President of the Lethbridge Board of the Lethbridgeidistrict might very.-well take a leaf out of the book of the manufacturer of Kar mu- nitions and clothing and equipment down enst. Those coiieorns arc milk- ing big profits through condi- tions but'they am''not dispensing these all in dividend distributions. A very Brest proportion of Iho proms iiro' bolng devoted to extensions nml improvements of plant and buildings, so that after-war conditions cun be met fairly. Our farmers will not lose sight of Hie fact that there will be a big slump in grain prices even before ilie lir.a! en'liug'Of the war, if the Russian wheat that lias been stored for two seasons past can get out. and certainly grain prices will fall heavily soon after the conclusion of the war. On the other band, live-stock sup-, plies are having heavy inroads made an them now. Cold storage supplies of meats are being drawn on to an extent never known before, and it IB evident that calves ami breeding stock are beine sacrificed even now. both in Canada and the United States. Our northern Alberta farmers unfortunately sendin.c in cows and breeding stock just mnv lor sale, and these are going to till? packbrs. If 'they would only hold them a lit- tle 'while longer, so as to let our sou- thern farmers not their wheat crops attended to. and then send their breeding stuff down to Lethbridse for sals it 'would find a ready market. Our farmers will not lose the moral of tills tale, which is. that they should be some of their grain profits into live stock to be fed on the roughages anil hay that are now available. There is a fine sight to be viewed from any point on the road just south of Coaldale just now. Though the country there exhibits all the features of the" Lethbridge irrigated district, in that it is practically flat, with but a seutle slope, yet at that point no less than 500 huge stacks of alfalfa and timothy may he 'seen, interspers- ed with fields of cur. grain and root crops. ALBERTA FARMERS'SELLING TOO MANY BREED CATTLE is a shame the vvay some larm- ers are disposing of breed cattle." said A. Layzell, a well known auction- eer of Calgary, in discussing the pres- ent tendeucy of many farmers to take advantage of the high prices by sell- ing many of their cows and heifers which should he kept on the farm for breeding purposes. "In the past 10 days I have sold, about worth of young cows and heifers for beef." Mr. Layzell continued. ''These animals, and gen- erally they are the best of the breed cattle because the .fattest and in the best shape, are coming to the market in large numbers. They ace killed by small butchers as a rule, anil sold to the public as beef. Many also-go to the large packing -houses. "It is my- opinion that something ought to he done to prevent it: es- pecially in this province, where there is so much Teed and often not many cattle to teed to on '.the farms. There is no: law to prevent the sale ot Btich cattle, 1 suppose, but there should bo so amicli agitation against It that H will end. In my own sales I got plen- ty of such 1 hate to see them go every time, but 1 can't buy iiien: myself, and couldn't stop Iho practice if'l wanted to even at my own sales. Unt every time 1 see u butcher taking one of those young heifers or older lireedii'iir female cattle 1 fool lllio he should be punished, lint il Is not his fault either, It is the fault of the fur- aser who disposes of Iho cattle. "If the farmers were hard up and had had failures 1 would say nothing in opposition to tills traffic, because the farmer has to raise his money from some source; but the farmers are well-to-do now. most of them, and the selllna off of the 'lireed' entile just because the price is good is a shame. "There is no province in the Domin- ion that has the wealth ot teed that this province has, and that is all the more reason why this traffic s.'joum be stopped. 1 think the newspapers should take this matur up and give It much publicity, and in that way it would lie largely stopped, 1 be- lieve."
