THE CANADIAN VIEWPOINT
Til Community 1 in burnt Plea
Miniatvr of Agriculture
AS THE result of the
recent visit of United
States Secretary of Ag
riculture, David F. Hous
ton, and Canadian Min
ister of Agriculture, Mar
tin Burrell, those two
Iry eminent authorities dined
'( i ufr together in Washington
recently. Both were keenly interested in
the agricultural problems which are being
so successfully solved in the Sand Hill sec
tion and largely through rural organiza
tion and co-operation, and both were
enthusiastic over the character of the
climate as an all the year land of liberty
and living; Minister Burrell especially so
because of the speedy manner in which he
rallied under its bracing atmosphere from
his recent illness.
Minister Burrell discussed in an inter
esting and instructive way the problems
which confront his Government. ' ' The
Federal Government and the Provinces,
of Agriculture is the inspection of all
seed offered for sale in the Dominion. If
a Government agent finds the seed that
the stores are selling to the farmers is not
what it is represented to be the Govern
ment prosecutes the party responsible for
the deception. If A myriad of publica
tions are issued by the Department on
every subject in relation to farm work.
Among these is the Agricultural Gazette. ' r
None of Minister Burrell 's remarks are
of interest to the local people quite so
much as his account of the profitable
farming which is being carried on on the
sand soil of British Columbia. "This, "
lie said, " is often very deep, loose and
light. Irrigation, which entails heavy ex
pense, is also necessary. They raise but
one crop a year, nevertheless the soil is
very valuable and is wonderfully produc
tive. Great yields of fruit and potatoes
are made on it."
The distinguished visitor was most in
terested in the account of the development
of agriculture in the Sand Hills and was
.agreeably surprised to learn that tho

first of all," he said, "are working to
gether for better agriculture in Canada.
Agricultural schools are being established
for those who do not care to go or who
are unable to go to the high schools or
colleges on completion of the common
school course. Courses in all lines of
agriculture are given. These schools which
are often run in conjunction with the
experiment stations, are proving popular
and useful. On the day one is opened two
hundred or more pupils may present
themselves for admission.
' ' Canadian farmers, like United States
farmers, are slow to take up co-operation.
However, where the conditions have
forced them to it as in the marketing of
fruit, excellent results have been obtained.
Co-operative creameries and other at
tempts at concerted action have also done
well in some sections of the Dominion.
1f District representatives who work much
as our farm demonstrators do, are also
doing a great work for better agriculture.
"Another interesting detail of the
great work of the Canadian Department
farmers here had perfected so complete
and earnest a co-operative federation and
that without State or National aid.
