(Ideas are solicited from oiir farmer readers. Queries will be answered. Address to the Editor, James Wilson, Truer, Iowa,) , IOWA, OCT. 1, 1890. Iowa'farms are in more demand. Free'hides do not prevent a corner in leather and boota. Gladstone advised farmers to grow more fruits and breed rabbits, in a speech lately delivered at Hawarden. The August number of the Iowa signal service bureau is a very readable production. Mr. Sage makes cold crop reports interesting, and dull statistics musical. We hope the Senate will not forget the lard bill. Let cotton seed oil sell on its merits and lard on its merits. The Iowa hog is getting tired of lugging oil for the trust. The British farmers are after parliament for reforms. They want the church titles rolled from their shoulders to those of the landlords. We are several laps ahead of our cousins over the water.

Gentlemen, we will save up the pieces until we get enough to notice, and if we die in your debt you can levy on the N. E. of Sec. 18, 85,14. We notice that dairymen who have poor pastures advocate feeding grain while the cows are pasturing. The profits will depend on the price of grain and dairy products. This we know: first class pastures need no grain to keep their yield in milk, through the cow. Whether to feed, or stock over, and sell grain, is an uppermost question. Some farmers never sell grains and where the farm has the proper complements of all kinds of .stock, it is out of the question to sell when the crop is short. The land will have something to say back to all grain sellers sooner or latter, Chauncey Depew, the president of a great railway corporation, urges farmers to organize and look after middlemen and other enemies. Goodness! How nice it must be to occupy this position. If we. who live by farming, say half as much as corporation presidents and attorneys do when they talk to farmers and say what they think, some one at once plucks our sleeves and whispers: "Look out! Go slow. You may hurt the party." When our British cousins want to carry a point they seldom stick for excuses. Our beef cattle have been killed at the port of landing for years because lung plague was found here. Now that Secretary Rusk has stamped the last milk herd out that had the disease, the British peo pie take another tack and say that it is inhuman to take live cattle over—so many die on the passage—you know. Our agents have been placed at each landing port to inspect each animal. All our railway systems show increase of earnings for August. They were moving the large crop of a year ago. This time next year they will report decreased earnings. As localities change from grain raising to dairying and stock growing the freights change, and it is a wise police for railway managements to en courage all diversified industries along their lines. Now that war between the carriers and the people has measurably ceased, it is a good .time to see to this. See to it, as the pasture dries up, that the dairy cow has her rations eked out. Protect her from cold winds. She will milk best on feed most easily digested. The softening of fodder in the silo is the principal service of that plan. Other dairymen steam and boil and preserve sweetness. Dear feed this winter will justify experiments. The warmer the quarters the better the cow will milk. The north wind is an enemy to milk. So is frozen water, and noise,, and whips, and dogs. Our minister to Germany, William Walter Philps, thinks coaxing the better way with the Germans with regard to getting them to admit our hog products as they admit those of other nations Coaxing is often the best way to get i hog to do as you desire, but we think a little of their own medicine would be salutary. How long are we to wait' Wehope Minister Philps is gently scratch ing the way of the hair. Is that wha; diplomats are for, or to insist on justice? Frenchmen are demanding the repea of the prohibition Of American salted meats. That hog of ours is becoming an international animal. We predict he will have his way at home and abroad A good many of us are on his side of al questions that effect him. He is rooting his way up to five cents and scooting through between the legs of the cotton seed oil trust, and deafening the dip lomats with bis squeals, and disturbing France and threatening Germany. More power to him. The highest classes of cattle sell from $4 to $5.10, not mentioning fancy Whoever has good, well bred steers can afford to fatten them thoroughly. Al the poorer grades of cattle will be stock ed over. Prices are certain to be goo< for good beeves. If you live near a flax mill get gome of the meal to finish with The British farmer has been buying the most of it. He knows that it is the cheapest feed in America to-day. W can feed it and send beef abroad if h caa sard here for the Sax meal. Our imports for the seven mouths end- ug July 81 are about $48,000,000 larger ban our exports for the same time. Drugs, manufactures of silk, cotton, wool, flax and iron have all increased. There is an Increase in exports in metals, cattle, corn and torn meal, wheat and flour, railway cars and carriages, iron and iteel manufactures. Our heavy grain >rops of last year caused the increase in meal, flour, wheat, cattle and meats. The ncrease in imports of foreign shop goods s caused by the anticipated increase in duties. Hogs range from $4.00 to $4.80 for everything but stags or other discredited animals. This pays, even at present jrices of corn. Our people know better low to prepare the best hogs than do farmers anywhere else in the world. When we know as much about cattle and mutton sheep, and the dairy, Iowa farms will sell higher and their owners will make more money. It will pay us to take all possible care of our shoats, as he American hog has the ear of the government, so to speak, and he will sell still higher. T. II. Gordan, inspector of stock in Queensland, writes the Mark Lane Express that "Angus cattle imported from Scotland have died of tuberculosis." He says regarding Short-horns that the in- jred families show more tendency to the the disease. The London Times tells of active steps being taken to stamp out the ung plague that is still prevalent in that country. We are rid of the lung plague inown as pluero pneumonia, and think that our dry climate and different ways of handling cattle will discourage tuber- ulosis. Spain is about to establish a school of agriculture, where among other things plowing is to be taught. To most farmers this will seem an indication of primitive agriculture there. Still, it is a sad fact that we have a few first rate plowmen. Good fall plowing covers all the weeds. The furrows are straight. The furrows in our mellow soils should be turned over, in stiff, damp, clay soils set on edge. The plow when running easily, needs no holding, except when it meets unusual obstructions. Heavy double- trees change the draft, short beams go unsteadily, dull shares take extra horses. The new grant of $15,000 a year, in- Teasing until it reaches$25,000,t,o be used only for industrial education, will be felt in our farm college at Ames. They are doing good work up there. They are gradually getting the right men in their chairs. Early educators did not design the education of the farmer and median ic. European agricultural colleges aim to educate the young land owner and farm superintendent. Our people are bringing the efforts of the professors to lie task of helping the farmer of to day and reducing all fugitive facts to conclusions for the farmers of the future so that they may have a foundation well laid upon which to build. Should premiums be given for grades as breeders? is a question that is troub ling our fair authorities. A native mare of ten hundred weight is bred to an imported draft horse and the colt is a mark ed improvement. It is well fed, well de veloped, looks well. In its best condi tion at three or four years old it would get a premium from some judges over-its sire. But all the good points it has came from the sire. The sire will breed sucl colts from such mares regularly. The grade will not. We hear unthinking men say: "If the grade beats the thor oughbred let it." What has the grade to commend it?. Darwin proved conclu sively that grades bred to grades breed back to natives. If breeding has provec anything it is that, to progress, pure blood must be used on one side. There may be localities that have not plenty o full blooded sires. Let them give premi urns to grades. Now that our people are turning thei; attention to mutton sheep the import a tions are brisk. It is in order to get al the points available about the breed; coming here. We are getting two kind —the black faced and white faced. Thi Downs are all of the former, the Lieces ters, LSncolns and Cotswolds of I latter. The Downs come from hard, dr; soils and their natures conform to thi pastures thai develop them. The whit faces come from the heaviest pastures o England and have peculiarities develop ed there. Most of of our Iowa lands are dry, but some are not so high-lying as others. The feet of the white faces are suited to heavier grasses and soft walks have hair between the claws of the hoof that protect them. The Downs, comini from bard ground, have not the feet protected and are more liable to foo troubles in soft, muddy pastures. W (?o not think low lying, damp, heavy soil are the places for sheep, however, characteristics. These are SPAVKD HKII<'KH,S. Farmers who sell off their heifers a any age for beef lose by not having them spayed. They feed better spayed anc grow better and sell better. Quotation for prime, spayed heifers will be a featur of our market reports in the future, when our farmers attend to this. Spayed toeif era make the best possible beef. Tber is not enough of it being done to eoabl salesmen to group them for sale and re port. In Great Britain it has long been done and nobody there thinks of sacrific ing open heifers as we do. There is usually, $1 a hundred difference between spayed and open heifers, and there is als< a great difference in thrift. All Ueife** not designed for breeders shouW b» spayed the spring th.ey are a year old. 'hetelaflo ffibre dftttgef attotdlng the pwfttlon thfttt that tiiftt waits upon eas- ratibfl, Tbo heifer should be housed welve hoars before the operation and hould have neither feed nor .drink dur- ng that time, She should never be run r excited before or after it. She should ie protected from extremes of heat and old after the operation, but should be given some exercise away from the other fttlle. The reason why spayed heifers make he best beef is that nature fortifies the emale with surplus blood against the no- cessltudcs of breeding. This tendency ncreases the value of the beef, because be juices of this nature are what gives alue to beef. The spayed heifer fattens rapidly. The meat is finer grained than hat of the steer, and as the practice be- omes general it will be in demand by beef epicures. Our farmers lose immense* y by the sale of heifers at present. It is one of our great farm wastes. Good beef will be in great demand soon. Great Britain with her 36,000,000 people has only about 6,000,000 cattle, and there are many rich people there who will have the best beef and will pay for it. The people generally can not afford to eat beef as ours do, but there are so many wealthy folks hat draw interest from investments from all the world that a great demand always requires filling over there. Acts at once, never fails, DeWitt's cough and consumption cure. A remedy for asthma and that feverish condition which accompanies a severe cold.—Dr. Sheet/. A NEW MOVE IN BEEF SHIPPING Our exported beef in quarters does not sell as well as that killed nearer the consumer. "Nelse" Morris, one of the big our at Chicago, has discovered that he can ship the living animal to the seaboard, kill there, and Ret the carcass several days sooner upon the foreign market from the date of slaughter, and n fresher conditionandthat the shrinkage n transit of the live animal will not equal the profit of fresher beef. In this condition it is just to observe that the economic methods thought out by men who want to make money, compensate to some extent for the operations of the trust benefits they get from rebates. It seems to be difficult to prevent even by federal law, great profits from exclusive 'avors going to them. They are, however, doing us the favor of opening for us trade on economic basis that will exist when their exclusive privileges close. And it might further be observed, that no man in America works harder for poorer clothes, poorer surrounding, than old "Nelse." He would have some trouble in evading the tramp law in our State, and yet, he makes millions from :attle, that others can not share. We think the tendency of the times will even up things, and "Nelse" Morris will have his millions for the work he has done studying out how, most economically, to move cattle and cattle products. Our friends should give DeWitt's cough arid consumption cure a trial. No disappointment follows the use of this reliable medicine, and it merits the praise received from all who use it.

By all means encourage the sale abroad of everything we have to sell that it pays our people to produce, but remember we bought $789,823,228 worth of goods from foreign countries during the last fiscal year. Governmental policies, that will have a tendency to make more of those goods at home, will make more customers for the farmers, Most of those things coma from foreign shops. The people who work in them are fed by foreign farmers. Every article we cease to buy from foreigners and make here makes us more mouths to feed here. It is well known that the home customers of thi* American farmers are his reliable custom »rs and that our foreign Customers take little, comparatively. The families of American workingmen eat good beef and pork and dairy products and poultry and fruits and the like that it pays our farmers to produce. It is well known that the earnings of labor abroad must go first to sustain crowned heads and great armies and navies and established churches and aristocracies. After all those are fed full and clothed in the best, and educated to the highest pitch, the laborer takes what is left. He can not live as our working people live, consequently he is not a good consumer for us. He eats cheap grains, of which we sell little or none, and of which we have none at all to spare at present, like corn, and oat?, and rye. He eats cheap vegetables and no fruit. Our best policy is to multiply the home workers who eat the best the land affords and who now consume so nearly all the American farmer's produce. This reciprocity talk about getting foreign markets for American flour may interest the people on the Jim river when they happen to have more than can be sold at home. It does not interest Iowa farmers who produce none, nor do those who do still raise wheat in the northwestern counties get good prices enough to justify them robbing their farms for it. Our true policy is to enlarge the number of American non- producers of food. Whatever good comes frpin reciprocity eventually will be in getting access for our shop goods to countries that sell us what we cannot produce, like India rubber and coffee. It was shabby of Congress to refuse farmers protection to their flax industry and on hides, but for all that we cannot afford to destroy the home market. It is the farmer's main stay. Our prosperity will increase as we buy less from abroad and make more here. Let the factory flourish. We will thrive feeding its workers. A good lantern for only 5Qe at Towo- send & Langdon's. PARMKRS The new tork Sun of a recent date seta out to ridicule the western farmer. Wo quote a sample of It: "He lives in a one-story, four room house; so curtains, no upholstery, It keeps out the rain and trys to keep out the cold. , Few houses have A garden patch. They use a great deal of grease. They have »islight forward lounte from the waist. They look worse in their best clothes than in their worst clothes; sleek down their hat with water and grease. A parade has the same attraction for them It has for a child. In prohibition states all the farmers drink whisky. The pop-' ular drink in Iowa is 'cow boys' cocktail.' They hate New York without having seen it—never had money enough to pay car fare there one way. These people are lit* tie known in the east and less appreciated." This will do as a sample. The western farmer has not been pleasing the Sun, evidently. He would not nominate Depew. He insisted on stopping rebates and discriminations on railways. He passed the silver bill. He located the world's fair at Chicago. He does not favor New^ York importers as much as American working* He egged on Rusk lately to kill New York cattle afflicted With lung plague. He is after New York merchants, who adulterate food and deal in options, and so the Sun hires a lineal do scendant of the impenitent thief to abuse him. The ill-tongued dog took the scent west, of a colony that left the five points of Gotham, in lieu of going to states prison. He traced them to the sandy barrens of Egypt, where loyal men were chased out during the war and where lodges of the Golden Circle flourished, where church bells never toll and the fires of the school house are never lighted. There he found his subjects for bis caricature, and the west, that gave Lincoln and Grant and Garfield and Logan and the volunteers that put down the rebellion while New York was mobbing orphan asylums and resisting recruiting, is represented to the east by a metropolitan journal as the amplification of the lowest eastern society. This is not wise. The west is grasping the reins of national authority. Cordial relations should exist between the sections. The west is maturing the coming American and he will give laws to the east. Happily for the east the west is educating. It has more boys and girls in high schools and colleges, according to population, than either the eastern, middle or southern states. Many of the chairs in eastern colleges are now filled with western farm boys, and many executive and congressional chairs will be.
