A Huffra- gfctte, named Clunas, went to the post office here yester- day with a card afflxod to her- self addressed to the d-eiico where Winston Church- ill, the First Lord of Ad- mirahy, is( stopping. 'She re- quested the' postal authorities to deliver her 'by express in accordance with the regula- tions of the post office.

OVERCOME BY GAS IN A WELL Sad Fate of Young Home- steader East of Coutts A very sad fatality occurred on the farm, of Mr, Sa.tter.lee, east of Coutt early this week. ISarl Brewster, a neighboring homesteader, went down in a well to make some repairs, and when about thirty feet down was ov- ercome by gas and fell tliu.remainder of the distance, some 80 feet, and lost his life. An inquest was bold by Dr. Anderson, coroner from Milk River. The unfortunate young man was about 27 years of age and came to Alberta from Princeton, Minnesota. His remains were interred in the cemetery at.

Cor the sura of At Preliminary .Meeting I 56 Shares of Stock Were Subscribed MR: GREEN IS NOT ALARMED CANADIAN WHEAT WILL GO BY PANAMA CANAL ROUTE QUITE SAFELY Shipping grain over the Panama route Is obviously causing just little bit of anxiety in the minds of certain factions, if one may "oe allow- ed to judg-e from 'the report which, it is alleged, couiea from the Depart- ment of Public Works. It is said tbe department will shortly issue a port counselling shippers to slick to the transcontinental roads, unless ilvey wjsh their grain damaged. In or- der to gert at the -root of the matter, the Herald last evening interviewed George Green, of tlie Ellison Milling Co. here, as to what damage, if any, the grain would sustain through being shipped ovor the Panama route. Mr. Green, who, the way, is not niono' in his opinion, expressed the that grain properly cured, would suffer no damage whatever if cared for properly in tile cuurse of ship- ment. Damp grain, of course, naturftl- tt'ill always come to grief, 'but if it dry no one need fear the consxi- .itiences. The routing of grain through the Panama cana! will prove inestimable benefit to Alberta and Lotlibridge will very speedily reap the benefit on -account of its close prox- mity to Vancouver. It is significant to note, said Mr. Ireen, that grain shipped from rhe Argentine to Liverpool has invariably suffered little damage by passing .hrough varied some as ligli as those which along tho anama route.

E. G. Ambrose, tbe organizer mil manager of that was present by request and his sugges-1 tions were much appreciated- He out- lined briefly their experience in find- ing a ready and profitable market for hay, which, when they organized, was apparently in no demand. By establishing uniform grades and filling all orders promptly, they were able to meet the requirements of many large consumers who had for- metly shipped much of their hay Sydney, Sept. the Uniled_across the COI1tjnent.

MEWBURN SELLS HIS THIRD AVENUE PROPERTY WILL HAVE A REAL MODEL FARM Frank Maxwell Practicing Farming on Large Scale That mixed farming, the 'universal cry of Southern Alberta, and the mot- to of the .provincial department of agricultural, also the C. P. R. depart- ment of natural resources, can be carried on successfully in the district immediately tributary to Lethbridge proven by a jaunt through some of the farms of the best farm- ers on earth as John Coggewell, of the .publicity department of the C, P. R. best farm- ers on earth are those in this district. He does not say that they a-re (better :han in other parts of the west, bin lie does5 say that they are'delivering the goods and that's what counts. In company with'Mr.'Coggswell the Herald man yesterday drove south east of the city a few miles and rus- ticated for a few hours at the irrigat- ed farm of Frank A.. Maxwell. Maxwell has only been in Alberta five years, but during that time he has reached the conclusion that for malc- .ng money, enjoying .life, and being )0ss of the job there is no place to jeat the Sunny South. To be boss of the job is of course the kernel of lis enthusiasm. The Maxwell farm is to be the acme of all that iu mixed farming. It .can. ib'e spotted 'miles off -by the number of stacks of. alfalfa and "tim- othy around the barn's. Alfalfa, horses and cattle, with "a fast nag or two hrown in, brings joy to tbe owner of that When the Herald, man was there he, dairy herd was'driven up. Milk- ng time is an important part of the day Thirty head of -well-fared lairy COWB, "with a minimum of euUfc "omprise the bunch. One of them Is lied "Old Thousand be- muse she has raised a thousand dol- ars Worth of stock in her day. An- sther is marked because she gives 32 [unrts of milk per day. She holds he record. The herd is allowed to issture on the range during the day but is fed bran and alfalfa morning and evening. As a dairy proposition they can't toe beat. iMr. Maxwell has a man In Minne- sota at the present time 'buying a car- load of high grade dairy cows, mostly Holsteins and Jerseys. These will be added to the herd, a few of the present herd culled out, and forty choice animals kept, which will b1 the standard of the-farm. While the man is in the States he will also bring back 20 head of mares. There will likely be a couple of fast poni-as among them. The owner has a weak- ness for fast nags. It adds a little more life to the to say that ent conspiracy whereby it is proposed! farm work on the Maxwell ranch to drive Ulster out of its choice andjal all irksome, however. Forty high grade cows 'will require SUFFRAGETTES ATTACK ASQUITH Dornoch, Scotland, Sept, 12. Anqiiith and Home Secretary McKenna were attacked by two suffra- Kettes, while golfing. on the Dornoch links yesterday. The women started by bar- angniug Mr. Asqulth, and when air. McKenna tried to push them away, a scuffle followed, ENGLISH DOCTOR CABLES GOVER- NOR OF NEBRASKA CURE OF DISEASE Lincoln, Neb., a hundred Nebraska veterinarians with a few from neighboring states met here yesterday and discussed the epi- demic which is killing hundreds of horses in this state and Kansas. Scores suggestions have come to Gov. Aldrich, among them this cable from a London, Knglaml, veter- inarian The epidemic was in South Af- rica a year ago, jusi as it is now ravaging Nebraska. It ran he cured anil prevented by not using grain and by feeding only alfalfa or wild hay grown in an altitude of more than feet. Tin; perm lives only in a .damp climate and ei ters tlie horses' system through the nuso." i good housing i inter if they are to be .kept a goctl dairy herd. So Mr. Maxwell will go north in a couple of weeks to inspect the model barns on the C. P. R. demonstration farm at Strathmore. He intends to build the best barn in the district to house 40 cows and 20 head of horses. Water will he placed right in front of tbe stock, and to facilitate the milking an "iron" milking man will be in- stalled which will milk 40 cows quicker than an ordinary human man. Altogether Mr. .Maxwell' will have a model farm which will be to the best in the south. will do it, he will have it so. and he is confident that there will bo plenty of other farmers around ustTvc The name of "moiici There are crops 'worth talk- ing about in the south country this year. In very many cases on the Coutts branch of the. C. P. R.; yi-elds of spring wheat are going-considerably over 30 bushels to the acie. Mr. Rudisilile, who Is farm- ing on 36-3-15, can boast very productive crop of spring wheat. From 20 acres he eraged 44 'bushels to the acre, and from a big field of 200 acres the thresher's returns were 37 bushels to the acre. The grain all graded No. and If Mr. Rudieihle was to accept the prevailing price at Warn- er for his crop he would secure over from his spring wheat alone. It certainly pays to farm in the south country. .j.

In the minds of many investors, Third avenue promises to be the chief business district of Lethbridge. The stieet has a long sweep east to' Westminster road, and is eminently fitted to, be developed into a busy main business thoroughfare. In rrection with the present sale, which was-put through by Messrs, Dowsley Mulhern, it is significant to observe that it is only recently .that-the'same firm sold tbe Methodist Church pro- petty on tbe same street.
