SPRING WHEAT HAS FIRST PLACE The figures for 1907 also shcrw that spring wheat and oats are the staple crops in the district, and it 'is likely that the predominance of these grains continue for some years at least. Winter wheat grows well, and the average yield of 35.48 bushels is a gc-'Od advertisement for it. But the spring grain involves less risk, and the ordinary fanner wJH be satisfied with the returns, which they bring. The disadvantage of winter wheat is that it must be sown in August, and about that time the harvest of the spring grains is sufficient to engage man. If a man were content to de- vote practically nil his enirgies, as is done in some instances, to winter are Most of once, but the effect of their settlement is shown in the rapid growth of several towns and villages south of this city. Com- munities which consisted of a few- shacks, a couple of years ago are now pretentious villages, bustling with activity, and full of promise for the years that are to cora'e. The movement is likely to con- tinue for some time yet this year, by next fall thousands of new Canadians will have comfort- able homes in the fertile domains of Southern Alberta, all of which means much to Lethbridge.
