WE have already alluded to the necessity of ghing the farmers wlio will be assembled in our midst tliis week a right royal welcome. In view of the importance of the occasion it would be well to refer once more to this. So far as the spirit goes we know that it will be present, but let there be some outward and visible signs of the same in the shape of flags and bunting displayed. An outline of the deliberations at the coming convention shows that there is a large range of subjects to be discussed, and on which resolutions will be passed. These are such which not only affect the welfare of the farmers as a group, but lhat of the whole community. These matters wll be discussed with the weight of wisdom brought by experience. The problems to be solved are not only local and provincial ones, but those which have an indisputable bearing on the national prosperity. There is a great deal to be done in advancing the agricultural interests. Though the industry dates from primeval times, new situations are constantly arising and have to be dealt with in Ihe spirit, and according to the needs of the limes. Let us sincerely hope that the decisions arrived at, and the resolutions passed, will not only find favor with the authorities, but that every means will be set in motion to give practical effect to the desires of men who, from intimate knowledge of their particular avocation, are in_ a jjosi-tion to estimate their importance to their indus-iry. 01R POINT OF MEW This is farmer's week. Everybody give him i the glad hand. A "movie" actor who slayed a banker at i Riverside, Cal., is to hang. It won't be any make- j believe cither. Spokane commissioners granted 32 salarv in-i ! creases the other day. Ours haven't acquired' lhat habit vet. i "Made-in-Lethbridge" goods i^Gt a great boost: last week. And there are getting to be iuore to' I boost all the time. i Winter came January 18th. \Vc will be com- i pelled to ask California to produce her records after this before we contemplate a trip to a warmer climate. The highest praises of the work being done. iby the short course agricultural schools are be-i ing sung by the people of the south country! where much practical good is being done. A U. S. court has ruled that the auto is a le-[gilimate part of a man's business equipment. I Still King Horse doesn't seem to be losing out I very badlv. .A CALL TO ARMS. INHERE was no fitter way of inaugurating the New Year than that which was conceived and had its completion in the highly successful Business Men's Smoker held last Friday. Confidence begets coofidence, and the aftermath of tha;f cheerful spirit of optimism which dominated the meeting will be bound to be seen in the creation of a community spirit which will be a mighty lever in the city's development. The gathering was practically a call to arms, \vith the bugle note of faith and hope which facts brought to light declared rang true and in no uncertain tone. These facts were in a sense educative, for they brought to the minds of those who were present, and of those who read the account of tVie meeting, matters which, possibly, they would not otherwise have seriously dwelt upon. What belter augurj' for the future could there have been than the reference made by Mr. Sweeting, of the C. P. R., to the position the city held, i and to the possibilities which may any day become realities when coming schemes are in working order? In our issue of Saturday there appeared close on one dozen local indush-ies which have held their own in spite of limes of general stringency, and are only awaiting to expand into solid assets w\\en the industrial growth of the city starts on that forward move which men of business acumen and foresight tell us in unfaltering terms is not very far ahead. In the speedy realisation f)f this a responsibility rests on eacii one of us, and it cannot be belter expressed than in Ihe words of the C. P. R. Industrial Commissioner: "Make; it your one idea to buy what you can from within your own district, for production without a market does not make for success." After raising our hopes so high it hardly looks �. as if the Borden government would now dis- ^ | appoint us about the internal storage elevator.?" Announcements of big things for this citv are! coming fast these days, and the optimistic "spirit grows accordingly. If the C.P.R. settle their vacant lands around ' Lethbridge, make this city divisional superiu-! tendent's headquarters, and completes the Leth-i bridge-Weyburn line this year, we should all be j verj' well satisfied that they have done a good year's work. After the big smoker the other night there shouldn't be much trouble in picking out good i men to man the Board of Trade this year. Though the Board restricted its activities somewhat in 191.S, it accomplished a great deal of good. A decrease in membership fee however might not be out of place. The attendance at, Ihe smoker showed that there are others who! take an interest in the welfare of the city than those who belong to the organization. Make it within the reach of all. .lust why Western Canada farmers should not, be allowed to sell their wheat in the best inarketj open to Ihem is a pretty hard question to fathom. If the west's market is better than that of the States, why the far^per may be trusted to sell at home. If it is not, why should the farmer be the .goal. As for Ihe milling interests, we would like to sympathize with them, but we can't. We assume � Missouriiin alliUule when told il is more cosily to nutnul'aclure ttour in Western Canada right where il is grown than 1000 miles away, after paying Ihe freight rates. A POSTAL LIBRARY (Peterboro Review) _The Review has received particulars of a scheme called "The Postal Library," This is a Buggesblon that the post dflice Bhouia take up the work of distributing books throughout the Dominion. The promoter of this dcheme is Joseph-': P. Tracy, . Com- missiotier of Commerce and M anufac-ture for the City of l_,t!lhbridKe. It Ik an entirely new idea and the reasons given for Its introduction into Canada j are that the people tlironghout l!ie I country are poorly supplied with Ub-i rary facilities. Heretotoi'e philan-j thropists such as .Vndrew Carnegie j have been largely relied uptn to siJi>-1 p\y' tfi'e iieed' of libraries. Dependence ; upon philanthropy Is unworthy the i great Canadian peoi;!e. BosidOB the results ol such dependence to date are very rneagro and scattered. Grants l)y provinces and cities and bequests by private individuals have produced some (vedilable lil)raries notably in Ontario.

Horse breeders, while paying much attention to Draft Horses, should not overlook the fact that road horses of a good type, with style and action, arc very scarce in this Province, and can scarcely be found at any price. It will not be long before Roadsters will bring the price Drafters are bringing now. Hackneys have style, action, good bone, lots of stamina and are a general all round horse that will bring the money. The above horse's gets have brought some fancy prices in this neighborhood.

The outlying and sparsely settled districts cannot ex-poct adeqiiato library privileges for generations at the present rate of; progress. The Postal Library will! supply tho whole library need of all , the people of every community in the country and that without delay. The proposition is a very bold one and while admitting its novelty and ingeniousness we can see a great many objections wlilch might be raised by the postal offlcials, not to men- raries of any capacity. But as a unl-|n all the skies wcfo sunshjue versal thing it would only complicate and over-burden unuoccssariiy tho postal machine. Mr. Tracy informs us that Mr. lior- tlon the often too much over-loaded i den has given his assurance tiiat liie postman. The only thing in favor o�! Postal l>ibrary will be consUlered by tho scheme is that it would be very serviceable in country districts where the people are out of touch with llb- the government.
