That decision remains wUh the Legis- lalure which ia representative of the H may be a sectional at- titude, but the fact K there thai the people of the northern part ol the province have not yel come to view Irrigation with the same eyes as those 01 ths southern part do. Thia from 'the different conditions rrevalliog in the amount of moisture each part re- ieivcs" Hut it is liy nc means a far :cry from the Edmonton to the Letb- .tridge district. Conditions here should -.by now have become matters of com- throughout the whole province.

Under euch eUlemeat ar.d ivilli the land and cllnj te of Southorn AJberla be- declared hat this country presented Ihe greal- st economic opportunity to be found pon the laud anywhere in tho world. Methods of irrigation are three, tbe reck or border system as used In California, the furrov: or corrugation .cthod used extensively in Colorado or root crops and tbe flood system [3 most -In use iu Alberta and most adaptable to'this country.

Hays Figures Taking figures from ihe experimental ana maintained by (he company at tonalane, p. W.
