PETER LUND HAS BIG FARM U is One of the Finest Sights in Wardner District The Cranbrook Herald says: The motor drivo from this city to iier is among the' moat interesting in tliis vicinity. The country through] which one passes is 111 matiy respects j very there are long stretch-j es of-opi'ii roiling land, but more 01" i fairly heavily timbered. Water ap-j ucjirs to he plentiful and 'the soil j looks good. Travelling mile after mile through this "section, one is! struck by the comparative absence of cultivation, such ranches as there are J do no't appear to be highly cultivated, although that of George Arnold is in first-class shape. 'Seeing all this unused is forced to asif oneself, can it be made produc- tive The answer comes clear and unmistakable upon arrival at Ward- ner, where one sees what can he done with just sucli land. At Wiirrincr Mr. P.. Lund Jv.s under cultivation upwards of''200 acres just the same class of land as one had been travelling through all ths way from Cranbrook. The sight of the crops on this laud-is little .less than marvelous and is the surest proof that the great bulk of the land lie- twuen.this ci.ty and IVardner and from Wardncr on to Jaffray might well te occupied and producing tlip very pro- duels this province is'most In need of and for which .there must always he an increasing demand from the' prai- rie .provinces.. Sir. P. Lund's farm, is a splendid example of what can be done with tlie comparatively high, dry, timber-', ed lands of this section. Some three j. years ago Mr. Lund commenced clear- j ing and cultivating in the close vicin-j ity of Wardner. He went at it on a. big scale and. can today, that his venture was a wise one. Such crops as are to be seen on his land cannot he excelled anyw.herc. One is particularly struck a large field of potatoes, some 87 acres in then there follow large bidets de- voted to every kind of vegetable and j root, crop, all growing Ut perfection. Right opposite the station is a. block of 17 acres devoted to potatoes, containing what promises to be a wonderful crop. In this field is plant- ed a young orchard of 500 fruit trees, and upon inspection these trees were found to Ire well. Mr. Lund has arranged for the thorough irrigation of" his farm, if need be. Irrigation has not been re- quisite this year, and Mr. Lund be- lieves that with proper cultivation it will never be necessary, although he has prepared for that and purposes making greater preparations for irrigation on a large scale. He lias in contemplation the (jamming of a lake; back of his property which provide storage facilities and will supply adequate water for some 1500 acres. Nothing more hopeful, or more fuller of promise: for the future of the Crnnhrook district could be desired than the results obtained by Mr. Lund ner. It is -a splendid object lesson, that should be taken to heart by the provincial authorities and by every person conccnifd in establishing mix- ed farming in this section of the pro- vince upon a stable basis.
