That's how much W. F. Stevens provincial livestock commissioner, Jlinks of tho American' market for Alberta livestock. Mr. Stevens was 111 ho city Saturday. He is taking u couple of weeks' holidays and will visit a number of friends in the south- ern part of the province. In speaking Herald reporter, air. Stevens mentioned the heavy shipments of cattle -aud. other livestock from the south to Chicago, St. Paul aud other markets across the line, aud said: "If the duty were put on our market in Alberta would go mighty flat. It is the enormous demand of the Chicago market that assimilates our heavy offerings of this season of the yeah Certainly Canadian live- stock men and wool growers do not hope for tho defeat of the Democrats on Tuesday." While talking with the Herald man, Geo. M. Hatch came along, and On hearing of the great growth of the Lethbridge stock yards Mr. Stevens was greatly pleased. He looks for Lethbridge" to bo the third big live- stock distributing centre of the pro- vince. It should have been recog- nized long ago, he thinks, 'but the present combination of circumstances is bound to bring the yards into pro- minence. The farmers are both anxious to secure cattle and they have the money to buy them, so the in- crease in livestock holdings is bound to be great. Mr.' Stevens, however, does not think the south will ever be ,i great hog-raising district. The south will raise the sheep while the north is raising the hogs. Alberta will feed more stackers this winter than ever before, thinks the commissioner. The reason is that Al- berta has the feed while the farmers of Manitoba are selling off part of their herds to liquidate their debts. A lot of Manitoba stackers are coming into Alberta now and the south farm- ers are taking most of them.

Today's snow has held up threshing in some parts. The storm area is not extensive, Lethbridge appearing to be the centre. In the Cardston district there was no snow, but Spring Coulee district and east received quite a-fall during the night. Bast of Taber and Foremost, there was no snow, and north of Carmangay on the Alderside line there will be little delay. In the district about Lethbridge, hoNvever, threshing will be held up for three or four days. The feature of this week's reports is the increasing number of points re- porting shortage of cars, with eleva- tors full Nothing in the nature of a blockade has occurred yet, however and the C.P.H. hopes that within the next week the supply of cars will he more plentiful. The delay caused bs the storm will also result in removing the car shortage danger at many points.

More than the usual jimount of fall ploughing is being tlone, and this, to- gether with the area that was sum- merfallowed, .places a very large area in good shape for next spring sowing. CHAMPION Champion, Alta., Nov. is getting pretty well finished in the neighborhood. Three outfits have closed down for repairs, and a num- ber of the larger outfits are pulling in, partly on finishing work, partly be- cause of scarcity of men.
