The Lethbridge Herald published an extract from the Vancouver Daily Province in "which this was included: "Of course there are people on the ground who grumble and depre- cate the country. Don't yon 1 such barnacles everywhere There i.s a certain class of pioneer settler who does nothing to test the land he has locnled on and sees no future for it. He has lazed away his tinjG un- til surprised by the inrush of serilemcnt disturbing his do-nothing ex- istence. Then he sneers at the enthusiasms of those who see further into possibilities than he can, and growls at the country because if has not developed itself for his benefit. lie has drifted so long, satisfied with meeting the mere necessities of life, that he has got a sort of dry rot. He hasn't recognized the great possibilities of the country, not because these possibilities do not and have not existed, but simply be- cause he has not had eyes to recognize them. This country was the same in the old! days until a new and energetic people wlio saw the vast opportunities, which this coun- try possesses'if they took hold and develop- ed it. Now we see the results they have ob- tained-after only a few years' work. What can be done in this country can he treble as well in the Fort George District- once the people start to develop it.

Mr. J. W. JTeNicol, Secretary of the Lethbridge Board of Trade, is in town for a few -days. Like other Alberta men who have been east recently, he speaks with the utmost enthusiasm of the unprecedently large rush of immigration this season, and of the rapidity with which the range is be- ing trasformed into farm land. Mr. ilcXicol is not a one-crop man, however. "The people of the he said to a Globe reporter, 'are Some day they will come to their senses, and we will see there a variety of products .and of in- dustries. At the present time I am doing all I can to secure the estab- lishment on a firm basis in Lethbridge of woolen manufacturing, especially blnnkeyt weaving. We have the wool on the. spot and the consuming pop- ulation, and I see no reason why the industry should not prove profitable. The ranches are disappearing, but before long our people will turn ag- ain to cattle feeding as a branch of mixed farming. The country is splen didly adapted.for it. The growth of j alfalfa in Southern Alberta is some- thing remarkable. On dry land one can cut from two to three tons in a season, while on irrigated land the yield is from ffvo to six. TTerefofore farmers have been a little afraid of alfalfa, for, as you know, an animal turned into a field of alfalfa or fed on it too freely will kill itself by ov- feeding, just as with grain. Down jin Nebraska and other alfalfa sections it is now being chopped and even ground into cattle food, and proves very valuable as a part ration. There is no limit to the number of cattle I that can be raised in Alberta ag a portion of the output of mixed farming and it is ridiculous to sec farmers and ranchers bringing in canned milk and butter, and even canned vegetables, because of the devotion to the wheat craze.

An Interview at Brantforct. (Brantford Expositor.) Mr. J. W. McXicol, the executive head of the Lethbridge, Alta., Board of Trade, is in the city to-day, and like all Westerners, is" filled with en- thusiasm over the future of. that por- tion of the Dominion. Lethbridge, he declares, to be one of the most prosperous districts in Al- berto. Last year the population of the place jumped "from to 000, and building permits were issued j amounting to one ana a quarter mil- lion: -dollars. This year the latter figures will 'be exceeded, the building permits in May amounting to Mining and agriculture are the chief reliance of the Lethbridge folks. There are five different coal mines adjacent to the city producing the celebrated Gait coal, and giving em- ployment to men. The town is the centre for the fam- ous Alberta red wheat, the average yield ofwhic h is 28 bushels to the acre. Extensive crops of alfalfa nre also grown. A market for this is found in feeding the thousands of horoses which are employed in this and other mining districts, it being considered equal to grain for fodder. In the United States there are mills grinding the alfalfa into feed grain, and it is claimed to be as good for that purpose as linseed. Extensive irrigation is carried on in the district. Small fruits do well, ami there is no better place than Lethbridge for the small fruit farmer, as he has a market right at his door for all he can raise, and is not com- pelled, as British Columbia fruit- growers are, to meet expensive trans- Hiiori tlic profits two or three middlemen. Apples have been experimented with and would do well save for the winds, and the growth of wind breaks for thoir protection will be necessary. As regards the climate, Mr. Mc- Nicol is most enthusiastic. There are, he says, no warm spells such as we are now having in Ontario; the nights are always cool, and in winter the average temperature is only 8 deg. above zero. There is but little sleighing, and sleighs are not com- monly used. In fact, the operation of the chihnook winds is so rapid that even when snow falls It does not stay for any time. As for newspapers, the town has PAINFUL SCENE IN COURTROOM June case of the King vs. Alexander Maseur came to a sensational ending to-day at noon. Judge Perdue, after commenting on the frequency arid ease with which cars are robbed, and the difficulty in convicting the thieves, sentenced the prisoner to three years. Immediately there-were wild screams in court, and the wife'of tut: jjriaGncT tiiBucu Lu Hit; uclioi, ViTiu clung to the judge's robes, while oth- er relatives, male and female, howled and threw fits on the floor. For nearly a quarter of an hour the pain- scene continued and with diffi- culty was suppressed by the sheriffs. TROTTING HORSE SOLD. The two-year-old trotting horse owned formerly by C. W. Yaggy, of Taber, was taken to Warner, M. J Connor, of that place, having bought a half interest in the colt. The colt's name is Sylvester Knapp a full brother of Lady coming from fast parentage on both sides. Lady Knapp sold for and later lowered her mark to against time. Panic, jr., the sire of these colts, has a cup record of at three years of age. Sylvester Knapn will be used for breeding purposes, making the stand at Warner along with Connor's im- ported Percheron, and big-boned Jack. The consideration in the. above tran saction is said to be cash. I LETHBRIDGE BEER A GOOD TONIC Drugs on the market had better oftentimes be left there.
