Carlylc, livestock commissioner, of Alberta, who spoke at tbj; board of trade luncheon on Thursday. He went thoroughly into the livestock outlook and conditions in the province and dwelt somewhat on the conditions in the southern portions of the province. He traced tho fall of tho livestock Industry through the past few years and told how the increasing price of Brain had its effect. >It reduced tile dairy herds and the holdings of the cattle materially. One result is that Alberta today is not shipping out t, Kood brand of beef cattle.- Alberta breeders are not 'finishing their cattle and these animals have had to be rin- ished in the corn belt of the United States. Now there Is a danger of los ing this market and it can only be held by the producing of a higher grade of beef. "It we are going to compete we must produce a bettor article. If we are going to get a living off our [arms we must produce better things than have in the said the speak- Beef and Irrigation Speaking about the situation in the United States Air. Carlyle said: hava got to put our cattle in better shape. It seems to me in this district you are going iato irrigation there are some lines farmers of this district ought to follow. Irrigation districts are well fitted for the raising of fodder with which to feed stock." Continuing he explained that Al- perta is far away from the and therefore the freight rates are heavy. Alberta must ship produce out In more condenseJ form, said tiie speaker. Tho large number of cattle in the foothills, he said, offer tho farmers of the irrigation belts splendid opportun- ities for investing profitably. They could purchase cattle in the fall and with the fodder raised' through the summer finish these cattle off and ship them out in tho spring. "The future of tho sheep industry Is In the small flocks owned by many said Mr. Carlyle. After announcing that he will speak Thursday night in Coaldale on the silo question, he said every farmer in southern Alberta should have a silo. He told of silo twenty-three feet high and twelve feet in diameter which was filled with sunflowers grown on two acres. LKTHUniDGK, ALBlilTrA. DO KEMLMBER?

Gibbons, at present chief clerk of the customs office in Loihurldgc. lias been appointed acting Collector of Customs and -Excise, to take effect on April I. Word to this oftci-t was received'by II. who has acting Collector of Customs here some time and also by C. T.

Legg will leave Lethbridge 6n Saturday for Calgary. as a result of the division of the canteen funds overseas. Announce- ment to this effect received bv I Secretary Tnrcottc of the branch nf the CJAV.V.A. this morning. The communication contained con- siderable detail com-ernins tlm divi- sion oS this fund and said it would be a IOIIK limn before the canteen fundsHvere all finished. 'Each Cana- dian soldier will rntelvo one and three-sixteenth shares, each Austral- ian pet oim anil six-sixteenths, and Moli New Zealand solilier will get the same. Kach British soldier will set one share. Those who believe in astrologi- cal influences will be interested in the findings of the" Mayor for the month of April. According to his Worship, April on the whole will be a peaceful month, in that in it livers are only two days. April .2nd and Kith, when Mars will be sn.uare to the moon and when people will be irritable, quarrel- some, destructive, ready to fly at each other, unreasonable, and un- manageable. The good days arc five in number, April 5, 2S and 29, when the people.will have a desire to do something of a con- structive nature and will meet with success in such efforts. Be- lievers in astrology should note these lucky days should they de- sire to undertake any enterprise. 'SHU INEFFECTIVE 'F! Yeggmen arc evidently at work in the city, as the safe in Coultry's old meat market at Staffordville, now taken over by Mr. Lingard, was blown up last Might. Fortun- ately for the proprietor of the safe, it was empty at the time, and the thieves had their labor in vain. Chief Gillespie ''.as warned all merchants and business men to take everything out of their safes at night and to leave them open with a note attached for tho yegg- men, should they arrive there, "Don't waste your val- uable time." By these means they will save their safes from being' destroyed from the efforts of the yeggman to get at their contents. The robbers left behind them at the St.-iffordville store two power- ful crowbars, which they no doubt purloined from No. 3 mine or from the C. P. R. These wire evi dently used in an attempt to pry open the safe, and failing which, an explosive was used to blow it open. Remains of Late Wm.
