PATHFINDER OF DRY FARMING UTAH MAN AT THE CONGRESS ONCE LIVED IN AL- BERTA Utah holds the proud distinction of Laving as a member of her delegation not only the oldest delegate a.t the In- ternational Dry Farming Congress but also the first, to apply dry-farming methods in tho cultivation of the soil and tho successful growth of all kinds ot grain where hitherto it has been deemed impossible to do so. Geo. L. Fnrrell of Smithfleld, Cache County, Utah is in his year. and. but for the silver crown and grey-beard, you might take him for one of the boys. In fact and indeed, he is one of the boys. A 'Pioneer Also of Southern Alberta Not only ia thin sage of Dry-Farm methods a pioneer in that connection, but he is also one of the pioneers of Cardston, the oldest district between Lethbridgo and the International boundary. Jlr. Farrell came to ston with the first settlers in 1S87 and took up a homestead. He applied his dry-farming methods at that early date and no doubt inspired his col- leagues with tlie wisdom which has ruade them so suocessiui. The- large house Mr. Farrell built still stands in the center of Lbe now thriving town of Cardston just across the street from the Spencer-Stoddard Club Rooms. Like Father, Like Son Mr. Fan-ell's sons are following in his foot-steps, his son David being a professor -iu the leading agricultural College of the Stato of Idaho and a prominent lecturer and advocate of Dry Farming. Another son, George, who resides in the vicinity of Salt Lake City is a most successful farm- er through the appreciation of Dry Farming methods and "cops" a good- ly share ot the 'prizes and trophies at the XTUih. State Fair. fesms To Be Glad to Get Back Again. Questioned as to Southern Alberta, Mr. Farrell expressed great pleasure at being 'back once again. "I am sur- prised to witness such wonderful de- velopment all along the line and es- pecially .between Coutts' and Stirling, anil Stirline and said Mr. "Much as f was impressed with Southern Alberta twenty years ago. I never dreamed such progress could or would be nifids in so short a time. 1 am pleased to be back again to sec so many old friends and to find such a remarkable interest being tak- en in Dry Farming. 1 have spent the major portion of my days advertising and advocating Dry Farming and it makes my heart rejoice to see the scientific truths bearing fruit and iviii- u-ng converts from all parts of tho Sfobe."

BROTHERHOOD OF NATIONS EMPHASIZED AT CONGRESS One of the Features of the Formal Opening, When the Lieutenant Governor Declared the Congress Minister of 'Agriculture Commends Dry Farming Number of Splendid Speeches Tho lingo Congress auditorium had rapidly tilled to overflowing. The slanting -rays of the bright Alberto sun. Altering through the spacious Windows, lighted up a.unlntio scene that was at onco a remarkable trl- hitte to the brotherhood ot nations, and nu effectively dramatic opening moment for what will go down into history in a few days as the greatest Congress of Agriculture Unit h'ls ever gathered. Two thousand people stood bare- headed on the floor of the hall, the king's representative brilliant in un- iform and surrounded toy the delegates of the nations and scientists and ag- riculturists of fame, stood at atten- tion while ibefore them 'waved the Hags of fourteen countries and be- hind thorn a mighty chorus of voices burst into the song of the nations, the international anthem. It was an Improve snene, that which marked the formal opening the seventh session of the internat- ional dry-farming congress, which has in tho short space of six years sprung into fame as the "most important of all farm congresses, it was a scene which gave the congress, great as It has become, an even greater sig- nificance, the significance of a com- munity of nations, a universal brother- hood in a vast movement for the bet- terment of agriculture as the tmiii- dation of. all national wealth and side of ttie king's resplen- dent representative were ranged men of all nationalities, one m aim and purpose, united'in IbU effort. Centreing the group, beside the lleut- governor. were Canadian and Amen, lean agriculturists of note, Hon. Ma. tin Burrell, dominion minister ot ag- riculture, Hon. Duncan .Marshall, ram, ister of agriculture in Alberta, Ur. Wldstce president of the Congress, Ur Worst, past' president the con-, g-ress and an -agricultural professor. On the extreme :Mt was His cy Lung China's dapper little representative, and-beside him stood the brilliant -Persian philosopher and diplomat, His Excellency Mirza All Khan. On the extreme right was Cav- Ooudl Hossatl, Italy's clever del- egate And while all these stood with bared'- head, the o harmonious yo't; of the greo.t clioir rose, in the heart- stirrins song of the nations. The Great Keynote of Brotherhood With the vast audience attuned to this keynote of international brother- hood, it remained for the brilliant, little Persian, putting to shame the in his perfect contrcl of pure English, sweeping me popu-1 lance by storm with his fiery oratory, I to strike deeper the note of universal effort, to a strong dramat- ic climax an impa'sslonsd utterance of the hope that the congress in its ef- forts towards the betterment of uni- versal agriculture, should through this medium become a great factor in the futherance of world peace. Opened under such auspicious cir- cumstances, the seventh international dry-farming congress gives promise of being what ia already predicted by the officials, the greatest convention if its kind ever held on the American :ontinent, the greatest not only in j lumbers, greatest not only in the acellence and the magnitude of agri- culture exhibits, the greatest not only in the number of important subjects mder discussion, and, the amount of knowledge of farming methods to be [isseminated, but. the gieatest also j n scope and in international spirit, j ;nd it is without a doubt that when j Lhe congress comes to a conclusion 1 next. Saturday evening, it will have been given an impetus along for greater lines than have ever been dreamed, that, will maintain its Impor- tance before the World so long as igriculture continues to be the foun- dation of wealth. The Formal Opening At four o'clock yesterday afternoon the famous Cardston choir took posit- in on the platform of the auditorium nd rendered impressively the inter- j ..ational anthem. This was followed by a solemn and eloquent invocation by Rev. T. P. Perry, pastor Of the Methodist church. Lieutcnant-Governor Btilyoa thcii de- livered his opening address, and by Command of his royal highness the Duke of Connaught, formally declared the congress open. This was followed by an address of elcome by 'Mayor George Hatch, who extended the freedom of the city to all the delegates and wished that they might find comfort and happiness while within the gates of the city. Chairman Downer of the ird of Control, (hen delivered hi In opening the session, Liout-tJov- t-rnor Uulyea delivered tho following address: ".Mr. Chairman, delegates to tho Seventh Annual Session of the Inter-, national Dry-Farming Congress, lad- ies and gentlemen "It is my pleasant duty today to extend to you the greetings of his Koyal Highness the Governor-General of Canada and his heart-felt wishes! for tho success oi your deliberations.
