(Special to tlie HeraM) Spring Coulee, Aug. 7.-The new steel bridges which were put across the canal In this >'icinity last August are in a very dangerous condition. Seven sills from one bridge are washed out, leaving one sill to hold the bridgu on one side. The government's attention should be called at once to these bridges. If n>en ere put to work on them at once the bridge can be saved. Over a hun-di-od thousand bushels of gPain will have to bo hauled over them this' (all Jt would make it very inconvenient to the farmers in this district if the britlges should be washed out, as well as a greater expense to the government. , Water is again turned back in the oflnal after being turned out for a week by the A. U. & I. Railroad Co. while 7-opairing the railroad bridge. The bridge is now repaired und the men liayc rotumed to Milk River. Chas.

Mr. Johnson is puCting up a bouse v and a largo bam on his land adjoin-- ' ing town on the south. Ue also is , busy superintending tlu- sowing of -seven hundred acres of wMnter wheat on his land: Such linprovemonts as ' this IS what muke� any country ali : that it is, and Mr. Johnson backs up ; his faith in Alberta by spending large sums in improvements. We hope and. believe that work done as he is do- ' ing his will be sure of a big reward, in 1910., � Mr.^iti:.�. Aliens was in town Sat- ; tmiay on his way to JLethbridge on business. Mr. Aliens says tll�t thia is his second aoafio'n on kls home- . stead in and be likes H hugely. By his efforts' many now settlcm iiave come to Alberta and more ore coming, and so far not one dissatisfied man who came and bouglit land on his ropresentoition. The A'. R. & I. have been improving ^ their pr<�)orty here laitely, by grading up the roadway for loading and unloading froiyht, and also are build- : ing a side track alongside tile new elevators. Dr. and Mrs. Field of Toronto, tlw parents of our Or. J. J. Field, are here visiting. They seem very moeh pleased with Warner aJid our country around. Wheat will commcftce in earnest 'by the lOth and- we do not believe that in lUl Canada there are bettor, crops than surrounding Warner. Much wheat that looked very thin in the spring has spread and stoolod until it will make a fine crop and all this spring's grain la good. People are V(;ry liusy now sowing ' winter wheat. The ocroage for 1910 will be at least three to one for 1009. r' \ A< it J- ;
