Can. g A cold wind on the Black Sea wnist les down tho Bosphorus, causing tho caiques to dance excitedly, the steamboats to stagger in their path from shoro to shore. Upon the water all is commotion, making the immobility of tho opposing coasts beneath the wind resemble something like a shrinking backward movement Snow has already fallen; more is coming. The shore of Asia, underneath the woody hills-, is lined wit]; cypress groves concealing cemeteries, with .villages and towns and mosques and summer palaces, which in fine weather smile to their reflections In the water, but to* day are frowning, their reflections troubled. Upon, the shoro of Europe, watching Asia, stands the sovereign city, the desired of nations, divided by the waters of tho Golden Horn, which cannot now bo seen for masts of shipping. Low lying on the east hack of that inlet is a picturesque, chaotic jumble of old painted houses, mostly wooden. That is Galata-what one.may call the harbor quarter, abode of halt the scun. of the I/evant. Above it on the same. bank rises Pera, cresting the ridge which overlooks the Bosphorus and trailing down along Its shores-Pera, with its plate- glass windows and, red roofs like carbuncles. This is the European quarter, with hotels, banks, clubs and embassies, and elegant Parisian shops, along its famed "Grande Rue.' ' , Confronting it, acrose the Top- khaneh bridge, where:all the nations of the world rub shoulders daily, there stands a city of' another character, majestic and of peerless beauty-old Stambul. *  * * * * * From the Asiatic shore, directly opposite, you see Stambul and Pera, side by side, with Galata just peeping over their joined ihands (the bridge). But you turn from Pera scornfully to feast your eyes upon the. city of the Moslems-tho hill of palaces and mosques and distant cypresses, crowned by white domes and needle-'pointed minarets. These later crowd" together in perspective. As one rows down the Bosphorus ou summer evenings *hey look-like' spears-of a gigantic past caught in the sunset., At first, when one dias passed the bridge, .Stambul seems much like Pera. But soon a typically Qrieptal perfume strikes the-nostrils, the streets grow narrower and more picturesque, the crowds, more leisurely-I am speaking now of any ordinary year-there are corners, vistas, grdups that would en-heant a painter.. The shop's become no longer shops' as we conceive them, �hut caves of mystery and strange adventure. The merchants will Retain you, if you speak their language, not for commercial ends, but to discuss the news. The pious Moslem keeps a shop to pass the time. The talk, the bargaining, is all his joy. If he sells a thing it is the will of Allah. To niake much money is, upon tha whole, a wicked thing. There is' no end of pleasant chat and natural kindness, no one dreams of looking; down, upon his fellow man, however humble. Life here is much as it has always been since Muhammad the Conqueror "divided the city and its,churches equally between the two religions," Q-reefc and Moslem. The brilliant Oriental' dress has given place, witty thp. respectable, to Europ&ah suits. The fez "and the inevitable dangling rosary, alone are left to distinguish the young Parisian. But the common people still-wear a distinctive dress-in winter generally hidden by some foul old'Frankish Qqat. There are Asiatic Moslems in tihe markets still in gorgeous robes; the women are still veiled, mysterious figures and underneath the surface everywhere thero is no change. * * * ' � * * The summer has gone; the embassies have returned from summer quarters at Tharapia. The harem ladies have returned from great cool palaces along the Bosphorus to the strict incarceration of their city> life. They look hack upon the freedom of largo gardens, of tho Friday promenade iu caiques to the Sweet Waters of Asia- where now the sward" Is starred with', . , . ,, , ,.. , blossoms of the autumn crocus and' of tuberculoma.

The wheat was ground into flour at; Port Colborne on the 2nd, reloaded and reached Toronto the next day, over the Grand Trunk on Its way to St, John, N,B. On January 15th the flour will be started from St. John, for South Africa on the steamship Bendue.

BOVRIL, contains all that is good in beef in its most concentrated form. 7-1-13 CLOSING SERVICE OF WEEK OF PRAYEf The journey of the wheat from the prairie farms to far distant British porttiia herd of 300 to be placed on a 320 will mark a new record of such transportation over an all-British route. It will have required less than two months to collect the wheat at Winnipeg, turn it into flour at Port Colborne and deliver it for consumption at Capetown. The concluding meeting of the week of prayer was held in Wesley church last evening with only a fair attendance. Rev. T. P. Perry occupied the chair and had with him Rev. J. B. Pickle, Rev. A. G-. Camfiron and Mr. A. E. Dunlop. The subject of the evening, "Religion in the World", was first dealt with by Mr. Dunlop, who narrated the present war in the Balkan states, and the significrmce of same. The speaker said the people in EARL GREY BUSY London, Jan. 11'.-Karl Grey, who are women shut up with the brutal fact?; of life-birth, marriage, death, unsentimentalised - highly educated women, many of them, and of great re-''' ilnement.

The acre ranch, 100 miles south of Edmon- j these states were passing through the " * ' greatest* crisis in their history and that the outcome of the struggle meant, much for their religious and educational welfare. The Turkish empire has for a long time been waning and since 1830 when Greece gained her independence from the Turkish rule. Mr. Dunlop also referred to ihe Armenian massacres and stated that as a result of the war Turkey had lost practically evln Muhammad!" there would be a masacre, and half the troops that guard the foreign quarter would v�ry likely mutiny. They arc high' above tiie passions of the mop- "May Allah show no fviercy to the Franks one day, as they have shown no mercy to us in our hour of need," one murmers hotly; but the others shake their and shrug and say "God's will he done." The bitter Black Sea wind has ceased its violence; the snow has come, to be the Viuding sheet of inany a corpse out Tchatalja way. i tween America and England, is one of that type of Englishmen, who at the conclusion of their active' service for the state, take up movements for the general good, which in fact keep them almost, if not more, busy than did their public duties. After tho usual few years in parliament, 1 Earl Grey became administrator of ' Rhodesia, and by easy stages reached the Governor-Generalship of Canada, which is, next to the Viceroyal-ty of India, the highest post in the Colonial 'service. His term in the Dominion was a busy one, and since his return home he has not allowed any grass to grow under his feet. He ton, owned by George L. Simpson, formerly of Des Moines, who has come to central Alberta to engage in the hog industry. "Hogs are the best paying livestock that can be raised anywhere," Mr. Simpson said here today, "but the wonder is that not more farmers are engaged in the business. I have raised hogs all my life and have made money with them, Formerly while ' In Iowa, I fattened hogs on corn, but I have ascertained that wheat and bran .abundant in this country, will /serve the purpose. I "It is my purpo&e to make the farm In the Red Deer district modern in I every respect. We have already in-ptalled two large windmillB for a supply of water and erected a number of sheds, to which units can be added as the herd is increased. We expect to have fully 1,000 hogs ready for the market in the fall of 1914. "The fact that Edmonton has two large packing houses and there will be another one in a short time, ensures a good market, doing away entirely with tlhe enormous losses of shrinkage as a result of long shipments Another thing, probably the most important from the grower's Aegean Sea. find was working out in Hr's own good way the dc clop-ment ot the Chnsticm religion. Moslem religion is doomed and in its place the religion of .Irsus Christ will reign. The present war, added Mr. Dunlop, was a fight between the cros3 nnd the crescent. Rev. Mr. Cameron followed Mr. Dunlop in an impressive address in which lit; conn � selled his hearers to cultivate the missionary spirit of helping each other. He did not believe in separating home and foreign missions, as that was not the true spirit of Christianity. Mr. Cameron thought that every right-minded person had a desire in his or her heart to help mankind generally. The majority of people today were in sympathy with missions which really meant the lifting up towards Jesus of the world as a whole. A.t the conclusion of the meeting a brief consecration service was held. has taken up the celebration of the hundred vears peace with enthusiasm, I viewpoint, is-that prices will remain and is working hard for it.

"These people and the thousands of homeseekers going into the north country must have meat and provisions. The western people have money and they are ready to exchange it for staple commodities, including pork, butter, eggs and cheese and other farm products. , "Central Alberta, which is an ideal country for hogs and mixed farming, occupies the same position today that prevailed in Iowa at the close of the civil war. There is plenty of good land and it is cheap, besides there are opportunities for securing farms by homesteading. Tha Peace River district, with its millions of acres of land, less than a half of one per cent is occupied at present, gives every promise of feeing converted Into the most productive grain and mixed farming country in America."
