RESULTS OF TESTS AND THE
RATES OF SOWING.
BY THE 'EXPERIMENT STATION
What Is Shown by an InvcBtlfitlon
of Six Years. Other Matters at
the State Capital.
The Nebraska Kxperiinunt Station
/inn / just Issued Hullotln No. US , entitled -
titled "Oats. " It tilBcimus results of
variety tests , dlfCoront rates of ROW In i ;
and the cultivation of oats.
During the im ° t six yearn porno
twenty varieties have been tested , and
about twelve of UIOHU varieties have
boon tested for a period of llvo years.
The varletlea can be summarized Into
early types and late types. The early
varieties , which have ripened on an
average July llth , huvo averaged 53. ! )
bushels per acre , whllo the late va
rieties have ripened on an average
July 20th , and have given an average
yield of about 40.1 bushels , a differ
ence of about 11 bushels per acre as
an average for Ilyo years , in favor of
the early varieties of oats. Sixty Day ,
Kherson and Texas Red , among the
early varieties , arc the ones most
hlgholy recommended. Among the
late varieties , Lincoln Oats hnvo
given best results.
Various rates of Heeding Kherson
oats have been tested since 1903. lie-
suits have shown in general that
about eight pecks per acre gives best
results when the Kherson oats are
drilled and about ten pecks per acre
when they are sown broadcast. How
ever , the rate of seeding rtqpends
somewhat upon the variety of oats
used. There is a table showing the
relative size of gra.u in different
varieties of oats , which demonstrates
that with a small-grained variety of
oats , like Kherson , eight pecks will
furnish about as many plants per acre
as fourteen or .nineteen pecks of lar
ger-grained varieties. Hence , the rate
of Boedlng depends a great deal upon
the size of the grain. Counts have
been made upon the different rates of
seeding for two yeara to determine
the number of plants and number of
suckers or tillers produced per acre.
Where the planting IB-thin the plants
tiller freely , and almost as many
heads per acre are produced where
four pecks Is used as where eight
pecks Is used , duo to the stoollng of
the oats under thin planting.
Cultivation of oats has been prac
ticed since 1898 , experiments being
conducted with plants sown in wide
rows , 12 to 24 Inches apart , also ex
periments where the oats have been
sown with the regular drill and broad
cast and afterwards harrowed Avith
an ordinary smoothing harrow or
weeder. It has not been found advis
able to plant oats in drills wide apart
except In a very dry season , when
drilling twelve inches apart gave fair
results. Where oats , have been sown
the ordinary way with a drill and har
rowed from ono to three times aoon
after the oats came up , an average
increase In yield of 4.8 bushels for a
period of seven years has resulted.
However , where the oata wore sown
broadcast , harrowing has given a
slight decrease In yield , duo to the
fact that many plants were destroyed
in harrowing. It Is recommended
that oats bo drilled and harrowed.

Buffalo County Must Pay.
Buffalo county must pay the $370
premium on the. bond of County Treas
urer Gilbert E. Haase. The supreme
court holds that after the county
board approved a bond that Its dis
cretion ns to paying the premium
lonnlnatcs and that It Is up to the
board to pay. In this case the bond
was written and was afterwards ap
proved by the county board. The
board thought that the statute relat
ing to the payment of bonds was nol
mandatory and that the board couli ;
refuse to pay all or part or none of
A further Indication that the unl
vorslty authorities are tightening up
the strings on scholarship was Indl
cated by a meeting of the delinquency
committee. Three students In the
university were dismissed on account
of failure in their studies , whlcl
makes a total of thirty-one since last
September. There Is no doubt but
that the requirements are much more
rigid than they have been , and the
university authorities on the whole
are taking more direct Interest In the
welfare of the students.
Adjutant General Hartlgan desires
pory much that both regiments of the
Nebraska National Guard go to Fort
Jllloy for the encampment , which has
boon changed from September to Au
gust 1C. Ho has written the war department
partment to see Just how many men
ho will bo permitted to bring along ,
but as yet has received no reply. No
company whoso men and otllcors
number loss than forty-threo will bo
permitted to go , so companies with a
loss number will bo forced to recruit
up to past that number or be loft at
SEEDTIME IS NEAR.
All Corn for Planting Should De Properly - ,
erly Tested ,
The best way to tent seed corn IB In ,
a germination box. This Ifl a simple
affair and can bo made-by nuyono In ;
an hour's time.
T.IKU a box six inches deep nncL
about two by three feet in size. Fill )
tin ; box about half full of moist dirt , ,
sand or sawdust. Press it well downj
so It will have a smooth , oven sur
face. Now Uiko a white cloth about ,
the size of the box , rule it off checkerboard - !
board fashion , making squares one ,
and a half Inches each way. Num-
) or the checks 1 , 2 , 3 , and BO on. '
Place this over the sand , dirt or saw- *
Take the ears to be tested and
cither lay them out on the floor and
nark a number In front of each or
attach a numbered tag. Now take oft
about six kernels from each ear ( not
all from the same place , but at sev
eral points on all sides. ) Put these
cornels on the squares corresponding
n number to those placed on the cars
of corn. Bo careful not to get them
nixed. Keep the cars numbered to
correspond EXACTLY with the num-
) crs on the squares of cloth ,
After the kernels have been placed
carefully on the cloth which covers
.ho moist sand , dirt or sawdust , cover
hem with another cloth , considerably
arger than the box ; cover this cloth
with about two inches of the same
moist sand and keep the box In a.
warm place. It must not get cold.
The kernels will germinate In four
to six days.
Remove the cover carefully to avoid
misplacing the kernels. Examine
them carefully. Some will have long
sprouts , but almost no roots ; others
will not have grown at all , but the
cornels from ears which will produce
corn if planted will have both sprouts
and good root systems.
Compare the numbers on the
squares with those on the ears. Put ,
back into the feeding corn bin the
ears which correspond In number to
. \io \ numbers on the squares where1
the kernels did not grow or where ,
they showed only weak roots.
The cars numbered corresponding' '
to those on the cloth which showed ,
strong signs of life are the ones to
preserve for seed. Every kernel from
Lheso ears should produce a stalk , ev
ery stalk an ear.
Suppose ono dead car Is planted.
The planter falls to get one thousand ;
stalks of corn almost twelve bushels
of corn lost.
A number of seed corn testers are
manufactured for sale. They are all ,
good any implement dealer or seed
liouso will know where to get them.
AVord was received at Gothenburg
ofthe death of O. Bergstrorn in Ten
nessee. Mr. Bergstrcm was the
founder of Gothenburg and took an
active interest in its growth ,
talned too much moisture. It has
been my opinion that corn1 which re
mained in the field would bo In the
best condition , but I may be mistaken
In this and wo are going to test every
ear of corn before we plant it. "

Boy "Flunkers" Predominate.
A list of failures in the various dq-
partments of the state university for
the last semester shows that of the
total number of "flunkers" 80 per cent
are boys and only 20 per cent girls.
Five boys failed to pass in ono or
more studies during the semester for
every co-ed that could make a per
cent of CO the passing grade In her
clases. In other years the failures
among the boys have always outnum
bered those of the co-eds , but the vari
ance has never been so startling as
that revealed by figures for the first
semester of the present school year.
