No Wonder—Renting His
Land Hs Made $8.50
So many Americans now have per- i If
sonal knowledge of Canada that false
reports concerning this country are
being continually corrected by Amer-
icans themselveB who know the facts,
and who are too fair-mlmled to let a
false statement go unchallenged. A
case in point arises out of a statement
supposed to be made by a resident of
Alberta, and published recently in the j
Spokesman-Review, of Spokane, in I
which the condition of settlers in this j
country was painted in a very bad I
way indeed. The writer of this at- j
tack on Canada refused to let his
name be known, so it can be taken
for what it is worth, but Mr. S. L.
Wallace, of N 4723 Crestline, Spokane,
who lived for some year3 in Western
Canada, came to the defense of the
country in the following letter which
w as published in the Spokesman Re-
view of February 11, 1916:—

"In Sunday's Spokesman-Review was
a letter from a man in Alberta to the
chamber of commerce, asking that
something be done to keep Americana
from going to Canada, and saying that
that government was run by the rail-
roads, banks and manufacturers; that
once a man got there he never could
get away. Had this man published
that letter over his own signature
there is no doubt but he could get out
No country will do as much to help
a man to get on his feet, if he tries to

nearest town and 6 per cent. What
more could a man ask?
I lived five years in Southern Sas-
katchewan and earned a patent to 320
acres of as good land aa I ever saw.
I have raised over SO bushels of oats

health I never was better satisfied any-
where. I had my land rented this last
year for one-third. It brought me al-

In Addition to Its Medicinal Virtues,
the Fruit Forms One of the Best
Foundations for Innumerable
Cutting English Trees.
England has 125,000 acres of crown
forests, containing magnificent trees
untouched by the woodman's ax. Now
they are to go. England needs the
lumber and has appealed to Canada
to provide a battalion of axmen. Need-
less to say, Canada has responded
gladly. There is now organizing a
battalion of 1,500 experienced bush-
men, who will wear the khaki, be sub-
ject to military direction and wield
their axes on the ancestral oaks of
the motherland. Soon the music of
their blows will be heard ringing
through the great New forest of Hamp-
shire and Dean forest, in Gloucester-
shire. England must have the wood,
but it is sad to think of these glorious
old trees 'isappearing. Many of the
woodsmen will come from Quebec,
where experts in the craft abound.

For Oiling Machinery.
The operation of oiling machinery,
especially where it is desirable that
the oil should be kept from the hands
and clothing of the operator, has been
devised recently in making use of the
well-known collapsible lead capsules,
so widely used for artists' colors, drug-
gists' products, paste, etc.. In the 1 nit-
ed States. The capsules are provided
with a screw threat! which is screwed
into an adapter, which in turn la
fastened to the part to be lubricated.
The lead capsule and the brass
adapter make a tight joint, and all
that Is necessary is to apply pressure
frim time to time, as desired. When
the grease capsule is emptied, one
merely unscrews It i.nd pets a new
one In Its place. No refilling is neces-
sary, and the pressure of the fingers
Is usually sufficient to force the grease
Into the bearing.

yard and glowering down in their im-
passivity on villagers who pass that
way by day, but who sedulously avoid
It after dark.
In the center of the Garden of Eden,
In the midst of all this ghostly array
of cement creations, is Mr. Dinsmoor s
cabin home, a "log house" built of
stone from native ledges. One of the
two porches is ornamented with ce-
ment beer bottles and Jugs and mugs
as a sort of merry Jibe at Kansas' pro-
hibition laws. One of the many in-
laid tables in the cabin home is a
small one which contains 162 pieces
of wood. Over the door in the living
room is what the old gentleman calls
a wooden sermon. It is the motto.
"Home Is What You Make it."
Outside, as he facetiously explains,
the sweep of his hand taking in the
petrified Garden of Eden, are 130
stone sermons. It took over 43^4
tons, or 130 sacks, of cement to make
them, and the cost so far has been over
$1,000. But even at that Mr. Dinsmoor
declares he is far from being through.
There Is a system to everything about
the place. The garden to the west
represents the creation and fall of
man according to Moses. The front,
or north, represents modern civiliza-
tion, how one animal preys on an-
other down to the little worm. There
are eight cement trees from 30 to 40
feet high lighted with 20 electric
lights. For the grape arbor, flag,
devil and rambling rose to stand on
there are 13 trees from 8 to 20 feet
It all seems to represent a lot of
hard work. But Mr. Dinsmoor is a
philosopher. It wasn't work, he says,
but play. Work, according to his
theory, is doing something you don't
like to do. He worked lor 50 years.
Then he went to playing. He found
when he fed pigs for play they got
fat: If he fed them for profit he fed

Then he got to playing at farming,

mounted in trees re-enforced by gas

crowd gathers outside and gapes at
