TWIN CITY LETTER Meeting at Minneapolis of the National Association of Grain Dealers—Exhibits of Choice Samples of Grain From the Different States—Minnesota Grades of Spring Wheat Recognized as the Stand ard, and Minnesota Rules Recom mended for Adoption—Novel Exhibit from Louisana. [SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. The annual meeting of the Na tional association of grain dealers, recently held in Minneapolis, was an occasion of great interest to jrain dealers and grain growers, a ad there were some features, particularly the exhibits, which were interesting to every one. This organization is composed of men who are also members of some commercial body, such as a chamber of commerce or board of trade, in their respective cities. The annual meetings are held for the purpose of discussing methods of grain in spection and weighing and such other questions as are of interest to the trade. The delegates who attended the Minneapolis conven tion were a distinguished looking body of men, and their meeting was held in the magnificently equipped Grand opera house. There were addresses and papers on every feature of the grain growing and grain handling business by eminent men from far remote states, and these addresses were followed by lively discussions. State super vision of grain inspection and weighing, the raising of macaroni wheat and kindred subjects received their share of attention, but that part of the proceedings will be reserved for a future communica tion. In a room near the Chamber of Commerce there were on exhibition during the three days' session samples of grain from many differ ent states, and cards showing the official grades. It gave an oppor tunity to compare, not only the merits of the grains, but the official grading of the different states. Of course the inspection departments of the different cities throughout the country have the printed in spection rules of all the other de partments, and an effort has always been made to make the rules as nearly uniform as varying local conditions would permit. But here one could compare the grain itself. He could take a sample of spring wheat which had been graded No. 1 or No. 2 by the Philadelphia board of trade, for instance, and compare it with wheat of the same grade from Buffalo, Toledo, St. Louis, Baltimore or Minneapolis. It must be remembered that Min nesota is the only state which has a law in full operation for state in spection. In other states the work is done under the supervision of commercial organizations of the larger cities, and where there are several large cities in one state each city has an inspection depart ment. For instance there were samples of official grading here from Kansas City and "Wichita, Kan., St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo., Chicago and Peoria, 111., Toledo and Cincinnati, Ohio, and New York City and Buffalo, N. Y. Other cities represented by samples, officially graded, were Indianapolis, Burlington, Galveston, Baltimore and New Orleans. These samples had been carefully selected, as each exhibitor naturally took pride in the products of his own state, and they were a feast for the eye. Toledo, which claims to be the largest market for clover and tim othy seed in the world, exhibited some choice samples of those com modities. Iowa, Illinois and In diana, which excel in corn growing, had samples of corn which were simply wonderful. Some ears of yellow dent from Howard county, Ind., were nineteen inches long and filled to the tips. These were the only ears on exhibition, but the shelled corn from other states was just as nice, and that from Iowa was right up in the fore front. There were also some nice samples from southern Minnesota. But what filled the breast of every Minuesotan with pride was to see every one comparing grades with those of Minnesota. Along one of the walls, in the most con spicuous place in the room, was a table on which was neatly arranged a sample of every grade of pvery I kiiiu uf ^lUiu vviiiuh comes lu market, and in every sample was a card showing the grade given it by the state inspection department. No one noticed Toledo, or St. Louis, for instance, comparing its No. 1 or No. 2 wheat with similar grades from Baltimore or Chicago or Buf falo, but every one was comparing his official samples with those of Minnesota. The latter was the synosure of all eyes, and every one was anxious to find by actual com parison the difference, if any, between Minnesota grades and those of his own state. This, however, was only one of the many incidents which showed that Minnesota grades were recognized as nearest the proper standard and the most nearly uniform. There were dele gates here who bitterly deuounced the principle of graiu inspection by a state, but they appeared as anxious as any of the rest to make com parisons with Minnesota—in other words to get some valuable pointers. Aud this is perhaps a good time to state, in order to clinch a former statement, that the national associa tion of chief grain inspectors, (the heads of the inspection depart ments) which held its annual meet ing at the same time the grain dealers' meeting was held, agreed by a unanimous vote to recommend the Minnesota rules for spring wheat grading to the bodies which they respectively represented. As suming that their recommendations will be accepted and put into effect, it means that hereafter Minnesota will make the rules and set the standard for the grading of prac tically all the spring wheat bought and sold on this continent, and the most of that in Europe. This is a tribute which would not be paid to the inspection department of this state if the work of its inspectors were not skillfully and con cien tiously performed. But to get back to the exhibits, the one which attracted the most attention was the one from New Orleans. This embraced not only the different kinds of grain grown in Louisana, but choice specimens of sugar cane, growing cotton, banana stalks, bundles of rice and mattress moss. These were brought because it was thought thev would be a novelty up in this latitude, and such they really proved. One stalk of cane was 16 feet high, and a banana stalk was only an inch or two shorter. Some of the cotton bowls were green, some were just bursting and some were entirely open with the cotton hanging in bunches ready for the picker. The rice straw resembled so closely the wild rice of the northern part of this state that only an expert could tell them apart. A rice crop, while growing, depends almost as much upon water as upon soil, and it is not sufficient that the soil be wet the water must entirely cover the straw. On this account rice land always abuts a river or canal from which the water may be turned on and off as occasion demands. The seed is sown by hand and harrowed in. When it is through the soil the water is turned on during the night and run off in the morning or if YOUR LIFE depends on the proper action of your Liver and Kidneys.

Laird=Nortoi\ Yards the day is cloudy it is left on all day. The more water the better, except that the field must not be flooded while the sun is shining. The crop is cut, harvested and threshed much as we harvest wheat and oats. Rice growing requires much hard work and attention, and prominent among the grower's equipments are rubber boots and a row boat. The mattress moss grows on the branches of trees in many of the southern states. It does not grow froom root or seed, but is a fungus growth, due to certain conditions of tropical climate. It is a soft, hairy substance, of a dark, drab color, and sometimes its curly, kinky form reaches from the uppermost branch es of the tree to the very ground. If not removed it will, in time, kill a young tree or one that is lacking in vitality. The darkies gather it, and after drying it, put it in bales and ship it to chair and mattress manufacturers. Some of the darkies make their living in this way. Redwood Roller Mills Best, Diamond Straight, Tip Top, W. M. T. The Genuine vs. Counterfeits. The genuine is always better than a coun terfeit, but the truth of this statement i never more forcibly realized or more thor oughly appreciated than when vou compare the genuine DeWitt's Witch Hazel salve with the many counterfeits and worthless substitutes that are on the market. W. S Led'ietter, of Shreveport. La., says: '-After using numerous other remedies without benefit, one box of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve cure* me."
