FRUIT FOR IOWA.
We have received several inquiries
from different parties in the state ask
ing us to suggest a list of fruit adapt
ed for planting in Iowa. So much de
pends upon the soil, drainage, etc..
that it is difficult to cive a list that
vill cover the whole state of Iowa.
"Iowa is such a big state, with so
many variations c( soil and climate
That it is undesirable to offer a list of
ariiHies for general culture. For
those who contemplate planting an or
chard the first consideration is that of
i-oil and site. Some of the best or
chard lands m the state are situated
on the -Missouri river bluffs. The
preparation of the soil is of equal im
portance with the selection of the
-site. Thorough preparation means
not only pulverizing the -round by
crowing some kind of a hoed crop on
i previous to planting the trees, but
a'so means deepening the cultivation
layer by subsoiling.
"In regard to selection of varieties
;nis is a matter that should be con-i-idtred
with especial reference to
locality. 1 5. teems to me that there
r three principal fruit districts in
'he state. A northern, a central and a
southern area. I would advise the
writer of the above inquiry to exam
ine the orchards in his own vicinity
before making a selection of varieties.
Find out what trees are doing best
in those regions, and what treatment
.n the matter of cultivation appears to
inng the best results.
"On elevated northern slopes with
ood drainage and good tillage the fol
owmg list of apples might prove sat
.siactory. and would probably be as
izood as could b secured at the pres
ent time. This list is given in the
order in which the varieties ripen:
Yellow Transparent. Benoni. Duchess.
Wealthy. Grimes. Jonathan. York Im
perial. Ben Davis. English Golden Rus-s-et.
This list no doubt could be
varied and the variations would de
pend on the number of fall and winter
apples that the grower might wish to

reason in a satisfactory manner.

do not think that pear growinc: is
likely to prove successful anywhere
on the black prairie soils of the state.
lut on the hiher bluff lands along the
rivers there is no reason why an
abundance of pears of fine quality can
not be grown. Mr. B. A Mathews of
Knoxville, Iowa, has studied pear cul
ture very carefulH for twenty-five
or thirty years and is now making a

his best paying variety. Birket is a
ready variety and has no blicht. al
though the fruit is rot very large Bezi
do la Motte is another variety which

"It would be well for you to join the
State Horticultural Society, and in
this way obtain their reports, which
contain a large amount of valuable
information regarding fruit growing
in vour locality."
One farm writer gives, a ration to be
ied hogs that are not provided with
shelter. We are inclined to the belief
that no ration can take the place of
cood warm quarters for winter.
FALL SHELTER FOR EEP.
During the fall of the year, if It is
practicable, the sheep should have
access to a place of shelter. The
cola, wet weather, which is liable to
be of frequent occurrence during that
season, is very detrimental to the wel
fare of the flock. The additional com
fort will materials increase the
profits that is an important part in

Insect bears a very bad reputation for
divesting the fields of all green crops
it is not remembered that the years
of their visits were particularly mcrc
disastrous for the farmer than some
other years which we can recall. Cer
tainly the fanner should not become
frightened over the possible coming of
this pest, simply from the stories he
may hear. It will be rime enough for
that should they actually make their
HORSES ON ALFALFA.
Alfalfa is found to be fine to feed to
young and growing draft horses, on
account of the high per cent of pro
tein in the plant. The Live Stock
Journal says that draft horse breed
ers west of the Missouri river, where
so much alfalfa is grown, find that
they can grow draft horses on alfalfa
that develop large size and fine action
cheaper than in any other country or
clime. A good draft horse that sells
at S200 costs but little more than a
steer to raise. There are several large
breeding studs of pure bred Percher
ons in Kansas. Colorado and the west,
that have demonstrated the success
of draft horse raisins Alfalfa with
a very little oats and com is produc
ing ton horses in the West cheaper
ard faster than in anj other country.
Thej can breed draft horses out there
and mature the zeldinss fitted for
market, keeping the mares for breed
ins as worth double as much as the
gelaings. And so this plant is found
as valuable for growing young horses
as for other classes of live stock.
These thmss will cause the sowing of
more plats of alfalfa in these cen
tral stares than heretofore, we say
because it has been found wise to first
determine suitable soil for alfalfa.
When this is settled by trial larger
fields may readily be sown

CARE OF MARE AND FOAL.
It is quite common for the farmer
to turn his work horses to pasture
after the harvest is over, with the
thought that the work horse can sub
sist on grass alone if he is not work
ing. This will do fairlj well for geld
inizs or mares without colts, provided
the pasture is good, but for mares
suckling colts it is a very bad policy.
The mare should have her oats just
as she did when working. If she does
nor she will run down in flesh and con
requently in the flow of milk. This
will be detrimental to the growth of
the colt. The way a colt is fed the
first year of its life determines in a
creat degree his future value. It is
computed that in a general way, every
additional 10 pounds added to a draft
horse's weight after he passes 1.400
pounds adds $25 to his value Hence
an thing that has a tendency to stunt
the colt should be avoided
When horses are torn by coming in
contact with barbed wire and the
bleedins is profuse, it may. in many
instances be stanched b folding cot
'on cloth two or three times and
pressing the same against the
wound. Where the part can be bound
around tightly with strips of the same
and kept in place, the pressure will,
unless in verj bad cases, result in
stopping the flow of blood.
Almost every fruit grower increases
his planting of small fruit every year,
and it is just as easy to grow a few
hundred gooseberry and other small
fruits that will layer. The process is
very easy and most every fruit-grower
understands that by keeping the soil
well cultivated about the base of the
gooseberry that the lower branches
can be laid down and covered with a
eew inches of earth and the branches
will root that by spring they can
e removed and planted out in nurserj
row and srown to the proper size for
transplanting into the fruit patch.
Many varieties of our ornamental
shrubs, honeysuckles and roses can be
'ayered during the month of August
md by winter the branches will have
thrown out a mass of fine rootlets. It
's best to winter such plants where
hey were grown and not remove them
'intil spring. In our propagation of
-hese varieties we either twist the
branch or vine so as to break the
?amtian layer so that roots will be
thrown 011 more readily or use a
sharp knife and make an incision in
he lower part of the limb at the point
where it will be buried the deepest in
the earth. It is at this point that the
roots will he thrown cut.
Those hens that moult early in the
eason and get well feathered out by
October or November can be counted
as winter layers.
The sand vetch is now beginning to
be grown to a considerable extent
xore particularly in the central and
-outhern states. The dear price of
he seed prevents many farmers from
-owing it who might otherwise do so.

grown for seed when sown

WHEN TO WATER PLANTS.
A subscriber asks "Should plants bt.
watered during sunshine." Why not if
they need it? The watering of the
plant should be governed by its condi
tion and surroundings. The whole
thing in a nutshell is. water a plant
when it requires it. From my own ex
perience I have never had any bad
results from watering flowers during
sunshine, any more than in dull
weather. During sunshine and bright
weather the evaporation from most
plants is more excessive than in dull
weather, consequently plants call for
more nourishment in the form of
water, and if the plants are growing
fast, and the pots are full of roots I
often find it necessary to water them
three or four times a day. Air, sun
and light are important factors in
building up the plant, and one is not
much use without the other. Water
containing soluble matter is absorbed
by the roots and travels through the
plant as crude sap. passing upward to
the leaves; there it forms a combina
tion with carbonic acid gas, derived
from the air. then by the action of
sun and Iizht is refined and digested.
As the sun plays such an importaat
part in the disintegration (as it were)
of the food of the plant. I cannot see
how it would have any injurious effect
to water plants during sunshine: but
would look at it as a thing essential
if the plants needed it I always aim
to have watering done early in the
morning or about three or four
o'clock in the afternoon.
"When an Iowa farmer is growing
grass, grain and hay, and feeding
those crops to cattle, hogs and sheep,

victions as to the future for Iowa's
Nearly all of the best apples and
plums which are profitably grown in
the northwest, are home grown seed
lings of quite recent origin. This fact
should be very encouraging to one
who is willing to plant seeds,
especially apple seeds. The State
Horticultural society has $1,000 hung
up as a prize for the party who will
produce a tree as hardy and produc
tive as the Duchess, bearing fruit
equal to the Wealthy in quality and
appearance, and which must keep as
well as the Melinda. The prize hangs
high, but some one will bring it down
with an apple seed. We should test
the possibilities of more fruit seeds;
maybe that coveted, prize-taking seed
ling is growing, or can be grown, from
seeds now maturing in your orchard.
Again, these hardy little seedlings are
producing the ideal roots for grafting
and buddinsr. The girls and boys who
live on th farm should be taught
these arts. also, how to grow and save
the roots, scions, etc.. for future use.
The long winter e-enings or stormy
aays could be profitably used in giv
ing instruction and demonstrations in
such work. I trust the professor of
our school of agriculture will prepare
some supplemental readers for our
rural schools on these and kindred

that the present acreage of wheat is
