Blrchard, head of the Do- iniDloQ Grain Research Laboratory at 'A'ianlpeg, has furnished for publica- tion the following statement en the milling and baking values ot sprouted Tbe value ot flour milled from sprouted wheat Is being -ludled In the grain research laboratory, do- pa rtnent of trade, and commerce.

A fu'l report, giving the detailed re- sults am! the methods employed, will be published later, but as the subject Is of oarticular importance, it has been thou.-iht advisable to publish at this time a preliminary statement setting forth .he chief facts which have been established as a result of these tests. ?t4 samplefc tested were for the most part, graded by the Inspector, "No Grade, Number Three Northern, Rejected, tough or damp." Croat rarl- atlojs were observed in the' amount and degree ot sprouting of the dif- ferent samples o! grade, and since. In addition, the character ot the or- iginal wheats differed widely: before sprouting occurred, great care bad to exercised in drawing. conclusions trim the milling and results. It was thus time's7 difficult to de- cide wlistiier any. particular defect in baking quality should be attributed to the sprouting .or'fo-the in- herent .quality, of the original .wheat OATS CAN STAND FOUR DEGREES OF FROST lhat dur- tba past year all hotels ikrtt had bcun closed, owing to tlio liquor regu- lations had.tieen reopened, W, Slar. hotel, commissioner. idlcted that evevy town and village ot 'any site in' Manitoba wonld hare a refore the end ot next year. Oats In western Canada will stand up to 4.6 degrees of frost before germination qualities are according to experiments, '.he results of which were briefly outlined today by James Tl. Fryer, seed analyst at the Dominion seed branch, Cal- gary, at the convention of agricultur- al professors, Instructors and btiora will late today organize the West- ern .Canada Society ot Agronomy.

Without doubl many, of the poor results can be ex plained in thiS'tnunner, but to wha extent the deterniinallpn should be re- ferred to the causes' mentioned, or to the sprouting, it was net always pos slble to determine. Froin the 'series of, tests which have besn completed however, Ji. would appear thai the fol- conclusions are war- ranted Milling Value regards the. milling value the sprouting must be regarded as di'tsri- mental since the scouring loss is in- creased and the yield of flour de- creased. This loss was found in general to increase with tho amount rind degree of -Rprdiitinij, though, ex- cepting in those cases where the sprouting W33 comparatively severe, the scouring loss due to this cause alone was too small to be detected on the experimental mill. As regards tho baking, quality, the most marked characteristic was the greatly increased loaf volume -when tho ordinary baking methods were employed. This wag obsen-tfd In olor ot the bread trom the spronted wheat, whet; aloue, was gen- erally poor, though In thoie cases whens tbe sprouting was not seme, i certain Improvement was noticed. t be partlcunrly noted, how- ever, that when a mixture was made ot ?Iour from wiieat grading one, two or three Northern, and variom pet- up to 26 of flour from iprout- ed wheat, containing a large prppor- lon of hard kernels, both the color and texture were Invariably improv- ed, but this Improvement could not ua obtained if the orlglual wheat was ot inferior quality.

In conclusion, it -should be. noticed that the best result3 with flour from sprouted wheat ara to be obtained by mixing the flour with that milled from hard wheat. The baking ot flour from sprouted wheat (no grade, rejected, three Northern) alone, cannot be recommended, but it has been shown that It can be blended with hard wheat floar to considerable advantage, oven In comparatively -large propor- tions. Thus It was found that 20 cent, or more of from %n aver- age sample of sprouted wheat a grade it is difficult to say anything very definite on account of the great 'variations which, occur la the qualify of tiio original wheat and also in .the degree p.nd amount of sprouting, it observed, ho ir ever, that, when the original wheat was inferior and contained a large percent- age' M istarchy' kernels, tho baking quality.. was" hot- that har3 wheat o_n the other hand' cV-uld a much greater 'Sprouted keruels very, large and! tbe sprouting far ad- vanced'' that 'tie poor texture, color, etc., referred to above, became dent.
