Sooner or later a line will be buiU from here direct to Calgary. Al- ready a new railroad is seeking in- corporation with that in view. Lethbridge's duty now is to con- tinually keep this section of the province before the public eye. .Justat present, the boom at Ed- monton is drawing attention to the north, and, while Lethbridge and Southern Alberta should frown on a boom, at least the class of boom which Winnipeg experienced some years ago, still it is necessary that the resources and prosperity of this region should be legitimately em- phasized in every way possible. Southern Alberta, with the intro- duction of new railroads, would, we believe, offer as great inducements to the settler, as any section of the province. Fanning on the irrigat- ed lands has been a complete suc- cess and the men who have located on what are known as the dry land? are not grumbling but arc nourish- ing. It is not alone the duty o! the government and the Irrigation Co. to promote settlement, but a citizens we should persistently boost the district and the town Edmonton is succeeding after fol- lowing course. To our mind, there is no greater indnce- A.ny person unable to siand the winds here, should go East and freeze to death. HERALD HAMMERLETS. You never know how many 3eople want to treat you until you swear off. emphasized the importance or us- ing good clean seed, then they would improve the quality and in- crease the yield He had noticed some time ago that Alberta Red unevenly with many small heads. To improve and to keep up the good reputation of this wheat, it was necessary to sow absolutely pure seeds. Mr. Clark expressed his admiration for the Lethbridge district, and put in a good word for the beet sugar industry at Ray- mond. Mr. Willing, chief weed inspect- or 'for Saskatchewan, drew ,the fanners' attention to one locality in the west where 81111 weed seeds had been found in what had been sold as wheat. Smut, he said, could be prevented by treating the wheat seeds, with pure bluestone. Mix the solution thoroughly with the seed. One' pound to four or five gallons of water would do four or five bushels of seed wheat. He advised the use of fonnalene. one pound to forty-five gallons of water in treating oats. In all weeds he advised the killing of the plants, by as much plowing and harrowing as possible, before it had an oppor- tunity to seed. Angus McKay, of the experi- mental farm. Indian Head, explain- :-d to the farmers the two best ways to test seed grain. One of the causes of smut, he said, was the sowing of poor grain. S. A. Bedford, of the experi- mental farm. Brandon, and M. Mitchell, of Macleod. were with the train but they did not speak. The meeting lasted an hour and seemed to be much appreciated. From here the special went to Macleod. Each car is decorated with samples of poor and good grain, weeds. The speakers travel in a private car. Audiences that packed the Study Hall enjoyed, enjoyed the enter- tainment furnished by the Convent pupils last Wednesday a in I Thurs- day evenings. The performance of the young folks was remarkably. clever and enthnasiastie praise was offered by the people, who display- ed the good judgement to be present on one or other of tLe evenings. In the operetta, es- pecially, the pupils acquitted thein- selues like "old timers" on the stage. The Sisters, who devoted so much time to the instruction of the boys and girls for this delight- ful ati'air. are to be warmly com- plimented and the pronounced suc- cess of last weekrs performances, should encourage them to rrepare the children for other entertain- ments in the future.

The condition of the fall wheat of Alberta today is declared to be ex- cellent. C. W. Rowley manger ot the local branch of the Canadian Btuikof Commerce, has received word from a large number places and it is most favorable. The acreage is largely increased as com- pared with 1905, and the progess of the plant is good m every in- stance. From Leth bridge the report as serts thai the fall wheat acreage i: heavy, and as a result of receii snows, in very favorable condition From Nan ton the fall wheat is very fair average. High River is not quite so opti mistic, the report saying that th wheat .has not secured a good star yet. except that on the summer fal whi'.-li is most fla.ttsrinfr. It is six inches high on summer fal- low and quite That put in after September 15, however, is not so goi'-d. A favorable spring, however, will result in a large crop. Macleod reports a splendid con- dition and prospects of a fine yield. At Claresliolin, one of the "Al- berta Red" districts in the west, the condition is most satisfactory, the plant is strong and making ex- cellent progress. AInch snow has fallen there, which is good. At Pineher Creek everything is reported progressing with a largely increased acreage and prospects of a huge yield. Two feot of snow fell in that district in December and much of it remains as a warm.
