STATE ENGINEER OF SOUTH DA
KOTA ISSUES RULES ABOUT
Pierre, S. D., July 31,-State Engineer
Samuel, H. Tea has made public the
following instructions to prospective
exhibitors at the international dry
farming exposition at Billings, Mont.,
Qctober 25-29, to be held In confection
with the fourth dry farming congress
at Billings, October 26-28. These in
structions have been prepared for the
guidance of South Ddkota farmers by
Mr. MeCain of Pennington county, who
is taking great interest in the prepa
rations for the coming congress, and
is actively securing the co-operation
of the farmers In his section of the
state in this work.
The following directions, while pro.
pared especially for South Dakota
farmers, contain valuable suggestions
for those in other states who are in
tending to send exhibits to the Bil
lings meeting. The circular follows:
"We want especially grain and for
age exhibits at this time. In selecting
samples for exhibition you may find
helpful the following hints or instruc
tions, always keeping in mind that
samples to make the best showing
must be cured away from the sun in a
dark but very dry atmosphere.
"I. Preparing sheaf grain exhibits.
"Select desirable heads just as the
grain enters the yellow ripe stage.
Choose well-filled heads that you think
wlfl make a good representative show
ing for' the type of grain which you
desire to exhibit. Cut the straw as
tibse to the ground as possible so you
cap ethibit full length of straw. MVika
up a sample of not to exceed 200 heads.
Tie with some soft cloth or narrow
ribbon just under the beaids, at buttse
and in. center 'of bundle and place in
darkened room to cure or ripen off.
When time permits careful work, untie l
the bundle, spread out, moisten straws
by sprinkling and carefully strip all
adhering leaves from the straws.
With a soft cloth polish each straw.
Now neatly tie up the bundle with
baby ribbon, or any narrow ribbon of
appropriate color, tying firmly, yet
neatly, in at least three of four places
under the bundle. See that all heads
are evenly placed, making one com
pact, circular bush. This Is very im
portant. Do not use string in tying
bundles of grain. The string is liable
to cut straws when they become quite
dry. See that each sample is neatly
and accurately labeled, wrap in sonme
thin, soft cloth and put where it will
be suspended in a free current of air,
but in the dry and out of the bleach
ing effect of the sun,
!.'2 Preparing shleaf exhibits of for
"Select the most leafy tvnes to he
found in, the field. Get best and most
erect in li dual specimen s obtainable.
"iut ethqyn as close to the ground as
possible Put in a loose bundle, not
more than four or five inches in diam
eter and loosely wrapping in newspa
per, or, better still, thin pprousý cloth;
hang in the dark to cure. To retain its
color, forage sample must be dried or
cured in the hark, away from the sun,
but with plenty of dry asi. When well
cured select the individual stems that
have retained the most leaves with
their leaf color and make up exhibit
bundles 31/2 to 4 Inches in diameter.
Do not strip a single leaf or branchlet
from the stem, since we are to show
for forage value and want to retain all
the leaves possible. Timothy, brome
grass, orchard grass, millet and other
grass samples are spoiled for forage
samples by stripping. Tie in a neat
manner with narrow ribbon, fastening
bundle securely in three or four places.
It is desirable to take samples giving
full length of stems at each cutting
of 'clover, alfalfa or other forages cut
more than once in the season. Give
(late of each cutting.
"A, collection of native grasses
should, in each instance, show seed or
head either in blossom or full seed,
with full length of straw 4r stem.
'13. Threshed grain samples.
"All threshed grain samples should
consist of at least one-half bushel, or
25 or 10 pounds..
"4. Samples of ear corn.
"If possible the ear corn samplesi
should be selected from the field and
not from the crib after husking. Make
up a sample of 12 ears as nearly uni
form in size, shape and color as pos
sille. See that exhibit ears are well
cured in dry air and thus avoid forma
tion of mold and the premature sprout
ing of kernels, which occurs when heat
and moisture are both presedt."
