His fadings are s rcFuH of practical experience, and are based on the grazing of live stuck. Four Great Problems According to this farmer who is ap- plying an olfl Idea in :i new country, .here are four problems with "which the average irrigation farmer has to cor tend. These 1. The sTe.iie-st pric- ed, inefficient, labor. The present-system of farming 'requires a. different distribution ol water from that which fs.prpvided 'or in the contract, iiot" only the'-tarm'-, ir's second greatest problem, but the irrigation company's greatest problem. The weed'nroblem. The irrigat; has to "coiileml-with two- weed spreaders, under (ho present whereas the dry land farmer has only one. The farmer who uses water, has the canali as weed-seed distributors, as well as the 'winds, .the: dry land farmer-having only the latter to com- bat, and Irrigation water is tooXcd up- m "as possibly more effective, endoiis investment IIL and its tremcnduup. ileprecialion, a necessary present i -i Has Stood the Test The method of farming pwhich'. Is solving all of these problems for-tilts" irogressive farmer, is one that baa stood the test ol years in England and on the continent. :The grazing .of live stock is as old as the farming I The chief objection which1 most farmers in the irrigated .district rats'o to llio method is that their land is top expensive lo graze, ttut according to Informant there is no land on'.the fare nf'tl'.e "carlh- that' is too high priced for this purpose, ami" the bis lory of agriculture ,hears him out in liis claim. The very cream of the land in England and Kurope is being con A Definite System A definite system, which, TV HI shotvn to eliminate or reduce these P: to the minimum is set f'.rtl Having automatically etioiaattd it- self, tha labor question is 'worthy ol 133-farther comment it. is tat- on Into consideration seriously, it will be seen that this method is the means of. saving the fanner in the neighbor- hood of 5500 annually, which ir.eaus a great deal to the average tiller of the soil. At" present, about two-thirds of tho area of" in question Is in grata. Hie other third being sown to alfaffa. The irrigation problem is a difficult one, being looked at from both tbe user's and the company's point; -because" the farmer raising grain is compelled to compress his Irri- gating, into "two short periods, one in tho early 'summer, the otlicr in the late fall, needs cot only one .cubic foot j section, but four or five at a''Umc when neighborl'life" maliing the same depiatids-on the company. The result is that tbe company cannot supply the rnie-r, and a grtiat of the grain loes cot get irrigated. In tbe same a majority of the irrigated land yc-rcMn same difficulty would he more acute' because 'the alfalfa requires vatcr frooi two'to four duiirijr ;hc grosving sea'spa, and'.at'1 defmite J The Rernedy VVith.the'tnetho'd outlined, the water coiitdfljo used along the lines .the', which, provides .continuous but small flow frdra spring vntil-fall. A single cubic foot would be user! on the pasture throngh- ou't" the season, except during a'short period .when -it -would, be .turned into the alfalfa patch, and concentrated there'so Uiat.tlie alfalfa would receive bolter .watering the' other tne.p'islure would n I so get-all ;that it The fa'nnsr %vbuld thus be using a cubic foot per and no more, but it .would bo used continuously, during tiie season, and the laud on the aggregate would bc.getting more waler'tlian IB jlossible under the present system. The.Weeds'" J list as tho labor prc-rlem was E> eliminating, so the weed menace would into this al all. This system j provides tbe the roush-' age, what grain wouH oe required Tvith the alfalfa in the vvlnier to finifh the stock for market could be Good beef animals would be market- able at two years or under, and at present' prices would .bring per up. It is" not Hvo ?loc'k that t-anuot be produced v.ith urofil on high-priced land, b'-it craln. Let thcj grain come from the lower priced dry' land adjacent lo these farm's, llius giving tho dry-land farmer a cljance to make something on his grain. A farmer -in the irrigated bell could afford to give more for iis than the elevators pay. The dry laud far- mer says he cannot raise wheat with profit on his low priced land, at the present so how are we to do EO? In this way both 01-115 would benefit.1' Crop Rotation It "would be advisable to occasionally, rotate the alfalfa and pasture, though there would be no necessity for doing. so. The alfalfa has the natural power to gather nitrogen from the atmoa- nbere, and tbe soil would, be enriched rather than become depleted of plant food. Hard to Make the Start There is no doubt but what this method of farming on Irrigated lands would earn a banking rale of interest on the. valuations, of from 5150 to an acre, hut it would bo very difficult for Uie average farmer to en- ter on this program. It would require at'kast an acre .-for the live stock alone, which-puts it oul of tljc reach of nearly every .farmer-at.

Machinery' This scheme eliminates aleo the ma- chintry-tnan and the nuchlnery note. All the tools that are necessary- are those required lo do tho first breaking and preparation of tbo laud, and a tow baying tools. The Royal Commission whlcb inquired into farm credit and loans recently, gave out in their re- port that of the total debt of the farmers of Canada today, on their wbot6 plant, land, buildings and na- cUnery, was for the latter, and there is nol a farmer in the whole west nr'io does not know what a machinery col- lector looks atid how he has .'e farmer tied hand and foot.
