"THE CANAL COMES CHEAP." People who have been reading 01 the Panama canal no doubt have of ten wondered how tho United Suite was going to meet the expenditure 01 that wonderful undertaking but ii writer in a recent issue of a nuiga zino points out that this canal is es tiiuated to have cost up to the present. He says that the corn grown in the United States in one year produces a revenue 121 times greater than this amount. The value of the wood cut from the forests 01 the United States is 20 times great- er; the hay taken from its lields is 11 times greater; the revenue from its sheep 4. times greater, the revenue from, its swine S times greater and the horses in one state. New York, are worth more than the canal.. The fish taken out of the waters of the United States brought more than the present cost of the canal. This writer says for a rich country "the canal comes and if his figures are to be relied up- on, and they appear to be ail right, his conclusions will not only bo a surprise to a great many people but ought to aid in convincing the peo- ple of the neighboring republic that iho cost of the construction of tht canal is a mere bagatellp compared with the great revenue of that coun- try.

STAY IN THE CATTLE BUSINESS Advice Given Farmers and Ranchers by De- partment of Agricult- j ural Official CAR OF 5 SALT Duncan Anderson, who is connected with the live stock division of the Dominion Department of Agriculture (tin- department of Animal spoke in tho Kiro Hall at Lothbridge Juno before a gather ing ul ranchers and turners. lie stated that tlu-re seems to be a ten- dency in Western Canada of the peo pk; who have been engaged in raising cuttle going oV of thv business to take up farming. Continuing, he said: "1 know some of the Iftrg ranchers art- spaying the heifers and are offering thoir she stock for .sale, and are going out of the cattle busi- ness into tlif horse bu.sim-.ss.

It will give the news of every colony and hopes to keep all parts of the Empire in close touch. In that way Cana- da, Australia, South Africa, India, and other of the lands owing alleg- iance to Great Britain will be ai'le to keep tab on each other. The weekly is well edited and covers the ground it has outlined as its purpose splendidly. Only one criticism we have to offer and that is in regard to its corres- pondence from this provinre. The correspondent resides at Edmonton and is supposed to furnish no doubt, the news of the entire province, at least the important, occurrences, but so far, Edmonton has "been getting the lion's share of attention. The correspondent should aim to be im partial. of the United States. Walkerville, Out., June Two r val factions of young boys met o the new bridge that is being bui here Saturday afternoon and in scuffle five-year old Edward was pushed over the edge of tl bridge to the tracks below. The cli find that all ovi-r today good demand for cattle tance was 23 feet. The bones of his feet were broken and he also sus- tained serious injuries to bis ntrck and back. His condition is serious. i the United States, Britain, and here i Canada, and if you go out of breed- it will throw a further shortage ito Canada, and I want to impress n you the importance of staying with cattle. I am speaking now of onditions in the Dominion of Can- da. I think I have been over the ountry pretty well, and wish to say hat where farmers are hard pressed ml there is a scarcity of money I lo not know of any line of agriculture hat will help them out of the hole better and surer than cattle. You always sell them. The price may be at times a little low, but if you lave the quality (and it is in the con- trol of the individual rancher or farm- er to regulate the quality of his stock) you can always sell it even if the price i.? somewhat low. Take out exports to Liverpool, about eleven and one-half million dollars a year. Out of that, say seven million dollars is exported from central and western Ontario. Those localities will not increase that export of cattle, as they are becoming more and more dairy provinces in Eastern Canada. Quebec is a dairy province, and the maritime provinces are dairy provinces. It is common practice there with the farmers in the month o! November to put 50 or GO iimil putri on no fii-h if affi'ctul with mange. And it contagious. You who are cattle men will remember that in 1904 it was compulsory to dip, also in 1905. In it was culh'd off and in 1907 was compulsory, and in 1908 they are not obliged to dip unless ac tually affected with mange. The pro vince is divided into districts. J.C Hargrave, of Medicine Hat, is In spector for the whole province. Dr G alii van, I think, is the Inspecto here. Each of district inspec tors hAi one. to three range riders ride the range during March, April, May and June. The Department knows from their whose cattle are affected with inaugc and whose are not, and they send out those required to dip. If a, range rider' sends in a report that there is mange in a of cattle that have been' in with mangy, cattle, they are required to dip those affected nd those that have been in contact nth the mangy cattle as well. Tho tandard dip is a lime and sulphur lip. In some places oil was used ast year, but it does not scern to have )een at al) effective. Where they dip- >ed with lime uud sulphur and did heir work thoroughly they have not nuch mange now, but in some places vhere oil was used the mangy cuttle lave increased. In not many years, f we are careful to do the work thor- oughly with the lime and sulphur lip we will be able to eradicate mange from Southern Alberta and raise the quarantine. Just as soon as a sectior is clear of mange, the quarantine wil be removed from that section. We ask your hearty co operation and suppor in the work." In answer to a question Mr. Ander on stated that the method of quar antine was to serve notice on th owner of mangy cattle that they hav to be kept either under fence or kep from being with other cattle out 01 the open range., nnd those affected dip ped. "If allowed to roam the prairi and come in contact with other cattl then the whole outfit will have to b rounded up and dipped. If a ma breaks quarantine when served with notice, he will be liable to a heav fine. I want none of you to think fo a moment that the Department is try- ing to put something onto you that SNAP ron CASH ACRE LOT on Wallwork Addition. No reasonable of- fer refused. The C.

It is building a million dollar bridge here to reduce mileage and enable distances more rapidly. to be covered Cowley It also just completed a branch from Toronto to its main line at Sud bury, which will reduce the time of the trip to Winnipeg by eight hours. This road cost many millions of dol- lars and goes through a country pre- viously without railroad connection. Up until this branch was completed the C.P.R. carried its Toronto and Western Ontario traffic over the G. T.R. to North Bay. THE VICE PRESIDENCY Time was when the great parties of the United States chose men. of great, ability and prominence for the vice presidency but as the York Sun says "the job has to be peddled ar- ound now." Yet the man who chosen vice-president may be presi- dent some day just as Theodore lloosevelt took the presidential chair when President McKinley was assas- sinated. Fortunately Roosevelt prov ed himself bip enough to fill the shoes and he was given another term of of- fice. The custom, however, has been to be careless in the selection of the vice presidential candidate and that carelessness may some day put in the presidential chair, by right of suc- cession, a man not big enough for the job. Cowley, June J. E. Davi- son has disposed of his ranch just north of the village to Mr. J. C. Drexvry, at a handsome figure. The exact amount has not transpired but Lhe deal was a cash transaction. Mr. Drewry has added a fine wheat grow- ing quarter section to his already ex- tesive holdings, and goes into mixed farming on a large scale. A considerable addition has been made to the old Coghill shack, made necessary by the arrival of Mrs. G. Young who joins her husband, toge- ther with their daughter and son-in- law, Mr. John Fisher, and children who arrived the other day from Wack ngton, Cumberland, Eng. Mr. A. II. Knight has begun the erection on the west of his store, of a two-storey house which will be oc- cupied on completion by Mr. A. H. Gunn.

They do not keep many cattle around the farm in the sum- mer. From these cattle that they feed they throw back an abundance of. good rich manure onto the land. During the last fourteen years, the farmers of the province of Ontario have had from their farms double the amount of- money they received from their farms previously without putting any more money into the land. In these eastern provinces, the- pop- ulation is beginning to centre to the towns and cities and there will be a larger increase in consumption at home of meat products, and exports of cattle will not increase from that part of Canada. About four and one- half million dollars of the exports of cattle come from. west of the Great Lakes. For a number of years the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatche- wan which are grain growing provinc os have not exported and live stock to Britain, and the Province of Al- berta and the southern portion of Saskatchewan is where this four and one half million dollars of exports comes from. There is a trade that will increase. I do not say the old style of ranching will is pass- ing away, but I leel that grain will bo grown and cattle will be fed during the winter time nnd you will cease Frank Frank, June Moore, late manager of the C.

By this time your grass fed cattle sold in the fall reach the export markets it is nearly they come in competition with the poultry and pork which are in demand at that season of the year. Times are chang- ing in this western country. I noticed on the line north of here nearly 000.00 worth of finished cattle havf gone out this spring. I think it will pay. From High Rivor north about 25 or 30 miles T was with a buyer. We went to two or three, or four farm- ers' places. This man bought the cat- tle. They had never been inside of u building, all the shelter they had was a hay-rack on the west side of the corral; had been fed hay and a little oats and a little mashed grain. Thoy were all under three years old and brought over sixty dollars a head. They were bought in one day, fed and watered, and the next morn- ing got 4 l-2c live weight with 2 1-2 per cent, shrinkage and practically sixty dollars a head. T t is pretty nice that money coming into a farm of half or three quarters of a section. I believe it will pay to finish some of your cattle in the winter and have them ready to sell in the beginning or middle, of May, and not throw thorn onto the'markct in the fall when beef is cheap and when it is hard to get cars on account of the movement of the wheat and other crops.
