No matters that had any tendency to cause any war of words arose to en- liven the proceedings. All was as calm as a frozen mill-poiid. I have been telling Dad that they did a very foolish thing when they decided to i pay old Michael's board bill. Old Mike was deserted by his relations who should have taken care of him in ins old age and was left stranded in the city. A-generous hearted hotel keeper kept him for seveial weeks and then asked the city to foot the bill and to put up the necessary to send the old man away. The city fathers made up their minds to send him to the Devil-----'s Lake where he belonged and did so, but were a little dubious about paying the old man's board when they had not au- thorized the hotelkeeper to keep him at their expense.

Who is 'putting up so much per diem for the delay? Chief Gillespie certainly made a scatteration of the tin-horns that had congregated in the city. He gave them to understand that he was af- ter them and they knew what that meant. A word to the wise is suffi- cient and these gentlemen who prey upon the ignorance and weakness of others took a tumble to themselves. The proprietors of the joints got leary and politely asked the rounders to vamoose. The notoriety that comes from the arrest of such characters is not pleasant for those v men who try to pass themselves off as res- pectable citizens, lows appropriate When young fel- their employer's money to pay gambling debts and the cheques come back with the en- dorsement of a certain colored gen- tleman on them, it is coming pretty close home to the fellows who got the money. There is not a more low- down class of cattle travelling loose upon this little green planet than these tin-horn artists unless it is the man of pretending respectability who allows them around their premises and allows them to use their places of business as a means of skinning the unfortunates who do not know any better than to try to beat them at their own game when the, odds of loaded dice and marked cards are against them.

For a number of years the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatche- wan which are grain growing, provinc- es 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 feel that grain will be grown and cattle will be fed during the winter time and you "will cease marketing your cattle in the months of August, September and October. By this time your grass fed cattle sold in the fall reach the export markets it is nearly Christmas and 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 have gone out this spring. I think it will pay. From High Eiver north about 25 or 30 miles I 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 a 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. They 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 head. 11 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 them onto the market 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. "Now another thing that I wish to speak of. Parts of this province are under quarantine for disease among stock. Mange is caused by a parasite that foods in thc skin of the animal, causing excessive irritation. The an- if-we are careful to do the work thor- oughly with the lime and sulphur dip we will be able to eradicate mange from Southern Alberta and raise the quarantine. Just as soon as a section is clear of mange, the quarantine will be removed from that section. We-ask your hearty co-operation and support in the work." In answer to a question Mr. Ander- son stated that the method of quar- antine was to serve notice on the owner of mangy cattle that they have to be kept either under fence or kept from being with other cattle out on the open range, and those affected dip- ped. "If allowed to roam the prairie and conie in contact with other cattle then the whole outfit will have to be rounded up and dipped. .If a man breaks quarantine when served with a notice, he will be liable to .a heavy fine. I want none of you to think for a moment that the Department is try- ing to put something onto you that you do not want. This is in the in- terest of the cattle trade, that the country is quarantined. Supposing our mangy cattle should go over to Britain and slip through the rigid inspection at Winnipeg or Montreal. The chances are we would be kept out of allowing our cattle in those markets entirely, the same as u is with the cattle in the Argentine Eepublic. It is a valuable trade and one that is going to grow as the country gets broken up and more far- mers come in, and I feel that the number of cattle sent out from this province will be trebled. They will be better quality, and more money coming into the country. It is' the interests of cattle men that the Gov- ernment is trying to protect in having and enforcing these see that the cattle are kept well and clean.
