The prices of n decade ago were due lo costly experiments, ex elusive patents, and limited protiuc tion. Theso conditions would pass away. One maker said he would a car so who could not afford to keep a horse and buagy would drive it. This promise hasj been literally fulfilled. In tho United States alone there are todaj automobiles in use, compnret in 1905. and in 1890 The automobile rides on the crest ql popularity. And born of.this popularity comes a problem, foreseen only by the more astute. A gun without powder and a loconiottve without coal are of exactly the same service aa an automobilfe without gasoline.. Enormous efforts have been made by the oil Industry to keep pace with the demand. The pro duction gasoline in the Tlmtet States has been increased 000 barrels In 1S99 to bar re's'Ih 1S15, on cf 512 per cent. But In the same period the auto mobiles in use increased not. to speak oC motor, boats motor trucks, farm gasoline engines, motorcycles arid aeroplanes. The situation faced IB an unusual one. When a shortage occurs in wheat', or cotton, or beef, or manufac- tured products, the rising price in- duces a'greater production, and the balance is, at least In some degree restored. But gasoline is a natural product, which, when consumed, can- restored. .There is just so much gasoline in the .bowels of the earth; when it has beeu pumped.out, there will be no. more gasoline. And already the day of exhaustion seems near" at hand. Secretary of the In- terior Lane, of the United States, finds that "some oil fields are already 93 per and many of the big- gest fields (ire over fifty per cent, ex- fiausted.

Already oil with a rery content has been tapped In Southern Alberta, and it is Impos- sible to say what the future may brinf forth in oil development ia the pro- vince. Enormous quantities of wet gas (natural gas saturated with gasoline) are blowing Into the atmosphere. By distillation this garolioe can bo saved, and gome success has already attend? ed efforts in that direction. Then there is the possibility ot a substitute liquid to take the place of gasoline. Science is looking toward alcoh'ol, "Which can be produced -from many vegetable matters, and with great success from potatoes. Accord- tag to government returns Alberta grows more potatoes to the acre than any state iu the United States, and theso potatoes are grown 'on cheap land compared witb. land valued at one hundred dollars an acre and more. Af ter potatoes have been used in the manufacture of alcohol, the by-product makes ah excellent food for stock. If the imagination could grasp the un- occupied millions of Alberta's rich acres producing potatoes for the man- ufacture of alcohol, with the by-pro duct being converted into-beef, both fro 'gasoline-and meat problems of civilization would be on a fair way to solution.
