PAUL BAIL-WAV COMPANY, write lo II. (J. RAUGAN. Land Commissioner, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Good cattle are one dollar a hundred above low water mark. Poor stock is a drug. The impression grows among veterinarians that lump jaw in cattle is contagious. If you want poultry to feed, and care for themselves, nnd thrive, do not keep too much. Butter is higher than a year ago and must go up still, as grain is one hundred per cent, above prices of a year ago. If frosts come before corn is ripe, it will make good seed, if promptly gathered, and thoroughly dried, and kept dry, i#n looking over the young timothy to see if it is a good stand, be careful that you do not take the sprouts of the oats for it. Sheep are plenty in Chicago, but the good are, and have been, and will be very scarce for a long time to come, because they are not in the country. We have been looking carefully over corn growing on tile drained land, and find it is an average of the best crops grown on old pasture land of last year. It will pay us to give more attention to potatoes. When they are scarce good crops pay. When they are plenty we can feed them profitably. The possibilities of the potato are undiscovered—most of them. Chicago gives the country two sites for the world's fair—one for farm exhibits off by itself, the other on the lake front for other things. So the granger is to be flocked by himself. How is that? We will see. There is something to be learned yet about mixing crops, lieports of great yields of wheat sowed with oats are given. We notice that potatoes planted among corn, in vacant hills grew well all through the drouth. After some reflection we conclude that no class of society stands by the work-a- day laborer as the farmer does, and no class can be arrayed so easily against the farmer as the representatives of the working men. Better acquaintance may change this. Do you own a private dairy, and do you sell for less than the creamery? If so, you are wasting your time. Private dairies can beat corporation dairies every time, because they can control all the factors and big dairies cannot, Look into this. Too much poor butter is put upon the market. The silo is doing one good service to our farmers. It shows how much feed can be had from an acre of land and how few acres will feed a large herd, if extra work and thought are applied. It is teaching, also, that dry feed is not best for the dairy cow. Time will tell wheth er silage is preferable to heated feed. We are told repeatedly that the South American markets are to absorb our farm products. We do not think so. Those countries are poor, because they have developed nothing but agriculture. The Argentine Confederation suffers now, because it has not diversified industry. They sell farm products. We may get an out let there for factory goods. The soldier element in the farmer does not hurt a bit. When Secretary Rusk went to stamp out the last vestiges of the pleuro in some milk stables, in eastern cities lately, he was met with states rights, the constitution, police power, bulldogs : cattle owners, and threats of resistance Jerry said, "I will kill these diseased cat tie if it takes two regiments of soldiers You may try the legality of it after ward.'

None of them want to boy from U8, more than they can help. See their hostility to our meats. All of them want to sell to us the products of their ehop?. If we arc wise we will go on extending the home market for farm products by diversifying our industries. The hot winds of July and August have revolutionized the farmers' future. The desert moved one hundred miles back eastward. Our grains will all be needed at home. It will cost eastern people so much to buy our corn to feed, that many of them will give up competition. Poor lands will be leas valuable, and good lands more valuable. Iowa lands will be in demand and go up in value. Good animals will pay to keep, and "poor animals will lose money to their owners. Wet, rich lands will be drained, and then hilly and sandy lands will bo grazed by the smaller breeds of animals. There is demand for more exact aad promptly forthcoming statistics concerning cattle. The four buyers at Chicago have cold storage rooms to hold fifteen days' supplies. With this reserve they help down prices by periodical means. If feeders observe exactly the trend of the business, whether more or less are being fed, and whether cattle decrease according to populatiofc, then cattle could be held as well as the four buyers can refuse to buy for a few days. Cattle are low compared with the price people pay for beef. Cattle are cheap here compared with the prices abroad. Exports are greatly increasing. The big four control the situation. The 'ard bill may fail in Congress, it i said, because of the lobby against it. We suggest to the powers that be that hide and-seek work will not longer serve in farm legislation. The sale of adulterated lard, labeled as it is, is right, and we wil hold our majority responsible for legisla tion to that effect. Iowa hogs carry the cotton seed trust over the world. Pass that bill gentlemen, please, or look for squalls, The United States sold $150,000,000 worth of breadstuffs last fiscal year. Sta tisticians assure us that our crops are short to exceed last year's exports. The balance of trade was some 160,000,000 in our favor last year. How are bills to foreigners to be paid if we buy as much as we did last year? It is evident that we should buy less. If we do not we shai: lose our circulating medium to meet our obligations abroad. Government policies that limit importations will be wise. We must have the women's bonnets made at home, and the boy's suits, or do worse. Inquire into the price of flax rne&l. It goes abroad mostly and is fed to animals to make them fatter than they readily can be without it. With dearer corn we can afford to feed it all at home this year. We grow a few acres and feed it without having the oil extracted. It is the strongest feed oa the farm, and a little of it is good for young animals. It will put a thriftless animal in the way to doing well quicker than anything else. The partition of Africa has been completed by the gr«at nations of Europe. They will stop slave trading and develop agriculture, forestry and mining. We If you want the most vigorous seed iorn save it before it is fully ripe, dry it thoroughly and keep it dry. Good seed iorn for all ordinary seasons Is saved after it is ripe, and before the frost is severe enough to Injure the germ. The one thing necessary is to get it thoroughly dry and keep it dry up to the day of planting. The old fashioned plan of ranging seed corn over the kitchen atove and letting it hang there, never has been improved upon as far as good seed is concerned. winter, cheapest, should come to the font with the best hotse* is, in <t material point of view, more valuable than would be the dlseof etf of gold on the ftnds of out streams. We hope that the scandals that have accompanied horse rots will be frowned down by the breed ers of speed horses, so as to remove the aversion of our moral and religious people from the business. Vulgarity, bet- ing nnd gambling never helped a fine lorse. We know a minister of the gos- >el who keeps n fast stepping horse, who a as lovable a man as Iowa possesses.

We would rather lave it made at home, from our flax tow, as it is being done, and should be done. The people who will make it will not be :ed by us, nor have we more hope of the foreigner keeping out of trusts than of our own people. In this respect we will be dependent upon the foreigner, in a direction where we should use a raw material that goes to waste. We would arrange to give work to the sisal and manila growers of foreign countries, and play nto the hands of the great twine trust. It s ostensibly for the benefit of wheat growers who know they ere soil robbers and must quit it and turn to the dairy and to the feed yard. This is the intention of every wheat grower and his hope !or the future. When he does quit soil robbing he wants customers for dairy products and meats. He will not find these in the growers of sisal and manilla, n Mexico and the islands of the sea. Vfeanwhile our flax is wasted. It is a very great blunder. As regards binding twine for the farmer who raises oats, it costs as much to put up a crop that way as by other methods that save the straw n good condition for fodder, and this must be done. We notice a pleasant feature of our county fairs, that is the victualing of the people by some church society of ladies with food prepared by themselves, at their own houses, and donated by them for some holy purpose. The people are well fed with food that does not sicken them. The good women get money to serve some angelic purpose, and, indeed, the lessons learned at the tables, waited on by nice girls from our best families is an Americanizing influence that deserves bounties from Congress quite.'as much as sugar production. The farmer editor Who fails to notice such improvements might as well be a'mole. .P h DeWitt's Little Early Risers; only pill for chronic constipation, indigestion, dyspepsia. None so good. Sold by Sheetz. We are asked -what breed of mutton sheep we would advise farmers to buy. We hesitate to advise, as the growing of mutton sheep in Iowa is so new that few breeds have been thoroughly tried. This can be safely said. All the breeds have excellencies and have been developed to suit certain demands, rather, certain re quirements developed them. If you want to force early lambs for market, get the largest Hampshires, or Leicesters, or Lin coins. If you have light Iowa lands, get the smallest Southdowns. Importers say the Shropshire downs are plentierin Eng land than any other. The future only will give us the facts for Iowa. We have no sheep at present. We tried Lincolns, so as to have mutton for home use. They got too fat,, had two solid inches of tal low on the rib. They are just the thing for raising early lambs for big prices. We will try some of the Downs for home use next time. To be frank, we want to fur nish our own family with home made meat, to save butcher bills. A beeve is too big to kill, except in the cold months We think a flock large enough to furnish mutton in April and May and early June and in September would be economy. We hate to eat salt meat all summer, am butcher's meats come high. Farmers should live on the best, but they should raise it for themselves. This buy, buy ing is costly. We sell more of DeWitt's Little Early Risers than any other pills their action is. easy, do not gripe or cause pain, are the best regulator of the liver, stomach am bowels.—L. A. Sheetz. The producing of Axtell is of far more than passing interest. Old Britain hai been the home of the horse of spirit, o courage, of endurance. His developmen could only come about through favorabh conditions of soil and climate, and by such a people as the British. In our own land Kentucky has furnished the condit ions, climate, soil and the men to develop the horse. Other states are exploring their possibilities. Now comes Iowa with Williams, and his genius, with Axtell anc Allerton to speak for it. It means mill ions for Iowa, this new development o: her capacity in flue horse breeding. We do not advise farmers to turn to the speec horse, but we recognize and <h,e work will, that the state that has conditions in men and material to produce Axtel can produce the very best specimens of a horse of any other breed, for any other purpose. The road is open. Men of dif ferent tastes will get new inspiration to breed and rear for different purposes, as sured that Iowa is expected to produce the best. We are prouder that Iowa pro duced Wlliams, than that he trained Ax tel. It is a good discovery.

The Ayrshire cow in the days of our grandfathers was a little bit of a beast, just as big as the Ayrshire pastures would keep. As land was drained, manured and improved there, this cow grew in size, until on the heaviest pastures she is now as big as the Shorthorn. She is still to be found of all sizes, as she is found in different pastures just as all cattle aro found. The Jersey is small on the channel islands, be cause they are bleak and bare. But she is growing on our pastures, and in a century the Ayrshire and Jersey kept on the rich lands of Iowa wijl grow to be as large as the keeping will sustain. Our farmers should learnthat size depends on keeping, and milking depends upon being fed and bred for milk and being milked. Iowa dairymen will miss it, if they follow the lead of states that have scant pastures and dear feed. We will develop an Iowa dairy cow. She will differ from either Ayrshire or Jersey, because our pastures are better than those that developed either. We want a good milker, and a cow whose calf will feed well, and mature early. New England and Wisconsin want a dairy cow, Iowa wants more. All efforts to transplant breeds from poor soils to Iowa will disappoint. We must make some thing of the calf. The time will come when the milk alone will not pay enough. Why should Iowa dairymen fight their battles with one hand tied behind them as big boys fight little ones?

No brass band is used to herald our girls as they go to teach school aud fit the young people for citizenship. From al the states and from all nations the chil dren come that gather around the teacher in the quiet school house. They have learned the lesson of their families, only differing as families differ. From em pires and monarchies the children come from the east, the south aud the west bringing with them the neglect and the wrongs and the privileges of many gener ations. The little school house has di verse aud outlandish accents, manners am customs presented to the young school mistress, all to be modified, moulded changed and elevated into what the Uni ted States wants. The queer medley o pupils watch the teacher and their firs lessons come from her behavior. They sec the poetry of motion in her even movement, aud hear music in every word Iowa has given the best product of its best families to do work for the nation here and train for God and the Republic the children of the people of all lands They learn from her and from each other This that is objectionable.and that not so nice, is eliminated. Day by day her gen tie ways and words lift the whole up high er, toward what the country requires. She has the mightiest responsibility and dis charges it like the gentlewoman that she is, term after term, until the young farm er will not longer wait, and she goes to preside in his home, and thus ministering angels wait on men.

If you grind the ears, and tie up the cattle, and do the work yourself, ou will be certain tomake money. That's he way eastern people compete with us, They grind and mix with hay, and tie up and do the work themselves, and compete with one hundred steers fed with ear corn among mud and northwest wind. We never knew a farmer to feed good steers and lose money. We have known money ost and lots of It, by feeding scrubs. Let the scrub strictly alone this year. You may have to feed him until another crop puts more hope in the horizon. The big 'coder will operate. He will buy steers from the farmer who never improves. He will buy corn from the man who must sell at the lowest price. The big feeder is an abnormal quantity. A sharp fellow. A philosophic dealer. A friend of yours and mine, but better breeding and feeding among farmers will lose him acquaintances. Beef will be higher; it must be. Great Britain, our greatest consumer for ;ood beef, raises less and less. We must furnish more. Nobody else can, because we have the cheap, good grass, and the cheapest, best grain.

A remedy for asthma and that feverish condition which accompanies a severe cold.—Dr. Sheetz. KLACK I/EG Is a disease that is found most commonly among young cattle that are in good flesh and poorer ones that have been arought from the northwest and are being fed well, and are gaining fast. We generally see it in the fall of the year, af- ter'the frost comes. Black Leg may be said to be a disease of itself, although closely allied to anthrax. It is due to a germ that has a very infectious nature when certain conditions are existing. One calf will not take it from another, but they :et it from outside surroundings, as grass, hay, water and even flies that are affected with the germ could transmit it by their jite. The first symptoms that we notice are, the animal is a little dumpish, not caring whether it eats or drinks, it hangs behind the rest of the herd and moves slow. Next we notice it lame, most generally in one hind leg, sometimes in a front one. It lies down most of the time, is feverish and does not eat. From this on the place where the lameness is indicated begins to swell; when pressed the swelling will crackle, as tramping on straw would sound. It is caused by gas rupturing from one vesicle to the other that has been generated by the decomposing tissue below it. At this stage there is no help for the animal and it soon dies. On opening the cadaver the swollen parts are found mortified and decomposing. There is treatment for it, but the preventative, if resorted to in time, will render the animal proof. Get a needle about six inches long and about one inch wide. Thread it with some strong cord like binder twine. Saturate it with a lo- tionof turpentine and pwd. Spanish flies each one part and cosmoline two parts. Run the needle through the dewlay, that loose skin on the breast of the calf. Tie the double thread in a square knot in loop about four inches in diameter and turn the animal loose. They do the rest. J. W. W., D. v. M. AUCTION.
