NEW THINGS TO PLANT IN '94.
When that experiment station gets
started at ZUlah, they will of course try
all the species and varieties of plants
that seem especially adapted to the soil
If they don't "get "a move on" pretty
quick now the central Washington exper
iment station will not be a thing of 1894.
Meantime it will not do to let a single
year go by without progressive investiga
tion of the capacities and needs of this
"arid region." And in no way can more
positive, quick and valuable information
be secured than by experimenting with
varieties and species of plants that seem
to posspss peculiar value to this section.
Among the things we recommend trial of
are the following:
Sugar beets, of course. Get free seeds
and instructions fJom Prof. E. Fulmer,
Agricultural college, Pullman, Wash.
Flax, for the seed and fibre. The
northwest will soon have textile manu
factories and we will want to be ready to
deal with them when established.
Teasles. Said to be a most profitable
crop under similar conditiona.
Flat pea, Lathyrus silvestris. Claim
ed to be a more productive fodder crop
than alfalfa, and especially desirable as
a mulch crop in young orchards.
Esparto grass; as a factor in paper mak
ing in the possible inter-mountain near
mills of the future.
Jute; for its fibre for hop sacking, etc.
Hemp; for fibre.
Osiers; for basket and furniture mak
Sunflowers; for the seed for feed and
oil, and the stalks for paper making.
Chicory; a 9 a "coffee" substitute.
Canaigre; the Arizona tannin' plant
that Engineer Sterling says is found on
the Yakima reservation in a wild state.
Crimion clover; one of the most favor
ed of recent fodder and "green" crops in
the east. This would be a very pretty
thinij grown near home.
Castor bean ; as a source of the medicin
al oil It flourishes grandly in other
Grapes, of course, in every known var
All the "novelties" shown in the seed
Now any one man may not easily grow
all of these things. We suggest that at
the next meeting of the horticultural
society these things be talked up' and a
sort of "divvy" of the work made among
the willing members.
