cor.x axd potatoes ror. feed.
A writer ia the Hearth and Home,
making calculations ui to the compar
ative value of corn and potatoes for
feeding purposes, concludes that one
bushel of corn is worth four of pota
toes; that the corn possesses eighty
per cent of nutritive matter, and the
potatoes but twenty-seven per cent.
The writer does not state whether he
caleulatess the potato raw or cooked.
Raw, we presume. Wo think he
xnafcea the difference too great. The
per cent, of raw potatoes Is, perhaps,
not far out of the way. We doubt,
however, If corn ia entitled to the
credit of eighty per cent. Cooked
, potatoes contain a greater per cent, of
nutriment than twenty-seven, and no
one thould feed raw potatoes. We
fed cooked potatoes liberally the past
' fall, and was well pleased with the
result. We think that in cooked po
tatoes, Uth a fair proportion of corn
meal mixed, there is but little, if any
difference bctwen such feed and corn
We are glad to see that "Agricul
tural D-artments In newspapers are
retting quite fashionable in all parts
of the country. We mean that more
than ordinary attention is being pal
to this feature of the local newspaper,
From "time immemorial" many local
papers have had a column or two se
lected matter under the head "Agri
cultural." But of late somebody has
charge of these columns, and friends
and patrons write furnish original
matter peculiar to the immediate lo

we are not sure but that if all loca

more good would grow out of it than

disparaging agricultural papers by any

without them.' We mean to say,
however, that we think that if every

Raspberries. ttr. Aldrich had cul
tivated the common wild varieties
found growing in Nebraska with great
success; finds the quality improved
by cultivation ; the variety is of the
Black Cap order ; finds the cultivation
profitable and recommends it; pre
sented specimens dried which were

considerable attention to this Small

Mr. Bratton has had good success
with Gooseberries. Has an English
variety, for which he has no name ;
is oblong In shape; fine berry and
Qrapcs. Mr. Masters had not had
much experience except with the older
varieties, Catawba and Isabella.
Thought this country adopted to grape
growing, especially on high grounds.
Mr. Bratton had grown the Cataw
ba, Isabella and Concord very success
fully; found the two former a little
Mr. Furnas Is said by his neigh
bors to have "Grape on the brain."
Has been growing grapes in Nebras
ka for fourteen years. Finds Concord,
Clinton, Delaware, Ives' Hartford
Prolific, Norton's Virginia, Iona and
Israella perfectly hardy. Is growing
the Martha, Walter, Rogers' and Ar
nold's Hybrids Eumelan and Creve-
ling, and finds vines perfectly hardy ;
has not yet fruited them. Has found
the Isabella and Catawba both in
clined to be tender, and need winter
covering. Believes the bluff lands in
Nebraska admirably adapted to Grape
Clicrries. All present were of the
opinion that the Early Richmond was
about the only valuable variety for
this region, , . ' ;
Currants. But few have tried other
varieties than the Red and White
Dutch. They are hardy, prolific, and
The Society here indulged in a gen
eral and desultory conversation on the
subject of timber planting; timber
belts for protection of orchards, and
tree planting in general.
Mr. Daily Had not much experi
ence in tree planting, but what he had
wari anted him him in advocating
planting tree3 as protection to young
Mr. Walker Brought ten thousand
fruit trees to Nebraska ; sold most of
them to those he thought more ex
perienced in planting. Planted prin
cipally on Northern Slope. Since
trees came into beariner. those less
protected seemed to bear better than
others more favored in these respects.
Some trees he brought from Lone:
sland had done well. Knew but lit
tle about transplanting. What bet
planted however, done well. Bald
win, Rhode Island, Greening, Early
larvest, Rambo, Northern Spy and
Romanite have born well and given
satisfaction. His neighbor, Mr. Grif-
flng, had been successful in tree grow-
ng. His fruit trees were protected by
Dr. McPhersoa ha3 experimented
to some extent in planting both Fruit
and Forest trees. Thirteen years a:ro
brought some thousand trees Into this
county and planted them. Some are
growing and doing well. Those do
ing best were planted on the South
side cf a yellow locust timber belt on
high ground. Thinks whid breaks
have a decided influence on the cli
mate. Those who have planted fruit
trees In our bluffs, have been well paid
for their labor. Has found the Pear
particularly healthy- and prolific.
Much of failure in tree planting is at
tributable to carleesness in planting
and care after planting; trees and
cattle will not gro together.
Dr. Hclliday wt.3 on the 'Tlatte
urchasc," la Missouri, ia aa early
day. All our fruit came from other
counties where soil was more corn-
met. Agrees with Dr. McPherson
that success in fruit growing depeadj
much on the soil. High locations are
more favorable than low; in fact,
bottom land is not to be relied on for
Mr. Scott finds that all he has tried,
either Fruit or Forest trees, have done
well, when well treated. Allowed
oats sowed among some of his trees
one season ; will not permit it again.
Is opposed to root pruning; it may
bring the tree into earlier bearing,
but will shorten the life of the tree.
Mr. Hollingshead attributes much
of failures In Fruit tree planting to
bad condition of trees when received;
irresponsible tree peddlers; earless
exposure of roots to wind and sun.
Would advise early spring planting,
and mulch plentifully : plant imme
diately after breaking up the ground,
while it 13 fresh. This course and
my experience will warrant nine-
tenths of the trees to grow. Peach
trees in Pawnee county have borne
well, particularly so an the high
grounds. My orchard is a North-wes
tern slope. My trees are all healthy.
Came to Nebraska in 18G1. Settlers
all told me could not raise fruit. Had
perfect confidence from the start;
planted and have been successful. All
who have done likewise, have been
Mr. Daily said Mr. Sage, of Nemaha
county, planted an orchard eight or
ten years ago, on sod land next year
after turning over, then cultivated un
til within two years. His orchard
done well, and last year turned out a
bountiful crop. His-neighbor, Dr.
Neal, bad transplanted trees fourteen
years old, and they did well ; bore the
second year from transplanting.
Mr. Hollingshead would set trees a
rod apart, or double that distance and
plant peach trees between. In this
country trees need to be planted close
together. Would prefer two year old
trees to plant. Never stake trees I
Mr. Furnas plants peach trees ten
feet apart, and cuts out alternate trees
as the space is required ; apple trees
he plants twenty feet apart and peach
trees between each ; the peach will be
past its prime by the time tho apple
trees require the space ; cuts out the
peach and uses for fuel ; finds peach
wood excellent fuel. Flants grapes
twelve and fourteen feet apart, and
cultivates Currants, Gooseberries and
Strawberries between, until space is
required. Six and eight Jeet is too
close for grapes. They will need all
of twelve and fourteen feet in a very
few years. Heads all fruit trees low,
as near the ground as possible.
Mr. Scott asked how about pruning
growing trees; don't we as a rule,
prune too much?
Mr. Hollingshead seldom prunes
after the tree is under way growing
only when limbs interfere, or shape of
top goes unpardonably astray.
Mr. Masters is opposed to much pru
ning; thinks there ha3 been too much
of it done
Mr. Beaver would plant wind breaks
first on the South ; second on the wes
and third on the north. . ,
Mr. Masters favors wind breaks a3
protection for orchards ; ought not to
be too close the trees however ; in this
way force of wind is broken before I
reaches fruit trees, and does not inter
fere with free circulation of moderate
breezes which are essential. Referred
to Bayard Taylor's reference to two
timber Islands ; thinks our rains are
on the increase, and thinks there is a
reason for it which we ought to under
stanu ; minks it is oecause we are
planting trees; thinks rains follow
Deits oi timoer as wen as water cour
ses; thinks the fruit belt or season
changes as seasons vary.
Mr. Wheeler wanted the narative
of experience as to best sites for or
chard planting. Much good wil
grow out or sucu miormation. if we
could have had the information ten
years ago, we can now give others, we
would be wiser. Let us give others
the benefit of our experience.
Hollingshead On high, rolling,
well drained ground; never low.
North or North-west slope prefered.
Beaver finds more perfect trees on
north slope ; has his eye on an orchard
thus situated numbering two hundred
trees, all healthy and sound ; highest
point In the county ; north slope; a
man who two years ago would not
plant a tree, now will plant all he can.
He feels confident he will raise all the
Peaches he wants in Richardson
Wheeler said best orchards In Cass
slopes south and west ; some breaks
north and east. Mills county, Iowa,
highest point of lands did best some
times best fruit. In Michigan he
wanted east and south.
Masters said Drapers' orchard in
Otoe county mostly south. ,
Wheeler said in valleys trees have
not done well.
Daily has experience as to location ;
put out200on botton, 50 on high land.
Only one or two trees were living on
bottom ; on high land great majority
living and doing well.
Wheeler was satisfied high ground
Mr. Masters My own orchard is on
high ground, sloping some in all di
rections ; lost most trees on north
slope. Peach orchard slopes North
east ; six years ago had a good crop of
peaches; none at bottom of slope; in
creased to top of slope.
Scott planted three Baldwin trees
in a creek bottom in 18C1 ; gathered 27
bushels applet this season, and bore
well last year. This about six feet
above Missouri river bottom Im
proved. Scott ha3 fine luck with Pears.
Masters has good luck with Apricots.
Mr. Walker think3 we are not in the
best fruit belt.
Mr. Masters will tell what fruit grow
ers have done in his vicinity. Mr.
Shephard had 0000 bushels apples,
Armstrong had 150 bushels, Morton
over 2 JO, Draper 300, Masters had SCO,
Gillmore 200, everybody had more or
legs, Lowe 500, Redfleld 150, Cassell,
Harmon, Shellenberger, good bearing
orchards. Apple crop worth $4000
Mr. Wheeler, of Cass, said Perry
Walker had 2000 bushels apples ; sold
at $2 per bushel.
The Society did not get near through
with business it should have transac
ted. It adjourned feeling that a good
beginning had been made.
It wa3 decided to hold a Horticul
tural Exhibition sometime next year,
to be governed somewhat by tho fruit
prospects of the coming year; the
time rind place to be hereafter e greed
upon by the Executive Board.
