The l ow re:
That farmer who makes a study of
nis business will very readily per
ceit-e the valu : of logumes in It i t
crop rotations; not only to obtain the
highest results from a present finan
cial standpoint, but to best preserve
or improve the natural fortuity of
Nitrogen is undoubtedly tho most
valuable ingredient taken from tho
soil, and tne most costly on : to re
place, whorj commercial fertilizers
aro used for reaching that end. To
the farmers of tho West the question
of purchasing nitrogen has hardly
presented itself, they finding it more
profitable to obtain this element by
growing tho legumes. Tho clover
has long hold first rank among these,
and has been found not only to
largely incroaso the fertility of tho
Holds but to produco large quantities
of provender, besides yielding abun
The cow pea is the legume that
has held the highest favor in the
South loi many years, and Is grad
ually extending its domain north
ward. In outh Missouri it is being
extensively grown on fruit lands,
and either eaten down by hogs or
else plowed under when it reaches
its greatest luxuriance In many re
spects the pea is held to be superior
to the clover. In growth it Is more
rapid, and doubtless adds in one sea
son more nitrogen to the soil than a
crop of clover, while as forage for
stock, especially hogs, it is found to
be most excellent '
At present the weds are hard to
obtain and cost $1 or $1.60 per
busheL They may be bought in
Memphis and perhaps .St. Louis and
Kansas City; it is probably best to
have your local seedsmen order them
for you, writes I). V. May of the
Missouri agricultural college, in
Col man's ltural World. Avoid
weevily peas. It is claimed by many
that tho weevil attacks only tho
starchy matters and novor injures
tho embryo, however this may be,
careful experiments have proven
that weevily peas more often fall to
sprout, while those that do sprout
are found to be less thrifty than
those vines grown from good seed.
There aro throe main objects in
tho culture of the cow pea, it may bo
grown for plant food or manure, for
forage and for a money crop. As a
manurial crop It Is either sown
broadcast or narrowed in, or else
sown In corn after tho last plowing.
The method of sowing will determine
tho amount of seed per aero, it vary
ing from, one to four bushels ot sixty
pounds to tho bushel. When alone
it is best to sow as early us possible
in tho spring, waiting until the
ground is warm and dangor of hard
frosts is past. Some growers prefer
to wait until the first, or even as late
as the middle of Juno in order to
avoid tho ravages of the pea burr.
prevalent in some sections. In this
locality, however, I think it unad
visable to wait this late, especially
If tho crop is to bo harvested. When
sown in corn tho object is mauuro or
forage and the sowing is necessarily
late. As a manure tho crop should
bo plowed under just before coming
iuto bloom, as it has been found to
hold at that timo the highest amount
of nitrojrou. If desired, potash and
phosphoric acid may bo addodin
a commercial form: and theso, to
gether with tho nitrogen found in the
pea vino, will add tho three great
requisites to the soil.
In diversified farming it is more
profitable, especially on tho fertile
lauds of the West, where other ob
jects than the curichment of the
land may bo looked for to pasture
the poa crop boforo plowing it in. It
makes a splendid food for the hog in
particular. Care should bo taken in
turning cattlo and horses in upon
tho crop, as death may follow over
eating. They should not be turned
in hungry, but should be fod, water
ed, and salted before; they may then
be loft in as long as desired. Swino
aro very fond of the tea and thoro is
nothing, perhaps, superior for laying
on fat It is best to turn them in
when tho pods are fully developed
and the pea soft. This treatment
not only lays on a large amount of
meat In the stock, but the refuso
roots and manure add very materi
ally to tho fertility of tho soil
Sow a lu corn it add very much to
the value of tho .talk Held, an well
as to tho eui'U'hinont of tho soil;

There are many good reasons why
bulls should bo worked more than
they are, and no good reason that
we aro aware of why they should no
be, except that they are sotnetimet
unruly and hard to manage. When
working in a treadmill, however,
this objection is of little consequence,
and If a little tact is used In feeding
his majesty with a few oats after
his work Is done, ho will soon become
reconciled to the drudgery and take
to it kindly.
Tho bull has advantage of tht
horse for this kind of work in that
ho is not likely to bo in demand for
other work and can be depended upon
Tho improved conveniences of tho
modern dairy farm demand the use
of a cheap power of soino sort for
running tho separator, tho churn,
pumpiug water and sawing wood and
cutting fodder, which can be
done whenever tho wind blows aud
occasion demands. B it a power that
can bo depended upon for moderate
work dally, without regard to wind,
and that shall be loss expensive and
troublesome than steam, is in de
mand on many dairy farms, and the
bull seoins admirably qualified to fill
There can be no question that
modorato daily exercise is a good
thing for the bull; it makes him
more vigorous and sure as a sire,
more t far table and less dangerous to
handle, and greatly diminishes tho
risk of his suddenly becoming treach
erous. The testimony of many farm
ers who have tried it is unanimous
on those points.

The white grub is tho especial en
cm of strawberry growers, because
tho two your-old clover sod, which it
Is generally advised to plow under
for making a strawborry bod, is
usually filled with these posts. The
best way to get rid of the grubs is to
turn a lot of young, active hogs into
tho patch, fencing it in so as to con
lino their rooting to the spot that is
to bo plowed. Feed tho hogs some
milk and wheat middlings, and then
let them root for tho white grubs.
They will clear the patch sooner
than it can bo done in any other way
and at loss cost. We think, too,1
that tho rooting helps to keep hogs
healthy, and if they are fed as ad

WRECKED BY INCENDIARIES.
The Great World'a Fair Agrlrnlterad
Chicago, Feb. 26. The handsome
Agricultural building at the world's
fair grounds was almost completely
ruined by an incendiary fire this morn
ing and for a time other great struc
tures were in danger.
The flames first started In one cor
ner and running up the outside of the
pillars gained headway in the roof
and spread towards the dome Sn the
center. Once having a start in the
lofty arch, its destruction was a mat
ter of short order. As tho fire spread
through the dry timbers of the roof,
burning embers soon began dropping
to the Ho r and the supports,
gradually weakened, at last gave way,
carrying with them connected parts
of the roof, and the dome pitched in
ruins to the floor. Its fall practically
put an end to the firemen's work.
iSmall patches of flame still were visi
ble around the ragged' edges of the
roof, but Hoods, of water directed
against them soon drowned out all
danger of a spread of the fire.
The destruction of the dome left tht
already partially ruined building even
more unsightly and it now bears little
resemblance to the ornate structure
surmounted by the statue of Diana
which formed a feature of the Court
Hut one theory was advanced at the
grounds regarding the origin of the
tire that an Incendiary was again re
sponsible for the destruction. The
repeated attempts to burn the fair
buildings have Ik-en ascribed to this
The gilded statue of Diana was re
moved about six weeks ap-o and so
escaped destruction in to-day's blaze.
