Aa Oklahoma Experiment Station i"epoft says: The heavy rainfall of 1898 had its Influence on the farm crops. In general plants grew ranker and taller. Under similar conditions In plowed land the soil moisture was 1.5 per cent higher for the whole year than In 1897. In ordinary prairie sod there was almost 8 per cent Increase. The differences in soil moisture and yield of crops on plats under different treatment was not so marked as In a dryer season. Of eight plats plowed at different depths,, one plowed four inches deep and one subsoiled to a depth of fifteen inches gave smallest yields. The subsoiled plat contained more moisture than any other of the eight. Two plats containing 17.6 per cent of moisture during March were plowed similarly one week apart. The plats plowed April 4 contained 16.3 per cent during April; that April 11, 14.1 per cent. Stubble ground plowed about Juno 35 had 14.9 per cent of moisture July 15; while that not plowed had 10.9 per cent. Wheat stub- bio plowed July 28 had one-fourth more moisture on August 30 than stubble not plowed. September 9 the stubble that was plowed July 28 had one- third more moisture than stubble plowed September 1. Rolling the soil In the spring did not Increase the moisture in the surface foot. Bottom land planted in com had more moisture In the surface during July and less during the first half of August than upland with the same crop. Oats sown March 14, at the depth of one and two inches came up several days sooner and 10 to 30 per cent better than when planted four to six inches deep. Planted March 25 there was but little difference in the number that came up when planted one, two, four or six inches deep, but the deepest plantings came up slower. Indian corn planted March 14 came up very poorly. None planted six inches deep came up. Planted March 25 there was a fair stand at different depths. Planted March 28 one and two inches deep gave almost a perfect stand, while that planted four and six inches deep gave a poor stand. April 4 and 11 the best stand was secured from planting four inches deep. For later plantings corn came up better when planted one and two Inches deep. In general it is best to plant shallow in moist soil and early in the season. In late planting and in dry soil a more satisfactory stand can be had and the corn will come up sooner if planted about four inches deep. Kafir com is much" more easily harmed by wet and cold weather than Indian corn and should be planted about a month later. Planted one or two inches deep it will come up better than if planted deeper. It may be counted a good stand if 50 to 75 per cent of the grains planted come up. suitable wire mesh teasel, for ten mln- tites In hot water, at ft temperature o 133 degrees Fahrenheit Then dry on smut-free surface, cooling quickly by thoroughly stirring, or cold water may be employed to cool the grain. Remember, these temperatures are to be determined by a thermometer; longer Immersion than ten minutes, at that temperature, may Injure the grain. 2. Bluestone, Copper Sulfate. Make a solution at the rate of one pound to five gallons of water; in this solution Immerse the seed wheat, freed front the smut balls as before described, for ten minutes. Allow to stand ten minutes In sack to drain, then spread and dry with air-slaked lime, shoveling over frequently. Or by sprinkling, use the above solution at the rate of one gallon to one bushel of grain in heap. Apply by sprlnkllng-can at intervals of five or ten minutes; stir the whole so as to be uniformly wet; at the end, say, of one hour, shovel over and dry with lima, if desired. 3. Formalin. This may be used al the rate of one pound to fifty gallons of water and the seed treated by sprinkling or by immersion for thirty minutes. For loose smut of wheat—Modified hot water treatment as follows: Soak the seed grain for four hours in cold water, let stand four hours more in the wet sacks; then immerse for five minutes in hot water at a temperature of 133 degrees Fahrenheit; spread at once on a smut-free surface to dry, and sow. Uso one-halt' more seed to replace that injured by the treatment.

Review of Reviews. We know what the railroads did last year; We know what the manufacturers <I1<5; we know what the merchants did. In a year, then, like 1898, when records in so many branches of American industry were smashed, what did the American farmer do? Balance sheets are unhappily scarce among farmers; the few which are taken are hard to get at; for these reasons the one here presented is of especial Interest. It Is not from a paper farm; It Is not a paper balance; nor is It a paper farmer who makes this show- earth. IIurilluDss of Trees. From Farmers' Review: The De~ partment of Horticulture has for several years been co-operating with the division of forestry of the Department of Agriculture to test the hardiness of trees produced from seeds sent from various sections of the country, north and south, east and west. The seeds were planted in plats having the same soil and exposure and have been subjected to the same conditions. On March 7, 1898, notes were made on the effects of the winter upon the trees, and some striking facts were revealed. As a rule no injury was to be noted from the winter on trees grown from seed sent from states either north or west of this point. On the other hand, trees from seed sent in from points southeast of this were very generally injured from the cold. The injury varied with both the species of trees and the location. Black walnut showed the greatest injury of any species and was most affected when the seed had come from the southeastern coast region—Georgia and Alabama. This point, besides being of scientific interest in showing the decided effect of climate on the constitutionality of plants, has also a practical value for the tree planter. It shows that trees from seed grown at southeastern points must suffer more or less when subjected to this climate, and suggests that young trees transplanted from the same regions would be even more seriously affected. Further experiments along the same line are in progress under direction meat of the depart- Erevontloa of Smut lu Wheat. The Ohio Agricultural Experiment t5ta,tion has, for several years past, conducted experiments in the prevention of the smuts in wheat. There are 'Jbund OR wheat In Ohio, loose smut »nd stinking smut. The loose smut IB that noticeable at blossoming time, which destroys, usually, the entire sad. It IB, perhaps, more general, Utough usually much less destructive than the stinking smut, which converts toe kernels of wheat into masses of lark brown, Ill-smelling fungus spores. This statioa has been successful In preventing both of. these smuts and .•ecommendg the following methods: For stinking smut In wheat.— In all ;he methods employed for stinking Hnut H |8 prpbably advisable to im- grain first in cold water, stirring, a,nd to skim off the smut ball? which will, in this manner; 'rise & tfee top of. the water. After this is either of the {ollovrjUjg treat' Fruit Orowlnp In Northern Ittlclilffnn. At a farmers' institute held recently at Gand Traverse, Mich., A. P. Gray gave his ideas upon "Fruit Growing in Northern Michigan." He said he would not present his remarks as lawyer does, from one side only, but would give both the advantages am disadvantages. Said he: "One advantage we have in northern Michigan is that we have one hour more sunlight than Ohio and Indiana. Some of the disadvantages arc the cold climate, long winters and dry soil. Location is a great subject to be considered. High ground is important for fruit trees; the cold sinks Into the valleys, and the heat from the valleys rises and keeps the trees from freezing. The years we have had the least rain we have had the best fruit, and the grain those years was of the very- best quality. It takes a long drouth to affect a tree. Fruit trees do not yield much real profit under ten years of age. Slow growth, however, is our salvation, for when trees mature early they decay early. The farther north fruit will mature, the better Its quality. Fruit growing is being pushed farther north each year. We are gaining in this respect." ATake Your Own Plant Cuttings. The cuttings of the plants to be used In the flower garden should be rooted during the months of February or March. Geraniums made during these months should be covered with blooms during the summer months if they are given proper care. Other plants that add greatly to the beauty of the garden, and which may be propagated by cuttings, are the Coleus, Iresine, Al- thermanthera and Centaura. These plants all root readily from cuttings, they can be started in a cutting box in the window, which should be as long and wide as desired, for the limited space and about four or fives inches deep. It should be filled with clean river sand. When the cuttings are first made they should be shaded during the heat of the clay and sprinkled several times a day until the cuttings become thoroughly established. The sand should always be kept moist, but never wet. Cuttings are often rooted in a deep plate filled with moist sand. There are various contrivances used for rooting cuttings, but in each case the rooting medium is clean moist sand. Soil Is apt to become soggy.—W. H. Moore in Farmers' Review. How to Kill the Leaf Hopper. From warmers' Review: Leaf hopper, Thrip and Erythroneura vitis are all different names for one small insect, which is often very numerous on grape vines during summer. It is about an eighth of an inch long, of a light color, and marked by three dark red bands. They fly from their position on the under side of the leaves when the vines are shaken and soon light again. To combat them in the summer when their destructive work is noticeable Is difficult. Now is the time. They may be found under the leaves near the vines. If the vineyard is cleaned of all litter and this promptly burned many will be destroyed. The Insects remaining on the ground can be killed by a spray of coal oil emulsion. way be employed; ttUs American-Grown Chicory. — American-grown chicory ha& to contend against strong prejudice upon the part of ignorant foreigners who have become accustomed to a certain brand in the mother country, and insist upon having It here. There is also bitter opposition on the part of men who have established factories in this country for finishing the root imported from Europe, in some instances from their own estates or farms. As far as quality is concerned the American root is fully equal to the imported article, and would win its way upon its merits were it not for the two mentioned forces opposing it. The department ; feels confident that, were the opposition overcome, the American market could be supplied with home-grown chicory, and the money which has been annually going abroad could be retained among our own people. It is gratifying in this connection that progress ta being made, and that American chioory lp »OW seen upon tfce market lit teir auwtttyHtoWftl New Inp?. It Is what no American review has ever before presented to Us readers—an actual glimpse at the books and workings of a model American farm. This farm, located in the state of Iowa, contains 6,000 acres and Its business Is to produce corn. Look first at the investment and note that the land was not bought -in an early day for a song, but within three years and, at the market price. Investment, Towa corn farm: r.tinil.

The planting must of necessity be done by machinery, and to secure the maximum yield three seed kernels must be dropped In each hill. If five drop in, that hill is lost to the profit account; If only one, It Is partially lost. But perfect as American farming machinery Is, It does not leave the factory perfect enough to Insure against Irregular planting. Patiently and by a series of exhaustive tests the planter plates are so adjusted to the size of the seed kernels for each year that they will deposit an average of sixty-five kernels to every twenty hills, and not more than four nor less than two in any one. So great are the precautions that before the seed Is shelled the tips and butts of the seed ears- are cut off to secure kernels of an even size. When the 3,800 acres of corn are up and ready, seventy-six two-horse cultivators are put into It. The point In the first cultivation one way, and In the SQcond the other way, is to get as close as possible to the corn; but after the pains taken to place it there, no plant must be left covered by a clod of The field-hand must uncover it, STORYETTEB.

It has produced for its owner seventeen .successive crops, one of which alone netted him $72,000. The two expense accounts show curious differences. In Iowa men are hired for the entire crop season of eight months at $18 and board per month. In Dakota they are hired for the actual seeding- in the spring and the harvesting; in the fall at from $1.50 to $3 per day. In the end the labor, or money-wage account, is about the same thing, as will be seen; but the house supply account Is much heavier on the corn farm. On the corn farm the Item of repairs was nominal, the plant under present ownership being new, while the items of 'repairs" and "machines" on the wheat farm represent the average annual expenditure for replacing and keeping up Lhe machinery. Twine is naturally the larger Item on the wheat farm. The [owa, farm supplies its own fuel. On the Dakota farm coal is required. Here, too, note that the corn farm is planted with GOO bushels of corn, cost- ng $180, while to seed the wheat farm requires 8,000 bushels of wheat, worth in 1898 $8,000. Again, in Dakota 500 acres of oats barely feeds the 160 head of mules, while in Iowa 250 acres of corn 'eeds the same number easily. These differences, together with the seed difference and the twine difference, aome- ;imes handicap the profit account of ths wheat farm $10,000 a year to start with. How It WHS Dune. The essentials of a profitable farm are food land, well drained, but not too roll- ng. and accessibility to reasonable transportation. Six thousand acres bens about three miles square makes the argest farm which can be operated to advantage from a single station; a arger acreage simply means two or nore farms. About April 1 men and mules more on the fields in battalions. Four-horsa seeders, four-foot harrows and slx- lorse gang-plows maneuver for six veeks like an army, sowing small grain, plowing and -planting corn. The minute the small grain is sown, thirty-one jorn planters are thrown behind the plows, and in this work lies largely the success or failure of the crop. Nota, for instance, the pains taken in selecting the seed corn. A perfect stand of corn la the first requisite of a large yield. From a choice piece of land previously planted with selected seed about 2,000 bushels of the finest ears are taken. From these an expert selects 600 bushels. These ears are placed, on racks In a building arranged especially for a seed house. Whatever the thermometer registers in Iowa, the temperature in that seed house never falls below freezing. All this insures the highest possible germinating power ire tke seed, and that & ca.se # £ and a foreman on horseback behind each twenty men is held responsible for his crew's work. In the t^jlrd and final cultivation, the earth Is thrown up against the plant, the small weeds in the hill being smothered and the large ones pulled by hand. It will be of Interest to merchants and to theological professors to learn that It Is not the weed in the row, but the one in the hill, which rnars the beauty of the balance- sheet. In harvesting the small grain, it Is threshed directly from the shock, saving the cost of stacking and rehandllng. ICIevntors provide against heating. A further saving of G to 8 per cent over the operations of a small farmer Is ef- feeli-cl in shipping to terminal points instead of selling to local grain buyers. Future options may also be sold against the growing crop on market bulges, at a season when the small farmer could not ordinarily deliver his crop. In order that the maximum amount of field work may be obtained, no "chores" arc required of the men other than the cleaning of their teams. These are fed, bedded and the barns cleaned by barn men. The results on this farm are therefore secured by painstaking care and thorough methods. The question Is often- asked: What does It cost to produce a bushel of corn? On this farm, the size of thirty- five ordinary farms, with a sixty-bushel crop the cost was 9 cents per bushel to the crib. For shelling, shipping and commissions add another cent, making 10 cents in all. It is evident, however, that had this farm been divided into thirty-five acre farms, with thirty-five cooks and thirty-five families, thirty- five door yards and waste lands, the expense of raising a bushel of corn would have been nearer 16 to 18 cents. In any event, the cost varies from year to year with the yield. The only fixed estimate which the farmer can give Is the cost per acre for producing the crop. This remains always practically the same and is, roughly speaking, $4.50 for small grain and $5 for corn, 1 The 1898 acreage of the corn farm was approximately as shown in the following brief table: Corn 3,700' Wheat 1,200 Oats 700 Roads and trees 400 Some interest naturally attaches to the man behind the gun—the man who, in this instance, has demonstrated that nothing pays better than farming. While the element of foreign birth and of foreign descent which has done so much to develop the northwest Is admirable, It will still be a gratification to learn that this successful farmer is not of that element, but that he is purely and distinctly American. He comes from the straightest New England stock and bears the name of one of Its most famous families. His ancentral kindred were among the molders of the republic and i-epresented their country at the courts of England, Russia and Franco; sat in presidential cabinets, in congress and more than once in the white house. The record almost spells .he name. Less than forty years of age, he never «:aw a day's work on a farm, until he jought one after he was twenty-one. His success rather indicates that there still are farmers born, and that the cap- tal and energy put into manufactur- ng and merchandising, if applied today to farming, will yield good returns.

An Englishman traveling in Maryland had occasion to investigate the running time of the trains that passed through the small place where he was stopping. Carefully searching a timetable he found apparently that there would be an express-train due at four o'clock that afternoon. The Englishman was on time with his grip, etc., and so was the express-train. The intending passenger watched It approach and thunder by the station at top speed. The traveler was annoyed, and, turning to a colored man who stood near, remarked: "That train didn't stop!" "No, sir,'" replied the colored citizen, cheerfully, "didn't ev'n hes'- tate." At a dinner party at which Spenker Reed and Embassador Choate were present, the latter spoke of his share in drawing tin the new constitution of New York. He said that was a noble document, and in no part was he so much Interested as that which prohibited the members of the New York assembly from accepting passes from railroads. In conclusion ho said: ''I am happy to say that never in my life illd I ride on a railroad pass." One of the members of the dinner party looked at Choate with hearty admiration, and said: "Well, I wish I could say that." Speaker Reed looked at the Speaker in his whimsical way for a moment, and then solemnly said: "Well, why don't you? Choate did."
