Weekly market report furnlrhed by
the Flato CommlHflon company of
South Omaha, Neb.:
There has been no change of any con
sequence In the beef cattle line during
the past week, prices for the moat part
having held up strong, with the demand
good from all quarters. During the
last three days of last week, prices
eased off a little. In sympathy with
lower markets at eastern points, but
whatever loss there was has been re
covered in the past two or three days
and the market closed today with
prices showing an upward tendency,
There has been a more liberal mar
keting of corn-fed cattle the past week
than for some time previous, though the
quality has not been more than fair for
the big end of the supplies. Cows und
heifers have been meeting with a ready
demand, the good ones especially meet
ing with ready sale, while the poor and
common ones have generally been taken
care of without many being held over
from day to day. The stocker and feed
er trade was pretty hard hit the last
few days of last week, but has man
aged to hold a little of the fcaln made
last week. Owing to the lightness of
supplies speculators thought the heavy
runs were over and looked for a good
demand from the country, but In this
they were very much disappointed, and
after loading up at advanced prices,
found they were unable to dispose of
their holdings and so had to unload at
almost any price. This has made rather
a backward market the past three days,
as dealers have been a little cautious
about taking on a full supply and then
have the market flatten out as it did
The decline in the hog market contln
ues with great regularity, and prices
today show an average decline of 68 3-S
cents from October 4, the high point of
the month. It Is always expected that
packers will use their utmost endeav
ors to break the market during Octo
ber, but the decline this year has had
few equals in the past twelve years, the
exceptions being the years '92 and '96,
when the market closed higher for the
month than the opening, and in 1891.
when the average decline for the month
was 88 cents. This year the month in
question shows an average decline of
almost 70 cents In two weeks. Prices
are still pretty high for this season of
the year, there being only three other
years when they were selling cs high
or higher than at present. In the month
of October, 1892, the average cost was
15.51, in "93, J6.85, and in '94, $4.67.

A fifteen-acre patch of the crass was

INSECTS INJURIOUS TO ALFALFA.
The widespread and successful cul
ture of alfalfa in Nebraska has induced
the entomologists of the experiment sta
tion at Lincoln to take up a work hith
erto left untouched in the systematic
study of the insects that feed upon it.
It is well known that this plant is re
markably exempt from insect attack.
Indeed this fact has been one of the
strongest points in Its favor in the eyes
of those who are used to a constant
warfare against insects destroying the
staple crops. In this study It has been
found necessary, on account of the
close relationship between alfalfa and
several others commonly cultivated
plants known collectively as clovers, re
sulting In the discovery that many In
sects attack the one as well as the
other, to include all of the clover-like
plants In the Investigation. It has been
found that no less than 174 species,
attacking the roots, stem, leaves, or
even the seed have been noted. The
last list, published in 1889, contained
89 species. The recent list from the
University of Nebraska, which is pub
lished In the annual report of the State
Board of Agriculture, thus lacks only
four of doubling the number hitherto
The department of botany of the Uni-,
versity of Nebraska has undertaken to
make a complete collection of the poi
sonous plants of Nebraska, and asks
every one who Is Interested In this mat
ter to give aid by sending samples, ac
companied by notes, as to the poisonous
qualities of the plants, with other in
formation which may be helpful. Stock
men In particular are asked to eive
this matter their attention. Samples

SOME HARDY WHEATS.
There were 137 different varieties ol
ftunsian winter wheat planted on thr
J. P. txporlment Htation farm at Lln
oln !at fall. These wheats had beon
frown in Kansas the year before, hav
ng been brought directly from Russia
0. the experiment station there. Of Ihi-
mtlre number there were oniy iiiie o:
bur varitiea that make a fair showing
t the present time, and none that can
e said to have withstood the wintet
atlsfactorlly. On the other hand th
hree American varieties, Turkish Red,
ligr Frame and Currell, that have been
ested at the station for several years,
.nd selected on account of their hardi
tess, are In good condition. The stand
nay be rated at SO per cent. These
vlieats were all grow n In the same field.
ALFALFA IN WINTER.
Alfalfa Is a dry weather plunt even
n winter. In order to note the effect
if a covering of raw upon the alfalfa
slut fence was stretched across a
Sorty-acre alfalfa field on the V. S. ex
leriment station arm at Lincoln In the
fall. The effect was to keep a snot.
ift ulong one side of the fence a con
siderable portion of the winter. Where
the drift lay the alfalfa is badly killed
jut, while further away from the fence
ivhete the wind had full sweep it Is In
-ocd condition. It is also noticeable
lhat the alfalfa In the draws suffered
nove durinff the winter than that on
llgh ground. These and other obser
vations point to the conclusion that dry
ness especially of the' soli during the
winter Is the most favorable condition
for the alfalfa plant. In the eastern
part of the state it Is undoubtedly bet
er to sow alfalfa on high land rather
than on land that Is likely to be wet
when It freezes In the winter.
In one of alfalfa fields on the station
farm there Is a low pTece of ground on
wMch It has been Impossible to main
tain a stand of alfalfa. This place has
be-n seeded to alslke clover, to the
growth of which It has proven to be
quite well adapted. The spot also con
tains considerable alkali.

This winter the Brome grass estab

Farmers and poultrymen who have
had much experience with poultry
know how unsatisfactory it is to doctor
fowls that are sick. It is a task as un.
thankful as It is generally unsuccess
ful. If the hen Is a valuable one and
has been pretty sick with some of the
well known disease, and is fna ly u eil
she will never be what she was before
her sickness. In order to make the
shortest cut in the business the ax is
often brought Into use as the safest
and, perhaps, the best way to cure
many fowls. In the first place, every
thing should be done that can be to
prevent disease, and when that is done
the poultryman has done about all he
When all fowls are watered In strictly
clean vessels, twice a day in winter and
ihtec or more times In Bummer, being ,
very careful that all watering vessels
are kept In the shade In the summer
time; and when young if fows are wat
ered five times a day there should be
no cause for disease from this source.
War should fee waged on vermin con
tinually. Make a beginning on the first
day of the year and close on the last,
metaphorically speaking, which means
that the entire season when vermin
flourishes should be devoted to a con
stant warfare. V.'e fear that on many
farms good, sound, wholesome food Is
not always provided for poultry, and
what is furnished is not supplied with
that regularity which good health
would require. Provide plenty of grit,
which should consist of some of the
grits In th market, or good, coarse
gravel, and this should be constantly
before the fowls. Oyster shells may be
furnished occasionally, althotifsh then-
are nor. consioereo a necessity. Keen
tne nouses scrupulously clean and swee
ty cleaning them out often and liming
inem as orten as once a week in win
ter and two or three times a week In
summer. e place a great deal of
stress on keeping the houses scrupu
lously clean in summer time and the
use of a great deal of lime.
One other source of disease that is not
thought of by the casual observer is
found in the food that Is left and per
mutea To necome sour. This causes
bowel disorders that are far more eas
II v prevented than cured. In order to
prevent them, care should be taken to
give the fowls, In a clean place, no
more food than will be eaten. , If fed In
troughs they are to be kept clean; If
fed on boards they are to be kept In
the same manner. Provide good, warm
houses In winter, which are cool and
dry In summer. These should have
scratching sheds attached, so that the
fowls may have access to them In win
ter and on bad days in summer In or
der to obtain exercise. These mav be
made tight on three sides and covered
with netting on the south.
For many years we have been prac
th ing these methods, and we very sel
dom have a sick fowl. When a fowl Is
noticed to be off In nny wny she Is ex
amined, and If pretty sick off comes
her head and she Is buried nnd Is out
of the way; nor It does not matter how
valuable she Is, ns we can belter afford
to lose her than to lose several as val
uable by leaving her with the flock to
spread dlseas. V.'e have never spent
much time In doctor Ing chickens. It Is
unsatisfactory and It does not pay, as
a rule. We will dot-tor if neces.iary for
lce "and mlte on f hlrks, but we are
not much troubled In this way, since
