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

Edinburg Dies a Natural Death When Railroads Pass It By Noted for Beauty and an Excel lent Cellege. Trenton. Mo. Edinburg. known over the state before the war as the "Athens of Missouri." and for many years the rival of Trenton as a tra ding point and political center, where many men. afterward prominent in state affairs received their first col legiate training, was disincorporated recently by an order ot the county court. 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 burg. 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. BsiuiiiBsiyyi 9kw ja!- "ayjngt tr3 Grand liver College. Pleading for a Prisoner. Leon Angus, sentenced to life im prisonment for complicity in the mur der of Nels Lausten of Omaha, was granted a hearing on an application ror a commutation of sentence by Governor Shallenberger. A Fat State Treasury. State Treasurer Brian's monthly -eport shows that the state has on deposit in cash in banks $760,999. md that the treasurer has on hand cash items amounting to $146,102 and that he is accountable for $907,101. Another railroad came through from Quincy and Edinburgh hopes quicken ed that it would reach that place. When this failed, however, the doom of the village was scaled. Steadily since then the town has lost In population and business. A few years ago the college itself was re moved to Gallatin in order to secure railroad advantages. In December. 1909. the petition for disincorporation was presented to the court. J. G: Mc waid was appointed trustee for the incorporation, to settle up its affairs, and classic Edinburg is no more. 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 the premium. A further indication that the uni versity authorities are tightening up the strings on scholarship was indi cated by a meeting of the delinquency committee. Three students in the 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. Quick Lunch in England. The quick lunch has been tried In London, and has failed as an adver tisement. But many of us lunch quick ly, and this writer went into the oy ster shop for his half dozen, and felt his elbow pinched. He turned and saw a triend who knew. 'Three na tives." he said, "and a glass of chablis." "Is that all you have for lunch?" was the immediate question. "That's only the beginning." he ex plained, and as we stood elbow to el bow at the oyster bar he expounded to mo his method of the itinerary lunch. It takes nim two hours at midday. He begins with three oysters at the bar. Then he walks for half an hour with an objective of the place where kidneys on toast arc at their best. Having disposed of these, be walks for another half an hour, and finds the place where stewed cheese can be relied on. By that time it is three o'clock and he walks home and he gins work again, having had his exer cise and bis lunch and bis digestive intcrvaL Also he has seen a bit of London, which Is useful to a delineator of life. The itinerary lunch may be recommended to a man of Inquiring mind and sedentary habit London Chronicle. Adjutant General Hartigan desires very much that both regiments of the Nebraska National Guard go to Fort Riley for the encampment, which has been changed from September to Au gust 15. He has written the war de partment to see just how many men he will be permitted to bring along, but as yet has received no reply. No company whose men and officers number less than forty-three will be permitted to go, so companies with a less number will be forced to recruit up to past that number or be left at home.
