NEW WESTMINSTER, Sept. 12.
���To the eastern visitors, and to the
residents of the Province not near
an Indian reservation, one of the
most interesting features of the annual Provincial exhibition at New
Westminster is the display of Indian
work, and the Indians themselves.
While the race is civilized now, specimens which seem as primitive as in
the frontier days are to be seen.
The Indians, being wards of the government, are always admitted free
to the Westminster Exhibition, and
they take advantage of their privilege in large numbers. They apparently enjoy the noise and gaiety, for
every year sees hundreds of redskins at the fair.
Besides being interested in tne exhibition from a spectator's standpoint, the Indians have a space reserved for them, and they enter the
results of their labor ln competition
for liberal prizes. Manager D. E.
MacKenzle, of the 1912 fair, says
that the Westminster exhibition is
practically the first in Canada to
recognize the fact that the Indians
will shortly have to turn their attention to farming for a livelihood. To
encourage them ln thts, the management each year pays special attention to Indian exhibits, charging no
entry fees and offering substantial
prizes for the best showing.
In the women's department, a
prize of $20 and a second prize of
110 is offered for the best collection
of needle work from an Indian
school. For the best assortment ot
Indian made baskets, including nsat-
est wor_. pnMg 0f $10 and $5 are
Offtred. For bottled fruit, not less
than five bottles, put up by an Indian woman or girl, prizes of $5
and $3 are offered, First prizes of
$3 and second prizes of %2 are offered for needlework, knitting, crochet work, moccasins, butter, and
bread. **-���*."��. T1? r   *
Division B Includes the agricultural and horticultural prizes. In
this class, special prizes of $25, $15
and $10 are offered for the best exhibit of farm products and fruit from
any Indian reservation In the province. Other prizes of $2 and $1 are
offered for the best wheat, oats, timothy seed, clover seed, potatoes, carrots, turnips, onions, corn, beans,
peas, cabbage, pumpkins, squash,
apples and pears. These exhibits
are allowed to be sold.
In past years there has always
been a good representation ln all
classes, and some entries have already been received this year. Entries close on Sept. 21. Entry blanks
and Instructions may be obtained
from Mr. MacKenzie, in this city.

Building on the new Ladner High
School has been making substantial
progress this week. The cement
foundations and the first floor are
now completed and work on the second floor is now proceeding.
The new structure will be another 1
handsome addition to the  buildings

Guichon was the chairman and there]
was a full attendance of members. |
Mr. H. A. MacDonald, th- secre-'
tary-treasurer,  read  the annual  re-!
port, which showed an excellent state
of the club's finances.    While there,
was a deficit in last year's balance

near, attention may be again called
to the dates, namely, Friday, September 19 and Saturday, September 20.
Those who have not yet done so. and
desire to exhibit, are reminded that
entries must be filed with tne secretary on or before September 19.
Greatly due to the untiring efforts
of Mr. A. de R. Taylor, the secretary,
supported by the hearty co-operation
of the other officers, the forthcoming show will be an excellent one,
aud the entries large and varied.
It now remains for the public to
attend in generous numbers this exhibition of the best products of the
Delta, which many beyond Its bonders consider the most fertile land
In the province. As regards horses
and sheep, the Delta Fall Fair generally has the best exhibition in the
whole field.
The officers this year are as follows: President, H. J. Hutcherson;
vice-president, A. D. Paterson; secretary, A. deR. Taylor; treasurer, H.

John A. Thompson,    Who Recently
Died  in  Victoria, Was  WeU
Known in Ladner.
Mr. John A. Thompson, steamboat
inspector, whose death in Victoria
was reported last week, was well and
most favorably known by a number
ot people ln Ladner and Steveston.
He ls described by Captain Brewster,
of the SS. "New Delta," as a man
rigorous ln the discharge of his
duties, but withal of a genial and
considerate disposition.
Mr. Thomson was the son of Andrew Thomson, of Newblggin, England, who moved to Scotland, and at
Glasgow he was born 65 years ago.
He obtained a reputation as a marine
engineer of standing, and was employed with many important vessels
steaming out of British ports till he
came to B.C. ln 1886.
For some time after coming here
he was engaged on various coasting
vessels, and 23 years ago received
his appointment from the Dominion
government as steamboat inspector.
He made a very wide circle of
friends In his professional capacity,
[rom whom messages of condolence
were received by the family when
the news of his decease was made
public.
Mr. Thomson was associated as an
elder with St. Andrew's Presbyterian
church, Victoria, and from that
church he was burled ou Thursday
Rev. W. Leslie Clay officiating.
He is survived by the widow, and
one son, Francis A. Thomson, head
of the department of mining engineering, State College of Washington,
at Pullman.
The crops generally In the Delta
are now in excellent shape. Threshing has been rapidly carried on during the fine weather this week, and
; a few days should see the great bulk
of the oafs safely garnered.
The potato canker, although more
' or less prevalent in certain areas, Is
not, according to all accounts, nearly
: so apparent  in  the Delta district as
elsewhere.
Mr. F. J. MacKenzle, M.P.p., was
in Victoria on Wednesday, looking
after some departmental business ot
interst to his constituents. In
the course of an Interview, he referred to farming prospects in the
Delta.
Mr. MacKenzie reports that the
erection of the reclamation TTams on
the Nicomekl and Serpentine rivers
Ib progressing satisfactorily. The
steel gates, of which there will be
five to each dam, arrived a few dayS
ago. These reclamation works will
cost about $135,000, and will benefit about 12,000 acres of land, making It worth many hundreds of dollars an acre.
Mr. Mackenzie says that farming
operations in the Delta have been In-,
terfered with to some extent by rain,
but the crops are in splendid con-,
ditlon. The root crops have never
been better and will more than make
up for the smaller yield of hay and
other crops that hare been affected
by the wet weather, %,

���Loaded to capacity with stock, exhibits and concessions, the arrival or
the ship from Victoria on the Sunday
preceding the opening is always one
of the most Interesting of the many
Interesting things connected with the
Provincial Exhibition at New Westminster, on October 1 to 5. The
Victoria exhibition for years has been
held Just before the Provincial fair
here, and a great many people enter
their stock and exhibits In both of
them. It ls these that are brought
over. Concessionaries also show at
both places, and tnke up some of the
room on the boat coming over. The
entries this year are exceptionally
heavy and a big load Is expected.
The Victoria fair will close on Sept.
28. and.the boat will be loaded Saturday night, arriving her* on Sunday. Monday will be spent in getting the exhibits In place.
While the Victoria boat brings ln
a great load, It is far from being

be seen at the Exhibition. A great
many people exhibit no place but In
New Westminster, and these will

A comparatively new local Industry which deserves every encouragement, Is the nursery established by
Mr. Joseph Mills, at Burrvllla, Delta.
Commencing business there tn 1910
as nurserymen and florist, Mr. Mills
has steadily increased his stock and
output, and it is his ambition to
prove the adaptability of Delta soil
for growing the finest flowering
plants, fruits and vegetables of any
in the province.
The extent of the ground covered
Is about 15 acres and the land is
admirably situated for the purpose
of cultivating the best plants and
roots.
Mr. Mills has over 1000 roses in
bloom and 1000 bush fruit in stock.
He has a large stock of chrysanthemums, carnations, and varieties of
pot plants.
Among his specialties are strawberries, tomatoes, and cucumbers
under glass, and these are of the very
best description.
That wizard of the plant world,
Mr. Bur-bank, has evolved many
strange and successful combinations

DAIRY RUN ON
SANITARY LINES
Purity    of   Milk    Supply    is   Safeguarded in Every Possible
Manner.
HUNTINGDON, B.C., Sept. 10.���
Sumas-Huntingdon, as the new Board
of Trade is to be called, is one of
the most important dairying sections
of the province, and dairying is the
principal industry of the farmers or
Sumas prairies.
Chiefly in Huntingdon, and partly
on the American side of the boundary
line, Mr. H. W. Vanderhoof has u
large dairy farm run on the latest
scientific and sanitary lines. About
280 acres ot Mr. Vanderhoof's land
is on the Canadian side and about
40 acres on the American side. This
does not prevent the milk produced
from the cows on either side beln-.
equally good.
Mr. Vanderhoof's farm includes
about DO cows and 3 bulls, chiefly
Holsteins and Ayrshires of first-class
breed   and   pedigree.
As the purity of milk is now considered so vital a matter to the
health of any community, it may be
here stated that the most sanitary
precautions are observed on this
farm. All clothes worn by the
milkers are washed daily and other
measures taken to ensure thorough
cleanliness. The milk is passed
from the cows into the pails through
a strainer consisting of a double
layered cheese cloth and a layer of
absorbent cotton, thus preventing
all dirt or impurities being retained.

The main barn comprises four
separate stall divisions, providing accommodation for about 60 cows. It
has cement floors, sanitary cement
troughs for feed and litter carriers
which are attended to strictly and
promptly. The barn, which has electric lighting, has also fly and mosquito screens. All these cows and
bulls are tuberculin tested before
being used on the farm.
All milk and cream undergo a
cooling process, the latest system of
this treatment being employed. Bottles and milk palls are also thoroughly washed with hot water before
the.- ure conveyed to the hot steam

SURREY'S EXHIBITION.
Efforts  Being  Made  to Improve- on
Past Tears���New Hall Will Be
Convenience.
CLOVERDALE, B. C, Sept. 9.���
The weather during the past few
-weeks has been very unfavorabla
to the farmers and all are united in
the opinion that it is the wettest season they have seen here.
Under the active directions of Secretary Bose, the Surrey Agricultural
Association are making extensive
preparations to have their exhibition
at Surrey Centre on the 24th inst.
the most successful ever held. A
large, new hall 74x50 feet has just
been erected on the east side of their
grounds, which are four acres in extent, and which have all been cleared and fenced. This building will
be used for agricultural and domestic exhibits, while the old building
Is being moved to the south of the
new building. This overlooks the
ted up as a poultry building, which
will be greatly appreciated by exhibitors of this line of stock, as heretofore no adequate provision has
been made for the exhibits of poui
try. A large verandah has he* n
built running the full length of tin
ne Wbulldlng. This overlooks th(
whole of the grounds and will glvi
shelter to visitors In the event of in
clement weather. The grounds them
selves are well situated at the top ol
the hill above McLellan station on
the B. C, Electric Bull way, an dcom-
mand a magnificent view of tbe .'il*-o-
mekl and Serpentine valleys to the
south and west which are being
rapidly developed. The Ladles'
Guild have also been doing their
share to help things along, and In
order to furnish meals and refreshments have had a building constructed for this purpose sufficiently large
to accommodate all who attend.
The second annual ball under the
auspices of (' company, 104th Itegl-
ment, will be given in the opera
house, Cloverdale, on Friday evening the -.'Tth inst. Music will be
furnished by Openshaw's orchestra
and a large nteiulance is anticipated.
Ladles will be admitted free, while
gentlemen will lie charged a fee of
$1.50 to help defray expenses. I

More  Comments  From  Toronto  on
the Colony Farm Horse Exhibits.
Colony Farm, Mt. Coquitlam, B.C.,
has a great   show   of   Clydesdales,
Shires, Hackneys and ponies, in fact,
they occupy more than one full barn,
states the Toronto World ln its report of the horse exhibits at the Toronto  Exhibition.    This stable  has
been very fortunate in the matter of
prizes;   in  fact nearly every animal
shown has had a prize ribbon placed
on it. In Clydesdales, Solway Prince,
two-year-old bay filly,    good    color,
lots of substance, and looks all over
the typical Clydesdale.    Opal, black
mare, three years old, received first
as a three-year-old.    Nerlsa,    2805,
champion mare of Scotland, six years
old, ls certainly a beautiful    mare,
and has good, clean, flat bone, and
lots of hair.    It has not been shown
here yet, but shows today.    Peggy's
Pride,  another    six-year-old    mare,1
also a champion  in  Scotland.    The
above  are  all  Imported.    The  only
Canadian-bred mare in the lot is City
Lady, a nice brown mare    that    is
champion of the Pacific coast.    She
has  won   first    and     championship;
wherever shown. Bowhill Baron, No. |
327,  also  champion  stallion  of  the
'aciflc coast,    .u    Regina    he was
awarded the reserved championship, j
He is a two-year-old and weighs now
1960 lbs.     He has splendid feet and I
legs and one of the best actors pos-i
sible for a heavy horse, Colony Lady i
Begg, two-ye|r-old    bay    mare    by!
Royal Favorite, imp., was a champion I
In her class in Scotland.    The best1
she could  do  at our Canadian   National  was second ln  a very strong
class.    Melltla,    a red roan    mare,
three years old, by Sam Black, Imp.
This Is a particularly good mare, has
the best  of  feet and legs,  and  conformation is about perfect,   -Sli > will
weigh close to a ton when In condition.
In Shires Colony Farm Is prominent. Boro Heiress was highly thought
of wherever shown. In fact, tho
number of prizes In the stall would
lead one to believe she had them all.
She Is a typical Shire. Boro Duchess
a beautiful Iron gray mare, was
awarded second In her class. Flash
Flora, a three-year-old bright bay,
well marked, wus awarded first prlz*
at the Canadian National. Taudvllla
Rambler, a two-year-old colt, beautiful color of jet black, will make a
grand horse when matured. In
Hackneys, Brigham Badlant Is at the
head of the stud. This horse was
beaten here, but this ls tbe first time
ever beaten ln a show ring. He is a
nice bay, with white markings, and
can act to perfection both front and
hind. Craigmoor Peer is a very
promising two-year-old chestnut colt,
which won first and reserve* at this
show. In the pony classes this stable
has a splendid lot, which have received their share of prizes.

Niagara Falls at one end of a
transmission line, a fat Holstein cow
at the other, and the Falls milking
the cow, that is the latest triumph of
that indefatigable worker, Hon.
Adam Beck, says "The Toronto Star."
A recent afternoon marked a new
epoch In the agricultural life of Ontario. The scene was the beautiful
farm of Mr. J. W. Might, ln Toronto
township, York County, four miles
back from the lake shore, northeast
, of Port Credit. At three o'clock in
the afternoon Mrs. Beck, who' Is
never far away from her husband as
he drives ahead In his work, turned
' a switch, and Niagara energy was
thrown into the farm yard. Wheels
1 turned as motors sang little songs,
I and the latest application of the
' wonder fluid which man can make,
I but cannot understand, was made to
the oldest of all industries, agrlcul-
j ture.
; Feeders had been led from the
transmission line into the farm yard
I of Mr. Might. On the gangway lead-
! Ing into the big barn, a motor uf
j twenty-five horse-power, encased ln
j a wooden covering and mounted on
a wagon box stood ready for business.
Into it some of the power lines ran.
Others found their way into a huge
5000-pound motor truck, loaded to
the spilling point with all manner
of machines, from the circular saw
to the washing machine. Mr. and
Mrs. Beck, Hon. James Duff, minister
of agriculture, and several others
were on hand. In the moment of this,
his latest success, Mr. Beck turned
to his wife, and It was her hand that
touched the switch. Instantly the
big motor whistled softly, and the
belts leading itno the dim interior of
the barn began to slide smoothly,
and more and more swiftly. From
within began the roar of a separator,
and clouds of dust showed that separator was accomplihsing the same
ends and with quite the usual thoroughness.
A two horse-power motor will do
everything a farmer requires except
thresh and chop feed. For these a
larger motor is required, and it will
be an easy matter for several farmers
to buy one of these in common, and
pass it around among themselves as
it is required. A motor generating
one-half a horse-power will do everything required about the house, cook,
heat irons, turn a washing machine,
etc., and one of these motors costs
only about $35. The larger motors
run up to about $100, according to
the power generated.
"Gas or steam means only power,"
said Mr. Beck. "Electricity means
power, light, and heat. Remember
this too, the government has no place
In this for your money, save for tbe
financing of tbe Installation. We
j make no profits and expect none.
This is co-operation pure and
'simple."
It was interesting   to watch    the
! faces of Mr. Beck's audlenm as be
] went on with this story, telling how
he had seen electricity uued ln Ger-
1 many and Belgium, how one    two-
horse-power motor operating a single
! shaft  running  across  the  barn   did
almost everything.    A touch of the
I lever and  troughs and  tanks filled
with  water  as by magic,    anotner
I touch    and the hopper, filled with
grain,    began    its work.    An hour
1 later and twelve bushels were ready 1
to go to the cattle.    Still    another
touch and the circular saw began to
buzz.    Logs cut into right    lengths
I went under the chopper and a week's
I supply of firewood was ready in the
morning.   Harvest time saw a motor
such as the one before them running
I their separators, quietly, without attention or danger of fire. Above the
separator  a  500-watt   electric   light
made the interior of the barn bright
enough to work all night by, while
wires, properly Installed carried light
to the darkest corners without fear
of a blaze.
Inside the house the good wife
worked over her electric stove or
with her electric Iron smoothed the
clothes, washed in an electrically-
driven washing machine, such as
their sisters in the city used." The
churn turned with a touch of a lever,
while at night electric lights did
away with the work of lamp cleaning
and lighted the space of road In front
of the gate.
"And you know exactly what It
will cost you in advance. The government Is in partnership with you,"
said the Apostle of Electricity.
Meantime, a phlegmatic Holstein
cow had consented to allow herself j
to be used for demonstration. She
had not much faith In it, but was
willing to do all she could by standing still and rubbing her nose on
anyone who came near enough. Niagara Falls was attached to her by
means of a little fussy engine and a
collection of splayed-out rubber
tubes ending in rubber-lined cylinders connecting with the udder. It
was not a very great success from a
dairyman's standpoint, the yield of
milk being small from such a big
cow. Laymen were Informed, however, that this was probably due to
nervousness on the cow's part. She
had concealed It well, but no cow
takes kindly to being pumped by
machinery, at first. Everything
worked well, silently, swiftly and
efficiently. Best of all, those interested were told exactly what everything would cost. There is to be
nothing of an experimental nature
about the application of electricity tol
agriculture. The Hydro-Electric!
Commislson have been wroklng fori
a year, just on the details of the'
scheme, ahd they are going belora!

DUMP CAR FELL ON WORKMAN.
Victim  Was Horribly  Crushed  and
Died at Hospital in Half an
Hour.
(From The British Columbian.)
John Severson, aged 25 years, was
fatally Injured this morning, shortly after 9 o'clock when a chain, suspending a neavy dump car above
a track built on the top of Gilley
Bros, bunkers broke, and the dump
car fell, crushing in the man's side.
The injured man was removed to
the Boyal Columbia hospital immediately on a stretcher laid across the
rear seat of an automobile belonging
to the firm, but in spite of the efforts
of the attendants he died within half
an hour after the accident had occurred.
The dump car was being hoisted
by means of a derrick ln order that
it could be turned, on the single
track on the superstructure of the
bunkers when the chain broke. This
same feat has been accomplished
without accident, several times daily
but just as Severson passed beneath,
the links parted. The whole right
side of the man's body was horribly
crushed. He was lowered to the
ground from the high superstructure by means of a sling, and rushed
to the hospital.
Severson was unmarried, and lived
with his brother, who also works in
the city. Immediately the accident
had taken place, the injured man's
brother was notified and arrived at
the bedised in time to be with his
brother during the ebbing moments
of his life. The dead man had been
employed at Gilley Bros, for six
years and was held in the highest
esteem both by his employers and
fellow workmen. He was a Norwegian by birth.

RICHMOND ROADS.
A letter has been received this
week by Dr. A. A'. King, Ladner, in
answer to his letter to the clerk of
Richmond Council with respect to the
widening of No. 5 and No. 9 roads to
eighty feet in that municipality. The
letter was to the effect that while
the council are entirely in favor of
widening No. 9 road from 66 feet to
80 feet. They are of opinion that as
the by-law only calls for the former,
they have no power to extend to the
latter width except on receiving a
petition from the property *owners
along the said road, upon which the
council would be pleased to have the
by-law so amended as to admit of the
increased width.

A FALL POET ON  DUCKS.
Experiences'during the opening of
the duck shooting season in Delta
have Inspired one sportsman to give
vent to his feelings in the following
verses:
We  were  all  pretty  keen  on  duck
shooting,
Went off for the gulf in a bunch;
We left the old port at 3:30
To shoot every duck before lunch.
We started in rain and In darkness
To be ready by morning's hue,
With decoys, ammunition and guns,
And a bottle of Rhoderlck Dhu.
We placed our decoys ln the water,
Made blinds our presence to hide,
And waited the dawn of the morning,
And the ducks and the teal besides.
We waited for fully ten minutes,
Excited, expectant and grim���
A quack on our left plainly told us
The flight was about to begin.
They came���bang!  bang!  was their 1
welcome,
Bang!  bang! went the gun again,
And peppery words from the sportsmen
As they shot and bang-banged In
vain.
"Gee whiz! What the deuce Is the
matter?
Wo never shot Tike this before���
Look out! There they come In their
myriads"���
They did,  and were met with  a
roar,
Shut up, pet down, they are coming,
From   the   front  and  the  left  to
their fate-
Keep   still,    dont   move���are   you
ready?
For once try and hold your gun
straight.
With   a  crash   and  a  bang,   and   a
bang-bang;
"Get any?    Why certainly not!
I wish I'd got my own gun here������
What's the use of No. 6 shot?"
"Gee   whiz!    This   Is   getting   too
fierce,
I can't even hit when they sit;
I believe we should do much better
If we stretched our legs a bit."
So we stretched and prayed for assistance,
And the birds flew Into tbe shot;
And after involuntary bathing,
We got quite a nice little lot.

GRAIN  RATES.
REGINA, Sask., Sept. 7.���On his
return from Winnipeg, Hon. W. R.
Motherwell, minister of agriculture,
stated that one of the matters he
had taken up was the question of
the railways reverting to the emergency rate on grain to Duluth, which
was in force from Saskatchewan
last season. He found, however, the
railways were already contemplating
such action and that witb the close
of navigation there w*m every likelihood that the rate to Duluth from
Saskatchewan points would be the
same as from Fort William.

The matter has J>een mooted In
lacrosse circles here of forming a
team to represent. Delta, chosen from
the Beavers, Maple Leafs and Shamrocks, to compete In the B.C. Senior
Amateur Lacrosse League, next season. The Idea Is not to disband
these clubs, as the effect should be
rather to promote friendly relations,
but lt is thought that a combined
team could be selected worthy of
competing with the best amateur lacrosse clubs ln the province.
One of the best fall fairs in the
Fraser Valley is that of the Delta
Agricultural Society, and so far as
horses and sheep are concerned,
probably the best in the province.
The dates of the show are September

Mr. A. de R. Taylor for his Indefatigable efforts as secretary ia promoting the success of tbe fair.

STEVESTON NEWS.
STEVESTON, B.C., Sept. 7.���The
canneries running here are doing
but poor business now, and prices
remain about the same as last week,
namely 40 cents for sockeyes, thirty
cents for cohoes and five cents a lb.
for springs. These are the prices
being paid at the Imperial cannery,:
but at least one cannery, the Richmond, ls paying thirty-five cents for
cohoes. i
It is stated here that Alaskan and
other American salmon ls being
dumped Into Canada, chiefly in Toronto and the East. The Americans
are selling there canned cohoes at
$4.60 a case, duty paid, while the
price generally ln British Columbia
Is $7.25 per case.
Four offenders against the game
laws were prosecuted by the provincial game warden on Thursday at
Steveston, being found shooting
ducks on Lulu Island on Sunday, the
day before the opening of the season.
Two of these transgressors who gave
wrong addresses were fined $15 each
with costs, one $10 with costs and
one $7,50 with costs.
The recent renewal of rain has
done considerable damage to the
oats on Lulu Island and delayed
threshing in some sections. Several
farmers, however, Including J. Gllmour, Reeve Bridge and others, have
got ahead of the game by putting on
a double gang and rushing the
threshing through before the rain
could do much damage. In such
caess the crops are heavy and of good
quality.
The potatoe canker has more or
less affected some sections of Lulu
island, but not to the extent apparent
elsewhere. Nevertheless, the further extension of the blight must
seriously affect prices. |
A meeting of the Steveston Social
Club will be held on Monday evening,
September 9th, when a varied programme for the winter season will

weekly dances, debates, whist drives,
concerts, basketball games und amateur theatricals will be among the attractions offered for lhe winter

This I.s Summing up of Reports from
All Points in Wheat Provinces.
WINNIPEG, Sept. 12.���Western
Canada's crop is in good shape. From
reports in districts covering the
length and breadth of the land there
is a showing that wheat cutting will
be generally completed by the end
of the week and that at least 75 aa*
cent of the oats and barley will al-o
be in the sheaf. Good progress is also
being  made  with  flax.
Tn some 25 per cent of the districts heard from threshing has al-
roady commenced. With a continuation of good weather it will be t-eti-
eral on Monday next. The yle'l.i cf
wheat where threshing has started,
is reported at from 20 to 30 bushels
to the acre and it is all reported to
bt ot contract grades.
Slight damage is reported .rooj
5" per cent of the districts huaid
from, from high winds splitting out
standing grain, but as the gro.tter
part of the grain was already cut
prior to the storms of Friday last
the damage was much less than lt
would otherwise have been. In a
few Insignificant instances damage
from sprouting In the sheaf is reported.
On the whole the present outlook
ls most encouraging. There Is In
the West a vast amount of grain
and it promises, all of lt, to grade
high. All reports have a confident,
optimistic undertone that speaks
well for the prospects of this year's
harvest.
