A KNOCKER FROM MICHIGAN Under the heading "Canadian North- west is No the Bad Axe Hur- on Tribune, of Bad Axe, Huron Co., quotes a man, Lewis Hill, who says he speat three months in th'e .Canadian West and who went back to Michigan with nothing good to'say of the country. In order that there may be no chance of miscon- struction of his words, the Herald give' 'undeserved prominence of his words by giving the interview in full, which is as follows "Lewis J., Hill, ex-county truant officer, and a well known Oliver farm- er, returned last week from a three months' prospecting trip to and .through the Canadian Northwest.

Hundreds of reports of better and big gcr yields could be given if it were necessary. i Mr..Hill evidently belongs .to that type of farmer who is so set in his way that- he cannot conceive of pleas- i ant and profitable farming away from trees, snake fences and small farms. Such are of no use to themselves or i the country out here- This country requires people of intelligence who are capable of sizing up new condi- i tions and adapting themselves to them.

This is a step in the right direction, and one which every town and city in the province would do xeli to take.
