DAVIS, General Agent, Winnipeg. thbridge as Seen by a Special Commissioner The special commissioner of the "Canadian Gazette" in Canada who vrote a sciies of articles on "The Storj' of lieal Estate in Canada, Openings for British Investors", had the following in reference to Letli-hndgp;- Southern Alberta is one immense coal field. Liiiiiitc, bituminous, semi-bituminous, and anthracite ream Alberta through an area estimated to cover IS.aSS s^iuare milts and to produce ninety billion tons of coal. Lcthbridge is the coal, dty-farroing and commercial centre, of Southern Alberta. Situated at the gateway of the Crows Xcst Pass into the Ilock-ips, it is interesting to note what the railway genii think of t^e present power and future prospects of this beautiful city. The Newc.istlc of the West Railroads enter and proceed from Lethbvidge in six directions, ccntrcl-llng distribwtion within a rviius cf 680 miles. The three great trunk railwavs are obviously all of ons mind- The Grand Trunk is building a line to Lethbridge from the north, the Canadian Northern one line from the north and another from the east. The Canadian Pacific pays Lethbridge the compliment of providing still another line tro'ni the east, and has lately taken over the Alberta Railway and Irrigation company, now dealing with an irrigation system �planned to supply a disuict of 200,-000 acres. , In the yeaf 1910 the coal mines in t^ie Vicinity of Lethbridge and up the Groves Nest Pass line tributary to Lethbridge yielded over six million tons of coal, more than one-half the total production of the Dominion for the year; The pay-roll of the men ttMinectcd with the mining and ship-fcng industry of this valuable product averages $750,000. Wiihin thi n?ar distributing area of Lethbridge seven coal mines are mining and shipping coal to Montana, Washing-tDUf etc., and, the coke ovens produced 363,318 tons of coke for the ttse of the smelters of British Columbia and' the Western States of Am-' erica. -heat raiser took his insurance money to Montana and brought back sheep to his Lethbridge farm. Through the winter they fattened on the hailed .-wheat. Tn the spring, out of lambs and wool, he made a great profit over his investment, and still possessed the original sheep. Barley, oats, fiax, and roots give a fine yield, and this easily grown raw COLLIDED WITH STREET CAR Toronto, April 29.-A�'a result Of the collision between a street car and automobile last night, Albert E. Brltttell died early this morning. Hazel Ooad Is not expected to live, and Mrs A. E. Britnell and Edward Brlt-nel! a're in a very dangerous condition. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? produce should command a great supply of bccf, pork, poultry, cheese, eggs and butter. Conditions of un-u.sual convenience and opportunity invite the market gardener of small capital. Irrigated tracts of gar-len lands from ten to twenty acres in extent, and varying in price from $75 to $150 ppr acre, can be purchased in the immediate vicinity of the city. Raw material, with the attendant conveniences of cheap fuel and power, and ample transportation and distribution facilities, invite the British investor to take active part in the industrial phase ot the development of a great city of-Canada. Very specially needed are Portland cement mills, glass bottle works, a malting plant, flour mills, windmills and pumps, gasoliiiC tractors, steel and iron works, and pressed brick and clay products. The promise of such industrial enterprise is revealed in the history of the Lcthbririce Brick and Terra Cotta company. It started operations lo the music of the croak cf many ravens and with -a very small capital. At first it turned put one and a half million bricks and employed fifteen men. Already it' has advanced to a capacity of seven million bricks, giving employment to forty people and distributing' seven thousand dollars per month in wagfis and supplies, and practically the whole of this amount is spent and invested in Lethbridge. Lastly be it noted that th's industrial centre, controlling the distribution of coal by sis railroads, is one of the fairest and most pleasing cities in Canada. The park and boulevard system is a gift to poster ty from the careful and far-seeng City Fathers of the Lethbridge of today. The streets are one hundred feet wide and bordered with boulevards of lawn grass planted with avenues of shady trees. AgriculturCj the black industry and commerce unite to admit "the beautiful neccss ty" to the place of honor in the midst cf a combination of fore s which forecasts Lethbridge for a city of immense wealth. nHOLDIB CLARKE & CO.

In' addition to tlie multifarious attractions to the agriciiltufalist from all parts of the world, a special feature of the expo^itiou which will be of immeiise educational value to the farmer and land economist, will be the congresses and convehtious which are being arranged for the discussion of agricultural and land problems.
