We have cautioned people against

do no not at times, purchase some vane-
ties of stock and carry ihem on their
own grounds in anticinanon of aiders.
We wrue this without pay or request
even, in justice to Mr. M. J. Henry of
Mount Pleas tnt, Vancouver, who we
know was cheated out of a large order
lately by the false statement that he had
no nursery, and when he gol an order, sent
away to get it tilled. Nuw we have per.
sonally visited Mr. Henry's nursery and
give the flat contradiction to the statement. His nursery does not contain a
large arm of land, bui there are over
five acres of it covered wilh fruit trees
and small plants, shrubs, etc. When it
is understood that from 10,0.10 to 13,0-00
trees can lye grawn on an acre, and at
lea*i fnui times as mmy ,ina:' fruits, nne
can form some idet ofthe m igtutude of

as we have learned trees and plants

This is a merry war wgich tliese two
gieat scholars aie waging. A character
sketch, "Tho Nnnh-West Mounted
Police," wiih several drawings and phi*
tographs, is a mosl readable and pleasing
contribution. Ian Maclaren continues
his analytic character studies of the
Drumtoehty ministers. S. J. Robertson
contributes a Thanksgiving Sketch, and
Colonel Duvar, of Prince Edwards Island
is responsible for a neat short story.
Altogether, the number is a verv valuable
one, and one which should give great
