These petitions will be, ready by the time 'the legislature meets. "NTo official step, has been taken 117 the Social Service council in the mat- ter, but the council is practically un- animous in its approval of the Hugh John Macdonald act, which has been declared good lajv by the privy coun- cil."

Le Baron is raising Kiuiasli and cucum- hiors. and has corn now almost ready to HSR, and practically all otln.T Kar- irui-k raised in the United Stales. and Kfowii without irrigation. At Tahcr, David Strum is cutting 100 acres, and several y.sriins in the immediate vicinity have fields j ready; while in the district norM' of S tiie river cutting of wheat is unite i general. The heads are very ions ami j well filled, and should yield on an 'average of -7 bushels acre, At Purple Springs, there is about I no ;t ores of corn in the bloom, and I corn will soon reach the roasting car j stage. In this district the grain is I not ripening as evenly as in the dis- jlriciB north of Lfthbridgo, so the fiirmers will nol he ruslied so mucli, j with his grain all ripening at the time.

The aver- age yield should be about 25 bushels to the acre. At Seven Persons, John Reynolds has MO acres ready to cut. and sever- i al others have already commenced. The yield should average about '22 bushels per acre. I At Redcliffe cutting is (itiitc gener- al in the vicinity, uut most farmers are of the oninion that it is hardly ready, hut by Monday ev- ery farmer will be culling, and thresh- ing will commence in about, a week on the land owned by Canadian Wheat Lands, Limited, where there is about 7000 acres of wheat, which should average about -0 bushels per acre. Harvest help is uuiie 'plentiful in all districts visited, .arid while, as' a rule, I think most farmers are inclin- ed to over-estimate the yield per aero! the quality- of the grain seems to he'of the best, and the, hot, dry weather of the past two weeks has jbeen ideal for wheat that was ftiled before that .time.
