His ex perts in the department of agriculture not only have reported yields per acre far in excess of Ilinois corn crops per acre from orchards of peaches and apples and the still more profitable specialties of ginseng, mangoes, avo cades, figs, grape fruit and pineapples, but yields also from "straight farm ing" in various sections where the staple crops have been supplanted by specialty field crops. In the northwest speltz, durum wheat and flax have done much to add to settlers' incomes under ad verse conditions. The durum wheat crop in the regions of small rainfall now totals $30,000,000 a year, hut the value is low per acre. Alfalfa has been seized upon both east and west as a high-profit crop as well as a soil restorer. The annual crop is now put at $100,000,000. In the southwest, broom corn has won a sweeping vic tory where soil and climatic condi tions were favorable. In the pan handle of Texas It has reached its maximum of success, the average yield there having been found to be three-fourths of a ton, with a value of $100 to $150, per acre.

Burgunder was put on the stand to testify to fals own statistical compu tations concerning "Rights of Stock holders." Within a minute he had members of the commission pouring over copies of his tables and all coun sel listening to analytical interpreta tions and deductions of figures. Rapid fire calculation made by the witness in response to two or three inquiries were sufficient, to let him and his tables pass by unchallenged.

ALFALFACROP ISWORTH $100,000,000 PER YEAR bonanza ranches of North Dakota, and in the vicinity of Dalhart over 2,000 acres of broom corn were raised. In one case, near Amarillo, a field of 1,400 acres netted the grower over $140 an acre in fact, he was offered and refused that figure for his crop in the field, but decided to install his own machinery and manufacture the brooms and market them. Other broom corn crops in the same district near to Amarillo and Soncy, Bushland, Wildorado, Vega, Ontario and Adrian have done equally well on a smaller scale. In the district known as the Eastern Panhandle, 5,000 acres of broom corn were grown and 22,000 acres of kafir corn. No region in the country which re cently was ranches and now is filling up with a farming population has more generaly adopted what are re garded as novelties in farm crops than the Texas Panhandle. The reports covering 125,000 acres in one district show 43,330 acres of corn, 20,120 acres of cotton, several thousand acres of alfalfa, broom corn, kafir corn and miflet, and only 17,500 acres of wheat. One farmer in Hansford county, in the panhandle, grows 400 acres of al falfa almost solely for the seed crop, making alfalfa seed pay him from 50 to 80 bushels per acre, leaving his hay for his own cattle and hogs. In the southwest of Texas rice grow ing has met with varying success.
