It is true we would all like improvements made in om- water system in order that better water and a higher pressure should be suijplied. Conditions are not improving and this important work cannot be undertaken until next year, unless there is a sudden loosening of money on the bond market. : Taken all in all, Lethbridge is the best equi])ped city of its size probably in all Canada. We have every'modern convenience land, in many respects, are very much in advance of other cities considerably larger.  TREES AND FRUIT \ . IRRIG.\TED LAND is not the only place where trees will grow and fruits flourish. If you possess that.idea banish it from ' your mind. Let us use the Felger farm as further proof of a mixed farming argument. Trees are planted.very largely around I the fivrm home and they are thriving, and-in a few years the ' roadwhy will be shaded by \ery fine trees. And strawberries are being raised on tliis with success. Twobusiiels were gathered iii one day this week. . The farmer who goes at mixed farming in the right way can make it a success, and there are many exarnples throughout Soutliern Alberta to bear out this contention. Harking back to trees, nothing will make the farrn a better place to live than an abundance of trees. It. is true they need attention but they are worth the attention. Any farmer with well developed trees on his I'arm valiies his property at several dollars more an acre on account of them. But the money value is not to be compared with the comfort and glory they bring to the surroundings of the farm home. Warden John S. Kennedy Is shown In the inset and the prison in the main picture. The Westchester Grand Jurj reported ::"lt holds a nfienace for the mental, moralandph/Kical health of anyone confined In it."' Thereisan aglta tion now to demolish the famous old prison. of Finance W^hite declared against it in his speech in the House last session, but the trend of opinion is that Mr. Borden will take that coiirse, especially since he has liaised so; many barriers against a Canadian navy. Such a policy will not be a surpi-ise; it is only to be expected. The Prime Minister, once so strongly against contribution, has been won over to the centrahzation policy and it appears likely tliat he will adhere to that school of thought long enough to attempt to commit Canada permanently to contributions. However, Canada is not hkely to sanction any tribute-paj'ing policy. , ALFALFAiON DRY LANB  P ARMERS don't enthuse oVer the idea of-alfalfa on dry land. As it is, however, railroads on occa-l Many of tliem think ijs prospects for developinent are slim 5 a^d there ar^dsThanv^sianffiii^in the I T^ that it is a waste of Ume^and money seeding it. That's Just I. Ifig^easy^bheyifGrtheraibKKidbut wher^ thefarmer is mistak|jl. ,:We make;'!!^ pretence at wide knowledge of agriculture, but we know goq^'alt'alfa wheir we see it and Sve are satisfied any farmer whois dubious about this alfalfa-on-dry-land business will be con^'inced that it will thrive on dry land, if he" takes a look at the'same field" we saw at the Felger farm a few miles soutli of tlie city. Mi\, felger reports a OUR POINT OF VIEW Spud the weeds or the inspector will catch you. Every man owes it to himself and the city to cut down the weeds.; It; would be effort will expended.- It is a question to be thoughtfully cbrisider-ed whether the country lends itself to the successfuLprodu6tion of winter wheat or jipt. Considering the success realized in growing spring Avheat the wonder is tliat any farmer,would incyr thc':atixiety attendant on.the^-Aviater^vsniety. 'i ,.� n-the cUstrict that a mail with spimk has-been appointed weed inspector;. The. Lethbridge district is?thi&;ot:thew'6rsl afflicted; WM^'weeds in- the province.  Go to them^ft%.ii�aiig,/-. . ^If, responsible-that which ended on March 31, 1913--thtj-revenue from ta.\' ation will be found, when the returns are complete, to have been about $13()-000,000, or on an estimated population of 7,500,000 about $18.18 pisr head. For the current year Ending March 31, 1912, the estiraatpa show an expenditure from consolidated fund ot over. ?59,000,000. It.Is quite certain that further supplementaries at next session will swell the consolidated fund expenditure to over $150,000,000, ^yhlle the total outgo, Including capital expenditures and rallwivy subsidies, will be at least ?22P,000,000. Estimating the population at 7,800,000 during the current^ year, each man, woman and child will have to pay taxes of somewhat over $20 per head to keep abreast of current expenditure, and at the end of the year, the debt, which Is now down to $42 per head, will have Itfcreaaed again, to almost $50. If -Mr. jV^ite does any figuring at all on the basis of taxaUon and ex-neadlture.per-head of, population ho must be staggered at the result oC his twenty, months in offloe. - During that time he has taken almost fifty million dollars more out of the pockets of the Canadian people than Mr Fielding- took, m any corresponding period of his^aerviop aa- Finance Minister. No wonder.' the 'Montreal Ga-.i6tie aBks'if-;;tt I's nottinieto alow up, ^jei^foot on ,A.merican soil again he would be behind prison bars it: a minute. '.l . - NOT TAKING ANY CHANGES teJGW AND AGAIN reports appear that there will be a general ^?^t|oa Ahis|yfear. The Borden government may, be foohsh^ (lit it is^liardly possible that it is so fooKsh as to go fo-tiie*6bnnfry "whenmoney is-ao-hard to get that we'can't even ihipoi-t ehougK "fo meet ordinary,demandsi ;An appeal to the ^puntry on such a policy, especially at the present time, would mean the annihilation of the ConserN'ative party. The Canadian people want the $35,000,000 put in x:irculation in Canada.' They don't want it taken out of the coimtry. , ' / ON THE RIGHT TRACK /St)MMlSSIONER TRACY is moving quietly but from all we \^ can gather, he is sowing good seed all the time and it will not-'be any fault qf his if we do riot locate some good industries in, tins city. He is coUecdng a mass of valuable information which will be most eiTective in impressing upon manufacturers , the pecuHar advantages this city possesses as an industrial centre. In seeking to bring to our midst industries that will consume our /natural products, he is displajdng wisdom. These are the industries we need; these are the industries that will flourish and these f-^~ arri.the industries that will be helpful to the agricultural com-"i^uEilty. Nlr. Felgei-'s'experience is proof that .alfalfa, can be made a real Serviceable and profitable dry land crop in this district* The farni^r^yho wants to get into mixed: farming,'having reached the wise conclusion that reliance on wheat is a foolish systein, \vill do well to seed a portion of his farm to alfalfa. With proper attention it will readily become the most valuable yield on his farm.,.,With it at.hand the cq^tse to mixed farming will be made much easier. ; v THE BOARD OF TRADE THE BOARD GF TRAJ^E.'Jjiiiursday noon day luncheous should be well aftendedl hThejt'give an opportimife'i fbr business men to mingle together and discuss affairs of interest to themselves,"and to the city. When the same feature was in vogue a few years ago more interest was taken in the board arid greater results were accomplished than at any time since. President Ives and liis executive in i-eviving the luncheon meetings took a course that should revive more interest in the business of the board. Mayor Hardie's suggestion at yesterday's meeting that members of the city council should attend these meetings is worthy of adoption. The city council and the board have much in common occupying their attention and an exchange of views on matters concerning the welfare of the city would be helpful to both bodies'. The decision to visit the district north of the city is also to be commended. Our business men are not as well acquainted with the country as they should be. This trip will widen their knowledge of the great district at our door and should also lielp to bring this city into closer business relations with the communities surrounding vis. A series of trips taking, in all sections of the country tributary to this city might v.ell follow during the course of the next month or two. We would suggest that a two or three day tour be made of the country southeast of the city 'rhlAiitP^^n-.Mr^^^ nerve' of the Liberals in;eWteriftg 'tf--t>l*|tesC�Jl3i8ft^Y|ro.."jdsf>fiy mr. candidate-mho prqlesLfV^An expression of coh^eqlnjftioti^at. a "protest suggests' large fp'osrfbillties of good rpa'Sotis fbri-the-^^^^^^^^^ Even-if there'were., absolutely.nqthihg But personal' spite liack of ;;jtjief.,c,harges, ,the:Mqdicipe;>Hat city'couiicil should insist on tlic hHlest possible invgstiga^^^^^ chief of .poKce; The aiie|^tiQn^^^ usefuhitjss as a police oflTicer would.fepW^ there,be any suggestion of doubt as to4ii�honesfy^-^T'i>?^ What Others Think EXPERIENCE WORTH MUCH \ LOCAL FARMER, who has given the operations on his farm *\ close attention during the past three years, remarked the �thprdflv "If I had to go over the past two or three years again or imec uaj iw^^^ .^^ --.....' , " ,r r .?ivhich are sei-ving me well." ' Experience is verily a great and most effective teacher. In l^'lptVe^years Trom now the farmer who is farming, and not mining, 'I'^iUillbok back upon 1910, 1911 and 1912 as the most helpful l^eais of his career on the farm. These years, had their draw-^lBi9|?^s liut in the light of experience these drawbacks can be over-fj-'cgme'. . It costs money to gather knowledge. Our farmers have fwdund.tliat out, but the knowledge obtained by experience during! �'^-Itiie past three years will make mopey-and better farmers-in %|iji|!"conung years.
