Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 29, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY. OCTOBER 29. 1018 Tim LFrrMBRinoF, dah,? hkrald PAGE THREE J THE POSSIBILITES OF mRlGATIOK PLEAD NOT GUILTY Wheat on one of the Veterans* FarmS, near Tilley, Alberta, WHAT BurjWtBeB � porson meet when UwoUlng; through th* tirlBntod arouH of Soutbara 'Alberta la tlie woadovtul variety of crops that c�n auccBBsfulIy Brown ,'tUero, their abuQdant yl�lAf, and their wtoallent quality.

By the application o' 51^ icater the crops of clover and the (many varletlea ot mrtrltloug tame Sf P Kraoses are multlpliod manifold. In ftbe gardens vegetablOB of all kinds, llncludfng those that are asHOnlated Ivlth hotter cllmos, such as tomatoes, rmelone, gquarfMjs, grow In the open ao -well as to indicate great poaslblU-ties In thla dlroatlon. 1 Wheat, of course,- Is the dominant Jerop there as It Is In those areas of [Western Canada where Irrigation Is not practised. Osts, barley and flax are also grown extensively. The yields of all these grains compare very favorably with those In any other part of the west. Crops of iwheat this season that have been pro-iperly irrlffated are averaging thlrty-Ifive bushels to the acre. Some crops win thresh as high as forty bushels or more to the acre. The yields of other grains are equally as good. lOraln growing under Irrigation ftrlngs ample returns to the farmer, lespeclally when It Is considered that lunltorm results may be looked for ievery year. But, yielding such good returns as {the growing of grain does, other jeropfl that may bo grown under Irrigation are possibly still more profit-iable, and It seems reasonable to aup-jTOae that In years to come the grower;; of grain In districtp. whe?e water Squash grown with Irrigation at Brooks, 'Alberta. and excellent flavor, cantaloupes, watermelons, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, to say nothing of giant cauliflowers and cabbages, -aarly and late, and all varieties, carrots, turnips, beets, all kinds ot beans and many other vegetables flourish; and which produce the most delicious .strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and other small fruits-this land will, no doubt, be used to grow rnoro ot these things in the future, nsneclally when labor conditions are such as to enable a more intensive aystem of fanning to bo follqwed. Then, there are the fodder crops, of which alfalfa Is tW chief. Contrary to a widespread belief, It Is not grain, not fruit growing, not truck gardening, but to the growth of fodder crops that the greater imrtlnn of the irri- ... ,. ,_____ ... gable lands in the United States are Ib'available will be to .-lome extent I devoted.

Ni't only plowed up gives considerably larger yields. It makes possible the development to the highest degree of tJie live stock industry. Horses, cattle.' sheep and pigs all like It. Combined with okta, barley, the clovers and grasses which grow abundantly in Southern Alberta, alfalfa enables the Irrigation farmer to give his stock the best balanced food possible. He is thus able to get the most milk from his cows, the most wool from his sheep, and to have his cattle, nlsrg and lambs ready for market In the earliest possible time. No wonder there Is prosperity wherever alfalfa grows. The advantage to the farmer of a great dlverally of crops cannot be too greatly emphasized. He is able to make his plans for the future with greater certitude. He can devote his chief attention to crops that remunerate him best. He Is not greatly Influenced by the fluctuations of the markets, and when any of his products are down others are likely to be up. It thus makes for greater stabilization of IMs p"ort?, and as- are the yields of alfalfa lar?:e, but sures him-nf a regular and steady in this crop also enriches the soil to:come year after year. such an extent that any othfr crop �Kharo DUnjnklns of enormoua size j grown on the land after it has been J.
