The Above Number of Men Will Be Needed for the Harvest in This District.
In an interview with C. J. Bell, immigration officer, he states that fifteen hundred men will be required to assist in garnering this season’s harvest in the districts surrounding Virden. He bases this estimate on his past experience, together with the numerous requests for help he has already received. Mr. Bell is devoting his whole time to this work and will do his best to supply the demand in three municipalities, viz. Wallace, Pipestone and Woodworth, although he finds some difficulty on account of the big demand for labor in the cities and towns. Farmers who require help should communicate with Mr. Bell at once, so that he may be able to send them Men when he has an opportunity. Another thing which employers of labor should keep in mind is the fact that assistance will be scarce, and wherever they have an opportunity of getting a man, they should take advantage of it, and not wait until the moment harvest starts.
