Long-continued drought in July, that ha'ster.rd the maturing of wheat and oats considerably 'heforo their time, resulted In- Manitoba and Sas- katchewan in wops so light and patchy in many :areas that a rank growth of weeds 'usurped the place of grain. In Alberta the extraordinary profusion ot w-cd' growth has been duo to the drought and moro to tho conditions under- which the seed went Into the grouh'd last spring.
