The recent visit of H. Lowe to Victoria to commune with the directors of
the.Silver Hustler Mining Company,
has been fruitful of good results. Mr.
Lowe has secured a lease and bond on

mine are going to take a share with Mr.
I.owe in exploiting their holdings. Mr.
Lowe waa forme; ly mine manager for
this company, and under his direction
an ore shoot was located from whicli
many cars of $85 ore was extracted, and
it is the intention of the new syndicate
to continuo a lower level to tap the same
vein and do other exploring work.
There is also a considerable amount of
low grade ore in the drills, and lying
upon fhe dumps there is an estimated
1,250 tons of ore which will yield a ton
of concentrate for every ten treated at
the mill. We understand that tbe syndicate are treating with the Idaho Mines
Ltd. to lease tbe concentrator and tramway, and that it is probable this will be

drilled in bard granite, 30 inches in ten
minutes. The team is going stronger
than ever, and if they are beaten, the
winners will be going some. As McGillivray rematked: "The team which
beats us will earn the money and we
shan't begrudge them the victory. But
strange as it may appear to you, we

Hours had pone by, and the clock
hands pointed to twelve, ere Maddy
compelled herself to hear the Btory
Guy had come to tell. She had thrust
him from her nt first, speaking to
him of Lucy, hia wife, and Guy had
answered her back: "1 have no wife���
I never had one. Lucy is in heaven,"
and that was all Maddy knew until
the great shock had spent itself in
tears and sobs, which became almost
convulsions as she tried to realize
the fact that Lucy Atherstone was
dead; that the bridal robe about
which she had written, with girlish
frankness, proved to be her shroud,
and that her head that night was not
pillowed on Guy's arm, but was resting under English turf and beneath
an English sky. She could listen at
last, but her breath came, in panting
gasps; while Guy told her how, on
the very morning of the bridal, Lucy
had greeted him with ber usual
bright smile, appearing and looking
better than he had before seen her
look since he reached her mother's
home; how for an hour they sat together alone in a little room sacred
to her, because years before it was
there he confessed his love.
Seated on a lo\v ottoman, with her
golden head lying on his lap, she
had that morning told him, in her
artless way, how much she loved him,
and how hard it sometimes was to
make her love for the creature second
to her love fnr the Creator; told him
she was not faultless, and asked that
when he found how erring and weak
she was, he would bear with her
frailties as she would bear with his;
talked with him, too, of Maddy Clyde,
confessing in a soft, low tone, how
once or twice a pang of jealousy had
wrung her heart when she read his
praises of his pupil. But she bad
conquered that; she had prayed it
all away; and now next to her own
sister, she loved Maddy Clyde. Other
words, too, were spoken���words of
guileless, pure affection, too sacred
even for Guy to breathe to Maddy;
and then Lucy had left him, her hart-
bounding step echoing through the
hall and up the winding stairs down
which Bhe never came again alive,
for when Guy next looked upon her
she was lying white as a water lily,
her neck and dress and golden hair
stained with pale red life current oozing from her livid lips. A blood vessel had been suddenly ruptured, the
physician said, and for her, the fair,
young bride, there was no hope. They
told her she must die, for the mother
would have them tell her. Once, for
a few moments, there rested on her
face a fearfully frightened look, such
as a harmless bird might wear when
suddenly caught in a snare. But
that soon passed away as from beneath the closed eyelids the great
t"ars came gushing, and the stained
lipB whispered faintly: "God knows
best.   Poor Guy!���break it gently to
At this point in the story Guy broke
down entirely,
"Maddy," he said, "I felt like a
heartless wretch���a most consummate
hypocrite���as, standing by Lucy's
side, I met the fond, pitying glance
of her blue eyes, and suffered her poor
little hand to part my hair as she
tried to comfort even though every
word Bhe uttered was shortening her
life; tried to comfort me, the wretch
who was there so unwillingly, and
who at this prospect of release hardly
knew at first whether he was more
sorry than pleased. You may well
start from me in horror, .Maddy. I
���was just the wretch I describe; but I
overcame it. Maddy, and Heaven is
my witness that no thought of you intruded itself upon me afterward as
I stood by my dying Lucy���gentle, patient, loving to the last. I saw how
good, how sweet she waa, and something of the old love, the boy love
came back to me, as I held her in
my arms, where she wished to be. I
would have saved her if I could; and
when I called her 'mv darline Lucy,'
tliey were not idle words. I kissed
her many times for myself, and once,
Maddy, for you. She told me to. She
whispered: 'Kiss me, Guy, for Maddy
Clyde. Tell her I'd rather she should
take my place than anybody else���
rather my Guy should call her wife���
for I know she will not be jealous
if you sometimes talk of your dead
Lucy, and I know she will help lead
my boy to that blessed home where
sorrow never comes.' That was the
last she ever spoke, and when th...
sun went down death had claimed
my bride. She died in my arms.
Maddy. I saw her buried from nrv
���sight, and then, Maddy, I started
home; thoughts of you and thoughts
of Lucy blended equally together until Aikenside was reached. I talked
with Mrs. Noah; I heard all of you
there was to tell, and then I talked
with Agnes, who was not greatly surprised, and did not oppose my coming here to-night. I could not remain there, knowing you were alone.
In the bridal chamber I found your
bouquet, with its 'Welcome to the
bride.' Maddy, you must be that
bride. Lucy sanctioned it, and the
doctor, too, for I told him all. His own
wedding, was, of course, deferred, and
he did not come home with me, but
he said: 'Tell Maddy not to wait.
Life is too short to waste any happiness. She haa my blessing.' And,
Maddy, it must be so. Aikensida
needs a mistress; you are all alone.
'You   are   mine���mine   forever."
The storm had died away, and the
���moonbeams stealing through the window told that morning was breaking,
but neither Guy nor Maddy heeded
the lapse of time. Theirs was a sad
kind of happiness as they talked together, and could Lucy have listened
to them she would have felt satisfied
that she was riot forgotten. One long,
bright curl, cut from her head by liis
own hand was all there was left of
her to Guy, save the hallowed memories of her purity and goodness-
memories which would yet mold the
proud, impulsive Guy into the earnest, consistent Christian which Lucy
in her life had desired that he should
be, and which Maddy rejoiced to see
The close of a calm September afternoon, and the autumnal sunlight falls
softly upon Aikenside, where a gay
party is now assembled. For four
years Maddy Clyde has been mistresB
there, and in looking back upon them
���be wonders bow sn much  ba.oD.nasM
as sn_ nm- Known couio oe experienced in so short a time. Never but once
has the slightest ripple of sorrow
shadowed her heart, and that was
when her noble husband, Guy, said
to her, in a voice she knew was earnest and determined, that he could no
longer remain deaf to his country's
call���that where the battle storm was
raging he was needed, and like a second
SardanaDalus he must not stay at
home. Then for a brief season her
bright face was overcast, and her
brown eyes dim with weeping. Giving
him to the war seemed like giving
him up to death. But women can be
as true heroes as men. Indeed, it
oftentimes costs more courage for a
weak, confiding woman to bid her
loved ones leave her for the field of
carnage than it costs them to face the
cannon's mouth. Maddy found it so,
but Christian patriotism triumphed
over all, and stifling her own grief,
she sent him away with smiles and
prayers, and cheering words of encouragement, turning herself for consolation to the source from wliich she
never sued for peace in vain. 8ave

she was not lonely, for her beautiful

many weeks afterward, Guy, Sr., sitting in his tent, read with moistened
eyes of a. little golden-haired daughter, whom Maddv named Lucy Atherstone. and gazed upon a curl of hair
she inclosed to the soldier father,
asking if it were not like some other
hair now moldering bnck to dust within an English churchyard. "Maggie"

called the wife of Dr. Holbrook, wbo
had come to Aikenside to stay, while
her husband did his dutv as surgeon
in the army. That little dauehter is a
year-old baby now, and in her short
white dress and coral bracelets she
sits neeleeted on the nursery floor,
while mother and Jessie, Maggie and
everybody hasten out into the yard
to welcome the returning soldier, Major Guy. whose arm is in a sling, and
whose face is very pale from the effects of woundB received at Gettysburg, where his daring courage bad
well-nigh won for Maddy a widow's
heritage. For the present the arm is
disabled, and so he has been discharged, and comes back to the home
where warm words of welcome greet
him, from the lowest servant up to

glances triumphantly at Mrs. Noah,

her dislike of Agnes, had sorely tried

Good Mrs. Noah, the ancient man

have thought of leaving the Ark aa

riotous mob raised against the draft,
she talked seriously of going in person to New York "to give 'em a piece

Dying Words of Some of the World',
Famous Men.
Notbnagel, who died alone In bis
room, noted his own symptoms to the
last A letter to his assistant is said
to have ended aa follows: "Written
late on the evening of July C just after experiencing these severe attacks-
died of calcification of the arteries."
Traube also made observations ou himself to the very end. Locock expressed
a wish to be present at the postmortem examination on himself, and among
Cuvier's last recorded words ls a remark, as his fingers twitched Involuntarily: "Charles Bell ls right: 'Ce Bout
les uerfs de la volonte qui sont inalu-
dlfs.'" Dyce Davidson, professor at
Aberdeen, died Immediately after saying to his class, speaking of the next
meeting, which wns never to take
place, "Four o'clock on Monday, gentlemen; 4 o'clock."
Several doctors have taken their
leave with a blessing to those around
them. Astley Cooper's last recorded
words are, "God bless you, and goodby
to you all!" He had previously said to
his physicians, Bright and Chambers,
"God's will be done; God bless you
both!" adding, "You must excuse me,
but I shall take no more medicine."
Benjamin Brodle was beard to mutter,
"After all, God Is very good." The
saddest of all recorded last words are
probably those of Oliver Goldsmith,
who, when asked by bis physician If
his mind wns at ease, said, "No, It ls
not!" On the other hand, William
Hunter's mind seems to have been full
of bright thoughts at the moment of
death, for he said, "If 1 could hold a
pen, what a book I could write!"
Pasteur and Darwin, though not belonging to the medical profession, are
venerated by It as teachers. Darwin's
last words were, "I am not tbe least
afraid to die." Pasteur was offered a
cup of milk nnd, being unable to swallow It, murmured, "I cannot." He
passed away wiih one hand ln bis
wife's, the other grasping a crucifix.
Lastly are mentioned the last words of
Mlrabeau, which are said to bave been
addressed to a doctor. He wrote on a
slip of paper, which he gave to his
physician, the philosopher Cnbanls, the
single word, "Dormlr." Another account, whlcb may be an expanded version of this, Is that after begging for
an anodyne he said reproachfully to
the doctor: "Were you not my physician and my frleud? Did you uot
promise to spare me tbe suffering of
such a death? Must I go away carrying
with me the regret of having confided
ln you?" This is rather a long and
rhetorical speech for a dying man.���

Japanese New Year Cakes.
An annual event lu Japan ls the
making of the New Year's cake, which
every family must have if good luck
ls to foilow It during the ensuing year.
This cake Is made of a peculiar variety
of rice, boiled and pounded In a great
wooden mortar until it is of tbo consistency of dough. Although the pure
white dough Is often colored yellow
or pink, the shape of the cake is always the same���that of the sacred lnir-
tue Shinto faith. A piece of tills cuke
Is offered to tbe Shinto deities because
It ls of tbe shape of the sacred mirror
which wooed the sun goddess to come
out of the cave where she had hidden
herself ln wrath and thus saved the
land from total darkness. Each member of tbe family takes a band In the
manufacture of the New Year's cake.
Even the baby is carried out and his
baby hand guided ln lifting tbe heavy
wooden mallet for a "good luck" blow.
Enough Is made to last nearly the
whole year through, and It occupies
an important place in the dally menu.���

Queer Fish.
At first thought the electric chair,
which sends the criminal to bis doom,
would seem to be a refinement of Invention possible only to man's genius.
But the electric eel can benumb a
horse so tbat It will drown before recovering from the shock, and the
fiercest fish Is rendered helpless by the
geutlest touch of this creature. Small
wonder these eels flourish in their native waters and seldom fall to find
food enough and to spare!
At any rate, the gentleman angler
casting his fly upon tbe ripple is
unique. Surely no animal can match
the rod and line! Yet there ls a fish
with a long, slender filament drooping
forward from Its head, tipped with a
fleshy, wormlike appendage. The fish
lies quietly on tbe bottom and awaits
a nibble. Soon a minnow makes a
dash for the waving luscious morsel.
The huge mouth openB, nnd���the finny
angler has dined! A veritable Shylock
this, wltb rod, line and bait of his own
flesh and bone!
When the Nose Bleeds.
When the nose ls bleeding never hold
It over a basin or hold the head down
ln any way. Tbis only causes further
rush of blood to the broken tissues ln
tbe nose. The head should be held up
and back, the flow being caught ln
handkerchVefs or cloths. One of the
most effective and simple means of
checking a nosebleed is to press on
the upper lip. Near the undersurface
of the lip runs the artery that supplies
the Interior nasal passages where the
ruptures occur. If this ls pressed, thc
flow of blood ls mechanically checked,
thus allowing the blood around tbe
broken tissues to congeal and seal up
the opening. If merely pressing with
the finger does uot succeed, place a
wad of paper under the Up and fold
the'llp over It, holding tt down tight.
Again, If thi*. does not succeed nnd a

saturate a ;ilece of cotton with It and
apply to the Interior of the nose from
where tr.* l.'eoil flows.

Automobile Accidents
Consul Frank W. Mahin writes from
Nottingham, England, that the secretary of the Highways Protection league reports that, according to accounts in the press, 932 automobile
accidents occurred in Great Britain
in 1907, killing 215 persons and injuring 675. For tiiese accidents and other
motor car offences 2,270 persons were
summoned, of whom 2,046 were convicted. As the number of automobiles
in use is estimated at 45,000, it would
seem that one in about every twenty-
two did something illegal last year.

Thia Greenland Craft Is a Most Difficult One to.Handle.
Tbere ls no craft so difficult to handle as tbe Eskimo kayak. Tbe only

resembles it ls tbe racing shell, but II
a crack oarsman of oue of our crack
colleges were tied Into a kayak and
told to shift for himself even In smooth
water be would bare a bard time of ii.
The kayak has been evolved through
hundreds of years of necessity. Without It the Greenland Eskimos at least
would not be able to provide their dally
bread, or. more properly speaking,
tlieir daily blubber.
It is singular tbat all tbe materials
used In the construction of tbe kayak
come from the sea���driftwood for tbe
frame, sealskin for the covering,
thongs for the harpoon and dart, Ivory
and bone for bow. stern nnd keel and
for the various implements. Tbe women prepare the skin covering and
stretch It over the frame till It ls as
tight and Arm as tbe head of a drum.
On such occasion there Is great excitement ln the community. A regular
"kayak bee" Is held; even refreshments
are not lacking, for the owner of thc
kayak treats to coffee all around wben
the work Is satisfactorily done.
The completed boat is a triumph of
Ingenuity and skill. It Is about eighteen feet long, sharply pointed at each
end. Its greatest depth is six Inches
and Its width about eighteen. It is
entirely covered suve for the little
round bole Into which the owuer slips,

upon him. The six thong loops arranged on the deck ln front and the
three or four behind hold his implements���bird darts, lances, knives and,
most important of all, his harpoon. A
little stand Is arranged directly In front

tbe kayak upright again Is by using

proficient ore able to do It by means of
their throwing stick, their arm or even

lng from one hemisphere, the reason
seeming to be, as Professor G. H. Darwin demonstrated in 1870, that a portion of tbe earth's crust has been
thrown off by tidal action, forming tbe
moon. Tbe surface density of tbe
present continents ls about 2.7, tbe
mean density of tbe moon appearing
to be 3.4, or not far from tbat of tbe
missing continents to tbe depth reached. The moon, it Is computed, equals
a mass haviug the surface area of tbe
terrestrial oceans and a depth of thlr-
ty-slx miles, and it is concluded tbat
the crust wheu thirty-six miles thick
must have been torn away over three-
fourths of the earth, the remainder
breaking apart to form the eastern and
western continents, wltb Australia and
other islands. These continental and
Island fragments floated like great Ice
floes on liquid materials of a density
of 3.7 or more. Tbis great rupture
gave tbe earth's surface its chief Irregularities, With a mean difference of
three miles between tbe levels of tbe
continental plateaus and tbe ocean
beds, and as the water condensed in
the cooling depressions, with the Pacific where most of the moon had
been, the dry land wns formed tbat
has made human life possible. We
may consider that without this change
the earth would be now in tbe condition of Venus, with water over Its
whole surface.

The Oldest Forename.
In ancient times people had one
name only, as Adam or David, and ln
order to distinguish persons of tbe
same name it wns the custom to affix
the description "son of Isaac or Joseph, as the case might be. Thus we
get Solomon ben David among the
Hebrews and Evnu ap Itlchard among
the Welsh, to quote two examples. Although the argument tbat those names
were not strictly "forenames" ls not
without weight, yet It Is responsible
to accept them as such, seeing that tbe
application had to be supplemented by
another for tbe sake of distinction.
We are therefore entitled to Include
them within the scope of the question.

Every Girl Can Have Them by
Keeping Her Blood Rich and
Red With Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
In tbe early days of her womanhood
every girl���no matter what her station in life���should be bright, active,
cheerful and happy. Her steps should
be light, her eye bright and her
cheeks rosy with the glow of health.
But the reverse is the condition cf
thousands of young girls throughout
Canada. They drag along, always
tired, suffer from headaches, breathless and with palpitating heart after
slight exercise, so that merely to go
upstairs is exhausting. This is the
condition doctors call anaemia, which
means ,weak, watery blood. In this
condition Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is
the only snfe and reliable medicine.
These pills actually make the new,
rich, red blood which can alone give
hea'th and strength, and thus make
weak, liBtless, pale-faced girls bright,
active and strong. Miss Albina St.
Andre, Joliette, Que., says:���"I am
more grateful than I can say for the
benefit 1 have found in the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I wab weak,
run down and very miserable. I suffered from severe pains in my back
anel chest; had a bad cough; no appetite and would lay awake most of
the night, and what sleep I did get
did not refresh me. 1 tried several
remedies, but they did not help me,
and I, as well as my friends, feared
I was go-ng into a decline. At this
stage a friend, who came to see me,
strongly urged me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and providentially
I acted upon the advice. After using a few boxes my appetite improved and I began to sleep much better
at night. This greatly cheered me
and 1 continued taking the pills for
some time longer, when the change
in my condition waB really marvellous. I was feeling as well as I ever
had done. I could sleep soundly at
night; the pains and cough had disappeared and I felt an altogether different girl. I am so grateful for what
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done
for me that I cheerfully give you permission to publish this in the hope
that it may point the way to health

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are good
for all diseases due to weak, watery
blood. That is why this medicine
cures rheumatism, indigestion, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, partial paralyses, and the sideaches, backaches and
Ijeadaches caused by the troubles
women alone suffer from. You can
get these pills from any medicine

Many    Infirm   Paupers   Boarding   at
Sanitariums at the Seaside.
Enquiries throughout Great Britain show that lack oi employment is
responsible for acute distress in many
towns, the trades most affected being
building, engineering and shipbuilding.
Owing, apparently, to the slackness
of trade, the forty workhouses of
Greater London are filled to overflowing. The latest returns show that
in these workhouses there are 80.183
boarders, and that 45,821 people are
receiving outdoor relief. This gives
a ratio of 2G.5 paupers to the thousand of the  population.
It is impossible to grant all the applications for admittance to these institutions, and the authorities, in
their efforts to grapple with the situation, have resorted to the novel plan
of accepting the help of professional
boarding house keepers. The managements of seaside sanitariums have
sent circulars to the workhouse authorities which say in effect: "Our staffs
are idle; yours are overworked. Cannot we help each other?"
The offers have been accepted in
several instances and many infirm
paupers have been sent to fashionable
resorts to be nursed back to health
amid surroundings luxurious beyond
their dreams. And, unlikely though
it may seem, the workhouse authorities in adopting this solution of the
difficulty are actually saving money.
It costs 20 shillings a head a week
for infirmary inmates in poorhouses,
whereas the sanitariums are taking
boarders at the reduced terms of 13
shillings a week.
Tho poverty in the Hackney district
of London is such that its workhouBe
is not only accommodating 200 persons more than it is certified for, but
paupers from that district are boarding out in eighty-five different institutions, not including lunatics in asylums. Even the chapel connected with
Hackney workhouse is being used as
a dormitory for some of life's failures.
Among the 1,601 paupers in this
institution there are some who have
been inmates for between thirty and
forty years. S.^ven of the inmates
say they fought for their country in
the Crimea. Several whole families
are in the hoose, and their furniture
is stored in ftie outbuildings until
such time as the men can make a
fresh start.
Many families are utterly undeserving of admittance to these pauper refuges. It has been shown over and
over again that when once a family
has been helped by the workhouse
authorities it acquires the workhouse
habit and again flies to them at the
first sign of trouble.
In course of time, the habit becomes a family tradition, an instance
of which is provided by Hackney.
There died there a few days ago an
old woman whose family was represented in the workhouse by four generations. The woman's daughter and
her husband, her grandchildren and
great-grandchildren were likewise in
the workhouse.
West Hnm, in the east end of London, has the doubtful honor of owning the largest workhouse in England. It is like a small walled city
and contains 2.600 paupers, which is
800 more than it is supposed to be
able to accommodate.
Four branch workhouses give shelter to another 900, and fifty women
are sleeping in a schoolroom whence
teachers and pupils have been evict-*
ed. Seven hundred children are being boarded out with foster mothers
scattered over the district.
West Ham's difficulties are to a
eprtnin extent due to the crowds of
able-bodied who have developed the
workhouse habit. There are 200
"ble-bodied women in the prime of
life, in the workhouse, nnd over a
hundred Able-bodied men between the
apes of 16 and 30.
The latter are strong voung fellows,
most of whom made their acquaintance with the interior, of the workhouse in their childhood. By going
out in the morning after breakfast
snd picking up n dinner where they
can they are able to escape the labor, such as wood chopping, stone
brenkincr or corn-prinding, which
would he their lot if they remained
inside all day.
West Ham has the h��st dietarv of
iny workhouse in the Kingdom.
���Breakfast consists of four ounces of
bread and a pint and a half of por-
ridee. Dinner may be four and a
half ounces of m��"it with twelve
ounces of peas pudding or the Fame
amount of meat with two vegetables.
For Biipper. eight ounces of bread and
one nint of broth are given out.
Tnfirm men live better. They have
a lunch between breakfast and dinner, consistine of bread and butter
and a piece of plum cake. They are
allowed tobacco, and in the eveninp
can piny draughts, bnentelle or dominoes.   No task is set them.
Pigeons  Superseded.
The Admiralty have decided to do
away with the carrier pigeon service
in the royal navy, and all the pigeonlofts on the home stations are to b��
abolished. The loft at Malta is to
be retained, however, and it has also
been decided not to interfere with
the volunteer carrier pieeon service
This decision is no doubt due to the
wonderful progress which hns bsen
made with wireless telegraph. When
the noval pigeon service wns established wireless telegraphy was unknown, where as now it is generally
ised for communications over a long
iistance, and is far more reliable than
.arriftrs, All the principal ships of
His Majesty's fleet are now equipped
and round the coast are a series of
wireless signal stations manned by
skilled operators. Signals are continually passing from the shore to men-
tt-war far away at sea. When the
Montn.u went ashore another ship
famine off the Lizard was "called
up" bv the Admiralty and directed
'o go to her aid, the telegrams are
transmitted across the Bay of Biscay

Mrs. T. Brixton, of 5 Woodworth Ave., St. Thomas, Ont., says:
" I had bad some experience as to the efficacy of Zam-Buk hi healing sores,
cuts, etc., and had heard good reports from friends who alto tried this balm,
so wben it year ago my little lad, four years of age, was left weak in the limbs as tbe
result of a severe attack of influenza, I began rubbing in the Zam-Buk. His legs
were so weak he would tremble and shake and was unable to stand for any length of
lime. Frequent applications of this ointment well rubbed in, seemed to strengthen
him daily, and in a very short time the shaking and trembling in his limbs had been
banished and he soon got strong and able to run about, thanks to Zam-Buk."

Prof. Thos. Shaw Explains How Flax
May Be Grown Without Injury to the Soil.
Prof. Thomas Shaw ol the University of Minnesota, who was formerly a
professor in the Ontario Agricultural
College at Guelph,  is-of tlie opinion
that there is no more profitable crop
for the larmers    of    the    Northwest
than flax-seed.    He says:
"The idea prevails that flax is hard
on land, viewed from the standpoint
of the removal of plant food from ihe
soil. Essentially it is not more so
than wheat. That wheat among cereals is relatively hard on land furnishes no reason w*hy it should not
be grown where the conditions ure
favorable, but it does furnish a reason why it sbould be grown in such
a way that the fertility of the land
may still be maintained, and the same
line of reasoning will apply to flax.
When flax is grown in a judicious
rotation, it fits aB naturally into the
same as any other crop.
The Proper Rotation
"The question now arises, what is
the rotation in which flax should be
grown? A blue reflection will answer
this question. When land is first
broken, ond when at the same time
a proper seed bed is prepared, it
furnishes the best crops. Why? For
three reasons. First, it is well supplied with tne elements of plant
growth; second, it is well stocked
with humus, that is, vegetable matter in a state of decay; and third, it
is relatively clean. Tlie decaying vegetable matter in the soil adds to the
available fertility from other sources,
and it also furnishes moisture to the
plants. The relatively clean condition of the soil is very favorable to
the growth of the flax crop, as it is
not well fitted to cope with a vigorous growth ot noxious weeds. The
influence of the flax crop is also helpful to the quick reduction of the
prairie sod, owing to the peculiar nature of the fibrous growth of the roots.
These, penetrating every, part, reduce
the soil to a disintegrated pulverulent
muss, which is greatly favorable to
the growth of the succeeding grain
crop other than flax.
Sod Land for Flax
"It has also been noticed that good
crops of flax follow the breaking up
of a sod field. Why? For the same
reasons that good crops of flax are
grown on new breaking. The yields
from crops grown on common sod
land broken up are usually not quite
so good as on new breaking, because
the elements of fertility are not usually present to the same extent. But,
should farmyard manure be spread
ou the sod land the previous year,
the teachings from the same would
so stimulate the growth of grass roots
that these in decay would produce
the best crops of flax that it would
be possible to grow. It may happen
sometimes, however, that in certain |
other seasons the best crops may
not come from sod land. However,
the more sod land which the Northwest can furnish, the more will be the
urea of highest adaptation for growing the crop. Tho more grass to
furnish pasture, the greater the number of th,e live stock kept, and the
greater the number of these the greater will be the supplies of manure to
spread on the sod land on which flax
is to be grown. The close interdependence between much live Btock
and much flax in the future is thus
A Good Crop to Follow Wheat
"No crop north of the corn belt proper can follow wheat so well as flax.
But it has been noticed that when ]
flax is grown on old and worn land
the yields are low. The crop is also
much injured by noxious weeds.
Moreover, it has also been noticed
that usually it is not wise to grow
two crops of flax in succession or
even without an interval of a few
years between the crops. This is owing to some substances left in the
ground by the flax roots detrimental
to the growth of flax that follows on
the same land. How many years
should elapse between the crops will
depend on such conditions as trie
newness and strength of the land.
Usually, however, a wise rotation
would call for an interval of four or
five years between the crops. This
does not mean, however, that in some
instances good crops of llox cannot
be grown in close succession. The
increasing prevalence of flax will
also accentuate the wisdom of growing flax crops in a judicious rotation.
It is thus apparent that tho aim
should be to grow flax Hot more frequently than four to five or even more
than five years on the same land,
and to grow it as far as possible, first
on new breaking, second on overturned sod, and third on overturned
sod previously manured."

To the Editor, Slocan Mining Review.
I am visiting friends here, who were
staying last summer at New Denver and
who strongly advised me to see the place
before leturniiig to the Old Country.
So by tlieir persuasion, and the perusal
of a charming book of views, entitled
"Silvery Slocan," I journeyed tbere last
wetk, and must admit I was much smitten with the town and its surroundings.
After perambulating the district for a
day, I returned to my hotel completely
"fagged out," and naturally hoped for
a night's repose, but alaBl I had a sleepless and vexatiotisly disturbed night.
.No sooner was the electric light extinguished and I laid me down to rest, an
outcast dog commenced baiking, whicli
was continued throughout the night.
Then started a straying cow (or bull)
brawling continuously, and then fullowed
a lively though distmbin. and unintelligible conversation between two neighbourly cats, who eventually indulged
in a discordant duet, and evidently
parted ditsatistied with their vocal abilities, and so was 1 too.
I understand you have a Town Improvement Society, and! would respectfully suggest to that body of gentlemen
ihe di stability of encaging a night
watchman to ensure the quietude in the
.online hours of the night, o'hirwise
my experience will prove a detrimental
advertisement for your prom-sing ilace

to send a copy of your next issue.
