The feeding of wheat to animals has become so general throughout the South that requests are now constantly receiv ed at the agricultural department for information as to the best methods of feeding that grain to cattle, hogs arid other animals. In discussing the sub ject i« an Let a« Have Practical Irrigation. The following is from a correspondent of the Pioneer Press writing from Athol, S. D., urid shows the great benefit ar tesiau water will be to the state when properly applied in sufficient quantities: One of the most important questions before the coming legislature will The abov® are only three of more than a score of testimonials published by Mr. Fassett. Mr. Fassett-states that theex pense of a three-inch well, which would naturally tlow say 900 gallons per minute, should coot not to exceed $1, 700. and a four and one-half inch well, at a cost of about $2,000, should irrigate from 040 to 1,000 acres. One experiment shows that the flow taken direct from the well, 21 days' flow, 17 1-2 days' labor, flooded 100 acres from to 12 inches. 'this year there have been til teen wells suuk uuder the law of 1881), and eighteen under the law of 18'K5, while there have been scores of personal or individual wells sunk. There is no question us to the future of South Dakota, provided a water supply can be obtained, and there is also no question but an abundance of water can be had over a part of the territory pro vided means can be obtained to bring it to thesurfuce. There ure many theories as to the best manner to secure such means, but the general impression is that it must be done in some manner by the state, and under state supervision. Take, for in stance. the proposition to sink four wells in each township. These wells can be secured at a cost of $7,200 for the four and a half-inch well in size. Six percent bonds could be floated at par, and the interest thereon would be lens than $.1.50 per quarter section. This nater could, in most sections, be used for irrigating pur. poses, and it could all be run through ra vines, creeks and streams into dams, small lakes and the like, and the amount of water on the surface would attract rainfall, evaporate in dews and kill all the hot winds. It would not onlv iuciease largely the yield of grain and grass, but it would also supply an abundance of water, which would make South Dakota the greatest stock grow ing state in the Union. This question the farmers have deter mined to make the one and all absorb ing one before the coming body of law making. The irrigation convention which has iust Jbeen in session at A interview tho secretary, Mr. Morton, recently said: "Wh»at value as an animal food is great. Hut the wheat must be used carefully, und with due regard to the habits and environment of the ani mals, aud the forage f«»ed a'company ing it. Growing and fattening ani mals are found to thrive upon it. The profit in feeding wheat whvn that cereal and corn at the name price is greater than rding the latter Wh« at weighs 7 per cent heavier than corn. Wheat is, weight for weight equally good for fat tening animals, and better for growing animals. The South Dakota experi ment station has made a very coin pre henaive and exhaustive experiment in feeding ground wheat to hogs. The pork from that feeding is pronounced superior to any other. The feeding should be begun by giving very small quantities to the animal. It should be mixed with chopped hay or with other grain. The department will furnish leaflets on the subject to all county newspapers. The prospect is that the Argentine wheat crop, which is harvest ed this month, will not be as satisfact ory a* it was last year, nor their wheat as merchantable." be re garding the question of sinking wells for irrigation aud other purposes. That there will be a general inclination to re duce the expense of the state government to a minimum, there is no question, yet there is ulso a determination on the part of the taxpayers to secure such leg islation as will insure a practical trial of the artesian well system, both by irriga tion ami surface, lake and stream sup plies HO that the theory of attraction in this manner may be demonstrated throughout the artesian belt. I^The third biennial report of the stats engineer of irrigation i» now in the hands of the printer, and from the proof sheets many questions of interest are deducted. Among the many reports of experiments of irrigation are the following: Lorenna Huswell of Condee, Spink county, has this, his second year, tested a ten acre tract, with the following results: Gar den truck to the amount of over $1,500 has beeu sold, while the expense of dis tributing the water was but $75. W. O. IlisHCund,("a vour, Beadle coun ty, irrigated nineteen acres, for which he paid the township $1 per acre tor the water. Kesult: Wheat, U2 bushels per acre oats, 50 bushels onions, 250 bushels, aud potatoes, uncultivated, 85 bushels. Alouzo Melville Huron: Wheat, bushels oats. U5 bushels potatoes, 280 bushels millet, 4 tons per acre, Mr. Mel ville will irrigate sixty acres next year, and claims that the extra crops each year would pay for the sinking of a well each year. Kearney, Neb., have gathered much valuable informa tion upon various irrigation processes from which we select as follows, as be ing particular interesting to farmers in theDakotas: William Stafford, of Jules burg, gave his expert nee with irriga tion by means of windmills and reser voirs. A good reservoir, he said, can be built by banking up the sod, turning in the water and ullowing stock to tramp down the wet ground. It will soon hold water as well as if cemented. He did not think water could be pump ed with profit if raised more than 50 feet, aud believed tw»t Damping watejr was too expensive. NEW CURRENCY BILL SI IISTITI TE FOB SECRKTANY CARLISLE'S MEASURE, Anions Other Chnngeii, It Relieves the Nitfloiial Hunks From lie Ar blfcrnry ProtUion of OrttuniKtug Under the New System. Washington, Dec. 23. -After confer ences between the Democratic mem bers of the house committee on bank ing and currency, and with the ap proval of the secretary of the treas ury, Mr. Springer Introduced a substi tute for the Carlisle currency bill. It Is substantially a now measure, al though some of the sections of the original measure are retained in the new bill. The new bill is arranged so as to show the new features in pa rentheses. The tirst section is us fol lows: That (so much of) all acts and parts of acts as require or authorize the de posit of United States bonds to secure circulating notes hsued by national banking associations (or as require such associations to deposit or keep on deposit United States bonds for any purposv* except as security for public money) be and the same here by is rejealed (as to associations tak ing out circulation under this act), and such notes shall not contain the state ment that they are so secured. Section 7 Is entirely new, and takes the place of a section which has been eliminated. It is as follows: Section 7—That evtry i ational bank ing association hereafter organized and having bonds to deposit to secure circulation, may withdraw such bonds upon the deposit of lawful money of the United States, now provided by law, and thereafter such association may take out circulation under this act and be entitled to all the rights, privileges and immunities herein con ferred. Section 8 specifies that the portion of the national banking act to be re pealed is limited to so much of sec tion 12 "as directs the secretary of the treasury to receive deposits of gold and to issue certificates thereon." Section 9 is substantially the same as In the original bill. Section 10, providing for state banks, Is also the same as in the original bill, except that in the restrictions on state banks a new provision is made that the guaranty fund maintained bv them may include "curret v certiiicates is sued under section 5193 of the Re vised Statutes." "Whenever the secretary of the treasury and the controller of the cur rency shall be satisfied that any bank ing corporation duly organized under the laws of any state, and which transacts no other than a banking business, as provided in this section, has been incorporated under the laws of the state in which it is located, which law requires that the stock holders hall be individually liable for the redemption of its circulating notes to the full extent of their ownership of stock, and that such laws require that the circulating notes thereof shall constitute a first lien upon all the as sets of the bank, and also that such laws require such bank to keep on de posit at all times with an otficial of the state authorized by law to receive and hold the same, a guarantee fund as re quired by the fourth paragraph of this section, they shall issue to said bank a certificate to that effect. There upon said bank may issue its notes as provided bv this act. and thereafter the tax of 10 per cent, heretofore im posed by law upon the circulation of the notes of state banks, shall not be assessed or collected upon the notes of such bank, unless it appears that said bank has issi.ed circulating notes in excess of ?." per cent of its paid up and unimpaired capital, or that its capital is impaired and has remained so for thirty days, or that the bank has not kept on deposit with the state official authorized by law to receive and hold the same, a guarantee fund as required in the fourth para era ph of this section, or that said bank has not promptly redeemed its notes in lawful money at par on demand at its principal office or at any or more of its branch offices, if it has branch of fices, and that no person or corpora tion, other than the bank issuing such notes, in violation of the provisions of this act, shall be liable to the tax of 10 per cent upon the circulating notes of state banks as now provided by law." BRAND TUK CLAIM AS FALSE. World's Fair Officials Ktpoie to an A ward. Chicago, III., Dec. 24.—One of the odd results of the World's Fair Is the claim now made to awards by some who were not even exhibitors. Offi cials of the Exposition have not as yet taken final action in the matter, be lieving the quick wit of the people will detect the spurious claims. Hut to the case of a i-Tew York baking powder, that has been widely adver tising an award, the attention of the Chief of Awards of Agriculture, has been directed. He brands the claim of this pretender as false, declaring "Neither the records of this depart ment. nor the official catalogue of the World's Columbian Exposition, show that this New York company was not exhibitor consequently it could not have received an award at the World's Fair." Those who fairly won the honors at the Fair seem disposed to treat this fraud as any other fraud should be treated. The Price Baking Powder Company, of Chicago, having receiv ed the highest award, say they are convinced their claims, and those of all other holders ot rightful honors, will be fully vindicated by the public. REGARDING ARMENIA. Mr* Jfrwett's Order* Huve Hot Bee* Revoked. Washington, Dec. 22. Secretory Oresham listened patiently to a depu tation of ministers to-day in regard to Armenia. lie said in reply that Mr. •Tewett, tho United Stah*s COJSUI at Sivas, had been instructed to accom pany the Turkish investigating com mission to the district in which the al leged atrocities were committed for the purpose of making a full and Im partial investigation for the informa tion of this government. He also said that Mr. Jewett would not be a mem ber of the Turkish commission, but would act entirely irdependent of that body. The latest information from Constantinople is to the effect that the Turkish government does not desire to have Mr. Jewett accompany the commission under the restrictions im posed by his instructions. Ilis orders have not been revoked, however. In regard to the last two points the secre tary was guarded in his reply. lie gave the ministers to understand, however, that he should recommend congn^ss to increase the number of consuls, and would do what he con sistently could to ameliorate the condi tion of the Armenians, IT WORKS ALL NIGHT.
