The bhort croo of colts for the
last few years will begin to tell on
us soon. In some localities there
are only five per cent, of the regular
crop of colts raised, and in no place
more than ten per cent, has been
foaled for the last three years. The
visible supply of hor3eB in 18"4 was
16,000,000; in 1890, 15,000,000, and it is
predicted by good authority that be
fore the close of the year 1897 the
visible supply will be near the 14,-
1)00,000 mark, and judging from
every indication, there is a great
norse iamine close at hand.

In the State of Michigan 'alone -it
is estimated that because of smut
the annual loss to the grain crop
amounts to one million dollars.
The station of that Ktate contends
that this loss could be almost
wholly prevented-. by the, ,Jansen

utes in water at from 180 to 140 de
grees before planting. This .would
cause a. great saving if pursued
throughout the whole country. .'.
The work -done by - agricultural
newspapers, farmers' institutes find

Although land may be used mere?

thicker soil and grow better grass

There are plenty of farmers good
men, too, socially and morally-t-who
are so loose in their business .rela
tions and farm management; that
they are always a generation behind
the times. On the other hand,
young husbandmen have started in
life with nothing but ambition and
determination, and made a fortune.
Farming requires brains and a con
stant use of them. '
It will pay any farmer to read
about his business, for no matter
how experienced he may be, there
are many things he will never learn
from his own ventures. Especially
in such work as dairying is reading
beneficial, because there are so
many problems to work which re
quire scientific attainments, and
which many farmers can hear of
only through constant reading.
In whatever spnere or lire one
may be, the value of an education is
priceless. If the man ts tilling the

learning will raise him better crops
and enable him to sell at better
prices than if he had to depend upon

We can certainly reduce the cost
of pork by reducing the -time in
which we grow it. A 200 pound pig,
well marked with lean, is demanded.
This can be' got ready in six months,
often, and where a butter dairy is
run-on the farm a considerable
greater weight can be procured.
Each year this country is becom
ing more and more a consumer of
mutton; The Sheep kept are of the
English breeds, which hsve been
reared for more than a century upon
turnips and mangolds during the
winter, and if we are. , to maintain
the health of these sheep, and keep
up their weeuiug .propensities, we
must to some extent follow the Eng
lish methods or feeding.

England is said to feed but 16
bushels of grain to her mutton sheep,
while we in America feed 47 bush

The wool and skin sometimes re
main wet for days, and skin diseas

injured, but impure matter is ab
sorbed through the skin to the detri
ment of the mutton. ' Cleanliness is
as essential as shelter and food.
As long as men wear clothes and
eat meat sheep will be in demand,
and it is no ' insignificant .fact that
mutton grows yearly in favor among
meats, and this is especially true of
the vast populations of Australia
and the United Htate; in fact, the
backbone of farming is the breeding
and rearing or sheep.
A token that sheep can be made
to pay better than anything else, is
the fact, even in these times of agri
culture depression, British as. well
