Upon being asked particulars In regard to his crop be replied that ho was through thresh- ing and had threshed bushels ol wheat which averaged aboat 24 bush- els to the acre, and his oats, ol which he threshed 800 bushels, 35 bushels to the acre. Ills crop of wheat comprised three different .Varieties, namely, Red Dot Wheat, Kitchener and Registered It will be'ot Interest to (armors to know that the Red Bot wheat, with which bo 'was. experiment- lag, heat the otheYtwo varieties both in yield and ripening. .They were all .sown at the same time and each field {received the same cultivation, yet the Red Dob ripened about seven days earlier than the others and gave.a yield ol 33 bnsheis to the acre as against Kitchener 29 bushels and reg- istered Marquis 25 bushels. With these advantages over the other rarieties and also the fact that It Is claimed to be an "equally good'mlllirg wheat It seems to us that It would pay the farmers of this district to sow Red Bob wheat In preference to any other variety and 1C anyone would care to see a sample, sains can bo had from Mr. Lonimatzsch and any Bother Infor mation required. received by' The Herald from Paris, Krancej-' the Luther France, has made a dis- is 'expected to revolu- tionize vwheat growing in that coun- try.
