G. C. Thorpe, of Hancock, did not
get good returns from durum wheat
getting only 12 bushels to the acre
wnile his blue stem went 24. He
says he will not sow durum again.
J. Decamp, of Stevens had 80 acres
of durum wheat and 120 acres of blue
stem. His arum yielded about 20
bushels to the acre and his blue stem
14. He is somewhat disappointed
with durum, but will try it again
He informs us that his neighbor
Herbert Noithcott, raised 22 bushels
of durum to the acre.
Will Richards, on his farm north
west of town, raised 528 bushels cf
durum wheat on 48 acres. This is
little less than 12 bushels to the acre
but many spots were drowned out
He is undecided whether or not to
try it again.
Hugh Hughes, of the town
Morris did not raise any macaroni
wheat, but raised a good crop of blue
stem. In discussing the question
which wheat to raise, he said
Geo. S Brown, who owns three
•quarters in Framnas, brought us in
some fine samples of corn yesterday
that was raised from the same seed
as the corn on his farm nesr Spencer
Iowa. Mi. Brown used the same
seed just to see what the results
would'be, and how the corn raised
here and that raised in .Iowa wouk
compare. The test is entirely sat
isfactory to Stevens county, for Mr
Brown says there is no noticeable
difference between the two.

is what we need, and seed brought
from the south is always better than
seed brought from the north.

Creditable Exhibit i*lade of Corn And
The Stevens county fair this year
was considerable improvement over
what it has been in the past and in
dicates what could be done toward
making the fair a really important
event for the people of the county
In the Good building were the ex
hibits of vegetables, grains, etc., as
well as the ladies' work and educa
tional exhibits. In the rear rjom
was an excellent showing of poultry
While all the exhibits were ex
cellent, yet those that
attracted the most attention were
the fine exhibits of corn and Jfruit in
the building and the exhibit or
stock in the temporary stalls across
the street.
The principal stock exhibits were
the shorthorn exhibit from| the poor
farm, and the shorthorn exhibit
from the Crocus Valley'stoskj farm,
owned by E. J. Jones All were
interested in these two shorthorn
herds of registered stock, and Mr
Smith and ^r. Jones"are^to be con
gratulated and thanked for ""the caie
they took in displaying these cattle
Even so small a fair as «the Stev
ens county fair is, ^entails |consider
able work on the part |of those hav
ing it is charge, especially when au
attempt is being made toj make the
fair bigger and better. Much
credit is due to the jeesent officers
Maguire, ST Wheaton and
CRC Johnson for the effort they
have expended in Jmaking this year s
fair the- succoss it was.
First Clover liuller Bought.
L. D. Perkins purchased from
Stone & Munro this week a clover
huller, and Mr. Stone informs us that
this is the first one to be bought in
the county. Heretofore farmers have
had no way of raisingjtheir own seed
as they had no facilities for threshing
it, and accordingly clover seed has
com maud ed fancy prices.
The introduction of this clover hul
ler, by the way, is one of those "signs
of the times" th».t shows bow the
methods of farming here are gradual®
ly changing, and crops are becoming
more diversified.
The First Killing Frosts.
As frost continues to hold off, the

fore the date given, but these dates
are those of the first frost that is
known as "the killing frost."
