Anderson, M.n.g.r LOCATION OF AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE .Senator Talbot Presents Strong Case For Its Separation From University City THE CASE OF PEARCE'S (Macleod Advertiser.)

Dear Sir 'people of the cities of Strathcona and Edmonton, the professors in the university, the uni- versity senate and at least some of the members of the execu. council of the legislature seem uetermined i that our proposed, agricultural col- j are tiie biggest things about the in lege shall be placed at Strathcona I stitution. apart. Fact 5. The case of the Wisconsin agricultural college is also cited as an -instance of a successful agricul- tural college united with the state university. It is true the institutions are united and it is true that the ag ricultural college is a success. do not have to look far for the caus of the success. Ifcre the agricultura interests and the agricultural men and under the same management as j 3abcock, signed petition has been sent to the xious to know what is going to hap- offieials of the company, praying that pen to them when the new diversion jtjie line Macleod to Pearce's be of the line from Lethbridge is com- i maintained for shipping purposes.

As a practical farmer, and one who has -devoted a good deal of time to f educational matters as well. I de- sire to draw the attention of the members of the legislature and the i in- i teresting facts, so that before any 1 money is voted for this object, we i may all be in a position to consider the question on its merits. Fact 1. The most successful agri- cultural college on the Xoith .Ameri- can continent today is the Ontario Agricultural college at Guelph in a separate institution. It is located about fifty miles from the nearest i university and is not at all connect- ed with the university .except for ex- amination purposes and the conferr- ing of degrees. Fact -2. During last winter the pro- j fessors of the Alberta university gave addresses in different places and tried to create a sentiment in favor of the two institutions combin- For this purpose they cited in- j.stances whore the agricultural col- jk-ge was said to be united with the j university and was a success. One instance givra by them was the state 'of California. Now, I WOuM not like to .say that in this case the facts do say that those who made the i statement did not take the trouble Such agricultural men a Russell and Henry have made Wisconsin what she is. Fact 6. Sir William McDonald, o j Montreal, has donated millions o to 3IcGili university. The j departments of chemistry, physics, etc.. etc., at that institution owe i much to his generosity. Experience, I however, taught him that though he was spending enormous sums of mon- ey, he was not reaching the sons and daughters of the farmers as he would like and we find him establishing the college at St. Anne de Bellevue. i If Sir William McDonald and Pro- fessor Robertson thought they could benefit the farmers of Ontario and Quebec by doing so. they would have started their college at Montreal and affiliated it with McG-ill university. But they did not do so. The college i of St. Anne de Bellevue is not con- nected with any university except'for i examination purposes and is out in ithe country. j Any practical man who will take the time to consider the matter can (easily find the causes of the general failure of agricultural colleges that are closely affiliated with universities and located in large cities. A course at such a college has a tendency to drive our sons and j slaughters from the farm. Few young ruijirr women can spend three or rour years of very impression- ;able time of their lives in a large city and then contentedly go hack to I the .farm. There is a t JLtencv al- ready for our young men and younir i j women to go to the city. If you I think, as I do. that a rural life' is best, physically. and mor. I ally, we should discourage, rather i than encourage, the movement. When tho agricultural college is under the same management as the university and along with it. we de- prive all but a rare few of the sons I mind, we want these young men and women back on the farm when the course is through. A very limited amount of time in comparison should be given to history, literature, geog- raphy and grammar. None at all can be spared for the dead or foredgn lan- guages. For chemistry, botany and j ireology. only so much shows tho. j relation of plant and animal life to 1 soil. Deal as fully as possible j with grains, tmd grasses, and trees i and shrubs, farm conveniences and beautiful homes. A knowledge of farm implements and their care, farm weeds and their destruction would be worth millions of dollars every year to Alberta. See that every student has a knowledge of the different classes and breeds of farm animals, their care, uses and feeds, with a slight knowledge of their structure and common remedies for the more common diseases. I The students should board at the college. The institution should be as homelike as possible. The pro- ducts of the farm, connected with the t CANADIAN BANK OF CC OFFICE. B. B.

It is quite true that in the state of California the agricultural college was connected with the uni- versity at one time. But the union was not a happy one.
