Tiie native iionie of the. Russian thistle is in South-eastern Kus-sia and Siberia. In that region the I climate is usually annual precipitation ranging five to se- vente'-n incites. Alkali soils suited to the growth of the saltworts, of which the .Russian thistle is one, are abundant. The plains are swept by winds which break off the mature plants in the long distance fall and carry them for Any country having conditions to those ex- isting in South-eastern Russia is well Adapted to the growth of the Russian thisle. It prefers a high, dry soil and is s-'ldoin found growing in the vi- cinity of sloughs.

In all countries where the Russian thistle ha? been found it has been observed that in seasons with light rainfall and during which the land has not been properly cultivated, fa- vorable opportunities are presented for its rapid growth with the result thai it does considerable injury."

Methods of Control Tiie Russian thistle, being an an- nual, is reproduced only by Us seed, and if ti plant is cut off close to the ground or pulled up it will give no further trouble. Tho seeds arc of Sow vitality, and very few. if any, vill germinate after years. Conse- quently if plants can be kept from seeding two years in succ-ession the thistle can be coTiipletely des- troyed. Method value of a good .-.ummorfallow as a. weed exterminator cannot, be-overestimated. When sum- merfallowing is practiced if any of the old thisic plants remain on the ground over winter they should be i rukod up and burned to destroy the they may contain, and prevent the possibility of the implements be- coming choked up by the.coarse bran- ch' s which render their work ineffec- tive. Disk and harrow the land as ear- ly as possible to germinate the seeds an.1 start the plants growing. When tlv plants are young double discing and harrowing will kill them except in oases where the land is very dry, when those implements might not --ntirely satisfactory, but if they i 'ai! tlv. use of a broad share culti- vat-ir will always be effective in cutt- ini off and killing the weeds. The operation of discing and harrowing should be repeated as frequently as possible until about the 15th of June when it is time to plow. In every packer at the close of each day, or half day, as it is plowed, and then har rowed. If 3. packer cannot be procur- ed a heavy drag harrow should be used instead. Surface cultivation with the disk and drag harrow shout be practised, as often as possible, es peeially after a. rain, during the re mairider of the season. Sumerfallow ing is also practiced to conserve mois ture. In those parts of Alberta where the Rusian thistle is common the annual precipitation seldom exceeds 17 inches and in order to get gooc yields it is necessary to summerfal low at least once in three years. The methods of cultivation advised in this bulletin for the destruction of weeds will also enable the soil to hold more moisture than if left in a loose anc open condition. Subsurface packing brings the particles close together anc the surface cultivation forms a mulch preventing evaporation. CARMANGAY TO BE New PLACED ON MARKET Townsite Will Be Sold Soon- Its Beautiful Situation Calgary, June new towusite on the new Calgary to Leth- bridge line is to be placed on the market by the Canadian Pacific on July 20 next. Carmangay is the name if the town, and Mr. C. W. Carmau, after whom the town is named, was in the city yesterday. Mr. -Carman is very enthusiastic over the prospect of the new town, which is already well supplied with business houses of all kinds. "There is not prettier spot in Al- said Mr. Carman to an Al- bertan reporter yesterday. "The town is situated on township 32-13-23, on the banks of the Little Bow river, which at this point comes round in a loop, one end of which is only sep- arated from the other end by a strip of land 300 feet wide. The peninsu- la made by this loop contains about 80 acres of land, which is being re- served for a park, .and the town is on the bank overlooking the park and the river. The bank at this point is very high, and the view is unsurpassed. "Tlie railroad is already within four miles of said Mr. Car- man, in response to a question put to him. Eight cunips are at work, and the grading will be finiashed by July. that it will be only a matter f a short time before the whistle of the railroad engine will be heard, as truck laying will be commenced as soon as the big stec-1 bridge at Leth- bridge is completed, and at the rate this work is progressing July should see the last rivet in place.' Afr. Carmen roughly estimated that ibout per cent, more acreage was under crop this year- thiin was culti- vated last year. The Carmangay Farm Co., of which is the head, have acres under crop, sown with winter and spring wheat and oats. Mr. H. Case returned Saturday rom a trip to the Arrow Lake Or- chard Go.'s lands at Arrow Lake, B. and is most enthusiastic In his >raisc of that country. He states that wild strawberries are ripe and the tame ones will very shortly be on the market. Tho cherry trees are daded with cherries about the size of small marbles and" tho apples arc, c-il on tho trees, while goose- I berries and ciirrants are nearly full size, although everyone there says the season i.s three weeks late. The wea- ther was line during the trip and he found everyone loud in praise of the country. He says the Arrow Lake Orchard Co.'s lands are equal to any he saw in the country, it seems to the universal opinion that there is more doing where the com- pany own liiprls than any other place. The trip was most enjoyable, and he found a place in which he hopes to one day make his home, as he enjoyed better health while than he has had for many years. At the recent annual meeting of the Quebec branch of the Dominion Alii- nnce it wns stated that there were case when plowing is done where the more municipalities in Quebec under Russian thistle is present the land should bo pa eked with a subsurface. local apt ion by-laws than in any other province. District News GRASSY LAKE NEWS Grassy l.ake, June very en- joyable time was spent at the ice cream, social which was arranged by the Ladies' Aid of the Methodist church in Perry hall on Friday night Rev. Percy G. Sutton presided ami in welcoming the guests explained that while the gathering was held in the interests of the church, it was also for the purpose of affording an opportunity for the people to get better acquainted with one another. The church of -Jesus Christ recogniz- ed the fact that God had made of one blood all the nations of the earth gnd these social meetings would help to enlarge that spirit of brotherhood which was already marked a feature of our Western life. The program was interesting and varied. A very pretty item was the flag drill by the girls from the school They had been well trained by their teacher, iiiss Kitson, and went through the exercises very -creditably making a charming appearance upon the platform. Duriog the evening ice cream, cake, fruit and lemonaxle were served at frequent intervals ami full advantage taken of the opportunity to have a merry chat or to talk over the fair prospects of our growing town and district. The program was as fol- lows selection by the Mine Instru- mental trio guitar) Messrs Shear, Cameron and Walker song, "Sing me to Mr. Buck gramaphone selections by Mr. Wiiken flag drill by the chil- dren selection (instrumental) Miss Galvin and Mr. Rygg.; interval for refreshments aad gramaphone selec- tions selection by the Mine Instru- mental trio selection (piano) Miss G-alvin gramaphone selections, Mr. Wiken promenade under the direc- tion of J.

From both a social, and financial point of view the gathering was eminently success- ful, and we think this will rank as tho first of many happy times in Grassy Lake in connection witto -the Methodist church.
