The Boers were  utterly sin-prised, and finding their  retreat threatened, fled in disorder to  the eastward, leaving Colesberg in  General French's-hands.  London,     .Tan nary     2,    1000.���������The  latest news regarding Gen. French's  victory is as follows:   Yesterday afternoon   a   l)ig   force    of    cavalry   and  infantry   with  ten  guns,  under    the  personal eomomnd of General French,  moving   by a detour, occupied some  hills     three    miles    from   Colesberg,  where   the Boers   we're   in strength.  The    enemy's   position  extended six  miles around the village.   At daybreak  our aitillery opened the battle.     The  Boers    were   surprised,   but    replied  vigorously.     This  continued for two  hours, when   the Boer hotchkiss collapsed and was abandoned,  which we  captured.     All   the   Boer  guns  were  then   withdrawn   to . the   northward  ���������where we are harrassing their retreat  by a damaging shell  fire.   Our losses  are slight, but the Boers have suffered  heavily.   They may cross the Orange  river  at.    Norval'a   port,   where  the  bridge is still intact.

To Be Increased in Anticipation of Some  Grave Danger Menacing the Empire  Montuka.1.,  Dec. 28���������Never   before  in the history of Canada have such extraordinary activity shown   itself in  military circles as prevails at  present.  From recent events many persons  believe that, the Canadian   government  has  received   important   information  from the imperial authorities of a,'serious, danger  from  some  new  quarter,  coupled with a decided hint to put its  military house in  order so   as   to   be i  ready for any   eventuality.     A   high '  military,   authority who   stands   officially close to Hon. Dr.  Bnrden,  minister of militia, declares that   it   has  been decided to increase immediately  the permanent forces of Canada from  1.300 to 18,000 men.   The one Canadian  regiment of infantry is to be reinforced  I by nine other battalions, bringing the  majority total to a little   more   than  11.000, and the regular batteries   "A"-  and "B" of the Royal.. Canadian  artillery are to be added to hyToiir more  batteries.   Three other cavalry  regiments are to be added   to the present  regiment of Royal Canadian dragoons.  There is also to be organized   a   com-,  plete army hospital and army service  corps,  besides   a general  staff   under  Maj.-Gen. Hnt.ton.     As a proof   that  the information   may   bo   considered  trustworthy, the large military clothing house of Workman & Co.,  Montreal, lias received a   rush   order   for.  2,000 infantry. 1.000  artillery and 500  cavalry uniforms, and  it is said that  large manufacturers   in   other   cities  have received similar orders.     As all.  these uniform orders include the great  coat as ordinarily worn in  Canada,  it  would seem that the - troops  who will  wear these uniforms at least are not  for service in South Africa..���������' Added to  all this are government small arms.

The    plans     for   preparation's  were "successful.     The. infantry   and  fieldliftttery immediately made a feint  attack   upon   the   Boer's    front,   and  while,   the^e   proceeding   were    being  carried   out-   the.    cavalry   and   fight  artillery   got  completely    round   the  enemy's flank.    As arranged   the  programme '  was   performed   without  a  hitch.   The   Boers  were  utterly   surprised,     and   finding     their     retreat  threatened,   fled   in   disorder   to  the  eastward,   leaving  Colesberg   in   Gen  French's hands.

Christmas Tree at Salmon Arm.  The .annual   Christinas    tree    and  entertainment   of   the"  Salmon   Arm  Methodist Sunday School was held in  the    church    on   Saturday   last and  proved   a  gratifying    success.      The  Station echool accepted the  invitation  to join, but owing to > the disagreeable  roads only a few HcViolars were able to  be present.   This made  no difference  to   old   "Santa."   however,    fi,r with  surprising    generosity   he"  unloaded  presents until every  boy and gir.1  in  any way  connected 'with sthe schools  was made happy. - The different reci  tations, dialogues  and  choruses  wee  well rendered and .reflected  credit on  the     programme     committee,     Mrs.  Neelands,     Mrs,     Palmer    and    Mr.  Crandall.   They worked hard to make  ita success, also in training the scholars.   The church  was prettilv decor-  ated and the tree  was   the centre of  attraction especially for the  scholars.  Some    feared     that    the    unusual  amount   of  moisture   would cause a  falling off in the attendance, but their  fear   proved groundless.     When  the  superintendent,  Mr. R.   IT. Neelands.  took the chair he had the pleasure of  facing a crowded church.    Everyone  seemed pleased and the general verdict  was "best yet."

Mr. Tapping opened  by  asking for a collection  to  defray the  expenses of hall.   There was no response  except that  a   volunteer   choir   sang  God Save tne Queen.     After  a futile  attempt to get a secretary.  Mr. Tapping then explained the object of the  meeting,   which  was   to   discuss 'the  ->rmij;n,.i.tir.n.L fnr fj^i.-if .mil aldermen.  These he rend from the act and  then  called   for an   expression   of   opinion  from those present. The only re.-ponse  came from Aid.

In   order, to,-  prevent   this  Col.  Pilcher in   making,  his forcpd march from B?lmont left'-' a.  British trooper at every farm  house,  with   instructions   not   to   allow  the  natives to  leave  their .huts,   patrols  calling the natives hourly in   order  tot  prevent their escape.

There has been a good market for  choice creamery butter throughout the  summer and the average prices obtained have been somewhat in advance of  previous years.  The following is :i comparative statement of the output at the several government creameries in Alberta, during the summer season (May-November) of 1S99. 1S0S, and 1S97:  Creameries.

Since the opening up of the mining districts of British Columbia a  new era has opened up for the fanners of Western Canat-i. A few years  ago the problem of Uncling a profitable market for the produce of the  Western farms v.;is a difficult thing  and preplexing one for the pioneer  termer?.. The local markets could  but handle a limited quantity of the  produce and as a conseque������ce business was done on a trading basis,  i.e., the farmer who had produce to  sell had to take it out largely in  groceries, dry goods, etc., and the  local merchants would take chances  on finding a ultimate market for a  vary often motley lot of perishable  produce which was not an easy matter  It was almost impossible to obtain  satisfactory prices owing to conditions peculiar to new countries and  limited markets.  A great change has taken place  since," however. The mining and  ���������business centres in British Columbia,  since developing and steadily growing, require regularly large quantities  of food material, for which the customers are quite willing to pay good  prices if the quality is right. Due recognition is given to tne quality and  this is one of the most encouraging  features of the market besides the  steady and growing demand. The  transportantion facilities have been  freight rates have been materially reduced and: a regular refrigerator car  very much improved of late. The  service has been pu't. on the principal  railway lines during the summer  months, with a view to facilitating  the marketing of perishable food products. The shipper can have his  butter, eggs and meats sent through  to their destination with as little delay as possiblo and without any appreciable deterioration in quality  durins transit.  The British Columbia, market  an excellent one and on that account  it is not surprising "rhat at times  eomrjetition is quite keen, and naturally the shipper sending the best  goods will have the preference of the  trade. Of the different; kinds of  farm produce there is none so ��������� variable in quality as butter, nor subject to a greater fluctuation in price.  Some brands sell at the very top  Ffrice. others will scarcely sWl at  eny price. The chemical composition of "he two may be exactly alike  and the probabilities are 'that, ordinarily, the inferior butter was produced at a greater cost! per pound  than that selling for the highest  market price. This is how it usually goes, -unskilled v.s. skilled labor.  While individual tastes may differ,  there is a certain recognized standard of quality or package, peculiar  to each market, which meets the general requirements, and "the producer  who wishes to cater to any particular  maket or customer will do well to  study their requirements and, as near  -as��������� possible.���������endeavor���������to-meet^them���������  The following facts, gathered from  an experienced source give a fairly  good-idea of the requirements of the  market in   British Columbia. ,  The quality of the butter should  be as near uniform as as possible,the  flavor pure and sweet. As the flavor  is the essential point in the qualify  of butler, particular care should be  taken in guiding the ripening of the  cream  in the   right  direction.  As socn as the butter is made it  should be placed and held in good  cold storace until shipped to the con-  sum"-. No mattc-r how good the  flaror of the butter may be when  first made, it will very soon deteriorate unless held at a low temperature.  The t":-:ti:ro or grain should be-  quite apparent when a thin slice of  butter be broken in two, or if a  plug ho taken out with a tryer. tli-i  end should .-how a clean break. The  butter s-hould also carry a tuflicient  ->erceniage of moisture to make it  paiatable and to draw doer on the  back of the tryer. In fact the majority o:" the buyers like to see a  few small drops of clear, sparkling  brine on the back of the tryer when  drawing a plug from a package for  testing. If the butter be worked  rather dry the customers generally  characterize  it as  being  greasy.  The color should be fairly high,  as1 near the natural June color as  possible. Streakiness can be avoided  by working the butter sufficiently  after the salt has had time to dissolve.  The salting is perhaps the point  wherc-in the requirement of our local  ��������� "Krar-Kri-"���������iiiffiire���������BjOit��������� tfiilr- the old  country markets. While the latter  wants only about half an ounce of  salt per pound of butter, the former  requires no*, less than one and ono-  quartc-r our.ces per pound, some customers prefer even a lit'ile more than  that.  The packing is also a very important point to observe. The packages  should be clean and look inviting to  .the buyer, as the outward appearance of a package gives him the first  impression of it. If the impression  be favorable, so much the better for  the contents upon subsequent! examination.  Whilst same largo size packages,  from 50 pounds up, sell well on the  general raarket.the smaller ones seem  to have the preference particularly  for family use.

While the above result is a gratii.\-  ing one, it must be admitted thni  there is yet a Kreat deal or room or  improvement. Considering the number  of people who aro engaged in dairv  farming in Alberta and the number ot  milch cows kept, the average pioduc-  tion is yet very small.  There can be no frood reason wliy  wintei- dairving should not be followed mi extensively in Northern Alberta.  The naturejof the soil :md_ climate is  most favorable for tTi'c growing of an  abundance of feed for tho stock: dur-  the winter and there is a.lso sufli  taught.     He gives the substance  of  tho report of a royal commission appointed by the    Lord    Lieutenant of  !Ireland  at  tho request of  the commissioners of national education. The  models    from   which   and   the   room  in which  tho children work are here  described.    In a room 24x30 feet properly  fitted    with    benches,   etc,   ten  classes   of   thirty   pupils   each   coiud  receive instruction in a week.     The  models are    constructed    on  certain  definite' principles.      They  must  not  bo objects of luxury; they should be  or service in the  house;    should    be  capahlo   of   being   completed   by   the  young learners without help;    rhould,  is a. rule, be of wood;    staining and  polishing   had     better     be   omitted;  economy in wood should  oc i-otwldor-  cd;   the harder as  well as the softer  woods       (the     extremes      excepted)  should   be  employed;     turnery    and  carving  should   be   taught    only    in  exceptional   ca,=es;    the   development  of the sense of form should bo kept  in mind in the choice of objOBts:  and  finally all tho exercises that the child  is capable of making should be properly  graduated  and   included   in    tho  series in due proportion.    One general  principle  in  the arrangement of    me  scries should    bo borne    in mind���������it  should   pToceod   from   the   easier   to  U,o  more  tllllU-iilt.    The  early   tasks  should be easily and  quickly learned,  ifew   tools' being  needed,   and   variety  ishotild   never   bo   absent     t't-oii.   any  !sorie������     Tho   knife���������the   fundamental  tool-should  be   most  frequently  employed���������at   the   beginning    especially.  The teacher's judgment will of course  go for a good deal, in this as in other  branches   of   instruction.     The   system is now on ii fair way to be established as a branch  of popular education   in   Canada   and   the   experiment  will be   watched   with   interest.    The  results to be looked for are not merely  dexterity  and     industry.       Sloyu  jives a healthier tone to all branches  ol' education, and  if it only  redeems  what we know as sleight of hand (for  sleight is the English  equivalent for  sloyd)  from the reproach of ages, no  small victory will have been won.

Tho balance of the not price realized at the  creameries is paid to HJio patrons,  after deducting tho manufacturing'  charge, at tho close of the season's  business.  During the present winner four  government creameries are in operation in Northern Alberta, namely  those located at Innisfail. Hod Door,  Tindastoll and Wotaskiwin. In addition to these.a private creamery at  Bowden is being operated throughout  the  year.  Under   ibho   present     arrangements  the   department    is     koeprng     open  cream   receiving  stations    at  various  points   on  the  railway    line   for  the  accommodation   of    Mio    people   who  wish   to  patronize    thorn,     and     the !  cream is  being received  and   shipped |  by  train   every   week   to  tho   nearest j  creamery in operation.

London, Dec. 28.���������Competent military critics in London regard the  campaign as 'at a complete deadlock  for tho present, owing to tho dispersal o������ the British forces and the lack  of adequate-transports. They believe  it; will be many weeks before Lord  Roberts will bo able to reorganize  an effective move. The Imperial  government, according to a despatch  from Calcutta to the Times, has accepted the offer of two batteries  mado by-the Indian government.  A despatch to the Times from Piet-  ermaritzburg dated Dec. 21 says:  Strong suspicion exists here that ostensibly innocent bills of lading furnished by German, steamers arriving in Delagoa bay are really concealed coHtrnbrand and- the local newspapers arc urging a more rigid examination  of  ciirgocn.  Lord Stanley has accepted a position o������ Lord Robert's staff and will  retire from parliament. This adds  another to the long list of heirs  to great titles who arc serving thoir  country at the scat of war. The patriotism of the classes has been equal  to all requirements of the situation.  Equally sturdy Is the loyalty of the  masses, which is the thenw of every  music hall   and   thetftrn at night.  LADYSMITH SAFE  ation today says the time has apparently arrived for the nation to  insist, if not upon military dictatorship, at least upon the admission into  the cabinet of a military minister empowered to veto any proposals detrimental to the success of full prosecution of the war and also that the  administration of the army should  bo placed wholly in tho hands of a  tried military administration.  Sir   George White   Heliographs   " All  is  Well."  London. Dec. 2S.-(l:30)-Wmsum  Churchill's message from Ghe\cl\  Camp is perhaps responsible for some  over coloring of the gravity of the  situation, but. all today's despatches  convev the impression that Ocncrai  Buller may be intending another attack upon the Boer ��������� position. Cer-  tainlv the Boers aro not inactive. At  both'the Modder and Tugela. rivers  they arc said to be strengthening  their forces and extending the defence works, which in both cases arc  seemingly almost impregnable.  As showing the difficulty of obtaining accurate information the correspondent of the Daily News at Capetown under date of December 21st,  announces that General " Bailor is  coming to Capetown to meet Sir  Charles' Warren and then both will  go   to  Modder   river.

It was taken  hy the laborers thomsulve.-i,   however,    to  express the distinct promise of   the   Liberal party to them in oase   of   success in  tho elections.    It   is   hardly too much to  say.that the sanio belief  was   tho   direct  .cause of the success that did  come to the  Liberals.  Mr. Colliugs was not the man, how-  over, lo let the laborers' hopes bo disappointed. His famous small holdings resolution soon, followed; and it wurf the  foundation of the Allotment Aot, which  has saved muny a rural district in England from ruin. Tho resolution upset  Lord Salisbury's Government and made  Mr. tfiillinss an under secretary in Mr.  Gladstone's third Ministry.

The   public  did not regard   this   somber   isauc  with  favor, bo few were issued.   One   ot thes&  stamps was Bent to tho   Hamilton   post-  office, where it was Hold to an old gentleman, who said it was a shame   to   print  the   Queen's   pUture   on   a   Btamp that  might   be   handled   hy   profane  hands.  Tenderly the gentleman put it on a parcel, sending it to i> friend in the   United  States. Hero, in the waste   basket, it lay  for many a day, till on errand boy found  jE,,���������������nd__qynpklx_tran5ferr.ed..it   to    his  album. Despairing of Ketfiing'lirgocid'col"  lection, and his fever somewhat abating,  ho sold tbem to a dealer. Tho new ownjjr.  on looking at the catalogue,   found   that  what be bad paid $5 for was worth   $25.  Accidentally this scamp was slipped into  a 05-cent   packet,   and   sout  to a dealer  residintr in Hamilton.   When   the   latter  oponnd the p:iek6t he was   astonished   to  find such a valuable stamp,   and,   boinp;  honest, wrote hia friend to inform him of  what had happened, offering  him 51.200  for it.   The   offer   was   accepted and tho  stamp had increased   in value and not a  few came from u difitnnce to look at   tho  treasure. One day an liingliah nobleman,  who,   through   a   Canadian friend,   hud  hoard of the stamp, offered Jl,500, which  oiler was   accepted.   The   Knglish   lord,  falling, in'lore with an American heiruss,  and   wishing   to   gain   the "favor of her  brother, presontod him with the stamp as  a token of his osteeni.' Here,   in its new  and luxurious AmericaD homo,   it   ciimc  to a sad end, for one   day   the maid, by  mistake, swept   ths   stamp,   which  had  accidentally fallen out of the album, into  the are. In an instant the stump,   which  thousands had hoard of and   longed   for,  went up in smoke to the hrpadblue sky,  leaving not a trace behind.

Poorly ventilated, over heated kitchens,  saya one who has given tho matter  much thought, are responsible in many  cases not only for the proverbial ill temper of cooks, bnt for their predisposition  to disease as well. Rheumatism, varicose  veins and tuberculosis are frequent maladies which Effl: :.t the cook, while alcoholism and a first class cook nro too  often synonymous to be pleasant. Tho  reason adduced .for the prevalence of  the'alcohol habit is that men. or women  trorkiu? in air heavy with odors of food  are seldom hungry, but crave stimulants.

Graham informs the Herald  that thp spot on the backwater nn  which skating is mine on is at least 15  feet deep and persons watching Hip  skater' should be careful not to crowd  on the ice. which is not verv  thick.  NOTE AND COMMENT  It is becoming more and more apparent from the history of mining in  tliis part of Kootenay that the safest  mining investment which can be made  is in the small local mining companies  which are formed to mine and not for  the purpose of selling mining stock.  They are formed by men on the spot,  men of character and standing in their  own community, who either know the  properties which the company intend*  to operate or else know the man, on  the strength of whose experience and  faith in the property they are willing  lo go into the project. Such companies nowadays as ,i rule lock up their  promoters' stock till the mine is on a  paying basis and thu purchasers of  treasury stock are further protected,  because every cent of it is put into the  ground. There are no highly salaried  officials, no unnecessary expenditure  before the mine is proved, no frills,  nothing in short of the waste and folly  which has heralded so many English  companies to the bursting point.  Neither on the other hand is the  company a mere pretence to enrich  its promoters hy the sale of shares on  the Boston or Chicago markets. There  is no lead pipe cinch about mining  anywhere. But where there is the  honest intention to develop a property, which has been carefully selected  by a practical man, whose idea of  making money in mining is solely by  the sale of ore, then there certainly is  the best show to attain the desireil  result. The money of the shareholders  is neither ��������� itlotic'ally wasted nor  fraudulently done away with. It is  put into developing a mining properly  which is" almost certain to be the  choice of the district, and whilesuccess  in mining can no more be guaranteed  than in any other undertaking, the  chances of failure are enormously  minimized by the experience and  character of the men by whom the  company was organized.  will be much at home under the very  similar surroundings on the veldt.  Their proverbial handiness and ability  to perforin the desired result with  whatever means are on the spot will  prove of immense service to our  " prairie rustlers" in the wilds of  South Africa.  We Are  Stock Taking  The City Clerk In an Earthquake.  Last Wednesday the bottom dropped  out of the Big Bend wagon road at a  spot between the Gun Club ground  and the turn off to the cemetery.  There is a hole theie now 20 feet deep  and 18 feet wide. The cave-in was  probably caused by the creek which  comes out of the hill near the brickyard and runs underground. City  Clerk Shaw was standing right on the  spot, which gave way, when an  ominous crackiug noise warned him to  get a move on, which he did, just as  the ground fell in.  Billy Hawkins and Kid Traxler are  going to Hght for $500 aside in Calgary in a few days.  Election Notice.

" A number of  skaters took advantage of the holiday  to indulge in their favorite amusement  on. the backwater across the railway  'Bridge,  Joe Martin was (o hold a meeting in  Vancouver tonight to discuss "Provincial Politics and Mr. Si ft on." There .is  very little doubt .that those present  will enjoy a considerable treat. There  are. very few politicians in Canada, who  would feel really comfort able if they  knew that Fighting Joe was after  their scalp, And his intimate knowledge of the inside of both Manitoba  and British Columbian politics make  it particularly interesting for his  political opponents and enemies,which  are many, in these two provinces. He  is still very much in the ring and  knows altogether too much to be  peruriiiently kept outside. Still this  guerilla warfare, though intensely"  annoying to Mr. Martin's enemies, is  not of much practical effect. It is  helping the Conservative cause enormously it is true, but still one rather  fails to see how that helps Mr. Martin.  One is curious to see what'will be the  upshot of it as regards that gentleman  himself. He is ciedited with the  intention of forming a small labor  party sufficient in strength to hold the  balance of power and enable him to  dictate, a labor programme to what  ever government happens to lie in  power. It is the only scheme which  under the present conditions he can  perhaps adopt, but it must beadmitted  that there are great possibilities behind  it.

The Dominion Government will have  the support of everyone, hoth friends  and opponents, in the despatch of the  second Canadian contingent. Any  politician who ventures to oppose the  project, thereby automatically closes  himself out of the running. Many  people would have liked a stronger  contingent numerically sent. But it  must be remembered that the equipment of field batteries and mounted  riflemen is a much more costly and  difficult matter than to provide an  equal number of infantry. The three  field batteries and four f-quadrons of  mounted rifles which Canada is sending this time represent a good dfal  more in expenditure and trouble n"of  organizing and shipping than double  the number of infantry.
