RESULTS OF TESTS AND THE
RATES OF SOWING.
BY THE 'EXPERIMENT STATION
What Is Shown by an Invcctlfjtlon
of Six Years. Other Matters at
the State Capital.
The Nebraska Kxporiinunt Stittlon
/ins / Junt Issued HiilluHti No. 118 , entitled -
titled "Outs. " It ulBciiHSos results of
variety tests , different rates of sowlni ;
and the cultivation of o.its.
During the pint ! x years some
twenty varieties have been lusted , and
about twelve of UIOHO varieties have
boon tested for a period of llvo years.
The varieties can be summarized Into
early types and late typos. The early
varieties , which have ripened on an
average July llth , 1mvo averaged 53. ! )
bushels per aero , while 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 busings per acre as
an average for flyo years. In favor of
the early varieties of oats. Sixty Day ,
Kherson and Texas lied , among the
early varieties , are the ones most
hlgholy recommended. Among the
late varieties , Lincoln Oats have
given best results.
Various rates of seeding Kherson
oats have been tested since 1903. Uc-
sults have shown in general that
about eight pecks per aero gives best
results when the Kherson oats are
drilled and about ten pecks per acre
when they arc sown broadcast. How
ever , the rate of seeding depends
somewhat upon the variety of oats
used. There Is a table showing the
relative size of gra.n 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 pocks of lar
ger-grained varieties. Hence , the rate
of seeding depends a great deal upon
the size of the grain. Counts have
boon made upon the different rates of
seeding for two years to determine
the number of plants and number of
suckers or tillers produced per acre.
Where the planting is-thin , the plants
tiller freely , and almost as many
heads per aero are produced whore
four pocks 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 whpro the oats have been
sown with the regular drill and broad
cast and afterwards harrowed with
an ordinary smoothing harrow or
weodor. 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 one to three times soon
after the oats came up , an average
Increase In yield of 4.8 bushels for a
period of seven years has resulted.
However , whore the oats were 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 be drilled and harrowed.

Buffalo County Must Pay.
Buffalo county must pay the $370
premium on the bond of County Treas
urer Gilbert E. Haase. Tito supreme
court holds that after the county
board approved a bond that Its dis
cretion as to paying the premium
terminates 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 not
mandatory and that the board could
refuse to pay all or part or none of
A further Indication that the unl
vorsity authorities are tightening up
the strings on scholarship was indi
cated by a mooting of the delinquency
committee. Three students In the
university were dismissed on account
of failure In their studies , whicl
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 iu the
welfare of the students.
Adjutant General Hartigan desires
very much that both regiments of the
Nebraska National Guard go to Fort
Wloy for the encampment , which has
boon changed from September to Au
gust 15. Ho has written the war de
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 officers
number loss than forty-three will bo
permitted to go , so companies with a
less number will bo forced to recruit
up to past that number or be loft at
SEED TIME IS NEAR.
Alt Corn for Planting Should De Properly - ,
The best way to toot seed corn IB In ,
a germination box. This Is a simple
affair and can bo made by anyone in ]
an hour's time.
Tano a box six inches deep antL
about two by three feet in size. Fill )
tlic box about half full of moist dirt , .
Hand or sawdust. Press It well dowuj
BO It will have a smooth , oven sur
face. Now take a white cloth about ,
the size of the box , rule it off checkerboard - ;
board fashion , making squares one |
and a half inches each way. Mum-
jcr the checks 1 , 2 , 3 , and BO on.
Place this over the sand , dirt or saw- <
Take the ears to be tested and
either lay them out on the iloor and
mark a number In front of each or
attach a numbered tag. Now lake off
about six kernels from each car ( 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 ears
of corn. Bo careful not to get them
nixed. Keep the cars numbered to
correspond EXACTLY with the num-
jera 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
o 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
: ho numbers on the squares where' '
: he kernels did not grow or where ,
ihcy showed only weak roots.
The cars numbered corresponding' '
to those on the cloth which showed ,
strong signs of life arc the ones to <
preserve for seed. Every kernel from
: heso ears should produce a stalk , ev
ery stalk an ear.
Suppose one dead car Is planted.
The planter falls to got one thousand ;
stalks of corn almost twelve bushels
of corn lost.
A number of seed corn testers are
manufactured for sale. They are all ,
; oed any Implement dealer or seed
liouso will know where to get them.
Word was received at Gothenburg
ofthe death of O. Bergstrom In Ten
nessee. Mr. Bergstrcm was the
[ ounder of Gothenburg and took an
active interest in Its growth ,
talned too much moisture. It has
been my opinion that corn which re
mained in the field would be 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. "
Chancellor Cancels Dates.
A severe attack of throat trouble
hius forced Chancellor Samuel Avery
of the State university to cancel a ;
large number of engagements for ad
dresses over the state. He was ]
booked to deliver fifteen speeches durIng - .
Ing the next two weeks , but will not
be able to deliver any of these. During - '
ing the last three months the chan

Boy "Flunkers" Predominate.
A list of failures In the various dq-
partmonts of the state university for
the last semester shows that of the
total number of "Hunkers" 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
clascs. 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 llrst
semester of the present school year.
