To My Many Friends I am pleased to make a report to you of the pleasant visit my wife and I had in "Western Canada. We visited the territorties of Al berta, Assiniboia, and Saskatchewan, and found them far surpassing our im agination, but little did I expect to find such rich, loamy soil, so much of it, and so uniform in its level prai rie lay. I do think the soil of Canada as a rule equals if not excels the fin est prairie farm lands of Indiana. These . lands are immense in their richness, and when once the sod is rot ted and pulverized, it is as pliable and as easily cultivated as Indiana sandy soil. Western Canada, from my point of view, offers as fine opportunities for mixed farming as any place in my knowledge. The long, sunshiny days, together with the rich soil, produce very fine wheat. s, barley, flax and other cereal products. There is scarce ly any attempt to raise corn,' except early varieties for table use. The sea son is too .short to depend upon ma turing field corn. From the stand point of getting this land ready for the plow, I must say that I never saw such a vast extent, practically all ready so all that one has to do is to hitch up the plow and go to work. This Is not the case with all the Canadian land, however; some of it has quite a bit of timber, much of it may be called brush land, and some of it has lovely forest groves, dotted here S0Z0D0HT for tha TEETH 25c Law books are covered with sheep skin and sheep's kin contribute much to the support. of lawyers.

I -have no doubt but that this coun try excels as a grazing . or ranching country, because they have such rich grass, having an abundance of rain to keep it fresh. They also have plenty of water streams, and as a rule water may be reached at a depth of from 20 to 40 feet. From this you can see there can be plenty of hay mown for winter feeding, and I liable farmers to tell have had re- , me that their stock will feed on hay alone, and be ready for market in the spring.

Painted Krager's Portrait. - Shortly after the arrival of Kruger In Holland his admirers were anxious to have his - portrait painted, but he refused on the ground that he had no time. Finally, however. Miss Taerese Schwarze succeeded In persuading him to sit. He chose the morning hours from 7 to 9. and she painted him read ing a bible, which she brought to the Bitting for that purpose. He was pleased with her suggestion and after ward accepted the bible as a present. The portrait was painted at Utrecht. Belpfal Hint for the Patient Darner. A suggestion that any home darner may appropriate was got recently while watching a class of little girls at work at sewing school. For the b'g knee holes of children's stockings . a piece of strong net was first basted over the hole, the darning then accom plished with great neatness and strength and in a much shorter time than in another way. The same meth od was applied with equal success to the mending of woven underwear. -Harper's Bazar. The Popularity of Pewter.
