Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, JULY 27, THREE CROPS IN THE TABER DISTRICT (Staff Correspondent of the Calgary Taber, July bound, declared as he looked from the car window over the vast expanse of beautiful prairii? west of Lcth- bridge: "Land for a hundred yoars yetj land for everybody." It would appear BO, to be sure, but when one realizes the way they are beginning to plow he begins, to be- li.eve that land is really scarce. Down at Tabor last year two steam plows were brought in. of them did no- thing at all, and the oth.e'r only a This spring six more outfits were taken in, and all of them are plowing still. Besides the steam and gasoline outfits there are a few big concerns plowing with horses. Every farmer has taken up with the fad, and the rusult will be that next year they will have three acres to one this season. It is really quite remarkable the way they are reaching out on the frontier. Great fields are being pre pared for the sowing and at Taber and east, toward Mediciine Hat, the good work is going on in such a fashion as to make it appear quite j certain that the easterner is wrong. time was the grass he asked and was told that the green blade began to show itself in March and April. Six to eight weeks before the grain was sown! Gat the Early Growth The secret of successful growing in a dry country will be found to let thy grain grow when the grass grows. The grass is matured now and turning brown, but the late Color, Flavor, Fragrance are. the strong points of If IK- travels that throe years hence he same route will siare in wonderment at a solid field of grain. "They this same eastern- er declared, with. assurance. "That is why the fields look so fiue." Rainfall in Season "Wrong again. They do not irri gate the sugar beets, even down at Raymond. The water flows through the main canal and nans away." The one thinig about Albsrta is this that the rain falls when it is needed. See some' countries, and good ones too, the rainfall begins in the autumn and ceases at. the end of spring, just when the crops are in the middle growth. spring sower expects nature to keep her water cart going lor the sake ofj justifying his indolence. Although this IB the first year that Taber has realized that fanning will pay, the harvest there will nei a snug little sum. Last year the marketed crop amounted to bushels. This year it will be twice the amount, and next year ought to have past the quarti-r million mark. Country Well Settled Travellers by rail cannot begin to comprehend the extent of settlement and fanning operations. The land is practically all taken up to twenty- five miles north of Taber and to that distance, and even further, it is said, the homesteaders are growing crops for seed and feed. The bridge across the Belly river will be completed by next ye-ar, when all this country will market at Tab-.r. Now they are obliged to haul to Lethbridge, a very RAM LAL'S PURE TEA It's RICH, CLEAR COLOR, FRAGRANCE and DE- FLAVOR have made it boats of friend-.

The land is mostly With his genial ways and wide ac- It has been said that Taber is too j dry, but owing to thn fact that the rain falls during the growing season this assertion is refuted. The rain- baauUfully level, and one can stand up in his buggy and watch the teams rind steamers miles away. Tabir Reaching Out by the way, is not to sniffed at. Besides all these farming developments, on more to the north than in each other direction, she has five coal mines operating, and a coal deposit of unknown extent. The town is just arousing itself, and to reach for everything in sight. It was first founded by the Mormons, 1 who purchased a section of land and divided it into acre lots.- On almost each of these lots is a litule house and garden patch. The main street was, in the first instance, away to fall at Taber for May was -1.30 inches, thc north> hal{ a mije the raii- and for June it was 5.08 inches, road Later a boom started along equitably distributed through half: a street nearer to the right o{ way> the days. Full Heads of Grain The fields at Taber, they do not show so rank a growth as farther southwest, show enormous heads and plump, fai buries. The color is ex- cellent, and the yield for fall wheat will run around 35 bushels. The fall wheat is fast maturing, and will be cutting within the week. In fact binders are now moving in some fields, but thuy are in fields in a narow strip of country through which the soil is very sandy, and the crops are the second or third on a singlo plowing. But the fall wheat on sum mer fallowed ground is ten days "ahead of Cardston. Spring wheat is all headed out and filling nicely, and it, is difficult to see hotr any thing can prevent it from maturing; but spring wheat, in the opinion oL, the writer, is a bad thing to fool with. If the rains do not continue, those who have spring wheat will be regretting it to the tune of about 15 bushels to thc acre short. Thc writer was shown fields that were sown in June. "What and developed to a considerable ex- tent. At length an enterprisinig chap bought the land adjacent to the road, plotted it and sold it to town build ors, so that now while the city is building directly along the right of way on both sides, the business streets wind lure and there away north into the country. There is quaintance he should prove a valu- able acquisition to the store espec- ially as he knows thc business. On Wednesday night the great ev- ent in connection with the Masonic Lodge in Coliman took place. This was the full and complete organiza- tion or confirmation of organization of the Coleman Lodge. The Most Worshipful Grand Master Canon Hog bin of Calgary was present and he was assisted in the performance ol the brilliant and imposing ceremonies connected with the proceedings by District Deputy Scott of Lethbridge One of the chief and most important parts of the business transacted was the presentation of the Charter b> the Grand Master. This was done, with all pomp and impressiveness t.hat are inseparable from such occa sions in thc great Masonic Order, and from that moment the Coleman Lodge till then running on the dispensation of the Grand Lodge took its place ful fledged on the working basis and equa ity with all other lodges of the orde similarly organized.
