Agricultural and Live
The Ram's Horn says the farmer
who tries to earn his bread by the
sweat of the hired man's brow will
have to go without pie for break
fast. Grumbling about low prices for
grain does no good. Supply and de
mand fix the market, and indi
viduals have little to do with it. It
is surprising how much may be ac
complished in the way of economy
and retrenchment when one is
forced to the attempt.
It is poor management to have to
stop in the midst of corn husking
to build new cribs or repair old ones,
aud only the wasteful farmer will
let his corn lie in the field longer
than he must.
There is more danger from sum
mer killing of a newly sown field of
blue grass than there is from having
it winter killed. The best time to
sow, usually, is in September.
One can prosper and be happy in
spite of being a farmer these times.
Make the land produce larger crops,
keep a better class of farm animals
and treat them well, and then learn
economical ways of doing things.
Stumps may often be easily twist
ed out by means of a long, stout
beam of green timber to which a
chain aud hook are attached.
Fasten the nook about a root or in a
notch in the stump. It will be easy
to see if some of the roots must be
first severed. Have a steady team
A Htump can frequently be
wrenched out by placing a long,
stout piece of timber perpendicular
ly against it, with a chain around it
and the top of the stump; a strong
team to a rope from the top will
have a powerful leverage. An ax'
man should be ready to sever stub
Peas have twice as much digesti
ble protein or muscle forming food
as oais, and more than twice as
liiuch as corn. This is a sufficient
reason why they should have a
larger place among our grain crops
and in our feeding. As a forage
crop it would be hard to name any
thiutr better than peas and oats
sown together. Hogs, turned upon
peas when they are nearly ripe, will
make flesh more rapidly than when
on a full com ration. As they will
grow well in cool weather, in fall as
well as in the spring, a late sown
crop will often prove valuable in
supplinienting exhausted pastures
It is not an expensive crop with
which to experiment, and there
should be a more extensive trail of
When the average crop of any
staple is not profiting the grower in
the least there are two remedies
either iucrease the production an
acre, thus decreasing the cost, or
varv the crops and relieve the over
production of said staple, and give
prices a chance to even up.
The difference in the cost of grow
ings bu-hels of corn to the acre or
50 bushels is so slight that it need
not be considered, but the difference
in the value of the product and the
profit from growing it can be deter
mined without very close flgur

with every farm operation in grow
