That, dou(>tiess. woulrt be anij average of sotnelhiug over eight cents' a bushel, probably about nine cents a: bushel. But with a cron of 100,000,000' bushels of wheat it would make a dit-1 j ference to the people of Western Ca-i r.adn of between $S,ony,ouO and 19,000,-000 every year. It is possible that the difference would not be as great as lliat. but reciprority is bound to make, a difference of lulllions to the grain, (�^rowers of Canada.
