In addition to this specially trying cir-cumstauoo wo have also had this year the wofst winds I think we have over experienced, accompanied by thA most sovoro spring frosts, with the result that much of the grain was damaged from^hese causes more than from the drouth.

We are (irmly convinced that 1 if the agricultural class is to achieve the' things that are necessary to put the business on a standing that it deserves and must attain, this achievement must be through our own efforts and through the one road of organiiation.

Korncarly two years the delivery of milk on Suhdny to �!onden8ing plants and Its iDniiufncturc have I>een under consideration by tho Lord's Uay Alliance incldentnl to the -Sunday opdr-ntions of n largo manufactory in Ontario contending tot this privilege. Supporting its plea of necessity for Sunday dcHvery, tlie company emphasized tho dctorioratloii of milk held oyer Sunday, war contracts, needs of tho Allied countries, and inadequate plant. Incapacity, the Alliance asserted, �was an avoidable not an absolute necessity. The company had no right to undertake business it could not hand gone now from wind and drouth, while | \p Nevertheless the Alliance conceded the remaining three-tenths will pro-isu,day delivery for that sea.soii tip to bably run from a quarter to half a i the 1st of October. This concession crop, depending entirely on what the | was refused. As to necessity the Al clouds will give ub during July and ! liance contended that the Ontario gov Lemon Juice For Freckles Girls! Make , beauty lotion at horns for a few cents. Try it! Ailgust. While it is not good business, nor is it the predisposition of the west, to be pessimistic, still there Is nothing to be gained by concealing these tacts from the public, many of whom know the situation already, while many others desire to know it for business reasons. Should .copious rains come by July 15 everything would be changed very much tor the better. And. of course, no country or even a fair one. without rain. True, certain localities have had quite substantial rains, enough to keep them going from week to week, with their crops looking correspondingly well; ernment ruling of 1907 which required discontinuance of Sunday delivery and manufacture in cheese factories applied and supported tliis by citing the manager's statement that, with prop er care, Sunday's milk could be delivered on Monday in good condition, the practi'.ce of tho company in accepting for some time Sunday's milk on Mon day, and for a considerable period the Sunday supply of patrons, represent ! ing aDout SO.OOO pounds daily, who ' would not deliver on Sunday, and tho policy of the Borde.T Milk Co., which for over 17 years had neither received nor manufactured milk on Sunday. To this was added the consideration that it was not necessary to hand over the whole milk supply to the condenser- ney Ociieruj, Tiow'ovor, submitted it to the Canada Food Board. Tho Board in turn referred It back to tho Attorney (Jennral. Later It cnnio under tho review of tho Minister of Agpiciiltun! and the Premier and was tigaln sub; mitted to tho Kood Hoard. Meanwhile tho situation had changed. According to tho Food Board, Sir Guy Garnett, head of the f.llied pur-chnalng comJnIaslon In tho United States, daclared the need of this jiro-ducl for children and the s'lclc In tho allied countries. The Board therefore fixed the price and nJisumed Control of export. Under these ttltercd condition* the Alliance could offer no objection to tlio Board's ruling in July in favor oi: Sunday delivery and manntacturo. Thc-concession made was not abaoluto but limited In tho following particulars: First: For this year only, subject, of course, to renewal yearly as conditions required. Soccjnd; From tho IGth of May to tho luth of September in this year. Third: To oondonaed and evaporated luiltc plants bnly. Cheese and milk powder factories are not included. Accompanying tho Board's order Is the guarantee of quiet on Sunday to the communities affected and liberty of employees to one day's rest in seven. county last year farmers increased wheat acreage this.spring 15 per cent.

ComsUft Off Oe�tn't hurt a bit to lift any com er callus off with fingers. areas of farm land highly adapted to Irrigation, where the farmers greatest difficulty is lack of moisture, both in farming 'is crop and caring for his stock, and in this particular year farmers are absolutely at the mercy of the elements, and in the rivers which traverse these sections there is.almost an unlimited supply of wat-ed. What a transformation would be wrought if this water flowing past our doors, as it were, was distributed among the fanners for irrigation ^nd stock purposes, even, it only 40 acres on the average farm should be irrigated? It is well known, too, that this is entirely practicable and at reasonable cost, but there Is one imghty obstacle in the way-it requires intelligent well directed organ-i:tation on Uie part of the farmers. Given i.his faculty of organization the soil, and the extra labor put on the land this spring-due to farmers having abundance ot^ time-will enable us to make a showing at all under =.

However, a characteristic of the West, is always to hope for the best, but that trait is always better supplemented by also preparing for the worst.

Farming means production, just as truly aa does manufacturing. The farmer, however, h'ds an advantage over tlie manufacturer in that the latter must make his own experiments; he must pay for Ills experience. If the results of his experiments are satisfactory, they may produce financial returns fully warranting the outlay. It th^y are unsatisfactory, tho e^;-pendlture upon the investigation Is lost, and.
