PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Ml frat!! MT. VERNON, Signal on all ESTABLISHFD J887 VOLUME XXXI ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, KY., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 1918 per acre pays better than five. Beware of seedsmen who advertise varieties of wheat which requires a seeding of only a peck or two per acre. There is ab solutely no variety of wheat that gives as profitable yields at this rate as at 5 to 6 pecks per acre. Probably the most satisfactory drill is the single disk type that puts the drill rows 7 or 8 inches apart. Experiments have shown no advantages in having the rows closer than this. The much advertised 4 inch drills give no better yields than the ordinary type, if indeed as good. Wheat should never be sown deeper than necessary to get the seed in moist soil and perfectly covered. Many poor stands of wheat are due to covering unnecessarily deep, and wide spaces between the drill rounds. Poor drilling frequently contributes considerably to low yield. July I9I8. Robt. F.

County Agent, Spence, assisted by the Magistrates atjd officers of Farmers Clubs of Rockcastle Count will conduct a Wheat and Sheep Campaign, beginning September i7. The plan is to hold two meet ngs in each magisterial district at night These meetings to be located by the magistrates. The magistrate of each district will ride two days and nights with County Agent Spence and help him with the meetings and daily visits to farmers. Government pledge books for wheat and the Red, White, and Blue cards will be at each meeting for the farmers to sign. Every section of Rockcastle County will have a meeting held for the purpose of discussing Wheat. Sheep, and Kentucky Dog Law in Septembtr. All farmers are ask to read the following article Directions For Growing Wheat Directions for Growing Wheat. Seed and Varieties. The varieties of wheat generally grown in Kentucky are the best for this State. These are Fultz, a smooth, white chaff variety; CurrelPs Proline, having a smooth head with red chaff; Ful caster, a bearded variety, Mediterranean, or Four-rowe- d Fultz, Poole and Harvest King. If necessary to buy seed, one of these varieties should be chosen, and if possible the seed should be bought in the immediate locality. Home grown seed is just as good as Northern seed if reasonably clean and pure. No farmer cad afford to buy enough high priced seed from a distance to plant his entire crop, and pay freight charges in addition, just to have absolutely pure seed. A moderate admixture of other varieties will not decrease the yield. The important thing is to have seed free from rye, cheat, and especially cockle and onions Seed wheat should be cleaned in order to remove light Jshrunl: en grains, dirt and other impurities. There is no advantage in screening out small grains if they are plump. 1918, be at my office over the store of U. G.

Ground limestone used in connection with phosphorus is certain to be profitable provided it can be obtained at a reasonable price. PREPARATION OF THE SEED BED Wheat grows best in a firm seed bed. Under no circumstances should the land be plowed when wheat follows corn, tobacco, cowpeas, soy beans or any cultivated crop. The best preparation is a 'light disking to cover trash and loosen up enough soil to cover the seed. After disK-ing- , a plank should be used to level the land. If it is necessary to disk deeply to cover trash, as is sometimes true of corn land, a roller should be used to compact the seed bed. When land is plowed, the plow ing should be done as early as the removal of the preceding crop permits, in order that the seed bed may be gotten firm. The later the plowing is done the greater the necesssity for thore working, especially rolling. JWith-ou- t any exception it pays to prepare a seed bed some time beiore sowing the seed if it can possibly be done. use of lime phosphorus ilitfe s"V SlhVW THE BYRNE OPTICAL SERVICE Eyes Tesf ed 18 Years Experience.

"I'm mighty glad you came, Uncle Dan. I want to talk to you about the war. We have just put military training in our township high school, but ,we had a hard time to do it. The Joneses and the Greggs objected. They said the war wouldn't come over here, (iri'iidiiia Jones said: 'They ain't no use to worrit, it will soon blow over.' Well, we put the training in just the same. You orter heard Judge Brow- nell, the president of the school board, do the slackers up. He said unless we take off our coats and go to it, Germany may yet win, and if she does, she will take over the great British fleet M a war trophy and compel us to do wli.il ever she wants to ; that she could m:ike us pay all the cost of the war; tin kaiser could tax us as he pleased am that we couldn't help ourselves.
