P. R. has been found a good con pany to back on. But Craabrook i considerably more than, a G. P. R (own; it Is a. coming city, which th C. P. R, does not own.-but a cit, which the company recognizes as coiner and is willing to lake chance on. The popular idea that Cranbrook i railroad town only bas travellei far and lias 'sometimes done the cit; harm. To be a railroad town only i suggestive of limitations, and Cran brook has no such narrow boundaries Surrounded as tills by .vJie everlastiiij it nestles in the centre of 0111 of the widest and most fertile valley! of the Rockies, a valley of varied re sources, 'one rich in mineral, llmbe and agricultural wealth. One natur ally expects, to find timber and min erals in the heart of the Rockies, bit valuable as these resources are Cran "brook also beckons to the tiller of the soil and is rapidly forging to the froh as a district growing big vegetables hardy fruits, and grains which stant six feet high. East Kootenay lias '.boOK coniing to its own.- Marrj there are who think the district has not been given a fair show by th' provincial government in the matter of 'boo'stihg, but may or may no ie reading the nice about other parts of the province with magnifying glasses. So far as roads andf bridges'are concerned a generous jrro'licy seems to have been pursued 'and the Kootenay Valley will be pierc ed from one end to the other by the coming great Canadian national high way. But it is of fruit .growing this article has 'to !dor'What the eye, seas can be believed'arid be- cause there are so, eyes which have never the Kootenay, Valley is the reason timber, coal and metals are a) ways 'associated with Ihe Rockies. Wide Stretch of Country Cranbrook is hemmed in hy maun' tains but not closely. Tho'big hills are far enough to permit of agricultural development, and-there are arable bench lands and considerable of rich prairie land St Mans a miles from Cranbrook, QMS grow over .six feet .high, and, wheat also sboqts up as if impudenJy ueing with the majestic- mountain tops! Mammoth1 Vegetables And they grow vegetables. 'Such whoppers. Field rooters sure prize Dinners at any exhibition Potatoes, large, dry and mealy, (he every epicure relishes, and -they don't grow "few-to the hill" either. The prolific yields 'would surprise the dweller on tho "prairie. The agricultural possi- bilities of the Cranhrook district have barely been -realized as yet. out- i ask uhen IE this dmelop- raent to take place. .two It will develop 'tshen tlie world outside realize'the agricultural and horticultural possi bllities'of the smiling valleys protect- ed by the tiemendous hills, kissed bj genial suns, watered by countless rills, an-d .protected from1 devastating nds'by the very mountains which people in ignoi ance think to be a drawback to agricultural life. Up to the Government The other answer remains with.the provincial Hundreds of rich acres are tied up tighter than he proverbial fiddle string with tim ber limits. There are too many "con- ODS" to lunvber kings and mining magnates, and it will require.a. gov ernment sufficiently alive to the in erest of the prounce to forget thai umber kings and mining magnates hundreds 'of votes and go in or a policy of peopling the land. It s perhaps in this- respect the people East Kootenay have their biggest grievance, but the expression of a rong which needs righting has not ocused on the ballot box yet and un il it.does the street corner'kicking sn'L long enough in the .reach to ouch Victoria, A Real Home Market It is not to be expected that this vill become a grain shipping country lit, it can become a wealthy mixed arming country with a home; market eady lo consume every-t-liini; grown, fay, the fines!

Oats sell at to a ton and over fons have to be brought in from outside. Ruder sells al 25, lo lOe a pound and it is nil brought in. What a vista of opportunity In the dairying, line. More Hens Needed tfjtrgs sell at 30 to a dozen, nc- cordinc to seaaon, and dozen i are imported annually. Opportunity for mixed farming should be spelled out In mammoth blazing letters from the mountain tops. Some 'Axe Work There.Is one obstacle to farming, and that is the clearing necessary on the land, but when it is cleared the fanner has soil unsurpassed oil the American continent. What About Fruit? The district hasn't been advertised .as a fruit growing district but the .day Is coming when tons of small fruits and jhpnsands of barrels of apples will be shipped from this point. Ilils not claimed that peaches, grapes or apricots-would be a success here. Bui so. far; as currants, cher- ries, apples and kindred fruits are concerned, Cranbrook district can pro- duce the best. Already fruit farmers have demonstrated the commercial advantages of .the district. One man grew so'many strawberries in 1911 he couldn't got the necessary help to pick this year he, plowed under acres of. berries. Cranbrook haa -been much ,too modest in pro- claiming its advantages as a fruit growing business -men here do not want a boom. They prefer to see city and country develop in a nor- mal, -healthy.' way, but there are re- sources .which need advertising, es- pecially .when. .the: great throbbing, active world looking for openings does'not associate mountain districts and agriculture In their thoughts. Exhibit For Lethbridge- The Cranbrook Board o' Trade has und-sr way preparations foi a. big ex- hibit of the resources of the district at 'the Dry Farming Congress in Leth- bridge_ It is pioposed to build a Cranbrook which .would be an architectural gem. The Itiiube. men of the district have promised the J. D. McARTHUR LIKELY .GETS IT Winnipeg, Aug. Frank Cochrane, In order to ex- pedite the closing of the con- tract for the of tho second H'CCtion of the Hud- son Bay examined tenders at arid while no decision has been reached, ft is not improbable that the contract will be awarded to the J. D. -McArthur Company. The section .covered by Ihe contract covers 98 miles, ex- tending from the, northern terminus of the first, section, upon which the J; D. McArthur Company is now engaged, material, and each firm has been, ask- ed to contribute 'what It specializes on. The. Board of Trade and Agri- cultural'Society will gather the ex- hibit and in order to get a good one fancy inducements have been held out for district exhibits at the Cranbrook fair in September. The country sur- rounding has 'been divided Into fifteen districts for competitive'purposes and points are to be given for fruits, fresh, .preserved, etc.; grains and agricultural seeds; roots and, veg- etables for the table; forage plants, dairy products; roots and vegetables for stock, etc. "Cups --and "'money prizes are being hung up nnd the as iociation reserves the right to appro- priate any exhibit to be'paid for at current market prices. .These collec- tions will help make up the exhibit for Lethbridge The British Columbia government proposes erecting a building at Leth- bridge for a -provincial 'exhibit, and Secretary Bums .wants Cranbrook to join forces with the government, but the feeling here Is that Bast Kootenay would get the slim end, of the boost- ing as usual, and it: would to have a distinct Cranbrook exhibit. Much will, depend on the cooperation given by the Dry Farming Congress board.of control success.of the project .If, Lethbridge co-oper- a building constructed of Cranbrook district material will be left on the fair grounds as a pel man- ent asset.

Should, however, the subsidy not bey. avail- able, there Is no reason why the fanners of this district should' not produce' as many liogs as possible. My company would arrange to take at feast the quantity above stated, and just as soon, as we are shown lhat we.can gel hogs, 'we will put in buy ers in'the Southern districts There is a matter that should at- traot the attention of the Board" Trade and hog producers if they wish to take advantage of the rapidly grow- ing'uiarket at the coast: for their live Block, and that is the question; of freight rates on live stock
