anb Stock IJarb. WILSON, Editor. [Ideas are solicited from our farmer reader*. Queries will be answered. Address to the Editor, James Wilson, Ames, Iowa.] • • • .... .j Cultivation does far more tot out crops tlian manure. _ Mexico has had a drouth this summer and is short of breadstuff s. Running creameries on Sunday is not a necessity, so many creamery men say. i\. few timely rains made the present great crop. The soil is very dry now, in many placos. Rural Life is doing splendidly. We get inspiration from it nvcry week. Bennett puts in lots of spice. The other writers, lots of sense. \Vb do not think there is such a thing as a ponnanently profitable hog farm. The ruminant is necessary to keep the farm fertile. A week ago Chicago received 88,835 hogs; one ye:ir previous, HIS,835. Hogs will sell well for some time to come, with such showings. Hut a small per cent, of the people of the world eat wheat and meats. The. ox- tension of commerce extends desire and ability to cat moats and wheat. We exported $0,85)2, 120 Avorth of oil cake in the eleven months ending May 31, 1891. This is the material that foreigners fwd for the manure it makes, whether there is profit in feeding or not. We will not have such a run from the desurt, this fall, of surplus stock, because they arc not there. The drouth and the panjc did their work last year, and prices of low grade stock will not run down as they did then. Thu National Stockman s;:ys: "As a help in a system of rotation there is no butter animal than the pig." This is side walk advise. The cow is the best animal t'oi: rotation, as she will consume all the crops in rotation. The pig will not. The pig cannot. Foreigners only, buy our grains freely when they ;;re cheap. For the eleven mouths ending May, 1801, they took 37,- 7iiS.021 bushels of our corn; for the same lime in 1800, they took 08, 901,775 bushels. Wheat will be dearer this year than last yar, and that will compel millions of abroad to stop eating it. The whole world lias l,-l?>7, 000,000 peo- pl.' and 2:iO,Obo,000 cattle. The United Mates lias about two- thirds of a bovine in each human individual. For the eleven months ending May, 181)1, we exported : 17,420 head of cattle. We are reported 10 have r>0, 000, 000 head. If a fifth of the herds go to market each year, we kill and :-<>IL 2,5UO.OOO. About as 'much dead beef .••, live beef is sold. l'\'i'd h;is much to rto in determining 1 i lie. shape; of tho pi»-.

Corn and oil meal go well together. Clover balances ooru. In short, the carbonaceous and albuminous make the perfect ration. For fat, feed most corn. Casino, in milk, leg- union, in peas, and albumen, in oil meal ;;ncl bran, are kindred constituents. The ground in many parts of the State is very dry. Where pastures have been I'nlly .stocked, cows will shrink and young stock will stop growing. If the State was fully stocked as it was a year ago, we? would see a movement to sell. Hut stocks were sold off low a year ago and wn hear of a general e1i'ort < to breed out lias year. The thrifty farmer will find profit in keeping his- animals thriving, if In; has to feed something extra. Any- iliiug but a stand-still. The great heat of early August has been worth many millions to the State of Iowa. Much corn will be hurried forward, that without it would have been loo late. The ground has been warmed up and corn will go forward to the ripen- ,ug period. It has saved many crops ihut would not have matured. Great nsks have been run by late planting, and nisutlicient tilling. Home fields are, per- iiaps too far behind to make heavy crops. Hut the average yield is now considered safe. " The National Stockman says: '-The manure made by hogs is richest, because they consume the richest food." Hogs generally consume Corn, and manure made from corn is not the richest. Manure made from oil cake or bran or peas or beans or clover is richest because it contains what most plants cannot get from the atmosphere. British farmers buy our oil cake and feed it with straw and turnips, for the manure. They do not buy our corn to feed for the sake of tlie manure. Try a little manure made fjcom corn, and a little made from oil meal, and note the difference. There is tto question about oiif ability to gtow beets, wor abdwt thpfa being a fait per,cent, of rmigar In theirt. The unsettled question is 'the same that OOlfles up when the oow is to be milked: will she pay for the labor? Have we labor that can be secured to grow beets? Wo think there are plenty of families that can turn their time into money by growing beets, as well as in milking cows. Largo families of young people that need money to better their circumstances can thin beets. After that is done machine^- does the rest. There will be a great demand for Iowa steers and Iowa corn this fall. Heef is high, and good prospects of its being high. Thousands are desirous of feeding our steers for us with our corn and hay and oil meal. Why'.' liecause it has paid them to do so in the past, and there is every reason to believe that making beef will pay this fall and winter and next spring. Iowa is a veritable mine of wealth for people who have more faith in feeding our grain to our steers than we. have ourselves. Why so little faith? Simply for want of the feeding habit. Rarely does a farmer let eastern people feed for him alter he has got his hand in. We. advise Iowa farmers to do this work for themselves. The farms where feeding is done get rich, as well as the farmers. Cheaper and better transportation have brought the ends of the earth together. England has some 20,000,000 of people working for other nations in her shops that she cannot feed. Russia has been feeding them to some extent, but Russia is now putting an export duty on grain, because she has none to spare. The rest of Europe cannot feed itself. We have a 500,000,000-bushel wheat crop. The 20,000,000 of people in England will need 100,000,000 bushels of it, and the rest of the world a good deal besides. There is a good time ahead of our people, because we exchange, grain for gold, and gold for fanners makes times good for all classes. Public sentiment just now insists on immediate sales. Farm sentiment suggests holding what is not wanted for immediate consnmptio2i, so as to prevent depressed markets. There will be holding done. Who can prevent it? It has been said that "the trust laws can all be avoided." It is also well known that the great trusts of the country can not endure, partly because they are conceived in dishonesty and lack confidence in themselves, and partly because they are shunned by honest men. Bradstreet tells us that the lead trust, the last of a prominent group, is dissolving. Consider for a inom'ent what a trust is. Tiie banding together of corporations to limit production and enhance prices; to issue watered, inflated stock, and point to the dividends upon it as fair returns on invested capital; and to compel consumers to pay taxes tt> them on the necessaries of life. The movement among farmers to keep part of their crops out of the hands of speculators is called a trust, but it has iir-iio of the elements that make up a trust. We are constantly told by a class of writers that fat in beef is not eaten. This is a mistake. .Beef eaters of lifelong standing like fat beef. The palate requires education in this regard. Fat is healthy and necessary to the body. We eat butter, the Russians eat oil, the English eat fat beef. _ Many of us eat fat pork. We take the position that the longer one eats beef, the fatter he wants it. We say, farther, that beef is not fit for food unless it is fat. We do not mean the loose, free fat, but that which is in- tersperced among the muscles. The. truth is, western people^ arc; but learning to eat beef. Pork was the common fare, years ago, and fat at that. The longer we eat beef, the more we demand juicy beef, and juicy beef is fat beef. The best is well fatted and most easily digested. It feeds the fires that demand feed. The steer fed oil' fat at thirty months old makes the- best beef if it is fat. It does not pay to sell lean beef. that on t formers fl!fe«uid ittjpfrrjve in that direqtipn.. The matked OhAftgofl from feeds in fats come itoni thos,e.that i dltfer more than any fed ito c«W8 teporiied in Bulletin 13. And yet those feeds show differences in f«ts. Cows vary a little in fats, independent of feeds, but marked variation follows radical changes. We. think, on the whole, that Bennett thinks about as wo think. YOUNG (JUASSJR.4. The spring-sown, tame grasses are worth careful looking into at present. Last spring was favorable for them, being sufficiently wot whore tlioy were put in early so as to got well rooted before the May drouth occurred. The nursing crops have been heavy, and .now, when we go to look for young timothy and clover, we often see no appearances of them. The first impression one gets is that the young plants have been smothered by the heavy oats or barley or rye, but Iq^k carefully down at the surface of the ground and you will find the grass plants having but little left green above ground. It is considered that while the nursing crop was growing, hosts of insects lived and had their being on the growing cfops, and that the ripening process deprived them of everything green except the young grasses. Wo can understand why the young clover and timothy disappeared so quickly when the grain ripened. The plants are still alive, most of them, and as soon as rain comes they Avill grow again. As soon as the insects have eaten the young grasses down to the ground, they left for better feeding grounds. This will account for the condition of many a spring s'owing of grass. Another cause of the disappearance of the young plants is explained by late germination and insufficient, watering. . Such plants may retain life through short drouths and yet show little of it. It is not best to condemn a stand of young grass until rains have had opportunity to start all that have life. Then if the, stand is not thick enough it is time to re-seed it. We have observed the causes and conditions here described, repeatedly, and advise farmers to make close inspection of stubble-field grasses and see if they do not find them, in many instances, as we have outlined. iw Aim fix-Senator Ingalls says that "there are 1.000,000 men out of work." The North- v.-est needs 1,000,000 men and could have employed that number all summer, and would employ them now and give them something to do all the year round. In- yalls never took any interest in industrial aifairs, and now that he is out of a job, lie tries to make epigrams that tit the, industries, as he used to fit them to politics. The fact is, farmers arc overworked just now, and cannot find help in the house or out of it. Wo have, trumps, but they do not want work. There is no possible *jc- cuse for one single idle man or woman m America. Sugar beets «ro making fine growths thfe PWWB wbwe tbejr b»r» had o*jra, A writer in the American Agriculturist says: "Timothy is a market hay, and the most of men who attempt to raise it for market find themselves growing poorer ever}' year." We quote because this man is getting light and giving it. Timothy is not well understood in Iowa. It grows well if it is fed well. It differs in this regard from clover: Clover feeds from the atmosphcrc'and feeds timothy. Timothy grows well while the feed lasts, but on uplands when the clover roots fail and no more feed is furnished, timothy does not pay. No crop pays when sold off the farm beyond the power of the feeding plants to grow. We can grow corn on clover seed and keep good the farm, although we sell the meats made from the corn, but if we go farther and sell the hay that should be fed with the corn, we put too much upon the powers of clover as a recuperative agent. The least harm done to the farm is by selling what is easiest gathered from the atmosphere, and that is butter. Mr. Bennett draws the feeding experiment in Bulletin 1U into point, to show that quality of milk does not follow feeding. That experiment was conducted for the purpose of comparing Iowa fodders. The difference was little, the variation very small in most cases. We did not feed for quality or quantity, expressly. The difference between corn fodder and corn ensilage is so little that several stations in different States have been at work for years to settle the point. If Mr. Bennett will be patient, we will give attention to that one thing and report facts for hig consideration. We are a firm believer in of f oed fwdtefr aa<Jteii*v« THOS13 TEN CATTLE. We have been suggesting to the owners of bare pastures the wisdom of soiling to the extent of cutting something green to keep over the two months of July and August. A ride over the State recently showed the need of something so imperatively that we suggest a cheap and immediate remedy for suffering animals. We have a case in mind. A field with ten head of cattle, ten acres in extent, four acres of good dry land and six of slough. The dry acres are in timothy as bare as if the locusts of Egypt had been all there for a week. The slough picked as close as the present stylo of hair cutting. The poor cattle looked as if the elections had passed, and had gone against them, and their very reputation was gone, How many years they have been imprisoned We can ijpt guess; how many more they may suffer we, hesitate to suspect. We propose this: Plow an acre of the good land in one corner this fall. Put thirty loads of the manure lying idle over it. Lay out S5 for twelve posts and 100 pounds of wire to enclose it. Sow one-fourth of it in winter rye, this September. A peck will do it. Sow half of it in peas and oats as soon aa spring opens. Get the largest kind of peas. A peck of peas and a bushel and a half of oats will answer. Sow the other fourth in corn—half a bushel will do. Begin to cut the rye as soon as the 1st of June. The cattle will want it. Throw it over the fence. If it is too much trouble to make racks throw it under the fence. The acre can be cut over twice at least, and will yield fifteen tons of feed. This will give 250 pounds a day for four months, or twice that amount for July and August. It will revolutionizes the situation. AYe plead for those ten head of cattle. Everybody sees them and they may get into the newspapers. The acre. will yield a tine crop of clover the, next " . .tiitt. My, il— Wfiat mink of the all nround value of al ncetae, as compared to ffifcdlitm Borne months ago t bought a farm, the soil of which has been fobbed for the past few years, and 1 am now confronted witfi" the problem of enriching it. It is very cleat io me that clover Is what t need and must lave, and I had settled oh medium clover. but within a few days I have had some wonderful stories told me by people who were acquainted with alfalfa, as to Ha value both for hay and for enriching the soil, We are Just finishing up haying, and I think that my 100 acres of timothy will average just about one-half ton to the acre, which will give you a very clear idea of condition of land. I will break up this 'all, about forty acres of timothy sod, put- ing it into corn next year, and I want— if 't is a possible thing— to got clover started n the remaining sixty acres. How would von do it? I will bo under many obliga- ;ions If you will lot me hear from you at Borne length. F. M. Nonius. Alfalfa is not reliable on our prairie soil as clover is. It is also liable to red rust that makes it unfit for fodder. Wo suppose it might do well in some places under favorable conditions. When a plant is not growing vigorously disease attacks it. Medium red clover is what you want It will restore fertility on most of our reduced lands. Your timothy needs clover to fertilize it. The one plant feeds the other. Timothy does poorly after tho clover dies out, which it will if it is not permitted to re-seed the land. Close grazing in the fall will kill out clover for want of fresh scod. Either plow up the timothy and take a course of crops and seed down again, or serw clover heavy next March on tho last snows. You might sow it in early September, harrowing it in if the ground is well moistened. We would. It may winter kill, but likely not. If it does then yon can sow in March. Late frosts rarely injure young clover in tho spring. If you sow next spring be sure to go over it with the harrow. It will not hurt the timothy and will help the clover in several ways. Timothy should not be depended on more than one year aftor the clover dies on our dry prairio uplands. There are low lying lands not quite dry enough for corn that will grow timothy well year after year. Nine-tenths of tho timothy fields in the State should be plowed up or have red clover sowed heavily on them. Tho clover will make good grazing in June.

OASIS, Iowa, July 18.—When would be th« best time to plow clover sod to plant to com? If this fall, what time? I was thinking of waiting until the 20th of May, thus securing a good spring growth of clover to plow under. It is the first crop of clover and will not bo pastured. A FAIIMEH, Plow it as early this fall as you can get at it. If you wait until the 20th of May and find a dry time tho land may not bo in condition to sprout tho seed. Then you must harrow a good deal to reduce the furrows to seed bed condition. The frost will work for you this winter if you do your plowing this fall. We have let plowing go until the last of May as you suggest, but it takes more time to pulverize the land than the growth of clover is worth, besides the : fall growth of clover is bettler for turning under than the spring growth. Again, the clover roots plowed in the fall will be in the propor state of decomposition to feed the corn plants, while late spring plowing gives Cotter crop the second year. 'Bird !><>,•;• for wile.
