THE LiGTHBRIDGE DAILY HE RAID Page 5 OLO OF M TREiiOOS MAGRATH V Magraiii.Marcli; It.-That lite on the homestead is.;iot all monotony is apparent from, the details of a story related yesterdky:, by Mr. H. A. ^^agg. homesteader on the ,leas8j in which IvB claims, to. .hav� distinctly seen a mountatri lion, or sojiie other wild auinial-at-the window of his house" wWle-lie vras. reading one evening recently. Mr. StBRg-is ^Iroroitglrly. convinced that it was no delusion, and, being a si well-eduDirted and-inteUi'.E;ent man, his statements must -be credited. He told ilhb Herald that-the evening was progressing towards .midnight, and he ^vas reWIng the Conquest of Mexico, ^vhen aiHlrtenly. he was aroused'by a Rcratching- �ad p�^wing in tlie window. Lfooliiug 1^ frraccB ol its visit. The next motninp; an investigation proved the truth of the visit of some strange animal, for in the snow and on tdie window were unmis-.'talcable signs of its presence. The length- of - the- a.iimal, was about sjix or seven feat, this being tlie distance from the olaw marlcs on the window Ejnd those pn the ground. The tracks of the boast could be easily followed across the snOw and covered prairie. Tlie opinion of the homesteaders is tliapt the animal was a. mountain lion, probably journeying from the Sweet Grass Hills to the Rocky Mountains. Mr. Stagg declares it resembled an animal of that nature, an4 it is not unreasonable to suppose that the disappearance of hogs, caives,and sheep, reported this winter froni various (Juarters of the south: country is due to the presence of these wild � and mysterious prowlers of the plains. Prominent farmers interviewed on the machinery legislation now before the provincial house, say that it is the finest and most comuKndahle bill of the session. They laugh at th2 threat of the big Implement companies pulling out\of Alberta.' One farmer oven stated that it would he a blessing to the farmer it they did "pull stakes", and taVe with ttftm their slick-tongued agents and collectors. "They allege the implement corporations.haye-.brought more debt and worry on the farmers the west than any other people or cause simple because of tlie easiness of making the purchase.^ This is an allurement, and the farmer soon finds himself hara.ssed and hounded by collectors,^ and threatened by lawyers, as though he wasn't honest and honorable.' Tiiese arc the viewa of almost everyone spoken to on the subject, aud they assert that if the farmers have to pay cash for what they: buy.
