The farmers around Mogrnth have evidently decided to make theirfnrms do something. Land that two years ago yielded about fmir bushels to the acre been use of poor cultivation, is this year yielding from thirty to sixty bushols per acre.

For weeks we have Iteen reading of storms of all sorts caus -ing damage in the various parts of the continent Hut the region hitherto immume had to lake its turn. On Tuesday rail began to fall, turn ing to snow ubout l\vo o'clock in the afternoon, and for the greater part of the time since, rain and snow have lieen falling. The snow was very wet and heavy and liecause of this has done considerable damage to tlv standing crops of which fortunately there were very few in this district. The fall wheat was alt cut and stook ed ami a great deal of it threshed. The greater portion of the spring wheat also was cut so that the loss in this district will not I hi heavy. F. W. Cusman of Spring Coulee on Mon day said that seventy-five per cent of the crops in that district was already cut and stuoked. Similar re-ports come from the other surrounding districts. The storm will cause no injury to t h-- cut grain. The rip -ened standing main will sulTer some but the given urain Hill suffer most. The storm is widespread, the wires were down betv\�vu Medicine Hat ami \Vinni|h'g and north of us snow has north as Wetas-and I^ncomhc from eight to ten inches has fallen. In the city, the heavy snow broke many of the Kluctric Company's wires so that electric light and pinv-1 er were out ot business. Among others the Herald sufiVred in not having power to run lis presses or Monokine all day yesterday. The heavy foliage of the clty'strees caught a givat deal of snow and considerable datuagi* was done, the elm trevs standing 'lie strain the best of any. The farmers who have their wheat in ami their fall wheat sown, per -sonally, have no objection to the storms, as it is the best possible thing that could come for the winter wheat. 'Hiis storm emphasizes the fact very siiongl,v that winter wheat is the crop for this country. Taken on the whole the damage done in this district will not l>egivnt j although some whose crops of spring wheat and oats were late will sus- � tain considerable loss. A. S. Bowman and wife of llellevue Farm, Tuber, were ih the city on Tuesday- Sergt. noldorson has resigned from the n.N.W.M.F force.
