Sugar From this table it will be seen that there has been a steady increase in output v. ith each successive un- til tin? y.'ar 1907. The same condi- tions in tiiis year brought thc same results as in other farm interests. The lateness of spring and the short- ness of seasun prevented the -putting in of a full crop or prevented putting it in in yood time, which will account for the reduced tonnage of bi'ets and output of sugar. The grade of beets as good as ever, and this enabled the company to pay a ila. price of per ton for everything rought to the factory. With the best cultivation the net iin is from to per acre, al- nving -for interest, expenses and abor. An important advantage of the eet industry is that the returns oine early in the season and are vailuble with the harvesting and de- ivory of the b'jL-ts, and the price is practically fixed.

Despite the miserable shape of the grounds the football matches were pulled off, and while the play was not very fast or scientific they proved great tests of endurance and the win ners are entitled to all the laurels. The junior teams were first matched. Teams representing Frank and Cowley played first. The result was a win for Frank by 3-0. The Frank boys were then engaged with a team from Lundbreck, which match resulted in another victory for Frank, 7 goals to 1. They therefore carried off the Jun- ior Cup. For the Senior Cup four teams en- tered. The first match was between Cowley and Pincher City, which was won by Cowley, 4 goals to 2. The sec onrl was between Lundbreck and Bel- levue. The score was 2 2 at time. Joe Landry felt a shock on the arm while going from the kitchen to an- other room, the lightning travelling down the stove pipe. Chief received a slight shock in his left hand, which he had placed on a wire fence, while standing out in the rain. The chimney of .R. C. Beck -r's house was struck and demolished.
