Our notice has been drawn, lately,
to an auction sale of purebred cattle
which has been advertised to take
place at Calgary this week, but the
most peculiar thing on the poster
i*. the fact that purchasers have only
to pay $2 per head freight to any
''railway station in the Territories
and points in British Columbia,
This sale is under the auspices of
the Territorial Cattle Breeders' Association and the posters have been
distributed by the Department of
Agriculture of British Columbia.
Now, if we have cattle here that
we tni_,lit wish  to ship away, whv
are we  taxed   ten  times as much ?
Why   this discrimination ?      It  is
time the government took   a hand
iu this matter.    Our stock breeders;
ought to be assisted in  their  workj
instead     of   being    discriminated
against  as   has   been  done in this |
case.    Our  Stockbreeders'   .Association will do well to look into this.

every cold weakens the lungs, lowers the vitality and prepares the

ofthe Gospel have taken to preaeh-

God has projected   the Welsh  revival right ir.'the midst ^f all this
