Dear Sir: Answerltig your wire re representations from this organization, beg to advise you that we think that, for the present, the case might be met by a brief statement of the situation as it is presented to us by our members here. In the first place, ws wish to state that nothing that has happened.for a long time.has aroused such a storm ot protest .freim our members : throdghout Alberta as.Jbe sugges-1 tlon given in newspaper Teports ' emnating from Ottawi that the  farmers-be paid an initial or min-. imum price of ^1.75 for their wheat ; this faill> Whilst in the statement ; given ont by .the goveritmetii the I word "mlMimum price" is not used. I there is a very wide spread belief 'that this is what Is really intended by the suggestion of fixing the initial price at $1,75. There has been a combination of circumstances which have led the farmers very naturally to view with exceeding distrust and i opposition anysuggestion to^ force ' down the price of wheat at tl�e present time below its, actual value on the world's markets. , Even if the farmer gets last year's I'V)rice,' or-the present United States ! minimufli, for his, wheat crop this I year, there will be very few farm- AV1]^G^, Thrift Indepi^ndence - all these ire the outcome of the same impulse and attain the same objective-PROSPERITY.

Cost of Living Committee of the House of Commons, mentioning the price of wheat as the main factor,, in the present high cost of living, has lead the.'farmei;s]to believe that there was effort, im the part tof the government to make the people put all -the. blame on the farm, er. , Farmers here are -convinced that the suggestion of $1.75 mentioned in seemingly inspired newspaper reports was an attempt to force the price of the present crop down below its actual value on the world's markets. Why there should be such any snch attempt on the part of the government or any organization with the national interest at heart, this organization cannot understand*, Farmers have already sacrificed more than any other producer Jjy the fixing of the price of wheat at the level arbitrarily maintained during the war. Considering the larger portion.of Canada's crop is exported, it seems to this organization that it is in the interest of the farmers, especially in view of the exceedingly short crop this year, that our wheat be sold for th^ best price it will bring on the world's markets. In conclusion, this organization, speaking on behalf of the farmers of this province, wishes to stats very emphatically that In our view any attempt to fix the price of^wheat on a basis less than the present price fixed by the United States government cannot be justified from any point of view. Trusting that.this view will be seriously considered by your board, Yours very trulv, (Sgd.) H. Higginbotham, Provincial Secreta^ FERGUS FARMERS SELL BULL FOR $12,000 CASH .. FERGUS.-About two years ago Messrs. Peter and George Gerrle, farmers In Pfichol township, -hear Fergus, attended a sale of thoroughbred Shorthorn cattle held by Mr. Watt, near Salem, Ont., and purcliaaed a young bull from his celebrated stock, paying $1,COO for It. Since then they took it to a cattle show in Chicago, where it received first prize In its class, and they were offered f 10,000 of the ground. 'Two or more of these sacks of eggs indy ')ie deposited by the same female in a-aeason. Such clusters of eggs are most frequently met with on roadsides, pasture fields and stubble lands. Pastures and road allowances are the favorite breeding places in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but the insects will lays eggs in any soil that has not been ploughed since the spring, though not to any extent in land cultivated-since that time. ^ Experiments have shown that the young hoppers are unable to force their way through the soil whire deep ploughing has been practiced. Therefore, all ploughing done between now and May 1st, next year, should be not less than six inches deep, the furrows to be well turned so that the eggs will bb covered deeply. Disking or cultivating is npt recommended when the land can be ploughed though' both these methods are better than nothing. Co, not bum roadways in autumn, rath-eiL allow the grass to remain, until the young hoppers hatch next spring w^en burning it will kill many of them. *:>>& :*??.

In i|h* Iw^^ years following!, more ipifloirwB, were: gh>Wn ,and more acound than the oat silage. This test was carried,on for a pdWod ot only a few days and should not, therefore, bo given undue importance. ^It was observed that the sunflower silage was more laxative than the oat silage. It seemed, therefore, from this test that rather lighter feedings than is comnlon with oat or corn silage should be given. With regard to the culture of the crop in Saskatchewan, our records indicate that sunflowers yield twice as much as corn under the soil and (dtmatic conditions that exist at Saskatoon.. The variety we have used is the same as that used by the Montana Experimental Station, namely* the Giant Russian. For silage purposes it may be sown any time during the last ten days of May either in hills or in rows. We liave always sown ours in rows about three feet apart at the rate of approximately fifteen pounds per acre. No experiments as to the time of planting or the rate of planting have been conducted. It is quite possible that fltteen,pounds to the acre is more seed than Is necessary. When �own in hills, or under very dry conditions in TOWS,fmrthej^apa^t than three feet, ar'Httla sk flte tp eight jjounds may be found satisfactory.. The'land should be P5^p'ared in the same way as for com. After the plants are up inter� tillage is necessary to control weeds and lessen evaporation. Ordinarily the crop should be allowed to grow as late as possible and still escape frost. When the seed is in the milk stage It Is considered that the crop Is In the best stage for harvesting. The cutting can be done satisfactorily by using the corn harvester. The filling of the silo with the sunflowers is carried ou't in exactly the same manner as if com were used. lusufflcient work has been done to enable one to estimate with any degree of accuracy, the probable vaUie of sunflowers in Western Canadian agriculture. There is, however, ,no.^ doubt of the ability to yield relatively high as compared with corn: its value as a feed promises much, but more data should be acquired before It can be considered to have safely passed the experimental^ stage; nothing ^s known of Its effect on the soil, whereas it has been shown time and time again that corn leaves the land in much better condition for a cereal crop than any other crop now used. mt eats, be Will D versa. kan Uttd a'o^an a f^py of th� "Lcthbrldga rieraW." ifiO r^adflp�rtB-but STOCKS. :"F6r;oiii' future a; Government Bond, a steady dividend from in--dustriaVo^.'Mn:ltclpal Foads would bo sure-I wonder If Will taaa made Canadian Trust Co.
