The violin nnd violoncello nre most sensitive to atmoapharifl conditions nnd suffer from atmospheric variations quite BB much as the tender vocal cords of tho singer. Those who bavu attempted to make the violin an orna ment by banging it upon tin- wall bare had reason to repent Liking such a liberty. The violin loses Its varnish mom Like to Marry Me 7" and gradually Its pitch nnd timbre. The artificial heat of rooms In winter makes Its tone raucous when It does not Obliterate It entirely. Metal canes, morocco covered, ore equally unlit for It. A strong, well varnished wooden case, even though It bo not eapeclally nttractivo to tho eye, suits the sua ceptlhllltlea of tho violin much better. Certain qualities, suuui lines unsus pected.

The wood soon aOQUln d B yellow tone, nnd. under the nctlon ol light aftgf drying, the color darkened and took on the aspect of very old paint. For commercial pur Itoses this was all very well, but what happened to the purchaser was that as soon us ho began to uso his In strument exposed to tho light the bi chromate worked on tbe gelatine which the manufacturers employed to color tho wood nnd prevent tin; pene trating of the varnish, while some ah inent In the bichromate of soda waa convert! d Into stone.

THE BANKS OF CANADA The closing of tbo year 11)12 has brought out the usual bunk statements nccuinpantcd by the addresses of tho I'resldeuts and General Managers of these Institutions. Their reading la Interesting ub they show In a striking manner the prosperity of the country, and deul with economic matters In a first hand way. ThoBe who know any thing of Caundian bunking methods know the stability of theso Institu tions, and the high charucter of tho mafl who ore placed in charge. In discussing the lain! situation the Pres ident of the Union Hunk of Canada, whose branches are to ho found In all parts of the Canadian West, said: "A good deal has been said about peculation in land. The increase In land values has added enormously to the assets of Wesiern business, and has to some extent form ad a busls for extended credit, but this la not felt to be u drawback Whan the value Is real niul convertible We coiuilder that a business Handing which Is strength ened and enhanced by property hold ings Is entitled to a reasonable cn- utrgamagt of red It for legitimate bual- BOSfl operations." It will thus be seen that the banks recognize tho certain rise in the value of farm I. in, Is In Western Canada. Wlieii the facts are known of the won derful producing qualities of Rum lands In the Provinces of Manitoba, Baikatchenran nnd Alberta, it is sim ple to unilei stuiul tho liberal stand taken by the banks. l iving not far from Lnshbiini. Sask , Is a fanner named Clarke w ho In 11)12 secured a crop of Marquis Wheat, yielding 76 bushels per acre. This Is Spoken of uu a record yield, nnd this Is doubtless true, but several case, have been brought to notice where yields nlmost us largo have been pro dueadi and In different parts of the country. During the past year there bare bean reported many yields of from lis to 45 bushels of wheat to the acre OtttB, too, wero a success ful crop, and so was the barley crop Whent that would yield 40 bushels per acre, would bring on the market 70r la fair llgurei per bushel, 0 i:ross return of 2K.0o per ncre Al low 111.00 per acre (an outside figure) tlu re would be a balance of 116.00 per ncre net profit. This figure should satisfy unone having laud Hint cost lens than 1100.00 per acre. Very much less return than this proves satisfac tory to those holding lands In Iowa nnd Illinois worth from M0 to 200 1st acre. The lalest Government returns glvo nn approximate aetltnata of four bun drad thousand of nn Immigration to Canada during 1.H2. Of this number 100,000 will be from the Dotted States. Most of theso are of the farming clnss nnd It Ib not difficult to understand why farming lands In Canada will nil Vance from ten to twenty per cent. Within the next twelve mouths There fore Investment In Western Canadian lands Is not looked upon as being In the paculattve class. Those fortunate enough to secure free homesteads In Canada will acquire In the Intrinsic: Value of the land alone the best pos sible start for u splendid future. Ad vertisement.
