from Crop Experts.
Most of t!u stjiti's of the union felt
the unusually severe winter of 190(1-7,
and the effects of the succeeding late
Bpring were everywhere apparent.
Corn was planted two and sometimes
three times, the winter wheat suffered
and generally there was a nervous
feeling as the retarded growth was in
evidence. From tho Dakotas to Texas
the feeling of dread existed, and the
fears were; entertained that tho crop of
corn, wheat, oats and barley would
be a distinct failure. How far this was
tho case fs best left to those who
passed through the experience. Natur-
ally the same conditions were preva-
lent. through the province of Manl-
a most careful purveyor of news, writ-
ing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, says:

This means that the average price to the
farmer for contract wheat all over the

The farmers have been looking for the

coming forward from the elevators and a

hands of the farmers. This nearly all

and it was necessary to finish the
journey in a buggy. So he took a
friend with him and started out.
After traversing several miles of
sparsely settled country, they came
upon a farmer plowing corn on the
side of a hill. The planter, wishing
of an admittedly unfavorable season
should not be allowed to sink out -if
slight at u timo when returns from agri-
cultural activity in the west ure being
ansiously awaited. These figures do not
take account of the lower grades, of
which there were 131 cars. More than one-
third of these contained milling wheat,
which would remunerate the farmer at
the rale of 93c per bushel cm the basis
of to-day's closing figures. The balance
consisted of low grade stulT which would
show great "spreads" in prices.
"The approximate value of the two
days' receipts of wheat, however, would
tee more than $4iM),0c)0 calculating the ca-
pacity of a car at 1.000 bushels and elim-
inating the cost of freight anil handling.
As many of the modern cars contain
more than 1,000 bushels and as the freight
rate to l'ort William is less than 15c
per cwt. on most of the wheat wldch Is
now coming forward, the estimate of
Ji'H'.ooo is low. The circulation of $200,-
000 per day among the farmers will not
continue for the whole year, of course,
t>ut that figure Is like ly to be exceeded
before the present rush of wheat to the
market abates. The conversion of the
crop into money may be said to be pro-
ceeding In a most satisfactory way and
there Is no doubt that millions of dollars
will have gone into the pockets of the
farmers by the time navigation on the
lakes closes. F.ven then only a small
proportion of the wheat will ha\ e come
out. Kxperience has shown that the rail-
ways do not carry very much of the
wheat to the I.ake Superior ports before
ihe freeze-up comes, and the propor-
tion will probably be smaller than usual
tlds year on account of the lateness of
the thrashing season.
"On the whole the prospect Is a moat
cheerful one. the likelihood being that
the satisfactory returns for the pest few
days will be greatly exceeded in the com-
ing six or seven weeks. The fact that
wheat of any kind is bound to tiring a re-
munerative price tills season Is tho com-
forting feature of the situation and there
