Duucan Marshall, the board, the structors, and in the entire de- partment, may veil fee! proud. The report of the work of cue-de- moastratioii farms and schools, of ag- riculture for the -past year, which .has just been issued under the direction of Mr. Marshall, to an enlightening and satisfactory document which, should'be in the bauds of every fanrl er in the province In addition to-the report there are several' articles on subjects close to every farmer, written by members oi the teaoning stafi so that the pub- lication is just as valuable as a bulle- tin as it is in. the way of a record oi accomplishment it was decided some .time. ago. and 5lr MarshalT was strongest factor in support of the if.the problems of the former were to solved, thev .must be out on tie land by the au- thorities themselves This system' adopted in -preference to an agri- cultural college system of instruction In connection with the University; a system in jraCiice in -nearly all of the Other provinces. f In applying tbis eoneme, the offic- ials found that farming operations in Alberta entail a considerable amount of labor aad expense. They were con- fronted with tba problems tbat meet 'every former wlho is endeavoring to transform tbe. raw prairie into' a pro- ductive farmstead. They discovered that every little addition or improvement, la the way of buildings, cultivation or live stock, lad to be paid for in bard cash, and that the average profits did not repre- sent more- than wages for the farmer and bis family, in addition of course, to the advantage of creating and own- ing-a home. The fact is, bumped up against the thousand little knotty problems encoiaitered by the averagfi farmer, and the information they ob- tained in the conquering of these dif- ficulties could never 'have been learn- ed in tba classroom. They were compelled to face the fact that if farm boys are to foe train- ed in the correct methods of farming, tie boys and -girls must have their agricultural education surrounded by the rignt kind of environment The schools were therefore founded upon farms such as any -boy might .well hope to build -up for himself. Here the student eaw tie actual re- sults of tSie handling of good dairy cattle, and the raising of hoga and cattle under the correct methods of breeding and feeding. They saw also the effect of thor- ough cultivation and good tllfeb. They were taught tbat it .pays to use only the best seed, and they learned how to detect poor seed and seed adulter ated with weed seeds. They learned tbat their calling was a dignified one and that the inan on the 'land is an asset to the province and country end they became enthused and sough' eagerly for the principles of intelll gent agriculture, a consequence which In Itself is 'bound to mean much for the future of the industry in the pro- We have :by no means yet achiev- ed the results at which we aim.

Alore schools must he built before The demand for I better education niade by the farmer's boy and the farmer's girl in Alberta must met. The future operation of these Instllutions calls for more abor and more money, but if they are the means'of imparting informa- ioni "to make life on the farm more atisfactory, and in any way more profitaWe, Uie'y are well -worth while." The farm work, considering the ost of labor; lias been most profit- able, and the records made with the everal dairy herds are remarkable. The dairy ccw competitions were so successful that they will be carried jn this year from'each of the farms, at Clareshplm, Olds and Vermilion. The financial statement is worthy also of a note. ..The farms produced, a revenue of during the year. After the operating expenses, ncluding depreciation, value of. feed, eed, etc., on hand, and value of the ncrease. in .lire stock for 1912 had been deducted, tbe net profit was 11.36.
