Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 4, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta life Of Interest to the Farmer THE EUAmCATION OF WKB^DS. The provincial department of agriculture is pursuing an aggroaaive policy tliia year in the nuitter of the eradication of weeds, under tba aup-crviaion of A. Mitchell, the chi^fweed iiiapoctor of the province. The forty-two or moiv weed Inspectors of the province are now busily engaged in making their inspection. Each has assigned to him a certain territory, which they cover once a year, insiiect all farmti and make reports to Ur, Mitchell. This year, more effort is belngmade to have the land cultivated In such a way us to prevent the growth of vceds, rather than to Instruct the farmers how to get rid of tho weeds otter they have grown. The follow -ingclrculur, which shows methods of cul'tlvation suggested where land is badly Infested with weeds, has been prepared by Mr. Mitchell, and is �)C-ing distributed by the inspectors throughout thp province. It is always best to burn the alub-ble on in the spring if pasible.Thla destroys iimny weeds nnd the land works belter whun thoi-c is so stub -ble. Disk as oorly � the spring as possible and harrow. This covers tho weed sends and encourages their germination. When the sicull weed plants arc seen all over tho field the land ought to bo diskod and liarraw�d again to destroy them and encourage the germination or a new crop. About th* beginning of June the land should be plowed and packed if poBsible,and if not, at least harrowed every day as it is plowed, and a crop of beardless barley sown, it is safe in Northern Alberta to sow thia barley up to the middle of .Tune. When the crop is about six inches high it wilt be found of great advantage to harrow it as thia will de -stroy any woeda which may have aproutod, and help to encourage the growth of the crop. It there is still a quantity of we�ds in tile crop when it approaches maturity, it inuy be cut as green feed before the weeds are ripe. Usually, however, it will be found that the growth of barley will choke and kill any weeds which may come up afterwards. Where fall wheat. Is grown this method of disking and harrowing at frequent intervals during the summer should be cuntinued till it is time to plow for the fall wheat. NOTE.-Itis particularly important to disk and harrow as soon as possible in the spring and also to har -row the growing grain when it is six inches high. r CO-OPERATION AMONP FAUMBKS Tho less independent a man is, the more likely is he to respond to the call for united cITort, and so when thion.

From information recently received at the Department of Education it aplJeara that in aome parta of the province a number of unacrupuloua agents are' buaily engaged in diapoa-Ing of cumpacatively uaeless school supplies to' inex(>erieoced |tnd unaua :r porting rural school truateea.

The Department aaks the assistance of tho pmsB in warning school trustees againat the eloquence and mis-r�|!prescntations of travelling agents I nnd in directing the attention of jschool o/ncials to the following facts; No agent has any authority to state that any particular article of equipnwnt must b4> placed in any of our schools. No agent has any authority to promise that any additional grant shall bo received by a achoolthrough tho purchase of his gooda. The mtiuisito equipment ia descrlh-od in the rogulationa of tho Depart -ment, a copy of which ia aent to every school board aifdto every teacher. The authorization of addHlonat equipment is announced by the Department and not by! school su|Vply firnia or their agents. Section 01 of tho School Ordinance provides that "No act. or proceeding of any board ahalt be deemed valid ur binding on any party which ia not adopted at m regular or apec-ial meeting at which a quorum'ofthe board ia present." It ahould be noted that failure to obaerve thia aec -tion may render individual truateea peraonally liable (or qblig�i1ons thua irregularly incurred. Ilefore making large purchaaea of school auppliea the board should con ault the teacher of the. achool, the maiHWtor or the departiWRt.

A. KINO, M. D. A POLITICAL MARVEL, Tho first general election in the Transvaal as a colony has ccsulted in a victory for Uet Vplk, the ^ Boer party. General Uotha will be Premier and Sir Richard Solomon will be a member of his cabinet. Sir Richard is thoroughlj- loyal to British connection, but opposes the format -ion of an anti-Boer party, lie hopess to avoid dividing the colon.'S' on racial linos. There will 1)e many who will fympathise with Sir Richard's view. A "British" party would only serve to consolidate the Boers. The main aim should Ijc to make the Transvaal prosperous, and it' British energ)- and enterprise can do this, it will go a long way towards making our new subjects contented withtheii-political condition. The spectacle of a gontleinun in arms against British rule a few short months ago and now jthe virtual ruler of a British Colony ia one to make the average foreigner gasp. But it will in every likelihood be a Bucrcssful e-xjicrimcttt. Already Oen. Botha has accepted the invitation to attend the Colonial Confer -cnce. .Sir Wilfrid Laurier, when he meets his fellow-premier, will have an opportunity of personally answering for those siionches vhich did ho much to unite tho British spirit in that hard struggle in which General Botha ji'ent down to defeat.-Cnnud-ian Magazine. literatuie.

LfTERA- The subject of a Canadion national literature is receiving more attention than usual Just now, and it isi astonishing to sec how many persons who write or spoak on it assumo an arbitrary htand, pointing out the dif -flcultios and the opportunities and prc hot ht the kias of brotherhood. Canada and the U. S. Many people in the mother-country atill beliave that Canada is an economic dependency, ao to speak, of the Uuitod States, and that Canadian prosperity is merely a result of the development of that Trust-riddon country. Theav fallacious notions are really at tho root of the idea, which has long sinoe been abandoned by every inhabitant of Canada with the eXGei>iion of Dr. GoUlwin Smith, but ia fltiil current In the United Kingdom as well as in the United Statee, that the Dominion will some day bo absorlied by the Republic, in a reinorkable "letter by Mr. .la'niies Iloaf, of 1'oronto, which appeared in last week's Public Opinion, the fict-'ion of Canada's economic dependence jon her neighbor ia most ofToctually confuted. Here are aonie of the hard tacts adduced by Mr. Roaf. By the operation of Canada's fiscal policy Uniletl States capitalists, anxious to obtain a share of the profits of t'lUir adian development, have found it neceasar.^' to build 132 manufactur -Ing establishmenta in the Dominion'. But these eatabiishmcnts got but a very amall proportion of the busi -neaa, there being no less than 14,.'iOO factories in Canada. The banking business of the Dominion is entirely independent of that of the United States, and a financial crisis in the latter country-as Mr. V,. S. Clous-ton, of the Bank of Montreal, once poiutoil out In an intorview appear -ing in a London dally-has little or no cHect on the volucs of Canadian aoeuritios. Moreover, the economic progress of Canada aiffcrs, as Mr. Koaf shows, both in kind and in do-greo from ihat of its nolghhor. Today Canada haa 94 miles of railway for every thousand poptilation, as citmparMl with 2i miles per thousand la ths case at the UaHtd Stataa.

According to Sir RoliprL Gift'en, the highest living authority on .such subjects, thcwealth of Canada is S2'40 per head, whereas that oC tho t'nilcd Stales does not excood $170 per capita. One hundi-od millions of United States money is already invested in the Dominion,and the influx of capital from thatsourcc grows rapidly in volumo year by year-a significant proof that tho tarift-wall, which fosters local industries, does not prevent capital from seeking the more I'emuncrativo and safer class of North American investments. "Every citizon in Can -udu," thus Mr. Roaf'points the moral tor the British statesman, "is worth fifteen times to British trade whot every citizen in tho United States is worth. Why should your men and money go to build up the United States, when tho same men and money in (Uinti.da would give far groutor returns to British business, and tho men would rciuain Brit ish and not become foriaigners'?"
