ANOTHER GOOD YEAR
IN WESTERN CANADA
MANITOBA, SASKATCHEWAN AND
ALBERTA HAVE SPLENDID
The result of the threshing
throughout Western Canada shows
more wonderful yield than usual of
wheat, oat, barley and flax, all of
which waa harvested and threshed in
perfect Order. Not only waa the at
rag-n yield excellent over the entire
country, hut the quality waa of the
highest standard. Without going Into
figures, it la sufficient to -ay that
wheat graded almost unlverially very
aear the top. Reports art to hand
showing yields of wheat from many
Selds which averaged forty bushels
per acre, and weighing 65 pounds to
the measured bushel. Oats were very
heavy, running from fifty to one hun
dred and fifteen bushels to the acre.
Barley also was a very heavy ylelder
and kept up the reputation of Western
Canada as a producer of that cereal.
In man;- parts of the country the yield
of flax exceeded tho earlier expecta
tions, but In other parts, there waa
some loss on account of winds blow
ing off the boll. Hundreds of farm
ers who have only been in the country
three or four years, with but little
means when they arrived, will, out of
the crop of this year, clean up all their
indebtedness, and be able to put some
thing aside for further Improvements
on their farms and homes which are
now freed of incumbrance. The writ
er has Just heard of the experience
of a man in the Battleford district
that Is worth repeating. He went to
the district seven or eight years ago,
with no money, worked for a time, got
at team of horses, did some freighting
and homesteaded a quarter section of
land. He now owns 480 acres of land,
clear of all Incumbrances, and has
wheat, oats, barley and hay, as well
as a good number of horses, cattle anU
hogs, feeding rough grain to the stock.
He Is a firm believer In mixed farming.
Tim. fifty dollars that he first earned
In tho country has now Increased to
$26,000. He has never had a crop
failure. Instances of this kind could
be repeated over and over again.
There is a Dane, named Key, east
Of Saskatoon, whose oats this year
went 110 bushels to the acre, and his
eat 40 bushels. He b paid off
ortgage tm his- farm, and now
templates a Trip to Denmark, to
Isll his old home. He has no more
taios or worries, but Is anxious to
have more of his people settle In that
part. It is not only the farmer with
limited means and small area of land
who Is doing well, and has done won
derfully in Western Canada this year,
but the man with means, the man who
la able to conduct successful farming
on a Urge scale and many opportuni
ties offer for such in Western Canada,
ftlso has increased his bank account
handsomely. A farmer In Southern
Alberta raised 350,000 bushels of grain
in 1913, and made almost a fortune
out of it. In Saskatchewan and In
Manitoba is to be heard the same
tory of what has been done by the
farmer working a large area, which
be is able to do successfully, by the
use of improved farm machinery, en
abling him to cut hundreds of acres
ft day, and plow the land Immediately
with large traction outfits. No better
recommendation could be given the
country than the fact that during the
past year, upwards of 400,000 settlers
arrived In Canada, the greater num
ber of whom went to the farm. There
are still many thousands of home
steads still available, capable of pro
ducing such crops and maintaining
such herds ui has made rich men out
of the thousands whose experiences
could be reproduced were It neces
sary. A d vertisement.

Amateur Will Do Well Not to Raise
Several Varieties of Any Vegetable
as They Are Sure to Mix
(By R. O. WKATHER8TONK.)
"No occupation," says Burbank, "re

found out that It requires more than
one generation of plant life to estab

the union of two distinct types may

In our own seed saving the utmost
care Is necessary to bring the result
up to the standard. We have all seen
two pieces of grain sown side by side,
with seemingly similar conditions.
The one was treated with extra seed,
thoroughly cleaned to remove all
weeds. The other had only fair seed,
sown as It was gathered from the field.
Perhaps it had been tested and proof
given that it would "grow." And" this
was deemed sufficient. But the har
vest was on the eide of tho good seed.
If you have an extra good crop of
cprn, the best ears, carefully selected,
both as to the number of ears on a
stalk and the size and shape of each
ear, will bring much more next spring
when sold by the bushel.
They must be carefully dried. If
put In the bin with the bulk of the
corn they may "grow." but the vitality
will be impaired, and they will not
bring the price that can be com
manded It properly cared for.
It Is the last end that is often the
losing one. After a thing is raised It
pays to care for It In the best possible
manner and get the greatest profit.
Some think that pumpkin seed are

that like begets like.
If you want to perpetuate your stock
and have something that Is really
worth saving always select the best
and the earliest for saving seed.
Select the smoothest tomatoes and
scrape the seed Into a can of cold
water. Put It In some out-of-the-way
place and let remain several days or
until the seeds have ",unk to the bot
tom of the dish. Pour off thr. water
and dry the seeds.
They will be found covered with a

In paper packets, as supplied by the
seedsman. This Is much preferable to
the old fashion of keeping them on a
Cabbage, beets, parsnips and other
biennials aro best purchased direct
from the seedsman. If your time is
worth anything it is more profitable
to buy than to raise these.
If you have any leftovers in the
seed box, be sure to date each packet
as saved, then tbere will be no chance
of wondering which is best.
If among several tested varieties one
is decidedly the best, save seeds from
this only. The amateur will do well
not to try to raise several varieties of
any vegetable as they are sure to mix
and deteriorate in quality.
If your seed is not up to the
standard do not save it but buy next
season of some reallable dealer. It is
money ahead in the end.

for the fruitgrower and farmer, but to

True It Is that time and attention and

but sxperience will be gained rapidly
when the living bees are studied In

A visit to an apiary conducted by

INJURY DONE BY HEAD LOUSE
Insects Ars Very Destructive to Lit
tle Chicks and Must Be Controlled
(By A. C. SMITH, Processor of Poultry
Husbandry, Minnesota. Experiment
The head louse attacks young
chicks generally before they are feath
ered out, and is first found on the
head with its claws or feeders sunk
into the skin of the head. As they
become more numerous, they attack
the throat and neck as well. The rem
edy 1b simple, but It takes a little time.
Each chick must have Its head
greased with lard, cottonseed oil or
olive oil. You will have to look close
ly to see these insects. They are
very destructive to chickens, and
must be controlled or exterminated if
the chick is to be healthy.
Feed for Chicks.
For the first three days chicks may
be fed a mixture of equal parts of
hard botled eggs and stale bread, or
stale bread soaked in milk. When
bread and milk are used care xhould
be exercised to squeeze all milk out
of the bread. From the third or
fourth day until the chicks can eat
wheat and cracked corn, commercial
chick feed is a good ration.
Dry Feed or Wet Mash 7
The wet mash of cornmeal and bran
that used to be the standard morning
feed of the farm flock seems to be
going out in favor of the hopper full
of a mixture of dry ground grain. The
new plan is better for large flocks, but
for a small flock the wet mash has

"There are five children In my fam

"My husband and I had heart trouble

(Caffeine causes heart trouble when
