Asked by the press repre.semativy what he thought of the country, Mr. South- wick replied, "I have seen most of tlie grout funning countries of the world, but i havo nover seen a grain growing country etitml to Southern Alberta. 1 once thought that Ore- gon led the world, but, now 1 know that Southern Alberta does." The visitor is himself a. dry farmer from a. dry country and knows whereof he speaks. The Herald asked what method of farming ho would advise and ho Quickly answered that in his opinion the first thing that Alberta I farmers must do is to unload some land. They are, be thinks, trying to farm too much. ''Mix and intens- were the words he used. He was sure that just as much grain could be raised from half the area by intensifying as many farmers are get- ting now. Mr. Southwick Is also a beet and is rendering a.
