Hejraldfy representative, Mayor D. Milne ex- pressed the general wish of the citi- zens of Medicine "Hat when he re- ferred to the desire for closer tele- phone connection with the rest of the province.. The Board of Trade of Medicine Hat have already taken the matter up and recently interviewed" their lo- cal member, Hon. W. T. the minister of agriculture, who has pro- mised to do all he can to have the connection made as soon as possible. In 'a conversation with the pre- mier yesterday the Herald man told of the growing towns and settlements Tabor and Medicine Hot. The premier was 'glad to learn that this section was developing so rapid- ly and that such a line would be able to be a paying investment for the government. But as the telephones "are under the department of public works the premier was .not familiar as to just the exact date that the connection would be made. However he stated it' would no doubt be made before long. As, an instance of how this long distance telephone line would be pat- ronized a little incident might be mentioned. A gentleman from- Cole- man, Alta., asked where the telephone office was for he wanted to leave his address because his friend in Coleman had promised to call him J up. When this man learned of the THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE HEAD OFFICE, TORONTO ESTABLISHED B. E.

I! gap betvyeen Taber arid Medicine Hat he was indignant. i When, talking Milne the conversation was interrupted by a telephone call. As the mayor turn- ed he said: "How handy it would be to talk to our friends in Leth- bridge in .tins way." _ Business men arid travellers would patronize the line because' 'it would be a great convenience to them. These new, live, growing towns of Seven Persons, Whitla, -Winriifred, Bow Island, Lake and -Purple Springs would plenty of local talk and the tributary-settlements would soon want rural lines .which would be profitable feeders. Nor .should it stop -here. The line should be ex-v landed on .eastward to Coleridge, Irvine and Walsh 'arid possibly to the eristern of Alberto, there to meet a Saskatchewan line coming west from Maple Creek., In a years connection would no doubt be made so that Winnipegers could talk to -Albert-ana who expect so'cm to have connections with. the Kootenay telephone lines and thence to Spokane and Nelson. This will be a reality in a very few years for there are only a few gaps to connect. Settlers Deserve Consideration Settlers, are coming into Southern. Alberta so 'fast and tire farming set- tlements are developing so rapidly that it is hard to realize the pres- ent conditions. In the past two monthis whale travelling the farming country no --poor crop has been 'seen or heard of. This can not but spell increased development ev- erywhere next year. More settlers will come, more ground will be brok- en, more business will be done by everyone. The crop acreage of 1910 will easily be double, nearly treble that of 1909.' These new settlers are deservin? nf consideration in regard to improved telephone connection.

New Schools in New Settlements In conversation with' J. Bro- therton. chairman of the Medicine Hat'school, board .and also president of the Alberta Trustees Association, the question of new schools in the .settlements ..was discussed. Often in a new settlement the people are too busy to get s-> very well acquainted or from other parts when they -never j had any experience in the organiza- tion of ntnv schools. Delay is caused for several reasons. A scarcity <-f leaders to go ahead and take the in- itial step. The start may be made by someone but there is still delay perhaps by local friction over a site sfor the school or difficulty in arrange ing boundaries satisfactorily 'to the j department who have an eye a neighboring district 'in the future. In other cases a technical error may be made as in one ca-ss where the people voted to borrow money by debenture to build a school-and pay teachers' salaries. No 'matter what is the .cause of delay still delays are often not wise and even dangerous. There are large families of children coming into Alberta to these settlements. Many are say about 12 cr 14 v-v-ars old and many are com- ing from other parts where things are different. If there .was a school they continue their education and so would become' better citizens SUNUGH SOAP THIS is IT i Thf soap that saves you work, and saves you money without injury to hands or article.

Many of these new settlers have already lost this years schooling. Can they af- ford another? Look at the map of the Lethbridge land district and think of the large new se'ttlementfe of this year and next. A school district is usually less in size than a township. There are comparatively few schools yet in this area. There is work for a spec- ial government-' organizer who could help these settlements over these or- ganization difficulties. Here is a concrete example: A child about twelve years of age lives on a homestead twelve miles south i Bow Inland sch "ol and has noth- irg special HV do all day. About the same distance -north; of another school was nearly a school full at one house. Alberta cannot afford to have its future citizens growing up in ignorance. The premier mention- ed yesterday that the province could afford the financial aid as in the past and that probably long a gov- ernment might be sent around: More Good Crops Farmers and .other citizens who have travelled in the country around Medicine Hat all report good crops this year and -a fiith in a contin- uance of good who farm along the best lines 'so as to fo'lovv' Campbell's system of soil tillage. H. H. who lives about- 12 miles south east of Medicine Hat, has about, 40 'acres of crop, all cut and stacked." According to -what has been threshed it will run fiiiy bushels of -oats, and thirty of wheat- as a safe .average. He has forty acres wbJteh has been summer fallowed this sea- son. He has had splendid resulis this season from spring plowing. The .stubble seemed to hold the _which made more moisture. W. E. Babingtos. who lives four miles south of Mcdicirie Hat, has four hundred acres in crop and has another large, patch of summer fal- low. T.; whose farm is one mile south of Medicine Hat, has threshed and" his' wheat yielded 30 busels to the was from a field of. 150 acres. Archie miles to the south west of Medicine Hat, has threshed. His barley, yielded over 40 bushels to the acre and his 25 bushels'. The crops around Creek Springs are first "class. -Everything is cut and stacked., Ross Creek is about east of Medicine Hat. The land -was all pretty well taken 'done. This year's crop has given the people the craze for farming, so the pasture fields, of the ranch cattle vrzll.be curtailed. Wm. A. Stewart of Ross Creek has j a fine crop and when stacking he! took three big loads from each acre. Other neighbors have just as good a crop. Mr. Stewart used pounds of twine when cutting 8 1-2 acres of oats. WH!

The council; are determiaed to find -what fs at the bottom of the basement of Medicine Hat. A Superintendent of Western Post Offices Mayor Milne of Medicine Hat in discussing the need of a new post office inspector for Southern Alberta heartily approved -of the plan. He suggested the need first for one for' the Lethbridge land district resident at 'Lethbridge but whose field could tte practicoljy tine :-v whole southern end of the province. In a'couple of years if the present rush of set- tlers keeps up still another -would be needed with headquarters at Med- icine Hat. said MrMMilne, "what is really needed is a'deputy of the post- rnaster general whose special field would be the western provinces.
