Ji'lUtln 03 of the Knnsas agrloul

oxrsrlmentn, with the following rosultB:
First: In tho comparison of whont,
corn and red Knfllr corn, ns fattening
food for hogs, tho whont proved to bo
tho most effective, followed closely by
corn: red Kaffir corn, nlthoitgh n good
feed, was not equal In fattening qual
Itles to either of tho others. It ro
quired respectively 4.11 pounds of wheat
nnd 1.38 poundn of corn to praduco a
pound of gain, while on rod KnIUr corn
It required G.1C pounds to produce tho
snmo result, but It should bo notedIn
this connection thnt tho oxperlmont
was carried on during tho coldest por
tion of tho winter nnd thnt tho hogs
woro confined strictly to tnoso feeds.
Under fnvorablo wcathor the results
would doubtless havo boon muoh bet
tor, nnd In liko manner, these grains
might hnvo given different results If
fed In Judicious mixtures with other
sultnblo hog fcod.

A Toxaa paper has taken up for dls
otiaslon tho quosMon ns to whothor It
pays stoakmon to sldebrund their cat
tle. The cniiRo for tho dlscusiion Is
the fact that sldobrandlng has a ten
dency to depredate tho valuo of hides.
Tho sldobrand, It la clnlmcd, cobIb tho
cowman (2.75 In tho vnltto plnoed on the
animal nt tho stock pon. Tho more re
movod tho brands aro from tho renter
of thn hides tho hlghor the price paid
and consequently the better figure the
animal brings. For Instance, a steor
branded an the ncak Is worth $3 moro
than a steer brandod on tho Bide.
Leather manufacturers rooommond that
oattle, If brandod nt nil, be branded on
the Jaw, inek or low on tho shoulder
or thigh. This Is n matter which has
had the attention of but few cattle
men, nnd yet Is worthy of careful eon
alderatlon. To show that no attontlon
has been given to tho location of the
brand when taken Into connection with
the probable difference In valuo of the
hide, one has only to glance over any
brand register la n& that some brands
cover almost the wholo animal, render
ing the hide prnctleally valueless.
Save the Screenings. Why should
the farmers be content from year to
year to sell grain without cleaning Itr
When thoy do so put It an tho market
they give the screenings away. In oth
er words, they give away millions or
bushels ot good teed. This feed oould
be used In making beef, butter, pork,
mutton or wool. It the grain wore
cleaned nt home, tho screenings would
not need to bo drawn to the market.
Tho farmer would still havo a lot of
grain to teed his stook, even though he
continued the vory bad prnotlee ot
growing grain and selling tho name
from year to year. Moro fanning mills
are wanted In all the Nortuweat.
