Has Developed a New Agricul
tural and Live Stock
St. Joseph, Mo.
Within the past few years a new ed
ucational factor in American agricul
tural and live stock husbandry has
taken prominence in this country. The
agricultural fair and the live stock
show are not new. But the part they
have been playing in the education of
farmers and live stock breeders has
within the past decade taken on a
wonderful new life. There was and
still is a growing demand for better
things from field and feed lot. The
consumer has demanded it and the
farmer's bank account demands it.
Land has become too valuable and the
prices of feeds have become establish
ed upon a permanent level that is too
high to permit of scrub stock making
the profits they once did. The agri
cultural college where young men
could be trained in the study of soils,
in the study of crops and how to get
the biggest yields, and the improve
ment of live stock became a necessity
with the coming of the age when there
is no more cheap land.
Supplemental to the agricultural
school where farming was transformed
into a profession rather than an occu
pation, comes the agricultural and live
stock show and these occupy a field
distinct, unique, useful and American
They are a school, a short course in
agriculture and animal husbandry where
there is recreation and instruction for
the farmer, his wife, his sons and
daughters, as well as for the business
man and the society lady of the city.
Among the annual live stock straws
that have within a short time come into
prominent recognition for the broad
scone of its provision for the entertain
ment and instruction ' of the public is
the Interstate Live Stock and Horse
Show at St. Joseph, Mo.
Four years ago this show was start-
ei There were skeptics who said St
Joseph could not start and put a big
live stock show on a self-sustaining
basis. But before the end of the first
show, skepticism had flown and the
Interstate was recognized as one of
the big shows of the country. It has
been eettine better ever since and the
preliminary premium list for the ex
hibition of this year advisedly makes
provision for still further growth. New
departments and classifications have
been added and correspondence being
received daily in the office of manager
M. B. Irwin furnishes proof positive
that the week of Sept. 20-25, this year,
will bring out a bigger lot of show
ring live stock than has been seen at
any of the previous shows.

Are You Going
Harvesting and Threshing in
Progress -Can See What
Land is Producing.
Tuesday, August 3, is the date of the
next excursion to "Sunny Southern
Alberta," Canada. This will be the
best time of all the year for prospec
tive purchasers to look at Alberta land
as small grain will just be ready for
cutting and thrashing. One can see at
a glance exactly what the climate and
soil will produce. Crop prospects in this
famous wheat belt have not been bet
ter in 20 years, which means that the
price of land there will continue to ad
vance in price.
About 30 or 40 farmers, business and
profensional men of Cass county have
already made purchases in Alberta.
Land-seekers from some 15 er 20 states
are flocking there by the thousands,
most of them buying a quarter section
or more before they return. Six years
ago this land sold at from $2 to $5 an
acre; today, it is selling at from $12 or
$15 up to $50 an acre.
The Canadian Pacific R. R. Co. ad
vanced the price of its lands 20 per cent
on July 15 and further advances are
sure to come as the home seekers con
tinue to rush into that country.
If you cannot possibly get away to
go on Aug. 3, you can go on the next
excursion day, which will be August 17.
Alberta grows the best wheat to be
found, the yield being from 30 to 55
bushels per acre. Oats yield from 60
to 100 bushels and barley, 40 to 80 bu
shels. You can purchase first class
dry land within 2, 3 or 4 miles of a mar
ket at $18 an acre and irrigated laad at
$30 an aere. Where can you buy land
at that price that will grow such large
