TO KEEP TOM'S TOES WARM A POPULAR SPOKANE BOOSTER WAS PRESENTED WITH A TON OF COAL Nearly n ton of coal got out of 1.2th- bridge by the Spokane Chamber of Commerce special at five this morn- ing, without paying a cent of duty. General Agent Tom Wall, of tire Canadian Pacific of the Sunny City, is responsible for this surreptitious re- moval of fuel. In the columns of the Herald yes- terday it was diluted that a party of sepenaders would sec the Spokane? party oi'C aud that offerings of a char- actor which would further cement the gnod feeling already established be- tween and the inland Em- Dire 'would 'be tendered General Ag- ent, Wall. Promptly at midnight, a party of del- egates from Arizona, Idaho am! Oklti-" lioma appeared' before the Chinook club with heavy parcels wrapped in paper, under their arms. One of the ringleaders called for Mr. Wall, and in single file, escorted him to the de- pot, where many oi: the fagged Spok- nnHes were sleeping in their special. Silently removing tlio covers from their parcels, the delegation spoke: man referred toucliingly to tho dli tressed condition of Mr. Wall's fin- ances, caused by this trip, and offer- ed a ton of good sound Lethbridge coal to keep him from getting "cold feet" when he would greet his "hot. tor ninth-tenths" in the Washington metropolis.

AARON AARONSOHN TELLS OF PALESTINE O- Ancient Kingdom is Keen to Learn of- the Latest Ideas Dr. Aaron Aaronsolm, with his bro- ther Alexander, are visitors in the city all tho way from Palestine to the Con- gress. Dr. Aaronsolm is director Qt tho Jewlaii AKrfuulturul Experimental Station In Palestine, the central farm of which covers 150 acres, 'with two sub-stations, one at tho foot of Mount Cannot nnd another on the plains of Sharon, In the doctor's country di- versified farming plays a .prominent part. The climate In much the 'game as that of California. The doctor says his people are keenly interested In seeking after the most and up-to-date methods of farming, He paid special tribute to the interest shown hy the departments or agrlcul- tupa throughout tho world towards the work of the fanner which has largely been responsible for the estab- lishment of the experimental farm in Palestine, of which Julius Rosenwald, of Chicago, is president. Some few years ago the doctor discovered .a plant growing wild all over the hills of Palestine, and which is considered now by scientists as the prototype or ancestor of the cultivated 'wheat. This wild wheat -was an epoch-making dis- covery. H grows in uncultivated lo- calities, where the rainfall is not more than eight or ten inches a year. These localities are near the surroundings of the Dead which is 1200 feet he- low sea level, up to snow fields on Mount about 5000 foet above sea level. The wild wheat hag a re- markable range of distribution, and is a resisting plant to fungi diseases, and especially rust This interesting visi- tor IB now endeavoring to domesticate this wild wheat and scientists consid- er that if his people succeed in bring- ing about new races of wheat this will enable them to increase the area or cultivation the world over. Travelled 9000 Miles The doctor and his 'brother have just completed a 9000-7niie trip, com- ing here direct from Palestine. Both gentlemen are amazvul at the vast ter- ritory of Western Canada, and are specially -delighted with Lethbridge, which, they say, is so very 'beautifully laid out. They aleo spoke warmly ol the capabilities John T. Burns, the energetic secretary of the Congress, The most of tin's tract is all within two townships, is all unimprov- ed and is all steam plow land. It was .selected by ourselves some years ago when land was not as scarce. We had a lot to choose from.

"In- said tho doctor, "1 consider Mrs. Hums one of tho cleverest ladles it has been my good fortune to meet.1' The doctor did not forget to add that Dry-Farming was a much-discuss, od subject with tlio people of Pales- tiiife.

NEWSPAPER MEN WERE BANQUETTED PLEASING FUNCTION AS GUESTS OF CANADIAN BOARD OF CONTROL "But sho'w me the man can live without cooks." Or woman eith- er, for that matter. They do not exist among thu claii known as "the press." For that reason, unti incidentally to foster that spirit of good fellowship which ahoumls among the knights o-f tho pen, a banquet was accorded the visiting writers last evening in the Dominion block. It was well attended, particularly so. for at tho festive board were gathered some 05 men and women whose one thought beyond satisfying the demands of a hungry inner man, 'was to satisfy the demands of the fickle, new-hungry public, whose interest these days wavers .between the war in the benighted Balkans and the peace which reigns supreme among the great agricultural nations of the world as symbolized In the Dry- Farming Congress, It was a dry fanner's banquet. The menu, which is attributable to Pub- licity Commissioner Finley of the Congress, by whom the 'banquet was tendered, was a uniquo souvenir, and eash guest carrying one a'way will have a full set of -commandments known in the world. W. A. Buchanan presided at the banquet. On his right was Hon. Dun- can -Marshall, minister of agriculture, once a newspaper man, but now a "re- spectable gentleman." And ranged 'around were writers from all parts of Canada and the United1; Slates, and from ever BO far away as London, Eug. It was truly a least of the press of the world. After the menu had ibeen placed in the discard, half minute addresses wore in c-rder. Hon. Mr. Marshall fir- ed the first gun, und welcomed the people who did so much for the Con- gress, to Lethbridge on behalf of Congress. Miss Irma Matthews of Oklahoma was neit. She wants the next Congress for Oklahoma, and is likely to get it. She. went after It strong.

Flavelle, Spokane; Miss Cora Hind, Winnipeg, and John T. Burns. A vote of thanks was tendered to "Dill" Finley for producing the ban- quet, to which he replied in his usunl Inimitable manner. Rhynil .Tamieson added a song, nnd "30" .was called nbout the tinio a hurry up call came from the big auditorium demanding the attendance of the news gatherers j of tho universe. They dispersed in haste, hut all felt better for tho couple of hours together. Tho following v.-ere present at ttte newspaper banquet; D. H. Elton, Herald, I.ethbridge; J.

INDIA'S DELEGATE PAYS TRIBUTE "In all my experiences, 1 don't think have ever seen so fine, a dis- play of farm products as which is on exhibition here! at' this Dry- Farming Congress. It far surpasses the exhibit unade at the great Toron- to Exhibition this year." That is one of tile things which Mr. Coleman, superintendent of farm work1 in the state of Mysore, India, ;has j to say of the Congress" to which he is n delegate. Another thing he be-1 lieves about the congress is that it- will disseminate a-vast amount of knowledge to a vast number of peo- ple to whom it will be 61 peculiar benefit. have our own problems of dry- fanning in Mysore, India, with which the agricultural population have been working for a thousand years. But we are always ready to learn, "In my .state alone there'are (300 peuple, and the'government'is do- ing a great deal along agricultural experiment lines. We have now one agricultural college and are establish- ing more." Dr. Coleman is originally an On- tario man, ami 11 graduate of Toron- to University.
