Tuesday evening 11th the Board of  Trade held their regular monthly meeting, Pres. C. O. Rogers in the Chair.  There were about 13 members present  and great enthusiasm prevailed throughout the meeting.  A report was received from the C. P.  R. with regard to the shipping of goods  at Wynndel. The nearest approach to .  the line there is abant 10 feet above  the tracks and it is impossible to unload any heavy stuff there. The  Company was asked to grade the roads  so that a load could could be brought  or taken away from the cars, but thev  stated that the'nost would be 600.00  and as there was a station one mile  away, Duck Creek, they refused to  spend the money.  * ��������� ��������� *       '  The secretary was instructed to wrste  the Company and request them, to  make Duck Creek a regular flag station.  The question of the stagnant water  in the immediate vicinity of G. Cart-  wright's house Erickson was dealt?  with and the secretary was instructed  to write to the health officer requesting  him to communicate with the provincial  authorities with a view to compelling  the O. P. R. to put in proper drainage,  as it was very evident thau it was  owing to their having made a cut off  there that caused the water to stagnate.  A letter was received From Hon.

Celebrated   Academy   Pictures  Work
of Unknown Artists
As �� Journalist you are doubtless
a"vare that spooks are as '7 common
in the literary -world as .blackberries,
so to speak; hut it -will .probably surprise you and your readers?to learn
that artistic s_ ook& have grdwn rapidly in numbers during the last year
or two* said a well-known artist to
the writer in the course of a recent
conversation. No matter wjtat picture gallery you may stroll into, one
or two of the works that attract your
attention can be termed frauds���that
is, they are not painted by the people "whose tfiamcs appear oa them,
but by paid ghosts.
It does not follow that because a
canvas bears the name of a man or
woman, known or unknown, that lt Is
the actual work of the person who
signed it. A capital picture exhibited ln a prominent gallery the other
day bore t_o name ol a lady. The
picture was a still-life study, and it
was painte*! by a black-and-white
artist who draws cartoons for certain newspapers. He received a big
sum for his services.
There are many clever artists who
are too poor to refuse a good price
to paint a picture for exhibition under another's name, and 'i my early
days, when I knew what poverty
mear.t. I painted a picture for. a
wealthy gentleman who waa considered a talented amateur, but whoso
:.ctual work was too crude for exhibition. The picture I turned out re-
p -sented a shipwreck and was put
on show iu ��� gallery in a northern
town The man whoso name appeared on tlit- canvas sold it eome
timo later tor $1,000. He paid mo
$400 to paint it, and at the lime I
should have boen glad to paint it for
a tenth of that figure, such an urgent need 1 had of money.
Scct-s of pictures exhibited every
year at. the principal art galleries are
not lhe productions of sing!. artists.
Artists coiluuorato to an enormous
extent; and even R.A.'s have before
now called in a ghost to touch up a
picture for exhibition- An artist may
be weak in the matter of sky. Cor instance. If he painted in tho sky
himself bis picture might be rejected
when submitted to an exhibition. To
prevent this he calls in a sky expert, a man who is noted for bis sky
. and cloud effects This man puts in
the sky, receives payment for doing
/ J so, and would never think of meu-
�����" i tioning his  work to a living soul.
This kind, of collaboration can
hardly be termed unscrupulous. Collaboration in commercial, art is very
common. Take our poster artists
the designers of newspaper advertisements. Many oE these men
employ assistants���clever young fellows���to complete designs and place
in any wording required, after they
have drawn the principal and most
striking parts of -he poster or advertisement, as the case may be.

T.\vo.  things in particular must be considered���������accuracy and durability. Nature  does not, it is contended, furnish any  single metal or mineral Which exactly  answers the requirements for a standard of measure or iv eight that shall be  as nearly as possible unalterable.  It;, ia held that the beat substance  yet produced for "this purpose is an al-  ;loy of 90^ per cent platinum, -with 10  iper cent of iridium.    This  is  called  'irldio-platinum, and it is the substance  of :W_ie- the melri<r standards prepared by the international commission of  weights and measures are?composed.;  It is hard, it ic less affected .by heat  than any pure metal.   It is practically nonoxidizable, or   not   subject   to  rust,  and it can be finely engraved.  In fact, the lines on the standard meters are hardly visible"-) the' naked eye  yet they are smooth, even, sharp and  accurate. ?  It is said that If our civilization  should ever be lost and relics pf";lt  should be discovered in some brighter  age iu the remote futuro there is nothing which would bear higher testimony to Its character than these  standard measures of iridio platinum.

Three  Oxen  Might be Roasted  The Idtche_ of olden times seem to  have been of extraordinary size, Judging from the invests-tions made by  San English historical society. At  Hurstrmonc-aurx for example, there  was a kltche: twenty-eight feet high.,  with throa huge fireplaces and a bake-  bouse with an ovec- fourteen, feet in  ciameter.  There is an old Welsh kitchen near  Ijlnndud^o, dating from "the fifteenth,  century, which has many primitive  culinary contrivances, now obsolete or  superseded by modern '-vices. Among  these curious eld devices may be mentioned a meatjack with a flywheel, a  steel toasting stand and a fan bellows.  At Battle abbey there is a curious  old kitchen containing much of inter-  est to the antiquary, and a kitchen  ftt St, Mary's hall, Coventry, is're-  -larkable for the famous 'knaves' post  tc which, it appears, refractory scullions were temporarily attached by  way of pun?sLiment?  There is a medieval kitchen at  Westminster abbey, although little remains by which to identify it aside  from the rubble flooring, the buttery  hatch and an adjoining cellar. Hampton Court palace shows its great  kitchen with vaulted roof and-sets of  antlers on its walls.  Englishmen of other day-~ fully recognized the advantages of a large  kitchen. There Is extant an order,  dated April 19, 1206, wherein Hugh  de Nevill is commanded to have the  king's kitchen at Clarendon roofed  with shingles and to cause two new  kitchens to be erected, one at Marlborough and the other at LiUdgersfhall,  to which 'to aress' the royal dinners.  In this order it ls stated "tihat it ls  particularly directed that each kitchen  shall bo provided with a furnace sufficiently large to roast two or three  oxen.

In the many storm tides that flood  the desolate beaches the hulks of  stanch ships lost along the coast on  the half hundred miles of beaches between Molic-moy at Chatham and Wood  End at Provincetown are frequently  exhumed from tombs of sand.

Guarded by a Network of Devices to  Insure Their Safety  From the moment a depositor lines  up before the receiving teller's window of a bank and lays his bills on  the counter until he again receives  back his money from the paying teller his deposit has been surrounded  by a network of devices to insure its  safe keeping. ���������' It has been subjected  to the rigid banking laws of the state  or nation, to a guardianship by a host L-S  of public omciais, by steel and by time  locks, by the vi_i!a ce of the bank officials and the survelliance of bonding  companies.  And yet in spite cf this constant effort, though the depositor rarely loses  himself, sometimes his money mysteriously disappears, and until the guilty  person is detected the shadow of a.  doubt hangs over the personnel ol  that bank, from the office boy to the  president. Such, however, la the  system of vigilance by "wliicft the public through its agents of the law  guards funds on deposit that it is only  rarely that the money so taken is  not  recovered. -  The marvel is not that men dally,  hourly, tempted with opportunities to  purloin the wealth which passes their  fingers sometimes yield to this temptation, but that the percentage of loss  from theft which the banks of thr  country sustain is not greater than it  is. Indeed, so t.nusual is the occurrence of a -left by a member of the  bank's personnel that when such is  the case the bank's nervous organization is thrown out of equilibrium.

W. Hunter ln the National Stockman. How many can we afford to  keep or how few can we get along with  und not be out of season getting crops  planted and harvested? A pair of  good brood mares will, I believe, solve  this problem better and more profitably  than any otber system, provided good  judgment is used in breeding and enre  of the mares and the colts. By good  management the produce of the mares  and tbe growth of tbe colts ought to  pay all the expense of keeping, and  thus the horse power ou the farm can  be a source of profit rather than a bill  of expense, as it usually is.

A new disease, silver scurf (Spondy-  locladlura atrovireus liarz), Iiuh recently been Introduced from JEuropo  and la spreading rapidly In our eastern  states, says a recent bulletin of tbo  United States department of agrlcul-  of company stock. Under the  law as it stands it is possible  for promoters to make immense rakeoffs in the flotation  oi companies, public service  and otherwise, through capitalising the undertaking  much higher than its actual  value and taking the difference  as their recompense for placing  the proposition before the public. This is what is called  wutcripg company stock.  The result of this practise,  so far as the public is concerned, is tliat higher prices  must be charged lor the particular service rendered, whal-  cva it uiuy be, iu order to  provide dividends on the promoters'   watered   fitApl*   than  on the Bkln of tlio tuber, which on  cIoho examination may bo seen to bo  Photo  by   United   Hi 11 ton  department  ot  uui-luulltiru.

The;  leaf thi-sues finally turn yellow, and  the leaves are easily pulled off.

According to some authorities,  the value of plant food removed  from the soil per bushel of wheat  is about 30 cents for average  yields. The plant food elements  contained in straw "are sometimes return**- to the soil whence  they came, either in the form of  straw or mixed with farm ma-  cure v,*_sre st uas Di^u uuiuw  for bedding purposes. It is'not  plain why the. farmer sheuld  spend so. much time and energy  striving to raise large yields of  grain and straw nnd then waste  about one-half of the net profit  of the crop. There should be  some means of utilising that  portion of tbe wheat crop which  heretofore has been burned on a  large percentage of our farms.  ���������Kansas Parmer.  ���������><$-4*<3*$*Sk������k������*"-$^^  Wm A.

It ia, in fact,^ the kb������5  of colors, according to Professor "VSv  Peabody Bartlett.  Perhaps, says .frofessor Bartlett, if  our blood v-cre green instead of red  ���������we would hold green as the king of  colors, because blood ia life. The  sight of it stirs both man and the lower animals, and for that reason the color of it is the racst effective of all  colors.  Every one knows the antipathy a  bull has to red, how he will bellow and  become blindly enraged at the sight of  it, but the bull is by no means the  only animal that is affected by thle  color. Put a dog in a kennel and  cover the end that opens to daylight  <vith a white cloth or a black cloth,  and the dog will pay little attention  to it, but cover the opening with a  bright red cloth so that the daylight  comes through to the dog ir. a red  j slow, and tbe do_ will at onco begin  ! to bark furiously.  Put a rooster in a dark bag or a  green or yellow bag and he will remain quiet, but put liim in a bag of  thin red cloth, so that the light may  shine through aud show the color, and  the rooster will crow lustily. This is  not because be might tbiu!: "the red  indicated sunrise, because roosters  will crow long before the first faint  tinge of color appeara in the east.

It will probably be news to the ar-*  erage ablutionlst that the metal nickel  is used in making his soap.   And further, perhaps, he "will be glad to learn  that although the nickel, finely grouau,  is mixed with the other soap ingredients, the finished product contains none  of it.    This is so because the nickel  acts as what the chemists call a catalyst���������that It, its presence causes certain  desirable  changes to occur,  although It takes no part In the chemical  reaction.   Offensive oils and those too  thin for satisfactory use, when mixed  with finely divided nickel and subjected  to the action of a current of hydrogen,  become deodorized and harder and suitable for the soap inaketfs use.   Cottonseed oil, for example, after'the nickel-  hydrogen treatment, makes a satisfactory soap.���������New Tork Post  and   SlsUr   Bisugree  "??       ?"���������'.:YQueatlon et* Hjile.

Quite Simple if You Can Whistle Loud  Enough and In Tune.  Theoretically it Is now possible for a  man to lie in bed and whistle to the  window io ciosej whistle to the taps in I  th������ bathroom to draw the water for hia  hath: whistle to "an electric cooker to  start the coffee or whistle to the dooi  to open and admit a waiter with breakfast.   A story ls going the rounds that  a London inventor has actually accomplished the last of these conveniences,  but  from a  practical  standpoint ill  sounds improbable.  The theory of It Is simple. At the  door Is a piano wire tuned to a certain  key, so that when the lazy man in the  bed whistles in that key the wire will  vibrate ln sympathy. The vibrating  wire strikes another--wire, completing  an electric circuit, and by means of a  magnet the door Is unlocked.  The same method could be applied in  theory to accomplish the other results  named and could be extended to innumerable other appliances, eo that automatic servants would all respond to  orders at a whistle.  Each appliance, tuned to a cllfferent  key, would respond to a different whistle note.  Practically It -would take probably  moro vigor to whistle loud enough  from bed to operate tbe mechanism at  the door than lt would to get up and  unlock the door, and even then the adjustments would have to be perfect  Furthermore, tho whistling would have  to bo on the ke^, which would bar  most people from lira scheme.  Very few people are gifted with the  ability to whistle a predetermined note  on tho key. tn fact, most people have  di-lculty enough whistling to tbe key  a fow Beconds after they havo heard it  correctly sounded on an instrument,  end tbe lazy man with an ordinary key  sense would be having tho wlndowa  open when he really wonted nioro heat  turned on.���������Saturday Evening Post  much relish bo emptied the bucket, and  then ambled away.  Th������ next evening the \_illoiiaid was  better prepared, and -;/hen she went  to the pasture she carried t_e bucket  ia one nand and in the other a shotgun, which she leaned against a tree;  this because ehe looked for a return  visit of the milk-loving bear. She  was not disappointed. The pail was  nearly filled thi9 time when Bruin  appeared, coining toward her in a  very evident hurry. The girl repeated  her flight of the evening before, and  the bear again rmade up to the bucket.  When his head was comfortably into  the milk, the gun, loaded with number  Bix -shot, was very precisely airaedj  and a second or two later Bruin lay  low.  The point of this story is that tlie  vroiB.-3- who live In. the frontier country have need of keeping their wits  dbout them. And, aa a matter of fact,  most of them do. Many tales are told  of the bravery, fortitude, and remarkable endurance of woman settlers in the remote places of the West  and _Tort_, some of whom have also  proved themselves the possessors of  exceptional ability and business keenness.  Thus there is an honor roll of at least  a, half-dozen women in Alaska who  played the part of -mining prospector  go well that they made good stakes and  won fame and fortune. They were, iu  the theory and practice of placer -mining as any sraan in the North, and  proved.it ny results. It is told of one  of these venturesome six that once, to  save her husband's bank at Nome from  failure, she traveled three hundred  miles In midwinter, alone and by dog-  team, carrying a substantial elean-up  of gold nuggets from her own holdings.  By day and night, through snow and  blizaara, she kept to the trail, and  reached Nome, with her golden relief,  just in time to avert the threatened disaster.  Another woman, not a gold-hunter,  mushed 1,450 miles from Rampart to  Whitehorse^ is. the Yukon. She did it  aldae, too-aiid in the dead of a de-adly  winter.

That is good traveling on the winter trail, even for a man,  anil especially good for a woman, when  for the greater part of the way she ran,  not rode, holding only by he? hands to  the bars of the dog-sleigh. Tor on some  days it was too cold to ridej fifty and  sixty and Beventy below zero, which  means that one must keep moving.  Just like a man, this woman mushex  rods and trainped, sometimes breaking  a way ahead for  the dogs when she  zero-fog was  too ��������� dense  for   them to  see.   Just like a man, too, when out of  reas_ oi   the  road Thouses,   she   made  camp   at   night-time   beside   the   trail,  and slept, the deep warm sleep of the  outdoor North.   A hole in the' enow for  _ bsfl, a few fir branches for a mattress,   and   her   Arctic   dog-robes    for  bedsoreads,   she   lay   herself   down  to  sleep, alone; and at grey dawn she was  up and off again.    Not many   women  could have done It, but this woman did  it, and suffered nothing moro Qerious  than the loss of a few pounds weight  in her two months on, the winter trail.  Strange honeymoon trips  sometimes  fall to the lot of  northern brides.    A  newly-wedded   couple   at    Whiteborse  wished to go to Dawson, their hoine-  to-hs.

Mr. Mackay is the>uper'  intendent of the Dominion Experimental Farm at Indian-Head, and he is the  only superintendent that institution haa  ever had.    More than that, be  is the  pioneer,   the  father,   of   agriculture  in  Western" Canada.    Saskatchewan is hia  Province now, and Saskatchewan people  claim him aB their Grand Old Man, but  Mr? Mackay _ field of influence knows  no Provincial boundaries. He camo into  the West long before the thr.ee Prairie  Provinces were formed, and he is known  and remembered best, perhaps, for his  tvorrk during the long, hard years prior  to 1905. Early in July it was announced  that Angus, Mackay was being retired  by the Government from the farm at Indian Hoad to take a better position, and  from  Manitoba  to   Alberta,  from  the  boundary line to the northerly iixaita uj.  the agricultural belt, this general word  was   spoken:     "There   is   nothing  too  food in this world that they can do for  im." . : "   A   "  Angus Mackay   came   to   the great  Northwest in 1882.    He was amongst  the first  contingent  of settlers which  came   West   f rom   Ontario   upon   the  opening ofthe C. P. YR. to Manitoba.  The majority of   the old Ontario immigrants   at   that   time   were   taking  land in the southern   paTt   of   Manitoba,   and   in that district to-day, excepting the Mennonites, the sons and  daughters  of   the  pioneers   in  Bruc-,  Huron  and  Grey  counties    still   comprise a large percentage of the population.     Whether   or   not   it   was   because    Mr.    Maekay    and   the    three  friends   who    accompanied   him   were  not   descenda; "s-of'.Huron,   Grey   or  Bruce,   or because   thoy had   a   more  canny  genius, for   locating   good Boii,  that thev   passed   Manitoba   by   and  proceeded  to  lands    situated   on   the  eastern  threshold   ef   the   Northwest  Territories   is   not  known.    But  subsequent   events   would   rather   go   to  support    the    la-tter    tneory.     At   any  rate, they were in the van of the first  big trek of  Ontairo.  farmers   to   the  Waaf   ������nd, like their Celtic forefather?  amid' the" primitive   and   pioneer surroundings    in    Eastern    Provinces    in  the    early    days,   they   have   labored  hard and well, and have set up standards of   thoroughness which  ate   just  now beginning   to   prevail throughout  the entire plains country.  The three men who cam������ West with  Angus   Mackay   in    'eighty-two   wero  Williamson,   Miller   and   Boon.     They  all  hailed  from   Ontario   County,    On-  torio, in the vicinity of Pickering.  Mr.  Mackay,   who,   was   born   in   that   lo-    ;  cality in  1841,  waa  alBO   educated   at  the  old  Whitby  Grammar  School.   In  .1866  ho   was  lieutenant  iu  the  34th  Begiment  of  tfort -Erie,  Und  was  engaged  in   active   Bervlce   at  the  time  of the Fenian Raid. So, although being  known  now  principally  for  hia   work  of  the  past  thirty  years  in  Western  Canada  Mr.   Mackay   spent    the   first.,  forty-one years    of   his   life    in    tlio  East.

Peter Andestad  went to Spokane,  Siio makes Available Feeding Value o*?  Stalk aa Well as Ear.  By the use of the silo and harvesting  the corn plant for silage the .feeding  value of the plant is increased from  $10: to $12 per acre. It is estimated  that oo per cent of the feeding value of  the corn plant is in tbe ear of corn and  40 per cent is in the stalk.  If a field of corn which wouid make  forty bushels per acre is harvested in  the usual way of gathering the corn  and leaving the stalk stand we have  harvested Only 60 per ceht of the crop.  The forty bushels of corn at 50 cents  per bushel are worth $20, but if the  stalks have two-thirds the feeding  value of the grain tbe stalks are worth  from $10 to $12 or $15 per acre, depending upon the quality of the crop  and tbo condition tbey are in when  harvested for silage.  If the stalks are left in tbe field tbey  have a feeding value of from $1 to  $1.00 or $2.50 per acre. This decreased  value of the cornstalk when left ln  the field is due t_ the fact that when  the stalk ls left standing lt loses ita  moisture and the fiber becomes hard,  woody and indigestible.  It is therefore evident that to obtain  the maximum feeding value of tha  corn c-i'op it should be harvested and  made into sllago nnd that tbe use ol  the silo will increase the feeding value  of tbe corn plants from $10 to $12 pot  acre���������Roy O.
