Acres Of Cucumbers That is Way They Are Grown in East Kildcman, Near Winnipeg Man Expects 75 Tons The Winnipeg Free Press of a re- c.m date had the following: you ever see a ten-acre field of cucumbers with the vines growing so profusely that the ground was con- cealed by the mass of leaves, the only relief to the mass of vivid green be- ing the yellow glare of a new blown blossom or the golden be'ly ot n ripoii ed fruit-1 Such a iield was inspect- ed recently by Controlled T.

The ten acre plot of ground on which Aid. Midwinter is reaping a cucumber harvest is of amazing fer- tility, the alluvial soil deep and ad- mirably suited to market gardening. The field is surrounded by groves of unusually large trees covered with dense foliage. Cucumber harvest has already be- gun and before the season is over Aid. Midwinter expects to gather 75 tons of the succulent fruit, which is much in demand, served sliced, at fancy prices, in city restaurants. The cucumbers are picked by G-ali- cian women, -who give excellent ser- vice in this respect and good wages are paid to them. The cucumbers are to local pickle factories and Aid. Midwinters 75 tons are but a baggatelie, as the demand is much greater than the whole local sup- meets you your work in half the time if you follow directions.

The dis- covery of the Pole, Chisholm said, was not of great scientific importance1 but it was of course a wonderful achievement and .an honor for which explorers have been striving for cen- turies. "I believe Dr. Cook has reached the North Pole." Thus spoke Prof. Louis A. Bauer, of the Carnegie In- stitution, "Washington, D. C., one of America's leading scientists, and a close personal friend of the'intrepid explorer. There is probably no man alive who knows more about Dr. Cook's work and plans for the j expedition which he has just termin- ated so successfully than Professor Bauer. Dr. Cook dined with the Professor at his home on May j 1907. His achievement wiJl un'ques- j tionably be attended with the most j valuable results to science. Dr. Cook is not a more daring r-xplorer i than he is a scientist.
