WESTEN CANADA AS
A GRAIN PRODUCER NEVER SAW SUCH FINE WHEAT ANYWHERE. Gust. Anderson of Maidstone, Sask, was formerly of Minnesota and has !>eun in Central Canada three years. On January 16, 1910, he writes: "Arriving fifteen miles from Maid stone, I bought a couple of steers from a rancher, as my capital was not large, and with the two oxen I brought with me, I broke 25 acres which I put in crop in 1908 and had to clear some brush. I earned $45.00 by breaking fifteen acres for a neighbor and dur ing the summer I put up hay and hauled timber and put up houses for other settlers. Notwithstanding a heavy frost on August 12th, I had 22% bushels of wheat per acre and 60 bushels of oats. Off 35 acres of wheat in 1909, I got 27 bushels of wheat per acre and 1,300 bushels of oats off 20 acres. I never saw such fine wheat anywhere. We have plenty of rain between May and August and after August seldom any but dry warm days. Water can be had at from 20 to -10 feet and plenty of grass for cat tle." The evidence of Mr. Anderson is given because it is encouraging to the man of small means who is desirous of bettering his condition. It shows what can be done, and there is really but small limit to the man with push and energy to become wealthy on Canadian lands. And the grain that be raises Is good. A press dispatch says: The quality of the wheat continues to be the feature of the deliveries. In the total of 3,378 cars in the February inspections there were 2,847 of high grade stuff, a percentage of 84.28. For January the percentage was 82.21, and for the six months it was 88.6. This is an unusually high average, and it demonstrates beyond the shadow of a doubt that the farmers in this part ■of the Dominion still know how to grow first-class wheat. The crop of 190S was considered good enough, and its average of contract wheat was only 70 per cent. Good weather throughout the season was an impor tant factor, of course, in insuring the high quality of the grain, and it is not likely that atmospheric influences of so favorable a character will be en countered for a long time to come. The best that can be expected is that a. fair average for a term of years will be maintained. Good Illustration. Mrs. Bridgewhist—What is the sub ject of Mrs. Suffragette's lecture this afternoon?

REPUBLIC TIRES MOST FOR THE MONEY ' WHITE ST^PALI RUBBER CO. eV:, 1 Thompson's Eys Wator MANYMISSIONARIESTALK LAYMEN'S CONVENTION CLOSES WITH ENTHUSIASM. Final Appeal Made and Missionary Workers Have Departed for Other Fields—Pays Fargo Tribute. Fargo, April 22.—The Farewells were said last night at the Laymen's Mis sionary Movement contention which for two days has engrossed the attention of the male religious workers of the state of North Dakota and the western part of Minnesota. Last night's meeting in the Masonic temple was one of the most enthusiastic of the series and there was a large attendance. There was the usual devotional exercises which were greatly enjoyed by the au dience. Reports were read from each of the city churches showing that each con gregation had decided to raise a much larger fund to carry on the missionary work in foreign fields than ever before. The subject of the address of George Heber Jones, the missionary from Korea, whose addresses throughout the week had rendered so much en tertainment and institution was The Call of the East to the West. The next and last speaker of the evening was Willis R. Hotchkiss, whose subject was Lord, What Wilt Thou Have Me to Do. He made an earnest plea that the good work and enthusiasm that this convention had inaugurated might not die, but be the means of bringing forth great re sults. He con%ratulated Fargo on the great convention it had, one the way in which it was managed and on the ef forts all classes of people had made for its success. He hoped that from this convention the missionary move ment everywhere would feel good re sults. "I have attended about sixty of these conventions." said Dr. Trimble, field secretary of the Laymen's Missionary movement, who has had charge of the convention here, at the closing session last night, "and I want to say that this is the first time that the money for all the expenses of the convention has been raised before the end of the meeting. "I wish to say further that the daily attendance at the meetings here has been equal to and even surpassed the attendance in cities with 50,000, 100, 000 and even 200,000 population.

News of Montana HORSETHIEF FORGIVES SLAYER. Billings Deputy Sheriff Wings Un known Man. Billings.—"I would like to shake the hand of the man who shot me," said an unknown man accused of horse stealing, as he lay in the hospital here "And the only regret I have is that the bullet did not hit higher up."

He continued to run, with the officers in pursuit, and Dep uty Williamson fired striking the man In the small of the back, the bullet coming out at the groin. The wounded man was taken to the hospital, and said he w r ould not give l'-'S name, as he w r as of good family and did not want his relatives to hear nf the affair. 11 is believed in addition to being a horsethief he is also a deserter from the army. His recovery is doubtful. PRAIRIE FIRES IN MONTANA. Flames Leap Guards and Do Much Damage to Ranchers' Property. Glendive.—Due to the unusually early warm weather of the past few weeks and the unusually heavy growth of grass last season, prairie fires are quite numerous in Dawson county. One bad fire is reported from Bella Prairie country about fourteen miles northeast of Glendive where the flames started in the grass and swept over a wide stretch of country, cross ing the hills toward the Yellowstone river and burning down to Harpster's pasture land on the river fiats. It is reported that flames in places jumped over fire guards consisting of four or five plowed furrows, which would usually be sufficient to check their destructive progress. The Benning place ov'ned by a one armed rancher whose wife is a well known rider in county relay races, is reported to have suffered the most, be ing almost entirely burned over. What destruction to buildings resulted is unknown. Other portions of Dawson county have recently been similarly visited and there are reports of bad fires in North Dakota. DISCREDITS MT. McKINLEY CLAIM. Barrill Does Not Believe Fairbanks Party Reached Top. Hamilton. — Edward Barrill, the guide accompanying Cook on his Mount McKinley trip and who made an affidavit during the Polar contro versy, that the doctor had never reach ed the top of the peak, says that in his opinion the Fairbanks party head ed by Thomas Lloyd, never reached the summit either.

He also declares it is impossible to reach the summit over any other route than the one selected by himself and Dr. Cook. Gets Big Judgment. Boston, Mass.—T. M.

Sfof>/ llhwm, (toAtSWidefc This Fact — that in addressing Mrs. Pinkham you are con fiding your private ills to a woman—a woman whose ex perience with women's diseases covers twenty-five years. The present Mrs. Pinkham, daughter-in-law of Lydia E. Pinkham, was for years under her direction, and has ever since her decease continued to advise women. Many women suffer in silence and drift along from bad to worse, knowing well that they ought to have immediate assistance, but a natural modesty causes them to shrink from exposing themselves to the questions and probable examinations of even their family physician. Such ques tioning and examination is unnecessary. Without cost you can consult a woman whose knowledge from actual experience is great. MRS. PINKHAM'S STANDING INVITATION: Women suffering from any form of female weakness are in vited to promptly communicate with Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass. All letters are received, opened, read and answered by women. A woman can freely talk of her private illness to a woman; thus has been established this confidence between Mrs. Pinkham and the women of America which has never betn broken. Never has she published a testi monial or used a letter without the written consent of the writer, and never has the company allowed these confi dential letters to get out of their possession, as the hun dreds of thousands of them in their files will attest. Out of the vast volume of experience which Mrs. Pink ham has to draw from, it is more than possible that she has gained the very knowledge needed in your case. She asks nothing in return except your good will, and her advice has helped thousands. Surely any woman, rich or poor, should be glad to take advantage of this generous: offer of assistance.
