Don't Take Chances With Bad Product
This Year-Homemade Testing De
vice Will Tell You the Value of
Seeds-Clean Small Grains
The seed trade has voluntarily
agreed to label all field seeds with the
percentage of pure seed that will
grow, giving the purchaser exact in
formation as to quality. The United
States Department or Agriculture
urges all farmers to buy their seeds
only from dealers who comply with
this agreement and not to run the risk
of buying high-price.;, unlabeled seed

Get your seed early and make a
germination test of it before sowing.
Count out 100 seeds; put them be
tween folds of moist paper or cloth
between two dinner plates and keep at
room temperature for 4 days; then
count the sprouted seeds. If 95 seeds
sprout the seed is good; if only a
small part of the msprout the seed is

Washington, D. C., with the request
that it be tested for quality, including
percentage of purity and germination.
Don't take any chances with the
quality of the red clover seed you sow
Never before has the price of red
clover seed been so high as it is at the
present time, and never has the quan
tity of seed on hand been so small in
proportion to the acreage to be seeded.
In years when the demand for any
kind of seed exceeds the supply, all
available seed is put on the market
and much of the seed is of poorer
quality than in normal years. There
fore, every farmer beforn sowing
should know what proportion of the
seed he buys cannot be expected to
grow. If one lot contains 96 per cent
of seed that will grow and another lot
contains 64 per cent of seed that will
grow it will take three bushels of the
64 per cent seed to sow the same num
ber of acres that 2 bushels of the 96
per cent seed will sow. ,
This is important from the stand
point of cost alone when red clover
need is selling for $20 or more per
bushel. It is much more necessary,
however, to know the quality of seed
in order that the rate of-seeding may
'be proportional to the quality, so that
enough live seed will be sowed to in
sure a stand in the field. First know
how much of the seed may grow and
then sow accordingly.
CLEAN SEED BEFORE SOWING
Cleaning and grading the small
grains for spring sowing should be
done before the spring rush in pre
paring the land and sowing the seed.
Wheat, oats, barley and flax can be
improved for seeding by running the
seed through the fanning mill at least
once. The cleaned grain will run
through the drill or other seeding
machinery more evenly and thus in
sure a more uniform stand than can
be obtained from uncleaned grain.
Cleaning grain removes most of the
weak and diseased kernels, many of
which may not grow at all, or if they
do grow are likely to produce small,
weak plants. Uniformly large, plump
kernes germinate more evenly, pro
duce stronger plants, and yield more
than ungraded grain containing small,
Thorough cleaning also removes a
large part of the weed seeds the grain
contains. The preparation of the land
for seeding destroys many seeds that
are in the ground and thus helps to
keep wveedls in check, but the value of
this wvork-is largely lost if foul seed
Although the small grain of the
1917 crop, except in North Dakota
and Montana, is mostly of excellent
quality for seed, yet it is well worth
while to run this grain through the
fanning mill at least once. No avoid
able chances should be taken in sowv
img the 1918 crop. Th(, very best seed
available should be used. Increases
in yield of from 2 to 5 bushels or more
to the acre are often obtained from
sowing clean, large seed, but a gain of
even a bushel to the acre will mean
big wages for the days spent in get
ting seedl ready for sowing. The
screenings have a value for feed and
none for seed.

FUEL, QUESTION IN MEX!CO
Mexico City, Feb. 28.-(Corres
pondence of the Associated Press.)
The fuel crisis in Mexico, especially in
the Northern States, has caused Al
berto Pani, Secretary of Industry and
Commerce, to investigate the mineral
resources of the country and recom
mend to President Carranza exploita
tion by the government of what are
termed extensive coal fields at Colom
bia, Neuvo Leon, on the banks of the
Rio Grande, which have been worked
in a desultory fashion for twenty
five years. Lack of rail transporta
tion has been the chief obstacle to the
development tof the deposits and Mr.
Pani proposes that the government
build a branch line to Colombia, con
necting with the National Railway
System either at Sanchez or La Ja
rita, points near Lampazes.
