YIELDS OF WHEAT WILL LIKELY
BE 25 TO 30 BUSHELS
In an interview with Mr. W. J.
White, who has charge of the Cana
dian government immigration offices
in the United States, and who has re
cently made an extended trip through
the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatche
wan and Alberta in Western Canada.
He said that every point he visited
he was met with the one report, uni
versally good crops of wheat, oats
and barley. There will this year be a
much increased acreage over last
year. Many farmers, who had but
one hundred acres last year, have in
creased their cultivated and seeded
acreage as much as fifty per cent.
With the prospects as they are at
present, this will mean from $12 to
$15 additional wealth to each. He
saw many large fields running from
300 to 1,000 acres in extent and it ap
peared to him that there was not an
acre of this but would yield from 20
to 25 or 30 bushels of wheat per acre,
while the oat prospects might safely
be estimated at from 40 to 70 bushels
per acre. In all parts of the west,
whether it be Manitoba, Saskatche
wan or Alberta, north and south, east
and yest, and in the districts where
last year there was a partial failure
of crops, the condition of all grain is
universally good and claimed by most
of the farmers to be from one to two
weeks in advance of any year for the
past ten or twelve years. It does not
seem that there was a single foot of
the ground that was properly seeded
that would not produce.
There are those throughout western
Ganada who predict that there will be
200,000,000 bushels of wheat raised
there this year, and if the present
favorable conditions continue, there
does not seem any reason why these
prophesies should not come true.
There is yet a possibility of hot
winds reducing the quantity in some
parts, but with the strongly rooted
crops and the sufciency of precipita
tion that the country has already
been favored with, this probability is
reduced to a minimum.
The prices of farm lands at the
present time are holding steady and
lands can probably still be purchased
at the price set this spring, ranging
from $15 to $20 per acre, but with a
harvested crop, such as is expected,
there is no reason why these same
lands should not be worth from $20
to $25 per acre, with an almost abso
lute assurance that by next spring
there will still be a further advance
Mr. White says that these lands are
as cheap at today's igures with the
country's proven worth as they were
a few years ago at half the price
when the general public had but a
vague idea of the producing quality
of western Canada lands.
The land agents at the different
towns along the line of railway are
very active. A large number of acres
are turned over weekly to buyers
from the different states in the south,
where lands that produce no better
are sold at from $150 to $200 per
The homestead lands are becoming
scarcer day by day and those who are
unable to purchase, preferring to
homestead, are directing their atten
tion to the park acres lying in the
northerly part of the central dis
tricts. It has been found that while
these are somewhat more difficult to
bring under the subjugation of. the
plow, the soil is fully as productive
as in the districts farther south. They
possess the advantage that the more
open prairie areas do not possess;
that there Is on these lands an open
acreage of from fifty to seventy per
cent of the whole and the balance is
made up of groves of poplar of fair
sdse, which offer shelter for cattle,
while the grasses are of splendid
strength and plentiful, bringing about
a more acUtive stasge of mixed farming
than can be carried on in the more
open districts to the south.
The emignration for the past year
has been the greatest in the history
et Canada and it is keeping up in
record shape. The larger number of
those, who will go this year will be
those who will buy lands nearer the
ie of railways, preferring to pay a
little higher price for good locatieo
than to go back from the line of ral,
ways some 40 or 50 miles to ho-e

PRESERVED BY PHONOGRAPH
Record* of Old Mojave Indian Songs
to Be Kept by University
Berkeley, Cal.-Achorn Hungara, a
Mojave Indian from Needles, Cal., will
enjoy the unique distinction of having
his voice preserved in phonographic
records for time immemorial, by the
anthropological department of the
University of California. The branch
of the anthropological department that
is preserving these records is especial
ly detailed to work up the historical
features. Achorn Hungara is unable
to speak English, but he has as his
companion and interpreter Captain
Jack Jones, who is also a Mojave In
Achorn Hungara will spend about
five hours a day for the next few
weeks singing into the phonograph
the songs of the Mojave dialects. The
Indian singer can sing songs in nine
different dialects and he knows over
three hundred different songs. Some
of the songs are along historical re
citals and it takes several days for a
t single song. Many of the songs have
been handed down from father to son
for generations, and it is hoped that
the early history of the Indian race in
the southwest may be amplified
through these songs. After the songs
have been sung in the dialect into
the phonograph they will be translated
into English by Captain Jack Jones.
The university will then have not only
a complete historical record, but it
will also possess a musical record
, showing the cadences adopted by the
Indian singers and also the words they
use. This record may or may not be
of tremendous value in establishing
the connection between the American
Indian and oriental people.

HIRAM CARPENTER'S WONDER
FUL CURE OF PSORIASIS.
"I have been afflicted for twenty
years with an obstinate skin disease,
called by some M. D.'s. psoriasis, and
others leprosy, commencing on my
scalp; and in spite of all I could do,
with the help of the most skilful doe'
tors, it slowly but surely extended un
til a year ago this winter it covered
my entire person in the form of dry
scales. For the last three years I have
been unable to do any labor, sad
suffering intensely all the time Every
morning there would be nearly a dusta
panful of scales taken from the sheet
on my bed, some of them half as large
as the envelope containing this letter.
º In the latter part of winter my skil
commenced cracking open. I tried
everything, almost, that could be
thought of, without any relief. The
12th of June I started West, in hopes
I could reach the Hot Springs. I
reached Detroit and was so low I
thought I should have to go to the
hospital, but finally got as far as Lam
a sing, Mich., where I had a sister liv
ing. One Dr. - treated me about
two weeks, but did me no good. All
I thought I had but a short time to live.
I earnestly prayed to die. Cracked
through the skin all over my back,
cross my ribs, arms, hands, limbs;
Seet badly swollen; toe-nails came off;
SSager-nails dead and hard as a bone;
hair dead, dry and lifeless as old
º straw. 0 my God! how I did suter.
"My sister wouldn't give up; said,
'We will try Cuticur.' Some was ap
plied to one hand and arm. Eureka!
there was rellef; stopped the terrible
burning sensation from the word go.
They immediately got Cuticurs Re
solvent, Ointment and Soap. I com
menced by taking Cuticura Resolvent
three times a day after meals; had a
bath once a day, water about blood
heat; used Cuticura Soap freely; ap
plied Cuticura Ointment morning and
evening. Result: returned to my
home in just six weeks from the time
I left, and my skin as smooth as this
