HIa presence has been found,' under di-vorsQ conditions, and upon attalyduk those conditions the conclusion wall arrived at that It might have beeh due to: 1.

In tbe management of tlie brood sows now being supplied by the Alberta government, attention is paid to all of these polnta. lilach boar la confined in n box stall eight feet square. No boar aervoa more than one aow each day, and that only once. Sunlight, trcshytir, exerctso and pro-telt: are supplied by feeding largely on whole oats thrown broadcast on the ground In such a way thjit the feed can be picked up only a grain at a time, and the animals mutt work practically all day to aattsty - their hunger. After a. fall of snow, a snow plow la used to clean off a now feeding place. In extremely cold weather they are fed in the, same manner under cover. Mineral matter it supplied by feed-Ing coal slack in which there haa been mixed talt atul sulphur at tho rata of one ton oC lUick, ten pounds coarse salt and ono pound of sulphur.

Lot me illustrate. We shall aorume that there arc 15 candidates standing; there are 4 places to be filled; there are 1,000 delegates voting.

', / ' If tho office of president (or any leason becomes vacant, the first vice-president becomes president during the rexnaiiider of the term. Would any delegate be willing to trust the office of president to a vice-president who J8 elected by one more than one-fifth of the delegates voting? Is it reasonable to think that any man elected by but ono more than one-fifth of the delegates, could by virtue of his election become president? And la there any guarantee that a vice-president elected by such a minority will be in harmony with the policies of the president who Is elected by a clear major-. Ity? Was An .error The adoption of the Hare System of proportional representation vote, In my eattmation, was an error liable to have disastrous results. It was 'adopted-':>at the Edmonton convention In 1917, not hy the executive or the bpard ot directors, but by the convention Itself, We were opposed to It, but as we had opposed aoine other measures that was presented at tha convention which we deemed U> be itnpractloal, and which has since proven so, we did not deem it wise or expedient to oppose the adoption on the lioor ot the convention. Wo do not like to establish the reputation of being a knocker. Generally speaklnj: we are progressive and believe in adopting progressive methods, but the adoption of this system without the delegates being .well posted on it ahows the necessity of "making haste slowly." 80 tar, the use of the oyBtom has not had bad results as the choice of the oonventlon have generally been satisfactory, but t^s the systom be-ooinos � hotter known and those who ' desire to do so, learn how to take advantage of its weakness when applied to'-our executive, the results are not, apt to .be so favoi:able. In this connoc-tlan -wo do not wish to be understood as opposing the principles of the Haro System-in oonnooUon with the elcc- dltferent'jjoye been obtained. When harvesting, care must be taken not to cut. on the greenslde, nor allow it to get over ripe, or the seed is liable to drop when harvesting. It usually . takes throe to four weeks ot good ripening weather after flowering to ripen tho seed. Cuttlnfl The best machine for cutting rye grass for seed la the ordinary grain ibinder. Tie the sheaves an;i stook i thero until dry enough to thresh from the stuck, or to ba stacked and th''Kah-ed later ot. Threshing The threshing Is usually done with tha regular grain separator. It care la used in regulating the sieves and wind, the seed can be made clean. . How and When To Sow The seed should be sown at the rate ot 14 ponnds per acre. If In a dry belt, where the humidity is low, a smaller quantity of seed will give better re-suits. The seed, which is light, weighing only 14 lbs. per bushel, may be sown by hand or with the ordinary grain drill. The seed can be sown with the grain drill alone, or may be sown mixed with twice the quantity of brok.. en wheat. It will be found best to have an extra man to attend the drill to see that the seed la coming out evenly. Before going to the field It Isa good plan to regulate the seed drill, so' as to get the quantity ot seed desired on each acre. A good place to test the seed drill Is on the hard road where every seed can bo seen. It Is advisable to sow quite shallow hut deep enough to get the feed into the moist earth. Should the soli be loose from cultivation and the seed drill, it is advisable to pack th* soil before and after the soed Is own. During the first season. It Is wall to. cut all growth up to about August, and as often ua the growth gets high enough for the � mower to work jroperly, not cutting the plants too cldflo to the ground at any time, and leaving all material on the ground to form a mulch. This with the autumn gi'owth .should be a good protection tor winter. Western rye grass does best when sown on a well prepared summer-fallow, but this* n�ethod Is found, to he rather expensive owing to tho Iosh of two seasona' crops, A. second plan, and ono otten adopt ed, la to plough a clean stubble .field early in the sijrlng, keep the cultivator going at Intervals until June Ist, then sow the aeod and pack tho land If' rotjulrod.
