Editor Willamette Farmer: .
Our country i red with rust on
wheat, but not so bad a the valley.
1 enclose you a eptoiraen of wheat
that the rust ha no ctt'ect on and it
is my opinion that it is more sure for
a crop than any wheat we have. It
will fill either on any land that oais
will either wet or Jry, and I believe
it is entirely free from rust. I have
a piece ot mix acres alongside of a
piece of Uig Club, both sown the
mime time on the same kicd of land,
nnd while the club i rusly there "
not a sign on the other, a you can
see. The grain it well matured.
Some of my nuiirhbort have also some
of the sume wheat which is free from
rust, while other kind are not fit lo
cut. Please iulorm tbe, if. you can,
the name ol the wheut. Wo call it
the Houston wheat taken from the
Hon. II. C. Houston, he being tt
first le introduce it in this country.
. Our bat crop is a little above sn
avemge thi year. I hear seme ot
my neighbors talking of 100 bushels
per acre, but it we get 50 1 shall be
satisfied with the result.
Yours truly, W. M. Cuksukb.

our earth will get colder and colder,
