Tlio gioutost wasto in any single Ih
dtistiy in tills country U ni.ide with
llii? corn crop. The grain of the
hiiUuhI corn cinp of the United States
it worth on the far ins one ami a htilf
billion dollars. In a ripe corn plant
fit) peicent of tho feed vulue is con
tained In the kernels and II) per cent
in tho stalk and leaves. With the
grniu worth one and a half billion
dollars, the feed value of the test of
the crop is a billion dollars. At least
00 percent of the feed valuo of the
stalk is lost under the present system
of fa mi management iivwaste with
this ci op alone of almost a billion
dollath j tiii ly. No other business hut
fanning could statid such an enormous
In the New England and the Middle
States most of the stalks tiro saved as
fodder, and there Hro many lilos, but
with the damage from weathering,
the waste luhandling and thu loss lu
digest iblllty from drying, the farmers
are very far from utilizing the full
feed value of the coin stalk. In the
coin belt, wheie the bulk of the orop
is raised, comparatively few cornjgrow
eib harvest the stalks, and the only re
turns most of them secure from the
forage is by pasturing the dead stalks
iu the cold and storms ot winter.
Frequently the death of stock past
urcd in the stalk fields makes a loss
that far exceeds the returns from the
Contrast this waste by the corn grow
er with the practices of larKe business
organizations. For years the great
packing houses have sold dressed meat
for less than they have paid for the
live weight of the animals.
Yet every year these packing houses
return millions of dollars profit be
cause they utilize to the fullest extent
the value of their by-products. The
Standard Oil Company takes crude oil
into its refining plants, puts it through
costly processes, using apparatus that
requires an outlay of millions, pays
the freight and delivers the kerosene
and gasoline direct to consumers at s
lower rate than is asked for mineral
water, where the only expense is to
run the water through a pipe from tbe
spring into a bottle. At tbe lame
time the corn grower are wasting
most of 40 per cent of the feed value
of over one hundred million acres of
The silo provides the corn grower
with the means for utilizing tbe larg
estproportlon of the feed value of bis
entire crop, grain and forage. Tbe
whole crop can be stored economically
in the silo in compact form. Tbe silage
can be kept for days, months or years,
or feeding may begin as soon as filling
the silo is completed. The silo can be
filled in good weather, when it is rain
ing, or iu times of extreme drouth and
hot winds. Silage is good fed, dally,
both in winter and summer. When
grass is ready in the spring, the feed
that remains in the silo onn be covered
and will keep well until needed when
the summer drouth comes, Silage
furnishes a green, succulent, appetis
ing feed through the winter, the 6ame
as grass through the summer It
keeps the animal's system iu as good
condition as when the stock is on good
pasture, and feeds given with it are
I better digested.
Corn makes the best silage, Katllr
corn, Mito and sorghum follow, their
valuo being iu the order mentioned,
(Jreen pea-vlncs, husks and cobs from
the canning factories make good ma
terial to put in the silo, hi continuous
rainy weather alfalfa, clover nud other
hay crops may bo saved In tho silo.
The vast dry farming sections of the
Southwest will bo as thickly settled
with comfortable farm homes as is the
northern corn belt whenever stock
raising, drouth-resistant forage crops
and tbe silo are adopted, instead of ex
clusive grain farming. Every live

True Progressivism
Tho significantly progressive plank
in the state democratic platform is
tlie 0110 demanding the investigation
by congress of the conduct of Judge
Wright of Washington for his con
tempt pioceedlngs against Uoiupers
and Mitchell. This little federal ap
pointee, who has a court in the city of
Washington, took jurisdiction of n
suit Mguinst (lumpers and Mitchell and
punished them for contempt by giving
them a peat's imprisonment iu jail,
tils conduct was outrageous, but no
political party took any action on the
matter, and ,fiee speech and n free
press found itself stifled when the
laboiers of this countiy undertook to
express their opinions.
lini naul McNeuy ,of thlsclty, bi ought
the uuittei befoio tho last democratic
convention at lir.iud Island, and secur
ed the adoption of a lesolutlnn in
structing congi ess to investigate the
action ot this Utile tyrannical judge
with a view to his impeachment.
Iu Monday's Dee, a special from
Washington reports interviews with
Cougio-sman Stephens, Magnire and
Lobcck, lu which they my they will
obey the command of tho party iu this
state and investigate and, if proper,
impeach Judge Wilght.
This, to our mind, is much the big
gest thing accomplished in the Grand
Island convention, ami the Chief feels
pi olid that it was a Webster County
man who brought this mutter before
the convention. Mr. MoXeny is some
times called u re-actionary by those
who do not know' the mcsulng uf the
large words they use, but his action,
iu this one instance, entitles him to a
front seat among the most progiesslve
men in politics to-day.
We venture to piophcsy that this
action of Judge Wrights will bo the
last of lie kind iu Amerleau courts
and to tho Grand Island convention
and Mr. McNeuy will be due the termi
nation of this arbitrary conduct on
.the part of these judicial pickaninnies.
