W6St. many education in road building should deal largely with the.matter of proper location, easy grades, proper drainage, the economical use of the material at hand, as a large percentage of the roads were now and for a long time would be, earth roads; the proper < onstruction of earth roads was a very important problem. He paid a high (ompliment to the intelligence and good common sense of the average farmer; saying that any general scheme for road improvement that would receive the support of the farm ers must be fair, practical, and free Horn any form of jobbery. The "views" of roads "before and after," as shown and explained by l>oth Mr. Abbot and Mr. Eldridge, were practical and convincing. They dem onstrated beyond any doubt that money intelligently expended in building good roads is an investment that pays big dividends. WE AIM TO PLEASE ihe traveling public and believe w...

.•., ..•.••• ...W.fT; . Vol. XX. No. 22. ALFALFA ON OVERFLOW LANDS. By Prof. W. J. Spillman. We are continually learning new things about alfalfa, so that it be comes necessary occasionally to revise our ideas. During the past few months a number of well-authenti cated instances have been brought to light where alfalfa is thriving perfect ly this year, although it was flooded many feet deep last winter. It. E. Smith, Grayson county. Teyas, tells me that part of his alfalfa field was covered seven feet deep by wa ter, and that a large amount of sedi ment settled on the land. As soon as the water went down and the ground became dry enough to work, he went over the field with a disk harrow and the alfalfa showed no ill effect from the flooding. C. M. A. Smith, Onondaga county, New York, who lives in a section where alfalfa has been grown for many years, sends tne a de ailed ac count of a field of alfalfa in his vi cinity which was overflowed in 1902 to the depth of a foot or more, and ...

4 Horticultural Notes By W. F. WALDEN. The writer attended the Farmers' Insti tutes at Wenatehee, Waterville and Chelan. Prof. N. 0. Booth, of Pullman, and I gave our attention to the various phases of horti culture, while Dr. S. B. Nelson, of Pullman, and C. h. Smith, of Minnesota, took up other departments of work in which the farmers are interested. The two professors from Pullman and Smith of Minnesota are all very competent men and did most excellent work in these institutes. Prof. Booth lec tured on the planting of orchards and prun ing, while to me was assigned "Orcharding for Profit" and the "Codling Moth." Prof. Booth is a very competent man and gave us some splendid lectures. In talking on prun ing he showed the nature of tree growth and made it very plain why certain kinds of pruning should be done and why certain kinds should not be done. To me his lec tures were both instructive and entertaining. He is a most genial companion for such work as that in which we were engag...

maintenance fee of $1.50 per inch. We borrowed ten more shares this year. We have three acres of alfalfa, one of bromus (steep hillside, for pasture—too steep for tillage), and about seven acres of orchard, which will bear some apples next year, and the peach trees have borne three crops of fruit. We have a small nursery of app c trees, root grafts, put in this spring—about 15,000 of nice size. They are Rome Beauty, Jonathan, Stayman Winesap, Winesap and Missouri Pippin. We wish to set out the other nine acres in trees. Now what selections of the above named trees would you advise planting, as a commer cial orchard? Please give any other suggestions you deem of value. An answer to this will be greatly appreciated. Yours truly, A. A. WRIGHT. Chelan County. In reply to Mr. Wright's inquiries, I would say that I am not able to throw any light on his water condition.

6 WOULD MAKE THEM RANCHERS. The Montana Stockman would solve the Butte situation by inducing the mining population of that city, now dependent for profitable activity on the whims of certain copper magnates, to go ranching. It says: "Some one says that a miner is helpless at ranch work. We don't be lieve it. We know better. When the Flathead valley was opened a major ity of men to take up lands were min ers from Butte. Some of the best farms in that great valley are owned by men who never did any work but mining till they took up the home stead or pre-emption. Some of them had never harnessed a team, but they learned. They did not make much j headway at farming for a year or two, it is true, but they lived as well as' they ever did at mining, and they built j up homes that are today wor;h from, $5,000 to $20,000. Some of them un derwent some hardships in the first years of land making and home build ing, but we have never met one who returned to mining voluntarily. "This paper does ...

MACARONI WHEAT. Hy Prof. Jas. H. Shepaid, South Dakota Ex periment Station. The rapidity with which macaroni wheat has sprung into prominence is phenomenal. It must have some im portant characteristics to recommend it to growers, otherwise it would have progressed more slowly. Some of the more prominent of these character istics are its hardiness, superior yield ing qua.ities and resistance to rust and smut and drouth. All these make it a surer crop than ordinary wheats. At the same time macaroni wheat has its limitations. It does not flourish to its full capacity where the rainfall as a rule is abundant during the grow ing season. It is true tnat it will grow in such localities, but it is apt to suffer a diminution in is protein con tent and in those characteristics which render it valuable in its own sphere. As with all new crops whose proper ties and characteristics are not well understood, there are many erroneous ideas aiioat in regard to macaroni wheat. In the first p.ace, it ...

8 that the capacity will not be reduced one-half. And I believe where suffi cient power is available the output will not be curtailed at all. The best grade of macaroni is not made from the patent flour, but from "semolina" which corresponds to the "middlings" produced in milling spring whea s. I know of no mill now mak ing semolina in this country. Here is an opening for fresh enterprise. The number of mills making maca roni patent is now slowly increasing. A way will open for the consumption of the macaronio wheat crop. USING BISULPHIDE OF CARBON. During the last month, we have re ceived a number of inquiries from our readers asking about the use of bisul phide of carbon in ridding store rooms, where grain is kept, of vermin, how it should be used, and what it is. Bisulphide of carbon is a colorless liquid which forms a volatile gas which is highly inflammable. The fumes of this gas are poison to animal life and in this lies the value of the liquid in exterminating vermin. The whe...

SILAGE. Its Special Value for the Up-to-Date Dairyman. C. P. Goodrich Hefor*» Wisconsin Farmers' Institute. Silage has a grea'er feeding value than the same forage would have if cured by drying in the field, because it is more digestible. There is more to be gained by siloing corn than by siloing crops that have finer stems that can be more quickly dried. There is usually great loss in field curing the fodder part of corn. It takes so much time that much of the leaves and finer parts become weather-beaten by rain and wind, and are wasted; and also much of the leaves are frequently, when very dry, crumbled up and lost by handling. In drying, the thick stalks become woody and indigestible and are not eaten by stock. The ears of corn, if well matured before frost, cure well in the field, but even these are better if put in the silo at the right stage, because they remain soft and are more easily masticated and better digested than if dried. Of the fodder part of the corn, one-half of i...

required, or they are too tired mental ly to become sufficiently interested. That man who is compelled to buy all his winning birds soon tires of the business, and it is not a matter of sur prise that he does. Much of the pleas ure and most assuredly a goodly por tion of the profit come from breeding the winners ourselves to sell to the other fellow. This does noi imply that in all cases the buyer lacks wis dom. The beginner must purchase the foundation for his flock and the experienced breeder should make oc casional purchases when general con ditions make them advantageous. There are too many recruits, who in the matter of breeding, expect nature to reverse her laws, and when they begin lo learn that it requires brains to breed standard bred fowls, there comes a sudden lack of enthusiasm. Their ill luck is attributed to every cause except the right one, and they drop out. So it goes. If breeding fowls was such a simple matter, 95 --point birds would be worth $1 each, when as a mat...

12 SIMPLE DAIRY RULES. By Mr. 1.. KngK'iiKinn. of the Rockford Creamery Co., North Yaktma, Wa.-ii. 1. Aim io have 38 to 42 per cent, erram. First, rich cream wil' keep better, and, second, the creamery does not want any skim milk. You need all the skim milk for your hogs, caives and cnickens. 2. In winter time it is harder to separate milk than in summer time; consequently, be sure that your milk is warm enough and run your .-epa rator a little taster than usual. 3. Be sure that your separator is level. 4. Keep your separator clean and look especially lor the skim miik tubes. 5. Use only the very best of oil and clean occasionally all gearings with petroleum. There is a drawback connected with the separator, viz.. Farmers lose sight of the test of their herds. Wiiiie we admit tnat some farmers will soon find out whether their cows are paying or no., there are others who lay the blame on the separator or to the creamery. Don't forget that you can't get a 40 per cent, cream out of mil...
