somehow these two did not get into the bundle which ho was preparing to deliver to the priests The temptation had come and In heItreasures And etc he had finished gathering the gold and silver for the treasury of the lord ho had persuaded himself that that wedge of gold and that garment really belonged to him for his loyalty for turning InI such a goodly sum It never would be known and as ho placed

whether this were all How that gold and silver and garment hid den within his clothing seined to weigh him down Feverishly ho dug deep in the ground underneath his tent and placed the treasure there

settlers In recent years has caused many of our Journals and public men to sit up and take no ice to uso a current phrase From every European country and from almost every State In the Union large number of settlers have flocked to the pralrlo provinces of Canada where free homesteads and wide opportun ties aro open to all who desire to avail themselves of them The greatest factor in attracting settlers lies In tho Inherent richness of soil and suitability of climate for producing what is universally consid ered to be tho finest wheat in the world tho No 1 Hard of Canadian growthand other cereals that rank- In tho very first class This year the harvest returns were Wheat 90 000000 bushels oats 76000000 bu els barley 17000000 bushels t when It is considered that the entir population of tho three provincesat evidenced by the quinquennial censu Just completedIs only 810000 It easily seen that the lure of the dlan West in Its agricultural i tialltics Another feature which attracts the settler Is that railway construction is proceeding with such rapidity that al most every district Is within easy reach of outsido markets and that good prices for all lines of farm products rulo practically from tho com mencement of agricultural operations This Is a factor which did not prevail whop tho earlier settlements In tbe West were made in Canada and in the United States and has given a gw t impetus to Canadian Western se tle ment in recent years The free grant system of home steads which prevails In the prairie provinces by which every settler who is able and willing to comply with the conditions of actual settlement by no means onerous is given 160 acres free except 10 for entry is a great drawing card and in the last fiscal year gathered in over 189000 addi tional to the western population of which 57796 were from the United StatesThe further fact as Is strongly brought about by the agent of the Canadian Government whose address appears elsewhere that a splendid common school system practically free prevails throughout the entire country and is easy ot access in even tho most remote districts is another great inducement to the settler who has tho future welfare ot his family in mind and this coupled with the fact that western Canadian law and order are proverbial completes a circle of good and sufficient reasons why tho tide of immigration has set in so steadily toward the country to the north of our boundary line THE MAN WITH THE SHOVEL There Are Millions of Him Delving for Earths Wealth We sold In 1905 says a Boston manufacturer 350000 dozen
