Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PACK BIGHT THE l-BTIIBRIDr.B PAltT HEBAI.D SATURDAY, MAY It, Mi ENORMOUS DEMAND FOR "FRUIT-A-TIVEr Boxes Sold Last Year. Six of Fruit Liver Tableti for Every Man, Woman and Child in the Dominion. LOCnl MEMBER IS AFTER BETTEI And In seven short years, "Fruit-a-tives" has become the most famous and the most widely used medicine in Canada that has ever been introduced to the people of the Dominion. Even those who take "Fruit-a-tives" regularly and recom- mend these famous fruit juice tablets to their friends, probably have no idea of the enormous number ot I-rmt- are being used by those wishing to regain their health. Last' year, over eight thousand gross boxes pt "Fruit-a-tives" were sold. As there are one hundred, forty four boxes in a gross, this means that over oae million one hundred thousand boxes were sold in 1912, And this year this number will be still further increased. This means a box of "Fruit-a-tives" for every six persons in Canada, or six tablets for every man, woman and'-childin the country. 1 "Froit-a-tires" are sold in every section of the Dominiea. On the rugged Atlantic, throughout the Slimline Provinces, among the French in Quebec and the English iu Ontario, all over the great Provinces and on the ihores of the Pacific, is the best selling medicine m stock.

Those who have taken up hoiuosti-ails i and .pre-emptions in the pro-euipllun district in Southern Alberta iind con- ditions very unsatisfactory; and Hint Is ono of the reasons for the demand which has been made upon the minis- ter and the Government for a change in Abe Act. The. crops been un- satisfactory, and farmers hove not been in a position to meet their pay- ments. In my district, the almost gen- a-al demand Is that the payment shall be cancelled altogether, and petitions have been placed In my hand, and no i doubt in the hands minister to i Siat effect. I know'that the proposed i amendments are not satisfactory to a I great majority, of the homesteaders. I The petition which has been most i largely signed was prepared by the j Farmers' Union, at Foremost, Alberta, j and it is known as the Foremost Plan. I1 might read Is to give the House an idea of how the homesteaders feel j and what they actually want; -To the Minister of the'Jnlerior, Ot- Itaw'a, Ontario: i We the undersigned pre-emption holders humbly petition the JUnister of the Interior to allow proof to be made for a pre-emption at the rame time as a homestead or any time thereafter, providing the necessary Im- provements have been made, and with- out payment, at the time of making such proof or obtaining such patent.

One trouble, n many sections -of my district Is what, is known as the professional lomesteader who proves up and soes away, leaving the land to He idle. Con- nequ'entry, the land is not made pro- ductive and settlement Is interfered ith. The argument .has been advan- ced that if the minister liad made pro- visions whereby settlement wculd have been Instance he had provided for a reduction in the cost of homesteads and pre-emp- tions in case of further improvements would have been more in the in- terest the country and permanent settlement; that if more were requir- ed in regard to fencing, and the am- ount of cultivation, or provision made that certain number-iof stock should be kept, the pre-emption fee might be reduced or abolished altogether, thereby encouraging settlement. t Knowing as I do, and as most of the western members In .the House do, the effect of abandoned homesteads, believe that asistance along that line would have bsorf.of greater bene- fit to the country than the proposed amendments. The minister has pro- vided for tho-removal of a portion of the interest. .My own view is tie should have gone all the way and abolished the Interest for every year. If it is wise to remove the interest for a certain rcertainly it should be wise to remove It altogeth- er; and I want to urge upon the min- ister and upon the Government that the interest should be removed alto- gether so as to give some awistanre the homesteaders In that country. 1 would like to emphasize tin- fact that the proposed provision looks to me to be of' more assistance to the man with money, who is taking up a homestead or pre-emption with the object of getting his patent in order to make a Ealc. and who then leaves the country, than to the man who wants to become a premanent settler.

I by OruggUM Everywiitra berta, and who is anxious that, what- ever provisions nro made by thSs Government shall he along the line of encouraging perauiuent kettlecs. He says: I notice in the .Lethbridgo Dally Herald of March 31, an article inform- ing us that the Dominion Lauds Act is about to be amended. 1. have read the proposed amendments 'through carefully, and have, ihonestly conclud- ed that a worse thing could not pos- sibly happen this immediate locality than to allow those amendments to become law. The Government thought I presume, honestly, that it was doing a great thing tor tlie home- steader when it exempted'him from building a ?300 house and allowed him to perfect his proof with, any kind ot a 'shack' or hovel.' Whom did this'benefit, and wiiat is-the re- sult? It surely did not benefit the actual bona fide settler w-ho wishes to make his home here, raise a family, build schools, churches, roads, bridges and other evidences of progress and I civilization, and who Could not pos- sibly live in a house that cost less than 5800. Tile only one It could pcssibly help Is the man that takes up a homestead on a gamble, .living on. It just long enough to make ncces sary Improvements to comply with the law, and who then returns to the cities or states whence be camo, leav ing the homestead and 'shack' a breed Ing place for noxious weeds and gophers, and an eye sore to the actual settler who remained hoping to build up the country, and whose efforts will naturally enhance the value of the absentee's land. Now regarding those amendments, ot what benefit arc they to the locality as a whole'; They will enable a niimbcf of those fellows to prove up on their pre-emptions at once and return to the States with a title, to acres of land in their pockets; but the actual settler .who wishes to make hia premanent home here, what] difference does it make to him j whetihtir ho proves up on his land thla year or three years hence? Re- garding tho amendment allowing a homesteader to have stock Instead ot I will say In all. sincerity that 320 acres of. this land will not support 2-1 head of cattle all the yem-, unless the homesteader raises grain and tamo grasses; and In order to do no he has to do the breaking, anyhow. So of-what Is the 'concession'? I merely read this letter to give you tho opinion of' a very intelligent anil representative hometcndcr In my dli> trlct offering r.bjeullons to provisions, whloh, In a way, will help the home- steader who is n speculator to get Me hind very readily, and if ho so deslreu, to leave the country. I want partic- ularly to urge upon Hie minister that he interest should be entire- y. If it was wise to remove It for a jart of the period, It ought to be also to remove it altogether, and that would bo of some practical assistance farmer. In my oiltrlci, 'as 1 said the sentiment Is that the, amendment should oven more liber- al, und, In order to encourage prem- aiieut settlement. If some amendments had i been'made to encourage improve- ments, and the investment of the money IB tlie actual improvement at the land, to offset the payment made to 'the Government, it 'would have gone a long way.towords encouraging settlers and Tioinaateaileri.
