Grand total for Southern District Chicago, Aug. Cussidy a twelve year old girl, whose abduc- tion last Thursday caused unusual police activity, returned home this evening from Cincinnati, whether she had been her alleged abduc- tor F.. J. Blair. She told her par- ents that Blair had placed her aboard a train immediately after lur- ing her that they had been in a rooming house in the Ohio city until this morning when the man gave her a ticket to Chicago and told her to go home. Blair, it is alleged, enticed Veronica from her home by a newspaper advertisement "To be a companion to his wife." A search for the room which Bla.r had occupied revealed several letters tend iug to show that he had been a. con- tractor and builder at itoyie, B.C. The papers proved also that Blair had been in that town as late as July 22. The girl .said that after Blair had read the newspaper on the morning after arrival ia Cin- cinnati, he became nervous and ap- peared worried. The police believe publicity given case caused the num to send the girl away. When it comes to figuring an. esti- I'tions influencing the growing crop, a mate of the probable result ot the very accurate estimate of the harvest present harvest -i Southern Alberto, for this year can be made, one has to, take, j irxouol a lot Kstimates vary as to relative qual- of human frailties.

Then those of each lo- oality boost their own at ihe ex- pense of their neighbor.

The other day a ogation from the district waited ui> on the elevator companies them to build elevators. "We will have busht-Is grain, and must bave an' they declared. Upon investigation, it was found tliat' they had farmed well and de- served recognition 'by the elevator year's acreage and Alberta crop. Fifty per cent, of the wheat graded 1, 2; and 3 for milling THE AMOUNT FOR SEED At a glance it would appear that twenty per cent, is a very liberal al- lowance for feed and seed. In Man- itoba am! the older-communities they allow ten per cent., but for the first five" or six years the amount of the total yield used for seed and Ijecd is much greater and twenty per cent, is the amount agreed upon by those fa- miliar with crop figures, including Grain Inspector HiM. THIS YEAR'S OUTLOOK number of Conditions There are n companies. However, their present harvest would amount to not to ex- ceed bushels.. So n great many have talked to your correspon- dent with the view to attracting at- tention -of elevator builders, a quite worthy motive, indeed, for the need of elevators is very urgent. Tlut in despair..over these conflict- ing opinions, and unable to arrive at nny point where an average could be struck, the writer endeavored to learn just what last year had done. Station agents along the route plac- ed their shipping reports at our dis- posal, enabling us t.o learn the entire amounts of grain shipments from the different primary points. In the office of car distributor Mac Millan. in Calgary, the figures were corrected and verified, and The Her 'yield. The harvest last year was de- ll ay ed and prolonged so late that i those who practice cropping the 'ground each year could accomplish but very little fair plowing. Many were satisfied to allow the stuff to volunteer, or to disk in a spying crop' on stubble, but many summer fallowed for this fall's sowing. On this account the acreage is not so great this year as it would have been had ordinary conditions prevail- ed last fall. Figuring an increased acreage of 15 per cent, and an increased yield of 10 per cent, per acre, which hope justi- fies at'least, the present harvest for Southern Alberta will realize a. total of bushels.
