LETHBRIDGE AGENTS "If. you live out of town write us." it will all be .one. live, hustling, busy town. Turning eastward between fenced! fields .we looked ahead to the siding of Wells with its new elevator, grain fields and new buildings, showing up in any direction we looked. About the only range pasture left is to- wards the Milk River Ridge, faut it, too, will no doubt be brought under cultivation. About a year ago -this winter we visited the Wells' Land and Cattle Co.'s farm. Many changes are now- noticed. One fact worthy of note is this. Here is no speculat ve real es- tate man with a checkered townsite, but the real thing in grain fields growing- bumper crops. Wells Siding. The '..Alberta Wheat Growers' Co. have acres of which. is in crop this year, and they have now acres of fall wheat already sown, and 800 acres if it is up and in fine condition. Seven binders were iised this year. They have nine four- horsc outfits, but had to hire more teams. They have one 32 h.p. Reeves engine and a Deere engine gang plow. This engine was used for breaking 900 acres, and besides, they broke 700 acres with. a hired steam plow.- Next' year they will crop acres. This year's wheat crop on stumble, breaking and all is averaging 35 to 40 bushels to "the spring and faty wheat. The oats in on flax stubble are averaging 40 bushels to theL acre. One threshing outfit- has been busy for about three weeks and Will have two weeks work yet. As the grain is threshed it is loaded in cars as fast as cars can ,be got, and shipped to'Fort "William and sold. They have 600 tons of good oat straw which, they will bale and put oh the market' for" feed. This is a nsw wrinkle in making1 use of the by- products. A penny saved is a penny earned.' They also utilize a corn king manure spreader, and find it is of some advantage. A Farmer's Elevator. A new bushel elevator is be- built at the Wells Siding.' It is about complete and will be open to the public in a fcw when the highest market price will be paid for all kinds of grain. It will also keep a supply of all kinds of seed grain and keep for sale both ground and whole feed oats. Farmer's House. The Practical Farm Co. have a farm of acres on .the eastsids of track. They have built a set of farm buildings. The extra is needed to grow wheat. Bam the Coulee, But Not With Words i None of these farms at Wells Sid- _ ing- use irrigation. They dammed the I coulee, not with words, but with j earth, and from the natural fall of rain and snow have a half mile of j water eight rods wide and ten feet, deep.

Moonlight Scene. The sun set and the "old chief" of the Rocky Mountains stretched his head up in the mirage to view the. latest moving picture on the plains. The man. in the moon was full with a j bright, happy face, for he had been! viewing the happy hustling harvest- ers all the way westward from Lake of the Woods.

Paper The new railway line which has just been surveyed from Burmis to Car- bon Hill and on to Morrisey, will soon be a completed work. The Company is rushing the construction supplies and. material necessary for immed- iate construction of the road. There is no doubt but that it will make Car- bon Hill and Burmis important cen- tres, but more than that it will open up a magnificent stretch of country Hill and Morrisey. The land in this section is rated first class and is also well timbered while coal fields are numerous. The route of the railroad will be through the North Koote.nay pass at the head waters of the Old Man Ri- ver. The route is also'a great saving in mileage from Burmis to Morrisey, as it avoids the heavy climb up the Crow's Nest and the loop at McGil- livary. A percentage of the through freight will be carried on this line. 3027 LADIES' ELEVEN-GOKED SKIRT Paris Pattern No. 3027 All "Seams Allowed.
