HARVEST BIG THIS YEAR Farmers and Grain Growers to Pocket Surplus of About $100,000,000. ■ - ♦ BIG YIELDS REPORTED OTTAWA, Oct. 6—An official statement of the grain harvest of Canada has just been issued by the statistics department of the do minion government here. It gives the estimates of production, com puted from the reports Qf a large staff of fcirraspondents, and al though the\totals are somewhat less than thoSe of a month ago for wheat and barley, they still show that Canada has reaped an im mense harvest. The wheat crop is put down at 168,386,000 bushels, giving an average of 22 bushels per acre, and barley at 57,000,000 bush •els, or 31 bushels per acre. The yield of oats Is given at 355,000 bushels, or 38 bushels per acre. The grain movement is begin ning and if present prices hold the crop will not only be the lafgest, but the most profitable in th<* his tory of the country. Harveßtipg op erations were practically concluded at the end of August, except in Quebec and the maritime provinces nnd although there was a scarcity of labor in the northwest the fine weather there made the cutting of grain practicable in good weather. The wheat yield for Manitoba Sasknchewan and Alberta is over 149,000,000 bushels and oats 187,- --800,000 bushels. WASP WAIST MUST GO, IS THE DECREE London Modistes Agree Upon the Correct Measure. LONDON, Oct. 6. —A 26 inch waist is the decree for the autumn. Most modistes and corsetleres are combining with eahc other to give the fashionable figure additional f girth, a startling change from the extreme attenuations of the recent directoire vogue. Mrs. Elinor Temple, one of the many upper class women who have taken to trade, is impressing upon the society women who consult her in hercapacity as a corset scientist that they must develop n. 26 inch waist in readiness for the new au tumn fashions. "This is a reasonable and satis factory waist measurement for a woman of average size," explains Mrs. Temple. To cultivate waist and waist only is, she says, as aesthetic as well as a physical mistake. Mrs. Temple's strongest lever with her feminine patrons is, however, her assurance that the English man has ceased to .admire the wasplike waist.

Miss Mary Mac Arthur, the Brltisch delegate, declared that many young women gave as their reason for not Jolniflg the organiza tion that they expected to get mar ried. Later it was decided to give a bonus ef $10 annually for 10 years to every member of the union who shall get married. Strenuous objection to the plan was raised among certain members, and it was decided that every worn- terday the preliminary negotiations were carried qn # by wireless while Mr. Beck was in mid ocean. When he and H. Meyerfield Jr., president of the Orpheum circuit, were returning to American re cently on the Oceanic a Marconi message was sent them in care of the ship: "Klaw & Erlanger have released Alice Lloyd. Free from October." To this Mr. Beck replied: "Close with Lloyd entire season," and upon his arrival here the details of the long route were quickly ar ranged. "How is it your rabbits are so fond of you, Edwin?" "I dunno, mister, unless it's that my head is curly like a head of letuuce." . They fit and look juts as well as the very best overcoats, yet they have been treated by a water proof process that makes them just as serviceable as a regu lation mackintosh.

In case ope of these latter should break her vqw the money that has been paid her must be re turned with Interest. In speaking of the plan, which was finally adopted, Miss Mac Arthur said: .'We want married women in our union. Working girls make the best wives, and our organization wants to go on record as encourag |ng matrimony." j STEEL CARS FOR COAST EXTENSION OF C, M. & ST. P. MILWAUKEE, Oct. 6.—The Chi cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul rail-! road has ordered 250 all-steel pas- - senger ears, of which 160 are for the western coast extension and 90, cars to be used on the old lines , in Wisconsin, Illinois and other! states. The St. Paul road Is the first western line to place a big order for the expensive steel passenger cars of the non-telescoping type. The' Harriman lines have recently or- j dered 600 such cars and the Penn-| Hylvania road in the east was a pioneer in buying 500 cars of the fmproved kind. . * I The assignment of so many of the cars to the western extension is attributed to the necessity for getting new passenger equipment for 2,000 miles of new road and to' meet the strong competition and better passenger service to the Pa-! cific coast which is being inaugur-; ated by the Hill lines from tbe Twin Cities westward. I The purchase of the new steel cars indicates that the St. Paul road is going to pay more attention in the future to developing its pas senger traffic.
