A great deal of flour placed on the market today Is adulterated to an alarming extent. Corn is used in place of wheat because It is cheaper. When buying your flour insist on getting the genuine "Gold Mine" brand, manufactured by the Sheffield Milling Company, Faribault, Minn. They guarantee this flour to be manufactured from the highest grade northern grown wheat, and to be absolutely pure. All good grocers sell it.

Manila dispatch: American fc;te.i have been despatched to take possession of Iloilo. capital of the island of Pan ay, and the most important port in the 'hilippines after Manila. General Vliller commands the expedition, •which is composed of the Eighteenth United States and Fifty-.flrst Iowa regiments of infantry, battery G of the Sixth artillery, and a signal detachment. The expedition sailed from Manila on the transports Pennsylvania, Arizona and Newport. The transports were convoyed by the cruiser Baltimore. It is believed that the Spaniards are on the point of evacuating Iloilo. The town has been besieged for sonic time by native insnrgents,'assisted by invaders from Luzon. It is not believed that these insurgents wiU make any serious resistance to the establishment of American authority. CUBANS ON A STRIKE. Enough Wheat to Supply Britain All She Itequlrea from Abroad. Toronto, Nov. 10.—The "World" comments on the report of the United Empire trade league on the capacity of Canada as a granary for Britain. The report Manitoba as follows: Manitoba has an area of forty- seven millions acres. Deducting ten million for lako.s, rivers, town sites and waste land, 37,000,000 acres are left for farm cultivation, or homes for 116,000 families on 320 acres each, and as up to now there are only 27,000 farmers there altogether, that leaves room in one province for 89,008 more wheat growers. Supposing, then, we got them there and each one of them out of his 320 acres grew on an average 100 acres at 20 bushels to tho acre; if you figure it up you will find it is quite possible for Manitoba alone to supply us with all the wheat we require from abroad. It is only a question of money and comparatively speaking not money either. The cost of one first-class battleship (about £750,000) would put 5,000 families onto farms in the Northwest, allowing £160 to each to find them in implements, seeds, horses, etc., ar. 1 would keep them until their first crop was harvested. Five thousand farmers, averaging 100 acres of wheat each at 20 bushels to the acre, means an extra 10,000,000 bushels, for if that scheme is not liked Britain would put a duty on foreign wheat. In addition to the wheat lands of Manitoba there are the millions of acres in Assiniboia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Billy—Does your mother give yon anything if you take your medicine without crying?

SANTIAGO, Dec. 31.—The boon of employment at fair wages is, seemingly, not appreciated by Cuban laborers. The dock laborers have struck for n raise of Sfl cents a day. They were getting $1.2.") a day, which is 25 cents more than under the Spaniards. Now they refuse to go to work under SI.80. General Wood told the ringleaders if they did not instantly return to work he would import enough negro laborers from Jamaica to do the government work. As a result, several returned to work and enough were obtained to unload vessels. Twenty miles have so far been completed of the road between Santiago and Ilolguin, a distance of about 130 miles. This road, when finished, will be of great value to the military department of the province, as well as of inestimable value to the country districts.

The new plant is to be built in connection with the great teel mills at Mariopol and will cover many acres. slund of Guam to Hnvo Nnvitl Governor. WASHINGTON, Dec. 29.—The island of Guam will probably be different from ;be other colonial possessions or dependencies of the United Sta.tes in laving a naval instead of a military governor. The reason is that the sole object of the selection and acqnire- nent of the island was to obtain a conveniently located naval station for our warships, and that being the case, the navy should have exclusive control. The command will be of importance, for the island has a population of more than 8,000 people, 1,400 of whom are of European extraction. tawton Goes to the Philippines. WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.—The war department has assigned General Lawton to service in the Philippines. The assignment is considered one of exceptional importance, as Lawton, who was one of the most conspicuous officers in the campaign about Santiago, will be second in command to Otis, and in the event of Otis'sappoint- ment as governor general, will assume military command ot the forces in the Philippines. His new duties will call for a combination of nerve nnd tact. Anglo-American Agreement Ukely. WASHINGTON, Dec. 29.—It is said in official circles that indications point to the conclusion of an agreement between the joint high Canadian commissioners, that, while satisfactory to both the United States and Canada, will not conclude all that either side hoped to attain at the beginning. The arrangement is expected to be ratified within a week after the assembling of the joint commission, which will be on January 5. French Soldiers Killed. VICTOIUA, B. C.. Dec. 31.—The R. M. S.

At a dinner in London a few years Ago Mr. Gladstone was sketching a stirrintr scene in the house of commons in the early forties.

There is no longer a chance of Germany securing exclusive control."' RAISED THE FLAG. Tom O'Donnoll was telling a crowi of friends about tho Arlington cemetery in Washington. "You say there is no such thing as a good democrat,' said ]\lr. O'Donnoll; "but I saw an epitaph on one of the tombstones that dissipated a.ny such idea as that.' "What was it?" asked one of tlio listeners. "It read very simple am simply said: 'Here lies a democrat— and a good man.'
