RAKE STUBBLE OF CANADIAN
WHEAT FIELDS AND GET
GOOD WAGES FOR WORK
REGINA, Sask.—Four pretty vil
lage girls have taught the farmers
of the great wheat belt of western
Canada a lesson in thrift. They have
shown what a vast amount of grain
is lost by modern harvesting methods
and how it can be saved by a little
extra labor. From stubble fields
abandoned by their owners and await
ing the plow, these girls gleaned with
rakes enough wheat to sell for $646.50.
Gleaning has never been customary
The farmers who, in this
bonanza land, sometimes clear enough
on one wheat crop to pay for their
farms, have been content with the
twenty and thirty bushels to the acre
obtained by harvesting machinery.
Two girls living at Stony Beach
asked a farmer for permission to go
over his stubble field with rakes. Cer
tainly, said the farmer and all they
gleaned they could have. The» girls
set to work next day at sun-up and
kept at it until twilight. The farmer
mildlv interested as he watched
them; they made a pretty picture, re
calling Ruth of old gleaning in the
fields of Boaz. He was surprised
when at the end of four days, he saw
a big wheat stack standing in his
stubble field. When the girls threshed
their gleanings, they sold the wheat
Two other girls of Bounty heard of
the success of the maidens of Stony
Beach and tried a similar experiment.
They gleaned 150 bushels of wheat
from 160 acres of abandoned stubble
fields and sold the grain for $331.50.

Since southern Idaho has gone to
