By Frede
One of the most striking illtistri
ions or a Denent derived by a peep!
ecause those ^engaged in the admii
rtration of its government took ir
elligent thought , is to' be seen in th
ield of wheat from certain areas 1
he west that would otherwise hav
cc-n harren. This has come aboi
tirough the introduction of Durui
heat from Russia and its plautin
x certain regions to which it is p?
uliarly adapted and where it grow
tore advantageously than does an
ther variety.
Unusual Situation.
This spring a situation arises tha
ives Durum wheat, just now tboi
ugh ly established, an importane
lat if would not otherwise have hai
liia comes about because of the ' ei
rtence of a most unuSual world si1
atlon, with relation to the whea
upply, that has been developed b
tic war. Wheat prices were but mot
rately high last fall when the cro
f winter wheat for the coming lvai
est. was being sown. These price
id to the planting of but a model
tely increased acreage. But in th
lid die of the winter, conditions arcs
hat sent wheat soaring to unheard <
rices. It was too late for thes
rices to affect the planting of wii
er wheat, but.the spring wheat wa
of to he sown. The time for it
lanting is the months of March an
upvil. This work is just now gettin
rell under way.
When wheat is bringing 75 cents
ushel tbere is a profit, of but bo cent
1 growing it. But when it is brinj
ig $d.50 a bushel, the cost of mal
tg the crop remains the same, whil
tie profit on each bushel harveste
jmps from 15 cents to 90 cents. "Wit
liese added possibilities of profit,
5 but natural to suppose that ever
ere of spring wheat that can h
rowded into cultivation will be plai
cd. So is a new importance give
3 the crop that America borrowe
rora Russia.
It was a decade and a half ago tha
tie department of agriculture bega
jokihg about for means of increasin
tie wheat producing area. Amon
ther things it was worrying abon
ie great stretch of plains that lie b(
tveen the Missouri river and th
Jocky mountains, and upon which th
ioneers had been trying in vain t
atablish homesteads. While thes

gtt that the yields were not depend
ble and on the whole, could not sup
ort farms. Yet here was a vast are
inch, if it could but be made to pre
uce, might maintain an empireGoes
to Russia.
Mhrk A. Carleton was an-explore
f the department of agricultur
hose specialty was wheat. He wa
ent to Russia, there to look- ove
le wheat producing areas and fin
ut whatever he might that would b
f use in America. He traveled ove
reat stretches from the Black sea t
ozen Siberia. It was on the boi
erland of European and Asiatic Bus
a that he encountered a region wher
II the conditions were no nearly thos
r the great plains in America, tha
3 would have thought be was o:
lose stretches but for one fact. *Th
eople lived on the Russian steppe
grew crops, inese crops were o

tinfall here was greater than ii
merica, but, upon an examinatioi
ito the facts, he found this was no
ue. Russians were raising whea
ider the conditions with which w
iled. It looked as though ther.
ust be some difference in the whea
self. It was a clue.
The wheat grown here was a stiffl;
jared, flinty variety such as was no
be found in the United States
uantities of seed were accumulates
id sent on the long journey. Ar
ving in the United States, experi
tents were he gun to try out th
ussian wheats at different points
hey were planted at many experi
ient stations, particularly in th
reat plains regions. Soon it* begai
develop that these wheats had ;
arked advantage over the old varie
bs grown in that region which lie:
ong the border of Minnesota and th
akotas. They would yield crops tha

Serious Obstacle. .
But the new wheat soon encounter
1 a serious obstacle. The miller
lid it was so hard that they couh
at convert it into flour. The name
urum, signifies hard. There was n<
jestion of the flinty qualities of th
bw wheat. The experts insisted
owever, that this was not necessar
y a serious abjection. They potntei
Jt the fact that all that was neede<
> adapt the mills to the new task
as the installation of a different rol
:r, which was not.an expensive mat
sr. They insisted upon the fact tha
urum wheat sold in Efurope for- ;
Igher. price than the-soft varleitic
ad that its superiorities would he es
ublished here as soon as its quail
ies were understood.
But the objection of the miller

'as profitable to vgrow this whes

arieties. Soon it was doterminec
owever, that the differences in pric
ere artificial, that the America
illls had equipped themselves t
rind the harder wheat, and the Dui
m steadily approached the price c
ther varieties. During the last sea
an the Durum has passed othe
rades and steadily sold at a prerr
rai. This is largely due to the Et
opean demand., for in Europe th
reference is steadily given to th
ard varieities. So has the new whea

it products are each year manufactured a
n In the United States from this hard |
wheat. 1
s- Durum Leads*
's The figures are, now available for ?
y a period o? eight years that show the j
relative production of Durum and*jj
other, standard varieties, at certain j
it points. There are, for instance, Edg- f
eley, North Dakota . and Highmorc, |
e South . Dakota, centers of regions to |
i. which this wheat, is peculiarly adapt- 1
ed. Through eight" years the. Durum k
t- i\*heat has yielded about twice the |
it crops of the other wheats. This J
yj means, of course, more than twice S
1- the profits, as it costs as much to a
p grow a poor crop as a good one. In 3
r- dry seasons, also, there is an added a
s advantage in the importation. A lit- |!
-- tie further east where there is more ffl
e, rainfall, the advantage o-f the Durum gj
ej Is from 15 to 25 per cent in yield. In- S
>f to the still dryer regions of the wes- 2
e tern Dalcotas the crop has spread and H
t- shown an increased production of ?
,s per cent. It has surpassed the old g
:s varieties on the plains of .Nebraska, g
d among the dry farms of Colorado and 2
g Wyoming, and has even crowded Its
way down into Kansas which is giv- |j
a en over mostly to winter wheat. The j
.b region.In which it has the advantage
is, however. limited. Where the rajn- I
i- fall is heavy there are varieties that I
e ai'e better fitted. Where winter wheat :
d may be grown to advantage, it is a
h better crop than spring wheat. * But
it! for the great plains, that region that ;
vjwas particularly in need of help; the j
ie| Durum wheat is bringing a new op- i
i- portunity. i
n This season, with high prices' in- g
d viting the planters of spring wheat E
to bring under cultivation every pos- 8
Lt sible acre, there is is lit tic question g
n but that lands will be sown which ?
g' would not otherwise have been farm- B
gj ed. There will be wheat planted for
it small yields that would not have been ?
>- profitable with cheap wheat. There ;
e is no crop that can be grown more I
e cheaply than spring wheat, and thereo
fore no other crop that' can pay so
e small a yield. And there is always
5 the possibility of ail conditions being |
o just right, and: the results being ex- ?
1- ceptionally profitable. So it may be
stated as a certainty that there will a
a be such activity on the great plains
for the next two months as was nev- ra
er known before.
Difficult to Estimate. ?1
r "With a known production of 50,000,-1.
- ??
e wu ousneis or. uurum wneat, it is still p
s difficiilt to estimate the value that g
r has been added to the American crop Sj
(j! because a man who was acquainted w
e ] with the problem-traveled in Russia if
r Nbt all that'amount of grain may he &
0 credited to this introduction, as many {?
_ of these farmers would have grown ra
i_ other wheats had they riot planted this jl
e variety. Rut the increased production j|
e and the yield from lands that would 9
t otherwise have been barren, unques- j
tt tionably adds to the crops of Ameri- g
e can farms, values every year that S
3 mount into the millions. And so a j
,f new land profits by the fact that a J
e strange people on the other side of j
a the world planted, century after cen- !
a tury, under unfavorable conditions, g
? the same sort of wheat, and that
t that wheat gradually developed an
e ability to withstand the severe condi- |
e tions under which it was asked 'to j
t grow.
The United States has profited by w
many crops that were not native to it, a
H There is cotton, for instance, which 2
j had its natural home in the tropics,! g
r^tvuere it 1s- a tree, growing steadily I
ithrough tho seasons. But in the
_| United States it'became a little shrub R
~\ living under such conditions as nature I
e bad never intended for it, and yet fl
served a purpose far beyond that in H
~ its native habitat. There are many n
?i such crops that have developed by B
accident, after having been brought I
a into this country. But Durufn wheat ?
1 is among the first of the important B
products of the soil that has been de- H
liberately introduceds to serve a giv- J
?ien purpose and because man figured H
1 in advance that it would accomplish H
given ends. It is one of the first great B
. successes scored along this line, and X
because the government has taken 3
* thought of the future welfare of its H
, citizens.

Farmers Whose Stock is
Slaughtered Must Wait until
Next Session.
One of'the many contingencies that
have arisen and that .will continue, to
bah up from the failure of the 1915
legislature to reinstate the items of
the appropriation bill vetoed by the
governor and provide additional revenue
for the state, has developed in
the state's apparent inability to pay
its share of the cost of stamping ouC
the foot and mouth disease among the
herds; of Ohio and Berkeley counties.
Joining with the federal department
of t agriculture, the state assisted in
stamping out the disease where it
broke out in these two counties, seventeen
cattle being-killed and buried
inOhio county and . more than two
hundred cattle and nratiy hogs being
slaughtered in Berkeley county, half
of the market value of which must be
paid to the farmers by the state.
That amount is at least $:ti5,000.- The
state has but little money in its fund
to care*for such expense, and at present
it. se&ms probable that the farmers
whose stock was slaughtered will have
to wait for the half of the money
coming from the state until the meeting
of the next legislature.
