PAGE EIGHT HERALD OF INTEREST TO THE TREATMENT OF WILD OAT LAND. * 9 and some interesting conclusions are deduced from various methods of treatment of this weed. The pily effective methods are derived from the facts that the seed germinates most readily in the early spring and in the presence of other plants. In a system of all grain farming, therefore, the fallow and stubble .must oe so worked as to furnish the most favorable conditions for early sprins germination. The seed of the wild oats falls to the ground at the time of. or shortly previous to, harvest and so long as it ' lias there it is perfectly safe for it � will not grow, nut if covered by a little earth, it will be sure to grow the following spring. If this stubble land be left till spring and then seeded to grain, or ploughed or cultivated or disced and then seeded, the wild oat will germinate at the same time as the sown grain and lower the yield of good grain accordingly. If, how-war, the wim oat be covered In the fall or early spring by shallow plough- � tag or double discing or cultivating and than harrowed and left till germination has wail begun and again shallow ploughed or double disced, the waed is killed and the land is in clean condition for a crop of good crate. la a system of fanning where the rotation Is all grate such as summer-fallow followed by two crops of wheat ad a crop of coarse grain the treatment It In accordance with the forego teg principles.

In the early spring, harrow this worked-over stubble land and leave till the weed seeds are .germinated. Sow and pack the land that had been fallowed the previous year. Then come back to the land that hns borne only one crop since fallowing and shallow plough it. harrow and pack and sow to wheat and puck again. If the preceding fall was wet. the first year stubble might have to be ploughed in the fall and sown in the. spring immediately after the sum mer-fallowed laiid was sown. All the land should be packed as soon ns sown. By the time the wheat is sown iu an ordinary season, the weeds on the remaining laud will have germinated and all that which has borne two crops since fallowing should now be ploughed a little depor than previous ly, packed, sown to outs or barley and packed again. The time is well ou now towards the middle of May and respite can be taken for planting such boed-crops as may be grown and by the end of the first week in June there will be a beautiful stand of weeds and especially of wild oats on that which should be ploughed now at least six Inches deep and kept cul tlvated for the remainder o� the sea son sufficiently to prevent further seed growth. The method thus outlined, faithfully followed, coupled with care to prevent Introduction of wild oat seeds in impure seed grain or by means of animals, will keep the plague in check to such au extent that very little loss will result. But the method will not completely eradicate the pest nor does it seem possible to eradicate It without the introduction of hoed crop in the rotation after summer-fallow. SEEDING TO GRASS. * Several years ago a series of exr, periments in seeding down to grass was started on the Western Experimental Stations. Some time was required to perform the preparatory work that was necessary to put this experiment on a good working basis. The first comparable hay crop was harvested on the Scott Station in 1915, so that the results from three crops are now available. The experiment consisted first In seeding down with and without a nurse crop, and secondly In determining the influence of pravtOBs crops and previous cultivation on the lay crop. In this experiment 14 pounds of Western Rye Grass and 10 pounds of Red Clover par acre ware used. Owing to the unfavorable climatic conditions and to lack of proper inoculation the Red Clare* was more or less a failure very saason.

The Red Cross sawing Is going on from week to week as usual. Oorothy Mlatona gave a birthday party on Monday afternoon, to which a number at her class-mates were invited. A pleasant time was spent. The ranks of the senior pupils at school are sadly depleted these days owing to a large number engaging in farm work at home. Three girls and six boys are so engaged. Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Morton and CMughfr Vistula, returned on Monday afternoon from Santa Monica, California, where they have been since the beginning of the year. The sermon on Sunday was delivered from the text, "Unless I wash tfaae, thou hast no part In me." The speaker showed that our part and the Lord's part were one-to bring the Kingdom at God into the world-but that we conld not do our part unless we be cleansed from sin by Him. There will be a special meeting of the Quarterly Official board of the, church on next Monday evening to arrange for the closing of the financial j year of the church, and to consider again the question of church union. This subject was discussed a year ago j but no action was taken, since a union) could not be affected so long as the church was receiving support from the mission board. But this obstacle! has been removed, since the church1 here will be self-supporting hence-1 forth. i Just about time again to think about! baseball.

Jackson, formerly general secretary Of the Ontario Sunday school association, died at Toronto, lie used to be principal of Iriquois High school. cracked wheat and sows with the same drill. In this case the seed waa sown somewhat shallower than with a nurse crop as the young grass plants have mora difficulty In breaking a crust on the soil when no grain plants are present. In all the grass seeding experiments the land was well worked down with thp harrow and packed before and after seeding. With the exception of where the grass was sown with grain on summer-fallow land the yields from seeding the grass alone have been aimrat double those secured where the grass was sown with a nurse crop, but It was found in the second crop oi hay harvested that there was practically no difference in yisld betweeu the plots sown with a nurse crop and those sown without. With grain at such a high price It would appear to be more profitable to use the nurse crop although the yields of hay from the first crop are lessened. Influence of Previous Cultivation and Previous Crops. In this part of the experiment land that had been summer-fallowed the previous year, land that had grown roots, land that had only grown one crop of grain and land that had grown two crops of grain after fallowing were -sown to grass. It is interesting to note that where grass whs sown with a grain crop on summer-fallow the yields were over two .-tons per acre, but where sown with grain after roots or grain crops, the yields were only about 26#0 pounds per acre. The yields after roots exceeded slightly-the yields after grain crops, but no difference was noted between sowing after one crop or grain and sowing after two crops. The heaviest crop of hay wss secured by ploughing under S tons of rotted barnyard manure in the fall before seeding down. The average yield from this plot exceeded the amount secured from sowing the grass on summer-tallow land. This increased yield has also been continued into the second cropping year. The average yield tor the. three years from the firBt crop of hay taken off the manured plot amounted to 2% tons per acre and from the second year 2 tons. In the above experiment the stubble land was (ail ploughed and worked down into seed bed condition in the fall. The root land was cultivated in the spring and in each case the land was put into good tilth, and no difficulty has been experienced in getting a catch of grass, although as previously mentioned the clover his not thrived excepting where there waa a depression in the soil that would hold the moisture and afford better winter protection. Tha plots were usually sown the latter part of April or quite early in May in order to utilise the spring moisture for germinating the'small seeds.

If 50,000 Canadian farmers each replaced one horse with a Ford, 250,000 acres would be added to the Nation's source of food supply and enough extra food made available to feed 100,000 people. - , Just think what a great service this means to the country at the present time and the benefit to the farmers irom the sale of food produced on this acreage. ' � A Ford car also paves the farmer svtreek or more r>f valuable time each year, which can be used for further productive work. The Ford travels three times as fast as a horse and rip-costs lees to run and keep, and is far easier to take care of.
