Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska
told the senate that the farmers have
little interest in Canadian reciprocity.
"In every test that I have made for

said the senator, I have found that
there is an indifference as to whether
the bill becomes a law or is defeated.
Of course there are some farmers
who oppose the measure, but I think
their opposition is so slight, when
compared with the sentiment through
out the state, as to be allium neglig
ible.' President Taft reviewed the action
of President Hayes in a pardon ease

services of his country during thoo

partners, and she was much troubled
at the thought of parting with her
husband. As she was engaged in
scrubbing off her doorsteps, a rough
looking stranger came up and thus
"I hear, ma'am, that your husband
bas been drafted."
"Yes, sir, he has," answered Mrs.
Pilkinston, "though, dear knows,
there's few men that couldn't better
be spared from their families."
"Well, ma'am, I've come to offer
myself as a substitute for him."

with some excitement.

There will be at least 200,000,000
bushels of wheat harvested within the
area of the three provinces above
named this year and it is expected
that the yield will run rrom 15 to 25
bushels per acre. Many farmers, this
year, will net, as a result of their
labors, as much as $8 to $10 per acre
and many of them will deposit as
profits as much as $8,000 to $10,000.
