Methodist; Conference  , When that'G. O^'m. of Methodism,  Dr. Carman, delegated tlie more onerous duties of superintending the western work to a younger mind, it was  realized' at 'the conference 'that there'  was no better man to-take up the  work than -Dr. Chown who had al-r  ready shown executive ability of ho  mean, order.  REV. S. I). CHOWN, D.D.  Since his appointment Dr. Chown  has so ingratiated' himself to the  Westerners with-his earnestness and  , aptitude for work-that the members  of the Methodist church feel that in  'the genial doctor they have one in  whom they can place the utmost confidence.

Albani, educated, musically in an  "American city, reflects credit on the  neighbouring- republic; Albani, the  beloved singer' of the- dead Queen  Victoria, was ea'sifly 'the favourite  Prima Donna .of England; Albani, the  cosmopolitan cantabrlce, has been a  -notable figure >in Europe; but it' is  Ailbani, the'Canadian,'a woman simple  of soul, pure 'of lifer high of ideal,  'pre-eminent in faithful art that we  especially claim from the national  standpoint. . <  She is the daughter of-Joseph and  Molina Lajeunesse of, the ancient  'family of St.- Louis, and was born in  ChambUy, Que.; in -1847. ' The singer  was educated ( at an English , school  at- Plattsburg,1 -N.Y., and later at1 the  convent of'the. Sacred Heart at -Sault  au Recoilet, Que. Her first musical  training came from her father, himself a skilful musician; and at the  aire of" seven lyears_we 'find. the., little  gvN:"^&SkSSg"^W llrsT appearance In  i public under the auspices of certain  influential citizens, in the Mechanics'.

">������������������ '!���������'>������������������'���������   ���������    i  FRANK T. SHUTT,  . , Dominion Chemist.  , The importance as fertilizers of any  plant from seaweed at the coast to  clover in the interior of the country  is- -ascertained for Canada by Mr.  Frank T."'Shutt, M.A.,' F.I.C., F.C.S.,  -F.R.S.C. - Dominion Botanist, and his  sta.ff at-Ottawa.  Seated in the midst of a formidable  army of bottles, flasks, bnnsen burners, test tubes, sca^s. etc., Mr. Shutt  directs 'his work, sending broad-cast  instructive bulletins on the nitrogen-  enrichment of, soils, through the  growth of clover, 'the effect of subsurface packing on the soil moisture-  content, and kindred subjects. These  questions may seem to have little importance to others than farmers, but  in reality they concern every consumer of Canadian bread indirectly in  a very vital way. Without wheat there  is no flour without flour no bread;'  without proper soil and moisture, no  wheat and consequent'/ no bread. It  is thus with the very fundamentals of  farming that Mr. Shutt has to deal���������  with the soil, its fertilization, its irrigation! and in a general way preparation to bring forth the bounteous  harvests that make Canada f;-.mous.  Another branch of this work is the  examination of walers from farmers'  wells, dairies and cheese factories. By  'pronouncing on the water's whole-  someness, the department does much  to preserve the heoH'i both of farmers  and consumers of ^fm produce.  Recently, Mr. Shutt experimented  with three lecdirig varieties of sugar  reets on experimental farms at many  distant points in Canada. The results of the investigation show the  possibility of a large sugar beet industry in this country.  ~        DR. EUGENE HAANEL,  Ottawa.  As, surpertoterident of the Mines  branch of the Mine's .department, Dr.  Eugene Haanel is -rendering, valiant  "service to Canada in the development  of the- country's vast mineral ��������� resources. There are two branches of  the Mines department ��������� the Geological Survey and the Mines branch,  *he work of 'the latter being; largely  "economic.  Under-Dr. Haaoiel come the publication of , statistics Relative to mineral  production, the investigation of mineral areas, . preparation * of mineral  maps, and'the collect/ion of ore specimens for display in the national museum at Ottawa.  At the present time Dr. Haanel is  undertaking eipecial investigations  with regard to the peatlindustry. For  demonstration purposes' the depart-  .m'ent acquired a peat bog at Alfred,  Ont., on which a new peat machine  has been operated for the last two  seasons. Peat has already been sold  to the people of Ottawa, and. has been  in great demand. The lack > of coil  deposits in the provinces of lOntario  and Quebec and the high costNof imported fuels make the development  of peat fuel a matter of immense importance to the community.  . Ones branch of Dr Haanel's work  is to'keep the public informed on  mining and imetaHurglcal industries  of the country. Monographs 'have already been published on mica, asbestos, graphite, while others-on gypsum, eailit, building stones and copper  areas are under way.  The serious loss of life and property  during the past few years due to explosions in magazines where explo-  ives were stored, and the number of  casualties resulting from accidental  discharge of explosives on construction work emphasized the great necessity of governmental control and  7-gcruii.qfrli,irv2 cf_ th/>_ r'P'niifaf^nT.0.. -Jtest-  1 Who is, the 'highc'st-tfii(factor in  the 'w.brld?
