The expcditiqn sent into Kuban, the Sea of Asov, by General Wrangel, seems to be a failure, both from "a military and a political view. (By 3 Staff Reporter.) CARDSTON, Sept. hundred silos will go up In thb district in said S. W. Low of tbe Canitton Cream- ery to the Herald today. Silo filling Is the order of the day here. Eight new silos have been constructed this year and being filled with sunflow- ers grown on dry land. The crop it averaging 20 tons to the acre of perfect feed. The principal trouble this fall time. Only a couple of cutting ma- chines for sllaging and blowing the sunflowers into the silos have been provided. These have come through the U. F. A. organization, and. will have to do tbe rounds wherever farmers have had confidence to go ahead and grow tbo new crop. Next year, however, this will bo rectified as the U-. V. A. is getting iu touch with, tho makers of the most up-to-j date ensilaging machinery on tbe market. It iS cafe to predict that the Card- ston district next year will .build 100 that the farmers were outguessed inl silos and that the sunflower the amount of Ihey would! vdllbo boosted from 50 acres to get.

The compilation of the original fanners' platform ot 19i6, therefore, was simply putting into codified form a series ot long sland- ing recommendations born oat of tbe practical experiences -of thousands ot I men aud women engaged in the work of farming, it may be obsarved here j also, that primarily, the farmers plat- form which more recently has been j described as a new national policy for Canada, was not designed as an [instrument to be used for electing [men to parliament. Neither was it [designed for tho purpose of embar- rassing or defeating any government which might be holding otfico. The only idea behind farmers' plat- orm was that it should bo nut into effect. Further, 11 may he truthfully said with regard to the intent ot tho or- ;anlzed farmers In issuing their plat- 'orm that the opinion has been strongly held by them for years that igriculture Canada's basin industry, tias not been justly considered and dealt with in much of tlin federal legislation of this country during the past -10 years, lii 1916 when tlie. farm- ers' platform was drafted it was planned with that conviction. It was constructed also in tho belief that sucll a policy as that advocated platform have to do mainly with ques- tions of fiscal reform. .The bedrock upon which tbe farmers' platform would lay a new national policy for Canada. Is upon a low customs tariff and will consequently be raised; or, in other cases, that the rates of duty will be considered fair, aud remain unchanged, lint alt tariff revisions are governed -by a guiding principle, this guiding principle must be and upon direct methods of luxation. n ot proteclion or the of this policy describe it as destructive, and Its supporters as o( frce trade The term Har. ,fr fo'r rovcnuo. is laisieadinB, because or rocn wreckers an.1 destroyers, .all of I a larjf[ 0, e..en tan oer cenL on an which is untrue.

As threshing progresses it is be-1 north and west of tho city ol Leth- coming -more evident that tho hot days In August had n greater effect upon yields than had been anticipat- ed. Practically all the reports tho Herald receives from its correspon- dents Indicate that the yield Is not up to expectations. Even whero bumper returns at Vulcan, were looked for, the yield is disappointing although the averngo return ran be considered fiullc satisfactory. Raymond makes a report of an average yield of 28 bush- els per acre. H Is just as well to be frank, and Id the world know that most ot the country from Tabcr has a far from good crop. In some districts the yield Is reported to be not better than from Z to 7 bushels to the acre. A farmer from Lucky Strike In the city this week told ths Herald that in 'that district the wheat was thresh- ing from about 3 to 7 bushels although there were isolated cases where crops on summer fallow were threshing 15 'bushels to the acre.
