Frederick A. Cook; the. Arctic explor- e jarrived here today -from Buffalo, and will leave this afternoon for At- lantic City. Cook said to the Asso- ciated Press today: "There is a mistaken impression among the public that I aiu bringing the Eskimos to New York to prove tfhat I have: been to the pole. The real reason of their coming here is to disprove the story they Svere made to tell by Commancfer Peary, and his party. They certainly will assist me by giving evidence that they "have been to the Pole with me, but I rely my own data to prove my claim."

He had suffered so long with his Kidneys, and spent so much money ott doctors without relict, that he nad made up his mind he could jot be cured..; Then, he chanced to read about the wonderful cures by Gin Pills, the great Kidney Remedy, and sent for a sample. The pills did him so much good that be immediately bought two full size boxes. And these two. boxes of Gin Pills made biui feel like another mart; But let-Mr. Fitzgerald tell his own story of a really remarkable cure. Provincial Asylum, OriHia June 18th.

It is found that the smaller, trees cost less for express and are set out with less expense' to the farmer than those which are larger, and are more successful in the end. s I One farmer went to the express of- i fice with a hay rack to haul home trees, but he found he could haul them home in his covered buggy the trees weighed 900 pounds. Cultivation starts as soon after the tree's are planted and is continued first week in August. Con- tinuing growth too late in the season keeps the sap in 'the trees and does not allow for" ripening up of the tree before the frost comes. A tree 15 inches high when set out grows about two feet in the first year, and about three feet each year after. These trees are always set out in their permanent location so they 'do not need to be transplanted. Proper cultivation will ensure plenty of moisture, so the roots will penetrate downwards rather than along the surface. The forestry department do not approve of mulching trees for. mulched trees will not make more than six or seven inches growth a year, where they should make two to three feet each year under proper cultivation. Trees are doing well, both with and without irrigation. But -where .there is no irrigation they are apt to receive better cultivation.

I still keep a box of Gin Pills on, band and take one occasionally. I am pleased to recommend them and bear testimony to their efficacy. P. FITZGERALD.

The agreement which the farmer signs still contains a clause which was inserted some years ago when the department had only 15 acres at Indian Head. This clause gives the department the privilege of taking cuttings or seeds after the farmer has himself taken all he needs to ex- tend his own plantation. But up to the present the department has never j taken advantage of this clause in j single case.
