become conspicuous by massing In
Fig. 3. This form of flewer cluster,
which is constant and characteristic
of the whole carrot or parsnip family,
is known as an umbel, hence the
scientific designation of the group is
Umbeliferae. The peculiarity of the
umbel is that all the flower stalks
start from the same point, and at
taining the same height the flowers
form a flat-topped group. In this
case closer study reveals the fact
that the umbel is double, each pri
mary flower-stalk has a number of
secondary stalks with its flower. Its
compound leaves are coarse, much
cut, and the lower portion of the
leaf-stalk . developed into a large,
sheathing, stipule-like enlargement.
The stem is hollow and it and all the
rest of the plant beset with abundant
Fig. 3. A little search will dis
cover flower clusters that have
dropped their floral parts and the
pistils have developed into the fruit
or seed pods. The classification of
the members of this large group is
based on the shapes of these pods and
the presence and disposition of oil
tubes in the walls. It is the oil in
these tubes which produces the pro
nounced odors characteristic of many
of these plants, aromatic and pleasant
in some cases, as dill and anise, or
rank and unpleasant in others.

ence possibly to the size of the plant.
. In this family are to be found
some of the valuable food plants,
such as carrot, anise, caraway, dill
and the like. Since there is but little
variation in the flowers and the
classification must be made entirely
by the use of the fruit, this group is
usually shunned by the beginner.
Another Interesting and attractive
member of this family is the gild
carrot, or Queen Anne's Lace, Fig. 4,
sometimes also called Bird's Nest,
from a peculiar manner in which the
flowers cluster rolls up when the
fruit ripens. Nature has a purpose in
this for when the plant is old these
clusters drop off and caught by the
wind they are rolled along over the
ground scattering the ripe seeds far
and near. This is but one of the
many interesting devices which n
ture provides for the dissemination of
seeds and may furnish an interesting
topic of study to the nature lover.
The Goat's Beard. Aruneus, is an
other of the shrub-like herbs, al
though its kinship is widely separ
ated from these others as it belongs
to the rose family, strange as it may
seem to the casual observer. In the
early spring it, too, pushed its way
out of the dark soil, and, assiduously
growing, has attained its consider
able stature only to fall and decay
at the close of the season. It has
been hanging out its snakey white
curls, its flower clusters, for some
time and is now nearly passed, leav
ing its ripening seed pods and its big.
doubly compound leaves whose leaf
lets are arranged on each side of the
axis like the parts of a feather. It
is playing its part in preserving the
balance by consuming the carbon di
oxide gas, poisonous to animals and
returning the oxygen necessary for
all living things. But what is the
meaning of luxuriant leaf growth
and strange flower cluster is part of
that great riddle whose answer no
man as yet knoweth.

-Despite Ice and Snow and
EDMONTON. Alta. JnJIro Wada
has always played a lone hand. Up
and down the northern fringes of
civilization, he baa pioneered for 30
years. He has been in the thick of
every gold rush from the Klondve to
Hanson creek. He la an expert trap
per, huntdr, cook, prospector and dog
team driver. From Athabasca to the
mouth of the Mackenzie, all old
timers know the lUtle yellow wilder
ness adventurer. . -
Soon after the discovery of a
gusher well t Fort Norman lart fall,
winter closed the trails to the new
oil -bonanza on the Mackenzie. But it
did not shut out Jujiro Wada. Ice
and snow and howling blizzards have
no terrors for him. Employed by
Vancouver capitalists to go to Fort
Norman and stake claims for them,
he struck out from Peace River with
a team of dogs in the dead of winter.
For 1200 miles he mushed alone
through the frozen, wolf-haunted sol
itudes, staked his claims and came
back across the snow to Peace River.
Now he has been employee! by a
New York syndicate to go to the top
ot the world on a hunt for gold. A
rumor has long been bruited about
the Arctic that Hershel island con
ceals rich gold deposits. Except for
a post of the Hudson's Bay company,
now closing out its rich prairie farm
lands to settlers but still pushing
farther into northern fastnesses in
search of furs, the island is uninhab
ited. The little Jap will soon leave
for the -north prepared to spend at
least a year on this thunder-riven,
desolate rock in the Arctic seas. If
he uncovers treasure, there will be
no delay in bringing out samples. No
matter if it is SO degrees below, Ju
jiro Wada will harness up his mala
mutes and break trail back toward
civilization. That's his way.
