CROP SITUATION AROUND WARNER wheat this spring early it is making! a good showing and the spring wheat! referred to above has been produced' on ground thus prepared. It is per- fectly fair to say that the crop on the sod breaking, that is what was broken this spring is a failure as far as crops are concerned, or the crop Rev. M. J. Conner Says that was drilled into stubble or was There are Many Good Crops in the District Warner, Aug. last week's Record the following letter from Rev. M. J. Connor on the crop situation appeared: I would like to pen a few words as to the conditions of the crop in this district. This has been considered a' dry year and such it has been in- deed. But as much has been said and some reports and, statements, in my judgment have been incorrect largely from lack of knowledge o! the real situation, causes me to make this re- port. In connection with my church work and other matters I find it necessary to do considerable travelling in and through this district. This report put on ground that was plowed this j spring is of little consequence. In-as- much as there is considerable of crop as referred to in the first of this ar- ticle, it is plain to the reader that the country is not in as bad shape as it is made to appear. Another fact must be taken into consideration, and especially regard- ing the spring crop. It is known to all that this is comparatively a. new country, and it is also a fact that many of the farmers are depending OB a crop off the sod or their spring breaking. This in an ordinary year has been bringing good returns to the farmer. They have come in the spring, went to breaking and in 6 months they have been able to realize from 15 to 18 bushels wheat and other grains in proportion frorc. their ground. In view of this fact it can be clearly seen why thev crop condi- tions make the showing as it has wiU cover a territory of a good many this jear. Again it will be well to miles in all directions from Warner. I have made the following notations: The crop is much' ahead of the ordin- CROPS IT MACIEOB DISTRICT ary expectancy, while in some cases the fields are not going to make -what they thought they would "some time ago, for viewing the field generally, it appeared to a much heavier stand than it really proved to be when you once get into the grain. Other fields that a few weeks ago looked hopeless have on quite a different appearance since it has been heading and in many cases will be very surprising in its yield.

Cora Hind says Macleod is one of the difficult ter- ritories to estimate, owing to the fact that part of the country, es- pecially that tributary to the south, is winter wheat, while for a fifteen or 'twenty mile radius of Macleod it is practically all spring crop. In the winter wheat sections conditions are nearly as good as in Cardston dis- trict, and while individual crops will run as high as thirty 'to thirty-five bushels on 800 and acres, the average will be around twenty. In the winter wheat, country there are a few, but not many, fair crops of oats. Of the land sown to spring wheat and oats fully one-third has been plowed down or will have to be. Of the spring wheat that will be cut I think the average will be around twelve bushels. Syms fields will go fifteen to seventeen, and many will not go ten. The oats in the spring wheat territory are practically a to- tal failure. Last year Macleod ship- ped about bushels of wheat. After what I have seen in a drive of nearly thirty miles, I estimate that, putting good territory against bad, Macleod district will have bread and seed and possibly a little more. The sample of both spring and winter wheat will be excellent. Considerable native hay is being cut, but cultivat- ed hay is a very poor crop. Oats will have to be brought in from oth- er points. Old oats are worth a hundred. The Macleod district had magnificent crops last year, and with the exception of newcomers, the par- tial failure will not be severely felt.

These are not no further expense or labor. This will only a "Small patch here and there, but we have seen and gone over the ground and inspected several fields that were large in their acreage that will hold good according to the above. The Why of It The question will naturally arise in the mind of the reader as to why this variation of crops. It i occurs thus, the conditions the ground was in this spring. Fall wheat that was put in early last summer say in July and the first of August on ground that was broken early and well work ed up just after the plowing in order to retain the moisture, are making a yield of from 15 to 20 bushels. The later seeding of fall wheat, however, is a comparative failure unless in a few cases. On. this ground referred to, if it was d rilled into spring no returns this season.

The townsite of Vulcan is being sur- veyed this week. H. F. ITcDonald, of Winnipeg having charge of the work. The survey is on the eist side of the track, instead of the west, as the people out there had supposed it j would be. "I have more confidence in this country now than I ever had be-i fore." is a common remark these days around here. According to all old timers this is the dryest year ever known here, as far back as tradition runs, and yet there are a cumber of pretty fair crops on summer fallow, and some on sod. Considerable interest hes been a- roused by the discovery of gas in a well which Dr. Wynd is having drill- ed on his property in the south-west corner of town. The discovery made Monday at a depth of 200 feet The pressure is light, as would oe ex- pected at that depth, but the is important as evidence that tJiere is natural gas here if anyone has the necessary equipment and the will to j go after it.
