HicK (EL WaKely To extend to women tho 9nme homesteadlng rights in the Canadian west as wen, following the suggestion of our correspondent from North Dakota, would havo at least this one happy result, that the number of unmarried men in the threo prairie provinces would speedily bo reduced to a mere handful, The man who was not already possessed of a life partner to take out a quarter section of land for him would logo very little time in securing one, and probably when tho books of the Interior department vero made up a year hence, the Hon, Mr. Oliver would find that this was about as easy a way of getting rid of what ever remains of: the free lands in the west asthe ozpodlent that he laid before parliament a few weeks ago. The Dominion lands act In its present form estends th� right of homestead ing in the Canadian west to widows with dependent families. A provision to this effect has been in the act tor a great many years, and IUb con -tinued in tho revision that was prc-sentod to parliament this session Tho proposal made by our corrcspon dent that we should copy North Da kota, in .giving women the snincrlght in all respects as men to take up frco lands, is ono that has never commended itsolf to the official mind because it was considered that the conditions of settlement attached to the homcsteadlng lands were such as very few women could fulfil. Uowever with the growing independence of the weaker sex and the feeling alluded to by our correspondent that "the time has passed when tho sole aim of a woman's life is the getting of a home through marriage," it may bo that some of our women would bo willing to face thfe hardships and privations of a pioneer, and the minister of the Interior might give tho matter his attention before the Dominion lands Act is reintroduced next session. It it were only as an advertisement to attract to the Canadian West a large number of the fair sex the suggestion is worth Mr. Oliver's vhile study ing, not in the hope that they would continue to fight the battle of lite alone, but rather that the reverse would almost of necessity result The last census returns of, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta showthat even tho widows do not havo to wait long for comforters. It is true, as our corrospomk�nt observes, thnt In j her own State of Dakota women are j given tho same right as men in regard to taking out homesteads, but our information 1h that in the majority of cases the girl who applies for a homestead does so merely for the benefit of her prospective life partner, so that the latter may have twice tho area to which he would bo entitled in his own right- This is practically doubling the homestead for those who ore not already married, but if tho object bo to people the soil in the most rapid and satisfactory way, there is something to be said for it. BROTHER MAN. men, from slumber wake-fight for the right, The truth, and all that would emancipate Prom thraldom ami the tryanny of sin. 1-et not thy life go floating Mgfh tho stream, Or helpless drift as wind and tide direct; Tint dare against opposing force to steer- Laugh at all foars, and in God's strength go on. Ills great abound-tho foe is strong, and seeks To drag thy brother man down in the mire, And leave him tower than tho beasts to mourn. No man hns yet upon this round world trod Who might not live tho noble life that Uod Designed; and, passing up from height to height, At length an entrauco gain to purer realms, Crowned with tho laurels of a per feet life. If all men thus cold live, then would there be No need to starve or labor, fight or weep; Out sin is strong, and to effect its cause Rests neither day nor night, and for man's fall l^nys down deluding snare;!, insidl ously Dy slow degrees, tempts him until he yields; Then having that foul end at length ach loved, Casts o'er his reason a dark cloud which dulls All finer thoughts, and as he blindly walks, Sett free the passions, that like storms within Roam o'er tho senses, till beyond control They devastate tho body, mind and soul. Oh! man, for man thy brother stand and fight-Let not the dust of self thy vision blind; If free from falling thou thyself can stand, Thank Ood, and turn to aid thy brother man.
