Chiefly because of the elevation of
the country, 'the absence of large
lakes and rivers,: and the operations
of the "Chinook" or .Pacific ,oCean
windfi, which readily cross the Rocky,
mountainsin Southern Alberta
through gaps and passes, the south
western portion of'the Canadian prov
inces is regarded as somewhat arid,
and less fertile than other portions of
the country.

Englishman and Americans in the
western territories are bringing in
their herds as fast as they can and
leasing or purchasing land in lots
from 1,000 to 20,000 acres from the
Dominion government. An idea of the
growth of the industry will, however,
be gathered from the fact that in 1899
there were but 41,471 head of cattle
shipped and sold from the ranches.
These figures ran to 55,129 in* 1900,.
and to 160,000 in 1903, averaging $40
per head for the owners. But it takes

The Second Part.
The second part of the Canadian
prairies embraces the great wheat
growing Belt of the country, which
is easily-a half larger, than any other
in the,world. It includes about 150,
000,000 acres. As it is comparatively
free of broken land, large lakes and
rivers, about 125,000,000 acres of it
can be brought under the plow. Plac
ing a farmer on every half section
(320 acres) it can comfortably locate
800,000 farmers, or 4,000,000 of an
agricultural community. The terri
torial government's reports show that
in 1903 there w.ere raised 16,629,149
bushels of spring wheat, off 837,234
acres, an average of 19.86 bushels per
acre off 440,662 acres of oats there

£arge Quantity of Free Homestead
There is yet a large quantity of
government land for homesteadfng in
this country, and as in everything
else, "the early bird catches tho
worm." Those who come first are
first served. When it is preferred to1
purchase railway or other company
lands they can be got at from $5 per
acre up. This section cannot be
better closed than by showing prac-!
tically what is made by wheat grow-?
ing in this district. The average from]
the first of operations is twenty bush
els per acre. Breaking the prairie, as
first plowing is called, is ot course,'
an exceptional expenditure, as when it
is once done, it is done for all time.
This costs about $3.50 an acre. After
the breaking, plowing and seeding,
harvesting, threshing and marketing
—all expenses combined amount to
per acre, that js if a man!
likes everything done it will cost him
$5,25 per acre. If he does the work
himself he. is earning wages while
producing at that figure. Now, as the
average yield is twenty bushels, and
the average price 60 cents—$12 per
acre—the difference betwen the re
sult and cost, $6.75, is the profit of
grain growing yeat in and year out
in the great wheat belts of the Cana
dian prairie country. If a man has
a half section of land and puts half
of it, 160 acres, under wheat, which
is a very common occurrence, he
makes $1,080 on wheat alone and
should make, if he is a capable farmer
enough, out of other crops, sale of cat
tle, dairy and other products, to keep
himself and family the year round b&
The Third Division.
The third division of this great
country lies to the north of the wheat
belt between it and what is known
as the forest country. As wheat grow
ing implies the raising of all cereals
that can profitably be raised in the
country, the remaining branches of
69,667 acres produced 1,741,209 bush
els "of barley—24.65 to the acre,
and. 32,431 acres produced 292,853
bushels of flax seed, 9.03 to the acre.

mixed farming are dairying and the
laising of farm stock. It must not
be supposed that dividing the prairies
in this way is saying that any one por
tion of the country possesses better
soil than another, for such is not the
case—all districts are equally fertile,
but the topography and Climatic influ
ences, etc., differ, as well as the condi
tions for production. Ranching and
grain growing are -carried on quite
successfully in this northern zone
but it is found more profitable to com-,
bine all the features of the industry.'
An authority on the subject has
stated that agriculture in any country
r.ever reaches the maximum of de
velopment until the farmers engage at
ieast proportionately in. dairying,'

determine the extent to which' any
feature of the industry may be prose*
In the territories creameries and
cheese factories are to a iarge extent
under government control, and as
such are working well. In Manitoba
they are largely a matter of private
enterprise, and from the reports from'
that province they must be giving ab
solute satisfaction to the patrons and
promoters. If a settler's farm is not
specially adapted to extensive crop
ping,'or if seasons or otlier conditions
are against the proper development
of large crops, he has always plenty
of pasture and an abundance of native
bay for winter feed. A small sum ol
money buys a couple of cows, and he

Lavender Ties in London.
Word comes from London that the
lavender neisktie is now wrapped
about the neck of every man who pre
tends to know what he ought to wear.
The prevalence of this fashion is due
to the fact that the king went to As
cot for the Derby wearing a scarf of
this hue. Of course, the well-dressed
men of London were similarly adorned
by noon the next day. The lavender
scarf has enjoyed a long period of pop
ularity here without the prestige of

Consolation for Sleepy Folks Tendered
by Physicians.
To he told that physicians recom
mend yawning as a remedy for dis
ease would make some people smile
with incredulity, but it is a fact nev
ertheless. They say that muscles are
brought into'play during a yawn that
would otherwise never get any exer
cise at all. The muscles that move
the lower jaw and the breathing mus
cles of the chest are the first that
come into use in the yawn. Then the
tongue is rounded, the palate tightly
stretched and the uvula raised.
Near the termination of the yawn
the eyes close, the ears are slightly
raised and nostrils dilate. The
crack sometimes heard in the ear
shows that the aural membranes are
also stretched and exercised, some
thing that cannot be done by any oth
3r process."
--Nasal catarrh, inflammation of the
palate, sore throat and earache may
all be helped toward a cure by the suf
ferer's making a practice of yawning
six or seven times a day. But good
form requires that it should be done
in'private, of course.

Apparently trifling incidents in woman's daily life frequently produce
displacements of the womb. A

standing at a counter, running a sewing machine, or attending to the most
ordinary tasks may result in displacement, and atrainof serious evils is started.

Don't let the condition become chronic through neglect or a mistaken idea
that you can overcome it by exercise or leaving it alone.
