Eastern farmers are having a controversy •with woolen manufacturers who want free wool. The former think they should have protection if the latter have It When you look for early pigs, lambs or any young thing, remember motherhood requires comfort. The pens and stalls should not freeze nor be chilly. It pays to see to this. Mr. Sage is really making a literary gem of the weather report. He is getting at the philosophy of the science and makes not only a suggestive publication but a very readable pamphlet. The twine trust Is reported as the most complete of all the rascally associations that combine to rob the farmer. Our State secretary of alliance, MT. Post, has managed, heretofore, to arrange with houses for fair rates, and wo hope he will again. _ ___ _ _ There is no greater nuisance to the farmer than papers that come without being sent for, and will not stop when they are asked; and there is no surer way of raising up permanent enemies to a publication. The experience is like a bad dream. Mr. O. T. Denison has a point regarding milk values worth considering. He says some cows flavor butter more than others and he has found no way of compensating for it. Fresh cows also help strippers' milk to churn, and yet the test gives nothing for that. Somebody advises using a barb wires on top and smooth wires below for a horse fence. That seems to be a sensible suggestion. The maiming of western horses by barb wire has become a grave objection to the use of wire at all around a horse pasture. The hunting horse is a rare animal, a high priced animal, a unique house. He must carry a man for hours at a good pace, jump all obstructions, be sure-foot- I'd, have courage and judgment how to leap. Thuy ;iro sired by thoroughbreds, but what kind of a dam is the question. It is a question whether the farmer who never reads or the farmer in theory who has no practice knows the least. It is very certain that the world is no better fur either. The one learns nothing, | Hie other teaches nothing valuable. The j \vi,-rld lias a large numb"r of both and j gets no pood of them. | Jrcientiiib; have taken up (he discus- ! siou of oats. They ihvl something sooth- j in:; 1 to the ii'M'ves, i-iomei.hi boys and girls who hav& attended at Ames. The farm professors will provide room for boys in their course if they have to lodge them in their own houses, and sleep three abed. The Maryland station tried to fatten an old Jersey cow and an old Ayrshire acid failed, with corn meal and linseed meal. If they had added pulped vegetables they would have succeeded. The advocates of this class of cows admit that they are not worth feeding when too old for milking. Wo suggest roots. Wo think something can be done with them. It furnishes a warning, however, to Iowa farmers who require the fattening feature in cattle. The British people are just now stamping out pleuro-pneumonia. There is a strong feeling against it over there, and a strong feeling in favor of inoculation. The London Live Stock Journal says: "As regards the cost—of stamping out—we should say that if it is effectual in accomplishing its object it will not incur a small part of the outlay that would have been caused by the adoption of the system of innoculation." Somo of our people who are urging innoculation please note. Prof. Babcock goes so far as to say that some milkers get richer milk than others. Some milkers got more milk than others. If the cow stops letting down sooner to one milker than another the stripping are tho richest and will make a difference. The latest theory [regarding milk is that it is part of the cow. She denies herself to milkers she dislikes. Some cows absolutely refuse to give down at all to millcers they dislike. It Is a bitter thing to soy to a man that he never made his mother smile, and next to that would bo that a cow would not let down to him. The farmer who will succeed must be a good herdsman and teach herd lore to his boys and hired help. Our successful farmers are good herdsmen. Success can not bo had without it. It may seem that little is necessary in tho line of study of the marc, tho cow, tho owe or tho sow, but there is enough to occupy the. best minds of tin; age. There is something sacred about maternity, much that is mysterious, :i groat deal that is interesting, and he who does not study it as it relates to his animals will not mako them profitable. The opinions about the herds of the land that we find in publication will be modified with more study of them It should begin in early years. Tfe who does not grow into the knowledge of a business may, later in from vicious fendenotes by which the Impudent few gather to themselves the winnings of the masses. The British Barons took lands held In common by the people. Parliament is gradually re-distributing. Land tenure in Ireland is not as secure as in Dakota. A wrong was done in the past that is now being rent • eo'ied. The children of the strong hand go to the poor house. History will surely repeat itself. No man's millions are secure that were made wrongfully or at the cost of neighborhoods, or in defiance of law. The millions now being piled up will get as certain scattering as tho lands of the robber Barons, and all the people will say, Amen. JBXTRACT~FftOM: BULLETIN NO. 15. TIME OP 8OWINO GKASS SEED. For the purpose of ascertaining the best time to sow tho seeds of cultivated grasses this station sowed the seeds of six different grasses at eight different times, beginning March 2!J and ending May 12, 1891. The varieties sown were red clover, white clover, timothy, orchard grass, tall meadow oat grass and awnless brome (bromus Inermus). The plats are one rod square. The soil is rolling prairie with black surface and clay subsoil, fall plowed. The amounts sown were, red clover and timothy at the rate of twenty pounds per acre, white clover ten pounds per acre, tall meadow oat grass fifty pounds, orchard grass thirty pounds, and brome sixty pounds per acre. On March 24 two inches of snow fell after the first seeding that was sown on the surface without covering of any kind. At this seeding the frost was out of the ground four inches, tho temperature of the atmosphere at 3 p. m. was 37° F.; one inch below the surface it was 38°. The soil was quite wet and unfit for any kind of cultivation. All seedings after the first were raked in thoroughly. The temperature of the atmosphere March 30 was -JO ° and of the soil 37°. April 0 the atmosphere was 65°, soil 48°; April 13, atmosphere 05 ° , soil 57 *; April 20, atmosphere 66°, soil 07 ° ; April 27, atmosphere 76 °. soil 78 * ; May 4, atmosphere 40 °, soil 47° , May 11, atmosphere 77 °, soil 75 °. ItKD CI.OVKIt. AVe find that tho sowings of red clover from March 23 to April 13 made good stands. After April 13 the stands became gradual!}' thinner, until the crop was only one-fourth of a stand, and the weeds more and more in possession. The first three sowings were cut for hay. The sowing of March 23 made three tons and 1,200 pounds to the acre, the, second, March 30, made two tons and ],OOU pounds; tho third, April (i, two tons 800 pounds to the acre. The sowings April , 'JO and I!7 were sufiiciently good for a e yets some information, but he is nev- | ] iay crc ,p y, 0 following year. Tho May master of it. j Bowings were too thin for any purpose.

Braley of tho Fall Elver Folico Is highly gratified with Hood's Sarsaparllla. He was badly run down, had no appetite, what ho did cat caused distress and ho felt tired all tho time. A few bottles of Hood's Sarsaparllla effected n marvellous change. Tho distress in tho stomach is entirely gone, ho feels HUo a now mr.n, and can cat anything with old-time relish. For all of which ho thanks and cordially recommends Hood's Sarsaparllla. It is very important that during ttio months of Dlarch April Ma? tho blood should be thoroughly purified and the system bo given strength to withstand tho debilitating effect of tho changing season. For this purpose Hood's Sarsaparllla possesses peculiar merit and it is the Beat Spring JTIcdiciuc. Tho following, Just received, demonstrates its wonderful blood- purlfylng powers: "C.

The sowing on April 'JO was only a par tial stand, and almost free from rust. It heemcd as if the soy/ing of twenty pounds of seed to the acre may have been too much, tho plants growing so thick were smaller, and weaker, and perhaps more liable to rust. The March '-.', sowing gave us one ton and 1,200 pounds an acre. The April 13 Bowing, a. thinner stuud, gave two tons and ;i_0 pounds an acre. The question of heavy seeding and rust remains open. On October ^; the March l?l! sowing was a good stand, even, anci looked perfectly hardy, green, and three inches high. The March iiO sowing was not so good as the first.
