GRAIN A valuable bulletin has just been issued by the Dominion Department of Agriculture on the subject oi grain i screenings, and from its perusal ninny important conclusions may be drawn, which will, of course, he of peculiar interest to our fanners. Por instance it is stated that ;in the year 1813 the dockage at" the Itenn'iiial elevators was in .weight equivalent to three and one-third mil- lion bushlls of. wheat, or nearly six million bushels oi oats. Much of the soreoniiiffs was re-cleaned and. fed .to live .stock in the United Stales. On this'enormous hulk- the termers have paid freight amounting to', about. commission, insurance- and all other charges at the same rale as if it had been good grain, and have received nothing whatever in return. The weed problem is one which 'af- fects at, evtry turn the farmers who grow weeds. The presence of weeds in the crop reduces the yield of adds to the cost of cutting and threshing because the latior would he' productive if the weeds were replaced' hy good marketable grain. 'The tnresh- crman cannot afford to thresh 5 to 10 per cent, of weed seeds without- being paid for it at the same rate as if he were-threfihing grain. In order to col- lect for threshing weeds he usually runs them into the granary with the grain, whereas the farmer couid pro- fitabl} arrange with the thresherman to screen out the small weeds, ply- ing, of course, for the threshing of the weed seeds at the same rate as foi the grain in wlmh tucj grew Threshing machines in ordinary use are, or mav-easily be, equipped, to separate a large, part of Hie screen- I ings, which should be. done over a one-fourl Rcnth inch perforated screen of zinc. The refuse from this opera-t lion is the only part of the screen- i ings'w-hich should be burnt, as it contain all tho useless, black, _ 'and nearly all noxious weed steds; The remainder can be ground in ordinary
