and good roads are the chief problems
in the development of the countrv.

congress is working."
The federal department of agriculture
has taken charge of a 20-acre tract of
land in the Spokan valley, where there
will be demonstrations of the latest ap
proved methods of supplying the Foil
with moisture by artificial means
demonstrated by irrigation experts.
In this connection the call states the
"The selection of Spokane was pe
culiarly fortunate for this congress, as
it provides every opportunity for the
study of all methods of irrigating and
various systems of irrigation projects.
Within a few minutes car ride of the
city are gravity canal systems, pipe
distribution of water and modern elec
trical pumping plants.
"The irrigated areas in Idaho, Mon

every kind of fruit and vegetable that
can be grown in the semitropic zone,
also the perfection of the red apple, as
was demonstrated at the first National
apple show in Spokane in December,
