No crop hns boon grown or gathered
in the lust ton years which has boon
watched with such Intense anxiety by
the business world ns will bo the crop of
180) ) , Rtvys tlio lowu Homestead. The
elements that nro peculiar in the sltua-
tlon are mninly two ; the fact that the
country IH bttror of food products of all
kinds than It hits boon since the wtir
( when the amount of food consumers ,
man and beast , IH taken into considera
tion ) and tlio fact that there la an un-
tmunl difference between the price of
food products in the crude form and the
finished products in the shape of meats.
It is but a year slnco the amount of
grains of till kinds peeking a market was
so great that there was a general cry of
overproduction. Low as prices of stock
were thov furnished a bettor mar
ket for grain , and especially corn ,
than the commercial centers , and
the result was ti vast increase
of hogs. The drouth of last
season , cutting short the corn , oats and
wheat crops from one-fourth to one-third ,
has compelled the farmers to feed this
high-priced corn to hogs , -vhlch , by the
very Immensity of tliolr numbers and
the necessity of rushing them to market ,
has dopi ossod llio price , and the result
has been the depression of all moat proo
ducts to n point that has Tobbcd the
stockmen of all the profits of. the advance
in small grains. While the last has
been a good year for farmers who had
good , or oven fair , grain crops and sold
them in a crude form lor shipment or
homo consumptionit was not n good year
for the farmer who , to continue his sys
tem of farming , must food lilft grain nml
hny to stock which ho wns compelled
to sell at a low price. In about
six weeks or less stock will bo on
grass and stock farmers will breathe
more easily. If the crop of grain and
grass for 1891 should provo u good one ,
there is a fair chance for all classes of
farmers to mnko money. If it should bo
another ycnr of short crops , the ovor-
markotlng of stock and seeming over
production must continue , and with the
usual result of low and unprofitable
prleeH. It is therefore to the Interest
of farmers of every class to strain every
nerve to produce a full crop of the
grains and grasse's ,
There is every indication now that the
acreage of corn will bo very large. The
eamo may bo said of flax , and a largo
per cent of this will bo grown on now
lauds. Haws lands in northern Iowa ,
and wo presume the same is true over
all the natural llax region , having been
passing out of the hands of speculators
into these of actual cultivators very
rapidly , and there will bo in this a large
increase of the total acreage. 'Iho in
crease of corn acreage will como from
the plowing up of old pastures anfl
clover fields , and this will bo to a great
extent equalized by the seeding down to
grass in connection with spring grain of
largo areas in western Iowa , Nebraska
and Kansas. In southern Iowa and in
Missouri and Kansas winter wheat has
encroached on the lands heretofore
sown to oats and spring wheat , and if
this should bo in good shape by May 1 ,
there will bo a decrease In this respect
both in spring wheat and oats.
Wo have now reached a point when
there can bo no great increase in any"
kind of grain except flax sown mainly
on now hinds which does not involve a
decrease either in some ether grain crop
or in pastures and meadows. Any im
portant decrease in these involves a decrease
crease in the number of farm animals
or else an improvement in agriculture ,
which can at best bo but slow. There
can therefore , witli an average crop , el
even a crop above _ an average , bo no
ovor-nroditotlon this year in any line ,
nnd tlio farmer can plow , sow nnd reap
with a hotter promise of reward than for
many years past.
Ot her industries will watoh the crop
"of 1891 with an interest at least equal to
that of the farmer. Railroads tire pray
ing for a big crop as they never did be
fore , and if their prayers are availing'
with that Power that orders ) all the sea
sons , the barns and corn cribs will bo
filled with plenty. Manufacturers and
distributors are equally concerned in the
magnitude of the farmer's crop. In fact ,
national prosperity for a year and a hall
to como depends largely on the promise
nnd performance of the crop odS'Jl. '
Two years experience with Katflr corn
has convinced mo of its great value ,
writes G. A. Lnutlo in the Kansas
Farmer. Under the' most unfavorable
circumstances of planting and culture ,
where corn would have failed ontirolyit
has boon a paying crop. It will yield a
larger return for labor on poorer soil
than any crop of which I know.
Any soil that is worth farming at nil
will do. Prepare as for corn , but the
surface should bo well levelled. Plant
April 1 , if it can bo done ; if not , as
early as possible before Juno 1. Drill
with corn drill three pounds per
acre. to oDtain best yield of
eocd. To obtain the best yield of
fodder and a good yield of seed , four
pounds may ho used. Cultivate as taste
nnd time admit ; the moro thoroughly
the better , but unliKe corn , it will not bo
a failure even If neglected.
Wo cut with a I'roston corn-cutter.
Two men cut and shocked three to four
acres per day. 1 estimate forty bushels
per aero , can bo easily raised on ordina
ry Kansas upland , and that if well plant
ed and cultivated It will never fall much
short of this yield. I bollovo It would
pay best to top the heads and thrash
when well cured and convenient. The
standing- fodder can , after it has been
topped , be cut with an ordinary self-
rake machine nnd shocked as corn , \ory
largo shocks being best.
i The fodder Is undoubtedly the bcstand
most abundant produced by any crop
I ! which has any value ns a gram producer.
Compared with corn fodder , It 1ms these
s' ' advantages : It stays green until killed
by frost , thus giving a longer time , and
! cheaper labor to cut It ; the stalks are
l shorter , but have fullv as much foliage ,
consequently there Is loss labor In hand
ling : ft does not break so badly in dry ,
windy weather ; it keeps much better in
shocks ; and last , but not least , it will
yield three times tig much feed per acre.
I cannot BOO any indications that the
grain is inferior to corn , except when fed
in the fodder to cnttlo , when it IB very
.imperfectly digested. Having plenty of
liogd with the cattle does not entirely
remedy the loss , ns it shatters badly ,
and the seed bolng so small , there Is
necessarily BOIIIO waste from tramping
In the ground. The remedy plainly is
to thresh and grind it.
Fed to hoga whole , it aoosvory wol 1 ,
but would probably bo better if ground.
Four well-grown pigs , three months old ,
wore fed on Knlllr corn and water ex
clusively until they were eight months
old. They wcro them put on our corn
nnd wutor. At nlno montliB nnd twenty-
suvon iluys they were marketed , weigh *
Ing 347 pounds cnch , nnd were by Jar the
best looking hogs I enw IUJIOHB n la rgo

hogs were novcr cotiflncd in a small poti ,
however , but hud plenty of green food.
I now Imvo a lot of pfgs on ono-hiilf food
tl.nt nro equal to any corn-fed pigs I
I Imvo no hesitancy In urging the
planting of this crop ; but especially
should those plant liberally of It who nro
BO situated as to not rnlso Inreo nnd pav

Worm * In llofl.
It is generally consldorud that , no
class of domostlc animals Is troubled so
much with worms as hogs , nays n writer
in the Nebraska Farmer. For this rea
son many-consider It good mlvlco that
when the hogs seem to oat well and yet
ilo not thrive , it will bo safe to doctor
for worms. \
The principal syn 'Urn' ' are a voracious
cious appotlto without a corresponding
pain in ilcsh. In many cases the animal
couirhs , runs restlessly nb'out and often
utters squeals of ) > ; iln. The best remedy
is turpentine , which can bo glvon In
milk or slop ; or kerosene glvon the
same way will usually destroy thorn. As
with nearly or quite all ether discuses
with which hogs nru allllcted , Ills easier
us well as more economical to prevent
than to cure , and with worms the easiest
plan is to see that they have all the salt
they can cat. If hogs are loft in a place
whore they can help themselves to salt
and ( ashes , there will usually be very lit
tle trouble with worms. However , if the
turpentine frills to plvo relief , give a
third of a tonspoonful of sanlonluo every
night and morning for two or throe- days
k their feed. It will usually thoroughly
destroy < ] i the worms ; this should always
be , followed by a bri&k cuthartie , or it

C IAHA , March 28. To the Editor of
THU HUE : I would like to reply through
the columns of your paper to numerous
inquiries from all over this state about
seed potatoes , their culture , cutting ,
planting and varieties.
Cut your tubers three days before and
in some varieties more , before planting.
I prefer lurgo tubers cut with two or
more oycs in each piece. Cut as near
round as possible , as a small round piece
has inoro substance than a largo llat
piece. With early varieties plant your
pieces fourteen inches apart and no
more in every third furrow as you plough
your land , taking good care to have your
droopor stoop his back and slick the
pieces in the side of the furrow securely ,
so the team will not displace the same
while walking in the furrow , and not
more than Uireo inches doop. After
planting do not disturb the soil by bar-
rowing or otherwise until you can see
the rows of vines above the soil. Then
harrow well , the team being kept
astride of the drills. D.on't . ' bo afraid of
harrowing or injuring the young vines.
Late in the evening or early in the
innrnlnrr when the vines nro closed
would bo the best time to harrow. In
ono week or less after harrowing take a
corn plow and po through the rows ,
throwing the soil well up against the
vines. It won't hurt If _ , some of
the vines got covered. They will soon ,
como up again. Keep ploughing until
the vines got so largo that they cover
In the matter of varieties , there is not
at present nn early potato which yields
BO sure n crop as the early Ohio ; that is
if scad is raised in some soil different
from that which you havo.
I never hoe or pull weeds in a dry
time. Pull weeds while ralnincr. Lake
potatoes don't do so well in Nebraska
any more. Early or intermediate vari
eties are the surest crop. Lake pota
toes require to be planted further apart
than oarlv ones. Drills should be about
three foot and no less apart. A potato
that has boon nearly frozen in a pit or
collar never makes good sized potatoes.
But potatoes that got heated in sacks erin
in a heap or that are exposed to the sun
in the Hold nro not good. They will all
grow , but the sprouts will bo so delicate
that the vines will bo the sumo , nnd n
small vine Indicates a.small potato.
I change my seed every two years.
If your land is rolling change seed with
some ono for potatoes that were raised
on low land. Seed from the north will
do bettor than seed from the south or
east seed from the west will not do well.
I plant iny crop early , intermediate
and late , on account of the uncertainty
of the rainfall. I grow on an average of
forty acres yctirly and I have notliiid a
poor crop for the past eighteen years. 1
have no trouble with the the potato
bootlo. I use pavls green , ono table
spoon full , well stirred in two gallons of
water and Bprinklo it on the vines in
the heat of the day , with a bunch of
feathers tied on a stick. I wait till
the young beetle 'makes . .his ap
pearance. I don't trouble with the old
ones , as they do no harm. Keep your
water well stirred. If you poison it too
strong it will injure the vines ; if too
weak , your labor goes for nothing.
In the matter of cultivation in a dry
season. Hat drills will do bettor than
those that are drilled up. Some varieties
ties of potatoes grow down deep , and
some near the surface. Some soils will
do to hill up , and some will not , but as a
rule I hill my drills , for by so doing *
hill all woods and grasses.
Potatoes in the fall should bo taken
up If possible dry uud put in pits for two
weeks before removing to collar or for
shipping. JAMKS WALSH.
MONHOK , Green County , Wis. , March
23. To the Editor of THU BKU : I re
side at Wescott , Custor county , Nobnis- -
ka , but being hero on a short visit , ]
think I can glvo your farmer readers in
Nebraska some points that might benefit
hem. This county is In the southern
tlor of counties in this sttito and loss
than one-fourth the size of Ctistor couti'
ty. The leading industry here is dairy
ing , every farmer bending nil his ener
gies to produce the largest quantity o
milk , which is sold to cheese factories at
from 05 to80 cents per cwt.for the spring
nnd summer months , nnd at $1 for the
winter months. The past winter having
boon mild many factories have boon run
nil winter. The milk IB made up into
Swiss , brick , limborg nnd American
chceso , nnd is shipped to all the western
states , mining towns and the Pacific
coast , whore it sells readily at remuner
ative prices , The past boason has boon

ilnd on Inquiry that tharct Is about ono
hundred and forty factories in this small
county , with 'an average of MO COWB to
each factory , with an output ot about
fifty-six thousand pounds of cheese each
yearly , which , added to the product of
the largo milk condensing factory here ,
swells the receipts to over $1,000,000 for
the yearly milk product of this small
county. The president of the First
National bank here Informs mo that
fully the above bum pusses through his
bank yearly in payment for cheese
alone. I think those facts should com
mend themselves to the attention of
Nebraska farmers. Our stuto Is
in about the same latitude
ns Wisconsin , and this Industry
cannot bo Injured by lullstorms or
wholly destroyed by drouth , and when
grass grows and water runs , ether things
being equal , dairying con bo carried on
successfully. Certainly winter dairying
can be carried on moro profitably In Ne

cheaper grain and hay , and climatic of-

The methods that obtain in the con
duct of experiments by Sir John 13.
Lawes at Kotlmmstoad , nnd under the
auspices of the Royal Agricultural so
ciety of Woburn , England , might bo
profitably followed in this country.
Those experiments are not mtulo on
small plats , nor for n single year , but
year after year the same lands , In largo
areas , arc used for the same work until
the results acqulro till the force and ac
curacy of a mathematical demonstration.
Ono result ol the barley experiments
have been to show an averaged , produc
tion on unmanured land , for seventeen
years , of fourteen and ona-olghth bush
els per nero per annum , while with com
plete fertilizers the average production
through the same poilod has been forty-
three and five-eighths bushels per aero.
Ono advantage in sheep growing Is
that they bring In money from April to
August , often n season during which
farmers have nothing to turn into money

The objection to feeding fowls almost

grain , and particularly corn , UOA iu the
fact that it is not sulllciontly bulky nnd
is too fattening. It thus brings on n con
dition that Is not favorable to egg pro
duction , nnd that also predisposes the
fowls to disease.

It will bo news to many to bo told that
there arc COO men in California thor
oughly equipped with the best arms and
accoutrements , rcUy for the wqrd of

says the. Chronicle.
The "Grand Army of Labor for Llbnr-
ty and a Republic Universal and Vigi
lant" is the elongated name of the asso
ciation which is briefly spoken of as the
Army of Liberty. Its history is inter
esting. The nucleus of the army was
formed by the soldiers of Sheridan's
command. They were sent to the Texas
border , it was supposed , to aid in the re
storation of the Mexican republic and
the deposition of Maximilian. Their
mission suggested the formation of a
standing army , whoso aims and objects
should bo the promotion of commerce ,
the defense of the rights of sailors , the
propagation of republican ideas and
an ovor-watchful eye and helpful
hand for the destruction of monarchies
and the overthrow of oppressors of any
kind. Ono of the Incidentals of the ob
jects of the formation of the association
was the resurrection of American com
merce , which England and Franco had
combined to do away with during the
war of the rebellion. This association
is pledged to propngato republican
ideas everywhere. Its members are of
six classes. It has 1,600 branches allover
over- the world , of which about forty
are In the United States alono. There
are 200 clubs in California and sixteen
of these clubs nro in San Francisco.
The classes consist of "students , " om-
oraclng those who have given their no *
crot approval of the objects of the army ;
"comrades , " or those who have signed
the rolls nnd agreed to aid when called
upon , and who are guaranteed good po
sitions wherever the army has control ;
"commanders , " including those who
have enlisted ono or moro raon , and so
are entitled to precedence in the matter
of appointment to public olllces. The
fifth and sixth clashes consist of "sol
diers of the life guard. " Those are
military men who nro llrst called upon ,
and it is from them that the COO men
now awaiting the word of command
have boon selected. They are a well
drilled , finely equipped body of men ,
whoso watchword is , "Help for the op
pressed wherever found. "
For nfow years after its formation the
army foil into dlauotudo , but homo years
ago it was thoroughly revived and has
been in active operation over Binco al
ways , however , In the sumo secretive
manner. In addition to the many ob
jects of the association are others of an
indollnito nature , including the ultimate
formation in the distant future of n
world-wide republic which shall own
and control all railroads and steam and
sailing vessels and operate something _
like the Topolobampo colony. At i
present , however , the most significant
portion of the colony is Its military sec
tion , which Is over ready to light for the
principles which all the inombora are
supposed to believe in strictly.

sisting ot a shield , from which la hung
