The discovery was made accidentally only a few weeks ago, when  a picnic party was going through a  large, cave that has been known for  years^ One of the party stumbled on  a dark and narrow crevice giving access to the glorious "Cathedral."  From the floor were picked up human  bones and articles, which indicated  that the cave had been used as a  burial ground by the mysterious  people who -inhabited the south-west  of what is now the United States before the Aztecs. Implements and domestic pottery were strewn about in  profusion. ,  How: are you fixed with your supply of stationery for the Fall  Business? Remember, there is an old proverb which^ays^A  man is known by the company he keeps."

Among all our good people,  riot -one - in a ��������� thousand sees the sun  rise once' in -a year.. They know, nothing of the, morning. Their, idea of  it is that part of the day which comes  along after a' cup- of' coffee and a  beefsteak or "a piece of, toast. .'With  them, morning is .not a new issuing  of light; a new bursting forth of the  sun, a new waking-up of all that has  life from a sort of -temporary, death,  to behold .again dhe .works of God,:  the heavens'and tihe earth: it "is onlyi  a part of the domestic day, belonging  to reading ^nejyspapers,' 'answering  notes^ sending the children to school,  ���������and giving, orders fox, dinner.' The  first' streak of flight, the earliest  purpling of .the east, which the lark'  springs up to---greet, and the deeper'  and deeper colouring' into orange, and  red,, till at length ,the "glorious sun  is seen, regent of the day" ���������'- this  they never enjoy, for they' never see^  it. I never- thought- thatjAdam had  ;much, the advantage of us from having  seen the world while' it; was new. The  manifestations of the power of God,  Mke' His mercies, are "new every  morning" and - fresh every -moment.  We see asi fine, risings of /the. sun < as  ever-Adam saw; and its risings are  as muoh a miracle now as they were  in his' day ���������' arid, I think, a- good  deal more, because.it is now a part,  of the miracle, that for thousands  and thousands of" years he .has come  to his appointed - time, without the  variation of a -, millionth part of a  second.   Adam could not tell how this  ��������� might, be. -I know-'the morning*��������� I  am acquainted with it, and: I ,love it.  I love R fresh' and sweet as "it is ���������  a daily,' new creation, breaking forth  and calling all^ that have life and  breath and  being  to  new   adoration)  -new enjoyments, and new gratitude.

The woman wnc really rules her  household and assumes the responsibility of wife and n other as her own,  not to be laid on the shoulders of  any deputy, gradually, in too many  cases, lets go the*opportunities of influence and blessing which would interrupt her prescr.bed order of accomplishment.

CARE OF BREEDING SOWS  The old maxim, that "like produces  like"-is.just as true,to-day.'as ever,it  was,  and,'  generally   speaking^   it  is f  always true.   To prove it, just breed,  from-scrub  stock  for  two  or-.three'  generations .and- it' will .tafce several:.-  generations of most judicious, breed-::  ,lng  to" / regain   what, has   been'lost.  On    the ' proper,   selection    of   theV  foundation-of a herd depends'-largely;  the success orfailure/of .the hog business; or any. other stock "business for .  that matter.' ' ' ' >   '  ��������� Selecting the t breeding* sows i deserves more/attention than, very many  farmers,, devote to that end." If, improvement is our watchword/ as it',  ought to ��������� be, the. best should be selected every time.. A-sow-for-breeding purposes.- should,- he picked ��������� out  from,'av'-large-even .litter, an<I, prefer-.-  ably, from a manure sow.  Points in Selection   (  Select long, even, smooth- pigs,'  with' 12~or_more.teats. This latter.. is^,  an Important point, for a sow cannot  properly, nurture more' than, one', pig  for each developed teat she, possesses.  See that the. youngster' has plenty1,  of bone. of. good quality-! (not .necessarily coarse but of good;shape), 'With  limbs well .placed and comparatively  straight so that they wont be' so liable  to; break ^ down at- the ,ankles' or  pasterns'when they-'reach maturity:  Haying'set aside what, we consider'  our Ideal don't spoil' her by feeding'  her along with the fattening hogs, and^-  ..thereby develop a fatty conformation',  rather than-the-long, deep, muscular  frame that Is desirable.' -Better grow '  her slowly,, giving at all' times-plenty  of  exercise  and   not  much,   if, any,:  grain food.- A grass,or rape plot,-with  some house slops or whey, is,plenty  for  summer  feed,-with  alfalfa   and  roots as a winter feed, with a 'light  grain or meal * ration, instead of the  roots.  Don't Breed Too Young  As farrowing time approaches, another common danger is to breed too  ���������young. ��������� -The ��������� sow- .should be 12 to 14  months old when she farrows her first  litter. Pigs- from lnmature, sows  seldom make as strong and -robust  feeders, and are more susceptable to  the common ailments than are pigs  from more mature stock,', and as..-so  very little decides between profit and  loss, it is all Important .that everything possible should be,done to produce healthy stock; not only to produce profits on food consumed,������but  to. enable us to produce, a-healthy .and  wholesome article of food. Proper  selection and care of the breeding  sows Is the basis of success in' the  hog business. J",  value'or/the''land several hundred per,  cent. ...

In the Anna-;  polls Valley, N.S., ordinary farm lands  can be purchased at from $50 to $100  an acre. The land on adjoining farms  which was set 12 or 15 years ago to  orchards, is worth from $500 to $1,000  an acre. It was eight to 10 years  after setting ^before these orchards  returned a profit, but small fruits'  that were grown on the land in the  meantime paid interest on the investment in land from the first year the  orchard was set.  In British Columbia land that a few  years ago was worth only a few dol-.  lars an acre, is now valued as high  ������-  $300.00, and  the  average  orchard-  set to (apples is worth at least" $500  an acre. v  The   same   improvements  in   land  values   are   to   be   seen   in   Ontario,  through the planting of orchards.

One of its  avowed objects .was the "removal of  any disadvantages of, a public kind  which impede the* progress of  Science."' Science is able now ,to return the complirrent. At last the  voice vof Science, in the. person of Sir  William Ramsay, the President, has a  practical message that will bring, the  ?.ountrr to a knowledge of the limitation of its na'tionpl resources,*and of  the nature of national economy. Sir  William Ramsay is a Scot.' He was  ���������born- at Glasgow on the second of  October, 1852.. .Like.,so many other  famous Scots, he passed through the  Edinburgh Academy and the University. That was in the days when  ��������� German ��������� learning dazzled thinking  -Britain; so Tublntren marked his next  step. In 1874 he became Tutorial  Assistant of Chemistry' at, Glasgow  University, and at the age ,of twenty-  3ight obtained hi? frst Pr?fessorship  at Universitv College. Bristol, a  "chair" which he held for seven years,  at the end of which time he became  Principal of the College. So far as  the general nubl'c is "on^erned the  two outstanding features of Sir William's life are his knighthood, which  was conferred in 1902,and his research  into the properties cf radium. His  naper on argon, vr'tten !n conjunction ��������� irffh " r o������"' Favip.'irh,'- leprts us  into the purely scientific domain,  wherein the properties of helium,  radium and the products of pitchblende are as vpt Po?,1er/ questions to  the layman. '��������� Scientific- research has  reached a *point at which the dis-  covery,;of new nra^tira' dualities in  minerals and new arraneements of  heat or for'>e'-p'*c'',':c'np' cutter may  at any time be made. To Sir William  Ramsay In Britain and to Madame  Curie in France the man of to-day is  looking for developments.  ' if I THB ABBOTSFORD POST;  Mr. Ed.
