Studr the Cows.
Dairymen should constantly bear in
mind that the value of a dairy cow
consists in the ability to consume
food at a profit, or, in other words,
her abihity to convert food into milk
in a manner that will leave a profit to
her owner. Unless you weigh and
test each cow's milk and keep yourself
pasted on just what she is doing, you
can never know if she is prontable for
you to keep.
Because one cow will give woreuilk
or will make more batter thai another
is no reason that she is the best and
inost profitable of the two, for she
may be consuming over and above the
o her cow more than enough food to
vffset the difference in her production.
It is also true that small eaters are
not necessarily the profitable oneo; in
iact, it is generally just the upposite;
large eaters, large producers. It re
wains only for you to study your cows
and become acquainted with iheir in
-:ividualities and wants, and in so do
.ing you will be able to jude of their
value in your dairy, putting . %ou in a
position to discard the uuprdtuble

Separate Quarter. For Mr.
Whenever a barn has a iarn base
ment, as all should have, in that
should be fixed the winter quarters
for the hogs. As there isa strong dis
agreeable smell fiom the pigpen. the
basement should not be where other
stock is kept, and of course not near
lhe house. Not only hurses and
sheep, which are dainty in their feed
ing, but even the cow, whieh is less
*Xected by foul odors, will rvfis to
eat food ihat has been where the
stench from the hogpen could get at
it. Yet we have known farmers to al
low hogs to run in the same stable
vith cattle and horses, and then won
der why the latter so ofteu get "off
their feed," and lose flesh. The hog
alone will thrive under sui circum
Ptances, though even the hog in its
effort to keep warm will cr.wd close
around the larger animals to gather
a heat from their bodies. In this way
the hog is apt to be stepped upon or
kioked, so that the practice is not best
even for him. The pigs' winter quar
t-ers 'should be made warm. and also
light, having a wall on the sts6h side
with large double wind6ws is it
through which the winter sunlight
may stream. If all the other sides are
walled tight, and a bunch of chopped
straw is put in one corner, the pigs
will make their nest in that and sleep
at night, but in sunny days they will
huddle together where thi sunlight
can fall upon them. This matter of
nunlight has much to do with the
.healthfulness of breeding: sows and
the successful rearing of their litters,

&ey TiIage of the Orchiard.
Although there are di&erent opini
ions as to the amount of ti!!sae au
orchard needs. I believe that tUor
ough culture is the only satisiactory
treatment, as it not only makes plant
food available, but is the best con
servator of moisture. The o.rchardist
2nnst select a location and soil adapted
to the fruits he wishes to gro* and
put this in best condition before set
ting, by thoro.ugh plowing and lining.
To obtain best resulte, orchards need
both moisture and fertilizers but
more often moisture. As the. heaviest
rainfall usrually oceners skaj, it is at
least neede1. .-eryv etterL +y-ould be
made to pre-m*t it for- tatiire u-.
A ninely divide~d 5->! is e-:,l of

If the 'Co e'n to is i:st-'a cou
tivation Is preferred, while in those'
that are heavier, deeper st.rring is ad
visable. Weeds should Lever be al
lowed to become established. Stir
the whole surface of the orchard thor
oughly about three inches deep every
two weeks. The dryer the season the
oftener stirring should take place.
Plowing for the first few years will
tend to send the roots deeper, where
they will escape injury i' time of
drouth. The whole surface of the
orchard should ba tilled. A careful
man can plow within two feet of the
trees and not injure them.
If catch crops are grown in the
orchards, plow them under early, so
that they will decay as quickly as pos
sible. The chief value of these crops
is for fall and winter protection ind
not spring growth. Old orchard trees
stop growing before midsummer.
Vigorous tillage from then on can
cease so that new growth will ripen
sufficiently to withstand cold weather.
Fall plowing caunot be recommended
for clay soils, as these will puddle and
become lard and stiff. Hoed crops
can be grown to advantage in young
orchards, but even these should not
be planted close to the trees, and the
distances shouldbecome greater every
Tear. After six or eiglt years all
vigorous cropping should cease.

Two Great Aricultural Pesta.
The two greatest insect pests known
to the American farmer,.have been re
ceiving the careful attention of the
Division of Entomology of the United
States Department of Ag-iculture for
a long time. These are tie chinch bug
and the Hessian fly. T'ie department
has prepared and is ab..ut to publish
two bulletins treating- respectively of
the two insects and- suggesting pos'si
ble remedies for checking them.
IThe bulletin on the chinch bug is en
titled "The Chinch Bug; its probable
origin and diffasion, itsihabits and de
vlopment. natural modes and remedial
and preventive measures, with men
tion of the habits of allied European
species." The bulletin w.as prepared
under the direction of the entomolo
gist of the department, -by F. M.
Webster, entomologist of the Ohio
Agricultural Experiment Station. The
Agricultural Department has received
many requests for information about
the chinch bug, and the bulletin is in
tended to meet this demand. It gives
many new facts concerning the life,
history and distribution of the species,
and the whole subject of the practical
handling of its diseases, in order to
assist in its destruction, is treated at
length. It says that few inserts have
caused such pecuniary losses, ard that
no other insect native to the Western
Hemisphere has spreadl its devastating
hordes over a wider area of country
with more fatal effect to the staple
grains5 of North A:nerica. It is widely
distributed over the world and biber
naes in thie adult stage. It is of gre
garious h' bits and:.nigrates in spring,
summer and autun. Whien and whcee
it layvs its eggs, the periodl of incuba
tion, thae diecrcnt stages of develop
ut, the development andi habits of
its young, annual generations and:food
pant.s, are coverediby the bulletin. In
aditon it:rats of the 'influence of
precipitation and temperature on the
insect; its natural enemies. remeaml
and preventive measures and describes
the t~rue and false chinch bugs.
The bulletin says that it would ap
pear that this pest first made its pres
ence known in this country in North
Caroinain 1783, and mentions several
serious outbreaks of the bug in the
West. The estimated losses from its
ravages from 1850 to 1887reach $267,
000,000. It also says that it is be
lieved that the losses up to 1898
amounted to fully $330,000,000. The
hulletin contains nineteen illustra
tions, including maps, showing areas
infested by the chinch bug, and the
probable course of its diffusion over
The other bulletin is entitled simply
"The Hessian Fiy in the United
States." It was prepared under the
diection of the department's entomo
logist by Herbert Osborn, Professor of
Zooogy and Entomsology at the Agri
enlturai College of Ames. Iowa, and
cotans many facts concerning the life
isory. food habits and parasitic ene

ranks next to the chinch bug; as a farm

GOOD ROADS NOTES,
. Waste From Deficient Care.
The best roads are sometimes s0
verely injured by vary heavy storms,
but, as a rule, they do not suffer
nearly as much as either roads which
are neglected or those which are
"worked" in the old-fashioned way.
It is practically impossible to prevent
all injury in case of storms of extraor
dinary severity, but proper precau
tions will reduce the danger to a
There are, however, many miles of
stone roads in this country which are
not fitted to resist heavy rainfalls be
cause (1) the surfaces are allowed to
get rutty and to retain dcpressions
which will hold water; (2) they are
left flat, or very nearly so, and have
insufficient crown to shed water; (3)
grass and weeds are allowed to grow
along their edges until water cannot
run off freely, and the side ditches are
not kept clean and open, and (4) iu
places the earth at the sides is higher
than the road-bed and turns the water
These defects are iaainly due to the
impressio' that a stone roal once laid
needs no attention for a year or two,
and after that only an annual looking
over and perhaps a scraping and a few
repairs. The result is that the roads
deteriorate very rapidiy and are as
good as they could and should be
only for a few months when new.
This method is neither practical nor
economical; it does not keep roads in
good shape, and it costs much more
in the end. Proper road mainte
nance is as important as correct con
struction; we cannot do better than
profit by the experience of European
countries and follow in principle if not
in detail, the ihorough system of con
stant care and repair that has been so
highly developed in France.-L. A.
To Convert the Feinmers.
A shrewd, League member has a
scheme which.he thinks is great for
the purpose of wifning over the farm
ers who oppose road improvement,
first, because they do not like to be
taxed, and, secondly, because they
dislike "them sickle fellere." There
is novelty in his idea, an], provided
the expense could be borne and the
proper labor devoted to working it
out, it would probably be a success.
The plan is to find a few farmers in
every township who live on the roads
which need rebuilding and present to
each of them a bicycle on condition of
their learning to ride and thou attend
ing to their instruction. Understand
ing the enthusiasm that the wheel be
gets, the schemer argues that the few
farmers will first learn how poor their
roads are, then become good roads
converts, and finally convert their
neighbors,who~are oppositionists. The
argument seems to be a sonnd one so
far as the likelihood of the few becomn
ing converts is concerned and also with
regard to the probability of their mau
ing converts, but the cost, even if it
was 'attempted .on .a limited scale,
makes it prohibitive, unless, indeed,
some of the mianufacturers, whose
business it would greatly increase,
co".ld be induced to co-operate. The
scheme has not been formally pre
sented to the League officers and there
fore is not taken seriously.-New York

The next California legislature will
have to consider several bills looking
toward road improvement in that State.
One of them -proposes to classify the

T wenty-eight p;rincipal roads are enu
merated to comprise the first-c!ass;
the most important roads in ech
county will bo set apart to form the
second-class and the remaining roads
to constitute the third-ciaas.
Another bill provides that whe:n five
mies or more of highway of the first
class shall have been properly c-on
structed in any county, the State shall
accept andmaintain it and that $100,
000O shall be appropriated for such
nrpose.s for 18W1-1900 and the neces

circular to farmeirs: I want t> earnestly
ask you to interesit all farmers of your
setitn in gathering waints and riant

side of :he public and private roads
that lead through their respective pian

the growing crep, and is of commerc:a!
value. and after the :imuber becomes
large.~ It is worth co'usiderable mo:ney.
It wi not only pa~y the farmer financi

walnut trees to the acre. At the a'ge of
ten years the walnut trees would be
worth fifty cents a piece. ina other.
words iho ground that had wal nut trees
on it ten years old would cell fur..i an

In twenty years the land will be worth
ten times its present value. ia put

and it costs you comparam.tively n;oth
