It is a startling sight.  A few years ago, at about four o'clock in the  morning a gijyit meteor whirred through the twilight air just east of Detroit at a speed of about  thirty miles a second, and lit somewhere in the  waters of Lake Huron. People as far west as  Lansing were reported as having witnessed, the  strange sight. t  The airy visitor left in the sky a trail of white  smoke which did not disappear for several minutes. The white light, the meteor, produced when  passing was much the same as the illumination of  a powerful search light. We shall never forget  ,the scene, but are freshly reminded of.it by reports of two recent similar occurrences.  The first was at Neenah, Wis., February 28,  when a red-hot meteor fell on the house of Stephen Zemlock, early in the morning, knocking a  hole through the roof.   The members of the family*  were in bed and narrowly escaped being hit.  The" second was at sea, February 26, when the  steamship Bostonian, arriving from Manchester,  England, was in danger of destruction from a  meteor bursting only1 a few yards away from the  ship's bow.  Capt. Parry said that at five a. m. he saw the  meteor falling from the skies to the southwest. As  it ncared the water a loud hissing sound was distinctly heard, and it struck the water with a report like heavy cannonading. When it went into  the sea the commotion that it caused dashed the  water over the decks of the steamer. It was  visible for fully seven seconds, and from its appearance the officers judged that it must have  weighed several tons.  One of the men on board said it was an awe-  inspiring spectacle. It first appeared like a mass  of molten gold, and as it approached the water  it emitted a shower of sparks and was like a  marvelous pyrotechnic display.  These occurrences are unusual, but they are  real. They prove that somewhere in space material bodies are either forming or disintegrating  and that masses of solid matter, or what is at first  vapor, are thrown off to'find lodgment in ��������� the  atmosphere and substance of bodies which attract  them most.  Of the. princes, of this world none are mor^v priii^- than the "horny handed" man of toil,  ^liis honor comeH nor bybrHn������������������6ir^Wce^e^"������Hnatotmht!i������^^bUt;'lfy virtue of his valuable addi* &  tions 'to the comfort, convenience and benefit of the human race.   He has gone out from his fire* ''  side and home into the field and forest, the workshop and the mine, out into the mountains and the  sea with invincible courage and unconquerable will to transform the raw, unassimilated material !  furnished by N������ture into finished products, serviceable to man.   Intellectual ability and creative !'  perienced and to money-makers ia'lacking in wisdom ftigl must ultimately result in the utter loss  or degeneracy of such occasion*. Victoria Day, also eajfed Empire Day,'is worthy a better fate  and should be preserved. "' -!| *   n   4   A-  /I i  -a--       :���������������������������.��������� .     ' '/I  Q. A.O.

How  apt is Bishop Robert Mclntyre's recent poem on  ���������"THE WORKINGMAN.  o  Tliev  Uv  MAMMA'S KISSES  A kiss when I awake in the morning,  A kiss when I go to bed,  A kiss when I bum my finger,  A kiss when I bump my head.  A kiss when my bath is over,  A kiss when my hath begins:  My mamma is full of kisses,  As full as a nurse is of pins.

At the break of day and set of sun we heat  their heavy tread.  (iod's old brigade, al) undismayed, they battle  for daily bread;  And' they laugh to-know that, long ago, the  Lord of life and death  Fared forth at dawn, and home at dusk, with  them iu Nazareth.  Foreheads white for lack of light, or brows all  brown with grime,  Their garments blaek with- soot and sbiek, or  gray with the mason's lime,  ring  the  trowel,  push  the  plane,  they  travel the stormy deep,  *r They click the type and clang the press when  loved ones are asleep;  ll'Thro' the city street and the country lane their  lusty voices ring;  the roaring forge in the mountain gorge,  this cheery song they sing:  "O. we march away in the early morn,  As we did since the world began.  Don't muzzle the ox that treadeth the  corn;  Leave a share for the?workingman."  Some are workmen coarse and strong, and  some are craftsmen fine;  They set the plow, they steer the raft, they  sweat in sunless mine;  They lift "the sledge and drive the wedge, they  hide with cunning art  The powder where the spark can tear the mountain's stubborn heart;  They reap the fields of ripened grain and fill  the lands with bread;  They make the ore give up its gold beneath the  stamp-mill's tread; '  They spread the snowy sail aloft, they sweep-  the dripping seine:  They waft the wife a fond farewell, and ne'er  come home again.  But they march away in the early morn,  As they did since the world began.  Don't muzzle the ox that treadeth the  corn: .  Leave a share for the workingman.  They make the fiery furnace flow in streams of  spouting steel;  They bend the planks and braee the ribs along  the oaken keel;  They fold the Hock, they feed the herd, they in  the forest hew,  And  with  the  whetstone  on   the  scythe  beat  labor's sweet tattoo;  They climb the coping, swing the crane, and  set the capstone high;  They stretch the heavy bridge  that  hangs a  roadway in the sky;  They speed the shuttle, spin  the thread, and  weave the silken weft;  Or, crushed to death amid the wreck, they leave.  the home bereft.  Biit they march away in the early morn.  As they did since the world began.  Don't muzzle the ox that treadeth the:  corn;  Leave a share for tbe workingman.  In ancient days they were but serfs, and by the  storied Nile���������       4  Unhappy hordes!���������they drew the cords around  the heathen pile:  Where Karnak. Tyre and Carthage stood, where J  rolls Euphrates' wave, *  *  f.  v  Grim gods looked down, with stony frown, upon  the hapless slave.  That day is* past, thank heaven ! Xo more does  Man the Toiler bow  His mighty head with fear and dread; for litis master now.  His hand is strong, his patience long, his wholesome blood is calm.  Within his soul sits peace enthroned, and on his  lips this psalm:  "0, we march away in the early morn,  As we did since the world began.

NEITHER SHALL THEY DIVIDE INTO TWO  KINGD0M8 ANY MOB* At ALV"  The above quotations are euffeient tp bring the  matter clearly before those who care to note  wh*t God haa hound himaejf to perform amongthe  children of the Hebrew race, as descending from  Ahraham. Taaae and^la<*bb. .--���������:>; y,y,yy-J'\'yyx:.  1 All bible students know that from the death1  of King Solomon forward there were two separate kingdoms made out of the Twelve Tribea of  Israel.  One of these was known as "THE HOUSE OF  ISRAEL" nnd the other was known as "TIIE  HOUSE OF JUDAII." Sometimes one was called  Jacob and the other Israel. Sometimes Israel was  called Ephriam, and Jacob or Judah was called  Jerusalem.  However..the Lord sets forth that in the future  the two HOUSES were to be united into one house  in the land of their fathers, in the land of promise, in the land gu.cn to Abraham and his seed  by an "everlasting covenant" that could not be  and never has been broken.  I now ask the 1 JfBLB* INTERPRETERS has  God ever yet made good that promise of reunion  as set- forth in the above quotations? So as to  make clear the fact to the ordinary evcry-dav  reader. I hasten to sav GOD HAS NEVER YET  MADE GOOD THAT PROMISE. Therefore, fie  has yet to bring His word to pass, or He fails, or  He never spake by the Prophet Ezekiel, or there  is an awful misrepresentation somewhere.  The House of Israel and the House of Judith  have never yet been re-iiiiiicd. Ileiicc, as M believer in Bible truth. I affirm thai these two Houses  arc to be united in the future.' The man who dare  venture to sny they have been united according  to the prohpetic utterances of Kzckiel, would find  himself in a bad box by so saving. Kor here is  a sure word that would trip him up effectively.  Read the followinir: "And I will make them one  n a tion in the land upon the mountains of Israel:  And one king shall he king to them all: and th<y  shall no more he two nations, neither shall they  be divided isito two kingdoms any more at all."  Ver,se 2f>���������"Ami they shall dwell in the land  that J have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein  your fathers have dwelt: and they shall dwell  therein, even thev and their children, 'and their  children's children. FOREVKK."  Now if the Lord has united Israel and Jim!ah  according to the above promises, then He has  failed iu that they are no! there now. united under  one king. And they are not. even a nation. They  are not in possession of the land.' We must bear  in mind that God gave the whole land to Abraham  and his seed forever.���������-from the "River of Egypt  to the great River, the River Euphrates." Ami  every honest, intelligent Bible -student knows  that up to the present time the Hebrew descendants of Abraham have .not possessed the above  delimited countries, Has God failed, then? Will  He not yet be iv\\<' to His promise.' Yea, "verilv.  Most truly He will make good.  How then will lie make good His long-spoken  word.' He niusf do it in and hv the BLOOD f)E-  SCEXDEXTS OF THE "MAN OF THE COVE-  XAXT." Am] I ask: Where are the children of  Israel today.' They must be somewhere around,  and be a people of great numbers, capable of being used to acquire the mighty land of promise.  In verse 2ti of the above chapter. God S;Vs:  AND I WILL PLACE THEM. AND MULTIPLY  THEM. AND WILL SET MY SANCTUARY IX  TIIE MIDST OF THEM FOREVER MORE."  They are not yet so placed, and never were so  placed. Therefore they are yet to be placed.  Where are they? Are they Turks. Russians. Tsh-  maelites. Chinese. French, Germans or BRITISH.

J. J. PLOMMER,  ���������\  PreBB Correspondent.  WAR AND WEAPON8.  H;V  Breaking the Ice.  ��������� War is on "the unhappy side of life,  but it frequently results in that more  enduring happiness which springs  from Improved conditions and a better  understanding betwixt the belligerents.  Wan is never. Justifiable except when  no war Is less tolerable.  The earliest wars, like many wars  since, probably grew out of business  disputes.' Under primitive conditions  there were three classes of men whose  material Interests were liable to clash.  Tb.e first class were the .hunters, who  regarded the forests as their natural  and rightful "game preserves, and who  resented the encroachments-, of the  herdsmen, who - were ever seeking new  pastures for their flocks, and who constituted the second, class. These in  turn were constantly irritated by the  agresSivenesB of. the agriculturists,  who were' claiming ever-widening  areas for cultivation. Thus the farm?  ers.li* b reaking up the grazing lands,  the herdsmen in clearing up the forests/and the hunters in resisting both,  hastened the conditions which precipitated, bloody, strife.  Among these primitive wars was  that begun by Nimrod, The mighty  hunter," who, 2347 B. C. "began to be  a mighty one in the earth." (Gen. 10:8,  9). It 'was he who laid the beginning  of his kingdom at Babel, and who  wanted slaves and revenues to carry  Out his ambitious schemes.  ; The Hebrews in time all became  ws/Hke. oses and Joshua were among  ^jijteatdst military leaders of an*  tiquity. rStandin garmles were not  kept until the Ume of David, but the  Hebrews were all fighting; men, and  were always ready for war.' Bach man  provided bis owa rations, 'his owa  weapons, and want without pay; and  at times war waa the principal business of life.  The offensive arms of alt soldiers in  those days were ewprda, darta, lances,  Javelins, bows, arrows an dsflngB. The  defensive arms were helmets, cuirasses, bucklers, "armor for the thighs,  eta.

A skilled archer could throw  an arrow three hundred yards, and  with such accuracy as to hit a hasel  rod at that distance. Among modern  archers the English were the most  famous, and they clung to this weapon  as late as Queen Elisabeth's time  (1550), although they began to use  firearms as early as the reign of Edward HI. (1327):  Gunpowder, in some form, is thought  to have b^a known in China several  centuries before the Christian era. #A  Chinese cannon in 618 B. C. bore an  inscription like this: "I hurl death to  tiie traitor and extermination to the  rebel." A judicial opinion also credits  the Saracens with the use of gunpowder several centuries in advance of  their European neighbors. The Spanish Moors were also familiar with it.  The word "gun" Is from-the French  guigner, to aim with one. eye, hence  the gunner. The first gun was simply a long tube, with hammer or lock,  fired by a live coal. The matchlock  gun was invented in the fourteenth  century: the flintlock two , hundred  years later. The percusion cap gun  was invented at the beginning of the  nineteenth century, but did not come  into general use until about 1840.  Breech-loading guns were first used  in the great American Civil War.  Pistols were first manufactured at  Pistoja, Italy. They were taken to  England in 1526.  The art of rifling guns was known  tjhree' hundred years ago," but was not  appreciated.

The water supply of a. district is always considerably influenced by the  forests at or near the headwaters of  its streams. T. his is one of the reasons why large districts have been set  aside .by the government of the Dominion of Canada and many other governments to be kept permanently as  forests. ���������  The soil within the forest,- largely  composed as it Is of decaying and decayed leaveB, twigs and other vegetable matter, acts much like a sponge  in soaking up the.moisture that falls.  On the other hand, the absence of high  Winds within the forest does much to  prevent or lessen evaporation.  The Biding Mountain and' Trutle  Mountain forest reserves In.Manitoba  are good examples of this fact.

AND  Under the above heading there appears a very Interesting article in a  recent number of "T. P.'s Weekly."  The best wa yte waste money, it is  suggested ,1s tb keep It in the pocket.  Then, .whenever one sees a thing which  h fancies he would like he can buy It  at once; otherwise, he may forget it,  or, having had time to think It over,  conclude that he can get along without It.

Some useful suggestions are also  made as tb how money may be saved,  the chief of which Is to be systematic  in the expenditure of It, to mako a  careful estimate under such headings  as household expenditures, food, rent,  fuel, clothes, etc.,* not forgetting something for 't'he rainy* day." And for  this purpose the writer would no  doubt, had he been writing for the eyes  of Canadians only, have recommended  the Canadian Oovernemnt Annuities  System as giving the largest possible  return with the best possible security.

All  these things are important: but it Is  the spirit and enterprise of the people that will count most decisively ln  the final analysis. There Is Saskatoon,  where the citizens have recently set  themselves the task of raising a mil*  lion dollar industrial fund, to be used  not for the giving of bonuses, but taking up the bonds of approved enterprises.

There is Lethbridge���������turning the first sod of a great  street railway system, organised upon  the basis of municipal ownership.

Then a frenzied turkey gobbler got  mixed up In the'fight,  And I turned to leave the barnyard,  when I saw a startling sight���������  A wide-eyed, wondering nanny goad���������  she really made me quail.  For I thought .suppose this female-  should be deadlier than the  male!  So I tried to shoo her oft*, but I had'  reckoned without Bill,  Who galloped up, and butted th, and  helped down a hill;  More mussed up and discouraged then  I felt I could not be,  For the hen-male of that species la  more desdry than the she.  Some sheep were feeding near me, and  I caught the old   ram's aire,  SO I went and begged tor shelter at a  Uttle bouse near by;  Xnd tbere I saw a woman, and my  courage 'gan to fall.

Macleod, Alta.-^-With a substantial  publicity fund! now available, the  Macleod board of trade will engage  this season in* an energetic campaign  of new settlers and industries. Says  Mr. John Richardson, industrial corn-  Hit a aubject from one point of  view/and stratghthway some one Interested will give It a blow from the  other side.  Not long ago a well-known clergyman announced that In future hie  would wed no couple that failed to  bring from a reputable physician clean  bills of healthh.  ThiB led another preacher to demur, saying: "If you would rob the  holy marriage rite of Its sanctity, If  you would divest a sacred custom of  its beauty and 'holiness, if you would  make the union, of two souls a com-,  mercial transaction, then establish a  custom which wllr* permit the physician and his sentence to stand between two hearts that are drawn .to  each other."  This observation hit the doctors,  and straightway The Journal of the  American M|edical Association took  the liberty of paraphrasing it thus:  "If you would rob the holy marriage  rite of its present capacity for permitting the infection of your sisters  diseases, if you would divest a sacred  and your daughters with loathsome  custom of it- potentiality for perpetuating epilepsy and idiocy, if you would  make the union of two souls snyon-  mous with the union of two clean  bodies, then establish a custom which  will permit science to stand as a  faithful guardian of health and happiness over the two hearts that are,  drawn to each other?"  Thus it goes. Every question has  two sides. In thfs case science has  a claim to. recognition. ^  If statistics have any significance  tltere is a large percentage of persons  in America who stand in need of certification from some responsible authority before being allowed to imperil the health and happiness of pure  people by entering the state of wedlock.  For every ill beneath the sun there  is said to -be a remedy, but until the  remedy is found persons afflicted with  the 111 should in some way be prevented from spreading it abroad.

The Sanitary Market, 2513 Main  street, near Broadway, has a very  large and varied Btock to select from  thiB week, as a glance at their advertisement will show. There has been  some complaint on the part of other  local butchers at the low prices which  prevail at the Sanitary Market It Is  the business methods of this enterprising market which places them in a  position to sell high-class goods at  prices.which cannot be competed with.  It is comparatively easy to find a store  where goods may be obtained at low  prices, but it is difficult to get goods  of a high class quality at low,, prices.

The police ambulance, ..driven by  P. C. lmlah, collided with a Pender  street car, between Howe and Hornby  streets, about 12:30 p. m. Monday. The  amDuiance to keep irom colliding with  an ice wagon swerved to tne centre  of the' Btreet to crash into a street  car. The side of the ambulance was  shattered, but no great injury was  done.  The high speed of the city ambulances, notwithstanding the skill ot  the drivers and the efneieney of the.  announcement of their approach, is a  menace to the public.

'Prince George William, eldest son  of the Duke of Cumberland and his  chamberlain, were instantly killed in  an auto accident on the highway near  Friesak Prussia, on Monday morning.  They were on their way from Berlin  .to'Copenhagen, to attend the funeral  of the Prince's uncle," the late King  Frederick VIII.  The Prince, who was at the steering  wheel, by some mistake ran into a  part of the road which waB being repaired and lost control.  ttW Prince waB torn In 1880. His  father, the head of the House of  Guelph, was a cousin of the v late  Queen Victoria.  An article recently appeared in the  "B. C. Western Catholic,': commencing  with these words, 'The Rev." Oven  Bulkeley of Vancouver asserted last  week that''the Church of England is  a branch of the ��������� Holy : Catholic  Church.' This craving for Catholicity  is pathetic, and involves an added obligation on% the part of Catholics to  understand exactly what is meant by  the word, so that they may be able  to aid inquirers."

Suffice' it for  the present to say, that on St. AugUBt-  ine'B arrival to endeavor the conversion of the heathen Saxons,, he found  a duly ordained ministry of Bishops,  Priests and Deacons owing nothing to  and acknowledging no obligation ^ to  Rome, who had been established over  550 years, and had sent their delegates  to the United Catholic Church Councils abroad. At that time, A. D. 597,  the Saxons had driven its adherents  into Cornwall, Wales, and other portions of the British IsleB, from where  the church kept up an active missionary propaganda. It is ancient history  thajt Riehop Gregory of Rome instructed St Augustine in introducing  a liturgy among- his Saxon converts,  tbat he should use largely from that  of St John which he found In use  there, and not confine himself to tbat  of St Peter; and also that on account  of the missioner's- haughtiness, the  prelates of Catholic England would  not recognize or have any dealings  with the Roman missionary; and that  not until the time of Theodore, did  the Church of England agree to the  date of the Easter Festival and the  form of tonsure.  The Roman Church then grafted itself Into the ancient Btem of the English Church, and St Paul's warning  to the Gentiles was ignored by Rome;  it reads as follows: If thou "were  grafted in among them (the branches)  and with them partakest of the root  and fatness of tbe olive tree. Roast  not against the branches. But if thou  boast, thou bearest not the root, but  the root thee," and be goes on to say  that "God who grafted thee ln, can Mr. W. J.

By.irrigation is understood the economical distribution and use of water  on arid or semi-arid lands. Irrigation  in itself is not difficult, but is merely  the application of known principles.  Any man who has had experience with  growing plants, may, in a very short  time, .become very proficient in the  nse^of water.  Under What Conditions Necessary.  Irrigation is necessary where there  is a deficiency in the rainfall, either at  all seasons of the year or during the  ���������growing season. Water is an absolute  necessity to plant growth. If not only  serves as a food, but acts as a means  by which other plant food is conveyed  from the soil into the plant. If an adequate supply of water is not available  be precipitation or other natural  means, irrlgatio hshould be practiced.  During an exceptionally dry year or  a short period of doruth, many farmers feel the need of a little water to  help their crops mature, but sinee the  demand does not come every year or  the water supply is not available; they  do not supply the needed water,- The  advisability of preparing for such an  emergency depends upon the frequency  of the appearance of* the drougth and  the expense connected with such an  undertaking,  Some districts, like the Yakima Valley, and points on the Snake and Columbia Rivers, depend almost entirely  upon irrigation for their water supply.  Without this means' of supplying the  water this land would-be unproductive,  as it was before being irrigated: The  advisability of irrigating thiB lano is  shown by the immense returns produced under the present systems^ of irrigation. -    -  Methods of Applying tha Water.  One of three general methods is employed in applying water to land. It ts  aPPltod by flooding,.sprinkling, or ig  distributed by means of furrows. Other methods employed ln the distribution of water on land are modifcatlons  of one of these three methods. The  two formers methods mentioned are  used on small areas, such as lawns or  on meadows, where fate crop is not'in  rows of where ditches are undesirable.  The furrow- methods, which is most  common In the northwest, is used In  nearly all orchards, gardens or places  where crops are grown in rows. It is  |br far;Jthe:most desirable,.method in  commercial work, because flooding  and sprinkling often cause the clay  soils to bake.  Tha Frequency of Application and the  Amount Needed.  The frequency of application and  the amount needed depend upon the  crop, soil and % climatic conditions.  Some crops need more frequent application of water than others. The  rfequency of application must be such  as will keep the plants in a thrlvinr  condition and still not cause too rapid  fa growth. A sandy soil -heeds frequent applications of water because  It loses moisture by drainage snd evaporation, while a clay soil is very retentive and holds water long after the  sandy soil is dry. One application of  water during the late summer is often  sufficient In ������ semi-arid district Where  one depends entirely upon irrigation,  more applications are necessary. In  case there ie little' rain ln the spring  the first water should ������h������ applied about'  the middle of April and every five  weeks until the crop Is mature. More  frequent Irrigations may be needed on  some lands; this may be determined  by the amount of available moisture in  the soil. Cultivation should follow  each Irrigation and should be repeated  every ten days or two weeks until the  next- Irrigation. Do not think for a  moment that irrigation can be made to  take the place of cultivation, because  it Is not advisable and will Injure the  soil.  The quantity of water to use at each  irrigation is a local problem and must  be determined by experience. In general, if tbe crop is a deep-rooted one,  more water Is needed than for a shallow-rooted crop, because of the necessity of soaking up the upper layer of  soil before reaching the .plant roots.  It has been found that four inches of  water applied to land at one irrigation  makes the first four feet of soil moist  enough for good plant growth. However, this is not absolutely correct  when applied in practice, because of  the loss of water by drainage and evaporation. Since the practical farmer has  no way to dtermine the exact amount  of water lie has applied, he must rei3r  upon other methods to determine when  enough water has been applied. This  is easily done by a few observations.  Many people make this test by pushing  a hoe handle into the soil. If they can  sink ii; down eighteen inches they consider irrigation completed for that  time. Another method is to dig down  and e xamine the soil. If it retains its  form when compressed in the hand  it is considered moist enough. Tests  of this nature should be made at intervals   over  the   field,   since   different  soils need more or less water. After  a -few trials, any one can tell for himself whether or n</t enough water has  been applied. In case a' person still  feels in' doubt about the amount of  water necessary for the -best plant  growth, an examination of soil upon  which plants are doing weU will remove all doubts from his mind. ~  Preparation of the 8urface. . ���������.../  Anyone who has ever done any irrigation work will loudly proclaim the  advantages of irrigating on a well  prepared piece of land. Nothing is  more trying than to attempt to Irrigate  a piece of land which" hag been poorly  leveled or not leveled at all. It is .Impossible to secure uniform results, because the low places will be soaked  while the high points are still dry.  The land should be cleareed of all  stumps, rocks or sage brush and then  plowed as deeply as possible. If more  rocks come to the surface during the  prqcesB of plowing they should'j^e removed. The nigh places shoaia be  graded down and the depressions filled  care being taken not to remove all the  good soil from the hill tops in .t|e 'attempt ito fill the low places. In case  the soil on the hills Is shallow, the  upper part may be removed and -returned after grading is completed. This  may seem to be a lot of work, but is  absolutely necessary in many cases.  In case this is not possible, good rich  soil should be 'used to fill the tree  holes. This will give the young frees  a good start and also permit the newly  uncovered soil to : become congenial  for the tree roots when they-are ready  to occupy it. After the large depres-'  along are filled the work of leveling is  continued by means of the "planer."  This is a machine eighteen feet long  and seven teet wide, which may be  made at home. Take two pieces of  timber 3Tjc8"*18' and four pieces  3"x8"x7'. Place the two long, pieces  parallel seven feet apart, with the.four  short pieces distributed at intervals  of four feet between them. This leaves  b foot at either end for hitching, which  is done by baring holes in the end and  stretching a chain across. Larger  models]! of this machine may be inade  by keeping the same proportion^. The  machine described requires four horses  for the heat results. ^;';J-  Before using this machine, have the  surface of tbe soil loose and as free  as possible from rock6. Run first  lengthways then crosswa^s. the.^riyer  riding on the machine while on, the  high places and dismounting while  crossing the low places. This makes  the machine fill ������and empty ai the  proper time, afuch depead* up^ 0������e  driver for the best .results. .Tbj^e or  four applications of 1 this machine  should place the land in good condition.

An Irishman was working a placer  mine In Montana years afo, and visited  a small village several miles away to  get his tools sharpened.  Just as he was aobut to start back,  some one told him that if he would go,  home by the way of Sour Krout gulch,  he would not miss his way, and would  save several miles ot walking.  Pat started out, but after travelling  several miles, the sun was almost  down and be had seen nothing that  looked familiar. At last he made up  his mind that he was lost, and, to use  his own words, feared he "would be  robbed tend inurthered intirely }_ all  alone."  While he was In this state of mind  he spied a cinnamon bear on the side  of the mountain, and was almost ready  to fall to the ground with fright Recovering his self-possession a little, he  said:  "I thought it wouldn't do to let the  bear think I was afraid of him, and  concluded I might intimidate him by  making him think that*there were sev-  ] eral of me. So, walking a litttle  faster, I called out as loud as iver I  could, 'Mike! ' Oi say, Mike, hould 'on  till I catch up wid ye and the rest of  the b'ys.' When the bear heard that  he walked away and said not a word."  SOME FACTORS IN  BEEF PRODUCTION.  So many thiims bare to do with  profit in the production of beef that  the problem bet-omen complex. Probably tbe most important oue is the  matter of age. It is a,pretty well recognized principle that the'young animal puts -on guiu at smaller expense  than tbe older one, consequently  measuring by this principle alone the  young anlmalH should always be  placed In the feed lot Tbere are other Influences, however. The condition  of the animal when It goes into the  feed lot Is important ' Then, too, tbe  demands of the market must not be  overlooked. Some beef markets require animals of moderate finish. As  a rule, however, tbe fatter the animals within' certain limits the higher  the price paid, by the!,buyer; conse-  quently_tbe older and more mature animals are upt to reach the' desired state  of fatness sooner than; will a very  young animal.       '<-<'''������������������'-���������' ��������� '���������>������������������'.' ���������-'���������������������������"/  As the fattening period progresses  the cost of putting on flesh becomes  greater, and greater; consequently the  animal that will go Into tbe feed lot  and fatten with the greatest rapidity  is the one tbat Is tbe most -profitable.  Then very thin animals usually sell for  the least as feeders.   This makes the  Mamma���������How many sisters did  | your new playmate tell you he, had?  Willis���������He's got one. He tried to  catch me by saying he had two half-  sisters, but he'll find out I've studied  fractions.  . It is on* grand mistake to try to  get steers on what is known as full  teed too. soon, writes W. 8. A. Smith  In Farm and Fireside. Personally I  never git my steers oa what Is  known as full feed���������that Is to, say,  they never in any twenty-four hours  get all they can eat When does a  steer make his galnf When he is  lying down. It Is impossible to get  .economical gains It conditions are  sueh tbat cattle have no comfortable place to rest The Hereford  breed of beef cattle has long been  * favorite with many feeders. The  fin* Hereford cow shown'Is a good  type of this easily fattened breed.  margin between the baying and selling  price* wider, and therefore it might  frequently pay to buy very thin animals, provided they bad good quality  and the feeder knew haw to make  tbem gain rapidly. Tbe price of feed,  of course, has a great deal to do with  this proposition. .  Then, too, bogs which follow tbe,  cattle must not he forgotten. Feeding shelled corn is always attended  with aqme waste On most farms tbe  com is either fed In the broken ear  condition or shelled. As a result  bogs must always have, a part in the  cattle feeding proposition- Tbe amount  of corn that will pass through tbe animal undigested will depend somewhat  upon the condition of the cattle. >If  tbe cattle are in prime condition tbey  will digest larger quantities than If  tbey are not doing very welt Tha  universal practice is to have bogs follow the cattle, and the amount of pork  produced In this way la a very isonsld*  arable item in reckoning proflls. Of  course this varies widely. It varies  because of tbe kind of com used, because of the season and tbe number of  bogs that follow. If. cattle are being  fad very heavilr the amount of pork  produced will be large. During the  early part of tbe feeding period, when  only so much grain as is consumed  promptly is used, the waste will be  slight It will not do, however, to  leave hogs out of the reckoning.  Fattening ftstlen For Hegs. <  John C Burns; professor ot animal  husbandry ot the A. and If. college of  Texas, says tbat wltb tankage to supplement a grain ration cottonseed meal  or wbeat bran is not "really needed  In the fattening of hogs. He believes,  however, tbat it would prove profits*  bie to add a limited quantity of molasses to the ration both as an appetiser and to cheapen- the feed, as molasses at 15 cents a gallon is cheaper  than grain at prevailing prices. He  recommends tbe following proportions  as a well balanced fattening ration:  Nine pounds of ear corn or seven  pounds of shelled corn, two pounds of  black strap molasses and one pound  of tankage. The grain should be soaked ln water about twelve hours, and  the molasses should be diluted with  about its own. volume of water and  the tankage thoroughly stirred in it  and poured over the. grain in tbe  trough at the time of feeding.  0*1' ** *'** 'S'.-'a1������'��������������� 'V * %��������� ���������r.vrv ���������*"rvr*^vt  ; CROPS AND 1  I LIVESTOCK j  +*M"M.fr M..l.������.l"t.,l.4"M H 4***4 *>i  Ottawa.���������The Census and Statistics  Office issues a bulletin on crops and  live stock.

Tha meaning of what Al said *fc>ltt  could not catch, but he saw the mob  disperse, running apparently ln the  same general direction aa himself,  and he wondered even then at the.  marvellously true accent and ready  wit which had tor the moment deceived the Indians.  For twenty yards the' two tore  through the .impending brush or blundered In the dark amongst logs and  windfalls, then they'emerged upon the  main- trail which led to Khelowna's  camp.' If tbey tad had time to think,  the smooth firmness ot it would have  ..suggested to them the numbers ot an  enemy" who could wear such a trail la  so short a time.  As-they ran past what looked In the  1 dark like a brush lean to, a man leapt  out upon the path, and Al, wno was  now leading, repeated his cry.' But  the man was too near to be deceived,  and though Al was past him, the Indian tried boldly to block Holt's way.  To Rolt be was the, full hack of his  boyhood's days. Without decreasing  his pace he pretended to swerve, and  then, as the man closed on him, turned and ran right at him, .tilted the  Indian's chin up with, the butt of his  open hand so that his head was shoved almost off his shoulders, and so  passed amongst the great dim pines  which stood for goal posts, through a  line of Smouldering fires, seeing only  the tall thin figure of the tireless run-  ner in front. ,      ."  As -they ran a horse whinnied, and  Al, checking lor a minute, branched  oft tbe main trail.  "Holy smoke!"-he panted, *u Rolt  .overhauled him. "That's their horse  .camp. Let's ��������� chance it, Boss. ., It's  worth the risk," and he stole swiftly  - along through the bushes until they  opened out into a narrow swamp, not  ap acre In extent all told.  In It twenty or thirty horses bad  been ptcketted, and as luck would  have tt not a man was in sight  "Cut tha ropei of pull the pegs,"  gasped Al, and bia own jack knife  snicked and slashed about the hordes,  reckless pf their heels or of any who  might be on the trail. ������n-������r--v  "Now jump on and git," he added, fS2K  "I'll    ffcjsb    'em.     Jump, blank it,  Jump!" he screamed. asr the Boss  lesltated. and a crashing of brush in  the direction of tbe fires warned him  that theminute* of grace bad all but  expired-  Bolt obeyed him as. the last rope  was severed/ and Al, losing bis head  at last, cried in his triumph, "Now,  * catch us, you swine!" as he swung  himself oh f6 the back of the last  horse and galloped into the bush.  ^ As if in answer to bis taunt, a dozen  Indians, dashed Into the opening, and  four or five rifles: were, ^fired point  blank at the retreating figure.  Luckily his horse was not hit, but  for a moment the old man swayed and  all but :s toapied from bis seat, but  though heT rode bare-backed, be got  his grip again, and In spite of the  . 3 deadly ^sickness which-took him and  the, warm trickle from tbe numbed  shoulder, he managed to stick oh,  1 whilst the loose horses, frightened by  the shooting, thundered pa6t, Jostling  bim as tbey went', into the darkness  in which'Rolt bad vanished.  For a mile, perhaps, he let his horse  gallop, almost .lying on its neck to  avoid overhanging boughs, .maintaining 8' precarious position by holding,  on to the horse's roaoe with his uninjured hand. ��������� s  Sorely' against' his will he had to  .   -let his rifle go.   If his enemies caught  htm, tbe rifle would be useless now,  and he had all that be could do for  tile one good arm left him.  When at last he came out upon the  prairie he reduced his pace to a lops  and sat up, muttering as he guided  his horse with his knees and tried  to hold up his wounded arm with his  left hand.'

CHAPTER XXIII.  In the absence ot Rolt. Jim Combe  took command of the party at the  ranch, and military !aw was-'dioctareil'-'.  4hat is to_say, Jim Ihshifcfd upon It ok-  ing on the bouse as in a state of siege,  though, as Anstruther protested,  there was not an Indian in sight nor,  he averred, ever likely to be ag^ln.  .[������������������The' men were divided into watches,  so that there "was not an hour of the  day or night whefn some of them were  hot on guard, whilst no work was undertaken which could lead, the defenders to any distance from their  base.-.'-'  : On the first day after the-departure  of the posse, shots were heard over  the hog's hack, and Jim, who made a  reconnaissance' in person, reported  that a band of Chilcotens* was killing  cattle, but though 'the loss inflicted  would he serious, he would not listen  to Anstruther*s suggestion that an attempt should be made to drive off the  marauders.  -He was determined that the story  of tbe burning stacks should not be  repeated. It was better to lose anything than to.expose the women to  tbe danger of a rush upon the bouse.  On the second day there was not  even the-sound of a shot to keep up  the vigilance of the defenders, ' and  the.scouting party sent out by Jim reported all clear tp the sky line:.  "Our . people have driven ' the Indians clear out'of the country," asserted Anstruther. "Arson at night  is the limit of their daring. It ia not  likely that such miserable devils  would make. a stand against arm. d  white men  been' courtesy itself; but avoiding any  outward demonstration, he had kept  Kitty at a distance.  So had her paMent.'

She detested* Jbn for bis many perfections, and  'could not love 'Frank because he simply would not let her.

"I did not tear down tbe stables until you came, hut tbey aught to go  along with the other buildings It yon  think tbat the Indians are still likely  to make trouble."

Every night, at least three different inmates of the ranch stole out \to*  -go 'over the defence". There waa always some one mieslng from the  group around the piano, trying, the  doors and re-arrc2g*ng tha barrlcadea  whilst no one was look'ng.  The blow fell In tli? third night.  The whole prairie laud had been  swallowed 'np ln gloom ln which ho  star*' showed, ho wind moved, > when  Mrs. Rolt woke her husband with a  gentle pressure of his arm.  "Don't make a noise, dear," she  whispered, "but listen. I suppose It  is onlj a rat." ,  "Not even .that Tolly. It must have  been your fancy. Go to sleep, llt;le  woman,1 and don't worry.",,  Rut at that moment a low knock  spumled on the, bed-room door. Instantly Rolt rose and opened it. Jim  Combe was there with his rifle In his  hand-  v  "Bring your gun along, Rolt They  are trying to fire the bouse.".  In/silence the two crept: down the  stairs, at the foot of which stood Anstruther, Old Al and Jack Fairclougb,  with their Winchesters in their hands.  The :doctor was not there,, but Jim  led the way into a small room which  jutted out from the'face of the bouse,  a room which, they had laughingly  christened :tbe excrescence. Rolt hed  built it on as a conservatory for bia  wife, to connect-with: bis own study.  Both sides of it as well as the top,  being of glass, It was the weakest  point in their defences, and in it,  therefore, hisd been piled more than  its share of furniture barricades. It  formed the foot, of a letter U of which  the main front of the bouse was the  stem. '  . This room was in absolute darkness  when the men entered it, but it seemed tb Rolt .that something stirred  feebly in the corner of it. .      Presently, a. voice, barely audible  even to their straining ears, whispered:  "Are yon there, Jim?*V  Combe moved silently across towards the voice.  ."Put that in your pocket for me, will  you, old chap, until we've played this  hand? Are you ready, now? Has  each man picked his panel?    Never  stay to hold the Indians whilst the  others get through'." ������ mind the glass.   Ready!  "Which horses shall we bring m?" !    There followed a faint  "Mrs. Rolt's, Miss Kitty's, your own.  that stallion (he will have mendsd by  now), and two more. The two sorrels  I should think are best"  "What about Mr. Anstruther's hunter?"  "His looks won't pay for his keep.  He ain't the horse for this job. We  aren't going fox hunting or hurdle  jumping, and he'd play out before he  got half way. The .country breds are  the'only ones tbat could stay the distance."  "I think you underrate my horse's  staying powers."  Anstruther had come in unobserved  scratching,  and'then a feeble blue f?ame appeared for a second, after which a great  and lurid red light lit the whole conservatory, and flooded the front of the  house, showing up with the ��������� utmost  distinctness the piled furniture, the  crowded and broken limbs of Mrs.  Rolt's favorites, and the figure of the  doctor behind a soup plate filled with  some stuff to which he had set fire.  But the five men had no eyes for  these things.

The Chilcotens had seen this Chinese fire the Christmas before, but it  had been lighted then to amuse them;  now it clung to their crouching figures, bathing them in its hideous glow,  and betraying them to the rifles,  which suddenly opened fire upon  them.

Another man might' have struck  match after match and trusted to-  chance, but even thsn Jim was methodical, breaking tbe Uttle twigs and  laying them in closed packed bundles,  so that when the small star of light  appeared it grew steadily, and stll  the watchers oooM see Jim feeding  bis fire and making sore tbat. tbo  flames had made good their bold.

Perhape he  knew enough to keep In out of the  rain." sneered Fairclough, who detested the doctor, whose butt he had always been.  "He knows a good deal now. 'mongst  other things, what a blanked fool you  ���������re!   Poor old chap!"  There was a curious choking sound  In Jim's savage voice, as he groped  about in the dark and turned something over on the floor.  "Thank you. Anstruther. Will you  take his feet? Here,* Rolt strike a  light We've got 'to chance their  shooting."  Rolt struck ona, and In the short  gleam ot It the others saw Jim and  Anstruther. lift the body from tbe  floor and put It upon the table wheje  the red fire had been.  "That's the first to go." muttered  Jim. "Always wanted the lead- and  would have it.

Boas," and  Jim drew a largo worked table-cover  over the dead man's face and turned  to see that the barrlcadea were aa  strong as tbey could be made.  When he was at hla post again he  drew from his pocket that which the  doctor had given bim. It waa a ct>n>  mon playing-card and on it waa written in pencil a London address. Beneath this the doctor had written In  big letters which wandered uncertainly over the Wank space: "So long,  Jjm. See you again some day."  , "So he knew It was coming, did he?"  mused; Jim. "and he took It all ba-'k at  the. last, al! his tall talk about ee'ene?  nnd annihi:atiou of matter. Well, I  guess the Haadi?app:r knew the Do/s  handicap, end will be the best judge  of hlsronnlng."^ 1  '- And then, as he looked ont in the  reddened gloom, whilst bis eyrs trl d  to pierce through the fog, bis mind  tried to peer Into -tbat Next R^oth  where the doctor now was. and if he  failed to place the doctor, he at least  managed t������������������> place himself. He;'saw  the' triviality of the things which bad  so embittered :bim rfoif- tbe; lasts few  days, and even confessed td himself  that when it came to fighting, his rival  was not much of a niutf after all: If  that which bad made the scratch on  Anstruther's heck had been an inch  or two to the left Jim Combe felt that  his memory of the last few days  would have been a lead .for him to  carry all the rest of his.life. But the  first grey light of the morning broug.it  Jim back from the Unknown to the  present with a shock. As the mists  rolled away the temporary absence  of the Indians was explained. They,  had withdrawn to gather force for  their real attack. Whatever answers  to the fiery cross amongst the red  men had been flying around tbe country, ln the last two days, and Jim  Combe had never known until that  moment how mauy Indians there were  scattered through the timber of British Columbia.  The hog's back was dotted with  their camp fires and tents; a line of  tbem stretched across the big meadow; another body of them held the  road to Soda Creek. The ranch was  as regularly Invested as if Its foes had  been European troops Instead of mere  redskins. With infinitely more cunning than' even Combe bad given  them credit for, the Chilcotens had  allowed the white men to return unmolested to their lair, only to find  themselves in a trap from which there  appeared to be no escape unless Toma  or Fairclougb had won through and  could bring help.  Until this last morning Jim had fe't  certain that one or other would succeed ln getting through; but now,  seeing the methodical way in' which  the Indians had conducted the campaign, he not. only doubted, he disbelieved It, and when he met Kitty a  little later, her pretty face pale and  troubled, a great wave of pity and remorse almost unmanned him.  In his anguish of mind he tried to  speak to his little friend in the o'd  way that had been so dear to both cf  them, but his tongue failed him, and  she, not realizing that it was the old  ! Jim, treated him with the coldnrs's he  had been at such trouble to teach her  ;mii  * '"M3  The waaaua know, tbough they asked no ejuaetlona."
