The only way for an intending set

of the land office in the district in
which the land is situated, and then
make a personal examination oithe

desirable government land having
been appropriated lone ago, the in
tending settler in nine cases out of
ten will probably find it cheaper to
buy a farm already improved or par
tiallv improved, than to avail him
self of the generosity of the United
States government. Still there are
doubtless some good tracts lett.

The London Lancet has au article
in a recent number in which it pre
dicts the passing of the broom and
predicts that its place will be taken
in every household by the vacuum
cleaner. The broom, it says, is
likely to become as obsolete as the
copper warming pan. The reason
for this is that bacteriologists have
decided that sweeping does more
harm than good, and to raise a dust
is to take the chances of filling the
lungs with all sorts of disease germs.
