FOR THE MEN ON THE SO Talks on Agriculture RE- 0 J Board of Trade Completes Organization-How the Money is Raised Following the agitation on the part of the Lcthbrldge Board o! Trade and the local press, the business men of Lethbridgc formally established a branch of the Imperial Homo Reunion association at their meeting last night. Seventeen names were secured to the list of those willing to be guarantors tor the trust fund of $5000. Mr. John Horne moved .lui Air. !'. W. Uowner seconded, that a committee including the chairman, bo named by the chairman, Mr. A. B. Stafford, to secure the necessary fifty guaran-. tors. The following were named ; Messrs. P. W. Downer, J. Horne, A. Hayr, McKay, Canning, J. D. Hig-inbotham and A. B. Stafford. Mr. � Horne exjlreised the opinion that no difficulty would be experienced ih the obl:aiiring of the guarantors. Tl^e form of guarantee- -was � road by Secretary Hay of the Board of Trade, and when the required' number of names have been-� secured; �which will serve as a guarantee for $5000, or $100 each, the guarantee will be placed with the bank. This will serve as security for loans advanced to .tlie association from tim^ 'to time for the purpose of worthy applicants in bringing their lai^.ilies from the British Isles. As ten applications have already been received, the association will have immediate use for the loans, and approximately fifty people will he brought' over from the old country and will join their husbands or sons in Lethbridge. transportation will be under the direction of the association, and no money is to be advanced directly to the applicant. The necessary ticl^ets will be purchased from the companies touching the nearest sail ing points of the applicant's family, and the company does the rest. A board of directors will be appointed as soon as the association secures sufTicient guarantors. This board will pass on all applications, and certain regulations must be complied with. Must Make Deposit The applicant will bo required (o make Sumcient deposit to assure the directors that he Is sincere. He must also furnish satisfactory references both in Lethbridge and in his homeland. It is necessary that he be a working man in a fairly permanent position. Aside from the deposit he will be required to give his note for all moneys directly benefitting him or I assisting to bring his family to this city. Relatives Must Be Healthy Certain requirements regarding the health of those he wishes to bring out have been adopted and must be adhered td. The notes are used as a form of repayment. Applicants will be given reasonable time to refund the loans. The constitution of the'Winnipeg organization will be followed as tar as it suits Lethbridge conditions. The association is entirely distinct from the Board of Trade ; the guar-] antors tor the fund will appoint their own officers and examiners. The actual expense to the association will bo practically nil, steamship commissions practically paying all operating expense.s. The guarantors are not liable at any time for more than they sign for. The Winnipeg organization brought some BOOO people to the city in one year at an actual expense of $28.32. One hundred thousand dollars was retained in the city that formerly went to the support of families on the other side. Wliat has been done in V/innipeg and twenty-seven ptlier Canadiati cities can be and will be done in Lethbridge, and a largo sum of money which is now being sent to the British Isles will not only be kept here, but will be spent here. It was suggested that the association take out the agency ot insurance and steamship companies. MODEL DIErr FOR THE PREACHERS Pittsburg, Pa., May 1.-Urged to eat a littlo meat, and plenty of peas, beans and eggs, sixty great ministers' today took off their coats and tried to touch fingers to the floor without bending the knees. Few succeeded, but progreas was )tcd by a lecturer of Berkeley, lal., who came hero to tell Pittsburg preachers how to set well and stay well. "The food for a laibbi-ing man must be different from the food for a professional man," lb was stated. 'Every ^minister ought to eat at least two apples a day, and plenty of cabbage. You must eat onions, too.". MIL.L.IONS LOST THROUGH RAIS-\NV, WJliKAT It costs $1.01 1-2 lo produce the average busliel of wheiit, according to Dr. ,1. 11. Worst, president of the agricultural college of North Datkota, Ho says that the farmers are mining the soil' and robbing future generations every time they grow a wheat crop and that they are in reality producing the crop at a real cash loss every year. "According to tht; very best authorities," says Ur. Worsi, "one acre producing 20 bushels of wheat mines from the soil 44 pounds of potash, worth 5 cents a pOiir.d or $2.20; twenty pounds of phcsphoric acid, worth four cents a pound or 80 cents and 42 pounds of nitrogen, worth \r, cents a pound, or $3.60; a total of $9.30 an acre or 4(5 1-2 cents wonh of soil fertility for every bushnl of wheat raised. The United States Oeprfrtmpnt ot agriculture says that labor and other production cost, interc-st on luvea-ment cost of marketing, depreciation etc., amounts to 5S cents per bushel for all wheat raised in the United States. This brings the actual cost of a bushel of wheat, including the commercial value of the constUutents removed from the soil up to $1.04%." Since the average price received for wheat is much leas than this sum Dr. Worst estimates that the annual loss to the farmers of this country runs well into the hundreds of millions on their wheat crop. The loss in North Dakota through the fertility alone which was removed by the wlieat last year, says Dr. Worst, will amount to $70,000,000. Dr. Worst is vice-president ot the Jnternational Dry-Farming Congress. His figures are so startling' in their indication that the future ot the American farmer must depend largely upon feeding crops and on the return of the manure to the soil that a discussion of the subject will be made a special order ot busl ess at the annual meeting ot the Congress in Tulsa, Oklahoma, next October. �   TOMATO CULTURE Almost anyone with a garden or farm in a temperate climate can grow tomatoes with greater or less success, but there is a great dirterence between the extent and quality of the crops grown by differ nt persons in the same locality. Thjse diflcrenc-es are due to several causes among which the varieties grown and methods of cultivation practised arc perhaps the chief. According to cxperimints carried on for years at the Farm at Ottiwa, Earliana, of \\hirh there are several strains, is the I est early sort, but Bonny Best, Chalks' Early .lewel are also good early kinds. Of later varieties Matchless Trophy, Livingston's Globe and I'ientiful rank high. It is the early fruit that makes the profit. In growing plants what should be aimc'd at is tlie production of a stocky, sturdy plant which will have some fruit set upon it when set in the field. After planting, the chief v.'ork is cultivation, which should be done both ways in the plantation. In order to protect tomato plants from diseases, of which there arc several, they should be repeatedly sprayed, even when quite young, with Bordeaux mixture. These and many other points, which cover practically the whole field of tomato culture in the green house cas well as in the garden aiid field, are fully treated in pamphlet No. 10 of the 'Central Experimental Farm prepared by the Dominion Horticulturist, Mr. W. T. Ma- coun. This work is for iri'i- rllstrihu-tion to all who apply I'.i n to th.. Publications Branch (u the Department of. Agriculture at otiawa.    PURE SEI';i) This is the season whr.,, farmers are securing their seed .suiJijjy for the coming spring.
