Yes! K. is barmlets.-Advertisement (Winnipeg Free Press). Wild rice grows in many parts ot western Canada, and its value as food for wild water-fowl has suggested to many people the possibility of transplanting it to sloughs and streams where it is jiot found. Several parties have gathered seed this year and interest in planting it seems to have been aroused in many parts of the west. It is not ditficult to grow this plant if it he^ property handled. Although wild rice does not grow naturally in every suitable place within its range, in most cases it can be made to do so by transplanting by various tribes ot Indians, and investigations conducted by the bureau ot plant industry have shown that with proper treatment ot the seed the plant may be propagated in any favorable waters in the country. It lias also been successfully grown in Europe. Wild rice thrives best upon a mud �ho'ttom (though it has been known to grow in sand); this may be underlain by various soils, but there should be layer ot mud at least from two to fpur inches deep and preferably deeper. Wild rice usually does not do well where there Is much current or change in the level of the water, although it grows abundantly on tide flats. It must be Temembered that wild rice is not adapted to stagnant water. From four inches to six feet of water are about the limits ot its usual occurrence, and it does best in from one to three feet. In shallow water It may .be Ikilled by heat in summer, so it is best, in southern localities especially, to sow the seed in not less than two feet ot water. The least possible time must intervene between removal from cold storage and sowing. Broadcast sowing answers every purpose, and the seed should be thickly sown, as the growing plants, when near togetlier ,sup-port each other, the^ root anchorage is protected, and a iiiosi auraclive models of thi; ciiUrc- .season on display tomorrow and Saturday in the millinery section, featuring ihc latest and most attractive creations ot the season in wide vuriety of choice as to color.s and styles.
