Under no circumstances should tho laud bo 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 discing, a planlc should be used to level the laud. ''If It is necessary to disk deeply to cover trash, as is sometimes true of corn laud, a roller should be used to compact tho seed bed.

Tho plan is to hold two meet tigs in each magisterial district at night These meetings to bo located by the magistrates. The magistrate of each district will ride two days and nights with County Agent Spcnce and help linn with the meetings and daily visits to farmers. Government pledge books for wheat and the Red, White, and Blue cards will bo at each meeting for the farmers to sign. Every section of Rockcastle County will have a meeting held for the purpose of discussing Kentucky Wheal. Sheep, and Dog Law in September. All farmers arc ask to read the following article Directions For Growing Wheat Directions for Growing Wheat. Seed and Varieties. The varieties of wheat general ly grown in Kentucky are the beat for this State. These are Fultz, a smooth, white chaff vari ety: Carroll's Prolitic, having a smooth head with red chaff; Ful- caster, a bearded variety, Medi .Fultz, d terranean, or Poole and Harvest King. If necessary to buy seed, one of these varieties should bo chos en, and if possible the seed should be bought in the immediate locality. Homo grown seed is just as good as .Northern seed if reasonably clean and puro. No farmei can afford to buy enough high priced seed from a distance to plant his cntiro crop, and pay freight charges in addition, just to have absolutely ptfro seed. A moderate adtnixturo of other varieties will not decrease the yield. The important thing is to have seed f reo" from rye, cheat, and especially cockle and onions Seed wheat should be cleaned in order to remove light (shrunk en grains, dirt and other impurities. There is no advantage in screening out small grains if thoy aro plump. SMUT TREATMENT. Stinking smut has caused widespread loss in Kentucky this year. It is practically impossible to buy b'eed that is entirely free from it. Consequently, not a bushel of wheat should bo planted this fall without first treating it for smut. The treatment is easily given, is very effective aud it e lias largely supplanted tho treatment. It is applied as follows: Spread tho wheat out on a floor or clean canvas aud sprinkle until thoroughly wet with a solution made by adding one pound of formaldehydo to a barrel (50 gallons) of wator. Thon shovel into a heap and cover with canvas or sacks foi a few hours. Spread aud dry to sow. FERTILIZING W.HEAT. .No fertilizers should bo used in tho , Central Bluogruss Mictions this fall. In the feitilizor tests conducted by tho Experiment Station, a prolitablo increase has never been obtained on wheat, in tho Central Bluegrass section, by tho use ot any kind of commercial fertilizer at sowing time. Everywhere outside of tho' Bluegrass section a fortili.or which supplies phosphorus only should be used. No farmer can afford to use commercial nitrogen and potash at present price, oven if they give some increase which Is outirely unlikely Acid phosphate, steamed bono meal, or basic slag supply phosphorus. Two hundred pounds per aero of one of these should, bo used on every aero ot wheat sown in the State this fall outside of tho Bluegrass region.
