FORBES, Registrar. cessitics of a system of marketing in such a way as to allow the crop to market as it is needed, and not all thrown on to the market at once, as has heretofore been the case. "Gut in regard to the big yield; There is 110 question but WE have a wonderful'crop, I doubt if any coun- hired help, some by exchanging labor with neighbors, etc. These farmers are apt to fin'I that they have acted wisely before the season is "One thing, however, is sure, Southern Alberta has shown what she can do in producing a crop when slio lias ;i chance." Dunham says that he recently shipped in a nice hunch of stock cat- tle which he bought through the stock department of the Co-Operative Elevator Co. at Caigaiy. This T. AND L. COUNCIL'S POSITION To the Editor of The Herald: wish you would insert Uie following' in some future issue. attention of the Trades and Labor Council has been called to an article in a late issue of your paper. The inference has been drawn from article that the Council had taken ac-., tion in its relationship to the Alberta Federation of Labor. This is a mis take. No action could be taken, ir fact, we were not in session, to take Mr. Dunham's iirst purchase of stock-i action. The article ia misleading. through the United Fanners, and he yet no vote has been taken, and the re'lationiahip remains as before. Anything appearing in the press highly pleased with his purchase. NANTON VMAN BADLY INJURED Nantou. A1U., Oct Le- c'iair, son of A. T. Leclair, of Nanton, was so badly hurt in an automobile try ever had a better one. We arc smash today that he is likely to lose approaching the first of November J his life, with hardly more than 25 per cent. of the crop' threshed. The question is how best to save the crop. It is now evident that much of it must go into the winter unthreshed. It is true that we are fortunate in having dry, open winter that do the least pos- sible damage to the crop, and it is true that we have no rats or other rodents that destroy the crop (lur- ing the winter, and it is also true that we often have good thresh- ing weather durintr the winter. Yet with all of these things in our favor the question of how to best save the big crop is. a vital one. Some farm- ers have bought small outfits for their own use, but they have goner- ally found that the capacity of these machines are not as great'as usually represented. It is likely, however, that more threshing will be done this way in the future. The ordinary business man says, why not stack A very plausible question. But, with labor .scarce and very high, with com- petent stackers almost unobtainable, with a thousand other things requir- ing all a farmer's time and energy, the question of stacking any large proportion of the crop is out of question. However, if a man can pos- sibly stack all or a part of his crop it" would certainly be wise to do so. The days are fast growing short, soon thf cold weather will be Here, it will be difficult to keep threshing gangs together. When those days coino the man with grain stacked will be in much better shape to get it, thrcshrd than.his neighbor, who must thresh out of the shock. Again snow will often prevent threshing from the shock when threshing from the stack- is entirely feasible. And again, grain that is stacked will usually grade higher, especially late in the season than grain. Then, there is the advantage of haying the field open for plowing, pastu're, etc. So if it is possible to stack it is certainly wise to do so. I am glad to iioticc that some Ad. No. farmers are.., stacking. Some with ficially will have tbe lecretary'i name attached. The Councl cannot' be1 held responsible for what appears in the press from the pen of a private individual or delegate. Yours truly, J- M. RITCHIE, Pres., T. L. C.
