'Artichoke for Swine.
Farmers who want a. cheap, easily
raised and yet excellent food lor their
swine can find it in the red or Brazil
ian artichoke. Anion; the advantages
enumerated as In-longing to this crop
not the least is that it can be planted
in either fall or spring, as is most con
venient, and that when the work is
once done it stays planted indefinite
ly. Then, unlike most other crops of
useful plants, artichokes require little
or no cultivation except what they
get from the industrious rooting of the
hogs, who, as one authority says, will
cheerfully do both the cultivating and
harvesting at the times and in the
way that will do the most good. The
yield is enormous, and the roots are
a wholesome corrective of the system,
so that it is said a pig pastured on
artichokes with cholera would be an
The planting of an artichoke field,
and its subsequent culture until ready
fnr the aivine. does Jiot involve very
great labor. The best place for it is
a piece of low land, with a deep, rich
soil, near a brook. It should be deep
ly plowed 'when not too wet, and
thnmiiirhlv harrowed. Theseed, about
six bushels to the acre, should be
planted after the frost is out in the
Hnd before June, in drills three
fflfc nnrt. and a foot apart in the
mm. The tubers should be cut like
potatoes for spring planting, covered
with not less than three inches of soil,
ami afterwards rolled. If notcouven
innt to nlant in the snrinc. it can be
done in the fall, from about the mid
din of October to the middle of Novem
ber but in fall seeding experience has
shown that thebestresuitsareoDiain
l lw lil.intins the whole tubers.
When the plants are three inches
hiirh in the surine. it is advantageous
to run the cultivator between the
rows in order to check the growth of
weeds, although the artichoke is
.nnnihof a weed itself to triumph
over most oppononts in the struggle
With the weather favorable during
t.h summer that is. if there has
been a good supply of rain the crop
will usually be ready for the swine by
the latter part of September; but in a
sei ion too dry for vigorous growth it
is better to postpone their onslaught
for two or three weeks. They may
then be allowed to forage until the
ground freezes. After the frost is out
of the ground in the spring, they may
be turned in again to root until the
beginning or middle of June.
It is calculated that after a season
favorable for growth an acre will sup
ply ample forace for forty head Of
swine, and still leave enough roots
in the ground for re-seeding.
Although artichokes do not form a
complete food for swine they will
answer very well for a time in the fall
and spring without other food.
A Subsoiling- Experiment.
As we have often suggested, every
farm ought to be to some extent an
experiment station. The facts learned
in this way aredoubly valuable first,
because they stimulate the mind of
the experimenter, and, second, be
cause the discoveries made have a di
rect local bearing. Experiments made
at a station may or may not indicate
what is needed on a particular farm;
but experiments on that farm, if in
telligently conducted, show what can
done riffht there on that identical
niece of land.
And one of the experiments that it
wnnlrl be well to make would be that
of subsoil plowing. There is a wide
difference of opinion among intelligent
farmers as to this matter. Some are
t:rrmfr!v onnosed to it as not only
iialfsa but actually injurious, while
others with eaual insistence maintain
that it is essential to the best ' results
Both, no doubt, are right, but are
rftasonina from different points of
iw. Snm soils reouire subsoilina,
others do not, and that is the simple
Uma of the difference of opinion with
rmrnrd to it.
Rut it cannot alwavs be determined,
without trial, whether any particular
soil will be benefited by subsoiling or
not. And here comes in the local ap
plication of the experiment station
. A method of doing this, as sugcested
by the secretary of the Kansas State
Board of Agriculture, is as follows:
Plow and subsoil two or three strips
about two rods wide, from sixteen to
twenty inches deep, across the field
selected for the experiment, and let
the remainder of the field be plowed to
the usual depth and not subsoiled.
The surface preparation . of both
should be the same before planting.
Thpn nlant the entire field at once,
or in sections, but so that each plant
ing will cover attnesameume mesuu
urulnd and nnsubsoiled parts
and mva exactly the same culti
vationto the entire field while the
crop is crowing. Keep a careful rec
ord of the. varying conditions of the
weather and note the differences, if
nv. in fche crowth of the plants, and,
after harvesting, the difference in the
yield and quantity of the grain
By such an experiment as this the
utility of subsoiling on his own land
mav be practically ascertained by
every farmer. II the difference in the
amount and quality of thecropshould
not be ereat enough to pay lor the in
creased cost of subsoiling, all the theo
rizing in the world will not justify the
expense. But the operation has so
nft-.en -nroved a source of increased
nmtit that no farmer should be satis
fied until he has tested it for himself
and dufinitelv ascertained that on his
farm, at least, it costs more than it
Wheat Harvesting In California
But the last two years have wit
nessed another development of ma
chinery in California wheat culture.
Steam power ha9 been successfully
applied, and a very great reduction in
cost has been made. In the summer
of 1889 a large number of field engines
built here, on California designs, were
tu the fields with astonishing results.
The Urgmt of I hem cut wth of 40
feet, awl larvftel lb crop at cost
for running xpet)fes of ieos than 23
rrtiti per acre. as naitiKt $ 1.73 of the
old sysU'tn. Tlte name engine ia M
pected to plow, carrying 12 or 20, or
even 40 plows, and, since it is a road
engine, it will niul tne crop to
the nearest station or landing
at less espense than if hauled with
horses. The price of such an engine,
with the hart-eater and thresher, is
from $3,000 to $8,000 at present,
but this cost, it is sail, will soon be re
duced. From the talk among wheat
growers, two or three years will wit
ness the introduction oi sieam on tn
large ranches. The engines are"etraw-
burners, ' or, when plowing, woou can
boused. Coal is very ingn on me
Pacific coast, and therefore coal-burning
engines will never be profitable
here. I have asked wheat raisers what
they thought would be the cost oi
plowing, harrowing:, seeding, harvest
ing and delivering at the station, if
these steam engines do what is ex
pected. They answer: "About $1 an
acre, on the easily farmed lands, and
not more than $2 anywhere. mis,

Comparative Yields of Corn.
A correspondent of the National
Stockman says that in testing some
20 varieties of corn in which the prep
aration of soil, planting and cultivat
ing were the same as well as the
character ot the soil, he found the
yield varied from 33 to 83 bushels
per acre, Pride of the North, a small
early variety , with a stalk of 10 feet
and lipening July 15, and the Mas
todon, a large variety with a stalk of
13 feet and ripening the first week in
August, representing the extremes,

ties of medium corn. The yield and
adaptability of different varities of
corn in any section are questions
of close attention and experiment.
Exerv farmer should at
aside an acre of ground that is uni
form as to all necessary points in
corh culture and then plant the same
number of rows to a half dozen varie
ties of corn, giving them equal and
imnartial care. A half pound or
pound of seed each, will not bo very
expensive. Part of it may easily be
secured by exchanging with farmers
in other sections. The experiment

many ways full of instruction. Look

for it next spring.

Another lntreilf rult of intro
ducing' activity into a alow-coiof,
deai-allve community was shown in
markoUff our silver. Our operations
r:.-)Uired the monthly payment of a
large win. The effect im to make
silver comparatively plentiful in a
frontier reg'on where it had been
comparatively scarce. The few hun
dred thousand dollars we paid out in
creased the '-risible u.iply" of silver
in the market towns very materially.
V ben I went to Mongolia we sola a
tail (a Chinese ounco) of silver for
more than 3, 100 coppar cash. When
left we had to take less than 3. 100
cosh for it This fallia? off in tba
purchasing value of silver is an evi
dence ot the vory limited extent
of commercial transactions in
that country and of the readi
ness with which local plethora
or deficiency can be brought about
in a community thut ba no otber
mode of e xhiuge than the movement
of silver bulliia by carts. Silver Is
not a currency In China It Is bullion
sold by weight at whatever exchange
rate may rule from day to day. The
currency is really the copper casn,
writes John A. Church In the im
pineorins' Magazine. We sent our sil
ver bullion to the market towu and
there gold it for copper cash and notes .
of a local bank. The notes were cur
rency, of course, but thoy had only a
local use and were not unlike the notes
of the wildcut" hanks, formerly
known in America. The copper cash
had the value of 1-23 of a gold cent or
1-iO of a silver cost One hundred
dollars worth would load a mule
heavily. Cah are tied up In 'strings"
of 2i0 coins, each cola representing a
cash. The strings break frequently,
and the floor of the bullion vault was
always littered with p'les of loose
cash. On one occasion we
failed to make preparation of
cash for paying off in time
to rocct tho exigencies of an Import
tant foast which was nearly coincident
with pay day. I had a cake of bullion
fresh from the furnace cut up into
small pieces and the pieces sent to the
native refiner to be made into small
cakes of about live ounces each. These
were cut into halves, quarters,
eighths, and other divisions. - Some
were beaten out on the anvil and cut
into "chicken feed, " or pieces about
the sizo of corn. With this assort
ment a good p:lp balance and Chi
nese weights, every piece whs weighed
and Its value calculated at the rate of
exchange then current In this way
wo paid about 200 men daily. The
men liked the plan, though the shop
keepers, to whom all of them owed
something, roaped a harvest of
'squeezos," or pelty deductions, but
there was relief from ihe uncertain
value of notes. '
