strong indication of the trend of

The remarkable success of Mr.
Borden's meeiing, during what
was undoubtedly the most ambitious tour ovor undertaken by
any public man in Canada, cannot fail to produce u marked
effect on the political sentiment
of the people, particularly in iho
Wesl. Whore there are ns many
Independents us Liberals or
Tho Liberal party will tlml
some difficulty in counteracting
the effect of Mr. Borden's lour.
Outside of Kir Wilfrid Laurier
there is no mun on the government side who occupies such a
commanding pluee In the public
eye as does Ihe leader of the
opposition; and at Sir Wilfrid's
age and in his frail state of
health it is out. of the question
for him to attempt any such trip
as Mr. Borden Is Just concluding.
In the natural order of things
Sir Wilfrid Laurier cannot for
very many more years continue
tho strenuous work of lending
his party, and niter him—what?
Nobody pretends that Mr. Kidding, or any other mom her of
tho cabinet could command, as
premier, anything like tlm
enthusiasm uud i'olllowing in
Quebec und the country general'
ly that Sir Wilfrid Lnurlor Inspires,
Prophesying in politics is not
a safe business. Im! to the
Impartial observer there lire

point to the existence of a pretty
able-bodied feeling  throughout

A Big Crop nf Potatoes.
Editor of Prospeclor.
Dear Sir: 1 am sending yon.
toduy, a sample of potatoes raised
by uie mi n Held near my collage.
The notual urea ol litis pioco of
land is I U of an nere, bill we
destroyed qnllu a hii of the crop
by making a road and laying
waler main's acrossll after planting, so there was, or is less Ihan
4.9 of an acre. On this piece of
land we dug l"li sacks averaging
more Ihan lim pounds per sack,
or about nine tons, over "00
bushels of potatoes per acre
boats lumber don't it. 1
simply had this piece of land
planted to take away the un
sightly appearance of the woods
around my cottage and consequently gave them no attention
except hoeing once. 1 have
always said that this country was
the poorest I ever saw to raise
crops "if one did not plant, but
tbe best if they did." If tho
settlers would raise moro
potatoes etc., and less hell we
would all bu better on".
