PROTEST AGAINST NOXIOUS WEEDS FARMERS DEMAND BETTER ELEVATORS FOR BURDETT Burdctt, July largely alien od meeting of the flurdett .Farmers Elevator and Trading Comparer, Um ited, was held on Saturday, last. Tli general opinion wag that, considering the enormous crop to be handled a this point this year, a farmers' ele- vator was essential. Promises fin ancial support were freely given. The directors, as a result or the meeting have arranged for a systematic can vaes of the district, during the n few days, and at a. meeting to be held next Saturday, the question will.be finally settled as to building: this year. Contractors who would wish .to tender for the work should get in com taiuntoation with the" secretary at once, as if it is decided to build, there 'i-be little time to advertise, for tenders. The tumbling mustard question is very serious all.through this The inspector has much too. large ft territory to do anything like justice to. Where a small farmer is at-home it is very easy for, him to be notified to clear his land, but in the cave of absentee owners and'the'larger farms little or nothing is done. In some cases orders are given for the weeds :o' be mowed, but in the opinion of practical farmers this is much worse than letting them stand, as it only cn-oans that they at once blow on to the neighboring land. This IB a most serious question, and one that should have the immediate attention of department. On Friday evening a largely attend- ed meeting wag held In the Highfleid School district, which is about four- teen miles south of this town.' There the farmers unanimously passed re- solutions protesting against the way in which the noxious weed inspection was .being worked, and a copy :was sent to the deputy minister of agri- culture at Edmonton, in the hope that further inspectors might be appoint- ed, and that instructions would be is- sued "for the large to have "par- ticular attention as well'as the small- Preparations for handling the.large crop which is fiiiickly ripening, -are being rapidly completed.

We are glad to see that .another line elevator has started to build More a-re needed. Last week one of the prominent restaurant keepers from" Bow Island decided to his location, aud will open up an up- to-date place here. Speculation is rife as to the inten- tions of the school' trustees, respect- ing the teaching staff for the.coming; winter. The opinion is strong that the late teacher should be re-engaged, but that she requires help, as the numbers are rapidly growing. Vegetables are a' good crop thti year, and if only some one would su pervise the handling of it, a ready market could be found in the large towns, which now rely'on B. C, for their supplies. Already many of. the farmers are trying to obtain -a direct market fct butter and eggs in Lethbridge, which is ihe natural place for them to sell- Freight rites arc, however, high, and the best accommodation for delivery has not yet been secured. The town has been.full during the last week of who are proceeding to and from their work on the gas wells, which arc immediately north of town. It 'is time these wells should be stead of Bow Island. The Alberta. Grain Growers are erecting an elevator here today, and there is every prospect of the farmers erecting another in a very short time, canvassers are out in the district now getting subscriptions for their com- pany.
