Vnlue to Average Farmer Few Illustrations could demonstrate so effectually the value of live slock to tho average farmer, snys tho Grain Growers' GuMo. No one pretends to say that these figures hold true in all cases, because a. number of other Im- portant factors must bo considered. But they do holii true In a vast num- or, as has long been thought tho na- ture mid complete cycle, they are wind-blown to tho barberry bush, on tho loaves of which they germinate and rapidly .develop, producing an orange-colored spore called the cluster cup stage. From tho millions of spores ber ami" they show d of resul distinctly the trend lts from keeping more livestock.

Here lies jn tjle case Of dairy stock cowfi; milk- ing during the winter frequently have been found more profitable than milk- under "consideration today. Here lies the big work for the dairy forces to grapple with. Let us briefly analyze the situation. The majority of dairy farmers are 'jot raising crops which will yield the larg- est amount of feed nutrients per acre or are best adapted for making good rations. Timothy hay Is still raised in large quantities ami its yield is about IVi tons per acre. In this amount of timothy hay will be found of which S4 Ibs. are protein. Land that will yield IV- tons of timothy hay will produce 3 tons of alfalfa hay and in 3 tons of alfalfa hay there are 313- Ibs. of digestible nutrients, of which 666 Ibs. are protein. It is not neces- sary to point out the advantage of growing alfalfa instead of timothy, for the figures" speak for themselves. i ADVANTAGE OF LIVESTOCK FOR LABOR SAVING I A. farm survev of over sixty farms in 'ing the necessity for of very same of The adjoining states shows in the farmer's own family) but.

INVESTIGATION OF RED AND BLACK that come from these clusters on.tho barberry, there starts the red rust proper 'on wheat uud other cereals. Tho objection to this supposedly nor- mal cycle is-Uhal wheat rust is bad in Australia where there is no bar- berry stage. Even in western Cana- da there is very little barlmrry, and certainly not enough to harbor the disease to the extent to which -it some- times occurs. Sultry Days Two years ago during tho three or four 'sultry days following n heavy rain on August 4 there developed iwuiiw .nut" i.........--- i enormous amount of wheat rust. The ing during the summer and largely on comjjttons were favorable and tho rust account of the better use of labor. Tne There is a danger of slim- fnr iiasture ]ar conditions this yea. Tho spores, the omnipresent simply waiting suitable conditions for development. As occur- red 2 years ago, the early sown wheat was sufficiently developed as not_ to be injured by the rust on August a to S whereas wheat sown late was con- siderably damaged; and a rust at this time would do more harm than a frost it would be more general and affect The annual loss is said to exceed Precautions There are no means to eradicate it, but there are some precautions which tend to lessen its baneful effect, such stubble, wild grass and dead hay which serve to harbor the black rust stage and assist in winter- sowing and good cultiva- to cive strong healthy plants that ie a strong ueiciiuiiimt, i'011 Lu man who takes advantage i will resist the disease. .......--1 the more resistant var- ieties Fife wheat-is very susceptible to rust; Marquis slightly freer from if Fife or Minnesota 163. 10 per cent, resistant; Minnesota 1SS, correspond- ing- to our Marquis. 30 per cent, re- utllization of more land for pasture and hay necessary with more livestock reduces cultivation ami harvesting ex- penses.

In tiar.eil the destruction of a barberry hedge, the same must be destroyed and compensation given. We are finding now. however, that rust can'; be had in Ontario in spite of the barberry, as it is in the west, and I believe that unconsciously the burn- in- of the stubble, thought to be so wasteful, is n very great factor in lessening rust.
