Dutch reports of a fleet of five may or may not, be well founded, hut annihilation of one of the raiders loses nothing in signi- ficance by its relation to the total numbers 'engaged. Whether there were two or half a it remains a grave material loss to Germany.

The farmers, he says, wear a smile which is decidedly different from their took of last year. Mr. MciJougall and Mr. Larson re- port that some harvest help has been obtained but not enough. One diffi- culty is that the harvesters from Eastern Canada do not get this far west. Enough, teams are in-sight but more men are needed. Three dollars a day is being paid to men, and five dollars a 'day '.for 'mcii with teams.

USSIANS SINK FOUR f SHIPS IN BOSPHORUS !Sofia, Aug. 13.-- (Private advices pro Constantinople state that the frman steamship Saros and three Wklsh colliers have been sunk honis by the Russians. and which made the work so difficult, has been successfully cased oft and the well is now in Cine shape. "It was never in better de- clared Mr.- Devciiish. The Beaver well has reached a depth of feet and the drillers arc hard at it. This hole, loo, is in perfect condition. The experts think that the Beaver is just about due to strike the big gas reservoir which ap- parently underlies all this region. MOSQUITOES BOTHER THE WELL DRILLERS Calgary, Alta., Aug. Drillers in this district have been suffering I greatly from the beat and swarms of mosquitoes. President and Managing Director O. G-.Devenish of the Un- ited Oils, said that last week or. sev- eral successive days the thermome- ter in Etzikom Coulee registered 05 degrees in the shade. The mosqui- toes have invaded the district in arm- ies and are as savage as the Euro- pean Huns, annoyins the drillers and he was not only sane, but very wise, for lie now has a better crop than they. On May 1, he look the stock off, and let the grain STOW. When it was about TiO inches high he cut it for hay, getting over two tons to the acre. He let the hay dry slightly, just enough to cure it, and then stacked it. He claims that its feed- ing; qualities are as good as alfalfa. In its green state, it would make ex- cellent, silage, states Mr. Stover. Now after using this field for pas- ture, and later for hay, the. owner is letting the rye grow again, which it is doing thicker than ever. He will harvest the grain and use the straw. He expects to get another ton to the acre of straw, and expects a yield of from 25 to 35 bushels to the acre of rye. With another patch of rye, Mr. Stover tried out a different scheme. He let his pigs run on It in June, and when it outgrew the nigs, and com- menced to head out, he turned out the pigs, and cut it for hay, getting a. good weight. He will let this grow again, and will cut for grain when this second crop is riiie. Mr. Stover hopes to put in enough winter rye this year to keep his stock without the necessity of buying hay. This year he had to buy two and a half cars of timothy, nt from to per ton, and if lie can grow his own hay, it will' be a consider- able economy. Although he claims that farming is only a side line, Mr. Stover farms four sections of land near Milk Riv- er, and has one thousand acres of crop in this year, of which 700 is in spring wheat, which he will com- mence cutting about the 20th of this month, Mr. Stover has also -10 acres of fall wheat, which be will cut the first of next week; 100 acres of flax, and 200 acres of oats. fCvorytbing is looking, the best it possibly could, he states. Mr. Stover intends to put in 15CO acres of crop next year, and to prepare -for it he has now two steam plowing outfits at preparing 1200 acres of land.
