The above caption about repredtents the growth of Central Canada. The statement was made not long since by a railroad man who claimed to have made the remarkable discovery that such was the case. There is not a district of a fair amount of settle ment in any of the three Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, but has its school, and the railways have stations every seven or eight miles apart, around which group the towns, some large and some small, but each important to its own district. Schools are largely maintained by pub lic funds and the expense of tuition is but a nominal sum. The final returns of the grain pro duction for Central Canada for 1909 is now in, and the figures show that the value of the crops to the farmers of that country is about 195 million dol lars, as compared with 120 million last year. American farmers or those who have gone from the United States, will participate largely in *hese splendid returns, and these comprise those who have gone from nearly every State in the Union. One of the many proofs that might be put forward showing the immense wealth that comes to the farmers of Central Canada is seen in the sum that has been spent during the past two or three months by the farmers who have for the time being ceased worrying over the reaper and the thresher, and are taking to enjoying themselves for two or three months. It is said that fifty thousand people of these Western Provinces spent the holiday season visiting their old homes. Most of these passengers paid forty and some forty-five dollars for the round trip. Some went to Great Britain, some to the Continent, others to their old homes in Eastern Canada, and many thousands went to- visit their friends in the States. The amount paid alone in transportation would be upward of two million dollars. Some make the trip every years. It need ncrt be asked, "Can they afford it?" .With crops yielding them a profit of 120 to $25 per acre, and some having as much as twelve hundred or more acres, the question is answered. The Canadian Government Agents at dit terent poiguj in the States report that they have interviewed a great many of those whQ are now visiting friends In the different states, and they all ex press themselves as well satisfied, and promise to take some of their friends back with them. There is still a lot of free homestead land in splen did districts, and other lands can be purchased at a reasonable price from railway and land,companies.

EPIDEMIC OF ITCH IN WELSH VILLAGE "In Dowlais, South Wales, about fif teen years ago, families were strick en wholesale by a disease known as the itch. Believe me, it is the most terrible disease of its kind that I know of, as it itches all through your body and makes your life an inferno. Sleep is out of the question and you feel as if a million mosquitoes were attacking you at the same time, knew a dozen families that were so affected. "The doctors did their best, but their remedies were of no avail what ever. Then tfce families tried a drug gist who was noted far*and wide for his remarkable cures. People came to him from all parts of the country for treatment, but his medicine made matters still worse, as a last resort they were advised by a friend to use the Cuticura Remedies. I am glad to tell you that after a few days' treat ment with Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Resolvent, the effect was wonder ful and the result was a perfect- cure in all cases.

Miss Henrietta Winstantley, sis ter of Bishop Winstanley overheard Banker Ankony propose to Barbara Hem Ingray, whose brother Dan was in his employ. Dan was one of the town's pop ular young men. He showed some nerv ousness when Attorney Tom Twining told him Barbara refused Ankony. Ankony the following day, summoning Twining, accused Dan of looting the bank. Twin ing refused to prosecute: Barbara per-, euaded Ankony to postpone starting prosecution. Twining learned of the en gagement of Ankony and Barbara. He congratulated both. He visited Miss Hemingray and found her almost in tears. He told her he had loved her, but feared prematurely announcing his af fection. By actions alone she told him she reciprocated. Mrs. Anson Dines, wealthy widow, proposed a marriage by proxy with Bishop Winstanley. The lat ter consulted with Twining. The bishop had been paying attentions to Miss Btreeter. Dan consulted Twining, say ing his sister was determined to marry Ankony, declaring she actually loved the banker, though he could not help believ ing she was making a sacrifice to save him from Jail. Miss Winstanley, find ing a pressed rose in the bishop's book, scented a love affair. Mrs. Dines sailted for America. Miss Winstanley Informed Twining that Mrs. Dines was intent upon Btopping the marriage of Barbara- and Ankony. Mrs. Dines arrived and Ankony immediately set about to sail with Bar bara for Europe the following day, in or der, It seemed, to avoid Mrs. Dines. Mrs. Dines confronted Ankony with evidence of his peculations while attorney for the late Mr. Dines. Shd told him that if he persisted in marrying Barbara that day that she would prosecute him. Finally he agreed to her proposition that he should give up Barbara as the price- of Mrs. Dines' silence. Ankony notified Barbara of the necessity for breaking the engage ment. Dan was informed also. CHAPTER 2SK"—Continued. "Everything's all right at last, Tom," he cried. "I don't deserve it, but I'm down on my knees giving thanks for it, just the same, and if ever—" he lowered his voice, looking over my shoulder at some one who was ap proaching—"if ever I get any of you into such a 'muss again, may I be hanged Oh, it's been awful! Tou'll never know. But it's over, thank God! And now it's up to me to make good. 'And that's what I'm going to do, old man. Who 1b this confounded fellow coming? I wanted to talk with you a minute, but I'll look in after dinner, if you're to be at home. There's a deal to tell you," and he was off. An ecclesiastical-looking gentleman mounted the steps with me, inquiring for the bishop, while I went in to Miss Winstanley. She was flushed and smiling and bright-eyed. Did you think I had forgotten you? Bless you, no. But there has been so much to do. We only left Barbara, poor child, an hour ago. There were messages to be sent for her, orders to countermand, and—" Then she isn't going with him?" I broke in. Oh, did you think—is it possible you gave her credit for so little—" "If she loved him—" She caught me up sharply. "Of course she didn't love him. I always told you that, but you would go. on In your stubborn unbelief in my intui tions, you foolish, foolish fellow. My, but she was gallant, though! She had me almost bewildered at first but the moment she found that she could have done with all pretense and that her fancied obligation to Ankony was at an end, then how she changed! It was pitiful to see her. One under stood the terrific strain she has been under. I'm not pretending to say whether or not she cares for you, Mr. Twining—that's for you to find out for yourself, you know—but I think it is only fair to tell you that she never has cared for Ankony." "Thank God!" I devoutly murmured. She patted my arm and made funny little dabs at her eyes with a dot of a handkerchief. "She is going out of town to stay with some friends until the storm of the broken engagement has blown over, she told me. They go to-mor row, she and Dan. He will stay with her a fortnight, until she is a little re covered, for in spite of her wonderful courage and poise, she is tremendous ly undone by all this." "And is there nothing—" "Nothing just yet," she smiled. "Now let me tell you what Dan and I are going to do. You remember that I have some undeveloped mining prop erty is Montana. Experts* have given me a good deal of encouragement over it, but I have been waiting to find just the right man to put at the head of the work. And now Dan is to under take it. Oh"—at my glance—"it isn't a philanthropic scheme. The boy will give me excellent service. If it is a good thing for him, it's a better thing for me. And I'm to go out with him to launch the enterprise. I've no notion of being in the way when my brother and his wife return." "But your brother can't do without you. You will always be as necessary to him as bis wife." ^§tll• 1 •x«»r, perhaps, but not Just at first," she said. "We don't know much about honeymoons, you and I, Mr. Twining but I'm sure you'll agree with me that no man wants even his beloved sister underfoot at that time. So Dan and I are off in a fortnight." "Good!" I approved "and if things don't go well with m« I'll come along. May I?" "«i ,, CHAPTER XII. Barbara was away several weeks, and then one day Mrs. Dines, meeting me on the street, told me that she had come back "to town and that she was well and entirely recovered from the effects of the unfortunate publicity of her broken engagement. I went to see her that evening. It was just after dinner, and the maid told me that Miss Hemingray waygo ing out, but that she would ask if she would see me for a few minutes. As we stood talking, Barbara came down the stairs. She wore a rather scrumptious gown of white—one from her trousseau, I Imagine, and the hope went oyer'me that it might yet fulfill the purpose for which it had been de signed. Her cloak was white too—a velvety, thing that I had not seen be fore. It became her wonderfully, with its bewitching folds and curves and richness. And her brown head, lifting itself with all its charming poise above the new loveliness, thrilled me while the eyes that looked down on me were more like the eyes 'of the Barbara I loved than they had been for a very long time. "Oh, you!" she exclaimed, from the landing where she paused an instant at sight of me. "Going out?" I asked, lightly," as if I were not dazzled and palpitant. "To a very small affair at Averills*. Why not come along?" "Because I'm not asked. But you will give me a minute before go?" I pleaded. the you She glanced at the hall clock. "Yes, I think so. Hord Averill is coming for me, but it isn't time for him yet." "Annie," said I to the maid, "if Mr. Averill arrives, show him into the drawing-room and let him wait." "You are very urgent," Barbara said, with a rather uncertain smile. I held open the library door and she entered. She did not sit, but stood half turning to me, leaning against the corner of the table near the fire place, where a low fire burned. I had never seen her half so lovely, nor so adorable. "We have abused our friendship and treated it shamefully," I said at once, "and now perhaps I am about to maroon it but I must take the chance. Forgive me if I have come too soon, "My Waiting Is Over," I Breathed. dear, but I can wait no longer. I must know—now that you are free to tell me—whether I can ever hope that you will care for me." "Do you know all that has hap pened?" she asked. She was as white as her gown, and her eyes only half lifted to mine. "Yes, Barbara. Don't mind, dear. Part of' it I guessed and the other part had to be told me. But I am glad that there is nothing for you to tell me—nothing but the one thing I am so eager to hear. Yon won't keep me waiting any longer, will you?" "After all that has happened you still want me for—your—" "More than ever a thousand times more than ever!" I cried. As Far Back as 1853 Lord Kelvin Was Experimenting with the Principle. Wireless telegraphy has many dis coverers. As has been so often the case in any branch of physics, wheth er pure or applied, the name of Lord Kelvin is associated with the discov ery. In 1853 he gave forth the theory of oscillation. In 1865 Maxwell pro pounded the theory of electrical waves, and in 1888 Hertz practically discovered them. Sir Oliver Lodge was looking for the waves at the same time, and was successful in finding them running along wires in the same year that Hertz discovered them going through space. In 1890 he was able to take a further step, developing the receiving arrange ments for the detection of these waves by means of the principle which he decided to call syntony. At the same time another word, coherer, was added to the language. In 1894 be was able to give a demon stration before the British association of signaling across space without Many Worked on Wireless VHV.' "I don't understand how you can," she said.. She turned her face, from me, leaning heavily on the table the soft -firelight over her: "Could you. ever be sure of me? I have deceived you so long." "You must deceive neither yourself nor me now," I said, seriously. "I want the truth, whatever that is. Be honest. Don't try to be kind to me. You havei had to make pretense so long. Think only of yourself now." I waited for her reply, but it was. long in coming, s« long that my heart sank. "If I am to be honest," she began, "I must tell you that—that—" "Yes? Don't be afraid, dear." "That it would be foolish—foolish for me to—to try to-r-to care for you, fori—" "£on't try to go on," I cried. "I see. I have been a fool to expect iff." A little sound of pain escaped her. I pulled myself together with an effort. "You mustn't worry," I said, dully. "I can't blame you, heaven knows! I wouldn't have you come to me unless you love me, you know that. And' I would rather go on—alone—than have you givei yourself to me through pity." "Oh, yes, yes!" she cried. I stared into the fire. I had thought I was prepared! Presently she began to speak again: "Won't you let me finish, please? I— I want you to understand. It would be foolish for me to—to try to care for' you, because—because—" "Oh, don't try to ease it for me!" I broke in. "I must learn to bear it. Forgive me for being so long getting myself in hand. You're not toublame yourself, dear. You never gave me any reason to hope, but I did. I told myself that I didn't, but I did—even when I thought Ankony was going to carry you off the next day, I still hoped. It seemed to me that heaven meant you should belong to me, and that I must have you. But there, there! don't look at me like that, and don't—" "I am going to finish," she said, resolutely. "Let me go on." "I wish you wouldn't," I urged. She sat down, bending to the fire. I could not see her eyes, but I knew they were misty, and the softness of her voice was indescribable. "I couldn't try to care for you be cause—because I haW been—have been fighting for months—to—to quit caring. Oh, why—why will Vou be so dense?" "Barbara!" I cried, bending over her.* She put up a futile little hand be tween us, but I laughed in the rap ture of the moment and caught her la my arms. "Wait," she pleaded. .* "My waiting is over!" I breathed. "Oh, look at me, dear one, and let me have the testimony of your eyes. I'm afraid of your lips "Foolish!" whispered she, lifting her eyes to mine. And then: "But oh, you are—Tom, Tom! you are crushing my beautiful new gown, and it—it did cost such a pile," with a lit tle breathless laugh. "There will be plenty of other gowns," I exclaimed, "but never an other moment quite like this." The fire did its best to be up to the situation it crackled in a sudden noisy glee and threw enchanting shad ows over Barbara's head as I looked' down on it Dan's rheumatic old spaniel, who haunted the library, awoke from his nap in the corner at the moment and, coming to stretch himself on the hearth-rug, observed something unusual going on, and, look ing up inquiringly, brushed against Barbara's skirts to attract her atten tion. The maid's light steps passed dowb the hall and I heard the outer door open and a man's voice in the vesti bule. "It's Averill," I said. "I shan't so much mind having to give you up to him now." But he did not seem to enter into the moment with her. "Oh, it has been so hard," she whis pered, a little half sob breaking the sweetness of. her voice. "There were times when I thought I should never, never be able to stand it," and I felt her shiver in my arms. "I know, my brave one," whis pered back "I know." She lifted her head a moment later and looked at me, and my heart bowed beneath the shining of her eyes and the tremulous beauty of her dear face. "But It doesn't matter now. Noth ing matters now," she said, thrillingly, (THE END.) wires, and about the same time he published & book. In 1895 Admiral Popoff of the Rus sian navy and Capt.

Not* satisfied with yielding an enor mous output in the regular way, an Irish potato vine growing in the garden of C. C. Nail at Luthersville, Ga., some time ago began to put out potatoes all along itB branches, and when sent to the Constitution office the other day, had potatoes aB large as eggs growing practically all over the vine. In a letter accompanying the freak Mr. Nail states that the vine grew in his garden, where the land is a mix ture of sand and red clay. On tak ing up the plant, he found that the Industrious vine had not neglected its regular duty while pulling off Its un usual stunt, as proven by the fact that an unusually large number of po tatoes were found in their accustomed place in the ground.—Atlanta Consti tution. Why. does Great Britain buy Its a oatmeal of. us? Certainly it seems like carrying coals to Newcastle to speak of export ing oatmeal to Scotland and yet, every year the Quaker Oats Company sends hundreds of thousands of cases of Quaker Oats to Great, Britain and Europe. The reason Is simple while tl»e English and Scotch have for centuries eaten oatmeal in quantities and with a regularity that has made them the most rugged physically, and active mentally of all people, .the American has been 'eating oatmeal and trying all the time to improve the methods of manufacture so that he might get that desirable foreign trade. How well he has succeeded would be seen at a glance at the export re-" ports of Quaker Oats. This brand is. recognized as without a rival in clean liness and delicious flavor.
