USECAMPBELL SYSTEM OFFARNING Advice Given to Soutliern Alberta Farmers by Well Known Agricultural Editor. J. O. RtTTHGRFORD, Veterinary Director General. WM. SHAW Painter, Paper Haager, 4>ecH PubliKhing Co., editor ol tliu Anioc ican Agriculturist, the Untutfc Juilil Kuriiier, the >iew Knt^lnnu iloiiii;-sleuder and tli� Karn'i unit lluiiiu American/ farm journals haviiis combined circulation oi sovcrui >i*it�-dr*d thousand, arrived iu tho city yeaterday after making �ri'ndeil tour through western Cunadu. In conversation with a ivpresontiitivo of the Free Press, Mr, Myricli gave some of his iiupreasions of ilio country traversed by him. "I have luado it my custoiu, suid Mr. iUyrick, "to visit personullj every state and territory iu whiclicur papers circulate once each year, and to make a very careful oxuntiuatioii of these districts. Ik pursuance oi this custom 1 coiue to CutiWda several weeks ago- Before cuming the reports oi a number of, ni|>' associates who had visited Canada on many occasions. Among theso wore Proi'essor Thomas Shaw, the live stock authority; Clarence A. Shamcl associate editor; B. W. Snow, statis-tican and crop reporter, and Otto H. Ilnubold, manager of the land advertising of the Orange Judd Far nier and tho Farm and Home. J conceive that I took the right way to see Canada properly, in going flrat to Alaska �nd making the long Journey of 1,500 miles through the inland seas. I saw the evidences of the great influence on north-western Canada of tho Japan currents, in Alaska. At Skagway I picked the finest strawtjcrrics I ever saw and saw a field of the finest poppies tha ever grew. When I remembered that tho mountain ranges of tho south entirely disappear ns ono travels north, a^d when I rccolloiHcd tho great influence of the Japanese oce:in cunvnt.s, I at once unccrstood why the mate of western Canada should be such as it Is." X "How did British Colun�bia im-presH you?" TERMINAL FACIUTIES. "I was greatly struck with the terminal 1 facilities in Vancouver, and by the sjplendid harbors found along the'coast. Certain of which will �e utilized bjT railways now in process of coostructioh. The undeveloped mineral resources, the lumber. and the water powers of the province, also made a strong appeal to me. My own boyhooU�!'was spent in (he mountain districta of Colorado, and I speak jis one experienced when I sily that the mountain scenery of Canada is the most magnificent on I ''My bejjef tho natural advantages. is that with its other this irrigation insures to the city of Cal -population within fifteen the continent. Apart from its material value, this mo^iktain country must prove Iniye^rs to come ajjcreat importance as a playground ' for your people. "I saw the co|Untry at Calj^ry and Edmonton, returning fromi Edmonton to Calgary (With President Mackenzie,^ of the l^anadian Northern, and so on to Winnipeg to night. . ^ "Prior to my own visit to Canada,^ had thought that the report from our youiv men were too ou-thuaiMttc and that even Professor Shaw had had his judgment influen-ed by hospitable treatment. |I am now, free to confeu wit^- pleasure that they did not put the case a bit too strongly. "The Orange Judd Farmer an 'I was pleased to notice In tho Free Press today, an editorial on tho subject of dry farming, a matter ii^ich is of the greatest consequence especially to the province of Alberta Certain it ia, that in Southern Alberta, dry farming, by the Camplwll system, will produce crops in such quantltiea and at such low cost b.a to enhance the value ofvast aroits now considered suitable only. for range purposes." "What will the value of irrigation bo to the Calgary district?" "With reference to the C.P.R... r-rigation project in Alberta, I desire to aay that I consider it the most rational in America. This enormous ditch has lieen constructed with Much economy, and the intake water is obtained so economically that this land can be sold at less price .icr acre to the settler than any other irrigliblc land on this continent. Tho annual cost of water lor irrigation (50 cents fot each aero irrigated) is much less than prevails elscwhet-e. I was brought up in the irrigated Wfs-tions of North Colorado, and undor-atand the groat value of \irrigated land. In northern Colorado such land ia valued at from $100 to 1300 per acre. In the Yakima valley in WaahingtoB, orchard land under irrigation ia worth up to $3,000 per acre. It ia difficult to say in advance Just what this Calgary l^nd may worth. As a beet sugar \-k-pert, T was anxious to see a test made OB the Calgary plains of bent sugar raising, to which this urea seenui well adapted. As already announced,, a Japanese envoy fa now Inokinir'over the district with a view �jcltomo gar J' a i years of lO,OC0 people. "Farther north 1 found the country rich lAi fertile, more rolling, more wooded, with a climate equally good if not letter. The ^uest trop.s I have seen anywhere were average crops ' in the Edmonton Country. Between Calgary and Bdmon -ton there, are inuuense areas of splendid land which can be bought at the present at low prices. Edmonton itself is the metropolis of the inUnd empire of the Canadian northwest. By this inland empire I refer to the immense area beginning a hundrad miles south, tvo hundred miles eaat and stretching away to the north and west indefinitely. Few people in Winnipeg realiz�-the nMgnitude and richness of this empire. It may lie compared to tho inland empire of the Americait states between the Oas -cade and the Rocky mountains, consisting of 150,000 aquare miles of which Spokane is,the c^^ntre. At the present time ntany Americans are treking to the Peace Riveir country, to the far Northwest from Edmonton, tho possibilities of which country will yet astonish the world. "What opinion have you formed of tho wheat, crop of this year?" "My oi>inion of tho wheat crop is based on some personal investiga -tions, on comprehensive reports iimdc to me privately, on the reports appearing in the Free Press, and ci-r-tain other data. From all that I have learned 1 nm led to believe that you will have J,10,COO.OOO bushels this year in this country/'. AMERICANS STIIX TO COME. "Is the movement of Americans to Canada to continue?" "Thisj is tho tiuestion I anil always ixskcd. 'In reply I have said that Americans wil| continue to come to Canada in increasing nunitiers for some years. I thipk that you may expect as many ns 200,000 in u single your, ibut I do not boliiivo that the total will over exoeod that numlicr. I met many Americans during my trip. Thoy aro universally satisfied with the country. They suy that it is not nocf^sury to tell till the truth about" Canada to secure the immigration of Americans to Canada, and it certainly is aOt necessary to exaggerate. Our jieople would apparently welcome closer trade relations with the Unitwi States, but there was at no time during^ my trip any suggestion made regarding political union, such a matter being considered toq;^ remote to be the subject even of thought. I was naturally struck with tho fact that in the vest the idea of municipal ownership has taken so firm a hold.' I was also surprised to find that in the City of Edmont'>n the single tax idea had been put into successful operation. A lot in that city, with valuable improv� -pnents pays no more taxies than a lot hut slightly improved, this plan forcing owners to improve vacant lots to the great advantage of the city." ' ' FARMERS' UNITY. "The cheapness of money in your new districts profoundly impressed me. In the United States in similar districts, the settlers would pay twice or three times the rates which prevail here. I was much pleaSHi, too, with the organiaatioB of farmers for self-help in varioua directions and I was �nore than deMghted with some of the tendencies ol your i-du-cat'ional system in the west, tho tendency being to lead school children to romain on the farm.

And So Montreal Doctor Has to go to Jail. - Toronto, Aug. 22.-Dr. Charles W. Wilson, of Montreal, who is prominent in medical and social circlus of that city, and who is in attendance at the meetings of the British medical association here, was this morning sentenced to a week in jnil without the option of a fine, It appears thalt Dr. Wilson, while intoxi-cutotl in the King Edward hotel approached a group of women tourliiUi and soijeed a young lady nunied Severance In his arma, a perfect atiun-ger to him, and forcibly kiaaed her.

Express of the Birkenhead lairagcs, just across the river from Li^-erpo.jl, whcra the great bulk cf Canudi>ui cattle arc landed will te of intcivst: "Tho immense numl^er of live cattle landed at Birkenhead each w>->!k, is quite astonishing, and yet ail find � market, ami in vciy "hTt time, no anlmuila Iwing allowed to' rvm.Un in>tho lairs to await markirts longer than ten da.vs, and no animals are, of course, ullowetl to leave thuso lairds alive. The lairuge accomnio-'datlon is supposed to hold some . thing near upon 6000, and very comfortable .the poor beasts appear, provided with good water and hnjk is well as other food; (ind in warm and vihll ventilated buildings, with ample space, thoy lie and chew their Gtiids in the most homely/ manii'?i', and the majority of them shos aro,taken regularly ahd carried put rigidly, so that thore is absolutely no fear of infection under the .present system . oi importation and inspection. ^ "A vtilk round tho various laiis with their long lines of cattle nil tied up carefully and resting or feeding'calmly gave room iFor observations as to what is be'ng dpqe; on the other side of the Atlantic in the way of improving the quality of tho animals' by breeding, and also In tho way of maturing them. If the bidk "of those cattle seen at the time ot' our visit arc to be taken as rcprj.*-cntativn of the best class of cattle fattened in America, then there is little doubt that.thero is. plenty of room yet for tho use of tho highest class of ^odigrce^ bulls, as a great number of cuttle that had apparently rome from farmed, land worn rather, or very, plain, and not too well finished; whilst tho ranch cattla were altogether coarser, and soiR>i of tlwse very, common looking, i^or tho other side of tho qiiislion, th-Jic were also in B�!veral lots- a niimiljer of either ]iure or very highly grafted Shorthorns that had been dehorned in their .vouth that were as symniot-trical and well finished up to good weights as the most fastidious could desire. There appeared also to l:e a few well graded Ilerefords of good shape -and quality. "As regards the geneiul weight of tho stock in some of the long rows of sides of beef that were just slaughtered and hung up, the weights were, very light, and the thought struck us that, with land, rising in pricti, and feeding stuR, too. as it ia doing at the present time in America, thjre could be but very small profits arising from the feeding of cattle to such light weights when the prices prevailing in our dead meat markets at'the present time have accepted, and all costs, freight ^nd insurance deducted. From these points of view we came to the conclusion that highly bred bulls would still be required', and that th-jra would be little probability of tho prices lowering for cattle from that quarter. " "Whether the Argentine, that aa a country is so highly favored by nature, will be-^able to supply heef at a profit with present prices TjuHng remains ta..i>e proved; but on the the-face of it there docs not .�!em any probability of this. The ox -penses, even ih that favored land, will bo increasing year by yeari Of course, to return to the quality of tile animals seen once more, all.uv -ancc has to be made (or the shrinkage that niust occur on a long tail and sea journey as compared vith our home fed cattio that have come pretty direct from their fccdjn.' quarters. Though a great many f of these aides of beef appeared good on tho top, in quite a large majority of coses the animal had killed raiiinr reak weak in kidney fat,, perhips not tho worst for beef iii this .hoi season of the year. . j � "M.4KE HAY WBIL� THE SUN SHINES."
