'Mr. Ellison said that the company would use,all their power to get the railway co.m-pany to put water on the northern section, and he thought that the best w^y to proceed was to go direct to J.; S. Dennis of the Natural Resources department of the C.P.R. He also said that the Sugar Co. was ve:-y anxious to get a supp'.y of beets, and if they got sufficient to justify it, they will run this season. �. : It 'would appear from the talk and. from information available that if the necessary latei'als were put in, the Sugar Co. would have no difficulty in getting beets, and in addition to this the land would become more product-' ive-better crops of a'il descriptions would be raised, and the farmers would naturally build up their homes on the land instead of living in town a greater part of the year.' There seems to be no great difficulty In the way of getting, the water onto all lying east and west of Dry Cou'lee and west of the Pot Hole. If this scheme goes through, the value ot the land will be materially increased, and southern Alberta will have added another big tract to her already wide Irrigation area. REDUCE.
