Home.Grown Sugar Ueet Seed.
A bulletin a ! the UnlttJd Stntes De.
partmont or Agrlculluro says :
It Is bolloved that the nverago sugar
content of beets In this counlry can
he Increased 2 to 3 per cent when wo
uhall haye developed a higher straIn
of beets through home.grown aeed. '
On account of the hlghor vitality of
the germ. these experlmonts hullcato
that wo shall have a race at beets
moro vigorous from the start.
In the 11roductlon of beets for a , fac.
lor . , the vHallt . of the Eeed as shown
b ' germInation Is an Important factor.
It Is the first evidence of the probable
ylold of the crop that the grower 1001\0
for. Evorythlng depends upon the
stand. It is desired that a beet sha11
fill every place in the row provided
for It. It Is evident that If every

tured at the harvest. If the rows are
18 inches apart and the beets stand 8
Inches apart In the row. there will be
312 beets to the row , and 138 2.3 rows
to the acre. If every beet Is In Hs
place there wl1l be 43,264 beets to 'iho
acre. If these beets average ono
pound , there will be 43,264 pounds to
the acre , cQual to 21.63 tons. If the
! Jeets average two pounds , which Is
moro nearly the usual size , wo will
have 43.26 tons per acre. ThIs shows
the posslblo tonnage per acre when
a11 conditions are favorable and we
have a perfect stand. Vitality ot seed
Is n. strong factor . in reaching this

and send out their laterals qulcltl ) . ;
this enables them to entrench them.
selves early In the soil. Plants arc
111m animals. Vigor in youth promIses -
Ises much for healthful maturity.
Strong vitallt ) ' or germinating power
of the seed Indicates this early vigor ,
whIch wHl enable the plants to with.
stand diseases. pests and drougbt.
The numJer of sprouting germs In a
given number of beet balls and the
' 11101' and rapidity ot germination are
the tests of this vItamy. Home.grown
seed has shown a hlghor germinating
power In It shorter tlmo than thoSE-
selected from ordinary imported seed.
From these facts It would appear that
we are entll1ed to antlcipato It hlghor
) 'ield of beets from the use of homo.
grown hIghly developed ! Jeet seed.
Thi ! extraction of refined eUlar in
this country averages 11 11er cent ,
or 220 pounds at refined sugar to a
ton of beets. The faclory pa's the
farmer for this SUlar $2.27 per hundredweight -
dredweight while it is still in the
beet. If tht ) factory could extract 13
per cent o ! sugar on account of our
perfecting a strain at beets with
higher sugar content and purity
through hbme-grown seed , a ton of
beets would yield 40 pounds moro sugar -
gar , worth at the factory $1.80. Thl
alone would give the factor36 POl'
cent profit upon the Inveslment ot $5
per ton for beets , This scems q lto
possible. Homegrown seed ef.
fers t.ho most encouraging prospect of
Insuring the future growlh and pros.
perlty of the beet sugar industry.
Phosphorus In Steamed Bon Meal.
In a recent ta11e with Professor
Hopltlns of the University of lllinols ,
! I. representative of the Farmers' Re.
vlow learned that the cheapest form
In which to purchase phosphorus Is In
the form of steamed bono meal ; that
is , for early results. It mar bo the
cheapest In any compctltlon. but wo
have ) 'et much to learn about the
phosphate in unacldulated phoSIJhato
roclt. That Professor Hopldns Is
right wo have every reason to bellevo.
HiB opinion is coincided In by no less
an authority than Professor Charles
E. Thorne of the Ohio Experiment
Station. That gentleman does not
hesltato to declare that steamed bono
meal furnishes the cheapest and most
Ilval1ablo form of phosphorus that can
be obtained. Ho further says that except -
cept for experimental purposes the
Ohio slatlon has abandoned tbelse of
the acldulatCtl goods. Dy actual ex.
poriment it was found that the clover-
producing fields were Injured by the
constant application o ! the acldulatod
fertilizers. The sulphurlc acid broulht
into the soil manltested itself in bar-
len spots in the clover field. and these
spots grow tram year to year as more
terU1Izor was applied. Steamed bono
menl has the advantage over raw
bono meal In that the nitrogen has
been mostly talten out ot the steamed
nrtlcle and therefore docs not have to
! Jo paid tor. This makes the steamcl (
bono meal a cheaper : : ourco of phos-

Deliver Cream Orten.
Reports trom th centralized cream-
gathering plantu IndIcate that there 19
a good deal o ! trouble about t.ho ae.
I curing of cream In good condition.
The farmers In many pln.ces now have
hand separators. and in others tollow
uio old practice of setting Ule ml1lc ,
t get the cream. 'fhey are too busy
In the summer time to drive to the
rnllroal1 depot oftener than they have
lo , nn'd this means that in some cases
the cream 15 a. week old before II Is
forwarded. The butter malwrs de
clare that It Is next to Imposslblo te.
moIeo Eood buller out of this crer.m , or
\\'llfm it Is mixed with the other m1l1e ,
as It usually Is. 'rho llroblem is n
hard ono and It cannot be solved by
any short method. It Is , ot course ,
, advisable to have the farmers deliver
: their cream as often as' possible , but a
farmer w1ll hardly mnlto a trip to
town it that trIp is going to , cost him
more for 10B ! In his harvests than the
profits of the cream will amount to.
rt Is ovldent that we must depend on
a little Improvement h < : re and a little
Improvement t.hore. With the proper
fac111l1es and with ster111zatlon o [
cream on the farm it should be
brought Into a condition where It can
be kellt for a few da 's without Injury
to it. If Mr. Gurler can send mll1t
from IllInois to Franco and have It
nrri vo' there sweet after 17 days , cer.
talnly our farmers can lteep their
cream in such good condItion that It
w111 be fit to maltO butter from It few
days after It is talwn f om the mll1e.
We are not advocating few deliveries
of cream , but lmow that there are
many of our farmers so situated that
they will not attempt to deliver cream
every day , either in summer or wlri.
Some Uses or Skimmlll : .
That sldmm111e Is a useful feed for
a11 It1nds of farm anlml.Js Is an established -
lished fact. It pa's better , however ,
to fecd It to the young animals than
to old ones , though the latter usa It
to fairly good advantage. The young
Dnes have stomachs so weU adapted
to usIng sltlmml1l. that they can get
more out of it with less expenditure
of dlgesllve energy than any others.
A good many experiments haie
! Jeen made with it from Ume 10 time ,
by the way of using It as n. fopd foe
mntlro farm animals. Hero and lhera
are men that have fed It to their
milch cows. and In the' absence a !
othcr anImals to consume It this Is a
good use to mal\Q of It. 'fhe value In
such a case depends on the
price that can be obtained for It. In
the case of using It for cow feed It
will bo found necessary to l\Oep It
sweet tll1 50 used.
Colts and even mature horses have
! Jeen fed on sl.immillt. Ono man
claims that hIs horses came to 1I1al
mille and that less grain was consumed -
sumed after the milk belan to be fed.
We can easily believe this. The millt I
contains a good amount of protein' '
and thIs o ! course goes to build up
the museles nnd make protein from
grain less necossary.
On n11 at our farms the use or slelm-
mll1e for chlGlten feeding Is tlOW recognized -
nized , and lIttle urging Is necessary
to induce the careful poultry raiser
to feed the fowls all the milk they
'wlll consume. When they cannot
use enough of it on account of its
water ) ' nature , it Is very easy to mal\O
cottage cheese for them out of lho
Dehorningl Calves.
It Is more humane to dehorn calves
! Jy the use of caustic potash when
lho horns arc just startIng than It Is
to use the saw on the horns after they
have developed. Also , the tasle is
easier at the earlier ' '
period. 1'ho operation -
eration with the causl1c potnsh should
be mndo before the calf Is nine da's
old. The betler tlmo Is when the
calf Is from two' to five days old ,
