MOUNT VERNON SIGNAL HAD A CAPITAL OF $400 In Six Years He Was Well Off An Alberta farmer, who had borrowed from a loan company, In remitting to them the last payment on his mortgage, decided to give them the history of his experience, on a Manitoba farm. It was that of many another farmer, and for the benefit of those who contemplate a change the liberty is taken of reproducing it. "I will give you here a brief summary of my experience since coming here six years ago. I was a new hand :it farming, my trade being My capital was and butchering. $400. which was a first payment on i::y quarter section (100 acres). Most of my stock, harness, implements, etc., were bought at sales, all "on time," necessarily. The buildings on the place were about as good as nothing and had either to be rebuilt or replaced entirely. There were M acres broken, and very hadly farmed, bringing poor returns the first year." After mentioning a number of mischances, he says: "In Kpite of all these drawbacks, I have done well. I consider my farm worth $3,500 to $4,000. I have four head of horses. 12 of cattle, over 400 purebred Buff Orpington chickens and 125 turkeys, besides implements, harness, etc.. to run my place. I have a well 170 feet deep with an Inexhaustible supply of water. The well with pump cost me $400. I have built a $125 chicken house and put up nearly $50 worth of poultry fencing; have built root cellars to hold over 3,000 bushels of potatoes and other vegetables. As to income, I raise about ten acres of garden and root aLiiiiiilly which net from $600 to $1,000 Mai. I generally sell from 20 to 40 tons timothy hay which brings from $6 to $14 per ton. My grain Is most ail used on the farm except a few hundred bushels sold to the nelgh-lor- s for si ed. My four milk cows bring in from $50 to $80 each (counting calf). Last year 80 hens laid 600 dozen eggs which averaged more than 25 cents a dozen (I always work for winter egg production). The surplus hens were sold in spring, dressed at $1 each. My turkeye average $2.50 each in fall. By having vegetables to feed my young oattle. the steers bring $75 each in spring."

As an inducement to secure the necessary help at once, Canada will give Canada Offers 160 Acres Free to Farm Hands ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY ACRES OF LAND FREE AS A HOMESTEAD and allow the time of the farm laborer, who has filed on the land, to apply as residence duties, the same as if he actually had lived on it. This special concession is the reduction of one year in the time to complete duties. Two years' residence instead of three as heretofore, but only to men working on the farms for at least six months in 1917. This appeal for farm help is in no way connected with enlistment for military service but solely to increase agricultural output.

"Isn't this a rather time for such childish diversions?" he inquired a little sternly. The preoccupied girl continued for a full moment to turn and twist that g mirror before she spoke. "This childish diversion, as you call It may be the only means of saving our lives," was her calm answer. "I heard that click that meant your last cartridge, and I am trying to heliograph for help." She resumed her quick movements that sent the long beams of light radiating out across the valley. Suddenly they saw an automobile filled with passengers turn off the highway and wind rapidly up the drive. They saw the distant figures of the men as they got out of that machine and started to enter the house. Then the bulky figure in the lead stopped abruptly and concentrated his attention on that faint spot of light flickering on the side of tha veranda. After a moment he turned aod spoke excitedly to the little group around him.

He followed this by another granite projectile, and still another. But It was an easy matter for the attackers to dodge these clumsy missiles, and it was evident that at best only a brief respite could be gained by this medieval method of warfare. One of the gangsters drew a deliberate bead on the exposed figure of the Laughing Mask, but Legar struck up his arm before he could fire. "I want to snare those birds alive," Margery heard him grimly announce. making each word a stab, "and I do not care to accept a gift of any kind from your hands." As she finished speaking the wrathful girl turned and swept Into the house, leaving a saddened young man absently holding a sprawling collie puppy in his arms. The Dice of Chance. David Manley was decidedly unhappy. And his dejected spirits were due entirely to the fact that he had fallen under the scornful displeasure of a certain adorable young woman who had caught him In a deliberate and unwarranted falsehood. Following his disastrous rout at the d battle of Seven Oaks hill, their enemy had seemingly declared a truce, and now the gentle Mrs. Golden, In the hope that It might prove a distraction for the deeply brooding girl. planned a gay lawn fete, to which the tent a swarthy Italian dressed In the whole countryside was Invited.

That this diabolical undertaking was entirely to the liking of Black Tony was evidenced by his evil, grin as he took the paper from Legar's ringers and placed it In his pocket. Carrying a small and black bag. he started blithely forth on his terrible errand of destruction. Dressed in a rusty ttrxedo. the supposed waiter emerged from the gayly striped marquee where the long supper table was receiving its finishing touches and paused for a moment on his way to the small service tent which was pitched near by. His eyes roved over that assemblage much as the eyes of a butcher might appraise a flock of sheep herded for slaughter. As his glance rested upon the massive oak towering over the refreshment tent, he made a little grimace of evil satisfaction. Several feet from Its base the great trunk had been nearly sawn through by Legiir's picked henchmen. And now their ruthless handiwork had been supplemented by the charge of powerful explosive which waited only the spark of ignition to send that huge oak patriarch crashing down upon the flimsy atTair of canvas under its branches. The Italian, exulting over the successful completion of the first part of his deadly mission, stood amidst a scene of wondrous beauty. High in the heavens swung the full moon, casting its mellow effulgence over shimmering lake and wooded hill. Dispelling the wavering shadows were myriads of softly glowing lights, festooning the trees and bespangling the shrubbery. From the rose garden came the sound of gently splashing fountains as they flung their silvery cascades into the scented air. Beautifully gowned women and their somber clad escorts danced on the velvety lawns to the softly swelling music of the great orchestra, or strolled aria in arm about this brilliant land of enchantment. A slender, golden-hairegirl was the center of a laughing group. As she caught sight of something moving at her feet she stooped and picked up a sleepy and blinking-eyecollie puppy, which she held snuggled iu her arms for a moment. "Now, Sandy," she admonished, as she set him down, "it is time all good little dogs were in bed, so run home as fast as you can." The dutiful Sandy started for the house in obedience to the commands of his mistress, but as he passed the caterers service tent sundry whiffs and odors assailed his nostrils with an insistent temptation that was not to be denied. He quietly slipped through that Inviting opening and, finding no one to dispute him. nosed inquisitively into various hampers of savory edibles. As the clumsy puppy bumped against an Improvised table consisting of a board resting on two barrels, a large bowl containing a siruplike mixture toppled onto his back and deluged him with its entire d yellow-toothed well-worn cold-bloode- sticky hairs caught up that scrap of paper, which, by his distracted wallow Ing. was worked into his matted coat until It clung with burrlike tenacity. Although Black Tony was in Ignorance that his incriminating diagram had been appropriated in this odd manner, he had an inherent dislike for all animals, which he now manifested hy bestowing a well directed kick with bis heavy boot upon tha struggling Sandy. The injured and much aggrieved puppy gnve one yelp of pained surprise and darted out of the tent. With drooping tail nnd tjually drooping spirits, he started as fast as his short legs could carry him for the home of Aunty Kicks, which was the place of his nativity, and where no such brutal treatment as this had ever been meted out to him. The multreated Sandy, reaching the old gray farmhouse which had formerly been his home, raced through the open door into the cheerful living room where a somewhat dejected young man was sitting with an elderly, kindly-facewoman. "Sakes alive. If it ain't that pup come back home!" she ejaculated. Her younger-eyecompanion Immediately saw that something was amiss with the pet he had bestowed upon Margery Golden as a parting gift. Then he saw the scrap of paper sticking in the dog's matted hair and his face grew serious. Perhaps the one he loved was in danger and in this strange way had sent a message asking his help. With swift fingers be disentangled the paper and, smoothing out Its gtiMimy cren es. strlilied it with frowning intensity. What he saw was a rough sketch of a large field tent. with a tree outlined close beside it. To the puzzled-eyeyoung mao came a sudden and startled comprehension of those apparently meaningless drawings. Only that afternoon he had passed the great manor house and had seen the preparations for the lawn fete to which he had received no invitation. He had noted the striped marquee put up directly under the mammoth oak. That time would undoubtedly be the supper hour. Davy's face went whi as he hurriedly glanced at the clock on the mantel. A fearful apprehension seized him that it might already be too late to prevent the frightful massacre planned by he Paying no heed te criminal. the anxious queries of his wonder, ing companion, he rushed from that room in a frenzy of dread foreboding. As he flung himself upon his pulsating motorcycle and snot out into ths darkness. His fear would have been a hundredfold intensified could he have seen the murderous Italian, who at that moment touched a lighted match to the end of the time fuse projecting from the nearly severed oak. It was a race between a spark of fire eating its way up the fuse and a wildly driven motorcycle lurching through the night. The stakes of that desperate race were precious human lives. Once the race was nearly lost, as the pounding machine missed by a hair's breadth a heavy touring car with headlights.

Because, I care not you! who and what you have been before, if you have never realized the mighty meaning of this simple scene, you may have known a dead Jesus, but you have never known the risen Savior! We have asked who were there? Let us take a final moment to ask what else was there? There, in that hour, all the mighty realities of the two worlds were gathered ; this world and the next, the world that the disciples had known so long and the world of which they were catching faint but dazzling, astounding glimpses as they gazed on him ; the world that he had been born in, lived In, worked in, died in and the world that he was living in at the time that he ate and talked before their eyes The realities of this world were there. Labor was there they of the hands, calloused by the wet net cords, they of the many a night of fruitless toil, they know what the weariness and uncertainty of labor is as few others know. Hunger was there, the meal that his love prepared to meet their famished bodies, doubly worn with abstinence and disappointment. Death was there, the end of all earth or why the meal to keep the body going, the labor for one's loved ones, and why the amazement at seeing one over whom the omnipotence of death had no power?
