The HICK HARDWARE. CO. LOCAL AQENTS tion-ioi Alberta gnd 'iiagkatchewan, the records of the dieterologieal sur-vey show gularity and dependibility which makes sjich streams perennially valuable. , ill a, good water supply one fall in the winter are great' benefits ant! where these conditions are found snmnier precipitation is not so great a necessity. In California with a pre-cipitatifon of only six inches wheat has been grown owing to the thorough soaking of the ground in the fall. But even where the precipitation is sufficient in all ordinary years fbr .agricultural purposes the artificial application of water may be of great benefit, and in humid ooun-^ tries irrigation is practised to some' e.vtent with the result of increasing the size and quality of the yields. That a district makes provision for a supply of water for irrigation purposes is no detriment to the' dia.'riot as many seem to think but ft her an evidence of foresight and (�n'.er-prise.

For fuel supply wood may not be so important in districts such as this with a good coal supply, but oven if such is the case, large quantities of wood are required to timber the mines. It has been estimated by the Geological Survey Department that the quantity of coal on the eastern slope of the Bocky Mottntains is 22X billion tons. , The quantity of wood required to mine this coal is 4.5 billion feet of mining props, the ])roduct of nine million acres for sixty years. Of course while the pre^jervation of forest growth on the watersheds is helpful to the water supply it will not absolutely prevent floods. Hot weather among the^ snows and gla- their number is being added to. cause floods over which the forest Railway and industrial enterprises ^ i,,g influence, are developing and for the energy to j the proper management of the carry them on, resort must be had: forests so as to preserve their bene-to water in the form of steam or ^ flcj,,! influence the following things are necessary: " (1) Protection against fire.

In order to have precipitation the atmosphere must be overcharged with moisture. But precipitation, may be induced in air which has almost reached the point trol by fire rangers, especially along the line between the open countiy and the forest. Plouged fire guards ailong the railway lines, and at all other specially dangerous points. This is already provided for but not adequately. (2D The confining of settlemeirt oV'saturation by contact with some ! ^the^ fcrti^le valleys,^^and keeping obstruction or by a lowering of the " ' temperature. In both ways the forest may exert an influence. On high mountain slopes their obstructive effect is probably not greatly appar-! ^ preserve the forest cover.

In level country the influence of a considerable area of forest is more marked, as there its cooling obstructive effects come'into play unniinglcd with any other agency.:; Various observations have bee'n made in Europe-in regard to the influence'of forests on rainfall. Sonie of them conclusive, .some of thetii li,'aving the matter very much in doubt;-. JOrte of,the mQSt,;striki'i^g s^-ies of "observations that seemed ti> � prove conclusively the influence of the forest on rainfall was that madjc at Liiit/.el ill Germany some ' years a.l'o.

During 'that time the steadily progressive in rainfall at this station reached twenty-two per cent, at the end of the period. Ten per cent, might be taken as the probable average increase of rainfall due to the forest. The forests have a greater influence in affecting the runoff. They prevent the rapid ihelting of the snow in under tree' gro"wth of the steep hills und mountain slopes where ati'icul-ture , is ari impossibility. (3) The cutting of the tiiuber so ure of the forest or anything but the immediate supply necessary. Careful cutting with reference to the future and the water supply may be a little more troublesome than the present methods, but it will save the far gffeater trouble resulting from the destruction of tho forests and their regulntivo "effect. (4) 'The reforestation by seeding or planting of �the burned or denuded areas where natural reproduction is not accomplishing the result. . Tho area denuded of forest by the axe or fire is large and steadily increasing and no adequate measures have yet been taken to repair the dpniage. It takes many year.s to grow a tree. Observations, made last year in the Rocky Mountains, show that the Douglas fir requires ninety years to reach a diameter of ten inches, the spruce 75 years and the lodgepole or blackpine 65 years. The only wiy to grow a tree is to start with the seed. The work of reforestation should ii'it br di'layed. CUTTING FALL WHEAT AT BURDETT Buidett, Aug. 6.^r. Johnston is cutting his fall wheal.
