Hie is making a tour of the West with the object of getting samples of grain for the use of the departmeat. In conversation with an Albertan reporter yesterday he stated that ho had just returned from a trip to southern Alberta, where iie bought four car-loads of grain. "In Winnipeg" he said, "we have a big war^ouse where a dp�n men are employed all the time in aortinf and packing grain, and sending it out to the different agents of the Dominion in Great Britain and the United SUtes. These affsnta are obliged to have up-to-date samples in order to do business ahd we keep them constantly supplied." "But talking about the south country," he went on, "let me tell you a remarkable thing that came under my notice when I was there a few days �gD. At liethbridge there is a big farm of 2,200 acres, known as the Silver Farm, owned by Daniels & Co. Two years ago it yielded a big crop, but it was sumnier-faUow -ed last year, and cattle mre grazing upon it. This spring the cattle were turned out on the ranges, as is us -ually the case. Not long afterwards tiny shoots began to appear. and presently it became evident that there was going to be a crop o^ wheat. When I was there they were thrashing the wheat and it was .yield in'{ 16 bushels to the acre. Just think of that I Sixteen bushels an acre from a volunteer crop!" "What about the general crop in the south country?" asked tho re -porter. "Magnificent!" said Mr. Poison. "At Cardston the fall wheat will pan out at about 40 bushels and I fully,expect iW from the springwheot. "In tha Cardston district they havo some splendid barley. It is the talk of tho country. Experts say it cannot be beaten anywhere.' "But how those places along the south line have grown! Why, when I was> in Lethhridge four years ago there was hardly a farm uwlor cultivation.

He was unsparing of himself and played for all he was north all the timo. al -ways having an eye ojK-n for any advantage that might bo gained without pla.ving for it.

Sir Garrel Barnes, president of tbe divorce court, London, Eng., saya: "If this drink habit, which is unfortunately so prevalent, could be erwd-icatod from the nation, this court might shut its doora for the greater part of the time. The majority of coses that come to this court are due to drink." Edvand W. Bok, editor ot the I.^dios' Home Journal, gives the following as ope of Che reasons for having never tasted liquor: "Evidence was presented recently in the pro-iMte court of Des Moines, la., of an act which changes tho ownership oi an estate. A wealthy citiaen ot Des Moines made a will bequeathing one of his farms, said to be worth 1(4 ,- 000 and a legacy of $19,000 in cash, to a citissen of Bethlehem. N.Y., who married a relative ot the testator. The one condition attached to tho be-qu?�t wras tliat the lieneficiary should continue sober for a siiecifled time. The time was approaching for a sot-tiement of the estate, and the executors were preparing to instal the legatee and pay over the legacy when news reached him that he had indulged in a protracted drunk. An investigation was made, and the news was confirmed. .They accordinglylald before the surrogate court the evi -donee of forfeiture and the bequest was declared cancelled." The custpm ot producing dwarfed dogs in Paris by feeding puppies alcoholized milk, throws a lurid light upon the following statement: "An eminent doctor in New York city found over 70 per cent, ot the children of drinking parcMa alBletMwlth organic or nervous diseaaea ia a large number examined." Gipsy Sihith tells us, one day. {when he was waiting at a station he salt down twside a commercial traveller and thty fell into c^oVeraa-tion. The man's breatk waa heavy with Ikiuor and he said: "Yea, I would like to live a deoifA life, but 1 can't; I must have a drink. I've got a lovely wife and obiMrMi and v.iant to quit the stuff. I've tried and I can't. You see I was bom half drunk. My father aad mother wera lioUi drinkers, and I never had a chance." ' , aepttle ia 1909. When Cormack made the firat dis  co\�ry of tha Klondike on August l(Hh, 1896, he had Just come from Eldorado Creek, the richest in Yukon Territory.

They had no tools either, but meeting a ' Swede, who was well supplied made him an offer. The Swede kneui the value of tools aad time Just then, and held out a high price. He finally got four ounces of gold (sixty-five dollars, tor his pick. Whipple and his frkmOs then went to Eldorado and started to dig through the frozen mould. Tho sec -ond day on the upper side of the creek they uncovered tho richest bit of placer ground-that the world has seen for years.
