PEttt MOfflMBj AL&QNA 1QWA, 19, 1899. IAID MATTERS dp INTEREST to AGRICULTURISTS. 6ometr p -to-Date feint* About Cul- ttvatlon of! th« Soli and tlcldi Thereof—Horticulture, Vltlcnltar* and Injury to Missouri orchard*. The secretary of the Missouri State Horticultural Society sends out the following: I realize that the general impression of our people and of our newspapers, is that the reports made about the loss of the fruit crop and injury to the trees are far overdrawn, but such is not usually the case. On the con- l trary they are usually under-estimated, |ftnd oftentimes the Injury is much more Terlous than reported, instead of less. The great and widespread damage by he freeze of February is not by any leans over-estimated, as the reports rom five hundred inquiries fully tes- •Ify, There never has been such seri- |ous results from any cold winter as jthis one, during the history of fruit 'growing in Missouri, and now the question comes to every one of us— more Important even than the fruit crop—"What to do with the trees?" The intensity of the cold does not fieem to have been most severe in the northern part of the state, for in many instances the reports show a lower degree in the southern part. When we consider that 25 degrees to 30 degrees below, means a freezing of the life out of many of our trees and causing the bark and even the bodies to burst, we may be sure of serious damage, This has been the case in this instance. The peach buds are very nearly all killed, and we will likely have very few, If any, peaches in the state. Worse than this, the trees are badly injured. The freeze has discolored the wood and these trees should be cut back severely If old trees, cut back to stubs about six or eight feet high. If young trees, cut so as to leave stubs of branches about six or eight inches long, in other words, de-horn the trees. If the trees have bursted slightly then cut off the bursted bark and cover with grafting wax. If the bark has loosened all around the tree, or so far around that it cannot recover, then cut the tree off at the ground and let a sprout grow and make a new tree. The pear buds are also badly injured and we can expect only a partial crop of pears at best. Many of the pear trees are damaged and they should be cut back not Quite so severely as the peach. The plum buds—Japan variety—are about all killed, and the trees injured in some instances as badly as the peach. Treat them the same as the peach. Other plums, of the Wild Goose type, are all right for a crop of plums. The cherry buds of the Morello variety like the Ey. Richmond, aro in good condition for a crop of fruit, and the trees are very slightly injured. Some of the Duke varieties are injured and nearly all the Heart varieties. The apple buds—only the tender varieties are killed, but most of the hardy varieties are still in good shape for a. crop of apples. In many localities, however, the trees themselves are badly damaged, caused by the rupture of the bark, and sometimes the tree Itself. If this bursting of the bark is. such that the bark is loose all around the tree, then the tree had better be cut down to the ground, or to the snow line, and a sprout trained for a new tree. If it be only slightly loosened—an inch or so wide—then cut off the loose bark, cover the part with grafting wax. and then cut back the top of the tree, though not quite so severely as the peach. If the wood is simply discolored, then a severe top pruning will be sufficient and they will very likely recover. It is astonishing how quickly some of these trees will recover if they are cut back enough so that the sap can reach the branches before it becomes sour, as it must do, if it has to go to the. tips of the limbs when cut off. 1 The strawberry crop is not materially damaged because they are usually well mulched. The raspberry crop will be short fully one-half. The canes have been badly killed in many localities, and where such is the case they had better all be cut off close to the ground and burned up. The blackberry crop will be short only about one-fourth among our hardy varieties. When they are killed treat the same as the raspberry. The grape crop will still be good, only excepting some of the tender varieties. If there ever was a time when the fruit grower could ^•ve a general cleaning up in nearly all parts of the orchard and garden, then this year is the time. When you cut off this wood burn it up; by thus doing you will destroy many .insects, their eggs and much of the destructive fungi which do us so much damage. We may be partially free from their destructive ravages for a few years if we make this cleaning up a general and thorough one. In conclusion, while we cannot expect a great crop of fruit this year, yet we should get good prices for everything we have to sell. The great extent of country where the damage has been severe gives us promise of a very short crop, and it will surely pay us to take good care of all we may have. Never was there a winter when so large a portion of our country was BO badly damaged by one single storm. It extended from the Atlantic to the Rockies and 'from the Gulf to the northern limit of fruit growing. The fruit is not.killed in all this district but is badly injured, and no portion has entirely escaped; hence we may Jook for a scarcity, JU A. Goodman, Secretary, Cultivation of 86J» Beans. W. H. Stoddard delivered an address before the farmers of Macoupin county, Illinois, on the Soy or Soja Beans. On their cultivation he said: If you want an early pig or sheep feed amd want the best results, plant the Early Dwarf variety and let the stock hatvest them themselves, or cut and feed as needed. Plant about a peck per acre in drills with a drill corn planter, In,rows 20 to 30 Inches apart and one or two seeds eight to twelve Inches apart in the row. £lant very shallow—a half inch Is better than deeper. Have the seed bed loose and mellow. If possible select clean ground, free from quick, rank-growing »veed seeds. To harvest the Early Dwarf is quite a task, as the seed pods set so low on the stalks and they are so tough and hard when ripe it is impossible to cut them with a machine. It has to be done by hand with corn- knives or hatchets. Cut as soon as the pods turn yellow. Catch the tops with one hand, cut and throw into small piles to cure. Dry thoroughly and then thresh or store in barn; or better, in open shed till ready to thresh or feed. If many are grown they are best threshed with a common grain separator, removing the concave and putting m a board in its place. Don't use a wind-stacker machine if you can get any other, as they have to run too fast to do good work. If ripe, don't cut with a scythe; it shatters the beans and does not cut low enough. Don't use a hoe; the handle strikes the vines, shatters the seeds and the blade digs up clods of dirt to get mixed with the seeds. The Medium Early is the standard variety and can be grown and harvested the same way, only they] should be planted ten to sixteen inches apart In the row. Cover shallow. The farther .apart-they are planted the better the yield of seed will be. If a hay crop is wanted, plant from a half to one bushel per acre, either with a grain drill or broadcast. If planted in rows, cultivate with a weeder or cultivator. We use a one-horso garden cultivator ( after the plants are eight or ten inches^ high. To cultivate when smaller, use a regular patent weeder, or make one by putting your corn-cultivator wheels, or old hay-rake wheels cut down, or low buggy wheels on your sulky hay- .-ake, so that the points of the rake teeth will point down 01 back and not forward and hook out the plants. Bolt Jx2 inch strips of board across about the middle of the teeth to clamp them steady. Lock the teeth down and gc ahead. It does flue work if the plants are not too small and tender or so tall as to wrap about the teeth. It will work all right in a broadcast or grain-drill sowed crop as well as if in rows. The horse will destroy more plants than the .weeder. For hay, cut at any time after they bloom. For horses, cut early. For sheep and cattle cut later, up till the leaves begin to shed and pods ripen. For seed, cut just as the first pods turn yellow or light brown, if let too long to ripen, the leaves will drop off, injuring the value of the hay and straw, also the stalks will get too hard and tough to cut with a mower or reaper. An old-fashioned self-rake or dropper is best. Put in small piles of about a forkful to cure and dry. They are best threshed from the field to save extra handling, shattering of seeds and danger of heating, if stored in bulk if not perfectly dry. Eradicating; Ox-Eye Daisies. I have had a few years' experience with the ox-eye daisy which has been valuable. I have had the misfortune to have a good deal of experience with it, and the first that deserves recording is that this pernicious pest is mostly due to impure grass and clover seed at the start, and the farm is then completely stocked through the manure made from the infected hay, writes H. Stewart to Country Gentleman. How to get rid of these daisies in the cheapest manner was the question. I determined to let them grow and try the natural process of rotation of crops, and see if the daisies would not in time wear themselves out. I used the field for pasture for cows and sheep, and let the seeds ripen. For three years the fields were snow white for two months, and the daisies thrived. Gradually they seemed weak. The plants, previously strong and vigorous, became weak and sickly, and the past season the daisies have scarcely bloomed at all. Most of them grew a few inches high only; and it now appears as if they have played out. The natural law of rotation of growth seems to have vindicated Itself, and the next crop, which will be corn thoroughly-.well cultivated by hand, as well as by machine, will, I think, finish the daisies. Early cutting of the hay with the daisies before the seeds are ripe will go far to stop their growth. The daisies do not seem to injure the hay for feeding. All the animals eat it without objection, and as the weed has a considerable amount of nutriment in it, it adds so much to the feeding value of the hay. But there is no doubt if corn or potatoes are grown on infested land, and due attention is given to the culture, this weed may be got rid of, if by any should take possession of the land. It is a costly thing to give the land up to It for several years; but when the land may serve as pasture this method may be worth adopting. To prevent it, be sure to get pure seed, if double price is to be paid for it. Packing Butter.—It is well, if one can, to have one churning large enough to fill a crock or tub, and pack the butter at ouce upon working it, but if this is not possible, do not pack at all until enough butter la at hand to fill whatever Is to be packed; that is for shipping butter. It is well, always to pack the butter and cover it as nearly air tight as possible, but if packing ia a tub to ship, do »ot put it into the shipping tub until enough is at hand to'SU it.—Ex. tME WOMEN SAY there it No Remedy the Eqnal 6f ft* rn-ntt In All their PecnlUr lilt.

HIS OLD YELLOW ALMANAC, I left th« farm when mother died, and changed my place ot.dwellln' To daughter Susie's stylish house, j-tght In the city street, And there was them, before I came, that sort of scared me tellln' How I would flhd the town-folks' Ways so difficult to meet.

I like the racket and the noise, and never tire ot shows; And there's no end of comfort In the mansion of my daughter. Ami everything Is right at hand, and money freely flows; Aria hlrctl help is all about, just Hstentn' for my call, But I miss the yellow almanac from off my kitchen wall. The house la full of calendars from attlo to the cellar; They're palnlecl In all colors, and are fancy-like to see. But just In this particular I'm not a modern feller, And the yellow-covered almanac Is good enough for me; I'm used to It, 3 ve seen H round from boyhood to old age, And I rather like the joktn' at the bottom of each page. I like the way the "S" stood out to show the week's beglnnln' (In these new-fangled calendars the clays seemed sort of mixed), And the man upon tho cover, though he was n't exactly wlnnln' V/Hh lungs nn«l liver all exposed, still showing how we are llxed; And the letters, credentials that was writ to Mr. Ayer, I'v» often, on a rainy dny, found readln very fair.

They toted out great calendars In every sort of style: I looked at 'em In cold dlsduln, and answered 'em In pity: "I'd rather have my almanac than all that costly pile."

The recent purchase of 28,000 tons of 85-pound steel rails by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad brings the total amount of rail bought since March 1, 189G, up to 115,300 tons, enough to relay 870 miles of track. Of the new rail ordered eight thousand tons is to be laid on the lines west of the Ohio river, and twenty thousand tons is to be used as follows: Forty-four miles on the Philadelphia division, 11 miles on the Second division, 13 miles on the Third division, 30 miles on the Fourth division, 21 miles on the Fifth division, 10 miles on the Connellsville division and 21 miles on the Plttsburg division.

The opinion of five delegates froim Minnesota and Wisconsin, ptfbllshed by the Edmonton Bulletin over their names Is very . complimentary to Northern Alberta. The report says: "We must say with all sincerity that driving all over the country for si* days, we have not found one settler who was not more than pleased with the country and Its productions, and will hot return to the land he left. We have seen people here from all parts of the states atid all doing well. We met a Dakota farmer by the name of McLean, who has Informed us that he has raised more grain here in three years than he did in thirteen where he came from, on half as much ground. We have seen a number of others, both men and women, and all speak in the same strain about Alberta. They all look well and contented; even the children are happy. In our drive over the country, in passing the countless school houses we could only see happiness In -the faces of the little ones. We noticed them all well dressed equal , ,??* belter than the same class of children in the state of Minnesota. The wheat that is raised here Is just beautiful, the kernel full and plump and may well be termed golden grain, yielding 30 to 55 bushels to the acre. This statement is not from oiin farmer but from hundreds who tell the same tale. Oats yield from 70 to 100 bushels to the acre, barley from 40 to 60 bushels and potatoes from 300 to 400 bushels to the acre. We have taken particular notice of the climate in regard to the difference between this country and our j own. When we left Ada, Minnesota, we were In the midst of a veal Dakota blizzard. When we ar- t'lve.d at Edmonton we found the pso- ple on the streets still wearing summer clothing, no mittens on their hands and far less use for them. The country is simply more than we ever dreamed of. The printed matter sent out by the government does not half tell of the grand country in Alberta, open for millions of people to make beautiful homes for themselves. Too much can not be said In praise. It Is all and more than the greatest eulogist ever thought of giving to the public. We saw cattle and horses in herds grazing on the prairie like in summer time all sleek and fat. We were Informed by several farmers that most of the stock run out all winter. We also found the market extra good here for beef and pork. Hogs fetch 4Mj cents live weight. A three-year- old steer will bring from $40 to $45 right from the prairie. Coal and wood are here In abundance. Coal is sold in the town of Edmonton for $2 per ton and farmers can secure coal at the mines themselves for 75 cents per load. Before closing we say to you one and all, come to Alberta, where there aro homes for millions and a promise for something to lay by for an old age. We are well satisfied with this country and as evidence have each bought a half section of C. P. R. land in township 35, range 21 west of the 4th Initial meridian, and will 'return next spring to reside. Hoping this may be of some benefit to the overburdened farmers of the United States."
