MARLATY I S8I ONTARIO ST, TORONTO GfiT. \ possession into crop, has preparations now under way to rip open almost tlio entire township with tho plow. Owns 20,000 Acres of It Mr. Noble now owns a total of sections of this ranch, or approximately 20,000 acres, and of this tract ho will have this year, flax; oats, ! wheat and summorfallow,' about 15,- 000 acres. This will bo in addition to : about 5000 acres more of crop on his j various other farms in southern Alberta. His chief attention this spring ' is centred on the Cameron, The I sight of such a huge tract of wild land is an eyesore to him, and ho is risking, a fortune in putting it into seed. When Mr. Noble first became interested in the Cameron, and purchased nearly half of it, and laid his plans to put it in crop, the first thing he did was to' build a graded road -14 miles from Noblol'oi'd clear across to tho Cameron. No sooner was I his road completed than if became peopled with trucks and teams and wagons of all sorts and descriptions hauling lumber and supplies to tho new ranch. $50,000 In Buildings, Etc. Mr. Noble's plan to break up 1:1.000 acres of this land this spring was a big undertaking, but he is sparing no expense. He has already invested, outside of the cost of the land, nearly $50,000 in preparing for this undertaking. The first thing he did after grading the road, which cost him about $4000, was to haul lumber to get up the requisite buildings. The transformation at the Cameron in the past few months has been wonderful. Two members of the Herald staff were guests of Mr. Noble last week in a trip over the undertaking, and to say the least, his accomplishments thus far are amazing. 1 A Little Town Just at the top of the hill overlooking tho Little Bow river, from where the ranch stretches east and north and south to the Old Man river, a regular town has sprung up. To house his machinery gang for engine repairs, Mr. Noble has built a huge machine shop. To house his grain and his horses and other slock he lias built a barn 80 feet by lyO. To house the several hundred men that will work on the ranch during the summer he has built the most up-to-date boarding houses. To house his a'ntos he has built a garage. Then there are numerous tool houses and granaries and other buildings necessary to the operation of a big ranch, not to mention the handsome bungalow of the foreman, and his office building. In addition, Mr. Noble has installed his own electric lighting plant on the place, and has four wells giving good water. Not only this, but he has provided for all contingencies in the way of water supply by damming up the coulees in the vicinity which will give him ample water (supply. An Army of Tractors This week ten of the biggest steam tractors made, hauling, ten ploughs and a drag each, in addition to two gas tractors, are working at top speed, double shifts, night and day, to rip up the 1.1,000 acres to ho seeded. Those tractors are ploughing at the. rate of 40 miles a day. To Interest the men still more In this unique undertaking Mr. Noble has arranged a system of premiums, for tho best record in ploughing for the drivers of (he tractors, and he will spend $1500 in this way. Of this 15,000 acres to ho broken up, 5000 will be seeded to flax, and 5000 will be in' summerfallow. The remainder will be in oats and wheat. An army of men will be employed during the summer and harvest time on the ranch. Mr. Noble has paid for this land all the way from $15 to $:',0 per acre. In all his farms he has now over $1,00(1,-OOP invested. The Cameron ranch is (he biggest proposition hi; has yet tackled. SUGGEST BRAND E , CKppcial to ih5 a month. Some men who could run tractors received more, and others who had little training a little less. There was a larger demand for married men now. Eliminate Mail Carriers H. J. Montgomery said that if people in the cities would go for their mail quite a number of men now carrying letters could be released for farm work. He commended the suggestion to the minister of agriculture to take up with the Dominion authorities. The question of the supply of seed grain to settlers requiring it this season was raised by F. Davis Glei-chen, who brought up the case of residents of bis constituency who held C. P. R. land, and-could not get seed because the railway company would not give the necessary guarantee required of the owner. Question of Seed Premier Stewart explaining that it was not the intention to undertake the supply of every one with seed grain, but thOBe who had been hailed out or had suffered loss of crop in some such way declared that the C. P. R. should take tho required responsibility in regard to people who lived on their land. If a large corporation refused to give security on the land, and the government would have to come to the rescue it would mean a. very heavy burden on the province. Personally he would insist on the C. P. R. bearing their responsibility the same as other owners of land, and he would not hesitate telling them so. Mr. Davis said the agents got their instructions from Montreal and they had informed him that they had no in- Double our The valuable man is the efficient man.
