SOIL WELL FILLED j WITH MOISTURE i FOR SPRING WORK; ________, f Spring plowing, previous to tlie re- cent snow TTFL3 progressing rapidly in practically every district of southern Alberta. The snow has so goue away as to leave practically all its moisture in tho ground and today the land is iu better shape for plowing than ever it was last fall. Mr. C. D.

Will Have Practically Unani- mous Support From AH Sections of the Leg- islature There is no more enthuaiaitic citizen over the announcement of the guaranteeing of the irrigation bonds than Brigadier-General J. S. Stewart. "Doc" expresses his hearty approval of the action of the government and says that it will have- the solid if not the unani- mous support of both sides of the house when the measure is pre- sented. From the very start he has taken the attitude that the government should give a full guarantee of the bonds. He is highly pleased that the announce- ment has come from the premier and that it was not left to his side of the house to move for the guaranteeing of the bonds, which would have been done, had no ac- tion of the kind been taken by the government. The question he by no means a po- litical one, and so far as he was personally concerned there was nothing in the way of playing politics in urging a full guarantee of the bonds.. With th'e feeling of the house as a whole, as he senses it. he is confident that the irriga- tion policy as announced will ma- terialize along the lines mention- ed into a practical policy.
