As ono looks over the large grain fields and large patches of breaking one wonders why a railway has not been built sooner into this rich coun. try. Oats and wheat are headed out and of rank growth.

There was more competition for lots on King street though the prices were the lots sold well above the upset prices. The Pioneer Lumber Co. .certainly have faith in the town" of Barons for they were among the heaviest buyers.

District About Lloydminster Is Now a Scene of Ruin and Desolation Lloydminster, Sask., July tails are just to hand of the awful havoc wrought by a cyclone which visited Golden Valley, eight miles south of Lloydminster.. What was for- merly a prosperous valley, filled with the homesteads of prosperous settlers with well built houses extensive improvements, is today a picture of desolation and ruin beggars de- scription. The storm itruck Lloyd-' minster in the an hour the lightning never ceased., while thc thunder rolled and the rain came down in torrents, simply flooding the town and locality. In Golden Valley, heavy wagons and farm machinery may be seen twisted and broken in fantastic shapes. A heavy iron cultivator was lifted bodily" and carried 200 yards into an oat field. Pigs were lifted bodily out of their corrals, the latter being .left in- tact. In a lake may be seen above the water the tips of the shafts of a buggy, whilst houses are to be seen in any number turned upside down. Such heavy articles as binders, stoves and discs are scattered all over the prairie. Mr. Mackenzie, a farmer, had his home, blown to pieces, all that re- mains of it today being the lumber of which it built, scattered over an area of half a mile. That the cyclone was something in tho .shape of a whirlwind is shown by tV face the barn of one settler met the house of another end-on in mid-air, and today, is all that remains of either. DR.
