THE FARMER'S FORUM
Devoted to the interests of Farmers Clubs, Co-operative

DOORS TO SUCCESS SWING
OPEN TO BOYS AND QIRLS
New doors to success are being
opened to the young men and the
young women of west central Minne
sota by the West Central School of
Agriculture and Experiment Station
These doors consist of a series of
courses beginning January 3 and end
ing March 24, and cover such sub
jects as types and breeds of farm and
mals, small grains, blacksmithing,
carpentry, milk-testing, industrial
geography, English, sanitation, physi
ology, sewing, cooking, music
West central Minnesota holds won
derful possibilities of agricultural de
velopment, but if such development
is to come rapidly, it must be by the
application of businesslike methods
It is with just this thing in view that
the courses mentioned are being of
A group of business men got to
gether not long since to consider a
plan of enlarging a factory in which
they were interested. It was felt that
the enlargement of the plant was ne
cessary in order to meet the increas
ing demand for their goods. One
man was present, however, who had
been through a factory no larger than
that about which the men were de
bating, but which in spite of this fact
was turning out a much larger pro
duction by means of a better arrange
men* of its equipment This man
opposed the enlargement of the plant
as unnecessary expense, but suggest
ed then as an alternative a rearrange
ment of the machinery. His plan was
adopted with altogether satisfactory
PROGRESSIVE PARMER IS
It is just this kind of a plan which
is being presented by the Morris
school to the progressive farmer, who
is in reality a business man, and who
just like other business men1, is look
ing for means to improve the output
of his plant
Live stock on the farm is presented
because live stock, which is fed farm
crops in part at least, gives the farm
er a double profit The difference be
tween the cost of producing the crop
and the cost of feeds on the markets
is one profit, and the gain to be had
by feeding and marketing live stock
Again, many a farmer is spending
his time in growing small grains of
common standards without a thought
of the fact that he might do much
better by growing pedigreed strains
for sale as ed It costs little more
to grow seed for commercial purpos
es than it does to grow the common
grades of gram, and the return is
No better way has been found to
get these ideas into practise on one's
farm than by sending some of the
young people from the farm to such
a school as the West Central School,
to absorb the ideas and bring them
home to put into practise. The young
men and young women who have at
tended such schools are on their met
tie They work with enthusiasm and
they get results. It Is good to have
such young men and young women
on the farms.
COURSE OF ONE WEEK.
But in these days the mature farm
er is not willing that his children or
his neighbor's children should do all
of the education-getting. He cannot
take a three months' course, but he
can take a week's course and get a
lot of useful facte For just such men
the West Central School is offering a
week's short course which will begin
February 14 and close February 19.
This is a course of an intensely prac
tical character Jt puts stress upon
farming as a business. It will give
instruction also in beef-producing,
dairying, dairy types and feeding,
commercial seed production, drain
age, use of gas engines, ways to
build farm structures, the work of
farmers' clubs, and contracts and oth
er legal forms In addition, will be
offered talks and demonstrations by
men like Smith, formerly at
University Farm, St Paul, W. A. Mc
Kerrow, and N. E. Chapman of the
Extension Division of the College of
Agriculture, and S B. Garner, a lee
turer on farm drainage. The eve
nings will be devoted to social pleas
ures and entertainments.
Another force is at work for west
cenral Minnesota, however, and that
is the West Central Experiment Sta
tion. Here in a practical way are be
ing worked out the problems that con
front the farmers of the region.
For example, there is the problem
of the right corn for west central Min
nesota Many farmers have been
growing Minnesota No 13, and w'th
not a little success, but improved
strains of Minnesota No. 13, better
adapted to the conditions which ex
ist in the west central part of the

state are needed, and the Experiment
Station is making progress toward
finding them. Alfalfa, again, has found
a place in this part of the state There
are problems affecting alfalfa which
have not been solved, in spite of the
success with which the forage has
been grown, however, and the Experi
ment Station is at work upon these
As these and other problems' are
worked out, they are given without
reserve to the people of the state,
through the young men and the young
women who come to the school, thru
those who attend* the short courses,
and by every other available means.
WORK CARRIED TO THE FARM.
In fact, the school carries not a
little of its instruction to the people
on their own farms This has been
done to a large extent by promoting
rural improvement committees and
organizations, by the Influence of its
students upon their own farms' and
upon their own communities, and by
its faculty in contact with the farm
A man of great success living in
the vicinity of a school similar to that
of Morris made the remark the other
day that the school was one of the
best assets of the entire region. It
was making better men and better
women of the young men and young
women of the day, and it was re-mak
ing agricultural methods, and through
them increasing the prosperity of the
whole country-side. This is just the
kind of thing which the West Cen
tral Minnesota School was established
to do Progress is its watchword. It
is asking simolv that the people- of
the country quicken their pace in their
progress, and through its winter
courses and its short courses it is
showing how the pace may be quick

NEEDLESS LOSS BY
SMUT IN WHEATS
Recently in Northwestern Minne
sota, we called at a local elevator and
while there, a farmer brought in a
sample of wheat. It was promptly
rejected by the buyer. The buyer said
he could not handle the wheat under
We examined the wheat and found
the worst case of stinking smut we
had ever seen. Fully 10 per cent of
the sample was smut balls and the
whole was dirty looking and foul
smelling. At best the sample of wheat
was worth no more than feed prices,
and it is doubtful whether any kind
of stock would have cared to eat the
Here was a case where a farmer
who had done all the work necessary
to produce a crop of wheat and had
harvested and threshed it, probably
secured 15 bushels of wheat per acre
worth no more than 60 cents a bush
el, whereas if he had sown good seed
he might have harvested 20 bushels
of wheat worth 90 cents a bushel. In
other words, he could have gotten $18
per acre for his crop in place of $9.
The entire loss could have been pre
vented by the formalin treatment at
a cost not to exceed a very few cents
per acre. A pint bottle of formaldi
hyde costing from. 35 to 50 cents and
a few hours labor would have treated
enough seed grain to sow 50 acres.
There is no excuse for such a loss ex
cept carelessness. Any drug store,
general Implement dealer, experiment
station or farm paper will cheerfully
furnish information concerning the
treatment of grain for smut. No far
mer is wealthy enough to afford to
sow grain affected with smut.—A. D.
