The word "desert" nowadays is used with considerable caution. H may soon te -forgotten. The "deserts" of the pust were districts that received than about, twenty inches of rain- fall annually, and therefore were thought to be unfitted for agriculture. Utah, which receives a trifle more than twelve- inches' annually, belong- ed with the worst qf the desert-3. To- day a district that receives leas than ten inches of rainfall annually is said to be arid; if it receives more than ten inches, but less than twenty in- ches, It is semi-arid; if the rainfall is to bag: PURITy FLOUR Lethbridge AROUND.THE HORN G.

Hart, who were thrown thirty Jeet into tho field, were picked up unconscious and remained so during the night, but ire now out danger, the country is sub-humid; and the humid sections are those that receive au annual rainfall of more than thirty Inches. Leys than half a century ago it was believed that the humid sec- tion, only, had real agricultural .val- ue. Today the eyes of the nations are fixed upon "the as the lands of agricultural promise. Every continent includes immense tracts of arid and semi-arid lands. In the United States square miles, or J03 per cent, of the .whole area, receive an annual rainfall of less twenty inches. Mexico and Can- ada contain even larger proportions of semi-arid' lands. South Amerca; which is the.wettest.of the continents, includes great regions of low'rain-fall.' Australia, .which is larger than con- tinental .is 'two-thirds arid and semi-arid. Africa lias large 'deserts" in the north and. south: 'Asia ia essentially an arifl'and scmlari-d continent Even in large area-j are under a low" rainfall. In fact, one-fourth of the whole-sur- face of the eartli receives less tban ten inches of rainfall annually, and (s ..'id; and nearly one-third receives be- tween ten and twenty inches, and Is j semi-arm. Over: jiny-nve psr cent, of the earth'g surface, therefore, are to be classed' with the "deserts" of old.; Only a small .portion of this-em- pire of '-deserts" has tfeen reclaim- ed far the use of man.

Only an experience added to experience, did the understanding (tome to men that by proper methods of tillage, the small rainfall could.be stored In the soil, and because of ,tho wondrously fertile soil could produce a profitable crop without Irrigation. Thus WHS born dry-farming, the complement of Irrigation in the material redemption of the portions the earth that are under a low rainfall. Important as is the art of Irrigation, it can not hope to serve more than a small fraction of the arid area of the world. When .all the J waters in all the suitable rivers have been divert- ed for irrigation purposes not more than 'one-sixth, nt the outside esti- mate, the arid lands of the earth, can be reclaimed by irrigation. The remaining five-sixths, if reclaimed at all. must be reclaimed1'b'y the methods oi dry-farming. Not'more than one- tenth of the area of Utah can we ever hope to bring under irrigation. ]n dry-farming lies the ultimate hope of reclaiming tho "deserts" the earth. For that reason it has become of world-wide interest. As Ambassador James Bryea said publicly the other day, together with irrigation, it is probably the most important question before the nations. The modern origin of dry-farming lies in'Utah, and dates back to the efforts of the Utah pioneers between 1875. California, the North- west, the Great Plains and perhaps other sections later developed it in- dependently. It has been tried out so iong and on so many soils that there s no longer any question1 about its feasibility. Men are concerning them- selves ;now with the 'proper adapta- :Ions 'of dry-farming methods to the vast variety of.soils, climates and pre- Ipitation that occurs over the rainless sections of the earth. It is hoped that In .time all arid lands .may be brought under subjection; at the present time, the chief efforts are VlTjecled to semi arid conditions; aiv.an- nual rainfall between inches prevails, 'MORE, tiktf Everybody wants flavor is so good.

The old farms on the olc lan-Js, under present methods, are not yielding increased harvests. This is one of the reasons why every great nation Is seeking new lands on which to found colonies that can raise food- stuffs for the over-crowded portions of the earth. Since the humid sec- tions are fairly well occupied, the at- tention of the land-hungry nations has necessarily been focussed on the arid and semi-arid sections, as yet sparse- ly occupied. _. Who would have ventur- ed to predict a hundred years ago that, the great nations would war or threaten war with each other over the possession of such notably waste plac- es as the Libyan and Saha-ra 'Deserts, which include Tripoli, Algeria, the Sudan, Morocco, and other places that have been in the recent. limelight of international politics? Th0 making of gardens in the great American Desert by Brigham Young I and his associates, and in other great deserts by other noblo pioneers, lias proved that there Is virtue in the "desert." Science in her slow but certain way has shown that arid soils arc superlatively fertile. They arc the most' fertile in the world.
