IRRIGATION TALK
Government ^Lecturer Enlightens the Farmers on
the Subject
V. D. Curry, government lecturer
on irrigation visited Grand Forks on
Monday of this week and gave several practical talks that ivere of great
interest.
In the afternoon Mr. Curry proceeded to the Doull ranch where a
practical demonstration of irrigation
was intended; as the water was not
turned on, however, the meeting
turned into a most informal discussion in which all took active part
many pracrical points being brought
out by the farmers and by Mr. Curry with profit to all.
From here the majority of those
attending went to the famous Covert
ranch and were delighted by the
beauties there seen; the prune and
cherry trees were particularly well
loaded while all trees showed beautiful and green and thriving. The
damage done by the unusually severe
winter was in evidence on the more
tender fruits but is not serious.
Mr. Covert gave a line exhibition
of his irrigating system throwing a
heavy stream of water 150 feet and
heavily drenching all the ground
within that radius and the length of
the hose. The power of the stream
was surprising when it is considered
that it was given by the water flowing into the pipes above without any
nse-voir. Mr. Curry spoke very
highly of tbe efliciency of this system while its effect on the trees and
vegetables between was easily seen.
In the evening Mr. Curry lectured
to a good audience in the council
chamber. He first expressed his
surprize at the advancement of the
valley as seen during his visit and
declared it a pronounced success.
Irrigation he proceeded was needed
as an assurance to make farming and
fruit growing certain and more highly profitable, with the very best results.
Irrigation laws had been improved
of late; the record Bystem had confused the issue but now the government had arranged to conserve to
the farmers the water available by
storage or otherwise.
For this valley a gravity system
would be best if practicable. By using the streams available, witb storage dams and reservoirs such might
be accomplished. A pumping plant
coult take water from the Kettle riv
er, using power from the power company that now has record and other
rights in the valley including ownership of lands of their own. By forming a municipality or an incorporated company for irrigation purposes
arrangements could he made for such
a system.
According to the new laws a reservoir could be made somewhere
above this point on the river and the
water thus conserved would belong
to the company no matter what records were already obtained. The
pumping system would entail less
ditching and pipe lines. Perhaps a
company could be formed to co-operate with the power company as to
a system for the whole valley. He
would not recommend any particular
system without further study of local conditions.
The law now gives the use of the
water to those who will store it or
will divert it for irrigation so long
as it is turned back into the stream
above any records established. In
United .States 850,000 has often been
spent to raise water one foot on a
1000 acre lake; in this province $500
would frequently do five times that
work. Two and a half feet for each
acre is sufficient storage for reserve
where the natural How is already
preempted by recorded rights. In
United States a company can sell
bonds for irrigating ourposes as soon
as they found a feasible plan; the
same should apply here. A large
enough plant should be put in at the
first or arrangements made to duplicate the system by another pipe-line
alongside.
Mr. Curry explained that he lived
near Kamloops where the rainfall
was slight and the stream available
for irrigating gave him a very small
flow. He had discovered that by
proper cultivation he could conserve
the water in the soil, and then he
discussed the system of Dry Farming
so fully dealth with in this paper by
Mr. Cooper who has made it a great
local success.
In growing potatoes he combined
dry farming and irrigat on giving
the potatoes a good soaking once before in flower and once when in
flower, but never more than this
twice; with irrigation the fault is
generally too much water and not
enough cultivation. Many farms in
this valley no doubt would produce
good renults with cultivation only,
but some soils with a loose gravel
sub-soil need irrigation also, while
eved rich deep soil, heavy loamy or
ltght, can be made sure in exceptionally dry seasonB and more productive in normal seasons.
When to apply water and how
much might be found out by observation only; so long as soil is damp
enough a few inches down so that a
handful will hold together when
squeezed. Irregular irrigating after
potatoes are formed may cause them
to first form a rind when drouth occurs and then start to grow when
watered and bulge out through every
eye; other vegetables show as unfavorable results from similar cause.
Potatoes should never be hilled up
hut should be regularly cultivated
in flat rows.
Manuring by barnyard manure
plowing it in deep in the fall seems
to be best; change of seed is absolutely necessary frequently with potatoes
Some districts are branding their potatoes on the bags with the namo
and their district all growing the
same variety and keeping up its
quality. The same procedure with
fruit would give a ready market at
good prices.
The flooding system of irrigation
is one of the best and most economical on lands that will no bake. Open soils waste the water if ditches
are used ns the upper ditch soaks the
soil too much and the lower part gets
too little. Water soaks vertically
faster than laterally.
To make a temporary dam to divert water from a ditch take a pole
and tack a canvass or gunny sack to
it; lay the pole across the ditch and
pull the canvas up the ditch the way
the water will come; throw a few
shovels of soil onto it and when the
water comes it will float mud onto
the canvas and make a sufficient
dam; when not needed the canvas

To prevent wasting oF soil on hillsides use the basin system; that is,
carry the water along the side of the
hill and moke a shallow cup nround
each tree. A ribbon of grass alongside a ditch can be used to help regulate the How into smaller ditches;
a V shaped outlet through the grass
can be used to advantage.
As to comparing fruit raised by
irrigation or without the argument
was generally based on over-irrigation as against good cultivation under good conditions, or cultivating
n poor conditions as against proper
irrigating. Sufficient water with
proper cultivation will produce ideal
fruit whether the water is conserved
by dry farming or put on by irrigation or rain.
Special points of interest brought
out were that twelve inches of water
is sufficient for fruit growing; that if
the soil can be by any means be kept
damp enough two inches down to
hold together when equalized it is
sufficient; and that trees should not
be irrigated after August till after
they become dormant, when they
may be again watered if there is
danger of injury through dryness in
winter, as sometimes happens.
A hearty vote of thanks was tendered Mr. Curry on vote of the chairman, A. D. Morrison, president of
the association, and seconded by
Fred Clark, secretary.

An Olter Which Meets the Special Wants of All Classes of Readers
The Western Canadian reading public is made up chielly of these classes
Persons who have lived in the West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies tho former resident of Eastern Canada with news of tho
Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Grand Forks Sun provides
tlielocal and Boundary news, which you cannot do without.
[FROM TBE BOOK OF GOOD COUNSELS.]
Seeing how the sonrma wasteth, seeing how the ant-hill grows,
tattle adding unto little, live, give,
learn, as life-time goes.
Drops of water falling, falling, fulling,
brim the chatty o'er;
Wisdom ciniies in little lessons—little
gains make Largest store.
Men their cunning schemes may spin—
Uud knows who sliall lose or win.
Shoot a hundred shafts, the quarry
lives and Hies—not dne to death;
When his hour is come, a grass-blade
hath a point to stop his breath.
Robes were none, nor oil of unction,
v. hen the King of Beasts was
crowned:—
'Twas his own tierce roar proclaimed
hiin,rolling all his kingdom round.
Oh, the bitter salt of service!—toil,
frost, fire, are not so keen:—
Half such heavy penance bearing, tender consciences were clean.
What but for their vassals,
Elephant and man—
Swing of golden tassels,
Wave of silken fan—
But for regal manner
That the "Chattra" brings,
Horse, and foot, and banner—
What would come of kings!
The Monkey drew the sawyer's wedge,
and died:—
Lot meddlers mark it, and be edified.
The Ass   that  hee-hawed, when  the
dog should do it,
For his lord's welfare, like an ass  did
rue it.
At the work time, asking wages—is it
like a faithful herd?
When   the   work's   done,    grudging
wages—is that acting like a lord?
Serve  the Sun   with  sweat of body;
starve thy maw to feed the ilnmc;
Stead thy lord with all thy service; to
thy death go, quit of bliinie.
Many a prayers for him are uttered
whereon many a life relies;
'Tis but one pe.or fool the fewer when
the gulping Raven dies.
Give thy Dog the merest mouthful,
and he crouches at thy feet,
Wags his tail, and fawns, and grovels,
in his eagerness to eat;
Bid the Elephant he feeding, and the
best of fodder bring;
Gravely—after much entreaty—condescends that mighty king.
By their own deeds men go downward,
by them men mount upward all,
Like the diggers of a well, and like
the builders of a wall,
Hushes down the hill the crag, which
upward 'twas hard to roll:
eSo to virtue slowly rises—see to vice
quick sinks the soul.
Who speaks unasked, or conies iinliiil,
Or counts on favor—will be chid.
Wise, modest, constant, ever close at
hand,
Not weighing but obeying all command,
Such servant by a Monarch's throne
may stand.
Pitiful, that fearing  failure, therefore
no beginning makes,
Who   forswears   his  daily dinner for
the chance of stomach-aches?
Nearest to tho King is dearest, be thy
merit low or high;
Women, creeping plants, and  princes,
twine round that whicli  groweth
nigh.

Temperance Lesson. Rom. xiii:8-14.
Golden Text—Put ye on the Lord
Jesus Christ.— Rom. xiii:14.
Verse 8—Is it always sinful to go
into debt, when you have no visible
wuy of paying it?
Is it right, or wrong, to go into debt
when you have nothing to pay with,
if your creditor knows your circumstances?
Is u business man who has honestly
failed in business and given up all ho
has to his creditors, under moral obligation to pay the balance of the
debt, if he makes enough money to do
so out of future business?
Under modern business conditions, j
and the law of love and righteousness,
when wholesalers sell on time, or give
an adequate discount for cash to retail-1
rs. why are not the debts of an lion-1
rent bankrupt   retailer, the  legitiinnta
cess of his creditors in  common   with
himself?
Wherein consists the folly and sin
of the wage-earner in constant work,
getting into debt?
Is it the duty of everybody to love
everybody, the bad and the good, enemies and friends?
What is the advantage of loving ev
erybody, to ourselves, and to those
whom we love/
Verses 9-10—Give reasons, outside
of the Bible, that will cover all circumstances, why it is always wrong to
disobey these hve moral prohibitions.
(This question must he answered iu
writing by members of the club.)
Must all such acts, as are here forbidden, contravene the law of love to
make tliem sinful; for example, if you
had to kill a man who was about to
kill one of your loved ones, would that
be sinful!
Can an act be wrong that works out
for the good of all parties?
Verses 11-12—If you knew you had
to die inside of a month, what effect
would that have upon your intentions
and actions, so far as God is concerned; and if it would change these
in the least, does it not prove that
you are now living wrong and are in
danger?
Most people are morally and spiritually asleep, and many are far into
the night; what are the conditions
which should suddenly startle such
into full consciousness, as to their
danger, and their duty!
Verse 13—How is it that the night
is the time selected fo.- so many bad
deeds?
Should a man ever do a thing which
he is ashamed for his best friends and
neighbors to know!
Does the popular conscience generally, or always, represent God's attitude to a thing; or are there some
things God may be pleased with which
tho community would condemn as
wrong, or vice versa?
Ho'V is it that bar rooms are gener-
erally   screened   off   from the public
Why is it a crime for a man to get
drunk?

Why do most drunkards get drunk
in the night,or away from public guze?
Does the drink habit generally lead
to the other four grave evils mentioned
in verse thirteen?
Verse 14—What is the sure remedy
for the drink habit, and all kindred
evils of the flesh!
Does putting on Jesns always mean
putting on strength so we can control
all the pasfions of the body, and the
ambitions of the soul?

NEWS OF THE CITY
H. J. McDonald, of Anaconda, B.
C, who was in the city last Saturday,
furnished The Sun with the following
valuable recipe for protecting fruit
trees from moles and other destructive
vermin: "Dig a trench around Ihe
tree an inch or two deep, and wrap
a piece old newspaper from the Appeal to Reason around it. Then replace the dirt in the trench. I have
treated all the trees in my orchard in
this manner, and 1 find that no self-
respecting animal will go near them."
Mrs. Ida L. Barnum wishes to   an
nounce to the public that she has
moved The Wonder store to Riverside
avenue and Main street, at her mother's cleaning establishment, and kindly requests the continued patronage of
the ladies of the city and vicinity.
She is now in a position to sell cheaper than ever before.
