As wheat can be grown at $7.50 per acre with wages to the men doing their own work besides, and as year in and year out the yield and price are twenty bushels at 50 cents, the profits are $4.50 per acre. three As live stock doubles every years and grows like wheat while the farmer is sleeping, we expect that this will always be one of the leading feat- urea of the agricultural industry: As the Pacific coast or warm winds melt the snow in Alberta almost aa rapidly as it falls, the herds of live stock live out on the open prairie the entire year through and are in good condi- tion every spring. The native grasses are highly nutritious and retain their qualities the whole winter through, Reaping Record aences of advancement., The first bushel of wheat was shtrpe4 in 1882, in fact the first shipment from Mani- merely as a sample, was made n 1877. In 1904 there were under all crops, excepting hay, 1,575,000 acres the western provinces," producing 17,250,350 bushels of wbeat 18,250,640 ushels of oats, and 2,350,420 bushels df barley, realizing a total :of about $18500.000 for the farmers. . In Manitoba there were grown in 1904 41,600,000 bushels of wheat and other farm products in proportion. .The first mile of railway was built. In the country in 1880, and to-day there ire over 6,000 miles of road in opera- "i, and furth extensions are going thead as+fas t men gad money can build them. There are two trnk lines in the country, the C. P.+B .and the Canadian Northern, with the Grand Trunk commencing its trans- continental line. In addition to these trunk lines, all systems are extending branches to all sections where there are settlements to patronize them. The grain elevator development la another assurance of the-wonderful expansion of the country, the one- fourth of the whole area, or about 95 {)00.000 acres of the country traversed by railways being vow fairly supplied by elevators. In all there are 1.015 of them in the country with a combin- ed capacity of 27,683,000 bushels and eected at a cost of over $55,000,000. In addition to these, elevators at the hea@ of the lakes have storage capae. ity of I8.200.000. Fourteen years ago the entire storage capacity of the elevators was 7,628,000 bushels, to-day it is 41,600.000 and mcreastng yearly from five to ten million bushels. What the settlement of the country will be in the vext ten years may weIl be imagined from the fact that last year the immigration was over 133,000 souls. There are those who believe the graln.poducing area of the country must be limiied, hut results tell a Crop st Battleford. making winter feed aa inexpensive as summer pasturage. As $2,885,516 worth of live Stock' was marketed in that country in six months of last year an idea may be formed of the proportions it may be led to attain when the couatry be- come, fully settled up. Dairying is the third leadng busi- ness of the Northwest farmer, and may, like the others be developed while the farmer is sleeping. It is found that on account of the cost of farm help, and tO avert the exlens9 of erecting suitable buildings for the purpose, the co-operative system is decidedly the best. Under it the en- tire man'agement is in the hands of the government under expert opera- tlves, though control of sales, etc., tests with the patrons. The farmers lmply deliver their milk or cream, usually the latter, at the dairies, re- ceive monthly advances, and bal- ances of proceeds of sales at the close of the year. The schools are free ad nondenoml- nationalnatlonal. There is no tax for attendance, the government defrays the greater part of the cost of sup- port of a highly certificated staff of teachers. There are schools In all country districts where there are a dozen pupils to attend them and the tax is rarely more than $4 a year on every quarter section. As each prov- lnceAlberta and Saskatchewan--un- der the new provincial autonomy will receive at the start from the Federal government $1,100,000 a year, there will be but very inconsiderable taxa- tion for any and all-provincial pur- poses; Fnel Is the bugbear of many of the prairie countries.

The approach- ing completion of the White River Di- vision of the Iron Mountain Route, between Carthage, Me., and Newport, Ark., marks a new stage in the de- velopment of a strangely neglected portion of the Great Southwest. A thorough inspection of the new line, recently made by representatives nf the Passenger Department indi- cates that through trains+will be run- ning within sixty days. Mr, H. C, Townsend. General Passenger & Tick- et Agent, who has long been  firn believer in the possibilities o| the White River Country, In speaking of the new road, said: "The new line is a more important link in the west- ern railroad systems than might up-' ])ear at first glance It opens up a direct routs between the Northwest nnd the Southeast. and what thts means to the people of both sections will be understood by all railroa@ me  and students of Industrial and agri- cultural conditions. It will mea new and better markets for each, and consequently, a greater share of gen- eral pTosperity. "Investors, tourists and home seek- ers have long had their eye en hl sectton, and now that the way Is open for travel, the drawing power of the, section Is becomtng daily more appar- ent. Tbe lead and zinc fields in par- tlcular along the White River Railway are coming to the front, and develop- ing rich deposits which promise to rival the older section at the wester terminus cf the White River Line. "One Of the finest agricultural set'n- tries west of the Mississippi is opened np and heavy immigration JusUfles the enterprise of the promters.

"It is fair to say that a+ panorama , of uneXcllcd beauty--river scenery ;i ++ verdure clad mountains; stony preci- pices and quaint little towns nest]e in the val)ey--awaits the newcomer to the beautiful Whtte River region. "The romantic feat-res of the ew line are naturally the ones to attract the most genera) attention, hut, as state the agricultural (fruit raising In particular) and mineral posstbtl|-, ties of thin new region are remark- able, ,'The road itself Is one of the mod- ern wonders of engineering; built to last for all time. with eighty.five pound rail, rock ballast, and a grade in curvature admitting, .of speed, safety and comfort."

Why are we, as a people, regarded a an invincible power of impregnable strength? And why do we compel the admira- tion of the whole world--at times grudgingly iven, but given, anyhow7 It is because we are free and tnde- : endent in the truest meaning of the ords.
