The people up north, of Calgary hav- ing got dt into their heads that there is a scarcity of feed lor stock in .the south are squeezing the stock men for high prices. Mrs. Graham, the well- known iady rancher of the Little Bow district went up north a few days ago to negotiate ior bay for her horses and found that tfee price asked for s. ton of hay was exactly -the price per acre asked for land.

Though looked upon as 2. Re- publican paper, it has put the light of day on 'boodling Republicans, as well Democrats, and to-day there is an upheaval of public opinion against the grafters, and a clean up is sure to take place at the forthcoming state The Tribune is fearless in. its at- tack, it doesn't mince words, as the following paragraph at the head of an article making soiae exposures a few- days ago will indicate: "In all human probability every man who is in any way connected the following tale will deny the truth of the statements made there- in- Anticipating these denials the Tribune desires to say that such den- ials will be lies."

Quite an impetus was given to the business of movin Houses to-day, when the eight-roomed cement house at Xo. 420 Danforth av- enue. occupied -by W. H. Edwards. was moved fifty feet westward in order to make room for a new street that is to oe cut northward from Dan- forth avenue, ietween Eaton and Langforth streets. The house is a cement one, and marks an epoch. this being the first time that a cement house has -been, moved in Canada, so far as is known. A Big Job. To move the ordinary house only about thirty to forty jacks are used, in this case over ninety were re- quisitioned. The process wes neces- sarily complicated, but was admirably carried out -without a -crack appearing anywhere in. the cement blocks. foundation also of cement The Mr. John E. Russell, contractor, was in charge of the operations. The ihouse, together with tie rest of 'the property in the- vicinity, is own- ed by Mr. David Warwick, who is op- ening up the new street, which will known as Woodcrest street, and will run back feet to a distance of alxmt 300 feet from Randolph street Ultimately the new street "will -proba- bly be continued through to Randolph.

At the good roads convention Jseld at Niagara (Falls, N. T., last week the economic value of having good roads emphasized. One speaker claim- ed that if the roads in America -were as good as those in Europe, the farm ers on this continent save two hundred and twenty-five million dol- lars flauling their produce to market, besides the saving they would make in hauling their purchases 'back to. their farms from the towns. In ad- dition to these savings would .be those in the cost of repairing and replac- ing harness, wagons, etc., and in the investment and care of extra draught stock. Good roads save a farmer fif- teen cents a mile. With a good road -who lived fifteen miles from shipping station "was better off than one who lived five miles away on a poor road. Other speakers claimed that it is to good roads rather than railroads and canals that tbe country must look for its development The poorest roads are the. most expensive, and vice versa, the best roads are f.he Tnosl ec- onomical. It was claimed, with good arguments to -back up the claim, that establishment of good roads would in a great measure solve the 'high price of necessities of life and ther Increasing cost oZ living. j about it.
