Wast.injton. Dec. 18. Hereto
fore tho hardy, glassy wheats of
the durum group have been re
ceived with but little favor in
this country. Now, however, as
a result of the efforts of the
United Stutes department of
agriculture to establish these
wheats, there is being manifest
ed a great change of opinion as
to their merits, in viow of their
probable complete utilization in
the future for tho manufacture
of macaroni. In Europe they
are called hard wheats and in
this country they have not until
recently been sufliciently well
known to receive a special name.
The term macaroni wheat given
; to this class of wheat by the
i department is becoming rapidly
'adopted, and its application is
j already pretty well understood.
j Among all wheats macaroni
wheats are the best adapted to
i regions of intense heat and
j Tho adaptability of durum
wheats to tho conditions of our
semiarid districts, the market
for macaroni wheats, their culti
vation, distribution, churaoteris
tics, and effects of local varia
tions in soil und climate are
fully sot forth.
During tho season just passed
these wheuts had another oppor
tunity to show their superior
drouth-resistance. In largo
portions of the Northwest whore
the ordinary wheat crop was
almost an entire lailure, maca
roi.i wheat produced a very fair
crop of grain that was very little
shriveled; while in Southwest
Texas, whore grain growing has
been uniformly a failure, they
yielded well and produced grain
of apparently excellent quality.
It is tho writer's belief that the
thorough establishment of this
new wheat industry will be of
the greatest benefit to agricul
ture in the semi arid plains. A
million or more of acres can
thus be given to profitable wheat
raising which on account or
drouth have heretofore eithor
beou ontirely idle or less profit
dbly employed, In a few yoars'
time the result ought to be an
addition of thirty to fifty million
bushels to tho annual wheat
production of tho Great Plains
alone Tho agricultural area
will bo extended much farther
westward and the necessity of
rrlation will thoreby lw dimjn
To The Public
I am Informed by tho superin
tendent of the railway mail sor
vice of this division that from
reports by the Temple Sun An-
golo railway mail clerks it tip
pears they are unable to prompt
ly dispatch tho letters wnicharo
mailed in i hoi rear at San Anuolo.
and Unit delay in transmission of
said letters is unuvoidublo bo
cause of tho great nuantltv of
mail given tho clerks bv this
office, which mail has precedence
over an others, as Is also tho
case with that received tv them
from ovory pusloflice on tho
route. One cleric, indeed, ro
ports 808 letters deposited in his
car after tho elostnir of maim at
this ofllcc, uud addB that lie cur
ried twenty-fivo of these beyond
destination, including Coleman
in the first stutions from San
It is evident that letters dls
patched in this manner do not
reach their destination any soon
er than if deposited in the post
ofllce after the departure of tho
mail. Obviously tho praaMcc of
fors uhsolntolv no advantage to
tho writer imr imposes upon the
railway mail clerks the necessity
of making reports of delayed
mail without the remotest pos
nihility of an adjustment of tho

bo dispatched which are brought
to the post oflico one half hour
before tho departure of tho mail
For tho convenience of the clerk
in charge and in ordor that the
dispatch may not bo placed in
jeopardy, tho luw ulso requires
the mail to leave tho postoflico
ono half hour boforn tho depart
urooftho train, but. this limif of
the time is left to tho discretion
or tho postmaster and may bo
shortened by him if. in his opin
ion, less time is sufheiont to
transfer the mails from the post
office, to tho car.
In conformity with this provi
sion I have ordered tho hour ol
8:45 p. m. is tho time limit for
doparturo of tho mails from Iho
postoflico. To tho public, tho
mail is legally closed at 8:15 p
m. Tho interim is needed for
assortment, postmarking and
disributton of the letters taken
np at tho very last moment of
closing, also for tho fving of
about 110 packages of Inttors,
tho closing and dolivorv of 12 to
16 sacks of second, third and
fourth class mail, tho delivery
of from 20 lo 40 receipts there
for, and tho final closing and de
livery of tho letter mail pouch.
As a rule, however, all letters
brnnirht in between the hours of
8:15 and 8:85 and oven 8:40 p. m
aro dispatched by tho day's
tniil. but, this is not alwuvs
practicable, and when deluv
occurs it is no greater than if
those "last minnto" letters had
been mniled at tho car whoro tho
clerk hns no more timo to handle
them on his run than has been
allowed for their handling by
the clerks in tho post office.
Prom tho ubovo may readily
be seen that every effort is mado
