Editor Mason City Republican Dear
Sir: We arc located in the Beaver
Kills. 30 miles from Ft. Saskatchewan
and 50 miles from Edmonton. To the
cast of these is an immense area of
bottom lands, which furnishes abund
ance of hay for the settlers. It is dot
ted with small lakes, the largest of
which is called Beaver Lake, 16 miles
The Beaver Hills are covered with
small green willows which are easily
gotten rid of before breaking up the
land. Here and there poplar, birch
and tamarack trees abound. Small
meadows are numerous. The soil in
these hills is much richer than the bot
tom lands, being a kind of black leaf
mould. There is no tough sod to
break, and it is very productive.
Wheat, oats and barley do finely and
vegetables are the finest that can be
grown. Potatoes especially are large
and solid, easily producing from 200
to 300 bushels per acre, and best of all
never a "taty bug" to wrestle with.
Wild fruit, strawberries, gooseberries,
saskatoons (or pine berries), raspber
ries and cranberries, are found in the
hills. Small tame fruit does finely, the
red and white currants in my garden
are as large again as common sized
We have long days during the
months of June and July; one can see
to read many evenings until 10 o'clock
in the twilight. Some nights less than
3 hours of darkness, and the birds are
singing at 2 o'clock. - Then again, it
rains so easily. You look toward the
west and see a little cloud coming up,
a gentle shower follows, the sun shines
forth again, and in a little while you
forget it has rained.
Cyclones are unknown here and the
thunder and lightning is very light
We had two storms this summer ac
companied with wind and hail, but
nothing to lodge the grain. The aver
age heat is about 78 degrees. Wc had
three or four days in July at 90. The
nights are always cool.
The winter season is one of great ac
tivity. All the fencing is gotten out
then and logs for the farm buildings.
By paying 25 cents yoa are granted a
permit at the land ofSce to cut logs
upon vacant lands. The roads are
gcod and smooth, for the snow never
drifts, not even around the buildings,
and this is a great saving of time to
the farmer. Hay is hauled from the
bottom lands all winter long, and a
man can work outside every day as far
as the weather is concerned. There are
cold snaps when it reaches 40 .and 48
below zero, but the lack of wind pre
vents one realizing i and the moun
tains 150 miles west of us are a great
protection. Our neighbors are mostly
Canadian. Scotch, Swede, and we have
a nice sprinkling of people from the
states. The creeks abound in small
We are now in the midst of hay
making (Aug. 7). Wheat will not be
cut until early September, this being
a little later season thin common, but
the crop will be immense. I send you
a sample of wheat and barley its
height is almcst even with my shoul
ders, average 50 inches. New comers
lacking binders can hire their grain
cut for 75 cents per acre. Prairie
chickens are here by the thousands.
The water is good. We have a fine
well 15 feet deep. In the creeks the
water is soft and of a yellowish color.
Now for the drawbacks (we have
them), but nothing very serious. The
mosquitoes are simply abominable, es
pecially after a shower. Then again
we are surrounded with bachelors; we
have no less than 18 single men in this
neighborhood, on matrimony bent
When a feminine gender of any age
between 14 and 40 visits these hills we
pity her. so great is the demand for
In conclusion, if the remainder of
our loved ones were here with us, we
should better enjoy life on Ross Creek,
and unless the unexpected develops,
consider this will be a pretty fair place
to end our days.

Major Flint, who sailed in charge
of the mule transport Corinthia, has
a remarkable army record, but. like
most real fighting men. ne is extreme
ly modest and reticent. One of the
best of the few stories he was induced
to tell while here related to an inci
dent of the first Soudan campaign.
"The tribesmen are monstrously cruel
in war," he said, "and not only did
they mutilate our dead in a. most
hideous manner, but also tortured the
living who fell into their hands. Yet.
strange as it may appear, they had
some very noble traits. I remember
they captured a sergeant from our
command early in the campaign and it
horrified us all to think of the poor
fellow's probable fate. Later on we
learned through spies that he had bees
ordered to embrace Mahomctanisa,
and, of coarse, had obeyed, but we re
garded it as merely a cat's play with
a mouse. Then came the news that ko
was being passed along from tribe to
tribe. 'That settles it.' said our col
onel. 'The last sheik that gets him
will argue that he's a true believer and
killing him will only send him to
heaven. We'll never see him again.' "
Greatly to our surprise, however, they
returned him to us unharmed. He
was brought into our lines by a dele
gation of about 30, and, as a matter of
military formality, a guard was called
out to receive him. When the tribes
men saw him marching away between
a couple of soldiers they Jumped at the
conclusion that he'was going to be shot
for being absent, and I win never for
get their indignation. They immedi
ately demanded him back. "This Is a
violation of the agreement!" they cried
In the vernacular. "He is a brave man,
and we did not bring him here to be
killed like a dog!" Their eyes flashed,
and they reached for their weapons,
and it was with great difficulty they
were made to understand that the man
was safe and welcome. Otherwise. I
really believe they would have died in.

Lincoln' Aptness la Ttaoaght.
The following address of Lincoln
does not appear in any of his biog
raphies or collections of speeches and
so far as known has never before ap
peared in print, says the Boston Tran
script On the last day of October,
1864, the Forty-second Massachusetts
regiment, returning from their serv
ices in the defense of Washington,
near Alexandria, passed through the
capital, en route to the north. Al
though worn with months of monoton
ous service and eager to see home and
friends again, they could not miss the
opportunity of paying their respects
to "Old Abe." They accordingly
marched to the white house and drew
up in line before the portico. The tall
form of Lincoln, who was waiting to
receive them, rose from behind a pil
lar, the colors tipped in salute, and,
after a few words of acknowledgment
and greeting, the president said: "You
are Massachusetts soldiers and on your
way home you will go through Balti
more, where, in the early history of the
war your brothers were shot down in
cold blood. But the world has moved
since then. Not only will you see this
in the fact that when you go through
Baltimore you will not have to lift a
finger to provide for any of your wants
but also when you remember that to-
morrow morning, as soon as it is past
midnight, there will not be a slave in
all Maryland; and say what you will,
this result is largely due to the sol
diers. Wishing you a safe journey
home and that you will find your
friends all well, I trust you will keep a
heart for the common cause in which
we are all engaged." Three cheers
were proposed by one of the boys for
"our next president" and heartily
given. As Lincoln progressed in his
brief but pithy address his face lighted
up and his earnest words burned deep
into the soul and memory of a Spring
field member of the color company,
who remembers them to this day and
related the incident to the writer. The
emancipation of the slaves in Maryland
was accomplished by a vote of the
people, the general proclamation not
having effected this, as the state was
never in rebellion, though often on the
verge of it. It was the Maryland sol
diers' aid by ballots, not bayonets, to
which Lincoln referred. The whole
speech is but another instance of Lin
coln's wonderful faculty of compress
ing a great deal of thought into a very
small compass of words. The line "the
world has moved since then" is virtu
ally a panorama of the civil war in six
Tates of Dewey.
While making Cavite his headquar
ters Dewey was in the habit of goin&
ashore almost datly and strolling about
in the neighborhood of the Cavite ar
senal, usually in company with some
officer from the flagship. He was hav
ing a white uniform made at a native
tailoring establishment last December,
and had gone into the shop one sultry
morning in that month to have it
"tried on." Tho fact that the great
admiral bad his clothing made at that
place was the cause of much new
trade coming to the shop of Antonio
Appolo Rojas a fact which the tailor
fully appreciated. The suit was indeed
a misfit but the big-hearted Dawey did
"not upbraid Antonio for bis evident
carelessness or neglect, for he offered
to take it anyhow, saying that "it may
come in handy some time," but the
tailor pleaded with him to allow him
to take his measure again, saying that
the loss should be his own for bis
great mistake. This caused the ad
miral deliberating as to whether he
should allow such a course and while
he was thinking, an officer of the Ne
vada Volunteer Cavalry, who had hap
pened in there, and who had been se
cretly interested in what was going on,
took off his hat, saluted, and with an
anxious smile, asked the admiral if he
would allow him to purchase the uni
form, saying, at the same time, that of
course ne should never wear it himself,
but would consider it a great boon to
be allowed to purchase it as a me
mento. The admiral saw his object
and placed one hand upon the young
officers arm, smiling all the time as
"Thanks, lieutenant; your oppor
tune desire has relieved both the tailor
and myself of possible embarrassment,
and if the uniform can be altered to
fit you, why, as your own. you are cer
tainly welcome to wear it" So it came
about that the uniform made for Ad
miral Dewey In doubtless now adorn
ing the wall of a bachelor's room
away out In Nevada, for that troop of
cavalry has already been mustered out
of service, and the soldiers have all
returned to their own firesides.

the surgeon amputated the foot he kept
it and sent it to the Medical museum at
Washington. An old comrade of Scul

bones of his foot, scientifically mount

what the rebel shell had done to his
ankle. After considerable search, sure

New Order an to Ariujr Hut a.
The latest order from the War de
partment seems to point to greater un
iformity in army neadgcar than ha?
been the vogue hitherto. No more
may the private soldier knock two or
three dents into his campaign hat. or
pin up a flap of the brim on one side
to give him a rakish air. The new
regulation provides against the wear
ing of these hats in any other tnan
their original shape, which is on the
alpine order, a shape that experienca
has proved to be the most becoming
to the average soldier's head.
