This Is the time of year when con Iderable anxiety la felt In all the northern agricultural districts as to the probable outcome of the growing crops. Central Canada, comprising the Provinces of Manitoba, Sas katchewan and Alberta, with their li.000,000 acres of wheat, oats, bar ley and flax, of which 6,000,000 acres may be said to be sown to wheat alone, has become a great fac tor In the grain markets of the world. Besides this, government returns show that every state In the Union has representatives In these prov inces, and naturally the friends of these representatives are anxious to hear of their success. It has never been said of that country that It Is absolutely faultless. There are, and have been, districts that have experi enced the vagaries of the weather, the same as in districts south of the boundary line between the two coun tries, but these are o...

Both vessels were In dangerous proximity to the ice and reported that one of the bergs' Was more than 1,000 feet long and stood 50 feet out of the water. Memories of the Titanic made the passengers uncomfortable until they reached port. The Mauretanla came on a big berg while running through a fog. Speed had been reduced to the lowest pos sible notch for the big liner. Capt. Turner and his first officer were on the bridge, while the force of lookouts had been trebled. The vessel slipped out of the fog just before it reached the Iceberg, which was a quarter of a mile ahead and directly in its course. ' The Mauretanla was brought to a stop because of the...

To properly understand the effect of any implement on the moisture conteut of the soil It Is necessary that we understand the way water acts. The kind of soil water which Is ot most Importance to a farmer Is what Is sometimes called capillary water. This capillary water is what is com ing up from lower levels in the soil all the time to the surface. The ac tion of this water Is seen when dry sand or earth Is put in a small basin of water so that the soil is away above the vessel containing It. If there is enough water in the basin it would saturate the soli to the very top, much in the same way as a sponge would absorb the water, or a lamp wick acts in conveying the oil from the bowl of the lamp to the end that is lighted. The finer the soil particles are the more water they will retain and hold as a film aro...
