Announce that durun wheat is in every
way a superior wheat for bread raising,
and that the former prejudice against it
is entirely ill founded.
Durum is the new name for macaroni
wheat. The department says the old
name is misleading and inaenrate, for
the particular kind of wheat to which
the term is applied is as suitable for
making bread as for making macaroni.

merly the northwestern millers were
pretty generally of the opinion that the
so called macaroni (durum) wheat was
not suitable for making bread flour, and
f irmers were not advised to raise it, In
View of the recent experiments all this
is changed. Durum wheat last year
commanded a high price, and hundreds
of millers and bakers have reached the
conclusion that it is one of the most
valuable kind of wheat on the market.
A prediction of the profitable crop oi
1904 ha been made. Fifteen or twenty
millions of bushels npon the regular
production of other kinds is large
quantity to be added to the general pro
duction of the United States. The rais

a ort of substitute for irrigation, for It
is admirably adapted to semi-arid, and
even certain arid lands, where almost
nothing else will grow.

The estimate for 15,000,000 to 20,000,-

consideration entirely the enormous
area of the semi-arid and even arid dis
tricts admirably adapted to this grain
which have not been touched by the
farmer. The officials of the deparment,
who conducted the experiments, say
the possibilities in reach oi the farmers
and commercial men in the production
of and trade in this new grain are not
yet suspected by the people in general.

The use of durum wheat for making
macaroni furnishes material for a long
discussion in the report on the wheat
recently made to the department, but
the main object was to determonstrate
the suitability of this grain for making
bread flour. There are large number
of macaroni factories in the United
States, big and little, although a large
portion of the macaroni consumed in
this country is imported from Europe,

It seems likely that the woolgrowers

next spring, says the Idaho Statesman.
There is a general boom in the market,

offering to contract clips at prices tar
above those that prevailed a month ago.
In all the Western states contracts are
being made at these fancy prices. In
Utah wool has been contracted at nine
teen cents and in Oregon and Idaho the
clips are being sought.
This movement is not confined to our
Western states, not yet to this country.
American buyers are operating in all
the principal wool-growinsr parts of the
world. Everything in sight is being
taken, and it seems probable the entire
wool supply will be in American hands.

Prior to 1901 durum wheat could rare

ass considered an inferior article, and
was grown in small quantities only and
then it waa generally fed to stock.
Since iti commerciitl value has been
leinonetrated, the production has in
creased from 100,000 bushels, the largest
estimate in 1U01, to at least 6,000,000
bushels in 1903 an increase of 60 fold
in two years. On March 19, of this

new season opens. Most important of
all, much the larger portion was sold to
