Bclectlns Heed Wheat. I
The experiment stations nnd farmers
who hove trained themselves to close
observation of cause and effect have
given evidence many times that tho
nmount and quality of the wheat crop,
and of other grain crops, depends large
ly upon the quality of the seed used.
The larger and plumper seed gives tho
most vigorous growing plant. It stools
out more, usually has n stiffcr straw. If
It is not forced by the use of too rank a
fertilizer, by which we mean ono too
rich In nitrogen, and therefore tho bet

desirable In a cood Kraln crop. One Is
to secure large heads well tilled, and It
may also be desirable to have the grain ,

grow rapidly and mature early, either
to obtain the best result in a short sea
son, or to escape Insect attacks. The
best way to secure this would be to se
lect the earliest maturing large beads
to be found, and reserve them for seed.
The farmer who sows large areas may
think this too much trouble to get all
the seed be needs, but he should remem-
bor that If there. Is a profit In doing so
for one acre, there would be a greater
proflt In doing so on a hundred. A mod
ification of this plan is to select in tui3
way enough to sow a small plot very
thin, so that each nlant will have a
chance to do Its best, nnd then reserve
a piece of the best land to sow that on
It to produce seed wheat. A continua
tion of this process for a few years
would result In the production of an
extra early, hardy and prolific wheat
Even easier but less effectual would be
the selection of heaviest grain for seed

The boldlnc of farmers' Institutes has
been of great advantage In many locali
ties. Even when the chler speaker or
essayist has not been of the best, and
sometimes Just because he was not the
best, he has helped to bring out opin-1
Ions from local farmers whose Ideas,
no matter bow poorly clothed In lan
guage, were adapted to the locality and
more valuable there than the opinions
of one who bad obtained experience
upon different soil, In different climates
nnd under different conualons. There
Is also In many places a disposition on
the part of the hearers to ask questions.
They are not content to be told the best
wny to do their work, but they want to
know why It Is better than some other
way. that they may Judge If It will be a
ltetter way under their conditions, or is
only better when conditions are better.
Every step tauen in mis way is n step
In advance. Farming Is not a railroad
where one must follow a certain line of
track, but often a route turougn nn un- j
known territory where one must ex
plore to find the best path for himself.
Many people have poor success with
house plants because their bouses are
too good. They are kept at a uniform
beat by hot air furnaces, which furnish
a dry heat, and the rooms nre so care
fully closed against cold In the winter
that not a breath of fresh air gets In.
Plants need pure air, and they need
moisture for their leaves as well as for
their roots. The woman who has a few
plants In the kitchen where they get
the steam from the laundry work, and
where the outer door Is swinging open
often, or windows are opened to let out
the heat or odors, will have thrifty
plants though she devotes but little
time to them, while they may fall to
grow well In tho bay window of a mod
ern comfortable sitting-room.

Often a rain may come after wheat
has been sown, and on clay land so beat
down the soil that It will crust over or
bake when the sun comes out so that
many of the plnnts cannot get through.
Tho use of a light hnrrow with flno
sharp teeth will remedy this very
quickly without Injury to the plants
that are up, or those that are germin
ating. Nor does It Injure wheat to use
such a harrow on It lu the spring when
the clover seed la sown, unless the roots
have been thrown out by tho frost, in
which ense n roller Is needed to press
the plant roots back Into tho earth.
Tho Department of Agriculture Is try
ing to produco an orange which will en
dure frost, by crossing our native or
ange with the hnrdy, trifoliate ornngo
of Japan. They do not expect success
at the first trial, nud may get a bitter
or heavily seeded fruit, hut from oven
such fruit It may bo possible to pro
duco better nnd still retain tho hardi
ness. It Is well worth tho trial.
