Piche The difference between good farm- ing and poor farming is the differ- ence between profit and loss, between success and failure. And as the wealth o! a nation cepends upon the wealth of its agricultural class, it behooves any government to adopt any methods that wil tend to im- crease the wealth of me farmer. There is no better way to help the farmer to farm than to give him a i practical demonstration as to me- thods and results. This is the work of the experimental farms that have been established at different points throughout, the country and one of these points is Leihbridge. The experimental farm is not a model farm by any means although a great many people confuse tho ideas and duties of the two. As name would indicate, the experiment- al farm is a place where experiments are made to determine results under different conditions and from these results to determine what 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 B. 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- tem known as irrigation and also by the system known as non-irrigation or "dry fanniing." No other station conducts experiments under the form- er svstem and hence no station has W. H. FAIRFIELD Director of the Experimental Farnn pied. Every care has been taken to economize space and labor as well as to provide light and ventilation. The loft, with a capacity of one hundred tons of hay, is free from cross the roof being supported by a rupport scheme, which very much ir.creases the capacity of the loft. An implement shed with workshop and storeroom above was also "on structed and all enclosed in a 'arge corral, presenting a neat and appearance. A neat cottage is vided for the foreman, W. C.

Apple trees have been but sparingly planted throughout the district, but all those having them report that any wos that have been set out for a suffi- cient length o! time have fruit set on them at the present time. These facts givo special interest to the work that is being done'at the experiment- al farm along these lines. A varietal test of strawberries consisting of forty-four varieties has been inaugu- rated this spring. This will doubt- less determine a number of varieties that will be especially adapted our soil and climate. An extra early and an extra late variety added to the list that are already being grown in the district will lengthen tht bearing season considerably. A large number of various kinds of raspberies, both black and red; cur rants, red, white and blijck; and goosebetires are being tested. Two large apple orchards have been start- ed, four hundred apple being set out permanently and will be add- ed to each season zo that by the time the windbreaks are sufficiently grown, a very large number of hardy var- ieties will be under test. The fruit as with everything else, will be tested on both the irrigated and non-irri- gated land' Ornamental trees and shrubs are being given careful atten- tion.

Property C. F. HARRIS Advocate, Notary Public (From Friday's Daily.) When the Pork Commissioners re- cumed their session yesterday after- noon, J. B. Piche, of Piche Miron, gave evidence. He told of having some difficulty in getting hogs hav- ing to go as far as Edmonton for them. He ascribed the lack of hogs to the fact that the farmers in this district would rather sell their wheat than raise hogs. In order to increase the growing of hogs a sure market and a better price are necessary. Farmers can make no money on five cents a pound. His firm does not do any curing now but buy all American Tiork ,as the people will not buy the Canadian cured pork. The difference is in the curing process as Canad- ian fresh pork is as good as Amer- is etter than corn fed. He thought that if a factory were established here so as to guarantee a market and a better price, the farmers would raise them. But just now he does not think there are enough hogs in the province 10 keep a factory going a month. Even Grii fin of Winnipeg cannot get enough to Weekly Free Press aad PrAiric Fmer.

A marginal planta- tion of three rows of trees is to be planted around the entire-farm. Parr of these are already planted and th-- balance will be put in next spring. Considerable work in forestry will eventually be attempted including various plantations for windbreaks, wood lots for thti testing of various there is bsst- time to sow and a best- amount to sow and it is the work of the experimental farm to determ- ine these points. Plots have been sown two weeks apart from the 15th of July to December. Last year the grain sown August 15 and 30 gave the best results. As to rate of seedinig per acre, a series of plots were plant- ed beginning with fifteen pounds of seed per acre and increasing by one peck per acre until two bushels seed was reached. The results these seedlings cannot be known un- til threshing. These two experiments will be continued for a number of years so that results from average years can be obtained, thus making the data trustworthy. All of the Alberta Red grown in Alberta has a slight mixture of other grains with it. not, pnrwgh to affect the grade, but sufficient to hurt it from a seed grain standpoint. To ob- tain seed from good strain of ments were made last summer with the Kansas Agricultural College to supply us seed from hand-selected seed from 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 fanners in the province will be able to obtain gratis small quanti- ties of this pure seed for trial. Winter and sprinlg wrieat are be- ing grown on soil given various me- thods of cultivation, the Campbell system with various modifications entailing less work being given thorough investigation. It will be of interest to farmers to. know that one of land is being cultivat- ed exactly as Mr. Campbell instructs, lie having examined the fi-ld person ally within the last month. About 200 Plots There are in all on the rarm near- ly two hundred plots of grain con sisting of various varieties and the same varieties under varying condi- tions of rate of seed P'.'f acre, date of planting, etc. Bach variety is tested or. the irrigated as well as on the non irrigated land, the farm, in fact, being two distinct experi mental stations with each test dupli cated. The same treatment is being given oats, barley, rye and peas as is given wheat. To hay crops considerable att ntion rigate a given area of land is not sufficient. To accumulate data rela- tive to the actual 'amount of vratAT that is required to irrigate various j crops, a measuring device has beenj installed on the farm. This consists j of a wier. Connected with this is an automatic register which records the depth of the water flowing over the wier at all times. From this record the actual volume of water used may be readily calculated. These measur- ments will be taken year after year and will in the aggregate afford val- uable data from which an intelli- gent judgment may be formed as to the actual amount of water that is r.eally required to irrigate our farms with existing conditions of climate and soil as found in the district. The farm is placed within easy ac- cess o! the railways so that the farm- ers of the country may easily go to visit it and see for themselves the results of the tests that are being made.
