It is impoitaiit not only that a sugar beet should bo of a proper size and shape, but also that it bo grown in such a inauucr as to secure tbe protection of tho f-oil for all of its parts except tho neck and foliage. The proper position for a beet to occupy in the soil at tbe oriel cl growth is shown in tbe accompany- ii]j; illustration. This position cau only l e .-(X'urcrt for the beet by growing it in a toil sufficiently pervious to permit of the penetration of the taproot to a great depth. It is.for this reason that subsoil ing in t 1 o preparation of a lield for the grow th dt .sugar beets is of such great importance. If tho beet in its growth, should CORRECT POSITION' OF MATURE BEET. meet a practically impervious subsoil at the depth of eight or ten inches, the taproo'c will be deflected from its natural course, lateral roots will be developed, tho beet will become disfigured and clis- torte'd in sbapo, and the upper portion of it will be pushed out of tho ground. Experience has shown that tho content of sugar in those portions of a beet ·which are pushed above the soil is very greatly diminished. Professor Wiley, in a farmers' bulletin issued by tho agricultural department, says on tho subject of piepariug the laud for beets: Beets should follow wheat or other cereal crop, because this crop, being harvested early, leaves the ground ready for lato autumn plowing, a prerequisite to successful beetcultuie. The laud should be plowed to a. depth of at least nine inches. The plow in each furrow should be followed by a subsoil- er ^vhich will loosen the soil to the depth of six or seven inches more. Each field should have tho soil prepared by thoroughly loosening it to tho depth of from 15 to 18 inches. The laud, being exposed through "the winter, becomes quite mellowed, and iu the spring can bo prepared for planting by a simple treatment of the surface. This is done after plowing by a thorough snr- faco cultivation until the surface of the soil is reduced to perfect tilth. It is desirable that, each portion of the field, to be planted should bo tlior ifately before the Thus all weeds and grasses which havo started to grow are killed, and the beets have an even chance ·with the weeds for growth. The Hard? Fulca»ter Wheat. · The Fulcaster, now being spoken of ·with universal commendation, is a hardy and prolific wheat. Here is what the Denver Field and Farm frays about it: The Fulcaster is a hybrid of two of our most celebrated, time tested aud hardy Wheats, Fultz and Lancaster, as it has tho straw, chaff and peculiar eight row head, of the Fultz, with the hardiness, long berry and beards of the Lancaster, really possessing all tho good qualities of both. This wheat has a stiff white straw that will stand up ·well tinder almost any circumstances, aud this makes it valuable when grown by irrigation. It has a white bearded chaff that clings to the grain, not shattering easily; heads long and massive, filled.-with the large, plump, flinty, long berry grains. It ripens from three to six days earlier than niobt other varieties, and the yield is said to be fully equal to the Fultz. Ithassuperior milling qualities. American Mutton. . Formerly the Englishman's criticism on American mutton was that it wasn't fit to eat; it tasted too strongly of wool. Perhaps this criticism was merited, for the American shepherd had been breeding for wool and not for mutton. But with tho depression in wool came a change, and those breeders who were not frightened out of tho business en tirely paid more attention to mutton breeds, so that a great improvement in this direction has been manifest. It is to be hoped that the improved outlook for wool will not cause the neglect of the mutton breeds, for there will always be a good home demand for good mutton, while there is likely at almost any time to be a period "of depression in the wool market. Don't give up the mutton sheep is advice given by Bural JfewY Killing Pork Early. After severe cold weather begins, though the appetite of fattening hogs improves, they need so much of the carbon in their food to furnish heat that a much smaller part of it can go to mako fat. There is very rarely any profit in keeping fattening hogs after the first of the new year. During the holidays there is a. glut of fresh meats in market, so that pork does not sell so well as it does either earlier or later. But it is often lato in spring before pork makes ranch advauco over what it was early. This advance the farmer can get as well by putting his pork in the barrel instead of keeping it on the hoof, eating gi-aiu without enough gain iu weight to pa for it.--American Cultivator. Here and There. A Massachusetts contributor to The New England Homestead claims that there is at least $2.50 per ton difference between home grown and baled hay. Striking figures showing tho decline of farming in Connecticut are given by a Litchfield county statistician. An advancing cranberry market is apparent, particularly in the east. The outlook for the sheep industry is quite inviting at present, and tho shepherd feels ericouraged. Mr. Charles Parry expressed the opinion at a farmers' institute that when farmers realize the immense profits in chestnut culture they will be tumbling over each other to set out the groves. Can't capture Crimson Clover, eh? Why not try bribing him? He loves potash. Set Sir Muriate after him, advises Enral New Yorker. SHEEP IN NEW ENGLAND. A Vermont Farmer Tells About the Profltg of This Industry. A Massachusetts correspondent writes as follows to The New England Homestead: "Kindly inform mo whether a ; mau with a fair knowledge of bhcep | could mako a success of tho business hero ! iu New England by Iciihiug two or more | hill farms, stocking them with from 300 to 500 ewes and devoting all time and labor to them and such crops as it was practical to rniso for tho consumption of tho bheop, thus making tho sheep the only boiu'ue of income from tho farm." t To this query a Vermont farmer replied: "A niiuiwith a, fair knowledge of the sheep business could lease a farm in my ] locality that would carry 200 ewes for $12o cash yearly rental--a mountain form, I mean. Ho could do tho work on the farm with, say, $50 for help iu hay- iiig and in the oat harvest. Ho would not bo so likely to succeed with two farms. Tho question of personal supervision would enter into tho problem to his disadvantage with two farms unless they weio situated so as to be tho sumo as one farm. If ho should get one farm that would carry 400 or 500 ewes tho question of hired help would trouble him, and wo must assume that your mail is a poor man, with a family to bring up and riot going into tho business to demonstrate a proposition, but to get a living. So he should get a farm that will pasture 200 sheep and cut hay enough to winter them, say 45 tons. If tho fences are good--and ho must look out for that--he can do tho work himself, with tho exception of the $50, and raise two acres of rutabagas, five acres of oats and five acres of rape. This would keep a p-iirof horses, two cows and the sheep. "Tho 200 ewes should clip 1,400 pounds of wool, which would bring today §300. If ho does his duty by his sheep, ho should have 200 lambs to sell and leave 20 of his best ewe lamDs in the flock. If ho raises his five acres of rape and takes care of tho lambs, ho will get !-3 each for them tho 1st of November, which would amount to $1,000. Allowing for losses, which should not exceed 10 ewes, ho would havo 10 ewes to sell fat, at $5 each, for $50. Now we havo §1,360 income from tho bheep. His outgo would bo: Eeut, $125; wages, $50; tools and repairs on tools, $75; serds, $25; repairs on buildings to mako them comfortable for lambing firtt year, $7o; total, §:J30. "Now, without looking ahead to see where my figures would laud I havo hit upon an even $l,00*\vith which to pay ta:ics, interest and support the family. To this should bo added the income from the two cows and the poultry and pigs. "I speak with confidence iu tho above statement from the fact that I have a farm nine miles from homo that I carry on as a sheep farm pure and simple and know what it costs. I get much bettor puces for my sheep, however, than those above. I make my wethers yield mo about $13 each, dressed. For 14 years my average was about $15, but you asked what a man with a 'fair' kuowledgo of the business can do.'' Pennsylvania's Abandoned Farms. Last spring there were scores of abandoned farms, which had not been cultivated for several years, all over eastern Pennsylvania. In Berks county alone these farms numbered about 100. They ranged in size fiom 10 to 75 acres. The average was 40 acres. Today few of these properties are idle. They have been rented aud are now occupied. This is one of the most noteworthy evidences of an improvement among the agricultural classes. The demand for farm real estate has for tho last three months been steadily increasing. Both buyers and tenants are much more numerous than a year ago, and tho price of laud has increased at least 15 per cent. One cause of this increase is tho advance in the price of grain. Continued hard times in cities and boroughs havo caused some men with largo families to leave their town homes and settle dowu on small farms, where they expect to be able to live well \vithout the exertion that is required iu tho city or borough to support a family, and they can keep all their children at work and yet have them at home. It is predicted that by next spring the "abandoned farm" will be entirely a thing of the past iu this section of tho state, according to a communication from Beading, Pa., ill the New York Tribune. E:i«y Way to Cook Feed. It sometimes becomes uecessary to cook a mess of feed for the poultry or pigs iu tho -winter time, and to do so sometimes requires a fire when it is not convenient to build one. Following is a plan suggested in tho Iowa Homestead: Place au old keg or half barrel in · a box and pack around it with straw or chaff. Provide KEQ WITHIN A BOX. both barrel aud box with tight fitting lids. Then, having mixed tho feed with hot water, put it in tho inuer receptacle and place both lids iu position. The mess will cook iu the time elapsing from one feed to the next. It is surprising how loug tho water will remain hot, even in very cold weather. Wintering Bees. An Ohio correspondent .of Tho Farm Journal drops the following hints: Uso only good cellars for wintering bees. A good cellar is one that is dry and well ventilated. Such a cellar will keep bpes from freezing and be of great advantage to them. Each hive should have 30 pounds sealed stores, honey or sugar sirup. A draft should never htriko a hive in the cellar. Keep the cellar dark. The tbeiniorncter should be kept at 36 or 40 degrees if possible. Keep out of the cellar as much as you cau. Have a hole in tho floor to let the thermometer through for examination. Kegulate ventilators also from outside. Nous and Notcn. Poor bay is greatly in evidence with · comparative scarcity of choice to fau- ey- It is believed (hat good sound seed potatoes will be high priced by tho lime the planting season arrives. Iu northern Arizona tho wild horses have become a nuisance to stockmen. They not only eat the feed that should go to the cattle, but also chase the cattle off tbe range. Professor Bangs of Denmark is said to have separated the germ that causes certain forms of abortion in cattle. The MarEdeu company, which is exploiting corn pith in a large way, to be used iu industrial capacity, is repotted to be electing a number of new factories in the wett and southwest. The winter wheat situation is reported ns being more hopeful. The old way of cutting ice with a cros=cut saw ib huro, but rather slow, and makes hard work of it. Tbe ice plow is now iu general favor. An exchange says that iu the .south"vest turnips are planted in different parts ot the orchards and allowed to remain. Babbits and mice feed on this bait and do Ices damage to trees. YOU ARE INVITED.
