VOLUME VII NUMBER 34 OROFINO, CLEARWATER COUNTY, IDAHO FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1918. Of Interest to Farmers COBH PRODUCTION IN NORTH IDAHO. Demonstrated to be Successful Crop for Both Grain and Silage. "That field corn is a successful crop for both grain and silage in Northern Idaho has been demon strated this season in the Universi ty of Idaho experiment work with corn," said H. W. Hulbert, of the Farm Crops Department In dlscus -slng the results of the work at Mos "This work was started in cow. 1917 when a number of the earliest dent varieties were tested out both for production of grain and silage. In 1917, one variety stood out above all of the rest in production of grain. This variety, White Dent, came originally 'from Minnesota and was the only 'one of the numerous varieties trltd out that produced ears fully matured and of good qual ity. Then too its yield of silage compared favorably with any of the others, besides prodveing a silage of better quality than any of the later maturing varihties. This Beason some 27 acres of this variety were planted on the Univer sity farm for silage purposes alone. This area was made ready for the silo on September 10. It made an average yield of seven tons per acre and the silage produced was pro nounced by Dean E. J. ladings to be the best that had ever been en siled on the college farm. Besides the field planted for sil age a seed plot to furnish the seed for the 1919' planting was grown. This was a 'plot consisting of nearly a hundred rows, each row being planted from part of the seed from an individual ear. This seed plot was planted in hills three feet' each way on May 20. and later It was thinned down to three stalks per hill. The land on which it was grown was that of the typical Pa louse country. It was fall plowed double disced and harowed in the spring and the crop received one cultivation during the glowing sea son. different rows giving a yield of ov er 100 bushels per acre and one row yielding 123 bushels per acre. A number of the rows yielded over 90 bushels to the acre. Next season other ears will be se lected from this year's seed for the breeding plot and the remnants' of the seven high yielding ears will be planted in a plot for the production of seed for future use. In the se ' lection of the ears for th* seed plot, early maturing, high yielding ears were taken, Insofar as they could be determined. It is unquestionably true that the last two years have been especially favorable ones for the production of corn tn Northern Idaho, becauase of The average yield of the whole seed plot was 84 bushels of ear corn The yields on each indl per acre. vidual row were also secured,- seven miiiiimmiiiiiimmimiimmiiiMMiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiN a> 3 g I D A H O J * I FEDERAL RESEVE SYSTEM 5 I = lias proved Itself during our partic ipation tn the war. t ts difficult to say what banking conditions might have been without tt.

The 1918 steer herd consists of 2 two-year olds. 4 yearlings, a calves. Included among the sfeers 3 is the Shorthorn yearling Roan Lad that was grand champion steer in September at the Interstate Fair at Spokane. The University will also show a limited number of Shorthorns and Herefords in the breeding classes at the Pacific International. Included ov- among them will be the Shorthorn herd bull and the Hereford herd A bull, 90 se the of be se the of of For the first time in several years the University will not have a flock of show wethers. The entire show flock of 21 head were burned In a fire August 13th. The University has exhibited both steers and wethers annually at Port land, beginning in 1912. In that period grand champion steer has been won 5 out of 6 times by steers shown under the banner of the U. of I.

Contributed by Briggs. a U. or MENTAL DISORDER HERITAGE OF WAR War has left the cfvtilzed world a sinister heritage of nervous and mental disorder which affects not only the fighters but the civilian population as well. One of the great scientific prob lems of reconstruction is to undei ntand and cure these disturbances, which have In some degree affected the minds and nerves of millions, and the office of surgeon general is now engaged tn a study of the prob lem. The nervous and mental damage done by war ranges all the way from the specific shock of notse and suffering tn the soldier to the sub tle effects which an atmosphere filled with hatred, fear and carnage has upon the minds of whole nations. The "shell shock" of which one reads so much is a small phase of the matter. Some of the larger and more important psychic effects of : war are to be seen In Germany, where the German populace, famous I as the most peaceful and docile in the w'orld, has engaged tn a carnl ' val of loot and murder, as a result of the strain to which it has been subjected. The point Is that war generates great discontents, stirs emotions that have laid unused through the I years of civilized peace. Many of these discontents and emotions are healthy; they are the yeast of pro gress. But they are too strong for all but the strongest. Ill balanced minds give way under them; weak and diseased nervous systems col lapse. All sorts of criminal tenden ctes, most of which are caused by nervous and mental troubles, break j loose from the bonds of habit and i circumstance that have held them i a> tn check. j 3 j This problem has a special aignif Sjlcnnce for America.

OROFINO MERCANTILE CO. ANNOUNCEMENT. Pataha XXX Flour is again in and detectives sent here in colonial times. Furthermore, it is far behind the leading countries of Europe in the handling of its criminal Insane (which includes nearly all crimin als). Whereas other nations have learned to identify and isolate pys copathic cases, American cites and states have allowed them to go at large and multiply. After our civil war we had a period of crime and brigandage that lasted a quarter of a century—the heyday of the James and Younger brothers—and the psy chic effects that are still apparent in parts of the south. The problem faced by American physicians ana psychologies, then, is to prevent, as far as possible, the recurrence of such an ared of insanity and crime by intelligent handling of psychic cases in the army and out of it. And this study should form the bas- j Is of a more intelligent handling of all crime and insanity in America. It Is stated that more than 90 per cent of Canada's returned soidiers suffer from some form or other of mental disorder.

We publish the following from the University of Idaho Bi-Weekly News Letter to show how a live Farm Agent helps the farmers of a county: "I am happy to report a 100 per cent 'result in poisoning squirrels this year," writes P. H. Miller of Council, Secretary-Treasurer of tho Cuddy Mountain Cattle and Horse Growers' Association. Thlis letter comes to W. E. Crouch of the Bu reau of Biological Survey, who has been cooperating with the Exten sion Division through various Farm Bureaus In the Idaho rodent exter mination campaign of 1918. "The thorough team work accom plished while you were here on May last," continues Mr. Miller, "practi cally cleaned them up. but we kept putting out poisoned grain accord ing to your formula with 100 per cent, results. I lost not one spear of grain or anything else this sea son, while other years my loss wu as heavy as 25 per cent and closely approximated this several years. It was like a mortgage on our farms. It is hard to estimate the good ac complished by your Initiating the special poison methods last spring. More than 300 ounces of poison were used in the locality of Ceun cil. and It Is a safe estimate that each ounce of poison saved 25 bush els of grain ; in my case twice that much." "I trust your Bureau will be suc cessful in securing the much-needed legislation, both national and In the state, so that more ground can be covered in detail. I should also like it very much if this section could get aid in controlling grasshhoppers next year." Carl Perrin has requested the Re publicah to change the address from Fraser to Orofino. The Misses Elsie Dickinson and Phil lips of Fraser are assisting at the hos pital in Orofino. Mrs. Reta Rutherford died Tuesday at White's hospital in Lewiston. Mrs. Rutherford came from Missouri about a year ago and was well knowh in Oro fino, where she was employed by the Trading Company. She was 29 years of age, and leaves a son 11 years old; also two sisters residing in Orofino, Mesdames Arthur and Andrew Shaw. Her mother, a brother and sister live in Missouri. ... , ,. . . ,, , U you have old iron to sell be sure . .. . , . „ . and bring it in before December 15 as , , , . . . . . .. .
