They have pendcnf on this river for. water for their stock. The farmers con-, tend that, according to a .license held by the P'ovinclal Govern, ment from the Federal Govern- ment, water could be turned into the Little Bovy from the High Rivsr. In spite of the attention of the Qovernment being celled to thi Itatt V th. Liitle Bow tbe "Thafe'ira one thouund Mttltr aloni Llttie Sow and the' puMl.tfn with them is critical. The work necesiary for bringing water Into -the Little Bow Is estimated to cost S3.0CO. The farmers bitterly resent the action of the provincial Governnent in throwing responsibility for the worki necessary for getting the water on .to them without pro- ceeding directly in the matter. The present, dry weather h.is made conditions serious for the farmers along the Little Bow, and the drylng'up of the river consid- erably aggravates tlie situation. Two hundred horses and cattle bringing the total to 3CO, were taken out of the .district on Sat- urday, owing to wapt of water.
