Mr. Marshall Sends Live Town Good News No Asperants for the Council Sheep Shipment Magrath, Nov. Hon. Dun- can Marshall, minister of agriculture, n a letter to F. C. Steele, secretary of the Board of Trade, announced that liis department had decided to hold short course school iu domestic science and agriculture here in the month of January. This is good news to the people of the Magrath district, and is a signal victory for the Board of Trade and the Agricultural So- ciety, two public bodies "who have worked in. harmony 10 bring one of hose schools to iMagrath. Magrath is pleased with the distinct recognition of her just dues by the provincial au- thorities. A government ofliciat will ,-islt the town shortly to prepare ar- rangements for the school.

Continuing; Mr. lleatliershaw said: "This year we took the advice of these experts and planted a large acreage or flax, ac.couming for the vast quan- tity in iht1 country this fall. Fancy price-? were paid for seed, and when the farmers came to market their crop the price they received was out- rageously Most of them "went in the hole" on the flax, and now in the face of all of (his the railway j company comes out with the announce j ment that they have ordered their j agents 10 withhold all shipments of flax until further notified. This is un- just. ;ind i know that it is working a great hardship on I lie farmers." Inquiries at (he local elevators brought, out the information that they were loaded to their capacity with flax ami that there was nothing mov- ing yet in thai particular grain. This has liefMi the banner year for flax here, and it has caused a keen dis- appointment to the farmer? to be forced to dispose cf their crops at such ;i sacrifice.

Monday, Dec. 2, is nomination day here, and as yet Mayor Ririe is the only man in the field for either mayor- alty or aldermaiiic honors. The elec- lion has proven a very tamo affair, scarcely any interest having been manifest. It is probable that J. A. Rasinussen will again be induced to enter-the ,council, but Mr. Head says he is {nit to stay. A whole batch, is wanted for the school board. J. T. Finlayson and B.
