The Inter- mediate 'backs defended in capital style, and the custodiant saved many critical situations". Play was vigorous, and, at half-time, no score had been registered. In the second stage the tussle became exciting, the Brigade severely testing the schoolboys' goalie, who cleared in fine style. Both sides attacked al- ternately, and, ultimately, C.

Arthur were conspicuous in the front line, and W. Pritchard and W. Phillips did splendid work at back. The custodian saved his side from defeat. J. Metcalf, W. Grocock and J. Whislay were I prominent in the Brigade forward line, and T. Stephens defended well at back.
Wanted, Buttermakers. BRITISH Butter is unquestionably better than for- eign. yet the latter is often bought in preference. This is an injustice both to the British producer and to the buyer. It if an injury which could easily be avoided. The British housewife believes that butter presenting a rich goidn uniform colour is the ideal. The foreijyn producer meets her wish. and all his butter has the rich golden colour which sells. A per- fectly safe means is provided whereby the British maker can impart to hiq butter jurt that golden colour- ing which will commend it to ihe eye, as decidedly as its quamy will commend it to the p?inte. The re md is ? "SILVER CHURN" BUn?ER CO LOUR manufactured by OLDJTRI.D. PATTINSON, & Co., of Manchester, the successful survivor of the sever- est tests at the principal shows, -where it has gained First Cls awards for 30 years. EquaUv satis- factory i" the high praise it has won in the numerous dairies where it is regularly used. These conipt-tent approvals are due to the absence of any unevenness or muddiness in the colouring, and to ho fact that the use of "SILVER CHURN" does no. affect the butter- milk. The butter itself is not injured in the process it is improved. Its delicate creamy flavour is en- hanced. It should be clearly understood that SIL- VER CHURN" is a vegetable product, entirely free from any aniline dye. (A guarantee by the makers to this effect will be given any user desiring it).
