The Water Question Again Among other things 'which will bo discussed at the meeting i.ill be- the water auestion. The mayor sajs he. Is open lo criticism In Ibis ques- tion, but the financial strin- gency, vlilon, he declares, is norse than citizens know. Generally speak- ing, the citizens who have expressed Ihclr opinion on the matter, agree that the city has a financial problem of Importance to solve, but think Iho council should have pat forth an cy- tra effort to raise the money to put the waterworks system lu such sbapo that Ihe water lower In Is'urih l.clh- bridge could be used, They content! lhat Ihe council could- ha'.o gone much farther than it has rtonn in protecting property.

Last year Southern Alberta's barley Acreage was practically doubled. The Piicc, however, did not advance ma- terially er that of other jears. and most of the barley grown went fcr feed.

MR, COOK DISCOVERS INTEREST- ING FLOURISHED ON HIGH SPOTS Winter sown last September, and measuring feet in height today, is what K, J. Cook boasls, Mr, Cook brought in a spray on Saturday night, and it was seen by the Herald man today. The tunny part of It is that the whole patch is oa high dry grouud, the higher the knoll the higher the rye. Thi? Is a surprising fact, and one ivich may lead to valuable eutis. Roth wheat and Tie were sown on this high patch of ground on Mr. Cook's farm. The wheat did not grow, but the rye did and with the result indicated. From which may be drawn tho conclusion tbat 'ryo has a great economlr. value In Ihe scheme of mixed farming. High lild fcr.olls may be utilized lo 'advanfage, anil as all good farmers know, ol rye Eor pasture purposes is next to alfalfa tu value. This partic- ular patch was grown for seed and was pastured until late this soring. Fatten Hoas in the Field Mr. Cook has a scheme up WE sleeve that he believes will prove a woaderful success. He proposes to sow rye on some of his high 'ground, and In the spring turn in weaned pigs to the time of per acre. one feeding of siiorts per day, and u-iih water and eheJter, Mr. Cook thinks ho can fatten them to perfec- tion without letting them out of the field. He claims that tbc. rye noulj not bo eaten1 down, and lhat the nigs would thrive on it until in prime con- dition for the marfcet.

Mr. YYfUliiEnnre comes direct front Ihe ceuirt-s of New England, an4 has bf-cn a student of wool jrades tor many couEequently is in ft position to preheat thti buyers sitla of the situation in plausible form, and, the sheepmeu uiH certainly eoyono who can bliow them h get Letter prices. Wool Exhibits at Prof, Arfcell is bandlir-g (he lion eLd of tho game, and will hava wool exhibits at the fairs in the east and west. These exhibits consist ot grades and sorts of wool grown in Canada, ani ihe intermediate products of manufac- ture. Tho exhibits are accompanied; liy d emo ns i r aliens on grading, sort- ing and packing, by Ihe government experts. Pure Bred Stock Gifts Mr. Arkell is also working on the organization of farmers' societies for the securing of loans of pure bred slock from the government, and ex- pects to cooperate with boards of trade throughout iho province to this end. The government, Mr. Ar- kell, is anilous lo aid the farm- ers in their mixed (arming program, and wish every organization to have just the kind of slock thty- iv Tbo 'otilr coal lo tho main tec en re of the stock, and in tho case. of pure bred stallions, the suraiice. Farmers wishing any licular breed of iifjrses, cattle (dairy or beef) sheep or hogs, will be sup- plied with them through their eties, so it IB up to them to get busy and cooperate and hustle. About Alberta Sheepmen Speaking of 'the wool sit' udUon. here, Mr. Arkell said that tha. ;overnmeut. was always willing to atJ them in whatever way they could, but that the main source of help must, be the sheepmen themselves. Only. so far as they cooperate among them- selves, can they liopo lo improve con- ditions here. Mr. Artel 1 thinks that" the cooperative spirit Is lacking' among the sheepmen here, but tbat they are very progressive in their ideas. Co-oncration is the only thing that will cement their interests, that is up to them. After leaving 'this district Mr, Ap. kell will go to the YermiUkm district visiting the northern wool growers' asn Eociations- It is claimed that sheep in the north: exceed in the south in num- liers and Mr. Arkell will try to get a definite and correct census. To do this is will be neccEsary for him ti go over tho imports for the last year, and get the slaughter records from, the packing houses, tt will be interesting to note tha results ,and especially the number ol imported that were retained for ing, as the charge has be err mado that sheep from acroas the were -unfit for breeding Mr. Arkell had a conference 'witii Allen .lack, ol the Exhibition board Ibis afternoon and arranged to liava space reserved at the exhibition for June 26th when exhibits will be shown and demonstrations given, On account of the early dales 'ot tho I.etabridge fair, it is somewhat doubtful If the entire exhibit. here, but Ihe government men vJJl do all in Iheif cower, to have Leth- bridge Included In Oie itinerary "One ol the matters, which-receiv- ed some attention from tion when tbe market question being discussed the likely effect of the new tariff on coal, and It'was generally conceded IhM, the tariff Is adopted, Southern Alberta coal mines will sery soon corral the Mon- tana maiket."
