THE CALL OF THE CANADIAN
The Greatest Wheat Crop of the Con-
The year that has Just closed has
done a great deal toward showing
the possibilities of Western Canada
fiom an agricultural standpoint. The
wheat crop has run very near to the
100,000,000 bushel limit that was look-
ed upon as too sanguine an estimate
only a short time ago, and the area
that has been broken to fall wheat
for the coming harvest will go a long
way towards enabling the farmers of
the West to overlap on the 100,000,000
bushel estimate next year. And while
the spring and winter wheat have
been doing so well during the past few
years, the other cereals have been
keeping up with the procession. Rye
and barley have made Immense
strides, and peas and flax have been
moving steadily along. Dairying,
also, has been successfully carried on
in the new provinces, and in every
stage the farmer has been "striking
it rich.’’ To such an extent has the
success of the West taken hold of the
outsiders that the rush of our Ameri-
cans to Saskatchewan and Alberta,
. which was looked upon ns marvelous
last year, bids fair to be largely ex-
ceeded in 1906, and as there are still
millions of acres of free homesteads
available, which the building of the
new railways will render accessible
to the markets, new wheat lands will
bo opened ere long. Amongst the
first to avail himself of the opportun-
settler. In a large number of Ameri-
ity presented will be the American,
can cities Dominion Government
Agents are located, who are able and
willing to give the latest and best in-
formation in regard to the new dis-
tricts which the railways will open
up, and there will be no abatement of
the rush to the Canadian prairies dur-
ing the coming season. Some time
since a poet in the columns of the
"Toronto Star” had the following
stirring lines, which throb of the
There’s a stir In the air, there's a
thrill through the land,
There's a movement toward the
And the eyes of all men for the mo-
ment are turned
To the country that we love the
For ’tls Canada's day in the world’s
And to this merry toast let us sup:
"Here’s to the land, the young giant
of the North,
Where the prairies are opening up!”
They come from the East, and they
come from the South,
They come o'er the deep rolling
They come, for they know they will
dwell ’neath a flag
That makes all men equal and free.
Then, once more the toast, and let
every man rise
And cheer ere he sips from the cup:
"Here's to the land, the young giant
of the North,
Where the prairies are opening up!”
Many a man has killed htmself by
trying to live up to a record he first
made by accident.

Perhaps the Standard Oil officials
who are showing so much studied and
systematic bashfulness about answer-

are thinking of the shocking prece-

Missourians find out what they are
after. If the officials from a distant
state can come here and successfully
pry into the secret arrangements ot
all the corporations, we may soon
behold the spectacle of forty-five or
more separate investigations going on
here at the same time.

Treating Wrong Disease.
Many times women call on their family
physicians, suffering, as they imagine,
one from dyspepsia, another from heart
disease, another from liver or kidney
disease, another from i rvous exhaustion
or prostration, another with pain hero and
there, and in this way they all present
alike to themselves and their easy-going
and Indifferent, or over-busy doctor, sop-
urate and distinct diseases, for which he,
assuming them to be such, prescribes his
pills and potions. In reality, they are all
only symptoms caused by some uterine
disease. The physician, ignorant of the
muse of suffering, encourages this prac-
tice until large bills are made. The suf-
fering patient gets no better, but probably
worse, by reason of the delay, wrong
treatment and consequent complications.
A proper medicine like Dr. l’ierce’s Fa-
vorite Prescription, directed to the cause
would have entirely removed the disease,
thereby dispelling all thoso distressing
symptoms, and instituting comfort in-
stead of prolonged misery. It has been
well said, that "a disease known is half

How It Often Happens From Coffee.
“I had no idea,” writes a Duluth
man, “that It was the coffee I had
been drinking all my life that was
responsible for the headaches which
were growing upon me, for the dyspep-
sia that no medicines would relieve,
and for the acute nervousness which
unfitted me not only for work but also
for the most ordinary social functions.
"But at last the truth dawned upon
me I forthwith bade the harmful bev-
erage a prompt farewell, ordered in
some Postum and began to use It. The
good effects of the new food drink
were apparent within a very few days.
My headaches grew less frequent,
and decreased in violence, my stom-
ach grew strong and able to digest
my food without distress of any kind,
my nervousness has gone and I ain
able to enjoy life with my neighbors
and sleep soundly o’ nights. My
physical strength and nerve power
have increased so much that I can do
double the work I used to do, aud
feel no undue fatigue afterwards.
"This improvement set in just as
soon as the old coffee poison had so
worked out of my system as to allow
the food elements In the Postum to
get a hold to build me up again. I
Cheerfully testify that it was Postum
and Postum alone that did all this, for
when I began to drink it I ‘threw
physic to the dogs.’ ” Name given by
