The College is Experimenting
*-■ With the Milling Properties
of Wheat Varieties
One of the most interesting experi-'
ments now being conducted at the ex->
periment station is under the direction ,
of Prof. Thatcher, of the department
of chemistry who is testing the milling
values of the many varieties of wheat
grown in the state, a complete flour
mill has been added to the experiment
station and the station staff will grind
flour from samples of wheat brought
to the college and bake bread of it in ;
the department of domestic science, j
The mill is complete in every detail ',
and is expected to make a fine grade j
of flour. Wheat will be brought in j
from various localities and ground at
the station. The flour will be baked
into bread and pastry and the entire
process will be noted scientifically, and
tthis information will be tabulated for
the benefit of those attending the
wheat convention which opens here Jan
uary 2nd, and which will continue for
a period of two weeks.
Professor Thatcher has received
about thirty samples of wheat from
various sections of the Inland Empire
and is analyzing these. There are
eight different varieties represented in
the samples received, and he expects
samples of every variety grown in
this section. In addition to the scien
tific analysis, the experiments of
grinding will be conducted, and thus
it is hoped to learn all about the res
pective qualities of the various kinds
of wheat. Professor Thatcher expects
to have analyses of every variety of
wheat grown in the Inland Empire
completed before the opening of the
wheat convention. He will also also
have analyses of the soils of various
sections, showing the qualities of the
soil and its adaptability to each kind
of wheat. By this work it is hoped to
learn much about what varities of
wheat will give the best results in
In addition to the information thus
gained in a scientific way the meeting
and association of those interested in
the wheat industry, from the farmer
to the baker, will be of vast benefit
to all concerned, is the opinion of
the college faculty, the regents and all
to whom the matter has been suggest
ed. Representatives of all the larg
est milling firms on the coast are to
be here. Local shippers and ware
housemen from all sections of Eastern
Washington have signified an intention
to be present, and the coast towns will
send delegations to meet the farmers
and the local shippers and warehouse
men. Bakers are invited to be pres
ent and witness the tests of the var
ious kinds of wheat, and it is thought
they will gain much useful informa
tion in thia way. There is not a sub
ject pertaining to wheat but will be
discussed by experts at the meeting.
Threshing machine operators are es
pecially urged to be present to give
their quota t»-the mass of general in
formation which will be brought out.
All of the most extensive wheat farm
ers of the Palouse, Walla Walla, Eu
reka Flat, Big Bend, Potlatch and
Camas Prairie districts have been in
vited to attend, as well as the farmer
who raises but a small crop each year.
The state grain commissioner has en
dorsed the convention and its members
are urging a large attendance.
NOTED SINGER TO APPEAR IN

recital by Mr. Claire Monteith, the

Fifth Annual Meeting of the Inland StocK
The attention of the stock breeders]
of the Inland Empire is called to the
coming annual mooting, and their car-J
nost co-operation in 'creating an inter-1
\ ost in the work of the association is i
solicited. Special effort on the part
I of those interested in the advancement
of the live stock industry is necessary
at this time as two or three years of
more than average success in grain
growing always weakens the interest
of the great body of farmers in stock
raising. To lot stock raising retro
i grade at this time only aggravates the
difficulties during the period of depres
sion in grain growing which almost al
ways follow! sooner or later.
An excellent program is being pre-
pared, announcement of which will he
given later. The special feature of
the meeting that we wish to call atten
tion to at the present time is the stock
show held on Friday forenoon, Febru
ary 9th. An excellennt prize list is
arranged and should call forth a iine
exhibit. Do not forget that the pur
pose of this show is not to encourage
the production of fancy stock as that
phase is provided for in the larger
shows, but particularly to encourage
the production of a better class of eoin
| mon stock from which we always draw;
the larger supply of animal products
for consumption. It is believed tbit
this improvement may be hrc^jjt i
about most economically by the use
of pure bred sires and the prize lists
have been arranged accordingly. If
! you have a good animal meeting the
requirements in some class do not
leave it at home because you fear you
will not get the prize but bring it
along and help the enterprise.
While the previous shows have been
! good, there have always been some
| classes with no entries. Remember
that non-members may enter [stock.
' If you have nothing to show but know
of someone who does, stir him up.
The following prize list is offered:
For the best steer or heifer calf
: from six to eighteen months old got
by registered sire Ist, $30; 2nd, $20;
[ 3rd, $10; 4th, $5.
For best grade draft colt under
twelve months old got by a registered
■ire—lit, $30; 2nd, $20; 3rd, $10; 4th,
For best grade pig under ten months
old got by a registered sire Ist, $15;
I 2nd, $12.50; 3rd, $8; 4th, $3.
For best grade wether under twelve
months old sired by a registered ram
-Ist, $10; 2nd. $7.50; 3rd, $5; 4th,
For best exhibit of fine bred poul
In addition to the above, thefollow
ing premiums are offered:
The Hazelwood Company, through
J. L. Smith, offers a cup for the best
steer exhibited at the next annual
meeting, and Birch Hill Farm, through
I W. M. Carruthers, a cup for the best
pig, and cup to be handed down from
year to year to the one having the best
animals, and if won three years in
succession by the same person, be
comes the property of said exhibitor.
Correspondence is solicited from
George Severence, Secretary.
