With these direction posts, and with the guide books which are now issued for the province i: will be possible to follow the road from Crow's Nest to Medicine Ha: with the least degree of trouble. The Highway To the Coast. An oft-shoot o: this trans-continenta! route runs north from Macleod through Calgary and on to Edmonton, and the dream "of the capital autoists is of the time when an auto road will be constructed through the mountains to the west and thence on to Vancouver and Victoria. In a recent pamphlet issued by the Island Automobile association of Vic-toria.'lti.C., the following is said about the route from Macleod west to the coast: From .Macleod to the Pacific coast there is not yet a route available entirely within Canadian territory, there being three "missing links.'' The best available route passes through East Kootenay District of British Columbia, thence into Idaho and through Washington, to Seattle, and from there, by steamer-ferry, eighty miles, to Victoria.  The whole of this route is easily negotiated by any present-day auto. The best time of the year for the trip | is- from the middle of June to middle; of October. The tour can usually be; made equally well up to the middle i of November; afte:r that snowfall on j the high levels" is apt to block sections of the route for the winter, though frequently this does not occur till late in December. The following is the mileage from Crow's Nest (British-Columbia-Alberta boundary) to Victoria, divided into convenient day's trips. This can be Taried to suit the individual motorist, as there is a splendid supply of hotels ! and garages along the route, and j many more possible stopping-places than indicated on the map. Crow's Nest to Cran.brook. .107 miles. Cranbrook to Sandpoint... .119 miles. Sandpoint to Spokane..... SO miles. Spokane to Quincy........159 miles. Quincy to Ellensburg...... 57 miles. Ellensburg to Seattle......120 miles. Seattle to Victoria tferry) SO miles, i . t 722 miles, i In passing to or from the united J States or Canada the motorist must I report to the customs officials. These officials will be found to be most courteous and obliging, and there is a total absence of "red tape" or delay in . passing to or from either country. One.thing the tourist must remember is that the rules of the road in British Columbia are exactly the opposite to what they are in the Prairie Provinces. THE HIGHWAY IN ALBERTA. Last fall, in preparation for the posting of the road between Walsh, on the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary and Crow's Nest on the Alberta-B.C. boundary, V. E. Green, now president of the Lethbridge Automobile club drove the whole distance making a very careful log of the road which appears below. He states that the road is a very fine foundation of the permanent road he hopes to see some time in the future. At the time he made the- trip it was in excellent condition. In fact motorists from California .who made the trip from California to Alberta last summer stated that the Alberta roads were just as 'good then as any in the sunny state,) and 'much easier on tires. Of' course I the dirt roads in Alberta can never j compare with the CaHfornia roads ex-' cept when they are perfectly dry, but I on the whole the motorist has little to | complain about up this way. The fol- j lowing is the log mentioned above: "Ked-Route" Transcontinental High-' way, Saskatchewan to British C61um-! bia, computed by V. E. Green, Leth bridge, Alberta.

R. there have been 7S0 Delco farm lighting plants installed in the past i IS months since the selling organiza-; tion undertook its campaign to intro-j duce electric light in. the farm homes I of Southern Alberta. Of these 1S7 ! have been sold tinder the campaign of ! Robert Mellis, the local dealer, and j new plants are going in almost every I day. In the United States and Canada more than 50.000 of these piants have been installed since they were put on the market. As an example of the efficiency of the plant it is stated that the hotel at Warner uses one of them, carrying 77 lights. It does all the washing and pumps the water for the hotel, and the cost is only 83 cents a day. With many new farm homes being built this year Mr. Mellis looks for a large sale.
