Leaving thejrmts, we now come to the plots of whua-t aud oats which were sown .with various quantities of seed. Thus plots are put in at the, rate of 75, 00, 105 and J20 Ihs. per acre in order to test the various 'yields. The pip is are. looking'well, but it is too early yet to say what they are going to do in the way oC yields. Peas do well in this southern coun- ;ry, and here we see a test of IS vari- eties to determine their yield and suit- ability. The ground for peas, says ilr. Fairfield, needs mnoculation, and although the results of the inocula- ion may not be quite apparent in the first crop, the succeeding crops will irove its efficacy; The plots of-Martinis wheat look us f they will give the desired, results ntl keep up the name of this early la taring variety; that miay of these works for of It will be recalled that be created not dissimilar to that'lowliead the: eastern cod vhich led to the. retirement, of the completed Hne from .Port Artlni Ion.

A en-acre plot will have ten acres con- nuotisly in alfalfa, while an acre will e plowed up and another -seeded own-each 60 per cent, ways in alfalfa. The (Irst- .year a oed he it in on -the: {ilfaLia sod, the .next year there eui ucre'put into wheat, another Mire the year after in- to wheat or coarse .grains, while the j last year 'will be coarse grain. In tlie hoed crop rotation when potatoes were raised jt-.was found that taking th-e value of the potatoes at. digging time at 50c per bushel, was cleared on ihe .crop on an. acre, ex- penses, rent- of land, .etc., included. A splendid 'yield of alfalfa and tim- othy was seen, and which 'Mr. Fair- field estimates-will go tons to the acre, while another six acres of al- falfa will yield very heavily. Mr. Fairfield thinks that one is safe in estimating the cost of raising ai falfa, including labor, ditching and water rent-till it is put into the stack, at fl.50. per ton. A man getting ?QO ;i month' should; be able to keep the water on 300 acres, and until 60 per cent, of the irrigated land in Southern Alberta is put into hay the allowed to stand a short time, then plowed again and planted with pota- toes, using ;i planter. This land should yield 500 bushels to the acre. A splendid patch of winter wheat sown on the Jst of September at, tho rate of a bushel per acre was next seen.- Leaving the "dry" farm we next go over tiie irrigated land. Here we see many "of the same experiments under different conditions, but all looking in great shape. The writer was especi- ally struck with the experiment which are being conducted, as at Lacombe, to determine the best varieties of grain to sow, the best dates for sow- ing, the value of the crop, and the value of the land after the crops are taken off. We also saw experiments in corn and roots, also different plots sown, ten days apart, to find out the. most advantageous dates to sow both 'win- ter aud spring wheat. Touching on the tests made of vari- ous methods of cultivation, of deep and shallow plowing, etc., Mr. Fair- breaks will grow and where drouth and wind shelter land prevalent. field is a staunch believer in deep plowing, but it should be done on summer fallow. The fallow, should be plowed ;to a depth of-eight inches and subsoiled for four'inches and then allowed sufficient time to pack. The best results can not be obtained by putting grain crops right.: away on deep plowing, as the newly turned up too cold. Wheat and coarse grains show a decrease in yield for the first two years, then an increase; but the land, must have time to pack. Roots again, like strong feeders, and can stand deep -plowing and show an increase right away. Mr. 'Fairfield also states that the depth at which grain should be sown to give the beat results is four and a- half inches. This may appear to some of our readers to be rather.deep, but the different experiments in various depths of: stfwiitg tried at Leihbridge, point conclusively to the fact that th-a best "yielda are got from round four inches deep. Hero we find five rows of Standard apples, and a number of trees of Dr. Stuindera' cross-breds. On'Wny' of the trees the fruit is set. Mnny other things of great spec- ific importance to the farmer 'were seen, but the space at, our disposal pro hibits our touching on them at this time. Suffice to say that a visit to th-e Lethpridge Experimental Farm would prove of rare educational value to any of our readers. The different; phases of agriculture, the results o various interesting and highly profi able experiments, useful hints in con nection with tlie every day life on th farm, would bs acquired, and a far me would go back to his own farm afte a day at 'Lethbridge, feeling that h has 'made splendid use of his time Many men are inclined to look ask ance at the work of experlmenta farms, but -right here" we can affirn that it would be greatly to the advan tage of any man engaged in any kin< of agricultural work to spend a daj or so every year in a visit to the .ex- perimental farms of the provinee. As we have said before in these col- limns, we think the governmenl should arrange excursions to the farms every, .summer, and doubtless these excursions would 'be largely tak- en advantage of.
