ue of Experiment How Ho
Called the Cow Egg In
Farming Yesterday and To-Day.
Farmers whose memories date back
forty, fitiy or sixty years can recall
how much harder the labors of the ag
riculturalist werp then than now! The
vast improvements in farm machinery
and implements of all kinds Lave
p-eatly lessened his toil, and cotres
pondingly increased his power. What
an enormous difference there is, for in
stance, between the mowing and reap
ing implements of former times and
now. Mowing with a scythe was good,
stalwart, manly exercise, but it was
slow and laborious business compar
ed with the ingenious mowing machine
of to-day. And cradling grain-what
tedious, toilsome work it was! So,
too, was the threshing with the hand
flail on the barn floor. Fine athletics
it was when two sturdy young fellows
beat the grain with alternate strokes,
md filled the air with the rhythm
of their fast-falline blows. But
it was tiresome labor, and how
inelficent compared with the machine
that now so quickly accomplishes the
task! Jt is calculated that the power
of the individual has been about
doubled by the change from manual
tn nnu'hint labor.
We are so accustomed to these and
similar wonderful mechanical con
trivances that we do not realize how
great a change the invention of them
has wrought in the methods and re
ouirements of liunilan labor. There
are men still living to whom, in their
bovhood. the mode of traveling was
essentially the same as when the
Founder of Christianity walked about
the hills and valleys of Judea, or rode
upon an ass's colt in his triumphal
eutrv into Jerusalem. But now the
humblest laborer mav be whirled
along in royal state at the marvel
ous pace of lifty miles an hour. And
enuallv creat has been the revolution
in the arts of husbandry. The New
England farmer of half a century ago
reaped and threshed his grain with
implements hardly less rude than
were wielded bv the reapers whom
Ruth the Moabitess followed in the
fieldlof Boaz. But the use of machin
ery naa emancipated him from the
heaviest drudcerv of the farm. The
wonder is how any man found oppor
tunity, in those "cood old times," to
eat or sleep or think. "Good old
times," forsooth! The good times are
now, tonlay, and will be to-morrow
in even creater decree, as further
labor-saving appliances lessen the de
mand for manual toil. .
These chances have been so gradual
that we do not fully realize their
broad import. But they mean much
They mean increased opportunity
for mental enlargement, for growth
in refinement, for increased comfort
In the home, for the betterment of
every man and woman and child as
sociated with farm life, lo be sure,
the farmer is still obliged to work, and'
work hard, to obtain the things deem
ed essential to comfortable and sub
stantial livine. But his work counts
lor move than in former days; and
while, perhaps, he works as hard as
formerly, he does not have to work so
long, and the labor is in consequence
hot bo wearing to mina ana Doay. iie

thouchts and the enjoyment of the
good his labor has secured.
There is. in fact, no life more envi-

knows how to make the most of his
farm and of himself. He is working
with and in the presence of nature,
and if. in such kindly companionships.
lie is not hanDV. why. he oucht to be
heartily ashamed of himself.
Value of Experiments.
The average farmer should do more
experimenting, as the knowledge thus
gained is noteasily forgotten. I don't
mean that he should experiment with
lightning-rod peddlers, Bohemian oats
agents, wort mess patent rigrus, or in
Wall street or Chicago stock specula
tion, "grave-yard" insurance, whiskey
drinkinc or even with the various new
fancied machinery, etc., with which the
country is nooueu. iuiskihuoi ci
nerimentins has morally and finan
cially ruined thousands of homes, and
farmers should give all sucn tilings
wide berth. But they should expert
ment in the use of commercial
fertilizers, early and late seed
inc. deep and shallow seeding, etc. W
read of the result, of such experiments
at our experiment stations, but soon
forget all about them, whereas were
feiiev made bv ourselves and on our
own farms thev would produce a last
inc. impression and bo of real practical
yalue to us.
If we farm intelligently we must do
some experimenting. It will not do to
leave this for our neighbors or the ex
jierimcnt stations to do for us. When
it comes to experimenting with com
mercial fertilizers fanners are entirely
too careless. Experiments to deter
mine the merits of a fertilizer may be
easilv made and unless they are made
the farmer goes groping along in the
dark not knowinc to what extent, if
any, his crops aae benefited thereby,
In drilling a field, atrips a rod or more
in width should always be lelt tin
fertilized. Two or three or
more of such strips should ba
left in every field, according to its size
and variety of soil. Don't be satisfied
with one or tsrostrips the width of
the drill, but reave strips a rod or
more wide. Don't think because it
benefits the crop on one field that it
will necessarily do good anywhere on
your farm, Don't think because it
gives satisfactory results one year
that it will another. The season may
be against it. Don t think because
certain brand does good one season
that it will do to tie to that
brand. Your soil may soon need
something else, or the manuincturer
may adulterate that brand after se
curing a good trade, or even before,
and unless you test your fertilizer
each year and ascertain its merits, or
demerits, you may "get left." Now
brother farmers, when it comes to us
ing this costly articledon't co gropinj
along in the dark, but test it and "let
Uiere be light." Frank Leslie in Ohio
Eggs In Canada,
As to the Canadian egg trade there
can be no doubt that it lias expanded
this season to a greater extent than
even the moet sanguine ex pected. In
quiries made this week show, however.
that the quality 01 consignments ess
not been so welt maintained during
the past few weeks. There have, of
course, been notable exceptions, but
the general tendency has been down
wards rather than upwards m the
quality of the egg in the packing. The
general opinion of those in the trade
who have been consulted is mat mere
is a lame and permanent market for
Canadian eegs if only due careistaken
by the shippers. The market is,
however, only a poor one for eggs
of the hall-stale character wnun nave
been coming forward recently. Card
board boxes, moreover, will not do
for the packing; they not only m-
rease the breakages but give a musty
smell to the eggs and lessen their mar
ket value. If the eggs are taken when
a perfectly fresh condition and
packed according to the methods sug
gested by the Dominion authorities,
and sorted into tneir oinerent sizes;
there can be no doubt that a fairly
remunerative market will be always
found for them. But it is imperative
that the quality of the eggs should be
maintained if Canada is to secure a
good reputation on the London mar
ket. In Liverpool, Glasgow, and other
points, an even larger demand exist,
and there, as in London, everything
depends upon the quality of the eggs
and the methods ot shipment. caua
Winter Feeding of Sheep.
Sheen do not need to be closely
stabled in winter. They do not thrive
in confinement, and as they do not
mind the cold, it is safe to keep them
in the open air. But they do suffer
from cold winds and rain, so that
suitable shelter should be provided
for them against winter storms and
blasts. A yard inclosed with a tight
board fence, with a shed on the north
side, open to ths south and tightly
closed on the other three sides, is rec
ommended as the best winter quar
ters. The feed should consist of grain,
bright straw, clover hay and corn
fodder. Clover is rnked first as a feed
for sheep. A half pint of grain once
or twice a day, with good straw, is re
garded by some iIock masters as a
Butticient ration, uariey straw is
considered the best, with oats, wheat
and rve in the order named.
.... . ... .
There should always De a supply oi
water within reach. It is not cooo
policy to depend on snow in place of
water, for, although the sheep will
siaKe tneir tiiirsu itn biiuw, iv o neu

should also be constantly on hand,
where they can get it when they want
it. The American rock salt is by tar
the best, and lumps may he placed in
the yard for their use. This is prefer
able to civr' ' fine salt occasionally,

How He Called the Cow.
He lives just outside tho corpora
tion limits, where there are large conv
mons on which the cows pasture,
Having a large lawn, he mows the
grass with an attachment to his lawn
mower which catches the grass cut.
This he feeds to his cow at night, and
her toothsome lunch of fresh-mown
grass has come to be a looked
for evening occurence. The
other evening a friend went out
to spend tho night. After tea
the gentleman's wife remarked to him:
The cow has not come nome yet;
hadn't you better start her?" 'lYes,"
was the answer, and then while his
city friend watched to see him perform
the office of cowboy he deliberately
got out his lawn mower and began
marching back ana ionn across me
shaven sod, as though there was no
matter of cream for the coffee next
morning at stake. "Did you torget
what your wile said about the cowr
the friend asked presently. "Forget?
No; isn't she there?" He looked mthe
direction indicated, and there sure
enough, was Sukey with her nose over
the fence. "Sent a boy after her?"
"No. I called her." But I didn't hear
you." "xes you did; you ve oeen
standing right here." "But you
haven't said a word." "But I called
the cow just the same.and she heard
the call the noise of the lawn-mower."
And sure enough, every night when the
cow hears that, sue comes trotting
home. Maryland Farmer.
Accumulator In the Dairy.
The introduction of the accumula
tor into the dairy, in view of late ex
periments, is apt to drive one knotty
noint out of the business and that is
the churnabilitv of milk. That
nrettv much a hobcoblin at best, but
actual experiment at the stations has
proven that while the milk of the dif
ferent breeds did vary some tn the
amount of fat left in the skun-milk
and buttermilk when the mi!k was set
by the deep cold system, or the shal
low warm system, yet when the ma
chine made the butter directly from
the milk there was no unchurnability
about it, there being no tat left in tho
skimmilk. This is as it should be, and
we can all join in in welcoming the
centifrugal buttermnker that elimin
ates all of the troublesome doubts,
delays and vexations of the churn
with its more than dangerous funki
ness, especially if it is one of the clo3
The way to have healthy cows is to
feed and care for them right from calf
hood up to maturity.
Havo healthy cows on healthy feed
and you will have littlecause for com
plaint as regards sickness.
Remember that in working brine
salted butter the object sought is to
get rid of the extra moisture and to
make the butter compact.
The practice of burning the trim
mings from berries and grapes is a
good one. It destroys in the embryo
thousands of enemies to these plants.
Coarse, light hay thrown over
spinach will usually carry it through
the winter in open ground, provided
water does not stand on the land.
It is said that at Rambouillet, near
Versailes, Merino sheep have been bred
for more than acentury, and the flock
is known all over the world.
There are too many farmers still re
maining who boast of being practical
men at their work, and manifest a
holy horror of what they call book
To bring success in the sljeep busi
ness, it is as necessary here to hav
some practical knowledge of the sheep,
its peculiarities and necessities, as it
, any other vocation.
Another Tinneri' Statement
Gibbon Neb., Jan , It, 1893.
Ekitob Aluakcb: We notice la
Tub Alliance of Dee. 25ih a " farmers
statement " which would need consider
able altering before the farmer would
realise any pro tit.
U. B. Miller starts ont with a family
of five, including one plow boy, three
men and a woman. For the years busi
ness, says, will need 160 acres of land,
at $25.00 per acre; two teams, imple
ments, two sows, two cows, hay, grain,
provisions, taxes, doctor, blacksmith
bills etc., all making at a fair valuation
a total of $5,239.00.

We would have figured that thus,
1914.00 523 C $o90.10 as wages for
three men, wife and one boy if we could
pay the years expenses as he did, sini-
ly wttn interest on tne money investea.
lut we have found by bitter experience
that it takes cash to pay the expenses
on a farm, for seed, store bill, for doo
tor and blai ksmith bill, taxes, eto , and
prefer to count the interest (if we get
any) as income instead of expenses. A
man could not make a success oi any
business, not even banking if he ran
around as brother Miller suggests, and
borrowed his entire capital slock on tne
creditor his fj lends, paying from one
to three per cent per month.
Further, two of these men ougnt to
seek other employment.as one man and
a boy could give two teams all they
could do and raise as much as indicated
in the statement. Several of my neigh
bors hive beat that single-handed.
He ought to keep twenty head of
young steers on what wss wasted, i. t
straw and stalks, and fed twenty morr,
and fed at least fifty head of hogs in
stead of selling corn at twenty cents.

In Holland the Kitchen Is Kept In

The Holland cities are the cleanest
in the world. The Hague, a city of
perhaps 100,000 inhabitants, is bo
thoroughly clean that everything

street is so thoroughly washed and

from 8 to 9:30 o'clock the servants

They scrub the doors, the porches,

Boycott the Political Press.
A boycott Is a hateful thing, but
there are times when it is not only
right, but highly commendable and
necessary. Such, a necessity is now
forced upon the farmers and laborers
of the country by tho action of the
political press. If the political press
was engaged in a fair discussion of
the demands ot the people, and was
disposed to truthfully report the suc
cessive steps in the forward movement
of the great industrial army, the peo
ple might let It go on its way; but
since it has nothing but ridicule to
offer in opposition to the demands.
and nothing but lies, systematic, will
ful and malicious, in its columns in
regard to the course and strength of
the movement and the action ot the
loaders it has become not qnly right,
but an imperative duty on the part of
every farmer and laborer to curtail,
so far as in him lies, the circulation
of this inimical press. Go about it
symtematicsHy. Discuss it in your
sub-Alliances, and lodges, and unions.
Find out who is taking and reading
the weekly editions of the metropoli
tan press, and show him that he, if he
is an Alllanceman or a reformer, is a
traitor to his ewn cause in furnishing
the sinews of war to his enemies. A
farmer has little of the true spirit of
manhood in him that subscribes and
pays for a paper having in its columns
nothing but ridicule and taunt for his
class, and malicious lies about his ef
forts to achieve independence of pluto
cratic rule, Don't let the lying sheets
cross the thresholds of your homos,
no matter what the name or where
published. Plutocracy, owns the po
litical press of the country and Is
using its tremendous power to crush
out the liberties of the people. You
remember the Hazzard circular. The
venal press has always been the will
ing tool of financial tyrants, and its
power to mould the opinion of the
people nas been used by them most
effectively. Therefore let every farm
er and laborer go to work to break
down the political press that is fight
ing us, and strive to extend the circu
lation of the reform press that is
working for our interests "without
money and without price." The
A Dlag-raeeful Scramble.
Republican papers have engaged in
much criticism of office seeking in the
People's party. Their columns have
been filled to overflowing with ac
counts of the great number of men
who are anxious to sacrifice them
selves upon the altar of their country.
We would suggest that they now give
apppropriate notice of the senatorial
campaign a short time ago in To
peka. The lifeless body of the late
stricken Senator was not cold until
the politicians began to assemble in
this city to manipulate the wires, nnd
negotiate the trades by which his suc
cessor was to secure hi? so at A more
disgraceful scramble was never wit
nessed. It would seem that in a case
of this kind, common decency and a
respect for the family of the deceased
senator should have prevented the ex
hibition that has been witnessed in
the past few days; but decency among
Republican politicians is an urtknown
quantity. 'Jialk of ruining the credit
ot the state! If its credit can with
stand the reproach merited by the acts
of the Republican politicians, it will
withstand anything that is likely to
occur. Topeka, Kan., Advocate.
