Head tho Iowa Bulletin No. 15, for practical information about sowing grass seeds. The pri/e winner at the late dairy convention nt Madison was taught his busi. ness by Mr. Leighton, the instructor in dairying at Ames. One of tho most profitable studies for the farmer in regarding the wastes In feeding. It is waste to feed what is not best assimilated. Some of our butter sells in the East for seventy-five per cent, more than other brands. A big tuition fee surely, to pay for experience. It costs many farmers more for commissions on their stock when sent to market than their school taxes, and many dairymen more to pay commissions than to pay freight. Boston must have its butter put up 'in spruce tubs and New York demands ash tubs. The butter in the former holds out in weight, In the latter there is shrinkaga Is it in the tubs? The general neglect of good sires among cattle breeders is resulting In a rapid decrease in the quality of the feeding steer. Cattle are reported increasing by the last census, but the enumeration was more complete. Bulletin 15 of the Iowa station finds that sub-soiling is necessary in growing sugar beets. The plants grow long and smooth. A larger per cent, contains sugar. They also seem to improve as the season advances, in sugaring. Com.

SOWfl ,vr^«S? : ' ^lif^:'. |I L f< Ing expressed Warm opinions of him, wo advise all Who sell to him to feed their own corn to their bwn steers and make tho profits themselves. Mr. Baker will make money anyway. He has enough already. The farmer's isolation fosters individuality. Ho feels very independent and always acts upon It. He prefers to have so much money to spend as he pleases in institute work all by himself,rather than be part of a system that would economize money in the traveling expenses of those who help. A central head could fix routes as politicians do, so that helpers could address new audiences every day. Busy men hesitate to lose half a week for one talk. But wo are only waking up. We will rub our eyes and see more and farther, and for the general good we will sink part of our inbred independence, The young farmer, who has life-long object lessons to recollect, family traditions to call up, extensive reading regarding farm topics, precept and example from fatner and neighbors, is much more likely to center his ambitions and arrange future plans for life-long devotion to the farm, than one who ha% none of these things to attach him to the cultivation of the soil and the development of domestic animals. Many farmers that are leaving tho farm for town life were led to adopt agricultural pursuits because lands were cheap or for the taking up in early days. There is a natural movement toward dairying. It paya and beef making does not pay, except with good blood and well arranged management. Beef is in the power of combines. Butter is not Iowa can make the best butter and have more profit in the making of it than any of her competitors. The East has been competing by using strenuous efforts to make superior goods. The East, however, has everything to contend with that threatens to cut off profits. We have all kinds of feed cheap. The East must buy more than half what the cows eat. The complete development of western dairying will relegate more eastern lands to woods every year. and good speak. . . The legislature proposes to give each county $50 to hold institutes, but no supervising head. The trouble will come in economizing time and expense of speakers. We have to spend three days quite often to help one institute, when arrangement might help three in the same time. Oh, how terribly independent farmers are. Test the seeds. Dealers refuse to guarantee. The land devoted to a crop should all be at work. If we leave bare places the weeds will come. Seed that will grow is not always good. We should have strong seed, vigorous seed of all kinds, pure seed true to name, and a world of the stuff we buy is not such. Iowa has room for home seed concerns that we can rely on. Correct methods get all the butter fat in milk into butter. Losses in separating and churning are reduced to very small percentages if everything is well managed. The separator gets all tho fat out of the milk and the churn maKes it into butter if the ripening of the cream has been properly attended to. There are great losses in many creameries, but they are the result of bad management. There is a feeling that a farmer is spoiled by book learning. Books tell us the stories of the experience of past generations. There is a sentiment that a farmer's education should bo to develop tho mind, and Creek is as good as anything. Hut in this work-a-day generation the discipline of head and hand should go together in the direction of useful industry, (lentlemen of leisure may study generally. The alliance people of the State, through their ollicers, have prepared a bill placing all the railway taxes in the State treasury. At present those taxes do not go to the benefit of the whole people, but only a part of them. If they arc put in tho State treasury they will equally benefit all. Kqual taxation is a fair proposition. The past and present seo much that is very unequal. Not only does much property escape taxation, but there is very unfair disposition of moneys collected. Tho whole chapter needs overhauling'. Hoard's Dairyman takes a remarkable position on the economic saving of a corn crop. It says: "It is now standard truth * * given a matured corn crop ready to be harvested, it costs less in time and money to cut it into silo than it does to harvest it in any other way and put the crop in shape to feed animals in the same barn." The paper then goes on to tell of the benefits of silage, with which we agree substantially. We have considered with care the economy of saving corn in shocks and in silage, and' can not come to the above conclusion. We do not think it is now "standard truth." It is only the opinion of the Dairyman. We think highly of silage, but given a field of matured corn to save in the few days it can be saved in, and a limited number of hands to save it, one man will save two acres in shock while he saves one in the silo. i .'!< g ii/id }>iiyiiiij; HOIK- hill the c o] n; result in rich vdunu' of , r ;mi to Duality IIP, pure tintl of outsidi', llni-, uvoidir door, und t'.-.crci'ore hound ncll :.

Direct all correspondence tg Box 36, GLIDDBN, IOWA, Supt. of low* ftgejicieij. The South grows as a market for our western products. The development of the mineral resources of the South and the increase of population consequent upon the development, will steadily call for more of our farm crops. The cheapening of transportation places our farms closer to southern consumers, and places northern markets closer to them -as far as the sale of their fruits, early vegeta, bles, tobacco and cotton are concerned. The southern fanner can not produce any staple field crop suited to our latitude as cheaply as we can. It is not easy to limit the market of the western farmer. Our friend, Hichard Haker, of Dubu- iiue county, buys his neigbors' steers and corn and feeds, and sells fine fat bullocks every spring and with the profits buys a farm every year, and with the profits of Ids farms helps along the Homes, schools and churches of Iowa, and gives everybody object lessons as he goes along. We admire Mr. Baker as a typical Iowa farmer who philosophlcfl- ly studies his business and does good in bis day and generation- Suqb. spnjftftfc' * MMl TO ESCAPE COMBINES. The dairy is the readiest avenue of escape from the exactions of the beef combine. We would not advise abandonment of beef making, but we do advise turning a large per cent, of the feed now going into beef, into butter. Let the Iowa farmer breed only the best cattle for beef, and finish them thoroughly, and turn all of the rest of his crops into what is not in control of combines. Many things go free as far as combinations to depress prices are concerned. Butter made in Iowa goes to the sea- hoard in refrigerator cars and sells on its nerits. From two to three cents per lound is the difference between Iowa nd New York or Boston. Iowa can bid leflanco to all competition in butter making. No State or nation has grass ind grain so abundant as we have, 'orn is always cheaper than it is farther ast. We do not. yet save in any shape i tithe of our corn fodder. Let other people who can not make butter make )eef of the poorer qualitiesund fight it out with the fellows who get rebates rom thu railways. We should help them, of course, but it is our privilege to lo better if we can, and we can. Iowa s both the great beef and butter State, because it is the great corn and grass State. We should entirely abandon the production of the cheaper grades of beef and make only the best. It takes long years to tone up a herd of cattle from low selling to high selling. It only requires organisation and a good outfit, with a skillful butter maker, to make the, finest butter that will sell on its merits anywhuiv. Iowa could escape the Big Four very fast this way. Legislation will slop their rebates some day, but we know how slow public sentiment moves. Thousands of Iowa farmers are independent through the cow now. They all can be independent. If we made no beef but the best, we would have more profit in it, und more customers to buy it. Besides, the hog that now has possession of so many farms would find his place as incidental to the farm instead of being the leading feature of too many farms. The cow and her progeny keep the farm productive. Her pasture grows rich as cultivated fields grow poor. This is our way of escape. Many observing people wonder why an independent vocation like dairying does not possess the land entirely. There are reasons. The habit of milking must be learned. Original in the shape of love for fast horses prevails. Want of eky! to JB%ke buttej fceeps b»ck. tM&ttfi OF COBN FODDER. STBAWBEBBY POINT, Iowa. — Parties around here who have unhusked corn fodder of medium quality, wish to sell It, as they do not have machinery to cut it. Some wish to buy. Neither party knows what to ask or pay, so for the benefit of your numerous readers, will you kindly answer tho following questions: If tame hay is worth $8 per ton, what should such corn fodder be sold at? What kind of clover do you recommend for an Improved dairy farm? Take In account that we get a crop hay of the Medium or June clover before growing tho crop for seed. That we can pasture .the Mammoth clover till, say June 15, the growth after that will be shorter and much better If It has to be used for hay Instead of feed. S. HEBRON. If the corn Is an average crop and the cutting has been done in season when the corn was dented, and put Into 144 hills to the shock, so that It has a large per cent, of nice, green fodder, it will make valuable feed. You can easily estimate the value of corn by market prices. Then we have tho fodder to estimate and put a price on. You ask if tame hay is worth $8 a ton, what such corn fodder should sell at. It depends on what the tamojhay is. Stewart's tables give the nutritive ratio and value of different hays as follows: Timothy, 1 to 12.7, value, 62 cents a cwt.; red top, 1 to 11.3, 02 cents; orchard grass, 1 to 10.4, 03 cents; clover, 1 to 5.0, 77 cents; maize— stover, 1 to 14.7, 43 cents; inaiz§—fod- der, 1 to 14, 53 cents. Mr. Hebron can make estimates from these prices. Maize stover is stalks with corn husked off—a New England name. Maize fodder is corn as it grows. When sown thickly for fodder, Prof. Henry estimates the eara at 63 and the stalks at 37, both equaling 100. But it is a very difficult matter to get exactly at the relative value of hays and fodders. Hay cut jyoung is far more nutritious than hay cut more advanced. Dr. Collier, while chemist of the United States .agricultural department, analyzed many of our grasses and reports: Timothy, spike invisible, nutritive ratio, 1.47; timothy, spike visible, 1.51; timothy before bloom, 1.50; timothy, full bloom, 1.03. The farmer must judge when to cut If he cuts when the spike is invisible, he will get the most; nutritious hay, but lers of it. If he waits for full bloom he will get the heaviest crop, but less nutritious. Take red clover: Red clover before head, nutritive ratio, 1.2; red clover, head formed, 1.2; red clover, full bloom, 1.3; red clover, in seed, 1.38. We see that young clover has as high a nutritive ratio as skim milk or oil cake, while poorly saved clover hay may be no better than half cured corn fodder. Mr. Hebron asks what kind of clover we recommend for a dairy farm. The red medium is the universal clover, but we would sow white with it and alsike on damp spots, and Mammoth to plow under or to kill out wild grass, and perhaps for hay, if cut early, or for soiling, if to be repeatedly cut. We doubt if dairy farmers can afford to let 'the second cut go for seed. It is very valuable for the cow in the fall to mix with her corn fodder or ensilage. One can not eat the cake and have it too. We would suggest good clover hay for hogs in winter instead of corn fodder. The hog is a grass outing animal. We have known them wintered on prairie hay, but they come out thin. Tho Quelph experimenters found mangels raw would keep a hog alive; but not cooked. I have eight full blooded key Gobblers that I will sell cl ty considered. T. J.

AVOOA, Iowa.—Will you tell me what causes scab in sheep and how it may be detected? Also, how many teeth a sheep has when fnli mouthed—8 or 10? JOHN LEDEVICK. Scab in sheep is the work of a parasite called icarus, that burrows in the skin. It is killed with sulphur mixed in lard. The sheep should not get wet after the application. Tobacco will Icill the parasite, hut is clangorous, as it sickens the sheep. Remove affected sheep, as it goes rapidly from one to another. Watch closely, as it may re-appear. The sheep has eight incisors or cutting teeth, six molars on both jaws, above and below. The sheep has no teeth above, like the cow. Get "Youatt on Sheep," and you will find many useful'hints about them. George Franklin gives us a useful weekly talk on sheep in the Homestead. He keeps sheep and knows what he is talking about. See your sheep every day and study them. Look into the wool and see if any enemy is hiding there. Sheep should be kept free from all parasites.

Also, which is best, to feed bran wet or iry to horses or cows? CLAY PLATNEK. We do not think that there is much difference between white and yellow corn grown for years in the same soil and climate. IJowever, this is a line of inquiry that is worth looking into s and will be. Corn varies from one ' part of albuminoids to eight carbo-hydrates to one to eleven, and (here is really the principal feeding difference. Southerners assert that their corn has a less proportion of fat formers and consequently answers their climate best. As regards the feeding of bran, we do not think it makes much difference provided it is not made into slop. That, we think, would carry it along past the first stomach, whence it would not return for cubing- This brings up a controverted ?. 9. ., "^-jfawdipor, w 9 LESSINO, Algona, Iowa. i S: Original STATE OF fOWA, I Kossuth County, t In the District Court of said county.
