Not bo many yearn back It was the de
light of the granger and tho para
grapher alike to poko gentle fun at tb(
"scientific farmer." As a patron of hus
bandry ho was alleged to bo Id doubt
:oncornlng the proper timo to plant en

f his wisdom a process for tho dehorn
ing of hydraulic rams, says the New
York Mall and Express.
Wo have heard less of these pleasan
tries as the years have added proof ol
tho practical adantage accruing to the
farmer from the scientific Investiga
tions carried on ejstcniatk'ally by tin
government or sporadically by tin
ihemlst and amateur of agriculture
Tho latest and most important result ol
this activity Is brlrlly announced by
Prof. I. O. Holi!rn, of the Amos nerl

throughout Iowa hao listened to till!

"convince! tint for onco a professor In
in agricultural collego has a reform
that Is thoroughly practical."
To find out how much the farmers ol
tho state wero annually losing by not
planting corn properly, Prof. Holden
last year sent 1,000 litters to nil parts
of Iowa asking tho number of stalkn in
pnch hill In cornfields. Ho found that
tho "stand" was but 75 per cent, of w hat
ho had demonstrated will pioduco the
largest yield, In making hln tables he
counted cither three or four stalks as
a 100 per cent, stand. For ten years the
average yield of corn in Iowa has bean
approximately 35 bushels to tho acre.

Pi of. Holden put his theory to the
test last year, planting several thou
sand acres with seed sorted by hand and
through planters carefully adjusted to
drop the proper cumber of kernels.
Previous! the best yield was 58 bushels
an acre. Last year the average yield
was 72 bushels. Of the gain, 80 per cent,
is estimated to bo due to tho stand and
20 per cent, to tho superior germinating
power of the seed. In the experimental
fields under Prof. Holden's control the
yield has never been less than (0 bush
els an acre since 1896.

Last year the Bwlss government gave
the cantons 10,000 francs ($1,930) for
the destruction of noxious animals. Tho
sum spont in the cantons for this pur
pose was 4,000 franca ($772). Seventy
two otters, 188 heronB and 303 crows
were destroyed. In tho list published
some years before we see the kingfisher,
the water blackbird, tbo grebe and the
fish eagle, but It would appear that these
birds are now extinct In Switzerland.
