' Connected with this aswrnon Is the greatest wheat story that has ever been told, far greater than the wild est dreams of the wheat king, I9 the seourltv of his vast domain and the demand for his golden harvest. The United .States paid eighty mil Hons of money for Alaska, and yet the gold payment Alaska has return ed sinks Into Insignificance when compared with Farmer Adams' Alas ka wheat, which In the secret and far away fields of Idaho he has gradu ally brought to perfection until ne has given to the world a wheat that will crow under average conditions two huhdred bushels to the acre. This Is a large assertion, and hard- area to a thousand acres, by the dis covery of one old farmer, away out In Idaho. As a last test, Mr, Adams has sent single heads of wheat to other parts of the country, where he had. men he could trust to plant and ascertain the result. Reports are Just coming to him, and he finds that In other states the Alaska wheat does better than on las home soil. In Alabama a head planted December 31 was up January SO, waist high April 1, with leaves Ti of art Inch broad, and July 7 was harvested. It showed to be hard wheat of a fine quality, and the one head yielded the same as the first head planted In Idaho. One Oregon experimental station offered the originator $5 for a pound of his wheat, a rate of over 1300 a bushel. The old gentleman did not prize the money. Ho only wanted to be sure that some attache was not trying to get away with some of his seed. He required a contract that the state would not dispose of any wheat used In the test, and upon securing that sent the seed asked for along. Now the United States experiment ers are becoming Interested, and next year's report will have much to say about Abraham Adams and his wheat frri lit iVH n lb -v. 4 1 tfS3z5zMeyii 5 For Sale by i'1 - .1 Looks like boor!

"On the lower ranges the cat tle are doing nicely and the range is said to be better than for years, says the Walla Walla Statesman. The lower sheep range is also good, as good as .could be expected. But the upper ringe, where the snow is Just leaving, Is dry and will furnish but poor picking. However, taking the forest over, there will be plenty of grass, although there will probably be a good many disputes over the range, as those who have the lower range where grass Is good naturally do not want to exchange or give up part of it. But this will be neces sity. In fact, my recent trip was for the purpose of settling several dis putes of the kind.

City Water All Right. "Did you notice conditions above the intake of the city waterworks on Mill creek?" was asked Mr. Schmltz. "Why, yes; I paid particular atten tion to that after having heard the matter discussed lately. As I found things, and I observed pretty close ly, everything Is In good condition There are no dead cattle in the creek that I could see, and the campers are quite careful in the way they use the stream. I think there is no cause at all for alarm over the conditions there. I do think, however, that the city should keep a man patrollng the creek and see that conditions are good at all times. Just at present there seems to be nothing needed beyond the notices posted, as these are being observed closely by campers and oth ers who visit the creek above the in take.

The yield Is only a part of the great discovery, for this Alaska wheat is both a winter and spring wheat, and when planted as either Is a hard wheat that will grade as No. 1. im agine a hard winter wheat for the great soft wheat belts of the country, which with this new wheat can com pete with the harl wheat lands of the great Northwest. A Brief History. A brief history of this almost mi raculous seed Is given in a few words by its modest originator, a plain man who farms In a plain way, but wno all his life until old age nas uvea with and for his wheat, and has fln- lly given the world the greatest gift any one man has ever been responsi ble for. Mr. Adams' first perfect head of wheat came to realization In 1904, from an experimental plant of the spring of that year. This one head ne planted that fall as winter wheat, ana the next year he secured seven pounds of seed from this planting. From the seven pounds, planted In the spring of 1906, he harvested 1,545 pounds, an Increase of 122 times, or a basic principle of 222 bushels to the acre. Here comes another remarkable story of this wonderful wheat. The 1.545 pounds were sowed In the fall, and that summer there were terrific hall storms which put the club ana bluestem wheat so much to the bad that many fields were never har vested, yet from the Alaska wheat plots there was gathered a crop which threshed out 53,000 pounds. This when all other wheat was ren dered practically worthless. At about this time the Idaho sta tion became Intereated in the wheat ami nsked to make a test. Mr. Ad ams carried a sample to the station at Moscow, and after a most thor ough test received the following re ply. "Regarding the analysis made upon the sample of Alaskan wheat which you brought to this labaratory, I have this to say: The Kernels irom me fall sown wheat were plump and nimtl nd doubtless will grade as No 1. Judging from the chemical and nhyslclcal condition of this sample I will say it will probably lane ran with the best grade of bluestem for flour making purposes. The sample - . ...Uaa irrnu-n from soring grown wncni showed by chemical analysis a some what higher protein contejit ( this be- Inir an Indication of its proDaDie strength for bread making purposes) I am Inclined to think that tne wneai you have here is equal if not superior to-our bluestem for nour matting pm- t nhouid like to make a mill a ., test whenever you can sena um dent quantity for that purpose. Very truly, J. S. JONES. State Chemist. Looks Like Corn. In appearance the standing wheat is strong and vigorous, with a corn like gro.wth. Its head in the bearing part Is about four Inches long to over that and an Inch t an men ana half broad at its broadest part. The kernel Is about four times the size of hard wheat, and a clear light cream color without a dark spot, a clean as hulled peanuts In. color. It Is almost absolutely frost pro tected and It would be a hard frost that would touch It. Its sturdiness makes It Impervious to ordinary storm or light hall. It Is originally grown on high unlrrlgated land and will stand drought as no known wheat will. Add all those qualities to Its enormous yielding properties and it must be admitted that the world has been turned topsy turvy so far as wheat raising Is concerned. California, where so much soft wheat is grown, Is beginning to take un the Alaska wheat, for they see the opportunity of a hard wheat yield Farmers in Missouri and the east and in the south, where soft wheat Is all that can be raised with success, are beginning to think of what Is In store for them when some neighbor convinces them by making a first trial, that the wonderful Alaskan wheat story Is not as much a fabrlca tion as the first story of seedless" oranges was thought to be.' The wheat world is trembling on the verge of a new era, one in which the man with a hundred acres sua denly finds his farm increased in The Remedy That Does.
