It might be well to repeat here again Mr. W. H. Fairfield's excellent advice about keeping the wheat that was cut before the frost on September In selecting a ram, it is necessary to keep the ideal sheep ever in mind; ideal in conformation, ideal in type, and ideal In utility. Size, type, vigor, masculinity, conformation and fleece are all important factors. For a pure- bred flock, breed characteristics are of consequence, "and a thorough knowledge of the'breed type is neces- sary in making such a choice. A grade flock demands attention to utility fac- tors in preference to mere fancy tea- tures, as for example, extraordinary wooling on the head and face, lack nf perfection of which, with some breeds is sufficient to destroy chances of win- ning with close competition in the show rings. ntd' female flowers are on separate plants and not all of the female flow- 31-s produce viable seeds. Neverthe- less tlie seeds are frequently hidden iwuy in straw and hay and are some- times present in grass and clover seed md in need oats. As each seed is equipped with a feathery plume, H. small patch ot thistle may serve to infest a whole neighborhood. Roots Must be Kilted The point that must be kept in mind .herefore, in fighting Canada thistles s that it is the than the ;ops. that must be killed. Simply cut- ting off the tons a few times (las the same effect as pruning an apple iree. But if tlie tops are cut oft deep and frequently, the root must eventually suffocate through lack of leaves. Bearing this in mlhu, uuy or tiiB following methods will be found effective. 1. suitable for one-half acre or more thoroughly in- fested land, from which little revenue could be expected anyway. Plow deep in the fall, exposing the roots to the Trost. Harrow in the spring to kill seedlings of annual weeds. Let the thistle grow until the first blossoms appear, (about June 1) or until there s danger of other weeds going to seed. Plow shallow and from then until frost ise disc harrow often enough to pre- thistle leaves from making over four inches of growth. If the thistles- jet over six inches high at any time tH the previous work will he undone. This applies, to all methods. Follow during second year with a cultivated crop giving a little extra cultivation and hoeing out individual thistles. Cut Crop Early 2. Partial grain fields or old meadows, cut the crop early for lay, if necessary, to prevent thistles rom seeding. Allow thistles to grow 'or four to six days tlie'u'plow and pro- ceed as in 1 for remainder of the sea- son. (2} For cultivated ground. Al-1 ow thistles to grow until- first spms appear. Plow shallow. :histles are about three inches' high, disc thoroughly and plant late smother crops, as below. 3. Smother of above. A good method on rich ground I'ut grass or grain early for hay as in J (I) above. Plow shallow four to six days later. Leave for four to six days more and disc thoroughly. Then sow smother crop buckwheat (4-5 peck J__, _, bTuaiJeast, fi-S pounds, millet, 3-4 peck) or fodder corn in check rows. After the crop is .off, keep thistles down by discing until frost.

United Grain Producers, Ltd TEMPORARY OFFICES: ROOM 1, MACOONALO BLOCK CANADA THISTLE GREAT NUIS ANCE; HOW TO CONTROL The unpopularity of Canada thistle is due largely to its unsightly appear- ance and exceedingly1 spiny leaves, and to its persistent resistance to extermi- nation. Under ordinary cropping sys- tems, and with reasonable care, the thistle is at worst a disagreeable nuis- ance. Generally speaking it does not injure the quality or quantity of farm products, excepting hay. a-? much as do quack-grass, wild onion, wild mus- tard and others; nor is it as destruc- tive to the grass in pastures and mead- ows as are n number of almost, insig- nificant little weeds whose very ex- istence is often unsuspected When left to itself, however the thistle will spread rapidly until in a jeais it will more or less completely occupy the land rendering it unfit for farming purposes and sharply depreciating its market vaiue. The soil upon which Canada thistles flourish is apt to be of good natural fertility, and it usu- ally pays to reclaim thistle-infected fields.
