visitors at the Exporiniontnl
Farm last week, and in company
with Foreman Larson wero ar

interest to tho public to know
what our farm is doing and this
will bo an excellent way to show
them. , Altho handicaped for
means, the .result of this year's
work" is splendid. Our farmers
should take advantage of these
experiments, and visit the farm.
Our attention lias been called by
several in regard to the water situ
ation. For some time, there lias
been no water in the city ditch.
This is true in spina districts juul
people who hare taken much euro
with their lawns, shrubs', .and
flowers have no wilder to kccp.tluuu

would lie the case should a. lire
break out and no water in the
ditches. Can this be remedied
and have water in the ditches.
