SOI VERY FINE Though Generall,v Speaking Crop a Failure, There Are Some G6od Fields HAY S n U Gets $3,000 Damages in His Action Against Burton of Cardston Judgment hae been signed by Mr. .lustlce Scott in the action of Ibey vs. Uurton whereby tho plaintiff Ibey is claiming, damages of $3000 and costs together with an injunction restraining the defendant Burton from carrying on business as Burton's Novelty Storo in tho town of Cardston. This case was hoard before Mr. Jus-lice Scott and Jury at th6 spring session ot tho Supremo Court, the Jury bringing in a verdict for tho plaintiff for tho above amount ot damages. At the time Mr. Justice Scott directed that the motion for Judgment stand over for a special application which was heard at Edmonton (n Juno, when ho directed that Judgment be entered ea above. The case has attracted wide atten-! bo Balled tioforc Oct. 1; G. Cumrainp, Though this section of Alberta will have probably only a 15 per cent crop taking the whole railway district Into consideration, some very fair fields are being reported, oven on dry land. One good field reported Is a quarter section belonging to the Western Transfer Co., 12 miles northeast ot the city. This is dry land which was broken and well prepared last year. The whoat stands about three feet In height, and tho heads are filling remarkably well. Jt has had no more rain than other districts, and looks like a fifteen bushel ylold at least. This bears out the contention that the best crops of tho year are to bo found on land broken early in 1917 and well prepared. The same farm has oats standing four foot in height which look good for 40 bushels. A sample of wheat from the Baldcrson farm south of the Pot Hole has fine heads, but they will need more rain to make them fill. This wheat is Just past ,tlie blossom stage. On the farm ot Ben Pawson at Coaldale there is a stand ot wheat that will go 35 bushels. This is irrigated land, which has been in alfalfa for several years and was broken last year for this year's crop. It is considered the finest field in tho country. Geo. 0. Korr ot the Smith Farms east of tho city told the Herald today that tho first cutting of alfalfa is prstc-tlcally harvested and will bo about three-quarters of a crop. The outlook for tlio second'crop, however, is e.xcoUent as this is considered tho best kind of alfalfa -weather. The hay crop is evidently going to be somewhat better than at first reported. Sweet Grass, July 13.-At an !n-(lucat held hero Saturday afternoon, called by Coroner Ridol, of Shelby^ to invosllKato the causes leading to the accidental dor.tli ot Th ,-.n!;8 Ilcnry Biv-kor, a verdict was brought in by tho Jury that tho docoasod met his death accidentally v/hon he v/as struck by nn automobile driven by R. J. Campbell, known la Sweet Grass as "Diamond Dick." Although, ',t Is understood, a few p.irtios know who was blamed for the accident, the matter was kept a sec-rot until tlio inquest was held. After hearing tho testimony ot T. M. Huff and Goo. C. Davis, who wero In company with tho deceased at the time ot the accident. Art Clark was called to the witness stand by County Attorney Black. Clark testified that he had backed a Kord car from the Sweet Grass garage, where ho was employed, a tew minutes before the accident took place, and had turned It over to its owner, "Diamond Dick." S. W. Mitchell, who is also employed at tho garage, next took the stand, testifying that Campbell had returned to tho garage a short time later, appeared to bo excited, and rented a car, stating that ho had run over someone and wanted to take him to the hospital. Campbell was sent for and placed on tlie atand and told such a straightforward story, which corresponded so closely to that of the other witnesses, tho Jury, a tew minutes after the trial, brought In a verdict of accidental death. Campbell claims that ho was on his way home, , and after Clark had left tho car he took the steering wheel and had gone but a short distance when he saw someone in the road but could not stop in time to avoid a colllaion. Becoming excited, he put his toot on the "toot-feed" instead of tho break, shooting ahepd at a greater speed. The emergency brake ^Vas also in bad order, and it was not until he liad reached Mint hill that he could bring tho automobile to a stop, i Ho claims ho returned immediately to the garage and tried to procure a car to convey tho Injured, party to the hospital, but this had already been done. NVITE IRRIGATION Delegates From Here Will Convey the Invitation To Convention l^ke MoQregor, farmer. Lethbrldge will invito the Western Canada Irrigation Association to come to Lethbrldge with its convention in 1910. That has been definitely decided. A letter is being forwarded to the secretary of the association by the city council containing a formal invitation to make Lethbrldge the convention city next year. O. R. Mar-noch, who will bo one of tho dole gates will carry an invitation from the Board of Trade, and S. S. Dunham, another Board of Trade delegate, will Invite the irrigatlonlsts on behalf ot the farmers ot the district, If Mayor Hardle, who Is now at the coast, attends tho Nelson convention noxt week^ho will convey a personal In vltatlon from the otty. It is several years since the Irrigatlonlsts ot the west have met In Lethbrldge, and as tho convention rotates between east and west of the mountains, it is felt that it is Lethbrldge's turn to secure it. Tho deepened interest In irrigation In Southern Alberta this year is one ot tlio particular reasons for seeking to secure the meeting for Lethbrldge in 1919. Word has boon received from Wm. S. Adonis ot Fniist. who wroli' first to tho hoard ot trade rogurniiu: h;iy in the north country, thatduriuK du' Inst week tho country has been ovor run with hay seekers until no more hay Is loft for lease or purchnsr.
