Gilbert C. Taylor, many year a resident

that he did not find a buyer last spring for
hi comfortable home at 708 East Pierce
street In February Mr.- Taylor purchased
160 acre of land in the Alberta province for
$20 an acre. He left here in the early part
of March to Improve hi land. . On the lit
of April he sold it for $30 an acre, making
a profit of 11,600 In lea than two months.
He immediately invested hi profit and
original capital in two quarter sections, and
then took a conspicuous part In the work
of building up the country. lie 1 car

at hi trade and had sufficient work - In
sight to last a year. Throughout April the
country continued to boom in the most
remarkable manner, with thousands of
houses being erected, by the new American
settler, and mechanic In1 the building
trade receiving almost any price asked
for their work.
But the boom suddenly collapsed about
the last ot June. Not a drop of rain had
fallen since April. The government and
private irrigating ditches ceased to irrigate
and by the 1st of July there wa not a
green thing, Taylor say, In a territory of
hundred of mile extent. All the crop
wera a complete failure. People of limited
resources began leaving the country In
June, and when Taylor left, about July 1,
he said the exodus was becoming almost a

could not get away except by walking or
wagon will have a serious time," said Mr,
Taylor. "I kept enough ot my wages out
of my land Investment to pay my way
home, but there were thousands who did
not and many were in a pitiable condition
when I left. They say they have had the
worst drouth there that hts been known and
it is feared that much of the farm stock
will perish by starvation. But I still have
faith In the country and I believe fortunes
will be made by taking over tha holdings
of settlers who are forced to leave the
country to escape starvation. The flight
from Canada this summer, and which has
Just now commenced, will be one of the
historic phenomena of the year.'

of the crop has not been retarded to any

the 100 per cent mark for the period of the

the crop at this stage last year.

expected from the rain. The grape crop,
which wa limited to the third output of

April and May freezes, will be greatly cur

Says De Gravy
Fourth Assistant Postmaster General
Declares Deposit System Will Be
1. V. De Grew, fourth assistant post
master general, while in Omaha tor a few
mlniUe yesterday afternoon, made several
observations regarding the recent postal
savings bank legislation, Mr. De Graw de
clares the" adoption of this system will
provs of incalculable worth to people who
have only , small amount to deposit, and
will especially Induce children to lay aside
tbalr nickel and dime where before they
spent them foolishly.
Mr. D Graw stated that another way
In which th postal bank will be helpful
wa In th money matter of th thousands
of foreigner who each year send money
through th mall or have small amounts
to deposit. Uader present condition for
eigner are aa a rule afraid to trust their
meager savings to th banks. Every large
postofflce In the country haa hundreds ot
application for postal money ordera drawn
by foreigner payable to themselves. They
believe they are safe in trusting the gov
ernment with their funds and lgnorantly
pay th larg - percentage which money
order necessitate rather than deposit their
money In the bank.
Under the postal savings system It Is
estimated that a large majority ot these
people will be brought to depositing their
money on th same principle that they now
buy money orders because they believe
their saving are most secure in th keep
ing ot Uncle Sam.
Mr. De Graw went slightly Into detail on
the method to be used, although every
thing la not yet definitely settled. A com
mission on ways and means, appointed by
the postmaster general, is now working out
final plans. The idea to be followed, as
explained by Mr. De Graw, Is In substance
Upon payment of 10 cent a person re
ceives a card upon which Is a special 10
cent stamp. Upon each small payment
thereafter stamps are placed on the card
tor the amount deposited, up to $1. When
$1 haa been so deposited th card la turned
in and a deposit book, similar to those used
in banks todity, 1 Issued to the depositor,
with an initial deposit of the $1.
When the deposit book is Issued the card
ia no longer used. From then on deposits
are made In the same manner as In banks,
any amount being accepted. A limit of
deposit 1 placed at $500. However, when
tne depositor ha saved $500 he may with
draw It and make a new start No one
person may have more than $500 on deposit
at on time. Interest will bs paid at the
rate of I per cent. "
