A Herd Law for Nebraska !
. As our readers are aware, we have
always personally been in favor of a
general Herd Law. While a member
of the Legislature, we voted, under
Instructions from what we believed to
bo a majority of constituents, against
the measure. Our convictions, how
ever. a3 to what is the real interests of
this prairie country has never chaug
ed, but grown stronger by experience
The Journal of Agriculture, of St
Louis, published an article pome time
ago, headed "Nebraska State Board
of Agriculture," in which it referred
to efforts in our Legislature In regard
to the Herd Law and from wmcn we
extract the following:
"The State Board lives on a epare
diet, and yet appears to le vigorous
It received only fGOO from the State
last vear: but after paying all expen
pes $73 were left in its treasury. But
tho Board is composed of live men,
who believe in dowg something aa
well as talking about it. They have
at their recent meetings discussed
three questions of the highest impor
tanco to the State : Introduction of
Ttxas Cattle, Tree Planting, and
A large portion of tho most fertile
part of that State Is nearly destitute
of timber. Hence tho imiortance of
planting croves. But to do this suc
cessfully the cattle must be kept from
tho young trees, as well as from other
crops, wuicu must ue raised (11 raised
at all, in many cases) on laud not en
closed; so that the hrst tiling to be
done is to take care of the stock. Two
plans are proposed; first, to pass a law
requiring that all stock shall be re
strained by the owner from encroach
ing on the cultivated fields of other
persons, and leaving it for each coun
ty to adopt or not, as they may choose
second, to make such a law at one
supreme and binding on the whole
We sincerely hope that the expert
ment will be tried.
Let Nebraska adopt such a law and
her treeless prairies would soon bo dot
ted over with rustic homes, around
which would rapidly spring up groves
more or less extensive, transposing the
present desolation into a scene of un-
equaled beaut jT. under such a law
may be that occasionally a poor man
might not be able to keep a cow, as he
now does, by letting her live largely
at the exiK'Xiseuf his neighbors. But
where one sucli c;uso would occur we
mlht reasonably expect to see a score
of poor men making homes lor tucm
selves on the prairies, who are now
doterred from such an undertaking bv
tho want of means to fence the few
acres they can buy. As an induce
ment to immigrants we tninu a -new
prairie State could adopt no more sue
ccssful measure than the passage of i
herd law like that now advocated bv
prominent men in Nebraska
Enterprise of the "Rural JTcw
Our friend, D. D. T. Moore, publish
er and proprietor of this magnificent
agricultural journal, seems to be pos
sessed of a Moore discontented dispo
sition than men generally, a by the
issue of the 10th of last month, he
showed himself not satisfied with the
laurels already gained iu the greatly
enlarged size and other additions to
his paper, but has been getting up stil
Moore improvements. Iu this issue
he has given us decidedly tho finest
poultry engraving yet mado in this
country, embracing some twelve of
the choice and prize poultry at tho re
cent New York Poultry Exhibition
Every one of the birds thus delineated
will boar critical inspection, and the
grouping also is admirable, Moore so
than usual. Moore subscribers to his
Tery valuable paper will doubtless re-
"milt from thi3 Moore than ordinary
enterprise, wmcn, we wouia suppose
would cost near five hundred dollars
as we observe that an extra thick
raper had to be manufactured for the
purpose. The motto of the Rural Xctv

he Is far Moore entitled to it than

Tlie Antl-Uors Racing: Slove-
There is ageneral movement among
the true friends of agricultural im
provement, throughout this country,
against the toleration of horse racing
at agricultural fairs.
The Patrons of Husbandry have co-
rlarwl tvr Acalnst the practice. The
only plea upon which it is defended Is
that of financial expeuioucy iuai
fairs cannot be sustained without horso
race3 to attract visitors. A prize fight
between two celebrated pugilists would
irobably attract a much larger num
ber of paving visitors, inciuuing me
whole class who would not pay to get
nto agricultural fair grounds if there
were no horse racing, and the whole
breed of physical improvers who feel
more interest in contests of muscle
than of mind, and find more enjoy
ment in a dog fight, than in any move
ment for the social and intellectual
mprovement of their fellow men.'
"Let turds or reamer noes togeui-
er,".and let there be "a place for ev-;
erythingand everything in its place,"
and then there will be a speedy end to
lorse racing at agricultural fairs. .
"It is." ays Mr. Jb aile, Jate rresi-
dentof the New York State Agricul
tural Society, "undeniably true that
the racing and trotting or horses,
whether at fairs or upon the track, is
accompanied by falsehood, trickery,
rofanity, and the excessive use or in
we would say kindly to those who
advocate horse racing on the plea of
improving the breed of fast horses, is
not what Mr. Faile says of the bail
tendency of horse racing, true And
If the exclusion of such exhibitions
from our fair grounds would have the
effect of discouraging improvement in
the breed of race horses, is not that
preferable to sacrificing, endangering
moral improvement in our. breed of
men ? ThaV the question ! Minneso
ta Monthly ;
We are among thoso who have al
ways held that the exercises at Agri
cultural fairs should bo legitimately
applicable to agricultural pursuits, and
while personally opposed to nor3e ra
cing, have beon compelled to yield to
pressure and seeming expediency. In
new countries like ours, it has, here
tofore, Beemed necessary to resort to
every expedient to get out people
enough to pay expenses: there was
actually not sufficient real agricultural
Interest exercised to get up fairs and
run them on a purely agricultural ba
sis. The people of the county, terrl
tory or state came together as much
to meet each other annually, and have
a general good time, and exchange of
ideas as anything else. And, by-the-
by, this is one of the grand features of
our fairs, and should not be lost sight
of. We are glad, however, to see 1
growing disposition to make agricul
tural and mechanical fairs purely ag
ricullural and mechanical, and to dis
pense with every demoralizing feature
of a gambling tendency. We like as
well as any man living to see a trot
ting, pacing, running or walking race
by horses like to see tho grand, dis
play of "bone and sinew, n but when
gone into lor purely gambling pur
poses, and with the surroundings usu
al, we are free to say fairs are not tho
place for them.
That the region Wct-t of the Missis
sippi, is to be the great wheat grow
ing section of the world, is fast becom
ing apparent, Tills is clear to every
observer of ordinary intelligence, up
on the subject.
The soil, climate, extent of prairie,
facility with which machinery can be
emplayed in sowing and harvesting
the crop, cheapness of transportation
and nearness to market all combine
to show our statement true. Going
further, let us look at the figures. It
appears from the Reportof the Bureau
of Statistics, that the region West of
the Mississippi, in 1857, produced, in
rouud numbers, 2-3, 000,000 bushels of
wheat, or onc.tucvcnth of all the grain
in the Union ; in 1SCS the same Terri
tory produced, in round numbers, Co,
000,000, or onc-tldrdof all the grain in
the Union; an increase of two hun
dred and sixty percent.; yet, while
the "West has thus increased, the
amount Kastof the Mississippi has not
iu creased at all.
It is confessed that all the West
contains, no better wheat growing sec
tion than this part of the State of Mis
souri. The oot of production is less
here, while the average crop teas large
as anywhere else, and facilities for
market are superior. .
The average production per acrej in
this county, is twenty bushels and is
grown with very little expense. We
buy raw prairie and enclose it in the
spring; break it up in the summer;
sow the crop in the fall by machinery;
and, in .the ensuing summer, harvest
and thresh it by machinery, and mar
ket the result for cash and tho ' pro
ceeds will more than pay for farm im
provements and cost of production.
Some two years ugo, our good friend,
Gen. Pratt, of Linneus, byught a farm
and improved it at aa "expense of less
than six thousand dollars and sowed
it to wheat; last summer he sold the
crop of a single year, and received iu
cash twelve thor.and dollars!? We
know many another that has done as
. But the wheat growing capacity of
our county has never been tested.
Let us see, for a moment, what she is
equal to in the premises. We have in
round numbers, 430,(O0 acres of land
in this county, one-third of which, or
113,3o3, is timber; the balance, 287,000
rich, rolling prairie, admirably adap
ted to wheat growing. Suppose one
half of this last number, or 143,33."$, be
devoted to wheat growing, what then
would be the extent of production and
revenue? The amount of wheat
grown would be i!,SG'J,G0), which, at
1.50 per bushel the lowest possible
market rates would make $-l,o00,0)0
in round numbers.
What would be the results finan
cially cf such an operation? This
whole body of land can be bought at
Slo per acre, thus costing $2,14:),tj4 :
thus, by the first crop of wheat, ami
in a single year, the whole land
would be paid for, and a balance
of $1,150,000 left, cut of which . to pay
costs of production, interest on capi
tal, fcc. What is true of the whole
tract, is true in detail of every farm of
1C0 acres, more or loss, as the means
of the purchaser may enable him to
buy and farm. Mizzourl Messenger. '

all that have been recommended, discarding theiii

eral time before llartford, audi have never seen
any mildew on Its fnilt er on its large and thick, but
ivlaware shaped foliage. The ilavor of the fruit I
think superior to any other variety. You say in
vsir circular it Is a seedling of the Delaware'and
l)iana; I think the character of each or these varie
ties is quite distinguishable In the WalUr, particu
larly that of the Delaware. I alsd think it would
make a wine of hieh character. I have visited it
annually rlnce it flrstliore, siz years ago, three time
in Ulster Co., N. Y.J in a low valley, where the Isa
bella seldom ripens, and each time it was fnlly ri;e
in August. I have seen It each of the three pa.st sea
sons in Pougbkeepsie, ripening at the same time.
excepting last year, when the constant rains pre
vented a:l varieties irom maturing at ineir usual
time, but it perfected its fruit by the middle of s-p-tember.
The mir-iim of the last mentioned crop I
have seen and eaten, which were good. From itn
