A Contrast Such a statement could not be made in comparing Raymond and an- other town of about the same size which is also Southern Alberta but outside the dry area. Raymond has irrigation ditches, but the effect liquor 1100 head of cattle, and 50 head ot than j horses, and is aiming to gradually work into pure bred stock. W, A. Redd had a good crop. His 180 acres of wheat yielded twenty- eight bushels to the acre, and from another 150 acres he threshed bushels. It was all wheat except 20 acres of oats. Bishop Anderson has 50 acres of fall wheat which yielded 31 bus. to the acre. It was first class wheat, won xirst prize at the fair. Sask-AS of the irrigation of the bar room is easily noticed in the staggering, noisy men on ,the street, or the.j drunkard lying in'a cellar.
