Public sales of Down sheep in England averaged over $100 in sotno instances. What we buy abroad we might make at home, for the most part, and what we sell, foreigners must have. Flax 1ms required three weeks to rot in water. A new process in London does the business'in two hours. Dr. C. Upton, of Macon, Georgia, re gards the mole and the toad the best friends the farmer has, as they live en tirclv on insects. Andrew Fuller, in the New York Trib une, recommends a cold, deep well for cooling milk, the cans lowered and raised by a windlass. The grass and corn belt is bounded on the north by the white rabbit, on the east by the Allcghanys, on the south by the cactus, and on the west by the desert. Secretary Rusk says the farmers are tired of rocking the industrial cradle for six foot-whiskered-infants, while they have no protection at all. The new bill, he thinks, will change that. The time is coming when our farms must yield twice as much on the average ns they do now. Wonder if the farmers who make money are anticipating that time, and get away beyond the average already. It can be done. Our new tariff on ores induces Mexico to set about encouraging home smelting. If Mexico ever prospers it will be by diversifying industry. That country will be better worth trading with when it declares its industrial independence of Europe. Depew, speaking of Greeley, said: "He cleared away the underbrush so rapidly, and built roads and bridges over mountains and streams so fast, that he oft'en had constituents at the front, calling for their laggard, or timid Congressmen to come on and take their positions." We need Greeleys now. Fast Man tine with Vestlbuled Trains between Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Minneapolis*.

Clyde built vessels during the same month aggregating 16,765 tons. So says Lloyds, a British publication. This does not look like the total abandonment of ship building in this country. It is a home market for farm products worth the noticing and it is growing. Gov. Boies regards the very poor and the very rich the dangerous element in society, those who own capital and those who sell labor. His conclusions are the same as the historian Robinson came to in picturing society in our country many years ago. Both find the safety of the country in the middle classes, that control the capital that gives them work. There has never been a time when crop statistics were so generally common property. Our statisticians have got very near to the truth as regards the world's present crops and the old crops on hand. The result is a clear understanding by producers that there is a shortage. The bears cannot gainsay this, and farmers the world over are slower to put crops on the market than heretofore. Correct information will prevent corners up and down. The action of our government in appointing cattle inspectors abroad and meat inspectors at home, under Secretary Rusk's direction, opens the eyes of our British cousins. They call Rusk a "keenly endowed official." That is about the size of Jeremiah. The hide and seek treatment of our products in foreign countries to give indirect protection to farmers there must stop. Let them levy duties if they like, but they must stop defaming our exports. For the last four or five years Iowa farm lands dropped in price. Now there is an upward turn. From many directions news come that our lands are in demand at bet ter prices than have been current for sev eral years. What can an Iowa farmer do to improve his condition that promises more than farming in Iowa? Mercantile life is crowded, money is lowering in value, new lands cannot be had at prices that will make as good returns as Iowa lands. The best outlook we know of is for farmers who improve stock of all kinds, methods of breeding, rearing and feeding, improve pastures and crops of all kinds. Our good, live farmers have always made money, they are doing so now. The villages and towns of the state are full of retired, well-to-do farmers. Stick to the farm.

If you can comply with the above, call or address with references, Room I'd, Peavy Grand, Sioux City, la, The Wool Grower scolds people who talk about raising turnips for sheep. Il should, however, advise the feeding ol some roots to breeding ewes. All breed ing animals are better for feeds of some kinds of roots. The oftener the better in winter. This is not a turnip climate, but beets can be grown and if we see the uead of them, potatoes can be raised. Il is an open question whether animals can be developed as well without vegetables in winter as they can with them, and our experience leads us to believe they can not. We have seldom seen a failure in mangels when sown early. The mutton sheep that are being imported were fed, most of them, oa turnips, and it will be wise for importers and purchasers from them to feed mow 6*.--'tag f rott S0 me root. II farmefa la anj« legality can grow turnips, and they tiaa, let theft do so and feed them freely., Money is quite plenty, especially in the well farmed sections of the west. It is so plenty that It can not be loaned out at current rates. Interest Will consequently come down, and as It comes down, land will rise In value. We do not understand tho late cry of money stringency in the east. The west has surplus money in Us banks that is Increasing and wfli Increase, as our soil is every year producing more than is consumed. Bradstreet's reasons for the money stringency are to the effect that the collapse of the trust ventures in our country of late years has led to the organization of industrial enterprises and the offering of better interest by them that have been absorbing investment cash, and still that publication says that our obligations of a private character are rapidly returning from Europe, being ab aorbed at home. Our nation is ahead some $800,000,000 a year. Our horse importers have not bought BO extensively during the past season, but have selected carefully what they did bring. If we gathered the sense of that feature of the pending tariff bill, only pedigreed females are exempt from duty. We doubt the wisdom of putting a tariff on breeding stock, while we have not enough here, of all the best breeds. A. journey over Iowa will show that improvement is not universal, but only here and there. While it is daily more evident that good, animals pay, it is too soon to hamper a desire to get the best animals. We do not consider breeders. They are but a small per cent, of the whole, and we have the advantages of cheaper keeping to enable them to compete with importers. Pedigreed stock will sell higher when twice as many farmers are improv- ng. Just what influence controls always when farm matters are touched at Washington, "no fellow can find out." Our Congress, at the instance of the 'armers, enacted the meat inspection bill, an act to insure the goodness of our meats before they go abroad. The London Standard calls it an outrageous bill, as bad as the McKinley bill. What does ail the English anyway? They have hostile acts of council because we are not care- ul enough about what we send abroad. Farmers demand inspection, and then they storm because all excuse will be removed for discriminating against our meats. By this the Standard will learn ,hat the farmer is looking over the shoulder of the American legislator. If the English find poison in the McKinley bill ,t must have palatable features for Arner- .cans. We may as well learn sooner, as ater, that our British cousins are the cleverest traders in the old world, ,and ,hey may as well learn that we are a Uttle in the trading way ourselves, and while we will apply the golden rule, we rather "ook for its application to us, and find it scarce. These periodical "reliefs" to Wall street from the federal treasury are a feature of governmental management unique in themselves, unprecedented in history, unauthorized by law, and questionable in expediency. New York capitalists buy abroad in anticipation of higher tariff laws. This takes their ready cash. They feel shortage of currency. The Secretary of the Treasury buys at a heavy premium bonds not due, and all is well with the wall street gamblers. It looks bad, tastes bad, smells bad and is bad. If there is not enough currency, issue more greenbacks, the currency the people love, or coin silver free. But of all the farces in the land, our people detest Wall street the most, and to read periodically of relief to that set, when the farmers of the country might all be knocked down by the sheriffs, Is without federal help not calculated to make people patriotic. However, this will be regarded "loud" until somebody like Chauncey Depew repeats it, and then it will be gospel. Put $50,000,000 of the $100,000,000 held idle in the treasury to redeem greenbacks into circulation. Then we will all get the benefit of it. Nobody is trying to corner greenbacks. We want national policies, not Wall street policies. We want national relief, not Wall street relief. No doubt the New York Sun, that lampoons western farmers, delights in seeing Wall street relieved. That people who despise western farmers need not look for sympathy from them when they bet and lose. then, hay differs. The time of the" cutting makes a difference. Hay cut in the blossom Is better than ripe hay, ot green hay. '.' HAY KATIONS. A correspondent asks how much hay is usually necessary to winter a cow, ahorse and a sheep. The horse needs no hay, if he is running loose and has plenty of blue grass accessible all winter, which we admit few farmers have. The sheep will also graze as long as grass is not covered with snow. The wintering of these two animals depends entirely on the state of the pasture, and no definite amount can be stated. We remember thirty-five years ago, when there was nothing but prairie hay from October until June, a horse needed a hay stack. When stalk fields and straw stacks came he needed less hay and now we know of herds that are wintered without any hay. Five sheep will eat as much as a cow, averaging both. But the cow—that depends. A cow giv ing milk should have indoor feed in all cold weather, and be indoors. A dry cow will graze on good grass alone as long as she can get at it. So, we cannot make a safe guess, pastures differ so. Two tons for a cow oa many farms are needed. Less on others, and more on others. We look for better pastures in the future, and more days grazing, and more corn fodder feeding, and leas hay making. 1'ASttTtlKS. No season shows the difference between good and poor pastures as well as the time when grass stops growing. Bare pastures then hate nothing for animals. Pastures well covered with grass resist winter longer and grass grows on them longer. The bare pasture is' in the worst possible condition to resist the extremes that come of freezing and thawing. The pasture that is well covered with grass is now doing its most valuable service to tho farmer. Until deep snows come it furnishes abundance, and stock does better during October and November on sheltered pastures than in two of the months that have flies. Perhaps the profits or losses of a season turn upou the condition of the pasture during the late fall months. The rule in Iowa js bare pastures. We have not yet adopted systems that provide against this. Only a few dairymen have anticipated feed indoors that keeps up the flow of milk after the cow leaves the pasture. It is practical to graze nearly nine months of the average year. Of course, cows can not be kept out doors in stormy weather, but all other stock can run to grass with advantage when there is any to get, and where they can get at it. Vigorous steps should be taken to bring the capacity of the pas ture and the wants of grazers nearer together. We can not afford to cut grass and fodder and spend time feeding ani mals when they could go and get food for themselves. Observe the bare pasture now, and arranne to have things different another year. THK VUOSX AND THE CUKE. The corn crop has still been further shortened by the early September frosts. We do not think our present crop will be more than half of last year's crop. Every ear in the dough will shrink where the frost killed the leaves, and this applies to a very large per cent, of ears over the state. Some of the early planted and well cultivated fields were ripe and beyond the power of frost. Corn growing on tame grass sod land was well out of the way. But we need not flatter ourselves thet the frost has done. little or no harm. It has done much. It may suit the purposes of people who want to buy up corn, to herald otherwise, but the truth is best for all concerned in the crop legitimately. While the corn crop is short, it need not be anticipated that it will go to famine prices. It has doubled in price already over that of a year ago. That will cause less to be used in many directions. Less will be made into glucose, starch, and highivines. These things sell on the markets of the world and can be made from other things. Highwines can be made from all grains, and starch can be made from potatoes, where they can not be hauled to market. Less corn will be fed in all directions. The eastern farmer will use less. He could only buy and feed our corn at moderate prices, and by doing his own work and feeding on approved methods, make a little profit. Young stock will get less corn. The hay crop in the great stock belt was generally good. Steers will be stocked over that would have been fed, had corn been cheaper. So economy on the farm and less used in the factories will leave more for imperative uses. All good cattle can be fed profitably, and all poor ones will be sacrificed before winter to cheap buyers on the market, or be stocked over on straw, stalks and hay, and some of them stunted, like enough. Live farmers can make profits fiom feeding dear corn, while others c'an not see their way clear. All this will operate to prevent famine prices, while good prices, even high prices, are certain. THE COW FOK IOWA. We have indicated the kind of cow that we think Iowa needs, taking all things into consideration. Our different breeds outside of our natives are the product of different pastures, in foreign countries. The heavier are from rich land, and the lighter are from the barer pastures of Europe. The farmers on thin soil eould not make beef to any considerable extent, and turned to the dairy. The farmers on heavy soils could make beef making pay as well as dairying pay, and gave attention to both. The farmers on heavy soils never went to the thin soils for dairy cows because they were not suited for the two purposes. Aside from all other con siderations, it must be remembered the cow gives milk by the way of the head and stomach. If all her meal were mush, and all her fodder were softened by heat ing or steaming or siloing, 'and the meal and coarser feeds so mixed that all could be cudded and digested, far greater re suits would be had from a given amount of provender. Because dairymen under less favorable circumstances attend to this, they can compete with uct. There is more to be considered in dairying than temperature and acids. As soils were im proved in some localities the cattle be came larger, or heavier breeds from heavier lands were brought to meet the new conditions of milk and beef. On these lines we have been advising. Iowa has a wonderfully rich soil. It develops the largest breeds. We think it wise to keep cows that milk well and breed good feed ing calves. But the Governor of Wiscon sin will not permit it. He issues bis proclamation against such cow. He wants the special milk breeds in the dairy, anc will hear of nothing else. Up in Wiscoa sin conditions differ from ours. Much of the soil is light .anc not the grass soil or corn soil that Iowa soil is. So they re quire a very different cow- Wisconsin -rew thirty- fsur million bushels of corn in 1899. Iowa grew two feuod«i4 ve millions. Wliconsln had 1,188,838 hogs, thai would require all her eora to feed, not lenvlng any for her C6W8, of Wlilbh she had 478,874, flolhtag lot houses, OXefl, »nd other cattle, of which the state has 692,005. Iowa had 854,18? milch cows, besides 1,77(5,884 other cattle and hogs. Still, Iowa is soiling corn, and the question to be considered is what kind of bovlnes should she keep, so as to consume this corn' at home. Wisconsin it will be seen must buy corn, and she does. She buys owr corn. We want our people to feed their corn at home, and let Wisconsin look out for herself. This may be the, bulk of our offending, in the eyes of the Wisconsin gubernatorial dairyman. We think our country has room for most of the European breeds. We would keep Jerseys, Kerrys and Ayr- shires, if we lived in Wisconsin. Gov. Hoard is correct in urging the breeding of ipecial dairy cattle up there. They have no grain to make beef with, taking the state altogether. They could not develop our larger calves, if they had them. We cpncur entirely in what they urge up there for themselves. But when Mr. Hoard tells us it is "heresy" to advise breeding and feeding for beef and milk, we want him to go further and tell us where we are to get the steers to consume our surplus grass and corn, if we adopt this little cat-hamed milking cattle. We make export cattle in Iowa and plenty of butter besides. Our state has probably doubled her cows in the last ten years. Wisconsin can only increase her cows as we grow corn for her, and as wheat growing states sell her bran. Our policy is to feed all our grains at home, and when we do, as we will soon, the northern governors andtheir satellites will sing lower. We could not keep the small breeds small if we had them. Iowa will double the weight of every well fed Jersey in a few generations. Qov. Hoard .ooks at farming from a single standpoint. Beyond the dairy he sees nothing, and thinks conditions in his state guage lie universe. We greatly approve what le is doing up there among the gravelly Irift, the pine barrens, sandy knobs and the like, with his Jersey. It is all right. Towa is a different state, with her coun- les of heavy grasses in good years, and bad years, her.township after township of corn, aggregating a fifth grown in the nation. We must get in step with the sapacity of the state as regards cows, and arrange farm systems that will keep good our peerless acres, and it will not be done by selling corn to dairy cows in Wiscon- in or elsewhere, or by keeping the small )reeds on our heavy lands.
