The district covered has been the C. P. R line from Wilson to Coutts, the Card ston branch from Stirling Junctloi to Cardston; and the homestead coun try east of Warner and Lucky Strike The information which tiic llerali sivcs Is reliable-andr may be taken as an absolutely correct and impartia report of actual conditions as the> have been found In the district cover ed. For the facts-and figures, the representative of this paper called upon the presidents of Boards Trades, fanners, 'bank managers ant leading citixens, and. the Jicures sei down may he absolutely relied upon Coutts Had Narrow Escape At Coutts the representative got his information from a prominent merch ant who gave out information that conditions on both sides of the international .boundary'ut this.point had begun to_assufne a serious aspect 'when the rain came. He had been in conversation with several of the farm- ers of the district during the last couple of days, and was' confident in making the statement that this rain will bring forward any backward grain, and will save the situation for tho far south. He reported .that if anything, .conditions were worse ,pn tho Montana side of. the boundary the few showers which Coutts and Sweet Grass had had during the dry period before, the passed from the Milk River. Ridge over .to 'the S'weet Grass hills, escaping the poi; tion of Montana south and west of Coutts. Milk River Looks for: Bushels north to iUilk River uls trict, conditions seemed to improve, and tlie growth of giain ami the amount sown s-eemed greater. In con; vorsaiion with W. McDonald, of the Milk River Mercantile, the Herald .was informed that. a. good raia' had-fallen both at Coutts and Jlilk all the' homestead country these points. BaJd Mr. McDonald, "are. all first class, -and everything seems favorable foi a bunipei crop jield this jear Crops, i-f anything, homestead district east of Milk River than they aie in the immediate vicin ity of the town, but this ,gram of Mill be maiKeted at Milk rtnei, and mil go to increase Milk Rnor's shipment this fall assin, Lntkj StnUe and Altoiado will nil contribute their stare .to. swell Milk Rivers laige estimate anj it will be largeij due to these distncts that the additional bushels es timated over that of last year is .an- ticipated Milk Rner this >ear fig llies on bushels being maiket ed from this shipping point, and fioni piesent indications it that their estimate is not too' great to .be realized. Warner Will Outclass 1511 With a retold of I5V4 bushels of wheat, 100 busheli, of oats, 51 bushels of barley and IS bushels of flax raised, pel acie, the hustling lown and progressive: farming district: Qt the southern branch of the G.: P. R; promises outclass anj ciops pio dlicetl in 1911. Last year the esti mated yield for this district was some- thing like 100 000 bushels and this jear an additional oO 000 bushels at least has been predicted .by those who are familiar with conditions and know the possibilities of .Warner soil nmlei proper weaXhci conditions' this district'will probably be able, as much fail wheat as anj distilct south of Lethbridge. Bushels, in Homestead Country Few people who have not visitecl the homestead district reast of Milk River, Warner, New ling an> idea of the immense possibilities and advancement in ihia I locality.. A drive through.tile district north tind south was a revelation to the representative of the Herald. Land has been broken throughout the en- tire district, and a good deal of fall wheat bus been- sown. Never before in the short history of the homestead country has there such a bright outlook in iho immediate district of Lucky Strike. It is said that thero is something in the vicinity- of bushels of grain, mid this the Herald believes is looking better thnil. the grain farther west, along the railway. At the present time the haul from Lucky Strike to-tlie closest railroad lioint is some forty'.miles. It was hoped Hint this the Stirling Wc.vburn branch which is building from Stirling to Wnybiirn be completed far enough cast: to admit all this hirge amount of grain being hauled to points on the now. line. Last year V. Veiinum. onq. of the largest land holders in Lucky Strike district, iliriiil that thought It. .would bi> n 'fcood-, Kcheme -.'or a graili merchant to buiid au oi'trntor along tho pro- posed and hold tile grain till this your when It could bo more easily 'transported to market. The Herald has on good authority to sij that theie will bo a good possi. blllty of work: 'on' the second twontj- live or forty' inl'.es of this line being al least begun tliU fall, hut It hard ly 'within tho range of possibility that it will be laldlfnr enough M enable Luck) Sttike and Tnlth districts to ship.tills .way. first twenty-live miles o'f the road .will-be completed for earlj fall shipments of kraln, and its soon .as .completed it is believed that work the east uor tion of the contract., This will bring a railroad leu miles of Strike, and be a valuable asset to the district. A large number of have gone, into this country .-this'spring, and have broken land add some of them have seeded crop which will be harvested this fall A great area of fall nheat will be sown In-the Lucky.
