DEVELOPMENT OF - CENTRAL CANADA .THE STORY OF BIO YIELDS OF GRAIN COMES FROM EVERY v SECTION. - When the man la the States iu '-told that he could get 160 acres of land In Central Canada comprising the provinces of Manitoba, Saikatche--waa and Alberta that under cultiva tion would produce from 20 to SO bush--ls of if heat to the acre, or If aeeded to oata the yield would be 40 to 60 bushels, he was akeptlcaL The aame story waa told the man who wished to .get nearer to existing lines, of rail way, and waa only asked to pay $10 to f 13 an acre. But many tried It, .some one plan and some another. The man who accepted the 160 acres aa a free gift, aa a homestead, and waa willing to put In the required resi dence duties of three years baa now :a farm worth from fifteen to twenty dollars an acre. The man who chose to purchase, and did so, took up his residence Just the same. He haa land, that. In many cases, is worth twice the money he paid for it Doth bare found that the story of splendid yields was verified. They hare had crops exceeding that promised; they have seen oats that yielded 100 bushels to the acre, and hate grown wheat that averaged 40 and aa high as 50 bushels to the acre. Their wheat was not a 7 lb. to the bushel article but 62 and 63 lbs. They have seen within the past year or two trunk lines of rail' way constructed through their district. and throwing out branch lines to the g-ates of their farm. They hare seen schools established in their neigh ' bourhood and the Government con . tributlng largely to their expense. . Churches have been erected, villages have been established, towns have sprung into existence and cities are rapidly springing up, as if the magic hand of some unseen conjurer was at work. But it was not; it was the le gitimate offering of the wealth of the field which made all these things come about, naturally, and easy. The prai rie that three years ago was merely prairie, a patch of brown, Just waiting for the ploughman, is to-day dotted with tilled farms and splendid homes. The line of elevators with their glis tening metalled fireproof sides and roofs, indicate the location of the town and the railroad. There Is the glow of newness about it all, but the elevator, the splendid store buildings and the comfortable hostelries denote wealth, beyond that of the strength of the man who fashioned and built them but the wealth of the soil, which means that the newness will be fol lowed by a steady growth. The writer recently waa a passenger over the Grand Trunk Pacific, the latest fac tor in this great marvelous field of development. The rapidity with which towns were being built up, the farm' steads occupied, was something even his experienced eye had not looked for. Everywhere along the line of this new transcontinental was the die- tlnguishlng mark of progress. There was not a mile of the length of the road from Winnipeg to Edmonton and west that did not bear token of its ability to pay tribute to the revenue of the road. Mention is made of this line, not because it is the last In the field, but because it la one of the best built roads on the Continent and traverses one of the best districts of an excellent country. It is well operated, and already has gone into active, service as another means of making it possible to secure more speedily transit from the grain fields to the shipping centres.. It had been the intention in this article to have spoken of some of the yields of grain that have made the farmers of Cen tral Canada contented this year, but space will not permit, so that delight ful task will be taken up in another issue. In the meantime it would be well for the reader, if he is interest ed, to put himself in touch with some official of the Canadian Government and get information that might be use ' ful in making a selection for a home 1 in Central Canada, and become one of those who will be instrumental in building up a great country to the north. In doing so, you will be as sisting the United States. In a few years' time the United States will be a wheat importer. Canada will sup : ' ply the wheat and you will he one of , the producers. Ready with Explanation. . A rector of Eltham once gave out - the words: "Who art thou?" and, as he paused for a moment, an officer in uniform, who had just entered the church, suddenly halted, and taking . the question as personal, promptly re plied: "Sir, I am the recuiting officer of the Sixteenth Foot, and, having my , wife and daughter with me, should be - glad to .make the acquaintance of the clergy and gentry of the neighbor- - hood." ' llanr smokers prefer them to 10c cigars. Till tho dealer you want Lewis Single Binder, factory, Peoria, Illlnoii ' p -a " Said Mr. A to Mr. A. on Dtc. To-morrow another year begins. To-night is the time of all times to plan for the future. To resolve; to forswear our petty vices; to lay aside the evils in our lives. Have j;ou, John, considered what to-night means to you, and to me? Have you thought of the things I have gone without and might have had but for your extravagance? Have you counted the cost to you, and to me, of your so-called pleas ures? You sit there smoking a vile weed, but have you thought of the gowns you have burned up within a year? I venture to say no, Let's talk it over, John, just you for better and more noble things in Said Mr. A. to Mrs. A on Dec. Your sentiments, my dear, are noble ones, and meet with my approval. We will plan to-night for the year that is to come. Yes, not the year alone, but years. We will study and solve the problems that mean a better and truer life for you and me. There are many little things we might improve upon. So -many better ways in which to spend the small sums we now but throw away. The price of that novel you are reading would have need. Now let's begin by my giving up cigars, which I agree are but vile weeds, and you your novels, of trash and twaddle. Said Mr. A to Mr. A on Dtc. With all the many vices with that you might overlook the one admit there are more elevating books than present-day novels. But am I to give up my only pleasure, the one small thing from which I get my wee mite of enjoyment? of me this sacrifice that you might have the slippers you certainly do not need ? Your vices are so great beside my small one. If you really mean all that you say about planning for the future, why not give up your club? It is but another of you incur year after year. Said Mr. A 1o Mr. A on Dec. That's right, and I'm glad you of it before. That will be money and it's fair. My resignation1 from will join me in the good wurk and mail to-night your withdrawal from the bridge club or class or whatever you may call it. A good deed is always better when it's doubled, and that will be two good deeds accomplished, two savings made, dear; will you join me in turning ot a . new year? 1 he question is course, that you will. Said Mr. A to Mr. A on Dec. You certainly can be horrid when you should look back upon the things which you have needlessly robbed me of during the year just closing. I should think you would be ashamed to sit there and point to my few small pleasures as though they were vices from which I should escape. There is certainly little enough in lite lor me without being deprived of books and socia intercourse. But if I must, I must, and if the sacrifice of my innocent pleasures wilfput a stop to your many vices I presume I must offer them on the altar of noble and obedient wifehood. But, oh, John, did not think you would ask it. (Tears.) Said Mr. A to Mr. A on Jee. Now, wife, dont cry. I am a brute and. I admit it. Let's start anew and talk this over. Let's sec if we have sinned against ourselves or others. Let's see if our so-called vices are not mere pleasures to which we are entitled. I think they are. I see nothing we need repent of; nothing to-swear oft. Ill keep HI keep my club and you your slippers go hang if need be, and isn't it, my dear? That meets with will greet the coming year with joy tions. " ,.-- v i i Rteh)ed bv Mr. A ana Mr. . uurnig me next year ant" me as we have lived them. We will ures.
