DELANY'S LIMITED PHONE 452. June crop is probably it month lute. As far as wheat Is concerned, the fall wheat will probably m.iturc siu'cessfully, but tlin odds against the spring wheat are j'vory heiivy. An unusually warm and frostless fall will, be necessary if the i spring wheat of this district is to .grade better than four.1 If this year's ii-rop reaches fifty per rent- of the j value of last year's crop It will do jvery well indeed. There has been a I great deal more raiu than was needed land the spring frosts lasted very I much longer than usual. The hay crop i is unquestionably a moni'ii late and ithe yield per acre is certainly not isoiug to bo more than fifty per cent .or last year's yield. A pessimist would say Fortunately the fanners-of this district are more and more be- coming convinced that while the grain crop and the hay crop are eminently welcome visitors, yet the coll crop and the calf crop are both more re- liable anrt more lucrative, and by the siime token the colt crops and the calf crops are very good the cream crop. The district is rapid- ly becoming a great producer of cream. The milk and cream from about 160 cows is handled by private enterprise at Cowley, and the exportable surplus, something like 3000 gallons of cream: a month, goes to Lethbridge and Cal- j gary. The proximinity of the mines of the Prow's Xest Pass gives Cowley j an enormous advantage over points i further east, and local enterprise has j certainly not overlooked that advnn- j tage. The westbound passenger train daily hauls from Cowley some 90 to 100 gallons of milk and cream to the miners' dinner table. All of which goes to prove that when they talk about crops in Cowley they refer to a whole lot more crops than the grain and hay variety. scuss Best Methods of Getting Rid of Weed 'Pest Fr.oyT PAGE) many questions Weeds and Sh-eep I plauded James McCaig attacks his subject asked.
