CHEYENNE, Wy., April 23.—Charles Miller, aged 17, the German boy who killed two young men in a box car near' here, was executed at the county jail during the morning. The death machine was so contrived that Miller's weight sprung the trap. His neck was broken and the body cut down in eighteen minutes. The boy had announced that he would make a speech and sing an original ditty on the scaffold but a priest persuaded him from giving an entertainment. Miller prayed fervently to the last. He was quite composed, showing no fear of death. Seventy persons, including the twelve sheriffs of the state, witnessed the hanging. DEMOCRATIC 11A RMONY.

In September, 18'JU, Charles Miller, then 15 years old, shot and killed Walilo Emerson aud Ross T. Fishbaugh in a box car on the Union Pacific railroad, forty miles east of Cheyenne. Emerson and Fishbaugh were respectable young men of St. Joseph, Mo., who had set out to reach Deliver by a free ride. The evidence clearly showed that both youths were murdered in cold blood for the money which they had in their possession. Miller was in their company and disappeared after the murder. He was located in a small town in Kansas and arrested. He was taken to the scene of the murder aud finally confessed his crime. Ho has twice escaped from jail. He has maintained an air of absolute indifference as to his fate and expects to die gamely. Hanged at >"e»v Orleans.

Beyond these we have few good shade trees. For wood plant the white willow and also for wind breaks. The poplar family planted from cuttings years ago die . early.

The wooded landscape ' is much the finest. : The Storrs experiment station, Conn., has been going into analysis of food very freely. The station must do much work ot this kind before we get safe conclusions concerning the nutritive value of the various things we eat ourselves as well as what we feed our animals. But as the work progresses the mysteries of the past* clear up. Common terms are valuable ' and are becoming household words, and the distance will become wider between the student of nutrition and those who do not study. Bulletin 1C of the Iowa station has an article giving practical hints to beginners in dairying by Instructor Leighton that is good reading. Prof. Osborne has an article on the parasites that infest domestic animals. Prof. Pammell treats fungicides. Prof. Curtiss reports upon growing grains and potatoes.

We think the gentleman has taken a position not authorized by Iowa farmers, and venture the prediction that next winter Will prove It. Twenty dif ferent institutes will flfc upon the same dayj and ten of them will invite the same men to attend. Mr Klinefolter boasts that he has secured a law that will do away with all such outside help. He has invited more censure than we think he deserves. The resulting ill will will fall on the heads of invited men who, can not attend at more than one place at once. , The Homestead never did anything to please us more than giving us the pictures of the great corn growers of the State. This is an industrial age and has its heroes. The man who grows a hundred bushels of corn to the acre proclaims tothe world many things. Ho advertises Iowa as no bureau can. He holds out new prospects to the young men of Iowa who are studying agriculture. He announces the discovery of unsuspected treasures in our soil that double the income of the farmers of the State. He heralds a coming day when the price of our lands will greatly advance. He admonishes, educators that Iowa, that has more students than any State of like population, can afford to educate all her sons and daughters. He assures good people that bountiful Iowa will have plenty .to do with at home and abroad.

We feed corn around out doors in troughs, whole, to be trampled in the mud, made cunpalat- able by contact with different breaths and saliva, by feeding it dry and having it pass through 1 the alimentary canal without digestion, by feeding it alone without regard to nutritive principles. All this we do, and those who do are flndinglittle or no profit, and are quitting in disgust, or may be changing their breed of stock, or may be selling corn for what it will bring in the market to be fed at double the price or four imes the price farther east. We must ecognize the fact that we are the most vasteful feeders on , earth. A complete enewal.of our operations must take ilace, and when this comes about we vill feed with profit. , Steers must be tied up and fed in comfortable stables. There is no other way to feed econom- cally. Feed must be put in assimilable condition, corn must be soaked or round where hogs are not by to act as scavengers. The profits have vanished from old, wasteful ways of feeding and new ways must be adopted. C01LN PLANTING. WATERLOO. Iowa.- -I notice in the farm department of the Iowa btate Reporter an inquiry in regard to , plowing, blue grass sod for corn in the spring. I see you advise early plowing. I will give you my way of managing BOd. 1 I waft until I get through planting the rest of my corn—say about the 20th of May. If possible 1 pasture the sod which will be worth considerable up to that time. Then take a 14 or 10- inch turf or sod plow with a pointer instead ot a rolling coulter. This pointer cuts and turns ^a small strip or ribbon which falls under the main sod, making a flat surface. The middle of the sod will be higher than the edg«s, making It nice to drive over with planter and making, no kinks. Plow four or five Inches deep. Then drop in rows—one way—dropping two or three kernels every three feet or less. If the land is very rich let'the dropper pull the lever every time the horse puts down his hind foot and it will be about right. Let the planter run deep enough to put the corn out -of sight • atid it will need no dragging until the corn begins to come up. Plow very shallow so as not to tear up the sod. Just kill the surface weeds. .Two plowings is usually enough. I find I can raise better corn this way,with less labor, and the sod being plowed when it Is growing it rots better than when plowed earlier, and if the corn is cut up or the stalks removed, the. next spring all I have to do is to go over 'twice CHEAP FARMS IN- • ,,-.

The prisoner was immediately taken West. with the pulverizer, then drag and it is ready for another crop. .. W. A. WILSON,. The plan of our correspondent would do better in a wet season than in a dry one, and while they would get a fair crop perhaps by plowing so late, it is not so reliable as it would be if plowing were done sooner and the land were better pulverized. We have gone through the same experience of plowing -every week from April 1 to June 1, and plant- ing.corn on all the. plowings, and had the best crops from the earlier plowings. We avoid spring plowing of sod altogether, when we can. One ' will' get caught occasionally, however. Soils differ. A light sandy loam will give .better corn plowed late and not pulverized than a stiffer soil will.. Farmers must judge of conditions, and sod pastured very close will be more pliable than icavy rooted soils with heavy coats of grass. Our experience .with blue grass sod is that it takes plenty of team work ,o get spring plowing ready for a flrst- rate corn crop.

' ^ •• ' " •' - ' ' • The professor of agriculture of Nebraska University writes to Dr. Stalker regarding the proposed legislation of last winter relative to the eradication of hog cholera. He concludes that that is the only practical method by which the hog plague can be got rid of. This is the institution around which the culture inoculation theory rages. We hope Bro. Gabrilson will weigh all the Nebraska influences pro and con, wild and tame, before lending his influence In our State to the inoculation theory of getting rid of the swine plague. A writer in the London Live Stool Journal makes a point relative to ex eluding blemished horses from competition that is worthy of consideration. He claims that horses that have grown to nuiturity and gone through training without developing any latent weakness should not be excluded from the show ring by the veterinarian, even should he in older age show injuries caused by usage. The writer was treating the hunting horse, but the observation is pertinent to all horses and to all animals. It may be difficult for the veterinarian to toll always whether a blemish is acquired or congenital, but when it is acquired it is not twismlssable except in rare instances. The horsemen of Iowa have petitioned the agricultural society to follow Kuropean customs in this regard, and this should be one of the limitations. Hot Griddle Cakes, Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder possesses a peculiar merit not approached by that of any other baking powder. It produces the hot buckwheat, Indian or wheat cakes, hot biscuit, doughnuts, waffles or muffins. Any of these tasteful things may be eaten when hot with impunity by persons of the most delicate digestive organs. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder leavens without fomentation or decomposition. IiThs preparation none but the purest of cream of tartar, soda, etc. ia used, and in such exact equivalents as to always guarantee a perfectly neutral result, thereby giving the natural and sweet ilavor peculiar to buckwheat and other flour that may be used, the natural flavor so much desired and ap preciated by all. The oldest patrons of Dr. Prices powder tell the story, that they can never get the same results from any other leavening agent, that their griddle cakes, biscuit?, etc. are never so light and never taste so sw^t or so good as The Minnesota station flnds there is no more loss of fat in the whey when the milk is rich in fat than when it is poor. The loss was four-tenths of one per cent, with milk testing 2.8 and the same with milk testing 5. -1 per cent. The cheese from milk testing 7.0 per cent, fat left 0.7 per cent, in the milk. Cream was ad ded to ascertain how much fat cheese would contain and it is found by the experimenter, Prof. Snyder, that it is be tween (5 and 7.0 per cent. It has been insisted upon by prominent cheese an thorities that if much above 3 per cent of fat is left in the milk it will be lost in the whey. This is now proven—as 1 has been before—to be an error. Thu the last refuge of the skimmer is being exposed and plain stealing is the only true name to apply to robbing cheese of its natural fut. Either Mr. Klinefelter, of Mason City, does not know whu* the farmers want when he opposes speakers from abroad to address institutes, or the farmers have cliansed their minds .suddenly. He claims authorship of th| i^Jea . to econojpgle ifee time THE BABN. There is much economy in the proper construction of farm barns. Some years ago a prejudice existed against bank barns that has caused the erection of many on levels. The bank barn is very convenient, and if the lower floor is cemented to avoid odors and is lined to avoid dampness there should be no objection to it. It is most convenient because feed can be placed in it by gravity. The necessity of keeping milk cows and young things comfortable during extreme weather demands places for them where they will not suffer. Water is becoming a necessity in a barn. Stock should not be turned out of doors in extreme weather, that is confined all winter. The chill is the worst enemy of the milk cow. Cement iloors that will not absorb liquids are a_ necessity, if we would have a pleasant'atmosphere. The hay fork suggests high posts and economy in shingles. Many of us built as we could compass the means and added to as we found it necessary. There are very few handy barns, and convenience in housing feed and feeding it out is a very necessary consideration. Room in barns to house hay pays quite as well as money expended for any other farm im- irovement. Room for roots and ensilage s now recognized as a necessity, and the cellar or bank style gives an opportunity. In short, this subject can be profit- \bly considered in advance of building by every farmer. Capacity for hay and grain and roots, comfort for animals, water in the barn, the horse fork to bestow and convenience in feeding, good floors aud ventilation are the main prerequisites. How to combine all economically is a nice study. WORSE AND WORSE. Prof. Hanboru now squarely takes the position that a scrub animal will fatten as fast, lay on as much liesh, grow in weight as much with the same feed as any of the well bred breeds of cattle. He cites experiments made by certain sta> tiou feeders. The citation, if correct,, is so much thu worse for the experimenters. If our stations are manned to any great extent by gentlemen who reach such conclusions, all we have to say is, the people will not believe them. As regards thu professor, he gives abundant evidence of never having properly fed a well bred animal in his life. Let him follow the sales of prime cattle in Chicago and see if he finds one single gale to "corroborate iis views. The Iowa REEF PROSPECTS. The low prices for beef will have a depressing^ effect on .otu- competitors farther east who feed with grainsbought of us. Whatever profit there might be for us in making the better grades of beef, there is less and less for them. The tendency to gradually supplant live meats with dead meats is certainly bringing about a greater uniformity in the values of meats ia different localities. The eastern feeder is feeding more than the western feeder, the effects of the combination that keeps down the prices to producers and raises them to consumers, consequently the more the beef trust turns the screws the more eastern feeders are ; pressed out of the business. So far this has been the result, and the future will.see more of it. A. striking feature of the beef trust operations is the working of it in harmony with the Tory government of Great Britain. As orders in council come nearer the point of shutting out our livo beeves altogether, the dead meat trade Increases. As soon as they shut off our live beeves, our beef trusts will gradually get control over there, just as they have gotten control over here. It will not be half as great an undertaking for the beef trust to control prices of beef in the British Islands as it has been to get control here. It nas been accomplished here through rebates from railroads, by which products are carried cheaper than other parties can have them carried. Our grains will not go abroad to make beefas much as they have in the past. To this waste our people are getting their eyes open. The tendency will be to feed the steer near the corn field and ship him dead. This will give the corn belt of the country the making of beef. It goes east much cheaper than'the grain that makes it, and profits are being pressed down so low that we must stop selling thin steers and corn and feed ourselves. This is the evident tendency being hastened by our common enemy—the beef combine. We are paying dearly for our lessons, bub we are getting the lessons all right enough, albeit we are not likely to love the teacher. The growing influence of the farmers will some day stop the rebates on the railways, when capital a»d skill will compete with the Big Three or Big Four, or. whatever names the rascals ;go by, and beef can then «p to market as butter njow goes, 'HQweyer hard.we tire; hit, the eastern feeder catches it more. He will quit entirely. ^ We must deter- m&e ho>Y ty nju&e Jieftf with a projBt^ if indeed the trust will petiptt it* €er- RJLEY & YOUNG'S Combination SLUT and WIRE FENCI It Is a fence for open countries, for it-canyl be blown down.
