He sized them up. trotted around the corner, and presently came back with one of the neighbors plumpest yellow-legged chickens In his mouth, which he sol emnly deposited near the door, and then resumed his nap. How's that for dogologj', anyway?" PRODUCTIVE POWER OF WESTERN CANADA SOIL Winnipeg Correspondence. There has never been any who have doubted the productiveness of the soil of Western Canada, but there are sometimes found those who question the fact, of Its superiority. During the past season It has been shown that In grain raising qualities it possessed the very best The late spring pre vented grain being sown In many cases before the middle of May. Yet a large percentage of that sown at that time produced excellent yields. Had it not been for the frost early In August which visited most of tbe north halt of the continent there would have been a magnificent yield In every dis trict In Western Canada. Throughout the Southern Alberta district where about 100,000 acres was sown to win ter wheat the yield will be enormously large. There are vast tracts of valu able grain growing land In Western Canada that are available for home steads, the Canadian Government giv ing 160 acres free, and entry may be made by proxy, by any near relative, thus saving considerable cost to the American who may have entry made in this way. Any Canadian Govern ment Agent will give you the partic ulars.

We never got half as many flowers on it in Minneapolis, even during Septem ber and October, although we had more time to attend to It there."' I mention this only as an example or the great productive power of the soli here in Saskatchewan, Canada. EQUAL TO THE OCCASION. This Servant Girl Was Evidently a Person of Resource. As a source of humor the Irish ser vant girl has long since fallen from her high estate, a result probably due to the better class of young women from the Emerald Isle who come here annually to help confuse the eternal "servant girl question." But now and again one of the old, naively Ignorant sort turns up In a New York house hold, as was demonstrated the other day to a caller at a house -on the West Side. The girl who responded to the bell was asked If her mistress was at home. To this Inquiry she surprised the caller by putting her arms behind her back and replying in a rich brogue, as she thrust her face toward tbe caller: "Put th' tickets in me mouth, ma'am, an I'll go an' see.
