A goodly number convened at Msen
nerchor hall at 1:30 Tuesday afternoon
of last week. John J. Galley was select
ed as temporary chairman, and Samuel
Drinnin as secretary, the temporary
organization being afterwards made
EL V. Forrell of Kearney was requested
to open the exercises by stating the
objects of farmers' institutes, which he
proceeded to do in an interesting man
ner. He said that there had been con
aiderable prejudice among actual farm
ers against those who had been styled
"book farmers," "kid-gloved farmers,"
because some such had been visionary in
their methods, dreamers of dreams that
they had not realized in a practical way.
He believed in having a definite object
and aim in life, and working towards
that. The successful farmer is one who
makes two blades of grass grow where
but one grew before, or in general terms,
the successful man in any business is
one who conducts affairs, so as to make
the very best possible of the conditions.
He who so manages as to have a greater
inoome than expense is on the way to
wealth, while he whose expense is con
stantly greater than hia income, ia trav
eling the other way. We are -here to
learn of each other bow better to sow, to
plant, to reap, to manage our farm affairs.
This part of Nebraska is the garden spot
of the earth. The resources of our state
are almost boundless, and it is our privi
lege to learn what we may to better our
condition. A citizen of the western part
of the state aojoumed in eastern Ne
braska, and when asked his opinion of
the two sections, replied: "You waste
more than we live on," and the epeaker
thought that the suggestion would be n
profitable one to think about why not,
by better methods of culture and feeding
and care, utilize the waste now going on,
on the f arma of the state, which he esti
mated at about one-third of the product?
Mutual benefit is what we are here for,
and we can all learn something we need
Joseph Henggler's theme was Dairying.
He spoke of the importance of the indus
try to the fanner and to the county, and
the aubjeet ia many-sided, according to
the object in view, whether it is the sale
of tha aulk, the manufacture of butter
or cheese. For the purpose of milk alone,
he regards the Holetein cow the beat;
for cream, or for the sale of butter, he
thought the Jersey one of the best For
the purpose of mixed farming, milk,
stock-raising, butter and all, he regarded
the Shorthorn as the main strain and
thought the straight, full-bred Durham,
crossed with either Holstein or .Hereford
was about right. Mr. Henggler com
pared the worth of the cow with the
horse, with the result very much in favor
of the cow, whose whole life ia a bene
faction to her owner, and whose muscle,
bones, blood and hair are valuable arti
cles of commerce. The cow deserves the
very best of esre with plenty of good
feed, and richly repays sll that ia
bestowed upon her, in milk and cream.
He believed in the cow as a wealth pro
ducer, for the farmer as ordinarily sit
uated. Good butter baa a reedy sale at
the bast prices, and thebuainass is well
worth tha while of every farmer family
to look after. Much of the family ex
peases are met by the products of the
dairy, aa can be especially felt when the
grain crop ie abort. Afewnfinuteswere
spent in giving the principal secrete of
butter making, among which were noted
that the temperature should be right;
no coarse sslt should be used; after the
list working, the butter should stand at
least three hours; no water should be
left in the butter.

ing, from present appearance, promised
to be the best of nU. Jt was sowed the
latter part of August, and it ia now a
wonderfully good stand. In his opinion,
if it don't freeze out, fall ia better than
spring planting. He considered every
acre of land in alfalfa with a good stand,
worth $100 an acre. One-half bushel of
need to the acre ia the right quantity of
eeed, and if he cowed anything with it, it
would be flax, and he would now broad
cast, preparing the ground by dragging
once or twice and using the disc drill
two times to pack the ground. He had
tried sowing with oats, barley and rye,
but preferred flax, because it did not
shade the alfalfa. He didnt believe he
would undertake to raise hogs without
alfalfa, because they can be raised ever
so much cheaper, and gave figures to
show what he had done. He advocated
cutting alfalfa when it was just coming
Mr. Ernst wns also asked to talk upon
alfalfa, and was very enthusiastic in its
favor. He lives in Johnson county, and
believes this section of thestate is better
than his for growing the plant The
first and most important thing is where
to get seed. Home-grown is the best.
That from California, Arizona and
Arkansas does not do well here. He
spoke very favorably of aeed from Utah.
The ground should be well prepared,
and reasonably clean when the seed is
sown. He thought 25 to 30 pounds to
the acre was seed enough, and he pre
ferred tosow it broadcBSt, harrowing one
way and next cross-harrowing, and then
harrowing until you are tired, and after
that, once again. He made the remark
that alfalfa does its own eubeoiling.
When weeds come up mow weeds and
alfalfa and let the tope lie together on
the ground as mulching. He didn't
think it best the first season to mow later
than September L One piece, in alfalfa
for sixteen years, was plowed up the last
season, simply because the land was
wanted for another purpose, but the
alfalfa waa all right, and that ia one
thing by which alfalfa recommends itself
with a good stand, to begin with, it
usually gets" better and -better. The
third year should produce n full crop,
four to five tons of cured hay to the acre.
There is nothing better as a bog pasture,
and there ia no mistake about its feeding
value. He cowed from March 10 to 15,
according to conditions. During after
cutting has a wonderful effect on the
alfalfa. Cant harrow too much, the
teeth should be alantedV which packs the
ground. The land which will produce
alfalfa ia limited, and thia is one of the
reasons why every acre which is well set
to alfalfa ia practically worth $100. He
tuul quit raising for seed. He had known
it to do well on alkali spots. Mr. Forrell
corroborated Mr. Ernst in many things
he said in regard to alfalfa, and added
some facts that he had gathered in his
travels, one of which we note was that
Mr. Watson near Kearney has a very
heavy growth of alfalfa in alkali spots.
Z. D. Stileon of York spoke for a few
minutes on the Campbell system of soil
culture; how to save the moisture which
falls and use it for growing crops. The
main theory is to pack the subsoil and
by shallow stirring of the surface, keep
the moisture from evaporating. He in
stanced two fields of corn on the name
kind of soil the past season (a road be
tween them), one treated the ordinary
way with the result fifteen bushels to
the acre; the other by the Campbell
system, forty bushels to the acre. It
requires a good deal ot work, it is true,
but it is work -that pays, and pays well,
every time, but more especially ia it im
portant in dry and very dry season, or
where the natural water supply is short.
Winter wheat should be cultivated two
times, after spring commences. A home
made cultivator will do, the frame of 2x4,
the teeth 00-penny, wire nails.
SCHOOL OF AaBICULTUBB.
The last address was by E. V. Forrell,
and, after an animated talk upon the
radical difference between mere book
knowledge as usually taught in schools,
and what ia known as "nature teaching,"
following the auggeationsof the child's
nature; its likings; its nptitudes, illus
trating by example the two methods.
He believed in the practical, as well aa
the theoretical; that is practical which
has ita foundations and its benefits in
the nature of things themselves. It has
often happened that a boy has seemed to
lsck ability to get much benefit out of
school books, and yet haa gathered, in
his own good tiaas, by hia own earnest
atriving after better conditions, a fund
of practical information along with n
fixed habit of independent thought,

main reliance in life has been a teacher

how and what to learn, and to teach in n
and halfhearted manner.

and universities, without learning that
aelf-reliaace which ia so absolutely nec

Mr. Forrell gave a brief outline of the
history of agricultural collages in the
United States, and a more full and par
ticular account ot the Nebraska school

At the Farmers' Institute in Columbus
last Wednesday, Mr. Bremer informed us
that it was possible last summer, where
he lives, near York, Nebraska, to take
from a field of alfalfa, 4 tons of hay from
first cutting of an acre, and 4 tone to the
acre from third cutting; the second cut
ting was cut for seed, and yielded after
being threshed, five bushels to the acre.
The hay if sold in York, would bring $10
a ton, and the seed wss worth $7 n
busheL Now, it we have the gentle
man's figures right, we would sdvise
every farmer to sow alfalfa and out it aa
often as it undertook to bloom, except
when you want a second cutting for seed.
The farmers hereabouts wouldTbe pleased
to have the institute continue at least
three days, as it is almost impossible for
active farmers living from five to twelve
miles from town, to attend the "evening
meetings, and the best of one day ia
usually taken up in getting organized.
We believe that if our next institute
could be continued for two or three days
much benefit -to the farmers would
accrue. The evening sessions would be
good for the town people, and for aa
many of the country people as oould get
in. Let us have more light.

the beat example of increase in land
values so far exhibited in Platte county.
Mr. Dickinson bought thia land 5 years

A lady missionary In Burma soma
time ago gave the following account of
how she was the Innocent cause of the
worship of medicine bottles having
Untnstituted. In one of her tours
she came upon a village where cholera
was raging. Having with her a quan
tity of a famous pain killer, she went
from house to bouse administering the
remedy to those attacked and left a
number of bottles to be used after she-
Returning to the village some months
subsequently she was met by the bend
man of the community, who cheered
and delighted her by this intelligence:
"Teacher, we have come over to your
side. The medicine did us so much
good that we have accepted your god."
Overjoyed at this news, she -was con
ducted to the house of her Informant
who, opening a room, showed her the
pain killer bottles solemnly arranged
in a row upon the shelf, and before
them the whole company immediately
prostrated themselves In worship.

Afceat Titled Pwplc
When the duchess of Cornwall and
York was told that she would not hold
that title much longer that she was,
in fact for the future to be known as
the princess of Wales she remarked
sadly to one of her attendants: "I
really feel quite miserable! It does
seem bard!" "Hard! your royal high
ness? Hard to lie the princess of
Wales! Surely not!" "Yes." an
swered the duchess, thoughtfully: "it
will, indeed, be hard for me to be
known as the princess of Wales. I
think of the princess of Wales before
myself now our queen. How cau I
ever make myself so beloved or carry
out the duties so magnificently as did
the princess of Wales? Ob, dear!"
and the bonnie lady sighed. Chicago
