Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LiTHMIPOI. AtiiRTA, NOVEMBER -23, IfM. Always Leaders Hand tailored garments, ready to try on, yet so coo- alterations can be made quickly and accurately, were originated withFit-Refooh. The system of training tailors to become perfect in making an individual part of a garment, was introduced into Canada by Fit-Reform. Styles which easily supplant the efforts of the best custom tailors are created by Fit-Reform. The protection to purchasers of guaranteeing satisfaction or money back, was original with Fit- Reform. 83 ALBERTA BEATS OTHER PROVINCES Color, Ffavor, Fragrance are the strong points of McKELVIE McGUIRE Sole Agents for Lethbrkfce.

WHITE DEER AND BLACK FOX Two Very Rare Animals Kilted by Picton Hunters Picton, Nov. unusu- al in the animal kingdom has just been killed by Prince Edward hunt- ers and brought home. Tt is a deer pure white in save for two black spots back of its cars, the animal is a fine looking stag and weighs about two hundred pounds. It has a magnificent pair of antlers. The hunters were reticent as to which mem.ber of the camp captured this very unusual species, but it is un- derstood that Mr. Grant Sprague of Big Island was the lucky shot. The animal was found in the northern, part of Hastings or Lennox and Ad dington. Another unusual kill. made by one of the hunters was a. black fox, now a very raro animal, whose skin is very valuable. Remember the farewell dance at the Bijou on Wednesday next, Nov. 25th.

Retards aid EiisM ti The ipfrg Safe itm eureka theatre Next Door to Herald Office Edmonton, Nov. a com- plete estimate of the output of this year's crop for the province is not j yet available the Department of Ag- riculture has compiled tiie following partial estimate based on reports of the crop correspondents through the province after threshing operations had been under way and on us much information as could LKJ secured from tbo threshers themselves. The esti- mate will Kcrvo to show in some de- gree what quantity of grain has been harvested this year and what the railways will be called upon to move in the course of the next few months. It is worthy of note that the aver- age yield per acre in Alberta exceeds that of either Manitoba or Saslcatche wan. It would appear that the acreage devoted to spring wheat was not quite so lanre as the estimate made in June, nor is the yield proving quite as high as was intimated early in. July. It is estimated there were acres of spring wheat and that the yield will be bu- shels, or an average of 18.41 bushels per acre. Beet Crop on Record The present estimate shows that the acreage of winter wheat harvest- ed is nearly acren over the July estimate, that is acres, giving a yield of bushels, or au avenge yield of 22.98 bushels Iicr but the general average of the province is greatly reduced by other districts not showing such high averages. Individual yields of winter wheat show that where the land was proper ly cultivated probably the highest yields ever obtained in the province were obtained this year. Numerous instances show that over GO bushels per acre have been obtained. This ority shows what can be done by pro- per methods of cultivation and brings out in striking contrast the low yields where poor methods of cultiva- tion prevail. Oats .Show Low Average estimated acreage is 400, 702, with a yield of bush- els or an average yield of 30.09 bu- shels per acre. The yield in a num- ber of districts was materially re- duced thp-.'ugh continuedtVain and lat er unfavorable weather, so that iii some portions of the province the yield of oats is not nearly up to the average. Other districts again re- port one of the best crops of oats grown in. many years. estimated acreage is with a total yield of 065 bushels, or an average of 19.73 bushels per acre, while the average for thfc-jwovinec for the ten years has been in the neighborhood of 27 bush- els per acre. It will thus be seen that this year has been a decided off one for barley. season has proved an un favorable one for flux, the estimate being 8046 acres of flax with a tota yield of 62.983 bushels, or an aver age of 7.82 per. acre. This is the lowest estimate ever made for flax in province. Not Up to Expectations I Th? yield of grain in 1908, despite the most excellent prospects in the early summer, -has not given any- thing like as favorable an out-turn as was fondlj- hoped in view of the unfortunate loss of crop of the pre- vious season. The only exception to this general statement is that of win- ter wheat, which this year has given the best crop on record.
