Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta SliPTCMBEK 14. ass nly Slight Damage to Grain- Large Percentage of Cut- ting Finished MARK THE FIELDS jnportant Suggestion bv Supt. Fairfielcl for Farmers To Heed Austria and Germany Decide To Send Forward Reinforcements ALLIED NATIONS ARE MAKING PROGRESS T1D3 "ELEPHANT" OF THE CLOUDS. C'UIUOUS FREAK OF FRENCH KALLOON Winnipeg, Sept. frosts visited :many points In Alberta last night and as much as eight degrees was from a num- ber of Saskatchewan districts. Russetl, with two degrees, wss the oniy point In Manitoba to rs- pot-L frust, but n (.old drizzling rain put a stop to harvesting op- erations and prospects are Tor a sharp frost toniflht. The crop, however, is everywhere beyond frost damage, practically all wheat biitng now safe in the stack or stook. Threshing in .Manitoba is giving encouraging results as compared with recent estimates. One Degree Here Jack Frost "blew in" from the north st night, making his first appear- nce of the year in the Lethbridge istriet. He didn't stay long here, nly one degree below freezing point icing 'registered at the Experimental but he lingered' longer in some tarts of th south closer 111 to the footj Reports from Cardston and Mncher.

Unfortunately" n Tuesday interfered with cutting, nd thousands of acres which might lave been in the stook were standing However, despite the fact that the rost did some damage, the fact that held off as long as it did meant lundreds of -thousands of dollars to Southern Alberta. Many districts eport cutting completed except in few isolated fields.. At least 6c per cent of the wheat all over the otith is cut, and much of what is landing is very. ripe and the frost vould not do much damage.-. Late oats would be damaged to some ex- cut while, late wheat will be knock- ed from one to three grades. Com- parlngvthe later, districts, however, with the same' districts iast year, Septen'bn 12th brought them ten or twelve degrees of frost with several inches of snow to delay cut- ting it will be seen that they are more favored this year than last. This particularly applies to the Pincher Seek.. Cardston and other districts closer, to the mountains. Weather Fine Again The weatherman says frost for to- night. But the today is j'ust what the would order, clear sky and bright sun. Cutting has resumed.all over thJ south and by Saturday night, there will be very little grain left standing. The weath- er seems to have, cleared for the time being ana farmeis are now beginning Lo turn their attention toward thresh- ing operations. Mark Off the Crop In conversation with Superinten dent fr airfield of the Experimental farm he suggested that farmers who have not yet cut all of their si am should mark the line between the wheat cut piior to the frost and that cut and after so that- when threshing they can keep the wheat separate No matter how little the frost he says It has some effect on the grade, from one to three grades, ind with little No 1 wheat In Amei- ica this year, it js likely to command R high prennum lower grades. The trouble'; therefore in separating the frosted horn the unfrosted per lions of a field will be well repaid when it comes to marketing the crop. Eight Degrees at Cardston taidston, Sept evening Jas clear and cold The frost so much dreaded hit us last night and with some as the mercury In the government thermometer kept here went down to 24 degrees'r, giv ing us 8 degrees of frost This morn ing is clear and harvesting operations will still be in full swing bj mid HEAVY VOTE AT FERNIE London, Sept.

"I had said Supt. Fairfield. "that the yield would be from CO to 70 per cent, of last year's on plots of the same kind of grain grown under the same conditions of seeding and cultivation But the figures so far show that the yields are about SO to 85 per cent, of last year's. Of course, it is early yet to compare the crops over the whole district, but this is a pretty fair index of the yields. The grain has a good plump berry and is a fine sample. Some ot the vields were within a fraction of what they were last year, while others were considerably below. But the thing is that the average Is nearly 20 per cent, better than I had estimated."
