The pop corn seed of 1894 and 1896
have shown a high percentage of ger
mination. One hundred per cent ger
minating. Sweet corns have not ger
minated as well. These germination
tests indicate that all corn kept in open
cribs or shock where rain has had easy
access, should not be used for planting.
Seed kept in dry places germinates
well, so that farmers need not purchase
expensive seed. The changeable condi
tions of moisture and drying, greatly
injuring the capacity for germination.
Corn may show a high percentage of
germination in laboratory and yet fail
to germinate well in the field. If the
weather is warm and soil has a suffi
cient quantity of water, the laboratory
and field tests will nearly coincide, but
with a soil soaked with water and cold
weather, there will be a considerable
loss. L. H. Pammel, Botanist

Sugar Beet Soil.
"The query that presents Itself to
most people when the matter of grow
ing sugar beets is presented, is what
kind of soil is best for them? This
may be replied to in a general way by
the statement that any moderately fer
tile soil, such as will grow wheat, corn,
potatoes, cotton, etc., will be found
suited to sugar beets, and even soils
too salty or alkaline to grow these
crops will produce good beets. Sugar
beets have been found a good crop to
plant upon soils somewhat alkaline,
with a view of improving the soil, this
crop having been found valuable for
extracting and removing alkali in
small quantities. Experiments have
been made with growing upon ex
tremely light, sandy soils and upon
heavy adobe and clay soils; upon very
sterile and fertile soils, with results
leading to the conclusion that extremes
in all these classes of soil should be
avoided, while medium soils of all
kinds give satisfactory yields. One of
the essentials is that the soil shall have
depth that is, it must be of a friable
nature to the depth of a foot or more.
Another is that there shall he no "hard
pan" near the surface. A calcareous
soia nas been found to produce the
greatest per cent of sugar. In too rich
a soil the beets grow too large, have
little sugar and grow too much leaves.
In a poor soil the beets may be rich
in sugar, but the yield will be too small
to be a paying crop. In a wet soil the
beets are too large and contain an in
sufficient amount of sugar. A dearth
of water produces a small crop and
woody structure. A heavy clay or
adobe is not loose enough to be easily
worked and requires too much care in
irrigating and cultivating to give good
returns. The reports of experiments
show that in Wisconsin the richest
beets were obtained from a fertile clav
loam. In Washington the best results
were obtained from a soil intermediate
between a clay loam and a sandy loam.
In South Dakota a dark sandy loam
and clay loam gave the most satisfac
tory crop. In Nebraska the best crops
are grown upon a sandy loam. In Kan
sas the best results are from a loam.
In Iowa a dark loam proved best In
Indiana most arable lands gave about
equally good results though a moder
ately sandy loam seemed rather better
than others. From these results the
ideal soil for the sugar beet may be
called a moderately fertile rather por
ous, deep sandy loam, with a porous
subsoil." Wm. Stowe Devol, in Bul
letin 23, Arizona Experiment Station.
A I'eruliar Practice.
ine nasmngton star of the 13th
Inst makes a vigorous and just pro
test against the practice of the
treasury department compromising
oleo prosecutions, says Chicago Pro
duce. It Is the practice of the govern
ment officials when a dealer is ar
rested for violating the internal rev
enue laws, to give him every oppor
tunity to pay his fine and escape
prosecution, thus making his offense
disagreeable" to him in no way ex
cept in the loss of a certain amount
of money, the aggregate of which
may not be as great as one month's
profits from his fraudulent practices.
In the case of one retailer in Chi
cago who was recently apprehended
for illegally selling oleomargarine,
the internal revenue collector sim
ply called him up. secured from him
an offer to compromise, and for
warded this offer to Washington for
approval of the treasury depart
ment If the offer is accepted he
will suffer no further inconvenienco
from this case, and the public will
be none the wiser. His case will not
serve as an example for other of
fenders. It will be necessary for
the presecutors to hunt up Individ-
ual cases and prosecute each separ
ately. The Star pats it very pointedly
and very justly in an editorial of
some length, in which it says: "There
is grave doubt whether the principle
of compromise, as applied to criminal
cases, operates to the advantage of
tbe community by the discouraging of
crime. It has even been asserted by
some observers that compromises tend
to foster daring operations in defiance
oi me law, especially when no ques-
tion exists as to Kuilt and conviction
is within reach. In the case. of the
pending oleomargarine prosecutions
the officials of the internal revenue
bureau acknowledge that they are
now considering the advisability of
accepting an offer made by the al
leged violaters of the law prohibit
ing the sale as butter of imitations
of that product, who propose to pay
a heavy sum in consideration of tbe
dropping of the cases against them.
This method of settling proceedings
under the law is permitted by the
statutes, and involves no impeach
ment of personal integrity, but it is
a serious question whether the best
purposes of the law are furthered
by acquiescence in such suggestions.
The chief purpose of the penalties
provided by the law is not to mulct
the offenders to the enrichment of the
treasury, but to discourage further vio
lations. The people of the district and
others who suffer from the operations
of these dealers in imitations of hatter,
who persist in marketing their prod
ucts as the genuine article, are not
concerned in the least in the state of
the "fraud fund" of the internal rev
enue office, into which these compro
mise payments are paid, but they are
deeply interested in the success of the
efforts to stamp out the frauds, and to
this end they hope to see the law re
lentlessly applied and the just penal
ties incurred exacted to the letter when
convictions are obtained. An offender
wo is confident of securing an acquit
tal will not generally offer to compro
mise and such an offer may be taken
as fairly good evidence that he fears
conviction. If he anticipates benefit
from the lack of positive proof or from
the interference of some technicality,
he will save his funds and defy the of
ficers of the law to prosecute him. His
offer to pay a large sum, even when
more in amount than the fine that
would be imposed in case of convic
tion, would not serve the full pur
poses of the law, which also calls for
a term of imprisonment It is this
latter mode of punishment which is
most likely to deter an evil-doer from
a repetition of his crime. The money
fine may only be partially representa
tive of the profits of the illegal prac
tice at which the law aims, and a
system of fines without imprisonment
would practically amount to licensing
a fraudulent business. The imprison
ment is dreaded by violators, and as
long as there is the least opportunity
to secure conviction which will result
in the application of this penalty all
offers of compromise should be reject
ed. If. however, there should be
enough doubt of success in case of ac
tive prosecution to warrant the accept
ance of a compromise offer, the fine
exacted in this way should be large
enough to put a heavy premium on
good behavior in the future."
This "compromise" feature of the
internal revenue law is one of the
greatest obstacles in the way of en
forcing the oleomargarine act
Sale of American Horses.
Regular weekly shipments of Amer
ican horses are now sent to Liverpool,
London, Glasgow, and many other
large cities, and sold at auction. Amer
ican horses, like American cattle, have
won the public favor where a few
years ago there was strong prejudice
against all horses not English or
Scotch bred, says Live Stock Journal.
The following report from Mark Lane
Express of a recent sale shows how
prices go over there, estimating in
rouud numbers $5 to the guinea: "A
sale of United States and Canadian
horses was held by Messrs. Macdonnld.
Fraser & Co.. Limited, at tJhsgow,
when over fifty were catalogued. The
animals were from four to seven year
old, and ranged from lii.2 to 17 hands
high. They consist.! ;r matching and
brougham horses. :t :..i.:i!.er of strong
van or 'bus hcrscs, a few suitable for
carting and lorry purposes, and one or
two trotters. As the season is now close
at hand when extensive purchases aio
made, the inquiry was much baiter
than for some time past, and i;oo!
commercial horses were competed for
and realized full values. Nan and har
ness horses sold from 25ss. to 3:igs.
and up to 4-igs. and 4Ggs.; matching
and carnage horses, 31gs. to 3Cgs., and
from lS'gs. to 25gs. A handsome bay
trotting cob, considered to be one of
the finest presented for sale by auc
tion, was run up to 90gs., at which fig
ure it was withdrawn. The firm since
lat auction sale have passed about
eighty animals through their hands by
private bargain, tind disposed of har
ness horses up to C0; cart hortfs, to
44, and 'bus horses from 24 to L'iJ.
Orchard Planting in South Africa.
A well-known Cane Colony nurseryman
has recently written a letter relating
to the subject of colonial fruit culture.
He states, says the Fruit Grower. Fruit
erer, Florist, and Market Gardener
(London), that in the season of lS'J-1 he
sold 2000 young trees; in 1S93. 25,000,
and in 1896, 70,000. He expects to dis
pose of quite 200,000 during the next
season and will have nearly half a
million for sale the season after. No
less than 25,000 trees were bought by
bona fide Afrikander orchardists, or
ders coming even from such distant
places as Blantyre, British Central Af
rica, and Bulawayo. Another nursery
man sold 3,000 young trees in 1S94: 4,
000 in 1895, and 4,200 in 1S9G. It it? es
timated that fully 200,001) young trees
were bought and planted t,y orchard

Care of Blooded Stock. The interest
now being taken in improved stock we
wish to stimulate, but at the same time
warn our readers that improved cattle,
or any other live stock, require im
proved ways and methods of care and
handling. It takes but a very short
time for the very best to degenerate
to the very worst if not properly fed
and sheltered. What is gained in buy
ing an animal at a large price if you
intend to allow it to shift for itself?
It will be money worse than wasted
for you are not only throwing the
money away, but you are ruining a
creature that in the hands of proper
management would not only prove a
profitable investment to the owner, but
to the community at large. Ex.
On a scale of 100 points the prize
butter at the Massachusetts Agricul
tural Society ranged as follows: Cream
cry. 97: dairy, 97 Vi. The standard for
judging butter adopted by the Massa
chusetts Agricultural Society is a very
good one for others to follow. It is
this: Flavor, 45; grain. 25; color, 15;
salt, 10; packing, 5. The standard of
Cavor was that of June butter.
Beautify the home. Beauty is a pow
er in its influence on the soul of man.
The roots of currants and gooseber
ries of bearing age should 'not be dis
turbed by cultivation or hoeing until
after fruiting season. Apply a mulch
of coarse manure or straw, thick
enough to prevent the growth of the
weeds. In and about the hills and rows.
Look for the current borer at this tlate.
When the leaves start, affected canes
commence to wither and die. Cut out
the affected canes below the black cen-
ter and bum at once. All newly set
' plants shonld be thoroughly cultivated,
j weeds must not be allowed to grow, for
they consume valuable plant food and
the moisture so necessary to the vounu
plant Frequent surface cultivation
makes the natural food of the nlant
more available, prevents escape of
moisture and holds water In store for
summer use. The root is the founda
tion of the plant, it should be stimu
lated to early and continuous growth
by the best care in the beginning. If
plants have failed to grow, set new
ones in their place at once; one cannot
afford to have missing hills. Blackber
ry and raspberrry bushes should be
trimmed severely, cut back at least
one-third or one-half, severely pruning
increases the size and quantity of the
fruit Picking, packing and marketing
are important factors in growing fruit
for profit The grower should under
stand that choice berries are always
in demand and the market is never
overstocked; that it costs just as much
to raise poor berries as good ones;
that it costs more to pick and pack
poor berries; that freight and express
charges are just as high on poor ber
ries: hence there is profit only in grow
ing the best for the market Berry
boxes and cases should be made before
the season begins. Clean, well-made
packages, neatly stenciled on the side
with name and residence, soon become
your "trade mark;" let it also be a
guarantee of good berries, honestly
packed. Never allow, stems, leaves,
dirt, imperfect or unripe berries in the'
box. Always have a uniform quality
throughout and the boxes well filled.
For long shipment pick one every day,
and before the fruit is too ripe. Never
offer poor berries for sale, and never
use a dirty box or a poor case. If it be
comes necessary to sell poor berries
send to a good commission house, but
never place your name on the case. Let
markets be as near as possible, and to
regular customers. If you would have
good markets and good prices always
deal honestly with j'our customers.
M. A. Thayer.
The sow at farrowing should be in
good flesh, but not too fat A week
or ten days before farrowing she
should be confined to a pen separate
from the other hogs and in a quiet
place. Her keeper should take the
time to go into the pen and fondle her
so as to gain her confidence. During
these few days she will become ac
quainted with her quarters, and will
feel secure from outside intruders.
says a writer in American Swineherd.
If he goes in the pen often she will
soon be glad to see him, for, like any
other animal, the hog likes company
md gets lonesome when left too much
alone. There is no animal that has
been domesticated that is more intelli
gent and tractable than the well-bred
hog. When she is about to farrow she
will begin to fix up for the "quilting"
by making her bed in proper shape.
To this end give her clean quarters
on a dry floor with short straw; long
coarse bedding has been tbe death of
many a pig. If the weather is cold it
will pay to watch her close by night
and day, and if liable to chill take the
young pigs as fast as they come to a
.varm room and give them a little
warm milk with a spoon; then when
the dam has gotten over her sickness
take them to her. Scratch her on the
udder and place the little fellows
where they can get warm and they
will go to work in earnest. When the
weather is not cold, she will get along
just as well if left alone. If she is

V. V. Anderson, in a paper at
farmers' institute, said:
"First, we must know tho type and
habits of the plant, its weak and ob
jectionable points, as well as the ideal
we wish to make it. This will require
much study and practice, but we can
not safely proceed until this is firmly
fixed in our mind. Vc must be able to
delect the slightest change for the
better. We provide ourselves with a
number of stakes, numbered; o into
the field as soon as blossoms appear to
look for this ideal plant. It must ho
stocky, upright, bright, clean and
thrifty. Its fruit buds must be large,
and, if a pistilate, free from stamens;
if a perfect flower, to be used as a
fertilizer, see that the stamens are
large, well developed, and perfect in
form, with as many buds as can be
matured and no more. If promising, a
stake is placed by it. When the fruit
has sot we make a careful examination,
and in book mark size, shape, color,
firmness, vigor, productiveness, acidity,
etc., and cut off all beirics except one.
The ripening of one or tvo berries
help to develop its power all would
exhaust it. Watch the ripening pro
cess and make a decision, and award
the first premium for perfection, viz.:
size, vigor, foim, color, firmness, flavor
and uniform good qualities. All the
plants near it .-.re removed, all runners
well rooted or potted and transported
to a specia, propagating bed. Follow
this method jear after year and you
will be surprised at the increase in
fruit as well as tho price you can com
mand. Rasr-berries, blackberry and
all other small fruits are selected in the
same mai.ncr. To maintain the full
vigor, take plants from beds set the
previous year; pick the bloom the first
year. This is important, don't neglect it.

The very fact of Boston Store managing

and we urgently ailvi.se you to take advan

loss ever incurred by any "number of
firms ever engaged in the clothing business.
Nothing but the immediate and pressing
need of spot cash to avoid n total rum
would have induced the.-e manufacturers
to take this step.
To give you a better idea of tho way this

you that you can take your choice of it,

can in clothing. Clothing is something
that you must need at some time or other,
nnd when you can buy it at from one-half
to one-third of tho regular price, and new,
stylish goods at that, it is your duty to
yourselves to do so.
In addition to this clothing sale, wo are

GOOD NEWS FOR FARMERS
Arctic overshoes will be cheaper next
tvinter. Our readers have all heard
lomethin about the Rubber Trust,
ind have known that since the forma
tion of the United States Rubber Co.,
rubber boots and shoes have been
nucli higher than they used to be.
.Several new companies, however, have
commenced the manufacture of rubber
goods within thepast year or two, and
the usual result of competition has
followed. Prices arc down, and the
public will get the benefit. The
first new concern to enter the field
was the Providence Rubber Company,
of Providence, R. I. The head of tho
concern was the Hon. A. O. I'ourn,
who had been in Europe as Consul
General to Rome. The firt western
house to put these goods on the mar
ket was IJentley fc Olmsted, of Des
.Moines, who last year had the exclus
ive agency for the northwest, for
the above Rubber Company. These
goods were sold at considerably lower
prices than the Trust goods, and
Bentley & Olmsted were warned by
the Trust that if they continued to
handle outside brands they would dis
criminate against them. The', how
ever, were not to he intimidated, and
have this j-ear secured the exclusive
agency for Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska.

states, of another new concern, Geo.

manufacturers of rubber goods, when
starting his new factory at Philadel
phia, realized that a big business
could be built up on a better grade of
goods. He is therfore making- his
goods of pure Para rubber instead of
using part African, which is much
cheaper, and has also added several
new improvements, such as heavier
i soles and heels, and tins on heavy
goods, with the intention of making
the best wearing goods ever produced.
Another new iine of rubber goods
mdc outside of the Trust, is made by
the Hood Rubber Company, of Boston,
who make a second quality line under
the brand of the Old Colony. It re
mains to be seen whether the trust
will be able to crush out these new

fully disordered, and my digestion became
very poor. I was indoed in a bad condition.
"A minister in conference learning of my
condition advised me to try Dr. Williams'
Tink Pills for Pale People. I bad heard
much about the wonderful curat ire powers
of this medicine, bnt it was with reluctance
that I was tlnallv persuaded to try it, as it
seemed that nothing could do me any good.
However, I procured three boxes of pills
and took them strictly according to direc
tions. By tbo time the last dose was taken
I was almost cured, and in better health
than I had been for rears. I continued
using the pills awhile longer and was en
