He � months In adyanea:.74e^ the business like Policy THE CRUX of the situation in connection with the expendi-, ture Of money on Henderson Pafic lies in the necessity of making it the play ground of tile city in order to create traffic for !the street car sj^steni. It Is the policy followed in other cities and there is no reason for supposing that Lethbridge, as yet a city of short distances, can hope to make,revenue and expenditure meet with the street cars unless an. exceptional summer t]*affic is created. Toronto has its Scarboro Beach, Hamilton has ifjS Bay and Mountain retreats, London its park at the springs, V (jfttavva: its'RotJdiflFe and Britannia Parks, Montreal its suburban V p|u:ks by the. do^soj. and, they all do much to swell the street car Tflle^pts, even though the systems are operated by private com-]gan]es. ,-The-fact that street railway companies composed of siienilike Sir "William. Mackenzie, Hon. J. M. Gibson, W. Y. Sop-l^j'Senator GoJt-and other transportation, magnates, deem it necessary in large.cities to go" after the summer traflSc by means ;o�i5attractiyc;;subuPban,parks, how much more necessary is it in a small city JUke-Lethbridge'tliat there should be every possible atirdcHon provi'df4-to encourage the people to use the cars.

One ' can scarcely conceive the Irbmendous increase which' would b6 effected in,Alberta if the breed6rs prevtiuted? the slaughter of calves. Think over the calninity of a: province like Alberta permitting New Zetland' butter to be sold in large quantities thrdugholil "ihe province, and even in Toronto; then don?t kill the calves.. Veal, no doxibt, forms an agreeable change in the daily diet But in llie state the cattle industry.of the province is^ at present there will be not much of hai'dship; entailed by'the institution of^ a self-denying ordinance with regard, to its consiimplion. We are all of nis-willing to see a plentiful-supplyoFbeef, in the province, and, ns consumers, must be excused-in the anticipation'that tills will mean lower prices. Until such'time'.arrives wc; ought to be willing to forego a luxury, or, at any rate, reserve it for such rare occasions as the return of a prodigal Son. The new era of mixed farming has uilrea^y. dawned, and to bring the same to a happy consummation;farmers would'dp well to study the hints which ;men like ilr. Richardson are siipplying them. To quote from him again Ifet us- conclude by bringing to the attention ofTarifnefs ihe following little ipleceAvhich ought to fvtrnish the desii-ed encouragement in egg-raising:.. A few months ago a large commission firm purchased 75 carloads of eggs in a.day, and yet did not have suflicient to stlpply their orders. Hundreds of thousands of good Alberta dollars are sent to Eastern Canada and the United States each year for eggs and poultry. Oats at 20c.. Avheat at le,ss than 50c., eggs selling at from ^Oc to 50c a dozen, and poultry from 16c to 25c a polmd, there must be a handsome margin of profit in a coimti-y particularly, adapted for the economical raising of poiiltry. If the farmers of Alberta would each keep from 50 to 200 hens the money now sent oiit of the province would remove anxiety and want from' inany a home,- and-provide luxuries now considered out of the question: We should be supplying eggs and poul-- : ti-y in carloads to points outside of Alberta. Keep your, calyes, and add to your hens, are two useful mottoes for the farmers of Southern Alberta. OUR POINT OF VIEW Leader Michener complains, that his cause suifered from a ack of speakei-s who.understood the issues. Whom is he drivr ing at? What would ^thepeppie of Canada say if one of the members of the government was caught at the gambling table and robbed of state documents by the petticoated fratternity. , Mr. Borden can hardly hope to ^et his ,Navy Bill through the Senate when he resorts to the gag'law tOj^OTt-it tlu-ough tlie Real Estate and Investments Owners of MQ r n i n gs ide 111-115 Sherlock Bldg.

The Herald, however, Ifefhses to believe any such croakingand thinks it-would be good bjjsiness to do everything witliin reason to build up ti'aGRc for iite; Street car system. MORE DTSULTS FOR AMERICANS PpHE TORY PRESS and Tory leaders seem to hate the Ameri-^|!.;can settler. Why the Herald-does not know. But if it. is nptiRiB. Bennett wljo is slurring them, it is someone else. Here insult from the Toronto Telegram, one. of Pre-ji^lei? ;Borden'� staimchest supporters In the east:  \a "Alberta produces k provincial result that spells .vii; disappom to Laurier hop^s of sweeping the West If the Borden government can be forced to the country. ; A parly that c.annot do better than thfe Alberta Liberals -,^ did with a govei'nment at its J)ack will be almost anni- liilated when it hasvtdflght a* a'federed opposition. / "A few Bunke? HiU constituencies of scattered Am-Alberta and�Saskatche'Wan.will not enable I Sir.Wilfrid Laurier to sweep^the West, much less to tri-uraph in Canada." ^ Why should these insults b6 hurled at former Americans by oTpry leaders and papers because, perhaps, a majority of the new - guttlers vote Liberal? Why doesuM.Mr. Borden call in liis immigration agents in the States if these settlers are so obnoxious? ^d saddest of all, despite these oft-repeated insults, there are _ jiftany Americans who hue up with the Telegram and the Ben-f-lpjfttts.at the polls,, Both attitudes areincapable of explanation. li^lv TWO GOOD PIECES OF ADVICE F'HE APRIL number of the Nor'-West Farmer contains a; very ~i{4n8ible article, from the pen of E.L. Richardson, Secretary F;th'e Alberta L^e Stock-Associations. It refers to the kilting "calves, and?at a,time when meat is scarce, and prices corres-j^dingly high, it comes at an opportune time.
