There are some first class busi- .nes openings in Warner at the present time. There are excel- lent opportunities for a doctor, a drug store, a livery and feed a flour mill, an elevator, a brick yard and other such enter- prises common to a thriving new The town has a bright fu- Ijture ahead.

It is a station on {the Alberta railway and as -we mentioned before is'in the centre of as fine a grain growing coun- try as is to be found in Alberta. (The country is settling up rap- j idly -with a class of people and they are raising ex- cellent crops. Leffingwell Egan had 95 acres of winter wheat last year that went 40 bushels to the acre. For this yield they got 7oc a bushel. The cost of all labor including team work and seed- ing, harvesting and delivery to the railroad was about an acre. leaving them a profit of per acre. Tenny Bros, sixj miles_ from Warner, had a crop.' of winter wheat that went 48' bushels to the acre. Geo. B. Suapp's yield was 39 bushels to the acre. Herman Hotze thresh- ed over three thousand bushels, off spring breaking. His yield was 20 bushels of spring wheat per acre. .40 bushels of oats, per acre 15 bushels of flax per acre and 40 bushels of barley per acre. For stock there is no better country on the .face of the earth. Cattle, horses and sheep can stay out all winter and keep fat on the rich prairie grass. The town of Warner is differ- ent from most of the other ngsr towns iu so far that its residents are not boasting that in a few years it will be the biggest city in Southern though they do claim, and rightliy. so, .that it_ will be one of the" best towns in the country. Another difference is in the class of buildings that are be- ing erected there. In most of the new towns the first stores and hotels are small shacks with but little accommodation for goods town.

The great majority of settlers are from and South Da- kota, Iowa, Minnesota. Wiscon- sin and Michigan. They are a splendid class of settlers having practical exper- ience in farming and being pos- sessed of considerable means. They come to the country with jood amounts of ready money, start banking accounts and pay cash for what they get. Manv of them have been known to pav cash for their farms.
