The earth has literally been scoured for seeds and slioons that of themselves _ or by iiybridl/.aiion could be rendered of service to Cana-d.i in all branches of agricnliure. What Ijr. Saunders ba-.^ aacomplish-ed for wheat culture, of course, holds most intereaf for the lai'ger public The romance of .Manitoba No. I hard began in 1842, before experimental larnis were thought of. Ks chief source was the famous "Red Fife " introduced in I'pper Canada by a Scotch farmer named David Fife who received la handful of grains from a cargo ship ' ped direct from Uantzic, Austria, to Glasgow, and from ir. developed th)' "Red Fife" wheat. It has since been proved that it was of Galiclan origin. 'The handful of wlieat has been likened by an American writer, L. S. Brown f II, to the beans from which Jack grow his beanstalk, that formed the ladder lo the giant's gold. The chief service of IDr. Saunders aud his assocUt�fl in connection with the wheat of the Weal lias been In pushing Che wheat line northward by the development of ear ly ripening varieties. As onc paradox ical commentator has put It, he bas made the Canadian summer ten days longe-r. He ha.s asMuredly widened the field of settlement inca-lculably by the creation of grains ihat will be profit able aud productive in high latitudes Kvory industry Is filled with romance when one searches below the surface, and none more so than sclen liftc agriculiure.
