FROM THE CANADIAN
United States Settlers Becoming
Rich on Western Canada
The largo number of United States
settlors coming to tho Western prov
lnces of 'Canada nro easily explained
by the case of Mr. O. Lacy, late of
Wisconsin and Inter of Alberta.
Mr. Lacy came to Cunnda from Wis
consin In tho summer of 1914 with
$l,r00 nvnllnblo ensh In his possession.
! Ho rented a half-section of partly Im
proved land In Alberta nnd commenced
surhmer fallowing. He broke 800 acres
with oats, 20 with barley, nnd 200 with
wheat. Also ho had two cows and 20
head of young live stock. He was for
tunato In buying feed nt a bnrgaln and
managed to rent the adjoining quarter
section as pasture.
A few weeks ago he decided to real
ize his profits nnd they amounted to
$0,000 absolutely clear from the crop
and tho stock.
W. J. Wiustcad, of Brooks, Alberta,
"I landed In Brooks, March 18th,
1010, with one car of household effects,
and nine bend of good horses, and less
than $500 In cash. I have put $1,000
worth of Improvements on my farm. 1
have 31 head of cattle, 10 head of
horses, debts all paid, a new automo
bile, and n good, stiff bank account.
At present prices, I enn cash In for
$10,000. I am well satisfied, and ex
pect to double this next year.
I have threshed altogether 7,000
bushels of No. 1 Northern wheat from
two hundred acres, which went from
24 to CO bushels per acre.
Seven thousand bushels of wheat, all
No. 1 Northern, two thousand bushels
of oats, 070 bushels of flax, 700 bush
els of barley all at mnrket prices
well, figure this out for yourself nt the
market price. I sold 3,100 bushels of
wheat nt $1.74, am holding the re
mainder for $2.00. Also nil the oats,
barley and flax for higher prices."
Intelligent farming pays always ac
cording to Alex. Wattle, a prosperous
farmer. Some figures to prove his con
tention thnt he hns "made good."
In 1014 Mr. Wattle threshed 40 bush,
els to tho acre from n 30-ncrc crop
This sold for $1.00 per bushel, which,
after deducting seed, lnbor, twine,
threshing nnd freight, left a clear profit
of $30 per ncre, or a total of $1,500.
From last year's crop of 34 acres, Just
sold, ho received after freight had been
deducted, $1,870.94. Advertisement.

EGGS AND MARKET CHICKENS
Plymouth Rocks, Wyandottcs and
Rhode Island Reds Are Most Pop

American markets prefer fowls that
are medium size, thnt have short
plump bodies nnd yellow flesh nnd
legs. The breeds that carry tlieso re

flvos cents under the figures given for
the lurgcr fowls. On tho other hand,
if one expects to obtain the greatest
posslblo Income from eggs, it certain
ly would bo advisable for hlin to
handle tho smaller fowls. As a class,
Leghorns lay better than tho larger
fowls and consumo less feed. A Leg
horn pullet will reach laying maturity
a month enrller than will pullets of
the larger breeds.
Tho larger breeds, such as Lnng
shans nnd Cochins, are not raised ex
tensively for tho reason that they nro
considered poor layers. In somo sec
tions of the country, where lnrgo
roasting chickens nnd capons are In
demand, they are profitably grown.

During Winter Months Hen Must Bo
Given Something to Take Place
of Bugs and Insects.
One renson why eggs nro not laid In
tho winter months, even where thero

of worms, bugs and insects is cut off,
and no meat substitute is given to
take their place.
Tho hen Is an omnivorous feeder,

DRAGGING ROADS IN SPRING
Operations Should Begin Just as Soon
as the Frost Starts to. Como
Out of the Ground.
Nothing adds moro Immediate value
to our farm laud than accessibility to
markets, such connecting link between
tho farm nnd mnrket being n good
road. Tho early dragging of our dirt
roads 1b certainly to bo commended.
.Tust us soon as the frost begins to
como out of the ground, the farmer
should commence dragging.
This is not n laborious job, n good
team can put tho road between him
nnd tho first crossing toward town,
even if hnlf a mile nwny, In good con

Split logs and drags nnd commer

tho basic principle of Mr. D. Ward
King's simple split-log drng, have
done much for tho dirt roads of the
nation, and these mako up the bulk
of tho mileage of tho country roads of
this nation. The originator, of this
typo of drng advocated their use while
the road was still muddy, to "puddle"
tho dirt of tho rond's surface nnd so
make it more, waterproof as well as to
smooth tho surface of tho road. This

they accomplish theso two tasks so

about with the shifting winds. If it
rains, tills looso dirt quickly absorbs
u large amount of water and turns
Into mud much quicker than It would
have been it it hud been packed firm
nnd hard, instead of being loose and

the smoothing action of the drag when
the road Is dry.
Just back of tho "delivery" end of
both blades to tho drag is a hinged
roller for tho purpose of further pul

dirt. Ono lever controls tho cutting or

at whatever unglo Is desired, to regu
