To its crodiit be it .said, that  where the eutcimo'bile has been put  iioisuch work it has done well and  qu:ckly what would otherwise have  ;een ieXt undone.  The spL7t-log drog has bean turned over to very good use by motor  works losated at Lansing, M'ich. It  ��������� occurred to- the management that,  vvhjie giving their ca,rs the usual  :ioad tests, a double purpose.could  oe served and the testing,cars used  Co improve the conditions oi the  r-oads over whuch they^passed. To  thsi end, a spliit-lo-g^drag. was contrived, and attached to. ^.ach car as  it went forth to. its test.  The experiment worked out ad-  m'fria|bly\ * * 'Resulting in .a vast  improvement in the neighborhood  and an economy ,to tlie- borough.  The work was accomplished vwi^th-  out any expense, o,f .powea; or labor���������simply by using .the \ ene,rgy  which -formerly had "been, (used exclusively for testing purposes.  It "has been left to the bi,g .brother oi the ^automobile,, the motor  truck,'to tur,n seriously^to' the cask  o-f noad building and road maintenance,. So far the- truck has .been  remarkably successful in road work  Especially .is thas true af the -trucks  fitted fox traction work (in pulling  trailers, noad graders, road xlrags,  etc., as we;ll as for haulmg ro'ad and  brvdge /constrjuctiilon {materials on  Dh.e.\r own badiies.  &nce -the "picnic system" of work  ing treads has gonq out of viogue it  li.:ls been hard to fine teams and  drivers enough to- do the work that  '.\*as absolutely necessary to keep  the rpads passable, without trying  ta start anything now in the way  dl 'road improvement/ It takes  eight 'horses and fruity tw^o to iour  day.

With this scheme  the townsmen -are able- to- drag  more roads than a half dozem men  and teams could handle,, and tney  get the road 'done at the right time.  With the speqial wheels ,the roads  are dry enough for the machine  when they are dry enough to drag.  The Hooper 'Township trustees  have s'ince found that the track  could have handled tha, work of at  ieast tw.o townships with almost  equal case, and at the same time  have leissendd. the expense considerably,. However, they .fund use for  the truck and manage vto make it  earn its gasoline all the year round,  grading, hauling bridge,, culvert  and other road material, and doing  other W;ork for the township. Besides, wlien it is not in use it does-  n'tj cost any thing .fox uteejd or care.  At, first there was a good deal  oi'. opposition to the purchase of  the truckyby .the citizen's 'of the  township, and a, lot ^of complaint  about it after it was bought^ There  are a few taxpayers .who still insist that "that contrap^on will  bankrupt the township."-"'But "the  majority of qi.tj.zens .of Ho.oper-  Township adm,il  that  the irucfc is  The best and most comfortable  Livery Rigs, and'an automabile  for hire.

Specialising -chiefly on the  Canadian part 0,1" our Imperial his-'  ?ory..and defence, the Colonel has contributed mr-py . interesting and in-  ���������jfniclivfi articles bearing on the subject, with perhaps a slightly stronger  inclination towards matters pertaining to thc naval section.  ,The. first  work published from  his  pen    was    in   1904   "The   Fight   for  COL.  >V. WOOD,  A  noted  tlaiijjdiau  Litterateur  Canada", which ran through thret  editions in England, one in Canada  and one in Australia, and' was tin  earliest occasion on which was introduced the exceedingly important  naval element into the history of thi.  Conquest of Canada. These facts arr  entirely based on original documents  nothing being taken .from books 01  any. other secondary sources of information, and his point- of view is  now generally accepted by ail writer.-  on the subject.  Col. Wood's second book was "The  Logs of tho Conquest of Canada"  ir  1909, which gives a selection from the  logs of the men-of-war that comprised  the three great British fleets at. Louis-  burg   in   1758,   Quebec   in   1759,   and  Montreal in 1760.' There is an elaborate   introduction,   dealing   with   tho  nayal h.isiqry of the Seven Years War  and facsimiles, of the "original  charts,  by  the  celebrated  Captain  Cook  are  reproduced on the original scale. This  is the first book  on  Canadian   naval  history   ever   written,   and   the   first,  except   "The ��������� Fight   for   Canada"," to  take any real notice of the immense  mass of naval evidence on the subject.  Both   books,    and    more   "especiaJ'y  "The Fight for Canada," are written  so   as   to   appeal   to   the   interested  general-public,-though both are .used  by naval and military experts.  The Colonel is also the author,  of other works on the Conquest,, of a  more' professedly popular kind. He  has 'contributed a long 'chapter, on  the subject to the great new "PI3story  of the Dominion and its Provinces"  in ,12 volumes, the 'publication oi  which is to beyin in 1812, and  ]ias  written .the  liYi?s of "Wolfe and  I\7Sntca"m~ "u:r TTtic . ���������r.���������.::-.-r-zz o'f  Canada", a publication which will be  in the hands of thc public towards  the end of the present year. The chapters on tho American invasion of 1775  and tho War of 18.12 in tho new "History of the Dominion" are also from  his;pen\< and he is now editing, for  publication in tho summer of 1032,  .three volumes of hitherto unpublished  and mostly unknown original documents on the War of 1812, with a full  introduction.  But Colonel Wood has other themes  than   the 'history   of   Canadian   wars.  Plo'   has    for ���������  a     long    been     a  collector    and ,��������� student    of    French-  Canadian folksongs. His first .publication was a -monograph on .these.    Pie  is also in close 'touch   with  the' inner  life'of   the   Province   of   Quebec   in  general.    The Publishers}  Press  Ltd.,  Montreal,   will  issue   from   his  pen ..a  book, .called . "In    the   Heart, of   Old  Canada"    which    comprises    all'  the  chief     studies     he     has     made     of  ���������the    "habitant"    at    home,     of    the  Ursulines,    of   folksong    and    poetry  (he   is   the  author  of   the  article  on  French-Canadian literature in the new  Encyclopoedia Britannica)  and many  other   things,   such   as   the   unknown  story of the fortifications of Quebec,  .the true version of the tale of Wolfe  and Gray's Elegy, the different Royal  visits to Quebec, etc.  -But the second book of his, which  Publishers Press are bringing out  next spring, is perhaps as near the  author's heart as any of the foregoing.  .Under title of "Alouette" he is collecting what he has written on canoeing  and yachting trips down the Lower  St. ' Lawrence, as far as Labrador.  Ho is a.devoted lover of all animals,  and the final chapter will contain the  gist of his monograph on Animal  Sanctuaries, which the Commission'of  Conservation are publishing for distribution throughout the sporting,  tourist and scientific world. But the  human element is even stronger.  Amongst other positions of public  honor held by Col. ��������� Wood were:���������  President of the English Section of  the Royal .Society of Canada, in  1908-9; vice-president or the Quebec'  Tercentenary in 1908, and Commanding Officer of the 8th Royal Rifles,  Canadian Militia 1907-10.  ?JOB=K?43Ka&'Zt3&~-S2a3SEaB:.

SEED GKAIX  Farmers as a rule are paying  attention to the selection of  seed grain since the Canadian  Growers' Association commenced its  work., As a rule, farmers are too  careless in the selection of seed grain.  Too many thresh all the grain together and then take what is /.wanted  from the, bin for'seed. The simplest  plan and the. best plan is to start  before cutting and .'select the best  part of-.the field, cut, store, and  thresh it by itself.   .���������'."-.,.  The best method of selecting 'seed  and ;.the one which will.give the best  results, is to go into the field and  select the very best individual plant  and, breed up a strain of seed from  this plant only. Most farmers, however, will not do this. And for them  tlie first plan is the best.  don'!   you  Thomas  '"iii'y  by   don't  I' try?  lui.
