GAIHER IN WHEAT Farmers of Western Canada Re joice at Harvest. Largest Crop in the History of the Fertile Provinces May Be Con siderej Assured. Reports of Western Canada's wheat crop, which may be considered fairly accurate, aa they are made at the end uf the season, when the crop la fully harvested, would Indicate a yield of between 350,000,000 and 370, 000,000 bushels from a total acreage of 21.471.00a This is the greatest yield In the history of the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Al berta. This immense yield has only been harvested through the combined energies of all public bodies rail waya and governments. It required the assistance, out&lde of that locally employed, of upward of 40,000 men. These were brought into the country from the East, the West and the South, by trainioads, and rushed for ward at express speed, to be placed in the different districts, under the direc tion of officials who were kept advised dally, by wire, of the needs. As a result of this combined effort the largest wheat crop In the history of the West was successfully harvest ed. The threshing reports show that almost universally, In every section of the country, the grain graded high. In very few places did rain Interfere with stacking. The province of Mani toba was the first to complete thresh ing. Very few fields being left at the time of writing. Portions of Saskatchewan that had Buffered from drought for the past two or three years reaped a crop that largely made up for past disappoint ments. In Alberta there was a strange con dition. In the central district, always noted for Its heavy yields, there was considerable of a falling off. Instead of the 35 and 40 bushel yields the average ran from 10 to 12, while In southern portions, where drought had affected the country for some time past, there were exceptionally high yields. Reports of Individual yields In dif ferent portions of the three provinces lead to the impression that when threshing returns are In there will be found to have been a much better crop than at present seems possible. Some of these returns give Individual farm ers as getting as high as 45 bushels others 35, and so on, while In some districts,- where In early August not more than 8 or 10 bushels might be looked for, 15 and IS bushels are re corded, the Improvement having been brought about by rains that worked marvels In the appearance of the crop. And then, too. Instead .of the head carrying four rows, most of them car ried six rows, and filled to the top, which, to those who know, means at least fifty per cent more. The rye crop of all Western Can ada Is exceptionally good; the oats generally good and barlay fair. The weather at the time of writing Is threatening for a rainy spell, which may Interfere with threshing, and pro long It somewhat. Most of the newcomers from the States have excellent crops. During August, the trains to Western Canada ' carried hundreds of capitalists and others Interested In Western Canada land, going up to take care of the crop that they had arranged to have put In on the land Ihey owned. Very few of them will be disappointed. Adver tisement Good Portable Lock. A portable door and window lock that can be carried In the pocket and applied anywhere without nails or screws has recently been Invented by B. N. Wlckwire of Carbondale, Pa.
