A?; Craig, deputy minister of agriculture, sums up the crop situation in Alberta in the annual report of the department which has been laid on the table of the legislature. , He adds: "Prices for all kinds of grain have been high, consequently the farmers of the province should realize as much as, if not more ihan, they have ever realized for a previous season's crop."

' i M. P. JOHNSTON for hogs, and an increase In production is anticipated owing to the demand for breeding sows in the fall. There was also an active demand for breeding ewes. On account of .grain prices it is stated few steers are being fed for the spring market, and there is little doubt -the price of finished spring beef will be exceedingly high. Calling attention to the market that was opened in the resit during the year for timothy, seed, it if. mentioned that already some 40 cars have been shipped to eastern Canada, and that the Alberta, seed has found favor because of the bald, bright, plump quality of the kernel as compared with the seed secured elsewhere; There is no doubt, it is. claimed^ timothy seed production will become / an  Important branch oJHhe farming business of the ! country. Some 200p>cars of potatoes I have been"shipped to eastern Canada at very remunerative prices, but the I strict American regulations stopped the export movement in that direction ! in. the middle of the season. The production of cheese and butter increased during the year , and ' phenomenal prices were secured for creamery butter. Shipments were: made to England by the Dairy.Commissioners of the three western provinces, and the Alberta product commanded-the highest price. Shipments were also made to eastern Canada where good prices �w ere realized.1 The Pacific coast trade continues to bo Improve that very little New Zealand butter is now being sold in the .city markets there.;In connection with the supply of farm labor it is stated that through the offices the . department opened at Lethbridge, Calgary and Edmonton, 10,897 farm � hands were distributed. The report also calls attention to the work ofj the schools of " Agriculture which continue to have a large at-, tendance, the short course schools,; the demonstration trains, the demon- { stration farms, 'Which have had" a very successful year from the standpoint! of crop production, and the increase'j and improvement of live stock, and; it is mentioned that full - district i agents are now stationed at Vermilion, Stony Plain, Olds, Sedgewlck and j Claresuolro.. All of them had been | connected! with the agricultural i schools. Their work during the pastj season was in carrying on boys' and girls' clubs.
