NEW KIND WHEAT WIDELY GROWN Kanred Has Been Successfully, Raised in Kansas; Has Fine Yield. Deep interest in the success of Kan red wheat reported from Kansas is being shown , by specialists of the Bureau of -Plant Industry of the United States Department of Agri culture. According to reports this year's acreage of Kanred is estimated by Kansas authorities to have been about .-jOO.OOO acres. Of this total area Ij.000 to 20,000 acres, grown by selected farmers, have been carefully inspected in the field by representa tives of the Kansas Agricultural Col lege and certified as furnishing sourc es of seed of high quality and purity. Kanred is a variety of hard red winter wheat developed by the Kansas Agricultural Exeprimcnt Station. It was obtained by selection from the Crimean variety of hard red winter wheat introduced from Russia by the Bureau by the Bureau of Plant In dustry of the Federal Department of Agriculture and widely grown in Kansas and adjacent States. It was developed by the Kansas scientists with .special reference to conditions there and has proved to be a better yielder by :i to 5 bushels to the acre compared with other hard red winter wheats. Its better yield is due in part to greater resistance to winterkilling and to rust and in part to its slightly earlier ripening say specialists of the department.

'MAY CHANGE ME THOD CURING WEED Artificial Heat Is Likely To Be ' Reso.-ted To More Generally. ! Found Safer. Lcington, Ky., Sept ,'l. In the an nual report of the Kentucky Experi ment Station which is just off presi. Director Thomas Cooper writes: "For several years past the Experiment Station has been attempting to deter mine a method of curing hurley tobac co by artificial heat. Enough work has been completed to show that as high grade of leaf can be obtained by flue-curing at a relatively low tem perature as by air curing, thus elimin ating completely the danger of house burning With the increasing importance of the hurley tobacco industry, it is pro bable that the use of artificial heat may be advantageously resorted to more generally. This would hold true especially in seasons when climate conditions are unfavorable for curing. Scarity of Wood During the past year, curing ex periments were conducted with dark tobacco as grown in Western Ken tucky. Export tobaccos of this re gion are open-fire cured giving them a strong flavor of creosote. The grow ' ing scarcity of wood in many regions is making the curing process very expensive and i ntrue time it will be almost impossible to secure the neces- sary supplies of wood at a reasonable j figure. The experiments at the Experi ment Station were designed to deter- I mine the possibility of accomplishing I results equivalent to those obtained by open wood firing bv a combina- Bank of Hardinsburg HTrustCo.
