P. Partridge, an Assiniboia farmer, who has written a letter to Mr.  HeCnrary, the immigration commissioner, setting forth how he came tc  that country with only one or two  white chips and Is now worth ever eo  many stacks of blues, is a birl. Be  sides J. P. himself, there is quite a  covey of Partridges, 10 boys and five  girl*. No wonder, therefore, he is  worth today between $75,000 and  $100,060.   The girls are worth that.  This Partridge letter coming from  a  prominent and   successful    farmer  . should be worked for all it us worth  by the immigration department, and  most likely will.   In order to success-  - fully emulate the success of Mr. Partridge lt will bo expedient to have at  least 10 husky eons, 'to say nothing of  Sve lovely daughters, 'whose swains  will be agreeable "to come around to  the threshing and husking bees, help  In the haylnc and do the chores of a  Sunday. Mr. Partridge lays particular stress on the Virtue and necessity of sobriety, tenacity and perseverance, from which it iB safe to infer  that the only jags permissible em his  farm are jags of hay. ,  The prosperity of Mr. Partridge only  goes to show the splendid possibilities  of the North West. Had he come to  Alberta in the first place he would undoubtedly have been a millionaire today. The lesson inculcated by this  gentleman's experience is that young  men should marry and raise sons and  daughters in as large quantities as  possible, thus dispensing with hired  help, the bane of every struggling  farmer. Honest hearts and willing  tends, with plenty of seed grain, and  what will not the earth of fair Alberta  produce! Ur. John McDougall's  paen of praise in pe Rterday'- issue of  The Herald la in no way overdrawn.  Incidents That Aptly Illustrate the Wonderful Sagacity of the Bird.  Many stories aro told of tho cleverness  of thoraven, a bird that really seems to  have reasoning powers. Ono of theso  stories tells how a raven by a skillful  stratagem got a young horo for its dinner.  It had pounced upon tho little animal,'but  the mothor hare drovo it away.  cThen the raven slowly retreated, encouraging the mother to follow him, and even  pretending that hu wns afraid of her. In  this fashion he led her to a considerable  distance from her young ono and then  suddenly, bofore tho hare had time to  realize tho meaning of the trlck|"ho rose  ln tho air, flew swiftly back, caught tlio  young hare lu his beak nnd boro it away.  A similar plan was adopted by sonic  ravens that wished to steal food from a  dog. They teased him till ho grew so angry that he chased them from the spot,  but tho artful birds turned sharply round,  ���������aslly roached the dish beforo him and  carried off the choicer bits in triumph!  As to the ravon's power of speech, the  following story, which Is given on tho authority of Captain Brown, who vouches  for its truth, will show how aptly it can  talk. A gentleman whilo traveling through  a wood ln tho south of Bnglnncl wns startled by honring a shout of "Fafrplay, gon-  tleuien; fair play!" uttered in loud tones.  Tho cry being presently repeated, tho traveler thought lt must proceed from soma  one ln distress nnd ntonce began to search  for him. Ho soon discovered two ravens  fiercely attacking a third. Ho wns so  struck with tho appeal of the oppressed  bird that he promptly rescued him.  It turned out  that  the victim was a  tame raven  belonging  to a houso In tlio !  neighborhood, and the cry that it had used j  so  opportunely was ono of  many that it {  had been taught to utter.���������Philadelphia  Times.

"It is somotlmcs argued that the oollego  unfits a woman for domostio Ufa," writes  Edward Bok ln Tho Ladles' Homo Journal. "That Is true, I think, only so far  as a girl can or cannot adapt horself from  ono condition to auothor.. Tho dlfforonco  between tho college and the homo is simply tho difference, botween all training and  real work ln tho world. If a oolliigo courso  is rightly understood and tnkon advantage of, lt will propara rather than unlit a  girl fur the wlsost government of n houso.

Symbol of the Sunflower.  Speaking of yellow, tho sunflower, in  flower language, Is symbolical of falso  riches, for tho following reasons: The  Spaniards, when they Invaded Peru, beheld gold on every hand, and when they  aaw lho country covered with golden colored flowers they imagined they, too, must  be puro gold���������not tho only caso whero appearances hnvo been deceitful. But by n  pervcrso contradiction of this story tho  Spaniards themselves adopt thc flower as  a symbol of faith, and ono of their poets  says, "Real faith Is like the sun's fair  flowers, which, midst tho clouds thnt  shroud lt and tho winds that wavo lt to  and fro, and all tho chango of air nnd  earth and sky doth rear its head nnd look-  eth up, still steadfast, to its God."

PLEASED WITH ALBERTA  An   Excellent   Report   from   W_sci.:in  and Minnesota Delegates  From The Calgary Herald  The opinions of five delegates from  Minnesota anel Wisconsin published by  the Edmonton Bulletin over their  names are very complimentary to  Northern Albsrta.   The repoit says:  "We must say in all sincerity, that  driving all over the country for six  days we have not found one settler  who was not more than pleased with  the country and its" productions, and  would not, return, to the land he left.  We have seen people here from all  parts of the States and all doing well.  We met a Dakota farmer by the name  of McLean, who Informed' us. that he  has raised more grain here in three  years than he did in 13 where . he  came from, on half as much ground.  We have seen a number ot- others,  both men and .women, and all speak  in the same strain about Alberta.  They all look happy and contented;  even the children are happy. In our  drive over the country, in passing the  countless schoolhouses.we could only  see,happiness In the faces of the little  ones. We noticed them all well  dressed, equal if not better than the  same class of children in the "State of  Minnesota.  "The wheat that is raised here is  just beautiful, the kernel full and  plump and may well be termed golden  grain, yielding from 30 to 55 bushels  to the acre. This statement is not  .from one farmer but from hundreds  who teir the sa~me~tale7���������Oats���������yield "  from .70 to 100 bushels to the acre.bar-  ley from 40 to 60 and potatoes from  300 to 400 bushels to the acre.  "We have taken particular notice  of the climate in regard to the difference between this country and our  own. When we left Ada, Minnesota,  we wero in the midst of a real Dakota blizzard, but with the lightning  speed of the C. P. R., we soon left  all that behind. When we arrived at  Edmonton we found the people on the  streets, still wearing summer clothing, no mittens on their hands and  far less use for them. Tho country  is simply more than we ever dreamed  of. The printed matter sent out by  tho government does not half tell of  the grand country in Alberta, open  for millions of people to make beautiful homes for themselves. Too much  cannot be said in praise. It is all and  more than the greatest eulogist ever  thought of giving to the public.  "We saw-the cattle and horses in  herds, grazing on the prairie like in  summer time, all sleek and fat. We  were Informed by several farmers that  most of the stock run out all winter.  We looked into this matter more particularly to satisfy a number of our  farmers. We also find the market extra good here for beef and pork. Hogs  fetch 4%c live weight A three year  old steer will sell for from $-0 to $45  right from the prairie. Coal and wood  are here in abundance. Coal is sold  in the town of Edmonton for ?2 per  ton, and farmers can secure coal at  tho mines themselves for 75c per load.  "We find that farmers can purchase  their farming Implements as cheaply  here as" in the States, taking freight  charges and duty into consideration,  on new machinery.  "We have found the people of Alberta kind and hospitable, ever ready  to give information^ and accommodation to strangers in a strange- land.  "Before closing we say to you one  and all, come to Alberta, where there  are homes for millions and a promiso  for something to lay by tor old ac.e.  We are well satisfied with this country and as evidence have each bought  - a half section of C. P. R. land in  township 55, rango 21, west ot the 4lh  initial meridian, and will return next  spring to reside. ii  "Hoping this may be of some benefit  " to the overburdened fanners   of   the  United States." ?

CALGARY  <   ���������  BOY. IN TROUBLE  Jockey Ben Gouin Ruled Off San tran-  c;eco Rece Track for Alleged Queer  Riding  The celebrated mare May W. nnd  the well known young Calgarian Benson Gouin are the subjects of considerable guessing and considerable investigation on the part of the race track  authorities in San Francisco. It appears that May W. had a fit of the  slows on a certain occasion when no  mjDney was up on her, being beaten  badly by a lot of old skates; and a  few elays later, when entered in a race  with very fast company romped home  an easy winner under a wrap, doing  seven_ furlongs In the fast time of  ���������1:27-r-"-demonstrating���������beyond���������-the-  shadow of a doubt that the marc had  not been ridden to win or even get  inside the money in her previous  start. In the latter race Bullman was  substituted as jockey for Gouin, as  Dune. Cameron, the owner, claimed  he was not satisfied that Gouin had  ridden to win, and made the substitution to verify his suspicions. It is  said that Cameron lost every cent he  had In ready money on Monday, as the  mare was never better in her life,  and he had friends bet thousands of  dollars in thc poolrooms at Chicago  and Butte..  - The supposition is that if Gouin pulled May W. in the first race, he did  so for a money consideration to benefit a certain bookmaker who is known  to have, laid the highest price against  May W. in the first race, and who*bet  heavily on her in the last.  Gouin has his side of the story,  which is not very flattering to Cameron, who. he claims made overtures  to him to i ide and pull a horse,Chuck,  for liini in Calgary some years ago.  He also claims thac Cameron could  not have lost anything on Monday's  race, for the excellent reason that he  had nothing to lose. A thorough investigation is under.way, and a general washing of dirty linen in a public  way may be looked for..  It is dreadful to think that a Calgary man would do anything crooked  on a race track, and we must decline to believe'the malignant articles  in the San Francisco press until the  result of the investigation is made  known.
