On, -.veil tilled land the yields will be but those on poorly cultivated ground drag down ill- average There are very few cul- tivated fields on the road passing west through Maclcod, so that the opportunity of observing was scant iii this neighborhood. P1NUI1LR Cltrnk'S mKNER CHOPS Tiierc isn't much from the corner of the Pcigan Reserve to Peigan sta- tion but as soon as Brocket is pass- ed, things begin to get greener and brighter. Pincher-Creek'is undoubted- ly the banner section ot the south this year. Mr. Huston, who is operating the Ires ranch near Pincher, told the Herald that every farmer within a radius of about 18 miles of Pincher Creek would get a crop, and that with the exception of the Fishburn everyone west, south and north oi Pincher would get a good average-yield. OATS 'WILL GO 60 HUSHELS By a "crop" Mr. Huston means .GO hushels of oats, 20 to 35 bushels of wheat ami 30 bushels of barley to Ihe acre. In other words, Ihe major- ity of the farmers' in that district will get a banner crop. And he is perfectly right. Field after field ot Ihe looking grain ever raised, is the rule. Tho wheat stands at an av- erage height, of three. leet, and it is all hcadt'd out. The winter. wheat is turning yellow, and will be ready for the binder about August 15. Prac- tie-ally every field bet-ween Pincher and Co'wlcy is as level and smooth as a' billiard table and as clean as a garden patch. This' applies to all the crops in the district. The stand is exceptional and there is enough moisture in the ground now to see every crop safely in the shock, fully matured, except in the case of grain Sown very laic. Some oats sown on the 10th of June, is, however, well advanced, and will although it was sown for feed. (Continued on page 8.) STREETS'AND TOWNS NAMED AFTER THIS MAN and would not made.
