H. 0. trtjrlor school hero, February 4 to 9. This is the targCBt tractor school ever held,at; tiny point In Canada, and" plainly establishes th.e fact that Letubrtugf is the centre ot tho largest tractor-buying public in tho Dominion. ' ' MALE DISTRICT Last fall-Miss Vora Connolly, n young Now York writer, visited Loth-bridge as well as other parts ot tlie wost, to gather material for a sorica ot articles on farming, and recently her series have been appearing in the Country Gentleman, a Curtis publication which Is probably tho most famous agricultural journal in the world. The following is the article Miss Connolly wrote on her visit to tho Goal-dalo section neur Luthurldgo. Residents of that section will rocognize the characters referred to: "I was especially interested In this farm wife, a Mrs. P--, because 1 had been told she was an ex-school-tuuch-cr. And 1 know that there Is no class of wOjinen In tho world 30 full of the longing to farm as school-teachers. Thore Is sorriethlng in tho confinement of tho schoolroom which breeds this hunger for tho world's "big open paces;" I wondered how this schoolteacher . Hkod nor prairies, now that she wbb on them. "We turned' from tho muln road Info a private? ono and whirled up tho latter to a very comfortable-looking,, roomy, two-story house, I had not' sobn a homier place in tho Canadian West. Out In tho barnyard some Cine I yoring turkeys gobbled at tho buby chicks running about, while a little yellow-haired child -in u pretty gingham frock played -among them, shrieking. . , i "It was Mr, P-�-'s mother who received mo-and oh, the graclousness Ot thoso pralrlo folk to the stranger! "I'll call my daughter-in-law," she bmlled. "I'in only a visitor bore." As I was waiting I looked about me. Rare wore- tho latest popular songs (m tho piano, and the lutost novels. One could have sworn that u city'i* traffic" swept by tho windows Instead ct rustling wheat fields. But Mrs. P- was coming In, with the fresh, vigorous greeting of. a, young woman of tho West. She had Si fine, strong face- the face ot.a thinker. And her poise was that ot one used to authority. "We call this Lynuale Farm," she replied, when I had told her my errant. J have wondered since why, some of thoso busy women did not tell me politely that I was an Intruder, with no right whatever to come and question thetn. None did so; and the facos of nil,'lit/up with an eager smile when I asked them to tell the women "back liorpe" what farm lite was like and what chances there woro for others. We raise wheat, alfalfa, oats, timothy and stock. � Is that what you wanted to know?" she was saying. 1,1 laughed. "No. Not exactly. I want the story of your own experience hero. AVas it a struggle?" ' "I'll bo qulto Honest with you, you want the truth, don't you? I see you or you'd have gone to the roal-csUito Tii'nis for information. "To begin at tho beginning, Mr. P- came out hero in 1908 from Illinois. Ilia brother was up hore, and, he saw groat chances for my husband. They bought, between them, sovon-, quarter sections of land and wont into'dlversi-fled farming. It would have paid them, had they'nol had flvo years of drought Without a.: break, "Yob. this''-wiid';Irrigated land. It Is tho^b'OBt to halve, of course.

The same close searching that goes on in Toronto and other ol the more westerly cities in Canada must be applied In tho eastern cities.

So many who start the day's isv^rk with full vigor, tire as the day's work goes on and arc forced to make frequent slops to relieve an aching back. This backache is not due to the work, but to defective kidney action, and will disappear if treatment with Gin Pills is resorted to. We have a number of testimonials on file from men who have had to give up work on account of backache, rheumatism, and the various ills that iollow poor Kidney action.

You.feel that-every possible safe-guard is thrown about you for your protection. The Merchant, where .commercial enemy,* has become your httsmeMrepresentative. Your pleasure is his command.
