A few notable examples are the C. S." Noble program on the Cameron ranch, the four-section block east of New. Dayton owned by Iowa interests and the new farms in the Coaldale and Chin sections being taken up by settlers brought in by the C.P.R.' Southern Alberta is filling up with a fine class of new settlers, men with money who have faith in the future ^of the country. Let us give these newcomers every encouragement and every assistance that our part in the great production campaign with which we must back up the Allied armies may be increased to a very noticeable extent. For this ia the time when no farmer sh'ould . leave the land while every experienced farmer capable of producing who "is pot now doing bo should be encouraged (P �PPly Bla efforts in that direction. Let Southern Alberta lead the West in tha production campaign. ENFORCE THE ACT AGAINST IDLERS.

It is a very particular animal in the selection of the food which it will eat. .for many yeais European countries have used horse flesh, and in recent years markets for selling horse flesh have appeared in a number of the larger American cities. There are three market* in St. Louis where horse flesh can be purchased. A good healthy horse, sixteen years old, was slaughtered a short time ago at the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, and the meat given to persons in Columbiaivho wished to compare the taste and palatability of horse flesh. Where personB partook of the meat without being aware that it was horse meat, no objection was raised, and uniformly it was pronounced to be good meat, although a little tough and dry. Some ot these same persons, when informed that it was STORAGE OF COAL 1 FAMILY TRAGEDY . NEW WESTMINSTER New Westminster, B. C April 18.- Harry Bestwick," aged 44, shot and killed Mrs. Florence.

Premier Stewart affirmed his allegiance to the principles of Liberalism. . , "Until" said he "the time arrives when I find those principles wrong I been a strong prejudice against the use of horse flesh because of man's association with the horse. At one time it was thought a sacrilege to rob Old Dobbin of his hide before burial. That prejudice has well nigh passed away. It is doubtful if it will pay to produce horse flesh primarily for human consumption. There are many horses in the country too small for efficient service as draft animals, which in these times of meat shortage, might perhaps well be slaughtered for human food. In every large city there are many cases annually where fat young horses are injured by falling on the slippery pavement. Such animals could be slaughtered at once for food. It is far more hamane to slaughter the old family horse for food than to sell him for five or tetj. doihirs to a huckster who will half starve and mistreat him for a year or two and then turn him out to die. The horse has not been bred aa has the beef animal for the distribution of fat through the lean muscles, and a true lignite, but a better grade ot coal, and should be known' by its technical namo of sub-bituminous.
