Alberta's crop acreage is r twenty seven per cent, greater than last year. i'liat will mean a good-sized yield add to last year's. These days practically every mem- ber of the legislature, except O'Brien, will be slated for a cabinet position by somebody. s Does the Miller Anti-Gambling bill prevent Albertaus from betting as to who will compose the Sifrou govern- ment? As judge, the work of Hon. A. L. Sutou was Chief Justice. Alberta can rest assured that as premier his work will be chiefly justice. 'i.iere is no law against guessing on the present political situation. Every- one is entitled to that privilege. From Other Sanctums.] came the culprit's nervousness, and with a smile ho replied: "I prefer to be shot, sir, because then you'll be Tit- Bits. PASSING OF THE; RANGE High River Times. Howell Harris, manager or the Cir- cle ranch, was in the city yesterday on his return to Lethbridge from a visit to the ranch. Mr. Harris moved most of the company's, stock last fall from the range at Queenstown, south of Gieiehen, to its new range on the Ked Deer, north of Brooks, and will move the balance next month. The Queenstown range will then be sub- divided and disposed of for farming auds. Most of it is well adapted for rain raising, and Mr. Harris says that a'st year he threshed 60 bushels of Irst class oats per acre from the laud hat had been cropped .continuously to oats for the last twenty-one years In that time there was only one crop failure. The cattle came through the winter in excellent condition, and are in fine shape for putting on flesh during the summer mouths. Bros. ._ -cJ-dston-AIherta Orm? Bock Co Fernie, B Percy Beal.

De'Wet. and De La Rey, at the close of the war is giv- en in Mr. Carl Jeppe's book, "Th'e Kal- eidoscope which has a mel- choly interest just now. General De La Rey gave Mr. Jeppe an account of the Boer Generals' interview with-King Edward and Queen Alexandra on board the Royal yatch at Cowes in August 1902, when the late King was recover- ing from the illness which dC'layed the Coronation in that year.

"Oh. not at- all, but we wanted to know what we should have to do when we met his, Majesty. So I asked Lord Kitchener about- it. I told him that as ihe knew, we had no kings in our country; I had never shaken hands with one, but that we understood that there were certain rules called 'eti- which prescribed what was the proper thing to do. His reply was that he himself did not quite know what had been arranged, and that the best thing we could do would be to keep our eyes on Lord Roberts and him- self, and do what they did. "Good Friends" "So we came near to the King's ship, and walked up the ladder. Near the head of it stood the King, a smile on his face, and when he shook hands with us he said thai he was glad to THE CROP REPORT. The crop outlook is the main con- sideration at present to the great maj- ority of the people of Alberta and those who are directly interested In the affairs of this province.
