The reproduction above- shows the design of tbe  flag.   The body is white, the edge red; in the upper  - left hand corner is, the Union Jack, and in the Jower  right band corner the Prince of Wales' Coat of Arms.  The flag is made in two sizes, 4 feet "6 inches by  9 feet for small cities, towns and villages, and 7 feet  by 13 feet 6 inches for cities of over JO.OQO population.*  Canada bas been divided into canvassing, districts  -by the Victory Loan Organization.   Each city forms .  one district.   Other districts have been determined >  according to population.  Each of these canvassing districts has been allotted  a certain amount in Victory Bonds to sell. .To win  the Prince's Flag, therefore, a district has to sell its  allotment.   That vt the one and simple condition.  Anticipating that many districts will buy far  bejwnd their allotmer.'t, the organization decided tbat  for each twenty-five per cent, excess of the quota one  Prince of Wales* Crest be awarded. Thus the workers  in a district doubling its quota will be the proud winners of four^mall crests for their Honour Flag. These  crea'a will be sewa to the flag.

The "allotment for eacb district bas been carefully,  considered, and is based on a conservative estimate  of tbe purchasing power of tbe district.  Vour district can sell its allotment and thus win tbe  Prince's Flag, provided each person does bis or ber  share.  You will gladly do your part and encourage, your  neighbour to do bis.

S.  Stevens bad suHcrcd a paralytic  stroke at Skeena City.  According to thc report, Mr.  Stevens was stricken early last  week. Mrs. Stevens and his son,  Milt, were .summoned from Vancouver and immediately left for  the north to the bedside of the hc-  Joved f������������������!her and husband. A later  report stated that Mr. Stevens had  died in the stroke, but������������������this report  we are happy to say was without  foundation. Word was received  Wednesday that he had recovered  consciousness and only onc side  of the face was seriously affected.  He will be brought to Vancouver,  where it is hoped hc will make full  recovery.  No man ever resided in Enderby*  who had more warm friends than  Mr. Stevens. When manager of  the Okanagan Saw Mills, his uniform kindness and thoughtful consideration of others made him the  friend of all.  Two years ago Mr. Stevens went  north to manage the Skeena City  mill, where thc output was almost  entirely white pine. When peace  came and the demand for airplane  pine dropped off, cutting at thc mill  was stopped. Recently orders were  received to resume operations, and  it is thought his collapse came under the pressure of hard work in  getting ready to start.

One farmer at Coaldale in tho  J^thbrtdge Irrigation District, th'.s  year harvested no less than 54 tons  pf alfalfa hay on twenty acres of  Irrigated land at the first cutting.  TW������������������' hay he sold at the price of $30  per ton ln the stack, realizing $81 to  tbt acre. The second crop on this land  Was almost. If not quite, as good, and  there. 1* every probability that a  tWr4 crop will he harvested. It i3  *afe to say that the returns from  fbese twenty acres of land this year  ���������������������������Will be between $160 and $170 to the  #cre.  The case quoted tn the previous  paragraph is not an isolated one.  , Other farmers in the same district  liava crops equally as good, though  |W> doubt such yields are somewhat  Kbove the average. Most of tho other farmers have, however, much  larger, fields. Altogether there are  -about fifteen, thousand acres in alfalfa to the Lethbridge Irrigation  pistrict this year. Two cultfngs had  |>een made on most of the fields before the end of August. The average  yield from the two cuttings for thc  ���������������������������whole of the fifteen thousand acres  maB ���������������������������eir<o*ver, tbreip ;1feriBi.to tjie; acre.  Wid it Is Safe to-"say; that withvthe  thlrdkjjcuttlng.the average yield.will  |>e at: least four tons to the aero. The  fanners In this district will; therefore, get a return this seaJson from  tihet.r alfalfa crops alone of nearly  |wo million dollars.  | -������������������But the Lethbridge District is not  Uie.only part of Southern Alberta  jwhere alfalfa can be grown.    It Is  ��������������������������� |>eiiig grown equally successfully in  ��������������������������� irarlous parta of the large irrigation  V j^lgok'operated by the Canadian Pa  cific Railway east of .Calgary. Both  in the Eastern and Western sections  ^of���������������������������the^blocte^farmers^are^growing  alfalfa and obta'ning yields of four  tons of alfalfa to the acre and more  during the season.  One man north of Brooks. Alberta,  has the whole of his 160 acre farm.  with the exception of. a small place  for his buildings, in alfalfa. Last  year he cleared between $14,00.0 and  $16,000 from this crop..;: This year  his returns will probably bo greater  because if anything, his crop is larger, and the price of alfalfa hay Is  ruling higher.  The growth or alfalfa '.n Southern  Alberta Is certain to have ah' enormous influence In the development  of the Province. It has been proved  that it will grow anywhere throughout the irrigated area. There are  still thousands of acres of land suitable for the successful growth of  this croi> available, but settlement  is proceeding very rapidly and gaining impetus every year. The Irrigation systems at present ln operation  are designed to supply water to approximately 9-10,000 acres of land.  This year about 150,000 acres or Irrigated land , were producing crops.  These crops were mostly grain,  wheat, oats, barley and flax���������������������������a large  number of the settlers being new,  ancl as' yet their land is not in shape  for growing alfalfa, which requ'res  that tho sod be thoroughly disintegrated for best results.        f!0  ^ ,  But when th0 development reaches  tho state of. development that has  boon reached in the Lethbridge district, in which 15.000 acres out of  100,0.00 acres of irrigable land are  growing alfalfa, there will be an  enormous production of this crop.  On this basis about 141,000 acres out  of the 040,000 acres'would be producing alfalfa. Taking an average yield  of three tons to tho acre,Which is  one ton less than tho average thi.s  year, it means that 423.000 tons of  alfalfa hay, worth at present prjcen  $14,690,000, wouW be grown, ������������������  -=tJ3xperts=tel4-������������������s,-however,4h������������������t-w���������������������������������������������  should develop our Irrigated f������������������rmn  on a ten year rotation plan with one-  half of the land In alfalfa each y*������������������r.  With the 940,000 acres developed \n  this manner, there would be upwardi  of 450,000 acres of alfalfa grown on  this irrigated land. Averaging the  yield of three tons to the acre wo  should have a crop, of J.350,000 ton*  of hay. This production wonl4  make Alberta one of the greatest  winter cattle feeding countries on  the continent.  The ptory to not finished, however.  The' fine crops that have beta*  grown on the irrigated land through"  out Southern Alberta have ������������������t!mul-  ated tbe desire of thousands of other  farmers already settled in this part  of the West to have irrigation for  their lands so that they can grow  alfalfa too. They are now organic  ing Into irrigation districts for the  purpose of securing water for their  land. With the organization of these  districts and the establishment of  irrigation systems. It '.s estimated  that there will be approximately an*  otiier half million acres of land  brought under irrigation. With half  oi these lands g.owing alfn.fa.. an-  oihei- 750,000 tons ot hay would be  grown in" Southern Alberta, bringing  the total to over two m'.llion tons a  year.  Alfalfa bas already made fortunes  for many farmers; on Irrigated land  in Southern Alberta, But Its cultivation Is still in its infancy. Beforfl  many, ycars have elapsed with the  quantity of this crop grown increased manifold, many more fortunes  will have bcen made. Its influence  on the future prosperity of Southern  Alberta and of'the West generally  cannot be estimated at the present  time, but it will assurcdlv be very  great.  . r*^*rr**9rBrQr*r*B������������������rr_*rB*rBr*!^rs*s*rmm^r^  |t fijtes |wf: * moment to get in tawcji;  a wor<| or two aw*} the  cjoukti* removed.
