That most of tho flbor flax grown In

that a good start has been niado on

I Miles after his tour of Investigation.
"One thing-I advise tho farmers to do
Is to properly prepare the soil and
'seed bed for the flax. If they do not
they will never make a success of flax
growing. Some fields which I ex-
amined today were not thoroughly ure-
pared and as a result the crop Is poor."
