Contributions to thia Col u ma are re-iuseted
from tie practical farmers of the county. ',:
-a In opening; a farmery's column in this
paper, we do not mean to make it a mere
collection of receipt?, new machines, or
patent ways &F raiding grain & stock
.without work. - It is intended to make
it a vehicle of valuble information, to the
practical working farmer of to day. We
would like to make it & source of plea?
ant chat and intcrchJftge of experiences
among neighbors, if it can Le done." Of
course we shall Le oo.ige J to use reprint
EomewLat, and shall -in the coarse of
time, no doubt, tell rou horr "to care
a baulky horse" in a thousand wayS,"
and givo many a valuable receipt for rais
ing cai)ne generally. Each reader must
select those that meets his case. Furth
er than this, we should like to make the
column as nearly original as possible,
and shall contribute each week one artiti
cle at least, toward that end.
; When younger and in perfect physical
health, the sharp,' fierce, pat pat of a
good trotter's hoofs on the hard track;
the whirr of the sulky wheelj, and the
"Aa go long " of the driver was better
music to our ears than the best piano in
Cass county could make. ..-.' - '
Bad health; hard work, want of time,
and a shortness in the lining of our pock
et book, in sympathy withtherest of yon
have prevented us for some years from
pulling the ribbons over anything better
than ''old Tom," the farm horsey -or
anything'fastcf UiarTa' lively going mud
turtle after a fchower, - f -. ,
All thi3 does not prevent us from feel
ing interrested in stock matters and Iike
ing a good horse just a littlo bit letter
than any other animal on the farm. Thus
is not what we set out to say though,
and the boys are yelling .Vcopy," so
we must cut it short. The raising of
blooded hordes is not a busines we weald
advise many people to enter into; because
it takes money, requires rat care and
knowledge of the principles of breeding,
and a certain amount of intuitive percep
tion of what is best, that not every 'one
is gifted with; but for those wbohae
the means and the taste, no better spot
of earth xan be uud iLan in this state.
A firm dry soil, good pasturage, cheap
means of raising grain and feed, with
water ia"abunJance, give nslidvantages
that no other state can excel. We hope
and believe that the time will come when
Nebraska Stu i Farms" will be a3 noted
and produce as famous stock as ever old
Kentucky or any .other State could boast
Meanwhile much can be done on a
emaller scale, lu pays to raisa good
etock. It costs more to raL-e a horse
with some blood, than a ' cold blooded
cne. In our iioa soli, farmers do not
neeJ"u7ay hcrteo for their work, and by
breeding a better sort you etand a chance
of getting a colt every vo-.f and then that
will net you a gocd round sum. '
WelyiTdliad a bad, late, wet spring,
of that there is no doubt. Many farmers
are not done planting corn yet, and it f i
to be feared that many will not be able
to plant at all. i'ct if it 13- any encour
agement to us to"know that we are not
alonaTn the matter, we can find plenty
of companions by examining the filo of
our agricultural papers thrJuhout the
east. .'Nebraska Iooni3 up strong, 'as be-,
ins in a better fix, and taking it all
around, as farmers generally do, ashfiv
ing less damaging weather than any
other State of which we take notice.
For instance : from the jYeic- Yorker, we
learn that in N. J., it is cold . and t blus
tering Winter wheat and Rye; nearly.
ruined.""In Pennsylvania on the 3d of
May, it wa3 frosty, raia fallin' all the
time; poor crops all over the country;
grass not started and' fodder all gone,
VOut door business all stopped" iy9
one correspondent. On"May otb, in-N.
Y. State, they had heavy frost and fall
of snow. Ih'MIchigan Spring Is report
ed very backward, wheat badly winter
kiiled. Wisconsin, Illinois Vermont
everywhere the reports are cioro un
favorable than the wor.twe "could possi
bly say lofour'owErS tat e. On the 13th
frost is reported not yet out. of. j tho
ground in N. Y. State." "
Our Small grains all look finely, and it
may confidently be predicted that if we
have a good wheat harvest, as it now
seems we shall, our farmers need have
no fear of a poor market The unfail
ing report of tho winter wheat crop
elsewhere i3 bad, and Nebraska may
have to furnish her bibter States with the
new Spring article.
For the month preceding the publica
tion cf this number of the Land Agent,
there has been ' 770 settlers passed
through our city, nearly all of them with
their families, and household goods,
seeking home3 in our State. They are
generally well provided for settling, hav
ing their icaws, pigi and chickens, as
well a3 plows, cultivator, reaping and
mowing machines. Wo noticed one
company had 463 head of cows and bulls,
not counting tho young calves and an
other that had 40 head of young horses,
from one to three year3 old ; end as we
write a company of seven teams, with
families have driven into the city, hav
ing 50 head of cows and calves, and all
ready to stick thjir stake when they find
a vacant tract of land. Thrice welcome
are these hearty til!er3 of the soil.
They will reap an abundant reward for
their labors, and will call the day
"blessed," that first welcomed them to
the "Antelope". State. "Sow and yo
shall reap': an abundant harvest.
