Missing the Best Bet "The farmer who robs his so.il to get a big crop is riding for a fall.. Tlie farmer who sniffs at 'new- j fangled' hut successful methods in i agriculture is missing the modern far-! nier's heat bet. The farmer who farms merely to get a crop instead-of to j get a saleable crop is all. right if he j is farming for his hcaUh, .hut he' won't get much else. "A man who fails to make a suc- cess of farming because or his failure' to apply the recognized principles of] 'successful agriculture, or because ofj i his failure to conform to recognized j business principles, lias largely hira-s self to blame. Success today cannot! be, gained by happy-go-lucky meth- ods. "Moreover, the farmer who is too. or suspicious to get together I with his neighbors in order to do co- i operatively what no one can do i alone, is sure lo pay dearly for his I lack of confidence and his incapacity. for team work." A REPLY TO MR. EVANS To the Editor of The Herald: you can find space, please publish the following reply to "Mr. G. M. Evans' last letter, re the weed pro- blem. This reply is in justice to my- self, as well as tij throw more light on the subject. IE the crop of weeds in this or any other country could be 'reduced, it would be a blessing to all concerned. After repeatedly reading about the great loss from weeds and especially about the loss of in the province of Saskatchewan, and hav- ing had some experience, I. thought 1 would try and do my "little bit" in this matter. I fully expected to raise opposition to the ideas put forward, which was much needed to draw con- fuusioris whether the present system in use is the proper one to follow. The weed question may be consid- ered a new one, for tbe reason that the system of fanning or cultivating the land has been changed 'from what it was fifty years ago. Mr. Evans calls on me to give facts and proof to my statements. Well, it would take one year, at least, to give proof that would be accepted without i'dispute. However, there is no ground for believing that the most'.noxious weeds grew from seed, or that they carry 'their own seed. I' have prov- cd this, and have the very best auth- j ority on which to make this statement.' In any case, where the seed is car- ried, or the plant has its seed within itself, the plant is riot ,a weed, but a plant that ia usefitl for food, either to j beast or to man, or to both In an ex- treme case. is u ouiu.suuenient. ft is now up to anyone to contradict it. Prove it falsR, or let it be true, In a former'tetter, I made the state- ment, perhaps in an indirect way, that weeds were of spontaneous growth; that this growth wag more likely to start when the subaoH was thrown on the surface.

BUCKLEY .Sweet Grass Montana ....._____T ____ of August and September were exceed- ingly dry, did he fall to secure a good catch of fall rye, Once started, the I crop provides green pacture in the fall when grass crops are sometimes burned up. When there is a normal fall of snow, rye win winter over In good condition, and provide very ear- ly spring pasture. So long as the crop is not eaten too closely, cattle will not injure the crop by pasturing on it for four of five weeks in the spring. If not pastured longer than this, the crop will yield .1 profitable return in a few weeks for hay, or it may be left to ripen, and will yield from IS to 25 bushels per acre of threshed grain, according to the na- ture of the land. In the matter of keeping the son- thistle in check, this farmer found that the rapid growth of rye gave it a start in the fall and spring, with which the sow thistle could not keep pace. The sow thistle, therefore, grows up weak and spindly until the crop la cut late in July. Once the field is cleared of stocks, surface cul- tivation can at once be given to these weak thistle plants aud millions of them destroyed. So serious is the sow thistle menace In districts of 'Manitoba that any prac- tical method of supressing it will be welcomed 'by all good farmers. STOCK.

E. A. SHARMAN, MANAGER. FARMERS AND FIRE PROTECTION As the fanners of Alberta are reap- ing the greatest harvest in the his- tory of the province, they are apt to forget In the hurry and bustle the pre- caution that is necessary at this time ot the year in the protection of their crops and property from loss by fire. It is the duty of every individual to preserve as far as possible the re- sources of our country, and more es- pecially at such a critical time as this, when our nation is passing through such a crisis as this great 'lamentable war. To completely eliminate, if possible, the destructive "fire waste" should be the motto of every individual as "Weil as the farmer. It may Jiot be amiss to again throw out a few reminders at this season of the year, as a number of the fires are due to carelessness, and we take the following from a press bul- letin issued by J. K. Wilson, Saskat- chewan Fire Commissioner: 1. Burn all fire breeding rubbish, and use every precaution when burn- ing it to keep it away from the build- ings. 2. Do not smoke around your farm buildings, or allow any one else to do it. 3. 'Have'a supply of water and pails on hand for any fire emergency. 4. If you should have occasion to light a match see that it is extinguish- ed before throwing it away. 5. -Do not handle gasoline by artifi- cial light. 6. See thai ashes are deposited in a fireproof receptacle; and, lastly, be sure that you have proper fireguard ploughed all around, your buildings.
