Though this  contest was not announced until late in the year many people from all parts of this broad Dominion sent in their almanacs and the greatest enthusiasm has been manifested.  If there was ever any doubt as to the popularity of the  diary feature of Dr. Chase's Almanac it can certainly no  longer exist, and judging by the nature of the entries in  these books they ntust prove of great value to persons keeping such records.  This is a copy of the report sent in by the committee of  newspaper men who acted as judges :���������  Toronto, Feb. 10, 1906.  /Messrs.

London.���������In an interview with the  representative ol' the Daily Graphic, a  gentleman who'has recently' returned  from 'Northern Nigeria has furnished  some intej'esling particulars, in addition to those already published, regarding Live pagan tribe, known as the  Munshis, against whom a 'British, punitive expedition is now proceeding.  Very little, he says, is known about  these people who have no political relations whatever with the outside  ������������������world,, pnly traders,;generally speaking, havo travelled their country, and  these, as a rule, are never anxious to  talk ;about it, seeing that they have  gone there .Without permission. Tiro.  Munshis originally came up from the  south��������� from tho Cross river, hut they  thoir present country,, as it is only  are a comparatively now arrival in  within the las#t ceutury that they have  'been 'established in the vicinity of the  ���������Benue livor. The country covers a  ���������space of Homo 0,000 or 7,000 square  ariiles and extends down to Southern  Nigeria, hut in regard to its population littlo of authentic character is  known, although travoltors have spoken freoly *6f hundroils of thousands.  Physically spnaking, tlio Mwnshis  ������iro a fjplondid race, line hunters, and  above*'ri.ll,;good agriculturalists. Thoy  livo ia 11, grout cotton-groWing country  and turn out excellent cloth, which is  tho staple .currency. They aro also  very keen oii iron, and have boon actually know'n to dig up tolograph poles  and men., (hont dowu  for their own  purposes.   There/, are  numerous  good  roads  throughout the country,  which  s a unique feature.      Tlie big game  hunting, includes   elephants,  and  the  principal    weapon* of defence is the  poisoned arrow,   Tliere are, of course  undreds of different kinds of poison,  lit the one employed more generally  y the Munshis is a particularly dead-  y one, even stronger, perhaps, than  liar, made from the leaf of the Strophantus.      Generally  speaking,  the  .Iunshis are an irreconciliable people  -in fact, tliey have as much as said  hat they do not want outside inter-  erence, but the trader or big game  unter  can pass  through their  terrl-  pries unmolested, although they take  good care to exact a toll on his goods.

The primitive religion of the Turks  in Central Asia included the worship  of water, air, earth, as also the sacrifice of oxen under the shade of huge  /trees. Even to this day one witnesses  i'> Asia Minor and in the vicinity of  Constantinople giganf plane trees  held in reverence by successive gener-  tionk. After their exit from their land  of origin the Turks successively became Buddhists, Nestorians, " Christians, Mohammedans, with perfect in-  diii'erence according to tlie nature of  thoir conquests and the necessities of  their politics. This entire absence ol  concern in matters moral was counterbalanced by their esprit de corps, discipline, and passive'obedience to thoir  chief. A military people, they possessed the qualities and defects of a soldier on tho march; thoy wero bloodthirsty and brutal, but also candid  and generous, obstinate, but firm on  tlio point of honor; now wrathful and  then mirthful, on the spur of the mom-  but, now full of activity, succumbing  without transition to a state of utter  indolence.���������From Armenia.

Stringer, an Ontario Graduate of Wycliffe College, Announced  as the Successor to This Most Remarkable Anglican Missionary to  the Northwest of the Dominion aa  Bishop of Selkirk���������Their Lives.  The announcement that Rev, J. O.  Stringer, a graduate of Wycliffe College, and an Ontario man, has been  appointed to the office of Bishop of Selkirk ls interesting. It is so, not alone  because of the personalty of the hew  prelate, but, in addition, because of  the remarkable character of the man  whom Mr. Stringer succeeds. The immediate predecessor of Bishop Stringer  Is Bishop Bompas, one of the greatest  and most self-sacrificing missionaries of j  the Anglican Church.  From London to the Yukon.  Bishop Bompas was educated with  great care In England, and was designed for clerical work there. But he!  attended the Church of St. Giles' in  the Fields, London, one Sunday night  and heard Bishop Anderson, the flrst  Anglican bishop to the Northwest, and  the predecessor of Archbishop Mach-  rae, preach a missionary sermon. That  settled the fate'of the young man. To  the Northwest he was determined to  go. A fine scholar, a linguist of great  talent, the then Mr. Bompas gave up  all his chances for preferment and proceeded to Fort Garry, where ln due time  ha was admitted to the priesthood. In  the year 1865���������exactly 40 years ago���������  Mr. Bompas arrived at Fort Simpson,  the most northerly portion of British  Columbia. From that point he worked  north into the Yukon, preaching to the  Indians and establishing mission stations. He became well versed in the  Indian languages and could speak the  Tudukh fluently; Ultimately, he was  known as one ot the best friends of  the people of that bleak land.  oeiKirK, ana it notea as tne scene o*  the remarkable work among the Tsim-  psean Indians These people were rescued from barbarism 20 or 30 years  ago and became highly civilized. Dr.  DuVerhet, formerly of Toronto Junction, is the Bishop of Caledonia. He  is a Wycliffe graduate, and is very  successful in his new sphere, which  bids fair to become more important  owing to the circumstance that the  Grand Trunk Pacific wtll pass through  the diocese in the course of time. The  three northern bishops are strong men  physically, and they need to be. for  their work ls exceedingly hard.  Care of Brood  Sows In Winter  *  An Ancient Mystery.  The location "of the earthly paradise  or Giu-doji of .Kdon is still a matter of  dispute among Orientalists and scriptural scholars of highest reputation.  Some have endeavored to locate it by  tho fruits and mineral productions  named in tlio '.Biblical descriptions as  they appear in>the second chapter of  Genesis; others by tho rivers mentioned in versos 11 to 14 of the abovo  mentioned chapter. The weight of investigation and tradition inclines to nn  agreomont that tke Tigris and tlio  Euphrates of .modern geography nre  the third and fourth rivers mentioned  in tho Miblionl description of the gnr-  clou. Thoso who agree so far differ  widely uh to what rivers should now  bo regarded us the ancient Pison and  Gilion. The Buddhist scholars, although tliey reject our JJiblo in the  greater part, incline to the opinion  that tlio Pison is the snerod tiiinges,  and that tho tlilion is nono other than  the Nile. Ah to the lust, it is altogether probable tlmt they are correct  on that point, because tlio llibliciil  account plainly nu,\is that (Jilion "cuiii-  piiNseth  the whole land of  Ethiopia."

You will notice, however, that none  of these theorists Iiiih been ablo to net  the four rivers mentioned in the Biblical account properly located, Neither  have they found a placo    where one  (front riror "separates into four  loads." This being tlto conn it is  hardly necessary to ntnto thnt the exact location of Kdon i������ a mystery that  will probably novor bo solved.  BABY'8 SMILE.

He became the first1  Bishop of Athabasca ��������� as his vast  northern diocese was called. Owing to  the increase of work, a new diocese  was created in Athabasca eight years  later. There were 'thus two Episcopal  Bees, and Bishop Bpmpas was at liber-  ,ty~t3**fafte*3S'"'rwffi'b  selected the farthest' north���������Mackenzie  River. Once again, in 1891, was the  diocese cut in twoV And once again  did the bishop select as his half that  which was least attractive, the northern part, known as the Diocese of  Selkirk. Fromv the day Bishop Bompas entered the Arctic circle as a  missionary he has been but once . in  civilization. He returned to liondon to  be consecrated, and immediately after  that event, In 1874, repaired to his  field of labor, and has remained there  ever since. The devotion to iho work  ls not inspired by,any degree of comfort appertaining to It. From year's  end to year's end the bishop is engaged  in Arctic traveling, and the Episcopal  palace, a log cabin, is precisely tho  sort of place In which the average man  would not care to summer���������much less  to spend the long night of tlie northern  winter.  Three Score Years and Ten.  Bishop Bompas is exactly 70 years  of age, and 40 years of his life,  minus the brief holiday 30 years ago,  haive been spent among the Indians  and Eskimos of the Arctic, and in  the stress and strain of tho comfortless frozen north, He has worked  continuously. Ho hns translated sacred writings into the Indian languages.  He has taught In his mission schools.  He has preached all over that vast territory, He has even written, for ho is  a'man of flno intellect, .hymns and  poems which arc notable for tho culture  and for the piety they display,  The Now Prelate.  The new bishop. Mr.  Stringer,   has  had a ta������tc of the  hardships of the  north,     Ho wont from Wycliffe soon  after his graduation   to   labor   under  Bishop Reeve, of tho neighboring diocese.     After  doing  very   hard   work  thoro ha was chosen to  take up Ids  residence on H'srsoholl Island, the Island that It farthest north in British  territory.   It Is within tho Arctic circle, and ls bleak and absolutely tree-  less,   for olght months in the year It  la Icebound.

"Breeches." in the strict meaning of  that term, were worn by the semicivi-  lized men of the east long ages before  a single page of" the New Testament  was written, having been quite common among the Medes and Persians,  the Phrygians, the Gauls and the Teuton's. Breeches were very "brief articles of apparel, scarcely covering the  hips in the majority of Instances and  never reaching nearer than six inches  of the knee.      ���������  "Pantaloons" were exaggerated  forms of stockings reaching from the  hips to the tmkless and as tight-fitting  as a pair of knit drawers. They were  usually of three different colors���������black  at the hips, red from hip to knee and  blue to the termination at the ankle.  They came in vogue during the first  half of the fifteenth centyry at Venice  and were worn by the devotees of the  patron saint, Pantaloon. Such garments were always. called pantallni by  the Italians.,  ' "Trousers," the only proper word to  express the existing styles in "pants,"  followed closely after the "knee  breeches" of the Revolutionary period,  being first worn in England at Oxford  and Cambridge in 1812.  Remarkable Feat.  Recently an Indian fakir appeared at  a circus in Berlin, where he astonished  the audience by lifting a boy with h'.������  eyelids. The boy made himself as  small as possible and was put into a  net 'to. which was secured a string that  was provided on each end with a little  cup just large enough to fit over the  eye. The rakir pressed these little cups  over his eyes, where they held fast,  then threw his head back and slowly  straightened his body, thus lifting his  burden, which* he "then carried abciut,  his arms being outstretched all the  time, and sfinally lowered it slowly tc  the ground again. How is it possible  for any man to do this? . The only ex-  ^planation is that the cups were fitted  into the eye sockets ���������sc^"fe|~t"HlyT'lTeia;  on the edges of the sockets, but it is  not likely that'the trick will be imitated by even those prestigitators' who  consider themselves very expert  , a  For early spring pigs select a wel$  grown sow pig, preferably eight or  more months old, if you are just starting to raise porkers, says H.

PAIR OF TOCNG BERKSHIRE SOWS.  should be roomy, dry and warm. ThiB  pen should be provided with a railing  or fender around the sides. A 2 by 6  scantling spiked securely to fixed blocks  six inches high makes a. good railing:  and may save a good pig from being  lain on. The little fellows learn to  snuggle under these fenders nnd keep  out of danger. Some breeders advocate?  bedding heavily, claiming the sow will  lie away from the pigs and not make a  nest, as wben she is scrimped for bed*  ding. However, we always bed sparingly with chaff or the sweepings from  the hay barn. We keep tbe pen dry  and clean. A damp pen is responsible  for many losses.  It is advisable to watch a young sow  with her first litter and be on band to  render_assistancfl-if-Jieedcd. ItLa_sow_  has successfully raised one Jitter we  let nature take its course. A covered  pall of hot ashes will elevate the temperature of a hogpen on a bitter February or March night. After the little  pigs have sucked ouce they seldom get  chilled. Feed sparingly for the first  three days, thou gradually increase to  the capacity of the sow if the litter Is  large.  Arc of Brood Sown.  The length of time that a brood sow  may be profitably kept is determined  by ber capacity and power of giving  a regular supply of milk for her young.  Shortly, It may be snid thut Hhe should  bo kept, as long ns she breeds nnd milks  well, snys American Cultivator.   Continued selection und retention of the  best youug sows for breeding purposes  is one of tlio most effective methods of  improving a herd of pigs.  The opinion  hold by many that pigs from tlio first  litter of a young sow aro Inferior to-  thoso from subsequent Utlors Is not  well founded,   Quito ns good pigs can  bo obtained,,from a young sow, provided sho ls well grown boforo producing hor litter, as from the mime sow at  a later date.   The keeping of sows for  the production of pigs liilcndod for  salo at au early ago is u syslem pritcv  tlced by many.   Coarse boned, heavy  eared, ill shaped pigs look larger at the  ago of eight weeks than well shaped  ones.   Such animals do not, however,  i meet fhe reiifilreiucnts of Iho trade and  are llierefiire not *--������-*. proflf.-ihlo to tho  j breeder.

The  college we etttjtded wae one at which  the discipline wua severe and the requirements-for graduation wire exac'tiii-*.

The  medical student, however Teas in a fur  less enviable plight. He found that the  exnmiiiHtion would be for the most part  upon tlie anatomy of the leg. and this  was the one tirnuch of the course he had  neglected. He .confided in hie roommate  and wailt'd out his sorrows.  "'If I only had u les to dissect/ said  he, 'I would pass thot examination at the  head of my class.'  "It was here thnt his roommate rose  sublimely to the occasion. He rolled up  his trousers and insisted that his frieud  amputate his leg nt the knee.

The greeting was, of  course, affecting, and then the doctor inquired how the lawyer was getting on ia  the world.

'I M-ant a murder case,' said he; 'one  that will attract special attention and Involve some well known cltiaen,'  "The doctor excused himself and, picking up a heavy poker, left the room.

My size  and my skill as a wrestler, that shortly  Insured for me the respect of the boys,  helped me to win the esteem of the  master. I learned my lessons and kept  out of mischief. But others of equal  proficiency were uot so fortunate. He  was apt to be hard on a light man who  could be handled without overexertion.  Uncle Eb came in to see me one day  and,sat awhile with me in my seat.  While he was there the master took a  boy by the collar and almost literally  wiped the blackboard with him. There  was a great clatter of heels for a moment Uncle Eb went away shortly and  was at Sol Rollin's when I came to dinner.  "Powerful man, ain't he?" said Uncle  Eb.  "Rather," I said.  "Turned that boy into a reg'lar horse  fiddle," he remarked. "Must 'ave unsot  his reason."  "Unnecessary!" I said.  "Reminded me" o' the time 'at Tip  Taylor got his tooth pulled," said he.  "Shook 'im up so 'at he thought he'd  had his neck put out q' j'int."  Sol RoIIin was one of my studies that  ���������winter. He waa a carpenter by trade,  and his oddities were new and delightful. He whistled as he worked, he  whistled as lie read, he whistled right  merrily as he walked up and down the  streets, a short, slight figure with a  round boyish face and a fringe of iron  gray hair under his chin. The little  man had one big passion���������that for getting and saving. The ancient thrift of  his rac������ had pinched him small and  narrow as a foot is stunted by a tight  shoe. His mind was a bit out of reg-  ister, as we say in the printing bus)  neiss. His vocabulary was rich and  vivid and stimulating.  "Somebody broke into the arsenic to  day," he announced one evening at the  ���������upper table.  "The arsenic.'" said somebody. "What  arsenic?"  "Why the place where they  powder," he answered.  "Oh, the arsenal!"  "Yes, the arsenal,", he said:  with laughter nt his error,  grew serious.  "Stole all the ambition out of it," h  added.  "You mean ammunition, don't you,  Solomon?" his wife inquired.  "Certainly," said he. "Wasn't that  what I said?"  When ho had said u thing that met  his own approval Sol Itollln would  cackle most cheerfully and then crack  a knuckle by twisting u linger. Ills  laugh was mostly out; of register also.  It had a sad lack of relevancy, lie  laughed on principle nit her than provocation. Some sort of secret comedy of  whlcli the world know nothing wns  passing lu his tnliul. It seemed to  bave Its exits anil its entrances, Its villain, its clown and its miser who got  ell the applause.  While working his Joy was uncon-  flneil, Many a time I hnve sat and  watched him iu his little simp, its wln-  jeep tht  cackling  Thou ho  <^ft^  llts xelprd the hlaclihnard with him.  ���������"loW Uilll   ������>HI| l-MllV*.

Then he  continued his sawing and his song,  "Says I, 'Dan Skinner, I think yer  mighty mean'��������� What d' ye want It  fer?" he asked, stopping abruptly.  "Going to make a ruler," 1 answered.  " 'T' sen' me up the river with a  seven dollar team,'" he went on, picking out a piece of smooth planed lumber and handing it to me.  "How much is it worth?" I inquired.  He whistled a moment as lie surveyed it carefully.  " 'Bout a cent," he answered seriously.  I handed him the money and sat  down awhile to watch him as he went  on with his work. It was the cheapest  amusement I have yet enjoyed. Indeed, Sol Rollin became a dissipation,  a subtle and seductive habit, that grew  upon me, and on one pretext or another  I went every Saturday to the shop if  I had not gone home.  "What ye goin' f be?"  He.stopped his saw and looked at  me, waiting for my answer.  At last the time had come when I  must declare myself, and I did.  "A journalist," I replied.  "What's that?" he inquired curiously.  "An editor," I said.  "A printer man?"  "A printer man."  "Huh!" said he. "Mebbe I'll give ye  a job. Sairey tol' me I'd orter t'0 'ave  some cards printed. I'll want good  plain print, 'Solomon Rollin, Carpenter  an' .1'ine.r, Hillsborough, N. Y.' Soun's  purty good, don't it?"  "Beautiful," I answered.

Then I'll git a  few struck off fer the folks here.  Guess they'll think I'm glttln* up 'n  the world."  He shook and snickered with anticipation of the glory of it. rure vanity  inspired him in the mat lor, and it had  In it no vulgar consideration of business policy. He whistled a lively tune  as ho bent to his work again.  ''Tor sister says ye're a splendid  scholar," said he. ' "Iloar'u ''or brag-  gin' 'bout ye t'other night. She thinks  a good deal 0' her brother, I can toll  ye. Guess I know what she's goin' t'  give'ye Crlssnms."  "What's that?" I asked, with n curiosity more youthful than becoming.  "U.on't ye never let on," said he,  "Never," said I.  "lloar'n' 'em tell," he said, "'twas a  gol' lockup with -'er pletur' In it."  "Oh, 11 locket!" I exclaimed.  "That's it," he replied, "an' pure*gol'  too,"  1 turned .to go,  "Hope she'll grow up n savin' worn-  nn," lie remarked. " 'Fruld she won't  never he very good 1' work."  "Wliv not?" I iuiiulred.

We went out a good deal  evenings to concerts, lectures at the  churches or the college or to visit some  of the many people who invited us to  their homes.  We had a recess of two weeks at the  winter holidays, and David Brower  came after us the day the term ended.  Oh, the great happiness of that day  before Christmas when we came flying  home in the sleigh behind a new team  of grays and felt the intoxication of the  frosty air, and drove lu at dusk after  the lamps were lit and we could see  mother and Uncle Eb and Grandma  Blsnette looking out of the window,  and a steaming dinner on the table!

CANOEISTS  By DONALD ALLEN  Vhk I'or OIil Shoes,  Janitors collect the shoes cast away  by tenants and send them to auction  rooms, where they are sorted into piles  marked "Men," "Women," "Children."  Several poor people made fair bids,  but the auctioneer did not seem anxious to sell. Finally a man pushed his  way through the crowd and offered 10  cents apiece for the whole lot. His bid  was successful,  "l was killing time with talk waiting  for that fellow," said the auctioneer  afterward, "lie nlwnys pays high for  these shoes, and ho does not want them  for wearing, either. He wants to beat  them out for the leather in them. Ho  gets what mhtoriiil tliere Is, puts It  through a process and makes stamped  Imitation leather novelties, such as picture frames, bngw, pocketbooks, penknife holders ind even chair backs aud  seats, lie finds a ready sale for these  novelties and gets a good price for  them."  CopuriQht, 1905, by .McClure, PMHip* & Co.  Among the things Pillsbury Smith  prided himself on were his luck with  women and the way that he could  manage a canoe. It was said of him  that he had such a taking way that in  seven minutes by the clock he could  make an old maid wince with palpitation and tliat he could manage a canoe  better than any Indian ever born.  There might have been other things in  his life to brag of, but they were kept  ln the background. He was a man of  about thirty-eight, w;ell to do, and mat-"j  rimony was not in his line.  There were three or four reasons  why Pillsbury Smith appeared at Gos-  port one day in August and informed  the landlord of the village inn that he  might stay the month out. One was  canoeing. He was an authority on  hooks and lines and bait and fish. At  Gosport a bay Bwept ln almost to the  steps of the hotel, and one part of it  in escaping to the lake again fell over  a dam and furnished water power to a  sawmill. It was an ideal place for  canoeing, and the fishing was always  good.  On the first morning after his arrival  Mr. Smith arose at the early hour ot  7; but, early as it was, a fine view rewarded him as he stepped out on the  veranda. A girl about eighteen years  old was paddling about the bay in a  canoe. She was bareheaded and attired in such a manner that he easily  reasoned it out that she was camping  with a party on one of the islands in  the bay.  It was altogether Improbable that she  had heard of his arrival in the village,  but she maneuvered up and down in  front of the hotel in a way that gave,  him the impression that she was showing off for his benefit. This naturally  flattered him, and when he saw that,  according to his standard, she didn't  know the first thing about managing a  canoe, the way to make hor acquaintance seemed clear to him. Before he  -Could.Jianh.ch his canoe she_had.Vdisap^  peared, but his disappointment was not  to last long.  At 9 o'clock he took his station, at  the head of the mill race to fish. Within half an hour the girl joined him.  That Is, she appeared on the other side  I  SE)  nicKMlnu; tlir* lliver.  In the little Itnlkan state of Ron-  mania It lias been the custom from  tlmo Immemorial for towns by tho  river Danube to keep tho Christmas  feast by n peculiar ceremony called  "blessing tho rivor."

Most of her  time was spent on the bay, paddling,  fishing and shooting at mud hens witb  a shotgun, and she had been seen paddling along the edge of the nine foot  dam as if she contemplated a trip over*  Its brink.  "Ba Jove, but I will take her under  my wing, as It were," said the club  man to himself,.and that night he left  orders to be called at 6 o'clock next  morning.  He launched his bark just as the girl  came sweeping up, but though he planned to pass within six feet of her she  stared straight ahead and did not acknowledge his existence by so much as  the flicker of an eyelash. She showed  no disposition to leave tlie waters because he was there, but paddled about  for nearly an hour to get an appetite  tor breakfast Tho first time Mr. Smith  addressed her he said:  "Your pardon, I am'.sure, but you sit  too far forward in your canoe. The  bow of the craft should rest on the surface, Instead of pushing the water in  front of it"  There was ho response, except that  oerhaps she moved an inch or two far-  tner forward*, ana ten minutes later he  tried again.  "If I may make so bold I would say  that you grip your paddle altogether  too high."  She let her hands slide up to grip it  higher and turned the bow of the canoe  toward camp. Mr. Smith hoped the  girl would return to the race that afternoon to fish, and he was not disappointed. She appeared at half past 2 o'clock  and went right to business. He gave  her a friendly nod as she appeared, but  her eyes were on her fish line.  The club man saw that he had a flint  hearted girl to deal with and he did  not know bow to act' with her. The  best he could hope for was that she  might fall into the race from her'insecure position, and it was this hope that  had caused him to tie his canoe at a  convenient spot. If he could have the  luck to save her life she must unbend.  The thing that Mr. Smith wanted to  happen did happen. The girl was playing a big fish when she suddenly lost  her balance and went into the water  with a great splash. While Mr. Smith  was hoping for and half expecting it,  he wasn't prepared for the event. He  had to secure his fish pole and then untie it. It was all of a minute and a  -halfibefore,he_w:fts-afloat_^Ehen_the_i  girl was out of sight. He drove the  canoe down the race, but fate was '"���������  against him. It struck a snag and  turned over, and he had a hard swim  to reach the bank. When he had shaken tbe water from his clothes and looked around the first thing he saw was  the girl. She was fishing in her old  place.  "Ba Jove, but I thought you drowned!" called Mr. Smith when he.had  walked up tho stream to his old place.  Tho girl lifted hor hook and renewed  the bait, but'that was all. Mr. Smith  and his canoe withdrew for the rest of  the afternoon, but thnt night ho took a  terrible resolve. That girl should recognize his presence on earth or he  would run her down, and drown her.  He had fully made up his mind to that  when he fell asleep and he was firm  In the resolve whon ho turned out at  sunrise.  He was hardly nflont when he caught  sight of the other canoeist Something  In her attitude expressed defiance. Sho  paddled up the bay, and he followed.  When a gotfd half mile abovo tho dam  sho turned her ennoo and stiffened up.  It was a plain challenge to a race, nnd  Mr. Smith accepted it,  Tho girl hnd a start of thirty feot,  and tho man generously allowed hor to  keep It for half the distance. Then, to  his surprise, though lie put forth evwy  effort ho could to close tho gap, ho could  only do so Inch by Inch, Soon ho saw  that sho was making for the center of  the dam, Had lie been offered .^ 1 UO to  send his canoe over Unit fall ho would  huvo reiiiseil it.

That the Canadian West is not on-'  ly the country of opportunity but the  country of young men, the prominent  positions held by many in the Province of Manitoba, who are in the  first years of the fourth decade of  their lives afford ample evidence.  No more striking example could be  given than that of the success met  with by Mr. M. E. Nichols, President  of the Telegram Printing Company  and Editor-in-chief of the daily paper  published by that company. Mr.  Nicliolls is not a western man in so  far as years of residence may be  counted, but he is western in his  trend of mind, his virility, his energy,  his independence of thought and fearlessness of expression unrestrained  by the fact that he is a loyal and  leading exponent of the views of a  great political party in Western Can-  -adiw  aan, which was built two hundred years  before to oommemorate the landing of  his ancestor, the little Scottish queen,  when she went over to marry tho Dau-  tohin' Francis II. The ruins of the  little church are still to be seen on the  seashore, and many suggestions have  been made that a fund be raised for  ���������the restoration of the historic shrine.

Maclean, M.P., President of the  World Publishing Company, and a  few years ago he was tendered the  position of managing editor of "The  Toronto World." His success in  that position as editor of the leading  Independent Conservative daily in  the publishing centre of Canada is a  feature of Canadian journalism and  attracted the attention of the leading  Conservatives of Manitoba and the  shareholders of the Winnipeg Telegram.  Mr. Nichols shrewdly saw the opportunities offered a young man as A startling, story eomes from the  managing editor of a great Conser- *north, to the effect that Haywood for  vative orsran in Western Canada and whose murder Charles King was hung  the desirability of financial invest- at Edmonton, is alive,  ment in such an enterprise and he  became Editor-in-chief of the Tele-  pram nnd President of the Telegram  Printing Company.

The   splendid  position  which   Canada enjoys in the British cheese market Is shown by the fact that we not  only supply well up to three-quarters  of Brltains import of cheese, but that  the goods which we send bring a higher price than those shipped from any  other country. During January Can  adian cheese sold in London, according to Weddell & Co.'s Colonial Dairy  Produce Report up to 65s per long  hundredweight, while choicest New  Zealand sold for 64s, and choicest  American 53s.
