For milea of Granum through the Rocky Coulee the fall grain is all in the stock and if the number of stocks oil the fields is any indication of what the yield will be it is aale to say this year's crop will; surpass any previous year as the crops very even there being very, little difference in any of the fields. In "the Rocky Coulee District the fall grain has been in the stook for ten days and ion and said: "I wonder if he thinks threshing will be started this week. he's the whistle on the engine." Of the nuiny stories of the late Senator Allison's cautiousness per- haps the best known and illumina- tive one is the sheep story, A drove of; freshly sheared sheep passing a i -jwi. window where Allison and a friend life with, steel bridges, solid embank- were sitting the friend observed: Senator, they have cut the .wool low grades, easy curves, and every improvement which great, wealth and enormous .and long established traffic bring to "other rail- ways. This solidity will have a great effect on the operation of the road; Mr. Graham submitted a cal- culation that on a basis of ten trains a day each way the saving on a road of the standard decided, on, as com- pared with- the ordinary standard, the saving in operation will be vevy nearly a year. THE LETHBRIDGE FAIR This is the evening day of the Leth fair though tomorrow and Thursday'will be the big days. The Lethb ridge fair ranks as the leading one in Southern Alberta.

The exhibits of grains at this year's fair promises to be worthy of this rich district. Visitors cannot help but be convinced that this dis- trict is rich in its agricultural re- sources. The early closing of the bars, ac- cording to Chief Gillespie's testimo- ny, is reducing drunkenness. That was the object the Alberta govern- ment had in view when it made this change in the license laws. Lethbridge is again in the front place with, the- first wheat, of this year's on the market. For early and good growth you can't beat the Ixithbridgc district. Yours truly, ROBT. SAGE. The Editor, Free Press, give publicity to the In your paper of the 4th inst. you omit Lethbridge from the published list oS to the Femie Re- lief Fund. On Sunday 2nd inst., 11 am
