Don't let dread of pain hold you back. / Dentistry As We Practise It Is a Gentle Art Rain is fnlllug over the greater part of Southern Alberta today, following three days of extremely warm weather for this season of the year. The mercury dropped suddenly during the night, and from l.uudbreck comes a report of a slight frost. The recent rains of late have delayed harvesting to some extent, hut even so. harvest operations aro away ahead of tlie usual ^.state of advancement at this time. The threshing machines are In some parts of ihe south and by next week Uireshlng will be fairly general in the short crop districts. The thresher is proving that the early July reports of the crop are wrong. One instance of this is furnished by .Mr. Kyipke of Iron Springs. His crop on a largo field is turning out 20 bushels to the acre. The crop is very thin and at one time looked as If it might not lie worth cutting. It is believed this will prove to bo tha in many quarters, and the highest estimate mudo by the Herald in July of 10.000,000 bushels on this railway district seems in a fair way to being fulfilled. \ Farmers generally - commend the govemmonfs action in placing an embargo on Alberta wheat until such time as the needs of the province for seed and feed aie provided. eiGAMfOOD city, escaped death by a close margin ynaterdty evening wheti n pfit boar, belondmr to an Italian miner who Uvea In the Annex, got looae and attacket! Mr. Halgh. The bear, n husky brown bruin, weighing over two hundred pounds and over two yenm old i�' usually kept confined In a small oncloaure, within which he Is chained, but got free in some way. While engaged in clawing and gnawing Mr. Halgh on the back and arma a ainaU dog flew into the tray, milking a leap for the bear's throat. This distracted bruin's attention from the man, and he paid his attention to the dog, killing him in short order.' in the meantime Mr. Halgh lost no time in getting away, but carried with htm a dozen deep scratclie? and "bites Inflicted by the furious beast. Ur. Garner dressed the Injuries, having to take a dozen stitches to close up tho deep scratches on the back and the bites on the right forearm, left wrist and on the lower portion of tho left leg. Jlr. llaigh, though severely lacerated. Is not seriously injured, but,It is likely to prove a fatal encounter for the ferocious bruin. / E LUSn CAPTURED Taken By French Boats iA Mediterranean, and His Sub Sunk Drs.

Aug. 26.-A representative of the interior department visited JIacIeod last week, and had several long conferences with some members of tho .Mennonite colony on the south of tho town. The QreatcrTrtKluction corporation have ploughed over eight thousand acres of land on the Blood Reserve for crop next year, so that the Dominion may thus have that amount more of Thoat to feed the boys at the front.! This is under the supervision of the i Indian department. Tractors haye been used for the purpose and will also be in action again when the time comes for seediftg.

Schw^elger, tlic man who sank the Lusitania, has been captured by a French patrol boat in the .Mediterranean,'according to the .lournal. A large submarine of which he wM second in command, had just torpedoed a Biitish steamer between Malta and Sicily. Thfe submarine was waiting to see tho vessel sink when two French patrol boats emerged from'the fog and sank the U-boat. Of tho crew of iieventy-five only one officer and four men were rescued by the patrol boats. While "being taken to Toulon, the officer appeared ill at ease. When ho thought no one was looking he tried to throw some papers overt)oard but a sailor seized his arm. He refused to answer tiucatlons but an examinatlou of the papers explained his uneasiness. La Journal asks if the man who committed the "moat vile, the most barbarous and tho most cowardly act^ in the annals of war" is merely to b� | seat to a prison camp. CAPIuiCAiRA lULOBEVIlAL \>'ould Practically Strangle German Armies in Nortliern France (Canadian Press Dispatch from neuters Limited.) Paris, .Vug. 27.-French military critics all pay a tribute to the great value of the present: British operations, especially in pinning down huge enemy forces. They .point out that Bapaume  could h.ive been taken two days ago. ljut that the British preferred to manoeuvre the Germans out of it.  The well known writer. Colonel Fabrj-, shows why it Is essential for the enemy to desperately defend the Vay to Doual and Cambrai. If, he says, the allies could seize the triangle formed by these towns and Valenciennes and the cross roads of Lon-gwy, Longuyon and Mont Medy, then practically the whole network of railroads which feed the OMemy's present front will be cut, wlilfh moRns the strangulation of his armies in France.

Burns, the cattle king, stateil in au Interview that the live stock situation In Alberta was very aatlafactory and that Southern Alberta would thresh half a crop at least. ; �� Mr. Burns was emphatic in declaring that there was au aamired supply of feed for cattle in the south. Before the late rains of early August and late July camo there was fear that the range and stock couiitry would be short on foddec. but the rains relieved that. Some ranchers had been contemplating moving tholr stock for winter feiBding but this is unnecessary now.

STUDY YOUR PLANTS NOW ? : FOR NEXT YEAR'S SEED ? POTATOES. . : ?  : : ? > ? : ? ? > > ? ? : '? ? ? ? ?  Do not WHJt until planting time next spring to select your seed potatoes. Do not even wait until harvest time this fall. Begin now by making a study of the plants. I^his is the advice given by specialists to potato growers who want to have seed that will produce the highest yields. Potato growers should have a seed plot, whfch may or may not bo a part of, the" main crop, and from the best growing, disease-resistant plants in this plot, which produce high yields of marketable sized potatoes, select their seed for the following year. An area of one-tenth or one-llfteenth of the entire acreage will usually provide sufllcient seed for the following season's planting. " White it Is an advantage to start the seed plat with selected material, the work may be begun during tho growing season with any Kood stock Of promising quality planted In suitable soil and properly cared for.--Tlie beat portion of the field, therefore, should be selected for the seed plat. It should be well drained, frequently cultivated, and thoroughly sprayed. Frequent Inapcetlon Advised. Several times during the growing season the seed plat should bo inspected. All weak, degitiherate, and diseased hills and those showing varietal mixtures, should be pulled, so that only the progeny of healthy hills of the correct variety will remain at harvest lime. Plants showing stem rot either at or below the surface of the soil, plants developing any type of abnormal rolling of the loaves, those with mottled or crinkled leaves, and any plants that arc stunted, weaken.el or that mako unthrifty growth should bu discarded. If practicable It li best to dig tho seed plat by hand, care being taken to ollralnato all low yielding hills and those producing an undue proportion of small or unshapely tubers. In harvesting avoid unnecessary cutting{ bruising "or otlior Injury, sinde the vitality of damaged tubers Is reduced, Oather and store the seed potatoes la slat crates. Pl'ace them as soon aa posslbio after harvesting In a cool reasonably moist storage house provided with good ventilation and maintained at a temperature of 30 to 40 degrees P. Before the next planting time I ho ^lock should be carefully worked over to remove all badly cut or bruised tub-ers and showing serlouB scab or black scurf and defcay of any kind. Tubers badly off typo should also ho discarded, as should any showing abnormal discoloration of flesh, which can be seen, of course, only at the time of cutting. If scab or black scurf is present in any degree, It Is advisable to treat tho seed by covering for 30 minutes In a solution containing 4 ounces of corrosive sulillmate to 30 gallons of water.
