It will provide liomes for nearly famines, if each family occupies one duarter section. At the time none o.e this land is on the market, The leason is that there is no irrigation system there. But this will be remedied dur- ing the next two years, arid Mr Caz- ier will be responsible for the great- er part ot the work. year he began work on the immense reservoir In Chin eighteen miles caul of the city and three miles south of the town of ,Chin. This reservoir, which will collect and hoKl all 'ho water from' the irrigation sys- lem now in use throughout Southern Alberta, will form the liead vater of the irrigation system which is, to sup- ply-water to tile acies of the block now held by the C._ P. R. The Chin Reservoir The reservoir will be completed this summer. In one-half of the work is already completed, and the big dam at lower end of the coulee, which Is feet in height, Is in place to form the head gate of the system. Immediately the reservoir is complet- ed, it Is the Intention of the company to award the contract for digging of all the main canals and laterals to irrigat" the whole block, which will then be placed on the market' What this will mean to Southern Al- berta may be seen froni the fact that, since the irrigation system east to Chin has been completed, land lias in- creased m value from eight or ten dollars, until now it is nearly all held at between J75 ami ?TOO per acre, and is considered'a good investment even at that figure. But this Is Jiot nil tfcs -oik to Ls undertaken by, the company this yean Tho canal system north of Coaldale is to be extended, and a Contract will be awarded within a short time .for the moving of several million earth in the construction of canal ex- tensions in-the country north of'the Crow's Nest line, thus bringing sev- eral thousand acTes of land under wa- ter rights, and thus -adding'-many dol- lars per acre to the value. Altogether the plans of th-a com- pany in Souheru Alberta win mean the outlay of many thousand dollars; and the ultimate addition of millions o'f dollars to the value of tho Lethbridge district as an agricultural community; Magratli district Fanners Work jug on big1 ScaJe 'Vocalist Magrath. May. opera- tions are progressing very favorably in the "'district, and an im- mense acreage has already been'sowu j to spring wheat. Reports from the country are most gratifying, and with- in a -week by far the major portion of the .crop will be hi. lu conversation with G. W. Hcatiiershaw, yesterday, that gentleman said: "We finished seeding our wheat today. In all, we have about eleven hundred acres in, and expect to seed "five hundred acres of oats and the same of flax just as soon as possible. Conditions were never better for a good crop. The soil is in "splendid'shape for working, and the'seed will sprout just as soon as It is placed ground." 'Most of the other wheat barons of this section of the country tell the same story: Jenson Brothers have a j Dig Rang or man uiiu ltMuib Taki on their land, and, co-ild handle a large number moretif they were avail- able. There is a good demand for la- bor, several of the farmers reporting a scarcity. From Spring Coulee comes the opti- mistic information .that the farmers are the prospect? for a -f The fall wheat JS and the spring' wheat is nearly" all in the ground. The fall wheat in Afagrath is also In fine shape, and is showing up well. Thp trees are coming out in leaf, many of the gardens are up, and the, next ten days will see this town con- verted into a garaeu city, indeed. is a regrettable state of af- fairs existing in this town m legard to the coal situation. .It seems, next tD impossible to get a car of Lethbridge coal for love or money. While the local mines are working and.selling a considerable amount of coal, there is still a good demand for the Loth- bridge product. Mr Pinlayson, a lo- cal coal dealer, asserts that he hasn't car of Gall coal two weaks, and that all his effoitfa to get coal from Lethbridge are unavailing. This .is certainly not as it should ber und it is to be hoped it will soon be righted. A. .1.'Mercer, it .was reported in a former issue, hud been retained in the post office, -but this is evidently not the case. Mr. Mercer desires it'dis- tinctly understood that in no way connected with the office when ibis statement' was made. :He -did, however, remain to assist Mr. Ras- mn-3sen in becoming familiar with the accounts. Mr. Mercer has since been appointed weed inspector by the pro- vincial government, his district com- prising, the section of country be- tween Raley and the Pot Hole. He says a vigorous campaign will be wag ed by the Department of Agriculture this year, with a vtew to ridding the country pesi. While the De- partment is not -desirous, of making trcublo for any ;one, the regulations will have to be enforced, and the land Us the weeds are fast spread- ing over the province.
