Of Interest to the Farmer "JIAYSKF.P" AND ' DI'DKS" (The Canadian Courier). Principal Creel man of the Ontario Agricultural College tvntl the Toronto Canadian Club a lecture on Monday last, the echo of which will travel some distance.

There ore many |ietty jealousies in Canada and in so for as this it both in front and rear. The town and tho country have each a part to play la the economy of nation-making. Tlw chief difference hot ween the farmer and the city man Is the condition of their boots. Tho farmer objects to blacking; the city man is fas tidious in its use. If Principal Crool-nion could work a change in 'this row-poet he would undoubtedly bring tho two classes nenrer logotlier. A farm or with a pair of well.polished boots could move anywhere in a great city without being conspicuous, since now a-duys his clothes ore usuully passable.
