So one morning the la dies determined to instruct him. Pro viding him with a tray,' Miss Ander son went out and rang the bell, was shown Into the parlor and waited while the Chinaman carried her card to Mrs. Anderson.

"Come, child," she Eald, gently. The professional tone had left her vole utterly; the girl felt a sudden rush of tears that burned her eyelids. They were tte first she bud shed in her life as she remembered. "It's a dreary night," the nurs said, cheerfully, faking no spcc.'al notice of the girl apparently.

This did not escape the watchful eyes of the nurse. There was little that did escape her watch ful eyes, "Dora's father did not know whether or not his brother was living," she went on. "That the letter had been returned uncalled for, went to prove that he might be dead; but he knew that his brother bad no friends out side of the settlement and was not In the habit of receiving letters.

Have you never thought of this uncle of your of whom you have never heard or seen, or wondered that be never came, or let your father know he was living?" Dolores' voice was unmoved, her eyes still gravely' questioning. "Yes,", she replied, "I think If he Is living be Is happy In his life, and prefers to leave us out." The nurse made a quick movement as of Indignation. When she spoke, however,- her voice .. was gentle, as usual. "Your father is not like hia brother, Dolores.

This last re ward has seldom been paid, since Italian brigands are not accustomed to betray each other. ' ' -. High Living Under Charle II.

A recent issue ot the Shelbyvllle, Illinois, Democrat contains a long and interesting letter from Mr. Ella Koit, formerly ft prosperous farmer of that state, who recently emigrated to West ern Canada, taking np a claim tor himself and for each ot his three son. From Mr. Host's letter, which was written Feb. 3, 1904, we publish the following believing It will prove ot great Interest to those who have con templated . settling in the. Canadian Northwest; , , , , , "I had in August, 1902," secured a claim for myself, anil died- on three quarter; sections for my sons. , My claim la one-half , mile south of th Edmonton and Cake St. Anne trail. "Coming so late In the seaeon we had little opportunity to break and to prepare ground for a Arst year's crop, still we raised over 100 bushels of very Ane potatoes, and sowed ft few acres of barley, but the season was too far advanced for the barley. How ever, we secured T good feed from It, and on rented ground 18 miles east of us, raised a Ane crop of oats, so that w will hav plenty of feed for horses. We cut about 60 tons of hay and thus will have an abundance. We haves 11 told, about 240 acres of hay meadow, which woulij yield, the past year over three tons to the. acre, and In aa or dinary season the meadow wonl4 tur nish 600 ton of hay,', The. grass li raunulsiypusiod, , cattle on,, the ranges, become .y'ery fat without be ing fed A' pound W grain.'1, '""" 'I "On Jt upland the tj.-ass grow from eight to teajnehes talL , Th Is called range grass, and Is suitable for stock at any time, even In the whiter when the ground Is not covered too deep with snow. , Horses subsist on it alone, at all times, provided they are native stock. ,The grass In the' hay meadows 'here Is called red-top,' and grows from Ave to six feet In length, nd when cut .at the proper tlm yields an abundant crop of nutritious bay. ' , ' "Our .cattle have not cost us a cent since we came on our homestead, only the small outlay for salt and labor In putting up hay and shelter, All cattle have been doing well this winter, and feeding np to the first of January was unnecessary, as there was eood range up to that time 11 "All the snow's, up to that date were followed by - winds from tha' north west that melts It very rapidly: these winds are called Chinook winds, and are always warm.. In one ' night ft Chinook wind may take away three or four inches of snow. , "We have built on .our claim a com fortablo house of hewn logs.' 20x26 feet, one and one-half stories In height, with s good cellar. Dmiug th latter part of June we, rafted logs down the Sturgeon to a sawmill, about eight miles away, and thus secured 5,000 feet of good lumber which was needed for the house. Later In the season a shingle mill located six miles away. To this we hauled logs and had shingles cut for the roof. "We had an abundance of wild fruit the past season, consisting of goose berries, strawberrlos, ruspberries, eye- berries, blueberries, cherries and as- katoons. The latter are Ane looking berry, red,; and quite pleasant to the taste, but not much to be desired In rookery. The strawberries are the same as those that grow wild ha Illi nois. , Raspberries are red in color, large and .equal , to any of the tame varieties, and so are the gooseberries. The cranberries consist of the high and trailing varieties. . The latter re most, sought and contiguous to th swamps. The ground Is literally cov ered with them as with a red carpet but the best and most sought Is the blueberry, so called by the Indians. This is the famous 'huckleberry' (whortleberry) ,of the Blue Rldf Mountains In Pennsylvania, and can not be excelled for excellence by any fruit cultivated. It Is found here both on the prairie and in the timber la Im mense quantities. Game Is very plentiful, so. far a prairie chickens, pheasants, duck of 11 kinds, and geese are concerned. We have taken nearly 500 chicken ana pheasants, also ' a- 'great many ducks.,. . ,.
