A soil rich, in mineral matters; the avallability'*ot an abundance of nourishing .feed'/or the con-, structlon of a ctrong. perfect, enduring' frame; a 'bri^t . atmosphere, bracing and- pure, furnishing the oxygen required for lung development; the benefitting sunlight, and plenty of pure drinking water-these are some of the advantages possesFcci bv AJberta which contribute to (he growth of a stroag, vigorou.s )�^H'.lliy animal, unsurpassed anywhere iu the world. Mr. Lanes first e,xperieDce with imported hordes was - Tith a nunib-ir which he brought over the border from Montana in the early nineties, and tile success he had with these JHstilled his confidence In the conn-try and'In-the breed he had ohospn - the Percheron. The Unltod bta!n;s soon became a "field too'/ilmlted to supply the needa of Mr. Lane and about ten years ago he went to France wuh the intention of purchasing about a Hundred and fifty high class horses in the home of the breiid, which he had made hl,3 own. On his arrival there ho was disappointed to find, however, that all the good horses at about the prices he had intended to pay had been disposed of. >AU that wer6 left.were .number of mediocre animals and a few animals of the vei-y highest class and price. He at once decided that the former were of no use to him, and returned to Alberta with seVenty-flve of J^he flatter, which he had purchased for ;tltievsum that he i;itended to invest in dotible that njimbnr. Mr. Lane now coHJi'ders this the best pie'-e of busInoRs >V2 "i^cr transacted in life. ;v ,: ,- Thus T-as laid '.ho foundation of his grer.t establishment, whltJh even now, nlthough it exceeds In siz.e any similar pstabil.nliment in the world, is capable of j.onsiderable expansion. Fi'on:\ the time ^of Mr; line's first visit to Prance to the outbreak of the war he became a 'regulaf importer ot Percherou horses from that country; but the tables are now being Lurned, and after the war It Is expected that France will look largely to Alberta as a source for the renewal of- her purebred r.Lock. The-work of the noraes from Alberta in the war has made many friends.for,them, vltalityj and povyer to resist disease .originate. The most remarkable tact that breed-, ers who have Experience In other countries.. notice is the exceedingly low percentage of mortality among ^horses jn Alberta, espepially -amoagi ;the youijg/animals. 'Whaj; this means betw^eep sucOeSsX and ^on-su'ccesa in' .this, line of business, onljr the, experienced' breeder can appreciate; It means so much that there is scarcely any line of endeavor anywhere yielding such good returns as the rAlsicg of purebred horses. In^Alberta is dd-ing, and It bespeaks for the province a-wondcrful future.'* -  ;
