Baird, of the grain commission firm of Baird Botterell, is in tlio city from Winnipeg, after having spent a week looking over the grain situation in different parts of the province. Alberta, he says, ap- pears to be ten days ahead of either Saskatchewan or Manitoba in its grain crop, and the fields look uni- formly good throughout the province very encouraging promise. While there is generally conceded to be a decrease of acreage in the three pro- vinces, this is less true in Alberta than of the other territories. Mani- toba und Saskatchewan will have a decrease of between IJi and 20 per cent in acreage, owing to the inability of farmers to get onto the land last fall to do their plowing, because the big crop occupied the fields so late. The three provinces will probably show a decrease of acres. 'More stubble has been planted to crop this year than ever before, and in this respect Alberta is worse than the other territories, although Mani- toba and Saskatchewan have the big acreage of 25 per cent sown on stub- ble. What may be the redeeming fea- Sixty Years ihe Standard DR: POWDffl Made from cream of tartar derived from grapes. NO ALUM ture of this undesirable condition is the very excellent quality of the seed being used and the good supply of moisture. Their has been no shortage of moisture all over the west, Mr. Baird avers, and from now on the satisfactory outcome of the crop will depend entirely on continued good weather. Bushel .Shortage The statement lias been made by students of the grain question that there will be a shortage of bushels iu America this year as com- pared with last season. Very impor- tant damage. 10 winter wheat is ac- knowledged in the central states, due to winter kill, insects and poor grow- ing season. The American northwest is in much the same condition as the Canadian northwest, with a reduction in acreage but good promise of crop. In reference to the price situation, Mr. Baird declared the price or wheat would undoubtedly be higher on new crop influences were it not for the weigfit.of old supply. The visible sup- ply in Canada and the States was barely less than it was a year ago, while the invisible supply, viz., that still in the hands of the farmers, was believed to be much greater. Transportation facilities at the sea- board were still very defective, having a tendency to hold the visible supply at a high figure by making the clear- ance of visible supplies to consuming markets difficult It was unwise, Mr. Baird said, to make any prophecy concerning the future conduct of prices, as there was no guarantee as to the behavior of the principal fac- tor, the war. Any. overtures for peace would naturally result in a :iecline. Considering the extent of the war and with its continuance, Mr, Uaird thought foodstuffs including wheat were not.high. The labor question had not aa yet become a real problem with the farm- ers, Mr. Baird declares. PRE-MIAL AGE Theory Based on Finding of Body in British Columbia Has Been Exploded theory, based upon the discovery of a human skeleton In earth beds alleged to be of grout age, chat man had been present on tho North American continent at a- much earlier period than had ever been sup- posed, lias been exploded by the re- sults oE a. special investigation con- ducted by olllcials of the geological survey, which are published In the annual report of that branch. Just Tho discovery of the ruman re- mains, which wus made near Savona, 13. C., caused a mild scientific sensa- tion. It was made the subject of a paper presented to the Royal Society of Canada at its meeting last year, tho claim then being; made that the ii: which the remains were found were of glacial age. If this claim had been established, It would have given evidence of the presence of man long years before it has been considered that anything in human form existed In North America, and would have upset many theories hitherto held on this subject. The results of investigation, how- ever, dispose of the claim of any very great, antiquity for the rfimainn dis- covered. C. W. Drysdale looked into tfie geology of the locality where the discovery was made, while F. H. S. Knowles, of the anthropological branch, examined the skeleton, Mr, Drysdale's conclusion is that "the al- luvial series at this section is clearly of recent and not glacial age." Mr. Knowles, from an examination of the skeleton found, although it is in a somewhat defective condition, has been able to deduce that it is that of an Indian woman, well on in years, probably about 5 feet in height, who suffered from chronic rheumatism, led an active mode of life in her earliar years, and was accustomed to rest in a squatting posture, as usual among primitive peoples. The verdict of this scientific cor- oner's inquest is that "the woman may lave been drowned in Kamloops lake and her body buried along with the normal accumulation of silts and gra vels on the lake bottom."

The local elevator capacity has been found to be very insufficient for the needs of the district, and a farmer's elevator will be a great boon this fall. There is undoubtedly a lot of water at the town well near to the depot, but it seems .very difficult to get at it. Next Sunday, being the first in the month, will be observed as missionary Sabbath, at the'morning service and Sabbath school. The optimism of the farmers after the rains of the past fortnight seems to bo unassailable. Each one to whom we speak is sure of a bumper crop, and one farmer west of town told us that he figures on a yield of fifty bushels of wheat to the acre on his land. The man with a grouch is a minus quantity these days. Consolidated School A meeting was held on Monday morning to arrange for the initial ;teps towards consolidation of the lo- cal school districts. Each district will be thoroughly canvassed, a committee being appointed for that purpose. Meanwhile information is being ga- thered from all available sources on every phase of the question, and cir- culars will be distributed among ihe taxpayers of each "district affected. The Nobleford Red Cross society acknowledges the -following articles which 'have been made by the work- ers in the outside districts: New- pyjama suits, 16 T 56 white handkerchiefs. 6 sheets, 8 surgical shirts, 1 pair socks. Total 89 articles. flannel shirts. 14 T bandages, 2 abdominal bandages, 1 pyjama coat, 6 personal .property bagsi Total 31 articles. White Lake, per Mrs. Burns-r-6 sheets, 5 pairs of nurses' sleeves, 2 personal property bags, 2 T bandages, 20 gingham hand-, kerchiefs. Total 35 articles. The Red Cross society desires to express its appreciation of tho work done by the ladies in these districts, and especially of the efforts of; Mrs J. Clark, Mrs. Gleason and Mrs. Bnrns, who have greatly assisted in organizing the work.
