RECIPROCITY IS BIGGEST AND BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO US "1 certainly am in favor of rcci- procity and will do what 1 can to secure it. 1 believe it will greatly forming is at the bottom of Canada's prosperity and growth 1 hope lo see it adopted." The speaker was R. Wood. Manager of the Wood Mailing j of the nonunion Flour Mills Coin- pany. Mr. Wood asked the j question which brought forth the statements quoted. When asked if he benefit- would -accrue. He said there were several, but that ap- ple crop-would'benefit most. Last he barrels of apples and was observant enough of condi- to know that the buyers sent them to, the United States markets, and Ihai they paid a duty on thein of 75c.' a barrel. He figured that it would mean at least SOc. a barrel, or 11500 move to him for bis crop, if he them there under reciprocal pive his reasons for favoring conditions. He seems to have at least reciprocity he readily assented. Mr. 500 pood reasons for voting for rcci- jWnod is particularly well qualified to procily. and the rest of his crop is speak of tho probable effect of reoi- -procity on the fanning industry.

"The farmvrs of .'Irani and Went- worth counties are engaged in pro- ducing all grain, fruit, tables and live said Mr. Wood, in beginning to give his rea- sons for favoring reciprocity, "and I j think I am competent to speak of conditions regarding some of these tilings at least. In the matter of grain one is safe in saying that wheat of the quality that is grown by our farmers is usually several cents a bushel higher, and, in fact, is now higher, in the neighboring markets of HufT.ilo and Detroit than it is in Hamilton and Toronto. Tbe same, thing applies, by comparison of pric- es, .to hard wheat between the Win- j nipeg prices and those in Minneapolis :N [and Dululh. "The present, price oi oats striking example of how reciprocity i would benefit the grower of oats. The Chicago prices at present arc about I Uc. for December oats, which price is for :12 pounds, while the price in Winnipeg for oats' is 38Ac. for 31 pounds. This, it will be observed, is a difference of about Sc. or 9c. a bushel. of barley, I remember conditions for years before the -jMcKmlcy bill was introduced. This bill raised the ih-ty on barley from Kic. to 3ftc a bushel. The farmers of WentworUi and Brant counties pre- vious to the passing of this bill rais- ed very large quantities of a superior finality of barley. It was very much desired and appreciated by brewers not only in Canada but in the United States, and hundreds of thousands of still fn roserve.1 "Our firm'..'is'quite an extensive shipper of turnips. This agreement admit turnips free.

"I have a good fcnnwlodge of farm- ers and farming conditions in these counties, and the fact that reciproc- ity will riot" seriously aftect the pro- tective principle, as applied to manu- factured products, but will takedown a barrier to all products of the farm, it the highest and best legis- lation ever introduced in this coun- try. The fact that there are 000 or consumers. a larpr part of thum big consumers, of what grow, and that we are so near them that we can place our goods in their markets within twelve or fif- teen hours hy express and in twenty- four hours by freight, is the biggest and best thing ever offered to a pro- ducing country like this. The farmer will be greatly benelitted without a shadow of a doubt. All the produce of the farm will increase in value, and every business in every town and city in this country will reap a cor- responding benefit because of the1 in- creased prosperity that will result from reciprocity in natural products. These nre some of the reasons why I am in favor of conclud- ed Mr. Wood. FROST DID NO DAMAGE TO GRAIN Winnipeg, Aug. the gov- ernment wexlhor report for the past twenty-four hours shows tho entire absence of frost throughout the west- ern provinces private deapfttchos from correspondents assert tlmt f roat was felt at one or two points. From burn was received the following des- patch: "There was frost. In this district last night, which left a thin com of Ice on water during .the early morn- Ing. living along eleven rur- al telephone lines assert that no dam- age waH done to crops. Potatoes ami cucumber vines were not Injured, re It is believed that wheat is of sturdier escap- ed injury." From Brandon, which IB centre of Manitoba's agricultural area, the following was received this morning: "Fine weather. Was warmer last night than during Monday. The low- est point recorded at the experiment- al farm was forty, which IB far enough above zero to allay any of dam- age to crops. Not even the tenderest of plants In the farm gardena show any sign of morning broke bright; clear and warm and It looks like another spell of Ideal har- vest weather." Generally all reports received are of very optimistic character.
