NUMBER 11 mills etc. Thosu must all go at prices that will sell them THIS .MONTH, as we have de- cided to go out of these lines. Lethbridge One of the Most Pro- gressive places in the West. A write-up of any town in the west is apt to be tinged with a cer- tain degree oi: optimism, but in the sively low temperature. Of a truth Colorado has nothing more by way of climate than South Alberta. B. A. Cunningham SHERLOCK, FREEMAN CO IF YOU BUILD YOU NEED LUMBER you are wise you will buy your Lumber where you can get It the best at a reasonable price-and get it when you want it. We handle Lumber of Every Description Our source of supply is unlimited and yon can depend upon getting whatjfyou ask tor. ENTERPRISE LUMBER CO. Ltd. J. W. MONGOL, General 'Manager, Lcthbridge, Alta. Brwcbes at Taber, Nanton, Leaving, Cardston, Pinchcr Creek and High River following remarks, endeavor has been made to give as conservative an estimate ot theJown of Leth- bridge as it is possible to do. Lothbridge, a town of about 5000 inhabitants, the chief town of South ern Alberta, is located miles west ot Medicine Hat on the Crow's Nest Pass section of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It is the point from which the Crow's Sfcst Pass line started construction westward in Thirty-tour miles west of us 5s Macleod, which is the junc- tion point with Calgary and Ed- monton railway north 105 miles 'to Calgary. It will thus be seen that Lethbridge is some seventy guiles closer to the vast mining district opened by the Crow's Nest Pass railway than is Calgary. Following the railway oi: the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company south- ard sixty-six miles to the U. S. oundary and thirty-miles further o the Graat Northern Main Line, ives Lethbridge a commanding xDsitiou as regards location for Growing Alfalfa.

The following extract from the last report of the Department of Agriculture of the North -West Territories is of interest in this connection. In Southern Alberta alfalfa has taken firm hold, and Mr. W. H. Fail-field of Lethbridgo reports having about Ho a. -res of it. This year he was fortunate in securing 200 pounds of seed grown en his own farm. The results obtain- ed from sowing with this seed will be watched with great interest, ''During the previous year the LETHBRIDGE BREWING i MANUFACTURERS Fine Lager, Beer, lie and Porter THE-3VKST IN THE WEST All orders sent to the Brewery will receive prompt, attention Bow.

It has also been found that when these bacteria are absent the plants do not do as well, they are sickly in appearance and never make a gn.-at growth.
