At present, the drainage of these T0.800 '? ?n the farmed lose about two- crops out time in three or four years, they have magnificent crops.

When -T-taBCffff of this state of affairs, the wonder grew within me bow these people fiad the heart to try again. Y$t it Wis an intelligent and apparently thrifty crowd of men that gathered at Swan Quarter. And I couldn't help say ing to' myself: What would such men do with such land' if they had a fair chance, if they were as' nearly sure t>f a harvest as we in the higher counties are.
