BEETS AS FEED FOR COWS.
Interesting and Coueluolve Experiments
Made at the Ohio Station.
A tmlletin issued by the Oliio eaqieri
ment fetation gives the results of an
experiment in feeding sugar beets to
milch cows, made last winter, together
with a summary of two similar experi
ments, one made Ly the station in 1889
and one by the farm department of the
Ohio State University in 1S79.
In the last named experiment eight
cows were kept under test for eleven
weeks; in 1889 twelve cows for eight
weeks, and in 1890 twelve cows for nine
weeks, the cows in each case being
weighed daily, as well as their feed and
milk. In each of the three experiments
the cows ate more hay and more total
dry matter when feeding on beets than
on other foods (hay, meal and bran in
1879, eorn silage in lrJS9 and 1890), and in
each case more milk was given from the
beets than from the other foods, but it is
not yet demonstrated that the increase
of milk was produced economically.
For twelve years records have been
k.-pt on the farm now occnpii-d by the
station which show that the average
yield of lieets over this perio't has been
nearly sixteen tons jH r.-u re, iigainst an
annual yield of alnoit fifty-five bushels
of shelled com per acre. LJut a crop of
jifiy-five bushels of shelled com, with
its fodder, will contain nearly twice as
much dry matter as .sixteen tons of lieets,
and these experiments indicate that,
whether fed dry. as corn meal and dry
fodder, or as corn ensilage, the dry mat
ter of the corn crop will lie found about
as effective, pound for pound, as the dry
matter of the loct crop.
It is K)ssible to raise much more than
sixteen tons of lieets to the acre. One
crop of two acres is reported at 37$ tons
per acre, and smaller areas have given
still larger yields, but such crops require
very rich land and thorough culture.
Whether it is jiossiblo to produce a
pound of dry matter in lieets as eco
nomically as it can lie done in corn is not
yet definitely settled, but the probabili
ties are against it.
A oo! F.arly Pear.
A fruit which has attracted attention
as a promising pear of the early sort
is the Wilder, which is generally con
cert.il to lie of lietter quality than most
of the early -ars. and not subject to rot
at the core. Professor Van Deman,
Unit til State poinologist, says of it:
"Among the midsummer pear there is
none that pleases me lietter than this
one. except that its size is rather smalL
Dot. like the Svckcl, what it lacks in size
it makes np in quality, though it is larg
er than that variety. It is a choice
seedling found in Chautauqua county,
N. Y. The original tree was partially
grafted with scions of Hnffum in 1670
when it was young, and would never
have lnie any fruit, except of this old
variety, hart not three of the natural
bra aches lieen left. These bear profuse
ly, and the fruit, when fully colored, is
quite attractive. It does not rot at the

What Apiarists Tell Olio Another.
San Diego county, Cal.. expects a yield
of nearly l.riOO.OOO pounds of honey this
The editor of The American Bee Jour
nal says on the subject of feeding
swarms in a honey blow to forward
storing: When honey can be obtained
from the flowers it is useless to try to
"feed"' the lioes in any other way. They
prefer the fresh nectar from the flora,
and will gather and store it in the
combs, and ent irely ignore all the "fixwl"
you place In-fore them.
A bee keeper tells Colorado Farmer
that "it apjiears now that the Lang-stroth-Simplicity
hive and frames, with
the one-pieceone-K.nnd sections, is
meeting the general idea of a 'standard,.'
All the other improvements can be at
tached." An Iowa apiarist tells in gleanings in
Bee Culture how to water liee. He
says: -l take a tub, tie a piece of burlap
over it. put in a piece of brick or stone
that will keep it down in the center, and
then fill in with water until it comes np
about one-third of the way on the bur
lap, which leaves a large surface fur the
lees to alight on. It is only occasional
ly that a liee gets drowned. One ad
vantage of the tub is it does not need
looking after except occasionally. Try
it and lie convinced."
Professor Cook says on siiaciug: "I
have my frames aliont H inches from
center to center, and do not have them
fixed so as to be just, so far apart. I
have used those that were spaced, and
did not like them. I can space with my
eye to suit me liest. A slight variation
is not objectionable."

A Woman's Diieovety
"Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too by a lady in
this country. Disease fastened its
clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severests tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent.- For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the first dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write
