Quack-grass is. c.ns of the worst introduced by wind-blown joeds, by admixtures in grass seeds ind other farm seeds, in hay and oth- forage shipped to new localities; md it is being planted in new areas by means of improperly cleaned seed grain, improperly composted manure ind through tlie dragging about of ..he broken underground stems upoa larrows, plows, and other implements This grass never dies out in fertile Hinds. It grows latest in autumn and itarts'first of all grasses in the spring. rt forms a sod impenetrable by other ilants. It can crowd out brome grass; alfalfa or other cultivator plants. Its chief body is an underground branching, jointed stem, the roost- stock, in wffich much reserve mater- al is stored during the season of ;rowth. Through the vitality of the underground stems the plant bridges jver droughts aim oiiier hard times. There are nacent buds located at each point, ready to produce a leafy 5od from each broken part. Two or three hundred cush joints may 'be j'ound in a single square Foot of sod. This grass is closely related to the aatlve wheat grasses which it re- iemblos but is of muoh darker color, s somewhat smoother and produces a much heavier leafage.

Deep Plowing Increases Production T'Ae majority of farmers do not re- the full possibilities of .their soil be .cause they do not unlock by their rmcess of cultivation the plant food that is stored a few inches beneath the surface of the earth. Repeated plowing at approximately the same level forms a sort of floor through which the plant roots pass with dinleulty. Beneath this floor Is an abundance of the elements which are necessary for plant life, and un- ess the 'tiny roots are allowed to reach down and make use of this food it is of little avail in increasing the yield of the field. Tho usunl practice of plowing has another disadvantage in that It docs not break up the pores of the soil and check the evaporation of moisture. The most up-to-date methods of cul- tivation provide for deep plowing, says Kimball's Dairy Farmer. Some manu- facturers are making a. specialty of machines that turn the soil from S to 12 or 14 inches deep, bringing up n new and rich loam upon which the plants may feed. The use of the power plow which is rapidly increasing, makes it possible to plow to these greater depths. Still another method of loosening the plant food from lower levels is by the use of explosives. Agricultural blasting is coming to be a science in once from below; Early.hurley stuiible May or from fm ien sliorl noi can ho n lowed to good advantage the A shoU can be set a itself. In horticultural work, as well as in regular farming, the loosening of tho soil to a. greater depth is found valuable and profitable. Deeper plow- ing will make the farm larger without changing its boundaries, for it will increase the productive capacity of every acre.

Methods of Extermination, To give advice to farmers whose lands aro now over-run by this grass may as though pcldrag insult to ex- termination is no No spray- ing method for eradication of this !s economically possible while other crops are to be grown. Direct application Ealt areas have not proven satisfactory. On thorough- ly worked summer, fallow on which the broken root-stalks are making a vigorous growth, a thorough spraying with sodium urscnite solution at the rate to 5l) gallons of water seems to prove beneficial if applied three times during the growth and .if fallowed by thorough harrowing to start the remaining mipoisoned pieces into growth. (In using sodium nrscn.jte it should be re- membered that the solution is a strong arsenic poison and the sprayer should be so handled that the spray does not blow into the face of the operator so as to be inhaled.) B What To Do. (1) If in small patches up-root '-in dry hot weather a'nd 'as far as possible remove all underground slems. Vis- It the area once every eight or ten days and remove every apparent spear of grass with the attached under- ground stem. (2) Or. cut off in July and cover with tar paper so as to quite exclude the light. Allow the paper to remain there through July and August, then plow (3) Or. cut off closely In July and cover deeply with straw or manure.

He Is to bo connected with another iimlcrtnklng. Mis successor not. been appointed.1 Visit the areas often. Dig up any scattering plants not covered. (A) If in Inrge areas, mow oft when in blossom, break the sod shallow fnot to exceed two inches) In mid-July. Back-set in mid-August at. a depth but slightly deeper than before. Then disc and harrow thoroughly the fall, never allowing any green -teiivcs1 to show. Then plow deeply in the lute ffill. Plant a cultivated crop the fol- lowing season and follow the culti; valor with a lioeman who looks for every spo.nr of the grass. Or, after thoroughly preparing for the seed bed in the spring give it a heavy seeding of Gorman millet, say, two to two and! one half pecks of good seed, preferably sown broadcast. Sow the millet late in Hay. At no time during this pro- cess of tieid preparation should fhi quack-grass be allowed to show green and it possible the ground should nev- er be worked while wet. The drier the ground and hotter the weather the better the killi-ng effect of. the culti- vation. Any forage crop which will glvo a- dense and rapid growth may be sub itituted for millet though I think it has no equal unless it is fodder corn sown broadcast. Tho millet and fod- der corn is planted over the quack- grasa areas tlic second year for the purpose of smothering out any scat- tering quack-grass, plants which may be starting up from ths seeds or from the broken parts of tho underground stems after tlie thorough cultivation of the previous year. These crops grow, If properly seeded, in a dense mass, shutting off all root growth of Summary of Smothering Process (1) Mow in mid-July, in the hottest, dryest weather, before the seeds are mature. (2) Break shallow in mid-July. (3) Back-act in mid-August (4) Disc and harrow down at once. (5) Disc and harrow again as soon as any green leaves begin to show. (6) Disc and harrow again in Apr and May of the following year. (7) Put on the smother crop abou May 10th or 15th. (S) After the smother crop is cu close to tfie ground, disc and harrow thoroughly. Keep the ground -bar again until winter sets in, if a heav crop of millet or corn was produced your ground will, in most'cases, be ready for flax or other crop th< next spring. If in doubt as to whether all o the quack-grass has been smothere< out put on another smother crop tin second year, using a different ori< than the one used the previous year A heavy coat of barnyard manure applied previous to tho smother crop helps tlm latter to do tlie work. Propagators of Quack-grass Be careful not to use -straw for bod ding whicTi contains lots of quack grass seed. Better burn it unless yo1 intend to properly compost the man ure. Do not use any clover seed, slender wheat pi-ass seed, brome grass seed, oats or any other seed-a without a very careful grading and seed examination. Bo careful whose hay you buy to feed on your farm Raise your own feed. Quack-grass is a close relation to cultivated wheat. Its roots and under ground stems nro attacked by many of the wheat For this reas- on alone, you cannot to success- fully raise wheat upo ed with qimck-gniss.
