Mamtainirfg the Quality and Purity of Seed Wheat. ' BY PROF. A. M. TEN EYCK. During the last four years the Kansas Experiment Station has distributed some eight thousand , bushels of well bred, hard red , Jwinter wheat of the best produc--"jng varieties. Among these are the Kharkof Malakoff; Improved Turkey etc. This wheat has been redistributed by the farm ers and sown in larger areas, and fields of it are growing in practi cally every county of the State, the total acreage aggregating some 200,000 acres. The tests at the Station and reports from farmers prove that this wheat is of greater yielding capacity and hardier and purer and of better quality than the wheat generally grown, hence it is important that the farmers who are grow ing this wheat take great care in keeping the wheat pure in order to continue the distribut - ion of this improved seed-wheat ' and at the same time maintain the yield and quality of the ) wheat grown on their own farms. There are several factors , which cause a deterioration of wheat, and one of the principal of these is the mixture or cross ing of wheat of different strains or varieties. The improved wheat which has been distribut ed by the State Experiment Station is not obsolutely pure in variety or type, but these varie ties are much purer than the average wheat of the country, and this purity must be main tained if the good qualities of this wheat are to continue. One of the principal sources of mix ing is from volunteer wheat year after year. In order to keep the wheat pure and of good quality, the crop for seed should always be grown in a field free fiom volunteer wheat. This necessitates rotation, preceding the wheat with some other, crop such as oats, barley, or corn and in order that the fertility of the soil be maintained by such rota , tion the legumes and grasses should be included. If it is necessary to sow wheat after wheat, great care should be tak en to destroy the volunteer growth as far as possible by early plowing and frequent cul tivation before seeding, or by disking immediately after har vest in order to start the volun teer wheat, which may be des troyed later by plowing. Again, wheat may become mixed in the harvesting or shock ing. This is especially apt to occur when the farmer is intro ducing the wheat planting it, usually in small areas. Care should be taken to plant the pure seed in a separate field, or if the wheat is planted in a field with other wheat a narrow alley should be left between varieties so they may be harvested seper ately. Wheat does not cross fertilize like corn or sorghum, and the varieties may be planted near each other without mixing except through carelessness in harvesting. There is some dan ger, however, that when two varieties of wheat are planted thus in the same field that mix ing may occur by heavy rains washing the seed of one part of the field to another. Also a heavy wind may blow seed of one variety from one field to another. Another common source of mixing is in threshing. If two or more varieties of wheat are grown on the same farm, it is advisable to thresh some other grain after threshing one variety of wheat, or if no other small grain is grown on the farm, great care should be taken to clean out the seperator before threshing the pure wheat, and then it would be well to send the first load or two of the pure seed CATARRH COVP gW-FEVER Ely's Cream Balm Sure to Civa Satisfaction.

The same care should be taken when the seperator is hauled from one farm to another not only to prevent mixing var ieties of wheat, but also to pre vent the spread of smut from one farm to another through inoculating the seed wheat from the threshing-machine that has previously threshed smutty wheat. The farmer is not apt to "mix varieties by careless storing, since he will have only one im proved variety, and this he will easily keep seperate from the common crop. Most farmers are rather too careless in not carefully cleaning the fanning mill when changing from one variety of wheat to anather. It hardly seems necessary to men tion the importance of carefully sweeping out bins and cleaning all sacks into which this pure wheat is to be stored. To produce the best seed wheat it should be well graded and only the heaviest and plumpest kernels sown. The seed grain should be graded and fanned to remove weed seeds, if for no other reason. Again, it is usually necessary to fan grain simply to remove dirt, chaff and pieces of stems that would great ly interfere with the uniform distribution of the seed in plant ing. Also, the inferior plant produced from inferior seeds mas act as weeds, especially in dry seasons or on land low in fertility, actually taking the moisture and the plant food from the larger and better devel oped plants, thus reducing the yield and injuring the quality of the grain produced. Harvest the wheat when it is fully matured. Immature seed is apt to be shrunken and defi cient in vitality. On the other hand, as soon as the wheat is over-ripe it begins to deterioriate in quality and may lose some of its vitality. Do not allow seed wheat to become damaged by rain. Shock well immediately and thresh from the field as soon as the grain is dry, or put the wheat into stacks or barns for protection. Perhaps more wheat is injured in quality after harvest by unfavorable weather and from carelessness in hand ling than from any other source. The stacks should be well built to protect from the rain, and after the wheat is put into the stack or barn it should be left for several weeks ' until after; it has passed through the sweat before it is threshed. Whether to cap shocks or to leave them uncapped is the question. Un less wheat is well set up and carefully capped the caps are apt to blow off and the shocks are then more exposed than if the bundles were originally set in open shocks. I perfer, how ever, to carefully shock and cat rather than to set in long shocks or round shocks without caps. It may be necessary to go over the field occasionally after a wind in order to replace caps that have been blown off. Do not make the shocks too large. Ten or twelve set up with a single cap carefully broken and spread is better than a large shock with two or three caps. If wheat farmers will practice the plan of growing and saving seed wheat as suggested above, the average yield of wheat may be increased several bushels per acre and the quality and purity of the grain may be improved. There will be a greater de mand this summer for improved seed-wheat than ever before, and it is important that the farmers who are now growing pure wheat may keep it pure. The farmers who grows any wheat will find it profitable to deliver that in marketable condition. "Suffered day and night the torment of itching piles. Noth ing helped me until I used Doan's Ointment. It cured me permanently." Hon. John R. Gar rett. Mayor, Girard, Ala., The ability of James Vanpelt, a negro, to stretch his mouth so that it will contain saucers, spoons, forks and other articles more or less small is largely re sponsible for his present seri ous illness at the city jail, from the effects of three silver dollars he swallowed Sunday night in a successful effort to prevent the police from obtaining possession of the money. It is said that the only means by which the mo ney can be removed from' Van pelt's stomach will be an opera-' tion. This will be resorted to unless there is a speedy im provement in his condition. One of a pair of dice which was with the money in the negro's mouth, was also swallowed. Lawrence World. Subscribe for World. For Rent The Mensing farm, F. O'Neil, Ellis, Kan.
