ED FROM THE WEST BY A WINNIPEG PAPER Winnipeg, Aug. is the ea that inns through per cent, of the reports received by' the Tele- gram from its western correspondents m answer to a query sent out last night as to crop conditions. .A-most feature of the re- ports is the remarkable progress made during tlie last two weeks. The grain filling well and is now turn- ing color. Barley hirvest starting at most points, i Fall wheat ill Alberta is large- ly in .'the slfock an'd odd fields of spring wheat are already down. Harvest will be general from Aug- ust tenth to August twenty-fourth. In the .majority of places August 15 is given 'as the start. This is early. This means with, average harvest weather: that the' great bulk of the crop will be of the contract grade. Should 'the west produce bushels of-hard there seems every possibility it will, it means that its season's crop will be' the dominat- ing fa'ctor in the world's Exact estimate of acreage and yield are, not possible, but taking the figures of the Federal Department .of Agricul- ture "as a basis aand working out percentages of increase and decrease FARMERS SIT WITH FOLDE ARMS WAITING FOR RAIN TO London, Aug. an extensiv area of the British .isles, the harvcs prospect is, assuming a .very seriou aspect, in consequence of the of the weather which has now been o a more .or less unfavorable -type sinci the advent of June. A year ago the country had a summer of intense heal and dryness which enabled farmers to complete their harvesting operations Koine weeks earlier .than usual. This season thsy have to sit with folded arms waiting [or a cessation of all but daily rainstorm's. Official, statistics show that in the nine weeks from .the beginning oi .June tlic frequency of rain has be'en unusu- ally great over nearly the whole ol the United. Kingdom, while the .total quantity''of the water which has fall- en is largely in excess of normal. Within the last, few days the rain storms have Increased in intensity and falls of one inch a day are rather common. .Sonietimes the amounts have exceeded'two'inches. Unfortun- ately there is np prospect of an im- provement in conditions. In acreage from former crop reports they are as follows: 3 per cent, de- crease: Saskatchewan, increase 10 per cent; Alberta increaso 15 per cent. Basing crop yields at 21 bushels for for oats, 25 for barley and 1214' for flax, the total yields would be: Wheat Oats NO ALTERATION IN m. GRADE STATEMENTS.
