Sweet hud of promise snatched away,
In life's first opening lilnmn;

With the unnumbered dead.

To Mr George Belshaw.
Editor GfAiti), Sir: -I will make one more
proposition to Mr UeUhaw for a wheat and
flour contest We may learn from Mr lietshaw'a
letter in the (iL'Alti) that he will have nothing
to fear in thu content that I prnpiie, I well
know that he ha expeiiiuented largely with
many varieties of of wheat, and ha been the
winner iu numerous tests, if not in all cases
where he has offered or accepted them. One
reason why I wish for a wheat and fl ur con
tent with him is to try to raise the grade of
wheat and flour by a coinpuri nn of the same
with his. I Would use in such couipaiisou a
variety of wheat I obtained of him, and one
that 1 think is much superior to the little club
t'clu-rally grown east of the Cascade mountain.
I am quite sure Mr lielnhaw wi'l aooept my
proposition, and if iu Join,' so we cm rai-e the
grade of our wheat, II the honor shall hi
awarded to him. I uj.vpt the 'u points to lie
