COURKCT GUADING AND HONEST THAWNG I N A IIKCKXT AKIICUE Herald hail occasion lo refer to 1 the rapid strides made agriculturally-by the Kingdom of Den- mark. This was primarily (raced to Hip etliciency of popular education. In its nllcx this tended (o syslcr.i of grading in dairy products, such as bullrr, so lo miikc llw Danish export in its different (uiulitics familiar to the masses who useu it, When Ilauish butter, snob as No. 3, was asked for the child of the Hril- slt svoikman UIICAV exactly what it would taste like, The stand- ard of the different grades has been uniformly sustained, anil his correct grading cvirries with il an iuiport.int commercial asset in lhal il slsmps the hall mark of hoiirst liiidinS-' The example of Ihe Danish daily producers has been emu- atcd by Ihe Dutch farmers, and in consequence Ihe agricultural industry in the land of dykes has reached a high pilch of'pros- perity. The story of the-conflict the conquest of, tho .urushing by the sturdy population of Holland is one familiar lo us ati. same perseverance mid energy has been turned into use for overcoming economic obstacles. These arc dealt with by J. Robertson Scott hi "A Free farmer in n I'rce Stale." The story of what has been achieved "or the agricultural prosperily of Holland goes back for its cause, as in Denmark, lo Ihe samp, old Irulh, "correcl grading and honest trading." The Toronto (ilobe. in dealing with Mr. Sroll's volume, traces Ihe facts which hnve placed Holland in its present enviable tgricnltural position. The story is well-presented and serves as an object lesson which should not be lost on farmers of this country, us well iis on thobo in olhcrs not possessing Ihe like ad- vantages in Ihe markets of the world. Thirty years ago agriculture in the Netherlands was nt the lowest point. The chief difficulty, as in Can- ada today, lay in marketing. The stolid Dutchman was quick to observe thut while small farmers' had the ad- vantage in production the big farmers had the advant- age in marketing. It is a free, bul the farmer did not look to Ihe stale for tariff dykes. A deputation was appointed to visit Denmark and study the conditions Ihere. Like Joshua's spies, the deputa- tion came bad: with Ihe report that Denmark was a goodly and pleasant land to look upon, bill il was pos- sible for Holland to achieve similar results. How? By the introduction of co-operation. And in co-operation, not restricted tariffs, (he Dutch farmers found salva- tion. From being a country lhat imported butler, cheese and eggs, il bus become one of Ilic gvealesl ex- porters of the.se commodilies. By a splendid system of supervision and control inferior samples-of butter and cheese can be traced back lo the original producer, and the country lins gained a rcmnrkable reputation for cor- rect grading and honest trading. Through co-operation, education, and untiring industry the Hollander 'hhs brought his country to a. high pitch of 'jifosperity, and', has pointed the way for other ntSlicms to solve the problem of greater eBicien'cylih farming.

There appears to be a hesitating dis- position on the part of the civic antliorilies so far lo move in the mailer. At any rate il is a physical impossibility to have things in shape to prevent the repetition of muddy water next spring. While emphasizing the importance of securing a permanent 'pupply of pure and 'clean water, Herald does not think it amiss to suggest some.sorl of remedy to prevent the inconven iencc which citizens have been up against recently with regaril lo Ihe walei-supply. ___ The question of a filtration plant is agitating Calgary. Al .Ihe present time Mr. Fawkes, Ihe waterworks engineer there, is Slaving creeled a temporary chemical purification plant which ,will be part of the pumping station supplying water from the Bow River, as a standby to the Elbow River gravity system. '.This pump will afford a gallon supply daily from the Sow River and the water will be treated hypochloridc sulphate of aluminum. The water taken from the Bow is treat- ed only which effectually kills all germicida" life. The' addition of aluminum sulphate to the water, how- ever, will also remove suspended mailer and the chemcial pre- cipitates, giving: a-clarify of about 75 per cent, The hypo- r-hloridc makes the water practically pure so far as typhoid and the like arc concerned, having an efficiency of about 98 per cent. According to Mr. Fawkes, the aluminum sulphate not only removes suspended particles from the water but also removes ilic chemicals after Iheir work is done. When added lo Ihe Svaler, the aluminum sulphate spreads out in a glutinous form and collects the infinitesimal particles of suspended the (lead gcrmicidal matter which has been killed by iho hypo- sulphide, and also the rccapilale formed by the hypo-sul- phide after the chemical reaction lakes the addition of tile aluminum sulphate and is then strained out through a series of screens. The water comes out per cenl. pure so far as germ life is concerned, and 75 per cent, clear of suspended matter as silt, clay and Ihe like. A bylaw carried on appropriation for for tlie csfab- l.ishmciit of a furhidily filtration system in connection with the JBow pumping station, but Mr. Fawkes decided that il would bo impossible.In erect a proper fillralton system ai this point under a cost of S'lOO.flOO, To spend such a sum on a filtration plant Die city-is.as yd undecided whether the supply shall ulti- mately lie-obtained by gravity Hum mountain streams or hikes the waterworks engineer considers foolish. lie discussed lliesc points with Mr. Murray when lhal expert looked over Ihe water situation and Mr. Murray agreed lhal the temporary chemical Ircafnicnt of Ihe walcr i? Ihe best solution of the problem nl present. It costs less Ihrm lo install the chemical treating apparatus at the Bow River station and il will toon be In working order. As a temporary remedy, lo overcome the nuisance which is jitiund lo occur until the necessary permanent policy is adopted with regard lo Ihe walcr supply, the matlcr of chemical purifica- tion is.'Worlh considering if il is within the scope of practical Mr. Tracy in his address revealed Ihe man with a know- ledge of his job. y{ The financial stringency is still-on but Lelhbridge is gelling ready for the move forward when times brighten up. The business men last night were shown the way to a larger and greater Lethbridge. One-eighth of one mill on a big assessment means some- thing, but it does not mean much to the small properly holder Supl. Price in his address showed the bigness which usuallj characterizes him.
