There is no doubt Frank Sherman's Sugwtion to Cure Coal Famine I Evil Frank, Nov. H.'Shermari president of-.'the'" jni tiers' izstkm in Alberta, has a new sugges- tion" as a the. annual fuel shortage in the prairie provinces and which he thinks will recur this winter in as serious form, if not more so than two years ago. "There are no stocks of coal in tha prairie said Mr. Sherman yesterday' I look for much hardship to- farmers living a long distance from railroads. I have known an instance o! a farmer driving ninety miles for coal and having to wall week for it whlfi he got to town. "What remedy would I suggest. I think that in regions where farmers must haul their coal a long distance tho. Government should establish coal yards and always keep an am- ple supply on hanol. I see no other real cure for the people will not stock up ahead and the dealers can't afford to hold largo stocks a long lime for their accommodation.

There was a rumble of the heavy mass getting into motion. Then the dog trot of the bison quickened into a gollop -with the response of a troop of cavalry horses to a bugle call and in clouds of dust the unwieldy beasts charged across the enclosjire straight at the high bluff whose ver-, tical face had been supposed to be j insurmountable by anything on feet.

Right up the abrupt wall the bison charged, each making a trail, that was a little easier for the one that was following him. Up the blufi and over the ridge, bel- lowing in triumph and twisting their short tails in victory, the ungainly gallopers passed and then spread out in three directions until the work of months was undone and they were their own masters, defiant and xm- conquered.k A short Distance up the cliff a. photographer from Butte had station- ed himself, selecting what he thought was a good vantage point from which to get pictures of the last of the bison while they were yet on American -soil.
