Mr. and Airs. W. N. Men-lam Lucky Strike are In tho city. oC FIRST OF AUGUST Iron Springs Man Expects Fair Yield on His Farm, Despite Dry Weather D. A. McDonald, postmaster at Iron Springs, was in the city yesterday, and to tho Herald he stated that ho expected to ho harvesting Bpring wheat by the first of August. Mr. McDonald has a field of spring wheat on what he considers light, rather poor land. They have boon without rain since about tho middle of Juno. In spito of this fact lie says his wheat will yield from 12 to 14 bushels to the ncro of a good grade of wheat. Tho result to him Is sur- "two for one" is worth while prising. Tho heads are filling fairly well, though they are small. On heavier land in his district the harvest will not stnrt so early but the yield will be around 25 bushels to the acre without any more rain. Over at Turin, whero they had an extra rain later In tho season, some fields will yield "0 to 35 bushels. This will bo on summer fallow and new land. Tho ground is very dry but the wheat was well rooted and tho straw was full of sap when the dry spell started. This sap seems to bo sufficient to fill tho heads fairly well. Mr. McDonald is convinced that a country that will raise crops as good as this In spite of the advorso conditions In July must be alright.

Tho affair was voted a huge success by all.   � Mrs. Barnard, wife of tho lieutenant-governor, signed the first economy pledge card at Victoria last week when five hundred women met under tho auspices of the household economy committee of the Local Council of Women. A resolution endorsing rational economy, two meatless days a week, and the elimination of tho wastage of grain for alcoholic purposes was passed unanimously. Miss Crease, the president, said in the course of a few remarks: "Our main object is to make economy useful to our empiro and allies. We are asked to be unselfish on a largo scale, and to think of our brothers and sisters across the water more than* we think of ourselves. Don't to sec what your neighbor is doing. Judge for yourself what you should do and do it." Bishop Schofield in an impressive address expressed tho opinion that the success of the empiro depended on the enrollment of the armies of the kitchen, and that the rank and file of people must settle down to serious things. Miss Juniper, tho domestic science expert, suggested government regulation of food supplies in hotels and a provincial food advisor who would be ablo to give balanced rations week by weok during the year. Mrs. Davenport urged an appeal for tho manufacture of oleo-margerine to take the placo of butter. -Vancouver Daily Province. ; THRIFT THOUGHT.
