Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 1, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Of Interest to the Fanner CANADIAN SEED GROWERS. of the*! be entitled "WoiV doite in *tic Improvement t�l Siiinlt gfnlii� �dcr 'the direction of thfl Cnfmdlnn fSoed Growers' Association." The secoiKt extract will deal with "Seed FairSf" The �third, appearing some-i|time in August, will deal with the , 'question of "Corn Breeding" vuhllo M special meeting of the Executive H10 fourth, appearing sometime l/it-Council of the Canadian Seed Grow- �>'. will discuss the matter of "t'o-. ers' Association was hc.d on July *�' Improvement," &lh, 1007 a>t .MacdonaId College, Stc. | Many Important matters were dis -Anno de Tfcllovue. Que., for the pur- cissod nt the meeting and a progtvs-po9o of transacting tho business of ,eivc P�,k-V "ns fl e held at were, the President. Dr. Jns. W.

Gig- {Association ami some of the results ault and W. L. Davidson. The seed [thieved. Commissioner Mr. G. H. Clark, and Messrs. J. C. Cote and T. G. Hay-nor of the Seed llrnnch were also present ns were also several mem -tors of the college start. The President, in welcoming the officers of the Association to Mac-donald College and to Ste. Anne, expressed the hope that tho Assoc -iuiion and the College would co-op -orate as far as possible in the fu  tore in promoting the interests of good seed. The re|>ort of the Secretary as pre-nerrted 'l>efore this meeting wns n comprehensive treatise dealing with the wiork in each of the six districts into which the Dominion hns for convenience been divided. Inference was niade to the general iiwakening of thought and practice along lite lines which tho "Associat -ion sought ta encourage and the various agencies which were responsible for this were designated. During the year the principles of plant improvement have been applied under the direction of the Associat -ion, in connection with practically all cultivated crops and In all provinces. The results which have been realized from the system ami which have licen given -In the report in question arc noteworthy. While this report will be published in bulletin form, yet the matter contained there in was considered worthy of publication by the press. It was therefore resolved thdl extrncts dealing with certain portions of the report, which are of special Interest, 1* offered the public through the press from time to time during the .summer. Tho 1st i An*. � regularly applied, is readily answered in the affirmative by noting the average difference, say for one week. tatween two bundles of eovs. one of which has been given protestion and the other hns not. The value of protection is probably most marked in the case of the dairy herd, which, if she expends her nervous energy in fighting flies will not be able to nsc it in making milk. Decnusc the beef anl  mnl is not so high strung and so sensitive, the benefits of protecting it against flies are perhaps not so strongly marked: it is also true that we cannot judge' of the loss of flesh in a l>eef beast, due to tho torments of flies, as we can of the decreased milk-flow of a dairy cow from, the oama oatiM, ifowettji, the beef animal lays on flesh as a result of the food it eats, Just ns the dairy cow givcsmilk as � roBult of the same action, and it is �v reasonable conclusion that what will lessen the milk-flow In one case, will also lessen the amount of flesh laid on In the other. A spray recommended by the Nor'west farmer Is: One gallon of fish oil; one pint of coal oil awl two ounces of crude carbolic acid, mixed in this amount or In this proportion as rexfuirod. It can be handily applied from a little pa'il by the use of a small white-wash brush, nndthough requiring more time than spraying. It needs only to be repeated two or three times n week. THE USES OF CONCRETE. Concrete as a substitute for timber in building is making rapid and gratifying progress. The material Is taing put to new uses front day to day. The latest advance noted Is a patented concrete door of which It Is said' "The body of the door is nuvde of finely woven wire mesh suited in slae and strength to the purpose for which the door is to be used. Over this the concrete is poured, and the door when moulded ami dried can lw smoothed off like wood. The doors can be staiined any color." The door is not on the market yet and it will doubtless be a long time, before It or any other similar door will be in sufficient suppl,v to meet the demand for it. Another innovation is,the concrete shingle; about it we again quote: "These shingles are only a little heavier than slate, and not much more expensive than those of the best wood. They are practically in-ilewtruetiblo, and in the end much cheaper than shingles of any oilier material,. They may be made in a variety of designs, arc reinfbreedwith metal skeletons, which terminate In loops at the edges for nailing to tho roof. The shingles become more durable wi'th exposure to the weather These examples serve to indicate the vast variety of uses this wonderful material may be put to in nd dition to the other and heavier uses "with which all are familiar. The situation Is added evidence nt the ability of mother earth to re spond to every demand made upon her to supply the needs of her chil -dred. As one necessary resource fails either new sources of supply nrv found or a substitute is evolved; this has stood in evidence of our good mother's beneficence ever since she has had human children to cai\> for, and there seems to he little dan ger of exhausting her goodness or her wealth.-Farm, Stock and Home MINARD'S LINIMBMT COLDS. Ac CURES LA MM EH TltE IDOL OF- Villi NATION. (Montreal Witness.) "Iinurior. tho idol of the nation," is the appropriate heading timler which tlie 'Canada' described the unUnto happenings of the, welcome of Canada's chief minister,-*wu had almost said, lior uncrowned king. Certainly, the welcome given >to Sir Wilfrid, in continuity, in tuimbersand in enthusiasm, is ui\U|Uo in the history of Canada so tar, ami is not likely to Ik- soon iVlK>ivt*d, unless i" his person. Enthusiasm, Hko � wln.l. nay, like n tornado, has swept thru crowd after crowd, nil the way from Que-liee 4o Montivnl and Ottawa: there have l�oen triumphant urchos. gorgeous lights and bunting, bunds and syrens and crowds in thousands. No nmn so far in this country hns got so near to the hearts of the people ns has Wilfrid l.aurior, and H would not lie easy to find a parallel elsewhere. Sir John Muexlonalil. our greatest figure in tho |ms*. wns the Idol rather of n |mrty than of u nation. Gladstone was wcll-lielovcd. but ho was finely hated too; I,mil Heuconsfiokl, after tho llerlin t'on-gress\ came home with 'IVaee with Honor,' setting one half of the English people dolirous v ith Joy and the other half wild with rage or scorn; but nobody hates Sir Wilfrid, no one liegrudges him his groat Kuropeutx triumph. Even those who profes�mosA to distrust and dislike his policy and some of his colleagues, assure us that for Sir Wllcrid perscmnlly they hove the higlvest uduvirntlon. This is naturally accounted for by his innate courtesy and the spirit of conciliation thnt has dominated his policy where the two races are concerned and which has overflowed, ns* It won>. Into the field of |H>titics. Add to this that Sir Wilfrid is easily the most knightly figure upon the stage of oti life to-day ami his universal popularity is easily accounted for. So, as the Presse' expresses it, it is a country not a iwrty which ex-presies t'lio most cordial and themost enthusiastic of welcomes to the chief of the state.
