port for 1898 of 58 creameries and 17
cheese factories. The large gain shown
thin year in the official records in due to
issuance of licenses to all farmers having
separators and manufacturing butter
and cheese scientifically. Large num
bers of new small separators have been
put in by fanners who have hitherto
manufactured in the old way, and the
increase of product will not, therefore,
correspond closely to the increased num
ber of registered dairymen.

Lawyers and Kditors.
A neighboring editor who places his
profession a little ahead of that of the
legal light, says: A lawyer may, in a
court room, call a man a liar, a Villain,
a scoundrel, or a thief, and no one makes
a complaint when court adjourns. U a
newspaper prints such a reflection on a
man's character there is a libel suit or a
dead editor. This is owing to the fact
that the people believe what an editor
f-ays; what a lawyer says cuts no figure.

When we would like to
feel strong-, vigorous and
ambitious, we are weak,
tired and dull; appetite
is poor, food is not relished,
sleep does not seem to
refresh, we go to bed tired
and get up tired. This
condition is because of
thin, impure, sluggish
