Tub Wheat Crops. From the in
formation we get from various par;s
il' this country we learn thtit the

that two disastrous wheat years coino
in succession. Wc have heard the
opinion given by experienced farmers

no wo hope the. recent snow over the
country is a harbinger of the "good
timed coming when "cako" falia.il

aro also informed that there is a good
breadth of land sown in wlt"at in this
