OTT BLOCK 1- tr1 J Growing Trees on the Prairie. By D. W. Buchanan, St. Charles, Manitoba. any farmer* are deterred from attempting to grow trees on the prairie by the belief that it is a slow and tedious process, and that athest It will require a grout many yenrs to grow trees to a sufficient size mgivi* shade and shelter. 1 have heard fur-innrs express themselves to the effect thut they were not going to upend their labour and money growing trees from which some othors would reap the ItcnefK. inferring that the trees would not be of any value during their lifetime. This iH a mistaken notion. Trees cun In? grown to a slzo thut will give good shelter within two years. Jt is true thut some trees are of very slow growth, but there are others which are of very rapid growth. Some of the hitter will produce a good shelter bolt suf. Helent to give good protection to the fruit or \egetable garden, In two scu&ous, and in a year or two more will make good shade or avenuetrees A great deal depends of course upon the cultivation given. If the trees are planted in sod they are not likely to over come to anything. It is not necessary that the soil should l>o Very rich, for securing a rapidgrowth in trees; indeed, some trees, like tho Russian poplars will do well on quite light, sandy or gravelly soil. Good cultivation, however, is necessary. The land should bo plowed deeply, the Ml before planting, and itshould bo free from sod. If new land, it should be brought thoroughly under cultivation before planting. New land may be prepared for planting trees In one season by the following method. Break as early in spring as possible, later disk well, back sot in tho summer disc well after backsetting, then plow as deep as possible in the fall, and let stand until spring. Harrow down in the spring before planting. As a rule, however, it is advisable to take at least one crop off new ground before planting to trees. Cultivation after planting is tho next important point. This consists in continuous surface cultivation around the trees. If trees are planted in rows, tho space between tho rows should be kept continuously loose, by shallow cultivation .say every ten days during the spring and early part of the summer. This is best (lone with a one-horse cultivator. If V windbreak or shelter belt is required, tho trees may bo planted $i to 4 feet apart each way. This leaves space to run between the rows grown In two seasons. It is absurd to suppose that trees will thrive in grass or where a cereal crop is grown around them. As a cereal or grass crop will tako from 150 to 200 tons of moisture per acre, there is*a poor chance for the trees. For rapid growth the poplars and willows are the most valuable. Tho j latter are cs|teclally valuable for shelter belts. Cottonwood Is a rupid grower but is a thin and rather poor tree. It thrives best on moist, retentive soils. Most of tho willows sold by eastern and southern nurseries are of no value in our prairie provinces. Care should U* exercised to procure cpecies that have been tested here. Of the goblen willow alone there are several form**, only one of which is UM>ful here. } Ik*Hides the lieuuttfylng of the homo or the providing of shelter, trees add much to the actual cash vnluo of u place. I'rof, Geeen estimates that a tree is worth from one to two dollars i�er >ear of its age. Valuations huvefrequentiy been pluced upon trees by tho courts, where they have I wen cut or damuged to allow of the construction of street railways, telephone lilies, etc. in many cases $200 to 9300 |>er tree has been allowed for ireoscut down in this way. The vnluo of a tree dopends to a considerable extent upon its location and the care It has received. One of the most frequent mistakes made by tho farmer is to crowd the trees too closely around their buildings, thus causing more drifts. The location of the trees should therefore Imj carefully planned, and if pnssill* the advice of au experienced landscapeman should be obtained, before extensive planting is undertaken. Bouquets. W.

DOMINION LANDS. Ottawa. Ont., March 14 .-Hon. Krank Oliver in moving the second reading of his Dominion Lands' bill in the Mouse of Commons to-day, made the following important an -nouncement. "The government Is fully convinced of tho propriety of giving tho Northwost an additional railway outlet by way of Hudson's Hay at the earliest possible date. Th? government helloves thut with tho increase in production of the wont now in progress, such an additional outlet will bo urgently needed as soon as a railway can be built, evon if it were comnumcod at onco. At the Hume time it realizes that public opinion throughout Canada could scarcely bo expected at the moment in view of tho great obligations al- ^ - ready incurred by connection with railway enterprise, to sanction the additional obligation that would be incurred by providing immediately for tho construction of a railway to CH ICE SELECTED LANDS IN THE DISTRICT We Have Exclusive Sale of the Choicest Lands In Township 9, Bnnge 18 ; Township 8, Bangs best Southern Alberta early the season, but at present all our business will bo conducted fro Offices at Duluth Minn.
