Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 4, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Of Interest to the Farmer Till.; ERADICATION OF WENDS. Tlio provincial department nf agriculture is pursuing an aggroaslve policy this yonr In the matter of the eradication of woods, under tho supervision o( A. Mitchell, tho chlefweod inspector of tho province. Tho forty-two or more wood Inspectors of tho province are now busily engaged In making their inspection. teach ha� assigned to him, a certain territory, which they cover once n year, inspect all furmti ami make reports to Mr. MIL-hell. This year more effort is bolngmade to have tho land cultivated In such a way iih to prevent the growth of weeds, rather than to Instruct the farmers how to get riil of tho weeds after they have grown. The follow -ingcircuhir, which shows methods of cultivation suggested where land is badly infested with weeds, has been prepared l>y Mr. Mitchell, and is 1k�-ing distributed by the inspectors throughout the province. ft is always best to burn the stubble oil In (ho spring if possible.This destroys many weeds and the land works holier when there is no siub -ble. Disk as early in the spring as possible and harrow. This covers the weed seeds anil encourages their germination. When tho small weed plants are seen all over the field tho land ought In be disked and harrowed again to destroy them and encourage tho germination of a new crop. About th* licginning of .June the land should Im plowed and packed if possible,and if not, at least harrowed every day as It is plowed, and a crop of beardless barley sown. It is safe in Xor- | thern Alberta to sow thin barley up ' to the middle of Juno. When tho crop is about six Inches high it will bo found of great ad van-; lago to harrow it as this will dc - j stroy any weeds which may have' sprouted, and help to encourage the 1 growth of tho crop. 1 If there is still a quantity of weed*  in tlio crop when it approaches maturity,it may bo cut as green feed IWoro tho weecls are ripe. Usually, however, It will bo found that the growth of barley will choke and kill any weeds which may come up afterwards. Where fall wheat in grown this method of disking and harrowing at frequent intervals during the summer should be continued till it is tiiiK) to plow for the fail wheat.

From information recently received nt tho Department of Education it np|iears that in some parts of the province a number of unscrupulous agents are busily engaged in disposing of comparatively useless school supplies to inexperienced find unsus , porting rural school trustees. The agent calls on the members of tho board separately, represents his goods ns being authorized by the Department, states that the addition of this particular article to the equip  ment of the school will bring a considerably Increased grant, and only too often succeeds in securing the signatures of tho members of the board to a promissory note for sev- it is his independence that has sb'oral times the value of the goods, long kept him in the single furrow.

Take ns a specific Instance the fruit growers of tho Niagara Peninsula. A few years ago they wore all shipping thoir products independently of ono another; now many of them together ship as ono man. Their peaches audgrap-es and other fruits go out in car lots, instead of in lots of a fow crates or packages. They are largely independent of the commission nvor-chnnts; they fun handle thoir pro -duns with much less fear of loss, and they are able to get just about all that they nro entitled to from the railways.

The requisite equipment is described in the regulations of the Depart -ment, n copy of which is sent to every school board and to every teacher. The authorization of additional equipment is announced by the Department and not by school supply firms or thoir agonts. Section til of the School Ordin  anco provides that "No act or proceeding of any board shall bo deemed valid or binding on any party which iu not adopted at a regular or special mooting at which a quorum ofthe board is present." It should ho noted that failure to observe this sec  tlon may render Individual trustees personally liable for obligations thus irrogutarly incurred.

Many iwople in the mother-count ry still beliave that Canada is an economic dependency, so to speak, of the I'niled States, and that Canadian prosperity is merely a result of the development of that Trust-ridden country'- These fallacious notions are really at tho root of the idea, which has long since been abandoned by every inhabitant of Canada with tho exception of Dr. Ooldwin Smith, but is still current in the Pnltod Kingdom as well as in the I'nited States, that the Dominion will some day l-c absorbed by the Itcpiihrir. In a remarkable "letter by Mr. J antes ltnaf. of Toronto, which appeared in last week's Public Opinion, the lift -ion of Canada's economic dependence on her neighbor is most effectually confuted. Here are some of the hard facta adduced by Mr. Hoaf. By the operation of Canada's fiscal policy United Stales capitalists, anxious to obtain a sham of the profits of Canadian development, have found it noceasary to build lii'i mamifiu-tur -lug establishments in the Dominion' Hut these establishments get but a very small proportion of the busl -ness. there being no less than 1-l.SOO factories in Canada. The banking business of the Dominion is entirely Independent of that of the I'nited States, ami a financial crisis in the latter country-as Mr. K. S. Clous-ton, of the Uonk of Montreal, once pointed out in nn interview appear -iug in a London daily-has little or no cllect on the values of Canudinn securities. Moreover, the economic progress of Canada sifters, as Mr. Hoaf shuns, both in kind and in degree from that of i(s neighbor. Today Canada has 8J miles of railway for every thousand population, as An Easter Treat that will make you feel tha awakening of Spring in life and- vijror is a bottle of Lethbridge beer.

The yearly percentage of g nin by immigration is ;l per cent, in tin* case of the Dominion, nnd only 1 > per cent, in the ense of its giant i on-petiior, which is now being swamped by the "human drainage" of Kiisiern and Southern Kill-ope. whereas iuuiiigiNii ion into Canada consists 01 t he ver> liest material for tilt I Ml) ImiMiiig to he found in (il-i'nl lll'ltaiu, the Western Stales and the Agrieult urn I districts of Western Kurnpe. According to Sir Kobert (.idon, the highest living authority on such subjects, lln-wealth of Canada is $'J'lO per head, whereas thai of the I'nited States does not exceed *170 per capita. One htindrvid millions of I'niled States money is already invested in the Dominion,ami Hie influx of capital from thntsource grows rapidly in volume year by year-a significant proof that tho tariff-wall, which fosters local industries, does not prevent capital from seeking Ihe more remunerative und safer class of North American investments. "Rvory citizen in Can -ada," thus Mr. Hoaf'points the moral for tho ilrilish states-man, "is worth fifteen times to llritish trade what every citizen in the United Stales Is worth. Why should your men and money go to build up the I'nited Stales, when the same men and money in Canada would give far greater returns to British busi- ness, and lhe men would remain Brit compared with miles per thousand !ish and nut become foreigners?"
