Tliis is the only rational way to handle our acres. It 5s being discussed whether :.a grain ration pays on good pasture. That depend*. If the pasture is -re;i,tl,y .excellent the dairy cow needs little-else, b<;l thero are lew such pastures. Jf :1,he ci»w is do-, ing well that can be let aldiit;, but when the product sells at a profit, -rt ; pays to feed a cow up to her limii. The steer that is tn sell in the high da-uses will pay •i grain ration on grass if the grain be not above normal Iowa prices. When a good animal can be made to do better • .give the feed that will bring that about. The cow aud steer are machines to turn cheap feed into dear selling products,and the machine should run at reasonable speed. Bulletin 18 contains analysis of .seeds bought from eastern seed houses. Tho showing is very bad. These eastern seedsmen send high-priced goods, called select, but distinctly disclaim responsibility, asking the return of the seeds j£ this arrangement is not satisfactory. The people have no protection. Tho Iowa, station proposes to see about that, and set a botanist at w«rk to see what high. toned houses palm ol? on the people as -good seed. One sample contained twen- ?%,'-six different weod seeds, another was , Qiao-third sand. It is *ow a business fol- ; j.Jawed regularly to grind up quart/ rock ; tht color of different sewjs and sell them . tO'lhe seedsmen, who in turn sell them to tV'o people. The Iowa station got its Buppiy like other buyers, aad in Bulletin ]i{ h*ve, kicked. Heeds bought from Jowa s*.;edsinen were comparatively pure .und noiio had quart/, rock in tbem. of green corn wtlliita the- same vice, but it is not so tfah*able as leguminous plants for f coding;, nor does it leave the land in as good ecttdition. -If Iowa farmers arc to help thefflftflclvos over the, summer shrinking petted, 'the second! winter, the hot season that stops growth and fattening, and milfcgtving to a ruin-' ous extent, those soiling plants deservoj consideration. The Illinois experiment station has : Just issued Bulletin Na 10, containing, an experiment by Farrington conducted; at, tho creamery of Ourler Hros., DcKalb, Illinois. It plagiarises from Hulletin No. < !), of tho Iowa experiment • station Prof. Patrick's method of composite samples for testing milk and ..their preservation. Part of our stations do .original work and part ol' them make reputation on cheap linos by elaborating tho discoveries of greater men. Farrlngton sot safely about his stealing. Ho. had Ourlor write to Patrick for his preservative formula. It would not be a surprise if one investigator should duplicate the work of another, but to appropriute<withont credit is very small business. We would not pay attention to this if Patrick patented his discoveries, but he gives tho farmers ut once bono.lit of tho discoveries ho makes, and wo owe a godditurn to him and is, rap to those who appropriate his works. Our hog has got there at' last. He began squealing in the columns of tho farm newspaper about not having a wide enough field to move in. Political con- vontions hoard him corning from .grange and alliance meetings and got -afraid lie might meddle at the polls. He, wilsed a din all over Iowa that extended to other States, and rooted around politicians until they promised him he could go to France or Germany—or anywhe.ro ho wanted if ho would only be,still. Finally he invaded Congress. IO& on the sacred sections of the McKinloy i^bill had to make room for a throat that if tho American hog—the four-legged cane, ,we moan —did not have privilege, to go.'Whore ho pleased, Uncle Sam would look cross at foreign commerce. The State department called the attention of our foreign ministers to the demands of tho hog, and now he has leave to go where .he pleases. It takes a while, sometimes, but the hog —or his owner—with a good disc, gets a hearing sooner or later. Kent on tho farm section, Mudd on.th* horticultural section, PfttfUsk as ag* ficultwrat chemist, Stalker as vetelinati* an,' Osborn as entomologist, ;and Paminel as botanist. This forCo comprises tho station staff, with Prosidont ftoardshear presiding ovet this, as own tliti other departments o! tho collogo. The station is as wall equipped as any'in tho land. Its work-is also incidentally fot tho benefit of students in tho courswuaf isiudy, especially in tho agricultural course. Bulletin Ho. 13 has Just been issued. The feeding experiment contained in it is intended to compare- the feeding values of earn fodder, corn ensilage, sorghum ensilage, and roots. Eight -cows were under trial for sixty days, -during .which timo'cach cow had allilthc feeds mentioned. Two-thirds of tho'tlme marks the experiment proper, as five days were devoted between tho different feeds to bring the caws fairly under their influence. The milk was carefully-sampled-,at every milking and analysed every five days by tho chemist. The results in butter fats and total solids show tho-effect .of each feed. Different breeds-are. u'scd, but this has no significance, as the managers . at that time were strangers to the...place and no record of tho cows previously made was at their disposal. ' They • tookl as fresh flows as were, obtainable, and as'thc record of every cow on the farm is rlow taken ,soinu that now.flguro in Bulletin 1!5 will-not bo heard of again. The investigators find that during foxty days the eight cows consumed 051.5 .pounds of corn fodder and gave 2, OIL0 pounds of milk that tested 74.8S) pounds >of butter fat and. 2-18.18 pounds .of total solids. 111,500 people visited the Royal Agricultural show at Dorcaster, Rngland, open to the three kingdoms during its six day's meeting. This is not equal to the Iowa State fair as far as n.umbers are concerned. They had butter testing carried on by dairymaids. This would draw in DCS Jloines if the dairymaids could be found. Of course, the dairymaids would got beaux very promptly, so that it would do no permanent good to hunt around for tho maids, as they would go oil' at a premium. The Koyal has only agricultural shows, and no horse speeding. Tho speeding of horses is done by itself over' there. This division has not been found practical here. We have not heard of its ever having been fairly tried. The peoples here and there differ. Our people enjoy relaxation from business, and when the trots are conducted by gentlemen, they afford diversion that is not reprehensible. Tho fast horse abroad is in different hands — and here also sometimes. « rilOSPKIlOUS IOWA. This is a great crop year in Iowa.

Improvements go on on old buildings. You feel it in tho air that times are good and growing bettor, iloney is plenty to conduct all kinds of business and this crop will make it plcntier. Ii is cheaper than formerly and this crop will make it still cheaper. Trusts fail to keep commodities made by machinery from cheapening. So the great State grows in wealth as well as in intelligence and aorrect living. IOWA STATION EXPERIMENTS Hf FEEDING. Tli* investigators ,at the Iowa experiment station have begun the publication of a series of feeding experiments that will embrace all the domestic animals. Bulletins are issued every three months, at present, and go free to citizens of the State, on application. Congress designs this work for the especial benefit of the farmers, horticulturists and all citizens interested. The station at Ames has $15,000 a year to do its work with, besides having tho use of an 1,100 acre farm and its six breeds of cattle, seven breeds of sheep, five breeds of horses, part now coming from Europe, and the beat kinds of hogs obtainable. The station hw Profewow Wilson. Curtii 3,773.0-ipounds of corn ensilage were fed, that gave 2,031.0 pounds of milk that tested 70.. r >0 pounds of butter i'.fat and 245, 72 pounds of total solids. !J; 45(5.4. pounds of sorghum ensilage were fed, that gave 1,!)22 pounds of milk that tested 0(5. 88 pounds of butter fats, and £!:•!. Si) pounds of total solids. ;i,247.7 pounds of mangels .wore fed, that gave.2,172.8 pounds of milk that tested 7!). 9!) pounds of .butter ,. fats and 271.11 pounds of total solids. All these feeds were reduced to dry matter condition by Prof. Patrick. Tin corn fodder from the barn analy/.ed 70.0") per cent, of dry matter. The corn ensilage, 24.3; the sorghun, 20.1; and the mangels, 0.5 per cent, of dry matter. The chemist in .reducing feeds : to dry matter subjects them to 100 degrees centigrade until, they cease to lose .-.weight, equal to 212 -degrees Faronheit. This gives tho best showing . for tin roqts, but the expense of growing , roots- with high priced labor makes the -comparative value of corn fodder and corn ensilage very suggestive. The corn fodder makes the next highest mark, but hero again tho Investigators tell that 27(5 pounds of corn fodder- was not eaten, which, compared with the corn ensilage not oaten, which .was 12(i pounds, modifies the: result, as the cows no doubt ate the best. Corn ensilage stands next to corn fodder. Many experiments have been made to ascertain which of these two feeds are bos.t, with varying results. Henry and Armsby and others have rospeatedly tried the,in, and left the honors unawarded. Much depends upon the curing of the shock corn, and tho making of the ensilage. The ensilage is very palatable and is very grateful to the -cows. It is really the great American substitute for roots, and an experiment conducted last winter at Guelph by those careful Canadian investigators who nuist use roots because corn Avill not mature so >well there as with us, leads them to conclude that en:Silage is a good substitute for roots. We ithink perfect corn fodder and perfect •corn ensilage practically alike, if .the initts of the fodder were as palatable in tlry condition as in ensilage condition, which they are not. We doubt if corn fodder gets fair play always. Few make shocks soon enough or big enough, or handle th-cm properly, and low make perfect ensilage. Research in tiiis. regard repeatedly made calls attention repeatedly to the great value of bo til., and to the universal wastoiof them going -.on. Sorghum ensilage is difficult -,to man- ago. { ia.pt. Spoor made it perfectly, but as the feeding of it progressed, it-japidly acidifkvS, so that tho cows did not eat so much of it as of the corn ensilage, and what they, did eat did not give as good results as iko other feeds. When given in small musses to young stock it was eaten grewltty and it is no doubt valuable as part of u nation. The double .portion of hay fed with the mangels is supposed to have brougiit that ration t« .the front. Clover is albu- minous, and cows manufacture both flesh and milk fmra it. It was added because it was on hand, and no other hay was, and naturally more was fed with the root ration. The final findings of Bulletin 13 aro.that&G pounds of the corn fodder made a pound of butter fat, 2.0, a pound of milk solids; 13 pounds of corn ensilage made u pound of milk fat, and 3.73 a pound <jf milk solids; ISl.o pounds of sorghum ensilage made a pound of milk fat and3.8U.ii. pound of milk solids. It must be understood that thes amounts of fats and solids do jjot result from the fodders alone. Bulletin 13 shows that a light, uniform grain ration was fed each cow that did not vary while she had tlie different feeds tested. The farm section of the statiou is -writing up five feeding experiments for tbe August bulletin, about which we can say nothing until they are published, rt« it would be in bad taste to make , Rcftl Estate Deals, (Published regularly each week.)
