Special 3 day _ _ __1 --1 p> had one good effect on some of the careless fanners, who are now more careful in their selection and in the preparation of their ground for seed. He is very..optimistic, and thinks this year will'excel all other seasons for bumper yields. Feels Crop is Assured Geo. Severance, manager of the JBonrnsteclt farms at Stirling, came in to the city today and is very lenthus-j jiastic over the prospects for a big! crop this year. The company have aj very large acreage under crop thisj spring, aibont 7000 acres in all. Ofj this 2800 acres is winter wheat and: 4200 acres spring crop, mostly spring, wheat, although they .have seeded a! fairly large area of oats and flax. Speaking- of the rain this morning, .Mr. Severance said to'the -Herald: "There is not the least doubt in my jmind now that a crop is assured. In {soil that was well prepared'I would jnot have been at all anxious if wej 'had not had any rain till June. The: jmoisture conditions are much better jtnan last spring. In fact they were {perfect. But this rain coming ;ts it 'does just when all the spring seeding is nearly finished relieves my mind of all doubt, and will supply all the mois- kure that, could possibly sbe needed. (There was a little damage done in some parts by the high wind a few, days ago, and some -people thought j 'tnat they would have to re-seed partj (of their winter wheat. When I MESJ in this morning I noticed these! j fields particularly, and they are allj ilooking as fine and as ever.} .'Thev may have been set back for aj few days as tae tips of tbe leaves were whipped off. but the moisture today! has revived them and no damage ever will result. j The winter wheat is starting out] very well this spring and this is one of the sure indications of a large yield, 'while tbe spring grains are coming j 'along as well as I ever saw in j speaking to Mr. Fairfieid of the Ex- perimental Farm, the Herald learned 'that the "amount of rain last night iwas aibout .2 but he said that jit was coming at such a time and un- der such weather conditions that it 'will do the most possible good. The on the farm are all looking fresh j land in excellent, condition, and are asj advanced as it is well for to be at this'time of the year. The Herald man was also talking to Mr. -Lathrop and lie too was very cheerful judging by the ibroad smile he wore. "Fine, he said: "T'd wear a bigger smile if I could. That ought to fbe enough." Around Warner McMillan, of Warner, was in the city yesterday and when about the crops in his district, said they were in excellent condition for season of the year. He has 300 acres in wheat that is in fine shape, shading the ground so that moisture coming: now retained as to do.the most good. 'Mr. McMillan is also seeding 400 acres to flax IMe spring, and is going to plant 15 acras of potatoes as he believes that one of the paying crops for Southern Alberta. He haa just returned from a trip through the east and says tho Dakotas are rather dry, not having had any moisture to amount to anything this spring yet. In Ontario the crops are -wall advansed and there plenty of moisture. Guelph -will loan the Independent Tire of Toronto. for 20 years, w a factory there.
