'No," said Mr. Craig, "not one. Sa

Criminality of Waste.
If I wanted to train a child to be
thrifty I should teach him to abhor
waste. I do not mean waste of
money; that cures Itself, because very
soon there Is no money to waste but
waste of material, waste of something
that Is useful but that you cannot rep
resent In money value to the waster.
Thero Is waste of water, waste of gas
and things of that kind. If you would
wish your children to be thrifty I
would beg to impress upon them tho
criminality of waste. Lord Kosebery,
In au Edinburgh Address.

Girl's Daily Walk of Ten Miles.
Miss Frances Champion of San
Diego, who Is here visiting her brother,
F. It. Champion of locust avenue,
walks ten miles every day for exercise.
She has continued this daily walk for
nearly ten months, and says she would
not give it up for anything. Kain or
shine Miss Champion starts out every
morning at eight o'clock and walks
until II o'clock, in which time she
walks about seven miles. Thin consti

finishes at 3:30.
Miss Champion is the picture of
health. She is live feet tall and
weighs about 130 pounds. She says
that about a 3ear ago her nerves be
came shattered. Willing to do any
thing to regain her health, she decided
to try the walking cure. She began
gradually, walking at first not more
than half a mile. She expeilmented
for two months, increasing the distance
as her health would permit, until she
finally decided to walk ten miles daily.

"To tho Commissioner of Immigra
tion, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Dear Sir:
I, in company with my brother and
other relations, arrived In this coun
try In the spring of 1S93. At the time
we got off the train at Wolselcy, Sask.,
v.e bad only a few dollars, not enough
to start farming on our own account,
ej we were compelled to work out for
a considerable timo in order to make
sufficient money to enable us to es
tablish ourselves. When we thought
wo had enough money to start with, I
and my brother took up one quarter
section (100 acres) land each In the
Loon Creek district. In 1900 we moved
on our homesteads with one team of
horses and one walking plow. While
I was engaged with the work in the
field, my brother built a shack and
barn of logs, which we have hauled
during the time we were not ablo to
work in the field. Wo were certainly
working very hard, but I am glad to
say that we made our fortune In this
country. To day we do not need to
work so hard as we used to, as we
havo three men hired steady for
whom we pay $30.00 to $10.00 a month,
besides board and lodging during the
summer time! I am also glad to tell
you that to-day we are owners of a
section and three-quarters of the best
land, with first class buildings thereon,
besides having nil tho necessary ma
chinery. We always do our own
threshing, for wo have a 22 horse
power threshing outfit.
"Our success in farming in this
country, also enabled us to get rid of a
number of horses of les3 value, and
instead wo bought 10 pure-bred mares,
representing a value In the neighbor
hood of $j,000.
"Regarding raising grain, which 13
tho main factor In our district, I am
proud to say that we have always
had good success. We have raised
wheat as high as 33 bushels to tho
acre; and this year, although we suf
fered from lack of sulllcient rain, our
wheat went 27 bushels to the acre,
and we had 900 acres in crop. We
have broken this year about 100 acres
new land, and by next year wo will
have about 1,110 acres in crop. For
one carload of wheat which we have
shipped a few weeks ago we got a
price of 97 cents per bushel, and it
graded as No. 2 Northern, although wo
have a quantity of wheat which will
surdy go as No. 1 Northern. During
tho six years wo havo been farming
for ourselves we have never had one
frost around here, so that wo always
had a good crop.
"I, for myself, feel compelled to say
that our Great West Is the land where
a person who Is willing to work and
trim his hands to anything, can make
a fortune, and a comfortable living.
Our country is a thoroughly free coun
try, and wo have a good Government;
and, ts long as wo have good crops,
and a good Government, wo are satis
fied, and I think that Is all we want
