No part has extraordinary crops but all have sjood crops from \Vinnipog to the mountains. Mr. Kiley has been t.raveiling in this country more than tw'eaty ��years; and he says that no man sis more 811 iiiK Uie country years ago. Ai that time they never gave this district a ! thought as an agricultural country. Speaking of � Lethbridge Mr. Rilcy said that not being a politician he could hardly agree with R.;B.'BenhCt4 in predicting o futiirevlor tlie city| Although he could not say "that hei ^xpeoted it to bo the second city in the province he to not be very farJaehind as it had a great future ahead of it.
