A gi- gantic head it was! Fully four in- ches long with its rough bearding, and broftd in proportion. Packing the head carefully away, the old.'man brought it back with him to his ranch at Juliaetta, Ida- ho.i Not a word did he say to his neighbors of his find. Whether it was wild wheat or not he could not .say. Perhaps some wild bird had filled its crop-with the brains of an unknown region, where it grew native, and coining to Alaska deposited thc seed in a fertile spot. And yet it was only curiosity that moved Abraham Adams. He never dreamed of his find being of any value except as an experiment for his own pleasure. In the fall of 1904 ilr.
