Lethbridge is not a boom city. It is not advertising throughout the world that it will have a population of a hundred thousand souls in many years. But it Is growing stea- dily and surely and is rapidly becom- ing recognized as one of the in Western Canada with a great lu- ture. Until a few years ago Lctkbridge was only a mining town with a fair- ly large ranching country tributary to it. It looted to be a. mining town forever in those days. But times have changed and it is to theso changes we want to draw the attention of our editor visitors. Once foremost as a mining centre, JLethbridge is now the metropolis of the most productive wheat belt in Canada. A few years of farming by the right type of former has estab- lished our title to this claim. The Lethbridge district tkis year, lust year, and the year before, has bumper crops. Winter wheat, tne banner grain of this country, will av- erage fully 39 bushels to the acre in this district this year. Spring wheat wiil touch an average of about OUR POINT OF VIEW have everything in readiness by the 15th of September.

J Albion Ridge Albion Ridge, Aug. the 19th inst. was the hottest day ot L-ETUBRIDGC (Toronto News.) It was the custom for towns hi, Southern Manitoba to race to mar-1 the year recorded out here, ket the iirst load of wheat. The first, wheat of the season was marketed in Lethbridge, where they never thought of raising cattle aud coal. Thus do the possibilities of the West expand. rr bushels and oats will clip off 40 bu- shels to the acre in most'cases. These are not boom figures but ac- tual facts and in the cose of spring wheat and oats, not as good as oth- er years. In making comparisons with other parts of the west the ed- itors will do well to keep the crop yields of this district in mind. Ag- riculturall3T, we claim this district cannot be surpassed. But tbat is not all. As a stock raising country it has no equal. Cattle, sheep tmd horses, graze on the prairies here all the year round. The grass is of the rich est nature and quickly put the stock into great shape for the market. While the day of the big rancher is on end, owing to the rapid agri- cultural development of the country, the former who comes into this- coun try and takes up land wul fmtl the i.-p- portunities for stock raising, in com- bination with grain growing unex- celled. But that is not all. The farmer in this country has market at his very dour. The mills buy his grain, make It Into flour and soil it locally or in tht neighboring provinces or across the Pacific in Japan or China. He can find a ready market for his vege- tables. In poultry there is a demand in the province itself for more than the farmers at present produce. So it is with eggs. They have to be brought in from other provinces. Nearly all our pork is imported too. We bring in nearly ul! our fruit, vet there is no district in Canada that can produce better strawberries, bet- ter raspberries and currants than this district. All we need at present if for fruit farming to be handled on a more extensive scale, so that ve can produce enough to meet the .Icmam! We can raise the fruit, and -ttie mar- ket is here. All we require the men to occupy the land and the fruit. And that is not all. I-ethhridge began as a mining town.
