A large bottle BOc. 6 prairie from the shack to Cbipmaii a distance ol U miles, Ml owins tf the darkness, Fonhorg managed to cluile tho policeman, who arrived il Chipimm about 10 o'clock last night The. body of tlie murdered officer..... recovered at the scene of the shoot- ing and brought to Tolield by a far- mer named Thor, who lived near the Ponljerj; homo. Reports are fiomc- wiiat conflicting as lo whether the uteri -escaped during the burning of the shack gr bcfoco it took lire. At any rate, tliey were not to be found when the police closed in. It- is proh- alilc that they gathered up some clothing after _the, police went to get heavy arms and a supply of ammuni- tion after the shooting of the olh'c- ers. Lack of convenient telegraphic communication near the scene of the crime and the singe and Edmonton, makes it impossible to get very com- details. Officer Whitley, vho was wounded, is in the barracks and his recovery is assured. in order to inulw our mixed fanning ropagamla a real and living -.nieces' me of llvst problems we havo to :onuldm- iu tlio markaUnK of what nay term tile smaller iiroductB, he produce of tho dairy, the poultry ml and Inc. garden. Tile first essential to consider would be the rapid marketing of those pro- ducts iu tlio best possible condition, direct trom the producer to [ha cou" sunior. yoini! of our newcomei-H, and we shall havo newcomers with UB for nuuiy years to come, havo had exui'r- iuuce in certain lines which they can rapidly turn to account, provided tho moans of doinK so ia available. It. is moot important that these means should bo available for it out of thn prollts of tho by-products of tin farm that many a family might live in peaco and plwUy until tho larger products had time to mnterlnllic, for being largor tlicse take longer 1" coin- ing into being. It Is the small farmer and his wares that mint bu loaned alter In tha m'.xeil farming line, and it Is the iinal! or smaller farmor that will 1111 p the country and make the country nore prosperous. System will have to be evolved ill 10 marketing ot tho smaller products o obtain the very best results, and his should lead us into co-operation, vlifcli IB the very beat method for mulling the smaller products of the ivrm and them direct to onaumors at the least possible coat md with the least possible delay, Injures no one, for the gimeral tore or tho country store would prc- bo relieved of the 'biirdon of aklllK in produce In pay for Us wares mil taking tho chances ot euttliiR rid a( thorn at a profit. Co-operation could also tnlto euro of advanced mar- nnd prevent congestion. He- sides this the co-operative method en- ables tha standardizing ot the pro- luce the sorting of it and proper lacking so that It Is most attractive .0 the consumer. To moke our mixed farming pay we shall need at once the local market In our larger towns and cities, not only one market but city lot markets scattered about the different pre- cincts under proper supervision where consumers can buy vegetables, fruit, butter, fresh cheese or what not, de- livered by the producers fresh from the farms anfl Bold at a moderate price In the best possible condition. We are' behind In a" lbDSO matters nnd too many of us are too proud to do our marketing ourselves, so use the telephones anil pay accordingly. We should take some leaves ont-of tho books of other countries, becom- ing more thrifty and help, out tho farmers by buying direct from them. Perhaps the greatest channel of all be the Parcel Post or Parcel Ex- press. This parcel post has 'been growlr cost of shippine the Biiia 1 parce y i and tho mora r; :IOP that there are men, and good men, .son o. his CREATING NEW POSITIONS Ottawa, April Robert Rogers tonight gave notice of a re solution, providing that it is expedient to incorporate the National Gallery of Canada, and to 'transfer its pro- perty to and vest it in a hoard ol trusteen for tho government, .this board to be authorized to purchase pictures, statuary, works' of., art, etc. and to be remunerated.

This also means thoy liavt stand- urdlzc their products, so lluit tin- buyer cnn rely upon a steady supply of products of uniform quality. The United Slatos authorltloK are ilready making this possible iu tlu'lr parcel post operations by Introducing '.lie C. O. D. system. Just a post card sent to the city by the farmer ami a package corned out CX O. IJ.; Just a can! from tho city tfwcllPr to the farmer, and some fresh Imtter and CSBB go into town C. O. It. If the farmer sends in for a dozen yards cheese cloth ho knows that what lie orders will conic out-, it thn position Is reversed, the city dwolier would be just as sure what the butter and eggs will be like when they arrive. This IB just what of tho farm product means, ami" It should be just as reliable one way as the other. All that it needs is a com- plete change in our methods, rapid trnvistt at a lower rate, co-operation and method in marketing, with stan- dards lor everything that we can all go by. Under the C. O. U. system, Ihe farmer Is pretty sure to eel pay fir his products and the city dweller who sends the money for some butter and osgs will get the butter and OSRB. It the butter and eggs arc bad, the far- mer lose-i the trade, if good he in- creases his business. This later will leod us up lo great er postal banking facilities, but this is too great it subject to talie hold ol now in tho short time at our disposal but there is no good reason why tlie postal bank should not be adjunct to the parcel post, nnd would develop with it as postal 'bank cheques could bo used in payment tor goods. Considerahlo power has been left in the hands ot the United States Post master-General, in order that he cai amend conditions and make addition to 'the service In the interest of tli public, It having been recognized tha the making or lowering of rates an the changes in other lines are no legislative, but administrative- func- tions. This saves a great deal of time and rapidly helps to improve the system without subniitling of little changes to parliamentary procedure rind conseaitant 'delays. The development of business be- tween tho producer and consumer tll- rect will depend a good deal upon the 1 personal relations established. This has been factor in the devel- opment of tho business of raising and selling of pure-bred stock, and those have followed that game know that .It 13 fry -satisfaction given and guaranteed that customers are added I to the list, and the satisfied custom- are the beat advertisers for the j seller.

We require uniform quantl- les of uniform quality in sufficient Iliantity to build up regular markets, and obtain thn best prices. And if such products were available In any sort of regularity at town or city lo- markets, or on farms where they jould be shipped by parcel post these troducts would sell.

Toronto, April changes wore made In tho personnel of tlio committee on privileges anil elections whioh is to consider the charges ag- ainst the Premier and the Provincial Secretary, wllon tho LosiBlaturo met this afternoon. In view of the fact that tho cabinet ministers in tho com- mittee all had refused to serve. Sir James Whitney announced the new government appointees as Messrs. McKeovvn, Morel, McCTco, Ferguson and Preston. Two resignations from the commit- tee on tho opposition side wero an- nounced by Mr. Rowoll: Mr. Proud- foot, who pressed the charge, had signified his desire to -retire as a Southern Alberta ot ours but have abandoned It because they could not get their produce from sarden o the city con3umer t a cost. Think what a check this is OUT development.

TERMS CASH W. L, WILSON, Auct. from the farm at a cost that would malce them available. The 'greatest trouble with our pres- ent system, or want of system, is the waste of it all, for there is, as a rule enough going to waste in Alberta to mate quite a difference in the general j about by poor marketing methods and the high cost of transportation not only in Alberta, but all over Canada. If the city dweller could order of dressed fo-wls or a dozen eggs from a farmer friend, to be sent at once by post at a-cheap rate, it would nol only be a great convenience to the M eller in the city, but would soon be a great source profit to the farmer, increasing the trade by leaps and bound's. Now 'this brings us to another matter that "requires to bo taken up by the farmer. The gen- eral rule, is the one business man that does not spend any money ta pJace his wares before his customers. The introduction of cheaper parcol post woult1 necessitate this and the method has 'been in practice for time by the breeder of pure-bred stock, poultry, fruit, etc. In the farming and country papers we. read maiiv advarUnameiUs of those who is limited, and a doubtful quantity The more we study the parcel pos and its possibilities, the greater thi subject becomes.
