Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta fjj. .ETHBRID6E HERALD �-ViP�ON .i!id loOO iippliiations- SEED GRAIN SPECIAL Big Crowd Heard the Addresses at Lethbridge. The C. P. R. seed ;j;nun special spent Monday in the Lethbridge district, and Gcnond Freight Agent Lannigan, wlio is in charge of the train, told tlio Herald that they had tiie biggest crowd of the tour at Raymond, wliere they were coui-pelled to hold nn overflow meeting in the station. The seed grain s{x�cial is an innovation of the C. P. R.. and its i)nrpose is to educate the farmers to ns(> clean seed and to rid tluMr fiirnis of rust, smut and weeds. At the Li'th-bridge gathering, which tilled one of the cars of the train to overflowing. Mr. Lannigan said that this year twice as nnich wtstern wheat had been reji>cted at Fort William up to Dec. i2th. 11)05. than up to the same time tlu> year before. The rejections since that time were still larger, and in many instances the crops had shrunk to 10 bushels per acre. He ealcalate^l that SiU,-tXW.OOO had been lost to the fann-ers throuiih smut and weeds in IDUo. The C. V. \i. wanted to vid the country of the.^e curses and it was in ortler to educate the farmers along these lines they had introduced the seed special. Geo. H. Chirk. Doinitiion seed commissioner, pointed out that smut effected wheat like a mould on fruit. It takes the place that starch and gkitten should occupy in the wheat. Smut lived in the soil from one year to another and it would take probably ten years to rid the farm of this disease. He emphasized the import;mce of using good clean seed, then they woidd improve the quality and increase the yield Ho had noticed some time ago that Alberta Red riiJenctl unevenly with many small heads. To improvi' and to keep up the good reputation of this wheat, it was necessary to sow absolutely Dure seeds, Mr. Clark expressed lis admiration for the Lethbridge district, and put in a good word for the beet sugar industry at Raymond. Mr. Willing, chief weed insi^ect-or 'for Saskatchewan, drew the fainiers' attention to one locality in the west where 81111 weed seeds had been found in what had been sold as wlieat. Smut, he said, could be prevented by treating the wheat seeds, with pure bluestone. Mix the solution thoroughly with the seed. One pound to four or five gallons of water would do four or five bushels of seed wheat. He advised the use of formalene. one pound to forty-five gallons of water in treating oats. In all weeds he advised the killing of the plants, by as much plowing and harrowing as possible, before it had an opportunity to seetl, Angus McKay, of the experimental farm, Indian Head, exp ain-(xi to the farmers the two bi-st ways to test seed grain. One of the causes of smut, he said, was the sowing of poor grain. S. A. Betlford, of the experimental farm. Brandon, and M. Mitchell, of Macleod, were with the train but. they did not speak. The meeting lasted an hour and seemed to be much appreciated. From here the special went to Macleod. Each car is decorated with samples of ixjor and good grain, weeds. The speakers travel in a private car. LOOK HERE MEN A Big SlfKsh in Prict^s. i reduction.
