ting; Report  of  Retiring President-
Election of Officers for Ensuing Year.
Tbe ailjourneil amiiial geuoral meet'
,        |iig of tlte.Nortli Vancouver Batepay-
:,i tn' Association toOli place iu the city
hall uii Friday night, Ur. II. W. Beevo
Occupying the chair.   At the outset the
Iheirinan announces! that with regard
o tlio mattor of the forosboro lease
Jr. • McAllister hail been approached
tn tbe subject uml Inul intimated that
o was not at liberty to give tho asso-
tlatioii any further pbrtlculars.       It
!,u, therefore, resolvod that the .ju.-..
ion be reforred to tbo incoming elective.
Witb respect tp the post pffl.eo site,
lir. lien.ee tolil the meeting that their
Resolution Inul be Inly ionmrsli'd but
iufficioul  time liusl not elapsed for t
feply to be forthcoming. Concerning
he city sewers, tbo chairman stated
that Mr, Hancs, Hie cjty engineer, had
explained that' the smallest pipo ou
LonBilale Avenue was 8 inches. While
tbis was serving as a main It was mure
ly temporary, tbo actual mains wouhl
be Hi inch mains running cast smi
west.
In reply to a ijucstion aH to whether
tbo house connections wero flinch or
4-inch Mr. Hanes, wbo was present at
the meeting, replied that they were 4-
Inch pipos.
Next arose tbe question of tbe equalization of tin' (it connections, Mr.
Hancs stated tbat under tbe local improvement plans tho owners were paying  the  same  on  each  side  of  the
street. >
ThoSo matters were then formally
roferred to the executive to lie taken
up With tho couucil, Mr. Wright men.
tinning that Mr. llaues' statements
Were very satisfactory) his flguriiigi
having been previously passed by Ihs
provincial board of health.
Mr. W. ,1. Irwin thought that somo
Steps should be taken to provide connections oast snd west at tho intersections.
Mr. Hanes pointed out tbat this problem had been considered liy tbe council
alrei.il> hul'thcy had uot yet tbe funds
available to do it. It would. Involve
about 2,000 feot of sewer.
Tbo president's report was then
heard, Mr. Rccvo's remarks being as
follows:
"Wc feel ou tbe whole fairly well satisfied witb tbo year's work, although
we cannot but think it would have
bt+n'rnorc effective If we had bad the
atlpport of a Isropr number of tbe rate
payors.
Tbe Association wu formed three
years ago and wss strongly partisan,
so much so tbat many ratepayers held
aloof from it. I think, however, tbat
we can safely say tbat 'that feeling
is a thing of the past. Tbo Association has not been controlled by any
clique or faction during the lsst twelve
months. Any ratepayer is welcome,
aud etch member has to equal chance
to make bis influiece felt In our meet
logs. Por this reason 1 hope to sec in
the futul-e a much larger membership,
So tbtt we shall be a more represents
tive body.
Even among ths members thtt we
have there Is too much apathy. Much
of tht work that his Intn done tbit
ytar hi) been carried out by a faith
' (ul few wbo havt eppreciatod tbt fact
tbat ao Assocoation of tbis kind it
an absolute necessity. Tbe sccrtt of
strength nowadays is lu combination
and witb a strong body of representative men watching and discussing mat-
_ tert of municipal government our city
ll likely lo make fewer mistaken than
bave been made in the years that are
put.
Home people think thst we arc simply associated to compltin about
things, tbat go wrong. On the con
trary, our policy bu been a construe
live one iu many mailers. Our prln
ciptl fuhefion ii to supply Iho motive
tower to get tbe ratepayers together
o get ahd give information on matters
of- publje Intersil.
' Wt have heir] a good many wall at
Under) meetings which havt given tht
ratepayers generally opportunities tbey
would have otherwise lacked of letting
l Information oo many subjectt, and
tlso of expressing thtir opinions. I
think public opinion hu bun guided
ity tbe results of our nuttings oa lev-
tril important Milters. Tht elyio ao
boritiei bava lllo accepted many of
bur recommendations and wt hnve tup
(lorterj and misted than by mt mo-
utiont lo several matters of consider
kbit public importtnrt,
fit bave thoroughly revised tht constitute M by-Ms il tin Mtotlk-
lion end guy organlmstlnn will therefore
be on a bttttr bull thtn beteti.

millee havo wqykod harder than the
niciuberfl generally have 'any idea qf. I
wish to take this opportunity uf I hank
Ing them fdr the support they bave
given mo during my year of o|lico.   .
Tho th|nkl of the association pre
particularly due tu afi'imtefnjft, Mr.
Poult, who has done yeoman service
In attending to I very largo amount
of .iirr.-Mjjiiii.li.Miee and keeping comic!,! records of-,euf transactions. He
is also very kindly allowed us ths
lisp of his ofiice. for committee meetings wbicb has beon a very great convenience to us.
In s-siiis■lu.-.ioii, I would like lo mention a few matters which I commend
to your earnest and watchful attuutl.on
during the coming year. The principal ono is that qf the management of
iho city ferries, which is undoubtedly
tho most serious problem uow before
the cituans Df North Vancouver,
Another is tbp question pf Hie street
car service in which there is room for
considerable itnprdveiqcnt. A very Important subject that is likely to conic
before us during tbo next two or three
years is the policy of this city ip connection with grades, sewers and public works generally. Afler all the pub-
|ic attention nnd oxcitcment which
have been dovulcsl to lbc grades one
would thing that this mailer had bees
settled. Ono might suppposo also, after the preparation of a complete
scheme for sewage disposal, ami after
so much work has been done towards
carving out the plans, that no one
would attempt to upset Iho continuity
of the work or undo what has been
carried out.
With the possible chance of civic
government tsvery year, however, we
thill fin.) it advisable, I think, to con-'
tinuo watching these things very
closely."
A resolution of thanks wis then
pusod to Mr. Kecve for bis services
during tht put year, Mr. Iloult moving
snd Mr. Wright icconding.
The flection of officers- for tbe ensuing year wu proceeded with, somo
difficulty being experienced in fimling
Soma one to tucced Mr. Boult ti secretary. In the end, Mr, K. McKenxic,
Wu prevailed upon to act temporarily
ind take Uie uiiuutcs of the night's
meoling. The officers •■!■-. i.--i were u
follows:
Preildent-Mr. H. C, Wright.
Vice -President-Mr. W. L. Boult.

The new preiident, Mr. Wright, referred to the imallnesi of Ibe meeting
which yu probably in consequence of
counter attractions in the city the!
nigbt. He urged tbtt tbe members
should mtke evtry effort to reader the

CANADA'S AGRICULTURAL
LAMM
Home very interesting statistics with
reference te the area of the agricultural Unds ef Canada ere giveu by
Dr. William Saunders, director ef Do-
minlnn Experimental Farms, ip tbe report for the yeer 1910-1911, of tbe
Spleet Pteqdfng Committee on Agriculture end Colonisation of the Dominion
House ef Commons.
Dr. Saunders spoke as follows)
In my twenty-five yesrs of busy occupation in trying to acquire u thor-
pugk e knowledge aa possible of Can-
idltn agriculture in all its aspects,
there Is one idea which has impressed
i)e most profoundly, end tbtt ia tbe
enormous eitent of the agricultural re
teurcea of thii country. During thit
period i| hat been my privilege to
travel some thirty times or more over
the settled area lying between tbe At
Innti.' end the Pacific and to study its
i iiudiiiiiii:. and possibilities. Although
the impressions on my owu mind bavo
been deepened from year to year during my annual or semiannual visits, 1
And it very difficult to present the for
unliable figures which are required to
meet thie case iu such a way aa to
admit of tbeir being grasped so as to
be underetood.
Compared witb the resources in minerals, forests, fisheries, etc., agriculture
far outweighs them all. Although a
very small portiou of the total laud
area in Canada has yet been laid under
tribute, tbe returns to the nation in
agricultural products exceed those frum
ell other sours j-.-.
The epproxlmale land surface (exclusive of the water areas) in the several parti of tbe Dominion ire giveu
in official document.- as follows:
Eastern Provinces      Sq. Miles   Acres
Ontario      219,850   149,676,000
Quebec       344,450   280,(48,000
the person wbo has sought to inform
himself somewhat as to tbe agricultural possibilities of tbis province will
nevertheless find it difficult to evoid a
conviction tbat tbe computation fajls
to dp justice to British Columble.
Even at this comparatively early stage
of tbe development of the province
tbat are already actually surveyed approximately four million acres of eg
riculturel lauds eud the provincial government has placed some 80,000,000
acres under reserve for agricultural
purposes, to be sold direct to tbe bona
fide settler without any referenee what
ever to tbe very large areas whicii re
main available for purchase upon the
part of tbe general public without reference to actual settlement. When
it is further considered that the hillsides aud mountains of the province ere
to a large degree admirably adapted
for fruit growing, for grazing and for
other purposes akin to agricultural pursuits, it will uot be difficult to arrive
at the conclusion that had the estimate
placed the agricultural lands of British
Columbia as say, three times 24,000,000
air.--, it could not be considered as
auy other than a reasonable computation.

PROVINCES PBODUOINO
SHINOLES
The production of shingles Increues
steadily in Canada ami in a bulletin
to be published by the forestry branch
of the department of the interior this
is shown together with the relative
importance of the provinces for llllo.
Compared with the Canadian lumber
cut, the entire shingle industry
amount.',i to less thin the value of
each of the five most Important species—spruce, white pine, Douglas fir,
hemiib'k and cedar, during 1810, Cou-
lidered separately, the shingle produr-
ion assumes considerable importance
especially in British Columbia. This
province is fir in aiivance of the eastern provinces as a shingle producer
and made up approximately half of th'e
i mm,han llllo production- of nearly
two billion shingles worth over three
and a half million ilollars. Over one
p.ari.-r uf Ihe shingles were manufactured ip Quebec, where the five hun-
ired and thirty nine million pieces reported were an increase of sixty five
per cent, over the 1009 amount. Ontario and New Brunswick produced
nearly equal omounts in llllo, one tenth
of the cm.„,nan pmdin Inn. being from
each of these provinces. Ninety-eight
per cent, of the total production wu
in Ihe ubove four provinces, illhnugii
shingles are made in every province of
the Dominion. Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Prince E<lward Island, Alberta and Manitoba together produced two
per cent, of the total. The average
price of shingles in 1910 was (1.30 per
thousand, the values ranging from (1.51
for shingle.- iii Nova Scolia lo (2.27 In
Saskatchewan.

Here—Montreal Burprieed at Discovery ef Drastic Blue Laws.
Montreal, Oct. .'list.- Huciprucily in
water is the next question of interim-
tional importance te worry tha minds
ef legislators here end in tbe I'nited
States. Unlike tbo recent reciprocity
csmllict no general elections will he
necessary tp reach a decision end nu
political party will riso or fall on the
result.
The whole matter will be settled by
the International Waterways (lornmls-
sion composed of three eminent legal
lights from this country end throe
from the Wales. Ono meeting has al-
ready been held in Washington for
organisation, purposes and a further
session will be held shortly.
The chief questions et issue concorn
the division of water at Niagara for
power purposes by manufacturers uud
others es both sides, of the line, the
diversion of tho mil its et Bt. Mary's
rivor iu Alberta, a most intricate and
interesting phase of international
rights, and tbo damming of tbe St.
Uwrenco rivor at the I,ong Sault lin
pids, i
Decision on this lest question is probably the most important to tho Dominion as a whole. When Mr. .lamea W.
Bickey, tho water powor oxpert ami
engincor, let it bocomo kuown tbat he
had fallen asleep on one of tbe historic banks of the good old si. Lawrence
and dreamed a dream, other engineers
smiled  et  bim  iudulgontly  and  told
Iiiiii   to   Wake   Up.    Tlio   drcuiil   was   so
stupendous that, at first telling, it
seemed impracticable.
Since tbon the dream lias beon
worked into blue prints and maps, figures and reports, until today government eugiueors of both Canada aud the
United Wales evolved ono of tho most
wonderful, if uot the most wonderful,
power producing propositions in tbe
world.
In a word it is proposed to harness
the Long Sniili Hapids, turning their
thousands of wild horses into housti
of burden for the peoplo who live
aloug their shores. As the Bt. I.uw
renco at tbjs point ii an international

developed pn tha 0»ne.|i»n side piprerf
(rem sentimentality   than  anything
else-   Hineii then tbo public has   had
en pppertpnity to study the plsns end
it Is safe to say that to.luy there Is uot
e town between Cornwall sbtl. tyke
Ontario that is not favorably disposed
tn the idee. Tba development pf this
enprmous amount of water ppwer will
moan tho bringing ta life pf uew industries. Now industries will mean new
towns, and mere prosperity to tbe old
ones, Kvon tho farmers are talking
pf harvesting their crops by electricity
when the Long Sault is completod, but
this, of cpurse, must remain talk until
science has advanced another step or
two.
Ohesp Living Champion
Montreal Is at preient entertaining
tho uetionel chempion in the art of
keeping tbo coit qf living down in tlio
person of S. 'I'. Fernsworth ef Chi-
cegp. Accprding tp tho itemised report of tbo coat of living commission at Indianapolis his expenses for
a year totalled ♦82,3.1, a figure eo low
as to entitle him to first place, Mr,
Farnsworth is not here to show how it
was done, however, but to advocalo a
plan for tbo roliof of farmers with unsold crops on tboir bauds. When lira
/.il succeeded in borrowiug ♦70,01)11,-
000 to' bold an enormous surplus of
coffee Farniworth was heard from lirst
aud ever since tbou when the limelight
revealed him ho has boon cheerfully
advocating a clearing house system
by which unsold crops could bo available as caah. Ilis plan is that fanners
shall convoy to a "clearing house
bank" their growing crops and make
tbis credit at the bank subject In
check. The financing of tbo inline
crop in the Wales is to be accomplishes!
ih a mannor similar to the one Funis-
worth so long has urged for tbo relief
of tho general farmer from the exactions of the iniddloman anil the fluctuations of Speculative markets. Koch
cotton grower may deposit his cotton
iu a warehouse ami borrow on his receipt until be can sell his cotton at fifteen ceuti por pound. Farnsworth's
plan goes further in making possible
tlio checking against values of growing crops held by a "clearing huusu"
bank,, cooperative buying to be done
by a central concern on checks of these
same county banks.

a pastime pr p scientific ileinnustratioii.
A merry war has boen raging over this
point if the promoters pf u recent fly

nu (Sundays am) charged uilinis
sinus. Tbe church forces immediately
began a crusudn to prevent such
flights. Tbo law specifically probiliit
on Sunday public games or contests
tp which an admission is charged am)
en this   point Hie clergy took   (heir
Stand. The promoters poinlcil put that
tho law wai passed in 1883 when flying
was uuaiiiiwii,und naturally seys nothing concerning it. Moreover, they
arguo tbat the exhibition la purely a
scientific end cilucationul demonstration and 1 here fori' cut ii i-l v logal. The
matter lum mil yet been decided hut
the controversy has served to show
that the ptibllc in its jgnoranco of the
laws commits violations'by the .thou
sand evory Sunday. The law prohibits
playing, and woro It rigidly enforced
ui this respect, it would probably terminate tho rcsrs'iilion of youngsters in tho front yards, nursery or
barns, but also deprive their seniors
of Sunday golf, tennis and other
games, giving this city Humlays so

THE ENOLIHH 8FABBOW
A contributor to the Canadian Farm
says 1
Fow of the nuisances confronting
the Canadian farmer can ei|ual the
Knglisli sparrow. It is one pf the
greatest pests, especially in the vicinity pf towns and cities. The town
provides a nice placu to spond winter,
place dun1 limy can live comfort
ably by working amongst tbe littor on
the streets, in the lanes, backyards,
nnd around Ihe outbuildings. Many
claim that this is a strong poiut in
their favur. i'crbapi it is, but most
cities do tbeir own scavenging and do
not rc.piirc the assistance pf tbe
sparrow.
Let us follow llii'in in the spring,
when tbey migrate to the country.
They solect the best nesting places,
driving out many of our moro useful
song-birds, whicii may have ensconced
themselves thero previous to the arrival of the sparrow. This is one point
Worth iiuliiigi never will you see the
sparrow and other birds living peace
lily together. So meddlesome ii tbe
spurrow, that be will drive out any
other class of bird which dares to
show itself near bis abmle. For this
alone he deserves severe criticism, if
not  complete annihilation.
The Work of Distribution
loiter tbeir real work uf destruction
begins. For a' whilo in Ibe spring
there is no crop upon whicii to feed
so tbey hunt among thu litter surrounding the buildings, ou the manure
heaps, etc., catching-a fow insects iu
the interim. When Ibe crops begin to
ripen Ilie trouble commence!. Bach
and forth tbey Ily between lbc buildings and the Acid. When tboir attention is distributed over large fields
tbeir work is not noticed, unless the
farmer is moro observant tban usual.
The aggregate loss due to tbo spar
row in Ontario alone amounts to thou
sands of bushels of produce earh year
ami so sapidly dp theee birds increase
that aa a nuisance tbey are becoming
mure pronounced. If tbe good wife's
chickens, or the neighbor's pigeons
did so much damage there would be
war in Ihe camp at euce.
For the destruction of thie peit,
there ii no tine like Hie preient.
The barns are now well filled witb hay
and grain and 11 tbe sparrows generally roost 011 the purlloee end beams ef
thl barn, it wpuld be comparatively
eaiy In reach tbem. Jut at dusk er
■fter dark, raid their mnsis, destroy
ing both birds md ueiti. Tbii treat
ment, combined witb free uie of the
gun, wpuld rid eny locality of theio
birds.
If tbe farmeri could co-operate with
the authorities of the towne aud-run
a rempaigu of deetruetion in the winter, the work might be still more em-
ily acrompliibed. Bid the country of
these pests and leave room for the
better clan of birdi.

HOW MBS. BOBDEN HELPB WITH
THE PBEMIEB'S SPEEOHE8
An interesting glimpse of tbe Can
.■i'l in is premier's wife ib obtained in au
interview which Mrs. Borden roceutly
granted to a pressman, and in tbe
course of which she related the follow
ing i'u. . ilisli-: )
"A girl came to mc from one of the
newspapers, and asked me for a short
interview. She drew her chair up
close to mine, so Mr. Borden would
not hear her questioning, perhaps; be
was at the I ther end of tbe room,
writing. She leaned over toward me,
very confidentially, ami in a half whis
per asked if it was true that 1 helped
Mr. Borden write his specchci. I' ro
plied thai it v.:n,. The effect of this re
ply waa marvellous. She became more
confidential than ever ami edged a lit
tie closer. 1 could see Mr. Borden
make un uneasy move at the end ni the
room. Evidently his wife was not to
be trusted with a newspaper rcpresen
intisi' "Would yon mind telling mc
iu what way you help your husband
write hia apeechcat" the asked almost tremulously, so great was ber ex
citemenl. "Nn, I don't miud telling
you in tlie least," I added. "I try
to keep the house perfectly quiet. 1
aet a8|» go-between for all who have
uo legitimate claim ou his lime and fry
to give him as much time as possible
for writing liis speeches." That girl's
face positively showed chagrin when I
finished."

Subplr  Disturbed  «jr  Shot  Wriiigh
A startling occurrence took place In
Moodyvillo ou Saturday night. Its
perpetrator, une John McNsry, Is now
languishing In the colli at the city hall
pondering on hll alleged misdemeanor
and awaiting judgment. It appears
Unit on the evening in question tbe occupants of a bunk-house were at supper, whon with great suddenness a shot
WSs llred outside aud a shell whined
through the window and buried itself
in the wall oposite, only missing Um
best) of a woman by a very short
space. Those at supper were priuclp
ally Swedes ami these rose Instantly
and hurrying nut found MrNury with
a discharged ride his bands, He denied having fired, the shot. The Swedes,
nevertheless, eseorted him forcibly to
the cily hall where he is being detain
ed until tbe provincial police take ae
tion. Ou being searched ho was dis
covered to have iu his p ossession two
live shells.
THAKKSOIVINO DAY
The clerk of the weather was iu ex
cellent humor yesterday). Meal aut
iiiiiii weather prevailed and the day was
spent pleasantly hy young and old. A
goodly number, indeed, sat under the
trees for quite lengthy periods read
ing in their uewspapers of the snow
which is covering other portions of
Canada. Apart from the religious as
poet of the day, it was indeed au oc
casiou for thankfulness in regard to our
climatic aslvunlagcs. Throughout the
lay there wb» a steady influi of vis
iters. The city ferries carried in all
Viiu persons ami the li. 0, Electric
cars were crowded ut all hours with
smiling people, A great proportion of
these mude for Capilano where the ho
tels did excellent business. A constant stream of sutuuioliiles purred and
throbbed and shrieked between the
hotels ami the ear terminus, some of
them, it may as well be stated, Iravul
ling st a much too rapid rule tor tbe
safely of the pedestrian public. ,11 is
impossible to estimate how many feast
ed their eyes upon the ravishiug beau
lies of Capilano. Ou every side were
admiring groups, ami many cameras
were levelled, some ambitious experi
meiitaiisls pointing their kodaks down
into the canyon.
All over Nortli Vancouver and dis
trict holiday spirits prevailed. The car
service to l.y nu Valley was well utilin
nl, innumerable persons journeying thi
ther to admire the creek and the canyons. Others occupied tlie day by
striding afield iu other directions and
marvelling at the steady growth of
North  Vaueouver.
On Ihe other ham! there was eousid
eraldc temporary emigration, many
citizens crossing lo Vancouver to wit
ns'-. the start of the (iold Seal long
distance race, Ihe Vancouver Hunt
Club's initial meet ami oilier events of
interest.
The deeper significance of the .layby no means passed unrecognised, The
local churches held Thanksgiving services which were well attended, the
oflicisting clergy giving addressee appropriate to the festival. Several
guilds in association with Ihe cburchei
convened ind formed pleasure parliei,
returning in the evening laden with
maple leaves and siuging impromptu
part songi.
It is needless to voice the opinion of
the younger generation. The fact
that they were enjoying freedom in tbe
open air at a time when they would
be ordinarily ilttiug at- their icbool
deiki wai sufficient lo render Ilie day
one of rejoicing. Many were tbe tired
young heads on Monday uight! Aud
there are probably a number of ■ Iui
drcn who are still wondering why Tues
day cannot also be a Thanksgiving
day!
j   THB TBUTH ABOUT DUST
Dust would not be possible were it
not for the fad that matter is almost
Infinitely divisible, ll has been e»li
mated that an average puff uf smoke
from a cigarette contains about four
ilii.u-i.inl us,Hi,sn. >,f particles of dust,
A singli grain of Indigo will give
color lo a ton of water.
A few grains of fluorescein, a sub
stance derived from coal tar, will pro
dure a distinct fluorescein'?, shining
with a yellowish green light wh
strongly Illuminated, in a hundred tons
of water. To produce this reiull Ihe
fluorescein must he divided into count
less billions of particles.
Kvcry conceivable substance enters
into the composition of dust, fn streut
dust mty be found bile of iron and
steel Iiiiiii tbe lyres of wagons, hone
iboes, and tbo nails of our own shoes,
bid of leather'from haraesi, frag-
nunti of weed, cotton, silk, stone, gold,
silver, clothleg, wool, hair, animal excreta, various orei, tin, paper, clay,
isod, mouldi, bacteria—in fact, every
thing uuder the sun.

D. l. tit. We property lies directly
north of the property wjilclj was nib-
divided sud soli) last year by Um vendors in the preient Instance and
through   which   the  (Iran.I   Boulevard
was extended at that time. The southern boundary of the property lies jo,
the form of a crescent and the geniral
situation gives a considerable* olive-
tion above surrounding blocks commanding an unobstructed view of'the
Inlet,' English Bay, etc. The property
will be known as Teuipeo Heights, the
name bejqg borrowed from a well
known South African valley of that
name, and will lie subdivided and placed on the market at bii early date.
Mr. 0. G. I'almer, who recently purchased the interests of Ur. Party
Ward lu the firm is a colicitor in (he
Supreme court of South Africa, having resided for a number of years in
tbat country. His legal training will
therefore prove of groat value to the
firm ami their clients.
Mr. Burmester returned recently
from an extended visit to the old etun-
try and arrangements have been completed for the investment of large sums
of Oerman and of English money
through the firm. Application has likewise been made by them for the general agency for a luge and wealthy
slock ami mortgage company. It is
the intention of the members to develop the business on a largo scale
along all lines of real estate ami finaii-
L'lal operations. They bsve unbounded
faith in the future of North Vancouver
and expect that a very large proportion of their enterprise will be located
here.

According to tho British News of
Canada, Ihere is in Manitolni a poet
who knows Ihe wesl—Hubert J. fl.
Stead. He has just published a volume
of verio," Prairie Born" that contains
tbe ipirit and life of western things
How far from the old worM they are
you may judge from Ihis:
"We   have  smelt   the   curing   wheat-
fields and the scent of ncw-mawn
ley;
We have  heard   the   binders clatter
through the dusky autumn day;
We   have   leen   tho   golden   stubble
gloaming through the misty rain;
We have leen the plow-streaks widen
as they'turned it down again;
Wc have heard the threshers humming
in the cool September night;
We have seen the dark procession by
the strawpolei' eerie light;
We have   beard tbe   freight    train's
groaning, slipping, grinding on the
rail,
And  the  idle  trace-chains jingle  ai
tbey jogged along tbu trail."
