It has nn International bearing and must he viewed Irom the stand* point ot its offocl3 upon the food supply of tho allied conhlries. It should not rc-nuire any argument to support tho statement that-.,^n steer fattened in Iowa will supply more'beef to the allies than one going on short rations In Alberta. It may hurt our pride to see him go to Iowa to be fntleued, but that is a parochial sentiment, and parochialism should not enter into m.itters of such far reaching effects as this. This fact must be faced! vi�: that a gi'Oftt many stockmen in Albprtn must sell some of their cattle in order to bring the rest ot the herd through the winter. Many ot these animals will be mere feeders. The broader tho market for cattle of that kind, the higher the price will bo and tho fewer animals the stockmen will have to sell in order to meet Jils obligations. Now he may be forbidden to export these animals nr^ compelled to sell them locally for whatever he can got. but he cannot be conip>Ued to grow other cattle to take their places., On I the contrary many will sell everything second.' h7n'\hi7d7J:.HV^VaV^VngVon.!anromote8 new ttrenitk.

Some I had plowed in and ^ome left on the surface, but the supply is limited, and, as a result, what is left on the surface drags with the harrow to some extent. 1 also scattered straw on places, but it drags too with, the harrows. Both of these help considerably to prevent drifting, but more haa to be done. This season I intend to sow ahojit three to four pounds to the acre of rape seed, on the most exposed parts ot the summerittllow, about the last week in July. I intend to allow it to grow until killed by the frost. The only weeds we have here are annuals. These, would also be killed j*ith the rape. This growth of rape and weeda provides a means of liolding the snow and at the sahie time practically prevents drifting soil in the spring, because I would harrow none until the wheat is up and the drifting season practically over. This may look like poor farming, but I find we have no time lo cultivate the fallow after the latter part of July, as we require a considerable quantity of hay, and in this part of the country we-begin about July 2oth. Kven then harvest ie on us before wo have' sufficient hay> up. It seems to me that nature points to some such plan as I have outlined in the creeping cedar we find on the poorer landjof the prairie where the soil drifts considerably. The cedar anchors Its roots on the firmer sbl^ls and ^preade itself as a blanket over the sand, protecting Jt from the wind. Soil and seed find their way into^the clefts ot its ^branches; the seed takes root and grows, and v>-aen tho plant is established tho cedar gives way and dies, giving its life, as it were, that something more useful might grow. . My Idea of using rape to prevent drifting of summer-fallow gives the plan of nature as seen In the 'creeping cedar. When the wheat has become established In the .spring, we can cultivate with light harrow, doing little damage to the young wiieat, but at the same time breaking up the hard surface of the soli, and killing the growth of many of the young weeds whose roots are not nearly deep as the wheat. -The whole question from kllllri'g weeds and conserving' moisture on the one hand to the retaining ot soli and keeping it from drifting on tho other, la so complicated that It ^xe? quires for Its solution more than( the Intelligence and conceit of the city clerk, who is always ready to give tlie farmer advice, which were it of any UBe*inight be stgred up tor use in case ot fuel 'famine.
