There, ho was .13 years oltl yesterday-and yet he l.oar|� his party like � boy of seven.-Winnipeg Tribune. PAT IS NON-COMMITTAL,. Nelson News.-"Potrlck Bums, the Calgary cattle magnate, was at the Stroithcona Saturday on one of his usual trips. Mr. Burns met his mining expert, Alexander Sharpe, o( Orient, and a great many other people who called on him. A�slading if he l�nd consented to do so. Mr. Burns said he expected to be here for anotlicr day or so." WHAT MARK DRUMM SAW AND HEARD IN LETHBRIDGE. Land, Innd. land, if you want to got some .sort of idea of the way AllKsKa is growing and settling up this summer, take a tripi to Litk* bridge. There is only ooo topic la LothbridgB that you may talk about. Its land. Every othr man you meet is a real estate and lawl agent. The other is looking for land. And they ara there by the hundi-eds. If not more than one in ten oft*�e people wiio are coming in to look for land, buy and come 'back to settle the growth of the southern part of the province will ^row inmiensely this year. It was told the writer at Leth ridg� the last of the week that there are about twcmty automobiles in Lethbridgo and that nearly all of them are in use every doy showing land soekerii over the country- that is evory day it don't rain which this soason is Kurprisingly seldom for a iflace that has had a wide reputation as being the center of the dry belt. Undoubtedly the southern part of the province is this year, going to have its share of growth. Anent the subject of the automobile as a medium for making land sales, some good stories were told of the manner in which the lahd agents are frequent ly victimiited. It is said that cvery fellow who comes to town from tlie country and wants to gwt a ride in an auto, hunts up a land agen\ and asks to see some land. He gets his ride and when he gets'back he finds a plausible excuse lor not buying. OiM land agent said that afdcr atirae he wan struck with the singular un -nnifniity with which his applicants (or land liked Uio Inml but couldn't close for it until they wen^t back awl rc'poited to the people for whomthey v-ere land looking. Then he took a tumible and thcTOafter iv(u��l toshow land unlc.HS nn applicant could �how he meant business and haed here last week, says the Now York Tribune. He received a lino at Queenslnwn which had the ctTcct of keeping him out of the large gwmos In the smoking room. Ho contented himself viVh pinochle and bridge at 25 cents a hundred points. On the evening liefore landing, one of itis brklge party, none of whom knew that ho was a professionalw'ith abad rocoi'd, proposed changing the ganio to poker. "It's bad practice," said the card sharp, "tl� play poker with strangers. There's too much risk, but it's all right in this case." The others said there was no risk If a man had good sense and kept his eyes open. The deal fell to the professional, and when cards had been drawn by each man he said: "Now I'il show you how much you know Mr. A., you have the winning hand; Mr. B., your throe queens look goo.1, but v.ihat show hiive you aga'inst Mr. C.'s four flves? And what good are they against A.'s (our kings? Does it tally?" It did, and A. said, "Well, it's my pot." "I was afraid that might happen, so I dealt myself a straight flush. " He showed it,, rosa from his chair, and said: "Oivc the steward what 1 put in. This was an object les -son-don't play poker with stran -gers." MINARD'S LINIMENT DIFBTHBRIA. CURES To the Editor of Letbbridge Herald Will you allow mo through the columns of your valuable paper to make a few renMirks on the excel -lent reports of the prcceedings of the Olty Council which appeared in your paper last week. In the first place the council granted the ap -plication of the Steam Laundry for free water. Now, sir, this may be alliTlsht, but will any member of the council let nie know* who is paying for all the free water that is being given away. Are the water con -sumers alone, or is this free water charged up to the pmcral fund of the City? If it is not, a great injustice is being done to the water consumers and the fpancmi tax[jiayera are getting off light. I will now pass on to the arc lights which every one knows ar bad. Will Aid. Cunningham say whether this is a good time to naise this question? To my onind it i;^ not We are all hoping that in n very short time we will be able to illuminate our streets wKh gas as is done at Medicine Bat and it appears to me that H would l>e just as well to be sure about this before expending the amount proposed. As to Firo Pi'otection. Soma time ago a list appeanod in your paper from the Underwriters Association, showing what they required the Council to do and the amount the City wouki benefit financially. But, sir, what do we find? The Fire, Water and Light Committee pick oat some of these items, recommendthat they be carried out and say the city will benefit .3 to 6 per cent. Will this committee say positively that PRAJSE FOR LETBiBRlDOE. (Regina Standai^d.) 'Winter wheat is well headed c�t in Southern Alberta, and will be a good average crop," said Qeorgc E. Hutchinson to the Standard today on hi.s return from hatMirMs^ where ho has Just established a branch office of his architectural firm. "All along the line," ho went on, "crops are looking fine and the spring wheat is hard^Jto Ixjat. Heavy warm shov-ers have been bringing along the grain at a surprising rate. Farmers are feeling good cvwrywhcno and are looking confidently forward to amost (successful season."

You don't want a corn leg, but an elm or willow one. A leg was never made of cork since the worlds' Iw-ginning. But many people think as you 'do, and I'll tell you how the fallacy originated. The inventor of the modem artificial leg-the leg instead of the stick-was John Cork. Cork's logs, or Goric ^egs, were famous around 1810.
