LAST FRIDAY’S RAIN Assures us of a big Crop. The farmers and business men of Eastern Colorado are rejoicing over the drenching rainfall that covered this section of Colorado last Friday, assuring us of£a bountiful crop this season. With virtually 'all the crops newly planted the rain came at a most favorable time. We believe that this rain will almost make tht»* fall crops and with a few show ers later on we are assured of a big wheat crop. The acerage in the farming community around here has been nearly doubled and with plenty of moisture the har vest yield this year will be great ly in excess of previous years. A POSSIBILITY A man who is steadily employ ed finaly had a day off, and de cided to go fishing, taking his luncheon with him. When he reached the creek, he discovered that he had dropped the lunch packet somewhere on the road, and hastened back to look for it. Presently he met a husky negro, who was looking happy and pick ing his teeth. “Did you find anything on the road as you came along?" asked the gentleman. “No, sah,” answered the ne gro. “I did not find nothing. Couldn’t a dog have found it and eat it up?" FLAX SEEDING In a l-ec-ent “News Notes,” direc tions for the preparation of the seed bed for llax were given. Next to the seed bed seeding is the most important consideration. After a clean well prepared seed bed is prepared, llax should be seeded at the rate of from 18 to 25 pounds of seed per acre. This should be seeded with a press drill, preferably a disc press drill, early in May. Flax is a crop which will stand considerable cold weather. It will not stand heavy freezes but light frosts will not injure it. Before the seed is planted it should be thoroughly fanned to remo ro light seed caused by dlseaso or otherwise. The thoroughly cleaned seed should then be treated with formaldehyde to minimize as far as possible the danger from llax wilt.
