NEWS NOTES It seems that there can be no doubt that the cliff dwellers were exterminated by their more savage and warlike neighbors, the men being killed and the women being adopted into the tribe ot the conciuerorg, though in some cases migrations may have become necessary aa a result ot drousht or pressure from outside tribes.

If they liave any rule to go by-following the .recipe with the saiuQ scientific exactness with which tho druggists put up a prescription. Hence their results are equally satisfactory. Thoy never burn or spoil anything, nor spill materials on tho floor; consequently nothing that goes through their hands la wasted. They cook just enough and no more.

McK^ivie The "2" M's Lvgest Distributors of Men's Wear in Southern Alberta. mm LOOK AHEAD (Grain Growers' Guide) It Is now quite evident that the western grain crop this season, despite the excellent preparations that were made for It last autumn and this spring, will bo very light. Drouth in Saskatchewan and Alberta, and to a less extent In Manitoba', has seriously affected tlie harvest for this year. Many districts will not have suflloiont grain to provide seed for the crop ot 1919, and the sanib. conditions which have militated against cereal production have al^o injured the prospect of abundant supplies of toed grain and pasturage for livestock. In the face of this indisputable damage to its crop ot 1918, the West with true western zeal ami spirit will now begin to think only of the need of making due preparatlona tor the season ot 1919. Under no circumstances, should the Canadian west be permitted to recede from the strong agricultural position which has been gained through the successes ot the past three seasons. The first 'Jhing that should be done Is to secure the livestock industry of the West against serious, depletion. Capital holdings of cattle,' sheep and hogs miiRt be retained at all costs In the Interests ot the country. If not In the Interests ot the Individual. The situation Is not really as had aa It was in ^914, because there is money in the country with which to do tWngs that ought to be done. Where hvds of livestock are in danger through lack of teed, supplies of feed should be taken to thetp, or the animals should be taken Immediately to districts where,sustenance can be given them. Dominion and pfovloclal governments must co-operate lo give tho countl'y this soourity. Secondly, every farmed whose supply ot seed grain for next year has been endangered by crop failure, ought to be given assurance that he is tree to go ahea4 with the ottltJvatlon ot his land tor 1919, and that seed grain will be provided for him in due time. Fortunately,, crop conditions In the United States are more favorable than they a�"o In Canada, nnd arrangements can be made, early to reserve guffloient qliantltles of good seed to provide tor the needs oi next spring, before do- tormlning what the exportable surplus ot cereals from North America shall be. It ought to be remembered that after the disastrous drouth of 1314 In the West came 1915 with its unprecedented abundance of grain. The great harvest ot 1915 was due In no small measure to the fact that as soon as the damage of the previous summer became apparent, the farmer commenced to plow under his devastated areas and to cultivate his land for the following spring. Tho land was prepared, and. In the Idle mqntUs which followed. Its stores of moisture were replenished. It was an ideal seed-bed that received tho crop ot 1915. The chances are that history will repeat Itself In 1918 and 1919 It proper precautions are taken at once by tho governments and the people. The watchword of the West during the coming months must be "forward," and there can be no regrets. BOSTONIANS AT T HE MAJESTIC TONIOHT ;
