ARTHUR PERRY IS A SCIENTIFIC FARMER A Visit to his Fine ivarm Near Cardston Proves It Cardslon, Aug. staff repre sensitive of the Herald visited this wsok, by Invitation, at the home and iTarm of Arthur Perry, the noted Card- ston fanner. Mr. Perry's 'iitim lies southeast of the Iowa on the Si. Mary's river, and nestled In the bottom is iMr. Perry's comfortable home and oiit buildings, and about -00 acres 'vf broken" fand. The news- paper man made welcome hy Mr. Perry and his estimable mother, and was shown about the farm, at the same time being given to understand lhat the owner 'was not seeking pub- licity, nor was he anxious to have hir, appear in the columns of a newspaper. The first place of interest visited was the garret of Mr. Perry's' home, where the winner of many agricul- tural has in preparation his ffn hftwnoi; inrt njjil to the acre. Two varieties of oal particularly interested Die Herald vi Hor. One was the Cerson oal whlc is a heavy oal With Ihln hull. Th top of the' head wuu thoroughly ripe while the grain at the of t'h head watt well g'rown. This is Mr Perry's experiment thi variety, and he is watching with Rrea interest the development of (he rip ening Tllci'O Wan also a hufi less oat which is beginning to ripen As well as wheat and oats, Mr Perry js experimenting with othei grains. A variety of hull-less am beardless barley 'was particularly'in leresiing, while buck wheat, sprnr., rye and fall rye were also shown In state of development. Best Kind of Fodder Mr. Perry is at the prenent time endeavoring to find out what will make the most satisfactory -fodder io grow in the district in which lie lives, lie has found timothy to ho unsatis- factory. Rroui-e will grow in places, but the difficulty IB to get rid of it once it gets into the ground. Alsack clover has been tried with consider- grasses which he is to exhibit at thu j ahle degree of-success, and Mr. Pern- ury-Fanmng Congress. The room j this year has two varieties of millet, order that! one.of Russian and the other Hun- was darkened by blind: the grass might mature without bleaching. About fifty samples of natural grass, all grown on .Mr. Perry's farm and picked mostly on lire hillsides and in the river llat, were there hanging almost ready for .reimportation to .the Congress hall. Some of this grass measured seven "eat in height, while, oilier samples vere but tbe length of one's hand. Mr. Perry makes no boast of being an expert, in the growing of vege- ablcs; but he exhibited -to liis guest "i ripe tomato among many green mes. In his splendid vegetable gsrd- :n here also' -were probably twenty different varieties of potatoes besides ether vegetables in'great variety and abundance. But what interested Mr. Parry's vis- itor most was his growing'. grain; he has set out In'experimental plots both in.the river bottom and on the high land on top. Mr. Perry has uej-n accused of irrigating In the. growing of some of big grain, but a. casual inspection of the land all about the experimental plots will show that at the present time irrigation is quite impossible. In one row of plots were twenty different varieties .of wheat. Among the important varieties which the visitor's attention was call- ed was .Kubanka, which has grown io a heighth of five feet six inches. -Mr. Perry remarked that nt the pres- ent tircfc western, mills were not equipped with machinery to mill this variety, but in time it would b'e a good variety and largely grown. There ivas a piece of regenerated lied Fife, ind seven or eight'acres (if the fa- mous Marquis planted, tvhich, under .Perry's care lias grown to "a plendid stand. Mr. 'Perry has also given a good eal of attention to'bats and has'tip- vards of a dozen varieties in "his 'lots, some of which it is estimated garian, but these be believes cannot be grown with success in this com- munjty. The visitor's attention was called to tbe fact that we have not a good grass which can be success- fully grown in this country, and Mr. Perry showed a plot of southern grasses which be is trying. From some of these plots Mr. Perr 'will gather bundles for an exhibit o sh-sal' of grain and fodder, and tb threshed grain for exhibiting in bill: worked' by 'hand. ''This will ensure that lio noxious weeds from1 a thresh mill will be allowed to mix wit! the grain and thus cause a rcduccioi in points." At the close' of the Herald repre sentative's'visit his .host made It ver; clear to him-that he was uot doing this work as work to the experinientaJ -'arms "of province or country, but merely for his own recreation and satisfaction. Nothing pleases Mr. Perry more than to watch the grain grow.- He-7'told the Herald that unlike the demonstration farms, he does not measure his grain 1101 weigh his seed. sure of the work to him is wholly In seeing the grain grow, and taking note of the resultant seed which produces. The Cardston f arm this .year not be permitted to'enter any of his grain in the Cardston" district exhi- bition according tb the rules of the Congress, those having individual ex- INAVAL ESTIMATES ALL THE TALK hibits arc not permitted to duplicate their exhibits in the one for the dls- C. Cardston will suffer greatly''in not having Mr, Perry's.grain to sup- plement the splendid samples which arc being cared tor in prepara- tion for this great 'exhibition. Mr. Perry is doing1 a splendid; work in the district in "which he lives hi' the in- terest which lias been', created in._a better method of farming- thaii has heretofore b-een adopted. TAKE THE PLACE OF INSURANCE ACT IN'-PUBLIC DISCUSSION IN GREAT BRITAIN London, Aug. naval males have taken the place of the Insurance Act In the public mind this week. At this period week the country wag demanding the gov- ernment" for the extra burden of tax- J'toHM ty the 'national insur- ance scheme. 'Thin week the people were on their knees begging that fur- ther faxates be Imposed., The proposed' increase in naval strength is a spectacle somewhat ri- Ilculous to 'the onlooker. The herl- litary b'jgey is dangled before the eyes of tbe public and there is a wild cry for more ships.
