There is nothing anw unilcr the sun It has heon discovcrorl that irri(?g-tion worlcs existed in Arizona long before Columlius discovered America. An investigation by the Geological Survey has hrought to light the ruin of an ancient canal, twenty feet Ixi-low the present surface, consitructed in prehistoric times, and in order to I prevent tlic scorching cliniato from drinking up the water Ixifore it could be tlistributed over the fields the canal had been lined with some of cement whjch has withstood the eleinonts for ccmturios. Today iii the same country, in the vicinity of Phoc nix alone, there are more than 500 inilc�s of canals and ditches and more than 300,000 acres of cul.tivatcd fields, producing cereals and gras.ses of every kind, and even tropical products for luxury as well as necessity. But the secret of the ancient canal builders who con.structed their ditches so as to save the last drop of water remains unsolved. To the Editor. Will you kindly a!,lt)W me to direct the Htlonlion of your readers to a Weed which has only ntenlly inndc its nppoarancv in Alberta. It is the 1 Perennial Sow Thistle, a plant which; is causing a gix-at �eod I and now have tl>o sow thistle arc, said to longing for the days when: they had nothing worse than the j aVink weed. A "well grown plant pro-' duces a givvit number of (low..'rs and | they in turn a givat number of scvds so that the pos.sihilily of one plant projjogating itsi'lf are mukiplied e"-. ormously. The fioxwring is yellow, very Ijike that of the d indelions, and like it alsd each seed is attachoereniiinl and run al-i.ng in Ihtf earth sending out shoots every few inches, so that this is an-oth(r source of rapid propogation. The plant is easily known, anil it ha.s fortunately, a few outstanding fea-tuivs by which it may be ivadily sec-ognized. The leaves are glossy given, shajvd something like tho.'^e of a dandelion, but with prickles on the edges. The ir.ckles are not \ory sharp. Ther,> is usually a cluster of flowers on Ihoj top of the stalk and the flower is from one and a half to two inches across. .M very imi)orlant point is that the (lower heads and the stalks for an inch are coveretl with a cpJan-tity of short hairs. The root, of course, is a runner, and the juice is milky, the height of tho plant is in the neighborhood of two feet. There is not much of this weed in the country yet and we don't want any nioiv. Knowing the eneni.v is half the battle and if everybody would e.xami,ne the yL'llow (lowers on their places and destro.v them when found, a great .sHep woul.d be taken towards keeping it under control. Anyone finding any of these thistles should communicate with the Department of Agriculture at Edmonton where also the plants will bo identified in cases of doubt. Thanking you in anticipation. AKOM.

In order lo get acquainted i-.hiiew fact.'^ ccncerning the problems on the farm, it is well to make the aciiuain tanc? of the be.'^'t and most success'-ful farmers in the neighborhood: They have impro\.il methods and are taking advantage of every opportun-it.v to learn moiv about ihei.- cbo.sen occupation, and aii' making it a bus-ines.s as much as the succes.s-fiil manufacturer is doinir along his line.

The agricultural colleges and experiment stations have been, and are still, busy, studying ways and means of as.^i8tiing the man on the farm to attain to better results. Manitoba now has her own agricultural college whose halls are full to overflowing with young men rich in experiences gained from actual work on the farm These young men fc^l the need of ne^' and better methods. They ara on the threshold of life, full of vigor and enthusiasm and born of a love for the country with all its clo.sene.s3 to nature and to nature's God.
