second time tried the experiment of
leaving potatoes in the ground over

fifty acres that he did not dig, and

found to be in excellent condition.
Last fall he had about 80 acres which
he was unable to .get out of the
ground before winter set in. On
making an investigation, a few' days
ago, it was found that the potatoes
were in splendid condition. Ab the
market pripe is high for them this
spring, Mr. Covert will yet make a
'good, profit out of his crop.

a whirlwind of public indignation,

'IIJESDAY, MARCH 15, 1904
There are no people in the world
t< day who n ore fully appreciate their
own couhtry than do thc Canadians.
This is probably due to the fact that
no other country hns, proporth n
ately, made more real progress i i
development within a few years
. than Canada. The opening up of
her Northwest by as sturdy and desirable a clasB of people as ever entered upon and took possession of
the lands of nny new country has
had a tremendous effect in confirm
ing Canadians in the impression that
Jhey possess a country which for productiveness in agricultural, mineral
and timber wealth is second to none.
The success of the settler who has
taken uji land confirms him in thc
belief that the "lines have fallen to
him in pleasant places," and that he
come to share in "a giolly heritage."
Jitoino from recent guesses from
the far enst, the Japanese and Russian troops must be advancing in
opposite directions, or they would
come together long ere thiB. However, we can console ourselves with
the knowledge that a big land battle is expected within twenty-four
hours—from the 1st of March.
Tiik last intelligence received from
Ti'E Sun's wnr correspondent stated
thnt he was playing a lively game of
ping-pong with the Russian Boldiers
Mil the city of Pingyung, and that he
WiStop deeply absorbed in the skirmish to write dispatches.
"To be, or not to he, that is the
question" which agitates thc city nt
the present time regarding the gambling question. One side says "to
be"—-thc other "not to be." In the
meantime it :s "being."
It is reported that Sir Charles
Hibhcrt Tupper will shortly succeed Hon. Richn.id McBride as
premier of British Columbia.
Now is the time to pawn your fnr-
lined overcoat and buy n pair of
rubber boots.
•^MINING NEWS

In his "Outre Mer," Paul Bourget declared that "life can never get entirely
dull to ihe American, because whenever
he cannot strike any other way to put
in his time, he can always get away
with a few years trying to find out who
his grandfather was." To which Mark
Twain replied: "I j-t.ck'on the Frenchman's got his little stand-by for a dull

can't find out who his father was."

"He expressly mentions daisies pied."

It is related that once, when "Punch"
printed a cartoon representing an Imaginary conversation between James McNeil
Whistler and Oscar W\A% Wilde wired
Whistler: "Ridiculous; when you and 1
are together we never talk about anything except ourselves." "You forget,?
replied Whistler in a return telegram,
"when you and I are together we never
talk About anything except mc."
Thc following story is credited to a
New Orleans lawyer, who was asked to
address the boys of a business school. He
commenced:— "My young friends, as I
* --prodched the entrance to this room jr
noticed on the panel of the door a word
eminently appropriate to nn institution
of this kind. It expresses the one thin-j
most useful to the average man when h"
steps into the arena nf life.   It was "
"Pull," shouted the boys, in a roar oi
laughter, and the lawyer felt that he
had taken his text frum the wrong side
of the door.

answered the man who would a hubby
be, "you ndmit to having celebrated
twenty-two birthday anniversaries, and

"True," said Ihejfrir one; "but think of
the difference twenty years hence; you
will be fifty-two nnd I will be twentv-

never a word, but let it go at that.-*

THE TORONTO
DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods nnd prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News' for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of $1.00 a.
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future* success of The
News could lend the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will ■ secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon tho intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at &2.2.r> a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
thc home and district news, and
thc big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events ail over the world.

News, or if you would like to see

Josephine found me stretched fall
tei'gtll in a hummock \n tile garden.
"Why aren't you at work"" she asked;
■wit fcelip" «eruy, I hope!"
".\'p.ver better, snid I. "Hut I've bee.,
n: ' ha. n:y.df coo pneajf."
"M'e couldn't possibly help going to
tile .loni'sea hut nig..., d'\ir."
"Tnsli," aaid I. "1 mean there is too
iiiiieh of me."
"I don't quite underst-nd." she said;
"out there certainly will be if you spend
your mornings lolling in that hammock."
The distortive wantonness of this re-
mark left me cold.
"I have made up my mind," I continued, quite seriously, "to do no more
work for a considerable time."
'But, my dear boy, just think "
"I am going to make myself scarce," 1
insisted.
"Geoffreyl" she exclaimed, "I knew
you weren't well!"
I released myself.
"Josephine," 1 aaid solemnly, "those
estimable persons who collect my pictures' will think nothing of them if they
become too common."
, "How do you know there are such per-
sona!" she queried.
"I must decline to answer that question," I replied; "but if there are none
it ia because my work is not yet aula-
ciently rare and precious. 1 propose to
work no more—say for six or seven
years.. By that time my reputation will
be made, and there will be the fiercest
competition for the smallest canvas 1
condescend to sign."
She kissed me.
"I came out for the houoekeeping
money," she remarked simply.
I went into the house to fetch the required sum, and, by some means I cannot explain, got to "work ignin upun the
latest potboiler.—"Punch."

Of Miss "Bee" Drew, John Drew's
daughter, it is aaid that one day in her
childhood she asked her father bow often a certain paper, "The Daily -"—,"
appeared. "The paper is called the 'Daily.'
isn't it?" Mr. Drew asked. "Yes." said
the young girl. "Then mustn't it of necessity appear every day?" "1 don't
quite see that," said' Miss Drew. "It is
plain enough. Why don't you see it?"
her  father asked,    "because,"  she an-
swered, "if 'The Daily  ' must appear
every day, then 'The Century' must appear every century."
WHY CO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair curs,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion care,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing thc continent can bo found
than ifi provided by these excursions.
