Farm and Stock-Yard. JAMES WILSON, JiUtttorr. (Ideas are solicited from our farmer' readers. „„ Address to the Ed- James Wilson, Traer, Iowa,) Queries will lie answered. ItoY, ALGONA, IOWA, FEB. 18,1891. There arc three ways In which nations acquire 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 Kranklm. One fifth of the cattle cago arc exported. that go 'to Chi : Does 1'ich milk depend on feed or breed? is a live question i»i dairy circles that requires testing. The Canadian experimental farm people found that a hog would exist on raw and die on boiled mangolds. Experimenters in Wisconsin are get ting the cream into tho cheese all well enough. People can be honest when they try. The prospect of the Conger lard bill be coming a law is not very good The lob by has worked forward the Paddock bil that will do little good unless all the States take, action. One of the most sensible things the small farmer who has been selling grain can do is to get a few young 'heifers, by hook or crook, and breed a herd of milcl: cows to occupy his time in winter anc consume his crops at home. Making sugar from beets, mutton from sheep suited to it, cheese with the cream in, heavier and more stylish horses, more export beef and less low grade, are some of the tilings progressive farmers are aim dug at. The meat market must be better. The packers will soon have the bulk of the crop and will be bulls instead of bears as at present. The most of the thin stocl sacrificed because of dear grain, from the farms and the ranch thin stock, are gone Consumers must be supplied from UK feeding yards, and testimony is universa that less than half the customary feeding is being done. So prices will go up soon cr or later. It is the general testimony of dairymen who feed all the grain they raise and buj more, that their farms arc able to sustain more cows every year. Iowa has not tithe of the stock it will have at a futur day when better pastures prevail, bu thousand of farms have too much stoc now for the feed obtainable. We mus give closer attention to this feature o farming. The field is like a bank accounl If your drafts are to be honored 3 : ou ar to make deposits. ay big interest and are not wise to give t away for no more certain purpose than hat of making well-to-do widows after hey are gone. There is safe insurance. There is wise insurance, but there ia a world of foolish throwing away of money n this regard, and the subject is worthy f serious thought. A tour of neighboring states convinces us that the farmers of no state in the Unon are as well off as Iowa farmers who have taken care of their soils. This is seen in all directions. It is indicated by Lhe dwelling houses and farm buildings, !t is evidenced by the number of young people sent to high schools and colleges. :t is learned upon inquiry into the trans- 'er of indebtedness from the east to the west. It is seen in the enlargement of farms. It is proved by the growth of owns and villages throughot the rural districts. The churches proclaim it. The dress of the people shows it. The paint on the houses suggest it, All came from the grandest soil and the most favorable climate, every thing considered, in tho na tion. What man has done man can do. There is no royal road to wealth and comfort shut against any farmer, but those who shun the profitable ways or refuse to enter them, may not, will not thrive. in the land, but such is the case. Minnesota and Ontario take the boy from the common school and give him an equivalent of our high school training, which certainly results in directing him toward the farm as a vocation. But Iowa has thousands of farmers who are not satis- fled with a highschool training. They want the college course on top of it, and because no agricultural college has given it young people ehun them. It must be realized that of all classes the Iowa farmer needs the most thorough education, and that they will'bave it for their young people. If the agricultural college arranges for it, plenty of young people will take advantage of it. The complete course will comprise a preparatory school and a college course, and the graduate will be informed on all the sciences that relate to the farm. This is being aimed at now. Great expense is the keenest spur to better farming. In old times tho log house did not need such upholstering as the palatial residence of this day. We made a bee to build a bridge. Now contracts are let and we give money instead of time, and the changed conditions require us to turn our time into money, and taxes consequently grow as we' em ploy agents. A world of revolution has been brought about by millions who persuade dear woman that she looks better in an imported bonnet and gown than in a sun bonnet of her own make and a frock of her own construction. We don't believe it, but madam does, and so the money goes to please her, as it should. It is a long story, the telling how public expenses and family expenses pile up. The farmer dresses better himself, and the boys are not satisfied with the clothes of mother's making. Expenses in every direction increase unavoidably. Some few hold onto the disuse like grim death and get rich faster than the average. The many must earn more, must make the farm pay better to meet growing demands. Marcs, cows, ewes arid sows are com ing toward the lying in pens. Renlein ber that fat-forming foods are not good fed exclusively. The clovers, corn fodders, some roots and a little oats are all preferable to corn. If less grain is fed, more hay PV other fodders will be eaten. The feed of pregnant animals should be generous but judicious. Exercise is imperatively necessary. Yery hard work is not good for mares. We believe the ewe should seldom sec corn, and very little grain of any kind. Our hogs suffer, without, question, from loo much corn feeding. Corn is the easiest grain to provide, and the temptation to use it is very strong. The Canadians in the province of Ontario, have reduced institutes among the farmers to a system. Applications are made in the fall of the year to the president of the college farm at Guelph, who divides up the province into districts, and during vacation he sends one professor, one botanist and one practical farmer to each district to help the farmers hold their institutes. The Dominion gives $25 to each organized institute of fifty members, und the county gives $25 more and pays $3.50 a day to each farmer assisting the professor and botanist. It also pays the traveling expenses of the professors. $5,000 in all helps out 100 institutes. Practical farmers get help iu technical directions from the college men. Iowa might get hints from our Northwestern neighbors. Hoard's Dairyman never lets an opportunity slip to hit the cow of generous pastures a lick. It harps upon the "dairy farm" as if small size and the results of slim keeping were attibuted to anything but scant pastures. Does the Dairyman not know that if the Channel Islands had had heavy pastures, and if Ayrshire bad heavy pastures, nnd if the mountains of Kerry and Switzerland had heavy pastures that the breeds of cattle from those places would be heavy cattle? If our Northern light cif !'he dairy would frankly admit that the cattle of the bleak pastures of Europe are just the cattle for the sandy barrens and pine clearings of Wisconsin, it would state a fact. The heresy 'of the Dairyman only does mischief when it teaches the farmer who cannot possibly keep his cattle small if he feeds gen erously. The rich pastures of Iowa will not tolerate an eight hundred cow. It is in point to tell how the growing enlarging cow is to be continued a milker and still be the machine through which the grout values of Iowa grains and grasses are to be converted into beef. They have a mutual admiration society up north, the possession of which is "small cows." We can't "belong" down in Iowa because the cattle would not stay small. jmSTKOYING AND MUIIJDING Ul'. Speculative writers on agricultural sub- j ects like to romance about the future development of the Northwest, the millions it will sustain, and all that. It will sustain many more people, but not with present methods. If present ways are not rapidly improved and deterioration of soil stopped, the limit of production will soon be reached. The tile drain is about to make the greatest addition to production that will be made in our day. After that is accomplished attention will seriously turn to the preservation of what we have. The rate at which the continually cropped lands grow poorer is greaterthan many suppose. The notice served by the late dry seasons that the desert is not reliable, turns back upon more Eartern lands the responsibility of producing for increasing population. The nation does not yet realize the full meaning of no farms beyond central Kansas and Nebraska. Investors intuitively seek lands in Iowa, and lands are rising steadily in value. There is sad lack of sustaining methods among our farmers. They do need to learn more economic ways very much—many of them. So many who plow and harvest and sell what will sell readiest do not realize that they are like the mouse m the cheese. We have two powerful forces overtaking the capacity of the prairies—increasing population and soil robbing. To meet these are two others—better methods and the tile drain. It is a nice question to tell how the race goes on. A few years will see the last ready dry acre plowed that needs no ditching. Only higher prices for produce or cheaper labor will reclaim all the best lands in Iowa. Illinois has drained her wet lands, and all are pro ducing. We are doing a very little. Quite heavy immigration is arranged for into newer counties of the State to farm new lands, but we doubt if the addition to our crops from new lands more than keeps up the decrease on lands that are still being robbed. We are strongly of the opinion that population and soil rob bing will gradually overtake recuperative forces. Then we must farm better or somebody will go hungry. ate a rainfall of one-half inch from an acre. This is a very ordinary rain and only a small part of what generally falls in the spring. A field of* forty acres would require 180 tons, or a good train load. This Is only for one rain, while those of the spring months would require many times as much. Observation and experiments have shown that a drained soil is, on an average, about ten degrees warmer at seven inches below the surface than an undrained soil at the same depth. Heat Is necessary to the germination or sprouting of seeds and the growth of plants. Seeds that will sprout and thrive in a warm soil would rot In a cold, damp one, and very often the increase of temperature caused by drainage raises the conditions through the critical stages into those of life and growth. Crops are hastened in their growth by ft warm soil, make a more healthy and larger growth and mature earlier and in better condi tion than they possibly could do in a colder one. The constantly higher temperature of drained soils is doubtless, in a great measure, the cause of the larger yields of crops grown on them, and this alone, in many cases, would amply repay the cost of drainage. D. W. STOOKBY. 060 650 QUKSTIONS ANSWEHKD. AS TO MIiUE GIUSS. FAIKKAX. IOWA, Jan, 23.—In discuss ion in the Swine Breeders' Meeting on the 22d inst.. brought out by remarks of Dr. J. C. Traer, of Vinton, on "Best Grasses for Swine," it was contended by many that what we are wont to call blue grass is not the genuine Kentucky blue grass, but June grass, an inferior grass to that of the Kentucky variety. From what I have gathered from your frequent references to blue grass and its merits in your agricultural notes, I had come to be lieve we had the genuine article. Will you kindly set us aright on this matter through the Farm and Stockyard? Very truly, GEO. H. HOADLBY. We sent to Kentucky for genuine blue grass and sowed eighty acres with it sixteen years ago, and can not see the difference between it and what grows on other parts of the farm. We noticed blue grass first growing along the roads where it had dropped from movers' wagons that had come from the East. It spread where stock carried it. Bottom lands saved for wild hay where stock did not graze have no blue grass to this day, while all lands pastured have it. It does not grow spon taneously. The seed came here from the East. We can see no difference in the blue grasses in Iowa except those that came from different conditions. DKAINACJE. To the Agricultural Uditor : DKAISAOlil INCttKASES ACHEAOI2.

The experiment station is managed ia the direct interest of the farmers. Every crop ia reported and every animal tells a talc. The boys do all the work on the farm, iu the dairy and feeding barn. They have all the breeds of animals valuable to their soil and climate. They do not really believe you wlieu you tell that not cue acre of corn in twenty is cut for fodder. They have no faith in keeping breeding animals healthy without roots. They can uot grow corn, so they grow peas. Their experiments are not so valuable to us because their feeds are so different. They cut up fodders of every de scription and mix them with meal for fattening and growing stock. Student labor is compulsory. T I'ASTIUIKiS. Iowa farmers who gradually grow into a system of management that suggests itself, little dream of the many advantages our soil giyes them. We can have permanent pastures, many other people living on poorer soils can not. Everywhere that lands require mauuring permanent pastures are doubtful. Soils that leach, soils that have impervious sub- soils so near the surface that surplus waters can not escape, kill oil grasses frequently. Thin soils require re-seeding and have many other drawbacks not attached to most soils. Iowa soils will grow most of the tame grasses perpetually, blue grass, white clover aud some others certainly. Where the farmer must plow up, enrich with costly fertilizers, and re-seed periodically, great expense is the result, besides, hilly lands, wood lands, road sides, and odd places about the farm do not grow grasses of their own accord. The normal condition of every Iowa acre that does nothing else is to grow a heavy crop of fine grasses. Is the insurance investment as usually made wise? Should the man without capital deprive himself of accumulating by paying aunualy his surplus for what he can only realize upon at death? Cau great corporations invest money at as high rate as poor men have to pay for it? Old age and misfortune intervene and and stop annual payments, when policies lapse and the life tax is lost. Companies break up and the insurance is a dead loss as wall as agreapprovocation. can KDUCATION FOB THE FAKMEK. This subject agitates many minds at present. States have acted differently regarding it. Minnesota takes the young farmer from the common school and gives him a two years' course, six nienths iu each year, and thinks that will do. Wisconsin has great sucess with a three months' course. Michigan has four years as a course with very little agriculture in it, but requires the youth to labor on the farm while really being prepared to teach the sciences. The Canadians also require manual labor, but teach only what relates to the farm during two years, having a post graduate year for the bright boys. The Iowa college has coaxed as much agricultural education as possible into a four years' course for years gone by, that has evolved into a scientific course. All these suggests the whole. Few really believe the farmer requires a finished education ia lines pertaining to t&e farm that will A nckftlftr M l-^S s ?r*5iWir ^^ the best advantage. Tile drainage increases the number of available acres by giving possession of the sloughs, bogs and ponds, besides the space occupied by open ditches and turn rows on each side of the waste land. Farm land is valued here at about $50 au acre, yet much of it is comparatively useless that might be made very productive by drainage at a cost not to exceed one-fourth to one-half this sum. DEEP DBAINS GIVE 5IOHE FEEDING (JllOUNP FOB HOOTS. Roots of our cultivated crops will not grow down into the water nor into a soil that is saturated with water, but in mellow, drained soil they penetrate from four to six feet ia search of food. They require a loose, mellow soil with air in the spaces between the particles of soil. A. soil four feet deep has twice the root pasture that one only two feet has. Much good soil is lost by laying shallow drains which leave the lower soil useless because full of water. Deep drains pay best. "There are farms underneath our farms that we know nothing of until we under- drain," says Emerson. 1>11 AINAGE LENGTHENS THE SEASON. "Burn a candle at both eudsanditis soon gone." A summer season that is ushered in amid cold, wet days in May, and closed by early frosts is too soon gone for successful farming. Tile drainage lengthens the seasons at both ends. Drained land is warmer, thaws earlier and snow melts about two weeks earlier than on similar ground not drained. It dries sooner in the spring and after a rain and can therefore be worked and planted earlier and no time is lost in waiting for wet places in the field to dry. Being warmer seeds sprout earlier, crops grow faster, yield better and mature earlier, thus being out of danger from early frosts. Being warmer the early frosts so destructive on low, wet land are delayed aud reduced in intensity. DRAINAGE WA11MS THE SOIL.
