GROWING INTEREST IN WHEAT
For a long time an immense area
of alkalino soil in the west was
thought to bo fit only for cactus and
sage brush. Now, Dr. L. II. Smith of
the Illinos agricultural station, re
ports that a kind of wheut has been
found that will grow on alkaline soils
and the alkaline regions of the far
west may one day be tho great wheat
centers of tho country. A common
variety of Minnesota wheat was
planted in several pots filled with a
soil containing strong doses of alkali
In all tho pots, except one, the wheat
plants grown, wero only partially de
veloped. In the one pot the soil grew
strong and thrifty. The offspring of
this plant inherited tho qualities of
its progenitor on being replanted, so
that the alkaline resisting power is
apparently a permanent characteris
This is but following the methods
of Inbreeding by which live stock was
originally improved and the different
It is one more step in advance to
ward dosort reclamation. Some of the
best corn lands of Kansas and Texas
were developed by breeding a corn
suitable for the climate and improv
ing the method of cultivation from
planting to listing.
THE RICHEST MAN
The question as to who is tho rich
est man in the world, John P. Rocke
feller or tho lato Frederick Weyer
hauser, is not to be setttled by the
probating of the Weyerhauser will.
No statement of tho wealth of Weyer
hauser was ever obtainable from him
during his life time. Now, after his
death, it appears that his wealth was
mostly incorporated in two companies
the Weyerhauser company of Wis
consin and Minnesota and the stock
distributed among his children ten
yearB before the passage of the inher
itance laws. As a soft pedal financier
Weyerhauser was without a peer.
VALUE OF ROADS
Tho state highway commission of
Iowa has recently figured out that if
the state had been supplied with ce
ment roads or with hard roads during
the month of February that the farm
ers of Iowa would have been able to
market millions of bushels of corn at
prices which wero ten cents higher
than they aro now.
That extra profit on corn would
have paid a mighty debt for highway
improvement something of perman
ent value to the Iowa farmer.
When will we learn that tho right
way Is the cheap way.

THEORY AND PRACTICE
When President Wilson was up for
election it was urged against him that
ho had no practical experience in the
larger affairs of men but was a th
orizer and schoolmaster.
Tho two years of his term, now
completed, have demonstrated that
man, really learned in the theory
economics and government, is better
prepared for practical service than he
who has had a great denl of service
but has really never analyzed and un
derstood the fundamental theory. The
latter often sees but the small par
with which ho is mostly engaged
the former from the distance views
the entire field.
Then again, the man of theory
comes to his task, devoid of selfish
interest and prejudices that are im
possible to avoid in many years
service and dealing with various int
For example, tho merits of the
present regional reserve banking sys
tern are due to the fact that the plan
was drawn up by a man who thor
oughly understood the theory of econ
omics and banking but who was de
void of selfish prejudice that years of
service in the banking business would
have developed in one.
A great banker could have devised
a system that would have been per
fect from the standpoint of the bank'
crs but it took the disinterested and
comprehensive view point of a man of
theory to develope the present plan
Perhaps the greatest surprise to
the people is that Wilson has proven
himself the best executive that ever
cat in the presidential chair. He ac
complishes ends and handles men
with less fuss and greater effective
ness than Roosevelt, though Roose
velt's strong point was executive
ability and not thinking. After all
where is a person more accustomed

PEAS AND OATS
Farmers who failed to sow a suffi
cient amount of vetch and oats last
fall so they aro short of green feed
nd forage pasture, cow hay, or sum
mer silage, will find field peas and
oats one of the best crops for spring
sowing for these purposes. Peas aro
nn excellent substitute for vetch and
oats which as a rule do not do well
when sown in the spring. For best
results field peas' must be seeded just
as early as possible, preferably in fact
before tho fifteen of March. They
should bo drilled in at tho rate of two
to two and one-half bushels per acre,
three or four inches deep, followed
about ten days later with one and
one-half bushels of oats drilled over
the peas cross-wise to a depth of a
bout one and one-half inches.
