Six children were born to tbero, two of whom, including Clarence, the beir ap parent, died. The king waa ot tbe Houae of Hanover, wbicb took tbe monarchy of England with Ueorge I in 1714.. Albert was Prince of , Wales during the long reign of his mother. He travelled extensively, visiting Canada find the United Mates in 1x80, where he was re ceived with enthusiasm. On the death of Victoria in 1901, Albert succeeded under th. muni F.dwarri VII. Hia reian baa therefore lasted only about nine years. Edward idoacribed as a typical fcng iebmao in his range of tboogM, manners and tastes. He was a stickler for form, yet easy of apuroach and a thorough I "good fellow." He liked horses and ! vachta and sporte of all kinda. He en I invert the thehtre and actora. He waa very tactful aud wise in Judgment, unr inu hia reiau be constantly exercised bis good office in behall of peace and good understanding with bis neighbors, ana succeeded In bringing Great Britain into close relations with some of her heredi tary foes.

GRANT, REIALL BLTCGIST. PRODUCERS HOLD FIRM. Llttte) Milk Being Shipped from This Locality During War. When It became noised abroad I--I week tbat the White Crosa Milk company waa abipping wbole milk to Boston a thing it was not known to be in tbe habit of doing and tbat, furthermore, tbe milk was being sent in the cant sod in tbe car of tbe contractors, Hood 4 Sons, to whom tbe farmers of this section are refusing to furnish dtilk nntil they pay the price demanded, tbe patrons of tbe White Croat thought tbe time bsd corns to ssk for an explanation. W. W. Jonea wrote to G. E. Miller, manager nf tbe White Crosa, at bia Boa ton address and stated tbat from tbe farmera' point of view this shipping of whole milk from tbe local plant to tbe city contractors was simply aiding tbe contractors to secure indirectly from tbe fanners tbe milk they bad determined not to sell at tbe low price offered. If tbe producers should continue to patronize the White Croat company while that com pany aupplied the contractors with tbe milk they could not buy directly from tbe farmers, tbe latter would defeat tbe very ends fur which they organized their Producers' unions and entered upon tbe wide-spread atrike in which they are en gaged. Personally Mr. Jones felt tbat if hia milk supply could not be kept out of Boston, It would be better for bim to em ploy as middlemen the Brigham people, who offer a higher price than the White Crosa. Mr. Miller thought best to come to Randolph and reached town Friday. It waa arranged for him to meet the patrons of his company in Grange ball Monday evening but, owing to tbe bard rain, not many of tbe farmers put in ao appear ance. Tbe producers' aianapomi was again made clear to Mr. Miller and in re ply be aaid that he supposed that after he had bought tbe milk be bad a right to do what be pleased with it. He added, how ever, tbat be bad been abipping wbole milk to Boston lately because be needed it and, though it went in the Hood cans and the Hood car, it wat drawn Immedi ately npon arrival in tbe city, to hia own place. Being short on cans, be had bor rowed those of tho Hoods and tbe use of their car was merely auotber accommoda tion. 1 Tbe meeting waa not altogether satis factory and did not result in any clear understanding between the producers and the White Cross. A dozen of the White Cross patrons, w hose supply of milk is roughly estimat : ed at 4000 pounds, have been carrying their product to tbe Co operative cream ery since tbe milk war began. Hince tbe meeting Monday night W. W. Jones has transferred. his patronage to tbe Co-operative concern. This creamery paid for March 34 '., cents a pound for butter fat, ot which It received 5H4,8D6 pounds. It made 7118 pounds of butter, sold for 12397.20, and paid ill patrons 2120.02. A farmer who did bis own hauling to the creamery realized two cents more a pound for hatter fat. Lociiiy, the farmers remain firm in dr- mauding a winter price for summer milk from the Boston contractors, and no mill. it being shipped directly In Hood ct Sons' car. I he rnortnneio isews reports in situation in that locality as follows: Not a can of milk has been loaded ai this station for the Boston dealers since May 1, when they, attempted to reduo tbe prioe. Tbe car goes through each risv as usual and while it carried a little stor age milk snd a few cans which it ws: able to pick up along tbe line the past week, it looked as if it must he run at 0 considerable losa to the dealers. In the meantime the farmera sre taking care ot their milk at tbe creamery or otherwise and realizing as much or more than when tbey sold for shipment to Boston. Fred A. Rogers of Meriden, president of the branch of tbe Milk Producers' union, having Its center at White River Junc tion and Including tbe towns of Hertford, Hartland, Sharon, Plainfield and Leba non, states mar me rarmera in inai sec tion are well satisfied with the refusal of the contractors to grant a continuance of tbe winter rates. At present tbe major ity cf tbe farmers are using tbe milk in their dairies where butter can tie made to sell at from 28 to 30 cents per pound, cheese and cream also finding a profitable sale. Tbe sale of tbe butter, cheese and cream will be more to their advantaare than sending tbe milk to Boston even at winter rates. When the contractors grant the price demanded, an outcome of which Mr. Rngerj is certain, he thinks it is probable that only at.oot one-tent 0 of those formerly sending milk to Roton will resume so doing. This agrees wit h tbe conditions in Central Vermont." A. D. Kvarts of Vergennes writes to the Free Press of similar trouble in his section with Now York cpntractors. He bs.vs : "During last winter we were offered f2.10 per hundred for our milk to be hipped to New York. This milk was sold in New York at 9c. per quart. This price has now been reduced to Sc.; about 11 per cent off. The price now offered and paid for milk is J1.20 per hundred; about 43 per cent off. We are asked to take f 1.10 per hundred through June; 48 per cent off. It is reasonable to suppose that when this milk cost fi.10 per hun dred and sold at 9c per quart there ait a living profit. What is this profit totlay ? Tbe president of this New York company is quoted as saying to a reporter of the BoNton Globe (in discussing tbe 'milk war' now on in Boston) 'Let me imprees this upon any and all whu are interested in the subject: Selling milk is our busi-! ness, and we are in the business to maka j money. Sentiment plays no part. We are in this business not for our health hut to sell milk.' "Tbe writer is milking 60 cows. The I cream is going into batter, the milk into I hogs. This skim milk is worth ZS per cent of the price oflered for the w hole milk. "Fellow dairymen, get out your pen cils." B. A. Manchester has beard from a farmer in Plainfield, N. H., Mr. Daniels by name, who drew milk eight miles to car it at Lebanon, N. H. IS miles a day of teaming bot discontinued shipping milk after tbe price dropped to 23 cents a can. Ha got out bia pencil and figured tbat la three days be bad carried to tbs j car 105 cans, which st 23 cents brought ; 24.15. Putting tbs aame quantity of milk into butter, be bsd 93 pounds at 32 ! cents, or 29.78 a net gain of (5.61 over ! 7,ba' ,r.T l,h' """I"0'0' I n,) ,b"d the sklm milk worth at least 25 cents a hundred, and bs bsd cut out 18 miles of travel every day. Death of F. E. Amsden. Brigbt'a disease rsn a long snd fstal course in the case of Fred Erwin Amsden, who passed away at 9:30 o'clock Monday morning after nearly two yeara of failing health.
