Johnston of the Bayfield farm has commenced cutting his hay which, is in tip-top condition. W. H. Harvey Farm across the river has brome grass and rye grass just heading out and nearly ready to cut. Mr. Har- vey is greatly pleased with his alf- alfa every grain of which he believes grew. He says that he will have alfalfa at the rair'this year that will compete with that raised on. the irri- gated land, Geo. B. Snapp the large Warner farmer, says that the crops around Warner could not be better. His wheat stands as high as his knees and is in the shot blade. Nothing can prevent a bumper crop. At Grassey Lake the grain is in fine shape. The Herald was shown spring wheat pulled on Sunday near that town, which stands twenty-two Inches. From no one has come any com- plaint of too much rain. 2Tcne of the crop is under water. In fact altogether too much I indeed it is not the pur- pose Of the writer to enter into the details of the ministerial session in dealing with transfers, superannuated, ministers and funds connected withrea'hed such a pitch that ifc must be and which will go down to history as one of the moil Christiike acts in the history of the Church in Canada. One of the ministers, Rev. A. Earner, who has charge of our Indian insti- tutes found his young men growing insubordination minister of agriculture. Mr. Carnegie there is very little land covered with j them or with their enquiry into the character and work of the probation ers. The organization of committees on the arrival oi the laymen is also rou- tine work and need not be elaborated here. One notable feature of the confer- ence was the large contingent of dig- nitaries from the general board of missions and other connexional in- stitutions. There were Dr. Chown, of Temperance and Moral Reform fame; James Allen, M.A., general secretary for Home Missions-, Dr. Woodsworth, Senior Supt. of Missions; T. Egerton Shore, as representative of the For- eign Mission work; Dr. Stewart; of Wesley College, and Rev. Fortune of the Temperance and Moral Reform League of Alberta. Dr. Briggs was present, hearty and happy as ever, with his perennial humor, and his Book Room report. Dr. Chown gave an outline of what had been done in his departemnt of the House was to pass supply. Mr. Borden said that while it was a matter for the Government- to de- cide, he did not think that the intro- duction of the Civil Service bill would delay supply. A discussion of the militia esti- mates was entered upon with the un- derstanding that one item of 000 should stand and that full lati- tude would be allowed for discussion in that- connection on any question in connection with the department. This suggestion was made by the minister of militia with the object of facilitat- ing the passage of supply and was ac- cepted by the Opposition.

MIXED FARMING IN THIS COUNTRY Advice of a Pioneer Farmer of Australia.- Who is in the City on a Trip Around the World (From Friday's Daily.) were astonished at the hold the tem- perance movement is gaining on the general public. Then in Ms master- ful fashion he emphasized the neces- sity for concerted and sustained ac- tion all along the line of temperance, clean politics and social purity. Eev. James Allen, the secretary of Home Missions who has been making i a visit to nearl al! the districts in Alberta gave a strong clear statement subdued at any cost. After trying all manner of persua- sion, Mr. Earner resorted to corporal punishment, but corporal punishment to an Indian proved as it has in so many other cases, an absolute failure. The trouble continued and continued to grow. Mr. Earner was much dis- tressed. Finally one morning he called all the young braves into the school room, at about five o'clock. Pointing out to them what they were doing, and what was likely to come oi it, he told them of his resolve never again to inflict corporal punishment on them, but, at the same time he told them plainly that some one, some person must suffer punishment. Then baring his own back he handed the lash to one of the young Indians and literally forced that as- tonished worthy to apply the cruel instrument of torture to the bare back of his teacher. Then with his own scarred and blistered body as an ob- ject lesson he preached to them the atonement of Jesus Christ, and its to them. It is needless to say that the underwent an. immediate transformation, such is the power of all. conquering love. When Mr. Earner appeared before the conference and gave his quiet talk on the subject of prayer, you may be sure that his words were lis- tened to, and as might be expected he touched depths of Christian ex- perience, which few others appeared rainfall during the past six years. He was engaged in making up the average's. "Quo reumrkable thing I have noticed'regal-ding the ho said, "is the fact that you get the rain just when you need it." The Herald, al'tci- having this short talk with Mr. Collins, felt that he is a man of sound judgment on agri- cultural matters auu impressed his comprehensive knowledge of condi- tions all over the continent. The strong personality of the man and his powers of expression render him- just the man a reporter likes to in terview. We feel that the "Agricul- turist" is bound to be an'up to date publication. P. V. Collins, editor and manager of the "A'orth Western Agriculturist" a live farmer's magazine, published at Minneapolis, spent a few days in tho city last week. Mr. Collins is on his lirst visit to Alberta aud is making the trip with the object in view of preparing a series of articles for his paper. These articles will do much to create a correct impression of Southern Alberta among the peo- ple of t.ho Northern States. Ag- riculturist has a very large circula- tion and Mr. Collins is delighted with what he has learned regarding the country SQ we feel assured that his investigations, when made public, will result in much good to the coun try and particularly to this district.

To The Herald Mr. Collins express- ed himself as surprised and pleased with what he has seen in this dis-' trict- The conditions favorable to successful farming far exceed his ex- pectations. He has 'talked with a number of farmers in this vicinity and is convinced that this is first class wheat growing and general farm Provmce where be the most favorable if the season must even fair crops are to be expected." How do you like it? Has Mr. Harcourt for- gotten that Mr. Campbell could not cross the streams when he was one year ago and everywhere it was raining like "all sixty" in the south? Of course we are thankful to have Mr. Campbell to come and lecture to us but we would like the Deputy Minister to wake up to the fact that Collins was struck with the! modesty of the statements made re- i garding the country by the actual; this is not even a semi-arid region down here and that during this month settlers. he! had heard that the wheat was seven- to raise "iair crops" indeed.
