FALL WHEAT RAISING IN
The Spring Wheat Ar as Are Rapidly
It is only a few short years since
the impression prevailed that a large
portion of the Canadian West was un-
fltted for agriculture. To such an
extent did this impression prevail
that districts larger than European
principalities were devoted solely to ^
ranc'iin^ purposes, and flocks and
herds roamed the ranges. But the
agriculturist was doing some hard
thinking, and gradually experiments
were made, slowly at first, but sure-
ly later on. As a result, to-day in
Southern Alberta, which was looked
upon as the "arid belt," large quanti- I
ties of the finest winter wheat in the i
world are now grown, and so satis- !
fied are the farmers and buyers that
the industry has passed the experi-
mental stage that elevators by the
score have been erected in the past
two years and others in course of
erection, to satisfy the demands that j
will be made upon them in the near |
Manitoba, "No. 1, Hard" spring j
wheat has achieved a world-wide I
reputation, and there can be no ques-
tion that ere long "No. 1 Hard" win-
ter whent from Alberta will attain
similar repute. The great market for
this production will undoubtedly be
the Orient, and, with increased rail-
way facilities and the erection of ad-
ditional elevators and flouring mills,
a largely increased acreage will be
broken to winter wheat. The increase j
of population in Southern Alberta in j
the past year has been largely due
to settlers from the United States j
who have brought in capital and en-
terprise, and who have been uniform-
ly successful in their undertakings, j
A few more such yeans of growth and
"Turkey Red" winter wheat will
wave from Moose Jaw to the foothills.
Information regarding lands in the
Fall and Spring wheat belts may be i
obtained of any Canadian Government j
Matter of Choice
At a bachelor's club dinner in New
York Jerome K. Jerome expressed the
belief that dread of parents-in-law
kept many a man from marrying. He
said he admired the pluck of a young
friend of his who recently spoke up
to his sweetheart's • father. This
crusty old gentleman, when the youth
asked for the young girl's hand, said
with a sneer: "You want to marry i
my daughter, do you? Let me tell
you that you are not exactly the sort j-
of man I would choose for a son-tn-
law." The youth nodded. "Well, to
be frank," he said, "you are not the
sort of man I'd choose for a father-in-
law, either. But we uedn't chum up, ;
you know, unless we want to."

Every houseiteeper snouia Know tnai
If they will buy Defiance Cold Water
Starch for laundry use they will save
not only time, because it never sticks
to the iron, but because each package
contains 16 oz —one full pound—while
all other Cold Water Starches are put
up in %-pound packages, and the price
Is the same, 10 cents. Then again
because Defiance Starch is free from
all injurious chemicals. If your grocer
tries to sell you a 12-oz. package it
is because he has a stock on hand
which he wishes to dispose of before
he puts in Defiance. He knows that
Defiance Starch has printed on every
package in large letters and figures
"16 ozs." Demand Defiance and save
much time and money and the annoy-
ance of the iron sticking. Deflaaca

CHARGES AGAINST BURWELL
In Ueo For Over 30 Years.

It Is Alleged That He Did Things For-
bidden by Law
GUTHRIE; Great secrecy has been
maintained in regard to the charges
recently filed against Associate Jus-
tice B. F. Burwell, whose name was
sent to the senate with those of Chief
Justice Burford and Associate Justice
Hainer, but failed of confirmation
with them. It is now said, However,
that the two serious charges against
Burwell were that he had solicited
transportation from railroads, whicn
is expressly forbidden, and that he
had used his office as a collection
agency for his clerk, holding up final
action in certain cases until the Tc<.-a
were paid. Thes charges are sup-
posed to be the ones whicTi have held
up his cohtirmation. Rumors are
afloat, which seemed to be disquiet-
ing to some of th politicians, to the
effect that Burford had really not
been confirmed, but the source of the
rumor could not be discovered, and
nothing could be found to discredit

Dear Mrs. Pinkham:— (First Letter.)
"In looking over your book I see that your
medicine cures Tumors. I have been to a
doctor and he tells me I have a tumor. I
will be more than grnteful if you can help
me, as I do so dread au operation."—Fannie
D. Fox, Bradford, Pa.
Dear Mrs. Pinkham(Second Letter.)
" I take the liberty to congratulate you on
the success I have had with your wonderful
"Eighteen months ago my periods
stopped. Shortly after I felt so badly I sub-
mitted to a thorough examination by a phy-
sician, and was told that I had a tumor
and would have to undergo an operation.
" I soon after read one of your advertise-
ments and decided to give Lydia E. Pink-
ham' s Vegetable Compound a trial. After
*aking five bottles as directed, the tumor is
by the physician and he says I have no signs
of a tumor now. It has also brought my
periods around once more; and I am
entirely well. I shall never be without a bot-
tle of Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
in the house."—Faimie D. Fox, Bradford, Pa.
Another Case of Tumor Cured
by Lydia E. Piukliuiu's Vegeta-
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—
41 About three years apjo I had intense pain
in my stomach, with cramps and raging
headaches. The doctor prescribed for me,
but finding that I did not get any better he
examined me and, to my surprise, declared
i had a tumor.
44I felt sure that it meant my d«ath warrant,
and was very disheartened, i spent hundreds
of dollars in doctoring, but. the tumor kept
growing, till the doctor said that nothing but
an operation would stive me. Fortunately I
corresponded with my aunt in one of the New
England States,who advised me to try Lydia
E. Pinkhain'aVegetableCompound beforesub-
mitting to an operation, ana I at once started
taking a regular treatment, finding to my
great relief that my general health began to
improve, and after three months 1 noticed
that the tumor had reduced in size. I kent
on taking the ComjKDund, and in ten months
it had entirely disappeared without an oper-
ation, and using no medicine but Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and words
fail to express how grateful I am for the good
it has done me."—Miss Luclla Adams, Colon-

TROUBLES OF HER OWN
Iowa Insurance Companies Are Ac-
cused of Crookedrvess
DES MOINES, IA.: Violations of
law, extravagance, crookedness and
graft were embodied in charges made
by Senator Molsberry in the Iowa
senate against life Insurance com-
panies of Iowa. Senator Molsberry's
remarks were occasioned by the call-
ing up of his resolution for the in-
vestigation of such companies doing
business in the state. The Des Moines
Life pays its president $12,000 per an-
num and the wife of the president
$0,000 per annum," declared Mr. Mols-
berry. "The same company pays sal-
aries to officers and employes to the
amount of $5,000 and that on a ledger
assets of less than a million and one
half dollars. If McCurdy, >IcCall and
Alexander had known what salaries
were paid the Des Moines Life officials
they would certainly have been sorry
that they were not operating in Iowa."
One life insurance company with
home office in Des Moines one year
wrote $83,000 for which not one cent
of premium was collected
"Nails are a mighty good thing
—particularly finger nails—but I
don't believe they were intended sole-
ly for scratching, though I used mine
largely for that purpose for several
years. I was sorely affected and had
It to do. One application of Hunt's
Cure, however, relieved my itch and
t less than a box cured me entirely."
