The Latest Is Winning Cham
pionship for Oats a Third
Ttecontly was published the (act of
remarkable winnings by Canadian
farmers In several ovonts during tho
paBt thrco or four years. Tho lateBt
Is that of Messrs. J. C. Hill & Sons
of Lloydmlnstor, Saskatchewan, who
won In a hard contest for tho oat
championship over Montana. At the
National Corn Exposition at Dallas
during February, Montana oata woro
awarded tho championship for tho
"United States. Waiting for tho win
ner of this to bo announced was a
peck of oats belonging to tho Ca
nadian growers abovo mentioned, and
alongside- of thoso was a llko quantity
belonging to a Minnesota grower, who
was barred from tho regular compe
tition bocauso ho was at ono tlmo tho
wlnnor of tho trophy tho prizo. Tho
thrco entrleB woro sldo by sido on tho
Judgo's bench. It would not bo pos
sible to bring together threo more
likely samplos. Tho Montana and
Saskatchewan entrlos were of equal
weight CO pounds to tho bushel. Tho
Minnesota sample- was some threo
pounds lighter. Tho award was
unanimous In favor of tho Saskatche
wan oats. A romarkablo fcaturo and
ono greatly to tho credit of tho Ca
nadlau product was that tho oats,
grown In 1913, wero grown and shown
by thoso who had competod during
tho past two years, winning on each
occasion. This, tho third winning,
gavo them for tho third time the
world's championship and full posses
sion of tho splendid $1,500 silver
trophy contributed by the state of
t Jfie tets' which have thus given to
Western Canada another splendid ad
vertising card, wero grown 300 miles
north of tho International boundary
lino, proving that In this latitude, all
tho smaller grains can bo grown with
greater perfection and with more
abundant yield than further south. In
all this country are to be found farm
ers who produce oats running from
42 to 48 pounds to tho bushel, and
with yields of from 60 to 100 bush
els per acre. Wheat alBO does well,
grades high, and yields from 30 to 40
bushels per aero. Tho snmo may bo
said of any portion of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta, famed
over tho world not only as a country
where championship grains nro grown,
'but where cattlo and horses are raised
that also carry off championships and
where wild grasses are abundant
ylelders, cultivated hay and alfalfa
t are grown, thus giving plenty of feed,
and with a good climate, sufficient
shelter and plenty of water, bring
about results such as western Canada
has been able to record. Thousands
of farmers from the United States
who havo their homes in Canada bear
ample testimony to tho benefits they
have derived from farming in west
era Canada. Advertisement

ORIGIN OF NURSERY RHYMES
Jack Horner 8tolo a Title Deed
"Little Bo-Peep" Was a Holy
Friar and Not a Maiden,
"Jack and Jill" Is supposed to refer
to the comploto amalgamation between
Saxons nnd Normans, whllo "Hurapty
Dumpty" Is said to havo been a bold,
bad baron In tho time of King John.
Tho "Babes In tho Wood" had tholr
origin In an actual crime committed
In the fifteenth century, nnd tho story
may bo scon carved on a mantelpiece
of an ancient house In Norfolk.
"Littlo Do-Peep" was not a maiden,
but a holy frlnr who In Arglo-Saxon
days went round collecting for the
monasteries. Tho "sheep" referred to
tho congrogatlon, and their "tails" to
tho contributions they would bring
In with them.
"Tho Houeo That Jack Built" was an
adaptation of a Chnldee hymn, sym
bolizing ovonts in tho history of tho
Hebrew nation; while, according to
tho London Observer, a romantic his-
tory attaches to "Little Jack Horner,"
who was Btoward to tho abbot of Glas
tonbury. The latter wished to appease King
Henry VIII., who was Indignant be
cause tho monks had built a kitchen
which he could not burn down. Tho
abbot accordingly dispatched Jack
Horner with a specially tempting look
ing plo, which was flllod lueldo with
tho title deeds of twelva monasteries
as a present to tho king.
Jack 'Horner slyly abstracted ono
deed, which was that referring' to the
manor of Wells, and on bis return to
Glastonbury ho Informed the abbot
that tho deed had beon given to him
by tho king. Tho rhymo was founded
on this Incident, tho "plum" which hu
abstracted being tho tltlo deed of
Johnson I read In tho papers that
an undertaker in Texarkana has closed
his establishment for lack of busi
ness. Wilson Guess be didn't advertise.

Fortunato Is tho ono who can oat
"anything" without nufforlng tho tor
tureB of dyspepBln, but as fow aro so
fortunate, enro should bo taken In tho
matter of diet. Eating slowly, mnstl
eating thu food thoroughly and taking
a short walk after tho henvy meal of
tho day will do much towards assisting
digestion. Any grown-up porson ought
to know tho peculiar foods that do not
agree, and theao should bo avoided.
When thoso conimon-sonso nldn fall,
tho next thing to do Is to tako n mild
digestive tonic with laxatlvo proper
ties, and thoro 1b nono better than Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup I'cpsln. It contains
tho greatest of nil nlds to digestion,
good pepsin. H hnH other Ingredients

together form a combination for tho
relief of dyspopsla or Indigestion that
Its action is to tone and strengthen
tho stomach and bowel muscles so
thnt they can ngnln do tholr work nat
urally without outsldo aid, and when
that happy momont comcH all medi
cine can bo dispensed with. It Is tho

order of tho stomnch, llvor nnd bow

"Aye," said tho laborer dryly.
Sovoral other questions woro an-

Finally, Lord Aberdeen uBkcd: "What

Tho Inborer pnused in hifl work and

THE BEST TREATMENT FOR
ITCHING SCALPS, DANDRUFF
AND FALLING HAIR
To allay itching and irritation of the
scalp, prevent dry, thin and falling
hair, remove crusts, scales and dan
druff, and promote tho growth and
beauty of tho hair, the following spe
cial treatment is most effective, agree
able and economical. On retiring,
comb tho hair out straight nllaround,
then begin at tho sldo and mnko a
parting, gently rubbing Cutlcura Oint
ment into tbo parting with a bit of
soft flannel held over tho end of tho
'finger. Anoint additional partings
about half an inch apart until the
wholo scalp has been treated, the pur
pose being to get tho Cutlcura Oint
ment on the scalp skin rather than on
the hair. It Is well to place a light
covering over the hair to protect the
pillow from possible stain. The next
morning, shampoo with Cutlcura Soap
and hot water. Shampoos alone may
be urcd as often as agreeable, but
once or twice a month is generally
sufficient for this special treatment
for women's hair.
Cutlcura Soap and Ointment sold
throughout tho world. Sample of each
