In fact, it is impossible. by .this method to compete with, outside growers jivho now supply more thaii half our local market. For example, "there, are at present momein four cars of on- ibe iona eii route to Lethbridge from A rica and Spain. To say 'that we can- not grow the Spanish onion is hardly a sufficient answer. Because of the enterprise of local gardeners in storing some three hun- dred tons of potatoes where they will be available duting the coldest weath. er, there will .be no potatoes shipped to Lethbridge. from outside points this winter. This is a decided step in the right, direction, but as a city we can claim none of the credit. We arc out for industries.
