Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 12, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta FurnacM The "Sunshine" furnace and "�unny" ways are synonymous. The cold, dreary winter days can be made cheery and wnrm with a pure, healthful heat if you have a " Sunshine " fanwoe. Is easier to operate, cleaner, uses lees fuel wd s art' more e��ily frown than /niit. Vhc exact opposite is the truth uiv.l the reason is eMy to apprecialant.-iag agrove of traes aroimd has homo. la Choo�j�ve OrohaiKt Site. ~�r ^ I In �6ooeiDg  aito for the ordiard tiM itai conaidaration aboukl be Mr better in a heavy than in a light soil. At Ifae satnc time, howewr, tbey con certainly be successfully grown in almost any 90ii that will raise corn, wheal or po tatoes. The soil should bo at least five o six feet ihep, with i>rwerably a clay bottom; but give�i a givaier depth of soil the nature of the sub-soil is* almost immaterial so lone as ii i.s composed ot some' substance permeable by the roots of tjws. On the question of exiKWUixj everybody'diftera, but fruit trees are found growing and doing well in evoo' vw-i ioty of exposure ami facing ever point of the compass. My own or obanJ f'n-ars. Some protection from wi'i>d is most dosiraiblc, especially tor winter ap -pies, which aiv prone to fall in tho September squalls a few weeks lie-fono maturing. On the other hand, too much ^leiter is productive o heat and the trees, missiin^ the wiitd motion, oro apt to grow spindly. Ai tbe 'blossoming period t4>o future crop will suffer less from frost *on tbe slopes than on ithe iowlanJs, the hillsides often baing e.xempt u'hen o black freexe hold.s t'ull away over t'ho bottoms. the tiea'it furrows in Ahm trees woL-e planted, l(>�tving tlw land sllll (li.vlnvl towaixl the t.roes aiv.i thus tlirowin'ir no inconsiderable quanl'ity of water to their roots during the sumiiior storms and freshlots. Before winter every youn^ij tree Kpl>ould bo wrapiHvl with burlap or wire screening to oheckmat* tlie rabbits. TUiis can txi done with advaotage as soon a-s tlte planting is over, as it also act.s hy way of protection from the hoal of the sun until' tihe tre extensive damage. Very Important. The best antidote for this kind of trouble is to head the tirees low enough so that the lower branch.* stvade the tnmk, but whoi� this ireatniont ta impracticable it is ea.iy and expedient to wrap the tree with burlap or shade the sunny �Kle of the trunk with a board. The damogc from this cause, how-evoj-, is muvb less in dry orchai'd.s thou in 'those which ai� inigatod, and in ordinary winter amouniM lo nothing. The burstiii'i^ powei of the frost, owing to reducc*d air pres.suiv, incrciaSJS w'ith altitude uu-tiil only the toughes't and roost elastic-fibred trees can exist at timber-line. Ttris is the only ill effect of altitude on fruit trees, so far as 1 have been able to discover, and it can easily tie obviated by 'the means above stated. At tbe sanH> time we must boar in mind that the evtrenie-ly hardy variety of trees fromnortl� fcr-age. 1 know lin otie part of Iflnglnnd in the dry sumnwr of 1001. a former cut.suffloienit daily from a two-acre field for twonty-.six ntilch .ow.s, one bull and fifteen ealxes, and no .itock could have (hrivwl bot'tt^r or proved more sati.^fuolory.

"Mowing and successive growth, in season aiKl out of season," he .says, "is one of the advantages of an alfalfa plo't. Stock ot all Winds appreciate it ami pigs eat this summer salad vorncioualy." Alfalfa, a very deep rooting plont. will only O'ttain the highest jierfec-tion oti ligM or loamy so>i'l�i wh�ro iSierc is a good and free subsoil, a� the rpo'ts penetrate to a very givat depth to find moisture. It is u linio loving plant, and where this mineral exists in tha soil, the growth is proportionately iu.xuriant. Ji should not be sown on cold clays, or kMUiis with a hard sub-soil, tlioiigh some have succeeded witii it even under those conditions. The prcparat -icn of the land for alfalfa is somewhat important.

'Ihcre is a happy medium between these two vhen the ground will crumble nicely under the cultivator, showing moist earth everywhere. Then is the time to cultivate.
