There organization of vari- lousdepartments was discussed, and the question of dealing with partizan officials informally talked over, t way doubtless be taken for granted that all officials who took partin the elections aud pubticlydisplayed par- tizanship will be dealt. with as they deserve at no distant date.

The market garden on Mr. Geo. Gove's ranch, which Is ran by Mr. Fred Smith, is an example of what can be accomplished. in this enuntry by the of Irrigation... This garden ia situ- ated on apiece. of bottom lund along the about twelve mites forth of the town. The location is a beautiful one and in some respects is not aulike the bottom inod wcross the river just opposite thetown. hore Is abouit the saine cmount of land along ths river leads to the bench Tand. place, probably three-quarters of a mile from the river and up a wooded ravine there are several never foiling springs, and theve farvish water for irrigating. To look at the little stream as it trickles down the ravine you would say that there was enough wa- ter there to irrigate farm, tut it is notso, Thesoll.iga sandy loam and in the dry weather of this sumwer: it required careful distribution of the water day and night for it to suffice to irrigate fel acres and a half. But that irrigated Held isa murvel to look at in this country, All uround ia the sunburned prairie, one spot is arent abtindence of al most every kind of vegetuble that goes into every day consumption around Medicine Hat. Atthe top end of the garden are a couple of down rows of anions running-the entire. length of the Held over two hundred yarde, The growth is, good; amd the yield promises to be several hundred buxh- els Then there are rows of turnips, parsnips, beets, peas, beans, quite a nice patch ot sweet corn which 1 now in prime shape, rows of tomatoes, cn- cambers, citrdas and melons, Brussels sproute, cautiflowers, parsley, saze, summer apd winter cabbages, su two or three hig patches of early and Iy THEME was anything lacking to convin e the people of Canada that the recent Liberal victory was a popa- Jar one, it was farnished by the elec- tion of Hon, Wu, Patterson, Minister of Customs, in the riding of North Grey on Tuesday, by the laraeet ma- jority ever accorded a representative in that constituency since Qonfedera- tou, North Grey was the first.active campaign of the series of bye-clections: which follow Rensral olections, almost as a natural course, end ae the riding has been Conservative for the past nine years, there was a strong hope smong the party followers thay with a lucal man as candidate against an outsider that there was good chance of redeeming North Grey, which was lost to the Conserva- tives on Jue 23 by the election of Olark; Lib., who bus since died. Mo- Langblin, the candidate, was given credit with being a wobbler on the hool question, flitting hither and thither in bisefforts'to keep himeslf right, and Le has had at his back Messrs, Olark Wallace, Foster, Hugh John Macdonald, aud otber party leaders, but their combined eloquence was Got equal to the occasion, Laur- ier's annonacement--that-the-sehook question was practically settled must bave, in a great. measure, removed this question from the Issue in North Grey, and left the elactors free to. de- clare on the trade and other questions, Ifthe result in North Grey is to be taken eee criterion.of how subsequent bye-elections will go, then will history: repeat itneif, and the party in power at Ottawa may expect the benefic of the big bulk of the representatives re- turned at the bye-elections, , Patterson's. total majority is 413, Owen Sound, which went Conservative at the general elections by 00, gave-a BLAIR ALSO ELECTED, mer savory aod red peppers, mujority-of 133 for Patterson, late potatoes. The whole garden is in splendid shapeand free fom weeds, anid is Well worthy of trip of inspee- tion, While many Rardens in this district have parohed dry for want of water, bere, 3 this favored spot, with the judicious use /of water which na- ture generonsly, sappties, there is. an abundance of everything, infact you would think that, there war enough in this. one garden to supply whol community, Twice a week for the past two months Mr. Suith has dis- posed of a wagon load of green stuff, sind tolook at the garden you would not be able to locate just where the stuff had come from, For practical farming und gardening purposes we. say that these ten acres are worth ten thotisand:acres on the bench land, be- snoilsimerench of irrigation: On; thy: ranch there sre abont thirty head of cattle; half adozen horses, and some pigs and chickens. All around there ison abundance of fruit, at present there being great quantities of -black choke cherries. The ravine through which the spring water flows is well wooded witha growth of small trees and sbrubs, This year Mr. Gove has had erected. a comfortable. and com- medious log honse, and it is the inten tion to build a stable ind a store house for vegetables this fall. For market gardening'the spot is a trifle far from the town, but this inconyenience is more than counterbalanced by the and in this country itdoes not seem possible that we can have everything combine for our welfare. The im- provements on this place ate yet in ratton hr-sayrag that when Messrs: Goveand Smith get their location fixed up in proper shape they will have wplace equalled by yery few in this countr: : The weather thisiweek has been ary and very favorable to hay makivg. An effort is being made to have Medicine Hat created a Custom's port of entry, There was a flurry of snow at Lon- don, Ont.,on August 19, and indica- tions of a slight frost. Cattle shippers complain of the annoyance caused at tae stock yatde Idlers who gather there whenever there is shipment of wild, range stock to be loaded on the cars, here now seems to be almost an anxiety on the part of the N.

Se NORTH SIDE STOCK Y: The agitation. for the building of stock shipping yard at Medicine. Hat onthe north side of the riyer, adjacent to the water, is meeting with consid- ceived from Supt. Whyte by the sec- retary of the Slack Growers Associa- ton, would indicate that the company - willlook upon the. matter fayorably providing the yard will be an encour agement to the ranchers and there would be sufficient shipping to wai rantthe outlay. There seems to be but lictle doubt. but that -the fatter part ol en. i Erne tae ont: wha ee eae tioned by Tue News some few weeks ago, enquiries are coming in - from big ranchers living some distance from ns, The , Y, ranch, the Gordon ranch, the Canatiian Land Ranch Company at Stmr, the Jas. Pierce ranch, and anumber of othet minor concerns, nil want to come bere and make this their-sbipping point, and this week the Circle ranch, who-eon- trol the biggest band. of cattle in the country, have intimated that they would ship from here provided there was a yard built north of the river, While itis hardly to be expected that anything will be done this year, there its fulfliment. The people. of Medi- cine Hat wopld not be at all ont: of their sphtrein lending the Stock jocta ce fin-thi deavor to their establishment would mean that Medicine Hut would become the great- est stock shipping centre in the North- west, t would be quite the natural thing that the ranchers would make Htheir shipping point their place of doing bustness and procuring supplies, and thus the town would derives trade which would be-bound to. grow to Inrge proportions in a very few years, We should not be slow in reaching out for anything ofthis kind which will add another spoke toour already imareasing wheel of progress.
