Frost is a scarcity in these parts during the critical period of crop and last year whsn some other were ed in a stern with unfavor- able weather conditions the farmers near here were able to gather their grain in excellent The advan- tage of these conditions was appre- ciated tiw wheat was shipped out.

If a man were content to de- vote practically all his energies, as is clone in some instances, to winter wheat, he might do well, but the ele- ment of risk is great, and the farm- er, as a general thing, does not care to lean too far towards the speculative side of grain growing. The methods which have succeeded within the past few years in the case of oats and spring wheat will carry the farmers through-an ordinary sea- son, and it is likely that the produc- tion of winter wheat'will confin- ed to men who are. particularly intimate- with -the conditions which are involved in raising it properly. American Farmers Flocking In. The immigration from the' United States is bound to be a factor of in- creasing importance in connection with the agricultural development ol this region. Settlers are flocking in. and as.rnuny; as one hundred cars o effects have been unloaded at various points near here in one week this spring.

In spite of the violent party strife which has been sioned by the President's methods the feeling among the prominent Re- publicans here is that it is essential that the party :shall win victory in November. Some of the men who are among Mr. Roosevelt's most pro- nounced critics would have the President in the White House for another four years than see Bryan or even Gray or Johnson there. 1 If BO, our Royal Patent Flour Will interest yon Royal Patent Pastry Flour It will save you 25 per cent in lard bills, The flour is cheaper than ordinary hard wheat floor.

LETHWUDGE IS ENTHUSIASTIC Crop Conditions Excellent in whole District filled. It is not to be supposed that this is the whole extent of the ram- fall, or that the climate is particular ly, dry. The total precipitation here in 1007 15.50 inches, of which 12.82 fell in the six mouths from Ap ril to September, inclusive. The av- erage for the six years ending with 1907 was 17.65 inches, a good show- ing in comparison with the other dis tricts of thu west. Peculiar charac- teristics of the soil make the- grain- grower contented with weather con- in Dakota and Minnesota, reaching Lethbridge by way of the main line and Crow's Nest branches of the Ca- nadian Pacific Railway. This has been one of the most active immigra- tion seasons in the history of the district, and the newcomers are spreading to all parts. Most of them go cm the land at-once, but the effect of .their settlement is shown in the rapid growth of several towns and villages south.of this city. Com- munities which consisted of a few shacks a couple of years ago are TABERTAII Taber, May complaints have been made of valuable dogs be- ing destroyed or shot. A large black Newfoundland was found dead this afternoon opposite W. W. Douglas' stores on road, by what means it was killed it is not yet ascertained but J. Eastman, the town constable, is looking the matter up when he hopes to detect the guilty parties and them to justice. At the police court this evening on. Mosel was charged by J. Ben- nett with having on Thursday last shot his dog, which was a valuable one. Tha'cast was-adjourned to Monday next at 2 o'clock, for the production of a-Ywitness., who-it is stated ac- tually-, saw-.the accused aim from his shoulder and fire a I the dog.

The Lethbridge district resembles many communities in that its capabilities in the way of grain-rais- ing were not recognized until a few years ago. The development since has been rapid and continuous, and this is now looked upon as one of the leading agricultural sections of thft province. Kanching is still an im- now pretentious villages, bustling with activity, and full of for e years that are to come. The ttlcrs' movement is likely to con- nue for some time yet this- year, nd by next fall thousands of new anadiaus will have found comfort- ble homes in the fertile domains o( outhern Alberta, all of which means much to Lethbridge.
