WESTERN CANADA IS CALLED THE "GARDEN OF EDEN," Ct a Former Resident of Reed City. Michigan. In a letter to the Reed City, Michi gan, Clarion, Mr. Jas. G. Armstrong, of Meltford, Saskatchewan, says, writ ing on 27th May, 1901: "This is a fine country for a poor man, as he can go out on the hay slews and cut all the hay he needs. He turns his cattle out on the prairie, and when he is not using his horses he turns them out also. There is such an abundance of food, they never wan der away. "A lady, who has lived here eight years told me that this was the origi nal "Garden of Kden". I certainly would believe it, if we could only find the apple trees. But as it is, we have many varieties of fruit strawberries, cranberries, saskatoons, huckleberries, red and black currants, dewberries, plums, red and black cherries, and red raspberries. All of these fruits grow wild. Then the flowers that dot the prai.-ies, making the a look like a real garden. We have eaten of the wild red currants, and they are equal If not superior to those grown in Michigan. We have sweet corn IVi inches high. As the Western farmers are all done seeding, branding cattle and sheep shearing are now progress ing. Wool is only five cents a pound, and many ranchers have on hand last year's clip. I enclose you a potato blossom, slice of new potato, which measured 6 inches when cut. This is no fairy tale, as we are so much tarther than Reed City. It is all facts. Come up and see. This has been truly called the 'garden of the west.' With fruits and flowers, lakes and streams, fish and fowl, beau tiful rivers, tracts of timber and mountains, what more does a man want?"

One said to the other: "I don't blame you for being close, it is in the family. " Why, I remember your father when tie ran a grocery store. He was so close that if a fly settled on the sugar barrel he used to catch the fly, dust its 'feet off with a broom and let It go." "So?" said the other. "You needn't get chesty. Your father was a farmer. I can remember when he raised bees. He made those poor bees work hard all day. and, not satisfied with that, he crossed them with lightning bugs and made them work nights." "That's right," said the first, good humoredly. "The old man was a thrifty chap. Why. I remember - when he crossed strawberry plants and milk weed and got strawberries and cream." Then they had a drink. PEACE WITH HONOR. A gentleman, whose fruit orchards had been very often robbed, caught a boy up one of his trees. "Come down, you young rascal!" shouted the owner. "Noa fear, and you there," replied the urchin. "Well, I'll wait till you do." "Verra weel," said the lad. They had waited about an hour when an idea occurred to the boy. Snatch ing an apple, he took a steady aim. and hit the old fellow on te head with it. "Hallo, what's up now?" "It's just this. I'm gaun to teep peltin till every apple's off the tree unless ye promise not to lick me, for if I'm gaun to get a hidin' I'm gaun to hae me sport for it. What d'ye say?" The old fellow had to agree. GOOD REASON FOR MODESTY. An officer in one of the English vol unteer regiments who had made him self exceedingly unpopular with the men was coming home one evening when he slipped and feu into deep wa ter. He was rescued with great dif ficulty by a private in his own regi ment. Tie officer was profuse in his expres sion of gratitude and asked his pre server how he could reward him. "The best way," said the soldier, "is to say nothing about it." "But why?" asked the officer in amazement. "Because," was the blunt reply, "if the other fellows knew I'd pulled you out they'd chuck me in." Youth's Companion. Fl'S IX THE PARLOR. When you see a young man sitting in a parlor with the ugliest 4-year-old boy that ever frightened himself in a mirror clambering over his knees. Jerk ing his necktie out of place, ruffling his shirt front, pulling his hair, kick ing his shin3, feeling in all his pock ets ior coppers, while the unresisting victim smiles all the time like the cover of a comic paper, you may safely say that the howling boy has a sister who is in a room not twenty feet away, . and that the young man doesn't come there just for the fun of playing with her brother.

One of these agents. Mr. Waldemar Jockelson, who resided last winter with tribes of northeastern Siberia, has written to Dr. Franz Boas that the mythology and folklore of the Siberians and Alaskans are identical, and he has found evi dence of racial similarity. Nearly 200 years ago evidence began to be found pointing to the fact that Behring strait had been crossed by natives. There had evidently been communications between the natives of America and Asia, a fact that, of course, indicated the original identity of the natives in habiting the two continents. The Rus sian explorer, Behring, did not find the American mainland till 1741, but thirty years before Behring saw the shores of America, separated from Asia only bya narrow arm of the sea, .a Russian named Popoff visited the Chu kchi natives and brought the news of islands and a continent beyond the eastern point of Asia. The Siberian natives told Popoff that there was a great land to the east, that they had seen the natives there and strange to relate these eastern natives wore tails. Russian geographers could not assimi late this information and relegated the continent as well as the tails to the limbo of fiction. But we now know that Popoff accurately reported the Chukchi narrative and that the natives told the troth as far as they under stood it. It has been conclusively shown by out ethnological investiga Miss Alice Rigg of Windsor, Canada, has proved that there i no limit to woman's possibilities- to the money making world. She has opened up a new profession, and" a profitable one, for her sisters, by tacking out her shingle as an engraver of tombstones. Miss Rigg had a hard fight to win her way into the business world up in conservative Canada and she had an other tough struggle to keep her place when once she did gain' a- foothold among the bread winners.. Her indomitable pluck and" persever ance, however, brought her- success and she has established a: large and flourishing business and: is now ac-' knowledged the most successful carver on marble in the city of Windsor. For many years, ever since she left off" short skirts and pinafores, in fact, she has been interested' in the work whleh is her father's profession, and with the end in view of some day as sisting him in his work or starting in business for herself, she studied art. She now carve3 beautiful designs and; artistic letters on marble-and en joys the work as well as the honor which comes to a full-fledged tomb stone engraver. The work of a "monument artist" is not so simple as the uninitiated think. It takes a true eye,, a firm wrist, well developed muscle, and' the talent of a sculptor to wield the mallet and ii New Profession i Mi Ali I S Engraves for a Voriari ; j Wyoming Lands for ff-.sr Rners. The almost world-wide movement for the colonization of the broad ex panses of Western- territory as yet un dotted by homes of settlers. Is becom ing more and more definite every day. Several movements are now on foot which will bring hundreds of thou sands of homeseekers Into -various Northwestern states. Wyoming is receiving her full share of this colonization. The Homestead Irrigation company of Saratoga is making a special effort to reclaim 200, 000 acres of land in the Saratoga val ley. Fifteen hundred farmers have al ready made application for tracts of this land. 'I'he Cody-Salsbury eanal project, in Big Horn county, Wyoming, is another of the gigantic projects, in which Colonel W. F. Cody, better known as "Buffalo Bill," is interested. It contemplates taking water out of the Shoshone river near the colon's town of Cody, and carrying it fifty miles in a ditch, to cover about 245,000 acres of "Shooting the Hat "Shooting the hat" is a recognized festal occasion in New Orleans, the hat shot being straw and the time be ing the date when in general opinion summer has ended. This year an early Sunday in October was chosen as the date beyond which straw hats must no longer be worn, ample notice was given in the papers, and any straw hats worn anywhere in the city on that day were even more liable -to destruction than is tabooed headgear on the Stock Exchange. Resistance is seldom made to the despollers, and when it is police act leniently. At two or more chosen places in the city the hat is actually shot. R?ys gather Common Origin of Asitvn and American Natives tions among the Eskimos on the American side of Behring strait that at their formal dances and' festivals they invariably fastened the tail of a wolf or dog at the base of the spine as If it grew there. This practice doubt less was witnessed by the Chnkchis and led to their belief that the people across the strait had tails. This evi dence that the northern aborigines really crossed Behring strait from one continent to the other long ago in creased the probability of the theory that this continent was peopled by im migration from Asia, and the evidence gathered since Popoff's time has only served to confirm this theory. New York Sun. A Heaevolent Despot. Mr. Blaine used to say that the best government on earth was an absolute despotism with a wise and benevolent despot, and at present Russia probably approaches that ideal nearer than any other government yet organized by man. The older school of statesmen say that the czar means well, but is vision ary and impractical. This may be true in a measure, but it is nevertheless a fact that Russia, for the first time In history, has a ruler who considers the welfare of his subjects only. Alexander II. was called the "Good Czar" and did a great deal for his people, but Nicho las II. Is a better Czar, because he has a widr knowledge of other nations, he sympathizes more closely with the spirit of progress, has broader views of his own duty and more confidence In the good will of the common people and their capacity for self-government. His aspirations are pure and patri otic. He makes mistakes, but, as Jef ferson said of Washington, "even his errors are amiable." TJtiea Globe. chisel successfully. Miss Rigg I no ordinary carver of marble. Her tie signs are original and beautiful and bespeak thought and knowledge. She has, alone, filled many large orders and carved elaborate designs on huge monuments of marble and granite, and she also draws designs for other carvers in and out of town. Miss- Rigg takes a keen delight in ner work and is ever ready with suggestions- to an undecided customer. If left to her own devices she in variably shows' an- artistic skill and a sound judgment which pleases.. She has raised the work of a tomb stone engraver to a place among, the fine- arts and has shown men many years older and more experienced in the work than herself the possibilities in the art hitherto undreamed: of by them. Miss Rfgg has been brought up- in an atmosphere of marble and granite, so. to- speak. Her father has for many years been an engraver and his daughter- has. spent most of her life at his place of business running about among the tombstones and learning to cut letters in marble. As she was the eldest of a large fam ily;, in which there is only one boy, the bahy, her father determined to teach her the art of stone carving. Imxnerrstt Tract of L.rv-ivd for- Colony.
