Yield Grassy Lake, July conul- tlons la this district are expressed in the words "extra good.'" Spring wheat, flax, barKiy and rvo are the principal grains, and all are looking well. A. careful survey by fi- nancial men justifies an So per caul, yield, and thoro will be an increase of 25 per cent, over last season In quantity. There was no damage to speak of, but a .few stubble fields are a irlfle short in the straw. Cutting will not start for several (lays, but tile spring grain is starting to color, and ten days should see the reapers busy. Carmangay Crops Look Well Carmungay, July wheat, which is the principal grain in tills dls trict, is starting to turn, and with fav- orable conditions cutting should be general in two weeks. What little fall i wheat was sown is now being cut. The winter wheat suffered slightly from the Hessian fly, perhaps affecting the yield from. 3 to 5 per cent. The other crops could not look better, and there is .no doubt 'but tiiat 80 per cent, of expectations .will be realized. Out east the. same story holds good. This district was favored with showers when other districts suffered from drouth, and tile result will be the big- gest yield of grain since the country was opened up. Magrath Is Satisfied Magrath, July be- gan yesterday in the Magrath district and the reports that were brought in- to town from th-3 fields that were be- ing cut, were m'pst satisfactory, and indications are that the grain will yield heavier than was at first cal- culated: Frank Miller commenced cutting yesterday' afternoon on his farm four miles west of town, his grain having ripened beautifully. It is a magnifi- cent stand, and will probably go forty bushels to the acre. A. Skelton, one of the largest farm- ers in the district, will commence to- morrow-, as he has several hundred acres' ready -for the .hinder. Rich started to .cut his fall whea't, south of town, today, and Jensen Brothers will shortly begin on their immense fields wrest and norlhwest of town. Bj week haivesting will be general Uii oujjiout 'this section ot country. Discussing 'the crop situa- tion, a prominent Tar-irier told your correspondent yesterday: "This is ideal weather for the-crops. The -rail wheat is ripening1 a whole lot of the spring grain is beginning to turn. I look good yields n this district; the to tal will not equal that of last season The drouth and cut worms did some damage, and an enormous amount ol land has 'been summer fallowed this season, and will he planted to fail wheat, bunging up the acieage next year Then! arc some splendid barley and flax'crops in tbe'Magrath district this- year, and if you'll listen to me, Magrath Is going to 'set the pace at the Dry-Farming Congress and the 'arious exhibitions this fall" Haying Almost Over Hijing is now ilinost ovei. and 'the farmers declare that the yield this, season has been tile largest for a good main icirs That wmcn was down during the storms, is not materially injuied, the onlj damage being the slight bleicbing that took place. large amount of hay Is being baled :his year, to toe shipped this fall and next spring.

Conditions at Taber Taber. July size up the crop Dlidition around Taber, the best state ment would be to say that north of the town the greatest crop on record will be cut, while to the south, which suffered from dry weather the yield will be about 60.-per.cent' There is practically no there a very large acreage o-f spring wheat, and flax and: barley. The weather could .not be better I or ripening, and every one is hoping for in early cutting. The district stretch- ing -'ID miles north of -the town was favored with frequent showers In the early summer and those capable of judging say that the crops simply could not look 'heller. The farmars south were not so fortunate, bin litions could 'bo a lot worse. There will he a big increase in the quantity. Fair at Seven Persons Seven Persons.

Chin Slow In Getting Rain C'bin, .l.uly comes within (bo belt 'east from Lulhbrldge which did not get the rain as early as wish- ed -for, and'some of the crops backward. The story ranges from a to 75 per cent, crop, and it is al very much the old story of good and poor fanning. The wirfter wheat came through all right and will go 25 bush els to the: acre, oats and flax are also: all right, 'but the spring wheat, if.i backward. These conditions cover quite an extensive area.

TJiere has not been a drawback of any kiut and the ripening period is in .fill: swing. To the east the wire worm and the Hessian fly did some damage and 70 to 75 per cent. Is the best es- timate. In the Stavely district there was at least 5 per cent, damage from the fly, while the wire worm did most damage out from Granum. The foot- hill country will have a great yield Of OKtS. In the South Couiitry Raymond, July district south of; Jiethbridge. is, perhaps, the In the 'eri'tifa province to harvest any great amount of grain Ibis season. A special, representative of -this papei has gone, over the lines of the C. P. R. south of Lethbr'idgeVand. has made en- quiry as to' the conditions of grain arid the prospects for an early har- vest. At Cardston it was found that the grain was still'in good growing condition, iind would not be harvested for at least ten days. Speaking with Arthur P-erry, the large grain grower and prize winner of -the southern town, the 'Herald learned that there would be at least 90 per. of the grain sown'in the entire' Ctirdston dis- trict'harvested this year. The hay crop has beon a heavy one., and the bulk of It will -be saved by tile end of the week. .Coming on to Raley, the press re- presentative found a splendid field of srain belonging to Dr., Robertson, .which in all probability would he har- vested about the end of this week. On the short branch line -to Woolford harvesting will he genera! by the end of next iweek. At Spring Coulee the concensus of opinion was that the middle of next week wbiild see a great number of Spring Coulee farmers in 'their fields. Fall wheat on the farm of Mr. Fred Pressiller it is anticipated will go '50 bushels to the acre, and will be harvested the end of next week: Mr. Pressiller has some 200 acres of this 'grain; Smith and Ober about GOG ac- res, and Eldridge Bros. 600 acres of fall wheat, and 600 acres of oats. The fall wheat on 'the Eldridge farm, it is thought, .will also go about 60 .bushels to the ncre. If so, this will prove a record crop for the district, and there ig every'anticipation that it will be harvested 'before any serious damage can come through -frost. At Welling Welling farmers report that the grain is ripening I very quickly, and they anticipate that there will be grain cut the middle of this week. By the end of the T. Heninger, Jr., king of farmers Hi the south coun- try, will have a number of binders at work, and next week will see the most of his fall 'grain cut. At Raymond this .paper's represent- ative had a conversation with several implement men, and they informed him that the fanners of the district ware anxious to get binders they had on order, set up and ready for work about Thursday or Friday. The middle of next week will find a good deal of grain in Raymond dis- trict bowing to the reaper, and by the end of the week, in all probability, the bulk of the fall wheat will he cut. On the ridge south of town wheat is splendid crop, and will yield an ab- undant harvest. The CoutU Branch At Coutts, Milk River and Warner harvesting has been in 'progress for some days. Speaking with a home- steader from the homoslead country of thuse places, he gave out the information that in this district much of the grain Is ripe, and will -be cut and shocked by the end of the week. At. Warner' the -crop if, exceptionally heavy, and between this point and New Dayton Is found perhaps the -best grain that, will be produced lu the province this season. New Dayton began harvesting on Monday.'
