some twelve acres of land Just below

play of horticultural products as any
In Manitoba. The whole of his hold-
ing ia in a high state of cultivation
and literally crowded with splendid
vegetable specimens, which have for-
tunately escaped damage by hail, al-
though heavy storms have more than
once occurred within a few miles. The
potatoes are a wonderful crop, and he
expecta to raise 1,500 bushels from
his patch of 4'/g acres. A half dozen
of tubers selected yesterday average

the potatoes may be seen a marvelous
collection of tomatoes. There are 600
plants, all growing under an enor-
mous weight of fruit. One single
stock picked yesterday contained
eighteen tomatoes and weighed four
pounda. This extraordinary example
of marvelous growth, together with
some of the -potatoes were sent to the
Free Press office.
The proprietor was the first In
town with several specimens, Includ-
ing green corn. The season has been
favorable for onions, and one square
patch of nearly an acre Is looking re-
markably healthy. In addition there
are good crops of cabbages, cauliflow-
er. turnips, parsnips, carrots, pump-
kins, marrows, cucumbers, celery, peas,
lettuce, rhubarb, etc. The floral de-
partment has not been neglected and
*' charming display of all the well
known blooms were shown, Including
a specially choice lot of asters.

his gardening experience in England.

for vegetable raising, and is gratified
with the result of his first attempt at

law on each count being $1,000 and
