(Special to The Herald) Macleod. July crops all around Macleod are good. Tt is hard to find a poor crop any place around Macleod. The prospects for spring wheat were never better. The winter wheat that was not re-seeded has pulled through better than anticipat- eded. Winter wheat'is all hea'ded and spring wheat is heading and is now waist high. There is a .-special heavy j crop o[ prairie hay. Timothy, alfal- fa and brome grass are a splendid crop. Haying is in. full swing. It 'be difficult to see any year to see a better crop of winter wheat than is now on the farm'of P. Book- I er Reid, about three miles east of Macleod. Kis four hundred acre field of Alberta Hed is headed out and a j good' height. j Miller and .Jones, who live seven j miles north of Macleod. have a dan- dy crop of fall wheat, about four nun dred acres all the same so good that it oan't 'be beaten. A -neighbor, N. j Donohue, also has a splendid eighty acre field of fall wheat; T. Violette who lives eighteen miles south of Macleod has sixty-five acres of fall wheat which is beginning to turn yellow. Fie has thirty-five acres of oats which will soon 'be heading out and are also a good crop. He has j broken one hundred and five acres, about half of which he is seeding This week to fall wheat. Wheat Headed Out L. C. Riley. who-lives about seven miles southeast of Macleod, has over a hundred acres of wheat all spring wheat, which is -all headed out and a. good height and an even growth. Farmers are just starting haying. j Grass is rank but there will not be so much hay on account of .so much j extra breaking being done. Mr. Riley has about 135 acres broken which he will sow to spring wheat next year. He has been settled in -the Macleod district for four years and has al- ways had a good crop anti this year's prospect is as good as any. He re- jfused 98 cents a bushel for his stand- i ing crop yesterday. j H, who lives three miles I north of Macleod, brought a sample difference between Sunlight Soap and ordinary FoiiOw Directions I I Lever Brothers, Tpionto, will send you I free a cake of their famous Plan to! toilet scan, if vou mention- this paper. free a cake of their tarnous jf laxuoJ if you mention- this paper. i of stalk of alfalfa grown by scientific farming without irrigation. One of j the plants weighod eighteen ounces, land was four feet and a half inch ;hiffh an'd a fair average sample of whole plot, in fact this sample jhad some stalks broken off. His 'grain .crop is very good. Spring svheat and are heading out. i Oats-are coming along well. In that j neighborhood there has been a lot of breaking 'done. The acreage under icrop next year should be fifty per i cent, mare than that of this year. (And the prospects for the yield tins jyear are certainly the best yet. A few weeks ago the crops appeared later than last year but the excep- i tionally favorable weather of the last three weeks has made them even ahead of last year's bumper crop. The crops in the Standoff settle- ment about twenty miles south of Macleod are excellent. Wilson's crop of eight hundred acres and Pearson's of are both- good. Their spring wheat is excel- lent and heading out and. about two feet high. There has been more than twice as much breaking done around Standoff this year as ever was done before. Nearly every farmer -has broken from fifty acres up; Wilson has brofen acres and is getting his five (seed drills to commence seeding Al- berta Red next week. More railway facilities will be need ed to handle next year's crop. Gardens of Macleod In the .gardens of Macleod are seen in abundance -tomatoes, beans, peas, now potatoes, cucumbers, radishes, i lettuce, onions and corn in blossom. Sweet corn will be in abundance in the near future. Much of -the corn in. Macleod is grown from seed ripened in Macleod gardens last .fall. Pump- j kin utKl buuash vines over ton feet I long and in blossom tire to bo soon in ithe gardens Currants and ber- rit'S riiK'tiing. All those who have attempted to grow fruit such as apples have the 'best I'vidunco to prove that horticul- turo is not un impossibility in Albcr- !ta. Joseph .Hicks has apples and plums. Campbell has apples 'and crab apples. H. G. Matthews has crab apples yielding a bountiful crop. Mrs. C. 11. Campbell and Jas. Kogers each have black heart cherries. For some days the citizens have the home grown, new po i tatocs. j Visitors to Macleod cannot help but admire and appreciate the cool shade of Kennedy's fine grove of i trees. The hammock is certainly tempting these hot sultry days while sweltering in the sun of Sunny Al- berta. j At a game of cricket -uhis after- noon between the old, timers and the ncjw comers the old timers lost. The i tenderi'eet certainly s-howed that they have not tender -hands for they can catch a cricket ball. j Loads of new hay are now seen on the streets. Jl'he weather the last i'ew days has certainly been ideal hay j weather. This warm sunshine will surely make any late grain catch up. 'The [grain that is already headed out will soon be turning golden. Thwn it will be hurrah boys for the binder and the thresher. It will not be long. j The crops all around Macleod, the old time ranch centre, are now giv- 'ing prospect of. a wonderful yield. The total acreage is large but will be still larger next year on account of the many steam and gasoline out- fits operating in the district. j The grand celebrat on and annual exhibition of the Macleod Agricultur- al Society, will be held here on Wed. nesday, Thursday and Friday, Aug. 5, and 6. The prize lists are out and include handsome prizes for calo- tte, horses, poultry, grain, roots and ,vegetables, canned .fruits (Alberta bread, plants and. flowers, I work, school work and sev- eral special prizes. All interested .interested should secure a copy of prize list from the secretary-. i This weather could not 'be beaten for helping along the crops, which are excellent in the district around Macleod. There is every evidence of 'a bountiful harvest and a. busy time this fall and winter for our meroh- jants and millers. Harry Rand, who lives two miles south of Macleod, has a splendid 1 crop. -lames Buzzard, who lives about :seventeen miles west of Macleod, has a fine crop of timothy which will average rwo and a half tons per acre and some parts would go .fourv tons I to the acre. Local showers fretiuently are nclp- iny: the spring grain which 11 yield a big crop. Chuppell, who lives .twenty miles west n.f 51'urleod in the Fbi-cu- pine Hills, has barley as high as u buggy wheel. His oats are- about two feet high.'
