-The crop of Indian corn is one of
the most important and valuable in. the
United States. The crop of 1880 was
estimated at 1,717,000,000 bushels; the
wheat crop of the same year was estf
mated at 498,000,000 bushels. It must
be considered the staple crop of the
Western and Southwestern States. In
1880, Illinois- produced 240,000.000
bushels, as against 60,000,000 bushels
of wheat. The acreage of corn in Kan
sas the same year was 2,995,070 acres,
and the product 108.704,927 bushels,
against an acreage of 1,520,659 acres of

It is estimated that nearly 2,000,

annually; one-half of which is used for
printing, a sixth for writing and the
remainder is coarse paper for packing

alone produces yearly 200,000 tons of
paper, averaging seventeen pounds per
head for its population. The English
man comes next with about twelve
pounds per head; the educated German
takes eight pounds; the Frenchman
seven pounds, whilst the Italian, Span

At the mill of Palmer Brothers,
Palmerstown, Conn., the other day, an
attempt was made to put belting on a
large wheel, fourteen feet in dicmeter,
and in order to get the bdt in position
several of the employes got on the
spokes of the wheel to turn it- It was
found impossible to get power enough
in this way, and accordingly the engine
was started before it was "noticed that
one of the hands was still on the wheel.
His perilous position was quickly per
ceived and a scene of the greatest ex
citement ensued. The unfortunate man
owes his life to the presence of mind
which he displayed. Had he attempted
to jump from the wheel his death would
lave been inevitable, but he clung to
one of the spokes with both hands and
feet as' the revolutions of the great
wheel, with its sweep of fifty feet, car
ried him first to the ceiling and then to
the basement of the milL The great
difficulty was in st-tpping the engine so

which wonld allow him to extricate him

tmite a number of trials. Hartford

backs away, pulls the alleged rider off

Sheep's-head, although hardly a flat
tering epithet or term of endearment,
is not regarded between man and man
in this country as an insult of so deep a

compound noun ma- happen to be ad
dressed can only be washed out in blood.
That such, however, is the view taken
of ita German equivalent. "Schafskqpf,"
in the Fatherland is conclusively demon
strated by the following lamentable oc
currence: A few days ago, in the an

acquaintance, the upper story of "whose
duelling was occupied by an infantry
.Lieutenant named iischer, the proprie
tor of a handsome pointer, upon which
he had sportively bestowed the name of
Scharfskopf. The dog was lying
stretched on the door-step as Jansen
came up to the door, and that very mo
ment the Lieutenant, thrusting his head
out of his second-floor window, shouted
at the top of his voice: "Sheep's-head,
come up, will you?" Jansen took the
summons to himself, and, instead of
entering the house, waited by the door
until Fischer made his appearance,
when, exclaiming: "Sheep's-head
yourself," he lent the Lieutenant a
hearty box on the ear. Fischer, who
was in mufti, retorted with a walking
stick, and the result of this misunder
standing was a hostile meeting. Jansen
fired first, inflicting a slightilesh wound
upon his adversary, whereupon Fischer,
in no way ruffled by his hurt, stretched
the too-hasty advocate dead upon the
ground with a bullet through his heart.

Burning' Wheat Straw.
There are but few circumstances that
will justify the burning of straw as it
comes from the machine. Upon all up
lands, or soils indined to be light, and
which are deficient in vegetable mold,
it is better to rot the straw and apply
the same to the most unprcjductive por
tions. Where the soil is o a heavy clay
character, and fall plowing can be done
for the growing of a crop the following
summer, the plowing under of a heavy
coatingof straw vnl) render the soil
lighter by reasons of the drainage af
forded, and richer hy the partial decay
of the straw. Occasionally it may be of
advantage to burn the straw, especially
if weed seeds or tbe eggs and larvaj of
insects are usually abundant. Consider
the matter well before burning the
straw, for when rotted it forms a rich
mold, which is the "one thing needful"
on all our clay uplands, East, West,
"North and South. Farm and Fireside.
Apropos of the question of degrees,
it may be well to -remind our readers
that over 10,000 degiees are conferred

7,000 are conferred by colleges and
3,000 by professional schools. About
200 D.D.'s are made every year. X. Y

A cow reared en the farm where she
is to remain is more valuable to her owner
than a strange cow. She is acclimated.
She is acquainted with the herd with
which she must associate. She is famil
iar with the lands from which she ob
tains her food, and can travel over it
with greater case than a strange cow.
In consequence of these things she will
yield more milk and be more profitable.
Potatoes, on which cows will thrive
well when given with a plentiful supply
of good oat straw or hay, will yield as
large a quantity of good, rich milk as the
richest pastures, and the butter is gener
ally of a rich color, especially when they
are given in a raw state. This root is
rarely given to milch cows, as it has
littleinlluence in increasing the yield of
milk; also, it has a tendency to make the
butter difficult to extract. Elgin Advo
cate. The Chicago Tribune predicts that
the territory included within the north
ern third of Illinois, the southern quar
ter of Wisconsin, and the entire State of
Iowa, in all ninety thousand square
miles, is to be the greatest garden for
dairy products in the world. By actual
experiments, it is said, the fact has been
ascertained that the farmers receive
about fifty per cent, of the commercial
value of what they produce in the form
of grain, but when they use the land for
pasturage and turn their attention to
dairy products they net amount to ninety
per cent., transportation and brokerage
costing but ten per cent.
The business of feeding his herd
every farmer must learn for himself,
with due regard to thrift and economy.
Animals in constantly good condition
need less food than those that are not,
and of this the farmer must judge, re
membering that good shelter in winter
is as important as good food. It is poor
economy to let a cow get into poor con
dition cither in spring or autumn. In
feeding for the dairy I have found that
the best winter feed is good hay, with a
supply morning and evening" of corn
fodder, chopped and mixed with fine
feed and corn meal, saturated with hot
water, and allowed to stand twelve
hours. Prepare the morning feed in the
evening and the evening feed in the
morning, always carefully covering the
box in which the feed is mixed. I have
fed many roots, and all varieties, but
not with that benefit which I expected
except in the health of the cow. Cor.
Creameries and Factories.
Wherever dairying is practicable, it
should by all means be conducted by as
sociated eftbrt in factories for cheese, or
creameries for butter. The housewife
should not be taxed to take care of the
milk from several cows, working it up
into what must almost necessarily bo an
inferior product to that of a well-conducted
creamery. With every appli
nce, and the greater skill which ought
o be commanded in creameries, the pro
duct is well worth the advance it com
mands over the best home-made butter.
The great bulk of butter made in farm
ers' homes is much poorer than it should
be. The milk is almost always exposed
ro unpleasant odors from the cellar, and
too often is set in the cellar, surrounded
by all kinds of fruits and vegetables in
varying stages of decay. From these,
the creamery house is or should be free.
But the most common cause of poor but
ter is sheer neglect allowing milk or
cream to stand too long, not thoroughly
cleaning pails or pans and churning the
resultant bitter or mould- cream. From
the abominable diameter of most of the
butter sold at groceries in cities and vil
lages, I am satisfied that a revolution in
butter-making would be effected if farm
ers' wives would resolutely throw to the
pigs such parts of the cream as had acci
dentally or otherwise become too old
before "churning. Better still would be
more care to prevent such result. The
poor quality of winter butter is not the
result of the dry feed altogether, but
mainly because the milk is kept in close
rooms, exposed to bad odors, and in win
ter is almost always kept too long before
it is churned. Many a housewife can
make good butter from two or three
twice a week who will fSi mi.
twice a Week, WUO Will fail if the Cream
cows, requiring churning: to be done
is not churned oftener than once in eight
or ten days. When cream is "bitter" tc
the taste, throw it away; for this bitter
ness is due to mould, which is poisonous,
and will certainly affect the butter.

Overloading Cows' Stomachs.
When cows are changed from scanty
SS,,? ften PPens the
fS- a I mre -,bera' PP
neutralized for some time, by allowing
them to jrorcre themselves to the extent
of uncomfortable fullness. An excessive
distension of the stomach produces in
flammatory action and impedes digestion
and tends to diminish the flow of milk,
and to impair its quality. Overloading
a cow's stomach invariably gives a strong
and disagreeable animal odor to her
milk, that injures it for butter or for
cheese making, and also healthfulness
for food. Such an overloading is always
indicative of a double loss a loss from
failing to utilize as fully as might be the
flush feed, and a previous loss from a
supply of food insufiident to enable the
cows to give as much milk as they are
capable of giving.
When cows are fed with a liberality
that develops a full flow of milk, they
will not overload with a food so little
concentrated as green grass. The fact
that they do overload is an evidence that
their previous food was too scanty for
Erofit, and consequently that loss has
een endured on account of it. But
when such a course of feeding has exist
ed, and a change is to be made to a
better one, loss from over-eating may be
prevented by admitting the herd gad
vsHlj to the new feed, and suppmnf
them with all the salt and water they
desire. The increase in the new ration
should never be so great as to chan-e
the flavor of the milk. Xational Live

Kaxsab Cmr, Ho., Aug. 17, 1882.
Dear Editou: Realizing the interest your
readers all seem to manifest In being able to
make a good showing to the general public
this year of farm products, &c, and knowing
full well that the advantages offered by the
Kansas Citt Exfositios are far superior to
that of any other In the West, I thought that
while here I would ascertain how the present
Exposition was profrressln?. The wonderfel
stride of this city within the past year necef
sitated the sale of the old fair grounds, and
new ones have been selected, located atth
corner of Nineteenth and Main streets, wheie
hundreds of workmen arc now engaged in
completing the speed ring and erecting the
amphitheater and the various buildings de
manded by the larger number of exhibitors
this year.. Besides these I find that many
large exhibitors have arranged to erect thefr
own buildings. The admirable location of
the grounds and the universal sympathv the
citizens all seem to express are "favorable in
dications of a grand success. A new feature
(and a good one, I think) is the idea of ex
hibiting the fine arts and textile fabries in the
new Emmons Block, a very large and elegant
five-story building, located on the corner of
Ninth a'nd Delaware streets, which will be
open to the public both day and night. Ap-
glication lor space and entries for the Speed
ing, Live Stock, etc., are taxing the man
ager's utmost abi'Ity. A great number of
special premiums, outside of the regular pre
mium list, are being offered by enterprising
citizens, which are intended to make this ex
position more novel and amusinz than any
of its predecesf ors. The ladies of the West
will have a chance to show their skill in rac
ing, riding: and driving; In fact, I bel'eve
there will be so many novel features intro
duced this season that each day will be equally
Interesting as the " big day " of former years.
The people here have all done so weft that
they feel like "booming," not only this city,
but the entire West; and when Kansas Citv
