The Nebraska Experiment Station
has just issued Bulletin No. 113, en
titled "Oats." It aiscusscs results of
variety tests, different rates of sowing
and the cultivation of oats.
During the past six years some
twenty varieties have been tested, and
about twelve of these varieties have
been tested for a period of five years.
The varieties can be summarized into
early types and late types. The early
varieties, which have ripened on an
average July 11th, have averaged 53.9
bushels per acre, while the late va
rieties have . ripened on an average J
July 20th, and have given an average
yield of about 40.1 bushels, a differ
ence of about 14 bushels per acre as
an average for five years, in favor of
the early varieties of oats. Sixty Day,
Kherson and Texas Red, among the
early varieties, are the ones most
highely recommended. Among the
late varieties, Lincoln Oats have
given best results.
Various rates of seeding Kherson
oats have been tested since 1903. Re
sults 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, tho 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 pecks of larger-grained
varieties. Hence, the rate
of seeding depends a great deal upon
the size of the grain. Counts have
been 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 acre are produced where
four pecks is used as where eight
pecks is used, due to the stooling of
the oats under thin planting.
Cultivation of oats has been prac
ticed since 189S, 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 with
an ordinary smoothing harrow or
wcedcr. It has not been found advis
able to plant oats in drills wide apart
excopt' in a very dry season, when
drilling twelve inches apart gave fair
'esults. 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, where the oats were sown
broadcast, harrowing has given a
slight decrease in yield, due to the
fact that many plants were destroyed
in harrowing. It is recommended
that oats be drilled and harrowed.

over the state before the war as the
"Athens of Missouri." and for many
years the rival of Trenton as a tra

many men. afterward prominent in
state affairs received their first col
legiate training, was disincorporated
recently by an order ot the county
The order marks the last step In
tho little town's retrogression since
the Chicago, Rock Island & Quincy
and Omaha ft Kansas City railways
passed the village by.
The story of the settlement, growth
and decline of the village of Edinburg
is full of interest. The town came into
existence in 1S38 when Isaac J. Harvey
built a store there. Not so favorably
situated as Trenton, the growth of the
town did not compare with that of the
county seat until after 1850. At the
half-way mark of the century Grand
River college was established in Edin
Then came an era of prosperity. The
fame of the school grew, and in
structors of the best were numbered
in the faculty. The pretty little town
was in itself an attraction to students,
and the name of Edinburg became
widely known. Business boomed, the
town took on a thriving air and the
county seat feared for its own growth.
Then came the war and progress
stopped. The luster or the classic
school became dim. After the war
there was a revival of learning ia
Edinburg, and the prospect was fair
again, until the Chicago. Rock Island
& Pacific railroad came through in
1S71 and marked Trenton as tho fu
ture city of the section.
Business projects were killed in Ed
inburg, and the village lost ground,
but the fame of the school still lived.

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 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 uni
versity authorities are tightening up
the strings on scholarship was indi

university were dismissed on account
of failure in their studies, which
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.
