I'edee Harvest Notes.
As hay making is the chief mid
summer employment of our farm
ers, and there being an unusually
heavy yield of the product this
year, the past week witnessed a
great activity in the hay fields,
and every "hand" that w as able to
aid in the work was pressed into
service. Ideal weather made rapid
work possible and the close of the
week found a bumper crop of
choice hay safely under cover.
Some fall wheat has been cut
and by the close of the present
week most of the fall grain will he
in the shock. Most of the oat crop
will be ready to cut by the time
wheat is out of the way.
Potatoes are in fine condition
and a good yield is fully assured-
