GATHER IN WHEAT
Farmers of Western Canada Re
joice at Harvest.
Largest Crop In the History of th
Fartlle Provinces May Bo Con-
Iteports of Western Canada's wheat
crop, which may be considered fairly
nccurate, as they arc made at tho
end of tbe season, when the crop Is
fully harvested, would Indicate a
yield of between Itno.OOO.OOO and 070,'
000,000 bushels freni a total acreage
of 21,471,000. This Is the greatest
yield In the history of the provinces
of Manitoba. Saskatchewan and Al
berta. This Immense yield has only
been hnrvosted through the combined
energies of all public bodies rail
ways and governments. It required
the assistance, outside of that locally
employed, of upward of 40,000 men.
These wero brought Into the country
from tho East, Hie West nnd tho
South, by tralnloads, and rushed for
ward at express speed, to be placed In
tbe different districts, under the direc
tion of ofllclnls who were kept advised
dally, by wire, of the needs.
As a result of this combined effort
the lnrgest whent crop In tbe history
of the West was successfully harvest
ed. Tho threshing reports show that
almost unlversnlly, In every section
of the country, the grain graded high.
In very few places did rain Interfere
with stacking. The province of Mani
toba was tho first to complete thresh
ing, very few fields being left at tbo
time of writing.
Portions of Saskatchewan Hint had
Buffered from drought for the pnst
two or three years reaped a crop that
largely mndo up for past disappoint
ments. In Alberta there wns a strange con
dition. In the central district, nlways
noted for Its heavy yields, there was
considerable of a falling off. Instead
of the :i5 and 40 bushel yields tho
average ran from 10 to 12, while in
southern portions, where drought hnd
affected the country for some timo
past, there wero exceptionally high
Iteports of Individual yields in dif
ferent portions of the three provinces
lend to the Impression that when
threshing returns are in there will bo
found to bnve been n much better crop
than nt present seems possible. Some
of these returns give Individual farm
ers ns getting ns high as 45 bushels
others 35, and so on, while in somo
districts, where in enrly August not
more than 8 or 10 bushels might bo
looked for, 35 and 18 bushels are re
corded, the Improvement having been
brought nbout by rains Hint worked
marvels In tho appearance of tbo crop.
And then, too, Instend of the head
carrying four rows, most of them car
ried six rows, and filled to tho top,
which, to those who know, menns nt
least fifty per cent more.
The rye crop of all Western Can
ada Is exceptionally good; the oats
generally good and bnrlny fair.
The weather at tbe time of writing
Is threatening for a rainy spell, which
niny Interfere with threshing, and pro
long It somewbnt.
Most of tho newcomers from tbo
Stntes have excellent crops'. During
August, the trnlns to Western Cnnnda
