They were ob-'uined from Minnedosa, Clan William, Newdale, Shoal Lake, Moor-oark, Russell, Roblin and Shell-mouth. One sample from Newdale '.'erminatcd 70 per cent and one from .Moorpark 72 per cent. Samfilesfrom ^hellmouth iaid Roblin germinated mly 4 per cent. Dauphin.-Only one sample was tested from the Dauphin district. It germinated 70 per cent. Saskatchewan Oats. One hundred and two samples were received and tested from Die province of Saskatchewan. They iilso gave an average germination of 45 per cent and ranged from nothing to 98 per cent. Assiniboia East.-Twenty-five samples were received from As.siniboia East, which gave an average germination of 51 per cent. Simiple.s that germinated 60 per cent or mor.' were received from Carievale, Carnduff, Oxbow, Alameda, Moosomin, Langenburg and Saltcoats. Qu'Appelle.-Fifteen samples were received from the Qu'Appelle district. They gave an average germination of 50 per cent. One sample received from Estevan gave a gerniination of 89 per eent in four days. Assiniboia West.-Eleven samples were received from Assiniboia West, which gave an average germination of 51 per cent. Two samples from Balgonie germinated 10 and 9 per cent. Samples from Mortliieh germinated 77 , 55, 86, 54, 35 , 09 and 94 per cent. Mackenzie. - Twenty-one samples were received from the di.strict of .Mackenzie. They gave an average germination of 33 per cent. Six of these were received from Yorkton and gave percentages as follows: 61,! 82, 62, 48, 67 and 16. From all other ' points from which samples were received the samples would be considered unsafe for use for the purpose of seeding. Humboldt.-Fourteen samples were received from the district of Humboldt and gave an average germination of 45 per cent. Samples that germinated l(>gs than 40 per cefnt wore received from Wadena, Quill Lake, Melfort, Guernsey, ."Vrlington Beach, Davidson, Domraniy iuul Lad-slock. Saskatchewan. - Seven , samples were received from the district of Saskatchewan, with average germination of 48 per cent. Wingard, Ros-thern.

Germination Tests of Oats. It Ui generally known that the vitality of oats is seriously injured-by even a light frost before they are thoroughly ripened and cari>d. Oats lh.it have been killed by frost may easily be detected by separating out the saniijles of oat.s tested could be materially ti'sletl by thorough fanning. Considering tlu' danger of introducing new .si)rcie.i of weeds with the importation of fresh seed oats, it may hi" wi>ll to ei)ii.~ider whct/hor it would not in many cases be advisable to sow well fanned seed that would germinate only r>0 to 60 per cent, at tlie rate of tliree cent in ten days and No. 4, 76 in the same time. At least 250 samples of wheat, oats and barley are now being tested in the Ottawa Seed Laboratory, and a large number for Alberta have been received for test in the Calgary Seed Laboratory. A more detailed report, giving the complete results of this investigation work, will be prepared early in the new year. In the meantime an interim report will be presented covering the conditions in the province of Alberta. While the results of the vitality j tests that have thus far been made do not give grave cause for alarm, it is important that all available supplies of good clean seed oats and barley that were carried over from the 190G crop, or may be obtained from this year's crop, be husbanded for ne.xt spring's seeding. Farmers may obtain accurate information as to the vitality of their oat.s, barley or wheat by planting one hundred average grains in a flower pot or box of soil kept under conditions favorable to house plants. The information thus obtained will be most satisfactory to them. Until March 1 germination tests of seed grain received from farmers in the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta will have precedence over ail other work in both the Nine samples were j Ottawa and Calgary seed laboratories. Samples should be placed in strong cotton or pajier bags, the name and address of the sender enclosed, and addressed to Seed Commissioner, Department of .\griculture, Ottawa, or from Alberta to Seed Laboratory, Calgary. Samples addressed to Ottawa will be carried free by mail. Postage must be jirepared on all samples addressed to the Calgary laboratory. Frank G.
