i For the Farmer i
The most permanent asset in all the
world, eays Texas Farm and Ranch,
Is land, not city lots they are not land,
but merely foundations for buildings
but farm land, the source of nearly all
irealth and the absolutely indispensable
! factor in human existence. Laud is al
so, and for the same reason, the moet
j stable In value of all property. The
history of every financial panic show9
that when property of every, kind
comes tumbling down in value and on
ly money holds its own farm land
comes more nearly mantainlns its val
ue than any other species of property.
Why is this? Because the products of
the soil are necessary to life and must
I be had at whatever cost and because.
no matter what occurs in the finan
cial world, the farmer who owns his
home has an assurance of at least a
living and that he cannot be turned
out of doors on account of inability to
pay rent and being in the country he
Is exempt from the burden of munici
pal taxes, which weigh so heavily on
the city property owner. The city
landlord, unable to rent his property.
must sacrifice it or be badly hurt by
the inevitable tax gatherer; hence city
property decreases In value with every
indication of financial uneasiness. We
would not in consequence of these facts
advise town people to rush out into the
country and buy farms, for most of
them would be as much out of place
there as a "whlted sepulcher" in para
dise. Under present conditions we
must have towns, and towns must have
people, and these people must make
gome money to buy indispensable farm
products with, and then the farmer
must turn the money back to the town
people In exchange for things that do
not grow on farms, and thus the cur
rent of commerce Is kept flowing, car
rying contentment to people in both
town and country. But if one wants
to farm, wants to lead a life of Inde
pendence, with a full assurance that he
will not become a pauper no matter
what may happen in the stock market.
there la but one recourse, and that is
to buy a farm or buy laud and make a
farm; go to work, and. come what may.
after awhile lie can sit under his own
grapevine and fruit tree, and nobody
may make him afraid. The time will
come Is comine when even this ref
uge will be hard to reach, for farm
land will continue to increase in value
on account of its Importance in the
economy of human life.
Commercial fertilizers only benefit
tlie koII for the immediate crop, says
C. L. Ilardman in The Prairie Farmer.
Mv father used to use commercial fer-
tilizers, and tl
le crops then growing
were benefited, but the soil was left in
worse nhnpe apparently than if noth
ing had been applied to it. Commercial
fertilizers are good for the vegetable
carden and strawberry bed and also
aid In securing a stand of clover on
poor land, but further than this they
are detrimental. What most soils need
is humus or partly decayed vegetable
matter, as well as the elements of fer
tility, such as nitrogen, etc. There may
be ever so much plant food in the soil
or rather in the subsoil, but if the soil
lacks humus it will do the growing
crop no gooo, because it is locked up
and needs something to mellow the soil
up and reach down into the subsoil and
bring the plant food up where the roots
of the growing crops can get hold of it.
This clover will do most thoroughly
and at the same time produce a very
good paying crop. If the land is badly
worn out and you wish immediate re
turns from it, apply a light dressing of
barnyard manure. The results will be
very marked. If I had land that would
produce 45 or more bushels of corn per
acre under favorable conditions, I
would plant two crops of corn, one of
small grain, then seed to clover again.
But if it would not produce that much
when the season was favorable I
would take but one crop of corn and
would prefer the crop of small grain to
be rye or wheat rather than oats, as it
Is not so exhausting to the soil. If my
soil was badly lacking in humus, was
run together and baked badly. I would
plow the second growth clover under,
ouierwise 1 would pasture it orf or
mow either for hay or seed.
The permanent pasture will soon be
the most valuable feature of every
well regulated farm where stock Is
kept, and when we establish these pas
tures we will pay close attention to a
mixture of grass seeds which will pro
duce grass the year round. I value the
often t'esplsed orchard grass. It fur
nishes a good bite of grass in the spring
before any other variety has started
j Into growth. Horses are very fond of
It at all times, but cattle like other
grasw better. Land and a Living.
Some sheep will live and thrive any
where. They are cosmopolitan, as we
say, at home everywhere. The merino
is 6nrh a sheep, forming the bulk of
the stock of Germany, France, Spain.
'Australia. South Africa and South and
North America, and the prominent
British breeds enjoy the same happy
adaptation to circumstances, having
been companions of the merinos wher
ever they have been carried and thriv
ing with equal facility. Sheep Breeder.
The Emails Sparrows.
A law has Just been enacted In France,
which is to go Into effect July 1, ex
empting the sparrow from the protec
tion which Is given to insect eating
birds, bum the farmers are declaring a
war of extermination against them.
RULES FOR PARIS SPORTS.j
Coadltloaa For BeaeaU of Annrless
For the benefit of college athletes
and other sportsmen who contemplate
visiting the .Paris exposition A. G.
Spalding, the director of sports at the
exposition, who has Just returned from
abroad, recently issued certain infor
mation for the guidance of the tourists,
says the Xew York Tribune.
The track will be of cinders and will
measure 400 meters. There will be a
soecial course for the steeplechase.
Nobody must touch with any part of
his body that part of the course which
Ilea over the starting point. Every
race will be started by pistoL The 60
and 100 meter runs will be run In a
straiffht line. Each runner will have
his line marked out by a cord placed
on the p round. These cords will be
about 1.20 meters apart.
In the 110 meters straightaway hur
dle race there will be "ten hurdles, nine
motors jirmrt. 15 meters between the
first hurdle and the starting point and
14 meters from the last hurdle to the
finish. The height of the hurdles win
be 1-06 meters. Every runner will
have bia own line of hurdles and must
not deviate from that line during the
In the 200 meter hurdle race there
will be ten hurdles over the course, 15
meters apart, 35 meters from the
start to the first hurdle and 30 meters
from the last hurdle to the finish. The
height of the hurdles will be 90 centi
meters. In the 400 meter hurdle race
there will be ten hurdles. 00 centime
ters in height, 35 meters apart, 4j me
ters from the start to the first hurdle
and 40 meters from the last hurdle to
In the steeplechase the hurdle will
not be hieher than .90 meter. Since
there is a ditch to jump in this race.
the runners may leap It or jump into
the water, just as they choose.
In the high jump and pole vault each
JumDer will be given three trials at
every height. After three ineffectual
attempts at the same height the jump
er Avill be scratched. A trial is not
counted so long as the jumper does not
displace the bar. The ground must be
perfectly horizontal and must have an
elevation of at least one meter in front
of the bar for the high jump and 3.50
meters for the pole vault.
Each of the jumpers In the broad
jump will jump three times; three new
trials will be accorded to the five mak
ing the best jumps. To fall backward.
to recoil after jumping or to go over
the line with either foot constitutes a
trial. In this case the distance jumped
will not be measured.
Mr. Spalding suggests that when
American golfers visit Taris they carry
their golf utensils, as good golf can be
had at Campiegne, one hour and a
quarter rrom Paris. Campiegne is a
historical place and a beautiful spot.
The forests contain over 30,000 acres
and are over 50 miles in circumference.
The course there has IS holes for men
and 9 holes for women.
TUI C DHTD DnCITIOM
Desires of the Burghers, as Stated by
C. II. Wessels.
We have always been willing to
make concessions. We have always
been willing to arbitrate. Great Brit
ain it was that sought any and every
subterfuge to avoid a peaceful settle
ment of the differences in question.
This is not an eniptjr- assertion, for
every one in Bloemfontein at the time
President Kruger and Sir Alfred Mil-
ner met there last autumn is aware of
the fact that had the latter desired a
peaceful settlement it could have been
accomplished. At the time the Trans
vaal was willing and even anxious to
arbitrate, for the Transvaal was in the
right. Britain, on the other hand, had
an object in view the acquisition of
the gold bearing lands above the Taal
river. So the result of the conference
was a foregone conclusion.
Now we are here to ask that Ameri
ca, the home of liberty, help us to re
tain our national Independence, says C.
11. Wessels In Harper's Weekly. We
have always been free despite the con
tention of Britain that she held the
Transvaal in a state of suzerainty.
That state of affairs was abrogated by.
the treaty of 1884. We ask now that
the United States, whose friendship Is
most necessary to Britain's future wel
fare, intimate to Britain that the war
has gone far enough and that the dif
ferences causing hostilities should be
submitted to an Independent tribunal.
We will make any just concession as
to franchise and taxation, but not one
hairbreadth will we deviate from our
determination to be free.
A Hew Thermometer.
A mercury thermometer for high
temperatures has been designed In Ger
many, says the London Engineer. It
consists of a small cylindrical receiver
of steel closed at one end. At this end
a capillary tube of steel one-fourth
millimeter internal diameter Is con
nected. This tube can be made of any
length up to SO yeards, so that the in
dications of the instrument can be seen
at a considerable distance from the
place of which the temperature is re
quired to be known. The capillary,
tube is connected to another small flat
tened tube which is wound in the form
of a spiral. The whole of these tubes
and the cavity are completely filled
with mercury. The heating of the
small cylindrical receiver then causes
the spiral to dilate and to untwist. One
end of the spiral being held and the
other fixed to a suitable gearing, the
indication of the temperature can be
given on a dial which can be seen fon
a considerable distance.
