What lit sit)H Is Interesting:

"J. N. Urlcvo, Kern-., Spokane, V'iuli
Ington. Dear Sir: After n dozen or
more years of uutsucressful effort In
(ho mercantile business lu Western
Washington, lu August, J90;i, decided
to como to Alberta with a geutlemuu
who was shinning two cats live Block
to Kdmonton. I assisted this man
with (lie stock over one hundred
miles out In the lllicli Luke Country,
East of Kdmonton. Indeed, how sue
lirlsed, how favorably everything com
pared with my dicain of wliat I want
ed lo ace In a new country.
"Hail never had any experience In
farming, but I was Immedlalely con
verted into a fanner. And from that
moment I have prospered. Selecting
a homestead near Mich Lake, I re
turned for wife and three small chil
dren and freighted out fioin ICdinontou
In March following year wo shoveled
a spot clear of snow and pitched our
lent and commenced operations, at
thnt time wc had no neighbors, l-'oiir
years have pnsKed, the locality is well
nettled, two miles from railway sta
tion, with churches and schools, tele
phone and good road accommodations.
"Wo are enjoying the privileges
granted to any rural district in
Washington. The Illrch Lake Coun
try Ib no exception, this great trans
formation Is rapidly going on lu every
district in Western Canada.
"I estimate that every quarter sec
tion In every direct Ion is capable of
producing a comfortable living for a
family of ten forovor. After paying
for two horses und a cow, had just
110.00 to go on. Did my first plough
ing In my life. I wns very awkward In
my work, but nature was glad and I was
abundantly paid for my efforts. Our
cattle bus Increased to about fifty
hoad, which was very prolltablo on ac
count of the abundance of forage. To
farm was compelled to buy about four
hundred dollars' worth of farm ma
chinery on time, and the payments fell
duo last fall, ami you may wonder how
I expected to pay for them when we
had such a bad year. 'Twas a little
bad for Western Cnnnda or for a Mis
uourinn. Hut Is not 35 or 10 bushels
oats a pretty good yield per aero In
ninny Slntos? Then the price of
grain wont out of sight, so when I had
sold my crop I found 1 was able to
make my payments nicely, besides wo
hud lots of feed. No one has any busi
ness raising cattle without growing
grain, or vlco versa. As to the winters,
did not food my cattle, excepting the
calves, a fork of hay until In March.
Have found the winters much more
pleasant thnn wo did In Western Wash
ington. This Is straugn und hard to
explain, but 'tis true, nevertheless, at
40 degrees bolow zero we have inorq
comfort than you would nt 20 degrees
above, so still and dry with bright,
Bunny days. My wife says that the
only regret she has Is thnt we did not
come hero ton years ago, ns we would
now certainly have been lu n position
to rot ire from hard work. Most wom
en soon become satisfied as neigh
bors begin to come round thorn.
Hnvo 98 ncres in crop this year,
besides two acres potatoes, which
have always brought me a fair
price. Wo Had a ready market for
cvory tiling we produce. To the Poor
Mnn Hero is n chance to establish
yourself. To tho Rich Mnn Horo is a
chance lo buy lnnd for $10.00 to $15.00
por acre which will produce more crops
than a half dozen acres of your $50.00
to $75.00 per aero land. And it not
very much mistaken, tills year will
provo an oyo opener to thoso who are
a llttlo sceptical. The troublo with
mo Is that I hnvo so much to say so
fnvorablo to Alberta 'tis hard to bo

nud her belt went ucross the middle of
tho stripes as straight as It 'twas laid
out with a spirit lovel. I couldn't seo
her face good, for she had on a sun
bonnet and 'twas llko peeking at her
through a null keg, but she hnd snap
ping black eyes and moved quick,
which wa'n't Hannah .lane's way by a
good sight. I stood und stared at her.
"I say you'ro pretty wet, ain't you?"
she says again, louder. "Why don't

Hello! What? Who?"
Ho looked at tho girl and iho at him.
Then ho says brisk:
"Can you cook';'
Whatever that girl might have ex
pected, from us, I gtioss sho didn't ox
pect that. It set her back so that she
couldn't spent; for a full minute;
which was something of a miracle, as
1 found out I uter.
"Can I what?" she says, llnully.
"Can you cook?" asks Van Hrunt
"Can 1" Then sho turns to mo.
"Ho ought to be attended to right off,"

she says, referring to Vnn. "Some of

squeezes It to death."
Van laughed and dropped the roos

It. "Ket me explain," he begun. "You

Hartley spoke then. "Wait 'a min

is what I'm hero for," says she.
"Which of you three Is tho quahaug
"Tho which?" says I; and the Heav
eullcs both said the same.
"Which or you la the quahaug one?
I've got some business to talk with
"Martin," says Van, grave, and
turning lo his chum. "Are you a
'qunhaug one?' "
"I guess he Is," says 1. I was be
ginning to see a light. Hartley's clam
ming cruise was turning out as I'd ex
pected. "Humph!" says tho girl. "Well, you
mado a clean job, Lys says. About
three buckets and a hair, wa'n't they?"
You never see a man so puzzled as
Hartley, unless 'twas Van Brunt. They
looked at each other, at the girl, and
then at me. I explained.
"1 judge 'twas this young woman's
quuhuug bed that you and James
cleaned out t'other day," I says. "You
lemember I told you we'd hoar from
them qiiahaugs later."
"Oh!" says Martin. "Awfully sorry,
I'm sure. I hope you'll permit me to
She bobbed the sunhonnet up and
down. "That's what I come for," says
she. "They was my brother Lycurgus'
quiUiaugs. Ho'tl Just bedded 'em.

this time of your. That's three dol
lars and a hair. 1 won't charge you ror
the sticks, though what on earth you
done with them Is more'n I can make
out, and Lyn says tho same."
Van was grinning from ear to ear.
T'other Twin reached Into his pocket
and fished out a Bopplug-wet pocket
book. "Will the three fifty be stilllcleut?"
he usks. troubled. "I'm really very
sorry. It was a mistake, and"
"Oh, It's all right," says the glil.
"You didn't know no better. Pa says
fools and children ain't nccountubie.
You'd better spread that monoy out
to dry 'foro you pay mo with It. And
you'tl better got dry yourself or youlll
ditch cold. I can wait a spell, I guess.
Why don't you go after your boat,
ulster?" sho says to me. "You'll loso
it first thing yon know."
I looked whero she pointed and thero
was tho skiff stranded bottom up on
tho tip end of tho point Mat. I ran
after It, waded In and hauled It ashore.
Tho Heavcnlles hurried up to tho
house. When I come back the girl
was waiting for mo.
"I'll walk along up with you," sho
says. "Say, you'ro Solomon Pratt,
ain't you? I heard about your Nate
Scudder told pu. Ho Bald he'd let
this place to Sol Pratt und a couple of
crazy men from Now York. I thought
sure you'd swear when tho boat upsot,
but you didn't. You must belong to

"Oo-h!" says I. "I see." I know

and 1 left Kurcka Fiorina in the kitch

hear the Sparro'w girl's tongue going
like a house all re. Martin had Just
paid her for the quuhuugs und sho
wns telling how scarco they'd got to be
in the bay, and how her brother had
worked, to get a few bedded and how
he'd sold a couple of quarts to the
Baptist minister's wife und what she
said about 'em and so on. Tho Heav

says Van, when I come In.
I tlono the honors. "She's one or

cutting In quid;. "There's pretty near

sometimes. You'd think so if you hud
to get tho meals for 'em, same's I do."
"Yon!" says I. "Do you cook for all
that gang? How old are you?"
"Seventeen last March. Cool; (oi

things to cook, too; else we'd have to

Hnrtley spoke then. "We're looking
for n cook," he says. "Will you come
nud cook for us, and help about the
house, here? Mr. Prntt Mnds the Job
too big for one man."
She bobbed her head. "Yup," says
she, dry as a chip. "I should think he
might, judging by what I've seen. No,
1 can't come. I'vo got to stuy home
und look out for tho folks."
"Why can't your father do that?"

ma died sho used to try to cure him,
but tho doctor and pa had a row. Tho
doctor said pa didn't have consump

was hard exercise, such us work. Pa
said the doc didn't know his business,
ami the doc said maybe not, but he

Sho thought for u moment or so. "I
don't know," sho says. "Most folks in
this neighborhood Is too high toned to
go out working. Tuoy'd rather stay
to home and take boarders. Mrs. Han
nah Jane l'urvls Is about tho only
one, and you'vo had her."
Martin made a fuce. "Wo have," ho
"Yup," suys Euroku. "She told Mr.
Scudder that you was crazy us all got
out, nud sunk lu worldly sin besides.
She saltl you'd get your pay hereafter
for treating her tho way you did."
"We hope to," says Van, cheerful.
"Now, Miss or Sparrow, we want
you to como and help us out. We'ro
Crusoes on a desert Island and we
need a Man I should say Woman
Friday. We'll pay you so much," he
says, naming u price that made oven
my eyes stick out, and I was used to
high prices by this time.
"A month?" she says, staring at
"A week," says he.
She hud a queer way of doing every
thing by Jerks, like as If sho was hung
on wires and worked with n string.
Now she straightened up out of her
chair so sudden you almost expected
to hear her snnp.
"A week?" she sings out. "Oh!"
Then sho looked nt me.
"Oh, it's so, If he snys so," says I,
"Lnnd snkes! A week! I never
but It uln't no use. What would be
come of pa and the children?"
"Couldn't you come over for tho
ditys, at least?" asks Martin. "You
might go home nights, you know."
And thut's tho way It ended, finally.
The Twins had made up their minds,
und when that happened, heaven nnd
earth wouldn't change 'em. At last
Eureka said she'd talk It over with
her folks and Van Brunt said wo
would come over to her house next
duy and get the decision.
"There!" says he, when the Sparrow
girl had gone. "Skipper, the cook
question Is settled."
"Maybe 'tis," says I. "Looks to mo
as If you'd settled It the way tho feller
settled tho coffee, by upsetting It. For
chaps that pined for rest and quiet you

what getting mixed up with Hint Spar
row gang Is likely to mean?"
"If the whole flock Is llko the speci

mean Joy. If there wns ono thing
needed to make Ozone Island n de
light, a gem or purest ray serene, that
original would be the thing. She's a

By the way, what's her Christian
I told the name the whole of It.
How them Heuvenllcs did laugh.
"Eureka!" says Hartley. "Splen
did!" "Eureka!" says Van. "We have
round It! Sol, let's have lunch."
I got 'em something to cat and then
the three or us put in the afternoon
chasing the wild animals. The chick
ens was fairly easy to get hold of; I laid
a trail of corn up to the door or tho lien
yard and trapped the most of 'em that
way. But the pig was a holy terror.
" i'd bad his experience with Ozono
Islanders thnt morning and ho didn't
want any more. Up and down that
blessed sand bar wo chased him, get
tng upset und thing ourselves out. The
pig race over to Eastwicli wa'n't in It.
I did most or the chasing; the Heaven
lies superintended, as usual, and gave
orders und laughed. They pretty nigh
laughed themselves sick. Finally tho
critter bolted Into the woodshed and I
locked the door on him. It was six
o'clock when I dumped him into the
sty. Or all the Natural Life days I'd
had yet this one was the liveliest and
most weurlng. A week like It and my
natural place would have been the
burying ground. I cal'late I lost three
pound that afternoon. I was getting
so thin that when I fell down my legs
made' grooves In the sand.
The next forenoon me nnd Hartley
went over to close tho cook trade.
Van wouldn't go. He said the garden
ing and the shipwreck and the steeple
chasemeaning the pig hunt had
given him sensations enough for a
week or so; he hud somo of 'em with
him yet. So Martin said he'd go, for
my sake. 1 borrowed a couple of spare
oars from Scudder, when ho arrived
with the morning's dose of ski in
milk und cream and butter, and, as I
took care to row the skiff this time, wo
made the passage all right. Then
wc walked up to the Sparrow's nest.
'Twits u pretty shabby-looking shack,
now I tell you. Shingles dropping faff,
and fence falling down, and a general
shortage of man's work everywhere.
But thero was a bed of bachelor but
tons and old maid's pinks under tho
rront window, and the windows them
solves wns clean and bright. Eureka
had tlonc her best to mnke tho placo
homey;' you could seo that.
Sho let us in when we knocked at
the kitchen door. Her sleeves was
rolled up and there was a big basket
or clothes by tho steaming wasjitub.
Kdltha, the 12-year-old, was grinding
at tho wringer and Dewey, tho baby,
was setting on tho Moor playing with
a rag doll. Tho rest or tho tribe
except Lycurgus, who had gone ped
dling clams was oft playing.
Eureka, slic apologized for things
being so upset, but thore wa'n't any
need for apologies. Tho liouso was
plain nnd poor you could seo that It
took a mighty lot of stretching to
make both ends como in Bight of each
othor, lot alone meet; but 'twas clean
as a whistle. Even tho baby was
clean, all except his faco and hands,
and no healthy young ono ought to
have them clean.
"Good morning," says Hartley.
"Havo you decided to cook for us?"
Sho bobbed her head over tho wash
tub. "I'vo decided it, ir pa has," says
she. "Ho ain't mado up his mind yot.
Ho wanted to sleep on it, ho said. I
guess ho's done that. Ajiyhow he's
Just got tip. Stop right into tho din
iug room and talk to him. You'll havo
to oxcuso mo; I'vo got to got thl3
washing done nforo noon, somehow."
So she pitched Into tho scrubbing,
bending lu tho mlddlo exactly llko n
Jointed pocket rulo, and tho Twin and
me went Into tho dining room.
(TO DE CONTINUED.)
As It Shouldn't Be.
"No," remurked tho man who
I'entued to be talking to himself, "It
"What isn't right?" queried the
party who overheurd tho remark.
"The wasting of bo much money on
cake frostlngs at a wedding, consider
ing tho futuro unceasing appetites of
tho happy couple for plain bread," ex
plained tho noisy thinker.
