Not only is this a awing of;tlme: there is also an eoon-oihyreKe'cted by/the shorter hauling ictfarg-esitb.'a'cpmmon point. .'JProbably; apm^ over cautious nerson may remarfc :"'5hls is all very well, jb'ui:-what' alJoutithei. possibility of over-."stiioking' the" In reply to tth5s;'c"ql9s'tatl6tic41:figures have.been Ijcmotedjibyi-ui^pr^udlced governmental employees that during the pettod that Alberta increased her population S43 per cent.; Saskatchewan, voVet 400 per cent.; British-Columbia'l�i��reaS8d hers only 150 per cent., and is even now consuming 60 per cent.; of her own products. Large Importations are constantly oomingin frotn the Vn-ited States, and when it Is noted that despite a longer haul, With inorpased traivK>ortatl0D expenses, tariff chairg-es, a rigid governmental insppotton, that fruit can be grown on land in the Republic to the south that commands prices that are five and six times per acre the prices that obtain in Creston, is it not an easy m�tt�f to reaoh a conclusion that Creston'offers exceptional advantages fo the prospective fruit farmers? Irrigation is not necessary, as the average, annual precipitation is 29 inchesK This has a twofold advantage-firstly, better and more lasting fruit obtained; secondly, "the meat" of the entomologist, but the "poison" of the horticulturist is an appreciably lesser quantity where Jupiter Pluvius supplies moisture direct, instead of it being furnished through the medium of an irrigating ditch. Again, our sceptical friend may observe, "Oh, yes. but a man must have considerable capital to wait until he gets real, svibstantial- returns from apples." Quite correct, if he did; but he doesn't. Here are some of the means he has of ma'king money while the orchard is in process of development: He raises raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, gooseberries, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, beets, chickens, turkeys, etc., in fact, he can successfully grow practically everything found in the temperate and some ot the products of the semi-tropical zone. As an illustration of what has vbeen accomplished in the apple department, these figures tell a story. In 19t0 the value was foOOO against $55,000 in 1912, in the early part of November of which year the last carload was 'shipped out. In addition to apples, there are cherries, plums, pears, quinces, grapes, melons, not to mention pumpkins that bump down the scale at over 100 pounds, or eveti one cwt. To sum up the entire situation in ordlDEiry, commonplace language we will enumerate the advanftiges" of I Creston: Climate-'liJeal; soil;- prodi-|;gal in its fertility:'.market far fn excess of supply; aobki advantages, 3 schools and a high scliool: fraternal societies; 4 religious denominations are represented; local telephone service. Sportsmen can riot in ^he'pleasures incident to the chase and capture of fUT, ffn and feathers; summer frosts an unknown .quantity. ' : Water for drinking purposes is of quality that can be justly fclaimed nectar fit for the gods, while those "v/ho desire to indulge in aquatic pastimes may swim in or row upon the numerous lalie abounding within the radius of ten miles. Many people have become disgusted when between the- stateriients made in the real estate literature'and the facts that the only fruit is Dead Sea fruit, still if these disappointed ones will carefully examine all the statements given and compare tliem with the actual facts of Creston thei) will learn that, instead of exaggerating, half the truth has riot been told. These may on first glance appear ambiguous, it is not so intended nor should it b^ so accepted, because if the returns that have been obtained were to be stated in print without any other corroboration, - there are many who would regard the writer as an executive of fleer ' of the Ananias Club.

Edmonton, March' 10.-Edmonton" Council of Women,, headed by Mrs. R., W. Cautley, and it8'Pu)jllc health committee of which Mrs. Bryce J.
