It is a very pleasant trip to the fellow who rides over those arid plains in a Great Northern palace car, when he knows lie lias a sure thing on getting back to Iowa. Had we an exile prison system, like Russia, for the benefit of the anarchists, I think that would be the direction in which we should ship the unfortunates. To an Iowa man, accustomed to see every good thing growing so heartily, the landscape of Montana is forbidding, ancl the poverty of the country's agricultural resources is enough to drive away such as could endure the look of desolation. Great Tails, on the Missouri, is the first place worth seeing west of St. Paul. The falls there are worth seeing, as are the big spring and smelter. Helena is more attractive in some ways than Butte,but anybody that wants to see mining should go to Butte. We stayed there but ten hours of daylight, but we had an old miner for a guide and saw all we wanted to. Butte is claimed to be the greatest mining camp in the world. Its mining district is seven miles long by three wide, and the development of its wealth of mineral ores is only just begun. Immense capital is centering in the Butte mines, and 6,000 men are already employed there. Its population of 25,000 has accumulated mainly in the past live years. It is beginning to be evjen a beautiful city, but in that respect is far behind Helena. Butte has every appearance of being a bad place, and the number of its female population rated very bad is estimated beyond that of its miners. The showing is such in this respect as to make the Helena people turn green witli envy and ask for another enumeration. People who never saw mountain scenery are delighted with what is to be seen between Great Palls and Butte, but of course grander scenery is to be found elsewhere. We left Minneapolis Monday night and arrived back the following Monday morning. It was too far to ride in that time with a view to seeing everything, but we had a very satisfactory trip and felt as well on arriving as when we set out. Bar- Grade sires never improve stock win proved that. The hay crop is not universally good. Cut corn to oke out. Irrigation in the dry latitudes will not make noticeable competition for many years if ever. Try corn f9ddor harvesting in different ways, nnd stick to what pleases best, hut be sure you try. Farmers who held corn hit it. It is wise to hold products below cost of raising, and wise to sell above cost. The Iowa delegation in the House did grandly in passing the lard bill. In the name of the counterfeited hog, we thank you, gentlemen. The British are fixing their cheeks to stop live cattle imports from here. They do not seem to realize that the growth of our nonproducers of food will soon require all we produce. We only study tariffs from the farmers' stnndpoint. If high duties are what competes with New England vegetables and Ohio wool and Louisiana rice are salutary, why put hides and substitutes for flax and hemp, on the free list, that grow in Iowa. The wild grasses of the world have been laid under tribute to grow wool. In 1860 the world grew 655,000,000 pounds. In 1880, 1,950,000,000. The growth of population will overtake the growth of wool as it is^overtaking the making of beef, in the Umte'd States. The loss of the farm boy is not so serious a question, as far as the farm is concerned, as the education of the farm girl away from farm sympathy. Well educated, as the term goes, farm girls aspire to be anybody's wife but farmer's boys. May be that is what ails the boys. Political farming may do for play spells, but see that the farm pays. If you have poor corn it is partly your fault. If you have bare pastures it's all your fault. If you have scrub animals you can not thrive. If you have everything poor nobody will take your plan of running the United States. |fty centa if he makes flrat rate goods. Eastern dairy inattuct&tB advise feeding dry meal to dairy cowa, We do not agree. We have acea loo many dairy oowa fed that way and other ways. We risk the assertion Jhat steamed or boiled cut hay or corn stalks and meal will give more milk than any other method of feeding these elements. We think ear corn feeding the most wasteful. Of course help and fuel are to bo considered. It will pay to try this the coming winter, where the dairyman has help and fuel at reasonable costs. Cull out the mares. Get rid of those with bad feet and defective legs. Like breeds like. Discard the undersized and objectionable. You are never rid of the results of a bad beginning. There is now closer discrimination among buyers. Competition is becoming closer. The west is asserting its power to breed the best and the cheapest horse, and good product is what sells well. We will have dearer feed for some time and poor things will not respond. Cull out and breed the best of the breed that you handle. If you have no really good mares get some by all means and never under any circum stances breed them to an inferior horse. Avoid grades for they will breed back to the ranch. Be sure of feet and legs and lungs and eating capacity. A good mare is a perpetual source of pleasure and profit, a poor one an unceasing source of disappointment, Iowa is to be the home and breeding ground of fine horses of all useful breeds. We have the best and the cheapest feed, a healthy climate and an intelligent people. But begin right.

It is not a grass for a rotative system of crops, but it is so valuable for late pasturing, winter and early spring grazing and for fresh grass soonest after dry spells that it deserves space on all farms. We are interested in governmental movements. A bill has passed the House requiring the sellers of lard to label it correctly. Spurious articles containing different per cents, of cotton seed oil are sent all over the world under the name of pure lard. The cotton seed of the south is controlled by a trust, and that trust has been robbing hog raisers. Let them sell their oil for what it is and we will sell our lard the same way. Dairymen are learning that the heifer calf should he fed for a cow and the steer calf for beef, and that starving the steer does not pay, while it is not necessary or wise to push heifers. Much of the profits of the dairy has been missed through potbellied calves. It will no more pay to stunt a calf than to stunt a colt. The dairyman really requires early maturing calves and this is only reached by generous feeding. The hot season has so hastened the ripening of oats that they are light. We may as well understand that ours is not a first rate climate for oats and if we would grow the best possible we must renew the vigor of our exhausted seed by getting it new as often as once in four or five years from some foreign country where oats grow heavier, regularly, than they do with us. The Nebraska farm papers say that a majority of the cornfields in that state will uot ear well, and the query is whether to cut or wait and see if the corn will improve. Nebraska joins the desert and most of it is really a part of it this year. Corn will keep in shock cut at any time if the shocks aro well put up. Where hay is scarce all the corn should be cut, and hay is scarce in many localities, although the story goes that hay is abundant every where. A perpetual vigilance is necessary to prevent rascals from stealing from the abundant west. If we can have fair play In this regard we will prosper. We have no»y reasonable rates ou our products to Chicago and other markets. There the rascality begins. Trusts seize upon most of them and make it pay. The Chicago packing houses have just had an expos ure by Congress that showed how they do their stealing. The oleomargarine business was bridled and the dairyman saved from ruin. Our hog is an important commercial factor and needs fair play. There is nothing more dangerous than for professional meu to meddle with farm illustrations. Talmage lately addressed a farm audience and illustrated a correct life by plowing straight furrows. "Set up a red flag at the side of a field end plow to it." Nobody can plow straight by holding on one object. A pole set at tho opposite side from where you enter, and another beyond that will enable you to make a straight furrow, if you know how to hold the -plow. The farmers laughed at Talinnge. And now, a word of advice to professionals addressing farmers. Tell them what you know, not what they know. You cauuot discuss what is in their minds, any more than they can entertain you on your profession. Talrnage could interest any audience on theology. A lawyer could on court affairs, a physician on the tendency of his art, but none of them are at home on farm matters. A very nice question arises in the minds of farmers who keep dairies and feed yards regarding the price of grain, beyond which it wifi not pay to feed. We doubt if it pays to feed corn in the ear above thirty cents. If the dairyman grinds and mixes with wet tiay he will find as much profit at forty cents. If ue has plenty of help and cheap fuel and steams or boils be will find profit still it We are coming to the frost point in Iowa weather and many are uneasy lest it catches the corn. It likely will overtake many fields in Iowa, as the northern counties of our state need an average season to ripen corn ahead of the frost. All danger of this kind can be avoided, and when wo get our crops properly arranged there will be very little, if any, danger. We should look to our pasture land for corn. Plowing should be done In September and in early October. Sooner than this would be better, but other farm work prevents it. The sod should be broken up at least six inches, so as to give enough mellow ground. Deep fall plowing of sod well cultivated stands the drouth best. We do not advise deep spring plowing for corn on stubble land. Corn can be planted early in May on well prepared sod ground and it will get ripe from twenty to thirty days sooner than ou stubble land or on any old grained land. This is the surest way to get a big corn crop and it is the surest way to get it ripe before frost. It is the only sensible way to grow corn and it is the only certain way to keep the land in good heart. Some philosophers say that sooner or later our lands will become sterile unless we put back something to replace the sale of what goes into meats and dairy products. We have farmed for thirty five years in Iowa and our lands grow greater crops of all kinds than when they were broken up from the virgin prairie. So we rest easy on that score. The frost overtakes corn in September where it prows on lands from which grains have been s'jld and which have not been recuperated in pasture, or on lands not well cultivated, or planted too late, or planted with corn too late for the latitude. BKEEIJING ANIMALS. There is a disposition to get flue stock of all kinds too fat. Buyers like to see beauty, ancl fat hides defects. In early days, when speculators handled fine stock many females were made barren by being fattened with heating feeds. Now, that fine stock is being bred by farmers, where the families speak for the individual, the buyer should not require fat. Plenty of good grass in summer will keep females in good health fat enough, if they have been well wintered. We shun animals fattened up for sales, having paid dearly for the experience. Our stock in Iowa, on the other hand, should all be in good order. Our feed is cheap and plenty, and poverty in stock deteriorates them. We should have our animals in fine condition in the fall, off grass alone. We urge breeders for their future good name to consider this. They know how to injure by oil meal and corn meal fed freely to mature females. They also know how to have stock in good breeding condition and in good health, and suited in some measure to the average buyer. BEAK GKAISf'8 DEMANDS. High priced corn can not be fed profit ably to stock that does not sell for the best prices. It will pay to feed dear corn to a good cow if so prepared that she can get all the gcod out of it. It will pay to feed dear corn to export steers if it is economically fed. It will not pay at all to feed forty or fifty cent corn to low selling beef cattle. It will pay to feed dear corn to growing colts that will sell for good prices for any purpose. But it will not pay to feed it to low selling plugs of any breed. So cull out the worthless ancl give your corn to that which will give you sure returns. There is no doubt but that good dairy products and good meats will sell as high as to correspond with the price of the grain that makes them. Dear corn demands revolution in feeding or there will be money lost. The farm needs all the grain possible fed on it. The tertp- tation that comes to the owners of poor animals to sell grain ut big prices is very great. But that only brings poverty to the farm. Dear grain compels improvement in stock aud in methods of feeding. COKN !FOI>1>KU. The season is at hand for corn cutting. There is controversy about methods. Some insist, vociferously, that it must be soured in a tight box called a silo, others protest that corn cutting is all foolishness, and still mauy men cut corn year by year, and put it in shocks and feed it out on frozen ground to stock, and we notice that such men thrive. We advise saving the corn in green condition for fodder. If you are a disciple of the silo, fill it up. i ou can devote more of your land to pasture, and want of plenty of good pasture is a great want in Iowa. So fill your silo. If you use your fodder dry we suggest that you take the ten days foi; cutting that are between ripe corn and ripe fctalks and save the fodder. We think shocks should be large, 100 hills to 144 hills. We would never use gallows or any device to stand up the beginning of a shock. Begin on the ground, on a hill, Jay down an armful of fodder and the next crosswaya and build up the shock solid, so that no snow can get in. This will save the fodder green, and not have all the wind whistle through it, making it as dry as powder. Such shocks need little tying, but tie them. After this stage you can do one of many ways. The steer feeder hauls some only as he wants to feed, or he hauls home to stack up and feed ear» and all, following up with hogs asi scavengers. The dairyman can not conveniently (Jo this. He should cut all the fodder with a machine of some kind and then be can mix with meal and make cut feed, or steam it and the meal or noil it and the meal for bis dairy cpwe. Toere are three processes contending /of Btipremftcyi One is the souflag fctecesfl by the silo. Ita ad' vocatea are very confident, and hardly listen to the other sides. The next ia the New England plan of mixing cut, moistened fodder with meal. The third ia atestnliitfor boiling fodder and meal together. Time will tell which pays best. We favor warm houses for dairy cows with warm food. Dear corn, thla year, will justify experiments In all these ways. Ear corn we consider utterly out of the question for a dairy cow. Ear corn ia the feed of the open yard, of the straw stack shelter, of pioneer life, of twenty cents a bushel corn. While we feed It that way, the eas.t will buy, compete and make profits. We do not say that there la no profit in feeding forty or fifty cent corn to steers in the ear In an open yard, where hoge follow, but we doubt it. We are positive it will not pay the dairyman. But be that as It may, U does pay the open yard ear corn feeder better to feed shock fodder that way than not to cut his fodder at all, and rob the pastures to cut hay. We have much to unlearn, much that the large land owners have taught Us. They are rich enough generally to go as they please. Quarter section and eighty acre farmers must economize and apply all plant growth to summering or wintering stock, and standing, withering corn stalks must vanish from small farms. They must be cut in season and take the place of the hay that should be added to the pasture, so that we can graze nine months in the twelve.

THEO. F. BARNES, Lincoln, Neb. Willis Hallock, Afft. at Algoua. ECONOMIC FKKDING. The world feeds our corn, but not as we feed it. The economic New Englander grinds it and mixes it with cut hay, always, for horses and cattle. The Europeans boil it or steam it and get more out of It that way. We feed it mostly in the ear and expect the hogs to act as scavengers, and pick up all wastage. Our reason for feeding this way is clear help and cheap corn, and the reason has been good But a shrinkage of 800,000,000 in the crop, if not more, will introduce new factors into the feeding problem. Corn will bo scarce on many Iowa farms, where full stocks of milch cows are kept, with full compliments of hogs, horses, and feeding steers. Corn must be fed economically, or the farmer must buy. It may have been economy to heave out seventeen cent corn upon the ground, It will not be economy to throw around fifty cent corn. We must make the most of it. When people east of us pay a dollar a hundred for our corn they find it good economy to take it to the grist mills, and give a snventh or an eighth to have it ground. We must go in that direction. We have no grist mills in reach, in most cases. We can improvise. The old fashioned giant corn and cob mill is a step in the right direction of economic feeding and the cheapest step. Corn cob meal mixed with cut hay or straw, or corn fodder, will make rations that the dairy cow or feeding steer can get the good of. All will return from the stomach to be cud- ded and put in shape to be assimilated by the system of the animal. We know this to be the case, because, we lived on a Connecticut farm and saw it tried repeatedly. The horses would fall away in flesh, and the cow would promptly shrink in milk when they got ear corn instead of cut bay and meal. A few minutes will do for cutting hay enough for twenty cows. Have a large, shallow box in the stable to cut and mix in. A few pails of water will moisten the hay so that it will hold the meal. Once get the folks at it, and it is not much extra work. Two horses and a man will grind one hundred bushels of ears or shelled corn easily in a day. We admit that grinding small with burs is better, but that means a grist mill convenient,«or buying the outfit. Help is not scarce in winter, and this plan is practical. We do it all the time for some of our stock, and propose to feed more corn that way this winter, for purely economic reasons. We must not waste this short corn crop, if we would thrive. We think there is slack enough in our methods to take up to make this crop in Iowa go as far as our greater crops of the past wasted. We particularly urge upon dairymen to grind and mix with cut hay, We would be glad to hear of some of them boiling or steaming, and have them report. This is not new either in Iowa. We remember a farmer a few years ago who ground and boiled his grain foi his dairy cows, who had very fine results. He had plenty of family help to do it. High prices for grain justify experiments. We are persuaded that improved methods will result from the present shortage of grain, that will stay with us. Plowing Wanted.
