( nttlng Cora Stalk.
The season for cutting corn stalk Is
at band for the large cla of farmers
who do not put them In alios. Almost
every farmer w-bo feed corn stalks to
cow ha them cut It Is not always
safe to fed horses the cut stalks, as
their digestive apparatus 1 different.
The hard, wisxly stalks, cut In small
pieces, may Injure a horse' Intestines
before the gastric Juices have time to
soften them. The feed when eaten by
the cow goes more lu a mass and Is
brought up and rechewed In her cud.
For Uil reason cut cum stalk ought
not to be fed to horse unless first wet
with warm water to soften them, then
the hard portion of them will le left
uneaten. A horse will not eat much
more of the corn stalk after It I cut
than It will before. If cheap, bulky

for horses It hud better In- cut straw or
hay than cut com stajk. But the corn
stalks for cow ought alwsy to be cut
before feeding. If they are wet with

with this will make a complete ration

KuftUm of Crop i Tostoat,
To determine the exact effect of ci
tation, a aeries of experiment have
been conducted by the ludiana station.
Of the plots upon wblch grain crop are
grown continuously a portion are de
voted exclusively to wheat, while upon
others wheat la grown In alternatlou
with corn and oat. la the plots da-
grown In rotation the average yield for I
the seven year waa 21 !1 bushels er !
sere, and In ism It was 22 7 bushels. !
The difference in favor of rotation for '
the perlix! of seven year averaged 5.72
bushiis per acre, and lu lv.M It
amounted to !.!! bushels per acre.
Thus It Is shown that wheat produced
over a third more when growu in ntv

The Hev. W. H. H. Murray, who nn
dcratood horses as well as Adiron

to trimming a horse foot that every
horseman lu the world should cut icit
aud paste In his hat "Never," he says,
"allow the knife to touch the sole of
your horse's foot, nor the least bit of It
to be pared a w ay . because nature needs
the full bulk of It and has amply pro
vided for Its removal at the proper
time. Secondly, never allow a knife to
be put to the frog, because nature
never provides too much of It to an
swer the purxww for which the Creator
designed It and the larger It Is the
more swiftly, easily and safely will
your horse go."
