Editor Star: Some one has asked,

I There are men who have taught

And that is just as true of farming
as of anything else. Some of them
have worked at it for fifty years and
yet an expert would take their tools,
their land and their stock and pro produce
duce produce twice as much with less labor.
A life time on a farm does not pro produce
duce produce an expert. There are things
that cannot bo learned on a farm
that are of vast importance. To be
an expert farmer a man must be able
to know soils, have a knowledge of
j bacteria, a knowledge of chemistry
and some other sciences that can be
obtained only in large institutions
with extensive laboratories. The ex expert
pert expert farmer would have been able to
raise alfalfa where others failed by
inoculating the soil with the right
kind of bacteria. I know of a banker

teria. bacteria. He made several thousand
dollars by selling to farmers sacks of
dirt taken from an old alfalfa field
and those inexperienced farmers got
a good stand, where they had failed
before, although they knew nothing
of the cause that produced the good
stand. A farm demonstrator in that
part of the Province of Quebec would
have made an alfalfa field of those
lands years before the general culti-
Ivation of alfalfa was a success.
There are things of like nature
occurring all the time which no
farmer can learn on a farm. How
would he ever have learned that

the farmers in the semi-arid regions.
