Hid Interesting Trip.
Mr. anil Mrs. Jus. Munro and
children returned on Monday afternoon from a visit of two months to
points in the United Stales and
Eastern Canada. Mr. and Mrs.
Munro travelled 8422 miles, visited
sixteen Stales in flic Union, all lho
Canadian provinces as  far  cast as
Quebec, stn|i|ieil at twenty -two cities
and travelled uver llftoon difforent
lines of ruilwuy. Tholr trip took
them to Chicago, New York, and
other largo American cities as well
as to many ol lhe famous points of
interest throughout tho Stales. In
Mr. Minim's opinion, Salt Lake
City, Utah, is the olcanosl anil most
beautiful of all oltlos visited, Delightful weather favored the travellers nt all points except Kansas,
where tho beat was intense. Thc
most delightful climate was experienced at Colorado and Colorado
Springs. With tlie application of
American push and resourcefulness
Mr. Munro thinks li. C. would bc-
I'niiic a wonderland and a gold mine
with the money already coined.
Scenic resorts with but half the
natural advantages whicli exist even
in a trip to Cultus lake frum this
city, attract thousands of tourists
and produce an income of 840,000
or 850,000 a year to the energetic
promoters. Mr. Minim's very observant nature and his remarkably
retentive memory gives him a store
of facts, figures and information
regarding tlie places and scenes
visited, which together with his
characteristic and pleasing conversational style make an interview with
him a delight.
Inspected Picking Methods.
J. H. Ashwell was a visitor to
Puyallup, Wash., last week, where
lie went to inspect the packing
methods used by the sellers of fruit
in that vicinity. Unfortunately
the weather was decidedly damp
and Mr. Ashwell was nnt able to
to see the berries lieing .tacked for
shipment, although immense quantities were picked for the factory,
which were too ripe an.l soft for
shipment. Tlie Evergreen Blackberry although it may bo black and
appear ready for shipment, it lias
been found that unless the kernels
aro well filled and plump, thc berry
will turn red a few days after lieing
picked. Tlie crop of black berries
had been on for a month antl
another months' picking was still
expected. On the day of Mr. Ashwell's visit at six o'clock there were
about (1500 orates of berries brought
in tlic factory and at nine o'clock
between seven and eight thousand
crates were expected to be on the
lloor of the factory, all for one day.
The price received at the factory
was three and one half cents a pound.
Tlie vines aro trained along wires
two feet apart and about five feet
from tlic ground, in order to facilitate picking tlic same. In this way
it is no trouble for the pickers to
gather the fruit, and goml pickers
can make as high as 83.00 per day.
To givo an idea of the crop they
bear, almost the entire top of the
trellis was covered with berries
in the different stages nf growth.
The iicoplc at Puyallup are showing
what actually can be accomplished
by sincere work in the small fruit
raising industry and are an example
lo growers in tlic valley of the wonderful results that can la- had by
faithful work.

Rate of Growth Studied in Canada and
United States
Tlie aspen poplar, frequently spoken of as tho white poplar, is one of
the most common trees all over Canada (ut any rate in that portion of
the Dominion oast of the Rooky
Mountains). ln many purls of the
Dominion it forms quite extensive for-
e .ts (especially in districts that have
been burned over). This fact gives
lit a place of some importance in the
forestry of the Dominion, although it
i. oue of the inferior woods.
Some years ago (in 1906) the For-
eatry Branch of the Department of
fie Interior mado a careful survey of
tlie Turtle Mountain forest reserve in
Southern Manitoba, on which this
poplar is by all odds the most plentiful tree. As a result of investigation
on the basis of data collected during
lliis survey, it was estimated that, if
the poplar were allowed to grow to
the age of forty years, tliere would be
an average growth, for the Whole of
lhat time, of ono cord per year on a
fully stocked acre. At the end of
that time there would be standing on
each acre about 850 trees, of an average height of 45 feet and an aver*
age diameter, at 4Vj feet above tho
ground, of i* inches; the.se would yield
.some 40 cords of wood.
Recently the United States Forest
Service published Ihelr Bulletin No.
:»::, entitled "The Aspens." and it is
Interesting to note that their results
come close to the figures made out by
the Canadian survey. Volume tables
given at the conclusion of this bulletin show that trees of the height and
diameter given above will each yield
between one twentieth and one twenty fifth of a cord of wood apiece. Thus
the 850 acres would givo somewhere
between thirty-four and forty-two
cords of wood. Tho average of tho
two amounts gives thirty-eight cords,
a figure nearly the same as that obtained by the Canadians.
As there nre 66,000 acres In the
Turtle Mountain reserve that arc capable nf growing timber. It is a reasonable inference that the reserve
may bo counted on to produce 55.01)0
fiords, or thereabouts, of wood per
yenr. At the low rate of $1 per cord
on the stump, tbls would mean an annual revenue to tho state of $55,000.
Or, to take another point of view it
would give th each inhabitant of the
electoral dial riot of Bourtfl almost
two cords of wood per year.

ln the meantime Dr. Morton's launch
had chugged out of Bell Harbor Into
the sound. Tbe white bow cut the
placid water and broke up the rose-
colored reflections lnio rippling waves
of rose and silver Becked foams.
All about him was a wall of fog.
now abot with a queer pinkish glow.
Aa be abut off tbe power and the
engine ceased throbbing he listened
for some aound to break the alienee
that waa upon the waters.
"This will be a good place to tblnk It
over," he snld to himself and tben realized that be had expressed the craving of his heart—ever alnce Cleo Adams had laughed at hla offer of marriage.
He stared unseelngly into tbe fog,
bla thoughts revolving around tbat
episode of last night
Dr. Morton bnd wooed Cleo Adams
la the ahy way that Is characteristic of
many men of his profession, and when
the time came when be could no longer
withhold his confession of love, he bud
done an unusual thing.
lt was 9 o'clock the previous evening
when lie hud entered his little oill.-e
and sank wearily Into a chair before
bis desk. His housekeeper had left a
aupper for blm and gone to prayer
meeting.   The bouse waa quiet.
Suddenly he picked up ibe telephone
receiver and hold It to bis ear as lis
called Cleo's number. He felt very cool
and professional ns he waited for a
reply from the Adams home.
It came at list In Cleo's low, clear
"Yes?" ahe Inquired.
"Is tbls Miss ireoV" aaked the doctor
"TIUm Is Miss Adnms," ahe replied to
his satisfaction.
"Cleo," he almost whispered, fighting
back the shyness Mini almost choked
his utterance of lhe Important win-as—
"Cleo, 1 love you, denr; could yon
marry ine'/"
Then hud come an Instant's hesttn-
tlon. He was prepared for that, but
hor light, stinging laiigti wns a stunning surprise to him. "No, thank you:'
ahe had snld airily and hung up ths
receiver with a little delimit clatter.
Dr. Morion aat In Iris chair, motion,
less nnd white, until his scandalized
housekeeper hud arisen from hts" bed
and come dowustulrs to Inform him
that It waa past 2 o'clock. Thereumsi
he had shake., himsolf together ntul

before he arose lo t'ulilll the duties of
another day's dull routine.
Now he hnd left It nil behind. In th*
solitude afforded by tils fog he would
battle wltb his trouble and master it.
But be did not reckon with tbe fog.

for a dairy cow: A cow should be fed
all lhat she will eat and digest well,
giving due consideration lo the cost,
digestibility and composition nf tba
food fed. Tlie more palatable the food
the greater quantity a cow will consume. Variety often Increase* palntu*

■the sample market were established
today. Any Intelligent farmer can
■figure out for himself what the loss
•would be to him. were the sample
fnarket established and the cars detained at Winnipeg an they would be
for from twenty-four to forty-eight
hours on every trip, and how much
wheat would be left in hla granary
thst would otherwise be shipped, sold
jind paid for. Remember that It
w mid mean, under ordinary condition**, that one bushel out of every
four Is left on his hands at the close
o; navigation.
Aad why. In the name of ordinary
common sense should the farmer be
put to this lose and Inconvenience?
There Is no reason whatever for he
■tands to lose at every turn. The
only persons who could possibly he
benefited are the men who would
bundle the wheat on the sample mark-
' et, and would mix it and fix it so as
to bring the most profit to themselves.
It 1* to the interests of every farmer to carefully study this sample
market question In all its bearings.
At present, the farmer is safeguarded
on every hand by statutory laws
which are fairly well observed, and
the farmer now has full control of
Ills own wheat on the market. If
he don't like to sell to the local dealer
for any reason, either on account of
grade or price, he ran ship himself.
The railway companies are compelled
by law to furnish him a car in his
turn ;.nd place lt at a loading platform for him. At Winnipeg an non*
-est gra le ls assured him by a government inspector and the wheat ls aold
at a fair market price. In short, he
Is mas'er of the situation.
Under the system of a sample market the oppofllte. is the case. Tbe
fanner i_ muster of nothing. His
wheat rnes to Winnipeg, it sample Is

i-hangt and It is sold for whatever lhe

enjoys . re _aorlflce(l. and his grain is
placed at the disposal of a crowd of
spectators, who agree amongst themselves nnt to bid one against anoUrr.
but tn play Into eneli others hands
for their mutual benefit.
An attempt Is being made to mis*
l ad the farmers on this matter, and
false ideas and spurious :.rguments
are bi ing used to trap the unwary. It
Is the old game of the spider and the
fly. They make the statement that
wheat which Is between grades will
bring a better price on a sample
market for purposes of mixing wilh
lower qualities. This ts a fallacious
argument. The farmer knows by
past experience ihat the only people
to profit hy the mixing of grain are
the dealers, In this regard a recent
interview with Mr. .1. 11. llasliini who
Ih well known throughout Uio west Is
worthy of careful consideration. Mr.
Ilushit.i uiu has just returned from
Kurope states that the western Canadian when' Ih losing lis preeminence

the farmers of tin' west that they |
must ee to It that Ihey send their
best wheat pure to the Old Country If
Ihey wish to retain their hold on the
market am1 secure I he best prices,
lu the lighl nT this, what becomes of
the mixing argument? Two qualities of wheat cannot he mixed without lowering one of Ihem. und In doing so you reduce tlie   standard of all.
It must never be forgotten that tho
men who are seeking to establish a

always sought to exploit the wheat

Some   Fly  Two   Miles   High,   Faster
Than an Express Train
The problem of how smnll bir-ls
were able to manage long flights .'coin
ether countries exercised the minds
of naturalists for centuries The first
man to collect accurate lntotmatlon
on the subject wns the la;* I'err
Oatke. Living on the little Island of
Heligoland. In thc direct routi of migration, a._ entirely devoted tu his
Mil-Ject. he was al'.e to verify for himself many facts which had until thou
escaped notice.
For Instance, he pointed out that
birds on mlgrutton often flow very
high—probably as much as 13.000
feet lover two miles) above the
ground. That they do fly at a great
height has been corroborated by astronomers, who have seen birds flying
across the face of the moon at a
height ot not less than one mile.
Gatke's Ideas on speed were probably exaggerated, but only by a theory
of a tremendously swift flight at a
high altitude could he account for
the fact that certain birds were never
or rarely seen in the countries between their Winter nnd Summer
quarters. For Instance, he pointed
out that the blue throat, which winters In Africa and breeds ln Scandinavia, ls but rarely met with ln any
of tho countries on the line of route—I
Italy, Greece and Southern Germany,
When they arrived In Heligoland
they came ln large flocks, and were
tired and exhausted; also they always
arrived at the same hour—somewhat
late In the morning. He thought It
probable that thoy left Africa at dusk
the previous evening, and by flying at
the rate of 180 miles an hour would
be able to reach Heligoland ln the one
Between 1880 and 1887 the British
Association granted some money to a
special committee for the study of
migration, and by means of schedules
much Information was collected about
the birds that are killed annually at
coast lights. Although many facts
were thus obtained the observations In
tbls respect are almost entirely dependent or) weather conditions. In
fact it may be said that the only
migration that can be actually seen ls
that which has partially failed, for lt
ls only when delayed or hold back by
stormt or fog that birds obviously
on passage are encountered along the
coast or In other places where they
are not usually found.
In Denmark and Germany ornithologists have, been experimenting by
ringing birds nnd having those that
are caught returned to tlm address
given on the aluminum bund placed
on the bird's leg. In this way the
habits of migration, speed, nnd direction of flight and oilier facts are discovered. Storks have given the most
striking results from ringing. Without exception all slorks Hint have
been recovered 111 llie Ilrst Autumn
a'ter ringing hml traveled In a duo
south-easterly direction.
From Hungary to Palestine no ringed birds have been procured, but from
Palestine four have been returned.

Blind Men Now See
Sometimes blindness is entirely due
to Helves. A youug farmer, hailing
Hoih Ohio, hud been stone-blind for
live years. Tho farmer lintl beeu under treatment by muny eminent specialists, anil bail also entered u first-
class eye-hospital, but. no cure'could
lie effected. Tlie doctors were ot
opinion lie wns suffering from paralysis of the optic nerve, u disease considered hopeless. During lust mouth
the blind man begun to suffer very
mucli wtth his teeth, and nt Inst lie
visited a dentist, who advised him In
have three teeth extracted, Worn
out with 11 lung spell of toothache the
farmer agreed! but uo sooner did the
dentist start to draw the second
tooth IIiiiii be Jumped up and ox-
claimed:—I can see! 1 can see Hie
light, the craok lu the window! Ami
turning in the dentist with glee, he added. Joyfully:—I can see you. Tin1
whoio affair seems to have been ni
miracle, us up In now mi seienllsl
has lieen iilile to connect the blindness with tooth. Tn n common-sense
person the blindness appears lo have
been ll ease of 'nerves.' Possibly
lhe nian reared his sight was falling
and worked himself lulo losing the
slghl nf his eyca.
Another remarkable restoration of
sight was the one which happened tn
n i-nr-'iniiHon. He had been unable
to see tint, of Ills right, eye for ovor
Illl years, but during one of lhe flcrre
gales which happened at Raster he
had to cross a bleak common with
the win! lu bis face, nnd a quantity
nf dust got Into both his eyes. Ills
right eye felt It the most, and begun
lo stream with water. To try and
relieve the pain the stonemason rubbed that eye gently hut continuous) r
for some seconds. When he reac ed
home he discovered to his joy thut he
had perfect sight in both his eyes
Possibly many years ago a smsll
piece of stone had got Into his eye
and the extra flow of water and du?t
had enabled lt to work Its way out.

Shearing Sheep With a Machine
Shearing sheep with a machine ts
practical for most farmers, saya the
S ml he .i Agriculturist. As with any
other machine, a man should have
some knack with machinery to do the
best work. The greatest advantage
in using thi:; method of shearing is
t'.at y„u get practically all the wool.
During the World's Fair at St. Louis
they had a contest between the old-
fashloi ed method of shearing by hand
and tl e newer one of clipping the
sheep with the machine. After the
expert hand t hearer had finished a
sheep the machine would clip about
thirteen ounces of Wool. So the saving of wool would soon pay Ur the
shearing machine.
A man with from 25 to 100 head of
sheep should use the hapd machine,
but with larger flocks the power ma.
chine is more practical. If one's
neighbor raise sheep, they can
install a power plant with a line shaft
to run as many machines as they
wish with a s_mall_ gas engine. When
shearing time conies the? can set' a
day, collect their (locks and help
each other. I have such a plant In
my barn with three machines run
from a line shaft with a loose pulley,
so each machine can be operated or
stopped Independently, as the shearer wishes, by shifting the belt from
the tight to the loose pully. We shear
with this plant, running three mas-
chines, about 200 sheep In a day
with the average farm hands. A
quick, strong young man with practice
should shear 100 or more, while the
expert will turn oft 200 with one machine. Bu*. the average farm hand,
to do a nice job, will average about
75 a c ay.
One of the greatest advantages tn
having a shearing plant with several
machines Is that you shear your
whole flock In a day. thus getting
them back to grass with their lambs.
It you are two or three days shearing
there ls considerable loss to the lamb
crop from keeping them up. Machine
sheared sheep also look much better.

Bicycles In War
A correspondent, Interested In the

the authorities are beginning to take
serious notice of the possibilities Involved ln the use of the cycle In war.
A great advance has been made of

of defence at home, tn proof of which
It ls only necessary to refer to the

and a greater recognition of the mo-'

now 18 motor cycles and 371 ordln-l
ary bicycles,  as against  118 of the,
latter hitherto.     All this Is very encouraging to  those enthusiasts  who
