Agriculture, Ottawa.
As   in   patriarchal days men did not
gather grapes off thorns or tigs iff this-
have good seid. This has long la en
understood by the Minister of Agriculture, but it was much easier to hope for
than to secure a remedy for a condition
of things which certainly called for reform. The outcome of consideration in
this matter led to a collection of Timothy
Ah ike and Red Clover- seeds from dealers n each Province of the Dominion.
A bulletin of the condition of the trade
<n these seeds hag been prepared under
the direction of the Commissioner of Ag-
• i:"lt.ure and Daiiyiug by Mr. G. H*.
. Chief of the Seed Division, and
the information it presents must be
useful to the farmers of Canada.
Every one engaged in crop growing of
whatsoever kind fully understands that
the Bowing of good seed is the most important factor in lhe production of paying farm crops. The results of the analyses of several hundred samples obtained from local dealers and other sources
are in this article set out iu extenso.
The greater part of the seed of Alsik'e
and red clovor sold in Canada, iB gtown
in Ontario. Timothy teed is produced
in limited puantities in nearly euery
province of the Dominion, but mud: ot
the best kind of Timothy is grown in the
Western Ssates, and is obtained from
Chicago and other Western points. In
general, Canadian gro*\n Timothy con
tains a larger percentage of bulled seeds
and weed seeds than imported stock.
This is not as it should be. The laager
ssed firms have specially equipped machines for recleaning grass and clover
seeds, and a great deal of the seed they
handle passes through those machines.
In our next letter we will point out the
results of tbis cleaning process.

A Good Start.
The meeting held Inst, Monday
evening led lo the formation of a
strong local branch of the Provincial Miners' Association. .Some
who were notpreseii'iattlie meeting, having expressed a. desire to
join the Association, had thei
names sent iu for menibershi|
and tlie result was th.it at the
meeting seventy-two members
were enrolled. During this week
other nnines have been sent in to
the Secretary, so that for a beginning we have it, creditable
showing. The three delegate*, e-
lected to go to the Victoria Convention are just the men for thi.
turn in the title of events, representing, its they tlo, both quartz
and placer interests.

District Needs.
In this issue we publish a, list of
what the citizens of Lillooet regard as the immediate needs of
this section.
The people feel the need of the
improvements, nnd the list will
be respectfully submitted to the
local representative in the Provincial Legislature, when he returns from Victoria. The request
for iul enlarged schoolhonse wns,
two years ago, regarded by our
member as quite reasonable, and,
if we remember rightly, Mr. Smith
promised then thnt he would do
his best to secure additional
school accomodation, lint other
projects pushed the school scheme
to one side.' We yet fail to see
the propriety or the wisdom of
.spending the government grant,
for an enlarged jail instead of mi
enlarged school. We maintain
that the 50 children, iu our town
school have it right, to accomodation and comfort, prior to lhe
two or three inmates of the town
tail. What are the facts? The a-
botle of the law breaker and vagabond is perfect m its appointments, while 50 children aie put
into'a building as small as the
jail, with its single inmate, We
venture to say that John China-
mail at the jail, with his* warm
fire, three good meals a, day, and
frequent out-door exercise, lives
under far healthier conditions
than do the school children when
they sit ''three iu a.sent."
Onr friend Rowbottom conies

"Certainly." If yon laid twocows
would yon give ine one?" "Yes."
"If you hnd two pigs would you

come a little close ho   e.   J have

inquired onr whereabouts, lie
Kititl we werenli the mouth of lost
river, nnd nlioul. two inileH from
Robinson j ion .-office, nnd if we
liked l.o lide wil li him he would
tnke us theie. \Ve joyfully itccept-
etl Iuh invitiition uifd sooli niiiv-
etl nt Robinson where everyone
treitted um kintlly. We were both
broke nut I informed our host nntl
ei.il.ertainei'1. of the .net, but tlmt
did not diminish their hospitality. They told us we were the
lirst white men to invnde United
Stales territory tlown Lost River.
1 thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable bed that wns prepared
for me, nnd it will not surprise
yon to know tlmt 1 slept straight
on for nearly 24 hours.
Lb snowed henvily the next two
days, nnd my partner anxious to
see if he could get  the horses en-
giigetl  some men on promise of
pay to go with him nntl endeavor
to get them out.    Ile wns awny
five days but found it impossible
to get to where he supposed the
horses were. On the nextdny my
companion left on the  stnge for
Brewster und  1  wns left behind.
I dug a ditch for a mnn at Robinson, the proceeds ot whicli settled my board bill. 1 then obtained n, job with tt carpenter build-
it house, but not being first-rate
with the hammer mid saw I gave
the job up, us I was nfraitl of an
action   for innnslnughtei   if the
house should full ou its occupant.
Robinson  is the   distributing
point for the Shite Creek mines,
nntl here I met with it pucker, by
the name of I'ete  who proposed
tlmt I should travel with him ns
fnr its Rrewster nnd   gubherjip
his struggling animals. I joyfully
accepted   this offer.    To tlo  the
]>roper thing I felt it my duty to
dress up to the character, nntl
fortunately I secured a suit of
buckskins which fitted my figure
ns perfectly as if they  hnd been
mnde   for   me.   The jacket was
profusely ornamented with fringe
nnd   1 would hnve given something to add ti,  few bears' claws
to the outfit.   However witli the
help of a big revolver lent by Pete
which I strapped on  to my belt,
] cut n, very respectable figure. It
is now my   intention to let my
hair grow long again nntl its in
my  wnuderings  my   moustache
lind grown considerably lean now
posens n. very wild character.
Where   my future wanderings
will lend ine I know not, but—
"Where'er I   roam,  whatever

ceaseless pain,
And drugs at ench  remove a

Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as the year 18*38, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near tbe town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
tbe present time,
A company is now working a gold dredger on tbe Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $.3oU,0l)0, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of ullooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
andeuson lake and bridge river mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of  territory tbat remain  unprospected.

Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of tbe globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here.    Mountain  sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound.    Anglers find tbe lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
In tbe dry belt, and at an altitude tbat renders tbe seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in tbe gardens of the town 1
