OUR POINT OF VIEW. There was a -blaze in the Ranch- men's Club at Calgary, but no one has yet attributed the cause to hot Scotch. Riley gave the Gleichen Liberal nomination, to Scott. The -worm turn and give Riley a sound drubbing Victor Murdoch, the Kansas insur gent, calls Speaker Cannon a "'stand stiller."

This is told of one of the Cam- erons of Lochiel: The chief, when bi- vouacking with his son in the noticed that the lad had rolled up a snowball to make a pillow. He thereupon rose and kicked it away, saying sternly. "No effeminacy, boy." President W. C. Brown, of the New York Central -Railroad, said at a lun- cheon, apropos of his "back to the farm" pronouncement: "Some city men take very hard my suggestion about a return to agriculture.

Kansas newspaper man- -a true friend of Kansas young discovered how his and other young ladies may keep their hands soft and white. Here is his recipe: "Soak CUT ALL THE HAY.

Stockmen are becoming anxious about their supply of feed for the win- ter. Lumbermen in Eastern British Columbia are wondering where their horses will get fodder, and the farmer with a few head of stock, and the liv- eryman with his needs as great, if j. not greater, than usual, are facing the situation rather-nervously. The Provincial Department acted wisely in sending out a circular urging the farmers -to cut all the hay on their farms. In some parts of Alberta the hay crop is very fair, but as many of the farmers in past years have on- ly cut what they absolutely needed, the notification ought to bring to market a lot of hay that would other- wise remain uncut.

GRAHAM'S FIRST COUSIN. When the Laurier party was at Brandon reperesentations were made iby the Grain Growers' Association that Andrew Graham, of Pomeroy. should appointed to the Railway commission to succeed the late Hon. Thos. G-reenway. Mr. Graham's name has frequently been proposed, and he seems to be the unanimous choice of the farmers. In his droll way, Hon. G. P. Graham remarked that he heard with surprise the recommendation for the Railway Commission. "He bears the same name as said the Minister, "and when I tell you our fathers are brothers and our. mothers sisters, you rest satisfied that it is due to no peronal animosity on my part that he is not instantly appointed." (Laugh tcr and cheers.) ed cheers.) "I think under the could give the assurance of sympathet- ic he said. If Graham, of Pomeroy, Is of as good WHAT IS A VACATION WITHOUT A CAMERA?

July the midst of what is generally admitted to be a trying season, it is'well to think of Montana's advantages as compared wifch'_some other sections of this country. It may roe a, -bit dry in the Treasure State, but no such condi- tions prevail within its borders as are described in a, letter, dated July 17, written by a North Dakota farmer to a friend in Great Falls. "The 250 acres which I seeded are just about brought to naught, except- ing possibly 60 acres of flax on old ground. Our flax on spring break- ing and all the "wheat is a complete failure. I certainly shall not canvas the 'binder for it. but we are .hoping for enough flax to reimubrse us for seed. Since the last of May we have not had a rain worthy of the name until July 4, and this was augmented liy a sort of Presbyterian sprinkle on the 5th, perhaps an inch in all, and this is the sum total of our rainfall. "tNorth Dakota will not do more than raise sufficient for seed and feed for another year; that is. taken as a whole. Not 10 per cent, of our county will have more than a 5 per cent, yield, and our immediate section is an absolute failure. Tihe flax that was sown late on what is known as old ground promises something, and wheat sown on drop summer fallowing will give perhaps a 25 per cent, crop possibly 50 per cent.; the rest for the most part. naughL" This rancher goes on in an opti- mistic strain, seemingly not discour- aged with the results of a bad year, saying: WE MIGHT CONSIDER A TEM- PORARY MOVE, BUT NOT A SALE. THE EXPERIENCE OF PIONEER- NG SHOWS THAT THE FELLOW WITH THE STAYING GRIT IS THE COMFORTABLE HOLDER IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS. SO WE WILL HANG ON UNTIL A MORE PRO- P1TUOUS SEASON." payments Enquire for Next Excursion to Pictur- esque Arrow Lakes Arrow Lake Orchards, Ltd.
