ACTIVITIES OF BOARD OF TRADE IN LETHBRIDGE An Institution Which Has Kept Alive a Hearty Co-operation Between City and Country With Mutual Benefit A great deal of suc- cessful development as the big centre of a wealthy agricultural district can bo traced to the splendid co-oper- ation which has always existed, par- ticularly within the past year or two. between the city population and the farming community. A full realizat- ion of the essentials of such co-oper- ation has come to the people of Loth- bridge and ns a consequence the city has earned for itself the name of the city that helps the farmers. Much of the development of this j spirit is due to the activities of the j livt board of trade under the able i prssidenof of Us G. R. Marnoch. a man who is thoroughly I imbued with the absolute inter-depen- dence oi town and country, and 1ms worked untiringly for the furth- erance of that co-operation which has meant so much for Lethbridge and in- 'cidentaliy for the farmers of vhe district. .Many things of mutual benefit for the city and country which have been procured during the past year or two can be traced to tho efforts of the board of trade. The success of the live stock guarantors plan which is described in another column of this 1 supplement, is really responsible for an amendment to tho Canadian Bank- ing Act which has just been passed by Pftrlhuueut and which permits banks to loan money on live stock security. How much this will mean to the farmer in thn way of a start in mixed fanning can be quite readily seen. Not only is there that feature of; the proposition, but the amendment to the act and the benefits resulting therefrom may lead eventually to an entire change in tho system of farm credits which will enable ihe farmer to do all his business on n cash basis. The board of trade 1ms worked one aim in view, to better not only the condition of tho city and its business men, but aleo the fanners of the suifounding country. 01 any. farmers nro active members of Uie board and in this way the board keeps In touch with their needs, and they keep in touch with the view- point of the business men. The United Farmers. In connection with this work may be mentioned the United Farmers of Alberta, an organization of farmore which exists for the protection of the farmers' interests and which has come to be a great power ia the pro- vince. Lethbridge is particularly in- terested In this organization through the fact that its vice-president S. S. Dunham, Is also an active farmer and professional man of Lethbridge dis- trict and an active worker in the board oC trade, lu this way, the inter- relations between the city and the farming community are strengthened.

Plan of the Leihbridge Live Stock Guarantors CONTINUED FROM PAGE THREE OP SUPPLEMENT. crease, and the collateral promissory notes bearing interest at eight per cent, for periods up to two years, are given by the farmer to the Guaran- tors; and these are endorsed and handed bank, which thereupon releases ihe money for the purchases made. The trustees have devoted con- siderable time to the management of this plan; and it may be mentioned that it has not been possible, for erne reason or another, to give the credit asked for in-every case. Applications for sums greater than ?400 are not considered. Ali the short term note obligations have been met; in fact somo of them were taken up before due data. It is not so much the extent of this islau that calls for remark, for after all that is comparatively small. The significance rather lies- in the favor- able impression created In the mind of the farming community, that here is a body of business men who not only say they are interested in our welfare, but are willing to back that up by supporting our credit. The business men on the other hand, have every reason to be satisfied with the success of the plan; for they see that they share, however indirectly, in the success of the fanner. AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS IX F. NORTON'S GARDEN, COALDALE, NEAR LETHBRTDGE i the material nooeasary to mnke for hlmielf comfortable and handsome) Esome surroundings. One of the chief siieclalLkia of this firm Is fruit true xrowlnis, and nl- ready thousands of young up plea and crabs have been raised and sold nil over the country. All of their largo fruits are root grafted from their scions grown at Coalflale so that their young plants are as hardy as possible. Apple Orchard The firm believes that the day is not far distant when, if any'farmer does not grow at least all the apples he requires for hla own use. It will ho his own fault. In support their own belief, they have 'an' apple or- chard of two hundred trees already set out, which is only one of several they have in contemplation. The work they are doing In plums la specially Interesting and valuable. As is well known, a plum that will ripen before frost is hard to get in the iveat, but this firm lias several new vnrities which ripen much earl- ier than the average fall frost and these cannot fail to be of great value to the western provinces, in a few years. These new productions were originally the work of D. W. Buch- anan of ;St. Charles, Man., who spent many years in selecting and improv- ing them before Nursery Co. secured his stock. A notable im- provement in Gooseberries is alto one of their specialties. None of the-cherries commonly In cultivation are hardy in tho west, hut this firm, along; anan's lines have, by selection and cultivation, produced a cherry which bids fair to take the pkrce of the eastern cherry ou the prairies. It id of good size, rfrpy prolific, and ripens four to aii weeks before frost, and promises to be quite an acquisition to the farm gardens on the prairies. Strawberries, fruits and per- ennial flowers axe to be found on their grounds, which are well worth a visit at any time. The Company lias a briacfa at La- corabe in Central A'.berta where they grow and carry a large stock of ever- greens.

A factory located here could supply the marlcot at a lower price and reap as groat or great- er profllR then the custom manufac- turers. The day Is rapidly passim; when Western Canada will buy all Its supplies from the east. The history of the "Western States will be dupli- cated in Western Canada, and tint manufacturer who sees the uoint first is thn one who will reap the reward. The city ot Lethbridge offers every inducement to manufacturers. Sites can be socured for a nominal rental. A Big Year The past year has been a one for business. Tho tremen- dous crop harvested brought a general prosperity to the district, and the city beneiitleil greatly. The wholesalers particularly'the implement houses, re- port thut -their business during the past year was greater than in several previous years. The Hour mills In Lethbridge have been exceedingly busy, particularly since the new crop of wheat became available. The Mari- naro macaroni factory has had a very busy year, and war conditions In for- eign countries have brought about a great widenlnr of the urea in which their eicellwit productions are mar- keted. for Oil Qu There haa considerable activity iu certain parts of this district dnrifls IMS In (IrlHIlK for oil prospects in places where geological Indications are favorablB. Four wells are being drilled near Cardston, about 45 miles south-west of Lethbridge, and other holos are being drilled near Coutts, and near Foremost, to the south and east of Lethbridge. Systematic worlt under good financial auspices Is being carried on. but tie development has not yet proceeded far enough to de- monstrate either positive or negative results an far as oil is concerned, al- though the natural gM proapects In some of the borings look favorable.

Yet all this has been accomplished in a de- cade, and.there is every reason to believe that the province is only on the threshold of its prosperity., Alber- ta hps more argicultural land than any other province, but as yet less than four per cent, of it is under crop.

Moreover, Alberta lias one of the largest irrigation enterprises in the world. Irrigation means, eventually, close settlement, intensive farming, and enormous production In proport- ion to the area under cultivation. With such a record behind, and BUCh possibilities ahead, the future oE agrl-cultura In Alberta, Is assured. Never before was the farm so attract- ive. No other pursuit offers the same assurance ot a good living and inde- pendence, the very fact that It takes brains as well as muscle to farm under modem methods has raised the farmer to a higher place in tho estimate of all other Hues of in- dustry. And nowhere will brains anrt muscle'find better reward than on an Alberta farm.
