Speaking fur thcr in jjeply to 'these statements the Review says:- T. P. Mosle.v, who lives about four miles ea-tt of Claiysihcrfm, off 100 acres had 4000 bush^ of No. 1 Alljerta H�d Wheat-40 bushels per acre. T. G.

Ver.y Idttle more grain will l)e harvested and thoi:'p will be almo.'jt a total failure." In a letter to the sccrothry, t^o editor of the pafwr asks for the real facts of the case as bo .says ho df>o.s not think the situation is as bad u.s this article would indicate. It is gratifying to know that, some of our American cousins .show a disposition to inquire into the facts of the ca-so before taking in all the silateniL'-vts that are prompted by lantl > koiiIs who are anxious to dispose of thcii T.;xas, Oregon and Washington I.  d.s , and by businessmen of the ecu nullities who fear thnt if the fuels c. n-oarning Alberta nro known, their field of business activity will be dispopu-laited. The Claresholni Iteviow i'ltorvicv'cd li. H. UghUmd of Cluiresholrn, tlie eon of Huns L. Ughland referred to in the article and of the interview says:- The information from which the second article sprang is attributed to Ij. H. Ughland of Clarosholm. .Mr, Ughland when seen concerning 'ibis article positively denied that he had made any such statements. We know Mr. Ughland well, enough to place more confidence in what  he says than in any statements ; made by the Devil's Lake Journal. No one who has seen the Clares-boiffi crops would for a motnent be- their best people from coming to .Vl-berta, the land of nboumling prosperity ? .\It matters little, who is the liar. Ailwrta "lints settlers with sufficient intelligence to .see through such obvious falsehood and find out the facts. Gullible people are not Alberta's choice of sfttlei-s. --- The Alberta Sunset. People living in countriw favored with an abundance of frees,' ospecial-!y Canadian Maples, are wont to indulge in ecstasies over the brilliant beauty of the autumnal foliage of the trees and vines. The first frost in the Eastern provinces brings forth the scarlet and gold of the maple, the brown of the elm, the rus.sot of the beech, and tho yellow of the poplar and willow. The ivy and the other vines take on their varied hues in a veritable luxury of lieauty. Alberta has none of this Ijeauty, but her autumn charms are far more enchanting. The pen of the most gifted writer and the tongue of the most briiliant orator are utterly unable to tiescribe the marvellous beauty und grandeur of an AUxjrta sunset. .As the sun sinks liehind the mighty Uockies, the sky and clouds from the zenith to the circle of the horizon are one mass of color, the mos^t brilliant hues all in perfect bar mony and oA the most delicate designs. The changing shack} a^d wavering lights are such as bring poetic thoughts to the most prosaic ond c.Xt clamations of wonderment from the most sitaid. The beauty of the Ontario forest or of the .sunset on Lake Huron paics boiore the transcentkjnt glory of the AllxM-tnii autumnal sunset. people can now go down to the mining town without Ijoing compoillcd to remain practicayy two nights away from home. One thing is contain and that is that Mr. Borden's reception in .Alberta wa.s not warm enough to set the prairie on fire. Alberta's Test.

Never in her agricultural, history has Allxirta had such difficulties to overcome! Probably never again Will tlio .season bo so unfavorable. This season has boon Alberta's testing lime. She has proven that oven under adverse circumstances, this fair province is a safe agricultural country. The governor of 'an American state was recently wedded. The britle's brother gave him *50,000. The governor's political opponents will now say that he accepted a bribe. Have Lethbridge graduates attended to their registration for the first University Convocation ? For the stecnth and last time, fair warning- going-going -! The very excellent periodical, Canadian Life and Uesources, has an e.\-tensive write-up of the Carmangay Farm, near Clarosholm. Some splen did cuts are also givcfn. The Edmonton Journal reports faithfully and elaborate.y all of R. L. Borflen's sjiccclics and then publishes the Conservative platform so the people may know what the leader is trying to talk about.

Few of the men who bulk large in the public out We�t are native to its plains. A new generation, it is true, is growing up who know tlio prairie as a childhood homo. At present, however, those who fit in the high places and occup.v the .�tats of the mighty are the men who i.'a"-ed to venture, tien, tiventy, or thirty jToars ago, and the pionejr in w'�iat was then superliatively a new c unlry To this class belongs Hon. Gecrge Hedley Vicars Dulyea, Lieutenant-Governor of Alberto who left his New, Brunswick home in 1882 ami to ik up his residehce, after a 4hort .sif.y in Manitoba, at Qu'Appelle, Saskiitchc-.wan. Mr, Dulyea's name has boon a puzzle to many. All iti intinmtes is tiiat he is probably not English. His dark square face syggests ihat ho might be French, but he is ni>t. �!r. JIulyea is of Dutch descent ai'i of United Empire Loyalist stock. Born at Oagetown, Ntew Brunswick, .Ftbru ary 17, 16.59,1^ he is in his 4&th j'oar, and should have a long career of pub lie usefulness yet before him. After a brilliant course in the University of 'Now Brunswick, from which he graduated in 1878, he taught Sunbury county (N.B.) grammar school until 1882. This position he gave up to go vest. Alt Qu'-Apiielle he settled and went into com niercial life. He conduoted a furniture and flour and feed business until other pressing demands on his time caused its relinquishment in 1808. While buihlihg up his material fortune he was also at work for the state. In 180-1 ho was elected'to the j Northw^^st f'ouncil, where he did' good work. Early in 1898 his abil-' Hy ruceivcd projier recognition when ho was appointed to ^be important office of administrator of Territorial alTaira in Yukon. This position ho held until September, when he return cd to Begina and was elected again at the Territorial elections. His ap-pointn>ent as Minister of .\griculturo followed. On February 4. 1903. he liecame Miinister of Public Works, broadening his ex|>erience in public affairs and finding greater sco|>c for hie exei:uti>'e ability. An' adminixtcator of safe and conservative temperament his canwr in these official positions was eminently satisfactory to the country at large. When Alhi'rta became a province ho became bor first governor. He recoiv ed the appointment on September 1, 1905, and since that date he has filled the position with taot and dig-n ty. The West, not impreesc*! by garish display, has recognized in him a gentleman of probity and character and he commands universal rcsiiect. Mr. nulyoA in 1883 married Miss Annie Blanche Babbit, second daughter of the late R. T. Babbit, registrar Queen's county. New Brunswick. Mrs. Bulyea maintains the dignity of Government Houac in a charming manner. Without- excessive formality she leads the society of the capital uno.stentatiousiy but skilfully. When at Regina the urbane icgislat or and his wife wiere in the habit of inVfting in for an evening parties of students from the Normal School. On these occasions, Mr. Bulyea would, they sn.v, waj'Iny one of his guests and hold him up for a game of check ers, of which he was fond. .\t Edmonton, where everyone has good horses, the governor likes to leave his coachman at home and ilrive his own team. In tlte 'summer, with his wife, he takes up residence in l.-is beautiful home at Peachlands, C. Here in the fruit district he in.'i' a-bly remembers his personal friend� east of tile Rockies with the f.rst fruits of the season. Governor Bulyea is loved and respected throughout Alberta, and undoubtedly will continue to grow in favor as the years go by. WILL RUN IN MACLEOD (Prank Paper.) Frank H. Sherman, district president of U. M. W. A. is authority for the statement that the combination 'between the U. M. W. A. and the So ciety of Ekiuity, formed with a view I to placing candidates in the field slz Macleod and Medicine Hat ridings in the next Dom^on election, is an as- . sured thing and that he wiB be the candidate in Mactcod riding instead of Medicine Hat as had hitherto oeon ' assumed would lie the case. Sudd Red Deer people are kicking for a new station and freight shod. ^ OUR POINT OF VIEW A Winnaiwg man says that ho sees defeat staring the Liberals in the face in the coming federal elections. That fello\y's eyesight is bad; he should invest in a pair of sjtcctacles. Announcement! LETHBRIDGE lUICTION MRRT FRANK G.
