Probably the most important ind

should be borne in mind with regard I
wheat at thrashing time. This opern

greatest care, and measures should I
taken to see that as little grain i
possible is lost or allowed to escal
through faulty operation of the mi
chines or unwise methods of thras1
ing. This year there is a particuh
necessity of a more careful handlin
of the grain in the fields and in thrasi
