Mr. Davis  ���������benefitted on his carload   of   apples,  lhe farmer pays the 17 cents per hundred on everything he huys.     This is  but one specimen of how the speciour  .r.romises    of    the government   have  "been disregarded.   AGRICULTURAL   EDUCATION.  " Agricultural methods of today and  * Cuose of 20 years ago present somewhat the same comparison as the old  fashioned stage coach and the n������lm  limited express, says the Nor-We_t  Parmer. The agriculturist is rapidl>  '."lentine from the laboring rank  to  ���������' --ait-of the stilled mechanic and keen  business man. If modern invention  has remodelled our great manufacturing industries, it' has simply revolutionized agriculture. The invention  and general adoption of the thresher,  leader, self binder, mower, and  aiacke., not to mention the hundrc n  and one more or less complicated contrivances for the cutivation ami harvesting of roots, the results attained  sind time honored customs exploded  throueh the efforts of an army of  skilled chemists the world over, wno  ' are devoting their lives to the advancement of agriculture, the valuable  conclusion reached by the practical ex-  i-.erimentalists, carrying on investigations covering tho whole range of intricate agricultural problems, testinr  -->ud breeding of varieties for every  conceivable climatic and soil' condition under the sun, all these factors  have wroueht such changes m farm  economy and operation that if thc  '.ast generation visited the former field-  of action it would stand aghast at  the unprecedented advancement and  srveeoine changes adopted on the  farm" within,   comparatively speaking.  .. ..recent vears  thc'federal government, and while :t  similar stato of affairs exists in the  United States, there is this notable  difference, that south of the line land  grant colleges maintaining courses oL'  instruction in agriculture, have been  established in every stato, under the  acts of congress of tho 2nd July, 18G2,  the 30th of August 1S0O, and the Hatch  act of tho 2nd of March, 1897. Somo  025 professors are actively engaged  in imparting instruction at these colleges. The scientific staffs are also  utilized in connection with farmers' institute work, or as it has been appropriately called, tho great "university  extension" movement. Twenty-nine  thousand persons received instruction  nt agricultural colleges in the United  States during the year 1S07, and the  publications of these institutions, aggregating some 16,000 pages, were  mailed to over half a million people,  agricutural education!  This is something liko a scheme of  pgricultural education!  Agricultural education in. the Territories, as might be expected, is in a  still moro undeveloped state. The  federal government, must, however,  shoulder tho solo responsibility here.  A mere pittance is doled out to th-~  Government of the Territories with  ���������which to defray thc cost of administering that vast country, which is  rapidly heing filled up, largely with  aliens of thc most unprogressivo type.  Some good work has been done by the  r.owly established department of ag  riculttire there in organizing institute  meetings and initiating agriculture!  expeiments, but only tho ridiculously  r.r-'nll sum is available for agricu!-*  tr.ral educational objects, which have  in the past, of necessity boon confined  to purely rudimentary work.  The remedy Is contained in a nutshell. The federal government should  either bund ovor    thc    public    lands  within Manitoba and lho Territories,  or part of them,  to bo administered  locally, whicli would enable us to d .-  frav the cost ot the agricultural education ot the people, and  consequent  development of    tho   country, out or  the. revenue from the public domain,  to which it is properly chargeable, or.  let tho Dominion government provide  sufficient for such    services,  on    the  same basis as has been adopted to the  south of the line.     In the   meantime,  the people here, who are spending the  best years of their life in colonizing  this country and enduring more or less  of the hardships    -incidental     to all  pioneering, object strongly    to    havo  this "North West Estate" administered for the especial benefit of the Enst-  rn Provincs, while the latter, as well  as: tho province of British Columbia  arc enjoying the   revenues from their  l.-~nds, and  are consequently able    to  develop  locally  every branch  of  agriculture to the very utmost, establish  efficient- agricultural colleges, in fact,  extend iho strong guiding hand only  r.cssossed   by   government,   seconded  by tho necessary expenditure, to raise  agriculture to that lofty plane whero  similar  encouragement has placed  it  in other   provinces, and   incidentals  enter into unoniial   competition   wilh  iho farmers of Manitoba, and the Territories, who do not enioy these "durational facilities and government assistance.  found no means of checking promiscuous treating. A wave of moral  sentiment has caused the principal  scial clubs of Cincinnatti to renuve  the bars from the club-houses. This  will have to be done in other cities  i������ drunkenness cannot be suppressed  within the clubs. If all membeis  would take a non treating pledge  and wear a button to show their  convictions, men under the influence  of liquor would seldom be seen within their precincts and a sentiment  would speedily _ be created which  would, lead to the expulsion of ha  bitual  drunkards.  Treating, instead of being an evidence of sociability, is simply . an  evidence of a lack of moral courage  to drink when and what you desire.  COMPANY.

The reply must irahesiiit-  inelv be giveu in the negative. We  are taking the utmost pains to educate  our children to become good citizens  bu*. it is equally important in the  . in al districts, to educate them to h������-  <-)me good farmers, and still more so,  to educate a large nronrtion of the  present generation of farmers up to  ������������������'���������scarding ih<=ir Rip Van Winkle methods, as well as to place valuable  i'tcts and latest information within  the reach of every agriculturist in  die country, progressive or non-prr.-  --ressive. It is gratifying to find that  ihe governments of both the province  it Manitoba and the North West Territories are alive to the importance of  this feature of their work. Sufficient  is not beine done, however. The expenditure of the Ontario government  upon strictly agricultural educationa.  ch'Tts as~������n*esaip.- more than JI>:?-fJ"''  Manltboa expends in all some *1G,000.  whii" the North West Territories a?  tit the bor-crn of the list, with a tot .1  appropriation of S2.500. partly for in-  -.;tute work and partly for agricul-  ���������ural experiments. It cannoj. be s"--  r������"=~.=fully arcued that the need fcr work  . f that nature is greater in Ontario  ���������ban it is in the west Every person  in possession of average common  r^n^c must admit that exactly the reverse Is the case. The rural population'of the west embraces neopl--"  from everv country in Europe, totally  imorant as to our conditions of soil,  climate and cultivation. To illustrate  i*_e point, we have only to refer to the  recent influx of Doukhobors and Galicians, and the proposed largo immi-  ������������������cition from'Finland next year. The  i 'cr'-West Farmer does not wish to  '-r-ier into any controversy as to the  merits or demerits of these people as  rettlers; the fact remains that they  -re here, and that it behoove our  respective governments to see that  missionary work along agricultural  5'nes is not neglected. A great num-  .j-r of our settlers come direct from  Great Britain or our Eastern Provin-  .--"e, and they also have much to learn  _s well as to unlearn. Apart from  tnat, the whole farming population,  irrespective of creed or nationality.  ,s vltallv Interested in keeping abrea=*l  of the" latest developments in tho  science and practice of agriculture.  Our public lands are   controlled by  THE EVILS OF  TREATING.  How to diminish the evils of intemperance is a problem which has puzzled the best minds of all ages, and  in none has it been more prominent  than in tho present. The formation  of a non-treating society would probably do more lo ameliorate thc e.ils  of excessive drinking than any of the  existing  temperance   societies.  In Europe wine and beer drinking  is' almost universal, but, notwithstanding, u man under tho influence  of alcohol is seldom or ever seen.  This is somewhat due lo t.he light  character of the wines and beers, but  more largely to the fact that the inhabitants .drink in modera'tion. An  American can readily got intoxicated  upon French wine or German beer.  A European seldom drinks bet-.vec'i  meals. The German consumes his  malt at his meals or in tho evening  in some beer garden. Surrounded by  his family, the members of wliich indulge with him, ho sips a single  schooner of light beer while he listens to tho orchestra. Tho Latin  races prefer light wines, which they  take with all meals. But they seldom  drink at other times except in the  evenings. To rush up to a l~ar and  pour down whiskey or brandy upon  an empty stomach would be considered the act of an idiot.  To offer to pay- for a friend's drink  in Europe would be taken -as au insult. He would probably tell you  that he could afford to pay for his  own liquor. An Englishman may  _ay,_ J'Come, let us .go in and get  a drinki" "but-lie would never ofTer  to settle your seoie. A Canadian or  American might-consider this meanness, but a sober second thought  should convince-him that there is no  more reason for one man paying for  another's alcoholic stimulant than  there is in paying for his beeistt-ik in  a butcher's shop which they happen  to visit together.  The ciuse of the Westerner is his  iree use of money and so-called generosity. It* he walks into a sa.'ioi.  to take a cocktail before -jioing home  to dinner and finds half a dozen acquaintances standing at the bar, ho  has not the courage to "ordor h*is  beverage������and drink "'alone. Indeed,  were he to do so his siin-^iness would  be commented upon after his departure and he knows it. So he says,  "i3oys, what will you have?", and  seven drinks are token. Then the  others Insist that hu shall drink  ' with them. Tl.e result Is, that  he has taken seven "drinks, v;hcn he  only wanted ono. nnd lie goes home  late to dinner with a flifs'nod face,  thick speech an-! unsteady steps lo  sadden his wife's heart. Again, a  dozen friends meet at the club after  dinner. Instead of each one ordering some long drink which he can  sip at leisure during a couple of hours  while he Joins in the conversation  with clear faculties, someone orders  the drinks and a dozen cocktails are  taken. Then no man can depart,  under the prevalent false code of  honor, until he also has .paid for a  round of drinks. The result is  nasty stories and rihhald conversation, which would have shamed him  in sober moments, and twelve men  go to their homes at. midnight or  later to disgust their wives and relatives, and get up the next morning  with headaches and unfitted for business. If there arc any young men  in the party they have reached such  a reckless condition that it is easy  for some hoary-hcaded old sinner to  lead them to a. gambling hell or  worse place, v/here they noi. only  lose their money, but their self ns-  peet. Thereafter lhey gravitate down  ward very rapidly.  Scores of young men arc: ruined annually in thr- KOci.il clubs of our  large cities, and most of the evil results from the treating habit.

Thinks   England  Will   Need  a  Much  Larger Force to Subdue the Boers  "A prominent German general and  staff officer in a friendly criticism  has been telling the Briiish authorities in the Times "how grave, is the  necessity uf sending large reinfoi cements to South Alrica. He ainrnih  from positive knowledge that the  Boers are able to put UO.OOO men lithe field. Against this force the English have 80,000 men. From this, T:e  points out, musl bo deducted tnose  needed to keep open the requisite  base lines, as well as the forces i.e-  cessary for/checking risings in Cape  Colony and for garrison duly in llie  chief centres. He adds: "1 hold tho  opinion which is freely Jharcd by  brother staff officers, that not less  than 40,000 or 45,000 men will be i-b-  sSorbed by such necessities, leaving  36,000 or 40,000 for active military  operations. It must be further taken  into account that a majority of th-  men aro unused to tlie climate, und  ,an unusual ,percentage of V3ickt>c_s  must bo expcclad. The local geogr.-  phy is a sealed book to most of lh;  British, and an unusual number of  reserve men must be pressed into  use before the British are in a condition for ,such a campaign. 1 do-  not consider thai oar German view-  is unjustified, viz., how can England  expect to crush ,a force of at least  50,000 Boers with an army ot 40,000  available for offence when we consider that theso Boers are acclimatized and know every yatd of the  country und its capacities for trips  ror the bravest European troops.  They shoot admirably and they manoeuvre with an astoHishJng strasellcal  ability. Thoy 'have already reveal."!1,  in trilling operations that they can  ignore thc questions of tood und encampment to a degree out of the  question wlti- Briiish troops, when  they are figh :...g for their,rotten oligarchy with the courage of despai ',  wliich has been heightened hy success of certain nature up to the present. They have lound time, during their advance south lo put th.ii*  route in )UU admirable state of ''.-  fence. Finally , Pretoria, has Deen  fortified in such an able manner tli.it  an almost insignificant defensive  force will be able to hold the pla-e  while tho main army can be devoted  to other duty. Tailing all the foregoing into account, the conclusion l.as  to be 'arrived at that if. Englanc  means to come out victorious she  will have to be represented in South  Africa by au immensely increaseu  numerical force, at any rate ' y one  quito beyond the proportions of anything as yet conceived by the public."  There is no official announcement  to this effect, but there.is some reason to believe that such is now the  government's opinion. Two thirds (t  the transports which cariied the first  corps/to South Africa will be back  in-English ports before the fresh,,  troops are' ready to sail, and these,  with the important additions to the  fleet, like* the,Majestic. will probably  -.start off for South Africa within '.wo  er three weeks. *  MANITOBA ELECTIONS  Nomination Day Tomorrow���������Conserves.

SAMOAN QUESTION.  Washington, Nov. 28.���������-Tho U. S  doeline to accept the agreement as  to the disposition, 'oj tho Samoan  questiou reached by Great' Britain  and Germany. It was possibly the  leaking out ot somo information to  this effect that gave rise to tlie report in circulation in European capitals recently of the development of a  serious hitch in the- negotiations. As  "a matter of fact thero was no serious  hitch and tho reasons which Inliu-  -enced the state department in rejecting tlie British-German arrangements  which were submitted tor approval,  related to minor matters and touched  rather upon form than on substance  of the arrangement. Having rejected  a tentative treaty submitted by the  othor two powers the U. S. gover.i-  men has in turn and at tho instance  of tlie other parties, prepared and  submitted a draft of a treaty which  it is hoped will he acceptable to all  the powers. This is now before tho  foreign ofllces in London and Berlin  for consideration and it is confidently  believed here Jt will receive- an  unanimous approval, as it does not  differ in principle from the original  project.  GENERAL KITCHENER  Gains Another- Victory in Egypt���������The  Dervishes Utterly Routed.  . Cairo, Nov. 27.���������-Lord Cromer, tho  British minister here, has received  lho following despatch from General  Kitchener: "Wingato's forces came  up with the Khalifa's force seven  miles south east of Godid. Alter a  sharp fight we took his position. The  Khalifa, who was surrounded by a  body guard of Emirs, was killed and  all tho principal Emirs were killed  or captured, except Osman Digna,  who escaped. The Dervishes were utterly defeated, their whole camp was  taken and thousands surrendered. A  large number of women, children and  -eattle also fell into the hands ot the  *Anglo-Egyptian forced."  The Khalifa referred to as being  killed is Abdullah El Taishi, the great  chieftain of the Soudan who" has given  tho British so much trouble. It maybe said that the" power of the Dervishes is* probably, crushed. Abdullah  was one of the Khalifas who .in 1888  helped the famous Mahdi to overthrow the government of Egypt in  eastern Soudan and establish despotism of the Mahdi in its placet At  the battle of Omdurman on September  ���������2, 1898.

It  -eeuis to follow that continental conscripts with their two or three years  training woulil be st.ill more helpless  in the face of a determined charge and  that in fact lliu days of the bayonet  are by no means ended by those new  lung distance rifles. The elfeet of the  impression produced on the' Boers by  lbe fact that their long distance marksmanship cannot slop Tommy Atkins  from getting in among them must  soon begin to tell. The Boer is helpless al " close quarters. He carries  no bayonet und does,not know how to  use one. if lie did. So that the unfailing success of the British infantry to  get no.ir enough Ls use tlieir favorite  cold steel, in spile of everything the  Boers cun do at long range to prevent  liini, must soon begin t.o create a panic,  which i-.iimot fail io have a profound  effect on the future of the war.
