Marble Rock Journal (Newspaper) - March 24, 1904, Marble Rock, IowaOpinion of the editor of Nebraska expresses his approval of Amer ican Tri migration to Canada. F during the Winte months the head f the family with the other members As to prospects for the and doubtless one of the most interesting topics discussed is tha of moving to District where it is possible to More easily what is necessary for a comfortable existence where it is an easy Natter to of sufficient farm land to assure a competence for the future. This not Only interests the head of the family every individual Rne fiber of it. Having before me the knowledge Vrh Ere he can secure a with the expenditure of but Little Money it is a Ell for him to obtain All information possible regarding the productiveness of the land in the country that he May select. For several years past a Large number of americans have removed to Western Canada and As nearly As it can be ascertained almost All of these have expressed themselves satisfied with the conditions that exist there. During the past summer a number the editors of farm papers through out the United states made a personal visit on a tour of inspection and the reports of these gentlemen prove interesting Reading. Or. H. Heath editor of the Nebraska a paper enjoying a wide circulation 33 Well As the Confidence of its subscribers after giving some idea of the extent of this wonderful country says Western Canada is the last Uno Ceu pied and unimproved Good agricultural land in America available to he then discusses its possibilities for raising live Stock and the advantages it possesses for Dairying farm ing and wheat growing and says what has been said about the coun try As to the ability of the soil the yield of wonderful crops of wheat is quite to quote further from or. Heath he says referring to climate these people sceptical ones do not know or realize that Altitude More than latitude makes climates that Large bodies of water both fresh and Salt that never freeze Over exert a wonderful influence on climate. An other influence on climate More potent than those named above which applies More to the Alberta District is the warm Chinook Breeze from the Pacific Ocean which is 600 or 700 Miles nearer than Colorado or Wyom ing besides the Rocky Mountain Range is not nearly so High nor half so far from the Ocean As it is Dowa in the states. In further considering the climate of the Canadian Prairies we should not lose sight or the fact of the in fluence of the Rains the total average rainfall for the season is but 13.35 inches for the territories and inches in Manitoba and that the amounts Lang Between april 1st and october 1st Are respectively inches and 12.s7 inches or about three fourths of the entire rainfall. From the Middle of june to the mid dle of july there Are Over two Houra More Daylight in every Twenty four hours than there is in Nebraska. The main reason Why Western Canada wheat grows to such perfection is the effect of solar Light or longer period of Sunshine it gets each Day. This is what makes seeds or Grain mors perfect grown in this country thaa elsewhere. This extraordinary rapid growth of vegetation under the in fluence of this Long continued Sun Shine exceeds anything known in lower latitudes. do not wish it understood thai wheat alone is the main product of this country it leads in that yet it is destined to become famous for us cattle horses and sheep and for its Dairy products. saw More and larger bands of cattle and sheep Graz ing in Assiniboia and Alberta than we Ever saw on the Western Plains of the United states. One band of cattle numbering head were Graz ing on the Rich grass and sheep Wuh out. Number the government of the Dominion of is still using the same energetic efforts which have been used for the past 5 or 6 years to Settle up these Western Prairies and on application to any agent of the Canadian govern ment the settler will be Able to secure a certificate entitling him to a Low rats will give him the Opportunity of visiting any portion of Canada s Grain producing Domain. Telling cattle. Farming is a profession. No other calling offers a Many in to Bright Young Ken As agriculture. It can be done with almost absolute exactness by the Teeth of Domestic animals. One of the great sensations this tear s International was the turning Down of a pen of 15 head of Aberdeen Angus steers two years old and under three by the official veterinarian. A protest had been filed against this Brand j lot of cattle and based upon the i allegation that they were to j Settle the matter the official veterinarian acting for the exposition manage ment examined the Mouths of seven head of the lot of 13 cattle made his report to the effect that two of tie eight were Over three years old. This decision sustained the protest and threw the pen of cattle out of the com petition thus Prelec Ting them from j the grand championship of the Salzer s National Oats greatest Ost of the Century.

This is a most unfortunate occur rence but the veterinarian could Pur sue no other course in the matter As he found two of the animals clearly four years old. Even where but Sis Broad permanent Teeth Are seen the if we note the graduating classes in our higher institutions of learning we will find plenty of Young men preparing to enter the so called professions but comparatively few fitting them selves by study and mental discipline for the profession of farming. A Small portion of these will by reason of Energy and ability and fort Nate combination of circumstances be come eminent and perhaps wealthy but a Large proportion will be called upon to do the Drudgery of their profession and after striving for years will find themselves with less Money and less influence than they would have had in some less attractive but More useful occupation. And the sad thought about this mat Ter is the fact that Many of these Young men left Good farms where a life of enjoyment and Healthfulness could have been followed without a fraction of the annoyance and worry that have come to them in the profession they have followed. They saw Only the Bright Side of the life they selected and recognized Only the dark Side of the farm life. It would be Well for the Young men and Well for the state if in the future there can be More Young men attracted to the profession of farming. say profession for the reason that the knowledge now required to farm successfully is worthy the name profession. One of the most serious obstacles in the Way of such action on the part of Farmers sons in the past has been the indifference and in some instances the antagonism of the so called Agri cultural colleges to such a course. If the manag ers of these institutions would realize the fart As some of them Are already doing that the prime object in establishing these institutions was to Aid agriculture and that the greatest possible Aid they can Render agriculture is graduate men fully equipped to conduct it intelligently and according to the latest scientific meth ods there would be greater demand for agricultural education. There is a difference in results be tween a policy on the part of an institution that attracts Young men to Agri culture and a policy that drives them away from it. No occupation or profession to Day offers the inducements to Young men of Energy and brains As agriculture whether it is considered from the standpoint of the agricultural scientist imparting information or from the standpoint of the practical Farmer applying that information. The tendency is toward the profession of farming and the More that can be done to strengthen the tendency in that direction the better it will be for the Young men seeking a profession for agriculture and the state at Large.

Taking everything into consideration and every Reader will find them corroborated if he will go to the trouble of examining the Mouths of cattle of which he knows the age perfectly.

The Rome grass withstands either drought or excessive moisture and matures quite Early. In discussing the question of grasses before the Maine state Dairy association prof. Hurd said the following Good qualities possessed by the Brome grass make it Cne of the most prom Ising grasses especially for pasture lands. It can endure almost any de Gree of cold and can stand a High temperature during the summer months. It withstands Well either drought or excessive moisture. It matures Early ripens soon after it Heads and live Stock relish it More than any of the grasses with perhaps the exception of Orchard grass. Its feeding value equals that of Timothy. Some fault has been found with this grass because a ten Dency to thicken at the base retards its growth but that seems an advantage. Its real value is in pasture rather than Hay. It stands close grazing is ready earlier than others furnishes late Ture and is worthy of Strong endorse ment. Its chief drawback is the High Price of seed which is sown at the rate of 15 pounds to the acre. A Small Quantity brought to maturity can be grown for seed and will in a measure overcome this difficulty. Wot bigoted. Thought you were a vegetarian but i Ipar you ent Mutton.
