FACTS ABOUT IRRIGATION The department of the Interior have recently published a report by Mr. John Stewart, Commissioner of Irrigation, dealing with, the recent development of irrigation in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Cormuissioj cr stales that the benefit to be dcriv made all arrangements for the funera and planted Chauncey out in the ce- metery where the flowers bloom on his grave, the weeping willow sighs and the meadow lark sings swee songs over the home of the dead.

OUR POINT OF VIEW 'The Monetary Times gives "Every- thing looks splendid in the SVest; but for heaven's sake don't tell them" as the expression of an Easterner just returned from the prairies. No need to tell us. We all know it. If the ed from irrigation has been demon- present conditions continue the West ill overshadow the rest' of the couia- ry this year. We will soon know whether Taft ia he Republican presidential candidate lominee or not. The convention is on at Chicago, it looks like the Sec- of War being chosen on the irst ballot. stratcd within the past few years and points to the fact that while five years ago there were 1159 ditches in use, with a total length of -169 miles and capable of irrigating some 000 acres, there are now 272 ditches with a total length of 922 lulu's aud capable of irrigating some acres. 4 Among the larger enterprises to which the Commissioner more partic- Theodore ularly refers are the canals of the Southern Alberta Railway and Irri- gation Company in Southern Alberta This company have constructed a ca- nal system of over 100 miles, besides some thirty miles of laterals, and' have over one million dol- lars and there have sprung up within the district watered by their system several prosperous towns, each o which is the centre of a considerable farming district which was formerlj devoted solely to grazing. Tarticu lar reference is made to the beet-su gar industry which has been develop- ed in the vicinity of Raymond, Alber ta, as a result of irrigation. A fac- tory has been constructed at a cost of half a million dollars aud some tons of beets grown in the district were used in 1906, for which, an average price of per ton was paid. Among the larger individual works constructed in the Province of Sas- katchewan is the Enright and Strong ditch near East End. This system takes water from the Frenchman riv- er and irrigates some acres and is reported by the Commissioner to be a model one to be built by pri- vate enterprise. Mention is also made .of the Cana- dian Pacific Company's irrigation project for the reclamation of a con- siderable portion of a tract of 000 acres lying along the line of their railway between Calgary and Medicine Hat. This was a few years ago considered fit only for grazing, but by meaas of irrigation has been found fit for" agriculture This, is said to bo the "largest irriga- tion enterprise in the world, although perhaps not the most costly. The cost of the complete works is placet at something over There is printed within the report, in the form of an appendix, a report of the proceedings of the "First Ir- rigation Convention, of Western Cana- da" at Calgary in July, 1907, which contains much useful informa- tion concerning irrigated farming. both in th A colored minister for a West Vir ginia church, on the presentation of-; "Brudder" Johnson's baby for. tism, took occasion to couipliuttut his Hock, saying: "Bredren oh de congregation, It do gib me pleasure to see me b'r udders calling their children after the pre- cious stones what am named in Holy Writ.

McKELVIE 8 McGUIRE'S OLD STAND 11 i 11 i in I M 11 ii 111 i 111 Hill 1.1 ll u ill II ll The-following clipping is from a speech by Dr. Jas. W. Robertson be- fore the Agricultural Committee of the House of Commons. have come to a stngc in the history of said Dr. Rob- ertson, "when there is not only a need for advancement in agricul- ture, but a chance for it as has never occurred in the history of the race. Up till now, agriculture has been a matter of muscular labor, with only a little intelligence thrown in. In the Maritime Prov- ince there has been no progress in agriculture for tfrrty years, either in yield per acre, or other -ways. The truth is not always popular, and it can only be with regret that I belicx-e sec tho deterioration of the rural population. You cannot take out of a population the pro- gressive, forceful, young men with- out deterioration." As to the need for advnncement in agriculture such statement is only a truism with regard to any industrial art or occupation. The general sta- tus of an.y art is always below ideal and below even a realized status in particular cases. In showing how agriculture may be improved or in showing the need" of improvements, Dr. Robertson is displaying- the qual- ities of leadership which have already won him distinction. In his reffret at the loss of strong from the farma his experience is not dif- ferent to what that of others will continue to be with regard to the same matter. The daiuonstration of the applications of science to the art of agriculture will in time give dig- nity to agricultural pursuits and farm .work will engage the attention of skilled and strong men. On the other hand there Is a constantly op- erating tendency to deplete the coun- .try of strong men.
