Sheep raising in .Mlxji'ta follows two >vid in more or Ipss ol>en sh�sds durins tho winter. 'I'*io mutton i.s umxI nt home or disposiNi of. two orJ thit-e i\t a time, ito the butcher tho neislvbor-ing town or village. Tito wool, whhh is coarse or medium, is taken to the woollen nuU and traded for i-lalh or else it is sold in small lot.s to the local doolor, who in tui-n dist>osos of it'in oarload (quantities to larger buyers. In southern Alberto, on tho other hand, one muii owns from two to twenty thousatwl. Thoy are all giw-od on the oiwn prairie, heixloti year in and jwr out, in tiands of from two to four thousand, in winter, they are eAjwcted to rustle a living. Il' t*Kt snow gpts deep a snowplosv is used to uncover the grass, or a little hay and oats may be f�l till tho llalmy chinook swKwps tho snow from tlie pra'iric. The mutton may be sold to local dealers, btrt mone usually to the larger buyers, like P. Burns of Calgary, in lots of five hundred up to five ^thousand. Then by these tionl ers it is distributed to the biitchers both in this province and in British Colun43ia. After shearing, the wx>ol is sold to the big wholesale buyers of the East who send their rcpresenta -tives here every June 'to get the only large quantities of fine wool to be obtained in Canada. For the sheep on Al'bertn ranges have little in common with the tyiw of sheep kept on eastern farms. Like the range mcfthods, they have come from the ww�tem states, principally Montana, ami all have a strong dash of Merino blood, Indeed most of the cnc-stock is still half to Ijhrce-quarters Merino. As a result, the sheep n�ke smiall mutton and are heavy shearers. With the advancing mutton market some of the trig sheep men arc beginning; to use Shropshire or Lincoln rams to cross with their Merino evrs. The range sheep industry in south-em Alberta is only a dozen jicars old. In spite of set-backs and losses that would have wrecked .most industries, it has, with one or two except ions, heen a profitable venture. At first no feed wa.s put up for thesheep in winter, and if a month or two of cold weat*>er with deep .snow occurred, wetik stock, old ewes and lanx'is particularly, often di^ad in large numbers. WWIe ordinary losses wore not more than three |)er cent., sometimes they 'have ri.sen to twenty-five per cent., simply because the ^tcepman refused to provide feed for a possible coM snap. Then many had their lanrtjs dropped on tha prairie during April and May, sometimes without the \-estigD of shelter, or nothing nvorc than that offered by a small luml^er corral. Usually under these conditions they were able to save a good lamb crop, 70 to 80 per cent., but other sioasons the woa'ther, like "the tetvdcr mer -cies" of the coyote, was cruel, and the incronse might be only 40 or 50 per ceM. But, as has already been iiitlmatoil range methods are dianging; ^ wiser supply of food and sheds miakes the weather a less important factor in success and puts "the sheep business on a stabte foundation. The rancher now bel'ieves that he .should put up twenty-ftvo to forty tons of hay for every thousand sheep, and that if he has a lot of'lambs, this should be supplemeoted by a good bin of oat.s, somcof which may be profitably fed during December to put the lambs in good heart for. the severe weather that might come. Lambing on the range is strenuous work. Usually tlie ewes, from five hundred to tvo thousand, are put in charge of a herder. As soon as a ewe has dropped her lamb and hos had time to "mothor" it, thoy are both put into a compartment of tho lumb wagon. As soon as thi!4 is full it is driven to the shed and the ewes and lambs put into small pens. Here the shed man sees that ol,l suck, looks after the weak lambs, and fewls and waters the ewes. ShoulJ the ewe� �� bad mothers, tbay are placed in pens so. narrow that they cannot turn arouiKl or get awoy front the hungry lamb. Here they,will usually tajbe up with the lambs. Next day these ewes ,will be tuni'Hl out in small bunches till they get accustomed to find their lamb in a crow^l. At night the ewes are brought into a shed or corral and � night man gathers and oares for all the lambs coming during the night, /m the lorabs get older the ewes ore thrown into larger buncheu, until at six weeks old they may all, be thrown fnto one. In the tneaotiiroe the lambs have lK>on docked and castrated} The sheepman's greatest �lif-Acuity is to get experionr paid w�� SH.15 per cwt. \rith a S lK>r cent, cut for shrinkage; your it ^vn.s .$r�.0s ihiw .>x>ars ago brought $1.75 to Jsii.Ot) pi'r hca^l; this year the prici- .*;J.OO to �3.2.''. and the number to 1* bought is sinull. 'J^e domnml for btwding stock for tho farm.'; in the north is vorv strong, ainl prices will 'be high-�er. How h'.ivc incroa.s�!d prices nITectod llie sheep industry in the .south? In two ways: FMrst it has toiKled to ro-rc attention will bo given to the housing and fiwding in the winter. With the production of plenty of hay and cdarsc grain on tho farms tlie sheep wiill be foil and sent to nKirkot as finished mutton. Fanners will keep nM^rc ami more sheep. Sonw will fence for their stock, others will contbino with their nc4gh -bors and have all their sheep herded together during tho summer where the range and water allows. More atitention will "be given to mutton. Early maturing lnn>bs wiy be raised and spring lamb will cense to ix> '.either a rarity or a myth on the tables of Western Canada. WOMAN'S I.OVE. Do you know the (k'plh of woman's love When the soul she loves is true? 11 your heort is brave And your love is strong, lx> you know what she'll do for you-i" No sacrifice for her is too gi^t. No trial too hard to bear, Forthe one she trusts And the one she odores, Tho it coat her � life of care. Never a nttirmmring word you'll hear; The harvest of hearts you'll sac. As you travel along In this world, and happy you'll No be. saddened face greet you nt the door But one full of radiance divine. Dor the heart that trusts To its utirtost in God Will tH?'er be inclinod to repine. Ever hopeful and loving 'twill be Throughout nil trouble and care. And the hope that you see In the face of your lovod. Will lessen the burdeits you bear. So conftdo all you will in woman Whose love is as deep as the sea.

As the human family is vaccinated against smallpox, in the same manner cattle are rendered immune from Blackleg and Anthr.ix. The Department of Agriculture at Ottawa through the Health of Animals Branch is now in a position to supply preventive vaccine for each of these diseases at the nominal cost of five cents per dose. Until, recently, by special arrangement with extensive manufac -turers in the United States, these products wre secured at a reduced cost, and were placed in the hands of Canadian oattle at ton cents per dose for Blackleg vaccine and four -teen cents per dose for Anthrax vaccine. It is duo to tiio fact thatthese prcparatiions are now being nmdo at the Biological Labratory in conm^  tion wKh tho health of animals branch that they can l)e supplied at Ave cents per dose.
