• • the millers and the big grain compa nies, who make it a practice to doc tor the farmers' wheat when they get a hold of it say, presto, Mr. Farmer, we are now going to put your wheat on a new test: the protein test in other words. The wheat will have to stand the muscle building test Now it seems to me that after thesemanySusandrof years thS wheat has been grown, that the flour mille- and the hie grain outfits of our dav iust discovered* that wheat has a muscle building duality. Whv didn't somebody know this before 7 There must be a reason Let's reason it out " * ' The groat bulk of the serine- wheat didn't feme through hi TtTould t __. * _ _, , , a rather°early 00 frosts 'fhe^wheat looked fine and weighed up good. So in order to work »other game on the wheat farmers by the gang, the protein test was put across. Now, as we know, the millers have a standard test for wheat before it goes into flour and it is 12 per cent protein. A short time ago a car of wheat from Dutton. Mont., brought on the Minneaolis market ,65 cents over July option. The 'wheat in question did not grade very high un der the standards set by the United States. It graded No. 3 Dark North ern, spring and tested 56 Vt pounds tc. the bushel. The question is now: what did the farmer who raised this. 05 cent premium wheat get? The wheat in question test«! by J J * ♦ The •i» I Open Forum | NIC ELROY FÂR111EK WRITES ON GRAIN GRADING QUESTION Dear Editor, Producers News. How the farmer gets stung on the present system of wheat grading! r lhe farmer who raises wheat surely has a lot to contend with. When he hauls in his wheat to the elevator, the first question that is sprung on him is that he wheat has a good col or but is light in weight. Well and good. So the next year when he starts to sell his wheat, the grain buyer will tell him that his wheat has good weight but it hasn't color. So year after year this kind of a stunt is played on him until the 1924 wheat came on the market. So Most 1924 the protein test 19 per cent, of the spring wheat raised in tested from 10 peT cent to ll x /2 per cent. The millers and grain mixers standard for flour is 12 per cent. Now let us an ^e uk ff ® s p ü r u ^k 01 U?T s going to be worked again this year, the farmers again going to demand that each and every load of grain that he hauls into the elevator be graded, according to its protein' value. It's sure going tc. be a big black eye for the farmer-owned elevators, for as I understand it, these testing machines are no play things and furthermore they will have to hire an expert ehern ist to test every load. What are we going to do about it. The line ele vators will get by the same as usual but where is the farmer-owned ele vators going to get off at? +mi„ B I MCELROY B. L. McELKO 1 . Mr. Editor: Ever since the automobile dementia infested the county, it became peril-! ous and unsafe to travel anywhere with horse«, on account of the fore going specie^ of 1 demented human-1 kind, auto roadhogs, auto maniacs and auto fools who have taken leave of their sense and faculties. Some are blind and deaf. Some have gone so far into mania that they have got ten inflicted with blind staggers and become stark, staring "mad," and that they have failed to make hash out of me is not their fault. They have developed the speed mania and harbor the idea that they own the whole of the road and act according ly. There have been incidents where ff has been almost futile to search for safety in time to avoid catas-1 trophies. Twice I came within a hair's breadth of being mangled on the S curve two and one-half miles c.ut of Plentywood southeast, on ac-1 count of careless automobile drivers, who care nothing for someone else's life or property as they have no sense left to realize their own danger, Another incident happened several years ago. On the day A. C. Town ley was to descend at Medicine Lake in his aeroplane, I was coming from Plentywood when an auto load of people approached from behind. 11 knew they were crazy that day ,so 11 turned out on the road that turns in to N. L. Nelson's residence property, and gave the entire road to the auto, but the driver was blind enough not to see the road but crashed right in to my buggy from behind and lifted me out of my seat. The force hitched the traces, broke the neckyoke straps and damaged one wheel. The horses got frightened beyond control but there was one man in that crowd who had sense enough to jump out and assist me or serious consequences would have happened. Should such fools be allowed to drive an auto? There is or should be a law to pro tect people from such careless meth ods, but we assume that jackass they call law, has been run over by an auto maniac and killed or put out of existence or else is in hiding some where, to save his life for ten or twelve years past. Ever since we got a graded piece ROAD HOGS AND AUTOMANIACS un I ! Gaston B Means former Daugh i erty aid as he registered in at At«* ' fSta prison to s?^e a two year sentence for conspiracy.
