out early in tho morning with their

has been artificially taken away. Tho
chief egg desiccating companies are in
St. Louis and New York. No salts 'or

product being simply a consolidated

mense quantities of eggs are preserved
in the spring of tho year by liming.
Thus treated they are good for every
purpose except boiling. It is a com
mon fraud for dealers to palm off eggs
so treated aa fresh, so that imposition
is easily practiced. la the desiccating
process, however, tho difference bo
comes apparent, as from four to five
more limed eggs are required to make
a pound of eggs crystaliscd than when
fresh are used, and eggs in the least
tainted will not crystalise at all. Col

I talked with several nml found that
thoy wero delighted with their pros
pects. The land la superlatively fertile,
the soul being a black mould which is
never less than two feet in depth and
in many places Is as much as twelvo
feet deep. Grain grows luxuriantly, as
much as fifty bushels of wheat to tho
acre being no uncommon yield. Vege
tables llourish and attain gigantlo pro
portions. I saw a cucumber grown
not far Jrom here which waa six feet
and a-half long. Indeed, tho most
striking proof and Illustration of the
fertility of tho soul is supplied by tho
land which the half-breeds have culti
vated. I saw a crop of wheat yielding
twenty-five buahcls to the acre growing
on ground whereon wheat had been
grown for sixty years in succession.
Such land, properly cultivated, would
provo a veritable gold mine. Tho air
Is light and exhilarating, in the hottest
part of tho summer the evenings aro
cool and a blanket can always be borno
in bed. I can speak of the winter cli
mate from hearsay only, yet all those
persons who have wintered here speak
of the climate in high praise. Mr Tay
lor, the United States Consul, who has
lived in Winnipeg for six years, con
firmed to me all that I have heard from
tho natives lu favor of the winter cli
mate. Perhaps tbe beit proof of good
health which I saw was the closing of a
lartro druggist's store on account of in
