The second of the series of speclel articles on the crops in SoutliCTn AI-hoi'ta. covers the results of observa-titns made by tlie Herald representa-tlvo along the Oardston branch of the G. P. R. Every carp was taken to get Ihe most reliable Information possible and facts set forth, or conclusions reached, are based on the statements of men who know j\iat what they nre talking about. Every care v,�s taken to give the professional booster a wide berth, and the men Interviewed have nearly all been In the country for some years, their experiences consequently being of genuine value. Many of the oonditfons found on the Coutls branch are duplicated on the Cardslon line, but In many respects there is a distinct difference, some of the features being aa .improvement; others the rivenie. Insofar as weeds are concerned, tiho Herald man could not see that the Kilualion wa.8 much worse with the exception of mustard which is v�iry heavy in spots, especially at .Spring Coulee. This seem.s to be in accord with the eternal fitness of things for tradition, rumor or gossip gives Spring Coulee the discredit for Introducing wild mustard to Southern Alberta. Be that as it may, there is no dcuht as to the presence and the prolific tendencies of mustard, and if Spring Coulee, gave the evil Its start the district is certainly reaping a full measure of rotribution for the yfellow flower flGuriahos in, that district. The farnior may be charged with carelessness In allowing the weeds to get such a Htart, but -he must also ho credited with having fully awakened to the menace which threatens the productiveness of his farm and which renders abortlvs at least one-third of his efforts. Irriguted lauds should he free from weeds, for it has been amply demonstrated Wiat lucerne will kill them with the possible exception of Canadian thistle. Like everything Canadian, the native thistle is of the hardy variety, Russian thistle and mustard are easily choked by alfalfa. Summer Fallowing Increased Summer fallowing is largely ' in-I creased, and if the weeds are reepon-I aible that is one blessing to chalk up ; to the credit of the weeds. Fully fifty i per cent, of the land is heing plowed ; this year in the hope of helping destroy the pest. It helps some but the curse is there In the shape of the neighboring field bearing a prolific crop, ripening and waiting for the too frequent high winds to carry send across the fence onto the aewly plow-j e "rooting" land, and a. n�t profit is shown of $80ft. Who siivk th> Entitled "The Helping Hand' This is a prodiiotion of tho. vary highest class, fitll of heart interest, picturing human nature in many phases and is decidedly a picture to see.

This match is, without exception, the most exciting and strenuous ever pulled off, and raised universal interest throughout the sporting world. The late Duke of Sutherland purchased over thirty polo ponies i throughout the leugth and breadth of i Europe, costing over one million dol-larB_ in his unsuccessful attempt to bring the coveted trophy back to England. An equal amount was spent by the defenders of the cup. The match was characterized 'by the beSt of feeling and sportsmanship on both aides. The film comes very highly recommended, the particulars of the game being very clearly shown from start to finish. * * * "The Master Cracksman" at Starland Starting today, for two days only will be seen at Starland the big Broadway production, "The Master Cracksman."

OAST OF CHARACTERS, Robert Thatcher.......Ralph Lewis Robert, His Son . ,.

George-De Carleton Robert Thatcher invents a device to protect banks from thieves. This is bought up for a few thousands by Thomas, who later makes a million out of Thatcher's Invention. Thatcher discovering a weakness in his system, perfects this, and when he offers the perfect invention to Thomas for $50,000, his offer is refused, and he is ordered out of the office. This breaks his heart and he dies in poverty. His young son, Robert, about to finish his course at the Institute of Technology, discovers the truth about the Thomas patent^ and how his father was cheated. He gets work in the Thomas shops and deliberately sets about to prove the weakness of the "Safe Protective" system. "When he gains all the knowledge he needs -he sets out to break every bank carrying the Thomas syetem. His little sweetheart, "Madge, afraid to let him go alone, accompanies him, attired in 'boy's suit and cap. The Thomas people receive reports from, all their protected banks-telling of a mysterious cracksman, who, with master hand, opens every sate, proving that the Thomas system has a flaw. But, strange to relate_ the bank breaker steals not a -cent. A det�ctive Is put on the case, and one night he apprehends Robert and his little "pal" in the act of breaking into the Sho� and Leather Bank. The gin breaks down and Robert tells their story to the detective, whose sympathy is awakened. He goes to Thomas and tells him that unless Robert is given $50,000. and a share in the buBlnese created by his father's invention, he will spread the atoiy broadcast through the medium of the press. Tljomas is forced to agree to this demand, and Robert comes into his own at last. Better Than Ever One of the best comedy acts that has ever played Lethbridge is at the Morris Theatre, the last half of this week. Sherman and Fuller, comedy acrobats, are one scream from the time they come on the stage until they leave it. Both members of the team do some very clever feats, with comedy intermingled, that keeps the audience in one continual roar of laughter. Gerald Griffin, the Irish terror, has a very sweet voice, and puts over some' splendid yarns on tlie Irish. The feature picture was a tivo-reel Bison, entitled "The Massacre of the Fourth Caval'ry," and was so greatly ac-jreciated that the ,management has Monarch Theatre TONIGHT THE LITTLE PEA.CEMAKER AUNT KATE'S MISTAKE.
