shows a keen conception of con

brief editorial on better cultiva

The largest factor ia what a
contemporary calls "the internal

is not to be found in the redemp
tion of arid and semi-arid tracts
by irrigation or "dry farming"
or in the drainage of the swamps,
oven though these enterprises
shall add 100.000.000 acres to the
area occupied by agriculturists.
It will be found in the better
