Address or. Hartman president of tie sanitarium Columbus o. Of fees Lilii a s Prairies Sre created by the unerring hand of nature. The first division. Chiefly because of the Elevation of the country the absence of Large lakes and Rivers and the operations of the Chinook or Pacific Ocean winds which readily Cross the Rocky mountains in Southern Alberta through gaps and passes the South Western portion of the Canadian provinces is regarded As somewhat arid and less Fertile than other portions of the country. Al though this has been a prevailing idea in tie East it has been left for american settlers who have invaded this District within the past two or three years to prove that splendid crops of Grain can be grown on the land which had hitherto been the feeding the herds of cattle and bands of horses that ranged Here. That ranching is carried on most successfully in other portions of the Prairies West just As agriculture is to a limited extent conducted successfully within taken As a whole it constitutes a Terri strict for wheat so wisc it is not Good for mixed operations Well. It is the cause it is level has a sufficient rain fall every year plenty of Snow in the Winter for moisture in the Early Tpring and favourable climatic conditions the year round that it specially marked for this Branch of husbandry. In. This part of the country wheat King and Here it is raised in the great est possible perfection by a combination of soil and climate in its favor and the tendency has been to neglect the More laborious branches of husbandry for which the country is equally Well adapted. As if to Cope with the offerings of nature the railway companies Are ready ill Lull 1huviuj4 to Iulus inc soon As it is relieved from the Straw in the Fields by the threshers. Throughout this entire Belt there is an enormous length of railway mileage branches Are radiating in every direction from the trunks until they scarcely leave a Grain Field More than six or seven Miles from a Road and they Are All required for in the fall and Early Winter the sight of the trains passing to and from the elevators at the railway depots makes the entire country look like one hive of Industry. Free Homestead lands. There is yet a Large Quantity cd government land for homesteading in this country and As in even thing else the Early Bird catches the those who come first Aie first served. When it is preferred to Purchase railway or other company lands they can be got at from five dollars per acre up. This Section can not be better closed than by show ing practically what is made by wheat growing in this District the average from the first of operations is 20 Flot 0 Prairie As first slowed is called is Odd bits about Korea. R a heed of Canadian shorthorn. No to Coj wit 11w i persons f e Grill show von now to Nuie mo3f the i. Y Voltl. Khat in rcllmw9 have in Borisof Loyal Serrow and Awra Ohio men. Is Turt practice. Imn and Adrice net. W. Vuici a u a f. so34 tory above All others most admirably adapted to this particular Industry. The Buffalo Bunch and other grasses that grow in profusion in this District and retain their nutritive properties tha year round and the moderate climate of mid Vinter rendered such by the Chinook winds preventing any consid Erable depth of Snow at any time especially fit the District for the Peculiar methods of the his herds the year round in the open coun try. While there Are no Large lakes or Rivers in this whole country there Are numerous fast Runn no streams fed the year round by melting snows in the mountains furnishing an abundance of the coolest and purest water tie Best for beast As Well As Man. The country has at once an abundance of the Best of food and drink the year round a Clear sky but Little wet or Stormy weather and a favourable climate the year through. Englishmen and americans in the Terri tones Are bringing in their herds As fast As they can and leasing or purchasing land in lots from 000 acres from the Dominion govern ment. An idea of the growth of the Industry will be gathered from the fact i that in 1s99 there were but head of cattle shipped and sold from the ranches these figures ran to in 1900. And to in 1903, averaging per head for the owners. But it takes a great Many ranchers and a Large number of cattle to cover an area of acres the area available for ranching in the Canadian Northwest. It is not at All necessary that Large in vestments should be made at the outset Many men commenced eth Small Cap ital and Smail herds and have worked themselves into Large herds and great wealth. There is still in the country plenty of room for those who desire to go and do likewise. Second part. The second part of the Canadian Prairies embraces the great wheat grow ing Peiu of you our is Easu a half larger than any other in the world. It includes about acres. As it is comparatively free of broken land Large lakes and Rivers about acres of it can be brought under the plow. Placing a Farmer on every half Section 320 it can comfortably locate Farmers or of an agricultural Community. A glance now i at what the Farmers of the territories Are doing will give a better idea of what can be done in this great wheat growing zone. The territorial government re ports show that in 1903 there were raised bushels of Spring wheat off of acres an average of 19.04 bushels tire off acres of cats there Are grown hush Els i Averite of 32.17 acres produced bushels of of the car and 32431 acres produced bushels of fax seed. 9.03 to the acre. As but acres or Little better than one per cent of the entire wheat growing area of the territories was under crop a Little figuring shows 13 per cent of the entire country under wheat will raise the that great Britain annually re quires from Suttice countries. I it Mast not be supposed for a moment i that while this part of the country is j outlined As the especially Furon ble Dia-1 of course an exceptional expenditure As when it is once done it is done for All time. This costs about ?3.53 per acre. After the breaking plow ing and seeding harvesting threshing and marketing All expenses combined amount to about per acre that is if a Man has everything done it win Cofer my per acre u be does the himself he is earning wages while producing at that Fig ure. Now As the average yield is 20 bushels and the average Price 60 cents per difference Between the result and coot is the profit of Grain growing year in and year out in the great wheat Belt of the Canadian Prairie country. If a Man has a half Section of land and puts half of it 160 acres under wheat which is a very common occurrence he makes on wheat alone and should make if a is a capable Farmer enough out other crops Sale of cattle Dairy and other products to keep himself and family the year round besides. The third division. The third division of this great countr3r lies to the North of the wheat Belt Between it and what is known As the Forest country. As wheat growing implies the raising of All cereals that can profitably be raised in the country the remaining branches of mixed Farning Are Dairy ing and the raising of farm Stock. It must not be supposed that dividing tha Prairies in this Way is saying that any one portion of the country possesses better soil than another for such is not the districts arc equally Fertile but the Topography and climatic influences differ As Well As the conditions for production. Ranching and Grain growing Are car ried on quite successfully in this Northern zone but it is found Mora profitable to Combine All the features of the Industry. On account of the land being More broken than in the Luc equally Fertile there Are not the same opportunities for extensive operations and while cattle raising is As profitable Here As elsewhere different methods have to be adopted for their Protection especially in the Winter season. An authority in the subject has stated that agriculture in any coun try never reaches the minimum of development until the Farmers engage at least proportionately in Dairying though the surroundings must always determine the extent to which any feature of the Industry May be prosecuted. It is certainly then that if the agricultural possibilities of this portion of the Prairie country be Esti mated by its adaptability to Dairy farming even the most sceptical must acknowledge they Are unsurpassed in any country in the world. As inti mated above even Dairying May be successfully earned on in Corner of the territories but this zone has everything to recommend it As the Ideal spot for this Branch of the Busi Ness. The mining districts of British Columbia which consume an immense it of Dairy products Are close at hand and always afford a Good mar Ket for butter cheese pork poultry and interesting customs and habits of Ike people of the land of torning Calm.

Among educated classes seppuku is the Teim to used to designate the act. A vast Aiqouni of misconception pre vails in Europe concerning what is Vul Garly termed the word is never used by any other than illiterate persons in Japan says the London Post. Among the educated classes the to nip pose that the japanese soldiers and sailors Are prone to throw their lives seppuku in ancient clinics "na_3 an honorable death but it was Only resorted to in extreme Circum stances. As the japanese proverb puts it Sei via Sha life is death is for any person to commit suicide merely As a Way out of a difficulty was esteemed and is still a cowardly act. To take ones Lite is easy enough As a Means of procuring Relief from trouble but to live on despite difficulties being a harrier matter is the More creditable and this is t a meaning to be attached to the proverb which has quite As much Force to Ciao among japanese As it Ever had.

Short shift that would be Given to Cap Tives that the Prospect of falling Alire into russian hands came in reality to be regarded As far worse than death. It was the firm belief that barbarous treatment would be meted out to them that led so Many despite the injunction conveyed in the proverb to shoot or sub themselves when capture was inevitable cases of seppuku As a matter of fact were extremely rare and cases of Ordi nary suicide though More frequent were the expression of a wide spread conviction that Only in this Way could an ignominious existence be avoided.
