In order to provido sources of seed
of improved strains of grain, tho State
College of Agriculturo has inspected
fields in forty countesi Tho strains
included in tho inspection arc Knnred
wheat, Nebraska No. G and No. GO
wheats, Nebraska 21 and Burt oats,
Minnesota No. 84 barley and Rosen
rye. .Only growers who sowdi from
previously certified seed or from seed
the source of which could be definite
ly traced, and who agreed to sell their
surplus seed at a fair price, reccivod
the inspection service. Threshermen
are being asked to certify to the a
mount of grain threshed, also that it
was not mixed with other grain. The

Impropor feeding of young chick
ens is injuring the reputation of Ne
braska as a poultry state, according
to poultry specialists of the State
College of Agriculture. Young chick
ens marketed from farms are so un
finished that hotels must buy from
packors, who finish out tho chickens
after buying them from farmora.
These unfinished young chickens are
known'ao tho airplane type all wings
and machinery. Buyers say the un
willingness of many people to feeiJ
grain and finish out tho young chick
ens holds down the price. The' theory
that young chickens obtain enoug'x
grain foraging about ithe placa Is
wrong, specialists declare. As a rule
they do not get enough to keep them
growing and properly finish them for
tho market As a result they are
marketed when little more than skin
tive committee, tho Farm Bureau
coal marketing plan was tentatively
agreed upon. It was plainly stated
that tho plan is not to bo a commer
cial enterprise, but morely a scrvico
agency, serving not only tho Farm
Bureau mombera but nil individuals.
Orders will bo place)! by individuals
through tholr county farm bureau.
The County Farm Bureau will pool
tho orders through the purchasing
agent of tho office or allied organi
zation. Tho orders for each stato
will bo turned over to the purchasing
agent, who will thou seek tho grado of
coal desired at tho most favorable
rate as regards location, the coal to
bo Mellvered through tho local co
operative elovator, the local dealer, or
County Farm Bureau. The farmer is
to pay for his coal upon arrival at hll
local distributing point,
A good many farmers who hog
down or run sheep in corn during the
fall months, sow rapo in the corn.
The State College, of Agriculturo has
found rape a valuable supplemental
feed whore stock is turned Into the
corn fields. While some farmers sow
rapo at the time of the last cultiva
tion, unless the season is favorable
It Is probably better not to sow it until
tho latter part of July. It may bo
sowcl up to the middle of August, the
season anl maturity of the corn hav
ing much to do with tho time. The
corn should bo mature enough to suf
for no setback from tho presence ul
tho rapo. If the season is favorable
an abundance of flno fcl will be pro
duced In a few weeks. Rape in com

start and provides considerable feed

plenty of rain iurinfe August and

Tho enrollment in boys and girls'
clubs over tho stato now numbers
more than 4000. Eleven kinds of
clubs have been formed for tho pur

er to direct tho work. Lessons provid
ed by tho College of Agriculturo are
studied and various methods discus
sed at the club meetings. The juniors
learn in main by doing tho actual
work, however. At tho end of tho
season each club member writes a
story of how ho or sho did their work.
Each club member also keeps an ac
curate financial record and reports on
tho profit or loss of tho project Tbo
purpose of tho boys' and girls' cluo

Succcssful dairy farmers say it pays
to provido plenty of good, clean, cool
.water for milk cowb. Eighty-seven
per" cent of milk Is water, as is near
ly threo-fourth of a cow's body. The
Stato ollego of Agriculturo says that
largo amounts of water are necessary
for the production of tho milk itself
and the assimilation of tho largo
quantities of feed required to make
tho mlllc Experiments show that Uio
amount of water required is in direct
proportion to tho amount of milk pro
duced. In the summer a cow will ro
qulro an amount of water equal to
about three times tho amount of milk
produced. In ono caso a cow giving
27 pounds of milk drank 77 pounds of
water (dally. Tho same cow drank
but 15 pounds daily when giving no
milk. A cow giving 100 pounds of
milk daily drank more than 250
pounds of water, Tho amount of
water required deponds, of course, on
tho amount of milk tho cow is pro
ducing, tho kind of feed sho Is re
ceiving, an)i the weather. However,
in all cases It is considered good
practice to provido an abundance of
good water, fresh and clean, cool In
summer and warm In winter.
