Department of Forestry, Horticulture and Botany
This bulletin of the Dakota Experiment Station is simply a midsummer report of progress and an announcement to the farmers of the Territory of the experiments that are receiving attention. When the season closes, bulletins will be issued stating in detail the methods of the experiments, and so far as possible all reliable results. Most of the experiments are for the purpose of throwing light upon the relations of our climate to various kinds of cereals, forage crops, fruits and garden vegetables. Any farmer in the territory who desires the bulletins of the station can have them mailed free to him by sending in his address. The press of the territory can do a favor to the station and to the people by giving this notice wide publicity. Correspondence is also invited upon any question relating to farm interests. Questions relating to farm crops or stock should be addressed to Professor Foster; questions relating to tree culture or to gardening should be addressed to Professor Keffer; questions relating to insects should be addressed to Dr. Orcutt questions concerning the chemical composition of soils or waters should be addressed to Professor Shepard, and questions about the diseases of animals and their treatment should be addressed to Dr. Alloway,-all at Brookings, Dakota.
