''I think the irrigated in Ihe Coaldalc and Magrath districts aro wonderful, and I- do not hesitate to say that every, acre In- Southern Alberta for which there Is water should be'irrigated. 11 would make this a .wonderful country, and while. 1 like .the north, this would be .a very attractlVs country to new- settlers with the assurance that Irrigation would give." This is Mr. Smeltzer's Brat visit to Southern Alberta, although lie was in Mojitana over 30 years ago before he went to Clover Bar, which is one of tho finest farming districts in the Edmonton area. Ho homcsteadcd at Clover Bar and has lived there erer since. The crops in the north this year a.re uniformly good Ihe hay crop Is excellent. There are worlds ot feed in tho north Ibis year.
