All j grains have come aloig well during the past two mouth? and there has been a minimum of damage. The j crop was doing well on Dominion Day in 1907, but it was two to four weeks j 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 at least up to the average. The general story which is told bv the bulletins and other mediums of information from the fields is that the grain is two, three, or even four weeks ahead of last year. That is enough. The farmer only needs -to remember how serious and how numerous were the handicaps from which the country suffered a year ago.

MAN STABBED A WAITRESS Girl Refused To Go To Circus With Young Fellow Who Had Been Keep- ing Company With Her Large Yield Assured. It may be definitely asserted that 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 of circumstances which has ever been known in the West can rob the coun- try oi 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 between now and the middle of August. Fine, dry condi- tions during the present- month, with an occasional shower, will answer the purpose. An odd "scorcher" or two will help. When the grain is headed out the West will allow the tempera- ture little, as long as it re- mains at least moderately warm. With an-' atmospheric programme of 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 The average production 01 wheat in western Canada during the past tne years lias 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. yield of nineteen bushels for r Everything required in the construction of a Building, Lumber and all kinds of Mill Work TRY WM.

Office, Yards and Round and Bompus Streets Telephone 153 Only Guesses as Yet. The remarkably good progress that the grain drop has made within the past month has induced the guessers to make their calculations on the pos- sible yields. Iu may well be imagin-: A the entire country should be regarded as abundant, 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 189S a few million bushels of wheat were raised in Manitoba, and a few thousands in other portions of the West. Now Alberta, where grain raising may be said to havei only begun as an industry produces} about as much as did Manitoba ten years ago, while Saskatchewan has made enormous strides towards the top place in the list of wheat-raising provinces. Conditions which applied to a few compact.settlements in Mani- toba in 1S93 cannot be said to apply to the whole cf the vast western country today. Great Climatic Variations. A multitude of variations in cli- mate, in soil, and even in farming methods, account for the difference in the two situations, and the evolu- tions and changes have been gradu- al. The average of the past ten years may therefore, be an inaccurate basis for calculation. It might be safer to choose a particular season in which the principal conditions were most similar to those which now prevail, and use the experience of that year in making deductions about probable yields tor 190S. The difficulty in this connection isc that it is not possible to find a season in the recent past in which the conditions were similar to those of the present year. Old farmers who have been in the West for more than a quarter of a century have declared that 1903 beats all other seasons, as far as they recollect, in regard to the progress made by grain crops up to the end of June. Some oi them will be apt to mention a season, when the growth was "al- most as 3.5 it is this year but they will not go so far as to admit ..uC OQX13.J. Co. tuc pi'trsenl Season can be found.

BRUCE, Secretary. 13-lyr Another tragedy was narrowly averted last night when" Mary Fer- rens, a waitress at the Windsor hotel had a close escape from being mur- dered. About eleven o'clock she had returned from tiie ci-rcus with a friend who left her at the front gate of the cottage east of the Windsor hotel. She went 'on from the gate toward the b.ick oi the cottage where her room was. Just as she was pass- ing through the gate that' leads to the backyard a man sprang out upon her and stabbed her on the top of the left shoulder at the base of the neck. The knife penetrated about an inch and a half but fortunately entered a thick muscle thus preventing its wounding the lung. Dr. Galbraith and tho police were immediately phoned for. The doctor found that while the wound was very j painful it is not dangerous. Constable Cribb and Detective ilg- an were at once on the scene. Con- stables Kroning and Edey were sum- moned and with Chief Gille.spie set to work to arrest the perpetrator of tho dastardly deed. From tho girl it was learned that she had refused to go to the circus with a young follow with whom she had been keeping company more or less for some time, and had gone with another man. When they re- turned after the circus she saw the first fellow, whoso namo it is ascer- tained is Rudiak, walking up and down the sidewalk in front of the cottage. When she left her com- panion, she heard him whistle and the next thing she knew she was stabbed. She screamed and ran into the cottage. The police, immediately started .af- ter the felow .Rudiak and finally landed him at the residence of A. Olson, who had phoned the police that he there and had kept him. The police knew that he worked for the C. P. R. on the section under Foreman Nelson and sometimes stayed at- Olsen's when Mr. Olsen was away being regarded as a trusty man. When he came there about three o'clock in the morning he was cov- ered with dirt as if he had been hid- ing in the ditches or in a culvert and had a rock in his pocket. This morning Miss Ferrens was taken to the Barracks and positively identified Ruddiak as the man on the sidewalk, the accomplice to the deed. Tlie police expect- to land the other fellow who was apparently hired or persuaded to do the deed. Miss Ferrens is well known in the city. Her peiple live here and all are eminently respectable Russians. She has been working as waitress at the Windsor for about two months and is considered a very capable girl. Rudiak is an intelligent and well known Bukovenian. worked for the, C. P. R. He here has for about two years. He speaks good English and has frequently acted as interpreter for the C. P. R. and in the courts as he speaks several Eu- ropean languages.

There is a fine oi fifty dollars and costs for failing to comply with this requirement. Several bridges and crossings have suffered considerable damage' recent- ly fiom having the engines cross thorn without the protecting planks. OPIUM DEALERS PROTEST But Ottawa Government Shows No Sympathy Ottawa, July thf> Senate to- day Sir Mackenzie Bowell moved for papers concerning the suppression of tho opium traffic. Mr. Scott stated that two commun- ications had been received. One was from the Hon. Fred Peters of British Columbia who said that the Chinese merchants thought it a hard- ship if they were not allowed to get rid of their stocks of opium they had on hand and that it would be a hard- ship to deprive users of the drug al' nt once and that deaths would result. Mr. Mclnnes solicitor of certain merchants, wrote offering to put up security if the merchants were al- lowed six months to dispose of their stocks. Senator Scott stated that, he had brought the matter before the coun- cil but had found no inclination to allow the six months period. as large. It is still a little early, how- ever, to indulge in calculations as to the output. There are no flaws in the situation at present, and every- one hopes that the favorable condi- tions will be maintained until the last bushel is thrashed. But it is a far cry to harvest. Rust, frost, hot winds, hail and insects are the most dangerous enemies of the grain dur- ing July and August, and these may be heard from in even the most pros- perous season. It would be too much to expect that the whole West could these visitors entirely, and guesses concerning grain-yields, and while there can be no quarrel -with the spirit which prompts a fat esti- mate, there is no evidence of the fin- ality in ccmecuon The ordinary mortal, far removed from Boards.of Trade, clearing houses and other exchanges, is not giving himself on crop production. He is satisfied if fair progress is made in his partic- ular district, and he does not lose much sleep ove what may happen "if" certain things do not intrude. That explains the general peace ,of mind which prevails in the strictly farming communities of -the West. The men who sow and reap are glad to note thai, their fields are in good shope, and beyond that ther inter-1 est is largely academic.
