When in L .tbbrldjyo call at ttio Windsor A write-up of any town iri'tho weal is apt to be tinged with a cer-tnin degree of optimism, but in the following remarks, endeavor has been made to give as conservative an estimate of the town of Leth-bridge Ms it is possible to do. Lethbridge, a town of about 5000 inhabitants, the chief town of Southern Albertaf isloeated 10I5 miles west of Medicine Hat on the Crow's Nest Pass Bection of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It is the point from which the Crow's Nest Pass line started construction westward in Thirty-four miles west of us is Macleod, which is the junction point with Calgary and Ed-monton railway north 105 miles to Calgary, It will thus he seen that Lethbridge is some seventy miles closer to tlu? vast mining district oi>ciicd by the Crow's Nest J'ass railway than is Calgary. Following the railway of the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company sou thwart l sixty-six miles to the V. S. boundary and thirty-miles further to the Graat Northern Main Line, gives Lethbridge a commanding )>osition as regards location for either commerce or manufactures. Such conditions in fact being unsurpassed by any town west of Winnipeg. Lethbridge district was the first in the field with fall and winter wheat making Alboita prominent in the eyes of the continent. It was the first to develop and now has the only successfully operated irrigation system in Canada It also hastlit* only beet root sugar factory in the West. This factory has been installed at an ex-ixmditure of $500,000. The foundation of the town of Lethbridge is due to the development of the now famous Gait Coal, which is in demand for domestic purposes throughout a territory 8tX) miles east, 250 miles west. 150 miles north and the same distance south into 'don tana. It has thoroughly up-to-date tnuuiei-jkiI water works aud m wvr system. The water worl s machinery is driven by electric power from one of the finest plants in the West. The town is pronounced by strangers coming in on the night trains as being the best lighted town in the West. The banks are well represented by thriving branches of the Montreal, Cnion and Commerce. Splendid schools and churches exist, also thoroughly up-to-date stores. The Gait Hospital has been pronounced by those who know as being the finest institution between Vancouver and Winnipeg and has a medical staff nnsur|msscd in Canada. Its equij)-men! is complete and includes an X Hay machine and an up-to-date rubber tired ambulances the first installed in the West. We have one of the finest club buildings in the West, It is the headquarters of the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company. Irrigation in the town has contributed to'vards the embellishment of homes by the planting and cultivation of trees and lawns so that from the point of view of the manufacturer and the resident, Lethbridge is indeed favored. At present we have progressive iron works where east and wrought iron and brass work of all kinds are moulded and machined. Two brick plants, one steam and the other horse power, delivering splendid brick at 8'J.OO per thousand. An up-to-date Brewery with soft drink and malting departments; the latter is using all the barley raised in the district and pays a good price for it. We have also blacksmiths shops, sash and door mill, but the end is not yet, we want more manufacturers to make use of our cheap fuel, wMer and light, and the Board of Trade with the assistance of our two live newspapers is making a special effort in this direction. Producers and manufacturers we want you with us in the development of the abundant natural resources at out command, A Growing Alfalfa.

Unit in his speech to the shareholders of the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company in London lately, said that it was with alfalfa the company expected to achieve, perhaps their best results.

This year he was fortunate in securing about 200 pounds of seed grown on his own farm. The results obtain-d from sowing with this seed will be watched with gnat interest. "During the previous year the department had received from Russian Turkestan a quantity of seed of a hardy alfalfa growing on the high dry uplands where the winter colds are intense and where alfalfa is depended upon for forage both summer and winter. In the StateB immediately south of the line this variety of alfalfa has proven very hardy.
