Cars Spend Night Here and 350
Visitors See Exhibits and
Hear Goat Explain Them
800 Line Sam, the goat that dis
courses learnedly by radio, talked the
gospel of more and better sheep to
3so visitors to the Soo Line sheep
special at the local depot between
7:30 and midnight Friday night. This
morning the special departed for
Washburn and Wilton for further
demonstrations there—at the former
town in the morning and at the lat
ter in the evening.
Monday morning the train will give
a demonstration at Underwood and
in the evening at Van Hook. Tuesday
it will show at Douglas in the after
noon and at Makotl in the evening,
while Wednesday afternoon it will be
at Butte and in the evening at Max.
The balance of the week it will be in
the Drake-Fordville territory.
Thus far the special has presented
the campaign for more and better
sheep in North Dakota and the Red
river valley of Minnesota to more
than 16,000 persons, some of the
smaller towns along the line turning
out around 1,000 persons each.
Facts Presented by Charts
The visitors to the cars—two with
the exhibit and the third living quar
ters for the lecturing personnel—en
tered the car which has the layout of
facts on the raising of sheep and their
relation to diversified farming. In this
car 800 Line Sam, the goat, occupied
a central position, and the visitors
were given answers to their inquiries
through Capricornus Sam. It was very
mystifying, and has been an attrac
tion for the farmers and their chil
dren along the line. The motive of
this hocus-pocus was to Impress the
facts by the novelty of the radio goat.
The layout in this car included two
mimic farms supposed to be operated
by brothers, one having livestock on
his property, the other devoting all
his energy to grain alone. The cattle
farm was made to show new buildings
and better crops, while that of the
grain-growing member of the family
was shown as run down and full of
weeds, because there were no sheep
to eat away the latter and keep the
fields clean, while the weeds in turn
smothered the grain crops attempted.
Real grain sprouted from the soil of
the mimic acres, there were running
streams on the tract, and a little
water turtle ambled around under the
midget evergreen trees. /
How to Handle Sheep
There also is a drenching chart and
an exhibit of intestinal parasites, this
teaching the visitors how best to rid
sheep of these. A ewe and lamb af
flicted with the parasites are carried
in the exhibit of real sheep in the
other car, to show the effect of this
ailment. The benefits of straw sheds
are illustrated, a model of a salt
trough with the tar strips around the
border, so that the sheep will tar
their muzzles and thus ward off flies
that parasite eggs, is shown,
and there is a model feed rack that
illustrates how to keep chaff out of
the sheep’s wool—chaff being one of
the foreign matters in the clips that
discriminate against them on the
score of cleanliness.
A chart emphasizes the feeding of
alfalfa and oats and especially stresses
oats as a feed before the breeding
Orders For 37 Cars Signed Up
In the sheep car exhibits of Hamp
shires. Rambouillets and Cotswolds
are carried. These exhibits were
loaned to the special by Moore and
Graves, Leonard Kriewald and F. F.
Reimars, Carrington breeders.
As a result of the exhibits, the train
has booked orders for about 37 cars
of sheep to be delivered in the next
few days by the Soo Agricultural de
partment al various points along the
line. September delivery of 16,000
head more is expected to result from
the demonstration.
E. F. Johnson, general agricultural
agent of the 800 Line at Minneapolis,
is in charge of the train. Harry Mc-
Nutt, agent of the Bismarck territory,
is conducting this end of the tour. S.
G. Denner, of the college animal hus
bandry extension service, has joined
the lecturing force in that capacity
and Jens Uhrenfeldt, the Soo Line
potato expert, also has been added to
assist in the sheep demonstrations.

Rye Poor and Some Flax Not
Up; Rains Would Be Big
Benefit Right Now
An Associated Press review* of
North Dakota crops finds corn look
ing better at this time than for sev
eral years, but it needs rain badly
within a week to not suffer. Wheat
may exceed half of the average yield.
Barley is fair, but oatw very poor.
Flax looks well except late sown, some
of which has not even come up. Rye
is a poor crop, excepting an oc
casional field, and ready to cut.
Pastures and hay lands are fair but
need rain.
County reports included in the A. P.
review are:
Fargo—Crops in Cass county are
spotted, experts report. Late planted
grain on spring plowing is thin and
will give light yields. Considerable
flax acreage did not germinate un
til too late to make a crop that will
A considerable area of the county,
however, where small grain was
planted on fall plowing, will produce
fair crops. Last fall was one of the
