AtlRICULTRiAL. - Ir requires a man well versed in agrie.W toral knowledge to he able to prodiutce the best results from the soil, but when a crop is raised it requires eommerdal ibility to ilarketait in a way to !make the -best ofi. To lnderstand this thoroughly it is neces tary for the farmer to keep himself well posted in regard to the laws of siuiply and demand. The States tarmer must study the markets of the world, and keep posted upon thie prducets of adl nations. Here in Mkon toa we have only to know our o'n coun try, its capabilities, facilities and !neessities, and to know the result of a season's work, wlen cotmpleted, fr'om wkich a man, who is thoroughly posted can form a correct con .ehtion.

AN 'IIM.EN0E CROP. Oliver Dalrymple has Iive stean threshers now at work on his 4;000 acre tfinr at O(as selton, each one tnhreshing an average of 1,000 bushels per day. The grain is hauled directly to the ear as fast as threshed, and shipped to New Yoi-k, via Duluth and the lakes. He loat.ks and torwainds 15 cars per day. At 350 busheis to the car, thl crop on this one place will make 257 car loads. The yield,' from what has been threshed so far, is estimated at 90,O(i) sbels-an average of '23. bushels pir acre. 'Add to this the 3, 00 acres on the Grandin' fartn, in which Mr. Dalrymple has .a half interest, and which will auerage-equally well, the two farms will produce, 168,750 bushels,of wheat this year. A nice little plum to have, surely,-Fargo Tines. THE LOOUT8 IN KANSAS. Professor ltiley writes to the Scientific Aerieican:' In answer to many questions now beinc asked, I would s ty-that, from all that can ascertained, there is no danger whatever of another geneitl invasion of locusts into Kansas and adjacent States this fall. This has been mry optinion all along, and the ex-' perience of the past two months strengthens it.

The Rocky Mountain locust got: the upper hand during the excessively dry seasons of the early part of the preientu decade, and has been so numerois SJot the past three or four years that its e~iemies have-ridted in. plenty, and at last, inthic' turn,, ha.ve increased in ordiuttely. *. * * Nature. maintains her average in the long run, and a few seasons of drouth and locust 'ravages are apt to be followed by a period of more rainy seasons and locust decrease."
