GOOD CROPS TO BE SEEN In a Trip From Lethbridge t Cardston and West to Foothills A trip from Lethbridge south through Magralh and Spring Coule- and Cardston districts, and wes through the Leavict and Caldwell dis tricts, finds the winter wheat ex- ceptionally good condition. From Magrath west to the Belly river, there are some really fine fields of grain and the farmers ia the Cardston el ectorial district have no reason to be concerned about the crop prospects Spring- wheat, while looking well, is not very far advanced in length, but a few rains will stimulate it. One marked impression made upon the traveller through the entire coun try is 'the difference in the methods j of farming. On one side of the road there will be an excellent crop, while right across from it will be a field in wretched shape. It is merely a contrast between good farming and bad farming, and it is safe to say that if good farming had been followed generally jn Southern Alberta this year, there might uot-be so much mur- muring about a crop failure. Just beyond Pot Hole, A, A. Drake has two fields of- spring grain that are a revelation. They are keeping, their color perfectly, and look healthy though the growth is backward on ac- count of lack of rain. The revela- tion of the this farm is the fact that there has been practically no rain since the seed was sown. The grain is looking healthy aruj green, while all around the prairie grass is as brown as a berry, and the grass short- er than it has been for a great many years. One cannot help but become en- thusiastic over the Cardston country as an ideal country for mixed farm- ing. From Cardston west to the foot- hills mixed farming is the rule. Cat- tle and horses are seen, and from the hills the green grain meets the eye in all directions. The hay and grass U. S. CROPS WORST- IN LAST TEN YEARS. Crop Reports Show That Conditions of July 1 Were Very.' Bad, and Lower Than Ten-Year Average. Washington, July crop growth' of the United States on July 1 was lower than at any time during the past ten years, according to a crop report of the department of ag- riculture issued to-day. The report says: "The general average condition of crop growth in the United States on July 1 was about 5. 5 per cent, low- er than on July i; 1909: 3.8 per cent lower than July 1, 1908, and 3.4 per cent, lower than the ten-year average condition on July 1."
