TINENT REMARKABLE YIELDS OF WHEAT,
OATS, BARLEY AND FLAX IN
WESTERN CANADA LAST
Figures recently issued show that
the wheat receipts at Winnipeg last
year were 88,269,330 bushels, as com
pared with the Minneapolis receipts
of 81,111,410 bushels, this placing Win
nipeg at the head of the wheat re
ceiving markets of the continent. Fol
lowing up this information it is found
that the yields throughout the prov
inces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, as given the writer by agents
of the Canadian Government sta
tioned in different parts of the States,
have been splendid. A few of the
Instances aro given:
Near Redvers, Sask., Jens Hortness
threshed about 50 acres of wheat, av
eraging 29 bushels to the acre. Near
Elpbmstone, Sask., many of the crops
of oats would run to nearly 100 bush

On the Experimental Farm at In
Clan Head, wheat has gone below 40
bushels, while several, such as the

as high as 54 bushels to the acre. At
Elstow, Sask.. tho quantity of wheat
to tho aero ran, on tho average, from
26 right up to 40 bushels per acre,
while oats in 6ome cases yielded a

Strome. had 12.000 bushels of wheat
and uats from ISO acres. Part of the
oats yielded S3 bushels to the acre,
and tho wheat averaged about 40
bushels. Spolin Bros., four miles
southwest of Strome. had a splendid
grain yield of excellent quality wheat,
grading No. 2. A. S. McCulloch, one
mile northwest of Strome. had some
wheat that went 40 bushels to tho .
acre. .1. lilaser. a lew nines soutn
west of Strome. threshed 353 bushels
of wheat from 7 acres. Among the
good grain yields at Macklin, Alberta,
reported are: D. N. Tweedle, 22 bush
els to tho acre; John Currin, 24 bush
els wheat to the acre; Sam Fletchei,
20 bushels to tho acre.
At Craven, Sask. Albert Clark

3S 1-2 bushels to the acre. Arch Mor

a wonder, as his land has yielded him
$60 per acre in two years with one
ploughing. Russell, Man., farmers
threshed 30 bushels of wheat and 60
to SO bushels of oats. A. D. Sten
house, near Melford, Sask., had an

bushels of wheat from one qtarter
section of land. John McLean, who
owns two sections, threshed 12,860
bushels of wheat.
His Head Was Hard.
It Is a common belief that the ne
gro's head is hard, capable of with
standing almost any blow.
The following story told of a promi
nent young dentist of Danville, 111.,
would seem to indicate something of
the kind, anyhow. Two negro men
were employed on tearing down a
three-storj' brick building. One ne
gro was on top of the building taking
off the bricks and sliding them down
a narrow wooden chute to the ground,
some thirty feet below, where the
other was picking them up and piling
When this latter negro was stoop
ing over to pick up a brick, the former
accidentally let one fall, striking him
directly on the head.
Instead of its killing him, he merely
looked up, without rising, and said:

made me bite my tongue." The Circle.
