In Manitoba, of courso, n former Conservative goverumant is Investigated. Tho Inquiry got so close to tho Hon. Robert that it becauiu ob- noxious. There was a danger that his public career might be shattered. Than wo find tho man who sanctioned judicial investigations nt Ottawa and Keglna. denouncing a Judicial inquiry, and iutinintfug Hint judges in accept- ing payment for such services ware simply accepting "graft." It is Quite clear that Hon. Mr. Rogers' "view- point is largely affected by the ox that is being gored. Alberta's premier is called a sphinx by some of His critics. Well, there is one thing certain, and that is that when ho speaks.he knows what he is talking about. For instance, in Win- nipeg he described Southern Alberta's i-rop as the best in the means the Dominion. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR A dearth of news from all fronts marked the war yesterday, but there was no intimation that the steady .allied pressure is being abated. In 'fact, what news there was confirmed the opinion expressed yesterday, that the allies, r.Gisr cu Jive- offensive every- where, are carrying the battle to the enemy, thrusting vigorously here and there as the situation may develop, and thus keeping .the Teutons from making any disposition of forces look- ing to the assumption of the offensive on any front Twti bits of news were highly en- couraging. The steady pressure of the Italians in their difficult task to take Trieste seems a step nearer if the re-j port that 'the advance has reached aionfalcone, 13 miles from the objec- tive, where the water supply has been cut. With the taking. of Trieste, Iialiaii efforts are likely to be directed more particularly against the Aus- trians on the north where greater pro- gress is possible. j In the Dobrudja front the reports; indicate further Rumanian successes.! The object of the Bulgar drive on this I front vas considered to be the im-; portant bridgehead at Carnavoda. raanian -efforts have wrecked-this hope! of the Teuton allies and it is doubtful whether the Bulgar effort will now consist oE more than a defensive movement ail along the line to prevent Russ-Rumanian troops from invading Bulgaria from the north. _ n making his attack :ipon the judges, Mr. Rogers evidently aimed to turn the attention of the public away from the serious charges against himself which a judge was inquiring into. It's a pity that we couldn't have the farmers as our guests in January. However, it would be foolish to bring them here and not be able to house them properly. Lethbridge is de- veloping rapidly aiid it will not bo long until we can give the U. F. A. convention the very best of accommo- dation. In giving the names of some ot the notables in public life produced by New Brunswick we overlooked the greatest of them all. Bonar Law. Bri- tish Colonial Secretary, and up until the Var 'leader of the Unionist party in- England. New Brunswick has nothing of which to be ashamed, ex- cept possibly the government that controls its affairs. Tbe original estimate of the cost of the Agricultural College buildings in Manitoba as submitted to Ron. Robt. Rogers, then provincial minister ]Qft public was completed the buildings cost about Now figure how much the new parliament buildings at Ottawa will cost over the estimate. Mr. Rog- ers is supervising their construction A WONDERFUL CHANGE IN CONDITIONS Bank clearings hear evidence of the marked improvement in business con- ditions in this city. The increase is remarkable. and prove conclusively tliat Dathbridge and Southern Alberta have "come bacS." _ -.The subscriptions to the war loan tell a Uke_story. ..When the first loan offered very few subscriptions offered here.. In less than a year find the community subscribing to a new loan to the extent of a quarter of a-million dollars. proves that our people have money to spare. Con- sidering the ago, it is a wonderful record of develop- nfent and no community in Canada, under iikfe cir- cumstances, can point to "as striking a record. It ,is a good oinen and should all.be thankful and MR. ROGER3-AND" THE JUDGES .Hon. Robert Rogers abhors the idea acting on commissions. It Is {a. form of graft, he claims, and we might be fed 'to believe the allegation since so great an- authority makes the declaration, To read the Hon, Robert's criticism cf judges one was not ac- quainted "with all the circumstances might conclude that that gentleman had .throughout his entire career refrained from malting such appointments. In this connection it not be for- gotten ,that Sir. Rogers was a member of- a government .that appointed the Chief Justice of Ontario and a mem- ber of the Supreme Court of Canada to conduct the inquiry into the ei- ploits of John Wesley Allison, late honorary colonel and friend of the Minister of MIHtla. Judges were quite warranted m acting Bioners-m that case "Mrr-Rogers never raised the slightest objection, prbb ably because it was another ox 'that was being gored, Coming nearer home we' find three Judicial investigations appointed in Saskatchewan. On whose prompting? The Hon. Robert Rogers The. Liberal government of Saskatchewan offered by a parliamentary inquiry tut: this was absolutely refused; by the Conservatives There must be a Ju- InVestigaiion, and a judicial 1 vestijation consequently" was granted. Mr. Rogers did not protest then; It in known on the other hand that he urged the Saskatchewan Conserva- tives to 'refuse any inquiry "by other than Judges.

The Delight of Children The self-developed, inner-flavor of New Post Toasties has a unique attraction for the even like them dry from the package for their lunches. A box of Toasties provides "eats" that will delight the 'children.' New Post Toasties are usually served with cream or good milk, in which form Ihe flavor is more pro- nounced and the flakes more delicious. These New Post Toasties do not "chaff" or crumble in the package they don't mush down-when the milk or cream is conimon defects of old-fashioned "corn Then, too, notice the tiny "bubbles" on the flakes, produced by the quick, intense heat of a new patented process of making which imparts delightful crispness and a substantial body to the flakes.

The threshing in this vicinity is now in full swing with many rigs at work to- day. F. J. Henderson has been threshing bis own grain and had a.yield of 40 bushels per acre and the grade is No. 1. His entire crop will average 30 bushels. Ingoldsby and Downing commenced threshing on Friday and they report the yield to be around 30 bushels on the graiu they threshed on A. Adair's farm, Peterson Bros, and Baer commenced thresh in E: on Friday they report EXCEED EXPECTATIONS IN RETLAW DISTRICT 'llctlaw, Sept. cutting of wheat and oats was finished by Sept. ICth, and the cutting of flux will be completed this week or the early part of next. Only a sniall urea of the and IICIS Ilcl Uliu Uil 111 til iiuuiceb i--- and on tbe summer-fallow a'spring plowed ground and it turned out 35 bushels per acre. On a small piece uf spring plowing E. A. Everitt ported during the next two or three weeks. The quality is very good, and for the most part the wheat will go No. 1 Northern. The wheat, has a nice color, and, is weighing around 64 pounds to .the bushel. NEW DAYTON New Dayton, Sept. wheat I comparatively all cut in. the New', Dayton district and the ideal weather, for the past two weeks baa put the first cutting in excellent shape for threshing, which will be.in full swing by the last of this week. Ralph Atkins, north ot town, -was the first to thresh and he reports his fall plowing wheat averages 40 bushels and his stubbled wheat goes 32 bush- els. 35 bushels per acre on their poorest much heavier yield will he realized. Today E. B. Loncks, E. W. Bromley, M. R. Kirsch, A. C. Russell, Mrs. 13: Ancion, anil several others will com- mence operation and in our next let- ,er we will be able to give some very nteresting items on the yields in this vicinity, and no doubt some of them ill he eye-openers. W: J. Carrie, north of town, has a field that he expects. will .at least yield 60 bushels per acre and judging by the stoohs he Is not overestimat- ing it, STUBBLE CROP YIELDS 25 BUSHELS AT BARONS Barons, Sept. weatherman lias been doing'his very best for har- vesting in Southern Alberta. With long, bright, calm, sunny Alberta days the threshermen have gotten away to a good start and are rapidly turning the wheat into a marketable commodity. From reports that have come to hand the' grain is yielding from 20 to 30 per cent better than was expected. A report conies that a portion of John Lane's crop went over 50 bushels to tbe acre. McK. Welsh, whose farm adjoins the town, lias just completed threshing. His summerfal-[ low went 42 bushels to the acre and stubble crop '25. This seems to he a j pretty fair average of what most of the crop will do around here this year. Some say that iu this country with summerfallowing you have to wait two years to get a crop. But if a man can raise 40 bushels on summerfallow and 25 the next year on stubble he can I afford to let the land remain1 idle1 for a year and still have a yearly aver- age of over 20 bushels to the acre. Where on earth is the country that will duplicate that with land as cheap as it is here? onta was .u'nent at the time of the recent frost, probably about 10 per cent, and of each of the grains uncut! only a part was damaged, as at least j half it was ripe. j The flax seems to have escaped ser-; ious frost damage. It has since rip- ened well and tho bolls are well filled and the seeds plump, although u little off color. The cutting of this grain is now progressing favorably. A larger percentage of tho cutivattul area than usual has this year been brought under siimmerfallow. )Tlie ground has been well worked and kept free from weeds and is in excellent shape for the receipt of the seed next spring. Most of the Oirnsliing machines be- gan operations this week, although a few will not start up until Monday, the 25th. The wheat yields so far have ex- ceeded all expectations, and have run all the way from 25 to 48 bushels per acre, W. C. Andrews had a -IS busliel wheat yield off from 50 acres of sum- inerfallow -and the rest of his wheat crop went 35 bushels. Leonard Har- per had an average yield of 28 bushels on ISO acres of stubbled ground. J. II. Dutfiehl threshed his wheat on had ;-U bushels an acre. No oat yields havo as yet been re- ported. GOOD YIELDS AT MACLEOD Macleod, Sept. 2ii. The crops around Macleod and district arc look- ing exceptionally good. Threshing is in full swing and the average result for tho whole district will be from 25 to bushels an aero. A large por- tion of Hit! whuat will also go No. 1. No damage by frost to speak of, with tho exception of some in tho hills and a little south, which will go from No. 2 to No. W. Day has completed threshing which will go 31 or 32 bush- els per acre. Mr. Brownlee is now threshing and expect in places -Ifi or oven 50 bushels an acre, There is no shortage of labor here. PINCHER CREEK Pincher Creek, Sept. wea- ther all the past week has buuu very favorable for harvesting. Considerable tiM'Cshing is expected will be done this week. So far the reports of; any thresh- ing of special yields have not come in. Gardeners are very busy now gather- ing In all garden produce and a gen- eral preparing for winter has com- menced. COWLEY Cowley, Sept. threshing has been done here yet, a .number of rigs will bo in full blast within a week, the entire crop is going to be better than has appeared, probable, the. cost of Setting it is going to be a great deal less than last .year. The weather has been very favorable during tho, past week.

A very, small percentage of the wheat remains to be cut. D. McMillan, south-east of Tatier, reports having four binders at 'work on his section, but owing to his gram being so heavy he is not able to cut .more than 4 or S feet at a rour.d. and feels sure his yield will be above .the average of the district. Nelson Feldt, miles east, has finished his thresh- ing, and is, greatly pleased with the yield he got .from his whole' sec- tion amounting to ove'r 40 bushels per, acre..
