Humphries, Dominion Irami- ;ration Inspector here, bas just rc- eivwi a circular Irom the': department v.hicb) states' that Immigration will je restricted, in order that the men now in the country may get'the first hanee. at the jobs. The circular is as In order that there may be a clear understanding of the situation beg to inform you tha.t owing to Lhe overcrowded condition o! .the abor market and the consequent un- employment, the. present policy of Jiis deparemtnt. with im- nigrant arrivals, other than bona ide agriculturists and female domes- ic servants, is to reject, when under existing laws and regulations, that action can be legally taken. For over two years agriculturists and female domestic servants have been the only classes advised by the Canadian.''Iiiv- ernment to come to this country. On May 26, l'J14.'i this department by advertisement and otherwise in the British teles, and Continental Europe1, yarned intending ihiniigrante against to'Canada' at tie present time, and it is therefore felt that anything less than the strictest en- forcement of all restrictive immigra- tion regulations, would bs unjustifi- able and a hardship upon Hie unem- ployed already here. That a detained immigrant, or asking for a prr- mit to come forward, has a promise of employment, cannot properly he urged as a sufficient reason for his admission, if rftiectable, because if he secures work, it taking a posi- tion which otherwise might have been filled by some one of our present un- employed, .amongst whom every tradn and occupation is already represent- ed."

Pincher' Creek Rancher1 Sits Back and Gets 600 Bar- rels Every Day Pincher Creek, July 'lues day evening last the Plucher Creek Herald scribe was afforded the oppor tunity of seeing the latest Invention in the vicinity. On "Buffalo the property of Mr. Henry Becker, is a water wheel -which has been quite recently erected. Mr: Becker' staled that through hav Ing difficulty' in keeping tanks filled the suggestion was made to him bj Mr. Earl Cook to try a water wheel Mr. fell Inlo the scheme and in- leas than two days the ivheel, embedded In ,the swiftly run- ning .current of the South Fork ol the Old Man River, was pumping wat- er for the rate of 600 bar- ils-'kday. The pump is so arranged that the Water" pours back into the river when use. The scribe 'as tio ho'w the wheel was ..iade DO silld ih'the turbulent waters. But upon, Inquiry found that a break- 'ater .had-beeh built, which after the ..'hMl.vaa torn away. The scheme, and the carrying out at it IB .to Mr. Becker Cook, and it'seems that .a good'many others with 'water power running to. waste might follow their example ve'ry profitably. It impressed one, standins there on the banks of the river, that the water wheel was the finishing touch to this "country famed" artistic ranch. Mr. Becker Is also the proud possessor of'excep- tionally', fine crops, and oats this "year being, quite' remarkable. Mr. Hiinsen also has acres of wheat in. close proximlly to Buffalo Bancli which is well; worth a trip out to see. -Jl To Keep Skin AVliite Velvety, Wrinkle-Free C, M.

McDonald Knows How and Has Good There Are Others MONARCH FIELDS PROVE A SURPRISE Look far the Cvpidon Even Package Ahliough -it is atiniiUcd generally through Hie south that there are ten poor ci'Gi'-s. or rather fields that will make only very slight yields, to one good Etaml of grain, there are suffi- cient of, the latter to prove that south- ern Alberta can produce the goods even against the odds. Under average conditions, that is, tvhere there is an almndanc of those eheinies that work havoc in.the fields and over which -the farmer has no as the cut worm, execs-j give weed' growth, hail, damaging! winds, etc., good crops can be grown j no matter moisture condi-] tioiis may he. They will not be as j good as those grown on well moisten- ed land, but they will grow. I The present poor season lias -brought out many "valuable points in connec- tion with dry farming. Agriculturists in the south have been wondering- this whether there such a thing as dry 'land farming, whether crops :ould. he raised under the adverse conditions that exist this year. It has 'been proven conclusively that they can. j G. C; McDonald, manager of the j Miami Farm at New Dayton, "the man j who gets.a.crop.every came in from the morning. Mr. McDonald ia not the kind of man who boasts, but from his conversation the Herald learned that he -has lived up to his reputation, ihis year as lie did. ia 1910, and as he has done every year since the Miami farm was estab- lished. Mr. McDonald estates that he will have-two sections of. as good wheat as he lias ever -had. He expects a yield of from 30 bushels to the acre. This mean's that ho will get in the bushels of wheat. the Miami are also not so good as -in an average year, but there 'will be a. crop, and Mr. get enough from the few acres he has in to feed his eighty or ninety head of work horses through the winter. The Malrol farm IB In a .district where there are dozens of r-poor crops. Where there is one "good1 crop there are probably ten or twelve poor ones and Mr. McDonald says.that even on some ,of "the summer' fallowed land, the yields will nil But this cannot be laid up to the soil, or to the lac.k of moisture. Mr. Mc- Donald states that' it; is 'largely due to the fact that, cultivation has not tees sufficiently ,'deejp; or'thorough to give easy by means of os- mosis or capillary action, to the aufc surface moisture. Travellers along Hie Cardston line hav-e the same story to tell. Mr. F. D. Shaw returned this morning from 'Cards-ton, where he'.says there-is a general ton a of optimism. D. H. Jel- iff at Raley told Mr. -Shaw, that he had- the dry weather "beaten." 'Mr. J.eliff started in last -year to summer fallow, and has one of the crops this year that lie has ever had. Mr. Shaw noticed in particular the of good crops on the Irrigated fields. He accounts for this by tli'j Tsct that some of the farmers are too lazy to Irrigate properly, nnd some do not liow to irrigate properly.
