E'MPSON & rJUCHANAN Publishers F K. SIMPSON W. A. Bl'OKAN'AS SCBSCWPTtOM: n Advance Si.BO year O tierwlae 92.00 a y�ar ADVERTISING: Pet Month 91.00 Par Inch POULTIY FATTENING STATION. The proposition la now before the poultry men of this section to establish a poultry rattening station hero. A meeting to consider tho matter is to l� held on Saturday evening and it �s to bo hoped the poultry men will take hold of the project enthusiastically. The U�th -'bridge district should become noted for poultry raising. There is money In the sale of fowl, as well as eggs, and Ihoro is n big field to supply with these products. Let Lcthbridgc forge to the front and become the recognized poultry raising centre of the west. We have an ideal climate for poultry. * market all about us. in fact, alt the conditions that will make this class of business pay. The plan of operation and venditions upon which the poultry fattening stations will be operated are us follows: t. The poultry must be delivered alive and free of charge at the fattening stations at such times as may tw required by the department of agriculture. 2. Only spring chickens will be accepted unless arrangements have lieVn made for fowl. 3. All chickons must weigh at least III to 4 pounds each. 4. In no case will cock birds, crippled, deformed, sick or diseased birds be accepted, and the opcr utor in charge of a fattening station may refuse to accept any birds which in his opinion, are unsuitable for fattening purposes. f>. The ci op of all birds must be empty when received at the station and before being weighed. (This is most easily attained by cooping the Idrds the evening previous to deli wry.) (V All birds will be weighed alive on delivery at the station and the seller given credit for the total weight. 7. The department of agriculture will pay in advance eight rents pot |k>uml live weight for chicken, and nix cents for fowl upon receipt � f nn advice from the operator of the fattening station. 8. The department of agriculture ugroos to .provide suitable accommodation and efficient management lor such co-o|ierative |H>ultry fattening stations as may )� established nml to properly crate and fatten thu binds accepted from patrons, and to market the same to the best advantage. U. The department of agriculture agrees to keep an account of all revenue received from the sale of poultry and after deducting the amount of the original advance, ami the actual cost of fattening and mark-ling to return tho balance at the close of the season to the patrons in proportion to tho weight of poultry received from each. cratlc but it worships dear old royalty all I he same. The post office department ought ] to put a ban on some of the stuff that appears In the society columns of our newspapers, l^owrey's Claim* had to go out of business because it was nasty, hut we question If his talk was much worse than some of tho silly stuff one sees dished up for the ladles to read. Tho Toro.tto Saturday Night is a well-vdlted paper, except in Its Society Columns. In these It gives oeea-iioii for a visit of the censor ns we believe the following piece of twaddle will prove: "A splendid little chap, hugging a white plush liear (one of the latest toys In bahyland), attracted atten -tlon on Tuesday from the crowds going in and out of thr King Rd-wnrd. He was Master Forsee of HI IamiIs. grandson of Mr. and Mrs Chas. Held, who was Celebrating his third birthday with great eclat.' The poor little kid. Imagine how conceited he must have felt, as he stood in the corridors of the King Edward with the crowds rushing out of cafe find dining rooms In gape at the "splendid little chap." If the newspaper accounts are to be depended upon, Calgary Rave Itarl 0 ivy a very frosty reception. Prolstbly that city blames the governor general for the poor show it tirade in the census.

We told you so. Once Ior Day celebration c no would linngino another political election was on. A Hamilton man died at Mitiln-cognashene. Probably his death was brought about in attempting to pronounce the name of that place. Americun newspapers have gone crazy over this paragraph, which came over the wires from Europe: "King Edward of England travelled to. Karlsbad by automobile yesterday, whoro he lunched with M Townsend of Chicago." They look upon 11 us unother grout viotory for an American woman. To think that -ttngland's King would automobile a few. miles to dine with an American lady, swells their heads so badly that they have to load up column after column of their papers with a description of the King's trip, the luncheon, etc. The Unltod States likes to feel it is very demo- Saskntrhewan went ens! for a t>p-ul> Attorney General and the selection of Frank Ford of Toronto, could not lie improved upon. He know Mr. Ford nnd in Ontario his reputation as a lawyer is of a high character. He has l>een in touch with public affairs Indirectly, for years. For *ov-eral years lie was the confidential secretary of the late P'Alton McCarthy and later lie was private secretory to the late Premier tlurdy of Ontario. Then he �became solicitor to the Ontario treasury, resigning to practice law with a leading Toronto firm. Mr. Ford will bring to his new position in Saskatchewan wide acquaintance with law and will lie sure to give that province good service. Alberta celebrated its first birth -day last Saturday. This province is a lively nnd progressive youngster nnd the time is fast approaching 1 when it will have most, of the older provinces l-eaten in wealth and population. Its destinies are guided by a wise ami a progressive gov eminent ami the next few years will see wonderful development in Al bertu. The trip, which the llernld has fro-qiH-ntly urged, sltotilit lie mode to the west by the mciiitter� of the Sen. ate nml House of Commons, is likely to be accomplished. A motion will be- made at the next session of parliament in favor of such action and it is ulmost certain to l.e adapted. Our Legislators at Ottawa are painfully ignorant of the .went and u visit out here will enable them to deal more intelligently with tfce affairs of this part of the Dominion. Senator MrMullen. a Liher.U Senator with a nurrow vision, complains that Ontnrio newspaper* nre to blame for the great exodus from Ontnrio to the West, because they keep talking about tho west all the time. Now, the Senator wouldn't object to talk about Wellington county, Ontario, all the time, oven if it might cans.' the depopulation of bordering counties. The Senator will find out. that a good thing always attracts |tcoph> und that is the tus> In the vest. People rome out here because there are tiettcr opportun -ities to make money than In Ontario. The son of an Ontario far-iner can't get a farm of his own in Ontario unless he pays a big price, but he ran come west and pick up a half section of as fertile land as is to he found in tho world, for a mere pittance as compared with Eastern prices. Don't worry Senator McMul-len. tho growth of tho West isn't hurling Ontario. Tho wholesaio houses and manufacturers would haw l�oen out of business long ago if it hadn't boor, for tho great growth of Western Cwnadu. Tnber is growing. F.very time 1 visit the mining town-and 1 shouldn't call it a mining community because 1 saw around the town some exceedingly fine crops. t ant Impressed with the really wonderful development of this place, whirh three years ago was only inhabited by gophers nnd Jack rabbits. New buildings are arising everywhere the eye turns. The mines nre all busy i.nd the people nre confident the r.ew owners of the Tnber mine will push things along nt a lively clip. They tell me down there that the new manager ex|>ects to turn out 2.000 tons a day In a year's time, as well FIRb FIGHTING TIPS * -.......- Gathered by Chief Humphries at , Cilery Convention.

Prominent lire chiefs from all over the Western States and Western Canada were present nnd most helpful papers were rend.
