SCIENCE FOR THE FARMERS
Work Being Done for Agriculture at th

BOZEMAN , Mont. , May 7. ( Special. ) The
% ork for the season at the experiment sta
tion here conducted In connection with thu
Montana State Agricultural college has
fcccn entered upon nnd the plans Include a
lore general scries of experiments than
over before. Ten years ago the person who
talked of scientific forming for Montnnii
\vould have been laughed at , but not so now.
The experiment station here Is under the
direction of Prof. 8. M. Emery , who has with
fclm a competent corps of assistants. This
year the customary grain experiments will
bo conducted , consisting of a variety or
tents of perhaps 200 varieties of grain nnd
needs , and there Will be a great many tests
of seeds nnd plants. "In addition to deter
mining the best grains for Montana , " said
a member of the experiment station force In
peaking of the work for the year , "other
tests will bo made of the proper quantity of
Heed to bow per acre , also what la known as
m pure seed test , a process that will eventu
ally provide each Montana farmer with a
ufllclcnt amount of absolutely pure seed to
Btart him out toward having a stock ade
quate to his own needs. Pure seed Is of
much greater Importance to the Montana
farmer than Is generally Imagined. In our
dry climate , grains when ripe must be har
vested , else they shell nnd fall to the ground.
Suppose one hhs mixed seed , our farmers
usually have In wheat , nnd there Is a vnrln
tlon of from three- days to a week In tha
ripening of the different sorts. If the groin
' 1s but on the first appearance of ripening the
result will bo a loss from the harvesting of
Immntured grain , and If the crop Is held
until the backward ripening sorts are ready
to cut thp first will have ripened nnd shelled
out , so that loss Is bound to occur no mat
ter when mixed grain Is harvested. The
pint grains will bo grown the present year
under what Is known as the Campbell soil
culture system. This system Is attracting
much attention In arid regions , as It Is based
on two theories : Perfect preparation of the
seed bed , to a depth of ten Inches , nnd sur
face cultivation of the crop after planting
This Is not so formidable a thing as It first
appears. First , It requires only about one-
half bushel ! ) of seed per acre , and a man
and a span of smart walking horses will
easily cultivate twenty acres per day. One
great claim for this system Is that It renders
it possible to grow crops without Irrigation.
"Other agricultural lines of experiment
will bo tests of various root and forage ciops ,
peas , beets , potatoes , etc. The cost of pro
duction per pound of pork , mutton and beef.
Forestry mill Fmltn ,
"Tho division of forestry 61 the Depart
ment of Agriculture nt Washington has
made a contract with the officers In charge
of the experiment station , whereby the sta
tion will grow three ncrea of experiment
forest this season , this amount to bo In
creased to ten acres. This work of forestry
will bo of Inestimable value to thu state ,
Os It Is broadening and extension of work
* begun Uy Director Emery' In 1895 In the
horticultural department of the ntatlon.
Good results Imvo come of this work and
considerable stock Is now being placed with
planters throughout the state at cost prices
of shade trees , apples , crab , cut rant , black
berries , raspberries and strawberries.
"Especial prominence Is being given to the
study of the strawberry , as this has great
value to the fruit growers of Montana. In
n mixed lot of fifty-eight sorts , the last
year , -the fruit yield was at the rate of 10-
000 pounds per aero , nnd it Is believed thht
If the best fruiting sorts are selected this
rate of yield can be doubled. Besides test
ing the productiveness of strawberries , they
, re being studied for the purpose of deter
mining whether or not there Is a difference
in the ability of the blooms of different
varieties to resist frost effects. It Is be
lieved there Is , nnd If this point can be de
termined It will bo of great value to growers ,
as In every part of the United States the
frequent loss from late spring frosts is very
great In the aggregate.
"A most Important experiment was In
I-/ augurated In ISO" that of determining the
- effects of crop rotation upon soli fertility.
Realizing the unfairness of arriving at re
sults based upon the yields from small ex
periment plats there were set aside six acres
of land for a six years' rotation test. The
plan of rotation Is , first , wheat , in which'Is
a thin seeding of clover ; second , clover
alone ; third , oats ; fourth , sugar beets ; fifth ,
beets ; sixth , Canada field peas.
"Tho position of these crops will bo
changed each year one place , nnd the land
will receive careful tilth , but no manure
during the six years' test. Should It prove
that ns n result of the test that at the end
of the sixth year each acre is as productive
s It was last year the crop yields grown In
1S)7 ! ) being of average yield nnd quality , It
TV III bo n valuable object lesson to the Mon
tana farmers who believe In summer fallow-
Ing. It Is believed that by alternating the
three great grain crops of Montana , wheat ,
oats and barley , with clover , sugar beets nnd
field peas , that full crops of small grain will
be harvested each jear , nnd If this result bo
attained and the Montana farmer Is shown
that ho can secure In addition to these full
crops of clover , beets , or other roots , nnd
Hold pens , he can In addition to the number
one grain farm which ho has maintained
heretofore also havd an abundance of the
finest feed for live stock , horses , cattle ,
sheep and Bwlno , and ralt-o enough sugar to
supply the million and a quarter pounds ot
sugnr bought outside of Montana each year.
"The analyses of soils , of waters , ot milk ,
of grains nnd forage crops nro being con-
Can be given why Stuarts' Dyspepsia Tab

every form of Indigestion.
They are hi Tablet form , which retains
their gcod qualities Indefinitely , "while liquid

"A very exhaustive study of the poisonous
plants of Montana Is being conducted by
Drs. E. V. Wllcox nnd Jennings. A recent
bulletin of the poisoning ot sheep by lark
spur , by lr , Wllcox , is now being dis
tributed. In experiments conducted and re
searches prosecuted In 1897 it Is most
clearly demonstrated that this plant , which
Is very generally distributed In alt the graz
ing districts of the state , Is very poisonous
to sheep. This was determined not only by
studying the effect of the plant eaten when
green by sheep , but the same , results were
obtained death to the nheep by extracting
the poisonous principles ot the larkspur
and administering to the sheep. Hotter still
a remedy has been determined and mode
of treatment given to save sheep not too
badly affected by the poison. A special edi
tion of the bulletin of 1,000 copies , bound
In heavy mantlln paper , has been made ,
especially for sheep herders' use upon the
range. These will be matted to any resident
of the state Interested In sheep culture.
"A complete exhibit of wheat , oats and
barley , both In the grain and straw , grown
at the station farm , has been prepared for
the Omaha exposition nnd wilt be In evi
dence to substantiate the claims that have
been often made that Montana produces the
finest grain on earth. Lieutenant deorgo
P. Ahern , who has the chair of forestry In
the Agricultural college. Is now engaged In
making a collection of the woods of Mon
tana for the same exposition. The exhibi
tion should have much to do with dis
proving the erroneous opinion that Montana
Is a bleak , tlmbcrlcss region , nnd when
the splendid collection of photographs ot
standing timber of the state Is shown In
connection with the timber specimens It
will do much to give a proper Idea of the
extent and value of the timber resources
of the state.
A recent Interesting addition to the sta
tion equipment Is a 'model greenhouse ,
twenty by forty feet. This will be used for
experiment nnd Instruction. Many of the
vegetables In which experiment work Is be
ing carried on are started under glass and
thus given much advantage over hotbed or
cold frame culture , and In the greenhouse
are ninny plants used to give students In
botany the opportunity to study living spec
imens In the winter season , when It would ,
of course , bo out of the question to procure
out-of-door plants. Here , too , are propa
gated the many ( lowers used to decorate and
ornament the station and college grounds.
Sufficient attention Is paid to flower culture
to demonstrate what can be done in those
pleasant lines In Montana. "

LOS ANGELES , Cal. , May 7. ( Special. )
Deep mining In California , especially l"n the
"mother lode" belt , has proved that It pays
better than uny other. In some ot the
best paying mines In the state the results
were good from the surface down , nnd In
others the upper levels were either bar
ren or contained low grade rock of small
value. In the Gwln mine , in Calaverus
county , only low grade ore was encountered
for the first 400 feet , but between the 400-
foot nnd 900-foot levels $10 ore was pro-
luced. Over J2,000,000 had been paid In
llvldcnds , and the mine was down to 1,200
feet when it was abandoned by reason of
extensive cavca. It lay Idle for nearly
twenty years , when It was reopened nnd
fir > 0,000 was sp.cnt In getting the property
into ; shnpo again and In pushing the shaft
to a'depth of 1,600 feet , it now .has a pay
chute over 1,300 feet In length , and Its
Forty-ptnmp mill Is kept constantly busy.
In the same county the Utlca , down over
1,300 feet , Is n big producer and a constant
payer ot dividends , while the Melcnes , at
1,000 feet , and the Lane & Tullock , at 1,330 ,
are also good paying mines. In Amador
county the Kennedy , now the deepest In the
state , , was at first worked to a depth ot
600 feet on low grade ore , and then aban
doned , because at that time such ore could
not be worked profitably. When it waa
reopened $16 ore was found on the 000-foot
level , and since then It has paid $2,000,000
In dividends and its present value is far
up In the millions. The biggest body of ore
ever found In this mine was developed as
a vertical depth of 2,200 feet. The shaft
Is now down 2,400 feet. The Keystone ,
also in Amador county , produced gold ore
near the surface , and paid several million
dollars In dividends before It was abandoned
at the 1,300-foot level. Then new owners
took hold of It , sunk deeper , and soon had
the property among the big producers again.
The Eureka , at Sutler Creek , for the first
400 feet produced rock that yielded only $2.EO
per ton. It has since , worked to the 2,200-
foot level , made an output of over $15,000-
000. The Zclla , down 1,100 feet , nnd "the
Wlldrnan-Mnhoney , 1,400 feet , are also good
properties. In- Nevada "county the Provi
dence and the Omaha , each down 1,700 feet ,
the North Star. 2,100 ; the Idaho-Maryland ,
3,100 on the incline and 2,200 In the shaft ;
the Champion2.100 , and the Empire , 2,400 ,
have records of millions , and have produced
greater value at greater depth. The Em
pire has been a producer since 1857 , and Its
product shows no sign of diminishing. The
Ilnnner mine. In But.to county , another good
producer , Is down 1,000 feet.

Hcvey' Victory Stllteiin the Stock
NEW YORK , May 7. Commodore Dowey's
decisive victory at Manila has been the
overshadowing Influence In the stock mar
ket all week. The severity of the blow he
has delivered nnd Its demonstration of the
overwhelming superiority of the equipment
of the United States have been accepted
as promising an early settlement of the
contest. The demoralization In the political
and financial affaire ot Spain which have
developed during the week gives a strong
guaranty of the same result. The bullish
sentiment has been strongly In the ascend
ant by reason ot the prospect that the war
element will Boon ba eliminated. Large
professional operators , who bought on a
large scale last week in anticipation ot the
victory in the Philippines , took advantage
of the demand for stocks on Monday mornIng -
Ing to market their holdings at a handsome
profit. All their offerings were easily ab
sorbed. Continued heavy profit-taking and
London selling worked a slight reaction on
Tuesday , but after the Wednesday holiday
London turned buyer and there was another
violent advance. On Friday London turned
a heavy seller on account of the stiffening
rates for money there and unsettled the
New York market somewhat , but thjj rlso
was not effectually checked. A renewal of
gold Imports on easier conditions In the
money market , the heavy foreign demand
for'food stuffs , and the strong traffic returns
by the railroads have nil had Increased ef
fects wlih the subsidence of fear of dnmngo
by war. Prices nro from two to eight points
higher In the railway list nnd gains are
greater in some of the specialties.
