THE DUKE OF ARGYLE.. W IESTERN CANADA seems to be unfortunate tliis spring through'the Grin Reaper removing from their spheres of earUily activity a number of the men who were Ihe.-pion cert in, moulding and shaping Uic destinies of this great inland empire. One by one Lord, Strath cona, Lord Minto and Sir William Whyle. all in ternational figures whose lives were bound up in the west, were taken, and with the death on Sat- urday of the Duke of Argylc, we lose another though he may not haj-e been so prominenthMSm- the development of the prairies. The Duke of Argyle as the Marquis of Lome (came to Canada in 1878 as re- maining until 1SS3. -During this time he took a great interest in the development of the west as the .building of Canada's first transcontinental railway was a live issue during his regime. He visited the west and named the province of Al- berta, giving the then territory the second name of his wife, the Princess Louise, fourth daughter of Victoria the Good. Ou this occasion he wrote a poem which nbw has a historical "significance. It reads: Alberta. In token of the love which thou hast shown For this wild land of freedom, I have named A province vast, and for its beauty fnmc'd. By thy dear name to, be Alberta shall it be! Her fountahisThrown" From Alps into three oceans, to all men Shall vaufit her loveliness, e'en now; and when Each little hamlet to a city grown, i 'And numberless of blades of prairie grass, Or the thick leaves in distant forest bower, Great peoples hear the Giant Current pass, Slill shall her waters, bringing wealth and power) Speak the loved land of silver JVVorlhy the daughter of our English kings. The scented breath of the plain is hers, The odors sweet of sage and firs: There the coal breaks forth on her rolling sod, And the winters flee at the word ot God. THE RIGHT KIND OF NEWS. THAT part of Southern Alberta centering on Lethbridge will this year raise for shipment to outside markets at least swine. This will be four times as many as were shipped dur- ing the whole of 1911. What better proof that Southern Alberta is tramping right on the heels of prosperity could be found than this statement which is the opinion of an Albertan who is generally credited with be- ing pretty close to the Rutherford of 1he C. P. R. The Board of Trade should keep its eye on'the swine industry. It is .one which is liable to many ups and downs. Price fluctuations happen when least expected and for no apparent reason. It will he well if the board keeps close to the market quotations and when a slump is in sight, endeavor to ward it off by bringing in more competition among the buyers. This will heJp to satisfy the farmers more than any thing else, and will give them a confidence when they go into the swine __business. Market is half the battle. That is where Mie board should concentrate. inovenient fixed for next Friday when Henderson Park will undergo a beautifying process. We hope there will he no doubt about the decision. There is much to do, and if ihe'citizens of Leth- hridgc take the pride in their parks that' they should there will he no doubt about the size of the crowd for Henderson Faik beautifying day. Incidentally the good work should not stop on Friday. It should go on until every lawn and hack yard in the city is as spick and span as hard work can make if. Lethbridge has the reputation of being the cleanest city of the west, but we can This "clean up" campaign has linother gobc feature.. If every rubbislriieap, every breeding place for flies were removed within the next two weeks, Lethbridge would be a "fiyless town" this summer: That would be a reputation" worth hav- ing. It is certainly worth striving' for. Other appropriated the "fiyless town" slo- gan. We can adopt it and make it a reality, Be- cause we have a foundation so much better to work on. The return in better health conditions to say nothing of the comfort it would bring, would repay the trouble a thousand times over. OUK POINT OF VIEW Can you imagine the Moncton, New Brims Times -telling the prairie 'armer should have from the government? Calgary papers think that some of the divines u that cilj should cultivate charity. Well, mixed arming is the latest fad. The M.R.S. wireless message froin the Siberia, vhich carried 800 passengers, was mistaken for he S.O.S., and vessels within ihe radius of the call scurried to her "aid. It was a good joke but he mistake was better made this way than vice Increased production is given by many experts is the great and crying need in Western Canada oday. The greatest stimulus to increased pro- luction is a ready and profitable market. Nearly many hogs were raised in Southern Alberta luring the first three months of this year, as were old for slaughter during the whole of 1913. What the reason? There are many, probably, but lie fact that the United States congress saw fit to emove the duty, had a whole lot to do with it, profitable and quickly available market was pened and the farmers raised- the class of live lock that they could get to that market in the horlest time. In the fact of this phenomenal in- rease, the government might, if they realized the leed of increased production, raze a few more of he barriers without any objection from the agri- ulturist. MCLEAN UP." THE "clean up" campaign all ovei the contin- ent this sprung has been more of an oulstand- ing feature during the past week than it has ever been in any previous year, and it promises to go pierrily on for a couple of weeks more. i It well. It is a good sign, and we hope the people of Lethbridge will join the brigade of those 1 .'who want brighter, cleaner gardens, towns and The metWiaitU of 'Lethbridge will meet io- to decide- whether .they will join in the One of the problems of the farmer, when he decides that he must go into the mixed farming game, is to find the wherewithal to do' so. The banks won't lend to thp. average farmer for such a venture, with the result that he must struggle along for three or four years, starting in a small way, until he is in a position to demand larger credit for his purpose. The decision of the Board of Trade therefore to syndicate the credit of their membership to supply the farmers the credit they need to start right away on a decent scale, is worthy the highest commendation, and means that the Lelhbridge district is going to save two or three years in getting into the stock- raising industry on the right basis. The Board of Trade is starting the greatest factory it could live slock miii. There is little doubt about the market for the produce, and never a doubt at all that it can be operated successfully here. It's along the right ngri- cullural is. (J Business Houses Can Anything That
