MITCHELL, DIAN HEAD, AND D. W. WARNER, OF EDMONTON. IN- Oliver Hall was comfortably on Saturday afternoon to hear Issrs. A. Mitchell, of Indian Head, 1.1 D. W..Warner, of Edmonton, dis- is' the respective subjects of tree Anting.and soil culture. There were present as Mr. Mitch- said, just the people he wanted to Six years ago.when addressing [meeting "in Lethbridge he-went on had to speak to a hall full [citizens, the people were not really icerned as ..the farmers were, al- ugh perhaps very interested, and he was ;see so rep. sentative a crowd of live farmers. he need of trees was Mr. Mitch- r s first and he expressed Irne very 'decided opinions along lis line stating that in the build- Ig and" making of a place- ;tp- llowedby trees ire essential. The farmer-is a busy [an and in. his varied .occupation Ics .manythings that "make a change ]r him, he goes-over the hill and other juses, or it may be, a _bunch of erases loom; up in the to reak the monotony of the-..wide area vision but to; the wife always: in ..'e -house -there is no such opportun- Iy given her in the life, continually [ved within tlie house, seeing noth. K and having no place: of test for eyes, just a large expanse ;6f rackiess prairie with little ,.or. no ia.t2ge. Such.-conditions.-should be if not.for the -wife-then ior je sake of-the little ones, wlio love of nature green and. who ike keenest pleasure in playing feneath-the shade of trees that con- titute a part and a ome.- large part of The average farmer puts up the pJoa in defense of such arrangements as this that the growing of a grove is'well nigh impossible in this coun- try but Mr. Mitchell proved beyond doubt that such an excuse is non- sense ior the conditions in, this. coun- try are for- tree growing and by many photographs taken of surrounding copses and plantations-right In Alberta and'with- in-.a few miles of the city made his audience to feel that il farmers- wish- ed, withiri a few .years our highways and farm surroundings might have a luxuriant ''growth' of 'trees refresh- ing alike to the eye and mind, not -productive of cool shade ior their elders but affording pleasure to the children still "engaged with their games, who in after life.; would- never forget-that corner, and always remember with gratitude the care oi the parent who had made such a. thinjr possible.. Trees like- grain are a crop and need .attention, and .the ground must be made ready to- receive, the seed- also not be planted far apart. Four feet apart was a safe and a highly desirable distance for them. Upon mining maturity, a grove of trees twenty yards wide and at tms dis- tance apart would offer splendid pro- tection from the wind and weather. The distance, trees should be planted from the house is from thirty to forty yards for as the speaker .pointed_out, the trees are not always going to re, main small, but m time become large and spread .and if too near the house -will keep light and air away, and also there is a great .advantage to be gained from this space inter- vening between the house and the trees, which can be used as a garden for vegetable stuffs., ,and if as sug- gested the lines of trees be at least twenty yards apart this space could also be used for potato growing, a? had been proved with great success One of the '.greatest enemies that seedling trees have to contend againsl is blue joint grass and Mr. Mitchel! laid great emphasis on this. There is not sufficient nurture in "the grounc for seedling trees-and this grass at once. Therefore great care must be taken to eliminate this, entirely. How to Get Trees. How to get trees was then discus- sed and the lecturer read the fol- lowing instructions from Circular No 3 issued by the .Department of the Interior which-gives lull particulars ..The Forestry Branch of the De partment- of the Interior is preparec ac'.'far as the means at its' dispose will permit, to assist farmers aud others in sections of Man itoba, Saskatchewan and.

Since the department was .opened over thirteen .of. trees have been sent out (and the speaker, de- scribed how each parcel was packed wet moss or.mud) and put of this ______ th Tree Planting Division .a Indian Head, Sask., stating the quar ter section on which the plantatioi is'proposed to be made, the nature o the soil and how cultivated, the near est. express .office post offic address..: v. 2 On receipt of this application ar agent of the Department "steucted to visit and; examine th land, and if he is satisfied that tree can be successfully, grown: thereof he will see to the execution, by tn applicant-of a certain form of. agree- ment .which has., been authorized b the Department, setting forth th conditions on "which .the .Governmen proposes to assist-in this work, Th agent will also confer. withv.the ap plicant. while on'the ground-; and j.i.-_" i A-P-I ..TOTPS range for the-Jocation- of amf other 'details.
