:C t] 13 Ml? Rural School Students Will Have Oppor tunity to Compete for $3,500 in Prises. A good-seed contest that is designed to produce the manifold result of in creasing the yield of grain in Minne sota and educating the youth of the state practical and successful farm ing has been annnounced by the Min nesota school of agriculture. Students in rural schools are eligi ble to participate in the contest for the $2,500 that will be awarded to win ners and will be duly entered upon filling out blanks that may be ob tained without expense from the county superintendent of each district. The contest is in accord with the good-seed campaign now being car ried on through the country, and al ready sufficient encouragement has been received by the school of agri culture to insure tjie success and great benefit of the venture. Wheat, oats and corn will figure in the contest. Contestants may choose either or all of the three grains. They are expected to obtain their own seed, but will be urged to search care fully for the best. The seed should then be planted in plots of one fourth or a half acre each. A bulletin that will give definite rules for the contest is being prepared by Professor C. P. Bull of the agricultural division of the experimental station. This bulle tin will also give simple test rules for the three grains, and is designed for class use, with the hope that it will be the means of introducing the study of the elements of agriculture as a regular subject in the country schools. With the movement well under way next summer and hundreds of little plats of grain being nursed by ambi tious contestants, plans will be made for county meetings at which results of the preliminary contests will be judged. A program of general inter est to farmers, old and young, will be provided at each county seat on judg ing day,"and hundreds of older farm ers who will be drawn to the exhibi tions are expected to derive excellent seed education from the fine results that are expected to follow the plant ing of tested seed. Judges who prob ably will be appointed by the school of agriculture will pass upon the ex hibits in each county. To add interest and value to the contests the winners of the county con tests will participate in a state con test. Their samples will be sent to Minneapolis, where they will pass un der the judgment of the State Field and Crop Breeders' association at the annual meetings of the State Agri cultural society each January. The contest just begun will proba bly be continued for three years at least and may be prolonged after that period if the results are up to expectations, a fact that is not doubted now. Professor D. D. Mayne, principal of the Minnesota School of Agricul ture, is enthusiastic over the pros pects of the contest. Discussing it he said: 'It is believed that to the farmers of the state such a contest will prove of great benefit in a wide distribution of good seed as well as in the intro duction of a practical study of the three grains and the best methods of growing them. Either of the results is worthy of all the effort that need be put forth to secure it, but it is con fidently expected that both results will be obtained more quickly by this con test than in any other way 'The average yield per acre of wheat in Minnesota is less than four teen bushels This is less than the average for the United States and less than that of any of our neighbor states With good seed and proper methods of cultivation, the \ield per acre could easily be doubled Min nesota. The production of oats and corn shows the same need of better seed "You remember a year ago, when, on account of the rust, there was such a scarcity of good wheat? The trade was menaced by the lack of No. 1 northern. Had the farmers that year been educated along the line of better wheat production what a revo lution would have been accomplished for Minnesota. "This contest means the breeding of a variety of seeds that will beat anything ever produced." Hut Onions for Pneumonia. Owing to the prevalence of pneu monia and the great mortality which attends its ravages during the winter and spring, several boards of health in northern New Jersey hare been taking measures to protect the citizens of their towns from the disease. The health board of Washington, N. J., has published a remedy which is said to be a sure cure for pneumonia, and other health boards are looking into the matter with a view of having the same thing published for the good of the general public. This is the publi cation as it has appeared in the pa pers of Washington: "Take six to ten onions, according to size, and chop fine, put in a large spider over a hot fire, then add the same quantity of rye meal and vine gar enough to form a thick paste. In the moauwhiir stir it ihoioughly, let ting it simmer five or ten minutes. Then put in a cotton bag large enough to cover the lungs and apply to chest as hot as patient can bear. In about ten minutes apply another, and thus continue by repeating the poultices, and in a few hours the patient will be out of danger. This simple remedy has never failed to cure this too-often fatal malady. Usually three or four applications will be sufficient, but continue always until the perspira tion starts freely from the chest. This remedy was formulated many years ago by one of the best physicians New England has ever known, who never lost a patient by the disease, and won his renown by simple reme dies. MVKE DEAF E Alt.

High Wages, in America. A unique testimonial to the high wages paid in this country is the fact that artificial diamonds are all made in Europe as the cost of labor here makes their manufacture practically impossible. Think of it,diamonds, the most costly luxury known to modern civilization can't be made in America because labor is so well paid. No wonder we can enjoy the good things in life.

Wins Free Suit Offer. Master David Berthiume has won the $5.00 suit of Xtragood clothes re cently offered by Jesmer's depart ment store to the first boy under six teen who should find and identify the salesman from the Chicago house which makes the well known Xtragood brand of boys' and children's cloth ing. Some days ago the above named firm of this city began advertising the approach of the Chicago sales man, and coupled with the announce ment of his coming an offer to give, free, any $5.00 suit in their store to the first boy finding him. The boys had been instructed to say: "You are from Ederheimer, Stein & Co., Chicago, and sell Xtragood clothes." The much-sought-for salesman ar rived suddenly Tuesday evening and was almost immediately besieged by crowds of boys. After being recog nized, he was followed through the streets with a greater and more en thusiastic escort than even a circus usually attracts. Probably Murdered. The dead body of a negro was found by a Great Northern conductor on Monday morning near the bridge, about four miles north of Elk River. This is almost the same spot where Crawford and Palmer committed the crime which sent one of them to prison for thirty years and the other to the gallows. That another murder has been committed nobody doubts and the coroner has already begun an in vestigation. P. E. Cooney of St. Cloud, lineman for the Great North ern, passed the spot Sunday evening on his speeder and was held up by two men who demanded his money. They were not armed and Cooney showed fight, whereupon they permitted him to proceed unmolested. It i tjfloagbfc that the negro might have been the victim of the same pair of hold-up artists.
