THIRTY NINE BUSHELS TOACRE Yield on One Farm in the Fertile Cardston District Cardston, Aug. Walter Low who has a" fins farm on the Cochrane ranch just south-west of the new town of G-lenwoqd, finished threshing his one hundred-acres of, fall wheat this week. He had built three port- able granaries, but found these would not hold all his grain, as the yield was near 39 bushels per acre. He had calculated on 30 bushels, so he had to provide considerable more storage than he had anticipated. Such. sur- prises are very gratifying. in a year like this, and' they speak volumes for good methods as well as the district in which they occur.; Mr. Low Is to be congratulated. 0. E.
