Lauder was appearing under WlHlani Morris' management at the New York theatre. Across the street in tlie Hotel Astor a big organization with nation-' wide ramifications'was holdng Its annual banquet. One of Its promoters-told Morris that the organization w#nt-' ed Lauder to sing u few songs at 'th^ lanquet. Hei e-icplalned that it -^vould aUe, ,but tonluiiiujtes. ,at the slujger's ime at the most; that he could jump into a taxi, be taken across the street, and bo back in time to go In hla turn at the 'theatre. For those ten minutes the organization was willing to "'pay �2500j A Vhllo later Lauder came into Morris' office and he.told Lauder oMt, "Here's a few easy baubeesyfor,you,; Sandy," said Morris,.addressing,, him by the name'bo has always .used to: Harry, "and I liavo^no objectldnp lo your making them." s. ! "Of course they drink a lot-and have altogether some uproorions time at tlie dinner," said Lauder. Hr. Morris said they probably did, and utter a moment's thought Lauder turnet^ down the offer flat. He comniunlctatedl the comedian's decision to' the reore-Hentatlve of the organizatlouland tliei latoer promptly raised tlieatite to $8,-500,for the few minutes.

The tlgurea are carefully compileil and go to show tlial there has been Some overestimating ot the total crop. It lias generally been believed to he. about 1.'5,000,000 bushels aud tUern \ were 10,000,000 bu.shels si 111 to .shlji, but this baa been about. 4,000,000 bush- i els over the mark. | The Herald's purpose In gal'lierlng these figures wa.n to give the fartners who are asking whether the emliargb on shipments to Fort William would 1)0 lifted the information ou which they would be able to, figure it out for tliemsfllvo's. The government's purpose In enforcing the embargo was to keep enongli wheat in thb wdst to keep the mills going until sucb time the new crop comes in. Has tho west a surplus of wheat, and should it be shipped out? So far as the Lethbrldge district Is concerned, there are about 5,000,000 bushels ot marketable, wheat, iu addition to wheat for spi;Jng seeding, stili In the farmers'^ hands. The tnilMng capacity ot the mills on the Lethbrldge division is about 1200 barrels a day, requiring some &400 bushols of wheat dally. There are about 100 days until the now crop comes in so that the mills on the division will require about 800,000 bushels of wheat,to tide them over until the new crop. This leaves 4,000,000 bushels for sniphioiit. Where will it go? Is In the Lead It every district in the had aa largt; a percentage ot wheat on hand, the mills of the west could not grind all the wheat in the hands, of tho farmers and in the elevators, but .Lethbrldge district is in the load and from its surplus -wiir very likely have t,o supply the mills and other districts. The indications, lUerotore, are that very little of the surplus~-wlll go forward to Fort William for shipment overseas hut will he distributed to various pointis in the west for milling purposes. This makes very little real difference to the farmer, tor the price is fixed In any" event. What It will mean, however, Is a very gradual movement throughout the summer mouths. The total Alberta wheat yield last year -was .53,000,000 bushels, estimated, so that the Lethbrldge district raised one-third ot the total.
