Old Silas K. was level headed

Of cans and crusts and bacon rind,
Financial men af the west
who have beea studying the
condition of the world grain
market say ihat Canada's
wheat outlook is the most
favorable in her history.
Climatic conditions may still
have an effect on the crop,
they admit, but so finely sensitized is tho market that any
reverses suffered on the prai-
j ries are immediately reflected
'and compensated for in the
price of wheat.
It is now being generally
admitted that the United
States will have no exportable
surplus of wheat. Her crop is
said to be about 190,000,000
bushels below that of last
year. The Indian crop is
40,000,000 bushels below the
yield of 1924.
Canada thus becomes the
world's   greatest   source   ofi
[wheat supply, strengthening
her supremacy established in
the pas) decade.
Recovery of sterling in
North America is another
factor cited as a decided advantage to Canada in selling
to her greatest market, the
fflnited|Kingdom. In the past,
with sterling below par, buyers
in the old country have endeavored to purchase as much
of their wheat as possible
from the Balkans and other
lands where their money was
above or at least as good as
its face value,
Vancouver is anticipating
b heavy flow of' wheat westward, beginning in the latter
part of September and reaching thc higest peak between
November and February.

rsilway to make surveys in Laurier,

According to the Seattle statement, the Great Northern would
discontinue its line between Cascade
aod Grand Forka by making a con«
nection with the Canadian Pacific.
The Canadian Pacific would abandon its tine over the Eholt grade,

Poems From Other Lands
When the Spaniads first invaded the Andean
region  of South America the guinea pig was
fjund domesticated and living in large numbers in the houses of the Indians, by whom it
was used for food.   The cavy was carried  to
Europe by Dutch traders during the sixteenth
Hintury. S'nce then it has been kept in  the
"Id world and in North America chiefly   as a
net, and until recently has been regarded as an
animal of little practical utility. The name pig
is readily suggested liy its form, but the origin
■ if "guinea" as applied to it  is unknown, but
may be a corruption of "Guinea pig."

Were I springtime breeze,
A breeze in the spring when the song-birds pair,
I'd tenderly smooth and caress your hair,
Aud hide from your eyes in the budding trees.
Were 1 a Junertime rose,
I'd glow in the ardor of summer's behest,
Aod die in my passion upon your breast,
In the passion that only a lover knows.
Were I a lilting bird,
I'd fly with my song and my joy and my pain.
And beat at your lattice like summer-rain,
Till I knew that your inmost heart was stirred
Were I winged dream,
I'd steal in the night to your slumbering side,
And the joys of hope in your bo.ioin I'd hide,
And pass on my way liko a murmuring stream.
Tell me the truth, the truth,
Have I merited woe at your tapering hands,
Have you wilfully burst lovo's twining strands,
And cant to the winds affection aud ruth?
'Twas a fleeting vision of joy,
While you loved me you plumed your silvory wings,
And in fear of the pain that a man's love brings
You fled to a bliss thnt has no alloy.

Vlctorla, which with its suburbs haa a population of 60,000, ls also
the capital of Hritish Columbia, the legislative buildlngB forming an
attractive picture for the new arrival disembarking ln tbe inner harbor.
The city, located on the southeast extremity of Vancouver Island, ls
practically In the same latitude as Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and other
eastern cities, yet because of the "warm Japan current that fringes British
Columbia's coast, Victoria enjoys the year round a climate unsurpassed
In the Dominion. Tbe mean temperature ln winter is 42 degrees and in
summer 61. Coupled with this is an average yearly rainfall of only
27.45 Inches, less than balf the average precipitation on the adjacent
With this salubnous climate outdoor sports are possible the entire
year, five or six golf courses being available ln and around tbe city.
For the motorist, not only Victoria but the entire Vancouver Island
provides drives of varying lengths into a territory that has been named
a "Thousand Miles of Wonderland." Greatest of all these is the famous
Malahat Mountain drive running north from Victoria and rising to more
than 1,250 feet above the sea level, affording a view of sea and mountain
unexcelled. t
In and around Victoria are sufficient tourist attractions to keep the
newcomer busy for many days. TheBe include the Butchart sunken garden!, transformed within the last decade into a veritable fairyland of
flowers, shrubs, lawns, roses, waterfalls and lake; the astrophyslcal
observatory with the second largest telescope ln the world, and 1,(00
acres of beautiful parks featuring Beacon Hill Park virtually In the heart
of the city.
In the summer more than a hundred shady beaches and romantic
little bays dotted along seventy miles of water frontage lure the holiday-
maker. Some face the Straits of Juan de Fuca and open to the sweep
of the Pacific Ocean tides, while others are almost landlocked, with clear,
unruffled waters.
Travelling to Victoria from the mainland Is one of the Joys of a
holiday spent in the capital city. An 82-mlle trip through landlocked,
sheltered "waters past evergreen islands, brings the traveller from Vancouver. Frequent service on palatial steamers of tho Canadian Pacific
Railway is afforded to Victoria from Vancouver and Seattle direct, while
a further steamer to Nanaimo affords an optional route. Rail connection
ls made between Nanaimo and Victoria.
As a further development of Victoria as a winter resort, The Crystal
Garden, an elaborate amusement center, is being erected near the
Empress Hotel. It will be opened for Victoria Day Celebration next May,
a steel and concrete structure with 36,000 wiiuirc feet oi. glazed root
surface. The central feature of the Crystal Garder '/111 be a huge aalt
water swimming pool, the largest on the Pacific Coast.
Nearby the Empress Hotel, overlooks the inner harbour. Located in
spacious grounds, beautiful alike in winter and summer with roses, holly
trees and other shrubs and flowers. This deservedly popular hostelry
has been the temporary home for thousands of visitors.
To the tourist from the Inland cities especially, Victoria affords a
splendid opportunity to view tho ever-interesting i cenes of an ocean port

Old fashioned Quebec tug* at the hearUtrlngs of
the summer visitor, because her appeal ta personal.
Without Intention, m to do, ahe haa struok what tbe
advertising men work so hard to acquire.. .the human
Interest angle.
Quebec la natural, simple, lovable. In oar race for a
living we of the cities have reduced life to a system
with every action in subordination to hours and minutes.
But ln Quebec the habitant! rises above the leash.
He has something ln himself which holds him to old
ways. To family life, to the farm, to the horse and
hand-plough; to the scythe, to cows. Wives and daughters and boys of all ages lend a hand at everything. All
the changes of the seasons fit ln to the scheme of life.
And yet there sems to be no particular scheme, no
hurry, none of that driven feeling.    No friction.
And so when we get into Quebec we are sensible of a
freedom of spirit The shackles of "the drive" fall
away as we come once more under the benison of the
simple and the fundamental.
Here by the road are the wayside Crosses common in
Old France and once ht Old England. The Mower is
abroad ln the fields. The dogs drawing their little
carts still hold the road.
And nothing is more humanly appealing than these
dog carts of the Quebec highway. The "Dog of Flanders" has won bis way to publicity on the Bcreen, but
these "chlens" of Quebec have had no Jackie Coogan to
do them justice.
And yet what a part they play in the life of this great
Province, far larger in extent than Flanders. How the
dogs fill niches in the households. Jobs long ago eliminated from our scheme of life, are performed by the
dog carts as a matter of course, ln Quebec. Boys of
the family break their hand in from babyhood, liarness-
IM, nnharntff'ng driving "le chlen."    The boy that as

"Deep meaning oft lies hid ln childish play" down in
And yet the dog cart is not merely a means toward
an end. As farm life ls arranged in Quebec, thc dog
cart is no mere child's toy, but part and parcel of French
Boys sent an errand cover the miles in the dog cart.
Wood to be brought from the distant woodlot on the
mountainside is loaded into the little cart. With the
aid of these "tiny horses and carts" small boys do this
work quite easily, releasing their fathers and big
brothers to men's jobs at the plough or with the heavy
Textile workers in the big mill below Montmorency
Falls, living in Saint Gregolre and other villages nearby,
have their dinner-pails brought to them by tbeir small
boys In dog carts, and lf you happen along this road at
dinner-time it ls to see perhaps as many as thirty or
forty of these little chariots.
The speed attained of the dog is surprising, especially
when homeward bound. Then, little M'sieu can hardly
hold him ln.
But you must not think 'tis only youth that these gay
dogs of Quebec serve, their tails wagging, flying along
with the baby in the cart and the family brood of boys
and girls running heltei skelter gathering framboise in
their palls. What would the old... the oldcouplcs, tbe
old women, do without their old dog and his Httle cart?
But, I think perhaps one never realizes more, how
much a part of every day life the dog cart ls, until you
happen along by some wayside smithy and see the smith
hard at work turning, twisting, heating, hammering the
miniature axles and (ires in the most matter of fact
manner, part of the day's work, as much as shoeing a
horse.—Victoria Hayward.

Sanitary Aspects of
Farm Water Supply
It is a well known fact tbat with
the introduction of public water
supplies in cities and towns whhh
had previously been dependent on
domestic wells, tbe deatb rate from
typhoid fever, the most serious of
water borne dfseaFoe, bas decreased
to a remarkable extent.
In our conntry districts, however,
wbere tbe scattered population
makes tbe establishment of a publi-
water supply system impossible,
tbe farmer is forced to depend upon
bis own domestic source, wbich is,
in most cases, tbe shallow well.
That euch a well csn be a source of
positive danger from typhoi ', dys<
nfcery, diarrhoea and otber disorders has beeu amply proven, but
still many farmers do not realise
fully the importance of a pure un
polluted water supply, or the danger
to tbeir families and tbeir stock
lurking in contaminated water.
The location of the farm well is
frequently faulty and denotes a
lack of knowledge of the danger to
health from water wben there is
any change of drainage or leaking
from such sources of pollution as
barnyards, cesspools, privy, man»
ured fields, sink drains, etc. Not
only sbould lae well be placed at a
reasonable distance from such
sources of filth,say forty to fifty feet,
but also, if possible, on higher
ground. Tbe more porous tbe
ground, tbe greater should be the
distance from nny cont minating
Even when tbe well is removed
from any source of pollution, tbe
ground water sbould be made to
fitter tbrough at least ten to fifteen
feet of soil befoie entering the well.
■Soil tends to remove germs and iin»
purities from surface washings. Tbe
water, however, should be made  to
really filter through tbe soil by insuring tbat tbe sides of tbe well, for
a distance of twelve to fifteen fe*>t,
are tight and impervious to water.
Tbe top, naturally, should be so
constructed that oo - ontamination
can enter.
Water may be seriously polluted
without showing tbis by its taste pr
appearance. A bright, sparkling
water is by no means a guarantee of
a pure supply. Wben, howeyer,
water from a well becomes cloudy
or turbid after a beovy raio, there
is evidently some defect, for this
condition indicates tbat surface
washings ore entering without proper filtration.
The divisions of bateriology aod
fbemistry at tbe Central experimental farm will analyse water sup.
plies submitted by farmers living
within a teasonable distanoe. Application for instructions as to taking tbe sample should first be made,

One morning be was miiking a
brindle cow when tbe animal lifted
her foot and kicked over tbe milk
pail. Tbe farmer got up from his
stool, looked gravely at the puddle
of milk tbat was spreading over the
bain floor and remarked to a neighbor who happened to be present:
"Tbere; that's tbe only fault this
cow has—that is, if you can call it
a fait. I suppose it's nothing but
thoughtlessness "
