James Macdonah | ARCHITECT I Southard Block, Rodpath Street. LETHBRIDGE, ALTA. Irrigation Farming. From Winnipeg Free Press. The introduction of irrigation in southern Alberta during the past four or live years, lias attracted considerable attention and inleiest. The practice on nnyihiiig I>di ;i small scale is comparatively new and tins novelty lias concentrated attention on this particular phase of agricultural work to the exclusion of others. The importance of the particular phase of intensive fanning, of which irrigation is a type, is of course, very great, but the introduction of aniticiai watering hns had the affect of spreading the impression that irrigation was absolutely noeessary iu order in secure any Kind nt a '-rop. The contrary is the case and it is being demonstrated by succesful practice. Withoutdoubl the greatest centre of ilerolopomcnt during the past year or two has In-en south of Calgary, rather than north of it. at such points as High Kiver. X an ton, Clnresholin and Leavings. It has also boon active iu i'linlnr Creek, Macleod and Lethhritige districts. That is it has been along the southern division of the Calgary ami Edmonton railway, and along the Crow's Nest railway. The turn for the south country has come, and it is here now. The rancher would discredit the country, both for iriigiition and what is culled by contradistinction, "dry fanning," but the success of the settler has discredited his prophesies. The term "dry fanning" in southern Alberta is rather misleading if it is intended to indicate the need of getting along without moisture. The record of precipi-over a series of ten years extending from IS1.).") to l'.H'l for four representative centres in the Territories is as follows: - Edmonton, 1'.).-1 2'J; Calgary, U0.2.V, Medicine Hut,; lil.lU; Indian Head, lT.'JIi. ; No records are available for \ Lethbridge, but the precipitation at this point is probably about the same or a little ubove that of Modi. 1 cine Hat. ! From this it would appear that the total precipitation at Calgary j is greater than at either Kdmonton ; or Indian lle.ul and the latter places do not complain of insutii- i cient moisture. Calgary, however, impresses one us being drier anil uo doubt it is. The heavy black j humus soil of the Edmonton country holds its moisture, and the : timber or scrub, prevents rapid evniioration. The dry chinooks and untimbored prairie are l>oth aids to rapid evaporation. Neither Indian Head or Edmonton feel th.. intluence of these winds iu their characteristic forces, but Lethbridge, Medicine Hal and Calgary do. It is evident that though the south country uppeurs dry, its average precipitation is sufficient for crop production if the moisture cau be conserved. The success of winter wheat in the Spring Coulee country on the south and Clareshohn and High River on the north is resulting iu attracting considerable capital to! the Lethbridge district immediate-ly between these. Vast tracts of! farming lands are lieing at present | bought up in Lethbridge country, j both under and above the ditch, and the cultivation of all Ian Is ir: rigatetl" and unirrigated iu this dis- I trict, is a near by prospect. Though I the sale of irrigated lands this sea- j son has not been surpassed in any j previous season, the so-called dry ; lands are moving freely nt present. Several thousands of acres have been disposed of since the beginning of the year, and the autumn j sales were larger than any previous i year. , The work of dry farming is not j a question of doing without water, j but of keeping and conserving the ( moisture that falls. June break- j ing secures the winter and spring i nioiBturo to the soil itself, before it! has evaporated, or has been taken up by surface vegetation.
