For instance: Hugh Mackintosh, of Maclwd, told the big audience of ISO or more that when MiM Cora Hind, of the Wiani- Free Press, suggested that the fanners who allowed weedi to grow on their farms should be hotted in oil, for himself he would prefer a little water from the Oldman River on hit land so that he could fight the weeds. Tht Weed Mcnact John McD. Davidson, the Hereford breeder of Coyldale, telling the irriga- tion larmers' side of it, declared that thaw wasn't a .weed he knew of which couldn't be fought successful- ly alfalfa, and that when the land 'becomes so valuable that it doet- B't pay to grow weeds they will dis- appear jutt at they have done on the land in hit old home (tate of Illinois.

It was folly to go to any bend home with merely a two-yeart guarantee on 30-year debenture would immediately see the element of weakness. "We mutt go to Edmon- ton and demand a full guarantee and we'll get it. They'll have to give it to he said. 'Mr. Jelliff referred to Marshall's speech at Raymond the other evening in which the minister made a strong appeal for mixed farm- ing. The minister overlooked the fun- damental thing, he said. What was the use of sending these young men on a sand hill to engage in mixed farming and stock raising? You can't feed purebred Shorthorns, Ayreshires, Fercheront or Durocs on animal hus- bandry. They've got to have- some- thing more substantial. "If there is one man in the prov- ince of Alberta that should come out squarely and: vigorously for irriga- tion extension, that man is Duncan Marshall.-1 have waited two years for declaration from the minister of ag- riculture, and I am still as- serted Mr. Jelliff.
