Lethbridge branch C. G. K. Nourse, Manager HOW IS THIS FOR GARDENING (Clareshblm Review) Those who think vegetables do kindly to the soil of Southern Alberta would, have had their doubts scattned to the four winds if they re-en the exhibit shown the Re- view roan a few days ago. John R. Craig, the veteran rancher -brought in some spuds from the foothills which certainly would have disputed red rib- bon honors with the best grown in Canada. They were dry and mealy quite as good as the best of the much vaunted B. C. potato. Three of them weighed over two pounds one going two pounds and thirteen ounces A bunch of four weighed pounds. Craig lias found the foothills vevv favorable to potato growing and W, P. Roy Headquarters for ELECTRICAL SUPPLIES OFFICE: Brown Building Crabb Street Cold Weather Is Coming were no frosts during the sum- mer. Mr. Craig's testimony is borne out by Mr. Montague Leeds, who has made quite a hobby of potato culture and has attained gratifying success. But, the foothills are not entitled to ail tne honors. The veteran Lou Pal- mer was in town this past week and he brought in a load of vegetables which were certainly dandies. Mr. Palmer has a farm miles north, not far from Stavely, and in a coulee he grows vegetables. The coulee soil seems to lend itself 'to onion cul- ture. Farmers who think they are. making money growing wheat listen to this. Mr. Palmer raised eleven tons of onions on one-third of an acre. That means 33 tons to the acre and at 3 cents a pound figures out to ton, or nearly an acre. If Mr. Palmer can do it why not others. This is no "fairy tale for Mr. Palmer produces the onions in visible form, it's no imaginary crop. He has also had great results in beets and cab- bage. Mr. Palmer is an interestinc; character. 'Bluff and hail fellow, well met, an old engineer who sailed the lakes in the seventies. He was engineer on the boat which carried the steel for the famous Neebing ho- tel of which so much capital was made during the regime of Premier Alexander McKenzie. He doesn't claim to be -doing anything but mak- ing a bluff at gardening and farming but it seems to be a most profitable bluff. These men and others have estab- lished the fact that the potatoes grown in Southern Alberta are quite as dry as any grown in British Col- umbia. It is claimed however that High River is the northern limit and that north of. that the soggy potato is grown, which comes in for dispar- .aging comparison with its B. C. neighbor. Potato and onion culture promises rich reward to the man who is willing to go about their produc- tion in an intelligent manner.

Phone 103 for Good Hay i and Sound Oats i Some day a Robert Service will arise to sing the romance ot the rail- roads in this growing Canada of ours. Many a tale of risk and hazard and wild adventure, and often times of grotesque humor, might be told of the men who have stretched the steel from ocean to ocean. A tale of such sort is told of Arthur Trimble, of the class of '04, S.P.S. Art is one .of the most modest fellows in the world, a frisky boy with a rattling good tenor voice, which he used to lift up in song to the delight of his college mates, and an erstwhile solo- ist of the choir of Parkdale Presby- terian church. After graduating Trimble worked for a while for the .Canadian Northern 6ut in the western where he .met with some adventures which were as far remov- ed from the gentle art of music as is Peary's from Cook's opinion as to the identity of the discoverer of the Pole. One dark, rainy night; out in Sas- katchewan, Trimble, who was. in charge of one of the construction camps, foiiud that there was no dyn- amite on hand for the. work of the morrow. .To 9 b tain a supply would necessitate a tramp to the town of New. Battleford, at which point a trestle' bridge spanned the river, by crossing which the base ol supplies reached. Through some combination of circumstances nobody else was available for the undertak- ing, so Trimble in the spirit of the true pioneer tackled the job himselfl He tramped the wet and weary miles to Battleford, reached the span of pro- ceeded to cross it in the dark and wind and rain. He had not advanc- ed very far before he found that the ties had not. been spiked to the beams and that they moved in. a most dis- quieting fashion at every step. Brae j ing himself against the- wind, footing it very gingerly and cautiously from tie-to tie, with the rain beating ab- out -him, Trimble dared .not look for an instant at the river rolling below and after a series of miraculous es- capes, the Saskatchewan was cross- ed, an armful of dynamite was secur- ed, and the return trip was begun. When several hundred feet from the shore, Trimble suddenly came plump up against an engine that was syphon ing up water from the river below. There was no way of getting past except to climb along the footboard by the boiler, then in through the small window in the-front of-the cab. This Trimble proceeded -to do, but was stopped when half way in the window by the fire- man's sudden -and profane expostula- tions at "See said Trimble, coolly, "1 have an armful of dynamite, so don't get gay." The'road, was cleared without cere- mony. When Trimble reached Battleford, ne found that the trainmen bad nois- ed abroad the dynamite incident so assiduously that nobody would take lim, in for-the. night with -his danger- ous burden. Finally he walked a short distance out of town, hid the ixpiosive, and then .returned, upon a fresh quest for .quarters. His efforts v. ere, as unsuccessful as before. By this time the rain had stopped, so, after calling for a bundle of-laun- dry, he decided to walk down the line to 'vh-ere the boarding. cars of a con- struction Rang were standing, and to sleep with the foreman, who was a friend of his. When he got as far as the railroad the rain came on-again so .he stepped inside and askea the'agent if he might leave the aim! there for the night. The.agent looked at' him darkly. Is th1 at he asked.. replied Trimble cheerfully. "I'll just leave it here." "No. you shouted the sta- tion in a voice of tremendoas decision. "Oh, yes, I returned blithely.

I That resolution was so-modified at our -instance as to permit of .special 'contribution in time of emergency. Whether such emergency existed then 'or is imminent today, Is within know ledge of the British government and Canadian government.
