The beet ground is already be- ing prepared by some, for this sea- son's planting. There will be a grand character ball on night. -Last week the business men Magrafch met and organized a local board of trade which has been needed here for some time. It promises to have a good energetic jj j and progressive membership. The Magrath brass band held a reorganisation meeting Tuesday last and are now in good working order for the season. Ammon J. Mercer was elected president for the coming year. The members of tho All Star clnb were agreeably surprised Thursday evening by the members of the IL B. J. U. clnb at the home of Miss Fletcher and a very agree- able evening was spent conjointly by the two clubs. The two clubs have been having some very pleas- ant times this winter. The Raymond Milling Eleva- tor Co., have commenced active operations on the new fiour mill. They are going to erect one here this season. Horses have been in extremely good demand here this winter, and a good many have changed hands.

The contrary is the case and it is being demonstrated by succesful practice. Withoutdoubt the great- est centre of developemeut during the past year or two has been south of Calgary, rather than north of it, at suck points as High River, Nanton, Claresholm and Leavings, It has also been active, in Piudier Creek, Macleod and Lethbridge districts. That is it has been along the southern division of the Calgary and Edmonton railway. and along the Nest railway. The turn for the south country has come; and it is here now.

In taking the census of Manitoba. Saskatchewan and Alberta some time in June there will be a depart- ure 'from the plan followed in 1901. The intention is to have the census made by townships in rural districts instead" of taking the number of persons in each polling subdivision as formerly. Each province will be divided into census districts con- tianing about population. At present it car.not be stated how many such districts tliere will be. local commissioner will be ap- pointed, but Archibald Blue, chief census commissioner, and two of his staff will come west and each will have direction of a province Meetings will be held at the various centres for the purpose oi instructing the enumerators, auc when the schedules have been fillec in they will be collected and check- ed over.

Calgary, however, impresses one as being drier and no doubt it is. The heavy black humus soil of the Edmonton country holds its moisture, and the timber or scrub, prevents rapid evaporation. The dry chinooks and untimbered prairie are. both aids to rapid evaporation. Nei ther Indian Head or Edmonton feel the influence of these winds in their characteristic forces, but Leth- bridge, Medicine Hat and Calgary do. It is evident that though the south country appears dry, its average precipitation is sufficient for crop production if the moisture can be conserved. The success cf winter wheat in the Spring Coulee country on the south and Claresholm and High Kiver on the north is resulting in attracting considerable capital to the Lethbridge district immediate- ly between these. Vast tracts ot farming lands are being at present boughfup in Lethbridge country, both under and above the ditch, and the cultivation of all Ian-Is if. unirrigated in this dis- tnct. is a near by prospect.
