McLEAY A LITTLE LAND WELL TILLED What are the points of comparison between the Canadian and Latin [armors? The question was interest- ingly discussed at thy. meeting of ;he Kxperimental Union by President Sreohuan of Uie Ontario Agricultur- al'College, his1 conclusions being based on observations made during Itis visit to Europe ..last summer. The Italian or French peasants, be u content to fairn a small quantity of land, und farm it well. They apparently were perfectly hap- py to remain on their small patches hi Scotland. with countries was taut fa. peasant population expected' 3'uu' to get anywhere.

In opening his address President Creelmau explained that it was not his intenlion to deal with agricultural conditions in England and Scotland, but at the same time he made one or two references to old country conditions winch were of inteiest in view of the criticism of the methods adopted by Canadian farmers by others who have spoken at meetings of the Union. regard to the agricTiltural educational insti- tutions which he visited, he found that the principle adopted was for 'ach .institution in specialize on a branch of the work rather hari to afford facilities for gaining ,'eneral iiuormation, as was lliv pol' cy--at the Ontario college. Passing o a discussion of agricultural meth- ods in ,Italy, France and Switzer- land, .the speaker laid great empha- sis on -the intensive farming practis- ed in those countries. He pointed out that although Italy was only twice the size of Mew York State, yet that country produced bushels of cereals in the course of a year, to say nothing of the vast amount of other agricultural pro- ducts. The peasant people were thrifty people, and the thing which had jmpresfeed him in connection President the frivolity type Creelmau was struck by the Parisians.

The English farmer had a particular knowledge of the needs of each of his fields, and he was willing to spend ten dollars an acre for fertilizers if he knew he would get an additional fifteen dol- lars an acre out of the crop. The Italian or French peasant keep himself and family on the waste resulting from the methods of a Canadian fanner. The Canadian farmer would, on the other hand, go out of business rather than put up with the lumbering oxen and poky donkeys that the continental agricul- turists were content to use. The Swis-a farmer was content to put his profit back into his land for the pur- pose of increasing its productiveness, Over worth of DIAMONDS Rings, Pins, Lockets, etc. Just in Today C.

Exactly what iorm-the legislation should take was not very definitely expressed, but presumably it was considered desir- able that the farmers should be com- pelled to'clean the infected areas.

This is the experience of Inglebrightson, of St. Albert, who was ordered by Judge Taylor in the district court yesterday, to pay Dr.- Ferris the sum of for medical attendance to his family for a period extending over July, August aud September of 1906. "It is about time that a tariff be set for doctor's charges." said His Honor in giving the above judgment. "There have been too many cases in court of disagreement over fees for medical attendance." The claim for the plaintiff, Dr. Fer- ris, was for being the fee lor seventeen day visits and one night visit to the house of the defendant, which is thirteen miles from the plain US's office. The most important plea of the de- fence was that Dr. Ferris had a pa- tient beyond the Inglebrightson home, and one at St. Albert, and yet he charged the defendant in full for the trip to St. Albert at the rate of per mile with additional charge for the rig. The defence also claimed the request of the defendant, and that only eight visits were at these at per visit would make the latter indebted for only His Honor held that as there was Attractive Ideas for Xmas Presents Our- Store contains alarge assortment of orient- al art Groods.
