WESTERN CANADA The man from Iowa began to talX la nd before the train was well out of j the C. N. R. depot in Winnipeg. The talk began in rather wide circles. The rush to the land, the bumper crop, the system of summer fallowing pursued in the semi-arid districts, were all discussed, and then, with a sort of apologetic smile, the Iowa man said: "I'm a bit interested in this country myself. Some of the men down home got a few sections up here along this line, and I'm going to have a look at them. Never been up in Canada be fore"— (it is curious how these mid western Americans pronounce the name of the Dominion as if it was "Can'dy")—"but if it looks good wo will be up to stay next fall." "You see, it's like this," said the man from Iowa—quite manifestly con tinuing an argument that had been go ing on in his mind for some time. "Back in our State land has become dear. Anybody wanting to sell can get $70 or $80 an acre for it, and every farm that's offered is snapped up. In Saskatchewan we have just as good land that cost us $11 and $12, so that a man can take up five or six times as much there as in Iowa on the same investment of money. "It isn't the money, though, that brings most of us up from Iowa. I'm not sure that money would be enough. The 'invasion' is a family affair. We have no chance of keeping our sons around us back home. They have to leave the farm and go into the big cities of the neighboring States to get work. in touch and make little colonies with the chil dren around us, on homesteads or To keep them on the farm and h with us, we come up here us, on bought land. This makes it easier for the farmers back there in Iowa to get 1 land for the stay-at-homes. The fam- [ ilies that come to Canada are kept j together and the families that buy ' the farms they leave are kept to- ! gether, too. There won't be any slack ening of the rush, either, for they still raise big families back in Iowa." One could almost see the mental ! process of this typical American farm er in defending a step that meant a new flag, a new allegiance, a new land, and new associates. To aban don Old Glory of the Declaration of Independence for a good thing in cheap land would hardly be playing the game, but to go out into Sas katchewan to "keep the family togeth er," was another and a quite higher motive. Why seek too closely to analyze the reasons for the greatest land trek in the history of America? It is enough to know that the sons of the frontiers men of Iowa, and Kansas, and Minne sota—the best blood of the mid-west— 1 are pouring into the Canadian west in an ever-increasing stream, and are learning that "God Save the King" and "My Country 'Tis of Thee," are sung to the same tune.—Toronto (Ontario) Globe. j j j 1 I AND SHE'S NOT THE FIRST.

News of Montana UNIONS FORCE EXTRA SESSION. ; Montana Legislature Reconsiders In diana Stone. Helena—The Montana legislature Is ifi extraordinary session to consider :he character of the materials to be used in the new wings to the capitol authorized at the last session at a •:ost of $500,000. Because of the high price of Mon tana slone the board of examiners authorized the use of Bedford (Ind.) stone, and the contract was made on Lliat basis. Montana residents protested against the use of foreign stone. But t Iiis came to naught until the labor unions discovered there was a strike at Bed ford, and then the pressure for an ex tra session to make an appropriation so that Montana stone could be used became irresistible, and was called by I the governor. i It now develops that the firm with j which the contract was made has never had any trouble with the unions. But in the meantime demands have been made for the use of other Mon tana products and these will be con sidered by the legislature. Indiana outbid Montana by $58,000 on the stone. The legislators are serv« ing gratis during the extra session. [ j ' ! ! Regulation of Saloons Urged.

Bloomer of Yale uni ! versity, acting as spokesman for an ! anonymous giver, has announced that a prize of $100,000 has been set aside, to be awarded to the first person any where in the world who discovers a i cure for tuberculosis. The gift is un conditional as to time, place, or kind I of cure, the only real condition being | ] that the new cure must have been in j ! constant use at least five years, and : j that the promoter of the cure con- j ! vince the investigating board of the merits of his discovery. A large number of physicians have I been working for years to perfect vac ! cine, or anti-toxin for tuberculosis, or to find some agent, such as tuberculin, which will assist in the cure of the dis ease. Thus far, the experiments have not furnished a product which will j either absolutely cure or prevent con- j sumption, or render the patient im- I mune against the disease. Many of j these serums have proved effective in j increasing the resistance of the pa- ' tient and thus helping in the cure, but j no scientist of repute to-day claims to have discovered a tuberculin which j will produce a cure without the com- j bined aid of fresh air, rest and whole- i some food. i Where Are Harry and Isabella Allen?
