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. Residents of Nebraska whose names are not on the Station mailing list may obtain tills bulletin free of cost by applying to 13. A.

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 the premium. 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 homo. SEED TIME IS NEAR. Alt Corn for Planting Should De Properly - , erly Tested. 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- < dust. dust.Take 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 cellor has boon on several speaking tours and the strain of speaking every day has proved too great a strain on his endurance. Ills physi cian has advised him to cancel all speaking engagements. 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. State Oil Inspector Mullen turned into the state treasury $2,001.02 , the receipts of his office for the mouth of , January above the expenditures. Col lections that month topped that of any previous month of this adminis tration. Jenks for Commencement Orator. Prof. Jeremiah W. JenKs of Cornell university will bo the commencement orator at Uio University of Nebraska next spring.
