While glowing crop reports opme from nearly every part- of the (Canadian West, especially aince the rains have relieved the drought in portions of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, there is no part that can show better prospecta than the Lethbridge district. A. E. Humphries has collected an exhibit of grains and grasses for shipment to J. Obed Smith, Immigration Commissioner at Winnipeg, that caii-liot be beaten anywhere. In this exhibit are samples of winter wheat four feet high with heads three to four inches long, from the farin of O. 8. Crest, three miles east; spring wheat thirty-eight inchea. higl^^'^troQg and firm, from Geo. Stubbs, of fiight-niile Lake; winter rye over six feet high from Emil Hanu's frirm, sixteen milea north. From D. J. Whitney'a fann, two miles south of Letli-. bridge, Mr. Humphries got alfal&, three and a half feet high, brome grass five feet high, and titnothy four feet high with six inch heads. The Alberta Bealty Co. have samples of spring wheat 42 inches high with beads averaging by actual measurement over aix inchea long, from J. F. Bradshaw's farm, 18 mileis south of Lethbridge, near Magrath; winter rye, six feet four. Brome grass 51 inches, alfalfa 34 inches, and timothy 48 inches high are shown by Mr. Daniel from fields within three miles of Lethbridge. Such crops as are within the Lethbridge district cannot be equalled anywhere on the continent this year. These samples are fairly representative of the crops of the district, being taken, it is noticed, fmni farms lying east, north and south of tlie city, and from- both irrigated and dry land farms. � � The Street Carnival. BRIDGE MTHIN A YEAR Many Conlraetors Hera MaU Estimates. to During the week vast cro�^fl� are throitging to the Nat Reiss Street Carnival which is here under tho auspices of the 2.5,000 Club. 1*6 grouping of the various shows; the operating of the. various side* shows, and the plo.vfuI of confetti, all. tend to make the crowd a jolly one. ~Some of the shows are novel and verj' interesting. Special nunft'ion should be made of the baby iticulmtors in which infants are thriv ing by a scientific treatment of air, heat atkl food. The circus gives general satisfaction especially the nmiusoinont ofTorded ]yy the coech tlogs and thu clever ad'obats. All the entertainments are being well patronized and are clean and refined. Crowxis are conwng in friiimi all quarters and tho pros|iects are that the 23,000 Club, �will have a good bunch of money to the good. The Irrigation Convention. .1. R. Wheeler, secretary of the first Western Canadian Irrigation Convention was in the city oh. Wed nosday in tho intereats of tha Convention t obe held ia,Calgary on tiM! 17th and ISth. To the Herald, Mr. Wheeler said that gt^?at inteivst is being shown from Winnipeg to the Coast and nil the towns and cities in the iri'iga -tion districts of Saskatchewun, Al-Imrta and British Columbia are scmling delegates. * Many interesting papers will be given on irrigation and torostry, ns w�ll as the Iiaws governing these. A pKMninent contractor who haa already btiilt the masonry work for aevcial O^P.R. bridgea was in the city for �eferal daya preparing hia csfeiiliiibill for tha bridge to be built hem.,,Be says that thinga are moat iSTOfsble for adund and of the maaonry, foundations and it material close at nKwtfs' oonw there Jxinit^ plenty of thi hand.

John Moe, who baa been agent for the C.P.R; At tbia point for the paat few montba, having come here from Lethbridj^, has been appointed diatrict paaieneer agent for the C.P.R. at Nehipn, to sucoeM J. 8. Carter, who/iji' in charge of the Spokane pifRoe.; The ap^intment is one of the best that could possibly be made, aa Mr. Moe possesaes the very characteristics that firat-claas jpaaaenger men are made of, being a railway man of experience and ability, and one who haa al^ye made friends of the public. Itt this qew and broader iSeld MK Jtoe will make good, and although p he ia succeeding a man who' is ironoed^ to tie one of the beat, yet the Herald believes that 'he will pjfove a worthy auc-cesaor to the {popular "Joe" Carter. Mrs. Moe will remain in Cranbrook for some time, as Mr. Moe will not be able to arrange for a home in Nelson for several weeka.-Cranbrook Herald. Delefatai Appointcl.

We're Ready with Every Summery Need OUTSIDE, the Summer is preparing to garb herself with all the charm and beauty of July. INSIDE, the store has been keyed to a readiness never attained before-summer fashions were never more charming, and never- have we displayed a greater profasion of; summery needs. , ' And it's our growing season, too. The splendid character of Southard values are making for this store new friends every week. Clothing that's All Style "Wearabiltty" and SplciidM Vihic There is only one way to build clothing '-Uiat's the right way-the Semi-Beady^ Way. ..-vt It's no trouble for u clothiug factory to 'build for looks, but skimp(puility^-surface tailoring. But to build for merit, that's the rub-that's where profits yanish. It ttikea more trouble, wore time, more conscientious tailor work, but "the game is worth the candle," at least so the Semi-Ready tailoring stores have found ont-^ they're doing bigger and bigger business every week. And what does Semi*Ready Tailoring mean for the man that wrars it? Latest stvles, perfect fit-clothes that are worth ajl you pajr lor them-and more-and that's a satisfaction that does not come with every suit of clothes you buy. Youths' .^.button Suits $lO.OO-.

By Sunday afternoon it was reported to have made thirty miles. Obviously its time of arrival at the Lothbridge wharf is uncertain An accident in the office last Saturday morning, put the Herald's Monoline out of commission until parts can be received from Montreal. This explains the small size and patchwork appearance of this issue. Praeipitatlon Koeori.
