TRIUMPHS OF DRY FARMING.
A Thick Blanket at Dust Protects
the Moist Earth Below.
"The Palouse country is a pan
orama of rolling hills," checkered
with sagebrush and great wheat
field's. Close to those wastes
of ourious grayish . tint," says a
writer in the National Magazine,
"are rich fields covered with the
thickest stand of wheat I ever saw.
"The soil seems to have perform
ed a miracle In producing this lav
ish wealth, but those standing crops
are an indisputable proof of the tri
umph of dry farming. The fields
are harvested only every second
year, and always ploughed very deep
ly, the soli being thoroughly pulver
ized in the odd years.
"A thick blanket of dust covers
the earth good fairy in disguise,
for- that dust blanket protects the
ground and preserves the moisture
of the winter snows. Although very
little rain falls during the growing
season, this stored up moisture is
sufficient nourishment for the pro
duction of a magnificent crop; the
soil disappears to have a volcanic
ash that needs only seed and mois
ture to bear abundantly.
"In raising wheat here, loss is oc
casioned from the action of wind
storms, which blows off the dust
blanket and exposes the seed, so
every effort Is made to keep the
blanket on. Instead of sowing two
bushels of seed to the acre, as in
the East, one bushel is hero suffi
cient. The grain is cut by headers
and combination harvesters and
threshers, which also sack It right
In the field.
"There may be some waste from
overripe grain, but this method
saves the cost of stacking and shock
ing, and In some cases reseeds the
ground, resulting in a crop of young
wheat very valuable for forage.
This wheat grass has the same effect
as clover in fertilizing and the green
fields add to the attractiveness of
the landscape, standing side by side
with fields of yellow wheat and
black dust of summer fallowed
tracts, with a touch of sagebrush now
and then for contrast.
"When tho sturdy German farm
ers from California first experiment
ed in this country they Incurred a
great deal of ridicule. Now those
very methods are producing thirty
to forty bushels an acre, while the
maximum cost of cultivation an acre
Is 5. Such facts indicate why the
Western farmers are able to winter
In California or other favorite Amer
lean pleasure resorts, run automo
biles, or even tour Europe and win
ter on the Riviera."
