Address to the EA-- itor, James Wilson, Truer, lown.j : ALGONA,.!OWA, Jan. 14, 1891. There are tlirca ways In which nations ac-j quire wealth. First, by conquest, which ls ! robbery, second, by commerce, which Is usually swindling, third, by agriculture, which Is tlie true ami principal source of national wealth.—lienjamln Knuikhn. Those who feed young, well-bred cattle this winter will bavo the most profit. Tbe British farmetis are anxious to have •chairs of agriculture established in their colleges. 10,000 bushels of Irish potatoes were shipped to New York in November, while the people there are said not to bave enough. The general opinion erf ifarmers is that manure should be spread on the pasture straight from the stable. Hot heaps waste Foot .rot in slmep will not be general in Iowa if the imported animals are free from it, as it annoys moat su wet soils and ours is generally dry in summer and winter. Canary seed is getting into favor as a food for horses. It improves the wind and improves the skin—sleeking the hair. It is food for people in the Canary Is lands. It is too dear for general use except as a tonic. The palatability of mouldy hay is improved in foreign countries by steaming. We read of 100 to«s of poor bay being cut line, tramped solidly by horses, and steamed to clear it of fungoid growths. The mass was sweetened. There were 3,345 pedigreed Shorthorns sold in Great Britain and Ireland during 1890, by public auction, that averaged $147, and 1,155 Polled Angus pedigreed cattle that averaged $100, so says the Mark Lane Express. The prices arc a little above last year's for both. $3 «RT F. anil other specialties for Gentlemen, Ladies, etc., are warranted, and ao stamped on bottom. Address W. Li. DO V 6!

It produced '..iO,000,000 bushels of wheat besides other cereals in Ib'JO. Farms can !>.: had on tbu crop plan, or long; time cash payments. It is not au uncommon thing to pay for a farm from the proceeds of one crop. It bas all of the advantages of an old country in the shape of school, church, market, postal and railway facilities, and all tbo chances of a new country in the way of cheap lauds, rich soil, and increase, iu values. It is cue of the most fertile and promising regions in America uot yet fully occupied. Iu tbc rush to the far \yest, however, this rich valley has been overlooked. It bus room for a milliou more people. Write to F. I. WHITNEY, tit, Paul, Mian., for particulars. Publications seut free. A fanner out west thinks our writings are for big farmers. The eignty-acre and quarter section farmers are always in our mind. We begun with forty and by practicing what we preach made another for-^ ty, aud I hen made these two earn others. True, we did network on the eight-hour plan, nor did we waste fodders that would grow young animals nor sell corn for others to feed, nor use grade sires, nor shut eyes and cars to tbc advice of expo rienced men, nor refuse to take farm papers. TJ2P concensus of opinion at the breeders' in°' c 'i' n S was tnal barley is a more profitable crJ,'" 1 than oats > a better cr °P to seed down with as .** docs not shade the young grasses as much as oatS.- Objections to barley were raised by pTohibi- bitionists. These indicate ignorance of its feeding values. It is a strong food and halt' the weight is equal to oats. Many horsemen steam it, others soak, it and some grind it. Nobody need have onscientious scruples about growing barley on account of the uses it is put to. Beer, nowadays, is made of glucose. We have long felt the want of farm books written by Iowa men from the western standpoint, treating everything pertaining to the farm. N. B. Ashby has given us all that deals with the farmer mid his relations to the federal and state government. He calls it "The Rid die of the Sphinx." He treats the railway problem, money, taxation, the land remedy, co operation aud organization. It will richly pay the reading. Ashby is a worker aud an investigator. The book is entertaining and instructive. Its chief merit to us is, the author looks at things from the western farmer's standpoint. He is at his best when dealing with the disadvantages at which the producers work, quotes from many of the world's political economists to approve or condemn, and excites surprise that so young a man should handle this complex subject with so much ability. Our British cousins are badly out of humor. They are sulky. They resort to all kinds of subterfuges to make themselves bolieve we have cattle plague here still, and that it would be very wrong to permit our "beasts" to enter the Queen's dominions. They quote reports of our bureau of animal industry of the past to prove that disease still exists. J. II. Sauuders, who is over there representing our country, is having a hot newspaper :ontroversy with a London alderman about it. Two things stick in the British crop—the fishery dispute and the tariff act. They wonder how Americans can ask free admission for their cattle while they stand out about Behring Sea and pass acts taking away their tin trade. Our cattle are now free from disease, and they will go there or some of John's things will have to stay at home. The farmer is looking over the shoulder of the secretary of state aud expecting action regarding the steer in England and the hog in Germany, and the farmer has come to stay, with both eyes open. KUKAL LIKE. Senutqr Parrott, lof Waterloo, has surprised the State by creating a new farm journal called Rural Life. He has called to his assistance Messrs. Gabrilson, Mun- ccy, Bennett, Payne, Coffin and others- all of them able farmers and writers. The new paper, is handsome in make up, and the editors of the different departments treat of practical farm affairs. We see no rcasonlwhy this paper should not become a prominent factor in Iowa rural affairs.^ Good writers on farm matters but give relish for more. We predict good to Iowa and success to Matt Parrott. THK COW AGAIN. It is proclaimed by some "way up" dairymen that breed has more to do with a.good cow than feed. Some of the best milch cows we ever saw were natives, All ••the pedigreed cattle >in Iowa could find •plenty of grass on one Iowa county, so why -talk breed in the caw 'to the average ifarmer? We advise tfasmefs to select •their coming cows frota ithe best milking natives and grades, au4 .use a bull conforming to their pastures and purposes. Iif exclusive dairying i* contemplated, cet a bull from a dairying breed by all means. If beef has a share in the future plans, get a bull from a beef and milk family. It is generally held 'that there is no such family, but those who hold it never milked many cows or fed many steci<e. There is much wrong philosophy in the world promulgated by side-walk farmors, We know better. For thirty- five years uorth Tama has had gaod milking cows whose calves made fine beeves, but the .cows have been milked an,d the steers have been fed. We remember the old Ayrshire, slim little cows oa poor pastures, but fine milkers. Improved pastures grew them to Shorthorn proportions—fine milkers, still flue feeders, and tbc calves fiue beeves. The average Iowa farmer on deep, rich soil can have the the beef and milk qualities combined. Few others can. The great danger to our Iowa fnrmer is that he absorbs philosophy based on conditions elsewhere- scant feed, colder or drier climate, farther north, hyperborean, farther south- scorching. North and south of us they depend on us for feed, and in return would give us advise. Depend on breed while they themselves depend on feed from Iowa. Advise with your neighbors. A NEW, TIGHT, SAFK F15NCK. Wood woven between two smooth wires is generally getting favor as a hog and horse fence. It confines hogs certainly, and it does not injure horses. Our white willow sawed up would answer admirably for the purpose, The three barbed wires for cattle, will not soon be superseded, but it takes too many of them and perpetual tightening and watching to confine hogs. Few farmers escape more damage to horses than the difference in price between barbed wire aud wood and wire. We notice good combination fences where the slats are only two feet long with two barbed wires stretched above. This makes a fence that will turn most animals. Another use the woven picket and wire will soon have to tighten the fence around stubble fields so that hogs and sheep can be confined to clean things up. Indeed we regard the new invention as very timely. Hogs confined on a morning glory patch will c'ean it of its roots effectually. Again, the hogs fattening can be confined on a few acres of corn at a time, saving the husking and enriching the lands. This is used abroad for feeding off root crops with sheep, and no way of applying uui nurc equals it. The fence is shifted as more space is required. Iowa has more wood than when it was settled, and it is just the kind to use for this purpose. Any kind of wood will last above ground. A rod of willows will make ten, twenty or thirty rods of this fence, according to its age. Iron is now quite cheap, and with home-grown wood close fences are practicable. This kind of fence material is now made on the Mississippi of water elm, and up north from pine. We need small factories all over the State. QUESTIONS AXSWKKKJX LICE ON SIIEBr. Mrs. S. B. Gibson, of Algona, wants to know what will kilt lice on sheep. All animals that are infested with lice should be well wet all over with kerosene emul sion. We would not advise treating a sheep in this way on a cold day, but on a warm day wet them all over by parting the' wool and applying the emulsion. Keep in the barn for ten hours afterward. Kerosene emulsion is made by dissolving one-half pound of common hard soap in one gallon of water by boiling, and while boiling hot removing It from the stove and adding two gallons of kerosene. Agitate the whole briskly for a few moments, and when a creamy froth is formed dilute with six gallons of water and it is ready to use. Sheep should be dipped in a tank of this after being shorn. It kills all kinds of lice. J.- W. W. DEHOllNINtl AGAIN. CEDAW RAVIUS, la., Dec. 30.—I note a question and answer regarding injury done to cattle by dehorning. I have heard that the injury is chiefly to milch cows, the nerves iu some manner being connected with the milk-giving qualities, and the dehorning affecting those nerves. Is there anything in this theory ? L. S. MEKClIANt. We think that dehorning like many other crazes among the farmers has had ita day. It is the sign of a good, strong constitution to see a good, heavy horn. Dehorned cattle do not thrive as well as though they were not dehorned. They crowd together in summer to keep away from flies. The ones in the center of the bunch get so hot they sweat badly. We have known steers to make but little growth during the summer that were dehorned. From what we know of the nerve system of the cow we do not think there is any special injury to the nerve governing the milk-giving organ as it has no connection with the operation. To dehorn cattle not only cuts off the milk supply, but kills the animal all over. It never is the same after it. Farmers that do it once hardly ever do it again. The ambition of the animal is impaired. The industrious animal is the best milker. J. W. W. (iOV. liOIKS AND XHK FAIiAI. We think there vie sides to this controversy tnat require the attention of practical farmers. The Governor estimates farm wages at seventy cents * day. That is, we think, about right if it be understood that board, lodgings and washing are included. Farm hands that board themselves get $25 to $80 a month with free house,fuel add a cow kept. The hired hand gets as near $1,60 A day, or its equivalent, as wo can estimate it, but the farm pays the half of It nearly in kind. The cost of growing a bushel of corn is put at twenty two cents, which is practically about the cost for the grain, depending upon the land it is grown upon. Com is grown on sod land for less, and old ground for more. We would put the cost of growing a bushel of corn at twenty cents, fodder not saved, con sidering all the lands in the State, but this is the cost of the grain where the fod der is comparatively wasted. If it costs $8 an acre to grow the corn $2 more will take care of the fodder, making $10 an the fodder is conceded by our progressive farmers to be worth as much as the grain, which makes the cost of growing a bushel of ear corn ten to eleven cents. No farmer in Iowa can afford to pay $1.50 a day to grow a crop of corn for the grain alone and sell it at an average of twenty-two cents a bushel. No farmer in Iowa can grow corn to sell, waste the fodder and pay any wages. The Iowa farmer who grows corn to sell seldom hires help, and the farmer who hires help seldom sells corn. Tbe corn sellers are renters with short leases who have not animals to eat their corn, or young fellows beginning life who have not arranged the depart ments of the farm, or people just from other locations in life who do not understand economic feeding, or people who lack capital to buy animals in new sections of the State. Iowa sells little corn compared with her total crop. The crop in 1889 was 330'000,000 bushels. We doubt if ten per cent, left the State. The crop in 1390 is not much more than half of that of the year previous, and the State will buy more feed than it sells. Corn selling in Iowa is by one neighbor to another mostly, but at a fifth more than market prices in most cases. Just now the Chicago buyers pay thirty six cents in central Iowa, while the local buyers pay forty cents and upwards. The Iowa corn crop helps to make the 173,000,000 pounds of butter the State sells and that used in home consumption. It goes to feeding the 6,000,000 hogs we raise, to finishing the 400,000 home-raised beeves we sell, mostly exports and to rearing the youag horses we aupply the East with. We can not get State statistics of horses sold, but we know the Traer station ships $100,000 worth every year of them. The Governor is right about selling corn being a losing business, where the farm is devoted to growing corn for sale, but the large majority of Iowa farmers do not sell any, and those who do sell merely give the profits of condensing to their neighbors at home or abroad. What goes out of the State is raised at a loss to the soil of Iowa. The rapid improvement among Iowa farmers regarding economic farming is making more of the grain crops every year. We raised in the United States 2,200,000 bushels of corn in 1889 and only exported $36,701,443 worth. The crop of 1890 was so much less that we will export still less of it. Our rural districts settled, and our towns now get the increase of population. The sale of com by the Iowa grower is vital to him. If the controversy raised by our chief executive causes the corn grower, who sells it, to reflect upon what he Icses and turns him to the cow, the sheep, the horse, to poultry and the hog for a market, good will come of it. We are not discussing the political economy feature of this question. Abler editors on both sides will attend to that. Corn fed to our dairy cows, to young draft horses, to high grade steers in connection with hogs, brings more than twenty two or forty cents either, and our progressive farmers iu every township iu the State feed corn this way. These farmers are prospering and they comprise a large majority of Iowa people. The corn seller is ruining his acres and can have no profit one year with another. _____ A HINT TO THK COLLKGIS AT AMES. Dairymen in this and other lands get the highest prices for their products who know best how to manipulate milk. This requires study and co-operation between tho practical and scientific. The best methods of making butter and cheese have been wrought out by practical men who have learned what the scientist has discovered. The British and Danish, abroad, and the Wisconsin people in our land have carried dairying nearer perfection than we have in Iowa. Practical men in Iowa have reached as satisfactory results individually as their competitors anywhere, but as a state we have no head center that stands as a beacon light for the state in this regard. Our dairymen recognize this and ask the college farm authorities to do the scientific part of the work for them. If that college turned out a class of young men and women every year who could so manage cows as to get milk in paying quantities and so manage milk as to get the highest price for butter, they would be in great demand as educators in this direction. Every one of them would get a big salary as a teachertUn dairying wherever cows are milked throughout the world, or they could milk their own cows ajid make it pay, Instructions such as educated dairymen can give are in demand the world over., Only a small per cent, of our but ier brings the highest price. Again, we are on the eve of sugar making from beets. The one thing lacking is skill, start a thousand plants in Iowa, but very few who know how to manipulate the beets so as to make a success of it. If every boy and girl who 1 had graduated at Ames had expert knowledge in this direction, they could be all employed at good salaries. Iowa grasses and grains and soils and climate differ from those of other states and nations. Every county in Iowa wants farmers' institutes to discuss the uses of raw materials and how to best feed them. If all tho students who ever graduated at Ames were experts in this direction there is demand for them now to go to tho thousand farm institutes to be held in Iowa and tell what they know. They would be well paid for it. These are some of the things Iowa farm ers want taught at the college endowed by Congress and the state to do just such work for the farmers of the state. The literary education of the young people should be just what will enable them to comprehend the paactical, and no more. Iowa has a multitude of places where a literary educated man may be had. If such a course of study were instituted, graduates of literary schools would desire to have it. The diploma of our high schools should enable a youth to enter. Good work is being done at Ames in the veterinary and mechanical courses on this very plan. Why not iu the agricultural course? No graduate from that course as it is now arranged can teach dairying or sugar making. The course is literary. It may be said that the students desire a literary training and do not wish knowledge of milk and sugar. Very good. Iowa has plenty of colleges ready to give it. The presumption of Iowa farmers is that enough young farmers do desire such an agricultural course as we have hinted at. Suppose the farmers of Iowa should control the legislature some day and elect a board of regents for the state university who would turn the medical school into a dairy department, the law school into a veterinary department, and the dental schools into a cooking department. That would change the purpose of Congress and the slate of Iowa iu establishing a university, but no more so than turning the agricultural course into a literary course. We have the kindest regard for the present board of trustees, and the highest respect for everybody there who works in the direction intended by those who endowed the college. If there is a trustee who thinks the college was endowed for literary work, we assure him the farmers of Iowa think otherwise and will have it otherwise. VOUTUNATK VKOPliE.

The only instrument needed is a wooden toothpick or match, made sharp at the point. Hard wood, howevef, is preferable. The sufferer stands in a good light and rests his body and head against a door, post or some fixed object. With the thumb and a finger the operator holds the eyelids sufficiently apart to see plainly the front of the eye and also to prevent winking. If the speck be on the cornea it may be difficult to see it, and it can then only be found by changing the direction of sight until a favorable position is secured. The most difficult part of the business to to have the inexperienced person fix the sight on some object and hold the eye perfectly quiet. If this can be done only for a few seconds the operator approaches the moto with the point of the stick, still holding the'eyelid, and with gentle passes and gradual advances soon touches tho speck and brings it away. Tho transparency of the eyo makes it necessary to approach the surface with care, or it will be reached before it is expected. If the mote bo hidden underneath the upper eyelid the eyelash should be gently raised, while the upper part of the lid is held downward with the stick. When turned the stick is withdrawn and the lid ia held in this position by the eyelash. Where iron is worked particles of metal are sometimes allowed to remain iu the eye for several hours, when they seem to rust fast and cannot bo removed by a stick. Iu such cases the point of a penknife blade, made quite sharp, is used, and if it is magnetized so much the better.—New York Commercial Advertiser. IJcar at tho J'ricu. A change of mind has often occurred after the marriage bans have been published. A clergyman tells recently oi! a man having put in the bans, and after they had been twice published asked if he might substitute the name of another girl for the one first entered, adding by way Of explanation: "I think she will suit mo better in the long run." On being told that the change could not be effected unless the first bans were withdrawn, others substituted and the fees paid a second time, also that the full interval, including three Sundays, must elapse before the marriage could be celebrated, the man hesitated. "Do you mean to say that I should have to begin all over again?" he asked. "Certainly," was the reply; "the bans must be published three times in tho names oi' th persons who are actually to ba married '•And must I pay all over again if I ha the other girl?" "Yes," said the clerg man. "Well, I call that too bad." The candidate for matrimony remaine for some moments in a brown study, then broke out with: "Then I'll stick to the first girl. I'm not going to pay twice over for anybody." He was married during the following week in accordance with this decision, evidently considering the proposed subsititnrion would, be too dear at the price of double fees. This did uot say much for No. 2, as would be bridegrooms are usually of all people most inclined to be liberal.— Ladies' Treasury. A Siuijilo l)o~ Story. An exchange tells of tho peculiar appetite of a dog owned by a Butte City merchant, whoso latest exploit was to> swallow a diamond stud, lunch on a roll of greenbacks, and, by way of a dessert, thoughtfully masticated a pair of British half hose. Evidently this is no ornery purp, still for marked epicurean eccentricities it cannot compare with a saf- fron-liued bird dog we once owned. This thoroughbred animal developed delicater, tastes quite earh r in life. On one occasion while we were absent from the house he plundered a cage containing a pet canary bird, killed the fluttering inmate, plucked the feathers and then laid the bare little body in a frying pan over a gas stove, where it was left until the skin turned a beautiful brown. We camo back just as she intelligent canine was adding the proper proportions of pepper and salt to the cooked morsel, when he bolted the meal hastily for fear of interruption and then scooted through the open door. After remaining away for two days he returned with a fine young pullet in his mouth, stolen from a neighboring hen- nery, and this he placed at»our feet, wagging his tail and winking his eyes significantly, as much as to say, "Thisis- to square the roast canary bird." It really was a very tender chicken.—Sam. T. Clover iu Chicago Herald. Cheup.
