IN THE heart of Asia Minor, about
a hundred miles east of Angra,
the  traveler Interested    In    the
past will find a rich field.   It Is Bog-
hf(z Keony, the ruined capital ot the
Bogbaz Keony means the "village
of the throat," for lt is at the end ot
a deep valley that the modern Turkish village lies, in northern Cappado-
cia, and ttie Hlttltcis of the sixteenth
and fifteenth centuries B. C. built
their great fortified oity on the rocky
hillsides nbove the mouth of the valley.
Whether It was Subbl Lulluma or
some othctr musically named gentleman who laid out the city of many
great buildings and strong fortifications, he certainly possessed an appreciation of natural beauty as well
as statesmanship, for, as one climbs
from point to point—from the palace
up to the great citadel; from one
rock, crowned with massive ruins, to
another still more stupendous—one
hardly knows which one to wonder
over and admire more, the strength
i|nd skill displayed in these three or
four thousand-year-old remains or the
glorious views that greet one's eyes
at every turn. M~~
From one corner of the citadel, by
the re-mains of a round tower, you
look straight down four or flve hundred teet of rock into the gloom of a
narrow gorge, at the bottom of which
a stream flows darkly, emd you can
see little but the rock over which
you lean, and the swallows that flash
In and out of the gorgel, and the
eagles that sail to their nests on the
opposite crags. On another Bide of
the cltsjdel, at the foot of the precipice, the same stream winds softly
through trees and grass and flowers.
On the less steep side of the citadel several trenches have) been dug
by excavators. In the earth thrown
out of these trenches peasants have
planted their grain, and thus fertilizing their seed with Hittite remains,
they have raised an abundant crop
witb little labor.
All over the flat top of this acropolis, as well as everywhere else in
the ciity, one may pick up any quantity'of broken pieccB of ajneient pottery—brown, -black, and every Bhade
of red and every degree of fineness.
Much of thiB pottery ls painted, most
of it with simple decoration resembling thtat on the proto-Corinthian or
geometric vases. iSome of it has a
beautiful glaze; some is covered with
a white Blip and padnted in three or
four colors, while most of lt has simply black or dark red markings on
rc|d pottery.
A visit to Boghaz Keony not only
makes one feel quite intimate with
the Hittiites, but also one sees here
that they did many of the things that'
We associate* with much latter peoples
Did the Turks flrst use the star and

governors of Syrian provinces, who,
in the Tel el Amarna tablets, write to
Pharaoh of the difficulties in the way
of maintaining thei rights of the Bgyp
tian government in Syria, but tell
how nobly they were working in their
lord's interests, while ln these newly
found writings of Boghaz Keony the
eame men tdll the Hittite king how
they are pretending to be the humble
servants of Egypt while really obeying the commends of Khattu-Sil, and
the political Intrigues that are here
displayed and the polite sarcasm and
meaningless phrases that pcf-is between these, old writers wight give
points to modern diplomatists,
The sudden stopping of the history
which the tablets tell, aB well as the
condition of the ruins unearthed,
shows ub that some time in the thirteenth century B. C. the great city
was destroyed, probably by a sweeping down of some Ibarbap-ian horde,
thus anticipating (long ages beiore)
the story of the destruction of Rome.
Aijd this Hittite capital was never
again inhabited or rebuilt, for there
ls apparently no trace of Greek or
Roman work or influence; ln the remains. The Hittite power, however,
wtft not destroyed then. Cllicia and
the southern part of Cappadocla bave
numerous monuments which show occupancy by Hittite people till'about
the eighth century B. C.
As one walks away from the citadel in Boghaz Keony to se the various points of special interest within
the five-mile circuit of the ancient
wtf.lB, he comes first to the one place
on; this site where there haB beSit

hieroglyphics ( those hieroglyphics
which are so common all through the
more southern Hittite country). Hhls
one inscription of Boghaz Keony is
so badly worn by time and weather
that it 1 s quite illegible. (Further

THERE has appeared recently in
a number of leading agricultural papers an article entitled
"King Tut's Wheat Grown ln the
West." The article refers to certatln
results obtained by a soldiers ettler
living near Edmonton,Alta.,and gives
the impression that the wheat in
question was discovered in 1922 in
, the ton>b of King Tut-ankb-ameB. As
a) matter of fact the records show
that this wheat was know as far back
jas 1840, when one enterprising gentleman ofered heads at %S each.
The above variety belogs to the
Poulard subspecies of wheat, being
somewhat intermediate between the
common and durum wheats. It has
numerous aliases, the most common
of whioh are Egyptian, Eldorado,
Many-headed, Miracle, Mummy,Seven
headed and Alaska. It has always
been easy to interest people ln this
wheat owing to its branched head.
If an unbranched bead will yield so
much surely a branched head will
yield much more;! While Jiead for
head this may bet rue, yet experiments have not shown tha-t it holds
good acre for acre. This wheat was
probably introduced into North Amer
lea from Europe or Egypt ln colonial
days. It was received by the Philadelphia Society tor Promoting Agriculture in 1807, since which time it
has appeafred periodically under one
name or another.
In 1908 the United States department of agriculture began an extensive Investigation of this wbeat,whlch
Inviwtigiltion continued for several
years. In the meantime it has been
tried by farmers all over tbe United
States, but it Ib not now grown anywhere as a commercial crop. The
fact that It has never become established in Bpiito of the rc-nu (rkulile advertising it has received ls a good
Indication of its inferiority. Promoters, however, resurrect it periodically and, owing to Its striking and
unusual appearance, manage to sell
lt to the unsuspecting farmer at exorbitant prices.
Tbe essential facts concerning
Alaska wheat have been summed up
very nicely in a bulletin published
by the United States department of
agriculture^Bulletln No. Ari7, 1916,
P. 27—at the conclusion of extensive
tests conducted at many points inthe
United States, t.p follows:
1. That it has been used In this
country very often as a means of deceiving people and very seldom as a
farm crop.
2. That lt has failed to produce
even fair yiedds when tried In many
parts of the country, and has never
been known to produce extraordinary
3. That it is not a good milling
4. That the branched head is not
a sign of superior yielding power.

WITH this issue The Sun enters on Its twenty-seventh
year of existence. During all these years the paper
has been under the present managelment, editorship, amd
mechanical stall—the work of the three deportments is,
in fact, performed by one man. This is a record that wc
do not believe any other paper in the province: can equal.
While The Sun, at times, has not been a howling financial
success, We have always had a place to sleep and enough
coin to pay for three meals per day; and we have conducted the business in such a manner as to entirely
satisfy our ext'-ting standard of self-respect. That is
the lin.'. cf *v tilth that we prize most highly. We feel,
however, that the paper has not yet fully attained our
ideal of a rural newspaper. That ideal is to print all
the local news Worth printing, to eliminate pure gossip
and wild rumors, and to make thei paper reliable, instructive, educative, .tail entertaining, in fact, a paper that
can be read with profit by a person' who may have no
local interest in the conumunity. With added improvements to our mechanical department, we feel that The
Sun will soon reach this goal.

has recently been arojsed by the
gracious solicitude of their Majesties
King George and Queen Mary of
Enelana for the welfare and comfort
of the least-known and loneliest island
colony in the world.
Romance blows with the wind
from every solitary Island; and the
romance of Tristan da Cunha is its
grandeur of isolation, the struggle for
existence of the few inhabitants of
its rock-bound shores and the experiences of a sailor who left
aa a heritage to the island the
belief that somewhere amid the rocks
is to be found a wealth of pirate
treasure. Tbe island is distant from
ita nearest neighbor, St. Helena—
Isle of Napoleonic memories—, by
1600 miles and is far from the path
of ahips, rarely indeed receiving a
visit from the great and busy world
beyond the horizon; a world which,
marching along the highway of pri>
gress, has all but forgotten this outpost of civilization in the desert of the
South Atlantic Ocean.
In 1814, during the war with Great
Britain) an English garrison occupied
thia atrategic island. There they
found three Americans one of whom,
Jonathan Lambert, "of Salem, a
citizen and mariner thereof", is
reputed to have sailed the seas as a
buccaneer. As a pirate he ran untrue
to form somehow escaping the yard
arm and public hangings that have
been their traditional fate. The story
goes that he came to Tristan in order
to hoard, in a secret place, the booty
>.' many a rich prize, seized and
plundered  on the roaring Spanish
Thus the place is invested with the
magic spell of a Treasure Island, and,
to this day, the islanders believe that
witbin ita bounds is to be found a
rich hoard of doubloons, moidores,
pieces of eight or louis d'or. Whether
this be true or not. Lambert, when
found by the English, was engaged in
the peaceful occupation of preparing
the skins and oil of seals, with which
the shores abounded. These were
exchanged for provisions with any
passing ships; and the trade appears
to have been bo lucrative, that Lambert was encouraged to issue a proclamation, inviting all the world to
trade with the island. Of it Lambert
declared himself the sovereign lord,
"grounding" as he is claimed to have
said, "my right and claim on the
rational and sure ground of absolute
The continuous occupation of Tristan da Cunha began, however, in
1817 when, on the withdrawal of the
garrison, William Glass, of Kelso,
a corporal in the Royal Artillery, was,
at his own request left on the island
with hla wife and two soldiers who
had been induced to join them. The
real discoverer of the island was a
Portuguese navigator whose name
the island bears. This was in the year

Tbe people are self-governing and
self-supporting. The men are daring
sea-men and clever carpenters and
masons; but there is a touch of the
primitive about the picturesque
bullock-carts, and the cottages built
of huge blocks of stone. 	
Physically the island ia entirely of
volcanic formation. High cliffs circle
the lonely spot and are pierced with
ravines, the walls rising like ramparts
from the sea, to a height in many
places o! over 1000 feet high. They
are topped by a central cone that
stands out amid the surrounding
cliffs at a height of 7640 feet, snowcapped and symmetrical as tbe Peak
of Teneriffe. Here, in the largest
crater, is a fresh-water lake, wmch,
ft is said, ia never frozen. On the
northwest of the island is the sole
access to the sea — a narrow plateau
where ia the only settlement.
The social life of the community is
limited and the monotonous existence
of the inhabitants has resulted ln
some of tbe colony drifting off beyond
the horizon on some chance merchant-
mn. The island, however, will soon

French River Home of the Fighting " Muskie "
i over 600.
"Wuakies" are so plentiful at
IV* French River. Ontario, according to J. G. Strathdee, who runs the
French River Bungalow Camp at
this Ontario resort, that he and his
mother, while paddling down the
River, past the golf course, struck a
muscalunge at least four feet long
which- was sunning itself near the
surface of the water. The muskie,
whicli waa aa surprised as the canoists,
leaped several feet out of the water,
then vanished from view.
French River station is on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, 216 miles
north of Toronto, 60 miles north of
Parry Sound, and 46 miles south of
Sudbury. The Bungalow Camp is
attractively situated on an elevation
commanding a magnificent view oi
the main channel of the French River
and within 200 yards oi the station.
In addition to the Bungalow Camp,
an outlying sub-camp is situated at
Fine Rapids, at the head of Eighteen
Mile Island, inthe heart of the best
fishing waters of tbe upper French
It has as an adjunct Pine Rapids
Camp, which is 26 miles up the river.
These two camps accommodate
ninety people, and there are plenty
of fish—muscalunge, Great Northern
pike, pickerel, and small and large
mouth black bass. There are thirty
well b'uilt and comfortable bungalows
at tbe main camp, while Pine Rapids
has canvas houses built on wooden
floors. French River is 216 miles
North of Toronto.
Here is a tale told by Mr. Strathdee, about a "muskie" with a toothache. In August, this big iresh water
tiger needs a fish dentist. Last year
a visitor to French River hooked a
30-pounder which immediately dropped to the bottom of the river and
sulked. The knowing Indian guide
tapped the rod with his knife; the
vibrations went through tne pole,
down the' line to the mouth of the
''muskie", and irritated one ot Its
sore teeth. The muskie then leaned
clear of the water, and proceeded to
give tne fisherman a fierce fight lasting three-quarters of an hour!
The muscalunge at French River
run from 10 to 46 pounds, ana one
was caught in this well-known angling resort which weighea 66 lbs.

and return nothing
6. Don't stop gullies or grow cover
crops—let the topsoil wash away,
thip you will bave "bottom" land.
6. Don't plan your farm operations.
It's hard work thinking—trust to
7. Regard your woodland as you
would a coal mine; cut every tree,
sell the timber, and wepr the cleafed
land out cultivating it ln corn.
8. Hold fast to tbe idea that the
methods ot farming employed by
your grandfather alrel good enough
for you.
9. Be independent—don't join with
your neighbors ln any form of cooperation.
10. Mortgage your farm for every
dollar it will stand to buy things you
would havei cash to buy if you followed *\ good system of farming.

A.   JOHNSTON,   Deputy Minister of   Marine and Fisheries
What is considered the largest
grizzly shot in the Canadian Rockies
this season was taken by Miss A.
Van Vlcck, daughter of Ernest Van
Vleck, prominent New York architect who headed a bunting party
into the Selkirk district. The party
went in north uf Revelstoke.
An amount of grain greatly in
excess of the entire production of
western Canada in the year 1887,
4,454,000 bushels, were hauled to
elevators over Canadian Pacific lines
in one day in the west during the
middle of October. This constituted a record haul of grain for thit
railway company.
The second shipment of horse?
from Canada to Russia was a record shipment, according to Louie
Kon, Sovliet representative, there
being only one horse that died during the passage. The next shipment is expected to go forward in
November, and this will bring thf
total number up to 3,300.
G. N. Torgen, ex-M.P. for Sweden,
recently left tor the Peace River
Country in' order to locate suitable
farm land for the establishing of a
large colony of Swedish fanners,
who are said to be in a position to
undertake farming on an extensive
scale. He has already canvassed
Mexico and the Southwestern States,
which he finds unruitable.
The new Canadian Pacific Railway
elevator at Midland  has begun  to I
receive grain, and  shortly  all  the ;
construction work will be complete j
and all departments of the plant in
operation.   The opening of this ele- !
vator marks the extension of Canadian  Pacific  enterprise  to another
port on the Great Lakes and a new
factor in retaining a greater proportion of the Canadian export grain
trade for Canadian ports. j
The largest party of major league j
baseball   stars   to   hunt   moose   in j
New Brunswick entered the woods !
for   a   two-weekB   stay   after   the
World Series.     Thc party entered
at Clarendon on the Canadian Pacific main line ahd included Benny
Bengough, Mark Koenig, Eddie Collins,  Joe  Bush,  Sam   Jones,  Fred
Hofman.   A number of newspaper
writers   and   cameramen   were  included in the party.
The two new Canadian Pacifie passenger ships, "Duchess of Atholl"
and "Duchess of Bedford," now being built for the St. Lawrence route
(Liverpool to Montreal), will be
two of the finest vessels afloat, according to plans and specifications.
Their gross tonnage will register
20,000. They will be twin screw
with geared turbine engines. They
will have a length of 596 feet, a
breadth of 75 feet and a speed of
17Vs knots. Both ships will have
accommodation for 572 cabin, 480
tourist third class and 508 third
class passengers.
The initial consignment this year
ef Canadian apples for Great Britain, has gone forward on the Canadian Pacific liner "Montrose" from
Montreal. They a-re consigned by
the Fruit Branch of the Dominion
Department of Agriculture from the
Province of Ontario and consisf of
forty standard boxes containing
about 4,000 apples to be put on exhibition at the Imperial Fruit Show
scheduled to be held at Manchester
this month. Varieties include
Golden Russet, Mcintosh,** Spies,]
Greenings, Stark, Talman Sweet,
Wolf River, Cran Pippin and Bax-|
ter. On the same vessel are 25
cast's of vegetables also for exhibition in England.
