Sedgcwick, a community in that district of the Western Canadian prairies, known as Central Alberta, is six thousand1 miles distant from Great Britain, but it is the location of a colony of settlers from the Old Country who were attracted to the ready-made farms prepared here by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Most of the farmers under- this scheme are married men, but on one of the farms on this colony arc two bachelor girls (they are too young to be referred to as spinsters). To this farm Mr, H. A. Kenned?, a well known writer, recently paid a visit. "Two young ladies," he say*, "are working in partnership. They find no difficulty in the arrangements though the average farmer out Vhere assure*; you that partnerships are unwork able in such a business.

CHAPTER XIV. From that day the patient was a changed man. All the gentleness was ! gone. He would 110 longer apply him self to study. He spent the entire day in an exhausting and fruitless search after-something. He slept little at night. He tossed and muttered inarticulately, and grew thinner and whiter. The eyes that had been so calm now grew at times wild and vengeful, they would seem to be peering off into space, as if looking for something not within reach. He would stand for minutes at a time, pondering with kriit- brow over some thought that was puzzling his brain, and then would shake his head ami resume, whatever occupa tion he had been engaged upon. If he passed Helen in the hall, or on the stairs, lie would lay his white thin hand 011 her arm, and peer curl oukIV into, her face with such an un utterable longing that she would fre quently burst into tears. He would listen to the conversa tion of those around him,, and would seem to be striving to connect it with something ...

OA HE FOR THK MILK. The following statement, made by Professor 0. P.

The purpose of these essentials is to pre vent or retard bacterial fermenta tions which shorten the life and im pair the Keeping quality and whole someness of milk and its products.
