The girl looked at him in a dim, un
comprehending way. During the six
months that he had spent in New Mex

her father, Ralph Brunton had come to
mean everything to her.
Her indolent father, having amassed
comfortable fortune as the landlord
of the most prosperous hotel along
the coach route, had had the means

He had gone the pace too, in .his
last year. A cold, neglected, had
spread to his lungs the upshot was
that he was given the alternative be

had made the sensible choice. He

come in so quietly that Ralph had
not heard her. There was a strange
look-in her eyes. She shrank away

Baby Wreath and Pinks.
By EBEN REXFORD.
It often happens that the woman
who loves plants has no sunny win
dows in which to grow them, and, un
der the impression that-they cannot be
successfully grown without sunshine,
she does not attempt their cultivation,
thus depriving herself of a great deal
of pleasure, especially in the winter.
There is no good reason why the
lover of plants should be without their
company. In the winter, provided, of
course, that the temperature of the
rooms can be regulated to keep out
the frost and some of the plants that
can be grown In the windows that are
without sunshine are among our most
desirable ones for house culture.
First on the list I would place the
Boston fern. Nearly everyone is fa
miliar with this plant. It requires only
the ordinary attention.
Give it a soil of garden loam, with
enough coarse, sharp sand worked
Into it to make lt friable, a liberal, but
not an excessive amount of water and
a temperature varying several de
grees above the frost point, and any
one may be reasonably sure of. suc

It does not do very well, however,
In steam-heated, gas-lighted rooms. No
plants will flourish under such condi
tions, though many will live on indefi
nitely under them.
The Aspidistra is about the only
plant I would dare to recommend to
those living in rooms heated and light

along the stalks, but sometimes on the

In order to make It easy to take the
plant down for cleaning, I would ad
vise putting small screw-hooks in the
window frame to furnish support for
It rather than fastening them secure

vine over the hook and it will need no

The Whitman fern is a fitting com
panion for the Boston fern, of which it
is a sport. This variety has much
shorter fronds than the Boston fern.
They are much wider, however, and
their leaflets are subdivided in such
a manner that each becomes a minia
ture frond. The effect is light and
feathery and exceedingly graceful.
This is a most excellent plant for a
place at the sill, while the Boston vari

point of vantage Its long fronds can

their charms most effectually.
All plant lovers have a desire to

this, however, because of the delicacy

of our homes. There la Just as good
a prepared oatmeal flour which can be
used for children's gruels, for thicken

usual practice now is to boll rolled
oats and have all the unpleasantness
of straining them, etc. but this can
all be avoided by using the prepared
oatmeal flour for the purposes above
Similarly, there la a rice flour, a len
til flour, a cornmeal flour, and even
flours from dried beans and other
legumes. These are all very excellent
because they contain a high amount
of nutriment and because in this pre
pared form they are far easier to use
than the ordinary whole grain. Any
one who has ever eaten the Scotch
"pease brose" will never forget the
dellciousness that the true yellow split
pea soup can give. There are also
dishes possible from split peas and
lentils which can be much more eas

am discussing. I was interested to
learn only the other day from a well
known doctor also that there is now
a prepared flour of the Chinese soy
bean, which is also high in nutrients,
and used extensively among the Chi
nese and Japanese. This makes a
aweet flour, and is especially attrac

far too little known, which has a most
delicious flavor, and which, combined
with wheat flour, can be made into
most attractive small cakes, muffins,
Familiar are many of the Scotch
dishes, chief of which are those using
yellow peas in some form. These yel
low peas are known here in America,
and cost about eight cents a pound.
They have a. large meaty value, or
"protein." They can be made-. Into a
delicious soup by soaking them over
night, boiling until tender, straining
through a fine sieve and thickening
and flavoring as desired. Or they may
be made into a loaf by boiling the
pulp until very thick, pressing it
through a sieve and combining it with
bread crumbs sufficient to hold it to
gether. Onions, tomatoes, ham or
other tasty meat can'be added to the
peas while boiling. The crumbs and
pea soup should be well mixed, molded
Into a roll and laid on a buttered pan
and baked in an oven for about forty
minutes, basting with butter. If de
sired, a tomato sauce can be poured
over it Just before serving. Any rem

From Sedgewick, Alberta, we hear of
E. I* Deputy, for past twelve years
manager for Frye & Sons, packers,
Seattle, who during 1914 were the
largest buyers of hogs on Alberta
markets.. He is taking up active work
on his 1,200-acre farm near Sedge
wick. Although he was one of the
highest paid salaried officials on the
Pacific Coast, his frequent visits and
personal knowledge of farming condi
tions in Western Canada convinced
him there are greater opportunities In
farming Alberta land than in commer
cial life, with greater assurance ot
ultimate independence and prospects
of home-making under the moat de

the country: .''V-ft
"I came to Hardisty from Osage
City, Kansas,~nlne years ago and took
up a homestead here. This Is a good
diatrlct for the farmer who wishes to
raise grain exclusively, and as a mixed
farming country it cannot be beaten
anywhere In the world to my knowK
"I had ten cattle, which ranged out
side all last winter, and this spring
they were fat enough for the market,
this without being fed but one night
during the entire winter they ware
fine fat cattle and looked beautiful. I
raised some winter wheat here which
weighed sixty-seven and a half pounds
to the bushel, government weight, and
which I shipped to Calgary. The mil
ler who bought It said that It waa the
best wheat that had ever gone Into
Calgary. Wheat In this district yields
as high as forty bushels to the acre,
oats average sixty' bushels. Alfalfa
does well here.
"All In all I think the farmers are
very well satisfied with the country,
and the farmer who farms his land
Intelligently Is sure to make a suc
cess. The climate here Is the best I
have ever lived in, the summers ire
delightful and the winters are mild.
There has never been a blizzard dur
ing the nine years I have lived here
nor any cyclones or wind storms."
A settler In the neighborhood of
Glelchen, Alberta, spent $2,000 in Im
proving his quarter section, has 1ZS
acres ready for crop, keeps 70 head of
stock, believes In mixed farming
keeps two hired men, one all year, the
other In summer only. He milks 12
to 18 cows, and receives an average
monthly cream cheque of $110. Last
June he sold $1,200 worth of hogs and
in November two more carloads, be
sides supplying his own requirements,
and is not only making money bat
building up a good home amid dealr
able surroundings. This Is an example
of the possibilities open to the indus

$38,000,000 of American capital has

that United States financial men are
