Owing to the variety of conditions which exist throughout the province as to the amount of precipitation, types of soli, etc., it has ibcen thought advisable to divide province into six districts. As the conditions wUhin each district are similar, a more ac- curate account can be given, than by attempting -to .deal with all parts of ;b.6 province collectively Nt-rth-Wett District Includes all Mat portion of (he pro- Mnc'e north; of township -ie, or We- :askiwin, and from as far west as It s possible to gat any reliable Infor- mation, to ra.oge. 22 on the east. The irop conditions: .in -this district are ixceedingly fitvorablc, and many .of he correspondents are quite optimis- ic regarding prospects for a large rop this season. Generally speaking ceding was commenced about April Oth, ;anu was completed about May Oth, although considerable seedin; done after this date, these later eedings will however be utilized for reen feed, providing the season is nfayprable for ripening them. Spring grain asia' vegetables are ell advancer! throughout this dis- ict Somoi.repprts that growth hrdugi'out early of the sea- on was slo'w. However, the majority reports to date 'state that the warm eathp'1 coming .the latter part of coupled with the plentiful sup- iy of 'moisture which has fallen, has nused all .farm crops to make very growth. Soveial fields are ic oi' being from twelve to sixteen inches high. A number or winter wheat fields hnve-been win- ter; kHIed throughout the entire dis- trict, ,due, it is.claimed, to the heavy frost and. scarcity of snow during the month of acreage of fall wheat Is therefqre hkelv to be con eiderably lessened.

Roosevelt today indicated that during the campaign -he expected to speak to more.persons than almost auy oth- er candidate in the history of the country. He' says that he uHl cam j "He came here to tell me" he Colonel, "that they would said bold Republican primaries for presidential electors in North and that he b-elieved thej going to cany them for me six to one. He said they were going to put the Roosevelt name on the Republican ticket for electors, there might be Democrats also >vho would run for election as Koosevelt electors.

Spring 'grain is reported as'being from twelve to eighteen inches high and in some cases wheat is heading out. Some trouble from the use of poor seed and damage from cutworms is reported, -but the area affectad In this way la small. Fall wheat was winter killed 'to .quite a large extent and was iri many cases reseeded to spring grain. :The acreage to fall wheat will be considerably less than last year.

Seeding commenced in this district about April 5 and was not completed 1, This late seeding was due to the fact thai very lit tie plow- ing was. done last fall on account of the late harvest. The weather for seeding was favorable and consid- erable plowing was accomplished, but many correspondents report that nearly forty per cent, of spring grain was seeded on stubble The early .sown grains on summer- fallowerj and ploughed land is good, as thei'n was sufficient moisture stor- ed in the soil from last fall to give the crcp a start. Late seeding, and that which was sown on stubble has suffered considerably from .dry wea- ther, in portions of this district, it is even very doubtful If the recent heavy rains arrived soon enough t0 prevent the yield from being re- duced In gome cases. The majority of this district, has had plenty of rain and crops are looking well. Considerable damife la reported from cut worms, of grain being entirely .destroyed.
