they arrived in Wapella, Sask., with

were so "green" and inexperienced

winter they had to work for their

homesteads, and by working for neigh-
bors, they got a few acres broken out.

ase in this vicinity, and all of them
were purchased after we got ours.
All that have them like them. I think
that a man can do one-half more work
with a spreader than by the olJ way.
I find that the spreader works equally
well with al! kinds of manure. I do
not find that a large amount of litter
in the manure makes any difference
with the spreader. Our spreader Is
well built, and we have not had to lay
out a cent In repairs since we had it.
I think the weakest part of the ma-
chine is probably the small chain that
runs the beater. This might break
unless one were very careful to adjust
It, for on very rough land the shaking
would throw it ofT, and then, of course,
it would break. Our mariine holds
forty bushels and is hau;«d by one
pair of horses. We never use more,
and ours is a hill farm. I think a
fairly heavy machine Is the best, but
(he heavier the machine the more
horses that will be required to haul it.

I purchased a manure spreader
three years ago. I can cover about
twice as much with the same manure
by uslug a machine as I can by hand,
and the results per acre are just as
food. Almost every farmer ln my
neighborhood has one and their
nse in the county is increasing.
A man can haul out one-fourth
more manure ln one day than by
the old way, and then he will
whistle and sing as he does up
tho chores at night. It does not make
any difference what kind of manure
you spread with the machine. It will
spread anything. I think it does the
best work with manure consisting of
coarse and fine mixed together. I
have been asked what part of the ma-
chine is the weakest I reply that the
drive chain on the spreader is about
the weakest part of the machine The
machine that I have is the 60-bushei
box, and I think it the most service
able for the ordinary farmer. Two
horses will handle it with case on lev-
el ground if the soil is not too wet.
On uneven ground three horses are re-
quired. The larger machines may be
all right for farmers with large farms

Wet lands are generally unproduc-

farmers are yearly trying to farm land
boss, one a farmer, and one a factory
operator. With each of them I took
tea and listened to their story. "I
hoped to better my condition." said
one. "I thought in time I might make
a home," said another. "I had high
expectations," said the other, and all
said that "I never dreamed it possible
to succeed as I have."
Like Arabian Nights.
Everywhere, on the trains, at the
hotels and ln the family I have been
told successes that reminded me more
of the stories in the Arabian Nights
than of this matter-of-fact workaday-
world. Yields of wheat from 35 to
53 bushels per acre, and of oats of
from 60 to 100 busheis, are numerous

I saw cattle and young horses fat as

that had never tasted grain, and
whose cost to their owners was
almost nothing. At Moosomin I saw a
train load of 1,400 steers en route to
England, that were shaky fat. raised
as above stated. If the older genera-
tion of farmers in Indiana, who have
spent their lives in a contest with
logs and stumps as did their fathers
before them, could see these broad
prairies dotted with comfortable ,
homes, large red barns, and straw
piles innumerable, and the thriving
towns with their towering elevators
Jammed to the roof with "No. 1 hard,"
and then remember that four or five
years ago these plains were tenantless
but for the badger and coyote, they
would marvel at the transformation.
Then if they followed the crowds as
they emerged from the trains and
hurried to the land offices, standing
In line until their respective turns to
be waited on came, and saw with
what rapidity these lands are being
taken, they would certainly catch the
"disease" and want some of it too.

great deal of moisture all the time is

In years when drouth prevails. The
reason Is that water occupies the soli
for so large a portion of each year
that it Is Impossible for the chemical
changes favorable to the elaboration

comes and simply dries up the soil,
which is not then Butted for tho sus-
