Wheat is grown too Questioned by Mr. Armstrong Mr stated that eleven years azo the Gait coal was the only coal in the west, and now it is the standard. They had already spent half a million at the new colliery. They felt that in opening a shaft that would be oper- ated for twenty-five years it would be poor economy to put in any but the, best and most up to date' ma- chinery. __The new shaft is the second largest, n not the largest, in.

In reply to President Robertson he ventured the prediction that in ten years ihe output of Lethbridge' and stand the principles of dry farming, and that the pres- ent- year had really been a blessing disguise, because it stimulated the farmers to study, the-matter scienti- fically.

Much ploughing is done where- one trip of a plow over a strip of land is all that is necessary, the discs, pack- ers antl so forth being dragged behind the plows, leaving the land readv for drills. In Montana an agricultural college was created out of government sub- sidies, and recently experimental farms have been extended to each country. He regarded them as a great benefit. The agricultural college was .built and maintained part'lv ,by federal grants and partly by" the state. Questioned by Mr. 'Simpson what displacement of labor on farms was caused by the introduction of steam plows and modern machinery, he said ten' men and forty horses were dis- placed by one engine and four men. The economy is thus about one-half besides time saved, an important ele- ment. A boiler inspector last year had in- formed him there were one hundred and forty-three steam plow outfits in the territory south and east of the city alone.
