In part MrrMac- intosh said It is an acknowledged fast- thaf .tlic present season has been one of al- most unprecedented drouth, extending over the greater part of the semi-arid land of the west, and has, offered a severe test to the dry fann- ing system. To show the seventy of 'the test, the rainfall iu Macleod, for this season was 1.33 inches. But in spite of this there are many paving crops of both winter and sprint; wheat, yields of which run from' 10 to 35 bushels per acre, according to methods of cultivation and prepara- tion of the. seed bed. Wherever _the- Campbell method of soil Ullage 'has put into practice there is :a.pay- ing crop in evidence. The farmer whose rule and method is biennial cropping need have no fearvof raising a profitable crop in a year of-severe drouth.
