"Oh, somo i-f them . are pretty bud," he replied, �but the worst 1 ever struck was In a fairly good sized place. Tho hotel was so bad that the proprietor and his wlfo always went out to n restaurant, to have their meals." The Department of Agriculture should never issue a crop report unless il, is absolutefy complete, lot every district In tho province. We understand tho department * policy Is to have a corresp >t� le it in every township and these correspondents prepare reports and send them to Edmonton, where they are conv piled and made into a district re port. It can bo oaslly understood that the absenco of reports from one or two districts might make a big difference in the acreage and estl muted yield. Even in the case of an incomplete report it should not be printed without a notice being pub lished alongside of It that the report Is incomplete and does not cover the entire district. The beet remedy, to our mind, is the abolition of the township cor respondent altogether and the employment of a fully qualified man to cover the district and tabulate the statlrtics. Necessarily the man would have to lie paid but rt would be money well spent. These reports arc sent all over tho United States, am| from them Intending settlers gather information that may either induce them to come hero and live or decide not to come because the report Is not cheerful enough. Take this last report, in the hand of a man in Dakota.

The Hoard of Trado, "ih� body -which took the matter up with Mr. Finlay on behalf of the IUit lethbridge suits me better. Our future, to my mind, is too und to be greater than Medicine Hat.
