AGO HE HAD LESS

PLAN FOR CONSTRUCTING
Hr i NOW ONE OF THE RICHEST
, ?RS IN SASKATCHEWAN,
Arriving In Canada In 1891, just
eighteen years ago, E. A. GuiUomln
could speak but his native language.
Ho is a Frenchman. He had but
a little over two dollars in his pocket,
thus being short over seven dollars of
the ten dollars required to socure en-
try for a homestead of one hundred
and: sixty acres. He eventually bor- J
rowed the money and near Forget, j
Saskatchewan, he started life In Can-1
ada on the homestead In which to-day j
lie is the fortunate possessor of fifty
quarter sections of land, or 8,000 acres.
Now Mr. Gulllomln did not acquire ‘
all these acres as a result altogether of :
Ills farming operations, which wore
extensive. He looked with satlsfac- !
tlon upon what ho was doing on his
limited aron, he was saving, careful,
and had foresight. Surrounding land
could be had for about 111.00 per acre,
and he continued buying as his sav-
ings would permit, until now he has
fifty quarter sections, some of which
he can sell at $25.00 per acre.
Threshed Fifty Thousand Bushels.
This year he was engaged In thresh-
ing on his place for 5414 days. He
thrtesbed out 50,000 bushels of wheat,
of which he sold 114,000 bushels, one
train lond, at a price varying from 84
to 87 cents per bushel. Ho has on
hand still 16,000 bushels. In addition
to wheat he raised 30,000 bushels of
oats, 7,000 bushels of barley and 500
bushels of flax. He owns 104 horses
and a number of cattle, but since the
construction of the railway he has
been engaged chlofly In raising wheat.
This year ho bought Ills first thresh-
ing machine, pnylng for It tho Bum
of $2,100. He estimates that tho ma-
chine earned for him this fall $3,000,
Illustrations and Detailed Instructions for the
of Barn, Well Adapted to Needs
The accompanying illustrations show
two barns constructed with self-sup-
porting roofs. In Fig. 2 Is shown two
methods of bracing a "-mail, self-sup-
porting roof, that would In our opin-
ion be suitable for a building of this
width, writes J. E. Bridgman in Farm-
ers' Review. Either method may be
used with safety. The braces are
nailed on both sides of the rafters and
as will be seen the sizes of all tim-
bers are given. No rods are neces-
sary. The two braces marked "A-A,”
as shown in our correspondent's plan,
may be eliminated, as they would
only be In the way. Bolts would do
no harm, but would do very little
good, as they work loose in a very
short time. The joints should be

In tho two months which wero spent
In this work. The wheat averaged 23
bushels to the acre and graded No. 1
and No. 2 Northern. In tae past nine
years seven good crops have been har-
vested on tliis farm. For six succes-
sive years the returns were excellent,
that is in the years 1901, 1902, i903,
1904, 1905 and 1906. In the two fol-
lowing years there was a partial fail-
ure: As the years have passed the
quality of the buildings on the farm
have been steadily Improved, and are
now as good as can be found In tho
district. About $10,000 has been in-
vested In this way by Mr. Gulllomln.
Thq farm consists of 6,880 acres, of
which about 6,000 acres were under
crop this season.
Her Idea of Discipline.

opening of the Baltimore schools, the
teacher of a primary class had occa

space Is over four feet long.
As to the 'hrust of the rafters on
weigh practically eight pounds per
square foot; the snow load would be
about 10 pounds and the wind pres-
sure about 15 pouuds in a heavy wind
storm. This give, a total weight of
33 pounds per square foot. The raft-
ers are 16 feet long, which gives us a
load of 528 pounds per running foot to
be carried by the plates. One-fourth
of this load, however, will be carried
by the upper plate. The main roof
timbers would weigh practically 11
pounds per square foot. The wind
pressure could be fixed at 18 pounds
per foot and the snow load 10 pounds,
which gives us a total of 39 pounds
per square foot. The rafters on the
main roof are 24 feet long, giving us
a total load of 936 pounds. To this
must be added one-fourth of the
weight of the shed roof, 132 pounds,
and we have 1,068 pounds per running
foot, that must be carried by the
plates of the main barn. This, it will
be understood, is during a storm

LESSON TEXT -Matt. 6:1-15. Memory
GOLDEN TEXT.—"Take heeil that ye
do not your righteousness betore men, to
he seen by them."—6:1. (R. V.)
TIME.— The summer of A. D. 28, near
the middle of Christ's ministry.
PLACE.—1Tho traditional site Is the
Horns of Hattln. two or three miles west
of the Sea of Galilee.
Suggestion and Practical Thought.
The lesson to-day dwells on sin-
cerity and truth applied to giving and
I. Sincerity versus Hypocrisy In
Giving.—Vs. 1-4. First, the Principle,
underlying the actions referred to Is,
that so far as relates to virtue or
character in the doer, it is the motive
that determines the value of an ac-
tion, no matter how good the action
la itself, or how Important the gift
may be to the receiver.
Second. Its Application to Giving.
I. "Take heed,” emphatic because
what follows is very Important. "That
ye do not your alms." R. V., accord-
ing to the best MSS., "your righteous-
ness,"- your good actions both moral
and religious, "before men" for the
purpose or design to be seen of them,
to gain applause. In order to be re-
garded as righteous and generous.
II. Sincerity versus Hyprocrlsy in
Praying.—Vs 5-8. "Thou shalt not be
as the hypocrites are," who do not
really pray, do not desire or expect
what they ask, or hold couttuunioi
with God; but desire to appear very
religious to men, and hence stand
apart like the Pharisee, in the para-
ble, as if absorbed in devotion.
HI. A Form of Prayer Filled with
the Spirit.—Vs. 9-15. The Lord’s Pray
er as given in Luke, perhaps on an
other occasion, is prefaced by a re
quest from the disciples that JeBus
| would teach them how to pray.
1. We need to learn how to pray, if
i we would gain tho most possible from
j prayer. “Let the soli be tilled that
I the germ may grow.
2. Jesus gave a model, expressing
, the true principles of prayer.
3. A model or form is useful only
j when filled with the real Spirit of
4. We can interpret the model by
the way Jesus and his disciples used
it. We have no recorded Instance of
their using this prayer, but the pray-
ers of Jesus were in accordance with
The Hearer and Answerer ot Praper.
'Our Father which art in Heaven."
This expresses that aspect of God
which most attracts us to pray to him.
He Is not a mere “bright Essence ln-
create," a “power that makes for
righteousness, but a Person, as really
as our spirits are persons; infinite,
omnipotent, omniscient. King, Creator,
Ruler, but withal a Father whose qual-
ities we learn from his Son, our Elder
The Chief Aim and Goal of Prayer

and for the whole human race. "Eye

ports, “day by day," our daily bread

Prayer for Deliverance from Evil.—
Simple Remedy That Anyone Can Pre-
pare at Home.
Most people are more or less sub-
ject to coughs and colds. A simple
remedy that will break up a cold
quickly and cure any cough that Is
curable is made by mixing two ounces
of Glycerine, a half-ounce of Virgin
Oil of Pine compound pure and eight
ounces of pure Whisky. You can get
these in any good drug store and eas-
ily mix them in a large bottle. The
mixture is highly recommended by
the Leach Chemical Co. of Cincinnati,
who prepare the genuine Virgin Oil of
Pine compound pure for dispensing.
Percy Parkington rose and brushed
the dust from his knees. Then, draw-
ing himself up to his full height, he
gazed resentfully upon the form of
Miss Muriel Muggins, who nonchalant-
ly fanned herself the while.
“Very well, Miss Muggins,” came in
bitter tones from Percy. “Oh, very
well! You have spurned me, it is
true! indeed, you have spurned me
twice! But, though despair eats my
hoart, I shall not die! 1 mean to go
into the busy world. I will fight! I
will win! My name shall become
known, and my riches shall become

Muggins, “but when you shall have

(By MISS M. CHANDLER.)
After successfully raising turkeys
for a number of years I am able to
give n few practical and useful hints
on the subject which cannot fail to be
of great benefit to the new beginner
or perhaps to the ones who have been
trying to raise turkeys with hut poor
Turkeys, as we all know, are con-
sidered more difficult to raise than are
chickens, on account of their being
| more sensitive to the damp and cold
of spring, und for this reason many do
not try to raise them at all.
I find that if turkeys are not hatched
before May 1 It Is less trouble to care
for them and they are more apt to
It pays best to start with a small
flock. Never keep over winter more
than three hens nnd a gobbler. Right
here let me soy, be sure to get your
gobbler and hens of different flocks in
starting, and It you have your own
trade with some one, so that they will
not be related to the hens.
Inbreeding is the cause very fre-
| quently of blindness. 1 have seen in-
j quirles in many farm papers as to the
1 probable cause of blindness, and ex-
perience has taught me that this Is
the sole cause.
It Is unwise to set the old turkey
I the first time she gets broody, but
j break her up to lay more eggs and
| set a ben or two In her place.
When a hen Is set. never use more
than eight or ten eggs, and oven then
select a large hen.
Give her a warm place to sit and
saturate the nest well with sulphur to
keep away vermtn. Use sulphur on
the hen also.
A hen that Is to sit for rcur weeks
jauit be well fed and cared for. Give
at least twelve hours.
Warm, waterproof coops should be
provided for them. Large dry goods
boxes, such as can be bought for about
25 cents, make excellent coops.
Turn them on their side, with blocks
under the corner to keep them off the
ground. Natl strlpB of board over
every crack. The top of the box forms
the front of the coop. Nall lath across
the front so close together that the
little ones cannot crawl through, and
make a little door through which to
feed and water them at one end.
I feed them on bread and milk for
a few days and then give them corn-
meal wet with sweet milk and a pinch
of salt and some clean sand.
Dutch cheese is also good for a
change. They are very fond of it and
it aids digestion. Give them plenty
of water, but do not leave it where
they can tumble Into It, as a good
wetting is most certain to be the death
of a little turkey.
When they ate a few days old I
take off a lath from the front of the
coop and let them run out after the
dew Is off. If the nights are chilly or
the weather should be damp, cover the
coop well with a warm blanket.
The last year I raised turkeys I
learned something very helpful. I put
the coop under a large tree, where
there was shade in the afternoon and
found that the little “turks” never left
the Bhade and did not run off into the
grass and weeds and get lost, as they
had formerly done. They cannot en-
dure the hot sun.

:<The Blood is The Life 9
Science has never gone beyond the above simple
statement of scripture. But it has illuminated that
statement and given it a meaning ever broadening
with the increasing breadth of knowledge. When
the blood is “ bad ” or impure it is not alone the
body which suffers through disease. The brain is
also clouded, the mind and judgement are effected,
and many an evil deed or impure thought may be .
directly traced to the impurity of the blood.
Foul, Impure blood cart be made pure by the
use of Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery,
It enriches and purifies the blood thereby
curing, pimples, blotches, eruptions and other cutaneous affec-
tions, as eczema, tetter, or salt-rheum, hives and other manifes-
tations of Impure blood.
In the cure of scrofulous swellings, enlarged glands, open eating
ulcers, or old sores, the “ Golden Medical Discovery ” has per-
formed the most marvelous cures. In cases of old sores, or open
eating ulcers, it is well to apply to the open sores Dr. Pierce’s All-
Healing Salve, which possesses wonderful healing potency when
used as an application to the sores in conjunction with the use of
“Golden Medical Discovery” as a blood cleansing constitutional
treatment. If your druggist don’t happen to have the “All-Heal-
ing Salve” in stock, you can easily procure it by inclosing fifty
cents in postage stamps to Dr. R.V. Pierce, 663 Main St., Buffalo,
N. Y., and it will come to you by return post. Most druggists
keep it as well as the “ Golden Medical Discovery.”
You can’t afford to accept any medicine of unhsonvn composition at a tub-
etitute lor ‘‘Golden Medical Discovery,” which is a medicine of known com-
position, having a complete list ot ingredients in plain English on ita bottle-
wrapper, the tame being attested as correct under oath.
Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets regulate and invigorate stomach, liver and bowels.
