The Leth bridge Farm Three years ago the Lethbridge farm which is located about three miles from the centre of the prosperous city, was rank, unbroken prairie, used us a grazing ground for the stock- of neighboring ranches. Today it is a well" cultivated farm, to which hundreds of the farmers of Southern Alberta resort to WAtch. the progress of the .wide range of experi- ments being carried on with the dif- ferent cereals, roots, etc., and to find out by .seeing for themselves what are really the best methods of cul- tivating the sources of agricultural wealth in This part, of the province.

Fairfield is a firm believer in the value of windbreaks as a protec- tion of crops, both in winter and summe.r and the cultivation of the ground and the planting of trees was among the. things commenced in the early history of tho farm. The. wind- breaks., which will be extended com? around the farm, with a num- ber of shorter cross breaks, consists of three rows of trees-, the outer two consisting of ash. poplar, Manitoba maple, and evergjeens. and the in- ner row of shrubs and ornamental trees of different varieties. In 1907. a few acres of irrigated land were placed under cultivation for an or- chard and a considerable number of fruit trees arid small fruits were planted out. A windbreak of two rows of trees, twelve feet apart, the outer one consisting of cottonwood.s, and the inner of was waTrr. uable data in regard to raising this valuable fodder crop, and the raising of alfalfa with fi-i.i with- .adjoining out irrigation, soil'and its prepare-; tion. inoculation.

To therijb.t some twenty I yards .away and jost at.'tfaes end of the street, "she saw the figures, of three 'men. In the middle was one who .bulked like a young with his paunch not grown. He was flanked by two lean fellows who looked small beside him. She could not see the faces plainly since the light from the square was behind them. They seemed to be standing there and look- ing past the sign of thejSilver Cock along the street A measured, military footfall sound- ed on her Jeft Turning her head, she saw a'voting man walking, with head bent down and acms behind him. The line of light struck full on "him. He was plain to see as by broadest day. He wore a costume strange to her eyes black sheepskin cap, a sheepskin tunic, leather breeches and high unpol- ished rough, plain dress. Yet a broad red ribbon crossed it and a .star glittered on the breast The only weapon was a short, curved scimitar. It was the ancient costume of the bailiff of Volseni, the head of that clan of shepherds who pastured their flocks fight Very making no sound, she took the heavy massive bronze filrure of the it painfully in both her hands and poised it halfway over the window sill. Then- she turned her eyes down again to- watch the mouth of the porch. Her- rat was in that hole! Yet suddenly the- prince came into her view. He circled halfway around Mistitch, then sank on- one knee. She beard him guard the captain's lunges with lightning quick movements of his nimble scimiter. He was trying the old trick they bed prac- ticed for hundreds of years at Tolseni follow his parry with an upward ripping stroke under the adversary's sword, to strike the inner side of his forearm and cut the tendons of the wrist This trick bir Captain Mistitch, a. man of the plains, did riot know. A bellow of of life! The prince bad made his stroke; the biH men of Volseni were jwtifled of tneir pnpil. Mistitch's big. sword clattered on the flags. Facing his enemy, with his back to the porch, the prince crooched mo- tionless oh his knee, but it was death to Mistitch to try to reach t sword with bis unmaimed hand. It was Sophy's minute.
