REACHED THIRTVONE FEET
HE IS NOW ONE OF THE RICHEST
FARMERS IN SASKATCHEWAN,
Arriving In Canada In 1891, just
eighteen years ago, E. A. OulHomln
could speak but bis native language.
He la a Frenchman. He had but
a little over two dollars in hla pocket,
thus being short over seven dollars of
the ten dollars required to secure en-
try for a homestead of one hundred
and sixty acres. He eventually bor-
rowed the money and near Forget.
Saskatchewan, he Btarted life In Can-
ada on the homestead in which to-day
be is the fortunate possessor of fifty
quarter sections of land, or 8,000 acres.
Now Mr. Gulllomin did not acquire
all these acres as a result altogether of
bis fanning operations, which were
extensive. He looked with satisfac-
tion upon what he was doing on his
limited area, he was saving, careful,
and had foresight Surrounding land
could be had for about $3.00 per acre,
and he continued buying as his sav-
ings would permit until now he has
fifty quarter sections, some of which
he can Bell at 92S.OO per acre.
Threshed Fifty Thousand Bushels.
This year he was engaged in thresh-
ing on his place for 54 4 days He
threshed out 50,000 bushels of wheat,
of which he sold 34,000 bushels, one
train load, at a price varying from 84
to 87 cents per bushel. He has on
hand still 16,000 bushels, hi addition
to wheat he raised 30,000 bushels of
oats, 7,000 bushels of barley and 500
bushels of flax. He owns 104 horses
anti a number of cattle, but since the
cofistruction of the railway he has
bebn engaged chiefly in railing wheat
This year, he bought his first thresh-
ing machltift, paying far it the sum
of $2,100. He estimates that the ma-
chine earned for him this fall $3,000,
thus paying for itself in one season
and leaving $900 to the good. The
weather was very propitious for farm
threshing, not a single day being lost
In the two months which were spent
in this work. The wheat averaged 23
bushels to the acre and graded No. 1
and No. 2 Northern. In the past nine
years seven good crops have been har-
vested on this farm. For six succes-
sive years the returns were excellent,
that is In the years 1901, 1902, 1903,
1904, 1905 and 1906. In the two fol- :
lowing years there was a partial fail-
ure. As the years, have passed the
quality of the buildings on the farm
have been steadily improved, and are
now as good as can be found in the
district. About $10,000 has been in-
vested in this way by Mr. Guillomln. \
The farm consists of 6,880 acres, of
which about 6,000 acres were , under
crop this season.

Great Distress Among Poor Who Are
Without Food and Shelter—
Soldiers Guard the City to
DOCTOR'S BEST FCRMULA
One day recently, just after the
Paris.—The flood reached its max-
imum height Saturday, at 31 feet 1
Inch, and has now begun to fall
While the most Imminent peril Is
past, the fail of the Seine Sunday
measured only 15 1-2 Inches. At this
rate It would require a fortnight for
the river to reach its normal level.
Fortunately, tidings from the flooded
sections above Paris give hope of a
more rapid subsidence.
In the meantime the situation In
Paris and In many places throughout
the country shows little Improvement.
Indeed, the ravages of the flood with-
in the city seemed actually to in-
crease Sunday. The water was higher
in some of the streets, while the sit-
uation at the Inundated towns be-
tween Paris and St. Germain was dis-
A stream of water twelve feet deep
was rushing through Gennevlllleret
and Colombej, making the work of res-
cue and succor more difficult than be-
fore. Several houses collapsed, and
many persons were taken off the
rooffs of their homes where they had
bceu clinging for days.
Hundreds are reported without food
or shelter and an army of troops and
civilians are working relentlessly lu
the flooded territory, bringing succor
to the distressed and distribut ng pro
visions by boats to the thousands of
marooned victims, who refused to
quit their homes. Within the city It-
self are great throngs of sightseers.
Although there is n olntentlon on
the part of the government to declare
martial law the completely sub-
merged districts, such as Jajrel, ara
lu the hands of the military to pre-
vent pillaging. The soldiers have or-
ders to make short work of criminals
caught In the act of looting. Thus far
there has been no such cases within
the city, but the danger L* great, as
the french usually keep their money
and valuables In their homes.
Outside of Paris, however, many de-
plorable instances of looting hava
been reported. A band of thieves haa
been at work in the vicinity of Char-
enton, but the soldiers have been
shooting them at sight.
The papers recount many deeds of
heroism on the part of priests at Al-
fortville, who continued the work of
rescue when the soldiers, jackies and
firemen, after several days without
