flQB, I&, Sept, 1904, for the great
Cuadian prairies. To quote from his
letter: "I was greatly surprised to
fnd SBch an immense stretch of rich
virgin prairie still almost unoccupied
ia the. very .heart of. North .America.
The splendid crops of .oats, wheat, bar
ley, potatoes and hay I beheld in the
settlements made me very eager for a
piece of this rich soil, and J soon lo
cated in the Goose Lake country. We
have here a, great 'stretch of the rich,
deep clay loam of the Saskatchewan
a soil heavy and hard to break, bat
particularly well adapted for the re
tention of moisture and production .of
the bright No. 1 'Hard wheat, and
great crops of oats, barlqy, flax and po
tatoes. I -had 60 'bushels of oats,
weighing 441 lb. to the bushel, per
acre. Some of my neighbors had still
greater yields. Wheat yielded from20
to 30 bushels per acre!.' We' have all
dose well .here, and. I could, name
many Americana who came here with
means to o ahead, who have done
nig already. For homesteads one has
to go fur! her west, but the best prai
rie cam be bought here for from $12.00
to $16.00 per acre. The climate .is
dry and healthy. This is the regular
Saskatchewan fall weather frosty
nights, and bright; sunny days ideal
for threshing and hauling out of
wheat The trails are dusty, as thou
sands of wheat teams are moving
towards the elevators.
"The sight of it makes one stop and
wonder what it will be in a few years
when the immense prairies get under
cultivation. Heavy snowfall is the
exception here. Snow generally falls
in December and goes off in March.
Ifsometimes gets very cold, but the
Saskatchewan fanner does not fear
the cold. Winter Is his season of
rest. The first or second crop he
builds a comfortable house for him

about in the mud all winter attending

Harry Lauder's First Job
The Comedian Failed as Berry Picker
Because He Couldn't "Whussle."
I would he about ten or eleven years
of age when J got my first "job." It
was to pick strawberries for a market
gardener whose ground was not far
away from our house. One of the con
ditions laid down was that the boys
employed in the strawberry beds
should "whussle" all the time they
were at work obviously a contemp

"No, sir, I canna whussle I never

truthful more or less.
"Are ye an honest hoy?" was his
next question.
"Yes, sir. very honest," says I.
Now, the gardener had no earthly
right to engage a boy to pick straw
berries who couldn't-.whistle, and, the
natural result was that before the day
was far spent I collapsed too few
strawberries in Harry's basket and too
many elsewhere. I was ill for three
days, at the end of which time L went
boldly up to the gardener and demand
ed my pay for the day i had been in
his employment.

Warn bsrlbs.
It. is not known definitely before
March or April what to expect of
spiring ands summer modes. In the
matter of materials the problem of
choice should not be. more confuting
than usual. The first of the year al
ways brings out an advance choosing
of summer materials and clever wom
en have learned to pick up some of
these materials and trimmings instead
of trusting to the mid-season display.
The lingerie frocks are chiefly of
the type popular last summer, with
clinging blouse and skirt set together
with waistband of lace or embroidery,
and this waistband is located accord
ing to the caprice of the 'designer. The
stumbling block for the designer of
the sheer summer frock at present 'is
the skirt.
The clinging directoire skirt or
plain, close-fitting circular skirt is all
very well for supple satins, crepes,
broadcloths, etc., but for batiste, lawn
and other summer materials it is hard
ly possible, even when a cleverly
fitted slip is worn under it, and for
the genuine tub frock the thing is out
of the question.
It will be interesting to see what
the developments will be along this
line later in the season, but in this
advance stage of the game makers are
merely experimenting and some of the
experiments show skillfully gored,
close-fitting tops with, plaiting intro
duced below. For example, one of
these frocks made for a southern
wardrobe was of batiste and had lines
of inset Valenciennes insertion bor:
dered by tiny frills .of lace running
down from the waistband half way
down the skirt in front and sides, this
part of the skirt being quite closely

the bottom of the skirt. The bodice
of this little model is good, too, and
simple enough to be easily copied by
a home seamstress. Small batiste cov
ered buttons are set along lines of in
sertion in the sleeves and, bodice front,
forming the only decoration.
The long8leeve is seen In all the
sheer frocks and many women will
sigh regretfully next summer for the
short sleeves of yesteryear. A pretty
'.ong sleeve is almost as much of a
problem as the skirt, and the sleeve
tucked regularly or in groups has
been done to death this winter, so
that, though it will doubtless be the
model most common in the summer
frocks, the fastidious will' strive hard
to get away from it.

Anything that is both novel and useful such as this basket is 3ure to be
appreciated. An oblong wicker basket might be used, though a lightly made
wooden box. or a strong cardboard one, would answer as well. Our model
is lined, first with a layer of wadding, then with satin in a delicate shade of
pink. The satin for the outside is light olive-groon. embroidered in pink flowers,

The dancing that girls should do
that they may acquire health and
grace is not done on the waxed, floor
oi a oan-room, out on tne rougn con
crete or canvas floor of a gymnasium,
or even the carpet of a-bedroom. -
Before the recent furor for artistic
dancing that has gained such an Im
petus in the last year or two with
watching Genee, Isadora Duncan and
Gertrude Hoffman, our women had
learned the benefit of what is called
athletic dancing.
To waltz or two step well develops a
swaying grace and is essential to so
cial success, but .its -benefit on the
health may be questioned. The hour at
which social dancing is done, not to
mention the heated' room, tight clothes
and rich food late at night, does not
make it a great health builder.
Athletic dancing, on the other hand,
builds up the muscles of the legs,
ankles and back, increases the endur
ance of the heart and gives the whole
body more poise and grace. There is
mnoh awavlnir rtt trio twirlv nnrl nsu
I of the arms, so that every muscle Is
brought into play.
Many of the old folk dances are
adapted to this work and when the
steps are once learned they can be
practiced instead of regular gymnas
tic exercises-in one's own room. A
half hour of such dancing is said to
be equal to a five-mile walk, and if the
windows are thrown open during the
practice there can be no more health
ful form of athletic work for girls.'
In getting rid of fleshy hips this
gymnastic dancing is one of the latest
fads, and the woman who suffers with
weak ankle3 or if she is inclined to
stumble and walk uncertainly will find
it beneficial.
As the muscles of the legs get more
exercise than those of the upper part
of the body, it is well to alternate,
the dancing with dumb-bell or wand
movements to equalize control of all
muscles in the body.
Style of Hat Frame to Remain.
When you buy a new hat for this

violets seem to be the most popular
and the most effective, although bluets
or any other small flower would look
just as well.
