BARLEY AND FLAX WERE DISCUSSED Interesting Papers Read at: Kedlonal Meetings Held in Wesley CImivli At the inurniiij; sessions oi tile Coii- rcss held at the Methodist chinch- papers uere read and discussions fol- lowed oir cavh. The sessions were, di- vided into piirls', one with Alfred At- kinson as chairman, lire oilier with. Ur. Shepherd. Harley ilrccdiag II. Deri', department ot agricul-j ture, Washington, D. C., read a pa- per mi "Progress in Barley Breed- ing." The lirst important work in this was done by. tile Minnesota Ex- pcrinrrntal Station. A number of pure strains of Manchuria harlcr were produml, arid were distributed among the fanners in the state. In the work or improving; barley the office of cer- ral investigation at Washington ad- vocates the improvement of the crop Hie selection. This requires' JtUlc skill, simply a clear eye, and an abil- ity to distinguish between form and color. Any farmer can improve his crop by simply collecting [ran his field a large mimher of the best heads from the best plants throughout the field. Plants upon tho outer edge are not to be used. The seed' thus select- ed should be'planted in a plot by it- self, and just before harvest all plants in this plot not conforming to the type expected should be removed. Ily following this plan for a lew years an improved strain of barley can he produced w'hich will outyieid the original. Amongst good varieties of barley is the two-rowed barley known its ll.iuuclien, also Gataini, a black six- rowed ripens easily. Flax .Improvement IT. L. Bollcy submitted a paper on "Flax Improvement Through Breed- _ There are many reasons why flax is" a particularly desirable crop for the plant breeder to spend his en- ergies upon. Aside from its peculiar disease relations it is a sturdy type of plant.. It is a plant which tecanse of certain difficulties associated with the crop gives failure under ordinary farm management methods, thus mak- ing it ciuite certain that its products will always demand a fair price. Unlike almost all other crops, flax yet remains just flax.

Like every other native plant which man has nol worHn -sp- oil and acted upon' through bis selec- tive influence the'flax crop shows an extremely wide variation of charac- ters. There never, was a Has plant like any other (lax plant. No ctop will pay better under dronthy conditions than, the Ilax plant. It is a more drouth resistant than any other of the small grains. "1 predict for this plant a phase in the agriculture of this region second to that of no. crop, [or its. products arc those for which there are no sub- stitutions.' It will furnish raiment for our and decoration and pre- servation for our homes, in a form which can be furnished by no other plant." Livestock Hiceding Professor I.enfield, of Montana Ex- perimental Station, gave an interest- ing talk on tiic value of mixed farm- ing. Crop must precede HVestocK. Hut there was a problem ahead. We could obtain crops, but we require-not only present but permanent success, and that was to be found in livestock. Livestock is going to maintain the humus of the soil through fertiliza- tion by manure. It, will he the means of causing a greater variety of crops principally of the leguminous variety for fodder. When a dry season does not give a good crop "We have got to overcome it. A man who has live- stock is never itfiing to lose a .cvdp, not only that, but-livestock forml l means of marketing his crop. The kind oi stock is to be decided by local conditions. On small- farms i the best returns are from three sourc- es, the dairy cow, the hog and chick- jcns. Cows and hogs will turn feed into a higher return for cash than I anything else. Every dollar o( feed I for cows gives a return of two dol.- i lars, every dollar on hogs
