For many a day, the cry of the farmer in every country has been that the city man is ever ready to offer advice, but never ready to extend practical assistance, in tho form of credit. Insofar as the 'Lethbridge district :a concerned, the farmer wlio wants live- stock, will, in future, have only to prove bis worth as a man of .trust and of ability along 'breading and feeding lines, in order to possess him- self of the stock. ,he may "wish or. re- _ quire, for the city man lias arranged to do the biggest and hardest uamely, "to get the money." Early in the year the Rural Rela- tions committee the LeUibridge Board ot Trade acquired a desire to extend this practical foeJp to the 'armers in the district .They.admit that the idea arose from a selfish source, for they suddenly arrired'face to face with the fact that the future prosperity of their city rested entirely, upon the contentment and prosperity of the surrounding com- munities. Lining Up the Bankers A sub-committee was appointed; they busied themselves for several weeks, studied conditions, received suggestions from the greatest live- stock authorities in namely, Dr. Rutherford of the C. P. J. S. Dennis, Hon. Duncan Marshall, and others and proceeded to_ tin task They did the be-t thing first lined up the bankers and! put them on the com mittees. The result is, that they have evolved one best schemes for the purchase of livestock, by farmers on long terms that bas ever been formulated. They ihavo drawn up an agreement, the signatories of which are the guarantors, the trustees' and the bankers. Perxmil Liability The guarantors, dwirlng to provide assistance to tlie farmers in the pur- chase of livestock In the exten- sion of their operations along theso lines tor tbe mutual tenefit of the and tho surrsundjag district, authorize the trustees to enter Into such agreements as .may advisable or necessary to ends; to accept lien notes or chattel mortgages cov- ering the stocli et tbe trustees from such farmeri on terms ot payment to be named by the trustees, and to assign notesi to the bankers. The guarantors further agree to pay the bankers on demand tbe sum of each, on account of or in. liq'uida- tion of any defaults that may be made In the due payments on the notes. When a deficit Is reported to the bankers by the trustees, it is to be assessed equally upon each of the guarantors, no one whom liable for more than this amount. The copies of agreements, as outlined, -were pas's- ed around the meeting last mgb.t._and_ Without hesitation were signed by practically every member present, showing a marked desire on the part of the business men of the city to render, under personal liability, aid to the tillers the soil.'

Might hundred people visited till', market yesterday, at the most con- servative estimate and every pound of produce .was sold. There were 251) women there at one. time, and it was a case of 'first come, first nil way through. The housewives 'of the city, rich and poor, settled i the question that lias bothered the city council for the. past two months, emphatically, surely and decisively, once for all and forever. There is a most decided need for a market, and the old fashioned basket is as popu- lar today as it ever was. There is not the slightest shadow of a doubt hut what the market will be a success. The women v'.o Buying for tlio home tahle-s have de- creed it, and the only difficulty will bc iii getting a supply of goods huge enough to meet their demand. Every woman of prominence in the city pa- trended the market yesterday, and their purpose was sincere. They want quality goods at .tho lowest possible price, and they got them, which is a guarantee that they will come again.
