During- tho first three by the warm wea- ther since Wednesday. Nothing could look more promising for a fine har- vest season than the present warm weather all over the province, and Southern Alberta particularly is now assured of the hot dry weather which Hot Weather in August usually marks'the month of August. 'J'his fa just what is needed for the crops. During-the year so far there has been nearly fifteen inches of jirecipit-atinn. This is in excess ot thc average, but from tbe reports coming in from part of the dis- trict there Js no complaint of too much, moluture. it was not needed for thc majority of crops, it has served the purpopse of putting tbe soil in the best possible shape lor next year's crops.' None of the crops. have suffered, and now that fine weather has come again, the confident that they will reap a crop which will establish a new record, In Southern Alberta. But the if it was not a necessity for this' season's crop, has very noar- rainfall for the two tip to--nbrniai, and lias inspired the fanners with confidence .that next "year will -bo one of the best In the history of Alberta. Cutting Next Week As a result of the rainfall, cutting, which was started about the third "week" of July, bad to >be suspended for a. couple, of weeks. However, it will start again on -Monday morning, and this time should proceed without a stop till the whole crop Is harvest- ed. Winter wheat has been ripen- ing somewhat all through the wet epell. It in now well filled, and can be cut in almost every district in j Southern Alberta next week. It is very plump and will be a fine sam- ple. In some few districts the yield will not.be very'tmifih nhovo fifteen bushels, while in other districts where there was never any lack of moisture there will be some fifty fbushel yields reported. However, it is generally believed that the yield i will be heavier, as a result of the heavy rain, than was at first expected and the average will probably be about twenty-five bushels to the aero. Spring wheat cutting will com- mence very -shortly. In this crop the is very rank, and it will not -ripen so (illicitly as thc winter wheat. -However, a great many fields n'ill wnltlnj for the binder by Ihe' twentieth of Alignst. Oats are filling well, and will follow close after U'e eprlng wheat crop. The rain has done them no.harm, and n. very good finality of -oats will be threshed in ,Southern Alberta. Flux Never Better Flax prospects'are the -best in the .history of the country. It is mated by good agriculturalists that this has been an ideal summer for this mon, and some very fine yields are report- ed, it hardly possible that any of the flax crops iii Southorn Al- beria will yield leas than fifteen bushels this year. With the clearing up of the thc haying-operations will re- sumed. Hay is a fine crop throughout the south, and there will be no scar- city of feed thi-3 winter QB was thc caie last year. The only drawback occasioned by the late rains U that haying and harvest will come logc'.h- er, -and thc demand for han-esteis will be very brisk. Taking everything into consHera- tlon Southorn Alberta is entering on its harvest season in the boat, con- dition of its history.
