SOUTMBN pacific Canada's Most Successful-Wheat Grower YIELD of 51.3S3 busTiels oT A wheat from acres of land, or 54 bushels 23 Ibs. on the average per acre, seems to appear Jlke an impossibility; but It is a fact that Mr. C. S. Noble, of Nobleforil, Alberta, has reaped this marvellous production from his farms In the harvest of 1316. This bountiful gift at nature to man Is likely tc attract as much attention to tils country as any other remarkable incident that has yet been noticed In connection with the progress of the Dominion In the farming or the industrial sphere. 53 men, 78 horses, 2 separators and 2 sheaf loaders did their part in tile of garnering the grain. On September Wth the threshing began, and proceeded merrily for some days, during which time moving pictures o! the operations were taken. The grain graded Numbers 1, 2, and 3. All of it was of the Marquis variety, which has been proved to give the best results of any species of wheat yet tried in West Canada. The seed from which one acre field that had been SOWH with hanii picked pedigree Marquis seed. .At a moderate estimate the land from which Mr. Noble has gathered his crop returns him an acre. After paying all expenses this famous grain' grower has a huge sum of money as a reward for bis exertions. But he well deserves all that has come to him. It is a fertile soil and a magnificent climate were bountiful, but the ability with whicfl- the agriculturist managed his ground was in no small way responsible for his success. Mr. Noble is a business man, ami is possessed of the gift of concentration that quality which always discovers the right road to the man who perseveres. He has a system of his own for doing every- thing, ami everything he does is done in the most systematic manner. With a staff of 120 men he operates three different farms. On the farms, and at the office where the farm schemes are planned, he is the supervisor. He has taught his employees to be regu- o( a machine. The office telephone connects him with every one of the different departments, and if there is anything which demands'his immedi- ate personal attention v.-hile he Is at the office his automobile is waiting, ready to convey him to the spot. The accounts of the property are all kept with a neatness, accuracy and regularity that would arouse the ad- miration of the most critical of char- tered accountants- Mr Noble was horn on a farm near State Center. Marshall County. Iowa, in the year 1873. His boyhood was spent largely on the farm. Shortly after reaching bis majority he llled on a quarter section of land near Knox, Nonh Dakota, where he lived until 1903. In that year he moved to Claresholtn, Alberta, married ..Miss Margaret Fraser, of Hawkesbury, Ontario, and, in addition to farming interests, later enjoyed a successful real estate business with bis present partner, Mr. T. C. Milnes. From this point his rise in the business rapid. In the year 1803 he to his present iocatl at Nobleford. Alberta, where he lives on Grand View Farm, with his family consisting nl'his wife, two sons and one daughter, giving practically all his attention to the farm. Thus it is seen that his life work lias heen that of a practical farmer. His entire cam-r has been marked by energy and foresight of an ex- ceptional quality, his prominent mental characteristics being courage in meeting facts squarely, accuracy in figuring costs, and boldness and originality in Coupled with sense and Shrewd insight into human nature. ha has a gift or imagination which is cor.-rtani.ly leading him on to greater tlunge and to blazing tue way for otbers to follow. He is a total abstainer from the use of all kinds of narcotics, and takes his place at work with any of his men whenever occasion requires. He is a life long church member and an elder in the Presbyterian Church at Noble. What the Press Agents Say At Stnrland After attaining great personal tri- innpli in the Jesse b.
