Mr. MOTHERWELL:

Exactly the same information is given by this farm as is given by any other experimental station. Instead of every settler carrying out a line of experiments at his own expense, this sub-station demonstrates just what the locality is adapted for. There is no doubt that we have had pioneer districts established1 in Canada, particularly in the older parts of Ontario and some other places, without the aid of such institutions; but it is equally true that new settlers coming in are materially assisted by these experimental stations.
