found that wo were viewing an in.
stitution that has no competition
in tho whole world. Wo saw your
woolen mill, that mamoth stono
building that rears its imposing
structure towards tho risinsr sun.
Wo turned our eyes westward to

of tho Almighty Creator finds his
resting placo each ovoning, and
there to our mind wo beheld the
Ijgrnndcst enterprise of them all,
your canal that will bo tho means
of supporting hundreds of happy,
prosperous farmers and saw with
pleasuro tho comforlablo homos
that are being erected by tho score
to shelter them. In truth we saw,
and saw, and looked with increas
ing wondor and amazement, and
the thought came to us, "do these
people fully realize what wonder
ful things aro in store for them?"

we found now men coming hero

this their homo. Cars loaded with
household goods and farming
utensils and machinery ready to
be unloaded so soon as a placo can
be provided for them. Everyone,
who wants to be, at work at good
wages. God knows you ouht to
be a happ,y people and I bjliovo
you aro. Surely there is overy
evidence to warrant one in draw
ing such a conclusion.
In closing his remarks, the
Professor made .the following
