50,000 NEEDED TO
HARVEST WESTERN CANADA’S CROP Will Take 160,000 Alto gether to Take Care of Yield of Prairie Provinces. One hundred and slxty-two thousand farm hands will be required this year to harvest the grain crops of Mani toba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Of this number the local help will pro vide about 112,000, which will leavo about 50,000 extra farm hands. There Is, therefore, a great demand for this class of laborers in all parts of West ern Canada. In order to meet the re quirements it has been arranged to grant very low railway rates from all boundary points reached by Canadian railways.' In order to secure these rates it Will be necessary for you to call on one of the following authorized agents of the Canadian government: M. V. Mclnnes, 175 Jefferson Avenue, Detroit, Michigan; C. A. Laurier, Mar quette, Michigan; J. S. Crawford. Syracuse, N. Y.; Thos. Hetherington, Room 202, 73 Tremont Street, Boston, Mass.; H. M. Williams, 413 Gardner Bldg., Toledo, Ohio; Geo. Aird, 216 Traction-Terminal Bldg., Indianapolis, Indiana; C. J. Broughton, Room 412 Merchants’ Doan & Trust Bldg., Chi cago, 111.; Geo, A. Hall, 2nd Floor. 125 Second Street, Milwaukee. Wis.;: E T. Holmes, 315 Jackson Street, St. Paul, Minn.; Chas. Pilling, Clifford Block. Grand Forks, N. P : J. M. Mac Inachlan. Box 197, Watertown, S. D.; W. V. Bennett. Room 4. Bee Bldg.. Omaha, Neb.; W. H. Rogers. 125 West 9th Street, Kansas City, Mo.; BenJ. Davies, Room 6, Dunn Block, Great Falls, Montana; J. B. Carbonneau, Jr., 217 Main Street, Blddeford, Me ; J. N. (Irleve, Auditorium Building, Spokane, Wash. This will give to imeading harvest laborers a splendid opportunity to look over the magnificent wheat fields of Western Canada and will give them the best evidence that can be secured of the splendid character of that coun try from the farmer’s standpoint. There will be at least 200,000,000 bushels of wheat harvested within the area of the three provinces above named this year and It is expected that the yield will run from 15 to 25 bushels per acre. Many farmers, this year, will net, as a result of their labors, as much as $8 to $10 per acre nnd many of them will deposit as profits as much as $8,000 to $10,000. The wide publicity that has been given to the excellent crop that Is be ing raised In centra! Alberta and southern Alberta, central Saskatche wan and southern Saskatchewan, and also In Manitoba, will Increase the price of lands In these three provinces from $3 to $5 per acre and the man who w'as fortunate enough to secure lands at from $12 to $20 fier acre will for gratification that he Hclent forethought to in vest, wnue the man who was fortu nate enough to secure a homestead of 160 acres free will also have a greater reason to feel pleased. Notwithstanding the g^at. addition to the acreage this year over las; and the large crop that will be ready for harvest there is no reason to become alarmed that the harvest will not be reaped successfully. There will be a great demand for these low rates dur ing the next couple of months; be sure to make your application to any of the agents above mentioned that may be In your territory at as early a date as possible. Harvesting will commence about the 25th of July and continue for five or six weeks, when threshing will begin and there will be plenty of work until November. Harold Knows the Signs. Five-year-old Harold's older sister was In the habit of making a good many demands on him. Generally her requests for favors, usually the running of errands around the house, were prefaced by what she considered subtle flattery. "Now Harold,” she began one day, “you're a dear, sweet little boy, and you know l lo*e you—” but Harold cut her short, * “Well, Ethel,” he said, earnestly, “if It’s upstairs, I won't go.”—Lippincott's Magazine. _ * Mamma’s Angel Gets Busy.

D., TO THE BAP TIST WORLD ALLIANCE AT PHILADELPHIA, PA. 1 am asked to speak upon “The Ne gro Work tor the Negro." This theme as Indicated is in plain accord with the policy of American Baptiste as well as with my own Ideas as to the most effective w'ay to direct religious efforts among any people. It is not to be understood, however, that there are, or should be any color or racial lines drawn in the kingdom of grace, but rather it is my purpose to give emphasis to the fact that in under taking any great work, the matter or adaptability must be taken Into ac count in the employment or factors. There are no examples set or com mands given by the Son of God that cannot be followed with assurance of success, and in sending forth his dis ciples on one occasiou, he said to them, “Be ye. therefore, wise as ser pents, and harmless as doves.” and in going forth to bear the precious message or the Gospel it is well to consider this saying of the Master so as to be fully able to overcome whatever idiosyncrasies, superstitions, jealousies and prejudices that may be encountered in the non-Christian world Then again, I may be pardoned for saying that In the employment of agen cies, an All-wise God may choose to send a Michael to a Daniel, or send him to defend a Moses against the Imperialism of Satan; or he may send a Gabriel to Zacharias to convey Heaven’s message as to the forerun ner of the world's Redeemer, and while it 1b not given to men to reason why. we know that these heavenly mes sages were adapted *o the specific duties they performed, and there is no ghound for believing one to be in ferior to the other. the late Wendell Phillips In deliver ing an address upon the life and char ! acter of Haiti's military wonder, Tous : saint L’Overture, -said: "The rouse of history will put Pboclon for the Greeks, Brutus for the Romans, Fay ette for France, Haminlen for Kngland, and choose Washington as the brlght fiower of our earlier civilization ” If that noted philanthropist was justified In selecting the honored sons of these great coutnries as their natural and proper representatives, I should not j be too severely criticised for saying that the most logical and acceptable ambassador to bear the message of salvation to the negroes 1b a negro. Let me localize my subject for a I brief moment. For a number of years following the Civil war In this coun try, the great heart of the Christian jjeople north and south went out to the emancipated, and many devout white Christians came among the ne gro people to do missionary and edu cational work among them. Their ef forts met with signal success. But i as the negro people became educated 1 It developed that they preferred teachers and preachers from among their own people; hence the strength or the race was turned towards educat ing preachers and teachers, so as to supply their schools and cburcbc-s The negroes felt, and rightly so, I think, that their ministers and teach ers should associate with them, ' should eat and drink In their humble homes, and do by contact, by social example much that could not be done by anyone In the schoolroom or pulpit alone. Owing to the wider race dis tinctions, this could not become a rule with the white ministers and teachers, and the most that they could do with out sacrificing their social standing among their own people was to preach, teach and baptize the negroes. The negroes as a rule were opposed to the social intermingling of the races, pre ferring to maintain their peculiar ra cial Identity. Hence the demand for negro churches and negro preachers became Imperative. In the matter of heparatlcn in the A live goose is worth more than a dead ancestor. What some lawyers don't know Isn’t worth lying about Even pessimists can see the bright side of a sliver dollar. Prevention la better than a cure. Poverty keeps off the gout A man has to have a strong pull to ^ equal that of a dull razor. A man may like a girl all the more because she seeme to like him less. The affections of some women strike a man as being of the cold ctoragc variety. Poverty Is the only luxury that the rich can't afford. church life of the people on thla con tinent, the blacks have been the bene ficiaries to a very large extent. This baa enabled them In the forty-five years of thler freedom to establish more than one hundred high schools and colleges, twenty-seven thousand church houses with a valuation of forty million dollars. They have also twenty-live thousand ordained minis ters, and more than ten thousand well educated men and women who are teaching in schools and preaching In churches, while others are successfully following the professions of law and medicine and all other vocations Then again, the negroes have enrolled fully titty per cent, of the entire race In this country In Christian churches. This, In my opinion, Is a showing which cannot be made by any other race In so short a time, and Is due largely to the fact that the negro peo ple regard their ministers as their God-appointed leaders, and, as a rule, accept their teaching without ques tion. ' Out In speaking of “The Negro Work for the Negro," we are Including a larger range of thought and territory than that which applies to the negroes of the I nlted States, and we hope to make It plain that the negroes of the I'nited States are the logical Christian leaders of the block people or the world , In the Beginning of the negroes' life as freemen In the I'nited States, a wise Providence directed that the race should make ss the base of Its future the principles of Christianity, taking as guide that scripture wblclT says. "Seek ye first the kingdom or God and his righteousness, and all things shall be added unto you." They believed then and believe now that whatever else Is necessary to com plete a well rounded Christian clvlllga lion must follow In Its time The blacks of South America were liberated more than a score of year* belore freedom came to the negroes of the United States, and 1 mean no* unfavorable criticism when I say that it appear* from present condition* that the black people of South Ameri ca turned their attention principal!) to the accumulation of wealth and secular education, which Indeed are essential elements In tbs well being and growth of any people But «ne*e when used as a foundation will prove a shameful failure. Hence our Mourn American brothers In black are lack ing in those Christian graces of sell control, forbearance and perseverance and the like, which have rendered the achievements of the negro of the l.’ni ted States a wonder of the world What Is said of the blacks of South America may be applied wlih some emphasis to the black people or the West Indies and other parts of the world. It Is a fact that the negroes of the United State* have become the logical leaders of the black people of the wbple world and are today giving the Gospel of the Son of God to those of their own race who were free many years before they were. As further evidence on this t>otnt, and to strengthen the proposition that' the negro la the most acceptable and Ktirceswful ambassador to bear the message of redeeming grace to the people of his race. I submit you an official reference to the great work of the foreign mission board of the National Baptist convention. The secretary of that board in speaking of the glorious achievements of the ne gro Baptist among the dark races of the earth, says: "As negro Baptists we have more than sixty churches and missions In Africa, eight In the West indies, five In South America, with between 11,000 and 12,000 baptized believers enrolled on the books." It should be borne In mind that the negro Baptists have only been or ganized for Torelgn mission work 30 years, and when the»y facts »rw laid alongside the earnest, devout, persistent efforts of the boards among out white brethren to accomplish re suits among these same people. It will be clearly seen that It would have been far better if It had always been recognized that the foreign mis* He who always does unto others as he would have others do unto him is an honest man—but he Is scarce.

One wny to acquire trouble marry it The average man doesn’t add any dignity to the office he fills slon board of the National Baptist convention is the best medium through which to make contributions towards" fostering this particular work, or to have employed negro min isters as missionaries for this work. In making this suggestion we do not assume to ad rise the missionary boards among our white brethren, but to earnestly invite them to con sider first of all the adaptability of the agents to bear the message In the light of the distinctive characteristics to those whom the message Is sent. 1 think it will be readily admitted that one of the most effectual ways of spreading (he gospel is found in the house to house work, and to be able to do this house to house preaching the preacher must be taken Into the full confidence of the people and must be willing to put himself on race equality with the people, or they spurn the message that he brings. So long as there are any to say ho haa gone to be with a man that Is a sin ner, so long will It be necessary to employ great tact In delivering the gospel of Jesus Christ to the different types of the human family.

Asiatic or African, la the kingdom of Got), but all will be one in Christ Jeaus. But until that time shall come, we should work along, recognizing the "metes and bounds" set by an AU Wise Creator, who will in his own time and way level the bills and mountains; and raise up the valleys, until this divi sion of labor and distribution of tasks shall unite to promote the oneness of Christ and his cause the world over. The system of religion which »t profess should be prompted by Chrts than DSttenc# and evangelical diplo roary and not by person or racial self ishness or prejudice. It was said In effect by a distinguished southern churchman some years ago that "If he who is railed the Prince of Peace cannot rid ibe gospel of every taint of selfishness. If he Is not able to make all bis followers one In him, and save to the uttermost all who trust In bim. then he Is unable to save a single being I would add to this significant statement, that If be who Is presented in Holy Writ as one going forth conquering and to coo* ] quer should pause In his triumphant march, to draw a line of distinction between his loyal followers because of race or color, then his kingdom Is unfit for the habitation of men or an gela, and be would be unworthy of the worship of the humblest creature on earth. But we lay no charge at hla door, for he Is the same l^ord over all and ' to all the people, and will In hts own time and way bring about that time when there will be no lines of caste among the children of the great King, but all shall be on* In him. But until that time shall come, when these lines shall be broken down and the mur. sler, race prejudice, has been de-] throned and there shall be but one family recognized among men. and : that, the huuian family It seems to me that the logical man, the accept able ambassador lo bear the message j of redeeming grace to the negro two- , pie.
