' * Hoi Water Bemedy for Bailor Smut. The hot water treatment for eradiat ing barley smut has been found effective by the University of Wisconsin Agricul tural Experiment Station.

FLEECING THE FLEECERS. By St. Legcr Cheyue. When Cameron had filled his pipe lie tossed the empty tobacco tin to the far corner of the room, and straddling a chair, lit UP nonchalantly. ' We have come to the end of our luxuries,' he said in his usual cheery tones, 'so look out for squalls. My temper is bound to become erratic now.' I said nothing but drummed on the little deal table before me, marvelling that our reverses could not eyen tem porarily obscure_ the sunny bright ness of his disposition. We had said good-bye the previous evening to the necessities of life without the slight est idea when the acquaintanceship would be renewed; and now our last luuiry had petered out with that final pipe of tobacco. Cameron almost irritated me as he sat there thoroughly CDJoying every whiff of smoke he sent out upon the humid atmosphere. Yet my only hope was in him, for despite his mild blue eyes, an-*. simple, almost vacuous smile, he possessed the wisdom of the serpent — a 'wisdom, howev...
