The mayor has for weeks publish-
ed an order relating to the cutting
of weeds, but it has little effect, as
there are many patches of weeds in
all parts of the city. Nearly every
vacant lot Is a weed patch and many
occupied places are guilty of harbor-
ing weeds. It is a necessity that
the weeds shou’d be kept cut down at
this season of the year. Cut your
weeds and save the city officers the
trouble of arresting you and fining
you for a violation of a city ordi-
nance. Cut them today.
In spite of the green bug scare In
Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas, there
will be the allotted acreage sown to
winter wheat this fall. Indeed, it
need not be surprising if the acreage
would be Increased, as there are many
fields that failed to produce a crop of
any kind after Insect attacks ard
these have already been -plowed in
preparation of the land for winter
However, in the maic, winter wheat
will go in on land that has either
grown wheat this year or some of the
small cereals—possibly oats mainly.
The principles of cultivation and the
methods to be used in preparing lands
for winter wheat are simple, but tbeir
very simplicity sometimes leads men
Early plowing Is the item of first
importance. Whether the soil he
hard and dry or, on the other hand,
mellow and moist, the plowing should
be started just as soon as the crop Is
removed. The great advantage ’n
early plowing Is that it prevents the
escape of moisture and induces its
accumulation In the furrow slices a
it is brought up by the soil capillary
forces. Then again, It the land I.
plowed shallow a better opportunity
is given to work the seed bed into
shape. One may then take advantage
of July and August showers and
break the clods while they are mois-
tened. It must be remembered that
plowing for winter wheat need not be
deep; In fact, it is better to plow
shallow because roots are less liable
to heave out In this case than if there
Is a loosened seed bed to a depth ot
six or seven inches.
An occasional barrowing of the sur
face at intervals of a week or ten
days Is to be preferred to the plan of
putting all the labor on the soil at
one time. This conserves the mois-
ture and compacts the soil, while, of
course, It also fines the surface No
man should get discouraged if it re-
quires four, five or even six harrow-
Ings to get the seed bed firm, because
under ordinary circumstances this
labor will be more than paid for in
the Increased return*.

measure winter wheat requires a seed
bed very much like alfalfa. In that
case the aim is to get the soil firm so
that the roots may be held In place
against the fore s that are exerted
In severe weather. It is not a diffi
cult matter to understand how roots
may be heaved out by the freezing
and thawing process much more read-
iiy from a spongy soil than from one
that is firm Winter wheat to a large
extent needs the same conditions.
We have always contended that the
right 1- ind of care taken in preptrlng
the seed bed, as compared with the
ordinary method, will Increase the
yield anywhere from five to ten bush-
els per acre We have known men
who have been fixed in their wavs
about getting the winter seed bed
firm and fine who ha ve averaged, over
their entire wheat acreage, better
than forty bushels per acre for a
series of years. These men never
take chances, but make It a point to
get the h> d rig lit, ot her wisest he crop
is not .own.
Regarding the matter of varieties
it pays any man to keep in close
touch with Ills experiment station. If
he Is not an experienced wheat grow-
er, and therefore using his own seed
from year to year, the Information
received from the station may do
much io make the crop sure. In a
general way, we adyise men to take
up nrwthiDgs slowly, remembeiing
that ar.y variety that hasylelded well
in a given localiiy for a series of
years is likely to continue to yield
well In the future.
There Is one thing more that wt de-
sire to add, namely, that It always
pays to look into the methods em-
ployed by the most successful wheat
growers in one’s own county. That is
a good place, also, to pick up inform-
ation about varieties. There Isn’t a
county In the winter wheat belt but
what has Its specialists—men who
have mastered the situation and
these, we repeat, the amatei r can
well afford to Imitate.—Farmer and
