H Watson, Slate Dry-Farming Expert of Wyomin9, Wyoming In view of the put two yean of drought and the resulUnt failure or partial failure ot crops, some doubt as to the feasibility ot dry-farming in omlng has been expressed. It is a worthy fact that in those states where drj.farmlng has been practiced for a period of 40 years, the tyo jears of scanty precipitation been followed by no especially dis- astrous results Tbe reason for this fs not that they are more favorably locat- ed than Wyoming, but that they have reduced dry-ftrm nwthodi to a science. In fact, the Btit. of UUh, tor example, has a lower annual preclolU- tion than Wyoming.
