Last year I predicted that 1914 in Alberta'would be i! year of expansion along sound and ecouomic lines. With the exception of the effects of the European war, events have borne, out the prediction.

With the exception of certain dis- tricts, the farmers have had good crops. They have money, and as a result trade at country points is brisk, and calculated to continue ao during the "winter. The drop in the price of 'lumber, coupled with the Ugh price of grain, is reflected in the improved farm buildings noticed In many communities this fall. One of the most cheerful of rural scenes this season is to observe the precession of farmers' teams to the elevator, aud then to watch them Jogging home- ward, each with a few hundred feet of lumbfer in the waggon.
