There was ouch a time when mat

Curiously enough, one of their

the very last tiling that foreigners of
any nation ever think them capable
of, says a. Paris correspondent of the
Ix>u<lou Globe. And yot in no country
in the world does one see families so

French marriages turn out, on the

marriageable aga a young man of
somewhat about her own age and k<»
cial position and possessed of a sim
ilar fortune is searched for by friends
uiul relatives, and when found a mar
riage is "arranged." 1 have known
one woman who bitterly complained
of thus being thrown Into the arms of
v stranger, but only one. And she—
although she complains about the
want of romance of her young days—
has made a most admirable wife and
mother, and certainly a useful mem
ber of society.
French husbands and wives an
usually the very best of friends In
the world, seconding each other In
whatever state of life they happen to
be, and considering the bringing up
ajid marrying off of their children as
things of the very greatest importance.
I have before me a letter received the
other day from an old friend, now a
widower, announcing the marriage of
one of his two daughters. Curiously
quaint to BngUsfa ears sounds the man-

English father announcing his daugh

course, during the engagement the
young man and his "fiancee" will not
have many opportunities of becoming
better known to each other, as they
will never be 1.-.ft for one moment

Montana Is coming In for a big
share of the general prosperity of tho
country, and It will only be ■ few
short years when she will rank with
any of the Northwestern States In
agricultural greatness. The recent act
of the Interior Department of the
United States In setting aside $1,000.
--000 toward reclaiming three or four
hundred thousand acres in tho Milk
River Valley Is but a beginning of a
much vaster development of this sec
tion as the needs grow apace. Al
ready the agricultural worth of this
to be famous valley has been ade
quately demonstrated In the results
which have followed the Irrigation
works already established. It has
been successfully proven that all kind*
of agricultural products grow In great
abundance wherever Irrigation is used.
The (soil is naturally rich and needs
only moisture to make it yield prolific
ally. The Great Northern Hallway's
main line practically cuts the valley
in two. The fact that the government
has decided to begin Immediate oper
ations will prove a great incentive to
the people of that section who have
always believed in the future of their
country and will open to settlement a
vast area of rich land to the home
seeker and Investor.
Professor El wood Mead, the Irriga
tion expert of the United States De
partment of Agriculture, lias borne en
tlniNiiistU 1 testimony to the great capa
bilities of the Sacramento Valley when
■applied with water, In canals and
ditches, for Irrigation, He says, In an
official report, that its available water
supply should make it "the Egypt of
the Western hem sphere."
The Irrigable ."iron of the valley is
estimated to bo more than .T,(MX),OOO
acres, and calculations show that the
average annual discharge of the Bae
rntnpiito River nt Its mouth Is bulll
clent to Irrigate every acre of this
groat nrea. Professor Mead, after re
marking that It la a sinful waste to
allow so much water to flow unused
to the son, snve for purposes of navi
gation, thus UluHtrates the astonish
ing variety of the product* of the
"Within n radius of five miles In
the Sacramento Valley I saw every
product of the temperate and neml
troplcal zones which I could call to
mind. Applet and oranges grow side
by side, us did oak and almond trees.
There were olives from the South and
cherries from the North. A date palm
seemed equally at home with an nlfal
fa meadow; flga and Tokay grapes
were apparently us much tn their ela
lneiit as the fields of Wheat or barley
or the mwH of Indian corn, some of
the stalks of which measured fifteen
feet In height. All Of these could
have been grown on a single acre, and
doubtless have been."
In another report the same authori
ty expresses a like view, as follows:

traveled made the distance about
thirty-five mllea. We crossed what Is
potentially one of the most fertile and
promising agricultural districts on this
continent. For scores of miles the
land rises by a gentle mid uniform
slope from the Sacramento River to
ward the foothills on either side. Wa
ter would flow over every acre of the
country traversed without requiring
much labor In Its direction or skill In
the location of lateral ditches. The.
plains of Lombard; are not better suit
ed to Irrigation, nor the noil of tin-
Nile l>eltn more fertile than were
then* lands originally. For a half
centQTy they have been devoted to the
unremitting production of cereal
crops. Kit^li geußon the crop hns been
harvested, the grain shipped away,
and the straw burned, and nothing
■done to replace the plant food with-
Irawn. A more exhaustive form of
ngricnlture cannot be Imagined. Al
though this surprising drain haa gone
jn for fifty years, It cannot continue
The absence of rainfall during the
harvest period Is one of the great ad
vantages of California, where the
needed moisture can be supplied by
Irrigation. It Is likewise one of the
greatest obstacles to diversified agri
culture where dependence Is had on
rainfall alone. The natural opportu
nities of the district traversed are
equal to, If not greater than those of
the country surrounding Riverside,
Cal., which has been appropriately
designated as the "Garden Spot of
America," but a difference In agricul
tural Ideas hus produced a eorrenpond
ing difference In conditions.
