Experiments in various methods
of feeding wheat have been conducted
for a series of years at the Ohio
experiment station, with the following
In the a verage of four years' experi
ment, wheat covered one inch or less
has produced at the rate of 34
bushels per acre; that covered two
inches has produced 33 bushels, and
that covered three inches 34 bushels.
Judging from a smaller number of
experiments it does not seem
advisable to sow deeper than three
In the average of six years, wheat
sown with the roller-press drill has
yielded about eight per cent more
than that sown with the ordinary
drill. More or less increase has
followed the roller-press in almost
every season, but a single trial has
given results unfavorable to the use
of the common roller after seeding.
Broadcast wheat has this year
yielded about the same as that drill
ed; but in the average of five years
the product from broadcast seed is
considerably smaller than from the
same quantity of seed drilled.
The results of seven years' experi
ments point clearly to the latter part
of September or first of October as
the .moat .favorable season for sowing
wheat on this farm.
A single experiment, made this
year, fails to show any advantage in

No larger crop has been produced
this year from mixed seed of two va
rieties sown separately.
The land upon which these experi
ments were made lies in the valley of
the Olentangy, one of the largest
branches of the Scioto. The soil is a
yellow loam, part first and part
second bottom. Ic is either naturally
underdrained with gravel or artific
ially drained witk tiles, and its av

Cheese and Butter Auctions.
The latest suggestion for helping dai
y farmers to dispose of their produce
on good terms and to bring it into
prominent competition with foreign
goods is to establish auction marts in
London and all the great manufac
turing towns, for the purpose of hold
ing weekly or daily sales of consign
ments of cheese and butter from our
dairy districts. It is contended that
in this way one of the advantages
which foreign dairy produce possesses
over our town, viz., that retailers al
ways know where to go for a supply
in any quantity, will to some extent
bo removed, and that if farmers only
support these places properly, and
are willing to make a little sacrifice at
the onset in the shape of insufficient
returns until the mart gets thorough
ly established, and retailers begin
regularly to resort to it, an opening
would be made for their goods which
would be of the greatest service to
them. Perhaps the advantage of
such auctions to butter makers would
be greater than in the case of cheese,
for the sale of which there are means
already available. At the same time,
if the thing answered for the sale of
butter, it could not fail to be of some
service to the cheesemaKer also, who
might try it with small lots first, as
the same buyers who went there for
butter would also, from the nature of
their business, be buyers of cheese.

Ammonia In Manure, a Mistaken
The prevalent idea that manure
contains much ammonia is, according
to Bell's Messenger, England, without
any foundation. Manure contains the
elements of which ammonia is formed
during decomposition, viz., nitrogen
and hyd ogen; uut as decomposition
is a very slow process, the ammonia
is only very slowly evolved. As it is
produced, it is irj the form of gas,
which is dissolved in the water exist
ing in the manure or it combines w ith
the abundant carbonic acid evolved
during the decomposition and forms
carbonate of ammonia. It is very
rare that ammonia can be detected es
caping from a manure heap. The
fetid odor of a manure pile is not
caused by ammonia, but by com
pounds of sulphur and carbon, the
same as those devolved by decaying
eggs and rotting cabbages. The am
monia of manure is very slowly disen
gaged, requiring a year or more before
it is all produced and evolved, and as
the soil absorbs it freely, there is
scarcely any danger of any loss of this
valuable part of the manure as it is
commonly used. The pungent odor of
a horse stable is caused by the escap
ing ammonia, and farmers loose more
of this element of manure in this way
in one warm night from an unclean
horse stable, than from their manure
heaps in a year. A pound of ammo
nia in manure is worth in England 17
cents, and a tun of manure produces
only 12 lbs of it.
How to Cure and Store Onions.
"Joseph," in Farm and Fireside,
has the following to say in regard to
curing onions and storing them for
the winter: Pull the onions just ns
soon as the majority of the tops
have fallen over and begin to waste
away. Leave on the ground in wind
rows until the tops have all dried
down, or if rain should threaten, take
to an airy loft or barn floor and
spread thinly, until fully cured.
Then sort, removing all remnants of
tops, etc., and try to sell them at an
early opportunity, which is mush
better than to attempt keeping them
over winter and running the risk of
losing part of the crop by sprouting,
rotting, or freezing. But if you are
bound to try wintering, you should
have a storage room that can
be kept at a temperature near
the 'rating point ny from
35 degrees to 45 degrees Fah
renheit. Put the hnibs in rather
open crattn, and keep well
aired and dry. Onions can also be
stored in pits, lik potatoes, only
guard against heating. It is better to
havo them freezing than to pet toa
warm. The question of "best" com
mercial fertilizer for onions can only
be answered in a relative manner.
When ground is very rich and abund
antly supplied with minerals (potash
and phosphorus,) nitrate of soda
alone may be the best and cheapest
fertilizer. In other cases ashes and
nitrate of soda may be the best; and
a good, high-grade, complete manure,
such as our leading fertilizer manu
facturers offer unler the name of
special potato or special onion,
or general vegetable manure, is
usually safe to apply even in
pretty large doses say a ton or
more per acre.
A Change for the Better.
Scrub farmer, feeding nothing but
hay and straw in a cold barn,
what have you to say to the facts
given by Mr. J. D. Smith, of Delaware,
county, N. Y., who, by changing his
system of farming, made the same
farm produce 8,304 pounds of butter,
when 2,250 pounds was the ex
tent when he lived as many are liv
ing yet in the "dark ages." As a
rule, too, the men who havecows that
produce for them 250 pounds of farm
butter per annum, don't get more
than a "York shilling" per pound for
it; when by the time ho learns how to
make a cow yield 250 or 300 pounds
per annum, has also learned to get
two "York shillings" per pound for it
largely because he makes the most
of it, when butter is scarce and high.
The butter income of the same farm
on the first basis is $281.25 on the
latter basis, 2,070.00. Borrowing
money even of the government, at 2
per cent to conduct the first kind of
farming, would bring n man to bank
ruptcy at the last. Hoard's Dairy
man. Milk In a Paper Bag.
A merry-hearted lad, who is often
sent on errands of household needs
and necessities, discovers a new
method of "bringing home groceries
and sich." "Here are two pounds o!
chops, good scant weight," said the
grocer to the young man of the family
who had brought in an order from his
wife; "now for your milk where' your
can?" The young, man of the family
protested that he hadn't read the or
der, and had not been equipped with
a can. "Never mind," said the grocer;
"here, hold on to it," and he dexter
ously slipped one paper bag inside of
another and filliped the corners into
place. The two quarts of milk were
poured into the inner bag. "The
grease in the milk iirevents its going
through the paper as water would,"
explained the grocer. "I had hard
work to get people to believe that they
could carry milk in a bog at first, and
let it go at my own risk. I've sent it.
so half a mile by slow transit; still, I'd
advise you not to stop to tell lony
stories on the way homo."
Milk as Human Food.
Milk is one of the most valuable and
economical articles for human food.
Estimated at twelve pounds per cow
daily, the United States produce the
bewildering amount of one hundred
and fifty billions of pounds of milk per
year. And as three pounds of milk
are equivalent to one pound of beef
in food elements, each inhabitant has
in milk one and a half beeves annual
ly. Whereas, in beef, each inhabitant
has only four-fifths of one beef per
capita. That, as a rule, our people
not engaged in severe manual labor
consume too much meat, there can be
no doubt. Milk, then, will here prove
an article of healthful nourishment, a
lack of which predisposes to the harm
ful use of spirits, in the form of beer,
wine, rum, or whisky. American
There are substances that in them
selves do not furnish the plant any
needed ingredient for growth, but
when applied to the soil assist ma
terially in augtimenting t he crop. One
of the best illustrations of this class of
fertilizers is common salt. Lime is
another substance rarely lacking in
the soil, but when added assists in set
ting free oilier substances that are
much needed by the growing plants,
that otherwise would not have be
come available for the crop. Water
is added in irrigation not as a fertil
izer but because it is the great solvent
in nature and the vehicle of transfer
of the various substances that go to
build up a plant when entering it from
the soil water.
A Few Hints.
When duck eggs are set under a hen
it is best to make the nest on the
Ducks grow faster than chickens,
are free from vermin and less liable to
Always have the nests so that the
hens can walk into them rather than
Feed for growth or for eggs and
not merely for subsistence if poultry is
to pay profit.
Buy your dairy stock of honorable
breeders and then hold them responsi
ble for their representations.
The heifer calf from a good cow is
worth keeping until it can be determ
ined whether or not the dam ha?
transmitted her good qualities.
If the men do the milking it is a
good thing to impress upon them the
fact that water is better than milk to
wash their hands in. Cleanliness is
next to godliness.
Many farmers would make their
dairies much more profitable if they
would give some hard study to the
nature of different grasses, witn a
view to improving their pastures.
During the first year the feeding of
the heifer should bo such as would
tend toward development of frame
rather than to the laying on of flesh.
Grass and roots and bulky forage
will be of more value than grain or
Other rich concentrated foods.

Walter's Bravery Catching Terra
pinHandling a Gun A Mir
ror Joke Yawls and
When they moved into the country,
Lill's mother said: "It will be perfect
ly safe for Lill to run about without
Annie here. Walter is so manly, lie
can take good care of hislittla sister."
Then Walter, who was nine, drew
himself up to his full height, and said,
condescendingly, to four-year-old Lill,
"Now, Lill you are to mind every
thing I say."
"Oh ess, Wallie," answered Lill,
Behind the barn a little brook ran,
and across it was a small bridue, from
which Walter was fond of fishing, al
though he never caught anything. Lill
liked to fish too. Cowslip, the cow,
crossed the bridge morning and night
to spend the day in the next field.
Here was also kept a small llock of
sheep, in which Mr. Mason took great
pride. In the brook the geese paddled,
led by a dignified old gander, and fol
lowed by fourteen pretty yellow gos
lings. While the children fished, if Cowslip
came too near, Lill would tremble
and cling to Walter. And Walter
would say, proudly:
'Don't be afraid. Lill. Wild
animals can't hurt you while you
are with me."
And dear little Lill would reply,
"Oh ess, Wallie."
One morning the children had fished
two hours. There was a fish in that
brook. Walter had seen one. But he
never could catch the cunning swim
mer. It began to grow dark. The
trees rustled. Little puffs of wind
blew off Walter's hat and tossed Lill's
"I believe it's going to rain, Lill.
Let's go home.
Lill was willing. Cowslip saw the
clouds too. Perhaps she thought
night was coming. S'.ie left her favor
ite patch of pink clover and walked
slowly toward the bridge.
"I'm 'fraid, Wallie," said Lill.
"Now, Lill, I've got to got these
lines up. Don't be silly! Ain't I
Cowslip cama nearer, and looked
steadily at the children; The sheep
started across tho meadow too.
They always followed Cowslip. The
geese waddled up tho bank .with loud
squawks. Walter gave Lill aBwitch,
and got ono lor himself. "We'll wave
these and keep off the foe." he said.
Lill stood at the end of the bridge,
and waved her branch bravely. But
when Cowslip looked at Walter with
her big round eyes ho suddenly sat
down by Lil's side and let Lill do the
waving. Cowslip took no notice. She
walked over the bridge, quietly
switching her tail.
Then Walter stood up firmly and
shook his switch after her. "Go home,
you foolish creature, vou!" he shout
ed. Some more of the enemy advanced.
The old ram seeing some one in the
way who was not much taller than
himself promptly knocked Walter
down and jumped over him. The
sheep followed, as sheep will, and one
after the other jumped over the
screaming boy. Walter picked himself
up after .t hey had gone by, and found
he was morefrightened than hurt. Lit
tlo Lill looked on in astonishment,
branch in hand.
"How dared they do it? Walter ex
claimed, indignantly. I will serve
them well for this!"
He shook his branch fiercely at the
sheep who were already running
around the corner of the barn.
"Wallie! See! see!" called Lill, excit
edly. Walter turned about. No; he tried
to turn, but tho old gander was too
quick for him. The old gander object
ed to such a noisy obstacleinhis path.
He caught Walter by the back of his
jacket, threw him on the ground, and
standing over him, beat him savagely
with his wings.
Poor Walter! Thegandcr was worse
than the cow, and the sheep too. Lill
thought she ought, to interfere, and
running after the Hock of geese, drove
them down the bank with her switch.
"Shoo! shoo! shoo-oo!"
The old gander, seeing the geese go
down the hill, jumped and Hew as fast
as he could after them.
Poor Walter! Dirty, bruised, and
sobbing, he rose from the ground, his
broken switch in his hand.
"Lill," he said, humbly, "let's go
"Ess, Wallie!" responded Lill cheer
fully. Harper's Young People.
In the shoal waters along the coast
south of Cape Henlopen, terrapin are
caught in various ways. Dredges
dragged along in tho wako of a sail
ing vessel pick them up. Nets stretch
ed across some narrow arm of river
bay entangle the feet of any stray
terrapin in their meshes; but these re
quire the constant attendance of the
fisherman to save the catch from
drowning. In the winter, in the deeper
water, tho terrapin rise from their
muddy quarters on mild sunny days
and crawl along the bottom. They
are taken by tongs, their where
abouts being often betrayed by bub
bles. The method spoken of here is
resorted to only in the spring, and in
waternot over a foot or two in depth.
Turtles will rise at any noise, and
usually the fisherman only claps his
hands, though each hunter has his
own way of attracting the terrapin.
One hunter whom I saw uttered a
queer guttural noise that ecenied to
rise from hip boots.
Whatever the noise, all turtles with
in hearing whether terrapin or "snap
per" will put their heads above wat
er." Both are welcome and are quick
ly sold to the market-men. The
snapper slowly appears and disap
pears, leaving scarcely a ripple; and
the hunter cautiously approaching
usually takes him by the tail. The
terrapin, on the contrary, is quick,
and will descend in an oblique direc
tion, so that a hand-net is needed un
less he happens to come near by. If
he is near enough the man 'jumps for
him. The time for hunting is the
hour at either sunrise or sunset.

Handling a Gun,
Having been asked by friends
frequently for advice for their boys in
handling etuis, I fend you a dont of
same, says a correxpondent of the
roveet and Stream. Perlifipn, ns the
fhooting season will now In on soon,
you might think them worth publica
1. Empty or loaded, never point a
gun toward yourself or any other
2. When a-field, carry your gun at
the half-cock. If in cover, let your
hand shield the hammers from whip
3. When riding from one shooting
ground to another, or whenever you
ha-e your gun in any ccnveyaneiy
remove the cartridges, if a breech
loader, it being eo easy to
replace them. If a muzzle load
er, remove the caps, brush off the
nipples, and place a wad on nipple,
letting down the hammers on wads
simply removing caps sometimes
leaves a little fulminate on the nipple,
and a blow of the hammer when down
4. Never draw a gun toward you
by the barrels.
5. More care is necessary in the use
of a gun in a boat than elsew here; the
limited space, confined action and
uncertain motion makingit dangerous
at the best. If possible, no more than
two persons should occupy a boat.
Hammerless guns are a constant
danger to persons boating.
0. Always clean your gun thorough
ly as soon as you return from a day's
sport, lio matter how tired yon feel;
the consequence of its always being
ready for service is ample return for
the few minutes' irksome labor.
Yawls and Sharpies.
The ccnterboard sloop is by most
thought the fastest kind of yacht; and
very many successful racers, from tho
big "Volunteer" to the little twenty
footer winners in yacht-club regattas,
have no doubt been sloops. But the
sloop-rig is not by any means the
safest and handiest for comfortable
cruising. The yawl and charpio are
much safer and handier than t lie cat
boat and sloop.
The yawl has an extra sail set at
the stern. This is called a "driver,"
"mizzen," "jigger," or "dandy"; and
it is a veritable friend in need at all
times, requiring no care, and being al
ways ready to save you from a cap
size and to help you in a maneuver.
Its position is such that it always
tends to luff the boat. If a squall
strikes a yawl, she may right herself
because of the pressure on this little
driver; if a severe blow comes on, you
can sail in safety with jib and driver
alone, the mainsail being furled; in
fact theyawl, with her mainsail down,
is perfectly manageable, and as safe
os safe can be. No reefing is neces
sary; just lower tho mainsail, and
your yawl is "reefed" at once for the
worst kind of weather. There is al
ways plenty of driving-sail behind,
and with the jib in front to balance
this your boat is under full control.
No sloop possesses such at tributes of
handines3 and safety. V. W, Pang

A Mirror Joke.
The painters have just given tho last
touch to the apartment they have
been "doing up," but they do not wish
to leave without having played their
favorite joke of the "broken mirror"
on the maid.
Judge of the fright of the poor girl
when she thinks she sees one or more
cracks in the corner of the new mirror!
"What will madaiiiesay?" Andthen
those heartless painters laudi until
their sides ache!
After having enjoyed the fright pro
duced by their trick, they nowpropose
to repair the misfortune, and, so as
not to prolong the misery of thoii
victim, one of tho painters passes a
wet ra-g over the broken corner of the
mirror 0 magic! The cracks have
disappeared by the Wonderful power
of the wet rag, and Mario can hardly
believe her eyes surely she must be
dealing with sorcerers! But there is
no sorcery connected with it, dear
children, and if you want to mystify
some of your family or friends, trace
with a piece of dark soap on tho sur
face of the mirror which is to appear
broken some hue lines to represent
cracks; the reflection in the glass will

appearance of being broken, and a sim

Animals Afraid of Thunder.
The editor of the Brunswick Tele
graph, who makes chums of all his
animals and birds, has noticed that
they are often afraid during thunder
storms. "One of my horses," he says
"would be sometimes awfully frighten
ed during such storms, but would
calm down a good deal if I got out
of the carriage and stood by her
head. Tho canary one week during
a heavy shower was allowed to
leave his cage. Some time after he
could not befound. Closer search was
made and it was found that tho little
fellow had crept into the bed and hid
den under tho pillow. He was invited
out, came, played around for a while,
and as the second shower was on
severer than the first again disap
peared in his hiding place under the
pillow." This famed canary isadainty
bird and prefers to cat his food from
a tiny china plate with which his cage
is supplied. The other day, when a
strawberry was tied with a string to
-lie wires of the cage the bird went for
the string tugging away until it was
broken and the strawberry dropped
to the bottom. Then he pulled the
berry and placed it in the plate whev
he ate it. Lewiston Journal.

It It perhaps unfortunate that the
Farmor' Alliance is not protected
from several abuses of its name by
unauthorized parties, sometimes as an
advertising dodge, and sometimes with
intent to inuke a clonk for malicious
publications. A flagrant instance of
the latter kind is revealed in the cir
cular sent out by the Globe Press As
sociation, of New York, advertising
newspaper publications of its matter.
One paragraph reads: Fanners' Alli
ance page, edited by W. C Crura,
general manager of the New York
bureau of the National Farmers' Alli
ance and Reform Press Association.
Price in plates, $1.20 per page,
Aecompanylng this circular is a
shoot of plates by which the publisher
addressed is expected to order. ' For
the benefit of the press at large, it is
here made known thnt the order has
authorized no New York bureau, and
the reform press association organized
at Ocala knows nothing of the matter
disclosed in tho circular. All publi

such authority from tho Alliance are
(also, and in this instance 'the inten
tion sooms to bo to inject into the col

bow discord in the Alliance and weaken
its efforts, and possibly destroy the

be futile, but it is best that the re
form press be put on its guard.
The V.nA and the Remedy.
Tho groat end which the Fanners'
Alliance seeks to compass tho redress
of tho grlcvnnces from which farmers,
in common with the laboring clases
generally, Buffer will bo attained by
bringing government national, state,
county and municipal back to tho
principle that no money is to bo taken
from the people except to support hon
est government, economically adminis
tered; by abolishing all special privil
eges; by coasing to bestow favors upon
tho fow to the detrimont of tho many;
by stopping all partial and class legis
lation, and by providing the country
with currency ample enough to meet
Its steadily incroaslng demands; so
that tho blessings of government shall
fall alike on the millionaire and the
beggar, and that government shall
exercise the narrowest limit of power
consistent with efficiency, and confer
tho broadest liberty upon the citizen
consistent with peace, order and justice.
