The Harvest Season will Open
Considerably Later This
Year Than Usual.
Advices being received by the
Twin Cities and head of the lakes
employment agencies from the
western wheat country indicate
that the harvest season will open
about two weeks later this season
than last. Last year harvest be
gan about August 1, but this year
it is not expected to open until
about the middle of August in
the main wheat belt.
Harvesting in Kansas aud Ne
braska is already in progress
and it is said that very high
wages are being paid. The har
vest wages offer strong induce
ments to the men who are em
ployed on railroad and other
classes of work and the employ
ers find it a difficult matter to
hold them to the work when the
wheat cutting begins. In previ

Northwest have been seriously
delayed because of the men jump
