"The m.tt.ri to whlcb you reler are

tbe English people very oomervaiiv.
and im-lineii to go on in the way tliey
have always goue 011. It would be a
good idea for them to take more interest in the vi'iiy oilier countries, ami
.specially Ibe other parte ol Ihe Empire,
do things, and by studying their want!
and conditions, adapt their niethotle to
them. For instance, I do not re. why
there should not be a common currency
for Great Billelt', Canada and Aus
tralia. It would be a great convenience
•nd tend lo promote trade and communication. For thii ud other pur
pole!, an Imperial Bund Bank might be
organized. Thli ii .Imply an llinitra

himself was returning io the somhwesl
-and his ranches on the afternoon express.
The vessel was gliding from tbo dock,
.nnd the young people rushed to the mil
enjoying tho amazement on friendly
fnees nt sight of Nell situ ou hoard.
Mr. Humphreys wns not looking nl tho
.crowd on the pier, but ut .luck linn ler,
studying bim with the keen, calculating glance of a nimi of business, nnd
jet In tlmo his glance softened, und ho
took Ihe young mini's arm Impulsively.
"Come along, .lack, and we'll mnko

New York. Girls, wben you gel t hrotlgll
waving those absurd lings nud have
wiped your eyes, go down to-tbe saloon

trnvagant admirers have sent you."
Rut the two men did not turn right
ln to sec cither the captain or tho pilot.
They walked to tt deserted corner of
thc boat its if by mutual consent, and
the elder mnn began Beiiteniiously:
"lOver been out west, Jack?"
"No, sir."
"Then you don't know whnt grub
Btaklngls, do yon?"
"I've n pretty fair Idea, Mr. Humphreys."
"Well, Jack, my hid, I tliltilc I'll grub
stake you In this deal. 1 believe tbe
Investment will pun out nil right. If
you keep things running smoothly
while I'm gone, you'll have an Interest
In the concern when I come back.
Thnt ought to put you on your motile."
Hunter tried to sny something, hut
tlm words choked him. Hu looked hia
"There, there. Don't make promises.
.Work,   And 1 might u well bt frank
enough to sny thnt, while I like you, it's
for ihe girl. I knew her mother—years
ago." Then with a sudden chuuge of
rummer mid something that bordered
closely on a wink he added, "Now for

"Do you really think it could be arranged?"
"Arranged?   Of course it could."
"Indeed, Nell, I think you might. It

A gray haired man turned nwny
from a couple of reporters to whom ho
hud been Insisting that he wns taking
his two duughtcrs around the world
purely for rest and pleasure nnd that
he had not tho slightest Intention of
Blurting ti branch house nt Calcutta,
"Dour mo, whnt Is nil this excitement about? Wbo must go whore?
Blanche, there goes another bunch of
American Beauties. I witgur they nro
from ono of those callow college boys."
"Ob, bother the flowers.'.' exclaimed
a petite blond, bugging the iirm of
stately Nell Brome. "We want Nell
lo stay on board with ns as far ns the
pilotbout goes and then come buck on
that   Do sny she must!"
Mr. Humphreys smiled into the eyes
of Nell Brome, but something he saw
there mnde his heart contract suddenly. He hnd seen that heart hungry
look In ber mother's eyes years ami
yours before, und it had changed the
Whole current of Ills life. But perhaps
It bud been better after nil. And fiuit
other Noll hud never known whnt it
cost him.
"Pupa, for heaven's sake, ure you
ash-op?   There goes the bllglo!"
And the spoiled younger daughter
hung convulsively on her friend's arm.
The man spoke hastily us one roused
from a dream.
"Of course she shall go with us-to
the ends of the earth, If she likes."
Then In a gentler tone: "ft can be easily arranged, my dear girl. And tbat
you may feel entirely comfortable in
the matter I'll keep Hunter, too"—waving his band toward bis confidential
mnn—"and he shall escort you hack."
He did not catch the grateful gleam
In .lack Hunter's eyes.
"You nre quite sure 1 can make It,
Air. Humphreys. I must uot disappoint father. Uo will ho expecting me

A silence fell over the group. Of
course  they  all   understood.   Arthur
The Inst farewells hnd been spoken.
The Humphrey girls had clung tearfully to Nell as their lust link with tbe
homeland which had* become inexplicably and suddenly dear lo them,! the avenues
then pushed her away with messages' puss    before
aud (lowers, consigning her to the ten
der mercies of .lack, the pilot, and a
saucy little tug,
Nell and .lack had been silting in the
diminutive cubin talking of many
things and thinking of but one when
suddenly the girl glanced at her watch
and uttered nn exclamation:
"Where are we? I'm dreadfully
afraid we won't get to town in time."
She rushed on deck and gave a dismayed I'tflo cry.
"Why, we're not going back to the
city at all. We're still In tho Narrows.
Jack, .lack, whatever ahull 1 do? Mr.
Blhckmoro will never forgive my rudeness."
.hick led her back Into the small
cabin safe from Inquisitive eyes.
"Do you really care, Nell, whether
he ever does forgive you?"
Her honest eyes fell before his.
"Father—you know how he feels"-*-
"Whnt I want to know is how you
feel. Are you willing to wait? Oh,
Nell, .Mr. Humphreys is going to do all
sorts of things for me If only you'll
wait.   This was his plan"—
lie stopped guiltily, ami Nell's eyes

The following article is from the
pen    of Mr.    H. G. Clark,    U.S.A., |
Chief of the    Seed Division Depart- :
ment of Agriculture.
If tho farmers of Canada wore ae-
quuintcd with the sources of supply of their root crop needs, und
through which they
reaching them, they
would be a great deal morn particular when making their purchases.
Practically all thu sued for our
root crops is grown in foreign court- ;
tries. However important it mny
bo that the seed for such crops bo !
grown in the country where it is j
wanted for Bowing, the cheap labor ;
in those European countries, which ■
havo become tho seed gardens of the
world, has made the seed growing ■
! Industry unprofitable to Canadian :
I /aimers or seed specialists. j
Our supply of foreign grown seeds I
is bought and imported principally
by our  larger seed firms. They may
make their purchases either by paying ,
a commensurate price to reliable 12u- ■
ropean seed growers, men who grow '.
seed from selected   pedigreed    stuck.
or, they may buy seed at a     much
lower price—seed thut is grown    Ijv ;
men    whose chief aim has been    to
produce     a large qutintlty,     Independently    of the quality    of     tho
crop it will produce.     In the former case the seed is grown from    selected plants—from    roots      which
have    an ideal    sue    and     form,
and are known    to be true to name.
For instance, un ideal turnip     is
one   having a small neck, nud    top i
growth.     Such a root when planted    will  produce     a comparatively

round the harbor until tbey pick up an
Incoming vessel. That's only business,
you know," he added hastily. "It's
entehiug money coming and going,
don't you see? And by the time we do
catch a vessel I reckon the afternoon
express will be headed toward Pittsburg: that's nil,"
"Ob, .luck, you're so clever!" This

before the Drome residence and n
soinewlint nervous damsel was restored to the bosom of ber scandalized
parent, .laid-: Insisted upon making the
explanation, and bow well he did It
hut the seed from such a root is
apt to produce a crop like thu
mother root which was planted. On
tho other baud a small turnip having several root prongs, nnd an
excessive growth of top coming from
two or three separate neck growths,
will transmit its like through Iho
seed to tho next crop, Hoed can
be grown from such roots much mnro
cheaply thnn from selected roots,
because, in the first place the mother roots are culls, and are not ns
valuable for feeding, and consequently; thoy will produce a much larger
quantity of seed.
During the lust ten or lift eon yoArs
the seed trade has, to a great extent, been passing from the hands
of seedsmen who devote all their
time to a study of seeds and the
seed trade, into (he hands of local
dealers. Unfortunately, fair competition In tho seed trade, is practically impossible, since thc appearance of most commercial seeds is

clump of leaves near the spot where
small birds are accustomed to gather,
and whon they nre enjoying themselves In their own fashion wlll suddenly frighten them almost to death
by screaming out like n hawk. Of
course they scatter in every direction,
nml when they do so thc mischievous
rascal gives vent to n cackle that
sounds very much like a laugh. If
he confined his pi-auks to such Jokes
as this, however, he would not be such
a bud neighbor to birds smaller than
hluifidf, but when he amuses himself
hy breaking the eggs In their nests and
tearing the young to pieces with his
bill he becomes a pestilent nuisance,
It is well to mention, however,
that through the progressive spirit
of some reliable seed houses a limited trade of the best stocks of root
crops seeds has been fostered, and
there Is little dltftc.iiIty experienced
among Intelligent farmers, in getting the best quality of seeds
provided they go the right way
about it, and willing to pay a com-
inoiisurato price. But much of tho
root crop seeds sold in Cun-
I ada ore retailed to the far-
1 mer at a price quite as low us
| our Canadian seed houses hu-vo
to pay reputed European seed
growers for tho best seed from
■elected    pedigreed stock.
Appeals have been made, both hy
seedsmen und farmers, to place such
restrictions   on the    seed trade   as
und tbey often combine their forces to[ will    serve to    withdraw    the
