WHEAT GROWN ON
Yield of Slightly Over 1 00 Bushels

DIGKLOW VARIETY WAS USED
Experiments at Aberdeen Station
Show That Federation, an Austra
lian Strain, Is Better Suited
(Prepared by the United States Department
A yield of 210 bushels and 80 pounda
of wheat from 2.17 acres of land In
Jerome county, Idaho, In 1021, proba
bly a record yield for spring wheat
In the United States, Is reported In
nllldavlts received by the bureau of
markets and crop estimates of tho
United States Department of Agricul
ture from H. S. Green, manager of
the Ill-Abo farms, Jerome county,
Idnho. This yield of slightly over 100
bushelH of whent to tho acre was ob
tained from the DIcklow variety. This
variety has been found to bo well
suited for growing under Irrigation In
southern Idnho, nnd the ncreage of It
In that section hns Increased rapidly
during recent years. This Is due
largely to the efforts of the former
superintendent of tho Aberdeen, Idaho,
sub-station, L. O. Alcher, who hns had
charge of the co-operative cereal ex
periments conducted by the Idaho
station and the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. For the past
five yenrs Mr. Alcher has been dis
tributing and recommending the Dick
low variety for growing under Irriga
tion In southern Idaho.

The largest yield of wheat pet- acre
ever recorded by tho bureau of crop

bushels. The yield wns produced In

The 100-bushcl yield of the Dicklow
variety here reported Is probably a
record yield for spring wheat In the
United States. In experiments don
ducted by tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, where varieties
are grown In flftlcth-ncre pints, yields
at the rate of more than 80 bushels
per acre have sometimes been ob
tnlned. A yield of 83.8 bushels per
acre was obtained In 1021 from a pint
of Federation wheat ut the Aberdeen,
Tdaho, sub-station. The Federation Is
an Important Australian variety of
wheat introduced into the United
States by the Department of Agricul
ture In 1015.

deen station during the past three
years Indicate that the Federation will
be even better suited for growing

SAVING PINE TREES
FROM BLISTER RUST
Wild Currant and Gooseberry
Bushes Must Be Removod.
Disease Is Rnpldly Increasing In
Northeastern States and Prompt
Action Is Needed to Save
(Prepared by the United State Department
A delay of one yenr In destroying
the wild currants und gooseberries as
n protection ngalnst the blister rust
will result In the loss of at least 11
per cent of the trees In n young white-
pine plantation nt North Hudson,
This planting of white pine wns
made for the purpose of producing
another timber crop on an urea pre
viously denuded by fire. Threo-ycar-old
trees were set out In the spring of
1010, hut tho wild currant and goose
berry bushes on the tract wcro not de
stroyed until 1020, a year after tho
planting. The removnl of tho currant
and gooseberry bushes Is necessnry to
Top of a 30-Foot White Pine Broken
Off as Result of Girdling by the
save pine trees from the blister rust,
because they are the only means by
which this disease can- spread.
The pines In tho plantation were
examined in the fnll of 1021 by agents
of tho United States Department of
Agriculture. As n result of the trees
being exposed for a single year to tho
blister rust on the currant nnd goose
berry bushes, It was found that 80
trees showed Infection originating In
1010, 107 were missing nnd 483 showed
no sign of Infection. Thus 15.10 per
cent of the living trees or 11.20 per
cent of all the trees set out on tho
plat were Infected by the blister rust
In a single yenr, nnd will succumb
sooner or Inter. If tho bushes hnd
been removed before the pines were
sot out, this loss would hnvo been pre
vented. The disease Is rapidly Increasing on
white pines In the northenstern states,
and prompt action by pine owners In
destroying currant and gooseberry
bushes Is necessary to prevent serious
damnge and loss to tho pine crop.
Since wild gooseberry and currant
bushes are among the first plants to
sprout and lenf out, they can be dis
tinguished very rendlly In the enrly
spring. This season Is, therefore,-
most favorable for tho pine wood-lot
owner to find nnd pull them out.
These bushes should be destroyed In
the pine stand and around It for n dls
tunce of at least 000 feet. If the
search for tho bushes Is conducted
systematically, and If care Is taken to
got all the main roots, the pines will
be protected from tho blister rust for
ut least five years.
BEST DEVELOPMENT OF CALF
Feeding Should Begin Before Birth
and Insufficient Amount Results
In Puny Youngster.
Poorly nourished cows give birth to
weak, puny calves which are hard to
raise. The feeding of tho calf, there
fore, begins before It Is born. Tho
food elements for the development of
the calf aie taken Into the stomach
of the cow, digested, asslmllnted, and
transmitted to the calf through tho
umbilical cord, the connection between
tho mother and the calf. It is evident
that If the cow does not receive food
enough to keep 1 .T-jelf In thrifty con
dltlon and at the same time develop
hot calf, both she nnd the calf must
GETTING COWS ON PASTURE
In Many Cases Grass Is Not In Prope
Condition to Be Grazed and
The temptation to get the cows on
grass ns early as posslhlo In the spring
Is not an easy one to resist and the
consequence Is that many pastures are
required to carry cattle before they
are In proper condition to ho grazed
Although milk cows will usually show
gains In milk production on grass Im
mediately after It becomes green
theso gains are only temporary and
unless the feeding of tho regular bum
rations Is continued, tho milk flow
soon falls off and the animals lose In
