It will tHkrt Boino three or rour jcna'B to get thq plan In openi.-lion aji> that there will be a contmercial HiipDif, but once oBtabllEiked there will bu no; question as to the qudllty of the Alberta seed gruln. Tlie entire iiropusal waa outlined by Oeputy Minister of Agrlculttire CrBlK, at ii.nieoling of tho fairs' delegatOB and those who .WHre'attondlnB tho Beod fair at ISdmonton', Morototore with tho necessity of the country the deparlniont has buen devoting its special attoiitlbn to the Introductions of pedigreed live stocR Into tho province, but In order to have a well balanced production, and In order t(j take advantage of the natural (.fBcllltlCH of Altjcjta to produce clean and perfect seed, this scheme of pedl-Krebd' seed is being Introduced thiR year. Outside of Sweden, the scheme is the ,mgst comprohonslvo In the world;. *t .^j' The Department's Plan To begin with It la considered that Alberta has the natural advantag'i second to no other part of the world to produce seed grain and grasses In order ;that there may he a general and detintto'.schonio to provide seed for the wpi'ld'B market, the department 6t agriculture haa organized the following plan. Tho scheme is to produce seed on a big scale and stand-ardtze II. Although the department started two or three year.s ago to work out the scheme It is just being brought before tlie public. � "The ,vali�|V'.^f vision."

The department is offering two special prizes also at this seed fair to the firsttand second prize winners which will jpartlally cove;- the cost of the grain that they rtay huy.. .Mt��;hcd to the conditions of these specials Is ^ foun the proviso that in entering tor them the winners must agree to purchase * '* cents a |,tho seed offered and to comply with tho regulations outlined for its development. Those winning the tlrst or second prize have tho option of com-poting for these specials or not as they please. This grain must be sawn on specially prepared ground and must be under the Inspection of the department of agriculture during the year. Thov must keep this seed and sow It all back on specially prepared ground the following year and it is the hope that In two years there will be plenty of good seed for sale. In addition to these requirements, the man going in for the raising of this seed grain will be expected to use such ordinary precautions as hovlng tho threshing machine cleaned before separating the special grain, to allow inspection at'the bin, and to clean well ,b*for^? offering for sale.

It is also represented that there are others who own farms which are unencuih-bered and who are similarly situated. It has been strongly urged that an attempt should be made to deal with such cases promptly. The Soldier Settlement Board, which has only recently, been. assembled, has not yet  hud time tp formulate Its regulations i\nd organisation for ordinary business. In ah endeavour to deol with these special ^cases ot urgency it has been decided that tholrjsi'^pUca|j|on$^may be,:re,-�ielved by the\Dom1nioiil,and Agencies and the necessary inspections*, and valuations of the land made'by:''ttifei: Homestead Inspectors forthe;'p^utJ*Me|^ ot a provisional loan.
