Stirling, r�tJWft,,nwV,�w� .'....,' _^firtEAT FALLS AID TO THOROUGHBRED STALLIONS A. E. Fawns Agent ^or Deering Harvester Machinery Emerson Plows Tudhope Buggies Sawyer & Massey Engines & Separators Hossier Press Drills Stirling, Alta. The policy initiated in 1911 by the Department of Agriculture with reference to the granting of aid, under certain conditions, to the owners of thoroughbred stallions; is generally meeting with approval and is accomplishing in part at least the objects sought when the policy was undertaken. Amongst other things, owing to the rigid conditions Imposed, it Is encouraging those maintaining really high class horses,, and is serving to organize the system of breeding followed In the difffferent communities where thoroughbred stallions are located. The stimulus given, in tills manner, to the use of thoroughbred blood will, it is believed, lead to an improvement in the light horse stock of the country. Thoroughbred stallions, it really good individuals, may be expected to exert such an influence, in the development of Canadian horses for saddle and harness use, as is greatly needed and greatly to be desired. The premium placed upon quality, soundness and prepotency through rewards awarded by the department is serving to check the use of unsuitable sires and is tending to conserve a type of thoroughbred, the utility of which is beyond question. While, as perhaps should be stated, it Is not the intention of the department to encourage, the breeding of thoroughbred'horses or to develop a type, in light horses approximating closely to that of- the thoroughbred, there is no question but that a strong infusion of thoroughbred blood in the light legged mares of the country will be of estimable value in improving the quality of the-stock goi from them by stallions of 'the various light harness breede. Believing himself to be justified therefore, in further prosecuting the policy begun last year, the Hon. Martin Burrell,'.'Minister'of Agriculture, has authorized, thie continuance of the grant, to be available for all thoroughbred ; stallions, standing for public ser-vliie during the soison of 1912, which comply with' the/conditions imposed by the department. The 'conditions under which assistance will be given are as follows: � (1) All horsesaccount of which iid is given by "the department must be registered in the thoroughbred stud book of the Canadian National Live Stock records. (2) Horses go-'"ar>proved shall be duly and properly'adveitised to stand for service of mares, under the ordinary and genera! conditions usual in the districts in which they are to be kept, at an -annual service fee (except in the case of thoroughbred mares) of not more than $10 to insure, such service fee to. become due and payable only when mares prove to be in foal. Any person, firm or corporation owning or controlling any thoroughbred stallion' in regard1 to which all the conditions above set forth shall have been 'duly and properly fulfilled, j shall, on production of . satisfactory1 evidence thereof and of the fact that a reasonable number of mares, other than thoroughbred mares, have been -served during the season, be entitled to receive at the close of each season the sum of $250 from the funds of the live stock branch. If, in the event of a horse dying or becoming incapacitated for service during the season, an approved substitute is immediately placed. in the same district, the minister may, after due consideration .of the circumstances, authorize the payment of the subsidy above mentioned. The necessary forms furnished oh application to the Veterinary Director General and Live Stock Commissioner, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.- NO SHORTAGE OF SUPPLIES MASINASIN Masinasin, May 9.-Seeding is just about all done, and in every direction one can see the breaking plow gome., Ifweget a crop this year there will be but few settlers but who will have a carload of wheat to sell, and a' good many two or three-some good object-for a railroad to be coming, through this part of the country.
