Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LITHtaiDOE, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER If, IICI PAQC THREE Buying Horses A man doesn't snap up a Horse because he looks all right. At a usual thing, He leads the nag out wHere the light is good and strong and examines every hair of his hide. He squints under each hoof for tnelgzand hailing lion of distress and peeks down his throat for dark secrets. He wants to know the horse's he is mighty particular about getting a line on the man he's doing business with. When all this is made satisfactory and tHe price agreed upon, the buyer will further stipulate that should the horse turn out a roarer, be balky or not otherwise as represented, He can get his money back. i iiii nkiy be too caution uut it mignty good uusincss. nutn uuys noise for use and wants him as nearly perfect as possible. Compare this caution in buying horses with the indifference usually displayed in buying clothes. Nine times out of ten, a man takes the first thing offered. He does not examine its composition. He knows nothing about tHe quality, and Ices about the pedigree o( the and How they are made. He knows little about the man who sells tHe clothes. Is this logical? A man is in the company of His Horse for a few Hours, perhaps, a day. You are in your clothes all the time you are awake. You manege the world's affairs business strangers friends love and are married to church fact, spend of y: :r Le IN YOUR CLOTHES.

Spring Wheat Holds 4ts Own While winter wheat is a successful forte justifies any sacrifice they of Alberta which is now far re- 1 moved from settlement. The cowboys of the present day are preparing to become the ranchmen of the next de-1 cade, so far as the southern portion of this Province is concerned. They will have from 500 to cattle, ac- cording to their location and perhaps a few horses. There will be- as many ranches as in the past, and perhaps more, but they will be less extensive and tht-y will cover less ground in the aggregate. The territory which is crop, it is by no means the only grain to which the country pins its faith. Spring wheat is equally good, for, although the yield to the acre is smaller, there which always some farmers. of course, and the element of correspondingly smaller. The to I is now the Province of Alberta was for only bushels an idea of the agricultural development may be obtained. And "the ground is only to use an expression which has frequently been applied to the Canadian West. The men who are now doing things on the farms here are the advance guard of the J. E.

Probably her wants to reduce his flesh by taking a little exercise on the stump. blance of commercial organization displayed itself in the round up of the herds. It not denied that grass would grow hi abundance, fur- nishing the necessary provender for tlye live stock and that the rm-rs and streams would supply the water which was necessery for the successful man- agement of ranching operations. Tin- Test of the Dominion was apparently content to leave this vast district to the rancher, the cowboy and the broncho, and to look elsewhere for that fertility of soil without which ordinary agricultural development is impossible. A few wise pioneers broke in upon maintenance of this theory when they decided to set- tle here, to introduce the plough and the drill, the, binder and the separ- ator, and .generally to practise the farming profession as it is practised in other parts .of the continent. Their decision was not taken seriously, and various predictions were made -as to the length of time which would be required to drive them back to 'civ- ilization.' A fairly long time has elapsed, and none of the pioneers seem disposed On the other hand, each one is making use of the success of one season to bring about greater, results in the following season. All of them are glad they came and most of them are sorry that they did not come sooner.' Change in Ranching Conditions The ranches are still a big elemeni in the cpmercial life of the country but they have no longer a monopoly of attention. The larger ones are gradually breaking up, and the own ers'are preparing to retire from bus iness here to continue their activ ity on a smaller scale. The ranchman is not likely to disappear. The grea are considerations make it attractive to The season is shorter, risk whole lias given a good account of itsdf in the production of the spring variety in the past, and the latter wHl :not be driven out of the fit-Id even by the bright promise of larger returns from Alb'.-rta Red. For this season acreage oi spring wheat is about twice as large as that of the army which is to bring about a vaster extensive and intensive development and the achievements of the present will seem small in comparison with what is to come. Cameron Tract Nearly All Sold winter grade, and while that pro- gained- as the result of this transi- tion will furnish the scene for the raising of grain and other farm pro- duce. Already the ordinary agricul- tural operations are contributing heavily to the annual revenue, and their sway has begun. While it is neither easy nor safe to pre- dictions as to what will happen in the immediate future, there im: rea- sons for believing that the develop- ment which lias proceeded so far is nit a curtain-raiser for the real ac- ivity which is to follow soon. A nost auspicious start has been made, and the lines of a great grain-raising ndustry have been carefully laid. Returned a Compliment Winter wheat has been one medium through which the fertility of South- rn Alberta has bean advertised to the outside world during the past five or six years, and the results which have attended the cultivation of that cereal have warranted all the favor- able statements which have been made regarding it. The introduction of "Turkey Red" as seed grain from Kansas was responsible for a sue cessful start, and the ooil here has practically done the rest. "Alberta Red" has become the standard for winter wheat, and has given the Province an excellent reputation in the wheat markets of the world It has done more than that; it ha: furnished seed grain for use in the State of Kansas itself and the farmer down south have found that the in fluence exerted upon the grain as result of its production in Albert have vastly improved its quality an its germinating power. The develop ment is seen to be only in its infanc however, when it is realized that th whole area devoted to winter wheat i this Province is less than acre portion may not be maintained, there is fair probability that the short sea- son will continue to an important influence. The proportion of two to one does not hold, to be sure, in the southern part of the Province, and nearly all the acreage of winter wheat is to found south of the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway. But pring wheat is a big factor, and 'ill continue to be for a long time j come-. The Pride of Alberta has only to mention oats in rder to stimulate the pride of the Jbertan, and there is no doubt that he loyal son of this Province has a right to the faith which he places opportunities offorded by certain areas preclude the idea of the trade j for the present season. A favorabl The Americans brought in by the O.-W. Kerr Co. have evidently been pleased with Southern Alberta. The result of the good impressions of the excursionists has been that most of the Cameron ranch has been sold and nearly all that has been sold will be worked by actual settlers. For the last four or five weeks the company has been selling on the av- erage of b. tween and acres a week. The company this week purchased five now automobiles so that they now have nine with which to carry thoir land seekers around tlu- country Yesterday one party went by auto to Nnnton-and another to Warner. R. H. Owen and G. H. Porter, vice presidents of the company have been in the city for a few days. Last night the president, 0. W. Kerr ar- n the future of that grain here. The southern section is not entitled to L monopoly of the glory which at- aches to the raising of oats, but it nay claim its proportionate share. From the standpoint of quality, of yield acre, and of comparatire immunity from risk, their production in this country offers many advantag- es, and there is no doubt that the output will increase very rapidly in the next few years. They constitute more than half the total grain crop of Alberta for this year and incident- ally show that a mania for wheat rais- ing has not spread into this portion of the West. Barley has not taken a deep hold, but it is by no means a bad third, and the prospects for its further cultivation are at present of little importance, although there are indications of an increasing interest in them. Big Acreage Under Crop The total crop for the season of 1903 in the territory south of and in- cluding the Calgary district, all of which may be considered as Southern Alberta, is estimated at about 000 bushels. When it is remembered that in 190-3 the whole crop in what rived. The officials will remain in the country for a week looking up new tracts which they can put on the market. The company will stay with Southern Alberta if they can get the land. We trust that they will be able to continue to bring in the class of settlers that they have in the past. The company has done much in the development of our province. Let the good work continue. CHINESE HEAD TAX Ottawa.
