Vntlcty of Potatoes. Some time ago a farmer sold the Writer ten bushels of potatoes which Were contracted for before the potatoes were dug. They proved to be very small, but yet not so small that they could be refused. On investigation it was found that they were of a variety that is pretty well run out* The farmer said that all of his neigh* bora that were growing this variety complained that for several years they had not been able to get more than half crops. Now, while we do not believe ' that potatoes run out of necessity, yet most of them are so carelessly handled that they do run out after a time. It •Would therefore seem that every man should watch his variety and sec that It is not growing less productive. For Instance, if one variety will produce 200 bushels to the acre and another only 100 bushels, it Is evident that the grower could much better afford to pay a good price for new seed than to grow the old seed even If ho got It for nothing. The Michigan agricultural college tries a great many varieties and finds it advisable to discard hundreds of them, after testing them for a number of years. Their rule Is to discard all potatoes that will flot yield 100 bushels to the aero under fair conditions. Some of these potatoes discarded are presumably not old varieties, but new ones that do not do well on that particular soil. Some of them might be entirely suitable to other soils and conditions. Readers of the Farmers' Review will remember the controversy that took place a few years ago In these columns over the Freeman potato. Some farmers reported magnificent yields with it and others reported that it was with them a complete failure. The facts were that in some localities the soil and conditions favored it while in others tho soil and Conditions were against it. There is 'no general purpose potato any more than there is a general purpose cow 'or hen or horse. There are some varieties that are adapted to light sandy soils and others that do well on a clay soil. The farmer that tries to grow a potato on. the wrong soUjim§{;- expect financial loss. Ga^g-frf selecting varietie%.p < ayp,, l . r Jt'is a mistake to x66^arried away by a potato fad, as much as it is a mistake to be carried away by any other kind of a fad. What we call a potato fad is for a community to get the idea that there is only one kind of potato they must grow and hang to it through thick and thin, even though their soil may be very diversely formed and constructed. Also a man that has newly drained his farm may find that tho potato he grew on undrained land may not prove the best on land so constructed that the moisture and air pass more readily through it. Every farm must to a certain extent be an experiment station. A farmer must try a number of varieties before he can know Which ono will do the best for him. Improving; Sooil. The Journal sees no reason why 'seeds cannot be improved by careful selection and cultivation just as horses and cattle can be improved by Judiciously selecting and mating the parent animals and properly caring for their offspring, says Texas Stock and Farm Journal. The Kansas Experiment Station is continuing an experiment on the station farm for the improvement of corn and have shown that the yield can be very much increased by breeding and selecting tho seed. The men engaged in tho test hope, also, to improve tho feeding value of corn by making it more nitrogenous. They' find that some grains have more than the average percentage of protein, and hope by tho selection of these to produce a grain that will have more than the average fleah producing quality. Of course the or- 'dlnary farmer has not tho trained skill nor the equipment to successfully or scientifically conduct experiments on such lines, but it seems to have passed beyond question that yield nnd quality can be Increased very much simply by planting the very best seed and giving the seed crop just the kind and amount of cultivation that is required. Such methods might profitably be applied to other than com crppa. They would give the same advantage in the garden aa in the field. As to some plants climate might have euch effect as to cause degeneracy in sp}te of the best efforta, making it ad' Visable to buy each year seed that have grown under all conditions favor- ahle to them, but tho Journal thinks there are few products of either field or garden of which this is true. Canto of Winter Killing. gome thirty years ago I wrote an article on "Orcharding in Wisconsin." it was given as my opinion in that article that tho very extreme and long- CORtlnued cold of some of our winters was the principal cau^e of injury, and now after the lapse of more than a, quarter of » century, carefully noting the effect of the extremes we have passed, I am still of that opinion, Bliya A, 0. Tuttje In "Wisconsin Hor- tjeuljwiat," Every cold winter when we have had many days In succession J}£ v«ry chrome cold, and when on of ttMSfte 4&ys the mercury did not ftbpve twenty be}ow zero at mid: , I b9Y§ always fowd l^ury BOOR tQ lollQW. j» every caja the e$trwe cold winters have beep tbpae molt 4»* rtructjhre.' If w«f place a foliage -plaut In th? open air wltb tu e .8998 WUe4aud we not hesitate to say it froze to death. The Baldwin, Greening or Spitzenberg apple kills In a dry atmosphere With about the Same degree of cold that destroys the peach. That our trees freeze to death I have not the least doubt, but why one kills and another does not, Is something I don't Understand and probably never shall. Prof. BUdd claims that trees freeze to death by the expansion of the sap cells caused by severe 'freezing. This Is an old theory and one I could never accept. That portion of the tree containing the sap vessels Is as easily frozen as a potato, and I can see no reason why the sap should not be as thoroughly frozen and expanded with the thermometer at zero as at thirty or forty below, and yet with the mercury at zero we suffer no Injury. It Is not necessary for us to be able to explain why one variety kills and another does not; the fact Is all .that Is necessary for us to know until we are able to go back In creation to the great first cause and explain the phenomena of Its existence. We shall find many mysteries in nature we cannot solve. Science can only reveal to us a few faint glimmerings of that effulgent light that shines beyond the reach of human vision. Only in another state of existence, if ever, shall wo be able to comprehend tho wonderful mysteries that, nature withholds from us here. Let us accept the facts as they present themselves rather than adopt a theory and spend all our energies to make facts conform to it. I made a thorough examination of my shrubs and vines the first day they were thawed after the severe cold; the injury was aa apparent then as it was a month afterwards. The evidence was as conclusive to mo that they had frozen to death as it would have been had I found a person who had perished in a Dakota blizzard. I would as BOOU have entertained the idea that the person died of sunstroke or fever as that thawing killed the trees. Vines, shrubs and small fruits can bo protected, but our ochard fruits should be sufficiently hardy to withstand any amount of cold wo may be liable to have. A silo is a convenience which every dairy farmer should bave, says the Canadian Commissioner of Agriculture and Dairying. It need not be an expensive structure. It requires to be strong enough to hold corn fodder when cut into lengths of from one-Jin]' to one inch. It should ^.tsAfYy close, so as to exclude^s-giV after the eu- silagojiajusetcfed. The main features "aTe~~Btrength to resist the outward pressure of Its contents, exclusion of air by the construction of 1 tho sides, and a fair depth of holding capacity, in order to permit the ensilage to settle Into a compact mass. Sufficient strength of sides can be obtained in most silos by the use of 2x10 inch or 2x12 inch studs, placed from 18 inches to 2 feet apart. A clay or earthen floor is most economical, and as good as any'that can be put in. The inside of the walls of the silo may be finished by a single lining of lumber, nailed to the studs horizontally. The lumber should bo tongued and grooved, and dressed on tho inside. If each alternate board be allowed to extend at the corners, so as to make a lock- joint, that will give additional strength to the structure. The corners of the silo on the inside should be filled by tho use of a board or plank 10 Inches wide, sot on end. The triangular spaca behind it should be filled with sand or sawdust. I consider that studs 2x10 inch or 2x12 inch, with one ply of sound tongued and grooved lumber, nailed horizontally on the inside, arc sufficient for an efficient preservation of the ensilage. Additions to that method of construction may bo advantageous in a few caserj for convenience. To build one with the least outlay of cash, tho farmer who has some standing timber may get out timbers hewn on one side. These may be put in a mow in tho barn, and lined on the inside with one thickness of lumber, tongued and grooved, and nailed on horizontally. This big bin, or silo, should be constructed with tho corners interlocked by every second board passing through and being nailed on the corner post. That effectually prevents the spreading of the silo at the corners. If a portion of tho ensilage around the sides becomes frozen, that is more an inconvenience than a loss. It should be mixed with tho warm ensilage, from the middle of the silo, before it is offered or fed to the cattle. Chill Room.— In building any room for maintaining a uniformly low temperature, thero are certainly indispensable requirements. The room must bo made air-tight, and the floor, walls and ceiling insulated so that out- eide temperature will affect that within as little as possible. In planning for a chill-room, every one must consider his requirements as to size of room, kind of fruit to bo held, his available location, and adapt his plant to these environments. It will bo apparent that, when the temperature has been reduced to a minimum, tho room should be opened only when absolutely necessary, and that fruit to be put in should be partially cooled outside and not taken directly from the field in a clear, hot day, and placed in the chill-room. It is better to leave it over night in a room that can be opened and cooled by the night air, and take it from there to the chill-room early the next morning.— Ex. ^ _ ^ Clover In the Dairy Ration.— One chief reason for going Into the dairy business is to make a market on the farm for our clover hay- With clover we can compound a .dairy ration easily with, almpst anything else. With it yp.ii pan fee.4 corn, pjp oats and you »$ed not buy ijjlU teed.~S, Q. SPYorWy, that aw reared i n ha,ye Spring Mnnttrtbff. One of the old time practices In farming is the fall applications of manures, being confined almost wholly to winter wheat. This Is still a good plan so far as It goes, though not economical, but spring applications of coarse manures are coming rapidly In favor, especially for clean cultivation crops. Coarse manures with clean cultivation, frequent tillage, rapidly becomes available as plant food. It no longer pays to use manures merely to enrich the soil, but it does pay to use them to grow Immediate crops. Manure which stays in the soil two or three years before becoming fully available as plant food, is worth mifch less than the same amount In a quickly available form. Spring ma- nuring has Its disadvantages, notwithstanding. In all farm yard manures the ammonia is first to become available, and unless potash and phosphates have been used freely previously, there is much rbk that he ready supply of ammonia will encourage a rank growth of leaf at the ex- ( pense of the stalk and grain. Another point is that with many crops a rank growth of foliage at tho expense of other parts of the plant is not practicable; in this case the free ammonia is simply lost, it goes to waste Farmers shotild constantly bear in mind that all manures, or fertilizers, which are tho same thing, are merely just so much ammonia, potash and phosphates; not any one nor any two, but all three taken together. With clean cultivation crops such as corn, potatoes, etc., where farm yard manure is used, potash and phosphates should always be applied at the same time, or even earlier In tlu spring. They will not waste except on very rolling ground where any form of manure would wash away. From 100 to 200 pounds of muriate of potash and from 200 to 400 pounds of acid phosphate should bo used per aero, broad- casted or used In the drill as may suit individual preference. The object la to have the mineral fertilizer there ready for the ammonia as fast as tho latter becomes available as plant food. Much time and trouble ia given to securing catchca of clovers or other legumes, merely for the nitrogen fertilizer stored up by such plants. A somewhat wiser plan is to take good care of the ammonia we alrer-dy have on hand. To supply a soil _\?}.tb-G3I-" J mouia without fj.t. .tl!8" same tlmo ensuring. Ul3"potash and phosphates to "go with it, is to invite the loss of tho ammonia. It is wiser to be on the safe side, especially as there is very little danger of loss ^through drainage.—R. Garwood. Km It Prbspocts In MIolilgnn. The official state report from Michigan concerning fruit prospects, indicates a condition very discouraging to peach growers. Orchards within ien or fifteen milos of lakes Eric or Michigan, that were well situated on high, dry land, show less damage than those In the interior, but even in these favored localities, from 50 to 75 per cent of the buds have been destroyed, and many young trees killed outright. Older orchards of hardy varieties will survive, but the crops produced this year will necessarily be small. In tho northern and central portions of the stato, orchardlsts report that 25 to 75 per cent of all the peach trees are dead. Pear, plum and sweet cherry trees have fared almost as badly. Sour cherry and apple trees, and grape vines of hardy varieties, appear to be all right, and so do strawberries, which have been protected by a good blanket of snow. Raspberries and blackberries are much injured. The loss of potatoes in pits and cellars by freezing, is very groat, ranging from 25 to 75 per cent. The Seed Flat.—An excellent box in which tho seeds for early flowers can be Hciwii is about eighteen Inches long, fifteen inches wide and three and one- half inches deep. This box can be placed in tho window beside the cutting box. A good soil for the seed box is made of three-fourths soddy loam and one-fourth eand; this mixture gives a soil that drains well and doeii not run together after it has been watered a few times. In this box can bo sown Pansy, Verbena, Petunia, Snap Dragon, Sweet Alyssum, Salvia Splendena, or seeds of any other similar plants that will stand transplanting and arc desired for early blooming. Enough plants can be grown in a. box of this size to supply a good- sized flower garden.—W. II. Moore. Varying Types of Feeders—Practical and experienced feeders, who breed and purchase steers for fattening, observe striking differences in the aptitude of animals of varying types and make-up to lay on flesh readily and in such form and quality as to command the highest price on the market. It requires a well-trained eye to detect in all cases the possible variation of results in the store or stock steer; but there are some distinctions that are easily detected. There are certain types of cattle, for instance, that never feed profitably under any conditions, and it is quite as important to discriminate against these in the feed lot as to be able to recognize the excellence in other types. —Bureau of Animal Industry Report. Waste,—One of the important things about good farming that most of us have to learn is to avoid waste. Wo pay taxes on land that we do not farm; we only half cultivate our fields and BO waste both land and labor; we leave a large percentage of the crop in the field; we waste time and capital in raising Inferior animals; we waste en' ergy in trying to dp more than one man can dp right; we waste money fn buying what wo should raise ourselves; we waste opportunities to improve our conijUJon by staying away frqm. }nsti» tutes. and fairs a,nd'by neglecting to read papers; we waste—in a thousand ways, and then we are ready to say '•farming don't pay."
