The new preaittent is a firm believer in 1 itie prsaident are to be congratulated on the choice made for chief officer. The fftorm wasn't so bad after all, jUBit one of the little things to remind us that Heaven isn't in Aiberta Tne spirit of optimism prevails. The Herald has not heard one farmer who has not accepted the reverse philosophically and who is not hopeful of saving his crop. Gornolius Hiebert, M.P.F., says an exchange, has purchased a cushion tired bugfry. He has evidently found the political road hard to travel on tbe^old style tires. It is said that leader Borden intends RtrengtheninR his party by choosing men like Premier Roblin and Premier McBride for lieutenants. Why leave out that great statesman leader Robertson pf Albertn? Jos. T. Clark's letters in Toronto Saturday Night about Western Canada are far and away the best that have appeared in any-newspaper. He caueht the western spirit and brooth-cd it in every line he wrote. He has dished up more common sense in his tfMVei writings than any other Journalist we know of. Come again Mr. Clark. We can always afford to have visits from optimists liice your self. Raymond, and the A. R. A I. mixed train to be greater agricultural centres than Lcthbridge or Macleod, and so' devoted hfs letters to the agricultural greatness of these former districts to the exclusion of the latter. While tn this city however, the wield-er of superlatives complained that he had no odjectives left that could des crilN> the niagnificRnoc of the Lcth bridge crops as he had seen thorn. Asrhaps that is why he left them alone. But to make matters worse from tl� standpoint of this district, the Oeiiartnient of the Interior was work ed by this metropolis-dodging jour-naVist to use his orticles for n government pamphlet. And behold there appears a twenty-four pago |>amphiit on 1907 Winter Wheat dn Southern Al bert.i without any mention whatever uf the most important district of all. Oi� cour.se the Department did not intent ioiio I ly put the slight on this district but it should e.\crcise greater cnne in the choice of writers and materials in the making up of its immigration literature. The daily papers of Calgary are having a lively scrap over their respective merits as newspapers and ad >-ertising medium. To an outsider the most notable feature of the controversy is the inconsistency of the whole bunch. For instance the Daily News in its editorial Snap Shots on Sept. 16, has this lititic stab at the Daily Herald: "^.-cording to our esteemed evening contemporary the shears is away ahead of paying telegraph tolls." In another column of the same issue. Sept. 10th, it has the following article, taken word for word from the Lethbridge Herald of lost week, Sept. 12th. Kotice the place and date of the supposed telegraphic dispatch. AVRRAGED 58 BUSHELS "Magrath, Sept. 15.-The farmers around Magrath have evidently decided to make their farms do ometbing. Land that two years ago yielded about four bushels to the acre because of poor cultivation, is this year yielding from thirty to sixty bushels to the ocre of No. 1 Albi>rta Red. And there are some other farms that are ne-putett ev province, was so daring that it lingered until eurly in May-a most unprcceflcnted thinK. Then the months of June, .luly and August, usually a gnent ripening |k?-riod, weits linusunl on r.':count of (hi>ir coolness and too frequent riiiny spells. Under such exco|rtional cotulj tions the crops had a very hard tiiiu-to ripen-in fact many of Ihoni did not riiwn and consequently nhc cml.v frosts nipfjed them and the fiirmor has suiTercHl. lint the weutlvr has Xxan topsy turvy all over llio land. Down in Ontario thore is only half a crop, due to drought. Conditions in that province ait; explninc^l \iy the.npcrs from acro.ss the border tell us of a drought in some sections flooded lands in others, and /ro.st in others. So the Allwrta farmer can be cheered by the gloomy news from other parts of the continent-and this is a case where gloomy itows may cheer. He can still say "Alberta is good enough for me ' beoau.sc it is evident that no other spot on the western hemisphere is any Ijottor. We must have our little "u|is and downs" but when the knocker and grumbler is buried, and forgotten this pro%'incc will be raising the banner grain of the world. If we had ideal conditions every year wo \^iuld grow careless and Alberta would be Itetler without pcopyo at all than a population of careless folks.' Nothing makes a strong vigorous ivople like a few vicissitudes. This .season ought, to teach tlie lesson that a man is a fool to farm any place, and deiiend sol|>ly upon grains for, his revenue. The mi.xcd farmer is on top of the heap and is entitled to his place because he knew enough not to depend upon one thing for his income. He was ready for any emergency. If the fro.vt nipped his grain he had his entitle, his sheep, hogs and his poultry* to fall back upon. Tliat is the wise way to farm. sys.tcm owned and operated by she province for the licnont of the jieople. Mr. Cushing states that 500 miles of trunk lino will be completed before winter .sots in. Probably not this year, hut cortninly next year. Coleman ill t,he Crow's Xesl will \yc able to secure con. nort'ioii with Wlnniin'g. for it is certain that the trio of provini'os will \i�irk 'together to give the western (vople an unc-xcelled long distance eoniH'i'tion.

Owing to the stivnuous life of the [last summer in this distriot occasioned by the tremendous rush of de-velopmonl your correspondent's silence rnust not be taken to mean "nothing doing" di>wn this way. Too much has been doing to find the necessary time hut these In.st lew days have given an opportunity of letting the Herald i-eaders know what is going on in Gra.'^sy Lake. Grassy Ltvke townsitc has l^n surveyed and is now on the market. iKX-n sold already and negotiations ai-o on concerning the sale of a num. ber of blocks. No wonder Billy Sal-Quite a numlior of the liest lots have vage is wearing the smile that won't come olT From indications of the pa.st two weeks inhabitants of this burg are thinking of claiming the title to a "cattle shipping centre." A few weeks ago 18 cars were shipped east and this wt*'k another 20 cars were shipped by Jlr. Slansell. Several of the smaller ranchers have been making shipments too. Pat Burns So Co. have put in a set ot largo scuk'.�> for their shipments and the C.P.H. have made a number of inipruvements in tive stock yards which will considerably Jacilitate shipping. Uecognizing t'ae importance of O^-as .sy liuke the tMMl. has now surveyed their yards, sitation grounds', and two new sidings. The steel for thoBe sidings is now piled up near the track ready for iieing laid. When these arj compieted this town will have thn-o sidings, freight sheds and a station which :wilj tjcar comparison with'any along this line. Since the tovn.s'itc has boon placed on the market a numlwr, of sfieculat-ors and business men have been iuves tignting the prosi>eets down this way S|�eciinens of clay have been examined liy comf)elent brick makers and l>ronounced lirst d.iss. So all that remains t.o lie done now is to get the equipment noces.snry to start business curly in the spring. The plowing outfits on the C.l'.R. fire guards have made this place their centre and alraady Mr. Fitzgeral(tl has been renewing the friendships of former .years when as a broncho bus^ter he uso't to pay calis on his friend Mr. .Salvage. Our Grassy Lake contractor, Mr. .lob I.lewclyn a few wctks ago erected one of the largest corrals along the ri\er for Mr. MansuU. For early rising and h.ird\ work Grassy Lake will back Jobey against all comors .iny odds. Mr. English has now the restaurant going in full swing and already has given much reljief to some of the providers of meals and bod.s whose resourcec have lioen ta.\od to the utmost to accummodute the numbers who hiivo tven going and coming through here all summer. .\ numlior of American capitalist's have secured the coal rights on one of the prospects near town. These rights cijvor some 2,500 acres and alixsady coni|H�tent men have been investigating the prosi)ccts for immediate shipment and also what ox|>ensd the iieccs.saiy filnnt would be. Coal has )ioim mined heU.' for the immediate wants of the neighborhood all summer so that locators of homes or indu.s'tries need not (e^r the fuel ques tion for the coming winter. Our Dakota farmers Messrs. Ell anil Schmidt have left for tlie south to take in I ho threshing .toason until December... These gentlemen are the ones to make a district go as tliey have broken up a considerable tract of land and aix- coutrting on a \ng crop next year. When through thi�sh-ing "down south " Mr. Ed will bring his threshing machine to Ckrassy Lake and r.?ckons that it v ill be a perinan ent feature an this district. The .s.:*ond coal mine which is on the town site has been looked ovt-r by a number of those interested but things have lieen kept quiet, regarding thcthe ojWining. The coal is of first class quality and should command a good market. Since the piano has left town the music loving public are somewhat downcast. However, Miss Joslyn's tlie .sitore already testify to his ability to do things well. Tlie new night operator has arrived and Mr. Galgcr is able to have his evwnings off. The traffic at, this point has been so cxcc.s.sive that nec-e.ssit.v compelled the CP. II. to give their much e.'iteomed agent some iv-liof. Three or four miles north of town is a hill of sand and enquiries have proven that it is suitable for the manufacture of coarsv> glasses.
