No wonder Edmonton boasts of a big Increase in population when one family is increased by four in a day D. H. Elton Is president of the Al btrta Press Association. The Aaso elation did well to choose one who is such a clever writer, eloquent speaker, and.general good fellow. The new president is a firm believer in -n most unprecedented thing.

Itut the wentlier has been topsy turvy all over the land. Down in Ontario there Is only half a crop, due to drought. Conditions in that province are explained by these interviews published in a recent Issue of the Toronto News; Charles Newbold, of St. Catherines said about half n crop is all we shall have. W. II.

I^tnd 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 new of No. 1 Alberta Bed. And there are some other farms that an; re. puted even better. .Mr. Wyman pur chased a section from the (>.

In what part of the world but Alberta is this possible? "Ijind in the Magrath and other districts of Southern Alberta which yielded poor crops four years ago on account of poor cultivation is now under good farming yielding from thirty to sixty bushels' to the aero of Alberta Bed." When Admiral Don truins his guns on the enemy he should be cautious about the recoil. this Is a case where gloomy news \ muy cheer. He can still say "Alber-i ta is good enough for me" because j K is evident that no other spot on the western hemisphere is any hot ler.} We must have our little "ups and downs" but when the knocker and grumbler is buried and forgotten this province will be raising the banner grain of the world, if we had ideal conditions every year we v�iuld grow careless and Albertn would be hotter without people nt all thon a population of careless folks. Nothing make* a strong vigorous ivople like a few vicissitudes. GRASSEY LAKE.

The CP,II. gang have enlivened things considerably during the past few days. During their stay the demand on tho local supply of tobacco was large enough to gladden the heart of ony tobacco king and bring dismay to the friends of the utiU-to-bocco league. The school o|vned nt the beginning of the month under the control of Miss iloslyn. This young lady hails from Manitoba and already is winning golden opinions from scholars and friends alike.
