THERE IS- A REASON Sdttor of thB Herald ;Dear may he many .rea- ons why homesteaders leave, bmcstead.s-for go6d after they have btafned their patents. There is one _ Summer Heat Baby's.-Fpod g Dairy milk Is unsuitable at all limes. In, the summer It Is a cause of, .epidemic dlarrbua and Infantile mortality. Baby's food mult be paret- proof agalnit contamiiution, wholly digestible, and nulled to the altering requirement! of infant life. Doctors and Mothers through- out tbe world recommend Foods nilk Ih. I. rnmUrtkuliuilb. Kilk t. mil i U The tare troeressive dietary reason that, hafi not appealed to the government ant! to others who are in- teresting themselves in this question. Mr. Marnoch, president oi the Leth- bridge board of trade, offers amend- ments to the homestead regulations to insure more permanent abode on tKe land after the patent is issued. He invites discussion on these amend- ments, i M present the writer has no wish to discuss them. There is one reason to offer for so many failures and that is the work done by the plow in USR at the present time. While many are racking their brains to in- vent engines for the destruction of human beings how little thought is given to improving; that machine call- ed the plow on which all the human family is depending for sustenance. The present, season has been favor- able -for good Godsend, we will say. But let thr. present fidds that atf now .bearing a good crop be turned: over with the plow in com- mon-use and what arc the prospects for next year's crop. They are very slim even if we get the same amount of rain that has fallen during the present season. Some will .say right away there is nothing in this statement, but give, a little reasoning to this question and see 'what will happen. Tour plow will have turned the undersoil on the top and soil that has been enriched now will be underneath next year and there is little chance of a crop any- thing near the, present one. It would take; some space to ex- plain, but in short "it is wise. The rains of this season have enriched the top soil, but next year t'ne enriched soil will be out of "reach -of the seed and a short, dry-spell will draw oft i the growth.before the roots reach the good soil. This-aiTects the old as well as the young 'farmer, but the young homes leader is more likely to give, up with disappointment. Let us, now' follow the common course that is .pursued by-the young man a homestead. The first season be breaks the lantK'about two inches deep, throwing over a furrow .12 or fourteen inches and per- haps 10 inches. ]n time he1 may seed this land and very likely will get some crop. The second year he will seed the same land after it has been backset, disced and harrowed and will get a fairly good crop. The backsetting being no deeper than the breaking the weeds will not be troublesome. The third year he will plow the same land six inches deep- and 12, H or 16 inches wide, and all'the" top soil that has been cultivated and that has been man- ured hy the rain1 and sunshine is turned underneath. Then what hap- pens. The seed is put into raw soil, dry and hard, and the >seed is slow to germinate and the weeds, get the started and the result, a crop of weeds and all the labor in vain. Yours truly, J. Ritchie. If All the documents itored in the patent office at Waphtngtmi could be placed end to would form a strip that would reach around the earth three times. Charger! with stealing one roan mare and a two-year-old the pro- perty of Kay Knight, Georga Rasnius- sen, Henry Rasmussen and Thomas Couains, farmers near Magrath, wcro committed for trial by Superintendent I'ennei'ather, as the result oC the pre- the .Mounted Police barracks .vaster- day afternoon. Counsel for the accus- ed was II. Ostluud. The men are now in tha guard room at the barracks awaiting the disposition of the case. The three men were apprehended the week before last and brought into the barracks. The arrest was made by Constable Ferguson of the Mount- ed Police, who also gave evidence at the trial hearing yesterday. A considerable numner. of witness-, (is gave evidence yesterday, and near- ly all of them were Cor the Crown. Kay Knight, the owner of (he hors- es, was the principal witness. He told the story of the case from bis own standpoint. He had bought the mare and die frily last winter from one, Tom Hurley. As was'in mid- winter and the snow very deep, and the branding station eight miles away, neither the mare nor the filly were branded with Jlr, Knight's brand. Knight's foreman, Wilford Hen- ninger, testified that he bad seen the mare and Tilly often during the win- ter. One day, while he Was herd- ing a bunch oi' Knight's cattle, the Hi'i.v, which was with his hunch, broke loose, and went over to a hunch of horses belonging to George Ras- mussen. He followed it over, and found it sucking its mother, among Hasm.ussen's horses.' Li. H. Kinsey, foreman for the Knight Sugar ,Co., also testified that ho had seen the niare with George Kasmussen's bunch. Others who identified the mare and filly were James Coslley, Richard .Murray pnd Fred Crlss. It appears that Cousins was sus- pected of having stolen the horses, ami Constable Ferguson was detailed to look into the matter. Ho went to Henry Rasnuissen's to got evidence against Cousins. Henry Rasmussen claimed that the mare was his and ihat IIP had bought it from Cousins. This implicated Cousins, as well as himself, and also George Rasnmssen, with whose herd the mare and filly had run. Accordingly Constable Fer- guson'arrested all three men. While on his way 10 where he takinsr the prisoners tu flip .Mounted Police Barracks, be met Ray Knight, who, in his evidence sialod that lin offered to give George TELEPHONE 605 him to get him out of the scrape. Knight toltl him that he could do I nothing, that it was up to the judge. This wag denied by George Rasmus- 1 sen. Other witnesses -wera Arthur P. Murphy, range rider for the provin- cial government, and Constable Mur- phy of the Mounted Police.

The body met at the lodge room at 9 o'clock in the morning, when a- brief service was held. At 10 o'clock they visited the cemetery, where flowers were plac- ed on the graves of the departed mem- jbers. At a meeting of the nojice commis- JBion held this afternoon in the city t hall, at which were present Commis- 'sionere Attridge and Banfield, it was [decided that it would be detrimental I to the city and would impair the effici ency' of the police protection of the city to cut down the force, as recom- I mended by the council board recent- S ly. -The commission passed a motion naming the second Monday in each month as its regular meeting day. A special meeting of the city council was held in the counci'i chamber this afternoon at '3 o'clock for t.hfi purpose of pushing on bylaws in connection' with the purchase of land, which the cily is making at the disposal works. It has been found necessary to pur- 1 c.hase this extra six acres of land to j run the mass of offal on. as there in such a flow of water through the system that the disposal works has been (axed to its capacity late'.y.

CK of the entertainment, and were not slow to voice their appreciation oi the fact that Leth-hriuge has some artists that, would tlo i-redit to the big centres. Clean, irrcsistahle-comedy was the order of the-evening, the severai ccm- eriy sketches being interspersed with musical selections and vaudeville fea- tures. The sketch "A sister to, assist was put on very cleverly by Mr. Lionel Asqiiith and -Mr. Wad- diugton. "Packing uji." .arce, was interpreted by Mi. As- Asauith and Mrs. and Mr. Richard Ilincks, all -of- whom- are talectcd along these lines. The one- act playlet "That Brute was also a big actora be- ing Mr. Hincks, Mr.- Asqiiith-and Mr. Waddington. These comedlM kept the audience in an uproar of merriment. One of the most surprisingly en- joyable features of the evening was the exquisite violin playing of Roy Moulton, manager of the Orpheum, which was an eye-opener- to those who are not in the custom of regu- larly attending the theatre and hear- ing Mr. Moulton play as leader of the orchestra. His numbers last night were most fittingly selected, and beautifully rendered. Lethbridge is fortunate in the possession of a vio- linist of his talents: Mr. Willis, manager 'of Starlaml, contributed his very clever ventrilo- quist sketches, and they were very greatly appreciated. His talents in this HiiiS are undeniable. Mr. Geoffrey Waddington rendered a very fine violin. selection, and vocal solos by Mr. Cooper were very much enjoyed, and brought forth con- siderable applause.
