Small buttons run from the hip to the bottom of the goiter giving a most novel effect. Wo/nan Is the nearest period when the most womanly. The production of Timothy seed is an industry, which has not been taken up in this province to any extent, chiefly because it is not generally known that the seed grown in Alberta can be made a profitable industry and also that a ready cull for seed can be found in the Kastern Canadian and U. S. markets. It is only within tho last two years that any quantity o� seed has been shipped from the Province and the very flattering reception the seed has received on the npou markets is an encouragement to those who have sold Timothy seed, to increase their acreage for the production of this commodity. The Seed Uranch of the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa and Calgary, in conjunction with the Grain (Commission are endeavoring to help tho growers in every possible way to put their products on the market in a finished condition. Timothy seed cleaners of the best description arc being Installed in tho Canadian Government Klevator at Calgary for tho purpose of cleaning Timothy seed, tho Churge for handling tho seed being a very nominal one. Last yoar tho Elevator unloaded, cleaned, stored for fourteon days and reloaded the seed at a very low price of five cents por hundred pounds, but now that up-to-date machinery is to bo Installed, It is expected that a alight increase will be made in the handling char- RED CROSS WORKERS AT FOREMOST HINTON NOW GENERAL MANAGER -Montreal, Aug, 8.-W. P. Hinton, traffic manager of tho O. T. P. railway has boon appointed vice-president and general manager in place of Morley Donaldson, who resigned. Rev. C. .1. Pritchard, who was chaplain to Hlshops Reeve and Holmes, successively, and did good work among the Indians, in the Athabasca Landing district, during tho years 190C, '7 and '8, will leave Calgary with the next draft of tho C. A.. M. C, bound for ' Kngland. Mr. Pritchard was born in Yorkshire, England. The above in from a photo taken on one of the b usy days of tho Rod Cross Society at Foromost, which is one of the most actlvo auxiliaries of the Lethbrldge branch. gcs. Tho Keed 1 (ranch have an assistant at (lie. Klevator to grade the seed and tliiH part of the work is done free of charge. After tho Heed is cleaned, weighed and graded, n warehouse rccolpt Is issued, giving the weights and grade of recleaned bdim]. The shipper also receives a government weight certificate, giving official weight unloaded into tho elevator, dockage and weight of cleaned sued. As soon as warehouse receipt is received, by shipper, he can either dispdso of same at once by soiling to Seed 1 louses, or should he prefer to hold for a higher market, he can got an advance from  tho bank iii the same way as advances are made against grain bills of lading. The Canadian government elevator, hold the sacks at tho elovator until they are instructed to return them. The reason why sucks are not returned at once is on account of tho charge made by Cartage Companies for hauling from the elevator which is 2% miles from the city to tho freight sheds. A charge of $3 is made for the trip and it can be easily seen that it saves the shippers a considerable amount, should largo uumbors of sacks be hauleg to tliCtkeight sheds at one time. In shipping seed to the elovator at Calgary, farmers who havo less than a carload of seed, should if at all possible, club together and make up carload lots. In this way a groat saving will bs�".'nado in freights aa there is always a largo uproad be-tweon carload and loss than carloa'd rates. Should this method of shipping bo adopted, every farmer should have bin name stencilled across his BackB in order that there may be no mistake made -at tho elevator whon unloading. A competent person should be asked to take charge of tho loading of tho car and after it is filled, an invoice should bo made out in duplicate, stating the names of the persons who havo seed in car, the number of sacks of each individual and if poss-iblo the separate weights. This will holp the olevator officials when unloading and will also be a mean* of checking up each shipment. A cleaning in transit prlvllogo has been allowed by railway companies, tho charge varying according to the distance. This oxtra ohargo is very small, however, the largest amount charged being six cents pe' hundred pounds. It must bo understood however, that privilege is only allowed when seed is reshlpped to Winnipeg and points east or to Vancouver. In one district in Alberta, where 48 carloads of seed were grown last yoar, the avorage yield was about soven bushels to the acre; this, at a price of $5.25 per hundred pounds, which was the average price last season, gave the farmer gross returns of $17.54 por acre. The expenses'incurred in putting the sood on the market amounted to around $6 per aero, leaving a net profit of $11 to $12 per acre. Indications point to a large increase In the price ofi seed this year, as Chicago market quotes seed for September delivery at $8.75 per hundred pounds. It can readily be seen that, when Timothy is a profitable industry at the prices received last season, even a smaller yield por acre will realize a larger return front tho land used for the production of this commodity. It is earnestly recommended that every farmer, who grows Timothy, give this Industry serious consideration, and whenever possible, cut at least part of his crop for seed and compare1 the returns received from his seed with the returns he receives from an equivalent acreage of Timothy sold for hay. Chicago Timothy seed prices control the world's market quotations. Arrangements havo been made by tho Seed Branch at Calgary to provide shippers and others interested with the latest quotation! upon application. Timothy seed cleaned/ graded and ih store at Culglry government elevator is equal in vallie to Chicago market quotations. ;
