Professor E. H. L. Schwuri, of South Africa, spofco on the Kalahari and its possibilities. said thai South Africa, jear after year, was full cf starving men and animals as the result of drought, and he.propounded a scheme which aims at slopping up the gaps by which the great rivers en the north were carry- ing away to tha sea water that used (o be. conserved In the interior. The scheme would give square miles of irrigated land- in-place of the present rapidly spreading waste. A resolution was 'adopted .calling upon the Government to obtain ex- pert evidence on the feasibility cf tho scheme. The Alberta propositions are differ- ent from most of those advanced in other countries. With us we desire to bring 'rater to land already settled, where the farmers have invested their entire fortunes lu buildiugs, stock and implements. It .is not a question ot reclaiming land by irrigation and then campaigning lo get people upon It rather it Is a schema to retain tho settlers and enable them to produce Do You Know? SOME THOUGHTS ON SOIL DRIFTING Profi Jardlne's talk on soil drifting put faith and hope into every farmer who heard it. Soil drifting Is some- thing that can be stopped and stopped quickly. Kansas, which the Professor about from Intimate know- ledge; did It. even though its winds are heavier than those in Southern 'Albsrta. What strikes one most In the relation of the Kansas experience is the'.nesd for co-operation of all the farmers. The negligent farmer may go on in the old way and the wind -blows his soil over onto the farm of the neighbor, who follows'the meth- ods to prevent soil drifting.' It Is only I when all the farmers "work together i that the perils'of soil drifting will be j completely overcome. K might he wise ,to a law to punish the larmer, whose carelessness in farm- ing methc-ds does damage to the crop of the careful neighbor. As with soil drifting so with weeds.. It IB a uis- iouragement to the farmer, -who clears the weeds off his farm, to'find the man alongside of him allowing the weeds to go to seed and lo drift on-to his-clean farm. Co-operation on the part ot all the farmers is the sound remedy but If it cannot he ob- tained, then let us punish the negli- gent farmer. wealth by bringing available to them. water which is The Suggestion COX AND HARDING NOT LITERARY MEN "While hbth Hardlae Cox, the chief candidates for the United 'States presidency are newspaper publishers, the New; York Times says that neither of them'will add lo the line of literary presidents It may seem hard for a newspaper to admit tins, since both Cox and Harding have been editors and pro- prietors of newspapers.-- But frank- ness compels the admission that jour- nalism is one thing aud literature is They, sometimes touch, but seldom blend. A man of letters may be also a journalist, but-'is not the former simply .hecause he is the lair ter Sir Barrie once gravely Contended that the way in which journalist becomes a, literary man >s limply to cease being a journalist. This was evidently a whimsical ver- sion of his own experience. But there Is. no need'ot applying any of these Dice distinctions to either ot the two candidates for the Presidency. They are- confessedly not bookish men. They are not known as writers. Kei Iher of them has a style of dis- would care to he thought to have it They would bo fenown as plain men who just speak in tho best way they can mnu- 'tge, the thoughts that arise in them. In such respects, of course, they will be not unlike the general average of American Presidents. Yet is tho .nsalisr .0! literary qual- ity and appreciation of literature either Harding or Cox in the While House would mean a break with the immediate past. For within the past years the Times observes, the United Stales has had two Presidents, serving two terms, who had a fame as men, of letters. Roosevelt and Wilson are doubtless the most literary Presidents that coun- try has ever had. The only names that could bo compared with theirs Ihe Times thinks are Jefferson and John Quincy Adams. The author of Ihe Declaration of Independence certain- ly had a style. He wrole much and tyjok a keen Interest in science and education. that has been made to remove people out of the drouth areas, leaving he- hind them their investment in. farm improvements, without any effort to provide a solution of the drouth prob- lem, is ridiculous. When experts tell us that there is water for much of thu land and when experience proves that irrigated land can produce more greatly arid more steadily than dry land, there Is ho reason why it should not be availed of to the fullest extent. What Southern Alberta needs Is miied fanning and it can only ob- tain It in most of its area, through irrigation. Irrigation, provides tho hay and the pasture' fcr the maintenance of livestock. Mixed farming enables the soil lo be enriched rather Uian to be depleted in value, Sound business sense is with the movement for irrigation develop ment. A system that will make dry land worth five times as much' as I Is today, that will make it produclive every year, 110. matter whether then is 'drouth or not, should be encourag ed by our governments. As was point ed out in one of the addresses the Irrigation Convention, an Irrigat ed section last year produced a gros return of }54.71 an acre, while drj land alongside .of it produced abso lutely nothing. Surely It is good bus! ness to make unproductive laud pro- ductive every year and not In' W years only. Huron County has produced a stee which Weighs pounds.
