C. Bunstine Writes on Interesting
The following, from the Oklahoma
Farm Journal, was written by S. C.
liunstlne, the well known farmer, who
resides west of Edmond:
These oats have done well at the
Oklahoma Experiment Station; they
also give good results in Kansas, Illi-
nois and Iowa. 1 wish to give my ex-
perience with them under somewhat
better than average farm conditions.
Three years ago 1 received two
bushels of these yellow oats from the
Griswold Seed Company of Nebraska.
These were sown i.11 better ground
than that seeded to the Texas Bed
variety. The latter surpassed them
both In quantity and quality. The
grain was light and the straw was
lodged much worse than the Ked.
The following year 1 sowed a field
of twenty acres; one-half to each,
llut the green bugs licked the platter
clean, and never reported which tast-
ed best. Last year, 1 had this field In
oats again, six acres of the Kherson.
This time it rained so everlastingly
that I never got a straw cut. How-
ever, the yellow oats were again very
I ght, and they were blown flat while
the lied stood fairly erect. Plowed
them all under in September, har-
rowed twice and got a fine stand
They were six inches high when the
j firBt two cold spells killed the Kher-
: n deader'n a doornail, the Ked still
shows plenty of life.
It's singular than an oats originated
In such a cold country as Russia can't
withstand as great a degree of cold
as one whose native habitat is Texas.
All Oklahoma farmers may sow Kher-
son oats that want to, but 1 think 1
know when I've had enough. It s my
opinion that it'll be a long time be-
fore a variety will be found that will
give better returns In the southwest
than 'the Texas Red.
I've experimented with new kinda
of grains, fruits, and vegetables for
more than thirty years, but It has
never added thirty cents to my bank
account, and sometimes 1 "resoloot"
to let the "other fellow" do the expert-
atlng hereafter. But when 1 read
the grandiloquent description In seed
catalogs, and the wonderful claims
made in seed corn ads, I'm almost (If
not entirely) persuaded to "try-er"
again. And tills brings me to
The Seed Corn Question.
The value of good seed corn needs
no argument. Hut while you are read
Just io more days before Easter, I have a full line the catalogs and ads bear m mind
of dress hats now on display. Come early while se-
lection is good.
LOUISE BRINKMAN, Milliner
that It's just as easy to raise 1000
bushels an acre—on paper—as one
bushel. And don't Imagine that you
can obtain a variety of corn even with
a name or pedigree a yard long that
you can "hog in*', then spend the ma-
jor portion of your time at the "swim-
mln* hole" or at the corner grocery
saving the government, and expect to
gather a whalen crop of corn In the
Leonldas Drake of Marlbor, S. C.,
in '87 raised a little more than 255
bushels of Grand seed corn on one
acre. He spent $166 for fertilizers.
Ordinarily, even at 50 cents a bushel
for corn, this would have been a los-
ing game. But as he received $5C-0 in
gold from the "American Agricultur-
ist" and a like amount from the State
of South Carolina, it was time and
money well spent.
It showed what could be done by
intensive farming. Don't go too far
from home for seed. Two years ago
I brought from Illinois some fine ears
of "Iowa Silver Mine"; the product
from these couldn't have been recog-
nized by their nearest kin. It more
nearly resembled sweet corn than the
parent stock. Get the .best you can to
start with and improve it by selection.
My time to select is when I'm gath-
ering the crop. If I find what I think
is an ideal ear o nas talk that suits
me, I put it in a box 1 have on the out-
side of the wagon bed. When shelling
I give it all a thorough weeding. 1
look for deep grains on a small cob.
Mr. Clore of Indiana, the champion
corn prize-taker of the country, says
good soil is the most important ele-
ment in growing a good crop. Yet
even the best soil won't produce a
paying crop without moisture, for all
plants must take the food hi the form
After plowing in good time at a
reasonable depth, preparing a good
vigorous seed, applying all the ma-
nure yo UC^n possibly scrape up, giv-
ing intelligent cultivation—deep at
first and shallower as the roots spread
—you are at the end of your string.
If it won't rain at all or wants to rain
all the time, you can't help it—not at
least 'till they show us how to help it
You say that these "farms" are a
"good thing", this is one time, John
Freld, when I can't ride with you. I've
talked with a number of our best farm-
ers and they arc all of my opinion
that they won't amount to a "tinkers
We have a demonstration farm at
Stillwater and the general government
is paying men to establish more. This
should be sufficient.
nut our solons seem to have been
seized with a sudden and burning
zeal for the farmers* welfare, when
only a little while ago. a lot of them
paraded the streets of Guthrie arrayed
in all manner of outlandish garb in
an effort to make farmers appear
ridiculous because someone suggested
one of that class on the board of 1
You say: "Some farmers must be J
shown." It is likely that these farm-
ers will go to the farm? Do the farm-
ers of Payne county take any more!
interest in the "farm" at Stillwater!
than those from other counties? And J
if the farmer won't go to the farm
will the demonstrator bring the farm
to them? Who is this wonderful gen-
ius to be that is to lead the farmers
out of the wilderness of Ignorance?
Is he to be gtven plenty of free help
on this "40-acre" farm and a good, fat
salary hung a few inches ahead of his
Put him single-handed on an "80"
or "160", let him contend (as the ordi-
nary must) with the elements, the id-
iosyncrasies of nature, insects, pests
galore and let's see what he'll show
That will be an altogether different
proposition from tilling a few plots;
about the size of those "9-foot sheets."
What we \s*!sh to be shown is how to '
make it rain when it doesn't want
to rain at all and how to stop it when j
its in the humor to rain all the time.
Then of tourie there'd be so much
produced, tin re would be no profitable
market at a'l. All our talking and
writing seems to be along the lines
of greater production, not a word is
said about a better price or greater
profit for the same amount of labor.
The fellows who farm under roof take
"Jt for granted 'that if twice or thrice 1
as much was produced as at present,
the price would still remain the same.
Perhaps, as you Bay, legislatures like
governments are "necessary evils."
At any rate it would have been a bless-
ing if some of the laws passed had
died a pre-natal death. Anyone who
dares say aught against the powers
that be is dubbed a "kicker "
If protesting against the useless
waste of the peoples' money, of in-
creasing the hardships of the already
tax-burdened masses, makes one a
member of the Kickers' Club, then I'm
"it". And if I pull a hornet's nest
down about my ears, I'll not hide un-
| der the bed 'till the "insects" have

than three times as much as they

I had just as good a sta'te and county
administration as we have here.
| Rut, 1 suspect that the fellows who
got turned against work because they
j "found a hair in It" and are now look
ing for soft snaps, must be provided
for and. lest some patriots be left In
the cold. I suggest that two more of-
ficials be api>ointed at a good salary
for each county; one to take an an-
' nual census of the tumble bugs, and
