M. agronomist in charge of dry laud grain investiga- jtious, United States department of agriculture, spoke on "Essentials of .Success in He said in "During 'the last three years I have been connected with, the United States department of agriculture in j the investigation of dry laad: grains. j and has given me exceptional op- portunities to become familiar with needs, growth and development of tour dry lands in all parts of the .jwest. I "My observations have convinced me that of the thousands of people ['locating on these lands less than 50 cent, have any serious intention j 61 remaining as permanent -home- builders. These temporary settlers j will inflict an additional -hardship up- ion every well-meaning settler who I files, upon a homestead for the pur- pose of making it his home. Of the per cent., or less, who are endea- jvor'ing to -develop their claims, few I in-deed have the necessary money with j which to -equip their farms and ;to provide foo-d -and shelter for their families even until1 the first crop can be produced. Consequently, many failures ace occurring each year be- cause of the inability of the -average j homesteader to properly work his land. Lack of money probably cause of more failures among our i farmers than the natural conditions of the country itself-. "This past season, however, has j witnessed more farmers succeeding than ever 'before. New settlers have been able to secure employment from well-established farmers who needed i help and could '-afford it. Practical 'experience in this way has been ac- possible to those in condition; which did not ,exist two or three I years ago. "The men who .are "taking home- steads now understand the require- Irnents of 'better than did Uthc pioneers. They are also better i provided with, money was for- jm-erly the case. v I assistance can yet be given to'the new.and old settlers -alike. man interested "in the per- jmanent, substantial growth, of the west should -discourage future settle- ment 'by moneyless families and en- courage the handling of more live- stock "on the Every settler slipuM be -induced to have a few milk, a-good team of mares, a few ihogs and some poultry.

Progress in Dakota J. H. Sheppcrd, dean and vice di- I M I H i-H-H-l j rector of the North Dakota Experi- station, Fargo, N. Dak., uV the progress of dry land farm- ing in his state. He said in part "The facts that the Dickinson Sub- Station reports a yield of forty-two I bushels of'wheat per acre, I bushels of-oats and. three hundred and I fifty bushels of potatoes that the Beach Demonstration Farm has given j a yield of better. than thirty bushels for more than one season, and that a i steam threshing rig 'was unloaded Medora, in the heart of our Bad Lands and land land country, re- cently, should be evidence enough j that dry land farming is making c.n- 'couraging progress, in Dako' a. j The Edgeley and Williston. Sub-Stii- j tions representing other districts of dry land activities in IsTorth Dakota I-have also made consistent yields and have shown the possibili- I ties of their districts to be far be- yond that which had been assigned to i them before -these investigations were started. i "Our twenty-one demonstration farms, .a 'great majority of which are j in the dry land district, indicate'that good dry land farming methods are I increasing the per acre yields from j fifty to one hundred per cent, as you will be informed through another pa- per" presented at -this congress. This 'indicates the great need of education shy demonstration to the farmers liv- ,'ing in the dry land districts. "Land values .are always features give indication of progress in a district or country. In a large sec- i't-i'on of North Dakota where home- steads were plentiful'in 1904 and 1905 many of which have not been proved .'up and the patents secured are selling i from acre. It I seems to me' that there could be no stronger evidence of the most marked progress on -the part of dry land de- vclopment in our state. Another evi- i'd-ence is the: extension of railroad lines, or. feeding lines, and numerous spur lines over the western map of North Dakota. Railroad offi- i cials look over "a country ,very care- j fully and diagnose its possibilities for j production and support of civiliza- i tion, in dense form, very thoroughly .before they put in the heavy expense i which the building-of a resents.
