Their business is one so full of detail that if the little k' things are not ' looked after, even the largest crops and best prices will not save from loss. It is the lack of the close attention to de tails that farming requires that has caused the failure of schemes of bonanza farming. What is done by hired help, not under personal super vision of the employer's eye, is apt to do only eye service. It is as true practically as when first uttered, that the hireling fleeth because he is a hireling. The workman in -any oc cupation who always makes his em ployer's interesfhisown is invaluable. Yet if he would" but regard it rightly that interest is identical with his. The keen competition for intelligent, reliable help insures it what it can earn, for if one employer will not pay for faithful service, another wilL It is therefore not likely that farm wages will soon, if ever, materially decline. The demand for young men in city employments has for" many years taken the most active and en terprising more than it will, we be lieve, in the near future. Business life in cities is precarious. Few mer chants can go through life without a failure at its middle or at the close. The fact is becoming recognized that equal executive ability on the farm will, on the average, produce as much wealth and more comfort than it can in average business and commercial city enterprises. Except in the item of farm help, and possibly also in that, the cost of getting farm work done has declined, the aggregate ex pense Is greater, but it is or may be offset by still larger results. One man with improved machinery can do so much more work that not only does he earn better pay, but something is or ought to be left over for the farmer if he does his part. There is also great reduction in the prices of most improved agricultural machinery. As various patents run out the cost from the manufacturers will be greatly lessened. This is to a greater extent than is thought true now in machinery where there is rightful competition of firms manufacturing under different pat ents. Any one now can buy reap ers, mowers, drills and cultivators 20 to 30 per cent, cheaper than was charged for them a decade ago. The greatest reduction of farm ex penses, however, must be relative by increasing amount and value of its products. Rich and well-drained land produces so much more than that in poor condition as to give the farmer who owns the best farm a great ad vantage. He and his hired help may work no harder, and possibly not so many hours, but they accomplish more, and thereby produce at less cost. This is the only practical way to make farming pay. The man who does not improve his farm, and waits for a high price to help out his poor farming, will learn when the good prices come that he has so little to sell that it does not profit him much On the other hand, if he conducts his business so as to produce large crops these can usually be sold at some profit in any condition of the market, j American Cultivator.

The Maryland agricultural experi ment station reports the best method of preserving forage and the compara tive value of. the same plant, harTest ed and stored in different wars, form part of the general problem of forage and feeding. The system rfsilos and ensilage, is no longer an experiment. Iractical farmers and dairymen in all "parts' of the country have demon strated the direct profit and theinci- dental advantages of preserving a portion of their forage crops in the iarm. of ensilage, so as to give the -mtfmate, of all kinds, a fair prejotv r tfoeV of succulent food, thronghowt J she year. Ensilage is fonnd as proftt ale for soppiementing psstaragein E M-T the most prod wctire, the eastei to raise, and, all considered, the best. But clovers, the cow-pea and the soja bean, make a aore nutritions article of ensilage, and may be advantageous ly mixed with corn, inthesHo. Other plants and waste products, some un palatable in other forms, make fairly good ensilage. Ensilage is no better Jbod for stock than good roots, but- in nine case out of ten, ensilage can be produced and handled easier and cheaper than roots, and is just as good for stock food. A good many points regarding silos and ensilage remain unknown or uncertain. Consequently ensilage of different plants is yearly made at the Station, managed in different ways, fed to different classes of stock, in various combinations, and the ob servations made are duly recorded. LIVE STOCK. Age Tests. A heifer has no rings on her horns until the is 2 years of age, and ne is added each year thereafter. You can therefore tell the age of a cow with tolerable accuracy by counting the rings on her horns and adding two to the number. The bull has no rings, as a rule, until he is 5 years old, so to tell his age after that period, add five to the number of rings. The better, way to tell the age is by the teeth, which is of course the only way -with polled cattle. What are called the milk teeth gradually disappear in front. At the end of three years the second pair of permanent teeth are well grown, at four years the third pair, and at five the fourth and last pair have appeared, and at this time the central pair are of full size. At seven years a dark line, caused by the wearing of the teeth, appears on all of them, and on the central pair a circular mark. At eight years this circular mark appears on all of them, and at nine years the central pair be gins to shrink, and the third at eleven. After this .period the age can only be determined by the degree of shrinkage generally. At fifteen the teeth are nearly all gone. Bon Breeding. The special demand for certain classes of horses is oroughtto be well known by everybody, but judging from the fact that so many scrubs are yet bred is evidence enough, says the Sural and Stockman, that this de mand is either not known or not ap preciated. There is a demand for good horses of all breeds. The market is not overstocked in any direction whatever. The heavy draft horses are always jn demand: the Hamble tonian sells readily enough; the Morgan is always in demand: the Coacher is not imported or bred largely enough to satisfy the demand for that class of horses.- What then shall we breed? From what we have said the proper answer would seem to be: "Breed anything but the scrubs." There are horses at work in Chicago that cost only from ten to forty dollars: and they do the work at which they are put. Some of them are not very old horses either. But they are scrubs to begin with and per haps having been bred from defective sires or dams have been good for noth ing from the beginning. They are not the kind of horses that the public in general want. Looking over our weekly horse sales it is not difficult to see what kind of horses we ought to breed if we want to make anything from horse breeding. Horses are like all other kinds of stock n the matter of profit, they must be the best to be profitable. THE DAIRY. Feeding of Caws sad Calves. Experiments at the Iowa Station gave the following facts or indica tions: Quality of milk so far as measured by its percentage of fat was changed by feed to a much greater degree than was quantity. Two thirds of the increase in average gross yield of butter fat was due to im proved quality of the milk, and only one-third to increased milk-flow. Corn is not a perfect milk ration. Substitution of bran and oilmeal re sult in increase of quantity and qual ity of milk. A ration of skim-milk and ground flaxseed compares favor ably with a new ration for young calves. The larger gain came from the whole milk but a part of it was partly due to the individuality of the calves and good results and a thrifty growth were made on sldm-mllk and ground flaxseed. The skim-milk calves wre interrupted less in growth by weaning than the whole milk calves. A. saving in value of butter fat alone of Sl?ll per month on each calf was effected by substituting ground flax seed. The cost of producing a pound of gain estimatingnewmilkat 87 cents per 100 pounds and slam-milk at 15 cents per 100, gain 1 cent per pound, hay to per ton, and flaxseed meal 3 cents per pound, was 7.6 cents for the fresh Milk ration and 5 cents for the skim-milk ration. THE POULTRY-YARD. A secret of winter egg production is warm quarters for the fowls, writes A. B. Stayvesant, in Farm and Home- A. friend who always has quantities of eggs when they bring 35 cents to 40 cents per dozen, has a novel place forhis hens' bed rooin. It is in the side of a haymow, which keeps the birds warn all winter. To take advantage of such accommoda tions the space mast be bmilt in the ssde of the hay before the hay is put in.

Treatment ior XJce. The best fumigation known to'us is as follows: Take a small furnace, or stove, or iron kettle, into which place a pound or two of crude roll sulphur, broken up. Close the doors and win dows(during the absence of the fowls in the forenoon) and set the contents of the .vessel on fire in the center of the floor. Shut the house up tight and leave it to smoke a couple of hours. Then open all the windows and doors for thorough ventilation. If a poultry house is infested with red mites or red spider lice, we sug gest the use of kerosene, as it is said that kills them at once. As their haunts are the cracks and crevices of the roosting-poles, the sides of the DUiiaings, nest boxes, etc, they are easily destroyed. Where they are numerous, go over the whole inside of the building with hot whitewash, using it quite freely, so as to fill every crack and crevice. Clean out and whitewash the nest boxes, clean up the floor and put in fresh sand. Kansas Farmer. THE HOUSEHOLD. A Baby JamptE.

In September last I was enabled to open to settlement in the territory of Okla homa 900,000 acres of land, all of which was tnten tm hv settlers in a sinsde day. The rush for these lands was accompanied by a great deal of excitement, but was, happily, free from incidents of violence.

Deserving and impatient settlers are waiting to occupy these lands, and I urgently recom mend that a special deficiency appropriation be promptly made of the small amount needed, so that the allotments may be com pleted and the surplus lands opened Jn time to permit the settlers to get upon their home steads in the early spring.
