According to the official hand-book of Alberta, issued under'the direc- tions of the Hon. W, T.

Tne international Dry Farming Congress and Exposition hem its fifth annual session tnis 'year in Spokane. Three years ago our attention was di- rected to -this movement, and Leth- bridge made an ex'i'bii and J.L.C a'del- egare at "their SKSP-'on' held 'in UQeyene, Wyoming. Af. this our exhioit consisted ot half a bushel of Alberta Red Winter wheat, for which we ob'-r.ned {lie first in the bard, winter wheat clt-ss, The next ysar. trie Congress was held at Billings, Mont. Lethb- ridge, Cardston and Taber all had exhibits, and we had a dele- gation of twenty in a special car. We again won the hard winter wheat prem lum, and 'the othar exhibits from this district won many premiums. We- were also the second prem- ium having the 'best exhibit of anv state or province. The next meeting, which has just closed, was held in Spokane this year, betnonuge, Macleod. and Cardstou were again, represented by cent exhibits. JHacieod and Cardston practically cleaned up the premiums lor small grains and grasses. We, tliis year, were backed up by a large Pro- vincial exhibit installed bv the De- Coii- is plenty of moisture they will obtain and in a ]arger crop than -they otherwise would have done, and iu a season when moisture is scarce, as it has been in many of the Northwestern central state's .and in Southern Alberta tins year, farmers, who follow the meth- ods advised by this Congress, will ob- tain reasonable "crops, while their neighbors who1 farm on the old plan get nothing. We might write a column and then not express our full .belief and ideas of the importance and benefit of this Congress -to th'e' farmers-, and as not- ed, the world-wide publicity which the movement gained will be ex- tremely beneficial 'to tne province or state in which, the Congress is held.

Tins is a name to which many objec- j uons have 'been raised, many people, in ignorance, assuming that ir implies tanning where there is not sufficient rain to obtain good results. there rore, think that the holding ot: -the Dry Farming Convention in any ills-1 trier, places a stigma on the farming j resources of country.

In this "they were ably backed by the Hon. Duncan Mar- snail, wiio made a magnificent speech which brought down tlie convention and will not be forgotten by those who heard it for many a iay. We were also ably by.the Hon. Mr. Motherwell of Saskatchewan, and both these gentlemen promised ns sub- stantial aid. The Convention goes'to Colorado Springs in 1911, one ot the. reasons tor this being tae geographical situa- tion.' Spokane is" considered, to be north, Colorado and again Lethbridge will toe north for rjlii. were the runners up for Colorado Springs, and vith tie foun- dation we have been laying for the past three years capped by the effort and strong showing "we made this year, there is little doubt that we can obtain this Convention', for. 1912 if we go at It properly at the next conven- tion. Nevertheless it" will- not be a j walkover, as some of the places that want it are Los Angeles, Omaha, Salt Lake' City, Seattle and many otihers. As noted the Convention a permanent office, secretary and and, issues Its publications regularly; J wnereas, it. has no source of income aside from its trifling membership fee of. ?1.00 each and the place which lias tne Convention is expected to iinance the thing for the year. This means teat rsve- have-got to'raise approxi- mately, Of 'this the City of Lethbridge and -the-surrounding dis: i trict will-do its full share, but we are, looking to the Alberta Government for a large proportion of it, to the Sas- j katcnewan Government, the Domin- i ion Government, the C. P. R., and some, other places for substantial aid in the matter.- The assistance are ask- ing from the to create a public, opinion such gov- ernments feel fully justified in giving the substantial financial assistance toward this matter that we wish. In this connection 'we had almost' said compel them to doi it. for we believe the press, could compel .them, but oL-'Ag-, ncuHure in all these Governments -is tully awake to the advantas'is of this convention and fully realize its enor- mous importance. Having the prom- j ises of the Hon. Mr. Marshall and the ;j lion. Mr. 3'Totherwell, we can assure 'tyou that the Governments are now- convinced, but will point out that it will be difficult for a Government to give the strong financial aid requir- ed, to s. thing which will'be a new de parture in the country, unless backed by strong public opinion and look to you gentlemen to create that opin- I wn. in allow me to dvavy your attention to the nrt that while we are not asking for Convention until nevertheless, we have to go to the Convention of at Colorado Springs, fully with our finan- cial guarantees, etc., ia order diat we .may obtain the Convention for the fol- lowing year, therefore, all financial and general arrangements have to be made during the coining year before the October Convention of 1911, PLACE ORDERS NOW For your .wants from tlie.Nursery, Plant late in October and not next spring.
