Jfttm anfc Stock JAMAS WILSON, Editor. (fldeas are solicited from our farmer reader*. Queries will be answered. Address to the Editor, fames Wilson, Truer, Iowa.) knows what peas will not rust ? 'fflbe best hay is made by cutting when iho 'bloom is on. The,tamo grasses sown in season this epuing.nre coming finely. Yon ean not cultivate the corn crop too «tnch ;if ;you do it in season. Cultivate potatoes as much as corn, and you >\rill got a full crop. If you have Canada thistles this is tho time to remove them. Prevent any growth above ground. A ground squirrel likes meat as well as bread, und eals cut worms. Feed him Soaked corn and let him live. Tho skunk livws on grubs and worms; ]ie will take a, chicken. Protect the chickens and let him eat the grubs. Thieves dt> fall out. The Big Four and the Stock Yards Company, of Chicago, disagree and new yards are proposed. A very pretty right is on between the Stock Yard Company, of Chicago, and the IMg Four. Co it husband, go it bear. The mole lives on grubs and is one of nature's balances. He does cut paths in the land, but is one of our friends. Let him live. If you drain level land be sure of your outlet, and be sure you arrange for fall enough. We suspect that many tile drains under such circumstances are silted up. The inter-state commerce commission has ordered reduction of railway freight rates in two instances. The first case has gone to the courts. Our courts generally can be trusted, Missouri legislators propose the separation of tho agricultural college from the university. Weothink there are other ways of furthering agricultural education. Wo would end-foi-end the arrangement, and make the university serve the farmers, which it would do if proper steps were taken. Have you patches of morning glory that have grown so thick and close that nothing else, will do any good? Try enclosing hogs on thorn with the new wire and picket fence. The hogs will kill every vestige of the roots and summer fallow the land for 3-011. We have known this to be done. Next, year you will get a crop. The spring lias been all that the farmer could desire. Iowa weather is generally superb. We are fairly on our feet again. Prices good, weather good, prospects good. Let us profit by the mistakes and over-sights of the past. The stock must have grass enough in the heat of summer. It will never do to scrimp them. Better give them all the hay lots than that. We must not breed inferior stock. Let them do that'Who can not do better. Iowa farmers can. Get rid of poor milk cows, and under-sized brood mares. Shun scrub stallions. Save, the hay in the best condition. That will all tell for us. •wool and early mutton. New Metico and Utah have five millions between them. Other States have,enough to stake up the forty-three and a half millions in round numbers in the country. Iowa might profitably keep a million of imutton sheep. How often all hepes In ourselves and others fail, and we must depend upon a higher power to hoJjp. The feeds of the country were very scarce, the prices were very high, the stock was suffering—and in many instances dying. The farmer was helpless. Nothiwg but sunshine and warmth and a renewing of the miracle by which grass grows could help us. Well, the sun shone, ithe heat came, the rains fell, the ground warmed, tho grass grew, the stock was fed from the Bountiful Hand. We wonder if some such circumstance, suggested ,to the Hebrew poet the sentiment: "Oh, ithut men would praise (.'Sod for his goodness, and for his works of wonder done to the sons of men." The department of agriculture has issued a book stating the value of different crops on a. ten years' average: Tobacco is put at $01.51; potatoes, $J!8.'54; cotton, $15.(ift; hay, $11.08; corn, $0.47; rye, $8.27; buckwheat, $8.24; oats, $8.1fi; barley, $12.7(i. Tho cost of cultivation of tobacco, cotton and potatoes in different States, and the fertilixers necessary in most, bring down their profits. It speaks learnedly of the cost of growing corn in New Hampshire, but says nothing about it in Iowa. There is a map showing the New England States ahead as regards value per acre, with the Middle States and territories next. The map and the book never suggest for a moment where corn is really raised. A stranger looking over this publication would never suspect where Americans grow corn, nor that it costs New England as much to grow it as it is worth. The map shows that Florida and Iowa raise corn on a par. The department never in our knowledge sent out such a misleading publication. It is called an Album of Agricultural Graphics—whatever that means—a romance, maybe. We have no sympathy with the sentiment that estimates American public men as scoundrels. Wo often rap them for forgetting the industrial classes, but we firmly believe in their integrity as a class. Herbert Spencer classes them and their work with the French revolutionists that fell by the guillotine they had sot up for others. It is fashionable to sneer at congressmen, State legislators and editors by our magazine, writers. It is to bo noted that the people never ask them to assume governmental responsibility. Spencer has a great reputation in his line, but when lie condemns a whole people as he does the Americans inPopnlarScionci! Monthly for April, we have no confidence in his speculative theories that we an; not familiar with. No doubt as Sheridan wrote to please ,'lamcg 1 and changed his religion for a mist, so Spencer vilifies American public men to please the British public. 1 Hie would look into a few chapters of "tSryce's American Commonwealth" he would learn of the most progressive nation of tho day, and by an Englishman. Such public men as he describes could not guide such a people as ours. * It Is unwise to attempt records fot them as foeef cattle. It is v*y fatal to them to continue the .forcing ;inilk process, and will surely be fatal (to continue such early breeding as wo present. Short- korn men should systematically test their oows and breed in • one of two .directions, either for ibeef or milk. The haphazard plan will mot answer-the demands of tho tltncs. TJhe Shorthorn will milk well if she is, bred for milk and fed for it. The qualities of the bull must be considered, asithe laws of heredity wo imperative. Tlie calf of the milking flhorbhonn will make as good a feeding steer as it did foj half a century, while the breed won its-early reputation for both beef .and milk. Those who do not want more milk .than will carry the calf to tho feeding stall .or yard, can breed easily for that. It will take a long time to destroy the milking disposition in the calves of a bull that is .descended from a line of milkers, but it can be done. Bettor got the beef type for the highest beef development. We can have just what wo want, by breeding for it a»d feeding for it. Pay no attention to amateur cattle men who say that broods as wo have them are permanently fixed. Habit and breeding and feeding have made them what they are, and the same factors will make them what we want them. Judge Hubbard takes the ground that corporations of a semi-public nature should be controlled by government, and all others abolished. If anybody on the farm side would speak as freely on these matters as the Judge, a commission in lunacy would be sent to sit on him. He gives us a graphic account of tho rise of combinations, and consequent decline, of competition. The Judge is always "n- lertaining and always instructive, and we believe as sincere as if he did not have a brief from a corporation. We would like to see the Judge, in position where he, could help to put some of his theories in force. Iowa could afford to have one more verv uble man in her service. Our British cousins are off again over jilouro pneumonia. Mr. Chapin, the minister of agriculture in the House of Commons, stated to that body that cases of the plague hacVbecn detected by the government olh'cials. Now Dr. Salmon s;;ys the cuttle went from a district in which there had not been a case in four years; that the cattle only suffered from cauirrhal pneumonia. Our relations with foreign governments are peculiar in tliis regard. Our meats interfere very seriously with the profits of the farmers in all countries to which they are sent. The common people who find home meats dear desire ours and free; trade countries will not turilf them. They all resort to the subterfuge that they are unhealthy. Rigid inspection of exported meats takes till excuse away, und so desperate efforts are made to find cases of disease. Our veterinarians who are on tho ground seem to know more about this disease than those abroad, and this is a surprise to us. Sheep distribution is interesting. Texas has about fis-e millions. This is because that State has plenty of range grass. The sheep are of the poorest varieties and produce the poorest wools unless it be some other range sheep that cut below them. Ohio has about four millions. These are perhaps the finest of any State having large numbers. Ohio many years ago discovered that sheep paid better than cattle and has been reducing the latter und increasing the former. Michigan follows with about two and a quarter millions. Her sheep are farm bhcep and ure being steadily improved. Montana and Colorado follow with about two millions each, of the range so/ts. New York has about fourteen hundred thousand suited to he* hilly pastures and also suited to THIS Mt'TXOX SIIKKT. Look at the price of mutton in market. Look at our ability to make mutton. How wise it would seem to be to keep fewer hogs with their liability to disease, and divide the chances with sheep, for hog disease is one of the fe>v. tilings the farmer can not anticipate nor prevent, unless he runs less risk in that direction. Sheep do well on our fine grasses. Iowa is a very paradise for the mutton sheep. We can grow grasses, fodders and a few roots so easily for them, and when fattening times come we have the cheapest grains and the best in the world to do it with. The, successful mutton sheep Hock-master must study a little more.and read a little more, and consult a little more than any other farmer must. The breeding, rearing, feeding and finishing is a shade more delicate than cattle management, and may be put on a level with intelligent dairying. The mutton sheep will grow high-selling wool, and wools vary from 500 threads to the inch to 1,500, and from two to ten inches long, and from three to twenty pounds to the clip, and one kind sells three times as high as another, and so on. All this requires careful and thorough looking into. One. kind comes from the low lands with feet protected from the mud by thick hair; another comes from hilly countries without that protection. One breed is evolved from several others; another is as old as Magna-charta. The shepherd should buy a few books and learn all that is to be known about sheep. Iowa can always make the cheapest mutton because of her flue soils, fine climate, cheap grasses and grains. The business is one of ours, naturally, that we have been neglecting, for the most part. Let us read up on it a little and got a few nice sheep—just a few to begin with—and grow up a flock. It is an absolute pleasure to see them on an Iowa bluo grass pasture—a means of grace. THE mtE£DS Otf CATTLE. We are fairly well provided with sample breeds of cattle. There is room for all of them. "* There is excellence in all of them if they are not required to do wonders not heard of before in their history. The Black Polled cattle have fairly earned recognition as excellent beef cattle. Those who want beef alone can profitably keep them. If milking qualities belong to them it must be proven. We will wait for the Jesuits of trial. The distinct milk breeds have establish- HKTTKll SAVK1) HAY. A hay barn is cheaper than hay covering. It costs too much to shingle hay stacks with themselves. There is too much hay lost. Tho most economic haymaking is by thoso who cure quickest and house most promptly. We have yet to learn—many of us—how much is lost by the wetting, bleaching and sun-toasting of hay. Real well cured hay will ofattcn animals of itself. Clover hay is by far the most valuable Iowa hay, because it has what corn has not, and with corn makes as complete a ration as all growing stock require, or as most fattening stock generally get. We have much to learn yet about clover hay. But to doits best it must be cut in its bloom, beforo the blossoms turn, and must bo housed before it is injured by the weather. It can be stacked of course, safely, by covering with slough hay, but it is difficult to make it save itself. A crop of it leaves tlie land richer than before it was grown, as it feeds the soil with nitrogen from the atmosphere, something timothy will not do. Attention is being given to tho European method of saving hay. Four and five hundred pound cocks are built and sometimes protected by covers of various sorts while the hay is being cured fit for the barn. This costs time and expense, but the hay retains ali its strength and flavor, and is much more valuable. Large fanners who have complete outfits of hands and machinery can save hay better than small farmers, but the small farmers could resort to the continental methods, have covers enough to protect a few tons until it thoroughly cures. This feature of hay-making need not be very expensive. It is only a question of getting covers made by the wholesale at reasonable figures from some cheap material like paper from straw, painted. We must consider these questions as the extra value of well saved crops is so much bej'ond poor stuffs that we can not in Iowa longer afford to have good crops wasted whero'it can be prevented. OXIA 7 ITAItt 1'LAY ASKED. The short corn crop of 1S!)0 begins to tell upon railway receipts. We will heai of granger legislation soon as the cause. It is remarkable how little tho sections of our common country know each other. Metropolitan journals in the East lampoon tho western farmer for meddling with transportation and reducing exhorb- itant prohibitive rates, while lessons come to us from far Hungary of increased incomes of State railways through greatly reduced rates. The full car pays, the half empty car does not. We firmly believe that lower rates woul'd increase travel here as they do in the Austrian empire, and bring bigger incomes to railway companies as they do to our post- office department, and also by going in the direction the postoffice goes—a given sum for a ride long or short, or within zones as it is in Hungary. Nothing has been more salutary in carry ing than compelling all to behave as tho best managers behave. Meddling with transportation lias been conducted in tho West on principles of equity and a beginning only has been made. The. favored list will bo attacked next, and no relenting till one American citizen is treated like, another, and tin's list is a large one. Through it most of the trusts defy competition—were built up indeed. Through it they live, move and have their being. The inside favored lines and car companies get the profits of the trunk lines, while stockholders are told that the granger does all the mischief. This is reflected through the big eastern dailies and magazines. Our professional classes in Iowa are in sympathy to a great extent with this sentiment, and chime in on occasions with their little sneers at the farmers' movement. There is an honest, robust, admirable spirit manifest in our land that finds expression in demands for fair play and will not be frowned down. The farmer meets it everywhere, and answers wo£*! u » aut * Times Republican, May, 14: The chief plea made against the prohibitory law is that it can not be successfully enforced. This has been the constant plaint of the democratic party, and democratic officials, without attempting to enforce tt, have accepted this dictum of party leaders and have practically nullified it in the democratic strongholds of Iowa. They have in fact been in rebellion against the laws of the state. This is the mildest term in expressingthe real situation, that their attitude will permit. They assumed this attitude of law defiance not because their desire that it shall not be enforced is the motive back of it. But can the law be enforced? The friends of the statute claim that it has been fairly well enforced in three-fourths of the state. If the merit of enforcement is to be accepted as a test of the efficacy of the ,law Marshal county furnishes a good example in favor of the law. With a population of moro than 25,000, it has in its center a city of 10,000 with all the elements of population to be found in counties and cities of like size. When the law went into effect the open saloon was banished and remained closed until the original package era came. True, there were bootlegers and secret vioiators, but their steps were limited. When the original package era came the open saloon flourished for awhile, until the Wilson law interfered and enforcement followed. The violators of the law were emboldened, however, by that era and were quietly violating the law in a number of places until recently. At the last election one of the ablest members of the county bar, J. L. Carney, Esq., was selected for county attorney, and to his efforts is due the fact that Marshalltown and Marshall county have no open saloons and few stealthy violators of the law. He determined at the outset to give the same intelligent attention and earnestness to these cases as to others—no more, no less—and as a result of his efficient work there is no doubt that great changes haye been made in regard to the liquer bus-, iness in the county. Many of the old violators of the law have left the country and others are preparing to go, as the following summary will indicate. Chas. Zimmerman was indicted by the last grand jury and left State Center for Chicago. John Yeager went away and came back and will spend the summer in jail. Col- emyer was given a fine on promise of good behavior. The Chamberlains of Rhodes, have quit the business and moved away. Two of the Bowmans have moved to Chicago. Chas. Hanson and Nelson, who were indicted for keeping a notorious place next to Dr. Upson's have fled; also Wm. and Henry Miller, who kept under the City bank. Jos. Fuerth declares he has quit the business and with a $500 fine suspended over him there is an incentive to stick to the resolution. Winebrenner is in jail to serve out a sentence. Geo. Miller is convicted and will probably have to give up. Wm. Henley, who kept the Brunswick and was indicted and has left the state; also John Tinker, who kept in the Dixon building. This shows the scattering of stealthy violators and demonstrates what can be done in the way of euf orcement when the grand jury, the sheriff, county attorney and the district judge are ready and willing to keep the oath of office sacred. Not only were the violators of the liquor law punished or driven out by the prompt and efficient efforts of the countj 7 attorney, but a new measure was inaugurated, that of indicting the owners of buildings where liquors have beea sold, and this will prove a serious obstacle to violators hereafter, as a fine of $500 is calculated to make proprietors of buildings more cautious. Another feature of enforcement that should have attention m this connection is the matter of costs of prosecution, and in this respect Marshall county can make a most excellent showing as a result of the recent efforts. The democratic organ of this county, the Statesman, said several weeks ago that this term of court had been the most expensive in the history of the county, but when challenged to produce the figures to acknowledge that it was indulging in mere assertion, it suddenly became silent, thus showing that it was better to shut up than to produce the figures. In view of the statement made by the Statesman in regard to cost of enforcing the prohibitory law, at the term of court just closed, the officers haye been requested to separate and make a showing of the costs thatjhave accrued in tlie prosecution of such cases. We have been successful m getting a statement which is said to be substantially accurate, and is believed so to be by the officers who have furnished it. This statement dees not in elude the costs that have been paid by defendants in cases where fines have been paid. When fines are paid the costs are also paid with them, so that thin statement will include the grand jury expense, and the costs on indictments in cases where defendants were indicted at this term which are still unpaid. It will also include the costs of the injunction cases. The statement will also include the amount of fines imposed by Judge Hindman, and tke amount of fines collected, 164.TO 61.00 40.00 110.06 096.80 The expense* were ft* follows: Thft amount of fees of grand jury witnesses on liquor «««§««,.. \ , ,* Grand jurors' fees tot investigation of cases Sheriff's fees, subpronaeing wit' nesses before grand jury liquor Total cogts'thiis'f'ar'mado In the'in- junction cases.. Total expenses ,.... Taking the expense of liquor prose' cutions, $695.80, from the amount of fines collected, $1,050, leaves $854,20 balance already accrued to the county, over and above the total expense of prosecutions. This amount of $1,050 collected in fines will be increased by other fines, which will be collected from defendants who have left the country and are desirous of returning. Of course there is no means of ascertaining just how much that will amount to, but in addition to that amount there is one case, the State of Iowa vs. George which an appeal bond has been filed, and the case will go to the supreme court. If that case is affirmed the fine secured by the bond will add $500 to the fines already collected. It will be seen from the above statement that the investigation of the matter shows that instead of the county being a loser by the vigorous prosecutions of the liquor traffic, that in effect it will be gainer Jjy the fines collected over and above the expenses. In view of the showing thus made, can it be said that the law is a failure, or that enforcement is attended with greater expense than is warranted? We think not. On the contrary, it furnishes most excellent reasons why It should be sustained and properly enforced. DO YOU WANT IT? Real Estate Deals.

When, therefore, we find that only $8,861,789 of such goods were imported during February last as against $14,947,517 for February, 1890, we realize that instead of importing the goods we import the industry. Great Britain is not selling so much worsted goods to us this year as last.
