cow and do it forcibly it is  because.I believe the dairyman who  is doing anything short of this is not  living up to the full possibilities of  liis business. - ���������     " "" <  As I travel through tho country  and sec tho condition stock is in and  liow thoy nro cared for and tho foods  used, 1- nm inclined to think that  perhaps thero is a place for the common, or dual purpose cow, until such  a time a.s he shall turn ovor a .new  leaf, "Quit his meanness," as Sam  Jones says, and improve hi.s ways  of feeding and caring for his stock.  I have been in places in winter  where cows nro kept out of doors all  winter, with si run in the corn field,  a little poor hay and the straw  stack for shelter. Would tho strictly dairy cow bo nhlo to do business  under these conditions? She might  possibly survive, but tho idea of  profit would bo entirely out of tho  question, for it would tako at least  the best half of tho summer for her  to pull body and soul together, nnd  by that time who would have got all  our, of tlie notion of giving much  milk.

Bricks cannot be recommended unless  they are new and unbroken, and nre  laid in cement at least six inches  deep, and even then they nre liable  (o chip nnd crack, which is a groat  disadvantage as puddles are sure to  come. Stone llags are bad. as tho  manure sinks in between tho joints,  and makes the soil underneath impure and slinking, whilo wooden  floors, unless moveable are wholly to  bo condemned as dangerous and mischievous in thu Inst degree, concrete,  therefore,  should  bo used  WIIKIIKVEK FOSSI Bl .ll.  Tho preparation of such a floor i.s  well within the moans of every workman who earns enough to nlTord to  buy n pig, nnd it is not dilllcult tp  make. It should bo laid with n  gentle slopo toward lho front of tho  sty, und it is advisable l.o make thu  top of thu outer court lower than  the bottom of the slope in tho inner  court by nbout two inches. There  will thus be a small stop between tho  two courts, which will enable drain-  ago water to fall with a rush, and  run away moro rapidly. Tho object  of this is to secure dryness under  foot, for the pig, but it helps to keep  the floor from splitting or breaking  nwny. . Smull channels should also bo  mado in tho cement beforo it. is hardened, and. those should run-diagonally, in parrnllol lines, not cutting  across each other in the wny that, is  totmod cross-hatching. -These .diagonals 'or sloping linos should run  from right to left in the inner court.  JJeforo leaving this subject, it i.s ns  well to emphasize this point���������thc  slopo of tho floor should not bo so  gieat as to make it slippery, lest*  the pigs, on running out to tlieir  food, should hurt themselves, and.  for the same reason thc surface of  tho cement between the chunnvlsl  should bo left slightly rough.

MALAY  SUPERSTITION.  Believe   the   Crocodile  Is   a  Spirit  of the Water.  Along the Jralaeca Straits the Malays still believe that many beasts  arc sacred, and they aro particularly  impressed with the belief that tho  crocodile is a spirit of the water.  Therefore, the.'.e ugly monsters aro  not only extremely plentiful thero,  but they are so daring that thoy  make most of the waterways dangerous even  for persons  in  boats.  The ICnglishmeu who dwell in thai  part of the country declare that  hardly a week passes without the  killing' of a native hy a crocodile.  Tho brute swims slowly along behind  tho i'i<:lo, flimsy canoos and dugouts  used there and .suddenly (/witches his  terrible tail around in such a way  as to sweep the man out of tho boat  into  the  water.  lloto and there along the banks of  "tlie- black" "rivers wilFbo-"Kvoii-s!li'ijis"  of while cloth and baskets full of  fruit and rico, attached to trees or  suppling.? closo to the water. These  aro offering.'! made by tliu natives to  some crocodile that has his haimt  just under the. bank.  Now and thon, however, a crocodile becomes so ferocious and kills so  many persons that even thc superstitious natives feel it necessary to  dispatch liim. Then they u.se an ingenious and curious method. Tbey  mako a smnll bamboo raft about  three feet square, and to this they  attach a long ropo, mndo of loosoly-  pleutod cotton. At the end is a  huge hook, to tho shank of wliich  they  Ho -n  livo chicken.  They set the chicken on tho raft  and shove it out into tho stream.  Tho. poor fowl cackles and screams,  trying l.o rolcasu itself from tlio lino;  this' attracts the crocodile, .who  darts at it and gulps it down. Tho  next moment the raft bobs below tho  surface. .  Tho villagers follow."tho courso of  thc raft as it goes down stream, and  after ii day or two., when -tlie crocodile has'.-wearied himself -'thoroughly  by bis struggles, they puddle out and  haul it in. The- crocodile comes  ashore "without much fighting, and, is  killod   with  ease.  It is very rare for a .crocodile to  escape once he has swallowed tho  bait, for thc hook goes deep into his  stomach and the loosely-pleated ropo  is so Soft that the brute's tooth have  no effect on it.  Tlio reason many men get old is  because Uiey get lar.y. This i.s also  true of womon. Middle ago brings  clearer vision as to the folly of  iitroniiousnoss, and many of lho ambitions of younger days melt away  into thin nir. Thus ninny incentives  aro taken nwny from older men and  women for the activity of former,  years.  Tills, together with a natural want  of physical exuberance- which is pocu-  liur to younger people, simply causa  them to get lazy and then grow fat,  and thoir bones got brittle and the  vital organs suffer futty degeneration.

Tucks, plaits, shirrings,  and pulls nro introduced on waists,  skirts and sleeves in seeming confusion, nnd" very effective, too, are  those ornamental features in the soft,  pliable materials that aro ro much  used. Skirts are extremely varied  as to style, width and length*. Their  width grows, especially around tho  bottom. J-lttlu wraps made of overy  material that is modish are worn.  Th'o newest wrap is a novel affair  showing a semi-fitted capo forming  sleeves not unlike the kimono. Tho  lilouso continues to hold its own, in  ppito of changing styles and continual prophecies that its day is  waning. Tho dressiest of these garments are termed "luncheon" or  "matinee" blouses and are particularly suited to semi-formal occasions.  The softest silks are fashionable for  these dressy blouses, su.ch as taffeta,  having a silvery sheen and soft  weave, or crepe-finisliod silks Iii pale  colors, t'ho dark shades, being used  for blouses to accompany tho streot  costume of' vollo, cloth or mixed  stuffs.

Death,     of  Slieep   "From the Antipodes Said to be Coated  With  Gold.  Tho London Daily Mall published  tho following remarkable story:���������  kSomowhero on th'o vast grazing plains  of Australia or Now Zealand farmers  aro feeding tlieir flock's of sheep on  pasture so auriferous that tho very  animals show traces of tho outcrop  of gold in th'elr tooth". That, at  least, seems to bo tho inference to  bo derived from ovidenco which comes  not from tho Antipodes in tho news  of a fresh "strilco" of gold, but from  that vast centre of teeming population in the Kost End of London  kaown as Uethnal Green. In Hethnnl  Green sheep's lieads are a luxury,  even though tlioy Invariably are frozen imports from Australia und New  Jienlnnd.  To a medical man, Mr. H. tl. Stylo,  practising in tho Roman road, Uethnal Grceti. in due the credit of making th'o discovery. A fow days ago  ho was in the houso of a friend, n  member of the local Council, when  lie picked up tho jawbono-nf a sheep  which hud boon picked clean by the  Councillor's dog. It was only an  idle act to tenso tho dog, but the  doctor noticed a dull gleam of a  bronze color on  the teeth.  ASSAYED AS GOLD.  "Why, that looks liko gold," ho  said, after examining the teeth closely. They glistened dully with a coating of metallic, substance ..which  shone above tlio blackening caused  by tho saliva. The Councillor, who  had enjoyed the sheep's head for supper the previous night, was genially  sceptical. Hut the doctor removed  the teeth, wliich had boon loosened  by the dog, took them to his surgery and tested tho deposit of coating with aqua fortis. That gave tho  result  as  pure gold.  Next the teeth wore takon to a  jeweler, who scraped off tho metal  and submitted it to all tests known.  Tho substance was then guaranteed  to bo pure, fino gold.  The plnce of origin of the sheep's  head was easily traced���������to a continent, nt any rate. It was purchased  of a local butcher, who bought it  with many others in Smithfield Market. They had como in a frozen  state, from Australia or Now Zealand. Evon in Smithfield it is difficult to traco the exact country of  origin, for the heads como over separately from tho frozen carcases and  aro collected from vast 'areas.  Othor sheeps' heads were purchased  at random from liothnal Green purveyors, and some of them exhibited  traces of gold deposit on tho teeth in  just the samo way. 'ITioy had all  arrived from t'ho Antipodes. English  anil Scottish sheeps' heads were obtained, but there was no trace of  any auriferous deposit.  Dr. Style's theory Is thnt somewhere in' the Antipodes sheep are  being gra'/ed on soil so rich in alluvial gold that in short-cropping  tho grass thoir teeth, by constantly  coming in contact with the outcrop,  gradually receive a deposit of puro  gold.  EVERYBODY BOUGHT.    .  In its issue of the 10th inst. The  Dally Mail says that as a result of  its announcement of tho previous day  Uethnal Green woke to a desperate  longing for sheeps' heads. It would  have them at almost any price. Tho  butchers wero astonished at this sudden development or taste* "What's  it all moan?" asked ono perplexed  meat purveyor, who, it turned out,  shares with Mr. Balfour t'he distinction of not reading the papers. "I've  done nothing but servo 'jimmies' all  tho morning," this being the affectionate diminutive of the sheep's  head in circles where it is appreciated.  "Another butcher waxed humorous.

Round the stalls  there, and in tho cold-storage, groups  could bo seen all tho morning, peering anxiously into t"hij mouths of  slieep for signs of a gold mine.  Not all the teeth showed traces of  any metallic deposit, which, it is  suggested by a mining export from  Australia, could not be gold, but is  probably a discoloration of the enamel, such ns is sometimes seen In  pearls.

Dockyard and naval circles at Plymouth, England, have received with  astonishment the announcement . bf  the Secretary to the ' Admiralty in  tho Houso of Commons that tho now  Lord Nelson battJeships are to be  of 16,500 tons displacement."

When tho latest leviathan plans  were voted, it was known that Mr.  Phillip Watts, tho Director of Naval  Construction, had received instructions to keep down naval displacement as low as possiblo, consistent  with tho attainment of the standard of fighting value he was called  upon to realize.  Among members of the construction  staff it "is considered that Mr. Philip  Watts has not justified increased sizo  by increased fighting value. He has  sacrificed half . a knot speed ns  against thc King Edward class, and  although he has mounted more 9.2-  inch guns, this has been accomplished  bv suppressing tho useful battery of  len C-inch quick-firers, which tbo  Edward carry.  The armor distribution upon the  broadside is about thc same in both  classes, but the present war haa  taught us that armor is futile  againc't torpedo  attack.

Uniform Railway Rules  The railway companies of tho Dominion have agreed among themselves in response to a circular from  the railway commission, to draft a  uniform set of rules to govern the  operations of trains.

The roads will be compelled  to introduce tho block system where  ever the business is heavy enough to  make it necessary. Automatic switch  devices will be insisted upon so that  the semaphore will first show the  danger before a switch is opened.  Thc head and light signals will be  made uniform on all the roads, and a  rule will bo introduced that no train  hand shall work more than a speeilied  nuinliei' of hours each day whelhur he  wants to or not.  llcscrveil Scats at the Canada Drug and Book  Company's Store.
