Some fruit men hare got only one picking off their fberry patches and the fruit 'rotted. In some of the south wheat cutting is farther advanced than most of us have any idea. Our River for instance, estimates that two-thirds of the wheat in that section IB cut. The end of the mouth ought to see most of the wheat cut in the country east, north-east and South-east of Leth-bridge. Saskatchewan's Minister of Agri- culture estimates the loss from weeds in that province this year to be Alberta's loss is proportion- ately as great, and Manitoba as well. There should be a concentrated effort on the part of the western provinces to get this weed menace under con- trol. The provinces should set a good example to the farmers by keeping all roadways free from weeds. As it is how, the roadways are frequently bordorefl for miles with noiloua Naturally the farmer isn't iJfoho to blean 'up his farm 'when alongside .the road is a breeding place for further contamination.
