It IE unfortunate that the congress comes at a sea- son when Alberta find themselves Very fully occupied with-threshing .operations, which explains in part the lomewhat lim- ited-attendance from the farms of this province. But notwithstanding all the pub- licity that has been given to the dry-farming congress it is unques- tionably true that the public of Alberta as a whole have failed to comprehend just what this con- gress means. It is the first occas- aiOii upon which the met in Canada, and it is a safe prediction that future assemblies will loom larger in the view of the residents of the prairie prov- inces.
