Knellah Wheat Deteriorating.
English millers say that they are
obliged to mix large quantities of im
ported wheat with the home-grown
wheat to obtain a sample of flour that
will rank as first class and command a
good price. They say that the quaUty
of the English wheat has degenerated
for milling purposes, and churge that
this Is lu part the result of a lack of
care In selecting seed. There is no doubt
that inferior seed, small or shrunken,
will result In a poorer grain, especially
if the practice; Is continued. The large,
plump grain is the cheapest seed to use.
A change of seed from one locality to
another may have some effect In im
proving It, and experiments In regard
to crosa fertilization are In progress,
which are hoped will unite the good
qualities of some of the most hardy,
prolific and best milling varieties. Some
of them have been very successful thus

In seeding down a lawn in the fall
winter wheat may be sown with tho
grass seed, and it will not only prevent
the soil from washing, but give the
ground a beautiful fresh green sward
early In the spring, which may be kept
clipped, but will remain until the grass
Is well grown among It. The wheat will
keep down the weeds, and the chango
from the green of the whent to that of
tho grass will be so gradual as to be
scarcely noticeable. The sward will bo
firm nnd even If the work Is well done,
without holes or gullies. If the lawn is
not made until spring oats or spring rye
may do as well, though we prefer tho
oats. These methods are much prac
ticed by the gardeners around Wash
ington nnd in the parks of some other
cities, to save the trouble and expense
of sodding large areas.

A Missouri correspondent of the
Knnsns Farmer says of the Bokhara or
sweet clover that he thinks It one of tho
best forage plants for tho arid regions
of the Western States, and that cattle
eat the hay In preference to any other.
It will grow on soils whero nothing else
grows, ana win soon make them fertile

kill out all weeds and small bushes nnd
take complete possession of the land,
yet as It Is a biennial It cannot becomo
a pest If mown before It goes to seed,
