CLIMATE IS IDEAL
CREAT WEALTH ACQUIRED
Writing from Saskatoon, Saskatche
wan, Canada, W. H. Ellwanger, who
was formerly a resident of Green
Mountain, Iowa, says: "The climate
in summer is ideal for growing grain.
Long, clear days of sunshine, no bad
storms. We never need to guard
against cyclones; I never saw a better
climate in my life. We made more
money during the season of 1906 than
any previous five years in central
Iowa—one of the best districts iu the
state." But Mr. Ell Tanger was a resi
dent of the town, and it might be more
interesting to read what a farmer has
to say about Western Canada. From
hundreds of letters all filled with
words of praise, recounting success in
Western Canada there has been one
selected. It is as follows:
Paynton, Sask., Canada,
Dec. 10th, 1907.
To Whom This May Concern:
I moved to this address February 3
1907, from Montgomery, Iowa, ar«l
took a homestead 33 miles north of
Paynton. It was cold when I moved
here but it did not stay cold long; it
broke up the 8th of February, and was
not so cold after that but the spring
was late on account of the heavy snow
fall, but in spite of the late spring I
saw better grain than I ever saw in
the states, raised this year. I helped
a man finish sowing oats the 4th of
July and they made fair oats. In a
good year oats will go 100 bushels to
tke acre and wheat 25 to 50: all root
crops do well here. I saw turnips weigh
7 and S pounds. I raised potatoes this
year that measured IIV 2 inches
one way and 1814 the other in cir
cumference. This is a fine stock coun
try; hay in abundance, good water
plenty of fuel, free and plenty of
building material—the government
gives us timber to saw into lumber
and we can get it sawed for about
$0.00 per thousand. All small fruit
grows wild here, then there are ducks,
goeso. grouse, pheasants, deer, moose,
elk and fish in abundance. I v. as over
to Turtle Lake yesterday where there
is lots of fishing being done this win
ter. I saw about a carload of white
fish in one pile. 1 gave 23 cents for
SO pounds of fish. What do you think
of that, Brother Yankee? I think this
is a fine place both to make money
and to live. There was an old man up
here visiting his brother-in-law. Now
this man owns land close to Des
Moines, Iowa, and is in good circum
stances, but. ho took a homestead and
says he will ho contented if he can
only put iu the rest of his days
Canada. He would get up in the morn
ami look out of the door and say
"Well, who wouldn't live in Canada?"
Now l have been in 13 different states
In the United States, and I never saw
the chance that there is here for
man that lias a little muscle and a
little brains. Three cheers for Cana
W. A. SPICE."

SECOND BETSY ROSS
WOMAN WHO MAKES FLAGS FOR
Miss Mary Woods, with Her Assist
ants, Turned Out 7,000 Last Ysar
Which Cost an Average of
Ten Dollar* Apiece.
New York.—It was considered a
wonderful achievement when patriotic
Betsy Ross made the first flag for
Uncle Sam. Ever since she has beeu
lorified in story and song, and there
is not a school child In the land who
has not heard her name. In fact, there
are still to be seen old-fashioned lith
ograph pictures of the prim, quaint
little woman sitting on her back
piazza working on the stars and
But there is a second Betsy Ross
among us who deserves a great deal
of credit, for where the former turned
out one flag our modern Betsy turns
The average visitor to the Brooklyn
navy yard has no idea of what goes
on within those grim military walls.
Neither does he know that up on the
third floor of the equipment depart
ment is our Betsy Ross No. 2,
whose real name is Miss Mary A.
It is 28 years since Miss Woods en
tered the employ of the equipment
department at the navy yard. A1
that time she was turning out filmy
gowns and beautiful costumes for the
fair ladies of Brooklyn, when she sud
denly decided to make flags for Uncle
Sam instead. Accordingly, she pre
sented herself at the navy yard with
the proper credentials and Impressed
the officials so agreeably that an arm
fill of piece work was given to her to
lake home, as was the custom in
those days. Soon thereafter she was
made "quarterwomau" of the flag
room in the equipment department,
where she has been for more than a
quarter of a century.
When Miss Woods first became
'quarterwoman" — forewoman we
would say in civil parlance—she bad
only six assistants. To-day she lias
under her 32 women and three men,
who last year turned out 700 flags
under her direction. Of these 1,580
were American, 500 were foreign en
signs, and the rest, were signal flags.
Miss Woods lias made and handled
more flags than any other woman in
JZT$SJ£l£Y : A -WOODS
the world, and 90 per cent, of all the
work done at the equipment depart
ment is cut by her, as she is a past
mistress in the art of cutting.
When Miss Woods has cut her bunt
ing emblems they are turned over to
their respective workers, who do
nothing but that particular thing 313
days in the year.
There are eight hand workers who
baste, embroider and do the fancy
stitches required by our fastidious 1
Uncle Sam and foreign despots, j
These women receive from $1.52, i
fourth-class work, to $2.24 a day, first- i
class work, for the pay in the navy is j
always by the multiple of eight. Many 1
middle-aged women find employment |
In this department, and in eight years !
not one has bc-en discharged for lack j
Miss Woods herself has taught her j
assistants all that they know of flag 1
Miss W^ods loves the beautiful,
soft, all-wool bunting, and takes great
pride In displaying it even before it
is transformed into a flag. The vel
vets, laces, silks and satins of her
dressmaking days seem frivolous
compared with the fast colored bunt
ings, the choicest output of the Lowell
"Last year," said she, "we use.i
140,000 yards. Can you imagine it?
And ten years ago we used only 10,000
yards It cost Uncle Sam last year
to run this room alone $70,000. Of
this amount $50,000 was used for ma
terials and $20,000 for labor."
"No, the work is never monotonous.'
says Miss Woods, "for there is some
thing new to learn each day. For in
stance, just before the fleet started foi
the Pacific the signals were changed
and all the flags had to be altered ac
cordingly. Then you see there are a
great variety of flags—108 in all and
43 foreign ones. So how can the
work be monotonous?
'And what is the most intricate flag
to make? By all odds the San Salva
dor, because it is more concentrated.
And the only flag on which the front ia
not the same as the back is the Para
guay, which has a lion on the front
and a red five-pointed star on the
back. There is more cutting, though,
on a No. 10 30-inch ensign than on ?
Nci 1 ensign 36 feet long."
HOW TO KNOW PURE PAINT.
A Way in Which It May Be Identifia*
After a building has been painted
long enough for a weather test, it is
easy to tell if the paint used was made
of pure White Lead cr not. But such
belated knowledge comes like locking
the barn after the colt is stolen.
What one wants is a test that will
tell the quality of the paint before it
and the labor of putting it on are
Nature lias provided a way In which
genuine White Lead may bo positive
ly distinguished from adulterated or
fake White Lead before you spend a
cent on your painting.
Pure White Lead is made from me
tallic lead, and, under Intense heat,
such as is produced by a blow-pipe,
pure White Lead will resolve itself back
Into metallic lead. If, however, it Is
•tot genuine White Lead, or if it con
tains the slightest trace of adultera
tion, the change will not take place.
Therefore the "blow-pipe" test Is an
absolute and final one.
The National Lead Company are
urging everyone interested In painting
to make this test of paint before using
It, and they guarantee that the pure
White Lead sold under their "Dutch
Boy Painter" trade-mark will always
prove absolutely pure under the "blow
pipe" or any other test. To make It
easy for you to perform the experi
ment they will send you free upon re
quest a blow pipe and everything nec
essary for you to make the test, to
gether with a valuable booklet on 1
paint. Address. National Load Com
