It in possible a new ^Ajtfore interesting aeries Up to a few years ago there had i been no important improvement ir|' the methods of curing, blending and ripening tobacco since the days of Sir Waiter Raleigh. Cigar-makers continued to roll cigars in che same old haphazard way from leaf obtained at different times, from different sources, in dif ferent grades. Of these grades they made a mixture iiSd called it a "Blend." Tobacco ^continued to be cured after the fashion learned from the Indians, the time given to the process of ripening and maturing often de pending upon the demand for the leaf or for the finished cigars. There was not, and could not be, such a thing as standard quality. The cigar-maker never could be certain that his product would "run even." There might be—and often Was—a great difference between two Cigars out of the same box—how much Jg#re ^nation between the products of two different seasons I IN THE NEW OFFICES.

Work was begun yesterday on the paving of Broadway north of the Great Northern tracks. It is planned to keep a crew of men steadily at work on this job and Contractor Ken nedy expects to have it completed within tjie next six weeks. It will be possible to make much more rapid, progress on this work than was made on the paving of lower. Broadway as the traffic is not so heavy and the street car line covers only one block of this section of the street. Then, too, the street is not so wide as low er Broadway and better weather is ex pected during the fall months than was experienced during the early part of the summer.

D. Points Discussed i— Minneapolis Journal: With an ejjp^ •propriation of $6,500,000 for next year's work and a decision to build 200 miles of new road, the Soo line has outlined an extensive campaign for territory conquest in the northwest for 1907. The Soo undoubtedly will soon build, tlb connect its Wisconsin line with Du luth. Whether the Soo will ever build from Thief River Falls to Duluth is a question, but it has a definite plan to secure head of the lakes terminals. Another line which the people expect th? Soo to build is from Valley City on the main line to .Grand Forks, cross ing Barnes, Steele and Grand Porks counties. Valley City is already much, excited over the prospect. Continuations Of the Ambrose, Plaza and Pollock lines are also logical, each one reaching the rich country and sure to become valuable feeders to the main lines, reaching out to the great w%st. Development, Not War. Inasmuch as the Soo, through "Cana dian Pacific connections, is the one ag gressive western line which has a coast line, Its energies can be spent in developing the contiguous territory in stead of taking part in the battle for traffic from the great west. Another of the Soo schemes, which is probably farther away from con summation, is a line to run between the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern tracks from Glen wood, north ward to the international border, thus reaching Fargo and Moorhead. time as did that of the downtown sec tion'of the street. i s'• Dr*f« CarcM.

It is generally known thdt Che Great Northern and that the chief opposition will be from the Great Northern and that the Soo's chief aim will be to secure a hold on anything that might become Great Northern territory which has any rev enue in sight, or in promise.

Marriage.fetes in Finland, as In Nor way, are often prolonged for several days, even among folk of humble rank. One peculiarity, which may excite more surprise than approval amflug eligible suitors in our own country, ts that the Finnish lover never himself u'pops tho question" to tbe girl of his choice. The momentous proposal Is made through a third person, called the "taJman," to whom the happy couple give a present •when his delicate mediation pBoves sue cessful and ends in a wedding. Not un commonly theitr gift to the talman takes the unromantic form of a shirt.. In iike ma inner the clergyman who presides over the nuptial service re ceives a simple and inexpensive pres ent, often a haai&kerchief and a pair of •warm hair gloves. A similar gift is be «towed upon the officiating priest at Jfunerals.
