    ALBERTA IS GOOD
FARMING COUNTRY
CluroBholm, Alberta, N. W. T.,June
l! Kditor ulacier: As I have bad
many inquiries as to what kind of a
country this 1h, will try to give ray
opinion of it. It la all or more than
I expected to And, with as stood pros
pect of crops as I ever saw. lloth
fall and spring wheat are looking flue.
People have only been sowing winter
wheat for a couple of years, and if it
will stand what they say it did Inxt
winter and look like it does now it is
surely all right. It got down to forty
below at one time lant winter and none
of the grain froze out.
It is about a month later here than
la Whhco couty.and beluga new coun
try, everything is high, being on an
average of about half higher than
down there.
Am located about eight miles from
two good little towns, Clareholm and
Leavings, on the Colging and ivimon
ton branch of the Canadian Pacific
road, both of them being about three
years old and having about Ave bun
dred population each, and growing
fast. An) six and a half miles from
the railroad, and have a half section
of land.
Am breaking sod at the present
writing and have about fifteen asres
broken. Will get fifty or sixty ready
for winter sowing, as one can plow all
summer, but can not do much as grain
is so high hore at present. Have had
on a average of one day's rain a week
since we got bere. Am lnylng oil to
day on account of rain. Every one is
breaking hore now. rive or six steam
plow outfits came in to Claresholm
this spring and the average of winter
wheat will be doubled this fall.
Would not advise any one to come
to this place unless they have some
capital to buy railroad land, as home
steads are all gone that are any good
They are going forty and fifty miles
east of this point now to get free gov
eminent lauds. Railroad land is sell
ing for live and ten dollars per acre
here In six payments; one-sixth down
and five payments at six per cent, in
terest, and by going further from the
railroad can be gotten ror three dol
lars per acre. There is a great rush
for land, anil hardly a day passes that
some one does not come to our place
hunting land.
There Is a good deal of game here,
that is ducks, geese and prairie
chickens, l'atber has killed a lynx.
catching it on the prairie and killing
it with a rock, lliree of us ran down
a coyote Monday. We were horse
back and ran him for three miles.
finally overhauled him and threw a
hammer and knocked him over, while
the dogs held until 1 tin lulled him.
There is plenty of trout in the
streams. We caught seventy one da;
liiHt week in two hours. We have to
IIhIi here on week days, as there is a
Sunday law and the mounted police
are always around when they are not
looker tor.
This has Ixton one of the greatest
stock countries on the face of the
earth. They are having the spring
round up now and came in near our
place last night. There are about
sixty men in the outfit and the prairie
is black around here with cattle, Ilul
the days of the big cattle companies
are over in this section, as the coun
try is getting pretty well fenced up.
One company ha) two townships
fenced up on pasture, and they stilp
cattle by the train load from this point.
The only ones who say this country is
. no good for farming are the stockmen,
but who could blame thorn?
We are in a settlement of people
mostly from the Htates, being people
from Washington. Oregon, Dakota
and Minnesota, with a few Canadiaus.
The country is Bottling with a good
class of people, most of them having
some capital. Will close for this time
with a promise of more next time.

The Woodmen of the World's camps
of tlio states of Oregon and Washing
ton are anxious to increaso the mem
bership in the two status NX) each, be

see which state reaches the limit first.
II. L. Day, general oragnizer for Or

with the prospective memliers of the

Worbl-nltle Fame For Fruit.
Postal Record.
Oregon's fame as a fruit-producing
state lias spreai from one end of the
world to the other. Oregon apple
are sold iu all the leading cities in
the United States and Canada, as well
as in Kurope and other parts of the
world. Hood liiver apples ate iu spe
cial demand. One of our ex-carriers
of Portland and former secretary of
llrauch H'2, A. 1. Mason, owns quite a
large apple orchard in Hood River
and will undoubtedly fBvor the con
vention with a few boxes of the choi
cest varieties.
Found a Cure for Dyspepsia.
Mrs. S. Lindsay, of Fort William,
Ontariu, Canada, who has suffered
quite a number of years from dyspepsia
and rjrnt pains in the stomach, was
advised by her druggist to take Cham
berlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets
She did so and says, "I rind that they
have done me a great deal of good. 1
have never had any siiU'ering since 1
begun using them." If troubled with
dysK'psla or indigestion why not take
these Tablets, get well and stay well?

Good Apple Crop Expected,
Regarding the outlook for apples
this year, the Chicago Packer ventures
the following forecast
"Most growers figure that this is an
off vear for New lork apples on ac
count of the remarkably heavy yield
in that state last year. For the past
three issues the Packer has given
views of some of the principal growers
in the leading growing sections of
New York state, and while these esti
mates of this year's outlook all agree
that there will be a very short crop of
Baldwins, yet they do not state what
percentage of the trees in the commer
cial orchards of that state are in liahl
wins, so that in making up an esti
mate for the state as a whole, it is
rather gpculative to say just now what
the New York crop will amount to.
Most correspondents estimate that the
Baldwins will have only one-fourth
crop. Other varieties are reported to
have a half to a full crop, so that tal:
lug the state as a whole, we may rea
sonably expect about a two-thirds crop
from all varieties except Iiuldwins,nd
a uuarter croi) of Baldwins.
"Of course, in the next few weeks
there may be some changes iu these
conditions, but from a careful reading
of the renorta which have been printed
In the Packer from our New York state
correspondents, the above estimate of
conditions and nrosnec.ts seems to
cover the situation conservatively.
"In the New Kngland states, prin
olnaliv Maine. Vermont and Massachu
setts, reports show that all varieties
show full bloom except Haldwius, so
that presuming llaldwju trees are In
the majority in those sections, it Ik
reasonable to assume that the New
England crop, taken as a whole, w ill
be considerably below the average.
"In West Virginia and Virginia re
ports show that the propsocts are that
these states will produce from 00 to 7.'i
ner cent of a full cron.
"Pennsylvania will have a fair yield
of apples, but nothing like the crop of
last year.
"The reports from Michigan are un
Iformlv of a cheerful tone and indi
cate one of the greatest crops that
state has ever had.
"In the Middle States Indiana, 11
linols. Ohio, and Kentucky the out
look is not so bright, although by no
means discouraging. Indiana win
have a fair yield, on an avorage, Mil
uois runs very unevenly, many points
reporting a decidod increase over
11)04, while others report prospects not
so good. On the whole, indications
point to an Increased yield over last
year. Ohio will have a fair crop in
sprayed orchards. Heavy raius and
scab played havoc with tho fruit espe
cially in tho southern part of the state.
Indications point to about as heavy a
yield in Kentucky as last year.
A few weeks ago some very gloomy
reports respecting Missouri's outlook
were giveu out, but later views re
ceived from all parts of the state im
part a different oomploxtou to the sit-
nation. It seems safe to say that there
will be a fair crop, taking tho whole
as a whole. Prof. Whltten 'a latest es-
tmate of 25 to Xi per cunt of a full
crop seems likely to be near the mark.
Kansas reports differ widely iu the
several sections, but on the avorage
Indicate a full crop. Arkansas' yield
will be fully up to last year and per
haps will go beyond It. The outlook
Iu the territories is quite gloomy and
they may be safely eliminated from
the calculation. Indications point to
a full crop for Nebraska. Iowa's pros
pect Is also rosy.
Colorado s outlook Is tine. With
the new orchards coming into bearing
this season there will be a very sub
stantial lncroase over last year's yield.
On the coast the reports show quite
a divergence of opinion, but it is pro
bably a safe estimate to place the crop
at an average. "
Will lie Ilunner Wheat Crop.
On the basis of the government's re
port ou the acreage and condition, the
winter wheat crop of UKlf will amount
to-4i'J,000,lXH) bushels.
Ibis is far larger than any crop
gathered along to this time. The
winter wheat yield of 11)01 was 'X-
1X10,000 butnhels and that of l'.KU was
Klil.OOO.OOO. The largest winter wheat
crop ever harvested to the present
day was in l'JOA which was 111,000,-
000 bushels, or 4i),tKK),(HH) under that
promised for this year. Prom the
present outlook tho aggregate wheat
yield of 1IKI0 will break all records.
The condition of spring wheat, des
pite the backward weather throughout
much of the producing states is fully
up to the average of recent years. The
aggregate wheat harvest of tho past
few years was 7IH,000,l 00 biiHhels In
I'.KU, ti70 UK) 000 in ('37,000,000 in
I'.kki, and on-.: ,ooo, ooo in l'.KU.

much liotterthis year than ever before

round up.
Wheat is not the most valuable of
the country's grain crops. Com has
that distinction. Tho value of the
1004 yield of wheat, as estimated on
the farm by the department of agri
culture for Decemlsir M of that year,
was (f)10,0tXI,lKX, while the com 'crop
was worth 1,OH7,000,000 at that date.
Huge Task.
It was a huge task to underliiUe the
cure of such a bad case of kidney dis
ease, as that of C. F. Collier, of Chero
kee, Iu., but Klectric Bitters did it. lie
writes: ".My kidneys were so far gone,
I could not sit on' a chair without a
cushion; and sull'ered front dreadful
backache, headache and depression, hi
Kleelric Fitters, however, I found a
cure and by them was restored to per
feet health. 1 recommend this great
tonic medicine to all wilh weak kid
