For years he co-operated with tha experi

Prof. IJuffum has given special at
tention to tha breeding of alfalfa and as
result he has grown seventy separate
and dlntlnct varieties, four of them being
hla own hybrids. Me haa crossed and
reerosned and hand peritonized this forage
plant until now ltd has one variety that
grows to a height at nine feet and pro
ducts four to six tons per acre and three
cuttings per year. It Is more hardy than
any of tho other varieties and la specially
adapted to tho semi-arid regions.
In carrying on his plunt breeding work
Prof. Huffum has brought forth wheat
that yields from thirty to fifty bushels
Tha professor haa given to tha public

yield of almost double that of tha old
varieties, and then ho haa made the old
varieties of oats ashamed of themselves,

turns out fifty, sixty and sometimes as
high as eighty bushels per acre. It has
tuken years to do this, but It has been
accomplished and tho seed Is producing

Probably the mutit wonderful seed pro
duction of Prof. Uuffum's rklll Is the
emmer, a grain of the wheat type, Tiav-
ing Immensely large and long heads arid
very strong straw. To produce this hand
pollenialng was followed, crosses being
made with many members of tho wheat
family until a grain that has a maximum
yield of ISO and an average of from DO to
150 bushels per aero was secured.

farmer of the present.
"He cannot do this snd use the same
Implements and methods his father used.
If he must do more work he must con
trol more power. This means that he
must use mechanical power Instead of
horse power. There Is a well defined
limit to tho number of horses that one
Hnan can work at one time. In general
that limit is about five or six. If one
ubgs engine power there Is no such limit.
Ho can use the power of twenty or sixty
horses just as easily as he could that of
five or six. In fact he has more abo
luto control of the power of that entfne
than he would have of the five or the six
The Traction Ensrlne.
"Drlefly stated, the reasons why the
traction engine will be used more and
more on the farms as the years come
and go, are these: The engine will do
practically all the labor now done on
farms by horses. It will do It cheaper,
better, surer and quicker than horses. It
reduces the number of men necessary to
farm any certain number of acres. This
leaves more men to go from the farms
and do the other tasks of Uia world.
Since the engine does the work of horses
It saves their feed to be manufactured
directly Into food for man, or else to be
fed to food producing animals, such as
hogs, cattle and sheep. -This means that
the use of a traction engine, the modern
farm horse, will Increase the amount of
wealth that one man can produce on a
farm, and at the same time reduce the
cost of producing, thus Increasing his
net income in both directions.
"For three years I have operated
farms where a traction engine was used
for everything possible. On these farms
we did all the work except planting, cul
tivating and husking the corn crop. We
plowed our ground, prepared the seedbed,
seeded the grain, harvested the crop and
threshed It. An engine was used to haul
the hay wagons and loaders when making
hay, to haul bundle wagons when thresh
ing, to haul the manure spreaders, and to
do al lthe other heavy hauling on the
farm, roads were dragged, roads were
built, twenty-three miles of tile ditch
was filled, open ditches were dug, all with
an engine instead ot horses. The engine
was used because It did the work better
and cheaper than It could be done with
"With an engine such as I use one or
ft mmSnVhUBB. I
two men will do work that would require
five or six men and twenty to thh;
horses. The fuel snd oil for the engine
would cost less than the feed for tin t
number of horses. This means doing t.i
work, cheaper than In the old way. Tlio
engine will also do It better. Because o
the largo amount of power under tho
control of ono man he can do n variety
of things at one time. He can plow and
dink and harrow at one time. He can
harvest and plow at one time. When
seeding on cornstalk ground he can drag
the stalks, double disk the ground and
drill In the grain all at one operation.
