In Vancouver precinct the vote was con siderably increased over that of two years ago. but in the country precincts, especially on Lewis river, the voters failed to turn out.

Thieves entered the vault of a private church yard, and stole therefrom the body of A. T. Stew art, the deceased millionaire. They broke open the coffins, taking the remains. aw ay in a sack.

Doer an t i><";t Bklna. People generally do not know much of the number of deer killed in the Sound country. Many farmers are annoyed very much l>v ihe deer feeding on their crops in the night time. Hunting deer on the main land is very uncertain and difficult sport, as the country is too much ob struct 'tl by fallen timber and under brush to lie easily traveled over. By discovering the feeding grounds and runways of the deer, persons can sometimes capture them by lying in wait or still hunting at day break, they usually being secreted during the greater portion of the day. The most common way of huntittg deer is by putting dno-s on their track, when they usually take to the water after a short run. The hunters fol low in boats, and easily secure the animal. Deer sometimes sink be neath the water when shot; to prevent this accident a rope is usually thrown over the head. (hi many of the Islands in tho Sound deer are so numerous that they annually desti ny a large amount of ...

Rotation of Crops. Among the essentials requisite to main tain a high degiee of success in cultiva tion, a proper system of rotation of crops occupies a prominent place. The advan tages of rotation in farm crops arc well known; yet, in the garden, the practice is verj common to grow the same kind of crops for yeais on the same spot of ground, ltis, pel haps, within the bounds of possibility to pursue this course suc cessfully, but to do so will require an an nttoi return to the soil, in some form, ol the several ingredients extracted by the plants. Our knowledge of the applica tion of science will not warrant much faith in this direction, even If chemists were decided as to exact respective amounts of the ingredients used by va rious crops. But allowing it to be prac tically attainable, and looking at it in the ligin of mere economy, v change of crop is every way desirable; since by proper care two dissimilar crops may be pro- ' duccd on the same ground in the same ' season; and, fu...
