It is well enough to sell oil the

advantage, but with the mares
well, it is a step which should be
considered very deliberately.
There is positively a demand for
good horses which pays the producer
well. When any one denies this you
may be pretty sure that he is not
producing good special purpose ani

should never be allowed to remain

Where the practical test comes for
a cow to prove herself good for the
dairy and for beef at the same time,
she will be found to lack in one or
the other. The requirements and
physical eiulownments necessary to
sustain these two relations are in
compatible with each other. Such
a physiological anomaly as a gen

The practice of growing a weed crop
every year on these lands is one
that cannot be too strongly con
demned. It robs the land ot fer
tility and makes labor for another
year. T he idea that a weed crop is
necessary to shade the young clover
and grass is altogether a false one
We have seen strong stands of clover
and grass entirely killed out by the
abstraction of the moisture from the
soil by a strong growing weed crop
On lands seeded to grass and clover
the mower (set high) should be run
soon as the weeds are tall enough to
be cut with it, and the cuppings
should be allowed to remain on the
land as a mulch. This will protect
the young seeds from the scorching
sun and save the moisture in the
laud for the legitimate crop. Never
let a weed crop seed.
