This will be the most spacious motion picture theatre in thu city as will scat 500 people.

The newly formed company, Farm Pro ducts Ltd., in which are found mos of the leading irrigationists of UK district, have decided that they wil make every effort to induce tho C.

It was pointed out that invariably tho farmers were unable to take off their crops and j prepare for fall irrigation before Oc- board tobor 1. so that irrigation to them is practically useless. They want tho water left on lill November 1 at least. The company's answer to this re- quest, has always boon that if the wa- ter is loft in the ditches till Novem- ber i it will freeze there. Then in the spring when they wish to start repair work on the ditches are unable to do so until very late. The answer of the farmers to this is that they would rather have tho water late in the fall than early in the spring. For grain crops fall irri- gation is all that is necessary lo carry the land through, probably forj the whole y-ear; nt least for the ea Her pan of the growing season, an until the grain is up enough to cover tlie ground. They also point out that whether the ditnhes are deared of earl; in the fall or not they will fill with snow during tho winter, so that there is as much water in them In the spring n fliiy even: as if the water were left on till November 1.
