ORIGIN OF SOME OF THE BAD WEED SEEDS. To the Farmers and Seed Dealers of the State of North Dakota: The examinations at the Seed Con trol laboratory and the inspections made in the field are giving some very interesting information as to one origin of the worst weed seeds which affect agriculture. The fol lowing notes will be of interest to you: Very many of the brome grass seed samples which we have been able to examine contain high per centages t)f quack grass seed. Slen der wheat-grass seed is also a source of distribution of quack-grass seed. Canada blue grass, lawn mixtures and Kentucky blue grass which con tain admixtures of Canada blue grass are very liable to contain the Also Special on Ladies' Oxfords $1.95 seeds of Canada thistle. Alsike clover and white clover seeds seem to be the chief source of distribut ing field sorrel and catch fly. In deed, almost any sort of small seed that can be raked up off the ground is liable to be in alsike. The field sorrel is one of the most destructive types of weeds in light or sandy soils. No farmer or dealer shouiu buy or sow any one of these kinds of seed without a very careful in spection. Millet and flax are the chief dis tributors of field mustard, hare's ear mustard French weed and false flax. Red clover is a great distrib utor of buckhorn, ribbed plantain, lance-leaved plantain or so-called ribbed grass. Alfalfa seed appear to be the chief distributor of dodder and sweet clover.

With regard to the quack-grass in the brome grass, some of the wholesale seedsmen are informing the local purchasers that there is no brome grass seed'to be had that does not contain quack-grass. Some simply inform the intended purchas er that they have a good quality of brome grass seed, but that it does not comply with the North Dakota law. In these cases it is a good thing to remember that not all the farms in North Dakota and Minne sota as yet raise quack-grass, and so you have reasonable right to doubt the statement that there is no brome grass seed free from quack-grass seed.

I think you will agree with me that there is no "good" seed of any kind which contains Canada thistle, sow-thistle, dodder or quack grass, and that it is better not to sow any brome grass seed or sell any brome grass seed if it must car ry with it the seeds of quack-grass. The seed laboratory only has a chance to examine a small package of seed, always less than a pound and usually but a few ounces. If in a few ounces of brome grass seed we find even two or three quack grass seeds, what will you as a pur chaser distribute per acre with each 16 or 20 pounds of brome grass? This is the question for you to have in mind.

Special Furniture Market Da Offe Elsewhere in This Issue that the seed is good, but does not comply with the North Dakota law. Many farmers wonder why we ask them to take the sample of seed from the closed bag in the presence of a witness, hoth persons signing a statement that it is a fair sample of the seed purchased. The reader will understand why when I say that this is a good legal procedure and fair to all persons concerned. Samples taken in the manner indi cated are better evidences than ones less carefully taken. Furthermore, we must publish our results on such examination, and we cannot do so on insufficient data. If the farmers and small seed dealers of the state wish to help hold all seedsmen on their merits, they will not neglect to give us the full information asked for when .«\ S Stparating, dipping and scalloping the web of laces. and a display of illustrations of mechanical de~ vices requisite in the art of fine lace making.
