According to figures based on
the condition of crops up to the
end of the month of July the
census of statistics office estimates that the total yield of
wheat, oats, and barley for the
three western provinces of the
Dominion will this year reach the
total of 260,000,000 bushels. Of
this amount wheat represents
110,524,000 bushels, oats 120,-
358,000 bushels, and barley 28,-
597,000 bushels, making a total
of 259,479,000 bushels. . Of this
amount it is estimated that the
provinceof Manitoba will produce
131,550,000, or slightly more than
one half*, while Saskatchewan
and Alberta are credited with
87,850,000 and 40,079,000 bushels

Plow Woman
Author of "The Biography of a Prairie Girl."
COPYRIGHT.    1806.    BY     McCLURE,    PHILLIPS    Is    COMPANY. {
A story of the winning of the
west; of ihe ways and wiles of
the savage Sioux; of brave soldiers and daring frontiersmen;
of a stubborn hate coming down
from the civil war; of love tender, brave and true. A story with
a group of heroes���a tender
fledgeling from West Point; a
storekeeper with good nerve and
a big heart; an old evangelist
who dares all perils for the love
of God and man ; a young girl
with courage ample for hardship,
danger and renunciation of more
than life; an Uncapapa chieftain, degraded to wear the garb
of a squaw and herd with the
dogs, who shall seek to earn
again .the plumes of a warrior.
Two animals, even, a young bull
and a thoroughbred mare, shall
play daring parts of no mean
importance. He who reads shall
know that a tale of Dakota of
thirty years ago may kindle and
inspire as much as any story of
times remote; that the days of
romance are near, not far off.
The narrative begins quietly and
rises steadily in interest to a
climax as absorbing and inspiring as has been presented in any
novel or drama, old or new.
HUE coulee was a long scarlet
gusli In the brown level of the
Dakota prairie, for the sumach, dyed by the frosts of
the early autumn, covered its sides like
a cloth whose upper folds were thrown
far over the brinks of the winding ravine aud, southward, half way to the
new eottouwood shack of the Laucas-
ters. Near It, a dark band against the
flaming shrub, stretched the plowed
strip, narrow, bui widening with each
slow circuit of the team as the virgin
grass grown laud was turned by the
mold board to prepare for the corn
planting of the coming spring.
The sun, just risen, shone coldly upon the plain, and a wind, bearing with
It a hint of raw weather and whirling
snow, swept down the Missouri valley
from the north, marshaling Its front
hosts of gabbling ducks and honking
geese that were taking noisy flight
from a region soon to be buried aud
already bleak. Yet, with all the chill
iu the air, Ben aud Betty, the mules,
steamed as they toiled to aud fro and
lolled out their tongues with the
���warmth of their work aud the effort of
keeping straight lu the furrow, aud
Dallas, following in their wake with
the reins about her shoulders and the
horns of the plow in a steadying grasp,
took off ber slouch hat nt the turnings
to ba;e her damp forehead, drew the
sleeve of her close fitting jersey across
her face every lew moments, and at
last, to aid her in making better progress, as well as to cool her ankles,
brought the bottom of her skirt
through the waistband front and back
and walked in her red flannel petticoat. As she I raveled she looked skyward occasionally with a troubled face
and. resting but seldom, urged the
team forward. Clear weather aud sunshine would not long continue, and tbe
first tield on the claim must be turned
up and well harrowed before the opening of winter.
"Come, Ben. come." she called coax-
lngly to the nigh mule. "If you dou't
dig in now, how d' you expect to have
anything to eat next winter? Betty,
Betty, don't let Boll do It all; I'm
talking to you too. Come along, come
Ben and Belt.'.', lean and gray with
age. bent willingly to their labor at
the sound of her ."Ice. Their harnesses creaked a niouotonous complaint
with their renewed efforts; tbe colter
came whining behind Hum. As Dal-
las gently slapped the lines along their
bucks now and then to emphasize her
command clouds of dust which had
been gathered as mud in the buffalo
wallow where they went each evening
to roll ascended anil were blown away.
Faithfully they pulled, not even lifting an eyelid or Mapping au ear in
protest when Simon, the stray yearling bull that had adopted the claim
as its home and tagged Dallas everywhere, bellowed about their straining
legs or loitered at their very noses
and impeded their way.
. plowing was strange work to the patient mules and to Ihe girl who was
guiding them. To her the level prairie,
rank witli goldenrod. pink flowered
unarlweed and purple aster, wns a
'land of wondrous growth. For twenty
years her home had been an arid mesa
far to the south, where her father
captained Ihe caretakers of a spur
railroad track. The most western station house in Texas, standing amid
thorny mesqlllte, was her birthplace
aud that of her sister Marylyn. The
gray plateau across which the embankment led was their playground. There
they grew to womanhood under the
careful guidance of their frail northern born mother.
And then two casualties, coming
close upon each other, had suddenly
changed their life, Their father was
brought home oue night so maimed
and crushed by the wheels of a flat
car that he could never hope to take
up his work again, and while lie lay,
bandaged and broken, lighting to keep
the  soul   in   his   crippled   body,   their
, mother bravely yielded her life to a
lingering illness.
Many months later, when Evan Lancaster's wounds were at last healed,
Ben and Betty were unhitched from a
dirt laden scraper ou the siding and
put before a white topped prairie
schooner. Then the old section boss,
with his crutches beside him and his
daughters seated in the all but empty
box behind, said a husky farewell to
the men crowding around the wagon
and started the mules along the road
tbat led northward beside tlie rails.
I     He gave no backward glance at the
I wind   battered   house   where   he  had
��� brought an ailing bride.   Instead, eager
i to leave that plain of flying sand and
j scanty grasses, he drove the team
rapidly forward, bound for a country
where there were wells nnd not water
cars, where rain fell oftener and where
food, both for mnn and beast, could be
got easily from the earth. But Dallas, seated in the schooner's bed. her
weeping sister held soothingly against
her breast, watched, dry eyed, as a
mound by a giant mesquite faded
slowly from her sight nnd saw her
girlhood's home give way, as a lighthouse sinks behind a speeding vessel,
until only its gray sprinkled roof
showed through the scattered trees.
Then, after pillowing Marylyn's head
on a Navajo blanket beside the swashing water cask, she climbed forward to
the driver's seat and took the reins
from her father.
It was April, nnd when tlie mesa was
left far to rearward a world almost
forgotten by the Mled section boss
burst in new, gree liveliness upouliis
desert children. Towering pines and
spreading oaks, lush grass strewn
wilh blossoms, clear running streams
and gay feathered birds replaced
thirsty vegetation, salt lakes and hovering vultures. They traveled slowly,
each day bringing some fresh delight
to ear and eye, until one evening in the
waning Dakota summer they camped
beside a great crooked split in the prairie, on a flat peninsula made by a
sweeping westward bend of the muddy
M issouri.
Across Ihe river from their stopping
place, where an amber sou was going
down, the horizon was near. High
bluffs, like a huge windbreak, stood
upon the plain, leaving at their feet
only enough space for the whitewashed
frame buildings of Fort Branuon. But
to the east the paralleling bluffs lay at
a distance and broke their ridgeback
far up the scarlet coulee; from where,
southward, stretched a wide gap���ten
broad and gently undulating miles���
that ended at the slough studed base
of Medicine mountain. Even Lancaster, as he stood bareheaded under the
unclouded sky. looked about him upon
acres heavy with tangled grass and
weeds, and pleased with the evident
richness of the untouched ground and
wilh the sheltered situation of the
claim on the bend, swore that the
white topped schooner, with Its travel
stained crew of three, had found on
the yellow billows of tbat northern
prairie its permanent moorings at last.
The felling and hewing of cotton-
woods for the shack had occupied the
first few weeks that followed, citizen
carpenters from Branuon doing the
heavy cutting and lifting. But when
the little house stood, ils square log
room and dirt floor open to the sun,
Dallas performed her part of the building, and thatched tlie hip roof with
coarse grass from a meadow. Next,
the well was dug. ami the barn built
ns a lean-to, for ihe Lancaster! knew
little, but had heard much, about the
blizzards of the territory, Then, while
the elder girl covered Ihe slanting rafters over Ben and Belly's stalls, l be section boss hauled a scanty stock of hay
and provisions from Clark's, a cattle
camp and settlement to ihe northeast.
And finally, when shack and barn
were alike done. Dallas put the mules
to the end of an oak beam and took up
the task of plowing.
Now she was winding at a black mat
that was gradually growing upon the
brown carpet of the prairie. Up and
down she walked, her whiplash trailing behind her like a lively snake, her
hands striving to guide Ihe cleaving
share she followed, a look of deep content, despite all fear for bad weather,
upon her sun browned face.
But while working Ihe morning hours
slowly away she gave full attention to
the nodding mules and Ihe young bull
(Struggling at their head, she did not
ptop to watch the flocks winging by
[above her or to look off to where the
! 'plains fell  away  from   the pale azure
jline of the sky, so she failed to see, at
I [the middle of the long forenoon, a
Igroup of dark figures that came into
tight to the eastward and moved slow-
jly forward In the direction of the bend.
Toward noon, however, the furrows
were turned less regularly. Ben and
iBetty were so tired that they no longer
(drew evenly, but wavered from side to
! side.    Again  nnd again  the off mule
jerked the share out of ihe sod. Each
time Dallas patiently circled the team
and steeled it back into plat* again,
for ber anus were not strong enough
to swing the plow on the whiftletrees.
And each time Simon caught sight of
her red Annuel petticoat and faint
half awakened objections stirring beneath his sprouting horns came back
to challenge the goading color and
butt her crossly in Ihe skirts.
Just before dinner time aud halfway
of tbe plowed strip, going east. Dalla3
suddenly lifted her shoulders to tighten the slack of the reins, let go the
horns and brought Ihe mules to a
stand, and then as they halted with
lowered heads she caught sight of the
distant figures between her and the
horizon, recognizing them as men,
mounted and on foot with wagons
hanging at their rear.
She stepped to the head of the team
and shaded her eyes for a moment.
As she did so a part of the advancing
body detached Itself and approached
more swiftly, only to retreat again,
and the sun. climbing toward the center of the sky. flashed back upon bright
tfbjects carried at the front of the
"Soldiers for Branuon. I reckon." she
said aloud to Simon, who had given
over his butting and was thoughtfully
sniffing the air. "Still," she added,
"they're coming slow for soldiers."
Simon rubbed a red shoulder against
her arm confidingly and gave a defiant
sideways toss of the head.
"You know, don't you?" Dallas said,
scratching the star In his curly forehead. "Well. I would, too. if I had your
nose." She glanced nt the mules nnd
noted their lack of fright. "They're not
Indians anyhow." she went on, "so 1
guess we'll do some more plowing."
When the sun was so high thnt Simon's shadow made but a small
splotch upon the ground under him.
Dallas again stopped to look toward
the east. The men and horses had
traveled only a short distance and were
halted for their noon rest. Close to the
wagons the smoke of burning grass
twists was curling up from under the
midday meal.
"They ain't soldiers." she said decisively. "If they was they'd go on to the
ferry. And what can they be, headed
this way?" She took off her lint and
swung it at her father to attract his
attention, then pointed toward the meu
and teams.
Lnnenster wns.. #iting before the
shack, his crutches across his knees.
Seeing her signal, he got up and hobbled hastily around the corner, from
where he blinked into the gap. And,
unable to make out anything but a
blurred collection of moving things, he
called Marylyn from her dinner getting.
"Come an' see w'nt y' c'n make out
off thar on th' prairie, Mar'lyn!" he
cried. "Ef it's antelope, bring out th'
Marylyn hurried to him and followed
the direction of his gaze. "Why, it's
men. pa," she said.
"Certainly, it's men," he agreed pettishly, "but w'at kin' o' men? Thet's
w'at Ah kain't see."
Marylyn shook her head. Then, as
she bent her look inquiringly toward
the far away camp, a horseman suddenly left It nnd started on a gallop
toward them. "One's coming this way
fast!" she exclaimed and rushed back
into the shack for her bonnet.
Lancaster and his younger daughter
commented excitedly ns the rider approached. One troop of cavalry had
remained at Branuon throughout the
summer to give protection to the wives
and children of officers and enlisted
men. The remaining troops belonging
at the fort were away on Indiau service. They were to return soon, nnd the
section boss believed he saw in the
hearing traveler tbe herald of the
home coining force. Marylyn, however, was just as certain that Indians
were about to surround them and
hastily brought out the gun, but Dallas
wasted no time in conjectures. She
touched up Ben and Betty and finished
her round of the plowed land. Not till
the stranger was close did she stop nt
the eastern end of the field and wait
leaning on the cross bar.
He came forward In a sharp canter,
keeping a regular tap upon the flanks
of his mount with tbe end of a lariat
Ills careless seal In the saddle and the
fact that he wore no spurs told Dallas
that he was uot a trooper, though
across Ihe lessening distance now between them his dress of blue shirt
dark breeches and high boots, crowned
by a wide, soft hat was not unlike a
campaign uniform. At his approach
Ben and Betty became lazily Interested
and raised their long ears to the front
Simon advanced n little nnd took n determined stand beside Dallas, who
bung her lines on the plow handles
and prepared to greet the horseman.
The Instant he reached her be baited
abruptly lieslde the mules and bared
his bead. "Good morning," he tnld,
with cheery politeness, but bis swift
glance over team, plow and girl showed u surprise that was almost pity.
She saw his look, and the color swept
up under the tan of ber face. "How
d' }���' do?" she answered.
"I'm John Koiinsbury from Clark's,"
he began. "I've been supplying that
crowd back there with feed and grub
for a couple of weeks." Ue uodded toward tbe distant men and horses.
"May I ask���I ���I didn't know auy women folks had settled"���
She faced him squarely for a moment, and he met her eyes. Tbey were
gray, with tawny flecks, wide open,
clear nnd comprehending. "My father's Evan Lancaster," she explained.
"Lancaster���Oh, he's traded at my

"Mother's name was Marv Lynn."
she answered, her voice lowered. "So

"Aud yours?"
"Mine's Dallas. I was born in Tex

cantle and smiled. "I could 'a' guess
ed that," he declared.
Again she colored sensitively and
hastened to swing the team around un
til Betty stood in the furrow. "Mj
father's coming," she said.
Instantly Lounsbury was all regret,
for he saw that she had misunderstood
him. "Y'ou don't look Texas," he said
earnestly. "It's just tho name. Aud-
and 1 think Dallas Is pretty too."
The implied jest on her native stale
aid not do away with her displeasure
She nodded gravely and, turning, put
the lines about her shoulders. The
���jiulcs started.
"Now I've got you down on me," he
said penitently. "Honest, I didn't
She paid no heed.
He clapped on his hat, whipped his
horse and followed alongside, waiting
for her to look up. Opposite the shack
Lancaster ami his other daughter were
Itnnding by (he furrow. Here she
drew rein. "This is Marylyn," she
snld ns tbe storekeeper leaned to grasp
her father's hand.
Lounsbury ngnln lifted his lint nnd
looked down, long nnd admiringly,
upon the younger girl. Her fair hair,
framing in soft waves a pale, oval
face nnd ber blue eyes watching him
In some confusion, were strongly In

questions that followed close upon
each other he paid her prcttiness cou
staut aud wondering homage, and she,
noting the attention, retreated a little
aud was quiet and abashed.
"Who's you' party?" the elder man
demnuded, indicating the distant camp
with one crutch and leaning heavily
upon the other.
"Surveyors."  replied  Lounsbury.
"Surveyors!" There was alarm in
Lancaster's tone. He suddenly re
called how, slighting Dallas' advice.
he had delayed a trip to tbe land olHce
for the purpose of filing on the claim.
"W'at they doin'?"
"Something right In your line, sir
They're laying out a railroad."
"A railroad? You don' say! Ilow'll

"Why, right this way."
Lancaster caught the other by the

instrumental and vocal pieces,
and will probably include a quartette of some of our best singers,
and other interesting selections.
Some of the energetic ladies who
are assisting are providing some
interesting sideshows, to add to
the general variety of the enter-
tainment. All the row boats obtainable will be engaged plying
for hire at a low rate. Any owners of private craft (hand-propelled or otherwise) desirous of
helping the cause by lending
their boats for the occasion, are
asked to give their names to J.
Edmonds as soon as possible.
Any ladies can greatly assist the
refreshment committee by sending their names to Mrs. Power
with offers of either cake, sandwiches or candy. All of them
are invited to attend a meeting
at Mrs. Power's on Tuesday next
at 3 p. m. to make the final arrangements for the evening; r
good attendance is desired, as
several ladies will be required to
assist in various ways. A novel
feature of the entertainment will
be an auction sale of suppei
boxes, the bidding on which
usually causes considerable
merriment, besides adding a zest
to the supper.
