THE DUMPER WHEAT CROP OF
100,000,000 Dushela of Wheat from
4,000,000 Acres of Land.
In. order to Becuro tho attention of
tho reader to any special article that
is brought beforo tho public, it is
often tho custom to lead tho reader on
by tho introduction of an interesting
story until by ono bold jump, ho Is
Introduced to tho subject that it is
desired shall bo brought to his notico.
This is not fatr to tho rendar, and it
is not tho intention to do that In this
article It will discuss in tho brief
est way "Western Canada" nnd Its
possibilities for settlement. For tho
past bIx or seven yoars tho Govern
ment of tho Dominion of Canada has
talked of tho resources of Western
Canada to tho readers of this and
thousands of other papers through
out the United States. Tho quality
of tho soil was spoken of, tho largo
nrca of fertile lands was discussed
tho possibilities of tlio country nB a
grain-growing district wero talked of,
and tho story of tho success of farm
ers from tho Unltod States was told.
Tho ntory Is not yet an old ono. Tho
two hundred thousnnd from tho
United States, who havo made West
ern Canada their homo, who havo
taken advantage of tho 160 acres of
land that tho Government gives frco
to actual settlers aro telling tho story
to-dny to their friends. They hav
proven tho statements made through
theso columns nnd by tho Government
Agents, They havo .produced from
their lands, twenty, thirty, forty and
moro bushels of whent to tho acre,
and netted profits ranging from thrco
to ten and moro dollars on every aero
tilled. They havo found tho climate
fully as good as thoy wero told It
would be, schools wero convenient and
easily organized, railways wero not
far distant, nnd markets closo at
hand. Tho social conditions wero
such as they choso to mako them, and
law and order wero obsorvod. Many
of thorn bought land, becauso it was
low-priced and good, and hundreds of
cases could bo cited whoro tho pur
chase prlco of tho land was paid out
of tho first crop. Tho wrltor knows of
cases this year whoro tho farmer, as
a r.esult of tho yield on his farm, was
put In a position tluit would enablo
him to lncrcaso his holdings threo

ono grows enthusiastic when speaking
about Western Cannda.
Hut what may bo said of this year.
Wo aro now In a position to speak re
garding it Tho conditions throughout
Manitoba and tho now provinces of
Alberta and Saskatchewan hnvo been
remarkably favorable. Had condi
tions been no better than in past
years thoro would havo been every
cnuso for congratulation. Wo find
th'jgh all previous records broken,
aud that from a four million mcro
crop of wheat thoro will bo ono hun
dred million bushelB of a yield or
25 bushels to tho acre. Could anything
better bo desired? Covering tho en
tiro country tho snmo splendid reports
aro being received. Tho following
dispatch was sent by Mr. F, W.
Thompson, VIco President of tho
Ogllvlo Milling Co., ono of tho most
careful grnln men in America:
"Havo Just returned from covering
sovoral hundred miles of the crop
dlstilct I nover saw anything llko it
in this country before. Tho nverago
yield and quality far exceeds our
earlier expectations. It is an Im
mense) crop. Tho weather Is oxtremo
Up to thrco wcoks ngo It was Mr.
Thompson's opinion that tho crop
would not reach general expectations.
"F. W. Thompson sends another
telegram from Winnipeg to-night, say
ing that his estimate of tho wheat
crop Is now ono hundred millions
bushels. Beforo ho went west ho
thought It would fall considerably
Bhort of that figure"
Tho moral of this story Is that there
Bhould be no hesitation in mnking a
decision if you wish to better your
condition: or, If you havo a family
of boys that you wish to become set-
tlod on farms, it is a safo proposition
to call upon tho nearest authorized
Canadian Government Agent, nnd get
particulars as to most suitable dis
tricts and railway rates.

AGAINST THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
Overzealous Reformers Work for Law
Against Proprietary Medicines.
"Sohomes to diminish or destroy
tho sale of proprietary mcdlcInoB aro
constantly being devised by Interested
parties. Every now and then some
zealous reformer comes to tho front
with tho demand for n law to rcqiiiro
every package of proprietary medi
cine to bo labeled with a printed
Btntoment of the 'formula,' showing
Just how It is manufactured. The mil
lions of people who use proprietary
medicines scorn to bo satisfied; but
tho man with a mania for regulating
tho affairs of other people or who has
somo personal Interest to serve is
tho ono who ngltntcs tho proposition.
To a porson who has nover taken
tlmo to consldor It, suqli a proposition
may Beom reasonable enough; yet it
is in fact nothing moro nor loss than
a scheme to compel tho manufactur
ers to put their trndo throughout tho
entlro country at the mercy of every
commercial pirate who might choose
to flood tho market with Imltutlons of
"Under such conditions tho Incen
tive for tho original manufacturer to
r advertise his goods would bo practi

on advertising would lnuro mainly to
tho benefit of tho pirates and Imita
tors. Without advertising, tho public
would recslvo llttlo Information In
rcgnrd to the medicine, and all futuro
sales would bo greatly impaired if
not wholly destroyed. It Is mainly by
Judicious advertising that tho knowl
edge of proprietary medicines is
brought to tho public. Nothing 1b
moro certain than that millions of peo
ple havo found relief at a compara
tively small expense by tho use of
somo remedy first called to their
notico through newspaper advertlsfng.
Why, then, should tho manufacturer
of a meritorious proprietary remedy
bo compelled by law to practically
destroy his business as a condition of
bolng allowed to carry it on? Yet
that is exactly what theso formula
