PRIZES VpTH WHEAT How; one farmer, in the Winuifred district? is making the.lall fairs along the Crow i-.ne between Lethbridge and Bow Island furnish'-h'im a romance of betttr farming was' IBM. the Herald by W.'Scott, one of the ju'dkeyat theTTa'ber fair.- L. B. Losey of Winnifrecl, is the inin, and the story was told the judge by Mrs Losoy, who is just as interested as hei husband. For three or four years now Mr Losey has been a consistent winner of prizes for sheaf grain. The first year he won, he took the winning sheaves' home, threshed.'them oiit ant sowed the seed obtained in a small the next year. From the seed obtain ed from that plot he sowed a largei area the next year.: But from tlio ex perlmental plots, he the earii eat and best straws and heads for the second year entry He had less trouble v> inning the second year The winning sheaf he again took home and the seed therefrom foiined the basic for an experimental plot the ibjrd year, and sheaf grain picked from this plot furnished the prize win ner at the thud jears fan By following this plan Mr I osej has worked out a practical .method for procuring the best kind of seed giain and has attached a little' romance to the work Tho lesult is that his sheave. 'won quite handily at Taber yesterda> Another result is that Mi Loaey's whole faun was sown this year with seed procured by this metli od of seed selection, and it is notable that his crop ripened earliei than most the grain in the district. The constant selection of -the best .heads and the earliest maturing besides has given him a strain of seed grain much better than the average: And lie made the fair nrizes help to'pay the cost of the extra work while the UIi judges eacli year aided him .by their know- ledge in his work of selection. So Says .1. M. Cameron, C.P.R. Gen. Supt., Who Is Opti- mistic on Crop GRAIN BEGINNING TO MOVE TO MARKET NOW Two hundred and two cars of grain were moved off the Alberta district nt the C. P. R. yesterday. This was fairly evenly divided between the Lethbridge and Medicine Hal divis- ions. The above figures referring to Ilie movement of the new crop were given to the Herald this afternoon by Gen era! Superintendent Cameron. Mr Cameron arrived' in the city at one o'clock in his private car Lillooet, ac 1 comvanied by Mr. Peters of the Bank 'of Montreal and Mayor Costello o "when' seen by the Herald the wholi party appeared to be most optimistii regarding what had been seen along he Aldersyde 'lino during tho trip. The crop is without doubt turning jut away above my expectations of hree weeks said Mr. Cameron. The lowest return I have heard ot vet is bushels to the acre, and 1 vould hate to tell you the highest. Considering that our 10-year average s around IS bushels, the crop -a msct vonderful." Mr. Cameron considered it a very good barometer of business here that the hotels are being taxed to accom- modate the travelling public. The balft clearings for the city were also lommented upon. Mayor Costello was anxious to know the population of Letliliridge so that he might compare the figures given with the actual returns which will be made by the census branch In a few days.
