The reporter In- terviewed several ol tlie business men and from them he got an assurance that as yet there was 'nothing to fear In the -way of immediate. Injury to crops, and that unless very warm winds 'should blow during -the next two weeks, all tbe district go without rain for a iong time. Satur- day and Sunday were 'very hot days, and brought with them a very drying experience. In the latter part of last week the Herald had an Interview with several farmers of the district, and with the exception of one or two no complaints were made, regarding the condition of the growing grain. Indications point to the new Stirling Weyburn line, which 'will be built east from Stirling. twenty-five or fifty miles during the coming summer, hav- ing an immense crop to handle this fall.

EXCLUSIVE LISTING BY R. V. Gibbons Co., "ft? Stirling is not in any sense suffering yet. They were not as familiar with conditions as the farmers whom tbe IJerald had interviewed, but said that they believed that the district along their line would, be able to go for a couple of weeks yet without mols ture. They reported, having seen a great deal of late sowing as' they drove back and forth from' thi work, but that no unsatisfactory re- ports had as yet come to them. Wilion Will Stand Two Weeks Dr.: Keillor, ol Raymond, who h recently bought a section of land at Wilson, and hna this year 330 acres seeded to barley, reported to the Her- ald that he was not fearing, drouth for two weeks. Ills 'barley was in and is 'well rooted and shows an exceedingly healthy growth. He reports also that other crops in the vicinity of Wilson are not, showing any indications of change 'of color. He believed that unless something un- forseen happens the district will stand two weeks of the severest drouth The doctor is optimistic of a good year at Wilson.

At Spring Coulee, Hagrath and Welling" ;there is sufficient moisture to keep the grain growing till the danger period is, past. Cardston Yield Will be Large In an Interview with Arthur Perry, the grain specialist of Cardston, the Herald's representative learned from 'him that in south of Lethbridge, at Cardeton moisture was the most abundant. He told of very strong crops which are now growing and made special of the fact that they were earlier- this year than ast, and would be har- vested long, before the frost could possibly injure them. Fall wheat will perhaps not have quite as important a place in the grain yield of the south- ern town area this season he fact thaMast fall not as much work had been done as was. antici- pated. Threshing was for a time In- terrupted, and it was not possible ,-to clear the fields for, the 'Tall; which the farmers wished to do. Not- withstanding this drawback, the area, eeded to grain this year will far sxceed that .of last pear.

Mr, fleathenshaw has foimsel this season 2100 acres of grain, and is in a position to speak with author- ity on the conditions. "We have al the .moisture we said Mr .Heathershaw, as I know there is no damage to any part of the district." He put the "limit at between two and three weeks as a safe "period over which the drouth might extend. A recent printed re port from the Herald -correspondent at Magrach bears out these state- ments, jiii'd sizing up the whole situa- tion, it says that the crops are grow- ing splendidly, worms nor.drouth are having any baneful effect. Garden truck roots are making splendid progress, .as is also smaller fruit, the bushes being borne down with currants and berries in the stages of formation., It has been many years since the smaller fruits looked so promising as they do estimate of conditions has been pro- cured.

Welling Satisfied The Herald's southern representa- tive called up on the telephone week several farmers, an< they all reported that their district was safe for a considerable length of time. ,Thc irrigation system of the Alberta Hallway and Irrigation Com pany passed'through this district, and water is not used for grain crops. A good deal of the alfalfa grass and root crop has ibeeh irrigated, fcut Welling ig on a par with other dry farming districts in the matter of grain growing.
