The Association, In its alms and endeavors, figuratively fulfils the merciful errand of1 him who bring .water (o tie suffering thirsty. It alms to open-the sluice gates for the of Nature to spread over the dry lands and to make fertility where otherwise fertility. Is not alto- gether possible. In this Its mission is attuned to that of a hjgh ficial calling.. In the call for produc- tlon it alms at supplying the power whEch water furnishes to materially sid and to increase that production. In this It is doing not merely a local but a world's work. Irrigation Is a primitive industry- It is" as old as agriculture itself. It has proved Itself to be' the handmaid of agriculture from time immemorial, with the'.basic purpose of Increasing the productiveness of soils'by the ad- dition of water artificially supplied. Irrigation has its philosophy, the philosophy of altruism, without >'any 'selfish object or ambttlon, but with aim of beneSiting mankind. To Alberta the holding of the Irrigation Convention hie a. new and intensified Sneaning.- It Is a gosjel' of hope which vlt preaches, and, particularly in tie ex- perlenco of thgj district .which tiopea to Bee Irrigation on it as speedily as 'possible, it comes as a the. morel co-operation it gives to- wards making the project materialize. v So far as the Convention Itself goes, it comes under the most favorable, of auspices, in that it comes to speak not to the doubtful' nor to. the un- believing but to have learnt to what Irrigation means and haTeva firm faith in all that it will accomplish. It comes, In cir- cumstances, before an' entirely' sym- pathetic audience. The Western Canada Irrigation As- sociation ensured not only.of a 'hearty welcome bnt of a 'fnli' ap preciatlon of what It has' done, a thankfulness for the aim which actuates iti To the Association jrfnch is owed, .and by its labors much has been accomplished. It carries with it the best credentials, the sincere desire to aid agriculture by means whereby the non-prod active lands ba come productive and the less produc tire more productive. With what Irrl ration accomplishes It brings new Itfi and Interest into the homes of tha iadustty with all that it means la a1 national application. 11 points out that 'ruoro is needed, not only iu an educative sense but in encouraging measures to stimulate Individual agri- cultural efforts and to further indivi- dual enterprise. We hear a great deal of tariff poli- cies tor the encouragement of artifi- cial production In the- of manu: facture. The polity 'of protecting manufacturers, In us national assets, has exalted itself 'in the minds of 'some, so much so that the great and more important Indus- try of'agrlculture Jn the workshops of Nature has come even to be relegated to second place as it stands in the regard the artificial Industries are held. The National Policy does not place what Is intrinsically a national industry in the position whore it fhould be, but adds to tha handicaps under which it labors .by making the iiiiplemenis of husbandry more costly than they need'to be. TVith the stress placed oa mixed stock raising by the Min- ister of Agriculture, there are imposed obligations ,on Governments, FeA- eral-and Provincial, to aid in the en- couragement 'of these. Part of this encouragement lies !n irrigation poli- cies, tho only instruments, In by 25 means small or Insignificant where what IB most desired can be the more readily accomplished. Agriculture In .Canada has none too soon come to be placed-at its value, and its importance to the coun- try as a whole realised in the minis- terial utterance. It has its messags not only to farmers in general but to responsible authority which has in It the making of agriculture to conform o the uses It can accomplish "if serl- usly regarded In at least" saving tha ounlry five hundred millions annual- y. What agriculture Is as a national ndustry demands a recognition not merely In a Sentimental but in a prac- ical way imiho regard it claims. Do You Know? TODAY'S 1. What U 2. What Is -legal 3.

Where' there has been agricultural loss it alma at making agricultural gain. CANADA'S PIQ LOSS Dr. Tolmle, Federal Minister oi Agriculture, speaking at tho Canadian Club in Regina, made the statement that or one-fourth of' Canada's national debt, could be add- ed annually to the wealth of the coun- try by the adoption of more intelli- gent and enterprising methods of agri- culture, The one crop system he de- clared was doomed and mixed farm- ing with etock raising as its basis was destined to come into its own. While the acreage under crop in Can- ada had Increased during tha last do- cade- there had been a marked falling off in the yield per acre. The state- ment coming from a man such as Tblmio is not only an alarming one but' one which cilia Jar the most ser- ious attention not only anTongst the cnltivafors of the soil but among those to whom agricultural prosperity means-national prosperity, and there- by Individual prosperity. That a basic Industry such as agri- culture has not progressed In the measure ft should but rather has as eumed a decadent alagc, In the words of the Minister of Agriculture that "lha whole tendency has been down- is In tho natnro of an Indict- ment not merely on tho Individual farmer but on those who In a national ieniB are responsible for a national' Upton, xpected that new borrowing, It in the current yea :here will ba -a surplus of abou which can be applied, 1 a reduction of indebtedness."
