Medicine Hat, Nov. 7.-At the council meetin.i? Mi. .\nBk"y produced a clipping from the News aueut the meeting held here a' few days ago to hear rocommondations for the improving of the ranching Industry. At great length tlie aldermun drew a startllngly vivid word picture of the shoclving result it would have ou Medicine Hat and district, were the recommendations of the ranchers put into effect by the government, it would mean that instead o� Medicine llat developing as an agricultural district she would go baci;. As exam pies o� the havoc the new regulations would cause he pointed to the fact that his son had a section of laud near Seven -Persons for which he paid from SIO to |20 ;in acre. If the ranching leases were granted he would be unalde to get more than %'i per acre for it. .^^. On the north, he stated, hitf^Son-in-law, whom he inducetl to come out here, lield with his son a half secliou of land. If'the rauohlng lease was granted tlieiL� tlus,. land, Wetltors wero asked for from ail parts of tho Kmpirc, find over forty liavo been hoard from Ijy the department. Among the material submitted for appro, vul are many designs. The statue will cost IMS,000. Zinc will be given a fine luster if polished with one part sulphuric acid to 12 of water. In the November issue of Dry Farming the folI$iwjhg interesting letter from C. S. Noble, of Noble, ap-pears: . ; In -response to'^ydur request for an article on my sHccess in dry-farming 1 would refer particularly to work done since the dry,-season of 1910, as greater efforts towjird. better farming have been made since that time. First, 1 broke in the spring ot 1905 1370 acres, mostly with a 32-horse Reeves engi-ne and a lO-ftirrow Cock-shutt plow. The breaking was done about three and � half inches deep. To the plow Was attached a roller, heavy enough to leave the sod very smooth. We then followed immediate ly with an in-aiid-out-throw disc attached closely together and with only disc enough to cut about one Inch deep. The discs were followed Immediately with a harrow. The most ot the land was gone over a second and a third time until a mulch ot eomo two Inches was formed; and this land in this condition never dried out ta the least underneath the sod. It should be understood that the operation ot discing and harrowing was done with horses following the engine. In the spring of 1912 this land was harrowed, some once and some twice before seeding, as well as once after. Shoe drills were used. Seeding of! 120 acres of early. Stanley wheat was begun April 1, one and a halt bushels of seed per acre being used. The harvesting of this wheat started August 12, and the yield was 37 bushels per aci-e. In my opinion later varieties of wheat, in this particular season, would have yielded on the same land 45 hushels per aero. and I am planning to seed nothing In the future except on land most carefully summer fallowed. We can reason this out in any way we choose aud find that in a term ot from three to five years we will be decidedly ahead if these methods of farming are strictly adhered to. We will also keep our land perfectly clean, as well as In a very much more attractive and productive condition.

Summer Fallows 3700 Acres -During the season of 1912 I have summer fallowed some 3700 acres, largely with two Reeves engines. Some 3-turrow plows drawn ' by 10 horses each were also used to exceedingly good advantage. The plowing was -done from seven to nine inches deep, tho purpose being to always go at least two inches below the old furrow. The harrow, and in some cases the disc and harrow, were either attached to the plows or followed closely, and harrowing with straight-tooth and Acme harrows was repeated at intervals ot about three weeks. This summer tallow now contains an abtuidance of moisture, and should produce much better than the land prepared for the 1912 crop. Regarding the various kinds of power, I may say that I have operated gasoline engines, but cannot feel friendly toward them. We have done exceptionally good work with steam, but in my opinion the engine power has been crowded upon the farmer to such an extent as to have the effect ot getting land under cultivation more rapidly than labor and capital can be secured to properly work it. It will be very evident to visitors coming into our country that we have often become too enthusiastic over our large yields and consequent advances In land, and quickly gotten into tho way ot doing things by excitement, in many cases overreaching our financial ability, and in some instauces meeting with absolute failure where we should have had the best-ot suc- DUGHESS OF MARLBOROUGH Advice from London Indicates that the former Consuelo Vanderbilt Is in a serious condition from appendicitis.

The seeding ot 200 acres ot oats, using two bushels of seed per acre, was started April .10 and the harvesting August 10, tho yield being 107 bushels per acre, grading the best, and at 37 cents per bushels making a return ot $33.32 per acre, Tho seeding of 1050 acres of flax on this same new breaking was begun April 17.

Tho harvesting ot this crop was started August 31 and was done very successfully aud rapidly with the ordinary hinder, with flax attachment and front portions of platform and upper elevator canvasses faced with heavy cotton to prevent winding. Some 1400 acres ot old land were also seeded to flax. Here it was found stubble had been burned, making It perfectly clean, and tho land carefully disced and harrowed, tbe |lax thrived much better than on fall plowing. Tbe firm seed bod iinderueatb which would naturally exist on land worked tWs way, seems to be right for flax.- Although I hav> this season b�en very BuccoBsful in growing flax on old land aud without plowing, I would not ordlaarlly recommend it any mora than in tbe caie of any othor oroj); Diversified Farming Pays Best While I am operating in rather a large way, I am certain that by taWng more pride in doing a smaller amount ot farming the very best way and by raising the best possible grade ot livestock, we shall Increase .the value ot our land more rapidly, as well as our net gain in farming operations. Whether in large or small farms, we want stock of the very beat kind. More attention should also bo given to the small things for which there is so great a demand in our home tear-Itets, to keeping our land perfectly clean by rotation of crops or by tbe ordinai-y bare summer tallow methods, In harmony with these objects, we shall naturally give more attention to the growing ot trees and the beautifying of our homes, all ot which will react in a way to help ua to set a better example for our growing boys and to afford us more of the real pleasures of tbe most Independent ot callings. Where dairy bl-products are available they should always be fed to hogs, both young and old, according to George Morris, In Kimball's Dairy Parmer. In the dairy sections tho large quantities of skim-rallk, buttermilk and whey returned to the farms from factories and creamerie-a make it profltablo to keep large numbers of pigs. Milk in any form has properties which go to make economical meat. Skim milk .Is valuable as a hog food because ot the protem and ash it carries having a high value in building the muscle-a and mony framework ot young animals; for pigs, five or six pounds ot skim-mllk has the feeding He DIED IN CHURCH hit on Top Every Time!

Butter-mllk has practically the same compoaltion as skim-mllk although it is thought to be somewhat richer in tat. Whey Is worth about half as much as sklm-milk for pig feeding, therefore It will take twice as much whey as skim-mllk to equal a pound of corn. Skim-miik is being used in many sections as a supplementary feed with corn. GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER Montreal, Nov. O.^-Wiintworth Mosliy, charged witli tliu murder of Wm. 0.
