In talking a few days ago with a
large wholesale merchant, he said,
"this country was bankrupt." I cited
him to the recent statements pub
lished by the State from bankers and
manufacturers from all parts of the
state. He said he did not care if
they did, it wa- a fact. He said he
would admit that conditions were
better in some respects. that people
were better clothed, better fed and
perhaps in some instances better
housed. but they (his firm) had more
money owing to them at this date,
than in any year since they have been
in business and that they found it
harder to collect their bills. He
said one cause was the immense;
traffic in high priced stock, (mules,
horses, etc.) increase in the quantity
of fertilizers used at an advanced
price, etc. He did not offer a solu
tion, but it seems to us, if this is the
case, it would be wise to use our old
mules another year and make as
much manure at home as possible.
This to our mind is the thing to do.
Make our own fertilizers as far as
possible and buy as %ttle as p-ssible.
We need good stock to make good
crops and do good work. What do
vou say to this Mr. E-ditor?
Through the kindness of Mr. A.
G. Wise we were given a pleasant

We believe that there is more
painting in that town than the aver

the good taste of its citizens.

Upon the face of it M. Delcasse's
triumph appears greatest in some of
the specific provisions of the treaty.
He has induced the French deputies
to approve the surrender of the
French shore of New Foundland and
to approve the British occupatior
and control of Egypt. We shall noi
