The -sunny side, of the fence looks good to .them, and they are _wise enough to their own. interests "ib see which-side the sun ..shines-.-on.- The Lethbridge Herald' Special Publicity hum-ber arrived on. Mon- day and-'is. a credit to Southern Al- berta. This issue is made irp of six- ty-four -pages, in eight con. sisting of of the various towns and districts; It is well print- ed .and nicely' illustrated with cuts. The portion of the paper is written by D..--H. Star Wholesale Liquor Merchant PkneSd DEALING IN SCRIP Liberal Regulations Governing Grants Afford a Great Opportunity. South African veterans' scrip has become of considerable commercial in- terest during the past two months, so much so in i'act that from the price of to which' was asked six months ago, the value has advanced to 5650 to within the last cou- ple oi weeJis and cases have been, re- ported where prices as. high as have been ,oHered. The demand is very active, not only from a specula- tive, but from an. investment -stand- point. The question has been asked where does the value of this scrip lie? The answer is the possess ion. of a piece of this scrip it is pos- sible for a man with but very little capital to secure absolute title to a full section, of government land. .For instance, n man buys a piece of scrip for He chooses the district aoid selects the hall section ol govern- ment land which .he wishes to enter on, and liles according to regulations Then, he may homestead a quarter sec- tion adjoining, or near at hand, and if he is wjLthin the prescribed area, he may also pre-empt another quarter section, or a full section in all. To obtain title ajl that is necessary is to perform the requ'red homestead duties the duties on the scrip beinp identical with those on the homestead. .The cost of the pre-emption will be i but the payments on this are so dis- tributed that they would be scarcely felt. Title to this quarter section is secured when the homestead duties have been completed and payments may be spread over a period of six years. In other words for a cash, ouv: lay of less than for the land, a title may be secured to a full sec- tion, worth on a most reasonable es- timate an acre or at the end of three years. Of. course, to se- cure title, residence on. the land is es- sential, but if the homesteader is will- ing- to work, it 'is a simple matter to put sufficient land ureter crop to leave a neat balance hvtija bank ji.i'.ter pay- ing.' j'or all necessary ijuildinjjs, ;stock and implements.

Thompson, of Boston Trail, script, Write of Alberta Politics and Weather. 1'Jdmoritun, Alta., March is Accessary in'justice to Alberta's cli- mate, that this communication should .begin by specifying recent weather since both preceding letters from Ed- monton described the pleasures and merits of a cold snap. That snap terminated on Feb. 16th. Since then the- whole province has been quite warm. Every day has been bright and thawing. 'Every night cool and crisp, the temperature little below frost point at any time and frequent-___________ ly above it. Plowing began at Clares- Pine Syrup lor weak lungs. holm, about 200 miles south of here' or near Calgary, last week. So the local paper reports. Probably a Chinook of considerable duration had thawed the soil there. Here it- is still frozen hard. Edmonton, side- walks, mostly granolithic, were clear- etl of snow by the sun two days ago. The streets are so bare of the article that- many wheeled vehicles have come out. In the country where I drove far last Saturday, the trails were black prairie soil in the well trodden middle, though snow still lay on the sides. Many fields were almost bare.
