"Cotton has begun to grow, but its
condition is not nearly so good as in
former Julies. It got a late start
that it hasn't been able to recover,
and it is now 30 or 40 days late. The
fact that it is growing is receptive,
and to realize how bad conditions are,
the crop must be compaxed with past

WOMEN AS FARMERS.
Success of Some Who Have Taken
Claims in the Northwest.
New York Tribune.
In the great Canadian Northwest,
where the erswhile wilderness is wav
ing with golden grain and towns are
springing -up over night, not a few
women 'have gone to seek their for
tunes alone. A homestead grant of
160 acres is free, and any "head of a
familv.'' man or woman, may secure
it upon application to the Canadian
government. Usually, of course, the
applicant is-a man, but occasionally a
woman essays to make her fortune on
the prairies without masculine aid.
Miss Marie Gilroy, of Saska-tche
wan, is one of the most famous wo
man settlers of the west. She put her
last shilling into a prairie farm and
spent seven years in a hand-to-hand
tussle with fortune, sitting on her
own binder, cutting her own grain.
handling the plough in the furrow
and doing stable duty. In 1906 her
holding excited' the admiration of a
young Englishman, and Miss Gilroy
was induced to hand over lock, stock
and barrel to -him for the round sum
of $13.000. Today Miss Gilrov is tour
ing Europe on the proceeds of her
Mrs. McGilvray, who came to the
Canadian West 20 years ago with six
small children, is another prominent
woman farmer of Saskatchewan. Be
ginning almost penniless, her 160
acres of homestead have now grown to
an 800-acre estate. and her children
are settled around lyer in comfort and
Salonre Wertman came with her
husband and little family from R.us
sia, and soon she, too, was a widow.
She still kept on "trying to earn
bread,'' as she says, and 16 years af
ter her absolutely penniless start she
stands on one of the successful land
owners of Saskatchewlan.
Mrs. Ferris is known as the "wo
man farmer'' of the Portage Plains.
Left with a family of young children,
she has managed her farm most suc
cessfully since the death of her hus
band. She comes from Belfast, Ire
land, and when she arrived in Western
Canada with her husband 32 years ago
they had no capital at all. She now
has an estate of 760 acres, and her 2
sons are settled near at hand, each
the owner of section and a half of
land-about 500 acres.
Mrs. Grant has a beautiful farm on
the banks of the Canadian Killarney
in Southern Mantioba. Three years
ago she went there from Scotland with
her ,:-nn a yrong- man just out of col
le'e. and her dauwliter. A vear a,o
