financial institutions that are opposed to many of the solutions ot the farmers problems as the farmer sees While there have been failures In co operative or fraternal great progress has been this and in future the cooperative principle as applied to insurance is destined to occupy a much larger field than in the The experience of such an organiza tion as the Modern Woodmen of Am of which we happen

the seed In the and that time Is when conditions are favorable for growth In tho early The question may well be when Is the right time Certainly not at the end of or too early in We all know that in

laid before the provincial Depart ment of Agriculture and the reply of the Deputy Minister Agriculture is as follows The department feels it would be a very difficult matter to purchase and ship feed

In many instances the summerfallow and fall plowing crops have made a poor showing in comparison with the springplowing and stubble sown crops This season may ue called an abnormal We often apeak of normal seasons but they are the ex coption rather than the Abnor mal seasons arc the rule rather than frost when the crop quickly recovers by rain falling soon In sorac seasons drought is a Ir other seasons the soil but UK crops quickly even when tlu soil exposes the and the crop Is But I cannot recall an season that can be likened to 191S I ind that some lay ihe blame to drag barrows in using it

several spring rosts and was not so far advanced at the time drought As the grain wns not frozen the winds did not have any Regarding there are prospects of a bumper There are consid erable areas broken fields that did not produce any and there is a possibility of more abundant which follows any season where the fields did not produce a This season It would be good practice to keep the cultivator going shallow to keep down any in stead of and without any de sire to pose as a prophet I am confi dent that be a record season for the biggest crop we have yet duced in any SUCCESSFUL

outstanding features were spring frost high drifting of the soil and drought a bad comblnatibn of forces seldom met Sometimes we have one or the but seldom all to The spring opened up early with little or no precipitation ot mois ture Throughout May and June and in many districts frosts cut down the early grain and were follow ed by drought and continued The frost damage was insignificant in the stage of the crops if rain had or if the damage had not been aggravated by high The high winds would not have affected the situation so badly if the frost had not out down the at the The grain that was cut down did not recover in and the ground being bare allowed tho wind to play havoc with the Had rains fallen Im mediately after the crop was cut down by frost the effect of the winds would not have been BO but this combination of forces kept the crop in check and hindered recovery until too late in the Many fields never and aro bare or plowed up or sown to other Where the grain did recover the continued drought hindered and the crop was kept in check and forced to head while in some i cases too short to properly Where rains some fields were beiwfitted as this lengthened stem but in some cases this not occur as tin crop was too far Dominion labor What Caused the Most Oamaae n some seasons we have spring cate of its free use throughout th Aftre the first harrowing after the fallow is a light cu tivaition by the spring tooth cultivator leaving the field Is more advis Some men have told me tha they have stacked away their drag harrow and do not intend to use them this The drag harrow is not to Many are apt to jump to false conclu sions too quickly by only looking on tho surface of and not getting nearer to the root of the Fall plowing also is not responsible for a poor showing than the spring Fall plowing never ought to bo seeded and may well be left until the fallow and spring plowing is Neither the drag fall spring drifting or aro so responsible as too early spring Drought is more responsible for re duced crop yields than either spring frosts or high but drought could have been largely overcome by delaying the seeding ot tho crop uuti the middle or third week in April Tho spring frosts and drifting winci and drought would not havo had so much Some Previous Lean I am firmly convinced that the main cause of so much crop failure this season is duo to too early seeding This conviction is backed by my ex and close observations in tin past in the Unless It woro so I would pen this and am now doing so with the sole object o pointing out the unwise practice o seeding too early when the spring opens up so that one may take a lesson that may be profitable in the PRICE OF A i TIMEW1E Lois Webers Price of a Good Time comes to the Empress tonight or

spring fall It is a noticeable fact that rust does not affect a crop In dry years such as and there Is little probability of its doing sjJ in These were all seasons where the spring opened up Only in late with abundant espe cially throughout und heavy crops may we expect rust to from when the spring opens ear Orth ly the seeding should be delayed until storles ana the proper On the other hand in a late spring seeding should be done as soon as There is no authority who can lay down any exact course to follow as none can foretell the kind of season we may The best we can do is to use our best as no two reasons are Drought may come early in the season and break up a the or it may come late in the The effect on the crop is dif ferent in each Preferably would have it come at the end of the season rather than as when 1 comes early it affects the crop more sy checking the growth of the plant in the early by drying out th stools in the formation of small heads and by reducing the plant to a sjngle When conditions are favorabl in the early part of the a heal thier stronger plant is establishei more stems and longer beadb Even light showers and th crop carries If drought comes af ter it is headed out it will stand con siderable and a light rain wil be sufficient to bring the crop ti at least with one advantage that the straw is sufficiently long ti harvest Tho big thing is to get the plant1 well established in tho early stages up totho time of heading and this can seldom bo done if sown too early and droughty conditions The Course to Adopt in Vhen the spring opens up at the end of
