Williams, in the Northern Re view: In rummaging through records of the Interior Department in Washing ton the other day I ran across one of the most unique official reports proba blv ever made by a government offi cial. The document referred to was a regular report made by Inspector of I.atid offices Hills of the regular staff and was made to Hon. Dinger Herman, t'omuiis-ioiier of the General Land Mi re.

In to thd vault where two of the clerks are quartered, I found an old gasoline stove with cooking out fit. and a Hock of geese, ducks, wood chunks. cayotes, etc., which had been prepared some years ago by a taxi dermist, and in the smaller of these rooms 1 found what looked like the upheavel of an old graveyard, as upon an old table and in among the debris and rubbish was skull bones, mum mies and hobgoblins. Not being versed in the art. I am unable to ex plain their value. Take these decora tions and have them from one room to the other covered with a thick dust that has been permitted to lay undis turbed ever since the land office has been located here, and it is no wonder that Mr. Prank Ely, one of the clerks, is languishing in the pest house with a dose of small-po*. for there is no telling what fermentation is going on in such places. The agitation must be great. I know it is with me, but I conclude.', to face it and take my chances. It is admitted by the entire office force that these conditions have existed during the life of this office. and when I call attention to these points, they wonder, if this was not pleasing, that former inspectors did not complain.

In former years all this passed through the ports of New York and Philadelphia, but a fractional in crease in freight rates between the Lakes and the East has diverted the trade to Southern ports, while experi ments are being made in direct ship ments from Chicago by way of the Lakes, the St. Lawrence River and the Atlantic Ocean. The cotton plant first came to Amer ica from Asia now the greater part of the Central-Asian crop is grown from American cotton seed. Ameri can cultivators till the soil, which watered by an American irrigation sys tem. Yankee gins clean the fibre. American compotmds press the cotton bands, and finally the coton finds its way to Moscow over a railroad lu:ilt with American capital, and is I'trned into cloth by second-hand machinery from an American cotton factory, to compete abroad with the American prints. Another regular article of export to Central Asia is the Ohio grapevine I cutting. The vineyards of Central' Asia are all offshoots from American vines, and the fruit is prized above all others in Russia proper for its doji cacv and flavor. Twenty to thirty tons of American grapes to the acre is a common yield in Central Asia, and as the American vine is free from para sites, it is being introduced every where the world over, from South Africa to Northern China and Japan. We still export tobacco plants to Rus sian Asia, so that the Russian tobacco, grape, cotton and wheat crops are all American, once removed. siouer if he has evevr experienced aj ins? a drug in the Hagdad market, and receiver who never looks where he is the supply of old lamps Is rapidly giv going to sit down, who shaves once in ing out as our lamp trade with Turkey seven weekt. and has whiskers tlia' flourish upon the high spo'n oniv. who indulges in the use of a cob pipe dur in gtlie most of the office hours, who walks at least twico around the stove when he starts for the safe to deposit fourteen dollars taken for a home stead entry, and a rogist-r who stoops in crossing the street to get under the electric light wires, who combs his hair with a whisk broom, who cleans his necktie with a piece of sand paper, and when he changes his shirt and other linen he simply puts on that which he took off ten days previous without its being laundried.

The experiment station will then be in bet ter position to give advice upon this subject and to take measures against the invasions of weeds already estab lished. and against the new ones which are continually invading the territory. The farmers of this state should have greater and more accurate knowl edge of the weeds that infest their farms. You should know bow the weeds get on your farm, and how they propagate themselves when there. You should know the kind and amount of injury they do and the most ap proved methods of eradication. You should be able to recognize the pres ence. tlie kind and the amount of foul weed seed in grain. With this knowl edge and a practical application of it, you would be an annual gainer to the extent of many hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is out of the question to hope to get rid of the weeds entirely. It is be lieved to be quite practicable, however to decrease their ravages materially. This is to be brought about in the first I place by a more thorough appreciation I of the damage done by woods and a greater interest taken in the subject. When the farmer becomes really inter in the work, the battle is half won.

The botanist of the agricultural col lege at Fargo wants information about weeds. An appeal is made to the farmers of the state to assist the bo tanical department in this matter, in return the department will give infor mation that will lie of great benefit to the agricultural interests of the state.

The statute books may be covered with the best of weed laws, but if the majority of the people do not care to have them enforced, they are of no value. It is of prime importance for us to work in harmony with you. Two facts are evident: First, the weeds are here with no one in particular to blame second, you are farming in this state for a living. It generally would be unwise and even suicidal to employ expensive labor, or use compli cated methods of farming to get rid of weeds. On the other hand, it is well known that the weeds cause a great annual loss, and it is further es tablished that weeds can be decreased ir quantity if some of the farming methods in vogue today are modified to some extent. It is believed that no radical change need be made, to bring about a greater income from a farm with but a slight increase in cost re sulting not only in a decrease of weeds hut in a continued increase in soil fer tility. These changes lie along lines of crop rotation, extensive farming, and pure seed grain. Resides the eradication brought about by general methods of farming, there are special methods for the treat ment of particular weeds such as wild oats and Canada thistle. These weeds can be almost or quite exterminated without much change from the regular rotation, whereas they increase with wonderful rapidity, if treated with many of the farming methods used to day. If you desire information in regard to plants growing on your farm, we will be glad to help you as far as pos sible. In all cases, when plants are sent in, it is of direct help to us, for we learn when harmful plants are be ing introduced, and the distribution of the ones already here.
