A SLATTED POTATO BOX.

In the manufacture of the one ptoce.
flections we hare pieces of liasswood left
that will not make sections on account
of bad color, unsightly knots, checks,
etc, in such quantity that we seil, dur

wagon loads of this kind of wood for

we have lxeti puzzling our brains to find
some use for thex refuse piecea of baas-
v. ixxl. Imt nothing has come up to indi
cate a use for more than a very small
rutrt of them until just now. A few
days ao Mr. Warner, the foreman of
our woodworking machinery, submitted
a potato box. made entirely of these
refuse atriiM of liasswood, with the ex-
ci'tlion of the nd pieces. We give you
a picture of it below.
Perhaps I might explain that the refuse
Ktii ksare put on to the buzz saw and
sliced up inch thick. This gives the
slat. The enda of the box are also made
of I inch lumber. With our sneciallv
made saws, we cut the stuff almost as
smeoth as it can tie made with a plane;
and. as the ends are always planed, we
have a box that is nice enough to be
painted if desirable. By usiug long
bar lied wire nails, and putting two in the
end of each strip, w e get a box strong
enough so that the galvanized iron bind
ing can, I think, be safely omitted; and
we can make the price, all nailed up,
complete, only 20 cents, instead of 25,
the price of our former potato box; 10
Inixi-. nailed up, will be sold for S1.85:
U). nailed up. for $16. Material in the
flat, including nails, w ill be $13 per 100.
e .hall crate them in packages of 13
boxes each at $1.5(1 a package, and 2 of
the 12 will lie nailed tip.
The more 1 use the potato boxes the
more I am convinced there should be a
p.Kxl deal of ventilation through them.
eeping our seed potatoes over winter
year, we found a few rotten ones.
iey were invariably in the center of
the loxes. The boxes were raised from
the ground by blin ks, and separated from
ach other by blocks also, so as to allow
a rull circulation of air. ow. these
latted lioxes will give a better circula
tion than the old kind, even if they are
sitnplv piled one over the other, without
nnv Mix-ks tw-tween them at all. From

The New Method of Farming.
There is so much interest in irrigation.
now that the surveys of Maj. Powell and
the department reports prove that it is
necessary in a third of our territory
that Colora.lo items are timely. Field
and Farm, of that state, is enthusiastic
over the increased product of corn and
alfalfa. Those two leading products
mut necessarily lie utilized reduced to
nionev and the fanner can find no bet
ter way than by feeding them to steers.
Those w ho have not the cattle can buv
I hem cheaply of those who have, and
hazard but little rik of making it pa v.
At the present outlook there will be no
fortunes in feeding, but if the farmer
p-t.t a fair price for his hay and grain
product, with a trifle added for his time
in feeding, he should be content. This
can le done cheaply by eood selection
and judicious management.
Let us see for a moment: A well bred
twelve hundred pound 6tetr can be
ought these times for two and a half
cents ier pound, which will be $30. Now
if this steer is put to feeding by the mid'
tile of the present month and kept feed
ing until he has consumed a too and
half or two tons of alfalfa and thirty
bushels of corn, he will have increased
his weight 200 pounds, when lie should
briii); in the market at home or abroad
from $l" to 5. This would give the
farmer thirty-five cents a bushel for his
corn and a ton for his hay. To ob
tain this increased weicht in the steer
he must be sheltered though, and fed
with an abundance must never be al
lowed to go hungry or shiver with cold.
A few years ago we were jeered at for
saying that Colorado would yet become a
grand feeding and beef producing Mate.
Thtwe w ho doubted then do not doubt
now. They have become the advocates
of it. It is patent that we have the abil
ity to feed and fatten large numbers of
cattle can do it as cheaply as any and
at as good a profit as any of the western
state. It is being done. In fact our
farmers will soon be forced to feed or
have no market for their leading prod
ucts, iiiey liave the beat feed in the
world anJ the best climate in which to
feed. It only needs the knowledge how
to feed, w hen to feed and the determina
tion to do. when success will reward the
