There are three ways In which nations tic- nuire wealth. First, by conquest, which Is robbery, second, by commerce, which is usually swindling, third, by agriculture, which Is the true and principal source of national wealth.—Benjamin Franklin. The ranch cattle have decreased three millions during the last ten years. So says the census, The English are debating the wisdom of establishing a school of agriculture to educate teachers. Two prominent questions agitate the nation. One ia the scarcity of money in the East because importers have overbought abroad expecting prices to raise- over speculation. The East goes straight to the Secretary of the Treasury for help in such cases, tt is proposed by John Sherman to issue more greenbacks to take the place of the retiring bank currency. Western men wanted this a year ago. The East has slowly crept up to it. The other startling happening is theOcala proposition of southern political farmers to have the government print money to loan on land and crops at two per cent. LOCAL NECESSITY OF EXl'EUIMKNTS.

Iowa farmers are educating many sister States toward organizing breeders' meetings. Michigan has just arranged for a permanent one. Qov. Hoard illustrating the value of condensing, took two dollars, one a grain dollar and the other a dairy dollar. The grain dollar paid twenty-one cents to get its value to the consumer; the dairy dollar paid seven cents of cheese and five cents of butter.

Prof. Bessey says we .must look to ihe roots of grasses to ascertain whether they are hardy. Blue grass and the clovers are well spread below the surface while timothy is not. He says the blue grass above ground dies in winter. That is true, but a better expression would be: it cures like hay. It is ungathered hay. We have Prof. Henry for authority that young hogs fed on corn dwarf, grow fat, have small bone and weak muscles. We are satisfied that the same is true regarding calves. First rate hay of any kind helps to avoid this condition. Oats is the readiest feed *or calves, but this year they are light and dear and a calf will, eat his head off if he gets all he wants. We feed clover hay, corn and a little oil meal and find calves do we'll. from the robbing system to the recuperative methods as fast as our eastern neighbors in Wisconsin. They have not a soil like ours and were sooner impressed with the absolute necessity of better farming. They have been exceedingly fortunate in the success of the agricultural college that has educated the farmers of the State through short and long courses in agriculture, through the best experiment station in the land and through a system of institutes that for them is admirable. Necessity compelled the Wisconsin people. We riot in a soil that is difficult to sterilize. Much that is said and done by our northern neighbors applies to farming everywhere. But as they have a different soil than ours and their conditions varying, care is necessary to distinguish between that which applies and that which does not. They buy grain. We sell. Prices of feed control feeding. They reach to the wheat and corn fields west and southwest, and experiment to find which pays them best. The dairy is their choice department, because witu work it pays best and with skill it pays better than any other farm department. We urgently need just such work done by scientists in Iowa from our standpoint as they have done from theirs. We require experiments regarding what breeds we produce. They are concerned about the feeding value of what they sp.ll. They conclude and determine the cow suited to their surroundings and recommend her to the whole world, nay, iu sist that the world must follow in their wake. It well might in many respects. Iowa might. Iowa will, but when we know as much about what concerns us as they know about what concerns them, we will reach different conclusions and be as positive. • to make beef tvlth eat corn. The New England farmers solved this problem long ago. They buy our corn at a hlglt price, get, it ground, pay a toll, feed it with chopped hay and then make money out of it. Calvet, horses and hogs chew their grain fairly well, but adult cattle make poor work of it; so much so that small ingests as a mouth full of grain go directly to the third stomach instead of the first. It is too coarse for the delicate structure to grind, and it passes on into the fourth stomach. This is the true digestive organ, but if corn or any other grain is not ground, if the cellulose coating of the kernel is not broken it will not digest, so on it goes through the alimentary canal. Corn will grow after having gone through- the animal. The value received from it as a food is practically nothing. When adult cattle eat properly prepared food they swallow it partially chewed into the first stomach, or rumen. When they are full they hunt a suitable place lie or stand, and then mastication commences. The terminal end of oeso- phagus, known as the oesophagal groove, is open on the under side. This opening grapples the rough food and regurgitates it into the mouth, where it is ground up fine. The saliva of the mouth converts the starch into sugar, thus preparing it for digestion. When it is sallowed the second time it goes into the third stom ach, the same as car corn, being about the same feeling. The maniples grind the food rather than digest it. From here it passes to the fourth stomach, where it is digested partially. The rest is accomplished in the more tortive portion of the elementry canal. In order to make the most out of corn ut this time of scarcity it should be ground for all kinds of stock. Cattle especially should be fed meal not alone but with cut hay in order to have it stop in the rumen, be re masti cated, have the necessary chemical changes take place with the starch, and cede all others when any system of farming is concerned. Twelve per cent, of milk is solids, from three to five per cent, is pure fats, and the rest is catine, mostly —the element that makes cheese. The factory system takes the twelve per cent, even if the whey is returned as in the case of cheese making. If the butter milk is returned In the case of butter making, from three to five per cent is lost to the farm. When a dairy of cows makes 800 pounds of butter on the average, which is high, or about 150 pounds, which is the average of the cows of the State, at present, the loss to the farm is serious. The Wisconsin people buy and feed Iowa corn and Dakota and Minnesota bran and replace what is lost. The farmer who docs not buy and feed grain is depleting his soil steadily. Of course he is not robbing the soil as fast as the grain seller, but those bright Wisconsin farmers who have such a superior agri cultural college and experiment station are getting down to facts very fast and see where they are drifting. No doubt the farm loses when anything is sold from it, whether meats or dairy products, when nothing is brought back to the farm. The" deterioration of the Iowa farm from milk selling would be corres pondingly slow because of the great ex cellence of Iowa soils, and with us the question is not so pressing. Still it is worth consideration by our best farmers whether it would not be wise to buy as much grain from these who do sell a would tftake good the loss by selling .meats, poultry, wool and dairy products We have in Iowa a class of farmers wh< will keep their acres good if they have ti buy dried blood, ground bones and meal equal to the loss by selling. Buyinj grain will make good all this loss mor readily than any other way, and unfortu nately there are too many of our neighbors who will sell grain.

One of the principal mistakes dairymen make at present is milking cows all the time, or nearly all the time. It is advocat d by the Jersey men, and they will quit eventually. Another mistake that class f men are making is in breeding. The heory is advanced by some that only northerns are injured by inbreeding in he direction of loss of fecundity. Sensible reedcrs will aim to feed and breed for onstitution. Prof. Henry finds no difference between ky corn fodder and silage for milk, only he cows eat more silage and milk more on rnore feed. This brings prominently up payability and digestibility. Suppose the dry fodders were steamed so the corn meal and bran would not adhere to t and be sent back for rumination. The Prof, also found that cows gave more milk on warm water than on ice water. The steamed fodder would help them also. Mr. Blakely.the sheep man of Grinnell, says his Merinos grow larger. This is inevitable on average Iowa pastures, and is the reason we often urge farmers to study their pastures before selecting a breed of animals of any kind to keep on it. Whoever has had Merinos and wants them larger has only to feed better, and if he wants to change from line wool sheep to heavier mutton sheep he can reach it by crossing it on the Merino. There are THE FABMKH AND HIS COLLEGE. The question of the education of the farmer and his children at the Agricultural college through short courses and long courses and regular college courses is a prominent one in Iowa at present. Every problem unsolved at aii institute raises the question. Every farmers' meeting resolves about it. Every farm paper discusses it. The necessity of closer economy in farm management demands have the animal get the value of it as a food. Corn meal, when fed alone, is not regurgitated because when it is swallowed it goes past the first stomach. Nothing that goes past the first stomach when swallowed is ever regurgitated. In order to have food left in the first stomach it must be of a rough nature to impress upon the nervous mechanism of the oeso- phagus to open it. J. W. W., D. V. M. THE SHEEP, SCIENTIFICALLY. Prof. Henry tells us of the loss of sheep to Wisconsin. He reasons that his State got the wrong sheep—the wool sheep that competes with the wool sheep on the ranches the world over. He sees the necessity for a different sheep—a mutton sheep— and without waiting to be set at it by the public demand he goes to work to demonstrate the profits of making mutton at his experiment station, and he succeeds admirably. His State lost forty per cent, of their sheep in ten years. Let us quote him a little: "So long as our ferms arc assessed at anything like necessity of maintaining them in geod condition will require all owners to at tend to their fertility very soon if they get interest on the investment and pay for their work. Milk selling, no doubt, runs down land faster than beef selling because so much goes off the farm, but the dairy is the best paying department of the farm and enables the farmer to buy grain from the profits. We notice that many dairymen feed their cows fat at dairying time, and sell to buy again. FOKTUNATE PKOl'LE. Tim LONDON TIMES says—and all law yers know it to be true—that the more than half a billion dollars of unclaimed fortunes in England Ireland Scotland and Wales belong to people in America whose forefathers emigrated from the old coun try. There are also large fortunes of the same class in Germany and other Euro pean countries. We have gained a nunv. her of such claims and have several in hand now which we expect to gain. If your ancestors came from across the sea There Arc 100,000 In the Big C»ty—Paris Has A Pretty Large Crowd of Them Also—They Belong to Clubs and Hate Savings Banks of Their Own. About a century ago Paris had only about fifty pickpockets, now tbo police reports show that their number has readied four thousand in tbe metropolis alone, and about ten thousand in the rest of France. These figures are nearly doubled at times of reviews, races, popular fetes, and exhibitions by recruits from abroad. But, singularly enough, they all come or have been trained in Great Britain. England is the cradle and botbed of pickpockets. It is a profession as firmly established as carpentering or bricklaying; it has its apprentices, graduates, professors, experts, and commercial agents. Novices are tattght to distinguish a Frenchman from, a native, a Russian from a German, a South American from an Italian; they are made acquainted with the slight but all important differences in each nationality in the cut of the clothes, the place of the pockets, the mode of carrying jewelry, watches, purses, or loose cash. When the pupils are supposed to have profited sufficiently by their education, they are dispatched at Christmas time to a certain suburb of London, where they are farmed out. The agent, who has* come to select a trio, puts them through their paces, and if they acquit then> selves creditably be engages them, gives- them clothes, board and special instructions, and takes them abroad to ply their trade under his management. As soon,, however, as their personality has become' inconveniently familiar to the police of the locality, they are returned and exchanged for a fresh set, under Che same conditions. The community numbers 100,000 in London, including women and children: their headquarters are in the obscure purlieus of St. Giles, Whitechapel, the Minories and the low lying wharves of the Thames. It is there that they hold their meetings, organize their detachments, deliberate on future movements, have their savings banks and clubs, and settle on the way of assisting those of their pals who are ill, shadowed or in prison. They form a regular association, like the housebreakers and shoplifters, from whom, however, they are quite distinct. AT WORK IN PAKIS. During their visit's in Paris, although operating in common, they do not dwell together, but are scattered all over the city, meeting only to share the spoils at certain specified moments, iij dark or borgne taverns and wino shops situated in the neighborhood of the Champs Elysees and the Grand Opera. The foreign, as well as the French, operators have their receiving houses, called in it. The work of other States for the farmers suggests it. The farmer has worked his way up to the necessity of scientific help and asks "what is our State school doing to help?" The reply is: "A broad and liberal education." The farmer asks "to what end?" The answer is: "Oh. to any end." The farm er presses the point and inquires: "Can not a liberal education at a farmers' college consist iu teaching just what farmers should know? Will not the student's mind expand in the study and experiments concerning feeding, breeding, cropping, harvesting, draining, dairying and their adjuncts?" He is told that such education is not fashionable. It is hayseedish, plebian, grangerish, disreputable, savoring of clods and barnyards and back woods and dunghills and the like. The farmer wonders who owns the State anyway, and keeps things moving, and pays taxes, and makes roads, and pays legislators and judges, and railways NEVER A FAILURE.

Farms cun JJQ hud on the ci'op plan, or long tiinu cash payments. It is not an uncommon thing to pay for a farm from the proceeds of one crop.

It is one, of the most fertile':tnd promising regions ia America not yet fully occupied. Ia the rush to the far west, however, this rich valley has been overlooked.

A ton of bran is not worth as much as a ton of oats, but while our western neighbors are robbing their lands to sell wheat, a, dollar's worth of bran is often worth more to feed than a dollar's worth of oats. The feeding power of oats in the dairy, according to Prof. Henry, is ten per cent, above bran. The market price determines which to buy. Just now oats is the dearest feed because a very short crop has raised the price, and cheap oats in the past mada it a favorable food for horses. It is interesting to note how carefully the foreign farmer's interest is looked after over there. SecretaryRusk is looking after our interests quite close just now, and it is also amusing to see how peppery it makes aur cousins across the hearring pond feel. They indulge in cheap wit at his expense and evidently feel annoyed that Americans have turned a new leaf. No doubt they apprehend that we will become as keen in time in trade as themselves. The Mark Lane Express wonders how we can expect to get live cattle into that country as long as we behave so about the fisheries. and towns, and supports schools and churches and universities with their law and medical dental and normal faculties. And after the State and the nation have endowed a college for him and the mechanic the efforts made go past him to educate everybody else with a broad and liberal education." tit for genteel profes sions, and some people wonder why the farmer is becoming restive about election time. The farmer will have more or less. The common school teaches too much. The farm institute and alliance and grange and club and farm press cause thirst akin to other peoples' who want to know more. There will be no peace in this regard until the school at Ames makes education relative to the farm its prime object. Every professor who turns up his nose must walk. Every trustee who is not in sympathy must stand aside. Other professors must keep hands off. Iowa, the greatest farming State in the Union, is so far behind some other States that the very knowledge of it is burning like a prairie fire. FEEDING COKN FOR PKOFIT. The corn raised in Iowa is consumed, to a great extent, in a very wasteful way their present value, and so long as there are great semi desert regions like the whole of the Rocky Mountain section of this country, portions of S. America and Australia, we must expect sharp competition in this production of fine wool, but these countries can not materially effect our mutton markets." To show farmers what may be done with mutton sheep he goes to work and experiments. He feeds lambs on skim milk, oats and green feed, and finds that the lambs can be made to take the place of the pigs about the dairy. A pen of lambs gain 100 pounds on 800 pounds of skim milk, 26 pounds of oats and 60 pounds of green feed. Valuing skim milk at 26 cents per cwt., oats 80 cents per cwt., and clover at $S per ton, the feed cost $3.30 to make 100 pounds of mutton. The lambs were crosses between Merinoes and Shropshire bucks. Other experiments follow that cost as high as $4.50 per 100 pounds gain. Then he took a pen of pigs and 645 pounds of sweet milk and 92 pounds of corn meal to make 100 pounds gain. Then he fed ewes and lambs indoors—soiling—and to get 100 pounds gain fed 2,823 pounds green clover, 478 pounds green corn, and 45 pounds of oats, costing $3.66 per cwt. He fed a pen of wether to get 100 pounds gain 884 pounds of corn silage, 158 pounds corn fodder, and 22 pounds of potatoes. This is grand. These foods are what all farmers can have. Many Iowa farmers are in despair over the loss of their entire hog stocks by disease. Here is a road to relief. Get some rout ton sheep and try to substitute the sheep for the hog. The farmer cart feed cheaper in his pastures than the experimenter can in his study. We are overdoing the write us all you know about it and inclose 25c for a reply.

A sharp and observant person might detect the pickpocket who shadows him with evil intent by the peculiar roving restlessness of the eye, of which even the most experienced ones cannot entirely divest themselves. The habit is contracted at the onset of their careers; imperative then, it becomes inveterate. The pickpocket embraces at a glance the particular article in a shop window calculated to attract the passerby, the conformation of the victim's pockets, the foot passengers aroxmd him and the quarter from which his bugbear, the "Bobby," is likely to appear. The English pickpocket rarely offers any opposition if caught in the act; he submits silently to be led off by his captor; only the women howl, thrash, sob, scratch and fight. It is the characteristic national coolness and lack of emotional irritability that contribute more than any physical aptitude to make the British pickpocket facile princeps in his art, and an object of envy and admiration to members of the professions in other countries.

The utter carelessness of the public facilitates the operations of the pickpockets to a rf.egreo which has often elicited from them expressions of withering contempt.
