To the actual physical ex- haustion of marching and figotlnE must, therefore, doubtless be added the weakness due to irregularity ot the food supply. .Not even the scientific organization, of the Germans can turn the roads of western Russia into an efficient car- rying media for the supply of both, ammunition and food.

If you will -read what follows you will un- derstand why just naturally iad' to speak up. N 'The merchants and said Mr Dunham are prone to give ad- to the farmer. On this occasion let me speak as a representative farmer and 1 t me be pardoned for giving a little advice to the merchant. We passed through a year of short crops in 1114, and the after- math -oC our somewhat dismal feel- ings has left some effects. With the natural depression of general busi- ness-caused by lhe war in addition, we have let our feelings of caution get so much the better of us lhat we are slow (o recognise really good business: conditions when these are right iipon us. This attitude has gone so tar that it is time now to take stock of the situation." Mr Dunham then went on to talk ot the present position with regard to irrigation farming and a man who owns 700 acres of irrigated land, nearly nllTof which is under a high state of cultivation, speafes as one laving authoritj and not as the scribes. !The in the early part of the summer highly fa- vorable to grain farming operations, an detrimental to the production of a. high grfcde of alfalfa suitable for shipping out our usual customers. But the weather during tlie past two weeks while we have been harvest- ing the second crop, has been highly favorable., We therefore find our- selves.- in this our first crop while fit veu weir for our home feeding, and the second will be in good shape for export. The signs t'ov a good third cutting, which is always smaller than the tirst two, are propi- '.ous." The That all so'nhded it was when Mr. Dunham got talking of the grain .crop that-he--became really en- thusiastic.
