July 18, 1912

The crops do not seem to have suffered much through the hail storm of last week, and J. H. Benbow, proud of his methods of culture, reports his spring wheat as looking splendid, out in head already, and far in advance of other crops.

Railway development is proceeding apace in this neighborhood.  The surveyors for the double-tracki9ng of the C.P.R. are already in town.  The distance between Calgary and the coast will be considerably shortened, and as many dangerous curves and steep embankments will be avoided the route will be safer and quicker.

     Investigations prove that there are three railway survey parties at work near Cochrane, the C.N.R., the C.P.R., and the G.N.R.

Haying has already begun in this neighborhood.  The crops are very heavy, and all that is necessary now being sunshine, and this applies also to the grain.
