EXPERTS TRIBUTE TO
WESTERN CANADA SOIL
That there Is good reason for the
wonderful crops of grain grown in
Western Canada, which have made-
thousands of former residents of the
United States wealthy, is not always
given the thought that it deserves is
quite apparent. But that there must
be a reason is quite evident. Proba-
bly more than one—but the one that
requires emphasis—is that the soil 1
of the nature that will produce good
crops. It was not long since that the
farmer selected his land in the most
haphazard way. He need not do so-
today. He will select it on the soil
analysis plan. Soil from Western
Canada was submitted to Prof. Siev-
ens, soil physicist of the State College
of Washington, at Pullman, Wash. His
report should no doubt further encour-
age settlement in Western Canada. It
rends as follows:
"We have analyzed this sample and
find that it runs high In lime, very
high in potash, phosphorus and in ni-
trogen ; that it has a splendid supply
of organic matter and Is in the best
of physical condition. There is noth-
ing wrong with this soli from the
standpoint of crop production, nnd I
am satisfied that it will give splendid
results wherever put under cultiva-
It is soil like this properly worked,
nnd on scientific lines, as is the
rule today, that gives the opportunity
to quote the experiences of farmers
who have increased their incomes,
from $500 to $30,000 in two seasons,
and whose story would read as fol-
"I have threshed altogether 7,000
bushels of No. 1 Northern wheat from
200 acres, which went from 24 to 5ff
per acre—sod breaking 24, spring:
plowing 36, back setting 56 bushels—
the average being 35 bushels per acre."
The newspaper giving an account of
this man's experience says: "When he
disposed of his 1,600 acres from north,
of Brooks, Alta, to four Oak narbor
men, he was worth $30,000. Two years:
ago he came here with $500 and a few-
It is the soil of Westerp Canada,,
and the knowledge of what it will do
that brings to Canada the hundreds of
settlers that are daily arriving at the
border. A growing enthusiasm for the
fertile prairie lands of Western Can-
ada is spreading all over the continent.
This enthusiasm is the recognition of
the fact that sufficient food could be
produced on these prairie lands to-
feed the world. From the south, east
and west, hundreds of men, too old for
military service, are pouring into
Western Canada to take up land or
to work on the farms. A great many
of the incoming settlers have arrived
at such central points as Calgary, Ed-
monton, nnd Lethbridge, Alberta, and
at Regina, Moose Jaw, and Saskatoon,.
Saskatchewan. Judging from the bulk"
of their household effects, the number
of their horses and cattle, nnd the-
quantity of implements they are bring-
ing with them, most of the new ar-
rivals also seem well blessed with the
Reports from North Portal, Sas-
katchewan ; Coutts, Alberta, and Kings-
gate, British Columbia—the principal
gateways into Western Canada from
the United States—Indicate that the
present Influx of farmers Is in such,
volume as has not been witnessed for
many years. From Vancouver, Brit-
ish Columbia, people are going to the
prairies for summer farm work, many
with the intention of taking up land
themselves at the end of the summer.
The influence of this tide of farmer
settlers on greater food production will
be more readily appreciated when it
Is considered that the nverage settler
takes up at least twice ns much land
as he has hitherto been farming—and
land which, acre for acre, produces bet-
ter and larger crops.—Advertisement-
Luffington had called up to his wife:
"Are you ready, dear?"
"In one minute, darling." came the
response down the stairs.
"Matrimony," soliloquized Luffing-
ton, as be lighted a fresh cigar, "does
not dispel all our Illusions. Before
our marriage I thought every moment
I had to wait for her was an eternity,
and so it has turned out to he."
