Last "fall lie collected a load of the best shaped and largest beets ana tnsni 'pitted f-m the. frost dud then, are in perfect condition. The sugar'beet is a .iillwiiiiJ. W1 the lieot itself is transplanted to gel the seed. These samples are tested Individually for, their sugar liroper- I ties, and only those going high it aacuarine are planted for seed. Mr Mflner believes that native seed will produce n larger beet, and sines our beets are naturally very high to the sugar property it is thought that na- tlvo seed will improve the industry. Some experimenting 'was done a few years ago on this line, but it was not followed up. The sugar industry seems to nova taken a new impetus this 5'ear, and things look very favorable. At pre- sent tlie bast seed is shipped from and is sold to the farmer at-1 cents a pound. .From ten to fif- teen pounds Is planted to an acre. If Med can be raised here It will be a saving of thousands of dollars. Betlaw. Alta., April week about end wheat seeding In this district.

Sever Westre started for Norway, his old home, to visit his parents this Bummer. .He left on April 22, and will be gone until August 1. It IB nine years since he left Home, and we feel he will view the scenes of his boyhood days 'with unbounded pleasure. Mr De Grote is putting in eight acres' of his garden.

Mr E A Everitt is putting in the crop of John Johnson's farm. He win Sh it this week-one hundred acres, of wheat. We should think the 'wholesale men if. the larger towns would soon get up an excursion and visit the new towns on our line, and get acquainted with George W. Guthrle, American Am- bassador to Jupah, an soi.n as his heard of tlio condition of tiie Siberia, requested the Japanese Komgii Of- fice to send u warship 10 her aid. lie was informed that the government, httvlnc already learned of the acci- dent, had sent the Kanto Mum from Formosa.

Always the Choicest and Everything on the Market PRICES ROCK BOTTOM John Johnson states that when; he crossed the boundary at Coutts, the custom officers made him nay duty on his young colts, and made him .un- pack every box he had in his two wagon loads of household goods. It delayed him one day at Coutts. Frank Connor is reported on the sick list. Coming at seed time it is a very uu'vvelcome visitation. We hope for his early recovery. C. W. Hastings, who sowed one acre of alfalfa last spring oil non-ir- rigated land, and reported that he had a good stand, was very much afraid it would not amount to much after the winter, but is glad to say every root is alive, and there a big crop. He wishes he had forty Any time in Haj-.'ls all right, to sow 'alfairt.j Twenty dollars will sow fiva acres, and it's 'worth one I thousand'dollars to any farmer. Sum- mer fallow, or last year's potato ground Is all right to it on. It needs a good seed bed. free from weeds. Keep all weeds pulled, the first year. After that it will take care of itself, and Will last nine or .en years. We like the idea .of the farmers' market day being organized in the larger towns, aiid know it will do lots ot good to both the farmers and con- sumers. We believe that later on it will "iave to be held by the smaller places. The movement has come to stay and means a good deal to every- body.

An acre of sugar beets should crop from .10 to 15 tons. The factory agrees to pay per ton delivered to cars at Lclhbridge, Beats do well on cither irrigated or dry .farm, land. In the Raymond j vicinity beets ale generally grown on The ground requires plow- ing to a depth of 8. to 10 Inuiics for beets. Summer-fallowed land is pref- erable. Heels will well follow pota- i toes and other garden truck and it i clean, such'land, need not be plowed. The Idea .'is to secure a fine well-stir- red well-packed sbe'd hcd. The be done in the next iwo: week's or before May 15th. In small tracts seeding by a Junior planter is successful. A regular hect- seedcr tan be had for large tracts. A supply of beet seed is in hand at the .ollices of the liethbridge Board of Trade, and will he supplied to any person who will contract to plant a quarter of an acre or more. Con- tracts for acreage can be made at the -Board of Trade. Twelve pounds jM-r acre is required lor seed. Seed costs 15c. per- poundjnbut. ii desired the cost ot seed will be advanced and deducted from the crop proceeds. .Beets require clean of weeds during ilia growing period. The first operation niter planting is called thinning. This consists in' cutting or pulling the young plants to leave one plant to ten in- ches in the row, to leave the strongest plants. Cultivation follows thinning as I soon as practicable and until the' I beet leaves are too large to permit (further cultivation. Once in ten days ,is about right. When hired help is required the following piece-work scale is follow- ed i ljer acre Thinning S4-60 Hoeing, first time Cultivating; Plowing up heels 1-7" Pulling and topping 6-ol) This arrangement of the Board ot Trade mates it possible for farmers and gardeners in and about the city of Lethbridgo to raise sugar beets with the assurance of a good niai'kct i this fall, and it is the desire of the i committee that residents of the city and district take up enthusiastically with the proposition this season. Anyone having a garden plot of a1 quarter of an acre or more, or any- one who is able, to secure the use oi such vacant property within the city; should be able to engage in growing sugar Any farmer in the lo-1 cslity may also include a levy seres' o! sugar beets in his crop for, this; year! Commissioner Tracy, who re-; sided for several years in -the sugar beet" district in the Slate of Michi-j gan, says that the growing, of sugar beets had become a general fas for the people that country, even to such an extent that school' teachers with thfir pupils would undertake the I of Rpnm sugar hivts for such' purposes as providing a fund with which'to buy n piano for their school I room. Miner's and others having fam- ilies .adequate to follow up the work- would cultivate nn acre or so oi, su- gar beets on land which they owned or the' use of which they could se- cure, and. Ihwrotiy provide a nucleus for home-buying or a savings bank account or the like. Mr. Tracy is under the impression that there arc a large number of people in Leth- bridge and vicinity who would find such .an undertaking this .spring to be highly interesting and pleasurable as well as profitable in the outcome. Those are invited to call at the Board.of Trade offices at once. ;l'icscrve this paper tor reference.
