PROSPECTS IS ALBERTA (Staff Correspondence Toronto Globe) Edmonton, July is every reason to be encouraged about the prospects of the Western-crop this year, and six weeks of fairly decent weather will practically, guarantee a safe harvest. July opened with an in- finitely better outlook, than was the 'case last year, and it is doubtful if the situation was ever as promising at ibis date in previous seasons. All grains have come along well during the past two months and there has been a minimum 'of The crop was doing Vrell on Dpaainicn Day in 1907, but it was two to four weeks behind, and it never caught up, ex- cept in a few highly favored sections. There is no section of the West where the growth is backward this year and all of them report conditions to be al least up to the average. The general story! which is to.ld bv the .bulletins and other mediums cf information from the fields is that the grain is two, three, or even four weeks aheac of last year. That is enough. The farmer only needs to remember how serious and how numerous were th handicaps from ''-which--the- country suffered a year ago. It is not prob able nor is it more tha similar misfortunes will attend agri cultural activity in 1SOS. If the hai and frost and hot winds which wer features of the last season were t be repeated this year they would no do as much damage, because th grain would be in better shape t withstand -the Large Yield Assured. -'It may. be definitely asserted tha there will be large yields of all grains this fall. The season has already ad vanced far enough to make that state- ment posible. No combination oi circumstances which has ever "been known in the West can rob the coun- try of its whole harvest. It will have a sufficient return to 'sustain .itself for another year. How much more it wil lhave depends upon the weather which prevails batwecn now and the middle of August. Fine, dry condi- tions during the present, month, with an occasional shower, will answer the purpose. -An odd '5scorchor" or two will help. When the grain is headed out the West "will allow the tempera- ture to vary a little, as long as it re mains at least moderately warm With an atmospheric .programme .0 this nature the prairie -will be en- abled to bring forth its increase by the middle of August, and after that time it will be simply a question of saving the crop in good shape. Only Guesses as Yet. The remarkably good progress that the grain crop has made within the past niontct uss inuuC6u LUC gucssors to make their calculations on the pos- sible yields; It may well be imagin- ed that the predictions so fur have hiclined decidedly the optimistic side, and little account has been tak- uen of pranks on the part of the wea- ther. The wheat production-has al- ready been estimated, at to bushels, according to ng Juijr, aixl August, and these .may e heard from in even the most pros- erous season. It would be too much o expect that the whole West could _ these visitors entirely, and heje will le reports of damage from aribus -'parts .of the country gef ore wo more months have passed. It may seem fair to'strike an average for a lumber of consecutive seasons- and >ase an this an estimate cf the prob- able yield for this year. What the Statistics Show, The. average production oi wheat n western Canada during the past ne years has been about nineteen bushels per acre, and some authori- ties have made use of this figure in reaching a premature conclusion with reference to the present crop. A yield of nineteen bushels for the :ntire country should be regarded as and. even the most enthus- iastic westerner could expect nothing better. But it should be remembered that the area -of cultivation has ex- tended and increased in practically every. direction during the past ten years. In 18S8 a few million bushels of wheat were raised in Manitoba, and a few thousands in other portions of. the West..
