It was then ihousht to 1^,^,. n^i^bothnm. due to the influence of tho warm Ja-,mn.iority mxn dcclm pan current, which could not possibly la accountable for the widespread Influence of this wind. It is still popularly considered to have this origin. The warm properties of the wind when it strikes the prairie on the east side of the Rocky Mountain* is thought not to bo compatible with t*ho cold of mountain altitudes, and it has been naturally concluded that it must I o simply a current of a.k*mic tem|�envturo of the Chinook. The tcmi>erntiive iA the air lowers as it eliml s the s1o|h\ but this lowering is accompanied by a condensation oi the water val>or of the air. Just us it takes heat to convert uutei into vapor, so heat is liherativl in the condensotion of vnp-" or into rain. This not only checks the lowering if t^�i|K�rntuiv( but by expansion increases the rapidity of movement ot the air. On the ea�t slope of the mountains also the force ot movement which carries tho current below super-imposing strata of i�lr subjects the travelling -to com-' prcssion by which Its tviiifsrature is ra-iMHl sci.ihe chinook is a warm _ wind. The increase in temperature is sai-d ly tniUd States weather (UUhoritHb to be one degree for each six hurKlrnl feet of descent. Tlie appearanct* oi tl.o "ohini>ok clotKls" fiopularly so called, is the condensation of vapor in the chlnook which has climbod the western slope of the divide, and is coming our way. The effect lit Jhe chinook is phenomenal. Changes in teminerature are very rapid. A rise of forty-sevea de-grtvs is recorded to have occurrexl in seven minutes in Montana, and thirty Indus of snow has been mcR-t-d or evaporated in twelve hours. Correspondingly ftreut changes have occurred in Southern Alberta. The winds come roaring down t-hc passes of the mountains in such places as Frank, with grent force. They have a hifijh rate c�thbrisljce, Macleod and Calvary. Their influence is great at Medicine Hat, and to a considerable distance farther east, ami is slightly perceptible, at Reglna. As far north as Edmonton and ev.?n into the Peace River Valley, soft, warm south-westerly winds are felt contemporaneous with the more vioL-nt wind of the south, though at these points their characteristic influence is greutly attenuated.

The Luse 1-ami Co. have been operating extensively in Manitoba ami Saskatchewan, but this is the first season they have attempted to do anything in Alberta. They have secured the option on two hundred ami fifty thousand acres in the vicinity of Stottlcr, which they are selling under contract with the C P. H. at from eight to twelve dollars per aero.

Tho company operates three private cars of its own. 'l"hcse ears a no equal in their appointments to any rolling stock in service, and yet tho rates aro exceedingly low. Over the C. P.

The rate Cor berth and board is but one dollar and a half a day, and the"*fare 4s equal to that, offered by a nrstHjlass hotel. At the forward end of tho ear is a large ami well appointed kitchen. In the main part ot the car are nine sections and a drawing room, upholstered and turniohod in the best blow the snow violently about for a time, and finally lick it all up and leave a dry prairie, though sometimes part* of ih* snow Is melted on the cround. The economic importance *�f ih-* wind* is greal. It is the chinook lhat has givin to Southern Alberta its fame as a ranch country. Cattle, horses ami sheep graze out all winter without any food except the prairie hay. which euros on the stem. Once in ten years an exceptionally hardwater occurs which decimates the herds of those who do not provide supplementary food for stock in prolonged hard weather, but generally, little hay is fed. Itonge -horses and cattle take on n heavy coat with the approach of winter. If tho Lord does not tenner the wind to the shorn lamb and tl>e cow and tho horse*,, he covers them with a suitable blanket during hard weather.  The cattle can "intuit" the wind hotter than the ei.wboy. and while still surrounded by the, frozen crust, and numb with tho studying frost,' faces the w*st, and with nose aloft heralds its coming, 'lhen they gat out on the knolls soon to bo bared, and begin to feed.
