We see by the Moose Jaw Herald that Hon. A. M. Carliie, one of N'orth Dakota's most noted men, has located at Moose Jaw. The farmers in this locality are wearing a smile that reminds us of a watermelon with a slice cut out of it, all on account of the splendid crop prospects, which is enough to make a man congratulate himself for living io Alberta and it is safe to venture the assertion if the future can be judged by the present time, with the surplus of moisture, we are bound to have a bumper crop. (Sioux City, Iowa, Journal, May 9.) The Southern Alberta Land arid Development company, a Sioux City enterprise, whose board of directars is composed of D. S. Lewis, pres- deat; N. A. McFaul, vice-president; S. Grady, treasurer and secretary: W. C. McNeil and F. W. Phiiiips. during the past year has purchased outright acres of wheat lands in Southern Alberta, twelve miles across the boundary line and some forty-two miles south of Lethbridge. The emigration into this district by way of North Portal, on the Soo lino, during the one month of March. 1909, was 726 cars of sot- tiers effects and it is estimated that fully as many settlers from the Unit- ed States went over the Great Nor- thern, the Burlington and the North- ern Pacific lines, and while no offic- ial statistics for the month of April have yet been published, it is known that the number of settlers is con- piderably larger than that -of the pre- vious month. Bruce Walker, com- missioner of at Winnipeg, estimates the wealth of the United States settlers who have come into Western Canada at The part of the movement at this time i? to the Southern Alberta wheat district, and this is not surprising when it is known that the govern- ment statistics show the wheat yields to run ,from 40 to 60 bushels to the acre and a rainfall remarkably even j and abundant for the successful rais- ing of small grain of every kind and also an attractive climate. An at- tractive feature, also, is the cheap which underlies most of the land In places where it crops out at the surface this coal can be had free for 1 MOVING PICTURES. ADVANCED milllilliillHIIIH 1.

A goodly proportion of this emigra- tion into Canada is from Iowa, Mih- Nebraska, asd South Daka- ta as well as from states farther east. Jn the vfcinity Sioux City towns such as Pierson, Kingsley, Hawar- den, Orange City, Sioux Center and ethers are contributing their full pro- portion both of settlers and of capital i fjr incvestmeat. In connection with its land business the Sioux City De- I velopm'eht Company is opening this season a wheat ranch at a cost of The general man-: ager of the company, F. W. Phillips formerly of McNeil, 'Neb., reports that the traction plvws, under the able guidance of H. N. McAdow. who will be well remembered here, are working from ten to fifteen hours per day, converting virgin prairie into productive wheat fields in what will be known as the ranch, christened after the home state of its owners, and where the latcnstring will be out to all throsa who hail from the Hawkeye or neighboring states. Due to the large development work being carried on by the com- pany, a 'goodly number of Iccal in- vestors are purchasing land in and around the company's holdings in order to realize the advance accruing to the land as a result of the com- pany's development work. Among others could be mentioned T. S. and J. P. Martin, who purchased ac- Carl Smith, of Bantrv, D., is m t m-u T> m res; T. A. Thompson, R. C. A. Flour- :f. could never lujk :ss tin- face.

Once more the merriment twinkled Jn the little gimlet eyes whose owner held his sides and shook from shoe to collar button.
