WHAT A LEADING AGRICULTUR
IST SAYS OF WESTERN CANADA. Prof. Thomai Shaw of Minnesota Uni ▼ermity Give* an l.'nt'ia*ed Op nion. In a let'er to “The Farmer." St. Paul, dated Sept. 1. 1901. I'rof. Thomas Shaw of the Minnesota State University has the following to say, after having made a trip through Western Canada: "The capabilities of the immense area known as Western Canada are but lit tle understood on this side of the line. Our people are apt to look upon it as a region of frost and snow, a country in which but a small portion of the land relatively will ever be tillable be cause of the rigors of the climate. True, the climate is cold in winter, but West ern Canada lias, nevertheless, just that aort of climate which makes it the most reliable wheat producing country in all the continent. An Immense Area. Western Canada is not only an Im mense area, but the same description will apply to those [Kirtions of the country that are capable of being suc cessfully t'lled or grazed. Nearly ail of the prairie Province of Manitoba can be brought uuder cultivation, although probably not oue-third of its surface has been laid open by the plough. As siniboia to the west is a grain and stock <-ountry. Saskatchewan to the north of Assluiboia has high adaptation for the same. This also may be said of Alberta to the west. Here lies wliat may be termed a grain growing and stock producing empire, the resources of which have been hot little drawn npon comparatively, viewed from the standpoint of the agriculturist. When !t is called to mind that even in the Peace river country in Athabasca, and several hundreds of miles north of the Canadian lioundary. wheat was grown which won a premium at the World's Fair in 1893, the capabilities of this country in wheat production loom up more brightly tliau even the brilliant Northern Lights of the land that lies toward the pole. Adapted to Stock and Grain Prod action. The region under consideration Is, however, mainly adapted to growing grain and grazing stock. Much of it Is adapted to growing both grain and atock, but certain areas, especially to wards the mountains, are only adapted to ranching, except where irrigation will yet be Introduced. This, of course. c.u be done successfully along the many streams that llow down from the Roc-kies and water the country to wards tile east and north. The adapta tion of the country for wheat produc tion is of a high character. The cool nights that usually characterize the ripening season are eminently favora ble to the tilling of the grain, and to the securing of a plump berry, and con sequently large yields. The crop this year is a magnificent one. In Mani toba and the territories it should cer tainly give an average of more than twenty bushels per acre. But should the yield he not more tbau twenty bushels, the crop will he a most hand some one, owing to the large area sown to wheat. Many farmers only grow grain. But those who do succeed as well in growing oats and barley as in growing wheat, hence these foods for stock should always he abundant. Some grow cattle mainly and others combine the two. The last named, of course, is doubtless the safest of tlie three during a long course of years; that is tc say, where such farming is practicable. Quality of the Live Stock. It was a pleasurable surprise to note the high quality of the stock. The average of quality in cattle is higher than tlie average of cattle in our Stare, unless in the dairy classes. This opin ion is not reached rashly or without ample opportunity for investigation. I spent three long days in the show ring at Winnipeg making the awards in the j beef classes. I question if any of our States, single handed, could make sucli a showing in cat Me. It was my privi lege to make the awards at several shows, and at all of them were evi dences that much attention is given to the improvement of the stock. I noted carefully the character of the herds that grazed along the railroad and ev erywhere the high average of the qual ity of the stock was iu evidence, Keasim for Quality in Stock. The quality of the grass is good. Many of tlu* settlers came from Onta rio and had been schooled as to the value of good stock before going west. The railfoads and the government have taken a deep interest in making it less difficult and costly to the farmers to secure good males. Those who are anxious of changing their residence should hear in mind that the lands in Western Cauada are many of them free and others reason ably cheap. Information will gladly be given by any agent of the Canadian government, whose advertisement appears else where. The Kusiest Way. Husband What are you doing in my pockets? Haven’t you any money?

The following is a most interesting and. in one reaped, pathetic tale: Mr. J. Pope, 42 Ferrar Hoad, Strcat ham. said: "Y’es. poor chap, he is gone, (lead — horse bolted, thrown off his seat on his eab he was driving and killed—poor chap, and a good sort, too, mate. I: was him. you see, who gave me the half-bottle of St. Jacobs Oil that made anew man of me. ’Twas like this: me and Bowman were great friends. Some gentleman had given him a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil which had done him a lot of good; ho only used half the bottle, and remember ing that I had been a martyr to rheuma tism and sciatica for years, that I had literally tried everything, had doctors, and all without lienetit, I became dis couraged and looked upon it that there was no help for me. Well,” said Pope, “you may not believe me, for it is a mira cle. hut before I had used the contents of the half-bottle of St. Jacobs Oil which poor Bowman gave me, I was a well man. There it is, you see, after years of pain, after using remedies, oils, embro cations, horse liniments, and spent nioney on doctors without getting any better, I was completely cured in a few days. I bought another bottle, thinking the pain might come back, but; it did not, so I gave the bottle away to a friend who had a lame back. I can’t speak too high ly of this wonderful pain-killer.” • Badly Illustrated. Ho was giving the young man some good advice as they hung on two straps in the trolley car aud rode down town together. “You must plant your feet carefully,” he said, “and know just where you are going to step. l>o nothing by impulse. Be calm aud deliberate. Don’t hurry, and always he sure you are right before going ahead.” Just theu the car started with a vio lent jerk and the man of good advice lost his grip on the strap and plunged up the aisle, stumbling on half a dozen pairs of outstretched feet as he ad vanced, aud finally sitting down with a heavy thump in the middle of the aisle. —Cleveland Plain Dealer.

HIS picture of Judge Taft is said to be the best likeness of the first Ameri- II can Governor of the Philippine Islands, to whom has fallen the great task va of making order out of chaos, substituting American methods for Spanish bribery, organizing courts and municipalities, giving the right to vote to those fit for the franchise, and. generally, “creating a government from the ground up” where nothing but semi-barbaric ideas of government have prevailed. Judge Taft is from Ohio, is a graduate of Y’ale, and is a son of Alphonso Taft, Secre tary of War and Attorney General under President Grant. He was judge of the United States Court of Appeals when appointed chairman of the Philippine Commission, from which he stepped into the governorship when that office was created. WIFE CHARGED WITH MURDEK. The Deserted Hniband Is One of Her Main Prosecutors. The crime of having murdered her own child has been charged against Mrs. Eliz abeth Howe Dale of Hoboken, N. J., a woman of good connections, of former good reputation, but for the past two years living separated from her husband, Harvey S. Dale, an insurance man of Chicago. Unfortunately Mrs. Dale form ed an attachment for another man, El bert Waller, a German, whom she met in Europe, and to this is due her condi tion, with her husband pressing against her the charge of murder. Some seven years ago Harvey S. Dale and Elizabeth Howe were married in New Y’ork. Their relations were happy and harmonious until a little over two tears ago, when Mrs. Dale began an in- wFs' \ MRS ELIZABETH lIOWE DALE. timacy with Waller. Husband and wife separated and by* agreement tile father obtained the custody of their child. Erne line, then 3 years old. He placed her with his family physician, Dr. Stubbs, meantime awaiting the expiration of two years to begin suit for divorce, being averse to institute proceedings for any other cause than that of desertion. A short while ago Mr. Dale allowed -Mrs. Dale to take Emeline to her home, where also Waller lived. Then he returned to Chicago. Emiline was not returned to her guardian and afterward Mrs. Dale and Waller, with Emeline, left the Bel den avenue house, saying they were going to Philadelphia. They put up at a Ho boken hotel, however, and shortly after a doctor was summoned to their apart- | meats to attend Emeline.. lie adminis tered medicine and left her apparently in good condition. Early Tuesday morning lie was summoned again. He found Eme line dead. The circumstances surrounding the child's death aroused the suspicions of some of Mr. Dale’s relatives and when these spoke to Mrs. Dale of the matter she said that the child had died through the mistake of having oaten strychnine tablets for candy. Whereupon the au thorities, upon the representations of the husband, took charge of the ease. Mrs. Dale was arraigned cu the charge of murder and utterly collapsed, though she maintains her innocence. W hen she learned of the charge hanging over her head she telegraphed lier husband to come to her. little dreaming that he was the prime mover in her prosecution and that upon him the police rely to establish a motive for the alleged crime.
