But wo waKt none of the old time boosting of prices in this new movement just opening up. Land men can readily sea that it prices of land are boosted, the now settlor must make a greater outlay of his ready cash in securing his land. This often tends to cripple his resources so that he cannot so readily establish himself and become a producer in the truest sense. The more cheaply wo can sell our raw land for the next few years, the more rapidly will Southern Alberta fill up and become productive to a degree .�approaching its real possibilities. Vacant land does not grow la vnjuo. It must be tenanted to make it of value. So lot us keep raw land values -down'. ..The Board of Trade can'(to Rood work in this regard by keeping record of as mauy land transactions' as they car. secure the details', of.

C, Feb. 23.-The state-ment of. exporta^from Creiton Valley during' 1918 as presented at the annual meeting ot the Creston board ot trade ithls .evening, showed total shipments of agricultural, hi>rtW2ulUiral and. lumber commodities of |28,O00,-000. A large Increase in strawberry shipments was noted, the year's export being 22 carloads with six carloads bf raspberries and 49 cars of apples. Of lumber, poles and posts, 473 cars were shipped. Increased areas of soft fruits will bring the straw-berry export for 1917 up to 30 carloads making the Creston Valley about the biggest strawberry producing point in this province. Lumbering is very active this winter and the year's export in this line will easily run to over 800 cars. The 1916 shipping from the valley of farm produce and livestock is placed at 940,000 alone with f85,000 as the value ot horticultural products. montanan brings smallpox to canada; epidemic halted Edmonton, Feb. 22.-There is an outbreak of smallpox in the southern part of the province. The first case developed at Bow,. Uland about two weeks ago, and shortly afterwards four other cases were reported in different parts of the Grassy Lake -district. Prompt action was taken by the provincial health department, which sent one of Its officers down to. investigate, and the outbreak is how believed to be under control. All the cases have been traced back to one individual, a man who came in from Montana with the disease already upon him. A day or two after bits arrival at Bow Island the smallpox broke out on him, and before it eould be arrested four other cases had been caught. " ' There are also three or four cases near Coalhurst. These, too, have been traced to a visitor from across the line, but they are of a mild type, and have now been checked. A curious -feature of the smallpox epidemics in Alberta, though such epidemics are fortunately rare, is that In nine cases but of ten, according' to the testimony of the health authorities, they are due In xthe first instance to infection brought in from the United States.
