SNAKE BIVER VALLEY
RICHEST FARMING COUNTRY IN
A Complete System of Irrigation Re
lieves the Anxiety About Rata That
l'revalls ta Other Parts or the United
States East aad West Compare!.
We are permitted to publish an ex
tract from a private letter written by
a gentleman who has recently been
devoting his time to the personal in
vestigation of practical farming" by ir
rigation in the vest. His vivid por
trayal of the advantages of that sys
tem will no doubt interest our readers.
"There is a vast, an immeasurable
difference between farming in the east
and farming in tha west. If the farm
ers of the east could only be made to
understand the advantages enjoyed by
their western brethren, I verily believe
there would soon be no laud for set
tlement in the great irrigation states.
The Irrigation farmer lias absolute
certainty of crop, and certainty of i's
perfect maturity. He never plants
that he does not reap, and when I say
reap I don't mean the reaping of scat
tered stands of half matured grain
such as the eastern farmer cuts at the
close of a dry season; but the reap
ing of fields that frequently average 50
bushels of wheat to the acre every
grain of which has reached the perfec
tion of development. There is no
anxious scanning of the skies for the
'cloud no larger than a man's hand
and fervent prayers that it may en
velop the heavens and send down wa
ter to the thirsty fields. The irriga
tion farmer never thinks about rain.
He watches his growing crops, and the
day and the hour moisture is needed,
he is out with his hoe flooding his
fields with water from canals that
"Everything grows in the west that
jrrows anywhere else in the United
States north of Tennessee. Potatoes
frequently yield 500 bushels to the
acre, and barley is grown far better
than any raised in the east. The
fruits are delicious. I never saw any
to compare with thoe grown in Idaho,
where apples, peaches, plums, cherries,
pears, apricots abound, and where
there are thousands or acres of Italian
and German prunes which I am told
have made fortunes for their owners.
"To my mind, Idaho is the best wa
tered and most inviting arid state in
the Union. I made a careful investiga
tion of the great Snake River valley
in that state, along and tributary to
the Oregon Short Line Railroad, and
saw there evidences of prosperity such
cs I have never seen elsewhere in the
United States. This wonderful valle7
is said to contain over 3,000,000 acres
of arable land. It is threaded with
great Irrigation canals in every direc
tion, and there are vast tracts await
ing only the touch of the farmer to
make them productive. The sun doesn't
shine on finer or more fertile land.
When I saw the happy homes, the well
filled granaries, the sleek, fat stock,
and the smile on the face of nature
reflected in a smile cf contentment on
the faces of the farmeis. my heart
went out in pity to the thousands in
tha east who are struggling along from
year to year, toiling against athc.se
climatic conditions, and never know
ing how soon a drouth will wipe out
the profits of prosperous years.
"Lands can be had in ibis Snake
River valley almost for the asking,
but they are going, day by day. The
Oregon Short Line is making extra
ordinary efforts to bring the advan
tages of Idaho to the notice of eastern
farmers, and is flooding the country
with conservatively written descriptions
of the state. Write to the General Pas
senger Agent of this Railroad at Salt
Lake for printed matter about Idaho,
and read it carcfuliy. It will be a
revelation to you and I sincerely be
lieve will end in your lemoval to tha

Condensed from Farmers Review
The Wisconsin State Horticultural
Society held its annual meeting In
Madison Feb. 5 to S. The attendance
was fair. The program was wellfoi
owed and much matter of interest was
discussed. The session aevored to the
nursery business was taken up large
ly with brisk discussion on the tree
peddlers. There are among paddlers
honest men representing reliable nur
series, but theie are, on the olbe? hand,
many unscrupulous men who do not
stop at anything to gain their ends.
The tree-peddling business offers many
nducements to dishonesty, as a man

o for years without being found out
ne only way to prevent the frauda
complained of seems to be scattering
information more fully among the peo
e. The English-speaking farmers, or
it least the Egglish-reading farmers,
aave become so wary that they are no
longer easily caught; but the foreign
bred farmers are being caught right
along, and for them there seems to be
no hope of escape they are paying the
price of ignorance.
One session was devoted to the dis
cussion of the culture of small fruit.
Papers were read by M. S. Kellogg, J.
L. Herbst, Frank Stark, Frederick
Cranefield, A. J. Edwards and S. H.
Marshall. An extended discussion fol
lowed these papers, and this will ap
pear later in the Farmers' Review.
The forestry session was one of un
usual interest The subject was opened
by 13. S. Hoxie, president of the State
Forestry Association. He reviewed tho
attempt to get a bill passed by the
state legislature looking to the begin
ning of the work for the recovery of
our forest domains, and pointed out
what other states are doing in this mat
ter. He said that New York had pur
chased an immense area of land in the
Adirondacks at a cost of only ?1 per
acre, and that now is the time for Wis
consin to take steps to purchase forest
lands, since they can now be obtained
at a small price; vrhile twenty-five
years from now the cost is likely to be
S. M. Owens of Minnesota delivered
a very instructive address on the for
estry of the Old World. He contrasted
.vfcat is being done there with what is
being done here. He showed how Ger
many, France, Austria-Hungary and
Switzerland are conserving their for
ests with the result that they can cut
a large amount annually without de
creasing the main source of their sup
plies. Switzerland has made immense
strides in the matter of the preserva
tion of her forests, which are owned
very largely by the public. There the
public-owned forests are much better
.cept and handled than are the forests
that are owned by private persons. To
oieserve American forests and to re
store them it Is but necessary that a
sensible system of cutting off be em
ployed. Ernest Bruncken, secretary of the
Wisconsin State Forestry Association,
read an interesting paper on forestry
legislation. He said that the greatest
obstacle to obtaining forestry legisla
tion is the popular misunderstanding
of the term "forestry," which is as
sumed to include our parks and shade
tree systems. Forestry relates ex
clusively to the management of trees
in great masses. He said that our
lands can become reforested by simply
cutting off the trees and removing the
rubbish to prevent fires; that nature
will do the planting; but that where
the ground has been eaten up by for
est fires it will not be in a condition
to bear trees for generations.
A session was devoted to orchard
trees, and papers were read by E. S.
Goff, Martin Penning, A. J. Phillips,
G. J. Kellogg and one was sent by O.
M. Lord. Three of these papers treat
ed of plums. The Japanese plums were
condemned as being utterly unlit for
use in Wisconsin. It was the belief
of the convention that our hope lies
in the native plums. G. J. Kellogg's
paper was on lop-grafting. It will ap
pear later in the Farmers Review.
A. L. Hatch spoke on what we can
do to make trees bear fruit He be
lieves th.1 we must cultivate and feed
our trees if we expect results, just as
much a3 we have to feed our animals
Frank Yahnke spoke on the growing
of vegetables for market He said that
the man that makes vegetable grow
ing his business must grow all kinds
and put them on the market in the best
shape. He must not try to grow all
kinds of vegetables on the same kind
of soil, but must give to each vegetable
the kind of soil it requires.
One session was devoted to the me
morial addresses on J. C. Plumb, F.
W. Loudon, M. A. Thayer and Peter
Wm. Toole spoke on what to plant
to beautify our school grounds. This
address vill appear later in the Farm
ers' Review, as will other talks and
discussions that enlivened the meet
ing. The election of officers resulted in
the following choice: President,
Franklin Johnson; vice-president, T.
E. Loope; secretary, J. L. Herbst;
treasurer, R. J. Coe; member of trial
orchard committee, L. G. Kellogg.
The discussion on place of holding
the next annual meeting did not result
in definitely fixing the place, but tho
expreesions were -strongly in favor or
Yellow Clover Seed.
A German professor Menke once
made some experiments to ascertain
if there is any difference in the germi
nating power of the differently colored
clover seeds. He picked out the yel
low, green, brown, light brown, dark
brown and black seeds and planted
them by themselves. They were care
fully watched and all were treat .! to
identical conditions. Very few of the
green seeds developed enough to form
cotelydons. and they were very weak.
Practically all of the yellow seeds de
veloped and formed strong plants.
The light brown also did well, but did
not give so good returns as the yellow
seeds. In the first place the number
of seeds that germinated was less than
with the yellow, and the plants were
not so thrifty. The brown and dark
brown and black seeds were of value
only according as they approached the
lighter shade, and the darker ones
were practically cf no value. We do
not know that any like' experiment has
been carried out here, but it is one
that is easily carried through. We do
not know that the above experiment
was repeated enough times, to make it
valuable "as an indicator. If it can be
used as an index at all, it teaches that

grains Is best

Italian Ryo Grass.
This grass is known scientifically as
Lollum Italicum and L. Perenne. A
government report says: These are
among the oldest cultivated grasses,
and are probably grown more widely
than any others in Europe. They have
been used largely in the Northern
states, where they are often satisfac
tory, but In the South they have not
done well except In a few especially
favorable locations. They succsed best
on a rich, moist, sandy soil containing
a fair amount of lime, and on such
soils are fairly permanent, but en dry,
thin soils and heavy clays they soon
disappear. They will cover ti ground
sooner and make a better sward in a
few weeks after planting than cost
other grasses, and era valuable wlicre
quick resuits are wanted auu for cov
ering the ground while ctacr anG stare
permanent sorts, like reatcp nT.il or
chard grass, are beco-'.ns establlsusd.

the perennial rye craiaei. 'fiic per-
ennial, or English rye grass, is the
longer lived and so the best for per
manent pastures. The Italian rye
grass makes a ranker growth and cov
ers the ground more quickly. Seed
may be sown in either fall or spring,
and from two to three bushels per -acre
are required when sown alone, or one
bushel when sown with other grasses.
Utilize Alt Manure.
Of every 1.0C0 bushels of corn fed to
stosk 800 goes into the manure pile.
That is, only about 20 per cent of the
whole is utilized by the digestive sys
tem of the animal. The provident
farmer will, therefore, see to it that
this large per cent of his corn crop
is returned to the land. Another fact
that should be considered in connec
tion with this one is that a very large
part of the nutrient is contained In the
The practice therefore of hauling out
the manure often is to be commended.
In the ordinary barnyard there is no
possibility of conserving all the ma
nure if the pile is allowed to grow un
molested from fall till spring. The
reason is plain. Every barnyard to be
serviceable must be well-drained, and
this means that there is provision for
carrying off the surplus water or
liquid. The manure is frequently
drenched and suffers most from the
spring rains. Not only is all the liquid
manure carried away, but the solid
manure has much of its virtue washed
out of it
Experiments have shown that the
loss is often half of the total manure.
Let a man consider that this means
say 400 bushels of corn for every 800
bushels he should have put back on
his land, and he may begin to consider
the feasibility and the necessity of
taking the best of care of this indi
rect wealth. A very few farmers have
tanks and reservoirs under their barns
for the conservation of both the liquid
and solid manure, but by far the great
er number of farmers have no such
arrangements, and, what is more,
never will have such. The only plan
that stands any chance of being uni
versally adopted is that of hauling out
the manure often through the winter
ar?I having it dumped in small piles
where the rains can wash It into the
ground at will, the residue being scat
hed over the ground 3S soon as the
ireather permits in the spring. We
leel certain that if the plan of haul
ing out the manure often through the
winter were adopted it would mean
millions of dollars annually in the
pockets of American fanners.
Selecting Breeding Turkeys. I have
met with best success with pullets of
from sixteen to twenty pounds, and old
hens from eighteen to twenty-three
pounds. They lay eggs that are larger
and more fertile than do the bigger
hens. They are also more active and
healthj-, and make better mothers.
The torn, I believe, has more influence
on the shape and color of offspring
than the female. He should be as near
perfection in shape and color of plum
age as can be found, and of medium
size. Breeders ought net to try to get
"the biggest torn, in America." The
male should be of medium height, but
cf large bone, with big feet and legs
and good-sized frame. If the breast is
not filled out while he is young, he will
be all right when matured. In fact,
he will grow into a larger bird than if
he is nice and plump at the beginning
of the season witho-it the other fea
tures. S. B. Johnston, in American
When fowls are to be transported
from one place to another, care should
be taken that the cages or coops be
so protected by cloth or otherwise that
the birds will not be exposed to all
the icy winds that blow. It is no
unusual sight in Chicago to see a coop
of fowl3 exposed to weather far be
low zero, and that, too, with high
wind. Birds so treated are about sure
to get bad colds, which make them an
easy prey to the roup. We under
stand that even show birds are jften
exposed to like conditions. This prob
ably accounts for the number of birds
with colds that arc noticed at winter
exhibits of poultry.

k NOTED JUDGE
Had Catarrh Nine Years All Doctors Failed.
RON. GEORGE KERSTEN. OF CHICAGO.
IToa. Geo. Kcrstcn, a well-known .Justice of the IVace, of Chicago, .says:
"f was afflicted with Catarrh for nine years. My catarrh was
located chiefly in my head. I tried many remedies .without avail.'
I applied to several doctors, but they were not able to cure me. I .
learned of the remedy, Peruna, through the daily newspapers. After
taking the remedy for 18 weeks I was entirely cured. I consider my
cure permanent, as it has been two and a half years since I was cured. "
Any man who wishes perfect health
must be entirely free from catarrh.
Catarrh is well-nigh universal: almost
omnipresent. Pcrnna is the only ab
solute safeguard known. A cold is the
beginning of catarrh. To prevent
colds, to cure colds, is to cheat catarrh
out of its victims. IVruna not only
cures catarrh, but prevents it.

Red, Rough Hands, Itching, Burning
Palms, and Painful Finger Ends.
One Night Treatment
Soak the hands on retiring in a strong, hot,
creamy lather of CUTICURA SOAP. Dry,
and anoint freely with CUTICURA, the great
skin cure and purest of emollients. Wear, during
the night, old, loose kid gloves, with the finger
ends cut off and air holes cut in the palms. For
red, rough, chapped hands, dry, fissured, itching,
feverish palms, with shapeless nails and painful
finger ends, this treatment is simply wonderful,
and points to a speedy cure of the most distress
ing cases when physicians and all else fail.
Sore Hands 8 Years Cured.
Pain So Intense Would Nearly Twist Fingers From Socket5. Hands
Puffed Up Like a Toad. Water Ran Through Bandages to
Floor. Had to Walk the Floor Until Would Fall
Asleep. Fingers Would Peel Like an Onion.
Doctors Could Not Cure.
Eight roars ago 1 got aore h.ntid, caintni'iiciiig with a burning sensation
on my finger and on top of the hand. When I ruMted them, you could
fee little white pimples. I Mt like twisting my finger? out of their socket.
I had high fever, and cold chili' ran over me," and ?o f kept it going until
I was tired out. Night?, I had to walk th lloor until I fell asleep. M y
hands peeled like an onion, the finger naiN got loose, and the water
ran out, and wherever there was a little pimple tin-re the hurniug tire was
that happened sit leat ten times. I am running a blacksmith shop, horse
shoeing, anil 1 would not shut up the shop for anybody, but it u:is haid.
My hands puffed tip worse than a toad. When 1 drove horse nails, the
water from my hands ran through the bandage, oa to the floor. .My eur
tonvr9 refused to look at my hand. I had a friend take me to the doctor;
he gav3 a .solution of something to bathe my hands. I went, to another
doctor, I think, for a year. I found your advertisement in a I'tica news
paper, and I got the frTicriiA remedies. As soon as I ns,.(l them I began
to gain, and after using a small quantity of them I was entirely cured. I
would not take fifty dollars for a cake of Ct"TiCfi: So p if I could not grt
anv more. I would not differ :inr more as I did. for the whole count.
