SQUAW DROVE OVER SIXTY MILES WITH DEAD HUSBAND IN RIG Macleod, June sn-The stoicism of the Indian is proverbial. Here is a remarkable local instance. !

I IntereBts Coincide ! Farm Products Llmlte*] was organ-! Ized last year by a nurnhnr of farmers j resident in the Lethbrifii;e and Coal-; dale districts. It is capitalized at '?100.000. Its m?mberHhlp has ateadily increased, and there l� today number. I ed among Its stockholders many of I the most Influential and succeesful i farmers hereabouts, thft mont of whom I are engaged in mixed farming. It has been very succesaful, and has during last fall and the winter handled and sold large Quantities of hay. grain and vegetables, supplying markets for a long distance, and biinglng to the producers a far better price than they would ordinarily have obtained through trading �with middlemen and wholesalers. The bu8ini?as established has beon recognized a.s one of Import to Lethbridge, and the requirements of the coming stason bade fair to necessitate an increaso of working capital in order to construct storage sheds and improved handling facilities. Instead of two ooncerns in the field handling the samt products, and the stockholders of nnp being also interested in the otli'.'j- to a considerable extent, the amalgamation permits of this continuance of the business along those broad lines, and pro-I rides the means for increased stor-! age. I The stock of the company is dlvid-! eQ into shares of $10 each and is sold only in blocks of ti^e shares, and the aim Is to k-eep the larijest proportion of the stock among (ht farmers and producers of Southern Alberta and in gPWU. lots, in order io carry out the co-operative idea. Cold Storage  � The plans and formal application for a Dominion government subsidy for cold storage were forwarded to Ottawa yesterday afternoon, and steps were taken to obtain apur tracks to the proposed site, and to arrange with the Canadian Pacific Railway company for rate.= on live stock, refrigerator car serviii^ etc. Stock Yards The cold storage plans call for a building costing $48,000, to contain el�ven large- cold storage rooms for the han'dling of all classes of products, from fruit, eggs, butter, cream etc., to dressed meats, provisions, lard and everytiiing perishable. One entlrie floor of upwards of 5B00 square f�et floor space will be devoted to the Bubllc storage of automobiles, carriages, household goods, etc. The basement is to be devoted to the manufacture of liyglenlc ice, a plant being Installed sufficient to produce an average of .30 tons of Ice dally the year round. Trackage facilities are arranged for right to the very doors of the building, and a refrigerator car service will be instituted dally between Lethbridge and the Crow's Nest Pass and other places for the speedy handling of perishable products and the supplying of the trade with butter, eggs, dressed meats, fruits, vegetables, etc., at wholesale, the jobbers and wholesalers being Invited to pool in this business. ' The plans for a live stock yards and central market are on as large a scale, and some of the properties retiulred have been arranged for and plans are being prepared tor submission to the city authoritiEB In order to assure approval, as there will be requirements bearing on health regulations, sanitation, water and se'wer service to be considered, all of which'have been arranged for subject to approval. In addition to these features there will be a large building erected at a suitable location on the C. P. R. tracks, very convenient of access, which will be utilized as a hay exchange, and a portion of It devoted to storage of potatoes and such other vegetables as it Is advisable to handle ac certain seasons in large quantities, thus facilitating their shipment. The market will handle all sorts of produce, and all kinds of live stock raised on the ml.ved farms of Southern Alberta, and the aim will he to get the highest price obtainable for the farmer, through being In dally telegraphic communication with the larg. er markets of Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Toronto and being in position to make immediate shipment in quantity. This, In the live stock end of It alone, means a great deal to the farmer, and It furthermore meana that the small farmer with his few head of cattle, sheep or hogs will be enabled to get the beneflt of carload prices through the opportunity of ^gsemhHng small Jots at th� stock yards until stich time as carload lots can be advantageously shipped. There will be, it is expected, a very considerable profit from the manftfaoture of Ice and other byproducts, for there will be many bl-products with the establishment of an abattoir, and these profits will go back to those farmers who as stockholders in this co-operatlve concern have undertaken to estftbliaJi a, market for all.

P. R. (Continued Irom Iront page). Cars were not demolished it was a comparatively easy matter to get out the injured and they were immediately rushed in motor cars to the city hospitals. C. P. K. Acted. Promptly The C.P.R^ officials despatched medical men and others to the scene of the accident as soor. as possible and did nobly in caring for the injured. Passengers who were able to continue their journey were taken west tonight in a special by way of Kemptville. Wrecking crews from Ottawa and Smith's Falls were promptly on hand and it is said that the track will be clear for traffic early tomorrow morning. The train for Toronto was also ^ent around by way oi Kemptville. There was remarkably little panic among the passengers. The Russians took things stolidly, while the British immigrants showed their breed by those who escaped or who are only slightly injured helping the less fortunate to extricate themselves. Those who were injured bore up most pluckily after the first alarming cries, and their grit was commented upon by physicians and others. There were many pathetic scenes as women and children going to join their husbands and fathers, or whole families going to the west were removed, injured. Some members of families were killed, while others who wero injured were hurried to the hospitals so quickly that their relatives did not know where they had gone. Most of the deaths were caused by the people being hurle4 through a window into the river. One woman and a boy, who were apparently leaning out of the window,, were caught imderncath and their bodies w^ere the last to be recovered. Chief Engineer Mountain, Inspector Lalonde and Chief Operating Ollicer A. J. Nixon, of the Railway Commission, went out to the scene of the accident shortly after it occurred^ They made a sketch of the layout, and a superficial inquiry, but will defer for a day or so ^a more thorough investigation. One of the flffiCi.'als said that owing to the con- dition of the track the real cause could not be readily established, but he inclined to the view that the rail had "kinked" from the action of the sun and after standing the pressure of the locomotive and forward cars, became diisplaced, causing the other cars to be thrown off. U. S, GETS ARGENTINE BEEF New York, June 24.-A consignment of 100 quarters of Argentine beef, the first ever imported to this country, was placed on the New York and Brooklyn markets today. The shipment was made by London speculators, who want to try the experiment of placing beef which has crossed the ocean to England, and re-crossed it to New York, in competition with American grown beef that has only made the journey here from the West by rail. The Argentine beef was sold at 12 cents a pound, as against cents a pound for American beef. ? : ? � ? : � ? ?
