COMPOSITION OF SCREENINGS Screenings from the terminal eleva- tors at Fort William and Port Ar- thur are composed oi shrunken and broken kernels of wheat, oats, hat ley and llax with a varying propor- tion of different, kinds oi weed seeds. Following is the analysis of a sam- ple representative of liOdu ions ol screenings from Hie 1812 crop as shipped "from different, periods to Un- ited Stales points sealpings ,17 pel- cent., succotash flax 7, buckwheat screenings IS, and black seeds -18 per rent. These are tlic ordinary com- mercial separations of screenings. The scalpings were about, (in per cent. small and .shrunken wheat, 25 per cent, other grains, 3 per cent, weed spcd.s ami 7 per cent, chaff, etc. Suc- cotash flax was dO per cent, (lax, 40 per cent, broken wheat, per cent. weed seeds, !n per cent, chaff and dust.. Buckwheat screenings were SS per cent, wild buckwheat, per cent, grains (mostly cracked 9 per cent, weed seeiis, and -1 per cent, chal't, etc. Black seeds were lamb's quarters per cent., tnmh- ling mustard 4, wild mustard 3.5, dust 33.5 per cent. Sometimes only two separations are made, scaipings and hlack seeds.' If th? black seeds are removed from screenings, the remainder comprising about per cent, of the whole is a valuable feed for live stock. MR. WHITMHN JtiT4 Ksplanadc Avenue, Montreal.
