Of course a number of them will be located on ready made farm* of the t'.l'.K. in this district, and Sou-:!:ern Alberta, generally speaking, should receive a great hulk of those who come to Aiberta farms. Use Experimental Farm. The plan has been proposed by those interested that, the experimental farm at I.ethlc.idge should he used as a training station for returned men who are anxious to go on farms. The experimental farm is splendidly adapted for such a proposal for training in both irrigated and dry farming. It is understood the matter ha� been taken up witli the Dominion minister ot agriculture. It is understood by tit" Herald also that private interests which control large area.; of land in this vicinity are considering a scheme of settlement of returned soldiers upon their lands, under favorable conditions.
