WHAT WINTER WHEAT IS DOING
FOR SOUTHERN ALBERTA.
6plendid Crops on the Former Ranr'n-
Ing Plains of Canadian West.
That portion of the country in Wes-
tern Canada formerly recognized af
ranching country has developed into
one of the best winter wheat districts
in the continent. Yields are quoted
running from 30 to 60 bushels to the
acre, and giving a return to the farmer
of from $25 to $50 per acre. These
lands are now selling at from $12 to
$20 per acre, and pay well at tha*
figure. H. Howes of Magrath, Alberta
Western Canada, had 50 acres of lanu
in wheat, which averaged 45 bushels
to the acre; his yield of oats was 35
bushels. The value to him per acre
of wheat was $35.00. J. F. Haycock
of the same place, says: "I had 65
acres of wheat, 35 acres of oats and
four acres of barley. My average yield
of oats to the acre was 80 bushels;
wheat—winter—60 bushels and red
fyfe, 33 bushels, and barley, 50 bush-
els. The value to me per acre was,
wheat. $28.00; oats, $32.00, and bar-
ley, $24.00." J. F. Bradshaw of Ma-
grath, had 1,030 acres of wheat in crop
that averaged 39V6 bushels to the
acre, his oats, 32 bushels; barley, 53
bushels. He threshed 31,000 bushels
of wheat from 540 acres. He also had
250 tons of sugar beets from 25 acres
worth $5.62 % per ton. W. S. Sherod,
of Lethbridge, says: "I came to Leth-
bridge from Souris, North Dakota, it/
April, 1907, having purchased 900
acres of land in this district last fall.
I had 128 acres of Alberta Red winter
wheat which was put in on breaking in
the fall of 1906, which yielded 41^
bushels to the acre, for which I re-
ceived 87 cents per bushel, which
paid me $36.30 per acre. I had 190
acres "stubbled in" that is disced
in on the stubble, which yielded 22
bushels to the acre at 87 Vfc cents per
bushel, which paid me $19.25 to the
acre. I also had 350 acres of strictly
volunteer crop, which it was intended
to prepare in the summer; but when it
was seen that it was a good looking
crop, it was allowed to go. From this
we threshed 15 bushels to the acre,
which paid us at the rate of 87 V6
cents per bushel or $13.12 per acre.
Our total crop yielded us 14,742 bush-
els of first-class wheat. Taking it as
a whole, I consider that I had a first-
class crop all through; and, taking in-
to consideration the fact of part of the
crop having been "stubbled in," and
part strictly volunteer (which was
never touched at all until the binder
was put into it), I consider I had a
heavy crop. I might say that I was
in North Dakota five years, and I
never grew as heavy a crop during
that time. This is the 25th day of
November, and my teams are still
ploughing, and, from the appearance
of the weather, will be for some time
yet." R. W. Bradshaw of Magrath,
says: "I had this year 400 acres in
crop, viz.: 200 acres of wheat and 200
acres in oats. My average yield of
oats to the acre was 50 bushels, and
wheat, 22Vz bushels. The value to me
per acre for wheat was $19.00, and
oats, $17.00. The highest price ob-
tained by me this year or offered me
for my grain was for wheat 82 cents
per bushel, and $1.05 per hundred for
oats. I also had 100 tons of hay
worth $12.00 per ton, and will say my
wheat was all volunteer this year.
Lots of wheat is averaging from 50 to
60 bushels per acre on summer fallow,
and on new breaking, when the break-
ing was done early in the spring."
Writing from Spring Coulee, Alberta,
W. L. Thompson says: "I had this year
3,000 acres in crop, viz.: 2,000 acres of
wheat and 1,000 acres of oats. My
average yield of oats to the acre was
30 bushels and of wheat 35 bushels.
The value to me per acre for wheat
was $27.00 and for oats $15.00."

EVELYN NESBIT HAS INSTITUT-
ED DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS
Woman Bared Sin to the World to
Save Man From Whom She Now
Seeks Separation—Thaw Family
Take No Part
NEW YORK: Evelyn Xesbit Thaw
will institute proceedings for the an-
nulment of her marriage to Harry K.
Thaw. The action will be based on
the allegation that the defendant was
insane when the union was contract-
ed. Thaw purposes to defend the
suit. The papers in the case will be
served some time soon and an early
trial is expected. In. the meantime
the two by mutual agreement will re-
In official statements by counsel
for both parties was confirmed the
long suspected culmination in the
weaded lives of Stanford White's
slayer and the woman whose story
in his defense brought her an unhap-
py notoriety as wide as the reading
world. For weeks it had been gos-
siped that a divorce was imminent,
and then during Thaw's last trial
throughout which his wife stood
gamely by him, it wa3 pretty gener-
ally believed that whatever the out-
come for the prisoner, the two would
never again live together. These re-
ports were frequently based upon ru-
mored opposition to the young wo-
man on the part of the Thaw family.
In their statements, however, counsel
denied that Mrs. William Thaw, Har-
ry's mother, had taken any part in
the proposed separation.
ORCHARD PLEADS GUILTY
Man Who Killed Governor Steunen-
berg Changes Plea
CALDWELL, IDAHO: Harry Or-
chard before Judge Fremont Wood in
the district court was allowed to
withdraw his former plea of not guil-
ty. entered at his first arraignment,
and entered another plea of guilty
to the charge of murder in the first
degree. Judge Wood will sentence
Orchard on March 18.
Orchard pleaded guilty to having
killed former Governor Steunenberg
by the explosion of a dynamite bomb,
December 30, 1905. He was arrested
for the crime on January 2 and in
February confessed that he was hired
to kill Steunenberg by William D.
Haywood, secretary, Charles H. Moy-
er, president, and George A. Petti-
bone, honorary member of the West-
ern Federation of Miners. Haywood
and Pettibcne were tried in Boise
and set free. The case against Moy-
er was dismissed.
Judge Wood questioned Orchard as
to whether he fully understood the
status of the case, what it meant for
him to plead guilty and if he under-
stood that to plead guilty to the
charges in the indictment meant
pleading guilty to the charge of
first degree murder.
Perfectly calm, with no indication
of any emotion in face or voice, Or-
chard answered that he had gone
over the matter thoroughly and had
made up his mind definitely. Judge
Wood allowed the plea to be changed
and set date for sentence.
FOUR NEGROES LYNCHED
Series of Incendiary Fires For Pur
pose of Robbery, the Cause
MOBILE, A!LA.: Dave Pee, Tom
Ranston, two Jenkins brothers, all
negroes, were lynched at Vancleave.
Miss., 20 miles north of Biloxi,
Miss., by a mob of 30 men Tuesday
night. The men were in the custody
of Deputy Sheriff Evans of Jackson
county, en route to jail when the
mob overtook them.
A series of incendiary fires of
warehouses, causes losses In char-
coal, food stuffs and other supplies,
incensed the people of the vicinity.
The four negroes confessed their
guilt when the mob took them from
the deputy, and all four were hanged
to the limbs of trees by the side of
the road, where their bodies were
found the next morning
The immediate cause of the lynch-
ing was the burning of the ware-
house of Sam Byrd, when the incen-
diarists attempted to waylay and rob
Byrd, who conducts a store at Van-
cleave. Among the other warehouses
burned In the vicinity are those of W.

Hutchinson, Kanaaii, March 11, 1907.
Dr. C. F. Simmons, Snn Antonio. Tex.
Dear Sir:—I am in receipt of your favor of the 7th innt., and in answer
will say that 1 visited the Dr. C. F. Simmons ranch in Atascosa County.
Texas, on February 0th, 1907. I spent all day the 9th. and stayed all night
at the Brown ranch, then rode all day the 10th over the ranch, making two
full days of hard riding on horseback over this ranch.
I met Mr. Franks at Pleasanton. He has been foreman on this ranch
for 18 years, and knows every foot of the land. 1 told him I wanted to nee
the poorest land on the ranch, and he directed me how to go, and after
two days' hard riding I was fully satisfied with the proposition.
I shw three artesian wells, and was within three quarters of a mile of
the fourth one. 1 tasted the water at one of these wells and found it to be
all right. It was very warm, as 1 understand all artesian water is when it
first comes from the well. I am tatisfied this well is furnishing enough water
to irrigate 1,000 acres of land. It is in Headquarters pasture.
1 found the soil to be from a heavy black to a dark red, and all the
ehades between black and red. In fact, the soil looked good to ine, and I
believe 1 know good land when T see it.
I have read carefully the printed folders and examined the little book.
"New Home Sweet Home" with regard to the picture* printed in it, and
will sav they are all there just as natural ns life.
While 1 did not get to see all over the ranch, I saw enough to satisfy
me that it is all right. I saw the country from San Antonio via Corpue
Christi to Brownsville, but like the Simmons ranch better than anything
I saw in Texas.
1 have invested in this Simmons proposition and am now making prep-
arations to move there this fall, and 1 wish to sav to my friends ana all of
their friends, take out at? least OM application. Vou can't go wrong. It fo
the garden spot of the, United States.
Wishing you success, 1 remain.
