HOW TO PREPARE SHEAF
GRAIN AND GRASS SAM
PLES FOR EXHI
BITION. ': j
The importance of an early sclcc-y
tlon.of samples of small grains for
the sheaf display at the National. Corn
exposition, to be held at Omaha Dc
cember 9 to 19, 1908, should not 'be
overlooked by the intending exhibi
tors. The greatest care should be
observed in making these selections;
only the very choice straws carrying
fully developed heads. Cut these off
close to the ground with a .sharp
knife. When large bundles have been
secured sort theni over for uniform,
typical heads and uniform length and
perfectness of straw.
The process of curing is the next
feature of the wprk. Spread the se
lected samples out on the grass to
bleach and cure in the sunshine, be
ing .careful to keep them guarded
from all moisture, rain or dew, until
they arc well cured, which may re
quire from one to three days de
pending upon the weather andf the
ripeness of the straw when cut.- As
soon as they arc in a satisfactory .con
dition of outdoor treatment strip, the
blades off carefully, so as not to
bruise or break the straw.
The reserve samples mr.y now b
collected into small bundles, not to
exceed one to two inches in diameter,
tic them with muslin or other, soft
string and hang up in a light,, dry
room, heads down, and let them hang
until perfectly cured. These smaller
bundles arc usually consolidated 'into
larger bundles or sheaves of approxi
mately four inches in diameter and
tied with ribbon; one band just be
low the heads, one tat the center of
the sheaf and one "four to six inches"
from the butt of -sheaf. I
These sheave? may be loosely wrap
j.cd with cheese cloth. Some of Hig
hest expert exhibitors let the small
bundles hang from the coiling until
ready to exhibit, then put tlicm into
h'.rger shcayes, b'clicving Hliat the
hanging position is. tjc; .afest and
best for retaining the shape of head
and making a bright, attractive ex
hibit. All samiples for hQ - djchibjtion '..
should be kept free from dust and
away from mice and the house fly, as
all these arc damaging to exhibition
In grasses the reverse condition
applies in their preparation for show.
All samples when gathered should be
cured in a dry, dark place, and be
excluded from the liglitt and air by
wrapping and storing where they will
return their natural green and fresh

Horticulturists have for many years
practiced various methods to induce
fruitfulness and with some degree of
success. All. these methods, as gird
ling the trunk, root pruning, and sum
mer pruning of the branches tempo
rarily check the growth of the tree,
and the consequent slow growth in
duces the formation of fruit buds. It
is well known that the buds which
produce fruit in any particular season
were formed the season before, and
their formation is believed to begin
early in the growing season. This be
ing true, the time is now at hand for
such work; if put off much later in the
season, it will be too latc as the time
for the formation of fruit buds for
next year's crop will soon be passed.
By root pruning is meant that a
small portion of the roots arc cut off,
and the operation may be pcrformc I
with a spade or in any way which H
best suited to individual needs. "
Summer pruning takes the place of
the annual whiter pruning, and is ths
same in most respects, except that it j
is done in June .
Girdling or ringing consists in re I
-movihg-a ring of bark from the trun'c
or larger limbs. This ring is some
times two inches- or more in width;
all jthe bark within this space is re
moved, thus exposing the" wood. Tim
method of checking growth, though
often employed, is rather drastic, and
should l:e us.cd with caution. A more
rational method is to girdle the branch
or trunk by cutting through to the
wpd by making one continuous cut
and not removing any of the bark.
Some authorities state, that the
proper time to check the cgrowth l
a tree in order to induce the forma
tion of fruit buds is at the time whe.i :
ktjhs feark begins.' to., sot.' cm the new
growth. As this is rather a. delicate
feature to determine the average per
sons will make no mistake if he does
this work any time in June,
