Good Yields of Wheat, Splendid Production of Pork, Beefr. Mutton and Wool. The latest reports give an assur ance of good grain crops throughout most of Western Canada, where the wheat, oats and bnrley are now being harvested about ten days earlier than last year. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta are all "doing, their bit" In a noble way towards furnishing food for the allies. -xf While the total yield of wheat will not be as heavy as in 1915, there are indications that it will 4e an aver age crop In most of the districts. A letter received at the St. Paul office of the Canadian Government, from a farmer near Delia, Alberta, says har vest la that district is one month earlier than last year. His wheat crop is estimated at 35 bushels per acre, while some of his neighbors will have more. The average in the district will *be aboHt 30 bushels per acre. Now, with the price of wheat in the neigh borhood of $2 per bushel, it is safe to say that there will be very few farm ers but will be able to bank from for ty to fifty dollars per acre after pay ing all expenses of seeding, harvest ing and threshing, as well as taxes. ''The price of land In this district is from $25 to $30 per acre. Wliat may be said of this district will apply to almost any other in Manitoba, Saa katchewan or Alberta. Many farmers have gone to Western Cauada from1 the United States in the past three or four years, who having purchased lands, had the the payments before they They have made the money out of their crops during the past couple of years, and if they are as successful in the future as in the past they will have put themselves and their families beyond all possibility of lack of money for the rest of their lives. It is not only in wheat that the farmers •of Western Canada are making money. Their hogs have brought them wealth, and hogs are easy to raise there—bar ley is plentiful and grass abundant, and the climate just the kind that hogs glory in. The price is good and likely to remain so for a long time, A few days since a farmer from Daysland, Alberta, shipped a carload of hogs to the St. Paul market, and got a higher price than was ever be fore paid on that market. Two mil lion three hundred and seventy-seven thousand two hundred and fifty dol lars was received at Winnipeg for Western hogs during the first, six months of this year. 181,575 hogs were sold at an average price of $15 per ewt., and had an average weight of 200 pounds each. The raising of hogs is a profitable and continually growing industry of Western Canada, and this class of stock is raised as economically here as anywhere on the North American continent. There is practically no hog disease, and Im mense quantities of food, can be pro duced cheaply. V'-' It has been told for years that the grasses of Western Canada supply to both beef and milk producers the nu tritive properties that go to the devel opment of both branches. The stories that are now being published by dairymen and beef cattle men verify all the predictions that have ever been made regarding the" country's im portance In the raising of both beaf and dairy cattle. The sheep industry is developing rapidly. At a sale at Oalgary 151,458 pounds of woo! were disposed of at sixty cents a poimi. At a sale at Edmonton 60,000 pounds were sold at even better prices than those paid at Calgary. The total dip this season will probably approximate two million pounds. Many reports are to hand showing from six to eight pounds per fleece. 35 carloads were sent to the Toronto market alone.— Advertisement. r* If a man has nothing else to spend lie can spend his vacation at home.

Russian pacifism may be. It is no doubt far better for the world in the long run that th« largest nation in Europe should reveal itsolf, when freed from the csarn, -as notably peaceful in temper. Till the war. is won, of course, we should like to see the bolsheviki living up to the old adage, "Scratch a Russian and find a Tartar." There if much Tartar blood in Russia, and the Tartars appear to have been as warlike and. predatory a stock as any of which wo have record just now It would In- helpful if the Tartar aido were more in evidence. But looking ahead to the long days to come after the war. this revelation of Russian character has its redeeming side. It makes an end of "the Russian menace," which till 1907 affected Great Britain as much a* it did Germany after that. Neither In Germany nor in Austria-Hungary, Jh« so far as ItH peoples are concerned, is there any longer a dread of Russian aggression, and what that means to the prospects for a durable peace Is obvious. The essential thing now is to keep the predatory governments of the central empires from profiting by the streak of pacifism in Russia, agd luckily that need is now realised even by the Russian Intelligence.
