"I'wfis a martyr to Hay Fever for probably fifteen years and I suffered terribly at times.

It is curious to note that it Is the, upposed astute business man that IB n many cases behind In the tli-a. armers saw this coming six years go. The Alberta Farmers AsHOcia- on, and later, the United Farmers .of Iberta, made strenuous efforts to uild up trade via the western route, s early as 190G. Papers 'were writ- and speeches made, bu'fc the bulk humanity was not stirred from Its tliargy and things drifted on ae iey were, the deadest of be- g the British Columbia folks, who ave now woken up with such a rush ,at something is going to happen. The question of transportation for e Western provinces la the .'most tal question of the day, in fact the hofe question in many ways. For depends now upon the development transportation, as to how fast b'r; iw best wo can any direc- on. Already in .some parts land is iiuj? cut of cultivation and fences opping down because the farmers, mote from railroads, will no longer ,ul wheat over bad roads and over long distances on these bad roads. When grain is high, .wheat hauling over long distances may pay, but tho farmer now-u-days will not haul 40.. to 50 cent wheat IS or miles to receive, those prices. There was one point that received very :Httie attention at the Congress and that was mixed farming, possibly because-very'few In the room under- stood any too much about it. The whole ot" the trade route question was figured out on a basis of Wheat Going Out and goods coming iu return cars to it worth while for the rail- roads.to haul grain out and have some cargo in the cars coming back. Here a big liitch in relation to 'the East -and much opposition perhaps. Mixed farming, did not enter Into the calculations, but here is where we may save a good deal in transporta- tion 'by not sending out s0 much grain bulk'-.but.by sending out farm produce in- a'more' concentrated form. The-railroads would by this because- on the higher'class of "goods they would'obtain, a higher rate of freight and! interchange would be regular and move lyould pass too .and fro. We cannot afford, unless we wish to ruin our country, to be in wheat, "or rather in exporting wheat; for we are ex- porting the land'with it which spells rufn in the long run. We. should export, flour in preference to wheat and feed the by products, and return the manure to the land. Another great factor has been.Iost sight of in most'of our business op- erations In western Canada, and this policy lias ben foste'red a'great deal by the banks and .loan companies, viz., the taking as secii for loans LOOK FOR THE LABEL Ail. Ur CfinatTa P. Q. BOSUN and as the best'basis'for loans, land as. wheat land other branches or other "forms.'of farming. worked a great deal of In- jury 'and will have, as a policy, to be dropped. In the interest of Canada as a na- tion and in the interest'of Alberta as the greatest of all prob- lems ;we have, lo consider is, "What is the greatest return per acre we can obtain, for each and every acre in the: wast, whether farmed or grazed only. By this I mean, is wheat the best paying crop that can be grown, yield- ing the greatest profit 'to the grower, the -business of the' country and the country at large. Does wheat grow- ing pay? No. As we examine into farming conditions the" world over'we find'that wheat "yields but a small interest on Ihc capital invested in its culture, and as with all small grain crops, is very Exhausting to Land Taking' tho various crops, ;that can be grown upon good land, we find many -that will give a cash return far exceeding that of wheat, an-cl, surely it is this class o? farming 'that we should .try to work up to. This cannot be done .by tho fanner alone out by the intelligent assistance of the public at large, For surely it is easy to sec that, if wheat, for instance, yields a return to the farnvsr of per acre, 'over and above the cost of growing, ,a crop that will bring in a1 revenue return, in n year, of per acre is surely far more worth considering, as it niBiins that much inor-3 money in the country to be used at home by all of us and some of which drifts in'to everyone's pocket, creating far greater and more general prosperity. A country that can earn double per acre on all the hind cultivated on what it Is doing or has done, is sure- ly a far richer nnd better country to lira In than one that la just drag- ging along, using itself up as it. goes and giving only a second rate sort of living, hardly earned, to tho inhab- itants thereof. We may say how is this better farming to he accomplished? In one wav surelv something might be done to encourage ninnufaciures. for why should WP everlastingly be compelled to pay cxhoi'bltsnt prices for our goods, manufactured n long way from home: pfiyint; for. the long haul of these goods and also paying for Ihe hnni of our protlucls out of these eru provinces by tho most pex-. ponsivo routes. dr- .duct Ha from our yell's fit nnd -exhauHt the fertility our soil by growing crops that do oxlimiei this soil in short .order and arc uo't hi our'best1 Interest; 'but spoil ruin to the country; hi the future. Why do we not go In for mixed farming? Because in order to make a success of mixed farming, there must bo ft belter and larger home market. How' would We obtain the better home market? Why by encouraging manufactures in; the west with' the corresponding increase of population, It IB worthy of note that the question of manufacturing or factories for the west was not -mentioned at the Pan- ama Canal conference. The present policy of Canada, as a whole, may be expressed in a -few words, viz., that tha east shall 'retain the 'manufacturing as its chief asset is not to be interfered with. The west Is to' grow grain. The goods are- to. bei sold in the Western provinces chiefly, and are to be haul- ed on to the west at high freight rates. ..The grain Is to be hauled back at good rates over Canadian railroads, the western farmers and residents paying piper.in all .cases. The 'west is to be kept without1 factories, and. con- sjqnently, its'population Is not to be- come very hence there will bo A Limited Market for the mixed, farmer; and thus pro- ducts will be grown that are easy to will store or lie in elevators unlimited periods without spoiling. These protluc'ts, mostly small; grain, are to exhaust the soil .and be the chief means of support.of the ..west for an indefin- ite the land is exhausted and the western farmers have to emi- grate somewhere else, la'-'a few words the west is to be bled For the east and for the sake of supposed imperial adhesiveness, with the ultimate end such 2, policy dis- aster for Canada as a whole, for it Is evident that if In 'a few'years the fer- tile soil of the west is ruined and her people running downhill that the prosperity of the east will descend in like The only outcome of the present policy is ruin to western land. How. .long will the west suport'this a national policy, i.e., when its eyeB are opened? How Ions will it pay the east. .to.'try and ruin one end 'Dominion for the temporary benefit of the older part of it? Farming in the west must be made to pay.

The toest .method of creat- ing general prosperity In the west, at present in sight, seems be in fost- ering the western trade route which us not only In active touch with the Orient, but Cheapens Our Carriage of Grain to Great Britain, hut also cheapens the freight on goods coming to us, via., the Pacific but also puts us into much closer and cheaper touch 'with the West Indies, rthe Pacific coast of the United States, both east nnd west shores of South America and last, but not least, South Afrlcn. The more we study the Panama Canal route the more it opens our eyes to the possibilities of Western Canada. Not only can we .export farming pro- ducts that way, but also manufactur- ed articles if we make them, coal and minerals, etc., etc. We must of necessity in order to preserve of our country, retain the fertility of our soil and'be an up-to-date and 'progreeslv country, foster our farming, encourage fact- ories, mining and. all possible indust- ries and let each and ail aid en-a an- other.- v The .question of the Western route, 6r shipping via the Panama Canal, was approached, and the discussions which iook place chiefly, if not en tireiy, considered" the snipping of wheat in bulk. Few if any, seemed to want to consider" anything but return freights. It ia the broadening of this question nnd its phases, as time goes that we shall make 'the largest gain.1 We have to consider the future of Canada as well as the present, and it is'very pretty to talk of Canada as tho granary Empira, but if we are to impoverish the1 land or ruin the West -by "adopting a system of grain growing jmrc ami simple, the end Is not difficult to foretell.
