What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

After Specialist Failed to Cure Her In- tense Itching Eczema—Had Been Tortured and Disfigured But Was Soon Cured of Dread Humor. \I contracted eczema and suffered Intensely for about ten months. At times I thought I would scratch my- self to pieces. My face and arms were covered with large red patches, so that I was ashamed to go out. I was advised to go to a doctor who was a specialist in skin diseases, but I received very little relief. I tried every known remedy, with the same results. I thought I would never get bet- ter until a friend of mine told me to try the Cuticura Remedies. So I tried them, and after four or five applications of Cuticura Ointment I was relieved of my unbearable itching. I used two sets of the Cuticura Remedies, and I am completely cured.

Primitive Timekeepers Still Popular In the Southern Republic. -- Mexico s'ity.—The sandlot still is in common use in many parts of Mexi- co. These primitive time indicators are to be seen upon many of the build- ings in the towns and cities. Even in the capital of the republic, with its many great clocks, sundials are to be found upon many of the ancient build- ings. It is in the smaller towns, how- ever, where the sundial is still relied upon by the natives as the true mark- er of time.

Some of these dials are two or three centuries old. They are carved out of stone with artistic pre- cision. - In order that the general pub- lic may obtain the benefit of the sun's markings the sundials usually are placed upon buildings having a wide and commanding view.

The following interesting bit of in- formation appeared in a Montreal paper: \Last December, in reviewing the year 1907, we had to record a wheat harvest considerably smaller In vol. eine than in the previous year. Against ninety millions in 1906 the wheat crop of the West in 1907 only totaled some seventy-one million bushels, and much of this of inferior quality. But the price averaged high, and the total re- sult to the farmers was not unprofit- able. This year we have to record by Tar the largest wheat crop in the coun- try's history. Estimates vary as to the exact figure, but it is certainly not less than one hundred million bushels, 8.nd in all probability it reaches one hundred and ten million bushels. The quality, moreover, is good, and the price obtained very high, so that in all respects the Western harvest of 1908 has been a memorable one. The result upon the commerce and finauce of the country is already apparent. The railways are again reporting in- creases in traffic, the general trade of the community has become active after twelve months' quiet, and the banks are loosening their purse strings to meet the demand for money, The prospects for 1909 are excellent. The credit of the country never stood as high. The immigrants of 1907 and.1908 have now been absorbed into the in- dustrial and agricultural community, and wise regulations are in force to prevent too great an influx next year. Large tracts of new country will be opened up by the Grand Trunk Pacific both in East and West. If the seasons are favorable the Western wheat crop should reach one hundred and twenty million bushels. The prospects for next year seem very fair.\ An inter- esting letter is received from Cardston, Alberta (Western Canada), written to an agent of the Canadian government, any of whom will be pleased to advise correspondents of the low rates that may be allowed intending settlers. \Cardston 21st, 1908. \Dear Sir: Now that my threshing is done, and the question 'Wh4 Will the Harvest Be,' has become a cer- tainty, I wish to report to you the re- sults thereof, believing it will b4 of in- terest to you. You know •I am only a novice in the agricultural line, and do not wish you to think I am boasting because of my success, for some of my neighbors have done much better than I have, and I expect to do much bet- ter next year myself. My winter wheat went 53 bushels per acre—and graded No. 1. My spring wheat went 48% bushels per acre, and graded No. 1, My oats went 97 bushels per acre, and are fine as any oats I ever saw. My ,stock is all nice and fat, and are out In the field picking their own three square meals a day. The weather is nice and warm, no snow—and very little frost. This, in short, is an ideal country for farmers and stockmen The stock requires no shelter or win- ter feeding, and cattle fatten on this grass and make the finest kind of beef, better than corn fed cattle in Ills. Southwestern Alberta will stain be known as the farmers' paradise; and I am only sorry I did not come here five years ago.
