Deer Herd Rains Cr p. .
Farmers living near the Nishna
River , in Western Iowa , a short dis
tance east of Omaha , and between the
towns of Avoca and Western , are con-
fronted with a unique condition , says
the Minneapolis Journal. Their crops
are being eaten up and trampled into
the ground , and they are powerless
to prevent the wholesale destruction
because the laws of the State do not
permit the killing of deer. A herd
of nearly 400 deer is roaming about
the country eating the young and
tender grain and tramping into the
ground what is not eaten. There is
no open season in Iowa when deer
can be killed and the killing at any
season subjects the killer to a fine of
$100 and costs.
Collection of the herd was a hobby
of William Cuppy , one of the pioneer
residents of Avoca , a rich farmer own-
ing several thousand acres of land ;
much of it being along the Nishna
River. Upon the death of Cuppy the
administrator of the estate was at a
loss to know what to do with the
animals. In time the court ordered a
division of the property and the set-
tlement of the estate. The land was
sold and all the personal property ,
except the deer , was disposed of. No
ne seemed to want deer.
The Oldest Land in the World.
Stretching across Canada , north of
the St. Lawrence , and ending in the
regions about the source of the Mis
sissippi , is a range of low granite
hills called the Laurentian Highlands.
These hills are really mountains that
are the oldest land in America and ,
according to Agassiz , the oldest in
the world. In the1 , days when there
was nothing but water on the face of
the globe these mountains came up
-a long island of primitive rock with
universal ocean chafing against its
shores. None of the other continents
had put in their appearance at the
time America was thus looking up.
The United States began to come to
light by the gradual uplifting of this
land to the north and the appearance
of ; the tops of the Alleghenies , which
were the next in order. Later the
Rockies started up. The United States
grew southward from Wisconsin and
westward from the Blue Ridge. An
early view of the country would have
showed a large islaud 'whIch is now
Northern Wisconsin , and a long , thin"
tongue of this primitive rock sticking
down from Canada into Minnesota ,
and these two growing States looking
out over the waters at the mere be-
ginnings of mountain ranges east and
west. They were waiting for the rest
of the United States to appear-

Air In the Soil.
It Is necessary to have air in the
soil. It is fot > only needed to develop
the roots of the most dry-land plants ,
but is equally required by water
plants , says the Philadelphia Record.
The air , too , becomes necessary for
plant food development. The agencies
charged with this development include
minute forms of fungoids ( called bac-
teria ) , which require air from which
oxygen as well as nitrogen can > be
If the soils are baked or packed so
hard as to keep out the air-or if
they are so saturated with water that
no air can be secured excepting what
is in the water-these forms of bac-
teria can not live.
Science tells us that the amount of
water in the soil suitable to the
growth of most plants is at its best
when each particle of soil Is covered
with a film of moisture and each film is
connected with every other film so that
there is a continuous succession of
films from the top of the soil to the
water table below the surface. The at-
traction of the water by the soil par-
ticles causes the upward movement
of the water through the medium of
the film , as fast as it is absorbed by
the moisture that goes into the root
hairs or by the evaporation at the
tops of the series of films. The spaees
between the soil particles are then
filled with air way down to .the water
table , and in this way the air and
water are mingled. The air supplies
its elements to the various things in
the soil while the water acts as the
carrier of the elaborated plant food

Work That Counts.
There is always work enough to do" I
on the farm , but at some seasons
things do not press quite as hard as
they do at others. These periods of
relaxation may well be employed in
something which will make the farm
On our farm for a number of years ,
after the stress of haying and harvest
ing was over , we turned our attention
ito ; clearing up a piece of land which
had grown upto small timber and
brush. When we came on the place ,
now some twenty years ago , we found
this piece of land so densely grown
np with briars and small trees that
It was with difficulty that the cattle
could get through it. It furnished lit-
; - - - f' ' - " , . . , ' - '
tle ' in the way of feed.
This stuff we cut off slick and clean ,
sawing the trunks of the little trees
up for wood and piling the brush
nicely. With an old bush scythe we
mowed the briars off close to the
ground and heaped them , too , with the
brush piles. Later , after the danger
from fire running was over , we burned
these neaps and drew the wood away.
You have no idea what a change this
made in that field. The white clover
came in everywhere white and nice.
The sheep and cows have had that
part of the pasture as their favorite
stamping ground ever since.
While there may not be such fields !
on every farm , nevertheless there is
always some such job that may be
done to improve the place. It may
be some 'bit of swamp to drain or a
ditch to put down. Whatever it is , do
it well , and it surely will add many
dollars to the value of the farm.-
Converting the Hoer Into a Rake. :
A new method for eradicating the
worst weeds that trouble the farmer
has been discovered.
The "bindweed" or "wild morning
glory , " has proved very injurious to
various kinds of cultivated . rops : , such
as garden truck , small fruits and
commercial seeds. Where this weed
abounds , the tilling of the soil has
hitherto been very difficult , because
of the underground roots , but the new
method will entirely remove the plant ,
tops and roots as well.
Based upon the fact that hogs are
very fond of the roots and rootscicks
of this plant , which taste very . much
like the sweet potato , George Wiggins ,
a farmer of Lodge , 111. , conceived the
idea that hog pasturing might be re
sorted to successfully to eradicate the
He , accordingly , turned loose about
300 hogs on a field containing thirty
acres which Vas overrun with bind-
These hogs did not have their noses
rung or slit and Mr. Wiggins found
that they not only ate the tops of the
weed closely , but also rooted to a con-
siderable depth to obtain the under-
ground parts : In a comparatively
short time the field was entirely clean-
ed up , and after the process had been
repeated for three consecutive years :
the farmer was able to raise a large
crop of corn and oats on what had
heretofore been practically useless
To produce the most satisfactory
results from this form of hog pas-
turing only a small quantity of food
should be given the animals in order
that they be forced to depend upon
the bindweed. It has been found that
while the hogs do not make quite as
good gains on this diet as on others ,
they do very well , under the treat
An Apple Cave.
A farmer about ; two years ago , says
a writer in Farm , Stock and Home ,
concluded to build an apple cave , and
while there are possibly better caves ,
there are few that cost so little. An
excavation was made in the side of
a hill 18 by 50 feet square , and so
arranged that the completed cave was
8 feet in height. The excavating was
done with plows and slips , the walls
were kept plumb by using an 18-foot
evener with a 20-foot chain fastened
to the plow. One team was placed in
the pit or cave and one on the bank.
By this method . the furrows . were
plowed one on top of the other. The
rear end of the cave was cut out for
about 15 feet or more to drive the
teams in and oat to obviate turning
in the cave. When the excavation
was complete the rear end was filled
in with poles , set close and capped
with a heavy plate. A 2 by 12 inch
oak timber was placed on the bank
for plates , and the top covered with
heavy poles. The front end of the
cave had been cut away and the house
built over the entrance. The rear end ,
two sides and the rear half of the
roof , was first covered with stock
boards these stripped with 1 by 2
inch strips ; then lath and the lath
with two heavy coats of Portland ce
ment. The entire cave , including the
rear end of the house was then cov-
ered with dirt and clover sod. The
front end of the roof was covered with
a good grade of building paper , and
the front wall boarded up and down ,
battened. This was found to be a
mistake ; the entire structure should
have been covered with cement. Two
salt-glazed tiles were placed in the
roof of the cave fpr ventilators. Tarae
double doors were placed in i both tb .
cave and the house. If necessary , two
F wagons may be backed into the house
st the same time. Two car loads c"
apples , a lot of potatoes , onions , etc. .
were stored in this cave last winter.
Everything was' packed in crates
boxes or barrels , and all kept fine
The extra price realized on the applet
would build several such caves.
