t Botur Growth of FlanU Whleti
m Without Ufe.
It is often a difficult tnjbk to get vines
utartcd which have been planted near
dwellings. Tho plants atond still for
a long time in many coses. It is fre
quently the case that tho Boil la poor in
such locations. Escalations for the
cellar have hcen placed there, often of
Band or clay, in which no plant can
thrive. This must bo made right by
digging out a barrowful or two of this
rubblnh and filling In with god soil.
Another, and perhaps a greater reaRon
for this poor growth la that the build
ings keep away tho rain from certain
quarters, canning the soil to become so
dry that nothing can grow in it. When
this is the trouble it can be remedied
to a great extent by procuring vines
of Bomo length of stem, that they may
bo planted Homo diatnnco away from
tho wall. Tet It bo a Virginia creeper,
for Instance. Get a vino with a stem
two feet or more in length. Plant It
two feet from tho wall, opening a trench
from It to tho wall In which the shoots
are to bo laid nnd covered over vlth
earth. This will bring tho point of
tho vino close to tho wall, up which
it will noon run. The roofi being two
feet away from tho wall will meet with
mora moisturo than if closer to it, nnd
tho shoots which have been carried
along under grounil will make root in
time, pushing along tho growth fast.
In this way, with tho roots in good soil,
many a vino has been given n good stnrt,
which othenvlso would have grown Tint
Jittlo or have died out completely. It
is on excellent plan, and one not often
thoucrht of. rralrlo Former.
AcUfiuiliiKM Nobrimku Oiler to
tho Memo hcekcr.
The principal things to bo considered
by the farmer in neleoting n homo are
henlthfuliiCHS, productiveness of soil,
rainfall, irrigating fueilltii'P, and the
Roneral ndvuntUKoa of location. In all
of thoao, I beliuvo, Nobrunka atands at
the head of any atuto in tho union. It
Is the houlthiost of nil tho tnUf, tho
records nhoitig an avorigo tbath rato
of oiirht por 1000, while tho oastorn and
southern Mutes iivenign tnoro than
(wire that. Tho state is sottled by a
thrift), intelligent people, mostly com
ing from tho middle and eastern states.
It is dotted with schools and churches,
having a less proportion of illiterate
people than any othor state, tho per
centago being only 3 por cent, while tho
general avorago of tho United States
is more than 10. The soil is linear
passed in fertility, being composed of a
deep, rich lmm, underlaid with clay,
capable of absorbing an itumouBO
amount of wator, holding it in reserve'
for tho dry season, thereby boing able
to withstand long drouths.
A great injustico is dono Nebraska by
luo llllBe 'ol! cueiorn peopio nave in
regard to our rainfall. Tho truth is
i. n . w. . . ,
thut 1''"bUm " nml Con,rl NobraBhu not
only receive as much tnoisttiro as moat
., ., . . . , , ..
l" ,lurl,ll!rn sum's, uui uunng 1110
growing months of May, Juno and July
' actually more. Tho avorago rainfall of
tho United States signal sorvico roport
for the past twenty yeara at Omaha was
.'13 inches, Chicago 'M, Dl-h Moines 3U,
St. Louis .IS, Milwaukee '3'2, 1'ort Huron
H'J, Toledo 31, and St. Paul 27. It will
bo econ by this that tho avorago of these
eight great agricultural contors is
almost exactly that of Omaha, but wo,
having Ices snow or rain during the win
ter, gives us nioro moisturo when most
ntoiied. Tho fact in, our partial failure
of tho corn crops of tho past threo years
was due, not to long drouth, but to an
unuBual hot wind, which occurred just
at tho critical timo to blight the corn
blossom, something that has not oc
curred boforo since tho statu was settled
aud may not occur again in a hfo-time.
Iti tho western part of tho state, where
they got less ruin, u wonderful develop
ment of irrigation is taking placo. Five
years ago there was no irrigating in the
state but by Muy 1 there will bo over 1000
miles of main ditchos, and more than
1,000,000 acres of tho richest land uuder
irrigation. All agricultural authorities
agree thut no ucro of irrigated land is
equal to throe acres not irrigated. Such
being tho case, with a climato almost
perfect, with unlimited irrigation facili
ties, nothing can prevent Western Ne
braska from expsriencing a most won
derful period of prosperity.
Ono of tho groat advantages of No
bruslca is its adaptability to raising a di
versity of crops. Wheat, oats, rye, bar
ley, corn, hemp, flax, alfalfa, sugar
beetB, and ull kinds of vegetables, fruits
and berrios grow to perfection. Pro
vious to 1800, Nebraska raisod but littlo
winter whoat, but since the introduc
tion of tho now press drill our buccceb
has boon phenomenal, many fields pro
ducing fifty bushels to tho ucro. Outs
can always bo dopundod upon for a euro
crop. Lust yoar, Itelcls avoniging
eighty bushols to tho aero woro nu
merous. Nobrusku's groat staple is
corn, the seasons boing particularly
favorable to tho maturing of this crop,
frost raroly occurring until late in Ooto
bor, at which time it in safo. All kinds
of grasses grow in profusion. During
the last fow years much nttontion has
boon paid to tho raising of alfalfa,
Whon properly sown and cared for, it
has always been successful. The trouble
has always been in cutting too much
tho first year. Like all doop rooted
plants, it is hard to start, and it out too
ofton the first season, is liablo to wlntor
kill; but after tho first yoar it can be
cut three or four times par season and
stock turnod on in tho fall without
damage. Alfalfa is iuro to become, in
the near future, a groat source of
wealth to our atato, whon once thor
oughly rooted, lasting many yeara with
out replenishing, Thoso who know,
claim stock will eat alfalfa in prefer
ence to any other food. It is yery fat
tening, hogs gaining as rapidly aa when
fod on corn, Considering its immonso
yield, it is without doubt the mo6t profit
able field crop a farmer can raiso. But
a short timo ago tho boet sugar industry
began to be discussed in this country.
After thorough investigation it was
found the soil and climate of the Platte
and Blkhorn valloys were perfectly
adaptod to tho raising of tho beets,
boing fully equal to either Germany or
Tho difficulty bos boon, so far, to get
capital to invest in tho expensive
plants herototoro necessary for tho
manufacture of sugar; but, by tho now
process of evaporation, it is now poiei
ble to build a number of evaporating
plants throughout the state at small
cost. These valleys, spokon of above,
could be divided into 100 dis
tricts, and an evaporation plant built
in oach district, so that no farmer need
haul his beota more than five or six
miles. Then by the orection of ten lurgo
refineries at central points, tho product
could bo convorted into granulated su
gar at n minimum cost. It is claimed
by tho inventor of tho new ovaporating
process, that the crudo sugar produced
contains 02 per cent of pure granulated
sugar; that 525,000 will build a plant
equal in capacity to tho Norfolk or.
Orand Island factories, which cost be-
twoen.T00,000and $400,000 oach. Th
United Statoa import moro than I100
000,000 worth of auar each oar, and I
firmly bolievo that in ton ypara Nebraska
will supply this country with all tho
augBr they can tine, theroby not only
making it tho richest agricultural stato
in tho union, but saving thin great drain
on our national wealth, by ketplng this
Immense rovenno at home; a roventm
which in tea jears would pay tho ontiro
bonded debt of tho nation.
Another important industry which in
bound to develop rapidly la tho raising
of chicory. Alroatly ono largo factory
for its proparation has boon erected, and
others will follow. It ia the principal
crop of a largo community noar O'Neill,
whoro tho factory ia located. The do.
mand for chicory is Incronping. Ita
roota, whon dried and ground, aro mixed
with coffee, to which it ailde strongth
and color, ia healthy, and not objection
able, and is uml extonsively by hotels
aud public Institutions. All parts above
tho roots mako good foddnr, boing greed
ily devoured by cattle.
Tho raising of hemp and flax
ia also receiving attention. Omaha
has ono of tho largest olovatorB
and mills In the country for hniulling
tho soeds and manufacturing, onand oil",
cako. Fremont also haa a mill for tho
miinufnoturo of tho fibre, mostly into
Wo might continue without limit
to diecUHs separately our numerous
products; buIIIco it to suy that any crop
raised in tho northern Rtntea can bo
profitably grown in Nebraska. It ia
one ot tho greatest stock-raising states.
A climato healthy for man !b
healthy for beast. Disease among stojk
is almost unknown. South Omaha is
tbo third largest meat packing contur in
the world. Wo hnvo tho land, tho sun
Bhino, and the rain; wnnt wo want now
is industrious farmurs to develop our
groat natural resources Wo must stop
trying to cultivate whole fectiotiB ua ono
farm. Thoro aro milliona of acres of
choice land in Nebraska that hnvo novor
been plowed. Tliero aro also millions of
acres only half cultivated. Cut our
largo farms into eighty ucro tractc;
each will support in luxury u family of
five, If cultivated as it hIiuiiKI bo. If tho
farmers ot tho crowded east only know
of tho wonderful ndvatitngcH of uur
atato, thoy would leave tho atumps and
fitonou uml cluy, and como whoio the
working of tho soft, rich soil is moro ot

AN OBJECT LESSON.
FmntDK Wound Should lie Protected
from Moisture and Air.
Tho throo Bkctchca herewith show
the successive stages ot tho wound in
flicted in sawing off a big branch from
a treo and ncgleotlng to properly cover
the exposed wood from the action of tho
weather. Fig. 1 shows the freshly
znude wound. In Fig. 2 la wen the first
effect of the "weathering" action of sun
and wind. Seasoning craolcB open the
wood and permit the cntranco of water
at every rain. It it then only a question
of timo until tho result aliown in Fig.
3 Ih reached a hollow trunk that ulti
mately falls before a severe wind. Tho
moral is obvious. Cover such pruning
wounds so that all air and moisturo
may bo excluded, and tills can only bo
dono by painting tho exposed wood
with Bomo durable and firmly ndhcalvo
substance lead paint- being perhaps
licst of all. Wax Boon peels off, while
mechanical covers of wood or tin rarely
make o tight joint. Orango Judd
FoUih for Orchard.
Muriate of potash may bo applied on
applo orchards at the rato of 200 to 300
pounds per acre, preferably in tho
spring of tho year after tho orchards
aro plowed and beforo they aro culti
vated. If it la not proposed to plow
them this spring, theiibow broadcast as
coon aa tho ground is in condition to
work and cultivate most thoroughly,
oven though there may be somo grass,
with u cutaway harrow off in any way
which will incorporate tho potash with
tho Burfaco soil. In order to get tho
best results tho orchard should bo kept
cultivated up to about tho middle of
July, when crimson clover nt tho rate
of ten pounds per ncro might be sown
nnd cultivated in and tho ground
rolled. Country Gcntlomau.
