this fall.
Whrut Acreage I.arne.
Ordinarily a hay and dairy country.
Terrebonne's chief crop this tall will
bo wheat. This condition, bound to
bo more or less abnormal, has been
brought about by the addition of
new land, cloared for wheat produc
tion on account of tho present high
prices, but chiefly because ot the
early frost last fall which caught
the alfalfa and clover of the com
munity beforo tho sap had left th
stalks. This frost killed, perhaps
20per cent ot the total acrcago ot
olover and alfalfa, which accounts
for tho predominance ot wheat this
leading In tho production of
wheat will be Kvorltt Almcter, who
has 160 aoros of Irrigated land in
I that crop this year. Fifty acres have
previously been devoted to the grow-
j Ing of hay.

ulsa, must cut red tape, must be
promptly ready for every emergency,
must be governed by humanitarian
principles and quick decisions and
must not be hampered by the re
strictions of governmental machln
r. At tho same time the Ited Cross
Is the only relief agency formally
authorized by the government. Its
head Is the President of the United
States. Its accounts are audited by
the war department. It Is chartered

clares: "A large, well organized and ef

both n patriotic and humane sorvleo

Hod Cross subscriptions need not

A task ns great as that of gottlng

the contract between the stato and
the government for the reclamation
of lands contained In Segregation
list number 6.
The lands In list six aro an import

which are unclaimed when tho con

ment as general public lands.
A group of settlers on the pro

for an extension of tho contract.
