After drilling roll tho Hold, tho corn

in nico order for fall seeding.
If tho ground is mellow and rich,
nearly every stalk will grow a singlo
ear of corn. Tho time to cut tho fod

and tho lower lcavos commence to

reaper, mako small bundles, let tho
fodder wilt for a day or so, then sot

BREEDING PLACES FOR FLIES
Treatment Recommended by United
States Department of Agriculture
to Control Insects.
Manuro piles nro flies' favorlto
breeding places. If farmers will kcop
manuro and stnblo sprinkled with a
solution that will kill tho larva, flies
need not becomo numerous. Tho fol
lowing treatment, recommended in
United Stntos department of agricul
ture bulletin 118, will control flies and
will mako u noticcablo reduction in
tho number around a given place: DIs
solvo thrco-fourths of a pound ot
borax In two or thrco gallons of water.
Spray or sprinklo manure plies and
stables with tho solution about twice
This will kill tho larva which hatch
from eggs laid in manuro Tho danger
to human health from lllos Is sufficient
to mako tho wiso farmer take these
prccautlons,tbut If h9 looks for further
Justification It can bo found in tho pro
tection of Hvo stock. Human diseases
nro Bpread by flies and Hvo stock nro
worried by them. Tho danger to hu
man welfaro must bo concoded, but
tho loss to Hvo stock is not so onelly
seen. Animals which aro pestered by
files will lose flesh, and stnblo Hies rob
them of blood.
NEW PATENT ON CULTIVATOR
Extra Blades Travel In Advance, Cut
ting Sod, Weeds or Crust That
May Have Formed.
John S. Smith, n Raclno county
(Wisconsin) inventor, sends In a de
scription of his now patent cultivator
to tho Farming Business. This culti
vator has extra blades that travel In
advance and parallel to tho cultivator
blades for tho cutting of sod, roots,
weeds and any crust that may havo
formed, leaving tho cultivator blades
to do their work of stirring tho soli.
Ono lover manipulates both knlvos and
cultivators. This relievos draft, as It
is not necc3sarv to tear into tho soil
! so deeply to do both tho breaking of
tho sod and crust and tho cultivation
with ono sot of blades. Any ono of the
four beams used to carry tho knlvos
and cultivators can bo adjusted lndt
pendontly bo as to meet all kinds of
conditions of soil and vegetation.
MANURE LOSES BY LEACHING
When Rains Fall Much of Soluble
Plant Food Is. Carried Away
Moisture Holds Plant Food.
Farmers havo been so accustomed
to throw tho manuro from tho stnblo
In a pllo In tho barnyard, and leavo It
until it "is convenient to haul It to tho
Holds, that they do not glvo tho mat
ter of loss by washing and leaching
any consideration. Usually but llttlo
of tho value of tho solids of tho ma
nuro is lost in tho stable, but great
losses occur after it is thrown in a
pile. Tho manuro in tho stable, sat
urated by tho urine, contains mora
than SO per cent water.
The moisture In tho manuro holds In
solution tho greater part of tho plant
foods which the manure contains.
When tho rains fall upon tho manuro
tho leaching process carries away
much of tho soluble plnnt foods and it
is lost beyond recovery, for It Is either
carried away in the wator as it flowa
on tho surfaco to the streams, or sinks
Into tho ground whore, for all practi
cal purposes, It is wasted.
TESTING FERTILITY OF EGGS

Thoso who mako a specialty of sell

Ings should keep a careful test on tho
fertility of eggs produced, bo that

TO STORE PERISHABLE FOODS
Every Farm Should Be Provided With
Cellar, Storehouse and Refrig
erator for Crops.
Farmers loso much every year bo
causo their facilities for storing per

Every farm homo should havo a cel
lar, storehouse and refrigerator so tho
surplus foods may bo saved till such
tlmo as they may bo consumed.
Tho fact that producers havo Inado

BETTER ATTENT0N TO EGGS
Thiy Should Be Uniform in Color and

More attention should bo paid to

and regular in size as far ns posslblo.
If thoy had more attention paid to
them at our fairs; and were brought
to tho notlco of tho public and tho

that no cold Btorago stock need apply

A LAND PROBLEM AHEAD
(FROM THE PEORIA JOURNAL.)
Tho Nobraflka Stato Journal calls at
tention to tho fact that Undo Sam's
opening ot a 4,000-ncro trnct In the
North Platto irrigation district for sot
tlemont practically winds up tho "free
land distribution" ot tho nation. It
"Froo or cheap land has boon
tho American safety vnlvo. A
population straining for self-hot-torment
has had its own remedy
to go west and grow up with tho
country. With tho government
reduced to advertising an opening
ot forty-throo farms, tho safety

closed. Tho oxpanslvo onorgy for
merly oxertcd outward, must hord-
attor work Itself out intensively.

rapidly rising prlcoa ot land and
proportionately Increasing dissat

politics and tho intensity of our

proBsuro which hlthorto has had
tho wilderness to vent Itself upon.
'"Land hunger will soon becomo a
roaltty in this rapidly growing country
and tho constant prcssuro ot popula

publicist must dovoto his thought

In tho above will bo found ono of
tho reasons thnt tho Canadian Govern
ment is offering 1G0 acres ot laud froo
to tho actual settlor. There Is no
dearth of homosteadB of this slzo, and
tho land Is of tho highest quality, be
ing such as'producos ylolds ot from 30
to GO bushols of wheat per aero, whilo
oats run from fifty to over hundred
bushols por aero. It Is not only a mat

ada aro also to bo had othor lands at
pricoB ranging from $12 to $30 por
aero, tho dlfferenco In price being
largely a matter of location and dls
tnnco from railway. If ono takes Into
consideration tho scarcity of froo
grant lands in tho United States it is
not difficult to undorotnnd why thoro
has boon most material advancos in
tho prico of farm land3.
A few years ago, land that now scllsj
for two hundred dollars an acre in
Iowa, could havo boon bought for sov-onty-ilvo
dollars an aero or Iobs. Tho
Increased prlco is warruntod by tho
