I had 190 acres, "stubbled that is disced in on the stubble, which yielded me 22 bushels to, the acre at 87 1-2 cents per bushel, which paid me per acre. I also had 35ti acres of strictly volunteer crop which it was intended to prepare Jn the summer but when seen that it was a good looking crop it-was allowed to go. From this we threshed 15 bushels to the acre which paid, us at 87 1-2 cents per bushel, per acre. Our total crop yield- ed us bushels of first class wheat. Taking it as a whole I con- sider that I had a first class crop all through and taking into consid- eration the fact that part of the crop having been "stubbled in" and part strictly "voliiteer, >-hich was never touched.'at'all until the" binder was put into 1- consider 1 had a heavy crop and X might say that I TSTSS. in North Dakota five years and'I never grew as .heavy a crop during that time.
