If cottonseed meal costs delivered
$35 n ton, each pound of digestible
protein will cost loss than 4V6 cents.
If corn Ib worth $25 a ton, each pound
of protein will cost about 16 cents a
pounu. in other words, a pound of
protein in corn will cost nearly four
times as much as a pound of protein
in cottonseed meal. ThiB clearly
shows that tho dairy farmer will lose
money If ho purchases corn to feed
his cows, providing, of course, that
cottonseed meal Is available. But if
cottonseed meal 1b not available other
feeding stuffs can bo had. Tho buyer
of grain feeds should consider his
purchase In thU light.
The successful marketing of vege
tables, beyond doubt, is the most se
rious question of all for commercial
growers. In many instances it 1b ap
parently impossible to make ship
ments to the city and realize a fair
profit This condition is duo to high
freight or express charges, unscrupu
lous dealers and too many middle
men. There Is too much difference bo
tweon tho price- received by tho pro
ducer and that paid by tho consumer,
nnd this 1b tho primary cause of tho
high cost of living in the large cltleB.
Winter Feed for Oeeie.
I never feed any apodal grcon food
except cabbage to my breeding geese
during tho wlntor. But I rnlso field
corn and feed that, allowing tho geese
the range except when thero la snow
on the ground, says a writer In an ex
change. I have tried various fn0ri
.but never have found any nd vantage
ovor corn, ine pasiuro is, or course,
best of all for geese, since the bird's
will care for themselves.
Profit In Alfalfa.
One middle west seed company pur
chased recently 700 bushels of alfalfa
need. The seed, uncleaned, sold for
$8.50 the bushel, and was Bold by Ste
ven Heel of Shawnee, Okla., who re
ceived $6,060 tor the 700 bushels.
Prevent Washing of Soils. .
On billy lands great difficulty is ex
perienced In preventing washing by
heavy fall and winter rains. The use
of cover crops, therefore, becomes Im
perative on euch lands If clean cul
ture Is to bo practiced In the summer.
Size of Farms.
Our farms aro decreasing in size,
the average number of acres In farms
having decreased from 146 In 1900 to
138 In 1910.

SELECTING GOOD SEED CORN
Little Practice Will Enable One to
Become Quick and Reliable Judge
Points to Study.
With n llttlo practice ono can be
como u quick nml reliable judge of an
ear of corn suitable for Feed. Hut tt
will be necessary to study such points
as triipness to t pe, shape of ears, eolol
of kernels, tips and butts of ears, unl'
fortuity of kernels, shape of kernels,
spaco between kernels and tho pet
cent, of grain to the cob. Briefly It
should be stnted that tho rows of ker
nels should bo straight, running from
butt to tip; tho kernels w-odgoshuped,
thus Insuring a large per cent, of tho
corn on tho cob. Tho furrows, or
the space between tho kernels, should
ho narrow; the gtnins deep, tho colt
comparatively small. Tho color of tho
kernels should bo uniform, having no
Indication of a mixed vnrlety. All cars
that show Immaturity or rotted ker
nels should bo eliminated, and espe
cial enro should be tnken to select
ears with largo gprms. Tho fact should
bo borne In mind that n largo yield
requires oars that aro well tilled and
as few nubbins and barren stalks as
possible. It costs as much to produce
nubbins as It docs good ears, nnd or
dinarily 20 bushels to tho aero will
cost as much work ami other expense
nB 10, hence tho economy of Increas
ing the yield.
