Mr. W. H. SHAEPE:
What do you think about it?
.Mr. HUGHES: I am addressing my remarks to the chairman and the minister, who know what I am talking about. Another lecturer came to our province, I think last year, and a number of farmers went to listen to him. One man asked him what he would do to bring in a worn-out field, or worn-out land, and the prompt answer was: Sow clover on it. The minister knows well enough that that was no answer to give to a practical farmer, that the land would have to be well cultivated and in good condition before you could get a catch of clover. Yrou might as well sow the clover on the sea shore as on a worn-out field. Consequently practical farmers go away from meetings of that kind and doubt (everything they have hearu. I would therefore ask the minister to send a better class of men to our province, if he has any at all, and if he has not any of a better class, not to send any, and save that much expense. These are practical questions, and upon them I am sure the minister will agree with me.
