Canada to Build Route Similar to
Lincoln Highway—To Extend
From Winnipeg to Calgary.
Central-western Canada will have a
federal highway much after the plan
of the Lincoln highway proposed
across the United States if the proj
ect being urged by the board of con
trol of Winnipeg is carried out This
project contemplates the construction
of a concrete highway from Winnipeg
to Calgary, to go through the more
thickly settled territory tapped«by the
Canadian Pacific railway.
The thousand miles of highway
through the provinces of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and halfway into Al
berta will be financed by the munici
palities by which the roadway would
be traversed. Special appropriations
also will be sought from the provincial
governments. The project has been
received w ith enthusiasm in a number
of the larger cities along the proposed
It has been pointed out by the pro
moters of the highway through the
prairie provinces that its construction
would enhance the value of the farm
lands for several miles on both sides
of the concrete roadway.
{ Splitlog Drag Can Be Employed U
Good Advantage—Prompt. Intelli
gent Action Needed.
Every farmer should spend some
time looking after the roads. The
splitlog drag can be used to good ad
vantage. Road dragging at the propel
time w ill insure good dirt roads the
greater part of the year. All it needs
is prompt, intelligent action. It must,
however, be done at the right time
to get the best results.
Yes! It is true in many places that
the road dragging should be done by
the county, but every farmer should
take enough interest in the community
welfare to see that the road in front
of his farm is gone over with a split
log drag.
There is no other one thing that
would add to our advancement, both
commercial and social as much as
would good roads. Spend a few hours
at this season of the year, when the
frost is coming out of the ground and
the wet from rain and snow is drying
up, with a splitlog drag and it will
result in better roads, a good adver
tisement for your farm and its owner.
State Spending One Hundred Million
Dollars on High-Class Thorough
fares—Money Well Spent.
The state of New York is spending
one hundred millions of dollars in
building good roads. That seems like
an enormous sum of money, but there
was a demand for good roads, and the
results 6o far secured are worth all
the effort.
Over fifty million dollars have al
ready been spent and about as much
more is now available, and in a few
years almost every portion of the state
will be reached by high-class finished
roads They are like boulevards, well
constructed. well cared for and ought
to be very permanent.

Regular Meals Were Necessary After
the Slight Repasts Incident to
Business Hours.
A tall, gaunt young man entered the
office of the Globe Museum and Family
theater and asked for the manager.
“What can 1 do for you?" inquired
a podgy man in a check suit.
"I want an engagement as a freak.”
“Who are you?”
“I am Enoch, the Egg King.”
“What is your specialty?”
“I eat three dozen hen eggs, two doz
en duck eggs, and one dozen goose ;
eggs at a single sitting.”
“I suppose you know our policy?"
“What’s that?"
“We give four shows a day.”
“I understand that."
“And do you think you can do it?"
“I know I can."
"On Saturdays we often give as
many as six shows."
“All right.”
“And on some holidays we give a
performance every hour.”
The young man hesitated.
“In that case." he finally said. “I
must have one thing understood before
1 sign a contract”
“What's that?” asked the manager, j
“No matter how rushing business is
at the museum," the egg king replied,

Ostriches Cheaper These Days.
It helps one to realize the South Af
rican slump in ostriches, as shown
by the sale of a full-grown bird for
three pence at Grahamstown, when
one recalls former prices. In the
early days of ostrich farming, a chick
newly out of the egg would sometimes
fetch £10, and £500 has been
paid for a good pair of grown birds.
But those were the days when one
plucking of a single bird would bring
in £25, and of late years prices
have not ruled so high—you could get
quite a good pair of ostriches for £ 12.
Ostrich farming dates from about
1&67, and brought many a pioneer a
fortune when it first began.—London

The experience of Motherhood is a try
ing one to most women and marks dis
tinctly an epoch in their lives. Not on*
woman in a hundred is prepared or un
derstands how to properly care for her
self. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medical treatment at su*h
times, but many approach the experi
ence with an organism unfitted for the
trial of strength, and when it is over
her system has received a shock from
which it is hard to recover. Following
right upon this comes the nervous strain
of caring for the child, and a distinct
change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainable thing is
that, with all the evidence of shattered
nerves and broken health resulting from
an unprepared condition, and with am
ple time in which to prepare, women
will persist in going blindly to the trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetabl*
Compound, a most valuable tonic and
invigorator of the female organism.
