Queries will be answered. Address to the Editor, Jiimes Wilson, Truer, lown,) ALGONA, IOWA, SEPT. 17, 1890. French farmers "syndicates." call their associations Drouth causes a heavy decrease in the India wheat crop. . Gentlemen of the United States Senate, pass the House lard hill. The French papers admit that their country is in the wrong in prohibiting American pork. The value of the future dairy will be determined by the fat in the milk and not by the volume. A committee of Americans have been sent abroad to post up the English about American cattle. Poultry and eggs will be higher for two reasons: A duty on eggs, and dearer grains. So take care of the pullets. The sooner plowing is done the better. Where the ground is rather dry, the gang plow holds its share to the work. The balance of trade will not he kept in our favor next year with grains. It is high time to open the way for our meats. "Will some one tell us how much corn a hen eats when laying a dozen eggs, and what per cent, of her time is taken up in laying? , Nothing done at Washington pleases us so well as the disposition to retaliate on those foreign countries that discriminate against our meats. Drouth and high prices will help farmers who have crops to sell, but will injure those who have not. One will make headway, the other go back. .According to reports, the home market will absorb all northern products, except perhaps some meats. Short grain crops will curtail the amount of meats. The balance in trade with foreign countries was heavily in our favor last fiscal year, but we sold $150,000,000 worth of grain and brendstuffs. We will not sell much this coming year. What will make up the lack? Less imported goods. Our people are misled by the term "carpet wool." It is low grade, cheap wool. It grows on all sheep. The dirtier the sheep the more carpet wool; the older the sheep the more carpet wool—the very poorest breeds have the most of it. We grow much of it in the United States. The rains after such a hot period, will bring plenty of fall grazing, und where the grass is not eaten too close, we will have late gniziug. Many winter pastures have been called upon already. The finest butter and cheese should be made now, and stock will lay on flesh fast. W. L. DOUGLAS $3 SHOE Fine Calf anil Laced FOR GENTLEMEN. Waterproof Grain.

Field and Farm culls attention to the growth in the west of a class of American Sypsies. They roam in covered wagons, from one state to another; are on hand to take up homesteads, sell out, do nothing, raise rows, get pinched, be fed, and move to the newest settlement. An old team, a stub-tailed cow, a shot gun, a yellow dog are the signs. The hot winds require statesmanship to meet their consequences. Their effects will be far reaching. A Mr. Wood, in the Forum, showed logically that in twenty years we would have no grains to sell. The hot winds have brought that about now. National policies must operate to have less goods bought aud smaller bills to pay abroad, or pur gold will go abroad fast, and troops of difficulties will follow. Reciprocity is the rage of the day. It is high time we sold more from the shop, or bought Iftss from foreigners, during the coming year, as we will not have any grain to spare worth speaking of. Still, we suggest that th'e interest of western farmers be riot swapped off for the benefit of factory people. Western voters have stood up stoutly for factory people in the past. It will be un-neighborly to let in farm products free that compete with ours. While fodders will be scarce and dear this season, east and west of us, we will waste more than we use in Iowa. A ride through the state after feeding begins will prove this. There is a prevalent opin- , ion that corn stalks ripe are good feed. It is a mistake; and that straw blenched white is good feed, another mistake. The chemists have been all over this question. Stock will live on hazel brush and on basswood twigs. This is not farming. Of course put the cattle into the corn stalks and get what good there is in them, but they do not make money tliat way. The splendid soil of our state is making the most of the corn crop. It is filling well, and if it gets the usual length of season, of which there is every indication, the shortened crop will be good, as far as it can be, after such a scorching. We notice the difference between good culture and indifferent. On drained land in fine tilth and on old pastures, the yield will be up to the usual state average. This admonishes us to plant on our pasture lands. They should be plowed now. as soon as possible. Farmers who have not such lands to spare for corn growing should get them. Half of the farm should be in grass and seeding down should be as regular as the seasons. Congress has just added largely to the endowment of our farmer and mechanic colleges, to educate these classes. Complaint is heard that the boys do not follow farming. Some do from graduation and more will in time, but the girls; they do not take the farm into their future calculations. Poor families farm to live and rejoice in it. Wealthy families from all walks of life buy farms, and enjoy them. Our girls, of the second generation from the pioneer, where money has been made, flee from the farm. The filling full of professional and mercantile life, and the lessening of incomes there, •with better profits from well farmed,good Iowa lands will, we think, change this. At present the women who oau want city life. The home market will require nearly all our farm products this year, except meats. It is worth while to consider how ,to retain it. One abort crop has brought us to the point that increaatt of population would havo reached eventually. Ik will be somo time, even with average crops in future, before we Can sell much gram again. The retreat from the desert of tons of thousands of grain raisers will have a tendency to limit the volume of grain. Grain will be dearer abroad, ih tho manufacturing countries, and that will increase the cost of factory goods. Nothing has helped foreigners so to produce cheap shelf goods as cheap grain. Dearer grain and dearer fuel lessens the advantage? of foreign competitors. Our manufacturing industries will continue to grow, and they will steadily require more farm products. Our farms will not multiply, while good prices will increase all our crops. The home market is the farmer's reliance. Home demand fixes prices now. Grain comes back from Liverpool. We think progressive farmers are doing better thun those who sell grain and hold scrub cattle, but do not quite agree that the march of years has given the farmer all the advantage. Prices of somo things we buy are less than they were twenty years ago. A close inquiry into the farmer's taxt-s, direct and indirect, will show where he is caught. Many farmers who have full stocks of animals pay as much to the Chicago stock yards and the leaches about them, as their school tax'. Labor is as dear as iu war times. So is the time of the mechanic. Mills are out of fashion and it costs the price of two bushels of wheat to buy the flour of one, and of three bushels of oats to get the meal of one. Our roads are very expensive in time and money, and as lands rise iu value the rate of levy does not come down. Our state is getting many rich men who avoid the assessor, and debts contracted for lands where money was worth less have besn difficult to bandits with gold values. The extension of railways has .greatly increased the number of farms and the value of products. A change seems coming. The silver bill will help. The drouth will drive Out much dastern aud western competition that will stay out, The Ghicago stock yards are a villainous institution that will be looked to when more important, things get attention. Our meats have not had as much attention in the past from pur federa 1 law makers as old junk men's interests. Let farmers resolve to have these things remedied, and at the earliest possible day. Everybody knows we have good hog products. Let every farmer in the land ask bis representative to have France and Germany brought to time for excluding them, by shutting out their exports to us, and it will be done. Let us all ask that Stock over inter-state railways be not held at Chicago, and the remedy will come. Let us all demand that the milk stables in eastern cities be purged of lung plague, so that our cattle be not discriminated against in foreign markets, and it will be done. In fnct, let farmers ask evidently just things, and not fritter away their time, energy, money aud good name, by demanding what a majority of farmers will not agree to, like the sub treasury scheme, two per cent, government bonds, free trade, this fellow or that for some office, arid such humbugs. It is said, "farmers will never agree upon any one thing." We can all agree to drive tbieves from our hives oi' commerce. Let us do that. A FARMERS' COXGRESS. We have read the proceedings of the Farmers' Congress at Council Blufis, and with the exception of the work done by a few sensible men to prevent others from making a farce of the whole concern, we sec little to confimcnd. It may be that good will come from the meeting of men from different sections of the country. There was too much political undercurrent to permit real value to attach to it. The most profitable farm meetings we know of are those that gather for special purposes. Our breeders' meetings are valuable, because they confine themselves to discussing what pertains to tbe farm. The late congress at the Bluffs rambled back to the war times and ten years before. Party action was discussed with far less intelligence than tbe average country newspaper applies to affairs political. Cranks go to such places to air their hobbies, and nothing seems irrelevant. Our opinion about joint action by farmers is, that all discussion should be confined to something the times require. A meeting to wnndcr over political fields and tbresli over old straw stacks is time lost. Let the boys do (hat at debating societies. on most farms this year, so we would let the grain get hard. Whether the shacks stand where they are made ot are hauled to the bfttn, or to a yard, depends titiftn circumstances, Those who all sikte, put the fodder in at different stages of dryness. Those who • cut the fodder with a machine do the work before severe weather; and we think this the most economic way to feed corn fodder, where hay is valuable or scarce. The cattle and hog feeder hauls shocks generally as he wants them. We have many farmers who do not think it economical to cutcoru at all, but husk and let the stock get the fodder. This class is not compelled to use corn fodder, are generally largo land owners, and can go as they please in farming. The small farmers cannot afford to lose the fodder. More grass growing land can be used as pasture if the corn field is more relied on for winter feeding. We think this would be a wise disposal of a considerable part of land now used for hay. TILE DRAINING. Now that we have reached bettor prices for crops and condensed farm, products, the draining of wet lands can be consid eved by farmers who cannot invest money unless it makes returns. Few would drain land when it cost more to dry an acre of land than to buy a dry acre. Besides, the tales of boomers led us to believe that there was no limit to western lands and crops. When the home market is equal to the consumption of all our grains and most of our meats and dairy products and prices have dou bled for some grains, it is in order to look after the acres on the farm that are rich, wet and worthless. Tiling is the best way to dry land, and tile is now to be had at most points for less money than ever before in Iowa. Draining can not be done correctly by every tyro. It will pay every farmer who undertakes to drain, to read up on the subject, to visit those whose drains were made years ago on land similar to that in band still running unclogged. Many drains choke up and arc worthless. Much money has been thrown away by bad engineering, particularly where the fall is not decided. A main drain and spurs is better than parallel drains, unless the tile is carefully graded in size, as distance brings more water. Four feet deep is necessary to get full benefit from the drain. Tile cannot be laid to close. The water will go through the porous sides. Trees growing contiguous will fill the tile with roots. Shallow tile is reached by burrowing animals and by frost. Well drained land will grow crops in very unfavorable seasons, like the present. Well lain tile will last a life time. The farmer must study how to lay the tile, and can afford to trust nobody to superintend the operation, until he proves them. Tile must be clear of lime speck, must be perfectly sound and well burned, or it is lost time putting them down. Stock for Sale. Having sold my home farm.

Judy, Auctioneer. 40-51 WU1SKK WK MISS AND HIT IT. Some farmers have genius in one direction and others in other ways. One with taste for it raises fine horses, and makes it his leading department. He has cattle and bogs incidentally. Let him see to it that the departments he cares least for do not lose him money. Others have taste for tine cattle and make money with them, as anything pays in Iowa that gets proper attention. Let him see to it that the animals he cares least for do not lose him money, and while he is a good cattle man, that he is not decidedly in the rear of his neighbors in other respects. Some farmers are first rate hog managers. They think out all the best ways to make them pay. Let them be careful about neglecting cattle especially, as they are likely to do. Hogs eat no fodder worth speaking of, and the farm will run down for want of gra/ers and fodder eaters. Some farmers are good grain raisers. Let them see to it that they study how to consume all the grain on the farm and apply all the manures made in winter, to the corn fields or grass lands. The best paying feature of the farm for men in moderate circumstances is the dairy. Make the most of the cow's milk and the most of 'the calf. Let other departments revolve around her. The time is coming soon when the Iowa dairyman, with early maturing calves and a compliment of hogs and brood mares, a few mutton sheep, and a moderate supply of poultry will be the most independent farmer ou earth. Our observation is that losses come where we give leas!: attention and profit where we give most. We must learn of each other and by teaching in some each other. CUTTING COKN. We cannot agree with much of the ad vice that is given just now about cutting corn. Farmers arc invariably told to use a frame to begin the shock around, or tie hills together- We nave long ago stop ped doing either. Begin by laying down an armful on a bill, and build around it so as to have a solid shock. Whenever i shock has a hollow in the center it wil fill with snow, if the shock stands ou long enough. The hollow shock dries out the fodder too much. Advice is also given tr> put too little corn in the shocks Put in 100 hills at least and tie the tops when they are cut. It is no use to cu corn after the fodder is white. It the corn stalk is cut before the corn is ban the grain will shrink. But when cut too soon the stalks will make better fodder. Corn will b* more valuable than, fodder From many hundred rheumatics comes Ihe welcome news that -the Infallible Rheumatism Remedy is the best they ev- used, for rheumatism of all kinds.

This vender of corn hag occupied this place for years, and knows in which direction every car will turn as wett as the switchman who turns the Lincoln avenue cars up Centre street. Those who have watched a street car as ifc rounds a curve have noticed how the front platform runs ahead, as though the car was going to continue in tho same direction, and then gives a sudden lurch and whirls around the curve. At the corner of Center and Clark the appearance to those who do not happen to know the cars is that all north bound trains continue up Clark street. As the cars near the corner it is the custom of this popcorn man to board all the trains in the endeavor to dispose o2 his buttered grain. Sunday opening as the north bound g^ip came thundering up Clark street Mr. Popcorn man placed himself, with his arms full.of merchandise, right in the center of the Clark street track. As tho train came nearer and nearer he never moved. On it came, and a stranger in the crowd which thronged the entrance of the park became desperate. Dashing in front of the grip car he wildly seized the astonished popcorn man by the nebk and twirled him to what he thought a place of safety. The popcorn flew like a million grasshoppers, and the old man swore like a trooper. Anybody who has heard the heartless laugh of a street crowd can get an idea of the roar of merriment that went up as the situation dawned upon the bystanders. But the most amusing thing of the whole affair was the look of blank amazement of that \vell meaning gentleman as ho beheld the front car, with its two trailers, turn up Lincoln uvenue.—Chicago News. An Unfinished Shave. This reminds the, writer of an experience in the Arran Islands, on the west coast of Ireland. He had three weeks' growth of beard on his face, and he hunted over the three, islands for a barber, at last finding: one who was willing to undertake the job. The Arran barber had never shaved a Yankee, and was overjoyed at the chance. He was 20 years old, and had been engaged all his life at building stone walls. He sharpened his razor on a piece of smooth flagstone and seated his victim in a kitchen chair. One man held the patient's head and a dozen interested spectators looked on, for it was au altogether unprecedented event in 'the islands. Tho lathering was done with a piece of hard brown soap, which was nibbed over the face. Grabbing a handful of hair on top of the patient's head the stone wall builder flourished the razor in the air and exclaimed: "Are ye all ready, sir?" "All right," was the trembling reply. Down came the razor with a sweep like that of a scythe. The implement was evidently as full of teeth as a buzzsaw. It tore the hair out by the roots. It raised the victim bolt upright as if a cannon cracker had exploded. Tears gathered iu his eyes. His hands clinched convulsively, and a rivulet of blood ran down his cheek. The butcher went to the window to wipe his weapoii clean. While standing there he looked up and exclaimed sympathetically: '•Shure, sir, ye have a face as tindher as a little baby!" The shave was concluded three weeks later in the city of Gal way.—New York Sun. Dnst to Dust. A thousand years hence—so says a member of the Academy of Sciences— nearly all the stone buildings now standing in Europe will have crumbled to dust. So perishable is the material of which they are constructed that the process of decay is already evident in many conspicuous edifices. The same thing is going on in this country. Neither marble Nor our favorite brown stone can withstand the action of the elements. Even the Capitol 'at Washington is undergoing disintegration. It may not bo important that an ordinary dwelling house should last a thousand years. For sanitary reasons it is, perhaps, just as well that people should have to build their houses over again once every two or three centuries. But it is not agreeable to think that the Capitol and all the great churches in the country will have disappeared by the year of grace 2890.—New York Ledger.
