The Morning Bath is recognizod generally aS' u great harbinger of hi-alth, anil when it can be taken amid sanitary surroundings it becomes a luxurious necessity.

So tlic . fan ual tc�t� by Calgtii'y mitk'i'.s nhoW ft to be quite the offiinl of Hsd Fyfefor Viiead-innking, both In ?|uulily and strength. Just what ihc Introduction of "Alberta KctI" into .VIberlu h�.s donofor tho province cannot be accurately estimated. To anyone who travelled over tfie country from Calvary to Maclcotl IjcfoiX! its Introduotion and who again mmkcs the jouiwy in tiu-. year 1907, tha change is quite Rvi-iient, and is indeed imirvellous. The towns of Okotoks and High River were barely 'n oxiKtence and the other places on the line vvoi'o only stations or watering tanks. Nowi we see pros|icroiis towns every few nilli?* and elf\utor8 at every station, and at some .s'everal of thern and ail unable to handle the crops. The in -troduction of hard winter whon/t ha.s not done it all. But it certainly must be given a great share of the credit, and probably a greater share than any other single factor. The growing of soft wheat has also taken a lH>�)m in recent yearH. The gi-eater [lart of the scttlemont �-roumi Didsbury is cotiiposod of farmers from Waterloo County, Ont., who haed in large quantities on the l^cifie Coast and in other countries not fwlaptod to hard wjieat. HlHivl wi'ii'ter wheat of the ciuaMit.y of �.Mlx-rta fled" can only lie produced in a few favorite countries. It is, thorol'oiv, an artic^le that will ahvnys )k! in demand at top price; w^ivus the poorer grades are more subject lo o\'er-product.ion' and glutted market. It is a wheat, that is worth more than 'Its actual milling value, as on account of its great sti-ength it is used to grade up .weaker flours. There is a grwit ncad for sudi wheat in the Oriental mnrkot, as the wheat produced on the Pacific Coast and in Manchuria is so starchy as to |je almost useless for broad making. Then too the Oriental dcniaiul which is now tor low grade flour, w-ll liecome nioiw exacting as the yrn .MK'pta.

IJiie.hanan, who loft St. Thonnas two years ago f-or tlKre "dreamsiof prosperity are reaiized over night," he has ixicome thorougiily seized with the buoyant optimistic s|>irit of the country, and talks most interestingly and informingly of the conditions and prospects there. Like many others posses.sod of the ixx| spirit and go, he has won a \erv Ijilicral (with a capital "L") m�i�ure. of success, and nothing short of the premiership of the province and the presentation of a block of St. Thomns Car Company stock would likely win him back east. "Of course," suys ho "one n*U9t put up with tl�e slight disadvantages incident to a mpidly growing country, while working his claims, but,they �ro quite tolerable.' He is well plen.**! with liis ixisi -tion of Provincial LibftiriuB for .Alberta, ami still retains his interest in the L�thbridge Herald. An in -sjKCtion trip of tho various I'rovin -tiul libraries of the Dominiivn has enabled him to conbino pleasure nnd bu�in>. oust. and tho opportunity to renew old friendships omde during his sta.v in St. Thonnas is counted antong the greatest pleasures of the tri|i. * He will remiain in the city until Friday, going to Ottawa, from here. On the return trip to the west he will visit several State libraries ion the .American side.-St. Thonras .loiir nal.
