If the north 'branch -can be made navigable as far up as Edmonton, there is no apparent reason why the south branch could not be made navigable up -be- yond Medicine Hat, at least to the junction -of the Bow and Belly rivers. OUR POINT OF VIEW. Teddy Roosevelt wants to watch out, or he will lose the anti-cigarette vote. Geo. Heathershaw's thirty bushels to the acre crop at Magrath is re- markable for a dry season. If there been moisture one elevator might not have been able to hold the crop from the thousand acres. This year's grain is already -being taken tosNew Dayton's elevators. Not long ago, one would have thought the elevators there would not have opened this season. A fair crop this year proves good farming stands the test- thai Southern Alberta may not have as much grain 33 usual this ysar, but the quality is up to ihe usual stand- ard. From Other Sanctums The difference between the tariff agitation in Canada and Britain lies in the .fact that in the former the agi- tators want to reform it, and in the lat ter to deform it. CRITICISM ANSWERED. Some people have criticizing the Herald for giving such crop re- ports as it is They al- lege that these reports are giving a idea' of the real conditions that exist, and thereby the country is be- ing injured. The Herald -does net believe that --the criticism is just or right. We nave never maintained that the crop in the greater part of Southern Alberta is not a practical failure. It ias .been careful to state this fact It has reported from time to time that there are many good crops in almost every locality and will continue to do so. In doing so, it is not -the Herald's purpose to gloss over the situation as it exists, rather to make plain two facts. One is that even, in such a year as this the soil of Southern Al- fcerta will produce some -crop. If it produce any crop "at all in a year as this, it can. -be depended on. to produce' much better crops when are more' favorable, and hence, the only Inference' is that this district is a safe agricultural country. The other fact that the Herald is trying to" make plain is that good farm ing pays: Farmers who have given their land careful and 'intelligent- cul: tivation have almost invariably got some crop that is worth while, while the 'man who has been careless and Haphazard -in his methods has a fail- ure to record- In proving these two things, the- crop failure of this year, while hard on a great many individuals -will, in! the long run, be a great benefit to j the -whole community. In pursuing this course, the Herald it is serving this country a great "deal better than by allowing the reports of an absolute failure to .go un- challeneged and undenied. As far as its knowledge goes tihe Herald is publishing nothing that Is untrue, and all that is true, and in doing so be- lieves it is following the right course. While fighting bush fires may not appeal to 'the imagination of the Mon- tana soldiers, they will know that their fighting operations are for the purpose of saving instead of destroy- ing life as it would -be on the battle- field. It is no disgrace, but rather" an hon- or to show-other people what yon think is a good thing. 'Bring any- thing good you have to the fair. En- tries close'Saturday night. There are always a lot of people at the fair who are heard to exclaim: have "better than, that at home. If I had thought it -would have won a prize I would have showed it-" Do not make that mistake this year. Bring along your stuff. The Lethbridge fair is attaining some considerable class, when places as far away as W-etasMwln make community exhibits. Tiiat is a good of exhibit to encourage. The agricultural society directors are very much in earnest in their ef- lorts to make the Lethibridge fair the best yet But they wfll need the co- operation of every citizen to nave their laudable purpose fulfilled. Teddy Roosevelt's daughter in try- ing to follow her illustrious father's example, is riding over precedents and set fastuons, is finding just as much, opposition as ihe. The differ- ence is that she is wrong, he is generally rigit. The 'Chinese liave found out the Americans' tender spot, and when they are not used right, they just threaten to 'boycott American goods. That nas a great effect. BEST BRAINS !N CERTAIN CENTRES. There has 'been an uproar in On- tario over the examination papers iplaced before -the public school pupils seeking entrance to the High School. condemnation has ibeen heap- ed upon the Department- of Education and it is now reported that-pupils
