The heavy snowstorm of last week has fallen heavily on the stock-owners in this district and has aggravated the feed situation, which at the moment is at a premium, with the result that farmers are disposing of their cattle at a heavy sacrifice. Fine young animals were sold here ten days ago for $8 a head, which in normal times would have netted at least $35. Cattle have been hauled Into Saskatoon and sold in the market from one to one and a half cents a pound, and after defraying expenses the owners were not in a position to buy a meal. Hay is being shipped into this point but is the property of private owners and for home consumption only. Pigs and poultry are dying for want of feed, and the plight of the farmers is becoming desperate.

Being closely allied, the business men are as a consequence suffering. The much-heralded feed and oafs to be supplied by the government to farmers for fall plowing, in an attempt to combat the grasshopper menace, arrived after the snowstorm, and this is now carefully stored from the wintry blast in the pool elevator until spring. KELFIELD. The disappointing harvest and the fear of grasshoppers for the coming year have made the farmers of this district uneasy. Feed is scarce and horses have been moved up to the reserve near Cut Knife, but the problem of the cattle is harder.

Things are a little brighter, however, since news came that stock would be carried out or fodder brought in free from rail charges. A considerable number have taken homesteads in the north to which some will move In the spring while there are a few who are moving now. MRS. WATSON COLE CONQUEST. The funeral of Mrs.
