Seeds of Alfalfa, Vetsch and Hardy Northern Fruits Brought to U. 8, WASHINGTON, March 2.—Secretary Wilson of the agricultural department, in pursuance of his determination, as far as practical, to utilize the agri cultural seed appropriation in secur ing "new, rare and valuable" seeds, die* patched Professor Hansen, professor of horticulture at Brookings, S. D., to Eastern Europe and Asia to secure new seeds and plants, and to ascertain what the people at the original cradle of mankind had been doing to adapt plants to their conditions. Professor Hansen is now preparing his report for publication, alter a trip involving many thousands of miles of travel in Eastern Russia, trans*Caucasia, Rus sian Turkestan, Western China aud Siberia. The immense distance trav eled, the change of climates, and espe cially the overland journey iu Asia, which was a very rough and adven turesome one, tested the endurance of the man sent on this mission. The trip was a successful one, and many promising varieties were obtained. About three carloads of seed will be distributed to state experiment statious and others. The seeds, it is expected, will be chiefly of value in the arid re gions, the purpose of Professor Han sen's trip being to obtain such as were distinguished for resistance to drought znd heat. Tbe result,s of this investigation ought to be of considerable value to northern Minnesota and the Dakotas on account of similarity of climate, soil, rainfall, eto. Among the findings are: ID Central Asia, a marked feature of agriculture was .found to be tbe native alfalfa, which is a distinct sub-species of the common alfalfa, and greatly superior to it in extent of root system and capo city for resisting drought and heat. This has been shown by actual trial, and it has been introduced by Russia into the dry steppes in the region east of the Volga river in eastern Russia, and it is also coming into cultivation in southern Siberia. The Siberian Vetsob, as grown in the Vloga region of east Russia, was ob tained in large quantities for general distribution. This plant has been widely tested at tbe American agricultnral ex periment stations, and is now considered to be one of the best fodder plants for all purposes of the United States. Select seed of Russian red clover was also ob tained for limited trialB, as Russian ex perimenters have found their native clover to be hardier than that commonly grown in America. Among tbe fruits were: Tbe musk melons of Russian Turke stan, Bokhara, Khiva and trans-Cau casia, were deemed worthy of introduc tion Many varieties run from 25 to 35 pounds in weight, oval in shape, flesh snow white, melting and superior in quality to any American variety. Seed of a large number of varieties was saved from melons bought on the spot. A large quantity of pits of the ohoicest varieties of thd Vladimir race of cherries of East Russia was obtained from care fully selected fruit. These came prac tically true to seed, bear fruit of large size and excellent quality, and endure forty degrees below zero, Fahrenheit. These trees, however, area distinct raoe of cherry, and must be grown from seed or sprouts in the true Russian fashion, as they are short lived and tender when grafted or budded on tbe common stooks of the nurseries. One thousand plants, tbe entire ob tainable stock, was secured of a new species of raspberries, of semi-recumbent habits, only discovered by explorations in the mountains of Northern China. The fruit is orange yellow in color, of large size and of peculiar but very pleas ant flavor.Tbe plant has proven hardy at St. Petersburg. Tnis is a new departure in raspberries and is worthy of general trial. Hardy varieties of apple trees which do not root kill were brought over. From Turkestan, China and Trans-Caucasia, native varieties of apricot, plum, peach, cherry, apple, pear, quince, grape, oleas ter and other fruitB, and a collection of vegetables were obtained. Also a col lection of new ornamental trees, shrubs from Sibera, Turkestau and tbe Cau casus, with small lots of a large number of new .legumes, oereals, grasses, tre^s, fruits, shrubs and ornamental plants, etc., recently discovered by Russian scientific experiments.
