These are two typical examples of
what thousand's upon thousands from
the states and the eastern provinces
of Canada have done in the north
western portion" of the dominion.
This excursion of agricultural edi
tors, which was fully appreciated by
every member, was organized by tho
firm of Brlghtman & Brown of St.
Paul, advertising agents, who handle
practically all the land advertised
which goes out of Canada. Mr. A.
B. Brlghtman Is thoroughly familiar
with the proposition and appreciates
the importance of getting it before,
the people of the United States. Ho,
induced the railroads, the land com
panies, the boards of trade through
out the northwest to subscribe to a
fund for conducting this excursion. In
this work he was ably seconded by
Mr. Theodore P. Knappen, secretary
of the Western Immigration associa
tion, an organization formed quite re
cently for the purpose of placing the
advantages of northwestern Canada
before the people. These men ac
companying the party saw to it that
every comfort was provided and made
it possible for the agricultural edi
tors to get comprehensive and accu-j
rate ideas of what northwestern
Canada was capable. The Canadian
Northern railroad and the Canadian
Pacific railroad hauled the two privates
cars over the main pbrtfdns of their
roads, making it possible for these
editors to see all the prominent and
important sections or the country, to
interview business men and farmers,
as to just what has been done and
what the country Is capable of do
ing. The good as. well as the bad
points were presented so that any
fair minded editor returned from that
trip with an exact knowledge of the
Canadian northwest. The attention
and courtesy ' shown by Messrs.
Brfghtman and Knappen, by the rail
roads, commercial bodies and by offi
cials of the government, wno were
detailed to be on the train at all times
was thoroughly appreciated and fully
expressed in resolutions adopted on
the last day of the trip.
Leaving Wfunipeg August 22, the
party visited a number of places in
southern Manitoba, where farmers
have been for twenty years. Here
they saw great wheat fields still pro
ducing from twenty-nve to forty bush
els to the acre of twenty years of
cropping. From thin region we went
to Dauphin and visited the region
"which had been farmed for about
seven years. The famous Dauphin
plains bore this year wonderful crops
of grain which were the admiration of
men familiar with great wheat coun
tries. The party then went west to Bat
tleford, then back to Saskatoon, where
a trip was taken through the big
wheat fields there. Tnis is a great
wheat region, and during tne present
year will ship in tne neighborhood
of one million bushels. The party
then went north to Prince Albert,
back to Regipa, then west to Leth
bridge, where a side trip was taken
to Raymond. There the beet suerar
factory was visited, and the irriga
tion region inspected. The party
then went north to Edmonton, at
tending the celebration accompanying
the inauguration of the lieutenant
governor of the new province of Al
berta, then back to Banff, where the
Sabbath day was spent very pleasant
ly, after which the start home was
A stop was made at Calgary, and
the organization project being devel
oped by the Calerary Colonization
company was investigated. The party
then started for Winnipeg, stopping
at several places en route. One day

How I Got My Hearing
By GEORGE II. WILSON
I WAS once a denf man!
I was so denf thut I couldn't hear a
watch tick when held close ncalnst my
car. Tho Deafness carno on by decrees, and
first I hardly noticed It.
As it Rrcw I noticed my friends falling
nway from me. Then my business clicncci
began fndlnir out. It wns too much troublo
to talk to n Denf man.
Now, I want you to know that I wns am
bitious and had made largo plans for my
own future. I knew I had the Drains to suc
ceed, if I could only get over that tcrriblo
curse of Deafness. It scorned to shut mo
out from nil my Opportunities.
My Deafness set me worrying and think
ing hard for a menns of Cure.
For nearly two years I hnuntcd the ofTlces
of Ear-DoctorS. Then I tried about every
quack remedy, and my money melted as fast
as my chances for making more vanished.
Thccnd of it came at last, and 1 had to work
out my own cure.
That was my salvation! First, I read
nearly every book printed about the ear.
Then I made n model of the hearing part of
the Ear. Then I tried all kinds of experi
ments on this artificial Ear.
Whenever I worked out any devlco thnt
looked promising on this artificial Ear, I
tried it on my own living Ear. Night after
night I worked on my experiments, with
levensn nope ana anxiety, tor tne result
meant everything to me in this world. I nm
sure I worked harder, thought deeper and
experimented further than any Ear Specialist
had ever done before.
At last I hi upon the right idea, and I
worked on this steadily lor months, to
found out how to increase Weak sounds, just
as spectacles or eye glasses increase the size of
small letters, in a book.
From that timo on my progress wns rapid,
till I had a clumsy pair of Listening Ma
chines. Finally I worked the principlo down so that
it was contained in two little telephones.
These went entirely within the cars, where
no one could see them, nor suspect me of
wearing them. Tho only thing now left to
do was to make them so soft and comfort
able, in the Ear holes, that one did not feel
I could hear as distinctly, with them in my
ears, as I ever did before my deafness came
on me. I could hear n watch tick three feet
away, when they were in my ears, though I
couldn't hear a sound from that watch when
tho "Listeners" were removed.
But a greater wonder took place n little
later on. Removing the tiny telephones from
my cars one day, to clean them, I held my
watch up to my right car. was untaxed to
hear it tick clearly and distinctly without
artificial aid I
1 tried this again wilh a yard measure from
week to week, with the "Listeners" removed.
I wan delighted to find thnt encli-Teek I
could hear tho watch tick a few inches
My little Listening Machines had made tho
sounds so loud for ray Hearing Nerves that
thoy had no longer any straining to catch

"My Deafness set me worryinij and think
ing hard for a means of Cure."
This easy hearing rested these Ear Nerves
so much that they soon got brick nil their old
strength and keenness. Thut's what a
fumous doctor snid.
Well, after I got back my hearing you'd be
surprised how my friends came around, and
talked to me. Why, I never knew I had so
many friends, and I don't think I ever knew
their value till I lost my hearing.
A thousand people in this city of Louis
ville, Ky know the story of my struggles
against deafness, nnd of my ultimate suc
cess, greater than I had ever hoped for.
Since then thousands of denf people, in
this country alone, have recovered their
hearing In tho same way, and I wish you
could read the letters they wrote me. 1 have
published n book containing 4C0 of these
letters, which I will gladly send you on re
quest. I think I understand deaf people bcttcrnow
than any other man In America, and when
advice of mine cun help them they are wel
come to it. I can tell them how to recover
their hearing, nnd I will tell any of them who

MONUMENT FOR THE CONCORDS
Massachusetts people propose to
erect a monument to Ephraim Bull of
Concord. Years ago, finding a wild
grapevine in the woods, he trans
planted it in his yard in Concord,
Mass. Careful attention resulted in
delicious grapes. Tho original vine
is still growing and is the father of
the Concord grades we all eat today.
Let the monument De erected. Min
Wonderful and fearful is the Globe
Democrat's logic. That paper holds
that McCall's contribution to the re
publican campaign fund from money
belonging to the policyholders of the
New York Life was a disgrace to the
democratic party. The Globe-Democrat
probably arrived at that conclu
sion by walking on the ceiling. Jop
