Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHtRIDOr, ALIA., "FRIDAY, JULY J4..IMI PACE FIVE OUR EXPERIMENTAL FARM Where the Minnesota Editors are Being Entertained Today The difference between good farm- ing and poor .fanning is the differ- ence between profit and loss, between euecess and failure. And us tho wealth of a nation depends upon the wealth of it's agricultural class, it any government to adopt any methods that wil -tend to im- creuse the wealth of ihc farmer. There is no better way -to help the firmer to farm than to give him a practical demonstration as to me- thods and results. This the work of the experimental farms that have been established at different points throughout the country and one ol these points is Lethbridge. The experimental farnv is not a model farm by means although xa great many people confuse thf ideas and duties of the two. As name would indicate, the experiment al farm is a place where experiments jiro inside to results undi.-r different .conditions' and from these results to determine Vvh'at are the best conditions to have. The results of these experiments are then passed on to the farmers in various ways and they know without having to make the trials for themselves what are the best methods to adopt to get the maximum of returns for their la- bor and expenditure. Among the- experimental stations of Canada, that at Lethbridge holds a. unique position in so far that on it are "conducted experiments in two distinct systems of farming. Here the land is cultivated under the sys tern known as irrigation and also by the system known as non-irrigation or "dry farmiing." No other station conducts experiments under the form cr system and hence no station has W. H. FAIRFIELD Director of the Experimental Farm a model being so constructed as to make the most of the space occu- pied. Every care lias been taken to economize space and labor as well sis to provide light and ventilation. The a capacity of one hundred tons of ruiy, is free from cross the roof being supported by :i support scheme, which very much increases the capacity of the loft. An implement shed with workshop and storeroom above was also "on strueted all enclosed in a largo corral, presenting a neat and tidy appearance. A neat cottage is pro vided for the foreman, W. 0. ed beginning with fifteen pounds of seed per acre and increasing by one pc'ck per aere until two bushels of seed was reached, The results of these seedlings cannot be known un- til threshing. These two experiments will bt- continued for a number of years so that results from average years can be obtained, thus making the data trustworthy. All of the Alb'-rta Red grown in Alberta has a slight mixture of other grains with it, not enough to affect the grade, but. sufficient lf> hurt it from a seed grain standpoint. To ob tain sied from a pure and specially good strain of seed grain, arrange incuts were made last summer witl the Kansas Agricultural College to supply us seed frotr; -hand-selected seed frum two strains of Turkey Red, more popularly known in Canada as Alberta Red. One of these varieties is known as Kharkof. Forty or fifty acres were planted with this seed and farmers in.the, province will be able- to obtain gratis small quanti ties of this pure seed for trial.

His summer clothing was suddenly out of style. This storm, however, was exceptionally early. It is officially that it damag- ed the yields ten per cent. But Mr. Bowman's fields ranged from forty to sixty buslu-ls of wheat to the acre, and a harvest like that offsets many a little snow flurry ev- en in September. In truth the eight inch snow of last September was so exceptional that it created a great sensation and has been worked to a frazzle bv Americans disposed to SEALED TENDERS will be receiv- d by the undersigned until five o'- lock p. m., August 6th, TJ08, for the erection of a brick fire hall for the City of Lethbridge.

It has beer, sown successfully from July to December and with varying amounts of seed from a "volunteer" seeding to tro bushels to the acre Still the farmers are realizing tha portion owing to the fact that it is becoming the staple crop of the ir rigated farms of the district.
