There has been, since 1915, an
estimated decrease in the world's
supply of meat-producing animals of 115,005,000. Cattle have
been decreased by 28,000,000,
sheep by 54,000,000 and swine by
32.425.000.
Canadian herds have been diminishing since 1914. Milch cows
have been lepsened by 31,000,
other cattle by 38,000, sheep by
49,000 and swine by 921.000.
During the same period the U.S.
increased its supply of cattle hy

6.000,000.
It is estimated that after, the

The 1917 grain crop of Western
Canada will net the farmers more
than $600,000,000, according to
figures given out in financial
circles. The figures are based
on the following estimates:
Wheat,$400.000,000; oats,$150,-
000,000; barley, $36,000,000; IIax,
$20,000,000.
In addition to the large amount
of money farmers will get for
their grain crops, everything the
farmer has to sell is bringing a
higher price this year than in
any previous year.
