When the bags of sugar-the flnishod pro -duct, were reached the ladies tested the sweet stuff and declared it better than the best. On leaving the factory rigs were taken and ths party went to the meeting house, where a reception was held. On the way a good view was had of tia beet fields, and it was clearly evi dent the crop wan good. At the niceting houKc, though the hour was early, a goodly crowd of citi^ns had gathered and the I,icM tenantGovernor and liegislators met with a heasty reception. R.

Excellent vocal selections wt. The Mormons are very fond of music Their voices arc excellent and well trained and aT'Cardstoh the programme included some very pleasing selections from the mandolin and guitar club, the Cyclone Glee Club, the Cardston choir, Mr. and Mrs. Sheffield and Jos. Card; Mayor Uaimncr presided and c.vii-veycd the kind sentiments of the people of Qardston to the.visitors and during the evening Hon. O. >I. V. Bulyen. Jlon. W. T. Fnlay. Honorable A. -C. Rutherford, Hon. W. H. Cushing, Chief Justice Sifton and Hon. C. W. Fisher, speaker of the Legislature, toM the people how greatly they were delighted with the trip. Hon. Mr. Finlay struck the keynote when he said the trip had ).>een an "eye opener." Hon. W. H. Cushing mentioned his last visit to Cardston which was at a time, not so long ago, when thsre was only one house between Lath-bridge and Cardston, where non-there vere populous settlements of prosperous people. J. W. Woolf, the Cardston member,; got a royal reception. Duncan Marshall of Ed -monton, put in a few words, telling of the appreciation of the press representatives who had taken in the trip. Martin Woolf, president of the Cardston Board of Trade, made a rattling good spieech and' so did Prof. Tanner, formerly sufierinten -dent of state schools in Utah, who thinks Southern Alberta is the best place oh the continent, having mettled here after travelling over most of North Anwrica. The Cardston gathering broke �-,> after eleven o'clock and it was almost midnight when the special train and Thos. McNah^i, jr., firing be-with Robt. O'Hagan at the throttle gan its iourney i^ck to Lethhridge, Though stops had to be made r.t Magrath . and Raymond, O'Hagan hronght the train, into L two hours and eight minutes. At UtlUHiiiii. The- visiting Legislators struck Lethbridge at a most inconvenient hour. They got in here very t;.u-l.. and left before noon, but neveriho-less this city.gave the visitors a warni welcome. At nine o'clock under the guidance of Superintendent Wilson, Sheriff Young. C. B.-Bowman. Robt. Sage, A. �. Ives, B. U. Rylands. M. Freeman, E, A. Cun � ningham, F. W. Barnes. A. E. Humphries, and others, the party took a drive around the city and the visitors wiere surprised at the growth and progressivencss of lethbridge. The remark "I never imai^incd it was such a large and progressive place" was frequently heard. All the sights of the city wore seen but un fortunately owing to the length of the reception at the Mothodistchuroh the proposed drive to Coaldale, to allow the party to view the splendid farms in the neightwrhood of Lethbridge, had to be cut,out to enable the schedule time of the "special" to be carried out. But the Legislators got a good impression ol the city withal that. The reception vas held in the Methodist church, as its auditorium is the most commodious in the city. Quite a large number of citizens as sembled' to greet the visltoni. On the platform were seated Lieutenant-Governor Bulyea, Hon. A. C. Rutherford, Hon. W. H. CuBhing, ntf.'c-e to Judffo by the actions of the c^t -i�onK how glad they were to have the memlters of the first I�rjHiaturo of Alherfa in their midst. He bo-I tieved the trip would remove a gaod ftton the oldest town in the Mormon 'deal of the Ixnornnce that existed a-dlstrlct. The fine crops on e!th-^r ituut'Routhorn Alberta. It would he sMe of the tracks were greatly ad-1 apparent to them even now that the mired. It is a beautiful rolling coun- [south was Jtist ns fertile and rich in try between Magrath and Cardston- Us resources as the north. The task of the government and the iicople waa to build lip the Empire and lo make that part of it in which vc lived, the banner province of Canada. . Mr. Conybeare took occasion, to press upon the legislators ths necessity of land's title's ofHco tteing established in .jiouthern Alberta. At'-present the public was greatly inconvenienced and one o the crying needs was the immediate establishment of such an office for ihs distr.ct. Lieutenant - Governor Bulyea, in reply, remarked that the trip was intended to supply the incnibers of the Legislature, who had to do with the government of the province, with personal knowledge of this part of the province. He believed the entire party had keen surprised at the wonderful 'fertility of the south. They should be in u better position to understand'the, conditions of this part of Alberta and if the present govemntent didn't do in the future what Southern Alberta wanted, they could turn it out and submit to him another set of advisers. The Lieutenant-Gdvcrnor suggested that the members of the Dominion Parliament should visit the a-est. The great niajority of members of that body were ignorant of conditions out here and only a personal trip would enlighten them. Ho did not believe It was possible by conversation to impress upon a nwn the resources of this ieountry. They must see it with their own eyes. Hon. W. H. Ciishing made a vei^-happy -speech. He caused consider -able laughter by observing that northern ' Alberta could be covered in two days but it took a week merely to get a peek at Southern Alberta. He said the aim of the government was to attend to the needs of the entire province, without partiality to any particular section. They realized the great possibilities of this splendid country and were alive to the great responsiblMty that had been entrusted to them. Ihey had to plan and to organize to help pco l)le to make homes for thcol(M�l>c^ and to get the best results of their labor. They wanted to do what is best for all the people. With . the elections over, they had got down to work to assist tt^o the business of the-'country independent of all party feeling. Speaking of Lethbridge he said he used to come here some years ago and thought the people were not awake but nov the city was growing and was going to continue to grow.^llc had no doubt but that this city would become one of the best in the groat proV.nce of Alberta. Premier Rutherford in alluding to the reference that had been made to the Land's Title office, said that they were still under the control of the Dominion government, but the province hoped to soon control them and if Calgary could not look after all the business in present land's title district then an office would be put in Soutbera Alberta. He said that the trip had been exceedingly pleasant and they had found the people of the south splendid entertainers. None of us, ho said were yery far north. Even Edmonton was south when thought was taken of the great country to the north of it and*as soon as communication' was opened up w^ith that country, they ex|M3cted it to develop rapidly*.' He bolieveit the people were all united in working for the one great end-the advancement of our province. Vocal selections were rendered -by Senator DeVeber, Mr. Kilner and the male quartette. They were much enjoyed; After' the reception the visitors were driven back to the station, whera they boarded the "special" and proceeded to Medicine Hat. A stop of five minutes was mmdp at Taber, ; where some of the loadng citizens.wcriB introduced. The (wonderful growth of Tabor vas a distinct surprise to the party. CMightMllicny.

Tlic Senator put his foot iu it when h'.-declared, "Why. children in the have neVfer secii the iniiple loaf." Hon. Mr. Finlay. "Oh yes they have, we have a maple tree in the west. Your argument doesn't count anywa.v. We all sing "God Save the King,'' though most of us hav,i never seen His Majesty. Can't ws sing "The Maple Leaf" and make our embiem', even if we haven't int;n it." A. B.

That statement covers a lot of territory, but it is true as the gospel. Hon. W. T. Finlay told the Ifer-ald that the oats he saw on Mr. Drandley's farm at Stirling were the finest he had got his eyes on in Alberta. C. A. Magrath has no reason to be ashamed of the place that is namod after him. J. B. Holden. the new memter for Vprmlllion, is an old pal of A. E. Humphries. They used to play football together. Hon. -W. H. Cushing after the "feeds" at Magrath and Vardston -"I think the trip, stkould have ended at qanff'instead of starting there. We would titen have had a chance to re cupierate." Lieutenant Governor Bulyea in his speech at Stirling referred to tlie Maple Leaf as the National Emblem of Canada. On the train, later on. A. S'. Rosenroll, of. W'etaskiwiu. disputed this. He maintained the maple leaf was only tie emblem ol Ontario. Hon. W. T. Finlay and O. A.Stuart, M.P.P. claimed it was the National Anthem. Mr. Rosenroll (Fanners' Advovate.) The record of the rainfall lor the Province ol Alberta: contains a warning to the growers.of fall wheatthat should aot pass unheeded. Generous rains may lie expected frbmi the middle of May until the latter part of .Tuly. This is the moisture that must be made available for pushing' the fall wheat plant along during the comparatively dry weather of the fall months. To do this early and careful cultivation of the land is essential. We have seen several fail -uros due to neglect of this .import -ant feature. At times nature may be partitnilarly generous but the sue cessful man is the one who prepares for the worst and asks no favors. Another' feature that should he guarded against is late sowing. It will be readily seen that the plant securing an early start will be bet -ter able to avail itself of existing moisture than the plant which conies on later when growth is slow. -;-peat it, that each year brings tht; record of the old story. Not jnly weeds have been sown, but shrunk jii wheat which can only produeo n spindline' growth of low vitality. Look out for the seed early, get a good sample; clean it again and a-gain, if necessary, for all preparat -ion and work is in vain if followud, by Uiat fttreriinnor of a bad crop-poor seed.
