Montana, who was in the city yesterday on his way home from the West-orn Canada Irrigation association convention at Maple Creek. Dr. LlnfU'lil has travelled over the whole state of Montana and the southern part of Saskatchewan during the last three j weeks, and he has seen no crop anywhere that will begin to compare with these of southern Alberta. He considers that we have a good average crop in this district and declares there will be ft tremendous influx of new wealth when the crop is sold. Dr. Llnfleld is a graduate of the Ontario Agricultural College at Cuelph, and while lie has been engaged in experimental work in the Uuited States for many years, ho has very kindly feelings toward the Canadian agriculturist.

Dr. Linflold took up the experimental agricultural work for the state of Montana more than fifteen years ago, and his experience there has been much the same as it was In the southern part of this province. There were millions of acres of Idle land which the sheep and cattle ranchers safd would never be any good for unythlng but grazing, but that day is past and agriculture Is rap- , idly gaining throughout the state. This j Alberta or Montana, year, in spite of tlie poor crops, he ' says there will be more wheat raised in Montana than last year owing to the great increase in the acreage. Montana, however, is still behind Alberta In the matter of wheat production. Interesting Experiment Dr. Llnfleld is very much Interested in an experiment which he Is carrying out at Bozeman, and which ho wimts Supt. Fairfield to try here. A couple of years ago a man from Michigan suggested that Russian sunflowers would make good ensilage for cattle. The idea seemed far-fetched, but Dr. Llnfleld said anything was worth trying once. A small patch was sown, and the sunflowers grew to a height of ton or twelve feet. Thoy were cut when the heads were about half matured, put through a cutting box nnd fed to the cows. The cows seemed to like the dish, and the quantity of milk kept up. The little patch had yielded at the rate of 3fi tons to the acre. It looked like a good proposition so the next year three acres were planted, and it yielded from 25 to .10 tons per acre. It was put through the cutting box and fed to the cows. They would eat from 75 to SO poilnds a day and Dr. Llnfleld figured that the fodder from an acre of the sunflower was worth as much in feed value as seven tons of clover. This year the farm planted seven acres and is putting up an 140 ton silo to store it. The sunflower is cut early in September when still green. It is sown in rows about three feet apart and the plants about a foot apart in the rows. Dr. Llnfleld says the crop will take the place of sum-merfallow, and can be planted In place of corn, which is not a sure crop in (Continued from Front PageY!

He predicted "that this tremendous gathering will result in a sweeping victory for the Liberal party at the forthcoming elections." Premier Slfton, of Alberta, and Premier Brewster, of British Columbia, followed with remarks that were very brief and of a general nature. After the meeting broke up tho delegates from Manitoba nnd Saskatchewan met privately In separate rooms to choose their representatives on the resolutions committee. The Alberta delegates held a meeting this afternoon for tho selection of their 20 members of the commlttoo on resolutions with Mayor Henry of Edmonton, acting as chalrmnn.

Mr. Oliver had been accorded a striking demonstration. Hon. Mr. MacKay, ft was stated, Introduced the name of Sir Wilfrid Laurter. "We are going into battle." Mr. MacKay was quoted as saying, "we are going with one leader, not two. The party has trusted for the past years to the leadership of Sir Wilfrid Laurier."

G.-Harvest will be In full swing In this district In another week's time, as tho grain Is ripening very -fast, owing to tho continued* dry weather and hot sun, although tho recent little showers did refresh tho atmosphere to some extent. Fnrmers In this district are still looking anxiously for a good soaking rain to benefit tho later sown grain. STIRLING. Stirling, Aug. C.-Showers have fallen irregularly over tho district. Grain has stood the dry spell surprisingly well. A few fields of late bowh wheat mixed with wild oats have been cut for hay. Considering that thero will he no loss this year from fallen grain or from frost and that there is an increase in acreage it is probable that flvc-jthe total yield of wheat will be practically that of last year. The ponds become critical. FOREMOST. Foremost, Aug. 6.-Some few have been cutting wheat last week. This week cutting will be general. Some barley has been cu(. Wheat on summer-fallow promises a 20 bushel yield. Flax Is light In most cases. Potatoes promise to be light also. Some rain fell here on the night of Aug. 3rd. Tho weather has got cooler PINCHIR CREEK. Plncher Creek, Aug. B.-The crop conditions have slightly improved in this district during the past week.

The concensus of opinion is that the grain is filling nicely. �'� Samples ot spring wheat have been brought to town ^ which would vindicate that the crops here will bo rather better than what for tho past few weeks have boon expected. Tho haymakers are in tho fields early and late, and whilo the Htticks of Timothy are one to two of Inst year tho greater effort will bo put forth on tho wild grass haying. Tho weather for the garnering of this very ncos-sary commodity Imb been very favorable It is concluded that owing to tlie clay soil (which Is inoro expensive to till, but retains its moisture longer I, this district has the offocts of tho drought bettor than areas of lighter soil. GRASSY LAKE. Grassy Lake, Aug. C.-There has not been as much cutting dono this week as was expected but the grain is ripening fact and by Monday, Aug. Gth, nearly everyone will bo cutting. The dry spell continues, rain Is badly needed for the Inter crops and for potatoes. As yet our potatoes are blossomed well, but. no tubers. MACLEOO. Macleod, Aug. 6.-Crop conditions arc much improved all over the district. Tho cutting of oats has already begun, and the early wheat will be ready for cutting in a week. Much ot this Is well filled, and a visit to various parts of tho district convinces a visitor with the help of farmers that the average Iibb now been Increased In some parts up to 30 bushels, while tho majority will now give a yield ot not less than 20 bushels. This change) is duo to tho few hours rain that fell on Friday evening, which In some ensos lias changed the face of many to such a smile that thero Is scarcely room for the smllo even In tho fields of wheat. On tho north is the bla, farm of .1. H. McLean, with his few hundred acres of wheat, and many ol other grains. This farm also pro-| duces a large number of duck, geese.

"Sir Richard has had a remarkable career, being a remarkably young man whrtn accorded the honor of premiership, which position he held for almost IS years. He was suffering from neuphrls In an advanced stage when he resigned from the agent-generalship about the middle of last May, but Intended to return to British Columbia in July. Ml* 'Uness, however, proved too severe to permit his travelling." In concluding. Premier Brewster expressed his deep sympathy with Lady McBride and her daughters in their bereavement. .1-1 SIR R. Mil t^oHnKcraD from Fkont Paq>) Sir Richard McBride. K. C. M. G., was a native of British Columbia, having been born in New Westminster, December loth, 1870, being thus only 47 years of age. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur McBride. He was educated at the public and high schools of his native town, and later attended Dalhousie university. Nova Scotia, graduating in law. He read law with T. C. Atkinson and Hon. Angus J. McCall, being admitted to the bar in 1S92, after which he practised for some years in British Columbia, before entering politics. His first appearance In politics was when he contested Westminster district for the commons in 1896, when Sir Wilfrid Laurier was elected to office. In 1898 he was returned as member for Dewd-ney In the local elections, and again In 1900 and 1903. He represented also Victoria City in 1907 and Victoria and Yale in 1909. He entered the B. C. cabinet as minister of mines In 1900 and in 1903 became premier, which position he held until his retirement In 1916, to take the position of agent-general of Eritish Columbia in London, being succeeded as premier by Mr. -Bowser. The degree of LL.D. was conferred on him by California university in 1813. In 1896 he married Miss Margaret McGillivray, and there are five children in the family. Sir Richard went to London last year as agent-general resigning his position as premier during the bitter contest which ultimately resulted In the defeat of the Bowser government. He was created a K.C.M.G. in 1912. Since his residence in London, his health has been very poor and his death was not unexpected as word of his serious illness came only a tew days ago. 'tre were political opponents, we were Warm personal-friends. Sir Richard differed from most political leaders, in that he had frequently warm friendships with his most ardent opponents. His was one of the most likeable dispositions In British Cob umbia, and it was this charm of his that won so many friends for him, and* which accounted very largely for his Success. His death will be felt very keenly'in British Columbia by Liberals and Conservatives alike, for his political antagonists worked  FREE PRE8S REPORT *  *    or  to  Winnipeg, Aug. 7.-Harvesting will be general In Manitoba Aug. 15, and In Saskatchewan and Alberta about Aug. 20.

It is positive in the pleasure and security it adds to motoring. It multiplies the miles that your tires will deliver. It subtracts from the worry, reduces the work, cancels the inconvenience, attaching to the care of tires. At the same time it carries no excessive cost. It is a service that leaves an unusual dividend of satisfaction. More than 1000 business men, realizing this satisfaction and the goodwill thus betokened, have resolved to extend such tire service beneath the Goodyear emblem. Good year Service Station So this emblem marks hostelries of tire service along every road of the country. It reveals itself at many advantageous points-an ever-recurring beacon - light to a vast number of Canadian motorists. And it is not by any chance or accident that this increasing number of motorists find tire satisfaction under the name Goodyear. They belong to that class of men who bring a business instinct into tire-purchasing. They seek in the tires they buy a capacity for delivering long, loyal, economical service. They* base their preference on known virtues and achievement. To these men Goodyear achievements and discoveries - the development of the tire-making machine, the No-Hook bead, the All - Weather tread, the Braided Piano Wire base, and other quality-giving Goodyear features-are significant of a steady, laborious effort towards building better tires. This significance grows as they experience the advantages of Goodyear Tires and the benefits of Goodyear service. Yet there are still many men to whom the Goodyear emblem of service is familiar by appearance only. They have still to experience the actual service this emblem indicates. They have yet to learn the value and virtue this service can add to their tires. To these motorists the Goodyear em-Tilem should serve as an invitation at the first sign of tire distress. An intimate acquaintance with the work of the Goodyear Service Station will bring ft new aspect of motoring pleasure. Herein'we make not a claim but assurance. Go to the Goodyear Servic* Station dealer. Test his work yourself. Ask him about the many tasks his work embraces-the many small things he will do-at little or no cost to you- which would take the pleasure out of your motoring if you had them to do yourself. , Let the men beneath this Goodyear Service Station emblem help lower your tire costs by increasing your tire mileage, enhance your motoring pleasure by ren-8 dering trouble-saving service, heighten your motoring satisfaction by adding value and virtue to your tires and tire-service.
