Mr VlmdlL himself states; that he is not pto German: Ho has sent the following statement to the citizens' committee here, which the Herald publishes for wint it is worth Citizens Committee Lethbridge I am not pio German I have farmer, who has a model farm that do credit to any irrigated dis- trict. He has a windbreak of a thousand trees; a patch of alfalfa that cut 2J4 tons, to, the acre this year; three-quarters of a section .in spring wheat, as fine-as any in the country, and a kitchen garden that won ten prises in the Claresholm fair. Mr. Wyman is a mixed farmer, and has a little of everything. He has all kinds of stock, and grows bis own hay to feed it.' Possibly the most re- markable thing about his. farm, how- ever, is his garden, wherein he has numerous varieties of small fruit and berries which regularly give excel- lent yields, and he is experimenting with crabapples, plums and cherries. In the short time be 1ms bad these trees planted, they have shown phen- omenal growth, and promise to yield heavily. That small fruits will grow well and uear plentifully without the use of irrigation, has been proved by Mr. Wyman, who has had excellent results year after year, dry years included. He. te picked enough strawberries from one small patcli to keep himself and family in fresh and preserved fruit Ihe year around. He has a thousand of the finest cab- bages in the country, and of other kinds of garden truck a sufficient am- to supply his own needs and then sell to the leas enterprising neighbors who consider that farming consists in. raising wheat. Mr. Wyman came to this country from Illinois ten years ago, and took up a quarter-section of land. When the prices of land went uDj he did not speculate, but went cautiously tlK he had paid for his quarter-sec- tion. Than, instead of loading him- self up with more land than he could farm thoroughly, he rented land and put in crops. He has done this 1'or several years. This year he rent- ed 4SO acares and sut it in crop. ,He expects a yield of from 45 to 50 bush- as on the summer-fallowei wheat, and from 25 to SO busheli on the stubhled in wheat. He has some land in oats, and looks. Cor- a crop of 75 or 80 bushels to the acre. Mr. Wyman has proved'the success of mixed dry land. If the results are not convincing enough, the fact that he intends purchasing another quarter of land this fall, should convince even the most skep- tical.
