Granuin's grain is growing and town is sure to grow, for its grain crop is "assured now for year. Men who ought to know, .-say that this year's crops are the best yet and as good or better than any in Alberta. Spring wheat and fail are both good crops there will be a large increase over -last year. Last winter there were four eleva- tors and two more are now staked to be built this year. Of last .year's crop at least seven hundred bushels were handled at -G-ranum but this year it is estttnated -that one million bushels will be mar- keted at Granum. The elevator sid- ing- and the passing track are beTng flats. There is pleaty-of timber on the hig-het ridges. The ranchers use this timber for fencing, fuel and build ing material. iemgthened so as to accommodate the increased business.

Wheeler, its assistant chief mountaineer, who died on the 6th instant, after a se- vere illness of eight month's. Mr. Wheeler was an original member of the Alpine and an early mem- ber of the American Alpine club. He was the son of Capt. p. Wheel- er, of "The Kilkenny, Ire- land, was born in London, England, in 1872, and came, to Canada with his parents in 1876. He served an i 'apprenticeship of five years as a steel engraver with American Bank Note company, of Montreal and Ottawa; but at its close accepted the position of typographical draughts- man in the of his brother, the topographer of the department of the interior. During the photo-topographic sur- vey of the Canadian Rocky Moun- tains he ascended" many of the high- est peaks "and attained great skill aj> an Alpine This skill was utilized to the fullest extent by the club, of which-he-was a devoted mem- ber. -He was one of its favorite guides; his great strength, patience and even temper rendering him par- ticularly well adapted to such a ser- vice. Many of the club's members graduated to-active-membership by his aid. Narrow Esctptijr In the conduct ofva photo-topo. graphical- survey it is necessary to- ascend to the summit of the highest peaks- to obtain the. photographs from- which the maps are made.

Our most sincere sympathy -is not only with, his relations, but with the young...Alpine club .of, Canada, who mourn his loss, a. loss that will be greatly felt in Alpine circles during the present year of strenuous activity while the club is entertaining -re-, nowned Alpine men from the British Isles.
