for IS 12. to be produced on these west
ern prairies from these garden patches,
some faint iuea can be formed by an
Imaginative mind as to the immense
possibilities and rich heritage of a glo
rious western Canada.”
The estimate of the wheat crop, as
made by the writer quoted, is exces

there will be a grer.t deal of satisfac

Holy Week I* Celebrated by Religious

Lima, Peru.—Semana Santa, or Holy
Week, Is a week of preparation. Booths
dedicated to different saints are erect

the church to the foot of the Calle de

Saturday the arches are decorated
with fruit, vegetables, live fowls, kids,
etc., and everything is got in readiness
for the great day, Palm Sunday.
Early Sunday morning the few re
maining things are added to the arch
es and the procession leaves the
church, taking its way to the booth af
the foot of the street, where they re

On Friday night was the groat event
of the week, the great procession, be
ginning at ten o’clock and headed by
three men, one of them carrying the
crown of thorns; the second, the nails
which nailed the Lord to the cross;
:he third, the cock that crew. This

trimmed and lighted containing the
image of our Lord so painted that
blood appeared to be on the forehead
and face. Very realistic it looked in
the semi-darkness.
■Next was a float containing the Vir
gin Mary beautifully dressed in pur
ple velvet trimmed with priceless lace
and jewels, her long train held up by
angr-ls. As the streets were dark only
for the lights on the floats and torches
carried by the crowd, who were all
dressed in black, and the procession
moved so slowly, appearing to mark
time and swaying from side to side,
they were more than two hours going
around two hlooks.
On reaching the church the floats
were put within to remain till the res

morning. No train whistled, no bells
rang, no teams were in the Ftreets

and the club will settle the doctor's
bills. He hobbles to American League
