Steele, who delivered an address at the annual meeting of the SchoolmaBter'B club, Ool. J. B. Mitchell of tho 100th Granadiors, lately returned from Vakartier, says that the officers of tho west had' been overlooked la the selection of the officers of the first coutinsent. lie said tho west had supplied the men, but the officers h*a (been taken rfrom the east. Col. Mitchell pointed out that two commandBES had been taken from Ontario, one from Quebec, one from Bri- tish Columbia, but none from the prairie west. He declared it was the di4|y of them all to stand up for tho west against any other part of Canada. > :??  � *  ? ? * � : fOid butch"* cleans wood-work and floors, i puily and quickly. Reaches the difficult ' komers and crevices thoroughly cleaning ,�rith little effort Although the sheepmen In the pro vKice aro not exactly sure of higher prices for their 'wool no.xt year, tliu general ImpreEalou prevailing amongst 'them Is that tho sheep Industry v.'lll bo given u decided Impetus here by the heavy demand all over the world for woolUm i;ooc!s. It is expected that tho clip next year will exceed ail pvevlouB records in tho number of poundB produced, as lhare have been some good Importatfous from the United States, and tho spring Iambs, v/hich will shear as yearliigs next summer,- were an exceptionally good crop. Piices have lieen rising since thn outbreak of the war, and from 20 to :30 cents a poiuid is being asked in Montana for raw wools. Many factors are making for an increase. All the great armies 'in Europe require large (luantitles of woollens, and factories throughout the continent are working ; overtime to supply the troops with winter clothing and with blankets. Two or three days ago the British War office commandeered the total output of a number of the larger mills which fare running day and night. It was also recently announced that the exportation of raw wool has been prohibited, and there can be no question that the British market will absorb afl the available supply for some time to come. In the United States an immediate rise in prices occurred when the war broke out. This was due in large measure to the fact that the Australian supply has been greatly curtaHed. The American importations from Australasia are likely to be comparatively small so long as the British demand contiiuos. R. C. Harvey, one of the larges.t sheep owners in the south, today informed tho Herald that Boston men do not yet know where they are at on prices. Mr. Harvey says that it Is hard to predict any move in the market, but he thinks that with the heavy demand for wool, prices will eventually rise. George R^. Hatch, who has been associated with the sheep business for many j'ears, and who made some large purchases of wool last year for a Boston firm, says that an increase is Inevitable. Mr. Hatch is planning to operate a shearing plant at the fair grounds next year, and he contemplates using machine shearers. Neither Mr. Harvey nor Mr. Hatch have heard of any heavy losses to sheepmen from the recent storm. Southern Alberta today is oriuippcd with aibigger reserve supply of moisture tlvan it was at tliis time last year. Tho last storm has brought forth much comment on crop prospects, and although it is rather early in the game to make prodictions, there is no harm in recognizing the conditions as they stand, in the first place, tJh-e L,rouud was never in more receptive mood. Not for a couple ot decades has Jack Frost remained on a holiday .so late in the season. It is Octoi;cr ths 10th and we have yet to see a killing frost in Sunmy .'Vlbcrta this season. Jack is generally back on the job about Sopfember 10th, and his long absence this year is looliod upon with relish by the farmers. Last season was open until very Ir.t;, almost until tho new year, in fact, but tiie gr^ound was frozen and the rain and snow that fell was not absorbed. , The precipitation from Jan. 1st to Oct. 10th in 1913, was 13.r)9 inches. For the corresponding period this year the register says 11.39. Tho average rainfall over a period of 12 years is 10.GG. Anything below 20 inches is considered semi-arid, and tho fall of 14.39 is nothing to. write to father about, but tilie fact that over two inches of this has fallftn in the past few days when the soil was open and absorbant, looks like a good sign. If tho man who ladels out the woatlier doesn't get his dates mixed next spring, and gives us a snowfall such as the last one, along about the middle of May, Miss S. Alberta w-ill have some bouquets to feed the thresher next fall. The total hours of sunshine for 1914 to dale are 2130. The mean temperature lor September is 52-8. The maximum temperature for the month of September was 86, and the minimum 31. The figures were furnished by the oHicial observer at the Dominion Experimental Farm.

ForprospectUBWlStcnns.writc the Principal R. I. Warneti M Jl.,P.D., St. Thotaas, Ont. ______^ F That there Is 'urgent need In Southern Alberta for an immediate and rigid inspection of meats, especially pork, was the gist of the remarks made on Thursday afternoon by J. A. Smith, to the Council ot the Leth-bridge Board of Trade. Mr. Smitli made particular reference to the prevalence ot hog cholera in the province, stating that it was so serious as to demand attention immediately. If our hog irfdustry is to pros per. Cholera Is an Incipient and dangerous disease, and -while it has nev er been known to have been transmitt ed to humans, the carcass of a diseased animal cannot be said to be particularly healthy.. The disease has ravaged some of the finest herds in the district, and IMr. Smith is of the opinion that precautions are not what they should ibe.' He urged that the Board take the matter up with the Dominion Minister of Agriculture, Hon. Martin Burrell, with a view to having more rigid regulations adopted, using as an argument the fact that southern Alberta, Canada and the Empire needs every,.available pound of food products that can be raised. Mr. Smith also urged that farmers be more careful in the sale ot hogs, so that tlie disease might 'be spread as little as possible. The Board will take the matter up with the Hon. Mr. Burrell.
