Lethbridge real estate outfit has developed symptoms of hydrophobia because some honest Pincher Creek business man, writing to the Toronto Saturday Night, scouted the idea of Pincher City ever becoming a Chicago or New York. To the opinion .expressed by the business man referred to, The Echo might add that any man who would buy real estate in' Pincher City with-; out first seeing the property would be as big a fool as the rrtSn who used up four columns of the Lethbridge Herald last week in assuring the amazed and astonished public that Pincher City possesses a railway depot, a freight shed and a postofflce, and that there is a steel bridge over 'the Old Man River several miles north of the place. Pincher City is a thrifty little burg alright, but the enterprising business men already located there can handle all the trade they are likely to get for some time. Pincher City is exactly like thousands of other villages throughout the west, arid probably as. good as most of them, but when the Lethbridge gang.try to work up a real estate boom thert they are just making themselves look ridiculous. It is a rather significant fact that they are not making any very great effort to sell these lots throughout this district-where all the conditions are known.-Piricher Creek Echo. , We have -heard similar language used in a b�.r- room, as the* language used in the ahove article, hut the proprietor lost his license for allowing ..t. and we are going to deal as lenient with it as the case warrants. ^ ' It is supposed to lni/ve originated in the master mind of'&C.neHv'Spaper editor. We will never he guilty-of accusing|iWauthor of being a^newspaper editor, nor we-do not think its author will be accused of being a; newspaper editor by anybody but himself>tand the business man of Pincher Greek. '�  . , . The article referred to was published in the Piiicher Creek Echo; The Pincher Creek Echo is called a newspaper by its editor and the honest, business man of Pincher Creek. We are of the opinion .that Pincher Creek is about the only place sucha. deception could he worked. It thinks there is soinething wrong.with our liver. We think our liver is all right-and is still iii its.proper location,: but we are of the opinion that the Echo editor'sliver must have exchanged places with his brain and iii making the change his brain miistMf^M,^'6;t hiixed up with his gall, for he. displays ah unusual lump of gall by attempting to make the people of Pincher Creek believe-, that he is furnishing them with a newspaper.-: , ' ; ' A&ito us showing symptoms of hydrophobia, we do not think we do as we have never been hit- * ten by a Pincher.Creek dog yet, although we have been snapped at by them and barked at a number of times but there one called "eckow" which snaps at us a*ery viciously, but in our opinion it will-he kept muzzled'from now on and then it cannot do ah^ytliing worse than bark at us., As for us using the Lethbridge Herald in advertising Pincher dity, we hope this explanation will he clear and satisfactory, we selected the Lethbridge Herald instead of the Pincher Creek Echo, becaugcSPincher-City is a good thing to talk about, and'we knewlilxat,hys'talking through the col-umns^of-the Lethbridge Herald,- we would be.taIking to a^arge^itdrerrcer^vliile" If"vwe"tUlk^a*" through the columns of the Pincher Creek Echo we would only Ife^alMhg^to Its'editor and ourselves. I i i k * ' V ' ' i " ' � -We agree with the Echo that it is better for people to see l^ip;cti6r pity'before buying property in It, as, it is, much easier for us to sell Piniher City property afteV they have s^eli[ijt7? than to seil it'off the map, this is the system that we1 are following and expect to continue'W|fdljlow. JBut ve Echo or being a business man of Pincher Creek, In filling these positions he could use his?gall and let his brain have a rest. ^ '.'. As for it being a significant fact that we are not making any great efforts to sell'Pincher City property in that district, Ave do not care to put forth any great efforts to* sell Pincher City property in that district or in any other district ,as Ave are selling as much of Pincher City property in our office as Ave care to sell at present, prices, and Ave do not make".-a habit of inquiring frdhi Avhat district any One comes, avIio Avants to buy Pincher City property, as one man's money looks as good to, us as another's.  , � ,. � . , We think it avouM take a Avhole lot of Pincher Creek effort to sell Pincher Creek property to anyone from any district. " . >. It did not require very much effort on our p art - last -Tuesday "to close'with a man for. a Pincher'City'property. This man is from the Lethbridge district, and visited- Pincher City, and saAV the property before buying it, and is well acquainted Avith conditions in that vicinity. We do not Avish to appear boastful about Pincher City, and we do not claim nor never have claimedthat it is a Ncav .York or Chicago, hut avo .do claim that we believe that it has a better chance of becoming5 a second New York or Chicago than has Pincher Creek. We have stated good logical reasons on. which-our opinion is based, and you will: notice that not one of them had been contradicted. '-Pincher Creek can talk at random at Pincher City and at us, but it cannot dispute one of our statements and we- are going to continue-on these lines, and anyone wishing-to purchase Pincher City property, Ave are going to continue to insist on a personal inspection before purchasing, as it looks better than Ave can picture it. . .....

IMPORTANCE OF HAVING SEED TESTED FOR VITALITY From the results of tests made .upon samples of grain from all parts of the Province there is now- no icrnger any doubt that much of this is unfit' for seed purposes, and that farmers- are taking a serious risk (o sowing it ^before they have had a-vte�t made.Jtor vitality. Thi8 refers particularly �. to oats and barley. As we have pointed out befor�, oats, though, pe-rfeqtly plump, and to all outward' fppeW ance sound, may be quite unfit � for seed, due' to the germ -having/ been killed by frost injury.
