Saunders, Dominion Cerealist) The need for a very early ripening of wheat, capable of produc- ng straw of fair length when grown n rather dry districts, has led to the ntroduction of Pioneer.

June 19th, In support of the statement that Oertnauv has passed the height ol her offensive ahility, it is pointed out that since the dash into France last autumn the Germans have been uu- able to make any appreciable pro- u-f-l tr sress against the Franco-Flanders While this the contrary, they batlleiroiit.

Pioneer is a selection from the progeny of a cross made in 1903 by he Dominion Cerealist between" Riga and Preston wheats. In earliness the new variety stands between the two parents, or it may Jje described as ripening about midway between Pre- ude and Marquis. Pioneer is bearded and has smooth chaff. The straw is of fair length, rather long for so ear- y a wheat, and though not of .very great it appears to be Quite strong enough for the districts for which it is recommended. Pioneer should not be sown r in any locality where the tendency 'is towards long straw. Under such conditions the straw of this variety wo.uld probably ae too long and weak. Furthermore, Pioneer is liable to rust and other disease in moderately moist climates. The kernels of "Pioneer are red and of exceptional hardness and high weight per bushel. The flour obtain- ed from it is of excellent color and very high baking strength. the contrary, they hack at several points, notably, north of Arras. The German victory in C.ahcia is credited to temporary shortage of shells in Russia.
