ties divide the entire increase equally.
This contract is also varied by dif ferent stipulations, and in some cases the lessees are required to make good the original stock before the division, and the remainder of the increase is divided. Still a third plan is the two year contract, by which the parties divide the entire increase at the end of two years, and the owner takes back the original number to be made good before division, and in the other the owner stands the loss or half of it as they might agree before the lease is signed. In another there is a provis ion that if divided at the end of one year, the lessee should have one-sixth o' the increase, and if divided at the end of the second year the lessee is to have one-third of the increase. In one case the owner furnishes an out fit, consisting of team, wagons, camp furnishings, etc., and the lessee returns them at the expiration of the lease, paying ten per cent per anmun on their valuation for the use of them. I: nearly every case the contract is made so that it is not assignable, with out the consent of the parties, as it is made on account of the ability of the lessee to care for them. Another con tract requires that the lessee shall not take any other sheep to run or to own any other than the ones covered by his contract. Usually a man is required ._> herd for three to five years before he can lease sheep.—Field and Farm.

Write at once for terms. >. B. PETERSON, CEDAR MOUNTAIN, WN. Prof. Galloway, chief of the division of plant industry of the department of agriculture, who recently made a tour of observation through portions of the drouth-stricken region of the West, re l.orted that, he found some gratifying evidences of improvement in the meth ods of farming, especially in respect t < a greater diversity of crops. Farm en, are not staking their prosperity upon the output of a single crop, as in the years comprising the pioneer pe riod of our history. He was much pleased to note the progress made in the beet sugar industry in Southern Michigan and other Western sections, where beets are supplanting corn as the staple product. Referring to the visible effects of drouth upon the corn crop, Prof. Galloway expressed the opinion that the greater part of the damage had resulted from under-culti v&tion, the appearance of many fields indicating that the farmers despaired of the crop and abandoned it to the weeds. That is a point well taken. Weedy fields are much in evidence, where the crop was given not more than three plowings and laid by too early. The best yields this year will be brought forth in fields that were cultivated early and late. Thorough, persistent cultivation, with a deep and rich soil well mulched at the surface, will counteract the effects of drouth and hot winds —in some measure, at least.
