eased off. Reports of too much rain
in the central belt imparted a relative-

fense for a person to violate a state
law prohibiting shipments of game out-

The decision of the court of appeals,

Good Law That Should Be Enforced.
Anti-spitting ordinances, laws and
regulations in more than five-eighths
of the cities and towns of the country
are not enforced as they should be,
alleges the National Association for
the Study of Tuberculosis in a recent
report. While most of the larger cities
of the United States have such laws
on their books, in the great majority
of cases they are ignored or over-
looked. The report covers in detail
the enforcement of the anti-spitting
ordinances in 80 of the largest cities
in the country. During the year 1909
In these 80 cities, 3,421 arrests were
made for violation of the laws regard-
ing spitting in public places. Over
2,900 convictions were secured aud

The Response Mechanical.
It is the custom in convents for the
nuns to respond to a knock at the door
with the words: "In the name of God,'
the phrase being equivalent In con
ventional parlance to our worldly
"enter" or "come In."
In a convent in one of the western
cities not long since, the mother supe-
rior had a never-to-be-forgotten expe^
rience as a result of this custom. Some
one In the outer world called the con
vent telephone number by mistake.
The mother Bupertor, roused from her
meditations, picked up the receiver
and responded mechanically: "In the
name of God."
"Madam!" called an Irate masculine
voice at the other end of the wire,
"there is no occasion for you to swear
at me, even if I have made a mistake
in the number. Profane language is
prohibited over the telephone!

"So you are going to marry Mr.
Glimson?" smiles the first fair young
thing. "I was engaged to him last
year. He positively wept when
broke the engagement."
"I know he did," answers the other
beauteous creature. "He told me
that he wept—for joy."
"Why do people use the expression
'Dear sir' so frequently?" asked the
man who was writing a letter.
"I don't know," answered the man
who was figuring on his expenses, "un-
less 'sir' is short for 'sirloin.'"

Where She Scored.

his esteemed father:
"One day a long time ago, a number
of children in our neighborhood were
talking about the bad habits of their

said a little girl, boastfully like.

A dispatch from Winnipeg, Manlto-
ba, dated March 18, 1910 says: That
Germany Is "anxious to secure a share
of Canadian wheat to supply her Im-
ports of that cereal." The recent ad-
justment of the trade relations with
Germany has made it possible to carry
on a Canadian-German trade with
much fewer restrictions than in the
past, and considerable development
of trade between the two Countries
is now certain. The great men of
the United States are alive to the
Wheat situation in this Country now,
and there is consequently the deepest
Interest in every feature that will
tend to increase and conserve the
wheat supply. With its present 650,-
000,000 bushel production of wheat
and all efforts to increase it almost
unavailing, and the rapidly growing
consumption of its increasing popula-
tion, there is certainly the greatest
reason for the anxiety as to where the
wheat is to come from that will feed
the nation. The United States will
be forced as Germany is to look to
the Wlieatflelds of Canada. One
province alone raised last year one-
eighth as much as the entire produc-
tion of the United States, and but a
twelfth of the wheat area has yet been
touched. The Americans who have
gone to Canada, are to-day reaping
the benefit of the demand for Canadi-
an wheat and they will continue to
join in the benefits thus reached for
a great many years. Splendid yields
are reported from the farms of that
Country, and from land that the Gov-
ernment gives away in 160 acre
blocks, and from other lands that
have been purchased at from $12 to
$15 an acre. John Munter, near Eye-
brow, Saskatchewan, a former resi-
dent of Minnesota says:
"Last fall got over 30 bushels of
wheat to the acre and had 30 acres of
It; also 20 acres spring breaking on
which I had flax of which I got almost
20 bushels per acre. Had 20 acres
in oats and got 70 bushels per acre
and 500 bushels potatoes on one and
three quarter acre, and can therefore
safely say that I had a fine crop and
am well satisfied with my homestead."
