R. L. Bordeii, who had as his hosts the Conservative as- sociation of Ottawa. The magnifi- cent dining hall of the hotel was till- ed with nearly five hundred guests. The Prime Minister was afforded a striking indication of the great es teem ill which he is held hy his party] in the capital, and of their fidelity to himself and his government. "What shall I said Mr. Bor- den, at the outset, "to a welcome such as .this? I should he less than human if i did not appreciate It from the hot- torn of my heart. From the time v.'e were awakened at, Rimduski hy 'the fireworks until we arrived at Ottawa this evening the welcome has been lore than any man could desire, and all that any man can expect. Further, let me say that most sincerely did I appreciate the welcom-e hy our fel- low citizens of the province of Que- bec. "I have not come to make' in any sense a party speech." SEii-d Mr. Bor- deu. "I deeply appreciate the in- tensely kind welcome given me hy the conservatives of this city and country, hut I recognize the same time that .Liberals as well -as Con servatives joined in the cordiality ol this welcome. I fully believe the rank and file of the Liberal plirty are just as earnest and loyal and patriotic foi the welfare of cur Dominion as any citizens of the country. As Cauad ians we are all working for a commoi good of all Canadians. Le me- say that on the one hand we were received with every possible frank ness and courtesy. We had the priv ilege with other minir.tcrs of th Crown of being with the statesmen of the old land. We were admitted ti the very Arcana imperial, yes, hit the very secrets of the Empire. "W1 discussed questions of the greatest in portance, and it is not, for me to mak any special announcsnient' that already given to the press.

Graceful compliment was paid the guest of honor to Sir Gepr Reid, Australian High Commission to London. Sir George responded briefly, eulogizing the esteem -in which he is held in London.

"Spring wheat will better than Flax ay or may not he a crop, according weather conditions during the next ro weeks. "Some of the winter wheat will go I bushels to the acre. Some will go s low as 15.

They have already shipped several ars, Mr, Stover considers the price cry good at present, although futures how a falling oft, October wheat be- iig several cents lower than cash n-ices. The heavy .crop across the Ira is tending to keep pricey low. Better Farming Methods Speaking of his experience during he past three years, Mr. Stover sold .e 'was introducing a new system ,nf mndliiig the land, mere slipshod for them. After this he will endeavor to crop half of each farm each year, summcrfallowing the rest. Dne-reason for this change is that the summer fallowed land, sown to "win- ter wheat, is this year yielding 30 bushels of. No. 1 wheat to the acre. A Contrast As a contrast, he gives an experi- ence in farming by half methods. Last ear they sowed about 2.00 acres to flax, rushing in at the last moment It never came up till June 26. It was green when the frost came, and no worth cutting. They let it lie. turn NORTH WARD it off this spring, and stubbled ii spring wheat. It is yielding only 3o bushels to the acre. Had that land been summer fallow ed last year, when it was found to b1 too late for serving, and sffwn to winter wheat, they would have ed the cost of seeding to flax in 1911 and likely got a 30 crop wheat this year, instead of 15 bushels Good farming nays. The company is yoing into mixe farming more extensively in a year o two, when the land is developed. Hog cattle and slicep will be stocked o each farm. Winter wheat is being sown and the .company will put in about L 200 acres this year. This will be o summer fallow. Conditions for see< ing are ideal .since Sunday's rain..
