"Seed sole dion and seed testing," the subject of a very interesting dress Tuesday morning hv R. R. »glatt, state seed commissioner. He said in part: "Seed selection is as important as is, for instanee. the selection of a good dairy cow. draft horse, hog, etc. We not only look for the individual, hut we consider the breed characteristics. Rut we do not as a rule follow out this plan in the selection of seed. The same principles of life are the same in the organisms of a dairy cow or horse, as in <■< rn. or wheat, or oats, etc." Profe.-sor C'oglan illustrated how line of of It to «Staff Correspondence) Emmett, Jan. 8.—The Movable Ag- . ficultnrai schools, under the direction ■ ~f the agricultural extension depart-j a it j j I j I ! ; • j I j I I I | t l ie ' wept the ROOMS CROWDED UNITED DOCTORS.

Hours D a. m. to 6 p. in.—Adv. dairy stock is improved and how the same thing can and should be done in improving our grains. Corn seed, for instance, should be selected from ears of corn that are fully kerneled, with small cob, etc. The best ears of corn should be selected for the seed. We should devote a small portion of the farm for the purpose of producing ex tra quality of grain, and from the yield of tills small tract should be selected the best grain for the next year's seed. It is wonderful what results will fol low such a plan. "We should not at tempt to cross-breed our grain. Farm ers cannot afford to attempt to cross breed their grain. Two strong, healthy ears of corn to the stalk is preferable to growing three small ears to the stalk." Mr. Coglan devoted his talk princi pally 1o corn, but the same principles, in corn, are applicable to the other ""^"e farmers can improve their own ««om, or potatoes, etc. It Isn't neces sary for our farmers to go off their own farms for their seed, because by using common sense the farmer can improve his own seed. Professor Coglan offered to assist the fanners of this district in the se lection of their ears of corn for the next year's seed. Mr. Coglan says it is a mistake for any farm district to grow too many varieties of corn. He said it is better to stick to one variety of corn, alter finding out through our ex perimental stations what the best va riety of corn 'V for any particular tion. "It is advisable kernels of corn for seed from the tip or butt nf the car. but it is better to use the kernetfc from the body of the ear for seed." Mr. Coglan agreed to come to Km mett and help the farmers interested to select the ears of corn for the im provement of their corn crop. The best ears for seed are those whose kernels run in straight rows, and whose kernels are of equal size from the butt to the tip. The length and depth of the grain is very important. Poultry on the Farm. "Poultry on the Kami" was the sub ject of a highly instructive address by Professor J. F. Nicholson of the Uni versity of Idaho. He talked on this subject on Monday and finished his address Tuesday morning. He said in part : "When you produce an article and take it to market, put it up in nice and clean form or package. When you take eggs to market nr to your customer, do not mix the brown and the white eggs. If you sell dressed poultry, dress them nice. It pays to do these things. It is in saving the little leaks on a farm as well as in the store, where the profits are made." Professor Nicholson urged farmers who raise poultry to keep a record of their poultry. He keeps for himself a book account of the number of chick lens he has, the average per cent of yield of his chickens, his expense ac count, expense of feeding, the income from sale of eggs, chickens, breeding stock, « te. He keeps and advises the 'keeping of such account for each month of the year, and then totals these items at the end of each year. In this way the farmer or poultry raiser «'it the end of each year knows whether or not he has made a profit. and how mull. "There isn't one man in a hundred who understands the intricacies of fine poultry breeding for producing the fine j show birds." Professor Nicholson ad vised the ordinary poultry raiser nut to attempt to buy high priced pure bred poultry, unless such buyer knows precisely what the blood lines of such bird are, and unless he has the ability to further develop such breed. The I prize winning pure bred chicken as a rule is not an egg producing bird. I Professor Nicholson then proceeded, with the aid of a pair of White Orph I ington chickens-*, to explain to theaud | ience just how a bird is judged by the judge at a poultry show. The judge ' first locks for the shape Then he looks to the color o r the bird's feathers and skin. Then he looks to the comb, the ic eye, waddles, bill, ear face, the neck, the wings, * bin k. the breast, body and fluff. ' tail, legs, toes and shanks, the ight all those points were well ex plained according to the standard of to~uso Hie I ° I textur | lobes, j perfect ion The chicken hatched by the middle of I March or first of April makes the fall laying hen. "Maintaining the Soil's Fertility" : was tie* subject handled in an instruc live b > '*• >'• Peterson of the Diversity Monday morning. Dr. , state Peterson conducted a round table dis cussion, in which he led. The idea he sought to impress was that we must| l'ann cur soil today for tomorrow's crop, so that we must not Impoverish! our sod but maintain its fertility. | "Duty of Water" was the next sub jet. which was ably handled by Don H. Hark of the United States office of j irrigation investigations. Mr. Bark j talked on irrigation investigation work j and gave an interesting review of the has made, must study haraeter of the soil, and make thus I brought out dress by Professor \V. in-'state university. lie the : Hi-! vation tafce the place of irrigation to a. certain extent. In this manner we may prevent the washing out of soil the soluble plant food that is in . the soil. Over-irrigation washes out this soluble plant food The greater the porosity of the soil, the more water is necessary to produce « grain crop. Cultivation of surface soil checks surface evaporation and makes water for irrigation go farther. Mr. Bark called attention that in the limited time irrigation has been prac- ! ticed in Idaho, 100,000 acres of trri gated lands in this state are needing : drainage right now. This fact eon Ntltutes a great criticism upon our present day irrigation practices. Mr. j i explained the irrigation terms,] such as an inch of water, etc. Boy» and Girls on the Farm.
