At the recent Dry Farming Con- gress at Billings, Mont., Prof. B. C. Buff F. Wyoming, gave the following very instructive and inter- esting paper on "Some Things Wo Do Not Know About Dry My paper is no attempt to expose our ignorance of correct practice in dry_farming, for I take it, such would be beyond the power of finite mind. On the contrary if I am able in a small way to bring out one or two of the deeper reasons for the suc- cess of this great movement, and out- line what I believe will be the modus operandi of its future development I shall have succeeded iri pleasing mv- self. We believe there is nothing in untoward seasons, or prolonged drouth, the wish of the selfish few or the skepticism of the ignorant which can now turn the wheels of time backward or wipe out the dry farm- ing movement.' We are interested in it because it is a boon which enables more-people to enjoy the salubrious climate of aridity, and will help fur- j esting, but they did not tell the niih. for some time to come the neces-j truth as has been shown in Montana, sary supply of the manna of civiliza- for the food of man- meat to balance his ration, the edict of Mai thus is again delayed arid race suicide need not be considered a ser- ious issue. In the light of present scientific attainment I cannot agree with the man who thinks there is nothing new in dry farming for it. presents important innovations. It has been said that a physician; with a library more than ten years; old has lost his usefulness. 'The wis- dom of the ancients may be useful j to the classical student, the theolog- j ian and the philosopher and Black- j stone is still the accepted foundation j of the Law. Heretofore the farmer j has proceeded with the inherited leg- acy of the way his daddy did it to which he may have added some rears of personal experience, the most of which he finds falls short when he j changes to a new environment, and j were it not that his mind is keen enough to cut out some slices of new j knowledge in order to adapt himself, j western farming would hardly now exist. Farming has become" a pro-j fession, and the progressive farmer will no longer attempt with- out a library or-get along with formation spoiled with a decade of decay. There are two kinds of Ag- ricultural information and the kind we have the most of is of least val- ue. The Common Kind is that repre- sented by the statement, "I did so and so and got a neighbor did not do so and did not get a crop j therefore you must do as I did if yen Would reasoning is j faulty it does not meet the need of j the hour. The growing crop is under the i varied influences of soil, i moisture, and all the inherent life forces of the plant. All factors are not the same in any locali- ties or on any two farms. In his j practice the farmer has been an imi- tator rather than a student. He ac- j cepts the how and the when to do things of some one else who has with success, rather than inquiring j the why the knowing of which would enable him to vary his practice In ac- cordance with his own environment. Some accepted rules for dry farm- ing are plow pact the two years the soil use clean tillage. There arc others but these -examples will suffice. Dr. i Cooke than whom there is no better authority wisely says "There are exceptions to all rules and none can he considered so hard and fast that it will not need to be varied to meet differing conditions." Now I would not raise a quarrel with our own bread and butter but there may be a. fly in the ointment. Tt is notably true that the farmer, depending on his location may break any one or j all the dry farm commandments and i TA MlH-Self. WMlC 1 rules are useful the reasons they mav be broken are apparent. W7e do not know some of the important princi- ples at the foundation ,oi our dry farnring practice but every time a new one is discovered it enables us to guide our work with more success. Let us give concrete" examples. Un-! til we knew that it was capillary ac- tion which brought the moisture to the surface, of the soil where it is lost by evaporation we were in the. dark about water conservation. The. soil mulch was an irregular result of; tillage carried on for fertility and j weed destruction, rather than a svs-j' tem. Again m-fore we knew that i making the N. plant food available j depended on air using nitrification j bacteria, which change the organic' matter into a simple mineral condi- tion the recommendations of Jethro Tull to till and his insistence thai, tillage was manure, could not be in- telligently understood or used. Vvc are apt to forget the work of Scip- sic, Sachs, Mendel and others, who have shown us some of the great laws upon which we have built up an agriculture which has doubled ia efficiency. But still there is work for the "scientist to do. We need to know more of the simple reasons Jor ERE is the charm that adds to fish The.subtle; piquancy you wish. oaucc Made and.bottled in England. larger growth on the same amount of water if the ingredients make the so- lution rich in plant food. This is of importance to the western-farmer and would explain more abundant crops from our more concentrated soil so- lutions with less amount of moisture than has been actually necessary, in more humid climates. After having discovered the first causes and worked out our methods of soil culture and crop management our increased development and suc- cess will depend on. two kinds pf in- vention. It is probable that our pres- ent methods of applying power and our present implements'an-d machines will become obsolete with perfection of mechanical invention. It; seems" to me however that the greatest pro- mise centers in improvement and creation of new forms of domesticat- ed plants, We have not yet had time to breed and aaapt new forms and varieties of crop plants, especially in the Here is the greatest thing we do not know about western farm- ing, to what future success the mak- ing of. improvement in plants will quantities oi concentrated soil alis and flies afield, but man is handi- tions, converting larger quantities of capped by time he then mineral elements into higher and more useful organic compounds. This idle'prophecy for enough has already been done to prove the point. By selection the corn, breeder has more.than doubled the possible aver- age crop. By Hybridizing, Burbank has made a thornless cactus grow one hundred tons of forage per acre and produced a hard wood tree with feeding capacity so great that it has made more growth in a given time, than any other tree known. If these things ha'ye been done with a few plants, why may we not extend the process.

Ten points below twenty is much farther than 40 points below BO, but I believe we still have great- er things to learn, nor do I think it visionary to predict larger develop- ment in the next few years than has been made in a century before.
