Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager BUILD UP THE COUNTRY Ezcrd of Trade is certainly spending Its energies in the right di rection these days in trying to build up the country around the city. We will' never get manufacturers unti we have the country well settled; with oirosperous fanners. What the maim facturers want is a market and they will only get a 'market thai will ap- peal to when the country is'fill up. la its efforts to settle the country the Board of Trade is follow- ing the right course by encouraging the farmers already on the land to go into stock raising "under a system of loans guaranteed by responsible citi- zens. Once the Leffibridge district is settled up witlx farmers who hare more than one string to their bow there will be prosperity in the city as well as the country. In the cities we have built far .ahead of the agricul- tural development, and only the ces- sation of speculative operations made us. realize that fact. Ail our energies henceforth should be directed towards filling up the country, and the out- come of that policy will be a realiza- tion of our hopes for the growth of the city. GOVERNMENT LOANS TO FARMERS Alberta government cannot be- gin too soon on. a poliev ol providing cheaper money for the fanners, bub before adopting a policy careful and intelligent consideration should1 be given, to all its provisions The farm- er is. in need of financial 'help, but not all the farmers are Worthy of It There are irresponsibles. on the farm as well as in the "city. Government floans should go to ..the worthy, farmer, wants.-to stay on the farm and who" jcaows how to farm., In the past the farmers have be come more..or less embarrassed finan- cially, not so much ,because of.-the failure of .their, farming operations-as on -account of, their "too heavy invest- ments machinery and in many eases, land. In these days when the possibilities and need of mixed fann- ing .are impressed upon them they ilud themselves without the means of buying stock. Government loans can 1 assist them in 'stock for itheir farms and the policy should toe directed along that line more than all else. The government will necessar- 1 ily have to restrict its loans. Finan- cial aid cannot be goven fop many things "the farmers would like; it inust be given .with the object of serving not only the best interests of the farmer, but the best interest cf the whole province. "CROP PROSPECTS HERE AND ELSEWHERE Crop conditions seem to be bad an many parts of Saskatchewan and pre- just now are not as cheerful as they were a few -weeks ago. The Deputy Minister of Agriculture in Sag- katchewan Eays that the country west pf-Mprtlach 'burning up. Accord- ing to the Regina Province, 'he said, i "that tti e farther west you go the .worse the condition is. Par- jticularly around Maple Creek, Aisask and Prussia are the farmers terribly i IB need of rain, and In .some localities 1 erops are literally being burned up. Along some of the branch lines of the C.N.R, and C.P.R., near Maple Creek and Aisask, farmers will'have a total 2oss in all probability. "Particularly on the high land i throughout the pi-ovince west of Mort1- i -loch are the crops suffering from dry I and hot weather. A sweep country running northwest and southeast i through the Dirt Hills is being burned i up by the intense heat, and unless the rain, and cooler .weather relieves the I situation, Mr. Mantle said he feared I tue farmers iu many of. the, districts would have a total loss this year. .There lias been considerable rainfall immediately surrounding Regina, but the farther west you go the worse the coidttlon 4s, he said. Farms are be- ing literally- burned up by. the intense and crops are withering and dy- ing from lack of moisture, while the farmer stands helpless in Ills cabin door watching the sky for a cloud and I praying for rain which never comes." j F, W. Green, of Moose Jaw, a prona- Inantlarmer, has received Intimations j effect about the "It the old, old condition wkfch Wft were up apalnst In this dis- trict in early rtays, and I am un- 4er the Impremion that the difficulty of the fact that yti W covered for ,culblvattou of the soil in those particular districts. "In thU district, if the work of toe !and was as I eee it done iu many of the newer, districts jwe could not grow even our seed here today. I have 116 desire to criticise or find fault with the methods adopted by WIG fanners in other except to aid them, and I would'say to them, 'Do as we tried deep previous to June 20th, give thorough cultivation during the summer, and sow the following year. Cut the stub- ble high and leave it as a snow catch- er'''during the winter, thoroughly disc the ground the following spring, and sow again without, ploughing.' 'This method has proved entirely successful, and on my own farm and surrounding ones we have had no failure nor approach to failure for 20 years. Regarding work there. IB a stand there on our ground today which promises forty bushels to tibe acre barring accident." There is encouragement !n what Mr. Green says.- -Moose Jaw hat adverse experiences In tiie past but iiaa overcome them with more Intel :igent farming. Out of adverse years Southern Alberta will also reap 'bene- fits. Even, now we are finding thafi summer fallowing is well worth and that where this system has beau practised crops are looking better than where the method has not been adopted. The reports from Saskatchewan in- dicate that the drought is mora or less common in Western Canada. It is hot confined few districts in Southern Alberta, at any rate. It is a mistake to say that all Southern Alberta ia badly hit thla year. In many districts there will be an average crop, though generally speaking the yield will 'be considerably under other years.. Around Fincher Creek crops are reported well the average nnd there is no panicky 'eeltng there, if what the Echo anc some of its correspondents' say repre- sents view of the district. -Through- mt the eoutlh there will Tie crops in every district, some a fair some small, and some very poor As we said before, well .'summer fallowed and will be- the most productive.

From information furnished the board it would appear that some of tiro J5tockmc-n in the south: feel that more wells will have to be dug. on their property to ensure the saving of_ a percentage of their stock. Buying Out Of Season M' fANY buyers of every class of merchandise come to decisions with respect to their plans, and pur- chases during t h e summer months. Aware of their needs they are responsive to influences, appeals anil opportunities months in ad- vance of the season of their ne- cessities. An advertiser who withdraws his messages 'to the buyers of his wares during the summer months chills buying ardor and postpones arid endangers the ga- thering of the fruit of his manu- facturing labor. The buyer's resistance strength- ens, and the buying impulse sub- sides, by the withdrawal or weakening of the pressure of advertising. The restoration of adequate' pressure later on is accomplished at a cost which represents no saving in adver- tising bills, and the chances arc that many sales have been hope-' lessly lost in the meantime, The buying Impulse which ex- presses itself in pre-season buy- ing is.capabli of stimulation, and it is go'id business on the part oi advertisers to maintain during the summer, months their customary an- nouncements. BASEBALL GAME LOST THE Truth About Crops CONTINUED FROM FRONTPAGE The company is meeting :ths crisis with their usual courage and stabil- ity, and if a thousand tons even are produced the company will open the plant. GRAIN CROPS FAIR The crops in the Raymond district are not sufiering to any serious de- gree as yet, excepting in the north end Q[ the district. The iall grain is splendid. It is all well headed out and is about three feet high on an average. A fine sample was shown the Herald yesterday growu on the farm of Bisby and Brown, nine miles south, of town. Ifc measured over iour in height, and was headed out, although the kernels were not yet fully filled. There were signs at the roots that moisture was needed, and it is the opinion of the writer, viewing the matter from a conserva- tive standpoint, that the wheat will need considerable rain to make a normal yield. The kernels will not become plump and developed without ist'i'nv A few showers, however, will insure a bumper harvest. STWLING AND NEW DAYTON There are sonic good crops in the Stirling and New Dayton districts, also- Where scientific methods have been followed the fields look fine, while beside them, where the culti- vation has been slovenly and unsys- tematically done, the crop is a fail- ure. The hay crop in Stirling is un- usually heavy on lands under the ditch. It is thought that the fall will be ready for the binder in the south in about three wcetts, or even less. Oats and barley arc all heading out, but the stalks arc rather shorfc. There is plenty of labor in the coun- try now, and there will certainly he no need for the importation ol for- eign help this fall. Altogether the outlook is not all discouraging. There will at least bo ui abundance of feed in the country, and the farm- ers are everywhere declaring that they arc going in for mixed farming purely, just ,is quickly, as they can stock their farms. como of her preference for md now ho ge Austria has withdrawn the-restric- tion prohibiting the C.

London, July all newspaper reference to the Empress of Ireland judgment 'muKa special note of that the judgment makes clear? that the catastrophe might have happened anywhere, and the safety of the St. Lawrence route is in no way challenged. What's a Sea Lawyer The Manchester Guardian re- marks that If the watertight doors were closed at the time of the col- lision or immediately afterwcrds, the whale science of naval architecture is in something of a fix. The more probable explanation Is, the Guardian thinks, that some or all of the doors were open and not afterwards closed. Quartermaster Galway's imputations against the liner's steering qualities prove him merely to be one of those sea lawyers to foe found on every sea and nearly every uardlan. The Liverpool Courier remarks that the only reflection on Captain Ken- dall in 'the report, namely, that it would have been better to give the Storstad a wider Is largely nul- ified by the conclusion that failure to do go was not a contributory cauae to the disaster.
