One unfavorable factor early -in he season was wind _ which cut grain and caused a ditional rains must come to carry the present crop growth through to maturity. Farmers are all busy with their summerfallow. The vegetable gardens look oroniising. RETLAW our Jlay report when conditions were most discour- aging, the croo outlook in this dis- trict has been." much improved. The recent rain although not as bounti- ful as elsewhere, "was sufficient to benefit the stowing crons and the pasture land. Some wheat fields that suffered from the drought and lush winds had to be re-seeded. Acrease sown to coarse grains for feed are looking promising. Fall is heading and if v.-eather con- ditions are right trill likely make a good yield. Fall vvheat is also mak- ing a" good growth. The weather has turned warm and rams will be neede-i oeriotiicaliv to carrv the crons to maturity. Some i pests, cutworms and wireworms, have been reocrted but not m alarming numbers. COMMERCE entire out- look has changed since the last crop report. Now the whole coun- trvside "is a .picture vvith varying shades of green. The abundant j moisture and then the warm wea- ther have combined to make ideal growing conditions. There is no water running into Park Lake and there is practically no call for irri- gation water. Alfalfa is good and having will start in a couple of weeks. Crops have all been seeded and earlr wheat is from 10 to 12 WHEN a bereaved fccniiy is left without income, someone must find the means of paying for food, clothing- and shelter.
