EGYPTIAN COTTON IS RESTRICTED AH Phases of Agriculture Discussed at Convention The approaching convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association at Nelson. 11.C. raises the qnes-tion. "To what extent is the dry farmer interested in irrigation?" There lias been a tendency in the past, even among farmers, to think of dry farm-aug and irrigation as being, in a sense, rival modes oS ngrictilture. It is of the titniost importance to the deve'.op-ment of'Western Canada, where both kinds of farming are practiced on the largest scale in America, that tlieir independence shBiiH be properly understood. Had Western Canada been first settled by fanners from irrigation countries the history'of agricnitnre in these provi�'��s would iiavo been very different. As it is. our first settlers, and evea most of our settlers to the 3>re3ent day, were from Kastern Canada, Sie Ii:astern Staler, or �those parts of Europe where irrigation is .not employed. They came to Western Canada with no knowledge of irrigation. They have learned dry farming from the settlers in the semi-arid regions of the Western States, and they are now- learning irrigation largely from the same source. The Western Canada Irrigation Association recognizes that the relationship between dry farming and irrigation Is a very close one indeed, and for that reason a considerable space on the program is devoted to dry farming. At the convention which is to bo held at Nelson on ,luly 24, 25 and 2t), Hon. W. R. Motherwell, Minister of Agriculture in Saskatchewan, and a dry farmer of many years' experience, is to give an address on 'The Principles of Dry Farming." Jlr Motherwell was president of the association a year ago, and was presiding officer at the convention iield at Maple, Creek. Saskatchewan, where his practical experleSce as a farmer contributed greatly to the interest of the meetings. The officers of the association are also 3elighted to have ii letter from Dr. Samuel Fortier, chief of the irrigation division of the United 'States Department of Agriculture, stating that he will probably be able to attend the convention at Nelson, and that if so he will be very glad to de-. liver an address. The agriculturists .of Western. Canada are under con-f siderable debt to the officials of the I.Tlnited States Department of Agric-.^ulture and of the United States re-,clamation service who have always ijeen most generous la bringing to (r------------------ h LEMON JUICE ' t TAKES OFF TAN II - 2 Girls!
