They report that the harvest will be fully a month earlier this year than last season. However, judging by whsft.cun be seen from the train the spring grain is not as far advanced as it is farther south. Winter wheat is rapidly growing in favor.

FINE PROSPECTS AT CLARESHOLM Prof. Campbell's System of Farming Should Be Called Scientific Washington, June upon receiving news of the nomina- tion of Secretary Taft the presi- dency, President Roosevelt said: "I feel that the country is indeed to be congratulated upon The nomination of Taft. I have known him intimately for many years and I have a peculiar feeling for him because throughout that time we have worked for the same object .with the, .same purpose and ideals. I do not- believe there can be in the whole country a man so well fitted to be. president. He is not only absolutely fearless, absolute- ly disinterested and upright, but he has the widest acquaintance with the nations. He would be as ernphatical ly president of the plain people Lincoln, yet not Lincoln himself would be freer from the least taint of deruu gogery, the least tendency to arouse or appeal to class hatrid of any kind He has a peculiar and intimate know ledge of and sympathy with the head of all Europe, of farmer, of tli Farmers Very Optimistic Postponement of Lethbridge Races A Roosevelt Victory London, June news of Secretary Tail's nomination for the Claresholm, June farmers in this vicinity are not worrying ab- out the crops this year.

Without, exception every farmer in the district is very optimistic regarding I ho am omit of grain he will have to tuke ti the elevator this fall. It is common to Western town presidency, was too late for editorial comment in the morninb papers with the exception of the Times. which says: "It is the greatest and most striking of all Roosevelt's victories, By the unflinching exertions of his personal Roosevelt de ieated the undoubted will of the Re- publican party and what is hardly less certain, the will of the American people. He has chosen to sacrifice his personal ambition to his sense of duty as a citien. It is a noble act of self abnegation worthy of the first magistrate of a people bred in respect of the law and veneration for its spir- it." THE CITIZENS CELEBRATION-AT GRANUM Granum held its 1st of July cele- bration yesterday. The people did hot want to clash with the fair at Cal- gary. A big list of sports was pulled off. Macleod baseball team won from Granum 15 to 6. The football match between the two towns was well contested, no score being made. On Wednesday night two young fellows, Joe Little and "Kid" Carr took possession of the lawn and ver- andah of C. G. K.

He hasn't seen mything bettor in the course of his travels. He says he had to come here to get out of the floods. In five weeks he has been travelling in floods from Texas to the boundary line where they have had the worst Hoods for many years. Prof. Campbell expressed sorrow hat his system of farming had ever jeen called farming." It is a nisnomer as it is scientific farming, as valuable for wet countries as for dry. Speaking of results of his sys- tem, he said that the highest wheat average Iowa ever had was 14 3-4-bu- shels. By scientific funning be rais- ed seventy and thought he was doing very well, but, "I come up here and find you felows raising fifty, sixty and sixty five bushels with no system and without half trying. I wonder what in the mischief you could do if you farmed properly. There is something about this country that makes it pro- duce excellent crops of wheat but I cannot make out what it is. There is .something in the climatic conditions that makes this a great wheat coun- try."
