The run of 17,000 cattle came ir, yesterday, and 13.000 today, several thousand head more than were ex pected late last week. Chicago was deluged with 37,000 yesterday which is having a bad influence here, though declines are not great. Steady to ten lower describes the market on beef steers, other cattle steady to weak to day. Stock cattle and feeders are active, and are holding up steady, the break of 15 to 25 cents in Chicago yesterday was not fully relaxed Jiere, because Chicago also suffers from liberal marketing of stock at eastern markets at this season, which cuts off a" Targe share of the order buying business there. The sUimp in order buying is not felt here so much, as local packers take practically all the killing stuff at this season. Top steers Ijere -today were barely out of the short fed class, selling at $10.10, bulk of the native steers $7.00 toSO.00. Breaks in the price are quickly re paired, and though runs are heavier in the last tw o weeks than a year ago, the market has not been undermined to any noticeable extent. Range cattle offerings have fallen off this week, though some good Colorado killing steers sold at $7.00 to $7.50, and good cows and heifers at $5.50 to $M.5. Quarantine receipts are be ginning to include oil mill' steers, which are selling this week at $0.50 to 47.25. weighing around 1000 pounds. Low grade southern cattle sell at $3.25 to $4.50. " , ' Hogs arrived to the number of 22. 000 head today, w hich was 3000 more than the early estimate. The run yesterday counted out in- the same liberal manner, as compared w ith the first estimate. The demand Is wide, and the liberal receipts are resulting in only moderate declines, and with closing markets strongest nearly every session for ten days. Prices are 5 to 10 lower today, top $7-77 1-2, bulk $7.45 to $7.70. Sheep and lambs are stronger today top lambs $7.05, same as top last week, but otherwise unequaled since last June. Receipts are disappointing !yers, 5)00,'here today, far below first expectaions. Ewes are worth $."5.80 to $4.50. Strong prices ahead are counted on. J. A. Rickart, Market Correspondent.

Don't Burn Straw Piles When you see a farmer burn his straw pile, you can make up your mind that he is a poor farmer. An avaerage straw pile contains about 500 pounds of nitrogen and 100 pounds or potassium. If these elements were purchased commercially they would represent about $250. In additon to this the straw contains a great deal of organic matter "of humus one of the things that our soil needs verj badly. Straw makes very good manure and has an unlimited value. Ex.

I believe the possibilities of "wind- mill Irrigation" are great in western Kansas. In" western Kansas less water is required to produce the same results than in a country which is obliged to depend entirely on irriga tion and wind power is cheap. I have given the subject of water pumping by windmills a study because 1 aiu putting in such a plant on my farm in Scott county. It includes a reser voir covering one acre and a dike made of earth and 6 feet high, sur rounded by five 12-foot direct stroke Althouse windmills. The pumps are 6 inch cylinders, and there is a four inch discharge pipe and the depth of the water is 27 feet. The cost com plete, will be Something less than $1000, hiring all the work done. . For. such woik the windmill and pump cylinder should be selected with care. They should be the best. I am using the wood open;wheeFjnill. A great many of the large plants cost too much for the average man to . HelJ who does not "kYlow the real val ue . oi irrigation, inereiore xne wina mm v proposition will appeal to many. " Such'a plant can be madded too, not necessarily by more windmills, hut by installing a larger pump, and other power, and pumping into the same reservoir that the windmills do, only using the larger pump in cases of emergency," It won't take long for a ?l,uoo irrigation plant to make money enough for1 its owner to install a more expensive plant if he desires. Another eood feature is the wind mill plant does not . require the big water-bearing strata "that is needed to supply the larger plants, where a large volume of water is pumped from one well. Mr. Fred Mahler, qf Scotn county, has installed a wifMmill pumping plant, of 10 mills, seven 4-cy'linders, and- three 0-inch with a reservoir covering 7-J10 of aft acre. He has successfully' seeded 50 acres to alfalfa growing as a nurse crop, barley and oats and getting a good yield. I con sider Mr. Mahler's plant has paid for itself this year. Iruthis locality, where we do not have to depend entirely upon irriga tion, winter irrigation is abouall we need. There is very little evapora ting at that time of year, and by stor ing the water In the ground then, we get the benefit of it the next growing season, and for a good many crops and seasons. As to the possibilities " of windmill plant the size of Mr. Mahler's, or the size of the one I am installing: If Mr. Mahler will thoroughly irrigate bis 50 acres of new alfalfa this winter this insure two good crops the coming season. Then he will have the use of his plant for a like amount of land in' the spring, and in the following spring finish out the remainder or the 100 acres. I believe that it Is possible with a plant of this kind to successjully irrigate 100 of alfalra where it is not more .than 50 feet to water. I have recently learned that a wind mill pumping plant in western Nebraska where they have to go 200 feet to water proving a success. While in this locality we are so lortunate as to nave an inexiiaustiDie underflow of pure soft water at a shallow depth, there is a iarge part of western Kansas that cannot be ir rigated successfully any other wat Other way than by the w indmill, as the water supply is not sufficient to supply a large amount from one well, as is required where the larger and more expensive pumping plant is in stalled. I believe the time is fast approaching, when these large farms of the richest farms in the world will be cut up into 40 and 80 acre farms, and then the windmill pump-, ing plant will make a stronger appeal than ever E.
