town. ARBOR DAY PROCLAMATION. Next to the soil our forests are our most valuable resource, contributing to the making of nearly everything we use in home or profession, regu lating the water supply and water flow of stream and river, warming the cold winds of winter, cooling the hot winds of summer, conserving the mositure for the nourishment of all plant life, and feeding the ever flow ing springs of pure refreshing water giving life, strength and fertility to the soil itself and protection to an animal and bird life. Unlike our other resources, they need not become ex hausted except through our own fault. By united effort we can re sto.e the natural to all its original beauty, and grow forests where the trees have never grown before. Every lot or parcel of waste or unsightly lanci in the state should be made a beauty spot, useful and valuable, by planting in trees, and for the purpose of encouraging the planting and growing of forest trees in this state, and in accordance with a long estab lished custom, I do, hereby designate Friday, April Twenty-second, as Ar* bor Day for this state, and I earnest ly recommend and request the officers of the different cities and towns throughout the state to unite with the county superintendents of schools, and the superintendents and teachers of the public schools of the state, in the preparation and execution of suitable exercises for and on Arbor Day. And I further recommend and request each free holder in the state to plant as many trees as possible on his own freehold, and let us make this coming Arbor Day a day long to be remembered in the state. Given under my hand and the great seal of the state of North Da kota, at the capitol. this ninth day o- April, A. D., 1910. JOHN BURKE, Governor. By the Governor: ALFRED BLA1SDELL. Secretary of State- .j, AN IMPORTANT REPORT. The third annual report of the superintendent of the demonstration farms for North Dakota is just from the press. The first paragraph which reads as follows will give a good idea of the report. "The report includes data of twenty-one demonstration farms, six of which were established by the station in 1906, located at Beach, New Salem, Bismarck, Ross, Granville, and Lakota six of which were established in 1907, at Bath-j gate, Page, Larimore, Flaxton, Car rington ,and Sanborn: and nine of: which were established in the spring of 1909 at Hazelton, Washburn,! Jamestown, Wahpeton, Portland Jet., Hoople, Starckweather, Rugby and McLeod respectively." A little fur ther along the following statement 1s made: "The demonstration farms indicate that any armer can grow an average yield of wheat exceeding twenty bushels per acre with ordin ary farm tools, such as he is now us ing, if he will keep enough stock to eat up the corn produced on one fifth of his land and the hay and oats produced on another one-fifth. This stock will produce enough manure to fertilize at least one-fifth of his land each year, if applied at a moderate rate. In this way three-fifths of the farm is In marketable grain crops, which, If properly tilled, will yield a much larger return than the whole farm does where grain only is grown as on the average farm." This is certainly good news as the yields of wheat of this state are now in the neighborhood of twelve or thirteen bushels, and if they can be increased to over twenty it will more than double the profits as it takes the first ten or twelve bushels to pay for the labor ,eac, concerned in pro ducing a crop and what comes above this amount can be credited to pro fits. Another very important thing about the results secured is this that they come from the different parts fthe state and are worked out un der actual farm conditions so that Grand Opening sale of lots Wednesday, April 27th, 1910 I E S $150 to $500 for lots 50x142 feet.

In suming up the yields the follow ing statement is made: "On the six original farms started in 1906 the wheat averaged 26V bushels per acre machine measure.
