The hats wero doffed to Cnnadn
during the two wcokB of the hand
Show and the week of the Livo Stock
Show at Chicago. Willing to dloplay
its goods, anxious to let the people of
the central states know what could
be produced on Canadian fnrm lands,
and tno quality of the article, Hon.
Dr. Roche, minister of the Interior
of Canada, directed that sufficient
spaco be secured at the United
8tates Land Show, recently held, to
give some adequate Idea of the field
resources of western Canada. Thoso
In chargo had splendid location, and
Installed ono of the most attractive
grain and grass exhibits ever seen
anywhere. Thousands, anxious to get
"back to the land," saw tho exhibit,
aaw wheat that weighed 68 pounds to
the measured bushol, oats that went
48 and barley that tipped tho scales
at G5 pounds. The clover, the alfalfa,
the wild pea vino and vetch, the rye
grass, the red-top and many other suc
culent and nutritious varieties of wild
grasses demanded and deserved from
their prominence and quality the at
tentlon they received. Tho grain tn
tho straw, bright In color, and carry
ing heads that gave evldenco of the
truth of tho statements of Mr. W. J.
White of Ottawa, and his attendants,
that tho wheat would average 28 to
85 bushels and over per acre, the oats
C5 to 105 bushels, tho flax 12 to S8
bushels, wero strongly In evidence,
and arranged with artistic tasto on
the walls. The vegetable exhibit was
a surprise to the visitors. Potatoes,
turnips cabbage, In fact, all of it
proved that not only in grains was
western Canada prominent, but In
vegetables it could succesfully com
pete with the world.
One of the unique and successful
features of the exhibit was tho suc
cessful and systematic dally distribu
tion of bread made from Canadlai
flour. It was a treat to thoso who got
it. Canadian butter, Canadian cheese
and Canadian honey helped to com
plete an exhibit that revealed in a
splendid way the great resources of
a country In which so many Amer
icans have made their home.
A feature of tho exhibit was the
placards, announcing the several re
cent successes of Canadian farm
produce and live stock, In strong com
petition with exhibits from other
countries. There was posted the
Leager Wheeler championship prize
for Marquis wheat grown at Rosthern
In 1911, beating the world. Then I.
HolmeB of Cardston entered, tho com
petitive field at Leth'brldge Dry Farm
ing Congress, and won. the wheat
championship of 1912, beating Mr.
Wheeler with tho same variety of
wheat Hill ft Sons of Lloydmlnster,
Saskatchewan, in 191 won the Cola
rado silver trophy for best oats grown,
competed for in a big competition at
Columbus, Ohio, in 1911. The produce
of British Columbia at tho New York
Land Show in 1911 carried off tba
world's championship for potatoes,
and Incidentally won a $1,000 sllvei
trophy, and then, but a few yeata ago,
the same province carried off the
world's prize for apples at the Horti
cultural 8how In London, England.
But that was not all. These Cana
dians, who had the temerity to stati
that corn was not the only feed fot
finishing high-grade beef cattle, en
tered for the fat steer championship
at the Ltvo Stock Show in Chicago a
polled Angus "Qlencarnock Victor."
Nearly 800 ontrles were in the field.
"Qlencarnock Victor" didn't know a
kernel of corn from a Brazilian wal
nut. There 'wore Iowa, Illinois, Ne
braska, Kansas. Minnesota, Wiscon
sin and their corn-fed article, deter
mined to win, bound to beat this black
animal from the north, and his "noth
ing but prairie grass, oats and barley
'feed," as his owner proudly stated, but
they didn't. Canada and McGregor ft
Bona, with their "Qlencarnock Victor,"
won, and today the swelldom of Amer
ica la eating of bib steaks and roasts
'the champion steer of the world.
But ouco more the herd of cattle
that won tho Sweepstakes at the
same show was bred and owned by
the owners of ."Qlencarnock Victor."
fed only on prairie grass, oats and
barley, near Brandon, Manitoba. The
royal reception given to Mr. Mc
Gregor on big return to his 'home
town was well deserved.
Omission must not be made of the
wonderful and beautiful display of
apples made by British Columbia, oc
cupying a full half section of the
preat Land Show. This was in per
sonal charge of Mr. W. E. Scott, dep
uty minister of agriculture for that
province, who waB not only a host to
those who visited the exhibit, but
was also an encyclopedia of Informa
tion regarding the resources of that
country, With 200,000 Americans go
ing to western Canada this year, It Is
pleasing to know that so many from
this side of the lino can participate In
tho honors coming to that new coun
