JONES HOLDS TO
Expert Declares That Two-
thirds of Manitoba's Crop
Is Ruined by Rust.
Special to The Journal.
"Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 19.H. V.
Jones, editor of the Commercial West,
a well-known Minneapolis wheat ex
pert, was at the grain exchange and
Black rust has spiead over Manitoba
and threatens the late wheat. The early
wheat will not be materially affected Tne
rust this year is a disease that is much
misunderstood Because its first appear
ance is red, many confuse it with common
red rust It is entirely different, how
ever, because it will not wash 01
Rust makes its appeal ance on the main
stalks/and can be detected by running
the finger o^el the stiaw befoie it showi
its color These httle eruptions soon
bieak out in red spots and begin to spiead
ovei the stalks and as they become laige
open sores develop in the outer co\ ei
ing, then turn black, and the wheat dies
It will be well to cut the wheat before
the rust co\ers the stalk and kills it,
because there may be sufficient moisture
in the straw to give at least partial ma
turity to the berry.
The loss of wheat from rust in the
Dakotas has been very serious, Amount
ing to at least flft million bushels This
will suggest how dangerous a thing it
is to late wheat The disease will not
strike wheat until it is in the milk, and
experience thus far this jear shows that
it does not stop its work short of the
blade stage of development
I trust you mav be favored with a
minimum of damage, because western
Canada has the finest stand of wheat
for so large an area, that I ha\e ever
seen These observations as to Manitoba
conditions are based on a personal in
spection of the fields in the territory be
tween the international boundary and
Lake Manitoba and as far west as Bran
Mr. Jones said today that two
thirds of Manitoba's crop is ruined by
REINFECTION OF RUST
Snow Confirms Worst Reports as to
North Dakota's Wheat.
Special to The Journal.
Fergus Falls, Minn., Aug. 19.B.
W. Snow, the well-known grain ex
pert, was in the city today on his re
turn from a tour of North Dakota.
He says there is some good wheat in
the northwestern counties of North
Dakota, and cutting has already begun
there, so that the crop is safe. In
the Red River valley, conditions are
anything but favorable. The greener
fields are in worse condition than
those that ripened earlier, as they ap
pear to have had a reinfection of rust.
In the James river valley, there is a
great stand of straw, and the crop
promised a heavy yield, but the rust
has taken it and it will not yield more
than five to eight bushels an acre,
and this of a very poor quality.
A farmer residing west of Wahpeton
measured off a ten-acre tract on one
section of his farm, and cut and
threshed the gram with a view to
ascertaining the average yield. The
wheat averaged six bushels to the
acre, machine measure, but the
bushels weighed only 44 pounds each,
whereas 60 pounds is the standard
weight for the measured bushel. He
took the grain to the elevator and was
offered 30 cents a bushel for it, as it
was shrunkento such an extent that it
could only be classed as screenings
and sold for food for stock. This Is
the condition of the bulk of the grain
in this immediate locality.
ROGERS AN OPTIMIST
Crops Along the Willmar & Sioux
Falls, He Says, Are Good.
Special to The Journal.
Sioux City, Iowa, Aug. 19.Fred
Rogers, general freight and passen
ger agent of the Willmar & Sioux
Falls railroad, won't allow crop pes
simists in his office. He has just re
turned from a trip from Willmar,
Minn., to O'Neill, Neb., and says
"Small grain will average fully one
third better than last year. Barley,
last year good only for feeding, will
grade for brewing purposes this year.
Oats is clean and bright, heavier than
usual, and yielding in the sixties.
Wheat is better than last year. Along
our Minnesota line wheat is yielding
fifteen to twenty-two bushels, and
much of it will grade No. 1. Last
year this wheat went no better than
"As for the corn crop, I am some
thing of a weather prophet myself,
and I predict there will be no frost
till after Sept. 15. I base my predic
tion on the fact that we have already
had our cold weather."
