High Freleln and High Starch Corn.
From this Farmers' Bovlow: Now
that the farmers of Illinois nro turn
3 r , las 'their attention, to growing high
f protela corn for tho purposo of got-
I Has a better balanced ration for
I' stock feeding, It will bo well to con-
,. aider aome of Uio probablo results.
i To groV a largo crop of high protein
' corn vlll rcqulro a soil rich in nltro-
)4 gen. Tbo trouble with most Illinois
. ' farms, whero a proper rotation of
j corn and clorcr or other leguminous
' , klants hnvo not been followed, Is that
. theso lands aro already deficient in
nitrogen, anu 10 attempt to grow a
high protein corn upon them In their
present condition, will likely result
In disappointing yields. It seems prob
ablo that the yield from such landB
will decrcaso as tho protein content
of tho corn Is Increased. It Is now
an established fact that tho corn plant
cannot obtain nitrogen from tho air,
but Is dependent entirely upon that
which Is avallablo In tho soil. There
Is, therefore but ono courso for tho
grower of high protein corn to follow,
and thnt Is to Inrrcaso tho nitrogen
la the soil by growing moro clover,
cow peas, soy bcana and other
legumes, all of which bnvo tho power
at obtaining nitrogen from the air
through the agency of bacteria In
their root tubercles. While it Is es
sential that theso leguminous crops
should Do grown by every corn grow
er. I wish to emphasize tho point
that the grower of high protein corn
will exhaust nvnllablo nitrogen In the
soil moro rapidly than tbo grower of
high starch corn nnd must, therefore,
. have soil rich In that clement to ob
tain tho best results.
Aa fcoders wo want tho high pro
tein corn for our livo stock, but It
seems probablo that a high starch
corn vvould bo less exhausting upon
tho soil and give a larger yield on
light and thin soils. Wo do not know
this to bo truo., nut since- nit plants
get their carbon from Uio nlr It
would seem that tho variety ot corn
containing tho most carbonaceous
matter and least protein would pro
duce tho largest yield In bushels on
thin soils. This Is a point ot much
Interest to tho grain seller who cares
moro for yield than for feeding value.
Wo would llko to hear from Prof.
Hopkins on this point Clayton C.
Penrler, Bureau County, Illinois.
i The Home Market for Meat.

It Is always Impossible to know tho

stock and their products, .all ngreo to

In most ot tho Northern states,
spring Is tho best tlmo to start an
asparagus bed. Tho work should bo
begun ns soon ns tho soil Is dry
enough. Tho ndvuntngo of beginning
early Is to get tho asparagus roots
Into tho soil In tlmo to rccelvo tho
benefit of tho spring rains. Tho bed
may Indeed bo put In late, say Juno
or July, but In that case tho roots
will bo trying to send up shoots at a
tlmo of year when thero Is tho least
supply of moisture. Artificial water
ing Is often resorted to In such cases,
but such application ot water Is often
neglected or mndo too scantily, and
t!o supply that nature gives la thus
much to bo preferred. Moreover. In
tho caso of a largo bed on sandy
toll, tho application ot vator would
by found t. entail an lmmcnso amount
For asparagus tno ground should bo
thoroughly worked. If tbo land has a
decided slope, run tho asparagus rows

plants room enough, ami If they nro

will sometimes bo found In tho soli
ten feet from tho parent stem, so It
Is readily soon that they can uso all

Asparagus Is not n deep rooted plant
and does not require to bo planted
In deep trenches, ns somo seem to
think. In Its wild stdto It grows ou
tho edges ot marshes nnd has to send
lis roots down only n fuw Inches to
i each water. Tho roots cannot llvo
In water and heuco run far over tho
ground near tbo surface. When they
aro planted In deep trenches on heavy
soil tho roots llo In water for weeks

on top of that, then put in tho as
paragus roots and tho dirt. A good
rain camo ou nml filled tho trench.

depth to plant asparagus Is from four

havo It laid out wlfh a vluw of being
ablo to tlo all tho work In that orchard
economically, to bo ablo to gather tho
fruit economically. 1 will mention ono
thing to call jour attention to what I
mean. If there la no other reason, no
climatic reason, why n treo should
havo u long body, I would glvo It a
short body, hecauso by and by you
have got to prune that tree, and every
foot you raise that treo In tho nlr you
havo oxpended energy from tho be
ginning ot tho pruning ot tho treo to
tho end ot Its existence In going up
and down ladders; every foot means
that percentage of extra labor for
every man that goes up and down that
Inddor thousands and thousands ot
times during tho llfo ot that tree.
That means a difference ot 10 per cent
on your expense; It might mako 20 per
cent dirtcrcnco on your exponses.
Thoso aro llttlo things, hut those are
among tho llttlo thlugs that count
so much. So I nay, unless thero
Is vomo other uxcolleut reason
why jou should not do it, I
would advocato short bodies. Another
reason Is thero Is not tho samo lever
age from tho wind on tho short body
that thero Is on a long body. By tbo
samo rulo I would ohorten my limbs
ami keep my treo compact and open
for tho samo purposo; It is oconoml

question of protection tram tho hot

That Is why I wish to modify my state
ment, and what I say may bo opon to
criticism If takou in a dltfereut lo
cality. It pays to have a good dairy barn.

NEVER SAW SUCH LARGE YIELDS.
The Climate la Healthy The Winters
Are Pleasant In Western Canada.
Writing from Stirling, AlborU, to
ono ot tho agonts representing the
Canadian Government frco homestead
lands, Mr. M. Plckrcll, formerly of
Beechwood, Ky., says of Western Ca
ada: "In the first plnco wo wilt say Uiat
tho summer season Is Just lovely In
deed. As to tho winter, well, wo never
experienced finer weather than wo are
now onjoylug. Wo havo Just returned
from Northern Alberta, and will say
thnt wo found the weather to bo very
mild, tho nlr dry, fresh and Invigorat
ing. Consltlo.lng everything wo can
say that tho winters hero aro most
pleasant, healthy nnd enjoynblo to
what thoy aro In tho Stales. Hero it
gets cold and continues so tilt' spring
thoro nro no disagreeable winds. In
South Alhorta It Is somo warmer two
to four Incites ot mow may foil and
In a few hours a Chinook wind comes
along, cvnporatltis tho cntlro snow,
leaving terra firma perfectly dry; in
fact, wo did not believe this part until
wo camo and saw tor ourselves nnd
wo now know what wo herein wrlto
to bo Just as tvo wrlto It. Thero has
not been a day this winter that I could
not work out doors. Farmers here aro
calculating on starting tho plow the
first of March.
"As to farm wages, wo would not
advise a man to como here with the
expectation ot living by his day's
work, but nil who do want a homo I
ndvlsa to havo nerve enough to get up
and como, for thero never lias been,
and may never bo again, such n grand
opportunity for a man to get a home
"As to tho crops, I havo bocn In the
fields bcfnro harvest, saw tho grass
put up and the grain harvestod, nnd I
never saw such largo yields. I saw
cats near Edmonton over six test toll
thnt yielded SO bushels per acre, and I
talkctl to a farmer i car St Albert who
had a field year before last that aver
aged 110 bushels per aero and weighed
la pounds to tbo bushel. All other
crops would run In proportion as to
potatoes and vegetable:), tho tnrnout

as tho abovo from alt sections that I
have visited, ami that has been every
community between tho Kdmonton dis

"As to stock raising, I would ad
vlso n mnn to locnto In this place, or
any plnco, In South Alberta, but for
mixed fnrm I eg I woultl say go up
farther north, say near I.ncoinbo, We
tnsMwIn or Kdmonton, where It Is not
quite so dry anil vhoro thoro is some
timber to bo hail. I will say that no
where have I ever scon a buttor oppor
tunity for a man, whether ho hns
money or not, to obtain a home. No
where can bo found a moro productive
roll, bettor water ami a hotter gov
erned country then Western Canada
affords. Inducements to tho home
cccker are unexcelled. I met two men
near I'onokn on tho C. & B. II. It.,
who borrowed the money to pay for
their homestead, and In four years
thoso two men sold their farms one
for J2.G00, tho other for $3,000. I met
n man near Wotnsklwin who landed
hero with 25 cents six years ago. He
is now worth 8,C00. Tho advantages
for rnnchlrg arc excellent. In fart, I
do not bollcvo this section can bo
bent. Markets aro good; as to living,
a fnmlly can llvo as cheap hero as
they can In tho States. The nverage
yield of oats In this neighborhood last
year was 70 bushels por ncro; wheat
averaged 35, barley 40, nnd tho beet
crop was good. In consequence of
tbo successful cultivation of tho beet

erected at Knymond, suvou miles from
"In conclusion I will say that N. W.
T. from Manitoba to n long distance
north of Kdmonton producos mostytsjfi?
derftil crops. Lakes and rlversnAonnd

that this Is unquestionably tho coun
