We luive been mildly suggesting that all the cream be left in the uiilk that is made into cheese. Bennett has taken up the cudgel for full milk cheese, and we .can safely leave it with him. He will anake the clieeseniaker's life a burden while ho skims. The Chicago commission man arc sending out excuses for the "big four, 1 'saying there is no combination, and all that. Can people not read plainly printed tes timoiiy taken before congressional committees telling that they combine in buying and selling and get favors from railways that small shippers can not get? The Danish government sends instructors nlnut to instruct dairy people how to make butter, and the result is their butter sells higher in England tiian the homemade Hi-tide. The steps have been taken to establish a duiry KChool at the agricultural college thut will teach the young l!awk<-y<! how to mnkfi the best butter irom k'Wii products, "Wisconsin produced 3:3,000,000 bushels of corn last summer. Iowa produced 282,(1(10,000. What, the deuce would we do with the 200,000,000 bushels we have more than Wisconsin if nil our cows were the 800 pound cattle they boast about up in the pine barren State? It is, however, enterprising hi our northern neighbors to turn all their corn into fine butter and send to Iowa for more that we have not sens'-enough t;> make into winter butter. The Obio farmers Lave a central institute <it which they discuss the condition of affairs on the farm. We gather from their late meeting that low prices] have been the euuse of deteriorating theii cattle. They all urged better blood and most of them advocated early maturity They have not so much rough forage there as we have in Iowa. They fine most profit in feeding steers on the grass with meal. They complain of the grain seller there also. The same prioojples control the production of eggs and,«nilk in winter: warmth, suitable feed and^rppor .condition of the animal. Forethought and arrangement are necessary ,in iboth cases. Both pay well if well understood and well handled, because only ifew people so manage. Eggs and butter at (present prices pay re- were generally m ««*ably well, fortunes can be made in the production ,<ftf .eggs and butter from our grains at current prices. Winter dairying is understood by many of our people, and more ace noticing how it pays. Winter laying heofl are rare among us. A study of the bejj .stock will show too many old hens that .do not iay except circumstances are favorable. The early hatched pullet is the reliable winter lay er. Warm feed is necessary, and good quarters. Eggs pay such winters as this with such prices. We should produce all we require, and sell besides, because we mve the food, the birds require cheaper than our neigh hers. Few have been coin- jelled to study minor economies, relying on some one leading farm industry. IOWA COUN. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Kan sas and Nebraska produce about 162,000,000 bushels of corn. Iowa produces 2'62,000,000. The proper condensing of this crop is one of the most vital questions affecting our state. Years ago we predicted that our neigboring states must turn to the dairy, and some of them are now leading in that direction. They make human enterprise eke out a cold climate and scant grain crops. They make as much of Iowa grains as the farmers who sell them. A large per cent, of our 202,000,000 of bushels of corn is turned into pork and beef, a large amount is made into dairy products, a considerable quantity is made into glucose, starch and highwines, and still as much, perhaps, is sold as any of the states mentioned grows. This is slack we should take up. If we sell ten per cent, now, and should make it into butter in future winters, together with wasted corn fodder, what an income it would bring to Iowa corn raisers. At twenty flye cents per pound for winter butter, and an easy estimate of four pounds from a bushel of corn, the corn grower can have a dollar a bushel for his corn by putting his idle time in winter to the operation. This amount of corn meal added to what cattle merely live on in winterkill make a good milk giving ration. This is not going away from home to thrive. It is not problematical. It is winter like this newer prevents horses from getting plenty «f grass if there is plenty to get, while feafe pastures are of no more use for winter grazing here than elsewhere. Abundant pastures are si mp- ly those that are not Many Iowa farmers get no benefit fr6m an open winter like this, because they 'had all the grass eaten bare by thettme winter came. This is a vital question in economic horse growing. Many Iowa fcwimerk arc really over stocked, and In «*e interests o"f economy should either imp.novb their pas tures, enlarge them or dispose .of some of itheir animals. It does not f«iy to farm •without grnss at all seasoue. It is well •eettled that good pastures dev«Lope young 'horses better than stall feeding., and that horses are grown on grass mosteconomic- a%, besides, the farm improves while under grass. / KFFKCTS OF DIIY WKA^HKIl. Our river bottoms that afe in blue pas! ure lands ast.

We have much land in Iowa. All streams are liable rops have of this the bottoms of our to overflow in*wet times. All the sloughs and swahips, comprising one-fourth of the state,' perhaps, its very best land, is called intri valuable cropping where the blue grhss had a catch. Average seasons, such I as we are fiimiliar with, render these landp corapar atively profitless. The spring and summer overfilows spoil the grasses for graz ing purposes for weeks after being overflowed. Most of our higher boitoms can be saved from inundation by low dykes to keep the streams within bounds, and much bottom laud can be kepi dry by establish themselves before the drouths come, no drouths during the summer will kilt them. The tops may wither, but the roots will live, and growth will come when rain comes. In central Iowa wo have most certainty in sowing early on corn-stalk ground, and harrowing thoroughly. Wo never miss under such clr- cumstances. One reason why many farmers do not use cultivator is, they sow before the frost is out far enough to permit its use, and another reason is, on the stock farms where grains are never sold and rotation of crops followed, the land is so rich that oats, whiob. is used mostly as a nurse crop, will lodge if the ground is cultivated or plowed in the spring. Besides, it is generally seen that the earliest sown oats make the best crop. There are objections, however, to seeding down on stalk fields without plowing, Some tall weeds, such as thistles and rosin weeds, will grow that were not rooted out the previous year by the corn culti vators. The first requirement in seeding down is getting the seed in early—just as soon as the frost is out a few in- dies, even while it is too soon for oats, if _, , ,.

Peters, supervisors, L. D. Novell and J. Holts;. Minutes of January session read and after the following correction, were approved, viz: The appointment of L. D. Lovell as committee to view and report on location for a bridge petition- for by I. P. Harrison and others, over Prairie creek, between Sections 38 and 84, 95, 27. Said appointment having been made at the January session and omited from the minutes. At 1:30 M. O'llourke took his seat. spring is early the spring is late. If the the grass seed and oats, or barley, or wheat, may go together. When flax is used as a nurse crop it cannot be sown till frost ceases, as it is very easily killed. Where tame grasses are sown for immediate pastures, they must be sown on the earliest possible day and sown very heavily with a bushel of oats to the acre. Good pasture may be had in June by this means. The amount to the acre ot : grass seed depends entirely upon the time sown.,, the condition of the land and the purpose in view. For immediate pasture a peck of timothy and one of the clovers and other grasses combined is not too much. Forhay lots far less will do: A simply conveying the hill water! in open bushel of red clover to eight acres, and Breeders' and dairymen's and other in dustrial conventions are the feature of the age. It is noticeable how fast farmers are getting their "sea feel" and learu to speak easily and pointedly. It is also no ticeabJe that farmers illustrate well, showing a familiarity with authors. The art of presiding is being acquired, and the future- legislator is being evolved from the man of the farm—a legislator furnished forth through mental rubbing against bis neighbor. The farmer is educating himself rapidly the world over. This will clear away the vagaries we read of that possess some farmers. Few of the expressed nonsenses of the day are new. George's land tax theory is old ana grey-headed. The prop osttion to tax one class and loan to another is very ancient. The desire of one class of people to have another tread in their footsteps is as old as mankind. The management of simple honesty by sharp double-dealers traces to the Garden of Eden. It is emphatically Anglo-Saxon to sjt in the shade and boss the worker in the sun. The saving of corn continues. When it equals one-third of an average crop 700,000 bushels, then there will bo no cause for corn being ^ OOV6 averaRe pri ces. Those w no hold corn must estimate for themselves. Corn is dear, meats are Saving corn by less feeding wil being done right make more of our bors can. It is our along now. We can corn than onr neigh corn. We have the first right to it. Let us stop giving the profits of butter making to other states, t-o eastern states, to Europe. T'HK SELLING Or CJ11AIX. ^ The grain selling requires looking into. Farmers generally know better than to sell grain, but they do not all have stock to feed it to. Low prices for cattle have caused neglect of feeding, and sales of grain by men who do not own the land they cultivate, and care little whether the fertility of the soil is maintained or not. Owners of land who rent can well afford to look into this matter if they desire to keep their lands good. Our renting system is chargeable with spoiling of much land. We think the owners can well stock their farms with animals that will graze recuperating lands, eat up fodders and consume surplus grain. We always have renters, because young people must ditches to the streams. The uplandssub- ject to wetness from water tha[ rises in the edges of sloughs, can be tile drained, and no lands are so easily drained as ours. Our black prairie soils are mostly under- laid with a porous clay. Tiles laid four feet deep draw long distances in such soils. Where hard- pan is reached'at shallow depths, nothing but tile draining will insure the growth of crops in wet seasons, and tiles are very necessary in dry seasons over hard pan. Porous clay will naturally drain land of itself, but it takes so long to do it that crops suft'er meanwhile. Hard-pan soils that will not permit water to go through, hold it until it seeps along between the upper soil and the impervious subsoil. Iowa soils are rapidly rising in value. Thev are the people must cani) but low. have a tendency to make meats dearei and corn cheaper. We always sell when things ure above the cost of production and hold when they are belew. Corn may go higer, but we doubt it. Meats may go lower, but we doubt that. It is easy for dear products to go lower, and it is probable low priced products will go higher. The fanners' institutes where practical men tell how they do things, are the best schools for the people. A Floyd county farmer tells that he cuts corn fodder and hay and wets it, then sprinkles corn meal and bran over it, eight quarts of corn meal and six of bran being a day's feed. He gets a pound of butter a day from each cow, and sells the butter for twenty-eight cents a pound in New York. His name is Charles Howell. He is making money. He can not help it. Ilia cows cud over all the mealand bran, and it is all digested. We have been contending for years for just this very practice. The cows will do just about as well with & little more corn meal and without the bran. Many farmers can not get bran. Good clover hay uud well cured corn fodder or silage take the place of bran to a great extent. Hoots take the place of bran. So does oats when not too dear. We say these things of bran because it is not H product of every farm, while corn and fodder and clover are, and mangels may be. Winter dairying is paying well at present, and what one does all can do. Iowa provides the cheapest grains and grasses to make butter with of any state, and our farmers should be prompt to use begin, and poor there is no necessity that r-, nters flhould be destroyers, and if they havc uot means must be. The land owners can a9 weU own caltle and hogs to stock the farm as own the .and. The farm would require more at tention, no doubt, and the renter would require intelligence concerning stock, but the farm would be better every year and the renter would have more profit and prosper better. The present would be a good time to stock up the farm that has grown grain to sell whether by the owner or renter. A few young cows and a few young sows would soon fill the place up. The necessity is imperative on all thinner soils that begin to yield less. It is the only way to improve land in Iowa. There is certain profits in the dairy feature, as our cheap grains and grasses will make butter and cheese with profit than elsewhere. Besides, crops will be heavier, and fewer need be cultivated. best investment for surplus money at the present time. Their value can be enhanced still by making the acres subject to overflow and seeking entirely dry. The first thing necessary to good farming is to give steady, profits to reliable soil. Those soils that have lain wet all the past years are now dry, and wise owners will take steps to keep them dry. Corn will certainly grow on our creek bottoms before many years. All that is necessary to that end is to keep the water off them so they will warm up in season and so that growth will not be interfered with by stagnant water during the growing season. They have not been yielding paying crops until the recent drouths permitted grass of a valuable character to grow on them. It would be low them to return to their tion of unprofitable mud. the same of timothy. For pasturing the following year a heavier seeding than for hay is wise, but the condition of the land controls so much that the farmer must be the judge. It is safe to sow plenty, and for a permanent pasture sow all the grasses suitable to the soil, including half a bushel of blue grass to the acre. The young pasture is a good place to spread manure. It should not be heavily stock with grazers. Less seed will suffice on rotated land, as seed remains in the soil. We sowed pecks of everything in the early days and found them none too much. Such heavy seeding is not necessary now. On old clover farms in the east the clover came up promptly without sowing, while timothy had to be sow- It will be the same here as time goes eel. on. After examination of the report of the committee to settle with the Auditor and Treasurer, it was moved and carried that the report be accepted and placed on file. On motion S. C. Newcomb, road supervisor of Irvington township, was authorized to half plank the Mann bridge, and that the Auditor give an order for the plank on J. n. Queal & Co. The report of committee on bridge petitioned for by L P. Harrison et al. was heard and approved and Mr. L. D. Lovell was appointed a committee to build a 48 foot bridge and do the necessary grading on line between sections 33 and 34, Prairie township. Moved and carried that George II. Peters be a committee to buy two cars of piling from 10 to 15 feet in length to be delivered in Algona at 12* cents per foot, and the Auditor be authorized to accept and pay for same. Moved'and carried that George II. Peters be a committee to buy one cat- load of white oak bridge plank. On motion the appointment of G. A. Branson as deputy clerk was approved.

Farmers are getting off cheap this winter. Colts especially are being wintered cheaply. There is profit in horse raising when most of the growth is put on with grass, summer and winter. A mild win ter that permits of grazing puts extra money in the pockets of the horsemen, arrange as we will, it takes so much feeding to make so much growth, and economic horse growing consists in producing a horse for the average market cheaper than competitors. To this end we want good pastures that feed longer than pastures in other states. The length of the grazing season does not altogether control cheap production on the pasture. The amount of grass that an acre will grow is the first consideration, and the length of time a horse can get at it is the next thing to be estimated. Range horses can and do graze the' year round, but most of the time there is not plenty to eat. Our seasons for grazing vary. Where there is plenty of grass they are longer than where the grass is scarce. A fall of inow will not cover up a thick sward as ANI> COMMENTS. OIL CAKE. BUOUGII, IA., Jan, 26.—If it will pay to buy oil cake meal to feed fattening steers with corn, how much per head should be fed? Respectfully, J. E. FINLEY. Yes,.it will pay. Cattle need oilcake with corn. It keeps their blood cool and prevents scouring. You can finish better with it, and quicker. Begin with a pound a day, and increase to five gradually. If you feed it to pregnant cows or heifers they will abort. ABOUTION. SHADY GROVE, la,, Jan. 27.—Can you give me any information in regard to abortion in cows? Have had but one cow that went her full time this winter J. There is something unnatural in the premises. Either a cow has got hurt to begin with or you feed too heavy or milk too near the next coming in, or you have ergot in your hay, or your cows are chased, or they experience violent changes of temperature, or a diseased cow has entered the herd, or some such cause. Isolate aborting cows for months. Do not breed for three months after aborting. Give personal attention and study to your herd. Change usage that you suspect. Do not use the same male on regular as on aborting cows. This is a ready cause ol spreading. Feed off cows that repeat the malady. duced rates: Des Moinos Iowa Capital Io\v;i Homosteait..

Many farmers understand very well how to sow grass seed on their own farms so as to get a good stand who never think of writing down instructions for new beginners, and farmers living on one geological formation know well by experience how to get grass to grow, while they would be at fault using their experience elsewhere. Our farm organizations are makmgcommon property of individual experiences. The condition of the land is the first point to be considered. It the land is clean and i seed will secure a stand. If land . a wcl with thaws or rains, less will do than if it is dry. Spring plowing in a dry spring is no a safe condition unleess the land is rolled down solid again, because drouth will penetrate faster than young grass roots.
