LONDON, Dec. 20. — The Times an* Bounces that Commissioner Smith, of the Salvation Army, has resigned. Hia resignation, the paper says, at this critical period in the history of the army is most important because Mr. Smith formed the substantial guaranty that an earnest and business-like effort would bo made, to execute the practicable part of General Booth's scheme of Bocial regeneration. The Times says the secret axtthorship of "In Darkest England" is now common knowledge, but tho charitable hypothesis; assails General Month credit for having- written at least two chapters of the book, (leneral Booth's explanation is that he supplied a professional •writer with materials for the book. We believe that when the whole Btory is revealed it will be found that the. .substantial parts of the scheme of city and farm colonies originated with Mr. Smith. General Jtootli, reluctantly accepting these, asserts that the ground ol! difference between Mr. Smith and himself is that while Commissioner Smith opined that it was absolutely necessary to keep the social workuiff scheme as distinct as possible from tho religious work of the army General 1 Sooth's method of inviting donations despite his apparent 'willingness lends to the mingling of all separate funds into one common fund, rendering- it obvious that every contribution to a specific department sets a proportionate amount of tho general fund free to bo spent at the discretion of General Hooth. Nothing but a sense of duty, the Times continues, could have induced Commissioner Smith to resign at such an important .-juncture. There must be something wrong with the scheme or the management of the funds. Those who promised donations are now entitled to withhold them until a full and satisfactory account of Mr. Smith's resignation is given. Jle was the life and soul of the social-reform wing of the army. It is likely that his resignation is destined to be the death blow to General Booth's more ambitious schemes. ALL ASKED TO COME.

Marshal Booth finally corralled them in an alley and by a liberal display of arms placed them under arrest, lie marched them up tho. street half a block when they broke away and began firing- at him. The officer, however, was too quick for the desperadoes and sent an unerring- bullet into the head of John Kane, who fell dead. The other brothers then turned a corner and attempted to escape up the railroad track toward Uulufch. Marshal Ifooth followed, firing- as fast as he could cock his revolver, and finally planted a leaden inis.sile in the back of Peter Kane's head. He died from the wound during the afternoon.

Lopez was mentioned fa\ connection with th« census report last Jtoc on account of afo extreme old age. GOLD PROM FARM-LANDS. YOU fl n ct land of inexhaustible fertility and well watered, and at the same time easily worked, being prepared by natnn f CT the plow, yow may reasonably expect to find farming 1 a profitable occupation nndthe farmers in ;uch a country making more than a bare living 1 . Agriculttn-c in uuch a country is like mining—simply taking tfcld from the soil in tho shapo of the finer grades of wheat and other cereals, and it possesses tho great adva,ntago over mining 1 , that the amount of actual work neees fcary to make fi pay is comparatively very small. Upon the great fertile prairies of "Western Canada, where millions of a^rcs o*' the richest land in tho world are comprised within tho Provinces of Mani- itoba, Assiniboia, Alberta, etc., settlers,, oM and naw, have simply taken gold' from tho ground in the shape of magnificent crops for tho season of 1890. Their gold is golclon grain, but it. yields as sure returns as any metal eve* mined. Tho writer visited farm after farm in Manitoba the past season where the yield of wheat averaged from 80 to 30 bushels per acre, and where- oats yielded frequently 75 bushels per acre of choice grain. Upon ono farm of 1,800 acres, the crop of wheat and oats, was close to (50,000 bushels, and of this the first lot of 20,000 bushels of wheat, was sold for 8-lc and OOc per bushel. Close beside this large farm was a small, one from which tho owner had taker his first crop. lie had ntartcd •<" .ch no capital the year before, yet his crop of wheat was 1,000 bushels and the quality- was so good that he got 8.~>a per bushel for it, one cent a bushel more than his. wealthy neighbor, v.-liich. meant just- 8850 for lus first season in wheat alone. With a climate peculiarly adapted to grain-growing, and a population representing nearly every nation, "Western, Canada offers to the settler a most, favorable chance to succeed among 1 friends or fellow countrymen of his own. « THERE are many idol words in tho language of tho heathen.—Pittsburgh.
