Ruaelan Wheat Seed for Oklahoma
Guthrie. Okla.—One thousand bush-
els of the finest seed wheat procurable
tor . Oklahoma planting, has been
bought by the state board of agricul-
ture, and Is being distributed among
Oklahoma fanners at cost price, plus
freight charges. The wheat is of an
Improved Russian variety, and com-
monly known as Turkey red. It Is be-
ing eold to farmere in 6-bushel lots,
allowing about 175 farmers ^o make a
planting from which jiezt year's seed
may be secured for himself and neigh-
bors. One hundred bushels of the
shipment will be reserved for planting
on the state penitentiary farm this
fall. The yield from this planting
should be sufficient to provide a Urge
amount of seed for distribution next
year by the state. The action of the
board In this matter,-Is to line with
the policy adopted by aoms of the
Oklahoma railroads to encourage the
raising of a better grade of wheat,
than haa heretofore been the case, with
the ultimate result, that millions will
be added to the annual value of the
Oklahoma wheat crop.
