At the same moment Al- fred Wood was being given a peni- tentiary sentence by Magistrate 'Daly, which carried with it the lash on a plea of guilty to the offenses which Tollman was under heavy bonds to answer for. The two court incidents this morn- ing is a dramatic climax of one of the most extraordinary cases in the annals of local criminal jurisprud- ence and the horror of the whole af- fair is that an innocc-nt man has not only been subjected to an avful or- deal, but he escaped by the narrow- est margin from suffering what Wood is now receiving. Tollman closely resembled Wood and was arrested some time ago and committed for trial. Other assaults, however, occurred and Wood was caught red handed two days ago. He was identified by several women whom he had attacked and a clean confession. The body of Alex Robinson, Gor- rie, Ont., was found hanging from a tree in the woods. He was simple minded.

FRIGHTENED CHINK TO DEATH Toronto, Aug. of an opera- tion for appendicitis caused the death, of Wong Yon, a young Chinaman, yesterday, who was brought to the hospital Wednesday and although the case WAS not serious the doctors de- cided to operate. He was informed of the doctor's intention and was much terrified. Everything was done to quiet him but he expired a few hours after hearing the news. of such moves. One strong reason for emigrating to western Canada is that there they have the best cheap land, that I have seen of late years in any that produces crops every .all of them as good as the best, of course, but nev- er a failure, and-the grain is of the finest quality of any part of North America, and in greater .yield' per acre than either the Dakotas or Min- nesota. The wheat grades higher than other wheat shipped to" Chica- go. I have seen oats that yielded over 100 bushels per acre, and 'that weighed 47 pounds to the bushel by test. 1 have seen 20 bushels of splen did flax to the acre, the first season it was broken, and that land cost from S12 to ?16 per acre, and less than ten miles from, a railroad sta- tion and town, all oi which affords a very good reason for some of our people emigrating. It is all very well for a man in Iowa or Illinois, who owns a I-mean has it paid stay with it and thus avoid nanny hardships, but to one of limited means, who must pay as much rent in two or three years as this Canada land will cost him to own, i would say by nil uiemis emigrate, and' at the end of a few years if you ao not like to inCanada, you will be fixed to live where you wish. I spent the latter part the sum- mer and early fall of 1906 in sotita j Saskatchewan looking at the country bordering the Canadian Pacific rail- road. 1 saw a great many fine crops of small grain, but did not see a sin- gle corn field, nor a man plowing corn with an overcoat on, of course that statement was a JOKG al- though it was not labeled. As to climate the weather was as fine as I ever saw it at the same time of year in Iowa, or anywhere. As the winter, in thc United States weather report for 1905 there is a compara- tive statement as to conditions at Sioux City, la., and a Saskatchewan town, from which I quote. The cold- ftst day at that Canadian point dur- ing the winter was .32 below zero, whilo at Sioux City the coldest day was 30'below zero. There were 21 days when the thermometer register- principal or interest. Mr. Hilliaru expressed the opinion that public opinion needs a little education on the matter oi taxing money in transit, which, he consid- prs a very unwise policy for the gov- ernment of the province or of the municipalities: Ihe tax on corpora-" tions eventually comes out of the consumer and generally with a good margin. Money is needed in this country and should be encouraged. There is no use bringing .in people to the country and then embarrass their efforts to get money. _ By" tax- ing insurance and loan companies the government and municipalities tax the losses of the people, which the companies equalize to prevent the ruin of individuals The govern- ments tax the corporation for every dollar of premium received, thereby making the policy holders pay the tax indirectly Mr. Hilliard is a prominent Me- thodist and a leading political "as well as financial man- in Western" Ontario. _ CROPS IN THE TABER DISTRICT (Staff Correspondent oi the Calgary Herald.) .Taber, July easterner, west- bound, declared as he looked from the car window over the vast expanse of .beautiful prairie west of Leth- bridge: "Land for a hundred years yet; land for everybody." It would appear so, to "be sure, but when one realizes the way they are beginning to plow he begins to be- lieve that land is really scarce. Down at Taber last year two steam plows were brought in. One of them did no- thing at all, and the other only a little. This spring six more outfits -tai-ir. JTI, and sll of them, are plowing still. Besides the steam and "gasoline outfits there are a few big concerns plowing with horses. Every farmer has taken up ,-icre short. 1 iiiiu liic irS'iitif win vc Unas they will have three acres to one this season. It is really quite remarkable the way they are reaching out on the frontier. Great'fields are being pre- pared for the sowing and at Taber and east, toward Mediciine Hat, the good work is going on in such a fashion as to make it appear quite certain that the easterner is wrong. Ii ne travels that same route three years hence he will stare in wonderment at a solid field of grain. "They this same eastern- er declared, with assurance. "That is why the fields look so fine." Rainfall in Season again. They do not irri- gate the sugar beets, even down at Raymond. The water flows through tbe main canal and runs away." The one thinig about Alberta is this that the rain falls when it is needed.

But the fall wheat on sum- mer fallowed ground is ten ahead of Cardston. Spring wheat is all hf-aded out and filling nicely, and ter by Dr. Chewier ar.d Augustc it is difficult to see how any tiling can prevent it from maturing; but spring wheat, in the "opinion of the "writer, is a bad tiling tomfool with. If the rains do not continue, those who have spring wheat will be regretting it to about 15 bushels to the The" writer was shown fields that were sown in J_une. "What time was the grass he askedN and was told that the green blade began to show itself in March and April. Six to eight weeks before the grain was sown! the Early Growth The secret of successful growing in a dry country will be found to let the grain grow when the grass grows. The grass is matured no-w- and turning brown, but the late spring sower expects nature to keep her water cart going for the sake of justifying his indolence. Although this is the first year that Taber has realized that farming will pay, the harvest there will net a snug little sum. Last year the marketed crop amounted to bushels. This year it will be twice the amount, and. next year ought to have past the quarter million mark. Country Well Settled Travellers by rail cannot begin to comprehend the extent of settlement and farming operations. The land is practically all taken up to twenty- five miles north of Taber and to that distance, and even further, it is said, the homesteaders are growing crops for seed and feed. The bridge across tbe Belly river will be completed by next year, when all this country will market at Taber. Now they are obliged to haul to Lethbridge, a wry great distance. The land is mostly beautifully level, and one can stand up in his buggy and watch the teams and steamers miles away. Tabsr Reaching Out Taber, by the way, is not to be sniffed at. Besides all these farming developments, on more to the north than in each other direction, she has" five coal mines operating, and a coal deposit of unknown extent. The town is just arousing itself, and beginning to reach for everything in sight. It was first founded by the Mormons, who purchased a section'of land and divided it into acre lots. On almost each of these lots is a. lititlc house and garden patch. The main street was, in the first instance, away to the north, half a rnile from the rail- road. Later u boom started along a street nearer to the right of way, and developed to a considerable ex- tent. At length an onterprisinig chap bought the land adjacent to the road, plotted it and sold it to town build- ers, -so that now while the city is building directly along the right of way on both sides, thc business streets wind here and there away into the country. r.m (r Then; is One describes Taber as "big- ger outside than the exact meaning of which you may constitute as a riddle to be solved. ;
