"Our laws with regard to the use from our rivers for 'irrigation purposes have been care- fullv desif-ued; but so far as 1 know, absolutely" nothing has been done to conserve approaches to our rivers and streams and lakes and coulees for the use of the people as a whole.

"The Canadian Pacific Railway has pursued a wise policy in reserving a neutral zone on the borders of a part of the Chin Coulee reservoir; but in other parts of the coulee which might be filled with water I do not think that such reservations have been made.

Threshing returns so far. es- pecially in Southern Alberta, show a zood percentage of No. 1 grain and likewise very good per acre yioli. Over fifty bushels per acre is common. Evi- dence far indicates that the yields this year, especially in the south, are not going tc fall as far below last year's phenomenal yields as was ex- pected. Some very large yields hare been already threshed and while the standing crop locks well, on close ex- amination the heads are shorter and are not as well filled as last year. On the whole, wheat will yield as well as it ever has, with the exception ot last vear. The damage from hall was not less this year than usual. The chief in- jury occurred in the Battle River val- ley and for some distance south In widely scattered patches. There was little or no injury in the southern part of the province. Part, ot the Peace River district will give only a light crop on account of drouth. The oat crop is generally good. On account of the practice of very late sowing, some of the crop has been caught with the frost and for this reason, care should be taken to test for germination in the case of oats intended for seed. Barley has like- wise been a good crop but suffered some in certain localities in the frost that occurred about August 10th. Little loss -has been suffered from rust Traces ot rust were seen along the central eastern part of the pro- vrD-e but too late to work any serious injury There is considerable less straw to thresh this year than last.

The provision of water supplies for farm use la Southern Alberta becomes dally of greater importance The President of this Board of Trade has on several occasions during the past three vears mentioned this matter in public" and on his suggestion the Dominion government caused geolog- ical surveys for well waters to be made over a. wide area in 1915. The Domin- ion government is now causing test holes for artesian waters to be bored in three districts in the Southern part of this 1-rovince, and it is honed that these will prove the presence of artes- iian well waters over a considerable 'area. The officers of the Geological I Survey, however, are not able to hold 'out much hope of finding adequate well waters over the very large areas that are not in the artesian water bas- in; and these artesian waters lie at such depths that the cost of drilling very heavy, say 54.000 to per well.

At present threshing operations are proceeding under favorable weather conditions and the returns are slight.? better than anticipated. Hay The hay crop is somewhat less than last year Our reports show a lighter yield with a slight increase In acreage. Haying operations were held back somewhat on account of broken wea- ther. Roots The practice of root growing Is de- cidedly on the increase among those in dairy and general live stock work. The area is considerably increased this year and the yield will be good. The area in potatoes Is likewise In- creased and the crop will be a satis- factory crop as to yield. The quality is somewhat variable. Live Stock It is thought that there will be an abundance of fodder for fall and win- ter supply; ail live stock is in good condition; no epidemics have occurred anywhere and there has been loss dis- ease of other kinds than usual. Breeding stock of all kinds is In strong demand.
