Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta Idea) District for fruit raising, alfalfa, sugar beets and all grains Surrounded by the finest tract of irrigable land in the west. > AAiinnrin rrimnro c �� ___ ._. .___ 9........... . ThsTown is situated on the Crow's Nest branch of the C. P. R. COALDALE'S FEATURES CoaUlalo Is six miles (com the experimental farm. The land ;n tho vicinity is nil sold And Is I*ing rapidly settled. Already thoro are about thirty families and settlers In the CaAldulc district. A large number of fa ml Hon aro moving In thin tail. Sovon steam ploughs are o|>omt-Ing In tho district. The land Is owned by actual settlors and not by speculators, which means that wlihin a very short tlma that Conldntc will be a thriving town and will rival any town in the Northwest in the richness of its resources ami tho amount of farm products. BENEFITS OF IRRIGATION Irrigation not only insures a good crop each and every year hut it also lneuns that tho farms will l�o small and will brirg in a much more'thick-ly settled population than other lands. SUGAR BEET RAISING Sugar beet raising can Ins carried on more successfully and profitably here than in any other town in Alberta, .owing to the fact thnt Coal-dale Is in the centre of the irr.gut-cd district and is surrounded on all sides by choice irrigable Innds. As soon an the land Is properly cultivated, a sugar beet factory will To men seeking business openings there cannot be found any town in the Northwest that offers better inducements.

E. W. KINGSTON. RepnwftUUw Deur Sir.-For many years tho writer has lorged (or a trip ucro.ui the Atluntlc Ocean to rovlHit t'.o scenes of his early boyhood. ..ut now until this summer had he the justiflcatior. or tho opportunity f.-r doing so. That Justification came In rontinued nervous proHtrntion. and tho means In being permitted to take, charge of a cnttlo train to Montreal. A two thousand milu rido on a cattle train is something unique for a person to take and us many of my lr-lemls are nn.xlous to know about my trip, I lake tiie opportunity offeree! by your column* of satisfying them. This letter will give some im presslons of the trip unil some of the scenes by the way. 1 was warn ed that tho trip would likely be html on me, hut I emerged at tho other end dirty indeed, and very tirod, but with some fresh views of life un>l vigorous as a yotingnmn of thirty. Tho discomforts aro not worth while speakirg of. True wo had no palatial dining curs nor luxurious sleep -ing cars, indeed sometimes no place to sloop except tho benches. I believe, wo did not rido in a sin :le cahooxo, and wo had sixteen nil oi tho same variety with no snnHnry conveniences of nny kind and vorv primitive toilet arrangement. X might say that the parson travelled on tho train incognito. Dressed in j cheap, light colored summer suit J with no item of clerical attire, the parson saw some life without the repressive Influence of clericaHsni. Oftentimes I have doiilrted in this part whether the ordinary man !n the west had much ress>oet for th.� ofllco , of the minister. Hut I will never doubt again. Tho boys on lh>;ht was inky black ami a drizzling rain was railing. Hero and there a few | lights were to be seen. The tattle nvn and railway hands had work to do. Thanks to my kind and thought ful friend who got nw the trip. J was the gentleman of tho party, having r.o work to do. Don't take mo seriously there were othur gentlemen along. X man may do hard work and dress in rough cloth'ng ami vet lie a'gvntlcmnn. ibtt to resume, tho parson with heavvyrps no uuidc and knowledge �ivekfn*l. A thought struck me that it might be in the caboose I li..\l li-i't the night before, so to the caboose I went. There it an in plain view on tho floor. Theboys saw it nml agreed to leave it untouched until they would see if the owner came for it Aiter that I ate a hearty breukfaBt .My friends will bo surprised to know that 1 had had a series of losses previously to this. In Hay -moud I ha�l forgotten .my "laundry" at U'thbritlge 1 forgot to buy my half faro ticket; at Macleod I left my umbrella in the train awl also left at the station a three dollar lunch Iwisket I had brought to carry me to Winnipeg. Itetween Iteginn, where I lost my train and Uioad-view I lost inyftlS.fMJ rain coat. You may judge how much Kood tho ti*ip did mo when I tell you that in my return railroad trip I not only lost nothing, but picked tip a good many articles that I had no right to. The law of compensation works out In many ways. I was greatly pleased with the way the CI'.H. rushed through these cattle trains. They travol, for frolghl at groat speed, and loso no time at divisional points. I think we changed cabooses sixteen times, and each time they seldom tftop|x>d moru than flfleon minutes between our arrival and departure. It was dangerous to get off for nny reason whatsoever. Wo left Mncleod on a Tuesday evening. .Inly the 17th and arrived in Montreal on Wednesday the 2.1th. 1 believe on my arrival at the stoi-yards I must have Isvn the tftrtiest looking parson who ever arrived in the city. My most intimate friends would not haw recognized me. Hath-cil. clothed clerically ami feeling quite respectable again. I sought the Hoard of Trade building where I was to got my cabin passage in-l further information. Here I found a ticket for a first-class )>assago on tho steamship Othenia, Dominion line. At eight o'clock thnt, owning I vent on board and got settled down in cubin which I found very comfortable indeed. I was greatly amused at my young friend who r.ad charge of me, who advised mo to keep "mum" about coming down In charge of a cattle train. Perhaps ho said, some of tho "swells" will think loss of you If you "lot tlJls out." I thought of Bobbie llurns poem, "A man's a man for a' that." I will tell you about life on the vessel next week.
