Everybody was charmed und tho northern 'Alberta members ' i..n about. After a wide circle �f lie district had been made the r {u ci ried the hungry slght-soers to the meeting house, where tho whole u -ar-ted hospitality of the Magruth pro pie was at their service. On the platform, young ladles had a bounteous luncheon, but it had to very much like tho region adjoining I'incher Creek nnd Cnrdslon Is nl. most ns prettily located. The eoun  try about Cardston is vastly different In one rospeet from Magrath. It is not Irrigated nnd yet tho crops there are magnificent as was apparent to the visitors as they drove around the fertile country colored with the rl|k>nlng grain. As - one member remarked "there Is no Let ler country In all Alberta" ond yet when the Mormons came there in tno eighties, the prediction was that they would starve to death. It was only a ranching country they were told, but it did not take them long to prove that the Cardston district was rich in Its agricultural resour -cos. On tho return from fho drwe tho visitors were entertained at most substantial dinners at tho Cahoon ami Wolfe hotels, letter in the even ing a public reception was given at the spacious meeting house, evo>y seat in the auditorium being Ailed and many having to stand. The platform was crowded too, with the visiting members, tho bands, atj Cardston has two bands that ft .v'll be hard to find equalled in all Al bertit, the choir and the Oleo Clul>.

J. W. Woolf, tho Cardston member, got a royal reception. Duncan Marshall of 1>I -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 Hoard of Trade, made a rattling good speech and so did Prof. Tanner, formerly suporlnten -dent of state schools in Utah, who thinks Southern Alberta is the best place on tho continent, having set -tied here after travelling over most of N'orth America.

Tho visiting Legislators struck Lethbridge at a most inconvenient hour. They got In here very �'�rl.. and left before noon, but neverihe -less this city gave the visitors a warm welcome.

Humphries, and others, tho party took a drive around tho city and tho visitors were surprised at tho growth and progressiveness of Lothbridge. The remark "I nover imagined it was such a largo and progressive place" was frequently heard. All the sights of tho city were seen but unfortunately owing to the length of tho reception at tho Mothodistrhurch the proposed drive to Couldalo, to allow the party to vlow tho splon -did farms in tho noighliorhood of Lothhridge, had to le cut .out to on-nblo the schedule time ol tho "special" to be carried out. But the Legislators got a good impression ol tho city withal that. Tho reception vns held in Hie Methodist church, as its auditorium is tho most commodious in the city.

He maintained tho maplo loaf was only tie emblem of Ontario. Hon. W. T. Finlay and 0. A.Stuart, M.PP. claimed it was tho should not pass unheeded. Generous rains may be expected from* the middle of May until the latter part of duly. This is the moisture that must bo made available for pushing the fall wheat plant along during the comparatively dry weather of the fall months. To do this curly and careful cultivation of the land is essential. Wo have seen several fail -ures due to neglect of this Import  ant feature. At times nature may lie particularly generous but the sue cessful nutn is tho ono who prepares for tho worst and asks no favors. Another feature that Bhould he guarded against is late sowing. It will lie readily seen that tho plant securing an early start will ha boi -tor able to avail itself of existing moisture than the plant which comes on later when growth is slow. \o definite time can )>e set for sowing, but taking one year with another, the wheat sown before the first of September, will produce the best insults. The comparatively dry season pi�-vents the heaving and winter .ill-Ing, which is so injurious to fiul wheat in tho east, and care in cultivation and early soring. Alberta should be the banner province in tV>� world. So much has lieen said of impure seed that it seems superfluous to repeat it. that each year brings tlr� record of the old story. Not .inly weeds have been sown, but shrunk >n wheat which can only produce a spindline growth of low vitality. l�ok out for the seed early, get a good sample; clean it again and a-gain, if necessary, for all proparat -ion and work is in vain if followod by that forerunner of a bad crop-poor seed. the summer to laying out new townsites.
