KnfGSTOV Riding Brceclies Specialist Three yetrt eqMricftee at H�mmoiid*�-'crland trail from tho headquarters of the Yukon to tiie ohier portion of the Dominion long has been in mind. It is founded largely on the i�tea that an nU-Canadian route may any time '.a found of great value, if hot a ncces-Nl-ty in 9, military way, if not for other reason, and on tho pivsuni|>t-ion that such a route will prove un inducement for pioneers to penetrate the land in sotu-ch of its riehes, later leading the way for settlement, wagon roads and railways.

PfotpMlui on lapllMiien Tho August numiber of bonds and mortgages contjains an interesting contribution on the work of conquering the deserts of Eastern Colorado. The writer is .I.L. Donahue, president of the Scientific Farming Association, and an authority on agricultural tolAcs. According to his stattv inents, land that five years ago sold at $1.50 an aero is now productivt undheld at �10 or more without irrigation e^ials. It has been re claimed by a system of intense cul Ct vat ion that conserves the soil mols ture and insures bounteous harvests of cereals, grasses and vegetable:^ .Uany new orchards are coming into bearing and,the future tor that omv parched desert seems to be filled m(tb brilliant anticipations. A few years ago hundreds of home-seekers located on claims in Eastern Colorado and attempted to carve farms Irom the desert. They h.-xd no irrigation ditches and could itot secure water from other sources and wvro soon compeiled' to abandonthnir lands. For a time tho country was practically deserted. No offers were nuuk; for the broad acres of diy field.s. Men could not entertain the idea of going ujMn the land anil sulTerihg defeat jvar after year. Out a deliverer came to the people. it was an advocate of dry farming. I'.x-periments donwnstrated that by keeping a soil mulch on the suri'ac� the stored rainfall could be rit.iiiiur�(l over by trained agents to gel plants and seeds that would withstand the deserts of i the West. The dcpiartnient introduced the cereals from Russia and other foreign countries. Packings were sent out to dilleroirt sections and the farmers requested to give the plants fair trials. Today durum wheat is one ol the great commercial crops of sewral slates. It is followed by Swetlish oats, bromo grass and other semi-arid products. Parma are being made in out-of-the-way places and homes of weaHh are being established on tracts once given over to the rep -tiles and animals of the desert. Seattle 1'ost-Intelligencer. year the estimate is 90,250,000 bushels in the throe Provinces, or an average of 19 bushels per acre on i.ii ttcreatfe of 4.750,000. Up to ;l;e first of last �-eck everything pointo.l to a 20 l)ushel awrage, but since then the hot wimi from the south has caused some depreciation,, how much or how little only the thn^sh -ing returns can teJI, The increase in acreage is estimated at 18 per cent. This is a const-r-vative estimate; for while the in -cren.se in Manitoba is necc.ssaril.v small, ami is olYsct by 'tlio l.md sown to barley, on the other hanil the inci-oase in Saskatchewan onJ .\lborta runs all the vay from io to J00 per cent., so that an increase of 750,000 acres for the year is to lie regardeil as within the nwrk. The teiwlency has been to keep the aver-ago yiebl up at the exjiensc of the increa.se in acreage. For the pa.st three years the Free Press has made tho most nccurat;' estim.ite of the crop published, and hopes to l)e able on Aug. 31, 1907. to point bark to the ostimatQ published today as the moat accunitu estimate of tho crop of lOOfl.

The minutes of.the Alberta .on (erence of the Methodist Church has just been published and conLiins some very interesting data Avith respect to the progress of tho work during the past j-car. A few particulars from the statistical report are heroin reproduced. Present membership 5,908, new niemU-rs rcceive5-000. There aro 38 parsonages. Average salary of the ministers on circuits *92-t, increase $30. Average salary of tho niinisturs on mission fields S650, increase $30. Average salary of young mon cn mission fields $343; increase 941. It is interesting to note as throwing a sidelight on the progress of the province as well as on thegrow-th of the church, that about five years ago the Methodist church had only one minister traversing tUo whole eountry between Calgary and Macleod. Today out of a part tf that territory a new district has been formed, comprising 11 fields. At tho financial district msctiag held in Nnnton it was found that five ol these fields are self-.upport-ing, three are nearly so, and t il, a^ith one exception, record, marked progre.'fs, with, every prospect of more than fulfilling their viromise during the church year. ContributeO0, increase 931,431. Amounts contributed per Kteniher for all purpose*-918.Uj, iicotise 93.12. Sixteon new churches have boon built during tho year and ton ��'new parsonages.
