Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LEI HBBIDGE DXttt IlEBALD SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1918 OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER  It has ociMiiTPd to ;lio the membership of iho r.V.A.. gcu-urally speakinK. lias no; fully com-preliendod the iiiuioricuKO of ii proper observancp of U.F.A. Sunday, many locals negiectiiiK to tnko any ot'ficial stops towards the vibservanoc of this (lay in Uio jiinmmr that, ii was intend-  ctl to be observfii. In iliis coniiecHon we w-lsh to call ilifi attention of the rsBder to Iho faci that the adopting o� the policy of C".F A Sunday may be considered the first otiicial act of our good rresdeni, II. W. Wood. Delegates to tliL- Calgary convention, at which ho was elected, will remember that the observance of this day wa.i tabled, and at the closlr.g hours ot the convention at the instance of Mr. Wood, the resolution was taken from the table and adopted, and while the locals may have made it a practise in one way or another to observe U. P. A. Sunday, as stated above, many locals have not yet availed themselves of the inspiration and educational value that comes to it by reason of its proper observance. The movement however has  made steady prog^ress, and is now general through the prairie provinces. The great fundamental principles underlying the U.F.A. in its functions of tbe building of a great province and a great empire, cannot be entirely disassociated with the duty that rests upon all citizens and particularly Christian citizens of whatsoever denomination in the building of "The Kingdom" on Eirtb, for which the :Maater taucht us In almost the first paragraph of His Prayer to Pray. Read the first half of the objects of U'.F.A. as presented In our constitu-tion. The writer has the honor, and we consider it an honor, of being the medium by which this clause became a part of the constltuticm. In the printed forms it was not correctly stated, but the proper wording as adopted by the convention is as follows: "The objects of the association shall be the fosterUig and encourage-meat of co-operatlre effort to the end: 1. That the moral, Intellectual and financial status of the farmer be improved thereby; 2. That the rural home may iw-ceive more ot the necessities,, com- ^forta and conveniences, of modem times, and rural life enriched and im-proT�d thereby; . 3. That the business of agriculture tnay receive the proper recognition that its importance justifies in provincial and national affairs; 4.

PEAS AND OATS AS A CROP > FOR SILAGE ? : :> lExperimental Farm Note) The problem of securing satisfactory succulent feed for cattle in winter has been keenly telt by stockmen in Alberta. In central Alberta the growing ot corn for silage is not feasible tor the reason that only in fifty per cent of the years ' in which com has been grown has the crop reached sufficient volume to be considered profitable. The best substitute for com Is peas and oats, - seeded at the rate of one acre. In, fact, the experience with these two fodders as grown under central Alberta conditions would indicate, that peas and oats are superior for silage purposes to corn, and since this crop is dependable every �year, and the yield satisfactory, U is safe to predict that It wl!1 occupy a premier position among silage crops for this section of the west. Peas and oats, or oats alone, can be sown for silage purposes as soon as the crop intended for threshing has been seeded, and the crop will be ready for putting into the silo when the oats are in the late milk or early dough stage, before the crop' intended for threshing Is ready .for the binder. The green bundles are at once run through the cutting box and cut as fine as possible, going into the silo absolutely .green. There should be at least three active men in a silo twelve feet in diameter, men who will keep on the move continually in order to insure that the sil-! age be thoroughly tramped, particu- pastor in the community of the U.F. I of the organization and dealing there- '> with. In the cities too it should be ' ? observed. No live minister can afford to allojwU.F.A. Sunday to pass without discussing the problems, tho influence, the opportunities, the responsibility, or some ot the other phases of the work that the F.P.A. is destined to handle, or if failing to do so, the results that are liable to follow. Possibly never in the history of the world did so much depend upon the actioliB of men generally as at the present time, but upon us in ibis new country where things are still in the formative state, where we ai^ unhampered by the ruts and prejudices that are^accompanying conditions in older communities, much more depends. We need the product of careful thought and sound judgment. We need to be made to feel the consciousness of our opportunities and responsibility, and above all we need to be impressed with the necessity of sound concerted action, and the necessity tor acting collectively and any student of our present, conditions and situations and responsibilities will find ample opportunity to prepare an address suitable for the observance of U.F.A. Sunday. Surely when the churches and ministry read the above objects of our organization and realize that it means the building of "The Kingdom." that they will not be slow to throw the full weight at their influence in line and will do everything in their power to assist because they, thenuselves, are primarily Interested in the same object. My dear reader, have you made up your mind where you are going to attend U.F.A. Sunday? Has your local!, , , , ^ done anything towards its observance?' l^''^^ as the centre will. is filled. Increases. The amount ot oxygen cenialnlng in the silage wIJI depend on the .'amount of tramping, and the amount 01 oxygen will* b the determining factor in the keepin. qualities of tho silBgc. Alter the silo has been first, (illed it will settle and inny be filled,again 'in tho course oC five or six da.vs. In I his way another ten or fiffeeii tons may be nccom modated and h silo so tilled, thirty feet high and twelve foet in diameter, will hold oiKhty to ninety tons, according to the anjount of niols ture in tho crop at tho time it is cut. Some bulky fodder, such as hay or oat straw, Is u.snally fed 'In conjunction with slhiKe, as well as tho usual grain ration. When so ted, cows on ftill flow of milk will con-sumo around forty pounds per day. Even though the sihigB freezes around the edges of the slio it will come out in flakes, and the ueezing docs not appear to afteqt injuriously its feeding value. Experinienta which have included the whole dairy herd at the Ijacombo experimental station liavo been carried on during the past two years to determine the relative feeding veJue of this silage as compared with tbe same feed cured in the ordinary way in the shock as green teed. Both yoArs the results have been very decided in favor of ensiling the crop.

This anpeal arose out ot an lowod in CMrink the lortdor-a saving ot tweaity pAr cent, action brought by A. N. Mdntyro &. Co. against K, ?, Law. both of car mangay, to recover a commission of 1880 for tho sale of Law's farm. The suit was tried before Mr. .lustico Ives at Lethbrldge last fall, when the plaintiff was awarded Judgment for the full amoufit of the claim and costs. .From this decision Law appealed. ;, ; .,, The ohlof grounds urged :by Law In support ot the appeal were, first, that the listing of tho lands yfrHh Mc-Intyro, was not sufficientlyexplicit, the words "west of the 4th meridian in the province of Alberta," having been om'ltted, and secondly, that t)io Bale made by Mclntyre did aol; coflBc ply with the roQUlrementa ot tho listing. The argument was, heard at Calgary last week and Judgment waa' reserved until yesterday, when, as before stated. Law's appeal was dii-missed with costs. A. M. Sinclair, of Lougheed, Bennett, McLaws & , Co., Calgary, was counsel for the appellant,. Law, and A. B. Hogg, of Hogg & Jamlesod, Letjibrldgo, was counsel tor the ro-spondenta, A.
