From a personal inspection ! through Lcavltt, Mt. View, Hill i Spring and fllenwood. one is surprised at the good stands of wheat, oats and barley are not so good. South and east in the Aetna. Kimball, Taylorvllle and Woolford districts, the wheat also looks well, but is hardly so Rood as west. The hay crop is everywhere much lighter than during the . past two years, both timothy and wild grasses. The hay harvest is going forward rapidly and another week will see it completed on all the small farms, big j outfits continuing longer. The best grain in the Hill Spring i district, possibly thai of Mr. H. Rus-sel Sloan is attributed to surface cultivation with the harrow after the ;;rain was well rooted. Crops in this locality look to be the best in the Cnrdston crop district. PICTURE BUTTE Picture Butte, July 2S.-Crops in this district are sadly in need of rain. Some of the wheat Is so far advanced as to need cutting In a few days. MAGRATH Mngrnth, July 28.-It Is wonderful how the grain is standing the long dry spell. The hot wind of the last few days has been very hard on it, but In many fields the heads are filling remarkably well and will no doubt give a fairly good yield. NEW DAVTON New Dayton. July 28.-It is Indeed surprising how, some of the crops are standing the dry weather. Summer-fallowing grain is still in the lead in this district. The cool nights seem to be a great benefit. Flax is looking good and seems to. stand the drouth well. The steam plowing outfit is still in operation on the Miami farm. Quite a number of acres are ready for seeding ia the spring as it is plain to be seen that early sown grain is best. TRAVER5 Traverse, July 2S.-Harvest will commence about the week of the fifth as the grain is ripening fast owing to the Intense heat. The past two days have had some prospects of rain, but still a high hot wind from the southwest and plenty of dust is blowing. We have not heard any com-plaintB of a scarcity of harvest help yet. Farmers are hauling out twine for which they are paying eighteen cents. CANADA WILL NEED 42,00(1 LABORERS Fan* Help Will Be Problem This Year, Is Report Winnipeg, July 28.-From present Indications, 42,000 harvest laborers �will be needed in Canada this year.

The different Krains are holding their own against the drought, hut undoubtedly would groatly benefit by immediate surface moisture. COALDALE Coaldale, July 30.-The crops have not all burned up yet, even if we have had no rain. All the grain which could be irrigated has had the water on it and shows the results to a remarkable degree. Grain on 'land in a good state of cultivation is holding on iu a manner almost beyond belief. But that on spring plowing, or which was gtubbied in has suffered
