Las Cruces and the Mesilla Valley
RAISING OF WHEAT
TE MESILLA VALLEY
Experiments Show That It
Is the Most Profitable
Crop to Raise.
Las Cruces, X. M., Aug. 18 The ag
ricultural experiment station of the New
Mexico college of agriculture and me
chanic arts, under the direction of as
sistant professor Squires, has been con
ducting an experiment "nith wheat.
Sixty-three varieties were planted and
each -was carefully watched -in order to
see which would he the best for this lo
cality. Among the varieties tested was seed
grown from wheat which has been
Taised in this valley for years; some '
from the United States department of
agriculture; some recommended by var
ious seed firms; some from other ex
periment stations, and some that was
hand selected from mixed varieties. All
the varieties tested were spring wheat
and each was sowed at the uniform
rate of one ajid one-half bushels to the
The fields used for the experiments
jprere the ordinary ones of the college
trifle-poorer than the majority of farm
, land in the vicinity.
The experiments were conducted with
the view of finding which seed gave
the largest yieJd and also as xo which
seed was the best drouth resisting. It
was found that the seed from the wheat
which had been taken from strains which
have been grown at the college aila in
the valley for years gave the highest
yields and required less .water. The
maximum yield was 67.5 'bushels to the
acre, the wheat being plump and well
formed, showing good milling quali
ties. The minimum yield of all strains
tried was 2"9 bushels to the acre, these
strains coming from northern and non
Prof. Squires has reached the opinion
that wheat can be very profitably raised
In this valley and that dt is in fact a
better crop for the average farmer than
alfalfa. Heretofore the main trouble
about raising wheat has been the di
tcultv of threshing it, there being no
machines and the work having to be
done by horses or goats. In the last
j ear, however, three threshers have
been brought into the valley. Under the
old system of threshing by animal power
the straw was worthless except for the
manufacture of adobes. "With machine
threshing the straw can be baled and
sold as bedding at the rate of ?8 a ton.
Good Prices Paid,
Wheat is selling here at 90 cents a
bushel and by inter the price wijl be i
i ?1.20 a bushel, very likely reaching $1.80
by spring. Even with a yield of 50
bushels to the acre, which is very con
servative, the farmer will realize as
much or more than hie could on alfaira.
In addition, the wheat crop matures
long before the river was ever known
to go dry and this gives it the greater
advantage aver the forage crop.
This is not rneant to indicate that
alfalfa .is not a good crop to raise, but
is simply to emphasize the fact that
alfalfa is not the only crop which can be
raised here at a good profit. The scien
tific end of wheat raising will soon be
handled by the college in a bulletin
which is now being prepared.
A number of valley farmers have been
growing wheat this year and they all
report good yields and good quality of
grain. Some of these wheat growers
are following their wheat crop with a
crop of late corn, thereby making their
land produce two crops for the year.
LAS CKUCES CATALOLPE
SEASON" HAS NEARLY ENDED
Las Cruces, X. M., Aug. 18. Owing to
the dry season the cantaloupe crop is

very goodup to the present time. The
Jate shipments are bringing $1, net, to
the growers, per case, but the supply
Is limited. Complete returns on the
season's crop have not yet been re
ceived, but the growers have made big
profits from their investments,.

LAS CRUCES MAN
HAS ANTIQUE VIOLIN
Chicago House Wants Price
Placed on It But the
Las Cruces, N. M., Aug. IS. Patrons
of the Airdome theater had the un
conscious pleasure of listening to music
played on a violin ithat is almost 400
years old. It had been loaned tothe
Airdome violin player just for theone
night. A good many years ago an Ital
ian musician died on one of the Mississ
ippi steamboats and gave his only pos
session a violin to a family on the
boat who had befriended him. About
20 years ago one of the Holt boys
traded an old horse to this family for
the violin and when Holt died he gave
the instrument to his brother, "Walter,
who still owns it.
It is a magnificently carved and In
laid case and burned into the Inside is
the following: Gaspard Diuffo Pruggar
de NamllJio Anno 1516. On one side of
the case outside are burned or carved
the words "Et Rocy Gorgio."
The violin was recently sent to Lyon
& Healy m Chicago to be polished up
and that firm, has been writing" letters
at frequent intervals since then in the
attempt to buy the Instrument, or at
least have the present owner place a
price on it. This he refuses to do, wish
ing to keep his violin In memory of his
one crop of alfalfa seed net year. Th
seed which has been raised in this val
ley has been found to give better re
sults when planted here than seed
raised elsewhere and under different
climatic and water conditions- It is
expected to reserve about 1000 acres
next year from the seed crop, the seed
to be sold locally. Alfalfa seed will
produce from 300 to 500 pounds to the
acre and sells at wholesale at from 10
to 12 cents a pound. There is already
an alfalfa huller in Las Cruces, so the
crop can be taken care of in the right
