The article is one'of the best pub- licity notices that has corne out of the middle west, and will prove of par- ticular interest to the bankers of Canada as indicating the trend of thought of the trade journals. H is reproduced here in full, follows: "Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, has a most enterprising publicity bureau, it has promoted an International Dry- j Farming Congress, to lie held there I next October, and the world is invited. Particularly, however, is a warm in- vitation extended lo the enterprising fanners of the middle states of th-a U. S. A. There will be a line program on agricultural topics by high-class men, and we are led to applaud the enterprise which has taken root in Alberta. The. governors of Uie states in the U.-H. A. have been requested to send delegates, and they are responding actively. Governor IJeneen of Illinois has appointed ;17 representative farmers and bankers to go lo Alberta as delegates to this con- gress. Exploiting the possibilities of Cann-dian wheat lands to these 37 representative farmers and bankers from Illinois is, of course, only inci- dental, but when the 37 get. back homo they will exploit Canadian wheat fields to other good fanners and bank- ers, and it is reasonable to expect an exodus of 'representative fanners' from Illinois to buy and settte, or urge their sons or neighbors lo raise wheat In Alberta. As the publicity bureau says: "The Dry-Farming Congress teach- es farmers to conserve moisture by Intelligent cultivation, educates them hi soil culture nnfl seed selection and guides the Inexperienced settler In the adoption of farming methods that bring the highest attainable profits for their labor.' (ho boat farmers fvom the United Slates to Inspect C.iuada, Let them come M with tholr au-d hear a. prograni that ex- cites the imagluatiou and fires the am- iiH.inn and incidentally -many will leave their homes and aid the up- building Camumn wheat fields "But what will Illinois gain m send- ing its best class-ibf farmers as set- tltrs to Canada? good will it, do Illinois to havfj, these settlers know, the secrets of agriculture when they abandon. Illinois? "Governor Hawley-of Idaho has se- lected "twenty-seven leading farmers' to accompany, to the congress; Spokane sends its live wealthiest ranchers and largest land owners, and possibly a -dozen other governors will send delegations to get the Canadian fever and abandon their farms in the middle west. "We take off our hat to that spot on the map, Lethbridge, when it induces governcrs to send leading farmers and bankers to Canada in a program to build up Canadian farms at the ex- pense of farms in Illinois, Kansas, In- diana and Ohio, and other middle states. The Dry-Farming Congress will teach many agricultural secrets, but, most of all, It will impress the 'Call of Canada' on the leading farm- ers? and hankers, and ranchers and richest land owners of the wheat- growing states of the U. S. A." WILL BUILD A FINE BIG BLOCK FOUR STOREY OFFICE BUILDING TO BE BUILT AT MACLEOD- LOCAL MEN INTERESTED Sept. four-storey building, fronting on both Twenty- fourth street and Third avenue, would make a-vast difference in the appear- ance of the lown. This is, one of the probabilities of the near future. In fact, practically all the arrangements have been mnite for the construction of such a block. If sufficient tenants can be secured to 'warrant the erec- tion of the building, its erection will be proceeded with delay, R. 0.
