Farror of New Soulh Wales, Australiu, sent to Dr. Saunders at tho Conlral H.xporlniental Farm, Ot-I'.iwa, a sainplo of., \vJ)Ht he callejl White Hobs wheat.: He said that it was obtained by cross breodlng bo-tweolN^m unnamed.' yiiripty ot wheat I and a variety ot hullosB and Ueardlnns barley kknown as Ncpanl. This is the only history of White Bobs Wheat that has come to Canada. Dr. Sauu- ' ders grew the wheat on tho Central Farm fpr a couple of years. He lonnd it to. hjiVQ 11 splendid straw and heart and to bp p.fesohitoly beardless, in fart' the only benrdless , wheat Krown In t'anaiia. \ The kor;iel was white and very hnrtl'ntid It ripened very munli earlier than Marquis.

IThdro Is a prejudice against white, �wheat infJanada .ind Ibo Canada Orain Act discriminates against it by barring It from tho higher giades. Dr. Saunders, as is bis custom, sent tlie new wheat to the e.xperinioutal farms. Seager Wheeler secured a ten pouiid sample oC Whiter Uolis wheat f^'om the Indian Head ICxijeriniental Farm la 1907. He had read ot il.s (piallty and its history and tboiight it worth in vnstlgating. He grow it on his plots and in x;'US it yielded at the rate of hushols per acre and had the same, (pmlities that Dr. Saunders had found it to possess al tho Otliuwa farm. To Afr. Wheeler's mind it was the ideal wheat for Western Canada except for its color.

In ,19n!> Mr. Wheel'br had tlie Wliito Dobs wheat growing on bil plots again. Wlien the wheat began to mature ho studied the various heads on llie plot to see It there was any sign of a change In color. Great was his Joy when he discovered ope head similui' to all tho rest in appearance, biiL containing red l)errios. A further sea'rch revealeil two or three heads (*)ntaining red kernels. These new beads were watched closely and when Ihey rlpojied Mr. Wheeler put the kernels aw.'o' \yitli great care for seeding llu! following year. Ill I lilt) he see;led the red kernels anrl most of them reproduced red. From then unlHIhe prcs('iit time Mr. Wheeler has been selecting the best strains of tills new lied Hobs wheat and multiplying them year by year. Mr. Wheeler is the most famous Jlar-tiuis grower ,ln Canada, which means in the world. He tested the Ked Bobs side by side witli the .Marquis in every way. Ho found tliat the Rod Bobs wheat ripened from six to ten days earlier than the -Marquis year liy year.

Tho yield was heavier, tho straw 'wifs stronger and tho bead was superior In Jilmost every resiiecl. He was also gratified to find that even though t'he head was more compact andniore'upright, yet it threshed easier than ibc Marquis. In 1917 Prof. Bracken grew some of tlie new Red Hobs wheat on his plots at Ihe university farm at Saslia-toon, and found that it ripened five or six days earlier than Marciuis, though tlie season was dry and there was not very much variation In the riiiening dates of the different wheats.
