From this it would appear that the total precipitation at Calgary is greater than at either Edmonton or "Indian Head and the latter places do not complain of insuffi- cient moisture. Calgary, however, impresses one as being drier and no doubt it is. The heavy black humus soil ol the Edmonton country holds its moisture, and the timber or scrub, prevents rapid evaporation. The dry chinooks and untimbered prairie are aids to rapid evaporation. Neither Indian Head or Edmonton feel the influence these winds in their characteristic forces, but Leth- bridge, Medicine Hat and Calgary do. It is evident that though the south 'o o u n t r y appears dry, its average precipitation is sufficient for crop production if the moisture can be conserved.
