Aunt Lucy Favorsham remarked at fre
quent intervals, and Lillian's mother ac
quiesced. They had, however, some com

spoken admiration.
"Lillian never comes to sit with us,"
they said one to another. "If we go to

Winnipeg Correspondence of the Ne

To few people is it known that Salt
Lake City, in Utah, is not the only ter
ritory in full and undisputed possession
of the Mormons. Yet such is the caae.
1 have just returned from a visit to
Alberta, where I found a big colony of
the Latter Day Saints firmly established
in these Northern lands. The colony in a
unique and interesting one. Some time
ago a couple of hundred Mormons simply
"trekked" away from Salt Lake City into
the Northern wilderness, and after
marching TOO miles came to their present
location in Alberta and settled. They
soon had quite a nourishing little town.
Ttady named the place Cardston. First
they commenced to cut down the white
firs, and, with women and children press
ed into service, proceeded to erect sub
stantial dwelling houses, shops, stores, a.
blacksmith ship, a grist mill and saw
It has several unique characteristics
which are original in the extreme. New
"York and other large cities have tfuir
rich people, who, after spending a winter
of hard work in the city, leave it at the
beginning of summer for the giorie3 of
the summer resorts; but there is no
record of the population of an entire city
deserting their homes at the beginning
of March and returning In October. T/hig
is just what the 8,000 Mormons of Cards
ton do.
It is a curious custom, but as soon as
the time arrives for the planting of crops
the whole population move out in various
directions, and, taking- up their summer
residences far apart, begin industriously
the pursuit of fanning. When their
crops are safely housed and they have
g-athered in the gleanings, their sociable
nature asserts itself and they again take*
up their residence in the city, where they
settle down for the winter. A.s the stories
of the prosperity of the new Mormon set
tlement have traveled abroad, others ot
their kind have arrived from Salt I^ake
City and established new towns close at
hand, until at present the colony consists
of live to\vr>p, with the principal one,
Cardston, as the capital of the entire
community. Here are the names of the
towns, with the number of inhabitants:
Mountain View, 380; Etna, 390; Leavit, 200,
and the little hamlet ot Colles, which
boasts of only 25 souls. Polygamy has
been entirely abolished, the men build
ins homes and providing for the women
wh^m they married previous to the anti
polygamy laws of Utah. The colonists
are very industrious and thrifty, and
they are going to work with a will to
make a success of their district. The
surroundings would lead one to believe
that they dri/am of a second Salt Lake
City in Canada. The foundation is well
laid and great developments must follow.
In conversation with one of them he
said. "This is the best country our peo
ple ever possessed. We are determined
to improve it, and its progress cannot De
retarded. We like the laws of Canada,
and are well treated by the people."
The Mormons have taken a contract
from the irrigation company to excavate
and construct a portion of the canal, and
in adding to a cash subsidy are taking
a land grant which has already been se
lected, amounting to 18,000 acres in two
reserves of aboujt &.000 acres each.
As to the fitness of these people to be
come agriculturists and as to the pos
sibilities that await them there is and
can only be one conclusion. They are
farmers and pioneers, or rather, pioneers
and farmers, and pursue farming on
scientific principles. It is no haphazard
work with them, and all that is neces
sary to demonstrate this, is to visit Card
ston. Here is a district which for ye^irs
remained unoccupied and was given over
entirely to cattle ranches, efforts on
the part of those who attempted it prov

a wedding dress is needed."
He was incredulous.

years. For the first time the tones of
my voice seem to ring true to my ears.
For. the first time I feel honest with my

like, you can send me away. Hut I'm
so poor now, and—" She pretended to
look melancholy.
"It must be a dream," he murmured
still. But there is no harm In em
bracing this dream tenderly, with many

could only be successluily followed in
a few localities.
When the advance guard of the Mor
mons arrived the stake selected was far
from other settlements, and today is ov r
fifty miles from a railway. With long
hauls to market operating against them,
the colony continued to yrow until they
are prospering, with schgnls and churches
open the year round, and the land be
ing worked and crops successfully raised
The universal statement of the settlers
was that it was a choice location. Farms
on the hillsides and in the valleys "were
producing splendidly.
Having been brought under, a hißh
state of cultivation by inigation in pome
parts, the rainfall in others bein;? suffic
ient, all manner of grains, roots and
vegetables are grown, and in comperiii'.::
with those raised hi other portions or"
the district they always have beep suc
cessful. Every fanner has a large
of horses and rattle, and evidences of
prosperity seem to exist everywhi
The soil i 3 good, bi :!ipt a brown loam
with a clay subsoil: It is an open coun
try, without timber, but is we!! watered
with rivers, and the river bottoms are
filled with a light growth of po
and much of this has been destroyed by
Ores. The country is high and roiling
to the west, and many pockets are found
among the hills that have good natural
hay meadows. I saw some places on
the river bottoms where there waa suffic
ient timber to make good shelter for
stock, cut into the banks alcove like,
and well wooded.
To the east the country is more un
dulating and nit so hilly. The soil shows
better on the surface.
It is conceded at Oardston that ad
jacent to and near the foothills small
grains can be successfully grown, both
south and west, but north and east irri
gation is required. The grass is of an ex
cellent quality, very nutritious ami in
variety and produces fat rapidly. The
cattle and horses, are still at large, and
I saw hundreds in good condition that
have had no feed a<; yet but what they
found themselves. This hay cures on the
ground, and is rarely frozen before ma
turity, but cures by nature and affurds
excellent winter pasture.
There is a cheese factory at Cardston,
and it has been profitably conducted.
There are also a cheese factory and
creamery at Etna. At Card-ton there is
a small gristmill, and about twenty
miles distant in the timber the settlers
own a small sawmill. There are at Cartls
ton two large department stores carrying
heavy stocks. They each did a business
last year of between $50,000 and $T
There are also two large implement ware
houses. These people raised about a
100.000 bushel of grain in IS9B. Th.re
is a large public school in Cardston, na
tional in character and graduated, em
ploying three teachers, with an average
attendance of 150 pupils. There are also
public schools established at Mountain
View, Etna and Leavit, which have a
large average attendance of pupils.
