Cora Hind reports to the j Winnipeg Free Press on the crops in the Cardston and Magrath districts as follows: Cardston District. Cardston, Alta., .Aug. went di- rect to Cardston from Lethbridge, and after making a drive of 25 miles found the following: Cardston district had just 5 1-2 inches of moisture from January 1 to August 5. Nevertheless there is a fine crop of winter wheat, a fair crop of spring wheat on sum- mer fallow, and some very passable fields of oats. Good crops are due to splendid soil, good seed, excellent j cultivation, and an almost entire ab- sence of weeds. There are j acres of winter wheat tributary to Cardston, and a conservative estimate of average yield would ibe twenty bush els. There are quite a few fields that will run thirty to thirty-five, for- ty and forty-five, and part of one crop which took first in the standing grain competition will go between fifty and sixty. This field is owned by D. E. Harris, who has 500 acres in winter wheat. One or two fields showed slightly shrunken grain, .but the av- erage sample is hard and a fine color. About acres of spring wheat, all Preston, are tributary to Cardston. Of this area, aJbout one-half was on sum- mer fallow, and this will yield round fifteen bushels, the balance on spring plowing and stubble, will not go over seven or eight. Oats are not extensively raised, but there are a few fields that will run thirty-five to forty-five, and one or two may go fifty. Taking the district, the av- erage will be about twenty. Roots and potatoes will both be a short crop. There is a fair yield of hay on lower land, and a considerable amount of green feed will foe cut from fields of wheat and oats that have not.matur- ed. The long drouth was broken by good "showers after I arrived, and there has been more rain to-day. Not more than 2 per cent. of. land under crop in Cardston district has been plowed down. Large areas have been for the winter wheat, and should the present rain be sufficient to moisten the ground sowing of win- ter wheat will be quite active in an- other week. About one-third of the winter wheat crop is in stook and cut- ting is general. Cardston will be represented at the Dry-farming Con- gress by a splendid exhibition, which is now -being prepared by E. N. Bar- Coulee north to Magrath there are many barren fields of oats and spring wheat near the track, which no doubt have given rise to the reports of total crop failure in these sections, -but back from the railway there are many fine fields of grain, which promise excellent yields. Magrath District. Magrath, Alta., Aug. had a four-hour rain on Friday and another this morning. This rain ex- tendad for a radius of ten miles ar- ound Magrath, arid was sufficient to leave large pools in the roads that took the horses over the fetlocks. In a drive of fifteen miles west, south and east, it was -possible to get a very fair idea of conditions. 'Winter wheat while not so heavy xas that seen in Cardston district, is a very fair crop and will average from IS to 20 bush- els. There is a larger proportion of spring wheat at Magrath, and where it was on fallow land it will run from 12 to 14. On spring plowing, stub- >ble and breaking it is a failure. Oats are a practically total failure in this district. There are a number of fields that were sown to winter wheat which never sprouted, were then sown to spring wheat and that came only a few inches. These crops have been plowed down and the fields are ready for winter wheat. The area ready for winter wheat is double that sown last year, and the rain wijl 'put the ground in condition for the seed: -Magrath shipped last year about 000 bushels of wheat, and on an in- creased acreage will probably ship from to this year. From Raymond to Stirling. From Raymond to Stirling condi- tions are very much the same as de- scribed previously in the Lethbridge district. This section is what is known -as "under the and where irrigation has been employed. There are some excellent crops of winter wheat, and hay, but generally speaking returns from wheat will be very little if any more than bread and seed.

Leaving Cardston at seven o'clock this morning, there were evidences of rain nearly all the -way. From Card- ston north to Spring Coulee the con- 1 ditions are Poetically the same as in I the Cardston -district, though the per- I centage of spring grain is slightly larger there, and the loss will be cor- respondingly greater. The rain, how- ever, is not too late to make some im- provement even here. From- Spring Ont., Review.) Dan McDougall is one of the best known and most esteemed residents of the township of Bentinck. Born in North Gray, 63 years ago, he moved with his eight years of age parents when to his present homestead, and has had a full share of the common experience of the pi- oneers of those days, and also of the pleasures and sorrows of many in all ages. The "writer well remembers him re- lating his first day going to school, hand in hand with his future wife, and of their friendship increasing with their years. He was married on the twenty-fifth day of November, 1875, and was blessed with a family of five sons and three daughters, all of whom are in a fair way to success, having more than the average-of the advan- tages of a good education.

ROYAL EDWARD BROKE RECORD Montreal, Aug. Canadian transAtlantic records were (broken to- day, when the Canadian Northern steamship Royal Edward arrived at Quebec at 11.05 a.m. She left Bris- tol at S p.m., Thursday last, British time, the voyage thus occupying five days and twenty hours approximately. From land to land the trip occupied three days, fourteen and a half hours. But for "fog, the steamer could have made much better time. She is due at Montreal at 10.20 to-night. OUTBREAK OF CHOLERA AN IMPERIAL DANGER. St. Petersburg, Aug. Rein, of the medical faculty of the university, who is an authority on in- fectious diseases, describes the pre- sent outbreak of cholera in Russia as an imperial danger. He estimated that the death list for 1910 already numbers 57.000. as compared with 000 in 1909, and in 1908. The danger is intensified, he says, by the fact that the epidemic has spread from the towns to remote rural dis- tricts, where it is difficult to combat.
