Bert Huffman, formerly of Union county, is farming his land east of Calgary thrs year. Conductors Jack
Smith and Len McCrary, of the 0. R. & N. will begin work on a section near Strafchmore this spring.
Wheat raising on the Canadian Pacific tract is not an experiment now. Miles Parrel, a farmer near Calgary har
vested 46 1-2 bushels of winter wheat per acre on a full half section of new land.
Yields from 50 to 60 bushels have been commonly repotted all through the new settlement in the Bow River Val
ley. One crop pays for the land.. A. E Burnett harvested 60 1-2 bushels of No. 1 winter wheat on new land east of
Calgary in 1908. Over 160 bushels of oats were grown on hnd adjoining the above tract. Spring wheat matures in
120 days owing to the long hours of sunshine in ihe growing season.
