Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 24, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETI1BRID.GE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, FEBRUftRTO;t01^ ITEMS OF INTEREST TO THE "RURAL CRED^B^ WILL BE DISCUSSED IN OTTAWA-DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE GREATLY, ASSISTS JTHE FARMER Winnipeg. Feb. 22.-An Ottawa despatch to the Winnipeg Telegram today says: "Agricultural credits and soldiers' land settlement will be the measures discussed in parliament when it reassembles in April. Legislation embodying the government's proposals to furnish cheap money to farmers and farms to soldiers has been discussed m council and is now in course of revision. Sir Thomas AVhite has charge of the agricultural credit bill "while the soldiers' land settlement measure is being prepared by a subcommittee of the privy council. "Both these propositions will he administered by permanent boards and �will not he permitted' to becomeNpoli-tical agencies. It is very probable that 8-board of three will be appointed to administer both the agricultural ei!e-d{tSv,and soldiers' settlement, and will liAve similar powers and permanency of the pensions' board, railway commission and grain commission. The acre as not profit. If, by sowing well cleaned seed, the yield is increased one bushel per aero, the increase in net profit is 20 per cent. The clean- , ing of the seed in spare time during I the winter does not. add one cent to ' the cost of production. When well cleaned seed is sown in place of ordinary grain, the gain in yield is, of course, much more than one bushel per acre. The net profit has often been increased 50 per cent or even doubled. This is one way of increasing production and profit. LOllHlY [ AS A PARTNER Illustration work in crop production and cultural methods is being carried on in the provinces of Albertn and Saskatchewan by the Department of Agriculture of the Dominion government, and some very interesting results are expected this year. The co-operation of farmers owning operating land favorably situated the farmer mails-to the Central Experimental farm at Ottawa a form filled out with particulars as to tho work done, general weather conditions and crop progress. In this way the farmers of the various districts of the two provinces will be appraised of the results and the best way to operate their farms to obtain the^ae results._ ISM PUNT RlDY?

The loss of a nut or breakage of a small part while engaged in the field may mean also the loss of the use of not only the implement, but the team, the hired help, and probably of the opportunity during favourable weather to perform the work which had. been planned. LIVE STOCK AND SOIL FERTILITY t' � being repeatedly urged to keep more live stock on their farms. Many reasons why they should do so are given, chiefly that stock-farming is profitable and that it will increase the fertility of the soil. Certain* points are often insufficiently emphasized in the discussion of this question^ If stock farming is to. be ________ . . profitable-, the stock must be of good The farmer keens a record of the | quality, and must be given proper amount of time taken to perform the; and intelligent , care.

The first year the department furnishes the seed necessary to sow such of the fields as it is decided to put under crop that year. In subsequent years'the farmer saves enough of the best of the crop grown on these fields to do the necessary seeding. This, of course, providing the grain produced is satisfactory as to purity and. ger-minative power. All cultural and harvesting operations in connection with, these fields including the ploughing, harrowing, sowing and threshing of the grain, are done by the farmer.  AM the above work is done in exactly such p way and exactly such a time as directed by the illustration station division of the Dominion experimental^arms system.

Phone 1343 Lethbridge If Good Crops are Expected, Good Seed Must be Sown. v The. quality of the seed grain sown en the farm next spring will depend upon tfafi, farmer himself. This is , a matter which is entirely in his own hands/If good crops are to be expected, good seed must be sown. The former should prepare the seed now for the spring sowing. During the winter months, when other farm �work is not pressing, is the best time to clean the grain for seed. The best grain grown on the farm should be nsed and it should be put through the fanning mill two or three times at least, or until all of the light or shrunken grain and the weed seed.' are removed. There is a distinct loss in sowing weak seed and it is much more profitable to screen out the shrunken and weak grain and feed it than to sow it and lose it. It is also essential, that weed seeds be not spwn 'if - weed ' growth is to be prevented. , - The increase in total yield is practically all profit. A crop of wheat from ordinary seed may yield 25 bushels per acre, and cost 20 bushels per acre to produce, leaving five bushels per He-"How .swell you look." nt sMtler* I She-"It yvas, only removing the 7� ^w,p~J!
