Buchanan John Torrance Sitoaging Director Business Manage: WELLS FOR THE FARMERS .The -Bow Island Review comes .011 with the very practicable sussestio iliat the provincial government through: the rural municipalities should aid the fanners, of the- where wells, are exnenbne, in veils for tile supplj of water for stock. The Re MCW points ojt_ the futility of advis- ing the farmer to raise stock, to prac- use dam ing branches or farming, unless a plentiful supply of pure water is readily ob- tainable. The Herald heartily endorses the Review's suggestion. There is no use denying that in parts of the south, especially 10 the nonh and east of the city, the question of a water sup- plv is one of the fanner's maia con- cerns. even before he adopts extensively. V.'e have it to cur certain knowledge that in the Chin district two wells have recently been suuk which went tb a depth, of some 700 feet before water was struck. When the. water did come, however, a flowing well, sufficient to supply quite a number of farmers, re- .sulied. The cost of such a well is over S1000. Few farmers, especially thcso whom we are. specially desirous of entering the mixed farming game, can such expense for a few years to come. The sciution sesnis to lie with the government It would appear highly practicable-' for the government, through thD machinery oC the various jural municipalities, to undertake sinking good wslis in central locali- ties, within fairly ear-y reach of Quite. a number of farmers. The cost of these wells uouid be charged" against the municipality to bo paid off as any' other debt by mesus of taxation, of the farmers benefit ted. over a num- ber 01 years.
