J., Friday, t harged with conpiracy In limiting the supply of meat and poultry.

On the first real trial of strength in I he new House of Commons, the government defeated a fiscal amendment proposed by tbe opposition, 285 to 254. All the Na tionalists abstained from voting. The Laborites went with tbe Liberals. Tbe result Is considered satisfactory by the government, but ita majority depends on its ability to produce a plan that will deal in a drastic manner witb tbe Lords' veto power.

The barns and premises will be thoroughly disin fected and new pure blood Jersey cattle, which hsve been duly tested, will be in troduced, and tbe dairying business con tinued as heretofore. In our last issue, it j was ststed tbat tbe Mmlton herd had been under state quarantine for tbe past twelve years. Properly speaking, jhis was incorrect, as tbe owners have been at perfect liberty to dispose of their dairy products within or without tbe state, as they saw fit. When tlje first test was made twelve years ago an agreement was reached witb tbe then owner and the state cattle commission whereby none of the livestock was to be disposed of in Vermont until tbe herd was clear of tbe disease. This restriction wa frequently alluded to as a "quarantine," but was not in effect such, and as a matter of fact tbe Stock farm herd has nevr been in quarantine since Us formation.

To those who have Gold Fish we would give this bit of "medical" advice which we have from good authority : If the fish appear sick or the back fin drops to one side, put the fish in a weak solution of salt and water for fifteen minutes. Ours have proven a very healthy lot of gold fish and we have only had occasion to use this remedy twice with the whole lot. We have some fine, large, gold fish for sale at 10c each.
