Rapid Settlement of the Wheat
Fleldti Lying1
North of the
40th Parallel.
[From the Chicago Record-Herald
"Canadahas anticipated a very heavy
Immigration this yeax^ aud she now has
ilgures to show that she is actually
.getting it in a way to meet all her
expectations. In the first four
Jnonths of this year the doors'of the
Dominion opened to 40,672 persons,
according a a report prepared by
the committee on agriculture and
colonization of the Canadian parlia
ment. This is almost twice as large
as the immigration in the corre
sponding months last year, and fully
three times as large as in 1901, the
espective figures being 22,482 and
"Most of these newcomers have
been attracted by the wheat lands of
the Northwest territories. They
liave moved direct from Winnipeg
and they have turned that city into
a great camp, in which they have
been fitting themselves out for the
Jast stage of their adventure for
new homes.
"Of the immigration of this spring
a little over a third has come from
Great Britain, the figure being 16,-
457. This is three times as large a
the British immigration of the cor
responding months of the preceding
year, and it is within' 2,500 of the
mumber of immigrants that the
United States attracted from Great
Britain*, and Ireland in the same
rperiod this spring. As to the re
mainder of the immigration into
Canada, 13,770 settlers came from the
'United States, a 50 per cent, increase
over the preceding year, and 10,445
from Continental Europe, a 40 per
cent, increase.
"These 40,672 immigrants into
Canada may appear trifling in com
-parison with the 297,070 persons who
entered the United States in the
-same period, but they are propor
tionately more important to the
country. Canada's population is one
fifteenth of ours, but her immigra
tion is now two-fifteenths as large as
ours. It is worth remembering also
that Canada's immigrants are almost
entirely of Anglo-Saxon and Teuton
ic races, while our immigration is
now two-thirds made up of Romance
and -Slav elements.
"Speculation is natural as to the
future of Canada in her relations to
the United States when her North
west territories are filled up, but
the one absolutely certain fact of the
near future is that the United States
is to ha-\e a great competitor in the
grain markets of the world."
The above editorial article taken
from the columns of the Chicago
Record-Herald of May2 26th shows
the condition of the Canadian Im
migration, which as pointed out, has
had a constant growtha marvelous
ly increasing growthfor the past
cix or seven years, until this year, it
-is confidently assumed the increase
to Canada's population, by way of
Immigration, will exceed 100,000.
This is accounted for by the great
agricultural resources,which abound
'there. It is no fairy tale, but the
matter-of-fact experience of the tens
of thousands bear ample testimony
"to the wealth and riches in store for
'11 who choose to accept of the "op-
portunities offered.

William Carj Duncan, in Farm and
JTJhe General TJiongUit He Was
(roner, Hut Quickly Revised
When He Found Oat.
'That reminds me," said the
sergeant, in the Chicago Inter Ocean,
"of my own experience with a spent
ball. We were going up Lookout
mouiitain from the west. Things were
moving our way with a whirl, and I
never felt better in my life a musket
ball struck me in the abdomen, and
I never felt worse. I staggered,
dropped, ana the boys, not expecting
anyone to be shot at that time, ran
on with the rejoicing line sweeping
up the mountain. I was a disappoint
ed and miserable man, the pain of
the wound driving me nearly wild.
I yelled for help and put my hand in
side ray blouse to discover what sort
of a hole had been bored into me. I
found no wound, but my nervous fin
gers clutched a musket ball ljing in
sjie my blouse.
*U knew what that meant. I knew
that I had been struck by a spent
ball, and when our surgeon came up
and gave direction to have me car
ried back, I said nothing. I simply
looked as miserable as I felt. Before
I had been taken up, however, the
general commanding our brigade rode
slowly to where the doctor sat on
his horse. The general slouched for
ward in the saddle, was supported by
a staff officer, and he looked as mis
erable as I felt. It was explained
that the general had been severely
wounded. He was assisted off his
horse and was laid at full length not
ten feet from me.
"He groaned and swore, and asked
the doctor to be quick and give him
some relief from the damnable pain.
The doctor opened the general's coat,
felt about a minute, and then, hold
ing out his hand to the aid, said:
Thank God, it is only a spent ball.'
Instantly the general, who had been
stretched out, relaxed and nerveless,
sat tip and said roughly: 'What's
that? A spent ball. Oh, h1! Here,
get out of the way. Put me on my
horse. I would give all my gear's
pay to lick the man who hit me with
a spent ball.' Once on his horse, he
rode away to the front, like a charg
ing cavalryman. The doctor, looking
after him, said to the surprised hos
pital man: 'A little exercise will help
him.' Taking the hint, I scrambled
to my feet and staggered up hill, but
the doctor shouted after me: 'Hold
on, there every step jo take makes
the trea+inent of jour wound more
"I thought what was good for a
brigadiei was good for a, sergeant,
and I staggered on. The doctor,
thinking I v\as crazed by pain, rode
after me. When he came up to me
I held out my hand, with the musket
ball in it, and, looking at the ball in
liis own hand, he said: 'I see. Two
of you. Take this.' I took a swallow
from his flask, went on to my com
pany, i and when told the boys of
my experience, Tom, Dick and Bluff
er exclaimed as if with one voice:
'Why in Sam Hill didn't you take four
swallows?' They didn't care anything
about the spent ball, and I got no
sympathy on that score. The spot
where the confounded ball struck,
however, is sore to this day, and oc
casionally I wake up in the night as
miserable as I was that day on Look
out mountain. I don't brag about be
ing hit in that battle, but I never
was harder hit in all my life."
Tnoinsht Tne ere In Danger from
Confederates, But the D-istnrber
Was Harmless.
In July, 1902, down in Alabama,
near Woodville, four of our men, only
two of them having guns, encoun
tered a band of bushv. hackei s, who
fired upon them from the rear. Gal
lant Joe Hitchcock, carrying a gun*
was the only one of the four not
wounded. The bushwhackers then
charged, but Hitchcock turned and
.fired his gun, checking, somewhat,the
impetuosity of the bushwhackers.' as
sault. He then picked up the other
gun and fired again. The lone
Hitchcock had the satisfaction of see
ing one of the bushwhackers fall. Los
ing interest in the proceedings, the
assailants gathered up their hors-de
combat comrades and took to the
woods. One of our wounded 'men
subsequently died. I relate this epi
sode by way of preface to my story,
saysE. Houghtaling, in National Trib
One very dark night John Snider
and I were on picket in a lane about
50 rods from Woodville. As the en
counter with the bushwhackers had
occurred near where we were sta*
tioned, we kept wide awake, intent
ly listening for the slightest sound.
Snider was on one side of the lane and
I on the other. Nervously expectant,
we were very quiet. Suddenly we
heard, an awfully, terrifying noise,
seemingly some four or five rods in
our front. Thinking of the dark and
devious ways of the bushwhackers,
wc were duly scared, and, for the mo
ment, paralyzed. Presently Snider
crawled over to my position and
huskily whispered: "What in the
do you suppose it is?" In a like)
whisper I replied: "I don't know,
but I am not going to stay here in
dread suspense. I'm going to move
forward and develop the enemj." Said
Snider: "All right. You go ahead,
and I'll follow." Traveling n all fours,
we cautiously advanced, single file,
down the lane. Now and then Sni
der would pull my leg, indicating that
he wanted me to halt and hold a
council of war. His inquiry, in a stage
whisper, was ahvajs the same: "What
do you think it is?" Shaking him off,
I would whisper back: "I guess we
shall find out soon enough keep still
as a mouse, and have your gun ready.
I think we are right on to 'em. Wait
and see." Stealthily approaching an
excavation made by the roots of an
upturned tree, we heard a slight
noise. I impressively whispered to
Snider: "Get your gun ready. We
are right on the spot." As an ad
vanced skirmisher, I pushed myself
a little further forward, when, lo and
behold, I heard a mighty grunt and
then saw a big hog scramble out of
that hole and go wabbling off in un
dignified retreat. I know it was a
big hog for two reasons. We had
killed all the small ones, and surely
no little hog could have scared two big
19-year-old boys with guns in their
hands. Concerning that Indian-like
advance of two nervous pickets, Sni
der and I were duly reticent. There
is no denying the facts. We wera
both scared. So was the hog.

Mrs. Robert

Texas, tells an
experience that
will interest ev
ery reader. It
shows as well
that Doan's
cures are last-
ing cures. She
says: Up to
the early part of the year 1903 I bad
been a sufferer from kidney troubles
for many years. The pain in my back
became worse and worse until it was a
daily burden that interfered with every
duty. I was much afflicted with head
aches and dizzy spells and was unable
to rest well nights. In May 1902 after
using Doan*s Kidney Pills I made a
statement for publication declaring
that they had entirely relieved me of
the pain in my back. I have since then
had a yeai's time in which to study the
effects of the medicine, and while I
have had slight touches of the trouble
sinee, the use of the pills has always
driven away all signs of the disorder
and I have become convinced of the
fact that the first treatment was prac
tically permanent in its effects, and I
know that a box of Doan's Kidney Pills
kept on hand is a sufficient guarantee
against any suffering from the kidneys
or back. I should advise every sufferer
to take Doan's Kidney Pills, and I know
that they will be surprised and pleased
with the result."

Catarrh of the pelvic organs produces
such a variety of disagreeable and irri

no idea that they are caused by catarrh.
If all the women who are suffering

Dr, Hartman has probably cured more
women of female ailments than'any

cures simply by using and recommend)
